'Portrait qf Ourselves 

Sense of self, as an individual priority, nourishes the academic community in which we 
thrive. Roles we assume here as student, teacher, lover, worker often determine our 
self-concept — negotiated by the realization and establishment of our capabilities. 
Ironically what those roles give us often betray what we give them. Our struggle lies in 
knowing as our purpose is in growth. That we may know ourselves is our strength. And 
individual effort will fuel mutual energy.

"Why Am I Afraid to Teil You Who I Am?" 
Vulnerability must be risked in order for honest 
communication to take place. Hurt, rejection, 
challenge, ridicule- these are the chances we 
must take to know the rare moments of broken 
barriers. It is safer to retain our shields- to 
protect our private territoriality; forfeiting that 
imperative will leave us raw. Yet only by sur- 
rendering our masks and fences can we tell 
each other who we are. Our fellow creatures 
know that we have only ourselves and one 
another. It may not be much, but that's all 
we've got. 



Knapp Sworn In 

David C. Knapp was inaugurated 
as UMass' 19th president in late Oc- 

Knapp, 50, former provost of Cor- 
nell University in New/ York, was in- 
stalled at a ceremony inside Faneuil 
Hall in the revitalized Quincy Market. 

Knapp replaced Robert C. Wood, 
who gave up the UMass presidency 
earlier this year and subsequently 
became Boston School Superinten- 
dent. Knapp officially began his du- 
ties September 1st. 

"We in universities need to renew 

our sense of social purpose," Knapp 
told the gathering. "We have turned 
inward. We have become concerned 
with our disciplines per se than with 
their meaning for learning. 

Putting science, technology and 
society back together again lies at 
the heart of solving the problems we 
face," he added. "And doing so re- 
quires that study related to this end 
must be at the core, not the fringe, 
of this university."

A Year of Campus Violence 

Violent is perhaps the most ade- 
quate way to describe the UMass 
campus from September 1978 to 
May 1979. The year began with the 
unsolved death of a 20-year-old 
UMass student, Seta Rampersad, in- 
cluded various incidents of sexual 
assault and vandalism and ended 
with set fires in the New Africa 
House during May. 

The violence was not only direct- 
ed at others and University proper- 
ty, but self-inflicted. Four UMass stu- 
dents killed themselves, three while 
living on-campus. 

In September whispers of an 18- 
year-old woman hanging herself in 
her Central Area dormitory room 
shocked the campus. Vice Chancel- 
lor for Student Affairs Dennis L. 
Madson told a Collegian reporter, 
"these things come in rashes." And 
when another 18-year-old woman 
plunged to her death from the 21st 
floor of a Southwest tower after be- 
ing on campus for only five days, the 
entire campus stopped and ab- 
sorbed the news as it spread from 
Southwest to Northeast in a matter 
of hours. Students who were often 
under the pressures of academics, 
life and career goals and romantic 
relationships, were stunned by the 
decision of a peer to do what every 
person considers at least once dur- 
ing a lifetime. 

Other incidents of personal vio- 
lence marked the year, such as a 
rash of reported and attempted 

rapes during the early spring. 

Most of the attacks occurred at 
night in dimly lit areas such as park- 
ing lots and walkways on campus. 
Many women were more afraid than 
usual to walk alone at night, and es- 
cort services sprang up around cam- 
pus as well as sales of rape alert 
whistles by the rape counselor/ad- 
vocates. Various marches and rallies 
protesting violence against women 
were held during the year. Lighting 
surveys were done and task forces 
on violence formed, yet there were 
very few modifications made, most- 
ly due to lack of funds. And no won- 
der, because over a quarter of a mil- 
lion dollars was spent on repairing 
University property that had been 
destroyed by vandalism. 

Walls, Doors, Windows, And 

Anger at the administration, the 
frustration of leading the life of a stu- 
dent, as well as alcohol abuse com- 
bined to move UMass students to 
destroy windows, lights, doors, ele- 
vators, furniture, fire alarms and 
walls. A study by the UMass Alcohol 
Education Project showed that 30 
percent of reported incidents of van- 
dalism involved alcohol use. One 
UMass worker's job actually entailed 
repairing doors only in Southwest. 
Nothing escaped. Star Trek, biblical 
quotations, perversions and hate 
notes covered the library walls of a 
University that had a reputation for 
being "aware," as the silent major- 

ity expressed itself. 
Residence Heads Threatened: 

Violence was also directed at 
Heads of Residence on campus, 
who were often the most personal 
representatives of the University ad- 
ministration that students came in 
contact with. The door of one head 
of residence was set ablaze as he 
slept, while a brick was thrown 
through the window of another. 

In late spring, several fires were 
set in the New Africa House, which 
housed the Afro-American Studies 
Department as well as other Third 
World related offices. At the close of 
the semester, the death of Seta 
Rampersad was still unresolved, and 
the violent tensions that marked the 
spring and fall semesters were aban- 
doned for summer skies. 


Seta Rampersad was a 20-year- 
old black woman student at UMass, 
scheduled to graduate in December 
of 1978 with a degree in Political 
Science. On the morning of Septem- 
ber 13, 1978 Seta was left alone to 
die at the Motel 6 in South Deerfield. 

An inquest was convened on No- 
vember 13 to determine the cause 
of Seta's death, and although Seta 
had not been alone in the immediate 


hours before her death, no absolute 
cause of death was established nor 
were any indictments made against 
those individuals who had left Seta 
alone to die. The inquiry into the 
death of Seta Rampersad was 
closed to the press and public. 

As we examine the testimony of 
the witnesses and learn how Seta 
spent the last hours of her life, it 
becomes uncomfortably clear that a 
grave injustice was done to Seta by 
terminating the inquiry into her 

At 1:30 p.m. an ambulance, re- 
sponding to an anonymous phone 
call, arrived at the Motel 6 where 
attendants found the naked body of 
Seta Rampersad. The medical ex- 
aminer, the first person to see the 
body, listed "possible homicide" as 
the cause of death at anywhere 
from 10 to 12 hours prior to 1:30 
p.m. The determination of the time 
of death is extremely significant in 
this case, for the three people who 
were with Seta during the hours be- 
fore her death claimed that she was 
alive when they last saw her at 
12:30 p.m. This time discrepancy 
was not cleared up by the inquest. 

In addition, the police department 

tained most of the information we 
have of what happened to Seta in 
the motel room. It is very important 
to note that each of these major wit- 
nesses gave very different versions 
of what happened that night. Yet 
during the inquest the judge never 
questioned the witnesses on why 
their stories did not coincide. What 
follows is a brief summary of the 
events which led to Seta's death, as 
accurately as could be determined 
from the fragmented and often con- 
flicting testimony of the three wit- 

On the night of her death, Seta 
was working as a waitress at the 
Captain's Table in Northampton. Se- 
ta's financial aid had been cut in 
half, making it necessary for her to 
work in order to finance her educa- 
tion. Since she did not have a car, 
she had to rely on other people for 
rides at home at 1 or 2 a.m. 

Jimmy, Carol and Brian were at 
Captain's Table around closing time 
September 13. Evidently, Jimmy of- 
fered Seta ride home. The four then 
drove to the Castaway's for a few 
drinks after hours. It is not clear 
whether the four were alone in the 
bar. We have reason to believe that 

investigation was not followed up by 
either the judge or the D.A. Accord- 
ing to official reports, these people 
were not even contacted to discover 
if they had information pertinent to 
the case. 

From the bar, the four preceded 
to a room at the Motel 6 to continue 
their party. Again it is not clear 
whether they were the only ones to 
enter the motel room. No compative 
tests were made of the fingerprints 
found in the room with the prints of 
the three people who claimed to 
have been alone with Seta. The case 
was closed without positively deter- 
mining who was in the room that 

Shortly after arriving at the Motel, 
the three testified that they "may" 
have smoked marijuana and snorted 
cocaine. No one seemed to recall 
whether or not Seta had participat- 
ed in using these drugs; the judge 
apparently did not feel it was an im- 
portant issue to pursue. The autopsy 
did say that many drugs are undec- 
table in a normal autopsy, and the 
more extensive tests could detect if 
these drugs if were warranted. No 
such tests were performed. 

Some time after their arrival at 

Deatli in Deerf ield 

and the District Attorney contended 
from the very beginning that they 
believed the death to have been a 
natural, peaceful one, with no signs 
of violence on Seta's body. Howev- 
er, both the medical examiner and 
the members of Seta's family who 
viewed the body the next day noted 
that there were scratches and 
bruises around Seta's mouth. Yet 
despite the opinion of Dr. Olsen, who 
termed the death a possible homi- 
cide and despite the obvious bruises 
on Seta's face, the D.A. continued to 
claim that the death was peaceful. 

Within the first 24 hours after Se- 
ta's body was found, the police lo- 
cated the man who had placed the 
anonymous phone call for the ambu- 
lance, along with two other individ- 
uals who had been with Seta on the 
morning of her death. The three 
people to last see Seta alive were 
Brian Pitzer, a former psychiatric 
nursing assistant, Carol Newton, a 
hospital cook, and De'metrious Kon- 
stanlopulos, better known as "Jim- 
my the Greek", the owner of the 
Castaway's Lounge in Whately. 

It was through the testimony of 
these three witnesses that we (The 
Committee Against Repression) ob- 

there were other people involved in 
this after hours party who were not 
mentioned during the inquest. We 
have received many phone calls and 
letters from concerned citizens who 
say they know of several business- 
men and politicians who were there. 
Consistently, the same five names 
were mentioned. Yet this avenue of 

the motel, Carol testified that Jim- 
my began slapping Seta across the 
face, frustrated because he couldn't 
wake her. Her limbs were trembling 
and she was unconscious. This is the 
first of three seizures the witnesses 
claimed she suffered. Seta had no 
medical history of any type of sei- 
zures. After the second or third sei- 

15, 1979 rally 


zure, Jimmy gave Seta a cold show- 
er while she was unconscious. The 
possibility of death by drowning was 
not ruled out by the medical examin- 
er, but this line of questioning was 
not pursued during the inquest. 

As Jimmy carried Seta from the 
shower to the bed, he dropped her 
on her head and back. After being 
placed in the bed. Seta suffered an- 
other seizure which was so severe 
that Jimmy and Carol placed a 
spoon in her mouth to prevent her 
from swallowing her tongue. 

At approximately 6 a.m., Jimmy 
and Carol went out to breakfast, 
leaving Brian with Seta. Brian testi- 
fied that during this time he checked 
her pulse several times and that she 
was still alive yet unconscious, and 
had now been in that condition for 
about five hours. When first ques- 
tioned, Brian said he was alone with 
Seta until 12:30, when her condition 
suddenly took a turn for the worse, 
at which point he finally called an 
ambulance. However, further ques- 
tioning revealed that he was in fact 
not alone — he called a friend who 
was a nurse to come and look at 
Seta. The nurse arrived at 12 noon 
and testified that Seta was still alive 
at this time, but that he suggested 
to Brian that he should call an ambu- 
lance. His allegation that Seta was 
still alive at noon is a direct contra- 
diction of the statement of Dr. 01- 
sen, who placed the time of death 
10 to 12 hours earlier. Yet again, the 
judge did not deem it necessary to 
investigate this time discrepancy. 

Brian deserted Seta at 12:30 and 
she was found an hour later, dead 
and alone. The Committee against 
Repression, a multi-racial group 
consisting of both working people 
and students, and the Third World 
Women's Task Force worked exten- 
sively since the inquest to force 
Franklin-Hampshire County D.A. 
Thomas Simons to re-open the 
Rampersad case. It is our feeling 
that many prominent people would 
be implicated if the whole story were 
revealed and that this is why the 
case was closed, despite the many 
unanswered questions. A letter was 
sent in May to D.A. Simons which 
contained the names of five individ- 
uals who have consistently been 
mentioned as having attended the 
party on the night of Seta's death. 
Simons refused to act on this infor- 
mation, saying he would work only 
with "facts" and not with mere "ru- 
mor and speculation." Yet it is his 
duty to investigate and gather con- 
crete evidence — we do not have 

detectives to do this. This is why Mr. 
Simons was elected to his office. We 
made no accusations against those 
five people; we merely brought to 
his attention a line of inquiry which, 
in the opinion of many concerned 
members of his constituency, was 
insufficiently covered by the in- 

It should also be remembered that 
Seta was a black woman, the daugh- 
ter of working class people who did 
not have the money to hire attor- 
nies, nor the political influence to in- 
sure that the D.A. would look after 
their interests. 

Seta's case is not an isolated inci- 
dent of violence against Third World 
people in Amherst and in Boston. 
One only has to look at the unex- 
plained death (termed suicide by au- 
thorities) of Jose Pontes at UMass 
or the 10 murders of black women in 
Boston to realize that this is true. 
The legalities which obscured the 
death of Seta Rampersad worked 
most viciously against Third World 
and working people. However, the 
fact that an individual is not a Third 
World person does not make one 
exempt from such devouring injus- 

Take Back the Night 

tices of the judicial/legal machine. 
What has happened to Seta Ramper- 
sad is a possibility that confronts us 

On May 15, 1979, a rally was held 
in front of the Court House in North- 
ampton to present to the D.A. peti- 
tions containing the names of about 
2,000 people who feel that the Ram- 
persad case should be re-opened. 
The rally was attended by over 150 
people. At this writing. May 1979, 
the D.A. has refused to re-open the 
case, despite the large amount of 
public support being generated by 
the Committee Agains Repression 
and the Third World Women's Task 
Force. We will continue our struggle, 
a struggle for people's justice. A 
commemoration of Seta's death in 
September and a meeting with state 
Attorney General Frank Bellotti was 
planned for the future.

Chanting slogans such as "Yes, 
that's right; we're taking back the 
night," UMass and area women 
marched once in the fall of 1978 and 
again in spring 1979 to protest vio- 
lence against women. 

The marches were similar to hun- 
dreds of "Take Back the Night" 
marches organized internationally in 
major cities and on college cam- 

The marches were designed to 
symbolize a woman's right to walk 
alone at night without fear. Both the 
November 18 march through down- 
town Northampton and the May 3 
march through Amherst center and 
the UMass campus wound through 
dimly lit streets and areas where 
rapes were reported. 

Organizers of these and similar 
marches asked men not to march 
but to show their support by lining 
the streetsides in a candlelight vigil. 

Over 2,500 women and about 500 
men demonstrated in the North- 
ampton streets while over 1,000 
women marched and about 100 
men stood in the rain from the Am- 
herst Common to the UMass Stu- 

dent Union building. 

Eggs were thrown at the demon- 
straters in Northampton, and water 
balloons were thrown during the 
spring march from the vicinity of a 
UMass fraternity. 

Reactions to both marches were 
mixed. Both men and women said 
they questioned the effect of the 
march in preventing violence against 
women, but others said publicizing a 
once forbidden subject makes peo- 
ple aware that violence against 
women is not uncommon. More 
awareness, rape counselors said, 
will increase safety precautions and 
reportage of rape, sexual harrass- 
ment and wife-beating. In 1978 the 
FBI estimated that only one in 10 
rapes is reported. 

One of the changes called for by 
march organizers was improved 
lighting on campus, yet physical 
plant officials said there was not 
enough money for additional light- 
ing. And in 1979, several rapes were 
reported in dimly lit parking lots and 
walkways on campus, where march- 
ers shouted "A woman was raped 
here, and I won't be next." 

Interregnum Regnum 

From the balcony of Saint Peter's 
Basilica, on Oct. 16, 1978, the news 
was announced that John Paul II had 
been elected by the College of Car- 
dinals of the Roman Catholic 

Reacting to the news from Rome 
that the second pope in 54 days and 
the first non-Italian to be chosen in 
456 years, historians sharpened 
their quills. 

For Karol Wojtyia, life in Poland 
was hard. His mother died when he 
was nine, and he was brought up by 
his father, who subsisted for the 
most part on army sergeant's pen- 
sion. Though many Cardinals and 
Popes have been trained from early 
youth in the hothouse atmosphere 
of minor seminaries, Wojtyia went to 
an ordinary high school. While he at- 
tended Mass each morning and 
headed a religious society, he had 
equally strong adolescent passions 
for literature and the theater. He 
was the producer and lead actor in a 
school troupe that toured south- 
eastern Poland doing Shakespeare 
and modern plays. 

The Nazi occupation of Poland 
closed the Jagiellonian University of 
Cracow, where the young Karol Woj- 
tyia had begun to study philology. 
He spent World War II working in a 
stone quarry and a chemical fac- 
tory. A devout tailor interested him 
in the writings of the 16th century 
Spanish Carmelite mystic, St. John 
of the Cross, and in 1942, the year 
after his father died, he decided to 
begin studies for the priesthood at 
an illegal underground seminary. 
While that was risky enough, Wojtyia 
also became active in the anti-Nazi 
resistance. A high school classmate, 
Jerzy Zubzycki, now a sociology pro- 
fessor at the Australian National Uni- 
versity of Canberra, said of those 
years: "He lived in danger daily of 
losing his life. He would move about 
the occupied cities taking Jewish 
families out of the ghettos, finding 
them new identities and hiding 
places. He saved the lives of many 
families threatened with execution." 
At the same time he helped organize 
and act in the underground "Rhap- 
sody Theater," whose anti-Nazi and 
patriotic dramas boosted Polish mo- 

In 1946, the Pope-to-be was or- 
dained a priest, just as the Soviet- 
backed Communist Party was begin- 
ning to smother all opposition. After 
completing two years of doctoral 

work in philosophy at Rome's Pon- 
tifical Angelicum University, he re- 
turned to Poland as a parish priest 
and student chaplain. Later, in 
1954, he began teaching at the 
Catholic University of Lublin, the 
only Catholic center of higher edu- 
cation in any communist country, 
and soon became the head of the 
ethics department. He was appoint- 
ed auxiliary bishop a few years later, 
and in 1962, at the age of 42, he was 
elevated to the post of Archbishop 
of Cracow. He first established the 
international regard and contacts 
that were to make him Pope during 
the Second Vatican Council (1962- 
1965). During the Council he made 
eight speeches, the most memora- 
ble in favor of religious liberty. 
Church honors followed a Cardinal's 
red hat in 1967, election as one of 
three Europeans on the council of 
the world's bishop's council in 1974, 
and an invitation to conduct the Len- 
ten retreat for Pope Paul Vl's house- 
hold in 1976. 

At home in Poland, Karol Wojtyia 
is considered to be a resilient enemy 
of Communism and a threatening 
figure to the party as a powerful 
preacher, and intellectual with a 
reputation for defeating the Marx- 
ists in dialogue, and a churchman 
enormously popular among younger 
Poles and laborers. Before his elec- 
tion to the papacy, it was widely ex- 
pected that the regime would exer- 
cise its veto power to block him 
from succeeding Cardinal Stefan 
Wyszynski as Primate, the leading 
figure of the Church in Poland. 

Wojtyia has written four books and 
more than 500 essays and articles. 
A Polish publisher is planning to put 
out a thin volume of his poetry on 
the theme of the fatherland. In the 
area of philosophy, the Pope is an 
expert in phenomenology, a theory 
of knowledge that bases scientific 
objectivity upon the unique nature 
of subjective human perception. He 
has written a major work on it, PER- 
SON AND ACT (1969), which is being 
translated into English. Summarizing 
the Pope's complex thought, Anna- 
Teresa Tymieniecka, a Pole who 
heads the Institute for Advanced 
Phenomenological Research, said: 
"He stresses the irreducible value of 
the human person. He finds a spiri- 
tual dimension in human interaction, 
and that leads him to a profoundly 
humanistic conception of society." 
^The new Pope is known as a 

staunch conservative on specific is- 
sues of doctrine, morality and 
Church authority. On the birth con- 
trol issue, he went on record against 
all artificial methods in his book, 
before Paul VI took the same posi- 
tion in his much attacked HUMANAE 
VITAE encyclical (letter to all the 
churches) of 1968. But the book 
also emphasized the personal love 
relationship of the married couple, 
in all its dimensions, an advanced 
view for a pre-Vatican II archbishop. 

Wojtyia wrote in 1977 that Jesus 
Christ is "a reproach to the affluent 
consumer society . . . The great pov- 
erty of people, especially in the 
Third World — hunger, economic 
exploitation, colonialism — all these 
signify an opposition to Christ by the 
powerful." When asked on West Ger- 
man TV in 1977 whether Marxism 
could be reconciled with Christinity, 
Wojtyia replied bluntly: "This is a 
curious question. One cannot be a 
Christian and a materialist; one can- 
not be a believer and an atheist." 

As the Communist attitude of 
mind has pervaded his world, people 
might expect of him a somewhat rig- 
id response, theological conserva- 
tion and intransigeance. Theological 
development does not thrive under 
conditions of siege, but there is 
nothing to suggest that personal ex- 
perience such as his — steeped as it 
is in personal suffering — will stamp 
out theological enquiry where it is 
most needed. In his first sermon as 
Pope, John Paul subtly outlined his 
objectives: "The absolute and yet 
gentle power of the Lord corre- 
sponds to the whole depth of the 
human person, to the loftiest aspira- 
tions of intellect, will, and heart, 
does not speak the language of force 
and expresses itself in charity and 
truth .. "

Red Sox 

The record shows that the 
Boston Red Sox lost the pen- 
nant in 1978. Numerous rea- 
sons could account for their 
failure. Some will think, at one 
time or another, that the Sep- 
tember Slide was caused by 1) 
the manager, 2) lack of hitting, 

3) lack of consistent pitching, 

4) Hobson's Horrors, 5) injur- 
ies, 6) the absence of the mir- 
acle worker Bernie Carbo, 7) 
pressure from outside sources 
or, 8) the New York Yankees, 
who happened to play better 
ball when it counted most. 

For the first half of the sea- 
son the Sox played extremely 
well. The pitching staff which 
had been subject to daily spec- 
ulation in pre-season by the 
media carried the team. And 
the hitters exceeded every- 
one's expectations, led by Jim 

At the All-Star break the Sox 
were in a commanding lead. 
Since no team had ever come 
back and won a pennant after 
being down eight games at the 
break, the Red Sox seemed the 
heirs to this year's flag. 

But after the All-Star game, 
strange creatures could be 
seen in uniform. Practically 
overnight the manager turned 
gerbil, the first baseman bal- 
looned out fo proportion from 
a diet of pepperoni pizzas, and 
a Spaceman crashed into the 
Boston bullpen, which, from 
that day on, was enveloped in a 
cloud of smoke. 

Along with these additions a 
contagious myopia spread 
through the team. It seemed 
everyone was affected. Not 
only did it affect the Sox' field- 
ing and batting, but the myste- 
rious disease blinded the Sox 
off the field when they read the 
American League standings. 
They couldn't see the Yankees 
slowly creeping, gaining ground 
on them. 

The culmination of all this 
came on October 2. The Yan- 
kees edged the Sox in the 
standings, and the scramble 
was on. Art Simas

State Elections 

He was liberal. He was honest. He mastered 
the state fiscal crisis. He also lost. Michael 
Dukakis was the only incumbent governor of 
the state of Massachusetts in recent history 
to lose an election in office. Edward J. King, 
formerly of the Massachusetts Port Author- 
ity, defeated the former governor in the 
Democratic primaries in November and went 
on to win the state election in November 
against Francis W. Hatch of Beverly. 

Discovering a $450 million deficit, he in- 
creased sales and income taxes after promis- 
ing not to increase taxes during his campaign. 
The state employees were not granted a pay 
raise, and social services were trimmed by 
the governor, upsetting the liberals of the 

Edward Broke's renomination for the Unit- 
ed States Senate against Avi Nelson of Brook- 
line, a local radio personality, created a prob- 
lem for incumbent governor Dukakis. Brooke 
ran into trouble with his own party over his 
support of the Panama Canal Treaty, his posi- 
tive position for federally financed abortions 
for poor women, and the divorce suit with his 
ex-wife Regina. Liberal Democrats supported 
the incumbent senator while opposing Nel- 
son, who was in favor of anti-bussing and anti- 
taxing legislation. 

A total of 30,000 people voted in the G.O.P. 
primary, many of them Democrats who 
switched their party to support Brooke. In all, 
approximately 270,000 people voted in the 
1979 primary election. Though Brooke won 
over Nelson in a 6 percent margin, Brooke 
lost to U.S. Representative Paul Tsongas 
from Lowell in the general election. 

Since the Democrats who supported 
Brooke left the party, the support for Dukakis 
was heavily damaged. Former mayor of Cam- 
bridge. Barbara Ackerman received 2% of the 
vote, Dukakis 47%, and King 51%. 

Francis W. Hatch of Beverly won the prima- 

ry election over Edward F. King in the Republi- 
can election, only to be defeated by King in 
the general election. Hatch received 208,387 
votes to King's 247,660 votes. The former 
football player scored better in some Massa- 
chusetts areas, but was behind where the 
Democrats were strong four years ago, espe- 
cially in Western Massachusetts and the Five 
College area. 

Since Proposition 13 had passed a few 
months earlier in California, the conservative 
ideals in America blossomed, with Massachu- 
setts in the front lines. King ordered a hiring 
freeze on all public agencies, including 
UMass. The guidelines specified that no posi- 
tions, transfers, or reinstatements, as well as 
initial openings. 

The University had a committment to the 
students to hire more faculty when necessary 
for discussion classes, and the students em- 
phasized their rights to receive a proper edu- 
cation. The freeze was owed to agency bud- 
get cuts. 

During the opening months of King's ad- 
ministration, several of his major decisions 
backfired. Four men appointed by King were 
forced to resign. One was tied to the Mafia, 
another dealt with Union funds, causing a 
conflict of interest. A third associated with a 
lawyer convicted of fraud and arson, while 
the fourth was forced to resign due to fraudu- 
lent degrees from prestigious European uni- 
versities when he was actually a high school 
drop out. 

Twice, the Governor shot down a 6% in- 
crease in cost of living funds to AFDC families 
(Aid to Families with Dependent Children), 
only to pass an overdue increase of 7% in 
August of 1979. During King's moves toward 
the AFDC increase, the Governor's Commis- 
sion on the Status of Women voiced opposi- 
tion to King's measure on the cost of living 
increase. King turned around and fired the 


Dukakis-appointed forty member committee, 
replacing them with anti-ERA, anti-abortion 

But in April, Governor King was scheduled 
to meet students at UMass. "The Costs of 
Quality Education", a panel discussion spon- 
sored by the UMass School of Education was 
a part of the week's education forum. Howev- 
er, the Governor made his journey to North- 
ampton instead, to visit Leed's Dam. King was 
quoted as saying he feared that he might 
have a pie or other debris thrown at him and 
his staff. 

The majority of students at the University 

feel that the Governor is much too conserva- 
tive in his view, thereby affecting the quality 
of education. After all, if the University of 
Massachusetts is managed by the State, 
should not the State take pride in its facilities 
and not cater to the private universities in the 
area? This is one question the Governor and 
his administration should look into, for if the 
Governor says, "Everything I'm for, the peo- 
ple are for," then the Governor should re- 
evaluate his position on several issues and 
not just the issues of his close business asso-

King Calls the Shots 

Of all the news events during the 
1978-79 year, none sparked as 
much interest on the UMass campus 
as the raise of the legal drinking age. 
What began as campaign promise of 
Governor Edward King turned into a 
reality as the bill to raise the drinking 
age quietly appeared in the Boston 
Statehouse. Students across the 
state quickly mobilized to protect 
their common form of entertain- 
ment. Various measures were intro- 
duced that would have raised the 
age from 18 to 19, or from 18 to 19, 
then to 20 and then to 21. In the 
midst of the controversy, four teen- 
age girls were killed in a town out- 
side of Boston when the car one of 
them was driving crashed. The alco- 
hol level in the 17-year-old driver's 
blood was the highest ever recorded 
in the state, as proponents of the 
raise were quick to point out. Fac- 
tors in the incident that were conve- 
niently ignored were that the girl's 
older sister bought the excessive 
amounts of liquor and that the girl 
had been stopped for drunk driving 
once before, but had her license re- 
stored. Persons against the increase 
said it is the parent's responsibility 
to monitor the behavior of their chil- 
dren, and the state's responsibility 
to create stiffer penalties for drunk 
driving and provide more education 
about alcohol use and abuse. 

The controversy reached a zenith 
when the perpetrator of the bill. 
King, was invited to speak on cam- 
pus during an educational forum. At 
the last minute the governor opted 
to visit a dam in Northampton in- 
stead, because, he told a reporter.

Demonstrations on campus and in 
Boston proved fruitless, and on April 
16, 1979, a 20-year-old drinking age 
went into effect. The effect on traffic 
fatalities, which the increase was 
supposed to prevent, was not known 
but the increase had obvious effect 
on campus bars. Splits between low- 
er and upper classmen were predict- 
ed, as well as increased drinking in 
the dormitories. Under-age students 
left campus in May thinking of ways 
to obtain fake I.D.s

The vat of death sits on a plank walkway at the People's Temple in Jonestown, Guyana, vith the 
bodies of some of the more than 900 victims of the murder-suicide plot on the ground. The vat 
contained an ade drink laced with cyanide. 

In what was possibly the largest 
recorded mass suicide in history, 
913 members of the People's Tem- 
ple, a religious cult, followed the or- 
ders of would-be messiah Reverend 
Jim Jones and drank from a vat con- 
taining cyanide laced Kool-Ade. 

Jones, who shot himself after his 
followers drank the poison both will- 
ingly and unwillingly, apparently felt 
threatened by the visit of Congress- 
man Leo J. Ryan to Guyana. Ryan 
was investigating reports of abuses 
of cult members. Ryan and four 
companions were ambushed and 
killed as they attempted to leave 

Jones had promised his followers 
a "close big family that transcended 
both race and class barriers and 
lived in a celebration of God while 
working to transform society." 
Jones and his "family" lived in the 
South American jungle on a com- 
mune, where they raised most of 
their food themselves. 

Jones was alleged to have abused 
many cult members sexually, men- 
tally and physically. Some cult mern- 
bers who refused to drink the poison 
were held as it was poured down 
their throats or shot to death. 

The incident spurned a rash of 
books on the atrocity as well as new 
investigations into existing cults and 
articles on the psychology behind 


Black History Week 

A people's history cannot be sole- 
ly presented as an academic en- 
deavor. It is a living account that not 
only narrates past events but rein- 
forces feelings of self-worth. It pro- 
vides a context wherein people see 
themselves as makers of history. 
The academic acceptance of Black 
Studies cannot in and of itself pro- 
vide this crucial ingredient. 

The institution itself must recog- 
nize its responsibility for hundreds of 
years of neglect towards a people 
that have contributed so much to 
the development of civilization and 

American educators pride them- 
selves and their "institutions of high- 
er learning" with creating the best 
education that the world has to of- 
fer. Despite the supposed great 
strides made since the 1785 Com- 
mon School system, the 1862 Mor- 
rill Land Grant Act (which helped es- 
tablish the Massachusetts Agricul- 
tural College, now UMass, and the 
1954 court case Brown vs. Board of 
Education, American education so- 
cializes all who are under its influ- 
ence to think as Europeans. Their 
curriculums are designed to create 
"productive" members of the "free 
enterprise system" in the European 

For the supposed minority popula- 
tions in this country, however, the 
overriding need is to recover from 
their education. 

To offset the self-destructive ef- 
fect on blacks in educational institu- 
tions, black instructors were forced 
to implement Black History Week. 

Black History Week was not new. 

Queen Mother Moore 

The need to re-educate blacks to the 
feelings of self-worth were recog- 
nized decades ago. In 1915 the au- 
thor of The Miseducation of the Ne- 
gro, Carter G. Woodson, created the 
Association for the Study of Negro 
Life and History. By 1926 he estab- 
lished Negro History week. He was 
not alone in this endeavor. Arthur 
Schomburg, a black Puerto Rican 
who came to the U.S. in 1896 and 
was a regular lecturer for the Univer- 
sal Negro Improvement Association, 
founded the Negro Society for His- 
torical Research. He also estab- 
lished the Schomburg Collection of 
Negro Literature and History, 
opened at Fisk University in 1926. 

In the spirit of this tradition, the 
Afrikan-American Students Associ- 
ation at UMass sponsored Black His- 
tory month. The concern of the 
Afro-Am society was with history as 
a living science and presented those 
who lived it from every medium 
within our reach. Victor Goode of 
the National Conference of Black 
Lawyers reviewed the long history of 
legal lynching that has gone on, de 
spite the supposed safeguards of 
the constitution. 

Ruby Dee and Ozzie Davis utilized 
the medium of poetry and stories to 
convey the pleasures and pitfalls of 
black life in America. New education- 
al systems were reviewed by Profes- 
sor Hetty Fox of New York, while Na- 
home Nahaliel of Chicago lectured 
on the principles upon which rela- 
tionships operate. Black historical 
tradition was further enhanced by 
the arts, with a concert by UMass 

Professor Archie Shepp, while our 
experiences were masterfully con- 
veyed through dance by Patti O'N- 
eal's Dusk Dance Ensemble and Eno 
D. Washington's Dance Company, 
featuring Pan-Afrikan dance forms. 
Black History Month is a people's 
memory — racism in this country 
has caused millions to lose the 
knowledge of a great past. Without 
that knowledge, an intelligent 
course for the future cannot be 
charted. Black History Month is a 
moderate medicine for an extreme 
illness — racism and Eurocentric 
education. For those who can boldly 
plot the future, the mandate is clear: 
educate with the truth or be inun- 
dated by the lie.

Early in the spring semester, a ral- 
ly involving about a third of the stu- 
dent population at Hampshire Col- 
lege took place, which ultimately 
forced the Board of Trustees to redi- 
vest, since the college had divested 
stock in corporations doing business 
in South Africa, only to reinvest lat- 


In the fall of 1978, with inflation 
threatening to run him out of office, 
President Jimmy Carter decided to 
fight back. He announced a volun- 
tary government program designed 
to slow down inflation by limiting 
wage and price increases. 

Wage raises were to be held to 
seven percent per year and prices 
were not to exceed the average of 
price increases over the past two 
years, a figure the government esti- 
mated at roughly 5.7%. Companies 
granting larger pay increases or rais- 
ing prices beyond the guidelines 
were supposed to lose government 
contracts. It didn't work. 

Carter's "7% solution" was at- 
tacked by labor, which objected to 
government interference in collec- 
tive bargaining, particularly when it 
became evident that businesses 
were ignoring the price guidelines 
without penalty, yet using the wage 


At Amherst College in the fall of 
1978, a large rally took place in front 
of the Black Cultural Center where a 
meeting of the Board of Trustees 
was going on. In spite of a number of 
workshops, educational forums and 
speakers, all of whom urged Am- 
herst College to divest, the trustees 
did not deem the issue important 
enough for them to include it as an 
item on their agenda. Hence, it was 
not the cross-burning provocation 
alone that subsequently precipitat- 
ed the take-over of the administra- 
tion building in the spirng, but also 
frustration on the part of organizers 
and students. Frustration which re- 
sulted from the stubborn attitude of 
the administration in light of strong 
demands by students that the col- 
lege divest more than $20 million in 

Similar views were expressed by a 
large segment of the student popu- 
lations at Mt. Holyoke and Smith 
Colleges, whose combined invest- 
ments totaled at least $50 million. 

The culminating event for the 
work done by the Southern Africa 
Liberation Support Committees of 
the various colleges was the South 
Africa Action Week, which started on 
April 4, continued for two weeks and 
featured a rally with speakers such 
as Prexy Nesbitt, Sean Gevarsi and 
U.S. Senator Paul Tsongas, and oth- 

guidelines in an attempt to force un- 
ions to settle within the wage guide- 

Meanwhile, every month brought 
a report of the rising cost of living, 
followed by a report of a drop in 
Carter's popularity amongst Ameri- 
can voters. Massachusetts Senator 
Edward Kennedy fueled the fire un- 
der Carter when he suggested in De- 
cember that the future of Carter and 
the Democratic Party was pegged to 
inflation and economic stability. 

The situation really heated up in 
the Spring as the expiration of major 
industrial contracts drew near. The 
Oil Chemical and Atomic Workers In- 
ternational Union was the first major 
union to bargain on a national basis 
under the guidelines. Surprisingly, 
they settled within the guidelines. 

But February brought further re- 
ports of inflation, the worst since the 
1974 recession, and although the 
White House refused to publicly 
agree, private economists began 
predicting a recession. 

Inflation was not the only thing ris- 
ing. The Commerce Department re- 
leased figures showing that corpo- 

ers, all of whom strongly urged di- 

During the year the movement 
gained momentum, involving more 
and more students. More action was 
planned to be directed in particular 
against Amherst, Smith and Mt. Ho- 
lyoke colleges. 

It was also important that South 
Africa Week of Action coincided with 
a week commemorating Dr. Martin 
Luther King Jr., and that both 
events were jointly organized. The 
organizers made a link between ra- 
cial oppression and economic ex- 
ploitation in the United States and 
Southern Africa. 

One example of this link is that 
many economic institutions such as 
banks and multi-national corpora- 
tions that take advantae of legal 
slave labor in Southern Africa, have 
for years fought unionization and 
have relined certain urban areas in 
the U.S., particularly black and His- 
panic neighborhoods. Evidence has 
shown (even by the admission of 
such important officials as former 
U.S. Ambassador to South Africa, 
Bowdler) that these economic ven- 
tures into South Africa strengthen, 
rather than weaken, the hand of 
facisim and racism in that country. 
They do virtually nothing to alleviate 
the economic and political plight of 
the black majority.

rate profits had jumped to 9.7 per- 
cent in the fourth quarter of 1978. 
This supported labor's charge that 
big business was cheating on the 
guidelines. AFL-CIO leader George 
Meany called it "the grossest dem- 
onstration of profit-gouging since 
the opening days of the Korean 

The government's Council on 
Wage and Price Stability had written 
the price guidelines loosely, allowing 
most companies to find a way to 
evade them. The director of the 
council, Barry Bosworth, concluded, 
"We were suckered." 

When even the government began 
to admit failure, Meany called for 
mandatory price controls, or at least 
an effective government program to 
monitor prices. Carter responded by 
asking for union help in monitoring 
prices, and "Operation Price 
Watch" was born. 

A stillbirth; no one has heard of it 

Despite widespread union scepti- 
cism of the program, inflation czar 
Alfred Kahn reported that 90 per- 
cent of contracts covering 1 ,000 or 


more workers had so far complied 
with the 7 percent guideline. "The 
question is how long we can expect 
labor to stay in line," he said. 

He didn't have to wait long to find 
out as the Teamsters Union began 
nationwide negotiations with the 
trucking industry. Teamster Presi- 
dent Frank Fitzsimmons stated pub- 
licly that high corporate profits 
made it unfair to ask his members to 
settle within the guidelines. 

The White House, aware that this 
was the first major test of the wage 
guidelines whose outcome was likely 
to affect the settlements of airline 
mechanics, electrical workers, rub- 
ber and auto workers, warned that it 
would seek deregulation of the 
trucking industry if the guidelines 
were exceeded. Deregulation would 
increase competition, possibly af- 
fecting the security of union mem- 

Although the government relaxed 
this stance somewhat and indicated 
it would accept a settlement slightly 
higher than seven percent, talks 
broke down over the cost of living 
adjustment. A ten day strike fol- 
lowed. The union called a selective 

strike against 73 of the biggest com- 
panies, but management responded 
with a lock-out, shutting down 500 

The effects of the strike spread to 
the auto industry, particularly 
Chrysler, which laid off 84,000 work- 

ers. Autoworkers, however, were 
pleased to see a challenge to the 
guidelines coming before their own 
summer contract talks. 

The Teamsters ended the strike 
agreeing to a contract giving mem- 
bers an increase of at least 27 per- 
cent over three years. In what was 
viewed as an effort to save face, the 
White House praised the settlement. 
Alfred Kahn called it "an important 
contribution to controlling infla- 

Yet inflation continued at a rate of 
15 percent per year; no company 
ever lost a government contract for 
exceeding the guidelines. Carter's 
popularity continued to drop, and 
speculation about having another 
Kennedy in the White House grew.

Sadat talks... 

Begin talks... 


The grueling, bitter, antagonistic 
relationship between Israel and 
Egypt which has lasted for three 
decades has now diplomatically end- 
ed with the signing of the elusive 
peace treaty which will establish 
"normal and friendly" relations be- 
tween the two countries in the near 

The path to this historically signifi- 
cant agreement began in November 
1977 with Egyptian President Anwar 
Sadat's unexpected visit to Jerusa- 
lem in hopes of settling Mid-East 
tensions. But the rising hopes of No- 
vember faded with time and the rift 
between the nations was once again 

A stalemate on "critical" issues 
was implanted, neither side wishing 
to probe action toward normative 
relations because everyone felt justi- 
fied in their stands. A move by Israel 

seemed appropriate because of Sa- 
dat's initiative but Israel remained 
firm to its constituents and stayed 
neutral. Sometimes the differenced 
heated up and verbal bickering by 
both parties, each blaming the other 
for the breakdown, often occurred 
in the press. 

As time and hope of a quick settle- 
ment vanished, the U.S. sought 
measures to bring the two parties 
back together. An invitation to a 
summit meeting at Camp David was 
extended to Israel and Egypt by 
President Jimmy Carter in August 
1978 with the meetings to be held in 
September. Admittedly, the U.S. ad- 
ministration held little hope for an 
overall settlement, but a "frame- 
work" for peace was the ideal objec- 

The main issues revolved around 
the West Bank of Israel, a region 

populated by Palestinians and con- 
trolled by Jordon before the Israe- 
lies seized it during the 1967 war, 
and the political destiny for the Pal- 
estinians, who wished an autono- 
mous state and who occupied the 
region. Sadat demanded the return 
of all territory while Menachem Be- 
gin, Prime Minister of Israel, re- 
mained adamant in not releasing all 
territory for security reasons. 

In the waning hours of the sched- 
uled 13 day conference, conces- 
sions were granted by Sadat and Be- 
gin allowing a positive step for alle- 
viation of basic differences, and 
open communication. Both parties 
praised the work of Carter in forcing 
the issue of peace by setting the 
"framework." Under it, the parties 
agreed to: exercise Egyptian sover- 
eignty up to the recognized border; 
have Israel to withdraw from the

Arab reaction in Syria, Libya, Alge- 
ria, South Yemen and from the Pal-

strongly denounced the agreements 
calling them "a stab in the heart of 
the Arab nation and a flagrant devi- 
ation from the common Arab strate- 
gy, a contradiction of Arab summit 
resolutions and a denial of Palestin- 
ian rights." Jordan expressed con- 
cern saying "any peace which disre- 
gards the Palestinians would be false 
. . . with upheavals in the Arab 

At the time of the Camp David 
signing, Israel had refused any deal- 
ings with the PLO because Israel felt 
that the organization was a terrorist 
group not representative of the Pal- 
estinian people. 

This conflict of interest was a de- 
terrent along with the question of 
Israeli settlements in the West Bank, 
and on the fate of Jerusalem. Only 
three days after the "framework" 
was signed. Begin answered that he 
never promised Israeli withdrawal 
from existing West Bank settlements 
when the U.S. tried to pin him down 
to the language written in the text of 
the agreements. 

The stage was again set for dis- 
agreement, this time with linguistics 
as a barrier. 

The three month period within 
which a formal peace agreement 
was to be signed, passed. Israel's 
stance on the West Bank settle- 
ments disheartened Carter and 
those who thought peace was so 
near. On several occasions the talks 
were running smoothly, according 

to official comment, then were ab- 
ruptly dismantled with each side 
proclaiming "fundamental differ- 

While this jockeying was taking 
place, the Nobel Peace Prize was 
awarded to Begin and Sadat in Octo- 

While domestic problems mount- 
ed with the montly inflation figures, 
gas increases and a rapidly declining 
popularity, Carter invited Begin to 
join him and Prime Minister Mustafa 
Khalil of Egypt to new negotiations in 
February 1979. Begin rebuffed the 
offer for new negotiations but did 
say that he would talk with Carter. 

At the meeting, Carter advanced 
new proposals in a desperate effort 
to salvage some type of accord be- 
tween Egypt and Israel. Begin re- 
mained open, saying negotiations 
needed a revision and "I don't see 
any tragedy in it . . . ultimately there 
would be peace in the Mideast." 

That peace was finally reached on 
Monday March 26, 1979 after a bold 
decision by Carter to visit the Mid- 
east earlier in the month. The trip 
was conceived after the Israeli cabi- 
net approved suggestions Carter 
made to Begin while he was in Wash- 
ington. White House sources said 
that the president's trip was "open- 
ended so that the prospects for 
peace do not dim and perhaps van- 
ish." One diplomatic source 
summed up the trip as "this last ar- 
row in the president's quiver. He 
better not miss." 

Carter shuttled between Israel 
and Egypt and persuaded Sadat and 
Begin for a formal signing with the 
approval of their countries' legisla- 
tive bodies. The major elements in- 

— a surrender of the entire Sinai 
desert by Israel to Egypt, including 

— withdrawal of all military forces 
and air bases from the Sinai within 

three years and abandonment of El 
Arish, the largest Arab city on the 
Sinai within three months. 

— establishment of the pre-1948 
boundary lines with the fate of Gaza 
to be determined in future negotia- 

— normalized relations including 
economic and cultural, with free- 
dom of movement, an end to hostile 
propaganda and the building of nor- 
mal postal, telephone and highway 

— exchange of ambassadors. 

— agreements to set goals for the 
completion of negotiations concern- 
ing the West Bank and Gaza Strip 

— agreement of Egypt to sell Israel 
oil on non-discriminatory commer- 
cial terms. 

— a 15-year extension on guaran- 
teed Israeli oil supplies to the U.S. 

— establishment of negotiations for 
the fate of the West Bank and Gaza . 
although Israeli officials have indi- 
cated they would continue building 
of settlements. 

The important Palestinian ques- 
tion remains unresolved at this junc- 
ture. Begin is still holding the line, 
refusing to accept a Palestinian 
state on Israel's border. And the 
U.S. also does not recognize the 
PLO as representatives of the Pales- 
tinians until the PLO recognizes Isra- 
el's right to exist and accepts the 
United Nations Resolution declaring 
that right. Further negotiations on 
this sensitive issue are expected to 
follow the Camp David framework. 

The first visible sign of harmony 
has been recorded through the ef- 
forts of three nations. It is now the 
option of Mideast negotiators and 
leaders to implement that printed 
document that calls for peace.

Peeking at Peking Pays Off 

After 30 years of trying to isolate 
the People's Republic of China, the 
United States recognized that na- 
tion of one-quarter of the world's 
people by breaking its ties with the 
Nationalist Chinese regime on 
Taiwan and embracing mainland 
China as a diplomatic partner in a 
changing world. 

The accomodation with the PRC 
came only a few days before Christ- 
mas 1978 with the recognition of 
China by the US at the price of cut- 
ting formal ties with the Nationalist 
Chinese on Taiwan by abrogating its 
24-year-old defense treaty. 

Even though the recognition of 
China had been inevitable since 
Richard M. Nixon opened the door in 
1972, the suddenness of the pre- 
Christmas development caught the 
world by surprise. The bitterness of 
the island Chinese was expressed by 
Tsai Wei-ping of Taiwan's Institute of 
International Relations: "During his 
campaign, Carter criticised Kis- 
singer for his secret diplomacy. How 
different is this - notifying our Presi- 
dent (Chiang) eight hours before the 
speech (by Carter announcing the 
'normalization' of relations between 
Red China and the US)?" 

Another official told Newsweek's 
Andrew Nagorski that "We don't un- 
derstand you Americans. It seems 
that if you can kill Americans - like 
the Japanese, the Germans and the 
Chinese did - then you can be their 

At home, Sen. Barry Goldwater 
accused Carter of committing "a 
cowardly act" that "stabs in the 
back the nation of Taiwan." 

But most observers conceded 
that in switching US recognition 
from Taipei to Peking, Carter was 
simply facing the reality that the is- 
land republic would never rule the 
mainland. And they consoled the 
world with the statement that the 
Red Chinese had agreed that Wash- 
ington would not have to abrogate 
its defense treaty with the island 
Chinese for a year after normaliza- 

This last had been the prime stum- 
bling block to US recognition of Chi- 

The suddenness of the earth-shat- 
tering development was explained 
by the Monday-morning quarter- 
backs as "The mid-term elections 
were over. Congress was in recess, 
and Carter was obviously presented 
with an offer he couldn't refuse." 

A China-watcher said that "The 
Chinese knew that an agreement be- 
tween us and the Soviet Union was 
on the way, and they were faced 
with a choice of making a move now 
or sitting on the sidelines. The same 
was true with us; we didn't want to 
be moving more swiftly with Russia 
(on SALT) than with China." 

The accomodation which the two 
countries reached provided for co- 
operation in such fields as agricul- 
ture, space, energy, medicine and 

scholarly exchanges. 

Plans included negotiations to 
open US consulates in Canton and 
Shanghai, San Francisco and one 
other American city. With a cultural 
agreement already in the works, 
trade possibilities opened with a 
plan to sell Peking a communica- 
tions satellite to be launched by 
NASA from the US, complete with 
ground stations. 

And while the politicians and ideal- 
ists were shouting their reactions to 
the surprise international political 
coup of the year, American busi- 
nessmen were quietly filling their 
display cases and buying airline tick- 
ets for Peking. 

Before the end of the year, Coca- 
Cola was flying the red and yellow 
flag of the People's Republic of Chi- 
na atop its Atlanta headquarters 
building while Board Chairman J. 
Paul Austin told a press conference 
that Coke was going to China. 

The timing of the China deal and 
the normalization deal was coinci- 
dental, Austin said. Coke officials 
had been negotiating for ten years 
for the exclusive rights to the cola 
market in China. 

It seemed only fair - after all, on 
the heels of detente with the Soviet 
Union, Pepsi Cola had already man- 
aged an exclusive distribution deal 
there in 1974.

Commonwealth vs. Chad's Cancer 

A case of cancer that involves a 
two-year-old boy, his 24-year-old 
mom and 300 years of Common- 
wealth law is still unresolved, but still 
making periodical headlines. 

It began in early 1978, when Mass. 
General physicians discovered that 
their oral chemotherapy treatments 
had been stopped by Chad Green's 
parentis. The hospital sued to win 
state custody of the lad for "the 
limited purpose of receiving chemo- 
therapy." The Greens won in the 
lower courts, but in August 1978 the 
State Supreme Court ruled in the 
hospital's favor. Even as the Greens 
headed for the Federal courts with a 
suit based on their belief that their 
constitutional rights as parents were 

being violated, the Greens fled to 
Mexico to a laetrile clinic in Tijuana, 
rather than obey a court order to 
stop giving the unproven drug and 
vitamins to their lukemia-stricken 

By early February 1979, a Plym- 
outh, Mass., judge ordered their ar- 
rest for "flouting the dignity of the 
court." The warrants were issued to 
force the Greens to return to court 
and "show cause why they should 
not be found in criminal contempt." 
He also ordered warrants issued so 
he could sentence them for civil 

Meanwhile, the Greens reported 
from Mexico that their son was 
flourishing under the alternative 

treatment of vegetables, laetrile, 
rest and prayer. 

The Massachusetts court had ori- 
ginally ordered the laetrile doses 
stopped "because Chad was being 
poisoned by cyanide," one ingredi- 
ent of the controversial substance. 

At press time, the Mexican stan- 
doff persists; the warrants are in 
force, the Greens remain south of 
the border, where they can't be 
served, and Chad is receiving illegal 
treatment that his parents insist is 
keeping him alive. 

His mother says, "I'm directly in- 
volved in a love situation."

Tlie Harrisburg Syndrome 

Before March 29, 1979 the opin- 
ion of the average non-technically 
oriented person in the U.S. concern- 
ing controversies of the "Atomic 
Age" was seldom heard or recog- 
nized by official sources. Debate pri- 
or to that date usually hinged on the 
"us vs. them" concept of nuclear 
weapons proliferation. Nuclear pow- 
er plant construction — although 
perceived as a very real threat if one 
was proposed in your backyard — 
for the most part, did not evoke a 
resounding emotional response, pro 
or con. Proponents from both sides 
had been existent since Hiroshima, 
but the understanding of operations, 
positive and negative side effects of 
radiation and subsequent conse- 
quences were known only to a hand- 
ful of scientists and other techni- 
cians. Other relative social, political 
and economic events determined 
the attention of the average citizen. 

But national attention shifted to 
the Three Mile Island nuclear facility 
in Middletown, Pa. on March 29 and 
weeks beyond, in what, for most 
Americans, was an abrupt, personal 
re-evaluation of U.S. committment 
to future nuclear power generation. 

The facility at Three Mile Island 
included an 880 megawatt, highly 
pressurized water reactor, a com- 
plex and delicately balanced mecha- 
nism. Its basic function was to cre- 
ate a fission reaction with a neutron 
from a source, usually uranium, to 
collide with other fissionable nuclei, 
thereby producing a self-sustaining 
chain reaction. The heat generated 
from this process was extracted by 
water 600° F and under pressure of 
2250 pounds per square inch to pro- 
duce steam in a heat transfer sys- 
tem which drove the turbine to gen- 
erate electricity. The fuel elements 
were compressed cylindrical pellets 
of uranium oxide, 3/4 of an inch 
long and 3/8 inch in diameter load- 
ed into 12-foot long tubers of a zir- 
conium alloy called cladding. 

Condensed cooling water pumped 
back through a primary loop to and 
around the reactor core served as a 
modertor of neutron speed and as a 

The chain reaction was controlled 
by lowering control rods made of bo- 
ron, which absorbed the neutrons, 
into the reactor core. This delayed 
the fissioning process. 

Although this is a simplistic view, 
and so far does not take into ac- 
count the radiation emission factor, 
the technology involved is intricate. 

The accident at Three Mile Island 
before dawn was triggered when a 
main pump in the water system shut 
down. That pump was supposed to 
send water through the cooling sys- 
tem. This stoppage in the flow sys- 
tem between the reactor and tur- 
bine caused heat and pressure to 
increase. The cooling control rods 
were lowered by the emergency sys- 
tem, halting the heat generated 
from fissioning. Also, back-up auxil- 
liary pumps were activated by com- 
puters to keep the water flowing. 

Operators at the plant thought ev- 
erything was under control, but in- 
vestigators from the Nuclear Regu- 
latory Commission found the valves 
to the back-up pumps were closed 
prematurely; no water was cooling 
the reactor, as presumed — days 

Because the valves were closed, 
water condensed from steam spilled 
into a pressurized tank in the bot- 
tom of the building. According to re- 
ports compiled by the Los Angeles 
Times, the operators were given 
"erroneous information concerning 
the water level in the pressurizer 

"; at the same time the tops of 

the fuel rods were exposed and 
over-heated and their radioactive 
components contaminated the cool- 
ing water. 

John G. Herbein, vice president of 
operations of the Metropolitan Edi- 
son Company, which operated the 
plant, said that before the day end- 
ed, "nearly 100,000 gallons of water 
had spilled onto the cellar floor be- 
neath the reactor. 

As the water level rose, an auto- 
matic sump pump was activated by 
computer, transfering water to an 
adjacent building, flooding it. There 
a filtered ventilating system lifted 
low-level radiation into the atmo- 
sphere. Operators were not aware 
that this was happening. 

To relieve mounting pressure in 
the containment building, steam 
was purposely released into the at- 
mosphere, spewing out more radi- 

Residents of the area were not in- 
formed until hours after the initial 
accident, at about 4 a.m. Middle- 

town Mayor Robert Reid, whose bur- 
ough of 11,000 persons is three 
miles away from the plant, said he 
was alerted at 7:37 a.m. by civil de- 
fense authorities, who confirmed 
there had been an accident at the 
plant but that things were under 
control. However, Reid said, "it was 
three and a half hours before I could 
get a phone call through to Met Ed 
to find out if we had a dangerous 

Reports of radiation exposure re- 
ceived by four employees were veri- 
fied by power company officials. Ac- 
cording to Herbein, "three of the 
workers underwent an exposure of 
three to three and a half rems of 
gamma ray radiation, and a fourth 
received about four rems." 

A rem is a dose of radiation mea- 
sured in people. Government safety 
regulations stipulate an annual dos- 
age of not more than five rems and 
only three rems in any three month 
period. The dosage the men re- 
ceived was approximately equal to 
50-66 chest X-rays absorbed at one 

A conflicting report from Three 
Mile Island officials said "as many as 
eight workers at the plant may have 
experienced exposures from 0.5 to 
1.0 rems." 

Reports on March 30 in the Bos- 
ton Globe and the New York Times 
quoted Senator Gary Hart (D-Colo.), 
Chairman of the Senate Public 
Works Subcommittee on Nuclear 
Regulation, who said the incident 
was "the most serious accident in- 
voving nuclear power generation in 
the U.S." 

Henry Kendal, a physics professor 
at M.I.T. and director of the Union of 
Concerned Scientists concurred 
with Hart. "This is clearly the worst 
accident in nuclear power." 

But three radiation specialists said 
that fears about the escape of radi- 
ation were exaggerated. Professor 
Richard Wilson of Harvard said "it's 
unlikely to cause even one cancer 
over anybody's lifetime in that 
whole area." His view was support- 
ed by Dr. Steven Gertz of Philadel- 
phia and Dr. David Rose of M.I.T. 

Just when plant officials thought 
the danger had subsided, the forma- 
tion of a hydrogen bubble formed 
when coolant water came in direct 
contact with damaged and over- 


heated fuel rods. Officials were 
afraid the bubble would prevent 
cooling water from reaching some of 
the undamaged fuel rods, causing 
them to overheat and leak more ra- 
dioactive gas. 

Perhaps the biggest fear anyone 
had during the crisis was of a "melt- 
down." This would have occurred if 
the reactor containment vessel, 
which was cooled by water, was un- 
able to contain the heat from caus- 
ing a runaway nuclear chain reac- 
tion, melting the reactor into the 
gound. And in a case of life imitating 
art, the nation knew the effects of a 
meltdown from the movie "The Chi- 
na Syndrome" which was released 
about a month before the accident 
at Three Mile Island. 

Meanwhile, emergency evacua- 
tion plans were drawn up by state 
civil defense authorities for six coun- 
ties — approximately 636,000 peo- 
ple — if the situation worsened. Pri- 
or to the official announcement on 
April 2, pregnant women and pre- 
school children were urged to leave 
the area because they would be the 
most affected by the radiation. 
Schools within 10 miles of the plant 
were closed and businesses report- 
ed high absenteeism during the cri-

Ant i— Nuke 




SCANN hits the Capitol 

1978-79 was the third year of or- 
ganized student anti-nuke activity at 
UMass and was also the most suc- 
cessful, largely as a result of the 
awareness and concern stemming 
from the accident at Three Mile Is- 
land. In October of 1978, members 
of the UMass Alternative Energy Co- 
alition were at the fall congress of 
the Clamshell Alliance, and got in- 
volved with the Student Coalition 
Against Nukes Nationwide. (SCANN) 
The group tried to organize students 
as part of the overall anti-nuke 

In organizing SCANN, the group 
tried to build a coalition to organize 
students around the issues of nucle- 
ar power and alternative energy. 

The first major activity SCANN or- 
ganized during the fall semester was 
a teach-in to mark the fourth anni- 
versary of the death of Karen Silk- 
wood, the union activist and Kerr- 
McGee employee who was killed by 
the giant Oklahoma industrial con- 
glomerate as she was trying to ex- 
pose problems with their fuel rod as- 
sembly, Plutonium contamination 
and other problems at the nuclear 

The teach-in drew about 100 peo- 
ple. In addition, SCANN had a table 
on the Campus Center concourse 
throughout the year, showing video 
tapes and providing literature for 
students on nuclear power. 

A number of UMass students who 
were involved in the blockade of the 
reactor pressure vessel for the Sea- 
brook nuclear plant as it was driven 
along routes 1 and 95 though New 

Hampshire and Massachusetts, 
were arrested. 

SCANN had planned a demonstra- 
tion against nuclear power before 
the accident at Three Mile Island oc- 
curred. The incident triggered mas- 
sive response throughout the coun- 
try and some 2,000 college students 
and others marched to Boston to 
present Governor Edward J. King 
with a one-way ticket to Harrisburg, 

This demonstration was the first 
student-led and organized march in 
the 3-year history of the anti-nuke 
movement. As the momentum sur- 
rounding the incident at Three Mile 
Island built, SCANN became in- 
volved in planning for the May 6 anti- 
nuke march in Washington, D.C. The 
group also organized another teach- 
in at UMass, as well as demonstrat- 
ing at the Rowe Yankee Atomic, the 
closest nuke plant to Amherst and 
one of the oldest in the country. 

But the largest turnout was for the 
march on the capital. Eight bus 
loads and over 50 cars went down to 
D.C. from the Five-College area as 
hunderds of students and others 
from the community expressed 
their anger and outrage at the gov- 
ernment and corporate duplicity 
around the issue of nuclear power. 
As the semester drew to a close, the 
group was planning for the next se- 
mester. SCANN tried to bring home 
to the campuses the truth of the 
phrase, "Better active today than 
radioactive tomorrow."

Th^^^^^^^^^pibf the school 
year, ^^^^^^W^^'s 1978 best 
picture award, "The Deer Hunter," 
showed that even if most of the 
year's filnns were mindless wastes, 
something special was about to oc- 

When the fall semester began, we 
were bored with summer remnants 
of "Grease" but quickly joined "The 
Rocky Horror PlGture Show" craze. 
"Rocky Horror," a cult film through- 
out the country's campuses, drew a 
regular weekend following at the Mt. 
farms Four theatres' midnight 
screenings until October. The 60's 
sleeper exploded into pop culture as 
viewers participated in the enter- 
tainment, shouting lines with the ac- 
tors, wearing costumes, dancing, 
and bringing props, such as rice to 
throw at the screen during the wed- 
ding scene. "Rocky Horror" also 

played on campus and the most 
popular costume ideas were imita- 
tions of the film. 

Months after "Rocky Horror's" 
first powerful replay, horror films 
again came into vogue. "Dracula," 
modeled after the original version 
with Bella Legosi, but big because of 
its original successful Broadway run 
and the dynamic charming Count in 
both — Frank Langella — was the 
most popular. But "Love At First 
Bite," starring George Hamilton, 
didn't fare as well. 

Another '60's cult film, "King of 
Hearts," continued to be a favorite 
playing often on campus and other 
local theatres. 

Woody Allen, the prolific and best- 
loved director of the year, continued 
to bombard us with his master- 
pieces. In 1978, after his award-win- 
ning "Annie Hall," he made his first 
serious film, "Interiors," a parody of 
Swedish director Ingmar Bergman's 
work. "Interiors" wasn't as appreci- 
ated as Allen's comedies, but critics 
acclaimed his effort. But "Manhat- 

tan," released in the summer, again 
treated us to Woddy's fine meta- 
humor. And as a love poem to New 
York City, the black and white film 
ranked high with the best of film art. 

Another comedy, though a silly 
one, which made its profits from stu- 
dents was "Animal House," starring 
the popular John Belushi from tele- 
vision's Saturday Night Live. A par- 
ody of fraternity life, "Animal 
House" may have partially contrib- 
uted to a renewed interest in frats. 

Foreign films, as usual, did well in 
Amherst — an area which special- 
izes in showing art films: indepen- 
dently made films, foreign films, sur- 
real cinema, and old American films. 
Besides the legendary, "King of 
Hearts," "Bread and Chocolate," an 
Italian comedy, was big here, and 
Ingmar Bergman's film of the year, 
"Autumn Sonata," starring his fa- 
vorite actresses, Liv Ullman and In- 
grid Bergman, was well-done, al- 
though his "darkfilms" were becom- 
ing tiresome. 

Sally Hyde (Jane Fonda, an officer's wife and Luke Martin (Jon Voigfit), a disabled war 

veteran, enjoy a meal at her beach home in "Coming 
Home. " a United Artist release. 

After the success of "Star Wars" 
and greater knowledge of special ef- 
fects technology, a few films did well 
in this area though not enough. 
"Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" 
was a joke. Even "Alien" and "Dra- 
cula," while they employed keen 
special effects, used the technology 
to make the grotesque. A '50's re- 
make, "Invasion of the Bodys- 
natchers," was superb, and "Super- 
man," well done as a satire and ex- 
plosive in special effects was a hit. 
Next to the "Deer Hunter," "The 
China Syndrome" was the most po- 
litical film of the year. Released early 
in 1979, the anti-nuke film starred 
reknowned activist Jane Fonda, The 
first big film made dealing with the 
relevant energy issue and suggest- 
' ing that big business prefered profit 
over safety, challenged apathetics 
and pro-nukes. Yet, "China Syn- 
drom's" luckiest break was its coin- 
cidental timing — weeks before the 
world's first nuclear accident in Har- 
risburg, Pa. The Collegian review of 
"The China Syndrom" also coinci- 
dentally appeared on the same day 
as the accident occured. Newspa- 
pers were filled with debates over 
the cause of nuclear energy and the 
validity of the movie. 

But "The Deer Hunter" was th 
film of the year. A graphic, emotion- 
al, and symbolically powerful state- 
ment about the Vietnam War, it was 
the first time since the war that 
Americans left their mournful si- 
lence and guilt and attempted to un- 
derstand the dilemma of the pre- 
vious decade. An earlier film, "Com- 
ing Home," was weak politically yet 
came to light in the wake of "The 
Deer Hunter." "Coming Home" 
starred Jane Fonda and Jon Voight 
who won the 1978 best actress and 
best actor awards for the film. 

Critics and columnists filled news- 
papers discussing just how accurate 
"The Deer Hunter" was in depicting 
the war. Controversy and argu- 

ments about whether the film was 
merely meant to be symbolic or 
should have been a documentary 
abounded. Many felt that scenes de- 
picting Americans being tortured by 
North Vietnamese and Russian Rou- 
lette being played were inaccurate 
or exaggerated. Letters to the Editor 
about the film filled the Collegian 
editorial page, as well as most news- 
papers. And finally, after much delay 
over-budgeting, and extensive pub- 
licity, Francis Ford Coppolla's 
"Apocalypse Now," was finally re- 
leased in the summer. White one of 
the most graphic and artistic films in 
film history, Coppola was criticized 
for a nonchalant ending. 

Yet although none of these films 
offered any answers, they at least 
lead the '70's to end on a thoughtful

Power trips 

The 1978-79 academic year saw 
the UMass Student Government As- 
sociation engulfed in controversey 
over the misappropriation of stu- 
dent funds by tw/o S.G.A. officers re- 
sulting in the political demise of a 
Student Senate Speaker and the 
Student Attorney General. It cast a 
shadow over more important issues 
such as a $12 increase in the Stu- 
dent Activities Tax fee and a $25 a 
week pay raise for S.G.A. officers. 

In February of 1979, Student Sen- 
ate Speaker Brian DeLima, a colorful 
figure on campus, was found guilty 
by a student judiciary board of mak- 
ing personal phone calls to Hawaii 
on senate phones and was made to 
pay back over $200 in telephone 
charges. DeLima did not run for re- 
election to his post in March. 

"March comes in like a lion ..." 
and so Student Attorney General 
Robin Adams levelled charges of 
voter fraud in the previous Octo- 
ber's S.G.A. election, citing new evi- 
dence of ballot box stuffing. Both 
sets of candidates involved in that 
October conquest were in the run- 
ning in the spring election. Less than 
two weeks later, Dean of Students 
William F. Field ruled that Continuing 
Education students could not run for 
S.G.A. posts, thus eliminating candi- 
date Peter Graham who was to have 
been teamed with Cindy Thomas in 
a rematch against Tyson Hensleigh. 

The continuing education deci- 
sion, initiated by Adams, was sus- 
pected as a move to offer up Thom- 
as and Graham as "scapegoats" in 
an effort to disqualify Continuing 
Education Student Brian DeLima 
from a re-election race, should he 
have decided to run for a position. 

But if political in-fighting resulted 
in scars to one political face, so it did 
to another, as March 7, saw the Stu- 
dent Senate vote to rescind Attor- 
ney General Adams. She was even- 
tually reinstated, but did not reapply 
for the position with the new student 

On March 15, the students voted 
the status quo out and put South- 
west Assembly President Rich La- 
Voice and Brian Burke in as co-presi- 
dents, with a 56 percent landslide 
victory. LaVoice was designated as 
the student trustee, while Burke ran 
things on the home front. 

March was also the month the 
senate approved a pay increase 
from $45 a week for its officers to 
paying them an hourly rate of $3.50. 

In April, the Student Senate elect- 
ed the coordinator of the Student 
Center for Educational Research 
and Advocacy, David Barenberg, as 
its new speaker. The senate also en- 
dorsed the concept of a mandatory 
"G-Core" which would require stu- 
dents to take courses on racism, 
sexism and other topics with the 

hopes that increased awareness will 
lessen prejudice. 

The month of May saw the stu- 
dent population go against the na- 
tion's tax-cutting fever, when they 
voted in favor of the senate's pro- 
posed $12 increase of the Student 
Activities fee, thus providing rev- 
enue to liquidate deficits in student 
groups' budget. 

Politicking as usual continued in 
May, with new co-presidents Burke 
and LaVoice failing to get their Attor- 
ney General nominee, Ann Bolger, 
approved by the senate. The search 
committee had rated Julie Robert- 
son, a black woman, as the number 
one candidate, and Bolger as num- 
ber two. William Pierce was named 
acting attorney general. 

S.G.A. treasurer James O'Connell, 
who was re-elected in March, was 
found to have abused his Student 
Senate credit card privileges in the 
senate auto pool, by charging up a 
bill of over $400 in car repairs and 
gas for his own car. 

If the UMass Student Government 
Association is any example, it seems 
as if this generation is devoid of any 
positive effects from the Watergate 
scandals. It's as if the S.G.A. and the 
power-breaking forces connected 
with them are a small scale example 
of the corruption and inequities that 
go on outside in the real world.

to Combat 

During the 1978-79 academic 
year a coalition came tcgetiner to 
actively deal with racial tensions at 
UMass that for too long continued 
unanswered. On February 8, 1979, a 
press conference was held to an- 
nounce formally the Campaign to 
Combat Racism. It was not done by 
guilt ridden liberals with nothing else 
to do. It came about by a committed 
multi-racial coalition of students 
with diverse backgrounds. Com- 
posed of both students and staff 
workers in various areas, they made 
a call and a challenge to all to join in 
a campaign against racism. 

Endorsements came from the 
Student Senate as well as individual 
faculty and students. They support- 
ed a major effort because they rec- 
ognized the deep need for one. The 
school year ended with numerous 
incidents that involved violence, 
property damage and death. The 
campaign utilized the press, posters, 
forums and petitions to heighten 
awareness of this pervasive and de- 
structive problem. It called for, as an 
initial start, the renaming of the li- 
brary and the Fine Arts Center after 
W.E.B. Dubois and Edward "the 
Duke" Ellington, respectively — two 
African-Americans who in their life- 
time made great contributions to 

Nana Shashibe 

American civilization, but gained lit- 
tle recognition for their achieve- 
ments. Committee members pre- 
sented a curriculum change propos- 
al called the Human Awareness 
Core, designed to institutionalize 
anti-racism as a necessary aca- 
demic priority. The committee be- 
lieves that the combatting of racism 
should be an integral part of our 

The efforts during the 1978-79 
year were only the beginning of a 
process aimed at affecting the qual- 
ity of life on campus and at home. It 
must be recognized that racism is 
rampant in our society, that solu- 
tions cannot be diluted by compro- 
mise, and that a long and dedicated 
campaign must be waged. 

Racism is not a social ill of the 
past; it is part of an uninterrupted 
litany of despair that America con- 
tinues to reserve for those not born 
with white skin. Racism is not only 
an act of uneducated bigots but is 
perpetuated by and serves the inter- 
ests of the highest incomes, govern- 
ment officials in the most crucial po- 
sitions and educators with the high- 
est honors available. 

The committee's commitment to 
this campaign is critical. We cannot 
allow ourselves to leave school con- 
sidering ourselves educated, with- 
out recognizing the loss that this 
prevailing illness has caused. All of 
us must share the responsibility of 
eradicating this debasing social ill, in 
order to secure for the future a just 
and humane way of life.

Women's Weeic 

Hundreds of UMass and area 
women participated in an extended 
10-day celebration of International 
Women's Week during March, 1979. 

International Women's Day was 
born March 8, 1857, when women 
garment workers marched from the 
lower East Side to uptown Manhat- 
tan demanding higher pay, a 10- 
hour work day and equality for all 
women in work. Three years later 
these women formed a union. Forty- 
eight years after the first march 
thousands of women needle trades 
workers marched again and pro- 
claimed March 8 as International 
Women's Day. New demands were 
added — legislation abolishing child 
labor and insuring women's suf- 

Women all over the world have 
celebrated this day. In 1917 one 
strike in Moscow sparked the Rus- 
sian Revolution. 

In Iran, thousands of women took 
to the streets on March 8, 1979 to 
protest some of the policies of the 
Ayatolla Kohmehni regarding wom- 
en, soon after his takeover of the 
Iranian government. One policy was 
the encouragement given to women 
to wear the traditional black "cha- 
dor" or veil, as opposed to western 
style dress such as skirts or pants. 

At UMass, students celebrated 
womanhood by exploring the theme 
"Struggle and Revolution" and lea- 
ding/participating in workshops on 
women's health, self-defense, lesbi- 
anism, abortion, the law, class strug- 
gles and other topics. 

Noted radical feminist authors An- 
drea Dworkin and Mary Daly spoke 
at Smith College, while Queen Moth- 
er Moore, an 80-year-old black 
woman who was associated with the 
Marcus Garvey and Malcom X move- 
ments spoke on the black struggle in 

Feminist singers Holly Near and 
Meg Christian with Judie Thomas on 
piano entertained a capacity crowd 
as they sang of women's lives, strug- 
gles and emotions. 

Asian-American singer Nubuko 
Miyamoto with Benny Yee also per- 
formed during the week. Two perfor- 
mances by Little Flags Theater, a 
multi-racial, multi-aged trope ex- 
plored people's struggles in "Winds 
of the People," and the daydreams 
of a union organizer who ponders 
the theories of Karl Marx while 
awaiting the arrival of her boyfriend 
Mark, in "Marx on Her Mind."

After a year long struggle that 
forced Shah Mohammed Reza Pah- 
lavi out of his country, the exiled 
Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini re- 
turned to Iran February 1, 1979 to 
establish a religously oriented Isla- 
mic republic. 

The 78-year-old Moslem patriarch 
began what at that time was his "un- 
official" regime, by challenging the 
provisional government and leaders 
appointed by the shah before he fled 
the country. Khomeini also warned 
Americans and others that he would 
"cut the hands" of foreign influence 
over his country. 

After a brief but bloody struggle, 
Khomeini toppled the provisional 
government and with overwhelming 
support from the Iranian people and 
the army, ended the 2,500-year-old 
Iranian monarchy and replaced it 
with the beginnings of an Islamic 

The Shah, whose regime was 
termed tyrannical, corrupt and over- 
ly westernized, fled to Morrocco and 
later to Mexico. 

Other charges against the Shah 
included using a secret police, the 
SAVAK, creating a heavy depen- 
dence on foreign goods and running 
the country on bribery. 

Students at UMass and across the 
globe joined in the struggle to expell 
the Shah from Iran. A large sign that 
hung in the Student Union building 
lobby reading "Death to the Shah" 
caused much controversy on cam- 
pus. Some people were offended by 
the death wish, saying it was advo- 
cating an attitude similar to the one 
being protested. 

Khomeini, during his first months 
as Iran's leader banned all forms of 
music, ordered the executions of 
many of the Shah's friends and po- 
litical associates, cut back Iran's oil 
shipments to the U.S. and ordered 
the death of men and women adul- 

Passing the Salt II - 

Triumph and Trepidation 

After nearly seven years of asking, 
the SALT was nearly passed this 
Spring when the US and Soviet 
Union leaders agreed in principle on 
a new Strategic Arms Agreement 
Treaty to regulate their strategic 
arms race. 

A triumphant President Jimmy 
Carter called it "the single most im- 
portant achievement that could pos- 
sibly take place in my lifetime." 

But he was refering to the ratifica- 
tion by the US senate of the 80-page 
19-article treaty which is in doubt at 
this writing. 

The four main objectives of SALT II 
go significantly beyond SALT I in set- 
ting both numbers and types of the 
two superpowers' long-range weap- 

1. Sets ceilings on missiles and 
bombers, with sub-limits on 
MIRV's and heavy bombers 
armed with cruise missiles. 

2. Reduces existing levels of stra- 
tegic weapons - applies only to 
Soviets, who will have to dis- 
mantle 270 of their older weap- 

3. Bars increases in missile sizes 
and warhead loads. 

4. Equalizes numbers (but not 
power) of strategic weapons of 
both countries. 

Since the Carter Administration 
claimed that the treaty did not ham- 
per any US plans for modernizing or 
developing its weapons, liberal Sena- 
tors like Hatfield, McGovern and 
Proxmire threatened to vote against 
ratification: "We reserve the right to 
vote against any SALT proposal that 
does not fundamentally curb the 
arms race." 

But the greatest criticism by op- 
ponents of SALT II dealt with the 
matter of verification. American dis- 
trust of Soviet integrity became the 
subject of screaming headlines in 
the press and rhetoric on Capitol 
Hill. An early leak of a secret Con- 
gressional briefing by CIA director 
Stansfield Turner quoted the Admi- 
ral as saying it would take five years 
(to 1984) to restore US capability 
for monitoring Soviet missile tests 
that had been lost in Iran. Secretary 
of Defense Harold Brown acknowl- 
edged such a delay to regain all of 
the Iranian loss, but he insisted it 
would take only "about a year" to 
restore enough capability to verify 
that the Russians were complying 
with SALT II. 

Thus, with the Liberals on the one 

hand unhappy that SALT II does not 
go far enough to eliminate all nucle- 
ar weapons (Sen. Henry Jackson 
compared Carter's Soviet policy to 
Neville Chamberlain's handlig of Hit- 
ler in 1939) and the Conservatives 
on the other, who believe that any 
treaty is better than no treaty at all, 
the political battle is joined to mus- 
ter the 67 senatorial votes needed 
to ratify. 

Meanwhile, the Vienna Summit in 
mid-June between Carter and Presi- 
dent Leonid Brezhnev revealed 
more than SALT. The aging (72) So- 
viet leader showed his infirmities - 
he is said to be suffering from cere- 
bral arteriosclerosis (hardening of 
the arteries of the brain, that results 
in impaired memory and concentra- 

As the meeting between the two 
leaders was about to begin. Carter 
pointed out that good relations be- 
tween their two countries would pre- 
serve peace for the entire world. To 
which Brezhnev replied, "God will 
not forgive us, if we fail." Afterward, 
a Soviet spokesman tried to substi- 
tute "future generations" for 
"God", in keeping with the atheistic 
nature of the Communistic society. 
But Carter had already written 
Brezhnev's statement on a sheaf of 
yellow paper, so struck was he by 
the religious flavor of Brezhnev's re- 
mark, according to a Newsweek re- 
porter. Newsweek also reported 
that "... immediately after Brezh- 
nev made his remark, Soviet Foreign 
Minister Andrei Gromyko pointed a 
finger at the ceiling and added, "You 
know, that's the guy up there." 

And when Carter arrived for the 
first such summit between the lead- 
ers of the two countries in five years, 
he told a Schwechat Airport crowd 
that "We have no illusions that this 
agreement will rid the world of dan- 
ger once and for all, nor will it end all 
differences between our two na- 
tions. But we are confident that 
SALT II will widen the areas of coo- 
peration and reduce substantially 
the dangers of nuclear holocaust." 

One thing is certain: whether the 
SALT is passed or not, it may well be 
the last hurrah for the two leaders 
who have asked for it - Brezhnev's ill 
health may force him to retire within 
the next 18 months; Carter's politi- 
cal troubles may make him a one- 
term president within the same time

Cross-Burning At Amherst College 

On April 16, 1979 in the early 
hours of the morning, a cross was 
ignited in front of Charles Drew 
House, an all-black residence hall at 
one of the two most prestigious pri- 
vate institutions in the area — Am- 
herst College. 

The blazing symbol, characteristic 
of a Klu Klux Klan mentality, marked 
a series of conflicts that would weigh 
heavy on the school while stirring 
the majority of the Five-College pop- 
ulation, awakening a portion of it to 
the injustices inherent in our system 
and simultaneously nursing a seg- 
ment of others who longed to exper- 
ience the action and mood of the 

The cross-burning spurred a pre- 
dominately black student sit-in at 
the college's administration build- 
ing. Converse Hall, and a one-day 
moratorium on classes was held, fo- 
rums and workshops held in their 

The sit-in action was further justi- 
fied by five demands drafted by the 
Black Students' Union and support- 
ed by Five-College sympathizers 
who believed that blacks and other 
minorities were being molded by the 
administration on a white, racist as- 
sembly line. The demands called for 
the administrative institution of a 
five-year-old student-run orientation 
program for incoming black fresh- 
men; more student input in the se- 
lection of deans and faculty mem- 
bers; an increase in minority faculty 
members; the divestment of Ameri- 
can corporate stock holdings in 
south Africa; and the college's con- 
tinued financial support of a Spring- 
field-based summer youth program. 

While outrage, disgust and fear 
were expressed throughout the 
Five-College area that such an inci- 
dent had occurred. Amherst College 
President John William Ward an- 

nounced just two days later, before 
an all-college assembly, that the 
cross had been set ablaze by one or 
more black students. The materials 
used to construct the cross, he said, 
had come from the basement of 
Charles Drew House. 

Few appeared to be alarmed at 
Ward's statement. Some — both 
black and white — felt betrayed and 
still others acknowledged, off-the- 
record, the college president's find- 

The college's black community 
disavowed any knowledge of those 
responsible for the crossburning, 
and the sit-in at Converse Hall con- 
tinued, shifting in forcus from the 
fiery catalyst to the five demands. 

Frustrated administrators who 
wanted to clear the building of the 
protestors entered negotiations 
with black student leaders in an at- 
tempt to settle the demands. After a 
weekend of day into night closed 
door sessions, an impasse was de- 
clared by the students, and at 5:30 
a.m. on April 23, an undetermined 
number of Amherst and Five-College 
students chained and bolted all the 
building's entrances, threatening to 
remain in Converse Hall until their 
demands were met by the adminis- 

When a refusal to comply with ad- 
ministrative orders to vacate the 
building created an even tenser at- 
mosphere, an ultimatum was issued 
— all Amherst College students who 
remained inside the building after 1 
p.m. would be automatically sus- 
pended from the institution. The re- 
sult was 68 exiled students. 

After groping for a face-saving 
compromise one day later, the two 
opponents came to a preliminary 
agreement, the students ended the 
blockade of Converse Hall on April 
25, after Ward agreed to eight condi- 

tions, independent of the five de- 
mands. The conditions stipulated 
the students be reinstated in the col- 
lege and that Ward immediately and 
formally respond to the initial five 

In doing so on April 27 in a 12- 
page statement. Ward made no con- 
cessions in the administration's 
stance on the issues and events 
which had shrouded the college for 
the past 10 days. The 68 students 
were reinstated. However, they 
were still subject to disciplinary 
measures if a faculty member chose 
to file suit against them with the col- 
lege judicial board, a group of three 
faculty members and three stu- 

Charged with "serious violations 
of the College's Statement on Free- 
dom of Expression and Dissent and 
Statement on Respect for Persons," 
the 68 students were tried before 
the judicial board and received as 
sentences a period of two days sus- 
pension logged on their records for 
the time they spent barricaded in- 
side Converse Hall. 

Meanwhile, classes at , Amherst 
College and ended and Ward refused 
to name two black men he had sus- 
pended after charging them with the 
crossburning. The students, both 
residents of Charles Drew House, 
were forced to leave the campus 
within 24 hours of receiving their 
suspension notices and formally 
charged with the incident. 

The two men were later tried be- 
fore the judicial board and were rein- 
stated in the college. As a disciplin- 
ary action against them, the college 
refused to acknowledge their aca- 
demic presence at the college in 
their records for the spring 1979 se-

The Ups snd Dnujns a 

The effects of the building boom 
on the Amherst campus, a boom 
which spanned the whole decade 
from 1963 to 1973, were never 
more apparent than over the 1978- 
79 academic year. 

These ten years resulted in an as- 
tounding aggregation of buildings 
which, to some members of the Uni- 
versity community, has given the 
campus a cluttered, unplanned look. 
Students who attended the Universi- 
ty during this period of accelerated 
growth became well acquainted with 
the art of dodging construction vehi- 
cles and side-stepping construction 

Buildings like the entire Southwest 
residential complex, the Campus 
Center and its accompanying Ga- 
rage, the Fine Arts Center, the Li- 
brary, the Graduate Research Cen- 
ter and the Sylvan Area dormitories 
are a few examples of the over- 
whelming expansion which has tak- 
en place. 

Those students who were enrolled 
during the construction period may 
well turn out to be more fortunate 
than the later students who are 
supposed to enjoy the completed fa- 
cilities. Rather than taking advan- 
tage of the new facilities which these 
buildings should represent, students 
were faced with the distinct possibil- 
ity of not being able to use them at 

One by one, these structures are 
falling victim to an alarming rate of 
early deterioration. The cases are 
well-documented. The inside rain- 
storm plagues the campus Center 
whenever the outside weather con- 
ditions are adverse and the crum- 
bling and falling concrete in the 
Campus Center Garage, poses a per- 
petual safety hazard. Taken sepa- 
rately these cases of building decay 
may not appear alarming, but to- 
gether, and in the relatively short 
period since their completion, the 
effect of this deterioration is stag-

Authority, an agency which was ini-

The UMBA has enjoyed a long his- 
tory of cooperation with the Univer- 
sity, but in 1979, this relationship 
became strained at best. The Spe- 
cial Commission Concerning State 
and County Buildings, chaired by 
Amherst College President Ward, 
has announced its intention to "in-

This investigation was brought 
about by the alarming rate of dete- 
rioration experienced in Building Au- 
thority projects. 

The role of students in this entire 
affair reaches far beyond the incon- 
venience of dodging falling bricks, 
and beyond even the obvious safety 
hazard of parking or walking through

a garage with one eye raised sky- 
ward. The students have been 
asked, and will be expected to as- 
sume the financial burden of cor- 
recting these design and construc- 
tion mistakes. 

Much of the attention given to 
these problems was centered 
around paying for the necessary re- 
pairs. The bantering which charac- 
terized these building deficiencies 
focused on "where is the money go- 
ing to come from to do the neces- 
sary repairs?" Up until the late 70's 
it was a matter of shifting funds from 
one department to another, in order 
to raise the needed dollar amounts. 

A perfect example was the hike in 
on-campus parking fees, which os- 
tensibly would be directed to park- 
ing lot upkeep and repair. A consid- 
erable portion of this increased rev- 
enue was also earmarked for repairs 
to the Campus Center Garage, a 
"self-amortizing" building, accord- 
ing to the UMBA. 

It is safe to say that the garage 
represented only the tip of the ice- 
berg. The Library was the target of 
much campus and area concern 
since its completion in 1973. 

Good-natured references to the 
phallic quality of the new structure 
soon gave way to more serious con- 
cerns. The wind-tunnel effect exper- 
ienced by everyone who travels near 
the building's base, the functional 
aspects of the building as a library, 
and the dancer of the crumbling 
brick facade, steeped the library in 
constant controversy. 

The time for some sort of effective 
student action is most certainly at 
hand. The legacy which has been left 
to us by our predecessors is a crum- 
bling, deteriorating campus. We 
must make sure that we do not con- 
tinue to pass on this legacy to future 
members of the University commu- 

Hopefully, the investigation of the 
Ward Commission will set to rest 
claims of faulty construction and 
shoddy workmanship, which have 
emerged as possible explanations 
for the unusual rate of deterioration 
observed in campus buildings. What- 
ever the reasons behind this dete- 
rioration, the ultimate goals of any 
investigation should be twofold: 
first, to effect the repairs which are 

necessary to reinstate the structural 
integrity of the damaged facilities, 
and second, to preclude the possibil- 
ity that such unacceptable construc- 
tion will become the rule, rather 
than the exception, in any future 
campus construction.

Always a 

For the approximate 20,000 stu- 
dents who flood UMass each year, 
the problem of choosing and living in 
a dwelling- on or off campus- is a 
recurring one. 

Students who choose to live in 
dormitories, most of them Fresh- 
men and Sophomores, pay as much 
as $100 a month to share half a 
room, many of which are missing 
items supposed to be included. In 
addition, dorm residents are expect- 
ed to share bathroom facilities with 
the other 20 some-odd students on 
their floor and laundry facilities with 
the inhabitants of the whole dormi- 
tory. Awfully crowded quarters! 

They begin to converge upon the 
rural town of Amherst in late August, 
and it is inevitable that some will not 
be assigned to dorms due to late 
receipt of payments, overcrowded 
buildings, and computer foul-ups. As 
Dean of Students William Field says, 
"After about a week, things settle 
down. We know we'll have room for 
them; it's just that the computer 
doesn't know it yet." 

That constitutes about 10,000 or 
so students. But what about the rest 
of them? How does the other half 
live? Off-campus, that's where. And 
the problems related to that method 
of living are sometimes enough to 
make dormitory-living seem like an 

As a 1975 report by the Student 
Center for Educational Research 
and Advocacy (SCERA) says, 
"21,000 people rent their homes in 
Amherst. 87% rent from one of nine 
landlords. Eight private landlords 
own 70% of all the apartments in 
town." In addition, students make 
their homes in the neighboring com- 
munities of Belchertown, Hadley, 
Northampton and Sunderland. 

Some of the problems that make 
off-campus living inferior to dorm- 
dwelling are: parking, external and 
internal repairs, high security depos- 
its, absentee landlords, and rent in- 
creases- to name a few. 

JoAnne Levenson, Director of Off- 
Campus Housing for the University, 
says that students get "ripped off" 
by landlords, who know they're deal- 
ing with a transient community who 
"will pay whatever prices they 

In October of 1978, the rent con- 
trol question was again brought to 
the Amherst Town Meeting, rejected 
by the Board of Selectmen, and sent 
to the polls for a November referen- 
dum, where it was defeated, 1,915- 
1,319. Mary Wentworth, a leader of 
the Rent Control Now Committee, 
owed the proposition's failure to un- 
registered voters, many of them stu- 
dents, who were potential allies. 

The rent control referendum was 
defeated in 1976, the last time it 
was proposed, but Wentworth says 
that happened because private ho- 
meowners "just aren't sympathetic 
with the problems of tenants." It is 
interesting to note that the question 
passed 340-272 in precinct one, 
(where Pufton Village is located) and 
in precinct three, the question 
passed by a vote of 83-88, where 
UMass voters reside. Clearly, if ten- 
ants had their way, if they would mo- 
bilize, rent control would pass. 

But just what is rent control ? Most 
communities try to achieve the fol- 
lowing reforms: 

1. Rent rollbacks (to some pre- 
vious date) 

2. Regulated rent increases and 

3. Public disclosure of landlords' 
financial records 

4. Establishment of a Rent Control 
Board, to enforce the law 

5. Landlord-tenant negotiated 

This past year, members of the 
Colonial Village Tenants Union went 
to court to fight attempts by their 
landlord, Louis R. Cohn of West 
Hartford, Connecticut, to raise rents 
and make them sign a lease written 
by his attorney. 

Colonial Village tenants wanted to 
keep the lease they had negotiated 
the previous year, which had legal 
protection clauses and restrictions 
on impositions of rent increases. 
Cohn raised the rents, and some of 
the tenants did not respond on their 
intentions to remain or leave the 
complex. As a result, Cohn served 
eviction notices, forcing 42 of his 
200 tenants to go to court. 36 of the 
tenants either moved or "made 
deals" with the landlord, but six ten- 
ants stuck to their guns claiming 
they never received notice of the 
rent increases, as was stipulated in 
their leases. 

When Hampshire District Court 
Judge Sean Dunphy rendered his 
decision in September 1979, affect- 
ing a "put up or get out" choice for 
the six tenants, they decided to ap- 
peal his decision and to file damage 

suits against Cohn and his agents, 
Kamins Real Estate. 

As the year was drawing to a 
close, the Colonial Village Six were 
still settling their dispute, vowing to 
organize other tenants in Pufton Vil- 
lage, Southwood and the other com- 
plexes. Their plan of action- to get 
the rent control referendum on the 
1980 ballot.

Always a Blast 

UMass was the subject of unde- 
sired national notice during spring 
semester after an arson attempt 
was made on the life of a head of 
residence the first evening campus 
activities resumed after interses- 

Thomas K. Whitford, the 22-year- 
old head of residence of Pierpont, 
awoke late that night to find his 
apartment filled with smoke. The 
door had been set ablaze after 
someone had apparently broken 
into a janitor's closet and discon- 
nected the circuit to the smoke de- 
tector in the apartment. 

Whitford escaped through a win- 
dow — jumping about 25 feet to the 
safety of the concrete pavement be- 
low. After treatment at University 
Health Services, Whitford was quick- 
ly removed from the campus. 

UMass police began an intensive, 
hushed investigation, aided by the 
state fire marshall's office. Pierpont, 
a dorm widely known for its student 
political activisim and alleged drug 
trafficking, made newspaper head- 
lines once again. 

To compensate for lack of an au- 
thorized dorm leader, a residential 
staff member was stationed in the 
dorm during weekday working 
hours, while at night, an unarmed 
guard was posted. 

Whitford returned to campus sev- 
eral weeks later and was given a new 
job working with the Orchard Hill- 
Central dorm cluster system. No ar- 
rests were made in the case, and 
University police concluded the se- 
mester with a "no comment" on the 
status of their investigation.

A fire alarm, shrill and piercing in the early morning 
quiet of a sleeping campus can be a frightening exper- 
ience. The mind gropes to awaken as your body fumbles 
to react and through it all you're still not sure if the fire is 
real or someone's idea of a funny joke. 

In October of 1977, 1 awoke one evening to the sounds 
of fire alarms clanging the residents of Mary Lyons to 
wakefulness and sending us all clammering to the halls. 
My roommate and I dressed quickly, putting trenchcoats 
over our pajamas and half -tying our sneakers. Throwing 
open the door to our room, we were met by a smoke-filled 
corridor and dozens of other terrified eyes of the the other 
residents. I was still groggy from sleep, but one of the 
remain-visions of that night was of a guy standing in the 
hall not allowing us to pass down the back staircase and 
directing us all to a safe exitway. 

The next morning, after hysteria had turned to stories 
of heroism, we learned that our neighbors from Thatcher 
House had rushed to the scene, directing us out of the 
dorm, checking rooms for those who could literally 
"sleep through a fire" and offering rooms, blankets and 
munchies to those of us whose rooms had been smoke 

Neighborly concern welled up again this spring when 
women in the UMass community were made aware of a 
serious rape problem and potential rapist loose in the 
UMass area. Of the rapes reported at this time, the loca- 
tion seemed to be consistently in the Northeast/Sylvan 
area. This was cause for a certain amount of wariness on 
every woman's part, but nighttime studying at the li- 
brary, outside exercise, and a certain degree of mobility 
about the campus was still necessary. A serious problem 
did exist. 

Once again, it was our neighbors to the rescue. Posted 
in the bathrooms and halls we found notices informing 
us that the following area men would be willing to help 
during this crisis. If we needed an escort to our car parked 
in a far lot or someone to walk us back from the library, 
we were instructed to call and request an escort. For many 
of us it was a heaven-sent peace of mind. 

In the "quad", we're all like siblings in a large family 
which, in the same sense, is true of UMass as a whole. But 
how else could you explain the moment of silence that 
inevitably comes after every Thatcher-Mary Lyons ob- 
scenity screaming match? 

After an exchange of insults that would make a truck 
driver blush, there emerges out of the darkness, in true 
Walton style, two innocent voices: Good-night Thatcher, 
Good-night Mary Lyons".

Early in December, the snow started 
to fall-first in small flakes which grew 
bigger and bigger before our eyes. As 
we watched, distracted in classrooms 
of English and PoliSci, the frozen 
ground turned white and the campus 
disappeared in a blanket of snow and 
stark cement walls. 

We all rushed through dinner that 

night, boisterous and excited under 
the watchful eyes of the dining com- 
mons ladies. The first snow! The 
streets were becoming slick and the 
ground had the illusion of softness. 

Like thieves in the night, we planned 
our strategy. The trays we had carried 
our food on would be hidden-beneath 
the folds of a down jacket, in the 

book-stretched frame of a back pack 
or tucked neatly in an art student's 
portfolio. The former hiding places of 
brownies and bread now had a more 
important mission. By whatever 
means, however, the mass exodus of 
trays would happen-as it had hap- 
pened on snowy days since the begin- 
ning. To us it was a coup. 
Once outside we were jubilant. We 

slid and skidded, falling and laughing 
in the fresh snow. The voices of hun- 
dreds of other students bounced off 
the brick walls of Central as everyone 
climbed THE HILL which led to Van 
Meter. How we had cursed that hill 
before when books were heavy and 
legs tired. But today we were the con- 
querers of Everest and our thrill was 
yet to come. 

Squatting down on the thin piece of 
plastic which protected tender other- 
sides from jagged rocks and bare 
ground, we psyched ourselves to run 
the course. 

Like Jean Claude Killey, a deep breath, 
a prayer, a pat on the back and . . . 
whooshhh, you're off. The blurr of 
brick and white, multi-colored down 

jackets and the roar of screams and 
music screech by until you hear nor 
see no more. It's high that freezes and 
nips and lasts but a few seconds final- 
ly dumping you in the snow laughing 
and scrambling. Like an addict you 
climb for more. Traying . . . the ulti- 
mate high. • 


"Excuse me, is this room 304 Field 

No one answered, but as I peered 
around the corner of what was to be 
my new home, I saw a young woman, 
leotard-clad, legs crossed, ohmming. 

My father was just around the corner, 
huffing and puffing with one quarter 
of my earthly belongings on his back. 
It was my first time away from home 
and I was scared. 

My new roommate was a junior in 
environmental studies, a vegetarian, a 
"free thinker", into sex and some 
home grown drugs and I wasn't quite 
sure what I was into. 

My mother had packed peanut butter 
and bread, sewn labels on my clothes, 
bought me new underwear and 
opened a new checking account for 
me. I was wet behind the ears as well 
as under the armpits. I watched my 
parents station wagon drive away 
feeling the sting of the cut umbilical 

That night I went to a get-together for 
freshmen. We all had similar fears 
and problems and we talked late into 
the night. Walking back to my room, 
I searched for room 304. At first I 
thought I might be in the wrong dor- 
mitory. The buildings were all similar 
and it was possible to make that mis- 
take. There below the number 304, 
was a pillow with what looked like my 
pajamas on it, my toothbrush and a 
note with someone else's handwrit- 

"My boyfriend came up for the night. 
Hope you don't mind finding some- 
place else to sleep. Thanks." 

I was in shock. I roamed the halls 
looking for a place to sleep. The 
lounge was wide open and florescent 
lighted, the floors cold, the studies 
impersonal. The tears must have been 
falling; a kind-hearted senior invited 
me into her room where she had a 
sleeping bag that I could use. 

Over tea and music, I let out all the 
fears and tears which I'm sure she had 
heard a hundred times before. She lis- 
tened, advised and empathized and 
the next day things looked brighter. 

Learning to cope and live with all 
sorts of other people is all part of the 
UMass experience. My four years on 
Orchard Hill were great, I couldn't 
have asked for a better living arrange- 
ment. Looking back now on that first 
night, I smile. You've got to be a 
freshman before you learn to fly. 


It's springtime in Sylvan-perhaps the 
most longed for, the most enjoyed, 
and the laziest time of the three-sea- 
son calender of the UMass student. 

From high atop Cashin, the music of 
the Cars carries over to the observa- 
tory below which sun worshippers 
dot the orchard with carelessly dis- 
carded clothing. A few have brought 
their books with them, even fewer are 
still trying to study. There is a sense 
of timelessness about the orchard in 

Sylvan is the suite living section of 
the university Located in the fai 

northeast corner of the campus, the 
three dorms Cashin, MacNamara and 
Brown are surrounded by lush forests 
and tempting greenery which explain 
the name of this fasciiVating complex, 
sylvan being the poetic word for for- 
est. Six rooms share a common lounge 
and bathroom facilities. Similar to 
apartment dwelling. Sylvan is a 
unique living experience at UMass. 

Suite living affords an individual a 
certain degree of privacy that cannot 
be found in other dorms. The physical 
structure of the "honeycomb " dorms 
allows individuals to mingle or re- 
treat, to paity or to study without be- 

ing forced to do some or the other 
because everyone else is. Most suites 
are composed of a random sampling 
of students which lends some credi- 
bility to the saying that "variety is the 
spice of life." Others are composed of 
like-minded students who live togeth- 
er because of common lifestyles or 
similar interests. Choice of lifestyle is 
priority in Sylvan. 

But ultimately, it is the residents of 
Sylvan who make it truly a home. In 
befriending a suitemember, one is in- 
troduced to six or seven new people 
within the suite. The lounges provide 
a comfortable atmosphere for getting 

to know one another. It's like sitting 
in your own living roon\ of your own 
home, and it quickly becomes just 
that . . . your home. 

On one floor, each lounge serves a 
different purpose. One suite lounge 
was the cooking lounge, across the 
hall the Triple B Derelict Lounge, in 
305 the television lounge (color, no 
less) and in 304 the study lounge. How 
many homes could provide such com- 

The amenities of Sylvan are many: 
WSYL at 98 on your FM dial, the Sub- 
way in the basement of MacNamara, a 

television studio, a hop to the orchard, 
a beautiful wooded acreage, and one of 
the nicest views of the Pioneer Valley 
on campus. 

In winter, the residents climb the slip- 
pery hill to home. Standing stark and 
lighted on the hill with a backdrop of 
trees. Sylvan can be seen from the far 
reaches of the valley. In springtime, 
the woods surrounding Sylvan come 
alive with bright moist foliage and the 
signs of human endeavor as well. To 
those who make their home here, 
nothing can beat the smell of the or- 
chard apples that drifts in on an Indi- 
an Summer afternoon. 

Sylvan may require more effort on the 
part of each individual to succeed as a 
fulfilling learning experience because 
of the nature of the suites' physical 
layout: but once the effort is made, the 
benefits accrue with geometric pro-

Ancient Rome may no longer exist, but a similar empire 
lives today with all the power and glory that once was 

Rome, in its magnificence, was a nucleus of learning, art, 
warring, and merrymaking- a capsule of concentrated power 
and energy. However, what could have been the most ad- 
vanced, productive, creative civilizations the world has 
known eventually brought about its own demise. Rome still 
lives in the reincarnated form as a small city rising out of 
the valleys in the far western region of the state-Southwest. 

Like Rome, Southwest has its many gods. The people 
have sung their praise for the Red Sox and Ali, praises that 
were deep felt by some and for others merely brought on by 
a crowd catalyst, a god in itself. The gods are praised in 
volume and number by stereos, ancient worship instru- 
ments as much praised as the gods themselves. 

Philosophers contemplate the works of Bowie and the 
Stones as well as the art created on cinderblock canvasses 
and elevator walls. Tolkien laces himself through the lives 
of the people there as did Homer in ancient Rome. 

The citizens are boisterous and sportsloving. They devot- 
edly attend the coliseum to watch their athletes beaten and 
"thrown to the lions". They wildly rejoice in their victories. 

At times, Southwest explodes for no known reason. Sud- 
denly the concentrated energy reaches is culmination and 
the screaming, the lights, the fireworks and the noise devas- 
tate the senses. Every sense is aroused. Sight is blurred by 
the masses of students. The smell of bonfires and beer 
tantalize the nostrils and the roar of voices chanting a verbal 
battle leaves one wondering whether he has passed through 
a time warp. Then suddenly, as fast as it erupted, calm 
returns, leaving the outside world shaken and wondering. 

Southwest has been ridiculed by those looking in from 
outside. But Rome, too, was a center of ridicule and scorn. 
To those living within its wall, however, no comparable 
reality exists. 

Southwest's sunsets are beautiful. And like the place it- 
self, are etched forever in the minds of those who lived 
there. Perhaps looking back to Southwest after years of 
living and experience, history and memories will treat 
Southwest as it has treated Rome . . . and understanding of 
its power, potential and beauty will be born.

Flipped Out 

A decade later, liMass has established a co-ed frat. 

1962. The beer at fraternity houses pours like water, panty raids and hazings ravage the campus, girls wear tight skirts and fishnet stockings, guys crew cut 
their hair and parade letter sweaters. 

The Deltas are on double probation for bad grades and bad behavior. But nonetheless the party is called, the house is filled with Deltas and their dates who 
slurp "Purple Jesus Juice", twist to a tune called "Louie, Louie" and later commit several dozen acts of individual perversions. A low chant begins to rock the 
house, building louder and louder it reaches a deafening crescendo . . . TO-GA . . . TO-GA . . . TO-GA!!! 

Summer 1978. National Lampoon Magazine releases a film about college pranks and fraternity hijinks based on the antics of an actual fraternity at Dartmouth 
College. Animal House quickly becomes a runaway success. The movie's most ardent fans, college students, make the film's orgiastic "toga party" the model 
for 1978-79's favorite campus happening. 

From California to Massachusetts bedsheet-clad partyers dance the night away reminiscent of pre-Vietnam War protest days. In Wisconsin as many as 10,000 
students gathered for an all-night toga party and an expected listing in the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the largest mixed drink from everything 
the partyers brought along. At Boston College, a toga party for 600 was sold out in three days whereby resourceful students scalped the $2.00 tickets for up to 
five times the original price. On campuses large and small toga partiers wave their arms, scream the toga chant and fall to the floor wiggling and writhing the 
toga dance. An unshaven little pudgy named John Belushi is elevated to fame for his silent character in Animal House, a character loved for his crassness, 
stupidity and silence. What's more the movie has produced an increased interest in the college Greek system as it was portrayed in the film. Suddenly an 
unprecedented number of students were rushing to pledge the fraternity that sponsered the best toga parties. 

In the early 1960's, the college Greek system enjoyed its heyday on college campuses nationwide. By 1969, however, student interests rapidly turned to the 
Vietnam War, political involvement and areas of national concern. The fun-loving, self-indulgent, narcissistic life of the Greek became abhorrent to those 
students interested in more immediate world concerns. Fraternities and sororities entered a decade of low enrollment, low morale and an even lower image 
amongst fellow students. 

Realizing the need to change with the times, paired with more political service and special interest activities, Greeks began to emphasize the practical and 
productive and in recent years college campuses have seen an increased interest in the Greek system. At the University of Massachusetts enrollment in 
fraternities and sororities increased twelve percent from 1978 to 1979. 

Gone are the days of closed membership, snobbish elitism, hazings and expensive membership dues. Fraternities and sororities today welcome a wide variety of 
members with diverse interests, styles and backgrounds to add to the overall diversity of each house. The stereotypical frat rat interested in booze, broads and 
bands may not be completely obsolete today but his roommate could very possibly be a philosophy major who lives on yogurt, nuts and tofu. 

The national Greek system boasts a wide diversity of famous alumni including Johnny Carson, Gerald Ford, Candice Bersen, Ronald Reagan, Sen. Henry Jackson, 
Ali McGraw, and Howard Cosell. 

The Greeks, in keeping with tradition, retain a stronghold on the majority of traditional social activity on campus. Greek Week, Homecoming, Winter Carnival, 
rush parties, formals, parent's weekends and once again toga parties are all part of the fun.

By Jim Paulin 

It seems that recently much has been said about the Sunderland bus. The 
majority of those people who are in the public eye here at UMass commute to and 
from that quaint Franklin County New Age land of apartments and tobacco barns. 

However, just so no one gets the idea that the bus from Sunderland vanishes 
after it leaves Hasbrouck, we would like to let the reading (and riding) public 
know that there is life south of Amherst. 

In other words, this is about how the other half of the Sunderland route lives 
down in South Amherst. The northern terminus of the Sunderland and South 
Amherst line is Northwood Apartments. The last stop in South Amherst is 
Southwood Apartments. 

Wild and crazy place, Southwood, due to an identity crisis caused by constant 
name changing, from part of Brittany Manor to South Meadow and now South- 
wood. So who can blame them if occasionally the confusion gets to them and they 
toss the telephone in the oven? 

And those acres of mud in South Amherst are not mud at all, but actually soggy 
black hash, made wet by overflowing beer kegs. 

Over in the beautiful all-electric houses of Riverglade, the tenants there never 
involuntarily step in the hash because they glide to and from the bus stop on all - 
electric moving sidewalks. They swim all winter in the all-electric heated swim- 
ming pool. The only hazard in Rivergald is the ever-present threat of electrocu- 
tion. The chic look is bright yellow rubber gloves and boots. This spring's 
fashions will include wet look lead-lined suits in case the nuclear reactor in the 
laundry room melts down. 

You see, Riverglade is actually a colony of the Western Massachusetts Electric 
Company, or perhaps a feudal state where the serfs know that if they don't 
appease the WMECO king with substantial monthly tributes, they will be deport- 
ed to Sunderland. 

There is no Seven-Eleven, no Store 24, no All-Star Dairy in South Amherst. Not 
even a cigarette machine. It is a strictly residential section. Merely a bedroom of 
the great center of commerce that is Amherst center. 

Amherst center-humanity of every lifestyle-from preppies to jocks to freaks to 
ROTC students. Where South Amherst denizens mingle with aliens from Sunder- 
land, Belchertown Road, Belchertown Center, Gatehouse Road, South Deerfield, 
North Amherst and even loyal Ed King partisans from Campus Shuttle Orchard 

There have been reports of people from South Amherst experiencing severe 
psychological disorientation north of the shadow of the Graduate Research Cen- 
ter. Another report from beyond the pale of Grad Research indicates that anybody 
from South Amherst caught setting foot in Puffton Village will be run through 
the planer at Cowls Lumber to make replacement soundproof walls at Puffton. 

However, we feel secure in South Amherst, which, after all, is not Southwest.

Then we devise a curtain 
from shoelaces I have collected 
ever since I could read. But 
we don't need a curtain 
and string them out the window 

instead. You feel better 
now with this new fresh air 
and your lips prepare the reed 
which farts unabashedly. 

The belly of the pipes 

is warm beside your ribs 

and you press for tone. 

We nave forgotten the neighbors,

I have no ear 

I tell you. And you take yours 
off too. 

About this time the balloons begin 

to get in the way — 

they are taped to your shoes. So 

I release them and you 

float through the skylight 

and in utter amazement I slip out 

the window down the curtain,

I think you are absent,

South of Amherst 

During April and early May 1979, several members of the university community were 
given the opportunity to spend five weeks on the island of Cuba. Cuba is so close to the 
United States and the State of Florida that it is equivalent in mileage to a trip from Amherst to 

Going to Cuba with the Venceremos Brigade, an anti-imperialist work/education project, 
gave me my first intimate looks at socialism. During the first three weeks of our stay we 
contributed to the needs of Cuba's housing shortage by taking part in the construction of 
apartment houses in the countryside. Valuable skills were learned and we were able to 
converse with Cuban workers. In the evenings various workshops were provided, intimately 
detailing aspects of Cuban society. Finally, our last two weeks in Cuba were a continuation of 
field study as we visited factories, farms, cultural institutions, schools, newspapers, beaches, 
major cities, policlinics and the monumental May Day Parade in which the entire Vencere- 
mos Brigade took part. 

The visit was significant to my life in that I was able to participate in a foreign culture of 
Cuba by living amongst its people in order to gather first-hand knowledge of what their life 
was all about. Cuba is a revolutionary society and Cuba is a socialist society, with revolution- 
ary solutions to many of its problems. I was finally able to see a country where unemploy- 
ment is non-existent and where modern free health care is an undeniable right of every 
individual. Cuba was also my first experience and perhaps the only experience in the world 
where a sincere and revolutionary solution has been applied to the question of racism; a 
problem that has afflicted and remains unsolved in every modern multiracial society in the 
world. The Cubans openly declared themselves an Afro-Latino people, acknowledging their 
pervasive African roots while eradicating racism with unprecedented swiftness. Revolution- 
ary solutions have also been applied to the question of sex where the Cuban Federation of 
Women (FMC) and the Cuban people are arresting the remaining vestiges of sexism from 
Cuban land. I witnessed no environmental pollution of Cuban air nor land, no hunger nor 
starvation, no drug addiction and no vagrancy, among others. Education at all levels includ- 
ing the university level is free and available to all Cubans, young and old. 

I was able to see how another people solve their problems; applying alternative and 
revolutionary solutions to the common problems that are afflicting people across the globe. 
These solutions are no doubt radically different and alternative to those advocated and 
practiced here in the United States. But the Cubans have omitted one very important 
characteristic from influencing their problem solving; the profit motive. Taken from the text 
book, one can only evaluate solutions along their ability to "successfully" solve problems. 
Objectively then, you tell me who is more successful. 

Perhaps the most astonishing aspect of the accomplishments of Cuban society is that all of 
this has been achieved in the wake of a political, social and economic blockade of Cuba by the 
United States. The United States has prohibited all trade, sale of essential medical and 
material supplies or sale of spare machinery parts to Cuba in an effort to choke and isolate 
the Cuban economy. Until recently the social aspect of the blockade remained fixed by 
denying pedestrian travel between the two countries while encouraging skilled workers in 
Cuba to expatriate. But popular pressure on United States' politicians has been successful in 
causing a waning of the social aspects of the blockade and now commercial travel is 
permitted between the United States and Cuba. Yet the political and more severely the 
economic aspects of the blockade remain in tact, causing undue hardship to the Cuban nation 
and its people.

Love one another, but make not a 
bond of love: 

Let it rather be a moving sea 
between the shores of your souls. 

Fill each other's cup but drink not 
from one cup. 

Give one another of your bread but 
eat not from the same loaf 

Sing and dance together and be 
joyous, but let each one of you be 

Even as the strings of a lute are 
alone though they quiver with the 
same music.

They met at UMass in February 1976 in a zoology 

class. And, they were both living in Field House on 

Orchard Hill that same year Keith Jarrett played in the 

lounge. Their first date brought them to the Student 

Union Ballroom for a showing of Bergman's Scenes From 

A Marriage. For three years they beat the UMass odds 

and maintained a relationship as best-friends and lovers. 

And on June 23, 1979 Jack Kelleher of Lowell and 

Margaret McLaughlin of Attleboro celebrated their 

wedding mass at the Newman Center. Within an hour 

the presiding priest. Father Quigley, had pronounced 

them husband and wife. 

During the spring semester of 

1979, prior to the ceremony. Jack, a 

Feb. '79 grad and Margaret, a senior 

at the time, attended a six-week 

marriage class in order that they be 

blessed at the Newman Center. 

There, they were taught what a 

marriage should be and what a 

Catholic wife should do — to say, 

"I'm sorry dear" and "You're right." 

As English and Psych majors, they 

"disagreed with everything. " But 

where the relationship began, the 

marriage was to commence-UMass. 

A week in the White Mountains 

followed a wedding night at the 

Windjammer motel 

Both are currently employed in 

the area- Jack at the Morrill Science 

Library and Margaret in North

Requiem for an Old 

I was still trying to rid the ashes resulting from a 

previous flame when we first met. So you weren't the 

wood that fueled my fire. But yours was the spark that 

had me smoking, glowing and flipping my lid. With 

human strategy you controlled the air supply. Suddenly I 

was smoking again. And, I thought I had closed the lid. I 

plotted against romance, it had only burnt me in the past. 

Casual sex was cool, hut with your coke as my fuel I 

knew this affair would last days. And it did. Then 

summer came. You drifted with the season's breeze and I 

got blown away. The spark is gone, but the flame 

remains. Baby, you can cook in my oven any day.

A Wheel-life Drama 

As I approached the house a feeling of paranoia flooded 
my senses. It was the last house on a darkened dead-end 
street. The front yard was a mess, littered with the rem- 
nants of a '57 Chevy, a broken swing-set and 3 Sear's 
steel-belted Dynaglas radials. As I drove closer I began to 
pick out more discreet debris- broken bottles, discarded 
condoms, a number of dead birds. I parked in front of the 
driveway and carried their order onto the front porch. 

The door opened to reveal a blatantly stoned man 
about six feet tall and covered with matted fur. I knew he 
was very stoned because he muttered "there's nobody 
here" and began to close the door. I grabbed the door- 
knob and announced myself, "Two large pizzas with 
extra cheese, right?" He appeared to look right through 
me aiid then indicated that I should follow him. 

As we walked from room to room, I became convinced 
that this man had been raised by a pack of wolves. The 
living debris which covered each and every room did not 
offend me, but the smell of decay which permeated the 
stale darkness did. When at last we had reached the back 
of the house, I realized we were to descend a set of stairs. 
My paranoia was quickly approaching irrational terror. 

When we reached the landing of the staircase, I was 
introduced to his three cohorts, all seated around a card 
table which featured a large bong as its centerpiece. One 
of the seated suggested that "We should roll this guy . . . 
ha . . ha ..." Ha, Ha. 

My life as a pizza delivery man began to unfold before 
my eyes as the four of them moved towards me. The 

night in Southwest when I had my car ransacked-the 
only thing taken was a complete munch for two- two 
large pizzas, one-half a dozen subs and a couple of cokes. 
Then there was the time I had to deliver three anchovy 
pizzas to Orchard Hill. Even with all the windows rolled 
down (it was December) and a lit cigarette I still couldn't 
escape the stench. Or the night I sold a pound of Colum- 
bian for a friend in ounces door to door during deliveries. 
And all the drunks I had endured- the clever drunkards, 
who would steal a glimpse of the room number on the 
box and then proceed to reveal that they were, indeed, the 
occupants of room 207, to which I replied, much to their 
chagrin, "Oh yeah, what's your phone number?" 

All these memories haunted me as the four drug-crazed 
men encircled me, forcing me to take a seat at their card 
table. The man who had let me in motioned to the bong. 
Then he said but one word- "many." Many bong hits 
before I would be allowed to leave. I steeled myself in

In a cold sweat, I awoke. My hands were trem- 
bling as I threw back the covers and reached foi- 
my bedside lamp. The lamp was nowhere to be 
found. I cautiously hung my legs over the edge o^ 
the bed and began to pick my way across th| 
debris. Guided by the sott glow of my roommate's 
smoldering stereo, I made my way to the refrig- 
erator. As I opened the door, a tremor passed 
through the whole of my being. There was notl|"

I found my way to the door througK: tfediij^ 
carded Whole Wheat cartons and long sinci 
drained Molson Ales. The door opened easily 
with a quick, violent twist. I began to sprint but, 
stumbled towards the machines. As I turned tM 
corner, my stomach began to spasm at the rneS 
thought of the delicacies which lay ahead. FritoJ 
Hostess cupcakes. Whole wheat chips. Two of 
them. Four of them. A whole row of theml I 
reached into my bathrobe and brought forth a 
series of bent bottle caps. My pockets were full of 
them. I immediately thought of trashing the ma-

W ithout student workers, this university couldn't function, and conversely, for many students there wouldn't be 
the university without the job. Some work to put themselves through school. It's hard-classes and university life 
combined with a full work schedule that makes for one busy student. Sometimes, the satisfaction and independence that 
come from self-support is priceless. 

Flipping hamburgers or pumping gas provides a little extra spending money which could make the difference between 
a good weekend and a great one, or between Levi jeans and Calvin Klein's. For many, the practical experience of work is 
invaluable to their careers and learning experiences. 

You see the working student everywhere: the dining commons, the library, on grounds crews, cleaning stalls, typing, 
guarding dorms, driving busses, serving food, selling stamps, ushering you to your seat, labelling, bank telling, 
counseling, helping. 

X eggy Sheehan is a personal care attendent for two handicapped students here at the 
University. A nursing student, Peggy finds that the job fits in with what she plans to do in 
terms of career. A little extra help in personal care, someone to help maneuver a cumbersome 
wheelchair or to talk to about problems is sometimes important to someone confined to a 
wheelchair. Peggy Sheehan does all that and more with the exuberance of someone who really 
likes her job. 

"I don't do this job for the money", said Sheehan. "The money actually means very little to 
me. What I do it for is the personal satisfaction I get out of helping someone who needs a little 
extra help and both of the people I work for have become friends." 

Patterson Dormitory in Southwest is equipped to house handicapped students and Brett in 
Central will soon be renovated. Approximately twenty-five students are employed as personal 
care attendents at the university. Most handicapped students receive a monthly allowance of 
state money through the Massachusetts Rehabilitation program or similar state agencies. Part 
of this money is to be spent on the hiring of a personal care attendent like Peggy if the student 
feels he or she needs the extra help someone like Peggy could offer. 

According to Sandy Cohen, Peggy is an irreplaceable helper as well as a friend. For Peggy, her 
rewards are many.

partyer. Pelletier, an Industrial Engineering major and brother at Phi Mu Delta, has worked 

here for two years and has acquired the speed and finesse of a professional bartender. 

"The best part of the job is the people," says Pelletier. "The customers and the other 

employees really make the job."

Pub manager Jerry Jolly starts his new employees out cold with no formal bar training . . . 

the "sink or swim method". 

"My training involved one week's work without pay or tips", said Pelletier. "This, of course. 

was back in the days before the drinking age was raised to twenty. The pace was incredibly fast 

and the pay sacrifice could be as much as $250. But if was really the best way to learn. No one 

can tell you how to tend bar, you have to learn it by doing it." 



VV here is the best seat on campus to sit and watch the university go by? For Debbie 
Higgins, the best seat is behind the Campus Center Assistance Desk where she has been a famihar 
face for a few years. 

On a busy morning, literally thousands of students pass by this familiar desk located on the 
concourse level of the Campus Center directly next to tne Blue Wall. And on a busy morning, it 
isn't unusual for thousands of questions to be asked. 

The Assistance Desk workers know everything there is to know about UMass and it's rare that a 
question cannot be answered. If they don't know the answer, you are usually sent in the direction of 
someone who does. At a school the size of UMass, this desk could be called the "Help me, I'm Lost 

"What time do the busses run?" "When is the pool open for swimming?", "Who do I contact 
about dropping a course?", "What time does the Bluewall open Sunday morning?". Where is, what 
is, who is . . . help!! 

Higgins always stays cool and knows most of the answers. "I love the job because I get to meet so 
many people and I know I'm really helping a lot of people out", Higgins said. "The first few weeks 
of school are when people are the most confused and so many look really bewildered walking 
around. We do our best to help everyone get used to UMass." 

UMass is confusing. Remember the first week here when you were trying to juggle maps, 
schedules, course lists and names? And then again, there are times when second semester seniors 
still get lost or forget their names. Stop by the Assistance Desk, Higgins may just have you on her 
computer printout sheet. 

Vjood evening everyone from Curry Hicks Cage at the University of Massachu- 
setts . . . this is Minuteman Basketball. I'm Bob Levine with Rick Heideman bringing 
you all the excitement of NCAA basketball." 

Over sixty games, 20,000 miles, and seventeen states kept sports broadcasters Rick 
Heideman and Bob Levine busy during their junior and senior years at UMass. Working 
as radio broadcast team for the university station WMUA, Heideman and Levine brought 
all the Minuteman action back to the listening fans who couldn't be with their team on 
the road trips or who couldn't get to the Cage on the evenings of home games. 

"There were times when it was tough to balance school and basketball," Levine said. 
"It wasn't unusual for us to attend a 9:15 class, hop a plane at 11:00, do a game in 
Washington at 7:00 and be back for an 11:15 class the next morning." 

To transmit a visual picture of an exciting game over one thousand miles on a 
telephone line is tough, but Heideman doing play-by-play and Levine doing color, 
brought basketball games alive to fans back in Amherst. 

With basketball fans like UMies, all radios were tuned to WMUA when the team was

"Space Music," according to Eric Berman, bass guitarist with the Amherst rock group, Martian Highway Band, is "music for music." 
Apparently "music for music" is something similar to what we heard from the San Francisco rock and acid bands of the sixties. Martian 
Highway has a sound reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and the Airplane. According to Berman, however, Martian Highway has a sound all its 


Berman is a twenty-year-old sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences. 
A musician for many years, Berman plays the guitar, bongo, mandolin, bass

both bluegrass and jugbands, as well as performed at Earthfoods and local 

"I started playing the bass guitar four years ago when a rock band at my 
high school needed a bass player", Berman said. "I bought my first bass for ten 
dollars at a neighborhood garage sale. It had only two strings. When I started 
playing at the audition, the group had their amps up so high, they didn't 
realize I couldn't play ... I got the job." 

Martian Highway began on the twenty first floor of Kennedy Tower when a 
group of dedicated musicians were concerned about the lack of "Space Music" 
in the Pioneer Valley. Bookings, according to Berman, are hot and the group is 
expected to really catch soon. Fame and fortune, however, have not yet set in. 
Be sure to keep an eye on the "Space Music" section of your favorite record 
store. Martian Highway may soon top the charts.

From The Pioneer Valley 
to The Pioneer Bowl 

While running their winning streak to 
10-0 in the Yankee Conference, the 
UMass Minutemen captured the Beanpot 
for the second straight year, were awarded 
the Lambert Cup and were tagged by the 
local press as New England Champs. And 
finally, they earned a number two national 
ranking in Division I-A.A., falling just one 
touchdown short of a national champion- 
ship in the Pioneer Bowl at Withata Falls, 
Texas. But before the dust had settled in 
the windblown Texas town, Coach Pickett 
was named E.C.A.C. Div. I-A.A. coach of 
the year. 

Led by defensive captain Joe 
McGloughlin and offensive captain Bruce 
Kimball, the hard working Minutemen be- 
gan "pumping iron" back in the dark ages 
of December. Intense spring drills and a 
summer of sacrifice followed. When pre- 
season rolled around, the coaches had a 
recklessly wild defense and a tough disci- 
plined offense ready on September 16, 
1979 for the opener against Villanova. 

Although the Minutemen outplayed the 
Cats and Dennis Dent had rushed for 178 
yards, victory managed to elude them. 
Two late fourth quarter touchdowns and 
an illegal pick play allowed the Wildcats 
to steal a 21-25 decision over the heartbro- 
ken Minutemen. 

Not to be denied a victory, the UMass 
wild bunch led by coach Pickett, a U of 
Maine graduate, came back the following 
week to destroy the Black Bears from 
Maine, 40-6. Cliff Pedrow provided the 
major offensive punch, scoring two touch- 
downs and rushing for 190 yards. 

A tenacious UMass defense, led by an 
iron wall defense-line and an interception 
and fumble recovery by Steve LeMay, 
held Maine to just 44 yards total rushing. 

This excitement however was short 
lived. The Minutemen found themselves 1- 
2 after their third contest against Harvard. 

Things looked glum as Morgan State 
rolled into town. But a stubborn UMass 
defense crushed any attempt by the visi- 
tors to advance the ball. Led by senior 
linemen Dave Bemis, Duncan Gillan, John 
D'Amato, Steve Telander, John Mc- 
Donald and linebackers Joe McGloughlin 
and Steve Mclnnis, the Golden Bears only 
totaled nine yards rushing. 

On the other side of the pigskin, Dennis 
Dent (a 100-yard kickoff return) along 
with Sandro Vitiello (45-yard field goal) 
and Hank Sarault (with two touchdowns) 
had racked up 38 points to put the Minute- 
men at 2-2 on the season. 

UMass then headed east to face un- 
beaten Boston University. The Min- 
utemen pounded the Terriers on the 
rain drenched turf, as lefty quarter- 
back Mike McEvilly threw two 
touchdown passes with Marty Pag- 
lione and Mike Barbias; on the re- 
ceiving ends. Hank Sarault rambled , 
for two more scores and Sandro Vi-t- 
tiello booted another 41 -yard 
field goal to put the contest win 
in reach. On defense, John 
Beerworth intercepted two passes leading 
the mighty UMass defense to another fine 

The stage was set for a clash of the 
conference's unbeaten teams, UMass vs. 

This game had it all, but when the sun 
was setting at Meade Stadium down in 
Kingston town, the scoreboard read 
UMass 19, U.R.I. 17. This victory sent the 
Minutemen back to Alumni Stadium for 
Homecoming in high spirits. 

15,000 alumni, friends, relatives and 
fans packed the UMass stadium, hoping 
UConn would not spoil another Home- 
coming. When the second UMass drive 
was stopped just short of the goaline it 
appeared the Homecoming jinx would rule 
once again. However quarterback Mike 
McEvilly broke that jinx with a 17-yard 
touchdown pass to Hank Sarault and a 
score of his own. Interceptions by Kevin 
Maguire, John Beerworth and Kevin Sulli- 
van along with fumble recoveries by Steve 
Telander, Duncan Gillan and Steve Le- 
May thwarted UConn offense and UMass 
had it's fourth straight win. 

In a tough, hard-hitting battle marred 
by penalties, the Rutgers Scarlet Kinghts 
downed the Minutemen 21-11. Hopes of 
post-season play dwindled as the Minute- 
men spent the next week preparing for the 
best Holy Cross team in a decade. 

Earlier in the season, the Crusaders had 
been talking of bowl games themselves, so 
the Minutemen welcomed them to their 

^ \ 

own version of the Black and Blue Bowl, as 
they bruised and battered a cocky Holy 
Cross team. Dennis Dent, the game's most 
valuable player, ran for 203 yards and two 
touchdowns leading the offense to an im- 
pressive 28 points. A blocked punt which 
Steve Telander fell on in the end zone 
added six more and the Minutemen had a 
33-8 upset proudly notched in the win col- 
umn. A 37-yard touchdown pass to Chuck 
Balbonni and 14 tackles by Bobby Wilson 
highlighted the successful afternoon on 
the field. 

The last Yankee Conference game fea- 
tured the battle for the championship 
against U.N.H. The Minutemen crushed 
the Wildcats 34-7 in a lopsided affair, 
thereby capturing their second Straight 
Yankee Conference Championship. McE- 
villy tossed touchdown passes to Chris 
Kurtz and Kevin O'Connor while Dent 
raced for two more scores. A sky high 
UMass team then awaited the arrival of 
Boston College. 

Six years of humiliation along with 
some personal frustrations had built the 
Minutemen to a incredible emotional 
state. B.C. never had a chance. The offen- 
sive line anchored by Bruce Kimball, Mike 
McGloughlin, Alec Westerland, Rich Bai- 
ly and Carl Nyholm opened gaping holes 
in the B.C. line as the Minutemen rolled 
up 27 points without using the pass as a 
weapon. Dennis Dent tallied 206 yards to 
make him the first runner in UMass histo- 
ry to run for over 1,000 yards. Sandro 


Vitiello tied a school record with a 52-yard 
field goal and John Beerworth set yet an- 
other school record with his eighth inter- 
ception of the year. UMass not only totally 
out-played and out-classed B.C., but shut 
'them out (40 yards total rushing, three 
first downs and zero points). B.C. had 
been humbled and UMass reigned as New 
England Champs. 

Without the services of Dave Bemis (out 
with a broken ankle) and John Beerworth 
(elegibility lost) the Minutemen headed 
into the Div. I-A.A. playoffs, first stop 
Reno, Nevada. They were greeted in the 
barren, chilly, city of sin by the open- 
mouth-insert-foot style of Nevada coach 
Chris Ault, who had guaranteed the peo- 
ple of Nevada that his 11-0 Wolfpack 
would down UMass. By the beginning of 
the fourth quarter, with UMass leading 
44-7, Ault was unavailable for comment. 

Three touchdowns by Cliff Pedrow, a 

96-yard kickoff return by Dennis Dent, a 
McEvilly to O'Connor bomb, three recep- 
tions by Chris Kurtz and three intercep- 
tions by Kevin Sullivan, had quieted the 
Wolfpack mentor. In the words of coach 
Bob Pickett "It was a fantastic day for the 
University and the State of Massachu- 

The sweetest victory of the year 
launched the Minutemen into the Nation- 
al Championship game in the Pioneer 
Bowl at Wichita Falls, Texas. 

In an A. B.C. nationally televised game, 
the Minutemen battled it out with Florida 
A & M. The lead changed six times at the 
hands of a 35 m.p.h. wind in what was 
unanimously labeled the most exciting col- 
lege football game of the year. When it 
was all over, UMass was still fighting back 
as Chris Kurtz dove into the end zone at 
the final bell. Florida A & M had a nation- 
al championship in its grasp, 35-28, but 

UMass had touched on an impossible 

Not to be forgotten was the outstanding 
job done by the specialty team throughout 
the year, led by senior Bob Pinto. 

The Minutemen dominated the Yankee 
Conference All Star team with 17 mem- 
bers and had one ail-American player in 
senior guard Bruce Kimball, who signed 
with the Pittsburg Steelers. Three other 
players also signed with pro-teams: Mike 
McGloughlin, Joe McGloughlin and Den- 
nis Dent. 

The season closed with an awards ban- 
quet. Pro quarterback Gregg Landry 
summed it up best when he said "the 1978 
Minutemen football team brought a spe- 
cial pride to the University and the State 
of Massachusetts, one that will be cher- 
ished forever."

Women Capture 4th In New Englands 

The 1978 women's cross country team, coached by 
former UMass runner Jane Welzcl, was led by seniors 
Deb Farmer, Anne Bradshaw, Sophomores Tina Fran- 
ario, Linda Welzel, Priscilla Wilson, and freshmen Julie 
Burke, Robyn Dally, Judy McCrone, Tricia Moores, and 
Cathy Petrick. All the runners being able to come in 
when necessary was the teams strength. Less than 40 
seconds separated the top five runners in the champion- 
ship meet. The top seven runners from U Mass consisting 
of Francario, Welzel, Burke, Moores, Farmer, Petrick, 
and McCrone earned UMass a 4th place finish in the 
New Englands and a number 7 spot in the East. Next 
year's team should be even more awesome with the re-

UMass Falls Short in the Final Match 
of the MAIAW State Championships 

The final test of the season was the MAIAW State Championships at Worcester Polytechni- 
cal Institute. The Minutewomen appeared to be the team to beat in Division 1 with a 2 
game victory over Bridgewater State College and a split with Boston College, which set 
the stage for the finals: UMass versus B.C . . In what turned out to be a very 
competative and emotional match, UMass came out on the bottom side of a 13-15, 14- 
16 score. The UMass players gave all they had and never let up during the match. 
Despite a second place finish in Division 1, the team had much to be proud of. 
Only one varsity player was lost through graduation and there is a solid nucleus of talent 
returning next season. 1978 represented a total team effort with all members contribut- 
ing equally to the success of the program. Varsity team members included freshwomen 
Sally Anderson and Ellen Braun; sophomores Brenda Simmons, Peggy Barber, and 
Maria Minicucci; juniors Joanne Eames, Donna Sasso, Chris Perrone, Pat 
McGrath, and Joyce Gresl (team MVP and next year's captain) and Senior 
captain Kathy Shinnick. 

Pat McGrath 
1978-79 was a good season for women's athletics at UMass, and the volleyball 
program was no exception. Under first year coaches Mike Rhodes and Paul 
Bauer, the varsity women's volleyball team enjoyed the best season in their 
history with a 20-12-1 record. They employed a 6-2 (six spikers and two 
setters) multiple play offense and utilized the middle hit more effec- 
tively than ever before. The defense also showed a great improve- 
ment with new diving techniques and super hustle from all the 

The spikers started the season in grand fashion by wm- 
ning 10 of their first 12 matches. The two losses came at the 
hands of the two eastern volleyball powers, Springfield College and 
Southern Connecticut State College. In the middle of the season the 
team seesawed between ups and downs by losing 3 of 4 matches 
followed by 5 victories in a row. That set the stage for the University of 
Rhode Island Invitational Tournament. UMass entered the tourney 
with an impressive 17-5 record but proceeded to lose 5 of 6 matches. 
UMass played several powerful teams including the University of 
Maryland and Southern Connecticut. The lone victory, however, was 
against Vermont, a team UMass defeated earlier in the season.

On the first day of school in the fall, the women's gymnastic team starts their 
long intensive year of training to strive to be the best. Their competitive season 
starts just after Thanksgiving and continues through mid April. Inlersession is 
spent drilling and perfecting routines in Boyden Auxiliary Gym. 

The results of this year's season showed 7 wins and two losses for the impressive 
gym squad of 12 dedicated women athletes. One loss was to the National Champi- 
ons Penn State. In Eastern Championships the UMass team place fourth and beat 
University of New Hampshire who had handed the minutcwomen a loss earlier in 
dual meet competition. 

This was Virginia Evan's eighth year as a successful head coach of the womcns 
gymnastic team. She was assisted by Mark Stevenson who hails from the Univer- 
sity of Iowa. His first year of coaching the team was a tremendous asset lo ihe 
team's successfulness. 

A highlight of the season was the Springfield College meet. It was broadcasted 
on public television and brought the highest team score for the season along with 
many good individual scores. 

Amy Riuli, a newly recruited freshman, had an exceptional first year at U Mass. 
She was the only member to qualify for the National Championships. She also 
made the All-East team on floor exercise where she charmed both the audience 
and the judges. Amy has three years of competition ahead of her and we should be 
seeing alot of her in the years to come. 

Karen Hemberger was another excellent All-Around performer for the Min- 
utewomen. Hampered by an injured knee last incurred last spring, Hemberger 
had a slow start to this years season but recover rapidly and was the top all-around 
performer by mid season. Unfortunately she reinjured herself warming up for the 
eastern championships and was held back from championship competition. 

The two senior members of the team, Cheryl Morrier and Jean Anderson, both 
had a good last year of competition but were denied their opportunity to shine on 
senior day when the event was cancelled because of problems on the opposing 
team's side. Cheryl, co-captain, exhibited beautiful dancing ability in both floor 
exercise and beam routines. Jean was a strong uneven bar specialist who contrib- 
uted to the teams effort. 

Another top all-around performer for the Minutewomen comes all the way 
from Miami, Florida. Freshman Karen Ginsburg is an elite gymnast with an 
experience background in the sport showed strength, difficulty and grace in all her 
routines this year. 

Sophomores Karen Clemente and Colleen Thornton both improved gradually 
over the season and peaked just in time for the eastern championships. Clemente 
made finals on the uneven bars while Thornton qualified on the balance beam. 

Co-Captain Laurie Knapp added both enthusiasm and consistent beam perfor- 
mances to the team. Laurie had a fine junior year and is a great asset to the team. 

The most improved gymnast for this years season was Heidi Mildendcr. A 
freshman from Randolph Ma, Heidi showed outstanding potential on all four 

Hard working and determined Debbie Smith, added depth to the team and 
showed improvement in both floor exercise routines and vaulting. 

Two top recruits, Lisa Martin and Chris Paul were injured throughout the 
season. Although Lisa did vault with a hurt wrist and earned some extra points to 
help out the team. Both have fine ability and will hopefully be back in action next 

The gymnasts devoted many hours to practicing each day every week all season 
long and should be commended for the fantastic job they do in upholding the fine 
tradition of a fine gymnastic program here at the University.

Relations Between Players and 
Coach Strained, Leaman Quits 

The season opened with a 14 point victo- 
ry over the Harvard Crimson and ended 
with the resignation of head coach Jack 
Leaman. Such was the season for the 78- 
79 Minutemen. It was a season filled with 
player-coach dissension, erratic play and 
few highlights. 

Preseason articles were filled with hope 
for the cagers, what with star Mark Hay- 
more (eighth in the nation in shooting the 
previous year) returning along with a solid 
veteran cast including seniors Len Kohl- 
haas. Brad Johnson, Eric Williams and 
junior guard Billy Morrison. But before 
the season had a chance to begin, relations 
between the players and Coach Leaman 
had become strained. Guard Juan Hol- 
comb walked off the team and forward 
George Dennerlein almost came to phys- 
ical grips with the coach. It was this type 
of dissension that hounded the team 
throughout the year, effecting their play. 

The season opening win over Harvard 
may have looked like a good sign of things 
to come but such vvas not the case. For its 
second game of the year, UMass traveled 

to Pitt to meet the Panthers. The meeting 
was not a joyous one as the Panthers ran 
away from the Minutemen and strolled 
home with a 70-54 triumph. 

This defeat was followed by a loss to 
Boston University and their coach former 
UMass player Rick Pitino. The loss oc- 
curred at the cage which only made it 

Before intersession came around, the 
Minutemen put on a comeback spurt, win- 
ning back games against Northeastern and 
Vermont, the latter triumph coming on 
two Eric Williams foul shot with one sec- 
ond remaining. Notable about the two vic- 
tories was that they both came on the road. 

Most students enjoy intersession; the 
students that comprised the hoop team did 
not however. The vacation period began 
with a tough home arena loss to the 
UConn Huskies. This was followed by a 
loss to Holy Cross, a double setback at the 
Gator Bowl tournament in Jacksonville, 
Florida, a horrendous effort against West 
Virginia and a loss to Villanova. 

For most, a trip to Florida during the 
winter is a treat, but not for the Minute- 
men who suffered huge defeats at the Ga- 
tor Bowl tourney, falling to Florida Uni- 
versity, 89-65, and Pitt, 87-68. The only 
shining light in the tourney was the play 
of Brad Johnson, unjustly left off of the 
tournament all-star team. 

To break up the monotony of losing, 
the Minutemen pulled out a tight 66-62 
victory over the Friars at Providence. 
But the sweet smell of success did not 
linger as the Colonials of George Wash- 
ington University dumped the Minute- 
men 81-69. 

Undaunted by this defeat the Min- 
utemen came back to defeat New 
Hampshire 61-57, after blowing a 
healthy lead in the game. 

As the spring semester began, the 
losses continued. First it was a loss to 
Rutgers followed by a single point loss 
to Duquesne. Then a loss to Sly Wil- 
liams and URI and a loss to UConn. 
The losing just never seem to end. 

Next came the most pathetic show- 
ing of the year as the Black Bears of 
Maine University embarassed the Min- 
utemen at the Cage 85-67. To make 
matters as bad as they could get, the 
team lost to Division II rival Bentley 
College by a whopping twenty points, 
92-72, before a huge crowd. This 

was followed by a 
losing trip to 
and Rutgers 

there was only 
one game left, 
a home game 
against Penn 
State — Senior 
Night. But the 
festivities of sen- 
ior night were 
overshadowed by 
the fact that head 
coach Jack Lea- 
man had an- 
nounced his resignation 
after thirteen years at the helm, effective 
at season's end. 

It had not been an easy year for the 
coach. His players had lost respect for him 
and each daily practise and official game 
were wearing the seemingly unshatterable 
coach to a frazzle. The expected loss by 
the Minutemen on Senior Night, losing 
having become a standard thing, meant 
nothing — an athletic legend was gone. 

As is custom in the Eastern Eight, the 
league UMass plays in, no matter how 
poor a regular season a team may have, it 
is still eligible for the league playoffs. So 
UMass was given a second chance to live, 
a chance for salvaging a lost season. 

The Villanova Field House, known to 
their fans as the "Cathouse" was the scene 
for the playoff battle between UMass and 
the Wildcats of Villanova. 

It appeared as though a new UMass 
team had emerged, one with fire, spirit and 
determination. The Minutemen battled 
the Wildcats from start to finish and after 
a regulation forty minute game, the score 
was knotted at 67. For the night, it seemed 
that the tension between coach and play- 
ers, and the lifeless efforts that appeared 
often during the regular season had never 

But the overtime period brought reality 
back into the picture as the Wildcats 
pulled out a 78-73 victory over the valiant 

And so the season ended; a season that 
will be hard to forget for both statistical 
and emotional reasons.

#1 in New England 

The Minutewomen of UMass posted 
their best season record at 18-7 and staked 
their claim as one of the best teams in New 

It was not a team of stars but a team 
that incorporated a total team orientation 
of offense and defense to stymie the oppo- 
sition. Once again the team was led by the 
scoring and play of Sue Peters who made 
UMass history in January against St. 
John's by becoming the first UMass wom- 
an to score 1000 career points. The team's 
hidden strength though was in the play of 
junior center Julie Ready. Ready, who was 
a transfer student the year before, joined 
the team in January and was awarded the 
Collegian Player of the Year. Ready 
scored at an impressive 16-3 clip and led 
the team in rebounding. 

The regular season was frosted by a vic- 
tory against the number one team in New 
England, Southern Conn State College, 
who had frustrated the Minutewomen for 
three long years. For the first time in the 
program's history UMass was awarded the 
top spot in the New England polls. 

It was a season of frustration and exper- 
ience. The team was maligned and ignored 
by a press that glamorized local favorites 
such as Springfield College and Boston 
University. For example, after the Min- 
utewomen thrashed BU during a regular 
season game, the UMass victory was ex- 
plained as a fluke because the star of BU, 
Debra Miller was unable to play. Later the 
critics were silenced by the play of the 
Minutewomen who whipped BU in the 
state tourney and came back to beat the 
same team one week later in the Eastern 
Regional tourney. 

The 1979 Minutewomen fielded the 
strongest front line in their history. Joining 
Julie Ready up front was Maura Supinski 
whose defense shut down the opposition's 
power forward, and freshwoman Tricia 
Corcoran who displayed a mature playing 
attitude seldom seen in a first year player. 
Mary Halleran was the "other guard" 
with Sue Peters. Although Halleran was 
often in the shadow opf the flasher Peters, 
Halleran gave the backcourt another di- 
mension in her outstanding defensive play. 
Halleran's speed cursed the opposition 
forcing turnovers and bad passes. 

The bench of the Minutewomen was 
i'ery deep, giving yet another dimension to 
the team. Cathy Harrington and transfer 
player Ginger Legare spelled the front- 
court starters and proved to th6 opposition 
that UMass was represented by quality 
players. Harrington hustled on both 
ends of the court and often kept 
the ball alive for the Minutewo- 
men with outstanding offensive re- 
bounding. Ginger Legare joined 
the team in January and was not 
expected to adjust to the team 
as quickly as she did, 
but Leagre's steady play 
helped the Minutewomen in 
crucial situations where fouls on Ready or 
Supinski made the goings tough. 

Captain Grace Martinello, the only sen- 
ior on the team, provided great leadership 
according to coach Mary Anne Ozdarski. 

In the early season Ozdarski alternated 
the starting five, who played a man-to- 
man defense with a second five, nick- 
named "the bomb squad." 

Later on in the season the bomb squad 
was disbanded because Ozdarski felt that 
the players had gained the confidence in 
themselves that made the platooning of 
players unnecessary. After a tough in- 
tersession the Minutewomen dropped four 
straight games. The Minutewomen went 
on a tear during the "second" half of their 
season. The team not only beat respectable 
teams such as Springfield College, UConn 
and BU but destroyed each team with a 
diversity of play that left the opponents 
shaking their heads. Many teams tryed to 
deny Sue Peters the ball and played a sag- 
ging defense to stop Julie Ready. Howev- 
er, they left themselves open to the outside 
jumpers of Tricia Corcoran and Jen Park- 
er or the soft inside jumpers of Cathy Har- 

The freshwomen on the team provided 



spark. Sherry 
Collins and Fran 
Troy hustled for ev- 
ery loose ball and re- 
bound, playing tough 
defense and a smart of- 

One example of this 
team's gutsy play was a 
match against the UConn Hus- 
kies at the Huskies homecourt. Although 
the Minutewomen were leading at the half 
44-40, the Huskies played them tough, 
cutting Julie Ready out of the offense and 
keeping her away from the offensive 
boards with a potent sagging defense. The 
Minutewomen came back in the second 
half on fire, putting a lid over the Huskies 
basket with a tough defense and press that 
forced UConn into errors. Coach Ozdarski 
commented, "UConn played so well the 
first half that it made us play harder the 
second half." UMass concentrated and 
collared the Huskies, outrebounding the 
tough UConn Team 61-22 and blowing 
them out 102-78. 

The Minutewomen finished the regular 
season on fire and proceeded to take the 
state championship for the third time. For 
the first time in the history of the program, 
the Minutewomen had a chance to enter 
into the national tourney, but it was not to 
be. In the semi-finals the Minutewomen 
again faced rivals Southern Conneticut 
State College. Southern Conn had been 
there before being the only team in the 
nation to make the national tourney every 
year of its existence. The inexperience of 
the Minutewomen showed and the battle- 
tested Owls of Southern Conn slipped past 
the Minutewomen 65-64 in the final 30 
seconds of play.

The U.Mass 1978-79 hockey team completed its 
last collegiate season 1-18-1. The season's record did 
not show the team's true ability. Senior co-captains 
Joe Milan and John Peters along with Seniors Nick 
Carney and Ron Valicenti highlighted this season's 
ice time. Junior Ken Richard was the top scorer with 
10 goals and 11 assists and Senior Joe Milan was 
second with a total of eighteen points. Junior Jamie 
Benelli and freshman standout Mark Giordani were 
tied for third with 16 points apiece. Carney was 
fourth highest scorer with 5 goals and 8 assists. 

This season's oppositions were tough, but the sea- 
son was highlighted with the U.Mass victory of tough 
Boston State. The team was plagued with injuries 
throughout the season. Injuries to co-captains Joe 
Milan and John Peters crippled the team both offen- 
sively and defensively. U.Mass goalies Casy Scavone, 
freshman Jeff Moore, and Mike Gruberski shared 
the net minding chores. 

The dedication of the 78-79 team and coach Jack 
Caniff and assistant, P.J. Flaherty was extensive. The 
team, not having its own rink, was forced to practice 
whenever and wherever the was free ice, whether it 
be in Amherst, Springfield or at Williston Academy. 
"Home" games were played at Amherst College and 
the players had to provide their own transportation. 
This sort of sacrifice can only be admired of the 
U.Mass team. We are proud to have had such dedi- 
cated and talented players for U.Mass in its last 
season. Debbie Roden

New England's- 16th out of 38 



The 1978-79 season for womans swimming and diving had many high and low 
points. For the first time in UMASS history, the women beat powerhouse Springfield 
College and unexpectedly defeated a strong team from Boston College. Throughout 
the season many best time performances were achieved by all of the swimmers. 

There were a number of swimmers, who through personal improvement arose to 
point scoring level. Co-captain Deb Shwartz was the most valuable swimmer for the 
second year in a row, compiling the highest point total. Senior Co-captain Rachel 
Mack contributed greatly to team spirit and morale while also scoring many points. 
Senior Lynn Lutzalso contributed greatly to the team. Caroline Benjamin, Gail 
Holland, and Kathie Countie were outstanding point scorers. Marianne Primivera 
improved all of her best times, and sophomore Cindy Piela cut one second off her 
50yd. butterfly time. Coached by Bruce Parsons, Suzy Strobel and Loring Miles did a 
nice job diving for UMASS. Transfer students Nancee Shifflet and Michelle Wong 
contributed immensely during the second half of the season. Transfer student Kathie 
Driscoll set a new New England diving record in the one meter diving event. 

Head swimming coach John Nunnelly hopes that through recruiting and internal 
development, the team will be able to improve and compete with the more developed 
programs in New England.

5th Place In New England 

The Umass Water Polo Club ended a tough season with a 9-6 win over Dartmouth and a 
5th place showing in New Englands. 

This club a couple of years ago attempting to gain varsity status in an attempt to stay with 
other top-rate New England teams was turned down by the Athletic Dept. With this setback 
the former N.E. Champions were forced to compete, somewhat shorthanded against Divi- 
sion I powerhouses of Brown Univ. and MIT who make yearly trips to California to play in 
national caliber tournaments. 

Led by seniors Joel Meltz, George Collias and Bill Tharion, UMass posted a respectable 
10-11 record. Meltz, Collias, and sophomore Chris Lomas provided much of the firepower 
for the offensive attack, hitting the net a total of 92 times between them. 

"Big" Dave Young and goalie Bill Tharion shored up the defense to turn away offensive 
intruders, with Tharion getting recognition as one of the better goalies in New England with 
nominations for All-New England in the Annual Coaches Poll in the fall. 

UMass Water Polo future looks bright with the "rookie tandem" of Mike Rowbotham 
and Ed Lizotte along with 2nd year men Chris Lomas and Jay DeCoste all playing AAU 
Polo this spring. 

Water Polo is alive and well at UMass and is on its way up to compete again with the 

varsity powerhouses.

The UMass men's crew, under head coach Chick Leonard and 
Frosh coach Dave Kumlin enjoyed a very successful season overall. 

The Varsity squad boated three crews, the Varsity Eight, a 
Junior Varsity eight and a Varsity four. The JV's were impressive 
as they won all of their early races easily by a wide margin. They 
faltered a bit as they dropped two close ones, both to the U.S. Coast 
Guard Academy, UMass' arch rival, neither one by more than four 
seconds. The J'V's came back, however, to win the Gold medals at 
the Dad Vail Regatta, the national championships of collegiate 
rowing, decisively defeating the Guard. 

The Varsity looked strong in the early part of the season posting 
victories over Marist College, Temple and Drexel Universities. The 
first boat faltered near the end, however, finishing a disappointing 
fifth out of twelve at the New England Invitationals, and just barely 
being edged out of a qualifying spot at the Vail. This year's Varsity 
eight included co-captains Jim Clair and Gary Murtagh, Seniors 
Tom Lovely, Steve Westra, Dave Caruso and Juniors Bob Hanson, 
Karl Lieblich and Pat Bronder. The Varsity four included Seniors 
Scott Finch and Sepp Bergsnieder. 

The Frosh under Coach Kumlin were especially impressive as 
they were undefeated in the regular season, posting victories in both 
the Freshman eight and four at the New England's. Unfortunately, 
both crews succumbed to the same ailment as the Varsity as they 
were barely edged out of qualifying for the finals at the Vail.

The UMass men's lacrosse team en- 
joyed a great season in 1979, finishing the 
regular season ranking sixth in the nation 
and participating in the NCAA tourna- 
ment for the third time in the last four 
years. The team also won its fourth con- 
secutive New England championship. 

There were also several momentous in- 
dividual achievements, highlighted by vet- 
eran coach Dick Garber's 200th career 
coaching victory. Garber, in his 25th sea- 
son as UMass lacrosse coach, got the big 
win when the Gorillas beat Harvard 16-13, 
May 8. On the condition of the milestone 
victory a typically modest Garber said, 
"Coaches don't win games, players do."

among the nation's leading scorers and 
was named a Division 1 First All-America, 
the only New Englander accorded the 
honor. Sweet's 87 points in '79 tied the 
UMass single-season record and his two- 
year total of 172 points made him the sec- 
ond leading all-time UMass scorer. Sweet 
was also selected, along with teammates 
Norm Smith and Roger Coe, to play in the 
prestigious North-South game, an annual 
event which features the best seniors in the 

Smith and sophomore Ed Murray, both 
midfielders, received All-America honor- 
able mention. 

The Minutemen rode a strong second 
half performance into the tourney, knock- 
ing off two highly-ranked teams in the last 
week of the season. At mid-season the 
team was only 4-4 and chances were nil 
that it would be one of the eight chosen for 
the tournament. Things started to change 
April 28 when the Gorillas defeated the 
UNH team coached by Dick Garber's son 
Ted, 24-13. 

After that, the then-unranked Minute- 
men beat sixth in the nation Army May 5 
at West Point, as senior goaltender Don 
"Duck" Goldstein played perhaps his best 
game of the season. Later in the year, 
Garber pointed to the Army win as pivot- 
al. "That game made us believers," he 

Next came Garber's 200th win over pe- 
rennial New England rival Harvard, and 

on May 11 the Gorillas upset seventh- 
ranked Syracuse 15-12. Two days later the 
team was notified that it had been selected 
for the NCAA tournament and would play 
third-ranked Navy. UMass lost the game 
played at Annapolis, 16-14 and ended the 
season with a deceptive 8-5 record. 

Senior members of the team included: 
Sweet, Smith, Coe (a defenseman who 
played very well in '79) Goldstein, irre- 
pressible Harry Conforti, Steve Dahl, 
Toby Rice, Peter Klement, Tom Keenan, 
Eric Banhazl and Ray McKinney.

Cabin Fever 

1978-79 was a big year for the UMass Outing Club. In January, after nine months of construction, 
members of the club completed a 16x40 ft. cabin in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The 
cabin is fully winterized, heated by a wood-burning stove, and has sleeping space for 20 people in its 
upper loft. 

Over 150 people donated at least one weekend of work on the project, which was conceived in the 
spring of 1976 and funded through contributions from alumni and students working at beer conces- 
sions at the spring concerts of 1977 and 1978. 

The new cabin provides easy access to many activities for anyone who wants to use it. It is situated 
on a wooded hillside with hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails leading from the back 
door, and downhill ski areas such as Cannon and Mitterskill just minutes away. Rock climbing is 
available at nearby Cannon, Eagle Cliffs and Crawford Notch, and White water canoeing opportunities 
include the Ammonooscu, Gale and Saco Rivers.

The year 1978-79 was marked by a trans- Atlantic balloon crossing to Paris, four track records se 
by Henry Rono of Kenya, and at UMass, Stuart Calle and the Massachusetts Racquets Club 
created the world's largest scrabble board. Over a weekend in September, scrabble players from each 
of the five colleges in the area came to play on the colossal 2500 square foot foam rubber board. 
Representatives from the national media were also on hand to record the event in Curry Hicks Cage. 
By selling perimeter board space to local merchants for advertising, the club was able to make 

several hundred dollars for equipment, coaching, and court repair. 

Part of the proceeds from the game also went to the American 

Cancer Society. 

Twice a year, an unusual treat awaits audiences at NOPE pool. 
The lights are dimmed and the NAIADS put on a musical show of

the only known coop of its kind in the coun-

roonn in the basement of the Campus Center 
and moved this year to the Student Union 

The main objective of the new coop is to 
offer quality merchandise at reasonable 
prices. This year, the coop was extremely 
successful in selling racquetball equipment, 
sweat suits, sneakers and gymwear. Other 
popular items included basketballs, soccer 
balls, tennis balls, baseball bats, table tennis 
equipment, dartboards and hockey sticks. 

Although many of the volunteers who run 
the coop are sport management majors, oth- 
ers include accounting, forestry, and art.

Doing it With Interest 

Few other student-run organizations on campus matcln the 
accomplishments of the UMass Student Federal Credit 
Union. Since it was chartered by the federal government in 
March, 1975, the credit union has grown to become the largest 
and most successful student credit union in the nation. 

In 1978-79, the credit union had 3500 members, who shared 
in half a million dollars in assets. Check-cashing, check-writing, 
savings accounts and loans at reasonable prices were among 
the benefits available to all members. For the hundreds of 
students with University jobs, an automatic service was avail- 
able to transfer student payrolls into member accounts, either in 
part or as a whole. 

In addition, the credit union made services such 
as food stamp distribution, money orders and 
traveler's checks available to the public. 

All this was done by a completely volunteer 
staff of ninety or so members.

The Student Auto Workshop was a busy 
place this year. Over 50 people a week made use 
of the workshop, located in the Campus Center 

Those who used the workshop found it an eco- 
nomical place to beat the expensive costs of com- 
mercial service stations. Rates at the shop are 
less than half of what what most self-help stations 

By providing all kinds of tools and a staff of 
four-five qualified mechanics, the workshop also 
encourages people to learn how to work on their 
own cars. 

The Student Auto Workshop isn't just for cars, 
either. Also seen there this year were bikes, 
trucks, and even lawnmowers.

People's Market is a student-run co-op 
known for its good food and low prices. The food 
sold at the market is fresh, whole, and natural, 
and bought, in most cases, from small local ven- 
dors or area co-ops. 

There are over sixty bins in the store, filled with 
everything from garbanzo beans to raisins. In 
addition, the market carries dairy products, fresh 
fruits and vegetables, canned goods, lunch 
items, munch foods, and non-food items. 

And of course, the list would not be complete 
without mentioning that beloved circular treat — 
the bagel. Over 800 of these are delivered fresh 
daily and sold.

during World War II, and the budgetary pres-

grown from a regionally based program to a 
nationally competitive team. This year the De-

over 400 debates with 142 colleges and uni-

Debate Union also sponsors an active audi-

classes on campus as well as high schools and 
civic clubs all over New England. This year the 
audience program presented 63 debates on 
such topics as Nazi protests, pornography vs. 
censorship, and press freedoms. Among the 
highlights of the audience program was the

■I You've gotta pay your dues, if you wa 
nbeknownst to the rest of campus, there are method switched to "camera ready," a process 

^Unbeknownst to the rest of campus, there are 
those of us who spend most of our waking — and 
sometimes sleeping — hours in the Bottom of the 
Campus Center putting together New England's 
largest college daily newspaper. 

An interestingly insane mix of fun, stress, laugh- 
ter, pressure, parties, frustrations and mercurial 
cumulative averages, the COLLEGIAN reports 
events and examines issues — and not always 

While informing its constituency of campus, lo- 
cal, national and international noteworthy hap- 
penings, it provides those students interested in 
seeking careers in any aspect of newspaper pro- 
duction- business, reporting, graphic arts and 
photography — with valuable training. 

Many changes are wrought by the coming of 
new students, new ideas and technological ad- 
vances. This year, the Collegian's production 

method switched to "camera ready," a process 
which allows for the completion of the newspaper, 
except for the printing, to be done in the Campus 
Center offices. Taking the successfulness of this 
step into consideration, who knows what changes 
can be effected by future Collegian staffers, as 
more students stop by for a semester, maybe 
even a year or two; and our basic operational 
knowledge expands to incorporate more progres- 
sive methods. 

Few people realize that some 200 students 
contribute in some fashion to the Collegian's daily 
production. That's probably because the newspa- 
per seems to miraculously appear daily in various 
campus locations. More often than not, the only 
time anyone really "notices" the Collegian is 
when Doonesbury or the crossword puzzle has 
been omitted due to space limitations, or some 
group feels it has been dealt with inaccurately.

er core group of us who can be considered Colle-i 
gian junkies. We can be found in the windowless 1^ 
offices practically any hour of the day. But someTg' 
times, I think that if we all got up and left, thM 
newspaper, "our newspaper," would somehov\J 
miraculously appear in its various locations. % 
We've often been asked how we manage to | 
spend nearly three-quarters of our college careersi5 
down in that office and come away with average! 
to high cums and decent jobs. I myself and noli 
too sure, but a combina;tidn of loyalty and dedica-j:| 
tion has navigated me through. It's a special kindl; 
of love that makes me feel that although the Colle- 1 
gian is the student newspaper of UMass, it's! 
"my" newspaper. And in a crazy way, it alwaysf 
will be. |l

Nummo News is a weekly newspaper pub- 
lished by black students at UMass which has 
been in existance for eight years. The paper is 
the only black newspaper in the five-college 

The main focus of Nummo News is to con- 
centrate on black and Third World news that 
has traditionally been ignored or granted back 
page status by non-Third World media. It at- 
tempts to educate the entire community on is- 
sues that are of concern to Third World people 
on campus. Nummo is a forum where Third 
World students debate issues of importance 
and constructively criticize those members of 
campus that consistantly oppose the progres- 
sive efforts of Third World people. 

This year, Nummo provided the community 
with a Third World viewpoint on numerous is- 
sues such as the death of Seta Rampersad, the 
high unemployment of Third World people in 
this country, and the crucial questions sur- 
rounding the events in Southern Africa. These 
issues had received less than adequate cover- 
age in the valley media. 

Nummo News also provides a training ground 
for students interested in the many facets of 
newspaper production. There is on-the-job 
training in type-setting, photography, writing, 
graphics, newspaper layout, and business man- 

Individual creativity is often Inard to 
find in a University of over twenty tfiou- 
sand students. Spectrum magazine 
offers one answer, however. It provides 
an outlet for literary and artistic ability, 
while providing the University with a 
high quality literary-fine arts magazine 
at the same time. 

Twelve years ago, Spectrum started 
as a general interest magazine de- 
signed for written and visual communi- 
cation of almost any subject. It was 
eventually refined to the literary-fine 
arts format it assumes today. 

In its attempt to produce a high 
quality magazine. Spectrum has won 
two major awards over the past few 
years. In 1976, it was recognized for 
graphic excellence, and in 1978, it was 
given the distinction of winning a na- 
tional award for four color separations. 

Drum Magazine is an expression of the Black experience 
at the University of Massachusetts. It is diverse in its coverage 
and displays a variety of talented artist's works. Its works include 
poetry, photography, short stories, and selected pieces exhibit- 
ing visual techniques. The magazine's scope ranges from issues 
of repression in South Africa and the struggles of political prison- 
ers in the U.S.A. (United States of America/Union of South 
Africa) to photographic material from the Nigerian Festac Cele- 
bration and the University's Third World community. 

Drum represents a portfolio of the many inner emotions — the 
stresses and the strains, the pleasures and the ecstacies — each 
playing an integral part in the composition of becoming con- 
scious of one's identity. The staff has consistently been about 
"getting over". 

Throughout Drum's short existance of ten years, it has only hit 
upon a pinnacle of knowledge and great fortune of which we are 
all a part.

You insisted I get degrees 
That would set me free 

And discard my native dress 
But whiat is worse 

You put lye on my hair 
And told me what to wear: 

A contented smile 
And for a while 

I thought I was cool 

Now I know I'M such a fool 

For you quickly pointed to

Ever wonder who or what is 
responsible for those TV shows 
which attract crowds as they 
make their way through the 
Campus Center or Student 
Union Building? 

The answer is the Union 
Video Center, located on 
the second floor of the Student 
Union Building. 

The Union Video Center, also re- 
ferred to as the Student Video Pro- 
ject, is a non-profit professionally 
and student staffed production 
group and media center which 
maintains a video training, produc- 
tion and programming facility at 
UMass. An advocate of participa- 
tory TV, UVC makes available and 
encourages the use of video 
equipment in order that students 
and the surrounding community 
might have an opportunity to ex- 
press their ideas, values, and life- 

UVC sponsors two broad cate- 
gories of production projects - 
general access and UVC sanc- 
tioned productions. Criterion for 
both include that the users be cer- 
tified before using the equipment. 
General access are the projects 
that may have no particular end in 
mind and are carried out by mem- 
bers of the general community. 
Sanctioned projects are more in- 
volved and require the approval of 
a committee made up of student 

For those interested in obtaining 
use and skill in video taping, the 
center schedules workshops 
which lead to certification. 

UVC also has a program li- 
brary for general access to the 
community. Programming 
ranges from video art to satire, 
dance and social documentary 
and has been produced both lo- 
cally and nationally. 

UVC has grown considerably 
in the past few years, and many 
new concepts have been put 
into motion. It is now planning to 
hold advanced production work- 
shops to assist those users who 
want to further a real interest in 
video. These sessions will in- 
clude not only working with the 
equipment towards a viable end, 
but also a critiquing session 
where hopefully users will help 
one another gain a more incite- 
ful eye as to their projects.

Life is Just a Game 

The players and partiers came 
early and full of spirit, bringing 
with them a reservoir of cosmic 
energy. And by Solar Noon of 
April 28, the Hatch was filled with 
over six hundred eager rollers in 
the 4th Annual Cosmic Winn- 
pout Global Tournament and In- 
verse Film Festival. 

The incentive was strong — a 
grand prize of 250 two dollar bills. 
There was also a $500 stereo 
system door prize. But the 
thought of prizes faded into the 
background of music and merri- 
ment as the players sat down to 

roll their cosmic cubes. The real 
objective of just about everyone 
there, was to win that coveted 
title - Cosmic Wimpout Global 

For those who haven't played, 
Cosmic Wimpout is a dice game 
where you race other players to 
500 points. You can roll as long 
as you want, but if you roll and 
don't score, you "wimp out" and 
lose your points for that turn. 
While the game is played all over 
the country, Amherst is its "spiri- 
tual home" and the site of its an- 
nual World Tournament. This 
year's tournament was the big- 
gest and best in wimpout history. 

For those who wimp out, the 
party was hardly over. In the car- 
nival-like atmosphere which last- 
ed well into the morning, there 
were mimes, costumes, and cir- 
cus wagons. There was dancing 
to four bands which entertained 
throughout the tournament. And 
of course, the wimpout clowns 
were there to add their zaniness 
to the festivities. 

One of the high points in the 

afternoon was the exciting cham- 
pionship match between John 
Kirkman fromMackimmie House, 
and Norma DeMattos, a Mt. Ho- 
lyoke sophomore. The final 
round: two out of three games to 
500, winner take all. 

John won the first game hand- 
ily, and was on his way to taking 
the second when Norma came up 
with a surprise roll of 155 while 
John was rooted at 490. In the 
thrilling finale, the game went 
down to the wire. John, who 
passed Norma in his "last lick" 
roll while they were both over 
500, decided to be just a bit too 
greedy. Wimp Out!! 

But, no one in the tournament 
was really a loser. For the ones 
who rolled Freight Trains and the 
ones who just wimped out, the 
tournament was definitely a ce- 
lestial experience. It brought with 
it the wimpout philosophy - that 
there are no roles to life. And it 
brought with it the Wimpout play- 
ers, for whom life is just a game.

There is a group on campus, 
consisting of Five-College stu- 
dents and local residents, which 
exists for the sole purpose of 
playing gannes. 

The Strategy Games Club 
doesn't play your ordinary run- 
of-the-mill games, however. The 
club deals with a great variety of 
somewhat obscure games, most 
of which are based on past and 
future conflicts. Some, however, 
are based on fantasy and sci- 
ence fiction books like Starship 
Troopers or Lord of The Rings. 

Other types of games include 
miniatures and roie-playing 
games. Miniatures are played 
with small lead figures (tanks, 
dragons, ships, spacecrafts, 
etc.) over a large area. Role- 
playing games are played with 
pencil, paper, and a lot of imagi- 

The Strategy Games Club has

Voice of tiie People 

The Undergraduate Stu- 
dent Senate has continually 
worked towards a goal of stu- 
dents having more control over 
decisions that effect the quality 
of the academic programs, 
housing, food, and general stu- 
dent services at UMass. Stu- 
dents working together in gover- 
nance bodies, organizations, 
clubs, businesses and coops 
necessarily entails a view of the 
University that calls for active in- 
volvement in the formulation of 
the policies that affect the edu- 
cation and self-determination 
that students requires. 

The Undergraduate Senate is 
responsible for dispersing over 
$1.4 million in Student Activities 
taxes (SATF) collected each 
year. A look at the budget allo- 
cations of the SATF shows that 
the Student Senate has made a 
committment to improving the 
quality of life for students at 
UMass. The list of funded stu- 
dents organizations is diverse in 
nature, but all provide practical 
educacational experience while 
also providing activities and ser- 
vices by students for students. 

There are over 400 student 

organizations recognized by the 
Undergraduate Student Senate 
which enrich the entire Universi- 
ty by providing concerts, mov- 
ies, conferences, lectures, and 
other special events and ser- 
vices. Over 5,000 students are 
involved in some aspect of stu- 
dent government and student 
organizations. In the Student 
Senate, there 130 students 
elected from their respective 

This year, the Senate was the 
catalyst organization on numer- 
ous issue campaigns such as 
opposing increases in tuition, 
budget cuts, the raising of the 
drinking age, revision of aca- 
demic requirements, the cam- 
paign to combat racism, the 
campaign against violence 
against women, rent control, im- 
plementing a student lease, sta- 
bility of student-run coops and 
businesses and general growth 
of student services. 

The Senate also acted as the 
host organization for the United 
States Student Association con- 
vention which attracted 150 stu- 
dent leaders from the U.S. as 
well as foreign countries.

Consumer Survival 

Nestled between the vendor specializing in 
feather earrings and a club raffle, you might find a 
table in the Campus Center for the Massachusetts 
Public Interest Research Group. While having a 
table in the Campus Center helps make people 
aware of Mass PIRG's activities, the group's ma- 
jor efforts take place in the regional office, the 
library, and on Beacon Hill. This year, a growing 
number of students from UMass became involved 
in the many activities that took place throughout 
the state. 

Since a chapter was founded at UMass in 1972, 
MassPIRG has grown into a statewide organiza- 
tion consisting of sixteen schools. The group's 
main goal has been to effect social change. 
Whereas the sixties made students aware of criti- 
cal issues that effected their lives, MassPIRG now 
concentrates on teaching the skills necessary to 
actually influence those conditions. Such public 
interest skills include researching, investigating, 
lobbying, mobilizing citizens, and organizing stu- 

dent efforts. To accomplish the group's goals, 
students employ these skills in either administra- 
tive or issue-orientative programs. ^^ 

During the spring of 1978, students workin™' 
with MassPIRG established a consumer action 
center on campus. This center solves complaints 
of consumer ripoff and fraud, and is staffed by 
fully trained student volunteers. To supplement 
the center's activities, MassPIRG's staff attorney 
teaches a course, "Consumer Survival". 

This year, the bottle bill was one of the majoF 
efforts for MassPIRG. Other issues included publi- 
cizing the dangers of nuclear power, promoting 
solar energy, investigating the hazards of asbes- 
tos, studying health and nutrition, and fighting the 
drinking age hike. 

Though the issues change according to time, 
Mass PIRG students have created a base for fu- 
ture students to acquire the means for effectiv e -. 
citizen action. HI

The Commonwealth 
Stage Company 

The Commonwealth Stage Company closed a pro- 
duction of Peter Shaffer's "Equus" at the Fine Arts 
Center on Saturday, November 18. 

"Equus" is the story of a 17 year old boy, Allan 
Strang and his psychiatrist Martin Dysart. Strang (Den- 
nis Boutsikaris) a frightened, confused figure, initially 
speaks in advertising jingles to avoid communication. 
Dysart (John O'Creagh) is a sensitive, considerate pro- 
fessional who, whilst attempting to unravel the motives 
which led Strang to blind six horses in a stable, begins 
to seriously question both his own ethics and definitions 
of normality. Dysart eventually gains Strang's trust and 
subsequently encourages the boy to recreate the var- 
ious significant events in his life which culminated in the 
frenzied, violent act. 

The Commonwealth Stage Company production did 
justice to what is a complex and difficult play to perform 
and choreograph. Jeffrey Fialas' staging was stark but 
effective. For the duration of the play, the set consisted 
of a stylized backdrop (representing the stable wall) 
and a series of ascending platforms. Robert Shake- 
speare's lighting was simple and restrained throughout. 
Rearranged by the actors themselves, several benches 
were the only visible representation of scene change, 
forcing both cast and audience to rely on their own 
imaginations and interpretive abilities, rather than 
elaborate stage props. Peter Lobdell choreographed 
both the Broadway and UMass production of "Equus," 
and created the awesome horses which stomped and 
tossed their way through the two-act play. 

Lois Battle gave a graphically emotional protrayal of 
Strang's religiously deluded mother. Kurt Seattle blus- 
tered his way through a perceptive representation of her 
staunchy socialist husband. In the final flashback scene 
culminating in the blinding incident, Wendy Hartstein, a 
UMass theater major, gave an impassioned perfor- 
mance as the stable girl, Jill. 

After leading Strang through a hypnotically induced 
reenactment of the horse-blinding trauma, Dysart real- 
izes the central dilemma of "Equus." As the self-pro- 
claimed "high priest of normality," he is faced with a 
paradoxical situation of having to administer a cure 
which he no longer believes in, for a condition he has 
come to envy. In "sacrificing" Allan Strang and his 
horse-god to the average, the indispensible, murderous 
God of Hell," Dysart concludes that "there is now in my 
mouth this sharp chain — and it never comes out."

The play, "IN THE ROCK GARDEN", written and directed 

by Roberta Uno was performed as part of the Asian History 

Conference, April 27-29, 1979. "Rock Garden," as in the 

playwright words, "is a play about collective Asian women in 

this country as seen through the personna of one character, 

an Asian woman who seems to have stepped from our 

midst." The character, June Okawa, was sensitively and 

skillfully played by UMass student, Mariko Miho. The major 

themes of the play, racism, sexism and Third World unity 

were dealt with via various dramatic elements. At times 

comic parody rocked the audience with laughter, while more 

serious points were simultanepusly being considered. These 

comic scenes contradicted the touching poignancy and stark 

■ and biting truths of other more dramatic moments. "Rock 

Garden" was a labor of love as evidenced by the very real 

performances of the close-knit cast: Mariko Miho, Marie 

Anne Masuda, Peggy Liu, Gary Wong, Merritt Crawford, 

Cindy Chu, Leo Murphy, Gerald Baron, Deirdre Sullivan, Britt

cast dramatic shadows on the walls. 
Voluminous sheets of used tobacco cloth 
were draped and spotlighted in strategic areas 
The theatrics of the ballroom decor only served to 
I highlight a menagerie of creatures that proceeded to 

show up that night. Art students, in an effort to capitalize on 
their education, devised costumes which ranged from lavish ele- 
gance to borderline perversion. As in the two previous years of the ball, 
winners of the best costume awards were announced and prizes awarded. 
Chosen on the basis of originality, novelty, quality of costume workmanship 
and/or humorous appeal, this year's recipients included design grad student Bruce 
Rhoades as a rather indescribable "macho man." Ingenuity and the discovery of a tacky 
. ' plastics store going out of business enabled Rhoades to look like an explosion at a Gladwrap 

factory. Three toucans, played by Susan Cahill, Kim Babbitt and Steve Riley, had handsome, beautifully 
painted beaks which only greatly hindered their partaking of refreshment and conversation. Last, and at least 
56 inches, was Dolly Parton, portrayed by another design student, Robin Huffman. Five blonde wigs and some 
generous "illusion" assisted in the image. The curves were a little difficult to handle while dancing, but as Dolly says, that's 

what happens when you try to put ten pounds of flour in a five-pound sack. 

Halfway through the evening, guests were treated to a performance of "The Whistlers"-Norm Phillips and Paul Berube, a 

show which was back by popular demand from its introduction at the First Annual Beaux Arts Ball.

University Dancers Karen Scanlon and 

Gary Schaaf at the Rand Theater, 

May 11, 1979 

AFRIKAN DANCE in its essence is above a casual classifica- 
tion of art. Unlike music and poetry existing in tinne, painting and 
architecture existing in space, the dance exists in both time and 
space; the creator and creation are one and the same. Body 
and soul become indistinct as the conquered body becomes a 
receptacle for the superhuman power of the soul. Repressed 
powers are loosened, dreams are remembered, communication 
with heavenly spirits, which free the body of its own inertia and 
weight, is implemented. The past, present and future become 
one. Mystic galaxies become visible on the head of a pin and 
the dance subsequently become life on a higher level. 

The dances of Afrika are traditionally not considered "art" as it 

-ti - tv 

is known in Western civilization because in Afrika, everyone 
dances. Among African people. It is not uncommon to see 
elderly men and women dancing to the same music as do the 
adolescents. ^ -^., 

There are three basic themes of Afrikan dance. Birth, life and 
death are expressed through the basic unit of life- the family. 
The dance is not performed for the sake of the individual, but for 
the Afrikan communal body. In Afrikan dance we all become 
brothers and sisters even without absolute blood relationships 
and our children will be blessed with many aunts and uncles. 

When the music climbs raw 

into the wind 

there is nothing ieft 

but the dance 

Dance to the power of the rhythms 

that move you 
your iife and your people 
Milk from the source of ourselves 
Trying to be understood is like 
jumping up and down 

on cotton 
tons and tons of white cotton 
Leaping through cob web bed ears 
we have eaten death and passed it out

culminated their tenure at UMass witli an excellent,, 
performance at the Fine Arts Center, Oct. 22ncf 
1978. The once (but not future) bar band had ap- 
peared in '77 at the Student Union Ballroom and, 
were the closing act of the Spring Concert that same 
year. Reportedly, the reception after rt/s year's show 
was a smoker in which the entire band was in atten- 
dance and they were definitely "havin' a party." 

The KINK'S UMass appearance set a box office r 
at the Fine Arts Center, selling out in 2 hours and forty-five 
minutes. Those who waited in the cold February night for 
tickets were not disappointed. Ray Davies and company 
performed a "classic" KINK'S concert. 


closed out the fall semester with a sell- 
out performance at the Fine Arts Center, 
Dec. 5, 1978. Members of their back-up 
band included high powered alumni 
from such groups as Joe Walsh and El- 
ton John. The band consisted of Kenny 
Passerelli (of "Rocky Mountain Way" 
fame), Roger Pope, Caleb Quayle and 
David Kent. The UPC production was 
among the more elaborate to grace the 
concert hall, featuring extravagant light- 
ing and staging techniques. 

On Monday Nov; leth at 8:00 p.m.,

audience as they donned their \i

hair, and were dressed simply in black 
straight leg jeans and plain cotton 
shirts. The Heads' appearance howev- 
er belied their music, which was a cur- 
ious amalgamation-complex and in- 
volved, frequently psycho-analytical. 
Lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Da- 
vid Byrne, whilst on stage, was espe- 
cially arresting. Byrne was tall and thin, 
v/ith a disproportionate long neck, 
black crewcut hair and long angled fea- 
tures. He sang in a near monotone, in a 
staccato delivery punctuated with 
shouts, groans, and drawn out yells.

"Love Goes to Building on Fire." In ad-

Legendary Blues Boss, B.B. KING proved the blues to be 
alive and well in Amherst when he delivered a 90-minute set of 
style which to this day provides meaning and substance to 
people's lives. During the song, "When I'm Wrong, I'm Wrong 
and When I'm Right, I'm Wrong, Right On!" B.B.'s majestic 
personality stepped aside for a history lesson demonstrating the 
"call and response" characteristic of most African and African- 
American music. The band became a Gospel congregation with 
each instrument functioning as participants. "Lucille," B.B.'s 
guitar, was the preacher, leading the service, with Calvin Owens, 
Walter King and Cato Walker on horns, Caleb Emprey on drums, 
Joe Turner on bass, tvlilton Hopkins on guitar and James Toney, 
skillfully transforming the identity of his piano, to portray the 
members of the congregation. The UMass Arts Council spon- 
sored the Sept. 25th 1978 event. 

Variations on a "Jazz" singer's tineme was exemplified by 
two versatile women performers who appeared during the 
1978-79 academic year. 

November 30, 1978 brought the veteran Betty Carter to a 
near capacity crowd at the Fine Arts Center, many of them 
remembering her amazing performance two years previous. 
A talented woman with a distinctive voice and vocal style, Ms. 
Carter proceeded to pierce the listeners' emotional ranges 
with stunning versions of "jazz" standards and cool, cool 

On a different spectrum of dynamic vocalists, Phyllis Hyman 
excited and satisfied her Student Union Ballroom crowd on 
April 11, 1979. With a sound and power emanating from her 
own "jazz" roots (experience with Norm Connors and promi- 
nent sax player Pharoah Sanders), she stretched the bound- 
aries heavily to include a selection of contemporary rock and 
pop tunes.

Student Union Ballroom 

The Muddy Water's Band walked onto the stage in the Student 
Union Ballroom before 700 people on March 12, 1979, as if the 
concert were just another jam session, in typical Blues fashion. The 
band played three or four intense blues numbers before Muddy 
Waters himself even felt the stage floor. 

The feeling of blues was in the air as the expectant crowd 
awaited the appearance of the blues master. The band's instru- 
ments consisted of drums and bass, which took a back seat to two 
guitars and a harmonica, rivaled by a piano. 

Waters appearance and the inevitable roar from the crowd gave 
way to "Going to Kansas City," a classic Blues tune. The duet of 
Waters and his pianist typified the true feeling of Blues. 

Muddy Waters exited with expected applause, but the band 
went on to play a few more tunes led by "J.R." and the pianist. 
Waters then returned and played some intense "slide" guitar, 
really burning up the neck, then leaving the stage with the entire 

The one encore set featured two tunes by the band and two with 
Muddy Waters. 

The crowd left overwhelmed by the sweet sadness of the Blues, 
Muddy Waters style.

MAYA ANGELOU, internationally celebrated poet, author, singer, dancer, educator, historian, actress, song-writer and 
playwrite recited from her work Nov. 9, 1978 at Bowker Auditorium. 

Ms. Angelou was lead singer in the United State's State Department's European tour company of Porgy and Bess, which 
was presented in 22 countries during 1954 and 1955. She coordinated the northern sector of the Southern Christian 
Leadership Conference headed by the late Martin Luther King. She was the associate editor of The Arab Observer in Cairo, 


Maya Angelou's autobiographical novel, "I know Why The Caged Bird Sings," was published by Random House in 1970 
to receive critical acclaim and in 1971 published a book of poems," Just Give Me A Cool Drink Of Water." "Song of 
Solomon" is her most recent novel, currently on the Best-seller lists. Angelou, who refers to herself as "poet, woman, black, 
six-foot tall American," impressed upon the audience the need not to be defeated, despite the adversity that accompanies 

those defeats in life that everyone suffers. She told a 
receptive audience that "writers make us aware we com- 
municate through our literature- it tells what human beings 
can endure and that you go on. It is not a condition of skin 
color, it's written so the hearer can go on from there and 
thrive- thrive with a passion, compassion, humanism and

September 21, 1978 

NIKKI GIOVANNI, "the black princess of poetry," ap- 
peared at the University of Massachusetts Sept. 21, 1978 
in a recital at Bowker Auditorium. She, as a woman of 
many parts, is an honor graduate from Fisk University, a 
person with a deep reverence for the elderly, a lover of 
language and a strong voice in the struggle for the human 
rights of black people. 

Her recital included selections from some of her most 
celebrated works: "Re-Creation," "The Women and the 
Men," "Black Feeling, Black Talk," and "Black Judge- 

Her poetry was a reflection of human condition- of love and its opposite, of the unity that binds woman and man together 
and of a search for freedom that keeps the struggle going. 

She read, "then I awake and dug/I that if I dreamed natural/dreams of being a natural/woman doing what a 
woman/does when she's natural/1 would have a revolution." 

Her work reflected that of a comforter and a teacher. The sparkle her voice inundated the stillness of the silent hall. She 
said that, "... We have to find a way to use the past, because the past does not change- and to shape the future." Ms. 
Giovanni's lecture that evening will be remembered as a voice encouraging all people to strength and tolerance.

they put poems written by Puerto Ri-

were many poems written by Roy

The Class of 1979 entered the University of Massachusetts 
hustling and left freaking. Not just in terms of disco, but 
in attitudes and morals. 

During the month of September 1975, while the fresh- 
people dealt with the severe housing shortage, hoping for a 
double room instead of a triple, the ne»/s events of the nation 
reflected a period of questions and social confusion. 

Plans were already underway for the 1976 Presidential 
race and Jimmy Carter had yet to enter the national 
political scene. The magazine for "high" society, High 
Times, made a transition from an underground publication 
to a nationally known monthly periodical. The best sellers 
during that first maddening week in September were Looking 
for Mr. Goodbar and Breacli of Faith. As other schools 
opened around the country, busing became a major issue, 
especially in Boston, were many violent racial incidents 
threatened. The Gay Liberation movement received national 
recognition on the cover of Time and for the first time, 
social acceptance of homosexuality was becoming more visible. 
The extensive marketing campaigns for the Bicentennial had 
gotten underway and patriotism was slowly returning to the 
American public. One person who did not feel this way 
was Squeaky Fromme, a member of the Charles Manson 
"family", who unsuccessfully attempted to shoot President 
Gerald Ford. 

On the educational scene, evaluations of graduation 
statistics were being studied with some interesting results. 
Nationally, for entering freshmen, it has been estimated 
that 40% of a class will never graduate, that 20% will grad- 
uate but not at the college or university at which they originally 
enrolled, while the remaining 40% will graduate from the 
academic institution at which they began their undergraduate 

One highlight of this graduating class was the avail- 
ability of jobs for engineering majors. Ninety percent of engineering 
majors found jobs and received the highest starting salaries, 
that averaged $21,000. Out of thet total enrollment in 
the UMass School of Engineering, women only comprised 
8% of that. 

Second to engineering majors, students with degrees in 
Business Administration, were receiving offers with salaries 
ranging from $16,000-$18,000. 

Instead of a UMass education, a graduating senior could 
have invested the estimated $10,000-$12,000 in college ex- 
penses in a brand new Porsche 924. As the nation's inflation 
rates climbed, so did the cost of higher education, especially 
for out-of-state students. 

The many questions raised during these turbulent four 
years are far from being answered. Energy, for example, 
has become one of the most pressing issues of the year. 

The student protests against nuclear power became 
everyone's business as the movie The China Syndrome actually 
became a reality in the Three Mile Island Nuclear plant dis- 

The Viet Nam war was once again in the news, but this time 
in the form of movie reviews and the Academy awards rather 
than casualty reports. The Deer Hunter, which 
received Best Picture and Coming Home, whose leads Jane 
Fonda and John Voight won Oscars for their performances, 
captured the very painful era of our nation's history. 

Previous to the graduation ceremony, it was announ- 
ced that there would be a severe gasoline shortage expected 
for the summer ahead. The impending news of this shortage 
did not dampen the spirits of Commencement Day and neither 
did the expected rain. And on May 26, 1979, the Class of 
1979 of the University of Massachusetts began to meet the 
challenge of the 1980's.

P \ ■ mm told some stories between 
autographs about his college days, like when he got 
caught coming in drunk one night by a priest and had 
to serve mass every morning at 5 a.m. and about how 
he and ?red tynn were caught fishing in an illegal 
area in Connecticut, yastrzemski ducked into the 
woods and jCynn got a $100 fine." 

Since my freshman year I have been a floor counselor, a 
student co-senator (with non other than Brian DeLlma), an 
SGA Presidential candidate, an exchange student at the 
University of Alabama and a folk performer at various 
clubs and coffeehouses. 

Jim's name gave our candidacy national wire coverage. 
That was before we dropped out of the race. The 
University of Alabama as the nation's number one college 
football team was a great experience. My local performing 
has allowed me to meet many people and grow as a 
musician. None of these experiences, however, came close 
to what happened on November 9, 1979. 

It began in October. Things were pretty slow at the 
student senate office when Joel Weissman came in to 
phone in a speaking conformation for the Distinguished 
Visitors Program. He logged in a call to confirm a DVP 
presentation. Afterwards, I gave Joel a hard time about 
the way DVP spends a lot of student money on little 
known speakers who draw a small audience. He argued 
the standard, why don't you do something if you can do 
better." The words echoed throughout the office to the 
small crowd taking all this in. I had to confront the 
challenge. Who could it be? Someone who would draw a 
large crowd and at the same time remain within a 
reasonable price-range. Someone who would be willing to 
travel to a college campus on a month's notice. 

Ideas began creeping into my head, led by the thought 
of Bill Lee, former Red Sox pitcher and space cadet, who 
spoke to a packed house at the Campus Center 
Auditorium in the fall of '72. Lee surprised everyone with 
the crowd he drew. The event, originally scheduled for 
C.C. Id, had to be moved when the original room became 
packed within an hour before the speech. It seemed ideal 
for the committee to have chosen Lee. He was fairly 
inexpensive in relation to the crowd he drew and he was 
unemployed in the off-season. That's it ... a local sports 
figurel As I began to think of the elites, one name came 
as naturally as the sun rising in the morning . . . YAZ. 

I remembered the first time I picked up a bat and ball 
in attempt to imitate #8. I knew how to cock a bat in the 
classic Yastrzemski style before 1 even knew what it was 
used for. He was one of the most respected names in my 
household — right up there with John Kennedy and Bob 
Hope. I grew up with Yaz like I grew up with my best 
friend down the street, only Yaz and I never grew apart. 

"Hand me the phone," I said with a smile. 

The Red Sox public relations office put me in touch 
with Yastrzemski's agent. I spoke to the secretary. Kathy 
told me that she would talk to Mr. Yastrzemski about the 
possibility tomorrow, when he was expected to visit the 
office, and that if I called at four, I might be able to 
speak to him myself. 

Well, I spent the next night thinking about what I would 
say to the big gun on the other end of the phone. But 1 

Bob Padula and friend 

was disappointed when I called and missed him by fifteen 
minutes. I was however treated to the good news that 
Kathy had mentioned it to him and he seemed to like the 
idea. She also mentioned that he would be speaking in 
Chicopee on Nov. 8 and he had an open date the 9th. Too 
good to be true. A Thursday night was great and travel 
expenses were almost cut down to zero. 

Finally one Friday, I called the office at about four as 
ritual and got the good news. 

"I spoke to Mr. Yastremski today and he would like to 
visit the university." I was ecstatic. A chance to meet 
Yaz and introduce him on stage. 

"However", she explained, "he won't be able to have 
dinner with the committee and will have to leave right 
after he speaks." 

This barred the customary DVP practise of having an 
informal reception after the lecture to allow students to 
meet the speaker on an interpersonal basis. He did, 
therefore, agree to come down considerably on the 
lecture fee due to the fact that he couldn't fulfill 
customary speaker obligations. 

On the night before Nov. 9th I didn't get much sleep. 
About three that afternoon, I got back from class and 
decided to try to get some sleep before the big event. I 
would have to meet him at 6:30 for a pre-speech press 
conference at the Fine Arts Center. I just tried not to 
think about meeting one of the greatest superstars in 
baseball history in little over three hours. 

It was shortly after that I received a call. Refusing to 
open my eyes from needed sleep, I reached around for 
the phone. 


"Hello Robert? . . . This is Carl." I didn't recognize the 


"Carl Yastrzemski." It was the fastest anyone ever 
went from almost total sleep to wide-awake. 

"Yes Mr. Yastrzemski .. I ... I'm looking forward to 
meeting you tonight." 

"Yes. Same here. Listen ... I'm in Springfield now and I 
decided to take a shower and come up there right now. 
Where should I meet you?" 

I had to think quick, I was poor as hell with directions 
and the committee hadn't planned to have dinner 


"Arc you familiar with campus at all?" 

"No, I have no idea how to get there." 

"Alright, pick up 91 to Rt. 9 in Amherst. Then, let's see, 
I'll meet you in the McDonald's parking lot on Rt. 9." 

"Great, I'll meet you there. By the way, what should I 

Wear? I had only thought of Yaz wearing a baseball 

"Wear a sweater or anything comfortable, don't worry 
about it. I'll meet you at 4:30." 

"Wake the hell up Bob! You've got to do something 
quick," I said to myself. 

I called every member of DVP to ask advice and try to 
organize a quick dinner. No luck. I searched my wallet . . . 
Four bucks. Not enough to eat at McDonald's. D.C. food? 
No way . . . the guy only has a few good years left as it 

I decided to call on my old SGA running mate/U of 
Alabama sidekick Jimmy Carter. I didn't break the news 

"Jim, brace yourself. Make sure you're sitting down." 

"What? What is it?" 

"You sure you're ready?" 

"YES. Tell me." 

"Carl Yastraemski is eating dinner in your apartment at 
5:30 . . . Jim . . . are you there?" 

At about five, I was dropped off in McDonald's parking 
lot. in my three piece suit I must have looked like some 
kind of special agent. I received strange looks from those 
who had just munched down their quarter pounders. I had 
been thinking about what to say when a beautiful sky-blue 
'79 Lincoln Continental slowly approached the lot and 
turned in. My eyes opened wide as I saw a man inside 
peering out from behind the sun visor ... it was himi I 
ran up to the door to open it and engage in a much 
rehearsed introduction and handshake, however, when I 
tried the door it was locked. He reached over and went 
to pull the button but it popped out in his hand. This 
could only have happened to me. 

With handshakes we introduced ourselves. I was a bit 
surprised by the lines on his face and a touch of grey at 
the sideburns. He wore a dark blue alligator sweater and a 
light blue shirt underneath. As we drove to Southwood 
Apartments, I noticed he had power everything. 

His relaxed manner and common dialect made me feel 
like I was talking to an old friend, helped by the fact that 
I had followed everything he'd done in the past decade. 
We talked about Ed King and politics. I warned him that 
King would be an unpopular topic for a speech in this area 
and I told him of how local sportswriters jumped on the 
fact that King had given Yastrzemski's father a job with 

"Yes, my father got a laborers job at Massport for $1.50 
an hour. He just filled out an application like anyone else," 
he laughed. 

Yaz spoke about his son Michael who was soon to enter 
college. He asked me a lot of questions about college life 
— co-ed living, fields of study, etc. By the time we got 
to Southwood, I felt comfortable. 

After a few introductions at Jim's apartment we all sat 
down and talked over a few beers. When Yaz refused a 
glass, I knew he was one of us. He was very calm as he 
spoke of his attempt to keep abreast of what current 
college life is like. When he mentioned pot smoking with 
disdain, I broke into a cold sweat as I searched the room 
for paraphernalia, but Jim's roomate had dutifully cleared 
the room of all pipes, bongs and papers. 

My greatest surprise of the night was when the future 
Hall of Famer pulled out a pack of Winstons. For an 

instant I felt like snatching them away from him for the 
good of the team. 

Yaz also spoke of his daughter who was attending 
Florida State. He joked about surprise checks on his 
daughter and drilling his son with a ball when he makes a 
fielding error. He continually answered the same questions 
— his age, the team's great dive in '78 etc. — at the 
apartment, in the car, at the press conference, but he 
never seemed to tire of them. Jim asked him if he ever 
gets tired of talking baseball and Yaz sternly answered, 
"No, I never do." 

Jim came out to announce dinner was cooked and 
turned to Yaz to say, "You'll have to get your own Carl, 
it's cafeteria style around here." Yaz laughed, brought his 
plate up and fought for the biggest steak. 

As we hustled to the Fine Arts Center for the press 
conference, it was easy for Ron Niederwerfer of Student 
Activities and I to hide him from the crowd because he 
wasn't the huge person you'd expect a superstar to be. As 
we approached the back entrance I stopped Yaz and said, 
"We can't go in there with beers, we'll have to drink 
them here." Yaz nodded. 

As I tried to guzzle the remains, I was struck by the 
irony of the situation. It reminded me of drinking in the 
woods before a high school dance and trying to get past 
the principle at the door. He seemed so much like the guy 
next door. Yaz was later to tell Jim that he was kind of 
embarrassed by all his fame; that ballplayers were 
everyday people but fans don't really believe it. 

After the press conference Yaz lit another Winston and 
asked Ron and I what he should speak on. I couldn't 
believe it. I had expected him to have written briefs or at 
least a good outline. 

"Just tell me a little about the crowd and I'll decide 
what to say when I get out there," he said with a serious 
look. We told him about the popularity of Bill Lee, the 
fear that Tiant would leave the team, the frustration of 
the '78 collapse and about the growing bitterness toward 
Ed King. 

His speech was perfect and Yaz spoke until well after 
the predicted 9 o'clock departure. During the speech I sat 
behind him and listened trying not to spend too much 
time staring at the interpreter for the deaf. At two points 
in it, he stopped, and turned to me to remember some 
question a little kid had asked at the press conference 
and what time it was ... I failed on both. My one chance 
to help the guy I would have jumped out a window for, 
and I blew it. The little kid's remark was made during a 
departure to the men's room and I never cared to wear a 
watch. Just my luck. 

After the speech, I quickly left the stage with Yaz and 
tried to lead him out for a fast getaway. Before we made 
it up a back stairway, he was hit up for three autographs, 
three handshakes and one kiss and a hug. As we jogged 
upstairs and out the back way, I thought I'd take a chance 
and ask him if he wanted to stop for a beer on the way. 
He asked about the possibilities and when Ron described 
Fitzwillys, he accepted. 

We got there and began drinking light beers. At the 
bar, I couldn't help thinking of a Lite beer commercial. In 
fact I asked Yaz about them and he agreed that they 
were well done but informed me that to be involved in 
one of them, you must be retired. Yaz told some stories 
between autographs about his college days when he got 
caught coming in drunk one night by a priest and had to 
serve mass every morning at 5 a.m. and about how he 
and Fred Lynn were caught fishing in an illegal area in 
Connecticut. Yaz ducked into the woods and Lynn got a

MAY 12, 1979 



The Grateful Dead, that elusive array of musical talent bordering on the periphery of 
a pseudo-cultish family, buried some 40,000 University of Massachusetts students and 
their guests beneath four hours of musical vibes on May 12, 1979 - a decade after the 
band's emergence from the sixties. 

And it all started with tamari sauce; we never would have had the Grateful Dead play 
at our university if it weren't for their private chef who always tours with the band and 
makes the best tamari sauce. The Dead love it. Jack Albeck, concert organizer, met the 
cook at a Stephen Stills concert in New Jersey over Spring Break. While most people 
were sunning in Florida the chef was putting in a good word for UPC. The next 'thing 
you know . , , 

Rumor of the show leaks out. Drug dealers mobilize with efficiency and grace. Pound 
upon pound upon pound of cocaine, marijuana, psilocybin, acid, speed, mescaline, 
peyote, downs and stuff that ain't even been invented yet flood the area. 

The Dead heads, somewhat fanatic devotees of the Dead predominantly 25 to 30 years 
of age, dot the outskirts of Alumni Stadium the night before, adorning their tattered 
skeleton and rose T-shirts - holes under their armpits, weathering the shitty pre-dawn 

It turns out to be one of those murky days where the wet stuff just sits, dancing above 
your head. I imagine it splattering off the huge plexi-plastic multi-million dollar dome 
we don't have. 

And then . . . Bob Weir struts up to the microphone and says, "You'll have to excuse 
us folks, weee just got ta get everythin' perrrfect." 



And perfect they are, as they open with Jack Straw, an older favorite. "We can share the 
women we can share the wine ..." 

No sooner than they open their mouths when 10,000 screaming Dead heads storm the west 
gate of the stadium crashing — the poor devil who got trampled. 

... we can share what we've got of yours 'cause we've shared all of mine . . 

He drives back from the hospital, cast and all, to see the rest of the show. 

The throbbing crowd can't get close enough to the stage. Crunching sounds can be heard as 
ribs crack. To and fro the clump of people sway in unison, squishing and squashing, breathing 
and singing, drinking and throwing up. 

The older Dead heads, elated to hear the scrap of sound igniting a memory of an era buried in 
the sixties, clash spiritually with the younger fans- the ones who have ^joosted the Dead to a 
financial resurrection listening to the newer stuff like Shakedown Street and Goodlovin'. The 
Dead accomodate both with a balanced collection of selections. 

During the intermission' I walk over to Garcia and shake his hand and stare and stare and 
stare. So he asks me the questions. A bit of marketing research? His curiosity is aimed at the 
atmosphere preceding the Dead's arrival on campus. I tell him they are the hottest controversy 
on the student newspaper's editorial page since a local feminist wrote about a series of articles 
dealing with the ability of women to give birth to children without the need for men. Garcia 
knows what parthenogenisis is — right on! 

And they continue to play, "Standing on a tower, world at my command, you just keep on 
dancin' while I'm playin' in the band."

of the graduating class of 1979. 
Custom demands that commence- 
ment addresses be one of two 
kinds: either a romantic and nos- 
talgic reminiscence, or the classic 
"we are the saviours of the future" 
address. The first type, the retro- 
spective tearjerker, is identified 
by the speaker waxing eloquent on 
the idiosyncracies of the Universi- 
ty and the marvelous fun we had 
avoiding a quality education at the 
expense of the taxpayers of the 
Commonwealth. I choose not to 
speak of these things for two rea- 
sons. First, there are too many in 
this class who would rather forget 
the past four or five years, I sus- 
pect, and it would be callous in- 
deed for me to subject that prob- 
able majority to five minutes of 
soppish drivel. Second, the fon- 
dest memories I hold are of such a 
nature that if told here today, in 
front of these administrators, I 
suspect I would be suspended be- 
fore this speech is finished. 

Instead, I wish to devote my 
time to the latter type of address, 
and all I bring to this tired ap- 
proach is 'refreshing' pessimism. 
It is customary, and perhaps even 
appropriate, to dwell on the future 
of our select group. I must review, 
in the most pessimistic terms, the 
litany of problems that besets our 
nation. It is all too easy to superfi- 
cially identify inflation, unemploy- 
ment, the energy shortage, the 
arms race and poverty. Rather, we 
are facing, I believe, a set of crises 
which, taken together, may 
threaten the growth and stability 
of our nation. 

Some of these crises are becom- 
ing quite obvious: for instance, 
how can we maintain our position 
as the leader of the free world and 
support alleged democracies 
around the world when the Ameri- 
can public, in the aftermath of 
Vietnam, refuses to sanction the 
presence of armed U.S. troops on 
unfriendly foreign soil — reducing 
us to buzzing foreign cities with 
unarmed fighter jets? We are fac- 
ing a crisis in "modern day" eco- 
nomic theory, as this nascent sci- 
ence finds itself unable to satis- 
factorily answer the complex and 
inordinately difficult questions 
the public and politicians have 
posed for it. But beyond these, a 
more important crisis we face in 
the SCfs (or perhaps more diffi- 
cult) is that of reconciling our so- 

cietal dreams with human nature. 

In the eCs we were awakened to 
the rampant injustices that exist- 
ed, and they still exist, in our 
country, and we weathered the fe- 
rocity of this era, attaining respite 
only in the silent tragedy of the 
deaths of three leaders whom, 
some claim, had the vision, fore- 
sight, and charisma to bring us, 
together, into the 70's. Other less- 
er leaders have taken up the cries 
and causes of the SCs, but none of 
the burdens; leaving us, the chil- 
dren of the 70's, with nothing but 
sociologists searching high and 
low for common themes and cant 
phrases to capsulize our genera- 
tion, before it is over, for our own 

In the eCs and 70's, the Con- 
gress and the courts established 
the fundamental philosophy of our 
'new society': that no person, be- 
cause of race, creed, color, sex, 
national origin, religion or handi- 
cap, be denied equal rights, equal 
protection of the laws or equal ac- 
cess to employment, education, or 
any other public segment of our 
society. We dedicated ourselves 
to eliminating the vestiges of past 
discrimination against all citizens, 
and the 80's loom large as the peri- 
od wherein we must deliver on 
those promises. The laws have 
changed in a short period of time, 
federal and state governments 
have promulgated rules, estab- 


lished boards, and poured billions 
of dollars, collectively, into these 
efforts, and today — 25 years 
after the Supreme Court's deci- 
sion in Brown v. Board of Educa- 
tion of Topeka, Kansas — radical 
and promising changes have, with- 
out question taken place. But rules, 
boards, and money cannot change 
some of the institutions nor the 
minds or spirits of many of our 
citizens fast enough. And the sad 
fact is, the battle is yt/5f beginning. 
And that is the problem. Can our 
society change fast enough, and 
are we still willing to make the sac- 
rifices necessary to realize these 
distant dreams? Human nature. 
People wondering out loud why 
other groups can't make it like 
they did, or groups arguing 
amongst themselves as to which 
has been the most disadvantaged. 
People applying old values to a new 
time, rejecting new values from an 
old time frame, and spurning old 
values from a new time frame. And 
that is human nature, and little but 
time can change it. That means 
that the answer lies in the young 
and their education. But that is a 
long, arduous and contentious pro- 
cess that may bear sweet fruit 
two, three, or more generations 
hence, and the patience of too 
many people wears dangerously 
thin. In the meantime, we will fight 
the battles in Congress and the 
Courts, and if we fail to find an 

answer, or people refuse to com- 
promise, the battleground will be 
the streets. 

We are the ones who must try to 
straighten out this mess; we are 
the newest cannon fodder to be 
shot into the cruel world from, if I 
may become Freudian, the last 
womb we will ever know, and sad- 
dled with the Herculean task of 
fixing the ills of this society for 
our children. But in so doing we 
will be leaving our mark on the 
world. I suspect that I will be so 
ashamed of my mark that I will 
pray the next generation condems 
me to obscurity. After all, there 
was more than enough talent in 
last year's class, there will be more 
than enough in next year's class, 
and there is more than enough in 
all the graduating classes in the 
country today to tackle the 
world's problems and still allow 
those of us who wish to slip away 
unobtrusively to the dark recesses 
of the unemployment office. 

We came into this world naked 
and ignorant, and we are today 
thrust into a new world clothed in 
parchment and armed with the 
knowledge accumulated from 
three Humanities courses, three 
Social Science courses, and three 
Math and Science courses. The 
world we enter cannot be all that 
bad, though. Art Buchwald noted 
once that when the reins of gov- 
ernment switched hands on Au- 

gust 8, 1974, and our nation's high- 
est official was driven from office 
for what we would like to consider 
a heinous crime, there were no 
tanks on Pennsylvania Avenuej no 
soldiers marched the streets; no 
city lay under martial law; nor 
were Republicans fleeing the coun- 
try for their lives. And all we have 
is our newly heralded maturity, 
our timeless idealism, and a de- 
gree of respect that is based on 
the perceived quality of our insti- 
tution. And with the support public 
higher education is receiving, that 
may not be much to speak of in the 
near future. And so, I look forward 
to seeing you all again in twenty 
years in the rubble I pessimistical- 
ly predict, and we can then talk of 
the halcyon days at UMass. And I 
will admit then how much I miss 
the University: the sanctuary that 
is college life; the assuredness of 
my next meal; Metawampe, whose 
legend I gave one hell of a run for 
its money — all those 'little 
things'. But most of all, I will miss 
some very special friends, whose 
advice and counsel, warmth, af- 
fection, support and smiles kept 
me going, day after day, when it 
all seemed so pointless. 
I'm sure you will, too. 
Thank you. 



former Collegian editor Dorothy A. Clark probes the force behind 
the man in his most revealing and significant interview ever 

After spending 20 years with the federal 
government, Randolph Wilson Bromery 
embarked on a career in academics. Re- 
cruited in 1967 by the University's geology 
department to teach an obscure discipline 
of geophysics, he became department 
chairman about one year after his arrival 
here, unaware that the road he had chosen 
would lead him to be one of the Universi- 
ty's most prominent, and sometimes con- 
troversial individuals. 

His "eight-year sentence" as chancellor, 
as he humorously described his role as the 
campus' chief administrative officer in his 
commencement speech, would provide the 
Amherst campus with vast changes, some 
undertaken in the demands of the official 
capacities of the position, and others in his 
unofficial contributions. 

During the final days in his Whitmore 
office. Dr. Bromery reflects on his major 
role at UMass, issues he has been con- 
fronted with as a result of that role, and his 

INDEX: How would you sum up your 
years as chancellor? 

Si?OM£/?y; When I came to the Univer- 
sity I had no plans of being chancellor of 
the campus. When they asked me to come 
to the administration it was really sup- 
posed to be a one or two year stint just to 
set up the new office for the vice-chancel- 
lor of student affairs. So I was sort of 
catapulted into the chancellorship. I guess 
the best way I could sum it up is that I 

don't think I've had more aggravations, 
but I don't think I've had more fun. I don't 
think I've had more tense and difficult 
times. I don't think I've had eight years 
where a lot of the people that I've met I 
really liked working for and working with. 
Some of the things I wanted to do out here 
I've done and I've learned along the way 
something my grandfather and my father 
used to always tell me — that if you ever 
decide to do something, don't tell anybody. 
If you tell them, everybody's in the way, 
either trying to help you along, which is a 
hindrance, or they're in the way to keep 
you from getting there because they want 
to get there. So for some of the things I've 
wanted to do, such as being one of the 
founders of CCEBS, I felt it would be an 
interesting phenomenon for blacks and 
other minorities to have the chief adminis- 
trative officer as their advocate instead of 
having their advocate somewhere down 
below trying to work up against the sys- 
tem, and provide flexibility and opportuni- 
ties for things to happen within the system 
using the procedures and rules and regula- 
tions that the system uses to see these 
things happen. The reason I did that was 
because once you do that, you set a pat- 
tern, so that even when you're not there 
the pattern stays. I could have had all 
kinds of offices of equal opportunity em- 
ployment and all that, but that's anomo- 
lous to the standard pattern for institu- 
tions. You go to any institution of higher 

education, you go to any corporate institu- 
tion, you go to any governmental agency, 
state or federal, and the Affirmative Ac- 
tion office is an appendage. It's not an 
integral part of that system. It's just 
plugged in there at some late date and it's 
still temporary after all these years. Affir- 
mative Action officers should be working 
themselves out of a job. Most aren't. 
They're entrenching. But they're still nev- 
er part of the system. The only way they 
come into action is when they catch the 
system with its hand in the till. So what I 
said was that I should like to see the insti- 
tution make accessibilities for women and 
minorities just as institutionalized as ev- 
erything else they do. And that's what I've 
tried to do. 

INDEX: What do you feel are your major 
contributions to the University? 
BROMER Y: I think one is the acquisition 
of the Dubois Papers also, I think the de- 
velopment and growth of CCEBS and the 
Afro Am. department and Affirmative 
Action without having a mechanism to do 
it. I think a lot of people will complain 
about Affirmative Action and compare 
this institution in the state with its popula- 
tion, with other institutions in the state. 
You don't have to go that far to do that. In 
fact, you just have to go down the street. 
And I like to think that I did contribute to 
us surviving the budget cuts. I know I 
played a major role in developing a con- 
tract and a relationship as a result of that 



contract where we don't have the rigidity 
and we don't have the alienation and the 
animosity that exist at other institutions 
that have a faculty union. I also believe 
that the Amherst campus is looked on by 
the state and the legislature in a better 
light than a lot of the other public institu- 
tions throughout the state. I also think I 
gave the institution greater national and 
international visibility in Africa, Japan 
and Korea. I was instrumental and created 
the situation so that some of the better 
academic programs exist. And I guess the 
other thing is that I spent a lot of time and 
gave a very high priority to the continu- 
ation of the growth and development of 
the five colleges. My assessment is that I 
made a very important contribution to the 
community at a particular time. 
INDEX: What are you going to do now? 
BROMERY: I'm going to pick up my re- 
search and I'm going to go back and do 
some more consulting work. I did a lot of 
consulting work in Africa. I'm very frus- 
trated because I've been to South Africa 
and I saw the conditions down there. I saw 
the almost hopelessness of the' blacks in 
South Africa and I'm frustrated because I 
just have the feeling that I'm almost help- 
less to do anything. My feeling is that it 
looks like violence is almost inevitable. But 
the thing that bothers me is that there are 
so many people calling for violence and 
the price is going to be awful high. I guess 
I have to figure some way that something 
has to be done to make significant changes 
in South Africa so that blacks do have 
both political and economical emancipa- 
tion. Right now all they're getting is just a 
little bit — maybe most of that is in prom- 
ises — of some kind of economic emanci- 
pation. But economic emancipation is not 
the answer. It becomes very fragile and 
you become very vulnerable because if 
they can give it, they can take it away. You 
also have to have some political emancipa- 
tion so that white South Africa can't take 
it away. And I really believe there's two 
kinds of leverage. One kind of leverage is 
for all U.S. corporations to withdraw from 
South Africa. That might cause economic 
collapse. The other is one that I sort of 
developed to at least take a look at. I've 
argued that the U.S. corporations have 
been in South Africa for all these years 
and have reaped enormous profits because 
of paying the blacks very low wages. So 
I'm saying that they have an account down 
there to settle. They owe those blacks all 
that back pay, and my feeling is that let- 
ting them withdraw might be the easiest 
way. Right now, as they raise the salaries 
of blacks, the economic viability, speaking 
from corporate accounts, decreases. They 

aren't able to get cheap labor anymore. So 
at some point they just withdraw and say 
that's it. They can go to some other place 
where labor is cheap. So I'm saying I think 
that at least we should consider the fact 
that U.S. corporations have over the years 
accumulated a debt with the blacks in 
South Africa and that debt is going to 
have to be repaid in some way. I don't 
know whether I want to give them the 
luxury of being able to walk away and say, 
"I don't owe anybody." 
INDEX: Will you be doing any teaching? 
BROMERY: It is my intention to stay on 
the faculty. I'm going to be teaching geo- 

INDEX: What will it be like going from 
an administrator to faculty member? 
BROMERY: I'm looking forward to it. I 
think most people, including people within 
the University, have no idea what the 
chancellorship is like. They think you 
come in the office at 9 o'clock and at 5 
o'clock you go home like everybody else. 
But you don't do that. The typical day I 

/ finished high school 
without any courses in 
math. Blaclc males weren't 
allowed to take arithmetic 
when I was in high school. 
They said you didn Y need 
it to mop floors. 

have is to get in at about 8 or 8:30. I get 
away at about 6:30 or 7 in the evening. I've 
always tried to keep busy because I think 
the chief administrative officer of a Uni- 
versity like this should have national input. 
I'm on the boards of directors of those 
corporations which I think are important, 
because after all, the basic economic fact 
of the U.S. is founded on the corporate 
structure. And corporations also are a ma- 
jor source of funds, outside of federal and 
state funds, that plan for the University. 
Public institutions like UMass haven't 
done very much like that. Most of the 
presidents and chancellors of public insti- 
tutions are not on the boards of directors 
of corporations. Public institutions have 
never sought those things, and they almost 
have to be sought out. The corporations 
are very selective of whom they pick. 
They're just like everybody else, they feel 
its most important to have a prestigious 
private institution president than even a 
prestigious public institution president. 

The amount of grants that have been made 
at this institution since I've been on corpo- 
ration boards has increased substantially 
without me doing anything. I couldn't do 
anything because that would be a conflict 
of interest. The decision of whom they're 
going to give grant money to is not only 
based on what is the written information, 
but also, there's a recognition factor. If 
they respect you they're also going to re- 
spect the institution. 

INDEX: How will you be affected by the 
new faculty union now that you will be a 
faculty member? 

BROMERY: I never have been a great 
advocate of faculty unions. I understand 
the psyche that one would have to believe 
that a union is important and I also under- 
stand the circumstances and the condi- 
tions that were in existence when this fac- 
ulty decided it had to unionize. But I'm the 
person that chose the geological and geo- 
physical profession and chose to leave the 
federal government and come into higher 
education because I can belong to a com- 
munity, but yet I can maintain my own 
independence. I guess I'm not a person 
who pays much attention to the trappings 
of job security. Some people do. And I 
realize some people have to because 
they're vulnerable. But I always figured if 
I ever get to a point where I can't get 
another job, I'm in trouble. Personally I'm 
in trouble. I'm in trouble with myself. 
When you have tenure and union together 
it seems to me that that's overkill. At some 
point its going to work against the faculty 
because if you get swamped, you ruin the 
tenure. At some point the very thing that 
unions were formed to protect will be the 
very same thing that I think we'll lose. 
INDEX:Whsit is the current relationship 
between the faculty and administration? 
BROMERY: It hasn't changed things 
here as much as in a lot of other institu- 
tions primarily because the contract we 
bargained left a lot of things sort of open, 
it permitted a lot of flexibility. We're one 
of the few institutions that didn't bargain 
away faculty governance. Most institu- 
tions say if you're going to have a union 
then you're going to have all that other 
stuff. You do everything through the union 
contract and anything not specified is 
management rights. Both sides of the table 
at this institution didn't want to go to that 
point. But that was the first contract. The 
second contract, when its going to be bar- 
gained, starts where you end up the first 
time and you try to tighten it up. Manage- 
ment tries to hold on to what it's got and 
maybe even take some things back and the 
faculty is going to try to hold on to what 
it's got and get more. So the contract is 


going to be less and less loose. It's going to 
get tighter and tighter until at some point 
down the way, the traditional form of gov- 
ernance, I'm afraid, could be squeezed 

INDEX: You've had a number of years to 
watch and be involved in the University's 
expansion. What is your assessment? 
BROMERY: We not only expanded in 
size so we could take in more students, but 
what we tried to do was open access to 
students who normally didn't have access 
before. We had 36 blacks on campus in 
1967. That probably constituted a signifi- 
cant percentage of those who applied. 
When you open access you not only say 
you're going to take more than 36 black 
students into the institution, but you have 
to go out and let the students know that 
there's something out there they can bene- 
fit from. So the expansion of the institu- 
tion broadened the constituency of the stu- 
dent body that we have here and opened 
the opportunity for access not only for stu- 
dents to come into this institution, but for 
jobs and positions for professionals and 
non-professionals from a broader cross- 
section. The expansion academically fo- 
cused in certain ways. We have certain 
centers of academic access that we built 
while we were also expanding. So we not 
only got large in size, but we got better in 
quality. I think the growth here has been a 
growth in size and in recognition. 
INDEX: What about your past. What has 
it done to shape the man you are today? 
BROMERY: My sons and daughters say 
I'm old fashioned. And I am. My parents 
and my grandparents taught us an awful 
lot. They may not have had the formal 
education, but they sure had a lot of what 
my grandfather used to call motherwit. 
We were a very close family, we were an 
extended family. We lived in the same 
house for over 150 years. Sometimes I 
think the house looked like it. I remember 
as a child my family did not mind dishing 
out capital punishment. They were strong 
advocates of "if you spare the rod you 
spoil the child." But we didn't die. I never 
suffered irreparable psychological prob- 
lems because I got a whipping when I did 
something wrong. I just was either more 
careful when I did it again or I didn't do it 
any more. It teaches you to be ingenious 
when you're devising ways of doing things 
without getting caught. It didn't matter 
who wielded the stick first. We had peck- 
ing order. If I had to get hit, I would like to 
be hit by my mother. But that was a dilem- 
ma. 1 had so much respect for her and she 
was such a mild-mannered person that 
when it got to the point where she was 
angry enough to hit you, it really bothered 

me. It hurt me, it crushed me that my 
mother would strike me. But she did it. 
But the worst one was my grandmother. 
She would send you down to the yard to 
cut the switches to bring back to her that 
she was going to whip you with. And if 
they were too small she'd send you down 
and add them to the group you already 
gave her so there'd be a big bundle. So you 
learned to calibrate how much you could 
bring that was going to satisfy her that 
wouldn't hurt you too bad. But we loved 
each other. I was brought up in a very 
segregated town. We were in Maryland. I 
went to the first through 1 2th grades in the 
same building. I had a very fine English 
teacher that I would stack up against any 
teacher in any school in this country. And 
I think that was the biggest thing, because 
my English teacher said if you can learn to 
read and comprehend, and express your- 
self orally or on paper, then you can do 
anything you want. And she was right. I 
finished high school without taking any 
courses in math. Black males weren't al- 

Contrary to what the me- 
dia said I wasn't tearing 
myself up because I really 
wanted the presidency I 
have much more flexibil- 
ity than that. The only 
time you do that is when 
that's the only option you 

lowed to take arithmetic when I was in 
high school. They said you didn't need it to 
mop floors. I finished high school at six- 
teen. I was to young to do any work but I 
lied about my age and went to work in 
Detroit. This was just about the time the 
war started. I joined the Air Force. When 
I got out of the Air Force I applied to the 
University of Michigan because I had the 
GI Bill. Michigan wrote me a letter and 
said there must be something wrong with 
your records because it shows you gradu- 
ated from high school but there are no 
mathematics courses. So I wrote back and 
said I didn't take any mathematics course, 
but I did have a math teacher, and in the 
evenings after school I used to go to his 
house and he taught me. Michigan said if 
you take a correspondence course and pass 
it, we'll let you in. I finished the course in 
about three months and Michigan let me 
in as a provisional student. Of course, with 
that record in math, it was difficult for me 
to think that I was going to be a math 
major. No way. But I had to take certain 

math courses, and I took one from a pro- 
fessor who wrote the textbook. And I real- 
ly got interested in math. So I decided my 
major. I graduated with an undergraduate 
'degree as a double major in math and 
physics and chemistry. And I graduated 
cum laude. So when students tell me that 
they have academic deficiencies and they 
come out of a high school in Springfield or 
Boston and tell me they can't do math, 
they can't get away with that. It depends 
on what you want to do. If you have a 
potential to do it then you can do it. But it 
also let me know that you have deficien- 
cies, if you really want to you can get rid of 
them. But you have to have somebody who 
encourages you. I went to Michigan for 
two years. My mother at that time was 
dying of lateral sclerosis. One summer 
they told me she wasn't going to make it. I 
was going to school year-round so I trans- 
ferred down to Howard University which 
was close to my home. Two things hap- 
pened. One, my mother didn't die that 
summer, and two, I met my wife. So I 
stayed that fall and I graduated from 
Howard University. I found that going to 
Howard, that as far as I'm concerned, a 
predominately black university played a 
very important role for me because there 
you had en loco parentis personified. Fac- 
ulty members used to chew you out in the 
cafeteria line because they knew you 
messed up in class, and they put all your 
business in the street or embarrassed you 
in front of your girlfriend and made you go 
back in there and study. It was like a fam- 
ily. When I needed help they were there, 
and yet they didn't let me get away with 
anything. It really helped a lot. 
INDEX: You were very instrumental in 
the development of the Afro Am depart- 
ment. How were you affected by the politi- 
cal rift involving former provost Paul Pur- 

BROMERY: That was probably the most 
distressing time of my 31 -year professional 
career. Even though I had great expecta- 
tions, I made the choice. But there was a 
combination of circumstances, external 
and internal, and I think in part the Uni- 
versity has to bear some responsibility for 
that. I'm not only talking about white or 
black, I think both, because I think the 
provost most needed support from the 
black community and it wasn't there. It 
was only there after the circumstances got 
so stretched and so far out of hand, and 
then it was the wrong time. I think one of 
the things we've got to learn is that we 
can't air all of our differences in public 
because the media loves that. I think that 
in this particular case the media exploited 
a group of people and a group of people 


played right into the media's hands. I felt 
the best I could do was just sit back and 
make my initial statement. And it was the 
truth there was no subterfuge. It was a 
difference in style. It had nothing to do 
with the person's competency, but there 
are different ways of trying to achieve the 
same goals. And I've always been one to 
believe — and this is another of my grand- 
father's and father's sayings — that you 
mustn't let anyone force you into justify- 
ing what you're doing. Because if you 
spend all your time justifying, you never 
really do it. Secondly, there's two ways 
that you can go. You can either try to win 
the battle and maybe never win the war, or 
you can keep the war in mind and try to 
win that and back away from some of the 
battles and come around another way. So 
my strategy has been when I didn't want to 
waste all my time bucking the system, 
what I was going to do was let the system 
bend to the way I want and utilize the 
system itself, use the dynamics of the sys- 
tem to do some of the things I wanted to 
do. I've never been one for rhetoric. A lot 
of people, even my friends, black and 
white, have said you should go out there 
and not let them say that. But a newspaper 
has a life of about 24 hours. It dies after 
that unless you breathe life into it. And so 
sometimes its best to just leave it alone. I 
think in the case of the provost, I certainly 
did what I could to get past the difficulties. 
But it was a case where a man was forced 
into a position by external forces, and 
forced to take a position. 
INDEX: What is your assessment of the 
racial climate on campus? 
BROMERY: I think there's going to be 
more and more altercations. I think there 
is a growing concern, not only here but in 
the whole valley, because I think we 
passed a point out there about two or three 
years before Bakke. The thing that didn't 
bother me so much was the Supreme 
Court's decision. What bothered me was 
that California, as far as I'm concerned, 
set it up to lose it. So when people try to 
blanie Bakke I look at what's behind all 
that. And if you wanted to take a case to 
court to lose, California's position is one 
that you knew you could. I had a feeling 
that California wanted to lose it. No mat- 
ter what they say. So I'm not sure that 
Bakke vs. California was there, I think it 
was Bakke and California vs. Affirmative 
Action. One of the hardest jobs I had at 
this institution was not to permit the insti- 
tution to use what I call the "piece of the 
pie approach." I don't think it's a planned 
conspiracy, I think it just happens in our 
system. They say there is a certain piece of 
the institutional pie that they're going to 

let non-white males have. So what happens 
is that piece of pie has to have blacks, 
Hispanics, Indian Americans, Asians and 
white women there, because that's all 
they're going to get is that piece of pie. 
When you do that — the larger piece of 
pie I'm not talking about the individuals in 
that larger piece of pie, but I mean the 
collective — then if you have any struggle, 
it takes place within that piece of pie for 
how much they want. The struggle is with- 
in. They never think about the fact they're 
limited by the boundaries of that piece of 
pie. I never wanted that to happen. I think 
what has happened in higher education is 
that whomever decided what the piece of 
pie was for the non-white male, that pie is 
getting filled up. And so now, they're be- 
ginning to splash over a bit and displace 
the white male. When you start doing that 
you're stepping on people's feet, you're 
moving into their neighborhood. And so I 
think there is going to be a reaction to it. 
You can't call it a backlash, a backlash is 
some reaction you do after the fact. 
INDEX: What are your feelings of not 
being selected president of the University? 
BROMERY: I made the decision. I felt it 
only proper that if I was going to be the 
only internal candidate for the presidency 
and I wasn't selected, then whomever they 
select should have the opportunity to de- 
termine whether or not I was going to stay 
on, because the new president would come 
into the system of which I knew more 
about, I was a candidate in there, and it 
may be very uncomfortable. So, rather 
than have them either have to live with me 
and then our relationship could be disas- 
trous, or they would have to ask me to step 
aside in time, I decided that if I didn't get 

it then the new president would determine 
if I stayed on. I knew long before the inci- 
dent with Paul Puryear that I wasn't going 
to get the presidency. It was another nail 
in the coffin. But I knew I wasn't going to 
get the presidency because it was obvious 
to me that the board wanted a clean state. 
After all, they lost three chancellors and a 
president. If I'd been singled out then you 
could say "yes, they had it in for Bill Bro- 
mery." The board decided after Bob 
Wood left they'd get a new administration. 
I don't support that. That's what they de- 
cided and they're the trustees. But I knew 
that I wasn't going to be there. I was the 
person who was in charge of collective bar- 
gaining and there were perceptions on the 
part of the trustees — and I think they 
were wrong perceptions — that the Uni- 
versity community would never accept me 
as president, and I think that was a misper- 
ception. Also, I think they had a certain 
criteria they wanted, and I didn't fit that. 
I'm not sure what that was. Contrary to 
what the media said I wasn't tearing my- 
self up becuase I really wanted the presi- 
dency. I have much more flexibility than 
that. The only time you do that is when 
that's the only option you have. Actually, 
it worked out fine for me. I think what was 
happening was I was afraid to get to a 
point where you can't pull the rabbit out of 
the hat anymore. You're supposed to do 
something that keeps the audience happy 
and excited, and your act can only be so 
long before they get bored with you. 
They've seen what you do. I have to think 
a little differently than most people. I have 
to think as a professional and as a black. 
And one thing I had to do was to walk out 
of this standing up. I had to do that.

In keeping a little of ttiat yellow-bricli road fantasy/our dream of an anti-nuclear 

world will have a chance to be realized. 

If there is a reverence of being in ourselves maybe we will see some reverence tor 

the world itself. 

We must understand the value in the whole earth community of which we are a 

microcosm. We reflect the age and have a chance to live our dream.
