One of the most celebrated party weekends at 
UMass is Halloween, when all the ghouls and 
goblins gather at the Campus Center to join their 
friends in the spirit of Halloween. The costumes vary 
from the very mild (the Three Blind Mice) to the 
very bizarre (would you believe someone having a 
baby as a costume?). This year the violence was 
excessive and unnecessary. Vandalism and damages 
reached an all time high and Campus Center officials 
are reluctant to host the event in the future. 

Pulling allnighters 

The allnighter is a way of life for many stu- 
dents, especially during exam times. Many de- 
voted all night students say if s the best time to 
study, it's usually quiet. A veteran of all nighters 
recommends,"coffee, a break to stretch your legs 
and speed.. .if you can get some.". For many 
students the night ovi'l approach is their main 
study habit.

The UMass men's crew team proved that hard 
work pays off b)' winning the National Cham- 
pionship at the Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia 
this past spring. Although they have not 
achieved varsity status from the Athletic de- 
partment, the comradeship of the team runs high 
and members work out and practice year around. 
The devotion of the individual team members 
has contributed highly to the greatness of UMass 
athletic achievements. 

The Union Program Council (UPC) has grown 
to be one of the most powerful and well run 
groups that work out of the Student Government 
Association, With a growing membership of over 
150 members the group books, contracts and sets 
up the majority of campus concerts. Since its 
official beginning in 1977 UPC has diversified 
and enlarged to its present size. Bringing a wide 
variety of live music to UMass students, UPC has 
booked such acts as Pousette Dart, Southside 
Johny, Hall and Dates, the Kinks, the Grateful 
Dead, Bonnie Raitt, Judy Collins, the Allman 
Brothers, Pat Metheney and Utopia.The Union 
Program Council is one of the greatest prides of 
student involvement.

The University Dancers are a troupe of 
extremely talented and energetic artists. 
In addition to performing on campus, the 
University Dancers tour the New England 
area bringing their joy to others. All of 
them are required to audition and not ail 
of them are dance majors. They rehearse 
strenously and if you've ever been fortun- 
ate enough to attend one of their concerts, 
their hard work is most certainly visible. 

Working Hard 

Being a cheerleader is not always what it's cut out to 
be. As a cheerleader you are obligated to brave all sorts 
of weather arid a variety of temperatures. There are daily 
practice sessions and during football season, a cheer- 
leader sacrifices his or her entire Saturday. There are 
occupational hazards like sprained ankles and torn 
muscles. Smiles can be hard to come by when your team 
is on a losing streak, however a cheerleader has got to 
perform no matter what the score. Just fifteen seconds

Long and Winding Road 

The long and winding road that leads to your door 

will never disappear, I've seen that road before. 

It always leads me here, 

Lead me to your door. 

The wild and windy night that the rain washed away 

has left a pool of tears crying for the day, 

Why leave me standing here. 

Let me know the way. 

Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried. 

Anyway you'll never know the many times I've tried. 

But still they lead me back to the long winding road. 

You left me standing here a long, long time ago. 

Don't leave me waiting here. 

Lead me to your door

The University of Massachusetts, the 
state university of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts, was founded in 1863 
under provisions of the Morrill Act of 
1862. This land grant act endowed 
colleges in every state of the union to 
meet the demand for technical edu- 
cation. The original bill was formed by 
Senator Justin L Morrill of Vermont. It 
provided that public land be assigned 
to the several states and territories, the 
funds from the sale of which were to be 
used to establish and maintain colleges 
of agriculture and mechanical arts. Al- 
though the main objective of such col- 
leges was training in agriculture and 
mechanical arts, they were to include 
other scientific and classical subjects in 
order to promote both the liberal and 
practical education of the industrial 

Massachusetts accepted the provi- 
sions of the Morrill Act in 1863 and 
immediately began to plan for a new 
college. The Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology was already organized, 
and it was decided that instruction in 
mechanical arts should be given there. 
For this reason, the college, when 
founded, was an agricultural school. 
The General Court required that 
$75,000 be raised and presented to the 
trustees by the town in which the 
college was located. Northampton, 
Lexington, Springfield and Amherst 
complied with this request. After much 
discussion Amherst was finally selec- 

ted as the location for the college and a 
310 acre tract of land was purchased. 

Incorporated as Massachusetts Agri- 
culture College in April 1863, the insti- 
tution first opened its doors to 56 
students in 1867 with four faculty 
members and four wooden buildings. 
Admission requirements were: "stu- 
dents to be sixteen years of age, and to 
pass such examinations as is required 
for admission to Normal Schools, and 
such further examination as shall be 
prescribed." The existing departments 
in the first year were: Agriculture and 
Horticulture; Physics, Mathematics 
and Engineering; Natural History; 
Chemistry; Political Economics, Intel- 
lectual Philosophy and Christian Mor- 
als; Comparative Anatomy and Animal 
Physiology, including Veterinary Sur- 
gery and Medicine; Modern Languages 
and Literature; and Physical Education, 
including Military Tactics. 

During its early years, the college 
faced severe financial problems. The 
State Legislature refused to grant an 
annual appropriation, causing the Col- 
lege to accumulate a deficit of $18,000. 
The College began to fall from public 
favor because of its financial straits. The 
deficit was covered by the Legislature 
in 1874, but it did not act to prevent 
further debts. For three years, from 
1874 to 1877, the College sustained its 
credit only by personal endorsement of 
its notes by Trustee William Knowlton. 

The situation did not improve much 

by 1879, by which time a new deficit of 
$32,000 had accumulated. Members of 
the Legislature and the public began to 
suggest that responsibility for the Col- 
lege be given to Amherst College. 
However, the Legislature relented and 
once again covered the debt. The Col- 
lege then instituted strict financial con- 
trols to balance the budget of $24,000. 

The State Legislature began to show 
more support for the College in the 
1800's, appropriating funds for scho- 
larships and new buildings. Income 
from all revenue sources more than 
doubled between 1881 and 1886. As its 
financial condition improved, the Col- 
lege was able to hire more professors 
and broaden its academic offerings, 
particularly in the humanities. 

The College enrolled its first woman 
student in the 1890's although few 
women came in following years, as no 
housing was available for them, and 
because the curriculum led to occupa- 
tions dominated by men. 

The year 1892 saw the College being 
authorized to grant graduate degrees. 
The first two graduate degrees were 
granted in 1896. In 1908 the Graduate 
School was established as a separate 
unit of the institution. 

As the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College entered into the twentieth cen- 
tury, alumni and students began to 
request a broader curriculum, particu- 
larly the establishment of a degree 
program in the Arts. Discussion of the 

of Campus 

curriculum became more active in the 
late 1920's, when a group of alumni and 
students began to petition the Trustees 
to change the name of the College. By 
November of 1930 the Trustees had 
been persuaded to support the change. 
On March 26, 1931, Governor Joseph 
B. Ely signed a bill which made the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College the 
Massachusetts State College. However, 
the bill contained no provisions rede- 
fining the purposes of the education 
offered. By this time enrollment had 
increased to 760, with no more student 
housing available on campus. The 
number of women doubled between 
1925 and 1931, increasing from 100 to 

Feeling that the Massachusetts State 
College had a greater role to fulfill in 
the Commonwealth, students and 
alumni again began to petition for a 
change in the College's focus, this time 
a change to status as a university. The 
drive met with opposition in the State 
Legislature in 1940 and failed. The 
issue was then pushed aside in 1941 
with the onset of World War II. 

However, just as the end of World 
War I had brought more students to 
Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
the end of World War II caused a surge 
of applications. The "GI Bill" gave 
thousands of returning Massachusetts 
servicemen a means to get through 
college. By February of 1946, the Col- 
lege and facilities at Amherst simply 

could not accommodate the volume 
demanded. There had been no buil- 
ding construction and minimal repair 
and replacement of equipment during 
the war. Available resources were bare- 
ly adequate for a college of 1700 

Emergency funds were granted by 
the Legisature for building badly 
needed classroom and living units. The 
College opened a Fort Devens branch 
in 1946 to handle an overflow of 2,800 
veterans. As the clamor for more space 
continued, members of the College 
community realized that this was the 
right time to revive the "University" 
movement. A major drive was 
launched and, based on public support, 
the College became the University of 
Massachusetts on May 6, 1947, when 
Governor Robert A. Bradford signed 
the bill into law. The University en- 
rolled 2,407 students that year, with a 
faculty of 160. The years since 1947 
have been years of rapid growth for the 
University. This growth and the simul- 
taneous increase in the quality of edu- 
cation have been made possible largely 
by the changes that have taken place in 
the system of governmental controls 
that previously hampered academic 
progress. The "Freedom Bill" of 1956 
gave the University authority to ap- 
point properly qualified faculty mem- 
bers at any salary scale (within the 
limits of the budget and of the state 
salary scale) and transferred full con- 

trol over professional personnel poli- 
tics to the Board of Trustees; many 
governmental controls over purchas- 
ing were also transferred to the 

Rapid expansion began for the cam- 
pus in 1960, a year in which the student 
population was 6,495 and a total of 366 
faculty and other academic profession- 
als were employed on campus. In 1970, 
to facilitate the coordination of the 
three growing campuses at Amherst, 
Worcester and Boston, the President's 
Office was moved from Amherst to 
Boston. At the same time, the admin- 
istration of the Amherst campus was 
reorganized and the position of Chan- 
cellor as Principal Administrative Of- 
ficer was created. By this time, in 1970, 
the Amherst Campus enrollment had 
reached 20,462 and the faculty had 
grown to 1,134. 

Currently there are 24,012 students 
enrolled at the Amherst campus, and 
1,464 faculty positions. Students may 
enroll in 94 degree programs at the 
undergraduate level, including 8 two- 
year programs; 60 degree programs are 
offered at the master's level and 45 
programs at the doctoral level. During 
the past fiscal year a total of 5,345 
degrees were conferred: 3,982 at the 
undergraduate level; 196 associate 
degrees from Stockbridge School of 
Agriculture; and 1,167 at the graduate

"Write that down/' the King said to the

The purpose of all higher education is to make people aware of what was and what is; to incite them to probe 
nto what may be. It seeks to teach us to understand, to evaluate and to communicate. 

The new Commission on 
Higher Education in Massa- 
chusetts must reduce the 
size of the public higher edu- 
cation system as it struggles 
with reorganization — but it 
will find major political 
problems along the way. 

"... There will be an 
overcapacity within institu- 
tions for the next two dec- 
ades . . . more institutions 
than necessary," he said. 
"But how do you squeeze 
that capacity and who gets 
squeezed when every insti- 
tution is part of somebody's 
constituency? But they're 
going to have to squeeze." 

Dr Knapp also made the 
following observations: 

— By the year 2000, high- 
er education will need about 
the same capacity as it has 
now. Top state education 
administrators sense that 

the commission sees only 
short-term problems and 
short-term needs. The ques- 
tion is how to mothball suf- 
ficient capacity to accommo- 
date the projected needs of 
20 years hence. 

— Institutions of higher 
education must prepare for a 
different student body dur- 
ing the next two decades — 
disadvantaged, Hispanics 
and blacks. The question is 
whether colleges and univer- 
sities will be able to "pro- 
vide opportunities for those 
people." Few officials are 
facing up to the facts. 

— Retraining adults, such 
as some middle-aged people 
with doctorates no longer 
worth much in the job mar- 
ket, will be a major focus. 

— How to maintain qual- 
ity education and campus fa- 
cilities in the face of infla- 

tion is a dramatic struggle. 
Physical plant and lands- 
caping deterioration at 

Blueprint for higher education in the 80's 

UMass/Amherst are signifi- 
cant. "We're going to have to 
do something about it," Dr. 
Knapp said. 

— Public schools are fail- 
ing students. Higher educa- 
tion institutions will have to 
work more closely with pub- 
lic schools. If public schools 
don't shape up, particularly 
in educating the disadvan- 
taged and minority students, 
then the university may 
have to lower its admission 
standards and do the job it- 

— Social, technological 
and ecological problems 
abound. No way has yet 
been found to mobilize the 
university's resources to 
solve these problems. 

Reorganization of higher 
education in Massachusetts 
is talked about annually. Re- 
ports are made, but nothing 

happens. Something must 
be done about it. 

— A UMass president op- 
erates in a highly charged 
atmosphere. "I've never seen 
a culture where there are so 
many politicians — or pseu- 
do politicians," said Dr. 
Knapp. "There is so much 
media exposure and 5 mil- 
lion influence brokers ..." 

— Unless there is a major 
recession that lasts a decade, 
the need for college-trained 
people will continue in order 
to satisfy the demand of 
business and industry. 

Dr. Knapp noted that the 
state has five boards of 
trustees for public higher 
education, more than any 
other state, and "there is no 
coordination . . . . " 

However, he found draw- 
backs to a super board for all 
segments because "it would 

tend to lead to diminished 
quality — and it would like- 
ly become a highly political 

He also cited the lack of 
coordination between public 
and private higher educa- 
tion in Massachusetts as a 
significant problem. 

"The real question of reor- 
ganization is how we use our 
very limited dollars," he 
said. "Both public and pri- 
vate institutions must be 
looked at very hard." 

In response to questions, 
Dr. Knapp noted the univer- 
sity's tremendous building 
program during the last 20 

"When you build fast and 
in large numbers, you run 
into difficulties," he said. 
"And that's what the state 
did for the last 20 years at 

The Chancellor is the chief execu- 
tive officer of the campus and is 
responsible for carrying out policies 
and procedures as established by 
the Board of Trustees and the Uni- 
versity President. Additionally, the 
Chancellor is responsible for the 
establishment of long-range aca- 
demic and fiscal plans and person- 
nel policies; coordination of campus 
operations and policies, including 
budget development and allocation; 
academic and administrative pro- 
gram review; and liaison with cam- 
pus governing units, the President's 
Office, and other external agencies. 

Three members of the Chancel- 
lor's immediate staff hold key posi- 
tions within the Campus Adminis- 
tration: The Legal Counsel is the 
chief legal officer and is responsible 
for providing legal counsel to the 
Chancellor, other administrative of- 
ficers, academic departments, and 
individual employees at the 

Amherst Campus on matters per- 
taining to University business. The 
Legal Counsel represents the Uni- 
versity and the Commonwealth as 
special Assistant Attorney General 
and also acts as liaison between 
general University Council and the 

The Associate to the Chancellor 
is responsible for adminstering the 
collective bargaining contract with 
the faculty and librarians, acting as 
the Chancellor's designee in hear- 
ing contract grievances and serving 
as the Chancellor's representative 
in matters affecting the Faculty Sen- 
ate or individual faculty members. 

The Division of Development and 
Community Relations is responsi- 
ble for communicating a positive 
image of the Amherst Campus both 
externally and internally and for the 
development of comprehensive 
community relations programs. In 
carrying out these duties, the Div- 

ision has the responsibility of assist- 
ing the University in gaining recog- 
nition as a vital resource for Wes- 
tern Massachusetts, in social, eco- 
nomic and cultural affairs, initiating 
programs and activities that will en- 
able the University to work closely 
with the business and industrial 
segments of the community, and 
maintaining relations with the alum- 
ni and other external constituents. 
Also the Division is responsible for 
the coordination of alumni relations, 
public events, special programs, 
and for. public information (news 
media and publications). It estab- 
lishes policies for programs design- 
ed to increase funds flowing to the 
Amherst Campus through contacts 
with individuals, corporations and 
foundations. Offices within the Div- 
ision are: Alumni Affairs, Community 
Relations, Public Affairs, Develop- 
ment, Publications and the Photo 

I came to the campus with a 
good impression of the overall 
quality of this University. What I 
have found in the first few weeks 
has exceeded even my most opti- 
mistic expectations. Wherever I 
have gone, I have found original 
and productive people involved in 
stimulating and challenging en- 
deavors. I have found a strong and 
dedicated faculty and I have 
found considerable evidence that 
most of that faculty possesses in 
large measure values that I respect 
most in others and which we need 
to cultivate also in our students; 
namely, compassion, commit- 
ment, and a sense of responsibil- 
ity. You are better than you think! 

I have found an involved stu- 
dent body, which in many ways 
perhaps does not realize how im- 
pressive it is. I was delighted to 
learn from recent studies that ap- 
proximately three-fourths of our 
students are satisfied or very satis- 
fied with their experience at the 
University, and in most respects 
regard their academic and other 
experiences here about as highly 
as do students in Amherst, Hamp- 
shire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith 
Colleges. This response of our stu- 
dents is of great credit to our fac- 
ulty, who obviously take their 
teaching responsibilities seriously. 

I have found the structure of the 
University to be functional and 
uncluttered, with relatively little 
duplication or overlapping en- 
deavors. You have avoided the ex- 
treme of a narrow concentration 
on a few selected areas and the 
equally troublesome unbounded 
pursuit of every interest ever 
known to mankind. 

I am not yet prepared to be spe- 
cific in identifying those aspects of 
the University where improve- 
ment is desirable. Quite clearly 
the strains of rapid growth have 
left some unevenness of quality 
which will demand attention. 
There are two points, however, on 
which I want to be specific be- 
cause they represent quantitative 
or perhaps attitudinal differences 
between this University and the 
more prestigious Land Grant Uni- 
versities in the country. These in- 
stitutions are all characterized by 
more intensive research and other 
creative efforts and by more com- 
prehensive outreach programs. In- 
quiry is the wellspring of all the 
learning that universities must 
transmit and of the ultimate prac- 
tical benefits that come from its 
application. More fully developed 
outreach programs place the cam- 
pus in direct contact with virtual- 
ly every group in the community. 

and have provided those institu- 
tions with their enthusiastic sup- 
porting constituencies. I shall re- 
turn to these themes a little later. 
I am in no sense dismayed by 
whatever problems confront us. 
To an overwhelming extent they 
are not unique to this Common- 
wealth. They represent the prob- 
lems which confront public higher 
education nationally. It is true 
that the level of state support is 
somewhat inadequate, but our 
budget is lean, not poor. We need 
to be more precise in identifying 
our priorities and supporting 
them, and shall of course try to do 
our best to make a persuasive case 
for increased funding. There is no 
doubt that inflation has seriously 
eroded our purchasing power and 
thus our ability to maintain and 
build a high quality institution. 
However, just as critical as the lev- 
el of support is the manner in 
which we are hamstrung by tight 
restrictions on the internal man- 
agement of funds. This weakens 
our ability to cope creatively with 
our problems. I am especially dis- 
tressed over the serious limita- 
tions on top salaries. Exceptional 
performance deserves outstanding 
rewards. A great university is built 
by bringing together the highest 
quality people to accomplish its 

My first impressions and confessions. 

various missions; it is kept great 
by rewarding excellence and cre- 
ativity; in a word, merit. I believe 
these problems, and others, can be 
confronted constructively and 
that the University can come to 
realize its full potential. 

Before I address the subject of 
our future directions, I would like 
to expand briefly on my own view 
of academic leadership. The qual- 
ity of any university depends most 
of all on the individuality of each 
of its members — faculty, staff 
and students. Yet the university's 
ultimate success in pushing for- 
ward the frontiers of knowledge 
and in contributing to the solution 
of the problems which confront 
society also rests on its ability to 
engage those talented individuals 
in collective institutional goals 
and aspirations. This is the para- 
dox which underlies the dual roles 
of the academic leader. On the one 
hand we must attract and nurture 
individuals of talent and fan the 
spark of their individuality; on the 
other, we must bring those indivi- 
duals to identify with institutional 
goals and rally them around com- 
mon purposes. 

In my view this calls for aca- 
demic leaders to pay particular at- 
tention to four matters. First, it is 
essential to assure that the Uni- 
versity attracts, retains, and nu- 

tures individuals of talent in all of 
its endeavors of research, teach- 
ing, and public service. This re- 
quires the most careful and consis- 
tent attention to quality in the re- 
cruitment, appointment, promo- 
tion, and reward of faculty and 
staff. It also requires the identifi- 
cation of potential leaders and the 
provision of opportunities for 
them to develop their skill so that 
future leadership is assured. Sec- 
ond, it is essential to create the 
favorable climate which high 
quality research, teaching, and 
public service require. This de- 
mands the reduction of red tape, 
the anticipation of developments 
in new and existing fields, and an 
absolute insistence on quality per- 
formance as a requisite for the al- 
location of resources to indivi- 
duals as well as units. Third, it 
requires thoughtful and creative 
institutional development and al- 
location of resources. No institu- 
tion can do everything. It is neces- 
sary to identify institutional 
priorities with care, to develop 
well-understood criteria and pro- 
cedures for allocating resources, to 
reduce redundancies and consoli- 
date activities where savings can 
be attained. We must develop re- 
alistic expectations, and reach an 
institution-wide consensus that 
our decisions are reasonable. 

Fourth, our leaders must give at- 
tention to fund raising. In this 
area the leader must act as a cata- 
lyst. The best assurance for con- 
tinued external support, particu- 
larly federal support, is a produc- 
tive faculty, but that faculty must 
be given the guidance, the assis- 
tance, and the urging that is re- 
quired to obtain the funds. In my 
opinion these are the primary du- 
ties of academic leadership at all 
levels in the institution, beginning 
at the department level. I shall 
certainly give them priority in my 
role as Chancellor. 

Now let me turn to the objec- 
tives to which my leadership will 
be directed. First, it is essential 
that we stop thinking about the 
1960s and devote our attention to 
the 1980s and the remainder of 
this century. I have a feeling that 
in Amherst, as everywhere in aca- 
deme, too many people are look- 
ing backward with nostalgia to the 
period of rapid growth, rather 
than forward with expectation to 
the challenges of the future. At 
the very least, we must accept the 
changes in our environment and 
learn to live within whatever 
means we can achieve. We must 
ready ourselves for the new de- 
mands and demography of the 
1980s, and we have little time to 
do this.

source Management carries the re- 
sponsibility for residence hall oper- 
ations and maintenance. It coordin- 
ates housing, assignments to dorm- 
itories, purchasing, inventory, re- 
pairs, physical modifications, and 
renovations of residence hall struc- 
tures. The Residential Resource 
Management Office and the Com- 
munity Development Center share 
the responsibility for the total oper- 
ation of the University's 1 1 ,OC)0-bed

ating the efforts of these divisions,the 
Vice Chancellor is responsible for de- 
veloping and implementing policies, 
planning the efficient use of resources 
and assuring compliance with applic- 
able regulations. 

The Division of Administrative Ser- 
vices provides the services of parking, 
transit, and communications for the 
Amherst Campus. The Parking Office 
coordinates the utilization of the ga- 
rage and 90 acres of surface parking. 
The transit system offers transporta- 
tion both within the campus and to the 
adjacent communities of Amherst, Bel- 
chertown, Sunderland and South 
Deerfield. Communication services co- 
ordinated within this division include 
duplicating, mail and telephone. 

The Division of Auxiliary Services is 
composed of the Campus Center, Con- 
ference Services and Food Services. 
The Campus Center serves as a cen- 
tralized meeting place that offers a 
variety of amenities. Containing sixty 
meeting rooms and two auditoriums, 
the Campus Center is used extensively 
for meetings and conferences hosted 
by Faculty, students, administrators, 
community members and external or- 
ganizations. Over one hundred rooms 
are available for overnight accommo- 
dations. Food service can be obtained 
in the Center's five restaurants or from 
a central catering department. Retail 
operations include the University 
Store, Print Shop, News and Sweet 
Shop, Games and Amusement area 
and a Post Office. The Department of 
Conference Services is concerned with 
planning, coordinating and maximiz- 
ing the use of campus facilities for 
conferences. It not only attends to 
needs of conference sponsors and par- 

ticipants, but also exerts marketing ef- 
forts to attract new clients to the 
Campus. The primary objective of the 
Department of Food Services is to pro- 
vide a well-balanced comprehensive 
meal plan that is tailored particularly to 
the needs of residential students. In 
addition to providing basic meals, this 
Department operates three snack bars, 
three "mini-markets" and a catering 

The primary purpose of Facilities 
Planning is to plan improvements of 
the buildings and the campus land- 
scaping. Specific functions include the 
development of capital outlay plans, 
the initial implementation of capital 
outlay projects and the planning for 
landscape improvements. 

The Division of Financial Affairs pro- 
vides accounting, procurement, and 
collection and coordination of audit 
services for the Campus. It develops 
and implements financial management 
and ensures compliance with regula- 
tions governing the expenditure of

performs financial transactions, main- 
tains accounting records, disseminates 
accounting reports and coordinates in- 
ternal auditing functions. Procurement 
coordinates the purchasing of mater- 
ials and services, maintains accounting 
records, disseminates accounting re- 
ports and coordinates internal auditing 

The Office of Grants and Contracts 
Administration is responsible for pre- 
award and post-award administration 
of grants and contracts and for pro- 
viding related support services to the 
faculty. The development of activities 
for locating funding sources is coordin- 
ated by the Graduate Dean's Office 
within the area of Academic Affairs. 
The Office of Grants and Contracts 
Administration ensures that internal 
and external regulations pertaining to

lection and dissemination of statistics 
on personnel demographics, payroll 
projec-tions and personnel operating 
budgets. The Department of Em- 
ployee/Labor Relations maintains a li- 
aison with three major classified em- 
ployee unions, as well as individual 
employees. Involved with local, state 
and national levels of unions, this de- 
partment participates in collective bar- 
gaining, administers contracts, and 
processes union grievances. Addition- 
ally, it serves as a resource for the 
discussion and resolution of work re- 
lated programs. However, this office is 
not involved in any negotiations with 
the faculty collective bargaining unit, 
which are handled directly through the 
Chancellor's Office. 

The Physical Plant Division is re- 
sponsible for planning, constructing, 
maintaining and operating the physical 
facilities at the Campus and outlying 
research stations. These facilities in- 
clude building structures, roads, walks,

school and departmental academic 
plans and budgets, appointments, 
promotions, and tenure recommen- 
dations; proposals for new academ- 
ic programs; and suggestions and 
plans to increases the usefulness of 
the University in outreach activities 
and innovative service programs. 

"At this level of administra- 
tion you're mostly dealing with 
money. You can't run the insti- 
tution without it/' he says. 

He speaks slowly, chuckling 
occaisionally as he recounts his 
own history. He came to UMass 
seven years ago after teaching 
English full-time at the Univer- 
sity of Colorado. A tenured pro- 
fessor at UMass, he has held 
administrative positions since 

arriving here as associate prov- 
ost, teaching perhaps one course 
a semester. 

Does he still consider himself 
a member of the faculty? "Oh, 
yes," he answers without hesitat- 

He will be glad to get back to 
his position as Dean of Fine Arts 
and Humanities. "You get iso- 
lated," he says, from the faculty, 
the research, the students. 

"I've had a funny career as an 
administrator. Unlike a good 
many deans I've had campus- 
wide experience," he says refer- 
ring to his stint as associate pro- 
vost. After serving more than 
two years as provost, his atti- 
tudes toward University admini- 
stration have "not really 

In a recent interview, Allen 
talked about UMass, how the 

l\[t fmosl 

University currently operates, 
some of its problems, and what 
lies ahead. 

"We're in for some difficult 
years — if s an economic fact of 
life," he says as he talks about 
sections of Spanish that were 
cancelled and later rescheduled 
at the start of this semester. 

UMass currently appears to be 
in between the proverbial rock 
and a hard place, because, says 
the highest ranking academic of- 
ficial on campus, "things are go- 
ing to get worse." 

The problem stems from bud- 
get allocation methods. Courses 
are listed for preregistration, but 
the University does not know 
what its allocation is until the 
end of January, this year two 
days before the classes were set 
to begin. 

"At this particular public uni- 
versity we are treated by the 
state almost like other state 

agencies. You have to make con- 
tractual commitments in ad- 
vance, and then suddenly, we 
get a bad budget." "But you've 
got to offer required courses," 
Allen says, yet the UMass budget 
shrinks even as it grows. 

"All the departments will be 
affected," by budget cuts this 
year. "We would try to protect 
our high priority units," he says. 

Double-digit inflation has also 
forced a "gradual shift in enroll- 
ments and pressures from liberal 
arts to more career-oriented stu- 
dies," he says. 

"There's been a growth in en- 
gineering and a corresponding 
drop in disciplines such as Eng- 
lish, history - although journal- 
ism has become more popular. 
If s more career oriented." 

And what of state industry's 
involvement with the Univer- 

sity? The engineering school re- 
cently began a drive to raise $5.5 
million from private industry. 
"The theory of the capital fund 
drive isl:hat it will provide added 
resources to make it less neces- 
sary to transfer resources from 
the other departments," he said. 
The money will go to the de- 
partment that does research for 
various companies, he said. 

When the fund drive first star- 
ted it was purely engineering - 
since then natural sciences have 
become involved. I don't think it 
will effect fine arts and humanit- 
ies or the social sciences. We've 
had a series of very tight budgets 
and the enrollment patterns 
have shifted away from those 
areas," he said, leaving the Uni- 
versity to expand in more de- 
manded disciplines. 

The shift is reflected in the 
declining number of faculty in 
the fine arts and humanities. The 

iiLimbor of faculty has declined 
from 406 in 1973 to 375 cur- 

Because of declining enroll- 
ments in these departments, the 
student-faculty ratio has not 

"Ours is about 17, or 16 over- 
all (students to faculty)," Allen 
says, comparing it to Amherst 
College's 12 to 1 ratio. "I'd say 
we're about average nationally 
to similar universities this size." 
But, he cautions, those are aver- 
ages. "You can't just compare. 
Some of the disciplines require a 
(higher number of faculty to stu- 
dents than others." Nursing is at 
about 3 or 4 to 1 while journalis- 
tic studies is 20 to 1. He says the 
social sciences and business 
courses have the highest num- 
ber of students per faculty. 

Sheer economics forces facul- 

it's recognition," he says. "I don't 
think the quality of education 
will suffer — everybody's in the 
same boat. There are very few 
institutions that have enough 
money to go out and raid other 

Allen says the opportunities 
for scientific research are far bet- 
ter at a large school such as 
UMass than at smaller places. 
And publishing and research are 
"particularly important" in 
achieving recognition in the sci- 

But what about the students 
here? Are they "anti-intellect- 
ual" as a recent self-study once 

"Students have changed," he 
says. "During the 1960's stu- 
dents to a large extent became 
seemingly uninterested in jobs." 
Then, "a period of high em- 

I'he gap between professors 
^\^d students, between class- 
room experience and the dor- 
niilory or apartment "is probab- 
ly a problem... We (deans and 
department heads) talk about

siderable concern to the chan- 
cel lor.... Better communication," 
he says, is the key to combatting 

He brings up the subject of 
sexual harrassment. "You get 
rumors, you get reports, but you 
have to get people to come out in 
the open." Reporting of this "is 
getting better, he said, but "I 
think we're going to have to 
develop some kind of procedure 
for dealing with this." He says

ty unions to negotiate for con- 
tracts that provide healthy salary 
increases, Allen said. "Even so, if 
they get a 10 percent salary in- 
crease, it's probably been re- 
duced to 7 percent after taxes," 
he said. "We're starting negotia- 
tions again soon. It doesn't exact- 
ly bring out the best in anyone." 

Allen says "if s too early to say 
what the effect in the long run 
will be" of faculty unionization 
on education. The faculty organ- 
ized for the first time in 1977. 
Does he ever feel torn between 
his role as a faculty member and 
administrator? "Yes." 

Another effect money, and 
perhaps prestige, has on aca- 
demic life at UMass is the loss of 
professors. "We're beginning to 
lose a few to institutions that 
offer more money, better oppor- 
tunities for research, or more 
prestigious departments. "When 
we lose people to better places. 

ployment: if you needed money, 
you went out and got a job. 
There were plenty of jobs avail- 
able." Now, high unemploy- 
ment makes job security more 
competitive and a college diplo- 
ma more a must, he said. 

.\s a result of the changing 
demands, "there has been grade 
inflation," he says, although, 
"there's been less of it in the 
sciences." "Engineers are the 
St if test markers." 

"People used to grade more 
on a strict bell curve, which 
meant not as many A's were 
given out." 

How would UMies fare at 
other, more competitive 

schools? "Within the same field, 
N'ou'd get similar grades. People 
move around and they take their 
ideas about grades with them." 
Which brings us to the image of 
UMass and its effect on aca- 

ment Association (SCERA) has 
done on this has been helpful. 
"It's the kind of behavior thaf s 
difficult to pinpoint. There are 
usually no witnesses. One per- 
son says one thing, one says 

What does a provost do if this 
can be proven? "If it's a case of 
grades and some kind of coer- 
cion, I'd start dismissal proceed- 
ings. That's the only thing we can 
do. "I don t think we have (dis- 
missed anyone for that reason) 
since I've been here." 

With a PhD in English, Allen, 
the father of five children whose 
ages range from 19 to 37 years 
old, says "I wasn't a serious stu- 
dent when I first started." He 
smiles. He "might" consider re- 
turning to teaching and doesn't 
know when he'll retire. He's 60, 
"but you don't have to retire 

The Class of 1980. Is there a 
difference? Or is 1980 a com- 
mencement clone of 1975 or 
1965 or 1960? Is there any- 
thing which really character- 
izes the UMass graduates as 
the 70's become the 80's? I 
think there is and in retrospect 
I enjoyed it. 

As Dean of Students, a certi- 
fied Whitmore bureaucrat, and 
as one of the few who can re- 
member UMass as a campus of 
three thousand with fewer 
than one third of those wom- 
en, I'd like to accept the Index 

ieati of Itudmts 

challenge and offer one point 
of view. First the disclaimers; 
my comments about the class 
of 1980 are purely subjective 
with no reference whatever to 
any tangible evidence. They 
are based on four years of 
working with some members 
of your class and my recollec- 
tions of similar experiences 
with some of your parents. 
Yes, the Class of 1980 has more 
than a few graduates whose 
parents were undergraduates 
in the fifties. The second com- 

ment refers to unjustifiable 
generalizations I intend to 
make about a class which is di- 
verse in background and aspi- 

In many ways your class 
marked a final break with tur- 
bulent late 60's and early 70's. 
You were the end of the "baby 
boom". From 1948 to 1960 the 
post World War II birth wave 
produced a surge of youth 
which strained the school sys- 
tems and exploded its suburbs. 
When you entered first grade 

in 1965 we were as a university 
and as a society trying to ac- 
commodate the change pro- 
duced by a youth generation. 
And changes there were at 
UMass, Amherst. First a dou- 
bling in size in the '60's and 
then while you were in fifth or 
sixth grade coed dorms arrived 
and 7PM curfews for freshman 
women disappeared. Then the 
range and frustration generat- 
ed by Viet Nam and Kent 
State which resulted in its 
strike and building takeovers 

William Field 

which brought the 1972 aca- 
demic year to an early close. 
But even this most dramatic 
form of student action took 
place when you were in eighth 
grade and when you arrived on 
campus it really became a dif- 
ferent place. 

At UMass you were as indi- 
viduals satisfying to work 
with. You were relaxed skep- 
tics, unwilling to follow easily 
the political or social leaders 
who had exerted such strong 
influence on preceeding stu- 

dent generations. Few mem- 
bers of this class accepted Uni- 
versity administrators as wise 
or authoritative because of 
their titles or student politi- 
cians as prophets by self proc- 
lamation. The class members I 
got to know were open and 
thoughtful and willing to dis- 
cuss issues with me with less 
stridency or certainty than 
characterized earlier classes. 
In the fifties students accepted 
authorities publically while 
minimizing any real communi- 

cation with rather stylized re- 
sponses. In the late 60's and 
early 70's the public stance of 
students was to reject without 
hearing any words spoken by 
someone over thirty. The Class 
of 1980 represents a new col- 
lege era at UMass, perhaps 
more cautious, less willing to 
commit, and doubtful of those 
who propose sweeping solu- 
tions to complex problems. In 
short, I believe you were better 
learners, more satisfying stu- 
dents, and I wish you well. 

Dean Kring 

Dean James Kring came to the Univer- 
sity in 1977 as a professor and head of the 
UMass Department of Entomology and is 
now Acting Dean and Director of the 
College of Food and Natural Resources. 

"I really wear three hats, that is, not ony 
am I Acting Dean of this college but I 
direct the Massachusetts Agricultural Ex- 
periment Station and the Cooperative 
Extension Service as well," exclaimed 
Dean Kring. 

Agricultural research is conducted at 
the Massachusetts Agricultural Experi- 
ment Station while the Cooperative Ex- 
tension Service simply forwards the re- 
sults of the research to the consumer. 

"Agriculture is the largest industry in 
the United States. More people and 
money are tied up in it than any other 
industry. We produce an overabundance 
of grain enabling us to supply other coun- 
tries with it, thus contributing a great deal 
to our balance of payment," explained 
Dean Kring. ^ 

A most integral part of the College ol 
Food and Natural Resources is the Stock- 
bridge School of Agriculture, founded in 
1918. There are currently 525 students 
enrolled in Stockbridge, taking up pro- 
grams such as Animal Science and Turf 

"Stockbridge is a two-year program in 
which graduates receive the Associate of 
Science degree. We also have two depart- 
ments off-campus, the Cranberry Station 
in East Wareham and the Suburban Ex- 
periment Station in Waltham where we 
conduct research on flowers, vegetables 
and many greenhouse crops," said Dean 

When asked if he felt any major prob- 
lems existed at UMass, Dean King replied, 
"I think the biggest problem is the failure 
of people to realize how good this univer- 
sity is! The press only seems to pick up the 
negative aspects of the school when actu- 
ally, there are so many positive things 

"My faculty and research people are 
doing excellent things — I'd like to gener- 
ate some positive press. Because we are 
the largest state university in Massachu- 
setts, the taxpayers think we are misusing 
their hard-earned dollars when, in fact, it 
is quite the contrary," Dean Kring said. 

Incidentally, Dean Kring's field of spe- 
cialization is entomology, the study of 
insects, and he is a member and past 
president of several entomological soci- 
eties. Lastly, Dean James Kring is one 
strong example of the "positive things 
happening" here at UMass. 

Dean Byron 

Dean Frederick Byron: "The total num- 
ber of students majoring in Departments 
in Natural Sciences and Mathematics is 
about 1450. Most of the students will go 
on to graduate school and concentrate 
their studies in a related field. Ours is a 
very professionally oriented school in 
which students seek out professional 

Frederick William Byron, Dean of the 
Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathe- 
matics, graduated in 1959 from Harvard 
and received his Ph.D. from Columbia 
University. This is his first year as Dean of 
the College. 

"Our school has a split mission; that is, 
not only do we teach the 1450 student 
majors, but there are more and more 
fields requiring some kind of science 
training. Thus, we service a very large 
population of the university in complet- 
ing their requirements," explained Dean 

When asked about the much publicized 
language requirement. Dean Byron said, 
"In today's world, it is foolish for a student 
not to acquire some type of foreign lan- 
guage culture, but it is difficult to force a 
student. But I do think that high school is 
the best place to encourage this sort of 
thing. I'm not sure whether at this level if s 
best to have a language requirement." 

Regarding the pass/ fail option: "I'm not 
opposed to it. Of course, if s inappropriate 
for students to abuse the priviledge, but in 
satisfying distribution requirements, I 
think if s o.k. A highly motivated student 
can grab these opportunities in a most 
beneficial manner. With the pass/fail op- 
tion, one might take a course that he or she 
ordinarily wouldn't." 

When asked about problems here at the 
university. Dean Byron felt that the major 
problem right now is the economic situa- 
tion. He expressed concern regarding the 
quantity of professors within the college. 

the number of laboratories, and the over- 
all supply of educational resources made 
available to UMass. Besides all that, he 
indicated that salary demands are vir- 
tually impossible to keep up with. 

"But there are excellent advantages to a 
school this large. We have an enormous 
number of options that no small school 
can match — UMass is much like the real 
world. Our problems here are no different 
than those of other universities our size," 
Dean Byron said. 

Dean Byron's research specialization is 
"Scattering Theory and Atomic Physics" 
but he also likes to play tennis and attend 
concerts and the theater. He has a vast 
number of publications covering topics 
such as "Multiple Ionization Processes In 
Helium," "Collision Quenching of Met- 
astable Hydrogen Atoms," and "Eikowal

Four interviews 
by Robert Cargill 

Dean Nolan 

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Dean Richard 
Nolan of the College of Humanities and 
Fine Arts came to UMass in 1966 to teach 
literature and psychology, having grad- 
uated from Emory University Medical 
School and receiving his doctorate in 
English at Columbia University. Outspo- 
ken and very interesting. Dean Nolan had 
comments on various topics such as 
bringing back F.D.R. as president and his 
fanatical interest in golf. And naturally, we 
talked about the university. 

Dean Nolan: "Our college is the biggest 
unit on campus. Approximately 5000 stu- 
dents, some 20% of the student body, pass 
through this unit each and every semes- 
ter. The art department even turns away 
students simply because they haven't the 
room in the classrooms. You'll find that 
history, art, and English are some of the 
most popular courses on this campus." 

When asked about the controversial 
foreign language requirement, of which 
Dean Nolan supports, he replied: 

"As a nation, we are culturally illiterate, 
so there is a very practical purpose in 
taking a language. A student will graduate 
with at least a basic knowledge of world 
culture, thus the benefits of a liberal arts 
education. We must keep in mind that this 
is a liberal arts university and our students 
should be graduating with newly-disco- 
vered information, not material that they 
already knew." 

"This idea of pass/fail courses and no 
requirements is an outgrowth of the six- 
ties. In that decade, students pleaded for a 
"relevant" education. But relevance isn't 
always practical." 

"Why learn material which you've al- 
ready learned? The whole idea of edu- 
cation is to learn to do what you're most 
uncomfortable doing. It's good to have 
required courses. A student develops 
more than a sense of discipline; if s self- 
growth," Dean Nolan said. 

The Dean added that when he first 
came here, there were a lot of required 
courses, the kind "the Ivy League schools 
are restoring." In fact, he plans on teach- 
ing a required one year course in Western 
Culture, which he says would give the 
students an education thaf s more mean- 
ingfully structured and one which "they 
would probably like." 

"I dislike the ZooMass reputation! 
There's got to be a restoration of genuine 
healthful contact outside of the classroom 
between student and teacher," Dean 
Nolan concluded. 

Besides being an advocate of the restor- 
ation of required courses. Dean Richard 
Nolan is also an avid UMass football fan, 
and regularly exercises, playing golf, 
raquetball, and jogging. 

Dean Bischoff 

Dean David Bischoff of the School of 
Physical Education: 

"UMass has a great reputation in phys- 
ical education. In fact, in a recently con- 
ducted survey, we ranked seventh in the 
entire country. That's fairly impressive!" 

Dean Bischoff has been at UMass since 
1957 and is probably responsible for 
much of the Physical Education depart- 
ment's success. He came to UMass after 
receiving his Ph.D. at Penn. State and has 
been teaching and administrating phys- 
ical education since. 

"There are approximately 100 students 
per academic year who major in P.E. and 
some 30-40 graduate students. Most of the 
undergraduates do go on to graduate 
school and have a high rate of success in 
getting teaching/coaching jobs,"stated 
Dean Bischoff 

He went on to describe the three major 
thrusts within the physical education 
major's program: 1) the professional pre- 
paration which involves teaching physical 
education and coaching; 2) sports studies 
and management; and 3) exercise science. 

"Back when Phys. Ed. was a require- 
ment, we weren't really sensitive to the 
students' desires, that is, many of our 
courses were merely conventional. But 
now we offer courses such as scuba diving 
and archery, and in fact, we have to turn 
away some 1000 students per year. Some 
of the courses are so popular, we just can't 
accomodate everyone," said the Dean. 

"The best decision we ever made was to 
make Phys. Ed. optional. The only stu- 
dents we teach now are the ones who are 
thoroughly interested. Besides, why force 
students who have already had P.E. 
through High School to participate in 
college?" asked he. 

On top of this, one must keep in mind 
that the P.E. department also runs the very 
popular intramural program. 

"Our sports program is one of the 
largest and definitely most successful in 
the country. But we do need additional 
facilities in which to practice." said Dean 

Dean Bischoff then added, "Increased 
facilities would mean much more student 
participation which might even curb the 
amount of vandalism and other such 
problems on campus." 

In concluding. Dean Bischoff took pride 
in calling his P.E. department "a happy 
place, where one can have a good time 
staying in shape." 

In Depth Interview: 
Dr. George Odiorne 

School of Business, 
Management professor 

"I luivc tniis^ht AiiiLricnii luaiin^oueiit 
the uicn of MBO - 80% of the top 1000 
corporiitioiis now use MBO, 50% of nil 
hospitnlf use it mid 38 of our 50 states are 
uuvia^ed hy ohjeetives. However, Massa- 
chusetts is not one of them." 

One of the drastic changes of the 
1970's in student's educational 
goals has been the shift towards an 
education in business. With a 
tightening job market and a bleak 
outlook for students with liberal 
arts degrees, many students have 
channeled their academic efforts 
toward the "professional schools". 

Realizing the demand for stu- 
dents with a degree in business 
administration there has been a 
marked increase in the enrollment 
of SBA students here at UMass. In 
addition students not enrolled in 
the School of Business but who 
were interested in having a busi- 
ness background, began to sign up 
for courses in the different de- 
partments of the school. 

One highly acclaimed course has 
been the introductory manage- 
ment class, 301. With a semester 
enrollment of 600 students; Man- 
agement 301 has a unique format, a 
marked difference in the subject 
matter presented and a distinctive 
professor behind it all. 

Dr. George Odiorne has been at 
the University of Massachusetts 
since 1974. He is a former Dean of 
the School of Business and has 
designed Management 301 into a 
course that perpetuates the learn- 
ing process of students. Prior to 
coming to UMass he was the Dean 
at the College of Business at Uni- 
versity of Utah for five years. Pre- 
viously he was Director of the 
Bureau of Industrial Relations at 
the University of Michigan for ten 
years. He has also taught manage- 
ment and economics at Rutgers 
and New York University. 

His business experience has in- 
cluded associations with General 
Mills, Inc.; American Management 
Association; and American Can 
Company. He is reputable for his 
consulting work for many major 
American corporations. 

A native of the Commonwealth 
he graduated from Lowell High 
School in 1937. He received his 
Bachelor's degree from Rutgers in 
1948 and went on to do his grad- 
uate work at New York University. 

June Kokturk of the INDEX staff 
spent a Saturday morning with Dr. 
Odiorne to find out more about the 
man behind the course that touch- 
es some 1200 students a year. 
INDEX: You are a man of many 
accomplishments. What do you 
feel is the biggest accomplishment 
of your career? 

ODIORNE: Writing 14 books that 
have all centered around a man- 
agement theme. To me writing is a 
vehicle for teaching, an aim of 
communication. I have centered 
my writing around MBO because it 
is going to make the world work, it 
is systematic while at the same time 
it is humanistic. I have taught amer- 
ican management the idea of MBO 
- 80% of the top 1,000 corporations 
now use MBO, 50% of all hospitals 
use it and 38 of our 50 states are 
managed by objectives. However, 
Massachusetts is not one of them. 

I also consult for companies and 
have made a million speeches 
about MBO. 

INDEX: If you were asked to 
consult for UMass, what would you 

ODIORNE: First of all, the Univer- 
sity should begin by defining its 
short and long term objectives in 
greater detail and care. Then they 
should choose better, more able 
people to manage it - the Univer- 
sity has a tendency to hire great 
scholars and throw them into man- 
agement positions. This ends up 
with a lot of people getting on-the- 
job training, which is the most 
costly of any type of job training 
program. The University is not run 
systematically and it tends to be 
dehumanizing; it treats people, not 
just students either, like numbers. 

INDEX: What has caused the trend 
toward a business-oriented edu- 

ODIORNE: Student objectives 
have changed, they want jobs. Bus- 
iness occupations hire well, so the 
trend is a natural occurence, stu- 
dents are more job oriented. 
INDEX: When and what were the 
biggest changes at colleges and 
universities during the 1970's? 
ODIORNE: Between 1965 and 
1972 was when the most radical 
changes took place. It was right 
after a very clean cut period when 
college students were in college to 
get jobs. Then there was Viet Nam, 
racial tension in cities, the students 
who graduated between 1965 and 
1972 were a unique breed; they are 
the ones now staffing groups such 
as the Clamshell Alliance. After 
1972 the campuses became much 
more quiet - with an emphasis on a 
classroom education. However the 
impacts of the late 60's are still felt 
in three major areas. The first is 
government controls in business. 
Secondly, a trend towards human- 
istic management. And thirdly, the 
influence of the new social values 
that stemmed from that time per- 
iod, such as women's rights, eco- 
nomic stability and job security. 

This trend is felt here at UMass 
as the Schools of Business and 
Engineering are flooded with app- 
licants. Management 301 alone en- 
rolls 600 students a semester with a 
waiting list of about 400. Ironically, 
students enrolled in the School of 
Business find themselves taking 
courses in the liberal arts sector of 
the University as part of their busi- 
ness requirements. 
INDEX: Your management 301 
lectures are perhaps the most ani- 
mated and best known on campus. 
What do you attribute this to? 
ODIORNE: Well I enjoy taking a 
sophisticated subject and making it 
very clear; presenting it in a casual 

and interesting fashion. I also make 
up my own visuals; I don't use 
slides so that way I can throw out 
the old visuals and make up new 
ones to include my current think- 
ing. Audience feedback is impor- 
tant too. I love to lecture and 1 wish 
that I could speak to classes more 
than once a week, but that would 
defeat the purpose of 301. I want 
the student to get out there and 
have practical experience in get- 
ting research. My 301 students rep- 
resent the largest number of users 
of the UMass library. In ten years 
everything a student learned in 
college will be obsolete. There are 
two essential skills that will keep a 
person in tune with the rapidly 
changing world. One of these is 
knowing where to locate infor- 
mation; the other is knowing how 
to make decisions and solve prob- 
lems. Introduction to management 
provides the foundations for these. 
The important thing to get out of an 
education is not just facts and fig- 
ures but rather, acquiring the skill 
to think and develop your ideas 
and thoughts effectively. 
INDEX: Between your classroom 
work and consulting work what do 
you do with the remainder of your 

ODIORNE: Well I write of course, 
not just books, but articles for busi- 
ness periodicals and letters. I am 
also chairman of committees for 
doctoral candidates. I take these 
candidates with me on consulting 
trips so they will learn the ropes. 
Bringing students to my home in 
Amherst where I live with my wife, 
three cats and one dog, is another 
thing I concentrate on. My wife has 
her own business and occasionally 
I do a bit of consulting for her! 

For fun, I have a Honda 175 
which I take up to hill country. And 
for exercise I swim a mile, over- 
hand crawl, everyday in 36 


The Committee for the Collegiate 
Education of Black Students (CCEBS) 
was initiated in 1966 by a group of 
concerned Black faculty and staff at the 
University. Since that time, the pro- 
gram has been committed to recruiting 
and assisting Black, Spanish-speaking, 
Asian- American, and low-income stu- 
dents. CCEBS has concentrated on de- 
veloping programs that will enable 
students in the program to be success- 
ful in their educational pursuits and 
make the necessary transitions in Uni- 
versity life. 

CCEBS services are divided into 
three components: Academic Services, 
Personal Counseling, and Graduate 
and Career Development. The com- 
ponents aim to provide CCEBS stu- 
dents with special skills courses, tutor- 
ial services, academic advising, career 
and personal counseling, and econo- 
mic assistance. 

The CCEBS program is very inter- 
ested in recruiting minority and low- 
income students who feel college will 
better prepare them for later life. 


In the College of Arts and Sciences, 
one of the principal alternative pro- 
grams is BDIC, or Bachelors Degree 
with Individual Concentration. Work 
for this degree, usually beginning with 
the junior year, takes the place of a 
conventional major and makes it pos- 
sible to arrange a program of study not 
otherwise available. In developing 
your own concentrations, you may 
combine courses from different depart- 
ments or schools within the Univer- 
sity, from among the five area colleges, 
and from limited amounts of indepen- 
dent study and/or internships. 

To participate in the program, you 
must devote four consecutive semes- 
ters to BDIC, each consisting of at least 
nine hours of interrelated work. Two 
reports, written in consultation with 
the sponsor, are required each semes- 
ter and serve to clarify the concen- 
tration as it evolves. A program sum- 
mary is required of graduating seniors. 

If you have at least four semesters 
remaining at the University, you 
should start the application process 
with a BDIC counselor early in the 
second semester of your sophomore 
year. (Watch the Collegian for appli- 
cation deadlines.) The trained people 
in the BDIC office can help you draw 
up your proposal and can suggest a 
qualified faculty member to act as your 
adviser. This adviser evaluates your 
program as it progresses and helps in 
choosing courses and other experi- 
ences that might enrich your program. 

If you are a transfer student, you still 
may be able to participate in the pro- 
gram. Check with the BDIC office as 
soon as you can. 

On the Other Hand, the course and 
teacher evaluation guide published by 
the Academic Affairs Committee of the 
Student Senate, is an attempt to pro- 
vide us with the information we need 
to select courses and teachers intelli- 
gently. This could be our solution, 
except that faculty members must give 
us their permission to see and publish 
their evaluations and APPROXIMATE- 
is an extremely disturbing fact to pon- 
der. Some faculty members withhold 
their evaluations due to irresponsible 
editorializing in the early editions of 
the guide, but what about the rest? 
And when will those who had prob- 
lems with early editions forgive and 
forget? We're in a sorry state of affairs 
when over half our instructors refuse to 
make public student evaluations of 
their performance.

A quality education is available here 
at UMass, but we must be informed 
where to go to get it.

Many opportunities exist for incor- 
porating academic work done abroad 
into your UMass degree program. Full 
information about the wide range of 
possibilities may be obtained from the 
International Programs Office. 

During the summer, UMass offers 
programs in Oxford (England), Lisbon 
(Portugal), Freiburg (Germany), and 
Dijon (France). These programs com- 
bine six weeks of academic work (offer- 
ing six credits), with several weeks of 
independent travel. The Department of 
Anthropology sponsors a field study 
program in Europe during the spring 
and summer. 

A series of academic-year student 
exchange programs has been estab- 
lished with other universities abroad. 
Majors in the humanities, social sci- 
ences, sciences, engineering, business 
administration and other fields are eli- 
gible to participate in exchange pro- 

A number of other American univer- 
sities and colleges offer a wide assort- 
ment of overseas programs. Students 
also can enroll directly in universities 
of foreign countries. The cost of study- 
ing abroad varies greatly, but some 
programs are not very much more than 
a similar period at the Amherst cam- 

The International Programs Office 
offers counsel and information on 
many questions related to overseas 
study, and can also refer you to other 
appropriate sources of advice. 


The University Honors Program, al- 
so referred to as the Commonwealth 
Scholar's Program, offers an alternative 
to the distribution requirement for stu- 
dents of high academic motivation and 
proven ability. A contractual agree- 
ment is signed upon admission to the 

Any undergraduate who has suc- 
cessfully ' completed one Honors 
course and one semester's work at the 
University with at least a 3.2 cumulative 
average is eligible to apply to the Uni- 
versity Honors Program. 

Students who are accepted into this 
program have closer contact with their 
academic dean (the Honors Program 
Director), easier access to academic 
advisers, and the opportunity to work 
closely with a faculty adviser in their 
major department. A portfolio of writ- 
ten evaluations of each student's per- 
formance in Honors coursework is de- 
.veloped, making it possible for the 
director of the program to write very 
accurate and detailed letters of recom- 
mendation for jobs or graduate school. 

Honors courses are open to any 
student at the University. They offer 
small group instruction, personalized 
comment on student work, and carry 
one more credit than normal Univer- 
sity courses. (Usually Honors courses 
are three credits plus a one-credit 
Honors colloquium.) 

The departmental honors program 
of her or his department is required for 
any student who wishes to graduate 
with higher honors (that is, magna cum 
Inude or summa cum laude). That pro- 
gram operates independently of the 
University Honors Program. 


The Office of Internships gives you 
the opportunity to complement your 
academic work with field experience. 
Through the office it is possible for 
qualified students to spend a semester 
off-campus in the working world. 

If you are accepted into the program, 
you get "on the job experience" while 
maintaining close contact with a faculty 
sponsor and internship coordinator. 
You can earn up to 15 credits for each 
semester you spend in your internship. 
The program is designed to integrate 
the experience of the internship with 
your prior and future course of study. 
The office staff members work with 
you on planning during the semester 
before you go on the internship. They 
can help you: 

—design an academic program that 
will support and complement the in- 

—identify and evaluate possible in- 
ternship sites; 

— select faculty sponsors; 
— maintain records of your intern- 
ship to ensure your academic standing; 
— coordinate on-site visits for eval- 

—reintegrate into the University 
after your internship. 

The office places most of its students 
in Eastern and Western Massachusetts, 
and a significant number in New York 
City and Washington, DC. Students 
also have interned in such places as 
Israel, England and France. 


Help with and information about 
academic programs and regulations are 
available at the College of Arts and 
Sciences Information and Advising 
Center (CASIAC) . The CASIAC staff is 
composed of students, faculty, staff, 
and deans from the College of Arts and 
Sciences, as well as some represen- 
tatives from other schools, colleges, 
and programs. 

Information available at CASIAC in- 
cludes The Majors Boo/c, (which lists all 
major programs at the University and 
their requirements), forms for proces- 
sing various academic actions, infor- 
mation about special and interdepart- 
mental programs, and, during regis- 
tration, lists of open courses. 

Counselors are available at the cen- 
ter during all office hours. Available by 
appointment are special counselors to 
help students interested in Five Col- 
lege courses, the School of Education 
(available once a week), pre-law, pre- 
social work, and pre-graduate study. 
There is also information on tutoring 
for students who desire extra help in 
some courses. 

A computer index to courses offered 
at the University is now available to 
students looking for courses in par- 
ticular subject areas, which satisfy cer- 
tain requirements, or which meet at 
specific times. Called Computer Assis- 
tance for Students Preparing for Early 
Registration (CASPER), it is located at 
the CASIAC office for student use., 
the CASIAC office for student use. 

CASIAC also runs the Center for 
Interdepartmental Studies, which has 
information on interdisciplinary 
majors like Judaic Studies, Social 
Thought and Political Economy, Clas- 
sics and Philosophy, Near Eastern 
Studies, and Linguistics and Russian, 
Linguistics and German, and Lingui- 
stics and Philosophy. 


The Division of Continuing Educ- 
ation serves as a link between the 
University of Massachusetts and cit- 
izens throughout the state. The Div- 
ision plays an active role in establishing 
and maintaining a wide range of educa- 
tional programs and related activities. 
The Division serves the needs of part- 
time, nontraditional students and pro- 
vides a number of academic programs 
for full-time University students as 

Continuing Education's Credit Pro- 
gram Office administers an evening 
program. Summer Session, Winterses- i 
sion, and a number of special credit 
courses both on and off campus. The 
Division's Bachelor of General Studies i 
degree, in addition to three specific and ' 
unique degree tracts in Criminal Jus- 
tice, Fire Science, and Liberal Studies, i 
offers students considerable flexibility 
in designing, with a faculty member, 
interdisciplinary degree programs. 

Anyone with a high school diploma 
or its equivalent is eligible to register 
for a credit course. Part-time students 
are eligible for most undergraduate 
degrees offered by the University, pro- 
vided they are accepted by an academic : 
department and meet the requirements 
for that degree. A part-time bachelor's 
degree can be obtained, as can teacher 
certification. Registering for courses 
through the Division of Continuing 
Education does not, however, guaran- 
tee admission to a degree program at 
the University. 

Each semester plus Summer Session . 
and Wintersession, the Credit-Free 
Workshop Program offers numerous 
workshops in a variety of areas in- 
cluding arts and crafts, dance, language 
and writing, career development, en- 
ergy conservation, and test pre- 

Women's Studies 

The Women's Studies at UMass is 
condsidered one of the most estab- 
lished and distinguished of over three 
hundred programs in the country. 
Now in its sixth year, it has grown from 
its initial status as a two-year pilot 
program with a half-time coordinator, 
two part-time staff and no faculty, to an 
independent degree granting program 
with a full-time academic coordinator, 
one part-time staff, one full-time staff 
and 1.6 faculty (three part-time faculty) 
This growth has not happened because 
of the benevolent good will of the 
administration, rather it has happened 
because committed students, staff, and 
faculty have struggled together, nur- 
turing its growth. 

This past spring was a landmark part 
of our struggle to be recognized as a 
viable program. After continued neg- 
lect on the part of the administration, 
the Faculty Senate Committee on the 
Status of Women requested that the 
Senate pass a motion urging the admin- 
istration to take immediate action on 
the status of Women's Studies. Though 
two years before the same request had 
been made, the paper work had mirac- 
ulously been disregarded in the memo- 
randum shuffle of the bureaucrats. 

The action began.. ..More than 100 
faculty sign a petition urging the Chan- 
cellor to approve the program.. ..In an 

emergency meeting of all Women's 
Studies students, faculty and staff, 
plans are made.. ..Petitions are signed 
by more than one thousand concerned 
members of the community.... Koffler's 
deadline passes.. .And finally a memo 
(!) from the Chancellor giving his ap- 
proval to us as a separate, autonomous, 
degree granting program. May Day 
was spent in celebration, and everyone 
who had worried, leafletted, written 
postcards, petitioned, licked envelopes 
, had nightmares and burnt out, 
had nightmares and burnt out, 
breathed a collective sigh of relief. 

Yet the struggle was/is by no means 
over. The Chancellor sends his recom- 
mendations on to the President and 
then to the Board of Trustees. There is 
of course no guarantee that either body 
will approve our autonomy. Even if 
they do, no promises have been made 
in regard to future resources. We are, 
however, now in the position of being 
considered as worthy of funding as any 
other degree granting program. 

So our struggle to live/learn contin- 
ues. We have shown that we have the 
strength and devotion to organize our- 
selves, and we will show it again if we 
have to. Being women studying 
women is not something that any of us 
can afford to take lightly, and we will 
not let our rights be forgotten by any- 
one on this campus.

The idea of organized athlencs began with the ancient Greeks and has evolved into the 20th century. Here at 
UMass there are over 28 intercollegiate teams with 1,107 varsity athletes. The intramural program has the 
participation of over 81 27 students. The spirit of organized athletics lives on in many ways at UMass.

tJTe Dix'isiim lAA National Champion- 
ship finals in '78, the Minutemen 
started onl\' two seniors on defense. 
And after surrendering 35 points to 
Villano\-a in a season-opening loss, the 
\'oung unit clamped down. 

In the next four games, the team 

men posted wins over Maine (38-14), 
Har\'ard (20-7), North Carolina Cen- 
tral (48-7) and Boston University (20- 
6). The BU game was a showdown of 
the two Yankee Conference leaders as 
UMass was undefeated in league play, 
while the Terriers had not \'et lost a 
game in or out of the conference. 

Homecoming saw the Minutemen 
up their YanCdn winning streak to 13 
games by beating Rhode Island 24-0. 
The following week this streak was 
snapped as UMass was stunned by 
Connecticut, 24-0. 

The Minutemen had apparently 
recovered by the next Saturday and 
were leading Holv Cross 18-6 in the 

fourth quarter when "a freak thing 
happened": UMass co-captain Kevin 
Sulli\'an suffered a broken leg as he 
was tackled in front of the UMass bench 
while returning a punt. "If it had 
happened somewhere else on the 
field," Pickett said,"it wouldn't have 
affected our team. But it was right in 
fromt of us." After that, the Crusaders 
struck for two late touchdowns and 
won the game, 20-18. 

The Minutemen took out their frus- 
tration the next Saturday on New 
Hampshire, routing the Wildcats, 29-0. 
UMass limited UNH to two net yards 
rushing. After the game, Pickett called 
his squad, "the best Division 1 AA foot- 

ball team in the East." The win gave 
UMass a tie with BU for the YanCon 

The season ended on- a low note, 
Boston College avenged a 27-0 defeat 
at the hands of UMass in '78 with a 41-3 

Senior quarterback Mike McEvilly 
had a fine year and was named All- 
New England quarterback by United 
Press International. McEvilly joined 
ten teammates on the All Yankee 
Conference first team. Seniors named 
were Sandro Vitiello, Kevin O'Connor, 
Karl Nyholm, Tim Fontaine, Kevin 
Sullivan and Marty Paglione.

Confessions of a Woman Rugby Player 

"You play what?!?" is the most 
common question I hear when I tell 
someone I play rugby. This is usually 
followed up by something like, "Do 
you use a stick?" or "Don't you get 
hurt all the time?" as they glance 
skeptically at my awesome 5"4" 
frame. To me, these typify the opin- 
ions which surround the sport. Either 
they have no clue as to what rugby is 
or they picture rugby players as wild 
animals bent on destroying all that 
stands in their way. (Maybe they're 
right to some degree, but that's not 
what this is all about.) 

To begin with, when you're covered 
with 6 inches of mud, have mucus 
running out of your nose, and your 
drooling from your mouthgard, the 
woman part is irrelevant. You are a 
rugby player. But the senior part has 
some pretty valid points or impres- 

Since I played for Smith College, I 
soon learned to do away with my com- 
fortable stereotypes. On the team 
there were women from Smith, Am- 
herst, and UMass. We ranged from 
freshmen to grad students. We were a 
group with rugby in common and be 
the end of the season, I considered 
these women among my best friends. 
Practice, games, roadtrips, parties, and 
more parties brought together an un- 
likely assortment of women and made 
us into a team. 

The roadtrips began a journey to a 
Mardi Gras tournament in New Or- 
leans. From there we traveled to Bos- 
ton, New York, New Jersey, and 
Rhode Island. When we played at the 
different colleges, I enjoyed compar- 
ing them to UMass. Sometimes the 
physical structure was more impres- 
sive, or the reputation of the school 
was intimidating. But for the most 
part, I came away feeling good about 
being at UMass and the individuality 
this place projects, and in tern allows 
its students. 

Probably the most beneficial thing 
was learning to work at something 
practically brand new with an unfa- 
miliar group of people. I hadn't done 
that since my "freshman experience" 
and I needed a refresher course to pre- 
pare me for the real world. 

Being a woman and playing rugby 
might seem a novelty to some. But for 
me, and the rest of the Smith College 
Human Bullets, playing was a very 
positive aspect of my college career. 
There is a bumper sticker which 
reads, "In rugby there are no winners- 
only survivors." I hope I continue to 
survive in this game for a long time, 
and I hope to see women's rugby 
achieve more popularity. It taught me 
a lot and I love it! 

Band Together 

What motivates 180 busy college 
students to take a couple of hours 
from each and every day to go to an 
outdoor rehearsal, no matter what the 
weather? Why does that same group 
rehearse and perform on Saturdays, 

and often take a Sunday to perform at 
any one of a number of locations 
throughout New England? Those 
busy students spend all that time and 
effort striving to achieve one goal: 
maintaining the reputation of the 
"Minuteman" Marching Band as the 
finest collegiate marching band in the 

Members of the '79-80 "Minute- 
man" Band have many memories 
from a terrific season to treasure. The 
five standing ovations at Cawley Sta- 
dium at Lowell; the roar of Harvard 
fans during the UMass performance; 
the friendly rivalry between band 
members from UMass and UConn; 
the overwhelming reception by the 
crowds at Saugus and Fanueil Hall. 
Those members will also remember 
the less pleasant parts of the season. 
The hurricane force winds one rainy 

afternoon; the practice field churned 
to soup by the 180 pairs of muddy 
boots; doing pre-game time after time 
under the hot sun until it was just 
right; the callouses and the blisters. 

The crowds come foaring to their 
feet as the band concludes a show 
with a driving finish that shakes the 
press box. The band and its director, 
Gearge N. Parks, work hard to bring 
this powerful and stimulating blend 
of color, motion, and music to each 
performance, carefully combining the 
full, rich sound of the 150 piece en- 
semble with the dynamic 32 member 
colorguard. Under the field direction 
of Drum Majors Michael Jendrysik 
and Linda Paul, the band was met ev- 
erywhere by enthusiastic crowds who 
were thrilled by the stimulating music 
and precision drill. 


Alex Eldridee, 24, Killed by Blood Clot 

Alex Eldridge, the first high school 
male all-American basketball player 
to attend the University of Massachu- 
setts, and possibly the most contro- 
versial basketball player to ever play 
for the university, died in the Bronx, 

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound playmak- 
ing guard apparently was striken 
while taking a bath at his mother's 

Eldridge had been jogging with his 
high school teammate Tony Price. 
They had come to the Eldridge home 
to wash up. While he was in the tub, 
apparently a blood clot in his leg 
moved to his heart, causing a blood 
stoppage that killed the 24-year-oid. 

Eldridge, whose nickname at 

UMass was "Boo", was a member of a 

S Taft team that won the city champion- 

iship and may have been one of New 

York City's best high school teams. 

Sharing backcourt duties with El- 
dridge was all-American Butch Lee 
who went on to become a collegiate 
all-American at Marquette and is now 
playing professional basketball for 
Cleveland. At forward was rice, who 
was a high school all-American and 
then a star at Pennsylvania, leading 
the Quakers to the NCAA final two 
years ago. 

...Also oij the team was Eldridge's 
childhood^friend and UMass team- 
mate, Derik Claiborne. 

Eldridge came to UMass amid a 
great deal of publicity, as the first 
high school all-American to be suc- 
cessfully recruited by the university. 
He moved directly into the starting 
lineup, and immediately built up a 
following, of fans and foes. 

In his four years at the University 
he was suspended from the team twice 
in disciplinary actions, but was wel- 
comed back each time. 

He played so well at times that he 
seemed a certainty to lead the Minute- 
men to the NCAA playoffs and to 
earn himself a shot as a professional 
player, his admitted goal. 

Other times he played lackadaisi- 
cally, bringing down the wrath of fel- 
low players, of coaches, and' of fans. 

Still his statistics were outstanding. 
He set a UMass record for assists, 
handing out 518, with an innate abili- 
ty to take in an entire basketball floor 
and pick out the right person to whom 
the basketball should go for the best 
scoring chance, and then get it to him 
in spectacular fashion. 

He was not an outstanding shooter 
from the outside, but he could drive to 
the basket, and make good shots off 
his drives. 

He scored 391 field goals in 773 
shots, a 50.5 percent accuracy, and 
sank 271 of 433 free throws, a 62.5 
percent accuracy. He scored 1053 ca- 
reer points, putting him in the top 15 
of UMass players. His 102 games 
played, third most of any UMass 
player (Claiborne had 107 and team- 
mate Mike Pyatt, 105) gave him a 10.3 
scoring average. 

Born May 30, 1956 in New York, he 
was working in Boston the last two 
years. His dream of becoming a pro- 
fessional basketball player was never 
realized, and his longer-range 
thoughts of teaching youngsters to 
play basketball have been left unful-

Few organizations on campus spend 
as much time and energy as the 
marching band does in service to its 
home institution. Besides its most ob- 
vious roles as a spirit booster for the 
Minuteman Football team and as an 
emissary from the University and the 
state, marching band students have a 
history of donating their time to pro- 
vide support at such events as basket- 
ball games, Homecoming Parades, 
Pep rallies, the Multibands concert, 
and, for the last several years, as the 
most successful fundraising group 
during the annual Alumni Telethon 
raising over 10,000 dollars each year 
in pledges. 

But what the fans don't see is the 
other side of the "Minuteman" 
Marching Band. It is hard to appreci- 
ate the camaraderie and espirit de 

corps ttiat develops among members. 
From the start, of pre-season band 
camp to the end of the season, they 
work as a unit on the field, and often 
you'll find them together off the field. 
For example, the band and its service 
fraternities, Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau 
Beta Sigma, sponsor social events for 
bandspeople throughout the year. 
These unforgettable get-togethers in- 
clude the Halloween costume party, 
the spring picnic, and the band ban- 

Often times, people tend to think of 
the marching band as a living organ- 
ism; a thinking, moving body that 
comes and goes and performs of its 
own accord. In some ways that's true, 
but much of this season's success is 
due to the tireless efforts of Director 
George Parks, Band Manager Tom 

Kinney, and all of the band and field 
staffs. Without their efforts, none of 
this season's triumphs could have be- 
come a reality. But most of all, success 
is due to the 180 dedicated people who 
are the "Minuteman" Marching Band, 
and who brought all the plans to life. 
They are the heart and soul of the 
group, and it is for them and their 
efforts that crowds rise, cheering, 
stamping, screaming; demonstrating 
their appreciation of what has been 
accomplished. Heartfelt thanks to all 
of them, for giving so much of them- 
selves to this University, through all 
the activities of the "Minuteman" 
Marching Band.

The 1980 season for the Women's Ski 
Team was quite successful. Ten first 
place, one second place, and one fourth 
place victories were obtained against 
Amherst,"-Smith and Boston College 
women. UMass women had another 
fantastic season, pocketing a 32-4 win- 
/loss ratio determined by place scoring. 
For the fifth straight year, UMass was 
first in the Women's IntercoUege Ski 
Conference 1980. 

The team was invited to the Eastern 
Championships where they finished 
ninth out of twelve colleges in competi- 
tion. Outstanding performances were 
illustrated by all team members. One 
especially outstanding display of ski- 
ing was given by Sweepie Voll, a 
UMass freshman who won nine out of 
ten races she entered. 

The UMass Ski Program has a single 
varsity team for both men and women. 
The teams train together. The women's 
league races first on the same course 
that the men run. 

With an outstanding record of 10 to 2 
and a first place showing at the 
MAIAW championships, the Women's 
Gymnastic Team concluded an excel- 
lent 1980 season. The team also took 
third place at the EIAIW champion- 

The 1980 team combined the exuber- 
ance of freshmen and sophomores 
coupled with the experience of four re- 
turning letterwomen to create a strong 
New England power. Freshman Liz 
Marino was awarded "Most Valuable 
Gymnast" at the AIAW National 

The most outstanding win of the sea- 
son was against Michigan State, with a 
final score of 135.50 to 135.40. This was 
truely a team success. The best score of 
the year was against Courtland, 134.54. 
The best event was vaulting, with a 

This year's team performed better 
than the previous year and moved from 
fourth to third in the EAIAW Cham- 

The 1980 season proved to be a win- 
ning one for the Men's Ski Team. In 
the New England IntercoUege Ski Con- 
ference, UMass had seven first place 
-winners in twelve events against seven 
colleges that competed. The win/loss 
ratio of points accumulated was an out- 
standing 67-5. 

The other teams competing were 
Plymouth State College, who finished 
in second place for the year. Northeas- 
tern came in third, Boston College came 
in fourth, Amherst fifth,„Brown sixth, 
and UConn seventh. 

CoCaptain Bob Grout finished first 
for individuals in the league, Pat 
Downes was third, Kevin Nolan was 
fourth and Scott Billings, Scott Broad- 
hurst, and Chris Wakefield finished 
12th, 13th, and 14th, respectively, to 
give Coach Bill MacConnell his 11th 
straight championship year. 

The UMass Baseball Team had a 
good season, with a record of 19-13-2. 
They had a 7-3 record in the Yankee 
Conference Championships, and a 3-0 
record in the Eastern Athletic Associ- 
ation Championships. 

The two outstanding players for the 
team were pitcher Chris Collins, with a 
6-1 pitching record, and 2.90 earned run 
average, and right fielder Doug Ayl- 
ward, who hit 400 with 4 homeruns and 
25 RBI's. 

Three players were named All New 
England, Doug Aylward, Mark Brown, 
and Chris Collins. One was All North- 
east Region, Doug Alyward. 

Two players on the team signed with 
professional baseball teams. Mark 
Brown, pitcher, first baseman and a 
designated hitter, who hit 344 with 3 
homeruns and 17 RBI's, signed with 
the Baltimore Orioles. Mike McEvilly, 
centerfield and firstbaseman, hit 4 ho- 
meruns and lead the team with 29 
RBI's, signed with the Detroit Tigers. 

With a successful record of 12-3, the 
University of Massachusetts Women's 
Soccer Team gleamed with pride. They 
started off their second season with a 
win at the Plymouth State Tournament. 
They tallied this win by beating the 
University of New Hampshire, Univer- 
sity of Vermont, Boston College and 
tying Plymouth State. 

The Minutewomen hung closely to- 
gether to maintain their desire to keep 
on winning; it was a feeling of which 
they could not get enough: the sweet 

Proving themselves, they entered the 
Easterns seeded first. This was the first 
Women's Soccer Tournament held in 
the United States. The tournament end- 
ed for the Minutewomen in a painful 
fourth place. After having won the first 
round against the University of Con- 
necticut, the women hooters were de- 
feated by Harvard during a sudden- 
death overtime. Harvard had proven 
their strength in previous games, yet 
had never been able to beat UMass un- 
til that day. The next game was predict- 
able. With the previous loss they knew 
that the title was out of reach. They 
tried, yet the storming weather condi- 
tions made the last game unbearable. 
The season ended. Yet UMass felt they 
needed to go on to show that they had 
been caught on an off-day. And so they 

The team was lead by Tri-Captains 
Karen Keough, Nancy Lapointe and 
Aline Sammut. Most Valuable Players 
nominated were Nina Holmstrom and 
Jackie Gaw, both freshwomen. Most 

a freshwoman, and Kelly TuUer, a ju- 
nior; TuUer emphasized the team's 
strength with six shutouts in goal. Top 
scorers were Natalie Prosser, Margie 
Anderson and Maddy Mangini; their 
combined efforts accounted for most of 
the team's 67 goals. 

The spirit that bonded this team is 
one which is hard to find. It linked each 
player by melding their individual en- 
thusiasms into one strong personality. 
Each part supported the whole by their 
cheering among themselves and their 
pride. It was clear that this was an ex- 
traordinary team.

The Women's Swimming and Div- 
ing Team ended a tough, but victorious 
1979-80 season with a 6-6 record. The 
dual meet record was the best they had 
in four years, but due to injuries and 
sickness, the outcome of the New Eng- 
land Championships was a disappoint- 
ing 9th out of 11 teams in the more 
competitive Division A bracket. 

The team's strength came primarily 
from the freshwomen and sophomores 
who will help to build the team to high- 
er competitive levels in future years. 
With Coach John Nunnelly's success- 
ful recruiting, 15 pool records were 
broken by the young team members, 
-reshwoman Leslie Johnson, voted the 
Most Valuable Player, led the team in 
total points scored and broke 5 of the 
pool records, including 3 individual 
events (200 and 500 freestyle and 200 
yard backstroke) and 2 relays (400 yard 
Medley Relay and 800 yard Freestyle 
Relay). The other relay members break- 
ing the 2 records included Kathy Jur- 
cik, team captain, Theresa Totin, Judy 
Miller, Jennifer Black, Nancee Shif- 
flett. On the diving boards, Kathy Dris- 
coU in the 1 meter diving, and Denise 
Tetro in the 3 meter diving set all 6 pool 
records. Diving was a major strength 
for the team and the divers were 
coached by Bruce Parsons. 

The point scorers and finalists in the 
New England Championships included 
Leslie Johnson, Kathy Driscoll, Nancee 
Shifflett, Jennifer Black, Judy Miller, 
Caroline Benjamin, Denise Tetro, Gail 
Holland, Sue Flynn, Ceclia Walsh, and 
Nancy Collins. 

Team depth was important to cover 
all events in competition and other fine 
team competitors and point scorers 
throughout the season included Jeanne 
Kelly, Judy Goffi, Nancy Field, Cindy 
Piela, Laura Frank, Cris Moerison, Joan 
Spierdowis, and Jean Bushee. Jennifer 
Black received the Most Improved 
Swimmer Award, with the Most Im- 
proved Diver Award going to Denise

The Women's Volleyball Team be- 
gan to change in its seventh year of 
existence. From just another team play- 
ing within this state's boundries, the 
Minutewomen sought to exert every 
skill, every set, every spike, in order to 
rise above the ordinary and become a 
power not only of New England, but of 
the Eastern seaboard as well. 

The 1979-80 season for the Minute- 
men was one for learning, with no sen- 
iors on the squad and Coach Yarworth 
in his first season. Lack of collegiate 
experience and lack of scoring depth 
hurt the Minutemen, who finished 
with a 3-7 dual meet record and a thir- 
teenth place finish in the New England 
championships. Throughout the sea- 
son the Minutemen gained this valu- 
able experience necessary to win meets, 
with the help of junior co-captains Bob 
DeConinck and John Sleeman, a trans- 
fer from Brown University. 

Adding points to the scoreboard were 
distancemen Sleeman, DeConinck, 
freshman Mike Boucher, sprinters 
Tom Dundon and Stephen Samuels, 
butterflyers Jib Bowers and Ted Candi- 
loro, breaststrokers Dave Stevens and 
Howie Abramson, and backstroker 
John Mulvaney. 

As in the past years, the Minutemen 
were strong in diving led by Dan Anth- 
ony, Mark Vernaglia, Joe Moneghan, 
and John Findley. 

Coach Yarworth was especially 
pleased with Sleeman's record setting 
performances in the 500 and 1000 yard 
freestyle, Mike Boucher's record in the 
1650 freestyle and the record setting 
400 yard freestyle relay team of John 
Kruse, Steve Samuels, John Sleeman 
and standout sprinter Tom Dundon. 

The 1980 Men's Gymnastic Team 
had a very successful season with a 6-3 
record, under the leadership and guid- 
ance of head coach Ray Johnson. 

Coach Johnson's recruiting efforts, 
the return of top all-around competitor 
Bob Donahue, and ring specialist Dave 
Felleman, both coming back after in- 
juries, and transfer all-around captain 
Hugh O'Neall, the UMass team was 
tough and solid. Although the team is 
young, it is experienced because most 
of the competitors are juniors and 
sophomores. Many freshmen hopefuls 
rounded out the team. 

In a summary of individual events 
seasons records, Dave Buegler earned a 
8.45 in the floor exercise, Tim Barry, a 
8.85 in the pummel horse, Dave Felle- 
man, a 8.95 in the still rings, Robert 
Lamb, a 9.5 in long horse vaulting,' 
Robert Donahue, a 9.1 in the parallel 
bars, Hugh O'Neall, a 9.35 in the hori- 
zantal bars, and Robert Donahue, a 
51.60 in the all-around. These outstand- 
ing performances, along with the entire 
UMass team should be commended for 
a fine season. 

The 1980 Varsity Lacrosse Team en- 
joyed another successful season, with 8 
wins and 5 losses, while capturing the 
USILA Championship. 

While participating in the pre-season 
Navy Invitational Lacrosse Tourna- 
ment at Annopolis, Maryland, March 
7,8, and 9, UMass defeated Hobart and 
the University of Delaware, but lost the 
championship to the Navy. 

During the regular season, UMass 
posted outstanding wins over Rutgers 
(15-14), Boston College (15-8), Hofstra 
(16-8), UNH (17-13), and Datmouth (16- 
14) with tough losses to Army (9-10), 
Harvard (8-11), and Syracuse (7-14). 

"Garber's Gorillas" were a young 
team, featuring 22 freshmen and soph- 
omores, who played an exciting brand 
of lacrosse. 

Junior Co-Captain Peter Schmitz 
(midfield) and sensational scoring 
sophomore Attackman Jim Weller 
gained All-American Honors. 

Jim Weller (Attack), Peter Schmitz 
(Midfield), and Paul Kinnane (Defense) 
were selected to the First»Team All New 
England. Senior Attackman Davis Mar- 
tin and Senior Midfiedler Mike Lewis 
were selected to play in the New Eng- 
land East-West All Star Game in 
Springfield. Both excelled in the game.

The spectrum of places to live at U Mass is extremely varied. Whether it be a dorm, fraternity or sorority.a house or 
an apartment, it is your home away from home. 


Central Area is composed of ten dor- 
mitories in which 2000 residents live. 
They range in size from Baker, which has 
over 250, to the small Butterfield which 
has barely 120. Brett has recently been 
renovated to meet the needs of the handi- 

The area is split up into four "clusters". 
The cluster is a group of dormitories 
which have as administrators, a cluster 
coordinator (full time) and a part-time, 
live- in person for each of the other dorms. 
This system enabled the students to be 
more self-governing in that it gives more 
responsibility to the house councils and 
the judicial board, as well as the student 
staff, the Community Resource assistants. 

The area government has control of the 
Student Senate allocated budget of ap- 
proximately $1 7,000. Among the things to 
which this money is allocated are: the 
annual Spring concert held in late April, 
the Greenough Craft Shop, dormitory 
coffeehouses, as well as the Women's, 

Men's and New World Centers. The area 
government also deals with issues that are 
important to the students and the com- 

Central Area residents are eligible to 
participate in the Orchard Hill/Central 
Residential College, which enables the 
student to take many more core satisfying 
courses right within the residential areas. 
These courses are taught by full-time 
University professors. Many other cour- 
ses are also offered on the Hill that can not 
be found elsewhere at the University. 

Living in Central Area gives the student 
a chance to live in a traditional dormitory, 
providing the student with ample area to 
live, work and play. All the dorms have 
both lawns and ample parking for those 
students who have cars. It also gives the 
student a place to meet people and a place 
to grow in many more ways than academ-

The Pro's and Con's of Central 

Pass under the bridge linking the two 
halves of the Morrill Science Center and 
you leave the frenetic, frustrating lunacy 
of UMass and enter into the quiet hush (or 
is it a low rumble?) of the Central Res- 
idential Area, a group often "traditionally 
styled" buildings which meander their 
way up the side of the hill, the rhythmic 
progression of its classical brick detail 
broken half-way by Baker, commanding 
its perch at the top of the hill like Wuth- 
ering Heights, and finally progressing 
upward to be capped gracefully by the 
cupola of Van Meter. As with everything 
else at this nest of Philistines they call the 
University of Massachusetts, there are 
some good things and some bad things 
about living in Central. 

For one thing, save for Northeast, you 
cannot beat the location of Central. (That 
is, if you are fortunate enough to live at the 
bottom of the hill.) Food plays an impor- 
tant part in our lives in this area.Butter- 
field has its own dining room, an especi- 
ally welcome facility on days when you 

just don't feel like trudging to the Dining 
Commons. For those who find remaining 
on their diets of melba toast and stolen DC 
lettuce intolerable, or who are looking for 
an easy way to sleaze out of doing late 
night work, the snack bar in Greenough is 
there to provide sustenance. And of cour- 
se, the cognoscenti of Central know that the 
only place to go for soul food in the 
Pioneer Valley is Yvonne's in the base- 
ment of the New Africa House. 

Winter is always fun in Central, and the 
highlight of the season is fraying down 
Baker Hill. In the spring this activity is 
replaced by the pushing of Baker's dump- 
sters down said hill, a weekly event and a 
source of great fun for all. The proximity 
of the infirmary must also be relegated to 
the "plus" column, making it very conven- 
ient for a quick detoxification or getting 
your fiftieth Sudafed refill. 

There are some bad qualities about life 
in Central. The location, which was al- 
ready mentioned as a benefit, moves into 
the "minus" column if you live at the top 

of the hill. It is especially bad in the winter 
and on hot days. When you're drunk, 
forget it. Not only do you have to walk up 
the damn hill, but God help you if you live 
on the fifth floor of VanMeter, for in 
opting for the classiness of "traditional" 
dorms, you have forgone any modern 
conveniences such as elevators. Down at 
the bottom of the hill, the phrase "modern 
convenience" takes on a new meaning. In 
Brooks House, one pays extra to live on a 
floor with hot and cold running water, or 
toilets that flush. Brooks is sort of the 
economy model as dormitories go. (In all 
deference to Mr. Brooks however, by the 
time you read this Brooks will have been 
renovated, and although it still won't have 
valet parking, it will be pretty nice.) 

On the whole, if s very nice to live here. 
If I've mentioned too many bad things, let 
me just say that it really isn't so horrible, 
and even when things get rough, you have 
the pleasure of people with whom you can 
commiserate. Besides, things could be 

worse. We could live in Southwest

The Northeast Area Government had a 
very productive year. Two highlights of 
the first semester were the Christmas 
lights in the middle of the quad and the 
substantial funding to the Women's Cen- 
ter by the government. But, the second 
semester was more exciting and eventful. 
Quad Day, that successful festival of the 
Gods, took place on April 27. As a tune-up 
for Quad Day, the annual Spring Banquet 
was held on the tenth floor of the Campus 
Center. It was a great time for all who 

One of the main services provided by 
the government for the area residents was 
the installment of two computers in Ham- 
lin's basement. NEAG also had a stereo 
available for any dorm to use for a func- 
tion. In addition to these services, NEAG 
also allotted each Northeast Area dorm 
$50 for coffeehouses.

Dear Pam 

October 30, 1979 
London, England 

Received your letter today and as al- 
ways, was excited and happy to hear from 
you. It couldn't have come on a better day 
because this had to be the all time low of 
my student teaching experience. The day 
began bad and got progressively worse. 
The 93 was later than usual this morning, 
and I ended up waiting in the queue 
(that's English for "line") for nearly forty- 
five minutes. Of course it was raining. 
Finally I was on the bloody bus, but was 
made to sit on the top deck with the 
smokers. Just as I was feeling thankful for 
having found a seat, a pimply-faced 
school boy in uniform plopped himself 
down beside me landing squarely on my 
Boston bookbag. My peanut butter and 
jelly sandwich became one with my day's 
lesson plans. 

Disembarking the bus, I lookeci the 
wrong way before crossing the street and 
nearly got killed by an oncoming taxicab. 
(Yes "Again!", I'll get the hang of their 
system before I leave!). 

The school day was a myriad of bad 
events. I misspelled colour and centre 
today, and I forgot to call my sneakers 
"plimsoles" in P.E. class. Then my college 
advisor came in as I was carving pump- 
kins and explaining American Halloween. 

He didn't understand the custom. To add 
insult to injury, a clumsy girl dropped my 
masterpieces and smashed them to 

The day took a turn for the better when I 
caught the early bus back to the college. 
However, I slept through my stop and 
ended up back tracking a mile. I dragged 
myself up the stairs to Top Berry where 1 
was informed that I had "post from Amer- 
ica" awaiting me. 

Ah Pamela! Only an English major like 
yourself could describe in words a place 
as complex as U. Mass. I never thought I'd 
say this, but I really miss the place. We saw 
life unfold before our eyes in our shoe- 
box sized hide-away room in Mary Lyon. 
The entertainment was constant; all we 
had to do was open the window, turn off 
the lights and observe. 

Remember the time someone set the 
grassy hill of the quad on fire, and just as 
the fire trucks pulled in, a blaring stereo 
from Thatcher proclaimed "Come on 
baby light my fire." Music for every oc- 
casion! Also from Thatcher (same stereo?) 
came seasonal music; "Christmas with 
Alvin and the Chipmunks" at 2AM will 
not soon be forgotten. 

Is the mad trumpeter still around? I 
can't imagine the quad without its nightly 
rendition of "Taps" at twelve. Also not to 

be forgotten is the screamer. He seemed 
to voice the general concensus of his 
fellow students in his nightly, ear-splitting 
screech which reverberated against the 
other dorms. 

All hostilities were released in those 
Thatcher ' Mary Lyon, Crabtree / Mary 
Lyon screaming matches. Insults and ob- 
scenities flew back and forth most readily. 
If only they could add such description to 
their rhetoric papers! 

1 really miss watching the sporting 
events of the quad. Remember the time all 
the guys were playing football in the snow 
and mud? It looked like a commercial for 
Bold Laundry Detergent with them all 
wallowing around. We thought we went 
unnoticed peering out of the fourth floor 
hallway window when suddenly the hud- 
dle below us broke and snow/mud balls 
came flying through the open window at 
us. What a mess! 

Of course Mary Lyon does have its 
drawbacks. Like when the wind blows the 
wrong way and we get a sneak preview of 
the fate that awaits us at the D.C. Whv 
does it always smell like fried onions? We 
are never zeroed fried onions! 

Weil Pam, ifs time for me to go to 
supper (steak and kidney pie--vuck!). 
Write again when you have the chance. 
Say hello to everyone for me. 1 miss vou!

Orchard Hill 

Orchard Hill is a living area consisting 
of four seven-floor dorms. O.H. includes 
coed and single sex living. It provides 
students from the area and Central res- 
idents with the Orchard Hill Residential 
College program. The Residential College 
offers three and four credit courses in a 
comfortable, relaxed atmosphere of class- 
rooms and lounges in the Orchard Hill 

The area government also provides its 
students with services unique to the area. 
The list includes the Hilltop Snackbar, 
Men's and Women's Centers, Academic 
Counselling, a Third World Center, a 
German Corridor, and much more. Also, 
there is the Orchard Hill/Central concert 
that is sponsored by both area govern- 

Although Orchard Hill works closely 
with Central, it provides a distinct living 
experience. Orchard Hill provides a 
unique combination of contemporary liv- 
ing in a very traditional setting. A view of 
the entire campus can be seen from Or- 
chard Hill. 

chard Hill. It could best be described as a 
secluded and peaceful mini-city. 

— Tim Galla^ihcr 

There's No Other Place Like It 

When I was asked to write an article 
about Orchard Hill, I panicked. How do I 
tell people who have never lived there 
about the experiences of living on the 
Hill? How do you explain to someone that 
living on the Hill is both great and a pain 
because of the location? There's so much 
to Orchard Hill and the only way to get 
more than a vague impression of it is to 
live there, but I'll give it a try. 

There are the traditional opportunities 
offered to the students of Orchard Hill 
and Central in the Orchard Hill Resi- 
dential College. Students get to take 
courses in the comfort of their own dorms. 
If s great to be able to roll out of bed, go 
down a few flights and have class in a 
lounge. The seats are more comfortable 
and the atmosphere more relaxed. Be- 
sides, you don't even have to deal with 
weather conditions or the hill. There are 
also community centers open for special 
interest organizations. 

But Orchard Hill is so much more. It is 
learning to climb the hill every time you 
want to go back to the dorm — or learn to 
read the bus schedule. I have yet to 
accomplish that feat, so my legs are in very 
good shape — a definite plus for the 

health-conscious individual, a definite 
minus for the lazy one. Orchard Hill is a 
beautiful view of the changing colors of all 
the leaves in the fall; it is dealing with mud 
in the early spring; and it is apple blos- 
soms in the late spring. It is bowl wars at 
all hours of the day — preferably after 12 
midnight. If s also swimming in the bowl 
after nonstop rain. Orchard Hill is just a 
friendly stroll from Sylvan, Central and 
Northeast and yet it is secluded enough to 
forget the realities of the classroom part of 
UMass. In the winter, after everyone gets 
back in the afternoon, people just stroll in 
and out of each other's rooms: talking, 
socializing, partying, finding out what 
everyone else is up to — no one wants to 
leave the hill again. A feeling of closeness 
comes to most floors. 

This is just a small part of Orchard Hill. 
It tells nothing of the people, the im- 
promptu parties, the times when full 
floors would go to the Pub for happy 
hours or quarter beers. Without the peo- 
ple. Orchard Hill would just be four 
buildings named for famous writers, 
seven floors each. Thank goodness for the 
people, the Hill would be awfully boring 
without them. 



As the student governing body in the 
Southwest Residential area, the South- 
west Assembly has done an extraordinary 
amount of work providing services to 
students. Housed in the Hampden Stu- 
dent Center, the SWA expends its re- 
sources utilizing available facilities. 

As the Fall '79 semester got under way, 
the SWA contributed to installing 4 com- 
puter terminals in the front of Hampden. 
And when the library was shut down, the 
SWA worked to get tables in the pro- 
gramming area to facilitate study space. 

Approximately one-half of the South- 
west Assembly's budget is allocated to the 
Southwest Residential College support- 
ing the various academic programs (i.e. 
Malcolm X Center, Women's Center, Cen- 
ter for Racial Studies, Academic Affairs, 
etc.). Also supported is the Southwest 
radio station (WZZZ), the Southwest Au- 
dio/Visual department, the crafts center. 
International Women's Week and more. 

The Southwest Assembly also involves 
itself in extensive social programming. 
After a setback on Halloween weekend, it 
continued to sponsor numerous events 
such as concerts featuring Fastbuck, the 
KIDZ, Scientific Americans, a Grateful 
Dead night, a disco night, a Wimpout 
tournament, etc. 

Between April 27 and May 3, the South- 
west Assembly sponsored its biggest ev- 
ent of the year entitled SOUTHWEST 
WEEK, featuring bands performing daily 
on the SW pyramids, tournaments, a craft 
show, movies, coffeehouses, etc. It was 
climaxed with a concert on May 3rd fea- 
turing Martian Highway, Manyaca, Night- 
hawks, and Blue Angel. 

The Southwest Assembly has contin- 
uously involved itself with campus-wide 
affairs advocating student interests. As 
well, the SWA has been heard by scores of 
student governmental as well as admin- 
istrative and executive offices including 
the Vice-Chancellors and Chancellor.

There's No Place Like Home 

When I was asked to write a feature or\ 
Southwest I was baffled. A feature on 
Southwest? The zoo of Zoo Mass? The 
place where 5500 students live? Some of 
us even call it home. How could I possibly 
narrow down my options to write a co- 
herent feature? I finally figured it would 
be best to focus on the diversity of South- 
west. Diversity, that wonderful word that 
includes all. 

Thaf s the best way to describe South- 
west. High rises pierce the sky and low 
rises huddle close together in the sha- 
dows of them. Single-sex and co-ed living 
exist in the same buildings. 

Southwest is where one goes for "wild" 
parties (remember Halloween?) and 
where one can study (I have yet to go to 
the library solely for the sake of studying). 

We have so many opportunities in 
Southwest that do not exist elsewhere. 
Because Southwest is so large, there are 

many things to do but everyone finds his 
or her place and a small group of friends to 
be there with. We have the crafts shop, 
Munchies, the Hamden Theatre, the 
Women's Center, a radio station and so 
many less formal opportunities for enter- 
tainment and involvement. 

Southwest can be counted on to be full 
of people and sounds (except in the sum- 
mer, when if s blissfully empty and silent.) 
Where else could punk and disco live 
comfortably on the same floor? A voice 
can usually be heard talking to someone 
outside or in another dorm. 

Many people complain about South- 
west, thinking if s all noise and vandalism. 
We're not animals. True, 95% of the stu- 
dents are freshmen, but we were all 
freshmen at some point in time. We may 
not have the traditional architecture of 
Central or Northeast, but we also don't 
have to worry about unrenovated dorms. 

We don't have the view of Orchard Hill, 
but we don't have the hill to climb, either. 
In fact, in the high rises we can look out 
over the campus, the town of Amherst or 
rolling fields and hills, depending on the 
direction. Even in the basement of my 
dorm, I have a beautiful view of the 
sunset. Try to beat that - beauty and 
convenience in one. We may not have the 
suites of Sylvan, but we're not left alone 
on a deserted hill with just the wild 
animals of the forest to keep us company. 
We get to meet all kinds of people 
without going very far. We can take clas- 
ses and colloquiums. Southwest may only 
be roudy to an outsider, but thaf s because 
that is what he or she is looking for. A 
closer look will explain why many of us 
continue to live in Southwest, why we 
defend Southwest from the verbal attacks 
of people who don't live there and why we 
call Southwest home.

The Sylvan Area Government funds 
and sponsiirs a variety of programs and 
resources that are designed to offer the 
residents of Sylvan a number of outstand- 
ing opportunities to pursue numerous 
interests. These include: 

WSYL Radio (97.7 FM)-This station 
offers the student the opportunity to par- 
ticipate in the operation of a radio station. 
In recent years the station has become an 
area favorite, and enjoys a wide listener- 
ship throughout campus. The station is 
commercial-free, and invites D.J.'s to cre- 
ate their own programming in regular 
weekly time slots. 

WSYL T.V.-This station enables stu- 
dents to participate in all facets of tele- 
vision production, from the idea itself to 
the actual production, hi cooperation with 
the Union Video Council, WSYL T.V. has 
shown many informative programs, and 
enabled students to create the type of 
programs that they themselves would like 
to produce. 

The Subway-The student run snack- 

118/ Habitation 

bar, the Subway is open daily to serve the 
needs of Sylvan residents, and offers work 
study students the opporunity to get ex- 
perience working in a food service. 

Sylvan Cultural Center— The Cultural 
Center is designed to serve the needs and 
interests of the Third World community. 

Crafts Center— This center gives stu- 
dents the opportunity to use their imag- 
inations to design any one of a number of 
crafts. Your imagination is your limit. 

Dark Room— Students have the chance 
to further their photography interests 
through the use of the facilities provided 

Sylvan Computer Room— Sylvan has 
their own terminals so that needy stu- 
dents need not leave the area to complete 
their work. 

Also, the Area Government funds the 
annual N.E. -Sylvan Quad Day Spring 
Concert, and numerous other social ac- 
tivities. All you have to do is just ask 
what's going on!

The alarm clock rings and you wake up 
to another Amherst rainy day. It's really 
drab and dreary out, and your body starts 
convincing your mind that your eight 
o'clock calculus class isn't that important. 
As your body wins the argument, you pull 
your arm out of bed, and start to reach for 
the alarm. Suddenly you scream in pain as 
you open your eyes to observe that your 
hand has smashed into the wall on the 
other side of your Sylvan single. 

Sound familiar? 

It does to anyone who has never lived in 
Sylvan. I never cease to be amazed by the 
comments about the area by the seeming- 
ly thousands of "experts" who have never 
been up there. Yet trying to explain Syl- 
van to someone who has never visited is 
like trying to explain the Northampton 
counter-culture to your parents. 

Sylvan, more than anything else, takes 
pride in its uniqueness. The suite arran- 
gement can either be friendly or intimi- 
dating. Everyone feels a little disoriented 
at first, but when you realize that your 
suitemates feel the same way you do, 
things start to happen. After a while, you 
begin to realize why you put up with the 
verbal assaults from other people on 
campus. Sylvan's lounges quickly become 
your own living room. Like most other 
suites, you have a T.V. on one side of the 
room, and a wall of empties on the other. 
This is your home. This is where you and 
your suitemates will live, work (?) and 
party together for the semester. Shortly 
they're no longer friends, they are 

Yet, in Sylvan, just when you think 
you've seen everything there is to see, 
wierd things start to happen. You discover 
the rest of your floor and the realization 

hits home that every other suite on the 
floor is calling themselves the best suite 
also. After a truce is called, the real fun 
begins. You're now incorporated into a 
true Sylvan floor, ready to do things to 
help you forget what U.Mass, is really like. 
Sylvan is the illegal weekly keg parties 
with your R.A. serving. It's waking up in 
the morning to your suitemate's Van 
Halen and deciding to counter with The 
Who. Ifs having the women across the 
hall sing Christmas carols that echo 
through the hall on Saturday morning— 
and ifs March. Ifs going down to the radio 
station to visit a friend who's doing a 
show, and ending up on T.V. in the station 
next door. Sylvan is also having your 
suitemates telling you what a fool you 
looked like as they watched you on T.V. in 
the suite. 

Sylvan is also convincing a friend at 
2:00 in the morning that the Econ. test she 
bombed isn't the end of the world, even 
though you haven't started studying for 
that 8:00 Calculus exam yet. Sylvan is 
Sylvan beach, complete with thanks to 
whomever provides the music by putting 
their speakers out the window. Ifs going 
to get a snack at the Subway after a tough 
Red Sox (or Yankee) loss and discovering 
that every other fan in the area had the 
same thought. Ifs snowball fights bet- 
ween the dorms at midnight, and raids on 
Northeast. Yet Sylvan is the place where 
you can look in the mirror, and see your- 
self grow day by day, along with your 
suite. For an area that carries a "repu- 
tation" thaf s not bad. All you have to do is 
find out for yourself; but make sure that 
you have a room. After all, you may not 
want to leave!

made my move. Qiiicklv whirling around 
I put everything t had into a swift kick^

I btflled out the door. I could hear the oT 
lady^grab the red phone behind her, and 
calmly speak into it. "Sir, we have some 
'\me^ttempting to escape." As I ran to- 
" wards the main gate, it started to close on 
me. Runni^ as hard as I could, I dived 
towards tRe gate, barely making it as it 
ckised behind me, Zeke and Luke's bullets 
tlaring on all sides. Off their turf, I was 
safe. 1 kept running, not stopping until I 
was s^,:,jn the arms of the Belchertown 
Road bus home, I was safe, but my car 
wasn't. l[JMd(|L> go back, but I couldn't do it 

In the meantime, Luke and Zeke wal- 
ked back to the office, disgruntled. "Sir" 
appeared in the doorway, a massive fig- 

ure, with red skin, horns in the top of his 
head, and the traditional pointed tail. 
"Dt)n't worrv, boy^s, he'll be back. They 
always come hack. Now then, what simply 
Tim I going to do with an arm and a leg? 1 
coukl alwavs make a stew." 

After celebrating my narrow escape at 
the Blue Wall, I checked in the yellow 
;er exorcists. The only listing in 
tfie AmH^st area was a Father Sullivan; 
Kicking myself for procrastinating on the 
Rhetoric paper that was due the next day, I 
went to see him at his home. Father 
Sullivan, as he explained to me, was a 
priest who had majored in exorcism in 
college. He had had a booming business 
earlier, but he admitted that business was 
off. With the twenty percent interest rate, 
no one was buying new houses, and there 
were no new ghosts to exorcise. I thought 
of asking Father SullfVan what else was in 
his coffee besides cream and sugar, but 
decided against it. 

""'''Well son, what seems to be the tro- 

"You're not going to believe this, but I 
have reason to believe that Amherst Tow- 
ing is being run by the devil!" 

"That's right." Sullivan went back to his 
coffee. "Years ago, they put Amherst Tow- 
ing up for sale. According to the charter, it 
had to go to the mosit inhumane group 
around. The Devil, Adolph Hitler and 
Whitmore Administration put up bids, 
but the Devil won." 

"What can we do? I need my car back. 
How am I going to get around?" 

"Well, I'll see what I can do. Do you 
want a standard exorcism, or the catered 

"Please, all I want is my car back." 
Father Sullivan nodded, got up, and went 
back to his desk where he pulled out a 
dusty black kit that would have done any 
Hollywood mad doctor proud. We were 
set for battle. 

But so was Amherst Towing. They were 
waiting for us. We drove up, and the front 

gate openedui^^ 

priest, now dresseg j 

and we left the car ouTM^TTie large iron 

gate closing behind us as we walked in. 

The old woman behind the desk pres- 
sed a button, and a door opened. B.ehind a 
desk inside was"Siii', now minus clothes, 
plus pitchfork. "Cuke, Zeke, come here. 
Make our guests comfortable." As they 
advanced, tht Father reacht'd into his bag, 
producing a small object that he waved in 
front of the two. They jumped back, snar- 
ling, unable to geticloser. 

"Here, Dave, hold this in front of them, 
and they won't hurt you." It was a Triple A 
membership card, and it was working. He 
turned his attention towards Tfie Devil, 
who was obviously unhappy towards this 
sudden turn of events. "We waQ^JaVW^J 
back, and we're going to get it. Now'are we" 
getting it peacefully, or do we have to use 
other means?" 

The Devil paused for a second, and 
looked up. "You don't want to do it — we 
can make a deal. How would you like a 
percentage of the gross, in exchange for 
the boy's freedom with the car?" 

"Not enough. That still doesn't settle 
the matter of a parking permit. He parks 
where he wants." 

The Devil thought again, and remarked 
"Not in a legal spot. He'll need a permit for 
that. Tell yt)u what, though, he can park in 
any tow zone and we'll never nail him." 


"Father, why are_vpu doing this?" I 

"Simple. There sno money in exorcism. 
Amherst Towing is where the big bucks 
are. Now take your car, and get out of 
here." With that, T.-left. Since then, I've 
always parked in tow zones, and I've 
never been touched. When someone 
drives with me, and I park that way, they 
always ask why. My answer is always the 
same, I put my car in tow zones because 
the devil made me do it.

The Truth Behind Susie Sorority 

Currently the fraternity/sorority sys- 
tem on the University of Massachusetts 
campus at Amherst is the largest in New 
England. The system began with the foun- 
ding of the first fraternity in 1869, and has 
grown to a size of eight sororities and 
twelve fraternities. Twelve hundred of the 
25,000 students at UMass are affiliated 
with the Greek system. For New England 
this number is a good percentage — but for 
a University outside of the North the 
number of students affiliated could be 
multiplied by ten. The reason for the 
difference is the stereotyped image of 
Greeks held by students in New England. 
This is supported on the UMass campus. 

A poll was recently taken in the dining 
commons of the Southwest living area. 
One hundred and fifty students were 
questioned about their attitudes towards 
rushing a fraternity or sorority. An overl- 
whelming negative response to rushing 
was given by the students. The reason 
stressed for this response was the desire 
of the students to maintain their individ- 
uality; not wanting to join a "group 


"Group image" is the stereotype view 
of fraternity/sorority life. Common belief 
is that upon entrance into the Greek area 
you lose all your individuality becoming 
"Susie Sorority" and "Joe Fraternity". 
"Susie" is clad in Calvin Kleins and layers 
of LaCoste shirts, she dreams of marrying 
"Joe", who carries beers in his back pocket 
and rips furniture up for fun with his 
"brothers". It is unfortunate that so many 
students believe that "Susie Sorority" and 
"Joe Fraternity" who do exist, are the 
mainstay and the leaders of the Greek 
area on the UMass campus. 

The Greek area contains many student 
leaders working for UMass as a whole, 
and students involved in campuswide 
activities. Blocked by the group image of 
"Susie" and "Joe", is a group of students 
involved in every major offered on the 
UMass campus, students involved in 
many diverse groups and organizations 
and programs, students whose cumula- 
tive average is higher than that of the 

University. The Greek system is an org- 
anization that involves many indivduals, 
for their diversity makes the system str- 
ong in the struggle against the stigma of 
being "Greek". 

The Greek area is fighting and sur- 
viving the battle against its own stereo- 
typic image. The area is not in competition 
with other students and is striving to- 
wards reducing the division between 
"Greeks" and "Independents". The Greek 
area is an organization recognized by the 
RSO and is an alternate living area. We are 
also individuals working for our organ- 
ization and for our school. There are many 
students involved on campus affiliated 
with the Greek area. The goal that the 
fraternity/sorority system is striving to- 
wards is to replace the group image of 
"Susie Sorority" and "Joe Fraternity" with 
an image of outstanding individuals who 
are proud to be associated with a Greek 
system such as the one that now exists on 
the campus of UMass-Amherst.

It was a warm September day when I 
moved into my Amherst house. Quickly, 
amid the slam-slam of the door, I lugged 
my stereo and clothes into the front room. 
It was an easy move; compared to the 
struggles that I had encountered with 
Southwest dorm elevators. My parents 
were there to help, which made moving 
somewhat easier. 

Upon leaving, my father said to me 
"You know Tim, this is the first time in 
three years that I have left you off in 
Amherst without feeling depressed." I 
laughed as they drove off and took a good 
look at my new abode. It was a large house 
with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a 
dining room, a kitchen and a huge fire- 
place-room. "Good for parties", I thought. 
The outside of the house was worn-look- 
ing, with a mortared front porch. It looked 
like the kind of place where someone who 
had lived in John Adams, Pierpont and 
Cance for a total of three years would end 
up. It looked like the Alamo. 

One month later we christened the 

house. The kegs were bought. The furn- 
iture was moved into strategic places. Our 
secret weapon, a band from Long Island 
called Cousin Tony and the Mess were set 
up in the main room. The party was on. 
And what a party it was! Like the Alamo, 
the hoards descended upon us in droves. 
People jammed the house, spilling out on 
to the front yard and sidewalk. We were 

Inside, Cousin Tony played up to the 
occasion; raising the crowd to a high 
pitched frenzy. It was not a face-less 
crowd; many of my close friends were 
there. These were people who I had met 
during my dorm years. It was a pleasure to 
entertain them in my own home. 

My bliss lasted until the next day when 
the Big Clean-Up began. Yes it is fun to 
live in one's own house, but there are 
more responsibilities. up after 
your parties being just one of them. There 
are bills; bills that must be paid or your 
comfortable home can be turned into a 
cave by powerful external forces. There 

are the domestic chores like feeding your- 
self, washing dishes and taking out the 
rubbish— things which were done for you 
in the dorms. Complain as I did about D.C. 
food, I certainly have cooked worse dishes 
than cauliflower casserole. 

At times, my days in the dorms seem 
like Paradise Lost. The dorms were an 
escape from the all too painful reality that 
one must sometimes face off-campus.. 
("What do you mean we're all out of toilet 
paper!"). The dorms were a world of their 
own. I think they can best be described as 
bourgeois communes. That is, people find 
themselves in a situation where to satisfy 
their own individual needs the common 
goal must be served. This is sometimes 
referred to as keg communism. 

Whether you live on or off-campus, the 
most important factor in living content- 
edly isn't where you're living but who 
you're living with. You've got to like the 
people around you. Fortunately, at U. 
Mass. there are a lot of likeable people.

...And Flying Objects 

Bricks are not the only objects that are 
falling from the skies: there are also earth- 
bound meteors that come from dorm 
dwellers who are tryng to communicate 
their feelings with the rest of the world. 
These usually come in the form of pieces 
or entire rolls of toilet paper, all neatly 
landing in trees that make me remember 
Christmas trees decorated with garlands. 
This behavior is not smiled upon by the 
powers that be and, if caught, you can get 
into quite a bit of trouble. 

However, if you're still looking for so- 
mething to throw and you don't want to 
risk dorm probation, some lewd com- 
ments to other dorms will probably get 
enough of a response to litter the general 
area with an assortment of phrases. The 
only trouble with this is that people begin 
to get annoyed and start yelling at you to 
shut up. 

There is one pastime that is popular if 
you like to throw things: frisbee, Softball, 
hardball, football, snowball, lacrosse ball 
throwing (depending upon the season). 
Frisbee throwing is a year-round activity, 
otherwise the events are limited in fas- 
hionability to only the the correct season. 

You can terrorize pedestrians without 
any fear of being yelled at nor will you be 
stopped. If you want to throw a lacrosse 
ball around the pyramids at midnight, 
fine. In fact, if you show any sort of 
proficiency, you can actually yell at people 
for getting in your way. 

As a pedestrian, I have learned to time 
my runs from stairs, to lamp-post to stairs, 
serpentine-style, without getting in any- 
one's way. It has taken me a while to 
develop my style; I have yet to be hit. Also, 
1 don't try to catch any frisbee, no matter 
how close it comes to my ear. Inevitably, I 
try to catch it when a pair is keeping track 
of the number of volleys they can keep 
without missing. 

I really think an insurance company 
could make a fortune covering injuries 
incurred if hit by any of the previously 
mentioned items. I know I feel as if I'm 
taking my life in my hands —I'd be more 
comfortable knowing I'm putting my life 
in the hands of Allstate. 

The only relief from student propelled 
objects is when there is a cold, dry winter. 
Then, litter rustles past you in the wind. 
On a cold, windy winter day. Southwest 
looks like a ghost town in a western 
movie. If s never gotten too bad, though, 
nothing bigger than a garbage pail has 
ever gone past me — boy was I glad I 
ducked that one!

Besides studying, many UMass Students involve themselves in some type of campus organization. There are 
over 400 Recognized Student Groups on campus with a variety of objectives, members and activities. And for many 
students, involvement in these groups means more of a commitment than their academic activities, but the results 
are equally, if not more valuable. 



Why would anyone in their right mind spend more than an 
hour or two in a windowless room six days a week? Collegian 
staffers have been known to go to even greater lengths to get 
the paper on the stands by morning. 

Like the editor in 1975, who, after crashing the car on 
"Collegian Corner" one night got out and ran the three miles 
left to the printers with the next day's paper. 

Or the editor who was awakened in the fall of 1977 by 
police at 4 a.m. only to be told the page one lead story was 
missing. He telecopied it shortly after. 

Other pages have been lost, stolen or betrayed but about 
150 would-be journalists and business tycoons continue each 
year to publish New England's largest college daily 

Over the past 13 years since it became a "daily", what has 
grown to a $350,000 a year business has caused grade 
averages to drop, romances to bloom and die; it has molded 
reporters, lawyers, cartoonists, graphic technicians, 
photographers, business successes and politicians out of 
UMass graduates. 

Ask a dedicated Collegian type why she or he sticks around 
and they probably can't tell you. If s as if there is a magnet in 
the dungeon of the building which pulls you down the stairs 
as you walk through the concourse. 

I swore up and down that I would never hang around with 
the strange people who seemed to live in the office, thriving 
on controversy, pressure and chaos. Yet two years later as a 
newsroom veteran after our recruitment ad appeared ("Hate 
your roommates? Join the Collegian and you'll never have to 
see them again"), I got a phone call asking if it had been my 

What could make four editors drive to the printers thirty 
miles away during the blizzard in 1978? Or five others watch 
the pages of the 1979 February back-to-school issue come off 
the presses at 3 a.m.? 

It must be the fast-paced, high-energy atmosphere. Or the 
typewriters that don't work. Or the strange variety of 
personalities it attracts. Or the pink dots that stick to your 
shoes. It might be seeing your by-lme, or interviewing an im- 
portant person. Maybe ifs hearing someone quote the 
Collegian or having your column start an editorial page volley; 
Or seeing your ad appear 17,000 times. It could be knowing 
your picture captured a lost moment in time, or your cartoon 
made someone laugh. Or seeing what would have been a 
crooked line if you had not fixed it the night before. Or your 
story making someone mad enough to change the system. 
Maybe it is just to escape a roommate. Perhaps it is the daily 
confusion of windowless fluorescence that gets the paper out 
every day. But I suspect it just might be a small miracle.

There's an inevitability about the INDEX yearbook of the 
University of Massachusetts that defies explanation. But as 
long as it appears, for many students and alumni, "all's right 
with the campus." 

Ever since 1869, when Volume One appeared as thirty 
yellowed pages of college and class statistics compiled by the 
four members of the Class of 1870 of the then Massachusetts 
Agricultural College, the INDEX has appeared every June, 
September or even a year after its time. But appear it has. 

Billed originally as "a pleasant reminder of bygone days," 
the book has since recorded the ecstacy and the agony of 
undergraduate life in words and pictures, black and white and 
in color, in paintings and drawings. 

If for no other, the INDEX can attribute its reason for being 
to the fact that it holds proof positive for posterity (and 
parents) that Janie and Johnny have passed through the 

In its heyday, the INDEX has been the largest college 
yearbook (outside of the Service academies) published in the 
United States: in 1968, for example, the print run was 11,500 
copies of 416 pages (including 75 in color) at a cost of about 
$114,000. The 1970 edition was 480 pages (56 in color), 
printed at a cost of $104,000. 

By the time Mass Aggie had been promoted to Mass. State 
College, in 1934, the INDEX had also been promoted to being 
a senior's book, rather than featuring the Junior Class, as it had 
at its beginning in 1869. The book now assured that every 
student would be pictured, with the advent of extensive group 
photos, as well as senior portraits. The student body, in those 
days, was numbered in the hundreds. 

When the first yearbook under the Uitivcrsih/ of Massachu- 
setts imprint appeared in 1947, about 1,200 students were 
enrolled; 279 of the 292 graduating seniors were pictured. 
Every other student was named in class rosters appearing in 
the 272-page volume. By the 1950's, the INDEX had evolved 
into larger volumes, probably because of the increased 
enrollments that by 1960 had reached more than 5,000. 
During the 60's, the INDEX added color photos and intro-< 
duced a new dimension to the campus press. By that time, it 
was the highest budgeted single item in the SATE. 

From its begmning as a statistical abstract of campus Ijfe in 
1869, the INDEX went through periods of emphasing pictures 
and texts. After years of concentrating on the camera as it 
medium, the 1972 book under Editor Walter Sobzak devoted 
more than half its 400 pages to essays on subjects of campus-

Dario Politella, Sobzak published 13 essays, mcluding "Cam- 
pus Humor Is Where You Find It", donated by the instructor, 
who is tTie author of""The Illustrate'd Anatomy of Campus 
Humor" book published that year. 

Student articles included reports on "Crime on the Cam- 
pus" by Linda Roth; "The Great Car Crunch" on parking 
problems, by Robert Soule; and a disquisition on off-campus 
watering places by Ray Blais. 

The tenor of the changing times was recorded with a 2,000 
word review of "Coed Living: They Tried and Like It" by 
Jerald Lazar, who subsequently joined the staff of Esquire 
Magazine. Another piece was the record of the first year of the 
18-year-old vote in Amherst by Carl Greenberg. 

Such success aroused critics.;.\hd in 1968, a member of 
Student Government' who is now a State Legislator, reacted 
by proposing that the Student Senate remove sub'sidies that 
had been hovering at the $100,000 mark. The result was a 
state of rhetoric pro and con- the pro being that it was costing 
the student only $6 for each book that would have to sell for 
$22 if subsidy were withdrawn.

the student senators the message "loud and clear" that INDEX 
was to remain.

area politics. Upon being refused by 1969 Editor Skip Fitch in 
the matter of accepting a senior portrait of his own choice, 
posing and making, the young man demanded of the Student 
Senate an investigation into Fitch's conduct of the editorial 
policy of the yearbook. It appears that Fitch refused to use the 
portrait submitted on the grounds that the subject "did not 
look neat." The senior claimed that Fitch had told him the 
photo was unacceptable to him because in it "I seemed to be 
shitting on everyone else in the senior section of the year-

Service Committee of the Student Senate on July 13, 1969.

Lef s play word associations. I say cheerleader, you say 
pom-poms, dumb blondes, short skirts and go-go boots. You 
probably think of something that resembles a Dallas Cowgirl. 
Yet, ask a UMass cheerleader the same thing, and the first 
word that generally pops into his or her head is work. For, like 
any other physically demanding acitivity, cheerleading re- 
quires continuous practice. 

Those who participate think of it as a sport in itself. Not 
everyone can do it. It requires talent, physical strength, 
stamina, coordination, grace and a great deal of desire. It takes 
a special kind of person to go out onto a windy football field in 
the dead of winter especially when you can't count on all that 
much support from the fans. 

With only a small budget to work with, the cheerleaders are 
limited to what they can do. Yet they still manage to show up, 
perform, and perform well, week after week. If the team isn't 
doing well, remember, you can always enjoy watching the

The Campus Center Board of Governors is a student group 
which is responsible for representing students in the policies 
and operations of the Campus Center / Student Union 
complex. Working with the Campus Center management, the 
Board sets policy for Food Services, the University Store, 
meeting rooms, the Print Shop and other services and 
activities within the complex. 

One of the major responsibilities of the Board is to 
recommend the amount of the Campus Center Fee each year. 
Collected from all students, the fee pays for much of the cost of 
operating the complex, including the large mortgage on the 

The Board also allocates office space to student groups and 
agencies of the student government. 

The Board is composed of undergraduate and graduate 
students. The undergraduate members are elected by res- 
idential area and at large for one-year terms; graduate 
representatives are appointed for one- and two-year terms. 
Any member of the University community may serve as a 
voting member of the Board's committees.

The Student Government Association (SGA) at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts has one of the most advanced 
student government systems in the country. Its membership 
is comprised of all Student Activities Trust Fund (SATF) 
paying students. The SGA's budget is 1.5 million dollars 
which is allocated by the Student Senate to Registered 
Student Organizations (RSO) organizations such as the 
Union Program Council (UPC), which provides some of the 
larger and most sucessful concerts in the country, a portion of 
the transit system. Distinguished Visitors Program (DVP), 
Index, Collegian, SCERA, Legal Service Office (LSO), Veter- 
ans Service Organization (VSO), and several other organizat- 
ions which provide programming for the University Com- 

The presidents of the Student Government Association are 
the only popularly elected officials. The duties of the pre- 
sident involve providing leadership and direction as well as 
day to day management of the Association. The presidents are 
the official representatives of all undergraduates at the 
University of Massachusetts. 

The presidents act with the State legislators. Trustees, 
Administration officials, faculty and students to provide a 
sound governance system which has become a model for 
other schools across the country. 

The Treasurer is in charge of the fiscal accountability of the 
SGA. This individual is extremely important and is respon- 
sible for assuring that all RSO groups adhere to University 
and SGA regulations when it comes to finances. 

The Speaker of the Student Senate is responsible for the 
largest student senate in the country. One senator for every 
252 students is elected from within each dormitory. He or she 
is to moderate the Senate meetings and is to work with the 
internal committees of the Senate. 

The Attorney General is responsible for the student judic- 
iary which is comprised of student judges and advocates from 
the University Community. He/she is responsible for the 
training and coordination of the student advocates and judges 
who conduct area hearing boards for all residential discipline 
cases. The Attorney General also acts as an 'internal control' 
for the SGA, and is involved in writing and researching 
opinions on various controversial topics. 

Being an officer of the Student Government Association 
means that the individual has committed him/herself to 
graduating at least a semester late. The job demands 40 
hours/week at the minimum and the officers receive 
$50.00/week for their services. To be an officer of the SGA, 
one must be dedicated, energetic, knowledgeable and willing 
to realize that school work comes second.

The Student Center for Educational Research and Ad- 
vocacy (SCERA) is a student staffed, professionally coor- 
•dinated center for researching campus problems and actively 
advocating solutions. 

SCERA's goals and programs are reviewed and developed 
annually by a vote of the Undergraduate Student Senate, 
v^hich funds SCERA, according to surveys of student needs. 
These issues are then assigned to "advocacy teams" which 
begin to research the problems and their causes and design 
policy or programmatic solutions. Next, in conjunction with 
student senate committees and student volunteers, a cam- 
paign to implement change is begun which can include 
publicity, governance motions, organizing, lobbying and legal 

The advocacy teams of SCERA cover the following areas: 
residential, town, legislative, rents and fees, campus-wide 
issues, women's, third world and academic. In addition to the 
research roles mentioned above, these teams "watchdog" the 
activities of the university and the state government and 
respond to changes in policy and cutbacks in funding. 

SCERA offers students credit for independent, student- 
interest research projects, and holds occasional educational 
and training workshops. 

SCERA also offers a computer- indexed Resource Center, 
which has an extensive collection of documents and period- 
icals on almost all aspects of higher education nationally and 
at UMass. There is also an extensive collection of resource 
notebooks compiled by the staff which provide information 
on educational issues, governance, fund raising, collective 
bargaining and other matters. 

Veterans Service Organization 

The Veterans Service Organization (VSO) consists of 
concerned individuals interested in extending social and 
professional services to the military veteran population at 
UMass. It offers veterans an opportunity to become involved 
actively in issues and programs which concern them as 

VSO programs are designed to promote the development 
of members' full potential, to integrate personal skills with 
academic work, and to share the knowledge gained through 
past experience with other members of the organization. 
Current programs are structured to emphasize service to 
Vietnam-era veterans and their particular needs. 

Potential areas for member involvement include general 
counseling and referral services in academics, financial aid, 
veteran-related legislation, and housing; pre-enlistment 
counseling; and fund-raising programs. 

The UMass Sport Parachute Club, originated in 1959, 
provides students, faculty, and staff of the Five Colleges the 
opportunity to participate in the unique sport of parachuting. 
Throughout each semester the club sponsors first jump 
courses in the Campus Center followed by ground training 
and jumping a few days after the course. Membership in the 
club offers the advantage of using Club equipment. 


The Committee for the Collegiate Education of Black 
Students (CCEBS) was initiated in 1966 by a group of 
concerned Black faculty and staff at the University. Since that 
time, the program has been committed to recruiting and 
assisting Black, Spanish-speaking, Asian-American, and low- 
income students. CCEBS has concentrated on developing 
programs that will enable students in the program to be 
successful in their educational pursuits and make the neces- 
sary transitions in University life. 

CCEBS rervices are divided into three componenets: 
Academic Services; Personal Counseling; and Graduate and 
Career Development. The components aim to provide 
CCEBS students with special skills courses, tutorial services, 
academic advising, career and personal counseling, and 
economic assistance. 

The Academic Services component assists CCEBS students 
in scheduling and course selection, interprets the University's 
academic policies, provides tutorial assistance, and advises 
students on matters pertaining to their academic records. 

The Personal Counseling component helps CCEBS stu- 
dents in their social adjustments to the University by encour- 
aging them to become involved in existing campus organiza- 
tions, as well as activities sponsored by the program. Through 
the use of Dorm Organizers (CCEBS upper classmen/ women 
who live in dormitories) information is disseminated to keep 
students informed of program matters and aware of the affairs 
of the University. 

The Graduate and Career Development component is 
designed to help program students make educated choices 
about graduate school and post-undergraduate careers. The 
Career segment works closely with other University services 
to lessen student anxiety in selecting a major and choosing a 
career. Specific information about graduate schools and job 
trends and openings is provided through workshops, news- 
letters, and recruiters from businesses and graduate and 
professional schools. 

The CCEBS program is very interested in recruiting minor- 
ity and low-income students who feel college will better 
prepare them for later life. 



The Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group is a 
student- directed, student-funded organization that has 
worked for social change in the Commonwealth since 1972. 
Students have organized local chapters at 16 colleges and 
universities in Massachusetts to confront effectively the major 
consumer environmental, and energy issues of the day. 
Working together with their staff of lawyers, advocates, and 
organizers to restore the balance between individual rights 
and governmental/industrial excesses, students learn a wide 
variety of skills, including research into relevant social issues, 
lobbying and organizing. 

Academic credit can be earned through Mass PIRG activ- 
ities each semester. PIRG's staff attorney teaches a three- 
credit course on consumer mediation through the Southwest 
Residential College Academic Affairs Office, and there have 
been colloquia concerning energy issues. Internships, tai- 
lored to particular interests, are available in all program areas. 

Educating the public on today's important issues is a 
challenge that students have been facing, using the resources 
of Mass PIRG to produce reports, issue press releases, print 
pamphlets, and develop their public speaking abilities. Parti- 
cipation in Mass PIRG activities can provide valuable learning 
experience to enrich your future. 

Who's Who 

Every college and university throughout the United States 
has a select group of students who are extremely active in all 
phases of college life, both academically and extracurricularly. 
They devote much time and effort to activities ranging from 
athletics to student government, in addition to attending 
classes that demand an everlasting amount of time. 

Each year college students from throughout the United 
States are chosen as members of "Who's Who in American 
Colleges and Universities." For the 1979-1980 Academic year 
32 students from UMASS/ Amherst were chosen based on 
their work and contribution to the UMASS system. They are 
Paul J.Amproso, Ann Marie Bolger, Brian Burke, Robert 
W.Cleary, Dana Cohen, Noel F.Collins, Michael Cote, Stacy 
J.Crynock, Pamela A.Daley, Bill Fitzgerald, Lisa J.Foster, 
Kathleen M.Fraser, Christine M.Hailer, Jonathan B.Hensleigh, 
Judith A.Hondo and June Louise Hubbard. 

Also, Anthony Johnson, June M.Kokturk, Ellen Levy, Pat- 
ricia A.Malumphy, Mary Elizabeth Mills, Mary Jane Paika,

Nancy M.Spellman, Suzanne E.Strobel, Jennifer LTaub, 
Deborah M.Tchorzewski, Stuart M.Tobin, Linda Ann Trider 
and Richarci Tuttle. 

Students United for Pubhc Education (SUPE) has been 
organizing students at UMass/ Amherst for nearly three years 
to fight for the survival of public higher education in Mass- 
achusetts. The organization now has chapters at Westfield 
State College and the University of Lowell. SUPE's program 
for political action takes stands on four major issues: 

1) No Budget Cuts: SUPE opposes all cuts in public school 
budgets and demands more money for the support of these 
institutions. The past several years have seen a leveling off of 
funding to the University, which has led to a decline in the 
quality of education, particularly in this inflationary period. 

2) No Public Money to Private Schools: While students at 
public institutions are the majority of college and university 
students in the state, they receive less than 25 percent of 
public scholarship money. Most public money for higher 
education is channeled to private schools in the form of 
federal and local grant, contracts, bond guarantees, and the 
waiving of property and income taxes. SUPE demands that no 
public money be allocated to private schools that most 
students cannot afford to attend. 

3) No Tuition: SUPE starts with the assumption that higher 
education should be provided socially. As the entire society 
benefits from the education of its members, education is a 
social service that should be provided free of charge (besides 
taxes) to all. 

4) Reorganization of Higher Education: SUPE opposes 
plans for the reorganization of public higher education in the 
state that would result in increased specialization of campuses 
or an emphasis on career training at the expense of other 
aspects of education. Access to a well-rounded education is a 
right of all students. 

Handicapped Students Collective 

The Handicapped Students Collective is a group comprised 
of both handicapped and non-handicapped students. Mem- 
bers of the group work together to raise awareness among the 
administration, faculty, and student body of the problems and 
concerns of the University's growing handicapped popu- 
lation, which includes both physical and attitudinal barriers. 

The collective's hope is that through education of the 
community, these problems can be eliminated so handi- 
capped students can become better integrated into all activ- 
ities of University life. 


Nummo News 

Nummo News is the Third World Community newspaper at 
UMass, supplying weekly news coverage by and about Third 
World People. 

Nummo News also serves as a training ground in all aspects 
of newspaper production including reporting, photography, 
graphics and layout. 

LJMas's Transit System 

The UMass Transit Service operates the largest no-fare 
mass transit system in the country. UMass Transit travels 
throughout campus and to many areas in neighboring towns, 
including many apartment complexes. This service is spon- 
sored by the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA), the 
Urban Mass Transportation Association, the Undergraduate 
Student Senate, the Graduate Student Senate, and the Com- 
muter Collective. 

The buses run very freequently on the major routes 
(Campus Shuttle, Orchard Hill, North Amherst, South Am- 
herst, Belchertown Road and Sunderland) on all University 
class days. The Transit Service also provides outreach service 
to and from Belchertown, South Deerfield, Orchard Valley, 
and Echo Hill areas on a less frequent schedule throughout 
the day and evening. All but the on-campus buses run on 
weekends when school is in session, but service is decreased. 


Drum is the semesterly Black literary and arts magazine at 
UMass. It provides an outlet for the artistic talents of the Third 
World community and helps UMass students learn the skills 
required in producing a high quality publication.

An INDEX Card??? 

Student Auto Workshop 

"What is an 'INDEX card'???" 

Are you one of the many who has asked that question when 
you purchased your yearbook? The fact is that the INDEX staff 
is hounded with that question by hundreds of students every 
year -- Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. 

The 'INDEX card' is simply an IBM card with the letters 
"INDEX" typed In block letters which indicates that a student 
is entitled to a yearbook for the academic year during which 
the card is received. All Sophomores and Juniors who have 
attended classes full time during the past Fall and Spring 
semesters and have, therefore, paid the SATF (Student 
Activity Tax Fund) fee for both semesters receive the "INDEX 
card" along with their"CLEARED card" in the Fall registration 
packet. (Seniors do not receive an "INDEX card" since the 
yearbook is free of charge and mailed to a forwarding 
address). Since the yearbooks usually do not arrive until the 
following academic year, you must keep the card in a safe 
place or forfeit the yearbook. So remember, hang on to your 
card -- it will save you a lot of aggravation. And when it comes 
time to purchase a yearbook, you won't have to ask "What is 
an 'INDEX card'???" 


AHORA is the organization of the UMass Spanisti-speak- 
ing community. Members of the group work to recruit 
Spanish-speaking students to the University, promote educa- 
tional programs directed toward careers and job placement, 
and help counter the language barrier and cluture isolation. 
AHORA is also dedicated to eliminating discrimination in 
student admission and to improving relations between Span- 
ish-speaking and other members of the University com- 

Student Senate Lecture Notes Program 

The Student Auto Workshop enables students to do auto 
repairs on their cars themselves rather than taking their cars to 
commercial service stations. 

The workshop maintains a number of spaces in the Campus 
Center Garage in which to do work, and has a large number of 
tools for use in the workshop area. There is also a staff of 
mechanics to give advice. 

The Student Senate Lecture Notes Program offers students 
edited transcriptions, in note form, of a selection of the larger 
lecture sections. The notes are taken by Student employees of 
the program. 

The notes can be purchased on a single lecture basis or on a 
subscription basis for a half- semester. Information on prices 
and the sections for which the notes are offered is available in 
the Student Union. 

The program also provides offset printing and photo- 
copying service for student groups at reasonable prices. 

Student Government Association 

Every undergraduate who pays the Student Activities Tax 
Fee (SATF) on the fee bill is a member of the Student 
Government Association (SGA). Being an SGA member 
entitles a student to join Registered Student Organizations 
(RSO's) and to vote in student politics. 

The SGA also attempts to provide a strong voice for student 
interests both within the University (with the faculty and 
administration) and outside it (with the state government.) 

Campus Travel Center 

The Campus Travel Center offers UMass students all the 
services of a professional travel agency, including car rentals, 
domestic and international air reservations, rail travel for the 
United States and Europe, group travel plans, cruises, youth 
hostel passes, charters, bargain trips, camping holidays, hotel 
reservations, tours and bus charters. 

Also located in the Campus Center is a Ticketron Outlet, 
which has tickets for concerts in most of Newr England. 


TIX is a student-run box office created for the purpose of 
alleviating long lines to such events as plays, dances, lectures, 
and concerts. TIX also sells tickets to movies on a daily basis. 
The events TIX provides tickets for include those put on by 
such student groups, 'as the Union Program Council, the 
Distinguished Visitefrs Program, and the Third World Theater 

Union Video Center 

The Union Video Center is a non-profit, professional- and 
student-staffed video production group and media center. It, 
offers regular video production training workshops to give 
students "hands-on" experience with television production 
and an introduction to the potential of the video medium. 

Other center activities include regular production projects 
for closed-circuit and/or cable television distribution, a video 
guest lecture series, the annual video Sidewalk Exhibition 
Series, weekly critique sessions and more. 

The UVC Video Tape Library contains more than 100 hours 
of programming on topics ranging from video art to social 
documentaries to music. The center is open every weekday 
and students are welcome to drop by. 

Legal Services 

If you need legal assistance in any matter ranging from a 
question about a lease to a divorce action to a criminal offense, 
the Legal Services (LSO) may be able to help you. 

LSO provides legal counsel and representation for fee- 
paying students and student groups at the University. Stu- 
dents are requested to call and make an appointment with the 
staff for consultation on any legal problem handled by the 
office. LSO does not handle real estate transactions, will- 
drafting, profit-making business concerns, fee-generating 
cases, or disputes between students. The staff provides advice 
and representation in matters of a civil or criminal nature as 
time and resources permit. The attorneys and paralegals also 
provide students with preventive/educational information. 

If the LSO cannot represent a student for any reason the 
staff will make a referral to local counsel. 

Craft Shop 

The UMass Cratt Shop is a place where all students, 
beginners and experts alike, can work in a number of different 
crafts. Free instruction and use of tools and equipment are 
provided in jewelery, leather, pottery, stained glass, photo- 
darkroom, woodworking, silk screen, pewter. The only 
charge is the cost of materials. 

Campus Center / Student Union 

The Campus Center/ Student Union complex is the hub of 
campus activity for most UMass students. Not only are most 
offices for student groups located in the buildings, but a 
variety of services and businesses are there as well. 

Food can be obtained in the Campus Center at the Coffee 
Shop, the Blue Wall, the Top of the Campus restaurant, or the 
tenth- floor "Quickie Lunch." In the Student Union are Earth- 
foods and People's Market (see entries in the "Living" 
section), and the Hatch cafeteria. 

The Candy Counter, inside the front door of the Student 
Union, sells newspapers, candy, and popcorn. 

The Campus Center has guest rooms for more than 200 
people, used largely for conferences. There are reduced 
student rates for hotel rooms. More information is available at 
the accomodations counter on the third floor. 

The University Store, on the concourse level of the Campus 
Center, sells general merchandise from greetng cards to 
clothes, with a wide selection of magazines. 

The concourse is often lined with tables, where students sell 
various hand- made items or offer information on political and 
social activities. You must sign up for tables on the concourse 
in advance at the Campus Assistance Center next to the Blue 
Wall (545-0012). 

The CC/SU is also the center of drinking activity on 
campus. The Blue Wall has long been a famous watering hole, 
and the Top of the Campus Lounge offers a more elevatec^ 
drinking atmosphere. Some nights the Hatch is converted 
into a night club with live entertainment. 

Outing Club 

The UMass Outing Club is people introducing one another to 
the outdoors. The prime idea of the club is to allow people to 
enjoy themselves in the company of other people who share 
common interests. Club members plan and lead trips of many 
types, including hiking, canoeing, kayaking, caving, cross- 
country skiing and many more. Material support comes from 
the University Student Activities Fee, from membership dues, 
and from rentals of the large and diverse inventory of 
equipment. Guidance by experienced members helps to 
make the club an exciting way to become familiar with the 
surrounding world in its natural state. 

Increasingly, the club is becoming involved with com- 
munity service efforts such as trail maintenance, sponsorship 
of trips for the handicapped and invitation to disadvantaged 
children on trips. 

Trips are many and varied. Although most of the destina- 
tions are within New England there have been trips to the 
Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Virginia, Mexico, Canada and 
Peru. Anyone can participate in an Outing Club trip, but being 
a member enables you to enjoy the free use of all equipment. 
Membership is open to anyone affiliated with the University 
and to others with special invitation. So keep in mind: the club 
always looks forward to seeing new taces.

Ski Club 

The UMass Ski Club, headed by the offices of President 
Brad S. Cohen, Vice-Presidents Vernon P. Aisner and James 
C. Chambers, Treasurers Steven Glaser and Kenneth Silver- 
stein, and Secretaries Roxanne Edwards and Mark Enright 
Coyle, is one of the largest organizations on campus. The 
club's aim is to provide skiing at its lowest possible cost. 

Ski trips were run for a week in January and on Saturdays 
during the 1980 Spring semester. Funding for the trips is 
earned by the club at its annual ski sale held for four days 
every November. All possible makes, styles and brands of 
equipment and clothing can be found substantially dis- 
counted at the ski sale. This year over 200 volunteers, under 
the supervision of 17 chairpersons, helped to make the 1979 
sale another huge success, which in turn led to an exciting ski

UPC Productions, Union Program Council, is a student- 
run, non-profit organization which brings a wide variety of 
entertainment to the UMass/ Amherst campus throughout the 

The highlight of the school year for UPC, and the rest of the 
campus, is the annual Spring Concert, held in May in Alumni 
Stadium. The show, which is one of the largest college musical 
events in the nation, attracts more than 30,000 people each 
year. The 1980 concert featured the popular AUman Brothers, 
Bonnie Raitt and Lonnie Liston Smith. In 1979 UMass 
students were treated to the Grateful Dead, Patti Smith and 
Roye Ayres, UMass undergraduates attend the show free, 
which is sponsored by proceeds from guest ticket sales and

We are the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps, better 
known as AFROTC here at UMass. Our detachment, located in 
Dickenson Hall, is comprised of about 1 50 cadets. Freshmen through 
Seniors, Cadet Airmen Basic to Cadet Colonel. As a group we 
conform to a uniform standard appearence, yet we are as diverse as 
the entire UMass population. This homogeneity, we believe, lends 
the greatest strength to the corps as a whole. 

Closely associated to AFROTC are two other organizations, 
Arnold Air Society and Angel Flight. Arnold Air Society, commonly 
known as AAS is comprised of AFROTC cadets. AAS is dedicated to 
the service of UMass and the surrounding communities. 

The other organization. Angel Flight or AnF (yes, we have 
shortened names for everything), is a women's organization de- 
signed to support AFROTC and AAS. The women do not have to be 
cadets; AnF serves as a liason between the general populace and 
AFROTC and AAS. Although very small. Angel Flight is growing. 
We look forward to growing larger and stronger as the years 

We all come together for our own reasons, but we have a common 
goal: learning about ourselves and developing leadership qualities. 
Some cadets complete the four year program or the two year 
program for juniors and seniors and become officers in the U.S. Air 
Force. Not all cadets stay with AFROTC. We all agree, however, that 
AFROTC is a great learning experience, and we all gain many things 
from it: friends, fun, experiences, challenges, knowledge about 
taking and giving orders, and most of all, knowledge about our-

This has been one of the most successful years in the twenty 
year history of the Distinguished Visitors Program. Our 
program is completely funded and operated by the under- 
graduate students of UMass for the purpose of keeping the 
University community sensitive to the world in which it exists. 
We have strived to fulfill this goal by bringing to campus those 
persons whose experience in international and domestic 
affairs, the sciences, the humanities, and the arts qualify them 
to interpret, explain and raise questions about life in all its 
dimensions. Furthermore, DVP seeks to stimulate critical 
debate and thought by presenting a balanced range of opinion 
with respect to a given issue. 

This year we highlighted our program with the visit of Jane 
Fonda and Tom Hayden in the Curry Hicks cage before 4.000 
people. We had Bill Lee and Andrew Young in the Fine Arts 
Center before packed houses. Also on our agenda were such 
interesting lecturers as Chaim Potok, Reverend Arthur Lang- 
ford, Jr., Barry Commoner, Angela Davis, Pedro Serviat 
Rodrigues, William Shawcross, Freada Klein, Ulrike Welsh, 
Bruce Ritter, and an Israeli-PLO forum. DVP has also funded 
various special series such as International Women's Week, 
Abortion Week, Martin Luther BOng Week and the Duke 
Ellington Music Series.

Union Stereo Coop 

The Union Stereo Coop offers information about stereo, 
maintenance and repair, and can help you in purchasing a 

Because of its low overhead, the coop is able to offer stereos 
and accessories at prices just above wholesale. All that is 
required to purchase something from the coop is the initial 
membership of $5, and an annual fee of $2 thereafter. 

Sports Coop 

The goal of the Sports Coop is to offer quality sporting 
merchandise at reasonable prices. Located next to the Post 
Office in the Student Union, the coop is open weekdays 
during the school year. 

The coop is run by student volunteers. Although many of 
the volunteers are Sport Management majors, all students are 
encouraged to volunteer. 

The equipment sold by the coop includes racquetball 
equipment, sweatsuits, sneakers, gym wear, basketballs, soc- 
cer balls, tennis balls, baseball hats, table tennis equipment, 
dartboards and hockey sticks. 

Support Your 


Earthfoods is a group of people striving to provide each 
other with a ii\eai\ir\gful Uvelihood withir\ a collective envi- 
ronmer\t while providing the UMass community with 
wholesome vegetarian food. 

We feel that this is important given the conditions in 
society where we find ourselves not in control of our materi- 
al and spiritual lives. The University being a microcosm of 
society at large, we see how little control we have over where 
we live, what we learn, what we eat, and how we make the 
money to put ourselves through school. 

For us, then, Earthfoods is multidimensional. First, it is a 
collective, wherein we try to regain control over our work- 
ing lives. This is done by making all decisions about the 
restaurant and our work together as a group united in its 
fundamental goals and committed to working out our dif- 
ferences and problems in an open, caring manner. This is 
called "consensus decision making." We meet as a group 
weekly to make all decisions about Earthfoods; there are no 
bosses or managers. 

By learning to relate to each other as brothers and sisters, 
rather than employees and employers or similar oppressive 
roles, we can grow to a deeper understanding of our com- 
mon interdependence and need for one another as caretak- 
ers of this earth. Cooperation amongst all people is neces- 
sary for the material survival of this planet as well as a 
means of lifting ourselves out of the spiritual desolation 
that now prevails. 

Western Capitalism, technology, and agribusiness has 
robbed food of its cultural and physical nourishment. At 
Earthfoods we're trying to get back in touch with a basic 
need, food. In preparing wholesome vegetarian fare, we 
attempt to nourish ourselves better by respecting our bodies 
and the ecosystem. We provide good food at prices as low as 
possible. As an alternative economic group, we obtain our 
food almost entirely through coops, thus reinforcing the 
coop movement in general. 

People's Market 

People's Market, located in the Student Union, is a non- 
profit, student-operated food store that offers fresh, natural, 
and healthy items at low, convenient prices. These low prices 
are a direct result of the Market's low overhead and minimal 
student wages. Baked goods, dairy products, fresh produce, 
cheese, and whole grains are bought from local vendors and 
area coops to ensure the lowest prices possible. 

Photo Coop 

The University Photo Coop, located across from the Stu- 
dent Union Post Office, exists primarily for three reasons: to 
make low-cost film, paper, chemicals and film processing 
available; to serve as a gathering place for persons with an 
interest in photography and/ or business; and to provide 
hands-on experience in sales, accounting and advertising. 

The coop carries a wide variety of film, paper, chemicals 
and photographic supplies. Both Kodak and Berkee pro- 
cessing is available. Membership is not required for any 

The coop also maintains an area for advertisements or 
announcements concerning photography and a library of 
photographic supply catalogs and photographic magazines. 

Bicycle Coop 

The UMass Bicycle Coop is a non-profit organization 
concerned with providing a variety of bicycle services to 
the Five College community. However don't rush down 
to the Student Union Building to buy a bicycle at the 
Bicycle Coop; they sell bike parts and accessories at affor- 
dable prices, provide repairs, give advice on equipment, 
and provide work space and tools for self-made repairs. 

Because of their cooperative structure, they are able to 
supply customers with good products at low cost. The 
constant support from students and the community has 
also aided in low prices and the expansion of the services. 

Membership entails at least two hours of work for the 
coop each week. There are a variety of tasks which will 
fulfill this obligation. Membership entitles students to 
purchase parts at lesser mark-ups than the retail mark- 
up. Also, management and bicycle maintenance skills 
can be acquired by being a part of the coop.

A Visit From Russia... 

One of the highlights of this season's 
concert series at the Fine Arts Center 
was the Moscow Pops, featuring the 
Nekrasov Russian Folk Orchestra with 
members of the Bolshoi Theater and 
the Kiev Ballet. 

An explosion of Slavic culture went 
off from the stage as stars of the theater 
performed such folk songs as "Troika," 
"Song of Stenka Razin," and "On the 
Fields." Gold medalists in ballet 
Ludmilla Smorgachevna and Sergei 
Lukin performed "Russian Dance" 
from Tchaikovsh/s Szvan Lake. 

In gratitude for the warm, excited 
welcome their first American audience 
gave them, the orchestra, dressed in 
Russian folk costume, performed three 
popular native American songs. 


A much anticipated favorite was the 
annual visit of the Boston Symphony 
Orchestra, conducted by Seiji Ozawa. 

Ozawa received overwhelming ap- 
plause from the near sell-out crowd as 
the orchestra began Beethoven's Sym- 
phony No. 5 in C minor. His slight 
body flowed rythmically with the mus- 
ic, the mood broken only by the cond- 
uctor's sporadic spastic movements. 

Charles Kavalovski performed Mo- 
zarfs Horn Concerto No. 2, followed 
by the orchestra's deliverance of Rav- 
el's Bolero. The mutual respect bet- 
ween Ozawa and his listeners was 
obvious as both conductor and orch- 
estra labored furiously to create a trans- 
cendent piece. The audience's grati- 
tude was offered in the form of three 
curtain calls and a standing ovation. 

The Julliard String Quartet also 
added to the cornucopia of cultural 
offerings in the fall semester. 

...And From Poland 

The Polish Chamber Orchestra 
made UMass the first stop of its 
premiere tour of America, performing 
with world renowned harpsichordist 
Igor Kipnis. 

Organized at the Warsaw Chamber 
Music Festival in 1972 by conductor 
Jerzy Maksymiuk, the orchestra has 
toured Europe and taken prizes at 
many competitions. 

The highlight of the performance 
was the playing of the ten foot long 
bright crimson and gold harpsichord 
by Kipnis.

The Union Program Council's pro- 
duction of Bonnie Raitt will be remem- 
bered as one of the finest performances 
experienced in the Fine Arts Center. 

Bonnie and her band stopped by 
Umass on a promotional tour of her 
latest album, "The Glow," and glow 
they did. Throughout the ninety minute 
performance, she delighted the sellout 
crowd with her charm and spright- 

Bonnie was very much in touch with 
her audience throughout the set, and 
even made some references to a few 
local people and events. She dedicated 
"Angel of Montgomery" from her 1974 
"Streetlights" album to "all the women" 
in the valley "and the men they love." 
She also dedicated " Give It Up" to the 
anti-nuclear activists who have been 
who have been "keeping nuclear power 
out of this part of the country." 

Basist Freebo and Guitarist Will 
McFarlene sang a duo with Bonnie on 
John Hall's "Power" in which they sang 
"that poison atomic power" be replaced 
with "the restless power of the wind, 
the warming power of the sun and the 
comfort of a wood fire." 

Ms. Raitf s proficient guitar,outstan- 
ding vocals and unreserved candidness 
made the audience feel they were really 
taking part in the event. She portrayed 
such honest emotion on her beaming 
face and in her stirring vocals that the 
crowd was brought to their feet dan- 
cing. Tunes like Robert Palmer's 
"You're Gonna Get Whafs Coming" 
and her encore performance of "You've 
Been In Love Too Long" exhilerated the 
crowd and brought Bonnie the ovations 
she deserved. "This has been the best 
show of the tour so far," said Ms. Raitt 
before her third encore in which she 
played "Home" from the "Sweet 
Forgiveness" album. As she left the 
stage for the last time she told the elated 
fans "See you next year."

Van Morrison's performance in tht 
Curry Hicks Cage before a sellout 
audience could be described as having 
been no less than a classic. 

Morrison captivated the crowed all 
evening from his opening number 
"Kingdom Hall" to his closing 

Most of the show included his 
newer material from his latest effort, 
"Into the Music" and his 1978 release 
"Wavelength," Much to the pleasure of 
the audience. He also performed some 
of his older classics such as 
"Moondance," "Tupelo Honey," and 
"Brown Eyed Girl." 

It was a lively set and the band 
seemed to enjoy themselves through- 
out the concert. The audience showed 
their gratitude with a five minute 
standing ovation that followed 
Morrison's final encore "Gloria."

New wave music was represented on 
campus this fall by the Talking Heads 
who played to over 2000 followers in 
the Fine Arts Center. 

Perhaps the most prominent group 
of this particular style, they opened 
their concert with "Artists Only" and 
continued with several choices from 
their newest album, "Fear of Music." 

Guitarist David Byrne led the group 
in one of the Head's hits from 1977, 
"Psycho Killer," to which the audience 
responded electrically. 

The encore to their fifteen-song set 
was "Life During Wartime," the Head's 
newest single, and their popular "Take 
Me to the River."

Jazz trumpeter Jimmy Owens be- 
lieves business and pleasure do mix. 

Owens conducted lectures and 
workshops about jazz and the business 
aspects of music at UMass in 

"This is a business," he reportedly 
said in the UMass Alumnus. "You've 
got to be disciplined and responsible if 
you're going to succeed." 

During his two-and-a-half day visit at 
his alma mater, he also gave musical 
demonstrations and performed at a 
concert to benefit the UMass Music 
Scholarship Fund. He discussed a 

broad range of topics, including the 
difference between the jazz tradition 
and the European classical music tra- 
dition, and the business aspects of the 
music industry. 

Jimmy Owens' Plus, his band, with 
members Jerry Jemmot on bass, Eric 
Johnson on guitar and Billy Hart on 
drums, performed the benefit concert 
with Professor Fred Tillis and the 
UMass Jazz Workshop. 

Owens received his master's degree 
in education from UMass in 1976, and 
with Billy Taylor and Chris White, 
began the University Without Walls 

Program. He played with Taylor's band 
for three years on the David Frost 
Show. Owens also established a non- 
profit performance and educational 
organization called Colletive Black Art-

Perhaps the most successful and entertaining play- 
presented on campus this season was the world premiere of 
"Just Friends of 1923/' performed six nights to a sell out 

...OF 1923" 

A product of the UMass Music Theatre Guild, the hilarious 
"Just Friends..." was created by UMass students. Peter 
Niemczura, a former UMass English major who wrote the 
play, composed the music, wrote the lyrics, and even 
designed and made an impressive collection of "roaring 20's" 
outfits. The story about a crazy wealthy widow and her two 
children was produced by senior Tony Magner, directed by 
Peter Tolan, and choreographed by junior Mark Kittlaws and 
sophomore Lois O'Brian. Cory Grolman was musical 

"Just Friend's of 1923" proved to be an excellent showcase 
for our student talent. 


UMass dance students celebrated 
the Board of Trustees autumn approval 
of the Dance Major with a concert in 

The first number, "The Polovetsian 
Dances/' choreographed by Gary 
Schaaf, i began aggressively as tribal 
women idaijiced with clenched fists and 
determiriecl faces, but they soon melted 
into a ri'ood of beauty and seduction 
with the alluring dance of a temptress 
and her slave women. The men who 
appeared as warriors danced with both 
strength and grace. 

A delightful selection of music ac- 
companied the dancers in the second 
piece, "Never Long Gone." Ranging 
from Brubeck's "Unsquare Dance" to 
the sounds of a pelting rainstorm, the 
number carried the characters grace- 
fully from one theme to the next. Bold- 
colored costumes, original lighting and 
innovative choreography gave this cat- 
chy piece an amusing quality. 

"If You Want To" made every one 
want to. This sensual jazz dance, to the 
Brubeck and Jarreau versions of "Take 
Five", impressed the audience with its 
geometric movements and classy, slick 
style. Student Paul Nunes' choreo- 
graphy and participation in the number 
proved the highlight of the concert's 
first half. 

Andrea Watkin's piece, "Past Dance, 
Past Dancers", juxtaposed synthetic, 
electronic music on the emotional 
memories of the male dancer, Joe Rich. 
A machismo male, with the femininity 
epitomized by three beautiful women, 
gave one the feeling of separation and 
emotional mitosis. Joe Rich and Bonnie 
Novack carried the piece by their inter- 
change of flirtatious smiles. 

The final piece, choreographed by 
Richard Jones to "Carmina Burane", 
was based on a manuscript found in a 
Bavarian monastery. The script, written 
by 13th century students, dealt with 
life, love, anger, joy, desire and destiny. 
And the portrayal of these in dance ~ 
by a cast who took on its roles so 
convincingly —was tremendous. The 
beauty and pageantry, the quality 
choreography, and the high-caliber 
performance of the dancers formed an 
exciting conclusion to a magnificent 
final concert. 

Using more dancers for larger pro- 

ductions and marking strong perfor- 
mances by Paul Nunes, Andy Mark- 
ham and Gene Niles, this UMass con- 
cert will long be remembered for its

Without his whiteface, and mime 
costume. Marcel Marceau can none- 
theless command an audience with his 
soft spoken speech. 

While being interviewed backstage 
at the Fine Arts Center where he had 
just performed to a capacity audience 
for the third consecutive year, the univ- 
ersal master of mime said in a rich 
French accent, "The youths of America 
have the greatest interest and energy 
and the greatest expectations.. .they are 
good." He continued, saying, "The am- 
bition is evident from the enthus- 
iasm at the shows. It is very important 
because after all, the youths of America 
will be the leaders of the world." 

Marceau believes there has been a 
"mime craze" in America in recent 
years. "In just twenty-five years I have 
toured fifteen times in the United 
States playing all legitimate theaters in 
New York, Detroit, Chicago, and Los 
Angeles, and the one-night stands thr- 
ough the years. When the explosion of 
the young generation came, then our 
art became popular more and more. 
When I come to this country, I am 
aware that I am responsible for the 
renaissance of mime in the theater 
today. There was in France a tradition 
of mime but not in America." 

first step in his mime education. His 
proved proficiency led him to be cast in 
many sucessful roles, and to tour with 
the group he formed, Compagnie de 
Mime Marcel Marceau. Besides confer- 
ring upon him the highest honor, mak- 
ing him "Chevalier de la Legion d'Hon- 
neur", the French government has also 
given Marceau a grant to help him run 
his International School of Mime wh- 
ere students can learn the "art of sil- 
ence". Over seventy students from all 
over the world are taught, by fourteen 
instructors, pantamime, acrobatics, 
modern mime, fencing, modern dance, 
jazz, experimental theater, theater wor- 
kshops and mime theater. 

Marceau has produced thirty mime 
dramas and has just completed two 
programs for the Public Broadcasting 
System. "The public knows me only 
from my shows but I am also a director 
and mime theater is important," he 
remphasized. When asked about tele- 
vision today, Marceau commented, 
"Television is not very good today. 
People stick in front of it because they 
have nothing else to do. There was a 
time when television was very good, in 
the beginning. Then there was compe- 
tition, but not now." 

Other interests of Marceau's include 

painting and writing and he would 
someday like to make and direct films. 
He attributed his energy to his hard 
work when he said, "I am in my fifties 
now and I am physically fit and I think it 
has nothing to do with my disciplined 
life. The fact that I play three-hundred 
performances a year keeps me fit like a 
man of forty-five. I am less exhausted 
than young people who take drugs, for 
instance, who perform. I get high on 
my work." 

In his program, Marceau had per- 
formed selections from his repertoire 
of "Bip pantamimes", portraying a cha- 
racter that he created in 1947. In a 
striped pullover and beflowered opera 
hat, Marceau did "Bip Travels by Train" 
and "Bip Plays David and Goliath". 
Marceau describes his amusing char- 
acter as the alter ego. "He is part of 
everyman...he is like when Don Quix- 
ote strikes against windmills which is 
what we do in real life. We look for a 
better life always. When the young 
people identify with me then Bip is a

Marceau has appeared on television 
with Red Skelton, the Muppets, Johnny 
Carson and Merv Griffin, to name a 
few, and he says, "Ifs exposure of 
course, but it will never be as efficient 
or as beautiful as the current stage. We 
don't only do universities. We play 
outside the legitamate theater and in 
other cities like Dallas and Houston 
and we draw capacity crowds.. .three 
thousand people a night. Ifs not like a 
rock concert but ifs quite fantistic for 
the theater to play such a role in life." 

Marcel Marceau was born in Stras- 
bourg, France, and was inspired at an 
early age by silent screen artists Char- 
les Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harry Lan- 
gdon, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. 
Enrolling in Charles Dullin's School of 
Dramatic Arts in Paris in 1946 was the

Percussionist and part-time UMass 
professor Max Roach knows how to 
make the best of a bad situation. The 
truck carrying equipment broke down 
en route from New York, where 
M'Boom Re:Percussion, his group, 
made up of Roy Brooks, Joe Chambers, 
Omar Clay, Fred King, Ray Mantilla, 
Warren Smith and Freddie Waits had 
performed the previous night. The cur- 
tains opened after a delay and the Fine 
Arts Center audience received a rare 
introduction—listening to the adjust- 
ment of sound apparatus. 

Roach, who has been teaching here 
since 1972, followed with a synopsis of 
his musical career. In person, the mus- 
ician could easily impersonate a sociol- 

ogist. A jazz drummer at 16 for Duke 
Ellington, Roach thinks American mus- 
ic is unique. 

"We are not a homogeneous society, 
but America does have a personality 
that transfers itself," he said. "Music 
reflects us," he continued, "not only in 
jazz but in blue grass." For example, he 
learned while traveling that despite a 
Black-American's ability to dress like 
an African the different nationalities 
were apparent. "A Black-American," 
he said, steps higher when walking 
while an African, who wears sandals, 
walks more horizontally." 

He said this American identity is a 
result of "fluidity". "It is a wonderful 
thing not to live in a static countrv, not 

to have monolithic figures," he said. 
"America," he added, "has yet to succ- 
umb to tradition like other societies. 
Each generation has a chance to brea- 
the new ideas — some will be junk; 
others will not." 

Roach, himself, has been part of the 
musical flux. He has worked with jazz 
greats like Duke Ellington and Charlie 
Parker, has been part of the bebop era 
and the 60's upheaval. He has per- 
formed at the White House, arranged 
music for Broadway productions, and 
M'Boom has recorded its first album for 
Columbia Records. 

"Now," he said, "I am enjoying all the 
fruits of those years."

Portraying "Sergeant O'Rourke" on 
one of the most successful syndicated 
shows in television history is just one of 
many credits Forrest Tucker has earn- 
ed in his long entertainment career. 

Tucker talked about the theatre in a 
backstage interview before going on as 
"Cap'n Andy" in the revival of "Show- 
boat", part of the Fine Arts Center's 
"Theatre Weekend" offerings in April. 
"Theatre is in trouble. Fortunately, the 
dinner theatres are saving it, It's been in 
trouble for a lot of reasons, mostly eco- 
nomic. But I think that like anything 
else, it will survive if we just use our 

Tucker started out in burlesque in 
the early thirties in Washington, DC. 
He says, "It was a great way for a young 
man to start ~ sing a song or two, tell a 
joke or two - and watch pretty girls 
take off their clothes!" At a Hollywood 
party in 1939, what began as a joke 
"screen test" soon landed him a part in 
"The Westerner" with Gary Cooper. It 
was the first of many western roles that 
he played after World War II when he 
completed his duty as Second Lieuten- 
ant in the Army Signal Corps. 

Tucker's over six-foot robust form 
filled the small dressing room, but as he 
spoke of his fame the large man was 
humble. "I don't have any ego bit or 
stardom or all that jazz. I've always 
thought of myself as a person, a father, 
a grandfather, a friend. I never had any 
desire to be a star; that never entered 
my mind. I enjoy what I do, if s more 
important to be a person than to be any 
thing. I want to be remembered as a 

to have gotten shabby instead of classy. 
What they've done apparently, what's 
been my observation, is that they've 
tried to hire people that are available at 
very small salaries, just bodies. There 
are people on television today that 
have had little or no training." Reminis- 
cing, Tucker continued, "In the old 
days we had Red Skelton, Jack Benny, 
Jimmy Durante. I'm talking now about 
really classy entertainment. It seems to 
me they've gone to the dollar sign and I 
think television has suffered by it... I 
don't see much chance of it getting 
better. That's just my personal opin- 

"F Troop" suffered the same demise. 
Despite what he said regarding fame. 
Tucker delivered this statement. "Larry 
Storch and I are two very gifted come- 
dians. The show was a hit and we were 
cancelled when we were number four 
in the Nielsen ratings. The boys in the 
ivory towers make the decisions and I 
think that ninety percent of it must 
have to do with economy." 

Tucker talked about his popular role 
as Sergeant O'Rourke "a big blustery 
strong man" but "the dumbest guy in 
the group." "I was a con man". Tucker 
admits. "I always got my come up- 
pance, they always got even with me so 
it made the character someone the 
audience could enjoy. The underdog, 
human nature makes us root for the 
underdog, whether if s a football game, 
a basketball game or a baseball game, I 
always root for the weak team. If s an 
American tradition." 

The difference between television 

whether I am doing a good job, 
whether they are buying it, whether the 
acoustics are good, whether the band is 
too loud. Here the reaction is immed- 
iate — if there is something going 
wrong then I can fix it." 

Cap'n Andy in "Showboaf ' is the pa- 
triarch of his theatrical family. He lays 
down the law, gives advice and figures 
out ways to get around his henpecking 
wife, Parthy. "I play him a little bit 
differently, but I like Cap'n Andy, he's a 
nice man. He's usually a little man 
dominated by a big wife but they can't 
find a wife big enough to dominate me 
so we've had to make a few adjust- 
ments. You can't imagaine me being 

Tucker also noted that the associat- 
ion between blacks and whites in the 
show was initially created with the 
attitudes of 1927 when the story was 
written. Tucker says, "What I've tried to 
do is humanize the relationship bet- 
ween myself and the black people who 
work on the boat and ifs working 
pretty good." 

Even with a long show business 
career behind him that at times had its 
low points. Tucker has abided by the 
same ideal — "I can't remember the bad 
things that have happened to me, I 
remember only the good. I am maybe 
the most optimistic man in the world." 
This hopeful sexagenarian leaned for- 
ward to make a point, his blue-gray 
eyes reflecting memorable moments in 
entertainment history - "Ifs interest- 
ing to observe and watch and listen and 
enjoy. There is enough grief and 


human being, not a list of theatre 

Tucker had much to say about the 
condition of television today. "It seems 

and the theatre. Tucker explained, is 
partially the audience. "I can tell every 
night if I'm getting to them after the first 
three or four minutes. I am aware of 

trouble in the world as it is. Enjoy. That 
is the word I would like to stress.

^t 40 years old. Chuck Mangione is 
charged with as much energy as a 4- 
year-old. Anyone who has seen him 
perform can attest to that and Man- 
gione did not let his fans down at a 
sold-out concert with his quartet at the 
Fine Arts Center. 

Mangione, with Chris Vadala on sax- 
aphones and flutes, Carl Lockett on 
guitars, Charles Meeks on bass and 
James Bradley on drums, held their 
audience spellbound as they played 
pieces from their albums "Children of 
Sanchez", "Bellavia" (a tribute to 
Chuck's parents), "Feels So Good", 
and their newest A&M release "Fun 
and Games". Even to non-jazz enthus- 
iasts, Mangione's music is certainly 
well-known as a result of the 1980 
Winter Olympics at Lake Placid. At an 
interview after the concert. Chuck re- 
lated that many years of persistence 
stand behind his current success. 

"'Feels so Good' (which now has 
double-platinum status) didn't happen 
for us until two years ago. I never felt 
like we had made it, we were very 
thankful that we were making it every 
day without having to make a new kind 
of music." Mangione slouched a bit in 
the dressing room chair after an ex- 
hausting two and a half hours on stage, 
but his face was still animated, especial- 
ly when asked about his position as 
king of the jazz hill. 

For Mangione there was a long climb 
before making it to the top. He was not 
born playing a flugelhorn as many 
would believe but first played the 
piano at age eight. Two years later he 
began studying the trumpet and 
through his parents' dedication to their 
children. Chuck and pianist brother 
Gap were taken to many concerts and 
local clubs. A partial list of those who 
dined and jammed in the Mangione 
living room includes Dizzy Gillespie, 
Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley and 
Ron Carter. Chuck regards Gillespie as 
his "musical father" since he had the 
greatest impact on his early career. 
Mangione attributes the African/Latin 
sound in some of his music to Gillespie. 

Like most young adults. Chuck had 
definite goals that he set out to achieve. 
In 1963, he received a Bachelor of Arts 
degree in Music Education from the 
Eastman School of Music. It was there 
that he first studied the flugelhorn 
before he went on to teach elementary 
school for one year in his hometown of 
Rochester, New York. Chuck moved to 
New York City in 1965 and began 
freelancing with the bands of Maynard 
Ferguson and Kai Winding before 
playing trumpet for Art Blakey and the 
Jazz Messengers for two and a half 

Chuck's recording of his "Friends 
and Love" concert led to a recording 
contract and a 1971 Grammy nomina- 
tion for "Hill Where the Lord Hides". 
He soon earned international acclaim 
and his success continued to swell with 
subsequent albums and his first 
Grammy Award in 1976, after seven 
nominations, for "Bellavia", beating 
Henry Mancini, Earth, Wind & Fire, 
and Stevie Wonder, who were among 
the nominees. 

Mangione confessed his love for 
Amherst and was glad of the warm 
spring weather on this, his second visit. 
"I enjoy coming here but I honestly and 
truly have a very hard time playing in 
this hall," he regretted. "I don't think 
the sound for us is especially terrific 
because of the cement walls but the 
people always seem to make up for it." 
Mangione wore a red t-shirt and puple 
velveteen pants and, of course, his 
infamous hat. "No, I don't always wear 
it, see," he lifted it for a brief peek at his 
sparse pate, "but it was a gift in 1970 
and pictures got taken with it arid it 
became a good friend." 

Despite the late hour, Mangione's 
warm personality radiated from his fa- 
tigued lithe figure. When asked his 
advice to a talented young person with 
a promising career, he knit his eye- 
brows and made a steeple of his hands 
beneath his bearded chin. "I think you 
should get yourself as together as pos- 
sible, though I don't know which way 
that is. For some people it means col- 
lege. For some people it means being 


around some of your creative people. 
The way music was for me I wish I had 
taken advantage of more educational 
opportunities that I had when I was in 
school. I had decided everything that I 
was going to do and school at that time 
was not something I was particularly 
interested in so I withdrew from study- 
ing a lot of courses." 

Mangione shifted nervously as his 
manager popped her head in to remind 
him that he was due to sign autographs 
in two minutes, but he continued. 

"Sometimes when you're that young 
and that sure of everything you're kind 
of foolish. I knew exactly who I was 
going to marry, what my religious be- 
liefs were, what kinds of food I liked, 
what kind of music I was going to be 
playing and all that turned out to be a 
whole different thing. I try to tell 
people to stay as open-minded as pos- 
sible for as long a time as possible and 
to be like a sponge and taste everything 
and then spit it out if you don't like it. 
You've got to be real nonchalant," he 
advised. "Don't make any personal 
commitments at a real early age that 
would prevent you from pursuing 
something that would be more creative 
or fun, rather than having to choose 
between the local jazz gig at the book- 
club down the street or the Italian 
wedding or Jewish bar mitzvah be- 
cause they pay more bread. At that 
point in your life you're just getting 
into college and if you don't make it by 
the time you're twenty-one you think 
the world is going to end." 

Chuck Mangione's ascendency to 
such titles in 1978-79 as Jazz Artist of 
the Year, Instrumentalist of the Year, 
Top Fusion Artist, Top Producer, Top 
Instrumentalist, Outstanding Jazz Art- 
ist and International Jazz Award Win- 
ner has created tb,e same problem that 
plagues all celebrities; the loss of anon- 
ymity. "It's nice that a whole lot of 
people like the music. I think it makes it 
easier for us to move around, to pick 
what we have to do,Jo pick where we 
are going. If s list so much fun to have 
to deal with not being accepted as just a 
basic b-flat person. If s just that people 

make a deity out of you when you are 
the same person you always were. It 
gets pretty hard to just walk down the 
street or go to a ball game or be like 
everybody else, but I'm certainly thril- 
led that people are enjoying our 

Over 900 million people who 
viewed the Winter Olympics at Lake 
Placid on television enjoyed Mang- 
ione's music. After hearing the quar- 
tef s "Children of Sanchez" concert two 
years ago, ABC News and Sports Pres- 
ident Roone Arledge commissioned 
Mangione to compose music for the 
1980 games. Chuck dedicated "Give It 
All You Gof to "the spirit of the 
Special Olympics." He did so as a result 
of seeing ABC's TV coverage of the 
1979 International Summer Special 
Olympic Games, a program of physical 
fitness, sports training and athletic 
competition for mentally retarded a- 
dults and children, held in Brockport, a 
suburb of Chuck's hometown. After 
their UMass concert, the quartet was 
headed for Brockport to give a benefit 
performance. Mangione said, "I am 
very fortunate to have known at an 
early age what I wanted to do and I've 
been doing it for a long time. There are 
a lot of people in life who wake up 
every day and face some incredible 
challenges. I think those people have a 
special challenge and they exemplify 
that I try to do the best that I can." 

Just as he believes in pleasing his 
fans with signing autographs, perhaps 
to help prove that he's not a god. Chuck 
believes in playing live music for 
people. "I think a concert is a musical 
live experience that takes people away 
from all the madness they deal with, 
especially instrumental music. It allows 
people to use their imaginations. I wish 
more musicians would give live con- 

Whether referring to his own work 
or giving counsel to other dreamers. 
Chuck Mangione believes that the best 
way to realize those dreams is to be 
patient and "Give It All You Got".

A Jack of No Trade ##• 

For Tony Magner, the highlight of 
his multi-faceted artistic career at 
UMass was producing the world pre- 
miere of "Just Friends of 1923". Mag- 
ner, an Arts Management major 
through BDIC, said the play "brought 
together for me every aspect of the 
theatre, and yet I didn't feel the need to 
have to be on stage performing. I was 
involved in so many areas and learn- 
ing so much that I saw performing in its 
own context within the theatre. I saw 
how my contributions were affecting 
the rest of the production." 

Tony's contributions to the UMass 
Music Theatre Guild (UMTG) inclu- 
ded working with the Guild's board to 
form a production staff, to develop a 
design concept and to formulate a bud- 
get. He also faced the inevitable red 
tape. "I learned who could spend what 
type of monies and how to deal with 
the University really well through RSO 
and their finance system." The most 
important element was the successful 
publicity campaign that Magner and 
the Publicity manager worked out dur- 

ing the summer previous to the show. 
"After that it was just overseeing all the 
directors, designers, making sure they 
were doing what they had to do.. .and 
an awful lot of human relations and 
smoothing over ruffled feathers." 
Magner impishly grinned and cleverly 
referred to "dealing with artistic egos, 
of which there were a lot in that show. 
I'll put it that way." 

Magner went on to explain the ad- 
vantages of producing a world pre- 
miere. "We could do pretty much what 
we wanted to and there were not any 
real restrictions. We wanted to enter- 
tain by making fun of all the old 20's 
and 30's musicals that were pretty diz- 
zy, but in the end, very basic." 

Tony was also manager of the Uni- 
versity Chorale in his senior year, f^ 
full-time job in itself, he was kept bu 
planning spring tours, raising funds, 
arranging concerts and putting toget- 
her the European tour. This year the 
Chorale will travel to Italy right after 
final exams. "With the help of one of 
the board of directors we solicited bids 

from companies that arrange the tours 
and had to work out the best kind of 
arrangements they could give us for the 
best concerts and sight-seeing trips all 
under a certain amount of money." 
Besides the bargaining, Tony had to 
oversee the functions of publicity, at- 
tendance and equipment management. 

Somehow, the energetic Magner 
found time to work as an intern with 
Barbara Aldrich, Concert Manager for 
the Fine Arts Center. "My prime func- 
tion here was to co-ordinate the usher 
staff and house managers, making sure 
there were enough on duty for every 
show, and also enough people to work 
the bars and concession tables. I was 
also taught to work with the contracts 
for different performers who came to 
the Hall and amend them (the con- 
tracts) so they worked for different 
state. University and Concert Hall 

Through his specialized program, 
Magner "tried to get an idea of what if s 
like to be backstage and onstage, out in 
front of the house." Onstage he has per- 

But Master of Two 

formed with the University Chorale 
and the UMTG and has conscientiously 
taken many arts related courses that 
have fit into his major. He says humbly, 
that after a one-semester ballet course 
he was "not a Rudolph Nureyev, nor 
am 1 bound to be." Hopefully, his 
bulging sack of experience will help 
him get into "the business". What 
James Anthony Magner is referring to 
is working for a theatrical management 
firm that represents artists, performers 
and touring companies, preferably a 
firm in New York. "If I can't get a job 
with them I would consider working 
for a large concert hall in some art 
related program but obviously I would 
not limit myself because of the job 

Tony Magner, tall, blonde and attrac- 
tive, exudes professionalism whether 
discussing theatre management or his 
work on the performing side of the 
bright lights. About his role as Bill 
Sampson in the spring UMTG produc- 
tion of the Tony Award winning play 
"Applause", he says, "I love perform- 

ing and I think the reason I do it is for 
distraction, it is the way I enjoy myself 
It's a lot of work with rehearsals every 
night. There are so many things you 
have to take into consideration, but to 
me it's just a lot of fun." Of his lead he 
says, "1 never had a role like that before 
which is the straight, pretty much laid- 
back leading man who stands around 
and smiles. He was a character who is 
hard to make interesting because he 
didn't do anything that's fun to watch 
so 1 had to learn a lot about projecting. I 
also had to learn to act as a foil to the 
leading woman." 

According to Magner, theatre has 
survived in the television and movie 
age because performers on a stage can 
make the members of the audience feel 
as if they are in the same room, on that 
same stage, instead of sitting in a dark 
room. "Theatre is an event that requires 
the audience to think. The whole aspect 
of the art is that the production is 
presented so that you can effect a 
response from the audience. You're not 
there on stage for yourselves. You gear 

yourselves towards the audience and 
you try to give something as well as 
pull something out of them. If s a parti- 
cipation sport, versus TV where so 
many people allow themselves to sit in 
front and be entertained." Referring 
back to the theatre, he said, "Hopefully, 
you'll reach new realizations or be 
brought to some further level because 
of it." 

Magner has performed in UMTG's 
"Anything Goes" as well as in fellow 
UMass student Peter Tolan's musical 
revues, but for him producing "Just 
Friends of 1923" was "the highlight 
because it hit all levels. The problems 
were that much more frustrating but 
the highs because of it were that much 
more rewarding because of the accom- 
plishment. We made a great deal of 
money and more importantly, of 
course, the audience loved the play. 
You know, that doesn't always

UMass theatre goers can best re- 
member Denise M. E. Boutin as Margo 
Channing in the UMass Music Theatre 
Guild's production of "Applause". 
Lauren Bacall received a Tony as Mar- 
go for her Broadway performance in 
1970. A Communication Education 
major from East Longmeadow, Boutin 
said, "I made it a point to not hear the 
record or read her (Bacall' s) book." It's 
easy to play Lauren Bacall and to do it 
well,"she added. 

Although Boutin, 23, has performed 
in the Guild's "Two Gentlemen of 
Verona" and "Just Friends of 1923" as 
well as in Peter Tolan's musical revues, 
she would prefer to direct. She said she 
enjoys being on the stage, receiving the 
applause, but she does not like the six 
weeks of rehearsal. She stresses that 
acting is "a lot of work" as well as 
"exciting". Acting, she said, is more of a 
craft than an art, and one has to learn 
the craft first. The craft includes "learn- 
ing how to project and carry yourself. 

which takes time and experience." 

When on stage, she knows immed- 
iately when something goes wrong. "1 
monitor it," she said. The audience, she 
continued, affects the play. In "Ap-

cheered at the dramatic moment when 
Margo's boy friend refuses to marry 
her. She said she had to keep the

Peter James Tolan has accomplished 
something at UMass that very few 
people have been able to do. It is not 
unusual for fellow students to app- 
roach him and say "You don't know me 
but I think you're pretty funny." What 
has this 21-year-old junior from Scit- 
uate done thafs so special? He has 
written, produced and appeared in 
four comedy revues in one semester, 
aside from his other productions in the 
Five College area during the last few 
years, as well as having participated in 
other University shows. He has made 
his name not only notable but also 
synonymous with rare entertainment. 

The uniqueness of Tolan's reviews 
can be attributed to his interest in 
American musical theatre and impro- 
visational comedy. Combining the two, 
he writes sketches dealing with topics 
his student audiences can relate to and 
laugh about. From parent concern a- 
bout their freshman son's colossal 
phone bills to crumbling buildings on 
campus to ridiculous-beyond-belief 
commercials, Tolan touches all bases. 
"I like performing the most but I also 
get a kick out of writing. Thafs the 
reason I did the revues. How many 
chances are you going to get to do some 
of that stuff in the show? If s so weird. 
You're not going to get to be a dog or 

anything else around here because 
there are no improvisational groups." 
In his "spare time" Peter is a stand-up 
comedian at the Comedy Connection 
in Boston. "Thafs a hard thing - bang, 
bang, bang, gag, gag, gag," he says of his 
love for going on stage and dealing 
with a hypothetical situation. 

"A lot of people who come to see the 
shows have a good understanding of 
American musicals and I do full paro- 
dies." Tolan uses short commercials 
and TV oriented material. "The whole 
thing about the revue", he explained, 
"is how much you know before you go 
on. The big laughs are a result of 
recognition." Tolan described how his 
shows are created. "I've written sket- 
ches during intermissions. Once I got 
an idea on the bus and ran home to type 
it. I write best at night, though, and 
usually do from midnight until 5 AM 
for six straight days. I don't even know 
what order the show will be in until two 
days before." Though he is a treasure of 
original ideas himself, Tolan often ac- 
cepts suggestions offered to him by his 
cast, includes current events, and in 
addition to his original music, rewrites 
Broadway scores. 

After one of his latest revues the 
dream of many talented young artists 
came true. A representative of the 

Brave New Theatre Workshop, and 
improvisational group from Minn- 
eapolis, thought Tolan was funny and 
asked him to join the company. "I'll 
start off sweeping floors or if they don't 
have any I'll build them", said the 
dedicated performer, "but I don't care 
because I trust my talent." Famous 
alumni of the Workshop include Alan 
Arkin and Alan Alda. About the suc- 
cessful television show M*A*S*H To- 
lan says, "if s the same kind of writing 
because they write with cast support 
and they improvise a lot. The show has 
no plot but they deal with really human 
things." The critic was liberal with his 
praise when he said, "Thafs a good 

Like most students today, Peter's 
general attitude toward the tube is 
negative. "There are some good things 
but in proportion if s such a waste of 
good media. They could do so much. I 
don't watch it that often, but I guess 
"Mork & Mindy" is a good show. I saw 
that just because it was refreshing." He 
admires Robin Williams, the show's 
star, because he can improvise and talk 
to the audience and get laughs after 
laughs. "Thafs why I'm looking for- 
ward to going to Minneapolis: because 
if s improvisational." 

Peter's early influences were Grou- 


cho Marx - "He's quick. If you don't 
pay attention then you miss the punch- 
line", and Jackie Gleason — "I used to 
love his show. His mannerisms are so 
perfect. I do a lot of reading about him... 
just the way he moves, such subtleties." 

Though he has been going to school 
on and off for four years and has a year 
and a half to go, Tolan is taking another 
indefinite leave of absence for his Min- 
neapolis opportunity. He's had about 
as many majors as the University offers 
and at last check was into Communica- 
tions Education. "Graduating is for 
students", he believes, and the only 
reason he is here at all is to please Mom. 
"I certainly understand that today you 
need a degree. I respect the ability of 
someone to keep their nose in the 
books but at the same time there are not 
many people who can do what I've 
done." Before leaving he will produce 
four shows with his Young People's 
Summer Theatre in Scituate. "I like 
working with kids. They are willing to 
do more without complaint.. .they don't 
have the prima donna thing." 

Tolan offered some constructive cri- 
ticism of the Theatre Department. 
"They have a problem," he began. 
"They are into teaching educational 
theatre but they are not entertaining 
the public." During the Spring semes- 

m Ffi 

ter the University Ensemble Theatre 
performed "Hedda Gabler", "Amor- 
euse", and "Knights of the Round 
Table." "They do old, old plays that are 
dug up out of some trunk that no one 
our age knows about or goes to and 
then the department wonders why 
they can't get students to come to their 
shows." He did have a few nice things 
to say. "All the acting staff are very 
good. Doris Abrams and Ed Golden are 
great and the directors are good. The 
technical people over there are very 
well qualified but there is such a great 
concentration on it that they overlook 
the performance aspect." 

A question that doesn't make it to the 
front often enough to reveal the mo- 
tives of great minds is "Why?" About 
his writing ana producing Peter Tolan 
humbly commented, "It isn't necessary 
but it fills a void. I don't want to pat 
myself on the back but it was a pretty 
good idea snd I think people will miss 
it. Nothing the Collegian does that is 
humorous succeeds. This is life. You 
have to go and listen and think. If s just 
a good time and thaf s why I do it." His 
interviewer extracted a slow "Yeah, I 
like the applause" from him. "I sit there 
and I write a joke and say if they get this 
I'll be thrilled. If they don't there's 
always another one." 

About his future, Tolan has practical 
ideas. He would like to do legitimate 
theatre but does not feel that he is dis- 
ciplined enough right now. In these 
days of high unemployment, he's 
mainly interested in working steadily 
and not so much in being rich. At first 
he denied that fame was relevant, but 
after a brief pause he straightened his 
slouched posture and produced a con- 
fident grin. "Yes. I guess part of me 
would like fame. People keep saying, 
'I'm coming to your first Broadway 
show' and I just humor them and laugh. 
But I know that I will do it. I am pretty 
talented when I assess myself, without 
being pompous." 

When most scrawny freshmen 
would have gone home after harrass- 
ment by brawny residents of a South- 
west tower, Peter ]. Tolan fought the 
Housing Office and survived. "I'm glad 
I came to UMass because here my 
cocoon was broken. I didn't come here 
saying someday I'm going to conquer 
this place and everyone will know who 
I am, but I did and thaf s the moral of 
the story. Now I have to do it in 
Minneapolis all over again. Ifs a bit 
stiffer competition but there is the chal-

Three sonatas and two encores later 
virtuoso violinist Pinchas Zukerman 
said: "Music is not something we have 
to do. We do it to fufill a need." The 
need, he explained, is analogous to 
living two days in the desert without 
water. Performing alleviates his thirst. 

Whether entertaining a near-capac- 
ity Fine Arts Center audience with 
pianist Marc Neikrug or signing auto- 
graphs afterwards, Zukerman is relax- 
ed in his pursuit. 

In an even voice he said, "Ladies and 
gentlemen the piece (W.A. Mozart's 
sonata in E-flat major) we just played 
was in E-major. We'll play E-flat when 
we come back next year." 

"Pinky" also casually dismissed a 
London Times review praising him as 
"absolutely without peer amoung viol- 
inists." He replied, "It felt good that 

A child prodigy originally from Tel 
Aviv, Zukerman responded to a con- 
cert goei^s question as well— "What was 
the brand of your first violin?" 

"Sears Robuck." 

Violinist Itzhak Perlman came, saw 
and conquered. On April 16, 1980 he 
perfoimed one piece, a violin concertti 
b\' the 19th century Sibelius, with the 
Springfield Ss'mphony Orchestra and 
receix'od one standing ovation. 

Those applauding who wore not fa- 
miliar with Perlman's music had prob- 
ably seen his face before. The week 
prior to visiting the Fine Arts Center

"VVonderfiil, next question," was the

was particiilarh' honored because only 
two iT Ihroe classical performers at 
most are featiu'ed \'earl\- on the maga-

Fine Arts Center audiences were 
doubly treated in early February to a 
rich repast of modern, classic and ro- 
mantic compostions performed by the 
Frankfurt Radio Symphony and special 
guest pianist Ruth Laredo. 

The concert opened with Conductor 
Eliahu Inbal leading the symphony 
through "Three Dances of the Tritons" 
from the ballet "Undine". German 
composer Hans Werner Henze was 
commissioned by the Royal Ballet of 
London in 1956- to write the music for 
its tribute to Margot Fonteyn, with the 
ballefs plot derived from a famous 
story written in 1811 by the German 
Romantic novelist and dramatist De La 
Motte Fouque. 

Hailed as one of the world's foremost 
pianists, Ruth Laredo performed with 
the Symphony in their second piece, 
Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2, first 

presented in 1795, in her unique style 
of crouching over the keyboard. The 
Symphony demonstrated its ability to 
execute a variety of music with equa' 
perfection in the third piece, Dvorak's 
Symphony No. 8 in G Major, described 
as breathing "the very spirit of the 
composer's native Bohemia." 

The Frankfurt Radio Symphony has 
become noted throughout Europe for 
its precision recordings and impressive 
repertoire which ranges from the Ba- 
roque to the Modern era. Between 
concerts and recording schedules the 
Symphony includes an average of 120 
to 160 works and besides its broadcasts 
from Frankfurt it has performed in 
Paris, Rotterdam, Vienna, Warsaw, 
Geneva and Bratislava. This marked 
the Symphony's first tour of North 

In a windy backstage wing of the 
Concert Hall, Inbal and Ms. Laredo 
offered their feelings about their ca- 
reers. The conductor, who had just led 
the Symphony through the last of its 
eleven-city engagement, said that since 
he was twelve years old he knew he 
wanted to follow this profession. In 
giving advice to college students inter- 
ested in composing and conducting, 
Inbal may as well have been Polonius 
speaking to Laertes when he preached, 
"Know yourself and your talents. Don't 
be influenced by reviews or criticisms." 
And with the same dynamic facial ex- 
pressions he wore while leading the 
orchestra he emphasized, "Be honest 
with yourself!" 

Ruth Laredo, called America's "First 
Lady of Piano", was born and raised in 
Detroit, Michigan and attended regu- 
larly as a young child the concerts of 
the master Vladimir Horowitz. She has 
appeared as a soloist with almost every 
major American orchestra and is re- 
garded as the epitome of pianists on 
three continents. Aside from her more 
serious work of having just completed 
recording for Columbia Records the 
complete piano works of Rachmani- 
noff, Ms. Laredo said she loves per- 
forming for the public and especially 
college audiences because they are the 
most lively. In 1976 she earned a 
Grammy Award nomination for her 
album "Ravel", and also holds the 
honor of being named first artist-in- 
residence at West Point Military 

UMass is "Wild About Eubie!" 


The exclamation point in the show's 
title was an understatement to the high 
energy performance given by the tire- 
less flapper-style singers and dancers 
of this jubilation of the work of Eubie 

The 97-year-old composer was the 
first Black-American to break through 
the White dominated world of the mus- 
ical stage back in 1921. Since then, 
Blake has written over 1500 songs incl- 
uding 5 musicals. He came out of retir- 
ement when sucessful movies as "The 
Sting" created a renewed interest in 
ragtime music. 

"Eubie!", the first hit musical of the 
78-79 Broadway season presented 25 
songs including "Memories of You", 
"In Honeysuckle Time", "Charlestown 
Rag", "Dixie Moon", "Shuffling Alo- 
ng", and the popular "I'm Just Wild 
About Harry", adopted by Harry Tru- 
man as his presidential campaign song 
in 1948. 

The upbeat non-stop performances 
by an incredible cast left the Fine Arts 
Center audience "Wild About Eubie!" 


Bowker Auditorium, its audience 
and surroundings received blessings 
from the Buddhas when the Asia So- 
ciety's Performing Arts Program and 
the UMass Arts Council presented in 
March the Royal Dancers and Music- 
ians from the Kingdom of Bhutan. 

The Sacred-Drama Dance, enacted 
by these performers from the small 
country nestled between India and 
Tibet, is an important part of the coun- 
try's religious and social life. Not all of 
the dance-dramas require masks. Ac- 
cording to traditional religious beliefs, 
people who either perform the ritual 
dances or view them will receive good 
fortune and prosperity as well as be 
spiritually redeemed by the Tantric 
deities and be protected by the guard- 
ian deities. The government of Bhutan 
is supporting the effort to preserve this 
ancient tradtion for future generations. 

A novel idea that proved suc- 
cessful was the Fine Arts Center 
Special Program in the Arts pre- 
sentation of a two-hour workshop 
entitled "Producing and Touring. 
Large Scale Musicals" in collabo- 
ration with the staff of "Show- 
boat" during Theatre Weekend in 

From the coffee-and-doughnut 
reception in the University Art 
Gallery, the group of interested 
faculty, students, area residents 
and children moved to the fourth 
section of the Concert Hall to hear 
Director Stone Widney and co- 
producer Lesley Stewart of Gin- 
gerbread Productions, Ltd. ex- 
plain the uniqueness of the 
"Showboat" set while the stage 
crew worked in the background. 
Putting a riverboat on stage, they 
explained, has been cleverly ac- 
complished by including all the 
sets of the play in a book set 
which resembles a box on a hinge, 
folding and pivoting to reveal new 
scenes. Because the play was to 
be performed six nights a week 
since October, each time in a dif- 

ferent city, the set had to be 
adapted to all sizes of stages. The 
night before, Stewart related, the 
crew was in a panic when they 
were unable to fit the paddle 
wheel through the stage doors of 
a high school. 

"Oftentimes," Stewart contin- 
ued, "sound becomes a problem in 
large houses." The Yamaha the- 
atre organ the production used 
filled the concert hall adequately 
during the tour's two perfor- 
mances at UMass. The custom- 
built organ combines the banjo 
and calliope, and woodwind, brass 
and string instruments, and it 
eliminates the difficulty of travel- 
ing with a full orchestra. It pro- 
vides the base and fills in where 
the eight musicians and conductor 

After this orientation the work- 
shop shifted to Room 44 where 
Arthur Niedick, Professor Emeri- 
tus in Theatre and Speech, moder- 
ated a discussion on musical the- 
atre. When asked where musical 
theatre was headed, he answered, 
"It is going as far as the imagina- 
tion of the person." He was sur- 
prised at the workshop turnout 
and said, "What's remarkable 
about this occasion is that direc- 
tor, producer and choreographer 
of the show are all together." 

Director Widney had flown in 
from London ahead of time where 
he had been meeting with Alan 
Jay Lerner. He began by saying, 
"Theatre is a particular pride in 
our country." He defined a musi- 
cal's purpose as "making an en- 
tertainment." The musical itself is 
"a wedding between the the bur- 
lesque of the twenties and the live 
opera of Vienna", said the director 
who had been consultant to Geore 
Cukor on the movie "My Fair 
- Lady". 

"Showboat" was first per- 
formed on December 27, 1927 and 
is regarded as "the birth of ma- 
ture American musical theatre." 
Almost fifty-five years later a 
crew of students, carpenters and 
electricians worked from 6:30 am, 
and would continue until 2:30 am 
the next morning, handling the 
set and lighting for this still popu- 
lar play. 

After a morning of learning 
about the behind-the-scenes go- 
ings-on of a traveling musical, as- 
piring actors, actresses, directors 
and producers in the audience 
were advised by UCLA-educated 
Widney to "press on for a long 
time in your craft with your ama- 
teur enthusiasm and someday 
you'll become a professional."

Henrik Ibsen's poignant play 
"Hedda Gabler" was stunningly pro- 
duced and performed by the Univer- 
sity Ensemble Theatre in March. 

The story's setting is a villa on the 
outskirts of a Norwegian town where 
Hedda, portrayed skillfully by Melissa 
Keeler, must struggle within herself be- 
tween her present stifled position in an 
admirable marriage, and pursuit of 
happiness at the cost of sacrificing soc- 
ial respectability. David W. Farland 
played Jorgen Tesman, Hedda's doting 
scholarly spouse, with Jere Burns in a 
forceful performance as the outcast 
Ejlert Lovborg. 



Ibsen's work presented a challenge 
for the theatre group. Not only did the 
actors become personally involved 
with the characters but so did the 
audience as Hedda's madness peaked. 
Directed by Calvin Maclean, this play 
relates a theme that is still fresh in view 
of women's changing role today. 

Seething. Shining. Soaring. Sonifer- 
ous. Spirited. Special. All are apt adjec- 
tives describing the UMass Music 
Theatre Guild's production of "Ap- 
plause", the 1970 Tony Award winning 
Broadway musical written by Betty 
Comden and Adolph Green. 

Stocked with some of our best talent, 
the Guild told the story of aging stage 
and screenstar Margo Channing, 
played by Denise M.E. Boutin, who, 
despite a caustic tongue can't do much 
about Eve Harrington, a conniving, 

aspiring, young actress who manages 
to take over Margo's roles, playwright 
and boyfriend. Eve was portrayed by 
Johanna Brockelman of Smith College, 
while Tony Magner performed 
smoothly as the youthful Bill Sampson. 
Sophomore Scott Cunningham pro- 
vided comic relief in his role as Duane 
Fox, Margo's hairdresser and close 
friend. His unexpected facial expres- 
sions and mannerisms kept the aud- 
ience on its toes. No musical is com- 
plete, of course, without its chorus 

which in this case represented dancers 
known as Broadway Gypsies who drift 
from show to show. Led by Dorian 
Ferrari Lerner, the company executed 
with shyness and zeal the choreo- 
graphy of Cynthia Duvall. "Applause", 
the second UMTG production this year 
was produced by Mark Darrow Kittlaus 
and directed by Bob Stafursky. Peter J. 
Tolan, familiar to UMass audiences, 
conducted the orchestra. 

The UMass Music Theatre Guild, 
established over forty years ago when 
the University was still an agricultural 
school, was originally the Operetta 
Guild and presented the works of Gil- 
bert and Sullivan. By the late 40's the 
group began performing musicals and 
changed their name in 1970. Also since 
then, the totally student-run organiza- 
tion has been financially self-sufficient, 
relying on revenues earned from each 
production to fund its operation.

Jerry Garcia performed two sets dur- 
ing his return to UMass and in both got 
the crowd up boogieing in their various 
Grateful Dead attire. Some pople anti- 
cipated Rachel Sweet as an opening act 
but she was replaced with a surprise 
performance by lyricist Robert Hunter. 

Pat Metheny played his own special 
brand of jazz guitar during his group's 
appearance here and surely satisfied 
the demand for jazz in the Valley. 

Lene Lovitch, "the High Priestess of 
New Wave", filled Bowker auditorium 
on March 13. Various modes of New 
Wave fashion were on display and 
everyone knew which one was the 
Lucky Number. 

UMass alumnus Taj Mahal enter- 
tained a packed house at the Student 
Union Ballroom during Black History 
Month. Blues, folk, jazz and reggae 
were the order of the evening as Taj 
demonstrated his versatility and skill. 









With the year filled with many outstanding news events it was no easy task filtering out the ones of significant 
importance. The only inevitable thing about these events is that they will become history, or they will continue 
indefinitely and new ones are sure to occur in the future.

Elections on Campus 

Richard La Voice and Richard 
Moran were elected in March to 
fill the positions of student body 
president and student member of 
the Board of Trustees. 

La Voice, a legal studies major 
from West Springfield, made 
UMass history by being elected 
for a second consecutive term of 
office -- that of the student trus- 
tee. However this board has since 
been disbanded due to a new bill 
creating a single administration 
for all public colleges and institu- 
tions in the state. 

Moran, an accounting major 
from Holden, takes tl»e position 
of president with experience as a

Campus Repairs 

Are the students paying? 

A $10 million steam plant. A $16.5 million library. An $18 million hotel, restaurant, 
student union complex. A $4 million parking garage and an $18 million Graduate Research 
Center. What do all these buildings have in common? They were all built in the early 1970's 
and are all experiencing major architectural problems. The problems range from faulty 
ventilation to leaky roofs to falling bricks. The most outrageous is the $10 million heating 
plant which broke down a few months after completion in 1974 — it sits there today, unused. 

After spending $66.5 million creating these faulty buildings the University has finally 
decided to take action against the engineers. The base of the problem seems to lie in the 
maladministration and corrupt awarding of State building contracts from the State House. 

Meanwhile the students are suffering from the consequences of the faulty buildings - the 
most dramatic is the closing of the University library. The students are also suffering from 
increased college costs and their parents from increased taxes - all to go into more faulty

The presidential campaign trail has made its 
way to the UMass campus. The Campus Center 
concourse was lined every day with student run 
campaign tables. Early in the year it looked as 
though George Bush and Ted Kennedy shared 
the student support at the University. Both 
political camps had many active student cam- 
paigners who canvassed on weekends in dif- 
ferent states. As the year progressed however, 
the support for both Kennedy and Bush lessened. 
Now evident was the campaign to get John 
Anderson on the ballot as an independent. The 
student support split into many factions between 
all the candidates. Nationwide though the race 
seems to be between President Carter and Ron- 
ald Reagan, with Kennedy and Anderson evident 
but posing little threat. 


The John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library, designed by I.M. Pei, was

cri^i^ in man 

November 4, 1979, the US 
Embassy in Iran was seized by 
student revolutionaries fol- 
lowing the religious leader 
Khomeini. The forty-nine US 
citizens inside the embassy at 
the time were taken as hos- 
tages. The demand made on 
the United States for the hos- 
tages' release was the return of 
the Shah, who at the time was 
receiving medical care in New 
York City. President Carter 
did not answer to the de- 

mands of the Iranians. Since 
that dav in November six hos- 
tages managed to escape and 
the US aborted rescue mis- 
sion. The mission ended in 
disaster before reaching the 
hostages. The lranians,upon 
learning of the US rescue 
move, distributed the hos- 
tages throughout Iran making 
it difficult for the government 
to attempt another rescue

UMass hears Jane Fonda & Tom Hay den 

After much controversy Jane Fonda and husband 
Tom Hayden appeared before an audience of 4000 on 
September 30 at the Curry Hicks Cage. Representing the 
Campaign for Economic Democracy, Hayden and Fon- 
da were on a tight speaking schedule of 50 cities in 35 
days. Their goal of this exhausting tour was to reach "the 
large constituency that cares more about issues than 

The topics covered were energy and economics; 
Specifically the discussion centered on inflation causing 
corporations and antinuclear power. 

Fonda and Hayden were sponsored by the Dis- 
tinguished Visitors Program at a cost of $7000. Students 
were charged $1.00 a ticket which just covered the 
speakers' fee. 

During the event 150 veterans were protesting out- 
side the cage. Angry that Fonda was being allowed to 
speak at a pubicly funded institution and paid by student 
funds, the Veteran's Service Organization launched a 
full scale attempt to prohibit Fonda's appearence. Walter 
Laughlin, vice-president of the Veteran's Service Or- 
ganization released the following statement. "We con- 
sider it to be a direct insult to the patriotism, bravery and 
courage of every veteran, not only the Vietnam veteran, 
but to every citizen who answered the call of the U. S. in a 
period of national emergency, and especially those 
veterans who gave their lives and who were wounded 
and maimed in support of the long standing ideals and 
beliefs of this nation." 

"We consider it to be a 
direct insult to the patri- 
otism, bravery and cour- 
age of every veteran..." 

Walter Laughlin 











The first class of the 1 980^s capped off their careers at UlVlass on IVlay 24, 1 980. Awaiting them were jobs (or 
unemployment), travel, graduate school, and the incredible challenge of the ominous eighties.

What is yoyr reaction to

The Library 

It is a shame that emergency funding could not be found to str , t 
repair work. It is an inconvenience to many people and discredit 
to the school's reputation.

I think ifs a disgrace that everyone cannot use the library 
whenever they want access to it. 

Bob Miller

^What is yoyr reaction to 
-the draft? 

I feel thatthe library situation has been a disappointment from 
my point of view. Here we have the largest library in the world 
(tallest) and it doesn't even work; it isn't functional. For students 
enrolled here at UMass, it is a disgrace to know that you don't 
have a library that you may use. 

Jeff Bennett 

I think it's a shame that we are denied a quality education at a 
university this size. I am amazed that our administration cuts all 
corners possible and had full knowledge of this situation five 
years ago. 

Elizabetti Murray 

I find it quite absurd that the state school of Massachusetts, 
which is far from hurting in financial matters (considering recent 
fee increases), cannot keep the most important building on 
cas-npus open. Not only is Goodell small and quite cramped, but it 
is not the solution to the large tower's problem.

I think there is a need for the draft if the safety of Americans 
here and abroad is in jeopardy.

I will have just completed my field work as a sensory motor

free time I will row my shell (crew boat) on the Charles River. 

Sue Witt 
Pliysical Education 

I feel that, in the event of a war, we are going to have a draft 
whether we want one or not. Registration for the draft would 
speed up the process in the event of a war, I fail to see, however, 
that a war is an inevitable consequence of registration and the 
draft as many people seems to feel.

I do not believe the draft should be reinstated in this countn/. I 
feel the people in power in the government should put more

and not turn to war to settle these problems.

My reactions to the draft are mixed. Increased militarism isn't 
always the answer to threats, yet one in which, when warranted, I 
support totally. Most importantly is to understand the issues and 
take a substantial stand.

Working Force 

The great tick in the great UMass clock, 
the men and women employees of the 
University often go unrecognized and 

Providing their services, the "classified" 
employees (as opposed to administrators 
and faculty) allow the University to func- 
tion on a day-to-day basis. There are over 
3,195 classified employees. Some are 
gardners, carpenters, food service man- 
agers, custodians, librarians and cashiers. 

A typical morning's encounter could go 
as follows: you wake up (having slept 
through your 9:05 class). As you head for 
the dorm bathroom you sleepily acknow- 
ledge your dorm custodian. Walking to 
Whitmore from Southwest, you spy phy- 
sical plant personnel trimming the bushes 
next to Hampshire House. Going through 
the side entrance you almost get run over 
by a Central mail truck leaving the mail- 
room where thousands of letter • and pack- 
ages are sorted yearly. On ^ jur way 
upstairs you see another custodian. You 
see another custodian sweeping the stair- 
well. Cashing a check that your mother 
sent is an older woman (the one whose 
line moves faster than any of the others). 
Rounding out the morning you have a 
clerical copy a semester's worth of notes at 
one of the five copy centers located on 
campus. The secretary of your depart- 
ment head gives you a list of your major's 
requirements, carefully explaining pre- 
requisites (probably for the hundreth 
time today). Before you know it, you're 
eating a lunch that was delivered to you by 
a dozen pairs of hands. 

Many UMass students have found 
memories and anecdotes about some of 
these people. 

"My first day I was totally lost and was 
helped by a physical plant employee who 
was painting our dorm hallway." 

"When my friend and I worked in the 
dining commons, there was one woman 
who celebrated our birthdays." 

"One office that I worked at had a 
secretary who made the greatest Toll- 
house cookies and taught me how to 

"Some nights after work, we would all 
go out drinking together and forget our 
various student to worker roles and be- 
came friends." 

"We share cigarettes, advice and exper- 

Most employees are residents of the 
area and live in the surrounding towns. 
They are most often the people many 
students will forget but who many mon 
will surely remember. 

There is nothing quite like a spring at UMass. The season 
begins about one week after spring break, as the temperature 
begins to rise. 

The glorious, sunny afternoons make it hard to study and 
eventually frisbees take the place of books. Popular outdoor 
hangouts are the Southwest pyramids, the Campus Center 
and the lawn by the Campus Pond. On a really hot day 
students head out to Puffer's Pond and the Quabbin Reser- 

Concerts and parties happen everywhere and class atten- 
dance decreases considerably. And, according to grade statis- 
tics from Whitmore, studenf s grade averages go down also. 

If s difficult to concentrate on books, when the outdoors is 
beckoning seductively for one to play and party. 

Each living area has a weekend party day, with bands 
providing great music. Then there is the ultimate party 
weekend at UMass, Spring Concert, which featured Lonnie 
Liston Smith, Bonnie Raitt and the Allman Brothers. 

The week after the concert is mellow, since concentration is 
diverted to studying (or cramming) for finals. 

After finals, seniors begin a special kind of party week. The 
parties aren't of the wild frenzied type to relieve academic 
tension, but rather they are celebrations of accomplishment. 

Senior day comes, almost too quickly, and for many it's that 
last opportunity to party with friends who have been through 
the very worst and the very best of their college careers. 
Nevertheless, this past Senior Day was the ultimate success 
with great weather, great beer and great tunes. 

As the week closed, commencement was held. The cere- 
mony marked both an ending and a beginning for the Class of 
1980. It was a day for parental smiles, hurried goodbyes and 
the exchange of addresses. 

As the seniors leave, they take with them the last dose of 
UMass spring fever and the campus becomes quiet, waiting 
for the feverish return of students in the Fall.

Dr. Henry Koffler 

"Graduation, from the Latin word for step, is an institutional acknow- 
ledgement of individual progress, of a recognized step toward personal 
fulfillment. The steps you will take in the years to come, while they may 
not be recognized in formal ceremonies such as this, will be no less 
graduations, as you progress by perhaps less defineable degrees 
toward the achievement of your personal and social goals. Your formal 
graduations and degrees, like the markings on a scientific instrument, 
will never measure more than content or capacity. The use that is made 
of your capacities, now and as they continue to increase, will depend on 
you alone." 

Dr. David C. Knapp 

"In the past 1 1 7 years, this campus has seen some many thousands of 
young men and women come and go. Some have gone on to become 
distinguished men and women of letters; some have become leaders of 
our nation's corporate enterprises including those of high technology 
which now strengthen the economy of our state; some have assumed 
the burden of resolving the seemingly insoluble problems of public 
affairs through legislative leadership; and at least one has distinguished 
himself by defying the law of gravity again and again as he moves toward 
and beneath the basketball hoop. 

Today you join - as alumni of the University of Massachusetts - the 
ranks of many men and women of distinction. We are proud of them. We 
are proud of you. Be proud of yourselves." 


"The key to our future and our survival in that complex world, I believe, 
is our ability to think and to reason. While we may land a job because of 
our ability ot test well on the facts or formulas, it is our ability to use our 
heads which will determine how we function within our society and the 
world, and how we make that society and the world function for us." 

David M. Bart ley 

"So, this is a significant day! 

It marks -- as Gail Sheehy would say -- another 'right of passage' in 
your life. 

You pass from the relatively protected halls of UMass to other less 
protected worlds, and to new responsibilities. 

And, as you leave here today, I would suggest you heed this 

'Be selfish.' 

Yes -- be selfish. 

Be selfish about this university. 

Be selfish about being a graduate of this university. 

Be selfish about making this university an even greater educational 
institution in the years to come."
