Welcome to a memory. 

Presented on the following pages is a "group memory," covering what we felt was important and special about this year at 
UMass. The difficulty in doing this is self-evident. Our presentation represents an academic year in photographs and 
prose, a year which touched the lives of over 20 ,000 students here, and affected each in a different way. We cannot hope 
to recapture these individual experiences effectively for each person, hut we have strived to present an overall picture of the 
year, capturing the atmosphere of the campus and the mood of the students. We feel the mood of this campus during this 
year was calm, academically oriented, and basically conservative, with many students favoring the taditional ideals. 
It Was not "the year of anything in particular. It was not a time which could be simply labeled and thus filed for future 
reference. If we could judge from outward appearances, it seemed that most students were involved in doing what was 
personally fulfilling and important. There was no single all-encompassing cause in which the majority actively participated. 

And thus, we feel it was a year of quiet growth and learning. We present our "memory" in a variety of contexts. While still 
covering many of the taditional aspects of university life (because they are omnipresent and we felt the book would be 
incomplete without them) , we've added a few things we haven't covered before . . . things we all kpow exist here, but haven't 
seen in the INDEX. We've tried to approach things from afresh perspective, which was no simple task considering that 
most things concerning the university have been approached and covered to death. 

We've worked hard to create a publication you would appreciate, think about, and be proud of. Only time will judge our 
success . If you pull this INDEX off the shelf in ten or 20 years , dust it off, look through it and remember what this year 
was Uk'^ for you personally — if it sparks your own recollections, we will have realized our goal. If you see something new in 
this hook ^<^ch time you look Q' '^ ^^ ^U have accomplished something special. And that's what we're hoping for.

Leaving home, or any type of previous lifestyle in order to pursue an academic 
career is a singular step in most of our lives. There is really no other experience 
it can be compared to - it's not like going away to get married or start a new 
job, it's not as disciplined in many ways as entering the service, it is not like 
traveling across the country seeking dreams and new ideals. It is an experience 
fraught with anxiety and indecision for many even before the actual process of 
education at the university or college level begins. The exams, the applications, 
the recomendations, the financial worries, the haunting question of, "Did I make 
the right decision after all?" 

Alright, so you've decided to join the ranks at the University of Massachusetts, 
along with thousands of other students. You have come armed with your favorite 
books, stationary, three pillows, your stereo and popcorn popper. And you are 
ready to handle any battle Whitmore or OSCAR are likely to challenge you 
to - even straightening out your schedule and getting at least one of the courses 
you want. You will soon learn that a fine education may be acquired at UMass, 
but it will take some battles and a lot of effort on your part as a student. There 
is so much here, so many people, that sorting out interests and priorities, as well 
as sifting through all the information available as well as all the red tape could 
easily become a full-time job. A first-year student here has a great deal of 
adjusting to do in the first few weeks of the semester. One of the first, and most 
anxiety-ridden battles to handle is finding out where he/she will be required to 
live, and with whom the privilege of having a room on campus is to be shared, 
at least until there is enough time to find out if there is compatibility. Or not. 
Then there will be other types of battles - things like trying to get an elevator 
from the 22nd fioor of a tower at 7:55 a.m., trying to get a washing machine, 
and trying to sleep at night are some of the aggravations of campus life, and 
there are many others. These make up the spice of university life. These are the 
hassles which one gives little serious thought or action to, while the others are 
the UMass Administrative Hassles, the closest thing the university has to real- 
life. Fighting such battles provides an education in itself. There is not sufficent 
space here in which to accurately outline these situations, however, if you've been 
at UMass long enough to receive an INDEX, then surely you have experienced 
at least one such painful encounter. 

Getting adjusted to UMass, after the first weeks of trauma, can actually be a 
pleasant affair. The students, for the most part, exude friendship and warmth 
and are quite used to giving directions to Marshall Hall, and other obscure 
locations on campus. Autumn is beautiful (except for the torrential rains) and 
there is really no better area in which to enjoy an outdoor hike, football or 
soccer, or a color photo session. 

There are many discoveries to be made at UMass, many fine people to meet, 
and learn from, and be friends with. There are many good experiences to be had. 
Once you have gotten the feel of the campus, and have evaluated the situation, 
you will be on your way to enjoying the learning life at UMass. If you have been 
here for a few years, you will find yourself wondering where all the time has 
gone, and did you really live through it all? And you will promise yourself that 
you will savor your last crisp, colorful fall here, and you'll buy the program at 
the Homecoming game, and find yourself getting sentimental over your Pub mug 
- for these are the times, corny as it sounds - which have helped shape the rest 
of your adult life. You have been through the breakaway years, developed your 
own style, and lived that special kind of life. And now it is time to seek a new 
dimension.

Southwest Security Tightened 



One of the fall semester's recur- 
ring news events revolved around the 
Southwest living area, one of the 
country's most densely populated liv- 
ing quarters, containing numerous 
low-rise dormitories and five 22-story 
towers. Residents of the area were 
plagued by several incidents concern- 
ing objects being thrown from the 
towers. 

Steven Rodman was hit on the 
head by a roll of toilet paper tossed 
from a window of John F. Kennedy 
tower on Sept. 16. Rodman was mo- 
mentarily knocked unconscious and 
spent three days in the University In- 
firmary under precautionary mea- 
sures. 

Brian Turner, who had been ac- 
cused of hitting Rodman with the ob- 
ject was later acquitted on the 
charge. 

There were numerous incidents of 
a similar nature during the beginning 
of the semester. 

Another student was accused of 
throwing a weight out of his tower 
window while he was adjusting the 
screen on the window. He was spotted 
by a security man around the time a 
weight had crushed the roof of a car 
parked below his dormitory. The stu- 
dent was later found to be innocent. 

On Sept. 27, David McDonough 
was suspended from the university for 
allegedly throwing a cinderblock out 



of the ninth fioor lounge of Washing- 
ton tower, in the early morning hours 
of Sept. 11. Witnesses said McDon- 
ough had been involved in a poker 
game on the morning of the incident 
and angered at having lost money in 



the game, threw the block out of the 
window. 

Stories of the Southwest incidents 
were carried in local newspapers as 
well as the Boston Globe. University 



officials said screens would be placed 
on tower windows to alleviate this 
hazard and issued strong warnings to 
the residents of the area, saying such 
misconduct would result in suspen- 
sion and criminal charges. 




Looking deceptively calm in this picture, Southwest was a dangerous place to live in early 
September. 




School started, and along with it, the books came out. From any 
angle, some things-basically never change. 



''Earthfoods'' Offers 
Alternative Menus 



Tostados, gazpacho, cold cucum- 
ber soup and pero may not sound like 
the typical college lunch, yet Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts students began 
forking up such meals Sept. 13. 

They were eating at Earth Foods, 
a student-run, vegetarian restaurant 
in the Commonwealth Room of the 
UMass Student Union Building. 

Earth Foods, which has expanded 
in its second semester of existence, 
unlike two other Campus Center eat- 
ing places, the Hatchct-and-Pipe and 
the Campus Center Coffee Shop, is a 
non-profit organization staffed en- 
tirely by students and all meals there 
are homemade, 

A complete hot meal such as piz- 
za, onion soup, garden salad, and lea 
costs less than $2. 

"We have a responsibility to give 
students a decent meal they can af- 
ford every day," said Bill Sprague of 
Earth Foods. 



Malcolm Quint, an original 
founder, said he fought for eight 
months to persuade university offi- 
cials to allow a vegetarian restaurant 
on campus. 

"There were a lot of people want- 
ing and needing vegetarian food and 
we had the resources to have the res- 
taurant," Quint said. 

After receiving a $1,700 grant 
from the Student Government Asso- 
ciation, Quint was awarded the Stu- 
dent Union space for Earth Foods 
which opened May, 1976. 

"We're always adding lo our 
menus. And once a week, there will 
be an ethnic dinner, you know, Mexi- 
can, German, Italian meals," said 
Joanne Fillatti, menu planner. 

No meat or fish and only small 
amounts of dairy products arc used in 
Earth Foods meals. 




Students enjoy the use of the Music Room on campus. The facility was under consideration as a possible location for a 
commercial bank but students banded together to keep it intact. The Administration denied the room was a potential location 
for a commercial enterprise. 

Students Oppose Commercial Bank 



Petitioners attempting to block 
possible efforts to relocate the music 
room and study lounge on the Cam- 
pus Center concourse collected over 
500 signatures in early October, 
while university administrators de- 
nied they were considering the loca- 
tion as a place for a commercial 
bank. 

Chancellor Randolph W. Bro- 
mery, who had formerly denied hav- 
ing considered the spot for a bank 
location said bids were sent out two 
years ago, and several banks had sub- 
mitted bids. He said he believed the 
banks considered the bids expired 
and the project would have to be re- 
bid. He repeated his previous state- 
ment saying there were no current 
plans to construct a bank in the Cam- 
pus Center. 

The music room space was one of 
several locations under consideration 

Bromery, Wood 
visit Hokkaido 

On Sept. 10, UMass President 
Robert C. Wood and Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery embarked on 
a two week gift-bearing mission to 
Japan. 

The two administrators and John 
Maki of the UMass political science 
department met with Japanese edu- 
cators at Hokkaido University for 
three days in celebration of the cen- 
tury-old educational exchange pro- 
gram between the two schools. 

The relationship between the uni- 
versities goes back to 1876 when Wil- 
liam S. Clark, then president of Mas- 
sachusetts Agricultural College (now 
UMass), went to Hokkaido at the in- 
vitation of the Japanese government 
to help establish an agricultural col- 
lege there. One of Clark's students 
later became president of Sapporo 
Agricultural College (now Hok- 
kaido), where he furthered Clark's 
ideas. 

During the war years, ties with 
Hokkaido were broken, but in 1958 
UMass was awarded an Aid for In- 
ternational Development Grant 
which went toward re-establishing 
the relationship. 



to accomodate an expanded Cashier's 
Office. The former Cashier's Office 
was closed down later in the year, due 
to insufficient space for proper secu- 
rity measures. This left the Campus 
Center and the Student Union with- 
out such an office. 

Michael Pill, member of the 
Campus Center Board of Governors 
(BOG) said, "In the short run, they 
(the administrators) are telling the 
truth about not putting in a bank. In 
the long run, they're lying through 
their teeth." 



Pill, a lawyer, added, "I agree 
with Chancellor Bromery that the 
present bank bids are invalid." He 
felt, however, that the bank issue was 
far from dead. 

Stuart Belkin, co-toordinator of 
the Union of Student Employees, was 
opposed to any efforts to move the 
music room and lounge, and through 
the petition attempted to halt any 
iuch action. 

Campus Center Director, Dean 
William F. Field, said "Idid not want 



a bank. I tried to argue this thing 
through. I'd be delighted if the chan- 
cellor formally canceled the bids." 

Field, saying he was sick and tired 
of the whole issue, added, "It's mostly 
a matter of credability," as to wheth- 
er or not students want to believe the 
administrators are trying to slip a 
bank into the Campus Center. 

Bromery made a similar .state- 
ment saying, "If anyone will not be- 
lieve in my integrity, they can go take 
a leap." 



Infirmary Hit by Student Allegations 



NORTHAMPTON - Allegations 
were received by the Hampshire 
County district attorney's office late 
in September against some UMass 
Health Services employees for "il- 
legal and improper conduct," as 
termed by UMass students involved 
with the Student Advisory Board 
which submitted the complaint. 

According to a statement issued 
to the press after the group of stu- 



dents met with a staff member of the 
district attorney's office, the com- 
plaint dealt primarily with a sup- 
posed conflict of interest existing in 
hiring, promotions, competitive bid- 
ding, and the awarding of overtime 
pay and what the group termed "pos- 
sible corrupt gifts" made to some em- 
ployees at the Health Center. 

District Attorney John M. Calla- 
han was not there to receive the alle-

vices with "illegal and improper conduct" by employees. 



gations personally but said in a tele- 
phone interview the following day 
that his office would look mto the 
matter out of due process, but added, 
"there probably isn't anything in it." 

Barry W. Averill, director of 
Health Services, and president of the 
National College Health Association, 
said the accusations "are categorical- 
ly untrue" and that the statement 
contained only "vague accusations." 

Averill said, "I've done nothing, 
nor has anybody on my staff. Every- 
thing we have ever done has been in 
accordance with proper University 
channels, that's for sure." 

James H. Starr, a student Legal 
Services Office attorney who helped 
the students prepare the official 
statement said that "tens of thou- 
sands of dollars over a course or three 
to four years" were involved in ques- 
tionable purchases of services and 
supplies. 

Michael R. Federow, Graduate 
Student Senate president, said the 
possibility of kickbacks and bribes ex- 
isted in the purchasing of contractual 
services. 

Averill said the only instances 
when supplies might be purchased 
without following a bidding proce- 
dure would be if an instrument or 
pharmeceutical was needed immedi- 
ately. 

He said he had checked with his 
business people and "was not aware 
of anybody who's received any gifts. 
That's ridiculous." 



Swine Flu Vaccine 
Proves Controversial 



In an effort to circumvent a possi- 
ble outbreak of "swine flu" which 
was predicted for the winter of 1 976, 
The Center for Disease Control 
(CDC), a branch of the U.S. Public 
Health Service, ran a program aimed 
at innoculating over 200 million 
Americans against the disease. 

All did not run smoothly, howev- 
er, as a number of deaths reported in 
October were linked with the vaccine. 
The victims died shortly after being 
innoculated. 

Dr. J. Donald Millar of the CDC 
in Washington said, "There is no evi- 
dence that these deaths were caused 
by the vaccine." 

Most of the victims nationwide 
died of heart attacks, which field 
studies in Pittsburgh indicated may 
have been caused by stress. 

President Ford expressed confi- 
dence in the program by being inno- 
culated. He said, "I believe that it is 
necessary for every one of 2 1 5 million 
Americans." 

The Ford Administration com- 
mitted itself early in 1 976 to spending 
$135 million to avoid a flu epidemic 
like the one in 1918-1920 in which, 
approximately 20 million people died 
worldwide. 



Many states suspended their inno- 
culation programs after learning of 
the deaths. 

At UMass, Health Officials were 
being educated on the upcoming in- 
noculation clinic for the swine and 
victoria flu vaccine, as news reports 
indicated the death toll for recently 
injected persons had risen to 38. 

According to Arthur Hyman, 
head administrative assistant at the 
infirmary, UMass would go ahead 
with the scheduled clinic but would 
innoculate only those in the UMass 
community who are 18 or over, those 
who have chronic illnesses, and any- 
one over 65 who requested it. When 
asked what his feelings were on the 
death reports he said, "no comment." 

Approximately 25 health services 
employees worked at the Oct. 25 clin- 
ic. Before receiving an innoculation, 
participants were required to read an 
information sheet and sign a consent 
form. The information sheet gave a 
brief history of the disease, the symp- 
toms of it, the vaccine which was to 
be used, the possible side effects, and 
several precautions.

program held at UMass. 



JFK Memorial Funds 
Discovered Unusec 



In mid-September it was discov- 
ered that while the JFK Memorial 
Reading Room in the UMass library 
contained only 85 books, there was 
over $16,000 in an interest-bearing 
account at the New Bedford Institu- 
tion for Savings in the name of the 
John F. Kennedy Memorial Fund. 

This was found by Acting Student 
Senate Treasurer Thomas Kerrins 
when he found the file on the fund 
and proceeded to investigate. 

According to Kerrins, the fund 
was started when the Student Senate 
"adopted the idea of money to be set 
aside for the purchase of books for 
the JFK Memorial Reading Room." 

The establishment of the fund 
was just one result of the formation of 
the Committee for a John F. Kenne- 
dy Memorial Service by the Faculty 
Senate late in 1963, shortly after the 



assassination of the late President. 

The committee engineered a Fine 
Arts Festival dedicated to Kennedy 
and considered plans for having a 
sculpture done and holding a concert 
in Curry Hicks Cage, among other 
things. It is unclear from the file, 
however, if anything other than the 
festival ever took place. 

Kerrins said the senate had been 
allocating $1,000 annually for the 
fund until 1971. In May of 1970. the 
money was transferred from an ac- 
count in the Recognized Student Or- 
ganization office to an interest-bear- 
ing account. 

Kerrins said it seemed that the 
fund was simply forgotten, and added 
he intended to initiate a committee to 
deal with purchasing books for the 
reading room in order to utilize the 
money in the memorial fund.

Mao Tse-Tung 
Dies in Peking; 
China Mourns 



HONG KONG - Chinese Com- 
munist Party Chairman Mao Tse- 
Tung died in Peking on Sept. 9, at 
age 82, initiating a power struggle for 
leadership of his people. 

After reports of the arrest of 
Mao's widow, Chiang Ching, for 
plotting to seize power, China ap- 
pointed Hua Kuo-feng, former Pre- 
mier, as new chairman. 

Chiang and three other high offi- 
cials, allegedly from the radical, ul- 
traleftist branch of the Communist 
Party known as the "Shanghai-Ma- 
fia" were reportedly arrested during 
Hua's surge to power. 

There was speculation that Hua's 
accession to power and the radical 
purge against Chiang could lead to a 
shift in China's policies. 

U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. 
Kissinger, however, expressed hope 
that the United States and China 
would continue on a parallel course of 
cautious friendship. 

In the wake of Mao's death, au- 
thorities organized an unprecedented 
mass memorial service on Sept. 18 in 
the capital's huge Tien An Men Gate 
of Heavenly Peace Square, where 
Mao had celebrated his greatest tri- 
umphs. 

Rising from a simple peasant to 
leader of the world's greatest mass 
revolution. Mao was the only ruler 
known to the People's Republic of 



China since it came into being on 
Oct. 1, 1949, after Mao's forces drove 
Chiang Kai-shek from the mainland. 

World leaders hailed Mao as the 
last giant of the century and a world 
immortal. 

President Ford called his death 
"tragic" and credited Mao's "vision 
and imagination" which led to im- 
proved Sino-U.S. relations. 

Mao's body lay in state for a week 
in the Greta Hall of the People. 

The national day of mourning 
drew the nation's millions to stand in 
silence for three minutes of medita- 
tion, and sirens, whistles, and bells 
sounded throughout the country's 
factories and trains. 

Great throngs of young people, 
many of them in tears, entered the 
square and stood in front of the im- 
mense portrait of Mao and raised 
their clenched fists, chanting oaths: 
"Beloved Mao, we commit ourselves 
to continue the struggle, always ac- 
cording to your teachings." 

Mao assumed leadership of the 
Chinese Communists in the I930's, 
beginning a long period of political 
turmoil. 

In the I960's, he used Ihe "Red 
Guards" to destroy the parly and 
state structure and then turned the 
army to solidify his position. He 
called these victories his "Cultural 
Revolutions."

A Matter of Opinion 



Amidst the stories of courtroom 
battles, shoplifting, shooting, looting 
and glass-breaking, there are two 
pages in every segment of -60- devot- 
ed to taking an in-depth look at some 
of the year's controversial stories, 
sprinkled with the authors' personal 
opinion of the situation, and a reflec- 
tive, calculating review of some of the 
things that happened here and 
around the nation during the 1976-77 
academic year. 

Why editorialize in a yearbook? 
Who cares? This isn't a newspaper, it 
will last for a long time. Is it fair to 
choose certain issues for a yearbook- 
newspaper section for editorial treat- 
ment? Why did we choose the issues 
we did? 

Well, it was all a matter of opin- 
ion. We chose issues we felt were rel- 
atively controversial in a year which 
was otherwise relatively calm. It 



wasn't a question of being fair, or 
covering all the issues, just as our 
news coverage could not possibly cov- 
er all events. But we tried to balance 
with what we felt was important and 
of the most interest. We chose to edi- 
torialize these issues for the purposes 
of giving them more complete treat- 
ment and discussion. If one looks 
back in ten years, the editorial issues 
will help us to remember what was 
important in the news at this time in 
our lives, the questions that were 
raised, the opinions voiced. 

Overall, this was not a controver- 
sial year of fate-twisting, rip-roaring 
events. Even the protests were quiet 
in comparison to those never-to-be- 
heard from again sixties. Everything 
looks quiet in comparison to those 
years. It's likely that the seventies 
will be remembered more as rational. 



low-key intellectual years. Perhaps 
the calm before another storm of riot- 
ous years, more times of violent frus- 
tration. 

Then again, it may be a sign for 
many years to come, when people re- 
alize that violence usually resolves 
little and serves primarily to attract 
attention. 

Perhaps people have reverted into 
Freud's "quiet desperation" trying to 
keep their individual lives glued to- 
gether. 

So we will remember some of the 
issues here. And we review some of 
the news, and some of the good times. 
Although most of the stories read like 
something from a police blotter, a 
campaign manager's itinerary, or an 
attorney's courtroom calendar, it rea- 
ly was a peaceful year. Thankfully, a 
reasonable and thinking time. 



An Open Letter 



Grin and bear it? 

He's a real nowhere bear 

Living in his nowhere lair . . . 

It is bare now; no longer is there a 
guardian at the front of the Student 
Union. For 20 years he stood guard, 
but he has been captured . . . 

I am writing in reference to the 
bear, a gift which the University of 
Japan gave to UMass 20 years ago. 
He stood on the platform above the 
doors to the Student Union, until 
some students went on safari and kid- 
napped the bear. 



Many people seem to feel that 
property on campus can be abused 
without facing repercussions. Chairs 
are thrown out of windows; toilet pa- 
per is used to make decorative 
streamers; windows are shattered; 
beer is spilled on floors with no 
thought given to cleaning it up. 

Surely people don't act like this at 
nome - only where they are transients 
and don't feel responsible for the 
damages. 

Can it be exciting to steal silver- 
ware, dishes, salt and pepper, or food 
from the dining commons - the et-

fects aren't really felt until the bills 
for board are raised. But confiscating 
the bear is another matter; it is the 




equivalent of stealing a museum 
piece. The bear was a symbol of 
friendship between a foreign universi- 
ty and UMass. But some inconsider- 
ate students took the bear and 
haven't had the decency to return it. 
I'm angry at whoever did it, and 
would like the bear to be returned. 
So, on behalf of all the students at 
UMass, I ask whoever took the bear 
to return it. 
Please.

— U Mass students returned to 
school before Labor Day, as the fall 
semester was lengthened from 13 to 
14 weeks, in order to equalize the fall 
and spring semesters and give stu- 
dents the necessary amount of time 
for classwork. Officials said the 13- 
week semester was insufficient time 
for courses and could only be made 
up by adding the extra week. 

— Former Dean of the School of 
Education, Dwight W. Allen, re- 
sumed teaching duties at UMass 
after a two-year sabbatical in Africa. 
Allen had resigned in January of 
1975 in the wake of a controversy 
concerning missing federal funds in 
the School of Ed. 

— The Collegian moved from its 
former office on the balcony of the 
Student Union to room 113 in the 
basement of the Campus Center, 
which is known as the Watts Com- 
plex. 

— UMass opened the only Men's 
Center in the state, located in Kenne- 
dy Tower lobby. 

— Annette Guttenberg, Speaker 
of the Undergraduate Student Sen- 
ate, resigned claiming SGA Co-Presi- 
dents Jay Martus and Paul Cronin 
had "sold out" to the university. At 
the same Sept. 8 meeting, Henry 
Doyle also submitted his resignation 
as Student Senate Treasurer because 
he was "kicked out of school." Thom- 
as Kerrins was appointed acting trea- 
surer, and Adam Auster was acting 
speaker. In elections held two weeks 
later, Kerrins was officially elected 
treasurer, while Brian DeLima won 
the speaker's position. 

— A study made by the Women's 
Caucus of the Massachusetts Society 
of Professors (MSP) was released on 
Sept. 21 and showed that female fac- 
ulty members were paid less than 
male faculty members at both UMass 
and across the nation. Based on the 
study, MSP filed a series of com- 
plaints on Oct. 19 that university ad- 
ministrators were unlawfully denying 
female faculty equal pay. 

— The university suspended 
sophomore David McDonough for al- 
legedly throwing a cinder block out of 
his ninth-floor Washington Tower 
dormitory lounge. 

— The UMass football team 
played a regionally televised game 
against Harvard. The Crimson 
dumped the Minutemen 24-13 on 
Sept. 26. 

— Holly Near performed a bene- 
fit concert for the Native American 
Solidarity Committee at the Fine 
Arts Center on Sept. 30. 

— Paul L. Puryear assumed du- 
ties as Vice-Chancellor for Academic 
Affairs and Provost on Oct. 12. 

— Professor David R. Clark an- 
nounced his resignation, effective 
Nov. I, from his position as Chair- 
man of the English Department. 
Clark taught at UMass for 25 years 
and was head of the department for 
14 months prior to his resignation.

/ The Pornography Issue 



It was a year when Mike Wallace 
and his 60 Minutes news team report- 
ed that kiddie porn was invading the 
smut markets of major U.S. cities. 

A year when Cleveland Mayor 
Ralph Perk dispensed his city's gar- 
bage collectors to distribute 280,000 
copies of a pornographic survey to 
city residents in an attempt to solicit 
community opinions on the issue. 

And at Umass it was a year when 
Charlotte Allen and Albert Sparks, 
our own king and queen of the por- 
nography question, debated the con- 
stitutional and moral implications of 
showing X-rated films on campus. 

The pornography issue first arose 
in April of 1976 when a group of 
women protested Butterfield Dormi- 
tory's showing of the film Truck Slop 
Women in Mahar Auditorium. The 
demonstrators maintained the film 
was offensive to women and also per- 
petuated and reinforced innaccurate 
sexual stereotypes. Later that month 
the Southwest Assembly denied per- 
mission to Albert Sparks and his Rec- 
ognized Student Organization, Ba- 
roque Enterprises, to show the film 
Deep Throat in the Hampden Stu- 
dent Center in Southwest. 

But the X-rated issue did not 
reach a pinnacle until September 
when Sparks began proceedings in 
the Student Judiciary to overturn the 
Southwest injunction. "Pornogra- 
phy," Sparks said, "is as American as 
free speech." 



Sparks was opposed in his efforts 
by former Collegian Women's Coor- 
dinator, Charlotte Allen. She said, 
"pornography has no place on a col- 
lege campus. We're here to learn new 
ways, to leave knowing how to treat 
each other better." 

The debate quickly moved from 
the pages of the Collet;ian to the air 
waves of radio station \iMV4 In 
October, during two constculivi. 
weekly appearances, on the call m 
show Off the Hook, Alltn and Sparks 
traded jabs and diatribes with eath 
other and callers. The show drt,w the 
largest listener response |g,jh£_'>t'i 
tion's history. 

Throughout the del 
maintained there was nothra^ se\ist 
about the movies, and ihfr ha4 no 
negative effect on the viewers 

"In fact," Sparks said they are a 
way to release our se\u it fantasies 
The usual (Umass) progrtoigtng is 
geared towards the elite^lS^e re 
shooting for the student ^&|a C 
average or below." ^S^ 

He found support amcBg tallers 
who defended their right to flee l\ 
pression. They followed the frci. 
speech argument which is used b) 
smut peddlers and their lawxers from 
Boston's Combat Zone to the streets 
of San Francisco. 

As Allen put it, "it's the typical 
liberal, wishy-washy position." 



The issue reached a climax during 
the final radio show and seemed to 
tucker put shortly thereafter. A 
So.uthwest Assembly refrendum on 
the pornography ban drew a dismal 
243 voters, with the majority voting 
against the ban, far shy of the neces- 
sary 2,000 needed to make the vote 
binding. When the matter finally ap- 
peared .before the three-judge Stu- 
dent Judiciary, the judges and advo- 
cates deliberated for four hours be- 
fore ruling that the bill was unconsti- 
tutional, irt violation of Article IV, 
Section 3 of the Student Government 
Association's Constitution. It states, 
"no student shall be denied the right 
to receive and express ideas opinions 
and facts." , 

Student judge Rosemary McCar- 
thy said, "ultimately it is the right of 
the entire community to govern its 
own actions " 

There IS' something anticlimatic 
about thp "way this story ends. Later 
in the yd&j" Sparks was denied permis- 
sion by Dean William Field, to show 
another X-rated film in the Public 
Health K^Ujlding. It was found that 
Sparks was not an enrolled UMass 
student, thus causing Baroque to lose 
, its standing 3s a student organization. 

Still, the pornography issue is far 
from limp. The large turnouts which 
heralded the arrival of Marilyn 
Chambers in Behind the Green Door, 



and Harry Reems and Linda Love- 
lace in Deep Throat suggests that the 
absence of Sparks and Baroque other 
student groups will attempt to cash in 
on porn to raise money. As Baroque 
Financial Director, Douglas Mitch- 
ell, said, "I really do think it's a bad 
thing but I guess I'm just a capitalist 
pig" 

The familiar rules of the obscen- 
ity issue have undergone a subtle but 
significant change. No longer is it a 
matter of standing in support of liter- 
ary works such as Ulysses. American 
liberals are now faced with the impli- 
cations of defending the First 
Amendment as a naked principle, 
rather than having it comfortably 
clothed as a work of art. 

The unbridled, growth of the sex 
industry in recent years which'has so 
vividly left its mark on the Times 
Squares and the Combat Zones of 
this country, has also apparently left 
its mark on the minds of us all. The 
result is a moral dilemma. Do we al- 
low those who peddle pornography to 
continue uncensored, under the guise 
of free speech, or has the First 
Amendment and the desire for free 
expression run smack into the en- 
lightened social attitudes of our 
time? 

As the saying goes, we vote at the 
box office. 



/ On Human Rights 



Bill 
Childs 

One of the more quixotic prom- 
ises of the Carter campaign was the 
pledge that the United States would 
accept the role of guardian for human 
rights throughout the world. 

After the inauguration, the issue 
of human rights was to become the 
central symbol of Carter's integrity, 
sincerity and, well - naivete. In an 
effort to strengthen a foreign policy 
Weakened by Vietnam and Chile, 
Carter sounded the trumpet to the 
United Nations and the world an- 
nouncing that the United States 
would once again model and export 
its own democratic philosophy with 
dogmatic pride. The tune, however, 
was reminiscent of the Cold War. 
Human rights has, since World War 
II been the emotional issue dividing 
east and west. It has been the trump, 
the propaganda and the focus in 
teaching Eurocommunism. 

Carter reached deep into the de- 
mocracy bag fetching the ideals upon 
which this republic was founded; Jef- 
ferson's preamble, and the writings of 
John Locke - the pursuit of life, liber- 
ty and happiness as fundamental hu- 
man rights. Carter told the members 
of the United Nations: 

"The search for peace and justice 
means also respect for human dignity 
.... no member of the United Na- 
tions can claim the mistreatment of 
its citizens is primarily its own busi- 
ness. Equally, no member can avoid 
its responsibilities to review and 
speak everywhere torture is unwar- 
ranted." 



There was a surprise for the new 
President though, his calling for a re- 
turn to the apple pie principles of gov- 
ernment brought sharp criticism not 
only from the Soviet Union but also 
from leaders of Western European 
countries. Even though Carter never 
pledged anything beyond moral sup- 
port, misgivings arose out of the hy- 
pocrisy of the U.S. delivering such an 
order. 

Carter is attempting to export a 
philosophy which the U.S. is far from 
achieving. There was the feeling dur- 
ing the United Nations address that 
the high school headmaster was deli- 
vering the old morality speech. But 
the class members knew that the 
headmaster had a mistress in the 
closet and bourbon on his breath. It is 
clear that in the U.S., the pursuit of 
happiness doesn't extend very far. 
Carter, whether he likes it or not, 
leads a country where 12 per cent of 
the population labelled "black and 
other minority groups" comprises 3 1 
per cent of the poverty pool, where 
the median income for whites is 
$14,000. and for blacks, $8,000. No 
one knows better than the members 
of the U.N. that U.S. corporations 
provide the economic backbone for 
racist regimes in South Africa. 

The other issue Carter faced was 
the effect of his holier-than-thou atti- 
tude on detente. Ever since John Ken- 
nedy pledged to base east-west rela- 
tions on the common grounds of the 
world powers rather than on philo- 
sophical differences, the Cold War 



mentality which focused on the Ber- 
lin Wall and the "threat" of the Cu- 
ban revolution, has faded. By renew- 
ing the battle for human rights 
Carter has irritated a political hemor- 
rhoid which has lately been afflicting 
the Soviets. The publicity brought 
about by recent literary and intellec- 
tual dissidents has caused the Krem- 
lin a certain amount of embarrass- 
ment. In Poland, dissenters have tak- 
en advantage of that country's initia- 
tives in 1971-72 to create a more 
open forum for public discourse. Last 
year groups of Catholic authorities, 
intellectuals and some workers chal- 
lenged the Polish government on re- 
pression and subservience to the Sovi- 
et Union. 

The Soviet response to future dis- 
senters is unlikely to be softened by 
outside influence. Following Carter's 
letter to Andrei Sakharov, dissenters 
Alexander Ginzburg and Uri Ouler 
were almost immediately arrested as 
a symbol of Soviet strength. The 
question for Carter then concerns the 
use of soft diplomacy as the most ap- 
propriate measure to defend human 
rights. During the Kissinger detente, 
over 350,000 Jews were allowed to 
leave the Soviet Union but now that 
rate has decreased significantly. It is 
unlikely that Carter can embarrass 
the Soviet Union into a more human- 
istic political course. 

For Carter, the human rights is- 
sue is an important symbol of our 
committment and concern for the 
people of the world. But if such a 



committment is to have a genuine ef- 
fect Carter needs to make a few other 
committments. First, he needs to 
prove once and for all that his quest 
for human rights is strongest here at 
home. That will be no easy task. 
Carter has inherited a system which 
seems to depend on inequality for its 
existence. Carter owes his election to 
the poor and, in turn, he must provide 
real opportunity and a feeling of 
pride to those people who have been 
neglected throughout our history. 

Secondly, Carter needs to soften 
his stand on human rights to the point 
where other nations of the world do 
not feel they are being preached to. 
He must demonstrate by action rath- 
er than rhetoric that the United 
States will not continue to be two- 
faced in its world diplomacy. The 
most important way for the United 
States to change the senseless repres- 
sion around the world is to show by 
its own example that equality is in- 
deed possible and that a democratic 
form of government is viable, effec- 
tive, and most importantly, fair. 

Until then, there are a few other 
things for Carter to consider. If he 
docs visit the Soviet Union, he should 
stay away from the port of Klaypcda. 
It has been reported that forbidden 
books are of such demand in Klay- 
pcda, Russian prostitutes prefer to be 
paid in forbidden literature rather 
than money. A copy of Notes from 
the Underground or Animal Farm 
might be a stronger test of Carter's 
lustfulness than he can handle.

Debate Team Members 
Take Second in Tourney 



Distinguished Teachers 
Honored at UMass 



Al Rosenbloom and Nick Bur- 
nett, two top members of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts Debate Union 
came back with a second-place win 
from a national debate tournament 
held at the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology (MIT) early in October. 
Dartmouth placed first in the tourna- 
ment with a two to one decision 
among three judges. 

According to Dr. Ronald J. Mat- 
Ion, faculty advisor for the group, 
there are approximately 50 members, 
many of whom are pre-law students, 
in the Union. Matlon said there are 
two options within the program. 
Some of the members may attend 
tournaments at college campuses 
across the country, while others par- 
ticipate in a Public Debate Program. 
Students in the latter program usual- 

Troops Murder 
Tribesmen 

WINDHOEK. South West Afri- 
ca - Troops which had not received 
supplies or pay in three months looted 
a village in Angola and killed at least 
500 black tribesmen during the last 
week of September, according to ref- 
ugees. 

Witnesses said the rampage by 
Angolan government troops, Cuban 
soldiers and guerillas from South 
West Africa had thrown the southern 
portion of the Marxist-ruled country 
into "total chaos." 

Officials of South West Africa's 
Owambo tribal homeland, which ad- 
joins the Angolan border, quoted ref- 
ugees as saying there were severe wa- 
ter and food shortages, and all shops, 
schools, churches, and several entire 
villages had been destroyed. 

South African security forces in 
the border area took charge of 400 
refugees, including 262 children and 
113 women who had arrived in 
Owambo, officials said. 



ly debate before various groups, such 
as service clubs and high school as- 
semblies. They advertise publicly and 
may be hired by any group who wants 
to become better informed on a given 
issue, according to Matlon. 

Matlon explained that for either 
situation a great deal of research is 
involved on the part of the partici- 
pants. Debaters must be well-in- 
formed on the topics and be able to 
argue on either side of an issue. 

This year's topic for the tourna- 
ment group was consumer product 
safety, but debaters also deal with 
such diverse subjects as auto safety, 
gun control, cigarettes, alcohol, con- 
traceptives, and food additives, ac- 
cording to David O'Brien, former 
president of the Debate Union. 



Six outstanding classroom teach- 
ers here at UMass were presented 
1976 Distinguished Teachers Awards 
in October at the annual convocation 
led by Chancellor Randolph W. Bro- 
mery. 

The three faculty members were 
English Professor Normand Berlin, 
Botany Professor Robert Livingston 
and Comparative Literature Assis- 
tant Professor Elizabeth Martin. The 
graduate students were Stephen Aus- 
tin, educational co-ordinator in the 
Sylvan Residential Area, Stephen 
Bauer, teaching assistant in Rhetoric, 
and Dennis T. Brown, teaching assis- 
tant in Zoology. 

Acting Vice-Chancellor of Aca- 
demic Affairs Dean Alfange Jr., pre- 
sented the awards. The three faculty 
members and three graduate students 
each received $1000 stipend and a 
certificate of commendation. 

The awards, which have been giv- 
en since 1962 to outstanding faculty, 
are made after examining nomina- 
tions made by both faculty and stu- 
dents. 

A committee to select the winners 
from nominating sources is made of 
former award winners, UMass facul- 
ty, graduate and undergraduate stu- 
dents. 

Dr. Berlin was graduated from 
New York University, received his 
master's degree at Columbia and his 
Ph.D. at the University of California 
at Berkeley in 1964. He came to 
UMass in 1965. 

Berlin, who is presently teaching 
Shakespeare, traditional and modern 
drama and Eugene O'Neil, said he 
was especially pleased because the 
award came from students and that 
he found pleasure in "making stu- 
dents realize that Shakespeare is the 
man." 

Dr. Livingston, who came to 
UMass in 1950, was described as "a 
devoted teacher who loves his field, 
people and teaching." "Not everyone

likes botany," said one of his former 
students, "but I can't remember any- 
one not liking Dr. Livingston." 

Dr. Martin came to the Universi- 
ty in September, 1971. She received 
her B.A. from Northwestern Univer- 
sity and earned both her masters and 
Ph.D. degrees at the University of 
California at Berkeley. 

Austin was described as "deeply 
committed to his teaching, to main- 
taining its high quality, to continually 
improving its effectiveness and to 
meeting the needs of his students." 
Austin received his B.A. at the Uni- 
versity of California at Berkeley in 
1968. 

Brown received his B.A. at the 
State University of New York Col- 
lege of Environmental Science and 
Forestry in 1974. He was cited for 
"excellent rapport with the students" 
and being "able to relate any idea or 
subject in such a way that everyone 
will understand." 

Bellevue Again 
Hosts Legionnaires 

PHILADELPHIA - The Belle- 
vue-Stratford Hotel, scene of the ill- 
fated state American Legion conven- 
tion last July that became interna- 
tionally known, was given a shot of 
corrfidence in late September by the 
Legionnaires. 

The Legion's Philadelphia Coun- 
ty Council, which had planned to 
have its Sept. 28 meeting at another 
Philadelphia hotel, decided to move 
the meeting to the Bellevue to show 
its faith in the hotel. 

The Bellevue suffered a drastic 
fall in business as the result of the 
publicity generated by the mysterious 
"Legionnaires" disease which has 
been blamed for killing 29 persons 
and affecting 150 others. 

Most of the victims had attended 
the state Legion convention in late 
July. 



Election '76 

While national attention was fo- 
cused on the much-publicized Carter- 
Ford debates during the 1976 Presi- 
dential Election Campaign, the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts held its own 
debate on the issues. 

"Election '76 - Which Way For- 
ward?" drew approximately 75 per- 
sons to Mahar Auditorium to hear 
discussion of the presidential candi- 
dates. The event was sponsored by 
the Revolutionary Student Brigade 
(RSB). 

Cliff Kornfield, national spokes- 
man for the RSB said, "I'm sick and 
tired of electing the lesser of two 
evils," and urged voters to ignore the 
polls. 

Former Undergraduate Student 
Senate Speaker Jon Hite spoke for 
the UMass Democrats. Hite en- 
dorsed Carter as the "best option" 
and urged people to vote. "Every vote 
counts," he said. 

Glen Marston, College Republi- 
cans spokesman called Carter a 
"southern-fried version of the slick 
spending Democrat."

CB Radio Popularity 
Clogs Airwaves 



Citizen Band (CB) radio sales 
were reported soaring in September 
when 23 airwave channels seemed in- 
sufficient for the increasing amount 
of users. 

That month, a Federal Communi- 
cations Commission (FCC) ruling to 
increase the number of airwave chan- 
nels to 40, drew praise from the presi- 
dent of Pathcom Inc., a CB manufac- 
turing firm based in Harbor City, 
Calif. 

William I. Thomas said the addi- 
tional channels will allow more peo- 
ple to use the airwaves for basic com- 
munications. 

He said he was more concerned, 
however, that the units will someday 
be used universally as a safety device. 

"We're going through a transi- 
tion," Thomas said. "CB sets are go- 
ing to be a useful safety device for 
motorists. Even now, many consider 
it a livesaving means - not a toy." 

In October, the 23 channel system 
was linked to a murder in Texas. 

Over his CB radio, Howard Col- 
lins, known as "Dirty Bird" to CBers, 
challenged Don Hilcher, 36, of Fort 
Worth to a fight 

Hilcher has asked Collins to slop 
monopolizing air time on a CB chan- 
nel. Collins had been using a high- 
powered radio and his broadcast had 
overlapped transmissions on other 
channels on the band. 

The two men met for the fight. 



and Hilcher died as he left the scene, 
slamming his bullet-riddled truck 
into a utlity pole. 

Collins was hospitalized for bullet 
wounds in the chest and abdomen. 

The CB radio had its highest 
growth rate shortly after the truckers' 
strike three years ago when people 
began to realize its communications 
potential. 

Manufacturer Thomas said, "not 
too many people are aware of the 
safety element of the CB." 

Some motorists use the CB in 
their cars just to avoid tickets for 
speeding, but, Thomas said, increas- 
ingly they are realizing its value for 
summoning emergency help. 

There was only one emergency 
channel last year and it was hoped 
the FCC ruling would create more. 

"That's something we've been 
working on for some time - to get 
more channels to allow more people 
to communicate," Thomas said. 

He estimated as many as 15 mil- 
lion sets in active use. He said there 
are about six million licensed CB op-

Carter's 'True Confession' 



CHICAGO - Jimmy Carter told 
Playboy magazine he has looked with 
lust on women and therefore "com- 
mitted adultery in my heart many 
times." But he said that God has for- 
given him. 

"This is something that God rec- 
ognizes I will do - and 1 have done it - 
and God forgives me for it," Carter 
was quoted as saying in a copyrighted 
Playboy interview for the magazine's 
November issue. 

Asked if he felt he had reassured 
people who might think he would be 
rigid and unbending if elected presi- 
dent. Carter delivered a long mono- 
logue on his religious beliefs and his 
concept of morality. 

In one portion of his explanation. 
Carter said, "I try not to commit a 
deliberate sin. I recognize that I'm 
going to do it anyhow, because I'm 
human and I'm tempted. And Christ 
set some impossible standards for us. 
Christ said, 'I tell you that anyone 
who looks on a woman with lust has 
in his heart already committed adul- 
tery.' 



"I've looked on a lot of women 
with lust. I've committed adultery in 
my heart many times ... but that 
doesn't mean that I condemn some- 
one who not only looks on a woman 
with lust but who leaves his wife and 
shacks up with somebody out of wed- 
lock. 

"Christ says, don't consider your- 
self better than someone else because 
one guy screws a whole bunch of 
women while the other guy is loyal to 
his wife. The guy who's loyal to his 
wife ought not to be condescending or 
proud because of the relative degree 
of sinfulness." 

Carter, a former governor of 
Georgia, said his marriage to his wife 
Rosalynn has been successful because 
he loves her "more now than when I 
married her," because she's "fully 
equal to me in every way in our rela- 
tionship" and because "we also share 
a religious faith." 

Carter sought to dispel any un- 
easiness people might have about his 
religion. 



Butz Issue Clouds Ford Campaign 



WASHINGTON — President 
Ford prepared for his second debate 
with Jimmy Carter while faced with 
the thorny problem of how to deal 
with the latest controversy involving 
Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz. 

A furor has arisen over deroga- 
tory racial remarks attributed to Butz 
in a national magazine and both Re- 
publicans and Democrats called for 
the secretary to resign or for Ford to 
fire him. 

An aide to the cabinet official told 
the Associated Press that Butz, in a 
conversation with an unnamed White 
House aide on October 2, had men- 
tioned the possibility of resigning and 
offered to do so, but then decided to 
"sleep on it." 

Butz earlier had been summoned 
to the White House, where he was 
severely reprimanded by Ford and 
apologized, saying he regretted his 
choice of language. 

Carter, who had been demanding 
Butz' ouster from the Ford cabinet 
or some time, termed the remarks 
"disgraceful" and said the agricul- 



ture secretary "should have been 
fired a long time ago." 

Although the White House re- 
mained silent on the subject, there 
was speculation that the President 
wanted to resolve the problem before 
leaving on a six-day campaign swing 
that included the debate with Carter 
in San Francisco. 

Butz settled the issue himself by 
handing his resignation to Ford on 
Oct. 4. 

The Butz affair hung like a cloud 
over the White House as the Presi- 
dent worked to clear up legislation 
piled on his desk by the 94th Con- 
gress. He met with Secretary of State 
Henry A. Kissinger to discuss the sec- 
ond verbal faceoff with Carter. The 
debate dealt with national defense 
and foreign affairs. 

Carter was being briefed by for- 
mer Defense Secretary James A. 
Schlesinger, who was fired by Ford 
the previous year because of his criti- 
cism of administrative policies con- 
cerning national defense and detente. 



Harrison Convicted of Plagiarism 



NEW YORK - Former Bealle 
George Harrison was found guilty 
early in September of "subconscious- 
ly" plagiarizing the 1962 John Mack 
tune "He's So Fine" for Harrison's 
1970 hit record, "My Sweet Lord." 

Federal Judge Richard Owen, a 
composer himself, ruled that Harri- 
son was guilty of copyright infringe- 
ment, although the judge concluded, 
"I do not believe he did so deliberate- 

ly- 

"It is clear," the judge said, "that 
'My Sweet Lord' is the very same 
song as 'He's So Fine.' This is, under 
the law, infringement of copyright 
and is no less so even though subcon- 
sciously accomplished." 

"He's So Fine" was one of the lop 



hits in England in 1963, Owen said. 
Years later, Harrison began putting 
together his "My Sweet Lord" during 
a singing engagement in Copenha- 
gen, Owen said, and finished it in 
London. 

The song was issued by Apple Re- 
cords, the Beatles' recording com- 
pany. 

Owen said it was apparent from 
the trial evidence that Harrison was 
not conscious of the fact that he was 
plagiarizing the theme of "He's So 
Fine." 

Harrison's subconscious mind. 
Owen said, "knew this combination 
would work because it already had 
worked in a song his conscious mind 
did not remember." 




A number of speakers came to the UMass campus during the 
fall, including visits from Ralph Nader (above), Art Buchwald 
(left), and Eldrege Cleaver (below}.

he textile strike of 1934 in Huntsville, Alabama, might have been forgotten if not for the song 
that was recorded at that sit-down strike. "Here We Rest" was recorded after the strike leader was 
killed during an outbreak of violence. 



We praise thee, oh God, 
For the strike of the South, 
And we thank you, Mr. Dean 
For calling us out. 

We are standing on guard 
Both night and day 
We are doing our best 
To keep scabs away. 

Many of today's artists are expressing 
the same thing the textile strikers were 
singing about — the political struggle of 
the working class. 

They also speak about nuclear energy 
and weapons, racism and sexism, and 
they do it in a way that may lack the slick 
professionalism we are used to seeing in 
artists and entertainers, but they do not 
lack creativity or talent. 

This new wave includes artists such as 
poet Sonia Sanchez, singers Holly Near 
and Gil-Scott Heron, and the Little Flags 
Theatre Collective, all of whom visited 
the university last year. 

In September, before a near sellout 
crowd, Holly Near and Jeff Langley sang 
political and feminist songs designed to 
educate as well as entertain the crowd. 

The concert was a benefit for the Na- 
tive American Solidarity Committee and 
the Commuter Collective. "Broken 
Promises," a selection especially poi- 
gnant to the occasion, concerns Lord 
Jeffrey Amherst's donation of smallpox- 
infested blankets to the American Indi- 
ans. 

Near, who refers to herself as a "cul- 
tural worker," says music is a magic way 
of raising people's consciousness. "En- 
tertainment takes on a different conno- 
tation because it gives spirit and courage. 
It makes people feel good and strong," 
she explained. 

October brought singer and compos- 
er Gil-Scott Heron to the Student Union 
Ballroom. Though he arrived 50 minutes 
late and his performance was at times 
hurried and sloppy, he came with some- 
thing to say. 

Heron is a poet as well as a composer, 
and he writes many of his own lyrics, 
often about the political state of affairs in 
America. When he sings "I Believe That 
I'll Be Free in My Lifetime," one is re- 



minded of John Steinbeck's statement 
that a song is a man's sharpest statement. 

Poet Sonia Sanchez was a guest of the 
Revolutionary Cultural Festival held in 
November. The festival, sponsored by 
the New World Center, Afro-Am Soci- 
ety and the Third World Center, was or- 
ganized with the idea that Afrikan cul- 
ture in the United States is an integral 
part of the black struggle of national po- 
litical independence. 

Sanchez often mixes her feminist 
views with her experience as a black, 
yielding such statements as "Poem Num- 
ber 2." 

My puertorican 
husband who feeds me 
cares for me and loves me 
is trying to under 
stand my Blackness 
so he is taking up 
watercolors. 

In March, the Little Flags Theatre Col- 
lective, under the direction of Maxine 
Klein, presented two plays, FANSHEN 
and TANIA. 

FANSHEN was adapted by David Hare 
from William Hinton's documentary 
about the effects of revolution on a Chi- 
nese village from 1945 to 1949. It is the 
compelling account of the people in 
their fight to throw off the landlord yoke 
and build a new world for themselves. 
The play brought a full house to the Stu- 
dent Union Ballroom. 

The next night much of the same audi- 
ence returned, plus some, to see TANIA, 
the true story of Tamara Bunke, who 
fought for the liberation of Latin Amer- 
ica and died with Che Guevara in the 
Bolivian campaign. 

in April, the National Black Theatre 
performed SOLJOURNEY INTO TRUTH 
in Bowker Auditorium. Founded in 1968 
by Barbara Ann Teer, the National Black 
Theatre bills itself as a group of "libera- 
tors/communicators," who attempt to 
re-educate black people on political is- 
sues. 

The university itself is not devoid of 
artistic political talent; it is not necessary 
to import with artist/professors such as 
Archie Shepp and Diana Ramos, who 



have integrated their political outlooks 
into the courses they teach. 

That a person can dramatically express 
their condition through dance is not a 
new idea, but a necessary one. Ramos 
brings her statement to students in this 
way 

Shepp, a tenor saxophonist, compos- 
er, writer and professor in the Afro-Am 
Department has expressed his discon- 
tent in albums such as "Attica," which 
contains songs and thoughts about the 
Attica prison revolt. 

"Chomo-Uri," a feminist arts maga- 
zine at the university, allows women to 
express themselves free of the fear of 
not sounding "saleable." Competition is 
kept at a minimum, according to editori- 
al board member Laura Holland. "In cap- 
italistic art," she explains, "the artist's 
product is recognized on the market as a 
commodity, and in some cases even the 
artist's behavior and personality become 
negotiable items as well." 

The statement of editorial policy for 
the magazine explains that the magazine 
is committed to "maintaining a relation- 
ship between artistic integrity and politi- 
cal expression." So, the magazine has an 
open policy on accepting material. The 
editorial board does not necessarily have 
to understand a piece to publish it. As it 
said in one issue, "there were a number 
of poems that we ourselves didn't com- 
pletely understand that inspired long 
discussions about their possible mean- 
ing. We realized that these poems were 
valuable precisely because of their con- 
troversial nature, rather than flawed be- 
cause of it." 

The policy is perhaps better stated by 
poet Clarita Roja, a Phillippine revolu- 
tionary, who explains that art is an instru- 
ment in actual political struggle. 

You Accuse me of sloganeering 
And being unpoetic . . . 

You are a foreigner indeed. 

Foreign to the rythm of our 

struggle. 

In the face of class murder. 

How can we be lyrical? i

1776 



In October, the Fine Arts Center pre- 
sented the Broadway musical, "1776." 
Unlike any previous show done at the 
university, the play featured four Broad- 
way actors. Stubby Kaye, William Linton, 
Barry Busse, and Darrell Sandeen in the 
lead roles, with students, professors and 
local people rounding out the cast. 

"1776" deals with the events that lead 
to the signing of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence and the conflicts revolving 
around that decision of the Second Con- 
tinental Congress. 

In an Index on Art interview. Stubby 
Kaye, who played the lead role of Ben 
Franklin, said, "It's a great show and I 
love the part of Franklin, but mostly it is a 
new experience doing a show with stu- 
dents." He couldn't put his finger on 
what he learned by doing the show, but 
claimed, "It has been good for me." 

William Linton, who portrayed John 
Adams, expressed the same feeling, but 
also claimed a special love brought him 
to New England — a love of autumn. 
Linton said he liked working on a show 
with students. "This show is such a learn- 
ing experience for both myself and the 
students. We help each other with lines 
and characters. Since I have performed 
the show before, I can give the students 
a few pointers about their character in- 
terpretations and they in turn can give 
me some new ideas for my character." 

This is what made "1776" so special, it 




was professionals helping amateurs and 
vice versa. Everyone grew in some way, 
but especially students who received 
knowledge hard to find in a classroom. 
James Cohelok, a student member of 
the cast, said, "I learned that an actor 
should always watch and listen when he 
is on stage and when he isn't. An actor 
must always remain aware of his charac- 
ter and of the other characters on stage 
with him. This is especially true when a 
person like Stubby Kaye is in the cast. 
Because of Stubby's jovial nature, the ac- 
tor has no way of knowing when he will 
ad-lib." Cohelok said another valuable 
experience was working with Barry 
Busse. Barry, who won the 1973 National 
Opera Institute competition, gave 
"pointers on vocal performance to all 
cast members." 



Because of the hectic rehearsal sched- 
ule, the actors didn't get to see a great 
deal of the UMass campus, but they all 
said they were impressed with the Fine 
Arts Center and its facilities. "The peo- 
ple at UMass are lucky to have such fa- 
cilities on campus," said Darrell San- 
deen, who played Thomas Jefferson in 
the production. You may have recog- 
nized him as the talking statue in the 
Sentry Life Insurance Company adver- 
tisements. 

Each actor said they enjoyed working 
on "1776" so much that if another op- 
portunity arose, they would surely per- 
form here again. Darrell Sandeen ex- 
pressed their feelings when he said "The 
arts will never die here."

Tomorrow Has 
Been Here And Gone 



It is not often that a playwright ven- 
tures beyond the tried and true tradi- 
tional elements of the theatre to provide 
the audience with a close look at the 
genuine behavior of an ethnic group. 
However, such an insight was offered to 
the audiences at Bowker Auditorium in 



March, when the Voices of New Africa 
House Workshop Choir presented the 
musical play, TOMORROW HAS BEEN 
HERE AND GONE. 

Written by Thurman W. Stanback, 
with songs by Semenya McCord, the 
central theme of the play are the devas-

tating circumstances in which the major- 
ity of black people in the United States 
found themselves during the sixties. 

A black New York family discovers that 
they must move from their apartment 
building because of urban renewal. 
Neighborhood tensions are just being 
settled after a race riot of a year ago, and 
the two brothers in the family are having 
philosophical differences about the 
Vietnam war. 

These features of the drama are high- 
lighted by 20 songs composed to further 
the action of the play, and from the 
opening song, "The Lord Giveth," to the 
finale, "Tomorrow Has Been Here And 
Gone," the musical unfolds as one pow- 
erful experience of joy, sorrow, frustra- 
tion, dance and song. The songs capture 
the most intimate moments of the Han- 
kins family, poor, divided and uncertain 
of the future, but determined to survive. 

Additional excitement was brought to 
the production by the full participation 
of the five colleges in the Pioneer Valley. 
Among the actors and actresses, UMass 
was the front-runner with nine perform- 
ers in the cast. 

The play was directed by Fran Ander- 
son of Hampshire College, and the music 
was under the supervision of Horace 
Clarence Boyer of UMass, who is direc- 
tor of the Voices of New Africa House.

THE 

PONGSAN 
MASKED 
DANCE- 
DRAMA 
OF 
KOREA 



"I want to be a playboy again!" shout- 
ed a figure portraying a Buddhist monk 
as he leaped on stage wearing a gro- 
tesque paper-mache mask and a shiny 
yellow costume. 

This spectacle introduced to UMass 
the PONGSAN MASKED DANCE-DRA- 
MA of KOREA, capturing the imagina- 
tions of the audience and whisking them 
from their seats into a colorful world of 
historic Korean folk culture. 

The dance-drama, begun in the sixth 
century A.D. as a form of protest by the 
people against the government, has 
transformed through the years into en- 
tertainment. 

The seven episodes based on anti-es- 
tablishment themes depict the igno- 
rance of the aristocracy, the hypocracy 
of monks who enjoy the pleasures of 
women, and the nagging wives who 
cause their husbands to prefer concu- 
bines. 

Designs were carved in space as the 
multi-colored wide-sleeved costumes 
sailed through the air to the accompani- 
ment of Korean drum, flute and harp. 

The audience expressed its apprecia- 
tion and thanks for being included on 
this tour, the first in the United States, of 
the Korean entertainers.

"Well Dr. Carlson, what do you think of my idea?" 

'it could be a fascinating study, James. Just the kind of 

thing that could give this school the kind of publicity it needs 

right now. Do you have any specific plan of attack in mind? I'm

seemed endless. 

"Ah, my esteemed colleague, I'm way ahead of you. I just so 
happen to have two people in mind, and I tnink they'd be 
perfect. They've been looking for a project similar to this for 
work on their dissertations. It could work out fine as a 
joint project. " James' reply was one of smug satisfaction. 

"James, don't keep me guessing, you fool. Who are you 
talking about?" 

"Chris St. Sinclair and Vanessa HoUingsworth, my doctoral 
candidates. You have had the pleasure, haven't you?" 



Carlson did not reply for a moment, then spoke slowly, 
nodding his head with satisfaction. "Yes James, you're right. 
They would be ideal. Contact them with the proposal. If they 
agree, proceed immediately. Of course, they will have to pub- 
lish their findings. The committee will love it!" Carlson 
could hardly repress the excitement in his voice. 

"It's as good as done," James replied.

moving slowly, engrossed in a book, as usual. Besides, halfway 
across campus couldn't have been more Ihan twenty feet. 

"Christian. I've been looking for you all morning. Have you 
talked to Dr. James?" she asked breathlessly. 

"No, I've been trying to finish this book. I may be able to 
squeeze enough substance from it to write my dissertation 
proposal. Pretty interesting stuff, it's called "The Inner Re- 
sources of Intrinsic Mo ..."

"Go on, it sounds absolutely intriguing," he said with a 
laugh. 

"I'm serious." 

"So am I. I'm also desperate. What's he have in mind?" 

"The premise is to find out what motivates students to attend 
a large, impersonal university, instead of a small school like 
ours. The idea is that there must be some sort of, uh, some kind 
of - well, I don't know, just something that would make a 
student choose that kind of confusing environment. It would

involve enrolling in the school and becoming "students" there 
for a year. Then we would research the various academic 
programs available. It would be a lot of work, and we'd be 
required to publish, but maybe it could make us famous. What 
do you think?" 

"Sounds okay. It also sounds to me like what is proposed, 
more or less, in this book ..." 

"Forget the book. We are now in search of, uh - seeking the 
origin of ..." 

"In search of intrinsic motivation," Chris said definitively. 



"Yeah. Right. How did you think of that one?" 
"All in a morning's work." 

****************** 

It was dark and stormy night. As we jammed the last of our 
possessions into the already overcrowded elevators, we shared 
the same feeling. We should've turned around and headed for 
home. 

The minute we saw those huge buildings looming over us, 
and the thousands of students who blocked every entrance and 
exit, we feared we had made a mistake. Lost forever in the 







'> 




cement confines of a place called Southwest. 

After the project had been accepted by the committee, Van 
and I decided to choose a university in the east. After all, one 
hears so much about those wonderful eastern schools, why not 
try one out? And while we were at it, we thought we'd try one 
of ttie largest. So, our final destmation became the University 
of Massachusetts, in the quiet New England town of Amherst. 

Beginning our research in September, we found that UMass 
has approximately 23,000 underj^rad and graduate students, 
roughly 1,478 faculty members, and offers about 6,000 



courses. Within the university are six different colleges, and 
students may take courses at any one of the other four colleges 
in the area, that operate on a co-operative basis with UMass. 
We "became" students, with only a few faculty members 
knowing the truth or our research, in order to help arrange our 
plan of action and help cut through all the red tape. We were 
"assigned" rooms in Coolidge, the eleventh floor. I didn't both- 
er to tell Van 1 was afraid of heights. At first, it was an absolute 
madhouse, but once things settled down, it actually seemed 
quite livable. I suppose a student can get used to living in any

environment. 

Upon receipt of my I.D. card, I had to marvel at the spelling 
of the university's name. The back of the card read, "Universi- 
ty of Massachmusetts." I guessed spelling was not one of the 
school's strong points. 

Then the real grind began. Van was enrolled in six special 
programs, and I was signed up for just about every major in the 
College of Arts and Sciences. Graduation from this place con- 
sisted of completion of university requirements (cores), and 
completion of individual major requirements as well as comple- 





tion of the requirements of the particular college. That, unfo.- 
tunately, meant that I had to take a foreign language, or so said 
the flustered young woman in the CASIAC office. Part of my 
work was to seek out advice, and see how readily available it 
was. It was available all right, once you found it. The CASIAC 
office provided information which was valuable to all students, 
especially freshpersons. Most first-year students start out as 
CASIAC majors. I thought it was great to have a counseling 
center where students just starting out could talk to more 
experienced students. This place was becoming smaller.

Attending a university means many things. It requires large investments 
of time, money, and energy. It involves making many choices. And along 
with the choices pertaining to one's career and choosing a major, there are 
the other decisions - such as what to do with time outside the classroom. 
One way students may use that time is by participating in some of the 
many communications activties available on campus. On the following 
pages, we take a brief look at a handful of such organizations - there are 
many others equally as valuable in terms of experience, socialization, and 
interest. Either way, it's a MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Just imagine - an opportunity to have your 
name in print before 20,000 readers on a daily 
basis! All it takes is the interest and ambition 
to find the Collegian office in the basement of 
the Campus Center, and meet the press - the 
students who produce New England's largest 
college daily. 

The Collegian is published on every aca- 
demic day of the year, and provides an excel- 
lent opportunity to get involved in campus 
events, meet a lot of people, and acquire valu- 
able journalistic, photographic, or artistic 
skills. Whatever your interest, you can work 
for the Collegian - and make it work for you. 

It is geared toward the student population 
on campus, and is produced soley by students. 
If you are a dedicated reporter-type, you can 
expect to work long and unusual hours, and 
do some unusual things. You can also expect 
to have a semi-professional media experience 
that is well worth the effort. There are also 
good opportunities to put your business 
expertise to work, either in advertising or 
management. 

Although the Collegian is perhaps the most 
widely read publication on campus, there are 
also publications such as Nummo News, and 
Outfront, which serve special interests. 

If you prefer a smaller, more intimate kind 
of journalistic experience, there are papers like 
Genesis, produced by students in Pierpont, and 
Parchment, the weekly paper serving the Syl- 
van area. 

So, if you'd like to see some of your own 
ideas in print. UMass is the place to do it, . . 
it's just a matter of life and deadlines.

September, 1976 - UMass 
football. Predictions. 
Optimism. Dreams. A Yankee 
Conference crown? A bowl 
bid? Good or great? 

October - A 4-1 record. And 
still not in peak form. Good 
or great? 

November - Reality. 
Disappointing reality. Great? 
— negative. Good? — ditto. 
Mediocre? — SCORE! 

As with all teams, the 
UMass football squad began 
its 1976 season with a spirit 
of optimism. But unlike most 
other teams, the UMass 
optimism did not lean on 
dreams and illusions for 
support. No, dammit, this 
team had some talent, some 
real hardcore talent. And so, 
when players, coaches and 
fans alike spoke of a 
conference championship or 
maybe even a bowl bid, no 
one laughed. This team had a 
chance. 

Now we can only look at 
results, and when a football 
team drops four of its last 
five games, scores a total of 
13 points in the four defeats, 
and finishes with a 5-5 
record, no one is whooping it 
up. No one is boasting. 

But a lot of people are 
hurting. 

For the Minutemen, these 
hurts come forth in an 
abundance of ways, shapes 
and forms. 

There was the emotional 
hurt of defeat, the greatest of 
which had to have been the 
loss on Homecoming Day to a 
winless rival from 
Connecticut. It was on that 
day that UConn, trodding 
through a dismal 0-6 
campaign, hit the 4-1 
Minutemen with a surprise 
attack of newly-found spirit 
and dealt UMass a 28-6 
stunner. 

It was this UConn game 
which later typified the 
season-ending downslide of 
the gridders. 

"The UConn game had to 
hurt us the most all season 
long," said a retrospective 
UMass coach Dick 
MacPherson. "Ever since we 
came home for that game 
and lost to an 0-6 UConn 
team, our players just didn't 
recover emotionally from 

that. CONTINUED ON PAGE 55

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 53 

The hurts came via the 
injury route as well, as a 
plethora of assorted 
cripplings found their way to 
the locker room training 
table. Senior linebacker John 
Toner, one of the team's co- 
captains, and junior rover 
Steve Telander headed the 
list with achilles' heel and leg 
injuries, respectively. 

The tight end position 
received the royal jinx, 
however, as all three players 
at that spot were aching 
simultaneously. 

In the end, what hurt the 
most though, was pride. It 
was pride which took a 
beating when the Minutemen, 
still in contention for a 
Yankee Conference crown, 
were embarrassed by the 
Wildcats of New Hampshire in 
a game UMass hoped would 
satisfy revenge from a loss to 
UNH a year earlier. And it 
was pride which sunk to its 
lowest point when UMass 
ended its season with an 
inept showing against a we- 
all-hate Boston College team. 

No, it wasn't a glamorous 
season by any means. We 
had expected much more, 
and as a result, the bad 
lingers with us. 

There was some good 
amidst the mediocrity 
though. Senior halfback Rick 
Jessamy broke the all-time 
UMass rushing record for a 
career. Senior safety Ron 
Harris, a mainstay of the 
defense, set a record for 
yards gained in a career on 
punt returns for UMass. 

There were the surprise 
performances by Cummings 
and running back Bill 
Coleman, among others, and 
the consistent lineplay of 
Dennis Fenton and Dave 
Williamson, voted by their 
teammates as Most Valuable 
Defensive and Offensive 
Linemen, respectively. 

One could dig deeper. A 
last minute come-from-behind 
win against Rhode Island when 
McNally hit clutch passes 
at the end to Cummings 
and John Gladchuk for the 
victory. A defense whose 
stinginess prevailed all year. 

To conclude, one can only 
cite the record. A 5-5 campaign. 
No one was boasting.

Frustrating. That's the 
only word that you can use 
to describe the 1976 season 
for the UMass soccer team. 
So often the Minutemen had 
come so close to winning, 
only to lose several games 
by no more than a single 
goal. 

It was a season in which 
the early high aspirations 
turned into late-season self- 
doubt. I 

The Minutemen started 
the season off well by de- 
feating an English All-Star 
team in their first scrim- 
mage. However, in their last 
scrimmage before the regu- 
lar season was to begin, the 
Minutemen were badly beat- 
en by Brown. 






"^'"-'OSt 



Then UMass buffered 
some heartbreaking losses 
in the early part of the sea- 
son. In their first game, the 
Minutemen lost to Bridge- 



port, 4-2 in overtime and in 
the following game, they lost 
another close one, this time 
to Maine, 2-1, also in over- 
time. 

Towards the end of the 
season, after a few more 
frustrating one-goal losses, 
the UMass hooters played 
the type of soccer they were 
capable of, and that was win- 
ning soccer. 

The Minutemen finished 
the disappointing season on 
a strong note, as they tied 
Boston College and then de- 
feated Springfield, UNH and 
Tufts. 

"I think that it was just a 
combination of everyone be- 
ing so angry with them- 
selves," said co-captain 
goalie Mark Hanks, "that 
made us turn the season 
around in a winning direc- 
tion. 

"Our strong finish made- 
up somewhat for our early 
season disappointments. It's 
a shame though, we had so 
much confidence in the be- 
ginning of the season that 
we thought we were going to 
be a contending playoff 
team, but instead, we end up 
with a 5-8-1 season record.

Let's face it, you could have 
all the high-goal scorers you 
want on your team, but without 
a good, consistent person in 
the goal, your team just will not 
be that successful. 

However, that was the ace in 
the hand first-year coach Judy 
Davidson had. Not only did she 
have some fine offensive goal 
scorers with Cheryl Meliones, 
Karen Zimmerman and Judy 
Kennedy, but she also had a 
good, consistent person in 
goal, Kathy Gipps. 

If there were two words that 
could accurately describe this 
year's UMass field hockey 
team, they would be "superb 
goaltending." 

After getting off to somewhat 
of a shaky start, Davidson 
tightened up the Minutewo- 
men's defense and they re- 
sponded positively by going on 
a five-game winning streak. 

But the highlight of the win- 
ning streak was not so much 
the production of the UMass 
offense, instead, it was the 
goaltending of Gipps, who post- 
ed four-consecutive shutouts 
along the way. Gipps' consis- 
tent performance in the goal 
enabled the Minutewomen to 
turn their season around. 

However, after the Min- 
utewomen defeated Smith Col- 
lege for their fifth consecutive 
win, they went into a season- 
ending slump, which saw them 
lose to New England power 
Springfield College and to not 
so powerful Northeastern. 

The Minutewomen capped 
their fine 9-4 regular-season 
record by qualifying for the 
AIAW playoffs held at Brown 
University.

the ground 




If there was one team on 
campus that made the biggest 
advancement in terms of qual- 
ity and caliber of play, schedu 
ing and in growth of fan inter- 
est, it would have to be the 
1976 UMass volleyball team. 

In its two previous years, the 
UMass volleyball program lived 
in a world of oblivion and was a 
virtual non-entity to campus 
sports enthusiasts. However, 
under the direction of first-year 
coach Diane Thompson, the 
UMass volleyball program has 
finally gotten off of the ground 
and has begun to blossom. 

Instead of playing their old 
ten-game schedule, the Min- 
utewomen played a record 30 
matches this year, competing 
against schools up and down 
the East coast - from Maine to 
Delaware. 

Although the Minutewomen 
had a 9-20-1 season record 
this year, they were selected to 
participate in the Eastern Re- 
gionals, held in Edinboro, Penn. 
However, UMass did not fare 
so well in the Regionals as the 
Minutewomen were eliminated 

the early rounds. 

'We are still building the pro- 
" Thompson said, "but I 
that the sport of volley- 
has a very bright future 





the fall season/59 






women reach forefront... 



With six of his top seven run- 
ners returning from a very suc- 
cessful initial season in 1975, 
women's cross-country coach 
Ken O'Brien had at least that 
many reasons to smile about 
his team's fortunes for 1976. 

In 1976, the women went un- 
defeated in dual meets against 
Williams, Dartmouth, Brandeis 
and Radcliffe; they also won 
both invitational meets they 
entered. 

Throughout the season, the 
Minutewomen used balance, 
depth, pack running and the 
ability to swap-off at key posi- 
tions to overpower all of their 
opponents by margins ranging 
from 27-88 points. 



In the five regular season 
meets, Julie Lafreniere and Jo- 
hara Chapman split the lead 
position, as they were each 
first for the team in two races, 
with one tie. The remaining or- 
der of finish was never predict- 
able, with Sue Swartz, Maggie 
Crowley, Jane Welzel, Debbie 
Farmer, Barb Callanan, Anne 
Bradshaw and Diane Perry usu- 
ally dicing it up behind them; 
and with Monica Scott, Bonnie 
Bukowski, Jeanette Sturman 
and Cathy Martin in another 
bunch. 

This swapping off, pack run- 
ning approach was lauded by 
O'Brien, who said at midsea- 
son, "It's a good thing - it 



shows that we have a lot of 
people of equal ability, and that 
they haven't established them- 
selves in rank order." 

The Minutewomen brought 
this intense inter-squad rivalry 
into the New England Cham- 
pionship held Nov. 23 at 
UMass, and it resulted in per- 
sonal best times for all 11 
UMass harriers. Only a superla- 
tive performance by Middle- 
bury College of Vermont pre- 
vented the UMass women from 
repeating as New England 
champions, as it eked out the 
victory, 42-47. 

The women also went on to 
score a fine third-place finish in 
the Eastern Championship 



meet, and also finished a cred 
itable 14th in the Nationals;: 
each time being led by stan- 
dout runner Lafreniere, who) 
was fourth in the New England 
meet, 15th in the Easterns and I 
in the top 70 at the Nationals. 
The Minutewomen showed 
tremendous growth and im- 
provement in their second sea- 
son, as much as women's inter- 
collegiate cross-country grew. 
With only Chapman, Crowley 
and Perry graduating, the 
women should be in the fore- 
front of the New England and 
Eastern scene for years to 
come.

It was just another typical 
'ear for the UMass men's 
;ross-country team. Nothing 
>ut of the ordinary mind you, 
)ut it was just another year in 
vhich the harriers did their 
hing and did it well. 

It was another year, the sev- 
enth in a row as a matter of 
act, that the Minutemen took 
irst place in the Yankee Con- 
erence Championships. 

it was also another year in 
vhich the UMass men harriers 
nade their usual strong show- 
ng in the Eastern's, as the Min- 
Jtemen placed second. 

And you can't forget the 
C4A's, where the Minutemen 
)laced seventh out of 101 



schools in competition. 

To other schools, these sea- 
son statistics might seem very 
impressive, but for the UMass 
cross-country team, it was just 
another year because the Min- 
utemen have been doing this 
year in and year out. 

However, there was some- 
thing unique about this year's 
team compared to teams of 
the past, in that it was a sopho- 
more who led the team. 

Not only did sophomore 
Mike Quinn place first in four of 
the major meets that he was 
in, but he also earned Ail- 
American honors for his 25th- 
place finish in the Nationals 
held at North Texas State. 



The 5-foot-lO, 140-pound 
native of Dedham opened the 
1976 season on a positive note 
for the Minutemen when he 
took first place in the UMass 
Apple Orchard Race, which the 
Minutemen easily won. 

Then, following a bizzare 
race in Boston in which Quinn 
and several members of the 
UMass team took the wrong 
turn in a race in Franklin Park, 
he came back a week later by 
placing first in a tri-meet in New 
York City's Van Cortland Park. 

One week after that, Quinn 
returned to the same course 
and once again placed first in a 
meet that was held during a 
torrential rainstorm. At times 



throughout the race, the run- 
ners were running in five-inch 
puddles of water and 50 mile- 
per-hour winds. 

One of Quinn's coaches, as- 
sistant coach Arnie Morse, said 
that his limitations are still un- 
known and that his future suc- 
cess will be based on how 
healthy he will be during the 
next two years. 

Overshadowed by Quinn's 
surprising success were the 
consistently strong perfor- 
mances of seniors John 
McGrail and Chris Farmer and 
sophomore Frank Carroll.

, , the fall season/61 



When you talk about 

dedication, you're talking 

about the cross-country 

runner. The input is great - 

training long miles in bad 

weather, at unusual hours of 

the day, dodging cars and 

canines. The return may 

seem small, as small as the 

number of spectators at most 

cross-country meets. 

The members of the UMass 

women's cross-country team 

get a strong personal 

satisfaction from competing 

and achieving well. There are 

the fringe benefits of being a 

cross-country runner; "It's a 

social thing because you get 

to meet a lot of people," says 

one member of the UMass 

women's team. 

Then there is experiencing 

a feeling you can never really 

understand unless you are a 

dedicated runner and that is 

the ecstacy you feel inside 

after finishing a 10-mile run. 

More important, though, Is 

the feeling of friendship and 

unity that permeates 

the team. It's this love of the 

sport and love of the team 

that has contributed so much 

to the successful women's 

cross-country program at 

UMass, even though it is in 

only its second year of 

competition. 

For the few who were able 

to appreciate it, the sight of a 

red wave of harriers 

dominating a meet was an 

unforgettable and a rather 

common one. 

That was the reward for 

the hours of hard work and 

sweat that had been 

expended for the past year — 

for even though cross-country 

Is a fall sport, the runner's 

season Is a year-round thing. 

"I wouldn't be able to live 

with anyone If I wasn't 

running," said another 

member of the team. 

"When you run five miles a 

day," said one woman, "you 

then want to see if you can 

run eight the next day." 

The women are just 

beginning to find out how far 

their bodies can take them. 

Only the future holds the 

answer to that. Given their 

ability, dedication and 

competitive spirit, the UMass 

women's cross-country 

program certainly has a 

bright future.

Concentration 
On Mastication 

It is common knowledge that most first year 
college students tend to gain about 10 pounds. 
This is generally attributed to the generous 
portions of starch available at the dining com- 
mons, and the freedom to eat as much of it as is 
desired. This satisfies the parental inquiries as 
to the added weight, but little do they realize 
that the D.C. food is not the only criminal. 
When was the last time you ate a big meal 
there? 

Still thinking, huh? You've heard the myth 
that college students subsist on Coke, pizza, 
and potato chips. Well, that's not so far from 
the truth. "Hot Bell's pizza, come get your hot 
pizza here" is a common cry heard in dorm 
corridors, and the response is not dissimilar to 
that of Pavlov's dog. Bell's, Superior, Pizza Ex- 
press, University Pizza, Hungry U, Bites, the 
Coffee Shop, and the 12th floors of John Adams 
and George Washington towers are all conve- 
nient for student patronage. 

And ice-cream! Even during a blizzard there 
are always a few hard-core addicts who will 
venture to Baskin-Robbins, Just Desserts, 
Friendly's, McManus', Howard Johnson's or 
The Gaslite. For those who don't mind the 
more limited selection. Bites, the Catalyst, the 
Subway or the Greenough Snack Bar will suf- 
fice. 

But these are mere noshes. For a quick lunch 
or lingering coffee, the Blue Wall, Hatch, Cof- 
fee Shop, or Earth Foods are the crowded on- 
campus favorites. When one desires a varied 
hamburg diet, there are the inexpensive op- 
tions of Hardee's, Burger King, McDonald's or 
Bonanza. 

Want atmosphere? Hop the five-college bus 
to Northampton and sample the menus at Fitz- 
willy's. The Soup Kitchen, Beardsley's, or Cous- 
in William's. Or, in Amherst, the center of town 
itself provides a unique setting for customers 
dining on the patio of Judie's. 

Are your parents coming? This deserves a 
celebration. UMass' version of Windows of the 
World-the top of the Campus-is a pleasant 
place to dine. The Lord Jeff is an expensive, but 
comfortable restaurant, as are the Rusty Scup- 
per and the Jolly Bull. In Northampton, the 
Aqua Vitae and the original Jack August's are

Popcorn - an ever

just a combination

buds with their own creations or those of 
Swanson's, Munchy's, Watroba's, Cumberland 
Farms and 7-11 are all nearby^ offering over- 
priced items. For a more practical shopping 
excursion, one can venture to Stop & Shop, 
Finast, Louis' or the People's Market. 

Surveys have shown that eating at home may 
be very expensive, in fact, one of every three 
food dollars is spent in eating outside the 
home. Food is big business, whether one is 
shopping in a supermarket or eating out. Mil- 
lions are made each year not only on the sale of 
food, but also the method of consumption. 
There are innumerable books on dieting meth- 
ods, food fads, dieting workshops and the like. 
At LIMass, for example, coffee is one of the 
most popular food items bought at the Hatch 
and Coffee Shop - combined they sell 510,000 
cups in 30 weeks, easily outdistancing both 
soda and milk. 

During the busy season (spring) these places 
sell 40-100 gallons of frozen yogurt per week. 
Although this blend has been on the market for 
six or seven years, it has only been within the 
past few years that interest in"frogurt"hasbeen 
the upswing. 

Eating has become a social activity; it often 
doesn't really matter what the food tastes like, 
but that it is eaten in good company. 

Hey! Remember the time we brought the 
table cloth and candles to the dining commons 
and the lady there said . . .

UMass boasts of having the ol- 
dest living Japanese Elm tree in 
the country. Located on the 
S.W. corner of South College, 
the tree's history is gnarled by 
two conflicting stories of ori- 
gin. One suggests that it was Dr. 
Clark, president of UMass dur- 
ing the 1870's who brought the 
tree and other Japanese plants 
back to this country as a gift 
from the Emperor of Japan. Ar- 
chives reveal a different story 
— that many Japanese Elms 
were brought back by William 
Penn Brooks in 1890. He had 
been teaching at Sapporo Agri- 
cultural College in Hokkaido, 
Japan. Other Japanese Elms 
have been planted near the 
president's nouse and by the 
Episcopal church in Amherst. 



Speaking of "oldest" things, 
Marshall Hall is the oldest 
working microbiology lab in 
the country. It was built in 1915 
for $68,459. 

Would you believe it! Those 
monstrous concrete slabs that 
jut out of the ground between 
the S.U.B. and the C.C. are evi- 
dence of a mistake! There are 
those who claim that the Cam- 
pus Center was built in the 
wrong direction, but who 
would ever admit to that? Re- 
gardless, those "things" were 
originally built to support a gi- 
ant walkway. 





During World War II, food 
technology researchers at 
UMass (then Mass State Col- 
lege) achieved world-wide 
fame for developing healthier 
means of preserving and can- 
ning shrimp.

Graffiti, it was said by 
one of the library poets, 
is the people's art. Hu- 
man nature drives man 
to explore new avenues 
of communication. Yet, 
the flair-tip pen and the 
bathroom stall have not 
always been around. 
A quick bit of research 
exposes graffiti to be a 
word of Italian origin, 
translating roughly to 
mean scratchings or 
scribblings. Examples 
found on the walls of 
Roman catacombs were 
characterized by the ar- 
chaeoligists who discov- 
ered them as messages 
by lovers, poetry, ob- 
scene terms and political 
slogans. Sound similar to 
the elevator in your 
dorm? 

Graffiti has become 
such a popular pastime 
throughout campus that 
a space pinch is begin- 
ning to be felt. (No, a 
space pinch is not some- 
thing Mr. Spock gives to 
a Clingon,) Star Trek 
brings to mind the trivia 
messages which appear 
on every landing in the 
library stairwells. Can- 
celed some time ago, 
Trekkies have managed to 
keep the spirit alive. 
God, who many feel to 
be in the same cancella- 
tion boat as the Trek, 
gets his. and or her fair 
share of publicity. Who 
could ask for more equal 
billing with McCoy, 
Scotty, Mr. Spoc and 
yes, even Captain Kirk? 
Drugs have been 
thought of by students 
as everything from a past 
time to an occupation. 
"LSD consumes 47 times 
its own weight in excess 
reality" and "Acid, it 
melts in your mind, not 
in your hands" illustrate 
that (he 60's are still 
alive here at the univer- 
sity. "The higher you 
get, the better your 
view" might be thought 
a comment on the sce- 
nery anywhere else, but 
ru>t here. 

Though we feel our- 
selves original in our 
phrases, graffiti is eternal. 
The names may change 
or the situations differ, 
but the basic elements of 
communication remain 
the same. People will al- 
ways want to be heard. 
— Robert E. Serafin

Editor's Note: The following information was acquired through the co- 
operation of Maynard Davis. Shelly Chaiken. and Project PULSE. It is based on 
an INDEX survey answered by 200 UMass students chosen at random. We have 
generalized its application to the entire university community. Use of the term 
"average" in no way implies that any or all students on campus fall into this 
stereotype and is used soley for the purpose of presenting a general, overall 
picture of a UMass student this year, based on the survey. If you do not agree 
with the results, please consider yourself a standard deviate. 

To begin our description of the average UMass student in 1977, let's take a 
look at what's in fashion. Starting at the top, we find that 62.3 per cent have 
hair trimmed above shoulder length, 22.1 per cent have shoulder length hair and 
15.6 per cent are shy of scissors. Of the gentlemen, we find that 39.8 per cent 
have mustaches, and 1.8 percent have long hair. 

Behind the scenes, we see that 53.8 per cent of the back pockets observed have 
the familiar Levi's name, with Wrangler and Lee running second and third re- 
spectively. 

As we bow our heads for a bit of reflective thought, we notice that 36.5 per 
cent wear Earth Shoes, or those of a similar style. 

Taking the time for conversation, we learn that 65.5 per cent of the students 
don't belong to an organized club or activity on campus — almost two-thirds of 
the students polled. Of the remaining one-third, 64.2 per cent belong to one Rec- 
ognized Student Organization, and 3.0 per cent belong to four such groups. 

As we turn our interest to sports, we find that 24.0 per cent of the students do 
not attend any UMass sports events during the year, while 23.0 per cent attend 
eight or more events. And speaking of events and entertainment, 8.5 per cent of 
the students said they do not attend any campus movie presentations, while 31.0 
per cent are front-row-center for eight or more. 

When we inquired about living arrangements, we found that 62.3 per cent of 
the students have lived in at least one dorm (we wondered if that was by 
choice) while 15.6 percent have never had the pleasure of dorm living. 

The most popular building at UMass is the Campus Center, followed by the 
Fine Arts Center, Old Chapel, Herter Hall and the Graduate Research Center. 
The University Library and Tobin Hall tied for sixth place. Five dorms were also 
nominated as favorite buildings. Imagine that . . . 

Then we got around to discussing transportation, an important issue on a cam- 
pus this size. We found that 31.2 per cent of the students ride bikes on campus, 
and 36.5 per cent have cars which they use during the school year. Of the car 
owners, 32.9 per cent have had their cars towed from a campus parking lot, and 
no one reported having their bike towed. Stolen-yes, towed, no. 

By now' we've gotten quite friendly with our 200 co-operating students, and 
find Coke is the preferred brand of soda, by far the favorite over Welch's Grape, 
Fanta Orange, Sprite, Hire's Root Beer, and Dr. Pepper. 

On the more serious side, 16.0 per cent have given blood at a UMass blood 
drive or at the Health Services Blood Donor Clinic. 

Next, we posed the following questions, "Do you think the university has 
changed much in the time you have been here?" and "Do you think you have 
changed much in the time you have been here?" Some students said (63.5 per 
cent) that they have changed, but the university has remained the same. Others 
(21.4 per cent) felt they had changed, and UMass had changed (although they 
didn't say for better or worse), and 13.0 per cent felt neither had changed. There 
must be some deep hidden meaning in that one. 

As far as leisure time was concerned, we found the majority of those surveyed 
did not watch television (alright, take that you intellectuals), while of those who 
did the favorite programs were, in order, M*A*S*H, Sixty Minutes, Rich Man, 
Poor Man, Monty Python, Nova. Saturday Night Live. All in the Family, The 
Gong Show (we didn't believe it, either) Charlie's Angels (that was inevitable), 
and of course. Star Trek. 

One last question directed to the UMass students was, "Have you ever seen 
Chancellor Bromery in person?". To which the answer was a resounding 78 per 
cent no. 

After noting the students' television preferences, may we suggest that Dr. Bro- 
mery try the Gong Showl

Carter Elected 39th President 



James Earl Carter was elected the 
39th President of the United States 
on Nov. 3, 1976. 

The former Georgia governor de- 



feated incumbent Gerald R, Ford in 
electoral votes, 303 to 235. 

In popular votes. Carter tallied 
40,173,854 (51 per cent) to 
38,429,988 (48 per cent) for Ford. 




James Earl Carter 



Independent Eugene McCarthy 
received 654,770 votes for one per 
cent of the turnout. 

Later that day, Wednesday, a 
hoarse and weary Republican candi- 
date and his wife, Betty, read his con- 
cession speech and the president's 
telegram remarks to Carter 

The highly emotional scene was 
climaxed when the defeated candi- 
date from Grand Rapids, Michigan, 
shook hands with reporters in the 
press room after his concession. 

Carter had a more joyous 
Wednesday morning as he led a rau- 
cous victory rally in Atlanta before 
he returned to his home in Plains, 
Georgia. 

At the dawn welcome of his 
neighbors. Carter became so choked 
up over his reception after 22 months 
of campaigning that he hugged his 
wife Rosalynn. They both wept. 

Carter's rise from a national un- 
known to the nation's highest elected 
position was a modern success story, 
but the edge Carter won on was very 
thin. 

Even though 79 million ballots 
were cast, the shift in just a handful 
could have elected Gerald Ford in his 
own right. 

The New York state Republican 
party was going to court to ask for a 
recount, but dropped the motion 
when Ford conceded. 

Oregon and Ohio were so close 
that Carter was not declared a winner 



until much later in the day. 

Ford carried more states than 
Carter, 26 to 22 and the District of 
Columbia, but Carter nabbed the 
more populated states. 

Building on his solid southern 
base, the former U.S. naval officer 
collected electoral votes from tradi- 
tional Democratic bastions, the in- 
dustrial states in the northeast and 
midwest. 

The narrow outcome came after 
Ford made a superlative effort to 
overcome a 39 percentage point lead 
in the polls which Carter had after he 
emerged from the Democratic con- 
vention with the nomination. 

The day before the election, both 
candidates and their running mates 
concentrated their efforts in states 
that had a large number of electoral 
votes. 

Ford campaigned in Ohio and 
Michigan the Monday before the 
test. Carter also campaigned in 
Michigan after he stumped in Cali- 
fornia. 

Robert Dole, Ford's Vice-Presi- 
dential choice, did a marathon tour 
through Illijipis, Nebraska, Iowa, 
Missouri, and his native Kansas. 

Mondale stumped heavily in New 
York and Pennsylvania. 

While the candidates tried the 
personal touch, both major parties 
rallied for a last gasp media blitz in a 
campaign that was dominated by the 
media. 



Brown Denied Bail in Third Bid 



UMass senior Robert Earl Brown 
was denied bail in his attempt for a 
third trial on Dec. 10. 

The 23 year old black senior was 
convicted of armed robbery of a 
McDonald's fast-food restaurant lo- 
cated in Hadley in October of 1975. 

At the time he was seeking his 
third trial Brown was attending 
classes on a work-study release pro- 
gram from the Hampshire County 
House of Correction. 

In the first trial Brown, who was 
tried at the time with former UMass 
student Craemen Gethers for the al- 
leged crime, did not receive a verdict 
as the trial resulted in a "hung jury." 

In the next series of trials, both 
men were considered seperately. 
Gethers was convicted on the charges 
and is serving eight to 12 years in 



Norfolk State Prison for the Aug. 7, 
1975 armed robbery. 

Brown was given three to five 
years and sent to Hampshire County 
jail where he was being held while on 
the work and study release program. 

Brown's attempt for bail pending 
a new trial failed, but presiding Judge 
Paul Tamburello of Hampshire Supe- 
rior Court held out hope for an evi- 
dential hearing later in the month. 

The hearing was requested by 
Brown's lawyer, David Rosenberg of 
Cambridge. 

Rosenberg told the court that 
Brown's former attorney, Jerome 
Farrell of Northampton, did "noth- 
ing in preparation" for Brown's trial 
in October of 1975. 

"We have a Prima Facie case of 
ineffective counsel," Rosenberg said. 



The Cambridge lawyer cited Farrells 
failure to adequately cross examine 
witnesses and a similar failure to 
question the photo identification pro- 
cess by which eye-witnesses identi- 
fied Brown in court. 

Ir. a related matter, Rosenberg 
submitted an affidavit minutes before 
proceedings started that called into 
doubt the testimony of some of the 
eye-witnesses. 

One of the three eye-witnesses, 
Stephanie Pratt who was on Cape 
Cod at the time, said that she and the 
other two witnesses, Deborah Cook 
and Kathy Clark, actually identified 
a different face from that of the 
UMass senior in the original photo 
line-up. 

Rosenberg also said that one of 
the witnesses said "I don't believe he 
(Earl Brown) was one of the rob- 
bers." 




Robert Earl Brown 



Question of Campus Pornography Unresolved 



The issue of whether pornograph- 
ic films should be allowed to be 
shown on campus was a semeslcr- 
long controversy that resulted in de- 
bates, a referendum, court action, 
and finally a court ordered review 
board which could potentially decide 
a film's exhibition. 



In a motion brought before the 
student judiciary by Albert Sparks, 
head of Baroque Enterprises, the 
three person board ruled on Dec. 13 
that the Southwest Assembly porno 
ban was a violation of First Amend- 
ment rights. The board also suggest- 
ed a six-point procedure whereby 



Southwest could control the films 
shown in the area: 

1. Sponsors must serve notice 
(three weeks) that a film is sched- 
uled. 

2. During that period, a resident 
of Southwest may complain to the

DVP Charged with Inadequate Representation 



The Distinguished Visitor's Pro- 
gram (DVP) reconsidered and added 
several speakers after meeting with 
campus groups which charged that 
there had been an inadequate number 
of feminist and Third World speak- 
ers. 

DVP, a group partially funded by 
the Student Activity Tax, is responsi- 
ble for bringing famous speakers and 
professionals to campus. 

A group of approximately 40 peo- 
ple, representing campus women. 



Third World members, and student 
governance people met with members 
of DVP on Nov. 18. The group pro- 
tested DVP's refusal to bring four 
particular women to speak on cam- 
pus. 

In a prepared statement, the 
group charged that "the organization 
had deliberately discriminated 
against women through an arbitrary 
and sexist process of choosing speak- 
ers which is funded by Student Ac- 
tivities monies." 



Voters of Massachusetts 
Keep 'Big Business' Down 



Distrusting big government and 
worrying about jobs, the Massachu- 
setts voter defeated more radical re- 
ferenda and spoke from its wallet. 

The most crushing defeat was by 
a 6-1 margin against setting up a 
state power authority. 

The tightest race was over the 
Bottle Bill, which was also defeated 
(See related story). 

Flat electric rates were also 
soundly defeated with only 25 per 
cent of the voters favoring the propos- 
al. 

The graduated income tax was 
defeated for the fourth time in 14 
years, as 73 per cent of the turnout 
voted against the motion. 

The proposal to ban hand-guns 
was defeated by a 2-1 margin. 

Of the binding referenda, only the 
Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) 
and the absentee voting for religious 
reasons won approval of the Com- 
monwealth voting public. 



In advisory referenda, the public 
said an oil refinery was a good idea 
by a 2-1 margin, favored Sunday 
store openings, 6-5, paramutual bet- 
ting, and just in the UMass area, op- 
posed the construction of a nuclear 
power plant nearby. 

The referenda, including three 
constitutional amendments, four 
state laws proposed by initiative peti- 
tions, and two advisories, were cred- 
ited with the large turnout at the 
polls. 

Amherst did not follow the rest of 
the state. The town voted for the 
ERA, graduated income tax, absen- 
tee ballots, the Bottle Bill, fiat rate 
electricity, Sunday store openings, 
and for paramutual betting. 

Amherst voters voted against a 
state power authority, against a 
hand-gun ban, an oil refinery and a 
nuclear power plant. 



The protesters also asked that the 
Student Affairs Office and the Stu- 
dent Government Association freeze 
the DVP budget until the conflict was 
solved. 



appropriate review board. 

3. The review board would be a 
sub-committee of the Southwest As- 
sembly (SWA). 

4. With an assembly member as 
chairman, the board would reflect the 
composition of the living area. 

5. The burden of proof would lie 
with the complaintant. 

6. After a review of a disbarment, 
the SWA would have to support the 
decision with a plurality vote. 

In this way, an avenue would be 
left open for Southwest to control its 
area without depriving people of their 
First Amendment rights by prior re- 
straint. 

The board was presided over by 

Bruce Wingate and had justices 

Rosemary McCarthy and Jeffery 
Lutsky concurring. 

The board's decision pame after a 
four and a half hour deliberation be- 
tween Paul 'Vanowitch for the pros- 
ecution, and Deborah Love for the 
defense. 

Yanowitch represented Sparks, 
who, until this time, had had several 
setbacks in his attempt to exhibit por- 
nographic films. 

Sparks lost a referendum bid in 
Southwest with only four per cent of 
residents turning out to vote. A 40 
per cent favorable vote was needed by 
Sparks to reverse the porno ban. 

Since the Nov. 15 vote was non- 
binding due to low voter turnout, the 
previous porno ban stayed in effect. 

Of the 243 votes cast, 1 56 favored 
lifting the ban while 87 favored re- 
taining it. 



Bottle Bill Wins Locally, 
Defeated State-wide 



A referendum question concern- 
ing placing a five or ten cent deposit 
on beverage bottles and cans was nar- 
rowly defeated in the November elec- 
tion, but the race was not close 
enough to force a recount. 

The sixth referendum on the bal- 
lot, the Bottle Bill, was defeated 
1,220,722 to 1,201,579 statewide. 

In order to qualify for a recount, 
the difference between the two par- 
ties must be less than one half of one 
per cent of the votes cast. The Bottle 
Bill was close to 8,000 votes off, ac- 
cording to the final vote tabulations 
released by state officials Nov. 23. 

The Committee for a Massachu- 
setts Bottle Bill applied for a recount 
on Nov. 5, even though at the time, 
the bill did not qualify for a recount. 

The committee hoped that the fi- 
nal tabulation would fall within the 
legal margin. 

Their gamble failed . 

The committee tried to get State 
Secretary Paul Guzzi to conduct a 
recount if possible. 

The opponents of the bill fought 
against a recount. The Committee to 
Protect Jobs and Use of Convenience 
Containers, which spent about $1.5 
million during the campaign, was the 
chief adversary. 



This was part of a major trend 
concerning all the referenda ques- 
tions. The voters tended to distrust 
their government and worry about 
jobs. 

A last-minute media blitz by anti- 
Bottle Bill forces claimed that the bill 
would deprive the state of jobs and 
would have an adverse effect on the 
Commonwealth. 

The Bottle Bill defeat came after 
other states, Maine and Michigan, 
passes their own bills. 

One spokesperson for the pro- 
Bottle Bill forces said that the "tre- 
mendous anti-Bottle Bill campaign, 
well over a million dollars" was re- 
sponsible for the defeat 

"What it tells you is that out-of- 
state big business bought the election 
with deceptive and misleading ads," 
said Rep. Lois Pines (D-Newton), 
and another backer of the bill. 

The only other state to defeat the 
Bottle Bill was Colorado. 

Locally, Amherst went over- 
whelmingly for the bill, 8,846 -1,833. 
The aim of the bill was to control 
litter that was caused by throw-away 
beverage containers. The bill did not 
apply to dairy products, natural fruit 
juices or containers that are biode- 
grable.

Journalism Department 
Makes Break From English; 
Ziff Resigns as Head 



After years of discussion, the 
Journalistic Studies Program made a 
formal move on Nov. 20 to separate 
from the English Department. 

Lawrence Pinkham, who had 
been recently appointed head of the 
Journalistic Studies (JS) Program, 
sent a letter, signed by the five mem- 
bers of the JS faculty, to Dean Jere- 
miah M. Allen asking for separation 
from the English Department. 

Separation was accomplished 
even though the request was initially 
handed to a committee formed by 
David Clark, acting chairman of the 
English Department. 

Pinkham called the committee 
"irrelevant" and said he "refused to 
deal with it." 

The committee was formed with- 
out consulting the JS Program and 
included no JS faculty. One of the 
appointed members, Lee Edwards, 
was then on sabbatical and wasn't 
due to return to academic duties until 
the following semester. 

The three other members of the 
committee were Howard Brogan 
(chair), James Leheny, and Charles 
Moran. 

The main thrust of the letter was 
that while other departments in the 
humanities and fine arts had lost stu- 
dents, JS had gained students and 



was being limited by its connection 
with the Enghsh Department. 

The department had five full-time 
faculty members and 287 students 
enrolled, for a ratio of 18.9 students 
to one faculty member. 

The number of majors had tripled 
in the previous six semesters and the 
department is one of the ten largest in 
the College of Arts and Sciences. 

The JS Program maintained that 
the student-teacher ratio was too 
high and deprived students of needed 
instruction. The university average 
student-teacher ratio is 17.4 to one, 
and the English Department's was 
one of the lowest, 9.9 to one. 

Other complaints voiced by the 
JS Program included having no sec- 
retary, (just one work/study student) 
and inadequate supplies. 

The program began its efforts to 
separate when Howard Ziff resigned 
his post as head of the JS Program on 
Oct. 18. 

Ziff cited the administrative part 
of the job as the reason for his resig- 
nation. "Six years of paper pushing is 
enough," he said. Ziff had been 
chairman since 1970. Part of the 
problem was caused by the lack of a 
secretary and an insufficient number 
of work/study people. 



Conflict Between 
Landlords and Tenants 
is Result of Arrests 



Conflict between local apartment 
landlords and tenants erupted pro- 
ceeding the arrest of 17 persons at 
Puffton Village apartments for block- 
ing the eviction of a resident on Dec. 
1. 

Jean Cahill, an organizer of a 
Puffton Village tenants' union and an 
active supporter of rent control, was 
evicted because she allegedly kept 
dogs in her apartment. This violates 
Puffton Village policy. 

Cahill claimed that the dogs be- 
long to her daughter, who lives in 
nearby Brandywine Apartments, and 
that the Puffton management was 
aware that the animals were not hers 
and that they strayed over to her resi- 
dence. 

Cahill claims Puffton manage- 
ment is using this to evict her because 
of her involvement with the tenants' 
association and the rent control refer- 
endum. 

In previous related actions, a 
Hampshire County Superior Court 
Judge granted a preliminary injunc- 
tion on Nov. 4, barring the withhold- 
ing of rent by tenants of Colonial Vil- 
lage apartments. 

Judge John Moriarty granted the 
injunction halting the tenant union 
from stopping rent payment. 

The injunction was requested by 
Attorney Richard Howland, who re- 
presents Lewis Cohn Associates, a 
Connecticut firm which is landlord of 
the 200 unit complex. 

The tenants' union includes 130 
units of the complex. 

Attorneys for both parties said 
the reason the judge granted the in- 



junction was because the tenants' 
union had complaints about items 
such as a new lease, for which rent 
withholding is illegal. 

State law allows tenants to with- 
hold rent if they believe that their 
health is endangered due to danger- 
ous building conditions. 

Some of the health code violations 
the tenants' association claimed exist- 
ed in many apartments included 
broken hot water heaters, moldy ceil- 
ings, defective wiring, and leaky fau- 
cets. 

Before these two incidents, ten- 
ants, especially in Amherst, had tried 
to exert some control over their living 
conditions through rent control. 

Most of their efforts had been un- 
successful up to this point. 

After a rent control proposal was 
defeated in the October Amherst 
Town meeting 145-44, the Amherst 
Tenants' Association (ATA) at- 
tempted to put the question before 
the Amherst voters in the form of a 
referendum. 

The ATA succeeded in bringing 
the referendum before Amherst vot- 
ers by gathering over 7,000 signa- 
tures on petitions after the rent con- 
trol proposal was turned down by the 
Amherst Town Meeting for the 
fourth time in seven years. 

The referendum, which needed 20 
per cent voter turnout or about 2,800 
residents polled to be binding, sent 
the proposal to the state legislature 
for approval. 

The residents of Amherst went to 
the polls on Nov. 16 and defeated the 
referendum 2,566 to 1,847. 



Report Exposes Corruption 
in Boston's Combat Zone 

the report "smacked ot McCarthy- 



BOSTON - The Combat Zone, 
Boston's infamous sex shop section, 
became the center of national atten- 
tion when an internal report exposed 
corruption and incompetency in the 
area. Two days after the report, two 
Harvard football players were 
stabbed there. 

One of the players, Andrew Puo- 
polo was in a coma resulting from the 
incident until he died on Dec. 17. 

The death of Puopolo and the 
stabbing of Thomas Lincoln sparked 
a needed cleanup of the zone. 

In the report issued on Nov. 9, the 
Special Investigation Unit charged 
that the District 1 police unit, (the 
part of Boston's police force that cov- 
ers the Combat Zone, the North End, 
and China Town) let gambling and 
prostitution run rampant in the adult 
entertainment section. 

The report also charged that the 
area operation was aided and abetted 
by "corrupt inattention" by police. 

Mayor Kevin White charged that 



The report was released by then 
departing Police Commissioner Rob- 
ert DiGrazia. who was taking a high- 
er paying job within a smaller city, 
Montgomery County, Md. 

On the heels of the report. Deputy 
Supervisor Joseph Saia retired - ef- 
fective June 30, 1977. 

As the evidence mounted, more 
law enforcement officials admitted 
that there had been a failure to con- 
trol the Combat Zone. 

DiGrazia's successor, Joseph Jor- 
dan, admitted as much at his swear- 
ing-in ceremony. 

Lincoln was stabbed in the abdo- 
men and was treated at Massachu- 
setts General Hospital, where he was 
listed in good condition at the time. 

The pair had entered the adult 
entertainment section after the 
team's annual season's-end banquet, 
held at the Harvard Club.

Students as Consumers 



By Bryan Harvey 

There is considerable controversy 
nowadays over the appropriate role of 
students in the university as a whole. 
Students fill the roles of job trainees, 
administrators of much of their own 
lives, and even educators. But there is 
one point on which all concerned par- 
ties agree: students are consumers. 

Unfortunately, students are not 
consumers of tangible objects that 
can be examined before purchase and 
returned if found faulty. Students 
consume education, and education 
has always been a hard commodity to 
pin down. 

About the only way students have 
to judge the quality of an educational 
product before purchase is to rely on 
the experiences of other students. 
Somehow, students need to be able to 
compare their needs and expectations 
with the actual output of professor 
and classroom. 

For years, we relied on hearsay to 
spread the word about courses and 
teachers. Each semester, as pre-regis- 
tration rolled around, small groups of 
people could be seen in the Hatch and 
in dormitory study lounges, exchang- 
ing warnings about particularly gro- 
tesque professors and course descrip- 
tions that could never pass a "truth in 
advertising" law. 

The problem with the informal 
process is that it leaves too much to 
chance. You may decide against tak- 
ing a really good course because you 
got bad feedback from the one person 
who didn't like the class the semester 
before. Or you may wind up in a real 
gobbler because there wasn't a psych 
major around when you were picking 
out your courses. 



And so, in 1976, some people in 
the student establishment began to 
think about the idea of actually pub- 
lishing a Course and Teaching Evalu- 
ation Guide, better known as CATE. 
The idea was to take the evaluation 
forms distributed and collected by 
the university and publish them in 
summary form on a semesterly basis. 
Simple. A perfect match of supply 
and demand. Students fill out the 
evaluation forms; students get the re- 
sults back for future reference. 

However, things are not always so 
simple as they appear. The university 
refused to release the evaluation ma- 
terials, claiming that they were used 
for personnel evaluation and there- 
fore not covered by the Freedom of 
Information Act and other statutes 
which open up the operations of pub- 
lic agencies to the light of day. 

Understandably, this caused a 
great deal of frustration among the 
students who had hoped to start roll- 
ing the presses. There, practically 
within reach, was all the information 
necessary for students to make in- 
formed and reasonably intelligent de- 
cisions about what to get for their 
academic dollars. Obviously, the re- 
fusal on the part of the university to 
release the information was an openly 
hostile action. After limited debate, it 
was decided in the fall semester of 
1976 to ask students to boycott the 
university's evaluation forms. The 
logic behind this decision was simple: 
if the University refuses to share the 
wealth concerning course and teach- 
ing evaluations, then the university 
would have to learn to do without 
itself. 

Unfortunately, the evaluation 
boycott was largely a disaster. With-

out a constructive alternative plan, it 
was difficult to ask students to refrain 
from filling out evaluation forms. It 
was quite plausibly argued that pro- 
fessors would have no way of improv- 
ing their teaching if they did not have 
access to the opinions of their stu- 
dents. 

As a result, most students com- 
pleted their evaluations and watched 
them disappear into the labyrinth of 
the Provost's Office. But people did 
begin to think about the purposes be- 
hind evaluations, and the idea of al- 
lowing access to the evaluation mate- 
rial began to catch on. 

By the fajl of 1977, it was clear 
that students were going to publish 
an Evaluation Guide one way or an- 
other. 

While plans were made to collect 
the evaluation data independently if 
necessary, the SGA Presidents' Of- 
fice got readv for a court battle over 
the university's evaluation material. 

In the end, though, it is clear that 
UMass will join the other schools 
across the country that publish Eval- 
uation Guides. Some schools are 
luckier; they freely give the informa- 
tion over to the students for publica- 
tion. In some places, the university 
administration even publishes the 
guide as an official publication. 

When the Guide is finally pub- 
lished, however, it should be remem- 
bered that it is not an infallible tool. 
It reflects the opinions of only those 
people who took the time to contrib- 
ute to it; it is anonymous criticism, 
which often tends to be harsher than 
that for which one is accountable, 
and the evaluations are completed 
during a very tense time of year, 
when students and professors may 
not be feeling as kindly toward each 
other as at other times of the year. 

But in the end, there can be little 
doubt that an Evaluation Guide 
makes UMass an easier place to at- 
tend. Now, if there were only a way 
of getting your money back for a 
course that didn't turn out quite 
right.

Barrel! / QuestJOD 6 - A Senseless Defeat 



Working through the Amherst 
chapter of the Massachusetts Pubhc 
Interest Research Group (Mass- 
PIRO and the Coaliton for Envi- 
ronmental Quality (C.E.Q.), UMass 
students were leaders in the near suc- 
cessful fight to pass the Massachu- 
setts Bottle Bill, question six on the 
November ballot. 

The controversial bill, modeled on 
similar legislation in effect in Ver- 
mont and Oregon, was proposed in an 
attempt to control the proliferation of 
beverage litter within the state, re- 
duce solid wastes, and conserve ener- 
gy- 

The bill, which had been unfavor- 
ably reported on by the Committee 
on Commerce and Labor of the Gen- 
eral Court, made it to the November 
ballot only because of the efforts of 
organized support groups led by a co- 
alition of MassPIRG, C.E.Q.. The 
League of Women Voters, The Sierra 
Club, The Massachusetts Association 
of Selectmen, and the Audubon Soci- 
ety. 

Frustrated by legislative inaction, 
the groups collected some 97,000 cer- 
tified signatures by fall 1975 (twice 
the amount needed), and submitted 
them to Secretary of State, Paul 
Guzzi, in December 1975. UMass 
students collected signatures for this 
drive on campus and in the surround- 
ing cities and towns. 

Under Massachusetts law, a 
qualified initiative must first go to 
the Legislature. Once rejected, it can 
go on the ballot, only if an additional 
10,000 signatures are gathered. The 
additional signatures required were 
collected in one month. Students 
gathered many signatures at the 
UMass Toward Tomorrow Fair 



where consumer advocate Ralph 
Nader spoke on behalf of the bill. 

With the proposed law now on the 
Ballot for November 1976, the battle 
over the bill changed arenas. The leg- 
islative pressure was changed to a 
media blitz. Bottle Bill opponents 
formed a group called "The Commit- 
tee to Protest Jobs and Convenience 
Containers." Their war chest, report- 
ed to contain some two-million dol- 
lars, was put to use for advertising 
and leaflets. 

Anti-Bottle Bill labels were put 
on some beverages for sale in super- 
markets and package stores, on soda 
machines, and delivery trucks bring- 
ing soda to campus. 

T.V. and radio time was pur- 
chased. Opponents construed that 
passage of the Bottle Bill would mean 
a loss of jobs, a possible increase of up 
to $100 in annual beverage costs for a 
family, health hazards, and inconve- 
nience. 

Against the steady onslaught of 
can and bottling interests, The Com- 
mittee for a Massachusetts Bottle 
Bill, C.E.Q., and MassPIRG waged a 
counter campaign consisting of stu- 
dent speakers, information tables, 
leaflets, and press releases. Students 
distributed leaflets in their dorms and 
set up information tables in the Cam- 
pus Center. Unfortunately, the cam- 
paign lacked the glitter that money 
can buy. According to the records of 
the Campaign and Political Finance 
Office, by Sept. 15, 1976, opponents 
had spent $462,843.68. 

The Committee for a Massachu- 
setts Bottle Bill accused opponents of 
using Watergate tactics as Norman 
Stein, coordinator, complained that 
industry was distorting the possible 



impact on employment, and misusing 
an Environmental Protection Agency 
(EPA) report on the Bottle Bill in 
Vermont. 

Oregon and Vermont organized 
"Truth Squads" to speak for the Bot- 
tle Bill pointing to an 83 per cent re- 
duction in beverage litter in Oregon, 




according to Don Waggoner, a 41 
year old industrial executive, past 
president of Oregon Environmental 
Council. 

A Federal Reserve Bank study on 
Bottle Bill impact showed between 
97-1,380 jobs gained by passing the 
Bottle Bill. Brewers and bottlers 
would be encouraged to locate in the 
state, rather than ship bottles long 



distance for refilling. This would re- 
verse a trend of centralizing brewing 
operations now in effect. The report 
estimated a retail price drop, since 
half of beverage costs are in packag- 
ing. At its worst, the report said a one 
per cent price increase might occur. 

On Nov. 2, the battle reached the 
polls. UMass students worked with 
the Committee for a Massachusetts 
Bottle Bill and MassPIRG. They 
went to the polls handing out "book 
marks" for the Bottle Bill. Amherst 
voters went 8,846 YES - 1,853 NO, 
and prospects looked good as Boston 
voted for the Bottle Bill. 

The returns from economically 
depressed Lowell, New Bedford, and 
Fall River were all that was needed to 
defeat the bill. Lowell 21,000 NO - 
13,000 YES, New Bedford 24,000 
NO - 10,000 YES, Fall River 23,000 
NO - 9,000 YES. 

The Bottle Bill lost by less than 
one per cent - 207,342 YES - 228,05 1 
NO. The media blitz apparently had 
worked. 

A last glimmer of hope was seen 
in the chance for a recount. It van- 
ished after proponents collected sig- 
natures required for a recount only to 
find the vote difference was slightly 
higher than the .5 per cent which al- 
lows for a recount. 

A campaign which the Valley Ad- 
vocate estimated expended two 
dollars per vote, bought time for 
throwaways. 

Proponents pointed to victories in 
Maine and Michigan, however, and 
continued success in Oregon and Ver- 
mont. Also, the EPA plans to require 
returnables in National Parks and on 
military bases. The vote, they say, 
was a setback, not a defeat. 



efadiey/ Campaigns 



in Retrospect 



For Jimmy Carter, the late stages 
of the 1976 presidential campaign re- 
presented the worst of times after his 
string of sudden and relentless tri- 
umphs; he had seen, in late October, 
his lead in the polls continually 
shrink, and the race for the coveted 
Oval Office was rated a toss-up. 

After his primary wins and 
through three debates with Gerald 
Ford which were scored more like 
football games than a political race, 
Carter had stacked up well against 
Ford. After more than a year of 
grueling politicking, the unflappable 
Carter seemed to be gasping in the 
home stretch. It seemed only mis- 
takes by Ford would assure the presi- 
dency for Carter. 

At UMass, and around the coun- 
try, the efforts of Carter and candi- 
dates for lesser offices created a cur- 
ious irony: interest in politics had 
been stretched to its limit. Candi- 
dates were clamoring for attention of 
people made weary by what seemed 
to be endless politics. 

An abiding and concerned inter- 
est in a series of referenda questions, 
however, would help to account for 
one of the largest voter turnouts in 



the history of Massachusetts. And 
across the nation, in places where 
there was a genuine question as to 
who would win the presidential race, 
people were interested. 

The referenda questions in this 
state addressed a number of specific 
issues and more broad social con- 
cerns. The Equal Rights Amend- 
ment, the Bottle Bill, the question of 
whether the public should own power 
companies, were all heartfelt con- 
cerns. Both sides of these and other 
matters waged vigorous and visible 
campaigns. 

On the UMass campus and across 
the nation minority Republicans were 
more ardent in their political activity. 
Consigned to the role of the perennial 
underdog, they tried nonetheless, but 
managed to elect only candidates to 
office. And those two, Silvio O. Conte 
of Pittsfield and Margaret Heckler of 
Wellelsley have long sounded more 
like Democrats than Republicans. 

The Democratic Party in Massa- 
chusetts was no longer the liberal 
bastion that offered its lonely support 
to George McGovern in 1972. Jimmy 
Carter was not so much creating a 
new structure in the party as he was 



responding to a changed mood. After 
Watergate, and congressional scan- 
dals like Wayne Hays and Wilbur 
Mills, votes showed a new skepticism. 
Even George Wallace, long consid- 
ered a maverick, was considered to be 
a Democrat in good standing in 1976. 
Things had changed. 

Massachusetts had to be satisfied 
with newspaper and television ac- 
counts of the presidential race. Only 
once did either candidate visit Massa- 
chusetts, when Jimmy Carter came to 
Boston after securing the Democratic 
nomination. After that, both Ford 
and Carter left loose Massachusetts 
organizations to the hands of surro- 
gates. 

The student vote in 1976 never 
quite materialized into what pundits 
had predicted it would when 18 year 
olds got the vote in 1972. What was 
predicted to be a bloc of liberal votes 
proved to be as fickle as any other 
group that refused to be predictable. 

The most exciting and important 
prospect for Massachusetts was the 
ascenlion of Thomas P. "Tip" 
O'Neill Jr. of Cambridge to Speaker 
of the House of Representatives. He 
would, it was promised, share the 



reins of power with President Carter. 
Massachusetts would get a better 
shake than it had in the past from 
Republicans. 

For the record. Senator Edward 
M. Kennedy was easily re-elected, 
and all incumbent congressmen who 
ran also won. The only new face was 
Edward Markey of Maiden, who won 
the seat held by the late Tobert Mc- 
Donald. 

As always in Massachusetts, po- 
litical activity did not cease but as- 
sumed an ebb position. Those still in- 
terested were already making plans 
for the following year. 

The presidential race was as close 
as predicted. On election night, 
morning newspapers on the east coast 
went to press without a result, while 
wire services and television networks 
hedged and waited until a sure choice 
could be made. When Ohio was con- 
ceded to Carter by just a few thou- 
sand votes in the wee hours, eight 
years of Republican rule had ended. 
The Democrats would get what they 
wanted so badly for so long: control 
of both the Congress and the execu- 
tive. 

It would be a test in history to see 
how they handled that prospect. 



Trustees 
Return to 
Amherst 



The UMass Board or Trustees 
discussed faculty unionization in its 
November meeting here, the first at 
the Amherst campus since the pre- 
vious April meeting which drew 
some 800 demonstrators. 

"The trustees felt there should be 
a cooling-off period," Board Chair- 
man Joseph P. Healy said. 

The board expressed reluctance to 
return to the Amherst campus follow- 
ing the April meeting when two stu- 
dents were slightly injured during 
scuffles with demonstrators. 

In August, the board decided to 
return here. It had been meeting in 
Government Center in Boston while 
the regular rotation of locations was 
suspended. 

At the return meeting in Memori- 
al Center, Healy said the board op- 
posed faculty unionization because it 
"might put the board in an adversary 
position." 

"If given the choice, we lean to- 
ward governance rather than collec- 
tive bargaining," he said. 

Chancellor Randolph W. Bro- 
mery told trustees the administration 
is responsible to "insure the largest 
number of persons vote in the unioni- 
zation elections, so that 100 persons 
do not decide the elections." 

The December elections for facul- 
ty of UMass Boston and Amherst 
campuses called for a vote for "no- 
agent" or collective bargaining repre- 
sentation by either the Massachusetts 
Society of Professors or the Ameri- 
can Association of University Profes- 
sors. 

Bromery said the bargaining unit 
would represent professors, part-time 
faculty, librarians, staff assistants, 
and the staff associates. 

The Board also adopted the Gov- 
ernance Document for the UMass 
Medical School at Worcester, and ac- 
cepted the Bus Storage Facility, the 
addition to the infirmary, the Gra- 
duate Research Center II, and the 
Fine Arts Center as complete in ac- 
cordance with plans and specifica- 
tions. 

Chancellor Roger Bulger of 
UMass Worcester said the accredita- 
tion of the Worcester Medical School 
had become official. 

The meeting was scheduled at 
Amherst because there was a better 
atmosphere for more cordial meet- 
ings between students and trustees 
according to Healy. 

In the previous meeting in Am- 
herst, about 800 students demon- 
strated outside the University Li- 
brary. Trustees were meeting on the 
26th floor of the library and UMass 
police were barring students from the 
meeting. 

Students were opposed to a trust- 
ee agenda item which called for the 
transfer of funds from a Residential 
Hall Trust Fund to purchase 8.8 
acres of land near Fraternity-Soror- 
ity Park. 




SGA Co-President Jay Martus is in attendance at a meeting of the UMass Board of Trustees in 
Memorial Hall. The Trustees had stated the previous spring that they would not meet again on the 
Amherst campus, but apparently changed their minds. 



Students Arraigned For Larceny 



In an effort to crack down on 
thefts in the University Store, seven 
students were brought before the 
Hampshire District Court on Nov. 3. 

Six students were given continu- 
ances with no finding for larceny un- 
der $100, and the seventh, David Sil- 
bert, was found guilty after he pro- 
tested the high cost of court fees. 

The freshman from Pierpont Dor- 
mitory objected to high court cost 
and Judge Luke F. Ryan changed his 
decision from a continuance to guilty. 

Silbert admitted under oath to 
taking the merchandise without pay- 
ing for it. Silbert also said afterwards 
that he would seek counsel and ap- 
peal the finding. 



Genevieve Keller, the assistant 
clerk of courts, said the large number 
of larcenies on campus might be the 
reason why the assessment for court 
fees was much higher at the trial. 

Kellier said that Ryan usually 
charges $25 to $50 for court fees. 

Despite the high court costs, Kel- 
ler said the court gives them special 
consideration because of their age 
and the fact that they are attending 
school. 

Ryan's purpose throughout the 
trial was to defer further thefts. 

"We must stop this rash of larce- 
ny on the UMass campus," Ryan 
said. "If we can't stop it today, then 



we will have to start giving out jail 
sentences." 

However, neither Ellis Landset or 
Jim Starr of the Legal Services Of- 
fice, attorneys for the defendants, 
were pleased with the fee assess- 
ments. 

The students given continuances 
were Steven Acerbi, Carlos R. Vegas, 
Laurel J. Goss, Wendell G. Kearns, 
Joseph C. Mellow, and Michael G. 
Perkins. 

The items stolen from the Univer- 
sity Store ranged in price from $3.48 
to $24.36. 

The maximum penalties for petty 
larceny are a one year jail sentence, a 
$300 fine or both. 



Student Dies From Self-inflicted Gunshot Wound 



A junior marketing major was 
found dead in his room on the morn- 
ing of Saturday, Dec. 1 1. 

Death was the result of a self- 
inflicted gunshot wound to the head. 

He was discovered by a suitemate 
who was concerned about his friend's 
well-being. 

Kelly G. Carson, 20, from Clarks- 
burg, Mass., had been dead for "at 
least 24 hours" in 03B McNamara 
House before he was found. 

The suitemate, whose identity re- 
mained confidential throughout the 
investigation, looked into Carson's 
room from outside his window, 
climbed into the room through the 
window, opened the door and called 
the police. 

Police received the call at 1:13 
A.M. and Sgt. Phillip J. Cavanaugh, 
UMass Department of Public Safety 
detective chief and head of the inves- 



tigation, said Carson was dead at the 
scene. 

Exact time of the death CQuld not 
be determined because no one in the 
dormitory heard the gunshot. 

It was the first suicide on campus 
since May, 1975, when David B. Hal- 
pin leapt from the top of the universi- 



ty library during a spring day cele- 
bration. 

Carson had celebrated his 20th 
birthday less than two weeks before 
he took his own life. 

Carson was a 1974 honors gra- 
duate of Drury High School, North 
Adams. 



Janitor Convicted of Theft 



William P. Smith, former head 
custodian of the UMass Fine Arts 
Center pleaded guilty to charges of 
theft of over $20,000 worth of equip- 
ment from the building over a three 
year period. 

Sentenced in early December, the 
34 year old Granby resident was or- 
dered to serve up to a year in Hamp- 
shire County House of Correction 
and serve two years probation. 



Tried in Hampshire County Su- 
perior Court, Judge John F. Moriarty 
pronounced the sentence. 

The robberies were discovered 
when a Leominster man contacted 
the manufacturer of a tape unit for 
accessory parts. The $8,000 eight- 
track stereo tape unit had been sold 
to the man by Smith. 

The system was one of only two 
such units on the East Coast, both of 
which are located in Amherst. 



Kappa Sig Harrassment Proves Dangerous 



The pent-up animosity between 
Kappa Sigma Fraternity and Gor- 
man House dormitory resulted in an 
investigation by the dean of students 
and dominated the front page of the 
Collegian on Dec. 6. 

Robert L. Woodbury, vice-chan- 



cellor of student affairs, requested 
that William F. Field, dean of stu- 
dents, investigate carefully incidents 
reported by residents of Gorman 
which allegedly occured between the 
two living quarters. 

The fraternity had denied all but 



one allegation made by Gorman. 

The two buildings abut on Butter- 
field Terrace in Central Area. 

One accusation the fraternity ad- 
mitted to took place on Sept. 17, 
when its members threw oranges, ap- 
ples, pears, beer bottles, and rocks 




Kappa Sigma Fraternity was in the news after residents of adjacent Gorman dormitory complained 
of numerous hazardous and annoying outbursts and pranks by the fraternity. 



through Gorman's closed windows. 

Kappa Sigma sent a letter of apol- 
ogy to the Gorman head of residence 
for that incident. 

The university took no action be- 
cause the Gorman head of residence 
went to Dean Field on Oct. 4, almost 
three weeks after the occurrence. 

Field said no specific identifica- 
tions were given, and he could not 
suspend unnamed people. 

Other unsubstantiated reports in- 
dicated two more throwing incidents 
on Nov. 20 and Dec. 1. 

In the Nov. 20 incident, a beer 
bottle narrowly missed the head of a 
sleeping counselor and scattered sli- 
vers of glass in his hair. 

The fraternity also awakened the 
residence hall at 6 a.m. on Nov. 29 by 
whistling, yelling, screaming, and 
shouting obscenities. 

Kappa Sigma was also accused of 
assaulting a dorm resident who was 
parking his car in front of the frater- 
nity. 

Breaking of a chandelier during a 
Gorman Halloween party was also 
said to have been the result of Kappa 
Sigma actions. 

Female residents were reportedly 
harassed late at night by fraternity 
men holding live mice in front of 
them after knocking on their doors. 

Public urination was the one issue 
that Field dealt with, but did not have 
enough information to make a ruling. 



Blaze Damages Fine Arts Center's Rand Theatre 



A fire partially damaged a small 
area in the Rand Theater in the 
UMass Fine Arts Center (FAC) on 
Wednesday, Nov. 22. 

The fire broke out at 10:12 a.m. 
when a piece of welder's slag hit and 
ignited polyurethane foam fiber used 
in the theater. 

The slag is metal that comes in 
strips which welders melt down and 
use as a sealer. 

The welders were constructing a 
set for an upcoming production, ac- 
cording to a spokesman for the Fine 
Arts Center. 



Amherst firemen responded to 
the alarm, but the sprinkler system 
extinguished the conflagration while 
firemen were en route to the scene. 

A building official said that the 
sprinkler system put out the fire in 
nine and a half minutes and exuded 
65 gallons of water. 

"An average of seven (gallons) 
per minute," the spokesman said. 

The fire resulted in smoke and 
water damage from the sprinklers. 

There was minimal damage to the 
theatre, and clean up operations took 



Turner Acquitted of Vandalism 



Brian G. Turner was found inno- 
cent of throwing a glass object out of 
his room window on the 13th fioor of 
George Washington Tower. 

The decision, from Northampton 
District Court on Nov. 3, cleared 
Turner from any connection with an 
Oct. 1 1 incident when a bottle fell 
into a parking lot adjacent to the dor- 
mitory. 

Turner was seen looking out his 
window by James Morton, an Institu- 
tional Protection Man. 

Turner claimed he was fixing his 
screen when he heard the sound of 
glass breaking below, which is when 
Morton saw him. 

A previous resident of the room, 
Thomas Lonergan, testified that 
when he had the room, from January 



to May of 1974, strong gusts of wmd 
would knock the screen off its runner. 

Prosecuting Attorney Frank Col- 
lins tried to impress on Judge A.J. 
Morse that Turner saw Morton giv- 
ing out a ticket and decided to throw 
a missile at him. 

This strategy failed. 

Turner's trial came after the uni- 
versity took a "get tough" stance 
against falling objects from South- 
west high rise dormitories. 

Steven Rodman, a UMass stu- 
dent, had been knocked unconscious 
when he was hit with an object 
thrown from a tower and spent three 
days in the infirmary. A ten pound 
weight had smashed the windshield 
of a car parked below Washington 
Tower. 



place immediately. New sprinkler 
heads were installed within two hours 
after the fire. 

The Fine Arts Center, opened in 
1975, had been approved by state and 



local fire officials according to a FAC 
spokesman. 

He also said the Fine Arts Center 
has the best fire-proofing equipment 
on campus. 




Even though students campaigned vigorously in favor of a Massa- 
chusetts Bottle Bill, the referendum was defeated by a narrow 
margin in this state. 




The sixth annual Madrigal Dinner was held in the Campus Center 
Auditorium during the Christmas Season. 



Sunday Store Openings 

Remain in Limbo, Laws Unchanged 



Opening and doing business on 
Sunday became a source of contro- 
versy in the state of Massachusetts at 
the height of the Christmas season. 

What started with a few scattered 
stores in Western Massachusetts re- 
maining open on the last Sunday in 
November changed to many stores 
statewide remaining open for busi- 
ness on the last weekend before 
Christmas. 

Two Zayre department store 
managers were charged with violat- 
ing the Sunday closing laws, com- 
monly known as the blue laws. 

The two managers from Spring- 
field and Agawam were charged with 
violating the code while over two doz- 
en stores were open in the Eastfield 
Mall in Springfield. 

Local police enforcement was se- 
lective as both Governor Michael S. 
Dukakis and Attorney General Fran- 
cis X. Bellotti both said enforcement 
was up to local authorities. 

Part of this was based on the fact 
that a non-binding referendum was 
passed in November which showed 
the voters approved of stores being 
open on Sunday. 

Besides Springfield, King's was 
open in Lenox and the Zayre store in 
Attleboro also operated. Neither 
were disturbed by police. 

Zayre's in Fall River, however, 
did not open due to fear of police 
action. 

Zayre proceeded to take the case 
before the judicial system as more 
and more stores opened their doors on 
successive weekends. 

After the second straight week 
the two Zayre stores were open, the 



two managers were charged with 1 1 
violations of the blue laws. 

The reason the managers cited for 
opening on Sunday was that the 
stores were losing customers to Con- 
necticut stores. The neighboring state 
had recently tossed out similar Sun- 
day closing laws. 



Gilmore Pushes 
For Execution 



SALT LAKE CITY - An ad- 
mitted murderer gained national at- 
tention in his attempt to become the 
first United States convict to receive 
capital punishment in ten years. 

Gary Gilmore, 35, was convicted 
in October 1976 for the murder of 
motel clerk Bennie Bushnell. At his 
sentencing hearing, he admitted to 
the charges. 

Gilmore also was charged with 
the murder of a service station atten- 
dent, which occured the night before 
the Bushnell murder, but the trial in 
that case was postponed indefinitely. 

The parolee from Oregon would 
have been just another body on 
Utah's Death Row if it wasn't for his 
unusual actions. 

Gilmore asked to be sent before 
the firing squad, asked to marry Ni- 
cole Barrett, made and essayed to 
carry out a suicide pact with Barrett, 
and called the Utah Board of Pardons 
"cowards" for not ordering him put 
to death. 

Gilmore was unanimously de- 
clared guilty by a district court jury 
of Bushnell's death and sentenced to 
death. 

When Gilmore's court-appointed 
lawyers appealed the decision, Gil- 
more fired them. 

The attorneys appealed anyway, 
but Gilmore countered bv sending in 
a hand-carried letter that asked the 
judge to ignore any appeals made in 
his behalf. 

Lawyers not representing Gil- 
more were the biggest obstacle in his 
attempt to be the first American 
killed under capital punishment since 
1967. 

Attorneys Robert VanSciver and 



Gilbert Athay asked the Utah Su- 
preme Court to stay the execution on 
the grounds that it would have an 
adverse effect on appeals of two unre- 
lated cases involving the death penal- 
ty- 
Later VanSciver dropped his ef- 
forts to stay the execution but the 
American Civil Liberties Union 
joined in an attempt to prevent the 
killing. 

Gilmore next surprised the world 
when he asked Barrett, a 20-year-old 
divorcee and mother of two, to marry 
him on the day he was scheduled to 
die, Nov. 15. 

After Utah's governor stayed the 
execution, Gilmore asked Barrett to 
marry him. 

The couple had been discussing 
marriage since July. 

The next day, both Gilmore and 
Barrett attempted suicide. Gilmore 
downed 10 or 20 Seconal tablets 
while Barrett swallowed two vials of 
sleeping tablets. Both survived an ap- 
parent suicide pact. 

Gilmore had to be force-fed dur- 
ing his recovery as he pulled out in- 
travenous medicine tubes and took 
other defiant acdons. 

Before appearing before the Utah 
Board of Pardons on Nov. 30, Gil- 
more sent a letter, both profane and 
terse, that asked to die. 

Calling the board "cowards" for 
not ordering his death, Gilmore 
wrote, "I do not seek or desire your 
clemency." "Not" was underlined 
three times. 

In the letter, Gilmore began by 
addressing the board with obscenities 
in order to give the board "good rea- 
son for killing me." 




As winter approaches, the moon overlooks a quiet campus.

I, 



he painted red letters screamed "WHO IS WILLOUGHBY SHARP?" across the white walls in 
the Student Union Art Gallery. The artist sat on a bed at the back of the room. The bed had no 
mattress. The artist had no clothes. 



Infamous conceptual artist Willoughby 
Sharp had arrived in Amherst to deliver 
his one-man showing, "interrogation." 

The windows of the gallery were cov- 
ered with old Collegians, leaving but a 
small opening to allow the protuberance 
of a closed-circuit television facing out 
of the room towards campus. 

Willoughby sat on the bed, his right 
hand chained to the bedpost by police 
regulation handcuffs, his left hand occu- 
pied with chainsmoking marijuana ciga- 
rettes. 

Flood lights partially blinded him as six 
accomplices hovered nearby, laden with 
assorted audio visual equipment. Near 
the opening into the room sat a prodi- 
gious block of white plaster atop which 
rested a foot-long piece of black rubber 
hose. 

Outside the gallery, students waited to 
be allowed to enter the inner sanctum of 
Willoughby Sharp's new home for the 
length of his three-day November visit. 
Students entered a waiting chamber one 
by one, where they could observe by 
way of two closed-circuit televisions, 
Willoughby's joint-clenching hand and 
the rubber hose. Prospective partici- 
pants were asked to write their initial 
reactions down in a notebook resting on 
a table. 

Upon word from within, the students 
were allowed to "interrogate" the artist. 
Few used the rubber hose for abusive 
ends, as they were asked to. 

"The rubber hose was to stimulate 
their innermost aggressive urges," the 
artist explained, "yet had any of them 
actually approached me with it, and 
electric eye beam set up directly in front 
of the bed would be set off producing an 
intimidating bell sound." Willoughby's 



pieces deal with the dichotomy of ag- 
gression and repression. The good and 
bad in us all. He tries to create a situation 
in which the person will be confronted 
with emotional response as well as men- 
tal reaction. 

The purpose of the piece was "any- 
thing you want it to be; art is what you 
make it. Essentially what I do with video 
performance is transfer my life energies 
into my video components." 

To the students who came to see him, 
Willoughby Sharp was an interesting fac- 
et to an otherwise uninteresting day. 
"The man has a message," said one 
anonymous Art major. "I have agreat 
deal to learn about my emotions. The 
university has given me a cynical air. He 
has given me a breath of fresh air." 

A group of three men stood at the 
door after their initial encounter, "jesus, 
no clothes, he had no clothes on," re- 
peated one. "Well, we paid $40,000 for 
that hunk of metal in front of the Fine 
Arts Center, so $300 for that hunk in 
there isn't all that outrageous," said his 
companion. 

"Neither was he," capped the third. 

The 40-year-old artist said he has been 
heavily influenced by French and Ger- 
man artists of the modern age. One of 
his German favorites recently conducted 
a piece in France in which an all-white 
costumed string quartet plays to six na- 
ked women who simultaneously roll 
themselves in blue paint and press their 
bodies upon large white canvasses. 

After leaving UMass, Willoughby con- 
fined himself to a 12 x 12 x 8 box within 
an art building. For three weeks, he cre- 
ated situations for passersby to view by 
way of video screen. Reading, getting 
high, making love for the reaction of 



thousands. 

Although he insists that "everyone is 
an individual" and "the good artist will 
rise above categories," Willoughby has 
been referred to as a conceptual artist 
and compared to Chris Burden, best 
known for crucifying himself atop a 
Volkswagen, and to Christo, who made 
headlines with his controversial 24-mile 
"Running Fence" in California. Christo's 
work was featured during the fall in the 
Fine Arts Center Art Gallery. 

Willoughby insists that he is a pioneer. 
"Anyone who is using video now is a 
pioneer," he said. 

A group of these video pioneers from 
the Rhode Island School of Design called 
the Electron Movers, came to the Stu- 
dent Union Art Gallery in February. 

The three-week show featured the 
video works of eight artists, including a 
live performance in which a tap dancer, 
filmed from four different angles, was 
shown on four different screens. 

The Student Video Project, funded by 
the Student Government Association, 
also presented students with their pio- 
neering work in "do-it-yourself-televi- 
sion," which included a documentary on 
the Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant site 
occupation and UMass' own soap opera, 
"The Strife of Life." 

Video artists say the beauty of their 
medium is the ability to manipulate and 
distort the image, as well as the ability to 
re-use the tape in the same way that 
audio recording tape is "recycled." 
However, according to Willoughby 
Sharp, the image can be erased from the 
tape but not from the mind of the view- 
er. "You will never forget meeting me," 
he said, "it will be forever videotaped 
upon your mind." \^ 



NOVEMBER/DECEMBER/89 



A 

TALK 

WITH 

ALWIN 

NIKOLAIS 



During the time that the Nikolais 
Dance Theatre performed here in 
March of 1977 I was fortunate enough to 
personally meet Alwin Nikolais — the 
creative genius and artistic director of 
his company. 

Looking like the "Wizard of Oz," Ni- 
kolais has in fact been proclaimed by 
many crtics as a wizard and "chief pup- 
peteer" in his innovative and unortho- 
dox approaches to dance. A Nikolais 
performance gives the visual impression 
of an abstract painting which he illumi- 
nates by extravagant lighting, costumes, 
and backdrop slides. 

In describing his movements, he said, 
"To be conscious of a motion, you must 
see or feel it. The instrument in a dance 
motion is the human body in the form of 
a three-dimensional form of a mobile, 
capable of taking on thousands of 
shapes. The body takes on a skill of 
sculpting by the dancer — who must 
shape himself correctly to the act." 




In 1952, Nikolais went into an explo- 
ration of the male and female sex roles 
assigned by Victorian morality in creat- 
ing his new works. The result was the 
debut of the Nikolais "Unisex Dancer," 
his design emphasizing the anonymity of 
the person raised to a higher level of 
transcendence. 

To enhance this effect, the dancers 




frequently wear faceless masks and fig- 
ure-alienating uni-tards (leotards and 
tights sewn together.) Nikolais believes 
that man is related to the supernatural; 
behaving as an automan while viewing 
dance as a participation of life. 

A favorite Nikolais theme reflects "the 
effects of the dynamic overlording of 
mankind and nature, his fight to live and 
not to 'defile himself.' A redefinition 
through a belief in the environment 
sweeping through you and causing it to 
be a part of you — your identity mingles 
within." His visions of dance are a 
"merging of the arts, which tend to give 
dance a strong visual emphasis," hence 
his assuming the dual roles of sculptor 
and painter in his perceptions. 

He stated that in his designs he uses 
"artists, not simply hack dancers, and the 
work that I create requires a choice of 
how to do actions. The artist must make 
a decision about how to make a ges- 
ture." 

He described dance as being a motion 
content in itself without the need to car- 
ry on another function or event, and be- 
ing a simple art it can be brought to earth 
in things you do. "Young people should 
see art and its related forms as a necessity 
of life, not just a "cultural experience" to 
enrich their lives. They should incorpo- 
rate art into themselves and in living."

Cole Porter's KISS ME KATE 




Student-Run 
Theater 



"Brush up your Shakespeare 



From its humble conception in 1936, 
when the University Men's and Wom- 
en's Glee Clubs joined with the Univer- 
sity Orchestra to produce Gilbert and 
Sullivan's operetta, "TRIAL BY JURY," 
the UMass Music Theatre Guild has pro- 
duced 57 musicals and now presents two 
musical productions each year. 

Using Five College talent with or with- 
out prior theatre experience, and with-

out assistance from the University's the- 
atre department, the Guild is a student 
group that provides teaching and learn- 
ing experiences for many students. 

The only university group devoted 
exclusively to the production of musical 
theatre, the UMass Music Theatre Guild 
celebrated its 41st birthday by present- 
ing Cole Porter's KISS ME KATE and 
GODSPELL. 

Another theatre group on campus 
with a long history is the Roister Doister 
Drama Society. 

In 1910, the Massachusetts Agricultur- 
al College Dramatic Society was formed. 
Two years later, with the production of 
Nicholas Udall's 1852 play, RALPH ROIS- 
TER DOISTER, they became the Roister 
Doisters. 

This oldest of dramatic societies in the 
nation has presented an average of three 
plays a year since then, with women fi- 
nally performing with the group in 1920 
in its production of WITCHING HOURS. 

Originally acting under professorial 
supervision, the Roister Doisters are now 
an entirely student-run group. 

The group presented FLOWERS FOR 
ALGERNON this year, and also spon- 
sored the Bay Colony Concert Com- 
pany's production of SHAKESPEARE ON 
SHAKESPEARE.

The word imbroglio means confusion. Don't you get the feeling 
this place is in a constant state of confusion?" 

"I'll have to agree with you there. This business with the 
computer, OSCAR, is incredible. Imagine having to take a 
minimum of 12 credits per semester." 

"Hey . . . just because you try to get away with as few as 
possible ..." 

"Okay, I get the message. Anyway, pretty soon we'll have to 
pick out courses for next semester, it's almost time for pre- 
registration. I must say I'm really dreading it. This fall, half of 



the courses I wanted to take were either oversubscribed or 
cancelled. One negative thing about this place I'll never get 
used to is the red tape. You have to see three people for 
signatures for everything!" 

"That's true, it really is a major hassle around here." 

"Well, let's take a look at what we've covered here so far. 
Have you kept your notes up to date?" 

"I certainly have, Chris - and we've covered a helluva lot of 
territory already." 

In reviewing our notes, we had explored a great variety of the 






94/BOOK II 






campus' offerings. Chris had found information on the School 
of Business, Engineering, College of Food and Natural Re- 
sources, and the School of Health Sciences. I had information 
on the School of Education, Physical Education, and BDIC. 
The findings were very interesting. 

The School of Business was overcrowded, as might be ex- 
pected in this day and age. As Chris put it, "the American 
Dream in action." What motivates students in the School of 
Business? One logical guess was the hope for a financially 
sound future job. The school offers major programs in Ac- 



counting, General Business and Finance, Management, and 
Markedng. All very useful courses. And all very crowded. 

t**********'H:y^****Ht****1f ********** 

One rainy afternoon (and there were many, it seemed to rain 
constantly in the fall) Chris declared he had found the answer. 

"I think I've found a key factor in our search for motivation. 
In lab today, a woman engineering student helped me out. I 
was desperate. I don't know why I have to take these courses. 
I'm a grad in Sociology and I'm flunking engineering."

"Chris, you consider that an answer? Besides, no one said 
you had to take it for a grade, but you can do anything, right?" 

"Unfair reproach. What I mean is today, I was helped by a 
woman - in engineering! That's practically unheard of at home. 
She told me that there were a few prejudices, but she found it 
to be a creative and interesting field. She said she would even 
write up her views on the matter for our research." 

"Well, that's a positive accomplishment, but I don't think it's 
the answer to our problem."

ment. There is a unique feature in that the faculty for all of the 
major programs are drawn from the three divisions of the 
college: research, resident teaching, and extension. There are 
numerous major programs in this school - after all, with the 
renewed and now ever-present concern for the environment, 
this will always be an open field. 

The School of Health Science offers programs in Nursing, 
Public Health, Medical Technology, Health Laboratory Sci- 
ence, and Communications Disorders. This department has 
had its share of troubles, but there is perennial concern for 



public health. Nursing is very competitive - it really does take 
"intrinsic motivation" to last in the program. 

We also found out a number of interesting things about the 
School of Education. Here, it is committed to developing an 
alternative education program to address significant educa- 
tional issues in contemporary American society. It must take a 
lot of drive to be a teacher - even before student teaching, 
there's volunteer work to keep a person busy. For example, a 
woman in our dorm was always busy making things for her 
classroom. She was so creative . . . and motivated. The kind of

teacher that is needed now more than ever. The School of 
Education also offers programs in Early Childhood, Agricul- 
tural Education and Bilingual/Bicultural Education. 

In today's body conscious society, there was certainly 
enough to interest students of Physical Education. Exercise 
Science, Professional Preparation in Physical Education, and 
Sport Studies were offered. In Exercise Science, exercise and 
rehabilitation for the handicapped are taught. Chris and I felt 
there must be a great deal of inner satisfaction in the knowl- 
edge of helping others in this way. We also discussed the 



motivation of attaining physical excellence in this course of 
study. 

My last area of research during this semester was the BDIC 
Program. I had never heard of anything like it before. Bache- 
lor's Degree with Individual Concentration, providing an in- 
credible opportunity for any student interested in an individ- 
ualized education. The program usually begins in the junior 
year (it is a four-semester program) and must have an interdis- 
ciplinary concentration, while making full use of university

resources. I met a student who had had five majors - ranging 
from Biology to Theatre. The last time I saw him, he was 
majoring in Human Sexuality. In this course of study, the 
student is responsible for developing his/her own program in 
conjunction with a faculty sponsor. A student wishing to have a 
BDIC major must begin the process in the sophomore year - in 
order to allow for four semesters of work. 

Maybe that was one of the answers. What better motivation 
than being able to create your very own individualized major?

Chris and I felt we had accomplished a great deal during the 
fall semester. The time went by so quickly - there was so much 
to do. And then suddenly, finals were upon us, or maybe I 
should say upon Chris. He had at least 8, not counting the ones 
he had "arranged" not to take. I didn't have any to study for. 
I felt sorry for him and all the others gathered for all-nighters 
in the dorm study lounge. I noticed that the correlation be- 
tween exams and motivation seemed to rise sharply around 
finals time. Everyone was locked in their rooms or at the 
library. The floor was unusually quiet - no stereos blasting, no

dents to develop and pursue the specific 
fields of interest they want to follow. Th 
student designs a proposal to justify the 
dividuality of the program, and then sets 
his or her own requirement of necessary V 
classes. 

I One of the more common areas of inti" 
est found at BDIC is that of human sexi 
and counseling. Due to the lack of an ade- ^ 
?quate counseling program at the universi 
many students have opted to design their 
program of study in the area. Many of t 
classes are in the departments of psycho! 
sociology, human development, communf 
studies, and the School of Education. 

The counseling major has quite a few 
tions available. Concentration within the| 
may vary between work with handicappe 
mentally retarded persons, crisis center w( 
mental health and career counseling, to 
tion a few. Many pursue specialization ir 
field through actual "on the job" work vi_ , 
internships and independent studies. These 
options are much more easily achieved d 
to the flexibility of BDIC, and have pro> 
to be a valuable educational tool for the< 
counseling major. 

On campus, there are many places wh . 
the counseling major can put these new-foun 
tools to work. There are paid and volunteer ', 
counseling positions available at Room to 
Move, Community Development Center, and 
Mental Health. Many of the BDIC counselin; 
majors work in the BDIC office in GoodeU. 
helping other prospective students. M 

If you're serious about your field of stira^ . 
then BDIC can be an exciting, challenging o 
tion. It won't be easy, but it should be fun.

I couldn't wait for intersession, then we'd have time to see 
some sights around New England. I just wished it wasn't so 
cold. I wasn't used to having to wear four layers of clothing just 
to walk to class without being frostbitten. It was too quiet to 
stay in the dorm, besides, there was no one to talk to, everyone 
was entrenched in their work. I decided to take a walk over to 
the snack bar and get some hot chocolate. When I got there, 
the place was bustling. Almost every table was taken with 
groups of students asking each other questions, or pouring over 



textbooks. Even the pin-ball machines were going full tilt (sor- 
ry). The holiday decorations seemed oddly out of place in this 
environment - it was hard to believe Christmas was just a few 
days away - and there was so much left to do in that short time. 
I got an Excedrin headache just thinking about all of the 
end-of-semester details Chris and I still had left to finish. The 
juke box was blasting out "Show Me the Way." That's just 
what I wanted - someone to show me the way out of here until 
the spring. I had had enough of school for a while. I guess 
personally, I was getting low on intrinsic movitation.

a sporting eye view 
of aiternative atliletics 




When people think of 
UMass athletics, they usually 
think of all the popular sports 
such as football, basketball, 
gymnastics, lacrosse or 
baseball. 

After all, those are the 
sports which receive the 
most publicity. 

Those sports also are able 
to offer its top freshman 
recruits scholarships in order 
to build a winning team. 
However, that is the case 
with only a couple of sports 
at UMass. Not every team 
receives thousands of dollars 
from the Athletic Department 
and neither does every team 
have the opportunity to offer 
scholarships. 

Unfortunately, what most 
people fail to realize is that 
there is another side to the 
UMass Athletic Department, 
which offers university 
students an alternative to 
varsity competition. 

The UMass Athletic 
Department offers university 
students a chance to 
participate on such teams as 
the rugby club, crew, water 
polo, frisbee, judo and 
bowling teams. 

One has to admit, these 
aren't everyday sports, but 
they all have a loyal following 
and they serve as an 
alternative means of athletic 
participation to over a 1,000 
students. 

These club teams are 
supported financially by 
matching funds from the 
Athletic Department. The club 
members raise whatever 
money they can and the 
department will match that 
figure. 

Few people know about 
these teams of hard-working 
women and men and fewer 
people know that the 
university has some of the 
best club teams in the 
country. Herewith are some 
of UMass' "alternative 
athletics."

The concept of the Intramu- 
ral program is not to emulate 
the intercollegiate program. It 
is the purpose of the Intramu- 
ral program to provide a vari- 
ety of competitive sports ac- 
tivities for men and women. 

The program is free and vol- 
untarily open to all students. 

The philosophy of the pro- 
gram is to add to the total edu- 
cation of the individual both 
mentally and physically. 

From a recreational view- 
point, participation in the Intra- 
mural program enhances a stu- 
dent's leisure time. Every at- 
tempt is made to organize pro- 
grams which are both competi- 
tive and fun. 

In 1976-77, approximately 
10,000 students participated in 
the men's and women's com- 
petitive sports and co-recrea- 
tional sports programs. It is im- 
possible to record individual 
student participants for open- 
play recreational activities, but 
there were an estimated 
80,000 participations last year. 

It is doubtful if any other vo- 
luntary program can equal the 
UMass Intramural program in 
terms of numbers of partici- 
pants.

Three-thousand feet above 
le ground. It is cramped and 
)isy. I am beginning to have 
icond thoughts about this 
hole idea: for the first time I 
lalize that I could kill myself. 
My right hand covers the rip- 
jrd on my reserve chute, as I 
ave been taught. Vividly I re- 
lember my instructor telling 
le, "You would be in real trou- 
e if that reserve chute 
Dened inside the plane." 
The plane circles the landing 
jid. Through non-verbal signs, 
le jump master instructs the 
lot where to steer the craft to 
t out the first jumper. 
I will be the first jumper. 
The door opens. With the 
ane's motor roaring, speech 
almost useless. The jump 
laster has hooked up my stat- 
-line to the floor of the plane 
nd he insists that I double- 
heck it myself. 



As my right leg exits the 
plane in search of the landing 
wheel, I discover quickly that 
this entire endeavor was not 
going to be as easy as it was in 
practice far below. 

Outside of the plane I am 
standing with my right leg dan- 
gling in space. My hands cling 
to the wing strut-desperately. 

Unmistakably, the word 
comes. 

"GO!" 
I jump to my right and in an 
instant the plane is gone. 

"One thousand, two thou- 
sand, three thousand, four 
thousand, five thousand, six 
thousand . . .!" 

I had been taught to contin- 
ue the count until six, but at 
three the chute has opened. 

Check the canopy. Is there a 
malfunction? If so, is it a time 
malfunction or a no-time mal- 
function? 



I look up. No line-over. No 
Mae West. No streamer. I try to 
recollect all those other slang 
terms for sky-diving disasters, 
but none apply. I think I'm go- 
ing to make it . . . 

Minutes later, the ground is 
upon me. I make some mis- 
takes in maneuvering my chute 
and land ever so slightly off-tar- 
get-on a cement runway. I am 
cut on the right knee, but am 
basically uninjured. 

In a word, my first jump was 
different. One student said, "It 
is a feeling that is unmatched 
by anything else with the possi- 
ble exception of making ba- 
bies." 

Most jumpers will give you a 
vivid description of their first 
jump, such as I have done, but 
they cannot really give you an 
accurate understanding of the 
feeling. For each individual it is 
different. 



Each individual has his own 
reason for wanting to jump, 
too. "It's something I always 
wanted to try, just so I can say I 
did it," is often heard at Turner 
Falls Airport, home of the 
UMass Skydiving Club. Other 
skydivers talk of their first jump 
as being the result of a bet or a 
dare; some speak of the im- 
pression made (or not made) 
on their friends. 

Haven't you ever thought 
about it? Considering every- 
thing, chances are that you 
have. And if you would like to 
take that first jump, the mere 
fact that you belong to the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts can 
make it a reality. 

Give it a try. Skydiving is 
much safer than most people 
think it is. 

- Stephen Buckley 



alternative athletics/ 113 



Sports reporting, more than 
any other mode of recording 
and analyzing the activities of 
human beings, is 
characterized by a strong 
penchant for categorization 
and the frequent use of 
superficial descriptive words 
from which readers are 
expected to derive the same 
meanings. 
Thus, it would be easy, and 
acceptable, to characterize 
the UMass Frisbee Club of 
1976-77 as anachronistic and 
inconsistent; a puzzling 
collection of men and women 
possessing the most diversive 
human characteristics. Often 
we were a close knit group 
and dynamic performers of 
fine frisbee skills. However, 
just as often we were torn 
with dissension and a 
tenuous unity that 
displayed some of the worst 
frisbee play in the Valley, 
which has long been a 
stronghold of frisbee 
enthusiasts. 
The UMass Frisbee Club is 
a Recognized Student 
Organization group and may 
attempt to become 
sanctioned as a club sport by 
the powers in the Physical 
Education Department. With 
over 130 members, it is also 
one of the largest 
International Frisbee 
Association affiliate groups. 
The most visible and active 
subset of the club, however, 
remains the Ultimate Frisbee 
players. Their activities 
include the newly organized 
Intramural Program, which 
attracted eight teams this 
spring, and the intercollegiate 
team, which for the second 
year in a row, co-sponsored 
with Hampshire College and 
Amherst College, Ultimate 
Frisbee Championship 
competition in Amherst. 
Participation was open to 
anyone who cared to learn 
the game and scores were 
never kept. Instead, the 
players rated the game on 
how enjoyable it was. 
Ultimate was truly an 
alternative sport played in an 
alternative manner. 
-Jerry Rogers 





Concentration . . . 
On Relaxation 

So you want to be entertained? Studying, 
going to classes, eating two or three meals a 
day, watching TV and sleeping sporadically do 
not seem to satisfy all your needs here? You 
crave some sort of excitement in your everyday 
academic life, right? 

Well, Amherst may not be the Big Apple or 
Boston but it does offer a variety of things to do 
and opportunities for cultural and not-so-cul- 
tural enrichment. 

For you music buffs, you will find the town is 
filled with musicians, all you have to do is make 
the connection - and you'll find people who 
are into whatever type of music you prefer, be 
it classical, jazz, rock or other types. 

Amherst has enough places to drink and so- 
cialize to keep you on the move. On campus, 
the Blue Wall and Hatch both provide live en- 
tertainment (even without the bands) as well as 
cheap drinks. The latter, however, usually has a 
cover charge and better musical groups. The 
TOC is worth checking out, but it's more a 
place to bring old friends than to meet new 
ones. 

If you want to hit an Amherst bar with a lot of 
action, visit the Pub. It is especially busy and 
overcrowded with wall to wall rugby shirts dur- 
ing Friday afternoon Happy Hours, so plan to 
get there by 2:30 for a seat, and 3:00 to get in at 
all. The Pub also serves food (not during Happy 
Hour) and has live entertainment and disco, 
depending on the night. The Drake and the 
Rathskellar (more lovingly referred to as "the 
Rat") are two bars with two different personal- 
ities, both in the same building on Amity Street. 
There is no admission price, and no live enter- 
tainment (in the way of music, that is). The 
Drake's atmosphere is usually quiet and low- 
key, while the "Rat" has more of a "carnival" 
feeling. It has two pool tables, four TV's al 
usually tuned to the same channel, jukeboxes, 
and plenty of pinball machines. Two smaller 
bars in town are Barselotti's and Time Out. 

Those are a few of the places within walking 
distance from the university. If you have access 
to a car and have a bent for disco, you might try 
Poor Richard's III or Rachid's - both on Route 9. 
"Poor Dick's" gets crowded on weekend 
nights- you may spend more time downstairs 

(continued on page 116) 



In compliance with seemingly popular 

demand, the Blue Wall traded in its 

formerly live-performance format for 

disco in January of 1976. This 

change, unfortunately, did not 

prove to be successful, resulting 

in a $20,000 loss of revenue 

for the Blue Wall over a 

year's time. Now, having 

come to its senses, the 

Wall has reverted to 

hosting live entertainment. 

This year, the appearance 

of the Great Pretenders 

drew a crowd of 1400 

people, the biggest draw 

in three semesters. 

According to the 

management, live bands 

attract rowdier crowds 

which drink more, thus 

increasing business for the 

48 kegs simultaneously 

flowing to quench the 

gigantic thirst of the 

students. 



(continued from page 115) 

waiting for your number to be called than you 
will upstairs dancing to the latest top 40 beat. 
There is never a cover charge, and drink spe- 
cials are offered during the week. Rachid's, on 
the other hand, may or may not charge a cover 
depending on the night and the management. 

Of course it isn't necessary to imbibe in or- 
der to enjoy an evening or afternoon. There 
are many lakes, ponds, mountains and good 
scenery to experience. Many are accessible by 
bike or on foot. Places like Puffer's Pond, Cran- 
berry Pond or the Hadley and Quabbin Reser- 
voirs provide good areas for picnics or some 
quiet solitude. Hills like Mt. Toby, Mt. Sugar- 
loaf, Mt. Tom and the Mt. Holyoke Range pro- 
vide good overall views of the Valley, great for 
picture-taking and fresh air. 

The university more than compensates for 
the heavy work loads imposed on students. If 
you read the Collegian, check wall notices and 
posters, or listen to WMUA, you'll discover the 
campus offers tremendous variety in movies, 
plays, exhibits, dances, guest speakers and oth- 
er activities designed to entertain and serve 
you. Not to mention parties of all descriptions. 
A lot of parties. And concerts. And special 
events, and clubs, and demonstrations . . . and 
you name it, UMass probably has it. 

Whatever you're looking for in the way of 
entertainment is within easy reach in the Am- 
herst-Northampton area. Sometimes it just 
takes a little searching for particular things; for 
others it just takes being aware. So, get your 
nose out of that book and enjoy this environ- 
ment. There's an education in entertainment 
too you know! Cheers! 

-Randall Barish

bells which relied on electronic 
equipment to amplify its

from the classes of 1959 and

By Jacob Love 

Astrology is primarily concerned with the study 
of cyclical change. Each planet moves in its own 
cyclical journey around the Sun, the Moon has her 
monthly orbit, and the Earth's axial rotation gives 
us a diurnal cycle as well. A birth-chart is a stop- 
action map of this cyclical motion, with its center 
calculated at the time and place of birth. The As- 
cendant marks the eastern horizon visible from the 
point of birth and functions to locate the event in 
terms of the daily cycle. The twelve "house" divi- 
sions are derived from the Ascendant and the 
Earth's axial position via a complex mathematical 
process. The "signs" of the Zodiac are symbolic 
I markers against which the cyclical influences are 
measured. Altogether, this map gives us a symbolic 
reference to the seedpoint of the organism and a 
background against which we may measure its 
growth as the planets continue to move in their 



Research by Ann-Marie Reis 
cycles. 

The growth of the university seems to be paced by 
the planet Uranus, as it made one full 84-year cycle 
from the time of the initial charter for Mass Aggie 
in 1863 to the time of its promotion to university 
status in 1947. At the university level, these past 30 
years have brought many remarkable changes - but 
as the analysis which follows may portray, these 
changes are modern "echoes" of themes played dur- 
ing Uranus' first time around the chart. If this 
"echo" process continues, the next 54 years of the 
university's evolution may be related to Uranus' 
progress in the chart between 1893 and 1947. 
Trends related to Uranus' passage through the 
twelve regions or "houses" of the chart are outlined 
here, with the understanding that all of the planets 
and their interlocking cycles were actually at work.

Dukakis Spends Two 
Days on Campus 



Governor Michael S. Dukakis makes a point during his visit to 
UMass. He stayed overnight in a dorm and ate with the students in 
the dining commons to "get the feel of attending UMass." 



The chief executive of the state 
spent two days at UMass in order to 
get the feel of the institution during 
the month of Feburary. 

Governor Michael S. Dukakis ar- 
rived at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 24 
and left the next day after a 3 p.m. 
news conference in Whitmore Ad- 
ministration Building. 

"It has been a very enjoyable and 
pleasant visit," the governor said. 

The purpose of Dukakis' visit was 
to obtain a first-hand impression of 
what life is like at UMass-Amherst, 
and to see if the recent budget cuts 
had in any way affected education at 
the institution. 

The trip was also an excuse to 
defend his level funding proposal. 
Dukakis severely criticized President 
of the University Robert Wood's 
Washington Mall office, the pro- 
posed nine million dollar chysical 
education facility at UMass-Boston, 
and the new medical school located in 
Worcester. 

Dukakis, in his proposed level 
funding budget, had requested sixty- 
eight million dollars for the Amherst 
campus while he had requested 
seventy-eight million dollars for fiscal 
year 1978. 

Dukakis was accompanied by 
Secretary of Education Paul Parks 
and Joan Pinck from Educational Af- 
fairs during most of his first day at 
the university. 

Parks slept next door to the gover- 
nor when Dukakis stayed in 207 Coo-

lidge Tower with student Marc 
Steinman. Steinman's roomate, John 
Budinscak, had to spend the night 
somewhere else in the dorm. 

During the day, the governor met 
with Student Senate leaders a^ad oth- 
er student representatives. This was 
after he had lunched in the Hatch on 
a tuna fish grinder. 

The governor also inspected the 
solar house at Orchard Hill and the 
New Africa House. 

Dukakis dined with Parks, State 
Representative James G. Collins, and 
seven students that evening in Hamp- 
shire Dining Commons. 

After taking in two night courses, 
Dukakis returned to Coolidge, went 
jogging, and talked with students un- 
til 1 a.m. 



SATF Hike 

for 77-78 

UMass students voted for a seven 
dollar increase, from $57 to $64, in 
the Student Activities Tax Fund 
(SATF) in a referendum that took 
place on Mar. 16, the same day the 
Student Senate presidential elections 
were held. 

The referendum barely won by a 
435 vote margin of victory. Students 
went 2,73! for the increase and 2,296 
against. 

Disqualified ballots totaled 522. 

The SATF is used to support var- 
ious student activities and groups 
such as the Collegian, the INDEX 
and WMUA. 

The Student Senate had original- 
ly passed the increase on Feb. 10, but 
Co-Presidents Jay Martus and Paul 
Cronin vetoed the bill. The pair were 
immediately threatened with im- 
peachment. 

The senate overrode the veto a 
week later and the Co-Presidents or- 
ganized a petition signing campaign 
to start a binding referendum. 

Their efforts compiled 4,600 sig- 
natures, 200 more than required, in 
the five days after the motion. 

Since more than 25 per cent of the 
student population voted, the referen- 
dum was binding. 

The seven dollar increase was dis- 
cussed in two parts. The four dollar 
portion was to cover the cost of living 
increase ordered by the university 
Board of Trustees. 



Three Fires 
Hit Campus 
In Midwinter 

Three tires struck Ihe campus 
during February and March with two 
occuring on the same night. 

On Feb, 14, a fire ignited by a 
smouldering cigarette was extin- 
guished by an automatic sprinkler 
system. The fire occurred in a base- 
ment closet in the Campus Center 
which is used by maintenance person- 
nel. 

Minutes after that fire was termi 
nated. an alarm was received from 
Hasbrouck Laboratory at 9:54 p.m. 
When firefighters arrived, they found 
a 27 year old graduate student, Jas- 
mina Pavlin, trapped on the third 
floor of the building. 

Pavlin was rescued when fire- 
fighters put a ladder up to the win- 
dow she was near, broke in, and freed 
her. 

"I went to the door. Outside in the 
hall it was dark and smoky." Pavlin 
recalled. "I closed the door because I 

couldn't breathe. 

"I couldn't go out so I stood by 
the window and called for help. The 
window wouldn't open all the way, so 
I put my head out and talked," she 
said. 

Pavlin was unharmed and re- 
turned home afterwards. 

The fire occurred on a stairwell 
which was used for storage. Old 
desks, furniture and equipment were 
damaged in the fire. 

The fire was partially extin- 
guished by a number of graduate stu- 
dents who were studying in the build- 
ing. Crews from five trucks dis- 
patched to the scene finished the job.

spring vacation due to financial and membership problems. 



Poor Richard's License Suspended 



Poor Richard's Discotheque on 
Route 9 in Amherst lost its liquor 
license for three days, then pushed 
back the penalty to September, while 
management appealed the decision. 

The Amherst selectmen votea 3-1 
to suspend the night club's license for 
a three day period, from Tuesday 
April 12 to Thursday April 15 after 
Hampshire County Court found the 
establishment guilty of serving alco- 
holic beverages to two minors on Jan. 
19, 1977. 

The penalty the selectmen doled 
out was more lenient than the two- 
week suspension Amherst Police 
Chief Donald Maia sought. 

Later, at an April 1 1 selectmen's 
meeting, the suspension was held up 
while the discotheque appealed to the 
Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverage 
Commission (ABC). The bar claimed 
"extenuating circumstances" existed. 

Attorni^y Steven Monson, repre- 
senting H.L. Hand Co., owner of the 
discotheque, pleaded that a verbal 
reprimand would do, not suspension, 
because of the circumstances. 

Monson informed the Board that 
the infraction was the first offense 
involving Poor Richard's and that the 
bar had already paid $400 in court 
fees. 



"Poor Richard's has enough busi- 
ness so they don't have to cater to the 
underaged," Monson said. 

"If any reprimand is given, it 
should be given by the parents of the 
violators," the attorney said. 

Selectman William Atkins, who 
proposed a four-day suspension, dis- 



agreed and said that violations like 
this should be dealt with strictly. 

Selectman Nancy Eddy took the 
middle ground and said "the board 
recognizes that it is a severe penalty 
and a severe violation. The board 
hasn't treated such a situation lately 
and we hope that we never will 
again." 



Fraternity 
Closes Due 
To Hazards 



Financial and membership diffi- 
culties caused Theta Epsilon Phi 
(TEP) to be shut down over spring 
vacation by Dean of Student Affairs 
William P. Field. 

The decision was made after 
Field, the building and health inspec- 
tors of both Amherst and the univer- 
sity, and Edward Bowe, director of 
Greek Affairs, had toured TEP and 
determined the fraternity could not 
afford to adquately maintain the 
North Pleasant Street building any 
longer. 

"Fiscally, it (TEP) was in great 
difficulty," explained Field after his 
decision. 

He described the demise of TEP 
as a typical occurrence for "any fra- 
ternity" experiencing a drastic de- 
crease in membership. 

Membership problems arose for 
TEP last fall when its recruiting prac- 
tices failed to replace the 25 brothers 
who had graduated in June of 1976. 

Field said these cycles of reorga- 
nizing and rebuilding of a fraternity 
could occur "over the years." 

According to fraternity President 
Edward Miller, the fraternity had 
planned to shut down in June. 

However, the mid-term action 
had caused "a lot of aggravation for 
the brothers," Miller said. 

While Field promised "a roof over 
everyone's head," when he an- 
nounced the decision. Miller said 
some of the brothers, (there were 20 
living at the house), had experienced 
difficulties in finding new residences. 
Miller said this was especially true of 
the freshmen. 

Despite this problem, Miller said 
the other 23 houses in the UMass 
Greek community "had been great" 
during this sudden relocation. 

Miller also said Field was "prob- 
ably right" in his decision to close 
TEP. The president further stated 
that the future of the TEP chapter at 
UMass would lie with the national 
president. Miller was undecided 
about the role, if any, he would play 
if TEP was reorganized at UMass. 



Hanafi Gunmen Free Hostages, End Reign of Terror 



WASHINGTON - Three moslem 
ambassadors talked to a group of nine 
Hanafi gunmen to end their two-day 
reign of terror and release 134 hos- 
tages. 

Ambassadors Ashraf Ghorbal of 
Egypt, Ardeshir Zahedi of Iran and 
Sahabzada Yaqub-Khan of Pakistan 
conferred with the Hanafi leader Ha- 
maas Abdul Khaalis to release his 
prisoners early on the morning of 
Mar. 11. 

The three foreign representatives 
passed through police lines surround- 
ing the B'nai B'rith building, the 
command post of the group and one 
of the three buildings held, and en 
tered with Abdul Azzis, son-in-law of 
Khaalis. 

The three ambassadors entered 



the command post, read from the Ko- 
ran and urged the group to surrender. 

The first outsiders to communi- 
cate with the Hanafi personally, suc- 
ceeded. 

The sudden raid started the day 
before when three raiders brandish- 
ing guns, knives, and machetes cap- 
tured the B'nai B'rith building on 
-Massachusetts Embassy Avenue at 
1 1 a.m. 

The second group struck about 
two hours later, taking the National 
Islamic Center. The third and blood- 
iest attack occurred at 3 p.m. 

The District Building, Washing- 
Ion's City Hall and within sight of the 
White House, was shot up by the 
Hanafi as a black radio reporter, 



Maurice Williams, was shot to death 
and four others wounded. One of the 
wounded was Washington City 
Council member Marion Ross, who 
reached the hospital. 

The gunmen issued a list of de- 
mands. One demand, the question of 
the film showing "Mohammad Mes- 
senger of God," was met at once. 

The Hanafi also asked for the six 
rival Muslims who were convicted of 
the murder of two Hanafi women and 
five children. Khaalis lost four chil- 
dren in the slaying. This demand and 
two others were not met. 

The terrorists had promised that 
if the police started anything, "heads 
would roll," but reason ultimately 
prevailed. 




MTA Elected 

By UMass Faculty 



SGA Co-presidents Paul Cronin and Jay Martus at meeting for 
collective bargaining. 



The faculty at both UMass cam- 
puses chose the Massachusetts 
Teachers Association (MTA) as their 
collective bargaining agent in a spe- 
cial election held on Feb. 8 and 9. 

The election was a run-off be- 
tween the MTA and "no agent". In 
an earlier election, there was no clear 
majority in a three-way contest be- 
tween MTA, "no agent" and the 
American Association of University 
Professors (AAUP). 

In the election which selected 
MTA, the affiliate of the National 
Education Association won by 215 
votes from 621 that were cast. Nearly 
2,000 faculty members were eligible. 

The MTA represents secondary 
school teachers, state and community 
college professors, and UMass facul- 
ty at Boston and Amherst. Worces- 
ter is not included in the bargaining 
unit and is not part of the group. 

The campus affiliate of the MTA 
is the Massachusetts Society of Pro- 
fessors (MSP) and will represent this 
campus. 



Carter Pardons Draft Evaders 



WASHINGTON - In his first ex- 
ecutive order in the White House, 
President Jimmy Carter gave a full, 
complete, and unconditional pardon 
to all draft evaders of the Vietnam 
war who were not involved in any 
violent acts. 

The order of Jan. 21 carried out 
one of the President's campaign 
promises. 

Deserters were not included, but 
Carter ordered an immediate study 
of their cases and the possibility of 
upgrading bad conduct or undesir 
able discharges. 



University Department 
Tightens Security 

Security precautions were consia- 
erably tightened in late February and 
early March as several incidents of 
indecent exposure were reported to 
the UMass Department of Public 
Safety. 

Incidents involved different men, 
and ranged from cases of "peeping 
toms" to masturbating and ejaculat- 
ing into women's clothing. 

The first published report placed 
a fiasher in the women's locker roon. 
of Curry Hicks gymnasium. Soon, 
other incidents were reported taking 
place in NOPE, the library, and even 
the women's restroom by the former 
check-cashing windows in the Stu- 
dent Union. 

One woman engineering major 
withdrew from the university when 
confronted by one exhibitionist. This 
occurrence, along with her heavy 
course load and other tensions, 
caused her to sit out the rest of the 
semester and think about her future. 



Press Secretary Jody Powell said 
the number of people affected "could 
well be up into the hundreds of thou- 
sands." 

Included in the pardon were draft 
evaders who fied overseas. 

Those draft evaders who changed 
their nationality had to go through 
normal channels like any alien if they 
wished to return to the United States. 

The executive order gave up any 
right of prosecution so that no later 
Attorney General or President could 
reverse the order. It also pardoned 
immediately all draft evaders who 
were involved in former President 
Ford's clemency program. They 
could leave their public service jobs at 
any time. 

The pardon covered those eva- 
sions which took place from Aug. 4, 
1964 through Mar. 28, 1973, which is 
commonly accepted as the Vietnam 
era. 

The primary condition was that 
there had been no violence, especially 
against military. Selective Service, or 
law enforcement personnel. 

In addition to the thousands who 
left the country or deserted, men who 
did not register for the draft were also 
granted a pardon. That was the larg- 
est number of violators and the feder- 
al authorities were almost incapable 
of prosecuting them all. 

President Carter considered his 
action a "responsible and moderate 
course to follow." 

Powell said at the press confer- 
ence, "He (Carter) does not expect 
everyone in the country will agree 
with him." 

Carter did get plenty of feedback. 
A federal judge refused to prevent 
New Hampshire Governor Mcldrim 
Thomson from fiying the U.S. flags 
at half-mast on all state buildings for 
a week. 



U.S. District Court Judge Hugh 
Brownes noted that the U.S. Su- 
preme Court said in the past that 
"freedom to differ is not limited to 
things that do not matter much. That 
would be a mere shadow of freedom. 

"The test of its substance is the 
right to differ as to things that touch 
the heart of the existing order." 

Later, on Mar. 16, the House in a 
surprise move voied 110 to 186 
against Carter's pardon. 



This was the third such election 
since 1973. In the first election the 
faculty voted down an AAUP and 
MSP coalition in favor of "no agent" 
The interest in collective bargaining 
has grown largely due to the state's 
financial restraints of the past three 
years. 

In those past years, the faculty 
has not received a raise in salary. A 
small cost of living increase was given 
out in the spring. 

The group is officially recognized 
by the Massachusetts Labor Rela- 
tions Commission, which tabulated 
the results and ran the election. 

The administration was unhappy 
about the outcome of the election. 

UMass President Robert Wood 
said in a prepared statement after the 
election, that he was "sorry that the 
faculty has turned away from the tra- 
ditional structure of university gover- 
nance. I still do not believe the col- 
lective bargaining mode is right for 
an institution devoted to teaching, re- 
search, and public services, nor do I 
believe it will deliver the economic 
benefits its proponents claim." 

The administration took steps of 
its own over the unionization of the 
faculty. 

At a March 2 Trustees meeting, 
the board decided to appeal the com- 
position of the faculty union bargain- 
ing unit, which it considered "un- 
wieldy." 

The Trustees, because of the ap- 
peal, froze the faculty out of cost of 
living increases. Other unions on 
campus received theirs, but the facul- 
ty did not unfil the legal controversy 
was settled.

Is Capital

An 
Answer? 






Pros & Cons on The Pardon 



For once a politician kept his 
promise. And a campaign promise at 
that. 

On January 21, 1977, President 
Jimmy Carter, in his first day at the 
Oval Office, signed an executive or- 
der giving a free, unconditional and 
complete pardon to all draft evaders 
of the Vietnam era. 

Carter was reasonably trying to 
close the collective wounds of an era, 
almost a decade ago, when the mam- 
moth issue divided so many people, 
destroyed families, and split a nation. 

Worst of all, it shattered bodies 
and ended lives. 

The pardon brought back men 
who had lost their country and 
homes. It gave freedom to men who 
were imprisoned for their beliefs. 

A piece of paper cannot bring 



back those who were lost in another 
country, nor can it give freedom to a 
man who is confined to a bed or 
wheelchair. 

These scars will never heal. But 
some of the memories will fade, some 
of the pain will recede. 

Only time will render the healing, 
only rational and careful thought will 
help put the ugly remembrances into 
the past. 

Many citizens called the pardon a 
nightmare. Others said it was a mis- 
take or an accident. And others 
agreed wholeheartedly with its prem- 
ise. 

In a way, the pardon was an ad- 
mission that the youth who protested 
over the war for so long in the sixties 
and seventies were right all along. 
And the government was wrong. 



Carter learned the lesson so wel. 
that he ran against Washington. The 
people supported him because they 
too had learned from that long, tough 
decade. 

If it was an affirmation that the 
young people of America were right, 
one could not tell by actions. 

There was no celebration of the 
pardon, no dancing, no shouting. The 
average reaction was calm, if even 
discernible. 

The only words were those 
against the pardon. The conservatives 
reacted, but there was little that 
could be done about it. 

The war in Vietnam had been 
over for four years - it was about time 
the war among ourselves ended, too. 



Governor's Visit - A Waste? 



Governor Michael S. Dukakis' 
visit to campus during the month of 
February was his attempt to "get the 
feel of the campus." 

He spent a night in Coolidge dor- 
mitory and attended a few classes, 
visited the solar house on Orchard 
Hill, and ate dinner with a group of 
students. 

After a day and a half stay on the 
campus, the governor was sure 
"something good" had come out of 
the experience. 

Some claimed the visit helped him 
to toss the budget issue to President 
Wood and the UMass Trustees, wait- 
ing for them to make the next move. 

It also made Dukakis a media 
event once again, good for a few votes 
in the next election, perhaps. 



It all seemed quite rosy but no one 
really seemed to think of who the los- 
ers might be - the UMass students. 

One has to question how an Ivy- 
league governor can claim to know 
what it's like to be a UMass student 
on the strength of such a short stay. 
How could he get an accurate feeling 
of what an average student here ex- 
periences on a daily basis, when he is 
the governor and is treated as such, 
even on an "informal" visit? 

This token gesture could not have 
given him a true reading about cam- 
pus life or facilities. 

He could nc: have known of the 
constant change and flow of the 
UMass life. Could he feel the uncer 
tainties, the insecurities? Could he 
have known what it must have felt

like for last year's nursing students to 
be faced with the possibility of having 
their educations swept from under 
them without regard to their needs, 
and the efforts they had put into their 
educations here? Could he gauge the 
feeling of not receiving needed finan- 
cial aid, or of having help cut off? Or 
facing endless increases in every- 
thing, constantly? Could he feel the 
fatigue and frustration of having to 
work two or three part-time jobs 
while trying to be a full-time student, 
just to make ends meet at the end of 
the week? 

In addition to this lack of under- 
standing, there was a lack of true ac- 
complishment from the visit. 

No talks were held between the 
governor and the administration. No 
plans were proposed. No solution to 
the problems of too many bills and 
too little money. 

He came with much ado, and 
really did nothing. A facade to once 
again fool the public. This time, how- 
ever, the question is, did he? 



- The UMass Mass Transit Sys- 
tem, otherwise known as the bus ser- 
vice, was shut down over intersession, 
leaving many students taking classes 
at that time stranded in the tough 
winter weather without transporta- 
tion. The shutdown caused a row be- 
tween Whitmore officials and Stu- 
dent Senate Treasurer Thomas Ker- 
rins over the insurance coverage on 
the system, which ran out on January 
1. The rates of insurance rose from 
$3,135 to almost $75,000, and Ker- 
rins charged that the rise was directly 
attributable to the lackadaisical man- 
ner in which the insurance bids were 
handled. 

- Buffalo, New York — snow- 
bound for most of January and Feb- 
ruary, was declared a major disaster 
area by President Carter on Feb. 5. 
Traffic was at a standstill for several 
days, and snowdrifts of 10 feet cov- 
ered many areas. 

- Rubin "Hurricane" Carter re- 
ceived a life sentence in prison 'on 
Feb. 9 for a triple slaying in 1967. 

- On Feb. 14, Mohammed Idress 
was named the new financial director 
of the Campus Center. Idress came 
from William Patterson College in 
New Jersey. 

- Amherst received an award for 
being the "votingest" town in the 10- 
25,000 population category. 

- Roger Sturgis, a Political Sci- 
ence major completed his preliminary 
budget and attempted to get the Stu- 
dent Senate to adopt his plan that 
student towing replace the services 
offered by Amherst Towing. Under 
Sturgis' budget, $27,000 was needed 
for a capital investment and $51,700 
for operational expenses. His project- 
ed income during the first year of 
service was $49,000, collecting $12 
per vehicle towed. The year before, 
Amherst Towing had nabbed 4,600 
cars at $15, plus a $3 storage charge. 

- Rumors were dispelled concern- 
ing whether the Division of Nursing 
would stay on the Amherst campus or 
move to the medical school in 
Worcester. A report by a blue ribbon 
committee recommended the school 
remain at the Amherst campus. 

- Hampshire Dining Commons' 
special private dining room was 
opened and named "The Down Un- 
der Room" Built originally for the 
Basics food line, the room was too 
small so the line remained upstairs 
and any group of students were able 
to reserve the room for small quiet 
dinners in its Mediterranean motif. 

- The Alumni Phonothon began 
its anual operation in Memorial Hall 
in March. The money raised goes to 
scholarships and special programs. 

- After the Food and Drug Ad- 
ministration announced on Mar. 9 
that it would ban the use of saccharin 
due to studies with laboratory rats 
that the substance could cause can- 
cer. Food Science Professor Fergus 
Clydesdale asked consumers to write 
their congressmen to save the last 
non-nutritive sweetener on the mar- 
ket. 



Bill 



Parent / GJImore - A Tragic Hero 



Gary Gilmore. Remember him? 
I'm sure you do. He did every- 
thing a human could do in his posi- 
tion to carve his name in history. God 
bless America. Where else can a 
young punk kid who never had a 
break achieve such success? His 
childhood was a mess; he was forever 
in and out of reform schools. He stole 
cars, robbed gas stations, stole guns. 
He enjoyed getting drunk and tear- 
ing bars apart. He liked to hurt peo- 
ple, in fact, he even murdered a cou- 
ple. In fact, murder made him fam- 
ous like Billy the Kid and A! Capone 
and Albert DeSalvo. You know the 
rest — you can read about them in 
American Heritage. 

But by the time Gilmore was 36 
years old, he made the covers of Time 
and Newsweek, and had Playboy in- 
terview him. His name was a house- 
hold word. Hell, they even sold T- 
shirts bearing his name in the Cam- 
pus Center. Bogart was right, it's still 
the same old story — a fight for love 
and glory. Ah, the American despar- 
ado riding off into the sunset with a 
few notches on his gun and the 
preacher's daughter watching him 
with a tear in her eye and a memory 
of his gentle side the night before. 
Playboy: '.' Were women ex- 
cited by the outlaw in you?" 
Gilmore: "All ladies love 
outlaws, didn't you know 
that?" 



Yes, Gary, we all know that. That's 
why we took you into our hearts. 
That's why when you wanted to die so 
badly we wouldn't stand in your way. 
In fact, we even cheered you on. We 
love outlaws, Gary; we're Americans. 
We love outlaws almost as much as 
we do losers. And you, Gary, are sim- 
ply an adorable loser. Cagney would 
have played you well, Gary. You too 
shrugged off the prison chaplain and 
bravely walked by yourself to the ex- 
ecutioner. Like the bad thief on the 
cross there was no cowardly confes- 
sion or tears of weakness. You were a 
real man, Gary. You had class. 

But Gary, we have a few ques- 
tions for you. There are a few things 
we didn't understand. What did you 
mean when you told Playboy: 

"I just get in trouble. 

Damn. I guess it's just my 

habit to wind up in the 

worst kind of shit." 
Gary, you mustn't have felt that way. 
You had an IQ of 1 1 7, a flair for 
writing, drawing and painting. You 
liked to read John Knowles and Her- 
mann Hesse. And a girlfriend, Gary. 
You had a girlfriend and she adored 
you — she even tried to die for you. I 
mean it's true she wasn't a Radcliffe 
girl but she loved you. When they 
found her asleep from an overdose of 
barbituates she had your picture 
from a magazine cover clutched to 
her bare breast. Doesn't that do any- 



thing to you, Gary? We loved it. It 
was human drama at its best and we 
weren't even affectpd. 



"If I feel like murder, it 
doesn't necessarily matter 
who gets murdered. Mur- 
der is just a thing of itself, 
a rage, and rage is not rea- 
son, so what does it matter 
who? It vents rage." 



Rage against who, Gary? Those men 
you murdered, the motel clerk? He 
never did anything to you. That's why 
we are killing you, Gary. You asked 
for it 

And so Gary Gilmore was led 
from his cell on the morning of Janu- 
ary 17, 1977. For sleeping America, 
the sentence was being carried out — 
the private demand was fulfilled. It 
didn't matter that capital punishment 
has never been proven as a deterrent 
to violent crime. In fact, the statistics 
are that the violent crime rate is high- 
er in states which have the death pen- 
alty than in states which do not. Mur- 
der rates tend to increase around the 
time of a well-publicized execution. 
Murder is often termed by psycholo- 
gists a "terminal act" in which the 
murderers reach an anxiety free state 
after the murder due to the unleash- 
ing of pent-up emotional tension and 



committing a violent deed in despera- 
tion with the belief that by killing 
another person, they have found a 
way to terminiate their own miser- 
able existence. For the sleeping 
Americans, the death of Gary Gil- 
more, in the face of society's impo- 
tence against violence, was the same 
catharsis. It is our spiritual heritage 
to expect someone else to die for our 
sins. 

For Gilmore, as he walked down 
to the death chamber, the battle was 
finally going to be over. 

Gilmore: "To make some- 
body live in a lessened state 
of existence. I think that 
could be worse than kitlin 
them." 

He probably thought of Nicole, 
his girlfriend. She had been through 
three teenage marriages and now 
this. He might have thought of his 
father, an alcoholic who went into 
violent rages when Gilmore was a 
kid. He might have thought of his 
mother. He told interviewers, "She 
loved me and believed in me." 

They led him to the chair and put 
the hood over his face. He heard the 
cocking of the rifles. He didn't 
squirm. He had been in that position 
all his life and now was the last time. 

He didn't have a chance.

/ IVISP - Only Time Will Tell 



It finally happened. In an election 
held at both the UMass Amherst and 
Boston campuses Feb. 8 and 9, 2,000 
faculty and staff members voted to 
have a union represent them to the 
administration after four years of de- 
bating on the subject, and a shoving 
match between two teacher organiza- 
tions and a third adversary group. 

It was the second time faculty at a 
major New England state university 
voted to bring the traditionally busi- 
ness-oriented collective bargaining 
table into higher education. The first 
to do so were faculty at the Universi- 
ty of Connecticut at Storrs, who vot- 
ed to have a union represented by the 
American Association of University 
Professors (AAUP) in the spring of 
1976. 

But at UMass, there was a differ- 
ence. Our faculty voted to be repre- 
sented by the Massachusetts Society 
of Professors (MSP) who not only 
bring a bargaining table for faculty 
and administration to meet on equal 
footing, but also MSP's Boston affili- 
ate, the Massachusetts Teachers' As- 
sociation (MTA), an influential and 
powerful lobbying agency at the state 
house which already represents 
60,000 public secondary school 
teachers in Massachusetts. With this 
lobbying power offered by the MTA, 
UMass faculty will be able to take 
some gainful shots on Beacon Hill 
where the real power block behind 
university decisions and policy forma- 
tion lies. 



The MTA and MSP are both 
state affiliates of the oldest and most 
active national teacher organization 
for teacher rights and progressive 
trends in education, the National 
Education Association (NEA). The 
NEA was the first to bring up a con- 
stitutional question on the use of IQ 
tests for placement of students within 
schools. The NEA was the first to 
charge that these tests were socially 
discriminating. The NEA has 54,000 
higher education members in 354 lo- 
cals, 149 of which are bargaining 
agents 

But despite the NEA's reputa- 
tion, MSP went through a four-year 
battle to garner UMass faculty's sup- 
port behind the kind of union they 
could provide. 

MSP was started by a group of 
UMass faculty on the Amherst cam- 
pus in 1972 and within a short time 
the organization was accepted by the 
NEA as a local affiliate in Amherst. 
At that time, UMass was just begin- 
ning to feel the pinch of the state 
legislature, which was short on mon- 
ey after the bountiful sixties and had 
placed lIMass low on its funding pri- 
ority list. 

So, in an attempt to insure facul- 
ty's rights, a coalition was formed be- 
tween the MSP and the Amherst- 
chapter AAUP. The two groups cam- 
paigned for the formation of a collec- 
tive bargaining unit for the Amherst 
campus faculty which would be re- 
presented by their coalition. 



In 1975, faculty at the two cam- 
puses filed separately with the Mas- 
sachusetts Labor Relation commis- 
sion requesting the formation of a 
separate union for faculty at each 
campus. 

November 1975 marked the be- 
ginning of the five-month long Labor 
Relation hearings on the matter. In 
December, the commission an- 
nounced a decision that if a union 
were to be established, there should 
be one for faculty at both campuses. 

However, at the end of October 
1976, seven months after the hearings 
ended, the commission announced a 
ruling favoring the faculty's posi- 
tions. 

But before a union can take effect 
with dues collected and negotiations 
conducted, two things must happe'n. 
First, the employer, (being the uni- 
versity administration in this case), 
must accept and recognize their em- 
ployees' union and both parties must 
agree to a contract stipulating bar- 
gaining arrangments. And second, 
this contract must be approved by the 
state legislature. The faculty can ex- 
pect two tough battles. 

First — the administration. The 
administration pulled many careful 
stunts throughout the entire state La- 
bor Relations hearing to put-off the 
impending election. As an example, 
the day before the December elec- 
tion, the UMass trustees voted a rec- 
ommendation that all personnel not 



then unionized receive pay raises and 
bonuses of up to $1,200. This was 
clearly a political move since the fac- 
tor swaying most faculty in favor of a 
union was a two-year freeze on cost- 
of-living and merit salary raises for 
all state college and university faculty 
passed by the state legislature under 
the suggestion of top administrators 
at those insitutions, particularly 
President Wood. 

Secondly — the state legislature. 
The chances of its accepting UMass's 
contract (if it ever comes about) ap- 
pears slim. In December 1976, the 
state house voted down approval of 
the contract for the union of the state 
community colleges. 

Lastly, if the union ever does 
come about, how effective can it be? 
Can UMass finally tinker with the 
legislature and get due attention from 
that body? Will enough affinity be- 
tween faculty here and at the Boston 
campus develop to make collective 
bargaining work effectively for each 
campus? Can a union effectively 
raise the standard of education at 
UMass-Amherst and Boston? 

What about present governance 
bodies here — the faculty senate, the 
governance body for professional 
staff, the graduate and undergrad- 
uate student senates? How much 
power can they have in university de- 
cision making after a union for facul- 
ty is established? 

We can speculate now, but only 
lime will tell. 




Cashier's Office in 
Student Union 
Closes Permanently 



As the sign says, the cashier closed forever in the Student Union, 
inconveniencing many students. 



Check-cashing ended over spring 
vacation, and students faced the pos- 
siblity of having no check-cashing fa-' 
cilities on campus. 

The service, located in the Stu- 
dent Union building, ended when lo- 
cation and security became a prob- 
lem. 

The facilities had already been 
robbed once, and since that time the 
windows required the prescence of an 
officer of the UMass Department of 
Public Safety to be on the premises. 
One proposal had the check-cash- 
ing facilities moved to where the Mu- 
sic Room is located, across from the 
Blue Wall on the Campus Center 
Concourse. 

This move was defeated wnen 
more than a thousand students signed 
a petition which requested that the 
Music Room remain as it is. 

Another factor for the closing 
down of cashier's windows in the Stu- 
dent Union-Campus Center Complex 
was the fact that the insurance policy 
for the three UMass campuses re- 
quired the purchase of four new safes 
for the complex. 

The cost of $10,000 per safe was 
the major factor in the shutdown. 

Besides the Music Room location, 
which proved to be too expensive due 
to the cost of the safes, other sites in 
the Campus Center Complex were 
considered. 

These other sites, however, were 
either undesirable, usually for securi- 



University 

Thermostats 

Lowered 



Following an order by Governor 
Michael S. Dukakis, university per- 
sonnel lowered building thermostats 
to 65 degrees. 

The governor issued his mandate 
in February, as the eastern United 
States was in the midst of a massive 
cold spell that was guzzling fuel at an 
unexpected rate. 

Besides lowering heating thermo- 
stats to 65 degrees, the governor or- 
dered that when the warm weather 
returned, the thermostats would be 
raised from 72 to 76 degrees so less 
cooling from air conditioning would 
be required. 

The only exemptions from the 65 
degree rule were residence halls, the 
infirmary, and certain buildings on 
campus with unique problems, such 
as the Fine Arts Center, because of 
its pianos, v/hich could be affected by 
a temperature change, and buildings 
where science experiments were be- 
ing conducted under controlled labo- 
ratory conditions.

ty reasons, or too expensive to equip 
and renovate. 

Students had the option of either 
cashing their checks at the Bursar's 
Office, the UMass Student Credit 
Union, or several commercial banks 
located in the area. 

Lab fees were to be paid at the 
Bursar's office, too. 

One option that had been dis- 
cussed all through this time was the 
possibility of bringing a commercial 
bank to campus. 

UMass Director of Personnel, 
John DeNyse, said that he favored a 
bank on campus because "A bank has 
the ability to write off losses that ev 
eryone incurs" while cashing checks. 

Then acting Campus Center Di- 
rector William F. Field said, "The 
university is not very good in dealing 
with check cashing. 

"One person ripped us off for 
$2,700 in two weeks, and the money 
comes from student fees." 

The frequency of bad checks, and 
the overall expense of providing a 
check-cashing service was part of the 
reason that the Bursar's Office was 
also considering discontinuing offer- 
ing this service to students. 



Severe Frosts 
Cause Coffee 
Prices to Rise 

A series of severe frosts, starting 
in June of 1975, caused the cost of 
coffee to start climbing during the 
months of January, February, and 
March of 1977. 

The cost of coffee had been fairly 
stable and cheap since World War II, 
but the frosts coupled with the higher 
demand had depleted the stocks of 
coffee for export, notably in Brazil. 

The International Coffee Organi- 
zation (ICO), the governing body of 
the world's most precious commodity 
outside of oil, seemed powerless to do 
anything about the problem. 

"If the problem were the result of 
some artificial situation," said a 
United States delegate, "then we 
would have a field of action. 

But you're powerless when it's a 
question of fundamental supply and 
demand." 

Marcello Raffaelli, the Brazilian 
representative to the ICO, did not 
quarrel with the speculation that the 
cost for a pound of coffee in New 
York City could rise to retail between 
$4.75 and $5 before the end of the 
year. 

While exportation has been at a 
record high, this increased the prob- 
lem. 

"But as exports have gone up," 
said Juan Santos, representative of 
Columbia, "stocks have gone down. 

The stocks of coffee which can be 
exported has been virtually exhaust- 
ed." 




Women helping and informing other women on all kinds of issues was the focus of International Women's Week, held at UMass 
in March. 

Int' Women's Week Successful 



International Women's Week 
took place on campus Mar. 6 through 
12. The celebration includes speech- 
es, plays, workshops, art and craft 
exhibits, and concerts covering the 
full range of problems faced by mod- 
ern women. 

The week was partially funded by 
many groups. The Distinguished 
Visitors Program donated $5,000 for 
speakers. The Program Council con- 
tributed $2,500 for a Student Union 
Ballroom concert by Ellen McEl- 
waine and the Student Senate funded 
the opening event, a concert by black 
jazz musician, Betty Carter. 

While many women and men at- 
tended the workshops and seminars 
during the day, their children were 
well cared for in Campus Center 168. 
The children were free to play, draw, 
or sleep in an atmosphere "free from 
oppression." 



Some of the workshops offered 
during the week included "Vaginal 
Ecology," "Women and Work," "Sex 
Roles-Androgyny," and "Women in 
Transition." 

More heavily attended were the 
speakers, who were more well-publi- 
cized than the myriad workshops. 

Perhaps the most famous speaker 
to visit the campus was Bella Abzug. 



The former United States Congress- 
woman and potential candidate for 
mayor of New York called for more 
women in politics. She pointed out 
that two parts of the federal govern- 
ment have no female members — the 
Supreme Court and the U.S. Senate. 
Abzug said, while nearly 7,000 
women have been elected to local and 
national offices, the number com- 



prises only nine per cent of all elected 
officials nationwide. 

Other notable speakers were Ma- 
donna Gilbert, co-ordinator for the 
Alternate Education for Native 
Americans; Dr. Helen Rodrigues, a 
member of a committee to end steril- 
ization abuse on Puerto Ricas wom- 
en; and Arlene Isen, author of Wom- 
en in Vietnam. 



Carter Visits 
in Clinton 

CLINTON - President Jimmy 
Carter had his first "meet the peo- 
ple" trip of his term in the small. 
Central Massachusetts town of Clin- 
ton on Mar. 17. 

Held in the traditional New Eng- 
land town meeting mode, the Presi- 
dent answered questions from 850 
residents of the town who were cho- 
sen by random lottery. 

The town was 75 per cent Demo- 
cratic and favored him two to one in 
the November election. The represen- 
tatives of the town asked Carter ques- 
tions about unemployment, welfare 
reform, and federal funding for abor- 
tion. 

While in Clinton, Carter stayed 
with Eva Hestu', 56. The widow was 
a long-time Carter supporter and was 
a member of the Electoral College 
which elected the President. 



SBA Dean, Odiorne, Resigns 



The resignation of the Dean of the 
School of Business Administration 
(SBA) highlighted the problems 
faced by that section of the universi- 
ty. 

George Odiorne's resignation was 
made public on March 30, by Dean 
David Bischoff of the Provost's Of- 
fice. Odiorne's resignation was effec- 
tive August 31. 

He retained his teaching position 
at a reduced professor's salary. 

The former dean called his rela- 
tions with Bischoff "good," and ap- 
preciated the understanding Bischoff 
had for SBA's problems, but "has 
been in unremitting disagreement 
with the way resources are allocated 
among units on campus." 

Odiorne also refused to be "fur- 
ther idenfified with an administration 
which is incapable of shifting more 
than one-tenth of one per cent of its 
budget from places of low demand to 
areas of extremely high demand over 
a three-year period." 

The former dean listed several 
problems that arose due to the lack of 
proper resources: 

- At least one internationally 
known scholar had left in despair at 
the ravaging effects of the pa'st four 
years of poor fiscal support. 

- Twelve highly talented younger 
professors had been lured to other 
schools. 



- SBA operated at the time with 
over 40 per cent of its classes taught 
by teaching assistants rather than 
professors, dropping the school below 
standards of accreditation. 

- SBA employs numerous "ad- 
junct" or part-time professors to cov- 
er classes. 



The school had been accredited 
during the previous academic year, 
but if the accreditation process had 
taken place during the past year, 
there was a good chance that the 
school would not have received ac- 
creditation, according to the former 
dean. 




A common, expensive, and frustrating sight on campus. Amherst 
Towing charges students for towing and storage of vehicles, not to 
mention the ticket. 



Student Exhibits 
"In Poor Taste'' 



While Gary Gilmore met his fate 
before a firing squad in January, he 
was immortalized in Amherst, and 
around the nation - on a T-shirt. 

James Bozony, a 23 year old mas- 
ter's candidate in creative writing and 
founder of In Poor Taste Inc., sold his 
only product, a Gary Gilmore T- 
shirt. 

The shin has a target over the 
heart and the words "Gary Gilmore, 
Point of the Mountain, Utah. Janu- 
ary 17, 1977." 

On the back of the shirt it said, 
"Let's Do It, last words." 

Sold for $5, the home-made prod- 
uct attracted the attention of News- 
week and CBS-TV. 

"I'm not trying to heroize the 
man," Bozony siad. "If the state of 
Utah had tried, convicted and execut- 
ed him in two weeks, I wouldn't be 
selling T-shirts. 



But they didn't. Only in America 
can a murderer make the front page 
of Newsweek." 

Many people made comments 
while passing Bozony's table on the 
Campus Center Concourse. "They 
assume I'm trying to glorify him," 
the manufacturer said. 

"The whole purpose is black hu- 
mor," Bozony added. 

"He may be something of a 
death-row prison hero, but personally 
I'm supportive of capital punishment. 
The whole thing is a satire of a ridicu- 
lous situation. 

"The idea of anyone buying these 
is absurd. The idea of anyone wear- 
ing it is even more absurd." 

Bozony did show his beliefs, 
though. Fifteen per cent of the profits 
made on the shirts were to be donated 
to the families of Gilmore's victims.

Bozony said a percent of the proceeds from the shirts would go

For Carter, It's 
A 'Simple' Affair 



President and Mrs. Carter seem to be in very good spirits as they 
walk down Pennsylvania Avenue after Carter was sworn in as the 
nation's 39th chief executive. 



WASHINGTON - James Earl 
Carter was sworn in as the 39th 
President of the United States on 
January 20, 1977. 

After being sworn in by Chief 
Justice Warren Burger of the Su- 
preme Court at 12:02 p.m., the new 
President promised a government 
"both competent and compassion- 
ate." 

An estimated 1 50,000 listened in- 
tently as the former Georgia governor 
made a short 12-minute speech after 
the oath was administered and a 21- 
gun salute was fired. 

Carter's first words were praise 
for former President Ford for the 
healing he brought to the nafion. 

Carter promised no new dreams 
before the American people, but, 
"fresh faith in the old dream." 

"We are a strong nation and we 
will maintain strength so sufficient 
that it need not be proved in combat 
— a quiet strength based not merely 
on the size of the arsenal, but on the 
nobility of ideas," the first southern 
President in over 100 years said in his 
address. 

. . . Let no one confuse our ide- 
alism with weakness," he said. 

Carter promised in his speech to 
seek world peace, limit the distribu- 
tion of nuclear weapons, and concern 
for human rights across the world. 
Carter pledged to limit arms to the 
level needed for each nation's safety. 
and working for a "lasting peace." 

Carter's rise was an impossible 
dream. Starting as an outsider and. 
virtually unknown outside his native 
state of Georgia, he challenged the 
political establishment and won. 

In winning, he succeeded Gerald 
Ford, who had spent half of his 63 
years in politics and the last two and 
a half as President. 



Both Carter and Walter Mon- 
dale, his Vice-President, who was 
sworn in before him, took their oaths 
four years to the day after Richard 
M. Nixon and Spiro T. Agnew also 
vowed to "take care that the laws be 
faithfully executed," but were forced 
from office for failure to do just that. 

In a move to show simplicity, 
Carter and his immediate family 
walked down Pennsylvania Avenue at 
the head of the Inaugural parade. 

After his mile-long walk, he 
clapped during the parade, some- 
times bouncing his daughter Amy on 
his knee, blowing kisses to the crowd 
and laughing. 

With infectious good will, the 
President watched the two and a half 
hour spectacular, which had 350,000 
lining Pennsylvania Avenue watching 
while 15,000 participated in the 33 
floats and 55 bands in the parade. 



Tufts Plans 
Vet School 

The Tufts University Board of 
Trustees voted to proceed with plans 
to start a veterinary school if it could 
get enough support, the college an- 
nounced on Feb. 6, much to the de- 
light of UMass students and profes- 
sors. 

Professor Russell E. Smith, 
UMass pre-vet advisor, said after the 
announcement that he had "watched 
the vet school situation for over 30 
years and this is the first time I have 
seen anything so concrete take place. 

"I'm pleased with the idea; any- 
one who starts a vet school has my 
blessing."

A Year of Jazz Giants 



by Jack Cahill 



A 



significant fact in the jazzmusic resurgence of the last few years is that the Charlie Parker 
Savoy sessions reissue sold more copies in 1976 than did all the original Savoy recordings since they 
were first released in the forties. 



Slowly, slowly, the listening public has 
come around to a realization of the 
strength and inherent significance of the 
music that was born in Africa and bred in 
America, the music that through the 
years has been celebrated, castigated, 
stolen from and summarily ignored. 

New York City remains the jazz mecca 
of the country and the Boston jazz com- 
munity has become a large one. Halfway 
between the two, Amherst has felt the 
cultural tug and responded. The pres- 
ence of a few key people — notably Bill 
Hasson, Max Roach and Vishnu Wood — 
has made the university the local center 
for the performance and teaching of 
jazz/black music. And the Amherst audi- 
ence is a singular one. Instead of the 
cool, detached appreciation of a New 
York crowd, they are open and genuine- 
ly warm and, best of all, intelligently ex- 
citable. When a performer or perfor- 
mance deserves it, they are more than 
willing to voice their opinion long and 
loudly. 

They did just that when Rahsaan Ro- 
land Kirk took the stage in the Student 
Union Ballroom last October, still crip- 
pled by a stroke that had rendered his 
left side useless. The long and heartfelt 
standing ovation that greeted Kirk was 
an expression of "bright moments" he 
has provided in the course of a musical 
career best described as miraculous. Ac- 
companied by a new version of the ever- 
vivacious Vibration Society, Rahsaan 
proved, in startling fashion, that his inner 
musical might could transcend even the 
handicap of a useless hand. He was clear- 
ly UP and his shattering saxophone and 
stritch forays struck the audience with 
delirious impact. 

He jammed volcanically with local 



guns Sulaiman Hakim, Charles Majeed 
Greenlee and Vishnu Wood and on a 
bizarre blues suddenly started SCREAM- 
ING and the crowd began SCREAMING 
back in an awesome display of the tangi- 
ble emotional force Kirk radiates. 

Count Basie's scheduled appearance 
in the fall was kept, but without the ail- 
ing Bill Basie's presence. Instead, the ef- 
fervescent trumpet master Clark Terry 
fronted the current Basie machine. A 
machine it is, too; dependable, strong, 
always well-oiled if not as fleet as it once 
was, and combining new parts with some 
mighty older cogs — trombonist Al Grey 
and saxophonists Jimmy Forrest and 
Bobby Plater. 

Three large aggregations from New 
York ended up on campus by a lucky 
somehow: Gil Evans' group, Charles Tol- 
liver's Music, Inc., and Frank Foster's 
Loud Minority. Gil Evan's winter Fine 
Arts Center concert resembled a re- 
hearsal and proved conclusively that Jimi 
Hendrix music cannot be filtered 
through a large tuba-led ensemble and 
expect to survive. Yet some of the high 
points, like the breathtaking trumpet 
work of Marvin Hannibal Peterson, were 
very high. 

The Music Inc. group led by trumpet- 
er Tolliver also lacked the necessary im- 
pact, but the 17-piece Loud Minority 
supplied it in double dose. 

Presented free as part of spring's Black 
Musician Conference, the Loud Minor- 
ity packed the Student Union Ballroom 
with an enthusiastic horde who sparked 
this little-heard young band into a bra- 
vura performance full of uptempo gusto, 
complex and wailing arrangements, 
scorching solos by everyone, trumpet 
battles and all the things that make the 



big band context such a satisfying one. 

For sheer significance, the Night of the 
Giants, one of the Fine Arts Council's 
concerts, stands as the year's premier 
event. The combination of Dizzy Gille- 
spie, saxist James Moody, pianist Mary 
Lou Williams, bassist Ron Carter and 
drummer Jo Jo Jones was a potent one 
and fairly reeked of history. 

Plans to record the concert were un- 
fortunately scuttled and the chance was 
missed to preserve emcee Bill Cosby's 
ecstatic reebop vocalizing. And of 
course the indefatigable Diz, prime min- 
ister of hepsters, left no doubt as to who 
put the beat into beatnik. 

A supremely hip lady herself, Betty 
Carter initiated International Woman's 
Week at UMass in the most auspicious 
way imaginable at a Fine Arts Center 
concert. She commanded the audi- 
ence's rapt attention, first with the ar- 
resting physical demeanor of her ac- 
tions, her stance, her expressions, then 
with her overpoweringly beautiful vocal 
style. A strong, but attentive trio led by 
pianist John Hicks keyed a performance 
that was, from tune one on, a tour de 
force in the modern art of the jazz vocal. 

Even apart from UMass, the level of 
jazzmusic activity in the five-college area 
has increased this past year. Witness the 
musicians who have appeared else- 
where: Oliver Lake, Lee Konitz, Marion 
Brown, Ed Blackwell, Woody Herman, 
Julius Hemphill, Randy Weston, to name 
a few. Perhaps the scene is not as advan- 
tageous for local musicians as it needs to 
be, but people in the Amherst area are 
getting to truly know jazz and want to 
hear and support it. \£-

THE CRITICS AGKEE 

THE BEST CONCERT 




I witnessed a miracle Friday night. A blind Black man, disabled 
by a serious stroke only last year, stood before a packed SUB 
audience with a tenor saxaphone hanging from his neck. 

— Bill Sundstrom, Da/7y Collegian 

With one working arm he simultaneously blew two horns, 
racing the scales up and down and moving the crowd to 
ecstacy. 

— Kathe Sandler, Collegian Black Affairs 



He not only put on a great show, he also educated and in- 
spired the entire Ballroom ... the greatest saxaphone player 
in the world today. 

— Willie Wheeler, Nummo News 



And when Kirk soloed, windows shattered, heads fell off and 
rolled grinning down the aisles and the deaf were given hear- 
ing . . . never has a concert so profoundly affected the UMass 
community. 

— Jack Cahill, The Valley Advocate 

... he has mastered matter and energy to forge a supple 
channel between the fount of his unlimited inspiration and 
the world becoming a paragon of the transcendant incandes- 
cence of the human spirit in the current Dark Age. I shit you 
not.

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra 
rolled into Amherst in May, capping the 
four-concert orchestra series in the Fine 
Arts Center Concert Hall. 

Conducted by Sir Georg Solti, the 
symphony performed the last of Mo- 
zart's symphonies, C major, and fol- 
lowed with Mahler's Symphony No. 5 in 
C sharp major. 

The orchestra series began in October 
with the familiar Boston Symphony Or- 
chestra under the direction of Seiji 



Ozawa. The Prague Chamber Orchestra 
gave the second concert of the series in 
March. Founded in 1951, the 36 member 
Chamber Orchestra is unique because it 
performs without the aid of a conductor. 
The third concert was performed by 
the Minnesota Orchestra in April. Under 
the direction of Stanislaw Skrowac- 
zewski, it has become one of the most 
widely traveled orchestras in the country 
and is referred to as "the orchestra on 
wheels."

David Bromberg and his band opened 
their March concert with "Six Days on 
The Road," and Bromberg proceeded to 
explain that he was suffering from a 
"travel exhaustion high," a point which 
he repeatedly made throughout the 
evening. 

Part of his monologue on the rigors of 
being on tour was intended merely to 
humor the crowd, and songs like "Trav- 
eling Man" were intended to nurture 
i the romanticism of the "man on the 
road," but the remaining parts were the 
genuine confessions of a tired man. But 




Bromberg and his band didn't let that 
prevent their fingers from flying over 
the keys and frets of their instruments in 
a display of speed, dexterity and musical 
imagination. The result was two shows of 
blues, rock and swinging country music 
that aroused the packed crowd and sent 
it home pleased — hard work for any 
band, much less an exhausted one. 

The show was presented by the Pro- 
gram Council Music Committee, a group 
of students who also work hard to please 
audiences. 

Their instruments, however, are tele- 
phones, used to call talent agents, and 
calculators to determine how to present 
the best show possible at a reasonable 
price. But the real work begins about a 
week before the date of the show. 

Reflecting on the year, in which the 
committee sponsored seven shows-all 
for $3.00 or less — Co-Chairperson Bon- 
nie Levitan said she was totally occupied 
with arrangements during the hectic 
week before each show. "Even after 
work, we discuss things on the phone," 
she said. 

Final arrangements are made with 
sound and light companies as well as the 
Physical Plant department, which sets up 
the chairs for a show. 

Levitan said all of this work is done at 
the expense of missed classes. But, she 
added, many committee members, in- 
cluding herself, don't worry too much 
about skipping classes when necessary 
because they want to go into concert 
promotion after they graduate.

to qualify that statement. I'm already enrolled in 20 honors

all 6,000 - not to mention that I'm attending 26 different 
schools across the nation on exchange. Now, what were you 
saying about business?" 

"Hey, that national exchange sounds okay. Do they have a 
place I can send you - something a little out of the way, like the 
Sahara Desert?" 

Van was getting edgy. She really wasn't getting into things 
here, 1 guess she just wasn't interested in this kind of university 



life. Anyway, I had found a lot of new information. 

The Honors Program is available to all students in some 
way, shape, or manner. It's divided into three branches: Honors 
Program, Commonwealth Scholars, and Departmental Honors. 
All of them required a great deal of work, time, and motivation. 

For any student interested in travel, the national exchange 
program would fit the bill. It gives a student the opportunity to 
study for a semester or a year at another college or university in 
the country, at in-state tuition. All that is necessary is a 2.5 
cum and the ambition. I've always wanted to go to Hawaii.

*********************************** 
Chris was becoming a little distant, unusual for him. I guess 
he was beginning to feel I really disliked UMass. I didn't, but I 
was a little homesick and lost at the start of the second semes 
ter. There's just so much going on here, it was difficult to 
choose a course of study. 

There is certainly an abundance of alternatives. In a commu- 
nity like Amherst there are usually a number of volunteer 
projects students can participate in. Internships are a good ex- 
ample. A student can earn up to 15 credits working in places 



like Washington, New York, or another part of the state. 
Volunteer services, working with disadvantaged youth or with 
the mentally retarded are valuable experiences for both the 
recipient and the student. In talking with students here, I found 
many were extremely enthusiastic about the work they were 
doing as volunteers or interns. Maybe community service or the 
chance for training in a real job setting is part of the secret. 
Such things can really make an education complete, and get a 
student involved in what's going on. 
I found another important part of UMass to be the opportu-

nity to learn about other cultures . . . this place seems to have 
everything. Students can participate in the International Ex- 
change Program, which has three programs within it — one 
can go to England, France, Sweden, Germany ... the opportu- 
nities are endless. All it takes is a 3.0 average and a lot of 
suitcases. 

In addition to that, for students wishing to remain in the 
Amherst area, there is the Five College Exchange. Students 
here can integrate courses from Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Amherst, 
and Hampshire College right into their regular UMass sched- 



ule. It's only a short bus ride to these schools, and the chance to 
meet and work with students from these neighboring colleges is 
an added benefit for any student. I thought that was terrific. 

"Van, we got another letter from Dr. James today. He said 
he was pleased with the notes and the progress reports we sent 
him. He said we're getting to be real celebrities at home. I just 
hope no one around here finds out what we're up to."

although people must wonder about us . . . all we do is study."

thing about the social life on this campus? We haven't been to 
any parties or done anything not directly related to school. 
People here must think we're really strange." 

"You're right, Chris. What do you think? Why don't we 
forget all about anything academic for the weekend and really 
see what UMass is like. We could go to all kinds of places. How 
about it?" 

"I'm with you, my books are glued shut. Maybe we can make 



our dissertation really interesting. After all, partying must 
have some kind of intrinsic motivation, right? Look at the 
sociological implications." 

"From what I gather, this is really known as a great party 
school, but we have only seen the studious side of it. Let's see if 
its parties are as good as its educational programs. But what do 
you say, let's forget about the dissertation, just for now?" 

"It's a deal." 

P.S. We had a great weekend.

Words like "rewarding," "helpful," and "satisfying," are often used to 
describe the feeling of providing services for others, whether it's by way of 
teaching, doing volunteer work, doing something necessary and practical, 
or just making someone a little less overworked by your own efforts. 
Perhaps that sounds like a commercial for "Pollyanna," but nonetheless, 
we all need to work with someone else to get things done. Here, we take a 
quick look at a few of the varied choices students have at UMass if they 
wish to volunteer their services while gaining valuable experience, and yes 
- even a little satisfaction. ; 







So, you like to be involved in helping others? Doing volun- 
teer work? Then you've come to the right place to

This year, when students were 
faced with the closing of check- 
cashing at the Student Union, 
they were fortunate in having the 
option of using a student-run ser- 
vice in close proximity - the Stu- 



dent Federal Credit Union. Mem- 
bership costs 50(t: and offers the 
convenience of cashing small 
checks as well as banking money 
with a small quarterly interest 
dividend. The Credit Union is 



staffed by student volunteers, 
who in turn get good experience 
in running the operation, while 
saving many students from a trip 
to Whitmore or a bank in town on 
Friday afternoon.

joint 
operations 

Some of the ways in which stu- 
dents provide valuable (and eco- 
nomical) services to other stu- 
dents are via the various co-ops 
on campus - such as the People's 
Market, the Stereo Co-op, and the 
newly formed Photo Co-op. Qual- 
ity products and friendly advice 
are offered to students at reason- 
able prices (the advice is free).

a very human service 



One of the most prevalent and 
often least appreciated services on 
campus is one of personal contact 
- in short, counseling. In every 
living area, on every floor - there 
are Resident Assistants who en- 
joy the pleasures of breaking up 
corridor squabbles, telling people 
to turn down their stereos, hold- 



ing "corridor meetings" and get- 
ting up at 4:00 a.m. at least a few 
times a week to unlock the doors 
of forgetful students returning 
from a night out. These counsel- 
ors also help students deal with 
personal or academic problems 
and often refer them to other 
agencies on campus if they do not 



feel qualified to handle the situa- 
tion. As one Resident Assistant 
put it, "I've done everything in 
this job from babysitting little 
brothers and sisters for the after- 
noon to coaching someone 
through the night after too much 
Tequila, but it's a great human ex- 
perience and I love it." 










PROVIDE SERVICES/159 



An important service to 
UMass students is "Room 
To Move," a student drop- 
in center where help is 
available for all kinds of 
problems. A student can 
stop by once for a special 
need, or see a particular 
student counselor in confi- 
dence on a regular basis. 




Academic counseling is an 
integral part of every stu- 
dent's life, and most start 
off with CASIAC, staffed 
by trained students. If they 
do not have all the infor- 
mation a student requires, 
they will get it or refer the 
student to another counsel- 
ing center on campus. 




a sporting eye view 
of tlie winter season 




"It was a long season, but 
it was all worth it," exclaimed 
UMass assistant women's 
gymnastics Coach John 
Calabria following the 
Minutewomen's performance 
in the 1977 AIAW National 
Championships which were 
held at Central Michigan 
University. 

And worth it it was, as the 
Minutewomen not only 
finished fourth in the nation, 
but they also placed three 
gymnasts in the top 15-all 
around competitors in the 
country. 

But that wasn't all. By 
virtue of their fine 
performances in the 
nationals, both Jill Heggie and 
Stephanie Jones qualified for 
the World University Games 
trials. 

It certainly was a fabulous 
way to end quite a fabulous 
season in which the 
Minutewomen won seven 
meets in a row in very 
convincing style after losing 
their final meet of the season 
to Penn State. 

But what made this such a 
satisfying season for Coach 
Virginia Evans was the fact 
that it was a very young 
team, consisting mostly of 
freshmen and sophomores, 
which made it all the way to 
the number four team in the 
nation. 

At the outset of the season, 
few people thought that the 
Minutewomen could match 
their seventh-place ranking of 
the previous year because 
there were six spots to be 
filled on the team. 

But after their first loss, the 
Minutewomen showed rapid 
improvement and in a meet 
against Temple, the 
gymwomen broke an all-time 
school scoring record with 
143.25 points. 

While the women enjoyed 
an outstanding season, the

You might not think that a

It was the year 



men shine in new league... 



After 31 games of a who- 
what-where-when-why analy- 
sis, in the final summation of 
the 1976-77 edition of the 
men's basketball team two 
words remain intact - talent 
and inconsistency. 

It was the former which led 
the Minutemen to their second 
straight 20-win season, high- 
lighted by a pair of dramatic 
wins against highly-touted 
Rutgers University. It was the 
latter which produced 11 
losses, the most demoralizing 
of which were a pair of upset 
setbacks to lowly Penn State 
and New Hampshire, and a sea- 
son ending, 81-71 loss to Vil- 
lanova in the NIT. 

Prior to the start of the sea- 
son, it was a time of anxiety 
and anticipation for UMass. 
Gone was the Yankee Confer- 
ence for the Minutemen, as 
they prepared for competition 
in the newly-formed Eastern 
Collegiate Basketball League. 
Skeptics doubted that UMass 
could compete with basketball 
programs of the caliber of 
Rutgers, Villanova, West Virgin- 
ia or George Washington. 

They were wrong. 

When it came to raw talent, 
UMass proved it could match 
up with any of these teams. 
With a starting five of juniors 
Alex Eldridge and Derick Clai- 
borne in the backcourt, and 
seniors Jim Town and Mark 
Donoghue and junior Mike 
Pyatt up front, make no mis- 
take about it, this team could 
play. 

But did this team want to 
play? 

Granted, when the likes of 
Rutgers, Holy Cross or Provi- 
dence College marched onto 
the court, the Minutemen 
wanted nothing more than to 
be at their best. Conversely, 
when the Harvards, Maines 
and Northeasterns rolled in, 
one could very well use the 40

...women lia?ie best season 







It began with a two-point 
loss, and it ended with a two- 
point loss. 

But that doesn't even begin 
to tell what happened during 
the UMass women's basketball 
team's 1976-77 season. 

For the past year was per- 
haps the most exciting, the 
most thrilling and the most re- 
warding of any that UMass 
women's basketball fans have 
seen. 

The 1976-77 edition of the 
Minutewomen entered the sea- 
son with many questions to be 
answered. 

-How would the team fare 
against the likes of Queens Col- 
lege, St. John's and Southern 
Connecticut? 

-How would the Minutewo- 
men adapt to the coaching 
style of Mary Ann Ozdarski, 
who stepped off a high school 
court in Vermont onto a 
25,000 student college cam- 
pus? 

-Would Lu-Ann Fletcher have 
the muscle to compete against 
the likes of opposing centers? 

-And finally, how would a 
freshman backcourt of Sue Pe- 
ters and Sue Henry adapt to a 
team-oriented system of play? 

The answers to these ques- 
tions turned out better than 
anyone had ever imagined. 

UMass compiled an 18-5 re- 
cord, won the state champion- 
ship and was the third-seeded 
team in the Eastern Regionals. 
And although the Minutewo- 
men lost in the quarterfinals in 
a heart-breaking way, they in- 
deed established themselves 
as one of the top teams in the 
northeast. 

Ozdarski employed a team 
style game in which no one was 
the workhorse and no one was 
the star. Instead, everyone was 
equal, everyone got her 
chance to help out the cause. 

It showed in the final statis- 
tics. Although Sue Peters led

minute display as a replace- 
ment for Sominex. 

This was the script for the 
regular season, but the two 
post-season tournaments - the 
ECBL league championships in 
the Spectrum in Philadelphia, 
and the National Invitational 
Tournament in New York 
peaked in intensity. 

REGULAR SEASON - Incon- 
sistency at its best (worst?). 
Fans soon realized that a lead 
with this team absolutely would 
not last. No one was ever se- 
cure. 

The Minutemen earned their 
reputation for blowing leads 



early in the year when they saw 
an 11-point advantage with 
four minutes left against Holy 
Cross vanish. The result? Holy 
Cross burned UMass, 92-85 in 
overtime in the opening round 
of the Colonial Classic at Bos- 
ton Garden. 

The Minutemen twice squan- 
dered big leads against UConn. 
In the first meeting, guard Clai- 
borne, who along with Town 
was the most consistent per- 
former throughout the year, 
hit a bank shot with two sec- 
onds left to give his team an 
81-80 victory after blowing a 
15-point advantage. 

In the next meeting, UMass 



held a 65-55 lead with 1:27 left 
in the game. Aided by the care- 
lessness of the Minutemen, the 
Huskies promptly sliced the 
margin to a point, only to have 
Tony Hanson miss two foul 
shots with four seconds show- 
ing on the clock. 

Again, UMass held a big ad- 
vantage in the Rutgers game, 
but the lost lead won't be re- 
membered nearly as much as 
the final shot when Pyatt, arms 
raised high above his head, 
sank an 18-footer at the buzzer 
to send the partisan fans into 
delirum with an 82-81 upset 
win. 

Two games later, the same 



UMass team lost in triple over^ 
time to UNH. 

ECBL TOURNAMENT 

UMass vs. Rutgers in opening 
round play. In a game muchj 
like that of the regular season 
UMass opened up a big lead a1 
halftime, saw it disappear even 
quicker, and held on for a 78-744 
win as Pyatt scored 26 pointss 

In the next round, Duquesnef 
upset the Minutemen, 89-82 asi 
the Dukes went on to captures 
the tournament. UMass fin-i 
Ished third. 

NIT - After psyching itself fori 
the league tournament, the NIT1 
was a letdown for UMass fol-' 
lowing its lose-a-big-lead script.

the team in scoring, averaging 
16.9 points-per-game, several 
otiner players averaged seven 
points or better. 

And Fletcher did herself 
proud against her taller foes. 
Although only 5-foot-ll, she 
played tough and made her 
presence known on the boards. 

The guard tandem, mean- 
while, supplied the missing in- 
gredient that led the Min- 
utewomen to success. Peters 
led in scoring, while Henry 
averaged six assists a game 
along with providing some tre- 
mendous outside shooting. 

Nancy O'Neil and Chris Ba- 
sile, the two senior co-captains 
and starting forwards, excelled 
at their jobs. O'Neil was second 
high scorer and rebounder on 
the team while Basile was the 
fourth leading rebounder and 
chipped in with heady defen- 
sive work. 

But other factors entered 
into this exciting season. An- 
other, less-heralded freshman, 
Maura Supinski, came on 
strong with aggressive re- 
bounding, shot blocking and 
strong inside offensive work. 
She was one of the "super- 
subs" who came off the bench 
to spell the starters. 

Another bench standout was 
Cheryl Carey, a hard-nosed de- 
fensive player and Ginny Pee- 
bles, who came off the bench 
to spell Fletcher in key situa- 
tions and was a big help with 
her rebounding prowess. 

The Minutewomen set many 
team records during the sea- 
son, including most consecu- 
tive victories (nine), most wins 
in a season (18), most points 
and most rebounds. 

Wins included a one-point de- 
cision over nationally-ranked 
Queens College, a seven-point 
win over St. John's and two 
regular-season demolitions of 
arch-rival Springfield. 

But the big one, the quarter- 
final matchup against the 
Chiefs in the Eastern tourney, 
was the one that got away. Had 
UMass won, they may have 
gone on to the championship.

inexperience liiirts matmeiii 



After getting off to a rather 
slow start under first-year 
coach Dave Amato, a young 
and relatively inexperienced 
UMass wrestling team turned 
things around midway through 
the season and began to show 
noticeable improvement 
match after match, finishing 
the season in strong fashion. 

The Minutemen climaxed 
their strong season-ending 
with a surprising third-place fin- 
ish in the New England Colle- 
giate Wrestling Championships 
which were held at URI. UMass 
claimed a pair of champions, as 
senior Dennis Fenton once 
again captured the 
heavyweight crown and Kevin 
Griffin won top honors in the 
150 lbs. division. 

With only five seniors on the 
squad this year, the matmen 
got off to a slow start at the 
beginning of the season, as 
their inexperience showed in 
their early matches against 
strong and not-so-strong oppo- 
nents. However, about midway 
through the season, in a qua- 
drangular meet at SUNY/AI- 
bany, the Minutemen showed 
signs of turning their falling 
tide, as they won two of the 
three matches they were in 
and the one that they lost was 
only by a few points. 

"That weekend was probably 
the turning point of our sea- 
son," said Amato, a former 
UMass wrestler under late 
Coach Homer Barr. "It was at 
that point in our season that 
we became a team." 

From that point on, Amato 
got consistent performances 
from Fenton, Griffin, Dana Cor- 
mier and Larry Otsuka, as the 
UMass grapplers showed ev- 
eryone that they were definite- 
ly a team to contend with. In 
victory and defeat, Amato was 
pleased with the encouraging 
performances of his wrestlers 
during the final half of the sea- 
son, as they made several good 
showings including a couple of 
impressive upsets.

If you followed the trials and 
tribulations of the UMass 
men's or women's swimming 
teams this year, you were cer- 
tainly in for a rollercoaster ride. 

It was just that kind of sea- 
son for the UMass men and 
women. They would reach high 
peaks against some of the 
area's best swimming teams, 
but then they would reach the 
depths when they lost to teams 
they should have beaten easily. 

The men's team had an off- 
year with a 4-8 record while 
the women split even in their 
12 meets with a 6-6 record. 

Although the Minutemen had 
an off-year as a team, it didn't 
overshadow some of the fine 
individual performances turned 
in by Ben Croker, Dave 
Boucher, Russ Yarworth, Fred 
Lombardi and Tom Bondaruk. 

The women also had their 
share of fine individual perfor- 
mances from Deb Schwartz, 
Theresa Totin, Rachel Mack 
and Lisa Hembrough.

A mid-season slump turned 
what had been a promising 
year for the \°il^-ll UMass 
hockey team into one of frus- 
tration and missed opportuni- 
ties. The team failed to make 
the Division II playoffs for the 
third consecutive year and 
ended up with an 8-13-1 overall 
season record. 

Composed mostly of seniors 
and juniors, the team skated 
into the season expecting to 
extend its 1975-76 hot streak 
of eight wins out of their last 10 
Division II games. 

The Minutemen spurted to a 
3-1-1 record and entered in- 
tersession 1977 with a 4-3-1 
slate and the hope that history 
would repeat itself after the 
break. 

That hope, however, failed to 
materialize when the team won 
only four games in 15 at- 
tempts. The skaters could 
manage only 21 goals in a 10- 
game stretch that lasted a 
month. 

"I know in my heart that we 
were a better team than our 
record showed," coach Jack 



Canniff said. "If we could have 
played some of those games 
over, things might have come 
out a little bit different." 

Pressing to score as the 
drought grew longer, the basic 
defensive game of the Minute- 
men started to fall apart. The 
opposing team would get sev- 
eral breakaways because the 
UMass forwards went too deep 
into the zone in an attempt to 
score. 

Despite the lack of scoring, 
the team did have some high- 
lights that made the season dif- 
ferent from any other. And 
some of these had nothing to 
do with the game on the ice. 

-When Coach Canniff broke 
his ankle during practice, stat- 
istician Gary Castaline helped 
out on the bench while the 
hockey mentor stood outside 
the bench area on his crutches 
and directed the team from 
there. 

-The team carried three goal- 
tenders, all seniors, and some- 
how for the past three years 
they remained the best of 
friends. Dana Redmond, Doug

Janik and John Riley competed 
for the same spot for the last 
three years. Redmond had the 
most ice time, being the 
team's main goalie for three 
years. 

-Senior defensemen Brian 
McCormack and Bob Jefferson 
had been a tandem since they 
were sophomores and had 
played the steadiest defense 
on the team. 

-Overcoming a 2-0 first-peri- 
od deficit, Billy White scored 
the game winner at 4:35 of the 
overtime period to lift UMass

past Hamilton College, the 
team that beat them out for 
the last playoff spot the year 
before. 

Hamilton scored a goal 22 
seconds into the game and its 
second two minutes later, and 
the thoughts of the previous 
year's 10-0 loss went through 
the players' heads. But the 
Minutemen hung tough and 
scored two goals in the second 
period when they were a man 
short for most of the period. 

Because UMass was in the 
penalty situation so much, 
Redmond had to face 49 shots 
in the game while the Hamilton 
goalie faced only 26 shots. 

The game with Babson Col- 
lege was cancelled when the 
referees failed to show up. 
Babson had requested that the 
starting time be moved up and 
had contacted everyone ex- 
cept the officials. 

In a year when few things 
went right on the ice, it was the 
little things that made the sea- 
son more memorable than just 
another box score.

. . . the winter season /171 



When Jack Canniff came to 

UMass in 1967 to coach the 

school's varsity hockey 

program, he was promised by 

the Athletic Department that 

within the next three years 

that he would have a new ice 

hockey arena which the 

wandering Minutemen skaters 

could call their own. 

However, 10 years later, 

there is still no hockey facility 

on campus and the early 

optimism has been soured by 

years of frustration. 

Then, around 1972, the 

UMass hockey program began 

to take a dive. 

"By that time it just got 

increasingly difficult trying to 

recruit top-notch hockey 

players to the school," 

Canniff recalled. "Whenever 

recruits came to visit the 

school, the first thing they 

wanted to see was the 

hockey rink, and all that we 

could tell them was that we 

were promised one. 

"While other schools 

offered their recruits full 

scholarships and had the 

luxury of a nice hockey 

facility, all we could tell our 

recruits was of the financial 

and educational benefits of 

going to UMass." 

Then in the spring of 1974, 

the hockey program received 

a further setback when the 

school's Athletic Department 

announced that it was going 

to expand its women's 

programs and that whatever 

scholarship money was given 

to the hockey program would 

now be taken away. 

However, amid all the 

setbacks, the UMass hockey 

program managed to stay 

very much alive and hold its 

own against more formidable 

opponents. 

Just before the end of the 

spring semester, the UMass 

Athletic Department made yet 

another cutback in the 

hockey program. This time it 

was stripped of its junior 

varsity team. 

"We have suffered cutbacks 

in the past," Canniff said, 

"but the elimination of the JV 

hockey team is really going to 

hurt us."

Concentration 
On Transportation 

Making it to classes on time can often be as 
difficult as making them at all. Investing in a 
bike is an economical and feasible solution. 
And these days there are bikes which fall into 
countless categories ranging from a Schwinn 3- 
speed, to a moped, a Harley Davidson 1200, 
and everything in between. Cycling across 
campus can be a real challenge. It takes a pro to 
get from one end to the other without bump- 
ing into at least one slow-moving wanderer. 
During winter however, icy paths deter even 
the most enthusiastic cyclists. For those and 
others there is another alternative (besides hi- 
bernation, that is) — the bus system. UMass has 
the distinction of having the largest free transit 
system in the world. There are, however, a few 
disadvantages to the bus system. For instance, 
at roughly 8:45, 9:50 etc. it can be more than 
mildly amusing to be at the stop beside South- 
west. 

At least two thousand people, most of them 
very large, attempt to board the bus at these 
times. This is, of course, complicated by the 
fact that the bus is usually half full by the time it 
reaches the stop. So, even though the Student 
Senate of nineteen sixty-something is to be 
commended for providing the best transit sys- 
tem this side of the Harvard-Ashmont line, 
there are still a few shortcomings for which 
alternatives must be pursued. 

To gain a better perspective on this problem 
we interviewed a young ambitious student, 
Christopher Airborne, who is pursuing a BDIC 
in Alternative Commuting Systems Applicable 
to Large Universities. At the time of the inter- 
view we found Airborne on the nineteenth 
floor of Kennedy Tower tying a rope onto the 
back of the window latch. "What on earth are 
you doing?" we asked. "Not on earth at all," 
said Airborne. "I have this idea, see, that if a 
rope could be extended from this window to 
the dumpster outside of WMUA in the Engi- 
neering parking lot, an engineering student 
could swing on a clothesline wheel down 
across the campus and cut fifteen minutes of 
bus time as well as allow someone else to get on 
the bus." 

"Brilliant!" we said. "What else have you de- 
veloped?" 

"Well I'm also working on a way to use wind

One of the more prevalent forms 

of transportation around the 

UMass area is that of sticking 

one's thumb out and hoping 

that some kind soul will be 

generous enough to 

stop and give a ride. 

Rumor has it that 

Volkswagons are 

the nicest 

vehicles, that they 

have the most 

consideration lor 

the wheelless. 

But according to 

Massachusetts 

slate law . 



\ 



. . . hitchhiking 

on any road in 

Massachusetts is 

illegal. Then 

how come there 

are so many people 

"bummin' rides" on 

the sides of the 

roads ^ Because the 

law isn't enforced in 

Massachusetts except 

on major highways. 

Also, the police in 

Amherst understand 

the student situation 

and the difficulties in 

getting around, and ] 

therefore are lenient in • 

ignoring the offenders.

power to propel students across the campus," 
he said. 

"How so?" we asked most interestedly. (?) 

"Well have you ever tried to walk by the 
library in the middle of the winter? It can be 
pretty tough." 

"We know, we had a friend who got stopped 
short as he came around the corner once and 
stood there from December 16th until spring 
break." 

"Yes that's just the wind I have in mind, but 
we can use it to our advantage," Airborne said. 

He continued, "If people going west will 
walk on the east side and people going east will 
walk on the west side they can wear this jacket I 
invented -" He held out the jacket for us to see. 
it looked like a parachute. 

"This looks like a parachute," we said. 

"It is," he answered. "If you unfurl it with the ^ 
wind to your back you are propelled at 147 
m.p.h. in the direction you were going." 

"Has it been tried?" 

"Yes, two students tried it last winter in both 
directions." 

"Was it successful?" 

"There are still a few bugs," Airborne said. 
"One student ended up plastered to Machmer 
and the other forgot to duck at the Southwest 
bridge." 

Then Airborne smiled at us and said, "I am 
looking for someone to try my new invention, 
the Clothesline Over Campus." 

"Ah, sorry," we said. "It's 12:30, we are right 
on time for the 12:20 bus, if we take our time."

Pierpont's "cupcake" is actu- 
ally called a yurt, which is an 
adaptation of a Mongolian hut 
— which nomadic Mongolian's 
once used. Although their huts 
were made of leather and 
cloth, UMass' version was cre- 
ated out of wood. Bill Cow- 
perthwaite, director of the Yurt 
Foundation, designed this 
model and another near Farley 
Lodge which housed him until 
it was sold. S.W.'s Inquiry pro- 
gram paid for the projects at a 
cost of $500 each. The yurts 
were built by students under 
Cowperthwaite's supervision. 
The idea behind a yurt is to 
serve as an inexpensive, self- 
maintained structure to be 
used as a classroom, warming 
hut or meditation den. 



Even though UMass already 
offers the largest no-fare transit 
system anywhere in the world, 
it looks as though some major 
changes are underway. If ail 
goes well, in that a Federal 
Grant is approved, 26 new bus- 
es will appear on the UMass 
scene by spring of '78. Of those 
26 buses, 14 will replace the old 
models. But, 12 extra buses 
have also been proposed. The 
new buses valued at $82,000 
apiece will provide air condi- 
tioning and radio equipment. 
Sixty-five per cent of the costs 
will be suDsidized by the Pio- 
neer Valley Transit Authority, 
who will own the buses and 
lease them to UMass. UMass 
will only end up paying 10 per 
cent of the total costs, or one 
per cent for ten years. 




He may be known as the 
"Campus Indian," but ask your 
neighbor who he was and 
they'll probably respond with a 
shrug. Mettawompe, alias 
Nattawasswet and other Nor- 
wottuck Indians were at one 
time the original land owners 
of what is now Amherst. In 
1674 he and other Indians of 
the same tribe, Wadanummin, 
Squiskheag and Sunkkama- 
chue, sold the tract of land to 
some white men for "eight 
fathom of wampum." At one 
time, Amherst College 
changed the name of Mt. Toby 
to Mettawompe. Similarly, 
UMass had once named its ath- 
letic teams the Redmen- in the 
spirit of Mettawompe himself, 
but the title has since been 
changed to the Minutemen.

Friday, May 20, 1977, began the 
big final weekend for UMass sen-

with bands, beer, and old buddies - 
as well as appearances by Chancel-

And the next morning, even before 
anyone had a chance to recover 
from the festivities - it was time to

Approximately 6,000 graduates 
and undergraduates received their 
degrees while families, friends, and 
faculty joined in the celebrating. 

Only the foreboding addresses 
given by the Chancellor and Presi- 
dent Wood cast shadows on an oth- 
erwise sunny day. Students were 
enriched by the wit and wisdom of 
fellow graduates Bryan Harvey and 
William Parent, who delivered

Commencement addresses. It was a 
day for rejoicing and reminiscing 
... for hugging everyone, clowning 
around and posing for pictures. 
And going to parties, and giving 
parties . . . and it was all over much 
too quickly. Was it really all over? 
Had four years passed in such a 
short time? 

As the new alumni made their 
exodus from their alma mater, one 



could not help but wonder what 
would lie ahead - would the trip 
into the real world — adjustments 
and new Hfestyles-be as good as the 
time at UMass had been? Would 
the time ahead offer the challenges, 
fulfill the dreams of the years just 
past? One could tell by the gradu- 
ates that somehow it was going to 
be even better.

Puryear Report Unleashes Heated Controversy 



A report released by the Vice- 
Chancellor, Paul Puryear, on March 
24 concerning the reallocation of re- 
sources within the university caused a 
storm of controversy between the ad- 
ministration and faculty. 

The memo was based on a report 
by the Academic Program Review 
Task Force, a group of administra- 
tors and Faculty Senate representa- 
tives, proposing a reallocation of re- 
sources within the university based on 
student demand, enrollment trends 
and student-faculty ratios. 

While some of the memo's sug- 
gestions had been greeted with accep- 
tance, usually the recommendation 
for more faculty, the most outspoken 
reaction came from departments that 
would be eliminated or cut back. 

The elimination of the Slavic lan- 
guages and the Asian Studies depart- 
ments within five years caused the 
most immediate and negative reac- 
tion. 

Also in the plan, which suggested 
the cut-back of 28 faculty members, 
there was to be a decline in the facul- 
ty of the English and Journalism, 
French, Italian, German, History, 
and Philosphy departments. 

Puryear and Chancellor Ran- 
dolph W. Bromery admitted in an in- 
terview later that they had expected 
an unfavorable reaction. Puryear 
thought this was the result of the uni- 



versity doing "very little long range 
planning in the past three years." 

Conceivably, the administration 
was surprised by student and faculty 
reaction. 



In a heated discussion on April 7, 
the Faculty Senate members voiced 
extreme disapproval of the manner in 
which the proposal was introduced. 

One professor at the meeting said 



the memo was in clear violation of 
university governance. Puryear disa- 
greed because while faculty must be 
drawn in on academic matters, he did 
not feel this proposal fell into that 
category.

Hampshire, UMass Students 
Protest Schools' Ownership 
of South African Stocks 



The problem of complicity in lo- 
cal colleges affected the five college 
area during April and May as stu- 
dents protested both UMass and 
Hampshire College owning stock in 
companies operating in South Africa. 

The results and the tactics were 
different at each school. 

Hampshire College sold some of 
its stock which had South African 
connections on May 9. President 
Charles Longsworth announced that 
$19,000 in common stock in Interna- 
tional Harvester, Clark Equipment 
and Exxon would be sold. 

Longsworth said the decision on 
whether to sell $20,000 in Texaco 
stock would wait until he had con- 
tacted Harold Johnson in Florida. 
Johnson is the founder of the college. 

The announcement ended a four- 
day occupation by students of the 
Coles Science Center-Administration 
Building. 

While Hampshire College divest- 
ed itself of some of its slock, UMass 



Trustees acknowledged an additional 
$20,000 in stocks in corporations op- 
erating in South Africa, despite the 
appointment of a committee a month 
before to investigate whether these 
firms supported apartheid policies of 
South Africa. 

The report came at the May 4 
Trustee meeting in Boston. The re- 
port on the activities of the 20 corpo- 
rations in South Africa was due in the 
middle of May. 

The committee was named after 
about 175 students marched on 
Whitmore in inclement weather on 
April 5. The South African Support 
Committee (SASC) lead the group 
down from the New Africa House, 
through the Hatch, to the Collegian 
offices, and then to Whitmore. 

Students lined the ramp and lis- 
tened to former Student Government 
Co-President Jay Marlus discuss 
plans to pressure the four other col- 
leges in the area to divest their assets 
in South Africa. 




Unseasonal 
Snow Storm 
Hits N.E. 



Two days after the Spring Con- 
cert was held in warm, sunny weath- 
er, New England and UMass was 
shoved back into the harsh realitie; of 
winter. 

An unseasonal snow storm buffet- 
ed the New England region and 
freezing temperatures along with it 
threatened crops, closed schools and 
shut down electricity. 

In Western Massachusetts, as 
many as 7,500 homes were without 
electricity. 

The Massachusetts Turnpike low- 
ered its speed limit to 40 miles per 
hour in some areas. 

Wide loads and double trailers 
were not allowed to travel on the 
turnpike due to slippery conditions. 

The National Weather Service 
said the latest snowfall on record for 
the Boston area was May 11, 1940, 
but "that didn't add up to anything 
on the ground," like this one did. 

While 7,500 homes lost electricity 
in Western Mass., between 18,000

to Northeast Utilities. 

Only 800 southern Vermont 
homes, however, went without power. 

"Limbs are falling on our lines as 
fast as we can fix them," a spokes- 
man for Massachusetts Electric Co. 
said in the middle of the power fail- 
ure. 

A day after the storm, some com- 
munities were still without power. 

One foot of snow fell in Great 
Harrington and more was reported in 
surrounding hill communities. 



England was hit by a full-fledged snow storm on May 9. 



Flying Club Plane 'Totaled' in Crash 



The UMass Collegiate Flying 
Club bought a new plane on April 20. 
That was because the old plane 
crashed on April 11. 

The club bought a new Cessna 
150, a 1976 model that had been 
"used very little", for $11,900. 

"Insurance guaranteed us $5,000 
on the other plane, $300 of which is 
deductible, so we got $4,700 from the 
insurance company, "Jeff Phillips, 
vice-president of the Flying Club 
said. 

"Initiation fees, dues and revenue 
collected from members flying will 
pay the additional cost," said Phil- 
lips. 



According to Phillips, the club 
had been planning to trade in their 
plane. 

"The fact that the 343 (the last 
three call letters of the plane) crashed 
just speeded up the process," said 
Phillips. 

The crash in the old plane oc- 
curred when the pilot was attempting 
to land at the Turner Falls airport. 

No harm came to the two passen- 
gers, but there was substantial dam- 
age to the plane and the surrounding 
area. 

The two occupants were pilot-in- 
structor Francis Sullivan, who oper- 
ated out of the airport, and a UMass 



'Sunshine Girl' Campaigns Against Gays 



MIAMI - The Florida Citrus 
Commission's "Sunshine Girl" start- 
ed a campaign to prevent passage of 
an ordinance in Dade County, Flor- 
ida protecting a homosexual's em- 
ployment rights. 

Anita Bryant, selling orange juice 
on television ads since 1968, helped 
organize a group in Dade County 
called "Save Our Children, Inc." 

She believed the local gay com- 
munity was "trying to recruit our 
children to homosexuality." 

Gay rights leaders termed her ef- 
forts "bigoted" and "fanatical" and 
tried unsuccessfully to pressure Flor- 
ida orange growers into taking her 
ads off the air. They also talked of 
boycotting Florida citrus products. 

Despite her opposition, Bryant 
pledged to fight the ordinance even 
"if my livelihood is stripped away 
from me." 

Bryant used the belief that the 



Bible said homosexuality is sinful as 
the basis of her campaign against 
gays. 

"Even if you do not believe in 
Holy Scripture, you must know ho- 
mosexuality is against nature," she 
said.

would have made Adam and Bruce."

Russian Vessels Captured 



BOSTON - The captain of a Rus- 
sian trauler seized off the coast of 
Nantucket Island, pleaded guilty to 
charges of violating the U.S. fishing 

laws. 

Aleksandr Gupalov, captain of 
the 275-foot stern trauler Tara Shev- 
chenk, was given a nine-month sus- 
pended sentence and was fined 
$10,000. In addition, the Soviet gov- 
ernment was assessed $240,000 in 
fines. 

The trauler, the first of two 
grabbed by the Coast Guard off the 
shore of Massachusetts, was the first 
seizure under the new 200-mile limit 
Fishery Management and Conserva- 
tion Act of 1976, which went into 
effect on March 1. 



Mass Senate Ousts Colleague 



BOSTON - The Massachusetts 
Senate voted 28-8 in a four-hour 
emotional debate on April 4, to expel 
Senator Joseph DiCarlo of Revere. 

It was the first time in -the 200- 
year history of the legislature that a 
member was expelled. 

DiCarlo and Ronald MacKenzie 
(R-Burlington), were convicted in 
I^ebruary on charges of extorting 
$40,000 from McKee-Berger-Man- 
sueto Inc., a New York construction 



firm which had the lucrative contract 
to oversee construction at the 
UMass-Boston campus. 

MacKenzie had resigned after his 
conviction. 

DiCarlo briefly addressed his col- 
leaues and criticized them for not let- 
ting him produce evidence, "my 
hands are tied ... I register a strong 
protest " 



The Soviet trauler was allegedly 
taking three times its limit of river 
herring. The Coast Guard estimated 
that the ship caught more than 1.5 
million metric tons - more than the 
legal limit. 

The 18-year-old vessel had been 
seized by the Coast Guard cutter De- 
cisive, and had been brought into 
Boston where all of the fish which 
had been caught were unloaded. 

After the trial, the legal limit was 
loaded back onto the Soviet fishing 
ship. 

Two days after the capture, the 
Coast Guard pulled the mother ship 
of the Russian fishing fleet into Bos- 
ton Harbor. 

The Soviet transport ship An- 
tanas Snechkus, allegedly had 11 
metric tons of illicit fish. 

The ship was forced into Boston 
Harbor on April 12 when Coast 
Guard inspectors found blocks of cod 
and perch, two species prohibited by 
the limit, plus more than the allowed 
amount or river perch. 

While in port, the crew of both 
ships were forced to stay on board. 
Coast Guard sailors guarded each 
ship with bayonnets on their belts and 
M-16 automatic rifies slung over 
their shoulders.

Hearst Pleads 'No Contest' 



LOS ANGELES - Patty Hearst 
was sentenced to five years probation 
on May 9 for her involvement in a 
1974 crime spree. 

The daughter of Randolph Hearst, 
owner of the San Francisco Examin- 
er, pleaded "no contest" to the 
charges of assault with a deadly 
weapon and robbery while the dis- 
trict attorney's office dropped nine 
other charges against her, thus spar- 
ing her a second trial. 

She had already been convicted of 
a 1974 robbery of a San Francisco 
bank. 

She was sentenced to seven years 
in prison for that crime, but was out 
on $1.2 million bond pending the ap- 
peal of her case. 

Hearst's admission of "nolo con- 
tendre" was a surprise. In effect, she 
was at the mercy of the court. 

The action Hearst pleaded no 
contest to was when she sprayed 
Mel's Sporting Goods store in 
Inglewood, California with machine- 
gun fire to permit the escape of fellow 
Symbionese Liberation Army mem- 
bers William and Emily Harris. 

Prior to this trial, Hearst had 
been the lead witness in the trial of 
the Harrises. They were tried on 1 1 
charges, convicted of five and sen- 
tenced to 1 1 years in prison. 

The 23-year-old newspaper heir- 
ess entered her plea in a tiny, almost 
inaudible voice. Because she pleaded 
"no contest," Prosecutor Samuel 
Myerson said that the state would 
drop five other charges of assault, 
two of robbery and two of kidnap- 
ping. 

These were the same 1 1 charges 
the Harrises had faced. 

The terms of probation had sever- 
al conditions, one being that she 



make restitution to the owner of the 
sporting goods store she peppered. 

Other conditions had her seeking 
training or schooling and maintaining 
a residence under the direction of a 
probation officer. 

During most of the time she was 
in court, her parents were in atten- 
dance. 



Ask almost any student to list 
three words to describe UMass, and 
they will invariably be classes, people, 
and parties, but not necessarily in 
that order. 

Party. Pronounced par-tay! when 
gleeful ... or drunk. 

Especially in the spring. True, 
there are parties all during the year, 
but in the spring there are parties. 

The most publicized is the Spring 
Concert, which is sponsored by the 
Student Senate. Beer abounds here, 
as do the numerous groups and thou- 
sands of "guests". 

Then there is Spring Day, replete 
with hot dogs, sun, music, and of 
course, beer. 

Senior Day. The last UMass par- 
ty for most of the soon-to-be gradu- 
ates. This is the last time the seniors 
will see some of their classmates, 
roommates, and friends. And the first 
time for many students to meet such 
campus illuminaries as Chancellor 
Randolph "Bill" Bromery and Presi- 
dent Robert Wood. 

Ah, but it is the good times one 
wants to remember. Like the week- 
end of April 30 and May I. UMies 
had the choice of going to not just 
one party, there were four options 
that weekend. 

All bowed to the king of parties, 
Schlitz-a-rama. where three beers for 
a dollar were a drinkers' dream come 
true. 

An estimated crowd of 3,000 
turned out at the fourth annual 
Schlitz-a-rama. They were enter- 
tained by the bands Fate and Wind- 
fall, and by the ongoing contests 
throughout the day. 

Another highlight for the week- 
end was Quad Day, which lasted until 



10:00 p.m. There was plenty of soda 
for the tee-totalers, and beer for those 
with stronger tastes. 

Not only did people drink, listen to 
the music, lay out in the sun, drink, 
play frisbee, take pictures, drink, 
well, a lot was going on . . . 

. . . including the activities just up 
the hill at Sylvan. There, the festivi- 
ties began Friday night with the mov- 
ie Fantastic Planet and the music of 
the bands Conflict, Landslide, and 12 
O'clock High. The partying contin- 
ued through the day Saturday and 
finally came to a weary but cheerful 
close Sunday when the Sylvan Cul- 
tural Society presented R.B.S.P. and 
the Unity Jazz Ensemble. 

The fourth option for the weekend 
was to go to the May Day of the Hill 
celebration on Sunday. Five bands 
played at this party; two from the 
Pioneer Valley, The Pam Bricker 
Band and The Bailey Brothers Band, 
two from Boston, The Ellis Hall 
Band and The Atlantics, and the 
closing band, from the South Shore, 
Zachariah. 

Present at this festivity was a 
crowd of several thousand who con- 
sumed 70 kegs of beer. 

Yes, this was an unusual week- 
end, filled with lots of beer, talk.food, 
music, and sun . . . more than the 
usual weekend brings. It was a time 
for friends to get together for a relax- 
ing fun-filled time, the last before 
those rapidly approaching finals, and 
the terror of graduation and the 
thought of returning home for the 
summer. But those thoughts were re- 
pressed; everyone was intent upon en- 
joying themselves. 

And since this is UMass, a good 
time was had by all.

was also a puppet show, frisbee les-

Singing The Budget Blues 



Kevin Claffey 



After 15 years of growth by leaps 
and bounds, UMass students, faculty, 
and administrators found Gov. Mi- 
chael S. Dukakis' last budget propos- 
al tough to swallow. 

It seems that after the growth, 
which ran rampant through Amherst 
in the 1960's, and after merely main- 
taining what was already there which 
became necessary in 1975, UMass 
people would accept this move as the 
next logical step. 

Public higher education is no 
longer the lofty priority it once was 
ten years ago. The birth rate is de- 
clining steadily. People are not mov- 
ing to Massachusetts and many high 
school graduates are not pursuing a 
college education. These factors 
alone are persuasion enough to see 
that a re-structuring must take place. 

But, for those who don't ascribe to 
any of these theories, who disbelieve 
published reports and extensive stud- 
ies, let's bring it to personal terms: 
simple economics. 

No one living in Massachusetts 
has to be told about inflation, unem- 
ployment, and sky-rocketing taxes. 
Because of these problems, com- 
pounded with the poverty and urban 
blight, public higher education sim- 
ply cannot be first on the list of prior- 
ities. These are tight times when ev- 
ery dime must be utilized in a worthy 
spot. Education is just not as worthy 
as the other problems. 

People at UMass, especially stu- 
dents, don't seem to understand the 
rocky financial shape of the state. 
They firmly believe that there is a 
certain private stash of money in 
some legislator's cellar which can be 
used to pump up the education bud- 
get. 

Explaining that the state has ac- 



tually been forced to throw up its 
hands and say That's all there is' is 
futile. In this land of plenty, the chil- 
dren of the big boom years in the 
1960's cannot fathom that the state 
may have miscalculated, overspent 
and been on the verge of bankruptcy. 

Students enrolled in special trial 
programs are by far the most vocal 
advocates of an inflated higher edu- 
cation budget. The proponents and 
beneficiaries of these programs are 
beginning to creep from under tht 
rocks and make their opinions known. 
It certainly seems strange that all 
these projects with their acronyms 
and idealism are emerging from their 
self-imposed hiberation. 

When they were established they 
took their funds and retreated to the 
bowels of some obscure building nev- 
er to be heard from again until they 
were threatened with extermination. 

It does, however, seem a pity that 
all this screaming and crying is all for 
nought. There have been some gran- 
diose pleas issued, but any follower of 
the history of the budget, anyone who 
is vaguely familiar with the mechan- 
ics of the budgeting process, knows 
that proposals, threats and counter- 
threats are harmless and traditional. 

UMass-Amherst Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery has said that 
Dukakis' proposal might force him to 
lay off 700 workers, if enacted with- 
out change. It's quite obvious that 
this is the first counter-punch thrown 
in a fight which should entertain the 
hierarchy of state and UMass admin- 
istrators until the budget is passed 
and enacted. 

Bromery's statement is a scare 
tactic. He's brought the impersonal 
money figures to people terms. A 
very effective method but hardlv a

believable consequence. 

UMass President Robert C. 
Wood has said Dukakis' budget 
would have a "crippling effect on the 
faculty, staff and students of the uni- 
versity." President Wood sees his 
bastion of power within the state 
threatened by a man he has regarded 
as an adversary from day one. 

True, it can only be expected that 
Wood and Bromery would exagger- 
ate their pleas and claim disaster to 
secure their positions. But, their criti- 
cisms might be valid in that they, 
again, will have to learn to live with- 
out some of the extras they have 
grown accustomed to. 

Representatives from the newly- 
elected professor's bargaining unit, 
the Massachusetts Society of Profes- 
sors, claim that the jobs of professors 
are at stake now. But the official posi- 
tion of the MSP is that the "students 
would be the ultimate losers." Isn't it 
reassuring to know that the profes- 
sors aren't concerned only with their 
jobs, tenure and sick leave benefits 
but that the prime concern here is 
about the quality of education for the 
students? 

Dukakis has set his figure and 
Wood has called it impossible saying 
that the governor is $8 million, light. 
But, if prognastication be permitted, 
we shall find all parties saying they 
are pleased with the budget after its 
final passage. 

A compromise will be reached. It 
always has been and this year will not 
be much different. You can't fault 
Dukakis for trying to impose his aus- 
terity program nor can you say Wood 
or Bromery are being unfair for pro- 
tecting their interests. 

The real pillager in this ugly sce- 
nario is the student. The one who 
plays little if any taxes who sees eco- 
nomical public higher education as 
an inalienable right. 

These annual rites of spring do, 
however, serve the purpose of identi- 
fying the real villian, the selfish, un- 
caring students in this situation. It 
seems that the students emerge from 
the battle most tainted, not the politi- 
cians. 






- UMass Trustee Nancy Eddy 
said the future of UMass was good in 
a speech before the Professional As- 
sociation of the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Amherst (PAUMA) on 
April 1. She based her reasoning on 
the commitment to higher education 
by the Massachusetts Legislature 
and the supportive attitude of Am- 
herst toward the university. 

- Ira D. Trail, director of the 
UMass Division of Nursing handed 
in a one-line resignation on April 27. 
Eight other faculty members from 
that division had already resigned, or 
were resigned effective at the end of 
the school year. 

- The UMass Debate Union fin- 
ished with a 5-3 record at the Nation- 
al Debate Tournament to wind up 
their season 21st out of 400 teams in 
the nation. 

- Walkway barriers were erected 
at the Fine Arts. Center to prevent 
vehicles' access to that area and the 
area near the Campus Pond. 

- The Student Senate over-appro- 
priated the RSO budget. The Senate 
Co-ordinating Committee voted on a 
budget of $1,173,000 for FY 1977- 
78. Total revenue expected from the 
Student Activities Tax Fee was set at 
$1,1 09,500, netting a $63,500 deficit. 

- The charges against five stu- 
dents for violating campaign regula- 
tions in the Southwest Assembly ele- 
tions were dismissed in a May 5 trial. 
The charges of misuse of campaign 
materials were dropped when the 
prosecution could not produce suffi- 
cient evidence. The complaints 
stemmed from the phrase "For 
Southwest T-shirts call Jeff 546- 
5068" on the bottom of campaign ad- 
vertisement cards.

gI-%/ The 

On April 27, President Jimmy 
Carter proposed an energy plan to 
Congress which called for a halt to 
America's wasteful ways. 

Carter's program calls on the na- 
tion to make a number of sacrifices to 
reduce energy consumption. It has 
been described as a tough conserva- 
tion program which will affect every- 
one. It will provide Americans with 
incentives to conserve, but will re- 
quire them to use less and pay more 
for energy. 

"With the exception of preventing 
war," said Carter, "this is the great- 
est challenge our nation will face dur- 
ing our lifetime." 

Public reaction was mixed — 
some persons angry and distrustful 
that an energy problem exists, and 
others willing to meet the challenge 
and glad to learn that steps are being 
taken to solve the problem. 

The University of Massachusetts 
has an enormous appetite for energy, 
and while the future of Carter's plan 
and its impact are uncertain, it would 
undoubtedly cause changes at 
UMass. 

The university, however, will not 
be caught off-guard. UMass leads an 
active energy life, involving a large 
number of departments and profes- 
sional personnel who are working to 
develop improved methods of energy 
conservation. 

Following the Arab oil embargo 
and the resulting "energy crisis." an 
Energy Conservation Committee was 
formed at UMass. Since that time, 
the committee has created an energy 
policy of its own, and has implement- 
ed conservation efforts that have re- 



'Energy Level' At UMass 



duced consumption and saved mil- 
lions of dollars. 

Edward E. Simpson, Jr., planning 
office staff assistant and chairman of 
the Energy Conservation Committee, 
said, "Over the last four years, a 
whole series of needs in energy con- 
servation have been identified." 

Since fiscal year 1973, there has 
been an energy savings of 14 per cent 
at UMass. Additional savings, how- 



Most other schools have an average 
of 500.000 to 700,000 sq. ft., in fewer 
buildings. 

In fiscal year 1976, UMass paid 
Western Massachusetts Electric 
Company (WMECO), $2,259,935 
for 77,828,856 kilowatts of electricity 
and generated an additional 
10,757,000 kilowatts of power. Dur- 
ing the same period, $3,584,200 was 
spent to produce 1,240,068,060

ever, cannot be identified without 
spending more money — which the 
university lacks. 

Half of all energy consumption by 
higher education institutions in the 
state, or approximately 1 1 per cent of 
the entire Massachusetts energy bud- 
get, is used by UMass. 

The university has a total of 
8,165,000 sq. ft. of building space to 
heat, cool, and supply with electricity 
— and its facilities are spread out in a 
large number of separate buildings. 



pounds of steam from 41,330 tons of 
coal and 3,636,574 gallons of oil, ac- 
cording to Curtis T. Shine, semi-sen- 
ior accountant at the Physical Plant. 

Money to supply energy to ap- 
proximately 60 academic buildings is 
obtained through state funding. 
Without the help of state funds, it is 
unlikely that consumption at UMass 
will decrease further. 

Simpson said, "UMass needs to 
spend money to save energy at this 



point, and the state can't find a way 
to let it go." 

Federal funds have been lacking 
also. UMass Solar Habitat One. 
funded by the National Science 
Foundation and Energy Research 
and Development Administration 
among others, has been closed down 
indefinitely for lack of funds. The 
project consists of a 1 ,500 sq. ft. ener- 
gy-efficient dwelling, designed to 
demonstrate the capabilities of solar 
and wind energy for heating. 

A Comprehensive Employment 
Training Act (CETA) program has 
begun at UMass. Its purpose is to 
train participants to co'nduct energy 
surveys of 2,000 homes in seven dis- 
tricts across the state. They will in- 
form homeowners about methods to 
cut energy consumption and save 
money. 

The voluntary cooperation of stu- 
dents, faculty, and staff can also help 
UMass conserve energy. Simpson 
called it "the biggest untapped area 
requiring the smallest expenditure" 
which has not been given top priority. 

"In 1973. the gas crisis created an 
awareness of the energy problem that 
was short-fused. Some Americans 
don't believe there's a problem, and 
others become bored with old prob- 
lems and like to think they've been 
solved or have disappeared." 

There are many things the U Mass 
community can do to save energy on 
campus — awareness and acceptance 
of the situation is the first and most 
important step. 

The University of Massachusetts 
is ready to meet the challenge.

The most important message 
Governor Dukakis conveyed to the 
university community during his 
spring visit to campus was perhaps 
best summarized in his statement 
that "the university cannot be all 
things to all people." 



'Well-Meaning Bureaucrat' 



In the context he used it, that 
meant that UMass was going to have 
to concentrate its limited resources in 
those programs for which there was 
the highest demand — probably the 
career-oriented departments. And if 
that statement represented the gover- 
nor's vision of the university's future 
in the abstract, the "concrete" pro- 
posal was soon to follow in the form 
of Provost Paul. L. Puryear's five 
year plan for faculty distribution. 



Just as it seemed the campus was 
rallying around a common enemy — 
Dukakis' "level funding''' — a new 
controversy broke out that would ulti- 
mately all but disintegrate whatever 
unity had been developed. But Pur- 
year's plan was far more than another 
divisive attack on the university com- 
munity — it raised serious philo- 
sophical questions and presented ma- 



jor choices that — in light of the 
proposed budget — would no doubt 
have to be faced up to eventually any- 
way. 



The plan, which Puryear made 
public in a report issued on March 
24, recommended faculty position 
reallocations based on the provost's 
study of anticipated enrollments in 
the various departments, assuming a 
level funding budget. Although some 
of the report's specific proposals were 
unanticipated, the results were pre- 
dictable in at least a broad sense, re- 
flecting the national trend toward the 
career-oriented disciplines. Particu- 
larly controversial aspects were the 
recommendations to completely 
eliminate two academic programs 
within the course of five years — 
Asian Studies and Slavic Languages. 



Frustrations among faculty and 
students over the prospects of level 
funding aggravated what was from 
the very beginning destined to be a 
heated issue. Puryear himself soon 
became a highly accessible object for 
the venting of those frustrations, es- 
pecially with the faculty. It was an 



unpleasant and perhaps somewhat 
unexpected situation for the adminis- 
trator who had maintained a fairly 
low profile since taking over for for- 
mer Provost Dean Alfange. Puryear 
was hardly the ogre some of his crit- 
ics made him out to be. Nor was he 
much the tragic hero who had met 
with his final undoing. He was merely 
another well-meaning bureaucrat try- 
ing to do his job, however unpopular 
the tasks involved. 

In spite of the expected liberal 
arts faculty indignation over any 
threat to its vested interests (its aca- 
demic programs, its employment), 
the students have been making their 
choice more than evident through 
their continued desire to enter the 
fields of business and applied sci- 
ences. Sadly, that choice can only 
perpetuate the condition of a society 
which has become entrenched in the 
vicious circle of satiating its citizens 
with both products and money and a 
renewed craving for more of them. It 
is the liberal arts and sciences which 
hope to consider ways of improving 
the qiialily of life. To deny students 
their desired education in a world of 
uncertain employment would be eli- 
tist and unfair — yet to grant it 



seems folly. Perhaps the task of 
breaking out of that vicious circle 
must lie with those who are still 
stricken with the critical spirit and 
are dedicated enough to expose oth- 
ers until some sort of epidemic devel- 
ops. 

Per the campus norm, the Pur- 
year controversy was replete with a 
heavy dose of UMass politics — pro- 
tection of self-interest through innu- 
endos and overstatement. The out- 
come was. as it invariably is. turmoil 
and hard feelings all around. The ob- 
vious lesson that nevertheless remains 
unlearned is that members of the uni- 
versity community must forever 
strive to keep their sights fixed on the 
true sources of problems. 

As the coming of summer an- 
nounced the completion of the spring 
round, the governor must have felt 
quite satisfied with the outcome. The 
heat was off for him, at least tempo- 
rarily, and forces were so divided that 
effective oppostion seemed as distant 
as it had previously been. As more 
and more students joined Puryear's 
reserve army of the employable, one 
had to wonder if what little opposi- 
tion there was might not soon whither 
away to none at all.

Nixon Melts for Frost Interview 



Former President Richard M. 
Nixon answered questions concern- 
ing the Watergate scandal - but end- 
ed up revealing more of his personal- 
ity and feelings during the first Nix- 
on-David Frost interview, televised 
on May 4. 

"If I let down my friends, I let 
down the country, I let down our sys- 
tem of government," the 37th ex- 
President said at one point in the in- 
terview. 

Nixon was alternately combative, 
hesitant, contrite, and sober in the 
90-minute broadcast. 

No new, hard information was of- 
fered by Nixon about Watergate ac- 
tivities, but he did defend himself on 
several points. 

"Technically, I did not commit a 
crime, an impreachable offense. As 
the handling of the matter is con- 
cerned, it was so botched up. I made 
so many bad judgments. The worst 
ones, mistakes of the heart, rather 



than the head," Nixon said philo- 
sophically. 

Nixon reacted emotionally once 
during the interview, when he said his 
political career was over. 

"It snowballed and it wasn't my 
fault. I'm simply saying to you that as 
far as I'm concerned, I not only re- 
gret it, I indicated my own beliefs 
when I resigned. People did not think 
it was enough to admit mistakes. If 
they want me to get down and grovel 
on the floor, no. Never." 



Probation Enables 
Brown to Return 
to University 



Robert Earl Brown, a UMass stu- 
dent convicted of armed robbery of 
the McDonald's on Route 9 in Had- 
ley, was released from the Northamp- 
ton House of Corrections on April 19. 

His probation was granted in 
April at a hearing held at the House 
of Correction, and lasted for 15 min- 
utes. 

The probation enabled Brown to 
have more time to work to get a new 
trial. He said at the time that his 
probation was awarded that he would 
spend more time in the UMass li- 
brary law section doing research on 
his new motion for trial. 

Though his probation officer was 
based in Springfield, Brown said he 
would reside in Amherst to be near 
the library and also to rest. 

Brown also said he would like to 
attend law and business school after 
his graduation from UMass in May. 

The probation came after the at- 
tempt for a new trial brightened on 
March 13. 

In a final hearing that day, a sur- 
prise witness for the defense took the 
stand. This was done to show that 
Jerome Farrell, Brown's former at- 
torney, did not pursue all avenues of 
inquiry in the trial. 

Ellen Roy, who worked at Ken- 
tucky Fried Chicken along with two 
main prosecution witnesses, Deborah 
Cooke and Cathy Clark, called into 
question some of the investigative 
techniques of the case with her testi- 
mony. 



Trooper Ford, a prosecution wit- 
ness, and the main investigator on the 
case, testified prior to Roy. 

Ford answered questions from the 
defense about the apprehension of 
Brown at the UMass campus, the 
photographic array and a diagram of 
the witnesses and the robbers which 
was used in the trial of Brown. 

Clark and Cooke identified 
Brown as one of the participants in 
the robbery from a group of photos. 

The pair also identified Craeman 
Gethers, who was tried along with 
Brown in his first trial, and convicted 
of armed robbery. 

When Ford was on the stand, de- 
fense co-counsel Jeanne Baker asked 
him if he frequented the Kentucky 
Fried Chicken shop in August, 1974 
to discuss the case with Cooke. 

Ford answered "no" and said he 
couldn't recall how often he had vis- 
ited the establishment. 

In a two and a half hour testimo- 
ny, Roy called into question the prac- 
tices of the investigating team. 

Taking the stand after Ford, Roy 
told the court that Ford would often 
visit Kentucky Fried Chicken to talk 
to Clark and Cooke. "Approximately 
20 times," she said. 

The defense counsel tried to prove 
that all avenues were not explored by 
Brown's previous attorney. 

The third day of the hearing end- 
ed when Superior Court Judge Paul 
A. Tamburello decided to continue 
the hearing at a later date. 



Students Elected to Town Meeting 



Precinct Three of Amherst sent a 
slate of progressives to the Town 
Meeting in an election held April 3. 

The slate had a large number of 
UMass students on it, but more stu-

Blaze Severely 
Damages Home 

A one-alarm fire tore through one 
of Amherst's oldest buildings on 
April 28. 

The white, two-story wooden 
frame house, built in 1770, was occu- 
pied by eight people, all either 
UMass students, about to enter the 
university, or graduates. 

A normal box alarm alerted the 
Amherst volunteer Fire Department 
to come to the 6 Southeast St. resi- 
dence at 5:12 a.m. Five fire engines 
responded to the call. 

Firefighters said the age of the 
building caused the rapid spread of 
the fire and contributed to the extent 
of the damages. 




An early morning fire gutted one of Amherst's oldest buildings on 
April 28. A number of UMass students were living there at the time 



election of students to that organiza- 
tion ever. 

The election of students and pro- 
gressives foreshadowed a heated and 
controversial Town Meeting in May 
as one of the most liberal contingents 
of members ever were elected. 

In another election, William F. 
Field, UMass dean of students, was 
unopposed in his bid for election to 
moderator of the Town Meeting. 

There are eight precincts in Am- 
herst and other UMass students were 
elected, but in lesser numbers. 

Also in the election, Roger Jacque 
defeated Kenneth Mosakowski in the 
race for the one-year selectman seat, 
1,897 to 1,553. 

Nancy Eddy and Nathaniel Reed 
won the two three-year seats on the 
Amherst Board of Selectmen, getting 
2.399 and 1,905 votes respectively 
while loser Chauncey Simons re- 
ceived 1,503. 

Voter turnout was termed moder- 
ate by Town Clerk Estelle Matusko. 




Students and other protesters (left) march on the Seabrook, New 
Hampshire nuclear power plant site. Over 1,400 occupiers were 



arrested by police. Later at UMass (right) students campaign for 
support oj protesters in the form of bail money. 



Anti-Nuke Protesters Arrested En Masse 



Anti-nuclear power protesters 
who on May first occupied tlie Sea- 
brook, New Hampshire (N.H.) planl 
site spent nearly two weeks in N.H. 
armories after having been arrested 
on trespassing charges. 

The nuclear power plant, sched- 
uled to begin operation by 1980. 
would discharge water 39 degrees 
warmer than the usual temperature 
of the ocean water. Protesters said 
this process would have damaging ef- 
fects on the ocean environment. 

Throughout their confinement in 
the armories, many of those arrested 
charged they were mistreated during 
their arrest and also in the armory. 



N.H. Governor Meldrim Thom- 
son ordered the arrests 24 hours after 
2,000 demonstrators had marched 
onto the site and set up a tent city. 

The demonstrators declined to 
voluntarily leave the site after Thom- 
son and N.H. State Police Colonel 
Paul Doyon warned them of possible 
arrests. After Doyon issued a half 
hour warning, the 300 police brought 
to Seabrook from everywhere in New 
England, except Massachusetts, be- 
gan to arrest occupiers. Several news 
reporters and photographers were 
also arrested. 

School buses were used to trans- 
port the 1,414 arrested occupiers to 



Carter's Energy Package 



WASHINGTON - In a pair of 
speeches to the nation and Congress, 
President Carter outlined his energy 
proposal for the country. 

In a national television "fireside 
chat" on April 18, the President 
asked the nation to support his un- 
popular programs to conserve energy 
because "the alternative may be a na- 
tional catastrophe." 

In a speech before Congress on 
April 20, Carter said the proposal 
was "a thankless task" citing the al- 
ternative was a "crisis . . . could over- 
whelm us." 



Carter was aided in the construc- 
tion of his plan by energy advisor 
James Schlessinger. 

Despite standing ovations from 
Congress during his speech, members 
of that institution predicted a tough 
battle for his plan from many law- 
makers, lobbyists, and citizen groups. 
The gas pump tax seemed particular- 
ly vulnerable. 

"The tax bill, the dams, the eco- 
nomic package, they were all skir- 
mishes. This is the battle," said 
House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill. 



UMass Costs Increase 



Students will pay more for going 
to UMass in 1978 than they did this 
year. 

Due to an inflated economy and 
the cost of living increases that state 
employees will get, students will pay 
$249 more returning in the fall se- 
mester than they did in the spring. 

The tuition rate rose from this 
year's $480.50 to $615.50, an in- 
crease of $135. 

Dormitory costs also increased by 
$56, totaling $851 for the academic 
year. The price was formerly $795. 

The health fee will also rise from 



$108 to $124, a $16 hike. 

The Campus Center fee will also 
rise, despite the termination of its 
most valuable service, check-cashing. 
The Campus Center fee will be $79 in 
the fall semester, an increase of $15. 

Students on the meal plan will 
also pay more. 

The only fee the student had real 
control over was the Student Activi- 
ties Tax Fund (SATF). In a special 
referendum, the student body barely 
voted in the seven dollar increase, 
from $57 to $64. 



five National Guard armories where 
they were arraigned. All the protes- 
ters pleaded not guilty to the charges. 
Few decided to post bail. 

The trials, and probable appeal 
hearings, were expected to last all 
summer. 

The overnight occupation of the 
plant site was organized by the anti- 
nuclear power group. Clamshell Alli- 
ance, when an August 1976 demon- 
stration in Seabrook failed to hall 
excavation work. 

Anti-nuclear power protesters 
from all parts of the country partici- 
pated in the May Day occupation. 
The Western Mass. Clamshell Alli- 
ance sent about 300 demonstrators. 

The occupiers approached the site 
from four directions. Two groups 
marched along U.S. Route One and 
entered the site on a half-mile long 
access road, while another segment 
walked along railroad tracks which 
run through the site, owned by a 
N.H. public utility company. Public 
Service. 



In the morning, small motorboats 
transported the fourth group from 
the Hampton bridge by the ocean to 
islands in the salt water marshes. 

The protesters then waited for low 
tide to walk from the islands to the 
site. The groups spent the previous 
night camped on the islands, owned by 
anti-nuclear power people, or on oth- 
er area property of people sympathet- 
ic with their cause. 

All the occupiers were required to 
participate in "non-violent" work- 
shops held before the weekend. The 
Marigold Ballroom in Salisbury, 
Mass, just across the state line from 
Seabrook, was used for last minute 
"non-violent" workshops. 

Here at UMass, 57 year old Fran- 
ces H. Crowe conducted the work- 
shops in the Campus Center. 

During the workshops, the protes- 
ters participated in enacted arrests. 

The occupiers were split up into 
"affinity" groups of a dozen members 
each to avoid confusion during the 
occupation. 




Students participated in a dance marathon to benefit victims of 
Multiple Sclerosis. The marathon was held in the S.U.B. 









The Zing in Spring! 



Over 20,000 people were there. It 
lasted from 10:30 a.m. until 10:30 
p.m. There was beer. There was sun. 
And there were six good musical 
groups. 

It was UMass' Spring Concert. 

Held on May 7, it was one of the 
best ones to come off in recent mem- 
ory. It also ran late, true to form. 

Conjunto Libre was supposed to 
lead off at 10:30 in the morning - it 
was close - but the Latin band was 
still not on time. 

Melanie was next at 1 o'clock. 
The Woodstock veteran was sched- 
uled to go at noon with her mixed 
repertoire of jazz, blues, rock, gospel 
and country. 

It really started getting late when 
Richie Havens, that master of the 
guitar, started his act a 3:00 p.m., an 
hour and a half behind schedule. 

The Pousette-Dart band started 
close to 5 p.m. The boys from Boston 
worked their country-rock sound with 
electric and acoustic, and slide gui- 
tars for the enjoyment of the crowd. 



Procol Harum got started after 
the 90 minute performance of Pou- 
sette-Dart, and the British R&B- 
classical rockers from the mid-sixties 
played until sundown. 

Then the waiting got longer. The 
UMass Department of Public Safety 
was worried about the consequences 
of holding the concert past 8 p.m. 

Asking the crowd to move out of 
the seats in front of the stadium and 
onto the football field, the campus 
police watched to see if the crowd was 
unruly. Satisfying the police, the 
stage crew put up lights and South- 
side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes 
came out around 8:45 p.m. 

They didn't need any lights. They 
were hot and could have powered the 
entire university that night. 

When Southside had finished, a 
happy crowd filed out of the stadium, 
either to continue to party or go to 
bed (it had been a long day) and 
hopefully wake up without a hang- 
over.

Women's Art 

-Out of the Attic 

by Mary Ellen Lowney 



w 

W Woi 



'omen, since the notion of romanticism engrained itself into our society, are ideally 
thought of as artistic, earthy creatures who use their minds to baffle and bewitch their male 
counterparts. 



Social conditioning tends to reinforce 
this attitude in both men and women, 
encouraging women to be creative and 
leading men to expect it from them. 

Inevitably, the question arises — why 
do men dominate art in every form? The 
most famous, not to mention most 
wealthy musicians, dancers, actors, 
painters and writers have always been 
men. Until very recently, women did not 
even attempt to present their talents. 
Paintings, songs, and writings by women 
collected dust in attics and cellars. 

Women, however, are doing some- 
thing to change this. From March 6 
through 12, students here celebrated In- 
ternational Woman's Week. Irene Rich- 
ards, student activities program advisor, 
recruited much of the talent for Interna- 
tional Woman's Week. She called the 
event "an enormous success in terms of 
women relating to each other and unit- 
ing to celebrate womanhood." 

The history of this week goes back to 
1857, when women garment workers 
marched in New York City to protest 
their working conditions. They demand- 
ed a raise in pay, a ten hour work day, 
and equality for all women in work. They 
got nothing. Sixty-one years later, thou- 
sands of women workers marched again 
in New York, commemorating the first 
protest in 1857 and proclaiming March 8 
an International Woman's Day. Since 
then, women all over the world have 
celebrated this day in various ways. 

Due to the success of previous Wom- 
an's Days at UMass, this year the day ex- 
panded into a week of activities. 

Jazz singer Betty Carter, kicked off 
the week at the Fine Arts Center with a 
show that left the audience amazed at 
her talent. 



Two workshops on Monday, "Third 
World Women and Dance" and "Third 
World Women and Art" demonstrated 
the artistic expressions of women who 
are doubly oppressed as members of the 
Third World. 

A group of belly dancers from New 
York City performed Tuesday to a crowd 
of about 100 in the Student Union Ball- 
room. Enthusiastic but slightly awed, the 
men and women came to see a form of 
art that has traditionally been equated 
with oppressed and sexually exploited 
women, but were shown that it doesn't 
have to be that way. 

Friday, March 11, a double feature in 
the Student Union Ballroom opened 
with Suzanne Fox, pantomime, teacher, 
lecturer and one of the few solo female 
mimes in the world. Her show, "First Im- 
pressions," was a mixture of classic mime 
interpretation and slightly satiric skits 
based on her experiences and observa- 
tions as a woman. 

In true hard rock form, singer and gui- 
tar player Ellen McElwaine followed the 
mime with a two-hour set of wailing vo- 
cals and guitar. Thoughts of women gui- 
tar players usually bring to mind images 
of dainty folk singers, crying out the 
woes or praising the joys of love. Not 
McElwaine. She even dedicated one 
song, "Ain't No Two Ways About it — 
It's Love," not to a man but to her guitar. 
Self-confident, slightly satirical, and will- 
ing to give more of herself than a quiet 
song, McElwaine proved that a woman 
singer doesn't have to be the love-lost 
beauty we are accustomed to. 

Throughout the week, the Student 
Union Art Gallery presented the work of 
Carole Byard, a New York artist. Byard's 
work included painting, charcoal, and 



ink drawings. The show was "subtly po- 
litical," she said, but mainly a figurative 
representation of her impressions as a 
woman. 

The Women's Art Collective, a group 
of about 15 women who say they "are 
questioning the role of culture in soci- 
ety," had a week-long display in the 
Campus Center. Their art re-evaluates 
women's role in today's world and in- 
cludes painting, printing, music, poetry 
and sculpture. 

In April, the Third World Women's 
Center presented a week of programs in 
honor of African women. The seven days 
were a celebration of black women at 
UMass, using art as a medium to show 
the struggle of blacks, particularly wom- 
en, and how far they have come in a 
society that oppresses them. 

Melba Moore, black actress and sing- 
er, highlighted African Woman's Week 
when she appeared at the Fine Arts Cen- 
ter Friday, April 22. Sponsored by the 
Black Cultural Center and the Malcolm X 
Center, the show was a tremendous suc- 
cess. Moore performed to a full house 
with seemingly unlimited talent and en- 
ergy. 

The week also featured poetry read- 
ings by local Third World women, other 
workshops, a show by percussionist FHat- 
tie Fox and a play entitled DISTANT 
VOICES, written by Diane Hale and per- 
formed by UMass women. 

Both weeks were a success. But even 
at UMass, women artists say they have 
difficulty getting equal treatment. The 
weeks, even though only 14 days of the 
year, were nonetheless an excellent op- 
portunity for the campus to glimpse the 
diverse talents of the 51 per cent minor- 

ity. i^. 

APRIL - MAY/199 



If if s in your heart 



• • 



The energy generated by the Universi- 
ty Dancers warmed a large crowd during 
the cold month of February, with themes 
and styles in twelve pieces ranging from 
modern dance to a parody of classical 
ballet. 

Unique to the concert was that the 
organization, directing, choreography, 
lighting, costumes, sets and dancing was 
done solely by students. 

The University Dancers consist of 20 
members who are not all Dance majors. 
Each dancer has individual goals and 
styles, and whether it is jazz, modern, or 
ballet, concerts such as the February 
Dance Concert allow them to express 
their individual abilities while establish- 
ing emotional closeness with the rest of 
the group. 



...do it 



One of the University Dancers, Arthur 
Tuttle, has a love for jazz dance, which 
he acquired at the early age of five but 
didn't pursue until he was 25. Why? 

Arthur explains that he was inhibited 
about being a male dancer because of 
the stigmas attached with the label — he 
was embarrassed to wear tights. 

He says it took him quite a while to 
overcome his inhibitions, and he recalls 
walking into the dance studio wearing 
gym shorts. 

Now Arthur says he dons his tights and 
lets it happen, and he advises all lovers of 
dance, "If it's in your heart, do it!"

THE UNIVERSITY DANCERS 



200/INDEX ON ART 



The 
Belle 



Amhe 




With the ranging variety of entertain- 
ment presented at the Fine Arts Center, 
it would be difficult to pick a particular 
event which rose above the others, but 
for artistic perfection, Julie Harris as THE 
BELLE OF AMHERST received a star for 
intimacy with the audience. 

THE BELLE OF AMHERST attempted 
to cover the life and style of Emily Dick- 
inson, often considered the first lady of 
Amherst and certainly America's first 
great woman poet. 

Emily Dickinson was born in Amherst 
in 1830 into a New England Puritan heri- 
tage. She lived most of her life in "The 
Homestead," now a national historical 
landmark. There, she gained notoriety as 
an eccentric and romantic recluse until 
her death in 1886. 

She began writing when quite young. 



The title of the play stems from her self- 
appelation in an exuberant teenage let- 
ter. She wrote 1,775 poems. Works she 
submitted to editors were so daring in 
form and substance for the day that they 
defied classification, and thereby com- 
prehension. 

Performing as Emily Dickinson, Julie 
Harris was able to convey the magic of 
both women with her brilliant on-stage 
portrayals. Her two-hour monologue 
brought repeated positive reaction from 
the audience that ended with a rousing 
standing ovation. 

The winner of four Tony Awards, Miss 
Harris was nominated for a fifth Tony for 
her presentation of THE BELLE OF AM- 
HERST. As of this writing, the awards 
have not been presented. 

The story of THE BELLE OF AMHERST 



has traveled far beyond the Pioneer Val- 
ley, having been on Broadway for two 
years, and is being presented Europe by 
Harris andDirectorCharles NelsonReilly. 

After the performance at the Fine Arts 
Center, the Amherst Chamber of Com- 
merce thanked Julie Harris with the pre- 
sentation of a line drawing (above) by 
Margaret Robison, an Amherst artist and 
long time friend of Miss Harris. 

Robison has received international ac- 
claim for her drawings and paintings of 
Emily Dickinson. 

For the audience at the Fine Arts Cen- 
ter on April 7, the presentation of THE 
BELLE OF AMHERST was a trip back to 
the early days of Amherst, a look into the 
life of a great woman and a view of per- 
fection in acting.

on the studying considerably and began compiling the materi- 
als for our dissertation. 

"Van, when we actually get this all finished, what do you 
think we will get our degree in? I mean what will we call it? 
You know, I was thinking of something like, 'Ph.D. Awarded 
for the Search and Discovery of Intrinsic Motivation, with 
Marks of Distinction for Heroic Efforts on National Exchange, 
Including Concentration in Individual Programs and Skills in 
the Sciences, the Liberal Arts, the Fine Arts, General Stamina 
and Achievement in an Academic Setting, All Taken with a 
Grain of Salt.' 



"Come on Chris, who do you think you are. Bill Cosby? He's 
the only one I know of with a dissertation title that long. But I 
will buy the 'grain of salt' part." 

"Well, it was just a thought. I guess 'In Search of Intrinsic 
Motivation' really sums it all up." 

"Agreed. You know Chris, I'm glad the project is almost 
completed, but I'm really upset about the thought of having to 
leave. UMass has so much to offer, we'll be bored at home." 

"Look at it this way. Van. Not only have we accomplished a 
great deal, we can teach others what we have learned. We can 
also adapt some of the ideas found here, and improve some of

the programs at our school. After all, improvement and learn- 
ing are really what education is all about, right?" 

"Touche. I guess students at home would really be able to 
benefit from what we've learned here. I guess it won't be so bad 
going back." 

"Hey, why don't we hit the Blue Wall for one last Power- 
house?" 

"No thanks, Chris, you go ahead. I want to finish writing the 
conclusion." 




It was the end of our UMass career. Farewell to a terrific 
school and great people. Good-bye red tape and forms in tripli- 
cate. We had not fulfilled our original dream - we had im- 
proved upon it. We had found hundreds of sources of intrinsic 
motivation here, and they could be shaped for each individual. 
On the following pages of our study are photographs of some of 
the people we met here, students who realized their own 
dreams at UMass. They are the graduating class of 1977. I 
wonder if they are as sad to be leaving as we are? 

Well, as one of our friends always says, "we don't have to go 
home, but we can't stay here." 






I hope this brief explanation will serve 
to show that there are many alternatives 
open to the student within the School ^ 
Education and other departments with 
the university. I am now looking forwi 

to returning to school and am thankfu ,_ 

for finding out that such an opportunity is, 
available at UMass. Continuing in a ma- ; 
jor because "it's too late to change" is a 
misunderstanding held by many students. > 
If you sincerely want to make a change, j 
it's never too late.

Okay, so you're the type of person who likes to do something special, 
do things your own way. So here, at this university, you've found a way to 




262/MULTlPLE CHOICE 



marching to dliferent drummers 




For those seeking a special place and 
room to express their individual identi- 
ties, UMass has some good alternatives. 

The Veteran's Coalition for Commu- 
nity Affairs is active in the fight for "a 
decent standard of living for all people," 
and works toward that goal through its 
members who play an active part in 
sharing their skills and experiences with 
others in the community to promote so- 
cial change and work against racism and 
sexism. 

The People's Gay Alliance is dedicated 
to educating its members and others 
concerning what it means to have an 
"emotional and sexual preference for an- 
other of the same sex," while promoting 
civil rights for all people, and providing 
alternative events, especially for those of 
the gay community. 

The Lesbian Union deals with a simi- 
lar premise and provides "support, 
space, and a comfortable social atmo- 
sphere to educate the community." 

The Revolutionary Student Brigade is 
a progressive group on campus which 
supports special causes and activities, 
giving students the chance to get in- 
volved in current issues. 




SHOW YOUR INDIVIDUALITY/263

Every Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m., a 
large number of students n\eet in the 
Campus Center and have the chance to 
express themselves, share interests, pro- 
vides services, and show their individ- 
uality. And in doing this, they are mak- 
ing decisions which affect your life as a 
UMass student. The Student Senate, and 
the Budgets Committee (a senate sub- 
committee) are primarily responsible for 
one very important task - to allocate the 
money from the Student Activities Tax 
Fund (SATF) to various campus organi-

motion carries 



zations. This task in itself is very time 
consuming and difficult - there is simply 
not enough SATF money to go to all the 
groups who deserve it - thus causing dif- 
ficulties both internally and outside the 
senate. The basic job of student senators 
is of course, to represent their constitu- 
ency in voting on issues before the sen- 
ate - although many students feel their 
senators do not adequately represent 
them, but instead, voice their individual 
feelings. 

Does the motion carry? 





SHOW YOUR INDIVIDUALITY / 265 



a sporting eye viiew 
of tlie spring season 




Most people across this 
country equate baseball as 
the top sport during the 
spring season. However, such 
is not the case at UMass 
where the main topic of 
conversation during the 
spring is not about baseball, 
but rather about the Gorillas 
and the Gazelles. 

No, we are not talking 
about what to look for when 
you go on a safari to Africa. 
What we are talking about are 
the two most successful 
athletic teams on campus; 
the men's and women's 
lacrosse teams. 

The year 1977 was another 
banner season for both the 
men's and women's lacrosse 
teams. First of all, both 
teams featured outstanding 
upgraded season schedules, 
which created plenty of 
excitement in itself. 

Not only did the Gorillas 
play host to such nationally 
top-ranked teams as the 
University of North Carolina 
and Rutgers, but they also 
hosted the 1976 collegiate 
lacrosse champion, Cornell 
University. Meanwhile, the 
Gazelles, who are the new 
kids on the block with this 
being only their second 
season of existence as a 
team, not only improved their 
schedule but expanded it as 
well to a record 12 games. 

And the one thing which 
both teams shared in 
common was that they were 
both the top teams in New 
England. 

For the Gorillas, 1977 
certainly won't go down as 
their best season ever 
because they suffered three 
losses in 14 games. But you 
cannot always go according 
to just season records 
because they can be 
deceiving. 

Even though the 
Minutemen have had better 
season records, 1977 may 
very well go down as their 
best season ever because 
they managed to win 11 
games against some of the 
toughest competition in the 
nation. 

It is one thing to go 
undefeated when you play 
weak teams like Williams,

Holy Cross or Harvard all the 
time. But when your 11 wins 
come against teams like 
Rutgers, Syracuse, Cortland 
State and Brown, it certainly 
has to be more satisfying to a 
coach and the team. 

By virtue of their fine 
regular-season play, the 
Gorillas made it into the 
NCAA playoffs for the second 
consecutive year. 

Among some of the shining 
stars of this year's team were 
attackmen Jeff Spooner, 
Kevin Patterson, and Mickey 
Menna, midfielder Steve 
Pappas, defensemen Ken 
Michaud and Wayne Ament 
and goalie Don Goldstein. 

While the Gorillas were 
knocking off their foes, the 
Gazelles did likewise with 
their opponents as they had 
a fine 8-2-1 season under 
Coach Frank Garahan. 

After tying Northeastern in 
the first game of the season, 
the Gazelles won their next 
five in a row, including a big 
win over Bridgewater State, 
one of the top women's 
lacrosse teams in the 
northeast. 

The Gazelles displayed an 
awesome, fast-breaking 
offense led by Julie Hall and 
Nancy O'Neil, the Gazelles 
two top scorers.

268/a sporting eye view 




. . . the spring season/269 








for tracksters. 



Year in and year out, the 
UMass men's outdoor track 
team has developed a reputa- 
tion as one of the top teams in 
New England and the year 
1977 was certainly no different 
for the Minutemen as they 
compiled another successful 4- 
1 season mark. 

But not to be overshadowed 
by the success of the men, the 
UMass women's outdoor track 
team, in only its second full 



season as a varsity team went 
undefeated in 1977 with an im- 
pressive 4-0 season record. 

The Minutemen, after an ear- 
ly season loss to Northeastern, 
defeated Brandeis, Holy Cross, 
BU and Rhode Island in succes- 
sion. Then the Minutemen 
placed second at the BC Re- 
lays, second in the Yankee 
Conference Championship and 
fifth in the New Englands. 

Meanwhile, the Minutewo-

men easily defeated Central 
Connecticut, Vermont and 
Rhode Island during tine regular 
season and placed first in ttie 
Albany Invitational and fourth 
in the Eastern's 

But for some reason, the 
winning records of outdoor 
tracl< teams have little signifi- 
gance in relation to the individ- 
ual performances of the team 
members. 

After all, since outdoor track 



is more of an individual rather 
than team sport, it is the per- 
formances of the individuals 
themselves which count the 
most. 

Needless to say, both the 
UMass men's and women's 
outdoor track teams received 
their share of outstanding indi- 
vidual performances which led 
both teams to such fine sea- 
sons. The men received strong 
performances from sopho- 



more Mike Quinn and senior 
John McGrail in the distance 
events, Ron Melkonian in the 
weight events and Toney Pend- 
leton in the jumping events. 

Joe Martens was another 
key member for the Minute- 
men with his consistently fine 
performances in the sprinting 
events. 

The women, who as a team 
destroyed several of last year's 
records, were led by Nancy Co- 



minoli, Cathy Contini, Cindy 
Martin and Diane Sealy. 

Also there were other out- 
standing performancesby Chris 
Perron, Julie Lafreniere, Nancy 
O'Neil and Anne Bradshaw. 

The year 1977 will go down 
in the record books as another 
fine year for the track teams. 
But what the record books 
won't show is that it took a lot 
of fine individual performances 
to achieve it.

seasons, the UMass baseball 
team failed to qualify for the 
NCAA playoffs. The Minute- 
men, who compiled a 20-17 
season record, were edged out 
by Boston College, a team 
which beat the Minutemen, 4-3 
earlier in the season. 

That loss was one of 10 Min- 
utemen setbacks that were de- 
cided by one run. Coach Dick 
Bergquist, however, thought 
that the committee should 
have taken that fact into con- 
sideration, along with the fact 
that UMass probably played 
the toughest schedule in New 
England. 

"I think that it is an injus- 
tice," he said. "I don't think 
the committee made the right 
choice because BC doesn't 
play as strong a schedule as 
ours." 
The Minutemen proved they 



could play with any team by 
posting victories against 
UConn and Maine, the two top 
teams in New England. UMass 
also beat the number one team 
in the country, the University 
of Miami and the number five 
team in the country. Southern 
Illinois University. 

The Minutemen won three 
and dropped six games during 
their southern trip before re- 
turning home and capturing 
the Corsair Tournament at 
Southeastern Massachusetts 
University. 

But after that, it was a long 
struggle as the one-run losses 
began to haunt the Minute- 
men. Teams like Springfield, 
American International Col- 
lege, UNH and Maine were 
among the villains who man- 
aged to just squeak by them. 

"I can't fault a team that 
loses that many close games," 



Bergquist said. "I just wish we 
could have had a few of them 
over again. That was our down- 
fall; if we had won a few of 
those games, we could have 
made the playoffs. But I'm still 
proud of the team for playing 
the way it did." 

With the pressure of every 
game being a must win at the 
end of the season, the Minute- 
men went on to play their best 
baseball, winning 10 out of 
their last 16 games. It all came 
down to UMass needing a dou- 
bleheader sweep against Maine 
on the last day of the season in 
order to make the playoffs. 
UMass won the first game, 5-3, 
behind the strong pitching of 
senior Jeff Reardon and got an 
even better performance from 
junior Tom Nigro in the night- 
cap, but a passed ball after a 
one-out strikeout allowed the 
only run of the game to come 



across the plate.

banner season 




In her first full year as coach 
of the UMass softball team, 
Diane Thompson has already 
successfully met her goal 
which she established when 
she first came here, and that 
was to rebuild the credibility of 
the school's softball program. 

It was a stiff challenge for 
Thompson, to say the least, be- 
cause the Minutewomen only 
managed to win four games 
last year. Worse than that, in 
the past three campaigns, the 
UMass softball team only won 
seven games and it seemed 
that the program was falling 
way behind that of other 
schools. 

"If there is one thing that 
turned this program around," 
Thompson said, "it has to be 
the fact that we became a very 
aggressive ballclub."

. . . the spring season/275 



Early in the spring had 
someone told you the UMass 
Softball team was going to be 
one of the top New England 
college Softball teams, you 
probably would have 
snickered and recommended 
that the person see a doctor. 
After all, the history of the 
UMass Softball team is 
nothing to write home about. 
In the previous three seasons, 
the Minutewomen managed 
to win only seven games, four 
of which came in 1975. 
And with this year's team 
being very young and 
inexperienced, nobody figured 
that the UMass softball team 
would have much success 
this season. 
However, while most people 
were expecting the UMass 
Softball team to have another 
forgettable year, first-year 
Coach Diane Thompson 
worked to make things 
change. 
Taking a chapter from the 
Don Zimmer book on 
coaching, the one that says 
that aggressiveness will win 
ballgames, Thompson molded 
one of the top college softball 
powers in the region. 
This year, the 
Minutewomen went 16-2 and 
had two winning streaks, one 
of seven games and one of 
nine games. The only losses 
the Minutewomen suffered 
this year were against 
Bridgewater St. and 
Springfield College. 
During the season, the 
UMass offensive attack 
averaged 10 hits a ballgame 
along with a number of stolen 
bases which kept the 
opposing teams off-balance. 
Teams just didn't know what 
to expect from the 
Minutewomen. 
Sophomore shortstop Sue 
DiRocco led the team in 
batting with a .429 average; 
Gail Mathews, senior pitcher 
and co-captain hit .321 and 
Sue Peters, a freshman left- 
fielder and pitcher hit .389 on 
the year and was 6-0 as a 
starting pitcher. 
Other top hitters in the 
starting lineup were: Pat Oski, 
.310; senior co-captain Heidi 
Dickson, .276 and freshman 
Rhonda McManus, .316.

Concentration . 
On Speculation 



Gambling is illegal in Massachusetts, or so the 
story goes. At the same time though, it's a good 
bet (5 to 1 ) that this illicit activity is actively 
pursued all across campus. 

In fact, the entire process of education is a bit 
of a gamble. What odds would Jimmy the 
Greek give an entering student on finding a job 
upon graduation which pays more than a job 
found without the bachelor's? 

With this in mind, let us examine some of the 
more minor gambling practices conducted at 
the university. 

PINBALL- This is probably the closest thing 
around to organized legal gambling in the east. 
Here at UMass, no one needs to be told, the 
use of pinball machines nears addiction. Quar- 
ters fall, money is lost, games are won- there is a 
feeling of profit. 

There are other examples of gambling at 
UMass. I mean if the above mentioned were 
the only kinds of gambling activities, one could 
say that this place is a haven for losers. So be- 
fore you believe that, consider these: 

FOOTBALL CARDS- This is an example of a 
real life, Mafia backed, illicit but fun game. The 
object is simply to pick four or five teams 
against a point spread and if you are right you 
receive a substantial return upon your invest- 
ment. Of course we would have to add that 
some advice should be given to those who pur- 
sue this pleasure. First, it is illegal and therefore 
morally wrong. Second, the money probably 
supports drugs, soliciting, and underworld ac- 
tivities. And third, never take Minnesota on a 
wide spread. Good bets are, traditionally big 
ten college teams, the Cardinals and Tampa 
Bay. 

JAi LAI- This gambling activity takes place in 
Connecticut and attracts a good UMass crowd 
during the school year. The chances of making 
a few dollars here are pretty good unless you 
bump into campus reporter Jim Paulin who will 
try to borrow it. 

FHORSES and DOGS- No, this has nothing to 
do with characters who hang out in the Blue 
Wall on Friday night. These are races and unless 
you really know what you are doing, or happen 
to be blessed with luck, the chances are good 
that you'll lose your shirt. 

(continued on page 278) 



(continued from page 277) 

THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE LOTTERY- 
Like football cards, the money received 
through this activity supports crooks, drunks 
and moral degenerates. In other words, Massa- 
chusett's politics. Lottery tickets are not very 
popular here according to Candy Counter ex- 
perts. When one of the salespeople was asked 
if the tickets were popular, she replied, "No, 
but we sell a lot of Reese's Peanut Butter 
Cups." 

POOL - To research this one, the author 
strode into Barselotti's dropped $25 onto the 
pool table and said to the patrons (in his tough- 
est Fall River voice), "Okay, which one of you 
flaming fairies wants to play for some real mon- 
ey?" 

It took the doctors three days to remove the 
cue from my larnyx. 

With this in mind and considering the lack of 
profitable gambling activities available here, we 
would like to suggest a few alternative activi- 
ties. 

There are a few other pools which could 
easily be started among small groups of people 
all around campus. For example, I'll give you 
some odds-A Student Union, 5-1 against. Col- 
legian gets taken over by mutant sheep, 2-1 for. 
Nuclear Power plant proposed for UMass, 5-1 
for. Physical Plant will never figure out how to 
turn it on, 100-1 for. You can get picked up in 
the Blue Wall, Male 50-1 for, Female 50-1 for. 
You have gotten this far in this story, 25-1 
against.

The Photographers 



D 



G 



Here is a brief look at what happened behind the 
scenes to create INDEX '77, and the people who 
made it possible. 

We began with a cover design initiated by P.J. Prokop 
and brought to life by Joan Mostacci, who did the 
painting. Then Rick Dec created inspiring front and 
back endsheets and we were off to a good start. 

We found four students, Joe Quinlan, Arlene Macl- 
saac, Debbie Goodwin, and Gary Lubarsky who were 
willing to let us in on their personal thoughts about 
attending UMass, and we had the Diaries. 

Then Patty Doyle attacked the problem of covering 
living areas and edited, designed and produced the 
pages of HOME. 

Not to be outdone, Tom Crowley came up with the 
idea for covering the campus, as well as local and 
national news events in 32 pages of -60-. He was 
asssisted by Rebecca Greenberg, Jim Odato, Lisa Me- 
lilli, and P.J. Prokop in organizing, designing and 
producing the jam-packed pages. 

Jim Gagne assumed the responsibility of covering the 
fine arts, and the result is INDEX ON ART. Jim 
gathered all the material for his section, 'and designed 
and produced the pages with assistance from Mary 
Ellen Lowney, and contributions from Edward Cohen. 

Intrinsic Motivation is the product of the collective 
imagination of Donna Noyes and P.J. Prokop. Donna 
researched the facts for the explanation of academics, 
and designed the pages for UMass' first yearbook 
novel. 

We then had a Multiple Choice concerning activities, 
and that task was handled primarily by P.J. Prokop 
with a little help and inspiration from Pat Carney and 
Jay Milender. 



The Editors & Staff 



We appreciate the fine work of 
the artists who put so much effort 
and care into their work for the 
book: 

Richard Dec 

Carol Moore 
Joan Mostacci 

Mike Moyle 
Kim Possee 
Sheila Selby 

Marcia Sweig 
Diane Tessaglia 



J 

ny 




We still had to cover sports and editor Nick Kotsopoulos 
gave us A Sporting Eye View. Nick and P.J. teamed up to 
edit, design and compile the action-packed pages. 

And while all this was going on, Michael Phillips was 
steadily working on one of the crucial sections of the book - 
Seniors. He had Richard Adamczyk, Lori Kitchener, 
Mary-Jean Luppi, Carol Moore, Joan Mostacci, Donna 
Noyes, Ronald Pearson, Eric Stocki, and Jeffrey Sypole 
taking appointments for senior portraits. When sittings 
were completed, he created a 55 page senior section for us 
to remember our friends by for years to come. 

Just when we thought things were all settled, Patty Doyle 
came up with an idea for a section which could only be 
called Imbroglio. Patty, working with Beth Ehrenreich and 
Cathy Call collected trivia on the university, created a 
crossword puzzle, haunted the library and ladies rooms for 
graffiti . . . and came up with some interesting facets of 
UMass life. 

Speaking of interesting - Diane Tessaglia did all the illus- 
trations for our Cover Story on astrology, while Joan Mos- 
tacci did the illustrations for the Chapter Two Cover Story. 

Special thanks are in order for Malerie Yolen and Neil 
Coogan, who were of invaluable assistance to all of us. 

We also wish to thank Gerry Grenier in the Graphics De- 
partment for his assistance.

Ah yes, the epilogue. 

I've been waiting for the day (some 285 pages, at least one million phone calls, and eleven months ago) when I could 
actually sit down and Write this. This page was reserved for me to Write one of those absurd editor's notes which for some 
reason yearbool^ editors feel they have coming to them. And I'm no exception. Such is the plight of a yearbook editor. 

We hope you enjoyed this book- We've done a ridiculous amount of Work, logged an incomprehensible number of hours, 
and have worn out at least 50 thinking caps while producing this volume. And that's an understatement. I like to term this 
INDEX a "classical-modern" yearbook. I feel it is a solid combination of traditional and modem styles. From the humble 
beginnings of 288 blank pages , we've tried to create a book lohich will aesthetically appeal to its audience while keeping 
the basics. I feel We have reached a viable compromise. I also feel there will be those who disagree. Regrettably, we 
have neither the space nor the personnel to cover every aspect of a university of this size, making it impossible to please 
everyone. Such is the plight of a yearbook editor. 

As in any undertaking of this size, there Were days when it all seemed hopeless, when the end Wasn't in sight. We Worked 
more, harder — and the end still wasn't in sight. Andthen, it Was finished. I must've been on cloud nine for a week, ^^d 
with the elation came the sadness. The sadness of leaving a place with people I've loved for so long. And completing work 
on something which had become so much a part of me it had been my life for a year. I even used to dream in direct-line 
shots, reverses, black o^nd white, and second-color. I guess now Vll go back lo dreaming in four-color like everyone else. 
Such is the plight of a yearbook editor. 

And now for the difficult part. How does one properly thank people for something which is priceless? To the editors and 
staff, I can only say you have been "the best and the brightest." You all could have become independently wealthy had you 
been paid for the time and effort you've expended here. My sincere thanks and appreciation. 

To Don Lendry, our friend and representative, my deepest thanks. There aren't Words to sum up the b-emendous job you 
have done for us. To Dario Pohtella, confidante and advisor, sincere gratitude for your indomitable spirit and eternal 
optimism about the book uohen the going was rough. 

To John Neister, Pat Carney, Bill Childs, Paul Yanowitch, David Letters , and Jay Milender, I extend my heartfelt thanks 
and appreciation for your special efforts and kindnesses throughout the year. 

And a great big hug and thank-you to my parents, for your unfailing consideration and understanding, ajbout everything. 

Take good care of this book- It will be a friend for years to come. And so, farewell to a memory.

''Hope" is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul 
And sings the tune without the words 
And never stops — at all— 



And sweetest— in the Gale — is heard 
And sore must be the storm — 
That could abash the little Bird— 
That l^ept so many warm — 




Tve heard it in the chillest land— 
And on the strangest Sea — 
Yet, never, in Extemity, 
It asked a crumb — of Me.
