In 1863, a land grant was signed which created a college that would 
provide an education for young men in the farming and agricultur- 
al professions, and who could not afford entry into the private 
schools in the state. 

Amherst, a small, rural, farm town in Western Massachusetts was 
chosen as the site of this new institution. 

125 years later, while a great many things have changed, including the 
name of the institution twice, many things, like the land and some of the 
original buildings on it, continue to stay the same. 

The Index Yearbook, now celebrating its 120th anniversary, has fol- 
lowed the changes-from the tiny conception of Massachusetts Agricultur- 
al College in 1 863 all the way to what now stands as the centerpiece of 
public institutions of higher education in Massachusetts. 
The 1988-89 academic year proved no exception. From registration

mencement exercises, the In-

to day, month to month, and 
semester to semester happen- 
ings and events at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

It was a year that saw this 
student body make significant 
contributions to this campus 
and to the campus community. 

As in the past, this year the 
student body came together to 
further pursue excellence in 
academic standards and in 
moral and ethical principles. 
The students on this campus 
banded together to protest un- 
fortunate budget cuts and to 
show care and compassion for 
the less fortunate. 

In the fall, this student body 
took to heart the story of Da- 
vid, a yound boy dying of Leu- 
kemia, and through a mass ef-

The student body also came to- 
gether to stand up for human rights 
and be committed against issues of 
human oppression. Despite differ-

and took a determined stance 
against oppression ahd adopted a

Sylvan/ 19 




At first, I was told that Sylvan was supposedly built as 
housing for graduate students who wanted to live on campus. 
Somehow, that got turned around, and, instead, Sylvan was 
going to be a residential area for wealthy students, who would 
pay more than anyone else on campus for a bedroom and a 
walk-in closet, along with a bathroom that was to be shared 
with two or three other students. Well, the walk-in closet idea 
faded into the woodwork and was replaced with the idea of the 
"study area," where each student would pay for a bedroom, a 
semi-private bathroom, and a private study lounge. 

Somewhere along the line, this whole idea bombed, and 
Sylvan became what it is today- a residential area consisting of 
two singles (so that's what happened to the walk-in closets!), 
three doubles, a private lounge, and a bathroom. It's the 
closest thing on campus to apartment-like living, and the ideal 
co-ed situation, where the individual suites are single-sex, but 
the floors are co-ed. And the idea that wealthy students live in 
Sylvan has flown out the window. Sure, 80% of all singles are 
located in Sylvan, but who would want to pay more money for 
less space?

Orchard Hill 23 






Ever since its haphazard construction nearly 
twenty-five years ago, Orchard Hill has 
remained faithful to the relaxed atmosphere its 
founders had hoped for. 

"We love it here. The atmosphere is very nat- 
ural," said Faith Hallett, as she completed her 
first year as a resident of Field House, then an 
all-female dormitory, in 1965. Sentiments like 
Hallett's are still being expressed from Hill resi- 
dents today. Michelle Weinstock, sophomore 
political science major, echoes those first opin- 
ions of living on top of the campus, saying that 
"It's a pretty much 'live-and-let-live' atmo- 
sphere up here." 

This attitude is what attracted those first resi- 
dents to Orchard Hill, which at the time was 
almost completely cut off from the rest of cam- 
pus. When Orchard Hill officially opened, there 
was still about Iwo weeks of labor yet to be 
completed. Many complaints today from Hill 
residents include elevators that run at a snail's 
pace, travelling up and down the hill in the ice 
and snow of winter, and the hassle of single-sex 
bathrooms. But imagine the complaints that 
were generated in a living arrangement where 
there was no hot water, no heat, no mail system, 
and where taking a shower meant walking over 
to Van Meter through lots of mud, as the area 
was not yet seeded for grass. 

On the whole, things have not changed all 
that much. Hill residents still possess a great 
deal of happiness in their home. In 1989, resi- 
dents pride themselves in the Hill's diversity and 
its laid-back, friendly and supportive atmo- 

Of course, students are still students. Many a 
beer bottle has been thrown off one of the many 
balconies surrounding the Bowl, and almost all 
Hill residents have either partaken in or wit- 
nessed a "Bowl War" whenever a bored insom- 
niac gets the sadistic urge to scream obscenities 
or sing the themes of late-night television shows. 

Even after all the changes and turmoil of the 
past two decades, one thing stays the same — 
that hill.

Northeast 27 


28/ Northeast 



Once upon a time, there were nine sin- 
gle-sex dormitories that popped up 
around an area that came to be known as 
the "Quad." Life in the "Quad" was sim- 
ple and full of bliss, but there was one 
thing no one had thought of — the passage 
of time, and how this happy little commu- 
nity would change. Gradually dorms shed 
their conservative natures and made co- 
educational living an opportunity for any- 
one. Today single-sex residence halls are 
becoming extinct, as Knowlton and Ham- 
lin are the only two in Northeast to be part 
of this exotic and threatened species. Yet, 
as poodle skirts are replaced with spiked 
hair, Northeast lives on, and all live happi- 
ly ever after.

THE 1975 




(6 "IT J hy would anyone want to live there? It's so huge. 
W I'd get lost!" 

This is a common reaction among people who 
have never lived in Southwest. But in spite of some negative 
images, Southwest is definitely doing something right. Accord- 
ing to the Housing Assignment Office, Southwest by far gets 
the most requests from students wishing to live on campus. 

There's one thing about Southwest that can't be refuted — 
there's always something going on. Says Stephanie Lusen, 
sophomore anthropology major, "I've come home at 3 or 4 in 
the morning or stopped off in my room at 1 or 2 in the 
afternoon, and I have always seen someone playing basketball 
on the Horseshoe or heard music blasting from somewhere." 

Indeed, from the hustle and bustle of Munchy's with the 
never-ending music of the juke box to the upheaval caused as a 
result of the police sub-station and the construction of the new 
parking lot, which decreased the size of the playing fields, 
never can it be said that Southwest is boring. Five thousand 
students and a plethora of activities going on there will forever 
prove that statement wrong.

Last names of students interviewed in 
this story Iiare been witiield at their re- 

When MaryAnne decided last year to 
attend the University of Massachusetts 
in Amherst, she wondered how she was 
going to handle the presence of alcohol 
and drugs on campus. 

A reformed alcohol user and member 
of an alcoholic household, the 23-year- 
old English/history major lived with the 
effects of substance abuse most of her 
life and wanted to avoid it now. 

"There was a point when I just decided 
to stop," she said. 

She found her refuge on the Wellness 
Corridor, a chemical-free living environ- 
ment in the basement of Baker residence 
hall, established in the spring of last year 
by Julie B. Elkins, a member of the uni- 
versity's residence staff. 

"My eyes were opened," MaryAnne 
said. "I never knew how alcohol affected 
me until I came here. I thank God every- 
day for everything I've learned on this 

Stories similar to MaryAnne's are not 
uncommon among the 1 1 other residents 
of the corridor. Some are recovering al- 
coholics or drug abusers, while others 
have simply chosen to live on the corridor 
because of its chemical-free atmosphere. 

Jeff, 19, a sophomore with a School of 
Management major, chose to live on the 
corridor after watching many of his 
friends fall victim to some of the prob- 
lems associated with alcohol abuse. 

"I felt like I was being exposed to peo- 
ple who drink 24 hours a day," he said. 
"By living on this floor, I now choose to 
see that side of life when I want to. 

Currently the only corridor of its kind 
at a major university in the nation, it was 
founded on the premise that it would pro- 
vide support to any student who chose to 
live without alcohol or drugs. 

Carroll McGrath, assistant residence 
director of the Baker, Chadbourne and 
Greenough residence hall cluster, point- 
ed out that "It's unique to the university. 
Not only does the corridor provide a 
peaceful living environment for recover- 
ing alcoholics or drug users, it is also a 
supportive atmosphere for people from 
families with alcoholics." 

Although the backgrounds of the cor- 
ridor's residents vary, they all share a 
common goal, according to McGrath. 

"It's a healthy goal," she said. "It's a 
common bond we all share — to make it 
okay to talk about personal issues. To 
have it be okay." 

Twenty-one-year-old Gus, a political 
science major, echoed McGrath's point 
and added that part of this goal involves 
a little bit of self-exploration. 

"By coming here, we learn how to cope 

with drug abuse, alcohol abuse, our own 
personalities, and the personalities of 
others," he said. "You learn how to ac- 
cept other people's lifestyles and move on 
with your own." 

Indeed, his floormates agree that they 
would not be able to cope without the 
support of their peers. 

"Whether it's three in the afternoon or 
two in the morning," said MaryAnne, 
"there is always a shoulder for me to cry 
on. That's why I'm here, because of these 

Another attraction the floor members 
cited was the fact that each member is 
allowed to live his or her own life free of 
any real restrictions. No floor activity is 
mandatory. All that is needed, said one 
floor member, is an open mind. 

"We didn't want this to be an academ- 
ic corridor," McGrath said. "We didn't, 
for example, want this to be the study of 
alcoholism. I think people are more in- 
terested in developing the community 
spirit of the corridor." 

To promote that spirit often means 
holding each other up, even if one stum- 
bles along the way. 

"I think we all would be hurt if some- 
one slipped or fell off the wagon," said 
MaryAnne. "I think we would all want to 
help that person. You can't condemn 
somebody for a chemical addiction." 

Jeff added that everyone is pulling for 
the same ideal. "The support and togeth- 
erness of the floormates, I think, might 
be incentive enough for a person not to 
drink or do drugs." 

Sometimes, though, floor members 
must contend with the stereotypes that 
unknowing students might attach to their 
chemical-free lifestyle. 

Margaret, a 19-year-old HRTA ma- 
jor, recalled when, "I was talking to a 
group of people and the conversation got 
around to where I lived. I told them the 
Wellness corridor, and one of them said, 
'Oh, it must be quiet down there.' It was 
as if that person assumed that just be- 
cause we don't use drugs or alcohol, 
we're boring. The truth is, we play our 
stereos as loud as anyone else." 

"We don't preach," Margaret contin- 
ues, "We just want to raise people's 
awareness, to let it be known that there is 
an alternative available."

Despite the shadows of controversy 
cast by Alpha Tau Gamma's haz- 
ing practices and Theta Chi's question- 
able behavior while on probation, the 
Greek community still managed to find 
its place in the sun during 1989. 

Leading this year's pack of selfless 
greek Samaritans were the brothers of 
Delta Upsilon, who were presented with 
the greek community's "Best Philan- 
thropy" award for their successful keg 
roll in support of the Jimmy Fund. 

Not to be outdone, the Sigma Epsi- 
lon fraternity sponsored its own fun- 
draiser for the "Make a Wish" founda- 
tion (which helps terminally ill patients 
fulfill their dreams) as well as coordi- 
nating the Greek area bulb planting 
project, wherein 10,000 daffodil seeds 
were speckled around the campus. 

The successful series of Greek-spon- 
sored Blood Drives continued with Phi 
Mu Delta's noble Spring efforts, while 
Sigma Sigma Sigma sister InAh Choi 
and Lambda Chi Alpha brother Steven 
Ilmrud were designated "Greek Wom-

thropy and social concern.

Off Campus 43 

Zoo-Mass is more than the disparaging 
word that students have been using to slan- 
der the home away from home that they 
love to hate. 

Zoo-Mass is real, but it's no "Animal 
House." The bi-peds in the high rises and 
low rises throughout the campus are keep- 
ers of exotic roommates that the Housing 
Office would never assign. 

The best kept secret of homeless resi- 
dents involve' a menagerie of pythons, 
boas, tarantulas, scorpions, piranhas, 
mice, rats, guinea pigs and hamsters. The 
taste for unusual pets has grown so large 
that area pet stores have a hard time keep- 
ing there varmits in stock. 

All of the "zoo keepers" are housed at 
undisclosed addresses to protect the inno- 
cent. Even their corridor mates - in many 
cases - don't know what animals are shar- 
ing their cages. And the RA's don't want 
to know, as long as the nuisances don't 
become public. 

A Southwest resident for over a year is 
Tito, a 5y2-foot Royal python. Living on 
a fine diet of white mice, she has been 
sharing bed and bath with her owner since 
she was a baby. 

Tito's glass cage is almost always uncov- 
ered to let her roam about the dorm room 
as she pleases. When Tito is not slithering 
around the heating pipes or lounging in 
her owner's bed, she is visiting elementary 
schools for show and tell. With the help of 
her owner, she teaches children the fasci- 
nating behaviors of these reptiles. Grades 
one through four learn that snakes, trained 
in the proper way, can become friends of 

A Bambo tarantula, named Sheeba, has 
also been keeping out of sight on campus, 
while living on a strict diet of baby crick- 
ets. Besides crawling on the rug and couch, 
Sheeba likes to stay up at night and harass 
(but seldom kills) the several baby crickets 
who cohabit her cage. Sheeba's favorite 
pastime is crawling on her owner's shoul- 
der as he strolls the dorm to varied reac- 

tions of dorm mates sworn to secrecy. 

An undisclosed floor in Orchard Hill is 
a haven for members of the rodent family. 
In a room on the far end of the hall one 
will find Kristin and Kate, two albino rats. 
The two are friendly and comfortable with 
the many members of their floor, but 
sometimes have a hard time keeping still. 
The two enjoy racing down the hall late at 
night, occasionally darting into a room 
here and there to explore. Kristin and 
Kate have been so widely accepted on the

and the administration, all the animals in resi- 
dence halls are not stuffed. 

floor that some people who used to scream 
in fear at the sight of them now accept 
them with open arms. 

Sometimes Kristin and Kate can be seen 
frolicking with other non-traditional resi- 
dence hall members, like two black mice 
down the hall who aren't too interested in 
making friends, but prefer to spend their 
time playing with the cedar shavings in 
their cage, or Mephistopheles or "Meph," 
another rat down the hall. Meph doesn't 
really have too much free time these days, 
however, because she has recently become 
the proud mother of a litter of babies who 
demand her constant care. Still, she likes 
to get away from it all every once in a 
while with a quick jog around her owner's 
room to get back in shape. 

Some pets are not so lucky. Speedy is a 
goldfish that seldom sees outside of his 
room. This doesn't dampen his spirits, 
though, because most of his time is spent 
around colorful ceramic toy huts found in 
his tank. 

On the other hand, Barney, a year-old 
hamster, becomes the life of the floor on 
Saturday nights. After the bars close and 
the parties end, Barney is visited by her 
floor mates and taken out to play. Crawl- 
ing around the halls and snooping under 
desks, she gets enough exercise to last a 

Saturday night is also an exciting time 
for Giblet, a two-year-old parakeet. 
Nightime is her favorite time, when she 
likes to exercise her voice with a song. 
Unlike other nights of the week, Giblet 
can chirp to her heart's content, for no- 
body has to worry about being kept up the 
night before an early class. 

Thus, Zoo-Mass has become an institu- 
tion of face-less residents who slither, 
crawl, and scurry among the student body. 
Although it is against the rules to house 
such roommates, local authorities are 
blinking as long as these pets are quiet, 
clean, and, most importantly, out of sight.

^^ ^ ou didn't have to read the Wall Street 

^^m at Journal to realize that soap was 1989's 

^ mMm most valuable student commodity. 

■Tj^y No, this soap was not the showering 

mm kind, although you may have needed 

" some well-placed towels to staunch a 

sudden flow of tears. We're talking soap opera here, 

and for the 50-plus UMass students who crowded the 

TV lounge of Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center 

each afternoon, the less-than-squeaky-clean antics of 

their favorite soap opera characters replaced draft 

beer and pizza as the cleansing agent of choice for 

their social and academic frustrations. 

"It's the ultimate escape," declares Neil Massa, a 
19-year-old sophomore communication major and 12- 
year veteran soap watcher. 

"If I'm feeling down about classes or something in 
my private life, (soap watching) is the perfect way to 
drain what I'm holding in. When I cry over some sad 
twist on a soap I'll also release the real frustrations 
I've been hiding ... It gives me an excuse to release 
them, plus, you realize that the (soap characters') 
problems are much worse than yours will ever be . . . 
In real life, someone's baby may be dead or some 
woman might be a rape victim, and that's nowhere 
near as bad as a low grade. The fantastical aspects of 
these stories don't really cloud 
your percep-

tion of reality . . . they add perspective." 

"It is a nice escape," agrees senior journalism 

major John MacMillan, who recently walked out 

in the middle of a heated political debate to lather 

up with his favorite nightime soap, "Knots 


"Soap watching can be like visiting friends," 
says MacMillan. "The "Knots" gang could be 
the neighbors next door . . . backstabbing, 
blackmailing neighbors though they may be." 
Taking into account the all-to-real aca- 
demic drama of their hectic lives, just how 
far would UMass students go to keep up 
with these "neighbors?" 
"I'd skip a class at the drop of a hat for 
a soap," says Massa, who otherwise stays 
in the thick of the suds by subscribing to 
Soap Opera Digest and making regular 
calls to Soap Hotline (a taped summary 
of all the serial cliffhangers). 
"I try to work my classes around the soaps," 
Massa admits. "Even when everything seems 
unstable around me, I can look to the soap for conti- 
nuity . . . It's nice to be able to count on these charac- 
ters acting the same way and doing the same thing, 
day after day. Sometimes I even see them more than 
my real friends."

Above: Homewrecker extraordinaire Abby Ewing (Donna Mills) may not be a 
welcome presence to her neighbors in "Knots Landing", but UMass viewers eagerly 
ushered her into their rooms. Right: The 'Dallas' villain J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) 
could probably give SOM majors a stimulating lesson in corporate "relations." 

"It seems stupid to relate to (soap characters) that 
way, but you do," adds 18-year-old freshman education 
major Amy McManus. "You don't really relate to a 
gameshow, but you can watch a soap romance or 
conflict and think 'Oh my God! That's just like me 
and so-and-so.' It's so interesting to see if they deal 
with the same problems better than we do." 

Yet, despite the element of fantasy, a soap's over- 
blown conflicts can cause real-life rifts in the social 
activities of the viewer. 

"When 'Knots Landing' is on, I won't even talk 
to my girlfriend," laughs Massa, who recalled a 
recent trip to Texas where "I didn't get a tan 
because I stayed in to watch soaps all day. Feed- 
ing the cows just wasn't as interesting to me." 

Sophomore Spanish major Susan Shea faced a 
soap-induced crisis of a different kind when her 
favorite soap hero, Lujack of 'Guiding Light,' 
was killed off amidst real emotional turmoil in 
her life. 

"I happened to be breaking up with my boyfriend at __ 

the same time that Lujack was killed in a yacht explo- '^'' ''''"to 
sion," explains Shea. It was all just too much. I cried for 

a week, I was so upset. All of a sudden, my boyfriend 
was gone and Lujack was dead ... I guess I was really 
mourning. It was like losing everyone." 

Such emotional intensity was a welcome risk for 
Massa, who feels that despite their melodramatics, 
soap operas can be the best social issues educators for 
the viewing masses. 

"It's helpful to see how soap families deal with such 
pressing issues as date rape and homosexuality. If I 
hadn't watched the soaps myself, I wouldn't have 
understood the trauma a woman goes through in rape. 
Soap plots can really open your eyes to the problems 
faced by people of different ethnic backgrounds and 
social status . . . (and) . . . makes us see that we all 
have the same common concerns in the end." 

One concern that has not been lost amidst the suds 
is the students' grade point averages. 

"As much as I love soap operas, I'd never let them 
interfere with important academic projects," says 
Massa, whose appreciation for the genre has inspired 
him to draft over 80 episodes for a proposed daytime 
serial of his own. 

"I'd love to write my own soap, to script or act in 
daytime drama," says Massa. "Soaps are the finest 
form of escapist entertainment there is, and I've cer- 
tainly done 12 years worth of preparation/homework 
for it." 

Maybe watching J.R. Ewing's corporate machina- 
tions on 'Dallas' can be an education after all.

Firefighters battle the blaze that destroyed Old South College in 1885 




The drought that parched much of the 
Midwest this summer was more se- 
vere than any since 1934. Fields were 
scorched and sparse, and farmers waited 
in unfulfilled anticipation of rain. Many 
had to obtain additional employment to 
survive the financial crisis, while others 
were forced to give up their farms entirely 
and find new ways to support themselves. 
The United States, a major internation- 
al grain supplier, produced 30 per cent less 
grain this year as a result of the drought. 
Though researchers have yet to deter- 
mine the causes of the excessive dry spells 
and heat waves that plagued other areas of 
the country, they contend that the green- 
house effect is at least partially responsible 
for the climatic changes.

The most intense hurricane ever re- 
corded whipped through the Carib- 
bean and Mexico during the third 
week of September. 

Hurricane Gilbert paralyzed Jamaica, 
the Dominican Republic, the Cayman Is- 
lands, and Haiti. Packing winds of over 
160 mph, the storm left one in four Jamai- 
cans homeless, toppled houses, and 
snapped trees as if they were toothpicks. 
Many of the islands were still trying to 
restore electrical service to many of their 
inhabitants as much as three months after 
the storm departed. 

Hurricane Gilbert gained momentum 
over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexi- 
co as it surged toward the Yucatan Penin- 
sula. The posh resorts of Cancun and Co- 
zumel were hit badly; thousands were 
evacuated to escape the storm's 23-foot 
waves which flooded coastal regions. At 
times, Gilbert dumped as much as 10 inch- 
es of rain. Gilbert lost much of its energy 
as the Yucatan took the brunt of the 
storm. By the end of its week-long reign of 
destruction, Gilbert had been reduced to 
tropical storm status and provided Texas 
with some much needed rain.

The morning of September 29, 1988 was warm and 
clear, yet the the crowd of 250,000 that had gath- 
ered to see the launch of the Space Shuttle Discov- 
ery was quiet and tense. The Challenger disaster had 
created doubt in the minds of many Americans concern- 
ing the United States' position as an international leader 
of space exploration. Although the shuttle had under- 
gone two and a half years of testing and redesigning, the 
spectators feared that tragedy might occur a second 
time. However, after a short delay due to unusual wind 
patterns, the shuttle rocketed into the sky. As it disap- 
peared from view, the launch controllers, the crowd, and 
Americans everywhere felt excitement, relief, and pride. 
The voyage's week-long series of experiments was suc- 
cessful and, on October 2, the crew of Discovery made a 
televised tribute to the men and women who manned the 
Challenger. One astronaut, David Hilmers said: "Many 
emotions well up in our hearts: joy, for America's return 
to space; gratitude, for our nation's support through 
difficult times; thanksgiving, for the safety of our crew; 
reverence, for those whose sacrifice made our journey 
possible." Discovery landed safely at Edwards Air Force 
Base in California on October 3.

Throughout the summer, fires burned over 5 million acres of land across the 
west and Alaska. 
In Yellowstone, nearly half of the park's 2.2 million acres were left scarred 
by the eight huge fires. While more than 10,000 civilian and military firefighters 
tried desperately to keep damage at Yellowstone and surrounding towns to a 
minimum, their efforts were largely hampered by a combination of the summer's 
record-breaking drought and a series of coldfronts that brought no rain and high 

Prior to a 1979 change in the park's policy, all fires, natural and manmade, were 
to be extinguished promptly. This left a 10-year stockpile of drought dried kindling 
which maintained the intense fires of the summer. 

By the end of autumn, along with the million acres burned, 45 buildings were 
destroyed and one firefighter was dead. Despite these tragedies, workers managed 
to save the park's historic Old Faithful Inn.

In November of 1987, Clive Jones and Mike Smith 
created the Names Project. They sent out a call for 
three foot by six foot panels sewn in memoriam to 
lovers and friends, fathers and mothers, brothers 
and sisters, and sons and daughters who died of AIDS. The 
8,288 panel patchwork quilt that resulted became a symbol of 
unity and love. It helped AIDS victims and their families 
combine their sorrow and devastation with the beauty and 
power of a creative community effort. Through this project, 
Jones hoped to make the societal impact of AIDS more per- 
sonal and more real to the public. He also wanted to encourage 
concern and support for AIDS victims. Jones brought the quilt 
to the October 11, 1987 Gay Rights March in Washington 
D.C. From there, it traveled to the 24 largest cities in the 
U.S.A. The Names Project returned to Washington in Octo- 
ber, 1988 to conclude its national tour.

The University Massachusetts sponsored a week of racial aware- 
ness events, beginning on October 21 and culminating with Civili- 
ty Day on October 27. 
The events were held in response to the Massachusetts Com- 
mission Against Discrimination's report that found the October 27, 1986 
Southwest riot to be racially motivated. The brawl broke out after the Boston 
Red Sox lost a World Series game to the New York Mets. The Commission 
recommended that the University annually hold events rededicating the 
campus to civility. 

This year's celebration included lectures, discussions, workshops, radio 
shows, films, and performances designed to increase awareness of racism and 
help create an environment of increased tolerance for cultural diversity. In 
addition. Big Daddy Kane performed at the Fine Arts Center on the 26th. 
On Civility Day itself, students gathered for a rally (left) on the Student 
Union steps and then joined hands, forming a human chain from Sylvan to 
Southwest (above) in an event titled "Hands Across UMass."

Three gray whales poked their enormous heads out of a 
small hole in the thickening Arctic ice in Point Bar- 
row, Alaska. The two-foot thick ice extended for five 
miles and prevented the whales from reaching the 
open sea. When the whales' plight was discovered, scientists, 
whale-hunting Eskimos, oil companies, and environmental activ- 
ists joined forces to create a passageway to the ocean. Ultimately, 
several helicopters, many support vehicles, and over 100 people 
were needed to free the whales. 

The media coverage of the battered, bloody whales created 
widespread feelings of pity and concern among the public. How- 
ever, many marine biologists felt that the money spent to save 
these three whales could have been better spent to aid the species 
as a whole.

eoul, the capital city of South Korea, was the site of the 1988 Summer 
Olympics. Despite the controversy surrounding the games, which in- 
cluded a plethora of students protests, violent riots, and a boycott by 
North Korea, the Games progressed smoothly. For the first time since 
1972, all the major medal-winning countries competed and a record of 160 nations 
attended, making the XXIV Olympiad a rousing success. 

Although the United States usually ranks second in number of medals won, this 
year East Germany moved from third place to surpass the U.S. The Soviet Union 
maintained its first place position. Canadian Ben Johnson (left) won the coveted 
men's 100-meter dash, beating American hopeful Carl Lewis (right). However, 
within days, Johnson's suspected steroid use was confirmed and he lost his gold 
medal to second place runner Lewis. Though discussions concerning steroid use 
continued for weeks to come, the 1988 Summer Olympics continued smoothly and 
ended on October 2.

People across the country gathered together on 
Nov. 22 to commemorate John F. Kennedy on 
the 25th anniversary of his death. He was assassi- 
inated on this date in 1963 by Lee Harvey Oswald. The 
f grief that shook the nation then has not been forgotten; 
1 Kennedy's death continues to be mourned today. 

According to an article in the New York Times, over 
i 400 people gathered near Elm Street at Dealey Plaza in 
1 Dallas, where Kennedy was killed. At 12:30 p.m., the 
a approximate hour of the shooting, people joined hands at 
t the side of the road and placed two bouquets in the street 
nnear the exact place where Kennedy was shot. The signs 
con the bouquets read: "We still miss you — Nov. 22," 
^and "After 25 Years, We Still Love You John." 

At noon on Nov 21 in Washington D.C., 500 former 
f Peace Corps volunteers began a 24-hour vigil in the 
f Rotunda of the Capitol. They read aloud their feelings 
[ifor the 35th president from journals they wrote during 
lithe time they were abroad. The group then held a memo- 
rial service at St. Matthew's Roman Catholic Cathedral 
at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. 

For as much as two weeks before the anniversary, 
there was a wave of television programming that includ- 
ed retrospective segments, profiles of Kennedy, investi- 
gations into conspiracy theories, and depictions of life in 
1963. The amount of coverage calls to mind the large 
part television had in 1963 in reporting the tragedy and 
its aftermath.

Dr. Ruth Westheimer, famed sexologist, spoke to a predominantly female 
audience of about 700 in the Campus Center Auditorium Nov. 8. Address- 
ing issues of sex, pregnancy and abortion, Westheimer fielded questions 
from the audience and through her frank and open answers, hoped to dispel some 
of the misconceptions surrounding sex. 

"There is an American myth that says if you masturbate you will grow hair on 
your palms, you will go blind, you will go insane . . . These are the myths that we 
have to bury here tonight," she said. 

Westheimer put the crowd at east when she relayed humorous stories from 
callers over the past years. 

Dr. Westheimer continued with more serious anecdotes. She commented on the 
level of young people's ignorance toward sex when she spoke of a young girl who 
did not realize that she could become pregnant the first time she had sex. She also 
supported the continued legality of abortion, although she said she does not 
approve of its use as a contraceptive.

At 1 1:41 a.m. on Dec. 7, the Soviet 
Republic of Armenia was struck 
by an earthquake registering 6.9 
on the Richter scale and causing 
widespread, heavy damage. 

According to an article in the Boston 
Globe, Armenia's second-largest city Lenina- 
kan, which lies on the Turkish border, was 
close to the earthquake's epicenter. Nearly 
two-thirds of the city was destroyed, leaving 
many of the 250,000 residents dead, injured 
or homeless. 

About 45 miles from Leninakan, Spitak, a 
town of 16,000 was "practically erased from 
the face of the earth," according to a televi- 
sion correspondent quoted in the Boston 
Globe. In addition, nearly half of the build- 

ings in the city Kirovakan, population 
150,000, were demolished. 

According to the newspaper Izvestia, Ar- 
menia's population had increased drastically 
during the previous three weeks as 180,000 
people fled across the border to escape ethnic 
strife between Armenians and Azerbaijanis. 

The official news agency Tass reported 
that Soviet officials sent soldiers to the area 
to supplement the rescue and search efforts 
already begun by residents. Soldiers built tent 
cities to house evacuees and attempted to 
restore electricity and water. 

Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev can- 
celled the remainder of his visit to the United 
States and postponed his trips to Britain and 
Cuba upon learning of the disaster in his 


The state-run media proyided detailed cov- 
erage of the disaster. Soviet citizens saw im- 
mediate and uncut footage of rescue efforts. 
The head official of an earthquake commis- 
sion televised a direct appeal for equipment 
needed to search for injured and dead in the 
concrete rubble. 

On Dec. 9, the Soviet government officially 
accepted the United States' offer to send 
emergency medical and rescue supplies to 
Armenia. Their acceptance marked the first 
time that the Soviet government has allowed 
the donation of widespread medical and hu- 
manitarian aid from foreign countries.

Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev arrived in New York on 
Dec. 6 for a meeting with President Ronald Reagan and 
President-elect George Bush. According to an article in 
the Boston Globe, the three leaders hoped the mini- 
summit would show that U.S. -Soviet relations had enough stability 
to survive the transition between presidents and to continue the thaw 
that began when Gorbachev took power in 1983. Relations between 
the two countries expanded through four summits and culminated 
with last year's arms control treaty reducing nuclear arsenals in 

Gorbachev called for world peace when he addressed the United 
Nations on Dec. 8. The Boston Globe quoted him as saying, "The 
use or threat of force no longer can or must be an instrument of 
foreign policy." He proposed a cease-fire in Afghanistan with both 
the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. discontinuing support to troops by Jan. 1, 
1989. He also announced his plans to unilaterally decrease conven- 
tional arms in Eastern Europe and cut 500,000 men from Soviet and 
Eastern European forces.

On a sunny, late October afternoon, 
while "Reach Out and Touch 
Somebody's Hand" echoed from 
the steeple bells in Old Chapel, an estimat- 
ed 4,000 people joined hands and formed a 
human chain across campus. 

Deemed one of the largest student 
events in recent years, "Hands Across 
UMass" was the culminating event of Ci- 
vility Week. Civility Week was organized 
to commemorate the second anniversary 
of the Southwest racial brawl that broke 
out Oct. 27, 1986 after the Boston Red 
Sox lost the World Series championship to 
the New York Mets. 

While "Hands Across UMass" was the 
most publicized and most attended event 
of Civility Week, it was only one of many 
campus events sponsored throughout the 
week. In addition, workshops and educa- 
tional programs were also sponsored cam- 
pus wide. 

The "Hands Across UMass" festivities 
kicked off with a rally on the Student 
Union steps, where students and campus 
leaders united against racism. Many par- 
ticipants spoke out against the campus 
wide and world wide effects of racism. 

Sekhulumi Ntsoaole, a student from 
South Africa, explained to the crowd that 
only recently he lived in a country where 
racism was accepted. "Now two months 
later," he said, "I am proud to stand here 
and support this fight against racism. 

After the noontime rally. Chancellor Jo- 
seph Duffey and event co-organizer Lori 
Edmonds led the crowd to the campus 
pond. Duffey and Edmonds were the first 
to join hands. Immediately the human 
chain sprouted in two directions and began 
its long, unbroken stretch across campus. 

For the next 40 minutes, the chain grew, 
stretching and wrapping its way around 
the campus, before ending up in Southwest 
and Sylvan residential areas. 

With the exception of a few children 
from Mark's Meadow Elementary School, 
who picked up the slack near Sylvan, most 
of the participants were students, profes- 
sors, faculty and staff. Many professors 
cancelled their afternoon classes, while 
many students willingly skipped afternoon 
classes to participate in the event. 

Jason Rabinowitz, co-organize of 
"Hands Across UMass" called the event a 
huge success. 

"It showed that racism is absolutely un- 
acceptable and not tolerated," he said.

Three days of racial violence in Miami 
began on Jan. 18, when a Hispanic po- 
lice officer, William Lozano, shot a 
black motorcyclist, Clement Anthony 
Lloyd, on an Overtown street. Lloyd's passenger, 
Allen Blanchard, died the following day of head 

The violence instigated by the shooting included 
sniper fire, assault, arson, rock and bottle throwing 
and looting. One additional person was killed and 
seven others, including several police officers, were 
injured. Rioters burned a total of 22 stores, causing 
nearly $1 million worth of damage. Area businesses 
were forced to shut down for a couple of days. 

The January riots marked the 4th instance of 
open racial violence since 1980, when three police 
officers accused in the death of a black man were 
acquitted, thus provoking 3 days of racial violence. 
According to an article in the Boston Globe, 
racial tension in the area had been intensified by 
the recent influx of Hispanics to the area, who, 
many blacks felt, were making the economic situa- 
tion worse by being a source of competition.

Salvador Dali, a pioneer of European surrealism, died following 
years of failing health. He was 84. 
Born May 11,1 904 in the Spanish town of Figueras, Dali grew 
to become one of the best known figures in the surrealism move- 
ment. Dali is credited with making an inventive and enduring contribution to 
European surrealism. His surrealism is easily interpreted and equally adored 
by the public. His pieces reflect a world turned inside out and make one 
believe that nonsense can make sense. 

Dali's simultaneously perplexing and imaginative works deal with such 
themes as sexual anxiety, sadden destruction of civilization and irreconcil- 
able crimes against humanity. 

In 1980, the Pompidou Center in Paris mounted a retrospective of Dali's 
work that included 168 paintings, 219 drawings, 38 objects, some 2,000 
documents and a specially built Dali environment. 

In his final years, Dali became a recluse, speaking to only a handful of 
people. He had been hospitalized for treatment of heart problems three times 
since late November and had been using a wheelchair since suffering burns 
from a 1984 fire in his home. 

As a final tribute to the great artist, the Dali Museum opened in Figueras, 

the town of his birth.

Clad in combat fatigues, 24-year-old 
Patrick West opened fire on the chil- 
dren of a Stockton, CA elementary 
school, midday on Jan. 17, killing 
five and critically injuring 15 others, before 
turning the gun on himself. 

Before the incident. West set his car ablaze 
near the school. As emergency crews battled the 
fire, he entered the area through a gap in the 
fence that surrounded the schoool. 

400 to 500 pupils from grades 1-3 were play- 
ing in the schoolyard when West showered the 
area with bullets from a Russian AK-47 assault 
rifle. West fired 60 rounds at the school's porta- 
ble classrooms and into the school yard, and 
then turned the gun on himself.

On Jan. 24, notorious killer Ted Bundy was put to death by electric chair 
at Florida State Prison. The 42-year-old law school dropout was a 
suspect in the disappearances and murders of over 30 young women in 
Colorado, Washington and Utah. 
In 1978, Bundy killed 12-year-old Kimberly Diane Leach. In 1980, Bundy was 
convicted and sentenced to death. For the past decade, he has obtained stays of 
execution by providing detectives with information concerning additional murders. 
On Jan. 17, the U.S. Supreme Court declared him competent to stand trial in 
the Leach case and sentenced him to die. On the 24th, a crowd of 300 outside the 
prison anxiously awaited official declaration of Bundy 's death.

in response to the com- 
monwealth's budget cuts, 
student activists built a 
community of small huts 
along the banks of the Campus 
Pond, and deemed it Cutback City, 
to symbolize "students out in the 
cold." The shacks were built with 
scrap lumber and sheathed in plastic. 
Student artists built an additional 
shack occupied by sculptures resem- 
bling dissatisfied students. 

Determined residents occupied 
the shantytown for the entire spring 
semester, despite student apathy, in- 
clement weather and, later in the se- 
mester, lack of support by the Stu- 
dent Government Association.

^ ^ . . the University lived up to the chal- 
lenge of free speech" were the words of 
Chancellor Joseph Duffey after the 
controversial minister, Louis Farrak- 
han, spoke for three hours to a sold out crowd at 
the Fine Arts Center Concert Hall, Feb. 2. The 
1,900 ticket holders waited for two hours in the 
February cold before passing through metal detec- 
tors and body searches by police. 

An equal number of protestors peacefully boy- 
cotted the event, and Hillel, a Jewish organization 
on campus, sponsored a candlelight vigil at Haigus 
Mall, while added security patrolled the roof and 
surrounding area of the FAC. 

Farrakhan, the 56-year-old leader of the Nation 
of Islam, had been accused of making remarks that 
were offensive to Jews, sparking many to consider 
him anti-Semitic. In his speech at the University, 
Farrakhan responded to those allegations and ex- 
plained the intentions of his earlier comments.

Satanic Verses sparks controversy: 
Khomeini orders killing of 


eginning Feb. 12, angry Moslems in Pakistan and India protested and 

demonstrated violently in response to Salman Rushdie's novel The 

Satanic Verses. As of Feb. 1 5, six people had been killed and more than 

160 had been wounded. 

On the 14th, the Iranian spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, called for the 

execution of Rushdie and the publishers of his novel and encouraged Moslems 

throughout the world to condemn him for blasphemy. 

Rushdie defended his novel as a work of fiction in a television interview before 
he went into hiding in mid-February.

On March 9, the U.S. Senate rejected President George 
Bush's nomination of John Tower, a former Texas Sena- 
tor, as defense secretary. 
The Senate's 53-47 vote came after a much-publicized 
debate, centering on an FBI report concerning his drinking habits 
and dealings with women. In addition, questions were raised con- 
cerning Tower's acceptance of defense company consulting con- 
tracts. Tower later admitted that he had been unfaithful to his wife, 
but emphasized that many others in the country have been guilty of 
the same offense. 

Tower's subsequent pledge to never touch a drop of liquor while in 
office created a backlash of controversy that led to the rejection of 
his nomination. 

Tower would have had responsibility for decisions such as de- 
termining the future of the Strategic Defense Initiative and whether 
to continue with the MX missle or shift to the mobile, single- 
warhead Migetman. 

Although this was not the only time that the Senate has rejected a 
presidential cabinet recommendation, it was the first time it hap- 
pened within the first 90 days of a presidency. 

With the exceptions of three Democrats, one of whom was former 
vice-presidential candidate Lloyd Bentsen, who supported Tower 
and one Republican who opposed him, the voie was split according 
to party: Democrats against. Republicans in support of Tower.

The 987-foot supertanker Exxon Valdez ran 
aground on Bligh Reef in Valdez, Alaska, 
rupturing 10 of its 13 tanks and spewing 11 
million gallons of crude oil gushing into the 
waters of Prince William Sound, Mar. 24. 

By the 29th, despite efforts of emergency cleanup 
crews, the massive oil slick had spread over 70 miles. 
According to an article in the Boston Globe, the methods 
of fighting the spill, including mechanical skimmers and 
chemical dispersants that dissolve oil, were found to be 
inefficient and environmentally dangerous in a disaster 
of this size. 

At the time of the grounding, the captain of the Val- 
dez, Joseph Hazelwood, had left third-mate Gregory 
Cousins in command on the bridge. Cousins was not 
qualified to run the ship. Hazelwood was legally drunk at 
the time.

AT 77 

Lucille Ball, the glamorous clown whose flaming curls, elastic grin and run-ins 
with domestic disaster endeared her to three generations of television viewers 
worldwide, died suddenly of a ruptured aorta on April 26. She was 77. 
The innovative queen of television comedy considered by many the female 
counterpart to slapstick maestro Charlie Chaplin, Ms. Ball's unexpected death at 
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles came just 8 days after successfully under- 
going open-heart surgery. 

As news of the beloved redhead's passing sent Shockwaves through both the entertain- 
ment industry and global community, the media deluged itself with tributes to the stage, 
screen and television performer whose first named defined laughter for over 40 years. 
"We've lost one of the greatest stars of Hollywood and of the world," said actor Fred 
MacMurray, a longtime friend and colleague of Ball's. "There will never be another 

Ms. Ball (whose origmal series "I Love Lucy" revolutionized television production of 
the 1950's and is still seen in more than 80 countries) was as shrewd a businesswoman as 
she was generous as a performer, becoming Hollywood's first female studio head (of 
Desilu Productions) in 1960 and producing such golden age TV classics as "The 
Untouchables," "Star Trek," and "The Dick Van Dyke Show."

Social activist and Worcester, Mass. native Abbie Hoff- 
man died of a drug overdose on April 12 in his New 
Hope, PA apartment. 
Coroners determined that Hoffman's death was 
caused by a combination of as many as 50 phenobarbitol tablets and 
alcohol. The 52-year-old Hoffman had been prescribed barbiturates 
to alleviate pain caused by a recent automobile accident. According 
to his brother Jack, "He [Hoffman] was asleep before he went into a 
comatose stage. He felt no pain." 

Hoffman will long be remembered as the social activist whose 
commitment to pertinent issues never waned. At UMass, Hoffman 
was immortalized through his involvement in an anti-CIA student 
recruitment protest in November 1986. With Amy Carter and a 
large group of students, Hoffman led a takeover of Munson Hall. 
As a final tribute, folk singer Pete Seeger led a peace march from 
Hoffman's boyhood Worcester home to Temple Emanuel, where his 
memorial service was held.

On April 19, a huge gun turret aboard the 
battleship USS Iowa became a chamber of 
death when an explosion killed 47 of the 58 
men inside. The sailors stationed near the 16- 
inch guns were killed by the blast itself; those working at 
the lower levels of the turret asphyxiated instantaneously 
when the oxygen in those rooms was sucked out by the 
flames above. Eleven men at the bottom of the turret 
were able to run to safety when they saw the intense flash 
of the blast. The subsequent fire took two hours to con- 

The explosion, which occurred during routine training 
exercises 300 miles from Puerto Rico, was contained by 
the 17-inch thick plate steel walls of the turret, thus 
preventing serious injuries to additional members of the 
1,600-man crew, as well as further damage to the ship.

600,000 RALLY TO KEEP 

Organized chiefly by the National Organization of Women, the March 
for Women's Equality/Women's Lives was the largest abortion rights 
demonstration in American history. 600,000 people, many clad in the 
traditional white of the women's suffrage campaign of the late 1800's, 
gathered in Washington D.C. April 9 to show their support of the pro-choice 
movement. The march was a response to the possibility that the Supreme Court's 
decision to review a Missouri restrictive abortion law could result in the overturn- 
ing of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion. 

Protesters travelled from all over the U.S. to attend the march. Nearly 1,200 
students from the Five-College area attended the march.

Former Marine Lt. Col. Oliver L. North, 
the central figure in the highly publi- 
cized Iran-contra affair, was found 
guilty of three felony charges and ac- 
quitted of nine others. 

All of the 12 charges brought against North 
carried 5-year prison terms and fines of up to 
$250,000. The charges ranged from obstruction of 
Congress, destroying or falsifying government doc- 
uments, conspiracy to defraud the Treasury and 
the IRS, to the conversion of travelers' checks for 
personal use. 

The prosecution painted the former White 
House aide as a man who "placed himself above 
the law," while North's defense lawyer described 
him as a patriot who was only following orders and 
is now being "abandoned by his government." 

On every criminal charge in which North assert- 
ed that he was just following orders, the jury found 
him not guilty.

Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev 
arrived in Beijing, China on May 
15 to the sight of 1,000 student 
protestors in Tiananmen Square 
who planned to starve themselves until the 
Chinese government promised immediate 
democratic change. 15,000 additional stu- 

dents also camped out on the central square 
and tens of thousands rallied in support of the 
hunger strikers. Students chanted and dis- 
played banners, one of which read "Democ- 
racy, Our Common Goal" (Below). Their 
demonstration forced the government to 
change details of the Gorbachev visit and 

successfully embarrassed Chinese officials. 
On May 20, after weeks of student demon- 
strations, martial law was implemented in 
Beijing for the first time since Communist 
China was founded in 1949.

When Jonathan Leavitt and five other students 
discovered last year that the University was 
receiving over $11 million in research grants 
from the U.S. Department of Defense, they 
decided they should make their findings public. 

After staging a mock wedding between the University 
and the DOD on Oct. 5, the students released their 
information to the Valley Advocate and the Daily 
Hampshire Gazette. Little did they know that doing so 
would lead to nearly a month of protests in April and 
early May by hundreds of students, climaxing in the 
occupation of three buildings on campus and the arrests 
of close to 100 students. 

Seven protesters were arrested for trespassing during 
the first demonstration, an occupation of a laboratory in 
Marcus Hall, April 19. Soon after this demonstration 
came a two-day occupation of a lounge in Memorial Hall 
by about 40 students. That sit-in resulted in the arrests of 
62 students. 

Of the protests, Joe Rubin, one of the students arrest- 
ed after the occupation of Memorial Hall, said, 
"We're not just talking about the military, we're talking 
about the priorities of the University."

Wang has been able to 
master a number of artis- 
tic techniques, such as 
calligraphy and wood- 
block printing. Often 
combining literature in 
his art, Wang's works are 
full of soft-spoken 
sayings that have been 
slightly altered. Wang's 
ability to present com- 
plex ideas in simple, al- 
most childlike prints, 
makes his work compel- 
ling and enjoyable.

The spectacularly 
surrealistic paintings 
of Connie Fox ("Ferry 
Boat" is pictured at 
right) were on display 
at Herter Gallery 
from March 1-19. Al- 
though her work has 
often been labeled Ab- 
stract Expressionist, 
Ms. Fox has rejected 
many of the faddish 
movements of the past 
quarter century in fa- 
vor of her own unique 
visual vocabulary of 
barber poles, whirling 
dervish circles, nono- 
lithic rocks, pyramids 
and coils; images often 
contained in her copi- 
ously painted surfaces.

Civility Mural 

This mural honors last year's and future 

civility events. It was conceived by student 

Jon Satz. A competition among students in 

selected departments vvas juried by faculty, 

staff and students. The design of graduate 

art student Jonathon Kohrman was selected. 

This project was made possible by 

Provost Richard D. O'Brien, the Arts Council, 

the Art Department, GASA, and the 

Physical Plant Department. 

For further information, contact the 
Arts Council, 125 Herter Hall.

^k f a picture is worth a thousand words, 

ft then maybe Jonathan Kohrman has cre- 
/ ated a novel with his Civility Day mural 
at the University of Massachusetts. 

"Art is about truth," said the 30-year-old grad- 
uate art student while gazing at his handiwork 
outside the entrance to the Murray D. Lincoln 
Campus Center. "And here I'm holding a mirror 
up to what really goes on at UMass to give a 
reason why people should respect each other." 

The mural has been designed in commemora- 
tion of the University's October 1988 Civility 
Week, six days of workshops and guest speakers 
that were organized to confront problems of rac- 
ism on campus. 

The project, which cost $2,500, is being paid 
for by a grant from University Provost Richard D. 
O'Brien, the Arts Council, the Art Department, 
and the Graduate Arts Program, according to 
Marjorie Tuttle, program director of the Arts 

Mounted on a long sheet of plywood, the mural 
is a sweeping mosaic of exchanges between stu- 
dents both socially and in the classroom. 

"Basically, I decided to portray students 
at work because that's our goal here," said 
Kohrman. "Students are some of the hard- 
est workers I know, and a lot of times that 
fact is overlooked. I also wanted to draw 
something the majority of students could 
relate to." 

Kohrman said he got the idea after wit- 
nessing the racial tensions on campus and 
after reading about similar problems on 
campuses across the country. 

"I'm trying to show that racism exists 
here as well as in the society at large, and 
it's something that needs to be grappled 
with on a regular basis." 

In his mural, Kohrman has employed 
serene hues of blue, brown and gray to 
illustrate scenes at the University. In one 
instance, a student is pictured in a labora- 
tory mixing chemicals, while in another 
vignette a group of University administra- 
tors is gathered around a table reading the 
first two sentences of the Hurst report, 
issued in 1987 by Judge Frederick Hurst 
on the investigation into the 1986 racial 
incident near the Southwest dormitories. 
The sentences, inscribed into the mural, 
read: "The events in the Southwest resi- 
dential area were predictable, preventable 
and primarily racially motivated. The ad- 
ministration's historic denial of racial 
problems caused the failure to predict and

prevent the incident." 

"I included those words," said 
Kohrman, "because they are a per- 
fect, eloquent distillation of the 

According to Tuttle, Kohrman's 
design offers a lesson for dealing 
with Civility issues on campus. 

"It's very immediately seen as 
having a civility message," she said. 
"The picture itself represents as 
many constituencies as possible. It 
jumps right out at you." 

She added that students returning 

"I don't have any great il- 
lusions that it will change 
anybody's mind." 

to the campus in the fall should find 
a positive message in the painting. 

"I don't think the mural will be 
vandalized because, for the most 
part, people are empathetic to civili- 
ty issues," she said. "And, secondly, 
it is a student executed project, so it 
is very much the students' mural." 

The idea of a mural as an exten- 

sion of Civility Week was presented 
last winter to the Arts Council by 
Jon Satt, an environmental design 
student at the University. The Arts 
Council decided to open the design 
to students in the art, landscape ar- 
chitecture and design, and Afro- 
American studies departments. Sub- 
missions were reviewed and judged 
by an eight-member committee of 
students and faculty who had dealt 
with civility issues before. 

Korhman's drawing was selected 
out of nine others as best represent- 
ing the theme of Civility Week. 

Along with his design, Kohrman, a 
Florence resident, included a written 
proposal explaining why he wanted 
to complete the mural. In it he wrote: 
"It is my intention to make a mural 
that reflects the goals of the Univer- 
sity community to live and work to- 
gether with cooperation, enthusiasm 
and joy." 

Still, Kohrman is realistic when he 
considers how much of an impact his 
drawing will have on bringing about 
changes at UMass. 

"I don't have any great illusions 
that it will change anybody's mind. I 
just made the best picture I could." 


The Ohio Ballet (top) performed classi- 
cal ballet works at the FAC on Feb. 27. 
The New York Times praised the twenty- 
two member dance company as "a credit 
to the entire American dance communi- 
ty." The program included "Concerto 
Barocco" with music by Bach and choreo- 
graphed by George Balanchine; "Patterns 
of Change" music by Philip Glass and 
choreographed by Laura Dean; and two 
works choreographed by the company's 
artistic director Heinz Poll, "Pavane" 
with music by Faure and "Games" with 
music by Mozart. 

Garbed in authentic folk dress, the 
world famous Polish folk dance troupe, 
Mazowsze (bottom), performed native 
dances and songs of Poland at the FAC on 
Apr. 6. Performing dance after dance 
without a pause, the 100 dancers and sing- 
ers made over 1,000 costume changes. 
Mazowsze was founded in 1948 by Ta- 
deusz Sygietynski, a composer and re- 
searcher of Polish folklore, and his wife, 
Mira Ziminska, at one time Poland's lead- 
ing actress who had turned to costume and 
stage design.

The New York-based Nina Wiener 
Dance Company (top) made a two-day 
stop at the FAC, performing Apr. 23 
and 24. The six-member company, that 
is ascending as one of today's cutting- 
edge modern dance ensembles, per- 
formed Nina Wiener's Internal Travel- 
ogue. The performance on the 23rd 
took the audience "behind the scenes" 
for an explanation of how the major 
collaboration evolved. The piece is 
comprised of two segments: Transat- 
lantic Light and Fierce Attachments 
and involves choreography by Nina 
Wiener and work by composers Sergio 
Cervetti and Lucia Hwong, and sculp- 
tor James Ford. 

The dance program on Oct. 19 at the 
FAC included a mixed repertoire of 
classical ballet by The Royal Ballet of 
Flanders (bottom). Under the artistic 
direction of Robert Denvers, Belgium's 
preeminent ballet company performed 
Variations, choreographed by Violette 
Verdy with music by Brahms; Go! Said 
Max, choreographed by Lynne Taylor 
Corbett, music by R. Maczynski; Sym- 
phony in D, choreographed by Jiri Ky- 
lian, music by Haydn; and the third act 
of Don Quixote, choreographed by Ru- 
dolf Nureyev with music by Ludwig

Composed of selected students from 
the dance major at the University and 
from the surrounding Five College 
Dance Programs, the University Danc- 
ers are an energetic company whose 
performances have a two-fold purpose: 
to educate audiences of all ages and 
backgrounds in the multi-faceted art of 
dance, and also to provide dance stu- 
dents with performing experience. 

This year, the University Dancers 
performed under the artistic direction 
of Prof. Richard Jones at Bowker Au- 
ditorium, Dec. 8-10. 

In one of the performances, Kelly 
Pike, Ronald Showell and Margaret 
Shepardson (right) "strut their stuff 
to the music of the Police in Gary Lus- 
sier's Motive for Murder. 

Richard Jones' Visions was based on 
an original composition by Salvatore 
Macchia, professor of the contrabass 
at the University. Ronald Showell 
(bottom) opened the production with 
superb dancing. Other dancers fol- 
lowed with various dramatic routines. 
Two of them were John Pendergast 
and Elaine Winslow (center opposite 
page), who followed with assurance. 

Jean Michel Jarre's Equinox provid- 
ed the setting for faculty choreogra- 
pher Andrea Watkin's stunning mod- 
ern work Ricochet. The three dancers 
Kelly Pike, Amy Matton and Heidi 
Speranis (top opposite page) leap with 
a flick of the arm at hip level. 

Common gestures and simple props 
created a dramatic and jubilant atmo- 
sphere for Doug Varone's Aria and 
Bench Quartet. Ann Marie Parten- 
heimer (bottom opposite page) and 
dancers Heidi Sperouns, Leslie Miller 
and Patti Anne Kenny rest on a bench 
facing the audience.

The Colorado Quartet, one of 
the most sought after ensembles 
today, performed at Bowker 
Auditorium on March 1. The 
quartet made history in 1983 by 
winning two of chamber music's 
most coveted prizes within 10 
days. Shown clockwise at top 
left are: violist Francesca Mar- 
tin; violinist Deborah Redding; 
cellist Diane Chaplin; and vio- 
linist Julie Rosenfeld. 

Kodo (bottom), the Japanese 
performing company, returned 
to the FAC on Mar. 3. The 
company draws from tradition- 
al Japanese music and perfor- 
mance, and centers on the 
"taiko" (traditional Japanese 
drum). The ensemble also em- 
ploys a variety of other instru- 
ments, dance, and mime creat- 
ing a visual and aural 
presentation unlike any other. 
"Kodo" means both "heart- 
beat" and "children of the 
drum." Not only does it express 
the sound of a mother's heart- 
beat heard and felt from within 
the womb, but also the desire to 
play the drums with the heart of 
a child.

"The social 
experience we 
offer our 
students is as 
educational as 
any course 



t this time I am pleased 
to join your family and 
friends in offering con- 
gratulations to the class 
of 1989. Each of you 
has a success story to 
tell about your educa- 
tion. While the many 
degrees which are 
granted this year repre- 
sent a wide variety of 
talents andHabor, each 
one is an ihdividual 
achievement. While 
many people have helped to make your 
education successful, each one of yoU\ 
deserves credit for drawing resources 
together, for giving meaning to your 
work, and for bringing your education 
to a successful completion. 

The value of a degree from the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts needs little ex- 
plaining. You all know that the educa- 
tional resources here — the faculty, the 
libraries, the laboratories — are excel- 
lent. Course offerings are numerous, di- 
verse and inviting. What is unique 

about the educational environment of 
this campus, I believe, is the impressive 
variety and size of our community. Our 
campus is an extraordinary mosaic of 
individual talents, style and values. Be- 
cause of this variety, the social experi- 
ence we offer our students is as educa- 
tional as any course curriculum is ever 
likely to be. 

Each of you has succeeded. And your 
success here prefigures your success in 
the world, since we are a microcosm of 
the world you are about to enter. I hope 
that the personal lessons you have 
learned here — about hard work and 
commitment, cooperation and under- 
standing — will serve you well. While 
the skills and knowledge you have ac- 
quired will certainly be useful to you, 
the personal growth and the social un- 
derstanding you have acquired may in 
the end be more valuable. 

The world you will confront in 1989 
presents a great many challenges. It is 
my hope that you will bring to this 
world the best values an educated per- 
son can have; an informed intelligence, 
and a humaneness which is founded on 

My hope is that your success at the 
University of Massachusetts is only the 
first in a long series of successes.

Iur institution is 
in the grip of a 
system of cen- 
tralized control 
which takes all 
^H the zest as well 
^K as most of the 
^K promise out of 
B the task of 
Hr leadership. If 
imposed bu- 
methods, con- 
stant annoyance from a multitude of 
petty requirements, the minimizing of 
effective responsibility for both expen- 
ditures and policies, or even personal 
humiliation, were a necessary price ex- 
acted of the executives of the (Universi- 
ty) in order to serve fundamental (Uni- 
versity) interests or those of the 
Commonwealth, one should not com- 
plain. But these restrictions are not nec- 
essary to the effective management of 
the college (and) they do not result in 
essential economy." 

Those words were written by Kenyon 
Butterfield, President of Massachusetts 
Agricultural College from 1906 to 
1924. They remind us that the Universi- 
ty's progress has not always been one of 
smooth, steady development. There 
have been times of significant fiscal re- 
straint and bitter governance debate. 
And there have even been occasions 
when the institution lost ground which 
had to be recouped later. 

Even so, we can find satisfaction in 
the knowledge that the University has 
weathered these storms, has emerged as 
one of the premier universities in the 
country, and will continue to serve the 
Commonwealth, the nation and the 
world by providing educational oppor- 

tunities and by creating and disseminat- 
ing new knowledge. 

As you make the transition from 
UMass students to UMass alumni, you 
can be proud of the institution from 
which you graduate. In the years ahead, 
we will look increasingly to you for the 
help and support in maintaining a tradi- 
tion of excellence. 

Congratulations and best wishes.

"An internship is an initiation into the 
real world. Students gain and improve 
professional and resume skills." 

-Ellen Wolf 


by Susan Hope 

or "the course of your life," try 
an internship. 

Now in its 17th year, the In- 
ternship Program has been the 
answer for harried students, 
tired of long registration lines 
and over-subscribed courses, 
or for those just ready for a taste of the 
"real world" away from UMass. 

Founded in 1972, the Internship Pro- 
gram gives students the unique oppor- 
tunity of working in a professional set- 
ting for academic credit, with the 
results being practical experience and 
valuable lifetime and marketable skills. 
UMass interns have worked in a wide 
array of agencies, including: NBC-TV, 
the Geographical Research Informa- 
tion Data Systems in Geneva, MTV, 
and Late Night With David Letterman. 
Beth Scheiner, a senior communica- 
tion major interned at the USA Net- 
work in New York City this fall. Work- 
ing directly with the producers, 
Scheiner worked on four originally pro- 
duced children's television shows that 
included: Commander USA-Groovie 
Movies, Calliope, and Kid's Club. She 
also produced three of her own one- 
minute aired shows. 

"I learned more in one semester than 
in a lifetime," Scheiner said. "I actually 
learned how to produce a television 

Scheiner believes that every 
undergraduate student should 
do an internship. However, ac- 
cording to Program Director 
Ellen Wolf, only one to two 
percent of each class actually 
participates in the program, or 
500-600 students each year. 

These students are mainly juniors and 
seniors, and are for the most part com- 
munication, journalism, political sci- 
ence and sociology majors. In the sum- 
mer of 1988, there were 192 interns, 
143 in the fall and 150 this spring. 

"An internship is an initiation into 
the real world," Wolf says. "Through 
the program, students gain many pro- 
fessional skills that influence future 
courses and improve resume and inter- 
viewing skills." 

According to Wolf, decision making 
skills are also improved. "All the im- 
portant academic and personal deci- 
sions are made by the students. They 
design their own individual programs." 

Janina Braun, a senior political sci- 
ence major, interned at the Office of 
the Corporate Council in Washington, 
D.C., in the interfamily division. Braun 
worked with attorneys and helped ad- 
vise persons involved in family violence, 
be it a battered woman or an abused 
child. The division represented the gov- 
ernment's best interest in child abuse 
cases, which 99% of the time, was in the 
best interest of the child. 

"Most of the work I did was to pre- 
pare cases, from interviewing witnesses 
to obtaining subpoenas. I did every- 
thing but go into court," said Braun. 
"The internship was one of the best 
things I've done. I made a lot of connec- 
tions and saw many avenues of the law 
that I can study in Law School. 

According to Wolf, most students 
consider their internships highly suc- 
cessful. For some, career choices are 
strengthened while others may change 
their career goals into something more 
personally appealing.

Students who are unsure of 
where there major may lead 
them need look no further 
than the University Place- 
ment Office. There, the Co- 
operative Education Program 
can help students apply 
knowledge learned in the 
classroom to "real world" experiences. 
The Co-op Program provides stu- 
dents with the opportunity to actually 
hold a job in a field directly related to 
their major. It is the only on-campus 
program available for students to get 
professional paid experience. 

Amy Voytovich, a senior marketing 
major, took advantage of the program 
for six months. Voytovich was a mar- 
keting assistant for Honeywell Bull in 
Billerica, MA. Her duties included 
writing marketing literature and assist- 
ing in the making of a Honeywell Bull 

"I gained extensive knowledge about 
computers that will hopefully help me 
get a job in high-tech sales," said 

"It was worthwhile to take six 
months off from school to gain valuable 
experience," she said. "Not only did I 
gain in-depth knowledge of how a high- 

tech company works, I also learned how 
to live in the "real world." I had my 
own apartment and worked a 40-hour 

To participate in the Co-op Program, 
students need to complete a program 
application and provide the Co-op of- 
fice with a recent transcript. The Co-op 
program is geared to sophomores, ju- 
niors, and first semester seniors with a 
declared major, and a grade point aver- 
age of at least 2.0. Department require- 
ments may differ however. Once ac- 
cepted into the program, students must 
decide whether to take a summer or a 
six-month Co-op, since both opportuni- 
ties are offered. 

Employers participate in Coopera- 
tive Education to help identify talented 
college students early. The extensive list 
of employers, from wildlife biology, 
management or journalism, train stu- 
dents in the methods of the company. 
They observe the performance of their 
student employees under actual work 
conditions and estimate their 
potential as future employees. 

As Voytovich concluded en- 
thusiastically: "Do it! You 
could not ask for a better

Some students practically 
bend over backwards to do 
well at their universities. 
Judy Buck walks backwards 
for hers. 
"This is not really as diffi- 
cult as it looks," laughs 
Buck, her back confidently 
set against the advancing 
terrain as she maneuvers a 
small group of parents and 
aspiring students through 
the colorful maze that is 

One of only 14 Campus Center tour 
guides who put UMass' future alumni 
through their formative paces, the 19 year- 
old Lancaster native and sophomore soci- 
ology major is proud of her role as an 
unsung PR agent for the University. 

"Actually, I try to look at my work as if 
I'm doing a service for the parents rather 
than acting as just a salesperson for the 
school," she says. "Yet, you definitely do 
have to project a visible enthusiasm for the 
school and emphasize the unique aspects 
of student life here." 
Senior economics major and fellow tour 

guide Ed Davey, 21, agrees, stressing: 
"The UMass campus is its own best PR 
tool ... it really sells itself. At first glance, 
most people usually say 'Wow, this place is 
great' . . . The sheer size and diversity of 
UMass just blows most other schools 

Likening the tour guides' twice-daily in- 
formation presentations to "the post office 
. . . rain, sleet or snow, we have to do . . . 
We're never canceled," Davey is quick to 
point out that although the tour system is 
meant to present the best possible image of 
UMass as a learning institution, the tour 
guides can still tackle probing questions 
about their campus as easily as they might 
fend off inclement weather. 

"Obviously, we're not going to go out 
and be negative," says Davey. "I'd never 
say 'Whitmore stinks' or 'I never get my 
classes' . . . You just have to put some of 
the campus' more publicized problems and 
budget cut controversies into perspective 
so the new student can make a fair judg- 

Buck concurs, explaining the more re- 
cent wave of student protests to inquiring 
parents with the diplomatic observation: 
"Students are very active here on campus 
and they stand up for what they believe." 

Yet, Davey feels the most fulfilling part 
of his tour duties to be "the valuable inter- 
personal skills the daily presentations give 
you . . . you learn so much about communi- 
cation that you could never learn from a 
book . . . Plus, I can walk anywhere on 
campus or even be buying jeans at a Gap 
store and someone will always know me 
(from my work as a tour guide)." 

Buck is more succinct about what en- 
dears her to the job. "What makes me feel 
really good is when a student will come up 
after a tour and tell me 'Thanks, I really 
want to go here now.' That's really the 
greatest compliment of all."

n late August, while most stu- 
dents are still basking in what is 
left of the summer sunshine, 360 
dedicated student leaders return 
to campus to prepare for one of 
the toughest, but also one of the 
most rewarding jobs on campus. 
Resident Assistants (RAs) are 
the part-time, live-in residence 
hall counselors whose duties 
range from crisis intervention to 
disciplinary regulations. 
Before the dorms open for the 
semester, all RAs (both new and veter- 
an) must partake in an intense 10-day 
training program. During this session, 
RAs learn and practice crisis interven- 
tion, stress management, interpersonal 
communication and other necessary 
skills. Staff development is also empha- 
sized, as are university and cluster poli- 
cies. At the same time, dorms and clus- 
ter offices are prepared for opening 

In addition, first-year RAs are re- 
quired to take two 3-credit, semester 
long classes, (RA I and RA II). RA I 
deals with crisis intervention, support 
networks and community development 
tactics. RA II is targeted mainly at so- 
cial issues, such as: racism, homopho- 
bia, sexism and anti-sematism. 

According to Larry Moneta, Direc- 
tor of Housing Services, UMass is 
home to one of the best residential edu- 
cation programs in the country. 

"Our RAs are probably the best so- 
cially educated around," says Moneta. 

"In fact, many other schools ask us for 
social issues education information, and 
to present workshops." 

Mary Beckwith, Resident Director of 
Webster/ Dickinson agrees. "I think so- 
cial issues training is absolutely critical. 
RAs need to be taught how to respond 
effectively and sensitively to all popula- 
tions, we teach this to our RAs." 

Even though some may see RAs as 
only rule enforcers, this is simply not 
the case. RAs act as peer counselors, 
social issues educators and liaisons in 
roommate conflicts. They are also re- 
sponsible for developing a comfortable 
community environment on their floors, 
and assisting students with physical and 
emotional difficulties. 

An RA's duty does not end on his or 
her floor. In addition to floor responsi- 
bilities, RAs must also work assigned 
shifts in the cluster office, attend week- 
ly staff meetings, implement and pre- 
sent cultural and social workshops and 
enforce university policies. 

With the many responsibilities as- 
signed to RAs, most find the position 
challenging. But they also find it re- 
warding. Peter Galipeau, an RA for 
two years, calls his position one of the 
best things he has done at UMass. 

"It has been my best education be- 
cause it has taught me more about col- 
lege and life than any other course in 
the sense that I've learned how to deal 
with people and not just books and aca- 
demics," said Galipeau.

Roy Eddington dropped out of high 
school, turned to a life of drug- 
related crime, and ended up in 
This year, with the help of the 
Hampden County Release Cen- 
ter, self-motivation, and a special 
program at the University of Massachu- 
setts, Roy has become the first member of 
his family to receive a college degree. 

Eddington participated in the Prison 
Education Program at UMass. The pro- 
gram, which is seven years old, is part of 
the Division of Continuing Education. 
UMass amd Mount Wachusett Communi- 
ty College are the only two institutions in 
western Massachusetts that sponsor the 

Hampden County Release Center, lo- 
cated in Springfield, is a pre-release, mini- 
mum security prison. As part of pre-re- 
lease status, the prisoners must choose one 
of two options: go to work or go to school. 
Eddington, unlike most of the other pris- 
oners, chose school. 

"Most of the prisoners go to work and 
may make $10,000 a year. I may be losing 
years and money now, but I'll make up for 
it later when I get a job that requires a 
college degree," Eddington explained. 

While there have been a few other pris- 
oners receiving degrees through the pro- 
gram, Eddington is the only one to actual- 
ly attend classes at UMass and be 
graduated from the school. Indeed, he was 
the only Hampden resident attending 
school away from the prison. Four other 
prisoners also received degrees this year, 
but have done so without leaving the 

Eddington grew up in the north 
end of Springfield and was only one 
week into high school when drugs 
lured him onto the streets. What 
started as casual pot smoking gradu- 
ated to heroin addiction, a habit that 
forced Eddington to adopt a life of 
crime to support. 

"I just started to hang out," Ed- 
dington says. "I was living a life of 
drugs and crime. I was confused, had 
no self-esteem, and was in and out of 
jail several times." 

In May 1983, Eddington's drug 
addiction abruptly stopped when he 
was arrested and convicted after a 
series of drug-related crimes. Ed- 
dington would spend the next six 
years in some of the toughest prisons 
and correction centers around the state, 
Walpole and Concord among them. He 
subsequently ended up at Hampden while 
awaiting parole sometime during 1989. 

Through counseling and rehabilitation, 
Eddington has been drug-free for the past 
six years. He was even a drug counselor at 
the Spectrum House (a treatment center) 
in Westboro, Massachusetts. But kicking 
the addiction, was by no means easy for 

"I was sick, really sick," he says. "I 
could barely walk, had terrible night- 
mares, and had no motivation. But, I did 
some searching, came to terms with my- 
self, and made a decision to get my life 
together. It has been an up and down 
struggle, until I finally saw some light at 
the end of the Tunnel." 

UMass was that light. Arriving on cam- 
pus in September 1988, Eddington contin- 
ued the course of study needed for a bach- 
elor's degree in the general studies that he 
began in jail. He has taken classes in polit- 
ical science, legal studies and sociology, 
and has completed an independent study 
that documents his personal background 
and experiences. In April, he was inducted 
into Alpha Sigma Lambda, a national 
honor society, that requires a 3.2 grade 
point average. 

While at UMass, Eddington has worked 
with the prison education program and has 
given a number of drug-related speeches 
on campus and at local high schools. In- 
deed, one of his most memorable experi- 
ences was addressing a sociology class 
called "Drugs and Society." 

"I'm truthful with students. I try to ex- 
plain my habit to them, and also try to 

prove to them that peer pressure to use 
drugs for fun and games leads to serious 
and continual abuse," explains Eddington. 
"I have a responsibility to tell it like it is. I 
see things getting worse and the age of 
drug abusers going down. I'm qualified to 
address students. After all, I hold a double 
Ph.D. in street knowledge and as an ex- 
heroin addict." 

Besides drug addiction and jail, Edding- 
ton has faced other obstacles in his pursuit 
of education. 

"Prison is a negative envirnonmetnt. 
staying positive and motivated has been 
difficult," says Eddington. "There are also 
many distractions at Hampden. People 
want to talk to me when I'm studying, and 
it is hard to concentrate. I deserve com- 
mendation for finishing school, consider- 
ing all the pressures and distractions I 
have had to face." 

Eddington attended UMass as a full- 
time student, carrying a full course-credit 
load of hours each semester. While at the 
University, he has been "overwhelmingly" 
received by fellow students and faculty 

"For awhile, not too many people knew 
who I was. I told my professors right away 
and they were all very supportive as well as 
the staff at Continuing Ed. My classmates, 
too, gave me so many words of encourage- 
ment that I have felt no negative reactions 
or feedback at all." 

Upon release from Hampden, Edding- 
ton plans to enroll in UMass graduate 
school as a full-time student. His goal is to 
become a substance abuse and guidance 
counselor for drug and alcohol addicts. 

"I'm sure I'll do well in this field," he 
says. "Afterall, I have the best of three 
worlds in my background. I've been a clin- 
ical counselor for drug abusers at the 
Spectrum House, I have four years of col- 
lege education, and, most importantly, I 
have street knowledge. I've been there . . . 
I know what it's all about." 

Of his incredible personal odyssey, Ed- 
dington reflects: "My college education 
has been invaluable. While I'm not togeth- 
er 100 percent, I've paid my time and 
overcame the odds and now have a better 
chance to make it. I feel good about myself 
and I have learned to give myself credit. I 
have something to offer to society, and I'm 
going to stay straight and offer it."

THE BIG '<E": 


by Kathleen McKenna 

I ike most educational 
departments, the Col- 
lege of Engineering 
concentrates on its 
students' needs and is 
an extremely student- 
involved college. Engi- 
neering courses are highly 
structured and difficult, 
and, because of tremendous 
demands, it usually takes 
engineering students more 
than four years to complete 
the program. 

A freshman beginning the 
engineering program enters 
a challenging academic are- 
na. Besides adjusting to that 
roller-coaster transition be- 
tween high school and col- 
lege learning environments, 
the freshman engineer must 
brace him/herself against 
an onslaught of rigorous but 
required courses including 
calculus, physics, Engineer- 
ing 103-104, and the dread- 
ed Chemistry 111. 

Upon transcending their 

first academic year, sopho- 
more engineers are required 
to choose their concentra- 
tion of study from five 
unique areas: chemical engi- 
neering, civil engineering, 
electrical and computer en- 
gineering, industrial engi-

Two score and nineteen years 
ago, my feet set forth on this 
campus a first visit, conceived 
by the transfer of an older (by 
11 years) brother and dedi- 
cated to the proposition that 
we would be created equal in 
educational achievement. 
Brother Joe had trans- 
ferred into his sophomore 
year at Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College from a 
chemical engineering curric- 
ulum at Northeastern University in 

My own first small step onto campus is 
memorable to this day, and all the campus 
people - faculty and administrators alike - 
provide the stuff of reflection, so many 
years later. 

Aggie Coeds Smoked 
One of the earliest educations offered 
me by the Aggies was that women smoked. 
I'd never see one do that in public, until a 
stroll on North Pleasant Street in 1932. It 
was near the old QTV house and what was 
then the Davenport Inn (opposite Triangle 
Street). We were on a collision course with 
a coed uniformed in a dickie, sweater. 

pleated skirt, bobby sox and saddle shoes 
(I was observant even then - sure qualifi- 
cation for the career in journalism I was to 
pursue). She was puffing away on a Lucky 
Strike, between worldly words I couldn't 
hear addressed to a frat man calmly pol- 
ishing his spectacles on a white shirttail 
pulled out of a baggy tweed suit pants. I 
remember the scene well, even to the odor 
of the "Toasted" tobacco. 

They waved casually to us, as we passed, 
accompanied as we were by Brother Joe, 
who was a BMOC at that time. As editor 
in-chief of the weekly Collegian, he had 
made his mark by banishing sports from 
the front pages. He also wrote scholarly 
editorials (some, philosophical) that re- 
flected the influence of Dr. Ray Ethan 
Torrey, a botanist-philosopher who would 
gain international acclaim in both fields. 
A confirmed bachelor. Dr. Torrey had 
gained an undeserved reputation as a 
"woman-hater." Brother Joe himself never 
marched down the aisle until some 25 
years later. 

I was to discover "Doc" Torrey's repu- 
tation with respect to coeds, some years 
later, when I myself matriculated as a 
sophomore transfer student at what had 
become Massachusetts State College 
(MSC), in 1940. 

Naturally, I was enrolled in Doc's Bot- 
any I course. It was there that I discov- 
ered, to my delight and dismay, the re- 
wards of promptness. Hapless students, 
slinking tardily into their assigned seats in 
the amphitheatre of French Hall for a 
Monday's nine o'clock after a weekend of 
round-robin dances and other carousels, 
found the good Doc peering through wire- 
framed spectacles at the hung-over assem- 
blage of foot-sore Botany I scholars and 
expounding on the evils of Terpsichorean 

The day's formal lecture would be based 
on the Doc's own first-year Botany text- 
book whose memorable first line was, 
"Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny." It's 
the only line I remember from that highly 
acclaimed text. I am not sure that, to this 
day, I can translate that three-word sen- 
tence intelligently. But I can translate the 
posturing of the "Doc" at those Monday 
morning lectures, when he would grasp the 

edges of his lectern, his shoulders humped 
over his ascetic frame, looking for all the 
world like Washington Irving's Ichabod 
Crane. Clad in his inevitable black suit, 
white shirt and black tie, he would remind 
in his reedy voice that "Dancing is the 
vertical manifestation of an horizontal de- 

Surely, he had "dirty dancing" in mind! 
A Hard Act to Follow 

Brother Joe had quickly become one of 
"Doc's Boys" who met every Friday night 
(no women allowed) to discuss the ancient 
mysteries of the Bhagavad-Gita and study 
the words of Madame Blavatsky. Joe later 
took a master's in Psychology at Amherst 
College and a PhD in Philosophy at the 
University of Pennsylvania. He was to 
concentrate on eastern religions, spreading 
Doc's words, as head of the Dept,. of En- 
glish at Northland (Minn.) College and 
then as professor of philosophy at Kent 
(Ohio) State University. His writings were 
published widely and by such diverse 
sources as "The Muslim World" journal, 
the Christian Theological Seminary at In- 
dianapolis, and the Dept. of Religious 
Studies at Punjab University in India. 

His was a hard act to follow. 

My earliest memories of campus life are 
most vivid where the Roister Doisters were 
concerned. This student drama group was 
inspired by Frank Prentice Rand, profes- 
sor of English for whom the Fine Arts 
building theater was later named. The 
RD's performance that I hold in vivid 
memory is its 1933 rendition of Willie 
Shakespeare's "As You Like It." 

It was performed under stars and mos- 
quitoes in the ravine that has since been 
covered over by the Campus Center Ga- 

rage. It sticks in my mind that it was 
staged as part of the 1933 Commencement 
Week to-do's, against a background of the 
College Pond festooned with Japanese lan- 
terns strung on light poles and coeds pos- 
ing as usherettes, clad in period costumes. 
They were memorable, as well, for their 
application of oil of citronella to the wrists 
of us theatre-goers (regardless of age), to 
ward off the blood-thirsty Aggie mosqui- 
toes reacting to our invasion of their wood- 
ed glen. We spectators were seated on 
bleachers facing the "stage," which was 
the space in front of the meandering 
stream that originated somewhere above 
Spring Street, on the hill to the east, near 
what is called Wildwood Cemetery. 

The Roister Doisters died with Profes- 
sor Rand, I think, . . . and not because I 
had been auditioned unsuccessfully for mi- 
nor roles during the pre-World War II 
semesters, when I had transferred in to the 
Class of '43 as a sophomore from Virginia 
Military Institute. 

Making the adjustment from an all- 
male, monastic-type existence to a coed 
campus was a kind of culture shock that I 
found hard to cope with. My dean's list 
status at VMI and high school scholastic 
honors record deteriorated rapidly enough 
to require a man-to-man talk with Dean 
Machmer, the diminutive Scot with twin- 
kling eyes, who was Dean-of-Everything, 
including Dean of Men. 

Ole Wee Wille Machmer of the building 
now of the same name, always stood up 
behind his desk when facing a visitor. He 
was so short (under five feet, I remember) 
that he could not bear to have anyone - 
students especially -looking down on him. 
His "chat" with This Delinquent took on a

tone of deep disappointment, as he re- 
minded me of the great expectations that 
my arrival had aroused because of the re- 
cord - academic and extra-curricular - 
that Brother Joe '33 and Sister Lillian '42 
had established. They were a hard act to 

He was almost in tears, as I promised to 
do better. 

I tried. 

And with the help of some veteran fac- 
ulty who remembered my sibling forbears 
on campus, my academic achievements 
did indeed rise. Memorable were Max 
Goldberg and Homer E. Prince of English, 
and History's Ted Caldwell, who wore 
neckties that had coeds drooling. History's 
A.A. MacKimmie, a veteran of almost 40 
years by then, had a problem staying 
awake during his own lectures. Dr. Jay R. 
Traver specialized in the Mayfly, over 
whom she was wont to exclaim, "See the 
little beasties," to her less-than-enthralled 
Zo lab students. 

Old Profs Never Die 

Homer Prince was affectionately known 
as "Bull" Prince, because of his leonine 
head which rested on broad shoulders 
without benefit of neck support. His favor- 
ite subject was the personal income tax 
law that had been enacted, according to 
"Bull," by "those jackasses in Washing- 

After WW II, when I returned to cam- 

pus to complete my senior year (1946-47), 
I took a course with him and heard the 
same fiscal diatribe of pre-war years . . . 
excepting that a switch had developed 
with the increased enrollment of women 
during the war years. Now, when he scorn- 
fully referred to the "jackasses" in Wash- 
ington, he seemed suddenly to realize the 
presence of women in the classroom. He 
would thus pause, hunch his short, stocky 
frame over the lectern in one of the small 
classrooms on the east side of the main 
floor of the Old Chapel, peer at his breath- 
less audience and, bobbing his now-sparse- 
ly covered leonine head, pronounce his 
concession to coed education: "And there 
are jennyasses, too." 

The "Bull" is remembered by the low- 
rise dorm of the same name in the South- 
west Residential Area, as is Prof. MacK- 
immie, who taught a course in Medieval 
History in the Old Chapel in a room that 
was propped by several posts. It was the 
good profs habit to wander among the 
note-taking class, lecturing without bene- 
fit of notes and often pausing in stride to 
prop himself against a post, the while con- 
tinuing his monotonous delivery. He had 
been past retirement age when he was re- 
called to man the classroom during the 
critical wartime shortage of teachers. 

Thus, when I took the Medie course, he 
was well advanced in years and, I now 
suspect, was suffering from narcolepsy. 
Many times, toward the end of the lecture

period, he would prop himself against one 
of the posts dotting the large room and fall 
asleep in mid-sentence. His voice silenced, 
we students sat immobile until the bell 
shrilled MacKimmie awake, when he 
would resume his lecture precisely where 
he had left off in mid-sentence, and then 
dismiss the class. 

He was further proof that they don't 
make such memorable profs, anymore. 
Prexy Is Memorable, Too 

Dr. Hugh Potter Baker was president of 
the College, at this time - in fact, he 
reigned from the Aggies through the Uni- 
versity. His rotund figure earned him the 
affectionate nickname of "Huge Pot" - a 
play on "Hugh," of course. His trademark 
was a stentorian sneeze which often rever- 
berated throughout South College, from 
his office on the second floor, where the 
Dean of the College of Fine Arts and Hu- 
manities is now located. It was here that 
"Huge Pot" kept his hand on the student 
pulse. Through his ever-open office door, 
he would bellow, "Who's out there?" to 
summon the hapless one whose footsteps 
fell upon his hypersensitive ears. And a 
long tete-a-tete would follow. 

The brother of Ray Stannard Baker, the 
prominent journalist and biographer of 
Woodrow Wilson, "Huge Pot" was proba- 
bly more conscious of the importance of 
public relations on the growing campus of 
Post WW II. Thus it was he who hired one 
Arthur Benson Musgrave in 1946 as Uni- 
versity Editor and Professor of Journal- 
ism. A former copy editor at the Houston 

(Texas) Post and a Nieman Fellow at Har- 
vard, "Muzzy" was brought to MSC as a 
full professor, despite a lack of academic 
credentials. This was done to pay him the 
highest salary possible, when the average 
faculty pay at that time was about $1,740. 

From the very beginning of his tenure, I 
had close contact with "Muzzy" because 
of my interest in a writing/journalism ca- 
reer. I was enrolled in Summer School 
1946, to make up credits that would assure 
me my war-interrupted graduation the fol- 
lowing June. The association would persist 
until Muzzy's death, several years ago, 
still teaching past retirement age. By then, 
he had achieved both the BA and BS at 
Boston University and the PhD from Min- 
nesota - in Journalism, of course. 

Even stronger than my reflections on 
the professors I had met on the campus is 
my election as Editor-in-Chief of the Col- 
legian. The young man who had won that 
post in Fall 1946 was a non-vet who left 
school for health reasons. I was named to 
fill out his term to lead the mostly female 
staff preparing the paper and distributing 
it from an office in the southwest corner of 
Mem Hall, where Brother Joe had done 
the same in 1932-33. 

My happiest Collegian memory is of the 
public relations we waged in the pages of 
the weekly paper from Sept. 46 to May 47, 
when we were able to announce on page 
one of the May 4 edition that Governor 
Bradford had signed S-533 that made the 
name change to "University of Massachu- 
setts" official and effective on that day. 

Our news was accompanied with the chim- 
ing of "Happy Birthday to You," from the 
Old Chapel Tower. 

That tune might well have been, for me, 
"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the com- 
ing of the U." For that day in May, now 
only two score and two years ago, provided 
the climax of happy reflections on a noble

ruth to tell, the activist students of the last full 
campus year of the Eighties were repeating histo- 
ry rather than making it. 

The record shows that UMass students as far 
back as 1870 were protesting. The "Aggies" of 
that day, although somewhat smaller in number, 
were just as ferocious in their battle to rid the 
campus of its required course in farm labor. 

In the years since, protests have almost become 
the extra-curricular sport that has students chas- 
ing administrators to deny the campus to the military- 
industrial complex, or trying to ensure a fair and objective 
press on campus by taking control of the offices of the 
campus student newspaper. 

Indeed, whatever the cause, it has been documented on 
numerous occasions that UMass activists have often cast 
the blueprint for student activism nationwide. 

William S. Clark, third president of Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College, seemed to predict that this would be the 
case when he outlined to the Pioneer Class of of old Mass 
Aggie the College's primary duties, which, among other 
things, included "serving the causes of the people in the

Little did Clark know that his words 
would soon serve as the temporary credo 
of members of Mass Aggie's first class, 
only six years after the school unlocked its 

In the spring of 1870, a group of stu- 
dents organized a mass protest against Ag- 
gie's manual labor requirement. Appar- 
ently, up to this point, the school required 
that all students participate in cleaning the 
fields and orchards and readying them for 
planting and harvesting. 

This daily ritual continued for some 
time until class leaders William H. 
Bowker and William Wheeler convinced 
their fellow classmates that such practices 
by the Administration were unfair. 

Complaining to President Clark that 
they had not come to the school to "learn 
how to dig potatoes," the students congre- 
gated in the Old Chapel and, in a heated 

confrontation, challenged Clark and fel- 
low administrator Levi Stockbridge to do 
away with the labor requirement. 

Seemingly undaunted, though, Clark 
persisted and threatened the students with 
expulsion, if they refused to immediately 
sign a document of recantation and prom- 
ise of obedience to authority. 

Bowker and Wheeler and their followers 
balked at this demand and held firmly to 
their ground. It wasn't until Stockbridge, 
acting as mediator, convinced both sides 
to compromise that the strike ended. In 
the end, the two sides agreed to a proposal 
that exempted seniors from the labor re- 
quirement and limited other students to 
engaging in manual labor along "educa- 
tional lines" only. 

'60s change face of activism 

The University did not witness anoth- 
er protest of such magnitude for over 30 
years, when in 1934 students marched 
up Pleasant Street in Amherst for 
"peace and world disarmament." Be- 
fore this, students seemed to be more 
concerned with aiding the efforts of 
World War I (and later World War II), 
thus leaving the campus front relatively 

Not so in the 1960s, however, when 
the Vietnam War not only reshaped 
world history, but also campus activ- 
ism, hustling many students to the 
streets of Amherst and the nation's cap- 
itol to voice their opposition to the 
country's presence in Vietnam. 

University President John Lederle, 
after witnessing a series of campus-wide 
protests against the DOW Chemical for 
its role in the War, blamed the unrest of 
the times on a changing morality and 
the expansion of the communications 

"The contemporary scene is difficult 
for youth — not just parents," he said, 
then. "A changing morality, a breaking 
down of values is omnipresent. Over all 
is the communications revolution. No 
previous generation has had the imme- 
diate pressure of mass media presenta- 
tion of all ills to which man is heir to." 

That was in 1968, when activism was 
almost at its peak on campus. At one 
point, organizing and being a part of a 
protest became so fashionable that 
thousands of students rallied to protest 
the administration's denial of the tradi- 
tional day off for spring. 

And much like activists today, stu- 
dents in the fall of 1969 constructed 
Free University City — a cluster of six 
geodesic domes on the Southwest play- 
ing fields designed to "greatly increase 
the 'indoor' space of the University," 
according to a member of South Coast, 
the group of architects and students 
who built the domes. 

Meanwhile, a smaller group of "rent 
strikers" congregated on the Amherst 
Common and put together what they 
called "Tent City" in protest of the 
town's lack of affordable housing. The 
Collegian at the time reported that the 
City and its residents lasted only two 
days and survived on hot pizzas from 
local restaurants.

tight circle inside, these two activists escape for a

takeover of Memorial Hall. 

Activism/ 119 

'70s activism 

But, it was the advent of the seven- 
ties that thrust student activism into 
national headlines and eventually set 
the pace that future activists would 
soon follow. 

Probably the most memorable 
event of the decade occurred some- 
time after May 4, 1970 — the day 
nervous National Guardsmen 
opened fire on a cluster of Kent 
State students protesting against the 
country's involvement in Southeast 
Asia. When the spray of bullets 
cleared and the crowd had scattered, 
four students lay dead. Ultimately, 
their deaths served as the spur to 
action for most students and led to a 
nation-wide student strike that al- 
most altered the educational system 
as we know it. 

An article in the Oct. 3, 1970 edi- 
tion of the New York Times noted 
that the "intensity of spring campus 
protests across the country raises the 
question of whether normal academ- 
ic subjects could ever be revived." 

Locally, student strikers aban- 
doned regular class sessions and in- 
stead, set up daily workshops to 
spread the word about the strike. 
Faculty members, as well, soon sided 
with the students in their quest by 
ignoring the traditional grading sys- 

As the strike progressed, protest- 
ers nation-wide presented the gov- 
ernment with a list of demands, 
among them: that the U.S. govern- 
ment end its systematic oppression of 
political dissidents and release all 
political prisoners; that the U.S. gov- 
ernment cease its expansion of the 
war in Cambodia and Laos by with- 
drawing its forces from Southeast 
Asia; and that the universities end 
their complicity with the U.S. war 
machine by ending defense research 
and their support for the ROTC. 

By the time the government had 
responded to these demands, the 
ROTC building on campus had been 
taken over by hundreds of students 
and faculty. Later that year, the 
ROTC program was stripped of its 
academic standing by a Faculty Sen- 
ate vote of 37-36. Not only did the 
motion take away the program's aca- 
demic credit but also reduced the

number of courses concentrating on 
military strategy and drills to a bare 
minimum. The ROTC program on 
campus has since been reinstated. 

Collegian takeover 

As the effects of the 1970 strike 
gradually subsided and the campus 
began to pull itself back together, a 
group of young women, 100 or so 
strong, disappointed in the Colle- 
gian's coverage of women's issues, 
took over the paper's offices for 12 
consecutive days. Julie Melrose, one 
of the organizers of the 1978 occupa- 
tion and the Collegian's first wom- 
en's editor, reminisced in a spring 
1989 article that it "was inevitable 
that some change was going to hap-

Up to that point, she said, getting stories 
about women's issues into the Collegian 
was almost always a struggle, if not impos- 

The first rumbling of trouble arose after 
a story Melrose wrote about the higher 
rate of cancer among women who smoked 
and used oral contraceptives was pulled 
because of "space limitations." 

As this so-called "creative editing" kept 
up, Melrose and other women organized, 
campus-wide, to bring their observations 
to a Collegian Board meeting. 

As Melrose says, "A very dramatic 
meeting took place and many statements 
were read about why women's news in the 
paper was important to the campus." 

Still, regardless of the women's protests, 
the board voted 92-28 not to give them the 
four advertisement-free pages they re- 

It was this decision that convinced the 
women that near-drastic measures had to 
be taken, if they expected to accomplish 
anything. So that night, while the Student 
Senate met in an adjacent room, the wom- 
en began their takeover. 

Armed with sleeping bags, toothbrushes 
and wood to barricade the doors, about 50 
women marched through the Collegian of- 
fices, settling in the center and corners of 
the room, making it their "home," as they 

"It wasn't our ideal," Melrose says, 
now. "But, we felt that it was the only way 

to keep our work from being tampered 

As the sit-in progressed, the women 
published their own in-house newsletter, 
aptly titled "The Daily Occupied Colle- 

In the end, although the occupation ulti- 
mately failed in securing coverage the 
women considered acceptable, they 
walked away feeling confident that they 
had at least opened the door to future 
change at the Collegian. 

Since then, campus activism seems to 
have dwindled significantly in the 1980s, 
when compared to the "energy and fervor" 
of the preceding two decades, wrote Colle- 
gian reporter Anthony Padovano in his 
May 1989 article, "Rally, Protest, Strike." 

Activism takes a tumble 

"It seems," he reported, "that the mas- 
sive student protests of the '60s and '70s 
were an anomaly and were doomed to live 
a striking but short life." 

He concluded that as the issues took on 
a new dimension, becoming more national 
in scope and having less of a direct effect 
on individuals, students gradually began to 
lose interest in them. Indeed, during the 
first half of the '80s, barely a fist was 
raised to protest even the most pressing 
world or campus issue. 

This sense of apathy began to change, 
however, in 1986, when the late Abby 

Hoffman and Amy Carter led a de- 
termined mass of students in protest 
of the administration's CIA recruit- 
ment policy. The protest culminated 
in the arrests of Hoffman and Carter 
and several students on trespassing 
charges, stemming from their occu- 
pation of Munson Hall. 

Nearly two years later, on Feb. 12, 
about 100 minority students, in a 
brilliant strategic move, took over 
the new Africa House, the minority 
cultural center on campus, for seven 
consecutive days. 

The band of students were protest- 
ing the University's handling of a 
Feb. 7th incident in which four white 
males allegedly shouted racial slurs 
and harassed two black students, Je- 
rome Smith and James Cunning- 
ham, and Smith's white girlfriend, 
Sarah Whittle. 

Both Whittle and Smith later filed 
private complaints against the four 
in Hampshire Superior Court. 

During the sit-in, minority stu- 
dents confronted Chancellor Joseph 
Duffey with a list of seven demands, 
including the expulsion of the four 
men and a commitment on the Uni- 
versity's part to increase minority 

After several days of delibera- 
tions, Duffey accepted the demands 
and praised the students for their 
show of "professionalism" in han- 
dling the situation. 

Although these protests managed 
to garner national headlines, they ul- 
timately failed to capture the energy 
and sense of urgency so common 
during the Sixties and Seventies. 

But, with the discovery last fall 
that the University was receiving 
over $11 million in military-funded 
research grants, the spark of student 
activism was once again ignited. 

Earlier, students had shown their 
disapproval of the state's cuts in the 
University's budget by erecting a 
mock shantytown along the banks of 
the Campus Pond to reflect "stu- 
dents out in the cold." Now, para- 
doxically, they were united to block 
a major source of funding for the

dents will recall happened on May 4; 
Massachusetts St^te Police used bil- 
ly clubs to clear a path for a bus 
carrying arrested protesters to the 
Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium 
where they were booked on trespass- 
ing charges. 

As the bus inched its way south on 
North Pleasant Street, several pro- 
testers were hit by the clubs and 
knocked to the ground. No serious 
injuries were reported after the tu- 

Of the entire incident, Vice Chan- 
cellor for Student Affairs Dennis 
Madson said, "The whole thing turns 
my stomach." 

The future of activism . 

From here, it is hard to tell in 
which direction the future of student 
activism will sing. If Padovano's as- 
sumption that activism comes in 
spurts is accurate, then the recent 
resurgence of student protests is only 
temporary. But, given the history of 
the campus, it is highly unlikely that 
the student movement is dead, or 
even dying. 

As Gabe Gabrielski, scholar in resi- 
dence at the Western Gateway Heri- 
tage Park in North Adams and a par- 
ticipant in the Sixties' protests, told the 
Collegian, "Students will continue to be 
involved because of their youth, ideal- 
ism and strength. They have always 
been the shock troops of the move- 

Indeed, whether picketing the DOW 
Chemical Co., or lambasting the DOD, 
the indomitable spirit of UMass activ- 
ism has held steady to the principles of

122/ Activism 


By Susan M. Hope 

Nearly 40 years ago, the 
study of Polymers was re- 
stricted to the confines of a 
tiny branch of the chemis- 
try department on campus. 
Now, with Governor 
Michael Dukakis giving 
his blessing, the Polymer 
Science and Engineering 
Department (PSE) is cele- 
brating the construction of 
a seven-story Polymer Re- 
search Center. 
In 1985, Governor Dukakis recognized 
the importance of polymer research at 
UMass and named the Polymer Science 
Program the newest of five Massachusetts 
Center's of Excellence. The goal of the 
Center of Excellence program is to estab- 
lish each center and its surrounding geo- 
graphic area as both the economic and 
academic world leader in its respective 

The new $20 million Silvio O. Conte 
Polymer Research Center will serve as a 
central facility for polymer research and 
academics. Currently the PSE has facili- 
ties in the Graduate Research Center, 
Goessmann Laboratory, and in several an- 
nex buildings and trailors. 

According to Simon Kantor, Professor 
of Polymer Science, the new center will 
consolidate the entire department. "Cur- 
rently, we have scattered facilities, labs 
and classrooms. The new center will bring 
everyone together. The faculty will be 
closer to the students and to each other." 
In addition, the new center will serve as 
a central location for other polymer orga- 
nizations on campus. The Polymer Re- 
search Institute (PRI) which oversees 
polymer research on campus, the Materi- 
als Research Laboratory (MRL) which 
promotes research in polymeric materials, 
and the Center for UMass Industry Re- 
search on Polymers (CUMIRP) which 
carries out research to identify new ideas 
and concepts in polymer science, will all be 
housed in the new center. 

The 167,000 square feet building will be 
connected to the Graduate Research Cen- 
ter and is funded by the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts, the federal government, 
and various industries. U.S. Representa- 
tive Silvio Conte (R-Pittsfield) for whom 
the building is named, was instrumental in 
securing $14 million in federal funding 
from Congress for the center. Many com- 

panies also support CUMIRP and UMass 
polymer research, such as General Elec- 
tric, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Dow 
Chemical Company, Dupont, Exxon and 

Called one of the top, if not the top in its 
field, the PSE is strictly a graduate pro- 
gram and attracts students from all over 
the world. According to Kantor, most of 
the students are pursuing Ph.Ds, which 
usually takes four to five years to com- 

Polymers include fibers, plastics and 
elastomers and play a major role in the 
materials industry. 

On campus polymer research includes 
projects studying biodegradable plastics 
and advanced composite materials, such 
as lightweight, high-strength plastics used 
to replace steel and other metals in auto- 
motive and aerospace industries. These 
materials are also used in doors, piping, 
paint, insulation, and other household 

Polymers are also important in com- 
merce, housewares, and electronics, espe- 
cially in computer and energy systems. In 
addition, with the developments in organ 
implants, synthetic skin, and blood and 
time-released drug implants, polymers are 
also becoming crucial in the medicine and 
pharmaceutical industry. 

The Polymer research Center is slated 
to be completed in 1992.

wildlife and fisheries biology. 
This diversity has come 
about through 1 25 years of so-

This year marked the 75th anniversary 
graduation of the University of Massa- 
chusetts" most distinguished alumnus, 
who was not only the founder of the 
nation's first major insurance company 
as well as the world-famous relief 
agency known as CARE, but also the 
namesake of our very own Campus 
Our illustrious Murray D. Lincoln was gradu- 
ated from the then-Massachusetts Agricultural 
College in 1 9 1 4 to become a leader in the business 
world while using his ever-abundant creative en- 
ergy to help people work together cooperatively. 
Like the sleek and stately structure that bears 
his name, Murray D. Lincoln's entire life stands 
as a towering example of how a little human 
dignity, compassion and perseverance can trans- 
form the ordinary soul into an extraordinary spirit 

Murray D. Lincoln was born on a small farm 
near Raynham, Massachusetts in 1882. After be- 
ing educated in the Massachusetts public school 
system, Mr. Lincoln went on to receive a bachelor 
of science degree in 1914 from Massachusetts 
Agricultural College. 

Immediately after graduation, he was busy or- 
ganizing farm cooperatives in the New England 
region. Mr. Lincoln became an evangelist for 

"I've clung to the basic idea that people ought 
to help themselves and that the way they ought to 
be doing it is in groups," Lincoln was once quoted 
as saying. 

Through his successful cooperative efforts with 
local farmers, Mr. Lincoln was appointed execu- 
tive secretary of the Ohio Farm Bureau Federa- 
tion in 1920. Soon after Lincoln's promotion, the 
bureau was successfully managing their own pro- 
duction operations and entered a new era of 

Yet, in 1926, Lincoln began to feel that the 
farm bureau was paying far too much for its 
insurance. After selling the board of directors on 
his latest brainstorm, the innovative Mr. Lincoln 
borrowed $10,000 and founded his own mutual 
insurance company. 

That seed of ingenuity soon proved far more 
fruitful than Lincoln had anticipated, so in 1948 
he resigned his position with the Farm Bureau to 
thrust his full-time attentions on the thriving in- 
surance business. The highly successful company 
later split from the Farm Bureau to become Na- 
tionwide Insurance in 1955. 

Lincoln's midas touch soon led Nationwide to 
become the nation's largest multiple-line insur- 
ance organization with assets in excess of 600 
million dollars by the time Lincoln retired in 

Though his business adventures were highly 
successful and potentially distracting, Mr. Lin- 
coln never ventured far from the plight of the 
farmer or abandoned his concern for the needy. 
According to 1914 classmate Dan O'Brien: 

"He (Murray) saw as the basic world need of 
today, finding a way to let more people of every 
race and color enjoy more of the good things in 

Seeking to take this compassionate philosophy 
to its most productive extreme, Mr. Lincoln 
founded CARE (a worldwide relief agency that 
assists the poverty-stricken and downtrodden in 
hundreds of countries around the globe) in 1945. 
Lincoln served as president of this noble institute 
only until 1957, but remained chairman of the 
board until 1964. 

Never tiring in his selfless pursuit to better the 
lives of others, Lincoln's other memberships in- 
cluded: The American Food for Peace Council, 
the National Commission on Literacy, and the 
U.S. Delegation to the U.N. Conference on Food 
and Agriculture. 

In his 1960 autobiography, titled Vice Presi- 
dent in Charge of Revolution, Mr. Lincoln de- 
scribed the dominant belief he held throughout 
his life: 

"Every big organization ought to have a vice- 
president in charge of revolution — somebody on 
the staff who'd spend fulltime keeping everything 
and everybody stirred up; somebody who knew 
when to nag and when to inspire. A kind of pro- 
fessional needier who, by timely reminders, would 
keep leadership on its toes and on the right 

That is what Murray D. Lincoln was all about: 
A professional needier who kept things stirred up 
in order to help everyone succeed. 

Mr. Lincoln retired from business in 1964 and 
passed away on Nov. 7, 1966 after a two year 

If there is one lesson Murray D. Lincoln's in- 
credible life has taught us, it is that with persever- 
ance all things are possible, and that there is 
greater dignity in helping others achieve. 

Yet, perhaps Murray D. Lincoln's most famous 
message is one we should all carry with us 
throughout our lives: 

"I've said over and over that people have in 
their own hands the tools to fashion their own 

Indeed, the bronze placque on the Campus 
Center Concourse is a reminder that such great- 
ness of spirit lives on in our own determination to 
be as much as we can be and give as much of 
ourselves as we can.

On April 12, the Index edi- 
tors decided to give the 
yearbook photographers 
a much-deserved day off. 
We needed new viewpoints, new 
ideas, and other photographer's con- 
ceptions of UMass, of its surround- 
ings and of its people. 

Our solution was simple-bring 
back the popular and much-demand- 
ed "Day in the Life" photo contest. 
Initiated in 1988, Day in the Life 
was designed as a contest for student 
photographers, both amateur and 
professional. The winners would 
have their work published in the 
eight page Day in the Life section of 
the Index. 

The rules were clearcut. We sup- 
plied the black and white film and 
developing to the first 100 entrants. 
We began passing out film at 9:00 
a.m. and within two hours our supply 
ran dry. The contest began at mid- 
night when participants then had 24 
hours to shoot anything pertaining to 
a typical day at UMass. 

All day long, the temporary Index 
photographers could be seen around 
campus - in the Campus Center, in 
the residence halls, near the pond 
and in Amherst Center. 

By the time the contest deadline 
passed, and the many negatives were 
processed and printed, we had hun- 
dreds of pictures to choose from. To 
ensure fairness, all of the photos 
were arranged according to an as- 
signed film and participant number. 
All names were deleted and un- 
known to the Day in the Life editors. 
Deciding which photos to use was 
far from easy. Unable to limit our 
choices to fit only eight pages, we did 
the next best thing and doubled the 
Day in the life section to 16 pages. 
What follows, then, is a pictoral 
essay of UMass through the eyes of a 
mass of student photographers. 

Our thanks to all the participants 
and our congratulations to the

Professor Philip "Billy" Hasbrouck, 1885 


^1^' S'iiS/iTt 7K. '»OPS 

We present to-day to the friends of our institution Vol. 1st of the Index, a 
pamphlet designed to represent the internal growth and status of the College, 
and which we hope may prove of interest alike to members of the College 
and to the public. 

In glancing back over the history of the College from its first feeble struggle 
for existence until the present state of comparitive development, we think 
that all should be satisfied with the measure of success which has attended 
our efforts. 

Of Presidents we have had three. As regards the cause of the first, charity 
forbids us to make any comment. In the loss of the second, the College 
sustained an injury which could be repaired only by the acquisition of a 
commanding and energetic spirit like that which animates our beloved Presi- 
dent of to-day. 

Our corps of Professors is one which any institution might well be proud of. 
From the President down they all have the love and respect of the students, 
and what more essential element can there be for the success of any institu- 
tion of learning? In the course of study marked out for us we recognize one 
calculated to give a high state of culture to all who may pursue it, and one 
which will sooner or later establish here an institution whose tendency shall be 
to advance the cause of science and promote the welfare of all who may 
directly or indirectly be brought under its influence. And yet, with all our 
success, there is need of continued effort, the greatest effort, both on the part 
of the students and those who have the government of the College in their 

The great question of the benefit of the College to the State is yet to be 
proved, and that only by the character and standing which its students shall 
sustain after leaving its walls, and when they erect the edifice of their future 
life on the foundation which if laid at all must be laid here. But we hope for 
the best, and trust that future numbers of the Index may show a rapid 
advance in all that pertains to our loved institution. 

-Editors of the 1870 Index 


We present today, to the students, faculty and alumni of the University of 
Massachusetts, volume 120 of the Index, a text for which more than a 
century has represented the internal growth and status as Massachusetts 
Agricultural College grew to Massachusetts State College and later to the 
University of Massachusetts. 

When the pioneer class of 1871 entered their junior year in 1868, a few 
members of the class gathered and decided to publish a pamphlet, or a 
yearbook, which would capture the highlights of that particular academic 
year. They named this 28 page pamphlet the Index. 

The first Index contained a register of class and society memberships and 
briefs of campus events, both serious and humorous. This pattern would be 
followed for the next few decades. 

The precedent was set. Each year, as a gift to the senior class, the junior 
class would publish the Index. And each year, as the classes grew in number, 
so did the pages of the Index. The Index remains as one of only a few 
permanent records of college life that has been preserved. 

In the mid 1900's, the internal organization of the Index changed. No 
longer would the Index be published solely by the junior class. The compila- 
tion of the Index became a campus event, and its arrival on campus was 
eagerly awaited by all. 

In 1985, the existence of the Index, the oldest organization on campus, was 
threatened. All university funding to the yearbook was slashed by a vote of 
the student senate. The Index, which previously relied almost entirely on 
student activity trust funds, faced extinction. To survive, drastic changes 
were initiated. Most notably, for the first time, students were charged for 
their yearbooks, cutting the circulation rates down to an all-time low. 

But the Index persevered, and the last two years have seen the Index 
reflourish. Actual book sales have increased dramatically, and book quality is 
better than ever before. 

Today, as the University celebrates its 125th anniversary, the Index cele- 
brates its 120th, making it the third oldest continuously published yearbook in 
the country. 

While many aspects of the Index have changed in the past 120 years, one 
thing continues to remain the same. As did the editors of the 1870 Index, we 
also hope "for the best, " and trust that future volumes of the Index will 
continue to show all the rapid advances that pertain to our university.

"That play was luck, but luck is 
when preparation meets 

- Coach Jim Reid 

M nd what a prepared team they 
' ' were. Mirroring last year's per- 
^ u formance, the 1988 University 
of Massachusetts Minutemen tack- 
led all available opportunities as they 
rushed to a 8-3 record and tied the 
University of Deleware for the title 
of Yankee Conference Champion. 
Riding high after four victories 
against Northeastern, Villanova, 
Richmond and New Hampshire, the 
Minutemen secured a berth in the 
NCAA Division 1-AA playoffs for 
the first time in 10 years, only to lose 
a grueling Thanksgiving day game to 
Eastern Kentucky and their super- 
fleet tailback Elroy Harris. 

The season started on a low note 
for coach Jim Reid and his squad. 
The beginning few contests saw the 
Minutemen divided as sub-par play 
on the part of the defense contrasted 
with the rehearsed tactics of the of- 
fense. It was not until the fourth 
game, when the Minutemen battled 
Boston University, that everything 
seemed to coalesce. The team played 
with a heightened intensity that en- 
abled them to steamroll over the un- 
suspecting Terriers and to compete 
successfully for the remainder of the 

Post-season play finally came as 
the team headed for the NCAA 
playoffs. Despite a favorable first 
quarter score of 14-0, senior quarter- 
back Dave Palazzi and his troops 
helplessly watched as E. Kentucky 
and its one multi-talented superstar 
robbed the Minutemen of their lead 
and ultimately of their National Ti- 
tle dreams. Although they returned 
home empty-handed, the Minute- 
men reaffirmed their national rank- 
ing by accosting the record books 
with impressive accomplishments 
that were, in part, responsible for 
their outstanding season. 

The 1988 UMass Football Team 
played with unmatchable levels of 
enthusiasm and comraderie. Perhaps 
Dave Palazzi best summed up the 
season when he said, "I had a lot of 
fun here, I'll never forget the 
memories." •

A brilliant season came to a dis- 
appointing close when head 
coach Pam Hixon's Minutewo- 
men lost to Northeastern University, 
2-1, in an NCAA Tournament quar- 
terfinal game. A win by the favored 
Minutewomen would have landed 
them a berth in the NCAA Final 
Four, just two victories away from a 
National Championship. 

Despite this unsettling loss, the 
season was full of bright moments 
for the Minutewomen. The team be- 
gan the season with seven victories, 
including six consecutive shutouts. 
This fast start propelled the team to 
an eventual 17-3-1 record for the 

Ranked consistently in the Divi- 
sion I top ten throughout the season, 
the Minutewomen earned this rank- 
ing by thoroughly dominating the 
opposition. UMass outscored their 
opponents by an astounding 60 to 11 
margin, garnering 13 shutouts and 
an impressive 0.52 goals-against 

For most of the season, the Min- 
utewomen appeared destined to 
reach the Final Four for the second 
year in a row. UMass did not lose 
until their ninth game of the season, 
a 1-0 overtime loss to perennial pow- 
erhouse Old Dominion University. 

Pam Hixon's squad rebounded 
with three consecutive wins before 
settling for an unsatisfying 0-0 dou- 
ble overtime tie with the West Ches- 
ter Golden Rams. The Minutewo- 
men then ran off five straight wins 
before closing out the regular season 
with a 3-2 loss to Connecticut. Later, 
the Minutewomen captured the At- 
lantic- 10 Tournament, shutting out 
Rutgers 2-0 and Penn State 1-0, be- 
fore bowing to Northeastern in the 
NCAA second round playoff game. 
The Minutewomen were paced by 
a well-balanced scoring attack, an- 
chored by junior Karen DeAngelis 
with 1 1 goals and three assists, and 
senior forward Tonia Kennedy, who 
netted 12 goals and one assist. 

In addition to capturing the inau- 
gural Atlantic- 10 Championship, 
several players received individual 
awards. Senior goal-tender Cindy 
Cox, who allowed just 11 goals all 
season en route to 13 shutouts. 
DeAngelis and senior co-captain 
Pam Bustin were each named Ail- 
American following the Minutewo- 
men's superb season.

Hopes of an NCAA playoff 
appearance by the Universi- 
ty of Massachusetts men's 
soccer team remained elu- 
sive, despite an 8-8-2 final record. 
Head coach Jeff Gettler blamed a 
lack of mental preparation, not an 
absence of physical talent, as much 
of the reason for his team's .500 fin- 

The season began well for the 
Minutemen, as they started with a 
pair of shutout wins at home over 
Maine and New Hampshire. UMass 
concluded its four game season 
opening homestand with a 1-0 loss to 
Temple and a 4-0 thrashing of St. 

Following a three game road trip 
in which the team scored only a sin- 
gle goal and lost all three games, 
the Minutemen returned home to 
host the Challenge Cup Tourna- 
ment. UMass captured first place in 
the Tournament, with two shutouts 
against West Virginia and Siena. 
Coach Gettler's squad followed this 
success with two more wins over 
Brown and Fairfield. After eleven 
games, the team's record stood at 7- 
4, giving them renewed optimism for 
the remainder of the schedule. 

Losses in four of the next five 
games quickly put an end to any 
post-season hopes the Minutmen 
were entertaining. The sole victory in 
this otherwise disappointing stretch 
was an impressive 4-0 shoutout over 
Northeastern University on Upper 
Boyden Field. 

After playing themselves out of 
post-season contention, pride be- 
came the main motivation that guid- 
ed the Minutemen's efforts. This de- 
termination was evident in their final 
two games of the season. Playing on 
the road, UMass dueled Rutgers to a 
scoreless draw in double overtime 
and concluded the season with a 1-1 
tie against Harvard. These two 
games against nationally ranked 
teams buoyed the team's spirits and 
preserved a .500 record for the sea-

nee again the University of 
Massachusetts women's soc- 
cer team proved that they are 
a talented team worthy of national 
recognition. Despite a disappointing 
and premature finish, the Minutewo- 
men consummated their 1988 season 
with an overall 14-3-1 record. 

The Minutewomen opened their 
season by capturing the Rhode Is- 
land Tournament and then managed 
to procure a six game winning 
streak. It was not until the Reds 
(coach Rudy's nickname for his 
team) met the UConn Huskies that 
they faced their greatest challenge to 
the date. On a cold and rainy day in 
Storrs, CT. the two contenders wres- 
tled in the mud only to arrive at a 0-0 

Knowing that another difficult ob- 
stacle to overcome was top ranked 
North Carolina, the Minutewomen 
prepared feverishly for the contest. 
They felt confident that their abili- 
ties would carry them through. Un- 
fortunately, the Minutewomen did 
not fare as well as hoped and conced- 
ed a 4-0 victory to the Lady Tar 

The UMass squad quickly rallied 
with a 3-2 conquest over second- 
ranked North Carolina State. This 
was a crucial success for the Min- 
utewomen after which they reeled 
off another four consecutive vic- 
tories, losing only one more regular 
season game to fourth-ranked Colo- 
rado College. 

The team concluded their 1988 
season on a disheartening note. For 
the first time in six years the Min- 
utewomen were denied a shot at the 
National Championship, after fall- 
ing to Wisconsin-Madison 1-2 in an 
NCAA quarter final game. Both of 
Wisconsin's goals came off restarts, 
a problem area for the Reds all sea- 
son. UMass repeatedly experienced 
difficulties with scoring as well. "We 
did everything it took to win this 
game but score," lamented head 
coach Jim Rudy, "I can't name a 
player who had a bad game." 

The 1988 season was destined to 
be a difficult one from the beginning. 
The new squad had to regroup after 
the loss of six seniors from last year, 
while simultaneously adjusting to 
first-year head coach Jim Rudy. In 
addition, the Minutewomen faced a 
rigorous schedule containing as 
many as four back-to-back road 
• games. Despite these challenges, the 
UMass women's soccer team pulled 
together and attained yet another 
triumphant season.

In a season marred by con- 
troversy, the University of 
Massachusetts men's bas- 
ketball team managed to 
persevere and play well enough to 
qualify for the Atlantic- 10 Tourna- 

The squad began the season under 
the direction of first-year Head 
Coach John Calipari, with few ex- 
pectations of immediate success. To 
further complicate this rebuilding ef- 
fort, UMass played its conference 
games in the Atlantic- 10, a strong 
conference dominated by nationally 
ranked teams such as West Virginia, 
Temple and Rutgers. Coach Cali- 
pari's difficulties were quickly com- 
pounded with the suspension of se- 
niors David Brown and Duane Chase 
in early January, under allegations 
of criminal activity. These unfortu- 
nate losses created a void in both 
leadership and scoring, particularly 
with the loss of Brown who was the 
team captain and leading scorer at 
the time. 

Despite these set backs, the team 
responded well and worked hard to 
play competitive and exciting bas- 
ketball throughout the season. Led 
by freshmen Anton Brown and Jim 
McCoy, the Minutemen finished the 
season positively, with five victories 
in their final fifteen games. Included 
among these games was an impres- 
sive 16-point win over Rutgers Uni- 
versity in which Anton Brown scored 
26 points and a 32-point effort by 
Jim McCoy in a loss against West 

With a 10-7 record at the end of 
the regular season, the Minutemen 
qualified for post-season play as the 
Atlantic- 10 Tournament number 
eight seed. UMass drew ninth-seed- 
ed St. Joseph's University as their 
first round opponent. What ensued 
was a heartbreaking game in which 
the Minutemen squandered a seven 
point lead in the closing minutes of 
the game and 35 points from Jim 
McCoy, before losing 87-83 in Phila- 
delphia to close out the season. 

The 1988-89 basketball season 
will long be remembered as the year 
of the freshmen. Jim McCoy and 
Anton Brown finished 1-2 in scoring, 
despite having no previous college 
basketball experience. In addition, 
McCoy was named the Atlantic- 10 
Conference Freshman of the Year, 
and both players were named to the 
Conference All-Freshman Team.

vercoming a number of 
injuries, the women's 
basketball team showed 
perseverance and deter- 
mination throughout the 
season and advanced to the Atlantic- 
10 post-season Tournament. 

The Minutewomen began the sea- 
son with five consecutive victories, 
generating excitement and raising 
hopes for an outstanding season. 
This enthusiasm, though, turned out 
to be short-lived, as Coach Kathy 
Hewelt's squad lost five of their next 
six games, including a pair of losses 
at the Bath Ironworks Classic. 

Inexperience and injuries also 
took their toll on the Minutewomen, 
particularly during the latter half of 
the season. The team lost junior 
guard Michele Pytko for the season 
due to a serious injury she sustained 
during the Bath Ironworks Classic, 
and senior co-captain Christel Zullo 
suffered an ankle injury that prema- 
turely ended her collegiate career. 
The team struggled into the playoffs, 
losing their final six games and 1 2 of 
their last 14. The Minutewomen 
closed out the regular season with a 
4-14 record in the Atlantic- 10 Con- 
ference and a 10-17 mark overall. 

St. Bonaventure University was 
the team's first round opponent in 
the Atlantic- 10 Tournament. UMass 
registered a convincing 76-62 win 
over the Bonnies at home in the Cur- 
ry Hicks Cage. This game was dou- 
bly special for the Minutewomen, as 
senior forward Beth Wilbor reached 
the 1,000 point plateau during the 
final home game of her UMass 

In their quarterfinal game against 
St. Joseph's in Philadelphia, Penn., 
the team did not fare nearly as well. 
The Minutewomen were soundly 
beaten, 78-48, by St. Joseph's, the 
Tournament's number one seed. 

UMass was led in scoring by ju- 
nior center Helen Freeman, and re- 
ceived significant contributions from 
seniors Beth Wilbor and Christel

The University of Massa- 
chusetts Men's Gymnas- 
tics team concluded their 
season with a solid third 
place finish, despite a dis- 
appointing fourth place showing at 
the Eastern Intercollegiate Gymnas- 
tics League Championships in Syra- 
cuse, New York. 

The Minutemen soundly trounced 
all but two of their regular season 
opponents and traveled to the 
EIGL's with an impressive second 
place ranking in hopes of making 
UMass history. 

While the fourth place finish tied 
the UMass record for the best finish 
in 26 years, the team could not help 
but feel disappointed after a medio- 
cre performance capped off an oth- 
erwise brilliant season. Less than 
perfect routines certainly contribut- 
ed to UMass' problems, yet Head 
Coach Roy Johnson explained that 
harsh judging was a major contribu- 
tor to his squad's sub-par scores. 

"In the dual meet season, some of 
those small tenths are overlooked," 
he said. "When you get to the cham- 
pionship meet, they bring in the best 
judges who are there to separate out 
the best routines so they are looking 
for every little tenth."

ishing touches on an 
impressive season at the At- 
lantic- 10 conference meet, fol- 
lowed by a competition with 
Temple University and guest 
Northeastern University. 
These contests concluded the 
minutewomen's 1989 season 
with an overall 7-4 record. 

The Minutewomen entered 
the A-lO's ranked fifth and 
proudly surpassed everyone's 
expectations landing a fourth 
place and posting 180.95 
points. The Minutewomen 
were aspiring for a berth in the 
post season regional meet but 
fell just short with two close, 
but devastating losses to Tem- 
ple and Northeastern. Sum- 
ming up the season, a proud 
head coach Alfie Mitchell re- 
marked, "I couldn't have 
asked for anything else."

' he University of Massachusetts 
men's lacrosse team has be- 
come synonymous with excel- 
lence and the 1989 season was no 
exception. Umass' first and only 
Head Coach, Dick Garber, saw his 
Gorillas turn in one of the best sea- 
sons in recent memory as they 
reached the NCAA Division I quar- 
terfinals for only the second time in 
history, before bowing out of the 

The Gorillas began the season 
with a successful three game Califor- 
nia road trip during spring break. 
The squad returned home with three 
impressive victories in which they 
outscored their opponents by a com- 
bined 82 to 14 margin. 

UMass' home schedule began 
with a thrilling, yet disappointing 12- 
1 1 loss to a strong Cornell University 
team. In the game, the Gorillas 
fought back from a 10-6 third quar- 
ter deficit to tie the game at 1 1 all, 
before they succumbed to a late Cor- 
nell goal. 

Dick Garber's team rebounded 
quickly though, running off nine 
consecutive victories. Included in 
these wins was a 1 2-4 defensive gem 
at Harvard which secured UMass its 
fourth consecutive New England 
Championship and 12th overall. Re- 
fusing to rest on these laurels, the 
Gorillas finished this streak with vic- 
tories against Rutgers and Boston 
College before entering their final 
contest against the most feared of- 
fensive team in the nation, the Or- 
angemen of Syracuse University. 

With a crowd of over 12,000 look- 
ing on, Garber's Gorillas rallied 
twice from six goal deficits, only to 
endure a heartbreaking 10-9 loss. In 
what was surely one of the best 
games of this or any other season, a 
furious UMass comeback was 
thwarted by the stall tactics em- 
ployed by Syracuse late in the game. 

Despite the disappointing loss to 
Syracuse, UMass entered the 
NCAA Division I playoffs seeded 
seventh. For the second year in a 
row, UMass drew Cornell University 
as their first rival. The Gorillas pro- 
ceeded to avenge both last season's 
13-11 play-off upset and their regu- 
lar season loss to Cornell by trounc- 
ing the Big Red, 16-7. 

UMass then traveled to Balti- 
more, Maryland to take on second 
seeded John Hopkins University, the 
most successful team in the history 
of NCAA lacrosse. Massachusetts 
was stymied by a brilliant defensive 
effort, losing 9-4, thus bringing their 
superb season to an end.

— 2-11 final record tells most of 
the story for the 1989 women's 
lacrosse team. The season was 
unusual for the Gazelles, as it was 
their first losing season in 14 years. 
But much of the reason for this sub- 
par performance can be attributed to 
an inexperienced and youthful 

At the start of the Spring, head 
coach Patti Bossio must have expect- 
ed a season like this. With six fresh- 
man in the starting lineup and five of 
them starting on defense, it was 
bound to be a rebuilding year for the 

The schedule began well for 
UMass, as coach Bossio's squad 
topped Hofstra University 16-11 in 
their season opening game. The re- 
mainder of their games did not go 
quite as well, however. The team lost 
eight consecutive games before man- 
aging another victory against 

Though the Gazelles finished up 
their season with three more losses, 
these games reflect hopes for the up- 
coming season. UMass held each of 
their last three opponents to under 
ten goals, as an inexperienced de- 
fense began to solidify their play. 
The defensive corps was anchored by 
sophomore goaltender Liz Keats, 
who finished the season with respect- 
able 10.1 goals-against average and 
a .564 save percentage. 

On offense, UMass was led for the 
second year in a row by junior Sue 
Murphy who netted 27 goals to go 
with 18 assists. Senior co-captain 
Cathy Fuhrman was another impor- 
tant contributor, with 35 goals on the

The 1989 baseball season was 
anything but satisfying for the 
UMass Minutemen, as disap- 
pointing play on the field and dissen- 
sion off the field resulted in a 17-27 
record on the year. 

Hopes were high at the start of the 
season, especially since UMass came 
in as the reigning New England 
champion. With a large group of tal- 
ented freshmen, the Minutemen ap- 
peared ready to build upon this past 

Head coach Mike Stone's squad 
failed to meet the expectations made 
of them, however, as they did not 
even qualify for post-season play. 
This inconsistent performance was 
surely a contributing factor in the 
difficulties the team experienced off 
the field. 

As the season wore on and losses 
mounted, friction between the play- 
ers and the coaching staff ensued. 
Two players were dismissed from the 
team and another five members left 
on their own accord. Though the rea- 
sons for this dissension were not en- 
tirely clear, the frustrations the en- 
tire team was experiencing only 
exacerbated the problems. 

Despite these many difficulties, 
the season was not without its bright 
spots for the Minutemen. Freshman 
catcher Lou Olivieri and freshman 
centerfielder Brian Bright, in partic- 
ular, were welcome additions on of- 
fense for UMass. Seniors Drew Sec- 
cafico and co-captain Dave 
Talgheder are notable among other 
key performers for the Minutemen. 

Following their 1988 success, this 
past Spring was an obvious disap- 
pointment for the UMass baseball 
program. Let's just hope the 1989 
season has not set a bad precedent 
for the Minutemen.

pair of shutout losses in the 
opening round of the NCAA 
Northeast Regional Tourna- 
ment brought an untimely end to the 
Minutewomen's hopes of a trip to 
Sunnyvale to participate in the 
NCAA Softball tournament finals. 

A visit to the West Coast would 
not have been the first such trip of 
the season for Head Coach Elaine 
.Sortino's team. The Minutewomen 
began the season with a 13 -game 
California road trip which served a 
dual purpose. This early season road 
swing increased the difficulty of the 
team's schedule and garnered wider 
exposure for UMass. These two fac- 
tors proved invaluable in qualifying 
the team for post-season play. 

A combination of injuries and dif- 
ficult competition left the Min- 
utewomen with a 3-10 record, fol- 
lowing their season opening road 
trip. But, Coach Sortino's players 
quickly responded upon their return 
home. Totman field proved to be a 
friendly sight, as the Minutewomen 
posted a perfect 18-0 regular season 
home record. Overall, the team won 
29 of their 36 regular season games. 
With their strong regular season 
finish, the Minutewomen qualified 
for the Atlantic- 10 Tournament. The 
team traveled to New Brunswick 
where they took on their strongest 
conference rivals. 

Anchored by the strong pitching 
of freshman Holly Aprile and senior 
co-captain Christine Wanner, 
UMass captured their third Atlan- 
tic- 10 Championship in four years. 
This win also helped the Minutewo- 
men secure an invitation to the 
NCAA Northeast Regional Tourna- 

The University of Massachusetts 
was then selected by the NCAA to 
be the host school for the Double 
Elimination Tournament. Unfortu- 
nately for the Minutewomen, their 
18-game home winning streak was 
halted at a most inopportune time. 
In their opening game, UMass was 
blanked 1-0 by a tough Connecticut 

Now faced with elimination, 
UMass was forced to play Oregon in 
a must-win situation. Sadly, the 
Minutewomen ran into a hot pitcher. 
Freshman Katie Wiese shut out 
Massachusetts 2-0, while surrender- 
ing only two hits. Their second loss in 
as many games bounced UMass 
from the Double Elimination Tour- 
nament and ended all thoughts of a 
much-hoped-for second trip to

The Index editors are proud 
to make a very special ded- 
ication to UMass Police Officer 
Jerome Yezierski. 

Jerome joined the UMass Po- 
lice Department in 1977. In ad- 
dition to his regular police re- 
sponsibilities, Jerome has also 
trained UNass police officers in 
defensive tactics and survival 
methods. He was also instru- 
mental in making the South- 
west police substation a suc- 

As much concern, sensitivity 
and motivation that Jerome 
has given to the UNass Police 
Department, he has also given 
to the student body. 

Tor the past six years, Je- 
rome has trained both student 
security personnel and concert 
security staffs. He has also pre- 
sented many informational 
and safety workshops in the 
residence halls. Both his con- 
cern for students and his in- 
volvement with student groups 
has made him a popular, re- 
spected and well-liked mem- 
ber of the campus community. 

In November, 1988, a freak

Jerome critically ill and para- 
lyzed from the rib-cage down. 
Hospitalized for months, Je-

successful fight for survival has 
been a proven inspiration to 
many. Today, Jerome is recov- 
ering at home with his family. 

and plans to return to work in 
the near future. 

Jerome, the Index joins your 
family, friends, co-workers and 
the entire campus community 
in wishing you a quick and 
healthy recovery, and all the 
best that you so much deserve.

,he American Indian 
Student Association is a 
relatively new organiza- 
tion when considering 
the history of the Uni- 
versity. Since its incep- 
tion, A.I.S.A. has developed a tradi- 
tion which prevails each autumn; the 
annual Inter-Tribal Pow Wow. Tribes 
from over twenty groups are represent- 
ed, providing a shared learning experi- 
ence for both the native Americans 
and the campus population. This year 
the event was held on the 17th and 
18th of September. 

The Pow Wow brings with it a week- 
end of festive and cultural events. Dur- 
ing the two-day extravaganza the cam- 
pus pond area is swarming with 
musicians and vendors who display 
various crafts. The atmosphere exudes 
a sacred spirit enhanced by dance com- 
petitions, honor songs, and traditional 
foods, ranging from succotash to blue- 
berry sweetcakes.

fKBl^ ancy what a game of chess would be if all the 
chessmen had passions and intellects, more or 
less small and cunning; if you were not only 
uncertain about your adversary's men, but a 
little uncertain also about your own . . . You 
might be the longest-minded of deductive reasoners, and yet 
you might be beaten by your own Pawns. You would be 
especially likely to be beaten, if you depended arrogantly on 
your mathematical imagination and regarded your passionate 
pieces with contempt." -George Eliot 

Gathering every Tuesday in the Campus Center to match 
wits over the battle board, the members of the UMass Chess 
Club seek to promote interest and enjoyment in that ancient 
and esteemed war game, competitive chess. One need not have 
prior knowledge of the game in order to join the club; all that is 
necessary is an interest in chess, and the desire to know more 
about how it is played. The UMass Chess Club is therefore 
open to players of all levels of experience, and welcomes 
beginners as well as masters. 

Headed by President Gary Parker, the Chess Club provides 
interested students with creative activities pertaining to the 
game. A highlight of the 1988-89 school year was Mass Insan- 
ity, a 24-hour chess tournament held in February.

dual purpose of giving students 
training in broadcasting and radio produc-

range of music (including rock, reggae, 
soul, funk, blues, jazz, and country) to the 
Pioneer Valley and UMass community. 
The radio station intercedes the music 
with reports of news, sports, weather, and

cently installed a new $20,000 microwave 
link for wider broadcasting. 

The station is run by volunteers who 
have chosen to provide entertainment for 
University students and half a million oth-

funds to support WMUA come mainly 
from the Student Activities Trust Fund, 
with smaller contributions from local busi-

The staff of the new Students Program helps to prepare incoming freshmen for college life at UMass during an orientation program offered over the summer. 

f^ veryone remembers their 
§ first "real taste" of UMass. 

f^ Indeed, the smouldering 
■^"* summer orientations are a 
varietable buffet of cutural 
and academic opportunities available to 
the incoming freshman. These three- 
day sessions are led by upperclassmen 
to introduce incoming freshmen to the 
University of Massachusetts and cam- 
pus life. 
The upperclassmen lead small groups 

of freshmen through informational 
talks and casual or personal conversa- 
tions. This is important because it al- 
lows the new students to meet each oth- 
er, and to realize that upperclassmen 
are students just like themselves. 

Throughout this three day period the 
freshmen follow several processes. 
Among these are meetings with advi- 
sors, course selection, identification 
photographing, and choosing a residen- 
tial area for living on campus. Social 

gatherings are also sponsored during 
orientation. Movies, volleyball games, 
and pizza parties are provided, promot- 
ing interaction among the freshman. 

The University recognizes its large 
size and desires to represent itself as an 
institution capable of offering extensive 
programs and activities worthy of this 
stature. However, the University 
chooses to create a homelike environ- 
ment by orienting the freshmen with the 
school on a smaller scale as well.

tainment for the University and the sur- 
rounding community, the Guild is designed to 
involve students in musical theatre outside of 
the Department of Theatre. 

Spring semester 1989, the Guild packed 
students into the Fine Arts Center with its 
rendition of the popular musical "West Side 
Story." The show was produced solely by stu- 
dents and ran March 30 through April 1. 

The Guild staff consists of five board mem- 
bers, and about 25 official members.

The University Players is a non-

students of the Five College Area 
exposure to all aspects of the theatri-

behind-the-scenes production work. 
Originally known as the Southwest 
Theatre Group, the organization ex- 
panded this year, producing several 
works of note, including a comedy in 
the fall entitled "Beyond Therapy," 
and the spring musical, "That's En- 
tertainment." Directing credit for 
these endeavors went to Peter Gali-

Indeed, the University of Massachusetts Min- 
uteman Marching Band (UMMB) with its magical 
ability to capture the attention of audiences wher- 
ever it performs, is known around the nation as a 
top collegiate band. Highlights of the 1988 season, 
for example, included a four-day trip to Delaware 
and half-time performances at two New England 
Patriots football games. In addition, the UMMB 
sponsored band day, which was a performance at a 
UMass football game that included over 1,500 
high school participants — all of this on top of its 
regular performances at all home and many away 
football games. 

Under the direction of George N. Parks and 
assistant director Thomas Hannum, the UMMB is 
active from late August until late November. The 
first performance is the opening football game, 
which is usually the first Saturday of September. 
Before this, though, the 300 members of the 
Band practice for a solid week in late August from 
8 a.m. until midnight on the intramural fields, 
training to perfect their marching techniques, field 
drills, and musical execution. 

"Band Camp is the most intense week of the 
semester," says Donna Cabral, assistant manager

Members of the

of the Band for the past two years, and band mem- 
ber for the last four. 

"In one week, 300 students not only learn march- 
ing techniques and musical pieces, but also an en- 
tire field show." 

From the first note of "Fight UMass" to the 
traditional last chorus of "My Way," the UMMB 
is a grand spectacle of sound, color and majesty, 
bringing its onlookers to their feet after most 

Freshmen compose half the Marching Band. The 
1989 ensemble, for instance, included 300 mem- 
bers, 150 of whom were freshmen. "Bandos," as 
they refer to themselves, represent all majors on 
campus. Only a few of the musicians are music 

Although Band members receive two academic 
credits for their work, time commitment and dedi- 
cation, most are not in it for academic necessity or 
departmental requirements. 

"I have asked myself why I've marched for four 
years," says Cabrai, a political science major. "I've 
been rained on, snowed on, sunburned, marched 
after hurricanes, eaten out of paper bags for three 
days straight, slept on gym floors, and given up 
almost all of my fall Saturdays. Yet, I couldn't be 
on this campus without Marching Band. Most of 
my best college memories are Band related." 

When members of the Band accompanied the 
UMass football team on its four-day stint in Dela- 
ware this past year, they were greeted with rousing 
ovations from audiences at both high school and 
music festivals in the state. The band wrapped their 
visit up with an energetic half-time finale at the 
University of Delaware. 

"We were well received everywhere we per- 
formed," says Cabrai. "We got standing ovations 
at all of our shows." 

Six buses were chartered to take the Band on 
their tour. For four straight days, the Band traveled 
and performed. And for three days and nights, 300 
Bandos slept on gymnasium floors and ate meals 
from paper bags and fast food restaurants. 

Jim Guidace, equipment manager for the Band, 
said transportation and food costs for the Delaware 
tour exceeded $24,000. "Bus expenses and food 
costs were each $3,000 a day. In addition to the six 
buses, a truck and full-size van were needed to 
transport percussion and field equipment," says 

The Band receives no funding from the Universi- 
ty. Instead, most funds come from alumni contri- 
butions and various fundraisers. In September, the 
band raised over $20,000 from a massive magazine 

"Mr. Parks promised to swim in the campus 
pond if we met the $20,000 goal," explained Ca- 
brai. "I think he (Parks) was shocked when we 
made over $20,000." 

With the exception of professional music and 
field instructors, the UMMB is a student-run orga- 
nization. The administrative staff consists of Band 
members who work behind the scenes to ensure a 
smoothly running season. To do this, the staff coor- 
dinates all the day-to-day and season-long events of 
the Marching Band. By participating on Band ad- 
ministrative staff, students learn management, 
time-budgeting and interpersonal skill. 

"We deal with the coordination of events, the 
internal problems, interpersonal relations and fi- 
nancial and time-budgeting of the band," says Ca- 
brai. "We do everything from scheduling buses and 
rehearsal fields to planning homecoming events 
and overnight trips." The Marching Band also has 
a student staff that includes drum majors, rank 
leaders and drill instructors. 

The Band also has its own sorority and fraterni- 
ty; tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Psi are Band service 
organizations and are chartered nationally. The 
Greek members and pledges sponsor band fun- 
draisers, socials and other services to the Band and 
its members.

series for Black History Month, a lecture by actress Cicely 
Tyson, and the ever-popular annual Funk-o-Thon to its 
recent credit.

Celebrated poet Allen Ginsberg was another of the DVP's personalities to grace UMass. 

r/? he Distinguished Visitors 
Program is operated by 
undergraduates of the 
University for the stu- 
dents and faculty of the 
Five College Area. The DVP strives 
to bring a diverse variety of speakers 
to the University in order to heighten 
student sensitivity to global affairs, 
issues, and happenings. 

The DVP accomplishes this by in- 
viting to campus those persons whose 
experiences in international and do- 
mestic affairs, the sciences, human- 
ities and the arts, politics, and media 
qualify them to interpret, explain, 
and raise questions about life in all 
its dimensions. 

The co-chairpersons of the organi- 
zation during this highly successful 
year were Judi Kohn and Virginia 
Hunt. Virginia Hunt summarized 
her feelings on the DVP: "This se- 
mester has been an exciting, contro- 
versial and eventful one. I am 

pleased with the success of our last 
few programs, and I hope that the 
interest level continues for future 

The DVP hosted several signifi- 
cant guests this year, including con- 
temporary poet Allen Ginsberg. In 
the fall. The DVP sponsored Randy 
Shilts, author of And the Band 
Played On, a comprehensive book on 
the history, economics, and politics 
of the AIDS virus. The DVP also 
presented a debate on abortion with 
Judy Goldsmith supporting pro- 
choice and Phyllis Schlafly support- 
ing pro-life. The debaters were fiery 
and excited, and the crowd was non- 
uniform, varied in opinion and 
weighted with questions and obser- 

The DVP is a well-known and 
well-respected organization which is 
always looking for students to devote 
time and energy to their programs.

jgbat do you do if you are a 
UMass student with 
about 40 to 50 hours to 
kill each week? 
You start a reporting 
career at the Massachusetts Daily 
Collegian - what else? The Collegian 
is New England's largest daily col- 
lege newspaper with a circulation of 
21,000 and a staff of about 200. 

The task of publishing a newspa- 
per five days a week is monstrous, 
especially when those committed to 
the task are novices with full-time 
jobs (courses). 

The important thing, though, is 
that we do it. We like to think of 
ourselves as the University's only 
student-run periodical without polit- 

ical or social bias. 

So that the Collegian will come to 
you every school day, we employ ma- 
niacs, people who often do not see 
the light of day. Surprisingly, 
though, there are few complaints 
from this bunch. The paper seems to 
have a grotesque addictive effect on 
people, sometimes causing slight 
changes in their normal daily rituals: 
first they stop shaving, then they stop 
eating real food, then they stop 
sleeping; but they never stop living. 

Aside from the pale skin and weak 
bodies, this lifestyle has many re- 
wards. It is a way to be published 
without passing a test, succeeding in 
an interview, or bribing someone. 
The Collegian is also a place to 

sharpen writing and reporting skills, 
while drinking free, but bitter, cof- 

But, there is more to the Collegian 
than reporting and writing. 

Let's talk graphics. 

Without their contribution- which 
quite often continues into the wee 
hours of the morning - the paper 
would not be published. 

Our business employees have the 
important task of handling the pa- 
per's finances. Their work is impor- 
tant since the Collegian supports it- 
self from advertising revenue raised 
without the help of the University.

rhe Bicycle Racing Club is 
a group at the University

promotes cycling as a 
competitive sport. Over thirty mem- 
bers strong, the bike team travels up 
and down the East Coast to compete 
against other schools, such as the

mance by Peter Vollers, who cap- 
tured the Men's A title. The Bicycle

one on the East Coast and in the top 
ten nation wide.

Club Sports — Bike Team/235 



rhe concrete Canoe Club is an organiza- 
tion formed every year through the Civ- 
il Engineering Department and the 
American Society of Civil Engineers. 
The club devotes countless hours to the design and 
construction of a canoe made entirely out of con- 
crete, wire mesh, and wood trim. This year when 
the canoe was completed in mid-April, the boat 
was launched on the campus pond and then taken 
to Barnard, VT for the Annual Concrete Canoe 

Snow was falling at the 1989 Concrete Canoe 
Competition, as the boats were launched onto the 
frigid waters of Silver Lake. UMass had some stiff 
competition, facing UMaine, MIT, UNH, URI, 
Tufts, UVM, and Coast Guard. UMass finished 
third in the "Woody" division 

Next year, UMass will be the host of the 1990 
Regional concrete Canoe Races. Although the 
shoes of Dan, Uncle Chuck, Dan, Jim, Pete, Chris, 
Jim, Don, Kathy, and Kim will be hard to fill, next 
year's squad will surely build a fantastic boat. 
Memories of Sweetness," however, will not fade. 

Above and RighcThe Concrete Canoe Team battled both calm 
and stormy conditions at the races on Silver Lake.

Congratulations to seniors everywhere for having pulled 
through these past four (or five or more) years to graduate. 
Oh, and congratulations for surviving add/drop lines and D.C. 

I came to this school not knowing what my major would be 
or what my future would hold. In these past four years, I've 
worked at the Campus Center Coffee Shop. I've done security 
for the Union Program Council (UPC), seen five or more 
concerts for free and made more than a handful of great 
friends, at the same time. Then, there was the Union Video 
Center (UVC), which let me dabble in television and video. I 
did two internships through the Internship Office and can't 
believe how much of an advantage it gave me now that I'm 
heading out into the real world. Then, there was all the stuff I 
didn't get around to and wish I could stick around a little 
longer to complete. 

In all, this school had a lot to offer me, all I had to do was 
reach out and take it. I made of it what I wanted. 

Future Plans: To be a T.V. producer or work in magazines. 

Favorite Class: Biology of Cancer with Alby Reiner. 

What Motivated Me: My dad, good professors. 

Most Valuable Thing You Learned While Attending UMass: 

Take advantages. 

Most Memorable Experience: Spring Concerts.

At the risk of sounding cliche, "I can't believe it's over!" So, 
like, what do you mean I've got to get a job, a career? Serious- 
ly, though, I would have to say this is an incredibly strange 
junction in my life. This is the most exciting, intense, confused, 
scary, and unsure time I've ever experienced. 

God, I love this! 

I'm immensely grateful to the University for opening so 
many doors for me. Most of these doors are within myself. I 
entered this school at 5'10" and 150 lbs.; I'm leaving school at 
5'10" and 150 lbs., but to say that I have not grown would be a 

Favorite Places: The Hatch Bar; Comedy Night every Tues- 
day (long live 90^ drafts), the Calvin Theatre, Jakes in 

Least Favorite Places: Mahar Auditorium, the Library Tow- 
er, SOM Computer Lab. 

Most Missed Experience: Feeding the ducks at the pond, 290 
popcorn — what a bargain! 

Least Missed Experience: Being attacked by a flock of hun- 
ger-crazed campus water fowl, while attempting to supply 
them with nourishment. 

Future Hopes: That the Celtics can put together a starting five 
and learn to get back on transitional defense. 
Future Plans: Possibly graduate school, a career in advertis- 
ing, and some political interest (Democrat, of course!).

There are two types of graduating seniors I've encountered 
this past spring — those who are all too eager to leave and 
those who will miss UMass like crazy and want to stay. I'm not 
sure how I feel. There are parts of me that never want to see a 
textbook or take an exam again. But then I think about life in 
Amherst, all the people I've met, all the conflicts we as stu- 
deiits dealt with, and I realize how much I will miss UMass, 
too. I wouldn't have traded the past four years for anything. I 
don't think there is a better place to broaden your academic, 
social, and political minds as UMass. 

As Student Trustee, my last year here has been less than 
normal, but it has given me a certain insight into this Universi- 
ty not many students have. Don't ever slight this place — 
you've just graduated from possibly the most academically and 
socially rewarding university in the Northeast. Good luck in 
the future . . . and I hope life in the "outside" world treats you 

Future Plans: To go to law school and eventually be an enter- 
tainment or sports lawyer. 

Advice to Future Students: Get involved in activities, you'll 
meet your greatest friends (and if it's the SGA, maybe your 
worst nightmares). 

Most Valuable Thing You Learned While Attending UMass: 
That I wasn't as "aware" as I thought I was. 
Most Memorable Experience: The day after I was elected 
Student Trustee. It was a high I'll never forget.

The University of Massachusetts has talcen my multicultur- 
al and trillingual background and has redefined me as an 
individual. I've had abundant opportunities to interact with a 
diverse student population, exceptional faculty, and active 
organizations. Whether working at the University Placement 
Office, Undergraduate Admissions, serving on University 
committees or attending University functions, there was al- 
ways an added ingredient instrumental to my academic educa- 
tion. I've enjoyed four years of young adulthood. I'm leaving 
with new acquaintances, new ideas and many fond reflections. 
I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I must 
leave now because the world has stored surprises for me. 
Thanks UMass.

Future Plans: To teach health; kids are the best. 

Most Vivid Memories of UMass: Cancun on spring break, the 
days of tailgating, sledding on D.C. trays, everyone's faces 
when spring finally comes around, walking up "the hill," BBQs 
at Brandywine, "Time Out," and exchanging weekend stories 
on Sunday morning. 

Most Important Person at UMass: The hot dog man outside 
of Barsi's. 

Pet Peeve: Drivers who put on their directional after they have 
taken the turn. 

Most Valuable Thing Learned at UMass: How to spell "pro- 
fessor," ... is it two fs and one s or one f and two s's? 

Most Prized Possession: My 1968 Mustang. 

Advice to Future Students: If you can't get a class, tell them 
you are a senior and need it to graduate, if that doesn't work . . 
. start to cry. 

Bye Everybody! Thanks to my buddies, my professors, and 
everyone else at UMass!

'■«:•"*''*</-•* ilj,/f»!e»- VSeJj-iniftf^gltUtilOVh'^* 


As a graduating senior from tlie University of Massachu- 
setts, I am nothing but enthusiastic about the time I spent 
here. Four years ago, I did not know what I wanted or how to 
find out. Now, I feel really prepared for the future. These have 
been the best four years of my life, and I have a lot to be 
thankful for. 

I'm lucky because while I was getting a top quality educa- 
tion, I was outfitted with many of the tools needed to be 
successful in today's world. I developed lifelong friendships 
that mean EVERYTHING to me. I learned a sense of inde- 
pendence ('cause if you don't, you're history!). 

While I was here, I was Vice President of Van Meter House 
Council, played and taught volleyball, and partied like only 
UMass students know how (Oh, yea ... I studied a bit, too!). 

I've been truly enlightened, academically and emotionally. 
No one knows what the future holds for me. But, I feel ready 
for whatever comes. 

Sure there are plenty of complaints made about this place, 
as for any. 

But, I'll ALWAYS cherish the lessons I learned here, both 
in and out (especially out) of the classroom.

September 85 is when we all started in 

no books in our hands, but a smile above our chins 

we were freshmen then, we were all so young 

our destiny wasn't clear, we had only just begun 

we came from all over that faithful year 

to start what we had chosen, a college career 

the campus was big, the maps unclear 
the test had begun, would we last four years 

we rose early, that first September morn 

took our showers, and left the dorms 

walked across campus, with our shy eyes low 

we saw the ducks in the pond, so we stopped to say hello 

the ducks were friendly, but we had to get on our way 

we didn't want to be late, on the very first day 

the first semester ended, home for Christmas we went 

with one under our belt, we felt pretty content 

spring arrived quickly, then suddenly it was may 

we had lasted one year, we were on our way 

we came back as sophomores, our heads held high 

we were no longer scared, and no longer shy 

we worked hard that fall, winter slowly crept in 

the temperature started to fall, the winds settled in 

but the ducks stuck it out, frozen pond and all 

we stayed around too, we would not fall 

spring thaw came early, after a long semester break 

we were back again, for some more headaches 

but as that year ended, our majors were clear 

because we had to decide, before our junior year 

junior year came, so we moved out of the dorms 

the transfer students arrived, in very large swarms 

they came from all over, now they were here 

and we would all be gone, in two short years 

so we made new friends, and showed them around 

and when we turned of age, we hit the bars in town 

the summer was arriving, would we make it there 

and when we got back, it would be senior year 

then in 89, our senior year arrived 

there was joy in our hearts, but tears in our eyes 

we made it through the rain, those torrential downpours 

they were going to let us out, they were opening the doors 

so we skipped right along, with a gleam in our eyes 
we were the ones who made it, we're the ones that survived 

as that last spring arrived, so did the snow white swans 

and they paddled their way, across the campus pond 

but the ducks were still there, they were certainly tough 

and like all of us, they never gave up 

and as we look back now, and see what we had 

we were happy with the good times, but saddened by the bad 

we never meant to hurt anyone, but sometimes we did 

and when things got really bad, we often ran and hid 

but there's no more hiding, nowhere to run 

we must come out of our shells, and face the shining sun 

for the sun will shine, on graduation day 

the last fleeting Sunday, in the months of may 

but let's not forget, the struggles we had 
and remember the good times, as well as the bad 
we would like to say i love you, to all our friends 

you will be in our hearts, until the very end 

so as we leave with a tear, forming in our eyes 

we will have these memories, until the day we die 

by Dan Galvin 


1989 Senior Leadership Award 

The Senior Leadership Award was established to recognize the following graduating seniors at the University of Massachu- 
setts who demonstrated outstanding leadership and service to the University community during their study at the Amherst 
campus. Nominated by faculty and staff throughout campus, 127 seniors were selected to receive the 1989 Senior Leadership 

Award recipients distinguished themselves by making important contributions to their campus jobs, organizations, depart- 
ments of major study and the University community in general. In addition to active involvement on campus, each student also 
maintained a high level of academic achievement. The Office of Alumni Relations and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs are the proud sponsors of the first annual Senior Leadership Award.

Feature/ 27 3 



There are all types of people in this world, and I think I've 
encountered almost every type here at UMass. There is so much 
to experience on this campus. Do not limit yourself. "It is better 
to have experienced things in life than to have a 4.0." You are 
here only for four years, and you have to make the best of it. They 
say these are the best times of your life and that is so true!! Try 
something new each day. It may be walking to class by a different 
route to becoming an active member in any one of the many RSO 
groups on campus. If you work hard, sooner or later, it will pay 
off. Be yourself!! Follow your heart and your dreams. Believe in 
yourself!! Nothing can stop you if you are determined. 

Few Favorite Things: Waffle cone from the Blue Wall, grinders 
from Greenough Snack Bar, late night pizza, a drink at the 

Favorite Places to Hang-Out: Time-Out, Barsie's, Campus Cen- 
ter Concourse, Newman Center, steps of the Campus Center, 
Van Meter Hill, Whitmore Snack Bar, 15D Brandy wine.

Memories of: Friendships formed in Van Meter and the Greek 

Area, Gavel Club, rituals of Sigma Sigma Sigma, tail-gating, 

Greek Awards Banquet 1989, Spring Concerts, the laughter, 

crying, joys, and sorrows of life at UMass. 

Quotes to Live By: Shakespeare said "To be or not to be, that is 

the question." I say "To be! That is the answer. But not just to be. 

To be myself!" "I will not follow where the path may lead, but I 

will go where there is no path and I will leave a trail." 

What I Want to Be When I Grow-Up: ??? I plan on being young 


Greatest Honor: Greek Woman of the Year, 1989. 

"There are places I remember. All my life, though, some have 
changed. Some forever, not for better. Some have gone and some 
remain. All these places had their moments, with lovers and 
friends. I still can recall. Some are dead and some are living, in 
my life, I loved them all." - Beatles

I have no regrets about coming to UMass. For me, it was an 
experience that I can take into the future and use as a benefit 
to success. This was an experience that was loolced over and 
thought through. If I had not transferred to this school in 
1986, I probably would not have the same outlook about my 
life and its future. I am glad that I was a part of an experience 
that I had not been aware of before UMass. It not only 
widened my perspective, but strengthened my knowledge as to 
the things I had totally taken for granted. 

I made myself get the most out of the UMass experience by 
getting involved throughout my college career. I was Vice 
President of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, along with being 
treasurer of Pan-Hellenic Council, Interfraternity Council 
Representative, Counselor for Committee for Collegiate Edu- 
cation of Black, Minority Students Peer Counseling Program, 
Board Operator for Black Mass Communication Project in 
WMUA radio station, and much, much more. 

Also, I have learned that people are willing to give a helping 
hand. Coming from an environment of "Do is yourself," it is 
nice to have someone help with an accomplishment. I really 
appreciate the giving and receiving of help from someone who 
cares. With everyone helping each other, unity will become the 
strength of the community. 

My mother, father, and brother, Chris, have taught me to 
"achieve" and be the best I can be if not more. At UMass, I 
realized that if I can't be the best for myself, no one will do it 
for me. I thank God for letting me be a part of this life. I thank 
you all for letting me be a part of your life. Thank you Ma and 
Dad. I love you!!!

Hometown: Plainview, NY 
Major: Communications 

Extra-curricular activities: UPC Hospitality Coordinator, 
Promotion Manager; Senior Commencement Speaker 

Most Memorable Experience Working for UPC: During the 
Al Jarreau show they gave me lots of crap to do. I walked out 
of the dressing room, and he was there. He started talking to 
me, and it blew my mind. I thought, 'I have to keep going to 
these shows. I have to keep working here.' 
As Hospitality Coordinator: I delegate responsibility and do 
things myself. I'm in cahrge of setting up dressing rooms, 
feeding the bands and stage crew. For the spring concert we 
have a huge barbeque and feed 150 people and the bands. 
As Promotions Manager: I write press releases, get specific 
people on campus to know about the show, get radio cartridges 
made, give stations all of the information, deal with record 
company executives. 

Favorite Concerts: Miracle Legion, Living Colour. 
Future Plans: I plan on going to law school. I want to go iiito 
the music industry. I started learning more about entertain- 
ment law through UPC. I want to specialize in the music 
industry or animal rights. I regret not getting involved in the 
animal rights coalition, but I'm involved in my heart. 
Hobbies: Jogging, biking, going to movies, reading things be- 
sides school work (which gets me in trouble), music — even 
though it's more than a hobby, its my life.

I can't believe that 4 V2 years have come to an end. The time 
has passed so quickly, almost too quickly, and yet even with 
that fact I still feel as if a lifetime has passed by. Indeed a sort 
of lifetime has passed and we now will enter a new era of our 
lives. So much has been learned these past four years, most of 
which transpired outside of a formal classroom setting. 

Some people think of UMass as a protective bubble, I prefer 
the term "micro-cosmo society." There is a diversity here on 
all levels; racial, sexual, social class, political, etc . . . The 
climate at UMass encourages debate and challenges students 
to re-evaluate some of their values. Unfortunately only a small 
percentage of students have taken advantage of the non-aca- 
demic life available to them. 

To those seniors who took on the roles of student leaders, 
whether you were an R.A., Senator, Governor, House Council 
member, etc., I applaude you. You probably made a difference 
to a UMass student on some level. 

To those who remain, I encourage you to get involved, if not 
for the benefit of your fellow students, at least do it for the 
benefit of your own intellectual advancement. 

Favorite Class: Psychology 355 

Favorite Professors: Tie — W. Brian O'Connor and Prof. 

Soltysik (Physics) 

Activities (Past/Present): Resident Assistant, New Students 

Program, LBGA, and House Council. 

Future Plans: Hopefully to work as a chiropractor, specifically 

with Geriatics. 

Things That Motivate Me: Innovative speakers and writers. 

Favorite Pastimes: Hanging out in the Student,Union (fourth » Ph„to by Mary sbuuoni 

floor) and people watching on the Campus Center Concourse. \ ..m^miutm.. __^

Although she has never pledged a sorority or learned the 
Greek alphabet, Karen Wargo can indeed call herself a Greek. 

The 22-year-old communications major spent her senior 
year living, eating and breathing with the sisters of Sigma 
Delta Tau, not as a traditional sister, but as a house boarder. 

As she says, "When I returned last fall from an exchange in 
Scotland, I had been withdrawn from the University by mis- 
take. By the time I was reinstated, I had lost my on-campus 
housing, so when I saw the sorority's ad for a boarder, I went 
and checked it out." 

Paying nearly $1,600 a semester (only slightly more than 
students pay to live in the residence halls), Wargo rented a 
single room on the first floor of the sorority's house and had 
free access to all of the benefits of off-campus living, while 
steering clear of the responsibilities of being a full-fledged 

"Living as a boarder let me see first-hand what the Greek 
area is all about," she says. "But, I didn't have to participate in 
the things that the Greeks often plan." 

At the same time, Wargo says she developed a network of 
new friendships with people she would not have otherwise met. 

"It's almost like I was a sister there because I knew I had all 
these people I could have talked to, and that was nice to 

And besides, she says, "the meals at the house were much 
better than at the Dining Commons."

When I came into the University, I was the most socially 
oppressive person I knew. As time went by, I began to open my 
eyes and appreciate people for who they were and their differ- 
ent experiences. 

Becoming a resident assistant helped me to help others 
better understand the true meaning of celebrating diversity. 
My three semesters as an RA have been the best of my college 
career (thanks thre6 north) and have made the time here 
worthwhile. Besides my RA position, I also took a job with the 
New Student's Program. Becoming an NSP counselor was the 
best way that I knew how to pass on to new students what I 
learned about the University and the many opportunities 

I will truly miss my friends, fellow RA's and floormates.

You may not know him by name, but Larry Center is a 
familiar face to anyone who wallcs through the Campus Center 
between the hours of 8:00AM and 4:00PM. He has even met 
students who recognized him from UMass in the White Moun- 
tains of New Hampshire, stops 'on the Massachusetts Turn- 
pike, and Boston. 

Larry feels that his job as a custodian at UMass is one of the 
best in the area because of the benefits. One of those benefits 
wasn't discussed at his interview nine years ago, — meeting 
students all the time. 

"I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the kids. This would be 
the dullest job I ever had without them. I hate seeing the kids 
go," said Larry. 

They feel the same about him. A few students have even 
given him baseball caps as going away presents. 

To the graduating seniors of 1989 Larry leaves these words 
of wisdom: "Don't work when you're young and beautiful but 
when you're old and can't do anything."

PARTim WORO^ . . . 

n Imost two years ago, I was sitting 

^I in a classroom in Bartiett Hall 
#• waiting for a journalism class to 
begin, when this "little guy" came 
in, took his seat across from me, and 
couldn't stop talking about the Index 
Yearbook. I suppose I showed too much 
interest, because the very next day, he 
asked me to join the staff and fill the emp- 
ty sports editor position. 

I joined the staff, unaware that I was 
about to embark upon the adventure of a 
lifetime. It must have been, because six 
months later I found myself applying for 
the 1989 editor-in-chief position. 

I can honestly say that serving as editor 
of this yearbook has been the most reward- 
ing and fulfilling experience of my college 

I have seen a student organization, the 
oldest on campus, regroup and reflourish. 

Only a few years ago, the Index faced 
extinction. Student apathy and financial 
hardships were threatening the existence 
of the third oldest and continuously pub- 
lished yearbook in the country. 

But a new influx of student enthusiasm, 
both from Index staff members and from 
the senior class, has set a new track record 
for the Index. 

Because the Index is self-funded, the 
organization relies heavily on the senior 
class for survival. This last year has seen a 
rise in yearbook sales, and a rise in senior 
portrait sittings, which are both the two 
main sources of income for printing and 
operating costs. 

The book's aesthetics have also im- 
proved progressively in the past year, 
with the use of second color, additional 
four-color, and design, printing and pho- 
tography innovations. 

But the overall success and quality of 
this yearbook is the result of the dedica- 
tion, creativity and commitment of the In- 
dex staff members. This year's staff was 
comprised of over fifty volunteer students, 
an increase of thirty from last year. As 
these students learned, staffing a 360-page 
yearbook entails many more facets than 
taking pictures and designing pages. This 
staff worked together as a team, and I am 
proud of the results before you. 

To the staff, I thank each and everyone 
of you for your time, energy and hard- 
work, and for putting up with it (and me) 
through it all. I offer all of you only my 
gratitude and sincere best wishes. 

This was a special year for the Index 
yearbook, each of the following staff mem- 
bers made their own mark and contribu- 

John Doe (Little John): Thanks for be- 
ing that "little guy" who introduced me to 

the Index. When you applied for Manag- 
ing Editor, you told me that you would be 
by my side until the very end, and that you 
certainly were. Your wit, talent and dedi- 
cation were great assets to the 1989 Index. 
Thanks for everything, especially the 

John Mac (Big John): Thank you for 
being my friend, my mentor and a shoul- 
der to lean on throughout the year. Your 
confidence in me and the 1989 book was 
much appreciated. Good luck with your 
journalism career. 

Mary: Your senior section is beuer ttian 
fantastic! I am more than impressed and 
have every faith in you as you take over 
the Index. I wish you and the 1990 staff all 
the best of luck. 

Marguerite: What an unbelievable news 
section! You and Bob really pulled 
through and should be proud of the re- 
sults. By the way, you're the only person I 
know who has been kicked out of a toy 

Bob Surabian: All I can say is: "You 
crack me up!" For a freshman. You're 
okay! You made me laugh and helped me 
keep my sanity when I needed it most. I'll 
never forget the night before graduation. 
By the way, the news section is awesome. 
Thank you! 

Eric: We had our differences, but still 
managed to remain friends. You are a fan- 
tastic photographer and I wish you all the 
luck in your future. 

Jeff: You really came through for the ; 
Index, especially in the early stages of the i 
summer. I expect to see your name on a 
Pulitzer Prize someday. 

Marianne: I don't know how to thank 
you. Without you, we would not have met 
our final summer deadlines. Your service 
to the Index, especially in our final hectic 
weeks, was above and beyond the call of 

Ellen: Thank you for the roses (from the 
staff). I was deeply touched and impressed 
by your class act. You're assertiveness and 
keen business sense was also appreciatea. 

Karen: You are by far, the most moti- 
vated person I know. You were always 
willing to lend a helping hand, and that 
quality is admired. A good job as sales 

Katey: I cannot commend the sports 
section enough! You three really came to- 
gether, from the very beginning, and 
proved your selves. The sports section 
looks great! Thank you for the continued 

Lisa: Thank you for all of your hard 
work, especially in the summer. Your pho- 
tographs are fantastic and so are you. 

John Masuck: Even with all of your 

other commitments, you served the Index 
and served it well. Your sports copy is 
great, as is the rest of the section. Good 
luck in your future. 

Kris: The lifestyles section is superb! 
You put a lot of time and hard work into 
it, and it paid off. Thank you for tackling 
Day in the Life, the contest would not have 
worked if it had not been for you. 

Judy: I'm glad you joined the staff. You 
were always happy and smiling, and knew 
how to cheer up others. You're wonderful 
and so is the Lifestyles section. 

Dionne: What an artist! You have a lot 
of talent and really put it to work in the 
Fine Arts section. Thank you. By the way, 
thanks for showing me around New York. 

Amy: Thank you for your dedication. I 
know how hard it is to join a new staff, and 
you really made the most of it. Thank you 
for a beautiful Fine Arts section. 

Marty: You never gave up, despite all 
the odds that came up for the organiza- 
tions section. Your layouts are superb, as 
is your spirit and willingness to serve the 

Linda: Thank you for all of your hard 
work. I realize all the difficulties the orga- 
nizations editors faced, yet you stuck with 
it and did a great job. 

Lora: You really came through for us 
this summer. Without you, we would not 
have been able to meet our final deadline. 
All of your late nights in the office paid off 
for the organizations section. Thank you. 

Kim: You amaze me. Two nights and 
your section is done . . . and perfect. Thank 
you for coming through for us. Good luck 
to you. 

Amy and Beth, my sisters of mercy: 
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You 
both came onto the staff late and did abso- 
lutely wonderful jobs with the sales and 
marketing work. You certainly saved me a 
lot of work and made the final weeks of the 
semester a lot more bearable. 

Trebor: What a staff supporter you 
turned out to be! Thank you for staffing 
the senior portrait table as well as you did. 
You were a lot of fun to have on staff. 

Brenda: I really respect you, because 
you never gave up. You were always will- 
ing to lend a helping hand to anybody, and 
that is appreciated. 

Bruce: If I ever need a paramedic, I 
know who to call. Thanks for helping out 
the photo staff as well as you did. Good 
luck with your medical career. 

Paul: I always knew I could count on 
you . . . and your luck!! Your photographs 
are beautiful. Thank you. 

Susan S: Thank you for keeping all of 
your office hours, and for your willingness 
to help where help was needed.

busy this year, you always made time for 
the Index. I hope all of your dreams come 

Kathy: Despite all of the problems with 

the academics section, you gave it a great 
try and did some good leg-work. Good 
luck to you and your future. 

Cheryl: You sure have a lot of spunk. 
Despite other commitments in your life,

Thank you. Thank you, Thank you. I love

so much about the state of the Index. 
Thank you for being the best program ad- 

visor. I will miss you and the Student Ac- 
tivities Office. 

Bob Sasena: What a rep! I cannot say 
enough about you. You were always there 
for me and the Index staff, day or night. I 
can honestly say that the 1989 Index staff 
had the very best sales representative that 
any company could offer. I will miss you 
alot (but not your laugh)! My very best 
wishes to you next summer! 

Dario: And last but not least, our fan- 
tastic faculty advisor. You taught me and 
the staff to keep the faith and were always 
there when I needed you, for everything. 
Thank you for your help, ideas, and ad- 
vice. I love you!

Those who entered 
the University as 
shy and hopeful 
freshmen in the fall 
of 1985 emerged as trium- 
phant graduates on May 
28th, as the 19th Com- 
mencement ceremony took 
place at McGuirk Stadium. 
Who could believe that 
the years would pass so 
quickly, that those who 
seemed only yesterday to be 
sweating through yet anoth- 
er composition for Fresh- 
man English would sudden- 
ly find themselves robed in 
solemn black, listening in- 
tently to speakers such as 
Chancellor Joseph Duffey, 
who urged the seniors to be- 
come, "Thoughtful and ac-

tive citizens, and to choose careers on the basis 
of what you can give to others." 

Even unseasonably chilly winds could not 
quell the enthusiasm which abounded at the 
stadium. Bouts of cheering and an impromptu 
performance of the wave, illustrated the good 
cheer with which seniors awaited the moment 
when they would at last receive their hard- 
earned diplomas. 

Several guest speakers rose before the crowd 
of 3,227 seniors and their loved ones in order to 
offer both congratulations and advice for the 
rapidly approaching future. Pulitzer Prize- 
winning author Tracey Kidder spoke on the 
necessity of increasing funding for education, a 
timely topic in light of recent state budget cuts 
which may jeapordize the quality of education 
at the University in the future. "Teaching mat-
