The following 
news articles are 
accounts of major 
events that 
happened this year 
here on campus 
and throughout the 
world. Some of 
these events 
affected you

indirectly. The

presented in a

S.G.A. Elections 

In late February of 1978 all students 
wishing to become a candidate for 
S.G.A. co-president or trustee had to 
submit nomination signatures to the 
Student Senate. An unprecedented 
number of people fulfilled the re- 
quired mandate of gathering 250 
names in order to have their names put 
on the ballot. 

Problems arose when a new govern- 

mental affairs committee was faced 
with operating a presidential election 
with obsolete guidelines and vague in- 
terpretations of these guidelines from 
various friends involved in the process 
(e.g. the Student Attorney General). 
There were no provisions within the 
Student Government Constitution for 
run-off elections, yet more than ten 
candidates were vigorously pursuing 
the positions. This meant that if no can- 
didacy was able to receive a majority 

(33.3%) of all the votes cast, some other 
method would have to be initiated to 
elect the President. This vehicle hap- 
pened to be an electoral college, a sys- 
tem scraped some years ago due to its 
lack of true democratic characteristics. 
Another quirk in the 78 elections 
was the "none of the above" option 
that was allowed on the ballot in the 
popular election but not in the elector- 
al convention. 





In conjuction with 

the push for "The 

Year of the Union", 

the Distinguished 

Visitors Program 

brought Tom 

Hayden (left) and 

Dick Gregory (right) 

to speak at the 



Conference. Both 

these speakers 

urged students to 

take a more active 

role in their 




It was supposed to be the year when 
students at UMass would finally chal- 
lenge the administration and win the 
right to collectively bargain the terms 
of our education and living conditions. 

The Undergraduate Student Senate 
declared it "The Year of the Union", 
attempting in September to spark a 
campus-wide movement by sponsoring 
a well-attended two-day conference to 
introduce students to the concept of a 
union and sign up recruits in the fight 
for student rights. 

Dick Gregory, one of the keynote 
speakers, expressed the sentiment of 
the audience when he told a cheering 
crowd "you got to let those educators 
know they exist to satisfy your needs, 
not the other way around." 

Then, in the following months, the 
spark seemed to die as the publicity 
and coverage waned, the Student Sen- 
ate fought internal battles, the student 
advocacy agencies failed to coordinate 
their efforts, and the recruits failed to 
show up in large numbers to launch a 

full scale attack. Many observors would 
agree with one student senator who 
lamented, "the Union has fizzled." 

What these observers failed to see, 
however, was that the push for a stu- 
dent union did not begin nor end in 
the fall of 1977. Expecting an explosion 
that would immediately find students 
in control of their university, they 
failed to detect the small steady flame 
of activity that continued to burn. A 
group of one hundred or so students 
continued to research, petition, can- 
vass, and participate in endless meet- 
ings, knowing — or at least hoping — 
that progress was being made. 

This progress included the publish- 
ing of the Course and Teacher Evalua- 
tion Guide, and winning concessions 
from academic departments such as the 
Economics Department, which was 
pressured into funding a student-run 
tutoring program. 

But the biggest victory was the right 
to a negotiated lease for students living 
in University housing. In this case, 
those who had been formulating and 
promoting a lease for months finally 

got the popular support necessary to 
effectively challenge authority. 

The support came when Southwest 
Residential Master-Director Jim Mat- 
lack made the mistake of mastermind- 
ing a plan to limit residence in Pierpont 
dormitory to freshpeople and sopho- 
mores, presumably to curb drug traf- 
ficking there. 

This, coupled with the release of an 
audit proving that the dorms didn't 
meet health and safety code standards, 
resulted in the over-night occupation 
of Chancellor Bromery's office in Whit- 
more by 150 students, in the course of 
its forced scuttling of the Matlack plan, 
the administration also agreed to reim- 
burse students living in substandard 
housing and to negotiate a lease. 

Negotiating is, of course, what un- 
ions do, so, looking back, the more as- 
tute observers will realize that while 
"The Year of the Union" may not have 
been a big bang, it certainly wasn't a 
dud. Just ask the Chancellor. 

— Jim Gagne 


The Gordon/Tyson ticket fell short 
of the necessary majority, hence an 
electoral convention became a reality. 
Another controversy arose when the 
second place vote receiver, "none of 
the above", was not allowed a place in 
the electoral convention. Inconsisten- 
cies were prevalent, and an ad hoc 
committee was formed to iron out as 
many difficulties as possible. 

The electoral convention consisted 
of factions from each of the six area 

governments with a total of fifty votes, 
and the Student Senate with a total of 
fifty votes. In order to win the election 
in the convention, a candidate re- 
quired fifty-one votes (a majority). The 
convention eventually went to seven 
ballots over a period of six weeks, often 
without a quorum. Eventually the de- 
clared winners were Bob Dion and Don 
Bishop on the seventh ballot. Bob Dion 
was an election offical who participated 
in developing and officiating election 

rules, then resigned to run for presi- 
dent/trustee with Don Bishop, who 
had come in fourth in the popular elec- 

The election is still in contention, 
with the Student Senate abolishing the 
electoral college and voting for the res- 
ignation of Dion and Bishop in the fall 
of 1978. But until that time, Dion and 
Bishop will act as S.G.A. co-presidents.

, ' "TheC.A. f. E. staff"^ 

Last fall the Academic Affairs Com- 
mittee of the Student Senate published 
"On the Other Hand", A Course and 
Teacher Evaluation Guide. The guide 
was put together from information 
provided by willing teachers, data from 
a teacher assessment questionnaire 
published in the Collegian, information 
derived from computer forms passed 
out at the end of each semester and, in 
several cases, the opinions of one stu- 

Many students felt that the guide was 
well prepared and found it very useful. 
Others felt that the idea was basically a 
good one, but the guide itself could 
stand improvement. 

Teachers were quite varied in their 
opinions of the publication. Some felt it 
was well done and welcomed student 
evaluations, while others felt it was 
"poorly researched and created an 
"adversary relationship" between 
teachers and students. The teachers 
who were displeased with the guide 
pointed out that some evaluations were 

made by one student, and resented the 
publication of their salary and tenure 

Several students felt that they have 
been evaluated by one teacher since 
time eternal, and that it was about time 
students got their chance. One student 
said, "The guide tells it like it is. Teach- 
ers should be able to take some criti- 
cism. They certainly dish out their 

Former Provost Paul Puryear criti- 
cized the booklet in the Springfield 
Union. Puryear said he felt the booklet 
was "incomplete" and contained 
"some unevenness in the format." 

Several teachers felt that the guide 
was used by students as a means to "get 
back at" teachers for past differences. 
These teachers felt that they could rec- 
ognize the personal style of the authors 
of some of the evaluations, and that 
these authors used the guide as a 
means of revenge. 

Also, many complaints were made 
about the graphics used in the guide. 
Some went so far as to say that the 
drawings were crude, racist, deroga- 

tory, and disgusting. Student Govern- 
ment Association co-President jon Hite 
apologized publicly in the Collegian 
to anyone who was offended by the 
graphics. Joseph Connolly, the student 
in charge of the guide, apologized also 
and explained that the drawings were 
intended to satirize stereotypes, and 
not intended as stereotypes them- 

So it has been established by stu- 
dents, faculty, and administrators alike 
that the first issue of "On the Other 
Hand" has many shortcomings, the 
most obvious of which is its incom- 
pleteness. Can the student publishers 
be blamed for this? 

The Student Senate sued the school 
for access to teacher evaluations under 
the Massachusetts freedom of informa- 
tion law. The information was not re- 
leased. Without the raw data it seemed 
impossible for anyone to put together a 
truly complete guide, but the students 
felt the idea was sound so they did the 
best they could with the information 
they had. Certainly they should not be 
criticized for incompleteness by the 
very administrators who withheld the 
information in the first place. 

As we have seen, the opinions on the 
guide are as varied as the students, fac- 
ulty, and administration themselves. 
One idea that seemed to hold up is that 
a course and teacher evaluation guide, 
written and published by the students 
and for the students is a good idea. It 
reflects a progressive student attitude 
toward student-teacher relationships. 
The fact that many people were dis- 
pleased with the various aspects of the 
first issue of "On the Other Hand" be- 
comes almost irrelevant when viewed 
with respect to the potential of the

The summer news of 
1977 flashed back to 1970 
as Kent State University 
once again became a head- 
line grabber. Tent City at 
Kent State captured the 
imagination and energy of 
thousands, and UMass was 
no exception. The Revolu- 
tionary Student Brigade be- 
gan the fall semester with a 
campaign to popularize the 
struggle there. More than 
125 UMass students took 
part in three demonstra- 
tions at that university, sac- 
rificing weekends and par- 
ties to spend twenty-four 
grueling hours of traveling 
to take a stand at Kent 

Many of the students 
were only in elementary 
school when the four stu- 
dents were killed by National Guards- 
men at an anti-war rally at Kent in 1970. 
Yet over 1700 students at UMass wore 
armbands as part of the National Arm- 
band Day called by the Revolutionary 
Brigade in support of the struggle at 
Kent State to put an end to injustice. 




They joined the thousands across the 
country who opposed the construction 
of a gymnasium on the site were the 
students had been killed seven years 

UMass students joined the thousands 
who proclaimed to the "powers to be" 

that Kent State has not 
been forgotten ... or for- 
given. The spirit of Kent 
State lives on. It is the 
spirit of rebellion, the 
spirit of strength and uni- 
ty and the spirit of deter- 
mination to stand op- 
posed to the injustice of 

Over 2,000 students 
signed petitions which 
demonstrated enough 
support for the Student 
Senate to allocate almost 
$4,000 for traveling ex- 
penses to the site. 

In 1970 National 
" Guardsmen used brute 
force with the consent 
and encouragement of 
then Governor Rhodes of 
-^ Ohio to suppress the peo- 
ple's demands for an end 
to the war in Indochina. In 1977, police 
used the same methods again to try to 
squash the spirit of struggle, that spirit 
of unity at Kent State and campuses 
across the country, which will one day 
provide the strength to insure that 
Kent State will never happen again.

Student Senate Speaker Brian DeLima was made a scapegoat 
when he was found guilty by the Student Judiciary on two charges 
from his abuse of the senate phones to make seventy-three long- 
distance phone calls worth $313 to his home state Hawaii. 

The charges were: misrepresenting the senate "without prior 
consent of that group," and fradulently obtaining telephone ser- 
vice through "unauthorized charging to the account of another." 

On the witness stand DeLima was asked if he had "prior con- 
sent" for use of the phones for personal calls. 

"At no time was the use of phones frowned upon," DeLima 
stated. "In fact it was sanctioned." Delima arranged to pay for the 
calls from his intersession salary as Senate Speaker.

Protests were prevalent on campus this 
past spring. On the left students are 
shown prior to their April 8th occupation 
of Chancellor Bromery's office in Whit- 
more. In ail seventy-five students were in- 
volved with the seventeen hour takeover 
in protest of University housing policies. 

One of the other major groups of pro- 
testers was the faculty, shown here before 
their May 3rd picket of Whitmore. The 
faculty was protesting that they had not 
yet received the two and a half percent 
pay increase granted by the state to all 
state employees. The faculty protests did 
not end with the march on campus, how- 
ever, but continued into the month of 
June, when they did not release student's 
grades till the administration met their 


Lance Didn't Balance 

when President Jimmy Carter chose 
his close friend Bert Lance to act as the 
Director of the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) in Washington last 
January, most Americans believed that 
they had just another "good ole boy" 
to add to their list of officials with 
southern accents in the Capital. Well, as 
it turned out, this "ole boy" wasn't so 
good and innocent after all. Reports by 

the news media and official investiga- 
tions suggested possible wrong-doings 

in Lance's freewheeling financial affairs. 
The controversy was sparked by the 
May 23rd issue of Time Magazine con- 
taining the first public accounting of 
Lance's debts. More reports followed 
in the Washington Post, The New York 
Times, and Newsweek Magazine. The 
media claimed that Lance was abusing 
his position as part owner of the Na- 
tional Bank of Georgia (NBC). They ac- 

cused him of unethical conduct in ob- 
taining personal loans in his financial 
interests. These discoveries lead to offi- 
cial inquiries by the Senate Govern- 
mental Affairs Committee headed by 
Senator Abraham Ribicoff on July 15. 
The committee concluded that it was 
satisfied with Lance's testimony, saying 
that "he had done nothing improper". 
A report by the Comptroller of the 
Currency and Lance's close friend, 
John G. Hieman, also endorsed Lance,

An Act Of Perfidy 

On the basis of a near unanimous 
recommendation of a faculty search 
committee, I was offered the position 
of Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs 
and Provost in late August of 1976. Al- 
though a group of dissident faculty 
sought to overturn this recommenda- 
tion the University Board of Trustees 
approved my appointment, and I as- 
sumed my duties on October 15, 1976. 
Fourteen months later, on January 10, 
1978, the Chancellor, for political rea- 
sons, asked for my resignation. The fol- 
lowing day, when, as a matter of princi- 
ple, I refused to step aside voluntarily, I 
was summarily dismissed. This ended 
the shortest tenure of any academic of- 
ficer on this or any other campus. For 

whatever lessons it holds for the future, 
it may be useful to examine, in sum- 
mary form, the web of factors that led 
to my demise. 

I came to the Provost's Office at a 
time when the University was adrift. 
Because the political elements in the 
faculty were in constant internecene 
warfare with the President's Office over 
jurisdictional matters, little sustained 
attention had been given to the task of 
modernizing the University at a time 
when societal changes were beginning 
to have a profound influence on the 
future of higher education throughout 
the nation. Few faculty understood that 
the phenomenal growth in enrollment 
and University budgets during the 
1960s and early 1970s had come to an 
end, and would not return again during 
the remainder of this century. More- 
over, despite studies by the Carnegie 
Commission and others, few faculty 
were prepared to face the reality that 
permanent secular shifts in the eco- 
nomic system, from a predominately 
goods producing to a service economy, 
presented a challenge to the University 
to meet the emerging societal demand 
for more specialized career education, 
particularly at the undergraduate and 
the Masters levels. While vociferously 
denying that these charges were inevi- 
table, some faculty failed to recognize 
the need to revitalize a moribund liber- 
al arts which, through lack of clarity and 
definition, had not only given up its 
traditional claims at the center of the 
educational process, but was increas- 
ingly at odds with changing academic 
values. The faculty also remained blind 

to the imaginative ways in which cur- 
ricular and degree requirements at all 
levels could be tailored to appeal to the 
students broad intellectual interests as 
well as to their quest for specialized 
career education. Knowledge for its 
own sake may be an admirable goal, but 
it is one which few individuals practice 
exclusively, including those faculty 
who urged such views on their stu- 

I accepted the Provost's position 
with the clear understanding that my 
primary tasks would be to improve aca- 
demic organization and management 
(in a University notorious for poor 
management), and to provide the ad- 
ministrative leadership necessary to 
modernize the University and equip it 
to meet the new societal conditions 
which would affect its operation for the 
remainder of this century. The first step 
was to begin a process of long-range 
planning which would guide the alloca- 
tion of fiscal resources in the future, 
determine the relative importance of 
academic programs and, in general, 
provide for the maintenance and en- 
hancement of scholarly excellence de- 
spite diminished budgets. My initial 
analysis of the academic budget led me 
to the inescapable conclusion that the 
budget was not rationally distributed 
among academic programs, that there 
were no clear empirical guidelines for 
the allocation of academic resources, 
and that there was considerable mis- 
mangement of budgets at the School 
and Department levels. All this was 
compounded by data management and 
accounting systems appallingly inad- 


even though he had followed "unsafe 
and unsound financial practices". 

This judgment referred to Lance's ac- 
tivities as President of the Calhoun First 
National Bank (CFNB) from 1972 to 
1975 and his other activities up until 
the time of his nomination for the 

Meanwhile, President Carter was so 
convinced that the American Public 
would accept Lance's credibility, that 
he interrupted a vacation at Camp Da- 

vid to fly to Washington to praise Lance 
at a televised news conference: "Bert, 
I'm proud of you." 

Unfortunately, Carter's standard of 
ethics for choosing government offi- 
cials was tainted because new issues 
surfaced; issues he wouldn't want to 

For example, during the time that 
Lance was President of the Calhoun 
First National Bank, officers and their 
families were allowed to overdraw 

checking accounts in substantial 
amounts for considerable periods of 
time. Lance defended himself with the 
claim that overdrafts were common 
among country banks. The Senate 
Committee and the press did not think 
so and kept digging, even though 
White House Press Secretary Jody 
Powell kept issuing statements in de- 
fense of Lance. 

The evidence against Lance mount- 
ed. The day before he was appointed

equate for a large University. 

The maldistribution of the budget, 
and the lack of allocative standards, 
meant that some departments had 
more funds and faculty than they could 
justify while others had inadequate re- 
sources and faculty to meet the student 
demand for their courses. Student in- 
terests had been shamelessly ignored. 

While faulty allocative decisions in- 
ured largely to the disadvantage of the 
professional schools. Arts and Sciences 
departments were also affected. 
It was my attempt to bring more preci- 
sion to the allocative process that 
brought me afoul of a small, but politi- 
cally active, group of faculty in Arts and 
Sciences who opposed budget reallo- 
cation and long-range planning even if 
prospective students in other depart- 
ments were denied access to programs 
for which they were qualified. This 
group of approximately 250 faculty, out 
of a total faculty of 1300, in a mob-like 
meeting in April of 1977, voted no con- 
fidence in my administration and sub- 
sequently asked that I be dismissed. 
While few of the faculty had read the 
reallocative decisions embodied in my 
long-range plans, they apparently ob- 
jected on the grounds that the pro- 
posed reallocation of approximately 
forty positions (out of 1300) would 
somehow "destroy" the Arts and Sci- 
ences at the University. There were 
also some who objected to the plan 
because the faculty had not been for- 
mally consulted before the plan was 
implemented. Despite the fact that 
then President Robert Wood attended 
the meeting to explain that he had or- 

dered the preparation and immediate 
implementation of the Plan, some fac- 
ulty felt that I should have ignored his 
directive. They were also quite willing 
to overlook the fact that each depart- 
ment had submitted to me a proposed 
long-range plan for their units which I 
used in developing the campus long- 
range plan. 

The call for my dismissal by a minor- 
ity of the Arts and Sciences faculty was 
quickly taken up by the Secretary of 
the Faculty Senate and his cohorts. A 
meeting of the full faculty was called by 
the Rules Committee of the Senate to 
consider another resolution of censure 
which took exception to my long- 
range plan and falsely accused me of 
violating governace procedures. This 
resolution was passed by essentially the 
same minority that voted in the earlier 
Arts and Sciences meeting. What was of 
considerable significance, however, 
was that this group of faculty had now 
come to accept the notion that my 
reallocation of resources to meet 
changing student needs was necessary, 
and they passed a companion resolu- 
tion to that effect. The only difference 
was that they thought the Faculty Sen- 
ate should devise the long-range plan 
rather than the Provost. They com- 
pletely ignored the fact that, by prior 
Trustee decision, long-range planning 
was the primary responsibility of the 

Despite all these efforts by a minority 
of the faculty to remove me, the Board 
of Trustees refused, at its June 1977 
meeting, to accede to their wishes. 
However, it was decided to hold the 

planning process in abeyance until 
planning assumptions for all three cam- 
puses had been developed by the 
President's Office, and approved by 
the Board. These assumptions would 
form the basis for further review of 
campus plans with full participation by 
students, faculty, and administration. 
Several Board members chastised the 
faculty for its long standing opposition 
to the planning process, and the Board 
generally made it clear that the process 
would go foward. One Board member 
also indicated that he had received re- 
ports from other faculty that the attacks 
on me were racially motivated. This is 
an issue I will return to later. 

Despite the fact that I had received 
virtually no support from the campus 
Chancellor during my spring travail, I 
felt the Board of Trustees had given its 
sanction to the long-range planning 
process, and that this was a basis for 
continuing my efforts to modernize 
the academic sector of the University. 
Subsequent events were to prove me 
wrong. A few weeks after the June 
Board meeting. President Robert 
Wood resigned, thus altering the politi- 
cal conditions under which I operated. 
The primary obstacle to the continu- 
ation of my efforts was the Chancellor's 
gradually unfolding decision to be a 
candidate to succeed Robert Wood as 
President. Over several months, it be- 
came clear that I would not have the 
Chancellor's support if such support 
interfered at all with his presidential 
ambitions. Consequently, my position 
in the administration continued to de- 
teriorate throughout the fall. The aca- 


OMB Director, a criminal case against 
Lance was dropped by the Attorney 
General's Office in Atlanta. Lance had 
failed to file reports with his outside 
business interests and personal bor- 
rowing, as required by statute or regu- 
lation. A total of fifty bank loans were 
not reported. 

The constant harassment by the me- 
dia and the never-ending questions 
hurled at Lance by government agen- 

cies were enough to permanantly harm 
his credibility as OMB Director. The 
American people were becoming 
skeptical: perhaps the President was 
betraying them by trying to protect a 
man who was not fit to stand up to the 
ethical standards that he had set up 
during his campaign speeches. 

Carter announced Lance's resigna- 
tion on September 21st, after three 
days of defense testimony by Lance be- 

fore the Government Affairs Commit- 
tee. Carter accepted the resignation 
with the "greatest sense of regret and 
sorrow". He replaced Lance with James 
T. Mclntyre, also from Georgia. Per- 
haps the President had learned to dis- 
tinquish between comradery and

demic Deans, sensing my lack of sup- 
port from the Chancellor, as well as my 
dissatifaction with their overall perfor- 
mance, began to insist that the exercise 
of the Provost's perogatives were de- 
pendent on their approval. At no time 
did the Chancellor make it clear to the 
Deans that I was their superior, not vice 
versa. Instead, he urged that 1 reach 
some kind of accommodation with 
them despite evidences of gross in- 
competence. I was, for instance, to ig- 
nore budget overruns and the misuse 
of personnel funds, and permit the 
Deans responsibilities which my prede- 
cessors had always exercised indepe- 
dently. After all, the Chancellor could 
hardly appeal to the Deans to support 
his presidential candidacy and, at the 
same time, permit me to impose ac- 
ceptable standards of performance. 

Matters came to a head in late No- 
vember when I announced, after a 
year of study and consulation with ap- 
propriate graduate faculty and the 
Deans, for the reorganization of the 
Graduate School, which was strikingly 
similar to one promulgated and ap- 
proved several years earlier by my pre- 
decessor. While I had been directed to 
put the plan into effect by the Chancel- 
lor several months earlier, he agreed to 
a Faculty Senate resolution to delay im- 
plementation even though the Senate, 
in a long debate, was unable to cite any 
substantive objection to my proposal. 
Presumably, it was unworthy because I 
was its author. 

Following the November meeting of 
the Senate, it was clear that my useful- 
ness as Provost was at an end. In the 

succeeding weeks, I began to reorder 
my life and prepare for the inevitable 
resignation. On Christmas Day, the 
Chancellor came to my home bearing 
gifts and promising, in a disgraceful act 
duplicity, that I had his strong support 
and this support would be demonstrat- 
ed in tangible ways after the holidays. A 
few weeks later I was told by a faculty 
friend that at almost the very moment 
he was pledging his support, he was 
conspiring with the Deans to oust me. 

Early in January, the Deans requested 
that I resign immediately because I 
would not permit them to dictate 
budget decisions or approve staff ap- 
pointments in my office. 1, in turn, 
asked several Deans to resign on the 
grounds of poor performance. As my 
subordinates, the Deans had no legal 
authority to request my resignation. As 
Provost and acting Chancellor (Dr. Bro- 
mery was out of town), even they clear- 
ly understood that I had the authority 
to request theirs. 

Upon his return to campus, and 
without examining my lengthy written 
case for the removal of the Deans, he 
dismissed me for my "percepitous" ac- 
tion against the Deans. However, in my 
final conference with him, he com- 
mented: "Some people say I've sup- 
ported you too long and it's affecting 
my presidential chances. So you can 
understand why I can't work with you 
any longer." For a man who had never 
supported the policies he brought me 
to the University to implement, this 
was the final act of perfidy. I was clearly 
the victim of the Chancellor's misguid- 
ed ambition; an ambition which, as later 

events revealed, he was never destined 
to fulfill. 

It is significant that throughout the 
turmoil that surrounded my incumben- 
cy, no successful attacks were made 
upon the soundness of my policies. 
Even the Faculty Senate charges of pro-' 
cedural transgressions fell on barren 
ground. It is clear that the principle ob- 
jection to me was not simply my race, 
but my unwillingness to embrace the 
stereotypes of servility and deference 
which are still ascribed to my race and 
which, unfortunately, were the hall- 
marks of the Chancellor's dealings with 
the faculty over many years. Some rac- 
ist faculty were quite open in their 
views, referring to me as the "Choco- 
late Mafia" and "nigger". Others were 
less overt, expressing their more sophi- 
sticated racism by seeking to deny me 
prerogatives freely and openly exer- 
cised by my white predecessors. Either 
way, it is clear that a vocal minority was 
unwilling to accept the academic lead- 
ership of a black Provost who would 
not blindly follow their self-interested 
view of the University. The shame of it 
all is that they persuaded a black Chan- 
cellor to become a willing partner in 
their perfidious designs.

Two major fires occurred on campus this 
past year. One was in Mary Lyon dormitory 
in Northeast, and the other in Field dormi- 
tory in Orchard Hill. Firefighters battled 
the blazes which left moderate fire and 
smoke damage in the rooms and through- 
out the hallways. Fortunately no one was 
hurt, and these fires prompted the Univer- 
sity to study the hazards of fires on campus. 

Improvements: Alas^sEigooo 

Fires in dormitories and on 
campuses in general were an 
issue in 1978, spawned by 
major blazes in dormitories 
at Providence College, Syra- 
cuse, and Hampshire Col- 

The Providence fire killed 
ten women, and four fire- 
fighters died in the Syracuse 

Hampshire College suf- 
fered a fire that destroyed 
approximately one-fourth of 
a dormitory there, but re- 
corded no injuries. Here at 
the University there were 
several one-room fires, with 
no injuries, and a moderate 
property loss. 

The Division of Environmental 
Health and Safety concluded an eigh- 
teen month study of dormitory fire 
safety, and projected recommenda- 
tions that the University should adopt 
to make the structures more fire-safe 
than they presently are. 
• This study included an overview of 
many New England college dormitory 
complexes, and the securing of services 
of a number of renowned fire protec- 
tion engineers for consulting purposes. 

Of the recommendations, which in- 
cluded new fire alarm system installa- 
tions, smoke control and stairway pres- 
surization, corridor and room material 
combustibility limits, and smoke and 
sprinkler system additions, one item 
was instituted immediately. 

The first recommendation to install 
smoke detectors in all student sleeping 
areas was acted upon, and 7,000 photo- 

electric smoke detectors were pur- 
chased and installed in the rooms dur- 
ing intersession. The devices were 
plugged into the electric outlets in 
each room, and will be permanently 
wired to the building electric system 
during the summer. 

The smoke detector can sense a fire 
in it's incipient stages and warn occu- 
pants of the room minutes before 
smoke and heat conditions can make 
the room untenable for human habita- 

The other recommendations sighted 
by the study are being scrutinized for 
cost implications and will be budgeted 
on a long range basis. Already for fiscal 
year 1979, half a million dollars has 
been set aside for fire safety improve- 
ments in the dormitories. 

The University also promoted fire 
safety by the distribution of literature 

to all students in the form of 
a pamphlet, and also in- 
stalled, on the door of each 
room, instructions for safely 
evacuating from a fire situa- 
tion, or to handle being 
trapped in a fire. 

Students were often re- 
minded of fire safety, if not 
by articles in the Collegian, 
on the various posters on 
campus, then by participat- 
ing in the fire drills that have 
become common occur- 
ences on campus. 

Sometimes, the fire alarm 
horns would sound for nei- 
ther a drill or a fire, but be- 
cause some prankster or 
some alcohol-influenced 
person decided to turn in a 
"false alarm." More often 
than not, these irresponsible people 
would not be apprehended. But when 
they were, arraignment in District 
Court followed, with severe penalties. 
A fine of seven hundred dollars and 
probation for one year was not an un- 
common sentence, which helped tre- 
mendously in reducing false alarms by 
40% this year. 

The University is hopeful that in the 
overall learning process each student is 
exposed to while attending UMass, he 
or she has also digested information on 
fire safety and preparedness that can 
benefit them in years to come, another 
one of the extras that made their col- 
lege education a worthwhile exper-

The Graduate Research Center here 
at the University was reopened by 
Dean Seymour Shapiro of Natural Sci- 
ences and Mathematics after extensive 
environmental testing revealed no evi- 
dence of chemical contamination of 
the center. 

Shapiro had ordered all three seven- 
teen-story graduate research towers 
closed following initial medical tests 
that showed that twenty-one of twen- 
ty-four researchers tested who worked 
in the center had high levels of the 
organic solvent toluene in their blood. 
The tests were initiated after some of 
the researchers complained of fatigue, 
headaches, and abnormal menstrual cy- 

Subsequent tests by a state laboratory 
of the same blood and urine samples 
did not confirm the findings of the first 
tests, and tests analyzed by two other 
laboratories of blood and urine samples 
taken three days after the center was 
closed showed no evidence of abnor- 
mal toluene levels. Nevertheless, the 
center remained closed while the Uni- 
versity Department of Environmental 
Health and Safety and the State Divi- 
sion of Occupational Hygiene ran ex- 
tensive tests on water, air, ventilation 
and drainage systems in the center.

While New England's worst snow- 
storm hit this past February, students 
battled still another problem. "The 
Russian Flu", or the "the bug", was the 
epidemic which afflicted about 4,000 
students. As the flu made it's way 
through campus, the infirmary became 
crowded with students who sought re- 
lief from aching muscles, chills, fever, 
and vomiting. 

The University Health Center sug- 
gested this diet: take two asprin, get 
plenty of rest, and drink plenty of liq- 
uids (including flat soda and bouillon).

Blizzard 78 

The "storm of the century", as it has 
been affectionately named, is over. 
However, on subways, at bus stops, 
during town meetings, anywhere peo- 
ple gather, they will undoubtedly share 
stories on the devastation of the Great 
Blizzard of 78. 

Weather is a common topic of con- 

versation here in New England. It's di- 
versity, the difficulty in accurately pre- 
dicting it, and the intensity of what may 
finally arrive are factors that plague area 
residents. This past February a storm 
with hurricane winds dropped over a 
ton of snow on the eastern coastline 
which was still recovering from a lesser 
horror in January. 
The storm intensified for thirty-two 

hours and forty minutes and when it 
was over, fifty-four persons were dead 
including twenty-nine in Massachu- 
setts. More than 10,000 persons living 
on the coastline were evacuated from 
their homes. Some 3,000 cars and 500 
trucks were stranded just on an eight- 
mile stretch of Route 128. A record 
twenty-seven inches of snow fell and 
tide levels reached more than sixteen

Women's Week 

International Women's Week (March 
6-11) was celebrated at UMass this year 
with a week of activities, ranging from 
concerts and theatrical presentations 
to lectures and workshops on a variety 
of topics related to women's lives. 

The celebration officially opened 
Sunday with a concert featuring singer/ 
cultural worker Holly Near. Before 
Near came onstage Irene Richard, Stu- 

dent Activites Program Advisor and 
organizer of the week's activities, wel- 
comed the 2000 people present to In- 
ternational Women's Week at UMass. 
Byrdie Klix, workshop coordinator, 
gave a brief rundown of the week's ac- 
tivities and UMass student Aundre 
Clinton read a poem dedicated to her 

"You're going to hear a lot of songs 
about women's lives tonight," said Near 
after her opening number, "mostly not 

the kind you'll hear on AM radio." 

For the following two hours. Near 
and accompanist Judie Thomas guided 
the audience from smiles to tears and 
back again with stories of women in 
many different situations — from those 
taken away by the Chilean junta to 
those standing defiantly on the Appala- 
chian soil which the "big machines" of 
strip-mining threaten to literally pull 
out from under them. 

The concert closed with Near asking 

An Enliglitening Time For All: 

Men's Weekend 

Men's Liberation: From Brutal To Gen- 
tle Gender Tyranny 

This article is a gathering of instances 
in which men have demonstrated con- 
tempt for women. The latest and possi- 
bly the most refined version of this 
contempt is the Men's Liberation 

Men's Liberation is a reaction to 
feminist dignity and call for justice. This 
reaction has taken the form of a many 
tenticled co-optation of feminist con- 
sciousness-raising experiences. To ex- 
pose this political and moral irresponsi- 
bility of men is a serious and most fun- 
damental necessity. Such justice must 
be done with clarity, honesty and truth. 
What 1 have written does not have all 
the whys and hows adequately an- 
swered. Rather, I mean these words to 
simply be an act of refusal to tell lies 
about men's intentions and purposes. 
Any man's intent and purpose is 
clear: he values his life over woman's, 
and he works to ensure his ownership 
and exploitation of women by acting 
against women's bodies and minds. 
When a male in this culture ascribes to 
these ethics and politics, that male is 
aspiring to be a man. For instance: a 
male is a man when he dismisses or 
defends a newspaper's sabotage of 
feminist journalism (i.e. the University 
of Massachusetts Daily Collegian). A 
male is a man when, upon request by a 
companion woman hitch-hiker that he 
sit next to the male driver, he claims to 
be oppressed by being stereo-typed as 
"the protector". And a male is a man 
when he thinks silently to himself or 
hisses aloud at a feminist demonstrator, 
"Dyke — what she needs is a good 
f— ." These are instances of masculinity 

and manhood, the intents and pur- 
poses of which are to make a male un- 
like woman, thereby making him a 

Being a man then is clearly a moral 
injustice to all women. Being a man 
then is a crime against all woman. And 
because no woman, in her heart of 
hearts, chooses such indignity and 
abuse I believe that being a man is the 
rape of women's lives. 

To identify with the Men's Liber- 
ation Movement a male must cooper- 
ate with an unspoken pledge of alle- 
giance. The pledge goes something like 
this: "Every sane man is accountable to 
his conscience for his behavior." You 
can find this statement in Webster's In- 
ternational Unabridged Dictionary 
where it used to explain the word ac- 
countable. I reject this statement, this 
allegiance to men, on three counts. 

First, for as long as there has been 
written history, sanity has been defined 
on men's terms. For example, sanity in 
this culture is the tacit assumption by 
the medical health establishment that 
women's bodies are rightfully laborato- 
ries for scientific research and practice. 
The consequences are appalling. 

In 1970, in San Antonio, Texas, Dr. 
Joseph Goldzieher gave sugar pills and 
contraceptive foam to 390 Chicano 
women who believed they were get- 
ting birth-control pills. Goldzieher was 
studying whether women unknowingly 
taking placebos would have the same 
side effects as women using oral con- 
traceptives. Four months later ten 
women became pregnant — unfortu- 
nate side effects. 

Or consider the fact that punctures 
and infections from intrauterine de- 
vices occur far more frequently than 
conventional health agencies care to 
talk about, and that no physician or re- 

searcher is certain of the effect on a 
woman's body of the copper in a Cop- 
per-? lUD. 

Consider as well that in a UMass Peer 
Sex Education course, future student 
educators are taught the "safety" rates 
of various contraceptive devices. If, 
however, a male were to truly consider 
the consequences of his participation 
in the act through which human life is 
created, rather than reducing contra- 
ception to a matter of statistical conve- 
nience, his erotic attitude towards his 
lover would change markedly. 

But to be a man means to enjoy con- 
venience, liberty, safety and profit at 
every woman's expense. It is not inci- 
dental that these physicians, gynecolo- 
gists, researchers, marketing adminis- 
trators and educators are predominant- 
ly all men. 

Another example of sanity is this cul- 
ture's complacent and titilated accep- 
tance of pornography. Hustlerand Hol- 
lywood, Madison Avenue and the mu- 
sic industry, all thrust their cameras and 
microphones into the collective dignity 
of woman-kind. Woman's bodies are 
chained, clawed, and tethered in 
leather on the record jackets of Atlan- 
tic, Electra and Warner. "Ironic" and 
"satirical" movies like Inserts, shown 
this year at UMass, display vivid rapes 
and batterings without a single coher- 
ent repudiation of these crimes. The 
UMass Peer Sex Education course nev- 
er once discussed rape, battering, or 
pornography. Because this terrorism 
and torture is accepted as normal — 
thus sane. These photographers, busi- 
ness managers, editors and educators 
are, in overwhelming majority, men. 

Or consider this judicial practice of 
American cultural sanity. It is generally 
known that police will not intervene in 
the battering of a woman by a man if 


the audience to join her in harmoniz- 
ing to the last phrase of "Nicholia". The 
harmony could still be heard as people 
left the Fine Arts Center. 

Monday morning brought the start 
of the workshops, which were facilitat- 
ed by area women and visiting lecturers 
and artists. Various aspects of women's 
health care, feminist political theory, 
history and women's culture were ex- 
plored in the workshops, which were 
very well run and enthusiastically at-

this violence takes place within the 
couple's house or apartment. I know 
this to be true because I lived upstairs 
from a woman whose lover brutalized 
her frequently. 1 called the Amherst 
police on two occasions. They made 
token appearances to admonish what 
was already finished. The counsel they 
gave this woman, only after my repeat- 
ed requests, was a noncommital and 
oblique directive to either file a com- 
plaint, move out of the apartment, or 
get rid of the man. This woman was 
poor. She was severely emaciated from 
trauma, stress and depression. She was 
incapable of setting up another house- 
hold. She spent days and days trying to 
untangle the callous web of legal dis- 
crimination against women of her lot, 
and ended up resigning her hope for 
safety to the poker-table negotiations 
of the male defense and prosecuting 
attorneys. Her victimization never be- 
came a case. Liberty and justice is not 
for all. The police, judges, attorneys, 
batterers — the vast majority of all 
these are men. 

And finally, the trend setters of theo- 
retical and applied sanity — our mental 
health establishment — promotes as 
well this culture's pact against women. 
The now classic study by Inge K. Bro- 
verman (et. al.) clearly exposes the mas- 
culinization of our society's norm for 
mental health. In this study semantic 
sex-role questionnaires were distribut- 
ed to seventy-nine practicing mental 
health clinicians. These men and wom- 
en were asked to describe a "mature, 
healthy, socially competent adult wom- 
an", and describe the same for men and 
adults (in the latter no sex was speci- 
fied). The results reveal that what these 
professionals consider healthy for fe- 
males is unhealthy for males, and like- 
wise what is healthy for males is un- 

healthy for females. An adult, however, 
is most healthy when he or she thinks, 
feels, and acts most like a man: "Our 
hypothesis that a double standard of 
health exists for men and women was 
thus confirmed: the general standard of 
health (adult, sex unspecified) is actual- 
ly applied to men only, while healthy 
women are perceived as significantly 
less healthy by adult standards." 

The double standard for women 
which Broverman speaks of is accom- 
panied by a vicious double-bind. If a 
woman refuses to participate in the 
cultural asylum determined for her — if 
she refuses to recline, to be naive and 
quiet, to be ever patient, supportive 
and supine — then she will endure lu- 
rid ridicule, she will meet threats of 
rape, she will he raped and beaten, she 
may even get locked up and have a 
piece of her brain cut away. Because a 
woman is not a man — the Slave is not 
the Master. For men there is no dou- 
ble-bind. Their standard is quite 
straight-forward. Men are the masters 
of this culture. Men are the master ar- 
biters of sanity. 

I think that by way of what I have 
explained so far it is clear that what 
men consider sane is basically a loath- 
ing of womankind. Which brings me to 
the second point of rejection: that 
men's behavior is purposefully and in- 
tentionally meant to engineer this anti- 
woman sanity. The common refrain of 
all the examples above is that every 
man, in every instance, basically hates 
every woman. Because being a man 
means, in every instance, not being a 
woman. Because in order not to be a 
woman a man must, in every instance, 
demonstrate his actual dr potential 
control of women. Only by such acts 
will other men know to what extent he 
is worthy of being called a man. This 

worth, a man's self-worth, is his con- 

With this the third and last point of 
rejection. The content of a man's cons- 
cience is what he thinks, feels, and acts. 
The content of a man's conscience 
takes shape, gains form, by his fraterni- 
ty with men. The form of a man's con- 
science is the principle that men do not 
pat each other on the back for being 
men — they pat each other on the back 
for not being a woman. Whether this 
back-patting is an act of warning, con- 
gratulations, reassurance, or appease- 
ment, the principle motivations are 
anti-woman thoughts and feelings. This 
is the form and content of every man's 
conscience to which every man 
chooses to be accountable. 

A man is accountable to his con- 
science because that is the only way he 
knows, in private, that he's a success at 
being a man. A man is also accountable 
to other men because this is the way in 
which he can enjoy his birth-right 
privileges and prestige. A man is addi- 
tionally accountable to other men be- 
cause this is the way men best rule 
women's lives. Such tyranny of woman- 
kind is of course necessary, because it 
ensures that women will be available to 
be hated, owned and exploited, to be 
the means by which any man, in private 
or in public, can exercise the form and 
content of his conscience. 

"Every sane man is accountable to his 
conscience for his behavior." This con- 
science, this accountability, this alle- 
giance to men, is clearly insane. Is it 
really any wonder that men strategize 
so keenly to avoid being accountable to 
women — the victims of their con- 
sciences? Is it really any surprise that 
men's latest strategy is the Men's Liber- 
ation Movement? 

What I have explained above is not 


song to the working people of this 
land." It depicted the lives and strug- 
gles of miners and their families in the 
Appalachian coal fields.

theory. It is the observable reality of 
what men do and say amongst men, 
what men do and say against women. 
Here are some examples from the 
UMass men's centers and the men's 
conference "Men Supporting Men" 
held April 9, 1978 at this University. 

Sam Julty is the author of the book 
Male Sexual Performance. He lectures 
around the United States on Men's Is- 
sues and the Men's Movement. He was 
the keynote speaker for this spring's 
second annual men's conference. This 
is what he said in an interview during 
that conference: "I went through a cri- 
sis with my sexuality — not a homosex- 
ual thing — and was beginning to be- 
come active in the men's movement" 
(Daily Hampshire Gazette, April 12, 
1978, "Men's Lib."). The message here 
is not idiosyncratic to Sam julty. A male 
staffperson at the Southwest's Men's 
Center said in another interview, 
"We've got a P. R. problem. We keep 
having to assure men that this center is 
not run by 'a bunch of faggots'," (Valley 
Advocate, October 9, 1977, "Men's 
Groups Trying to Unlearn the Lesson"). 
This same man said again in yet another 
interview, "Most men when they hear 
of it (the men's center) resist. Their first 
thought of anybody who questions the 
male role is that the person is gay. 
That's not true, but we just pass it off" 
(Hampshire Life, April 8, 1978, "Men"). 

Men call these fears homophobia. 
Feminists know these fears to be wom- 
an-hate, circumscribed by violence. 
The message is distinct. The challenge 
of the Men's Liberation Movement is 
to prove that participating men are 
really just one of the guys. Because be- 
ing one of the guys means not in any 
way to be effeminized, not in any way 
to be like woman. 

In the closets of their minds men are 

well aware that they are expected to, 
and do, willingly avenge any acts slan- 
derous to manhood. This principle be- 
gins with the uncontrolled rage wrent 
upon mother and her male child. 
Mother gets a beating from Father, in 
front of the child or behind closed 
doors, for either stepping out of line as 
a woman or for not appropriately mas- 
culinizing father's little son. The male 
child gets a beating because he acts like 
mother or like little girls. All in all, the 
bludgeoning tyrades of Father echo 
with a familiar scream — hate of wom- 
an. Mothers endure this hate, learning 
to be subservient in order to be safe, to 
survive, to be good wives and responsi- 
ble parents. Little boys brave the trau- 
ma, soon learning the acts that keep 
Father's vengeance at bay. These acts 
make little boys into men. 

And men keep on beating on each 
other, to remind themselves that they 
are not in any way like woman. This is 
called competition. Men in the move- 
ment don't like this stress and strain: 
"Look at all the men that are having 
heart attacks and ulcers because they 
can't show their emotions. It drives 
them to an early grave," (Daily Hamp- 
shire Gazette, idem). Men in the move- 
ment say they would rather be gentle 
with each other — would rather not be 
victims of their "alienating" socializa- 
tion. The truth, however, behind this 
dissatisfaction with competition is that 
ulcers, heart attacks, and a shorter life- 
span deplete men's resources for their 
conquest of women. Only by violence 
against women can men moderate vio- 
lations amongst themselves. 

As well, men's competition is incom- 
patable with their utilitarian need to 
co-opt feminist's hard-won battles, to 
bridle women's autonomy and inde- 
pendence. One option by which a man 

can adjust to a woman-identified- 
woman is to become a liberated man. 
in this way a man ensures that his con- 
science will still function true to form. 
This is what it means to be gentle and 
yet still be one of the guys. 

Violence is necessary for males to live 
as men. Adherents to conventional 
manhood fear men who advocate the 
liberated masculinity. Because these 
men go around hugging each other and 
talking about the perplexities of their 
penises. They talk about nurturance 
and emotions and they cry. They can't 
be men, these pussy-whipped sissies, 
these faggots. For they are, to each oth- 
er, non-violent. 

Men in the movement feel their dig- 
nities are violated when they hear 
themselves referred to as faggots, be- 
cause these men en route to liberation 
fear gay men. Because to lie with a man 
as with a woman is to commit the ulti- 
mate sin — to not be a man (Leviticus, 
18:22 — Christian Bible). After all, in a 
man's conscience womer) are to be 
f , literally and figuratively, not oth- 
er men. 

This leaves a real dilemma for gay 
men. Because gay men want a piece of 
the pie too; they want access to the 
privileges and power accrued to 
straight men. The movie entitled Word 
Is Out, shown at the men's conference, 
is a documentary which accurately un- 
veils the systematic brutality waged 
against homosexual women and men. 
But did this film, did any of the gay 
workshops, deal with how gay men act- 
out their hate of women? There is in- 
deed such hate amongst gay males who 
identify as men. I just recently walked 
down Christopher Street in New York 
City (the evening prior to N.Y.C.'s Gay 
Pride Week) and was mauled by the 
hundreds of eyes stalking the meat 


rang to the rich, full sound of Bernice 
Reagon and Siveef Honey In The Rock. 
Sweet Honey is a group of four women 
who research, collect, write and per- 
form music about the experience of 
being Black in America. Their reper- 
toire spans prison songs of the rural 
South, Gospel, blues and Black wom- 
en's love songs. 

Other highlights of the week includ- 
ed exhibits of women's art, a disco for 
women and a Hillel brunch featuring 

speakers on "Women In Jewish Life." year's Women's Week celebration, the

market for a love-less suck. I saw in the 
gay bookstores the plethora of S & M 

magazines with fist f , torture racks, 

chains and whips. No. I didn't feel bad 
that I love a male, because I could 
quickly see what our relationship 
wasn't. But I did feel sick and repulsed 
at what this violence means for women. 
Again, men were seeking to be men, 
demonstrating their savage disdain for 
women by acting out the holocaust of 
heterosexuality: Master and Slave, 
Powerful and Powerless, Sadist and 
Masochist, Butch and Femme. 

It does not matter so much that con- 
ventional men fear liberated men, and 
that liberated men fear gay men. What 
matters more is that wherever there are 
men — conventional, liberated, or gay 
— women will suffer, violently. 

There is so much more to be said. But 
I must end here by drawing a vital con- 
clusion and suggesting some practical 
means by which a man might begin to 
do justice. 

Men in support groups, 'the heart of 
the movement', talk a lot about creat- 
ing intimacy and trust between men, 
talk a lot about mythical standards 
they've had to live up to, talk a lot 
about how difficult it is to be a man. 
Because these men would like to think 
that what women experienced in femi- 
nist consciousness-raising groups is 
what men will experience also. Because 
these men choose to distort and trivia- 
lize the drastic difference between the 
daily life of any woman and the daily 
life of any man. 

Men do not talk about what they do 
and say against women. Because to be- 
gin to talk about their silence or the 
voice of their deeds would be to risk 
exposing their consciences. For at this 
time in history men's consciences are 
ruthlessly pitted against the minds and 

bodies of women. Men do want to be 
accountable to women for either their 
brutal or gentle gender tyranny. 

Men escape gender justice by saint- 
ing themselves with the false integrity 
of self-liberation. Such treachery is 
what motivated the words of a fellow 
Southwest Men's Center staffperson 
preparing for a Men and Rape work- 
shop which he was about to co-facili- 
tate: "Look, if those women get really 
stormed up then I'll either just leave or 
stay and stick it out. ! mean it's the end 
of the semester, you know; it's the last 
thing I've got to do and then I can just 
go home." Only a man could walk away 
like this, because only men have liberty 
from the constant threat of rape. 

Men escape gender justice with "... 
the notion that only a small sub-group 
of men really have control ..." (Valley 
Advocate). No. Every man has control 
because, by definition, he charts the 
course of his life by the map of mascu- 
linity. The terrain on this map is mea- 
sured by the success of his allegiance to 
other men, and by the prowess and 
visibility of his genital conquest of a 
woman. Any male, in this culture, who 
in any way prides himself on being a 
man chooses, condones, and continues 
the plunder of women's lives. Any 
male's denial of this fact is a lie. Such a 
lie makes him a man. 

But men can choose to tell the truth. 
Any man can choose to un-become a 
man. Men, men's centers, and men's 
gay alliances could begin to be justly 
accountable with the conscience in the 
following three ways. 

First, a man could begin to really lis- 
ten to women. By hearing women's 
voice and anger a man might begin to 
understand that women are authentic 
human beings, that they (not men) are 
the authorities on what it means to be a 

woman, and that they must and should 
be authors — on their own terms — of 
their own lives and of this culture. 

Second, a man could begin to read 
feminist literature, to do his home- 
work, so as to absorb the reality of 
women's daily lives. You don't do this 
for a week or a month or so. Such a 
commitment would mean embarking 
on a complete revolution in one's edu- 
cation, a revolution that means the sub- 
stance of one's every breath and the 
duration of one's lifetime. 

Third would be this man's conviction 
to practice what he is learning to be 
truth. I think John Stoltenberg said it 
best in his essay Toward Gender Jus- 
tice: "... I imagine that a genital male 
could begin to live as a conscientious 
objector to all the scenarios of male 
bonding — to refuse to cooperate with 
all the patterns of expectation that, 
whenever two males meet, they are to 
respect one another's masculinity and 
Condon one another's power over 
women. What is necessary is for genital 
males to betray the presumptions of 
their own gender class — conspicuous- 
ly, tactically, and uncompromisingly. 
The alternative, as I see it, is to betray 
every woman who has ever said she is 
not free" (For Men Against Sexism). 

I believe that on these terms a male 
might do justice, might un-become a 
man. I believe that on these terms jus- 
tice might mean: that the woman to 
whom a man is son, the woman to 
whom he is brother, the woman to 
whom he is husband, the woman to 
whom he is father, the woman to 
whom he is friend or aquaintance or 
even unknown, that they might know 
from him a word, an act, that finally 
could be said to be Right.

The Mideast Conflict 

For four years since the Yom Kippur 
war of 1973 a comprehensive settle- 
ment between the Arab world and Is- 
real had seemed conditional upon a 
Geneva peace conference co-spon- 
sored by the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., and 
this supposition was confirmed in a 
joint U.S.-Soviet declaration of Octo- 

ber 1, 1977. 

On November 9, however, Egypt's 
President Sadat declared after visiting 
Saudi Arabia that he was ready to go to 
the Israeli parliament itself to discuss 
peace; Israel's Prime Minister Begin 
formally invited him to Jerusalem; and 
his visit in mid-November, after thirty 
years of non-communication, coin- 
cided with the Muslim festival that 

commemorates Abraham's sacrifice of 
a ram (traditionally, on the site later oc- 
cupied by the Jerusalem temple) in 
place of his son Issac. Sadat's opening 
speech, broadcast all over the world, 
eloquently invoked the universality of 
Abraham as "the father of us all" — 
Jew, Christian, and Muslim alike. 

This historic meeting was publicly 
welcomed by no spokesperson of any

A Fortnight Of Discord 

The women's department of the 
Massachusetts Daily Collegian had a 
rather spectacular emergence in the 
spring of 1978. The position of wom- 
en's editor was created by the Colle- 
gian staii in December of 1977, replac- 
ing the women's coordinator position. 
Julie Melrose, elected as the first full- 
term women's editor, campaigned with 
the intention of making women's news 
an integral part of the newspaper. 

As she, and other members of the 
women's department discovered, the 
Collegian news department was not 
particularly senstitive to women's news 
in terms of editing and placement. The 
women's editor, although a voting 
member of the Board of Editors, could 
not edit her own staff stories, nor did 
she have a voice in where those stories 

On March 9, 1978, the women's edi- 
tor and assistant women's editor sent a 
memo to the Collegian Managing Edi- 
tor requesting editorial control of sto- 
ries generated by the women's depart- 
ment and that women's news assume 
appropriate priority in space budgeting 
of the paper. This and ensuing requests 
for departmental autonomy were ig- 
nored by the Collegian Board of Edi- 
tors. The women's editor then asked 
for support from other campus organi- 
zations which were sensitive to dis- 
criminatory practices. The Everywo- 
man's Center helped coordinate this 
show of support and on April 12th, 
eighty women representing sixteen 
campus organizations attended a Colle- 
gian board meeting, demanding that 
the board meet the requests of the 
women's department staff. 

After four negative votes, the Board 
of Editors, under the pressure of a Stu- 

dent Senate vote supporting the wom- 
en's news department and an occupa- 
tion of the Collegian newsroom by the 
eighty women, voted in favor of the 
women's news proposal. The proposal 
included total editorial control over 
four ad-free pages per week in the Col- 
legian and space for women's news on 
days which women's pages did not ap- 
pear. Bill Sundstrom, Collegian Editor- 
in-Chief, signed the agreement for the 

A week later, on April 20th, the Col- 
legian staff overturned the Board's de- 
cision by a vote of 98-28. Over one 
hundred concerned women and men 
attended this staff meeting to support 
the women's department. These sup- 
porters left the meeting after the vote 
and broke off into small groups to de- 
cide that night a boycott of the Colle-

lowing week and picket lines would be 


major Arab state, and condemned by 
the more extreme governments in- 
cluding that of Syria. The high hopes 
that it engendered in the larger world 
were gradually dispelled: Sadat had 
made peace conditional on Isreal's 
withdrawl to her narrow borders be- 
fore the 1967 war and on Palestinian 
self-determination on the "West Bank" 
of the River Jordan; Begin, on the other 

hand, persisted in a biblical chauvinism 
in which that region despite its over- 
whelming Arab majority, was called 
"Judea" and "Samaria", and his govern- 
ment continued to uphold the right of 
Israelis to establish new civilian settle- 
ments on sites of biblical (or strategic?) 
significance on the West Bank and even 
in eastern Sinai which had been inter- 
nationally recognized as Egyptian until 

the 1967 war. 

In an increasingly frigid atmosphere 
Egyptian-Israeli staff talks in Jerusalem 
and Cairo ground to a halt; the pres- 
ence of a State Department mediator 
did not provide the necessary lubrica- 
tion; and visits of the two national lead- 
ers to President Carter in early Febru- 
ary 1978 and March 21-23 respectively 
failed to create new initiatives. Begin,

set up. 

The picket line formed around the 
following Monday's Collegian prevent- 
ed many people from reading the 
newspaper that day. Collegian editors 
were forced to hand out papers indi- 
vidually in front of the Student Union. 
This tactic was decidedly effective but 
it also isolated many members of the 
campus community. The picketers 
changed tactics the next day and for 
the rest of the week becoming less hos- 
tile to readers of the Collegian. 

Five women representing the wom- 
en's community entered negotiations 
with the Collegian seeking a solution to 
the women's news problem. The news- 
paper's compromise proposal was not 
accepted by a majority of the women's 
news supporters. On Monday, May 1, 
fifty women barricaded themselves in 
the Collegian office complex in the 
Campus Center to protest what they 

referred to as the "stalling tactics" of 

The boycott and pickets continued 
for eleven days, as did the occupation 
of the newspaper office. The occupa- 
tion displaced not only the Collegian 
but also the staffs of the Index, Spec- 
trum, Stostag, and the Sports Coop. 

During the occupation, the Collegian 
continued to publish a daily newspa- 
per. The paper was greatly reduced in 
size due to the loss of advertising re- 
cords. Nightly production occurred in 
various staff members apartments until 
the paper established temporary of- 
fices in Goodell FHall. 

Inside the occupied offices, the 
women set up a phone network to 
contact supporters. They received 
messages of support from feminists 
Betty Freidan, Mary Daly, and also Re- 
presentative Elaine Noble, D-Cam- 
bridge. The occupation became a me- 

dia event when Andrea Dworkin and 
Robin Morgan, both nationally known 
radical feminists, appeared at a rally on 
May 8th to support the occupiers. 

The media also covered the activities 
in the Collegian office complex. Julie 
Melrose granted an interview to the 
Greenfield Recorder in which she de- 
scribed the community within the of- 
fice as communal — "surviving under 
these conditions, our traditional female 
socialization in terms of nest-building 
and cooperation has worked to our ad- 

This women's community remained 
in the newspaper offices until renewed 
negotiations offered a compromise. 
The womens community and the Col- 
legian agreed to participate in a fact- 
finding commission on women's news 
in the paper over the summer. The 
women's community left the Collegian 
offices on May 12th.

Racial Awareness 

Throughout 1977-1978, many inci- 
dents of blatant racism occurred on the 
UMass campus, on other surrounding 
campuses, and in the nation. Students, 
faculty, and administrators witnessed a 
countless number of racist actions/be- 
haviors: Klan-like cross burnings, at 
UMass and Hampshire College, Third 
World students called stereotypic de- 
rogatory names, demeaning racial and 
anti-Semitic statements written on 
walls in dorms, classrooms, hallways, 
bathrooms, etc., whites ridiculing black 
music, black art, black dance, etc., 
white students running on the Third 
World senatorial ballot, racial incidents 
carefully avioded or dismissed as pranks 
or the work of a few drunks by campus 
administrators, and bitter resentment 
voiced by whites about the so-called 
privileges and special admissions ac- 
corded to the Third World students 
could be heard most anywhere on 

Since the early 70s, the University has 
committed both personnel and re- 
sources to counteract and possibly 
eliminate the many manifestations of 
individual as well as institutional racism. 
Anti-racist educational programs have 
continued to exist in the residential 
areas, but, have experienced severe 
cutbacks in funding. Most programs are 
presently in jeopardy of being phased 
out as limited funds and the institu- 
tion's commitment to combat racism 
continues to decrease. 
In the Northeast/Sylvan Area, a three 

credit course on White Racism and 
Cultural Awareness along with collo- 
quia and workshops were designed to 
increase student awareness of the bat- 
tles and struggles which were being 
waged to eliminate white racism from 
Amherst to South Africa. Efforts on the 
part of the staff — racial awareness 
training specialist, resident assistants, 
heads of residence — have included 
the dissemination of information about 
cultural and racial differences and the 
operational existance of racism. Also, 
efforts included ways to help individ- 
uals to look at themselves in their rela- 
tion with others to glimpse the com- 
plex emotional chain reaction repre- 
sented by their racial attitudes. 

Many whites prefer to believe that 
racism is no longer a major problem on 
this campus nor within society. They do 
not know enough about the sources or 
effects of their behavior — or that of an 
institution's — to realize how it dam- 
ages someone of another race. Nor are 
whites aware that they, too, are victims 
of racism. White self-concepts are 
based on fallacies which contribute to a 
distorted (white) picture of the world. 
Racism reflects all the inadequacies of a 
poor self-concept. 

Few white people participate in anti- 
racist programs or course offerings; 
however, the need for such offerings 
continues to increase as incidents oc- 
cur. Some of these incidents were of 
shocking and alarming nature. In early 
October, a cross burning incident took 
place outside the Blue Wall during the 
late evening when many Third World 

students were present at a disco. The 
week prior to the Blue Wall incident, 
outside Merrill House at Hampshire 
College, a similar Klan-like cross burn- 
ing occurred as a Third World party was 
in progress. There was little action tak- 
en on the part of the UMass communi- 
ty to deal with the blatant and despica- 
ble act of racist violence as administra- 
tors dismissed the actions as "pranks" 
or the "work of a few drunks." 

There were many other racial inci- 
dents which resulted in much contro- 
versy within the — UMass community 
in 1977-1978. One of them was the 
election of three non-Third World stu- 
dents on the Third World ballot. These 
white students had run on the Third 
World ballot rather from their own 
dormitory or commuter constituency. 
Although two of the three people re- 
signed immediately, heated debate en- 
sued for over a month when the third 
white person refused to resign his seat 
on the grounds that the Senate consti- 
tution had no specific definition of 
Third World. As a result of his action, J 
many Student Senate sessions were " 
spent trying to define Third World. On 
the same November night the Student 
Senate Judiciary ruled that the defini- 
tion submitted by the Third World cau- 
cus (which specified Asian, African, Lat- 
in, and Native Americans as those stu- 
dents who may vote in Third World 
elections and hold Senate seats) was 
unconstitutional, the white person re- 
signed his seat. 

During the spring semester, another 
long drawn out controversy occurred 


the build-up of some 17,000 Cuban 
mercenaries of the U.S.S.R. in this the- 
atre, caused the conservative Saudi and 
Iranian governments to express alarm at 
the Soviet presence in this Red Sea/In- 
dian Ocean area and the lack of a posi- 
tive U.S. response. The Saudis contin- 
ued to exercise a moderating influence 
on OPEC petroleum prices, but the 
possibility of a repealed petroleum em- 

bargo in a new/ Arab-Israeli crisis re- 
mained. Farther north, the continuing 
deadlock in Turkish-Greek relations 
over Cyprus and over the definition of 
territorial waters in the Aegean still 
threatened the stability of this eastern 
wing of the NATO alliance, and specifi- 
cally impeded U.S. electronic surveil- 
lance of Soviet activities from installa- 
tions on Turkish soil. 

So although the face-to-face meet- 
ings of Israelis and Egyptians were a 
gain for common sense in an interna- 
tional climate that had so little of it, the 
further outlook remained SNAFU.

when funding a Black American Music 
Festival would ultimately result in the 
only "Spring Concert." Many white 
students expressed their resentment 
and concern that an all Black American 
music festival would not be responsive 
to their needs nor that it responded to 
the majority of student population. 
Many articles (for and against) the Duke 
Ellington Spring Music Featival ap- 
peared daily in the Collegian. Many 
conversations were heard expressing 
white culturebound attitudes which 
demeaned both black music and per- 
formers. The controversy over the mu- 
sic festival was but another blatant ex- 
ample of cultural racism. 

As much as the efforts to make inter- 
national Women's Week meaningful to 
all women, it reflected tinges of racism. 
Most of the Third World women's 
workshops were the last to be orga- 
nized and therefore, were not con- 
firmed in time to be included in the 
Women's Week brochure nor given 
room assignments in the Campus Cen- 
ter — where nearly all the other work- 
shops were held and childcare pro- 
vided. Although these consequences 
were unintentional, they were the 
product of a (white) culture that tends 
to perpetuate the invisiblity of Third 
World women rather consistently. As 
in this case, racism is often times a mat- 
ter of result rather than intention. 

Numerous people within the campus 
community worked diligently to ad- 
dress these issues in courses, work- 
shops, and informal discussions. Their 
efforts were not limited to campus is- 

sues but also to publicizing both na- 
tional and international occurrences of 

Many demonstrations, debates and 
workshops were organized to discuss 
and protest Prime Minister Vorster's 
blatantly racism regime in South Africa. 
Repressive government and police ac- 
tions were responsible for the Septem- 
ber 12th death of black nationalist lead- 
er Steven Biko and the October 19th 
crackdown on dissent which resulted 
in the shut down of three black publi- 
cations, killing hundreds, imprisoning 
hundreds which included forty-seven 
black activists and nearly 200 childern 
and disbanding eighteen black groups. 
Many petitions and letters were gath- 
ered and sent to President Carter call- 
ing for a U.S. economic embargo of 
South Africa. 

In South Africa, the doctrine of 
apartheid or racial seperation, is the 
official philosophy of the state, and is 
enforced upon everyone. Under 
apartheid over 18 million blacks have 
no political or economic rights but 
whose slave labor produces the 
nation's wealth; where eighty percent 
of the black majority lives below 
poverty level; where 450 U.S. 
corporations have provided crucial 
support to the white racist regime with 
the investment of 1.5 billion dollars. 
Trustees at UMass voted in October to 
divest all University stock in companies 
in South Africa. Hampshire and Smith 
Colleges also divested much of their 
stocks. However Amherst College 
Trustees refused to divest $20 million 

worth of stock in U.S. corporations 
with operations in South Africa. 

Many campus debates and 
demonstrations were also held in 
protest against the Supreme Court 
possibly ruling in favor of Bakke which 
would endanger the little progress that 
has occurred in equalizing 
opportunities in higher education. 
Other concerns addressed were 
protesting the rise in neo-Nazi 
activities and the planned march in 
Skokie, Illinios; the recent upsurge of 
the Ku Klux Klan across the country; 
sterilization of Third World women in 
the U.S. and Puerto Rico; and protests 
which supported the liberation 
struggle for the independence of 
Puerto Rico. 

At UMass and throughout the nation, 
much hard work has been put into 
eliminating racism; however, it has not 
been able to stop racism altogether. 
Throughout the nation, affirmative 
action programs at institutions of 
higher education are on the decline. 
There continues to be less concern and 
commitment to bring about economic, 
educational, and social parity for all 
people within the United States. At 
UMass, all people, especially whites, 
must become more conscious of the 
widespread existence of racism in all its 
forms, and the immense costs it 
imposes on the entire society. Much 
more responsibility needs to be taken, 
again by whites, to help bring about the 
elimination of racism and create a more 
enhancing, just society for all people.

Toward Tomorrow 

The third annual Toward Tomorrow 
Fairwas held June 16-18 here at UMass. 
Sponsored by the Summer Session Of- 
fice, the fair featured over 400 exhibits 
and presentations, and more than thirty 
nationally recognized speakers who 
displayed and discussed alternative 
technologies and social options for the 
present and the future. 

Toward Tomorrow '75 focused on al- 

ternative energy and -.nelter with solar 
energy systems, wind generators, wood 
stoves, and eight dome-shaped struc- 
tures, which comprised a large segment 
of the outdoor exhibits. There were 
also demonstrations in home construc- 
tion for the do-it-yourselfers. 

Exhibits and presentations in New 
England agriculture, fish-farming, land 
use, education, health, food and nutri- 
tion, and conservation rounded out the 
fair's emphasis on alternative ap- 

proaches to lifestyles and living. 

The keynote address, entitled "Mak- 
ing Solar Energy Work", was delivered 
by Barry Commoner, environmentalist, 
biologist, and author of several books 
including The Closing Circle. Buckmin- 
ster Fuller, designer, architect, humani- 
tarian, and author of over thirty-five 
books, including his most recent. Syn- 
ergetics, spoke both at the fair and dur- 
ing the World Game Workshops which 
continued for four days after the fair.

Because of the advancements in 
medicine, older Americans are around 
in greater numbers than before. Not 
long ago these people were part of the 
family's environment; they participated 
at every level of family interaction. In 
the last few decades, however, society 
has changed rapidly. People have 
moved to the city, to apartments and 
smaller houses. Young people became 
more involved in careers, in institutions 
outside the family, focusing intensely 
on the future lest the rapidity of 
change pass them by. 

As a result of this process, youth-ori- 
ented America lost sight of the past and 
its symbols: the old people in our 
midst. They have virtually become a 
lost continent amid an entire culture 
incapable of appreciating the vast 
amount they have to offer. 

This may be our society's greatest 
tragedy. For while society loses out on 
all of the benefits older people have to 
offer, many older people retire and 
waste away physically and emotionally 
because of their inactivity and degrad- 
ed self-image. 

When 1 was working for the Belcher- 
town Council on Aging, 1 observed this 
needless waste of energy and creativity, 
and knew what feeling helpless was all 
about. Then an idea occured to me: 
why not have a school where all the 
instructors are senior citizens? It took 
about a minute to sink in; then the idea 
became as natural and practical as a 
hawk using his wings to soar. 

School For All Seasons became a re- 
ality shortly after, with its first class held 


in the Belchertown Junior-Senior High 
School. The first course to be offered 
was a bee-keeping class instructed by 
seventy-nine year old beekeeper, Neil 
Cochran. For all the pupils cared, Neil 
could have been twenty-nine. As a re- 
sult of Neil's course, every pupil went 
out and bought bee-keeping equip- 

Soon the community will have the 
oppurtunity to benefit from the exper- 
ience and wisdom of its older mem- 
bers. School For All Seasons will be 
running such courses as bee-keeping, 
banjo, photography, art, mandolin, gui- 
tar, and a course in how to cope with 
loss, entitled "Loss Does Not Mean Los- 
ing," We may have a course entitled 
"Inside the C.I. A." taught by a retired 
C.I. A. agent. 

Possible credit courses include 
Shakespeare, Dante, Chaucer, Logic, 
Experiments in Creative Writing, Your 
Small Vegetable Garden, a geology 
course entitled "Knowing Your Con- 
necticut Valley", History of Music 

Style, Community Ecological Problems, 
Plain Surveying, Food Science and Nu- 
trition, and a graduate psychology 
course. Many School For All Seasons 
professors are retired department 
heads or deans from the five college 

Besides courses. School For All Sea- 
sons has some other projects planned, 
or in the works. A School For All Sea- 
sons Theatre Workshop is underway, 
run by Ricky Mazer of Amherst. Other 
upcoming projects include a film festi- 
val stressing intergenerational themes, 
and an encounter group specifically fit- 
ted to the needs of older people. Saul 
Rotman, the psychologist who will run 
the group, is himself an older individ- 
ual. The film festival will probably be 
held in the fall of 1978 at the Pleasant 
Street Cinema in Northampton. 

The stigmas of old age are on a see- 
saw with the stereotypes of old age. 
These stereotypes influence what soci- 
ety thinks about older people and per- 
haps, more importantly, what older 
people think of themselves. The great- 
est danger occurs when older people 
begin to believe that there is some sort 
of secret justice in making them soci- 
ety's expendable elements. 

When planned obsolescence crosses 
over the line from light bulbs and spark 
plugs — to human beings — perhaps 
the time has come for younger people 
to get of their ages and rally to support 
the people they will someday become. 

— Doug Warner 


World Game was based on Fuller's be- 
lief that there are enough resources to 
satisfy 100% of humanities needs, and 
focused on energy and shelter, explor- 
ing strategies for meeting world-wide 

Other speakers included: Hazel Hen- 
derson, Co-Director of the Princeton 
Center for Alternative Futures; Nicho- 
las Johnson, former Federal Communi- 
cations Commissioner; Evelyn Murphy, 
Executive Secretary of Environmental 

Affairs for the Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts; Stewart Udall, former Sec- 
retary of the Interior; and representa- 
tives from the Department of Energy, 
the Farmers Home Administration, and 
over twenty-five other private and 
public agencies. 

Pete Seeger opened the fair with a 
benefit concert for Toward Tomorrow. 
More than twenty-five different musi- 
cians performed throughout the week- 
end on the outdoor stage. 

Children's activities included spin- 
ning and weaving demonstrations, ice- 
cream making, a presentation by the 
Poor House Puppets Theatre, paper re- 
cycling, and much more. 

Although attendance figures were 
down from 25,000 last year to 18,000 
this year, everyone who attended felt 
that they learned a lot about what they 
may be able to expect in the future.

Carter's Conference 

President Carter's opposition to the 
tuition tax credit bill for college was the 
major part of a White House briefing 
for college editors and news directors 
in March of 1978. It was the first time a 
President had ever called a news con- 
ference solely for college journalists. 

The tuition tax credit bill, devised by 
the House Ways and Means Commit- 
tee, is "ill advised and not well fo- 
cused," the President said, while he 
maintained his proposal to increase aid 
to college students that will "help 
those families most in need." 

The Carter proposal, which he said 
would affect students more than the 
tuition tax credit and be "less than half 
the cost," would increase aid to college 
students by 1.46 billion dollars. 

Three focuses of the Carter plan are 
direct grants to students from middle 
income families, the authorization of 
increased loans to students, and the ex- 
pansion of work study programs on 
the nation's campuses. 

The House bill, termed a "boon to 
affluent families" by the President, 
would provide tax credits of twenty- 
five percent of the cost of college or 
other post-secondary tuition, up to a 
maximum credit of $250 a year. 

Journalists at the conference also 
quizzed Carter on the nation's econo- 
my, amnesty, the Equal Rights Amend- 

ment, his participation in fund-raising 
events for political candidates, and 
speculation that he is a "one-term 

The news conference was preceded 
by a briefing by Carter's top advisors in 
foreign and domestic affairs and the 
Department of Health, Education and 
Welfare. The 200 students went to the 
old executive building across the street 
from the White House after receiving 
invitations and security clearances from 
the press office. There were also 
numerous checks by the Secret Service 
personnel during the briefing. 

After the conference. Carter praised 
college students in general for having a 
flexibility of thought and analysis, and 
said these qualities were an advantage 
allowing students to freely express sup- 
port and criticism of the government. 

"I don't believe there's a dormancy 
among college students. Despite criti- 
cism from some of the media, the com- 
mitment is still there," he said.

Learning Tomorrows 

The Learning Tomorrows Confer- 
ence, sponsored by the School of Edu- 
cation, was an exciting survey of the 
possibilities for and challenges to edu- 
cation. Most of the 250 presenters, 
which included such well known edu- 
cators as Jonathon Kozol, Nat Hentoff, 
Elise Boulding, Ivan lllich, Kenneth 
Clark, and Buckminster Fuller, agreed 

that contemporary education was do- 
ing far too little for the kids. Dr. Bould- 
ing argued that young people are in- 
creasingly "out of touch with the au- 
thenticity of human experience". 

Opinions diverged, of course, when 
remedies were proposed. Ivan lllich, 
social critic and author, maintained that 
"the need for education is a measure of 
society's decay." He pressed for his 
proposal: a learned and "deschooled 

society." Kozol suggested that U.S. 
educators model Cuba's success in fus- 
ing book and practical learning in 
schools. Kenneth Clark, well known 
civil rights activist and psychologist, 
suggested that educators begin to 
"train intelligence while at the same 
time socializing individuals to moral 
and human values."

participants came to the campus from

The future overtook the present at 
the University during April 1978. The 
visit of futurist, philosopher, architect, 
and poet, Buckminster Fuller, as a 
Scholar-in-Residence, and the 
convening of a national conference on 
the future of education — Learning 
Tomorrows — jointly altered UMass' 
time dimension. 

Dr. Fuller, known throughout the 
world as "Bucky", holds forty honorary 
degrees, though he never completed 
his Baccalaurate. During the month of 
April, Fuller served as a visiting faculty 
member of the School of Education's 
Future Studies Program. Bucky spoke 
twice before audiences in the Fine Arts 
Center and Bowker auditorium, met 
with informal School of Education 
graduate seminars, and addressed 
several classes, including a sixth grade 
class at Amherst's Marks Meadow 
Elementary School. 

During his stay, Bucky delivered a 

nine hour, three part lecture entitled, 
"Synergetic Explorations." Over 1500 
UMass students and area residents 
attended this extraordinary lecture, 
which ranged far and wide over topics 
in a variety of fields including: history, 
anthropology, physics, chemistry, 
economics, futuristics and design. 

It is impossible to summarize the 
ideas presented at the University, but 
before each group his basic message 
was the same. "Its part of your 
education," he said, "to get your senses 
to really tell the truth." We know 
better, for example, than to say the sun 
sets, when in fact, the Earth is turning. 
Such awareness, which links scientific 
knowledge to language and our 
everyday understanding, is what's 
behind Fuller's famed metaphor, 
"Spaceship Earth". 

Fuller has striven to advance these 
perceptions throughout his long ca- 
reer. His geodesic dome, which uses 
the sphere to enclose more space with 
less materials than any other shelter 

method, personifies Bucky's design ef- 
forts to "do more with less." At eighty- 
three, this native of Milton, Massachu- 
setts, claims he has discovered nature's 
coordinate system. With this "syner- 
getic geometry" Bucky urges us to ex- 
perience the world in an entirely new 

These are more than mere "aca- 
demic" matters to Bucky. Our global 
problems of hunger, energy and po- 
tential mass destruction by nuclear war 
or environmental crisis are addressed 
by Fuller. "We are in trouble today," he 
told his audience at the Fine Arts Cen- 
ter, "because people don't understand 
what is going on. We already have the 
technology to solve our problems but 
most people don't understnd it. If we 
are going to make it on this planet . . . 
the young will have to do it by virtue of 
everybody understanding and using 
what we know."

all over New England and from as far 
away as California. UMass students and 
visitors alike were introduced to a flur- 
ry of innovative educational programs 
and technologies over the four days. 
The newest television programming 
and computer-assisted learning tech- 
nologies were displayed. Scores of in- 
novative curriculd ideas were also pre- 
sented in the Learning Tomorrow's ex- 
tensive exhibit area. 

"The version of the future most of us 
see," explained Associate Professor 
Peter Wagschal. "Learning Tomorrows 
offers many complete and diverse 
visions of what education can be like. 
We hope we've succeeded in helping 
to make future possibilities in 
education more real for people." 

It was no surprise that Learning To- 
morrows' keynote speake.-, Bucky 
Fuller, presented the conference with 

both its most challenging and attractive 
future vision. "I know," he said, "that 
all politics are invalid, because we now 
have the knowledge to provide the en- 
tire world with the highest standard of 
living ever known. And if there is any 
future to education, it must be to help 
humanity understand that we have the 
option to succeed aboard Spaceship

We assume that in the good ole days 
the administration was well known and 
respected. But now students neither 
know them, nor necessarily respect them. 
It's impossible for a campus administrator 
to get to know every student, so we at 
the INDEX would like to introduce you to 
the administration and a few selected fac- 
ulty (chosen by student and departmental 
recommendations). Now you'll know who 
to smile at on campus, and when you see 
one of the administrators in Stop&Shop, 
it's your turn to introduce yourself.

When I took office, the University was on 
the upswing of a dramatic expansion in both 
enrollment and facilities. Having tripled in 
size in a decade, the Amherst campus had 
just added another 1,500 new students and 
100 new faculty members. Its Campus Cen- 
ter was dedicated within a few months of my 
appointment. The new twenty-eight story li- 
brary was under construction; the site for 
the Fine Arts Center was cleared; the sec- 
ond phase of the Graduate Research Cen- 
ter was on the drawing boards. With 20,500 
students already enrolled, a Faculty Senate 
foresaw a campus enrollment of 35,000 stu- 
dents or more by 1980. 

In its optimistic expansion, the University 
of Massachusetts was no different than many 
other public and private institutions across 
the country. The number of students en- 
rolled within the Commonwealth increased 
from 113,00 to 300,000 during the 1960s 
Fifteen new community colleges were 
established. The combined enrollment of the 
University and the state colleges grew by 
50,000. Even so, the Board of Higher Edu- 
cation in 1968 had projected a shortage of 
113,000 student places by 1980, and as- 
signed to UMass a 50,000 student total by 
the end of the decade. 

During the past seven years, the ambi- 
tious initiatives visible in 1970 have been 
brought to a substantial completion. In Octo- 
ber, 1973, the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School moved into its polished gran- 
ite building beside Lake Quinsigamond. In 
January, 1974, the new Harbor Campus — 
the largest single construction project ever 
undertaken by the state — opened its doors 
to students. At Amherst, in October, 1975, 
during the inaugural concert at the new Fine 
Arts Center, the Trustees awarded Boston 
Symphony Orchestra conductor Seiji Ozawa 
an honorary degree. In January, 1976, the 
Teaching Hospital admitted its first patients 

and the arduous and exciting process of 
opening new services and new beds began. 
Meanwhile, the University-wide student 
total grew from 24,900 in 1970 to 30,500 in 
1973 and to almost 34,000 this past Sep- 
tember (1977). 

. Strong comprehensive professional 
planning and budgeting, careful delineation 
of roles and missions, a clear separation of 
authority from that of general state adminis- 
tration priorities, and the safeguarding of 
operational autonomy are absolute prereq- 
uisites in the years ahead. The most able and 
distinguished of faculties, the most talented 
and motivated of students, the best adminis- 
trators, the most cohesive and policy-orient- 
ed trustees cannot effectively carry out their 
respective roles amid the frustrations and 
conflicts which our present disarray pro- 

The University: Retrospect & Prospect 

Robert Wood, President 

December 1977 

When Chairman Healey telephoned me 
from Worcester at the time of your Novem- 
ber meeting to inquire whether I would ac- 
cept this appointment, I asked him if the 
Trustees wanted a caretaker for the interim 
period or someone who would serve as 
President in fact as well as in name. Chair- 
man Healey told me it was his impression 
the Trustees did not want a nominal chief 
executive pro tern, but a person who would 

administer strongly and help the Board 
move actively on matters which should not 
wait for the coming of a new long-term Presi- 
dent. Given that assurance — confirmed by 
later statements of other Trustees — I ac- 
cepted the appointment. I believe it's impor- 
tant for me to make it clear why I did so. 

I had in no personal or other way desired 
or sought the position you decided to ask me 
to take. Having served for five years as the 
founding President of a college of which I am 
proud, I had no longing for status or position 
which I aspired to satisfy as an administra- 
tive officer of this University. I was happy 
teaching in the excellent Political Science 
Department of our Boston campus and con- 
ducting my research on the General court. 

The reason I accepted the Presidency on 
an interim basis was two-fold and very sim- 
ple. First, I believed there was a real need 
for a chief executive to serve the University 
in an active, deeply committed mode during 
the transition, interim period, and — if you 
can forgive an old-fashioned view of things 
— I saw it as my duty to accept the responsi- 
bility as it was defined. Second, I accepted 
because I understood that the Board was 
prepared, indeed eager, to go forward with 
certain important current tasks essential for 
the University's welfare. 

It is within this context that I will seek to 
serve you as an active — not passive — 
interim President. To be effective in the Uni- 
versity's interest, my service will not only 
need the best that I can bring to it, with my 
associates' help, but it will also need your 
support in addition to your wise counsel and 
your steady guidance 

Remarks to the Board of Trustees 

The University of Massachusetts 


Franklin Patterson, President 

January 11, 1978 


Chancellor Sromcry 

Randolph Bromery 

"I came to UMass to teach and conduct 
research in geophysics in the geology de- 
partment. I had been with the Federal Gov- 
ernment for twenty years, and found that 1 
was drifting further and further away from 
science and moving nearer and nearer to 

"It's really interesting how I got here. I 
was originally being recruited by Franklin 
and Marshall Colleges, and was in negotia- 
tions with Boston College. I was invited to 
come to the University of Massachusetts to 
give a talk at a geology conference, and was 
invited at that time to come and teach. My 
full-time teaching lasted about a year, and 1 
was then appointed Department Chairman 
and a year later called into the administra- 
tion by former Chancellor Oswald Tippo to 
reorganize and head up the Office of Stu- 
dent Affairs. We had an implied understand- 
ing that I would administer this office for a 
couple of years and then return to teaching. 
But Chancellor Tippo then resigned, and I 
was offered the Acting Chancellorship by 
President Wood and the Board of Trustees, 
which was a complete suprise to me; howev- 
er, I accepted. This October I will start my 
eighth year as Chancellor, which is a rela- 
tively long tenure, twice the average "life" 
of my contemporary University Chancellors 
or Presidents. 

"What is happening now-a-days is that the 
Presidents and Chancellors have consider- 
ably more responsibility and less and less 
delegated authority to act. The role of the 
Board of Trustees has changed significantly 
here and throughout the country. Boards 
used to perceive their role as stewards of 
their respective institutions. Today, Boards 
are becoming more and more involved in the 
institution's day to day management deci- 
sions. In general, this forces the Chancellor 
or President to watch the decision making 
process like a spectator at a tennis match. 
The Board and the students or faculty bat 

the ball back and forth, a decision is 
reached and handed to the administra- 
tor to implement. 

"The perception of my job of Chan- 
cellor at this University is still relative- 
ly provincial. People feel that 1 should 
stay closeted in my Whitmore office 
each and every day. They believe that 
the University will cease to function if 
I'm not physically present. 1 have 
served on several National Academy 
of Science committees, primarily be- 
cause I feel it important that the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts be represented on 
those national committees. I'm chairman of 
the Department of Commerce Sea Grant 
Review Committee, an important committee 
that conducts oversight function for all sea 
grant colleges and sea grant programs in the 
United States. 

"I sit on the Board of Directors of Exxon 
and serve as a member of the Board's Com- 
mittee on Contributions, which approves the 
allocation of nearly 30 million dollars for 
social and educational programs each year. 
Certainly, I'm not going to submit a proposal 
to the committee; however, if a proposal 
comes from this institution, the fact that I'm 
sitting on the committee is certainly not go- 
ing to hurt it. I see that my role at Exxon is of 
extreme importance to the company, the 
stockholders, and the University of Massa- 

"I wasn't really suprised when I was not 
chosen to be President of the University. 
Contrary to what people believe, it was 
quite an agonizing decision for me to put my 
name in as a candidate, because I realized 
fully the inherent negative dynamics of being 
an internal candidate. Secondly, I had to 
agonize over whether I really wanted to 
make another three to five year commit- 
ment to an administrative position at this 
University. I had watched the Board of 
Trustees change rapidly in composition. I 
looked at all the other internal and external 
issues and I figured that the University need- 
ed a transition President who understood 
the internal complexities of the institution 
and it's history. 

A 'typical' day for me starts with my 
waking up at 6:00 a.m., and arriving at the 
office at 8:00 a.m. Then I start with my list 
of appointments. The morning mail comes in 
at 10:00 a.m. the mail is logged and 

then it is sorted: informational items, adverti- 
sements and less important items; and the 
"red folder" are those items that 1 have to 

take action on, things that I have to respond 
to myself personally or directly. Abput 700 
pieces of mail come across my desk each 
week, and of that 700 pieces about 200 
require action to be taken by me. 

"I rarely have a lunch that isn't of a busi- 
ness nature. A couple of times a month I 
may be able to go up to my house at lunch 
time, and my wife and I usually have this one 
brief moment to talk I return to the 

office for more appointments until 5:00. Be- 
tween 5:00 and 6:30, I read the mail. I read 
the "action" first, then I organize it or priori- 
tize it so that I can take it home to work on. 
Somewhere around 7:00 (that is if I don't 
have a dinner to go to or some other func- 
tion to attend, which during the academic 
year averages about three times a week) I go 
home to eat dinner, but the day is usually so 
hectic that I can't sit down really to eat until 
eight or eight-thirty at night. If I were a 
drinking person I'd probably have several 
drinks before dinner, but that's not going to 
help because after dinner I still have more 
office work to do. In that hour before dinner 
I sometimes help my thirteen year old with 
his math homework, and talk to my seven- 
teen year old concerning whatever he has 
that's a problem for him. After dinner I go to 
my office at the house, initiate or receive 
telephone calls, and then continue working 
on my mail until 11:00 p.m. By then I gener- 
ally find that I can't go straight to bed be- 
cause my adrenalin flow is too high, I am 
wide awake. So I sit around and talk or read 
myself to sleep. It is during this time that I 
usually try to keep up with my geology and 
geophysics by reading my journals. 

"I do all of the grocery shopping for the 
family. I go to Stop & Shop on Saturday 
mornings. Not only is it therapeutic because 
it is so different from my normal weekday 
routine, but in addition I get to meet a lot of 
people. I can talk to people over vegetables 
or the meat counters. It's where I hear things 
and get feedback from campus that I can't 
get in any other way or place. I meet stu- 
dents, faculty members, physical plant peo- 
ple; in fact, one of the neat things about the 
market is that it is the only time when these 
conversations may include "You've done a 
good job." That makes my week. I can then 
go back to my required social function on 
Saturday night, Sunday afternoon, the week- 
end decisions, and return to the office on 
Monday morning thinking that maybe it is 
worthwhile after all."

index: // "turbulent" is an accurate 
description of campus life in the 1 960s, how 
would you characterize the 1970s? 

McBee: The 70s in higher education might 
be termed a return to reality. Included might 
be the realization that: no university can be 
all things to all people; the growth of the 60s 
is waning; the increasing financial support no 
longer flows automatically; higher education 
institutions must also be accountable; a 
degree is no longer synonymous with a job; 
the members of the higher education 
community cannot solve the problems of the 
world; the credibility of higher education 
with the public is not assured 

index: Do you feel that the Vietnam and 
Watergate eras have had an adverse or 
positive effect on education as a whole? 
Does increasing cynicism seem to follow 
these events? And if so, what is the effect? 

Allen: These events had an adverse effect 
on the education system. (As educators) we 
saw a deterioration in the quality of thought, 
and the use of slogans as substitutions for 

Woodbury: In the long run, Vietnam and 
Watergate probably had a healthy impact 
upon the American consciousness. The 
historical sense of omnipotence and 
"goodness" deserve a healthy redress. The 
arrogance of power and righteousness is not 
a healthy aspect of any nation's national 
character. The experience of Vietnam and 
Watergate, while breeders of cynicism, 
made us more conscious of both our 
limitations and our flaws. 

index: It has been said that due to a stron- 
ger student influence on curriculum there 
has been a shift away from the fundamental 
skills in education. Do you feel that Har- 
vard's move back to core requirements is 
indicative of a return to fundamentals? 

McBee: Curricular requirements periodical- 
ly experience cycles of emphases with re- 
gard to fundamentals. Regardless of these 
shifts, the fundamental objective of a univer- 
sity is the growth, as human beings, of all 
who participate in its processes. Most institu- 
tions of higher learning are dedicated to the 
total development of the individual student. 
This means providing the opportunity for 
students to gain the skills and knowledge 
required for a successful and satisfying ca- 
reer, while at the same time maintaining a 
dedication to the concept of a liberal educa- 
tion, enabling people to achieve a clearer 
understanding of themselves and their place 
in society and their relationships with fellow 
human beings. 

index: Are students more, or less, career 
oriented now than a decade ago? In other 
words, is there a stronger emphasis on "get- 
ting a job" rather than just being educated? 

Woodbury: I suspect that students have 
always been concerned about their careers 
after graduation, but that concern becomes 
intensified when market conditions are less 
favorable. For the first time since the 1930s 
college graduates arc not assured of the kind 
of favorable job market that was true for 
three decades. But if most students arc con- 
cerned about jobs, I think they are also con- 
cerned about many other aspects of living 
and thinking. 

index: Do you feel that budget constraints 
have had an adverse effect on the quality of 
education at UMass? How has it affected the 
students? Faculty? 

Allen: The budget cuts have been felt 
throughout this campus. The situation has 
impaired faculty moral; created higher stu- 
dent-faculty ratios in the classrooms; and a 
deterioration of equipment. Overall there 
has been a "watering of the soup". 

index: What is the academic reputation of 
UMass/Amherst with prospective employ- 
ers and professional schools? How does this 
reputation compare with other state univer- 
sities? Is this reputation improving? 

Woodbury: The reputation of the Universi- 
ty of Massachusetts is directly related to the 
distance of the observer from Boston. The 
University is extremely highly regarded out- 
side the state of Massachusetts. Some of this 
reputation has begun to seep into Massachu- 
setts. Several years ago Professor David 
Reissman, the distinguished Harvard profes- 
sor, observed that if UMass/Amherst was 
located in any other state it would be regard- 
ed as one of the superior institutions in the 
United States. The fact that it is located in 
Massachusetts under the shadow of Har- 
vard, MIT, and other private institutions has 
given it the reputation within the Common- 
wealth that bears no relationship to its true 
quality. But I do think that image is chang- 

Interviews done by Ernest Corrigan 


William Field 

William Tunis 

Teacher, counselor, administrator — Wil- 
liam Field is all these, and more too. 

Field is the Dean of Students at UMass, 
and the only one the University has ever 

Back in the 60s, when UMass was growing 
by leaps and bounds, there were seperate 
deans for men and women. But University 
President John Lederle wanted someone 
who could handle everything in student af- 
fairs. So Lederle turned to Field, who at the 
time was an assistant professor of psycholo- 
gy. Before that Field had been the director 
of guidance. 

Although he never intended to be an ad- 
ministrator (he started off planning to be a 
secondary school science teacher). Field 
took the job as Dean of Students in 1961 
because he felt he had a lot of skills which 
were useful to the University during its peri- 
od of tremendous growth. He also wanted 
there to be some way for people to get used 
to an expanding campus. 

As Decin of Students, Field does "any- 
thing that doesn't get done by the bureauc- 
racy of the University." This can include 
discipline cases, human relations training, 
and handling various other student crisiscs. 
"You can't categorize things, though," said 
Field. "Students come in here asking about 
anything such as what to do if they got their 
car towed, or if they got a bad roommate." 

Field actually has a dual role, as Dean of 
Students and as a worker in Student Affairs. 
"It's a coordinating job," he said. 

Some of the other things Field has done 
since coming to the University in 1951 in- 
clude starting the summer counseling pro- 
gram for incoming students, which was the 
first such program in the East, and establish- 
ing the University Health Services. When he 
became Dean of Students, the University 
had only two physicians for the entire stu- 
dent body. "The Health Service we have 
now has turned out to be one of the best in 

the country." 

One of his current projects is trying to get 
rid of the University's mandatory housing 
requirement and make it a voluntary one. 

Field hasn't left teaching entirely, either. 
He still works with graduate students, par- 
ticularly in the School of Education. "1 like 
to keep in contact with students," he said. 
"It's important to be accessible." Field also 
feels that teaching has given him more per- 
spective about why things operate the way 
they do at the University. 

Field jokingly refers to himself as the 
"resident historian" of the University, but 
with good reason. In the 27 years here since 
completing his studies at Temple and at the 
University of Maryland, Field has seen an 
incredible amount of change. In fact, the 
building where he works now (Whitmore) 
used to be the old football field. 

When he arrived in the 50's, UMass was 
predominantly attended by males, most of 
whom were veterans and studying arts and 
sciences. Women had higher standards for 
admission, and there were curfews at night. 

All that changed in the 60s however, with 
the arrival of the students from the years of 
the baby boom. The University opened up 
three or four new dorms a year, and there 
was incredible pressure to get new buildings 
built. "You couldn't look around and not see 
building," Field recalled. The school grew by 
1300 students a year and departments were 
continually doubling in size and new ones 
were being added every year. The percent- 
age of women at the University went from 
30 to 48, thanks to Field, and dorms went 

Both the students and faculty have 
changed here, said Field. "The whole Uni- 
versity has became more open and casual. 
It's a more interesting place, and fun to work 
in, too. 

"The smallness of the University used to 
restrict things. Students were less inclined to 

pursue specialties. Changing the University 
has made it possible for students to change." 
Field said the University should stay close to 
the size it is now, however. 

— Ellen Davis 

William Tunis has been the Dean of 
Admission and Records at UMass since 
1963. But like many others who have 
decided to try something different after 
working in the same job for a while, 1978 
marks the end of his fifteen year career in 
that position. But Dean Tunis will not be 
leaving UMass, he will just be crossing the 
campus to fulfill his new duties. Now he 
will return to teaching and counseling stu- 
dents in the College of Food and Natural 
Resources, where he is a tenured profes- 
sor of entomology. "I've put in fifteen 
years as Dean of Admissions and I'm es- 
sentially making a mid-life career 
change," he said. 

Dean Tunis estimated that he had ad- 
mitted some 75,000 students to the Uni- 
versity since he became Dean of Admis- 
sions. In those days, he said, the Universi- 
ty had such a flood of applicants that he 
was jokingly called "Dean of Rejections" 
by a colleague. 

The flood of applications to colleges 
and universities has since diminished, but 
Dean Tunis does not foresee "any great 
problem in the future" maintaining enroll- 
ment at UMass. The University will con- 
tinue to attract good students, he predict- 
ed, because of the connection it has with 
the Five Colleges. 

Looking back on his career as Dean of 
Admissions, Dean Tunis said, "It has been 
a fun thing, working with a lot of nice 
people. It has been a very rewarding ex- 
perience. I hope in some small way I have 
contributed to the University".

Dean Whaley 

Dean Piedmont 

Dean Darity 


Mario D. Fantini accepted a challenge 
when he became Dean of tlie School of 

Education in January 1977: "Could I come 
and work our way through a very difficult 
transitional period, keeping what's good 
about the school and being self-corrective at 
the same time?" After a year of review and 
reorganization, Fantini said he is "reason- 
ably optimistic" that that is being done. 

The school had to clarify its mission as a 
graduate-oriented professional school, dedi- 
cated to updating the skills of teachers al- 
ready in the field, Fantini said. There is 
clearly an emphasis on graduate instruction, 
with 1,158 graduate students and 651 un- 
dergraduates enrolled in the fall of 1977. 
Five years ago when the emphasis was on 
"pre-servicc" training, there were about 
1,800 undergraduates. 

The school's program was reorganized 
from five clusters to three divisions, an "ex- 
tremely important" one being Human Ser- 
vices, or the concept of dealing with people 
"outside the four walls of the school. This is 
an area that in the next couple of decades 
will receive increasing attention, and to have 
it done within a professional school, i think, 
is important." 

When students graduating from UMass in 
1978 were finishing high school, guidance 
counselors cautioned them about going into 
engineering because of the glut of engineers 
on the job market. But some just wouldn't 
listen, and according to Russcl C. Jones, 
Dean of the School of Engineering, it's 
lucky for those that didn't. "Our students 
are currently getting multiple offers, three 
offers, four offers, per person. Engineering 
is a cyclic field; we very much follow the 
economy and when the economy is up, job 
offers are up, and lots of students flock in to 
us. That's where we are right now. We hap- 

pen to be having a heyday for the past few 
years, and my guess is it will last for some 
years yet to come." 

Jones, in his first year at UMass, has con- 
centrated on the internal organization of the 
school, which has five departments, and he 
will continue to do so before emphasizing 
contacts with state and national industries 
and agencies. "My perception as I came 
here was that I should spend more of my 
time inside to get the school functioning well 
and get the administrative systems work- 

Ross S. Whaley, Dean of the College 
of Food and Natural Resources, believes 
the college in 1978 reflects the interest in 
the environment and the "back to the land" 
movement prevalent since the late 60s. "It's 
politically a good time for us. The general 
citizenry is concerned about environmental 
problems." That concern, he said, has 
brought with it a change in the student de- 

The time when the school was almost ex- 
clusively filled with the sons and daughters 
of farmers has passed. "The population has 
changed remarkably. Our population today 
is basically urban students who want to 

get involved, not just in the social activism 
realm, that too, but also in the realm of 'I 
want to devote my life, in a professional 
sense, to the saving of the environment," 
said Whaley. 

Another trend in the college, Whaley said, 
is the rising percentage of women enrolled in 
its programs. About half the students in 
Landscape Architecture and Regional Plan- 
ning are women, he said, as are at least 40% 
of the students in the departments of Forest- 
ry and Veterinary and Animal Sciences. 

Eugene B. Piedmont, Acting Dean of 
the Graduate School, said the school in 
1978 is seeking recognition as Massachu- 
sett's primary site for graduate instruction. 
"We feel very strongly on this campus, 
knowing what the quality of faculty is, that 

this is the major place for the state as a 
whole in public education where graduate 
work and research ought to be done," Pied- 
mont said. 

Piedmont came to UMass in 1965 as a 
Professor of Sociology and was appointed 
Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the 
Graduate School in 1972. As acting Dean he 
is responsible for monitoring the quality of 
the about fifty-eight graduate programs, and 
for developing and implementing research 
on campus. 

The school is trying to increase the non- 
state, research monies coming in. Piedmont 
said. "Right now, it's about $12 to $13 bil- 
lion, which isn't an awful lot for a University 
of this size." 

William Darity has been Dean of the 
University's youngest school — the School 
of Health Sciences — since its inception 
in 1973. The school comprises three divi- 
sions: Nursing, Public Health, and Communi- 
cation Disorders. 

The program at UMass is, in some as- 
pects, unique. "Our school has a much more 
rigid curriculum," Darity said. For example, 
it requires that students concentrate a lot 
more in quantitative sciences. "Students in 
Public Health particularly have to do an em- 
pirical research thesis, and also field training. 
Other schools don't require these." 

Nursing was an independent program 
when it combined to form the School of 
Health Sciences five years ago. Communica- 
tion Disorders left the Communication stud- 
ies program to join the school in 1974. 

Nursing, however, might be going inde- 
pendent again. Nursing is clinically oriented 
"much more kin to medicine than the other 
two divisions in the school" and by becoming 
an independent school would be better able 
to recruit faculty, improve its affiliation with 
the UMass-Worcester medical school, and 
overall become a better program. 

Richard W. Noland became Acting 
Dean of the School of Humanities and

Fine Arts in February of 1978. He was 
appointed by the Acting Provost, and an 
Acting Chairperson was appointed to fill the 
vacancy Noland left as head of the English 
Department. At a time when there is an 
Acting President and a number of Acting 
Deans, the circumstances surrounding No- 
land's appointment are not that unusual. 
"Actually, that's something that badly needs 
settling around this campus. This 'acting' 
situation needs to be clarified," Noland said. 

But until it is, he will carry on some of the 
policies of his predecessor, and now Acting 
Provost, Jeremiah M. Allen. "There are 
some things he had wanted, and which I 
would want in terms of making sure that the 
fine arts element is well developed," said 

The theatre, music, and studio arts de- 
partments need to be supported and further 
developed, Noland suggested. "This ought 
to be a fine arts center which is nationally 
known and has high quality performances, 
and should benefit the entire western part of 
the state." 

students. It's not only reflected in the course 
work, but in the doors it opens for students, 
once they graduate." 

Seymour Shapiro, Dean of the 
School of Natural Sciences and Math, 

has been active in the administration of the 
College of Arts and Sciences since 1964, 
and was its last Dean before the College split 
into three schools. "I developed the propos- 
al, with a lot of faculty help, for the separa- 
tion," said Shapiro. "Students didn't see 
very much change, but we now have three 
deans and the workload is more manage- 

Two programs have added to the attracti- 
veness of the school since the early 70s, and 
have grown into "superb" departments — 
Computer and Information Science (COINS) 
and Polymer Science and Engineering. The 
possibility of a graduate program in neuro- 
science is also being explored, Shapiro said. 

"In the past ten years the recognition that 
has come to every one of our departments 
has been enormous. And there's a very di- 
rect payoff on this to the undergraduate 

David C. Bischoff left Whitmore Ad- 
ministration Building in 1978 to spend all his 
time in the Boyden Athletic Building as 
Dean of the School of Physical Educa- 
tion. In late January, he handed in his resig- 
nation as Associate Provost, a position he 
held for seven years, and was dean for six of 
those years. "I find myself having a very 
great deal to do when I'm down here and 
wonder how I was able to handle both 
(jobs)," Bischoff said, "but I'm sure that I 
gave this job short shrift." 

An issue he said that needs much atten- 
tion is the equality of men's and women's 
sports. "All of a sudden we have a group 
who legitimately need and want high level 
athletic experiences. The goal is not wom- 
en's sports at the expense of men's sports, 
but that women have an equal chance for 

Bischoff maintained that because of the 
nature of the departments in the school — 
Athletics, Exercise Science, Professional 
Education in Physical Education, and Sports 
Studies — it is a "fun" place to be. "I think 
people in Physical Education and Athletics 
tend to be very happy and they can see 
measurably what they've done." 

"The school doesn't see itself as an eight 
to five operation, five days a week," he said, 
adding that a major mission of the school is 
to keep its facilities open for participatory 
athletic use for the various intramural and 
instructional programs. 

meaning that we've had to limit the number 
of freshman and the number of transfer stu- 
dents that can get into this school, because 
the numbers were going through the roof 
and the quality of the programs was going to 

Wolf, who was the school's Associate 
Dean for two years, before George S. 
Odiorne resigned in 1977 said that he felt 
the school should reach out more, " in 
effect work out means of cooperating with 
units like engineering, education, sports ad- 
ministration, the area of arts management 
because I think the school that has an 
administrative input should be talking to 
people other than business organizations 
about management, about organization, 
about lots of things that students in these 
other areas need." 

For the School of Business Administra- 
tion there has been no problem getting stu- 
dents into classes. The problem has been 
keeping them out, according to Jack S. 
Wolf, Acting Dean of the school since 
September of 1977. "We're trying to ac- 
commodate as many students as we can, 
even though the pressures are with us," he 
said. "We've been managing the enrollment. 

There has been much analysis during the 
1970s about the shift in student enrollment 
away from the arts and social sciences and 
toward the vocationally oriented schools. 
And while the figures certainly support the 
trend, it may be a mistake to assume that 
students are losing interest in the liberal arts. 
"It's much too simple, much too catchy a 
phrase to say students are now vocationally 
oriented," said T. O. Wilkinson, Dean of 
the School of Social and Behavioral 
Sciences. "This really does our undergrad- 
uates a disservice — to say that everyone 
wants to be either a CPA or an engineer; 
that nobody wants to read Shakespeare any- 
more;that nobody wants to study psychology 
anymore. That's simply not true. What is 
true is that in the job market out there, 
undergraduates, I think, are much more 
keenly sensitive to the fact that you have to 
be able to offer some skills in order to get a 

Flexibility is important, according to Wil- 
kinson. "You can still, for example be inter- 
ested in anthrolopolgy, psychology, or politi- 
cal science but you've got to surround that 
interest with some specific skills and as much 
breadth as you can get."

"The only way to understand anything in 
the world is to understand it historically. 
Things that exist now are a result of a pro- 
cess that began sometime in the past, and in 
order to begin to understand them, one has 
to understand the process and alternatives 
that people have had in the past." 

This belief system is prosposed by Profes- 
sor John Bracey, Chairman of the Afro- 
American Studies Department. Professor 
Bracey has been studying history since his 
undergraduate days at Howard University 
and through his graduate work at North- 
western, and teaches it at UMass. Some of 
the courses which he teaches are Revolution 
in the Third World, the Black Church, and 
Black Sociological Thought. 

In his courses, Professor Bracey attempts 
to make his students do a lot more than read 
— he makes them think. "What most stu- 
dents can't do today is analyze what they 
read. In the course I teach on revolution, I 
spend half the time discussing what a revolu- 
tion really is." 

About 30% of the students taking Afro- 
Am courses are white; Professor Bracey be- 
lieves that this is one way in which racial 
tension might be diminished on campus, be- 
cause "given the situation in the world to- 
day, I think that the white Americans need 
to know as much as possible about other 
people, because the majority of the world is 
other people. The history of America is not 
the whole history of the world." 

In addition to his duties as Professor and 
Chairman, Professor Bracey is on the Nomi- 
nating Board of American Historians and is 
Vice-President of Internal Affairs for the 
Massachusetts Society of Professors.

When Murray Krim, a New York psychol- 
ogist who specializes in neurotic teachers, 
was interviewed by New York Magazine, 
he said that "many teachers experience an- 
guish over the constant give, give, give re- 
quired from them." Another source of anxi- 
ety among Krim's clients is "the lack of op- 
portunities to express themselves creatively 
on the job." But for at least one professor, 
UMass does not harbor any of these restric- 
tions. Fern Johnson has been a professor in 
the Communication Studies Department for 
four years, but does not exhibit any signs of 
stress. "Teaching is very important to me; I 
love to teach. I also enjoy my studies, but 
the stimulation I get from teaching gets me 
going on other things. It's probably the most 
fulfilling thing I do." 

Fern's students said that they enjoy her 
classes because she appreciates their individ- 
uality and takes a real interest in their opin- 
ions. "I like to establish a pretty personal 
atmosphere in my classes, and I like to know 
who my students are — I don't like to create 
distance between myself and my students. 

"If I feel any frustration on the job, it's not 
just as a teacher, but it's also as a faculty 
member — with the meetings and other 
work I have, I just have no free time. But if I 
ever think of alternatives to teaching, like 
going into business, they just aren't that ex- 
citing. Teaching provides an infinite amount 
of diversity. I know that every three and a 
half months I'll be seeing a whole new set of 
people, with a new set of challenges. I doubt 
I would ever want to leave the profession,"

"As a professor of literature, I would 
most like to convey the joy of learning. Not 
joy in the over-simple, superficial sense. 
Rather the joy that comes from the realiza- 
tion of emotional and intellectual potential- 
ity. The joy derived from sensitizing eyes 
that ccin see, ears that hear, and a respon- 
sive mind capable of sustained attention. 
The joy of moving from bewilderment or 
boredom or fatigue to curiosity, confidence, 
and accomplishment." This is how Professor 
John Hicks conceives his role as an instruc- 
tor in the English Department. Professor 
Hicks shares his love of literature not only in 
the classroom, but at The Massachusetts 
Review, a fine arts magazine published on 
this ccimpus. He has been one of its editors 
since 1960. 

Professor Hicks did his undergraduate 
work at Middlebury College in Vermont, and 
his graduate work at Harvard and Boston 
University. Before coming to UMass, he 
taught at Tufts and Wesleyan. He noted that 
"On the basis of my specific experience, I 
would say that students at private colleges 
are often more confident — about them- 
selves personally, and about their institu- 
tions. Students at UMass, for example, often 
suffer enormous inferiority complexes about 
themselves and the university. Life for pub- 
lic school students is simply very often more 
uncertain, less secure, less coherent than it is 
for their counterparts in private institutions. 
And the general public reputation of UMass 
still lags considerably behind the quality it 
has actually achieved . But there is real- 
ly much to be proud of here. I hope for a 
more intensely growing sense of common 
purpose cind self-respect among faculty, stu- 
dents, and administration. It is really time for

Did you ever wonder what UMass looked 
like 11,000 years ago? Joseph Hartshorn 
could tell you. In fact, he could tell you what 
ciny part of Massachusetts looked like during 
the Ice Age. 

Hartshorn is a glacial morphologist. He 
has been teaching glacicil geology here since 
1967 as a professor in the Department of 
Geology and Geography. Before coming 
here. Hartshorn worked with the U.S. Geo- 
logical Survey in Boston for seventeen years 
after completing his studies at Harvard. 
While working with the Survey, Hartshorn 
met a friend who also came here, but "went 
a lot further. His name is Chancellor Bro- 
mery," he said. 

Hartshorn has also had a distinguished 
career at the University. He served as head 
of the Department of Geology and Geogra- 
phy from 1970 to 1977. His Geology 106 
course, Face of the Earth, attracts as many 
as 300 students a semester, and always re- 
ceives good evaulations. 

Hartshorn likes having students because 
he says they keep pushing him. "They all 
bring in new spirit and enthusiasm." 

Some of the things his students have 
pushed him into are hang gliding and par- 

Hartshorn also likes his colleagues here, 
despite the fact that they keep teasing him 
about looking like a "sexy walrus." 

Hartshorn does more than just teach geol- 
ogy. He just finished a term as Chairman of 
the New England section of the Geological 
Society of America. Now he is a member of 
the Chcincellor's Committee on Equality of 
Scilaries for Women Professors and the Fac- 
ulty of Math and Natural Sciences Personnel 
Policy Committee.

John Lederle 

From 1960 to 1970, John Lederle served 
as the fifteenth president of the University of 
Massachusetts. During this time, he helped 
its progression from small (5,873) to large 
(19,367), from one campus to three, from 
adequacy to excellency, and from its first 
century to its second. 

Professor Lederle considers it a privilege 
to have been the University's President dur- 
ing such a dynamic and challenging period, 
but now at age sixty-five, he is back to doing 
what he wants — teach. "It was fun," re- 
flected Lederle, "but I got removed from 
students. I'm glad I'm back to dealing with 
ideas and youth. Students are our reason for 

Professor Lederle received his law degree 
and later his Ph.D. from Michigan, which he 
calls the "union card," and began teaching 
at Brown University. He soon got diverted 
into administration, and became Assistant 
Dean there. Then he was invited back to 
Michigan, where he rose to directorship of 
their Institute of Public Administration. 

From Michigan, he got the offer to be- 
come president here, which doesn't happen 
to outsiders often. 

Lederle still uses his legal knowledge since 
leaving regular practice, however. He is an 
honorary member of the Michigan Municipal 
League and has worked on the campaign 
expenditure study committees for the Sen- 
ate and House. He's been in Who's Who 
since 1950. 

Lederle's record in public administration 
is equally impressive. He belongs to both the 
American Political Science Association and 
the American Society of Public Administra- 
tion. He has developed public administration 
programs in Manilla and Formosa.

Ronald Mannino 

What's the first image you think of when 
you see the words "Accounting Professor"? 
If it's Brooks Brothers suits and sharp pen- 
cils you may be right unless you know 
Ronald Mannino. 

Professor Mannino has taught manage- 
ment accounting courses at UMass for the 
last four years. "I teach a little different 
course material here at UMass. The majority 
of accounting programs arc directed to- 
wards careers in public accounting and I 
teach basically for careers in nonpublic ac- 
counting — the role of an accountant work- 
ing in an organization if he's not going to be 

an auditor." 

Mannino said he became a professor be- 
cause "you can do two things when you 
teach that you can't do in other jobs. You 
can be a professional but at the same time 
you can have fun by dealing with people that 
aren't professional." 

One of the nicest things that has hap- 
pened to him while he has been at UMass 
was at Las Vegas Night when someone en- 
tered his pictured in the "cutest" contest, 
where voters cast their votes for a penny a 
piece. Mannino remembers that he was run- 
ning against a dog, a male majorette, and 
four women. "I think I got something like 
$40 in pennies, which is very good and 

all for charity," joked Mannino. 

In his courses, he tries to instill in his 
students his educational philosophy - "an 
accountant has to be more than an accoun- 
tant to be effective in a business situation. 
You have to know a little about the business 
you are in." 

Reflecting upon the negative stereotype 
of accountants, Mannino remarks, "Every 
accountant that I know is an interesting per- 
son I don't know that many accountants

Masha Rudman 

Masha Rudman works full time as a moth- 
er of three as well as an associate professor 
in the school of education at UMass. She 
was, in fact, the sole supporter of her family 
for eight years while her husband finished his 

Rudman has won numerous awards in her 
twenty five years as an educator including 
the Distinguished Teacher Award in 1972. 
She was also included in this year's World 
Who's Who of Women in Education. 

Rudman graduated from Hunter College 
in New York in 1953 and went to work as a 
teacher in the New York City school system. 
She worked with culturally disadvantaged, 
non-English speaking, and emotionally dis- 
trubed children. While working, she got her 
master's degree, also from Hunter College, 
in 1957. 

She came to UMass in 1966 to review 
children's books for WFCR, a position she 
held for the next four years. Rudman also 
headed a summer program for disadvan- 
taged high school students and founded the 
Learning Theater at the School of Educa- 
tion. She got her Ph.D. in 1970 from UMass. 

A lot of the credit for her success goes to 
her parents according to Rudman. "My par- 
ents never contradicted a thought. We were 
brought up to be open and honest. They had 
a terrific impact on my life." 

Besides teaching courses in subjects like 
curriculum construction, reading, language 
arts, and open education, Rudman is co- 
director of the Integrated Day Program 
which is a preservice/inservice teacher edu- 
cation program and a consultant to depart- 
ments of education and schools across the 
country. She also edits IN Touch, a maga- 
zine devoted to open education.

Ernest Lindsey 

Ernest Lindscy's memories of twenty-nine 
years at UMass range from an old garage 
through three years as Dean of Engineering 
to his present work in waste treatment. "I 
first came here in 1949 to help start the 
department. There were just two professors 
and twenty students in the department," 
Lindsey remembered. 

After getting a bachelor's degree from 
Georgia Tech and a Ph.D. from Yale, Lind- 
sey went to work for an oil company for a 
couple of years. **I went back to Yale to do 
some research after that and then served in 
the Navy for two years." 

Lindsey has seen the department grow 
from twenty students to its present size of 
about 175. He also helped plan Goessman 
Lab, which the department moved into in 

In 1963, Lindsey became acting Dean of 
Engineering, 'it was a busy time. We were 
enlarging the school, adding new faculty, 
students, and buildings. Engineering East 
was opened back then." 

Lindsey said he enjoyed being Dean, but 
was happy to turn the job over to someone 
else in 1966 and get back to teaching and 
research. *i decided back then to specialize 
in waste treatment rather than finding new 
plastics for someone to crunch up." 

Lindsey said the biggest change in the 
department is the number of women. 
"About 20% of the students are women. 
Ten years ago we had maybe one or two 
women. It's a great increase." 

Lindsey isn't sure where the department 
ranks nationally but thinks it "compares 
pretty good with places like MIT, Wisconsin, 
Michigan, and Ohio State. We're certainly 
one of the best in the Northeast."

Ernest Buck 

Back when "UMass was a small, quiet 
university in a sleepy cow town", Ernest 
Buck, the Dean of the College of Agricul- 
ture, started teaching food science and nutri- 
tion, back in 1957. 

Despite a vigorous schedule, Buck makes 
sure he has time to enjoy his students. "I like 
to get to know my students personally. I 
tend to make friends out of most of them." 
Buck said he doesn^t "believe there is a 
generation gap because I admire the enthusi- 
asm and idealism of youth. I also enjoy work- 
ing with students because it keeps me 

Buck feels that "people in the United 
States tend to overeat. We eat too many 
fatty foods and foods that are too high in 
sugar when there should be a balance of 
these things." 

Another of his concerns is that nutrition 
courses aren't offered in high schools. "We 
need more nutritional education at an earlier 
age to stress the importance of eating intelli- 

Buck graduated from UConn in 1955 with 
a degree in Animal Industries. Two years 
later he had a Master*s degree from North 
Carolina State. He got his Ph.D. in Food 
Science and Technology from UMass in 

Teaching isn't the only thing that occupies 
his time at UMass. He is currently Director 
of Undergraduate Studies, Honors Coordin- 
ator, and Chairman of the Undergraduate 
Curriculum Committee of the Nutrition De-

Bruce Hoadley 

As a student, Bruce Hoadley always 
looked forward to the day when he would be 
totally away from schools. Even up until two 
months before completing his doctorate at 
Yale, whenver anyone asked him the inevita- 
ble question "What are you going to do 
when you graduate?", Hoadley would al- 
ways answer: "I don't know, anything but 

But UMass lured Hoadley away from oth- 
er prospects and for fifteen years now he 
has been teaching wood technology in the 
School of Forestry and Wildlife Manage- 
ment. "If there's anything that has helped 
me to be a better teacher, it is that I'll never 
forget being a student," said Hoadley. "I've 
never forgotten the kinds of feelings one 
gets on the other side of the desk." 

Hoadley has seen one of his classes. Prop- 
erties of Wood, grow from an enrollment of 
four students to one of thirty during this 
time. His other class, Wood Anatomy, has 
gone from twenty to 110. 

He has also noticed a definite change in 
the students here. "They have gone from a 
group of very obedient students who rou- 
tinely accepted the drudgery of higher edu- 
cation to a group of conscientious, hard- 
working, alert, increasingly mature students 
who are demanding a meaningful education 
and want to know not just what but why," he 

If Hoadley could leave one thought with 
his students, it would be that education 
doesn't stop here. "We can scarecely teach 
a person in 1978 what they are going to 
need for success in 1988," he said. "And 
education to me is learning to learn, A col- 
lege program isn't just something to get

Salvatore Dinardi 

During the summer of 1978, thirteen Pub- 
lic Health cind Environmental Science stu- 
dents surveyed children's recreational 
camps across the state. This group was 
headed by UMass professor Salvatore Din- 
ardi, who felt that this study should be done 
because "it is a serious kind of public health 
survey which the University should be in- 
volved in." 

The survey's aim was to determine the 
impact of a proposed sanitary code that 
would regulate all children's recreational 
camps in the state. Only two camps were 
ultimately closed, while the rest of the 490 
camps were notified of their minor viola- 
tions. "Recreational camps are big business 
in the state, and hopefully all camps will 
become a safe place for children, if they 
aren't already so," Dinardi said. 

Professor Dinardi did his undergraduate 
work at Hofstra University, and his graduate 
work at SUNY at Stony brook, transfering to 
UMass in 1967. He received his Ph.D. in 
Physiccd Chemistry here in 1971, and was 
appointed cin assistant professor that same 
year. He became an Associate Professor in 
1976, and is presently the Chairman of the 
Environmental Health Program. In addition, 
Dinardi teaches several courses, among 
which is "Toxic Substances in the Work 
Place", in which he aneilyzes chemicals com- 
monly found in the work environment. 

Dinardi's other full time job is taking care 
of his two children. After working on cam- 
pus all day, he goes home and cleans the 
house, and cooks, which is one of his favor- 
ite pastimes. He enjoys relaxing while listen- 
ing to quiet music, and in his infrequent 
spare time does woodworking.

Tunner Brosky 

Tunner Brosky of the Physical Education 
Department grew up in rural Pennsylvania 
in an almost improverishcd situation. "Be- 
cause I was poor I was an extremely lucky 
person." He played football in high school, 
went on to North Carolina for undergrad- 
uate work, and completed his graduate stud- 
ies at Pennsylvania State. 

Alternative education is a major concern 
of Professor Brosky's. His Outdoor Educa- 
tion course, or "Fun in the Woods" as he 
and the students call it, had its beginnings 
seven years ago when the first group went 
into the woods and built a ropes course. 
Brosky listened to the students that semes- 
ter. "They very plainly told me what we 
should be doing down there, how we should 
be doing it and why." Brosky went on to 
create something that satisfied the students 
needs as stated by the students. 

"Fun in the Woods" is personal growth 
and self-discovery. "It's healthy to learn 
about yourself. The course has that as a 
focal point." Using non-competitive games 
the students learn new methods of physical 
education teaching. 

Concerning alternative forms of educa- 
tion, "the alternative has to be offered as the 
other side of the coin. We purport to have 
people discover in a PE class talking about 
outdoor programs. Talking has got to be the 
least effective form of learning that I can 
think of." 

In addition to his Outdoor Education 
course, Professlor Brosky teaches a section 
of tennis/badminton, is responsible for the 
archery classes, and has a strong interest in 
deep sea fishing.

Inquiry ^roc^ram 

The Inquiry Program is a learning option 
for first and second year students. 

For some, tlie program is a small college 
within a large university, a place where they 
can get to know faculty and fellow students 
in personal as well as intellectual ways. At 
the same time it gives full access to all the 
resources of the University and four other 
colleges. For other students, the program is 
a means to pursue an interest in depth dur- 
ing the first two years without having to wait 
until becoming a junior to concentrate. 

The program offers students the opportu- 
nity to design and implement their own plan 
of study with the advice and consent of a 
faculty tutor. Each semester students negoti- 
ate an individual learning contract with their 
tutors. Because the program has its origins 
in a living-learning experiment, students are 
encouraged to include more than their for- 
mal academic work in the contracts. It is not 
unusual, for instance, to see contracts that 
include losing weight, learning to swim, vol- 
unteer work in local hospitals and schools, 
and reading lists above and beyond what is 
required by courses. At the end of each 
semester, students submit a self-evaulation 
to their tutors as the first step in planning the 
next semester. The contracts, self-evalua- 
tions, and tutor evaluations become the basis 
of the Learning Portfolio, what might be 
called an autobiography of two year's learn- 
ing and growth. 

Most students choose to substitute Modes 
of Inquiry seminars for the distribution re- 
quirements. The program is called Inquiry 
and the seminars, Modes of Inquiry to em- 
phasize that one of the basic goals of educa- 
tion is to provide students with the skills and 
understanding necessary to ask good ques- 
tions and then to answer them. The Modes 
Seminar option is one of the most popular 
features of the program because it reduces 
the number of required courses and thereby 
makes it possible for first and second year 
students to undertake semester-long pro- 
jects or to explore subjects in a new and 
challenging way. 

To complete the program and achieve 
junior standing, students submit their portfo- 
lios to a faculty evaluating committee and 
convene a Celebration-Evaluation. The Cele- 
bration-Evaluation is both a celebration and 
an evaluation. Each student is asked to syn- 
thesize the time spent, to summarize the 
work done, and to discuss how this work has 
prepared the student to move on. In a very 
real sense the Celebration-Evaluation is an 
opportunity for the student to show off: 
"These are my accomplishments; here are 
my enthusiasms and plans." At the same 


time the examiners evaluate the student's 
progress and certify that the work done is 
the equivalent of two years, or sixty credits. 
After completing the program students go 
on to a regular major, or create one through 

The Bachelor's Degree with Individual 
Concentration (BDIC) is a degree-granting 
program in which a student, with the guid- 
ance of a faculty sponsor, designs an under- 
graduate major by combining course work 
from two or more departments. Founded in 
1971, the program continues to encourage 
hundreds of students annually to use the 
academic resources of the University and 
nearby colleges to shape their educations to 
meet individual intellectual, personal, or vo- 
cational goals more effectively. To earn a 
B.A. or B.S. in BDIC, students must com- 
plete four semesters in the program. Their 
work each semester must reflect the interde- 
partmental nature of their program of study 
and draw from at least two different depart- 
ments a minimum of nine credits of courses 
each semester. 

Each student's program of study is devel- 
oped with the advice and consent of both the 
student's faculty sponsor and the BDIC fac- 
ulty supervisor. Because BDIC has, in effect, 
hundreds of different majors, students are 
required to confer with their faculty spon- 
sors regularly. Experience has shown that 
students familiar with BDIC guidelines who 
meet regularly with their sponsors have rela- 
tively little difficulty completing the pro- 
gram's requirements. For many students, 
designing a program of study and conferring 
with faculty can be a valuable part of their 
educational experience. 

For BDIC students, twenty-five per cent 
of the credits counted toward the major may 
be earned in special problems or indepen- 
dent study work. In addition to the usual 
independent reading projects, tutorials, or 
laboratory research, BDIC encourages stu- 
dents to use the independent study option 
for field work, internships, and other experi- 
ential learning, all of which must have an 
academic component. Many BDIC's include 
study abroad as part of their programs of 
study. Over the years, BDIC seniors have 
produced some outstandingly high quality 
senior honors projects in completing their 
undergraduate careers. 


Internships £ec^al Studies 

The Office of Internships is a special pro- 
gram within the University designed to facili- 
tate internship experiences for students. 
More specifically, our purpose is to make it 
possible for qualified students to spend a 
semester off campus in the working world, 
and to intergrate this experience with their 
academic program. 

By participating in a carefully constructed 
internship program, a student develops com- 
petency through actual "on the job" exper- 
ience while maintaining close contact with 
the faculty advisor and internship super- 
viser. Students enrolled in this program may 
earn from one to fifteen credits by fulfilling 
academic contracts arranged with a faculty 
sponsor. Both the educational and occupa- 
tional experience arc designed to be thor- 
oughly intergrated with the student's prior 
and future course of study at the University. 

Prior to the internship, each student ar- 
ranges cui academic contract with a faculty 
member that articulates the academic goals 
and objectives of the internship. In addition, 
the contract requires a description of a final 
project that will fulfill those academic goals. 
The intern, therefore, earns academic cred- 
its for demonstration of what was 
learned during the internship to a faculty 

The internship usually relates to the stu- 
dent's course of study at the University. A 
primary purpose of our program is to en- 
courage students to carefully integrate the 
theoretical knowledge they have studied in 
their classes with the practical knowledge 
they have learned during the internship. The 
student often returns to campus more deter- 
mined to select interesting and useful 
courses and also to be more involved in and 
demanding of these courses. 

Evaluation of the internship is accom- 
plished by all the participants, the student, a 
counselor from our program, the agency su- 
pervisor, and the faculty sponsor all work 
together to establish an on-going perspective 
about each student's field experience. 

The Office of Internships places most of 
its students in eastern and western Massa- 
chusetts and a significant number of students 
in New York City and Washington D.C., as 
well as throughout the States. In addition, 
a few students intern in some selected over- 
seas placements.

As the result of a pioneering effort by the 
Legal Studies Program at the University of 
Massachusetts, education in law is becoming 
less restricted to the ivy-covered walls of law 
schools in the U.S. Since 1973, undergrad- 
uate legal studies programs and depart- 
ments have sprung up in colleges and univer- 
sities across the country — from Berkeley to 
Boston University. And many more institu- 
tions are following the trend. 

Undergraduate legal studies education 
didn't just begin randomly. Studies by the 
Association of American Law Schools and 
the Carnegie Commission of Higher Educa- 
tion in 1971 and 1972 concluded that there 
was a lack of undergraduate law programs 
all over the U.S. Both institutions supported 
the establishment of programs to teach uni- 
versity students the law, rather than leaving 
legal education exclusively to law schools. 

These studies set a new trend in the U.S.; 
where legal study had been almost exclusive- 
ly geared towards future professionals, it 
was not putting law into the hands of the 

The UMass Legal Studies Program offers 
courses ranging from the technical legal re- 
search and writing, to a course in sex roles, 
law, and society. Students also learn through 
independent study, workshops and intern- 

What does a legal studies education do for 
the students? Students can expand their un- 
derstanding of the American legal system. 
Much of the knowledge is transferable to 
career and non-career goals. As a result, 
students may better understand how people 
in social groups, such as church groups, as- 
sume power. Students majoring in Legal 
Studies assume responsibility for developing 
their own course of study. Before becoming 
majors, they must submit a written state- 
ment explaining their proposed program of 
study, which includes courses they plan to 
take, possible work or projects, and the in- 
terests which tie their program together. 

Legal Studies graduates have left UMass 
to work in criminal law, consumer affairs, 
and one has become executive director of a 
American Civil Liberites Chapter. Three to 
four percent have gone to law school, while 
others have become para-legals.

For students interested in Honors course 
wori< here at UMass, there are three levels 
of involvement: the Commonwealth Schol- 
ar's Program, Honors courses, and Depart- 
mental Honors Programs. 

The Commonwealth Scholar's Program 
offers an alternative to the distribution re- 
quirement system to students of high aca- 
demic motivation and proven ability. Stu- 
dents who are accepted into this program 
have closer contact with their Academic 
Dean (the Honors Program Director), easier 
access to personal and academic advisors, 
and the opportunity to work closely with a 
faculty adviser in their department. A port- 
folio of written evaulations of each student's 
performance in honors coursework is devel- 
oped, making it possible for the Director of 
the Program to write very accurate and de- 
tailed letters of recommendation for student 
applications for jobs and graduate school. 
The Program is also beginning to organize a 
series of inter-disciplinary courses and ca- 
reer seminars tailored to the needs and aca- 
demic goals of its students. 

Honors courses may be taken at any point 
in a student's academic career — either as 
an individual intellectual challenge, or in ful- 
fillment of Honors requirements. Introduc- 
tory level Honors course offered through 
most departments are strictly limited in size 
to a maximum of twenty students. These 
courses assume active student involvement 
from the outset, demand more independent 
reading and research and, as a result, carry 
four rather than three academic credits. 

Honors courses are open to all University 
students by arrangement with the instructor 
of the three-credit departmental course. 
Faculty and students are encouraged to

meet before the class begins; in this way, 
the faculty member may ascertain whether 
or not the individual student is capable of 
handling the material for the course, and 
students may ascertain the level of involve- 
ment required of them. 

In 1972, the Academic Matters Commit- 
tee proposed changes to the then existing 
Honors Policy concerning graduation with 
higher honors. It was felt that the practice of 
higher honors based on cumulative cut-off 
points were too inclusive due to "grade infla- 
tion"; in some cases they were too restric: 
tive because of the carry-over of outdated 
grade point averages of returning students. 
It became increasingly evident that a system 
geared more toward individual achievement 
was necessary. Thus, the concept of depart- 
mental honors programs was established. 

Departmental Honors Programs vary 
from department to department. These pro- 
grams have been developed for those stu- 
dents interested in culminating their under- 
graduate education and preparing for gra- 
duate study through research and greater 
involvement in their department. Successful 
completion of a departmental honors pro- 
gram entitles a student to graduate with 
higher honors (magna cum laude, summa 
cum laude). 

An integral part of most Departmental 
Honors Programs is the Senior Honors The- 
sis. These projects are designed for and by 
students who plan to attend a graduate pro- 
gram, or wish to have some practical exper- 
ience in their field. Senior Honors Theses of 
recent years, for example, range from labo- 
ratory investigation to cultural and literary 
criticism; they include at least one novel, a 
produced play, an environmental design 
plan for the use of campus space, and in- 
creasing numbers of interdisciplinary ap- 
proaches to old and new problems.

^Bilingual Collegiate Program 

The Bilingual Collegiate Program (BCP) 
provides assistance to bilingual students 
through a wide variety of services and op- 
portunities for personal and intellectual 
growth. These services include: academic, 
personal, career, and financial aid counsel- 
ing; tutoring; and special curricular offer- 

Active recruitment of students is carried 
on within bilingual communities in this state 
in an attempt to locate high school students, 
as well as graduates and candidates with 
general equivalency diplomas, who demon- 
strate potential capabilities for college edu- 
cation, but, who, lacking appropriate orien- 
tation and motivation, would not normally 
apply for admission to the University. 

Through a comprehensive program of 
academic counseling, the BCP attempts to 
provide its students with all necessary infor- 
mation regarding such basics to University 
life as areas of study, required courses, facili- 
ties and resources of the University, individ- 
ual assistance in methods of study, and assis- 
tance with individual problems regarding the 
academic performance of students. 

In colloboration with different depart- 
ments within the University, the BCP has 

developed a series of courses taught in 
Spanish, designed to assist students in their 
transition to college life. The BCP frequently 
organizes workshops and seminars to deal 
with the specific needs of its students. 

As part of its service, the BCP offers all 
interested students a full tutorial assistance 
program. Through this program, the BCP 
provides assistance to those students with 
language or academic deficiencies. This as- 
sistance helps them to get the most out of 
their courses. An intense follow-up program 
permits the BCP to diagnose the needs and 
observe the progress of its students through 
a close collaboration between the program, 
its tutors, the students, and the University 

Over the past two years, the BCP has 
been compiling a collection of books and 
periodicals in Spanish and Portuguese. 
These books have been made available to 
students through a resource center located 
in the BCP offices. The purpose of this re- 
source center is to provide students with 
reading material relevant to their education- 
al and cultural needs which are not readily 
available through the libraries of the five

Four Years, Or Eight 
Semesters Ago 

I first came to UMass because of the great 
glazed donuts at the Coffee Shop. Since then 
much has "transpired" (college word for "hap- 
pened"). Now whole wheat bagels are enticing 
new entrants. 

As a graduating senior I empathize with Randy 
Newman, who groaned, "Oh, it's lonely at the 
top!" With a college degree I'll be playing a 
sophisticated game of "king of the mountain". 
The game is very competitive and goes something 
like this: 

"Hey, no one up here with practical education. 
Throw that engineering student off!" 

"Okay, the neighborhood is pure. Let's pass 
the time by yodeling." We shout down into the 
canyon. "GOT A JOB?" A soft echo reverberates 
back to us, "G-got a-a j-job?" 

"Wait, there is an answer. Quiet! There it is 
again ..." 

A blunt reply floats up to us. "WHO DO YOU 

"Okay gang, this calls for emergency name 
dropping." (Carefully tie little parachutes to 
these names: Teddy Kennedy, Sammy Davis Jr., 
Gary Trudeau, and Charles Manson). We toss the 
names over the cliff and hope one strikes home. 

Ah, what is left. I've experienced so much in 
these past four years. What have I to look for- 
ward to? I've already "done" (the hip verb for 
"use") every drug imaginable — Maalox, Corici- 
din, Rosehip Vitamins, zinc supplements, and I 
even took a snort of Tang. I've already gone out 
with a woman who was on the pill — also I've 
experimented with other birth control methods 
and failed several times to create a few non- 
nuclear families. 

I've already gone to 265 rock concerts — 
"No, that's not static you fool, thats the lead 
guitar."' I've already chowed down pizzas with 
every topping conceived of — Ivory Soap shav- 
ings, avacado chunks, cream cheese, chopped up 
milk carton, and philadendrin leaves. I've already 
totally destroyed two apartments; the security 
deposit went towards the last month's rent, and 
a house — no security deposit at all, obviously 
the landlord didn't know we played darts or got 
violent over the Celtic's losses. Is this what is 
meant as a new "lease" on life? 

So, what's left? Maybe I'll start an alfalfa 
sprout farm. No, better yet, I'll grow cheesecake. 

Some things will gladly be left behind. I happily 
say "later" to conversations that end with "lat- 
er". I'm done with cramming, jamming, and book- 
ing. I'll enjoy finding new exclamations for "dig it, 
get down, goin' down, wow, and your bad self." 
There will no longer be use for the salutations of 
"see ya, call ya, catch ya 'round". I can do 
without the academic complications of prerequi- 
sites, electives, major-minor and bush league. 

I'll get back to the simple life. Maybe I can 
avoid the people with dead reptiles over the 
breast of their tennis shirts. Maylie I can actually 
meet some people who wear khaki pants for 
manual labor. 

No, my college education has not been worth- 
less. At least I've learned to come in out of the 
rain. Maybe I didn't learn to tie my shpes, but I 
have perfected walking barefoot. I've learned that 
anti-matter is not a radical movement. 

Lastly, I've learned that the only way to end 
an article is to stop writing.

Instead of using the traditional 
approacli to describe the living 
areas, we've focused on one aspect 
and perspective of each. Herewith 
Steve, Mr. Kamins, Shonda, Louise, 
Maria, Debbie, Rhona, June, Dawn 
and Sylvia share their thoughts . . . 

The arrival of freshpersons in late Au- 
gust is always a hectic time for UMass 
administrators, and August 1977 was 
worse than most: it was at this time that 
they realized there was an acute housing 

UMass has a policy of accepting more 
students than there is space for, and due 
to those who decide to go to other 
schools, and those upperclasspersons 
who decide to live off-campus, the num- 
bers usually even out, and there are 
enough rooms for all who enter the do- 
main of Metawampe. This year over 300 
extra freshpersons and transfer students 
arrived at UMass only to find that there 
weren't any dorm rooms available for 

After placing a number of the frantic 
students into dorm lounges, private 
homes, and fraternities, the Campus Cen- 
ter Hotel was the remaining option open 
to the administration; over a hundred stu- 
dents checked into the hotel at the Uni- 
versity's expense. And how did those 
"fortunate" students feel about the situa- 

"I was pretty mad," said Brian Burke, a 
hotel resident for three weeks and one of 
its early student leaders. "I had been call- 
ing the school for about two weeks before 
I came up here after I heard about the 
possible room shortage. They told me to 
wait until I got up here because they 
couldn't make housing assignments over 
the phone. They just didn't have any male 
rooms open, and they couldn't move us 

into female dorms." 

The idea of living in the hotel would 
seem inviting to many students, but most 
of those who had to live there felt it left a 
lot to be desired. "My friends saw me in 
the Collegian articles and thought I was 
a celebrity," Burke said. "We had a color 
television, air conditioning, the Blue Wall 
downstairs and an extremely nice house- 
mother who we all called ma. Then I ex- 
plained the disadvantages. It threw my 
studying incentive off, we had no unity, 
and since none of us was sure exactly 
how long he'd be staying there, it was 
hard to build any solid friendships." Other 
problems these students faced were the 
lack of laundry facilities, colloqs, and an 
area government, and also, for a few 
days, they were ineligible to start work- 
study jobs because they didn't have a 
local permanent address (this situation 
was ammended as soon as Dean Field 
became aware of it). 

Legal Services Office (LSO) and Pier- 
pont residents were especially helpful. 
"They told us about our rights, and were 
behind us 100%," Burke said. "They 
really helped us, and we can't thank them 
enough. All the publicity the Collegian 
gave us helped our cause too." 

Male upperclasspersons were given the 
opportunity to move off campus to open 
more dorm rooms, but only a few left. The 
housing office tried to place the students 
in these rooms and in rooms vacated by 
students who dropped out; the hotel stu- 
dents were given the option of approving 

of a room before moving in, and could 
turn down a room for a valid reason. 

Burke and his roommate, Billy Walsh, 
moved into Patterson after about three 
weeks of "suitcase living". "Billy looks 
upon the experience as an outright victo- 
ry for us," Burke said. "I look upon it as 
an advantage. We have gone through the 
system in direct contact with the adminis- 
tration. We learned a lot from the exper- 
ience, but I wouldn't want it to happen 
again." Many housing officials would be 
quick to agree. 

Burke, Walsh, and the other students 
subjected to "suitcase living" and who 
are now in dorms were reimbursed for the 
time they spent in the hotel. If this situa- 
tion were to arise again, Walsh feels it 
would be due to ignorance on the part of 
the administration, but would like to help 
out anyone else who gets stuck in the 
same situation, so that they won't be as 
inconvenienced as the hotel students of 
1977 were. 

Although many former hotel students 
would rather forget that the problem ex- 
isted at all, Burke and Walsh take pride in 
telling people about it. "We saw what the 
school was really like," Burke said. "Ev- 
eryone was really willing to help." And for 
at least two students Collegian articles 
and photos still have a prominent place 
on the walls of their room in Patterson

I I 



When summer ignored my wishes and 
came again to Somerville last year, it sud- 
denly seemed time to move away from 
the asphalt. It was our eleventh straight 
hot season in one city or another. Enough 
was enough. 

Tree-shaded Amherst beckoned: cool 
and green, full of libraries at all the col- 
leges, and offering cultural and political 
action to fill in for the city. It looked like a 
perfect setting for a freelance writer. 
Moreover, my wife got a job in Amherst, 
which is how we eat. 

So we moved. But I have to report that 
my hopes for a peaceful life in the country 
have been thwarted. It turns out that cer- 
tain aspects of life in Amherst overreach 
the bounds of human tolerance, which is 
what I am equipped with. Don't get me 
wrong — I'm not ready yet to move back 
to the city, but I do need some assistance 
here to make it possible to stay. A pin- 

point artillery barrage would do it, or 
some armored bulldozers and a swinging- 
ball crane. History will exonerate those 
who help me. Alternatively, I will pay a 
modest honorarium. 

The source of the trouble can be stated 
in one word; Southwest. I can see it out 
my window as I write this. I don't like to 
look, but I can see it. I can hear it, too. 

The people who designed the towers 
apparently conceived of them as simple 
night storage space for the peaceful 
youth of college idylls. Obviously, none 
among them foresaw the potential for de- 
velopment there of the state's largest 
dope emporium, a monster five-barrel 
puffer whose exhaust can leave the Con- 
necticut Valley stoned as far as Holyoke. 

But that isn't my complaint. The real 
trouble is that life anywhere near South- 
west means continuous aural exposure to 
the world's largest, loudest combination 
rock concert, free-fire zone and primal 
scream therapy center. 

On the positive side, I admit that the 
experience has introduced me to some 
new and passionate philosophical inquir- 
ies. Among all the options in the universe, 
for instance, why does one 18th floor 

room house both a student and a 23,000 
watt amplifier? And given the immutable 
laws of opportunity and consequence, 
what power decided that that student 
could also have records to play? More 
basically, why — after the third straight 
attempt to broadcast rock and roll down 
the valley to Hartford at 3:30 a.m. — 
should such a student be allowed to re- 
main alive? 

And why, why did we ever rent a house 
so close to Southwest? 

When we found this house still vacant, 
we thought it was sheer luck. The big 
towers down the block — empty then for 
the summer break — hardly drew our 
attention. We had no experience to pre- 
pare us for the terror that began with Arri- 
val Day, the magic time each September 
when, in the space of twenty-four hours, 
Amherst is transformed from a set of 
crossroads into a raving traffic jam of mo- 
torized students. The air thickens as 
snorting cars butt and scream in the bat- 
tle for parking spaces. Meanwhile, stupi- 
fied and whimpering parents carry tons of 
stereo equipment up Southwest's endless 
stairs, circling the quiet elevator shafts 
whose cars refuse to operate when en- 
tered by humans with objects in their 

We now know that this capricious ele- 
vator service accounts for some of the 
screamers in Southwest. Some. As for the 
rest, I'm told that the syndrome is well- 
known in New York City: people succumb 


to the great metropolitan loneliness and 
simply begin to scream where they stand, 
usually on streetcorners. In Southwest, 
they open up the window at any hour and 
bellow out. 

It takes two or three prime howls to 
provoke the fabled Southwest Scream- 
er's Response Pattern (SSRP) which so 
intrigues local psychologists. Initial re- 
sponses are usually simple prescriptions 
for the screamer's condition ("shut up" is 
the current favorite), and may be offered 
several times. But continuation of this 
first-level interface quickly attracts the 
needed "critical mass" of participants, 
and then begins the thrilling, high-volume 
exhange of information so basic to the 
university experience here. Students re- 
veal that they have clocks, and can tell 
time. Others exchange anatomical de- 
scriptions and suggest experiments, or in- 
vestigate kinship possibilities. Potential 
new food chains are described. The first 
screamer, meanwhile, sits back in the 
shadows to smile, dreamily reassured of 
company on his/her lonely voyage. 

By careful experiment, I have deter- 
mined that SSRP can overcome two 
sheets of window glass, a thickness of 
pillow, and any earplugs on the market. 

And the dorms offer pyrotechnics be- 
yond the outbursts of SSRP. Depending 
on their floor, the screamers and lovers of 
amplified rock may also take part in 
Southwest's continuing air-to-ground 
warfare. Alienated from the ground below 
and marooned aloft by the elevators, up- 
per-floor students hurl down beer cans, 
water, and furniture into Southwest's 
courtyards, and float out toilet paper in 
festoons that lace downwind neighbor- 
hoods for miles. Aerial fusillades of fire- 

crackers come down sparking and pop- 
ping, pleasantly staccato in comparison 
to the blasts of the proximity-fuse cherry 

Still, if all I had to deal with was the 
decibelic assault from Southwest, I might 
not yet be at the breaking point. But there 
are people inside those towers who are 
not content with long-distance harass- 
ment. I can identify them because I have 
seen them face to face as well as through 
the windows on their rooms (I use binocu- 
lars, if you must know). 

Some of these marauders go jogging in 
the dark hours, and detour past to drop 
bottles and trash on our lawn. They think 
the night hides them. But I have my infra- 
red gear. I see them. 

During odd moments of sleep, I dream 
of unpopulated places, but the rest of the 
time I obsess on vengence; bursting into 
the 18th-floor room like Wonder Warthog, 
sending student and stereo out the win- 
dow with tremendous kicks. Off, then, 
through the halls, to tommygun the 
screamers' doors. 

You can see what is happening. A great 
career (take my word for it) is being mired 
in the swamp of violence. My work is at a 










standstill. The only thing I have been able 
to produce in weeks is this justification for 
the acts I feel increasingly compelled to 
carry out.

England Magazine in the Boston Globe

Patrick Kamins is the manager of the 
following apartment complexes: Latern 
Court, Northwood, Cliffside, Presidential, 
Colonial Village, Cederwood, Swiss Vil- 
lage, and Village Apartments. 

"Everybody thinks I own these places. I 
don't. The owners wouldn't hire me if in 
fact I didn't come on like I owned these 
places. I have more problems with the 
owners than I do with the tenants." 

Index: Do you feel that the University 
could provide better housing? 

Kamins: Yes, at an expense. They're do- 
ing the best they can at the University. 
The students are ripped off in the sense of 
standards. If you like confusion, if you like 
a lot of boyfriends around, you've got to 
go to the high rise. I can't provide that for 
you at Cliffside or Colonial Village. Some 
kids love that; they enjoy that. I'll not 
deny that, but dollar for dollar they're get- 
ting ripped off: in privacy, in their stan- 
dards, and in what they're used to at 
home, I'm sure. 

/.■ How do you feel about the fact that the 
University makes it so hard for students to 

live off-campus? 

K: They're a business in themselves. 
They're doing the best they can, and the 
best by our standards is not good 
enough. I'll challenge them one on one — 
anyone — that I have the best. There's 
no graft there. I think they're doing a ter- 
rific job, but the private sector can do 

/; Would you say that mostly students live 
in your apartments? 

K: No. That might surprise most people. 
Presidential is 99% faculty and profes- 
sional people. 

/.• With families? 

K: Not so much, no. A very important 
question as far as the town is concerned 
— a family constitutes children. No, just 
faculty, single types. We have many one 
bedrooms there. Not too many kids. From 
the townperson's level, children are an 
expense — a tax expense. I don't believe 
there are seven children at Presidential. 
I'm just old enough to tell you that the 
Board of Appeals, and the people of the 
town who set up multi-unit housing took 
this into consideration. Let's take 200 

units of Colonial Village design; the Bo- 
ard of Appeals and the town authorities 
levied just how many two bedrooms, how 
manyone bedrooms, how many three bed- 
rooms. It doesn't take much to understand 
that three bedrooms mean children. Three 
bedrooms, children, and the taxpayers' 
dollar just means taxes — you have to 
educate the kids. And I must say, those 
people, when they put together the by- 
laws, took this into consideration and left 
the kids out. It was definately industry to 
the community, but didn't take out on the 
tax dollar because there are so few chil- 
dren using up the tax dollars in the com- 

/.■ Are there certain apartment complexes 
that are mostly students? 

K: Yes, each complex has a personality 
in itself. A young person like yourself 
comes through the door, and you have a 
lifestyle of your own. Do you want to live 
with the professors of the community? No 
way. So I tell these people, and they 
don't. A young person does not live at 
Presidential. I don't really know you. I'd 
size you up. A young marled type, yes. All 
utilities $185.00 per month; that's quite a 
buy by anybody's standards and we're 
proud of it, and it's filled — I've never had 
a vacancy. Maybe if you were a young 
married type that's where you would be- 
long. Colonial Village. A personality In it- 
self. Living with young married types. 
Now let's go next door -^ Swiss Village. 
Now that's a different ball game entirely. 
Four bedrooms, a bunch of swingers. It's 
inexpensive, it's also much in demand. 
There are no vacancies. Amherst College

rented tialf of it. 

/; Do you tiave any problems witti tardy 
rent, or students causing damage or 
walking out? 

K: 99% of ttie students are beautiful 
people. Ttie people ttiat get ripped off: 
ttiey didn't get paid, ttieir apartment got 
wrecked, they're ttie exception. From my 
twenty-seven years in the business, I 
take a student over any other type of 

/.■ Why? 

K: I treat them just like my kids, and I 
have. You mess up the apartment, I'm 
going to call your mother and father. 

/.• You'd really do that? 

K: Oh, I have. Of course I'd call your 
parents. Many times the par- 
ents come in and introduce 
themselves to me — especially 
with girls. Look at me. I'm old 
enough to be a father image. 
Fathers have rights. Mothers 
have rights. They come in here, 
they like a father image to be a 
landlord. I'll play the part. And 
I'll call your old man if you don't 
pay your rent or cut it up. You've 
got no credit, and what do you 
have for a job? You obligate your- 
self with $200.00 plus apartment 
You've got no income. Who's be- 
hind you? Mommy and daddy. 

This is good. This is a community 
This is a student community, and if the 
elders don't take you on as a daughter, 
somebody's hurting . . . The fallacy that 
students are no damn good is not so. If it 
wasn't for you, we wouldn't have such a 
lovely community.

We are thirty-two people. Some of us 
came to UMass for four years. I, Louise, 
came up as a freshman with best pal, Jill. 
Others came from community colleges 
after two years. The common denomina- 
tor was fifth floor Webster, "Jive 5". We 
got off campus by junior year. We got 
back together, and here's how it was: 

Chris: It was far enough away to be 
considered secluded, but not isolated, 
from campus. 

Louise: My memories include sliding 
down the hill in the winter. Ice city. Stum- 
bling down the hill on weekends (and 
many weekdays). 

Debbie: Thank goodness at times that 
the infirmary was so close. 

Patty: If you didn't have hiking boots 
during the "thaw"- forget it. 

Sly: There were so many paths to take. 

Stephanie: It's crazy. 

David: Wild; drugs, sex, alcohol. 

Judie: The orchard definitely makes it 
the best. 

Michael: The campfires out near the 
observatory were excellent, intense ex- 
periences. People were hanging from 
trees, toasting sausage, marshmallows 
and their minds. 

Wado: Crazy people, small corridors. I 
love the orchard out back in the spring. 
First come the blossoms, then the fris- 
bees, and finally the bikinis. 

Kevin: I'll never forget those walks 
across the path from Sylvan the "morn- 
ings after". 

Scott: There's a lot of debris stricken 

dirt balls up here and we love it. 

Rich: The walk to the D.C.s is worth it 
'coz the food is just so delicious! 

Nancy: Being an R.A. was good; hav- 
ing a single was good; ... I liked it, I liked 
it a real lot. Sure, you could party, or 
study, or whatever. 

Elaine: My most vivid memories are 
the bands that play during the spring in 
the bowl and tennis courts. 

Nick: The kegs, the joints, empty bot- 
tles, empty baggies, empty pants 
(OOPS!), radios and lots and lots of nice 

Brenda: Remember the initial shock of 
the parents to see their little baby swal- 
lowed up in a co-ed dorm, a co-ed bath- 
room, "Oh no! We've lost her." 
Hot Cross: It's definitely "buns up"! 
Terry: Classes were pretty far away. 
Susan: The water fights. 
Jan: The semi-formals. 
Ed: The floor breakfasts, suppers; the 
feeling of unity. 

Cindy: The place where I met my hus- 

Bill: How about the time when Amherst 
Towing came; we heard it over the dorm 
intercom, and all the Webster residents 
rushed to the balconies. We threw paint, 
eggs, furniture, obsenities, and we won! 
Peter: The dorm fights between Gray- 
son, Webster and Dickinson. ("Dickinson 
sucks. Fifth floor Webster has crabs"). 

Del: That sad feeling the day you 
moved off campus (which soon turned to 
glee when you realized that food could be 


Kevin: All I remember are those crazy 
Thursday nights. Barely remember the 
walk (stumble) down the hill, and never 
never the walk back up. 

Michael: The stereos blaring out the 
windows. Some one somewhere was al- 
ways up and about at any hour. 

Stan: I really got off on the night peo- 
ple; the partiers. 

Gun: It was the scum of the earth, and I 
hated that pit. 

Jeff: I could relate to people at any 
level, but I had to drop out for a semester 
due to heavy whist playing. 

Sue: The opportunity to expand your- 
self through Orchard Hill courses initially 
attracted me to the hill. 

Pat: I figured I had to lose weight and 
what better way than walking up the hill at 
least three times a day. Too bad the jour- 
ney was usually to the D.C.s and the bus 
service was so good. 

Doreen: I'll never forget the trips 
through the woods or the picnics with 
Steve in the orchard. 

Paul: I enjoyed the fact that the dorm 
rooms were so unique as well as different 
from each other. You could always move 
the desks or dressers around. 

Jim: The most exciting times were 
bunking and unbunking the beds. 

Jane: Orchard Hill is the place where I 
met some of the best friends I know I'll 
ever have.

"And let your best be for your friend. 

If he nnust know the ebb of your tide, let him know its 
flood also. 

For what is your friend that you should seek hinn with 
hours to kill? 

Seek him always with hours to live. 

For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness. 

And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, 
and sharing of pleasures. 

For in the dew of little things the heart finds its 
morning and is refreshed."

"You're in a sorority," my co- 
worker exclaimed, "you don't seem 
the type." 

That's always the reaction I In- 
voke when I tell people I'm in a so- 
rority. And since being pledged last 
November I still cannot figure out 
what the sorority type is. As much 
as this campus has changed in the 
past few years, the "sorority-girl" 
image still prevails. You know, 
matching sweater-skirt outfits, of 
which I don't own one. We all drink 
lots of beer, stay up all night party- 
ing (I wish!!!). Oh, and I almost for- 

got, we date all the eligible (?) fraterni- 
ty men. We're all supposed to be frivo- 
lous and very superficial. Maybe some 
of us are, but for the most part we are 
here just like anyone else, for an edu- 

Of course any Greek that you speak 
to is going to defend their house with 
furor. Belonging to a house gives you a 
special feeling and on a large and 
sometimes unfriendly campus it's nice 
to know you have a place to call home. 

All fraternities and sororities get their 
members by sponsoring rush parties. 
The structure and format of these par- 
ties varies from house to house. Most 





fraternities, for example, have a keg of 
beer and invite people they know from 
the dorms or their high school class 
who they think will make good mem- 
bers in the house. In a sorority a lot of 
planning goes into rush parties as most 
houses work with a particular theme 
like a wine and cheese or sundae night. 
The biggest difference in rush between 
fraternities and sororities is that sorori- 
ties pool their resources and sponsor a 
very publicized rush at the beginning of 
the fall semester. The Panhellenic 
Council develops the master rush pro- 
gram for all the houses and aids each 
house with any problems that might 



arise during the rush period. 

After a candidate goes through rush 
they get pledged into membership. 
Pledging is perhaps the most misun- 
derstood part of the Greek area. 
Pledging is even misunderstood by 
pledges. Pledging is simply the time 
period in which a person gets to know 
more about the house and its mem- 
bers. It is an in-between period where 
you are a member but not yet a broth- 
er or sister. Most outsiders to the 
Greek area have only seen the crazy 
part of pledging, like a pledge dressed 
up in a crazy outfit singing at the Pub. 
Or maybe when they were walking 

down North Pleasant street they saw 
the Beta Phi pledges playing in a mud 
puddle. It's too bad that these people 
don't get a chance to see the serious 
side of pledging because it really is a 
rewarding experience. 

Although the Greek system is well 
known for St. Patty's Day, Busch Fest, 
and Schlitzerama, it's greater assets 
are not known. The area government, 
Greek Council, has representatives 
from every house. They meet every 
other Wednesday night and plan, in 
addition to the all-day drinking mara- 
thons, events that are fund raisers for 
charitable organizaton. Greeks also 

volunteer their time to such pro- 
grams as Belchertown State 
School, Board of Governers and the 
University Tour Guide Service, AR- 

My experience in the UMass 
Greek area has been a very enlight- 
ening one. Just like anything else on 
this campus, the experience is what 
you make it. I entered the Greek 
system with this attitude and empty- 
handed and when I leave I'll have 
gained a rewarding experience and 
an awful lot of good memories.

Campus publications at UMass had al- 
ways been a fun thing to do, and even 
educational, until late Spring 1978. 

By that time, the annual budget of the 
Massachusetts Daily Collegian had 
passed the $300,000 mark. It had 
reached the 20,000-a-day circulation 
figure. And it was appearing five days a 

Under the burden of such responsibil- 
ities, fun it may not have been but edu- 
cational it remained. For when MDC be- 
came a powerful voice on which about 
97 percent of the student population re- 
lied as their sole medium of print com- 
munication, the student-operated news- 
paper also became fair game for politi- 
cians, demagogues and assorted rebels 
with questionable causes. 

And as soon as this essay comes off 
the presses, A.D. 1978 will go down in 
campus history on a dark page. It will 
even rival the year 1966, when the infa- 
mous "Shazam" caper rocked the cam- 
pus. The saving grace then was that it 
aroused more than 3,5000 students to 
defend their press in what proved to be 
MDCs finest hour. 

The University's archivist may now 
record the year 1978 as the year the 
MDCs women's editor and 100 Sisters 
prevailed where the likes of Spiro Ag- 
new and Bert Lance had failed. They 
effected the student government take- 
over of the largest campus daily in New 
England. And none of the area's commu- 
nications media took note of this phe- 
nomenon because the drama of 101 wom- 
en taking hostage a predominantly male 
activity obscured the significance of 

the event. What had happened was that 
the women had demanded four full 
pages a week, free of advertising, for 
their own use to promote the causes of 
women on campus. When they were re- 
fused, passionate lobbying among stu- 
dent senators congregated nearby the 
MDC offices resulted in a resolution 
passed by the incredible plurality of 
more than four to one (58 to 13). The 
resolution called for the Student Senate 
to repossess the production equipment 
of MDC and freeze the newspaper's 
$300,000 budget (85 per cent of which is 
raised by advertising but over which 
the Senate has 100 per cent control). 

The editors capitulated and after 
some two hours of occupying the MDC 
news room, forcing the staffers to move 
elsewhere to go about the business of 
preparing the next day's edition, the 
women gave up their turf, exulting in 
the separate but more-than-equal repre- 
sentation they had won. 

It was a dark day for the student 
newspaper that for more than 30 years 
had been published under the banner of 
"A Free and Responsible Student Press." 
That slogan had been adopted during 
the tenure of this writer as Editor-in- 
Chief of the then weekly Collegian. The 
year was 1947. And the inspiriation had 
been the report of the Hutchins Com- 
mission on Freedom of the Press. 

One of the truths the Commission 
had shared then that persists to this 
day was a quotation from John Adams in 
1815: "If there is ever to be an ameliora- 
tion of the condition of mankind, philos- 
ophers, theologians, legislators, politi- 

cians, and moralists will find that the 
regulation of the press is the most diffi- 
cult, dangerous and important problem 
they have to resolve. Mankind cannot 
now be governed without it, nor at pre- 
sent with it." 

Messers. Agnew and Lance, at differ- 
ent times, both charged the media with 
mistreating them with erroneous and bi- 
ased reporting. And in their own times 
(Bert Lance only a week before the 
women's takeover of MDC), both the 
former Vice-President of the United 
States and the Budget Director of the 
Carter Administration offered as a solu- 
tion to their problems the outside cen- 
sorship of the American press. But they 
were never able to pull it off, even with 
friends in the highest places of the land. 

Even before April 12, 1978, the MDC 
had had its share of grief at the hands 
of its critics. But it has never missed a 
deadline - not even when, in February 
1976, about thirty-five Third World stu- 
dents had taken over the editorial of- 
fices then situated on the mezzanine of 
the Student Union. During a three and a 
half hour occupation, they had ousted all 
but four of the staff, barricaded the 
doors with desks and masked the win- 
dows with newspapers. They were pro- 
testing the firing of two Black staff 

But the greatest danger to the integ- 
rity of the Collegian, before the student 
senators took the First Amendment in 
their teeth in 1978, occurred on May 12, 

The date was some six weeks after 
the moribund humor magazine on cam- 

pus, Yahoo, had appeared with a four- 
panel cartoon depicting an individual 
wearing a cassock-like garment and 
holding a chalice-like vessel from which 
he ultimately pulled a rabbit before a 
candelabra, while uttering but one word, 

State Senator Kevin Harrington of the 
witch country of Salem reportedly 
stormed into the hearing room on Bea- 
con Hill where consideration was being 
given to the University's request for 
$34.5 million budget. Facing a battery of 
television cameras, newsmen and still 
photographers surrounding a hapless 
John Lederle, then president of the Am- 
herst campus, Harrington reportedly 
drew himself to his full six feet seven 
inches. Throwing a copy of the offend- 
ing magazing on the table, he demanded 
that Lederle explain why State funds 
were being used to produce a magazine 
that offended the Roman Catholics of 
the State (he had taken the cartoon to 
be poking fun at the rite of Holy Com- 

The Salem Senator, who in 1978 is him- 
self facing charges of taking illegal cam- 
paign contributions, said, "I will not 
stand for an attack on my religion ..." 

And that very day, he was instrumen- 
tal in the Senate passage by a 34 to 4 roll 
call vote of his resolution to order a 
special investigation of a//student publi- 
cations at UMass. 

"Whoever is responsible for this mag- 
azine is going to go," he said. "There 
are going to be hard days ahead for the 
University of Massachusetts, and I pre- 
dict that heads will roll," he said. 

Galvinized into action by Collegian 
staffers, a Free Press Committee of 
twenty-seven student leaders (with this 
writer as faculty adviser) was formed. 
The first action was to publish a special 
newspaper, "The Free Press", which ap- 
peared on Friday the thirteenth of May. 
It called for the signing of a petition that 
read: "In the belief that the students of 
this campus should have the right and 
freedom to establish and conduct their 
own publications, free of censorship and 
nonstudent interference, we feel the es- 
tablishment of a State Senate committee 
to investigate University Publication se- 
riously jeopardizes this basic democrat- 
ic liberty and places the freedom of all 
our student publications in grave dan- 

"... we the undersigned deplore the 
action taken by the State Senate and 
agree with the Free Press Committee in 
recommending the prompt dissolution 
of this Senate committee." 

By noon, more than 3,500 signatures 
had been collected. Within a week, a 
march on Beacon Hill was called off 
when college administrators and stu- 
dents had negotiated an agreement 
with the Senator from Salem that he 
would "squelch the probe" if he had as- 
surances that the University officials 
were "on top of the situation." 

By summer's end, there had been no 
further word about the strange case of 
Yahoo's hassle with Church and State. 
And the Collegian's integrity remained 
intact, because it had fought for the 
principle and won. 

MDC became a daily newspaper in 

1967 and, in the intervening years, MDC 
and/or its individual staffers have 
faced charges of bad taste, obscenity, 
libel, racism and sexism. In Spring 1977, 
for example, another women's editor 
was responsible for a palace revolt. But 
it was settled in-house, albeit at a cost 
of more than $1,000 in anticipated ad- 
vertising revenues for the semester. 
The 1978 embroglio will cost $800 a week 
in lost advertising revenues. 

Anyway, the 1977 bruhaha resulted 
when the women's editor objected to 
what she termed "sexist" ads supplied 
by a prominent beer manufacturer who 
was using well-endowed young ladies 
wearing sizes-too-small tee shirts and 
short-shorts as models. In the ads, they 
were shown clutching cold beers in hot 
hands. The objection for which the 
women's editor gained support even 
from male staffers (the Board of Editors 
voted to censor the ads) was that the 
full-page ads exploited women as sex 
objects and held them to public con- 

In spite of these incidents in Collegian 
history, it is the events of April 12, 1978 
that will go down in the annals of infa- 
mous incursions on our campus press. 
For when government (any government, 
even play-government) is permitted to 
castrate First Amendment freedoms, 
Paul Revere's Ride will have been for 
nothing, the lessons of the Holocaust 
will have been wasted, and even Wood- 
ward and Bernstein may well have 
chased girls as they did in "Deep 

Throat." ^ . „ ,.^ „

Many moons have passed since the demise of the 
Below the Salt and still the true story of its collapse and 
fade into oblivion has yet to be revealed. The truth of 
the matter is that the popular supplement to the UMass 
Daily Collegian was destroyed by countercultural vigi- 
lantes who sought to prevent the course the four year 
old paper was taking. It was the Residential Lunatic 
Music Brigade (Sexist-Pistolist) that skillfully and with- 
out media fanfare threatened and intimidated Salt out 
of business for its refusal not to print a favorable re- 
view of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (movie 
and soundtrack). This act of cultural high treason was 
more than a casual dip into the mainstream. According 
to the RLMB (SP), the Below the Salt had betrayed its 
founding principles by sacrificing the wholly credible 
and responsible manner in which it had formerly re- 
ported crazy music trends and new kinds of styles for 
weirdos, and for the bland mainstream approach devel- 
oped in its last semester of operation. Many people 
were disappointed that the Salt was going to print a 
favorable review of the slick celluloidal version of Sgt. 
Pepper, a film branded by the RLMB (SP) as "pure 
poison for no people", and considered it a serious 
enough effront to the academic community here at 
UMass to organize an apparatus that could effectively 
block the publication of a magazine that many of these 
very activists helped to start. Of course, many more 
people suffered in the process by its actual obstructed 
publication-, weekends were a drag on campus without 
convenient lists compiled on the back page of the paper 
about things to dO) investors in recorded sound had to 
do without the weekly featured ""market analysis" that 
was Salt's trademarked aid to wise and wary record 
consumers; and fine arts programs at the FAC went 
unprofiled. Even RasTapunk no longer had a forum. 

It started in August of 1978 with a slogan, ""SALT 
PASSES PEPPER, SELLS OUT." Two hours after it was 
learned that Fine Arts Editor K. Stephen Shain was 
about to go ""soft" on the Robert O. Stigwood produc- 
tion of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in the 
upcoming fall debut of Below the Salt, a spontaneous 
rally was generated by professional countercultural agi- 
tators chanting "SALT PASSES PEPPER, SELLS OUT", 
misleading bystanders and onlookers with confusing 
and often malicious diatribes about the quality of the 
BeeGees performance, or about Peter Frampton's inad- 
equacies as a rock n' roll superstar. 

The convulated reasoning of the RLMB (SP) was car- 
ried to its extreme when a somewhat favorable dia- 
logue was printed in the last issue of the Summer Colle- 
gian (1978) between the fine arts editor's seven year 
old daughter, Shonda, and Lawrence, her eleven year 
old uncle. At this point, the RLMB (SP) threatened to 
invade the Amherst Public School System with a ""PRE- 
SCHOOLER'S FOR PATTI (SMITH)" campaign if any 
continued observence of mainstream cultural tenden- 
cies were not finally put to an end. 

Organized within a scant three weeks after the publi- 
cation of the first piece of evidence, the RLMB (SP) 
carried on its work in utmost secrecy. Though it was 
known throughout the previous semester that the Salt 
had been drifting toward a more mainstream position 
during the crucial ""Winter of Punk Discontent", this 
was all dismissed as an attribute to Assistant Editor 
Mary Brown's influence on the paper, and it was felt by 
the Muckamuck Spastics, a Residential Lunatic UWW 
Lifestyle-for-credit Cult and RLMB (SP) vanguard wing 

of that, the influence would subside after her gradu- 
ation. It was during these months that the opposition 
set in, infiltrating the staff, influencing staff sensibili- 
ties, and gaining key positions in an attempt to guide 
the paper's direction once the transition in classes was 

Defending himself against charges of ""sell-outism". 
Editor Shain pointed out the historic implications of the 
BeeGees music in South Africa, where despite apart- 
heid rule, Saturday Night Fever, an integrated record 
package, sold well among the white youth, influencing 
cultural development in the racist state and inhibiting 
racist consciousness. Shain also added that the current 
disco trend, internationally, offers youth more opportu- 
nity to socialize than ever before. Rejecting cultural 
forms is one thing, but prohibiting their practice is 
quite another. As far as the Beatles/BeeGees angle 
goes, "hell, it only works if you put such a high premium 
on the Beatles to begin with. That's what those Resi- 
dentialites don't understand. They're the ones who 
have fallen for the slick commercial media image — the 
Beatles. All I am doing is covering the BeeGee back- 

According to Ross Nerenberg, former music editor, 
there is nothing wrong with liking something even if 
other people do. "Hell, I've been liking music that other 
people happen to like for years. In fact, if my friends 
over in Leach don't like a record, well, I dispose of it at 
a convenient market repository." Ross likes the Beatles 
and as yet has no firm opinions on the BeeGee/Framp- 
ton remake, claiming, "I've gott'a consider that Aeros- 
mith is in on it too and they're one of my favorite 

As momentum gathered for the fateful day in August, 
Shain conferred with Mario A. Barros, incoming assis- 
tant editor, on the dilemma. Agreeing that such a con- 
frontation with hoardes of deranged Residential Luna- 
tics was unnecessary, the Collegian editorial board was 
consulted and it was determined that the paper would 
follow a ""wait and see" policy, reflecting the boards . 
unwilingness to commit itself to any direction after the 
events of last spring. 

Waiting patiently for signs of cultural terrorism, the 
fine arts weekly was a sitting duck. And then it hap- 
pened. Acting almost spontanously, the Collegian of- 
fices were taken over by throngs of confused and be- 
wildered Residential Lunatics demanding an end to 
preferential coverage of mainstream activities, igno- 
rance of the masses, and support for suicidal and self- 
destructive lifestyles. Countering Shain's direct ap- 
proach, with an alternating current, the RMLB (SP) 
sought and succeeded in turning the Below the Salt 
corner of the Collegian into a veritable three-ring cir- 
cus. Finally and in the main, it was the fever pitch of 
excitement reached during the "We have Dean Corll on 
our side" chant and the ""1,2,3,4 We love Gary Gilomer" 
sing-a-long that forced the fine arts editor to announce 
the desolution of the Salt. Amidst a thunderous and 
tumultous applause, K. Stephen and his weary band of 
journalists retreated to an adjacent room to begin plan- 
ning their upcoming bi-weekly general interest feature 
magazine. Not operating under the auspices of a giant 
and insidous cultural monoply syndicate, the new maga- 
zine will not be afraid to thumb its nose at anyone but 
will also not be intimidated into thumbing its nose at 

Union Video Center is a non-profit professionally and student 
affed video production and programming facility on campus. An 
dvocate of participatory TV, UVC makes available and encour- 
les the use of video equipment in order that UMass students and 
le surrounding community might have the opportunity to express 
leir ideas, values and lifestyles through the television medium. As 
jch, UVC provides an environment for the union of ideas and the 
lechanisms to produce and present them to the community at 

Workshops are offered to train interested members of the com- 
lunity in portable and studio production technique and vidio tape 

A program library of over one hundred titles is available at Union 
ideo Center with facilities available during normal office hours 
)r viewing. Programming produced locally and nationally ranges 
om video art, to dance, satire and social documentary. A special 

collection is available on energy related issues and alternative 
energy possibilities with material recorded at successive Toward 
Tomorrow Fairs. Programs include speeches by Hazel Henderson, 
Ralph Nader, and Buckminster Fuller, as well as several energy 
demonstrations and exhibits. 


or those of you who are 
wondering what WSYL-FM is 
all about, here's your chance 
to find out. WSYL is the 
Sylvan area radio station run 
by the Sylvan Area 
Government and is in the 
basement of Cashin House. It 
transmits 500,000 milliwatts 
at an assigned frequency of 
97.7. WSYL is a non-profit 
organization in which the 
disc jockeys don't need to 
be licensed, because 500,000 
mw is too small to warrant a 
license for use of the air 

The listening audience is 
primarily from Sylvan, 
although Northeast and 
(under some conditions) a 
few other areas can recieve 
the broadcast. 

Senior Rich Multzman has 
been the engineer ever since 
the fall of 1977, which was 
when the station started. 
Rich is the only person who 
fully understands how the 
station is runj we'll miss him. 

Kay Ward and Cliff 
McCarthy were co-directors 
of the station this year. The 
director and engineer are

Most UMass students do not realize that this campus 
houses a professional public radio station known nation- 
ally for its programming. That station is WFCR, 88.5 
on the FM dial. WFCR is a co-operative effort of the 
Five Colleges housed in Hampshire House on Massa- 
chusetts Avenue, only a few feet from Southwest. 

WFCR is not a "training ground"; the operation 
and most of the announcing is handled by a full-time 
staff of fourteen professionals, with help from a half- 
dozen students from the Five College area. Student 
employees have generally learned the ropes of radio 
elsewhere and have passed a rigid production test 
before being hired. 

The station broadcasts in stereo twenty hours a 
day with 35,CXX) watts of power to a listening area 
that covers six states and many thousands of lis- 

The format of WFCR is comprised of classical 
music and public affairs programming, with some 
jazz and Spanish music as well. Offerings in the 
classical music area include local programs like "Pedal 
Point", "Daybreak", and "Music for Night People", re- 

corded concerts by the New York Philharmonic, the 
Chicago Symphony and other renowned orchestras, 
and "Morning Pro Musica", a five hour program each 
morning originating in Boston and broadcast 
throughout the Northeast. The public affairs pro- 
gramming includes recorded addresses from the 
Five Colleges and a wide variety of news and feature 
programs from National Public Radio, a nationwide 
non-commercial network of which WFCR is a mem- 
ber. Both the fulltime and part-time staff work hard 
to present a diversified range of programs while 
maintaining high air quality standards, and the lis- 
teners seem to appreciate this. WFCR currently has 
over 5,000 members in its six-state listening area, 
each contributing ten dollars or more annually to 
the station's operation. Additional funding comes 
from the Five Colleges and a number of private 
and public grants.

The undergraduate Student Senate is composed of 120 students elect- 
ed from their respective residential areas. Senators have the responsi- 
bility of keeping their constituencies informed on issues which arise 
during the year. These include tuition and fee increases, academic and 
residential policy, delivery of student services or the general lack there- 
of, and policy as it relates to Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) 

The Senate's main responsibility is to disperse over $1.3 million in 
Student Activities taxes (SATF) collected each year. The Senate consid- 
ers requests for funding from various student groups and the Budgets 
Committee develops a budget for the coming year. Student groups are 
recognized by the Senate, and any ten students may form a RSO group. 
Presently there are over 400 such groups on campus. The Senate also 
funds activities, programs, and cultural activities which enrich the 
entire university community. These activities have included free con- 
certs, movies, conferences, lectures, and other special events. 

The Senate has continually worked towards a goal of students having 
more of a control over decisions that affect them, instead of passively 
accepting Administration directives concerning our majors, electives, 
housing, food, and general student services. Over 4,000 students are 
involved in some aspect of student government and student organiza-

We are a volunteer, student organized, managed, and 
staffed photography co-op with a discount store. We 
exist for two reasons. The first is to provide the univer- 
sity community with photographic services which will 
benefit all students. The second is to establish a social 
organization which will provide a forum for all interest- 
ed UMass photo enthusiasts. 

We sell every item and service at the store at low, 
student discount prices. We are interested in providing 
our fellow students with the best possible photographic 
services that are available with our resources. 

On March 31, 1975, the University of Massachusetts Student Federal 
Credit Union opened its doors for service as one of the most unique 
financial institutions in the world. It started during the fall of 1974 when a 
group of students from the Student Government Association began investi- 
gating the possibility of students handling their own financial needs. Their 
research led them to the National Credit Union Administration which had a 
pilot program for student credit unions. By March 1975, the credit union 
received a charter from NCUA which allowed members money to be 
insured up to $40,CXX) by the federal government. 

A credit union is a cooperative association of people with a common 
bond, organized to promote thrift and create a source of credit for the 
membership by pooling members savings to make loans at reasonable 
interest rates. Although our common bond to the University is somewhat 
unique, the principle of this student credit union remains the sames we are 
a democratic institution, run by members in order to serve members 

In its three years of existence the credit union has grown to become the 
largest and most successful student credit union in the country. This has 
been accomplished by an all-volunteer staff (approximately eighty-five 
students in 1978) which offers the following services to the members: high 
interest savings, low cost loans, bank checking, used car valuation, travel- 
ers check and money order sales, and food stamp redemption. Our present 
level of 3,400 members and almost one - half million dollars in assets 
signifies our success in the University community. In addition, we have 
given out over one-half million dollars in loans to almost 1,000 students who, 
in most cases, would be unable to obtain credit elsewhere. 

The growth and success of the University of Massachusetts Student 
Federal Credit Union is certainly a credit to all students on the Amherst 
campus and proves what people can do when they get together for a 
common purpose.

For many people on campus, the sight 
of a greasy hamburger or a smoke-filled 
cafeteria does little for the appetite. It is 
with these folks in mind that Earthfoods 

Earthfoods is a vegetarian restaurant. 
A student-run, non-profit collective, 
Earthfoods was started two years ago by 
a small group of people in dire need of 
good food and a comfortable place to eat. 
By approaching the Student Senate and 
gaining RSO status, these students were 
able to realize their desire. There have 
been growing pains but the venture is 
now maturing so that today Earthfoods 
employs twenty workers and fills at least 
400 stomachs each day. 

In addition to feeding the community, 
Earthfoods also provides an alternative 
work experience. As a collective there 
are no hierarchical positions and each 
worker is equally responsible for the suc- 
cessful functioning of Earthfoods. The 
work is shared and everyone is expected 
to cook and serve as well as scrub pots. 
Earthfoods is unique among collectives in 
that there is not a coordinator. At times 
the anarchy produces confusion but more 
often what develops is a glorious quiche 
and a sense of the amazing powers of 

Earthfoods also provides an outlet for 
area musicians who are invited to play for 
tips and a free meal. The live singing and 

music making is a welcome relief from 
the sounds which permeate the Student 
Union and Campus Center. 

The food at Earthfoods is delicious as 
well as nutritious. Using fresh, unpro- 
cessed produce, dairy products, and 
grains, the entire meal is created the 
same day it is served. Even the most 
clogged noses can't miss the olfactory 
delights which seep from the kettles and 
ovens to spill into the halls of the Student 

With the support of the University, 
Earthfoods will continue to learn and 
grow while providing nutritional vegetar- 
ian meals at the lowest possible cost and 
in a friendly, easy style. 


The People's Market is a collective 
food store run entirely by students at 
UMass. The People's Market was official- 
ly opened on February 12, 1973. Originally 
financed by a loan from the Commuter 
Collective, the idea of a student-run co- 
operative food store was brought to frui- 
tition through the efforts of many people. 
The first two co-ordinators, Ellen Gavin 
and Gail Sullivan, believed that the Mar- 
ket would be a political place which would 
help people to gain more control over 

what they eat. 

The original number of ten part-time 
workers has doubled in five years. In ad- 
dition to the part-time paid staff of twen- 
ty, there is a volunteer program through 
which volunteers can receive food credit. 
The variety of items stocked at the Mar- 
ket has grown enormously in response to 
student requests. Products are purchased 
mainly from other co-ops or small busi- 
nesses run by one or two people. 

Political issues are often discussed at 

meetings and several boycotts are ob- 
served. However, because the back- 
grounds and ideas of the workers are var- 
ied, many times it is hard to reach deci- 
sions. It must be pointed out that the 
collective organization and non-hierar- 
chical structure is a political statement in 

With the help and support of the 
UMass community, the People's Market 
and other co-ops can grow and continue 
to offer students an alternative. 




The name Rob Gilbert strikes fear in the hearts of 
most Cosmic Wimpout players. As the, reigning 
World Champion of Cosmic Wimpout, he has been 
nearly undefeatable for two years. Yet, I was deter- 
mined to do just that at the Third Annual Cosmic 
Wimpout Tournament held April 20 at the Bluewall. 

Cosmic Wimpout is a dice game brought from the 
logging camps in Eugene, Oregon, by two "travelers" 
about four years ago. Today, it is played in over 
thirty states as well as in Japan, Australia, and Eng- 
land. But no where is it as popular as at UMass, 
where the tournament has been held in the Bluewall 
since 1976. 

"There is something about the Valley that attract- 
ed us," said Snorky Maverick, one of the original 
players. "It's sort of a tradition now. Amherst is our 
spiritual home." 

Everybody who is anybody in wimpout was at the 
tournament. I put down my fifty cents entrance fee 
and met my first round opponents, Bart and Peter. 
While we played, we talked about — what else? - 
Cosmic Wimpout. 

Bart told<me that he and his friends play their own 
way. They play to 1000, but take compulsory bong 
hits when passing 250, 500, and 750. One of the good 
things about Wimpout is that you can play any way 
you want. People have used all sort of new rules to 
play by and have developed different styles of play. 
Some spin around to roll, some jump in the air. Some 
seek out mountain tops or caves for their games. I 
personally like playing in the shower . . . 

The games went by fast. To reach the second 
round, one had to win three games out of 300. After 
two games, I had won one. Then in the third game, I 
rolled a Freight Train! Mathematically, the chances 

of rolling f ive-of-a-kind on any one roll is 46,656 to I. 
That feat earned me 200 points, a leather pouch for 
my dice, and a first round victory. I was on my way! 

All around me I was hearing shouts of ecstacy and 
moans of defeat from the 200 people who came to 
play Wimpout. I could easily see that Wimpout brings 
out the crazy element in people. It also brings out the 
greedy element. In Wimpout, one can keep rolling as 
long as the player scores. If they don't score on a roll, 
they loose all the points for that roll. Therefore, the 
smart Wimpout player knows when to stop. 

"It's like life," said Champion Gilbert. "The more 
you try to win, the more you have to lose. You can't 
want to win. You can't be greedy." 

Alas, in the end my greed won out. I was knocked 
out of the tournament in the third round by a rookie 
who rolled two Freight Trains in the tournament, an 
unprecedented feat. I kept repeating to myself the 
old adage, "Wimpout players do not cry." 

My conqueror was, in turn, conquered by a might- 
ier player. And the hundred dollars eventually went 
to an expert Wimpout player by the name of Gary 
Ginsberg. However, Gary had one game left to play, 
the Championship match with Rob Gilbert. That was 
held the next day on WMUA. 

Of course, age and experience were just too much 
for Gary to handle. In a very exciting match, broad- 
cast live on the radio, Rob Gilbert became the Unde- 
feated Cosmic Wimpout Champion of the World. 

As for myself, I have an entire year to practice up 
for the next tournament. I still play every day, and I 
keep my dice under a pyramid when not in use . . .

The Strategy Games Club at UMass 
is dedicated to the idea that any form 
of competition can be fun. Thus, any 
type of game or activity with a con- 
flict nature is welcome. The members 
of the Club have dozens of kinds of 
games ranging from sports games such 
as Strat-O-Mat Baseball to such con- 
flict games as "War in the East", a 

World War II game. A typical meeting 
will find anything from a game of whist 
(a form of bridge) to a giant tactics 
scenario, a miniature combat situation. 
The Club is not made up of a certain 
major nor of a special interest group. 
We have people of all types of studies, 
majors, etc. There is no financial obli- 
gation to the club and the only policy 

asked of the members is a true desire 
to share their game materials with ev- 
eryone. A new member could enter 
empty-handed and there would defi- 
nitely be a game he could play or at 
least someone who would be happy to 
teach it to him or her. 

Fencing is an art and a sport. During the 
summer of '77 I decided to play Zorro and 
check out Fencing 1. It proved to be a valuable 
lesson in stamina and skill. Mere desire was not 
enough to make a successful fencer. Hard work 
and natural ability are required. 

The foil, a sword with a rubber tip, is the 
practice weapon that is taught at UMass. The 
training consists of teaching fencers distance, 
attacks, and defense. Target areas are only the 
torso. The epee and saber use the entire body 
as target. They differ in that epee scores by 
thrusts, and point contact, which is similar to 
the foil. The saber allows both thrusts and cuts 
or slashes on any part of the body. 

The fall semester of '78 will be the first time 
UMass will compete against others in this 
sport. The club consists of novices at the foil, 
fencers with under two years of experience, 
and a few people with ability in epee and saber. 
With our large student population many 
fencers must be around the school and to be a 
success talent is always needed.

The goal of the UMass Sport Parachute Club, which has been an 
active RSO group for many years, is to introduce and promote 
sport parachuting within the Five College Community. Students 
and faculty at the Five Colleges are offered the chance to partici- 
pate in the sport at about half the cost a commercial parachuting 
center would charge. The club has its own parachute gear which is 
available for use by club members at no cost. During good weather 
training is given on a weekly basis by a qualified instructor. First jump 
students are given approximately three hours of intense classroom 
insturction including familiarization with parachute equipment, airplane exits, 
canopy control, landings, and emergency procedures. Next, students go through 
two to three hours of practical ground training at the drop zone at Turners Falls 
Airport. They rehearse exits using an airplane mock-up, and also practice malfunc- 
tion procedures and landings. Following the ground training (weather permitting) 
the jumpmaster takes the student up 2800 feet to make the first jump. After the jump 
students are critiqued on their performance by the jumpmaster and is given an 
official first jump certificate as a memento of the accomplishment. 
Sport Parachuting is very safty oriented; students must display adequate 
proficiency at each level of progression throughout student status before 

(^ they are allowed to go on to the next experience. At least five static line 
^m jumps (where the chute is automatically opened) are required before 
^ students are allowed to make freefall jumps. 

On the last three static line jumps students practice pulling a dummy 
ripcord to insure that they will pull the ripcord for themselves when they 
make freefall jumps. The students' first freefall is a three second delay 
which is followed by progressively longer freefalls along with maneuvers 
such as turning and horizontal movement. Throughout the student pro- 
gression, the novice parachutist is closely supervised by United States 
Parachute Association certified jumpmasters. 
Other club activities include parties as well as intersession trips to Florida 

For Several weekends through 
the sifprner of 1978 stalwart indi- 
viduali^have been trekking up to 
the V^ite Mountains of New 
Hamp^ire to contribute their 
time ^r the construction of a 
cabin |n the woods. This cabin 
was jimt aifdream until the Fall of 
1977 ^hen an eleven member 
panel was formed to research the 
proble|ns of buying land and 
buildir^ S- cabin. After numerous 
land-search expeditions, a site in 
Bethlegem. New Hampshire, was 

chosen. Money problems came up imme- 
diately. The Undergraduate Student Sen- 
ate was consulted with the hope of re- 
ceiving $90CX); the club was allowed 
$6000. By working at Spring Concerts, 
holding raffles, and other fund raising 
events, the money was raised. 

Construction began in Jtine of 1978 with 
the clearing of the land arid the hauling in 
of materials. A parking^ot w^ built at the 
base of the mountain, thef oundation laid, 
and the framework went up. Progress 
through the summer ^||Kf'<^? ^"^ finally 
the end was in sight. SBh^eginning of 

September '78 the cabin had its sides, 
flooi*, and roof completed. 

The basic measurements of the cabin 
are 16 by 40 feet, with a sleeping loft 
above the main floor. Heating is tg be 
sup||ied by two wood burning stoves. The 
cabm is for use of the entire University 
conT|mjnity, with members of the Outinfe 
Clu^naving priority. A larg^^urnout is 
exp^ted when the cabin is officially 
opened in October/November 1978. 

It's not whether you win or 
lose, but how you play the 



It ended as it began. Way back on Sep- 
tember 2nd a quarterback named Leamon 
Hall threw five touchdown passes to lift 
Army to a 34-10 win over the UMass foot- 
ball team. On November 26 a quarterback 
named Mike Rieker threw four touchdown 
passes to end Minutemen hopes of a na- 
tional Division II title as he led his Lehigh 
teammates to a 30-23 win. 

Although they lost the play-off game, 
the fall of 1977 was a season to remember. 
The Yankee Conference title was back in 
Amherst. A high finish in the final Divi- 
sion II poll came their way. An eight game 

winning streak sandwiched between losses 
to Army and Boston College was capped 
by a 19-6 win over New Hampshire for the 

They had New England coach of the 
year Dick MacPherson who left UMass in 
January to accept an assistant coaching 
job with the NFL's Cleveland Browns. 
They had a determined quarterback 
named Mike Fallon who recieved honors 
for his leadership and achievements on the 
field. They also had one of the best rushing 
defenses in the country. 

Even though the season ended on a sour 
note many things stood out from the year 
the Beanpot returned to UMass: 

— An offense that could put points on 

the board. For example, the Minutemen 
annihilated Youngstown State, 54-13 as 
Fallon threw five touchdown passes. 

— An interception return by Steve Le- 
May for 100 yards and a touchdown put 
the finishing touches on a 41-16 win over 
Boston University. 

— In a regionally televised win over 
Harvard, a side line run by Dennis Dent 
scored the winning touchdown that high- 
lighted the 17-0 victory. 

— A 37-6 win over Rhode Island in 
which Fallon again took command by 
throwing four touchdown passes. 

— And finally the 19-6 New Hampshire 
win with which the Minutemen brought 
the Beanpot back to the University. Three 


Dave Crosdale interceptions, the slaugh- 
tering of Bill Burnham, a miracle punt by 
John Romboli, the touchdown run by 
Hank "the tank" Sareault, and the game- 
clinching touchdown pass to Romboli 
were the memorable moments of the 

^ The 1977 Minuteman team stood out 
naturally, but so did the individual players: 

— The offensive line which provided 
exceptional blocking for the I formation. 

— Kevin Cummings return from knee 
surgery to reestablish himself as the top 
reciever on the team. 

— John Gladchuk, another wide receiv- 
er, made catch after catch with his sure 

— Billy Coleman ran through opposi- 
tion often enough to gain 824 yards. 

— Sareault provided the perfect com- 
pliment to Coleman from his fullback po- 

— Dent broke many a game open with 
his open field running and blazing speed. 

— Phil Puopolo wrapped up quarter- 
backs and running backs with equal 

— John Willis also startled the opposi- 
tion with a strong pass rush and a hunk 
against the run. 

— Linebacker Joe McLaughlin made a 
made a habit of devouring opposing ball 

— Peter McCarty, the defensive leader, 

played his usual outstanding brand of de- 
fense on the field. 

For all their efforts the Minutemen were 
selected for the Division II play-offs, only 
to lose to Lehigh, which eventually won 
the national title. 

For the 1978 season the Minutemen 
have moved up to a new NCAA classifica- 
tion, Division I AA. Hopefully the high 
caliber performances of the fall 1977 sea- 
son will continue into the future.

Men's Soccer 

Finishing the season with an overall 
record of 10-5, the 1977 edition of the 
UMass soccer team set a new record for 
wins in a single season as it churned its 
way to a third place tie in the Yankee 
Conference. In addition, the Minute- 
men were selected to play in the ECAC 
Regional Tournament, where they were 
defeated by Adelphi University 1-0. 

"It was a very gratifying season al- 
though we were passed up for a berth in 
the New England Division One Tour- 
nament," said UMass Coach Russ 
Kidd. "I have to give most of the credit 
for this year's success to the seniors for 
the leadership they provided." The sen- 
iors that Kidd spoke of are: Andy 
Moore, Willie Sorenson, Ed Niemec, 
Larry Aronson, and goaltender Mark 

While the seniors formed the back- 

bone of the team, freshmen Tasso 
Koutsoukos and junior Joel Mascolo 
provided the flashy scoring power that 
helped the Minutemen set a new record 
for goals in a single season (36). Kout- 
soukos led in scoring with 13 goals and 
3 assists while Mascolo notched 7 goal§ 
and 7 assists to tie the UMass record 
for assists in a single season. 

Defensively the Minutemen relied on 
goaltender Hogdon, Aronson, juniors 
Mike St. Martin and Pat Veale, and 
sophomore Mark Vassolotti to clear the 
UMass zone of attacking forwards. 

"If it wasn't for the three straight 
losses in the middle of the season to 
Vermont, Harvard, and Boston U., we 
would have probably gained a berth in 
the New England's and gained some 
national recognition," summed up 


Women's Soccer 

r Women's soccer at UMass began in the 
fall of 1976, and consisted of fourteen 
members who met occasionally to scrim- 
mage. The second season for the soccer 
club in the fall of 1977 was totally differ- 
ent. A sign-up sheet revealed that seventy 
women were interested in playing, but 
many found that they couldn't meet the 
time commitment and weren't able to par- 
ticipate. The first practice began with fifty 
women and volunteer coach Louis Ma- 
cedo, who was later assisted by Rick Gal- 
lipo and Rick Zanini. 

In its second week of practice, the wom- 
en learned that they had received RSO 
funding, and the scheduling of games was 
started. The team used the RSO funding, 
club dues, and money from the athletic 
department to buy uniforms, which many 
team members recognized as a positive in- 
dication that the team was here to stay. 

The women's soccer club kicked off its 
season with a victory over Smith College. 

The success continued as the team kept, 
improving. Consecutive victories over 
Mount Holyoke (two), Dartmouth, and 
Boston College proved that the soccer clubi 
could indeed play competitive soccer oni 
the collegiate level. The winning streak 
ended at the Tufts Tournament, with two 
losses in one day. 

The team got back on the track the fol- 
lowing week by tying Springfield College 
in a tough game. The next competition 
which the team faced was a three-team 
tournament held at UMass against the 
University of New Hampshire and 
UConn. UMass took the tournament by 
winning all three of its games, playing 
UConn once and the University of New 
Hampshire twice. The team closed out its 
successful season a week later with a 3-0 
victory over UConn on their home field, 
tallying a final record of eleven wins, two 
losses, and one tie. 



In September, as they prepared for the 
season's opener, it looked to be a building 
year for the UMass women's volleyball 
team. Only four members of the final ros- 
ter had any varsity experience. The team 
consisted mostly of sophomores and fresh- 
women. It was only Diane Thompson's 
second season as head coach and just the 
third year that the University had fielded a 
volleyball team. 

After struggling through a rocky first 
half, the Spikers came of age in the last 
third of the 1977 season and finished with 
an impressive record of 11 wins and 13 
losses. Although the team didn't reach the 
.500 mark, their victory total was the best 
for any volleyball team in the sport's brief 
history at UMass. 

At the outset of the season. Coach 
Thompson said the key to the team's suc- 

cess would be how well they communicat- 
ed with each other on the floor during 
their matches. The communication wasn't 
evident in the early going and the team's 
inexperience was obvious as they repeated- 
ly failed in the clutch, dropping their first 
three matches to UNH, Vermorit, and 
Bridgewater State. 

In their fourth match of the season, the 
spikers showed flashes of brillance, push- 
ing a powerful Southern Connecticut team 
to the five game limit before dropping 
their fourth straight match. 

The team finally captured their first 
wins versus Salem State and Northeas- 
tern. But then they suffered through an- 
other streak of inconsistency and after 
eleven games had only two victories. 

The spikers doubled their win total by 
victimizing UMaine (Orono) and Univer- 
sity of Bridgeport on their way to a second 
place finish in a quad match. 

Again they suffered a minor relapse into 
their inconsistent habits and dropped their 
next two matches. Fifteen games into the 

season, their record stood at four wins, 
eleven losses. 

It was at this point that things began to 
jell for the squad as they won five out of 
their next six matches. The wins not only 
gave the team's confidence a boost but 
also kept alive the dream of a .500 season, 
the team's goal. 

The dream ended as the spikers lost a 
five game match (the last game going into 
overtime) to UConn leaving their record 
at nine and thirteen with two matches left 
to play. 

Before the team's final tri-match, 
Thompson informed the squad that their 
application for a slot in the state volleyball 
tournament had been rejected. 

Although the season was over for all 
practical purposes, the team refused to 
just play out the slate. Instead, the women 
came up with one of their strongest perfor- 
mances of the season, defeating Westfield 
State and Keene State without losing a 
game on their way to a first place finish in 
the tri-match.

Field Hockey 

The field hockey team was the most suc- 
cessful team in the fall season. Under sec- 
ond year Coach Judith Davidson, the 
team, solid with veterans and boulstered 
with second year varsity players, stretched 
a season of fourteen games to a school 
record of twenty-two, traveling over 3,500 
miles in the process. 

The stickers swept through New Eng- 
land competition and climaxed its season 
by placing seventh in the National play- 
offs in Denver, Colorado. 

It was an experienced team with a new 
attitude as it started its season differently 
by beating perennial power Springfield 
College 1-0. Behind Cheryl Meliones goals 
and Kathy Gipps shutouts, the stickers 
beat seven other teams in a row before 
tasting defeat and ending the regular sea- 
son with a 8-2-4 record. 

From there, it was on to the Northeast 

Intercollegiate Championships 
at Harvard University. Lynsie 
Wickman, Sue Kibling, and 
Laura O'Neil scored game 
winning goals as UMass beat 
Maine, Dartmouth, and 
Springfield again to advance to the finals 
for its fourth game in two days. A loss to 
Connecticut in the finals kept UMass from 
a Northeast Championship but not from 
qualifying for the Nationals in Denver. 
Coach Davidson and fourteen players ar- 
rived in Denver seeded thirteenth among 
sixteen of the nation's top teams. All the 
enthusiam for a championship was quickly 
abandoned as the stickers suffered an 
opening 2-0 loss to Deleware. 

But the offense came alive in its next 
two games, beating Arizona and Bemidji 
State 4-1 in each game. Coach Davidson 
said that the wins were "the best field 
hockey played by any team at the Cham- 

A 1-0 loss to sixth ranked Connecticut 
ended the season for the stickers, and 
placed them seventh. 

The long season was a culmination of 
four years of hard work of six seniors, Judy 
Kennedy, Ginger Bulman, Cheryl Me- 
liones, Sue Kibling, Kelley Sails, and 
Kathy Gipps, and each contributed to its 
success. Offense players Kennedy, Bulman 
Kibling, and Meliones scored important 
goals, while defensive back Sails added 
one in the Nationals but, along with 
sweeper Gayle Hutchinson and goalie 
Gipps, was mainly responsible for the 
team's strongest point, its defense. Gipps 
recorded nine shutouts over the three 
month season, with a .81 goals against 
average, proving her as one of the nation's 
best at her position. 

Another valuable aspect of the seniors 
which cannot be measured was the win- 
ning attitude taught to the "younger play- 
ers" as they carry on a successful tradition. 
Julie McHugh, Julie Hall, Sue Kreider, 
Laurel Walsh, and Laura O'Neil each 
contributed and improved with the added 
experience, while Lynsie and Jody Wick- 
man, along with Gayle Hutchinson com- 
bine as three top New England players.

Men's Cross-Country 

"It's been a long time fiMe we last 
brought home the silverware," said 
UMass head Coach Ken O'Brien as he 
clutched the twenty pound IC4A cham- 
Ipionship trophy, emblematic of the best 
college and university cross country team 
in the East. One week later, O'Brien and 
peven members of; the squad took the 
i'cross country" trip to Spokane, Washing- 
ton, for the NCAA championships, where 
UMass finished as the 19th best team in 
the country, and two All- American honors 
were garnered. 

Junior co-captian Mike Quinn, and ju- 
nior transfer from Providence College, 
Stetson Arnold, were accorded All- Ameri- 
can status for having finished in the top 
field of fifty. Quinn's 16th spot earned him 
the honor foj,the second consecutive year, 

while Arnold, absent for two years, was 
honored for the second time with the 23rd 
overall spot. 

Besides stand-outs Quinn and Arnold, 
the team was deep and talented. Senior 
captain Frank Carroll, junior Kevin 
McCusker, junior Louis Panaccione, and 
brothers Tom and Matt Wolff helped the 
harriers compile a 9-2 dual meet season. 
The only loses were to Providence College 
and the University of New Hampshire, 
but O'Brien's men achieved their eighth 
straight Yankee Conference title, a strong 
second place finish in the New Englands, 
the IC4A Eastern title, and a 19th overall 
place in the country.

iVomen's Cross-Country 

Coach Ken O'Brien's women's cross 
country team entered its season with great 
expectations and the resources to carry 
them out. O'Brien had brought in a new 
coach, nationally known distance runner 
Charlotte Lettis, a former UMass runner, 
to coach the women. 

To do the legwork, three seniors were 
returning, along with three other letter 
winners. A promising group of fresh- 
women runners were also enrolled, which 
led Lettis to comment after the first meet 
of the season, "We'll be a better team than 
last year, and definitely as deep." 

When the season's log was checked, the 
Minutewomen had gone undefeated for 
the third year in a row in dual meets and 

had defended their title in the Brandeis 

Although veteran co-captain Jane Wel- 
zel had led the team throughout the regu- 
lar season, when the post-season came, it 
was a freshwoman who stepped out to lead 
the squad. In both the New England meet 
and the Eastern's, frosh Tina Francario of 
Brockton turned in improving and out- 
standing performances. In the NE meet, 
she was eighth, leading the Minutewomen 
to their second consecutive second place 
finish. In the Eastern's, Francario was 
even more impressive, again finishing 
eighth and again leading the women to 
their second consecutive third place finish 
in that meet. 

"I haven't peaked yet," said the lithe 
harrier after the final race of the season, 
"and I don't think I ever have - the season 
always ends." That certainly bodes well 
for the next three years of UMass women's 
cross country. 

The consistent Welzel was the second 
UMass harrier across the line in both 
meets, completing an impresive career at 
UMass. Ably rounding out the top seven 
in the post-season meets and during the 
season were senior co-captain Sue Swartz, 
junior Debbie Farmer, sophomore Barb 
Callanan and frosh Priscilla Wilson and 
Linda Welzel.

Men's Basketball 

"Just couldn't stop when the spark got 


That was taken from "Disco Inferno", a 
song from Saturday Night Fever, a movie 
which enjoyed great success when the 
Minutemen were in basketball action from 
the end of November to the end of March. 
And yet, that song fits the 77-78 edition 
of Coach Jack Leaman's squad as when 
"the spark got hot", the Lea-men were 
invincible, knocking off highly touted 
Holy Cross, Villanova, George Washing- 
ton and Pittsburgh, while losing to Provi- 
dence by a single point. 

But the minutemen's season-ending 
spark turned toward frostbite as they fell 
victim to less-than-formidable UConn, 
Maine and New Hampshire and had a 
disappointing showing against Duquesne 
in the EAA playoffs. UMass finished with 
a 15-12 (5-5 EAA) record. 
It was a year of many trials. 
On January 17th, the Minutemen were 
emotionally recovering from a literal near 
death situation. Four hours after a deject- 
ed Lea-men squad lost in embarassing 
fashion to UConn, the roof of the Hart- 
ford Civic Center caved in. 

Then, on February 7th, just a few days 
after UMass had finished its intersession, 
the entire state was bracing itself for the 
snowstorm of the decade. 

As a result of the blizzard, Leaman's 
squad had to play nine games in the space 
of 16 days. Six came within a span of seven 
days. Pure NBA stuff. 

Physically, Leaman needed all the men 
he could suit up due to the Asian flu, 
which caused the majority of the campus 
to flood the infirmary. Mike Pyatt, Brad 
Johnson, Jay Stewart and Mark Haymore 
were all struck with the illness. 

Added to that was All-New England, 
Connecticut Classic MVP, EAA and 
ECAC Division I player of the week Alex 
Eldridge injuring knee ligaments and thus 
missing three games and being used spar- 
ingly in the EAA championships. 

But the Minutemen displayed flashes of 
brilliance. This team certainly had talent, 
charisma, and showmanship. "Boob" (El- 
dridge), "D" (team captain Derick Clai- 
borne), "E-Man" (Eric Williams), 
"Dunk" (Mark Haymore), "Bad Brad" 
(Brad Johnson) along with Mike Pyatt, 
Billy Morrison, Lenny Kohlhaas, Chuck 
Steveskey and Tom Witkos all made con- 
tributions to this team. 

The good times. Yes, there were some. 
Certainly the game-ending 30 foot bomb 
by Williams to upset, nationally-ranked 
Holy Cross; the complete domination of a 
Villanova squad which eventually lost in 
the quarterfinals of the NCAA tourna- 
ment; the 8-0 record in the month of De- 
cember which climaxed in the taking of 
the UConn Classic; and solid victories 
over George Washington and Pittsburgh 
all were moments to remember. 

Statistically, it was a very good year for 
the senior-laden UMass squad. The New 
York trio of Pyatt, Claiborne and Eldridge 
were quite productive as they broke five 
UMass records. 

Pyatt broke Julius Erving's career scor- 
ing record of 1370 total points on Feb. 18 
and hit a blistering 28 in the final game of 
the season against Duquesne. The 6'-6" 
senior hit 13 of 17 shots in that game and 
finished with 1503 career points. 

Claiborne, solid and consistent, set the 
record for most games played in a career 
(107, breaking the old record of 83) and 
most consecutive games played (91, break- 
ing the old record of 79). 

Against New Hampshire, Claiborne hit 
for his 1000th point, giving UMass two 
1000-point guards in the same backcourt. 
Claiborne scored 1033 points in his four- 
year career. 

Undoubtedly, 1978 was Eldridge's best 
year. He now holds the record for most 
assists in one year (174) and most assists in 
a career (518). He scored a career total of 
1053 points. 

Eldridge was named to the U.S. Basket- 
ball Writers All-New England (District I) 
first team and was twice named to the 
ECAC Division I weekly basketball team 
as co-player of the week. 

Haymore, a transfer from Indiana, 
averaged 14 points a game and set a school 
record for the highest goal percentage in 
one season. For most of the year, Haymore 
led the nation in this category. 

The final loss against Duquesne was 
tough to take but it summed up the season. 
Playing so brilliantly at times and then 
losing momentum, only to regain it and 
then lose it. 

The spark was unable to get hot when 
UMass needed it.

Men's Gymnastics 

With a win over Temple on February 
27, the UMass men's gymnastics team 
ended more than their 1977-78 season. 
The win also brought to a close an era 
which saw some of the finest gymnasts in 
the country compete for UMass. 

Seniors Dave Kulakoff and John For- 
shay were the last of the outstanding com- 
petitors recruited by former coach Tom 
Dunn, who for four years tried to build 
UMass into a national gymnastics power. 
At the end of the season, Coach Dick 
Swetman also left, marking the end of a 
seven year Penn State coaching dynasty 
that also included Dunn and Bob Koenig. 
Swetman will be replaced by UMass grad 
Roy Johnson. 

The team compiled a 6 and 5 record 
during the season, including surprising 

wins against Springfield and Temple. 
Those wins were the first for UMass 
against those in three years. The Spring- 
field win also gave UMass its highest point 
total of the season: 193.25. 

The finale of the season was a fifth place 
tie with Springfield in the Easterns. Kula- 
koff was upset in the individual competi- 
tion, losing his pommel horse title to Tony 
Williams of Southern Conn. John Forshay 
finished seventh in the floor exercises. 

Kulakoff ended his college gymnastics 
carrer with an eleventh place finish in the 
NCAA Division One Championships. He 
missed making the top eight finalists by 
only .15. "I'm just glad that I hit both 
routines and scored as well as I did," said 
Kulakoff afterwards.

Il/omen's Basketball 

For the UMass women's basketball 
team, 1978 can best be summed up in one 
word: frustrating. The frustration began in 
September, when starting center and co- 
captain Lu-ann Fletcher tore a cartilidge 
in her knee in a pick-up game, forcing her 
to miss most of the season. 

It continued in January, when starting 
guard Sue Henry left the team due to aca- 
demic problems, and finally, the climax of 
it all came in early March, when Provi- 
dence ended the Minutewomen's post sea- 
son hopes by taking a 61-67 verdict in the 
finals of the Eastern regionals. Thus, a 
season which had once looked as if it 
might have been of vintage quality was 
reduced to a series of might-have-beens 
and what-ifs. Not helping the situation 
was a bizarre schedule which saw UMass 
play only three cage games. However, the 
fact that UMass was able to finish the 
regular season at 13-6 and be chosen for 
the playoffs was testimony to the ability of 

the Minutewomen to adapt to some tough 

In particuliar, sophomore Sue Peters, 
shown at her guard spot, set a regular sea- 
son scoring record with over 400 points, 
and also established a single game record 
with thirty-three points against Vermont 
in early December. 

In addition, co-captain Cheryl Carey 
lent a steadying influence with her savvy 
and general hustle, while freshwomen 
Cathy Harrington, Julie Ready, Mary 
Hallaren, and transfer junior Jen Parker 
also displayed potential. 

Highlights included a season-starting 
five game streak, a one point loss to St. 
John's in overtime (but not before Henry 
heaved in a last second, mid-court shot at 
the end of regulation to tie it), and a thir- 
teen point win over archrival Springfield.

Women's Gymnastics 

In the last seven years, under the coach- 
ing expertise of head coach Virginia Evans 
and a variety of assistants, the women's 
gymnastics team has established itself as a 
national gymnastics power. 

In 1973 the team captured the Associ- 
ation for Intercollegiate Athletics for 
Women (AIAW) gymnastics champion- 
ship. In 1974 and 1975 the team won the 
Eastern title but could not recapture the 
national crown. This season the team fin- 
ished third at the EIAW championships 
and eighth in the national championships. 

Evans attributes the team's finish to an 
unrelenting flu and several persistent in- 
juries which kept the starting line ups in 
constant rotation. Despite these problems, 
the team finished the season with a 8-1 
record and entered the nationals seeded 
twelfth. UMass also has the distinction of 
being the only team in the country to beat 
national champions Penn State during the 
regular season. 

Seniors Stephanie Jones, Susan 
Cantwell, and Debra Law com.peted for 
the last time for the gymwomen at the 
AIAW championships in April in Seattle. 

Despite suffering from a fractured rib 
and a sprained hip, Jones was the top 
UMass competitor, finishing thirteenth in 
the all-around competition. 

Jones strongest season came in 1976-77 
when she set two UMass records on the 
uneven parallel bars and balance beam. By 
finishing second on the bars, fifth on the 
beam, and tying for eighth in the all 
around, she qualified for the World Uni- 
versity Game Trials. 

Cantwell has been a highly visible mem- 
ber of the team in her four years at 
UMass. As a freshwoman, she was named 
an Ail-American for her contribution to 
the tearh's victory in the Easterns. Since 
then she has been a consistently strong 
contribution to the team's success. 
Cantwell was one of the healthiest gym- 
nasts this season and culminated her four 
years of competition by finishing twentieth 
in the all-around competition at the na- 

Law was also a member of the 1975 
eastern championship team. She concen- 
trated on the bars this year and was one of 
those specializing gymnasts who don't 
make headlines but are a very important 
part of the team's continuing success. 

Freshwomen Karen Clemente, Coleen 
Thorton, and Debbie Smith had lots of 
opportunity to compete and gain exper- 
ience this season. Clemente was one of 
four regular all-around performers and 
improved steadily throughout the season. 

Thorton was sidelined with a back injury 
but appeared to be regaining stength late 
in the season. Smith has all-around poten- 
tial but specialized on the floor for most of 
the season. 

Sophomores Karen Hemburger, Laurie 
Knapp, and Kim Whitelaw also provided 
strong performances throughout the year. 
Hemberger narrowly lost the Eastern 
vaulting title to national all-around cham- 
pion Ann Carr as she finished just .05 of a 
point behind Carr. Knapp specialized on 
the beam and helped stabilize the team's 
efforts on one of the most difficult events 
in sport. Whitelaw joined the team after 
the season began but contributed solidly 
on the bars and in vaulting. 

The juniors on the team were those most 
seriously hurt by injuries throughout the 
season. Jill Heggie, the top UMass all- 
around competitor in '76-'77, was lost for 
the season when she severely injured her 
knee during the World University Game 
Trials. Jean Anderson tore ligaments in 
her ankle midway through the season and 
sat out further competition. Diane Laur- 
enson was hampered by wrist injuries 
which kept her from competing on the 
floor, her strongest event. Julie Myers and 
Cheryl Morrier had trouble shaking the 
flu and were out for several weeks. 

The team will certainly miss its seniors, 
but Evans is optimistic that next year will 
be another strong one for the Minutewo-

Men's Swimmina 

Many months of grueling training and 
self-sacrifice culiminated in the most suc- 
cessful season the UMass men's swim 
team has ever had. 

Coached by three-time former Olympi- 
an Bei Melamed, the "mer"-men proved 
they could compete with any team in New 

Their season's record was a solid 7-2, 
including notable victories over Tufts, 
Amherst, and Vermont. The only defeats 
came against the University of Connecti- 
cut (the closest meet of the year, a single 
point loss on the last race of the meet), and 
Maine, the eventual New England cham- 

Following the completion of the regular 
.season, twelve of the team's most qualified 
members represented UMass in the NE 
Championships. About 250 swimmers and 
divers from over twenty-five colleges and 
universities competed in the three-day 

UMass finished a respectable ninth in 
the team race, but more significantly accu- 
mulated a startling ten new school records. 

Seniors Russ Yarworth and Tom Ste- 
vens, along with Jim Leland, Tom Nowak 
and Harry Fulford caused nearly a com- 
plete revision of the record book. 

Leading the onslaught was Captain 
Yarworth, who made a habit of breaking 
records wherever he went all season long. 
Yarworth climaxed his UMass career with 
four records in his final four races. 

He literally "did it all" as he displayed 
in the 200 and 400 yard individual medleys 
(IM). The most demanding of all events, 
the IM combines four separate strokes; the 
backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and 
freestyle. His other records came in the 
200 yard butterfly and jointly in the 800 
yard relay with Leland, Steb Stevens, and 

Also giving an inspired farewell perfor- 
mance was Stevens, who broke school 
marks in the 50, 100, and 200 yard free- 
style events. 

Leland etched his name in the record 
book with his performances in the 100 and 
200 yard backstroke. 

Among other valuable members of the 
team, somewhat overshadowed by the slew 
of records set in the NE meet, were the 
divers: Jim Antonino, Dan Conley and 
Dan Anthony. Their consistently excellent 
performances from both the one and three 
meter boards determined the outcome of 
many meets. 

Freshman Bill Tyler established himself 
as the squad's top 200 and 500 yard free- 
styler, but was unable to compete in thg 
NE meet due to illness. Departing senidf 
Dennis Buss also proved a valuable asset 
all season long. 

Not to be overlooked was the guiding 
inspiration of Coach Melamed, whose 
dedication characterized his past Olympic

^ V/omen's Swimming 

The women's swimming and diving 
team ended a tough season with a 6-7-1 
record and a surprising seventh place fin- 
ish in the New Englands. Six swimmers 
also qualified to go to the Easterns, but 
could not make the trip because of the flu. 

Under the direction of first-year coach 
Jim Nunnelly, the team worked from Sep- 
tember to February, including three weeks 
of training during intersession. This year's 
squad consisted primarily of freshwomen, 
but everyone worked hard and improved. 
Co-captains Lise Hembrough and Rachel 
Mack provided spirit and leadership, as 
well as good swimming. Although the 
Minutewomen just missed breaking the 
.500 mark, many of the twenty swimmers 
set personal records, and many team 
marks also fell. 

UMass started its season off on a prom- 
ising note by winning its first four meets, 
defeating Smith, Mount Holyoke, Wil- 
liams, and the University of Vermont. But 
tougher competition soon came along, and 
the Minutewomen lost to UConn, Maine, 
Yale, and Harvard, while only beating 
Central Connecticut before intersession. 

After three weeks of swimming twice a 

day during the semester break, times 
dropped and the Minutewomen swamped 
Bridgewater in their first meet of 1978, 
but that was their final victory. The season 
ended with losses to Springfield and 
Southern Connecticut, and two meets 
were cancelled due to the storm in Febru- 

Leading the team in scoring were sopho- 
mores Kathy Jurcik and Deb Schwartz. 
Schwartz also set school records in the 200 
free, 500 free, and 400 individual medley, 
and was UMass' top individual performer 
in the New Englands with a third place 
finish in the 200 butterfly. 

Other top performers were freshwomen 
Kim Murphy and Celia Walsh, sisters 
Maryanne and Meegan Primavera, and ju- 
nior Lynn Lutz, who set new school re- 
cords in the grueling 1650 free and the 
1000 free. Freshwoman Cheryl Robdau 
was voted the most improved swimmer. 

Also adding points were divers Suzi 
Strobel, Kris Bullard, and Leslie Dun- 
phey, who were coached by Doug For-

The UMassltflPi's ski team contin- 
ued its winning ways by winning the 
Osborn Divisional Championship for 
the ninth year in a row with a 39-1 
record in regular season competition 
against Boston College, Northeastern, 
UConn, Amherst, and Plymouth 
State (N.H.). In post season competi- 
tion the team finished fourth out of 
eight teams in league competition and 

finished second in the ^nadian — -pfeomore Bob Grout were tremen- 
American Invitationals at White Face dously improved and each had a great 

Mt. in New York. 

The outstanding ski racer for 
UMass was Dale Maynard, who com- 
pleted his career with the best overall 
four year performance of any ski racer 
to attend UMass during the sixteen 
year tenure of Coach Bill MacCon- 
nell. Junior Scott Prindle and so- 

year. John AUard spent his junior year 
at Fribourg University in Switzer- 
land, where he trained with the Swiss 
Academic Ski Team and was the lone 
American in the Student World 
Olympics in Czechoslovakia. 

The UMass women's ski team had a 
perfect season, winning every event 
they entered, and ended with a perfect 
54-0 record if you count all the 
American and Canadian teams they 
beat. The women compiled a 40-0 re- 
cord during regular season competi- 
tion against Boston College, Smith, 
UConn, and Merrimack. Post season 
they won the Candian-American Col- 

legiate Invitationals at Whiteface Mt. 
against top-ranking Canadian and 
American teams. 

Stars of the women's team were 
senior Cathy Donovan and juniors 
Kathy Shinnick and Nancy Hayden. 
"These three came in one-two-three in 
more than half the races they entered 
and they made the clean sweep possi- 
ble," head Coach Bill MacConnell 


For the third year in a row the wom- 
en trained with the men's ski team all 
day Monday through Friday from De- 
cember 20 to January 27 during the 
intersession break. The rigorous train- 
ing program again paid off with win- 
ning ski teams for UMass. 


Ice Hockey 

After opening the season with a 4-1 win over New England 
College, the icemen lost five games in a row and the season 
seemed like a lost cause. But early last December something 
happened — the Minutemen snapped their losing streak and at 
the same time realized they could not only play with, but beat 
a Division II powerhouse. UMass knocked off Army by a score 
of 4-0. The Cadets weren't cream puffs, either, as they were a 
team that had compiled an impressive 21-6-1 mark in the 
1976-77 season. 

The Army victory started a hot streak that saw the Minute- 
men win seven, lose two, and tie one. In the streak, the Minute- 
men added two more Division II powerhouses to their list of 
victims — Holy Cross (3-2) and defending Division II champi- 
ons — Merrimack (7-6 in overtime). 

Unfortunately, just as life and a cupcake must come to an 
unhappy end, so did the Minutemen's season. Their 7-2-1 hot 
streak had made believers out of everybody, including Merri- 
mack Coach Thorn Lawler. In fact, the Minutemen were being 
considered for a playoff spot in Division II by the Eastern 
College Athletic Conference. However, the disastrous flu dev- 
astated the team almost as badly as Albert Camus' plague. 
The Minutemen held practice sessions with only six or seven 
players showing up, while the others stayed at home to combat 
the flu that swept the campus in late February. 

Net Result: A team that felt and proved that it could beat 
anybody lost its edge and conditioning, which resulted in four 
straight dismal performances, four consecutive losses, and no 
playoff berth from the EC AC. 

Coach Jack Canniff had some thoughts on his teams 
8-11-1 performance. "After the way we started with a 1- 

5 record, I began to wonder if we would ever turn 
around. But we did turn around and played well. But 
when you lose players (Dean Liacos -hernia, Joey Milan 
- torn ligaments, right knee, Barry Milan - one game 
suspension. Bob White - one game suspension, and Lin- 
coln Flagg - virus) it hurts. We were struck by adversity 
(the flu and injuries to key players) and didn't quit. We 
got better gradually, game by game after the adversity 
hit us, and skated right up until the final buzzer." 

— Michael McHugh 


The Minutemen had the privilege of 
opening the season against three national- 
ly-ranked powers in a quad-match, and 
although the athletes from Rhode Island, 
Michigan and Syracuse did a disservice to 
Coach Dave Amato's legion (UMass lost 
all three meets), one could see the poten- 
tial was there. 

Through the early part of the season, 
Larry Otsuka (134) and John Allen 
(Heavyweight) were the only really solid 
performers. The Minutemen had a chance 
to claim their first win of the season at 
Harvard, but the Crimson eked out a 21- 
20 win. 

This match was also noteworthy in that 
it marked Kevin Griffin's last perfor- 
mance as a Minuteman. The UMass co- 

captain and former NE champion retired 
from the team shortly after to devote more 
time to school. 

Mid-season bright spots were provided 
by Fred Rheault, with a 37 second pin 
against a Maine opponent; Dana Rasmus- 
sen's come from behind win in the closing 
seconds of his 118 pound clash with 
Connecticut's John Rocco; Charley Ri- 
goglioso's flashes of brilliance at 142 

The team won only six meets during this 
rebuilding season, but win number six, a 
30-15 pasting of New Hampshire, proved 
to be a fine tuneup for the New England's. 

UMass had high hopes for the NE's, but 
in the opening seconds of his 134 pound 
match, Otsuka suffered a dislocated shoul- 
der and had to bow out. He had been 
seeded number one in his weight class and 
a showdown between him and URI's Scott 
Arnel in the finals seemed inevitable. Ot- 

suka had beaten Arnel in the semi-finals a 
year earlier, and had also defeated him in 
the early season quad match. 

Freshman heavyweight Allen pinned 
Paul Davis of BU to win a gold medal, 
giving UMass its eighth consecutive 
heavyweight championship, a tradition be- 
gun by George Ireland (1971) and contin- 
ued by Carl Dambman (72-73) and Dennis 
Fenton, the current JV coach (74, 75, 76, 

Other medal winners included Rasmus- 
sen, who took the bronze at 118 pounds 
and Rigoglioso, who won the silver medal 
at 142 by advancing to the finals, where he 
was defeated by two-time defending 
champ Frank Pucino of URL 

Mike Carroll (158) and Co-captain Tim 
Fallon (150) had fourth place finishes.

V/omen's Uerosse 

In only its third year of varsity competi- 
tion, the UMass women's lacrosse team 
showed itself to be the class of the North- 
east by winning the New England title and 
placing third in the country. The Gazelles 
were one of two teams from the Northeast 
which qualified for the national playoffs in 
Virginia. There they beat teams "they wer- 
en't supposed to beat" to finish third in the 
country, with an overall record of 17-1-2, 
which was the second best record of the 
top teams. 

Led by single season record holders 
Judy Kennedy and Jeanne Hackett with 
35 goals, and by a single season record 
playmaker Cari Nickerson with 28 assists, 
the Gazelles ran through an undefeated 
regular season with Rhode Island and Bos- 
ton University being among the eight 
teams to fall. Only ties with Springfield 
College and New Hampshire in the year's 
biggest showdowns kept their record from 
being perfect. 

As a preparation for the New England 
Playoffs, the Gazelles played and won 
three games in a district tournament at 
Smith College. Even the New England 
All-Star team could not cope with UMass 

and goalie Robin Jennings, who played 
some of her best games there. 

In the New England's at Bridgewater, 
UMass popped Bates 18-2, Middlebury 
13-3, and Brown 12-7, to advance to the 
final with Yale. In the championship 
game, UMass lost a 4-1 lead and was 
forced into overtime only to have Judy 
Kennedy score her sixth goal of the two- 
day tournament to win the game and send 
the team to the Nationals. 

Seven seniors opted to miss graduation 
exercises for the first National Champion- 
ships held in Harrisionburg, Virginia. A 
fifth seed was rather low for the Gazelles, 
and they showed that right away by elimi- 
nating fourth seed and host James Madi- 
son College 7-1. 

The team's only loss of the year was to 
top seeded Penn State in the semi-finals. 
The speedy Penn State team went on to 
win the Nationals, with no team coming 
any closer to beating them than UMass. 

In the final game of the year, UMass 
again went into overtime and won 5-4 over 
East Strousbug with Deb Harltey's goal. 

Besides the third place finish, the week- 

end in Virginia was highlighted by the 
placing of center Judy Kennedy to the 
United States National Touring team. 

Coach Frank Garahan, regarded by 
many as one of the finest women's coaches 
in the country, is credited with taking a 
team which was a club team when the 
seniors were freshwomen and turning 
them into national contenders. He, along 
with assistant Mary Murray, took a field 
of eighteen women to the teams finest fin- 
ish in its brief history. They moulded a 
defense of Robin Jennings, Kelly Sails, 
Gayle Hutchinson, Olivia Lovelace, Grace 
Martinelli, and Lisa Methfessel, who kept 
opponents to an average of under four 
goals a game. The offense was bolstered 
by three new players to UMass lacrosse by 
Deb Hartley (33 goals, 16 assists), Eng- 
land exchange student Fiona McAllister, 
and senior Sue Kibling in her first year of 
playing (20 goals, 14 assists). A strong 
bench led by Allyson Toney, Laura 
O'Neil, Kathy Gipps, Jule McHugh, and 
Joan Bulman carried the team in later sea- 
son games.

Men's Lacrosse 

In the sprinffTOff%en's lacrosse team, 
or Garber's Gorillas as they are commonly 
known, turn on the campus as no other 
spring sport can. UMies line "the Hill" 
comfortably, quenching their thirst while 
taking in the game. 

The team got off to a rough start in the 
spring of '78, having to face Cornell in 
their den in UMass' season opener. The 
Big Red — winner of thirty-one straight, 
took number thirty-two, dropping UMass 
17-7. The Gorillas headed to UConn 
shortly thereafter, winning 15-6 and even- 
ing their record at 1-1. This pattern re- 
peated itself — a loss to Syracuse (15-6), 
before Vermont, in its first season as a 
lacrosse team, came to Amherst and got 

fllttende^ by the Gorillas 24-7. With a 2-2 
record, the Gorillas lost to Rutgers, then 
rebounded by beating Boston College 21- 

As the team got used to playing togeth- 
er, they thrilled the hometown crowd with 
back-to-back victories — 13-8 over 
Brown, and 18-11 over Williams. With 
four tough oponents coming up, it ap- 
peared this would tell just how good the 
team was. Hofstra snuck out of here with a 
narrow 14-11 victory, before UMass 
dropped a fired-up UNH squad 8-7. 

In what may have been the toughest 
loss. Army, ranked in the top five at the 
time, pulled out a 12-10 victory. Harvard's 
Crimson were the victims of a one goal loss 

(12-11) in Amherst, which left the UMies 
happy, as it kept UMass atop the New 
England poll. 

A whitewash by UMass in Springfield 
(22-3) enabled players to switch positions, 
and also allowed Brooks Sweet the oppor- 
tunity to set a new UMass record for goals 
scored in one season. 

The season ended against Dartmouth in 
overtime, won by a Harry Comforti sud- 
den-death goal. 

So while the Gorillas didn't make the 
National playoffs, they still finished num- 
ber one in New England, and were ranked 
in the top fifteen in the country — a tri- 
bute to a team with a 9-5 record. 


^ The UMass rugby football club marked 
its 10th anniversary of competition by end- 
ing the 1977-78 season at 6-14, giving the 
club "about a .500 record for that period," 
according to Dr. Richard Laurence, the 
club's faculty advisor. 

The 'A side' (squad) started out well 
with victories over the Berkshire Rugby 
Football Club (RFC) and Dartmouth Col- 
lege, but then "ran into strong club sides 
and got hammered," Laurence said. 

According to Laurence, college teams 
do not usually have the experienced play- 
ers club sides have. "It takes about three 
years to comprehend the complete game, 
but some players can compensate for the 
lack of experience by applying their natu- 
ral athletic ability in certain situations," 
he said. 

UMass defeated a strong Springfield 
club side in the fall, 10-9, halfway through 
the season, but the streak ended with that 
game. Consecutive losses to Providence 
RFC, Holy Cross, Pilgrims RFC and 
UConn in the Yankee Conference Tourna- 
ment closed the first half of play. 


Over intersession, UMass lost three key 
players; Hugh Chester-Jones, Stan Lu- 
boda and Andy Middleton. Recruting new 
players to fill those positions was the main 
concern of Captain Brian Coolbaugh, a 
medical student going on to study at the 
UMass Medical School in Worcester. 

"I guess you could call the second half 
of the season the beginning of a rebuilding 
process, but I think we got some good 
freshmen and sophomores to help us out," 
said Laurence. 

After a pre-season spring trip to play the 
University of Virginia, Maryland and 
George Washington University, the club 
returned home and opened with a win over 
the Berlin Strollers RFC of Berlin, NH. 

A 27-0 loss to the Concord RFC and an 
18-16 win over Dover RFC followed. 

The strong, emotional rivalry of the 
Amherst College-UMass game, played at 
Amherst, "proved to be the best of the 
year in all aspects," Laurence said. Al- 
though Amherst won, 20-18, the victors 
had all they could handle as UMass surged 
in the late minutes, scoring three times. 

Displaying good execution in the Am- 
herst game, UMass quickly reversed its di- 
rection and "hit the lowest point of the 
year," Laurence said, "with two poor per- 
formances against Dartmouth and Berk- 
shire. Two players, senior scrum-half 
Chuck Momnie and hooker Peter Bates, 
were missing from the weekend games. 

"The games really showed how much we 
need those two," Laurence said. 

Three "squeakers" capped the spring 
schedule for the Minutemen. The first, an- 
other victory over Springfield (10-9), en- 
abled the club to qualify for the New Eng- 
land Tournament. A heartbreaking loss to 
the University of New Brunswick (14-12) 
plunged the UMass overall record to 6-13. 

The final game, played in the single 
elimination NE Tournament held at URI, 
saw the Minutemen slip again, 7-4, to Old 

Seniors on the A side included Cool- 
baugh, Momnie, Tom Murray, Kevin Gaf- 
ney and Andy Sirica.

Dizzy Bean's famous saying, "Who 
woulda thunk it?" fit the 1978 UMass 
baseball team's season perfectly. Why? 
Well, on April 17, the Minutemen had an 
8-14 record and appeared to be going no- 
where in a hurry. However, the following 
day Doug Welenc pitched the Minutemen 
to a 5-2 win over Boston College which 
sparked the regular season ending surge 
that saw UMass win twelve out of its last 
seventeen games for a 20-19 record and a 
place in the ECAC District I playoffs. 

And then — magically, wonderfully — 
UMass swept past archrivals Holy Cross, 
Providence, and Fairfield to win the title 
and represent the area in the NCAA play- 
offs. But there the sandfare was muted by 
two straight loses and a quick exit from the 
playoffs MacKenzie Field. 

How to explain? The Minutemen, a 

young team with only five seniors took 
time to mature, but when they did they 
displayed some outstanding individual tal- 
ent, such as: 

— Doug Welenc, rebounded from a 2-2, 
3.77 freshman season to fulfill his poten- 
tial and compile an 8-3, 1.55 mark. With- 
out much doubt, Welenc was the pitcher 
who made the difference. 

— Doug Aylward, a pitcher in presea- 
son plans, was switched to the outfield by 
Coach Dick Berguqist early in the season 
and responded by hitting .407 for the sec- 
ond best batting average in the district. 

— Mike McEvilly, Mr. Consistancy, hit 
.336 with thirty-one RBFs and displayed a 
rifle of an arm in right field. The sopho- 
more was the ultimate clutch player. 

— Leo Kalinowski, a virtual human hit- 
ting machine, batted .320 from his third 
base spot. 

— Dave Olesak, proved himself to be a 
quality catcher with a "don't run on me" 
arm and a .283 batting average. 

— Mark Sulivan, who was out of school 
last year, came back to assume a starting 
role in left field and hit .315. 

— Ed Skribiski, who had to make the 
transiton from second base to short stop, 
recovered from an atrocious start to hit 

— Mike Stockley, underrated and un- 
derappreciated at second, drove in seven- 
teen runs on only twenty-five hits and 
fielded his postion with a natural grace. 
Stockley was also named Most Valuable 
Player in the ECAC playoffs. 

They were an idiosyncratic cast of char- 
acters which blended together well enough 
to fashion UMass' trip to NCAA nirvana. 
Who woulda thunk it, indeed?

The UMass softball team fulfilled its 
expectations in an O'Henry-like manner. 
The ending, which had UMass finishing 
fourteenth nationally, was not a complete 
surprise, however. The Minutewomen cap- 
turing the Eastern Regionals without be- 
ing written off by opponents — before 
peaking — was the amazement. 

With the return of eight starters from 
last year's 16-2 squad, including standouts 
Sue Peters and co-captain Sue DiRocco, 
the Minutewomen appeared destined to 
achieve post-season competition for the 
first time in the teams five-year existance. 

UMass was quickly 4-0, but four errors 
in a Keene State victory were "the lowest 
point of the young season ..." remarked 
Coach Diane Thompson. 

Despite belonging to the undefeated 
ranks, there were internal obstacles: a few 
shaky fielding performances, lack of un- 
tested pitching, and nagging injuries. 
Eight miscues led to the first loss (5-4) — 
in the opener of a doubleheader against 
Eastern Connecticut — and the pattern 

continued as the UMies split with the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire. With seven 
twinbills scheduled, the pitching staff 
needed bolstering. The unexpected sources 
of relief came from Kathy O'Connell, a 
freshwoman, and Trish O'Connor, a trans- 
fer student. Sue Peters, as usual, was bril- 
lant compiling a 6-0 record, 8-1 overall, 
and an ERA of 1.70. Peters led the hitting 
department with a .466 clip, followed by 
second basewoman Rhonda McManus 
with .400 and outfielder/first basewoman 
Kathy Horrigan with .362. 

Injuries generally avoided the hurling 
triad, but plagued their batterymates. A 
typical pre-game scene had co-captain 
Cheryl Meliones' elbow in ice and back-up 
catcher Beth Collins on the sidelines with 
broken fingers. 

While mending its wounds, the team, 8- 
2, was still searching for a top-level perfor- 
mance when a second-half tailspin invaded 
after a 4-3 win over Springfield College. 
Loses to Boston State, the University of 
Rhode Island, Bridgewater, and Southern 


Connecticut were cause for concern. Al- 
though UMass dropped to 12-6 during this 
stretch, mentor Thompson remained con- 
fident in her newly annointed Eastern divi- 
sion qualifiers. 

Sweeping two from Vermont to end the 
regular season, the club glided through the 
tournament in championship form thanks 
to some timely hitting by center fielder 
Carol Bruce. Ticket holders to the Nation- 
als were: Pat Oski, Cheryl Meliones, Carol 
Bruce, Jennifer Parker, Kahy Horrigan, 
Sue DiRocco, Rhonda McManus, Fran 
Cornachioli, Elaine Howie, Gail Carter, 
Beth Collins, Sue Peters, Beth O'Connell, 
Chris Verdini, Kathy O'Connell, assistant 
Coach Jean Lambert, and Coach Diane 

A successful ending to the 
fall season provided the impe- 
tus for a highly successful 
spring season for the men's 
tennis team in 1978. 

The team, under Coach 
Jay Ogden, struggled through 
the regular fall season with a 
2-2 record, but when the 
chips were on the line in the 
season's finale — the Yankee 
Conference Championships 
— the squad came through 
with flying colors, just miss- 
ing an upset over favored 
Boston University by one 

The team was without reg- 
ular number one singles play- 
er Alan Green for much of 
the season, with Jim Barnhart 
and Rick Sharton taking up 
much of the slack caused by 
Green's abscence. 

Freshmen also played a big 
part in the Minutemen's suc- 
cess story, as Mark Huette- 
man, Sergio Strepman and 
Keith Hovland all played 
steady tennis. 

Green and Strepman were 
the only UMass players to 
win first round singles match- 
es in the New England's but 
both went down to defeat 
shortly after.

Sporting a new coach and a rookie first 
singles player, the 1978 women's tennis 
team was dealing with two unknown quan- 

After a 4-4 regular fall season had been 
completed, along with a sixth place New 
England Tournament finish, the team had 
no reason to complain. 

New coach coach Bill Yu predicted his 
charges toughest matches would come 
against Tufts, Dartmouth, Smith and Mt. 

He turned out to be three-fourths right, 
as the Minutewomen were bombarded by 
Tufts (6-1) and Dartmouth (5-2) and did 
only slightly better against Mt. Holyoke 

The team did nip arch-rival Smith Col- 
lege, however, by a 5-4 score. 

Other victories came against Spring- 
field, Southern Connecticut, and Keene 
State College, all of which were romps. 

Amherst Regional High School gra- 
duate Cathy Maher had a successful year 
at the first singles spot. 

Consistent singles play was turned in by 
Carolyn Mooney and Lee Robb, while 
Dawn Minaai and Jennifer Ranz were the 
top doubles combination. 

— Dave Rodman 

Men's Golf 

The UMass men's golf team en- 
joyed a fine fall season under their 
new head coach Ed Vlach. Vlach 
took his young and largely untried 
team to the YanCon title, the New 
England title, the Toski Intercolle- 
giate title, and a sixth place finish in 
'the ECACs. 

The team, which had no seniors in 
its' "lineup, was led by sophomore 
Flynt Lincoln and junior Jimmy 
McDermott. Behind the young but 
experienced co-captains were two ju- 
■' niors (Jeff Orr and Bill Campbell), 
i wo sophomores ^Vic Lahtiene: and 
)uggin), and freshman John 

Weather seemed at times to be as 
big a foe as the other players. Heat 
and rain and a soaked course gave 
the Minutemen a tough time at the 
YanCon tourney, their first tourney 
of the season, but they won by thir- 
teen strokes over Rhode Island. Lin- 
coln collected the lowest individual 
score, a one over par 73. 

They then made it two in a row by 
winning the New Englands. That 
tourney was cut in half because of 
rain. Lincoln missed lowest individ- 
ual score by only one stroke. 

Freshman Lien became the hero 
as it became three in a row. Lien 
helped the team to overcome twenty- 
one other schools in the Toski Inter- 

Once again the rains came but the 
team managed to come in second in 
the ECAC qualifying tourney. 
McDermott took low honors for the 
team this time with a 77. 

For their season finale, the team 
was treated to "simply abominable" 
weather conditions, according to 
Vlach. But still they came in sixth in 
the ECACs although they were 44 
strokes in back of the winners. Lin- 
coln was eight strokes behind the low 

With everyone returning a yei 
older and wiser, the team has high 
hopes of equaling or bettering their 
record. And they have a good chance 
to do it.

iVomen's Crew 

Coach Debbie Ayars charges brought 
UMass women's rowing its best season yet. 
The Varsity boat was undefeated in six 
contests in the spring, and the Second Var- 
sity boat had only one loss during the sea- 
son, to Boston University. The Varsity 
Four gained victories over Mt. Holyoke, 
UNH, and Northeastern. 

At the Eastern Sprints for Women at 
Pittsfield, MA, the Varsity and Junior 
Varsity Eights and Varsity Four all quali- 
fied for the afternoon finals; a first for 
UMass crew. Bad weather forced the can- 
cellation of the finals and prevented the 
boats from competing against the best col- 
legiate competition in the country. 

In recognition of the undefeated season 

and the loss of the Championship race, the 
club administration decided to financially 
assist the Varsity Eight in going to the 
National Championships at Seattle, WA. 
Once there, the women finished eighth out 
of twenty-two. Following the Nationals, 
four members of the UMass squad, Cindy 
Hector, Deb Quinn, Ginny Peebles, and 
Julie Eggleston, were selected to partici- 
pate in a National Development camp at 
San Diego and participated in the U.S. 
Sports Festival at Colorado Springs, 
where Debby and Julie won bronze medals 
in the four. A fifth member of the squad, 
Maureen O'Brien, traveled to the Sports 
Festival in the capacity of manager. 


Men's Track 

Head track Coach Ken O'Brien's opti- 
mism was dealt a severe blow in the winter 
track season when the squad finished a 
disappointing 14th in the New England 
Indoor Championships. When the spring 
campaign of blue skies and warm weather 
had come and gone, however, the track 
and cross country coach had renewed faith 
in the Minutemen's capabilities. 

Highlighting the events which occurred 
in Spring 1978 were performances 
achieved by veterans as well as youth. Joe 
Martens capped off an illustrious college 
track career with a convincing relays vic- 
tory in the 440 as well as a fourth place 
finish in the New England Outdoor Cham- 
pionships in the same event. His outdoor 
races complemented his winter Yankee 
Conference performance of second in the 
440. These final memories Martens will 
rest under his belt alongside conference 
high jump and 440 yard titles garnered in 
previous years. 

Junior Kevin McCusker hurdled all ob- 
stacles in his way for another UMass Re- 
lays 3000 meter steeplechase crown, as he 
successfully defended his title. McCusker 
went on to wrestle runner-up laurels in the 
New Englands in the same event. 

Mark Healy was another fortunate ath- 
lete to snare a top prize. Healy inscribed 
his name amongst the winners at the 
UMass Relays with his final college victo- 
ry occurring in the 440 intermeditate hur- 

Trailblazing a path for the Minutemen 
freshmen this year was Don Dowden. In 
his first year displaying the maroon and 
white, Dowden captured an indoor confer- 
ence high jump crown, as well as similiar 
honors in the UMass Relays. During his 
first year he also allowed room for a 
UMass outdoor record at 6'10". 

On May 14th, the University proudly 
hosted the New England Outdoor Cham- 
pionships on the Llewelyn Derby Track. 
After the forty-one teams nailed down the 
starting blocks and passed the baton for 
the last time, UMass had racked up thirty- 
six points and a sixth place showing. Of 
the fourteen competitors who were re- 
sponsible for the Minutemens final tally, 
seven were first year men. In the words of 
Thomas Edison, "the future is bright,"

iVomen's Track 

Coaches Ken O'Brien and Charlotte 
Lettis took a basically youthful group of 
athletes and molded them into a highly 
successful women's track team in 1978. 

Sprinkled with veterans, though still 
youthful talent, the team was coming off a 
1977 showing of fifth in the indoor and 
fourth in the outdoor Eastern's. 

The Minutewomen finished their dual 
meet season undefeated, and finished the 
season with a second place finish (to 
Springfield) in the first New England 
championship meet. 

Several althletes also qualified for the 
Eastern meet, and although a full team 
was not sent, those who participated made 
fine showings. 

Top performers throughout the season 
were sprinter/hurdler Nancy Cominoli, 
middle distance star Cindi Martin, quarter 
miler Diana Sealy and distance runner 
Debbie Farmer.

What is a "functional 
art"? It's a small, often 
unappreciated part of the 
university that is necessary, 
requires a skill, and helps to 
keep this place functioning. 
The following are a few 
examples of our 
conceptions of a functional 
art — we're sure you can 
think of some interesting 

Functionally contributing the arts of . 


He's not just your every day, 

ordinary little boy. He's six years old, 

has brown hair and brown eyes, and 

he's the star of halftime during 

basketball season. He's the best bat 

boy the Minutemen ever had. He's 

Timmy Bishko. 

Timmy has been interested and 

involved in the sporting world since the 

tender age of four. Although he is the 

ball boy for both the basketball and 

baseball teams, he admits that he likes 

baseball the best. His job is to "chase 

the balls", but he doesn't mind that. 

Tim reports the teams as doing "a 

little good" this year. He thinks the 

team members are "good guys" — 

take that as a compliment, teams — 

Timmy's quite a guy himself! 

Parents of the UMass football and wres- 
tling teams should have it so good: a doctor 
who makes house calls, even when no one is 
sick. This paragon among the followers of 
Hippocrates is Dr. George Snook, an ortho- 
pedic surgeon who is retained by UMass to 
"treat those disabilities of the muscular skel- 
etal system: bones, joints, and the muscles." 

While he deals with more non-athletes 
than athletes, he covers four sports in par- 
ticular: football, wrestling, women's gymnas- 
tics, and lacrosse. With the exception of 
wrestling, Dr. Snook pays his own traveling 
and lodging expenses to be near the action. 
During the games he sits on the sidelines 
prepared to treat any athlete that gets in- 
jured. "My wife goes along with me and she 
sits in the stands and can see more than I can 
on the sidelines. She tells me what happened 
during the game." 

Traveling with gymnastics and lacrosse is 
a rarity, although he makes himself available 
if the need arises. He works with all the 
teams primarily on a volunteer basis. 

Dr. Snook's involvement in athletic sports 
medicine is due to a personal interest: "the 
need was there and I wanted to do it." 

Since 1960 Dr. Snook has had clinics 
twice a week at the University Health Ser- 
vice. He deals with injuries such as sprains. 

contusions, tears, torn ligaments, fractures, 
and torn cartilages. The rest of the working 
week he spends at his private practice in 

As a member of the Academy of Orthope- 
dic Surgeons, Dr. Snook teaches a course in 
sports medicine a few months a year in 
South Carolina. He is also a founding mem- 
ber of the American Orthopedic Society of 
Sport Medicine. 

In addition to his national involvement, 
Dr. Snook is an alternate physician to the 
the Olympic teams. He has been to the 
games, but he has never had an opportunity 
to practice his profession. 

During his educational career Dr. Snook 
was an active athlete. In high school he 
played football, baseball, and lacrosse. He 
continued football and lacrosse in college, 
and again in medical school he played la- 
crosse and was on the fencing team. 

Dr. Snook remembers well UMass' teams 
and athletes — particularly those he has 
operated on. He recalls "incidents of sheer 
guts and determination, and the willingness 
to carry on with injuries. The doctors and 
coaches that you work with, the athletes and 
non-athletes, these are the best parts of it."

The University of Massachusetts Minute- 
man Marching Band is a unique organization 
comprised of approximately 200 members 
with diversified interests and talents who 
provide spirit, support, entertainment, and 
unmatched excitement at football games. 
While the activities of the football team 
dominate the audience's attention for four 
quarters, the marching band is hard at work 
as a large cheering section — a very visible 
and audible part of the game, but somewhat 
in the background. The most important mo- 
ment for the marching band comes at half- 
time, and for those eight to twelve minutes 
the band works to captivate the audience. 
Besides providing an exciting performance 
for the faithful fans, each marching band 
member generates enthusiasm, and more 
importantly, school spirit and pride to each 
fan, for halftime is their moment to prove 
that they are the best at what they do. 

To put together a show requires much 
time, sacrifice, and dedication from each 
band member. Fundamentals are stressed; 
precision and perfection are constantly 
strived for. A marching band member par- 
ticipates in a band camp a week before 
school begins, and works two hours a day 
for twelve weeks during the fall semester. A 
Saturday can involve up to twelve hours of a 

band members day if there is an away game. 
All the work pays off, though, as the result- 
ant effect is a spectacular halftime show. 

One may wonder why a person wants to 
be in the UMass Marching Band. For most 
members, music has been very much a part 
of their lives, and by joining the band they 
are able to continue in their musical endeav- 
ors. For the other members, mainly flags and 
twirlers, joining the band offers them the 
opportunity to exhibit their expertise in drills 
that add color and excitement to a typical 
halftime show. 

The 1977 band welcomed a new director, 
Mr. George Parks. In his first year he 
changed the fifteen year tradition of the 
"high step" style of marching initiated by his 
predecessor. Dr. John Jenkins. The new 
style was found challenging and exciting — 
it will definately be around for a while. The 
marching band was led under the field direc- 
tion of Drum Major Rich Neely, and assistant 
Drum Major Bob Lloyd. The flag corp was 
led by Melody Essex, and the twirler squad 
by Laura Biron. 

This year fans were entertained to unfor- 
getable tunes from "Rocky", "Star Wars", 
the Beatles, "A Chorus Line", and "Mahog-

There are usually twenty-four tables 

available on the Concourse — and as 

many as thirty-one during the 

Christmas season — at which students, 

student organizations, and commercial 

vendors show and sell their wares. 

Tables are assigned in hierarchies, with 

Recognized Student Organizations 

granted top priority, individual student 

vendors second, and commercial sellers 

last. While commercial vendors are 

permitted table space only twice a 

week and have to pay a $75.00 fee 

per day, students enrolled at the 

University can reserve space for three 

days by paying only the required $2.00 

vendor's license fee.

Gary Schuster, a history major, is 
best known on Campus for his unique 
style of advertising local businesses. "It 
doesn't have anything to do with my 
major. No, in fact I've never taken a 
business course in my life. In fact, 
walking through business school — I 
used to have a class in SBA — and 
cruised through, and used to get weird 
looks from all the straight business 
people. But I didn't give a shit, 'cause 
they were studying about it and I was 
doing it. Hah." 

Six thousand 
students use the craft 
shop each year. For 
some it is their second 
home, while others 
stop by occasionally. 
Some people see the 
shop as a place to 
release the tension of 
school work. Others 
ambitiously make 
items to sell on the 
Campus Center 
Concourse. Then 
there are those who 
use the shop mainly

rush, when the place

All of us have natural networks — friends, 
family, relatives, and neighbors with whom 
we exchange favors, resources, and 
information. The Resource Network at 
UMass is a deliberate attempt to bring 
this natural process into the university 
setting in such a way as to foster 
campus wide collaboration toward 
more effective integration of student 

The Resource Network originated 
five years ago with a $40,000 grant 
from Health, Education, and Welfare, 
aimed at dealing with the self destructive 
behavior of students: fragmentations, 
alienation, and abuse of drugs and sex. Judy 
Davis is the coordinator of the Network, and is 
assisted by a graduate student and a work study 
employee. The rest of Network membership is voluntary. 

The Network has a large group meeting every other 
Wednesday during the academic year in the Campus 
Center. Attending one meeting is the way to 
become a part of the Network. Each session 
focuses on a particular issue, whether it be 
how to better serve students who are 
considered "non-traditional", or how 
information can be more effectively 
collected and distributed to students. 
Ruth Hookc (University Without 
Walls), a four year member of the 
Network, sees it as serving a four point 
service: to act as a clearing house for 
what's going on; to initiate new 
projects that no one else is pursuing; to 
model an alternative structure through 


networking, and to provide links for 
those who don't have natural links to other groups. 

Judy Davis added that while the services the Network provides 
the students are neither tangible or direct, it is working to help 
renew the system so that it might be more responsive to students. 
The Network allows individuals to move outside their work and 
roles and boundries and enables them to meet other people from 
all across campus. It puts their own work into better balance and 

In a university of this size, balance, perspective, and context is 
important to responsiveness. The Resource Network is one more 
proof that there are people who are concerned with trying to 
meet the needs of students, in a personal and responsive way.

It wcis a dark and stormy night. The phone 
rcing. I answered it. "Hello?" 

"Hello, I'm calling from Project Pulse, a 
student survey project on campus which is 
part of SAREO (Student Affairs Research 
Organization), located in Whitmore. 

"On Wednesday evenings, from 5:00 to 
11:00, we assemble to conduct phone sur- 
veys on a variety of topics. These surveys 
are requested by various decision-making 
agencies or organizations on campus. We 

have conducted surveys for the dining com- 
mons, student activities (like the Index), the 
Campus Center, career life development, 
the housing office, financial aid, and other 
groups. Surveys of general interest have 
also been done on subjects like presidential 
elections, consumer problems, student atti- 
tudes toward campus life, and attitudes to- 
ward various political issues like the Bakke 
case or Panama Canal issue. 

"The surveys conducted by Pulse are con- 

structed both by the project directors and 
the particular organization involved. They 
are designed to best meet the information 
and decision making needs of that organiza- 
tion. The time between construction and the 
reporting of the interpretation of the results 
is approximately one month. 

"Tonight's survey is hello . . .

Tracy Dooley is one of five women 

employed by the Five College Bus 

System. To become a bus driver, Tracy 

underwent a rigorous three week 

training program. She not only learned 

how to drive a bus, but how to keep 

one running as well. Before a bus is 

taken out in the morning, a circle 

check is conducted. A "circle check" 

includes checking the breaks, lights, air 

pressure, oil, tires, and turning on the 

bus and inspecting the engine. 

According to Tracy, there are many 

arts involved in driving a bus. Double 

clutching and remembering to start in 

neutral are just a few. Being a bus 

driver also includes dealing with the 

passangers. Tracy says that most 

people are great; almost all say thanks 

as they're getting off. But there arc 

those few that make assertiveness one 

functional art of driving a bus. 



Wassail, figgy pudding, great food, and song are all a part of 
the festivities at the annual Madrigal dinners. Dressed in full 
costume of the English nobility, the Madrigal Singers perform as a

the traditional holiday spirit that lived in the Middle Ages.

In recent years, UMass has become well 
known for its caliber and quantity of jazz 
concerts. The spand of jazz artists who have 
performed on campus range from the 
legendary giants to those who have yet to 
attain international success and acclaim. 
Without question, jazz was the most widely 
attended variety of music on campus this 
year. The combined audiences for the jazz 
shows exceeded 20,000- 



It was stressed that these 
events were not concerts by 
the performers, but were in- 
tended as an educational ex- 

Boris Goldovsky, known 
throughout the world as "Mr. 
Opera", presented an opera 

Television music director 
and world famous jazz pianist 
Billy Taylor presented three 
workshops and a free concert 
with the University Jazz en- 

Additional events this year 
included, the legendary Soviet 
Pianist, Lazar Berman; Antho- 
ny Newman, harpsichordist; 
Oscar Peterson, reknown jazz 
pianist; and Woody Herman, 
noted big band leader. 

These events were offered 





completely free of charge. 

A new program, designed as 
an educational experience in 
the performing arts for stu- 
dents and members of the 
University community, start- 
ed this past fall with a critique 
and open class discussion, 
featuring the legendary vocal- 
ist, Sarah Vaughan. 

The event is called "The 
Special Program in the Arts", 
and was initially sponsored by 
the Fine Arts Center. Dr. Fre- 
drick Tillis and former Director 
of Development at the Fine 
Arts Center, Fritz Steinway, 
coordinated the program. 

The Special Program in the 
Arts featured many of the 
artists and performers who 
appeared at the Fine Arts Cen- 
ter this year.

For the third consecutive year, the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra and the 
Boston Pops returned to perform 
triumphant concerts in the Fine Arts 
Center. As in past years tickets to 
these concerts were in great 
demand. Both shows sold out their 
first day on sale. The crowds were 
extremely enthusiastic, giving long 
rousing ovations.

Until this academic year, only two 
Rock and Roll shows had been suc- 
cessfully booked into the Fine Arts 
Center Concert Hall. This year the Hall 
was broken wide open. The Union Pro- 
gram Council, the student concert 
committee, succeeded in producing six 
contemporary shows. The music was 
mixed, ranging from Randy Newman to 
the Geils Band. Although there were 
some minor problems with these 
shows, overall they were hailed as 
huge successes. Negotiations have tak- 
en place to insure that Rock and Roll 
will be able to keep its new home in the

Within the umbrella tag of 
"Rock Music" there is cur- 
rently a chestful of genres. To 
name but a few, we've got 
heavy metal, soft rock, jazz- 
rock, art rock, country-rock, 
blues rock, acid rock, punk 
rock, rock and roll, power pop, 
and New Wave. It is that last 
category that we are interest- 
ed in here. 

All "New Wave" is is a 
phrase to tie together a grow- 
ing bunch of young bands who 
otherwise have little in com- 
mon. The vast range of musi- 
cal styles that fall under the 
banner mean that there is a 
New Wave band out there for 
everybody, no matter what 
the person's musical orienta- 
tion might be. Rockabilly 
lovers can certainly appreci- 
ate Robert Gordon; heavy 
metal fans have the Sex Pis- 
tols to take to heart, and, 
therefore, anyone who enjoys 
listening to music at all, who 
disregards the New Wave 
without so much as even a 
tiny samplying of it is only 
cheating himself. 

UMass students have cer- 

tainly had their chances to 
sample New Wave music first- 
hand over the course of the 
past two semesters. The 
Bluewall occasionally features 
New Wave bands, the four-day 
Cars stint in early September, 
1977, being a most evently ex- 
ample. Two major Union Pro- 
gram Council presentations, 
in particular, have served as 
New Wave showcases at 
UMass. The Ramones are the 
rock and roll equivalant of Sat- 
urday morning cartoons (the 
way they were when we 
watched them, not the junk 
being served up nowadays). 
They play fast, furious, eter- 
nally catchy three-chord on- 
slaughts of song, and their No- 
vember 16, 1977, concert in 
the Hatch was a resounding 
success for nearly all involved. 
Warm-up act Willie Alex- 
ander and the Boom Boom 
Band, a long-time Boston rock 
and roll favorite, also 
went over well, getting the 
crowd to its feet early. Willie 
and his boys also opened for 
Elvis Costello and the Attrac- 
tions when they hit the Stu- 

dent Union Ballroom March 1, 
1978, and the sporadic booing 
they got at the end of their set 
more or less matched the 
tone at the conclusion of the 
feature event. 

Touted as the next Spring- 
steen, Elvis came out of seem- 
ingly nowhere in late '77 to 
burn up the American charts 
with his debut LP, My Aim is 
True, and his public attention 
was at a peak when he arrived 
here. Although the sellout 
crowd loved what little he did 
play, most patrons were more 
than disappointed when Elvis 
and his band cut out after a 
37-minute set, leaving the 
sound system strewn across 
the stage as they left. Well, as 
the show biz saying goes, "al- 
ways leave them wanting 

Let's hope that the prob- 
lems the Program Council en- 
countered in dealing with the 
Costello camp does not deter 
them from bringing to campus 
any further New Wave acts. 
They do put on great shows.

Archie Shepp 

Sarah Vaughn 


Black Classical Music, with 
its range from slave spirituals 
to Ellington orchestration, ap- 
peared and reappeared in 
concerts by the foremost art- 
ists in the country. The 1977- 
1978 academic year hosted 
vocalists Sarah Vaughn, Shir- 
ley Ceasar, Jean Carn, Vea 
Williams, Terry Jenoure, Lynn 
Walker, and Helen Humes. In- 
strumentalists Max Roach, Ar- 
chie Shepp, Marion Brown, 
Charles Majeed Greenlee, 
Vishnu Wood, Mercer Elling- 
ton, Bobby Hutcherson, Son- 
ny Fortune, Abdullah Ibrahim 
(Dollar Brand), Rene McClean, 
Dexter Gordon, Pharoah 
Sanders and McCoy Tyner 
were just some of the fine mu- 
sicians who brought big bands 
and combos to UMass to 
share the heritage and innova- 
tions in contemporary music. 
Because of this equality in mu- 
sic and musicianship, students 
were able to listen to the most 
innovative lyricism being cre- 

ated from the storehouse of 
Black Music. 

Max Roach, returning from 
consecutive world tours, con- 
ducted workshops in the mu- 
sic department. In fact, be- 
cause of the new Black music 
major included within the of- 
ferings of the Music depart- 
ment, other artists have 
shared valuable workshop 
teaching with students. Slide 
Hampton, Billy Taylor, Sarah 
Vaughn, Max Roach and his si- 
demen, and others, have pro- 
vided insights that most music 
students never have the op- 
portunity to hear or see dem- 
onstrated first hand. Profes- 
sors Max Roach and Archie 
Shepp recorded an album ti- 
tled FORCE, and it won the 
highest award in Europe for 
music, the GRAN PRIX INTER- 
Spring Festival, honoring the 
late Edward Kennedy Elling- 
ton, provided students a con- 
cert musical line, from the Ell- 

ington Orchestra under the di- 
rection of Mercer Ellington, to 
the authentic blues of Junior 
Wells and Buddy Guy, to the 
singing style of Patti Labelle, 
to the touch of grandness 
from McCoy Tyner and his 
group which include George 
Adams and Guierelmo Franco. 
The concert ended with the 
strength of an eternal Phar- 
oah Sanders, finishing an 
event that provided the 
UMass community some of 
the finest music heard any- 
where in the world. 

This music, called Black 
Classical Music by many musi- 
cians who perform this dy- 
namic art form must continue 
to struggle because of an 
American market that does 
not appreciate the value or 
beauty of a form of music in- 
digenous to America, having 
roots in Africa.

Sonny Fortune 

Dexter Gordon with Rufus Reid in background 

The Seventh Annual Black 
Musicians Conference was 
held March 31 and April 1, and 
featured concerts by the Son- 
ny Fortune Quintet, Dexter 
Gordon Quartet, lecture-dem- 
onstrations, and a Black Music 
update workshop. 

The weekend events were 
under the direction of the 
founders of the conference, 
Bill Hasson and Vishnu Wood, 
and was sponsored by a col- 
lective of student and college 
organizations, and by the Na- 
tional Endowment of the Arts 

On Friday night, Sonny For- 
tune and his sidement, Tom 
Browne on trumphet and per- 
cussion, Charles Eubank on pi- 
ano, Wayne Dochery on bass, 
and Doug Hammond on 
drums, transformed and satu- 
rated a large audience at 

Hampshire College Robert 
Crown Center with music that 
was dynamic and vitally alive. 

The workshop included as 
panelists Vishnu Wood, a pan- 
elist on the NEA; Reginald 
Workman, Director of the New 
Muse Community Music Work- 
shop of Brooklyn; Stanley 
Crouch, noted music critic; 
and Joe Brazil, Director of the 
Black Academy of Muse in Se- 
attle, Washington. 

Wood emphasized, among 
other topics, that the 1977 al- 
location for Jazz, a category 
of the NEA, was $644,000.00 
out of a budget of 
$13,327,000.00 or 4.8%; 
Workman commented that 
New Muse was created "out 
of the need in the Black com- 
munity to establish cultural or- 
ganizations that deal specifi- 
cally with music and the per- 

petuation of this part of our 

The sophisticated giant of 
Black Classical Music, Dexter 
Gordon, performed at the 
UMass Student Union Ball- 
room. Accompanying Dexter's 
liquid but bold tenor sounds 
were George Cables on piano, 
Rufus Reid on bass, and Eddie 
Gladdin on drums. 

Dexter played many old 
tunes along with new material 
from recent recordings. A 
tight rhythm section complet- 
ed a strong and very moving 
musical unity that excited ev- 
eryone there. That final con- 
cert of the unforgettable 
weekend made clear why Dex- 
ter Gordon is called the "living 
legend of the tenor saxo- 



Haciendo Punto en Otro 
Son and Roy Brown are two of 
the many interpreters of the 
"New Song Movement" (la 
Nu6va Cancion). The "New 
Song" is the rebirth of the tra- 
ditional folkloric music heard 
throughout Latin America. 
Many of the compositions and 
arrangements bare their roots 
in the typical styles distinctive 
to each hispanic country; and 
many of the musical instru- 
ments played are those native 
to the culture. Haciendo 
Punto en Otro Son and Roy 
Brown, both poetic Puerto Ri- 
can artists, combine their po- 
etic musical talents with cul- 
tural-political themes. 

This conscious creation of a 
"New Song" is the inspiration, 
the re-awakening, of pride in 
one's people, of brotherhood 
and sisterhood, and of the 
struggles for liberation which 
all Third World nations share. 

Another group which per- 
formed at UMass was the 
Grupo Moncada, Cuban artists 
and poets of what is referred 
to as "la Nueva Trova", or the 

"New Troubadors". Much like 
the cultural and political orien- 
tation of the New Song Move- 
ment, the New Troubadors 
have a long history in Cuban 
society. Long before the final 
independance of 1959, trou- 
badors from the countryside 
performed and tried to make a 
living through their art. How- 
ever, as in most capitalist na- 
tions, their talents and mes- 
sages went unrecognized and 
unappreciated. With the liber- 
ation of the Cuban people 
came the celebration of the 
"common man and woman" 
and his/her art.

Grupo Moncada 



The University Chorale and 
Chamber Singers are a group 
of talented individuals who 
perform for audiences 
throughout New England. Un- 
der the direction qf Dr. Rich- 
ard du Bois, their repertoire 
has increased along with their 
popularity to such an extent 

that they were invited to pre- 
sent their concert programs 
to diverse European audi- 
ences. In late May and June, 
the singers traveled to Eng- 
land, France, Switzerland, 
Austria, and Germany, giving 
outstanding concerts in two of 
Europe's most famous cathe- 

drals — the Notre Dame de 
Paris and the Notre Dame de 
Chartres. The Department of 
Music and Dance is indeed for- 
tunate to have such a fine

Accompanied by an instru- 
mental ensemble, the Voices 
of New Africa House Work- 
shop Choir perform in a wide 
variety of styles. Included in 
their repertoire are selections 
of gospel songs, the blues, 
black classicals, soul and slave 
songs such as cries, field hol- 
lers and shouts. 

This unique vocal ensemble 
was organized in 1972 by 
famed percussionist Max 
Roach, a professor at the Uni- 
versity, as a performance 
course in the W. E. B. DuBois 
Department of Afrikan-Ameri- 
can Studies. 

From 1974-1977 Dr. Hor- 
ace Clarence Boyer, Assistant 
Professor of Music at the Uni- 

versity, an authority on the 
Afrikan-American Vocal Tradi- 
tion, guided the "Voices" 
through a historical and con- 
temporary dimension of Afri- 
kan-American Music. Under 
Boyer's leadership the choir 
has not only appeared in solo 
concerts, but with such well 
known artists as Max Roach, 
Ossie Davis, Reggie Workman, 
Archie Shepp, Paul Carter 
Harrison, Dorothy Love 
Coates, Sallie Martin, Dee Dee 
Bridgewater, Cissy Houston, 
Carmon Moore, the Famous 
Boyer Brothers, and the Col- 
lective Black Arts Ensemble. 

Highlights of the career of 
the choir include: a successful 
tour of several colleges 

throughout the United States; 
a concert in tribute to Thomas 
A. Dorsey, the "Father of Gos- 
pel Music"; "Porgy and Bess", 
with the Springfield Sympho- 
ny Orchestra; "Gospel Fuse", 
a fusion of gospel and sym- 
phony; and "Tomorrow Has 
Been Here and Gone", a musi- 
cal play by Thurman Stanback 
and Semenya McCord. 

Under the present direction 
of David Marshall Jackson, the 
assistant director and organist 
for the "Voices" since 1974, 
the choir has served and sur- 
vived as a creative and preser- 
vative agent of Afrikan-Ameri- 
can Music.

To go from the student life 
here at UMass to that of pro- 
fessional theater is, indeed, a 
big step. It doesn't happen too 
often, but once in a while a 
student with burning ambition 
to act comes along. A student 
like Peter Boynton didn't mind 
sacrificing precious free time 
at school with continuous re- 
hearsals for plays, dance con- 
certs, and anything to do with 
the theater. 

A music theory and compo- 
sition major, and graduate of 
1977, Boynton appeared at 
the Fine Arts Center in Octo- 
ber of 1977 with the stage 
production of "Cabaret". Per- 
forming with the National 
Touring Company Bus and 

Truck Tour, Boynton played 
the lead male role. 

During his four years here, 
Boynton appeared in several 
plays, including "Hollow 
Crown", "Pirates of Pen- 
zance", "Guys and Dolls", and 
"Journey". After taking a vari- 
ety of dance courses, he be- 
came adept enough to appear 
in several dance concerts with 
the University Dancers. 

Boynton feels that the only 
way to become an accom- 
plished actor is to get exper- 
ience from on-the-job training. 
"I think the major drawback 
that prevented my friends 
from breaking into acting was 
that they became too aca- 
demic about it. Going to 

school forever is ridiculous, 
you've got to get your training 
from doing it!" 

Boynton claims that it was 
here at UMass and the faculty 
that influenced his career 
most. "I'd have to say that I 
got most of my encourage- 
ment here at UMass from 
some wonderful people. My 
voice teacher, John D'Ar- 
mand, had tremendous enthu- 
siasm and confidence in me. 
Richard Jones, who taught me 
the technique of jazz dance, 
gave me the presence of self 
— of being looked at. I'd also 
have to mention Dr. Robert 
Stern, who was my theory 
teacher, advisor and lover of 
the musical theater." 






A program that is increasing in 
popularity each year is the Broadway 
Series at the Concert Hall. This year, 
road companies of My Fair Lady, 
Grease, Caberet, Same Time Next 
Year, and Bubbling Brown Sugar 
were engaged. All appeared to near 
capacity or sell out crowds. The 
performances of each were both 
vibrant and exciting. The problem of 
hearing disability, which had in the 
past hindered Broadway shows in the 
Concert Hall, was alleviated with the 
purchase of a new house sound 
system. Equally successful were the 
Theatre Department's Productions 
which were held in the Rand Theater. 







Dance has become a popular word at 
UMass. This year five major 
professional dance companys appeared 
at the Fine Arts Center Concert Hall. 
As usual, the most popular single event 
of the year was the Nutcracker. It sold 
out three consecutive shows. The 
Jeffrey Ballet and the Alvin Ailey 
American Dance Theater were also 
both very successful, each having total 
audiences of over 3000. In the past 
students would have had to travel to 
New York City to see the caliber of 
dance that appeared at UMass this
