Gender Benders 14 

New classes were offered this 
year, proving that men can take 
Home Ec and women can take 
shop. 



Diet 16 

For many students, college is the 
first chance to get out and live on 
your own. Because of this, many 
students' diet becomes a problem. 



Sexual Harrassment 30 

An uproar throughout the coun- 
try concerns sexual harrassment. 
What it is, what it isn't, and who's 
involved? 



Cheating 44 

Anyone who says that all stu- 
dents are honest 100% of the 
time is lying. For some students, 
cheating is the easiest way to 
"make the grade."

The Nursing program is one of 
Butler's most popular programs. 
With over 900 students, Nursing 
is an important aspect of the cam- 
pus.

THE REST OF THE 

STODY 

Students returning from summer vacation found that 
many things have changed since last year. 

The most obvious change in the school was the number 
of students. In a year when enrollment at The Wichita 
State University was down, Butler's enrollment numbers 

soared. 

Parking became a problem. Because of the increase, 
students found themselves having to park on the grass, only 
to receive parking tickets. The reserved faculty parking 
spaces were now open for students to park in; the only 
reserved spaces on campus were for Dorm sponsors Dan 
and Patti McFadden. 

But all of the changes at Butler didn't take place in the 
parking lot. There was also a change in 
the administration. A new Dean of 
Students, Bill Rinkenbaugh, took 
over when Ev Kohls retired at the end 
of last year. 

With Butler expanding the off- 
campus sites, adding classes, and 
changing administration, it was 
obvious that the year would be 
interesting to say the least. And that's 
the rest of the story.

THE STORY IN 



L 



• \ 



Just like the folks featured on Lifestyles of the Rich 
and Famous, Butler students were rich and fa- 
'. mous in their own way. They were famous where 
they worked. They were famous at parties and at 
school functions. They were rich in personality, 
spirit, and life. What the student chose to do reflected the 
individual's personality. 

More than 6,500 strong, Butler students were of all 
shapes and sizes, colors, and faiths. The activities they 
participated in varied as well, from cruising around, eating 

out with friends, partying, shoot- 
ing basketball, playing football, 
watching television, and jumping 
off bridges. Different activities the 
students attended included home- 
comings, plays, and children's 
theater, sporting events, and eat- 
ing out. Some students were af- 
fected by overcrowding, sexual harassment, and the prob- 
lems of eating right. 

Champagne wishes and caviar dreams comprised the 
Utopian world for the average student. Those dreams 
were challenged to make this the most phenomenal year. 
And that's just part of the story in Lifestyles.

Put away that beach towel and drag out the backpack, it's that time of the year -the first 
week of school. The first few days are looked upon differently depending on the person. 
For the freshman, it's the fear of the unknown: "Will I find the right classroom?";while 
the returning sophomores carry a more relaxed attitude; "I hope the syllabus hasn't 
changed so I can use my roommate's notes." 
No matter what category one fell in, almost everyone had to endure the "introduce the 
person sitting next to you to the rest of the class." This situation was faced with 
enthusiasm by many. "I think it helps because you get to know more people that way," said 
Susan Hancock, Peck sophomore. 

On the other hand, some felt this caused more embarrassment than it was worth. "For me, it caused 
embarrassment because I have never been good at group things. I could introduce myself to someone else 
one on one, but I have never been a vocal person in audience situations," said Alicia Dale, Udall freshman. 
Another situation that was confronted was the attendance policy. According to the student handbook, 
"Any student who has missed the equivalent of three classes will be sent an attendance reminder stating that 
the student must begin attending classes regularly by a given date or they may be dropped from the class." 
Many students feel this policy is sufficient. "I don't think a person needs to miss more than three classes, 
unless they are very ill," said Callie Hinz, Remington sophomore. Dale felt the same, "1 do not agree with 
students who skip a lot of classes. I value my education, and I can't see why other students don't." 

Classrooms weren't the only places with action. The administration building had a steady stream of 
students coming through. "We had students paying their bills, enrolling in the last minute, changing and 
dropping classes, and trying to get settled in the dorms. It was very busy around here but it is finally settling 
down," said Dona Larimer. 

The crazy ordeal of moving into the dorms went smoothly according to dorm manager Dan McFadden. 
"Check-in was easy. I believe our group of young people here are better behaved-even more than last year. 
We had our normal type o( problems, such as students getting homesick and roommate trouble, but we are 
working all of that out. For the most part, it is going very well." 

The resident assistants also found registration easier than expected. "I thought it moved smoothly. There 
were no long lines, and it was spaced out with no large groups coming in all at once," said Wilson Winters, 
Chicago sophomore and RA. in the West Dorm. 

It appeared the first week went well with only a few complaints, such as the climate in the classrooms. 
"They need to turn the air conditioners down, especially in the music and art buildings. You'll turn blue 
if you're in there very long," said Dale. 

A few of the problems have been heard before. "There needs to be a cement sidewalk and a system of 
lighting leading to the East Dorm," said Greg Mickey, sophomore. 

The number one complaint heard by frustrated commuting students was that of the limited parking space 
available. "There is definitely a need for a more adequate parking lot," proclaimed Hancock. Hinz agreed, 
"I suggest they expand the lots." 

Other than that, school was busy but fun for many. "Even with all of my classes starting, I have had enough 
time to get my homework done, watch television, and go out a couple of times," said Dale.

Where should I park? My choices were the grass and any place I chose to make up because 
the parking lot was always full. Parking was a problem because of the increase in 
enrollment for 1992. In fact, the faculty had to give up their parking spaces to allow 
students a place to park. 
The preliminary statistics reported that enrollment increased 20 percent in El 
Dorado, 43 percent in Andover, five percent in McConnell and 34 percent in the 
Community Sites. The Outreach locations included any location where classes were 
taught. Those were Allied Health Nursing, Augusta Resource Center, Augusta High School, Council 
Grove High School, the El Dorado bowling alley, El Dorado Health Club, Eureka High School, Eureka 
Resource Center, Flinthills Vocational Technical School, area hospitals, Madison High School, Marion 
High School, Marion Service Center, Peabody High School, Remington High School, Rose Hill High 
School, Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital, Sedgwick County Center, Towanda Grade School, Wichita 
State University, and El Dorado Correctional Facility. 

Paul Kyle, registrar, attributed the growth to the quality education and small classes. "Butler has 
been pushing quality education the last six years and people are beginning to see the results," said Kyle. 

Not only was the parking problem worse than in the years past, but people had problems this year 
finding a space close enough to the classroom buildings. Some students resorted to parking on the grass. 
Administrators were looki ng into alternatives for parking and plans for expanding the east parking lot were 
in the making. When the math, science, and nursing building was added, more parking would be provided. 

Administrators were looking into possible alternatives for a new dorm or leasing a building o{{ 
campus, according to Kyle. 

Lack of parking was not the only result of the increase in enrollment, lack of space for campus 
residents was also a problem. "The biggest problem is the fact that we had at one point almost 80 people 
on a waiting list to get into the dorms. Several of them found apartments or they are commuting. Others 
decided to go to another school or not to go at all. More housing needs to be available. I'm not sure what 
the answer is. Plans are being discussed to build another dorm or to have a private investor build apartments 
close to campus, but nothing is certain at this point, " said Dan McFadden, manager of the East Dorms. 

There were more international students here, according to McFadden, than ever before. This year 
there was a total of six in the dorms and they were from the Marshall Islands, Spain, Australia, Yugoslavia, 
Korea, and Venezuela. "One of the girls was without a room for a few days and was stuck living in the lobby 
of a plex until a vacant room was found," said McFadden. 

For the time, the answer to the limited number of parking spaces was to arrive at school early. Jason 
Pirtle, Augusta sophomore, said he wolce up earlier specifically to find a close spot. 

Finding a parking space was a problem for Charity Bloom, Douglass freshman. "I live in the East 
Dorms and I have to park clear on the other side of the West Dorms way out in the boonies." 

More parking space was in the plans for next year. Until then the students and teachers had to 
park where no man has parked before. 



OVERCROWDING

Little boys are made of snakes and snails and puppy dog tails. Little girls are made of sugar 
and spice and everything nice. Who says that this rhyme couldn't be changed around a 
little bit? The classrooms seemed to change along with the rhyme. More and more 
women were enrolled in predominately male classes, while more men were enrolled in 
traditional women's classes. 
Eureka freshman Kathleen Quigley was enrolled in Agriculture Economics. She took 
the class because she wanted to major in that field. With this degree she will be eligible 
to manage a co-op or be an agricultural loan officer at a bank. 
"I want to go into agriculture law. On our ranch in Nebraska if we have any problems we call an agricultural 
lawyer, and he will know exactly what to do, whereas, a regular lawyer might not know much about the 
problem," said Quigley. 

She admitted that she felt intimidated by the men in her class. "I had never farmed before and most of 
the guys in my class had grown up on one. Therefore, they could speak more intelligently on the subjects 
than I could," said Quigley. 

Another Agriculture Economics student was Augusta sophomore Jenelle Nivens. Although she didn't 
have any background in agriculture, she knew former teacher, Jim Johndrow, and he got her into the class. 
"It's different from anything else I've taken, I feel like I will benefit in the future," said Nivens. "Even 
though the class was full of guys, they didn't make me feel weird, but I was real nervous." 

Women were not the only ones to break the tradition; one male student enrolled in ballet. Scranton 
sophomore Kevin Ripley enrolled in ballet because he was in the music program at Butler. He enjoyed 
performing for people and wanted to continue after he graduated from Butler. 

To Ripley, taking ballet was more of a workout than a dance class. A couple of Ripley's friends teased 
him about being in ballet, so he encouraged his friends to visit the class and see if they could make it through 
one class period. 
Ripley admited that being in a room full of women was a little awkward. "It's a little bit strange, but I know 
three-fourths of the women in the class. They don't think anything of it, and I don't feel uncomfortable." 
Aside from majoring in music, he had another motive for joining ballet class, Valerie Mack, the ballet 
instructor. "Valerie is a great instructor and an all around good person. I probably wouldn't have enrolled 
if she had not have taught it. She has been a great inspiration to me," said Ripley. 

As little girls and little boys grow up and change so do their views. The rhymes that we learned as children 
don't always hold true. The outlook of the students was to be what they wanted to be and do what they 
wanted to do. 

Men could dance on a stage. 
Women could work on a farm. 
Why should it matter to any of us? 
Gender-Bending never caused any harm.

Finding waysllo satisfy

Throughout the year students found the time to keep up with their studies, their 
social life, and their nutrition. 
Wichita Sophomore Rochelle Champion preferred McDonalds over the 
cafeteria. 'The cafeteria doesn't serve things I'm used to. Sometimes I like the 
food. I've got to learn to like it or I will starve," said Champion. 
However, if Champion had a choice of eating out, eating at the cafeteria, or 
going home; she would go home because she was used to the food served at home. 
Alicia Dale, Udall freshman, said the cafeteria food was better than the entrees 
served at her high school. Dale also said that the cafeteria had a variety of selection. 

'The eating times need to be longer or at least later. When you go to eat you want to eat, not 
wait in line," said Dale. 

Food Service director Bruce Garrels admitted that overcrowding was one fault of the cafeteria. 
"One of the things that hinder us is the facility. We are hampered by the lack of space. Between 
1 1 :30 to noon the cafeteria is crowded, and it is hard to find a place to sit." 

Garrels said that the only problems he had as director was not getting enough student imput. 
Commenting on the quality of the cafeteria food, Garrels said, "The food is better here. Students 
are paying about two dollars a meal. Plus, we try to put the extra touch. It's difficult to cook like Mom 
does, but we do take care of the students pretty good. We don't get many complaints. Of course, we're 
not perfect, but we do have many positives." 

However, many students who commuted did not get the opportunity to eat in the cafeteria. Local 
restaurants served as their daily nutrition. 

Whitewater sophomore Clint Patty said his favorite dining spots were the Golden Corral and 
Pizza Hut. "They both have a great lunch deal perfect for dining for two especially if you're trying 
to woo a significant other," said Patty. 

Haysville freshman Katie Feldman said that she enjoyed fast food restaurants such as Sonic, 
Spangles, Subway, and McDonalds because they were fast, easy and cheap. 

"My eating habits haven't changed that much. I still eat the same amount of greasy food," said 
Feldman.

Fall Homecoming commemorated the 65th anniversary of Butler. Many activities were 
planned to celebrate homecoming, including the dedication of the new Fine Arts 
buildings, and the theatre department's production White Liars and Black Comedy. 
A minor flaw showed up during the crowning ceremony: the Queen was missing. 
Nicki Swift, Florence sophomore and nominee from the volleyball team, was playing at 
a volleyball tournament and was unable to attend. "1 was disappointed that 1 missed the 
crowning ceremony, but I had a game to play," said Swift. The other half of the royal 
couple was Ervin Games, Wichita sophomore and nominee from the basketball team. 
The event had begun on shaky ground with the election of the candidates. Student Senate changed the 
nomination process and by the time some activity groups realized this, the voting process was already under 
way. The music department convinced those in charge to allow them to write in their candidates. Their 
aggressiveness paid off when their candidates were chosen for the final five. 

"I found it an honor that the music students respected me enough to choose me as their candidate. It was 
also an honor for Craig Shultze and me to be one of the final candidates since we were write ins," said Tara 
Robertson, Milton sophomore. 

Friday night marked the dedication of the $1.5 million Fine Arts expansion and of theErman B. White 
Art Gallery. Close to a hundred people toured the renovated buildings. The 330 donors to the Fine Arts 
Drive including Tom and Helen White who donated $50,000, were recognized. The White's donation 
funded the construction of the art gallery. 
The Headliners performed "Dream the Impossible Dream" commissioned as a memorial forTcrri Maness, 
class of 1985. 

The Grizzlies tackled the Greyhounds, ranked eighth in the nation. "We had lost two games before that. 
Players were quitting and giving up. We knew we had to pull together and win," said Brad Owings, Overland 
Park sophomore. 

The Honeybears and the Headliners performed at half-time. Students, parents, spectators, and alumni 
rallied their team on to a close victory of 24-2 1 . "Once the crowd began to notice that the team got into 
the game, they got into it as well," said Kevin Graham, Kansas City sophomore. 

The victory made the Walnut River Festival, held in downtown El Dorado, more the reason to celebrate. 
Community churches provided the food, and booths and exhibits were set up along the streets. The 
Headliners also performed. 

The final flaw dealt with the homecoming dance. There was only one problem - there wasn't a dance. 
Dan McFadden, Student Senate advisor, said that because of the lack of student participation last year only 
alumni were asked to the dance. "There should have been a dance afterwards. They could have dedicated 
the gym to us and just let us have fun. Homecoming was a bigger deal in high school than it is here. Here 
the homecoming is for the alumni. It's looked at as not big deal," said Graham, who expressed the attitude 
of many students.

It was in the air — Winter Homecoming week, sponsored by Student Senate, Feb. 15- 
19, promised to be organized and event-filled. 
Taking a break officially started the week off. Monday was President's Day and a 
Teacher's In-Service Day which gave students a three-day weekend. 
On Tuesday, "Guess the Kisses Day," drew students to the homecoming candidate 
booth in the Student Union. Guessing how many Hershey Kisses were in a jar, the 
student who came closest to guessing the right amount won the Kisses. The winner was 
Billi Ross, Auburn freshman, who guessed 550 kisses , nearest to the actual total of 553. 
Wednesday was Movie Night, which gave students a chance to watch Yk>dyguard, starring Kevin Costner 
and Whitney Houston. All students had to do was flash their ID card to get in free. 

"The movie itself was entertaining as well as the antics of the students. "It made the entire event enjoyable 
and worthwhile," said Jeff Welch, Burlington sophomore. 

Backwards Day came on Thursday. Those who got into the spirit of the day dressed backwards like the 
popular rapping duo, "Kriss Kross." Not too many people participated in this event but a few could be seen 
walking around "backwards." 

Friday rolled around with its event, Gold and Purple Day. This was a chance for the whole student body 
to dress up in Grizzly colors and show some spirit. 

Finally on Saturday, students and alumni attended the games and crowning of the royalty. Both the 
women and men basketball teams won against Seward County. The Lady Grizzlies took the win with a 80- 
63 score, "...and the 1993 Homecoming queen and king royalty is Joy Young and Wilson Winters." This 
was heard throughout the crowd at the game following the women's victory over Seward. Candidate 
finalists for the men were Vic Riggin and Travis Deewall. Candidate finalists for the women were Tamekia 
Drayer and Tina Smith. 
The men's team then took the court and clawed the opponent with a 96-67 victory . 
After that full week of activities and events homecoming festivities were not over. The traditional 
homecoming dance was still waiting to be danced. In the past dances at Buder, planned by the Student 
Senate, had not been very successful. The average attendance was around 30. Julie Lepak, Senate president, 
said she was surprised at the turnout for the dance held in the cafeteria. 

"Around 150 students showed up. Compared to last year this was a tremendous turnout. I think it was 
because we knew what the students wanted. There was also a lot more publicity and the word got out 
sooner," said Lepak. 

Another possible reason for the big turnout was the awarding of door prizes. This gave students the 
incentive to stay longer than usual. Door prizes included coupons for local restaurants, mugsT-shirts, pen 
sets, and cologne. Gift certificates included ones from Litwin's, the BCCC bookstore, and the El Dorado 
Health Club. Cash amounts of $10, $15, and $25 were also given away. 
The dance was free with a student ID. and so were snacks and soft drinks. 

Homecoming week turned out to be a big success as heard from many of the students. "I though t the dance 
was fun. They played a variety of music and had door prizes. The whole week really went well ," said Barbara 
Wheat, Eureka freshman.

Tricksters grope aroiniflin the

Lies, deceit, stolen kisses, and a game of touchy-feely in the dark were all part of the theater 
department's four nights of tricks with the presentation of Paul Shaffer's White Liars and 
Black Comedy. "In these plays we see a glimpse of the genius who wrote Equus and 
Amadeus," said director Bob Peterson. "I have always been a fan of Shaffer. I've wanted 
to present these plays for 20 years and I decided that the timing was right." 
The timing just happened to coincide with the opening of the new Fine Arts Building. 
'This is the first production in our newly renovated theater," said Peterson. "To move 
back into the theater space, sweep out the construction sawdust, relocate supplies and 
materials which survived endless moves this summer, and build and rehearse this production in five weeks 
may have been the biggest trick of all. I applaud the theater students for pulling it off like seasoned 
tricksters." 

Speaking of tricks, back to the production. White Liars introduced the audience to the life of fortune teller 
Sophie Lemberg, played by Wichita sophomore Jennifer Carra. Sophie, who spent her days reliving 
conversations with a past lover (Benton sophomore Stacey Hinnen), got caught up in the lies of a rock star 
(Wichita freshman Danny Roberts) and his manager (Eureka freshman James Patterson) who visited her 
parlor. 
Carra said, "This was the most difficult role I have ever done because I was on stage most of the time talking 
to myself." Despite the difficulty of the role, Carra said that she enjoyed doing it. "I had to put myself in 
her situation and do a character study of somone who was loony, but I enjoyed the relationship she had in 
her mind with her ex-lover." 

Black Comedy, which was in total contrast to White Liars, presented a night in the life of sculptor Brindsley 
Miller (Wichita freshman Casey Davis) who played tricks on everyone he knew, including "borrowing" his 
neighbor's priceless furniture and maintaining two girlfriends at once. The biggest trick of all, though, was 
on Brindsley the night a rich art patron was coming to look at hisscultptures. A blackout occurred leaving 
everyone in the dark and presenting the perfect setting for a night of mishaps and misunderstandings. 

Although the play was performed under full stage lights, in the characters' reality the action took place 
in a pitch black room. El Dorado sophomore Amy Harmon who played Carol Mclkett, Brindsley's fiancee, 
said that it was difficult pretending that it was dark under the bright lights. "You had to act like nothing 
was there, but you also had to be aware o( your surroundings," said Harmon, who practiced walking around 
her bedroom in the dark to prepare herself for the role. 

While the actors presented their tricks, the props had a few tricks of their own. One scene i n Black Comedy 
called for a vase to be broken. One night the vase was knocked over and broken before it was supposed to 
be and the last night, despite being dropped on the floor and kicked around the stage, it didn't break or even 
crack. The actors had their share of mishaps as well. Harmon said that one night she accidentally fell down 
the stairs, but it worked because her character was fumbling around in the dark. 

"I've always found Shaffer's idea of an evening of tricks an intriguing one," said Peterson. He added that 
he thought White Liars was just as good a play as Black Comedy, but that the audience didn't respond well 
1 to it. "I don't think the audience responded as well to White Liars because it required them to think and TV 
has turned our minds to mush."

Rehearsals for Front Porch began on Dec. 6, when Scott Schwemmer arrived from Los 
Angeles where he worked as a professional actor. Schwemmer was a former student and 
returned to play Hank Erikson in the production. 
The students in the production benefited from working with Schwemmer. "The 
students learned a lot from Scott," said Bob Peterson, drama and speech instructor. 
"I learned more offstage from Scott in conversation than on stage because I didn't 
share many scenes with him, but I did learn a lot," said Jennifer Carra, Wichita 
sophomore. 
"I was very pleased that I got to work with a professional actor and I learned a lot from him. He made 
me realize that I still have a lot more to learn about acting. I would not take back the experience for 
anything," said Rebecca Wilhelm, Wichita sophomore. 

Front Porch was an original script witten and directed by Peterson. The production was related to 
Peterson's life in that the major character was a college professor and writer like himself. Besides 
Schwemmer, two other former students returned to help with the production. Jason Davis worked on the 
lighting and Scott McPhail worked on the set. 

"The play dealt with the character, Hank Erikson, and his relationship with his father and the people 
around him," explained Peterson. The major conflict of the drama was the fact that the father, Marvin 
Erikson, played by Phil Speary, drama instructor, could never see or acknowledge what great things his son 
could accomplish. 

Most of the other characters served as comic relief. Wilhelm played the character Sister David. "I was 
one of the obstacles for Hank finishing his paper for the conference," said Wilhelm. 

Carra played the owner of a gas station, Avis Frank. "She was strictly to entertain," said Carra. 
Skip McCoy was played by Stacey Hinnen, Whitewater sophomore. "I was Hank's student and worked 
on his house. I was comic relief for the crowd," Hinnen said. 

Amy Harmon, El Dorado sophomore, played the part of Sharon, a bubble-headed blonde who worked 
at the local hot dog joint. "This was the smallest and hardest part Eve played, because I felt more intelligent 
than the girl I was portraying," said Harmon. 

Hinnen and Wilhelm were chosen as nominees for the prestigious Irene Ryan award given to outstanding 
theater students. For this honor, the two recipients traveled to Minneapolis, Minn, for a regional 
competition. "Competition was tough," said Hinnen, "and even though I didn't go on to semifinals, I 
learned a lot." . 

Carra went along to be a scene partner in one part of the competition for both Hinnen and Wilhelm. 
"Neither of the two made it to semifinals, but they performed really well and did well under pressure," said 
Carra. 

Peterson was pleased with the production. "I don't know what makes a show good, but it was good," he 
said.

Holy Mclelucca," exclaimed Jack, the island boy, throughout the theater's production 
of Pineapple Jack. Bob Peterson, speech and theater instructor, created this original script 
by mixing an Hawaiian setting with the tale Jack and the Beanstalk. 
After three weeks of preparation, the theater department performed the children's play 
before area grade schools and junior highs. Peterson's goal for the children's play was to 
incorporate a value in the script. Pineapple Jack illustrated the theme of courage. 

The set filled with scented smoke and exploding volcanoes as Jack hurdled obstacles 
and faced challenges from the the lava monster in order to find a happily-ever- after luau 
ending. 

The children were impressed with the volcano and smoke special effects. "It was cool when the set went 
boom. I liked it when there was smoke everywhere because it was scented and smelled good," said Michael 
Wyatt, Andover third grader. 

"Probably my favorite part in doing the show is being able to shake hands and meet the children after the 
productions," said Stacey Hinnen, Potwin sophomore, who played the Hawaiian chief. 

Jack, the favorite of Andover grade schoolers, was played by Brad Ebberts, El Dorado freshman. Jennifer 
Carra, Wichita sophomore, performed a dual role of Mama-niki, mother of Jack, and Max, servant of the 
fire goddess. Rebecca Wilhelm, Wichita sophomore, played three roles, mermaid Baby Jane Halibut, native 
Joan Oasis, and fire goddess Norma Diamond. Jerry Miller, Eureka sophomore, portrayed Chiquita, the 
monkey that made gold bananas. 

The "Bamboo Crew" Orchestra included Mike Crouch, Emporia freshman and James Patterson, Eureka 
freshman. Others were Donald Winsor, Burns freshman and Nathan Whitaker, Whitewater sophomore. 
The production was dedicated to Peterson's favorite actress. "The playwright dedicates this work to a lady 
of the stage and screen who constantly displayed courage. From giving dance recitals behind shuttered 
windows to raising money for the Dutch Resistance during World War II, to being and active ambassador 
for UNICEF in a starving world of Somalia and Bosnia, she was the personification of courage. This 
production is dedicated to the fairest of ladies, Miss Audrey Hepburn," said Peterson.

Y"You just got to do it," said Nathan Whitaker, Whitewater sophomore. "I like to work 
with people," said April Luciano, El Dorado freshman. "I enjoy what I'm doing," said 
Danny Roberts, Kansas City freshman. "I do it to make money," said Preston Sanders, 
Derby sophomore. 
These thoughts struck a chord with the working student. Many students had to juggle 
attending college full time and working full or part time. The reasons varied as much as 
the jobs did, but nevertheless, balancing the two required prioritized time. 
WhitakerworkedatThe Brass Buckle in Wichita and was aretail salesman. He 
worked to save money to attend Kansas University after Butler. He was striving to be an 
athletic trainer or a translator of the Japanese language. 

"You have to know what your limits are and since my classes are done by 2:30 p.m., and I get off 
work at 1 0:30 p.m. I have plenty of time to do homework after work. I'm a people person, so I enjoy working 
retail a lot," said Whitaker. 

Whitaker's social life was not affected by work because he usually got one night of the weekend 
off. 

Luciano was enrolled in 14 hours and worked 20-30 hours a week at Golden Corral. "I work for 
extra spending money and to save up for school," said Luciano. She was hoping to attend Kansas State 
University and major in law after fall semester. 

"Working affects my social life a great deal. Usually I have to close during the weekends, so I don't 
get to go out that much. That puts a damper on things," said Luciano. Her studies have not been affected 
by work yet. 

Roberts balanced work and school by pure instinct. "My studies are not affected at all as long as 
I know when to party and when not to," said Roberts. 

He worked at KSPG Radio and was an on air annoucer. He worked because he needed money. 
Roberts saw the ad for the job opening on a bulletin board in the halls. "I am a theater major so figured what 
the heck. I was surprised I got it," said Roberts. 

Sanders was a shift manager at Godfather's Pizza working 40-45 hours a week and taking 1 6 hours 
of school . He was majoring in business and planned on attending Emporia State University or The Wichita 
State University. "I'dstudy more ifldidn'thavetowork as much, but I enjoy making money," saidSanders. 
"Working cuts my social life. In high school I went out a lot more because I didn't have as much 
homework, nor did I work as many hours. Now I can go out three nights a week and the rest I work. I get 
about five hours of sleep a night," said Sanders. 

Country western singer Dolly Parton said it best in a song titled "9 to 5." "In the same boat with 
a lot of your friends waiting for the day your ship will come in, but the tides are going to turn and they're 
all going to roll your way."

If someone walked down the street and a person o( the opposite sex, a perfect stranger, 
yelled, "Hey babe, you're looking foxy today," would one consider this sexual harassment? 
Although there is a set definition for sexual harassment, many students had a variety 
of opinions about what it was. "It is to influence a person of the opposite sex and to fulfill 
your pleasures," said Rick Bennett, Derby freshman. 
Another student, who wanted his identity protected, said that harassment occurred 
when someone violated someone else's private property. A Douglass sophomore saw it 
as an incident where a person was sexually forward in an inappropriate way. To Nikki 
Johnson, Douglass freshman, it meant using sexual remarks in a place it wasn't called for. 

For Johnson, talking about sexual harassment was something that hit home with her. She worked in the 
medical field along with a lot of other women, and she saw it happen every day. "Women had to slough it 
off and ignore it because the men did it all of the time," said Johnson. 

Most of the time the crude comments came from Johnson's superiors. She recalled one instance when she 
asked her boss for a raise and he replied, "With you, you can get a raise out of me anytime." 

Another student experienced an event that he considered sexual harassment. "I was at this party and I 
had Taken the last beer. This guy came up to me and tried to take it, but I wouldn't let him have it so he 
started yelling obscenities and made sexual gestures at me. I was really offended." 

Some students said that sexual harassment was a way of getting attention or trying to degrade the other 
person. Others suggested that it was a way to feel superior and just see how sexual the other person was. 
"Most people do it around their friends because they think it's cool," said Jill Scheibmeir, Yates Center 
sophomore. 

Students had strong feelings about harassers and what should be done to them. A lot of students thought 
that those in the work place should be reprimanded or fired. "If they get in trouble they should have to do 
some form of community work, unless they rape somebody, then lock the harasser up," said Michael 
Kallenberger, Kechi freshman. Others thought that it depended on the extent of the harassment. 

According to Patti McFadden, dorm manager, harassment in dorms did occur. When she confronted the 
victims, they said that it was all in fun, and they were just playing around. "I can't believe the girls allow 
the guys to call them the names they do," said McFadden. McFadden added that the victims usually won't 
tell anyone because they are afraid and don't want to make waves. 

Sexual harassment did exist on campus and in the work place. According to the campus' sexual 
harassment policy, any student or employee who was of the opinion that the acts or comments of an 
employee of the college constituted unwelcomed harassment should report the situation to any level of 
supervison at the college and/or the Affirmative Action Officer. The complaint would be investigated and 
the student or employee would be notified o( the investigation. 

Any employee found to engage in harassment would be disciplined by reprimand, suspension or 
termination. 

If one felt that being called a "hot chimichanga" was harassment, one option may be to take the advice 
of the People's Court, "Don't take the law into your own hands, take it to court."

it may be reported to either the dean of

J ing-a-ling-a-ling." Butler ripped the change right out of the working students pockets. 
College education is a costly investment, often financed by students working full or part- 
time jobs. For some students, the work study program was ideal. Other students financed 
their education through scholarships and parents' and personal funds saved to stay in the 
dorms. 

Through the work-study program, students earned a specific dollar amount with a base 
rate for each hour of work. The flexiblity of this program allowed students to adust their 
jobs to their class schedules. Students not involved in the work-study program found jobs 
in El Dorado. 

Scholarships paid for tuition and books, but some students had to pay to live in the dorms. Each dorm 
varied in price. The East Dorm cost $2,752 annually, the West Dorm cost $2,376, and the plexes cost 
$2,640. This included the meal plan, which covered 19 meals a week. Combined, the dorms held 259 
students. 

Levi Baucom, Topeka freshman, received a football scholarship that covered books and tuition and a 
Pell Grant that covered most of the cost of the dorm. "I have a work-study job where I run errands for coach 
Rick Remsberg. The money I make off work-study helps with daily expenses. I have to manage my money 
so I don't overspend." 

Some students chose to enlist in the military to pay for school. Eric Morrow, Douglass freshman, went 
into the Marine Corps and was stationed in Virginia for about two years and then transferred into the 
reserves. He moved back home to Douglass and then moved to an apartment near the college. 

Morrow worked 35-40 hours a week at Braum's and took 12 hours of classes. "Work pays for toys, such 
as a jet ski and truck, and rent. Tuition is paid for from grants. I feel a lack of social life between working 
and going to school," said Morrow. 

Using savings bonds, receiving scholarships, and working in the recreation room, Emporia freshman 
Chris Weidert paid for his first year of college. "I have a baseball scholarship that covers books and tuition. 
I work in the rec room and that covers a third of dorm cost. My parents saved up a long time ago when I 
was a kid by using savings bonds. I've got money saved up so if I'm short I can drive home and get money 
out of the bank." 

"Many students, if not on scholarship, wouldn't live in the dorms. They may not have gone to school 
at all. I know of 20 students who are employed on or off campus who are working to pay off dorms," said 
Dan McFadden, dorm manager. 

According to McFadden, the dorm occupants represented a composite of students from all economic 
levels. They came from all different walks of life. "Living in a dorm is a microscopic look at the country. 
There are people here from all different ends of the scale. It's a real melting pot."

Students of all sexes, cultures, and races 
came to Butler in search of one thing: an 
education. That education was offered 
in a wide range of studies taught benefitted the 
wid^ range of students. 

Students were offered traditional courses like English, 
math, and science. Along with the basics cam some non 
traditional classes. 

Environmental Issues, Religion, and Intro to Science 
Fiction were among those classes that broke away from the 

norm. These courses were de- 
signed to meet the needs and in- 
terests of a vast group of students. 

The nursing program was the 
largest program on campus. With 
900 proclaimed nursing majors 
(177 of whom are full time stu- 
dents), the program was an impor-

BACK TO THE BASICS

Diverse curricula offers 
many challenges 



ack to 



Behind the facade of the English, 
math, science, and social science classes 
were many classes and projects which 
went beyond the basics for those students 
who wanted or needed the extra 
challenge. For example, the English 
department offered poetry, short story 
and women in literature classes which 
went way beyond the conjugation of 
verbs. For math whizzes there was 
college algebra, and Calculus I, II and 
III which kept them on their toes. The 
science and social sciences also offered 
challenging courses, including physics 
and human sexuality. In addition, special 
projects were available for student 
participation. 

The English department started fall 
semester with new texts and three new 
instructors. "I think that the new books 
really help students find out about 
problems with their grammar with 
information which they haven't had access 



the Basics 

to before. Students can look up needed 
information on their own as well as going 
to their instructors. In addition, we have 
three new instructors Skyler Lovelace, 
Troy Nordman and Teresa 
Baumgartner," said Tom Hawkins, 
English and literature instructor. 

Hawkins taught Introduction to 
Poetry as well as English composition. 
"In my poetry classes I begin by teaching 
the students the terminology or language 
of poetry so we can talk on the same 
level. We then have pretty deep 
discussions about life, everything from 
starvation to sex. We have an ongoing 
joke in there that there are only two 
themes in poetry which are sex and 
death." 

Computer-assisted composition 
classes continued for the second year. 
The department also sponsored a two 
day cowboy poetry workshop for the 
community which included a western

barbecue and dance. 

The science department curriculum 
also included challenging classes, from 
astronomy to microbiology to organic 
chemistry. Robert Carlson, chemistry 
instructor, was excited about the changes 
in the works for the department. "When 
the new science building is completed, 
the chemistry department will be taking 
over the biology and anatomy labs. One 
more section o( Chemistry I was added 
this year. I have two classes of 30 

students each. My expectation for this 
department is to have ten percent of full 
time students enrolled in Chem I. This 
would also increase enrollment in Chem 
II and Organic. This increase would 
involve the addition of another faculty 
person. None of this will be easy, but it's 
what I think should happen. The 
enrollment in Organic Chemistry is up to 
ten students this year. The first year I 
had only one student. About the 
expansion, here's what I think may be the 
problem. The student population is 
growing and the school facilities are now 
trying to grow with it. The general 
population is not going to drop in the 
future. Does that mean in another 20 
years, we'll have to build all new- 
buildings? Will we have enough room if 
the population keeps growing? Are we 
building for the future? 

"My motto for teaching is 'Try to 
teach for success.' The first thing I try to 
fight is the students' fear that chemistry is 
too hard for them. I generally spend the 
first three weeks trying to change this 
attitude. I also find myself trying to find 
the perfect lab which isn't out there, but I 
keep looking. Everything has been going 
real well. I have a few students who 
resist stoichiometry, but that's life. In the 
lab, students need to learn to make 
decisions. I tell them 'You're the 
scientist," said Carlson. 

The math department also added a 
new instructor, Lori Winningham. Also 
added was an additional College 
Algebra section and many o( the 
textbooks were new. Math instructor 
Melody Southard spoke highly of the 
new books as well as other tools which 
were available to help her in her classes. 
"When I first began teaching I 
questioned whether a graphics calculator 
would be helpful in teaching or if it 
would just help me personally. I found 
that it was helpful, especially since I 
have the graphics calculator program in

the computer which can be hooked up to 
the overhead so the graphs can be 
displayed to the students. As always, 
when you incorporate new technology, 
you have to work out the bugs. The more 1 
use it, the more I get used to it, and the 
better it works." 

A relatively new course was 
Essentials of Algebra, a five-hour 
intermediate algebra class which 
reviewed the fundamentals. "The 
advantage of the five-hour classes over 
the three-hour classes is that students are 
able to work on it every day so they are 
less likely to forget it. It also gives the 
extra time in class which allows coverage 
of some subjects more thoroughly. One of 
the difficulties with Tuesday-Thursday 
classes is that students get tired of math, 
but still need to have covered a week's 
worth of class," said Southard. 

The social science world also had 
some special class offerings. Human 
Growth and Development students 
studied the development of the 
individual from conception through 
maturity. The requirements for Sue 
Sommers' class included interviewing a 
person employed in some area of human 
development and three residents in a 
nursing home. 

"When students are told of this 
requirement, many drop the class out of 
fear," said Sommers. "Many students, of 
all ages, don't want to face the elderly. 1 
point out to them that it will be a major 
learning experience. Even those who do 
have a negative experience can use it to 
look 50 to 60 years down the line. On the 
other side of the coin, many of the 
students have continuing relationships 
with the people they interviewed. 
Interviews with the resource person arc 
also valuable. Students can interview a 
significant person whom they admire and 
ask him or her the questions they have 
always wanted to ask. Students can use 
the interview to find out more 
information about a profession they are 
interested in. They may find that they 
still want to enter into a profession or 
may find that they are no longer 
interested in it. In addition, the person 
interviewed in many cases is honored by 
the fact that someone is interested in 
interviewing him or her."

iverse Opportunities 



With the additions of practice rooms, an 
art gallery, new curriculum, and more faculty, 
the fine arts department started out the year 
with an entirely new look. 

With over 140 fine arts classes offered, 
students had a greater opportunity to explore 
new and diverse areas of art. Students had 
the opportunity to take music, acting and art 
classes, to their desire, with most classes 
ranging from beginning to advanced levels. 

"Butler has a great fine arts and music 
department. And it's easy for students to 
major in what they want, when they can get 
full scholarships in that area," said Donald 
Winsor, Burns freshman 

Art instruction was enhanced by the 
completion of the 1.5 million dollar fine arts 
expansion of the Erman B. White Art 
Gallery. A total of 330 donors contributed to 
the campaign, with the fine arts drive raising 
$111,425 for the equipment and other

furnishings. The gallery opened at the 
beginning of the year. "The gallery really 
adds to the college. We are lucky to have 
such neat artists here," said Jeni Rose, 
Council Grove freshman. 

The addition of teachers was another 
expansion onto the department. John Oehm, 
art instructor, was the newest addition to the 
art department. He graduated from Wichita 
State University, where he taught part time. 
"The staff is really great, and we are lucky to 
have Lynn Havel and John Oehm," said 
Andrew Rucker, Derby freshman. 

It wasn't only the new instructors who 
contributed. Valerie Mack was a music and 
dance instructor, and a favorite among many 
students. "Valerie Mack is a super person, 
who cares about each individual person. 
She's like our mother. She's all that a teacher 
should be," said Tara Robertson. 

The music department hosted several 



activities, including the Renaissance Feaste 
and the 13th Annual Showchoir Festival. 
The music department expanded by adding 
Music History and Literature to the 
curriculum. It also added a new Women's 
Ensemble, and the group Ad Lib. "Butler 
provides an exciting atmoshere. You really 
can't go wrong with the variety of music," 
said Bryan Diffendal, El Dorado sophomore. 

The fine arts department is one o( the 
reasons why many students choose to attend 
Butler. Students love working in such a new 
and better atmosphere. "My sister came to 
Butler and I had seen the Headliners perform 
before and said 'Wow! that's something I'd 

like to do," said Kevin Ripley, Scranton 
sophomore. 

"I wasn't interested in Wichita State and \ 
Emporia costs too much. Plus, Butler gives 
you the opportunity to work with 
professionals," said Andy Young.

After spending 33 years looking under 
ne hood of a car, Ken Goering, auto body 
istructor, knew his stuff. Goering was in 
is twenty-first year as the instructor in auto 
ody, and that was after 12 years of 
xperience in the work force. Goering, 
long with automotive instructor John 
Anderson, earned special recognition when 
ach received this Automotive Service 
Excellence Award given to them after they 
ook several tests in auto mechanics and 
uto body repair. Only -25,000 people in 
tie United States have received this honor, 
joering said. 

Students spent part of their time in 
lassrooms, but they spent more hours 
etting hands-on experience. The hands-on 
xperience came from the rebuilding of 
ars or the auto body repair of students', 
acuity's, or staff members' cars. Even 
'resident Rodney Cox's 1990 Oldsmobilc 
/as rebuilt by the students. Goering said 



Automotive students learn 
from hands-on experience 



rebuilding year 



opx by Brian Boyle; Layout by Dcandra Ulbrich 



that most students took the courses to save 
money on the cost of repairs. 

"Most students bring in their own cars, 
parts, and materials," said Goering. 

The program, which eventually ends with 
the students earning an associates degree in 
auto body repair or auto mechanics, lasts 
nine months. Each semester, which lasts 
eight weeks, becomes technically more 
difficult. 

"From the start, there is continual change, 
and it continues throughout the program," 
said Goering. 

Competition even existed between other 
schools in these areas of auto repair 
techniques. In April, students competed at 
the state contest at Fort Hays State 
University. Last year, this competition 
resulted in fifth place overall. 

In September the Board o( Trustees 
approved a $79,698 project to expand the 
auto body and auto mechanics facility. The 



project was awarded to Evans Building Co., 
Inc. of Wichita. The plans added 3,700 
square feet to the current building. 

This addition was necessary due to the 
increase in enrollment. The auto mechanics 
department recorded a 180 percent jump in 
the student body in one year. 

Howard Clements, division chair for 
business and industrial technology, said 
that the extension gave students more lab 
space, which was greatly needed. 

College students weren't the only 
participants in the auto body program. 
Clements said that the enrollment was also 

increasing among high school students. 
There were 19 high school students 
enrolled in the program.

Failing students find other 
ways to make the grade 



cheating game 



Copy bvJoy Yoiuw: Layout b\ Deandra Ulbrich 



"Psssst. Can I see your paper? The 
teacher is out of the room. What did you 
write on number one? Shhhhh, the 
teacher might hear us." 

These remarks flying around the 
classroom annoyed the serious, honest 
pupils. 

According to a poll of the students, 27 
percent cheated on assignments or tests. 
Fifty-nine percent believed it was 
immoral to cheat. Even though students 
felt guilty when they cheated, they 
continued for a variety of reasons 
ranging from "I need the grade," "It's 
fast," "It's easier," "Others do it too," 
"Lack of time," "A helpful break," and 
"Students let others cheat from them, so 
they ^eel it's a returned favor." 

Many students agreed that when 
people cheat they only hurt themselves. 
"No, it doesn't bother me when people 
cheat because it's their life, and if they 



want to cheat their way through school then 
that's their choice," said Tad Wrench, El 
Dorado sophomore. He said students 
should receive zeros on tests if they were 
caught cheating. 

A Butler student, who wanted his identity 
protected, said he had cheated before when 
he wasn't prepared. "If they cheat and get 
away with it, they're slick. If they get 
caught, they should get a zero. I figure they 
aren't hurting me any." 

Teachers had not experienced much 
cheating. Elmo Nash, math teacher, had 
seen eyes wander and he told the students 
to keep their eyes on their own papers. "I 
say, 'Your neighbor probably doesn't know 
as much as you do. A "D" is better than a 
zero,"' said Nash. Larry Friesen, math 
teacher, made a few different tests so the 
student was unable to look at the neighbor's 
paper. 

Methods of cheating varied from student 



to student. Some used cheat sheets, ask< 
others around them, looked at pape 
around them, sat on a study guide, wrote c 
their hand, and wrote on pencil. In the pc 
taken, a student wrote, "I write the fir 
letter of the things I need to remember on 
small sheet of paper and take the paper 
the the test. After I'm finished with it, I e 
it." 

"Knowledge is not in one, it is in tl 
minds of many and this knowledge shou 
be shared," said Brian Boyle, Lawren< 
sophomore. 

Also, in the poll, another student wrot 
"The honest students agree, if someoi 
wants to cheat from them they would she 
them how to get the answer. Leai 
something that one doesn't understand, ar 
it will stick with you. Knowledge broadeii 
your horizons because if you havj 
knowledge you can do things you nevl 
could do before."

Finals cause stress s to stu 
dents trying to 



ake the grades 



At one o'clock in the morning, Rebecca 
crunched Nacho Cheese Doritos as she began 
to study. She took the last sip of Dr. Pepper 
and placed the can atop the pyramid of cans 
growing on the desk. She had used up all her 
excuses to avoid studying for the 
examination. Bags appeared under her eyes 
as the hours ticked by. 

Many students junked out and burned the 
midnight oil as they prepared for finals. 
Some students were not fazed by the finals, 
but most hit the books and the panic button. 

To meet the needs of the students, Butler 
of Andover offered a free seminar, 
"Overcoming Test Anxiety." This seminar 
taught techniques to cope with test anxiety 
and test- taking techniques. Some tips from 
the meeting included "Two Minute Body 
Stress Scanning." To relax just 1.) Interrupt 
your thoughts and concentrate on deep 
breathing and exhale slowly. 2.) Scan 
yourself for tense or uncomfortable spots. If 



your neck hurts concentrate on loosening 
your muscles. 3.) Warm your hands. 4.) Roll 
your head and shoulders a couple times. 5.) 
Visualize a pleasant thought for a few 
seconds. 6.) Take another deep breath and 
return to what you were doing. 

Some students took any chance possible to 
study. "I study practically every waking 
minute. When I drive to school I review 
notecards. I usually get home at 4 p.m. and 
study until 10 p.m. I ask off work two weeks 
before finals," said Zandra Bautista, Wichita 
freshman. 

Other students were more relaxed about it. 
"I study the same way I do any other test and 
don't get too stressed. I just go in and do my 
best," said Brian Windsor, Augusta 
freshman. 

Most students changed their study habits 
for the biggest test of the semester. "I start 
studying earlier. Usually a couple of my tests 
are hard and I study a long time for those," 



said Daniel Albrecht, Liberal freshman- 
Many students who stressed out had 
different approaches to alleviate the tension. 
Some relieved pressure by physical activity, 
watching television, pigging out, listening to 
music, or consuming alcohol. 

Allen Beneke, Lost Springs sophomore, 
wound down by sleeping. "I say heck with it 
and crash on the couch then take a cold 
shower. I feel rejuvenated afterwards and I'm 
ready to crack open the books again." 

Most students preferred studying alone 
without the interruptions of friends. "I like 
to study alone, otherwise I end up talking the 

whole time. I like to study on the couch or 
in the library," said Brian Gast, Nevada, Mo. 
freshman. 

Whether a person stayed up past 1 a.m., 
many would have said it was still a stressful 
time. Perhaps if the tips from the seminar 
had been applied, students wouldn't have 
walked around with bags under their eyes.

Community -based sites, 

telecourses bring education 

to students 



rograms meet needs 



Copy by Mindx Morland; Layout bx Jamie N idiots 



Community-based locations brought educa- 
on straight to students. 

When Butler first started educational programs 
: different locations they were called Outreach 
rograms. The new frame of mind was to make 
1 of the sites equal to the "main campus" in El 
'orado so the new name for the programs re- 
acted the community site and campus philoso- 
ay. Currently there are close to 30 community 
tes and eight other campuses. 
The programs started with the community. If 
lose in the community saw a need for education 
1 their area, they would contact Jim Edwards, 
irector of Adult and Community Education, 
ho in turn set up a couple of basic courses as trial 
rograms to see if the community took interest. 

Classes usually started out in the local high 
:hool.Iftheprogramwentwell and needed to be 
xpanded, then more classes would be offered in 
ifferent areas of town. Classes were set up in 



grade schools, hospitals, and even resource cen- 
ters. The staff at the El Dorado Correctional 
Facility could even pick up a few credit hours 
through classes that were offered there. 

"We believe we are a key resource for enriching 
the quality of life, promoting economic develop- 
ment and strengthening the future of our com- 
munities," said Edwards. 

The town of Marion expressed an interest in 
the college for a number of reasons. "Marion was 
losing town members. When parents sent their 
kids off to college they lost additional people," 
said President Rodney Cox. 

"It's a nation-wide concept. We try to take our 
education straight to the student. We serve a 
need that has been expressed by the students," 
said Jim Pond, Butler of Andover's assistant 
director. 

Telecourses also accommodated students' 
needs. According to Janice Hilyard, distance

education coordinator, telecourse classes were 
more flexible and less structured than traditional 
classrooms. 

For a three credit hour class, a telecourse stu- 
dent met only five times and an actual seat time 
of only 15 hours compared to the traditional 48 
hours. The student was senthome with about 13- 
14 hours of video and or audio tapes. The tapes 
were filled with actual footage of the course being 
studied. 

"It has the advantage of visually taking you 
beyond the traditional classroom," said Hilyard. 

One of the main reasons for having different 
sites was for the convenience. "We believe in 
providing instructional delivery systems which 
are convenient and non-traditional that adapt to 
working adult's busy schedules. We pledge to 

investigate all options," said Edwards. 

Edwards said that the staff members in the 
Division of Adult and Community Education 
challenged themselves to create a dynamic, goal- 
oriented working environment that fostered 
achievement, responsibility and fairness. 

Having community sites and telecourses avail- 
able to students was another way to expand 
services.

If a person could make it through 
the competitive and demanding nursing 
program, he or she would have a job for life. 
The associate degree nurse was prepared for 
practice in structured health care settings. He 
or she would assume the roles of 
communicator, provider of care, patient 
teacher, manager of patient care in 
institutions such as hospitals, and member 
within the profession of nursing. 

To enter the program, one must 
have taken three prerequisite courses, 
including General Psychology, Anatomy/ 
Physiology, and English Composition I. Then 
the students with the top 40 cumulative 
scores from the three classes were admitted. 
"A student must have a good solid 3.00-4-00 
GPA to get in," said Patricia Bayles, division 
director of nursing. 

When Bayles came to Butler, the 
nursing program was struggling. "1 came to 
Butler in 1980. At the time, the program was 
experiencing difficulty. 1 left a very secure 
job at Wesley Medical Center, to come to a 
very insecure job here. But I have no regrets," 
said Bayles. "As director, I fed constantly 
reinforced that 1 made the right decision 
coming here. I get so much satisfaction in 
helping students get through the two-year 
program and to help them achieve their 
goals. 

The demand to get into the program 
is growing every year. The department has 
sent out nearly 100 applications every month 
to prospective students interested in entering 
the nursing program. Even though the 
department sends out 100 applications per 
month only 250 actually apply. Of these 250, 
only 40 get into the program every semester. 

"You really have to want to get in 
and to make a commitment. This program is 
definitely stressful. A student has to be very 
goal-oriented," said Sallye Long, fourth 
semester coordinator. 

"The hardest part of the program is 
learning to manage my time between 
homework, tests, and quizzes," said Sherry 
Metcalfe, nursing student. 

The hiring rate for graduated Butler 
County nurses was 100 percent with a 
starting pay of nearly $22,000-$24,000. "We 
have a good reputation for passing boards. 
Hospitals want us," said Long. 

The good reputation for passing 
boards was based on performance. As a 
matter a fact, the nursing department 



Competitive program

egree structures jobs 



Copy and layout iiy Marx Kay Blosser 



reported a 95 percent pass rate for nursing 
students taking the state Examination for 
Licensure of a Registered Nurse. This rate 
was five percent higher than the state 
average. 

"The part that got me interested in 
the program is the quick graduation. The 
teachers teach exactly what you need to 
know, and the cost is cheaper than most," 
said Metcalfe. 

While many students entered the 
the associates degree program, others came 
for their LPNs. 

Some students enter the program for 
only one year, receiving a licensed practical 
nursing degree. "We have some students who 
come to get their LPN license in one year so 
that they can get back into the work force 
quicker. Many have families to support. Once 
they get a job as an LPN, many go back to get 
an RN degree," said Don Wimpleburg, 
Nursing Division secretary. 

"We have a unique atmosphere 



being that we are a community college. 
Although we have small classes, we also have 
access to major medical facilities. Our 
students are getting hands-on experience in 
high risk areas, updated hospitals and other 
care facilities," said Bayles. 

The nursing program has established 
a good name for itself. 'The nursing program 
here has been recognized by the National 
League of Nursing for excellence. Kansas is 
one of the few states where all the 
community college programs have been 
accredited by the League," said Bayles.

work with a patient and how to properly care for 
him. One of the major advantages of training at 
Butler is that students have the opportunity to 
work in major medical facilities and get hands-on 
experience in high risk areas. Another advantage 
is that there is a 100 % hiring rate for the nurses 
upon graduation. (Photo by Brian Holderman)

THE STORY IN 




rom vocal music and Delta Psi Omega, which 

tantalized the creative juices, to Phi Theta 

Kappa and Academic Team, which challenged 

students to use their brains, organizations were 

available for every interest and talent. 
The organizations were there, but the interest was not. 

Art Club was nonexistent after being active for six years 

and Black Student Union disappeared only a year after its 

formation because of a lack of interest and time. Despite 

the absence of BSU, its presence was still evident in the 



form of a celebration for the birth- 
day of Martin Luther King, Jr. 

While some organizations main- 
tained traditions passed on 
through the years, such as the 
music department's annual Re- 
naissance Feaste, others went 

beyond the call of duty by getting 
involved with the community. 

Headliners performed for the El 

Dorado Safe House, a shelter for battered women and their 
children, and donated a Christmas tree, toys, clothing and 
food to the shelter for the holidays. 

The absence of familiar groups, the creation of new 
groups and the carrying on of tradition proved there was 
more to the story in organizations than tedious meetings 
and ho- hum events.

ville. 

Before voices could start harmonizing, they had 
to be selected during a three-day audition. To 
audition the students performed All Ye Who Music 
Love, a madrigal, a choreographed routine to 
Beauty and the Beast and a solo of the student's 
choice, ranging from gospel and country to rock 
n' roll. 

"When the students tried out, they just tried 
out and we placed them in one of the groups that 
we thought was best for them," said vocal music 
director Valerie Mack. She added that she was 
pleased with the leadership from returning stu- 
dents. "I feel we have such a strong start this year 
because we have wonderful leadership from our 
returning students." 

According to Augusta sophomore Robert 
Journell, leadership was only one characteristic 
of the department. "The music department has 
unique voices, some with a lot of experience, and 
others with little experience. But that doesn't 
matter because everyone contributes positively 



to the department, despite their experience." 

Leadership and talent weren't the only things 
catching people's eyes. The number of music 
students grew significantly from last year with 
about 50 percent returning. To accompany the 
growing numbers, two new groups were estab- 
lished. Ad Lib, a women's barbershop quartet, 
and Girl's Ensemble added a little spice and a 
change of pace to the department. 

Girl's Ensemble consisted of women who were 
interested in learning performance techniques 
and singing various styles of music. They were 
left without a director second semester, but piano 
instructor Pat Anderson took over until a re- 
placement could be found. The group performed 
for several concerts including the annual Renais- 
sance Feaste. 

Harmonizing and entertaining the audience 
with their unique sound and energetic attitudes, 
Ad Lib built a solid reputation as the first women's 
barbershop quartet established at Butler. Di- 
rected by vocal music director Ron Garber, Ad 
Lib developed its sound from groups like the 
Sweet Adelines and the 1990 Queens o( Har- 
mony from Los Angeles. 

"We want to make the audience feel what we 
feel when we sing," said McPherson freshman 



Melissa Jones, baritone. "It's easier to feel the 
emotions in the songs when I know that the 
audience is there to hear us perform." 

Garber was pleased with the group's perfor- 
mance and hoped that Ad Lib would become a 
tradition. "I think the girls are doing a great job. 
They are all strong musicians and hopefully they 
have started a tradition that will be with Butler a 
very long time." Despite his hopes, the tradition 
didn't last long. The group broke up after only 
one semester. 

"What do you get when you cross an elephant 
and a kangaroo? Pot holes across Australia." As 
the male counterparts to Ad Lib, Smorgaschords, 
directed by Mack, entertained the audience with 
barbershop melodies and funny jokes. They 
performed at concerts and competed at the tal- 
ent show, singing Unchained Melody. They also 
sang the Star Spangled Banner at basketball games 
and competed at a barbershop quartet contest. 

Because of scheduling conflicts, Wichita fresh- 
man Bob Hilliard had to drop from the group 
second semester and Andover freshman Trent 
Forsyth took his place. "I think it's going to be a 
fun semester," said Forsyth. 

Diversity was the key to success for Concert 
Choir. Not only did they sing diverse pieces, but

their direction was diverse too. They were di- 
rected by both Garber and Mack whoeach brought 
a unique touch to the group. The group sang 
difficultbutentertainingpieces, manyinanother 
language. At the dedication concert they took 
the stage singing Tambur by Lajos Bardos and 
ended wi th The Impossible Dream by John Leavitt, 
dedicated to the memory of former Butler stu- 
dent Terri Maness. 

El Dorado sophomore Bryan Diffendal said, 
"With Mr. Garber's selection of vocal repertoire, 
we are getting a real challenge this semester." 

Also directed by Garber, Chamber Choir, too , 
proved to be versatile, singing selections ranging 
from madrigals and Renaissance music to gospel 
and jazz. "Chamber is a very diverse group," said 
Journell. "We sing tough music like madrigals 
and jazz." Although they sang difficult pieces, 
they still managed to entertain the audience and 
make them laugh. At the end of one of their 
madrigal pieces, The Little White Hen, two of the 
members started cackling at each other like hens. 

Chamber's biggest project of the year was the 
annual Renaissance Feaste. Participants were 
taken back to the age of the rebirth for a celebra- 
tion of song, dance, entertainment and feasting. 



Chamber choir was in charge of the feast and sang 
Christmas Carols that were first popular during 
the Renaissance including Deck the Halls, Oh 
Come All Ye Faithful, and Coventry Carol. 
Entertaining audiences with music ranging from 
Broadway musicals to country-western, Headlin- 
es invited the community to "Be Our Guest." 
Having a very busy year, the group, directed by 
Mack, performed for Kansas Music Educators 
Association workshops, organized the 13 th an- 
nual Showchoir Festival for high school students 
and performed for and donated food, clothing 
and toys to the El Dorado Safe House, a shelterfor 
battered women and their children, for Christ- 



mas. 



The group was invited by the KMEA to assist 
in an inservice in Kansas City to demonstrate 
choreography and was also invited to perform in 
Chicago for the second year, but declined. "I 
think it is important for the group to see different 
styles of music and see what groups are doing in 
different parts of the country," said Mack. 

From madrigals to Broadway tunes, the music 
department entertained audiences and proved 
that, just like the Energizer bunny, they keep 
going and going and going.

The band, with its rhythmical and classy 
tunes, brought music to many people's ears. 
The college band played at football and 
basketball games. It also performed at 
concerts which included a variety of musical 
arrangements and a guest appearance by a 
jazz musician. 

The band was made up of two groups, 
Jazz Ensemble (Butler Big Band) and 
College Band. College Band performed at 
concerts and acted as a pep band. "I like 
Jazz Ensemble and Concert Band because 
the music is the most substantive and 
musically challenging," said Roger Lewis, 
instrumental music director. There were 
also two jazz combos, a four-piece and a five- 
piece. 

Each year members are selected by 
audition from 19 community colleges to 
perform at the annual Kansas Association of 
Community Colleges honor band. This year 
the conference was held at Johnson County 
Community College in Overland Park. 
Three students were selected, Kyle Avers, 
trombone, Patty Nevins, French horn, and 
Troy Heitsmon, French horn. 

"I was very pleased they put forth the 



effort to audition and I felt performing with 
the band inspired a higher level o( 
dedication to music," said Lewis. 

Butler Jazz Day, April 22, consisted of 
clinics, a concert, and a guest artist. 
Musicians from area schools worked with 
band members on jazz concepts and 
performance skills. The evening jazz 
concert wrapped up the day with a guest 
appearance by Bob Alcivar, top professional 
musician from the West Coast. 

Bob Alcivar was a composer, arranger 
and jazz pianist. He arranged music for 
many well known names. The Fifth 
Dimension, New Christy Minstrels, and for 
many jazz vocal groups to name a few. He 
also arranged the song "Age of Aquarius", 
and worked with Seals and Crofts and 
Donny and Marie Osmond. He arranged 
many pieces for made for TV movies and 
was the head musical arranger for the TV 
show Quincy. 

"Bob Alcivar is a consummate musician. 
He is comfortable working with virtually 
any style of music. He is a marvelous pianist 
and a wonderful human being. He's a dear 
friend," said Lewis. 



In late April, a week after Jazz Day, the 
band attended the Wichita Jazz Festival. 

Lewis was throwing around the idea of 
taking a road trip for a day of performance ,

Editor Fumbles and Super Staff Makes 



Quick 
Recovery 



copy by Debbie Blasi

When a player leaves a team at the 
end of the season no real harm is done. 
But this year the Grizzly team lost its 
quarterback at half-time. Brad Hill, 
editor, quit just before the start of second 
semester and took his playbook with him. 

With the Grizzly staff down 6-0 in the 
third quarter, Coach Jane Watkins and 
veteran assistant Diane Wahto had to 
make a quick decision if the team was 
going to win. 

"Jane and Diane made the transition a 
lot easier. They supported our ideas and 
let us know that they had faith in us," 
said new co-editor Jamie Nichols, a 
Benton sophomore. Nichols was pulled 
from the depths of the team as one of the 
two new quarterbacks were chosen for the 
job. Mary Kay Blosser, Council Grove 
freshman, was the other lucky back-up 
who got the call. 

Taken by surprise they returned to the 
basics of the game. They had a Pro-Bowl 
line-up. The offensive line of

Ulbrich, Whitewater freshman, Jennie 
Whitney, Coldwater sophomore, Joy 
Young, Whitewater sophomore, and free- 
agent Nina Clingan, Topeka freshman, 
protected their quarterbacks like the 
Hogs. 

The all- important wide receivers were 
photographers Nicole Fry, Wichita 
sophomore, Brian Holderman, Augusta 
sophomore, and a rookie sophomore from 
Andover, Marianne Mcintosh. They 
handled the ball like Jerry Rice. At 
center was the Joe Montana of Macintosh, 
Vic Riggin, Topeka sophomore. And 
finishing out the line-up was 
kicker/punter Debbie Blasi, Augusta 
sophomore, who made it look as easy as 
Nick Lowery. 

The yearbook team is known for taking 
a hit and still making that touchdown and 
that was exactly what happened this year. 

"We were lucky to have a great and 
talented staff. Although we had some 
problems during the year it never hurt 



our ability to work together and get the 
job done," Blosser said. 

One good example of teamwork to get 
the job done was the effort of the staff to 
complete 50 pages for the third 
deadline. Co-editors Blosser and 
Nichols rallied everyone around in a 
frenzy of writing copy, printing pictures, 
creating cutlines, setting headlines, and 
proofreading. The week before deadline 
day, pages were flying from hand to 
hand as each person participated in the 
step-by-step process of creating, word 
processing and pasting up pages. By the 
time the yearbook representative came 
from the plant to do a final check before 
taking the pages for printing, everyone 
but the editors and advisers took a well- 
deserved day off, and Room 107 had 
become peaceful once again. 

"We couldn't have hit the ground 
running had we not had such two capable 
young women to take over as editors. 
They better be back next year," said 
Watkins.

Headlines, deadlines, outlines. Once again the 
xxntem did a swash-buckling job of being contro- 
ersial . Two of the most radical stories were from 
pecial contributor Mary Kay Blosser, Council 
jrove sophomore, with her story on the division 
if money in regards to men verses women's sports, 
nd editor Cristina Janney, El Dorado 
ophomore's, story on the status of the Grizzh 
ootball team. 



Even with the trouble brewing newspaper ad- 
viser Dave Kratzer said the newspaper "hasn't 
changedat all, "since he acquired his job from Bill 
Bidwell five years ago. 

The newspaper had twelve to fifteen people on 
staff. The number changed at semester and 
students dropped the class due to the intense 
pressure of the deadlines and the amount of time 
needed to write copy and take photos. 



"There were lots of staff changes at semester. 
People just weren't pulling their weight," said 
Kevin Sullivan, Baltimore, Md. sophomore, who 
was on staff first and second semester. 

The Lantern was written and edited by the 
students, many of whom were on scholarship. 
"The students have done good work this year,"said 
Kratzer, "but one of the most challenging parts of 
my job is making the students do the work."

Student Nurses Association Nurtures 



Career 
Aspirations 



Nurturer, caretaker, protector, and 
therapist summed up the duties of a nurse. 
Many nurses chose to become members of 
Butler Student Nurses Association to educate 
themselves in their major. The main goal of 
the club was to support the students and to 
inform them of the professional 
responsibilities of a nurse. 

Because membership had been low in the 
past, efforts were made to regenerate the 
interest. "We arc working to get more 
members and to get it going again," said 
Cordelia Schaffer, club sponsor. 

Club members held fundraisers, 
participated in state and national 
conventions, and undertook a blood drive. 
One project was a food drive during 
Christmas season. A needy student who 
lived in the El Dorado area and the student's

family received all the donated food. 

The president of the club was Stacy 
LcMay, Augusta sophomore, and the 
treasurer was Shirley Hess, El Dorado 
sophomore. They organized a T-shirt 
fundraiser as well as other fundraisers. 

"Almost all first semester students came to 
a social the Thursday before school started, so 
the students could ask questions and support 
the first semester students. We plan to do 
that every semester," said Schaffer. 

According to Tim Love, BSNA member, 
being a member was almost a must. "BSNA 
is one of those professional organizations and 
if you arc planning on a career in the 
program you need to get involved. You need 
to take nursing magazines and get 
professional information in the field. You get 
a magazine publicaton that is produced just 






for BSNA." 

Club membership gave members 
experience for their future careers. 
According to Schaffer being a member 
included, "Fundraising, service, and fun."

"Dedication has grown a lot from first

planning Spelvins at the end of the year. 
Spclvins is an awards ceremony that gives

With a cast of about a dozen, members 
kept active by sponsoring a Jeopardy

Butler graduations. 

Delta Psi Omega was the sister chapter to 
Alpha Psi Omega, the university chapter.

Livestock Judging Team Develops 



Agricultural 
Acumen 



copy by Mindy Morland

Butler County had a farm, e-i-e-i-o, and 
on this farm they had some livestock, e-i-e-i- 
o, with a moo-moo here, and an oink-oink 
there, here a moo, there and oink, 
everywhere a moo- moo. 

Farming was more than a children's game 
for many agricultural majors. They took it 
very seriously when it came to livestock 
judging. In judging competition, students 
ranked four animals, then an official 
committee also ranked the same four animals. 
The officials compared their scores with 
those of the students, and after die scores had 
been compared, students whose scores most 
closely matched the officials were awarded 
rankings. The scores closest to the judges 
received the best ranks. 

The team of five members, sponsored by 
Blake Flanders, had a successful start by 
taking 2nd at the National Barrow Show, 
2nd at Fort Hays State Livestock Contest, 
and placing 2nd at Manhattan's Livestock 
Show. 

Joe Leibrandt, St. Francis freshman, 



placed 7th at the National Barrow Show and 
6th at Fort Hays State. 

"I've gained a lot of good public speaking 
skills. When I have to get in front of judges 
and tell them why I judged the animal the 
way I did, it really makes me brush up on 
those skills," said Leibrandt. 

The students were also required to give 
reasons, as they were called, as to why they 
judged the animals the way they did. 

The team planned on going to Fort Worth 
Livestock Show, Kansas Beef Expo, and the 
Houston Livestock Show. 

Leibrandt felt that as a team they weren't 
very deep, numberwise, but individually they 
had some strong and experienced people.

Student Senate Attempts to Pump Up 



Lackluster 
Spirit 



copy by Joy Young 
layout by Jennie Whitney 



Students joined together in an energetic 
effort to make the Student Senate's job more 
efficient and effective. Senate members 
concentrated on providing activities for the 
students and an improvement was made from 
years past. 

According to the president of Student 
Senate, Julie Lepak, Derby sophomore, the 
Senate has made a lot of progress. "Students 
are getting more involved. Our purpose is to 
provide something entertaining and just 
plain fun." 

The other officers were Vice-President 
Tim Love, Wichita freshman, Treasurer 
Nathan Whitaker, Whitewater sophomore, 
Secretary Tricia Campbell, El Dorado 
freshman, and the Kansas Association of 
Community Colleges representative was 
Dusty Fulk, El Dorado sophomore. Different 
representatives from various activities also 
attended the meetings to discuss plans for the 
students. 

The dances haven't been a success, 
according to Lepek, but many other activities 
were. The activities included Parent's Day, 
pep assemblies, homecoming activities, and 
talent contests. The Senate organized one 
event each month. 



The students who attended the talent 
contest expressed various opinions on the 
outcome. "It was a lot of fun to do, but it was 
difficult to perform my solo, 'That's When 
the Angel's Rejoice,' because the audience 
was so loud. It was disappointing that 
rapping male strippers won while second 
place got a standing ovation in the middle of 
the song. 

"I did it because I knew it would be a 
tough audience, but I enjoy the experience 
and challenge. I believe you can learn 
something in every performance. I didn't 
expect to win, but it was disappointing 
because music is work and there is more to 
singing than taking off your clothes," said 
Robert Journcll, Augusta sophomore. 

The homecoming ceremony brought 
entertainment to and energy from the crowd. 
"We got to cheer for our favorite people and 
it was fun watching who got it. It was funny 
because Nikki Swift, Florence sophomore, 
was crowned queen, but she wasn't there to 
accept her crown, so Patty McFaddcn stood 
in for her. She was crowned and robed," said 
Jana Nichols, Benton sophomore. 

Another event was to rent a movie 
theater. The students got in free as a chance 



to get to know fellow students. Another 
activity was to have a dinner in the cafeteria 
catered by the faculty. 

"We have megaphones and footballs to 
throw out to the students to get them 
involved and to give back to them. We are 
doing our best," said Lepak.

DECA Teaches Maketing and Distribution to 



Business 
Majors 



Delta Epsilon Chi Association's main 
purpose was to enhance the value of 
education in marketing, merchandising and 
management. It enabled students to prepare 
themselves for careers in management, sales, 
advertising, finance, retail, wholesale, 
insurance, real estate, fashion merchandising 
and many other marketing-oriented 
occupations. 

Kevin Belt, DECA Sponsor, said there 
were many advantages of being a member of 
DECA. It allowed members to relate with 
people who have common job and career 
interests. 

They also received stature in a job 
training station from employers who 
recognized, supported, and respected DECA 
as an organization of student leaders. 

Another benefit for members with 
outstanding qualities in marketing, 
merchandising and management skills was to 
receive awards and recognition. 

Some of the clubs objectives w~re to use

high ethical standards in business and to 
contribute through business activites to the 
civic, social, and moral welfare of society, 
said Belt. 

Belt was looking forward to the state 
contest which was held Feb. 28 and March 1. 
"We are really excited about the contest and 
are expecting a lot of awards. We hope to go 
to nationals in Orlando, Fla. on April 24-27 
to represent Kansas." 

The fifteen club members sponsored a 
high school mini-DECA state contest on 
Feb. 12. This activity allowed area schools 
with a DECA chapter to get practice in 
competetion. The attendance was estimated 
to be around 150-200 students. 

The DECA Creed demonstrated what 
kind of individuals it took to be a member. 
It started out by saying," I believe in the 
future which I am planning for myself in the 
field of marketing and distribution, and in 
the opportunities which my vocation offers. ..I 
believe that by doing my best to live 



according to these high principles, I will be of 
greater service both to myself and to 
mankind."

To support these goals FBLA and PBL 
provide its membership with customized 
conferences, awards, publications, 
scholarship, and partnership according to 
Donna Malik, sponsor of FBLA-PBL. 

Sponsors benefit by getting professional 
development through meetings with fellow 
educators. They also get networking and 
interaction with the local business 
community.

"It's a good place to network with other 
business students and leaders. Students can 
make a lot of lasting friendships and business 
aquaintances that will help them throughout 
life," said Malik. 

Students get recognition and rewards for 
excellence in business and career related 
areas through FBLA-PBL's National Awards 
Program. 

There were three returning members to the 
club which attended their first meeting Feb. 3 
at 7:30 in the morning. 

They were all looking forward to attending 
state competition in Salina on April 1 and 2 

Nationals were to be held in Washington 
D.C., "a great learning environment", from 



July 10 through 15. 

" I hope to place several people in state. 
Then if they place first or second they will be 
eligible to go onto nationals," said Malik.

With a year of experience behind them, 
Phi Theta Kappa began its second year with 
both feet on the ground. The approximately 
60 members were selected by a computer 
search which identified the students with the 
highest grade point average. With an active 
membership of eight to 10, this brainy, bright 
bunch kept the activities going 

In order to qualify for the club a full-time 
freshman had to maintain a 3.7 GPA and 
continued with a 3.5 GPA as a sophomore. 
This honor society for two year students 
emphasized leadership, fellowship, service, 
and scholarship. 

"I like being in Phi Theta Kappa because 
it is a good academic organization and it 
looks good on job and scholarship 
applications. Since we are such a new group 
we are still trying to get organized," said Tara 
Robertson, Norwich sophomore. 

Members kept active by sponsoring 



fundraisers, attending state conventions, and 
planning for a Dallas. On one state gathering 
the group traveled to Fort Lamed and toured 
the Santa Fe Trail Museum. Awards were 
given to each chapter based on its 
accomplishments; if the club meets 
frequently, it will receive an award. 

Dynamics of discovery was the group's

sophomore, said the theme was taken from 
Columbus. "It's nice to work with the people 
who are in the club. Most of our activities 
are in the spring. We'll have two induction 
activities that are involved with fundraisers 
and community service." 

The other officers were Vice President 
Stacy Taylor, Wichita sophomore; Recording 
Secretary Sebrena Howard, Augusta 
sophomore, Public Relations Secretary Cindy 
Van Fossen, El Dorado freshman; and 
Treasurer Suzanne Hamilton-Miec, Wichita 



sophomore. 

The sponsor, Susan Pfeifer, said it has 
been a fun year. "We did a fundraiser by 
flipping hamburgers at a Conoco picnic. The 
money we made went to funding the 
convention trips."

This is Alex Trebek. Thank you for 
returning to the final round of Jeopardy. 
The answer again is- He won a smashing 
victory over the Whig presidential 
nominee, General Winfield Scott. 

Buzz. 

Who is Franklin Pierce? 

Jeopardy techniques were familiar to the 
members of the Academic Excellence 
Challenge Team. They buzzed their 
buzzers, studied their information sheets, 
and learned to be quick with answers. 
The team competed with other 
community colleges in the state. Money 
would be awarded to a team if they were 
placed high enough in the state. 

"We recently went to a Rose State 
College tournament in Midwest City, 



Okla., and it was a great learning 
experience. With only two returning 
members the team is growing together. 
The team attended three meets during 
spring semester," said Teresa 

Baumgartner, sponsor. 

The members practiced once a week the 
first semester and twice a week the second 
semester. To be a member, each student 
had to maintain a 2.0 grade point average. 

Some students joined the team because 
they had experience from high school. 
"My friend, Charity Bloom, and 1 were 
both on our high school scholar's bowl 
team, so when we saw the flyers up around 
campus we decided to see what it was 
like. We thought it was going to be a lot 
of fun, so we joined," said Melissa Spires, 



Douglass freshman. 

"I liked it a lot when 1 was in scholar's 
bowl my junior and senior year in high 
school," said Charity Bloom, Douglass 
freshman. 

The team spent hours of preparation 
time reading the study sheets. It didn't 
matter if they won or not, the worst that 
could happen was that they would 
educate themselves. Now they were ready 
to answer any question. AnswenThey 
were the quickest group of men and 
women to answer a question. 
Question:Who were the Academic 
Excellence Challenge Team members?

Dance Team Adds Flair and Excitement to 



Halftime 
Performances

The Honcybcar dance team started off the 
year with a busy schedule. Tryouts were held 
at the end of April 1992. Twenty women 
tried out but only fourteen members and a 
manager were selected. First semester 
captains chosen for the Honeybears were 
Cheyla Cabrales, Krishna Morris and Missy 
McLaren. Second semester captains were 
Cabrales and Morris. 

The team attended meetings and started 
practice in June. Practice was held every 
morning, rain or shine, until August. The 
team then attended a National Cheerleaders 
Association camp at The University of 
Nebraska in Lincoln. The dancers were 
offered a bid to go to the nationals, the first 
time they had been offered this opportunity. 



However, because oi conflicting schedules, 
the team was unable to attend. 

Kick-a-Thon fundraisers were held at the 
Augusta Armory and the El Dorado Armory. 
Each member had to get donations and 
pledges to total at least $150. All members 
kicked 800 kicks in order to receive the 
pledges. The money went for uniforms and 
shoes. 

Before going to classes, the team members 
started bright and early with a dance practice 
at 6:30 every morning. "The practices aren't 
the same this early in the morning. We just 
aren't awake. It's hard adjusting to the new 
change," said Nina Clingan, Topeka 
freshman. 

"I hope the girls start this semester off well. 



There are a lot of home games in February. 
That means that there are going to be a lot of 
new routines to practice. I think they'll do 
great," said Risa Flanders, temporary sponsor. 
The team will add many more routines to 
their already long list of 12 memorized 
dances, Flanders said.

"Rah-Rah Shiskboomba." Most civilians 
think that this is all that is required of a 
cheerleader. Little do they know that it 
takes a lot of hard work and practice. 

"Traveling on all of the long trips is 
probably the hardest part of being a 
cheerleader, along with the 6:30 in the 
morning practices," said squad member Jill 
Scheibmeir, Yates Center sophomore. 

She added that it was also hard on the 
squad when there was no crowd 
participation. "We try different things and try 
really hard to get them to participate. What's 
really hard is when we're cheering against 
Hutchinson because they have excellent 



crowds, and it makes us look bad," said 
Scheibmeir. 

Risa Flanders was the new temporary 
sponsor for the cheerleaders. "She'll be good 
to work with because she understands what 
we're doing. She's worked with dance teams 
and cheerleaders before. Lavina, our former 
sponsor, was also good. She made it all work," 
said Jenifer Sarzynski, Overland Park 
freshman. 

The team went to Springfield, Mo., to a 
National Chccrleaders's Association camp. 
They received a spirit stick, and a third place 
ribbon for the all-girls squad. Captains of the 
squad were Twila Hadlcy and Shelly Benton. 



To raise money for shoes, uniforms, pom- 
pons, and clothes, the squad of nine members 
held a car wash at Wal-Mart and earned 
$900. 

Overall the women were happy with the 
squad. "We have a good squad. We work 
good together because we're all friends," said 
Sarzynski.

Disappointed was the word many people used 
to describe 1992 Grizzly football season. 

Although the Grizzlies were predicted to be # 
1 by the Jayhawk conference coaches, the team 
ended the season with a tally of four wins and six 
losses. 

The disappointment expressed by everyone 
was tempered, by thoughts of next year.

season was more than half over," said 
Hollands. 

Even though the season was a dis- 
appointment to many of the players, 
they were still supportive of the 
school, the football program, and the 
coaches. "We have good coaches who

are really knowledgeable. They were 
very disappointed with the season, 
too. Next year will be totally differ- 
ent because the coaches won't let the 
problems which affected us this year 
happen again," said Adams. 

Hollands was also positive about 
the coaching staff. He brought up the 
resignation of Dale Remsberg as as- 
sistant football coach. "I think we 
have a good coaching staff, but I 
think they made a mistake letting 
Coach Remsberg go. He helped the 
players out a lot. 

"Butler has a good program. I be- 
lieve in a lot of the things they be- 
lieve in and if I had it to do over 
again, I'd definitely come back to 
Butler," said Hollands. 

Turner, who came from Parsons, 
also appreciated what Butler had to 
offer him. "I think Butler is a great 
academic school. I like the small 
classes and the teachers. It was fun 
living away from home, and I think 
Butler is a good place to go to school 
and play football," he said.

In the past three years, Dave Slayton has seen 
he Butler volleyball program go from the base- 
nent of the conference to the upper division, 
ie used recruitment to build a competitive 
volleyball team. "This is the first year that 
veryone on the court are people I recruited out 
)f high school," said Slayton, who was previ- 
ously a coach at Bishop Canoll High School in 
Wichita. 

Near the end of the season, the team was 
truggling and playing inconsistently. They 
vent to Barton County for matches against 
)oth Barton and Garden City, the top two teams 
n the conference. 

There, the Grizzlies shocked Garden City 
md nearly defeated Barton County. This was 



the highlight of the season, particularly for the 
sophomores who hadn't touched either team in 
two years at Buder. 

"We played the best we played all season 
against Garden," said Lebo sophomore 
Stephanie McCormick. 

The team ended the season 25-18 and made 
their first appearance in the regional tourna- 
ment since 1985. Their third place finish in the 
Western Division allowed them to play in the 
post-season tournament. Though they went 0- 
3 in the region, the team had a lot to be proud 
about. It was their first winning season in four 
years. 

"There was just an awful amount of pride 
involved," said Slayton. He also praised the 
play of few key sophomores for the roles they 
each played. "They're proud of what they ac- 
complished and I'm proud of them too. I can't 




say enough about the sophomores. Each one 
played an important role. None of them was 
what you would call a leader, but they worked 
together well and each player was ready to step 
up and play when called upon," said Slayton. A 
few players he mentioned who were really going 
to be missed were sophomore setters Jennifer 
Pearsall, Attica, and Stephanie Burkholder, 
Marion. Burkholder, along with Loveland, Colo, 
sophomore, Kami Lee, and Augusta freshman 
Paula Rodriguez all made the all-conference 
team. 

Lee was a sophomore transfer from Colby 
Community College, who actually played vol- 
leyball for the love of the game. She attended 
Butler on a softball scholarship. 

"I figured that there aren't a lot of people who 
can play two sports, and I had the opportunity, 
and I'm glad I decided to play," said Lee.

"This has been the best team at Butler," 
said women's basketball coach Darin 
Spence. With the end of the season nearing, 
the women's basketball team was tied for 
first in the conference and was ranked 
second nationally in team defense. Also 
they had the best record in the history of the 
program. 

The team had five sophomores, who 
provided much of the leadership that led 
them to their many victories. With several 
freshman players, however, the rookies 
created the backbone of the team with at 
least four freshmen starting each game. 

The coach and the team members agreed 
that the game against Barton County was 
the best of the regular season. "We played 
Barton and we were down by 11, then we 
came back and won the game by 10," said 
Spence. 

"We needed to win that game against 
Barton to stay in the conference race for first 
place," said freshman point guard Delores 



Johnson. 

The team hoped to go to the national 
tournament and possibly win the 
championship title. "I want to help my team 
as much as I can and hopefully go to the 
national tournament. 

During practices, Spence taught drill 
work, game situations, and defensive 
strategies. Also the team worked on free 
throws, ran, and often would scrimmage 
each other. "When we get to the game I 
want the players to have already seen 
everything before. The games are easier 
than the practices," said Spence. 

The team practiced six days a week, two 
hours each day. "Every now and then we 
take a day off, usually Thursdays and 
Sundays, the days after the games," said 
Spence. 

Through the entire season, the team 
worked especially hard toward their ultimate 
goal of winning the national tournament. 
"We need to begin focusing on each game 
and getting each player to raise her level of 
play," said Spence. 

Johnson, like many of the other players, 




has high expectations for both herself, and 
the team. "I will continue to work hard and 
practice, play together as a team, and give it 
my all in the game." 

Much of the success of the team is owed 
to coach Spence and the closeness of the 
team members. "The coach is great, he's a 
very understanding coach. He will do 
anything for his players," said Johnson. 

"I think this has been the most enjoyable 
team to work with. Their unique 
personalities fit together well, on and off the 
court. Their good chemistry has been one of 
our strenths this year," said Spence. 

"We all get along, we do fight but we 
always resolve our differences," explained 
Johnson. 

The growth of the team was probably 
the most impressive aspect of the club. "For 
me, the most interesting thing has been 
watching the growth of the team and seeing 
the support grow also. There wasn't much 
interest before, but now I see players being 
recruited by top universities," said Spence.

COMMITTED TO 



COPY BY JENNIE WHITNEY 
LAYOUT BY DEANDBA ULBRICH 

At the end of a winning season, it was 
obvious the basketball team had committed 
themselves to success. But to the team, this 
commitment had more meaning than this. 
"Commitment is not just a word. It is when 
you can look across at another player and 
know he can get the job done," explained 
Romeoville, 111., sophomore Wilson 
Winters. 

With an outstanding season of 26-4, it 
was easy to see that the team's commitment 
paid off. "This is the best regular season we 
have had since I've been here. We are 
proud of our players getting this far and 
doing this well," said head coach Randy 
Smithson. 

To accomplish a record such as theirs 
took determination and talent, and talent 
was a trait the team had an abundance of. 
"We have a lot of good, talented young 
people. We are trying to give them more of 
a purpose out there. When you have more 
athleticism like we do this year, you 
sometimes give up skills and knowledge on 
the floor.

"We are trying to turn athletes into 
basketball players and that's kind of like 
turning an athlete into a student. These are 
the changes they have to make in a junior 
college, and that's our final step," said 
Smithson. 

From the results of the scoreboard, it was 
plain to see that this transition took place 
very well. "We have five kids in double 
figures. Last year we had a kid like 
Cleveland Jackson who scored a bunch of 
points and everyone else kind of filled in. 
This year we have a number of kids who can 
score, so we have more depth and more 
balance in our scoring," said Smithson. 

Becoming a basketball player meant 
being driven not only by the coach but by 
one's self as well. "Our toughest opponent is 
ourselves, because if we don't do things 
right, we lose. Doing the right things makes 
us win," said Ervin Games, Wichita 
sophomore. 

The power displayed on the floor was in 
equal importance to the ability shown in the 
classroom. "We try to put a lot of emphasis 
on graduating. They are student-athletes, 
and being a student comes first. We want 



them to graduate and be academically 
sound. If they can't move on from here and 
be academically sound, they can't ever put 
on their shorts. 

"The kids are starting to realize more and 
more how important academics apply to 

their success even on the floor," said 
Smithson. 

Games related to this academic 
discipline. "Even if we came back from a 
road trip at three o'clock in the morning, 
the coach expected us to be in class the next 
morning. That is good because it shows he 
cares." 

Smithson not only cared, he was very 
proud of his players. "We have good people 
with good chemistry. Whenever you have 
good people, you can be pretty successful 
and that is what we are to this point." 

With the gym nick-named"The Power 
Plant," the Grizzly men lived up to their 
reputation of being "powerful." "I think our 
season was pretty good. We started playing 
with more enthusiasm and intensity. Most 
of all, we started playing together," said 
Winters.

First year head coach Fred Torneden was de- 
lighted to see the success his team carried from 
beginning to end of the season. Torneden kept 
his eye out for the job at Butler, and for good 
reason. 

"I was at Coffeyville and an assistant at the 
University of Texas. This is a job I've watched for 
years hoping for an opening," said Torneden. 

The success began at the Wichita State Uni- 
versity "Gold Classic" with both the men and 
women claiming first place. Jurmain Mitchell, 
Jamaica freshman, finished ahead of all of the 
Kansas State University runners and also fin- 
ished in the front of the pack of junior college 
runners. It sounds surprising considering he's a 
freshman, but this isn't so surprising because the 
top five runners for the men are all freshman.

The women consist entirely of freshmen. 

The WSU meet was the first of six first-place 
finishes for the men and five for the women. 
These first meets, before Regionals, were used for 
competition and even training. In cross country 
and in track, athletes tried to "peak" at the big 
meet. Their entire season was geared towards 
Regionals and hopefully Nationals. The training 
and preparation paid off when it came time to 
compete at the Region VI meet in Garden City. 
Butler battled with Barton County like "two 
heavyweights going at it toe-to-toe for all 15 
rounds." Torneden's analysis of the meet was 
correct as the two schools "ran away" from the 
rest of the competition. Barton's fourth runner 
finished 15 places higher than expected provid- 
ing the winning margin for Barton. The results, 
however, weren't surprising. Barton's men were 
ranked sixth in the nation, Butler's, seventh. 
The women ranked eighth in the nation after 



their performance at the regional meet. In this 
meet the women fell to eventual national cham- 
pions, Barton County ; however, the harriers 
defeated Johnson County who ranked seventh at 
the time. Coach Torneden felt that this meet 
showed that this year's squad knew when to turn 
it up a notch. 

"We really responded well to the pressure and 
ran our best races when it counted the most," said 
Torneden. 

In order to be on the all-Region team, runners 
have to finish in the top 15. The men ended up

With approximately fifty applications 
and only seven openings, Todd Carter, head 
athletic trainer, was able to be selective with 
his new student athletic trainers. The 
competing applicants fought for the position, 
which carried with it responsibility for 
keeping athletes strong and healthy. Carter 
attributes the growth to the rising need to 
restore the athletes^health. 

The ten trainers divided themselves 
among the sports. Depending upon the sport, 
one or two trainers would be in charge. 
Everyone was involved in helping with

football. The duties involved were taping 
what needed to be taped and evaluating what 
was wrong then fixing it. They were in 
charge of the overall well-being of the 
student athletes. 

A prospective student trainer should 
realize the numerous hours involved with 
mending the athletes injuries. " A trainer's 
season never ends. By the first week of 
school the trainers already earn their 
scholarship," said Carter. 

Many of the trainers chose to student 
train during their college years to prepare 
them for their majors. Most of the student 
trainers planned to pursue a career in sports 
medicine or physical therapy. That was why 
Cory Elswick, Arkansas City sophomore, 
chose to be a trainer. "I enjoy athletics and 
helping the athletes. I was an athletic trainer 
in high school for two years and my father 
was a trainer." 

Not everyone could succeed in athletics, 
but still wished to be involved, which was 
why Jason Langford, Bonner Springs 
sophomore, decided to be a student trainer. 



"I still wanted to be around sports, but I 
didn't think I was good enough to play," said 
Langford. 

The highlight of caring for the athletes 
was watching them recover from the injury. 
"The biggest positive of being a trainer is the 
day-to-day contact with the kids. 
Unfortunately, injuries arc a part of the 
sports, but seeing them get hurt, then 
watching them heal, and then compete again 
is a great feeling. Trainers are the unsung 
heroes," said Carter. 

According to Carter, the athletic 
program was spectacular. It was one of the 
most outstanding programs in ihis area. 
"People are finding out what an athletic 
trainer is. We just have a top-notch program 
here."

The competitive edge is very important in 
sports, not only in the game, but also in 
practice. In many sports, the players have to 
compete with each other as well as their 
opponents. The harder a team member works 
in practice, the more playing time he or she 
gets on the field or court. 

In sports, practice is the divider between 
who plays and who sits the bench.

Kelley, De lores Johnson, Larissa Sargent, and Asst. 
Coach Renee Bellerive. Photo by Brian Holderman

In almost every sport, practice takes up 
most o( the time. "We practice every day and 
some Saturdays too," said cross country 
runner Jennifer Gonzales, Topeka freshman. 

The competition with other players is 
often difficult. Because most of the best 
athletes are from out-of-state, the in-state 
athletes have a big challenge to work with. 
"It is very competitive. It's hard going up 
against some of the best guys in the country," 
said Levi Baucom, Topeka freshman. 

The transition from high school to a 
college level team also adds stress to the 
competition. In high school, Baucom was one 
of the top linebackers in the state, but here 
he only gets to play in the last few minutes of 
the game. "There's a lot more competition 
than in high school. Sometimes you're 
competing against five or six guys," said 
Baucom. 

Of course, in sports, competition is a key 
factor to doing well. "Competition makes 
you want to work harder to get a spot on the 
team," said freshman tennis player Zack 



Odell, Kiowa. 

Athletes have different views about 
getting adequate playing time. "I think 
everybody should be allowed to run, not just 
the top seven," said Gonzales. 

Baucom says," I think I deserve more 
playing time. All I do is give 100 per cent, 
and next year I hope to get much more 
playing time." 

On the other hand, Odell said, "I think I 
get the playing time that I deserve." 

Even through the tough competition, 
players still have aspirations for themselves 
and their teammates. Baucom expects several 
things from playing football, "I want to help 
Butler win a national championship and 
after Butler, 1 want to get a scholarship to a 
Divsion I school or to Hampton University 
in Virginia." 

The most important thing to these 
athletes is to compete well. There are many 
way to be the best, but Baucom said it best 
when he said, "Eat right, say your prayers, 
and take your vitamins."

SUPERSTITIONS OF ATHLETES

Don't step on a crack or you'll break your 
mother's back. Break a mirror and you'll have 
seven years of bad luck. If a black cat 
;rosses your path you'd best beware. 
Webster's Dictionary defines su- 
perstitions as "an excessive fear of 
the gods, an attitude that is inconsis- 
tent with the known laws of science. 
\ belief in charms, omens, and the 
iupernatural." Superstitions may also 
)e irrational. 

Why does something become a 
uperstition? Some athletes started 
>ecause it relaxed them. Others had 
luperstitions because it helped them 
eel better about themselves and to 
itrive harder. They felt more confi- 
lent and supported. Rick Dreiling, 
ithletic director, thought athlete's 
superstitious habits were idiosyncra- 
;ies rather than superstitions. An 
jdiosyncracy is a person's own atti- 
tude of mind or way of behaving that 
|s unlike that of others. 

Some athletes had lucky charms 

[that gave them confidence. Softball 

flayer Marce Roediger, Manhattan 

freshman, said her lucky charm was 

ler younger brother. "Whenever he 

:omes to my games and I'm up to bat, he sticks 

lis finger through the fence and I touch his 

jiand. I believe he gives me confidence at bat." 

Football player Karl Wertzberger, Lawrence 
sophomore, kept a rock as his lucky charm. "I 
ilvent to a weird place in Lawrence called Ethnic 
[Fashions where they have a lot of voodoo stuff, 
irhe man who worked there had a bunch of rocks 
in a circle and I picked out a rock. He had it 
written down what that rock represented. Mine 
jrepresented power." 



The basketball team elected solitude rather 
than a superstition before a game. They had a 
couple of minutes of silence to think about what 
needed to be done. " I don' t joke around on that 
day, so I can get in that frame of mind. I don't

take a nap or anything before a game," said 
Wilson Winters, Chicago sophomore. 

According to B.D. Parker, baseball coach, 
his assistants were superstitious. They wore 
the same socks and ate the same breakfast if 
the team was on a winning streak. "I don't 
believe in superstitions because they are bad 
luck," Parker said of himself. 

"I have to chew sunflower seeds before a 
game," said Jason Langford, athletic trainer. 
One cross country and track runner said she 



would pray before a race because it gave her 
strength. She also wore two necklaces as lucky 
charms. One was a silver necklace with a 
rabbit charm and the other was a gold necklace 
with a heart charm from her boyfriend. 

The desire for comfort *<,,,,< 
times motivated superstitious 
behavior. Damon Cochran, 
Oklahoma freshman, started 
shaving his head before every 
game because it was more com- 
fortable. This developed into a 
superstitious habit and Cochran 
bel ie ved he wouldn' t play as well 

if he didn't. 

Dreiling sticks to the same rou- 
tine when the team is on a win- 
ning streak. "I wear the same 
socks and undershirt when I coach. 
At tournaments we drive the same 
routes, stay at the same hotel, and 
eat at the same restaurants. Some 
people eat chicken before every 
game," said Dreiling. 

Costello Good, Wichita sopho- 
more, used his eyes to intimidate 
the opponent. "After I gain a lot 
of yards on one play I give the 
opponent a "big eye look" and try 
to intimidate them. People have 
told me it works because all they 
can see through my helmet is my 
eyes," said Costello. 

Whether superstitions worked was all a 
matter of opinion. According to these 
athletes the point wasn't if they worked, but 
how they made them feel. If they felt more 
confident then they would continue the 
superstition. 
One thing's for sure: none of these athletes 
would walk under a ladder on the way to a 
game. If they did, they'dbe sure to cross their 
fingers.

If this is really the national Year of the 
Woman, one sure couldn't tell it by looking 
at how funds are allocated and spent in the 
Butler athletic department. 

The 12-page athletic department budget, 
tightly guarded by college officials, reveals 
that men's sports are funded to the tune of 
nearly six times more than women's sports in 
the 1992-1993 budget. 

Not counting scholarship costs, estimated 
expenditures for men's baseball, football, golf 
and basketball will total more than $323,000 
this year, while women's sports-volleyball, 
basketball and softball-total nearly $57,000. 

Budgets for sports that include both men 
and women--tennis, track and cross country-- 
total almost $60,000. 

"Each college establishes its own athletic 
budget and priorities," said Jayhawk 
Conference Commissioner Bennic Lee. "You 
can't ignore women's athletics. Women's 
athletics have really come forward and the 
competition has increased greatly over the 
last few years, but colleges are not required to 
fund things equally. Just because you have a 
men's golf team does not mean you have to 
have a women's golf team." 



The sport with the smallest budget at 
Butler is the women's softball team. With a 
budget of $8,816, $3,856 goes for coaches' 
salaries, leaving the balance for team use. 

This year, the team budgeted only $10 for 
uniforms. That's not $10 per player, but $10. 
Period. Compared to $21,189 spent on 
football pads, pants, practice shorts, coaches' 
shirts, jerseys and uniforms, some softball 
players felt slighted. 

"At the beginning of the year we had to 
use the old boys' baseball jerseys during 
games and the uniforms are made for boys," 
said Tracy Frccl, sophomore softbal 1 player. 

The softball women also had to purchase 
their own purple shorts, ranging in cost from 
$7 to $13. "The girls were asked to provide 
their own purple shorts, but most all girls 
have a pair of purple shorts in their drawer," 
said Athletic Director Rick Drciling. 

Of four softball players interviewed for 
this story, four said they had to buy their 
own shorts. 

"I just wonder why we have to buy our 
own things, when I hear that the football 
team gets rooms in a motel for only a few 
hours," said freshman softball player Carissa 
Palacioz. 

The college athletic department spent 
$626 on a block of motel rooms when the 
Grizzlies traveled to Dodge City for an Oct. 




10 night game there. The team checked into 
approximately 22 motel rooms for a few hours 
to rest and change clothes before the 8:30 
kickoff. 

Earlier in the season, according to Butler 
expense reports, the football team spent 
$1,954 for lodging, $3,729 on food and 
$3,639 leasing buses for road trips to Iowa 
and Texas, while the members of the softball 
team all chipped in $5 each to stay overnight 
in a motel room while playing in the Kansas 
City area. 

"The coach, Bernie Pearson, gave them 
an option. They could either get up at 4 
a.m., or chip in a couple dollars and rent 
motel rooms for the team. The girls decided 
to pay the money for the room," Dreiling 
explained. 

That was not the first time the softball 
team had to scrimp to make ends meet. Last 
year, during the team's regularly-funded 
spring season, the women stayed at a 
teammate's house in Salina, and when the 
house was full, the remaining women slept 
outside in a tent. 

"When some of the team members were 
staying at a girl's house for a weekend 
tournament, three or four girls decided it 
would be fun to stay outside in tents. They 
definitely were not forced," Dreiling said. 

Some players from last year disagree. One 
player, who asked not to be identified 
because she feared losing her scholarship, 
said, " I woke up with dew on my face, for 
gosh sakes." 

Tracy Freel said the players had little say 
in the matter. "We were just told we were 
sleeping at Candi Holcom's house. I don't 
think we chose to stay there." 

Butler Vice President Jack Oharah said, in 
regard to what some members of the women's 
softball team called "discrepancies" in the 
college's $838,708 budget, the largest 
community college athletic budget in Kansas, 
"We do not have to spend the same amount 
of money for men and women, but what we 
do have to do is make sure there is equal 
opportunity for both."

DUMB JOCK THEORY

COPY BY MINDY NORLAND 
LAYOUT BY DEANOBA ULBBICH 

"A long time ago when football players started 
playing, they wore leather caps for helmets and 
after being repeatedly hit in the head at full 
speed something had to give. 
Usually it was their brains," Eric Peoples, Over- 
land Park sophomore, thought this was where 
the dumb jock theory originated. 

It may be unfair, but some people still assume 
that jocks are dumb. 

" In part it's true. In the college scene society 
places a greater emphasis on athletic abilities 
than on academic performances," said Topeka 
freshman Levi Baucom, football linebacker. 

Chantell Altom, Dallas sophomore agreed. 
"Because they're so busy, they always seem to 
get others to do the school work for them. They 
seem like they can get away with a lot more even 
if they don't have good grades." 

The honor roll statistics prove that Butler 
athletes are anything but dumb. From a total of 



231 athletes, 106 of them were on one of the 
three honor rolls. To make the president's honor 
roll one must have a grade point average of 4.00. 
The deans's honor roll requires a 3 .50 or higher, 
while students with a 3.00 through 3.49 were 
listed on the honorable mention. 

\M\m It takes dedication, self- 
discipline, and a lot of 
help. It feels like you re 
always being pushed." 

— Eric Peoples, 
Overland Park Sophomore 

Many student athletes realized what it took to 
make the grade. 

" It takes dedication, self-discipline and a lot of 
help. It feels like you're always being pushed," 
said Peoples. 
Brook Williams, Atlanta freshman, had a differ- 




ent philosophy. 

"All it takes is good bluffing skills. You don't 
have to study hard to make the grade. All you 
have to do is sit in the front row and ask a lot of 
questions." 

Baucom added, " You have to have commit- 
ment to the work. Organization, keeping up on 
studies and not lagging behind also helps." 

Williams believed that coaches helped fur- 
ther the myth. 

"The coaches let it exist. They put athletes in 
easier classes so it's not so hard on the player. 
They need to put football as second priority and 
grades as first priority." 

Female and male students agreed that males 
are the ones who are usually labeled with the 
theory. 

According to Peoples, the dumb jock myth 
started out with males and stuck with them 
throughout the years. He thought maybe it was 
a way women could retaliate for the dumb 
blonde myth.

the soloist. "Ninety-eight bottles of beer on

Athletes came to expect long bus rides and

throughout the year. Some athletes sang or

talked to provide entertainment, while others 
slept. Several played pranks on those who 
slept. 

Pulling pranks was one way Dennis 
Abington, Arkansas City freshman, football 
player, passed time. "If someone falls asleep 
and his mouth is open, we throw stuff in his 
mouth. He wakes up and doesn't know why 
everyone's looking at him. We all get a good 
laugh." 

Assistant track coach, Tammy Van Layes, 
said that the team was a good group on a trip 
and she never had any problems with them. 
"They usually sleep, talk, and listen to music. 
They know what they need to do at the track 
meet, so if they need the traveling time to 
prepare mentally, they have it. They all have 
their own race strategy." 

"Seventy-six bottles of beer on the wall, 76 
bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it 
around, 75 bottles of beer on the wall. Hey, 
Coach, how much farther?" 

After hours of traveling and questions of , 
"Are we there yet?" coaches and athletes were 



excited to approach their destination. The 
football team camped out in hotels during 
many away games. "With all the time we have 
in a hotel we watch TV and sleep. Sometimes 
we run up and down halls and throw ice on 
each other. It makes the stay a little more 
fun," said Jason Jasnoski, Wichita freshman 
football player. 

Baseball player Chris Thompson, Meridan 
freshman, liked to joke around with the other 
players. "We tie people's shoelaces together, 
tell jokes, and talk about girls. That passes the 
time." 

"Thirty-three botdes of beer on the wall, 33 
bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it 
around, 32 bottles of beer on the wall. Are we 
going to stop soon because I have to use the 
restroom?" 

While some used the traveling time to read 
a book or do homework, others chose to "bum 
around." "I like to listen to the radio and eat 
on the bus. I just bum around until my event 
begins," said Jennifer Eakes, Topeka freshman 
track runner. 




HIT WITH 



HOCKEY

AND SHANE HENDRICKS 
LAYOUT BY MARY KAY BLOSSER 
AND JAMIE NICHOLS 

Fast skating, slap shots, and body checks 
were now a part of college students' pastimes 
as the Wichita Thunder entered its first year 
in the Central Hockey League. 

Students who had never experienced 
hockey in person before were rapidly 
becoming avid fans. T don't like to watch 
hockey on TV. It's a lot more fun to see it 
live, said Butler student Jason Braun. "My 
first time here almost all of the players got 
into a fight in the third period." 

The hockey games were held at the 
Kansas Coliseum, north of Wichita. Tickets 
could be purchased for six or nine dollars 
depending on how close you wanted to sit to 



the ice. A special price for groups of 20 or 
more was just five dollars per ticket from Feb. 
9 -March 2. 

"My favorite part of the game is when the 
opposing team rattles the glass with their 
heads," said Butler student Brian Haskins. 

Hockey was widely known as a very 
physical sport with checks into the glass and 
occasionally on the open ice. It was also 
known for the intense fights. 

"I love it when they throw their gloves 
and start to scrap," said Butler student Zack 
Odell. 

The referees seemed to get a lot of 
attention from the fans. A loud thunderous 
roar of "BOOs" filled the arena as they came 
onto the ice. Throughout the entire game 
the refs were blamed for the unbalanced score 
and were called every four-letter word known 
to man. 

Although yelling at the refs was fun, 



nothing got the crowd more excited than 
when a player was sent to the penalty box. 
"One of my favorite insults to people thrown 
in the penalty box is 'how are your wife and 
my kids?' " said Odell 

Then the power play was in effect while 
the crowd was on its feet waiting for a score. 
"The crowd helps make the game exciting, 
they really get into it," said Braun. 

As a slap shot from 20 feet out was 
deflected into the crowd, many people 
covered their heads while others jumped 
into the way of the puck trying to get a 
souvenir to take home. 

During the last five minutes of a one- 
point match the crowd got fired up. The roar 
of the crowd made it impossible to hear the 
announcers call the game. 

The Wichita Thunder in its first year had 
made a big impression on college students all 
over the area.

Few but faithful fans - that was the 
story of Butler's support. Even though the 
spirit level was on an increase during the year, 
it could have been a lot better. "The crowd 
support here at Butler needs to improve a lot. 
The crowd doesn't ever shout or get excited. 
Most of the crowd enthusiasm comes from the 
parents and alumni while the students show 
very little spirit," said Nina Clingan, Topeka 
freshman and dance team member. 

Fans not only filled in the bleachers, 

Headliners Brad Cox, Bob Cain and CraigScribner

they also had a direct relationship with the 
athletes. "When the crowd is into the game, it 
gets me excited and pumped up. I get ready to 
play harder," said Eric Findley, Lousiville, Ken- 
tucky sophomore and baseball player. 

Fans even influenced those who pro- 
vided the half-time entertainment. "I get really 
pumped up when the crowd gets excited. I tend 
to show more spirit myself," said Clingan. 

What could have been done to im- 
prove the crowd support? One student consid- 
ered bribery. "They need to make door prizes for 
college students. They could have us win some- 
thingwhen we go to the game," suggested Janice 
Smith, Ramona freshman. 

It appeared the main cause for the lack 
of support came from the lack of publicity, al- 
though a few sports received it more than the 
others. "Football and basketball are publicized a 
little, but the other sports such as cross-country, 
track, golf, and tennis aren't. If people were 
more aware of the games, they might make an 
attempt to show up, " said Clingan. 

How much money the sport brought in 



appeared to be a factor for how much publicity 
it received. "Sports like baseball don't get any 
publicity because they don't make the college 
any money. For the sports like cross-country 
and tennis, it is even worse. Football brings in 
the money, therefore, they get the publicity," 
said Findley. 

Among all of the sports offered at But- 
ler, football and basketball came out on top 
among crowd support and student preference. 
"Football has more support because there are 
more players and much more excitement and 
punishment going on," said Findley. 

"Basketball definitely as far as student 
support. It is more exciting and the crowd 
enjoys it more because the action is closer. I 
prefer it over the others because I understand 
the game more, and the excitement level is 
much more dramatic," said Clingan. Smith felt 
the same way, "Men's basketball because there 
is more intensity to the game, more crowd 
participation, and more enthusiasm. I prefer the 
sport because I enjoy looking at the men at the 
free- throw line."

THE STORY IN 




The students, administration, faculty, and staff 
§pf Butler each bring something unique to the 
college campus. But the school year was 
much more than the books and pencils most stu- 
dents carried with them. Butler students took part 
in several projects and leisure activities. What ex- 
actly did they do? 

When the crew from television's America's Fun- 
niest People showed up for auditions, many stu- 
dents acted goofy in front of the camera for a 
chance to win $10,000. 

Others didn't need a camera to act goofy. Many 
people took part in a talent show that was spon- 
sored by the Student Senate. 

The people of the college made Butler what it 
was. They were responsible for the good times and 
the bad times. And that's just part of the story of 
the people at Butler.

Educating For Growth 



From the Land o( Politicians to the 
Land of Oz came not Dorothy, but our 
own president, Dr. Rodney V. Cox, Jr. 
Cox was born in Washington D.C., 
spent his childhood in Silver Spring, 
Md, and moved to Kansas in 1988. 

In the five years that Cox had been 
president, many changes have oc- 
curred. Some people would say too 
much change, according to Cox. En- 
rollment has grown almost 100 per- 
cent and the college's financial posi- 
tion has been strengthened greatly. 
Butler has built or bought five class- 
rooms and a dormitory building, and 
three more were in progress. Adminis- 
trators have successfully completed a 
$3 million capital campaign contribu- 
tion drive. The delivery of plans at 
other sites were significantly increased 
in quality. 

An average day for Cox was arriving 
at work at 7 a.m. and finishing at 7 p.m. 
This did not include all the activities 
he would attend four nights a week. "1 
enjoy all sports and 1 travel with the 
team sometimes. I've gotten to 



thepoint I haveto pick and choose," said 
Cox. 

Cox was in the Air Force for 30 years 
and made 1 9 major moves. The places he 
had been stationed included Vietnam, 
Germany, Thailand, and France. He 
traveled all around Europe. "Kansas is 
unique and I had not lived in the Mid- 
west before. I like it a lot because there 
are strengths in Kansans' attitude that 
still believe in old traditions that made 
this country strong. They believe in 
education," said Cox. 

"This is the best Board of Trustees we 
have ever had," said Cox. "There were 
differences in opinion on how to reach 
the quality of the college, but overall we 
were moving in the same direction." 

Cox and his wife Joyce Faye's pride and 
joy were his three daughters Lucinda, 
Melonie, Tara, and twin foster children 
Lucy and Carrie. 

"We're striving for quality and if we 
keep on striving, Butler will be a forerun- 
ner in community colleges," said Cox. 
For him there truly was no place like 
home. 




Striving for quality education, President Rodney 
Cox has served Butler for five years. In those five 
years, enrollment has increased 100 percent. Photo

-The People Behind the Decisions 



Buildings and Grounds 

Big plans were in the making for cam- 
pus construction which meant additional 
facilities for the Buildings and Grounds 
workers to maintain. The 25 full-time 
and 15 part-time employees, under the 
direction of Ted Albright, were also ex- 
pected to execute regular duties. 

Regularduties included keepingpeople 
comfortable in and out of the buildings. 
That involved controlling the tempera- 
ture inside and keeping grounds and build- 
ings in good condition. In the parking 
areas, Buildings and Grounds staff made 
sure the lots were marked properly. 

The need for science labs, classrooms, 
and offices called for a new building. Curt 
Shipley, division chairman for behavioral 
science and math/science, and 20 other 
people, including Albright, formed a com- 
mittee to plan the building. After agree- 
ing on a general concept they hired an 
architect to put all of the ideas together. 
The new 1500 Building was to be located 
east of the Student Union Building and 
north of the 700 (Fine Arts) Building. 

The school's nursing division and bi- 
ology, physics, and physical science de- 
partments will be occupying this build- 
ing. A multi-purpose meeting room with 
seating for 200 was also in the project 
plan. Approximately seven classrooms in 
the new building were expected to be 
ready by the start of the fall semester in 
August. 

The Student Union was also to un- 
dergo some renovation. The projectwould 
create more storage for the cafeteria and 
increased seating, as well as provide an 
additional serving line. More space would 
be provided for the bookstore and the 
snack bar would also be renovated. 

A childcare center, slated for the area 
west of the dormitories, was also in the 
works. The nursing department would 
manage it and it would serve as an educa- 
tional program. There would be a charge 
for the childcare. 

By next fall Buildings and Grounds 
may have additional yellow lines to paint 
on the lots. "Hopefully, by next fall an 
additional parking lot will be built on the 
east side to accommodate about 300-400 
cars," said Albright. 



Most employeesdidn't mind helping with 
construction. "I think it's good and we're 
involved. It saves some money when we can 
do some of the work in-house," said general 
services supervisor Wayne Hoyle. 

"There's a lot of it. I'm not agreeing or 
disagreeing with the construction but there 
is just a lot of progress. The college is getting 
bigger and a lot of changes are occurring," 
said lead carpenter Allen Webster. 

Albright and other employees enjoyed 
working with student workers. "It puts us in 
direct contact with the group of people that 
we are here to support. Without students, 
we wouldn't have a college," said Albright. 

Five divisions made up Buildings and 
Grounds. 

— General Services, headed by Hoyle, 
included electricity, plumbing, carpentry, 
and air conditioning. 

~ -Technical Services, headed by Duane 
Dauber, dealt with vehicles and keys. 

— Security and Safety, headed by Kay 
Rice, kept the campus secure 24 hours a day. 

— Roads and Grounds, headed by Dan 
Gonzales, maintained the campus' physical 
appearance and roads. 

--Custodial Services, headed by Paul 
Dashner, oversaw maintenance of build- 
ings. 

Board of Trustees 

Butler's Board of Trustees did more than 
determine how much money was to be spent. 
Operating the college for the Butler County 
citizens was the responsibility of the Board 
of Trustees members. 

According to Burt Bowlus, second term 
board member, the board had basically three 
functions: To determine how much money 
to take in and be spent; to hire the president; 
and to act as a buffer between the townpeople 
and the college. 

With the continuing expansion of en- 
rollment, the board made many decisions 
about the growth. "We have paid all the 
bills, expanded the theater building, hope to 
expand the Student Union in the summer, 
and hope to expand the cafeteria, kitchen, 
and bookstore. We have more students than 
room," said Bowlus. 

Other projects planned were a new sci- 
ence classroom facility and a parking lot 
next to the new building. Carrico Company 
was the company accepted by the board for 



the reconstruction. Part of the building 
will be finished by August of 1993 and 
some classrooms will be available for fall 
semester. 

The new building will hold science 
labs, community enrichment, the nurs- 
ing department, and additional class- 
rooms and office space. 

The array of students at Butler was 
varied rangingfromolderstudents, single 
parents, married students, homemakers, 
and traditional students. The board 
hoped to meet the needs of all the stu- 
dents with the community sites. 

With enrollment up 20 percent at El 
Dorado, 43 percent at Andover, five per- 
cent at McConnell, and 34 percent at 
the rest of the community sites, the board 
was concerned that some students may 
turn away. The board hopes to continu- 
ally expand. 

Each board member's term lasted 
four years. Members were elected by the 
district. There were three districts for 
Butler County, with two people elected 
from each district. One member was 
elected at large. Brian Warren served as 
chairman, Gayle Krause served as vice 
chairman, and Pete Ferrell served as sec- 
retary. The members were Robert Burch, 
John Grange, Burt Bowlus, and Charles 
Calvert. 

During the school year the board 
met the second Tuesday of every month. 
In June and July they planned extra meet- 
ings concerning the budget. "In the 
meetings we discuss policy making and 
expenditures. I believe that Butler is a 
fine college and I'm proud to be a part of 
it," said Krause. 

According to Bowlus, the college 
will save about $200,000 a year by com- 
bining with Andover High School. The 
board hopes to put to use 40 acres of land 
owned by the college in the rapidly grow- 
ing Andover area. 

Carrying the weight of the college 
on its shoulders was a responsibility in 
which the board took pride. "This is my 
second year and though we may get in 
disagreements, we work well together. 
We are close knit," said Bowlus.

To The "Ensz" of The World 



Planet earth, home of humans and 
home of the one and only Roland Ensz. 
He traveled all around the world, had 
been through many extraordinary ex- 
periences, and through it all he man- 
aged to keep a marriage for 38 years. 

Ensz was otherwise known as the 
traveling man. He had been to China, 
Russia, Germany, Switzerland and 
Hong Kong. He had also been to 
Canada, Mexico, Netherlands and 
Austria. 

"Austria is the best place I have trav- 
eled to. The people are friendly and 
the food is good but cheap. The scen- 
ery is beautiful there," said Ensz. 

A major milestone in Ensz's life was 
entering the The Korean War . He was 
drafted at the age of 21 and served in 
the war for two out of the three years. 
Ensz was assigned to Fitsimmons Hos- 
pital in Denver, Colorado, and at- 
tended medical school for one year. 
He was then transferred to Fort Chaffee 
Hospital in Arkansas and stayed there 
for a year. 

Ensz received his master's degree at 



the University o( North Colorado then 
got his second master's at Emporia State 
University. He also attended The 
Wichita State University, Pittsburg State 
University, Bethel College, and Bradley 
University in Illinois. 

"I wanted to get as many credit hours as 
possible so that I would be eligible to 
teach more subjects," said Ensz. It not 
only made him eligible to teach one 
subject, but six including Introduction to 
Teaching, State and Local Government, 
American Government, History, and his 
favorite, Geography. 

"It's a fun course because you pick up all 
sorts of topics, like politics, religion and 
economics," said Ensz. 

Ensz managed to handle his rigorous 
schedule and a marriage for 38 years. He 
also had two sons aged 35 and 36. His 
words of wisdom for a successful marriage 
was said best in , " be friends." 

While Ensz enjoyed traveling, he most 
enjoyed talking about his travels in the 
classroom and would invite the students 
to go along with him on his next trip, 
"My treat." 




Having TRAVELED ALL over the world, Roland 
Ensz has collected stamps, postcards, coins and 
matchbook covers from more than nine 
countries, including China, Russia and Austria.

rDevoted To Dreams i 



When Mike Harris, El Dorado fresh- 
man, was not running track he was 
sketching drawings. 

Harris attended Circle High School 
and chose Butler after he received a 
track scholarship. "I felt Butler was a 
good starting point," said Harris. 

As a child, Harris began drawing war 
pictures as soon as he could hold a 
pencil. He drew with charcoal, paints, 
oil pastels, pen, and pencil. Other 
pictures consisted of faces of women, 
the head of a horse, fruit, nature, and 
still life. To further his talent he took 
art classes offered at Butler. 

Harris ran track throughout high 
school and went to state his last three 
years. His dream was to go to the 
Olympics and run hurdles. During the 
summer he watched the Olympics on 
television. "I sacrificed going out with 
friends to watch the Olympics," said 
Harris. 

A typical weekend consisted of work- 
ing at AAA Builders Supply, playing 
Nintendo, eating a lot, and going out 
with friends. Whenever he got the 



chance, he enjoyed traveling. 

Hanis planned on continuing his edu- 
cation at either Kansas State University 
or Emporia State University majoring in 
architectural engineering. 

Harris' family consisted of his parents, 
whom he lived with, two older brothers 
that were in the navy, and an older sister. 

With practice and dedication, Harris' 
dream of participating in the Olympics 
may not be that distant.

Receiving his inspiration from God, Jason Tho- 
mas plans to go into ministry and teach the gospel 
to others. Photo lyy Nicole Fry

Anyone who spent time with Derby 
freshman Jason Thomas would have 
learned that he had a personality of strong 
moral and religious beliefs that he cred- 
ited to the closeness of his family. 

Nine years ago his father, a Baptist 
preacher, died. Thomas said his father's 
example of living by what he preached 
inspired him to devote himself to God. 
"I felt a calling in my life to serve God 
in the area of ministry to others about the 
gospel of Christ," said Thomas. 

Thomas was a full-time student major- 
ing in Liberal Arts so that he would be 
able to get into the ministry. 

"After Butler I will transfer to WSU 
and later go into a seminary. After WSU 
1 want to settle down, get married and 
have a family. I want to live the rest of my 
life in God's will until Christ returns. I 
also want my family centered on God and 
I want us to be bound together by strong 
love," said Thomas. 

"I like smaller schools where it is more 
personal, teachers know you and it's an 
easier transition from the high school 
scene to the college atmosphere," Tho- 
mas said. 



Aside from going to school and work- 
ing at Studio-A in Wichita, Thomas 
enjoyed participating in martial arts, 
specializing in Tae Kwon-Do. Thomas 
also spent some oi his free time riding 
motorcycles and listening to music and 
looked forward to attending activities 
of the singles group at the First Church 
of the Nazarene once a week. 

He pointed out what he thought was 
wrong with the world today. "It's clear 
to see that with the rise of gang violence 
and murder that we need the Messiah to 
cleanse our hearts before the coming of 
the judgment day." 

"It is unfortunate that we, as a nation, 
are following the sinful desires that lead 
to destruction. If we don't repent, im- 
morality will be our grave," said Tho- 



mas. 



Thomas had strong beliefs and was 
not afraid to share his religious or friendly 
advice with anyone. Thomas truly did 
set an example for everyone who hap- 
pened to cross his way. If you asked him 
who motivated such a kind-hearted hu- 
man being, he would have answered, 
"God."

Bye Bye Bush, Hello Clintoih 



The year 1 992 saw the most con- 
troversial Presidential election 
held in years. There were four 
candidates: Republican George 
Bush, Democrat Bill Clinton, In- 
dependent Ross Perot, and Liber- 
tarian Andre Marrou. 

By now everyone knows that 
Clinton won the election. Before 
the winner was announced, some 
of the students voiced their opin- 
ions. 

Jeff Wells, Wichita freshman, 
voted for Clinton. He said, "I 
voted for him because of his edu- 
cation and economic reforms. 
Clinton believes health care 
should be a right and not just for 
the privileged few who can afford 
it. Clinton says welfare shouldn't 
be a way of life, but a stepping 
stone to becoming financially in- 
dependent." 

Marge Arnold, El Dorado fresh- 
man, also voted for Clinton. 
"Clinton is not a 'globalist pig' 
who sends our jobs to other coun- 
tries at the expense of taxpayers," 
said Arnold. "He also doesn't be- 
lieve in 'trickle down' economics 
and stands behind the family leave 
bill." 

On the other hand, Rick Ander- 
son, El Dorado freshman, voted 
for Bush. "Bush does what he can, 
but can't do everything while there 
is obviously an opposing Demo- 
cratic congress," said Anderson. 

Dave Williams, Augusta sopho- 
more, voted for Perot but his sec- 
ond choice would have been 
Clinton. Williams said, "We need 
a change of blood." 

According to Michael Bird, El 
Dorado sophomore, 44 students 
registered to vote during the cam- 



pus registration drive. He said, "The 
reason for more involvement this 
year is because there are more issues 
involving the younger generation, 
and they need to take an active part." 

Mock elections were held in some 
of the classes. In both of speech 
instructor Phil Speary's classes, 
Clinton won by a landslide. At the 
beginning of first semester, Speary 
polled classes about whom they would 
support. Some didn't even know 
who was running and the majority 
didn't support anyone. The rest were 
split fifty percent Bush and fifty per- 
cent Clinton. 

After a research assignment about 
the campaign issues, the poll in one 
class came to nine for Clinton, three 
for Bush, and three for Perot. In the 
other class, 10 were for Clinton, three 
for Perot, and two for Bush. Speary 
said, "I think that shows who stu- 
dents felt was really addressing the 
issues." 

In social studies instructor Roland 
Ensz's classes at McConnell, Perot 
was first, then Clinton and Bush. 
Ensz said, "These students are wor- 
ried about the four trillion dollar 
national debt. They don't like the 
dishonest congressmen. They were 
unhappy about the savings and loan 
event. They are not sure if they want 
to believe Clinton, or will it be 'poli- 
tics as usual' once he takes office." 

Ensz added, "The 1992 election 
was ripe for a change. The people are 
worried as to where we are going as a 
country. What is going to happen to 
us socially? Can a younger President 
give the country leadership to get us 
out of this mess? Together, Bush and 
Perot got more votes. I wish Clinton 
well. He will have to produce, or he 
will be a one-term President regard- 



less of his good intentions." 

According to Time magazine, 
on the national level, an estimated 
54 percent of the population actu- 
ally voted out of 189 million eli- 
gible compared to 50 percent out 
of 182,600,000 in 1988. 
The popular vote was for Clinton 
with 43 percent, followed by Bush 
with 38 percent and Perot with 19 
percent. 

Clinton got 48 percent of those 
who said they were voting for the 
first time compared to 29 percent 
for Bush and 23 percent for Perot. 
Clinton ran ahead of Bush in ev- 
ery age group, but his largest mar- 
gin was among those between 18 
and 24. 

That is where the students at 
Butler and other colleges around 
the U.S. came in. They were con- 
cerned about the issues such as the 
environment, health, jobs, educa- 
tion and the budget deficit, and 
those are the exact issues that re- 
ceived the biggest percent of vot- 
ers for Clinton. From the 18-24 
age group, Clinton received 47 
percent of the votes as compared 
to Bush with 3 1 percent and Perot 
with 22 percent. 

"I thought the election was very 
exciting. I campaigned for candi- 
dates, and I was pleased to see 
students get so involved in dis- 
cussing politics. Maybe student 
apathy is a thing of the past," said 
Wahto.

rFrom Koalas to Kansas 



At a glance Cameron McCormick 
looked like a typical college student 
straight from a Kansas wheat farm. 
But once he started talking people 
were instantly drawn to his intriguing 
Australian accent. How did 
McCormick, a nineteen-year-old from 
Melbourne, Australia, end up at But- 
ler? 

McCormick heard about Butler 
through some Texas Tech students 
who were playing golf in Australia. 
McCormick was caddy ing for them, 
and told them of his interest of playing 
golf in the United States. They gave 
him some college phone numbers, and 
in search of a scholarship, he found 
Butler. 

He had not decided on a major, but 
planned to get a four year college de- 
gree. McCormick said, " I'm here to 
play golf. My education is just some- 
thing to back me up if I fail." 

McCormick played golf for three 
years. Along with golf, McCormick 
enjoyed having a good time, playing 
sports, and traveling. " I love to play 
any kind of sport that has action. I love 



to have a good time," said McCormick. 
Since McCormick had been in Kansas, 
he noticed major differences from Aus- 
tralian culture. For instance, he lived on 
a sea coastline and living inland was 
quite a change. 

"Another difference is driving on the 
wrong side of the road. In Australia, we 
drive on the opposite side, so if I ever 
decide to buy a car I'll have to make the 
change." 

McCormick also had to adjust to the 
Kansas drinking age. "The legal drinking 
age in Melbourne is 18. Even though I'm 
not a big drinker, it's still different," said 
McCormick. 

In Melbourne, McCormick lived with 
his father, a contractor who bought land 
to develop for new buildings. His mother 
was a banker. " I miss my family a lot, but 
I'm going home over Christmas for a 
month to see them." 

Despite the fact that he missed his 
family, McCormick said that "compared 
to other countries I've traveled in, 
America ranks at the top. I'm very im- 
pressed with the people. They treat me 
very, very good."

attending Butler on a golf scholarship. His inter- 
ests include golf, playing othersports and traveling.

rSingers Stir Up Emotion 



When a person thought of a group 
like barbershop quartet, men in cum- 
merbunds and bow ties came to mind. 
This perception did not fit the newly 
formed women's a cappella quartet 
group, Ad Lib, under the direction of 
Ron Garber, vocal instructor. 

The group included McPherson fresh- 
man Melissa Jones, baritone; Belle 
Plaine sophomore Sheena Hamilton, 
bass; Dallas sophomore Chantell 
Altom, tenor; and Peck sophomore 
Susan Hancock, lead. 

In addition to performing at con- 
certs, special events, and at area high 
schools, Ad Lib members spent most of 
their time in intense, two hour prac- 
tices. They also spent four to five hours 
a week in regular practices, one hour at 
Garber's home, and another hour 
watching a similar group, the Sweet 
Adelines. 

"I think the girls are doing a great job. 
They are all strong musicians and hope- 
fully they've started a tradition that 
will be with Butler a very long time," 
said Garber. 



Ad Lib's sound evolved from such 
groups as Air Supply, Chicago, and four- 
part quartet groups like the Sweet 
Adelines. 

"Our goal is to stir up emotion in the 
audience. We have songs that will make 
you laugh, then cry," said Hamilton. 

Jones added, "We want to make the 
audience feel what we feel when we sing. 
It's easier to feel the emotions in the 
songs when I know that the audience is 
there to hear us perform." 

Scranton freshman Kevin Ripley said 
that Ad Lib was a wonderful asset to 
Butler and that the group would soon 
become an outstanding tradition. 

After Butler, Jones planned to attend 
Bethany College, Hamilton wanted to 
go to a college that offered an art therapy 
program, Hancock will attend The 
Wichita State University and Altom 
planned to return home to attend South- 
western Assembly of God where she will 
become a children's pastor. 

Hancock planned a ten-year reunion 
for Ad Lib to perform as Butler's first 
female a cappella group. 










As Butler's first women's barbershop quartet, 
Ad Lib members Sheena Hamilton, Melissa Jones, 
Susan Hancock and Chantell Altom perform at 
concerts, special events and area high schools.

Lights, Camera, Action-, 



Every staff member in the Media 
Resource Center was just as impor- 
tant as an individual piece was to a 
jigsaw puzzle. Without one of them 
the unit would not be complete. 

The MRC, which was a part of the 
Instructional Services Division, was 
composed of five areas headed by Di- 
rector Joe Hostetler. Hostetler was 
responsible for administration of the 
operations of the MRC and for activi- 
ties associated with telecourses. 

Stacee Pitts was the media assis- 
tant/secretary and took charge of 
scheduling use of equipment and soft- 
ware to be used by faculty, staff, and 
the community members. Equipment 
included video tapes, film strips, over- 
heads and dubbed audio video tapes. 

"Through our distribution of au- 
dio-visual material and equipment we 
enhance classroom teaching. We help 
make classes interesting. The com- 
munity is also welcome to use every- 
thing," said Pitts. 

With the title of instructional 
graphics designer, Roberta Sheahan 
produced any artwork needed on cam- 
pus for instructors and staff. Some of 
the artwork could be seen on posters, 
buttons, lab manuals, laminated items, 
and flyers. Most of the work was done 
on a Macintosh. 



"Visual communication plays a big 
role in classrooms and my job is to make 
that clearer," said Sheahan. 

Janice Hilyard acted as the coordina- 
tor of distance education which included 
telecourses and Instructional Television 
Fixed Services. She was also responsible 
for working with division chairs in the 
selection of courses and hiring and train- 
ing faculty. Scheduling, marketing and 
implementing the courses was also one of 
her many duties. 

The television producer-director, sta- 
tion manager of MRC and Cable 13 was 
Renato Sobrevinas. He was responsible 
for all studio productions. He produced 
In Focus , Griz 1 , TheRandy Smithson Show 
and any other educational shows. In 
Focus dealt with current Butler topics. 
President Rodney Cox appeared on the 
monthly program Griz I to update view- 
ers about college issues and events. On 
the Randy Smithson Show Coach Smithson 
discussed the basketball players and his 
winning techniques. 

Maintaining all of the audio visual 
and studio equipment was not an easy job 
according to Greg Ball, service techni- 
cian. "It's hard to keep things going on a 
shoestring budget," said Ball. He also 
changed lightbulbs on the transmitting 
tower, bought equipment and designed 
new systems. 



"I like building new things because 
it's a challenge doing things I haven't 
done before," said Ball. 

The MRC was a central source for 
all of the AV communications which 
made getting equipment on campus a 
lot more convenient for everyone. Each 
one of these individuals, in addition to 
other staff members, served as a sepa- 
rate puzzle piece which made the pic- 
ture complete.

MORE TO LIFE THAN. . . 



PARTIES 
AND BABES 

Hg COPY AND LAYOUT BY JAMIE NICHOLS 



"Wayne's World, 
Wayne's World, party on, 
excellent!" 

"Party on, Wayne." 

"Party on, Garth." 
"Wait a minute! This isn't 
a rerun of Saturday Night 
Live. This is the real world." 

"Oh! In that case, 'Real 
world, real world, party on, 
excellent!' " 

Despite what those two 
excellent dudes Wayne and 
Garth thought, real life was 
not always party, party, 
party. Some dedicated But- 
ler students, faculty and 
administration were always 
hard at work, either voic- 
ing their opinions by pro- 



testing for various causes or 
teaching dance and chore- 
ography to get an early start 
on their careers. 

Just like MTV's Real 
World, which followed 
around seven young adults 
living in the same apart- 
ment, Real Life took part in 
the everyday lives of five 
students, two teachers and 
an administrator to get, as 
Wayne and Garth would 
say, an "extreme close-up" 
of their daily activities. 

These people proved to 
Wayne and Garth that 
there was more to the story 
of life than parties and 
babes.

nifer Carra, dancer, actress, choreographer, and 
student. 

Those who encountered Carra as she 
was running from class to the theater took a few 
seconds to catch her positive oudook on life and 
her readiness to laugh. "I try not to take things 
too seriously. If you do, you'll just get bogged 
down. You have to laugh at everything, then 
everything's okay. I definitely have a lot more of 
a comical side to me than a serious side," said 
Carra. 

Surprisingly, Carra wasn't always out- 
going and involved. In fact, she described herself 
as a recluse. "I was real, real, shy. I was your 
typical, classical, look-at-me-for -two-seconds- 
and-you-would-know-it-all nerd all through el- 
ementary school. I had the boy hair cut, the big, 
botde- thick glasses that turned dark in the sun, 
and the D.A.V. clothes - 1 was set," said Carra. 

Carra didn't associate with many people 
during those years. She went home and read 
books after school. A teacher's pet was what she 
considered herself. She me t her best friend when 
the girl was dared to go to Carra's door and talk to 
her. "That's how reclusive I was. She was 
DARED!" exclaimed Carra. 

Her friend talked her into trying out for 
the pom-pon squad in junior high. When she 
made the squad and become involved in an 
activity, her life "launched" from there. "Once I 
started high school and got in theater and be- 
came comfortable around people I was fine. I got 
rid of the glasses and grew my hair out. I had an 
afro for about a year, but it finally grew out and 
I wasn't as much as a nerd anymore." 

Long before the launching of her social 
life came the start of her dancing career. When 
she was eight years old, Carra convinced her 
mom after four years of begging to let her enroll 
in a tap class. From there came jazz, acrobatics, 
clogging, and ballet. "Dancing is not something 
everybody can do. It's something I enjoy doing 
and I could do. It's an aspect of theater that 
separates you from the crowd. If you know how 
to sing or dance you stand a better chance of 
getting somewhere with it," said Carra. 

From the look of the activities she had 
been involved in, it appeared Carra was getting a 
head-start. Her dancing ability led her to choreo- 
graph show choir performances of her not only 
her own high school, West High of Wichita, but 
that of Maize High School as well. 

Four years ago the instructors at her 
dance studio noticed Carra's potential and of- 
fered her the chance to be a student teacher. 
"You have to dance there for so long and if you are 
capable, they'll send you through a training pro- 



gram in which you learn all the dances they are 
teaching. You don't get pa id, it'sjust considered 
an honor to be selected," said Carra. 

The student teachers started off with 
a baby class of three year olds. "If you can 
handle them, you can handle anything," ex- 
plained Carra. After a trial period of a few 
months, the student teacher was moved up to 
teaching talent units which were the competi- 
tion show groups. 

"Right now, I have one baby class and 
my competition groups. The thing that is tough 
is coming up with a really good routine and 
getting the kids excited. In my senior group the 
oldest girls are between the ages of 15 and 17 
and having to listen to a 19-year-old was weird 
at first. But my clogging group is really on this 
year. Both my junior and senior doggers took 
first place at their last competition. 

"I now make nine dollars an hour which 
is good for a college student. If you can find a j ob 
doing something you enjoy and you only have 
to do it once a week - it's worth it," said Cana. 

It does not come as a surprise that 
Carra was asked to dance professionally. She 
was selected out often applicants to dance with 
the Osmond Brother Show in Branson, MO. 
After much thought, she decided against it. "I 
turned it down to finish school and stay close to 
home a little longer. I might do it this summer 
though," explained Carra. 

Although dancing was a big part of 
Carca's life, it was not her only talent. Theater 
also played a vital part in her life. Carra was in 
every play during high school and at Buder. She 
was also on the forensics team and took first 
place at the state meet with a duet act. 

Carra had played out a variety of roles 
ranging from the sincere gypsy woman who was 
having difficulties forgetting a past lover to a 
comical maid for God's Favorite. She had 
difficulty choosing her favorite role. "I don't 
know, that's really hard. Comedies are funny, 
but I think I'm better at drama, but then I have 
more fun with comedy." 

Drama or comedy, Cana definitely 
found theater enjoyable. "I like to observe 
other people and theater gives me the chance to 
show what I have observed. It's fun to hear a 
live response off of something you do." 

Those in the audience weren't the 
only ones who observed Carra and her talent, 
Dr. Phil Speary, one of her dieater instructors, 
noted the qualities about Carra that impressed 
him the most. "She is a growing person. I have 
seen her grow a lot during the time she has been 
here. She is talented and hard-working. She is 



definitely an asset to the groups she is involved 



in. 



Carra herself had high regards for the 
theater department. "I love the theater depart- 
ment here at Butler. It is very professional. I feel 
even though we are a juco we have some of the 
finestfacilities and the greatest instructors around. 
We also put out the same quality of work as a four 
year university. I have learned a lot." 

Somehow in between dance classes and 
theater rehearsal, Carra squeezed in a part-time 
job at the art gallery on campus. Her job involved 
sending out mailers, giving tours, and keeping 
track of the number of people that went through 
the gallery. 

When Carra was on break, she spent 
time in Wichita with her parents and younger 
sister to whom she was very close. Her sister took 
dance classes from her. According to Carra, that 
situation worked out well. "She is my best stu- 
dent. She's awesome, in fact, she's better than I 
am." 

Somewhere in between all of the hustle 
and bustle, Carra found time to relax with her 
hobbies. "I enjoy sitting by the beach eating 
caviar and grapes fed to me by big men with big 
muscles and tans. No, really my hobbies are 
dancing and theater of course, and watching 
hockey games. I love to go roller blading with my 
sister, and um . . . showering and bathing," she 
answered laughing. 

"Oh, and baking cookies," she added. 
Later it was discovered that the disastrous event 
of baking cookies was an inside story among her 
roommates. "My domestic qualities are very 
limited. I don't do much cleaning. I don't do 
much cooking. My nickname has never been 
Betty Crocker. It's never been Donna Reed and 
never will be, because I don't like to clean. I don't 
have time for it. When I cook, I usually don't 
know what I'm doing. I follow the direction but 
they're wrong everytime. If I made up my own, I 
wouldbefine. Butlcansew. I can sew very well." 

With all of those talents, you had to 
wonder what Carra had chosen for her profes- 
sion, which was definitely not being a housewife. 
"I'm thinking about going to Emporia State and 
doing theater out there and majoring in psychol- 
ogy. I either want to get to where I am good 
enough at theater so I could pursue it for a career, 
or I would like to get into psychology and be a 
psychologist and own my own little clinic. I 
would also like to go into the mission field. They 
are three very separate career choices, but diose 
are the things I like, theater, people and God."

Making every moment count, 
Paula Blaine had her 
educational life mapped out 
with secondary plans in place, 
in case of unforeseen 
circumstances- In preparation 
for a teaching career she 
involved herself in many 
school and non-school 
activities. 

"Upon graduation I plan to go 
on a mission trip to Paraguay 
with the Destination Summit 
New Tribes Mission."

Spending time enjoying nature is a priority in 
Paula Blaine's life. If the weather cooperates, she 
likes to take her lunch out on the nature trail, sit 
down next to a tree, read a book and then feed her 
left-overs to the squirrels. Since the weather is too 
cool this day, she settles on a brisk walk. (Photo by

Destination Summit is a non- 
denominational faith missionary society 
dedicated to converting unreached tribal 
peoples to Christianity. In Paraguay, the 
missionaries are working to translate the 
scriptures into the language of the Angaite 
tribe. 

"I would like to go to school in a Spanish 
speaking country such as Cuernavaca, Mexico, 
so I could hone my language skills. English 
becomes your crutch or security blanket unless 
you're constantly forced to use the other 
language. 

"I like languages. It is like a grown up 
version of secret codes. I have some very good 
friends whose first language is Spanish. A 
friend of mine tells me that I need to speak in 
Spanish more often. I'm more relaxed speaking 
Spanish now than I was in high school because 
now I sometimes think in Spanish. I want to 
use Spanish words sometimes when I'm 
speaking to an English-speaking person, but 
then I realize I can't. 

"I want to be a bilingual teacher of children 
anywhere from pre-kindergarten through third 
grade. I'm most interested in first grade 
because that is where the learning of math and 
reading begins. I believe that teachers color 
many of our opinions in the beginning grades. 
I want to be able to show children the fun of 
learning." 

Blaine takes teaching very seriously. She 
has, in fact, been teaching others since 
middle school. "I started helping friends in 
eighth grade and became a peer counselor in 
high school. I enjoy helping people with their 
school work. I especially like to help people 
who have a preconceived notion about a 
subject. For instance, I used to hate math, but 
after working at it a while I started to like it, 
especially trigonometry." 

Blaine has continued tutoring at the Center 
for Independent Study. She is a peer counselor 
for students of Spanish, Biology and Human 
Growth and Development. I like to work with 
people one on one, so 1 like tutoring. It's much 
better than working at McDonalds. I've also 
grown very close to some of the other tutors. I 
sometimes feel guilty when I compare myself 
to some of the other tutors, especially the 
foreign students. They are so dedicated and 
directed. They know what direction they want 
to go in and they go for it. I'm talking about 
people like Natasa Spaic and Chun Hyung- 
Jae.' 

Marilyn White, faculty advisor for the 
tutors, knew Paula for the two years she 
tutored. "I think she's an outstanding person. 
Her personality and character are unique. She 
has a different way of looking at the world. It 
is holistic... she sees the different connections 
between the different areas she studies. I've 
heard that seeing those connections is a true 
sign of intelligence. 

"She also has a sense of 'noblesse oblige' 
which means 'privilege has responsibility'. It's 
an old-fashioned term used to indicate one's 
actions are kindly and generous to those 
around one. That explains why Paula is a good 



tutor. She has both head and heart — the 
necessary ingredients," White said. 

In addition to tutoring, Paula was also 
elected president of the local chapter of Phi 
Theta Kappa, an honor society for two-year 
colleges. The chapter held its first induction 
ceremony in January 1992 so it was still a 
young organization when Paula became leader. 
"There's lots of groundwork to lay since the 
organization is so new on this campus. One of 
our first goals is to get to know each other. 
Many of us walked into the first meeting and 
realized we didn't know anyone in the room. I 
like working with our faculty advisor, Susan 
Pfieffer. She has good ideas and is a good 
sounding board for our ideas. 

"We attended the regional conference 
which was held at Pratt Community College. 
After the business portion of the meeting was 
completed everyone headed for Larned for a 
tour of Ft. Larned and the Santa Fe Trail 
Museum. The tour included a sack lunch in 
the mess hall of Ft. Larned. 

Blaine was in the honors program and 
participated in the honors seminars. "I like 
the seminar classes because they meet once per 
week and the topic usually changes each week. 
Also the grade is based upon participation 
rather than on busy work and tests. It is a 
critical thinking class which you take home 
with you. Many of the things we talk about 
are the same things that are being discussed on 
television." 

The honors program also required Blaine to 
complete an individual project. She worked 
with Dr. Bill Langley on a project which 
involved capturing and banding and then 
releasing crows in an effort to determine their 
nesting habits. "Our first task was to build a 
better crow cage. Our first plan was to build a 
cage with three sections each eight feet long. 
We ended up with only one section which we 
built out of two-by-twos and chicken wire. I 
was afraid to use the saw so he did the cutting. 
The design was an untested one. After 
capturing the crows we will weigh them and 
sex them. We are looking at attaching 
transmitters to them if possible." 

Saws are not the only devices which make 
Blaine nervous. When she enrolled in jewelry 
class, she found out she had to deal with 
oxygen-acetylene welders and polishers. 
"Jewelry class is an adventure. I'm not used to 
working with what I call a blowtorch and I 
have to work with drills. It's very scary. I've 
been told before that I'm a klutz so it's weird to 
be working with tools that can hurt me if I 
make even the smallest slip. I made a ring and 
I'm working on a set which includes a 
necklace, earrings and a ring. I had to choose 
between Jewelry II and Stained Glass II for 
spring semester. I chose stained glass because 
I'd rather have a tiffany-style lamp than I 
would another piece of jewelry." 

Blaine could quite often be found on the 
nature trail which is located behind Building 
and Grounds. If the weather was nice she liked 
to take her lunch out on the trail with her. "I 
like being outside. I can spend hours outside 



watching animals or reading a book. I found 
a squirrel nest one day so I take food out to 
them now. 

"I hate to see people abuse nature. If I see 
trash laying on the ground I pick it up and 
carry it back with me to the trash. I also 
believe strongly in recycling. I think recycling 
programs should be mandatory. When I see an 
aluminum can in the trash can I pick it up 
and put it in the recycling bin." 

Blaine's leisure moments were as busy as her 
school life. "I'm a baseball fanatic. I usually 
play Softball in the summer and I collect 
baseball cards. I've even gone to Kansas City 
to see the Royals play. I hope to go to Denver 
to watch the Colorado Rockies when they 
start playing there next year. 

"I also like to walk my dogs. I love animals. I 
have two mice and two dogs. When I was 
younger I also had pet rabbits, but I had to sell 
them when we moved into the house I live in 
now because of zoning requirements," said 
Blaine. 

Besides her involvement with sports and her 
pets, Blaine also enjoyed reading, painting, 
doing cross-stitch and teaching Sunday school 
classes. 

After graduation Blaine plans to attend 
either Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, 
Mo. or Emporia State University. 



"She has a different 



way of looking at the 
world. It is holistic... she 
sees the different con- 
nections between the dif- 



ferent areas she studies. 



Fve heard that seeing 
those connections is a 
sign of true intelli- 



gence,

^hen I was in fifth grade I got into organized ball 
Len went on from there. I also started varsity as 
sophomore in high school," said McCabe. 
I like it because it's a fun sport to play and I've 
;en playing it for a long time. My dad played it 
Texarkana Junior College andsoitkind of runs 
l the family. I also like it a lot because of the 
nripetitive nature. You're always going against 
imebody else trying to show that you're better, 
's a fun sport to play, you can play it anywhere 
id anytime," said McCabe. 
\lthough his father played basketball, McCabe 
id that as a child he didn't push him to follow 
i his footsteps. "He didn't try to influence me 
uch when I was a young child but he did more 
hen I got older. When I was younger I played 
isketball, soccer, and almost any other kind of 
>ort. But once I got older I got more into 
isketball. My dad noticed that and he tried to 
iow me some tricks of what he did in basket- 
ill," said McCabe. 

"He influenced my decision to come to Butler 
eatly. He was the one who was saying good 
lings about the coach, Randy Smithson, all of 
te time," said McCabe. 
One thing that McCabe appreciated about 
isketball was his coach. "I knew about him 
xause of him winning the conferences and his 
inning record. Also, I knew about him from 
he Wichita State University and what he did 
r them playing there. Basically, I knew he won 
lot of games, and I wanted to be on a winning 
am so that's why I came here," said McCabe. 
McCabe remembered a couple of times when 
isketball wasn't all that fun. "The majority of 
juries I have had to deal with involve my 
ikies. My ankles are so bad that I really don't 
lve any more ligaments left in either of them, 
/e had stress fractures and hyper-extended some 
Jf. 

'One time I was playing a game with two bright 
een casts on both ankles. They looked really 
ce, and they were so heavy. I used to scratch 
:ople up with them, not on purpose, and then 
ey would come up to me with little scratches on 
eir leg and say, 'Hey, look what you did to me'." 
Growing up in Derby, McCabe was imprinted 
ith strong moral values from his father. "He was 
le of the strictest people I know. He was 
itremely strict. If you didn't do something 
:actly the way he said, you were in trouble. We 
so went to church and had certain chores that 
; had to do. He also taught us other important 
anners such as respecting our elders. 
'My mother was strict in her ways, but she was 
ore the easy- going type. She would mess 
ound, kind of freelance, she knew how to have 
n," said McCabe. 

"Both of my parents have made the biggest 
lpression in my life. Neither one has been more 



influential than the other. My dad taught me 
my moral values and how to use straight judg- 
ments. On the other hand, my mom taught me 
how to have fun at what I'm doing. The two of 
them have basically shown me how to live. 

Another person who made impact on 
McCabe's life was his cousin. "It's kind of 
reverse of what you might think, but he got 
involved in drugs and showed me that that was 
a bad thing to do. It showed me the other path 
and how it went," said McCabe. 

McCabe's relationship with his older sister 
has changed over the years. "When we were 
younger we didn't quite get along. We would 
always tease each other. One day she came in 
while I was sleeping and just starting jumping 
on me. 

"Later on we started getting along better and 
we have gotten along great ever since about 
third grade. We have just become buddies. I'll 
tell her stuff, she'll tell me stuff and we will swap 
stories about what to do and what not to do." 

Basketball was only one of the many activities 
McCabe was involved in. He had a variety of 
other hobbies. In his spare time he installing 
stereos and alarm systems and did any other type 
of handy work. He always had time to help 
friends get their cars fixed up. 
McCabe gained his knowledge about cars and 
electronics from working as a mechanic for 
Cole's Mower Service in Derby for two years. 

McCabes pride and joy was his white 1991 
Isuzu pick-up truck. Which he refurbished 
himself. "I bought the truck as a regular stock 
truck. I didn't get anything in it, no stereo, no 
air conditioner, nothing, it was stripped. After 
I got it I lowered it then stuck some blocks in the 
back and cranked down the front, that's when 
you take out the springs and it just drops down 
the whole front end. Then I tinted the windows 
and put the stereo in just last summer. I put 
some tweeters in the roof and a big bass in the 
back with an amp. It's a pretty nice little truck, 
it gets me where I'm going, "said McCabe. 
When he had some free time he went skiing in 
Colorado. He was a chance taker and would 
attempt to jump thirty-foot ramps. Sometimes 
he would let his compassion for his fellow skiers 
take over and he would help others learn to ski 
the way he knew how. 

He was also a resident assistant in the East 
Dorms. "I have a lot of responsibilities to the 
housing staff here. I'm in charge of the floor and 
have to follow and enforce the rules. Basically, 
if somebody does something wrong I rat on 
them. I know that sounds bad but that's my 
job," said McCabe. 

When he wasn't busy being a skier, basketball 
player, RA, or handyman he spent his time 
doing virtually nothing. "If I have a minute of 



spare time, I like to just talk to my friends or just 
relax and watch some movies. Actually I like to 
do nothing and just vegetate. I like peaceful 
serene surroundings," said McCabe. 

A huge red and white Conoco gas station sign 
hung above his cluttered desk in his room. "It was 
when I was in high school, my friend and I went 
to an abandoned Conoco station and found i t. So 
we put in the back of the truck and doodeled off 
with it. It used to light up but all of the bulbs 
burnt out," said McCabe. 

McCabe said, "I'm not one to talk about myself 
but if I had to say what my best quality is I would 
have to say that I never lie. I will always tell the 
truth. I will also work hard at what I do and try 
to do the best I can. I think being truthful is the 
best policy," said McCabe. 

McCabe knew exactly where he wanted to be 
and what he wanted to do in the next ten years. 
"I want to be living in Colorado working either as 
general practitioner in my own little office or as 
surgeon at a Colorado hospital," said McCabe, a 
pre-med major. 

McCabe had other talents besides dribbling 
down the basketball court His friends described 
him as an outstanding person with excellent 
qualities. All of them said he knew how to make 
people feel welcome and was always on the posi- 
tive side. On campus his name could be heard 
from all around.

At a glance, he looked so much 
like someone right out of the 
Beverly Hillbillies with his flannel 
shirts and overalls that one would 
expect him to come up and say, 
"Howdy!" As a matter of fact, 
"howdy" was one of the favorite 
greetings used by Eureka sopho- 
more Jerry Miller, who described 
himself as an "old country kid*" 
Despite his country bumpkin ap- 
pearance, there was more to 
Miller than met the eye-

Although Miller was a cheerful person who 
lways seemed to look at the bright side of things, 
lis life didn't begin that way. Born with hepati- 
is, he required a lot of attention that his mother 
sit she couldn't give to him. When he was just 
hree months old, she gave him to his grand- 
lother to raise. He has lived with his grand- 
lother ever since and despite how other people 
n his situation might have felt, he was not bitter 
t resentful. "I don't see her much," said Miller. 
I might have resented her if grandma hadn't 
ome to get me. She was just a kid and besides, 
fe's too short to hold grudges." 
This attitude seemed to define Miller's philoso- 
hy on life. He always looked on the sunny side 
f things and said, "It's no fun to be depressed. I 
sed to be depressed, but I don't want to be 
nymore. When I am feeling down, I won't show 
: because I don't want to bring anyone else down, 
eeing people smile is one of the reasons why I 
Dok forward to waking up in the morning." 

A jack of all trades, Miller had worked as a 
Dofer, brick layer and comedian and began work- 
ig when he was just twelve years old. That job 
f scraping paint off an old church and then 
^painting it, started his life of odd jobs which 
ventually led to him helping build a high school 
i Eureka. 

In 1985, he started performing comedy during 
mateur night at the Comedy Club and still 
spires to be a comedian. "You're against the 
udience," said Miller. "If you don't have the 
udience on your side, you should just get off the 
:age." His routine was made up of jokes about 
imself and his philosophy was simple. "When 
screwed up, I screwed up. When I hit, I hit." 

It was while he was working at the Comedy 
Hub that it was suggested that he continue his 
ducation. That was difficult for Miller, who 



hadn't been to school in more than 14 years. He 
graduated high school in 1977 and had no desire 
to go to even one more class. "After high school, 
I didn't want to see another class again," said 
Miller. Then in 1990, he came to Butler and 
admitted that it was a whole new experience. 
"It's definitely different. People in college are 
more interested in learning." 

A theater major, Miller became interested in 
acting after his first production in high school, 
Rock n'Rott and has played characters ranging 
from an old man in a wheelchair in Ail the Way 
Home, to a pizza delivery man in A War of Angels. 
Although he was uncertain about his future, he 
was leaning toward a career teaching theater. He 
was involved in more than eight Butler produc- 
tions, either through acting, technical or sound 
work and said, "I don't have to perform in them 
to enjoy them." 

His love of theater was evident in his work and 
he was chosen as the 1991 Greg Bales Award 
recipient. The award went to the most outstand- 
ing Delta Psi Omega member and was chosen by 
all the members of the theater fraternity. Miller, 
who was a first- year member of Delta Psi Omega, 
was surprised by the award and said, "I'm not 
much on receiving awards." 

Besides theater, which took up two hours a day, 
he also spent six to seven hours two days a week 
working for the Media Resource Center and one 
hour a week taping campus events and shows, 
such as In Focus with Mindy Morland. He liked 
it so much that he considered pursuing a job as a 
cameraman at Channel 12 or Channel 10 over 
the summer. 

Whether he was on the stage, in the classroom 
or behind the camera, Miller took with him a 
positive attitude and was always ready to give 
anyone a cheerful "howdy!"

darker skinned person so they ended up painting 
my skin brown. My hair was blond so they had 
to dye it. I had to sing and dance to a fun little 
song called, "Di Tem Wah". It was real exciting 
to be a part of the production. The high school 
singers also took part in the play. I thought it was 
a big deal to act with older students," said Scribner. 

From this point on, he knew he wanted to sing 
but wasn't sure about pursing a career as a dancer. 

He chose Butler because of the excellent music 
program. " 1 never thought I would end up at a 
junior college, but I heard good things about the 
music programs and that it was so much more 
advanced than other music programs across the 
nation. In fact, here you can work on your 
professional aspects of your career. Butler has 
some of the best music teachers in the field," said 
Scribner. 

" I also like the small campus atmosphere. On 
the academic side I like that you can have one on 
one talks with your teachers because the faculty 
is so great. There are a few things that aren't so 
good, but that happens on every campus, " said 
Scribner. 

Scribner could not give enough praise to his 
inspiration, Valerie Lippolt-Mack. "She has in- 
fluenced my life almost like a parent would. She's 
there to encourage me as well as keep me humble. 
She has helped me work on my professional 
career as well as my education. 

"She is the one who got me interested in cho- 
reography and was instrumental in getting my 
first couple of jobs in choreography. I've had jobs 
for Maize High School which included teaching 
different ensembles like Madrigals, select choir, 
and an all guys group," said Scribner. 

Scribner admits that he enjoys teaching high 
school level the best. "I like them because they 
are just more advanced, I guess I shouldn't say 
more advanced, they just catch on quicker than 
younger students do. 

"Also, I think that the kids can relate to me 
better than an instructor who is twenty years 
older than they are. I think they look up to me 
because I'm around their age. I'm only 3-4 years 
older than they are. That's why I like the high 
school level the best," said Scribner. 

He thinks that the arts are like a canvas. "You 
start with something blank and then you add a 
little something as you go along. When you add 
something each time it makes your project more 
creative and that is my job. It's my own creative- 
ness, no one else's, j ust mine . I guess you could say 
it's my own style. 

"You can make something your own and you 
don't have to worry about what anybody else says. 
It doesn't matter if they like it or not. You use 
your own imagination to create something that is 



unique and basically that's what life is . We're 
all individuals that are working for the same 
goal and that goal is to get through life the best 
you can. Mine is through music and choreogra- 
phy," said Scribner. 

Being such a successful entertainer doesn't 
come without its down side. "I have an incred- 
ible responsibility to Headliners. The choreog- 
raphy I do is also a tremendous responsibility. 
Taking on two jobs isn't that easy either. It is 
also hard to juggle between family, social, and 
school life which are humongous responsibili- 
ties. 

"I guess school life is the hardest right now. 
Because I've had some opportunities to go to 
some big places, being in school makes it hard to 
decide between going to school and going for 
those other opportunities. I still want to get 
through school but I also don't want to miss a 
big chance," said Scribner. 

He realized that if he didn't stay up with his 
skills that the competition could be fierce. "It's 
a dog eat dog business that I'm going into. 
Someone is going to come along is better than 
you and is basically wipe you out. You have to 
be who strong and always be improving yourself 
so that you can beat that other person out. 

"I know that some day I won't be a performer 
any more. So, if somebody does come along I 
will have something to fall back on and that's 
why I'm getting my degree," said Scribner. 

As far as future college plans, Scribner is not 
sure about where he will be attending. "What 
Valerie and I are doing is trying to find some 
place where I can be used. I don't want to go to 
a university and just be a nobody. I don't want 
to be any better than anybody else but I just 
want to be able to grow. Because if I'm not going 
to grow somewhere than I'm not going to go 
there. Wherever I go it will be a place that will 
give me the opportunity to grow. 

"Right now we are getting in touch with some 
of Valerie's contacts. Mac Huff, musical ar- 
ranger, and Greg Gilpen, choreographer and 
arranger, are both very good contacts to ask 
what colleges are prominent in the show choir 
field. And to also find out what colleges I would 
benefit from going to. I'm really scared about 
my future because I know I want to go some- 
where but I just don'tknowwhere,"said Scribner. 
Even though he may not sure where he is 
headed, education wise he is straight about his 
goals and dreams in life. "I never have one 
specific goal or dream in life. My dream is to get 
to my next goal. I set a goal and then try to 
achieve it. So far every goal that I have set I 
have accomplished," said Scribner. 

He showed an example of how his philosophy 



works. " Back in eighth grade I decided I wanted 
to go into music forever. When I decided to do 
that I set a goal to get a "one" in state and I did. 
Everytime I set a new goal it is something bigger 
and better. I decide on my goals when the next 
opportunity comes along," said Scribner. 

The biggest break for him yet may have been 
just around the corner. "My goal for now is to get 
to Disney World. AuditionsareinDallasJan. 18, 
and I am very excited. Rich Taylor, Division 
Chairman of Talent Resources for Disney World, 
came here last year for the show choir clinic so we 
have been in contact with him. Chances are 
slim, out of 500 tryout they are only going to pick 
about four. 

"I think what will get me through it success- 
fully is my philosophy of trying to better myself. 
People say you can work until you can't work 
anymore. I don't think that is true. I think that 
you can work to better yourself all of the time, you 
have to, or else someone is going to run over you. 
If something doesn't go the way I want it, I know 
I always have another chance. I'm young, there's 
no sense of me growing up before it's time. 

"To tell you the truth I never thought that I 
would have of accomplished what I've accom- 
plished so far. I'm especially proud of being a 
soloist at Chicago Show Stoppers," said Scribner. 

After graduating from college, Scribner plans 
to be a show stopper himself when he starts 
teaching dance and music as well as being a 
performer 

Even though singing and dancing take up the 
majority of his time, he has many other activities. 

Some of the most precious times that he cher- 
ished was spending time with hisfriends. "I don't 
think there is anything better than spending time 
with friends and family. You can tell them when 
you're sad or when you' re happy. That's where all 
of your memories come from. It's good to know 
that I have people that will always be there for 
me," said. 

Scribner admits candidly that he was a good 
friend to have. "People can trust me because I'm 
a people person. I think my personality is the best 
trait about me. I will always go out of my way to 
make a person feel good. I can relate to everybody 
and I try to make situations funny," said Scribner. 
He inherited most of his performing talents 
through his musical minded family. "My father, 
mother, and grandmother sang for a gospel radio 
show in Texas. They did this right after they got 
married and continued for over a year. My dad 
has always sung but he didn't want to pursue a 
career in it," said Scribner. 

Scribner was bom in Austin, Texas, and lived 
there for six years. Then his family moved to 
Belle Plaine, Kansas, and has lived there ever 



since.

A whirlwind whipped through a 
Hutchinson hospital on Jan. 4, 
1961, when Tony Weber, Butler's 
director of Cooperative Educa- 
tion, was born. 

Since day one Weber was con- 
stantly on the go. He kept busy 
working at Butler during the day 
and working for his construction 
business on evenings and week- 
ends; he also managed to keep a 
family together.

Growing up in southern Mead County, the 
same county that his ancestors settled, Weber 
learned responsibility. The Weber family farm 
had hogs, cattle, and dryland wheat. His father 
wasa third generation farmer on diat farm. Weber 
took his first job at age of ten working on a ranch 
for his neighbor. For two years he drove a tractor, 
worked catde, rode horses, hauledhay , and tended 
livestock. 

He used his experience on the farm to find work 
on other farms and ranches until he went to 
college. 

Growing up on the farm meant hard work for 
Weber. "It was isolated, very isolated When you 
spend 10-12 hours a day on a tractor it can be very 
tiring, and it was also very tough economically, " 
said Weber. 

His mother and father raised three boys on the 
farm. Weber has an older brother and a younger 
brother. "We worked, played, and fought a lot," 
said Weber. His parents also cared for three foster 
children while he was growing up. 

"Having foster kids wasn't so pleasant when I 
was a kid but when I got into high school I was 
able to look at it more objectively," said Weber. 
His parents instilled Christian values on the 
children. "The church left the biggest impression 
on my life. It gave me a solid foundation and a 
specific direction in my life as an adolescent and 
carried on through my adult life," said Weber. 

After graduating from Fowler High School in 
1979 he attended Friends University to play 
football. After playing football for two years he 
realized he needed an education and that football 
was just a short-term goal. He then decided to 
change his degree to religion and philosophy. 

He received a BA from Friends University in 
religion and philosophy. "After graduating from 
Friends I went into commercial and residential 
development for three years. Then I decided to 
do something more people oriented. I felt I could 
serve people best in an educational setting. I 
chose to pursue a state certification in order to 
teach," said Weber. 

He then went to The Wichita State University 
and received a bachelors degree in Industrial 
Technology. This degree allowed him to teach a 
number of courses including principles of tech- 
nology, drafting, photography, and plastics. 

While going through eight years of schooling at 
two different universities, he also attended Butler 
to pick up some needed credit hours. Currently 
he is working on a masters degree at Kansas State 
University. 

Weber joined the force at Butler in January 
1990. He heard through the WSU Department 
of Industrial Technology that there was only one 
opening for a technical recruiter in all of Kansas 
and it happened to be at Butler. He decided to 
apply for the job and received a call, not too long 



after, tellinghimthathewas the man chosen for 
the job. "I was really excited about getting the 
position and being a part of an institution with 
a good reputation," said Weber. 

After Weber spent nine months in recruiting, 
Butler received the Title VIII funding for coop- 
erative education and so another position was 
waiting to be filled. Weber applied for that job 
and got it. 

Weber was especially proud of co-op educa- 
tion and believed that it had many benefits. 
"Co-op education enhances the classroom ex- 
perience by linking theory to practical experi- 
ence. The work component allows the student 
to assess the information being presented in the 
classroom and reality test it in the work place. 
The result is a better and more focused educa- 
tion," said Weber. 

He said, "Butler students earn over $ 100,000 
collectively on an annual basis. These funds 
contribute to the expense of higher education 
and help reduce debt related to student loans. 
Co-op students are often offered permanent 
employment as a result of the experience di- 
rectly related to their field. 

"Re-employability is higher, as well as long 
term earnings, compared to non co-ops. This 
results in higher success rates in a tough job 
market. Co-op is a major factor in encouraging 
first-generation college students to pursue a 
college degree. The academic and life-skill 
support given to co-op students yields lifetime 
benefits." 

The most rewarding part of his job was to 
watch students become successful. 

While Weber was in school he would often 
ask himself, "Why am I having to learn this 
subject and go through this excercise?" He 
found it difficult to concentrate and achieve 
academically because of his perception that 
education had no application. 

"Many students have found education to be 
relevant by the practical application of knowl- 
edge through cooperative education and simi- 
lar internship programs. Cooperative educa- 
tion ties classroom theory to on-the-job real life 
experience. 

"The positive results can be seen in the re- 
search conducted diat reflects higher grade 
point average, higher retention rates, and the 
increased number of first-generation students 
attending college as a result of cooperative 
education on a national level," said Weber. 

As a Buder alumnus, Weber had many ideas 
about why the college had such success with 
students. 

"I can attest to the fact that if it were not for 
the philosophy that students should be set up to 
succeed and not to fail, many students, includ- 
ing myself, would not have succeeded in higher 



education. Butler has the reputation as an all- 
inclusive educational institution that prides it- 
self on taking students from where they are and 
setting them up for success. 
"This characteristic of Butler has attracted many 
students who would not have attempted higher 
education, or who might otherwise be miserable 
at other institutions. The personal touch of 
Butler is a major drawing card for students, "said 
Weber. 

He also gave a lot of credit to the instructors. 
"They are an essential part of the institution. The 
faculty are high quality and are hired to teach, not 
to do research. Community colleges focus on 
meeting community needs and, therefore, focus 
more on instruction, leaving the major research 
to the four-year schools," said Weber. 

He said that Butler was also cost effective and 
its location made education accessible to stu- 
dents who may not otherwise be in a geographic 
position to attend college. 

Weber said that if he had a chance do the 
college scene all over again he would do a couple 
of things differently. "I would have been more 
diligent about seeking more practical experience 
in order to do some relevant career assessment 
and paid more attention to math and language 
skills. 

"I would also go to work for a couple of years 
before college and explore different types of ca- 
reer opportunities." 

Some of Weber's hobbies included waterskiing, 
playing basketball, and watching movies with his 
family. He also considered his part-time business 
a hobby because he enjoyed doing it. 

For six years he had been the president of TWI 
Inc., which specialized in home maintenance 
and holiday design services. Weber did remodel- 
ing on his own home as well as others. He also 
hung Christmas lights at various places, saying 
that uhis was one of his favorite hobbies. 

Weber became interested in construction at a 
young age. "I started tinkering when I was a kid 
and my father always encouraged me to explore 
and create new things. One irony for me, person- 
ally, is that I felt that I didn't have any limitations 
in what I built. This characteristic has allowed 
me to take many risks that turned out great," said 
Weber. 

As busy as he was, he still managed to keep a 
family together. "It's very difficult in the sense 
that it puts a lot of pressure on all of the family to 
do more regarding everything from household 
chores to taking care of business," said Weber. 

Weber lives out in the country with his wife, 
Jan, and his daughter, Taylor. 

Although he enjoyed living in the beautiful 
countryside of eastern Kansas he remembers a 
couple of things that he misses about western 
Kansas. "I miss the sunsets and the people."

The original 
feminazi 

In her leisure time Wahto enjoyed lis- 
tening to Rock 'n Roll, Classical, or Blue- 
grass. "I've always liked the Doors and I 
like Guns 'n Roses and Eric Clapton a lot, 
too. New Grass Revival is one of my 
favorite groups, but they broke up. They 
are a mixture of Bluegrass and Rock 'n 
Roll," said Wahto. 

She traveled whenever she got the 
chance. "I love visiting New York City 
because it is so different from Kansas. I 
also love Gulf Shore, Ala. It is on the 
Gulf of Mexico. The ocean and the sand 
are beautiful. I would live there if I 
could," said Wahto. 

If a person were to catch her in her 
casual mode she wore blue jeans, a T- 
shirt, and tennis shoes. She spruced up at 
school in dresses and slacks. 

Her favorite sport to watch was hockey, 
"no contest there." 

She loved to eat ice cream and choco- 
late, but tried not to on a routine basis. 
He favorite foods were Chinese and 
Cheese Manicotta from Old Mill. 

Wahto was a Democrat and has been 
since she was old enough to vote even 
though she comes from a republican fam- 
ily. They are all Democrats now. 

She expressed her feeling about Repub- 
lican Rush Limbaugh. "I don't watch him 
because I don't think it's funny to deni- 
grate powerless people. He calls people 
who are trying improve things for women 
and children feminazis. My understand- 
ing of him is that he doesn't think homo- 
sexuals should be protected from hate 
crimes. He doesn't think minorites and 
women need job protection even though 
both groups find it difficult to gain the 
success white males take for granted in 
the working world. I don't want to sup- 
port his show by watching or listening to 
him because I think he is a hateful per- 



son. 



Unlike Limbaugh who denigrates 
women and minorities, Wahto works to 
improve their status. Her good friend 
Jane Watkins, English instructor felt she 
wouldbe a good lawyer. "She 1 ikes to take 
care of everybody and she knows her 
rights. She knows the laws that protect 
people's rights," said Watkins.

visit when she is at her parents. "Interestingly 
enough I am still in awe of him and call him Mr. 
Johnson," said Wahto. 

Wahto was born and raised in Baxter Springs 
and moved to Springfield, Mo. to attend Drury 
College. She married a year later and as a result 
her school plans were delayed. "We moved about 
every year and I took classes every place we were. 
The longest we stayed in one place was the five 
years we spent in Decatur, Mich. I loved it there 
because it was such a good place for kids. I went 
to school in the morning and then I would pick up 
die kids. We would go to Lake of Woods and I 
would study while die kids would swim," said 
Wahto. 

She has three children, Curt, Chris, and Geoff 
Bohling and two grandchildren who are her prized 
possessions. Curt lives in Falls Church, Va., and 
he and his wife work in Washington D.C. Chris 
and his wife live in New York, while Geoff and his 
wife and two children live in Lawrence. All of 
her children are Kansas University graduates. 

"They are the cutest, smartest, little children 
that ever lived. They are a lot of fun and I wish 
I had more," said Wahto of her grandchildren. 

After attending many colleges and universities, 
she eventually acquired her degree at Western 
Michigan University. She taught in a country 
school of 20 students during her sophomore year. 
She then graduated and substitute taught but did 
not enjoy that. Later on, she received a masters 
in English at Pittsburg State and a Master of Fine 
Arts at Wichita State University for creative 
writing. 

"When I first started school I was a music major, 
but I hated the practice. I was doing well in my 
literature classes , so I changed my major," said 
Wahto. 

The first job she considered as a real job was 
teaching journalism for nine years in Winfield. 
She then taught at Udall High School. During 
that time a part-time English instructor position 
at Butler came up. She juggled both jobs for a 
year, then a full-time position at Butler appeared. 
She applied and got it. 

"Larry Patton called me and told me I was hired. 
I was so happy because I really wanted the job. 
This is my seventh year full-time," said Wahto. 
She taught Short Story, English Composition I, 
English Composition II, Fundamentals of En- 
glish, Women in Literature, and yearbook. She 
was a yearbook advisor 1974-83 then started back 
up in 1989 at Butler. 

Her hobbies vary from writing poetry and swim- 
ming, to reading, and walking her dogs. Her 
poems have beenprintedinCoilage, Caprice, City 
Life, Mikrokosmos, AID Review , and Quill. She 
won prizes ranging from $25-$ 100 from Ameri- 
can Academy of Poets and Kansas Voices for her 
work. 



Wahto and Jane Watkins, English instructor, 
have been good friends for five years and enjoy 
exercising together. "We try to eat ice cream four 
times a week and swim three times a week. We 
always find time for ice cream," said Watkins. 

Another friend of Wahto's, Dave Kratzer, jour- 
nalism instructor, believes she is a reliable per- 
son. "You know you can believe what she says. 
She's reliable, a leader, and people seek her out to 
have her involved in things," said Kratzer. 

She was also active in Kansas-National Educa- 
tion Association, and has been since she was a 
student teacher in 1973. The Association makes 
sure teachers' rights are not violated. They also 
lobby the legislature for teachers' pay and right 
issues. Two years ago she was the local president 
and last year she was the chief negotiator. Kevin 
Belt is now the president. "Even though I am not 
an officer, I try to help out any chance I can," said 
Wahto. 

Last year, the teacher negotiation format 
changed to win-win negotiations which found 
areas of agreement and not conlict. "It's hard for 
me to adjust to that even though it's less stressful 
in the long run," said Wahto. 

Another interest involves supporting the right 
for a woman to choose. "I'm more politically ac- 
tive than I used to be. Now that my kids are 
grown up and gone, I have more time. I go to the 
women's clinic three days a week. My major 
function is to help patients get in without being 
harassed. 

"I'm a member of Freedom of Choice Action 
League. It's a small group, but we put out a good 
newsletter. A lot of people don't agree with my 
stand, but I grew up in a time when women were 
dying from illegal abortions. I want to make sure 
that doesn't happen again. I first got involved 
when Operation Rescue came here. FOCAL 
members are confrontative and aren't quiet. We 
get in the antis' faces, because they get in ours," 
said Wahto. She was also a member of National 
Organization for Women and Pro-Choice Ac- 
tion League. 

What she found interesting was that nobody she 
was in contact with bothered her about her pro- 
choice stance. She expected more confrontation 
over it, but if a student brought it up in class she 
tried to avoid the topic. "I don't know why I don't 
get more flack, but I'm happy about that. I don't 
impose my opinions on students, "said Wahto. 

Recently, Wahto was appointed to the Com- 
mission on the Status of Women, an arm of The 
Wichita City Council. They concern them- 
selves with womens issues.. Lastyear they had an 
essay contest for grade school students, who wrote 
about women who had influenced them. 

Her interests are numerous and she is a go- 
getter. She's a mother, she's an activist, she's a 
writer, and she's a friend.

Dollege in Iowa. He tossed majors from pre-med 
o pre-law and decided on a degree in anthropol- 
)gy. He gained experience in his field of study 
vhen he dug Pueblo ruins near Cortez, Colo., his 
unior and senior year. He enjoyed the digs but 
bund little money in it. He decided to return 
lome and work on the ranch. 

"College taught me how to learn. College was 
he first step in die process of learning how to ask 
he right questions," said Ferrell. 

"It was always assumed at our house that we'd 
ill go to college. It was just something we were 
ill going to do. I feel like education is 'pay me 
low or pay me later.' We either can invest in 
iducation now or we'll be behind later. To me it 
s one of those things that must be done in our 
ociety. My father always made sure we'd all 
lave a good education," said Ferrell. 

Being the youngest of four, Ferrell was spoiled 
>y his three older sisters. They all live out of state, 
ileanor lives in Montana and has two children, 
^nne lives in Denver and has two children, also. 
Jue is a doctor in Texas and has three children. 
Ul of his nieces and nephews are in high school, 
n college, or out of college. They are all able to 
ee each other at least once a year. 

Keeping busy with the ranch, Ferrell found it 
lifficult to spend time with his family. He and his 
vife Deborah have two children, Jacob, 7, and 
.auren, 4. Deborah is a part-time attorney and 
ivjrse and worked three to four days a week. He 
vorked a minimum of 60 hours a week and said 
le would give anything for a boring day. "There 
ire a lot of events I would love to go to, but I don' t 
lave time. Every other weekend my family and 

try to go somewhere like the zoo, Renaissance 
; estival, or a movie," said Ferrell. 
Ferrell and his wife Deborah have been married 
ince 1982. They met at a bar named Jimmy's 
igger in Kansas City and a mutual friend intro- 
luced them. She was the head nurse at the Kansas 
Jniversity Medical Center. They have been 
narried for ten years. 

A typical day consisted of getting the children 
eady for school in the morning and Jacob on the 
his. Lauren sometimes went with Ferrell to stay 
vith his mother, who lives on the ranch, or with a 
>abysitter whom Deborah had arranged for. Gen- 
rally, he had every other weekend off, but it 
lidn't always work out that way. "When you are 
elf-employed you do what you got to do. You 
lave to get the job done. Jerry Russell is co- 
nanager of the ranch and has been getting off at 
> p.m. the last four days," said Ferrell. 

Ferrell, on one of his cattle feedings, drove 
hrough different sectioned-off areas of cattle, 
Iriving ahead of the cattle, then letting food 
upplement fall out. The cattle stampeded toward 
he food, growling stomachs and all. They circled 
iround the truck in what Ferrell called a "feeding 



frenzy." "They wait around the truck like sharks 
circling their prey before they kill," said Ferrell. 

The number one job on the ranch was main- 
taining a healthy standard of grass. "We drop a 
half a ton of food supplement every day to the 
big group of cattle during the cold months. In 
the summer they feed off the ground, but in the 
wintertime the grass is dormant so we have to 
give them the supplement. The whole operation 
is geared off grass and to get the most out of it," 
said Ferrell. 

He watched the cattle eat and when they 
couldn't find all the food, he made a cattle call. 
They looked around in a daze then found the 
food. "They have a short memory. If they were 
smart they'd be in the truck and we'd be out 
there," said Ferrell. 

In his busy schedule he finds lime to play the 
guitar and banjo. "I like music. I listen to old 
time cowboy songs, bluegrass, and classical," 
said Ferrell. 

Ferrell is a jack of all trades. He's the general 
manager, booker, and veterinarian. Half of his 
time went toward feeding livestock, fixing 
fences, plumbing, fixing barns, and doctoring 
cows. He prefers working with catUe and horses 
rather than cars and trucks. "If it doesn't bleed 
I don't get along with it," said Ferrell. 

Ferrell has been a trustee for a year and a half 
and considers his four-year term a privilege. 
The job has been a learning experience, even 
though he didn't realize the amount of work 
involved. "It was much more difficult than I 
thought it would be. It could be a full-time job. 
Since the board is the governing body of the 
college, Dr. Cox is obliged to keep us informed 
of everything that is going on. I would estimate 
that I receive 20 pounds of information between 
each meeting. 

"My dad was really involved in the late '70s 
when Butler changed from a junior college to a 
community college. That was when the Out- 
reach programs had begun. In 1989, 1 attended 
Leadership Butler. I felt like I was not giving 
my share as far as community service was 
concerned. Several people suggested that I run 
for the board. I did and I won. I felt that rather 
than sitting in the country and throwing stones at 
those who were involved I needed to do some- 
thing," said Ferrell. 

Ferrell believes that improving faculty and 
administrative relations, managing growth, and 
maintaining autonomy from state controls are 
the three most important issues at the school. 
The latter of the three is a concern of his. "This 
is a big concern, especially with the financial 
success of the school. Local control gives the 
school flexibility. For instance, a course can be 
added within 30 days if needed. Butler will go 
the way of the dinosaur if state control comes in. 



"The school provides a quality product and 
strives to provide a good education. Students and 
faculty at community colleges are close. Com- 
munity colleges are more in touch with what's 

going on in the real world, while four-year 
schools are based more on what's in books rather 
than reality." 

Every board meeting Ferrel was impressed once 
again with the school. He considered the staff, 
administrators, and faculty all "top notch." 

He balanced many different involvements in 
his life; he's a family man, board member, and 
rancher. Most of his time was spent wearing a 
cowboy hat and boots and working beneath the 
western skies where there was plenty of elbow 
room. He was not afraid of a hard day's work. 
Nothing could break his stride'. 



"My dad was really in- 
volved in the late 4 70s 
when Butler changed 
from a junior college to 
a community college. 



That was when the Out- 



reach programs had be- 
gun. In 1989 I attended 
Leadership Butler. I felt 
like I was not giving my 



share as far as commu- 



nity service was con- 



cerned.'

From Phi Theta Kappa and the 

Honor's Program to bridge jumping 
and auditions for Americas Funniest 
People, Butler students proved they 
could be serious about their educa- 
tion and have a little fun, too. 

Students excelled in sports (the 
volleyball team placed third in the 
Western Division and finished the 
season 25-18), academics (students 
looking for an extra challenge found 
it through the Honor's Program) 
and service (Headliners donated 
food, clothing and toys to the El 
Dorado Safe House, a shelter for 
battered women and their children. ) 
Although the out-of-control foot- 
ball team, the ever-changing Stu- 
dent Senate, and the lack of park- 
ing space showered Butler with 
negative publicity, a 16 percent in- 
crease in enrollment, additions to 
the Fine Arts and Agriculture fa- 
cilities, and a new Dean of Stu- 
dents, told the true story of Butler 
and its expanding campus. 

A wide range of classes, diverse 
personalities from around the world, 
triumphant victories and frustrat- 
ing defeats proved that the day in 
the life of a Butler student was more 
than ordinary. And that was. . .
