We hove chosen "Connections" as our theme for the 1961 INDEX. For 
here ot the University, we ore connected to many things, some may be 
more apparent than others, and the connections do exist. We ore 
connected to the University, to our fellow students and to our professors. 
We ore connected to our families bock home, to other schools, to the 
real world. There is (yes, really) a connection between studying and 
portying, between learning and doing, and between getting a degree 
and getting a job. Finally, we ore connected to the history of the 
University. With that, we would like to conclude with the following 

In submitting to you this volume of the Index, we have to offer a 
congradulotion upon being enabled to look bock on a year . . . 
replete with facts which, os bearing on the future of our institution, 
are significant. 

We allude to the growing popularity of our college ond the rank 
it is taking among institutions of learning. From the year of its 
foundation the college has had to encounter oppositions of every 
sort and mognitude . . . We ore slowly but surely living down all 
this unfriendliness; and, fellow-student, don't leave all this work of 
conversion to the mon ot the wheel. Although the ship is in good 
hands, yet we, as students, in our peculiar relations with one 
another and with the public, act on importont port in giving 
character and ploce to the college . . . 

We hove a word to soy to the succeeding class: Do not foil to 
publish the Index; there ore some in every doss who will be 
indifferent or opposed to the publication. This is the only exponent 
there is in college to represent the students, which ought to be 
sufficient reason for its continuance.

Every undergraduate who pays the Student Activities Tax on the fee bill is a member of the Student 
Government Association. The SGA attempts to provide a strong voice for student interests both within the 
University and outside of it. 

The SGA presdient is elected popularly each spring to represent students in the University, the Board of 
Trustees, and the State legislature. Two students serve as co-presidents — one serves as the student member of 
the Board of Trustees, and the other serves as the student body president. 







The Campus Center/Student Union Board of Governors has many tasks. We provide student input into many 
decisions Management may wish to make within the complex. We are charged with the responsibility of ensuring 
that student concerns are part of all policy made for the Complex. Sometimes that can be a very difficult job. An 
example of this responsibility is maintaining input into the many renovations planned for the Campus 
Center/Student Union Building. 

Another function of the board is to watchdog all day-to-day operations in the Complex. The board is charged 
with the responsibility of ensuring that all increases in fees or retail prices are justified. We must be on top of 
financial as well as operational activities that occur in the day-to-day operations of the food services department, 
Retail Services Department, Hotel, Mini-store, Administration, etc. 

The Board of Governors also provides many direct services to the UMass community. We certify all vendors 
who wish to sell on the concourse. We provide food and room waivers for qualifying organizations. We operate 
a key function which is responsible for distributing keys to all student organizations in the Complex. The Board 
Of Governors also funds many groups providing services to the UMass community including the Craft Shop, the 
Student Union Gallery, Governor's Program Council, Cable Video Project, and the Union Program Council. We 
oversee their financial records, provide technical assistance, and provide a calendar for publicity of their 

In summary, the Board of Governors is an elected group of students maintaining student input in the Campus 
Center/Student Union Complex. We provide services and oversee the operations of all functions in the Complex.

The UMass Outing Club serves to bring people together 
for good times and the opportunity to introduce each other 
to the outdoors. Club trips range from a single day to several 
weeks, local to cross country. Club members plan and lead 
trips in hiking, canoeing, caving, rock climbing, winter 
mountaineering, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. The 
Outing Club provides activities for people of all levels of 
skills, from beginner to expert. The club maintains its own 
equipment, which may be rented for private use. The club 
also maintains a cabin just outside the White Mountains in 
New Hampshire that is available to anyone affiliated with the 
University and to other Outing Clubs.

Earthfoods is a cooperatively run student restaurant 
serving inexpensive vegetarian cuisine in a comfortable, 
informal atmosphere, its primary goal is to provide 
healthy, vegetarian foods for low cost to the UMass com- 

Earthfoods serves as a gathering place for nonsmokers, 
students who prefer vegetarian food, and those who are 
more comfortable in an antiprofit setting. 

Musicians often perform during lunches, and artists and 
performers are welcome to share their talents at the col- 
lective in exchange for meals and tips. 



Do you want to pick up a bagel and cheese for lunch? 
How about some fresh fruit? At People's Market, you will 
be able to find these things and much more at very low 
prices. It is a collectively run food store located in the 
Student Union. It offers a wide variety of inexpensive, 
nutritious food which is otherwise not available on cam- 
pus. The market is a place for students to learn about 
cooperative business, and is a center for sharing informa- 
tion on nutrition and politics. But mostly it is a student run 
store and people are always welcome.

physical condition, and those interested in learning about Eastern Culture 
are encouraged to join. Karate is also a sport, and the club competes in 
East Coast Collegiate Karate Union Tournament.

The Handicapped Students Collective is a group composed of both 
handicapped and nonhandicapped students. Members of the group work 
together to raise awareness within the University community of the 
problems and concerns of the handicapped population. The collective's 
nope is that through education of the community these problems may 
be eliminated so handicapped students can become better integrated 
into all activities of University life. 


Handicapped Student Affairs provides support for the disabled students within the University area. The office 
can aid the student with preferential course scheduling, orientation programs, housing assistance, and counseling 

The University has been awarded grants to reduce architectural barriers and make campus more accessible to 
the handicapped. A campus Architectural Barriers Board has been appointed to coordinate future barrier 
reduction projects.

Every day, Monday through Friday, thousands of Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts students and employees pick up 
copies of their campus newspaper, the Massachusetts 
Daily Collegian. What happens to these papers once 
they're pici<ed up, however, is anyone's guess. For sure, 
some of^the papers are actually read for the comics, the 
advertisements, used for the crossword puzzle or for the 
dining common menu. And still others are probably used 
for more practical things like wrapping fish, lining the 
birdcage, or housebreaking the dog. 

What much of the University community doesn't see in 
the paper, however, is the time and the effort that goes 
into producing the daily product. From Sunday through 
Thursday each week, dozens of students crowd the Colle- 
gian's windowless offices in the basement of the Campus 
Center to write or edit news stories, take photographs, 
layout, sell advertising, typeset, or paste up the pages. 
Often working until 4 or 5 in the morning, the Collegian 
staff members, all full-time students, work to perfect their 
craft in the hope of landing a job in the "real world" upon 

But resume building alone cannot explain the almost 
fanatical devotion most staff members have. In past years. 
Collegian editors and staff members have gone to great 
lengths, doing all sorts of things at some very odd hours to 

insure that the newspaper comes out, as promised. 

In recent years, people have leaped from burning cars 
to run the paper to the printers before reporting the 
accident, have driven through blizzards, have gotten out 
of warm beds at all hours of the morning to drive to the 
printers in Ware, or have nearly gotten arrested while 
driving the paper. Other people nave experienced the 
agony of having to write, edit, and then deliver the paper 
the following morning, of losing pages of the paper, or of 
accidentally dropping them into mud puddles. 

Above all, however, there are the happy times and the 
fond memories of the paper's successes that are most 
cherished by members of the staff. When a particularly 
good story is run, when the community has oeen made 
better because of something the paper has done, it all 
sticks out prominently in the minds of staff members for 
years to come. 

Long after everyone has left the University, and long 
before any of the staff members arrived, the Collegian has 
flourishea. But while the paper will remain an institution, 
it is the people who produce it that give it the extra- 
added touch and make it just a little bit more special. And 
that is something that constantly changes ana is exciting 
to experience.

The Union Program Council is the largest student organi- 
zation on campus with a membership of over 250, and offers 
students a first hand opportunity to participate in concert 
production. UPC's programming runs the gamut of con- 
temporary music- from Rock 'n Roll to Folk to Jazz to Raggae 
to New Wave. These concerts are entirely student staffed, 
and members can choose to work on stage crew, security, 
publicity, or any other facet of concert production. UMas- 
s/Amerst is one of the few universities around the country 
where concerts are entirely student-produced, and this pro- 
vides a unique learning experience for its members. 

In addition to sponsoring concerts in the Fine Arts Center 
and the Student Union Ballroom, UPC is also responsible for 
bringing bands to the Blue Wall, and the TOC. Every spring, 
UPC helps to put on ojxutdoor concerts in each of the 
residential areas, and in May, sponsors a "Community Day" 
program in the stadium, which has traditionally been free to 
students. Performers at this event have included Santana, 
the Allman Brothers and the Greatful Dead.

Past speakers have included Dick Gregory, Jane Fonda and 
Tom Hayden, Angela Davis, George McGovern, Red Sox 
stars Bill Lee and Carl Yastrezmski, Abbie Hoffman, and 
many others. 

DVP members coordinate all aspects of program pro- 
duction - contacting speakers, generating campus public- 
ity, working security, and providing hospitality. In addi- 
tion, we accept and review proposals for speakers from 
other student groups and individuals. 

Membership in DVP is earned by attending three con- 
secutive weekly meetings, and not missing more than 
three subsequent meetings in a semester. Members of 
DVP vote on outside proposals, generate and carry out 
their own programs,and assume responsibility keeping all 
DVP operations running smoothly. 



The Student Activities Office handles the business aspects of ail the RSO groups through a staff of trained 
professionals who can help a group plan concerts, conference, movies, speakers, ana other activities. 




The Newman Club is a group of interested students 
and community members of the Catholic Church on 
campus. Its goal is to help make University life more 
personal and meaningful to the individual student. 

Each semester the club promotes activities in three 
areas — social, spiritual, and service. It sponsers spa- 
ghetti dinners, cookouts, dances, intramural teams, Bi- 
ble studies, camping retreats, and guest speakers. 

The only prerequisite for the club is the desire for 
fun and self-satisfaction through the sharing of ideas, 
values, and talents. 

Hillel is an organization serving the full spectrum of 
the Jewish community as well as the general communi- 
ty on campus in a number of ways: socially, through 
parties, coffeehouses, and picnics; educationally, 
through one-credit colloquia and the Hillel library; cul- 
turally, through frequent films, speakers, Israeli danc- 
ing, singing, drama groups, and the annual Jewish Arts 
Festival; religiuosly, through Shabbat and holiday cele- 
brations and study groups; and geopolitically, through 
travel, study, and political information on Israel. 



The Everywoman's Center is a communication center for persons who are interested in issues concerning women. 
The center's resources include referral books listing medical, legal, educational, social, and political organizations. 

Pogram coordinators provide counseling, advocacy, and other direct services for women on an individual and group 
basis. Rape counselor/advocates, the Poor Women's Task Force, Third World Advocates and the Working Women's 
Task Force are just some of the support systems available to members of the community. 


The Student Center for Educational Research and Advocacy (SCERA) is a student staffed center for researching 
campus problems and actively advocating solutions. 

SCERA's goals and programs are reviewed and funded by the undergraduate Student Senate. Advocacy teams are 
assigned to research problems and causes and to design programatic solutions.

The Veteran's Service Organization consists of concerned individuals interested in extending social and 

Erofessional services to the military veteran population at the University. It offers veterans an opportunity to 
ecome actively involved in issues and programs which concern them as veterans. 


The Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group is a student directed organization that works for public 
change in the Commonwealth. Environment and energy issues as well as corporate and government 
accountability are some of the groups interest. Student involved in MassPIRG work with a professional staff of 
lawyers, organizers, and advocates to learn a variety of skills such as social issue research and lobbying. 

A free society depends 
on the will of the people 
to govern themselves.

give in they get taken 
And when people 
are knowledgeable and 
organized they win. 



We've begun to win.

The Index, the yearbook for the University of Massachusetts, first published in 1869, is one of the oldest collegiate 
publications of it's kind in the nation. The Index has long been regarded by other Universities as one of the premier 
collegiate yearbooks, winning awards and distinguishing itself for excellence in nation wide competition. 

The Index does not rest on its laurels however, as each year a new staff tries to build upon the innovative design, high 
quality writing, and imaginative photography that has made the index the highly acclaimed piece of work that it is. 

The book is produced by a staff of approximately 30 students and offers members of the University community an 
opportunity to learn and sharpen their skills in the fields of layout, photography, writing and editing.

Gamma Sigma Sigma 

A T ! O N Al S I R V { CI SO t O R Jl 

The primary purpose of Gamma Sigma Sigma is "to unite college and university women in the 
spirit of service to humanity". At UMass, members of the organization do this through projects like 
blood drives, used book exchanges, reading to the blind, visiting nursing homes, running Las Vegas 
Night with Alpha Phi Omega, and other similar projects to raise money for charity. 

Gamma Sigma Sigma is not all work, however. Many of the projects are a lot of fun, and social 
events are held with other chapters and Alpha Phi Omega. Every two years, a national convention 
gives sisters the chance to meet women from ail over the United States. 

Membership in Gamma Sigma Sigma is limited to those women willing to help other people. Its 
only requirement is that you be willing to volunteer your time to bettering someone elses life. 
Since the group does not have a house, a sister's social life can be as broad as she wants. 


I I 


Alpha Phi Omega was founded for the purpose of providing service to our fellow man. Since its 
founding in 1925, A Phi O brothers have contributed of themselves in thousands of service projects 
- one of the reasons why Alpha Phi Omega has grown to be the largest fraternity in the country. 

Here at the University of Massachusetts, our chapter has a varied schedule of projects to which 
we devote our time each year. Some of these include: operating the "Ride Board" in the Student 
Union, running "Operation Identification" in which we engrave people's valuables in an attempt to 
reduce thievery, and even clearing a section of the Appalachian Trail. Our main event of the year is 
our annual "Las Vegas Night" which turns the entire first floor of the Campus Center into a huge 
casino. This year was our 20th annual "Las Vegas Night" and over the year's we have been able to 
donate over $20,000 to local and national charities. 

Our activities aren't totally service oriented, however. We hold a number of social events 
throughout the year, as well. 

Alpha Phi Omega has been known and respected both on the campus and throughout the 
community since our installation here 29 years ago. Each semester, we look for a select group of 
individuals who we feel can continue to exhibit our principles of outstanding leadership, friend- 
ship, and service. 

Since we are a service fraternity, we have no house; our members live in dormitories and off 
campus. If you are interested in learning more about Alpha Phi Omega, we will be having open 
rushes duirng the first few weeks of school. Check our ads in the Daily Collegian for the time and 
dates, tentatively set for Sept. 14 and 21 in the Campus Center.

Keeping up rhe rradirion as New England's "reom-ro-beor", the 
1980 women's field hockey ream once again wreaked havoc 
over all local comperirion, shutting our 12 teams, going 17-1-1 
during the regular season and at one point being ranked second 
in rhe notion behind only Penn State. 

"We were young," third-year coach Pom Hixon said. "We 
were only playing one senior consistently. We went one game at 
time and tried to improve with every game." 

One gome at o time is how they went . . . right to the 
Regionals held this year at Springfield College. The Minutewomen 
had won the tourney the previous year and hod gone on to 
place seventh at the Nationals. Seeded second in '80, the Masso- 
chusetts squad won its first round, dumping the University of 
Rhode Island 4-0. They advonced to the semi-finals where they 
faced the University of Connecticut, a team they hod beoten 2-1 
during regular season. UConn got its revenge in the Regionals 
winning the gome 2-1 and the tournament. 

When Sue Copies, a junior from Weston, scored in the first half 
ond Freshmen Goalie Potty Sheo tallied save after save, it looked 
like UMA55 might advance to the finals. In the second and fatal 
half, a questionable coll tied the game and sent the two teams 
into o double overtime that proved fruitless. After two stroke-offs, 
UConn emerged the victor by a single score, ond put an end to 
post season ploy for the Minutewomen. 

The women allowed just six gools scored against them during 
the entire regular season while scoring 54. Sheo was aided on 
defense by freshmen Cord Progulski and Coroline Kovonogh. 
Sophomore Ro Tudryn ond senior Potti Dossio were consistent 
in shutting down offensive drives by any opposing team. On 
offense, Minutewomon Judy Strong (o member of this year's 
Olympic team) led the scoring attack with 31 goals and seven 
ossists. She was followed by sophomore Tino Coffin who finished 
the season with 12 gools ond five ossists. 

Cooch Hixon expects the entire team bock (with the excep- 
tion of the groduoting seniors) in what could ogoin prove ro be 
the "teom-to-beot"!

Someone, somerime, long ogo, soid o lirrle rain never hurr 
anyone. If you were ro soy rhor ro any nnennber of rhe 1980 
University of Mossochuserrs foorbol! ream, you v^ouid probably 
receive a punch in rhe nose. 

UMass rollback Garry Pearson sor rhere, afrer UMoss hod 
beoren Connecricur 39-21, shaking his head. A smile was rhere, 
bur a sod one. 

"You know," Garry Pearson said, "I'd give onyrhing ro ploy 
DU again in dry weorher. When we played ogainsr rhem, well, 
ir jusr wasn't foorboli." 

Whor ir was, in focr, was a season. 

Bur, ir will be remembered as a good one. A season rhor 
produced a defense rhar led rhe norion (Division 1-AA) in rorol 
defense; a season rhor produced a premier running bock in New 
England; o seoson rhor produced o 7-3 record, ond a camarade- 
rie rhor goes beyond wins and losses. 

Ir oil began ironically enough, on a sunny Seprember afrer- 
noon or Alumni Sradium. The Wildcors of Villanova came norrh, 
favored by rwo rouchdowns ro bear rhe Minuremen, who hod 
failed ro score in rheir only pre-seoson scrimmage or Darrmourh. 
Everyone rhoughr rhor Vilionovo would win. 

Dur, UMoss used rhe running of Pearson and senior fullback 
Brian Heyworth ro upser rhe Wildcors 24-12. Pearson scored 
20 of his ream's poinrs wirh rhree rouchdowns and o rwo-poinr 
conversion corch, rushing for 119 yards while Heyworth bulled 




his way for 101. Dur, few observer would concede rhor ir was 
norhing more rhon a fluke. An upser. 

The following week, rhe Minuremen handed riny Delaware 
Srare a less rhon hospiroble Mossochuserrs welcome, shurring our 
rhe Homers 39-0 in a gome rhor was over when rhe rwo reams 
rook rhe field. Pearson scored o couple, quorrerbock Tim Fon- 
taine rhrew a few more, a couple ro senior righrend Mike 
Barbiasz, and people began ro scrorch rheir chins and wonder, 
maybe, jusr maybe, rhis ream is for real. 

Week Three found UMoss down in Kingsron, R.l. for rheir firsr 
Yankee Conference gome ogoinsr rhe Universiry of Rhode Is- 
land. The Minuremen came bock ro Amhersr wirh a 6-8 vicrory 
over rhe Rams. Afrer giving up jusr 20 poinrs in rhree gomes, rhe 
UMqss defense began ro be noriced. They forged rheir way ro 
rhe rop of rhe norion 's besr overall defense, a posirion rhey did 
nor give up for rhe resr of rhe year. 

And, rhen, rhe rains began. i % 

Ir was drizzly and cold rhe ofrernoon of Ocrober 11, when rhe 
Minuremen rook on rhe Fighren' Blue Hens of Delaware in rhe 
UMqss Homecoming gome. The roil-gorers were rhere, early, 
chomping hordogs and quaffing beers in onriciparion of o close 
foorboli gome berween rwo of rhe finesr Eosrern reams in 
Division 1-AA. 

The gome ended wirh nine seconds lefr. 

UMoss and Delaware did borrle on a slick field. Ir was mosriy a 
gome of defense. Pearson score wirh six minures lefr and rhe 
Minuremen hod seemingly pulled off onorher upser of a nonleo- 
gue opponenr; on upser which would moke on NCAA playoff 
bid oil rhe more reolizoble. Ir didn'r happen. 

Delaware quorrerbock Rick Scully lofred o pass which receiv- 
er Ed Wood pulled down in rhe endzone for o 21-17 win. 

The rain conrinued up in beauriful downrown Orono, where 
rhe Minuremen rrovelled ro roke on rhe Block Beors of Maine 
and New England's leading rusher in Lorenzo Douier. Douier 
gor off one 77-yQrd rouchdown jounr, bur rhe UMoss defense, 
led by senior John Alien, rockles Dan Petrie, Eric Cregan, 
defense aids George Lewis ond Frank DiTommaso, end line- 
backers Scott Crowell and Pete DiTommaso, ollowed rhe 

rolenred Douier rojusr 40 oddirionol yards as UMoss wenr on ro 
win rhe gome 21-14. 

And, rhen came BU. 

Calling ir a foorboli gome would be polire. 

"When you allow rhree poinrs, you expecr ro win," sold 
UMoss head coach Bob Pickett. 

UMoss ollowed rhree poinrs. They did nor win. 

In o whipping wind rhor sloshed rain obour BU's Nickerson 
Field rhe Minuremen played o slip ond slide gome of foorboli or 
mid-field wirh Bosron Universiry. Ir ended 3-0, a 32-yard field 
goal by rhe rerriers' Jeff Pelin being rhe only scoring. 

"I don'r wonr ro moke excuses," Pickett was saying, rain srill 
dripping off his soaked face 15 minures afrer rhe gome's end. 
"Bur we ployed rhe weorher rodoy, ond BU bear rhe weorh- 

The UConn game followed rhe nexr week, bur rhe magic 
hod been dimmed. UMqss venred some of rheir frusrrorions or 
rhe expense of rhe Huskies. Pearson and Heyworth were up ro 
rheir old rricte. Pearson rushed for his season high, q 222-yard 
efforr, while Heyworth rambled for 110 himself, leading rhe 
Minuremen ro o 39-21 vicrory over UConn before 12,146 or 
Alumni Sradium. 

The Minuremen won rhe gome, bur losr rheir quorrerbock 
and coproin. Fontaine rook o helmer in rhe bock ond suffered a 
bruised kidney and a crocked verrebro, requiring hospirolizorion 


for nearly a monrh. Tri-coproin Fred Read broke an ankle and 
was sidelined for rhe remoining rhree gomes. 

Sophomore quorrerbock Dan Pecevich and back-up cenrer 
Victor Pizzotti srepped in and UMoss never looked bock. 

Ir wos obour o half hour afrer UMoss hod come from behind 
ro defeor Holy Cross 17-13 rhor Pickerr asked rhe medio ro srep

For rhe firsr rime in four years UMoss would nor hove o

Bur o cheer wenr up in rhe UMoss locker room anyway. The

The losr Yankee Conference gome was o 17-0 win over New 
Hampshire; memorable only for rhe defensive efforr which rhe 
Minuremen rurned in before rhe Fomily Day crowd or Alumni. 

This losr gome said ir oil: ir was Bosron College, rhe boys from 
Chesrnur Hill who ger oil rhe norice, oil rhe ink, ogoinsr rhe boys

A few rhings srood our rhis seoson: Heyworth scoring his one

Bur norhing exemplified rhe season berrer rhon rhe lonely

Hard work. The Universiry of Mossochuserrs Marching 
Bond. The rwo hove become virruolly inseperoble. Hours of 
hard work hove ployed on imporronr role in rhe quoliry of rhe 
bond's performonces. 1980 wos o big yeor for rhe Minure- 
mon Bond, rmorked by several appearances on network 
relevision, porriciporion in Boston's Jubilee 050 Grand Parade, 
rhe first Northeast Pvegionol Music Bowl (hosted by UMoss and 
the Minutemon Bond), the band's first oppeoronce or o 
professional football gome, and the selection as THE collegiate 
bond to represent the Northeast in the 1981 Inougurol Porode. 
Throughout rhe season, appreciative and vocal crowds re- 
sponded to "The Power and Class of New England" wirh 
rousing ovations, somehow repaying the band's efforts multi- 

The Boston Jubilee 050 Grand Porode followed the sea- 
son's first field show, September 20 vs. Villonovo, ond Dela- 
ware Store was in town the next Saturday. Bond members 
hod the first weekend in October off, but the next weekend 
started a schedule that kept the bond busy every weel'^end 
through November 22. 

The UMoss-Boston University football gome was the firsr 
rime the bond oppeored on live television, but it's doubtful 
that bond members or any fon who was or rhe gome will 
remember that small detail. Dubbed the "B.U. Monsoon," 
some people were surprised when the bond lined up to 
moke its holftime oppeoronce. However, despite the adverse 

conditions, the bond managed to deliver o "sterling, although 
slightly damp" performonce. 

The monrh of November brought the University of Con- 
necticut and the Husky Marching Bond to UMoss, ond an 
unplanned (by UConn, anyway) appearance of the "UMoss 
Husky". The Husky is, of course, the Connecticut moscot. But, 
it seems he was "misguided" by on ambitious group of UMoss 
bond members, and decided to defect. His oppeoronce in a 
UMoss r-shirt really disrressed some UConn fans, and porriculor- 
ly rhe UConn bond members, bur fortunately, o peaceful 
rerurn was negotiated before holftime. 

During rhe recording sessions that follow every field season, 
Presidenr-Elect Ronald Reagan's Inougurol Committee invited 
the bond to porricipote in the 1981 Inaugural Parade. With 
strong support from Chancellor Henry Koffler and the Alumni 
Association, the bond was able to porricipore. 

The Minuremon Bond wos rhe seventh unit in the firsr 
division of the Inaugural Parade. All the hard work really paid 
off here, as the "Power and Closs of New England" let it be 
known that Massachusetts and the Northeast were well re- 
presented. The porode, and participation in a special concert 
on the Capitol steps afterwords, mode a particularly exciting 
step into the notional limelight for rhe bond, ond capped on 
equally exciring season.

"I'm glad ir's over," senior fullback Scott Cooper said offer rhe 
1980 University of Mossochuserrs men's soccer ream hod played 
rheir losr game of o disappointing season. Cooper was on rhe 
ream in 1978 v^hen at one time they were 13th in rhe counrry 
and finished rhe season with a 12-5-0 record. He was on rhe teom 
in 1979 when they were 12th in New England with 7-5-2. 

Head coach Russ Kidd arrributed rhe losing season ro the 
youth on rhe team. "We had eight new srorrers, a whole new 
bacWield and a new goal keeper," he said. 

Junior Tony M. Dios from Ludlow led all scorers wirh seven 
goals and four assists for 11 points. Tony G. Dios, high school ream 
mote (no relation) of Tony M. followed with four goals ond three 
assisrs. Ir was Tony G. who booted the boll into the net with 
merely o micro-second remaining in rhe gome, ro give rhe 
Minuremen a come-from-behind (2-1) victory over rhe Universiry 
of Vermonr midway rhrough rhe season. Earlier in that game, 
Tony G. hod tied the score at 1-1 off a pass from Tony M. 

The Minuremen started the season off with the Keene Store 
Kickoff Classic, winning one (Keene State) and losing one (Covis & 
Elkins). They were shut out in the firsr two home battles, by 
Dridgeporr (1-0) and Southern Connecricur (4-0) and rallied their 
second win over Williams College in Williomstown. They got o 
break that afternoon when Tony M. scored the gome winner off 
o penalry shor, his second goal in the gome. Denny Walsh got 
his first goal as a vorsiry soccermon against Williams, giving UMoss 
a 3-0 lead before the Ephmen got their first and only goal. 

The two final wins come in front of the home town fans,- a 2-0 
New Hampshire shut out in early October and a 2-1 win over 
Springfield in rhe season finale. 

Junior forword Rick Wosmund scored both in that season 
finale, the first coming or rhe holfrime buzzer ro tie the score or 1-1 
and the second with 27:07 left in rhe game, to give Moss, the 

In addition to Cooper, coach Kidd will lose seniors Julie Avilo 
and John Thomas to groduorion and will try to build another 
winning team without them.

The Universiry of Mossochuserrs women's soccer ream 
has, plain and simply, gone from good ro greor ro rerrific. 
They srorred in rhe foil of 1976 with o volunteer coach and 
14 members who mer occasionally ro scrimmage. The fol- 
lowing yeor rhey posted an 11-2-1 record os a club. They 
hove culminated five years of building by hoving halfback 
Madeline Mongini named to the All-American first team, 
the only player from New England to make the first All 
American women's soccer squad. 

"Moddie" Mongini was nomed ro the team, at the 
close of rhe 1980 seoson, o season in which UMoss went 15- 
3-1, induding 13 shutouts, ond finished third in the Eastern 
Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (EAIAW) 

"The team was good but it was disappointing thot we 
didn't finish first or second. I thought we could hove," first 
year heod-cooch Kolekeni Dondo said. 

Dondo, a UMoss grod who lertered in soccer and track, is 
the women's track coach ccer a t as well as the soccer 
mentor. He is responsible for a change in the Minutewo- 
men's strategy that resulted in their going 11-1 with ten 
shutouts during the final part of the seoson. "We switched 
the formation to give us more control over rhe midfield. 
After the change, no one scored a goal on us until going into 
the tournoment," he said. Donda switched from a 3 for- 
ward-3 hQlfback-4 fullback formation to a 2-4-4 lineup. And 
after thot, they were unbearable, adding team after team 
to their scrop heap of shurouts. "We gove the other teams 
tough times. Not too many hove seen the 4-4-2." 

The Minurewomen outscored their opponents 22-0 in the 
final stretch before the EAIAW's behind the consistent scor- 

ing of Mongini (9 goals and 5 ossisrs during the season) ond 
fullback Noncy Feldmon (13 goals), and the impenetrable 
gooltending of senior co-coptoin Kelly Tuller, who is cred- 
ited with oil 13 shurouts. 

A 2-0 win over Smirh College wos the dincher, putting the 
soccerwomen into the Easterns. The win gave UMoss a 
home field odvontoge in the first round of rhe tournomenr. 
Afrer that they closed the seoson with o 3-0 win over rhe 
Universiry of New Hampshire, the lost regular season gome 
for senior co-caproins Tuller and fullback Eloine Content. 

A Nino Holmstrom tolly at 20:17 in the firsr half, pushed 
UMoss inro the semifinals of the tournament with a 1-0 
squeaker over rhe Universiry of Vermonr. The Minurewo- 
men hod losr ro UVM 1-0 during the regulor season and 
settled the score cutting the Catamounts from any further 
post-season ploy. Holmstrom and Natalie Prosser played 
hurr in rhor game and according ro Dondo, the injuries ore 
what held UMoss to a third ploce in the tournament. 

With 28 seconds left to ploy, the Universiry of Connecticut 
knocked the UMoss booters out of contention with the tolly 
that gave UConn o 2-1 victory and a berth in the finals. 
UMoss beat Harvard in the consolation round ro rake the 
third spot. 

The season was over ... but not before Dondo hod 
added o little to on organization rhar continues to grow. For 
the '81 seoson, Dondo expects his entire teom, with the 
exceptions of Tuller ond Contont, bock. "The whole contin- 
gent is coming bock and I'm expecting a whole lot from 
them," he said.

The women's boskerball ream compiled o 14-14 record 
rhroughour rheir roughest schedule in rhe five years Mary Ann 
Ozdorski has been cooch. 

Ir wos bosicQily o rebuilding year for rhe ream because of irs 
inexperience os four different freshmen played in rhe starring 
lineup or vorious times in the season. The loss of Sue Peters left 
o gaping hole in the teom's offensive production, Peters, who 
signed on to play professionally with rhe New Orleans Pride of 
rhe Women's Basketball League, wos no longer oround to 
provide her twenty-plus points a game average, pinpoint 
posses, or key steals when the ream needed the boll. In losing 
her to groduorion, the team lost a "secure port of the pro- 
gram" according to Ozdorski. 

Once ogoin ploying mognificienrly, rhough, was senior co- 
coptoin Julie Ready. Ready hod o simply awesome year, 
providing rhe leadership along w' ^he other co-captain Gin- 
ger Legore, that had been provioc-d by Peters in posr years. 
Ready averaged 20.7 points per gome and 9.2 rebounds. Her 
581 poinrs for rhe year gove her 1046 career points, purring her 
second on rhe all-rime UMoss scoring list behind Peters while 
her 257 rebounds gove her 831 over rhe three and a half 
years she wos or rhe school for leadership on rhe all-rime lisr. 
Among her occomplishmenrs were rhe nomination for rhe 
Wode rrophy for rhe best womon basketball ployer in rhe 
nation, MVP of the Syracuse Tournament, selecrion ro rhe 
EAIAW All-Region Division I ream, selecrion ro rhe Queen's and 
Providence All-Tourney reams, and rhe MVP oword for wom- 
en's boskerboll by rhe Mossochuserts Sporrs Club. 

This was o season rhor looked very promising for rhe Min- 
urewomen in rhe firsr two monrhs. They went 4-4 in De- 
cember ond rhen 8-3 in January when rhey played rhe 
toughest parr of rheir difficult schedule which included power- 
houses such OS Indiana, rhe Universiry of Virginia, East Carolina, 

Norrhwesrern, Temple, Georgetown, Syracuse and Monrdair 
Srore in rhe four rournomenrs rhey played. 

February was nor o good monrh, ro soy rhe very leosr. A 
heartbreaking loss or rhe hands of Springfield College in which 
UMoss lost the leod in the last seven minutes may hove hurr 
their confidence. Ir rook rhirreen days ond rhee more losses 
before rhey got bock a positive feeling, defeoting Central 
Connecricut ond then Southern Connecricur in -overrime, ro 
quolify for rhe Eastern Regionols. 

Key gomes of rhe season induded beoring Syracuse Universi- 
ry on irs home courr in rhe Syracuse Tournomenr, knocking off 
Princeron on rhe rood ofrer coming from fourteen poinrs down 
in o rremendous room efforr, ond o one poinr loss ro Indiono in 
o gome which borely slipped Through rheir fingers in rhe 
Queen's Tournomenr. 

There were several brighr spors emerging from rhis sel 
Ginger Legore played ro rhe besr of her obiliry, providing 9.2 
poinrs and 7.6 rebounds o gome while doing oil rhe lirrle things 
well. Junior guard Sherry Collins leod rhe ream in ossisrs wirh 
78 ond mode many o clurch sreol. 

Perhaps rhe biggesr brighr spor besides rhe gursy ploy of 
Ready ond Legore was rhe job of the four freshmen did. 
Forward Nodine Jackson was on inrimidaring force on rhe .' , 
boords all year long, overoging 8.3 rebounds a gome including * 
20 agoinsr Sourhern Connecticut. Guord Wendy Word 
emerged as o fine player, second on rhe ream in ossisrs wirh 77 
ond rops in steols with 41, Cindy Clopp and Jenny Gray 
proved ro be very sound fundomenroliy. The four played 
exrremely well considering rhe difficulr rronsirion from o limited 
high school schedule to the September ro March college grind.

The men's Varsiry Lacrosse ream hod perhaps rheir 
lesr season egver in 1981, finishing fourrh in rhe notion 
wirh o 13-1 record in rhe regular season before losing ro 
Virginia in rhe NCAA playoffs. 

Coach Dick Gorber's "Gorillas" played exciring la- 
crosse all season long, combining on expolsive offense 
yvirh a righr defense. They opened up rhe seoon wirh 
their firsr-ever vicrory over a pernnially strong Cornell 
ream, 16-8. This vicrory begon a ren-gome winning 
srreak for rhe Minuremen, including sorisfying victories 
over Hobarr in overrime and Rurgers. Their first loss 
came ot the hands of Army, 14-10, 

The next game against Syracuse wos played before 
8,000 screoming UMoss fans, the largest crowd ever ro 
witness a lacrosse game in New England. UMass gor off 
ro their hobiruolly poor starr, rroiling or the half by a 6-4 
margin. Syracuse odded onorher goal early in rhe third 
quarter ro rake a rhree-goal lead before UMass ex- 
ploded. Junior Jim Weiler scored rhree srraighr goals 
1:05 apart to tie the score, 7-7. Tri-coptoin Chris Corin 
followed with three srraighr rallies of his own as UMoss 
never looked back and rolled ro a 12-8 vicrory. Conrri- 
buting ourstonding defensive efforrs ro the victory 
were midfielded Roy Cozzi and rri-caprain defense- 
man Paul Kinnone who held Syracuse's leading scor- 
er ro one gool and on assist and their second leading 
scorer to no points at all. 

UMoss capped the reguor season wirh victories over 
New Hampshire and Dartmouth. They were ranked 
fourth in the final regular season notional poll which 
should hove given them the home-field advantage in 
the opening round tournainent game with' Virginia. 
However, rhe NCAA commirree ruled rhot Doyden 
field was not acceptable ond did not give UMoss suffi- 
cient time to find an alternare playing sire. Thus, UMass 
troveled down to Virginio ro ploy on o wet ostrorurf 

field. The Minurmen conrorlled rhe gome in the early 
ploy, roking a 3-1 lead wirh rhe opporruniry ro hove 
token a big lead hod it not been for some key saves by 
rhe Virginia goalkeeper. Virginia come back wirh five 
goals on six shors ro rake o 7-4 leod at holffime. UMoss 
norrowed rhe lead to 8-6 in the third quarter bur that 
was OS close as they would get. Virginia reeled off four 
or five gools in o row en roure to a 16-12 victory, 
ending rhe season for UMoss. 

The 13 vicrories by UMass were rhe most ever. 
Victories over Drown, Dorrmourh, and Horvord gove 
rhe Minuremen yet^gpther New England champion- 

TIfie Minuremen attack unit of Weller, Corin, and 
Lee"Skip" Vosburgh set o notional scoring record by 
ottockmen. Weller's 62 goals (a UMoss record) pur 
him second on the oll-rime UMoss goal-scoring lisr wirh 
118 while his 98 points (also o school record) put him 
third in career poinrs. Corin hod 49 goals and 35 assists 
for ;84 points, putting him fifrh on the all-time UMass 
points list. Vosburgh's 35 gools and 48 assists for 83 
poinrs put him fifrh on rhe oll-rime gools lisr or UMoss, 
rhird in ossists with 100, ond second in points with 197. 

Midfielder Peter Schmifz, who missed four or five 
gomes wirh on injury, conrinued ro be one of rhe 
oursronding midfielders in rhe country. He was selected 
to the Division 1 All-Americo firsr ream. Paul Kinnone 
also shone on defense. Sophomore goalrender Chris 
Benedetto hod o fine overall season, stopping over 
sixty per cenr of shors on goal. 

Groduoring seniors included Corin, Vosburgh, 
Schmitz, Kinnone, Tom Walters, Doug Brown, 
Cozzi, Mark Fierro, Bryant Goulding, and Brian Kq-

The Varsiry baseball ream compiled o 22-17 record in 1981, 
including a 4-4 record in rhe Eosrern Eighr, which kepr rhem our of 
posr-season play. 

The Minuremen exhibited a porenr offensive arracl^, hirring 
.303 as Q ream. However, on inconsisrenr pirching staff contribut- 
ed to their downfall. The staff ERA wos o whopping 5.77 os 
opposed ro on opponent ERA of 5.50. Thus, they were involved 
in mony high scoring gomes. 

Eorly in rhe season people did not pick the Minutemen to be 
thor good. However, rhe team quickly showed that they could 
play with any team in the nation by completing o successful 5-6 
record in rhe highly competitive Sun-Lit Classic at Son Diego State. 
They then opened up their Eostern schedule wirh a split of a 
doubleheader with o Maine ream that would ploy in the College 
World Series. This was followed by a doubleheader sweep of 
Norrheastern and o win over American Internarional. 

The team's downfall come during a week in which rhey losr a 
pair of doubleheoders to Eastern Eight opponents Rhode Island 
ond Rurgers, gomes which they had ro win if they wanted o posr- 
season rournomenr berrh. Since UMoss was not in rhe ECAC, rhey 
had ro either win rhe Eastern Eighr or hove on outstanding record 
and hope ro be selected as on ot-lorge enrry. These four losses 
gave rhem o 4-4 record in Eosrern Eighr Norrh ploy, desrroying 
their playoff hopes. UMoss did finish rhe season on fire, winning 
nine of rheir final rv^elve games. 

UMass hod a good season, olrhough nor o greor one, according 
ro Head Coach Dick Dergquist. They were omong rhe top four in 
rhe weekly New England poll up unril the lost week of the season. 

There were a number of fine individuol performances. Senior 
catcher Jim Aulenbock, selected os team MVP, proved that he 
was an excellent professional catching prospea, getting seleaed 
by the Seattle Marines in the regular phose of the major league 
draft. He hir .311 with 5 home runs and 27 runs borred in. He also 
led the ream in his hits with 45. Combining his offensive power 
wirh his defensive consisrency, he was selecred to the All-New 
Englond second teom to ploy in the Eost-West All-Sror game or 
Fenway Pork for New England players. Freshman Keith Lovelette 
was rhorn in the side of opposing pitchers all season. The righr 
fielded led rhe ream in barring (.335,44 hirs) and RBI's (30), 

The ream broke rhe UMoss record for home runs in a season 
wirh 38. Junior first baseman Wdrren McReddie tied the UMoss 
individual home run record wirh 8 ro go along with 26 RBI's and a 
.309 batting averoge. Senior lefrfielder John Krohom had seven

Chamber Music 

The opening classical music performances in the 
spring season at the University of Massachusetts 
Fine Arts Center were Music from Marlboro. 

Formed in 1965 to provide touring and playing 
experience for young artists. Music from Marlboro 
has, according to the New York Times, become a 
national resource "as valuable as a national forest 
and should be under protection of Congress." With 
Rudolph Serkin as its artistic director, the Ver- 
mont-based program has nurtured dozens of 
world-famous musicians. 

Nineteen-year-old pianist Cecile Licad, who per- 
formed during the Amherst concert, is one excit- 
ing example: she was recently honored with the 
Gold Medal Award from the Leventritt Foundation. 
The award was reinstated after a ten-year hiatus 
especially for her. Also appearing at the Fone Arts 
Center concert were Joseph Swenson, violin, Sarah 
Clarke, viola, and Rocco Filippini, cello. 

The Fine Arts Center was lucky to welcome the 
renowned chamber enseble. The Academy of St. 
Martin in the Fields, during Its first North Ameri- 
can tour. Composed of sixteen of the world's fin- 
est musicians. The Academy of St. Martin in the 
Fields is one of the most widely recorded ensem- 
bles in the world and thus is known to music lovers 

The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields was 
formed in 1959 when some of the principal players 
of the London Symphony Orchestra were given an 
opportunity to fulfill a long-held tradition- to play 
Baroque music in the Church of St. Martin in the 
Fields. Other superb players joined them and thus 
the Academy came into being. 








On Wednesday, March 18, the audience of the 
Fine Arts Center was entertained by four talented 
young men from Japan. The Tokyo String Quartet 
started as students of the Juilliard School of Music 
in New York City. They formed as a quartet in 1969. 

In 1970, they played in two student competitions. 
The first was the Coleman String Quartet Competi- 
tion in Pasadena, California, in which they won 
first prize. Their second competition was in Mu- 
nich, during which they again won. 

Since then, the Quartet has toured and delight- 
ed many audiences, both in the United States and 
in Europe. Along with touring, the Quartet present- 
ly has residency at American University in Wash- 
ington, D.C., where they hold master classes. As a 
fitting concomitant to the Washington affiliation, 
the Corcoran Gallery has turned over to them a set 
of Amati instruments, on which they now perform 



UPC, Union Program Council, provided the 
UMass community with a year of excellent enter- 
tainment. The shows are listed as they appeared at 
UMass. The students, of course, responded enthu- 
siastically to all of these shows and understandably 
so. These are musical programs put together by 
students with students in mind. Although UPC 
faced many budget cuts, as did many other stu- 
dent organizations, they managed to put together 
shows that appealed to the many diverse musical 
interests that the students hane.

Ray Charles: musical genius of jazz when at 
the piano. He thrilled and delighted a large audi- 
ence at the Fine Arts Center. The audience re- 
sponded to the feelings that he put into his 
music and, like a mirror, he reflected the re- 
sponse by putting even more feeling into his 
music (if that is at all possible). It was like a 
spiraling staircase and Ray Charles brought the 
audience higher and higher. It was a perfor- 
mance that could only be termed excellent. 


The International Orchestra series included an 
outstanding, although limited, selection of talent. 
Featured in this series were the Minnesota Or- 
chestra with conductor Neville Marriner (pictured 
on the previous page), Maurice Andre with the 
Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra (pictured on 
the previous page and featured below), and the 
Czech Philharmonic, with conductors Vaclav Neu- 
mann and Zdenek Kosier (pictured on this page). 
This selection of orchestras provided entertain- 
ment throughout the entire school year. Also, the 
series was cosponsored with the University of 
Massachusetts Arts Council. 

Maurice Andre, "the reigning prince of trumpet 
music", performed with the Wuerttemberg Cham- 
ber Orchestra at the Fine Arts Center on Friday, 
February 27. 

The program included two concerti for trumpet 
and orchestra, by Stolzel and Tartini. Soloists from 
the Wuerttemberg's string sections were also fea- 
tured in works by Vivaldi, Grieg and Respigbi. 

Maurice Andre, who has been responsible for 
popularizing many Baroque masterpieces, has won 
ten Grands Prix du Disque in the past ten years. He 
was the solo trumpet for L'Orchestre Radio Televi- 
sion Francaise and during the same period was 
engaged by the Concert Orchestra of Lamoureux. 
More recently, Andre has performed under con- 
ductors Karl Richter, Herbert von Karajan, and Karl 
Bohm. He also holds a professorship at the Conser- 
vatoire de Paris.

Dancer, choreographer, singer and composer, 
Meredith Monk and her company. The House, of- 
fered two performances at the University of Mas- 
sachusetts Fine Arts Center on March 4 and 5. 

Meredith Monk is one of the most influential 
choreographers of today. It has been said that "her 
theatre and dance are musical, her music is often 
theatrical, and her voice dances." The Seattle Sun 
said: "Meredith Monk may change your definition, 
or at least expand your ideas, about music." 

In addition to the preview of "Waltz", the March 
5 performance also included solo vocal music by 
Monk and performances of "Vessel Suite" and 
"Tablet". "Vessel Suite" is drawn from a 1971 opera 
epic on Joan of Arc, while "Tablet" uses instru- 
ments and polyphony to retrace the evolution of 

Western music. 

The March 4 performance featured a music/th- 
eatre/dance performance of the "Plateau Series". 
Eileen Blumenthal, writing i the Village Voice, com- 
mented: "The piece is a kind of symphony, fol- 
lowed by a solo sonata, presenting motifs of wom- 
en interacting with their environment, one an- 
other, and the male world . . with fear, tender- 
ness, hostility, calm acceptance, curiosity ..." 

In addition to the two performances, Meredith 
Monk and The House offered a series of workshops 
to five college students.

The Celebrity Series included an interesting 
mix of individual talent. Featured through the 
series were Nathan Milstein on the violin; Car- 
ol Wincenc on the flute and Kenneth Cooper 
on the harpsichord; Bella Davidovich on the 
piano; and the Verdi Requiem. This last selec- 
tion was performed by the Springfield Sym- 
phony Orchestra, the Symphony Chorus, and 
the Choral Union of the Department of Music 
and Dance at the University. 




"Davidovich clearly belongs to that rarest brebd 
of pianist." NEWSWEEK 


Bella Davidovich, who for thirty years has been 
ranked with Emil Gileis and Sviatoslav Richter as 
one of Russia's formost pianists, performed at the 
Fine Arts Center on Friday, March 6. 

A child prodigy, Bell Davidovich began her for- 
mal training at the age of 6 and her performing 
career at 9. in 1949, she won first prize in the 
prestigious Chopin Competition in Warsaw. She 
performed widely throughout Russia, including 38 
consecutive annual appearances with the Lenin- 
grad outside the USSR, Her emigration in 1978 was 
followed by her American recital debut at Carne- 
gie Hall in October, 1979 — an event described by 
New York's Daily News as "The most eagerly 
awaited piano recital in many seasons" and one 
"that exceeded even the highest expectations." 

The Fine Arts Center concert included Schu- 
bert's Sonata in B flat. Op. Posthumous and Four 
Ballades by Chopin, who has always been her fa- 
vorite composer.

National Theatre Of The Deaf 

Homer's Iliad was given a modern touch when 
the National Theatre of the Deaf performed "The 
Iliad, Play by Play" on Tuesday, February 10 at the 
University of Massachusetts Fine Arts Center in 

Written by deaf playwright Shanny Mow and di- 
rected by deaf director Edward Waterstreet, the 
National Theatre of the Deaf's adaptation satirized 
the heroic myth. The Trojans war agains each oth- 
er in a make-believe football stadium and, accord- 
ing to the game plan of the gods, are destined to 
face off on the fifty fifty-yard line. The first act, 
or in this case, half, poked fun at the cult of the 
superhero, while the second showed the super- 
hero, Achilles, in his own struggle against fate. 
Throughout the play, modern-day humor leavened 
ancient Greek philosophy; "Mean Joe Achilles", for 
example, was presented with a bottle of Coca Cola 
by an adoring fan. 

The Iliad, like other National Theatre of the Deaf 
productions, emphasized gesture, although the 
words were spoken by interpreters. According to 
founder David Hayes, "With signing, every part of 
the body works to inflect color, to tilt the words 
toward full emotional meaning. 

The national Theatre of the Deaf's appearance 
was being offered in co-operation with the Office 
of Handicapped Student Affairs. February 10 was 
also "Handicap Awareness Day" on campus.

The New Globe Theatre, a special group of ac- 
tors, brought to this University four very special 
productions during the season of 1980-81. They 
were: The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, 
Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen, Candida by George 
Bernard Shaw, and As You Like It by William Shake- 

All of these shows are classics and the perfor- 
mances provided made them even more memora-

The special attractions for the 1980-81 season at 
the Fine Arts Center included: Marcel Marceau, a 
performance by the National Theatre of the Deaf, 
and a performance by the Canadian Brass. These 
specials appealed to varied audiences-, none were 
disappointed by the presentations. 

Marcel Marceau, "the world's greatest mime", 
returned to UMass for the sixth consecutive year 
to perform at the Fine Arts Center on Saturday. 
February 21. 1981. 

Marceau. who feels he was a "born mime", is one 
of the most widely- travelled stage personalities in 
the world today. His character, Bip. and such rou- 
tines as "The Cage" and "Walking Against the 
Wind", have become international classics, while 
each year he creates new spaces for audiences to 
see as an artist creates new sculptures. Le Figaro, 
published in his native France, said of him recent- 
ly, "If you have not seen him, you must gO; if you 
have already seen him, you must return." 

Marceau especially enjoys his tours of college 
campuses. In an interview with the Daily Collegian 
during his fifth sold-out appearance at the Univer- 
sity, he explained. "On the campuses, we have the 
greatest enthusiasm, the greatest energy, and the 
greatest expectations." He did not let the Univer- 
sity down.

Student productions: UMass students doing 
what they do best and love best. Singing, dancing, 
acting, directing, writing, producing. They cover 
all facets of the world of performing arts. 

Included in the lineup for 1980-81 were: Jesus 
Christ. Superstar, Travesties diwd the UMass Danc- 
ers, to name only a few. All performances were 
enthusiastically received by their audiences. No- 
teably, Jesus Christ, Superstar was received very 
well by UMass students: after word got out con- 
cerning the preview and all shows were conse- 
quently sold out. Reviews ranged from "Terrific" 
to "Wonderful" to "Don't miss it, it was great!" 
Needless to say, the response was rather positive. 

UMass students continue to sing, dance, art, 
direct, write, and produce their hearts out, giving 
the best to the stage and to their fellow students. 



The Broadway series at the Fine Arts Center for 
1980-81 included the shows: A Chorus Line, Danc- 
ing', Elephant Man, and Ain't Misbehavin'. All of 
the shows were enthusiastically received and 
played to sold-out audiences. In fact, afternoon 
performances were added in order to accomodate 
the demand for tickets. 

The troupes performed beautifully and did not at 
all disappoint the crowds that awaited them. Al- 
though not New York City, the performers dis- 
played the talent and professionalism of Broadway 
and the audiences responded in kind.

The Elephant Mam a story of a man with a dis- 
ease that has caused severe physical deformities. 
Used as a freak in a sideshow, he is ultimately 
taken to a hospital where he is treated like a hu- 
man being. However, by not interacting with peo- 
ple, he has retained his childlike innocence, as well 
as the ability to look at society with eyes clear of 
socialization. It is only when he enters the hospital 
that he is exposed to society in such a way to put 
constraints on him. 

The playwright, Bernard Pomerance, makes in- 

teresting comments on society through both John 
Merrick, the Elephant man, and Fredrick Treves, 
the doctor who befriends him. It is a story of 
society crushing the free spirit of a man when that 
is all he has. The intentions are good; the results 
are deadly. 

The Elephant Man is based on a true story of a 
man living in England during the Victorian era. The 
deformities mentioned earlier were suggested by 
body posture and the use of the actor's voice. The 
acting was outstanding by all of the performers. 

Is there any 
connecrion between 
Greek living and Southwest? 
Off campus housing ond Orchard Hill? Yes, 
we're all connected with and by the living 
experience (and what on experience it is!) 
here at UMass. Comnnuter or Greek, 
Southwest or Central, we oil 
know, sooner or 
later, the meaning 
of parties, 

all-nighters ond 

road trips. 




^ ^ \ I 




UMASS has a different meaning to every per- 
son. To the townspeople UMass is a source of 
entertainment, employment, information, and to 
some, a pain-in-the neck 

To the faculty UMass is an employer, a future, a 
past, a source of committment and involvement 

To the administration UMass is a source of long 
hours, struggles, no result?; nnd constant oonosi- 

To the students UMass is all of the above and 
more . . .

Central Area is located in the 
central part of Campus. It has 
ten closely knit dorms that pro- 
vide a cummunity spirit not 
found in other areas. Central has 
a tradition of dorm and student 
interaction through outdoor 
fairs, concerts, and sports. The 
area was the originator of the 
now campus — wide Coffee 
House. In the Fall, the major di- 
versions of the students are par- 
ties, footballs, and frisbees. 
While in the spring the hill is 
adorned by sun worshippers 
who gather in groups to escape 
from daily pressures of college 
life. In general Central Area is 
characterized by a well round- 
ed balance of parties, activities, 
and study.

My first night at UMass as a freshman, I 
was awake all night pondering my chances 
of surviving my first year away from home. 
It must have been, at the most, two weeks 
before UMass became "home" to me. 

I lived in Northeast for my first three 
years of school. NE is a traditional appear- 
ing living area with nine dorms and a quad 
which is great for sunbathing, frisbee, 
Softball, and partying. 

I did survive my freshman year at UMass 
and am now a senior living off-campus. I 
am finding that I miss the community spir- 
it that was very evident in Northeast. It 
was a terrific place to mellow out, to study 
or to party. There was always someone 
else pulling an allnighter for that chemis- 
try exam, and 1 was never alone when 1 did 
my laundry at odd hours in the early 
morning. There is a special closeness be- 
tween the residents that lasts even after 
you have left the area. I am still living with 
that closeness because my apartment- 
mates are two people I met that terrifying 
first day at UMass, one is from Thatcher, 
and the other is my roommate from Mary 
Lyons. Whenever we sit around and talk 
about our early days of college (as all aging 
seniors do), one of us always ends the 
night with "Goodnight Mary Lyons" . . . 
"Goodnight Thatcher."

classrooms, kitchenettes, and recreational 
equipment. The Hilltop Snack Dor in Field 
serves subs and ice cream. 

The area is "clustered" into two groups 
of two houses, with total populations of

1980 will long be remembered by future generations as the year of change 
at UMass. Outdated traditions and institutions, such as the mobbing of the 
Campus Center during Halloween, and the end of the Bluewall as we have 
known it, have been displaced by new values. Perhaps the most startling 
change of all as recorded by the Sociology department was the upheaval of 
marijuana and alcohol as the most common drugs on campus, replaced by an 
even more dangerous fix, l<nown by its street name simply as "General Hospi- 

While the drug had been available for some time, heavy usage was limited 
to a few who had been addicted since childhood. But this addiction; known by 
the scientific name "Quartermaine-on-the-brain" proved to be more epidemic 
than the dreaded strain of "Eight oclockincalculiblowoffus." 

Unlike most drugs which can be consumed at any time, "GH" is only avail- 
able at a certain hour, unless the addict uses a betamax stimulant. "GH" has 
become very accessable to the addicts, with the most common dispensary 
located in the bottom of the Campus Center, where in daily ritual, hundreds of 
GH fans pay homage to their gods and receive dispensation in return. 

What made the emergence of GH so dramatic was the openess of hundreds 
of GH addicts, who after spending years with their addiction came out of the 
closet and take pride in their hobby. Laughed at for years, they were the new 
social "chic" of 1980, beating Box Car Willie by a wide margin. 

This newfound boldness was exhibited at parties; the same people who only 
last year talked about Slim Whitman were now discussing the fate of Luke and 
Laura feverishly. Observers frequently noted the glazed look in their eyes as 
they babbled incoherently about the rushes they received from their latest fix. 
More and more people who overheard the conversation would join in, until 
finally the entire party stood there in a dazed state, chanting "GH . . . GH . . . 

Unsuspecting students fell prey to the growing menace. A frequent cry 
heard around campus was "I'll try it just once . . . These same formers aca- 
demic marvels could be found two weeks later in the bottom of the CC during 
^he afternoon with the same glazed look in their eyes. 

University officials are at a loss to explain the phenomenon. Theories have 
ranged from sunspots to the demise of "Guiding Light", but the popularity of 
'^GH increases in leaps and bounds. Addicts insist there is no peak to this trend, 
and for the time being, there is no reason no doubt them. 

The GH affliction seems to strike every, one, regardless of race, creed, color. 
Thousands are making no plans between the hours of 3 • 4 P.M., pushing little 
old ladies out of chairs, so that like the marijuana and alcohol addicts before 
them, they can sit in a corner, and take it all in. In the meantime, the Sociolo- 
gists who discovered this trend are still trying to reason out the most perplex- 
ing issue raised by the GH phenomenon namely, who did shoot J.R. anyway?

Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwest Southwest Soi 

Southwest: an interesting combina- 
tion of academia and suburbia. It is the 
largest living area on campus and the 
most intimate. Its size demands inti- 
macy; small groups of people band to- 
gether as common interests and di- 
verse opinions bring them closer to 
each other. 

This may sound odd, but after living 
in Southwest for three years, I still feel 
that although I know it, there are 
some qualities and aspects of South- 
west that are alluding me. Southwest 
is the living area that is best depicted 
by Billy Joel's song, "The Stranger". 
Southwest is that person with many 
different faces. Each is tried on, and 
for those who see them, each is re- 
membered. Each mood of Southwest 
compliments and contradicts the oth- 

Many people seeing the partying, 
the rowdiness, the craziness of 5500 
people on one quarter square mile 
that is the foundation of Southwest. 
Anyone can see that, just come down 
on a weekend night- the entertain- 
ment is quite amusing. To really knbw 
the five towers and eleven low-rises, 
you must live there. Then you start to 
become familar with the quiet that 
exists: the horseshoe at 2A.M., the 
barbeque pits at sunset, sunrise over 
JQA. You also experience the anger 

and frustration of people shouting out 
windows at all hours of the night. You 
see the confusion as you go through 
the line at the DC or as you watch 
newcomers look for dorms. You see 
the intricacies of it as multitudes of 
people weave in and out along the 
walkways, blending with trucks, cars 
and frisbees- never bumping in to 
anything else, everyone carefully 
making a path of his or her own. You 
share love with others: a couple hold- 
ing hands in the DC, or with their 
arms around each other or quietly 
talking and kissing on the rocks as the 
sun sets. These are the moments 
when you realize that Southwest is 
everything you want it to be- and 
more. It can reflect all of your moods 
and still have some left over for the 
rest of its residents. 

it is these times that you realize how 
many people live in Southwest. There 
is no way to deal with the reality of 
5500 students surrounded by con- 
crete and brick. At times, the dorm 
can even be too big to feel like home. 
There is a small group of friends to 
whom you are close that make South- 
west home. For me, it was my floor. 
We were a close-knit group - a family. 
We were all different, and we lived 
together comfortably, knowing each 
other and sharing mutual occurences 

on the floor. 

Southwest is also a place of learning. 
For, like Orchard Hill, Southwest is a 
residential college. Classes are taught 
in lounges and classrooms in the 
dorms. It give people the opportunity 
to literally live and learn. Any student 
from the university can participate in 
Southwest courses, but only the resi- 
dents can appreciate the luxury of 
getting up ten minutes before class 
and not worry about getting there on 
time because it is only two floors 
down from your room. 

In closing, I can only say that South- 
west reminds me of a beautiful wom- 
an, pleasant to look at and full of sur- 
prises and mysteries. She is intelligent, 
unexpectedly insightful, moody, 
motherly. She has personality; she is 
loving and yet cold. Southwest is 
more than just buildings that can be 
seen from as far as Holyoke- it is an 
opportunity to learn. Most people 
take Southwest at face value, some of 
us get to know it. Somehow, though, 1 
don't think anyone could ever know 
Southwest completely- it's too com- 
plex, too mysterious, too big and too 
intimate to ever see and hear and 
touch and experience all that South- 
west is and all it has to offer.

The Fraternity system at the University of 
Massachusetts is one of the best ways to exper- 
ience UMass life. Fraternity living is for people 
who wish to become involved and to pursue a 
variety of interests while in college. There are 15 
fraternities on the campus including local, na- 
tional, and one coed group. All chapters have 
different values and interests, but share the 
same bond of brotherhood. 

Fraternity involvement is not just a collegiate 
experience but extends beyond graduation, 
with the organization of alumni groups. Alumni 
are an important part of chapter functioning. 

The Fraternity experience can be the most 
rewarding and influencing living experiences of

It never quite hits you until you put 
your signature on the lease. Until then, it 
was just one of your wildest fantasies. You 
stopped counting how many times you 
were over at a friend's apartment, green 
with envy because you wanted a place 
you could call your own. No parents ask- 
ing what time you got in last night, no one 
to scream when you light up a joint in the 
living room, no one to tell you to finish 
your vegetables at dinner time. Hell, you 
don't even have to serve vegetables once 
you have your own place. 

it seems so simple, too. All you need is 
your name down on that precious piece 
of paper. September comes and the 
UHaul is carefully packed. You're just 
bringing up clothes and the stereo. (Ever 
notice now helpful parents are when it 
comes to packing the stereo?) But now 
there's a bed (Grandma's), a dresser (next 
door neighbor's), and kitchen utensils 
(Lusterware, as seen on T.V.). 

You drive up to the door, proudly hold- 
ing the key and the lock is quickly and 
successfully mastered. With a great burst 
of excitement, you open the door of your 
new Camelot, and the dream ends. 

Your place is a mess. The previous ten- 
ants, in a hurry to leave, never bothered 
to clean. Nor did the landlord, for that 
matter. You look around, trying to get an 
idea of where to start when your parents 
dump all of your stuff on the front lawn 
and wave good-bye. It's all yours. 

You spend two days in S and M. (That's 
scrubbing and mopping, for those "in the 
know"- as we apartment folk say.) Now it 
is time for your first party. The gang 
comes, drinks, spills, and leaves. You Took 
at your place and suddenly realize that 
you actually have to clean up after your 
own parties. Yes, Virgina, there is no maid. 

But if you can dealdeal with that, and at 
the same time cope with continuous fi- 
nancial problems (Did your parents ever 
mention electric bills?), then off-campus 
living is for you

UMass students will never 
forget the day school closed be- 
cause of a water shortage. On 
September 4, 1980 at noon. 
Chancellor Henry Koffler de- 
clared UMass closed and or- 
dered 10,400 dormitory resi- 
dents to evacuate. Soon the 
streets of Amherst were over- 
flowing with bus convoys, 
packed cars, and hitchhikers 
going home. 

The University closing and 
resulting mass exodus need not 
have occurred. School officials 
knew that the town water 
sources in Pelham were low due 
to an unusually dry summer. 
The new well being dug in Am- 
herst's Lawrence Swamp area 
wasn't completed yet. The Uni- 
versity probably shouldn't have 
opened at all. The key event of 
the water crisis occurred on 

Tuesday, September 2nd. A low 
water alarm went off in the 
Amherst fire station indicating 
the water towers were almost 
empty. Whoever was there ig- 
nored the alarm. Town Man- 
ager Louis Hayward didn't 
know of the critical situation 
until 34 hours later-6:45 
Wednesday night. He found 
out too late. Southwest and Or- 
chard Hill were the first areas to 
be waterless, and by midnight 
25 dormitories were dry. 

Dormitory bathrooms were 
useless forcing some residents 
to take "nature walks". Hot, 
humid weather kept everybody 
sticky. The shores of nearby 
Puffer's Pond were full of stu- 
dents washing up. Those who 
got the last hot showers were 
the envy of their neighbors. 

The next morning, word 

spread fast that school had 
closed, (even national wire ser- 
vices picked up the story.) Ad- 
ditional buses were secured 
from Peter Pan Lines in Spring- 
field and students had to wait 
in long lines to get on one. 
Those with cars gave friends 
rides home. By 7:00 P.M. the 
campus was deserted. School 
would re-open on Sunday. By 
then, enough water could be 
brought from Hadly, Amherst's 
water-rich neighbor. 

Students returned to school 
and town officials apoligized 
and promised the students re- 
imbursement for the time spent 
out of their rooms. The Law- 
rence Well was completed in 
October, and officials are confi- 
dent that a repeat performance 
will never occur.

While Washington D.C. was 
still reeling from the effects of 
the November election, a group 
of about 40 UMass students de- 
scended on the nation's capitol 
to lobby for increased financial 
aid funding. 

The group, which included 
many members of a course in 
the legislative process, political 
science 305, spent two days and 
nights on capitol hill talking to 
legislators and their aides. 

Their goal was to have con- 
gress provide more money for 
financial aid programs. Soon 
after the semester started, the 
Financial Aid Office had sent 
out letters telling them that 
their awards had been cut 
somewhat. The reason for the 
cuts was that legislation had 
made more students eligible for 
money, but additional funds 
had not been provided. 

The students met, both col- 
lectively and individually, with 
Massachusetts Senators Paul 
Tsongas and Edward Kennedy. 
Representatives Silvio Conte, 
Edward Markey, Brian Donne- 
ly and others. Nearly all the 
senators and representatives on 
the appropriations committee 
were contacted, either personal- 
ly or through their aides, as 

were most members of the 
Massachusetts delegaion. 

The bill to provide funds for 
financial aid programs was 
hung up due to differences be- 
tween the house and senate, and 
the matter was placed on "con- 
tinuing resolution" or a main- 
tenence of last year's funding of 
$4.2 billion. The students want- 
ed an additional $1.8 billion to 
make up for the additional stu- 
dents eligible, but legislators 
were reluctant to provide the 

While the lobbying effort 
was not directly successful, 
both the students and law- 
makers said they felt that they 
had made some sort of impact 
and that their voices were 

"1 learned more in these two 
days than I ever would in a 
classroom type situation. I feel 
like I know how politics works 
and how I can work in it," said 
class member Christine Gillis. 

"Although we didn't change 
history, we made an impact," 
said Fran Bisonette, a junior fi- 
nance major. "It was a good 
learning process and we could 
do a lot more in this area. Our 
potential is unlimited to orga- 
nize around this issue. Students 

should realize that these issues 
affect them. You can have an 
impact, you just have to take jj 
the initiative." %\ 

Professors Grady and Apo- 
daca, who accompanied the stu- 
dents, said that they were hap- 
py with the results of the trip 
and with the way the students 
handled the situation. 

"They (the students) realized 
that the government is open 
and willing and that they can 
make a difference. They learned 
they don't have to protest," 
Grady said. 

"I really was extremely 
pleased with the results of the 
trip," said Professor Apodaca, 
"I felt the students worked hard 
and were a lot more successful 
than people realized. We defi- 
nitely need more student in- 
volvement, especially if it is as «. 
organized as this." HI 

Soon after the group returned 
from Washington, the decision 
was made to continue the fi- 
nancial aid fight. The group, 
calling itself SAFA, Students 
Advocating Financial Aid, will 
continue to organize around the 
issue and possibly return to the 
capitol for further lobbying ef-

Yes, there was more than one 

shutdown, that is. It was 
known as the "Halloween Shut- 
down", and it too lasted only 
one weekend; October 30, 31, 
and November 1. No guests 
were allowed in the dorms, se- 
curity was doubled, and the 
Campus Center was closed. 
That's right: closed, empty, DE- 

That was probably the scar- 
iest scene of the entire evening, 
considering it had almost be- 
come a ritual for thousands of 
students and guests to literally 
innundate the Campus Center 
and celebrate Halloween with a 
massive party. The tradition 
has been broken, unfortunately 
because too much of the Uni- 
versity's property had been 
broken in the past. Reports of 
vandalism, rapes, and just plain 
unrulyness during past Hal- 
loween weekends forced the 

University Administration to 
think twice about holding the 
festivities this year. So, on Oc- 
tober 7th, Vice Chancellor 
George Beatty confirmed the 
administration's decision to 
close the campus on Halloween 

Shortly thereafter, residents 
in at least one of the nearby 
apartment complexes were in- 
formed that parties held on 
Halloween Weekend would be 
restricted. Guest lists were re- 
quested, and only twenty-five 
guests were permitted to attend. 
Security was also tightened 

The shutdown was not in- 
curred to cramp our style. Au 
contrare, it was for "our own 
good" (so to speak). We were 
attracting too many wierdos, 
too many people who were hell- 
bent on causing trouble just be- 

cause it was Halloween. (Was 
this our fault?) Apparently, stu- 
dents and guests alike were be- 
ing subjected to the possibility 
of injury when they attended 
the large, rowdy party in the 
Campus Center, and that is just 
too dangerous for everyone in- 
volved. We needed the shut- 
down to keep all these people 
out, and avoid problems within 
the University and with the me- 

Well, this year, we proved to 
the administration, the media, 
and to ourselves that we could 
enjoy Halloween without hav- 
ing problems. There were nu- 
merous small parties on and off 
campus, however none present- 
ed problems as we've had in the 
past, and thanks to the campus 
fraternities and sororities, there 
wasn't even a clean up problem 
for Physical Plant to deal with. 

Perhaps we needed to break 
our tradition, perhaps it was 
necessary to be strict this year, 
and keep the wierdos in check, 
as long as the students who be- 
long here have a good time . . .

The Campus Center Board of 
Governors (BOG) voted unani- 
mously last April to "authorize 
preparation" of a plan to in- 
crease student input into pro- 
posed renovations to the Uni- 
versity Store, tentatively sched- 
uled to begin during the sum- 
mer of '81'. 

The authorization of the plan 
was approved as a result of an 
original motion passed by the 
board on February 26, which set 
up a "formal procedure" for the 
board's involvement in Cam- 
pus Center/Student Union ren- 
ovations costing over $5,000. 
The proposed renovations to 
the University store are esti- 
mated to cost around $120,000.

low priority for Physical Plant. 

Fieman believes that an effi- 
cient landscape design will 
eliminate dirt paths and bring 
out the beauty of the campus.

The summer of 1982 is the 
target date for completion of 
work on the problem plauged 
library, according to a written 
statement from Chancellor 
Henry Koffler. At that time, the 
library will resume full service 
to the University. 

In a report submitted to the 
University by Simpson, Gu- 
mertz, and Hegar, an engineer- 
ing consulting firm from Cam- 
bridge, the firm outlined what 
had to be done on the tower li- 

Problems with brick veneer 
on the structure, forced Univer- 
sity officials to close the library 
last year. "The awarding of con- 
tracts for the repair work will 
be made by this winter," said 

Internal alterations for the li- 
brary will be completed by the 
spring of 1982. 

Although the University was 
appropriated $2.5 million for 
the work by the State Legisla- 
ture, some uncertainties still re- 
main about the actual costs for 
the repairs to the masony ve- 
neer on the library. 

"The Goodell library, pro- 
vided the main library service 
to UMASS since the close of the 
library, will serve the Universi- 
ty in this capacity until repairs 
to the tower are completed," 
Koffler's statement said. 

Richard Talbot, director of 
Goodell, said, "When the tower 
library is repaired, Goodell will 
cease to function as the main 
library. The library will take on 
functions similar to the ones it 
provided before the close of the 
University Library."

... AND 

Entomologists at UMASS 
used natural preditors instead 
of insecticides to rid their quar- 
ters in Fernald Hall of insect 

Professors Roy Vandriesche 
and Joseph Elkinton plan to de- 
ploy pinhead-sized wasps to 
attack the brown-banded cock- 
roaches that inhabit the build- 
ing. The wasps attack cock- 
roach egg cases. The researches 
explained that they can't use or- 
dinary insecticides to kill cock- 
roaches in the building because 
they might kill the insect popu- 
lations used for research as 
well. While they are busy rid- 
ding the building of cock- 
roaches, the researches also 
have launched a study on how 
to control a "wild population" 
of cockroaches by natural 


The first step of their study, 
they said, is to assess what the 
natural population of cock- 
roaches is in the building so 
that they will be able to deter- 
mine how effective the tiny 
wasps are in cockroach control. 
This involves capturing cock- 
roaches, putting identifying 
numbers on them, and releas- 
ing them again. This capture- 
recapture process will be re- 
peated over a period of weeks 
until a mathematical estimate 
of the size of the cockroach 
population can be determined.

A Chapter In The History Of S.G.A. 

In October, the student gov- 
ernment began the annual pro- 
cess of choosing members of 
the Undergraduate Student 
Senate. The event traditionally 
draws little attention, and is 
hardly noticed by the student 
body as a whole. In the fall of 
1980, however, the elections 
were noticed and the controver- 
sy which ensued divided people 
in all areas of the University. 

Weeks before the elections, a 
group of students from various 
organizations and backgrounds 
got together to form a coalition 
to represent their needs. Calling 
themselves the Progressive Stu- 
dent Alliance, the group began 
running members for the sen- 
ate and seemed to pick up much 
support with an effective, 
grass-roots organization. 

Shortly before the elections, 
about thirty other students on 
the ballot for commuter seats, 
who were not members of the 
PSA, began to worry about 
their own futures. So, to coun- 
teract the strength of the PSA 
the candidates began to distrib- 
ute stickers, bearing the names 
of most of the non-PSA candi- 
dates. The stickers, voters were 

told, were to be affixed to the 
ballots and handed in. 

The trouble began just before 
the ballots were tabulated when 
Diane Mueller, chair of the sen- 
ate Governmental Affairs Com- 
mittee, announced that the 
stickers were invalid markings 
and ballots containing them 
would not be counted. State 
law, Mueller said, prohibits 
sticker votes for candidates 
whose names' already appear 
on the ballot. The "sticker can- 
didates" disagreed, arguing that 
state law does not pertain to 
student elections. 

As the ballots were being 
counted in Dickinson Hall, and 
as it became clear that the PSA 
had easily won the election, 
Mueller changed her mind and 
announced that the sticker 
votes would be counted. As the 
candidates loudly argued (at 
one point getting so loud that 
they drew the attention of offi- 
cers in the nearby UMass police 
station) the counting continued 
and, ultimately, the PSA had 
scored a big victory. 

But the controversy had not 
ended. The Senate Coordinat- 
ing Committee, seeing the in- 

consistencies in the election, 
overturned the election results. 
The same week, however, the 
full senate overturned the Co- 
ordinating Committees find- 
ings, and promptly seated the 
new senate. 

Shortly after the senate's de- 
cision, several people filed suits 
in the student courts seeking to 
invalidate the elections on the 
grounds that Mueller should 
not have made any decisions 
since she, too, appered on the 
ballot as a PSA candidate. 

Several weeks later, after 
many hours of stormy and 
heated court action, a student 
court at the very end of the fall 
semester, announced that it 
could not decide the case, but 
did issue an injunction, barring 
all students elected from serv- 
ing in the senate. A new trial 
was ordered to begin in the 

The case went to "the tribunal 
in March. Yet, as the semester 
came to a close, no decision was 
announced. Most of the people 
involved in the case were set to 
graduate and the whole issue 
appears to be moot.

The PVTA; Pioneer Valley 
Transit Authority, has seen to it 
that I, as a resident in this val- 
ley have been able to get to 
classes, to get to off campus 
jarties, & to see the mall, 
Slorthampton, and Mt. Sugar- 
oaf. The best part of it all, is 
that it didn't cost me a cent. The 

fare for most UMASS students 
is paid for from our student ac- 
tivity fee, so whether or we ride 
the bus or not, we pay for it's 
service long before we ever ar- 
rive on campus. 

The PVTA is one of the lar- 
gest transit sytems in the 
world, serving the entire Pio- 

neer Valley. There is now a sub- 
sidary U Mass Transit System 
with at least 32 buses on cam- 
pus and over 140 workers. Re- 
cently, 12 handicap buses were 
acquired to further the service, 
and special drivers are trained 
to run them. There are at least 
six routes running all week 
long, and each runs for at least 
12 hours day. 

Judging from the cleanliness 
and quality of the entire sys- 
tem, it is no small wonder to me 
that so many people are not 
only using the bus, but are con- 
stantly wondering when the 
last one came and the next one 
is coming.

bus boarded at the Campus 
Center and at Southwest, 
stopped transporting UMASS 
students to the Hampshire Mall 
on November 9, 1980. 

The effect of the bus's dis- 
continuance on business is var- 
ied. Arlene Marcheselli, man- 
ager of The Lodge, said sales 
had dropped "a little". The 
"Annie Hauler" was a "conve- 
nient means of transportation 
and free," she said. 

An employee of Walden 
Books, John Otis said that the 
bookstore's business had not 
been affected. Lisa Mascis of 
Tagway Shoe store also said her 
place of employment had not 
been adversely affected. 

"The kids can get here one 
way or another. If the PVTA 
(Pioneer Valley Transit Author- 
ity) were cut off, I'm sure we'd 
feel it," Mascis said. The PVTA 
added stops near the shopping 
center on the Amherst-North- 
ampton route after the free bus 


was cancelled. 

Dick Allen, manager of JC 
Penny, said it is hard to access 
the impact of the "Annie Haul- 
er". The mall's overall business 
has been improving due to mat- 
uration, Allen said. The bus, 
which had originally been part 
of a promotion, had become too 

expensive, he said. In 1978, 
when the mall opened and the 
free bus was introduced, gaso- 
line was approximately 58<t: a 
gallon, Allen said, "naturally 
we would be tickled to death if 
we had it, but I understand the 
decision to discontinue it," he 

said. -Melissa Galagher 


spring Concert Becomes Community Day 

"Sorry, but no food, drink, 
cans, containers of any kind, or 
green socks will be allowed into 
the stadium." That's the way 
the advertisements for "Com- 
munity Day" ran this year. 

Gone is the heyday of Spring 
Concert. Gone are the times 
when students planned for 
weeks the ways in which they 
would get their picnic lunches 
together and smuggle in beers 
for "Spring Concert", the one 
day a year when the entire uni- 
versity could get together, for- 
get the rest of the world, and 
simply enjoy themselves. Nev- 
er again will names like "Great- 

ful Dead" and "Allman Broth- 
ers" be seen on the program for 
the spring event. 

"Community Day" is the cul- 
mination of Community Week 
for the Amherst-Hadley area, 
where in the past. Spring Con- 
cert was set apart as the only 
day when the entire student 
body from the five-college area 
could get together. Not only 
has the entire purpose of the 
concert changed, but so many 
restrictions have been placed 
upon the event that, as Sopho- 
more Roni Smith describes it, 
"Spring Concert has become 
Spring Headache." 

Only 6,500 people attended 
this year's low-key event. In 
contast to Spring Concerts of 
the past two years, when atten- 
dence reached 30,000, there 
were no arrests and few other 
problems of any nature. 

Although performers Bonnie 
Raitt, John Hall, and B.B. King 
gave a top-rate show, few peo- 
ple feel as though they missed 
anything important. Senior 
Caren Troia summed it up 
when she commented, "things 
are tough when you can't even 
have a picnic lunch while you 
listen to the music. 


Dormitory bathrooms at 
UMass, many of which have 
been co-ed since 1971, were 
turned into single-sex facilities 
at the beginning of fall semes- 
ter 1981. 

Marjorie Lenn, the director of 
residential life, sent a memo to 
dormitory staff members last 
February stating that the 
change was brought about by 
increasing concern among par- 
ents and students" who are dis- 
turbed by the sharing of hereto- 
for 'private space'!" 

Lenn's memo also stated that 
the Massachusetts State Plumb- 
ing Code requires separate toi- 
let facilities although it does 

not prohibit coed bathrooms. 

Under the proposed policy, 
in dormitories which have two 
bathrooms, one will be for men 
and the other will be for wom- 

Where there is only one bath- 
room on a floor, it will be de- 
signed for either male or female 
use. Men or Women who live 
on a floor where there is an op- 
posite sex bathroom will have 
to go to another floor. Accord- 
ing to the memo, state regula- 
tions require that a bathroom 
may not be more than one floor 
from a person's room. 

In a single-sex dorm, visi- 
tors of the opposite sex will 

be required to use the dorm's 
public facilities. 

The memo stated that dorms 
in the Northeast Residential 
Area and the highrise dorms in 
Southwest will present the 
greatest problems in imple- 
menting a new policy because 
they have a single bathroom on 
each floor. 

The low-rise dorms in South- 
west and dorms in Central, Or- 
chard Hill, and Sylvan Residen- 
tial Areas would be simpler to 
change to adhere to the policy 
because the buildings have 
more than one bathroom on 
each floor, the memo stated.

Organized student protests 
are mounting against the 
47,000, newly renovated mini 
store in the Student Union lob- 
by as it nears completion. 

The Student Coalition for 
Educational Research and Ad- 
vocacy, (SCERA), has set up a 
table across from the renova- 
tion worksight and are collect- 
ing signatures for a petition. 
They are making the following 
demands: that the Student 
Union Mini Store be made 
accessable to handicapped peo- 
ple; that the mini store be stu- 
dent controlled and student op- 
erated; that all revenue received 
be controlled by students; that 
all renovations over $5,000 
within the Campus Center/Stu- 
dent Union complex be decided 
upon from both the Graduate 
and Undergraduate Student 

SCERA's dissatisfaction 

stems from the fact that the 
Board of Governors never took 
a vote to approve renovating 
the candy counter into the mini 
store. SCERA member Arvid 
Muller described other projects 
which he felt were deserving of 

"Just look at the ceiling its 
falling apart," said Muller. "We 
have leaky ceilings and electri- 
cal problems which are a fire 
hazard. This mini store is an 
incredible slap in the face to 

The mini store, which was 
supposed to be completed to- 
day, went under contract on 
September 6, 1980. The plans as 
they were originally presented 
to the Board of Governors, a 
student group which oversees 
the Campus Center Complex, 
proposed the construction of a 
sweet shop to be located across 
from the University Store. The 

proposal was rejected as it 
stood. The BOG never did ap- 
prove the construction of the 
mini store. 

Another protest group, com- 
posed of 40 UMass students has 
filed a complaint in Hampshire 
County Superior Court claim- 
ing that the Board of Trustees 
illegally approved the renova- 
tions of the student union mini 
store and raised residence hall 

Campus Center Director 
William Harris described the 
goal of the new store as offering 
a much nicer atmosphere and 
being an overall improvement 
over the candy county. 

Abramoff, however, said she 
agree that changes are needed 
for a better liason between ad- 
ministration and students.

D.V.P. has brought us many challenging 
speakers, ones that many of us will not soon 
forget. Here's a small sampling . . . 


On September 23rd, 1980, 
controversial personality G. 
Gordon Liddy visited the Fine 
Arts Center at UMass to kick 
off his national lecturing tour. 
Liddy's history includes a stint 
with the F.B.I, and a top post in 
the Nixon Administration 
where he directed the famous 
EUsberg and Watergate break- 
ins. He was sentenced to jail 
but was commuted by Presi- 
dent Carter. Because of his past, 
many students objected to his 
presence on campus. The Dis- 
tinguished Visitors Program 
invited pacifist Daniel Ellsberg 
to speak later in the semester to 
hear the other side. 

Liddy delivered a strong 
speach which included a cri- 
tique of American weaknesses 
and an overview of Washington 
behind closed doors. 

Students were able to ask 
questions and Liddy fielded 
them brilliantly in his autheri- 
tative speaking style. When 
asked about national security 
he said the underlying cause of 
U.S. weakness is the people's il- 
lusion of their power that one 
finds nowhere else. 

After the lecture Liddy ex- 
pressed surprise at the amount 
of respect given him. He noted 
that the student today is not as 
rebellious as a few years back. 
Student reactions ranged from 
"a genious", to "he's a fascist".

Comedian and social activist, 
Dick Gregory appeared at the 
Student Union Ball Room on 
Nov. 6th, 1980 to speak to a 
crowd of 900 students and fac- 
ulty members about his inter- 
pretations of social problems: 
Social or Anti-Social? 

Although the prospective to- 
pics of concern included the 
KKK, the Nobel Peace Prize, 
the Superpowers vs. Islam, etc., 
they were more like tools used 
to introduce Gregory's main 
theme, the CIA and their role in 
the government. 

As soon as Gregory stepped 
to the podium, he began analyz- 
ing matters with his witty fer- 

"This is a dingy old room. It 
looks like a place where Jimmy 
Carter and Ronald Reagan 
should spent the rest of their 
lives," he said. 

The crowd could have contin- 
ued at this pace for an extended 
time. However, almost as sud- 
denly as he began, and to the 
surprise of the crowd, Gregory 
stopped laughing and said in a 
low voice, "there's a cold day in 
hell when truth has to be invali- 
dated by ignorance." 

"You let the CIA topple ev- 
eryone else's government, why 
not let them come and topple 

By now the audience was 
hushed and attentive, while 
wondering what he was leading 

Gregory claimed that the 
election was the CIA's way of 
moving George Bush, former 
CIA director into the presiden- 
tial seat. n 

He said. It's not Ronald Rea- 
gan, it's George Bush. It was the 
CIA before, and its the CIA 


"The CIA pulled one of the 
biggest ripoffs in American 
history. They are in the process 
of taking over the government 
and there is a pistol upside your 
head, induced into your sub- 
conscience's mind garden." 

Gregory said that, just like 
John F. Kennedy, his Ijrothers, 
Martin Luther King, and Mal- 
colm X, Reagan too would be a 
victim of the CIA hit list. He 
also included that the individ- 
ual who will be blamed for the 
assassination will likely be a 

Gregory entered the enter- 
tainment field in 1961 as a 
comedian and used his talent to 
give benefits for civil rights 
groups, peace groups, and hu- 
man rights groups. 

At 49, the outspoken man is 
known as a recording artist, po- 
litical analyst, critic, author, ac- 
tor, social satirist and philos- 
opher. -Kimberly Green 



Former South Dakota Sena- 
tor George McGovern warned a 
crowd of over a thousand last 
March in the student union 
ballroom of the threat to the na- 
tion by the New Right and the 
policies of President Reagan. 

McGovern said the highly 
organized assault on the sena- 
tors and representatives by the 
Moral Majority posed a threat 
to both the Nation and religion. 

The new right's use of super- 
ficial arguments and influence 
in the religious realm to further 
their own political dogma must 
be met by the clear-thinking 
American, McGovern said. 

Being one of the Senators de- 
feated by the New Right's cam- 
paign, McGovern said he will 
use his time out of office to 
work on a new organization 
called Americans for Common 
Sense (acs). 

The ACS will use the New 
Right's tactics of direct mail 

fund raisers and the use of the 
media to counter attacks 
against liberal office holders 
targeted by the New Right. 

McGovern also condemned 
President Reagan's policy to- 
ward El Salvador as the same 
old arguments used before the 
Viet Nam war. 

Reagan's proposed educa- 
tional cuts were also attacked 
by the former Senator who 
called them a threat to the qual- 
ity of education in the United 

McGovern said the liberal 
defeat of 1980 may be a good 
thing by giving the public the 
chance to test conservatism and 
allowing liberals time to find 
better answers to the same old 

Neither party had solutions 
that were satisfactory he said. 
McGovern cited the fact that 
half the population refused to 
vote as proof of this. 

The Senator also questioned 
the conservative policy of dere- 
gulation of government when 
they were deciding issues such 
as abortion.

Abbie Hoffman, the 1960's 
"Yippie" leader and nationally 
prominent anti-Vietnam war 

activist appeared at the UMass 
Fine Arts Concert Hall on Feb- 
ruary 18, 1981. 

Hoffman, 43, a Worcester na- 
tive, surrendered himself last 
September after living "under- 
ground" for more than six 

Arrested in 1974 for allegedly 
selling cocaine to an undercover 
FBI agent, Hoffman jumped 
bail and went into hiding. 
When he surfaced in Septem- 
ber, Hoffman revealed that he 
had been living on Wellsey Is- 
land in Upstate New York, pos- 
ing as a writer and playing a 
leadership role in a drive to save 
the St. Lawrence River from a 
planned dredging operation. 

As "Barry Fried", Hoffman 
lived with his girlfriend, former 
model Johanna Lawrenson, and 
his 9-year-old son. He testified 
before congressional commit- 
tees in Washington and re- 

ceived letters of commendation 
from New York Gov. Hugh 
Carey for his river conservation 
efforts. Hoffman has also re- 
vealed that he has encountered 
numerous old acquaintences 
while a fugitive, but those peo- 
ple never recognized him after 
he had undergone surgery and 
grown a beard. 

Last September, Hoffman 
surfaced to tell his story, face 
the drug charges, return to the 
political scene and lecture on 
College Campuses. Hoffman 
first gained national promi- 
nence in the 60's during the 
height of the anti-Vietnam war 
effort. A student leader, Hoff-

Sixty Union members at the 
Amerst Nursing Home on Uni- 
versity Drive went on strike on 
September 23rd, 1980 to ask the 
management "for higher wages, 
for retroactive pay, and for the 
right to retain a Union shop," 
according to the Daily Colle- 
gian. After four months of ne- 
gotiations, the non-profession- 
al staff workers walked off of 
their jobs and onto the picket 
lines in front of the Nursing 

Two days later, the UMASS 
Student Senate allocated 
$470.00 to the support of these 
strikers, and three days later, 
they were joined on their line 
by several UMass students. 

Although some people may 
think that UMass students of 
all people should know how to 
stage a peaceful protest, they 
were met with reports of stu- 
dent arrests for tresspassing, 
interferring with employees, 
and disorderly conduct. The 
strike only lasted five days, but 
seven UMASS students faced 
trial on March 16th for charges 
ranging from destruction of 
property to assault and battery 
on a police officer. 

None of the 60 original strik- 
ers was hurt or arrested during 
the protest, so how did the stu- 
dents become involved? 

At a Student Senate Meeting 
held on September 24th, money 
was allotted for videotaping the 
strike, and strike organizer 
Richard Spencer solicited stu- 
dent support. Many students 
answered Spencer's plea and 
went to the picket line, while 
others went simply to exhibit 
their spirit of community sup- 
port for the Union. People who 
started out trying to help the 

Nursing Home workers, wound 
up getting into fights, and caus- 
ing problems by illegally enter- 
ing the home with non-striking 
workers. Fourteen of these 
same "concerned" students 
were arrested, and seven of 
them were fined for their ac- 
tions at the Nursing Home. 

The five days of peaceful, and 
not-so-peaceful picketing re- 
sulted in a new contract for the 
workers, calling for a $1.15 
wage increase over two years, 
retroactive pay to July 1st, a two 

day increase in sick days, and 
an agency fee. Obviously, this 
is of great advantage to the 
workers, but I'm interested in 
knowing what good this whole 
commotion did for the students 
here at UMass that got arrested 
and fined for their cause. 



The Faculty Senate defeated 
by a 33-25 vote a motion to 
change the pass/fail system so 
that only grades of C or better 
be recorded as a P. About 100 
students present broke into 
spirited applause when the vote 
was taken. 

Proposals to refer the motion 
back to the committee and to 
ammend the motion to permit 
C/D's and D's to be recorded as 
a P with the written permission 
of the instructor, was defeated 

SGA treasurer Rich Goldman 
said over 2,000 students signa- 
tures had been collected in less 
than 24 hours in support of the 
present pass/fail system. 

Harry Schumer, chairman of 

the Academic Matters Council 
(AMC) last year when the coun- 
cil developed the motion, said 
there was no doubt that the stu- 
dents had an effect on the vote. 

In a report, the AMC said a 
change in P/F was directly or 
indirectly by the data received 
from the registrar's office indi- 
cating that students who select 
the pass/fail option tend to get 
a greater proportion of CD's 
and D's than those who take 
courses on a graded basis. 

The AMC claims that a lack 
of student effort is mainly to 
blame for the lower student 

Goldman said he was "insult- 
ed by the implication that stu- 
dents neglect their academic re- 

sponsibilities. The statistics 
don't show me how pass/fail is 
being abused." 

The statistics used in the re- 
port are comparisions of grades 
of students who took a course 
P/F and students who took the 
course for a grade. Lower divi- 
sion French, rhetoric, math, 
botany, and sociology courses 
were chosen. 

Goldman questioned the va- 
lidity of the statistics, citing as 
faults a narrow sampling size, 
the fact that the courses exam- 
ined were all freshman level 
courses, and the fact that the 
statistics don't show how many 
students had a P changed to a 
grade to help their average.

"Parle Vous Francais?" 
"dHabla Ud. Espanol?" 
"Can You Speak English?" 

Although most of us can 
speak English to some degree, 
many of us need to broaden our 
knowledge of other cultures by 
learning a second language. 
That is probably why there is a 
requirement for all students in 
the college of arts and sciences 
(CAS) at this University to take 
four semesters of a language. 

In the past, all students in 
CAS took the courses to fulfill 
this requirement, but as of 
April 15th, 1981, the require- 

ment was removed for all stu- 
dents who have already had 
four years of one language or 
three years of one and two years 
of another language in high 
school. Students who were en- 
rolled in a lower level language 
course that semester to fulfill 
their requirement even though 
their background was adequate 
were allowed to withdraw from 
their courses without being giv- 
en an F, as is usually the case 
with late withdrawals. W's will 

appear on these students' tran- 
scripts, and no penalty will be 
incurred for late withdrawal. 

Many people feel that the 
change was m.ade because of a 
cut in the budget, thinking that 
the fewer sections of a class 
taught, the less it will cost, 
while others are just plain 
greatful for a welcome change 
that has been a long time com- 




Believe it not, there is life be- 
yond UMass, and its been quite 
interesting watching all tnose 
people out there : . . Don Zim- 
mer, one of the winningest 
managers in Red Sox History, 
came out on the losing end of 
contract negotiations last Octo- 
ber. Although Zimmer's career 
with Boston lasted over two 
years, he never managed to 
please the fans, the press, and 
obviously, not the management 
. . . One name most "UMies" 
do recognize is that of Gary 

Trudeau. Trudeau is both the 
brains and the artist behind the 
cartoon "Doonsbury", which 
appeared in the Massachusetts 
Daily Collegian every day. Tru- 
deau has won a Pulitzer Prize 
for this controversial "Doons- 
bury" strip, yet in the past year, 
many publishers have refused 
to run the cartoon . . . designs 
for a radiation screen over the 
Campus Center and for an open 
air Plaza in front of the Student 
Union won first and second 
prizes in the Spring 1980 Envi- 
ronmental Design Competi- 
tion. The Radiation Screen de- 
sign was done by Glen Ruga, 
and the Plaza design was done 
by Patrick Condon . . . there 
was a lot of interest in a small, 
furry personality this past year. 
As you may have guessed. 

"Garfield", a United Feature 
Syndicated comic strip by Jim 
Davis was accused or being a 
real person. Apparantly, some 
people think that cats aren't fat 
and ornery, and that they don't 
really eat lasagna. Well, how 
many furry humans do you 
know? . . . Britain's Prince 
Charles, heir to the British 
throne married Lady Diana 
Spencer this past summer . . . 
Connecticut lost one of its most 
dedicated governors in Febru- 
ary of 1981. Mrs. Ella Grasso, 
61, had been governor for seven 
years before surrendering to 
cancer . . . Another outstanding 
American figure, Walter Cron- 
kite, is but a memory now. 
After 19 years of anchoring the 
news, Cronkite retired this year 
. . . "And that's the way it was."

There are plenty of things for 
us UMass students to do, and 
we've been caught doing just 
about everything. From soaps 
to strikes, from water to Whit-

Somehow, we have managed 
to be ourselves, (that's when we 
could find ourselves!) We have 
found the places where we fit

There are more than a thou- 
sand professors and adminis- 
trators at this University, but 
throughout our stay here, we 
students only get to know a 
very small group of them. Of- 
ten students find their "profs" 
to be understanding and tne ad- 
ministration to be very helpful, 
but unfortunately, the students 
don't know very much about 
these men and women or their 
accomplishments . . . Vice 
Chancellor Beatty, whose resig- 
nation was effective as of July 
1st, 1981, was trained as an en- 
gineer, but served this universi- 
ty successfully as Associate Di- 
rector and Director of the Of- 
fice of Budgeting and Institu- 
tional Studies and then became 

Vice Chancellor for Adminis- 
tration and Finance. He has 
been responsible for their orga-

the improvements in Auxiliary 
Services including the Campus 
Center and Conference Series, 
development of the campus

years ago. 

Classes at UMASS were can-

HEALTH .... 

Heavy whiskey, beer and 
wine drinkers may run a great- 
er risk of mouth cancer than 
two-pack-a-day cigarette smok- 
ers, the American Cancer Soci- 
ety Journal reported last Spring 
. . . Four scientists in London 
have reported the development 
of an electronic computer that

doesn't it? 

A Study by a University of

cancer view and was reported in

The list of substances that

Subliminal sex has found the 
blue jean. From the time of the 
utilitarian jean of the turn-of- 
the-century-cowboy to the sen- 
sual body-hugging garment 
that today envelops the lower 
half of teen sex siren Brooke 
Shields, the blue jean has joined 
the television generation. In a 
two-year-old craze that only re- 
cently hit Massachusetts, tele- 
vision advertisers have done to 
the jean what they do to nearly 
everything they want to sell on 
the tube: They turned it sexy. 
This time it seems more blatant 
than ever . . . The legal drink- 
ing age in Massachusetts was 
raised from 18 to 20 years old in 
April, 1979. According to a ran- 
dom survey of 30 UMASS stu- 
dents, however, the law has 
done nothing to stop 18 and 19 
year-olds from drinking alco- 
hol! . . . The 30 respondents 
unanimously agreed there was 
widespread defiance of the law 
among 18 and 19 year-olds. 
There was some difference of 
opinion as to what the legal age 

should be. More than two- 
thirds of the students surveyed 
thought the age should be 18, 
while a little less than a third 
felt the age should be 19. One 
student said he agreed with the 
present age of 20 ... 

Should Marijuana be legal- 

Yes no uncertain 

90% 9% 1% 

Should the possession of 

small amounts of marijuana be 


yes no uncertain 

30% 70 0% 

The above results were ob- 
tained through a recent survey 
conducted by the Collegian. 
Thirty students were selected at 
random and asked their views 
on the legalization of marijua- 
na. Richard Evans, the counsel 
to the Massachusetts chapter of 
the National Organization for 
the Reform of Marijuana Laws 
says the term legal in the 
group's name indicated a con- 
trolled taxable, product. Evans 
said he wants to see marijuana 

distributed and regulated on a 
similar basis as alcohol. Legal- 
ization to him doesn't mean an 
unregulated market ... A 
study of doctors who run in 
marathons provides new evi- 
dence that moderated drinking 
may help prevent heart disease 
... In addition to whatever else 
it does to the human body, 
marijuana is known to have 
anti-glaucome properties. Bio-

The University of Massachu- 
setts Hunger Task Force has 
announced that total contribu- 
tions to OXFAM from the 
Spring Fast, held last April 16, 
amounted to $3,800 . . . The na- 
tions scheduled trunk and lo- 
cal-service airlines in 1980 post- 
ed the lowest number of fatal 
accidents and deaths in the 
modern aviation era, one crash 
that killed 13 persons at the end 
of 1980. 

The previous low for the era 
was 17 deaths in 1933 and the 
one fatal accident has not been 
matched since at least 1928, the 
Federal Aviation Administra- 
tion said . . . The census bureau 
completed its preliminary state- 

by-state head count pegging the 
national population as of last 
April 1, at 225,234,182, an in- 
crease of 21.4 million people 
over the 1970 census. 

The last state to be counted, 
because of a fire last October at 
a Brooklyn record-keeping fa- 
cility, was New York, whose 
population the bureau said was 
17,476,798. The figure indicated 
a drop of 4.2 percent in the 
state's population in the last 
decade . . . Nationwide, suicide 
is now the third leading cause 
of death among youngsters 
ages 15-19, ranking just behind 
accidents and homicides. In 
1977, the last year for which fig- 
ures are available, 1,871 teen- 

agers in that bracket killed 
themselves, a 20% increase in 
one year and a 200% increase 
since 1950 . . . Romance is not 
dead; it is just very, very expen-

ing the same period. 

Moonlight still comes cheap, 
but a dozen long-stemmed 
roses $5 in the 50's sets the

And if thats not bad enough, 
imagine $42.40 for one of those

of designer genes is slowly 
moving closer. Researchers are 
now extending their experi-

April of 1981 scientists at the 
University of California in Los

'9 to 5' wins overtime 

The story of the year in Hollywood is the disastrous 
decline in the quality of movies and (perhaps not un- 
related) the decline in moviegoing attendance. 

There is, however, another story, less publicized but 
more interesting. That is the success of "9 to 5". 

What accounts for "9 to 5s" popularity? Is it the 
slapstick? If it is, why isn't all slapstick successful? 
Why didn't everyone flock to "Coin' Ape?" 

Is it Jane Fonda, one of the big box-office names? 
But Fonda is so muted in the film you scarecely notice 
her. Lily Tomlin carries the picture. At best, Dolly 
Parton is an interesting sideshow. 

I have two theories, which may be the same one. It is 
that this is the closest thing to a pure "woman's pic- 
ture" as Hollywood has given us- and it's a woman's 
picture for everyone. 

Still, I think men can enjoy "9 to 5." What I re- 
sponded to was the deft ensemble playing of the prin- 
cipals. Instead of the one-dimensional sterotype fe- 
male standard to most Hollywood movies, we are giv- 
en, in "9 to 5," three distinct characters. Each is a facet 
of feminity. Each has a brain. She just chooses to use it 
in her own way. 

"9 to 5" has an interesting history as a movie. It was 
Alan Ladd, Jr's last project before quitting as head of 
20th Century-Fox to start his own company. 

If there's any discernible trend in current movies, 
it's a disposition toward sadism. The central image of 
the day is a helpless, frightened vulnerable girl being 
preyed upon by a psychopath. It's not exactly the kind 
of issue that "9 to 5" led us to anticipate-but it's all that 
remains of the hopes raised by '9 to 5's" original re-

''Ordinary People'': 


The drought is over. 

There is finally an American film, and a commercial 
one at that, which manages to present relationships in 
some degree of complexity, which, with only a few 
lapses, provides real, meaningful dialogue, which 
makes a thematic statement which draws outstanding 
performances where none might be expected, and 
which marks a fine directorial debut. 

Beyond these, what sets "Ordinary People" above, 
way above, other recent efforts is its overall realism. I 
had expected to be midly critical of yet another film 
that catalogued the tragedies that beset the beautiful 
people. Not that the upper middle classes and above 
don't feel their tragedies; it's just that there is so much 
that needs to be said, that Hollywood seems reluctant 
to say, about the middle and lower classes whose day 
to day life is often a tragedy in itself. 

But "Ordinary People" is primarily a film about 
caring and the lacking of this trait seems particularly 
pandemic among those upwardly mobile sorts who 
have surrounded themselves with material goods. 
There are, in the film, brief, scathing attacks on this 
phenomenon. An archetypal cocktail party, a jogging 
partner who huffs continuously about the stock mar- 
ket, and the petty dinner conversations and minor 
league escapist jet-setting that exist in the midst of 
personal crisis-are all presented with a sharp impres-

REO Speedwagon 

Watching REO Speedwagon 
is like wandering the yellow 
brick roads of an indoor shop- 
ping mall. Any indoor shop- 
ping mall. It's bright, clean, 
cheery. Above all, it's familiar. 
You know what you're going to 
find, and you know you're not 
going to get rained on "Dallas" 
became the highest rated show 
in the history of television as 
three out of every four sets in 
use last spring were tuned in to 
see who shot J.R. . . . Seventy- 
five-year-old Henry Fonda 
wanted to fly a kite. He was 
standing on the fringe of Bal- 
ston Beach one morning last 
fall, killing time between takes 
during the shooting of "Sum- 
mer Solstice," a 60-minute telt- 
play being produced by 
WCVB-TV (Channel 5). He ap- 
peared thin and stooped and 
tired. But as he walked slowly 

through the mulberry bushes 
looking like a seasoned beach- 
comber in his flannel shirt and 
straw hat, the man who has 
been an actor for more than half 
a century did not go to his 
dressing room. It is truely a 
"Golden Age" for Henry Fonda. 

They almost called them- 
selves The Vermont Dance 
Theater. Almost. But, then, in a 
portent of the whimsey to 
come, they settled on pilobolus, 
the name of a particularly active 
fungus one of them had studied 
in Biology class, and also the 
title of the first dance ever cre- 
ated by the jocular jocks from 
Dartmouth who have written 
one of the most peculiar chap- 
ters in American dance history. 

To their original formula- 
macho muscles, bodies clad in 
white unitards and acting like 
human flypaper, and electronic 
music-they added women, dra- 
ma, and tuneful scores. Along 
the way, they turned into an in- 
dustry which allowed the origi- 

nal crew to enjoy a perpetual 
adolescence-an income. J.T. 

The coffee shop was not the 
only area in the Campus Center 
last February filled with with 
bleary, tired-eyed people. 

By 8 a.m. there were 121 peo- 
ple in line from the doorway of 
Union Records Unlimited in 
the Student Union Building ex- 
tending down the hall, waiting 
to purchace tickets for the Feb. 
9th James Talor concert. 

David Kim, a junior polysci- 
/history major sat at the head 
of the line. "There are lots of 
doors open in this place," Kim 
said. He camped out in the Cape 
Cod lounge until 4a.m. when he 
was kicked out by a security 
guard, . . . 

"I don't feel too bad about 
that, (the wait)" Julie Maycock, 
a freshmen journalistic studies 
major said. 

"It's better than the Whit- 
more line," Bob Weatherwax, a 
biochemistry junior said. "It's 
faster and you get to sit down,". 


This year's bite-your-nails- 
artist has been Bob Seger, the 
normally durable Detroiter 
who pulled a shocker of his 
own by recently cancelling due 
, to flu But his show was well 
I worth the wait, and any hassles 
about the show were quickly 
forgiven . . . Contrary to a na- 
tional trend, most UMass stu- 

dents interviewed in a random 
survey did not watch "Dallas" 
to find out who shot J.R. Ewing 
. . . Even though George Carlin 
seems to be a comic whose style 
and rhythms derive from Lenny 
Bruce's intimate, "psyche on 
the sleeve" revelations are not 
for him. He dislikes that ap- 
proach to comedy because "I 

don't like to talk about my own 
subjective experience because it 
would be an intrusion into my 
private life" . . . James Bond is 
coming back,still with his 007 
liscenceto kill, but otherwise 
with a 1980's flavor. He will be 
a little more respectful to wom- 
en, consume fewer martinis and 
smoke low-tar cigarettes. 









Like millions of other pre-pubescent girls around the 
world, I spent years collecting many Beatle cards with bub- 
ble gum, listening to Beatle records over and over until they 
ran through my head, buying a plastic Beatles wallet, a 
Beatles notebook, reading teen magazines about their lives. 
My friends and I talked about John, Paul, George and Ringo 
day and night, all of us smitten with little-girl adoration. 
My parent's friends were bemused; they liked to ask me 
about the Beatles just to watch the young enthusiasm of my 

My mother complained about the noise, the unintelligibi- 
lity of the words of rock and roll. But soon, she started 
humming Beatles songs herself. 

She didn't like most rock and roll, but the Beatles were 
different, she admitted. She liked the music. She could iden- 
tify the songs and understand the words. "Is that the Bea- 
tles?" she would ask, hearing a song on the now-ever- 
tuned-in AM radio. Often, she was wrong; she tended to 
think any melodic, understandable "kids" song was a Bea- 
tles song, but the Beatles were a bridge from my generation 
to hers. 

Lovely, funny, soulful or serious- the Beatles' music was 
unlike the music of the more psychedelic Jefferson Airplane 
or the meaner, more antisocial Rolling Stones. It told my 
mother something, but not too much, about the revolution 
in culture and values that my peers and I were absorbing, if 
not creating. She didn't agree with the new values, but she 
wasn't frightened by the Beatles. 

Neither was I. Some kids, mostly those a little older than 
I, experimented with drugs and sex, violently opposed their 
parents, dropped out of college, were arrested in anti-war 
protests. But the real army of Beatles fans weren't the most 
radical kids. 

The mainstream Beatles fans needed desperately to be- 
lieve in public figures like Bobby Kennedy and Martin 
Luther King and John Lennon - to guide the new energy, the 
new generation through very frightening times. We were 
deeply effected by the violent death of one "Peace" hero 
after another. When acid rock stars Janis Joplin and Jimi 
Hendrix killed themselves with drugs, it didn't just horrify 
our parents. It frightened and alienated kids like me. 

The Beatles sang of absurdity and change, of the work- 
ing-class wasteland, the emptiness of materialism, the iro- 
ny, silliness, sadness and everlastingness of love. Their 
thoughtful, lyrical, sane rebellion was a home base in a 
kaleidoscope of revolution. 

Led by the nervy, sarcastic, but ultimately gentle John 
Lennon, the Beatles amused and led my generation. While 

the heroes fell, unstoppably, one by one, while the war in 
Vietnam seemed impossibly, shockingly persistant, their 
music kept coming, too, enticing us to dance ourselves tired 
or just to think, to sing along or just "Let It Be." 

We felt deserted when Lennon married Yoko Ono and the « 
Beatles split up. It wasn't wanting to be young again; the^ 
Beatles music had grown up, and so had we. But it was one 
of the only links between 1963 and 1970 that still meant 
anything. My friends and I would have traveled miles, spent 
outlandish sums, to hear the Beatles together again. We 
knew we would have been soothed, spoken to intelligently, 
brought together again in a world where it seemed nothings 
good lasted. 

But Lennon found, after troubled years in the early 1970sM 
that the family was the center he had looked for, and so his 
last album was a somewhat sentimental shrine to his own. If 
he's right, my generation will be OK without the Beatles, if 
it's true that all we need, or perhaps all we can depend on, is ,

Just when you think all the fun might have been 
wrenched from rock 'n' roll, Bruce Springsteen and his E 
Street band take the stage and deliver four hours of testimo- 
ny proving that rock is alive and well. 

Performing only days after the death of John Lennon - 
whose zeal for rock ranked with Springsteen's - the band of 
Asbury Park, N.J., opened last winter's show at the Provi- 
dence Civic Center with a torrid version of "Born to Run", 
brushing aside any suspicions that the concert might be 

Early in the show, Springsteen - in one of two references! 
to the fallen Beatle-mumbled "This is for you, Johnny," and 
launched into a stately version of "The Promised Land." 

Otherwise, the show was an exercise in high-powered 
rock 'n' roll. 

Springsteen is famed for playing marathon shows - a 
reputation that remains intact. 

In Providence, Springsteen - "The Boss" to his fans - 
ripped through some 30 songs, ranging from "For You" and 
"Rosalita" of the old days, to Cadillac Ranch", "Hungry 
Heart" and "I'm A Rocker", from his recent hit album "The 

On record, Springsteen can be exciting and moving, but 
his live performances are legend, and with good reason.

The unsolved murders of 
black children in Atlanta have 
shocked the nation and given 
rise to questions about why 
such killings happen, why chil- 
dren are the victims, and what 
parents can do to protect their 

A profile of the killer and the 
victims: Psychodynamic theor- 
ies predict that the Atlanta kill- 
er is a weak, passive person of a 
careful, methodical nature, a 
person with mixed needs for in- 
tamacy and aggression, for 
whom the excitement of abduc- 
tion and murder or sadomaso- 
chistic behavior is needed for 
him to feel sexual, said psychol- 
ogy Professor Bonnie Strick- 

She believes that, when the 
killer is found, he will be a "pa- 
thetic and tragic person" from a 
disrupted and disturbed family 
background, who may feel re- 
morse for his actions, and, at 
the same time, a perverse plea- 
sure in beating all those trying 
to find him. 

The victims were selected, 
she believes, because all were 
slight in build and may have 
appeared easy to overpower. 
Many of the children were 
"street waise" and may have 
been expected to be "savvy" in 
dealing with a dangerous situa- 
tion. It is likely, she said, that 
the murderer did not appear 
dangerous or that the children 
refused to believe that murder 

could happen to them. 

Professor Jon Simpson of so- 
ciology describes the Atlanta 
killings as representative of the 
violence most usual in our soci- 
ety. The wide news coverage 
that they have received makes 
them appear to be more repre- 
sentative than they are, he said. 
In fact, mass killings are very 
infrequent, rather like the occa- 
sional airplane disaster that 
concerns us because a large 
number of people are killed, 
while we ignore the even larger 
number killed in car accidents. 
Far more serious, because more 
common, is the domestic vio- 
lence usually described as child 
or wife abuse 

"I feel that the Atlanta situa- 
tion is hopeless in the sense of 
the feeling of frustration," he 
said. "There is little you can do 
to reduce the probability of vio- 
lence in society, given the na- 
ture and character of our soci- 
ety. We have a subculture of 
violence that is complicated by 
the complexities of human na- 
ture, and the inability of human 
beings to control their destinies 
in any rational way. There are 
so many possible catalysts to- 
ward violent response that con- 
trol of violence is a very diffi- 
cult task." 

The Atlanta Murders may 
make parents more protective 
of their children for a limited 
period, but the effects will be 
transistory, said Professor M. 

Lawrence Rawlings. Once the 
killer is caught, everyone will 
try to return to the status-quo. 

"A violent person can be any 
place, any time and there is lit- 
tle way to predict where vio- 
lence can happen. To be sud- 
denly concerned about a single 
episode doesn't make sense", he 
said. "You should be concerned 
all the time and start early 
teaching children where the 
risks are, without frightening 

Since the risk of violence to 
children is most common with- 
in the family, Rawlings would 
like to see this violence combat- 
ted by re-educating from their 
patterns of using voilence to re- 
lieve frustration or as a means 
of controlling children or 
spouses. Many people are vio- 
lent, he said, because they don't 
know their other options. 
Is The Media Giving The Kill- 
ings Too Much Publicity? 

"The hysteria would be much 
worse if the murders weren't 
covered," said Howard Ziff. 
"What social ills is the media 
accused of perpetrating by cov- 
ering it when a large number of 
children are killed? 

Critics of the media who 
claim that publicity about kill- 
ings encourages so-called copy- 
cat killers are speaking without 
evidence, he said. 

"They don't want to read bad 
stories? That's too bad. That's 
what I call the mentality of 
blame the messenger for the 
bad news. I can tell you that we 
have the evidence about what 
happens when you don't release 
information on stories of great 
social moment and concern. We 
know what happens in totali- 
tarian countries . . . Instead of 
having channels of communi- 
cation kept open by reasonably 
intelligent observers like the 
press, you have them darkened 
by rumor.

Will Massachusetts reach zero 
population growth in the 1980's? 

Some economists and social ob- 
servers in the state think we will, 
says George S. Odiorne, a professor 
in the School of Business Adminis- 
tration of the University of Massa- 
chusetts in Amherst. 

"The shortage of energy, the de- 
pletion of resources and environ- 
mental presures all have produced 
an interest in how we can prevent 
overpopulation," Odiorne said. "For 
special reasons having nothing to do 
with fertility or birth rates, Massa- 
chusetts may be approaching that 
zero growth rate." 

Recent figures from the U.S. Cen- 
sus Bureau reveal that the state 
gained only 223,000 population in 
the decade between 1970 and 1980, a 
net gain of 1.4 percent for the peri- 
od, Odiorne said. This computes to 
"a miniscule percentage yearly," he 
said, "and indicates a net outmigra- 
tion during the period." 

If this trend continues, it could 
have important economic conse- 
quences tor the state. For example, 
he said, the drop in population will 
affect growth in purchasing power, 
available labor supply, and the costs 
of education and government. 

Where do the people go? 

Many of them move across lines 
into Maine and New Hampshire. 
Older people on fixed incomes move 
because taxes are lower and so are 
living costs in other states. This can 
mean that the ample pensions of 
some retired people may be earned 
in Massachusetts and spent in an- 
other state. 

For young people, the local labor 
market may not offer much hope for 
good careers. Many college gradu- 
ates move to large southern cities of 
California in order to earn higher 
wages. This turns out to be a double 
drain on the Massachusetts econo- 
my, Odiorne said, since it costs tax- 
payers several hundred million dol- 
lars yearly to support state higher 
education and yet the skills, energy 
and knowledge of recent graduates 
are applied to developing the econo- 
mies of their new home states. 

The "outmigration" of native 
young people is somewhat offset by 
people moving in from other states. 

Odiorne said. The major corporate 
headquarters of high technology bu- 
sinesses such as Digital, Honeywell, 
Polaroid, Wang, Data General, 
Prime and similar firms attract peo- 
ple from outside the state. Also, 
some large national firms based in 
Chicago or Minneapolis have major 
operations in the Boston area and 
assign their workers to Boston as a 
step in their career progress. Some 
of these temporary Boston workers 
become permanent as they fall in 
love with the beauty of Massachu- 
setts and the attraction of its cities. 

"One of the economic challenges 
of the 1980s will be to make Massa- 
chusetts more attractive to young 
people, especially Massachusetts 
college graduates," Odiorne said. 
"This means jobs, but it also means 
opportunities to start new business 
firms. It may also call for some res- 
toration of traditional Yankee val- 
ues of frugality, discipline and hard 
work in the young. Unfortunately, 
those are the very qualities which 
today tend to send young people to 
Houston, Los Angeles and Phoe- 

In the 20-year period between 
1952 and 1972, Massachusetts exper- 
ienced a net decline in the number 
of acres of land in agricultural use of 
about 12,000 acres a year. Most of 
this land was lost to urban use or 
left to revert to natural forest. 

Today, though, the trend toward a 
decline in the number of acres used 
for farming in the state seems to 
have halted, said Professor John 
Foster of the University of Massa- 
chusetts/ Amherst Department of 
Food and Resource Economics. Ac- 
cording to a recent census, he said, it 
now appears that the number of 
acres of farmland in Massachusetts 
is modestly increasing. 

Why has the decline in farm acre- 
age ceased? 

"One speculation is that the cen- 
sus is wrong," Foster said. "The oth- 
er is that there is some substance to 
it, that the number of acres in agri- 
cultural use is increasing. This may 
be because of the back-to-the-land 
movement and the use of land for 
small, part-time operations." 

Since, at present, Massachusetts 
depends on sources outside of the 

state for 85 per cent of its food, 
local farmers can compete, the ma 
ket for local agriculture produces is 
endless, Foster said. But can they 
compete successfully with farmers 
in other parts of the nation? 

Massachusetts farmers will have 
an uphill climb to compete success- 
fully with farmers in California and 
the Midwest, says Professor Robert 
Christensen, also of the department. 
This is because Massachusetts 
farmland is very heavily taxed com- 
pared with farmland elsewhere 
(Massachusetts has the second or 
third highest tax rate per acre in the 
nation), farms here are small, and 
farmers are also at "the tail-end of 
the pipeline for fuels, fertilizers and 
agricultural chemicals, so all these 
tend to be more expensive," he said. 

One might think that recent in- 
creases in fuel costs might make 
transportation of food from Califor- 
nia and the Midwest so expensive 
that local farmers couldn't help but 
be more competitive in their prices. 
This just isn't so, though, Christen- 
sen said. Even if gas costs rose by as 
much as $1 a gallon, an average- 
sized truck can carry enough pro- 
duce from other farm areas to New 
England and the cost of its cargo of 
lettuce would rise only about 1.2 
cents a pound. That may not be 
enough of a price hike to make the 
heavily taxed Massachusetts farmer 
more competitive in the market- 

On the other hand, Foster said, 
consumers in New England are be- 
coming more supportive of locally 
grown products and may be willing 
to pay more to support local farm- 
ers. The Massachusetts Department 
of Agriculture has adoptecf the slo- 
gan "Massachusetts grown and 
fresher" to help encourage this sup- 
port. Even a little bit better market 
for local agricultural products could 
make a significant difference to 

"I see a lot of potential for fresh 
fruit and vegetable production in 
the state, although there are a lot of 
risks," Christensen said. "I think 
the fact that there is more interest in 
and support for agriculture in the 
state is a very positive thing for us 
to see." 






1980 was a year of decision. 

In 1980, just like every other 
year since 1789, the American 
public was asked to do its civic 
duty to excersize its "inalien- 
able right" to cast a ballot and 
elect a president. 

And in 1980, like in all those 
other years, there were plenty 
of choices of who to vote for. 
And yet, some say, there were 
no choices. 

In the early stages of the race, 
everyone wanted to run, to win 
their party's nomination and 
make the final stretch drive to- 
ward the White House. There 
were all the Republicans, each 
trying to climb over the other to 
emerge at the top of the heap 
and to get a crack at dethroning 
the Democratic incumbent: 
John Anderson, George Bush, 
John Connally, Howard Baker, 
and Ronald Reagan to name a 
few. And Jimmy Carter, who so 
effectively wooed the nation 
and defeated then-President 


Gerald Ford in 1976, was facing 
a challenge from within his 
own party to strip him of the 
presidency. Sen. Edward M. 
Kennedy, the elite, proper Bos- 
tonian, brother of a former 
president and of an almost- 
president, sought to overthrow 
the Carter regime and retire the 
incumbent after four somewhat 
stormy years. 

As to be expected, the field 
narrowed as the campaign pro- 
gressed. One by one, the Re- 
publicans fell by the wayside, 
leaving Anderson, Bush and 
Reagan as the only real, serious 
competitors. As for Carter and 
Kennedy, who often bitterly as- 
sailed each other in the Quests 
for glory, it was the President 
who held on to his power at the 
voting booth. 

And so November ap- 
proached with the voter as con- 
fused as ever. On one day, Rea- 
gan would have a solid lead in 
the Opinion Polls, but he 
would trail the next. The public, 
faced with a deteiorating econo- 
my, the Iranian Hostage situa- 
tion and the Soviet invasion of 
Afghanistan, couldn't decide 
what to do, since the candidates 
really hadn't told them how 
they felt about the issues. 

By election day. Carter and 
Reagan were nearly even in the 
opinion polls, with Anderson at 
about 5%. But, as it had been 
throughout the campaign, the 
undecided voters held a sub- 
stantial chunk in the polls and 
they, most analysts said would 
determine the outcome. 

Even before the polls closed 
on the west coast, the television 
networks proudly proclaimed 
that America had spoken and 
that Ronald Wilson Reagan, a 
former actor and Governor 
from California, would become 
the 40th president of the United 

States. At the age of 69, Reagan 
is the oldest man ever to as- 
sume the presidency, certainly 
quite an accomplishment for a 
man who once co-starred with 
"Bonzo" the chimp. 

On the home front, public 
officials declared the end of life 
as we know it with the voters 
passage of Proposition 2 Vz. The 
measure provided for drastic 
cuts in property and excise tax- 
es at officials opposed to the 
measure said, great expense of 
government service. 

Locally, Amherst voters re- 
turned incumbents Silvio 
Conte and James Collins to the 
House and State Legislature re- 
spectively. And Amherst also 
bucked the national and state- 
wide trend, vying for Carter 
over Reagan and even crushing 
Proposition 2 Vz. 

And so, as the cold winter 
winds whipped through Wash- 
ington D.C. on January 20, 
1981, Ronald Reagan was 
sworn in as president, George 
Bush as Vice-President. 



Key dates in Ronald Rea-

Should The U.S. Give Aid To El Salvador? 

It started last October when 
three American nuns were 
killed in El Salvador, and has 
been knawing away at our con- 
sciences ever since: should we 
leave El Salvador to its own- 

Here are some of the facts: 

-the U.S. has given El Salva- 
dor money, arms, and troops 
since 1976. 

-there are several U.S. com- 
panies in El Salvador, including 

B.F. Goodrich, Sears and Roe- 
buck, and Esso. 

-Israel, Cuba, Russia, and 
France are also giving El Salva- 
dor aid in different forms. 

-the government to pull the 
country together through its 
land reform policies. 

-the power no longer rests on 
fourteen families. 

-priests, nuns and journalists 
have been kidnapped, raped, or 
killed by terrorists since Octo- 


-The Gallup Poll reveals that 
one out of every ten people 
wants us there; nine do not. 

Without even thinking of re- 
minders of Viet Nam, escala- 
tions with Russia, of the deaths 
of american citizens over a war 
that's ended, these facts speak 
for themselves; what do they 
tell you? 


Jiang Qing Mao, Wang 
Hongwen, Zhang Chunqiao 
and Yao Wenyuan were 
brought up on trial in Novem- 
ber of 1980 for forming the per- 
secuting party and state leaders 
in China in an attempt to gain 
power for themselves, accord- 
ing to TIME magazine. 

This controversial political 
battle took place for about three 
weeks, with the entire world 
constantly wondering if Mao's 
widow was really guilty of in- 
structing the three persons 
mentioned above to discredit 
their enemies in the party who 
stood in the way of their plan to 
sieze power. The four apperent- 
ly arrested or executed some 
534,000 Chinese on Chairman 
Mao in 1971. 

To the amazement of the en- 
tire world, Jiang Qing Mao 
took the stand and acted as 
though she'd never even heard 
the word China before, much 
less commit treason against the 
country. The other three accom- 
plices, however admitted to the 
entire plot soon after, and the 
four were sentenced. 

The whole messy trial and 
the expose of Mao's widow left 
many American's asking; How 
could four people actually do 
something like this and get 
away with it for so long? In this 
case, four clearly was a gang, a 
devastating group of powerful 
people who had the potential to 
rip China apart. Thankfully, 
they failed. 





Saturn's rings are the year's 
best example of an old science 
principle: the more you find out 
the less you know. 

According to Professor Peter 
Schloerb, a planetary scientist at 
the University of Massachusett- 
s/ Amherst,: "Before Voyager we 
thought we understood this ring 
system very well, we thought 
there were perhaps a half-dozen 
of these flat rings and we gave 
them all names and thought we 
had a very good idea of what 
they looked like. After Voyager 
we have a better idea of what 
they look like but perhaps less of 
an understanding of how they 
came to be." 

In other words, the Voyager im- 
ages answered some questions 
but Voyager images answered 

some questions but raised many 
more, not only about Saturn and 
its rings but about the planetary 
system. According to Schloerb, 
"We have some ideas of why Sat- 
urn has rings. We think it has a 
lot to do with the satellites." Sat- 
urn has many moons, he ex- 
plained, and each has an influ- 
ence on the particles in the ring 
system. "We think their influ- 
ence is to confine the particles to 
this particular ring system." 

Beyond this kind of limited un- 
derstanding of the ring system, 
it's pretty hard to say right now 
why the rings are there and how 
they came to be, Schloerb said. 

But the rings offer astrono- 
mers a very good model for re- 
search on the solar system, he 
added. The rings are essentially a 
body of very small particles orbit- 
ing about a very large body and 
constantly running into each oth- 

A system like this is perhaps a 
very good laboratory on what the 
very early solar system might 

have been like, he said. "We 
know (or we think we know) that 
the planets formed out of a great 
gas cloud around the sun some 
4.6 billion years ago. During that 
time the first things that were 
made in the solar nebula were 
small objects. 

"And the small objects would 
run into each other and various 
dynamic phenomena would 
make larger objects. And the 
larger objects would run into 
each other and eventaully build 
up something as large as a plan- 
et," Schloerb explained. 

Planetary scientists will get an- 
other look at Saturn next year, 
when Voyager II will rendezvous 
with Saturn. Schloerb predicts 
that more new questions will re- 
sult. "The new questions and 
their answers, though they al- 
ways lead to more new ques- 
tions, always increase our under- 
standing," he said. 


Hopes for continued American 
exploration of space rose with as- 
tronauts John Young and Robert 
Crippen as space shuttle Colum- 
bia lifted into Earth orbit on April 
8, 1981. 

"It's the second big step into 
space," says QMass geologist 
Randolph W. Bromery of the 
shuttle program. Bromery, a sen- 
ior NASA advisor, was on hand 
for the early morning launch 
from Cape Canaveral. 

The shuttle program is a cru- 
cial step toward building a space 
observation platform — a perma- 
nent space laboratory — for use 
by industry and scientists alike. 

Following the four flights to 
test the shuttle vehicle and its 
environment NASA will launch a 
series of Spacelab missions to in- 
vestigate a range of subjects 
from the feasibility of gathering 
solar energy in space to determin- 
ing the role of gravity in plant 

Two other GMass/ Amherst 
professors also watched Colum- 
bia's progress closely. Astrono- 

mer Paul Goldsmith and electri- 
cal engineer K. Sigfrid Yngvesson 
developed one of 40 detailed Spa- 
celab experiment proposals. 
Their project, along with all but 
three others, is on the shelf right 
now, ready to be built if NASA 
gives the word. 

The ClMass project is a milli- 
meter-wave radio telescope. It 
would look at astronomical ob- 
jects in the radio frequency por- 
tion of the electromagnetic spec- 
trum rather than the visible light 
portion that conventional, optical 
telescopes see. A state-of-the-art 
instrument, it is based on exper- 
tise developed in building the 
Five College Radio Astronomy 
Observatory located at the Quab- 
bin Reservoir. 

The experiment OMass re- 
searchers would like to perform 
is dubbed the SINTOX Project, 
short for Spacelab Interstellar 
Oxygen Project. It would detect 
and study for the first time oxy- 
gen molecules in the gaseous 
clouds between stars. Such ob- 
servation is impossible from 

Earth because radiation froni <.nf. 
atmospheric oxygen blocks the 
faint radio signals from many 
light years out into the Milky 

That information would tell sci- 
entists a great deal about how 
stars are born and how they die 
— the seemingly endless recy- 
cling of stellar matter. It also 
might give some clues to the ori- 
gins of life and our prospects of 
having distant neighbors else- 
where in the galaxy. 

Bromery emphasizes the dual 
role of the shuttle missions. "One 
is the new discoveries we can 
make in space," he said, "satisfy- 
ing man's quest for knowledge. 
But the major thing the shuttlle 
will do is ensure that a larger por- 
tion of what we do out there will 
be beneficial for mankind." 

Ultimately, the shuttle is sup- 
posed to make space accessible 
to all as shuttle flights settle 
down to the NASA/s equivalent 
of boring milk runs. 



Mt. St. Helens — Fire — Proposition 2^2 

It makes some people shud- 
der to think about it, while oth- 
ers cari't wait for the next erup- 
tion so that they can sell more 
ash. It's the ominous Mt. St, 
Helens that I am referring to, 
the massive mountain of mol- 
ton rock and ash that has be- 
come one of the largest tourist 
attractions in the west, as well 
as one of the biggest threats to 
farming, industry and life itself 
in the state of Washington. 

The volcano which had been 
silent for over 60 years erupted 
on May 18th, 1981, and has had 
four major eruptions and sever- 
al minor eruptions since. It has 
destroyed miles of land, and 
has taken the lives of over 31 
people, and yet, people still 
flock to Washington to "get a 
closer look". 

Massachusetts voters fol- 
lowed the national trend of tax 
reforms and overwhelmingly 
approved the controversial Pro- 
position ZVa in November of 
this year. 

The tax reform is called Pro- 
position lyh because it will lim- 
it property taxes in the state to 
iyi% of the market value. 
Though this seems undeniably 
beneficial, the controversy lies 
in the fact that local revenues 
will be lessened by $1.3 billion. 

The passing of Proposition 
V-h comes two years after the 
passing of Proposition 13 in 
California. It is obvious that 
Massachusetts need a form of 
tax reform. Masachusetts' prop- 
erty tax runs 70% over the na- 
tional average and the state leg- 
islature has considered 130 re- 
form bills since 1935. The ma- 

jor difference between Califor- 
nia and Massachusetts is the 
fact that Massachusetts has no 
surplus to soften the blow. 

The true effects of Proposi- 
tion iVz will not be known for 
years to come. The basic con- 
troversy of tax reform lies in 
whether spending power be- 
longs in the hands of the gov- 
ernment or of the citizens. In 
the short run it is indesputable 
that government services and 
jobs will be cut in order to give 
more buying power to the tax- 
payer. Only time will tell if this 
trade will spur the economy 
enough to justify the immea- 
surable cuts in government ser- 

Experts have stated that Pro- 
position 2V2 is a basically sound 
proposal. Though it is a well- 
intentioned bill, many experts 
warn that it is seriousely flawed 
and that it was passed without 
enough understanding on the 
voters part. It is however, un- 
likely that it will be amended or 
changed because of its large 
passing margin. 

The passing of Proposition 
ZVa brought various but far- 
reaching reactions. Proponents 
of the bill were at first elated at 
receiving relief from their bur- 
densome tax load. Later, many 
proponents began to worry that 
the "scare stories" they'd been 
hearing might indeed come 
true. Opponents' reactions bor- 
dered on chaotic. Government 
employees began to fear for 
their jobs. Government depart- 
ments looked to justify their ex- 
istance and looked for ways to 
cut their budgets. Citizens 
across the state began to con- 

sider the end of governmi 
services and the effects on the 
public school system. flj 

The hardest hit areas of state 
will be the older and the poorer 
cities and towns. Ai 

These commuities tend to be 
the ones with the highest prop- 
erty taxes and the greatest need 
for public services. 

The hardest hit department 
will be the newest ones and the 
ones that take a large slice of 
the budget. Among these are 
the police, public works, and 
school departments. 

Many experts agree that the 
first place to make fiscal im- 
provements is the Massachu- 
setts Bay Transit Authority. 
This years MBTA budget ran 
out long before the end of the 
fiscal year. The legislature re- 
fused additional funds until 
management was reformed. 
When Governor King autho- 
rized emergency funds without 
management reform, he was 
criticized as overstepping his 

The pros and cons of Propo- 
sition IVt. can best be under- 
stood through examination of 
an example. Proposition 2}h 
would cut automobile excise tax 
from 6.6% to 2.5%. It can be ar- 
gued that this will mean a sav- 
ings of $126 million to state 
motorists and will spur in- 
creased car sales and therfore 
new jobs and tax revenue. Yet it 
can also be argued that it will 
mean a revenue loss of $162 
million to towns and cities and 
therefore a major loss of

In late January, 1981, as most 
UMass students were enjoying 
the final weeks of intersession, 
the majority of United States 
citizens breathed a collective 
sigh of releif as 52 Americans, 
who had been held hostage in 
Iran for 444 days, were finally 
released from captivity. 

As the nation watched, a dou- 
ble drama unfolded on the tele- 
vision screens. As Ronald Rea- 
gan prepared to take the oath of 
office of the presidency, the 
world waited for word from 
Iran, where the hostages were 
supposedly being readied for 
release. In the days earlier, ru- 
mors of their impending release 
spread across the globe, but one 
snag after another delayed their 

Finally, at 12:33 p.m. January 
20, just moments after Ronald 
Reagan became the 41st presi- 
dent of the United States, the 
plane carrying the hostages left 
the runway in Terhan, Iran, 
carrying the 52 to freedom. As 
the word went out, millions of 
yellow ribbons were readied, 
the symbol adopted to welcome 
the hostages' return. 

That day in history marked 
the end of a 444 day struggle, 
begun on November 4, 1979, 
when the U.S. embassy in the 
middle east country was over- 
run by militant students, angry 
at the U.S. for allowing the ail- 
ing Shah Reza Pahlevi into the 
country for medical treatment. 
The militants seized the embas- 
sy and threatened not to free 
the captives until the U.S. re- 
turned the Shah to face trial in 

Efforts to free the hostages 
by diplomatic means failed and 
the U.S. was forced to wait until 
Iran settled its internal strife 
before the country could decide 
how to handle the situation. On 
November 20, 1979, 16 days 
after the embassy was seized, 
eight blacks and five women 
were released by the Iranians in 
a deal negotiated with the aid of 
the Palestinian Liberation Or- 

ganization. One black and two 
women were not released and 
remained in Iran until the end 
of the crisis. 

As the months dragged on, 
little progress was accom- 
plished and the hostages' fam- 
ilies as well as much of the 
country, agonized over their 
fate. Glimpes of the hostages 
were occasionally seen, but 
these films provided little in- 
formation of their condition. 
Several missions to Iran by 
members of the clergy and in- 
ternational diplomats were well 
and receiving fair treatment. 
Much of the country still had 
doubts, however. 

In late April, 1980, the world 
was shocked when eight U.S. 
marines were killed when an ef- 
fort to rescue the hostages 
failed. In the flaming wreck of 
two helicopters in the Iranian 
desert, the mission failed and 
served as a major embarrass- 
ment to the United States. The 
pain of the incident was felt the 
following day, when the Iran- 
ians released photographs of 
the charred bodies of the ser- 
vicemen in the desert sand. 
Needless to say, the failed at- 
tempt also hampered diplomat- 
ic efforts to gain the release of 
the hostages. 

The following July, another 
milestone was reached when 
Richard Queen, one of the cap- 
tives held at the embassy, was 
released by the Iranians be- 
cause he was suffering from an 
illness, later discovered to be 
multiple sclerosis. Queen re- 
turned home for treatment of 
the disease and went into seclu- 
sion at his parents' home in 
Maine, offering little insight 
into what was actually happen- 
ing in Iran. 

Towards the end of the year, 
after Reagan defeated President 
Jimmy Carter, negotiations be- 
gan to move forward. Ir-an stat- 
ed its demands — the release of 
its assets frozen by Carter when 
the embassy was seized — and 
the U.S., through Algerian di- 

plomats, negotiated the terms. 
Finally, it seemed that Iranians, 
along with the Algerian inter- 
mediaries and U.S. Deputy Sec- 
retary of State Warren Christo- 
pher, had reached a basic agree- 
ment. About $12 billion in fro- 
zen Iranian assets would be re- J I 
leased and deposited in Europe- 
an banks as the hostages were 
released from Iran. 

As the U.S. prepared to inau- 
gurate a new president, the de- 
tails of the plan were being 
worked out. And, finally, as the 
inauguration drew closer, the 
pact seemed ready to be signed. 
Last minute kinks held up the 
process until the inauguration 
was nearly over. 

At 1:50 p.m., the word finally 
came that the plane carrying 
the hostages had cleared Iran- 
ian airspace and the entire na- 
tion breathed a collective sigh 
of relief. Across the country, 
people watched as the hostages 
landed in Algeria, transferred 
to American jets, and were 
flown to West Germany where 
they were moved to a U.S. hos- 
pital and were greeted by then 
former President Carter. 

In the following days, the 
American public, through the 
eyes of television cameras, 
watched the liberated hostages 
return to the U.S. and become 
instant heroes. First at West 
Point in New York, where they 
were reunited with their fam- 
ilies, and then later at a White 
House ceremony and subse- 
quent ceremonies at home 
towns across the country, the 
former hostages became celeb- 
rities and heroes. 

And we still haven't heard 
the end of it all. Major books 
and movies about the crisis are 
almost certain to appear. And 
history books for generations 
will retell the story again and 
again. For most people, howev- 
er, the ordeal is one they would 
probably rather forget.

An earthquake struck Italy 
on November 23rd of this year 
leaving thousands dead and 
hundreds of thousands home- 
less in what could prove to be 
the worst natural disaster of the 
decade. The initial quake 
ranged from 6.5 to 6.8 on the 
Richter Scale and was followed 
by numerous tremors. The 
earthquake was the strongest in 
70 years and shook an area 
from Sicily to Venice. 

Though dense fog hindered 
early rescue attempts, officials 
set a death toll at over 200. As 
tremors continued to rock Italy 
and further the devastation, the 
official toll rose to 2915 uniden- 
tified dead, another 1574 miss- 
ing, and 7304 injured. 

Officials stated that some 
265,000 people were now home- 
less. Initially residents escaped 
into the streets to avoid the fall- 
ing debris. In the larger cities. 

emergency camps were set up 
in open fields. In the smaller 
towns, where help was slower 
to arrive, families moved into 
abandoned buildings, schools, 
private apartment buildings 
and cargo drums. This despar- 
ate squatting brought comflict 
between officials and citizens. 
An attempt to move the hardest 
hit towns to seaside resorts and 
house them in requisitioned ho- 
tels was termed a failure be- 
cause few of the homeless 
would move from their home- 

Hospitals, already crowded 
and hectic in an attempt to deal 
with their own damages, were 
innundated with multitudes of 
injured. Physicians cancelled a 
planned strike and were ur- 
gently called on duty. Supplies 
were slow to move through the 
devastated area and another ur- 
gent call went out for help in 

that area. Though clinics had 
been set up following the initial 
quake, the ensuing tremors 
caused the evacuation of many. 
A glimpse of hope was given 
to Italy by the various forms of 
aid that rolled in following the 
earthquake. From within Italy, 
Red Cross, military and public 
forces all attempted to help in 
any way possible. Pope John 
Paul II toured and spoke in an 
effort to comfort the grief- 
stricken survivors. Monetary 
relief poured in from foreign 
countries. The League of Red 
Cross Socieites in Genva asked 
for cash and goods in an effort 
to help. The European Com- 
mon N4arket granted emergen- 
cy aid of $2 million. The U.S. 
Senate Foreign Relations Com- 
mittee approved $50 million in

What started in September as 
mere squirmishes along the 
Iran-Iraqi border developed 
into a major war which contin- 
ues to threaten the West's oil 
supply and world peace. 

The initial conflicts arose 
early in September and were 
confined to small battles along 
the 700 mile Iran-Iraqi border 
and to a propaganda battle. The 
United States found itself oddly 
attacked by both countries in 
this war of propaganda. Iran 
tied the US to Iraqi's aggression 
in an effort to spread the Iran- 
ian hatred for America to Iraq. 
Iraq blamed Iran's actions on 
the "US, international Zionism, 
the Sadat regime and all signa- 
taries of the Camp David ac- 

Later in September the con- 
flict moved beyond the propa- 
ganda stage and was recognized 
as a full scale war. Initial battles 
involved gunboats, rockets and 

artillaery along a waterway at 
the tip of the Persian Gulf. Both 
sides claimed heavy damages 
against the other. Iraq took an 
aggressive role and attacked 6 
Iranian air installations and 
followed with a strike on Iran's 
oil centers. 

Iraq continually played the 
aggressive role and struck 
against Iranian oil field. Iran's 
tough ground forces brought 
many stalemates at different 
times. Iran occaisionally took 
the aggresive role and attacked 
a Nuclear Reactor in Iraq. The 
massive propaganda efforts of 
both sides continued and con- 
fused actual details of damages 
and fatalities. 

Militarily, Iraq is far superior 
to Iran though its population is 
only one-third that of Iran. 
Iraqi forces are recognized as 
being the second strongest in 
the area. On the other hand, 
Iranian forces are known to be 

physically worn down and low 
in morale. 

As of this writing, the situa- 
tion is still highly unpredict- 
able. Numerous ceasefires and 
truces have been offered and 
then broken. Strong Iraqi 
movements into Iran have been 
successfully defended against. 
The momentum has swung 
from one side to the other many 
times and often appears to be at 
a stalemate. 

The propaganda battle con- 
tinues and both countries have 
stated that they are prepared for 
a long conflict. Iraq plans to 
fight until their demands are 
accepted and Iran will fight un- 
til its border is restored and 
Iraq ceases to be aggressive. In 
short, the war looks to rage on 
indefinitely and continue to 
threaten oil supplies and world

The completion of your course of studies at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst is an 
event of great importance to you, your families, 
and your teachers. You have worked hard for this 
achievement and the University is proud of you. 

You have taken advantage of a school which, in 
the past twenty years, has grown into one of the 
finest state universities in the nation. For many, 
this opportunity to receive a quality higher educa- 
tion may not have been otherwise available to you 
in a period of ever rising tuition rates. 

You have obtained an education which com- 
bines the offering of liberal studies with the oppor- 
tunity for professional training, and, 1 would like to 
assure you, liberal and professional education are 
not antithetical. 

In our highly technological and organizational 
society, they should be complementary, with 
each informing the other. The student in the basic 
disciplines is not liberally educated for the world 
of today unless he or she possesses an under- 
standing of the role of technology, its benefits, its 
costs, and the mode of thought of those who 
employ it. Conversely, students in professional 
fields can hardly function well if they do not have 
an understanding of the human and cultural mi- 
lieu in which they will practice, be they engineers, 
physicians, or accountants. 

Your education here at the Amherst campus 
has provided you with an experience which will 
have value now and in the future. Regardless of 
your major interest, your trained intelligence now 
gives you the opportunity to provide leadership 
and make a contribution to the society in which 
you live. 

The mission of the Amherst campus has been, 
and remains, to provide a quality, university-level 
education on a residential campus. The University 
has provided that outstanding education at a rea- 
sonable price, a price which provides all citizens 
of the Commonwealth the opportunity to obtain 
the training they will need to succeed in a com- 
plex society. In the future, this dual mission of 
high-quality education and low cost will be more 
important than ever, and 1 ask you to support the 
University in the future as it attempts to carry out 
that mission. 

You have worked hard, and you will continue to 
face difficult situations as you continue your edu- 
cation or start your career. 1 congratulate you on 
your achievements and wish you well in your 
future activities. 






Born in Vienna, Austria, Chancellor Henry 
Koffler has led a distinguished academic career. 
He orginally received his B.S. in Agricultural 
Chemistry from the University of Arizona in 1943. 
From there, he went on to obtain his M.S. in 
Bacteriology and his Ph.D. in Microbiology and 
Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin. 
After spending some time at the Oak Ridge Insti- 
tute for Nuclear Studies, the Chancellor did post- 
doctoral work in Molecular Biology at the Western 
Reserve School of Medicine. He finally received 
his D.Sc.h.c. from Purdue University in 1977. Doc- 
tor Koffler has held the position of Chancellor of 
the Amherst campus since 1979. 

As chief executive officer of the campus, Chan- 
cellor Koffler has ultimate responsibility for all 
aspects of the Amherst campus. He is responsible 
for carrying out all policies and procedures estab- 
lished by the Board of Trustees and President 
Knapp. He is also entrusted with carrying out long 
range academic and fiscal plans and personnel 
policies; coordinating campus operations and poli- 
cies, including budget development and alloca- 
tion; reviewing academic and fiscal programs; and 
acting as liason with campus governing units, the 
President's office and other external agencies. His 
responsibility is to ensure that the University func- 
tions as a complete academic enterprise. 

As Chancellor, Doctor Koffler faces many diffi- 
cult situations. One of the most upsetting prob- 
lems on campus, according to Koffler, is the lack 
of civility on the campus. "Students often confuse 
license with freedom, resulting in an indiscrimi- 
nate lack of concern for the feelings of other stu- 

The Chancellor does not feel that the University 
suffers from an in-state identity crisis. He believes 
that there exists a large amount of support for the 
University from residents of the state. Yet Koffler 
readily admits that UMass has been the victim of 
adverse media representation which he terms 
"out of context representation of the University". 

Koffler feels that the national climate at present 
is one toward great conservatism. Although un- 
derstandably unhappy about the financial aid cut- 
backs, he believes that because the nation had. 
been living beyond its means for so long, the 
current administration's hardline stance on spend- 
ing was inevitable. 

Last May, Koffler assumed a leading role in 
University planning by distributing, "Planning for 
the 1980's", a document guiding the faculty, staff 
and administration through a round of structured 
discussions about the future. The terms of the 
dialogue were clear and compelling: given alterna- 
tive future levels of spending, each unit had to put 

forward alternative plans to adjust to the levels 
while maintaining the unit's firm purposes. This 
discourse has commenced in the departments; its 
products will be refined at the colleges and 
schools, and be consolidated at the campus level. 
At a later date the campus plan will be integrated 
into the University-wide plan and ultimately is 
expected to contribute to the state-wide master 
plan to be developed by the Board of Regents. 

Koffler wants to make the Amherst campus 
foremost in research and education. To do this 
will require concentration on more refined goals in 
target areas. Doctor Koffler's long range plan for 
the University includes increasing non-state and 
private and scholarship funding, building deeper 
friendships with alumni and industry, and devel- 
oping a sophisticated system of community input 
into the University's decision making prosess.

George Beatty, Jr. 

George Beatty, Vice Chancellor for Administra- 
tion and Finance, is responsible for the manage- 
ment of the following divisions: Administrative 
Services, Auxiliary Services, Facilities Planning, 
Financial Affairs, Grants and Contracts, Human 
Resources, and Physical Plant. In addition, the 
Vice Chancellor is responsible for developing and 
implementing policies, planning efficient use of 
resources, and assuring compliance with applica- 
ble regulations, in May of 1981, Beatty resigned 
from his post in order to pursue and outside busi- 
ness venture. Beatty leaves the University with 
fond memories. "I will especially remember the 
large number of conscientious, dedicated students 
who gained much from the Gniversity. Also, 1 will 
never forget my fond personal associations with 
both the Chancellors." 

When asked which aspects of his job he has 
most enjoyed, Beatty thoughtfully answered, "1 
enjoyed working and interacting with the various 
student groups, creating a cohesive organizational 
structure for administration and finance, and in- 

corporating a high level of professionalism into 
the administrative services." Beatty has also en- 
joyed taking part in the landscaping of the area for 
the pleasure of the students and employees as 
well as the improvement of the GMass transit 

Beatty is concerned over the financial situation 
facing the Gniversity. "We are facing a difficult 
period financially with the national trend being 
one toward greater conservatism. More people 
will now be questioning the value of higher edu- 
caction, especially the lower income students who 
face the most severe financial aid cutbacks." 

Vice Chancellor Beatty gives the following ad- 
vice to 1981 graduates: "As you are graduating, 
write down your goals, then formulate a plan to 
help you achieve them. Keep your attention fixed 
on the goals themselves, not on the effort needed 
to attain them. With this formula I feel that every- 
one can be a success." Added Beatty, "1 wish you 
success in all your future endeavors."

Dennis L. Madson 

Dennis Madson arrived at GMass in August of 
1978 to become the Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs. Madson had previously spent 17 years in 
public higher education, 1 1 of which were spent in 
the Student Affairs Department at Colorado State 
University followed by 6 years in the Student Af- 
fairs Department at Ohio State University. As the 
chief student affairs officer for the campus, the 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs is responsible 
for the overall supervision of departments provid- 
ing support services for students. 

An average day for the Vice Chancellor would 
involve "a tremendous number of meetings, four 
or five a day", according to Madson. He also takes 
time out of his hectic schedule to visit privately 
with both students and staff to discuss any num- 
ber of concerns. "There is an incredible variety of 
issues involved in this job", says Madson, "1 deal 
with issues such as hazardous waste, peer coun- 
seling, residence hall problems, and police mat- 
ters. 1 work with people ranging from custodians 
to staff psychiatrists." 

Turning Spring Concert into a successful event 
has given Madson the most satisfaction this year. 
What made this event "successful"? "Basically, 
the fact that there were far less behavioral prob- 
lems this year as compared to last," cites Madson. 
Another accomplishment was a reorganization of 
the entire student affairs system into a far more 
efficient one. 

Because of a limited budget, Madson has had to 
set certain priorities for student affairs at the Uni- 
versity. He believes that the Student Affairs office 
must limit some programs in an effort to maintain 
the quality of existing programs. Articulating the 
needs of students effectively is also a major goal 
of the office. 

Because of the tight job market, Madson ad- 
vises graduates to "keep your options open. De- 
velop transferable human relations skills. They 
can be just as important as technical skills. Don't 
let too many opportunities pass by without giving 
some a chance." 

-Sandi Knowlton 





Dr. Loren Baritz, former Director of the New 
York Institute for tine Humanities, arrived at the 
University of Massachusetts during the summer 
of 1980. He replaces Jeremiah Allen, now Dean of 
the School of Fine Arts and Humanities, as chief 
academic officer of the campus; responsible for 
the entire range of campus academic programs. 
Specifically, his duties include: general academic 
development of the Amherst campus and stan- 
dards of excellence in instructional and scholarly 
programs; implementation of presidential and 
Trustee policies on academic matters; review and 
evaluation of college, school and departmental 
academic plans and budgets, appointments, pro- 
motions, and tenure recommendations; proposals 
for new academic programs; and suggestions and 
plans to increase the usefulness of the University 
in outreach activites and innovative service pro- 

In his role as Provost, Baritz plans to upgrade 
various academic programs which he feels need 
improvement. In this way, the University will be 
able to continue providing the high level of quality 
education students expect. 

Baritz sees the University as an institution pro- 
viding for the needs of both faculty and students. 
He feels that the cause of low morale on campus 
is due to a simple lack of information. "If people 

were better informed of the accomplishments of 
the University, said Baritz, "they would realize the 
high level of quality education that the University 
provides." Baritz suggests the publication of a 
newsletter stressing both faculty and student ac- 
complishments. "Press should not simply be limit- 
ed to the proposed newsletter, either," stated Bar- 
itz. "Closer ties with the Collegian and other area 
magazines and newspapers are essential." 

According to Provost Baritz, the cost of rising 
tuition will have the greatest impact on students 
entering the University this Fall. "The class of 
1980 was the largest in the history of the Universi- 
ty, evidence that the financial pinch had not quite 
hit home yet. Due to this year's severe cutbacks 
on financial aid and other forms of financial assis- 
tance, the 1981 freshmen class will definitely be 
the most effected to date." 

Even with the University tangled in its financial 
woes, Baritz remains confident that it will pull 
through the handle this financial crisis in the best 
way it can.

Have a problem? Don't know who to turn to? 
Your best bet would be the Dean of Students 
Office. There you'll find professional staff mem- 
bers who are on hand to provide assistance and 
counseling for a variety of Gniversity-related or 
personal problems. Dean William Field, the Uni- 
versity's first and only Dean of Students, says that 
his office is designed to be one of the most easily 
accessible offices in Whitmore. Located atop the 
ramp leading into Whitmore, the office has a con- 
stant flow of students armed with questions rang- 
ing from "How do I go about withdrawing from the 
Gniversity?" to "Where can 1 cash my check?" 
This constant student contact is what Dean Field 
enjoys most about his job. 

"There is not such thing as a 'typical day' in his 
office," laughs Dean Field, "Each day depends on 
the students who walk in here. We do try to antici- 
pate student problems and then meet them head 
on." One example of the office anticipating prob- 
lems has been the setting up of the Information 
Date Bank (IDB) and the Taped Information Phone 
Service (TIPS), "The idea actually came from a 
student working in the office. He complained that 
he always seemed to be answering the same ques- 
tions over and over again. We took it from there 
and now students have answers just a phone call 

Dean Field has seen the University grow from a 
small agricultural college in 1951 into a sprawling 
Gniversity. He has thoroughly enjoyed seeing stu- 
dents go through the Gniversity and move on into 
sometimes distinguished careers. Being part of a 
relatively small administrative team which has 
helped the Gniversity expand into a cultural cen- 
ter for Western Massachusetts is a source of per- 
sonal accomplishments for him. 

"Certain inevitable changes are now in store for 
the Gniversity. Due to the current administration's 
stance on financial aid, there will invariably be a 
basic change in the quality of classes as well as a 
shift upwards in the income of next years fresh- 
men class. 1 would like to see a partial bill pay- 
ment plan installed in response to the difficulty 
many students and parents are having in paying 
for the semester in one lump sum. A partial bill 
payment plan would allow for two or three sepa- 
rate payments to be made during the course of a 
semester," said Dean Field. 

In response to criticism about the impersonality 
of GMass, Dean Field feels that students are gen- 
erally prepared for the atmosphere at GMass be- 
fore they arrive. "Students usually know other 
family members or friends who are able to tell 
them about the 'GMass Experience'. Then there is 
always orientation (a program Dean Field originat- 
ed) whereby each student gets a feel for the Gni- 


versify prior to the start of their first semester." 
Dean Field went on to say, "1 feel that anonymity 
builds skills. Generally, the right people come to 
GMass in the first place. These are the people who 
can develop a sense of self and who get involved 
with some aspect of campus activity." Dean Field 
does admit to a communications problem, howev- 
er. The sheer size of the student body prohibits 
students from receiving all of the information that 
they should. 

As of Spring, 1981, Dean Field has reinstated 
the Dean's List, whereby students receiving a 3.5 
cum or better are recognized for their effort in the 
Collegian and local, hometown newspapers. "We 
used to have a Dean's List for years. Then, during 
the early 70's, the Gniversity moved away from it. 
Recently, students began asking about it again, 
and the administration felt the time was right for 
bringing it out again." 

In the years ahead. Dean Field would like to see 
a more responsive system for student needs be 
developed. He would also like to see an abolish- 
ment of the language requirement, stating that 
students forced to take a course will neither enjoy 
it or learn anything from it. Should these things 
eventually happen, you can be sure that Dean 
Field had some part in them.

Dean Frederick Byron 

According to it's Dean, the School of Natural 
Sciences and Mathematics is one of the strongest 
areas at the Gniversity. "We enjoy the reputation 
of being a young and growing school," remarked 
Dean Frederick Byron. "In addition to having our 
programs ranked high nationally, our Polymer Sci- 
ence and Radio Astronomy departments are 
among the best in the world!" 

"Our programs enjoy immense popularity and 
are always in heavy demand," stated Dean Byron. 
"This ever-increasing demand faces us with cer- 
tain problems. A major issue is the need for expan- 
sion, particularly in the areas of Computer and 
Information Science (COINS) and Applied Math- 
ematics and Statistics. We simply do not have an 
appropriate number of faculty needed to teach the 
number of students signing up for these courses. 
This shortage of faculty and teaching assistants 
makes it increasingly difficult to maintain the high 
quality programs we now offer. Quite bluntly, we 
are drowning in our teaching obligations!" 

The biggest threat facing the School of Natural 
Sciences and Mathematics is budget cuts. "The 
effects on this school would be devastating!" de- 
clared Dean Byron. "For instance, 5 of our T.A. 
budget could be slashed. Should this occur, our 
enrollment would have to be limited. Anywhere 
between 1000 to 2000 applicants could be turned 
away. In addition, we would not be able to offer 
anywhere near the number of courses which we 
now do." 

Aside from issues of budget cuts and demand 
overload. Dean Byron is extremely enthusiastic 
about the career opportunities facing his gradu- 
ates. "1 wish I were them!" he remarked. "This is a 
remarkable period in the sciences. Many facinat- 
ing areas are opening up, all of them offering 
excellent growth potential." Dean Byron conclud- 
ed by saying, "1 would like to wish each and every 
one of our graduates much deserved success."

Dean Thomas Wilkinson 

Thomas Wilkinson, Dean of the School of So- 
cial and Behavioral Sciences, first arrived at the 
University in 1953 as a doctoral student in Soci- 
ology. He taught Sociology at GMass for 20 years 
before accepting the post of Acting Dean. Three 
years later he was appointed permanent Dean. 

Wilkinson feels that his role is multi-faceted. He 
most enjoys being among fellow friends and col- 
leagues and assisting them with their research. 
Because of this, he finds it most difficult to have 
to limit research funding due to the severe budget 

Wilkinson does not feel that the recent trend 
towards the hiring of business and engineering 
majors has kept students away from his school. 
Instead, he believes that the school has been large- 
ly uneffected by the trend. "Rather than a de- 

crease in enrollment, there has been a rise in the 
school's enrollment from 1977 through 1981. 1 
feel that this increase is due to a realization by 
students that a narrow educational training can 
limit the scope of their skills," says Wilkinson. "If 
a student possessing a limited educational back- 
ground enters the market when there is little or no 
demand for their skills, the student is out of luck. 
With a broader, liberal arts background, the stu- 
dent is provided with a certain degree of flexibil- 
ity, making it easier to find a job." 

Dean Wilkinson advises graduates of his school 
to use their University experience to discover 
what area they excel in. With this knowledge they 
should seek out a career which they will continual- 
ly find a source of enjoyment and fulfillment.

Dean James Kring 

"Of all my years in higher education, the past 
four years have been the most enjoyable." So 
stated Dr. James Kring, acting Dean of the Col- 
lege of Food and Natural Resources. His college is 
one of the largest divisions within the University, 
encompassing 12 academic departments. Dean 
Kring is also director of the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural Station as well as the Cooperative Exten- 
sion Service. 

"The College of Food and Natural Resources 
has an excellent reputation. We have the 9th lar- 
gest agricultural program in the entire country. 
Nationally, our Associates program is ranked 13th 
and the Doctoral program is ranked 19th. The 
CIniversity actually grew from the once named 
Massachusetts Agricultural College. Pointing to 
the Norman Rockwell original hanging in his of- 
fice, Kring said the artist presented it as a gift to 
the agricultural school during one of the com- 
mencements. The drawing shows an agricultural 

agent testing a farmer's soil in typical Rockwell 

Dean Kring's enthusiasm was evident as he 
proudly spoke of research being conducted within 
the college. He stated that the Fisheries Depart- 
ment arid the Entomology Department have 
gained national attention for their work on salmon 
and black flies. "With all this marvelous research, 
it is a shame that most Massachusetts residents 
complain that their tax monies are being spent 
carelessly. Most people never hear about the posi- 
tive aspects of the campus. Everyone seems to 
associate GMass with co-ed bathrooms and the 
water crisis," complained Kring. 

"The one discouraging aspect of my stay here 
has been the physical condition of this College. 
The buildings are in bad shape. Half of them were 
built prior to 1917, with 25% of those constructed 
before 1910. We desperately need a new Plant 
Science building! I have continually stressed to 
the administration that buildings built before 1910 
cannot be renovated in 1981 and expected to last 
through the year 2000." 

As Dean Kring leaves the University, he advises 
graduates of his school to "Strive to work to the 
utmost of your ability, then make up your mind to 
do it for the rest of your life. People will then 
recognize you for what you are, a dedicated pro- 
fessional. Success will then surely follow." 
-Maureen Mc Namara

Dean William A. Darity 

The School of Health Sciences is comprised of 
three divisions: Nursing,' Public Health and Com- 
munication Disorders. Dean William A. Darity has 
served as Dean of the school since its inception in 
1973. Prior to his being named Dean, he held 
positions in the Department of Public Health here 
at the University of Massachusetts and in many 
countries with the World Health Organization. 

Dean Darity believes that his school is not un- 
like others in the country. "Both the Nursing and 
Public Health programs can hold their own with 
any other in the state and the Communication 
Disorders department is currently ranked first in 
the state," according to Dean Daity. 

When asked if the Division of Nursing would be 
better situated on the UMass Worcester campus. 
Dean Darity replied an emphatic, "No." "The 
UMass Medical Center, although an excellent clini- 
cal facility, has no academic facility available." 
Continued Dean Darity, "As it stands now, the 
Division of Nursing has a very close working rela- 
tionship with the Worcester site, but Nursing 
needs a broader base which only the Amherst 

campus can provide." 

Dean Darity has some definite ideas on what he 
would like to see happen within the School of 
Health Sciences over the course of the next five 
years. He would most like to see the graduate 
Nursing program developed. He would also like 
more research in all units, more external support 
for the school, a general tightening up of the un- 
dergraduate programs in order to ensure the main- 
atinence of quality backgrounds, and the develop- 
ment of a more collaborative program of research 
between the separate colleges and schools within 
the University. In Dean Darity's opinion, "A lot 
more can be done if we break down many of the 
existing academic barriers. When this is accom- 
plished, we will be able to develop some good, 
strong programs." 

Dean Darity advises graduates of his school to 
initially gain more work experience and then con- 
sider graduate school. He feels that graduate 
school imparts students with greater research and 
academic skills, making them invaluable mem- 
bers of their professions. Dean Darity reminds his, 
graduates that their graduation from the Universi- 
ty is just the beginning of

Dean David C. Bischoff 

r. ■ 


"The University of Massaciiusetts has been 
very good to me," says Dean David Bischoff of 
the School of Physical Education. Bischoff served 
as Assistant Dean from 1963, Provost for the Pro- 
fessional School from 1970 through 1977, and as 
Dean from 1972. 

"When 1 first arrived here 24 years ago, there 
used to be agricultural shows in the Cage. The 
University was still very much Mass. Aggy with 
horses and cows being groomed outside the Cage 
every day. I've seen many changes here and have 
done my best to keep the school of Physical Edu- 
cation ahead of them." One of the major changes 
has been in the emphasis of the school. Says Dean 
Bischoff, "The emphasis has been dropped from 
the teaching area now that there are only 200 
students accepted into the department each year. 
The expanding areas are now exercise science, 
sports management, and sports study and the- 

"As far as nationwide ranking of our school, the 
graduate department has been ranked 7th in the 

country. Ut course, this quality filters down to the 
undergraduate level as well," states Bischoff. 

Along with every other school and college, the 
School of Physical Education will be hard hit by 
the budget cuts. "The proposed budget cuts will 
especially hurt the quality of our equipment. The 
recent problem with the deterioration of the tennis 
courts are perfect examples of what we will be 
facing in the future. Along with the physical mani- 
festations are the moral deteriorations. The bud- 
get cuts will greatly effect faculty recruiting effort 
as well". 

Plans for the future involve strengthening the 
current athletic programs as opposed to develop- 
ing new ones. Explains Dean Bischoff, "What we 
need is not different programs, but the fruitation 
of existing ones." 

Dean Bischoff advises graduates of the Physical 
Education School to keep an eye out for different 
careers. "Don't let interests color your direction, 
career choices should be careful ones." He goes 
on to say, "Graduating with a Physical Education 
degree in 1981 will be difficult, especially if your 
interests are in teaching. Teaching will be difficult 
due to Proposition ZVi and a recently passed Bill 
making physical education classes at the junior 
and senior levels of high school optional. But hang 
in there. There is always room for someone good."

■„asmm ^ean Harry Allan 

In the past eight years, Dean Harry Allan has 
■ witnessed, firsthand, the dramatic increase in the 
number of students seeking a business education. 
The first five of those years were spent as a facul- 
ty member of SBA teaching business law, with the 
last three years spent as Dean. 

"There are currently 800 business schools in 
the country of which only 200 are accredited," 
states Allan. "We are one of those. We are also 
one of a small number of schools offering an 
accredited masters program. In addition, CIMass 
offers the only public doctoral program in busi- 

Allan believes that the business school should 
be enlarged somewhat, but not to include all of the 
current demand. Instead, there should be some 
type of compromise between the numbers apply- 
ing and the amount accepted. There has been a 
definite increase in the number of women and 
minorities enrolled in the business program. 
"Women constitute about 50% now, while ten 
years ago the figures were only 5-6%. At present, 

minorities comprise about 8% of the total busi- 
ness program. This is better than it used to be, but 
still not good enough." 

"Our goal for the next five years is targeted at 
becoming one of the top ten public business 
schools in the country," says Allan. "This will 
involve strengthening what already exists. We will 
have to do more off-campus education. We will 
also be working at improving relations with many 
alumni and various public agencies." 

Dean Allan gives the following advice to 1981 
SBA graduates: "Pay less attention to the salary 
of the first job as to its potential to help you 
develop professionally. Keep in mind that your 
career will last at least 40 years. Never stop learn- 
ing and develop to reach as high as you can."

Dean Mario D. Fantini 



Mario D. Fantini 

Professor and Dean, School of Education 

University of Massachusetts/ Amherst 

Dean Mario D. Fantini has thoroughly enjoyed 
serving as Dean of the School of Education during 
the past four and one-half years. "Maintaining the 
School of Education's national and international 
reputation of excellence and innovation has pre- 
sented a great professional challenge for me," 
cites Dean Fantini. Prior to his arrival at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts, Dean Fantini served as 
Dean of the Faculty of Education at the State 
University of New York, at New Paltz, as well as 
Program Officer for the Ford Foundation. 

"Students are drawn to this School of Educa- 
tion for a variety of reasons and from diverse 
backgrounds," says Dean Fantini. "Many of our 
faculty are nationally-known pacesetters in their 
respective fields. We also have the reputation for 

dealing with contemproary issues in education 
and for planning alternative futures. This school is 
also very flexible, encouraging tailored coricentra- 
tions and self-directed learning." The undergrad- 
uate program has stabilized while the graduate 
program has expanded and continues to expand 
especially through outreach efforts. "This is the 
only state School of Education in Massachusetts 
offering a doctoral program in education. Our gra- 
duate outreach programs extend to both Worces- 
ter and Boston in order that working professionals 
may continue thejr education." 

Dean Fantini would like to see more emphasis 
in the future on such issues as outreach, student 
access, international education, collaboration with 
the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 
medical education, with the Harbor Campus on 
inservice, and with business and industry on hu- 
man resource development. He feels that the 
School of Education is taking a broader view of its 
role encompassing a concept of learning in the 
total community rather than just to schools and 

Dean Fantini advises his graduates to remem- 
ber that education extends beyond a job, serving 
to increase the students' control over their own 
lives. "This is a difficult period for teachers," says 
Fantini, "Yet there is always room for good teach- 
ers. Moreover, learning can also be applied to 
other areas such as parenting, international educa- 
tion, human services and business and industry." 
Dean Fantini applauds those dedicated students 
who have remained in education despite the cur- 
rent obstacles awaiting them after graduation.

Dean Russel C. Jones 

Dr. Russel Jones is currently enjoying his fifth 
year as Dean of the Engineering School. Prior to 
his arrival at UMass, Jones studied at the Carne- 
gie-Mellon Institute where he received his PhD in 
Civil Engineering. He then spent eight years teach- 
ing at MIT followed by another six as Department 
Head at Ohio University. 

Jones is justifiably proud of his school. "This 
Engineering School is ranked second only to MIT 
in New England. Also, our Manufacturing Engi- 
neering and Polymer Science Engineering depart- 
ments are ranked first in the entire country!" 
Jones continued, "Being of such high quality, the 
engineering curriculum is a rigorous one. Half the 
students entering the program either leave or 
switch to another program by senior year. But the 
rewards are there for those who stick out the full 
four years." Cites Jones, " Engineers can expect 
to graduate this year with an average of 8-10 job 
offers each. Even in slow years graduates can 
count on at least 2 offers." Jones feels that the 
phenomenal growth of the high-tech industry will 

guarantee career opportunities for years to come. 

Since engineering is a field where knowledge is 
continuously being updated, keeping abreast of 
new technology is a major problem facing profes- 
sional engineers. Because of this, the School of 
Engineering offers a unique program known as 
the Videotape Instructional Program. In this pro- 
gram, companies can request taped University 
lectures complete with notes, homework, and ex- 
ams in order that their engineers may continue 
their education without having to travel to the 
Amherst campus. 

Jones listed "more interaction with industry 
and more off-campus education" as two changes 
he would like to see in the near future. "Also, a 
larger school of education for Electrical and Com- 
puter Engineering is needed since student enroll- 
ment in these two disciplines has doubled over the 
last five years." 

Dean Jones lists two orders of advice for gradu- 
ates of his school: "First, get more education. 
Start on your Masters degree, whether it be full or 
part time. By attaining it you will have a keen 
advantage on the competition. Secondly, always 
be professional. Use your degree toward some 
purpose which will benefit society. Engineering 
should be a Mearned art in the spirit of public
