in order to host the 
building of what even-

They titled the pam-

was and has been con-

119 years. 

Since then, both the 
Index and the univer- 
sity have experienced 
a number of changes 
and the yearbook has 
chronicled every one. 

With this year's 
theme, "U of All Peo-

praised the students 
for their show of pro-

themselves up for a

took up arms against

peaceful protests. 

Also in May, the 
Board of Regents of 
Higher Education ap- 
proved an 8.5 percent 
increase in tuition at 
public colleges across 
the state. 

The new proposal 
calls for an annual rise 
in tuition until a 60 
percent increase is 
reached. Tuition for

year at UMass is ex- 
pected to increase

Home, Sweet Hill 

By John M. Doherty 

You don't have to be Dr. Freud to 
realize that Orchard Hill has a split 

Nestled high above the campus amidst a 
dense blanket of foliage, the Hill's majes- 
tic slopes and regal brick and glass build- 
ings would at first suggest a tranquil sanc- 
tuary for the mellow-minded student or 
nature-loving adventurer. 

Yet, the Hill has been known to flash a 
more ferocious face as well . . . Mercilessly 
assaulting wintertime pedestrians with 
fang-like bursts of wind while always 
ready to claim an unwary high-heeled vic- 
tim upon her treacherous ascent/descent 
from its peak. 

Long-known as a haven for cultural di- 
versity. Orchard Hill is host to the presti- 
gious Martin Luther King Center (at 
Dickinson residence hall), while present- 
ing regular forums on social awareness is- 
sues, such as the recent racism/sexism 
workshops in Webster dormitory as well as 
the social-issues themed "Bowl Day," on 
April 30. 

For those students interested in develop- 
ing their physiques as well as their intel- 
lects, Webster's Hilltop Health Club pro- 
vides an informed, energetic atmosphere 
in which to tone sinews and develop per- 
sonalized health regimes. Likewise, Field's 
"Sweet's and More" snack shop provides 
regular "exercises" in temptation for those 
residents who find scooping ice cream 
more fulfilling than "pumping iron." 

All in all, this tree-flanked community 
provides the perfect setting for those stu- 
dents who wish to keep their heads in the 
clouds, while maintaining solid footing in 
areas of cultural concern.

Crown Of The Campus 


By Lora Grady 

ith a resplendent view of campus and 
noble architecture providing interest 
for the eyes, the elegant, sprawling 
grounds of the Central living area add 
much-needed drama to the serene land- 
scape of nearby Orchard Hill. 

Named for its strategic placement with- 
in the empire that is UMass, the Central 
area features an arrangement of austere 
buildings with spires rising to the sky like 
battlements to overlook the campus below. 
Among the attractions enjoyed by Central 
area residents (besides a proximity to 
nearly every part of the campus) are the 
Greenough snackbar, the Wheeler Art 
Gallery, and luxurious stretches of lush, 
green lawn which are ideal for a friendly 
game of frisbee or catching some rays on a 
warm spring afternoon. 

Also particular to the Central area is the 
Butterfield dormitory. Residents of But- 
terfield do not participate in the campus 
meal plan, opting instead to dine by co-op 
arrangement, whereby meal planning, 
shopping, cooking, and serving are all car- 
ried out by students. 

Each building in the Central area has an 
architectural characteristic which defines 
Mand sets it apart from its neighbors. 
Brooks, located at the bottom of the steep 
Central hill, features glassed-in lounges 
connected by spiral staircases. Nearby 
Wheeler has "decks" at either end of the 
building, accessible from the fourth floor. 
And Van Meter, the venerable matriarch 
of the area, sits regally atop the crown of 
the hill, sporting a cupola which com- 
mands the greatest possible view of cam- 
pus and the surrounding valley.

Kris Bruno 

Irejnember my first visit to Southwest. 
Of course, from any place on campus, 
it was impossible to miss, with its five 
towers projecting into the sk.y like brick 
exclamation points. As I drew closer, I 
realized that even if I were blind I could 
still find my way there. It isn't exactly a 
serene place. But, then again, with 5,000 
people living there, how could it be? Can 
you imagine all those people being quiet at 
once? No, not really. 

I must confess that I was a bit apprehen- 
sive going there. I had heard about the 
horrors of Southwest — the raucous tower 
wars that make Orchard Hill bowl wars 
sound like tea-time conversations, the in- 
famous Southwest riot, and the perils of 
walking from dorm to dorm because of the 
never-ending construction that always 
posed an inconvenience, not to mention 
that it was such a long walk from my cozy 
home up on the Hill. Well, I finally made 
it there, and found myself captivated by 
the diverse and exciting lifestyle. 

Southwest has much to offer its inhabit- 
ants. It has a full program of social, cultur- 
al, and academic events for its residents. 
There are also such services as the Mal- 
com X Center and the Center For Racial 
Studies. And, if one ever is looking for 
something to do, a quick walk to the 
Hampden Student Center should elimi- 
nate all boredom. It houses a snack bar, a 
craft shop, computer terminals, an audito- 
rium used for concerts, plays, and other 
social events. 

Although it is virtually isolated from the 
rest of the residential areas on campus, 
Southwest has a full and fun atmosphere. 
It has the largest social life at UMass. At 
almost any hour, one can find people play- 
ing basketball or frisbee on the horseshoe 
or by the pyramids. This year, the South- 
west Area Government sponsored a pro- 
ject to renovate the Maze, an avant-garde 
gathering place to walk through with 

Someday I hope to conduct an experi- 
ment to see if it is really true that there is 
always someone awake on Southwest, at 
any time of day or night. But, judging 
from my crazy experiences there, and the 
unique individuals I know there, 1 don't 
even think 1 would have to bother.

A Melting Pot Of Trends And Tradition 

John MacMillan 

The Northeast residential area was 
constructed in the early 1930's, mak- 
ing it the oldest living area on 

Tlie area showcases the simplicity of 
traditional design and the luxuries of con- 
temporary lifestyles, creating a unique liv- 
ing atmosphere. 

Located near the Graduate Research 
Tower and Totman Gym, the area is made 
up of nine residence halls (Crabtree, 
Dwight, Hamlin, Johnson, Knowlton, 
Leach, Lewis, Mary Lyon and Thatcher) 
that are smaller than most dorms on cam- 
pus. Still, these halls provide residents 
with comfortable, close-knit settings in 
which to study, sleep and simply let loose. 

Crabtree dormitory houses a computer 
room in its basement with three operating 
terminals, while several other dorms have 
fireplaces and saunas. 

But, if that's not enough, each house is 
built on the perimeter of a massive, grassy 
field, appropriately named "the Quad." 

In the winter, this area is the scene of 
many a bloody snowball fight between the 
different houses and, in the spring, the 
snowballs usually become voUeyballs as 
houses challenge one another to grueling 
tests of physical endurance. 

Aside from providing the opportunity to 
flex sinews, the Northeast Educational 
Program offers one-credit colloquia on 
racism and sexism that stimulate the

A Campus Camelot 

By John MacMillan 

Sylvan has, in the past, been described 
as the "castle on the beach." Its 
warm, red-brick exterior, flanked by 
towering oaks and pines , suggests a mod- 
ern-day Camelot for the college set. Actu- 
ally, Sylvan is the youngest and most 
unique of all living areas on campus. 

Situated in the Northeast corner of the 
campus. Sylvan houses some 1,350 stu- 
dents in its three residence halls. 

Unlike other areas, each residence hall 
is divided into 64 single-sexed suites. 
These suites, occupied by six to eight stu- 
dents, contain a living room/lounge area 
and a small, common bathroom. 

Students interviewed in a random sur- 
vey, found this set-up to be the area's main

Aside from its unique living arrange- 
ments. Sylvan boasts a newly-renovated 
snackbar with a wide selection of treats, 
including Bart's ice cream, bagels, salads, 
and hot dogs. 

In the spring, the Sylvan Area, Govern- 
ment plays, host to a variety of outdoor 
activities, including Sylvan Day and 
Brown Olympics. This year, the Sylvan 
Cultural Society sponsored a successful 
outdoor jazz festival.

r, ntering UMass as a freshm 
*••* can be scary, especially whi 
one realizes that he or she 
becoming one of 25,000 stu 
dents. It can be extremeh 
easy to feel lost in the crowd 
in the hustle and bustle of campus life. 
After a while, people simply begin to look 
alike, and days, in general, seem to blend 
together — one day being indistinguishable 
from the next. 

But, here at UMass, there exists an un- 
dercurrent of excitement, fueled, in part, 
by intense student activism, which pre- 
vents monotony from setting in. Almost 
everyone can find something to spice up 
their days, thus yielding a more fruitful 
college experience. 

Whether it be playing in a band, experi- 
menting with hairstyle and dress, doing 
something a bit off-the-wall every once in 
a while, or simply enjoying the company of 
friends, UMass students are definitely ca- 
pable of upholding the university's reputa- 
tion of being diverse. 

We have labeled this section "The Flip 
Side", for it showcases students away from 
the confines of classrooms, doing what 
they do best . . . being different!

Adventures In Living 

By John MacMillan 

Juniors and seniors, especially, al- 
ways get the itch. 
After living in residence halls for 
four semesters, the novelty soon 
wears thin and the seductive freedoms of 
'off-campus living begin to beckon. 

Being a college town, Amherst is well- 
equipped to handle the swarm of students 
seeking apartments. 

Located in and around Amherst are ap- 
proximately 15 apartment complexes 
(ranging from Brittany Manor to North- 
wood apartments) and hundreds of houses 
specifically suited to meet student's tight 
budgets and particular tastes. 

In Sunderland is the traditional-style 
Cliffside apartment complex (appropriate- 
ly named for its location on the edge of the 
towering, tree-flanked Sunderland cliffs), 
the Sunderland apartments and the more 
modern Squire Village. And, to cut trans- 
portation costs, PVTA has bus stops set up 
throughout the area. 

Among the liberties and priviledges en- 
joyed by off-campus students are: good 
food, self-sufficiency, independence from 
constrictive dorm policies and, more im- 
portantly, peace and quiet. 

Yet, total self-sufficiency also brings 
with it a number of added responsibilities, 
namely paying rent, gas, telephone, and 
electric bills on time, every month. 

Nonetheless, living away from the con- 
fines of a dormitory can be a stimulating 
experience; one that offers students a 
wealth of opportunities not found on

Greek Homecoming: Mardi Gras Frolics 

by Kris Bruno 

If, at some point last se- 
mester, you were a bit sur- 
prised to see some eccentric 
characters walking around 
by the Greek Area and 
tiiought that perhaps you 
were crazy, don't be 
alarmed. It wasn't the take- 
over of the Earth by aliens 
from outer space, but the 
Greek Homecoming week- 
end, a crazy and fun-filled 
event for the many brothers, 
sisters, and pledges that 
took part in it. 

Highlighting the return of 
alumni, the Greeks dressed 
up in outrageous costumes 
and participated in a pa- 
rade, where each house 
made a float and portrayed 
their favorite characters, 
like Frank-n-Furter from 
Rocky Horror, and the Star 
Trek crew.

A Letter To The Graduates 

I am pleased to offer my congratulations and best wishes to every graduate in the Class of 1988. Your diploma from the 
University will mean many things to you in the years ahead, and for each of you it will come to mean different things. What- 
ever differences there may be, I hope that the education it represents will provide each of you with the skills and knowledge 
you will need in the years ahead. 

The Index this year is focusing on the impressive variety of people who make up our campus community. The Amherst 
campus is, I believe, a mosaic in which individuals bring to the community unique combinations of talent, style, and values. 
From a distance, these differences may appear to diminish and blend together. However, on closer inspection, we recognize that 
these differences are a major source of vitality and strength for the University. Indeed, our individual differences are as 
important as any common goals or ambitions we may share. 

As the largest public institution of higher education in New England, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst provides 
students with the opportunity to study many different subjects. But more than that, it offers everyone the chance to meet a wide 
variety of people. An essential part of the education we offer involves this opportunity to meet and interact with a broad 
spectrum of people. The social value of this experience is extremely difficult to measure. 

Many parts of our campus will remain as you remember them. When you return in the years ahead, you will probably see 
buildings, trees, and paths that you remember. What you may not see are all the people who have made major contributions to 
your education. Because it is people that make education happen, the unique contribution each of you has made to our campus is 
extremely valuable.

President Knap Addresses Students 

Congratulations to the Class of 1988. As you look back on 
your years at the University, you can take justifiable 
pride in your accomplishments. Each of you knows the 
extent to which your efforts have been dependent on family, 
friends, mentors and classmates, but in the final analysis it is a 
personal achievement that has brought you to this point in 
your lives and careers. 

Completion of your college education marks an important 
step on your journey, both as individuals and as a community. 
It has surely been accompanied by some travail and humor. 
You are entitled to pause for a moment and consider, perhaps 
with some amazement, the passage that has been completed. 
You, of all people, are a college graduate. This is a time worth 

savoring before moving on to new challenges and 

The University of Massachusetts is so varied and complex 
an institution that its essence cannot be easily captured in any 
one experience, but you may be sure that you have left a mark 
on us at least as profound as our influence on you. Each 
graduating class both creates and inherits a part of our 

Again, congratulations to the Class of 1988.

As Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Dennis 
L. Madson oversees all aspects of non-academic 
student life, including residence hall maintenance, 
health care and various student counseling centers. 
Overall, this may seem like an extremely over- 
whelming task. But, Madson takes it all in stride. 

This year, he and members of his office headed a 
group of students, faculty and staff who attempted 
to incorporate some aspects of Ernest Boyer's 
book. The Undergraduate Experience in America, 
to local campus life. 

One idea that grew out of this experiment pro- 
vided students with the opportunity to invite facul- 
ty members to dinner at one of the three campus 
dining commons. 

Madson's office also put a greater emphasis on 
combatting alcohol abuse and raising the academic 
profile and cultural differentiation of the incoming 
freshmen class. 

As the Dean of Students for the past 27 years, 
William Field has dealt with all kinds of student 
emergencies, ranging from short-term loans to 
family crisises. The office of the Dean of Stu- 
dents is also responsible for academic remind- 
ers, such as Add/Drop, to students and 

This year, Dean Field's office closed the fra- 
ternity BKO and tightened financial aid as the 
result of a cut in the school's operating budget.

Wihm-. The Game Depicts College Experience 

By Katie Dunican 

What begins and ends at Whitmore, has 
students going in all directions at the same 
time, graduates students with an average 
of 2.0 or better, contains lots of frustration 
and, in spite of all, is lots of fun? An edu- 
cation at the University of Massachusetts? 
No, but UMass: The Game! 

Rob Sears and Leedara Gerstein, stu- 
dents in the Masters of Business Adminis- 
tration program for Operations Manage- 
ment, invented "UMass: The Game" as an 
independent study project. They will re- 
ceive their degrees in May 1988. 

They first decided that they would like 
to engineer a game in the spring of 1987. 
Graham Morbey, a professor of Opera- 
tions Management, agreed to sponsor the 

"We wanted a unique product. We did 
not want another trivia game to slap the 
UMass logo on, we did not want another 

Monopoly to slap the UMass logo on," 
said Gerstein. 

Sears said that they wanted a game that 
would represent as much of the UMass 
population as possible. 

"The most common experience is the 
campus itself — going around to different 
buildings. Everyone has to deal with Whit- 
more, where it all begins and ends," said 

"Everyone has different schedules. The 
flow of students is in every direction at the 
same time," he said. 

The game is simple and fun. Each player 
is dealt five cards which represent build- 
ings on the campus map, the playing board 
was designed by Barnabas Kane, a gradu- 
ate of the university. After entering each 
building, the player returns to Whitmore 
and rolls the dice for grades. To graduate, 
the average grade must be at least a 2.0. 

Obstacles and advantages included in 
the game are: "doors locked" signs, dem- 

Photo by Renee Gallant 

onstrations, towed cars, catching the Cam- 
pus Shuttle, and riding bikes, all everyday 

"UMass: The Game" is on sale for 
$9.95 at the University Store, H.L. Childs 
& Son in Northampton, and Johnson's 
Bookstore in Springfield. The Alumni Of- 
fice is informing alumni about the game, 
according to Sears. 

Sears and Gerstein bought the various 
pieces of the game from individual manu- 
facturers and put the 3,000 existing copies 
of the game together themselves. Of these 
copies, 400 sold in the first month. 

Sears says that the best publicity is 

"The game is timeless. It could have 
come out four years ago, or four years 
from now. The only thing fixed in time is 
the map, and that will only change if they 
put up a new building somewhere." Sears

Preparations for the Hotel, Restaurant 
and Travel Administrator's 13th annual 
Career Day began in September when 
HRTA faculty members appointed Vic- 
toria Scuorzo and Nicholas de Lavalette 
as co-chairpersons for the prestigious in- 
formation forum. Scuorzo and de Lava- 
lette were chosen for their dedication to 
campus activities and for their constant 
visibility in their respective departments. 

The planning continued through Octo- 
ber when (with the aid of their advisors, 
Dr. Jeff Fernsten and Dr. Stevenson 
Fletcher) Scuorzo and de Lavalette elect- 
ed 1 1 people to chair six committees. Prior 
to selection, these commitee heads had to 
exhibit an enthusiastic involvement in past 
Career Day festivities. With the help of 
posters and announcements at lectures, 
over 100 people signed up to work at Ca- 
reer Day. 

On the night befor-e Career Day, a panel 
discussion was held with UMass graduates 
currently involved with personnel manage- 
ment in the hotel industry. They talked 
about what their expectations were as se- 
niors in college and how their lives 
changed once they started work in the 

When Career Day arrived on Feb. 17, 
six months of hard work, scrutinous prepa- 
ration and expectations paid off. This year 
more people and companies than ever be- 
fore participated in Career Day, and the 
Campus Center Auditorium was filled to 
capacity with tables from 45 recruiting 

Career Day benefitted everyone. Stu- 
dents who worked Career Day not only 
gained great resume material, but they 
also garnered additional respect from the 
HRTA faculty. 

"It's great experience for a lot of us for 
what we're looking for in our jobs and our 
careers," Scuorzo said. 

Basically, students were encouraged to 
work in areas that best suited their inter- 
ests. Students who coordinated publicity, 
for example, were planning to go into sales 
and marketing. The kitchen and banquet 

committees were involved in the food and 
beverage aspects of the industry. 

"I've gained not only leadership quali- 
ties, but I've really had to organize. I've 
had to bring a lot of things that I've 
learned in the past together. Everything 
came into play. Career Day is a great op- 
portunity to test yourself before you fail in 
the real world," said Scuorzo. 

Career Day fell in conjunction with the 
senior interviewing period, giving students 
a perfect opportunity to make contacts 
with executives from major hotel chains. 
Most of the recruiters at Career Day were 
Human Resource representatives. Seniors 
were able to talk informally with the repre- 
sentatives to find out information about a 
company, including facts about benefits, 
hours and the potential for growth in a

Underclassmen also benefit from Ca- 
reer Day. When Scuorzo was a sopho- 
more, for example, she was able to get a 
summer job through a contact she made 
with a Marriott representative. 

"In the long run it has really benefitted 
me because that contact turned into an 
internship and then it turned into a job," 
she said. 

The recruiters came to test the market; 
to see what was going on in the students' 
minds; to find out where their loyalties 
were, and inquire about what companies 
the students were interested in. According 
to Scuorzo, "because we're supposed to be 
the managers of the future, they're really 
checking to keep their Human Resource 
Departments abreast of everything."

The Most Popular 
Class On The Campus 

by Kris Bruno 

He stands alone on the lecture platform, dressed as if 
he were going to go mountain climbing or weed the 
garden. In front of about 600 students with a small 
microphone in his hand, he calmly observes the activity 
in the auditorium — the people wandering up and down 
the aisles looking for seats, the constant flow of chatter, 
the shuffling of papers as students get settled. 

Before he begins to lecture, he slowly dims the lights. 
A hush falls over this chaotic group and all sit, pens 
poised. He begins to speak. 

". . . now, it is important to realize that all lumps in 
your bodies are not tumors. I'm telling you this because 
many of you will discover lumps in your bodies this 
weekend. There's no need to panic." Laughter. 

This is one's introduction to Microbiology 160, Biolo- 
gy of Cancer and AIDS, taught by Prof. Albey Reiner. It 
is one of the most talked about classes on campus, and 
every semester some 800-900 students register, and 350 
must be turned away. And yet, Mahar Auditorium is still 
packed to full capacity every Monday, Wednesday and 
Friday (with many people sitting in the aisles or along 
the edge of the stage). 

It can be a bit puzzling to understand why so many 
students sign up for the class. It isn't an easy course. 
There's a good amount of reading to do, and the exams 
are extremely challenging. It isn't even a required 
course, but instead is taken as an elective. 

Albey looks at it this way. "How many of you," he 
asked one day, "would take this course if it were "Biolo- 
gy of Leprosy"?" Aside from a bit of laughter, no one 

Albey reasons that since most people have known 
someone with cancer, and since AIDS has become such a 
hot topic, the lecture material is pertinent to all. 
And yet, it is Albey's own personal approach to the 
subject that enhances the class and infuses students 
with a greater desire to learn. 

Microbiology 160 is not your average science 
course. Mixed with discussions of DNA and AZT 
are those of karma and Tibetan medicine. Albey 
gives many sides to the story, and his broad per- 
spective widens those of his students as well. Of 
course, some of what he says may sound a bit far- 
fetched, but as Caroline Miraglia, sophomore civil 
engineering major, puts it, ". . . because Albey is so 
obviously intelligent — he has so many credentials 
(he has studied at Princeton, Harvard, and Ox- 
ford) — and he is so respected and interesting, it 
makes what he is saying a lot more believable." 

But perhaps what makes the class as wonderful 
as it is is the fact that, as one student puts it, 
"Albey has heart." Many students crowd around 
him after class for advice or just to talk briefly. 
But, his inspiring effect on his students was best 
observed when, after the last lecture, Albey's class, 
myself included, gave the man a standing ovation 
for a job well done.

WicSe Beyond 
Their Peers 

By Richard Garcia 

An innovation offered by the School of 
Education, this year, was academic peer 
counseling for their students. 

Dr. Clement Seldin, director of the Stu- 
dent Advising Corps., organized the pro- 
gram. Fall semester, because of the need 
for more advisors in the department. 

The students who make up the program 
are mostly undergraduate education ma- 
jors who are members of the honor society. 
Kappa Delta Pi. Chosen by Dr. Seldin, 
they receive two credits per semester for 
their services. 

The student advisors work directly with 
undergraduate education majors. Accord- 
ing to Paige Zarganes, a student advisor, 
"Many need advice figuring out the pre- 
requisites of the major. Others need advice 
to determine if a course they are interested 
in taking satisfies major requirements." 
When students come to the center with 
such problems, the student advisor usually 
refers the student to the proper director. 

That the School of Education is pleased 
with the student advisors, because the 
work they perform is valuable, was demon- 
strated when the -school took all of the 
student advisors to dinner at the end of 
Fall semester. 

Zarganes said that the program has 
been such a success that she does not see 
how the School of Education can do with- 
out it.

Freshman Major Night: They Came To Eat, 
And Deceived Food For Thought . . . 

By Brian Mahoney and Kris Bruno 

The College of Engineering is celebrat- 
ing its 41st anniversary with 2,023 fulltime 
students, 200 graduate students and about 
120 fulltime faculty members. The college 
consists of five departments offering six 
undergraduate degrees. They are chemi- 
cal, civil, electrical, computer systems, in- 
dustrial, and mechanicai engineering. 

Today freshman engineering majors 
are required to take basically the same 
courses. At the end of their first year, the 
students are called upon to decide their 

To help them, the Joint Student Engi- 
neering Society holds a freshman major 
night, in which each department sets up an 
informational display booth. Freshman 
students also have the chance to speak to 
representatives from the five departments, 
both student members and faculty. Ac- 
cording to Asst. Dean Nancy Hellman, 
the freshman nights are usually successful 
and "a lot of fun". 

The freshmen themselves also appreci- 
ate the value of the event. Chiang Ma-Teh 
remarked, "Well, I already had an idea

(SWE aides women engineers 

By Kris Bruno and Scott Raposo 

Picture being a freshman majoring in 
engineering. Not only does one have to get 
used to college life, which is hard in itself, 
but the courses one has to take are taxing. 
Aside from English 112, other required 
classes include physics, calculus, chemis- 
try, and Engineering 103-104. Taking one 
of the aforementioned courses on its own 
can be tough, but the combination is de- 
manding and difficult. 

Now, imagine (along with adjusting to 
UMass and taking these courses) having 
to face the stigma of being one of only five 
women in a typical class. 

Says Lisa Amstein, a freshman major- 
ing in computer systems engineering, 
"(male) students resent you just because 
you're a girl — they think you don't know 
just what you're doing." 

Problems that Amstein has to face be- 
cause of her sex are common, and for this 

reason, there is the Society of Women En- 
gineers, or SWE. SWE is an international 
organization "designed to progress the ad- 
vancement of women in engineering pro- 
fessions," says UMass chapter president 
Tracey Brennan. 

The group, founded in 1949, provides 
support services like the Big/Little Sister 
program and social activities for "women 
engineers to communicate with each oth- 
er," says Brennan. 

Only 19% of engineering majors are 
women, so to improve this rate, some of 
the group's 75 members have gone back to 
their high schools to talk about the UMass 
engineering program to interested 

SWE will continue to grow and aid 
women engineers in the future, and will 
hopefully serve to lessen the intimidating 
and tension-filled competition found in the 
College of Engineering.

In November of 1985, the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, sponsored the 
First National Nursing Conference on Vi- 
olence Against Women. This conference 
proved to be the origin of the Nursing 
Network on Violence Against Women 
(NNVAW). The network is aimed at re- 
sponding to the needs of women who expe- 
rience violence and abuse in their lives. It 
attempts to accomplish this by conducting 
forums for nurses and other health person- 
nel to meet, submit ideas, and develope 
support for its programs. 

One of these programs is based at the 
University of Massachusetts' Division of 
Nursing and is headed by Christine King, 
RN.Ed.D., Univ. of Mass/ Amherst, along 
with Josephine Ryan, RN.D.N.Sc, Bos- 
ton University. 

Credited with obtaining the funding for 
the program from the Area Health Educa- 
tion Council, they also feel the program 
will educate nurses to greater effectiveness 
at assessing and providing for the needs of 
battered women. 

The training program last spring edu- 
cated over 150 nurses from 14 different 
area hospitals. In eight hours of instruc- 
tion and experiential work, the purpose is 
to dispel myths about battered women, 
which are frequently held by members of 
society, including nurses. 

Drs. King and Ryan also instruct nurses 
in how to increase their ability to assess, 
intervene, document and refer instances of 
abuse in the lives of women clients. A fu- 
ture objective of the program will be to 
educate patients about their ability to take 
control of their own lives and to avoid

North submits shreds 
of information 

■Kjr arine Lt. Col. Oliver L. North, a key official in plans to 
-'■'-*■ finance Nicaraguan rebels with money from arms sales to 
Iran, was questioned extensively during the summer months con- 
cerning the nature of his involvement in these activities. North 
denied that Congress, the President, or the Vice-President had 
any knowledge of these activities. 

One of the major issues which was brought up at the hearings 
were the shredding of secret documents detailing covert opera- 
tions in Central America and the Middle East; it was maintained 
that they were shredded for the protection of those who were not 

Besides North, others associated with the Iran-Contra affair 
were: North's one time boss, former national security advisor, 
Robert C. McFarlane, Rear Adm. John M. Poindexter, and the 
much publicized secretary to North, Fawn Hall. 

For as many people who were opposed to North's activities, 
there was an equal, if not greater amount in full support of him. 
This was evident by the size of the crowd trying to get into the 
hearings and the stacks of supportive telegrams awaiting him 
inside the courtroom.

breast. A lump was detected during a rou-

her surgery, the doctors removed Mrs.

Increasing Awareness In The Age Of Aids 

Intense fear is a response many 
people have when it comes to the 
topic of AIDS in our country. Because 
of the varying information available as 
to how the disease is spread, many peo- 
ple have become paranoid about casual 
contact, public facilities, and even mos- 
quito bites. Education is our best de- 

fense against this paranoia so that we 
may learn to discriminate against the 
virus, not its victims. 

It has been six years since America 
first heard of the mysterious immunity- 
robbing disease called AIDS. Although 
the duration of the disease varies, no 
one recovers. So far, AIDS has killed 

nearly 25,000 Americans, and Presi- 
dent Reagan has procaimed it "Pub- 
lic Health Enemy #1." 

Millions of dollars have been 
poured into research and education 
to begin to lift the shroud of mystery 
that surrounds the epidemic. 

In the next four years 155,000 
lives are expected to be claimed by 
the disease. There is varied specula- 
tion as to who can catch the virus, as 
it is no longer restricted to those in 
high risk groups such as those with 
multiple sex partners, intraveneous 
drug users, and homosexuals. There 
are now children and new-born in- 
fants acquiring the disease. 

Controlling the spread of AIDS is 
difficult because there are only theo- 
ries and research data, not extensivly 
proven facts, to explain how AIDS is 

It is not just a pessimistic opinion 
that there will not be a cure for 
AIDS anytime in the near future, it 
is a realistic statement.

James Baldwin's death 
saddens admirers 

T ames Baldwin, one of the most dynamic writers of our 

generation, died Nov. 30 of stomach cancer in St. Paul 
duVence, in the south of France. He was 64 years old. 

Baldwin, born in Harlem, 1924, participated early in the 
fight for integration and civil rights. His stirring works, includ- 
ing Go Tell It On the Mountain {19521), and Notes of a Native 
Son (1955), describe the incredible sociological toll of racism 
and discrimination. 

Over the last 40 years, he moved back and forth between the 
United States and France. His "foster" country, France, made 
him a Commander in the French Legion of Honor, only the 
second black person to receive that honor. 

He taught literature at the five colleges in 1983, and, later, 
became a faculty member in the University of Mass-Amherst 
English department, teaching one semester a year. He was 
greatly admired by his students and peers. 

He was writing the biography of his friend, Martin Luther 
King Jr. when he died.

Historical Summit. A step towards peace? 

Two of the world's "Great Commu- 
nicators," the U.S.S.R.'s General 
Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev, and 
U.S. President Ronald Reagan met in 
December for a history making 

Gorbachev arrived in Washington 
D.C., Dec. 7, with his elegant wife 
Raisa, to negotiate the signing of a 
treaty that would eliminate all of the 
United State's and Soviet Union's 
combined 2,611 Intermediate Range 
Nuclear Missiles. 

The Intermediate Nuclear Forces 
(INF) treaty not only calls for the de- 
struction of these missiles, which have 
a range of 300-400 miles, but also for- 
bids the building, testing, or deploying 
of any new ones. 

Although each leader expressed dif- 
ferent concerns (Gorbachev hoping to 
hear some "new words on their side" 
and Reagan expressing concern over 
violations of the treaty) the treaty was 
signed Dec. 8 at the White House. 

While meetings between their hus- 

bands occurred, Mrs. Reagan and 
Mrs. Gorbachev conversed over cof- 
fee at the White House. Although, it 
had been rumored that the fashion- 
able first ladies didn't get along, there 
was no sign of this during the summit. 
Mrs. Gorbachev also made a short vis- 
it to the Jefferson Memorial and was 
given a whirlwind tour of the capital 

Amidst the excitement and publici- 
ty of the leaders' third summit meet- 
ing, several incidents occurred that 
demonstrated that not all of the coun- 
try was caught up in the charisma of 
the Soviet leader and his wife. Two 
hundred thousand people marched on 
Capital Hill, Dec. 7, demanding the 
release of detained Soviet Jews, and 
the cease of oppression. During the 
treaty signing ceremony, hundreds of 
people participated in Anti-Soviet 
demonstrations and other related 
struggles. Mere blocks away, picketers 
were arrested for marching and pro- 
testing illegally within 500 feet of the 

Soviet embassy. 

Others, seemed entranced with the 
new Soviet leader and his wife. Gorba- 
chev was even made Time magazine's 
"Man of the Year." However, this de- 
crease in arms is insignificant when 
the entire picture of remaining weap- 
ons is examined.

UMass Celebrates 125th 

President Knapp Says School Is

"Let it be remembered that the College has been established to continue forever, that 
good name of Massachusetts is inseparably united with it, and that its reputation ought 
to be as dear and sacred to every citizen of the state as that of his most intimate friend." 

That's William S. Clark, third president of 
Massachusetts Agricultural College, speaking to the 
first faculty members and graduates of "Mass Aggie" 
in 1867. 

His motto back then was simply "Do it," and here he was 
urging state legislators and citizens to protect the good 
name of the state and the newly-founded agricultural 

Exactly 125 years later, the University of Massachusetts 
is celebrating its birthday "on the threshold of greatness," 
according to university president David Knapp, with three 

Students skate on the campus pond in February of 1937.

thriving campuses and an enrollment to- 
taling 41,164. 

Knapp kicked off the celebrations with 
a speech to members of a noontime convo- 
cation, which also included appearances 
by Chancellor Joseph Duffey and John 
Lederle, who served as the school's presi- 
dent from 1960 to 1970. 

In his speech, Knapp said "We are on 
the threshold of greatness, but that last 
mile may be the most difficult. We must 
and will convince the people to go the last 
mile. We must be second to none." 

The university owes its inception to the 
1862 signing of the Morrill Land Grant by 
President Abraham Lincoln, which pro- 
vided states with land on which to build 
state-owned colleges and universities. 

The idea of constructing the college in 
western Massachusetts was advocated by 
many local towns in 1862, but it was Am- 
herst that fought most diligently, voting, 
during its Jan. 25, 1864 town meeting, to 
raise taxes in order to host the new school. 
The town raised $50,000 and on Oct. 2, 
1867, Massachusetts Agricultural College 
opened its doors on a 310-acre stretch of 
land to 36 students and three faculty mem- 
bers: Henry Goodell, Charles Goessman 
and Levi Stockbridge. 

The school was commissioned to teach 
the "practical arts," primarily home eco- 
nomics, mathematics, English, German, 
French, botany and zoology. 

The only buildings on campus at the 
time were North College and Old South

Students, most of whom were natives of 
Franklin County, were awakened by a bell 
every morning at 6 and ushered to break- 
fast by 7. A second bell at 8:45 then direct- 
ed students to a brief prayer session and 
bells at 9, 10, and 1 1 signaled the start of 
classes. At noon, students participated in 
mandatory military exercises and at 12:30

were permitted to eat lunch. 

By 1923, the military exercises were 
dropped and the college had expanded to 
710 acres — 515 of fields, 135 for experi- 
mental purposes and 60 for the construc- 
tion of buildings. 

Up until the 1930s, the college re- 
mained a relatively small, intimate school, 
where freshmen were ordered to salute 
their professors and seniors in public. In 
1931, the school changed its name to Mas- 
sachusetts State College, and, in 1947, 
adopted its current name. 

The university experienced its most rap- 
id period of growth after World War II 
when the newly-enacted GI Bill provided 
veterans with educational benefits to at- 
tend school. By 1954, the university's pop- 
ulation surpassed 4,000 students. 

In 1965, the university opened its sec- 
ond campus in Boston, and six years later, 
in 1971, the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School in Worcester. 

Today, the university's Amherst campus 
operates on a budget of $327.3 million, 
consists of 1,227 acres of land, 423 build- 
ings and has an enrollment of 19,853 un- 
dergraduates and 6,833 graduate students. 

Some famous alumni of the university 
include basketball superstar Julius Erving; 
author Paul Theroux and actor Bill Cosby.

Street Battles Rage 
In Gaza City 

Tear gas, rubber bullets, stones, metal bars and live ammu-

between Israelis and members of the Palestine Liberation 
Organization over control of the Gaza Strip intensified in 

Nearly 30 deaths and 200 injuries have been reported since 
the unrest began on Dec. 9. So far, almost 2,000 rioters have 
been arrested. 

Officials have blamed the violent unrest on despair and 
frustration among the Israeli population, particularly those in 
refugee camps. Israelis have refused to negotiate with the 
PLO, claiming the group commits acts of terrorism. Palestin- 
ians, however, pledged their allegiance to the PLO, naming the 
group as their representative. 

Palestinian children have also become embroiled in the 
fighting. At times, children have been observed throwing 
stones at patrolling soldiers and building roadblocks. They

Students Hold Sit-in 
In New Africa House 

A five-day occupation of the New Africa House came to an 
end on Feb. 17. The student sit-in, involving about 150 
minority students, was in response to racial problems on 
the UMass campus. 

On Feb. 7, after a party injthe Sylvan residential area, five 
white males allegedly started a fight with two black males in a 
racially motivated attack. This incident and the World Series 
riot in Southwest in 1986 were cited as two examples of the 
existence of racial predjudice on campus. 

The students who occupied the house submitted a list of 
demands to Chancellor Joseph Duffey. Some of the demands 
included: recruiting more minority students and faculty to 
UMass, and drafting a change in the code of Student Conduct 
regarding racial violence or harrassment. 

A two- day moratorium followed the sit-in during which 
lectures, films, and other educational material were made

Gold Medal 

Even if you didn't watch the 1988 
Winter Olympics, held in the Sadd- 
ledome in Calgary, Canada stories 
surrounding them were hard to miss. 

Bonnie Blair, a speed skater from 
Champaign, 111. won a gold medal in the 
500-meter race on Feb. 22. Her .02 second 
margin over East Germany set a new 
world's record. 

Dan Jansen, whose sister died the morn- 
ing of his 500-meter speed skate, fell dur- 
ing both the 500 and 1000 meter races. 

Alpine skier, Alberto Tomba, whose fa- 
ther promised him a Ferrari if he won aj 
gold metal, won two. Upon receiving his 
second gold metal, he said it as the second 
time in his life he had cried; - the first time 
he cried was when he won the first medal. 
The Italian La Bomba ( The Bomb) said 
that maybe if Katarina Witt didn't win a 
gold in the future skating competition, she 
could have one of his. 

The women's figure skating competition 
turned out to be an exciting and surprising 
event. Debi Thomas from San Jose and 
Katarina Witt both chose to skate to the 
opera "Carmen" with different 

Katarina skated a "safe" performance 
and beat out Thomas, who encountered

met with intense controversy among students at the 

Two days after Zinser's induction, students gathered outside 
the university with signs reading "Honk for Deaf Prez Now," 
and "Zinser, Please Quit Now." The students considered the 
appointment to be in poor taste and were petitioning the 
school's administration to hire a deaf president. 

Three days after she took the job, Zinser, who was vice- 
chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro 
prior to receiving the president's post, resigned.

Senseless Killing 
Raises Debate 

"D od Matthews, arrested and charged with 
-'■^ clubbing Shaun Ouillette to death, was 
brought to trial in March. The court de- 
termined that Matthews lured Ouillette into a 
secluded area after school and beat him to 
death. Matthews reportedly wanted to see what 
it was like to kill someone. 

Although Matthews was only 14 at the time 
of the killing, he was tried as an adult. His plea 
to the court was not guilty by reason of insanity. 
An element in his defense was his history of 
mental instability and a prescription drug called 
Retalin, used to control hyperactivity. Psycholo- 
gists argued, however, that the drug does not 
produce symptoms that would make someone 
want to kill. 

After Matthews had killed Ouillette, he 
brought a couple of his friends to see the body. 
One of thee friends then wrote an anonymous 
letter to the police, identifying Matthews as the

Reagan Deploys Troops 

More than 3,000 U.S. combat troops arrived at Palmerola 
Air Force Base, in Honduras, on March 17 in what was 
called an "emergency deployment readiness exercise" or- 
dered by President Reagan. The deployment, formally ordered on 
the 1 6th, was meant to show Hondurans that the United States 
stands behind their country if the government decides to invade 

Prior to the deployment, there had been gunfire between the 
rebels and Sandinistas for three days, but very little movement by 
either side. It was alledged that Nicaraguan troops had crossed 
into Honduras in pursuit of Nicaraguan rebels, but Nicaraguan 
officials maintained that it forces did not cross the border. 

President Reagan's response to the country's plea for help was 
seen to be dangerous for the United States because it created 
what some termed "a volatile situation." Secretary of State 
George P. Shultz assured citizens that troops were in no danger 
and would be kept away from battle zones.

Protesting The 
Alcohol Ban 

Anew policy prohibiting alcohol 
from outdoor events at UMass 
sparked debate among students 
about the fairness of the prohibition. 
Students believed the policy would en- 
courage students to become closet 
drinkers and drink in shorter periods of 
time, prior to events. 

A coalition of students protested 
twice during the semester. They were 
not only angry with the loss of their 
right to drink, but also because the poli- 
cy was drawn up without any student 

After the first rally on the steps of the 
Student Union, 1500 students gathered 
in front of the Whitmore Administra- 
tion Building armed with signs, flags, 
and a six-foot Bartles and James bottle 
with " Joe Duffey, once again, we thank 
you for your support" scrawled across 
the front of it. 

The next demonstration was held on 
Chancellor Duffey's front lawn after a

More than 500 students sat on Duffey's 
lawn singing and chanting: "All we are 
saying is give booze a chance";"Joe's 

got to go", and "Just say no to Joe". 
All in all the protests were peaceful 
and no major incidents occurred.

a result of a several month investigation 
into the illegal sale of cocaine and alcohol 
at the house. 

Those who were at the house on April 7 
were questioned and released. One person 
was taken into custody for possesion and

Reagan, Gorbachev 
Make Progress 

President Ronald Reagan and Soviet 
Premier Mikhail S. Gorbachev both ap- 
peared upbeat after ending four days of talks 
on May 31 in their fourth summit meeting. 

Although the two leaders parted at an im- 
passe on a major nuclear arms agreement and 
with opposing views on a variety of human 
rights issues, the two considered their talks 

But, after smiling for photographers and 
wishing each other well, the leaders held sep- 
arate press conferences in which each criti- 
cized the other's policies. 

Nevertheless, the two vowed to continue to 
strive for the signing of a major arms reduc- 
tion treaty. 

"We can look with optimism on future ne- 
gotiations," he said. "The conversations are 
still going on, and I say progress is still being

Noriega Refuses US Offer

eneral Manuel Antonio Noriega, the Panamanian military leader, on May 
25 refused to accept a U.S. proposal that would drop the drug-related 

charges brought against him if he relin- 
quished power. 

Noriega apparently made his decision after 
early-morning talks between him and U.S. 
envoy, Michael G. Kozak, broke down. 

"At the final moment in negotiations, Nor- 
iega would not carry through with the ar- 
rangements his representatives had negotiat- 
ed," said Secretary of State George Shultz, in 
a news conference held that afternoon. 

U.S. Undersecretary of State Michael Ar- 
macost said the talks broke down when Nor- 
iega, after considering the reaction of his sub- 
ordinates in the Panamanian Defense Force, 
refused to negotiate. 

Apparently, Noriega was afraid that gen- 
erals of the Force would take up arms against 

The leader's action left the Reagan admin- 
istration with nothing to show for three 
months of imposing severe pressure on Nor- 
iega in an attempt to oust him from power.

Oh! So Close 

By Susan Hope 

The impossible became closer to the 
possible on a cold Saturday afternoon last 
November when the UMass Women's 
Soccer team defeated Central Florida in 
the NCAA semi-finals. This 2-1 victory 
enabled the team to advance to the 
NCAA championship game, after five 
straight years in the Final Four 

But, that very next day, number one 
seeded North Carolina shattered the 
dreams of the valiant Nfinutewomen and 
their legion of supporters. 

The Minutewomen entered the Final 
Four with a 19-1 overall record, culminat- 
ing a remarkable season that included im- 
pressive victories over UConn, Boston 
College, and Harvard. Then, the dreams 
of these twenty-three women turned into a 
reality as they squeaked by 7th - seeded 
Central Florida with a 2-1 victory. Finally, 
it was time for a repeat confrontation with 
top-ranked North Carolina. 

Over 6,000 die-hard soccer fans braved 
zero degree weather and crowded Warren 
McGuirk Alumni Stadium to witness this 
epic battle between two teams destined to 
fight for the championship trophy. 

During the first half of the game, the 
two teams remained at a deadlock, score- 
less at halftime. Then, early in the second 
half, the tide shifted when UNC captured 
the lone goal of the game. The goal was 
barely scored — trickling over the line and 
cleared by the goal tender. The UNC Tar 
Heels had won. 

So the dream faded, but the spirit, ex- 
citement and accomplishments of these 
women cannot go unnoticed. There were, 
for example, only eight goals scored 
against UMass, four of these during the 
regular season. Even more impressive is 
the fact that seven players represented 
UMass on the All-Tournament team. 
They were: Captain Monica Seta, Cathy 
Spence, Carolyn Micheel, Kristen 
Bowsher, Cathy Cassady and Carla De- 
santis. Debbie Belkin was selected to both 
the tournament and as most valuable de- 
fensive player. Also, Coach Kalekeni Ban- 
da was named New England Women's In- 
tercollegiate Soccer Association 
Coach-of-the-Year for 1987. 

And so, the Minutewomen are second in 
the country. But, more importantly, their 
dedication and pride has made them a 
class act, an act that came close . . . Oh, so

There was more than ice breaking at 
Parson's Field on that frigid day in late 

With httJe sunshine and very few wit- 
nesses, the University of Massachusetts' 
football team finally cracked their seem- 
ingly unending losing streak on Nov. 22 by 
defeating Northeastern University, 27-7, 
in their final contest. But, even with that 
win secured tightly under their belts, the 
team ended their season with a 3-8 record. 

It seemed that from the start of season 
action on Sept. 1 1 . lady luck had her back 
turned to the Minutemen. 

The team lost their first three contests 
against U Maine, Richmond and James 

During the latter, UMass spotted James 
Madison a 2 1 -point lead and was unable to 
come back. The final result was a 21-15 
JMU victory over the Minutemen; a loss 
that marked the first time UMass went 

Rhode Island, the team's next opponent, 
received a severe spanking from the Min- 
utemen on Oct. 3. The team demolished 
URI, 42-7, and then moved on to face the 
Universit> of Delaware's Blue Hens. 

The Hens, however, proved to be too 
strong for the .Minutemen's tight defensive 
line. The\ defeated the team, 37-34. 

On that day. UMass turned the ball 
over nine times, including five intercep- 
tions thrown by quarterback Dave Palazzi. 
They also nearly dug their own grave by 
allowing the Hens to capture a 24-0 lead 
before the thousands of fans even found 
their scats. 

This loss gave the Minutemen a 1-4 
mid-season record. 

At this point, the season took a second 
severe nose dive. 

Save for an early win against Boston 
University, the Minutemen experienced 
losses against Holy Cross, Villanova and 
New Hampshire. 

Fortunately, the Northeastern Universi- 
ty Huskies proved to be an easy enemy, 
falling to UMass, 27-7. 

According to Coach Jim Reid, it was 10 
weeks of pent-up frustration that gave his 
team the power to beat the Huskies. 

"I'm just so proud of our guys, because 
they've had to pick themselves up every 
week, and it's been a real tough season," 
he said.

A Miracle Season 

By Susan Hope 

It was a miracle season indeed. 

The UMass Women's Field Hockey 
Team, once considered unlikely candi- 
dates for the Final Four, engaged in a 
brilliant late season surge to capture a 
close call NCAA playoff bid and a third 
place national ranking. 

The Minuiewomen were heavy playoff 
underdogs going into the regular season. 
Beating Ball State ( 1 -0) in the opener. The 
Minutewomen lost their next couple to 
Old Dominion and Virginia respectively, 
adding more gloom to the playoff picture. 

Two-thirds through the season the Min- 
utewomen were stuck with a meager 6-5-2 
record and the playoff picture grew pro- 
gressively dimmer. Ranked sixteenth in 
the nation, the last six games were must 
wins for the Minutewomen. 

With determination and an equal 
amount of motivation, the Minutewomen 
fought with all their might to gain some 
chance of a playoff invitation. Then, the 
late season surge began. The Minutewo- 
men ignited with a 5-0-1 run, including a 
tic with Boston University and victories 
over challenging opponents such as Dart- 
mouth, Rhode Island, Syracuse, and sixth- 
ranked Connecticut. The final triumph 
against Rutgers clinched the last playoff 
spot for the Minutewomen. 

With an 11-5-3 regular season record, 
which included eight games against divi- 
sion one teams, the Minutewomen inched 
from a sixteenth place national ranking to 
the tenth position^ resulting in a chance for 
a rematch with the University of New 
Hampshire in the second round of the 
NCAA playoffs. 

Having lost to UNH earlier in the sea- 
son, the Minutewomen slapped their oppo- 
nents with a 2-0 win that advanced UMass 
to a quarterfinal confrontation with unde- 
feated Providence College. 

Underdogs against the nation's number 
three team, the Minutewomen's fierce de- 
termination, under the leadership of co- 
cap.ains Lynn Carlson and Veronica Cole- 
man, overwhelmed Providence and the 
Minutewomen surprised field hockey en- 
thusiasts with a 4-1 win. This win ad- 
vanced UMass to the Final Four 

But in the first round of the tournament, 
the miracle would come to an end. In the 
NCAA Semi-finals, the Minutewomen 
were jolted back to reality with a 3-0 loss 
to North Carolina. Later that weekend, 
the Minutewomen were able to gain back 
respect with a remarkable 3-1 third-place 
win over Iowa. Before the tournament, 
Iowa publicly stated that UMass did not 
deserve to be in the Final Four. In a sense 
then, that was was a perfect ending to a 
miraculous near perfect season.

Minutemen iall 

by Susan Hope 

1987 marked the initiation of the Atlan- 
tic 10 Conference in men's collejge soccer. 
The UMass Minutemen hoped to make 
history by capturing the championship ti- 
tle in the league's first year. However, 
these dreams were anything but when the 
team finished with a mere 7-11-2 record. 

Humbling Boston University with a 2-0 
shutout, the Minutemen appeared deter- 
mined and able. But the first half of the 
season came up just short of dismal. In- 
cluding a 6-0 loss to Temple, the Minute- 
men's 3-5-1 record was a midpoint indica- 
tion of a troublesome year. 

The fifth annual Massachusetts Chal- 
lenge Cup, promising to bring exciting 
soccer action to UMass and its enthusias- 
tic soccer fans added more disappointment 
to the team's morale. Falling to both 
Brooklyn College and Loyola, the team 
was forced to enter the final half of the 
season with more determination. 

But, the second half of the season 
proved to be almost as disappointing. Con- 
cluding with a 2-1 hard-fought loss to 
fourth ranked Harvard, four more losses 
were added to an already mediocre season, 
forcing the team to give up any dreams of 
an Atlantic 10 tournament invitation. 

The 7-11-2 record, although not playoff 
material was nonetheless no indication of 
the Minutemen's talent, hardwork, and 
potential. With only four seniors leading 
the team and a slew of new freshmen re- 
cruits, the record does not reflect the 
gropus fine worth. The Minutemen consis- 
tently supplied a fine display of defense 
and a great amount of scoring 

Coach Jeff Gettler, head coach of the 
Minutemen for six years, may have ex- 
pected a more impressive record, but can 
be proud of the accomplishments of his 
team. Eight of the eleven losses were by 
one goal, and nine of the losses were to 
dominant national teams. "Wc had the 
hardest division one schedule in New En- 
gland. We aren't a top twenty team, but 
we worked welt together," said Gettler. 

Rounding out the season, senior co-Ciip- 
tain Andy Bing received first team All 
New England honors and proved himself 
one of the top senior players in the coun- 
try. Bing also earned the team's top scor- 
ing record. Sophomore Steven Cesnek re- 
ceived second team All New England 
awards, and freshman Peter McEvo> was 
voted Atlantic 10 freshman of the vear. 
Senior Matthew Cushing served as co-cap- 
tain of the Minutemen in both his junior 
and senior years.

A Spiker leaps into action to return an 
opponents' play, 

By Karen Wiilard 

Just look at that scoreboard! These 
Minutcwomcn surely have something to 
brag about. In each of the tournaments, 
Northeastern, New Haven, the Atlantic 
10, and the UMass Classic, the UMass 
volleyball team was victorious in every 
game but one. That sole defeat, resulted 
from the fierce strangle-hold that the 
Northeastern Huskies had on UMass' 
Spikers. Many of the wins achieved by the 
Minutewomen, like those over St. Bona- 
venture and Duquesne, were a breeze; oth- 
ers like Holy Cross and Providence were 
thrill-a-minute grudge matches to the 

Much of the Spikcr"s success can be at- 
tributed to the veteran talent in its ranks. 
Experienced players like Macy Guiliotis, 
Christine Mclinroc and Juliet Primer 
churned out singularly spectacular perfor- 
mances throughout the season. 

The outcome of the A- 10 tournament, 
which was fought against two tenacious 
teams (George Washington and Penn 
State) that had beaten UMass earlier in 
the season, was difficult to predict, but the 
Minutewomen went into it with an attitude 
of relaxed confidence. Our tempestuous 
titans stomped all over GWU only to be 
felted b> Penn State. At this playoff tour- 
nament, Zorayada Santiago had six aces 
against GWU and Karen Ferguson made 
the second team All-conference for the 
Atlantic 10.

The UMass men's swim team proudly 
boasts a 1 2-0 season. The competition was, 
for the most part, far from fierce. Most of 
the victories the Minutemen had were eas- 
ily attained, like the meets against North- 
eastern (154-63), Tufts (163-53) and 
ULowell (143-39)! 

To say that the Minutemen dominated 
the season is an understatement; after all, 
they won 41 straight dual meets and, by 
doing so, have broke the standing UMass 
record. Meets against teams such as the 
University of Vermont amounted to little 
more than practice for their triumphant 
clashes with Boston University and the : 
New Englands. 

The Minutemen saw strong individual 
achievements from , Dave Ehle, Roger 
Kennedy and Brian Mclver. In the East- 
ern Seaboard meet (which sadly marked 
the end of the teams' dominance), Brian 
took two individual finishes, racking up 
seven medals and two fourth place

The season started out well, but one 
couldn't say with total confidence which 
direction the season would head. By ex-

the University of Rhode Island and com- 
ing out of it with a 159-108 victory, the 
team's precarious morale received a major 

Team spirit and joint effort were impor- 
tant factors in the Minutewomen's suc- 
cesses. The sprint team (consisting of Me- 
gan McCamy, Patty Pike and Sue George) 
and the extraordinary diving group were 
powerful threats to division opponents. 
Free stylers Michelle Leary, Melissa Mc- 
Carthy and senior Kris Henson picked up 
impressive individual wins throughout the 

Strong efforts by many of the swimmers 
qualified them for the ECAC meet and 
prepared them for the New England's — 
where they finished fourth. This met their 
expectations, but surprisingly, their ability 
and achievements were just 26 points shy 
of the third place bronze. Beside coming 
out of the meet with a very impressive 
showing, the minutewomen boasted anoth- 
er highlight: their mentor. Bob Newcomb, 
was named the 1988 Coach of the Year.

A humble season 

By Susan Hope 

To the university's delight, the IJMass 
Men's Basketball team ripped into the sea- 
son with a 5-2 run, raising hopes and ex- 
pectations for a successful chase of an At- 
lantic 10 title. 

But, those hopes slowly dv\indled as the 
Minutemen, guided by Head Coach Ron 
Gerlufsen, won only five of the next nine- 
teen games. 

These losses, some close and some not- 
so-close, do not reflect the talent and po- 
tential of the Minutemen. Although the 
team persevered, they met with strong 
competition in the Atlantic 10 conference 
that dampened their chances of a tourna- 
ment title. 

The Minutemen finished with a 10-16 
regular season record that included two 
consecutive wins against Duquesnc and a 
thrilling triple overtime loss to Rhode Is- 
land. In the Atlantic 10 Tournament, 
UMass lost to Duquesne in the Tirst round. 
This loss not only ended the season for the 
Minutemen, but also any hopes for a mi- 
raculous come-back chase for the division 

Senior co-captains Lorenzo Sutton and 
Wilbert Hicks offered great contributions 
to the team's up and down season. Besides 
leading the team in scoring, Sutton hit 
many key baskets necessary to win close 
games and provided outstanding leader- 
ship throughout the season. Sixth-man 
Hicks offered UMass tremendous help off 
the bench and was a serious inside threat 
to opponents. 

Juniors David Brown and Duanc Chase 
also proved their worth to the team. 
Brown, besides a fine shooter, provided 
tough defense and established the role as 
an effective forward. Many times Chase 
brought the Cage to its feet with powerful 

The season, however frustrating to the 
team and it's devoted followers, included 
many highlights that will not soon be for- 
gotten. Former UMass star and Philadel- 
phia 76ers legend Julius "Dr. J" Erving 
returned to his alma mater as his college 
number 32 was retired and raised to the 
rafters in a packed-house ceremony. 

Sutton, capping off a striking four-year 
career with the Minutemen, broke the all- 
time UMass scoring record and was also 
named to the Atlantic 10, second team all- 
star squad. 

Finally, Ron Gerlufsen, head coach for 
five years, announced his resignation after 
the season concluded. Gerlufsen took con- 
trol of the Minutemen after five 20-loss 
seasons before his reign. 

"I feel that the time has come to explore 
different opportunities. I know that we are 
leaving the program in a stronger position 
than when we started," Gerlufsen said.

The Atlantic 10 pre-season coach's 
poll projected that the University of Mas- 
sachusetts Women's Basketball team 
would complete the season in seventh 
place. After a so-so season, seventh place 
is exacth where the Minutewomen landed. 

The Minutewomen fell 1-4 in the open- 
ing of a season that would to be not only 
inconsistent, but also frustrating to the 
Minutewomen and their followers. 

The Minutewomen startled their fans 
with a 78-65 upset against Vermont and a 
22 point win over William and Mary at the 
Maine invitational. They also won two reg- 
ular season games against St. Bonaven- 
ture. Those same fans were dismayed 
when UMass was twice trampled by 
Rutgers with 33 and 36 point losses. Dur- 
ing their first confrontation, Temple 
ousted the Minutewomen 85-51, but 
UMass struck back later in the season 
with a thrilling, last second win. 

First year Head Coach Ethel Allman 
attributes the inconsistency in a regular 
season play to a young team with a new 
system and a new coach. "Our internal 
strife was due to expectations between 
coaches and players not being met. We are 
a growing team and through the season we 
showed progress," Allman asserted. 

By the time UMass had reached the 
first round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament, 
their season-long progress was obvious as 
the Minutewomen downed the Lady Ben- 
nies of St. Bonavenlure, 80-67. UMass 
was on fire as four Minutewomen finished 
in double figures and the team out-re- 
bounded St. Bonaventure 51-36. UMass 
had captured their first win in six tries at 
the Atlantic 10 Tournament. 

With spirits and morales soaring, the 
Minutewomen traveled to St. Joseph's in 
Philadelphia for the second round of the 
Tournament. UMass lost to the Lady 
Hawks twice in the regular season and 
found that bad things happen in threes as 
they bowed to St. Joseph's 67-43, ending 
their quest for a Final Four bid. 

The Minutewomen completed the sea- 
son with an 11-18 record and were led by 
co-captains, Tara Lewis and Beth Wilbur. 
Lewis, the only senior on the team, was the 
leading scorer and finished her college ca- 
reer fifth on the all-time scoring list. She is 
third on the all-time rebounding list. 

Junior point guard Christen Zullo broke 
the single-season assists record during the 
last regular season game. Keyburn 
McCusker was selected to the Atlantic 10 
all-freshmen team and promises to give 
the Minutewomen three solid seasons of 
high performance. 

According to Coach Allman: "UMass is 
on its way to being a major contender in 
the Atlantic 10."

In a sport like gymnastics, where indi- 
vidual scores are major factors, strong re- 
liance on certain performers is inevitable. 
Some of the gymnasts who were key play- 
ers from the season's start were: Brian 
Richman, Mike Gullicksen and Bart 

But, Co-Captain John Eggers was 
forced to sit out the season, and, before the 
last meet of the season and the champion- 
ships, Tim Myers injured his knee. 

Overall, this season was one of growth 
for the gymnasts, and, although the team 
did not place as well as some had hoped, 
there were many impressive and truly 
noteworthy finishes by the Minutemen.

The women's gymnastics team experi- 
enced a number of highs and lows this 
season. The season jumped off to a terrific 
start with the team's defeat of Navy by 5.9 
points, but rapidly declined with five 
straight losses. Three of these had a slight 
fractional average of 1 .4 pts. After a dev- 
astating loss to Springfield (by .15pts.), 
the Minutewomen experienced a rebirth in 
their next three meets. They ended the 
season by breaking- the all-time UMass 
scoring record and two records as a team. 
Fortunately, the season's poor start didn't 
prevent these gymnasts from picking

Gorilla's Finish 10-3 

By Susan M. Hope ■■■■■■ ••■'^-■-^ 

Fans of the University of Massachu- 
setts' Men's Lacrosse team were provided 
with another exciting season by the ag- 
gressive gorillas. 

Beginning and ending the regular season 
with disappointing losses, the Gorillas 
sandwiched ten straight wins between and 
captured a sixth place USI LA (United 
States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Associa- 
tion) ranking and a seventh place NCAA 

Opening the season with an unexpected 
14-5 loss to Loyola, the Gorillas regrouped 
and stormed into the second game with 
high spirits and determination. Escaping 
Cornell in a thrilling win which included 
five overtimes, the Gorillas were prepared 
to rip past their remaining regular season 

All went as planned as the Gorillas cap- 
tured victories against their next nine op- 
ponents, including 14 point triumphs 
against New Hampshire, Dartmouth, and 
Boston College. 

Then, the bound Gorillas met up with 
the top-ranked Orange Men of Syracuse 
The Orange Men opened the game with 
the first pair of goals, which UMass quick- 
ly answered to bring the Gorillas in with 
one. But then Syracuse retaliated and 
from their on, it was all Orange. Syracuse 
handed the Gorillas a devastating 23-8 
loss, marking the second worst loss in 34 
years. This defeat was also the second time 
in UMass history that any team has scored 
twent> or more goals against the Gorillas. 

Dropping from fifth place in the 
USILA ranking to sixth, the Gorillas met 
up with revenge-seeking Cornell Universi- 
ty in the first round of the NCAA champi- 
onship chase. UMass, expecting to be in 
the Final Four of the Tournament, was 
stunned with a 13-11 defeat as Cornell 
handed Umass a first round bye in the 

Finishing with an impressive 10-3 re- 
cord and the NEILA championship title, 
the Gorillas, under the guidance of Head 
Coach Dick Garber, were led on the field 
by co-captains Glenn Stephens and Kelley 

Jim McAleavey provided the Gorillas 
with 49 points (20 goals, 29 assists) 
through the season. Scott Hiller was a 
close second with 43 points (28 goals, 15 
assists) and Kelley Carr added 39 points 
(25 goals, 14 assists).

Gazelles Rise Above Record 

*0-mM:-^y Ellen D. Goldberg 

The University of Massachusetts wom- 
en's lacrosse team ended their most diffi- 
cult season 7-7-1. To most observers this 
record only indicates a mediocre season. 
But the Gazelles can present strong evi- 
dence contrary to this point. The record 
does not tell the true story of the Gazelles 
topsy-turvey season. 

The first and probably the most difficult 
obstacle faced by the Gazelles was their 
schedule, which, incidently, was the tough- 
est in the country. Half of the teams that 
UMass faced were ranked in the top ten of 
the country at one time or another. Coach 
Patti Bossio thinks this tough schedule 
pushed the team into the HCAC tourna- 
ment. According to Bossio, playing a 
strong schedule exposes your strengths 
and weaknesses. "In order to be the best, 
you have to play the best," she said. The 
Gazelles adhered to this philosophy when 
they advanced to the final game in the 
ECAC Tourney. 

This year's roster also presented the Ga- 
zelles with many and varied problems. 
Two members of the team had never 
played lacrosse in their life Michelle 
Pytko, who finished the year as a starter 
on defense, and Nancy O'Halloran ap- 
proached this season without ever having 
picked up a stick. The Gazelles also lost 
two .All-Americans to graduation. 

There is not any one factor that one can 
pinpoint to explain why the Gazelles were 
stopped dead in their tracks, while trying 
to reach the National Tournament, but 
turnovers certainly played a major part. 
According to Bossio. "We turned the ball 
over too many times. That's something we 
did all year. We played best when we took 
care of the ball. We did not play well when 
we forced passes." 

The Gazelles will lose five players to 
graduation, all of which arc starters. The 
defence is the main area where the Ga- 
zelles will feel the loss. Defensive players 
Sheila Phillips, co-captains Amy Robert- 
son and Posy Seifert and goalie Pam Stone 
will be sorely missed. The scoring attack 
will especially feel the loss, with the gradu- 
ation of Ginny Armstrong, who was the 
Gazelle's second leading scorer this 

This year's season was a learning experi- 
ence for all, namely Bossio, who was in her 
first year. "I was constantly learning and I 
really enjoyed it." she said.

The UMass Baseball team not only set a 
new school record for most victories in a 
season, but Head Coach Mike Stone and 
the Minutemen also captured the New En- 
gland Championship title. 

Opening the season with a 4-0 run, the 
Minutemen swung into first place in New 
England with an impressive 33-14 record. 
However, this only included a 9-7 Atlan- 
tic- 10 Conference record. 

The Minutemen squeaked into the At- 
lantic- 10 playoffs late in the season by 
sweeping a doubleheader against the Tem- 
ple Owls, 5-0, 10-5. They joined Rutgers 
University in representing the East Div- 
sion in the playoffs in Boyertown, PA. 

Advancing into the playoffs, the Min- 
utemen crushed West Virginia 19-9 before 
losing to Rutgers 1-10 in the second game. 
UMass then demolished West Virginia 
again 20-2 and gained revenge against 
Rutgers in an 8-4 win in the fourth game. 
Falling to a 2-2 playoff record, UMass 
received a bye with a 5-8 loss to Rutgers, 
blowing their chance for a tournament 
championship and ending their season 
with a final 36-16 record. 

Rounding out the season, four Minute- 
men were selected to the All New England 
First team and two to the second team. 
Chosen for the first team were: Gary DiS- 
arcina, Dave Telgheder, Drew Comeau, 
and Matt Sheran. Dean Borrelli and Steve 
Kern were selected as second team 

Pitcher Steve Allen was selected as 
team MVP, and Matt Sheran received the 
Dennis Dellapiana Award for courage, de- 
termination, and sportsmanship. Sheran 
set a UMass record for most stolen bases 
in a season (32) and in a career (72). 

Allen and Comeau now share the 
UMass career homerun record with 21 
runs each.

games 3-1, 3-2. This was the first time in 
three years that UMass had failed to win 
the tourney. 

The Minutewomen suffered through 
bouts of fatigue all season, playing in nu-

playing conditions. Their impressive re-

The Union Program Council was founded 
in 1977 with the help of Tom Waits in the 
Fine Arts Center. This was the first of many 
shows to take place over the next ten years 
including such famous names as U2, the 
Talking Heads, and Phil Collins. 

The UPC is the largest student run concert 
organization in the country. With members 
coming from virtually every major, the orga- 
nization owes a great deal of its success to the 
dedication of those members. New members 
are always welcome. Past members have gone 
on to careers in the music industry due to 
interest created within the organization. 

Thanks to a funding increase, UPC has 
been busier than ever this year, programming

The Lesbian Union provides a safe, 
social space for all lesbians and woman- 
identified women. It also serves as a 
resource center, supplying updated in- 
formation in the format of posters and 
pamphlets and listings of campus and 
community events. 

The primary goal of the Lesbian 
Union is to address the needs, express 
the concerns, and provide group sup- 
port for lesbians in the UMass commu- 
nity. This year the Union had office 
space in 406G Student Union for wom- 
en to use freely. There the Union held 
weekly business meetings, organized 
the showing of films such as "Desert 
Hearts" and "Entre Nous", and held 
rap groups. 

During 1987-88, the LU co-spon- 
sored, along with the LGBA and the 
UMass Program for Lesbian, Gay, and 
Bisexual Concerns, a slide show pre- 
sented by Cathy Cade, a California- 
based photographer. "The Subject is 
Lesbians" featured images of lesbians 
from diverse backrounds in a variety of 
situations and roles. The LU co-spon- 
sored the Women's Film Festival in 
\^-'\' - March. It also participated in the Les- 
■ /" '_\' - bian. Gay, Bisexual Awareness Week in 
' April by operating a table of 

The future of the Union is devoted to 
advancing the understanding of lesbi- 
ans and women in society.

The Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Coun- 
seling Collective, located in 433 Student 
Union, is a Registered Student Organiza- 
tion, providing a unique service to the uni- 
versity and the community. It offers free 
counseling around issues of lesbian, gay, 
and bisexual concern. Members are avail- 
able in the office twelve hours a week for 
personal discussion on a walk-in or ap- 
pointment basis. They also counsel over 
the phone. The concerns of the Counseling 
Collective range from coming out as gays, 
lesbians, or bisexuals, to dealing with a 

homosexual roommate, to seeking infor- 
mation about the local supportive commu- 
nity. They also have a library and exten- 
sive resource files to make referrals to area 
organizations and professionals 

Aside from counseling and weekly meet- 
ings, members of the Collective facilitate 
rap groups held in the LBGA office. These 
weekly rap groups focuse on different top- 
ics each week, including "Roles", 
"Gay/Lesbian parenting", and "Coming 
Out to Parents".

The Juggling Club, assembled in No- 
vember 1985, focuses on enhancing the 
Art of Juggling, teaching people juggling 
skills, and serving the community through 
performances. Comprised of 30 members, 
the club officers for 1987-88 were Bruce 
Wisenburn, co-president; Adam Levine, 
co-president; Jeremy Brown, vice-presi- 
dent; Sean Kennan, treasurer; and Dennis 
Chen, secretary. 

This year, the Club brought several 
famous jugglers to campus, including Hol- 
ly Greeley, president of the International 
Juggling Association, and Paul Rich- 
mond, a professional juggler in the area. 

The Club held weekly meetings on cam- 
pus to exchange ideas, to practice new 
techniques, and to teach juggling to any- 
one who wanted to learn. The group 
claimed to be able to "teach anyone how 
to juggle in under half an hour." Juggling 
teaches people to utilize their coordination 
in ways they did not realize they were 

Future plans for the Juggling Club are 
directed toward a major International 
Juggling Convention in November 1988. 
Fantastic jugglers from around the world 
will converge at UMass to teach and to

The Outing Club brings people together for good times and the opportunity to introduce 
members to the great outdoors. Club trips range from a single day to several weeks, and from local 
to cross country. Club members plan and lead trips in hiking, canoeing, caving, rock climbing, 
winter mountaineering, snow shoeing, and cross-country skiing. 

This year UMOC sponsored trips to the Everglades and Yellowstone National Park as well as 
Spring Break caving trips to North Carolina and West Virginia. You do not have to be a member to 
participate in club events, although income from membership dues helps support club activities. 
The Outing Club provides activities for people of all levels of skill and maintains its own equipment, 
which may be rented for private use. 

The club also rents a cabin just outside the White Mountains in Bethlehem, N.H. that is available 
to anyone affiliated with the university or other outing clubs. Over the February long weekend, 
UMOC held its annual winter extravaganza, "Insanity VII," at the cabin. Participants enjoyed 
cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and iceclimbing, among other winter activities. Photos on these 
pages are of that trip. 

This year's officers are Michael "Mickey" Ingles, president; Darci Dulaney, vice president; 
Richard Ormond, secretary; and Maureen Shae, treasurer.

The Student Union Gallery, established in 1957, is the oldest art gallery at 
UMass and the only one run entirely by students, independent of residential 
area governments. The main focus of the gallery has traditionally been on 
students' work with occasional shows by alumni or regional professional 
artists. The aim of this year's director, however, has been to introduce the 
university to a broader perspective on the contemporary art world. This has 
been achieved through the programming of exhibitions by international, 
national, and regional artists. 

Opening receptions are now more popular than ever due to increased 
publicity, live music, and refreshments. Despite the already impressive atten- 
dance record, the staff continually strives to encourage a more vital use of 
the gallery, not just as an exhibition space , but also as a forum for discussion 
and critiques. In November 1987, English artist in residence, Cheryl Hamer 
spoke with faculty and students and presented a slide show of her work at the 

Spring semester 1988 was marked by two important group exhibitions. 
The first, in celebration of Black History Month, exposed the work of six 
black artists, including Benny Andrews and Emilio Cruz. The second fea- 
tured the work of six women artists, including Beatricia Sagar and Brigitte 
Keller. The result was an exciting insight into the diversity and abundance of U' 
contemporary women's art. 

The 1987-1988 staff consisted of Helen Ratcliffe, director; Marcella van 
Zanten, assistant director; Cari Bryn Cohen, Karen Lurie, and Jane Brady, 
Gallery assistants.

As a club sport, the Fencing Club offers 
the student body both practice time and 
lessons for developing one's mastery of the 
Art of Fencing. The club is open to any- 
one. It meets daily at 3:30p.m. in Totman 
Gymnasium to practice. For one desiring a 
more strucured approach, they may enroll 
in one of the physical education classes, 
Fencing I or II, which the members also 
teach. Instruction is available in three 
weapons - foil, epee, and sabre. 

Although the Fencing Club is not an 
official intercollegiate team, it competes 
against such school teams as Trinity, 
Brown, and MIT. It also competes against 
fellow clubs throughout New England. 

For 1987-88, the club's officers were: 
co-Presidents, Doug Howe and Jeff Bar- 
ber; Treasurer, Lannae Long; and Secre- 
tary, Jame Duda.

For nearly forty years, the Minuteman Marching 
Band has provided entertainment at football games, pa- 
rades, and indoor and outdoor music festivals here in 
Amherst and all over the country. 

Under the direction of George Parks, the 1987-88 
membership boasted 240 undergraduates from all of the 
university's academic divisions. Members attended daily 
afternoon practices as well as painful 8 a.m. practices 
every Saturday to be deemed " Power and Class of New 
England". Rain, shine, snow, the band could be found 
practicing out on the sports fields, in or around the Old 
Chapel, or any large space available. 

The band is comprised of several sections: wind instru- 
ments, battery percussion, sideline percussion ensemble, 
colorguard/flags, and colorguard/twirlers. There is also 
a support group, the "band aids", who help carry props 
and set up instruments. The selections of music touch on 
everything from classical to movie scores to traditional 
marches to rock-n-roll. One of this year's selections was 
the " CanCan, " complete with CanCan dancers. 

Some of the highlights of the 1987-88 season were the 
UMMB's Third Annual Band Day and the Southern 
Tour to the University of Delaware. Band Day featured 
sixteen high school bands from all over the state in a 
special half-time performance. The Southern Tour in- 
cluded playing at the Delaware-Massachusetts footballl 
game as well as performing a special concert in Potts- 
town, Penn.

If asked the purpose of their organi- 
zation, members of the Student Note- 
taking and Print Shop would probably 
say to provide students and faculty with 
quality printing services and thorough 
lecture notes. Actually, it is a bit more 
than that. 

SNIPS, as it is most commonly 
known, has undoubtedly prevented the 
cums of a countless number of students 
from plummeting to near oblivion. 

Housed in their offices on the fourth 
floor of the Student Union building are 
notes from about 40 first-year, intro- 
ductory courses. This year, the shop re- 
ceived over 5,000 subscriptions to avail- 
able notes. 

Both students and faculty consider 
the service invaluable. In fact, some 
professors use the service as a supple- 
ment to their classes, requiring students 
to purchase copies of their lectures. 

Next to the notetaking office is the 
Print Shop. Here a staff of about 25 
students produce flyers and advertise- 
ments for RSO's and local businesses. 
The center also offers low-cost copying 
to students.

The University Democrats is probably one 
of the least-known organizations on campus. 
But, according to the group's co-president, 
Jeff Cronin, they don't mind. 

"We don't want to make noise, we want to 
get results," he said. 

Action is the group's middle name. This 
year, for example, members of the organiza- 
tion played a vital part behind the scenes on 
the Rabinowitz/Silkoff campaign. Other 
members were active in promoting the demo- 
cratic candidates for president. 

Although the group is not worried about its 
virtual invisibility, members are devising new 
strategies to increase the group's influence on 

In upcoming semesters, the group plans to 
put together a newspaper and become more 
involved in local politics. Treasurer Jay Festa 
said the group hopes to fill the six seats desig- 
nated for students on the Amherst Town

The Marketing Club is open to all stu- 
dents who want to learn more about mar- 
keting tactics such as advertising or sales. 
Through weekly meetings and special 
guest lectures, the members become ex- 
posed to this intriguing area of business. 

In the fall. Proctor & Gamble spoke to 
the club about careers in sales. Two 1987 
UMASS graduates came with their divi- 
sion manager to give the presentation. 
Later that semester, club members learned 
about product development and media 
plans when Hershey demonstrated these 
factors for their new candy bar, BarNone. 

One evening in the spring, two advertis- 
ing agencies presented their own personal 
ideas about starting one's own agency. Ex- 
ecutives from Arnold and Company and 
Ingalls, Quinn, and Johnson provided the 
members with very valuable information. 
Another spring meeting included a lecture 
from Anheuser-Busch about advertising 
and sales. 

Another aim of the Marketing Club was 
to create a sense of unity among students 
in marketing studies. To this aim, it held 
socials both semesters and ended the year 
with the annual Student/Faculty softball 

The officers for the Marketing Club for 
1987-88 were Renee Kruger, Michelle 
Blackadar, Helane Daniels, and Andy 
Klepacki. The faculty advisor was Kath- 
leen Debevec.

tives are to confront and resolve the prob- 
lems that the Latin Americans face on 
campus. It does this through innumerable 
activities such as vk'orkshops, movies, and 
guest speakers who are presented during 
the whole academic year. 

For the fall semester, AHORA helped 
sponsor and coordinate Carribbean Week. 
In the spring, they participated in two cul- 
tural awareness weeks, Latin American 
Week and the first Puerto Rican Aware- 
ness Week. 

Operating out of the 406F of the Stu-

The UMPSO Rescues Witchcraft From The Dark Ages Of Public 
Misperception While Exploring New Horizons In Worship

Centuries after the frenzied persecution of their reli- 
gion, UMass witches are proudly emerging from a 
"broom closet" of media distortion to assert the true 
principles of the Wiccan faith. 

"A lot of people hear 'witch' and think of those Disney 
crones with long hats and pointy noses who run around 
burning babies and cursing people" explains Alyxx Bergler, 
co-president of UMass' newly-formed Pagan Student Orga- 
nization. "They pull a cross out and are shocked if you don't 
vanish in a puff of smoke," jokes the energetic brunette. 

Indeed, real witches bare no resemblance at all to these 
snaggle-toothed, Satan-worshipping pretenders to the Wic- 
can name, with Bergler defining true witches as "harmonic . 
. . nature-oriented individuals who revere the divine as 
having two facets, both male and female . . . the two basic 
architects of life." 

According to Bergler, Wicca itself is only one of a larger 
subset of nature-based religions (such as Druidism and 
Native American Spirituality) that fall under the umbrella- 
heading of Paganism; Wicca being the most flamboyant of 
the trio with its emphasis on astrology, herblore, tarot read- 
ing and magic ("what others call prayer or ESP"). 

The UMPSO's official pamphlet further underscores the 
luminous benevolence behind Wicca's 40,000 year old phi- 
losophies, extolling a God and (slightly superior) Goddess 

who are both "part of the one Divine force which flows 
through the entire universe. We recognize the entire world: 
people, animals, plants, earth, and rocks as filled with this 
life force. The Gods are Divine, Humankind is Divine, the 
Earth is Divine. We are all holy and deserving of respect." 

Yet, despite the noble, nature-loving foundation of their 
philosophies, Wiccans have been continually assailed by 
twisted misrepresentations of their faith. Modern horror 
fiction, the King James Bible ("Thou shalt not suffer a 
witch to live"), and even films like The Witches of Eastwick 
and The Wizard of Oz have created a "void of understand- 
ing" that Bergler's co-president, Lewis Stead, felt an orga- 
nization like the UMPSO could finally dispel. 

"I saw the need for a network organization," explains the 
Lennon-tressed, bespectacled Stead. "We knew there were 
other pagans out there . . ^ people frustrated with things 
they didn't understand" and unable to receive the guidance 
and information available to other faiths. 

Stead himself was first awakened to the principles of 
Wicca by the fanciful tales of witch/ author Marion Zim- 
mer Bradley, while Bergler's farm upbringing ignited her 
own spiritual curiousity with the nagging observance that 
"men didn't give birth, so how did a man give birth to the 

176/ UMass Pagan Student Organization 

Although both Bergler and Stead fine-tuned their beliefs 
through reading New Age literature and occult fiction, 
Bergler feels the current New Age philosophy as a whole is 
"just another form of packaged spirituality where people 
give thousands of dollars to gather with a guru . . . (but) . . . 
it has made it easier to be an open witch and people don't 
seem to take witchcraft with such a nasty taste in their 

Indeed, with a firm and faithful core of 25 students and 
Amherst residents alike, the UMPSO's weekly Sunday 
night meetings have already generated a steady stream of 
non-pagan spectators ready to embrace this revived faith . . 
. although not always for the right reasons. 

"This is not some excuse for an orgy," asserts Stead, who 
cautions "Our rituals have meaning to us. If that's what you 
want to do, get some booze and some friends together and 
have an orgy . . . that's not Witchcraft." 

Indeed, the Wiccan Rede "An it harm none, do what you 
will" (in layman's terms: don't harm anyone), figures prom- 
inently in everything the UMPSO has endeavored this year, 
whether lending their support to Greenpeace's wildlife pres- 
ervation campaigns or leading their own peaceful May 16 
protest against the university's use of Chemlawn herb/ 
pesticide on the Campus Pond. 

"If you are of the earth and hurt the earth, you are only

hurting yourself," observes Bergler, who is all in favor of 
"long walks in the woods" to bring one "closer to the 

Unlike other religions where structured buildings are the 
focus of spiritual harmony, the Wiccan's cathedral is the 
whole of nature itself, and thus must be shielded from 
exploitation and impurity in the same way a priest or rabbi 
would safeguard his faith's holy relics. 

"A concrete building is very dead," elaborates Bergler, 
"but rocks are very much alive . . . very ancient. They're the 
bones of the earth . . . (and) ... if you have the awareness 
that 'I'm a part of all this, it will reflect how you relate to 
the world." 

"Nothing is non-connected" adds Stead, while Bergler 
echoes "Plastic manifests itself in this table. Plastic comes 
from petroleum and petroleum comes from dead dinosaurs . 
. . it's an infinite cycle." 

One cycle the UMPSO has just entered is that of fun- 
draising, as Stead plans a Halloween "tarot-reading con- 
vention" and a possible visit by Salem witch Laurie Cabot 
to improve Wiccan visibility while "promoting a better 
image" for his organization.

The Animal Rights Coalition works toward a 
world in which all species, human and non-human 
alike, can live out their natural lives unmolested by 
humankind. Our primary goal is to expose to the 
campus community the mass exploitation of ani- 
mals in all its forms, and to show students how they 
can eliminate animal suffering in their own daily 
lives. We approach this goal in many ways. 

We have weekly information tables on the Cam- 
pus Center Concourse and hold occasional evening 
showings of The Animals Film, the most compre- 
hensive documentary on animal exploitation. We 
sponsor ads on PVTA buses, post flyers, and write 
to newspapers and magazines to alert the public of 
animal rights issues. We place Public Service An- 
nouncements at radio stations and sponsor Animal 
Rights, a series of shows on Community Access 

Nationwide, we join the humane community in 
supporting annual events such as The Great Amer- 
ican Meatout, World Laboratory Animals Day, 
and World Farm Animals Day, educating people 
about the health benefits and satisfaction of a cru- 
elty-free, vegetarian lifestyle and the alternatives 
to vivisection as they develop. 

To expose the deprived lifestyle of performing 
animals, members of the Animal Rights Coalition 
dressed as clowns and animals and leafletted a 
circus at the Fine Arts Center. We picketed the 
gillette Headquarters in Boston for their use of the 
brutal LD 50 and Draize tests, and, in West 
Springfield, we picketed the first (and, we hope.

last) annual Shriners' Rodeo. We protested sport 
hunting on Yale University's forest grounds, and ral- 
lied in downtown Springfield about the cruelty behind 
the fur industry. Most of these events received heavy 
newspaper and television coverage, bringing our mes- 
sage to thousands of people. 

This year, members also lobbied on Capital Hill 
and testified at state hearings in Boston. We were area 
coordinators for the successful Massachusetts Hu- 
mane Farm Animal Referendum initiative, sponsored 
by the Coalition to End Animal Suffereing and Ex- 
ploitation in Boston. As a result, a question will ap- 
pear on the next state ballot to protect veal calves and 
other severely abused farm animals. Also a group 
meets weekly to write our congressional representa- 
tives about pending legislation affecting animals. 

Members often do outstanding work individually. 
Two members attended a legislative workshop in 
Washington D.C., another raised money in the Walk- 
a-thon for Alternatives to Animal Research in New 
York City, and yet another member spent a month at 
a wildlife rehabilitation center, gaining hands-on ex- 
perience with many species. 

The Animal Rights Coalition is a democratic orga- 
nization welcoming members at all levels of commit- 
ment. Stop by our office at Student Union 306.

The Distinguished Visitors Program is a 
student run, student funded organization 
designed to bring speakers of all interests 
to enlighten, inform, and stimulate critical 
thought. Established in 1962, DVP seeks 
to bring individuals whose experience in 
international and domestic affairs, sci- 
ence, humanities, and the arts qualify 
them to interpret, explain, and raise ques- 
tions about life in all it's dimensions. 

The fall's speaker's included William F. 
Buckley, Jr., America's foremost conser- 
vative spokesperson, David Owen Brown, 
an oceanographic photographer and natu- 
ralist from Cousteau Society, and feminist 
and contemporary artist, Judy Chicago. 

In the spring, DVP presented best sell-

The Student Government Association 
exists to promote student interests at all 
the levels where University policy is made. 
From the smallest house council to the 
infamous Student Senate, elected repre- 
sentatives work to make the quality of life 
at UMASS better. The Senate's commit- 
tees provide advocacy on academic, fee, 
and tuition issues and also allocate hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars for student 
organizations and special events. 

As I reflect on my years in student gov- 
ernment, I'm struck by the fact that the 
Senate has spent more time on internal 
political conflicts than University issues. 
Some senators do, however, research the 
charges on your bill, lobby legislators in 
Boston, and process hundreds of funding 
requests. These people don't grandstand 
during the weekly senate meetings; they 
are involved in public service, not self- 

SGA controversies can have two affects: 
they can alienate you or inspire you to 
create change. Change can come through 
a ballot box or a Senate seat. It is easy to 
get discouraged, especially when elected 
choices for the SGA presidency are 
blocked from taking office. Can you really 
believe that your vote mattered? We all 
must persist. 

This year's President was Joe Demeo. 
Bob Griffin presided over the Senate and 
represented it to the administration as the 
Speaker. Katherine Strickland kept the 
fiscal house in order during her two con- 
secutive terms as Treasurer. I was honored 
to serve as your Student Trustee.

The Men's Volleyball Club finished its 
Spring 1988 season with a strong 37-9 record 
and a fifth place finish at the Club National 
Championships at the University of Mary- 
land. In their third season of NCAA play, the 
Minutemen finished first in New England by 
not losing a single match in their division. 

The Men's Volleyball Club actually con- 
sists of two teams, an A squad and a B squad, 
with a total of thirty players on both squads. 
The A squad, nick-named the "Pack-At- 
tack", travelled throughout the east coast this 
season taking on such NCAA power-houses 
as the U.S. Naval Academy, George Mason 
University, New Jersey Institute of Technol- 
ogy, and Rutgers University, whose varsity 
program was ranked as high as fifth in the 
country among other varsity programs such 
as use, UCLA, and Pepperdine. 

The A squad will lose only one of its start- 
ing six to graduation this year. Roger Chap- 
man will be greatly missed by the club after 
putting in four years as one of the squad's top 
players. The Minutemen look forward to an- 
other good season next year. The A squad 
hopes to improve its showing at Club Nation- 
als next year which will be held at the Univer- 
sity of California at Berkley.

In what maybe one of the world's most 
demanding yet graceful sports, an ultimate 
frisbee player must perform with the speed 
and agility of a basketball player and the 
determination of a soccer goalie to dive 
instinctively for an errant pass. 

The University of Massachusetts ulti- 
mate frisbee team, Zoo Disc, has been a 
powerhouse in collegiate ultimate for the 
last ten years, in a sport that is itself hardly 
twenty years old. 

Fall -1987 was a great season for Zoo 
Disc. The team finished seventh in the 
Northeast Open Regionals, defeating top 
ranked college teams such as Wesleyan 
and the University of Vermont to advance 
within two games of the Club Nationals, a 
feat no college team has yet performed. 

This Spring, Zoo Disc traveled every 
weekend to tournaments throughout the 
Northeast, finishing strongly in all of them 
and taking first place at the Hampshire 
College tournament early in the season. 
The sweat, dirt, broken fingers, almost 
broken noses, blisters, blood, and frustra- 
tions of daily practices and rigorous tour- 
naments all paid off for Zoo Disc when 
they placed third at the Regional Champi- 
onships, qualifying for the National Colle- 
giate Championships at the University of 
California at Santa Barbara. Zoo Disc did 
not repeat their 1986 first place finish at 
Nationals this year but the spirit, talent, 
and dedication of the team virtually as- 
sures Zoo Disc will strive in earnest for the 
Collegiate National title next year. 

Co-captians Bill Stewart and Mike Equi 
are the only remaining veterans of the 
1986 Championship team, but they are 
hardly the only experienced players on 
Zoo Disc.

The Campus Center/ Student Union 
Board of Governors represents all 25,000 
students in the operations and policies of 
the Campus Center complex. Since it was 
formed 17 years ago, the BOG has been 
the primary voice in the student govern- 
ment responsible for advising the Campus 
Center management on student needs and 
concerns. These interests include the bal- 
ance of services provided in the complex, 
programming, and the revenue that the 
complex generates. The BOG allocates 
student office space, administers the vend- 
ing program on the concourse, and pro- 
vides funds for: UPC, UVC, Student 
Union Art Gallery, and Student Union 

The BOG is comprised of 32 voting 
members and 9 coordinators. The officers 
for this year were: Mark Friedman, chair- 
person, Carol Harlow, vice-chairperson, 
and Dan Collins, treasurer. Notable se- 
niors included: Paul Coradeschi, Rebecca 
Lauterbach, Michael Ross, Dean Richard, 
Jeff Groux, finance coordinator, and Ra-

The B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation pro- 
vides for the spiritual, cultural, and emo- 
tional needs of the local 3500 member 
Jewish community. Operating out of 302 
of the Student Union, Hillel holds weekly 
meetings and daily office hours to plan 
events, to encourage exchange, and to just 
be there. 

The fall semester proved a great success 
in programming for co-presidents Sandor 
Goldstein and Alan Sperstein. Hillel spon- 
sored lectures by Dan Futterman, Harold 
Kushner, and Amoz Oz. It provided mem- 
bers with a trip to Cambridge for the Sim- 
chat Torah celebration, complete with 
"Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Fac- 
tory". At the end of the semester it held 
quite a successful fundraiser, a two-day 
Mini Mall in the Student Union Ballroom. 

The next semester was rich in Jewish 
culture as it opened with the 12th Annual 
Jewish Arts Festival featuring renowned 
Klezmer clarinetist Giora Feldman, au- 
thor Julius Lester, and Tslila and Dancers. 
Another faction of Hillel went to Wash- 
ington, D.C. for the annual Soviet Jewry 
Lobby. In April it sponsored Holocaust 
Memorial Week, headed by Eric Traiger. 
This provided the entire student body with 
the opportunity to hear speakers such as 
Leon Bass and Aharon Appelfeld, and lis- 
ten to the beautiful voice of Rosalie Gernt 
and friends. 

This year Rakhmiel Peltz and Rabbi 
Mark Finkel joined the staff as Rabbi Saul 
Perlmutter spent the year on sabbatical in 
Jerusalem. Yehudit Heller became the 
Acting Director and Melinda Williams re- 
turned for a second year as Administrative 
Assistant. Hillel has many new faces to 
help continue to grow and to make a posi- 
tive Jewish presence felt on campus.

The year is 1964. Science fiction is an 
up- and coming form of literature around 
the country. Enterprising and interested 
students at the university decide that sci- 
.\^ ence fiction lovers on campus need some- 
place to meet, read, and discuss this popu- 
lar topic. With the help of famous science 
fiction writer Isaac Asimov, the Science 
Fiction Club was born. 

Located in the basement of the Campus 
Center, the Science Fiction Club is home 
to about 6,000 books, and donations are 
always welcome. There are about 100 ac- 
tive members, and non-members can also 
be found in the club enjoying the extensive 
library. The club sponsors a number of 
activities throughout the year, including 
movie marathons and a two-day conven- 
tion every fall. The club also produces a 
semi-annual magazine entitled Betelgeuse, 
consisting of fiction, articles, artwork, po- 
etry, and essays. In the past, the club has 
been involved in a project called Audible [' 
Fiction, in which club members taped sci- 
ence fiction and fantasy books for the

The many messages and signs 
outside 319 Student Union are in- 
dicative of the energy and friendly 
atmosphere within. This is the 
home of the Bike Co-op. 

The fundamental purpose of 
the Bike Co-op is to offer a tool 
room for anyone who wants to re- 
pair their bike. There are special 
tools to tune wheels or grease 
gears that most people do not own 
themselves. The Bike co-op mem- 
bers who staff the tool room dur- 
ing its office hours are very 
knowledgeable about bike repair. 
Although they may teach you how 
to repair your bike and help you 
along the way, .the Bike Co-op 
crew do not repair it for you. 

The Bike Co-op also offers a 

salesroom for replacement parts 

■/j^^ at competitive prices. The Co-op 

also held several workshops, enti- 
tled "Take Back The Bike", to 
teach women how to do minor bi- 
cycle repairs themselves. 

Membership for 1987-1988 av- 
eraged about fifteen.

It is 12:45 on a busy Tuesday 
afternoon. With less than fifteen 
minutes until your next class, 
there's no time for the D.C. and 
the line at the Hatch is at least 
fifteen minutes long by itself. 
Where do you go for a quick 
lunch? The People's Market! 

Formed in the early 1970's, the 
People's Market is a student run 
and governed co-op which pro- 
vides the UMass community with 
low-cost, nutritious foods. In ad- 
dition to delicious fresh bagels, 
customers can take their pick 
from fresh fruits and vegetables, 
yogurt, juices, cheese, ice cream, 
and several varieties of gourmet 

The People's Market is a great 
place to browse in between class- 
es-the friendly atmosphere, cheer- 
ful employees, and excellent mu- 
sical selection are ideal relief 
from the hectic University day.

A n exhibition of Recent 
Sculpture and Drawings 
by Scott Richter were dis- 
played by the University Gal- 
lery from Oct. 31 to Dec. 13. 
Richter's painted wall sculp- 
tures, or reliefs, are figurative 
abstractions of truncated hu- 
man torsos, stylized figures, or 
crescent moons. Wood and 
wire, carpet, or foam are often 
used to build armatures over 
which the artist applies pig- 
mented beeswax to form tactile 

surfaces that suggest polished 
ivory or bone. Richter draws 
on a number of sources, rang- 
ing from Classical Greek 
sculpture and vases to primi- 
tive totems, naelding these in- 
fluences to create intimate and 
expressive contemporary icons. 
Mixrox, 1983 (to right) is done 
with beeswax, canvas, and 

Scott Richter received a 
B.F.A. from New York Uni- 
versity and the New School for 
Social Research in New York, 
and has taught at the State 
University of New York.

tty^ ontemporary American Collage: 1960 
>-'- 1986," a travelling exhibition which 
began a national tour in January 1988, was 
shown at Herter Art Gallery from Novem- 
ber 9 - December 11, 1987. The exhibition 
featured 55 works by 42 artists, including 
such artists as Robert Motherwell, Lee 
Krasner, Tom Wesselmann, and Andy 
Warhol, as well as younger arists such as 
Buster Cleveland and Brett De Palma. 
The exhibition provided a survey of the 
limitless variety of forms that collage has 
developed over the past century. 

In a broader historical sense, the exhibi- 
tion helped underscore the significance 
that the medium collage has come to enjoy 
in american art. The uniqueness of collage 
supports American art's drive toward ab- 
straction, as well as the drive toward reali- 
ty that has determined not only the use of 
collage, but the course of contemporary 
American art.

The Student Union Art Gal-

tion from February 8th-26th, 
in celebration of Black History 

Emilio Cruz, an established 
prolific artist of national ac- 
claim with work in many public 
collections, painted The Pale 
Dog Study (pictured at right). 
Cruz grew up in Harlem and 
the Bronx during the 1950's 
and currently lives in Brooklyn. 
His painting style, character- 
ized by sketchy lines and loose 
color masses, are testimony to 
the influences of the "New 
York School" and "figurative 
expressionism" of the fifties. 
The subject matter reveals his 
ongoing obsession with images 
from mythology and religious 
icons, mingled with his own

stereotypes, he presents moral-

with which to tackle society's

feelings of isolation, loneliness 
and depression. Her observa-

"this play asks a number of vi- 
tal questions about human in- 
teraction and morality without 
sentimentality. It poses ques- 
tions about the limits of com- 
passion, not only for others but 
for ourselves. One major ques-

TT he Fine Arts Center presented the

gin' in the Rain" on March 15th in the 
Concert Hall. Like the classic 1952 MGM 
film, "Singin' in the Rain" contains a col- 
lection of memorable songs which include 
"You are My Lucky Star," "You Were 
Meant For Me," "Good Mornin'," "Make 
'em Laugh," and the title song "Singin' in 
the Rain". The lighthearted book was 
written by Tony Award winners Betty 
Comden and Adolph Green, who also 
wrote the Film's original screenplay. "Sin- 
gin' in the Rain", (pictured at left) is set in 
the wacky world of Hollywood in the 
1920's. Don Lockwood, Hollywood's top 
leading man, and Lina Lamont, the queen 
of the silver screen, are forced to appear in 
a talking picture during a frantic transi- 
tion from silent films. However, the lovely 
Lina has a shrill voice as irritating as fin- 
gernails scraping across a blackboard. 
Kathy Selden (the girl who Don is in love 
with) and Cosmo Brown come to the res- 
cue so the show can go on.

branch of the Nishikawa 
School was established.)

The Perils And Peaks Of UPC; 

After 10 Years, Still The Cutting Edge 
Of Campus Entertainment 

By Jotin M. Dolierty 

Photo by Marianne Turley 

Above: Members of UPC flash their pearly whites for posterity. 

SO you want to be a rock'n roll promoter, huh? Let's face it, 
putting on a contemporary musical concert is not nearly as 
easy or as infectiously exuberant as Spanky, Alfalfa and 
Darla's soapbox singalongs (from countless "Our Gang" epi- 
sodes) would suggest. Orchestrating all the seductive glitter and 
galvanizing grooves of a rock concert is an often perilous and 
tiresome undertaking, yet UMass' Union Program Council has 
made it look like child's play for over ten years. 

One of the largest and most respected college organizations of 
its kind, UPC has brought a funky, freewheeling edge to the 
UMass entertainment horizon, launching such once-glittering 
hopefuls as U2, INXS, Talking Heads, Joan Armatrading, Elvis 
Costello, and the Psychedelic Furs into striking orbits within the 
contemporary rock stratosphere. Now celebrating its tenth anni- 
versary as the fearlessly eclectic, progressive pioneer in campus 
concert production, the current UPC staff recently reminisced 
about the frequently transcendent and sometimes terrible perfor- 
mances of days gone by, while training a playfully irreverant eye 
on concerts to come. 

While citing UPC as an "excellent learning opportunity for 
students and a nice stepping stone into the music industry," UPC 
Business Manager Patty O'Brien is riot exagerrating when she 

describes the organization's recent spring concert as "a huge . . . 
gargantuan undertaking by all the people involved. Everything is 
tenfold. Whereas smaller concerts need minimal security, you 
need 10 or 20 police officers here . . . (plus) ... 130 student 
security personnel, 40 stagehands, 40 hospitality workers, and 5 
promotional people. In addition, we have to set up the entire 
venue, building the stage and walls, not to mention checking the 
electricity. You just tend to take all these things for granted." 

Yet, after 5 months of intense planning, precise schedule ma- 
nipulation, and $50,000 worth of contracting commitments, the 
1988 spring concert was nearly felled by two calamities: the 
threatened protest riots against Chancellor Joseph Duffey's 
stricter alcohol policies, and the delayed delivery of the concert 

According to O'Brien, "We were really caught in the middle of 
the alcohol controversy, so we decided to write a letter to the 
Collegian urging people that if they wanted to protest then to do 
do so in a responsible manner. We were quite clear that the threat 
of cancellation was in their hands. We were really scared, espe- 
cially after their first protest. I think they wanted everybody to 
join in, 'display chaos,' and really make Duffey afraid. If they had 
actually followed through with their plans, the consequences

would have been worse than the alcohol policy. 

According to O'Brien, what these protesters failed to realize 
was that "there aren't just people out there who want to get 
trashed. (The protesters) wanted all hell to break loose at the 
concert so that we'd be forced to call in the National Guard. In 
the end, it rained, and they just melted. They were into (asserting 
their stance) only if they could have a good time doing it, but 
once there was a problem with the party scene, they weren't going 
to protest." 

Although the alcohol incident proved only a minor distraction 
to the festive proceedings, an animated O'Brien vividly recalls the 
terror that followed the concert's next dilemna. 

"We had originally contracted for the whole stage setup to be 
completed by Friday, May 6," relates O'Brien with dramatic 
calm. "But two days before the concert we got a call saying 'We 
can't get the roof to you 'til 10 o'clock Saturday night! Well, we 
were figuring out how much prep time the roof would need when 
we got another call (from the rental agency) saying they couldn't 
get us the roof until 2 o'clock Sunday morning . . . That only left 
us 4 hours to install the roof before the sound crew was to arrive." 

This sudden snafu forced UPC stage crews to work around the 
clock Saturday night and into Sunday morning trying to erect a 
roof which, if unprovided, would have given the contracted bands 
valid cause to cancel their performances while still receiving pay. 

"Contractually, we could have sued someone and probably 
would have," adds UPC Talent Coordinator Michael Warden 
about the potentially fatal delay. "If that concert was cancelled. 

we'd really have had to call in the National Guard to take care of 
the 16 million people rioting outside." 

Although Warden feels this spring's UPC extravaganza even- 
tually proved itself "the most memorable . . . and best pond 
concert ever," he is just as quick to add performances by Paul 
Young, Morris Day, UB40 and INXS to his list of recent sizzling 
UMass debuts. 

"But, of all the FAC shows I've seen," raves Warden "the 
Violent Femmes was the best. It just fit this area so well because a 
strong cult interest was tapped. More students seemed to know 
about them here then on other campuses and they seemed like the 
right band at the right time. Our 750 room hall sold out in 4 hours 
with just 3 ticket outlets." 

Similarly transcendant was the 1982 debut of a then little- 
known Irish band named U2, whose Bowker auditorium debut 
sold out in two days and evoked "an incredible (audience) re- 
sponse" according to Warden. 

"Soon after they played here," adds Warden" "reporters from 
Rolling Stone were saying that they'd be the next big thing . . . 
and they were." 

Of UPC's remarkable track record of launching such eclectic 
and ferociously innovative bands as The Replacements, Husker 
Du and R.E.M., Warden simply explains "We catch people on 
the breaking edge. In fact, most people who the (UMass) audi- 
ence want to see again are popular acts caught right before they 
broke, only now they've moved past us." 

Some big name performers who can keep on going as far as 
UPC is concerned include the Boomtown Rats (who, according 
to Warden, "showed up with a roadcase that turned out to be a 
portabar and got so drunk they almost couldn't play") as well as

scat master Al Jarreau, who proved especially demanding to his 
host/caterer Patty O'Brien. 

"Al Jarreau drove me crazy," laughs a now-healed O'Brien 
"what with all his macrobiotic food and red snapper fish. We had 
to provide him with beans that had been soaked in herbs for 24 
hours and baked for 10 hours or he wouldn't eat. What got me 
was that he was so conscious of what he was eating yet you'd turn 
around and he'd be smoking cigarettes and drinking 

Similarly, minor league rock screecher Simon F's stage name 
almost became "Simian" after what O'Brien terms an "obnox- 
ious, drooling and spitting" display as Paul Young's opening act, 
while she says the British quartet The Alarm will never be asked 
back "unless they get a new manager. He was a real jerk and 
thought he was in total charge. He even wanted payment right 
after the band's performance." 

The sweepingly popular cult group The Grateful Dead is an- 
other band that will probably never find its way back to UMass in 
this lifetime as a result of a 1979 appearance that brought 30,000 
Hell's Angels swarming over the campus. "The town of Hadley 
refuses to let them play here," explains Warden. "They're not 
ready for another 30,000 bikers passing through their town." 

Yet, for all the controversial, problematic acts that will cer- 
tainly not appear again, there are many more aspiring talents who 
probably won't be seen at all. As Warden relates: "There are a lot 
of problems with immigration, especially since the newer laws. 
You have to be a relatively well-known band before they can give 
you visas and let you tour, and it's up to literally two people to 
figure out (which foreign bands) have the exposure and can 
generate interest to sustain a tour." 

According to Warden, the quirkily engaging British duo Com-

munards were prevented from performing at UMass because 
immigration officials felt they lacked such visa-earning "star" 
quality, while formative appearances by such recent musical sen- 
sations as smooth funkster Terence Trent D'Arby and Irish rock- 
stress Sinead O'Connor all fell prey to last-minute scheduling 

Yet, despite the frequent frustrations both behind and within 
the college music scene, O'Brien (whose own fond memories 
include organizing a birthday bash for Morris Day, chatting with 
Jane Siberry over tofu dogs, and cooking home-made lasagna for 
the Violent Femmes) feels her own UPC odyssey has "prepared 
me for everything. I've learned more here in the last year than I 
could've learned in any classroom." 

Likewise, Warden has parlayed his own notoriety as UPC 
talent coordinator into a promising career as a freelance stage- 
hand and sound engineer, joking "1 came to this university to get 
an education, not take classes. The UPC experience is more 
important to me. Besides, I seem to know more (about stage 
production) than my Arts Management instructor." 

And the beat goes on . . .

T he University Dancers 
performed a stylishly var- 
ied exhibition at Bowker Audi- 
torium on Dec. 3 and 4. The 
program included ballet, con- 
temporary and jazz works ar- 
ranged to a wide spectrum of 
musical styles. It demonstrated 
the versatility of the student 
performers who each danced in 
two or more pieces, often of 
different styles. 

"Jamming" (photos at left) 
was a new jazz piece by Rich- 
ard Jones. The cast of six 
danced to Charlie Parker and 
Count Basic music with evi-

and quick-changing patterns 
were well served by costumes 
that were designed by Deborah

arth Pagan's Bucket Dance Theatre 
(right) performed at Bowker Audito- 
rium on Feb. 6. Based in Rochester, New 
York, the Bucket Dance Theatre was 
founded by Fagan, (who is considered to 
be one of the most original forces in Amer- 
ican dance today) in 1970. Incorporating 
movement from the Graham technique, 
African and Caribbean dance, disco, bal- 
letic speed, and mimetic gesture, Fagan 
developed a style of dance uniquely his 
own. Bucket technique is proud and self- 
expressive, with erect poses but incredibly 
flexible torsos. Fagan explains his compa- 
ny this way: "Dancers to me are thorough- 
breds of the performing arts. They have to 
be in control of the physical and the intel- 
lectual, the philosophical and the dramat- 
ic, the spacial and the musical." The com- 
pany of twelve dancers performed works 
choreographed by Fagan himself, and the 
performance was part of Arts America 
'88, a mini-festival highlighting American 
performing artists.

■T he Dance Department 
presented the BFA Con- 
cert in Bowker Auditorium 
from April 15 to April 17. The 
exhibition featured dancing by 
students and guests which was 
choreographed entirely by 
members of the UMass facul- 
ty. Each part of the program 
began with a lyrical ballet, cho- 
reographed by Shirly Scheer. 
Her choreography successfully 
captured the harmonious hesi- 
tation of the Debussy music. 
Richard Jones' distinct indi- 
viduality was represented in his 
three pieces: "Deux Amis" de- 
picted a homosexual friendship 
in sensitive terms, "Brubeck," 
inspired by Dave Brubeck's 
jazz, was a cheerful piece with 
clear spatial designs, and "Bo- 
lero" (right) was a beautifully 
constructed piece which began 
with a stunning pyramid effect. 
Andrea Watkins was also rep- 
resented by "Opened Windb- 
low" and Mary Patton by 
"Curving of Lines."

Nancy Wilson's musical 
style has been so diverse over 
the years (from her early pop-

of jazz and blues songs she has 
included in her repertoire), 
that she has been described not 
only as "a jazz singer," "a 
blues singer", and a professor 
emeritus of body language," 
but "a consummate actress" 
and "the complete entertainer" 
as well. 

Her career blossomed in the 
1960's following the release of 
her well received debut single 
"Guess Who I Saw Today." 
After the success of her hit 
song "Tell Me the Truth," the 
prestigious Downbeat and 
Playboy magazine polls voted 
her one of the top singers in the 
country. She was awarded the 
Jazz Heritage Society's "Ebo-

I wasn't lightning that lit 
up the early-morning sky 

on Oct. 15. It was the flash of 
camera bulbs. 

Just as the Old Chapel clock 
struck midnight, about 150 student 
photographers unleashed themselves 
on the campus to take photos for the 
Index's first photo contest, "A Day 
in the Life of UMass." 

The rules were simple: Take pic- 
tures of anything that has to do with 
the University of Massachusetts. 
And that they did. 

When the rolls of film were sub- 
mitted to Index editors the next day, 
nearly 5,000 pictures had been taken 
of the campus, its people and its 

One photographer remarked, "I 
never realized how beautiful the 
campus was until I looked through 
my camera lens." 

Another said, "I never thought 
there was so much to see at UMass." 

The next eight pages showcase 
what we (the editors) believe are the 

,^ks of debat- 
, fflr'ough photos for us 
'n our choices to the 20 
you see here. We do think, however, 
each photo reflects some aspect of 
university life, whether it be the 
young man with his dog or the close- 
up shot of the mailbox, which leads 
off this section. 

So, sit back, enjoy the photos and 
try to recall what you were doing the 
day they were taken.

Karen Drummey, a psychology 
major and resident assistant 
in Orchard Hill, stayed nine 
semesters at UMass and hopes to re- 
turn in the fall as a graduate student. 
After studying for a year in Montre- 
al, she decided to come back for the 
extra semester, partly because of the 
work she did the year before with the 
New Students Program. "I could 
have graduated last semester," she 
explained, "But I stayed because of a 
lot of things the university has to 
offer. Being an R.A. and working 
with the New Students Program 
gave me a lot of information about 
resources I never knew existed." 
However, one thing that has made 
Drummey's extended stay somewhat 
difficult has been budget cuts and 
tuition increases. "I'm really upset 
about the budget cuts because I'm 
independent," Karen said. "I'm pay- 
ing for my own schooling and last 
semester I had five jobs while I was 
here. When I first came in, tuition 
was much cheaper and there was 
more financial aid available to stu- 
dents. Now, so much of that is being 
cut out. As a result, a lot of people 
who could have been good students

and good people for the university 
community are unable to come 

But, Karen said that since the 
number of applicants has been in- 
creasing dramatically each year, so 
has the academic average of those 
accepted. "I'm usually surprised by 
new students, and very impressed," 
she said. "They have a lot of poten- 
tial and I feel this is the kind of envi- 
ronment that will foster that 

After graduation, Karen will most 
likely study in the Human Services 
Department in the Division of Orga- 
nizational Development. However, 
until recently, she hadn't planned on 
going to graduate school. "I never 
even planned on going to college," 
Karen said. "I was one of those peo- 
ple who went because my parents 
wanted me to go. UMass really 
changed that. Now I don't want to 
leave. I'll be going to grad school and 
maybe I'll go even furtljer than

Beverly, MA. 

Ed Cooke likes to be chal- 
lenged by life. More impor- 
tantly, he likes to challenge 
others. An active figure in campus 
politics who organized the massive 
Munson Hall/ CIA protest last fall, 
this progressive-minded history ma- 
jor and Beverly resident is not the 
least bit conservative about sharing 
some intense thoughts: 

On Activism: "There's nobody 
who will let you just walk by with an 
issue (like the CIA recruitment ban) 
without challenging you. You have 
to get people to do things, to get off 
their ass and care about things that 
don't necessarily touch their lives 

On Class: "No matter how hard 
you try, you can never escape your 
class. I don't want to; I love my class. 
The experiences and values you've 
gained . . . from growing up with 
parents who have to struggle to make 
a living . . . always stay with you. 
When my father used to come home 
from work and say he's tired, he 
meant it. He swang a sledgehammer 
all day. You can sit in an office, but 
those kind of values stay with you." 
On Education: "One thing I won't 
miss about school is intellectual mas-

don't necessarily touch their 
lives directly."

terbation. People who think they 
know a lot about what's going on 
don't. And people who don't know 
what's going on don't care. School is 
definitely a middle class environ- 
ment. It's hard for people from the 
working class to come here and deal 
with the reality that's around them. 
It's a different reality from what 
they've grown up with. Everything 
seems really phony, really plastic, 
really fake." 

On How He's Changed: "I've 
learned an awful lot about how to 
deal with people and how to go be- 
yond silly stereotypes. When I came 
here, I was homophobic. Now I'm 
not. When I came here, I wasn't sure 
that Communists were nice people. 
Now I know they are. Other things, 
like feminism, used to scare the hell 
out of me, but now that I understand 
it, I support it. I don't look at people 
anymore and say 'Wow, what a 
weirdo.' . . I've already made a 
change in myself, going from a little 
Reaganite to a Marxist/ Leninist."

Lunenburg, Ma. 

During her years at UMass, 
Becky Lauterbach has been 
greatly involved with the Stu- 
dent Government Associa- 
tion. She has been assistant to the 
speaker for two years and also chair- 
person of the Governmental Affairs 
Committee. Because of jobs like 
these, issues such as student involve- 
ment and awareness on campus have 
become of prime concern to her. "I 
think the fact that we can have a 
rally for an issue such as alcohol and 
have 1,500 people turn out is excel- 
lent," she says. "The existence of 
that kind of involvement shows that 
there is some kind of outreach on 
this campus, a network that does 
work. Although, I wish that students, 
while they do become involved with 
things that directly affect them, 
would become involved with things 
that don't affect them as directly, 
but are still important." 

In addition to gaining technical 
experience from her involvement 
with the S.G.A., she has achieved 
personal satisfaction there as well. 
"I've become much better at work- 
ing with people," said Becky. "As I 
took up certain S.G.A. positions, in

which I had to be unbiased towards 
every senator, I found that I can 
work with both the liberal and con- 
servative sides and that I am good at 
being diplomatic and presenting an 
argument clearly — one that anyone 
is willing to listen to." 

In general, she reflected upon her 
four years here very positively. "I 
turned down a couple of scholarships 
to come here and a lot of people 
laughed in my face for doing that, 
but if I had to do it all over again, I 
would definitely come to this school. 
UMass has an excellent faculty and 
the student body is so diverse. People 
on the outside may think it's a less- 
than-average school, but I've found 
it to be incredible."

Sandor Goldstein 

Marblehead, MA. 

It's an ugly concept, but 
one which senior psychology 
major Sandor Goldstein has tackled 
well during his two year tenure as an 
RA at UMass. 

"Everyone has their own preju- 
dices, to a certain degree" observes 
the Marblehead native, "but being 
an RA helps make you more awake. 
Being Jewish, I'd say I was probably 
a little more aware of prejudice than 
a lot of students coming from small 
towns ... I already felt sensitive to 
issues of racism and oppression, but 
being an RA opens you up even 

Indeed, the even-keeled Hillel co- 
president is grateful for "the empa- 
thy — the perspective" on issues of 
oppression that two years of student 
counseling and interaction have af- 
forded him, citing this unconditional 
appreciation of diversity as the part 
of UMass he will miss most upon 

Photo by Marianne Turley 

"You can't change the 
world and you can't change 
people, but if you can stop 
and make them think . . . 
sometimes that's enough. 

— Sandor Goldstein 


"If you lived in New York, you 
might get the kind of diversity you 
have here at UMass, but other 
places there just aren't that many 
different people," muses Goldstein, 
who realizes "For some people that's 
not a problem, but I think (the cul- 
tural mix) makes (life) more 

Being an RA has sobered Gold- 
stein to the fact that "you can't 
change the world and you can't 
change people, but if you can stop 
and make them think (about their 
prejudiced beliefs), sometimes that's 
enough to do things." 

"That's a realistic goal" notes 
Goldstein with some optimism, a 
goal he will now test in the diverse 
cultural waters beyond UMass.

Michelle Johnson doesn't 
think she would have made 
it as a black engineering stu- 
dent had it not been for the National 
Society of Black Engineers and the 
Minority Engineering Program on 

According to Johnson, "both or- 
ganizations provide a lot of good tu- 
toring and encouragement for mi- 
nority students." 

Interestingly, Johnson, a Danbury, 
Conn, resident, has been involved 
with each organization since her 
freshmen year, serving as secretary 
of the NSBE in 1983 and, later, as 
the group's president. Overall, she 
says this experience enlightened her 
about the inner workings of the uni- 
versity and the feelings of minority 
students, in general. 

"Basically, I've learned the tricks 
of getting around UMass, thus mak- 
ing the university a more comfort- 
able environment in which to live." 

Although she considers the pro- 
tests against racism, which followed 
a 7-day sit-in of the New Africa 
House by minority students in Feb- 
ruary, to be encouraging expressions 
of students rights, Johnson believes

the media has blown some of those 
incidents out of proportion. 

"It's not as bad as some of the pa- 
pers are making it out to be," she 
said. "Some of the incidents are iso- 
lated, others are not. Penn State is 
now having the same problems, so it 
is not just UMass." 

But, she says, UMass students 
should be proud for facing the prob- 
lems head on, rather than allowing 
them to escalate. 

"I think people have begun to 
come out and are now not afraid to 
say what they feel," she said.

Jeff Groux 

Medina, Ohio 

UMass has always seemed a 
hotbed for political activ- 
ism, yet to hear senior histo- 
ry major Jeff Groux explain it, those 
once potent coals of student interest 
and ire are now beginning to dim. 

"Political issues have died down" 
observes the lanky, square-jawed 
Groux. "Four years ago, I can re- 
member this campus was so liberal . . 
. the conservative faction was quite 
small. Now just go to any senate 
meeting — the left is still really vocal, 
but (now) very small." 

A three year member of the 
UMass Board of Governors and an 
officer for Student Security, Groux 
is distressed by the much narrower 
and more introverted focus campus 
political debates have taken. 

According to Groux "(The outcry 
against) the alcohol policy today just 
demonstrates how students are pret- 
ty moderate — They're just not as 
politically motivated anymore. Try 
to get that many students out for any 
political issue and it's impossible, but 
get students out there for something 
that affects students and they go 

Groux credits the influx of afflu-

"The racial issue hasn't 
been blown out of proportion, 
but other issues deserve 
equal time. People are just 
afraid to speak out against 

— Jeff Groux 

ent, Reagan-era conservatives as the 
major reason the sting has gone out 
of student activism, while he believes 
the recent fervor over racial oppres- 
sion and CIA recruiting to be over- 

"The racial problems need to be 
addressed" says Groux "but it's not 
the only problem on campus that 
needs addressing. The problem with 
sexism and female abuse is not cried 
out and it happens more regularly 
(or just as often) as racial occurences 
. . . other issues deserve equal time. 
People are just afraid to speak out 
against them.'-' 

Of his four years at UMass, Groux 
muses "I'm not the narrow-minded 
conservative 1 was when I came in . . 
. the opportunity to meet all different 
types of people . . . really broadened 
my mind. I'll miss being around peo- 
ple my own age (but) I won't miss 
the administration. I won't miss be- 
ing treated like a kid — you grow up 
so much in four years."

Out of all her college memo- 
ries. Dawn Gevry remembers 
most the time she and her 
friend hosted a dorm dance and no- 
body showed up. 

"I was co-president of Webster 
dorm with a friend of mine," she 
said. "And one semester, we decided 
to hold a dorm dance. But, the only 
students who showed up were the 
ones on our floor and that's because 
we kept bugging them." 

She said the main problem she 
faced as co-president of a dormitory 
house council was in motivating stu- 
dents to participate in planned 
events, and she thinks this problem 
carries over into campus-wide activi- 
ties, including political rallies and 

"In general, it's really hard to get 
the word around about a certain 
event because it's such a large uni- 
versity," she said. "Basically, you 
need a gimmick. I think that's what 
gets people." 

Gevry, who began school as a bio- 
chemistry major and later changed 
her course of study to incorporate 
food science, has spent five years, or 
10 semesters, tracing the winds of 

I'm Really Glad I Came 
To UMass. There's So Much 
Going On Here. There Is An 
Opportunity To Learn From 

— Dawn Gevry 

change on campus. In that time, she 
has watched the university battle in- 
ternal strife, budget cuts and intense 
media scrutiny, while always cham- 
pioning its diversity. 

As she says, "I came from a really 
small town and this place is so big. It 
was really different," she said. 
"There were 1 80 people in my grad- 
uating class. I don't even think we 
had any black kids in my school. But, 
here there are people from Europe 
and all over the world. I think that's 
helped me to become aware of 
what's going on in different 

Although Gevry was, at first, ap- 
prehensive about attending the uni- 
versity, looking back she says, "I'm 
really glad I came to UMass. There's 
so much going on here. You see a 
new face everyday. Overall, I think I 
got a lot out of being here. There is 
an opportunity to learn from every- 
thing. In a small school, I don't think 
it would have been ideal."

Cristen Nichols 

Chatham, Mass. 

Cristen Nichols hates math. 
And because the thought of 
adding and subtracting fig- 
ures makes Nichols cringe, she de- 
cided to choose a major that would 
keep her away from numbers. She 
chose English. 

As she says, "I decided to be an 
English major because it's the far- 
thest thing away from math I could 
think of, and, as it turned out, I real- 
ly enjoyed the courses." 

When Nichols, a resident of Chat- 
ham, Mass., arrived on campus near- 
ly four years ago, she was well aware 
of the university's "tainted" reputa- 
tion and, as a result, was uncertain of 
the academic credibility of the 

"My first impression of UMass 
was that it's all parties, no academ- 
ics," she said. 

But, after spending nearly 30 
hours a week studying, she is con- 
vinced of the high academic stan- 
dards set by the university's 

"UMass is a tough school, if you 
put the work into it. You can breeze 
through it if you want to, but, if you 
want to get something out of it, 
you're going to have to work hard," 

"UMass Is A Tough School, If 
You Put The Work Into It. You Can 
Breeze Through If You Want To. 
But, If You Want To Get Something 
Out Of It, You're Going To Have To 
Work Hard." 

— Cristen Nichols 

Nichols said. 

In conjunction with her academic 
work, Nichols has been active in a 
number of campus organizations, 
namely the Union Program Council, 
where she served as program manag- 
er, writing press releases and orga- 
nizing PR campaigns for acts com- 
ing to campus. 

Reminiscing about her experi- 
ences on the UPC staff, Nichols 
finds the creative freedom she had in 
expressing her ideas to be the most 
beneficial aspect of her work. 

"It's a business environment, 
meaning you're put into a situation 
where you're working under people 
as well as with people, but you're 
also in control of what you're doing," 
she said. "You're the one who is 
making the decisions." 

Although Nichols is unsure of 
where she will be in 10 years, she is 
certain of her immediate plans. 

"I'm planning on managing a jazz 
club after graduation, and I hope to 
continue to work in some aspect of 
the music industry," she said.

Bryan Clain is a double-degree 
student majoring in econom- 
ics and philosophy and trans- 
ferred to UMass during his junior 
year. Before that, he attended Hunt- 
er College and the Cooper Union, 
each for two semesters. After finally 
settling down at UMass, he has been 
able to make many comparisons be- 
tween this school and his others and 
explained his reasons for having 
transferred. "One thing a lot of stu- 
dents don't realize," he says, "is the 
advantages of going to a large school 
with dormitories, a rural campus, 
and a lot of interaction between stu- 
dents of different backgrounds and 
disciplines. It's something that a lot 
of people simply take for granted. 
Since my other schools were located 
in New York City, they didn't have 
campuses and they lacked the sense 
of community that you find among 
the students here. Places like the 
campus center and the dorms give 
people the chance to get to know 
each other outside of class. I think 
that's very important." 

Another advantage he cites is the 
"passive" acquisition of knowlege 
through interaction with other stu-

side the classroom as inside

dents. "I've learned as much outside 
the classroom here as inside just by 
opening my eyes to what's around 
me and by getting to know people. I 
became much more exposed to issues 
here just through conversation or 
through seeing the rallies at the Stu- 
dent Union or the marches across 
campus. All of those things have 
made significant contributions to my 
social and intellectual awareness." 

Bryan also went on to explain cer- 
tain advantages his other schools 
offered him over this one. For exam- 
ple, the Cooper Union operates 
strictly on a full scholarship basis 
and Hunter gave him philosophy 
professors of "the highest caliber." 

"They're excellent institutions for 

what they do," Bryan explained, 

"but UMass oferred me more of 

what I was really interested in."

Paul Moylan 

After four years of Economics 
training, senior Paul Moylan 
is doing what comes natural- 
ly: He's teaching English in Mexico. 

As the 26-year-old Falmouth na- 
tive explains it: "I'm studying Span- 
ish right now and I've travelled to 
Mexico before ... I really loved it. I 
like to teach too. I got this job 
through the (UMass) Spanish dept; 
somebody knew a teacher down 
there so I just wrote (him) a letter 
(and was hired)." 

If all this sounds slightly uncon- 
ventional, that's only appropriate; 
Paul Moylan is an unconventional 
guy. Then again, how else would you 
describe a man who's life philosophy 
is "I think everybody's screwed and 
nobody gets screwed enough."? 

The red-haired, sharp-featured 
Moylan is quick to acknowledge 
UMass as the true source for his ad- 
venturous, broad-minded perspec- 
tive on life, and describes his alma 
mater as "a microcosm of a regular 
community. It's like a miniature city 
or town . . . (but) . . . more politically 
active than any other place. It's not 

One aspect of UMass life Moylan 
has found particularly bizarre is the 
fuss and furor over the new alcohol

policy, as he feels "a lot of people's 
priorities are in the wrong place. The 
alcohol rally was probably close to 
10 times as big as the racism and 
financial aid rallies. And I can't real- 
ly say that's good or bad. That's 
what affects people's lives, and if 
they feel like fighting for it, that's 

"I think it's good that the New 
Africa house was taken over," adds 
Moylan, who was proud to see "peo- 
ple getting together to create some 
kind of change ... It helps to wake 
some people up who might be some- 
what apathetic ... I was glad to see it

Moylan himself is anything but 
conservative when he describes how 
much he' he'll miss his involvement 
in the Karate Club and "hanging out 
in the Bluewall and not getting any 
work done. I'll miss being totally sur- 
rounded by my peers (and) the class- 
es .. . but I'm ready to move on. It's 
time ... to take my lessons out into 
the world."

Dedham, Ma. 

While I do appreciate my expe- 
rience at this university, I've 
been very disillusioned with it 
at the same time," says senior En- 
glish major Janet Daly. One issue 
that has added greatly to her disillu- 
sionment is the university's lack of 
attention to certain pressing social 
problems on campus. "For exam- 
ple," she says, "sexual harassment on 
this campus is a disease. I only came 
to realize that because I was a victim 
of it and I saw how it's handled. 
You've got a bunch of people trying 
very unsuccessfully to enforce a poli- 
cy that's supposed to be treated as 
the law. There are tenured members 
of faculty here who've been found 
guilty of multiple violations of sexual 
harassment policy and who are still 
permitted to teach. That's a very 
hard thing to deal with when you 
find you don't have an administra- 
tion that fully supports you and your 

On a more positive note, those 
same issues have motivated Daly to 
take up social causes. "I feel like I 
can more readily identify with peo- 
ple in the university community who 
feel persecuted for one reason or an-

other. In respect to many other so- 
cial issues, UMass is unique in that a 
lot more wounds are openly salted 
here. Other schools may be more 
willing to sweep things under the rug 
in order to preserve the school's rep- 
utation. Here, it's nice that people 
can actually protest things." 

Admittedly, protests can get out 
of hand. According to Daly, "this se- 
mester, we had close to 2,000 stu- 
dents rallying for the right to public 
vomiting, while probably no more 
than 200 showed up for anti-racism 
demonstrations. I think that malice 
is a national student malady — 
UMass is just being the scapegoat 
for it in a lot of cases. Because of 
that, when I first came here, I had 
the attitude that I'd only stay for one 
year because I'm so much better 
than the other students here. Now, I 
wouldn't choose any other school 
over this one. Half of the developing 
you do here isn't just intellectual, it's 
developing as a human being."

JoEUen Saunders 

Wellesly, Mass. 

As a student counselor for the 
College of Arts and Sci- 
ences, who has possibly an- 
swered every conceivable question 
known to students, JoEllen Saunders 
thinks she has a pretty good hand on 
the pulse of student concern. 

"I've talked to thousands of stu- 
dents from all over the university," 
she said. "They (the students) come 
to see peer advisors for just about 
anything. And, as a result, I think 
I've learned a lot about the universi- 
ty itself and what students need to 

Saunders said part of that knowl- 
edge comes from learning to com- 
municate with people. And, if any- 
one is an expert at communication, it 
is Saunders, who majored in the sub- 
ject while attending the university. 

"I'm in the personal communica- 
tions major basically because com- 
municating cross-culturally is an im- 
portant aspect of our society and 
people tend not to recognize that," 
she said. "People are really quick to 
criticize people who have a strong 
accent or who are foreign to Ameri- 
can culture. Very basically, you can't

get an understanding of what it's like 
to be a foreigner until you've actual- 
ly been transplanted or have gone to 
another country." 

Saunders, however, is well-ac- 
quainted with the confusion and fear 
that can be associated with visiting a 
foreign land. So far, she has visited 
Poland and Costa Rica, two coun- 
tries, she says are not on the "hot- 
countries-to-visit list." 

"It was an interesting experience 
because you don't really get to see 
inside Soviet block countries and the 
news that you hear through the me- 
dia usually focuses on violence. It's 
never quite as the news makes it out 
to be." 

She thinks the same is true when it 
comes to the media's coverage of the 
recent racial conflicts that have be- 
set the university. 

"The media will take a small pic- 
ture and blow it up to make it every- 
one's life," she said. "Personally, I've 
never had any problem here and I've 
been here for four years."

Dwayne Warren is driven. He 
is one student who can look 
back on his college career 
and honestly say he has accom- 
plished something. 

Afterall, the tireless student activ- 
ist was a key player in the February 
sit-in of the New Africa House by 
minority students. He was president 
of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, 
served on both the Third World Cau- 
cus and the Student Senate, and was 
on the board of directors of the Unit- 
ed Christian Foundation. 

He says these activities did not de- 
tract from his education, but rather 
added to it. 

"1 look at UMass as a laboratory 
for leadership," he said. "You can 
come here and you can design your 
life plan and, if it works here, it will 
probably work anywhere. Overall, I 
think I've gotten a lot of great prac- 
tice here — a lot of teaching and a lot

ry for leadership. You can

of learning experiences here that are 
going to help me down the road." 

Warren thanks the university for 
opening his mind to a variety of is- 
sues he was once ignorant to. 

"I found ways that I really was 
sexist and I was apalled," he said. 
"And I'm battling those ways now. 
Things concerning handicap accessi- 
bility, you're not really sensitive to 
them until you start debating the is- 
sues and representing these people." 

He is afraid such willingness to 
protest and organize debates on 
campus will be absent outside uni- 
versity walls. 

"I think on a college campus, 
there's a lot more idealogical in- 
volvement. People get involved be- 
cause they're a republican or a dem- 
ocrat. But, in society, I think you 
have a lot more apathy to deal with."

Caren Walker 

Roslindale, Ma. 

Caren Walker is one of three 
coordinators of the Sylvan 
Cultural society located in 
Cashin House. The organization's 
goal, according to Caren, is to pro- 
vide programs and projects aimed to 
develop self-awareness, cultural un- 
derstanding, leadership skills and ac- 
ademic improvement for all mem- 
bers of the UMass community. 
"Basically," she says, "it seems like 
third world students, or people of 
color separate themselves on campus 
and you begin to see that there's a 
problem here. We try to do some- 
thing about that through S.C.S. We 
try to unite people. In that respect, I 
think we've done a lot." 

Although S.C.S. is an organiza- 
tion built to serve the community, it 
has provided Caren with personal 
satisfaction as well. "I definitely de- 
veloped my leadership and organiza- 
tional skills. Those are things that 
will help me to get ready for the real 
world. This spring, we focused on the 
jazz festival. We've had internation- 
al food fests too. All of those things 
take a lot of organizing and I think 
that's helped me to grow. After do-

ing this for four years, I can see how 
my mind has expanded and I can 
also see my knowledge being passed 
on to Phil and Stephanie (the other 
S.C.S. coordinators). I think I've 
matured a lot." 

But Caren attributes the acquisi- 
tion of such growth and knowledge 
not only to her involvement with 
S.C.S., but also to four years of col- 
lege in general. "College is one big 
learning experience," she says. "You 
learn what's right and what's wrong, 
what to do and what not to do. Also, 
UMass has an especially diverse 
campus and that's good. That's edu- 
cational. UMass is a place where 
there are a lot of problems as far as 
racism is concerned, but it's also a 
place where you've got the opportu- 
nity to learn a lot from people with 
different backgrounds and cultures. 
It's just that with some people, you 
have to help them to learn. And help 
them grow."

As a second year resident 
assistant in Dickinson 
dorm, and former co- 
president of Hillel, Eric has con- 
cerned himself with many of the so- 
cial and racial issues at UMass. "My 
whole perspective has changed on 
people in general," he says. "Coming 
from a predominantly Jewish high 
school (75-80%), it was difficult to 
get more than one perspective on 
things. That changed, though, when 
I came to college and became an 
R.A. By being an R.A., you get to 
see other people's points of view. 
You get to understand how they 
think, but you also learn to under- 
stand that you have your own preju- 
dices as well." However, "prejudices 
are something that everyone has," he 
explained. "It's not so terrible to 
have prejudices, but it is terrible to 
have them and not admit it, or not do 
anything about it." Because of the 

One of Marisa's most impor- 
tant activities while at 
UMass was her involve- 
ment with Hillel. She was treasurer 
of the R.S.O. for the 1987-88 school 
year and said she's benefitted from it 
not only in terms of financial knowl- 
edge, but also in the way of social 
support and religious awareness. 
"Learning how to manage money 
and communicate with a large group 
of people was important to me," she 
said. "But what was even more im- 
portant was the social aspect of Hil- 
lel. The office is a comfortable place 
to meet people. It's like having an- 
other family." As far as religion 
goes, Marisa became more involved 
with Judaism when she came to col-

racial incidents that occurred on 
campus this past year, prejudice and 
social awareness have been the sub- 
jects of much conversation, but "it's 
something that some people are 
more open to than others," Eric said. 
"Some people say they can't stand 
hearing all the talk about these kinds 
of issues. That, in itself, can make an 
R.A.'s job a lot harder because our 
job is to educate and that's hard to 
do when people don't want the edu- 
cation." He went on to explain that 
one reason for such problems is that 
people are coming from a "purely 
white perspective." "I've been op- 
pressed because I'm Jewish, so, in a 
sense, I can understand certain as- 
pects of what's happening that other 
people can't. I think too many people 
aren't interested in stepping out of 
their own skin for a while and trying 
to understand someone else's point 
of view."

lege. "I wasn't very religious when I 
was in high school. I knew I was 
interested in it, but since there 
weren't many Jewish people in my 
town, I didn't have much contact 
with it or support for it. Then I came 
to UMass," she said. "There are 
3,000 Jewish students here; that's 
the support group I was looking for. 
Because of them, I gained a lot of 
knowledge about my background 
and culture." 

When asked what she will remem- 
ber most about the university, she 
replied, "The diversity of students. 
Definitely. I come from a fairly con- 
servative town and I never really 
came into contact with people of

such different backgrounds. I like 
the idea that you can be any kind of 
person you want here and there will 
always be at least one other person 
like you." 

As a campus tour guide, Marisa 
had the chance to impress upon peo- 
ple some of the things she thinks are 
an important part of any student's 
college career. "UMass is the kind of 
place where you get out of it exactly 
what you put into it. If you take the

upper level classes and if you put the 
effort into it, then you can do well," 
she said. "I've taken classes in the 
honors department and at Amherst 
college and I think that the classes 
here are comparable to what you 
find at the Ivy Leagues. Someone 
asked me on a tour once if I regret- 
ted coming here or if I would have 
rather gone somewhere else. Looking 
back on it, I'm very happy I came 
here. Absolutely."

UMass Graduates 4,661 

"A peasant — or a graduate — 
must stand a very long time on a 
hillside with his mouth open before a 
roast duck flies in." 

Those were the words of wisdom 
author and 1963 alumnus Paul Ther- 
oux offered the 4,661 members of 
this year's, the 118th graduating 

The commencement ceremonies 
got under way promptly at 10 a.m. 
on Sunday, May 22, as faculty mem- 
bers, draped in colorful academic 
robes filed into the Warren McGuirk 
Alumni Stadium. Then came the 
real stars of the day's celebrations - 
the graduates. 

Dressed in billowy black gowns, 
bachelor degree recipients from the 
university's eight schools and col- 
leges slowly marched into the stadi- 
um to be seated next to friends and 
fellow classmates. 

Chancellor Joseph Duffey kicked 
off the ceremonies, and was followed 
by President David Knapp, Theroux 
and student speaker Lynne Murphy.

With an all-campus rope pull, bal- 
loons and a campus-wide barbecue, 
the University of Massachusetts in 
Amherst celebrated its 125th birth- 
day on April 29. 

President David Knapp kicked off 
the festivities with a speech to mem- 
bers of a noontime convocation in 
the Fine Arts Center. 

"We are on the threshold of great- 
ness," Knapp told the convocation. 
"But that last mile may be the most 
difficult. We must and will convince 
the people to go that last mile. We 
must be second to none." 

The university was incorporated 
on April 29, 1863 after President 
Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill 
Act of 1862, which established land 
grants for state-owned colleges and 

Among those on hand to partici- 
pate in the day's celebrations were 
Chancellor Joseph Duffey and John 
Lederle, who served as the school's 
president from 1960 to 1970.

A Feu) WotJi Fum Bekid Tk Oeik 

In September, our managing editor, John Do- 
herty, in a stroke of genious, tagged the Index 
"The Little Yearbook that Could." He thought 
it would be a clever slogan we could use when 
advertising the book. 

I, on the other hand, thought it was the corniest 
saying I had ever heard. We, one of the largest year- 
books in the Commonwealth, being compared to a 
wimpy little train. Come on! 

But, after thinking about it for a while, I realized 
that the phrase summed up rather nicely what the 
Index is all about. 

After all, ever since we lost our funding in 1985, the 
yearbook has faced a number of difficulties, namely 
financial troubles, bad press and little administrative 
support. And, to say the least, each year our critics 
have dug our grave for us even before we have begun 
production in October. Nevertheless, the Index has 
overcome these obstacles, perservering to produce an 
award-winning annual publication that is representa- 
tive of the university. 

This year was especially productive for the Index. 
Most notably, the 1988 edition is the first ever to 
contain advertising — seven pages of corporate ads 
and 21 pages of Ads for Grads, where parents paid a 
fee and composed congratulatory messages to their 
graduating sons or daughters to have them printed in 
the Index. By late May, we had received 165 ads, a 
respectable showing for a first-time outing. Not only 
did these ads generate needed revenue, but they also 
increased overall booksales. 

In light of these successes, the Undergraduate Stu- 
dent Senate voted in March to absorb the book's re- 
maining deficit. In doing so, the Senate helped in 
setting the Index on a new course. Now, we start the 
new year fresh, with a clean slate. And, if lady luck 
doesn't turn her back on us, we'll sail through the year 


But, regardless of what anyone says, the success of 
this year's Index is due mainly to the efforts of the 
1988 staff. Unlike in years past, this year we had only 
five returning members to the staff, along with 17 new 

Of those 17, probably 12 had never even set eyes on 
a photo cropper or layout sheet. Yet, the talent and 
creativity demonstrated by the staff is evident 
throughout the book. This year, editors took the liber- 
ty to experiment with different shades of grey, back- 
ground shadows and artwork, making for better look- 
ing and more striking sections. 

In all, the editors did a fantastic job, and now I'd 
like to thank each one of them. 

John: I looked to you as a source of creative energy 
and comic relief. Your eye for detail and commitment 
to perfection coupled with your zany sense of humor 
pulled us through the rough times and made for an 
excellent book. Thanks. 

Clayton: Although we had different feelings and 
opinions about a number of things this past year, your 
dedication to keeping the Index spirit alive never fal- 
tered. Your work to convince the Senate to absorb our 
deficit was commendable and I thank you. 

Susan: You make the best dinners, especially Blue- 
fish. And your work as business manager/sports editor 
wasn't too shabby either. But, seriously, thanks for two 
things. First, for your time and, second, for teaching 
me how to drive a standard shift. 

Mary: Whoever says you're quiet doesn't know the 
Mary I do. It was nice to see you finally open up. You 
worked hard on the Academics section and it shows. 
Thanks. By the way, your ghost stories rival those of 
Peter Straub.

Index photo editor Renee Gallant spent countless hours scurrying around campus snapping photos. Here 
she is caught on the other side of the lens by fellow photographer Eric Goldman. 

Kristin: I'll never forget the time Ope- 
lina decided to take a little break on us, 
right in the center of Amherst. Your reac- 
tion was priceless and so was your work as 
Academics editor. 

Marianne: You weren't afraid to let me 
know when things weren't going quite 
right and I appreciated that. You did a lot 
with the Organizations section. It looks 
great. Thanks. 

Kimberly: You took on a tough section 
mid-year, yet your enthusiasm and deter- 
mination to get things done was always 
evident. Thanks. 

Ellen and Karen: There was a lot of 
confusion concerning your responsibilities 
as sports editors. Yet, the two of you stuck 
by the Index despite the frustration and 
that, in itself is admirable. 

Renee: A hearty thanks to our own Ma- 
dame Legumes. I never once had to worry 
about the quality or quantity of photos. 
You were always efficient, organized, en- 
ergetic and fun. Thanks. 

Jen: If you should ever get bored with 
your chosen profession, you could always 
become an auto mechanic. Believe me, if it 
weren't for you, John, Sue and I would 
probably still be stuck in Southwest with a 
flat tire. 

Jody: You did a lot for the News sec-

Words From Behind The Desk/305 

Gray &klcs Shroud Ded Hot Funk 

Although UMass' spring semester came 
to life in a promising blaze of flora and 
balmy air, many of the season's most 
enthusiastically anticipated concerts and 
outdoor activities were menaced by ashen 
skies and rainy mists. 

April 22nd's eccentrically raucous 

Eastside Concert was the first casualty of 
the conspiring elements, with Fishbone's 
outrageous punk-rapping and the Red Hot 
Chili Peppers' testosterone-laced 
histrionics nearly drowned out by the 
oppressive chill of the day. 

Above: The Red Hot Chili Peppers' 
borishly macho, testosterone-laced his- 
trionics were a highlight of April 
22nd's Eastside Concert. Right: A stu- 
dent takes a break from the pulsating 
rythms at the Eastside Concert to en- 
joy a Calzone.

Similarly beseiged by ominous 
skies, the rowdy and unruffable 
Romantics counted on their 
seductive brand of dance-rock to 
stave off potential showers, while 
legendary rock'n roll innovator 
Chuck Berry became his own 
formidable force of nature to 
create the only true "thunder" of 
May Ist's Southwest Concert. 

May Sth's much-heralded UPC 
Concert fared best of all, with 
initial clouds quickly dispersing 
under the luminous and eclectic 
influence of quirky chanteuse Jane 
Siberry, the passionate quartet 
The Alarm, and bluesy soulmaster 
Robert Cray. Over 10,000 UMass 
students and Amherst residents 
alike surrendered themselves to 
the day's snappy, infectious 
groove, making UPC's season- 
ending extravaganza the hottest 
UMass concert in both climate, 
public interest, and performer

The funk and frolic of UPC's concert stage 
was perfectly balanced by the pride and 
pageantry of the ROTC's annual commissioning 
ceremony, wherein 40 UMass Army and Air 
Force cadets were bestowed with elevated 
military positions and responsibilities under the 
auspicious dome of Bowker Auditorium. 

This vibrant collage of spring activities 
reached its natural apex on May 22, as a 
technicolor sea of over 30,000 parents and 
well-wishers swept the stands of Warren 
McGuirk Alumni Stadium to celebrate the 
triumphant graduation of UMass' vibrant class 
of 1988.

Individuality Deigns Supreme 

Throughout the climactic 
proceedings, the graduation field 
remained a billowy black quilt 
of creative diversity, with many 
graduates adorning their 
formerly sedate robes and caps 
with unique patterns, daring 
sculpture, and personalized 
messages to their misty-eyed 
loved ones in attendance. 
Indeed, whether clowning with 
longtime pals or sitting in quiet 
introspection, the class of 1988 
presented nothing less than a 
unified, caring front; an 
"extended family" whose loving 
bonds stood tall above the 
finality of the day.

Countdown ... To Destiny! 

Then, with an 
upsurging shower of 
tassled hats and 
balloons, UMass' 118th 
graduation ceremony 
concluded its fluid 80 
minute run amidst a 
torrent of embracing 
figures and joyous tears. 
As a slow-dispersing 
swarm of balloons faded 
gently over the Amherst 
horizon, so many a 
graduate's future 
aspirations must have 
soared along with them; 
sleek and buoyant 
yearnings for a colorful 
and prosperous new life . 
. . beyond the Valley.
