Moving into a dorm room or apartment signifies the 

beginning of a new semester for the estimated 20,000 

students who attend UMass. Getting to know a

The University, as well as Amherst center, has 
undergone some improvements this year. "A 
Class Act' was a program designed by the senior 
class to restore the 12th floor of the 
Tower Library. Approximately 200 seniors 
volunteered. Also, the Blue Wall was changed into 
a coffee shop, serving ice cream and gourmet 
coffee. Steve's and D'Angelos were new additions 
to Amherst center. Barts more than doubled the 
size of its ice cream parlor and Louis Food 
Market moved to a more modern building on 
University Drive.

The Big Push/5 

A goal of the administration is to make UMass 

one of the best schools in the Northeast. 

Recently there has been a so - called "big 

push" to increase the reputation of the 

University. The average SAT scores of incoming 

freshmen are on the rise and general 

requirements for acceptance into the University 

have become more selective, thus placing 

UMass among some of the most competitive 

schools in the state.

Being active in extra-curricular 
activities allows students to meet 
new people and to develop outside 
interests. Organizations are always 
looking for new members to take 
part in activities and help improve 
programs. For example, different 
organizations sponsored numerous 
rallies and sit-ins to protect student 
rights and to increase student input 
in administrative decisions.

It was a banner year for UMass sports. Six teams participated in 
championship games and several placed amongst the top 20 teams in 
the nation. The victories by the various teams has increased school 
spirit and created a greater sense of dedication between coaches and 
players. An increase in scholarship money gives coaches the opportunity 
to be more selective when recruiting new players.

The sheer size of the campus and the diversity 

of the student population are what distinguish 

the University of Massachusetts from other 

schools in the state. The Southwest residential 

area is reportedly one of the most densely 

populated areas in the U.S. and, in terms of 

size, the University has the sixth largest 

residence hall system in the country. The 

University has one of the largest exchange 

programs, attracting students from such places 

as Puerto Rico, Africa and Sweden.

This year, the University of IVIassachusetts at 
Amherst took one giant step toward excellence. 
No more will UMass be referred to as 
"Zoo Mass." Instead, the administration, the 
faculty, and the student body have taken it upon 
themselves to better the quality of a UMass 
education. New, more constructive ideas and 
policies have been implemented that have pushed 
the University of Massachusetts into a new era, 
an era of recognition.

Our Hopes for the Future 

At this time, I join your family and 
friends in offering my congratulations 
and my best wishes for your future. 
Your degree from this University will 
mean many things during the coming 
years, but only you will accurately ap- 
preciate all the achievements it sym- 

This year the Index editors have 
asked me to write about plans for the 
future of the University, our hopes for 
making it the best public university in 
the Northeast. Those plans are easier 
to describe than to achieve. And we 
cannot achieve our goal without a 
broad base of support from students 
and faculty, professional staff and ad- 
ministrators, legislators and alumni. 

Achieving pre-eminence in the 
Northeast will require many things we 
have yet to acquire — more library 
books, new lab equipment, computers, 
and other tools for research and learn- 
ing. With some help and some pa- 
tience, I am convinced that we will see 
these improvements in the coming 

An important point to add, however, 
is that excellent tools alone do not 
make academic excellence. People do 
that. And, in this respect, we are very 
fortunate. Our faculty and librarians, 
our teaching assistants and profession- 
al staff have already established this 
University as a good place to learn. Our 
challenge to become the best public 
university in the region will depend 
largely upon their will and determina- 
tion. They are the people who will re- 
cruit new students and new faculty. Fu- 
ture excellence will depend, in large 
measure, upon their success at these 

Finally, I would add that whatever ex- 
cellence we achieve shall not be pur- 
chased at the expense of equal oppor- 
tunity. As a public institution dedicated 
to cultural diversity and equal opportu- 
nity, our academic excellence shall not 
be purchased at the expense of pro- 
grams which promote these principles' 
Excellence, as we shall define it, will be 
built upon them.

President David C. Knapp 

Chancellor Duffey, Provost O'Brien 
and I have emphasized in recent 
months the University's preeminence 
in public higher education in New Eng- 
land and our intention to strive for ex- 
cellence in the Northeast. One of the 
difficulties with such goals is the prob- 
lem of precise definition. It is custom- 
ary to fall back on criteria such as the 
level of research activity, numbers of 
faculty awards, capital projects, library 
holdings, reputational studies, etc. All 
of these have some merit in helping an 
institution determine how successful it 
is in meeting its objectives and how it 
stands relative to its peers. By many of 
these standards, the University is now 
ranked among the foremost institu- 
tions in the nation. 

The University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst is also fortunate in possessing 
a vital and dedicated faculty whose 
achievements have brought the institu- 
tion increasing recognition as a center 
of learning and scholarship. 

In addition, their efforts are aug- 
mented by technical and professional 
staffs who have contributed materially 
to a campus environment conducive to 

personal growth and development. 

And yet, when all is said and done, 
perhaps the ultimate test of the Uni- 
versity's success can only be mea- 
sured by the abilities and talents of our 
graduates. The greatest part of our at- 
tention and resources are, and will con- 
tinue to be, directed towards our un- 
dergraduate programs. The time and 
effort devoted to the restructuring of 
General Education is indicative of the 
University's concern for and commit- 
ment to the undergraduate curriculum. 

Ultimately, our efforts must be 
judged by the impact of the institution 
on our graduates. These are outcomes 
that cannot simply be measured 
against annual income, but must take 
into account the total individual. Your 
experience here will have conse- 
quences that may only be evident in 
years to come. We trust that in what- 
ever endeavors you pursue, the efforts 
of the University will serve you well. 

We take great pride in our graduates 
because you embody all our efforts 
and carry forward our aspirations. 
Congratulations to the members of the 
Class of 86.

Associate Vice-Chancellor for 
Academic Affairs 
Dr. Fern Johnson 

From Maturation 

Academic Success 

"The University is now in a period of 
academic maturation", according to 
Associate Vice-Chancellor for Aca- 
demic Affairs Dr. Fern Johnson. Dr. 
Johnson explained that during the past 
few years not much activity has taken 
place in academics primarily by design. 

In the early 1970's through 1980, 
both faculty and student bodies grew 
substantially. Membership in the gra- 
duate programs had also increased. 
Due to this increase, many new 
courses and degree programs were ad- 
ded each year. 

Beginning in 1980, the University be- 
gan to make the quality of its programs 
better than the quantity of them. De- 
partments offered more specialized 
courses for majors and non majors. At 
the Undergraduate level, the entomol- 
ogy department developed a special- 
ized degree program known as inte- 
grated pest management. At the Gra- 
duate level, degree programs are being 
J developed for Phd's in neuroscience 
sand music. 

This period of maturation allows the 
; University time to build its reputation 
i academically. This is the number one 
priority of the administration", said Dr. 
Johnson. She stated "It is a realistic 
goal for the University to become the 
best public institution in the North- 
east." Some of the academic pro- 
grams are already the best in the 

One example is the Polymer Science 
and Engineering departments. These 

two areas are top rated among univer- 
sities across the United States. The 
University also has a strong Honors 
Program and a strong Bachelors De- 
gree with Individual Concentration pro- 
gram. The CCINS department has been 
steadily advancing in developing new 
types of programs for its students. 

The professional schools have also 
steadily improved. The Exercise Sci- 
ence, Sport Management, and HRTA 
programs all have more than a suffi- 
cient number of students enrolled. In 
fact, the University of Massachusetts 
has more student enrolled in these 
programs than most universities. 

During this period of maturation, 
there has also been general level 
changes. The biggest change is the re- 
vision of the general education require- 
ments. New students will have a differ- 
ent set of requirements from those stu- 
dents who are already enrolled at the 
University. These requirements involve 
taking courses in Historical Studies, 
Anaylitical Reasoning, and Social/Cul- 
tural Diversity. It also requires students 
to take one science with a lab. Dr. 
Johnson believes that this new educa- 
tion requirement is a "good foundation 
for all students." 

Another general change is the use of 
computers at the University. Comput- 
ers are being used all over the campus. 
They are found in dorms and in some 
classrooms. Many disciplines have in- 
tegrated computers into their pro- 
grams like: Landscape Architecture, 

School of Management, and the Hu- 
manities and Fine Arts. It is the goal of 
the University to have all academic 
buildings and dorms set up into a com- 
puter network system. 

Finally, a change that will happen 
over the next several years is the stu- 
dent body. The number of eighteen- 
year-olds in the United States is de- 
creasing. This will mean less students 
will be applying from high school and 
more from the middle-age class. Also 
more transfer students will be attend- 
ing the University because of the qual- 
ity of its programs and its low cost. 

After its period of maturation, the 
University of Massachusetts at Am- 
herst will become the top university in 
the Northeast.

A period of change can best describe 
tlie curriculum at tine University of 
Massachusetts. When William Field be- 
came Dean of Students, the University 
had a common core curriculum. To- 
day, the University has one of the most 
diverse curriculums in the Northeast. 

When Dean Field came to the Univer- 
sity, all students took a specified core 
group of courses regardless of major. 
"For example," Dean Field explained, 
"all students took Botany I because it 
was a required course." The College of 
Arts and Sciences required its students 
to take a science. A typical freshman 
course load consisted of Zoology, Bot- 
any, Chemistry, and English. This left a 
very limited selection of electives for 
students to choose. This allowed stu- 
dents to choose their major later on in 
their career. 

The School of Engineering also set 
up their own standards, in addition to 
the University requirements. As a re- 
sult, what courses a student took as a 
freshman or sophomore depended on 
where the student was registered or 
what major the student had. 

Once schools and colleges started 
setting up their own standards, differ- 
eniation took place. Courses were di- 
vided for majors and non-majors. The 
University had courses such as Chem- 
istry for Majors and Chemistry for Non- 

Today, the University offers one of 
the most diversified curriculums in the 
Northeast. Students can choose from 
over 4000 courses and choose from 
over 80 different majors. When asked 
what changes Dean Field forsees, he 
responded, "to have more courses 
specific to majors." Dean Field also 
sees a new core requirement on social, 
racial, and ethnic cultures for the Uni- 

Whatever the outcome, the Universi- 
ty of Massachusetts will one day be- 
come the finest academic institution in 
the Northeast. 

« « # « » 

A period of change can also describe 
student clubs and organizations. When 
Dr. Dennis Madson became Vice Chan- 
cellor for Student Affairs, the club sys- 

tem was already highly organized. 
Eight years ago, there were approxi- 
mately 300 clubs and organizations. 
Today, that figure has grown to over 

Student run businesses also changed 
over the past few years. The busin- 
esses are training their management 
better and are more organized than in 
the past. Also in 1980, most busin- 
esses, such as the Hatch, were brought 
into the University Accounting System, 
allowing for better organization and al- 
lowing the University to conduct audit- 

Residential life has become more 
specialized. Colloquia were added. The 
social life of residents became more 
diverse and new discipline policies 
made for better operation of the resi- 
dential halls. The University, through 
its many residential changes, made the 
residential areas one integrated func- 
tional operation. 

The diversity of student affairs at the 
University will help to strengthen it as 
UMass strives for excellence. 





The Big Push Towards Excellence 

Starting next semester, new stu- 
dents will no longer be able to select 
;:oursesfrom the traditional C, D, and E 
pore requirements. They will be re- 
jquired to take courses from a new set 
bf guidelines known as General Educa- 

Students will have to take courses 
Tom areas called Analytical Reasoning, 
Physical and Biological World, and So- 
;ial World. Students must take two 
:ourses from Analytical Reasoning, six 
rom Social World and three from 
Physical and Biological World. In addi- 
:ion, students may be required to take 
a science course with a lab. 

Freshman, sophomores, and juniors 
already enrolled at the University are 
subject only to the traditional core re- 
quirements. However, due to the im- 
plementation of the General Education 
requirements, it will be tougher for stu- 
dents to enroll in certain classes. Histo- 
ry courses will be one of the more diffi- 
cult courses to enroll in. New students 
will be required to take a historical 
course while others will be trying to 
fulfill a 'C core in History. 

General Education will improve the 
quality of education, but it will take 
time and patience.

In Recognition of Excellence 

The Distinguished Teachers Award is 
presented annually by the Graduate 
Student Senate to three faculty mem- 
bers and to three teaching assistants in 
recognition of good teaching. 

Each fall, the G.S.S. accepts nomina- 
tions from students for those teachers 
who they feel have outstanding teach- 
ing ability. 

The nominees are evaluated in eight 
categories on a scale of 1 to 10, one 
being the poorest and ten the best. The 
categories include: communication of 
subject matter clearly and effectively; 
clearly defined course objectives; moti- 
vation of students to do their best; 
command of subject matter; fair and 
open-minded grading procedures; sen- 
sitivity to background and interests of 
students; and general excellence in 

The candidates are evaluated twice, 
in the fall and spring semesters. The 
committee is composed of students, 
past winners of the award, and repre- 
sentatives from the Student Govern- 
ment Association and Graduate Stu- 
dent Senate. Letters are also solicited 
campus-wise from any student wishing 
to write a recommendation for the 
candidate. Winners of the 1986 Distin- 
guished Teachers Award are: 
John A. Chandler- Chemistry 
Judith E. Goodenough- Zoology

Professors Do Homework 

You are in a large lecture hall with 
300 other students waiting for the pro- 
fessor to begin his lecture. 

How does a professor prepare to 
teach a large lecture? Is it the same 
/way students prepare to take exams? 
IHow does it differ when a professor 
prepares for a small class? 

Each Professor prepares in his or her 
"own unique way. Some study last 
tyear's lecture notes, while others up- 
date their notes. Alan Kamil, a Psychol- 
ogy professor studies all the material 
"to be sure that I personally thorough- 
ly understand the material — not just 
the relevant papers and books, but the 
underlying logic and assumptions." 

Professor F.J. Francis teaches his 

jFood Science and Nutrition classes in a 

different way. "I have all my material 

3n 35 mm slides ... I believe that it is 

an efficient way of teaching." 

Professors tend to teach small 
classes differently than large ones. One 
professor has more discussion in small- 
er classes. He makes them more infor- 
mal and can make project assign- 
ments. R.G. Brown, a professor of Nu- 
trition, plans his smaller classes for in- 
ciass discussion. "Emphasis is on 
depth and stimulating discussion and 

Professor Alan Kamil prepares more 
visual aids for his larger classes. He 
uses overheads, slides, etc. "In small 
courses", Professor Kamil stated, "I 
try to think up questions for prompting 
discussion, and may plan on using 
some techniques not easily carried out 
in large groups." 

Professor's attitudes towards teach- 
ing have changed very little since they 
began teaching. Dr. Dario Politella, a 
Journalistic Studies professor, ex- 

plained "I started out in teaching be- 
cause I felt I have something to offer 
those who might follow in my profes- 
sional footsteps I felt that I had 

such a fine practical and academic 
education that I ought to give some of 
it back . . . which is what I've been do- 
ing with great satisfaction, ever since." 
Professors put many hours into a 50 
minute lecture. They work hard so that 
we can receive a quality education.

A Growing Success 

Photo by Karen Zarrow 

In 1947, when Massachusetts State 
College became the University of Mas- 
sachusetts, the College of Engineering 
was formed. In the almost forty years 
since that time, the College of Engi- 
neering has prospered and grown, be- 
coming one of the most respected col- 
leges in the University. Currently over 
10% of the 25,000 students at UMass 
are enrolled in this college, working 
with approximately 120 full-time facul- 
The College of Engineering consists 
of five departments, offering six under- 
graduate degrees. These degrees are: 
Chemical Engineering; Civil Engineer- 
ing; Industrial Engineering; Mechanical 
Engineering; Electrical Engineering; 
and Computer Systems Engineering, 

the last two majors are offered by the 
Department of Electrical and Comput- 
er Systems Engineering. 

New students apply to UMass as en- 
gineering majors, but need not decide 
upon a concentration until the end of 
their freshman year. Every freshman is 
required to take approximately the 
same program of courses, although 
some humanities or social science 
electives are required. The average en- 
gineering major takes 17 credit-hours 
per semester with this number of cred- 
its, it is not uncommon for engineering 
students to take as long as five years to 
complete their degree requirements. 
This is because a B.S. degree in Engi- 
neering requires 135 credits, 15 more 
than the University demands. This ex-

tended period of study is encouraged, 
so that students may more fully master 
their areas of concentration. 

Every major in the College of Engi- 
neering requires a sound basis in math- 
ematics, physical sciences, and engi- 
neering sciences. In order to achieve 
this, many hours must be spent in the 
laboratory and the library by every stu- 
dent. In recent years, computer liter- 
acy has also become very important 
for engineering majors. 

Within the College of Engineering 
there are student-run societies for ev- 
ery major, as well as for women engi- 
neers; these provide a forum for social 
and academic interaction between stu- 

dents. The Joint Student Engineering 
Societies hold an information Night for 
freshman engineers every February. At 
this affair faculty members discuss the 
various majors, and both upperclass- 
men and faculty answer questions 
about the programs. 

Also included within the college is the 
Office of Minority Affairs, which is at- 
tached to the Dean's Office. This office 
conducts high school recruitment pro- 
grams, and provides financial and tuto- 
rial aid to minority students within the

The Biggest and the Best 

Fifty-seven of the University's 94 un- 
dergraduate major programs are found 
under the umbrella of the College of 
Arts and Sciences, making it the lar- 
gest college at the University. Arts and 
Science students have had majors as 
diverse as Near Eastern Studies, Medi- 
cal Technology, and Social Thought 
and Political Economy. UMass was one 
of the first universities to offer a major 
in Women's Studies, which is also 
found in the College of Arts and Sci- 

The College is divided into-three Fac- 
ulties with common curricula. Depart- 
ments such as Afro-American and In- 
terpreter's Studies, as well as lan- 

guages, history and art, are included in 
the Humanities and Fine Arts Faculty. 
The Natural Sciences and Mathematics

Programs of study at the College of 
Arts and Sciences lead to four possible 
degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of 
Science, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and 
Bachelor of Music. 

Outside of their major field, all stu- 
dents in the College are required to 
take "core" courses in the areas of the 
i Humanities, the Arts, Science and 
i Mathematics for general education. 
Graduation requirements include the 
freshman and junior year Writing Pro- 

grams and basic proficiency in a for- 
eign language. 

Starting in the 1986-1987 academic 
year, new students will be taking a dif- 
ferent set of "core" requirements than 
the rest of the College. These students 
will have to take courses from areas 
called Analytical Reasoning, Physical 
and Biological World, and Social World. 
Students will have to take two courses 
from Analytical Reasoning, six from So- 
cial World, and three from Physical and 
Biological World. Also, students may 
have to take a science course with a 

The result of General Education on 

the College of Arts and Science will be 
tremendous. Numerous courses will be 
overloaded far beyond those of pre- 
vious years. Students who need to take 
courses for their major may be 
"bumped out" because of overenroll- 
ment. Students who wish to fill "core" 
requirements will have just as much 
trouble getting the courses they regis- 
ter for. 

The College of Arts and Sciences at 
the University of Massachusetts is the 
largest of its kind in New England and 
has become the best.

Second Largest and Most Diverse 

The College of Food and Natural Re- 
sources is the second largest school at 
the Universtiy of Massachusetts. It is 
divided into such departments as Food 
Science and Nutrition; Hotel, Restau- 
rant and Travel Administration; and 
Veterinary and Animal Sciences. The 
Entomology, Plant Pathology, and 
Landscape Architecture and Regional 
Planning departments are also includ- 
ed in this school. 

The Stockbridge School of Agricul- 
ture, founded in 1918, is part of the 
College of Food and Natural Re- 
sources. Students of the Stockbridge 
School may major in seven different 
areas, including Agricultural Business 
Management, Animal Agriculture, and 
Landscape Operation. Stockbridge 
graduates receive the Associate of Sci- 

ence degree. 

This college also administers an in- 
terdepartmental program called Inter- 
national Agricultural Studies, in which 
students choose a major within the 
school but carry an International Stud- 
ies specialty. Students may choose 
supplementary courses from the An- 
thropology, Geography, Economics, 
and Political Science departments. 

Students seeking to go to veterinary 
school select majors from the field of 
their greatest interest, and then follow 
a strict four-year curriculum specified 
by the desired graduate school. Stu- 
dents are not officially accepted into 
this school's pre-veterinary program 
until their third semester at UMass.

Learning How to Teach 

The School of Education is a compre- 
hensive professional school offering 
programs in several specialized fields. 
Many programs integrate state certifi- 
cation guidelines, professional associ- 
ation recommendations, graduate 
school requirements, and individual 
goals. The School is organized into 
three divisions, each housing a variety 
of academic concentrations. These 
concentrations are: Division of Human 
Services and Applied Behavioral Sci- 
ences; Division of Educational Policy; 
Research and Administration; and Divi- 
sion of Instructional Leadership. 

Human Service and Applied Behav- 
ioral Sciences addresses individual 
growth and development in education- 

al settings and human service agen- 
cies. The general categories of psy- 
chology and human relations skills 
serve as a base for the study of human 
interaction, group dynamics, and orga- 
nizational factors influencing individual 
learning. Concentrations include: Early 
Childhood/Human Development; Hu- 
manistic Psychological Education; Or- 
ganizational Development; Applied 
Group Studies; School, Consulting and 
Counseling Psychology; and Special 

Educational Policy, Research and 
Administration provides a theoretical 
perspective for educational systems 
and their effective application to policy 
and decision-making. Educational law.

Health is a Science 

The School of Health Sciences is 
comprised of the Division of Nursing, 
the Division of Public Health and the 
Division of Communication Disorders. 
Undergraduate majors are offered in 
these areas. 

Students who obtain a Bachelor of 
Science from the Nursing Division gen- 
erally become nursing professionals, 
after a period of graduate study. The 
UMass undergraduate curriculum en- 
courages critical evaluation of the 
nursing practice and the commitment 
to innovations in the profession. Stu- 
dents are also encouraged to partici- 
pate in nursing-related activities and to 
develop the ability to advocate clients' 
health needs. Clincial practice is 
aranged with the cooperation of area 

health facilities, including the UMass 
Medical Center in Worcester. 

The Public Health Division offers un- 
dergraduate majors in the areas of En- 
vironmental Sciences, Community 
Public Health and Environmental 
Health, whih prepare the student for 
graduate study. 

The undergraduate curriculum in the 
Division of Communication Disorders is 
pre-professionally oriented. After 
completing the University "core" re- 
quirements, students take courses in 
the disorders of speech, hearing and 
language, and the therapeutic manage- 
ment of various problems.

Preparing for the Business World 

The School of Management is divid- 
ed into four academic departments: 
Accounting and Information Systems,- 
General Business and Finance, Man- 
agement and Marketing. All of the un- 
dergraduate programs in the School of 
Management lead to the Bachelor of 
Business Administration. Admission to 
the School of Management is competi- 
tive: students must complete certain 
preliminary courses with a C or better 
before being accepted to the School. In 
recent years, increased demand by 
University and transfer students for en- 
trance into ttie School has raised the 
standards of acceptance. 

A major in Accounting and Informa- 
tion Systems might lead to certifica- 
tion as a CPA or Certified in Manage- 
ment Accounting (CMA) or Certified in 

Data Processing (CDF). Students who 
major in General Business and Finance 
choose a specific area of specialization 
within the department. 

Management majors follow a strictly 
structured curriculum during their four 
years, taking courses in areas such as 
Administrative Theory, International 
Management and Business and Its En- 
vironment. Because the marketing ma- 
jor is much in demand within the 
School of Management, only students 
with Junior year status can become 
designated Marketing majors. Stu- 
dents are encouraged to gain practical 
experience with an internship during 
their last two years.

Going for the Gold 

The School of Physical Education is 
one of the best ranked schools of its 
kind in the United States. Currently, 
the School is among the top five in the 
country when measuring the quality of 
students, faculty, and innovative pro- 
grams. It is the goal of the School to 
become number one in the nation. 

Most colleges and universities offer 
physical education classes similar to 
those in high school curricula — gym 
classes, and classes that teach people 
to teach gym classes. The University of 
Massachusetts, wanting Physical Edu- 
cation to be much more than "just a 
gym class," explored sports from the 

eyes of other disciplines. They 
searched out people with academic ex- 
pertise whose interest was in sports. 
These people were placed on faculties 
in three disciplines known as Exercise 
Science, Sport Studies, and Profes- 
sional Preparation in Physical Educa- 

Exercise Science students study hu- 
man performance within the context of 
biochemical, physiological, neurologi- 
cal and biomechanical aspects of exer- 
cise, and apply these theories in health 
and fitness - related fields in public and

b private industries. Research in the 
; study of biomechanics has been used 
I to improve performances at the Olym- 
) pic Games. Research is also being con- 
ducted w^ith the UMass Medical School. 
Doctors don't know what to do with 
people who want to get better. These 
doctors work with the Exercise Science 
department in terms of preventative 
medicine for their patients. Finally, the 
department works with fitness centers 
in the area to teach people the science 
; of running the centers. 
', Sport Studies offers students pro- 
f grams in sport theory/management 

designed to meet the needs of stu- 
dents who aspire to careers in Sport 
Management and/or academic or ad- 
ministrative positions in sport. Sociolo- 
gists and philosophers examine and re- 
search the effect of sports on society. 

Professional Preparation in Physical 
Education prepares students for certifi- 
cation as teachers of physical educa- 
tion. The degree requires expertise in 
all aspects of the School's offerings. 
This program has been well received 
among the schools involved with this 

The Graduate programs in the 

School of Physical Education were 
ranked in the top four according to a 
national survey conducted in 1980. 
UMass is proud of this ranking because 
it has only been offering graduate de- 
grees in Physical Education since 
1972, while most of the other colleges 
and universities have offered graduate 
degrees since 1910. It is expected that 
the UMass School of Physical Educa- 
tion will receive the "gold medal" 
among graduate schools within the 
next several years.

Study Habit for a Successful Career 

"Dave has a history exam tomorrow 
at 8 am. He begins to study tonight at 
8:00 pm. He rummages through his 
notes that he threw into his notebook. 
He reads the fifteen chapters that were 
assigned well over a month ago: Dave 
finally finishes at 4:00am and tries to 
sleep. His alarm goes off at 7:00am and 
he goes to his exam. Dave tries to an- 
swer the questions while fighting off 
sleep — " 

Are you Dave? Are you cramming for 
exams the night before? If you are, you 
may lack good study habits. Professors 
want you to get something out of their 
courses. Cramming may help you pass, 
but you'll forget the material a week or 
so later. Richard Porter, a graduate of 
UMass, once said "Your investment of 
time in education is the best invest- 
ment you can make. No one can take it 

away from you, and the long-term divi- 
dends and interest are the greatest 
you can receive." 

Your investment of time is your abili- 
ty to have good study habits. The bet- 
ter they are, the better you will do. 

Study habits can be developed at 
any time. The difficult part can be 
keeping them. People start developing 
the habits, start receiving good grades, 
and then stop. You must keep the 
study habits even when you receive 
good grades in order to improve your 

Study habits, at first, may be difficult 
to some. Eventually, these habits will 
come naturally, just like eating. You 
don't worry about forgetting to eat, 
you just do it. Your study habits will be 
the same way.

38/Study Habits 

What kind of study habits should you 
have? There isn't one set of habits suit- 
ed for everyone. Each person has his 
or her own atmosphere in which to 
work. Sonne examples of study habits 
are: work in a quiet room with little 
distractions, work on the hardest as- 
signments first, set a time limit for 
each assignment, take short breaks be- 
tween assignments, and organize your 
notes. These are just a few examples of 
study habits. 

Study habits at the University will 
benefit you in life later on.

The New and Improved Honors Program 

The University Honors Program of- 
fers an alternative to the traditional 
distribution requirements for students 
of high motivation and proven ability. 

Any undergraduate, who has taken 
an honors course and received a 3.2 or 
higher cum. is eligible to apply. To be 
considered for the Honors Program, a 
student must submit the following: a 
completed application, an up-tp-date 
transcript with no Fs or INCs and an 
evaluation from the professor whose 
honors course the student completed, 
recommending the student for further 
honors work. If, after an interview is 
completed, the student and interview 
agree that it is in the best interest of 
the student to join, the student is ad- 

There are two exceptions: (1) enter- 
ing freshman with SAT scores of 
600V/600M and who are in the top 
15% of their graduating class may re- 
quest an interview during orientation. 
(2) Transfer students with 48 or more 
transfer credits and a 3.5 or better 
cum may substitute an evaluation of 
course work completed at their pre- 
vious college. 

To remain in the Honors Program, a 
student needs to: maintain a 3.2 cum 
with no Fs or INCs, have taken at least 
one honors course each semester and 
have a positive evaluation from the 
honors course professor. 

The University Honors Program was 
established for those students who are 
high achievers in academics. Three to 
four years ago, the Honors Program 
was oriented towards juniors and sen- 
iors exclusely. Today, the program has 
become freshman oriented with little 
recruiting of juniors and seniors. 

The program offers its students an 
alternative course of study. The 
classes have twenty or fewer students 
enrolled, allowing more interaction be- 
tween students and their professor. 
With smaller classes, students are able 
to study the subject in more depth 
than they would if they took a regular 

When an Honors student completes 
the requirements of the Honors Pro- 
gram, the student graduates as a Com- 
monwealth Scholar, and a gold seal 
with the words "Commonwealth 

Scholar" is affixed to the diploma. 
Honors Program graduates may re- 
quest a letter of recommendation from 
the Dean of Students based upon the 
student's accumulated portfolio of 
honors course evaluations. Also, a no- 
tation indicating the student's comple- 
tion of the University Honors Program 
requirements will be made on the stu- 
dent's permanent record. 

The Honors Program is one with a 
"human face". The program offers its 
students an Honors Residential pro- 
gram in which honors students live to- 
gether in a community setting. The 
program also offers a newsletter, the 
opportunity to gather socially via get- 
acquainted parties, intramural sport 
teams and other events; and the op- 
portunity to serve the University com- 
munity in a variety of capacities. There 
is also an independent Honors Stu- 
dents Association which promotes in- 
ter-action among honors students. 

The University Honors Program 
gives its students academic enrich- 
ment and support as well as a social

More than twenty honor societies 
are affiliated with the University of 
IVIassachusettes. Fifteen of the honor 
societies are directly connected to Uni- 
versity departments; six are general 
societies for academically distin- 
guished students. 

Four national engineering societies, 
Alpha Pi Mu, Delta Epsilon, Eta Kappa 
Nu and Tau Beta Phi, have chapters at 
UMass. Alpha Pi Mu, which is a society 
of industrial engineers, inducts stu- 
dents in the top 10% of their class ju- 
f nior year. Alpha Pi Mu sponsors at least 
t ten activities per year, including career 
seminars, discussions of ethical prob- 
lems in engineering, fundraisers and 
\ picnics. Alpha Pi Mu seeks to recognize 
! the best students in Industrial Engi- 
r neering, and help to prepare them for 
( career responsibilities. 

Beta Gamma Sigma is another exam- 
Jjple of the diverse societies at UMasss. 
FThe local chapter of Beta Gamma Sig- 
ima is the honor society for Manage- 
iment students. Junior and senior un- 

Fdergraduates in the top 10% of their 
class, as well as graduate students, are 
invited to join the society, which has 
existed at UMass for more than 20 
years. Beta Gamma Sigma is a non- 
active scholastic honor society, dedi- 
cated to instilling "honor and dili- 
gence" in top Management students. 
Faculty officers are appointed yearly tQ_ 
oversee the annual meeting. 
Four honor societies at UMass rec- 

ognize seniors from all majors: Phi 
Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, Mortar 
Board and the Golden Key. The philos- 
ophy of Phi Kappa Phi is that honoring 
students who have excelled academi- 
cally in all disciplines will motivate oth- 
ers to achieve. Seniors selected by Phi 
Kappa Phi must be in the top 10% of 
their class. Phi Kappa Phi was incorpo- 
rated in 1969 "to promote academic 
excellence and achievement," by 
means of scholarships and fellowships. 

Another national senior honor soci- 
ety, the Mortar Board, focuses on pro- 
viding service for the UMass communi- 
ty, as well as encouraging leadership 
and academic excellence. Thirty-five 
juniors with a 3.2 grade point average 
or above, are selected yearly to serve 
at functions like the Parents' Weekend 
and the Dean's List Dinner.

Combining Education with Military Service 

A viable option for many students 
who would otherwise be unable to at- 
tend college is the Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps of one of the Armed 
Services. The largest number of ROTC 
students at the University of Massa- 
chusetts are in the program run by the 
U.S. Army. 

The Department of Military Science 
conducts the ROTC program for stu- 
dents desiring to earn a commission as 
an officer in the U.S. Army. Students 
desiring to earn a commmission must 
complete the equivalent of eight se- 
mesters of military science subjects. 
This can be accomplished through ei- 
ther a two- or four- year program. In 
the four-year program, students must 
successfully complete eight semesters 
of departmental offerings. These eight 
semesters may be compressed into six 
academic semester with permission of 
the department head. Two-year pro- 
gram students attend a six-week basic 

summer camp at the end of their soph- 
omore year in lieu of the first two years 
of the ROTC program. Two years of 
constructive credit may be awarded 
from previous military or ROTC train- 

In addition to classroom instruction, 
students must participate in a leader- 
ship laboratory which consists of prac- 
ticums, orientation visits to military 
bases, field trips, and briefings. The 
leadership laboratory program as well 
as extra-curricular activities are 
planned, coordinated, and conducted 
by the Corps of Cadets. 

Students also attend a six-week ad- 
vanced summer camp practicum at 
the end of their junior year. The sum- 
mer camp practicum combined with 
the leadership laboratory permits ap- 
plication of theory presented in aca- 
demic subjects. Participation in the 
program during the first two years is 
without any obligation to the military. 

While participation in the final two 
years does incur a commitment, the 
student may request to serve with the 
National Guard/ Reserve while working 
in his/her civilian career or on active 
duty at a starting salary in excess of 
$20,000 per year. The student is paid 
$100 per school month during the last 
two years of the program and may also 
apply for a two- or three-year scholar- 

Upon completion of University and 
departmental degree requirements, 
students are commissioned as Second 
Lieutenants in the Army of the United 
States. Students completing depart- 
mental requirements before degree re- 
quirements may be commissioned ear- 
ly as Second Lieutenants in the Nation- 
al Guard or in the Army Reserve.

For many, the job market of today is 
a fast-paced and ever-changing envi- 
ronment that may seem unrelenting 
and inaccessible. A college degree is no 
longer a guarantee for future success. 
Instead, more and more companies 
across the country are seeking persons 
with practical, on-the-job experience. 
One way to gain that needed exper- 
ience is to go on an internship with a 
business or corporation. 

The Office of Internships at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts is located in 
16 Curry Hicks Hall and provides stu- 
dents with the opportunity to comple- 
ment their academic work with field 
experience. Over 2,000 internship pro- 
grams are available to all qualified stu- 
dents. Also, the Office helps students 
apply to agencies not on file. 

Each year, approximately 600 stu- 
dents are given internships. To be ac- 
cepted into the program, students 
must meet certain University require- 
ments: a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative 
average, at least 45 credits toward 
graduation, and a declared major. 
These requirements may change with- 
in different departments. For example, 
some departments require students to 
have a 2.5 cum. minimum. 

Students interested in the program 
have two options to choose from. First, 
they can obtain an internship through 
the main office. To do this, they must 
attend a Planning Session, a small 
group meeting held to provide stu- 
dents with information about the In- 
ternships Office and the application 
process. At this stage, students basi- 
cally learn how to apply for a job by 
preparing cover letters and resumes. 

Following the session, students are 
given a peer advisor who works to co- 
ordinate the student's relationship 

with an agency, their faculty sponsor, 
and the University administration. Dur- 
ing the internship, the advisor makes 
an on-site visit to see the student and 
his or her supervisor. 

The counselor is also responsible for 
declaring the academic goals and ob- 
jectives of the internship. Usually, he 
or she will require the student to sub- 
mit a description of a final project that 
will fulfill these academic goals. The in- 
tern, therefore, has the opportunity to 
earn up to 15 academic credits for 
demonstration of what was learned 
during the internship. Since the intern- 
ship is considered an extention of the 
classroom, students must pay for the 
credit they receive. 

For those students who hold part- 
time jobs, the option to turn that job 
into an internship exists. In this situa- 
tion, the student works as an intern, 
possibly in a managerial position, at his 
or her place of employment and, at the 
same time, earns academic credit. The 
majority of students, however, go 
through the Office to choose their 

Payment in either instance depends 
on the employer. Some companies are 
willing to pay their interns, while others 
are not. 

Not only do UMass students intern in 
companies located in Massachusetts, 
but also across the country. To acco- 
modate the demand for out-of-state in- 
ternships, the Office is divided into 
three regions. 

First, there is the Out-of-state office, 
which primarily focuses on internships 
in Washington D.C. and New York. Sec- 
ondly, there is the Boston and Cape 
office, which provides information on 
agencies in eastern Massachusetts. 
And, third, the Western Massachusetts 

office was formed for students with an 
interest in interning at companies in 
the surrounding area. The Legal Stud- 
ies Office and the Craft Shop are two 
businesses on campus that offer stu- 
dents internship programs. In addition, 
there is an international program avail- 
able to students. 

Nineteen-eighty five was the 10th 
anniversary of the founding of the Of- 
fice of Internships. In those ten years, 
thousands of UMass students have 
been placed in companies across the 
United States. 

The majority of students who have 
participated in the program have been 
pleased with their experience and have 
returned with a greater sense of ac- 
complishment and confidence. The 
knowledge they have gained from their 
few months with a company pushes 
them forward and they approach 
courses in their chosen field of study 
with vigor and enthusiasm. 

Clearly, the internship is a valuable 
tool in obtaining future contacts, mar- 
ketable job experience, and a feel for 
the "real world."

Dn Sept. 19, a massive earthquake, 
emanated from the depths of the 
Pacific Ocean, killed thousands, 
mocked out utilities, and caused bil- 
ions of dollars in damage to three 
VIexican cities. 

The earthquake began at approxi- 
mately 7:18 a.m., and lasted for four 
ninutes. When the disaster ended, 
?0,000 people had died, and portions 
)f Mexico City were reduced to a mass 
)f dirt and rubble. 

For days, rescue teams used well- 
rained dogs to sniff out bodies buried 
jeneath the rubble. The most miracu- 
ous discover came when an eight-day- 
)ld baby was found buried alive be- 
leath the rubble that had been Mexico 
i^ity's General Hospital. 

The tragic Mexican earthquake was

ent thunderstorm, causing only minor 
lamage to the trees on campus. 

A series of devastating earthquakes rumbled througli Mexico City in September. Thousands were 
killed and damage estimates surpassed the billion dollar mark. 

In other campus news, the big issue 
which effected many students in Sep- 
tember was the University's refusal to 
sell alcohol due to the lack of an insur- 
ance policy. 

Because the University was without 
alcohol liability insurance, all campus 
bars were closed, causing an estimated 
loss of $5 million in profits. 

In order to combat the consumption 
of alcohol on campus. University offi- 
cials devised a campus alcohol policy. 
According to the policy, students living 
in residential halls were not allowed to 
drink in public spaces (i.e., hallways, 
lounges, and bathrooms). However, 
students of age were still permitted to 
drink in their rooms. According to

The hijacking of the Italian cruise lin- 
er, Achilla Lauro, and the cold- 
blooded murder of American passen- 
ger, Leon Klinghoffer, on Oct. 7, 
rocked the U.S. and heightened the 
world's awareness and hatred toward 
terrorism and terrorist countries. 

It was early afternoon on the seventh 
when the 24,000-ton vessel left port in 
Alexandria, Egypt. Four Palestinian ter- 
rorists seized the ship, and demanded 
the release of 50 Palestinian prisoners. 
According to reports, the terrorists se- 
parated the British and American pas- 
sengers from the others, and insisted 
that Italian and American ambassadors 
be contacted. The terrorists stated 
that if their political demands were not 
met, they would destroy the ship. 

Unfortunately, a delay in contact oc- 
cured and as an act of retaliation, the 
terrorists shot wheelchair-bound 
stroke victim Leon Klinghoffer, and 
dumped his body into the sea. 

This act, however, did not go unno- 
ticed by American officials. Four days 
after the incident, President Ronald 
Reagan launched a successful, non-vio- 
lent stroke against the Palestinian's by 
sending four U.S. F-14 warplanes to in- 
tercept the Egyptian Boeing 737 carry- 

ing the terrorists to safer ground. With 
this action, Reagan conveyed a mes- 
sage to the world that terrorist actions 
will not be tolerated by the U.S. 

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syn- 
drome has, in the past two years, be- 
come a topic of serious discussion. 
However, it wasn't until the death of 
actor Rock Hudson, on Oct. 2, that the 
seriousness turned to panic as over 
14,000 AIDS-related cases were re- 
ported by the end of the month. Coun- 
tries such as France, Brazil, and Haiti 
also reported sharp increases in the 
number of AIDS cases disclosed in 

Widespread hysteria over exposure 
to the fatal disease resulted from the 
public's lack of proper medical knowl- 
edge. Researchers have determined 
that sexual intercourse, especially be- 
tween homosexual men, is by far the 
leading means of transmission. Howev- 
er, other groups such as drug-users 
who share the same needles, and he- 
mophiliacs are also at a great risk. 

To dispel public fear, many schools 
and colleges, including UMass, adopt- 
ed AIDS policies. 

According to the University policy, 
students, faculty, and employees who 
have contracted the disease will be al- 
lowed to remain on campus. University 
health officials will be committed to 
working with students to teach them 
about the disease, and, most impor- 
tantly, to inform the students that it is 
the victim who is in danger, not them. 

The AIDS policy was devised, accord- 
ing to Health Service officials, to pro- 
vide the victim with confidentiality, 
medical treatment, and support. 

According to a report by the state 
legislature, people from Massachusetts 
state universities have cost taxpayers 
nearly $300,000 in long-distance 
phone calls to such places as Bots- 
wana, Africa and Iran. 

The report stated that taxpayers 
were paying for phones in government 
offices that didn't exist. Personal calls 
to Africa, Cuba, Europe, the Northern 
Antilles and the Middle East were re- 
portedly being charged to some 950 
phones on Massachusetts campuses.

On Nov. 20, President Ronald Rea- 
gan, and Soviet leader Mil<hail 
Gorbachev met face-to-face for the 
first time to discuss methods of reduc- 
ing nuclear weapons and improving So- 
viet-American relations. 

For eight hours on the 20th and 
21st, the two leaders sat directly 
across from each other and tried to set 
guidelines that would reduce the num- 
ber of nuclear weapons produced by 
each country to end the rivlary be- 
I tween the two superpowers. 

Both Reagan and Gorbachev agreed 
I that the number of nuclear weapons in 
each country must be reduced. How- 
ever, neither of the two leaders could 
agree upon a proper method of disar- 
mament. Gorbachev would not seri- 
ously negotiate unless Reagan decided 
to abandon his proposal for a "Star 
Wars" defense program, something 
r President Reagan would not do. 

When the summit ended on Nov. 22 
very little progress toward arms reduc- 
tio had been made. According to re- 
ports, the two leaders agreed to re- 
duce nuclear weapons by 50 percent. 
However, the weapons that would be 
cut were not specificed. 

Other agreements included cultural 
exchanges and a promise to hold fu- 
ture summit meetings. 

According to American and Soviet of- 
ficials, if anything at all resulted from 
the summit, it was a willingness be- 
tween the two countries to talk and 
negotiate with each other and to avoid 
the action-counteraction tactics of the 

Nearly 20,000 people were killed or 
reported missing when the South 
American city of Columbia was de-

Nov. 20. 

The explosion reportedly occured 
from the buildup of molten rock and 
trapped gases caused from the move- 
ment of two of the earth's tectonic 

Following the eruption, streams of 
lava and ash rocketed down the moun- 
tainside, melting the snow and ice 
which blanketed the mountain, and 
caused giant mudslides to bury towns 
lying on its edge. 

The Lord Jeffrey Inn, in Amherst, 
closed its bar and restaurant on Nov. 6, 
leaving nearly 50 union employees 
without jobs. 

The decision to close the inn came 
after a sharp decline in food and bever- 
age sales, which reportedly made up 
55 percent of its income. The lack of 
business was believed to be the result 
of a strike by members of the local 217 
Hotel and Restaurant Employees 
Union, who began picketing on Oct. 
24th over a contract dispute. Many de- 
livery drivers would not cross the pick- 
et line to deliver supplies to the inn, 
thus leaving its stockroom nearly emp- 
ty. According to inn executives, ap- 
proximately $200,000 will be lost this 
fiscal year because of the decline in

In an attempt to balance the federal 
, budget, both the Senate and the 
House of Representatives approved a 
bill on Dec. 11 that would reportedly 
lower the current $200 billion deficit to 
zero by 1991. 

The Senate debated for approxi- 
mately nine hours before they passed 
the bill on a bipartisan vote of 6 1 to 31 . 

The House took 90 minutes before 
they passed it on a bipartisan vote of 
271 to 154. 

President Reagan endorsed the bill, 
but was reportedly apprehensive about 
its effect on the military budget. 

In both the House and the Senate, 
the majority of Republicans supported 
the bill, while nearly one-half of the 
Democrats in the Senate and a major- 
ity in the House did not. 

The new bill would set deficit ceilings 
that would drop from year to year until 
1991, when the budget will supposedly 
be balanced. The bill gives the Presi- 
dent the power to enforce reductions 
in both military and non-military spend- 
ing if Congress and the White House 
are unable to agree on deficit cuts each 
year. Social Security and other aid to 
the poor and elderly would not be af- 
fected by the cuts. 

For fiscal year 1987, reductions are 
expected to be $55 million. According 
to Republicans, the President would 
have to cut at least 30 to 50 non-mili- 

tary programs if he refused to cut mili- 
tary spending. 

White House officials said that the 
proposal is a major change in the cur- 
rent budget process.

A total of 23 students, belonging to a 
larger group of about 65 people calling 
themselves Students Advocating 
Rights Together (START), were arrest- 
ed during the three days of protest and 
sit-ins on December 5-8 concerning 
the management of the Student Activi- 
ties Trust Fund. 

In the past, the budget has been 
drawn up by the Undergraduate Stu- 
dent Senate and then passed on to 
Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Den- 
nis Madson, Chancellor Joseph Duffy 
and the University President David 
Knapp for review and recommenda- 

Protests began in reaction to Mad- 
son's decision to allow the student ac- 
tivities budget for the fiscal year 1987 
to be determined by Director of Stu- 
dent Activities Randy Donant. 

The budget had a $120,000 deficit at 
the end of fiscal year 1985, and 
$75,000 had to be borrowed from re- 
serves for the current fiscal year 1986 
to fund operations. 

It was the intention of Madson and 

Donant to control the allocation of 
about $1.5 million of the $1.75 million 
student activities budget that is paid 
out of the SATF. These actions would 
reportedly diminish student input for 
the allocation process. 

To combat the deficit, student lead- 
ers held a referendum on Oct. 29 to 
raise the activities fee by $12 per stu- 
dent. However, only three percent of 
the required 15 percent of the under- 
graduate student body voted. The ma- 
jority of those who voted, voted 
against an increase. 

Student leaders held a second refer- 
endum in December, but only about 10 
percent of the student population vot- 
ed for the $12 increase, leaving it non- 

Meanwhile students were threat- 
ened with suspension and were arrest- 
ed for trespassing at Whitmore Admin- 
istration Building. They were allegedly 
interfering with the work of employees 
and encouraging other students to 
cause damage to the building. 

The leaders of START were responsi- 
ble for sponsoring the rallies on the 
Student Union steps and attempting 
negotiations with Madson. 

The flurry of activity peaked during 
finals week and was temporarily put on 
the back burner until further negotia- 
tions could be started.

In early December, Governor Mi- 
chael Dukakis signed a bill prohibiting 
fraternities and sororities in Massachu- 
setts from hazing while initiating new 

He signed the bill in response to a 
rise in the number of injuries and 
deaths associated with hazing. It calls 
for fines of up to $1,000 or 100 days 
in jail for people caught hazing. Also, 
the bill fines those indirectly involved 
with hazing activities. 

Hazing involves the initiation of fra- 
ternity and sorority pledges by using 
unconventional methods or practical 
jokes, such as heavy drinking in short 
periods of time or promoting physical 
or mental anguish. 

The alcohol overdose death of Jay 
Lenaghan, an American International 
College fraternity pledge, created a na- 
tional concern for fraternity and soror- 
ity rituals. It reportedly showed what 
could happen nationally if hazing was 

not controlled.

Media makes violence a 
household name 

I was lucky enough to get a ticket to 

one of the opening shows of Sud- 
den Impact at a local theater in my 
hometown. As with many popular mov- 
ies, the house was packed that night. 
Certainly everyone in the theater was 
familiar with the reputation of the char- 
acter, Dirty Harry, as portrayed by 
Clint Eastwood. There was one that 
really stuck out in my mind, one that 
I'm sure nearly everyone today is famil- 
iar with, even people that never saw 
the movie. The bad-guy was holding his 
gun to a woman's head and was threat- 
ening to ". . blow her head off." Dirty 
Harry didn't flinch. He held his gun, 
aimed straight at the man and used 
those immortal words, "Go ahead, 
make my day!" 

The audience stood up and cheered. 

After the movie Rambo came out, 
there were a lot of kids running around 
with toy guns, such as the official 
Rambo Squirtgun. In the late seventies 
and early eighties, karate regalia be- 
came popular with adolescents due to 
all the kung-fu movies playing at that 
time. Teen-scream movies, such as Fri- 
day the 13th and Halloween have al- 
ways thrilled audiences with their ultra- 
violence and gore, and many other 
movies mimicking these role models 
have appeared along the side. 

Television has al-ways had violence in 
one form or another. From the west- 
erns of the fifties to the news of today, 
violence is definitely the way to catch 
an audience. The news today is almost 
always opening with a report about ter- 
rorism, and many of us are familiar 
with the exploits of Bugs Bunny and his 
friends. With all this, one has to wonder 
how violence in the media is effecting 

Ghandi won critical acclaim, but 
Rambo really raked in the bucks. Vio- 
lence has appeared in literature 
throughout human history, from 
Homer, and earlier, to Shakespeare to 
today's Steven King. Obviously, acts of 
violence from the blatant to the clan- 
destine are fascinating to people in one 
way or the other. The media would be 
foolish not to notice the potential to 
make money on that. 

Probably one of the most visible acts 
of violence going on in the world now is 
terrorist attacks. And they have found 
their way into our homes mainly 
through news reports, which now treat 
them as routine, telling us 1) what hap- 
pened, 2) who did it, and 3) why they 
did it. With everyone becoming frus- 
trated by these acts of mass murder, 
the entertainment industry has re-

in April 1985 in a record 2,165 theaters and became one of the highest grossing films of the 
year. I 

sponded by bringing us such films as 
Invasion: U.S.A., the Rambo films and 
Commando. All have heroes fighting 
back, using the enemies' own tactics 
against them. The media took the pop- 
ulation's frustration and used it to sell 
films centered on violence. 

The Dirty Harry films also play on the 
frustrations of people, though the 
source is urban crime, particularly the 
type where the bad guy gets away. 
Clint Eastwood gives us a man who is 
the judge, jury, and the executioner all 
wrapped into one. Harry knows he's 
right, we know when he's right, and the 
guys know when he's right. Dirty Harry 
always gets his man, whether he goes 
by the rules or not, and the audience 
loves it. What's the key? I asked differ- 
ent people who saw the film if they 
liked it and if they did, why? The major- 
ity opinion was they loved seeing the 
villian get it in the end. The same ap- 
plied for other films where the hero 
fought back against the criminal. 

So what is all this spectacularized 
violence, whether real or fantasy, do- 
ing to the public? With films that depict 
war of fighting back against terrorism, 
many will say that it is creating a na- 
tionalistic atmosphere, others say it 
only generates patriotism at best, and 
the rest either feel it acts as a vent for 
society or have no opinion. With films 
in the cops and robbers category 
some claim that vigilante responses 
are being encouraged. Many people re- 
spond to such worries as these with, 
"What's wrong with having a little pride 
or saying 'Enough!'?" But does media 
portrayal of violence encourage more 

On the adult level, the general an- 
swer is "no." Adults aren't that impres- 
sionable on such levels. Some authori 
ties, however, argue that the way the 
news agencies glamourize acts of ter- 
rorism only serves to bring to the world 
the terrorist's claims and, therefore,! 
encourage them to continue their vioi 

54/Violence in Media 


But on the adolescent and child lev- 
el, there is evidence to support the 
claim that the media's portrayal of vio- 
lence might be influencing many 
youths to use violence as a tool. But 
the arguments for both sides, pro and 
con, are strong. Studies have shown 
that seeing excessive violence on tele- 
vision does encourage aggressive be- 
havior to an extent in some children. 
But there is no set measure for aggres- 
sive behavior. Using foul language 
might be considered overly aggressive 
to one person, but not so to another. 
Also, many studies don't take into ac- 
count the time factor involved: was the 
child aggressive before or after seeing 
the program in question? Moreover, 
there seems to be no set environmen- 
tal factor, such as parental affection or 
punishment styles, social class, or 
communication influences involved. 
Though when all such tests are taken 
into consideration, they do reveal it to 
be linked to the personality of the given 
individual. Many sociologists believe 
that aggressive behavior in a child will 
harbor a tendency for him or her to 
become more aggressive after long- 
term exposure to heavy violence in me-

One of the hijackers of a Boeing 747 aircraft peers through a window in the planes cocl<pit. 
Reports of terrorists attacks and other such violence became routine on evening news programs 
this year. 

Studies of short term effects show 
that there is a tendency among chil- 
dren to be more aggressive after view- 
ing violence. 

An interesting thing is that each 
"side" of these studies attacks the as- 
sumptions of the other side, thus mak- 
ing it difficult to come to accurate con- 
clusions. The societal determinists be- 
lieve that media violence undoubtedly 
promotes aggressive behavior, while 
the biological determinists feel that 
violence stems from certain personal- 
ity and habitual traits. In the end, how- 
ever it boils down to personal choice in 
the matter. The overall effects of me- 
dia violence on behavior are small 
compared with other stimuli, such as 
peer pressure, home environment, and 
the personality of the individual. In- 
deed, a child might become more 
prone to aggressive behavior in re- 
sponse to being restricted from it by 
the parents. 

Ultimately, the parents should help 
the child interpret what he or she is 
seeing by explaining that dramatized 
violence is not "real," and pointing out 
where violence fails to achieve its goal.

Americans mourned the deaths of 
seven astronauts on Jan. 28 as 
the space shuttle Challenger, just 73 
seconds into flight, exploded in a fiery 
blast nine miles above the Atlantic 

Reasons for the explosion were not 
immediately evident. However, slow- 
motion replays of the launch showed 
that an explosion in one of the shuttle's 
two rocket boosters ignited the exter- 
nal fuel tank, which then burst and en- 
gulfed the Challenger in flames. 

Subsequent photos showed that a 
dark-plume of smoke was evident im- 
mediately after the boosters were ig- 
nited. According to NASA officials, hot 
gases in the boosters may have es- 
caped through a safety seal on the 
booster's seam because of enormous

stress, cold weather, or both. 

The preparation for the shuttle's 
launch was painstakingly slow. The 
, original mission was scheduled for Jan. 
20. However, because of numerous de- 
lays, the launch was postponed until 
Jan. 27. On the twenty-seventh, a 
sticky bolt, preventing the removal of 
an exterior hatch, and strong gusty 
winds delayed the launch once again. 
The next day, on Jan. 28. under freez- 
ing conditions and blue skies, the shut- 
tle was launched. 

The Challenger's flight was the first 

in-flight disaster of 56 successful 
manned space missions in 25 years, 
although three astronauts were killed 
because of a launch pad explosion in 
1967 during the AdoIIo program. 

Two days after the explosion, search 
teams discovered several large sec- 
tions of the Challenger. According to 
reports, searchers found a control pan- 
el, a part of the fuselage, and pieces of 
the cockpit. At the same time, a me- 
morial service for the seven crew 
members was being held at the John- 
son Space Center in Houston, Texas. In 
his address to a crowd of thousands. 
President Reagan bade farewell to the 
astronauts and urged Americans to 
pick up and move on despite the trage- 

For many, the Challenger crew re- 
presented the ideals of America. They 
were: Francis "Dick" Scobee, com- 
mander; Michael Resnick, pilot; Ronald 
McNair; Ellison Onizuka; Gregory Jar- 
vis; Judith Resnik; and Christa McAu- 
liffe, the first civilian/teacher in space. 

As millions of Americans sat glued to 
their television sets, the Chicago Bears 
defeated the New England Patriots, 46- 
10, in Super Bowl XX, on Jan. 26. 

The Bears showed a remarkable dis- 
play of defense, stifling the Patriots at 
every turn and forcing quarterback 
Tony Eason from the game before 

completing a pass. 

Chicago overpowered the Patriots in 
runs, passes and sacks, scoring more 
points than any other team since the 
National Football League began having 
Super Bowls. 

The first quarter got off to a disap- 
pointing start for Eason as he threw 
three incomplete passes and was 
sacked by Chicago's defensive end 
Richard Dent. 

A 36-yard field goal by Tony Franklin, 
however, put the Patriots ahead, 3-0. 
Nonethless, despite their quick lead, 
the Patriots did not score again until 
the fourth quarter, after Steve Grogan 
made an 8-yard pass to Irving Fryar. By 
then, the score was 44-10 with only 
13:14 left to play. 

The Bears began their destruction 
early, sacking Tony Eason in the first 
quarter and causing him to fumble, set- 
ting up the second of three successful 
field goals for Kevin Butler. By the end 
of the first quarter, the stage was set 
for further game action as Chicago as- 
sumed the lead, 23-3. 

The only real controversy of the en- 
tire game came after the Bears drove 
for 72 yards in the last three minutes of 
the first quarter and Kevin Butler 
kicked a 24-yard field goal as time ran 
out. Later NFL officials ruled that time 
should have run out prior to the kick.

On Feb. 26, after President Ferdi- 
nand E. Marcos fled in fear for his 
life, Corazon C. Aquino was named 
president of the Philippines, ending an 
election marred by violence and wide- 
spread reports of cheating by both 

Incidents of voter intimidation and 
ballot seizing were reported immedi- 
ately when voting began on Feb. 7. In 
one small province, four masked gun- 
men ransacked an elementary school 
and seized ballot boxes, halting elec- 
tion procedures for over an hour. As a 
result, by the end of the election re- 
ports from only 25 percent of the 
86,000 precincts had been disclosed. 

On Feb. 9, thirty fearful vote- 
counters stormed out of the govern- 
ment's election commission claiming 
that ballot-counting was being falsified 
in Marcos' favor. At the same time, the 
American commission sent to observe 
the election accused President Marcos 
of voter intimidation, vote-buying, and 
tampering with election results. 

In response to the Philippine situa- 
tion, President Reagan threatened to 
withhold promised aid to the Philip- 
pines. He never took this action. 

By Feb. 14, the National Assembly, in 
charge of vote tabulation, declared 
Marcos ahead with 6,403,785 votes to 
5,584,581 for Aquino. The National 
Movement for Free Elections, an inde- 
pendent poll-group, however, had Cor- 
azon Aquino ahead with 7,158,678 
votes to 6,532,362 for Marcos. Subse- 
quently, Marcos declared himself win- 
ner of the election and vowed to re- 
main president of the Filipino nation. 

Following Marcos' proclaimed victo- 
ry, Mrs. Aquino embarked on a cam- 
paign that would reportedly restore de- 
mocracy to the Philippines. Her strate- 
gy included strikes, school walkouts, 
boycotts and noise barrages. 

Using what she termed as "people 
power," Mrs. Aquino forced President 
Marcos to resign from his position, 
ending 20 years of highly personal rule 
by Mr. Marcos. 

Following his resignation, Marcos 
was flown to the U.S. Air Force's Clark 
Air Base by American helicopters and 
later to the U.S. 

Approximately 85 Amherst residents 
traveled to Philadelphia, Penn. to join 
nearly 3,500 demonstrators for a rally 
and march against racism on Feb. 15. 

The National Mobilization Against 
Racism, a Philadelphia-based organiza- 
tion, reportedly called the march in re- 
sponse to a perceived rise in racism, 
believed to be instigated by the Reagan 
administration. The organization was

formed last spring following the bomb- 
ing of a black back-to-nature group, 
called MOVE, in which 11 people were 
killed and 61 houses destroyed after 
Philadelphia police dropped a satchel 
charge on the home of the coalition. 

According to reports, the march was 
a peaceful, non-violent demonstration. 
About 15 speakers from student orga- 
nizations, labor unions, and gay and 
lesbian groups spoke to the crowd in 
support of racial equality. Many march- 
ers carried signs stating, "Stop Rea- 
gan's Racism," and "Budget cuts and 
union busting." 

According to officials nearly 15 other 
colleges were present at the march. 

President Jean-Claude Duvalier fled 
to France aboard a United States Air 
Force jet on Feb. 7, ending 28 years of 
family rule over the impoverished na- 
tion of Haiti. 

President Duvalier's flight came after 
two months of violent unrest over eco- 
nomic conditions and political re- 
presession. He reportedly stepped 
down to save his six million people 
from what he called a "nightmare of 

His departure from an airport in 
Port-au-Prince, Haiti was greeted with 
loud horn blasts and wild cheering. Ac- 
cording to his announcement, the 
armed forces would rule the govern- 

ment with a six-member ruling council 
including two citizens. 

A pungent odor invaded the WMUA 
radio station production room, then 
spread to other parts of the Campus 
Center basement on Feb. 19. 

The smell was described as mildew, 
vomit, bad eggs, sweatsocks, or 
sewage. According to Dudley Bridges, 
manager of Building Operations, the 
smell was caused by a gas leak that 
occurred when a Coca-Cola machine's 
line broke and ate into another pipe. 
The pipe was corroded by the acid in 
the soda. 

The machine was located in the Blue- 
Wall cafeteria — directly above WMUA. 
It reportedly began to emit a sticky 
brown substance which dripped 
through the ceiling, down the walls and 
into the station's production room. 

According to Paul Blake, public rela- 
tions coordinator for the station, "We 
smelled it for a while but didn't know 
what it was." It wasn't until Jim Neill, 
production director, stepped in a 
strange puddle on the station's carpet 
that they noticed it. 

According to WMUA disc jockey Neil 
Grant, "We (were) thinking about 
bringing a skunk in to ratify the situa-

were the paste-up room in the Colle- 
gian and room 101, the SGA's meeting

Libyan leader Moammar Kadafi stands with 
arms crossed during a press conference after 
the U.S. and Libya clashed in the 
Mediterranean Sea. 

American and Libyan forces 
clashed in the disputed waters off 
the Libyan coast on March 25. 

The incident began in the Gulf of Si- 
dra after Libyan ground forces fired six 
missiles at American planes conducting 
maneuvers in the Mediterranean Sea. 
In retaliation, American forces fired at 
two Libyan vessels and a missile site on 
Libyan soil. 

One vessel was set afire and seen 
dead in the water. The other was se- 
verely damaged. The missile site was 
reported to be "out of action." 

According to subsequent informa- 
tion, no American planes or vessels 
were damaged, although Libyan radio 
reported that three American planes 
had been shot down. 

The fighting occurred after three 
American ships crossed Col. Muammar 
el-Kadafi's "line of death," which is set 
at 100 miles from the Libyan shoreline. 
The U.S. and other countries, however, 
recognize only a 12-mile offshore belt 
as Libyan territory. 

According to Reagan administration 
officials, the American vessels were 
conducting peaceful jnaneuvers in the 
gulf to stress the legal point that be- 
yond the 12-mile limit, the Gulf of Sidra 
belongs to no one. 

Two days later, on March 26, Ameri- 
can forces fired at and destroyed two 
more Libyan ships and a missile site on 
the coast. According to American offi- 
cials, the attack was in response to 
hostile Libyan intent and not an actual 

At the same time, Kadafi (whom the 
U.S. has accused of sponsoring terror- 
ist activities) stated that he was pre- 
pared for war with the United States. 

The Contras, the guerrillas fighting in 
Central America to overthrow the 
Nicaraguan government, are winning 
and growing because of the Nicara- 
guan people's support, according to a 
spokesman for the group. 

Jorge Resales, assistant to the press 
secretary for the Nicaraguan forces, 
spoke to a capacity crowd in the Stu- 
dent Union Ballroom on March 31. He 
outlined the last seven year's events 
that have led to the "betrayal of the 
Nicaraguan revolution," saying that 
the Soviet Union has been supplying 
the Sandinista government with weap- 
ons and supplies that are threatening 
the Centra's fight for democracy. 

He went on to say that it is important 
for the United States to support the 
Contras because of Nicaragua's prox- 
imity to the United States. 

The speech ended after about 75 
minutes due to a "violent crowd" out- 
side of the SUB. Earlier that same day, 
two rallies were held on both sides of 
the Student Union. 

In the first rally, about 150 people 
expressed their support for President 
Ronald Reagan's proposal for $100 
million in military and humanitarian aid 
to the Contras. 

"These people (the Contras) want to 
fight like the founding fathers fought," 
said Lynne McCabe, a senator from 
Sylvan. "Our duty is to ensure democ- 

At the same time, about 300 stu- 
dents near the campus pond listened 
to speakers and singers who opposed 

the presence of Contras at UMass. 

Students at the rally dressed in 
green army fatigues and cheered loud- 
ly as speakers denounced Reagan's 
Nicaraguan policy. 

At one point, an ad-hoc coalition of 
students erected a graveyard next to 
the campus pond with 59 crosses bear- 
ing the names of Nicaraguans report- 
edly slain by the Contras. 

In addition, speakers described 
methods of killing, saying that men 
have been "shot in the head," and 
"cut up with a knife." 

After weeks of controversy, the Un- 
dergraduate Student Senate passed 
the fiscal year 1987 Student Govern- 
ment Association budget on March 12 
by a roll call vote of 34-19. 

According to the new budget, 37 reg- 
istered student organizations received 
funding cuts, 14 lost all funding, while 
17 received increases. The proposal al- 
located $84,243.73 for RSOs on cam- 

"Political" organizations, such as 
the Republican Club, the Peacemak- 
ers, and the Radical Student Union 
were not funded because they report- 
edly can solicit funds of their own. Also, 
Drum magazine was not funded be- 
cause the budget committee believed 
the magazine was linked to a class. 

Among the organizations that did re- 
ceive funding were: Abilities Unlimited, 
AHORA, Nummo News, Spectrum, and

The United States conducted a se- 
ries of air raids on April 14 against 
what Washington called "terrorist cen- 
ters" in Libya. 

The decision to go through with the 
attack came after President Reagan 
found "direct, precise, and irrefutable" 
evidence that Libya was behind the 
April 5 bombing of a West Berlin disco- 
theque that killed one American ser- 
viceman and a Turkish woman and in- 
jured 200 others. 

According to the president, in a 
speech to the American public, Ameri- 
can forces "succeeded in their mis- 
sion" of retaliating against Col. Moam- 
mar Kadafi's "reign of terror." 

Reports of the incident said five mili- 
tary bases, reportedly being used to 
train terrorists, were hit with American 
I ammunition during the raid. President 
Reagan stated that efforts were made 
to "minimize casualties among the Lib- 
yan people." Subsequent reports, how- 
ever, indicated that civilian areas were 
! damaged. Col. Kadafi's headquarters 
and home were hit by bombs and his 
I adopted daughter was reportedly killed 
in the attack. 

The fifteen American A-6 planes that 
were used in the attack were allowed 
to take off from an American base in 
Britain, but forced to fly around 

The bombing began at approximate- 
ly 7 p.m. Eastern time, when the planes 
simultaneously struck two targets in 
Benghazi, a city on the Gulf of Sidra. 
The attack lasted a half hour. 

According to officials, the bombings 
iwere conducted in the middle of the 
■night because the Libyan Air Force 
I does not fly at night. 

The attack against Libya met with 
some opposition from American citi- 
zens and foreign allies, namely France. 
Protests were held around the world 
'Condemning Reagan's actions. In one 
instance, a firebomb was hurled at the 
United States Marine headquarters in 
Tunisia. No injuries were reported. 

Congress, which is required under 
[■the War Powers Act of 1973 to be con- 
^ suited on all military actions taken by 
S'the president, was generally supportive 
itof the attack, but some Congressmen 
ifelt that they should have been in- 
iformed earlier about Reagan's inten- 
tions. The American planes were al- 
'ready in the air before Congress was 

The Soviet Union announced on April 
28 that there had been an accident at 
the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 
the Ukraine.

j ment came nearly four days after the 
accident occurred when Sweden, lo- 
cated 800 miles from the Ukraine, dis-

divisions of the 90th running of the Boston Marathon. Both received $30,000 and a Mercedes 

covered abnormally large amounts of 
radioactivity in the air and water. 

The severity of the accident was not 
immediately known because Tass, the 
Soviet news agency, refused to dis- 
close anything more than short and 
vague statements about the incident. 

Later, in a second statement, it was 
revealed that the nuclear reactor ex- 
perienced a meltdown and that four 
settlements had been evacuated. 

The first Soviet statement on the 
number of deaths from the accident 
reported that two people had died. The 
United States and other countries criti- 
cized this statement, saying that in an 
accident of such magnitude the death 
toil could reach into the thousands. 

Experts who studied the Chernobyl 
accident believe that the graphite core 
of the reactor caught fire and sent ra- 
dioactive material into the air. 

The nuclear cloud did not have a di- 
sastrous effect on the United States, 
but farmlands near Chernobyl may not 
be usable for several generations. 

The U.S. offered humanitarian aid to 
the Soviets, but faulted their technol- 
ogy. The Soviet Union uses graphite, a 
form of lead, to moderate nuclear re- 
actions, while the U.S. uses water as its 
primary coolant. 

A visit by anti-gay activist Paul Ca- 
meron on April 13 caused tempers to 
flare among UMass students and facul- 
ty and forced gay and lesbian students 
to protest the Whitmore Administra- 
tion Building for enforcement of the 
University's anti-discrimination clause. 

Surrounded by protesters and some 
supporters, Cameron told the crowd of 
approximately 300 people that civil 

rights should be stripped from homo- 

"No one would deny that homosex- 
uals are human. It doesn't mean we 
have to give them special rights," said 

Cameron, who is a psychologist and 
chairman of the Institute for the Scien- 
tific Investigation of Sexuality, a non- 
profit organization against gay rights, 
said that society has made a mistake 
by giving homosexuals the same liber- 
ties as heterosexuals. 

He said that homosexuality is 
"worse than murder," and that homo- 
sexual activity is a "blight on society." 

Homosexuals and lesbians in the 
crowd wore T-shirts that read, "No Vio- 
lence." Campus police kept the crowd 
peaceful during the speech, although 
Cameron was hit with two eggs thrown 
by demonstrators. 

Following the speech, approximately 
250 students held a counter-rally at 
the Student Union to protest Camer- 
on's speech and to celebrate Gay and 
Lesbian Awareness Week. 

The demonstrators titled their rally, 
"An injury to one is an injury to all." 

Kevin Sweeney, a member of the 
University Democrats said, "It is not 
just a cause for the issue of gay rights; 
it is a cause for humanity." 

The rally ended with the launching of 
a "wheel" made of crepe paper and 
helium balloons to symbolize the unifi- 
cation of all groups.

The leaders of the seven major in- 
dustrial democracies of the world 
met on May 4-7 at the 12th annual 
economic summit in Tokyo. 

According to Reagan Administration 
officials, the three-day conference was 
one of the most successful meetings in 
years. Accomplishments in three major 
areas were made. 

However, before negotiations got un- 
derway, an unknown group fired five 
homemade rockets at Japan's Akasaka 
Palace, where the seven leaders were 
being welcomed. No injuries were re- 
ported and the leaders seemed un- 
daunted by the attack. 

The leaders made swift progress on 
several political issues immediately fol-

President Reagan handed out a 10- 
page statement on his "views" on ter- 

The next day, after the leaders, had 
read the statement, Reagan made a

countries to fight through "deter-

After the president's appeal, the sev- 
en adopted a joint policy to combat 
terrorism "relentlessly and without

tion regarding any type of nuclear acci- 
dent or emergency. 

In regard to economic achieve- 
ments, the leaders of the seven partici- 
pating countries — Britain, France, Ita- 
ly, Canada, Japan, the United States, 
and West Germany — set up the Group 
of Seven, which will include the finance 
ministers of the seven nations. 

It will annually assess each member 
country's economic performance and 
recommend changes when policies 
seem damaging to others. 

Students who applied for financial 
aid for the 1986-87 school year were 
the first to be faced with a new verifica- 
tion process implemented by the De- 
partment of Education. 

The new policy was devised to deter 
mismanagement in student aid pro- 
grams, according to the University's 
chief financial aid administrator. 

In the past, students applying for aid 
at the University of Massachusetts 
were simply required to submit the 
standard financial aid form and copies 
of their parents' tax returns. 

Now, however, the new policy re- 
quires students to complete forms to 
verify income and household data. 
Even independent students must sub- 
mit copies of their parents' tax returns 
along with their own. 

According to Arthur Jackson, direc- 
tor of the UMass Financial Aid Office, 
"It (the process) is done in the name of 
efficiency and accuracy. It doesn't im- 
prove either." 

The Financial Aid Office opposes the 
new policy because it will reportedly 
almost double their already massive 
amount of paper work. According to 
Jackson, "Our own verification tech- 
niques were working fine. It's just one 
more hurdle that we're going to have 
to clear." 

University administration officials 
enforced stricter security measures at 
this year's graduation ceremony. 

Seniors entering the McGuirk Alumni 
Stadium were asked to carry their 
robes so they could not conceal cans 
or bottles beneath them. 

According to officials, the extra secu- 
rity measures were taken to combat 
the "circus-like" atmosphere of past

In The Middle 
of Everything 

The Central Residential Area is located right 
in the middle of the University campus, as 
its name suggests. The University Health Center 
and the New Africa House are located among the 
ten traditionally-styled buildings in this living area. 
Each dormitory usually has four floors with ap- 
proximately 30 to 40 residents per floor. Occu- 
pancy of the halls ranges from 120 to 340 stu- 
dents. Although most rooms are arranged for 
double occupancy, a few singles are available to 
student staff and upperclass students. 

Nine of these dormitories are coeducational 
while one, Van Meter South, is an all-female hall. 
Two of the renovated halls, Brett and Brooks, are 
barrier-free to make them fully accessible to 
handicapped students. Baker houses the Central 
Area Governmant offices and computer termi- 
nals. For those willing to try out their artistic abili- 
ties, Greenough provides a craft shop, as well as a 
snackbar for those late-night munchies attacks. 
The Area Women's Center and art gallery are 
located in Wheeler. The Academic centers, with 
study space, tutorials and other academic re- 
sources are located in Van Meter, Baker, and 

The hill area between Van Meter and Orchard 
Hill is used for sunbathing during the warmer 
months. The Baker hill is enjoyed by many for 
sliding and pulling ski stunts during the winter. 
Many students try out their basketball skills on 
the court which is also located between Van Me- 
ter and Orchard Hill. This basketball court also 
was the location of an 'Oktober Fest' celebration 
of th.e German holiday with good food and music. 
Many dorms hold dances each semester and 
some even have semiformals.

Life in 
the Quad 

The nine small traditionally-styled buildings 
which form a rectangle around a large 
grassy area are known as the Northeast Residen- 
tial Area. The grassy area in the center has been 
given the name "the Quad" and is the site of such 
activities as volleyball, football, frisbee throwing, 
snowball fights and much more. 

Located conveniently near the Graduate Re- 
search Center and Totman Gym, Northeast 
houses about 1400 students and also houses en- 
tering freshmen and transfer students during ori- 
entation. These dormitories are generally smaller 
than most dorms, which creates a more personal 
atmosphere. Residents say that they can get to 
know most of the other students in the dorm 
because it has so few people. 

There are four renovated halls in the area: Lew- 
is, Thatcher, Hamlin and Knowlton. Several halls 
have fireplaces and saunas, and each hall has 
study rooms and recreation space. The North- 
east/Sylvan Women's Center is located in Knowl- 
ton. It is an active and growing source of support 
for the area residents. The Northeast Educational 
Program conducts one-credit colloquia on sub- 
jects such as racism, sexism awareness training 
and a social issues program.

Up Among 
the Orchards 

Overlooking the entire campus from its loca- 
tion, the Orchard Hill Residential College 
consists of four modern living facilities. Each hall 
has seven floors with corridors on each floor 
branching off from the lobby/elevator area in the 
center of the floor. This area houses about 1300 
students and all the dormitories are co-educa- 
tional, but single-sex corridors are available. 

There are several things about Orchard Hill that 
separate it from the other four residential areas. 
Approximately 25, three-credit courses are of- 
fered within the area as a part of a First-Year 
Student Residential College Program. These con- 
sist of a special program of writing, language and 
social science subjects. All these courses are held 
in the residence halls. All of the Orchard Hill dor- 
mitories have a faculty member in residence and 
most of these professors teach the special pro- 
gram courses, which provides closer faculty-stu- 
dent interaction. 

One of the most important features of the area 
is the number of both formal and informal oppor- 
tunities to share cultural and artistic experiences. 
Throughout the year, coffee hours, spaghetti din- 
ners, house and area government, handicrafts, 
sports, panel discussions, concerts, poetry read- 
ings and other activities are enjoyed by the resi- 
dents. On the more casual side. Orchard Hill is 
also known for its midnight Bowl Wars and mud- 
sliding contests. 

In Webster, a person can find the Hilltop Health 
Club and a photography lab. The Martin Luther 
King Jr. Cultural Center is located in Dickinson. 
The Orchard Hill Government Offices, as well as a 
small snack bar with limited offerings, are located 
in Field. A ceramics room and computer terminals 
are located in Grayson.

A City Within 
A City 

A diverse group of inflividuals make up the 
Southwest Residential Area. This is the lar- 
gest residential area on campus, housing 5400 
students in its five towers and eleven low-rise 
buildings. This area is often referred to as "a city 
within a city" because of its size and all the activi- 
ties that take place there. 

Even though Southwest is set off from the rest 
of the campus, it has the largest social life on 
campus. No matter the size, the residents of each 
dorm feel close. 

This area offers a full program of social, cultur- 
al, and academic events. There are small educa- 
tional units in the residence halls, as well as larger 
educational, cultural, and student service centers 
such as the Southwest Women's Center, Malcolm 
X Center and the Center for Racial Studies. These 
centers offer colloquia in women's studies, black 
studies, men's issues, racial awareness and un- 
derstanding, theatre and arts, and community 

Southwest also offers a number of other ser- 
vices, most of which are located in the Hampden 
Student Center. These include a snack bar, a 
small variety store, computer terminals, craft 
shops, an information booth, study rooms, offices 
for the area government, and an auditorium used 
for concerts, plays, lectures, art shows and other 

Each spring. Southwest hosts Southwest Week, 
during which bands perform and students social- 
ize. Southwest's favorite place to hang out is the 
Pyramids. Students sit on the steps to read, eat, 
or just soak in the sun during warmer weather.

The Castle On

The newest residential area, Sylvan, which is 
just up the hill from Northeast, offers a 
uniquely styled living area. This area houses 1350 
students in its three buildings. Each residence hall 
contains 64 suites and each suite is either all- 
male or all-female. Each suite, occupied by six to 
eight students, with a mixture of double and sin- 
gle rooms, has its own living room/lounge area 
and a common bathroon. 

This area, from the outside, may seem quiet, 
but there are many activities that are offered that 
keep its social life busy. There is a student-run 
snackbar called the "Subway" located in the 
basement of McNamara. Many students escape 
to the relaxing atmosphere of the snackbar dur- 
ing their study breaks. There are the WSYL radio 
station and the WSYL-TV station, which features 
closed-circuit broadcasts to each suite in the 
area. Both the radio and TV stations are entirely 
staffed by students and are located in Cashin. 
This area also offered academic, cultural, and 
community programs with its colloquia program. 

On May 10, 1986, Brown House sponsored the 
Brown Olympics, during which house residents 
competed in such events as toothpaste frothing, 
pizza-box races, and more ordinary events like 
tug of war and volleyball. It is hoped that next 
year's Olympics will be expanded to consist of the 
residents of all the dormitories in Sylvan. Like 
many areas. Sylvan has Sylvan Day in the spring- 
time, complete with a cookout, bands, jugglers, 
and a dance on the tennis courts at night.

A Home-like 

Approximately 24 fraternities and sororities 
comprise the Greek living area at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. Each house exemplifies 
diversity in culture, attitude, and personality simi- 
lar to that of the student population. 

Fraternities and sororities offer members a va- 
riety of experiences for their growth and enjoy- 
ment. As well as developing individual potential 
within a house, Greeks participate in numerous 
campus events. Many are active members in stu- 
dent organizations, such as the Republican Club, 
WMUA, the Collegian, intramurals, and an array of 
other social and philanthropic groups. And 
though the majority of Greeks reside in houses 
located off campus, their voices are heard and 
recognized in the Student Senate. 

But servicing the University is not the only thing 
that makes a Greek special. Each year, individual 
chapters, as well as the Greek area as a whole, 
host a variety of fundraising events. In the past, 
chapters have paid visits to local nursing homes 
and have sponsored dance marathons for the 
Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Jimmy 
Fund. Last semester, the Greeks played a large 
role in the construction of an area playground. 

The most important aspect of Greek life, how- 
ever, is the tight bond of friendship that exists 
among the brothers of a fraternity and the sisters 
of a sorority. Becoming a Greek means joining a 
family. As a matter of fact, in some cases, a new 
member of a house is given a big brother or a big 
sister who guides him or her through their pledge 
period. These close relationships with brothers 
and sisters help to foster life-long friendships and 
honor and respect among chapters.

Probably the best part of off-campus life is 
ttie freedom to throw parties any time one 

Out There 
on Your Own 

After their freshman year, students are 
allowed, if they wish, to move off- 
campus into a house, apartment, barn, or 
other form of non-dormitory residence. 
Although the housing market in the Amherst 
area has become increasingly tight in recent 
years, with the aid of some connections and 
solid research, it is usually possible to find 
something. The Off-Campus Housing Office 
(OCHO) and local realtors are other means of 
locating homes that will break neither a 
student's budget nor a mother's heart. 

There are many options to choose from 
when moving off-campus. There are apartment 
complexes galore, from Northwood in 
Sunderland to Brittany Manor in South 
Amherst, and beyond. All over the 
Amherst/Northampton area there are entire 
houses for rent to groups of people, and 
■individuals also have the option of renting 
rooms in boarding houses or with private 

There are advantages and disadvantages to 
off-campus life. Granted, one does have to pay 
all the bills, on time every month; there arie 
sometimes roaches and other pests; and riding 
the bus every day can be a chore. On the 
other hand, one has the opportunity to choose 
and cook one's own meals; there is freedom 
from the rules and regulations of dormitory life, 
as well as the peace and quiet that are not 
often to be found in the dorms. Off-campus 
students also have their own area government 
and senators in the SGA, as well as access to 
the OCHO for information and counseling on 
such concerns as tenant's rights.

84" by Colette. 
To quote Oscar 
Wilde, "One 
should either be 
a work of art, or 
wear one," 
Colette qualified 
on both counts. 
Like a dancer or 
actor, Colette 
herself was her 
medium. Either 
executing a 
performance or a 
painting, Colette 
was always at 
the heart of her 
art work.

career as a

organizations as 
the Anti-

Kearns' art 
explores such 
issues as racism, 
sexism, and the 

decline of 
freedom. These 
conflicts were 
represented in 
his work RED 
NECK which 
called to mind 
the existance of 
poverty and 
rejection in a 
land of freedom.

two of the performances at 
the Concert Hall during the 
Fine Arts Center's tenth 

With live entertain- 
ment, hot air bal- 
loon rides, the dedication of 
an outdoor sculpture in the 
Campus Pond, and a birth- 
day cake in the shape of the 
building, the Fine Arts Cen- 
ter celebrated the start of 
another season of the arts. 
But, this was not just any 
year or celebration. The 
1984-85 season marked the 
FAC's 10th anniversary. 

Known as "The Sun Ma- 
chine," the structurally 
poured concrete and steel 
building provides the Univer- 
sity, Five College and Pio- 
neer Valley communities 
with appearances by inter- 
nationally-acclaimed visual 
and performing artists. Over 
the past 10 years, the FAC 
has presented Marcel Mar- 
ceau, the Alvin Alley Ameri- 
can Dance Theater, the Bos- 
ton Pops with Arthur 
Fiedler, the Boston Sympho- 
ny Orchestra and many 
Broadway shows. It also 
serves the community with 
lectures, demonstrations, 
workshops, masterclasses 
and children's programs, 
making it a major cultural 
resource of western Massa- 

Within the FAC are four 
halls. Many dance, music 
and theater performances 
are staged in the Concert 
Hall; the largest facility in 
the Center, it has a 2,000- 
seat capacity. Music recitals 
are held in the Bezanson Re- 
cital Mall, which is the site 
for some of the 100 on- 
campus concerts given by 
the University's faculty and 
performing ensembles. Dra- 
matic Productions can be 
seen at the Franklin Pierce 
Rand and Curtain theaters. 
The Rand houses the most 
up-to-date technical equip- 
ment available, while the 
smaller Curtain is used for 
the experimental plays and 
works. Bowker Auditorium, 
in Stockbridge Hall, re- 
opened this year and fea-

artists have access to a mu- 
sic studio, music library, art 
and dance studios and re- 
hearsal halls. The Center 
provides educational pro- 
grams and showcases exhib- 
its in the University Gallery. 

Various events were held 
in September to commemo- 
rate the FAC's anniversary. 
TEN represented the assem- 
bly of recent works by 25 
artists who, over the past 
10 years, have had one-per- 
son exhibits in the Universi- 
ty Gallery. The art ranged 
from major installation 
sculptures, created for the 
Gallery by such artists as 
Alice Aycock and Steven An- 
tonakos, to photography 
and paintings by William 
Wegman and Sam Gillian. 
The Gallery also dedicated 
the Isle of View. The perma- 
nent environmental sculp- 
ture, by George Trakas, is 
located at the south end of 
the Campus Pond and has 
two pedestrian bridges built 
on either side, which con- 
nects the island to the east 
and west banks and pro- 
motes viewer participation. 

Coinciding with the anni- 
versary, a Convocation on 
the Arts took place in April 
to acknowledge the accom- 
plishments and contribu- 
tions of American artists to 
society and education. Six 
individuals received honor- 
ary degrees from Univer^y 
President Dcivid D. Knapp, 
four of whom are alumni of 
the University: Bill Cosby 
(comedian and actor), 
Bruce MacCombie (compos- 
er and dean of the Juilliard 
School of Music), Bill Taylor 
(jazz pianists, composer 
and conductor) and Lois 6. 
Torf (art collector and, pa- 
tron). Graham Fund (archi- 
tect and art collector) and 
Frank Hodsoll (chairman of 
the National Endowment of 
for the Arts) were also bes- 
towed honorary degrees. 
For its tenth year, the FAC 
entertained audiences with 
national and international 
artists. The season began in 
September with "Noises 
Off" (a British comedy) 
and featured Balletop 
U.S.A., the Chines Magic Re- 
vue, Marian McPartland (a 

jazz pianist), the Jeffery II 
Dancers, the National The- 
ater of the Deaf and Mum- 
menschanz (Swiss mime- 
mask theater). The Broad- 
way music "42nd Street" 
brought the season to a 
close in May.

On March 10, 
1986 the Bill 
Cratty Dance Theatre 
performed at Bowker 
auditorium. As both 
performer and 
choreographer, Bill 
Cratty has won acclaim 
from the major dance 
centers of the three 
continents-from New

and Toronto to London, 
Paris, Cologne and Rio 
de Janeiro. Descended 
from a tradition 
establihed by Ted 
Shawn and developed 
by Jos'e Limfin, Daniel 
Nagrin and Murray 
Louis, Bill Cratty's 
intensely personal, 
athletic and masterful 
approach to movement 
has resulted in a body 
work which is 
dramatic, lyrical, and 
humorous, and always 
original and deeply 
compelling. The Bill

is a dynamic ensemble 
of artists who share 
his dedication and 
commitment to 
inspiring serious 
individual and social 
reflection through the 
art of dance.

Despite student apathy, the 
UMass Student Government 
Association has become a formi- 
dable representative voice for the 
student body in issues ranging 
from tuition hikes to world affairs. 

Formed in the 1960's, the SGA 
is comprised of three branches: 
the executive branch, the legisla- 
tive branch and the judiciary 

The executive branch, the 

president of the SGA, is elected 
popularly each spring to repre- 
sent the student body when deal- 
ing with the Board of Trustees, 
the faculty, the University admin- 
istration and the Amherst com- 
munity. It is this branch that 
serves as the major political voice 
of the student body. 

The Student Senate, the legisla- 
tive branch of the SGA, is com- 
posed of 130 seats, apportioned 

by living areas. Each semester, a 
least one senator is elected to re 
present his/her residence hall. 

Within the senate there is i 
speaker and a treasurer. The 
speaker presides over each meet 
ing and represents the senate ir 
the UMass community. The trea 
surer monitors the expenditure 
of the Student Activities Trus 

The Senate is composed o 
many committees, each responsi 
ble for the operation of the senate 
and the distribution of the SATI' 
money. The major committee: 
are: the Budgets, the Coordinat 
ing, Financial Policy and the Gov 
ernmental Affairs. 

The judiciary branch is aisc 
referred to as the Student Judi 
ciary. Cases involving the RSC 
system, the SGA and the Universi

134/Student Government Association 

The Campus Center/ Student 
Union Board of Governors 
was formed in 1971 by a joint act 
of the Undergraduate and Gra- 
duate Student Senates in order to 
establish an avenue for student 
input in the activities of the Mur- 
ray D. Lincoln Campus Center 
and Student Union Complex. 

With a budget of $15 million, 
the BOG'S purpose is to seek out, 
develop and represent to the 
CC/SU Management the varied 
interests and needs of those who 
lare served by the CC/SU Com- 
)plex and to w/ork to ensure an ap- 
)propriate balance of services, ac- 
tivities and revenue generation 
nwithin the facility. 

Like other organizations, the 
services that the Board of Gover- 
nors provides are multi-faceted. 
Comprised of 32 voting members 
and 11 coordinators, the BOG al- 
locates student office space with- 
in the Student Union Complex, 
monitors food prices within the 
various food service areas, and 
iiadministers the Concourse Vend- 
ing Program. According to mem- 

bers, "We work constantly with 
CC Administration in an effort to 
ensure that student needs are be- 
ing considered when policies and 
procedures are being formulated 
and implemented." 

Recently, the Board came un- 
der attack by the Vice Chancellor 
for Administration and Finance 
after he reportedly proposed that 
the Board's funding be totally 

eliminated as part of a financial 
reorganization within the depart- 
ment of Administration and Fi- 

Through a series of protests, 
negotiations and sit-ins, the 
Board "saved itself." Since then, 
the BOG has experienced prob- 
lems coping with the new man- 
agerial structure.

residents to enjoy the news and 
information provided free of

This dedication has been par- 
ticularly strong this past year as 
the Collegian purchased a com- 
puter system. While the system 
has increased efficiency, it has 
had its problems too. On occasion 
when the system has broken 
down, people have continued 
working to assure that the paper 
is circulated to the community. 
Collegian staff members have sur- 
vived car accidents while deliver- 
ing the paper to the printer or 
covering a story and they have 
ignored the fear of confronting a 
controversial or potentially libel- 
ous story. 

Founded in 1870 as Aggie Life 
at the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College, the Collegian was also 
called the Signal before taking its 
present name. The paper has 
grown since it became a daily in 
1968 and from the time it be- 
came a profit-making business in 
1981, breaking off from any out- 
side funding. 

The Collegian pay is low, if any, 
the rooms are out of the way in 
the Campus Center's basement. 

the work sometimes interferes 
with social life and grade point 
averages, but the committment 
and responsibility seem to be well 
worth the time. The Collegian is in 
fact a career builder, as its gradu- 
ates have gone on to prestigious 
and satisfying careers in many 
major organizations. But don't 
ask me, you can go to room 113 
Campus Center and see all this 
for yourself. And besides, it is late 
and I have to get back to writing 
this late-breaking story.

Nummo News is a weekly publi- 
cation that attempts to edu- 
cate University students about 
pressing Third World issues. 

Formed in 1975, during the 
heyday of political activism, 
Nummo News is a registered stu- 
dent organization that receives 
funding from the Student Activi- 
ties Trust Fund. This year was an 
especially trying year for the stu- 
dent-run organization as mis- 
management and major staff up- 
heavals plagued the paper. The 
problem has been eliminated and 
the paper is moving forward with 
the integrity it is known for. 

The publication is produced by 
University students and is distrib- 
uted with the Collegian. Nummo 
News, however, is a separate or- 
ganization and only relies on the 
Collegian ior distribution. Nummo 
News has a tri-fold purpose, pro- 
viding University students with 
national, international and five 
college area news.

rum for cultural and political is- 

Drum was self-run in the early 
1970's. Now, with the assistance 
of artist Nelson Stevens, it is con- 
nected to the Afro-American stud- 
ies department. 

The magazine's purpose is to 
disseminate information of a 
Third World oriented literary, so- 
cial and cultural nature to the 
I community at large, it also pro- 
vides a place for Third World stu- 

dents to express their creativit 
and to educate the white commi 
nity about the Third World. 

This year Drum's funding wa 
cut by the SGA. The Budget 
Committee stated that Drum wa 
part of an Afro-American studie 
class and, therefore, could not ret 
ceive SGA funding. 

Without adequate funding, thi' 
future of Drum is in jeopardy.

Spectrum is the Fine Art and 
Literary Magazine at the Uni- 
versity of IVIassachusetts. it is 
)ublished annually and distribut- 
ed at no charge. Spectrum is 
unded by the Student Activities 
rrust Fund, the UMass Arts Coun- 
cil and the Graduate Student Sen- 

Spectrum publishes student 
works of prose, poetry, photogra- 
phy, and art in B&W and color. 

Spectrum has a three-fold pur- 
pose: 1) to give students the op- 
portunity to work on all phases of 
production of the publication; 2) 
to provide any student with a fair 
chance of being published; and 3) 
to offer the entire university com- 
munity an occasion to share in 
the aspirations and accomplish- 
ments of its creative artists. 

Spectrum is wholly student-run 
and independent from the admin-, 
stration, but enjoys a close work- 
ing relationship with many mem- 
bers of the University community. 

Spectrum was founded in 1966, 
the first edition appearing in 


it did not simply pop up out of 
:nowhere; rather, Spectrum owes 
■its inception to the demise of the 
infamous Yahoo!, political humor 

Following the death of ^ con- 
students were outrageo ^ncf de- 
'manded a new magazine. Spec- 
'trum responded to its auspicious 
origin with daring content and a 
direct style. 

But student politics changed 
during the Seventies and so did 




Spectrum. Radical chic was re- 
placed by exclusive clique. Spec- 
trum the general interest maga- 
zine became Spectrum the Fine 
Art and Literary Magazine. Al- 
though the magazine was essen- 
tially de-politicized, its message 
was indirectly very political in 
terms of its homogeneity and ex- 
clusiveness, reflecting elitism, fa- 
voritism and departmentalism. 

As Spectrum became more and 
more effete, it became isolated 
from the student body, suffering 
yearly budget cuts until it was on 
the verge of collapse. It wasn't 
simply an issue of sound manage- 
ment, but a new direction from an 
often untenably ambitious format 
with unambitious content to a 
more conventional format with 
stronger content. 

The Spectrum of the Eighties 
has taken such a direction. 

We have built a strong staff by 
decentralizing decision-making 
from the editors to the entire 

staff which functions in small col- 
lective units. We have replaced 
the aesthetic homogeneity, in re- 
spect to form and content, with a 
diverse heterogeneity cohered by 
a theme; this past year's being 
"Art and Science." 

It may appear that Spectrum 
has merely returned to its Sixties 
origins, but the fact is that Spec- 
trum has grown beyond its na- 
scent and developmental forms, 
learning from its unruly childhood 
and its self-conscious adoles- 
cence. On the verge of its twenti- 
eth birthday, Spectrum has ma- 
tured into an openminded and 
highly-skilled member of the Uni- 
versity community, providing the 
much needed service of produc- 
ing a truly fine Fine Art and Liter- 
ary Magazine.

-John MacMillan 



The University has a system 
'■ by which all Registered Stu- 
dent Organizations are run. 


How do students fit into the 
University system? Stu- 
dents pay money to the SATF 
(Students Activities Trust Fund) 
totalling about two million dol- 
lars. This money is distributed 
amongst RSOs (Registered Stu- 
dent Organizations) and SCBs 
(Student Controlled Business). 
These are student-worker run 
co-operatives; some provide a 
service, some information, oth- 
ers revenue for the SATF. 


The University administration 
^ is where it all begins. The ad- 
ministration holds the money 
and provides the accounting 
system (computer link-up) for 
RSO/SCBs; runs the Campus 
Center (via the BOG) which 
leases space to RSO/SCBs year- 
ly; and provides regular adminis- 
trative staff for the Students Ac- 
tivities Office and Economic De- 
velopment Office. UMass hires 
the staff, but the students pay 
them from the SATF. 

Three offices link the 
RSO/SCBs to the University 
administration; the SGA (Stu- 
dent Government Association), 
the EDO (Economic Develop- 
ment office) and the SAO (Stu- 
dent Activities Office). 

What do these three offices 
SGA: -is a place to borrow mon- 
ey for new equipment pur- 

-is the owner of all capital 

-is the place to find the 
treasurer of all the RSOs 
-is run by students only 
-is the home of the Fi- 
nance and Budget Com- 
mittee which provides 
money to non-revenue 

EDO: -houses SCB mailboxes 
-is the link between SCBs 
-watches over SCBs' bud- 

-processes SCBs' pur- 
chase orders 
-provides accounting ser- 
vices and retains copies of 
all bookkeeping activity 
for SCBs 
-provides another "brain" 

for problems encountered 
by SCBs 

-is run by students and 
one hired professional. 

SAO: -is sometimes mistakenly 
called the RSO office be- 
cause it: 

-monitors all RSO activity 
-acts as a bank for RSOs 
-provides a professional 
business manager's assis- , 
tance j 

-okays purchase orders 
for RSOs I 

-is where signature power 
is obtained by RSO offi- 

-provides a computer ter- 
minal for RSOs to check 
account status at any time 
-provides help of any sort 
-keeps all accounting re- 
cords for RSOs 
-hands out paychecks for 

-all staff is hired profes-

The Big Picture/141 ' 


People's Market was formed in 
the early 1970's to provide 
the students, faculty and employ- 
ees of UMass with low cost, nutri- 
tious foods. The Market is a co- 
op; student run and governed. Ev- 
eryone involved with the co-op 
"pulls their own weight" in run- 
ning the most successful student- 
controlled business in RSO histo- 

This year People's reorganized 
and became more of a conve- 
nience store. It now provides cus- 
tomers with seven varieties of 

gourmet coffee (to go), frest 
baked goods, as well as frui 
veggies, snacks, juices, yogu[ 
cheese, ice cream, nuts and, 
course, bagels. 

In the future, the Market hop 
to someday feed the entire Ai 
herst community while mainta 
ing its service with a smile.

ip7 or those students who cringe 
'* at the sight of a greasy D.C. 
hamburger or a crowded, smoke- 
filled cafeteria, there is the small, 
yet inviting Earthfoods eating 

Earthfoods is a cooperative 
non-profit vegetarian restaurant 
formed ten years ago after a 
group of people in need of a clean 
and comfortable area to dine peti- 
itioned the SGA for the formation 
>of such a place. 

Since its opening, Earthfoods 
ihas experienced minor setbacks, 
ibut has persevered through them 
all to become one of the Universi- 
ty's fastest growing organiza- 
tions, serving several hundred 
students daily. 

In addition to filling empty 
stomachs, Earthfoods provides 



students with unique business ex- 
perience. Since it is a collective 
organization, there are no hierar- 
chical positions. Instead, each 
worker is responsible for com- 
pleting the daily functions of the 
restaurant, which include cook- 
ing, serving customers and scrub- 
bing dirty pots. 

Earthfoods also serves as an 
outlet where talented new artists 
and musicians can perform for a 
free meal. To many, the live sing- 
ing is a welcome relief from the 
hustle and bustle of the University

TT he Student Notes and Printing 
* Service is an organization run 
by 48 students skilled in the art of 
note taking or printing. Students, 
professors and academic depart- 
ments benefit from SNPS. The or- 
ganization sells notes for popular 
classes and provides quality, low- 
cost copying and offset printing of 
posters, booklets, table-tents, re- 
sumes, note books, reserve read- 
ing or anything students, profes- 
sors or RSO groups may need. 
SNPS was located in the center of 
Amherst until they became a Reg- 
istered Student Organization and 
eventually relocated to the Stu- 
dent Union. 

Notes provided are used as a 
supplement to students' notes.

The Legal Services Office was 
formed over a decade ago in 
response to a growing need for 
free legal advice to students 
whose college careers might oth- 
erwise be curtailed as legal prob- 
lems arise. 

The L.S.O. is an active student 
organization which prides itself on 
the unique relationship between 
its professional staff and its stu- 
dent clients, governing board, and 

According to staff members, 
the organization attempts to 
maintain a healthy balance be- 
tween the provision of profession- 
al services and the need for stu- 
dent involvement. 

To the student, the L.S.O. pro- 
vides: quality legal service, help- 
ing over 2,000 students each year 
with problems ranging from refer- 
ral to negotiations to the filing of 
major lawsuits; outreach and edu- 
cation to the UMass community 
by distributing pamphlets and 
newsletters about legal issues af- 

ffecting students; and opportuni- 

ities for students to gain valuable 
legal experience through intern- 

^ ships, decision-making and policy- 

; setting. 

For the future, the Legal Ser- 
vice Office looks forward to con- 

' tinued activity on the part of stu- 
dents and student groups, wheth- 
er in the area of landlord/tenant 
law, education law, or other case 
areas. Also, the L.S.O. will contin- 
ue to expand its outreach pro- 
gram to further educate students 

about their rights.

The Union Program Council, 
better known as UPC, is the 
nation's largest student-run con- 
cert promotion and production 
company. UPC is a non-profit or- 
ganization designed to enrich 
campus life by engaging popular 
musicians to appear in concert. 

R.E.M., Paul Young, General 
Public, and Elvis Costello are only 
a few of the names that UPC has 
brought to the University. With 
each new semester, UPC tries to 

f equal its impressive record of 

; past years. 

From the Fine Arts Center to 
the Campus Pond, a wide variety 
of venues insures a wide variety of 
acts. Last year, UPC and the Duke 
Ellington Committee promoted 
more than fifteen shows and have 
utilized at least seven on-campus 
Being entirely student-run, UPC 

' relies on the student population 
constantly for support, ideas and 
guidance. Any student is welcome 
to stop by the UPC offices at any 
time. From artists to engineers, 
journalists to business majors, 
and every field of study between, 
UPC offers an experience that 
can only prove helpful upon 
graduation. Many former staff 
members have gone on to ca- 
reers in the music industry. 

The organization has three 
elected positions: Production 
Manager; Talent Coordinator; and 
Business Manager. Putting on a 
successful show, however, re- 
quires the combined efforts of 
many dedicated people and sub- 
committees. The Advisory Com- 
mittee provides assistance to any 
University groups wishing to orga- 
nize an event, as well as working 
diligently during Spring Semester 
to put on dormitory area con- 
certs. The Duke Ellington Com- 

I mittee is a major subgroup which 

V works specifically to bring musical 

a acts appealing to the Third World 


The UPC is very proud of its 
impressive history and in future 

; years hopes to live up to its fine 
reputation in the concert produc- 

, tion community.

Have you ever found yourself 
walking to your dorm alone or 
leaving a friend's room late at 
night and walking from one end of 
campus to the other? With the 
condition of some paths on cam- 
pus; poorly-lit and isolated, and 
the high number of assaults and 
rapes on campus, these situa- 
tions can be scary if not danger- 
ous. The Escort Service can make 
the walk home safer. 

The Escort Service is a part of 
the Student Security Office. Es- 
corts by Student Security Office 
supervisors are provided every 
night (8:00pm-2:00am) of the 
.week, starting on moving-in day

and running until the end of finals. 
Besides providing on-campus es- 
corts, the SSO provides security 
in academic buildings and super- 
vision of student receptionists in 
the residence halls. 

It seems logical that SSO would 
provide escorts; however, when 
the service was first offered, it 
was part of the SGA. In exchange 
for a credit undergraduates would 
be escorts. Faced with organiza- 
tional problems, the project was 
handed over to the SSO, where it 

Typical of a new organization, 
the Escort Service had a slow 
start, but it has become very suc- 


cessful. Currently, the number of 
escorts per month is 250, up from 
30 when the service was first pro- 
vided. The Escort Service has 
been so successful that other 
schools have contacted SSO re- 
questing information on how to 
start their own service. 

The SSO hopes to educate 
more students about the dangers 
of walking on-campus alone at 
night and about the Escort Ser-

The rise and fall 

We who have been in college 
in the 1980's have seen a 
rapid rise in the New Right. Its 
ascendence to power is not only 
visible across the nation in such 
clear and unmistakable signs as 
the re-election of Jesse Helms, 
the politcal influence of the Moral 
Majority, and the policies of the 
Reagan administration, but the 
New Right has also appeared in 
the college community. That the 
New Right has risen to power is 
one thing, but for the New Right 
to rise to power in the very bas- 
"-.ion of liberalism is quite another. 

So the first proposition of this 
article — the rise of the New 
Right — is not too difficult to 
grasp; It is the second proposition 
— the fall of the New Right — 
which is debatable. For, it is my 
thesis that the New Right does 
not reflect a shift in popular atti- 
tudes towards conservatism, 
rather the ability of a minority of 
conservatives to dominate. Rath- 
er than focus on the big picture 
(as Ferguson and Rogers have 
done with their insightful article, 
"The Myth of America's Turn to 
the Right" in The Atlantic), this 
article is a review and analysis ot- 
the New Right on campus. 

The New Right overtly mani- 
fests itself on campus by forming 
conservative student groups, 
which then invite rightwing ex- 
tremists speakers, put out reac- 
tionary newspapers, and serve as 
a foothold for outside organiza- 
tions, such as Accuracy is Acade- 
mia, to instigate fear and intimi- 
dation on campus. This program 
parallels, if not extends from, the 
Sixties when similar attempts 
were made to apply conservative 
pressure from outside on the in- 
ternal affairs of the university. 

It was about five years ago 
when the first right wing groups 
were formed at UMass, the Con- 
servative Student Committee and 
the UMass College Republicans, 
started by Jeff Kelley. Despite 
claims by Kelley that his group in- 
dicated a move to the right on 
campus, the UMass College Re- 
publican had only twelve mem- 
bers at its peak and eventually 
folded. It was, however, these 
students who gave rise to the self- 

Murray EX \ 
Campus < 

called "Republican" movement 
on campus (which is a misleading 
title since they are in no way con- 
nected to the Republican Party), 
their rallying cry, "We're fed up 
with the radical presence on cam- 

This is an important point in 
considering the New Right's pres- 
ence on campus, since, from its 
very origination, this open hostil- 
ity to progressive ideas and the 
people who think them has been 
intrinsic to the New Right's role. 
Why this is tolerated by the uni- 
versity is probably due to the be- 
lief in ideological pluralism at the 
university, but it also can be ex- 
plained by the old saying: "The 
best defense is a good offense." 
For offensive is the best way to 
describe the political posturing of 
the New Right. 

Probably no one individual 
more personified this than the 
Collegian columnist Stephen Bar- 
ret. Barret blast away from his 
garret at the Collegian until he 
was finally terminated for submit- 
ting articles as a student after he 
had already graduated. An older 
man with a clear writing style, no 
one and nothing was above Bar- 
ret's barb, especially campus 

It was in the shadow of these 
first crusaders that the New Right 
emerged as a real-presence, at 

UMass: The Conservative Coali- 
tion, the Thomas Jefferson Soci- 
ety, Students for Participatory 
Democracy, the Committee to 
Protect Freedom of Speech and 
Academic Freedom, and, last but 
not least, the UMass Republican 
Club (again no affiliation with the 
Republican Party). Don't let the 
different names fool you, with a 
few exceptions from group to 
group, this is really one group of 
people. And, although they claim 
to represent hundreds of stu- 
dents, they rarely have meetings 
when more than ten or twenty at- 
tend, and, when they have rallies 
where more than a hundred peo- 
ple show, it is usually the number 
of protesters that creates the 

But, of course, to have a funda- 
mentally cohesive core is their 
source of strength. The right is far 
more unified than the left, and, 
when it flexes its muscle, it typi- 
cally has an agreed upon strate- 
gy. It is these strategies that are 
the real power behind the New 
Right, and there are a number o* 
distinct forms that they take. 

First there is the use of the edi- 
torial pages of the Collegian. Bar- 
ret has had his proteges: Peter 
Dow, Stephen Erickson, Neil 
McCabe, Rusty Denton, Eric 
Erickson, etc., many of those 
members of the UMass Republi- 

154/The New Right 

of the New Right 

can Club. Beyond a predictable 
far right slant to their editorial 
views, such as justification of U.S. 
support of South Africa and the 
Contras, as well as constant at- 
tacks upon the Soviet Union, 
there is, in these very same arti- 
cles, an outright criticism of liber- 
als and progressives alike, indivi- 
duals and groups. These attacks 
often take the form of red-baiting, 
pronouncing anyone with a differ- 
ing view of work to be "commu- 
nist," while upholding themselves 
as "patriots," as if patriotism was 
only defined in the narrow terms 
of their view of the world. Finally, 
there is the perennial claim that a 
small group of radicals are hold- 
ing the student body and the uni- 
versity hostage. 

This then leads to the second 
strategy, their strongest and 
most successful tactic. For the 
conservatives must have learned 
well from their so-called radical 
predecessors, since a small pack 
have gained positions of power in 
student government. Conserva- 
tives have effectively put a stran- 
glehold on free government by 
promulgating themselves into the 
key position of authority. For ex- 
ample, for the past four years, the 
chairs (and many of the mem- 
bers) of the Budget Committee, 
the most powerful committee in 
the S.G.A. since it distributes 
S.A.T.F. money to student groups 
on a supposedly non-political ba- 
sis, were all staff members of the 
first edition of The Minuteman. 
But it is not only by authority that 
the conservatives exert their con- 
trol, but also be their behavior on 
the senate floor where either 
I through the excessive use of par- 
liamentary procedure, e.g., 
"point of order . . . point of clarifi- 
cation," or simply screaming ob- 
•scenities, they know how to dis- 
rupt the meeting. 

The next strategy is the spon- 
soring of the reactionary speak- 
ers on campus. This is supposedly 
done to let all sides be heard, but 
there is another purpose to it and 
'that is to create an unruly atmo- 
sphere fostering dissent and then 
to blame it on the dissenters. Two 
years ago, a Nicaraguan exile was 

invited to speak. About sixty dem- 
onstrators staged a mock battle 
and disrupted the event. This 
year the organizers replayed the 
game but this time with bigger 
stakes. The North American press 
representative for the Contras 
was invited. The audience of more 
than five hundred people, mostly 
protesters was taunted to the 
point of provocation. Members of 
the New Right were employed as 
security and were actually in- 
volved with physical confronta- 
tions with other students. Insult 
was added to injury by the con- 
servative accounts of the event 
which likened the anti-contra stu- 
dents to communists and blamed 
them for the mayhem. 

These same right wing students 
who profess to "protect freedom 
of speech and academic free- 
dom" can always be found cat- 
calling and heckling at rallies and 
marches or other persuasions. As 
if this hypocrisy was not blatant 
enough, what is even more shock- 
ing is their self-righteous, self-pro- 
claimed role as vigilantes. Why 
should a band of right wing youth 
say they defend our freedom 
when they are in the greatest 
threat to it? 

Perhaps, this is not unique to 
them, but it moreover the mind- 
set of the New Right, as the arri- 
val on campus of the national 
watch-dog organization Accuracy 
in Acadenia demonstrates. Their 
strategy is for students to infil- 
trate the classes of politically left 
professors and record what they 
say. These "records" are then 
sent to the national headquarters 
and are distributed nationwide. 
But are these campus thought po- 
lice really accurate and what right 
do they have to be subverting the 
classroom? There anwer is that it 
is the professors who are the sub- 
versives: communist dupes cor- 
rupting American Youth. 

But the infamous A. I. A. is not 
the only national organization ex- 
erting influence on the college 
community from afar: There are 
dozens of conservative organiza- 
tions who are willing to spend lots 
of money on campus for ideologi- 
cal purposes. Two groups that 

have directly come to bear on 
UMass are the Institute of Educa- 
tional Affairs and Industrial Educa- 
tion Foundation who gave several 
thousand dollars to start up the 
right wing newspaper The Minute- 

But, finally it is not simply the 
namable acts which should con- 
vince us about the true nature of 
the New Right — the charges of 
election fraud, the open attack on 
Third World groups and Scera, 
the motions to censure in the sen- 
ate, the misrepresentation of 

MASSPIRG — but all of the 
anonymous acts of right-wingers 
— the bomb threats, the harass- 
ing phonecalls, the racist and sex- 
ist grafitti, the vandalism of politi- 
cal artwork, the insults and slurs 
in the hallways — which reveal 
the character of the movement. 
And it is precisely this which leads 
me to why I predict the fall of the 
New Right. For every time the 
New Right rears its ugly head, 
from Joe McCarthy to Richard 
Nixon, from the KKK to the Moral 
Majority, it is not the left which 
squashes it, but the moderate 
American who cannot tolerate 
the New Right's bigotry, discrimi- 
nation, and oppression. For with 
every act of injustice, we become 
wiser about wrongdoing. For the 
New Right is its own worse enemy 
and its own undoing: it is they 
who will defeat themselves, both 
on campus, and nationally.

T he Massachusetts Public In- 
* terest Group was organized in 
1972 by students who voted to 
form a MassPIRG chapter at 
UMass Amherst. The organization 
gives students the opportunity to 
work outside the classroom ei- 
ther as a volunteer or for course 
credit. Students involved have an 
impact on issues that affect them 
such as environmental and con- 
sumer concerns. MassPIRG is a 
non-partisan, non-profit, student- 

directed organization based on 26 
college campuses in Massachu- 

Increasing public awareness 
and education on environmental 
and consumer issues is only one 
service provided by MassPIRG. Its 
75 members also work to repre- 
sent the public's interest in the 
legislature, offer course credit 
through which students gain skills 
in lobbying, research, writing, 
public relations and public speak- 


MassPIRG is governed by a stu- 
dent board of directors elected 
from each of the 26 chapters. The 
board decides on agenda, allo- 
cates the budget and hires a staff 
of professionals who work with 
the students. 

During the year MassPIRG has 
worked to qualify four questions 
for the 1986 state ballot and is 
responsible for the passage of 
nine major pieces of legislation. 
These include acid rain laws and a 
pollution penalties bill. In April the 
UMass chapter won the support 
of 83% of the students to keep 
MassPIRG on campus. 

The organization is trying to 
form a coalition to run a voter 
registration drive on campus, in- 
crease public awareness of the 
November '86 Initiative Cam- 
paign, win passage of the hazard- 
ous waste clean-up bill, and con- 
tinue to fight local hunger.

With an active membership 
of approximately 140, the 
Radical Student Union is an orga- 
nization which provides progres- 
sive students with the opportuni- 
ty to take an active role in shaping 
the future. The R.S.U. exists as a 
common ground for people who 
see deep problems and inequities 
in our society and who have a vi- 
sion of a better tomorrow. 

Formed in the 1970's as the 
Revolutionary Student Brigade, 
the R.S.U. operates as a collec- 
tive organization with no hierar- 
chical positions. Instead, alt deci- 
sions are reached by consensus. 
Also, the R.S.U. provides a forum 
where all progressive students 
can meet and discuss pressing 
world issues. 

In regard to student activities, 
the Radical Student Union orga- 
nizes educational events, such as 
films, speakers, teach-ins, and po- 
litical demonstrations and rallies. 
In addition, the R.S.U. has a large 
resource library open to all, which 
houses a variety of progressive 

In recent years, the R.S.U. has 
become actively involved in the 
successful movement to force 
UMass to divest from companies 
doing business in South Africa. 
Among other things, the R.S.U. 
has played a large role in creating 
an alternative monthly paper 
called Critical Times. 

In the future, the Radical Stu- 
dent Union will continue to active- 
ly express alternative political 
views through internal study 
groups, community education, 
and political action.

Everywoman's Center was 
formed in 1972 by women at 
the University and in tine commu- 
nity. The center was founded to 
create a comfortable, multi-cul- 
tural space in which women could 
work for social change and net- 
work with other women. Pro- 
grams offered by the Everywo- 
man's Center include resource 
and referral, counseling, working 
women's program, public rela- 
tions and outreach, women's ad- 
mission and general educational 
support, Third World Women's 
Program and Third World Advo- 
cate, and against-violence pro- 
grams. Members of the Everywo- 
men Center also publish 
news letters and annual reports. 
The Everywomen's Center is a 
multi-service center open to all 
women, but is especially dedi- 
cated to meeting the needs of un- 
derserved, older, disabled, low-in- 
come and minority women. A 24- 
hour hot-line is available to coun- 
sel victims of sexual assault. 

Office space was a serious 
problem for the Everywomen's 
Center until a decision was made 
to move several programs to the 
Nelson House this spring. 

The Everywomen's Center 
hopes to provide quality services 
to women despite foreseen feder- 
al budget cuts. Increasing the size 
of the professional staff is also a 
goal for the future.

The development of the Peace-

Vietnam War student movement 
at UMass in the late 1960's. To- 
day, a major concern of the orga- 
nization's 100 members is the nu- 
clear arms race. 

The Peacemakers provide edu- 
cational films, lecturers on peace 
issues, draft counseling, an op- 
portunity for students to gain ex- 
perience in peace work, and train- 
ing in non-violent actions in the 
struggle for peace.

dents who often join forces with

and surrounding schools to pro- 
mote peace. 

For the future, the group hopes 
to continue to grow in size and 
ability to serve the community. A 
long-term goal of the Peacemak- 
ers is to make UMass a model uni-

In the fall of 1981, a special 
group of people formed the 
Dyslexic Student Organization in 
hopes of lending needed support 
to dyslexic students on campus. 
Since that day, this registered 
student organization has become 
one of the most successful groups 
at the University. As a matter of 
fact, the success of the D.S.O. 
has been so great that universi-

Dyslexia is a reading disorder 
from which victims may exper- 
ience problems with number se- 
quence, spelling or syntax, or 
word reversals. Approximately 
1,500 UMass students suffer from 
this impairment. 

The D.S.O. encourages stu- 
dents to accept their disability by 
offering tutoring services, coun- 
seling facilities and prescribed 
courses of study in communica- 
tion areas that will later develop 
compensatory skills. 

In addition, the Dyslexic Stu- 
dent Organization strives to pro- 
vide dyslexic students with peer 
support services and educational 
workshops. By increasing public 
awareness and dissemminating 
information, the agency hopes to 
help dyslexics and examine the 
many learning disorders associat- 
ed with the disorder.

The Kappa Omicron chapter of 
Alpha Phi Omega consists of 
eight brothers and six pledges. 
Their purpose is to assemble col- 
ege students in a national service 
fraternity to develop leadership 
ability, promote friendship and 
provide service to humanity. In 
1952 the chapter was formed be- 
cause of a need for a service 
group on campus. 

Services provided by APO in-

;that need help. Examples include 
iundralsing, helping with Red 
Cross blood drives and various 
other service projects. APO is 
also affiliated with the Boy Scouts 
of America. 

Although APO is a fraternity it

The Hang-gliding Club was

safe and inexpensive entre4 into 
the exhilarating sport of hang- 

The organization serves any 
UMass student who has ever 
fantasized about flying. The club 
has members on all levels of pro- 
ficiency. More advanced pilots 
serve as support and informa- 
tion resources for beginners. 

The club provides lessons for 
beginners to learn how to fly. 
The fee for the lessons this year 
was $70.00. Club dues were 
$10.00. Despite dues and lesson 
fees, the club was still insuffi- 
ciently funded. 

This year, the club participat- 
ed in a "fly-in" at Morningside 
Park, competing with schools 
from all over the East Coast.

The UMass Sport Parachute 
Club was founded on October 
1st, 1985. The club encourages 
interest, connpetition and fun in 
parachuting while providing the 
safest training (FAA regulated) at 
the lowest possible cost. 

What makes skydiving and 
sport parachuting different? The 
people. "Skydivers are people 
who care about people who care 
about living life to the fullest with 
other people." 

"High technology" and "state 
of the art" have been key words 
for the club this past year. The 
club has acquired all new par- 
achuting equipment. One instruc- 
■tor (A UMass alumni) comment- 



OFFICERS^ Ps.e^^P^^'^; 







ed, "The students have better 
gear than I do. There is no more 
advanced, safer gear anywhere in 
the world." 

The goals of the club have re- 
mained constant for 30 years. 
They are: to provide the best and 
safest in parachute gear and 
training; to make parachuting af- 
fordable; and to promote compe- 
tition in parachuting. 

The club has a "student schol- 
arship program which offers 
members a limited amount of free 
training if they advance in the 
sport. This year was especially tri- 
umphant for the club as they sent 
several members to the national 
collegiate skydiving champion-

They rehearse for one hour and 
twenty minutes every day, Mon-

Alive and kicking 

The 1985 football season will go 
down in the record books as the year 
UMass turned it around. The Minute- 
men had their best record since 1980, 
took second place in the Yankee Con- 
ference and built a nationally ranked 
defense that allowed only 11.8 points- 
per-game. Nonetheless, the real story 
behind the UMass football team this 
year was freshman quarterback Dave 
Palazzi. With Palazzi at the helm, the 
Minutemen achieved a record of six 
wins and two losses. 

For the first game of the season, the 
Minutemen were pitted against Morgan 
State. Before an opening day crowd of 
11,918, at Warren McGuirk Alumni Sta- 
dium, UMass pounded Morgan State, 
38-9, with Palazzi completing nine 
passes out of 19 attempts for a total 81 
yards and scoring three touchdowns. 

Also, during the same game, defensive 
back Duckworth Grange scored a 51 
yard TD interception, while tailback 
George Barnwell carried the ball 15 
times for 80 yards. 

A respectable showing against Rich- 
mond the following week was a sign of 
better things to come as the Minute- 
men defense allowed the high scoring 
Spiders only 19 points in the loss. The 
team's next game against Holy Cross 
was a typical "good news-bad news" 
scenario. The good news was that 
UMass won the game, 27-3. The 
game's star, freshman linebacker John 
McKeown, recovered two fumbles that 
ultimately led to 10 Minutemen points. 
The rest of the Minutemen defense 
was superb as it held the Crusader's 
offense to just 60 yards rushing. The 
bad news was that quarterback Dave

Cross. The scoreboard in the background tells 
its own story.

game against URI. 


Palazzi suffered a second degree se- 
peration of his left shoulder, after com- 
pleting a 13 yard touchdown pass to 
flankerback John Crowley. 

The Minutemen's next three games 
were low scoring contests of which 
UMass won only one, a 10-7 decision 
against Northeastern. While the injured 
Palazzi was recovering, back-up quar- 
terbacks Jim Simeone and Bob William- 
son shared the duties with mild suc- 
cess. Nonetheless, the Minutemen's 
defensive unit was still going strong, 
allowing their opponents only 24 points 
in those three games. 

The seventh game of the season saw 
UMass defeat Maine 20-7 as Dave Pa- 
lazzi bounced back into the line-up with 
two touchdown passes. Next, came a 
heartstopping 17-14 victory over Bos- 
ton University. With a surprisingly easy 
21-7 win over UConn, the stage was set 
for what would be one of the most ex- 
citing football games of the season. Un- 
fortunately, the Minutemen came out 
on the short end of the score. The Blue 
Hens of Delaware defeated the Mi^nute- 
men 27-24 as a field goal try by UMass 
was blocked. The loss offset a 28 yard 
TD interception by senior noseguard 
Mike Dwyer. Nonetheless, the 10,000 
fans who attended that game at 
McGuirk Stadium would not soon for- 
get it. 

A season-ending victory, the follow- 
ing week, over New Hampshire was a 
morale booster for a memorable sea- 
son. It saw the Minutemen put eight 
players on the all-conference squad 
and one in which Dave Palazzi was 
named rookie-of-the-year in the Yan- 
kee Conference. As this is still a rela- 
tively young team, it appears as though 
football is alive and kicking again at the 
University of Massachusetts.

Tenth in the nation 

"My goal is to take them as far as 
they can go," coach Pam Hixon stated 
before field hockey began this season. 
In the seven years Hixon has been 
coaching, six of her teams have made 
it to the national tournament. This year 
Hixon guided UMass to 10th place in 
the nation. 

The Minutewomen had a strong 
team consisting of three top scorers 
returning from last season, a high scor- 
ing transfer, and seven talented fresh- 
men. Senior defensemen Megan Don- 
nelly was a member of the US national 
team and was named to the national 
field hockey All-American team for the 
fourth straight season. Junior Lisa 
Griswold was named to the second 
team by the coaches association. Lynn 
Carlson and Kathy Rowe were both 
members of the Junior Olympics. Oth- 
er key players from last season were 
sophomore leading scorer Tania Ken- 
nedy, junior midfielder Chris Kocot, 

senior midfielder Judy Morgan, and ju- 
nior forward Erin Caniff. 

The freshmen brought new life and 
enthusiasm to the team. Hixon said 
"The freshmen sparked us, picked us 
up. They made everyone else go and 
forced the more experienced players 
to assume their proper leadership 
roles." These players include sweeper 
Colleen Reilly, defensive backs Pam 
Bustin and Julie Stuart, and forwards 
Kathy DeAngelis and Ruth Vasapollis. 
The five freshmen and first-year defen- 
sive back Chris Gutheil greatly influ- 
enced the team and brought new en- 

The UMass field hockey team started 
the season by defeating Virginia, 2-1. 
The first game showed the Minutewo- 
men to have a very speedy offense de- 
spite the brutal heat. The team re- 
mained undefeated after playing Pacif- 
ic University and Boston College until 
they lost to the Iowa Hawkeyes, 2-0. 

Hixon and her team then bounded- 
back to beat Providence College 3-0. 
The winning streak did not return, how- 
ever, due to a 2-1 upset by Springfield 
in overtime. Defeating Yale 4-0 helped 
UMass out of their slump. They then 
went on to beat Maine and tie North- 
eastern. UMass also won against Old 
Dominion and Harvard, tied New 
Hampshire, defeated Dartmouth, but 
fell to the number one Connecticut 
team. The Minutewomen then went on 
to defeat Michigan and Purdue, making 
the team 13-4-2. 

At this time, 10th ranked UMass was 
looking forward to the final four. Their 
hopes were shattered when they lost 
the first round tournament to 9th 
ranked Boston University 1-0. 

Although BU ended the season for 
UMass they remained 10th in the na- 
tion. The team will be losing seniors 
Donnelly, Rowe, and Morgan, who 
were important players this season.

A perfect 10 — at home 

With a 15-6 overall record and a per- 
fect 10-0 home record, Coach Jeff 
Getler's Minutemen finished their most 
successful season ever. Their fifteen 
victories destroyed the previous re- 
cord of eleven wins, and their nine shu- 
touts set another UMass record. 

The season began with the loss of 
two All New England players, Kurt 
Manal, 1984's leading scorer, and Paul 
Serafino. Andy Bing, a sophomore mid- 
fielder, took over Manal's position as 
leading scorer with a season total of 10 
goals and 8 assists for a total of 28 

points. He was followed by forwards 
F.J. Zwicklbauer(5-10-20), Tom Gior- 
dano(5-5-15), and Ferdie Adobe(3-8- 

UMass out-scored their opponents 
26-3 at home and only once gave up 
more than two goals in a single game. 
They added to these accomplishments 
by never losing two games in a row the 
entire season. 

Coach Getler pushed his team to- 
wards an NCAA tournament berth all 
season and in the process the team 
managed to get its second national 

ranking in their history. The team was 
ranked 18th nationally early in the sea- 
son and was also ranked third in New 

History was also made when the Min- 
utemen won the UMass Invitationals. 
Matt Gushing was named MVP of this 
tournament and Andy Bing, Nick Mar- 
ciano, and Tom Giordano were named 
to the All Tournament team. 

Goalkeeping duties were split this 
season by two players, Don Donahue 
and freshman Sam Ginsburg. Donahue 
finished the season with a 7-5 record.

comer Ginsburg finished with an im- 
pressive record of 8-1, with seven 
goals against for a .74 average, 52 
saves and 5 shutouts. 

A loss late in the season to UMaine at 

Orono ruined the team's chance at an 

NCAA tournament berth, but the men

And this year makes three 

"Number One" is the only way to 
describe Coach Kalakeni Banda's 
women's soccer team. This young 
team made it to the NCAA Final Four 
for the third year in a row and was 
ranked number one nationally most of 
the season. The starting team was 
composed of four freshmen, five soph- 
omores and the only two seniors on 
the team, Sue Bird and Jamie Watson. 
The Minutewomen had an undefeat- 
ed 15-0 regular season record and an 
impressive 16-1 overall record. They 
outscored their opponents 68 to 2 in 
regular season play, averaging 16.9 
shots per game while their opponents 
averaged two. Starting goalie, fresh- 
man Jan Holland gave up only one goal 
in regular season play for a .10 goals 
against average. Banda had nine play- 
ers scoring in double figures including 
team lead scorer Beth Roundtree (10- 
4-24), Monica Seta (9-6-24), Carolyn 
Micheel (5-13-23), Cathy Cassady (7- 
8-22), Cathy Spence (9-4-22) and Ail- 
American Kristen Bowsher (7-6-20). 
Fullback Debbie Belkin broke a UMass 
record by scoring 19 points (7-4), 
which is the most ever scored from 
that position. Forward Carolyn Micheel 
ended her season with 13 assists, 
breaking the UMass record for assists 
in a single season. 

The women played Boston College in 
the NCAA quarter finals, outplaying 
them to a 3-0 victory in the first snow- 
fall of the year. This landed them a spot 
in the NCAA Final Four Tournament 
held at George Mason Soccer Stadium 
in Fairfax, VA. UMass entered the tour- 
nament at top seed and was stopped in 
the semi-finals. George Mason College 
(17-2-1) handed the Minutewomen a 
crushing 3-0 loss ending an almost per- 
fect season for the squad. 

The team was recognized for its 
many accomplishments this season by 
such prestigous institutions as the Bos- 
ton Globe, the Boston Herald, Channel 
4 TV in Boston, and Soccer America. 
Coach Banda was named Coach of the 
year by the National Soccer Coaches 
Association of America for doing a tre- 
mendous coaching job this season and 
in seasons past. And there's more. Six 
of the Minutewomen were named to 
the All New England first team. These 
talented players were sophomore full- 
backs Debbie Belkin and Chris Schmitt, 
sophomore midfielders Kristen 
Bowsher and Carolyn Micheel, fresh- 
man forward Beth Roundtree and 
sophomore forward Cathy Spence. 
The New England Womens Intercolle- 
giate Soccer Association also named 
three of the UMass women to its All 

New England Second Team; senior full- 
back Sue Bird, freshman goalie Jan 
Holland and freshman forward Cathy 

There is just no stopping Coach Ban- 
da and his crew. They have exper- 

ienced a successful season once again. 
For the two graduating seniors, it will 
definitely be another year to remem-

First time champions 

"This season I've got sixteen players 
I can honestly say are good players, 
and I can only keep twelve. It's a tough 
decision, but there are worse decisions 
to make." This statement was made by 
seven-year coach Elaine Sortino in 
September. Sortino made these deci- 
sions and led her team to the East 
Coast Athletic Conference. The Spikers 
ended their regular season with a 34-7 
mark, their best regular season finish 

Players returning to the volleyball 
team this season were senior outside 
hitters Sally Maher and Ann Ringrose. 
Also returning were defender Debbie 
Cole and middle blockers Marcy Guilio- 
tis and Sarah Ryan, and Cheryl Alves. 
Three freshmen, Juliette Primer, 
Cathy Lis, and Julie Smith as well as 
Violetta Gladkowska, a transfer from 
MCC, played this season. These play- 
ers constituted a relatively tall team, 
which is a strength during matches. 

The Spikers opened their 1985-86 
season by beating American Interna- 
tional College in a three game sweep. 
The team remained undefeated until a 
battle with New Haven ended the win- 
ning streak at 15. At this time the Min- 
utewomen were ranked 14th. Until this 
point UMass had defeated the Univer- 
sity of Vermont, Smith, Keene State, 
University of Hartford, University of 
New Haven, Central Connecticut State 

University, Northeastern University, 
Lehigh University, Holy Cross, and 
Mount Holyoke. The team rebounded 
from their loss and placed second at 
the South Connecticut tournament. 
UMass lost to the University of New 
Haven in the championship match but 
defeated such schools as the Universi- 
ty of Lowell, Yale, Pace, and Rhode Is- 
land College. 

The chances of the team making the 
Division II national tournament at this 
time were slim. The Spikers would have 
to win their remaining matches. Al- 
though the season began with a 15 
game winning streak, the teams ahead 
were a greater challenge to the Min- 
utewomen. Sortino's spikers went on 
to overpower Southern Connecticut 
State to give UMass a record of 29-6. 

For the first time in the team's histo- 
ry the Minutewomen captured the 
state championship in the Massachu- 
setts Association of Intercollegiate Ath- 
letics for Women. They defeated 
Wellesley College in the semifinals and 
MIT in the finals. The Minutewomen 
then finished second in the Northeas- 
tern volleyball classic, losing to North- 
eastern in the finals. UMass hosted the 
ECAC finals, but fell to Northeastern 
University in five games. 

UMass has always been a strong 
serving team and this season showed 
such strengths as accurate passing and 

affective blocking. Next season looks 
hopeful for the team with the devel- 
oped skills of this season's freshmen.

Breaking all barriers 

Nineteen eighty-five was the year 
that the University of Massachusetts 
sports progrann finally came of age. 

In the five major fall sports (football, 
field hockey, men's and women's soc- 
cer, and volleyball) UMass teams 
sported a combined record of 87-29-2, 
proving that 1985 was indeed the best 
overall fall semester season this school 
has ever had. Even more impressive 
was the fact that UMass teams were 
virtually invincible on their home turf. 
The men's and women's soccer teams, 
for example, went undefeated every 
time they took to the field at Boyden. 

A major reason for this sudden suc- 
cess has been the athletic depart- 
ments commitment to fielding teams 
that are not just competitive, but good. 
Rising above the previous attitude of 
"what a great game, too bad we lost" 
are a crop of young and talented play- 
ers backed by experienced coaches 
who are committed to acquiring noth- 
ing but the best. 

All five of the major fall teams re- 
ceived increases in scholarship funds 
to be used for recruiting from the high 
school ranks. The football team re- 
ceived the highest portion of the pick 
by increasing their budget to the limit 
of NCAA scholarships. 

The biggest surprise of the season 
came from the football team. After two 

straight 3-8 seasons, the Minutemen 
ended this year with a 7-4 record, plac- 
ing them second in the Yankee Confer- 
ence and giving them a renewed re- 
spect in the eyes of their opponents. 
The blend of veterans seeking their last 
shot at glory and talented freshmen 
coming on to the scene proved to be 
an immensely effective combination. 

The UMass volleyball team was one 
of three fall teams that made it to an 
NCAA tournament. After winning over 
30 games and the UMass Invitationals 
it is little wonder why the Spikers are 
moving up from Division 2 to Division 1 
next season. 

The field hockey team made it to the 
NCAA tournament for the second con- 
secutive year, finishing with a record of 
13-5-2. Had it not been for a poor draw 
in the New England regional tourna- 
ment, bigger things may have been in 
the offering for the stickers. Nonethe- 
less, the team definitely deserves a 
round of applause for a job well-done. 

Despite the absence of two all-New 
England players due to injury and aca- 
demics, the men's soccer team had 
their most successful season on record 
with a 15-6 mark. Though the Minute- 
men were not invited to a tournament, 
this years edition of the UMass men's 
soccer team had nothing to be sorry 
for. Just the fact that there was talk of 

a tournament bid in November was a 
small miracle in itself. 

Without a doubt, the best fall team 
UMass had to offer this past season 
was the women's soccer team. What 
more can be said when a team ad- 
vances to the "Final Four" in the NCAA 
tournament for the third consecutive 
year and finishes with a record of 16-1- 
0? During the regular season, the Min- 
utewomen allowed only two goals and 
set a new record for seasonal winning 
percentage. The only goal for this out- 
standing soccer team now is to win the 
tournament. With nine of the eleven 
starters returning, it just might be done 
next year. 

Not to be forgotten for their accom- 
plishments this past fall are the UMass 
cross-country teams that were ranked 
in the top five in New England. The fail 
women's tennis team was very com- 
petitive as well, posting an 8-5 record. 

In summary, fall 1985 is going to be a 
season that UMass athletics shall not 
soon forget. Only one word could sum 
up this fall's edition of UMass sports;

Fall Success/ 195 

Plenty of potential 

This was Ron Gerlufsen's third year 
as coach of the UlVlass men's basket- 
ball team. A challenge for Gerlufsen 
this season was molding eight new 
players into a winning UMass team. 
The unusually young team consists of 
one senior, two juniors, three sopho- 
mores, and six freshmen. They finished 
the season with a 9-19 record. For this 
team the ability was there but the ex- 
perience was lacking. The Minutemen 
will be the team to match next season. 

The experienced players on the 
team include captain Carl Smith, a 5- 
1 1 point guard, 6-10 center Tom Emer- 
son, 6-7 forward Wilbert Hicks, 6-5 
swingman Matt Ryan, 6-3 point guard 
Jackie Sheehan and 6-3 guard Bill 
Hampton. The other team members in- 
clude newcomers 6-6 Duane Chase, 6- 
4 David Brown, 6-6 Joe Fennel!, 6-6 
Ben Jones, 6-9 John Milum, 6-7 Sean 
Mosby, 5-10 Mike Mundy, and 6-8 Fitz- 
hugh Tarry. These new players have 
been called one of the best recruiting 
classes ever to enter UMass. 

The Minutemen were anxious to play 
in the newly renovated Curry Hicks 
Cage this season. Only three of the 
teams' members had played in the 
Cage before; Smith, Emerson, and 
Sheehan. Words could not describe to 
the other players what it was like to 
play hoop in front of a crowd wild with 
support. They found out for them- 
selves when over 4,000 lucky Minute- 
men fans cheered their team to victory 
over Merrimack College 59-56. UMass 
students arrived at the Cage as early as 
an hour and a half before the game 
started. Even so, more than 1,000 stu- 
dents were turned away. 

The Minutemen could not pull off a 
winning streak at the beginning of the 
season and lost their next game to 
UNH. UMass broke a losing streak after

defeating Hartford 72-65. Five Minute- 
men scored in the double figures help- 
ing UMass go to 2-3. By February 
UMass placed sixth in the Atlantic -10 
behind West Virginia, St. Joseph's, 
Temple, St. Bonaventure, and Du- 

The season ended during the first 
round of the Atlantic - 10 tournament 
with a loss to Rutgers. The Minutemen 
had a record of six wins and twelve 
losses. Lorenzo Sutton and David 
Brown were honored by the Atlantic - 
10 media, being named to the all-con- 
ference and all-rookie teams respec- 

Next year all but one of the team's 
first nine players, including all five 
starters, will return. With players like 
Chase, Mosby, and Mundy, Gerlufsen is 
looking forward to next year's season.

A solid foundation 

Head coach Barbara Stevens led the 
UMass women's basketball team to 1 1- 
17 at the end of the season. Things 
looked good for the Minutewomen at 
the beginning of the season. No players 
from last season had graduated, giving 

Stevens a solid foundation for a team. 
Stevens also added two assistant 
coaches giving the team a three and a 
half to one player - coach ratio. 

"If something can go wrong it will" 
seemed to be the team's motto this

year. First, the Atlantic - 10 confer- 
ence, the third toughest women's 
league in the nation, started double 
round robin playing this season. UMass 
had to play nationally - ranked teams 
twice instead of once. The team also 
suffered injuries and resignations dur- 
ing the season. 

The team consists of seniors 5-9 for- 
ward Rebecca Kucks and 5-11 Karen 
Damminger, 5-9 sophomore Tara Lew- 
is, and 6-1 junior Kelly Collins. Senior 
captain Jerrie Bernier helped in pulling 
the players together to play as a team. 
The new players on the team are 6-0 
forward Beth Wilbur and 5-4 point 
guard Chris Zullo. Wilbur added her skill 
to the team with a perfected outside 
shot and Zullo was always quick on her 
feet. Other point guards Mary Marque- 
dant and Joann Dupuis were skilled in 
setting up the offense. 

The Minutewomen started off on the 
wrong foot this season by falling at 
their opening game to the University of 
Maine, 76-66. Stevens pulled her team 
back for a quick rebound and defeated 
Boston University for the third time in 
two seasons, 70-61. The high scorer 
for this game was forward Juanita Mat- 
thews. Center Sue Burtoft and Karen 
Damminger also contributed to the 
game. The team agreed that the Cage 
and the fans that cheered them on 
benefited their performance on the 

UMass continued to overpower 
teams like Dartmouth, Springfield Col- 
lege, and Vermont. UConn halted the 
four game winning streak making their 
record 4-2. The team's bad luck contin- 
ued, and they went under to LaSalle, 
Northeastern, and Penn State. The 
team then came back to grab two wins 
from Rhode Island and Duquesne only 
to lose their next five games to West 
Virginia, Temple, St. Joseph's, Penn 
State, and Rutgers. After winning in 
Cambridge to Harvard University, the 
UMass record became 9-10. 

The Minutewomen continued their 
slump for most of the season for a final 
record of 11-17. Injuries to key players 
was the main reason why the team 
could not break their losing streak. 
These players include Lewis, Collins, 
Burtoft, and Damminger. For five play- 
ers; Hebel, Matthews, Damminger, 
Bernier, and Kucks, this was their last 
season playing hoop at UMass.

against Lowell and Syracuse, but fell to 
the Naval Academy at their third meet. 
Sophomore Roberto Weil was the key 
gymnast this season as he led the Min- 
utemen with his expertise. 

UMass' biggest upset this season 
was a victory over East Stroudsburg 
University, last season's ECAC Division 
II champions. ESU head coach Keith 
Avery explained his team's loss with 
faulty equipment and biased officiating 
of the UMass officials. Coach Johnson 
admitted to a little home team bias, 
but thought Avery was overreacting. 
The win was legitimate and well de- 
served by the Minutemen. 

Although talented gymnasts like Phil 
Gorgone and Jay Ronayne competed 
with great effort, the team fell to 

Southern Connecticut State Universi- 
ty. This loss brought the record down 
to 3-3. UMass has never lost to Cort- 
land State in 14 years of competition 
. . . until this season. Johnson was dis- 
appointed but Cortland had become a 
stronger team this season. The Minute- 
men went on to take two out of three in 
their tri-meet at Temple. 

No one from the team is leaving next 
season. Johnson is optimistic about 
next season and hopes to get some 
good recruits. Johnson was satisfied 
with this season, but like any good 
coach, is setting his standards higher 
for next year.

Reaching for respectability 

Coach Chuck Shiebler took over the 
UMass women's gymnastics team two 
seasons ago. The team this year had 
an overall season record of 5-6. They 
also placed sixth out of eleven teams at 
the ECAC Championships and fifth out 
of seven teams in the Atlantic 10. 

Even though their record may not 
show it, the Minutewomen have the 
potential to be winners. Five of their 
meets were decided by one point or 
less. The Minutewomen won two of 
those five meets. 

The team also beat the University of 

New Hampshire for the first time in five 
years 169.65-169.05. The victory 
came because of the team's perfor- 
mance on the balance beam. The Min- 
utewomen outscored UNH 40.8 to 
39.1. Tricia Harrity led scorers on the 
beam with an 8.85 and finished the 
meet with a 32.45. 

In a meet against Yale, the Min- 
utewomen scored their season high of 
171.65 points, but it wasn't enough to 
beat Yale's score of 171.90 points. It 
was a very narrow and frustrating loss. 
In a meet against Rutgers, UMass 

dominated with a score of 165.85- 
148.70. The Minutewomen won all four 
events; the balance beam, floor 
events, vaults, and uneven parallel 

"We'll definitely miss the seniors," 
said Shiebler. "But we're a young 
team. I'm already looking forward to 
next year and I think we'll do even bet-

Drowning the competition 

Before becoming coach of the 
UMass Men's swimming team, Russ 
Yarworth swam for the Minutemen and 
set several school records. He was the 
New England coach of the year last 
season and this season he led the team 
to sixth place in the Atlantic-10. 

The team was led by co-captains 
Drew Donovan and Pat Mullen. Dono- 
van is one of New England's best swim- 
mers as well as an All-American. Mullen 
is one of New England's top five divers. 

Seniors Marc Surette and Paul 
McDonough also added strength to the 
team. John Turner, a transfer from 
Kentucky, is an excellent back stroker. 
Mike Hoover entered the season late 
due to an injury but, nonetheless, be- 
came a versatile breast stroker for the 
Minutemen. Fred Marius was also being 
counted for his expertise in the breast 
stroke and became one of the top six 
swimmers in New England. Juniors 
Rick Bishop and Mark Waters two 
freestylers, displayed great potential 
this season. Waters swam the longer 
distances while Bishop swam the mid- 
dle distances. Sophomore Jim Flan- 
nery was one of the top freshmen in 
the region this year and is a tough 
swimmer. Freshmen on the team in- 
cluded Mike Bolles, Ed Burton, Scott 
Kessler, and Chris Payson. 

The Minutemen opened the season 
with a victory over Boston College 76- 
36. UMass won all but one event. The 
team also went on to defeat Tufts, 
Springfield, Lowell, Northeastern, Am- 
herst, Williams, Rhode Island, Con- 
necticut, Vermont, and New Hamp- 

The Minutemen were undefeated for 
the season, 11-0. In their victory over 
UNH, UMass won nine events and set 
three pool records. The Minutemen 
ended the season with great accom- 
plishments from all swimmers. 

At the Atlantic - 10 championship 
meet, UMass was not at their best, but 
managed to place sixth. 

Sickness and injury hindered a cou- 
ple of key swimmers. The swimmers 
who managed to pull it together were 
Mike Hoover, Paul Hartnett, and Eric 

The Minutemen had a remarkable 
season. Their most outstanding ac- 
complishment was remaining unde- 
feated for the regular season. The 
team also placed second in the New

stroking in to third 

This season was Bob Newcomb's 
second year as the coach of the UMass 
women's swim team, and he recruited 
some of the finest high school swim- 
mers in New England to UMass. The 
Minutewomen finished the season 7-5. 

Eight freshmen were new to the 
team as well as Kris Henson, a transfer 
student. Sue Freitas and Allison Uzzo 
were co-captains of the team. Uzzo, a 
junior, became a record holder in the 
1000 and 1650 freestyle events. Frei- 
tas, a senior, swam the individual med- 
ley and the sprint events. Senior Nancy 

Stevens and freshman Lori Carrol were 
a strong combination in the 100 and 
200 butterfly. New recruits who racked 
up the points for UMass were Michele 
Leary, Melissa Waller, and diver Debbie 
Mullin. Sophomores Margaret Ca- 
meron and Julie Wilkins were top swim- 
mers from last year's team. Cameron 
swam distance and breast stroke 
events, while Wilkins swam back 

UMass got off to a great start with a 
91-49 victory over the University of 
Vermont. Many of the Minutewomen 

had victories. Lori Carrol won the 100 
and 200 butterfly, Melissa Waller won 
the 100 breast stroke, Regina Jung- 
bluth won the 200 breast stroke, and 
Debbie Mullin won the 3 meter diving 

Victories were also achieved in the 
500 and 1000 freestyle events by Alli- 
son Uzzo, the 50-yard freestyle by Sue 
Freitas, and the 200-yard freestyle by 
Kris Henson. 

The Minutewomen lost their next 
meets against Smith College and 
UConn. Nonetheless, the team 
bounced back and beat Springfield Col- 
lege but then lost their next meet to 
one of the best teams in New England, 
UMaine. The Minutewomen went on to 
defeat Williams College, Rhode Island, 
UNH, and Mount Holyoke. 

The team made it to the New Eng- 
land Championships and placed third 
out of 16 teams.

Gorillas go bananas 

This season head Coach Dick Garber 
entered his 32nd season as coach of 
the UMass men's lacrosse team. 
Garber has also been elected to the 
United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse 
Hall of Fame. UMass has never had an- 
other coach and Garber's career re- 
cord is 249-123-4. 

The name of the team, "Garber's 
Gorillas," originated in the late 1960's. 

The girlfriend of one of the players 
drew a picture of a gorilla in a lacrosse 
uniform and the nickname stuck. 

Senior defenseman Tom Aldrich and 
senior midfielder Steve Moreland 
served as co-captains. The top return- 
ing players were attackman Tom Car- 
mean, midfielder Greg Fisk, attackman 
Kelley Carr, attackman Doug Musco, 
midfielder Seamus McGovern, and de- 

fenseman Gerry Byrne. | 

Newcomers on the team are fresh- 1 
men Sal LaCasio, Adam Rodell, and 
Brett Jenks. Transfers on the team in- 
clude Greg Canella, Chris Knapp, and 
John Jordan. 

The Gorillas opened the season by 
defeating the US Air Force Academy 
13-7. Ed Boardman, Kelley Carr, and 
Greg Fisk each scored two goals for 


Defenseman Matt Woods stomped all over Army on April 26th. Army prevailed, however, winning in overtime 8-7.

UMass and Tom Aldrich added an- 
other. Tom Carmean scored the re- 
maining six goals. UMass had a tight 
defense with goalie Sal LoCasio making 
33 saves. 

The season continued with wins over 
the University of Delaware and the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire. 

An unfortunate loss occured when 
unranked Cornell University defeated 
UMass 11-6. The team recovered and 
came back to beat Brown, Boston Col- 
lege, and St. Johns. 

The Gorillas suffered their next loss 
at the game against Army. The game 
ended 33 seconds into overtime with a 
score of 8-7. Following this game, the 
Gorillas' record was 8-2. 

Seventh ranked UMass later defeat- 
ed Harvard and Dartmouth, but fell to 
Rutgers and Syracuse. The season 
ended with a record of 9-4. 

The NCAA Division I Lacrosse Tour- 
nament Committee surprisingly placed 
UMass as the eighth seed in the nation- 
al playoffs, replacing Loyola. They were 
originally ranked 11th and therefore 
out of the playoffs because of their loss 
against Syracuse. 

In the playoffs, UMass won their first 
game against UNH, but lost their next 
game to Johns Hopkins. 

Despite the unexpected losses, the 
1986 UMass men's lacrosse season 
was undoubtedly successful.

A roaring start 

At the start of the season, Coach 
Pam Hixon felt very confident that her 
team would play well. Her confidence 
was strong in the beginning, but slipped 
at the end of the season, when the 
Gazelles finished with a 6-4 record. 

The team won its season opener, 
crushing Boston University 11-5. BU 
scored the first goal, but senior attack- 
man Bunny Forbes came back and 
scored for UMass. The Gazelles' of- 
fense came alive and scored the next 

five goals. Lisa Griswold added another 
four goals. Other key players were Amy 
Robertson, Cathy Fuhrman, and GInny 

UMass defeated Yale 14-10 with 
goalie Pam Stone making eight saves. 

The Gazelles remained undefeated 
after playing Springfield College, Har- 
vard University, and Northeastern Uni- 
versity. At this point UMass was ranked 
sixth in the Division I national poll. 

In their first six games the Gazelles 

scored 85 goals, averaging 14.1 goals 
per game. Opponents scored 39 goals 
averaging 6.5 goals per game. 

The Gazelles lost their first game to 
the University of New Hampshire and 
also their next games to Dartmouth, 
Temple, and Rutgers. 

The team began the season full 
force, but fell at their last four games.

Late season surge 

Dick Berquist entered his 20th year 
as manager of the UlVlass baseball 
team this season. His talented but 
young team finished the season 16-21. 

The Minutemen were lacking nine 
seniors who graduated after last sea- 
son. Five freshmen were part of this 
years starting line up and were impor- 
tant for a strong pitching season. 

The pitching staff was led by senior 
co-captain Bob Kostro. Other players 
who returned to the mound were sen- 
ior Jon Martin and junior Steve Allard. 
Junior co-captain Sean Flint was catch- 
er for most of the season and displayed 
outstanding defensive abilities. 

Other key players who returned to 
the team included right hand pitcher 
Jeff Jensen, first baseman Jeff Cimini, 
second and third baseman Darrin 
O'Connor, left fielder Jay Zerner, cen- 
ter fielder Matt Sheran, second base- 
man Rob Holiday, and shortstop and 
pitcher Steve Allen. Top newcomers to 

the team included outfielder Jack 
Card, third baseman Steve Kern, right 
hand pitcher Dave Telgheder, and left 
hand pitcher Mike Owens. 

The Minutemen began their season 
in Florida. They returned with a record 
of 1-8. UMass defeated Eastern Ken- 
tucky, but lost another game to the 
same school, as well as Ithaca, Yale, 
Rollins, Indiana, Brown, and Iowa. 

When the Minutemen returned, they 
lost three consecutive games to Tem- 
ple, one to Connecticut, and two to St. 
Joseph's, giving them a record of 1-14. 
The players as well as the coach felt as 
though all hope was lost. 

At their next game, the Minutemen 
put all their effort into their playing and 
wiped out Holy Cross 13-2. 

The team played inconsistently 
throughout the season. An example is 
their double- header against Maine. 
UMass lost the first game, 5-11, but 
won the second game, 13-5. 

The victory over Maine was the be- 
ginning of a ten game winning streak 
for the Minutemen, making their re- 
cord 14-16. The team snapped their 
winning streak with a loss to Rutgers. 

UMass ended their season with a re- 
cord of 16-24. The team's perfor- 
mance proves that they have talent 
and with a little more experience might 
go straight to the top next season.

The best in the east 

Coach Elaine Sortino entered her 
seventh season as head of the UMass 
Softball team this year. Her entire team 
returned this season along with a few 
new recruits. Also, the Minutewomen 
laid claim to its first Atlantic 10 tourna- 
ment title. 

Co-captains for the team were cen- 
terfielder Sally Maher and second 
baseman Carol Frattaroli. Other top re- 
turning players were shortstop Paige 
Kopcza, first baseman Martha Jamie- 
son, third baseman Debbie Cole, left 
handed pitcher Lynn Stockley, right 
handed pitcher and infielder Cathy 
Reed, right handed pitcher Lisa Rever, 
and utility Chris Ciepiela. Top newcom- 
ers were outfielder Barbara Meehan 
and pitcher Chris Wanner. 

The Minutewomen's spring trip to 
Florida put them ahead in their season. 
Teams defeated were: Virginia, Maine, 
Miami, Eastern Michigan, St. John's, 
DePaul, and Wisconsin-Green Bay, and 
Bowling Green. UMass' first loss was to 
Western Illinois. 

When the Minutewomen returned to 
the Northeast, they were ranked 20th 
in the nation and number one in the 
Northeast region, ahead of the Univer- 
sity of Connecticut and Adelphi Univer-

UMass' first home games consisted 
of a doubleheader against Providence 
College. Both games were shutouts. 
Not a single UMass player struck out 
and Rever and Stockley allowed only 
four hits from PC and struck out 21 

UMass' next doubleheader was also 
a double shut out. They beat Holy 
Cross 7-0 and 12-0. Lynn Stockley 
pitched the first game striking out 14 
batters and allowing only two hits. 
Stockley, in 43 innings, has allowed 19 
hits, two earned runs, and 48 strike 
outs. Sophomore Lisa Rever and fresh- 
man Chris Wanner pitched a no-hitter 
during the second game. 

The team's offense was led by Frat- 
teroli with a .404 batting average. She 
was followed by Maher, Talbott, and 
Kopcza. UMass accumulated only 22 
strike outs, compared to 111 strike 
outs for their opponents during the 
season. As a team UMass had an aver-

age of .454. 

UMass continued its string of shu- 
touts, winning two games against Adel- 
phi, 1-0, and 3-0. 

UMass' nine-game winning streak 
ended during the first game of the At 
lantic 10 doubleheader against 

With a record of 21-5, UMass went 
on to win 15 games and lose only two; 
the team finished with a record of 36- 

The Minutewomen, now ranked 19th 
in the nation, captured their first Atlan- 
tic 10 tournament title by defeating 
Rutger, 3-2, in a rematch. Rutgers was 
in the lead, 2-0, before UMass came 
from behind. 

As the top team in the Northeast, 
UMass headed for the NCAA Division I 
Regionals. In the first round UMass was 
defeated by Northwestern.

That's the way the ball 


After coming off last season's re- 
spectable 6-4 record, the UMass men's 
tennis team was expected to do well 
this year. Unfortunately, it was not to 
be one of their better seasons. 
Coached again by Manny Roberts, the 
team posted a 3-5 record. 

They opened the season with three 
straight losses to Hartford, MIT, and 
Rhode Island. They won big against 
Springfield 9-0, Clark 8-1, and pulled 

through with a 5-4 win against Con- 

Their season ended on a down note 
with a loss to Central Connecticut 3-6. 
But, since the UMass men's tennis 
team saved themselves from being de- 
moted to a club sport, they will be able 
to try again next year.

A respectable season 

!n her first season at the UMass 
helm, Deedie Steele coached her team 
to a 4-2 record. In the season opener 
against Connecticut, it would appear 
that the Minutewomen were not ready 
to begin, for UMass suffered a loss of 1- 
8. They bounced back, however, and 
defeated Clark and Smith with 8-0 and 
8-1 matches. Mt. Holyoke was another 
team badly beaten by UMass 9-0. In 
their last match of the season Welles- 
ley put up a fight, but UMass prevailed 

The women's tennis team rebound- 
ed from the 1985 season of 2-6 to win 
more than half their games during the 
1986 season. The team has shown it is 
worth keeping as a varsity sport. Be- 
fore the season even began, the team 
had to save itself from extinction. By 
going in front of the University's Board 
of Trustees, they succeeded in con- 
tinuing as a varsity sport and will be 
around next year to tear up the courts.

On the right track 

Coach Ken O'Brien's men's track 
team started off the season with a tri- 
meet against Dartmouth and New 
Hampshire. Dartmouth ran away with 
a score of 105. Umass followed at a 
distance with a 55 and New Hampshire 
suffered a big loss with a 39. 

UMass winners of the tri-meet were 
Rawie Crichlow with a 10.8 in the 100, 
and a 22.5 in the 200. Mark Themea 
also won running the 800 in 1:53.9. 
Ferdie Adobe won the triple jump with 
a 47'2" and Rod Malcolm took the high 
jump with a leap of 6'2". Senior John 
Panaccione won the 5,000 meter race 
with a 14:34.2. 

A highlight for the men's season was 
when they placed second in the East- 
ern Championships out of 20 teams. 
Southern Connecticut took the meet 
with 135 points. UMass followed in sec- 
ond place with 79 points. The Universi- 
ty of Maine-Orono was third with 68 
and New Hampshire came in fourth. 

UMass winners were Mark Themea 
with a 3:52.63 in the 1500, Rick Dow 
with a 14:47.32 in the 5,000 and Mon- 
roe with a 31:38.86 in the 10,000 me- 
ter race. 

Scorers who placed second were 
Ferdie Adobe in the triple jump, and 
Larry Cuddy in the 400 meter hurdles. 

Third and fourth place winners were 
Craig Moburg in the 800 meters (3rd) 
and Wayne Levy in the steeplechase 
(4th). The 1,600 meter relay team 
took third with a time of 3:25.95. 

Each individual on the men's track 
team has certainly proven themselves 
worthy of praise this season. Just by 
looking at the times and places each 
member received, will tell you that the 
UMass men's track team is not one to 
be dealt with lightly.

The ability is evident 

Before Spring track began, the wom- 
en's team suffered a great setback. 
Mary Fortune (30), assistant coach for 
three years, died of natural causes in 
March. She was in charge of the weight 
events: the javelin, shot put and discus. 
She will be remembered for helping to 
make the Umass women's track team 
one of the strongest in New England 
and in the East. 

Even though the women's team was 
young, they definitely showed talent. 
After attending the BC Holiday Classics 
in January, Coach Banda replied 
"We've done very well. I expect big 
things during the second semester." 

Individually big things did happen On 
April 8th, the Minutewomen were at 
the Yale Invitationals. For the weight 
events, freshman Caria DeSantis won 
the javelin with a 147 foot toss. 

In other events, the 4x100 relay 
team set a school record with a 48.31. 
Cari Fleischmann, Wendy Marshall, 
Pam Hughes and Kayla Morrison ran 
the record breaking event. In the 
4x440 relay, the team came in third. 
Pam Hughes took the 200 from first 
place with a 25.46, while her team- 
mate Morrison followed with a second 
place finish. 

On May 3-4, the Minutewomen 

proved themselves even more capable, 
when they took second place out of 26 
teams in the New England Champion- 
ships. The UMass women followed be- 
hind Boston University in the meet. 
Kayla Morrison and Sue Goldstein were 
the highlight of the meet when they 
took a 1-2 finish in the 400 meter race. 
Morrison won with a 59.16 and Gold- 
stein finished second with a 1:01.76. 

Other winning events were the 
4x100 meter relay clocked at 48.05 
which beat Northeastern's 50.20. 
Later on in the meet, UMass beat 
Northeastern again in the 4x400 relay 
with a time of 3:57.93. 

Other Umass scorers were CarIa De- 
Santis in the javelin with a throw of 
138-2V2 and Pam Hughes with a sec- 
ond place finish in the long jump (17.7) 
and the 200 (25.45). Helen Balaouras 
received a fifth in the shot put and a 
fourth in the discus. 

"The whole team ran well," said 
UMass coach Kalekeni Banda. "I'm a 
little surprised we came in second, but 
that shows what we're capable of." 
The ability is certainly there for the 
women's track team. This season gave 
them experience for next year and a 
chance to prove that they are definite- 
ly serious contenders for next season.

Grand finale 

Jack Leaman opened his last season 
as a varsity sport coach with a second 
place finish in the Golf Quad Match at 
Oak Ridge. UConn took the match with 
a 387, UMass received a 408, while 
Bentley followed closely behind at third 
with 409. Springfield was last with a 
437. For UMass, Joe Petrin tied for 
third place with two UConn players 
scoring a 78. Captain Brian Fitzgerald 
had an 80 and Jim Forsgard shot an 


As the season progressed, UMass 
had its ups and downs. UMass lost to 
Boston College and Holy Cross. At the 
Yale Invitationals, UMass placed fifth 
out of eight teams. 

The team's best finish occurred at 
the State Championships in Stowe 
where they placed second, losing to 
Salem State. At the New Englands in 
New Seabury, UMass received a team 

low score of 305 and placed 14th out 
of 42 teams. Captain Brian Fitzgerald 
had a fine showing, scoring a 74, while 
Joe Petrin received a low score of 75 
and Jim Forsgard a 76. 

This was the last season for the golf 
team as a varsity sport and, as of yet, it 
is not known what the status of the 
team will be in the future.

The sweet smell of success 

The 1985-86 sports year, at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts will certainly 
be a memorable one. It has been a year 
that has seen numerous victories by all 
sports teams. In the Fall, all five major 
sports (football, field hockey, men's 
and Vi^omen's soccer, and volleyball) 
gleamed with winning seasons. 

Their seasons ended when Spring- 
time was just around the corner and 
with it came more success to the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. Almost all 
the Spring sports (men's and women's 
lacrosse, tennis, track, baseball, and 
Softball) encountered good fortune in 
one form or another somewhere down 
the line. 

The men's lacrosse team had an un- 
believable season with a winning re- 
cord of 10-5 and a 'trip to the NCAA 
Finals. Coach Dick Garber acted as a 
great mentor and helped them to see 
NCAA action. In his 32nd year, he was 
elected in December to lacrosse Hall of 
Fame. He is the only lacrosse coach 
the University of Massachusetts has 
seen and has a career record of 249- 
123.4. He's the most successful active 
lacrosse coach in the nation. Congratu- 
lations are in order for him and his 
team for finally making it back into the 

The women's lacrosse team also had 

good fortune this Spring. They were 
ranked in the top ten for most of the 
season, but fell in the last four games. 
They ended with a respectable 6-4 re- 

Tennis and track each had their mo- 
ments of success. The women's tennis 
team, coached by Deedie Steele for 
her first year at the helm, posted a 4-2 
record. It's not bad considering last 
season's team posted a 2-6 record. 
The men's tennis team guided by 
Manny Roberts didn't fair so well at 3- 

Even though the overall records may 
not show it, the men's and women's 
track teams did remarkably well for 
themselves this past season. There 
aren't many team scores because suc- 
cess for these athletes are on a more 
individual basis. 

Golf, coached by Jack Leaman had 
their best finish with a second in the 
State Championships at the Stow 
Acres Country Club. Due to not having 
enough funds to keep this sport alive, 
however, golf will be cut from Varsity 
status. I'm sure many athletes and in- 
coming freshmen will be sorry it's no 
longer a varsity sport. 

Coming bact< with a 1-14 start from 
Florida, didn't give the University of 
Massachusetts baseball team much 

confidence. Of course the Minutemen* 
didn't give up, and they went on with 
the rest of the season trying and trying 
to get it right. It finally came and off 
they went on a ten game winning 
streak. They didn't make it to the play- 
offs, but it shows that they are capable 
of being a winning team. 

The 19th ranked University of Mas- 
sachusetts Softball team claimed its 
third A-10 regular season title in four 
years and had five of its members cho- 
sen to the All Tournament team. It was 
quite an honor for the team and coach. 
It seems that Coach Elaine Sortino has 
a knack for cranking out these winning 
seasons, for she is also coach for the 
women's volleyball team who won the 
ECAC championship last winter. The 
Softball team then went on to the 
NCAA finals but lost in the first round to 
Northwestern. Their record still spells 
success — 37-9. 

All in all, the University of Massachu- 
setts is pushing in a new direction. Var- 
sity sports, such as the ones men- 
tioned above, have finally been recog- 
nized as tough competitors to beat. 
Commendations should go to each 
team for bringing success back into the 
UMass athletic system.

Spring Success/235 

Just for the fun of it 

The University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst houses one of the largest 
athletic departments in the state. The 
program offers students a variety of 
sports, ranging from golf to varsity 
football. But, for those students who 
enjoy only the competition, and not 
the rigors of a varsity sport schedule, 

numerous clubs and intramural sports 

The Intramural Program and the club 
sports attempt to enhance a student's 
athletic skills by creating a competi- 
tive, yet recreational setting. Their 
schedules begin immediately in the fall 
and end in May. Sports such as foot- 

ball, track, soccer, tennis, and an end- 
less list of co-recreational sports are 
available for students wishing only for a 
few seconds, not a lifetime, in the spot-

Placement Services 

"We make it happen" is the theme of 
the University Placement Service, and 
making it happen is exactly what they 
do. The service is located in a modern 
building in Fraternity/Sorority Park, 
where it moved in February of 1985 
from its previous location in Hampshire 
House. The services offered here are 
numerous. They include: on-campus 
recruiting, the Office of Cooperative 
Education, a computer referral pro- 
gram, a resource library. Follow-up in- 
formation on graduates, credentials, 
resume writing, interview tapes, and 
rooms for videotaping mock interviews 
are also available at the University 
Placement Services. These services 
are offered, free of charge, for the con- 
venience of the students, as well as the 
recruiting companies. 

The service is generally funded by 
outside donations. These sources in- 
clude alumni, companies interested in 
the University, and other such parties. 
The donations take many different 
forms. Besides the actual donation of 
money, such things as computers, and 
other equipment has been donated in 
order to help students. These dona- 
tions allow for the University Place- 
ment Service to use the state funding 
for upkeep and maintenance. Dona- 
tions provide such specialties as maga- 
zine subscriptions and other publica- 
tions that are available at no cost to 
the student. Without these donations 
the service would not be as extensive 
as it is now. New sources of support 
are being discovered constantly, allow- 
ing the placement service programs to 
be expanded and improved even more. 

Recruiters have commented that 
UMass has one of the best organized 
and productive career centers in the 
nation. The service not only makes 
things easier for the students but also 
for the recruiters. The resume is kept 
on record and if a company calls asking 
for a person with specific qualifica- 
tions, the service looks up whatever 
resumes seem most appropriate and 
sends them off to the interested com- 
pany. This service costs nothing, and is 
undoubtedly advantageous for every- 
one involved. 

The placement center keeps the re- 
cruiters busy and productive. A series 
of thirteen interviews is set up for each 
day a company is on the campus. This 

gives the recruiters a variety of pro- 
spective employees, and makes them 
feel time spent at UMass is time well 
spent, since there are no large gaps in 
their interview schedule. As a result of 
the pleasant and productive working 
conditions at the University Placement 
Service more and more companies are 
putting UMass on their list of preferred 
locations for recruiting. 

Expansion is a large part of the ser- 
vice's future. The service is constantly 
expanding, and there are even more 
visions on the horizon. The staff and 
University Placement Service Director, 
Arthur Hilson, get together and pool 
their ideas. Some of these ideas are 
borrowed from already existing pro- 
grams at other schools. Within the past 
two and one half years there have been 
additions of 117 new companies to the 
service. All past, present, and future 
improvements are a direct result of a 
"committed staff working together" 
according to Arthur Hilson. 

Approximately 325 students use the 
service's facilities in a single day. For 
the 1984-85 school year 489 sched- 
ules were planned. A schedule is a se- 
ries of thirteen interviews conducted 
by a company in one day. This adds up 
to a total of 6,357 interviews in one 
year. Even more schedules were 
planned for this year. 

The seniors who use the service are 
very pleased with it. The University 
Placement Service is well used and 
considered to be quite advantageous. 
The seniors use the service for all of its

facilities and not just to set up inter- 
views. The friendly staff and pleasant 
conditions make interviewing a little 
less intimidating than at other institu- 
tions. The helpfulness of the staff, as 
well as videotapes on interviewing 
techniques, aid those interviewing or 
those with questions. Overall, the stu- 
dents seem to agree that the Universi- 
ty Placement Service is worthwhile.

Mock interviews are an integral part of the placement process.

The Great Job Search 

One of the greatest challenges dur- 
ing a student's senior year is finding a 
job after graduation. Obtaining that 
first, all important job in the "real" 
world is both intimidating and exhila- 
rating. Everyone goes about this task in 
his or her own unique style. For most 
students the job search is a long, pains- 
taking experience fraught with anxiety. 

Perhaps the most essential part of 
the job search is the resume. The re- 
sume can make or break someone's 
chances of obtaining a job. A good re- 
sume can give a very favorable impres- 
sion before the company meets their 
potential future employee. A poorly 
written resume can reflect negatively 
upon a job candidate. 

A well written resume contains sev- 
eral items of pertinent information. It 
includes the student's home or perma- 
nent address, as well as his/her tem- 
porary address if at school. Phone 
numbers at each residence should be 
included. The next piece of information 
is the objective, describing what the 
resume-writer hopes to achieve. 

Educational data is next. A compila- 
tion of colleges or universities, along 
with the type of degree earned, comes 
under this category. Also under educa- 
tion, but optional, is grade point aver- 
ages. The major grade point average 
may be included if beneficial to the re- 
sume. However, they may be omitted if 
they are less than impressive. 

Work experience is the next vital 
item on the resume. This section in- 
cludes a listing of all places of employ- 
ment, job title, and job description. 

Activities follows work experience on 
the resume. A brief listing of activities 
the student has participated in during 
college completes this category. Last, 
but not least, is the references cate- 
gory. Generally these are not listed but 
are "available on request". Good re- 
sumes should not exceed one typewrit- 
ten page. Any longer than this and em- 
ployers are generally bored by wordi- 
ness. The more accurate and concise 
the resume is, the better received it 
will be. Students uncertain about writ- 
ing a resume can seek assistance at 
the University Placement Service, 
where resume counselling is available. 

The University Placement Service 
and/or School of Management Place- 
ment Service are the first places where 
most students look for help in the job 
search. The services provide a place 
for recruiters to contact the Universi- 
ty, and also where students connect 
with the recruiters. The School of Man- 
agement Placement Service specialize 
in jobs for business students. However, 
the University Placement Service 
works within all fields of study to find 
job opportunities. Since the services at 
the placement centers are so readily 
available, few students look elsewhere 
when they are applying and interview- 
ing for jobs. 

Probably the most vital part of the 
job search is also the most terrifying. 
This is, of course, the interview. Filling 
out applications, filing resumes, and 
even setting up an interview is easy 
compared to the interview. 

Most students lack the confidence in 
themselves needed for an effective in- 
terview. This lack of confidence can be 
counteracted in a couple of very simple 
ways. First of all, the University Place- 
ment Service regularly shows video- 
tapes on good interviewing techniques. 
Second, they have facilities available 
where a student can videotape a mock 
interview and then view his/her video- 
tape and identify areas for improve- 
ment. A key point to remember is that 
the interviewer knows the tension and

federal employment. 

nervousness of interviewing, so they 
will be somewhat understanding. 

In general, although job searching is 
nerve wracking, students find it com- 
fortable, on the University of Massa- 
chusetts campus, to look for a job. The 
placement centers make interviewing 
as easy and convenient as possible. 
Overall, since students must interview, 
the University of Massachusetts is a 
promising and effective place to be for 
the great job search.

spring semester, the winispers begin. 
Rumors spread rapidly and students seek 
out friends in area government and UPC. 
Everyone wants to know who is coming 
to spring concerts. For three weekends in 
a row, the campus echoes with the 
sounds of music and partying, as every 
area government — and UPC — spon-

This year the major concerts were the 
East Side concert, sponsored by the Or- 
chard Hill, Central, Northeast, and Sylvan 
area governments; Bowl Day; Southwest 
Day; and the UPC pond concert. 

The East Side concert, held on April 27, 
a beautiful sunny day, showcased the 
talents of Cabo Frio, Boston's Del Fuegos, 
the Robert Cray Band, and well-known 
performer Marshall Crenshaw. The follow- 
ing weekend included Bowl Day and 
Southwest Day, May 3 and 4, respective- 
ly. Bowl Day was cool and partly cloudy, 
but Orchard Hill residents turned out to 
party, and the Modern Pladz, Group Ther- 
apy, and the Fools were well-received. 
The weather did not improve much for 
Southwest Day, but no one seemed to 
mind too much.

In conclusion 

This edition of tlie University of Mas- 
sachusetts Index is the 117th year- 
book published, making the Index the 
third oldest and continually published 
yearbook in the nation. 

The theme of this year's yearbook, 
"The Big Push," represents efforts by 
UMass students, faculty, and adminis- 
tration to make the University one of 
the best in the Northeast. The number 
of high school seniors applying to 
UMass has reached record breaking 
proportions with almost 20,000 appli- 
cations being returned. Only one in five 
students were accepted for the class of 
1900, thus allowing the administration 
to be more selective in their choice of 
students for the freshman class. 

"The Big Push" also applies to the 
efforts of the yearbook staff to improve 
the organization. 

In the past the yearbook has had 
problems with funding and respectabil- 
ity. The yearbook is no longer funded 
by the Student Government Associ- 
ation, thereby creating a deficit for the 
Index. The late arrival of books to cam- 
pus and threats of abolishment of the 
book altogether have instilled a feeling 

of distrust among students. 

This year, it was decided by the ad- 
ministration to add the Index as a neg- 
ative check-off to the tuition bill, there- 
by ensuring funding beginning with the 
1988 yearbook. The Index staff also 
produced a quality yearbook with thou- 
sands of dollars left over for the first 
time since 1982. 

11 students were new to the staff, 
many of whom had never done layout. 
12 members of the staff represented 
UMass at a college yearbook workshop 


The 117th volume of the 
INDEX was printed by Jostens 
Printing & Publishing in Topeka, 
KS. The 2,000 copy press run 
was printed on 80 # gloss. Out 
of 320 pages 31 were printed in 
the four color process. All 
separations were made with 
Jostens Layser Scanner. 

The Cratline embossed cover 
was manufactured by Jostens. 
Maroon #490 leathertone was 
grained with mission and 
mounted on 150 pt. Davey 
binders board. The cover was 
screened with white #325 and 
hand rubbed with black #326. 

Text and captions were set in 
News Gothic and News Gothic 

Endsheets were medium beige 
#308 and front endsheet was 
printed with maroon #194. 

Senior portraits were by 
Yearbook Associates of Turners 
Falls, MA.

The talent and dedication of this 
year's Index staff is evident in the qual- 
ity of the book and in meeting the final 
deadline. Not only is the book pub- 
lished on time, but is also in the running 
for four prestigious awards. 

In the future I hope to encourage 
more students and faculty to work on 
the production of a yearbook for 
UMass. This year is simply a stepping 
stone for what is to come. 

The success of the 1986 Index is due 
mainly to the following people whom I 
would like to thank: 

Connie, you were my right-hand 
man" and always seemed to have en- 
ergy when I didn't. You took it upon 
yourself to get things done. Your 
strengths were my weaknesses and 
that's what made us such a great 
team. I'm sorry to see you leave the 
staff but I wish you the best of luck in 
your future. 

Judy, your organizational skills were 
one of your strong points. The system 
you devised as photo editor worked 
like a charm. You were a terrific photo

editor as well as a talented photogra- 
pher. I never had to worry about quan- 
tity or quality of photos with you at the 
helm. You had much to add to the In- 
dex this year and I am looking forward 
to your return. 

Cindy, you were very supportive of 
me during my year as editor in chief 
and I appreciate that. You also estab- 
lished a desperately needed marketing 
staff and helped us in the darkroom 
when we needed it. Good luck after 

John, your sense of humor kept us 
alive while we were putting pages to- 
gether during those early hours of the 
morning. You learned the ins and outs 
of making a yearbook very quickly. I'll 
see you on the staff next year when 
you're just a sophomore. 

Cara, we need pages! Your dedica- 
tion to the athletics section is com- 
mendable. You are a very responsible 

person and are easy to get along with. I 
will miss you next year. 

Lauren, your sense of timing was 
perfect. Not only were you always 
there when we needed you but the 
copy you submitted was quality writ- 
ing. Good luck out in the real world. 

Carol, if there was something that 
needed to be done I could always de- 
pend on you to do it. Not only are you a 
reliable section editor but your skills in 
the darkroom were very much appreci- 

Kevin, the quality of your layouts im- 
proved during the year. You are not 
afraid to ask questions or be creative, a 
respectable quality in a section editor. 

Caria, when you took on the arts 
section it was late in the year and there 
was a lot of work ahead of you. Not 
only were you new on the staff, but you 
were unfamiliar with layouts. You 
learned quickly and the section looks 

Lisa, it's unfortunate that you won't 
be on the staff next year. You took on a 
section when you had no layout exper- 
ience but took the initiative to learn. 
Good luck in Michigan. 

Steve, I'm glad you showed up on 
the Index doorstep this year. The 
hours you put in working at the table 
on the concourse and typing for the 
editors on the staff was of great help. 
Good luck in your future plans.

Karen, being a perfectionist paid off. 
Your organization section is the best 
the Index has seen. Even though you 
were new to the art of designing pages 
you took it upon yourself to do as much 
as you could for your section. Good 
luck as a college graduate. 

inah, you were always full of ideas 
and saw new ways to improve your sec- 

tion. Although things didn't work out as 
planned, you had a lot to add to the 
organization and I hope I'll be able to 
work with vou next year. 

Sheri, you filled the new position of 
photo technician with great authority. 
The time and effort you dedicated to 
the printing marathons helped the In- 
dex make the final deadline. Best of 
luck in Oregon. 

Wayne, when I had plans for a bigger 
and better academics section, I had 
you in mind as academics editor. Your 
reputation as a dedicated yearbook 
editor in high school preceeded you. 
The first time I met you was the day I 
asked you to be on the staff. You did a 
great job with the section and I'm sorry 
to see you go. Study hard at AlC. 

Dario, "The Big Push" was a fantas- 
tic theme for the 1986 Index. It is very 
appropriate and the staff and I enjoyed

carrying the theme throughout the 
book. You are a great resource for jour- 
nalism and marketing ideas. I hope to 
see you next year. 

Don, when the editors were in the 
beginning stages of designing their sec- 
tions you helped by offering them 
many new and exciting ideas. I appreci-
