Missing You 

Does it seem like forever ben\een issues of lUP Magazine? Did 
the wait for the Summer-Fall issue seem particularly interminable':: 
It was interminable at our end. too. 

ust as the Summer-Fall issue was ready 
to go on press, in mid-July, production 
abruptly ceased due to the absence of a 
state budget. When it finally resumed, 
there were problems with the printer, and 
a lot of copies had to be reprinted. 

As they say on TV, it was technical dif- 
ficulty beyond our control. We're anxious 
to be back on schedule and to bring your lUP Magazine 
to you at regular intervals, as in the past. Meanwhile, 
thank you to the readers who called and wrote and 
interrogated phonathon callers as to the whereabouts of 
the magazine. It"s nice to be missed. 

Partly in response to the budget difficulties, the mag- 
azine recently instituted a voluntary subscription pro- 
gram. Please use the All-Purpose Form in the Lifestyles 
section if you're impressed with the magazine and 
would like to help maintain its quality. 

Sometimes, though, there are those you just can't 
impress, no matter what. Consider the case of Joe 
Mauro '66, the bungee-jumping junior high principal 
whose exploits are recounted in the Lifestyles section 
of this issue. Hearken to the poignant words of Joe's 
mother, Anna Mauro, to the TV reporter who covered 
Joe's heroic jump: "I can't believe I raised him for 
forty-eight years to be stupid. "

When I came to lUP in 1971, students used calculators carved

Today's students use a calculator built upon a tiny 
microcircuit powered by the sun. Gazing upon 
the slide rule, you might well wonder how so 
much progress could have been made with such a 
primitive wooden tool. Change in the sciences has been 
dramatic, and it is carrying us all into an uncertain but 
exciting future. 

John Michaelson '11 is a device engineering manager 
for Northern Telecom in California. His work involves 
the development of the technology needed for hand-held 
communicators like those you've seen on "Star Trek." 
With such a communicator, you will be able to call any- 
one in the world, even if the person you are calling is in 
the middle of the Gobi Desert. 

Much of what will happen in science in the future is 
entangled with technology, especially the computer. 
While passing through the library stacks, visiting with 
old friends of twenty years, I came upon a copy of 
Physics Today from 1965. Boldly stamped across the 
cover was "ISC." Indiana State College, and I wondered 
what might be said in an issue from that year. 

I came across an article titled "The Computer and 
^ou." which discussed the relatively new digital com- 
puters: "^e latest trick" was the article's rather ungra- 
cious description. A high-energy physicist was quoted: 
"The most interesting thing about the computer revolu- 
tion is how little influence they have had. not how 
much. I cannot think of any important advance in 
science due to computers." 

Never speak too soon, my friends. You may be 

What will the computers of the future be? Besides 
being faster, scientists want computers to be able to 
"see" — to identify objects. Already, computers are able 
to read a simple bar code in a grocery store, but to be 
able to identify objects from only a fragment of the 
object's image is truly a challenge. It will force us to 
understand how we see. how our minds work to identify 
an object so quickly with so little information. 

The new computers of this decade will permit a hun- 
dred billion operations a second, and all the sciences 
will explode with discoveries, opening new realms 
beyond our imagination. Today's fantasy will be tomor- 
row's technology. 

Dr. Richard McMaster '72 is the project manager for 
IBM's Advanced Work Station Division. His work will 
allow scientists to use complex models to drill effi- 
ciently for oil and natural gas and to modify polymer 
chains for more durable materials. 

As vice president of Graftek. Dr. Lee Cole "75 will 
touch the future through the development of systems to 
optimize the design of machines that will be lighter, 
stronger, faster, less expensive, and manufactured more 

Someday, there will be transcontinental phones that 
will make it possible for a person to speak English at 
one end and have words come out in Japanese at the 
other end. And there will be books that contain an audio 
portion for each page. And fast new semiconductor 
materials such as Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), which is 
studied by the members of my department. 

The science fiction of 
"space- warp" may not be 

pure fantasy, and 
perhaps we will one day 

step from continent to 

continent as easily as we 

step from room to room 


GaAs offers the hope of bringing together electrical 
and optical functions on a single microchip to speed 
even more the transmission of information. Jim Stobie. 
a member of the Class of 197.3 and a research engineer 
for LORAL, Inc., is one of the researchers who helped 
develop the infrared technology that expanded man's 
sense of sight and enabled our troops to seize the night 
in Operation Desert Storm. 

We will someday gain the ability to control our envi- 
ronment. Dr. Haris Riris '84 came to lUP from Cyprus, 
Haris worked in my low temperature laboratory and 
found that "Hard work is just as important as intelli- 
gence in the pursuit of a career in physics." Today, 
Haris works at Stanford Research Institute on technolo- 
gies that will be used in tomorrow's studies of the envi- 
ronment, medical diagnostics, and communications. 

Dr. Barbara Eckstein '79 studies the movements of 
our oceans and their influence on humankind. She 
enjoys forming the pieces of the scientific puzzle into an 
intelligible whole that no one else has ever seen. 

Beneath the oceans is the domain in which Dr. Rose- 
mary Gerald Pacalo 'XI works. Her research at the State 
University of New York at Stony Brook probes the 
materials that make up the earth's lower mantle. She 
says she wants to "make an impact on future scien- 
tists by showing students that women are as capable 
as men in performing the rigorous mental tasks required 
of a scientist, as well as getting their hands dirty in the

The same kind of CD disks that are used to play 
music can store a quarter of a million typewritten pages. 
Soon they will be connected to every personal com- 
puter, and an entire subject area, text and pictures, still 
and moving, will be available on your computer monitor 
at the tap of a key. Dr. Keith Jamison "78 is a senior sci-

On July 20, 1969, a man walked on the moon. We 
had stepped outward from our planet into that expansive 
universe for the first time. Charles Semmel "74 is a 
senior engineer for Sverdrup, testing the materials that 
will be used in Space Station Freedom and the Moon/ 
Mars Initiative. Will men and women go outward into 
the unknown even further? Will they travel through 
distant space? 

We appear to be limited in the speed at which we 
may travel, the speed of light being the speed limit of 
the universe. That could mean it would take thousands 
of years to reach distant galaxies. But imagine for a 
moment that we lived in a fiat, two-dimensional space 
time, where it would take a certain time to travel across 
a sheet of paper from edge to edge. Suppose that with 

the ability to control gravity, we could create a tra- 
versable wormhole in space, a shortcut created by warp- 
ing space in such a manner as to bring the two edges of 
the paper together. It would lake but the blink of an eye 
to travel from edge to edge through the wormhole. 

The science fiction of "space-warp" may not be pure 
fantasy, and perhaps we will one day step from conti- 
nent to continent as easily as we step from room to 
room today. Wormholes as proposed by John Wheeler 
of Princeton are not ruled out by any current physical 
theories, but they are utterly beyond our technological 
capabilities — todayl Yet, they may be accomplished 
with imagination and persistence. 

And what of the most exciting adventure of all, 
fraught with expectation and fear — SETI, the search 
for extraterrestrial intelligence. Based on our current 
understanding of the universe, we are presently search- 
ing the skies for sources of microwaves in projects such 
as META. Someday, perhaps, we will filter from the 
hiss of space the digital signal that spells out a physical 

And if we do hear from another civilization that cir- 
cles a star in some faraway galaxy, how will we re- 
spond? The consequence of our response could be far 
more important than the discovery of other civilizations. 
Buckminster Fuller wrote the following about this topic: 
"Sometimes 1 think we're alone. Sometimes I think 
we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering." 

Modem science began just two hundred years ago, 
and we are but beginning our adventure in science and 
discovery. Carl Sagan tells us that "Somewhere there is 
something incredible waiting to be known." Timid minds 
will fail to imagine all that can be. It has been said that 
someday, perhaps, great space ships will fly across the 
universe like the caravels of old. spreading their gos- 
samer sails to the solar wind — sailing to sunbeams. 

If some of what I describe appears to be beyond the 
realm of possibility, let me quote the following: 

Instruments may be made by which the largest ships, 
with only one man guiding them, will he carried with 
greater velocity than If they were full of sailors. Chari- 
ots may be constructed that will move with Incredible 
rapidity without the help of animals. Instruments of fly- 
ing may he formed in which a man. sitting at his ease 
and meditating In any subject, may heat the air with his 
artificial wings after the manner of birds . . . as also 
machines which will enable men to walk at the bottom 
of the seas ... 

This passage was penned by a monk in the thirteenth 
century and is a triumph of imagination over the known 
facts of that time. Surely, knowing what we have al- 
ready achieved, we are better prepared and more open to 
the possible wonders of the future. Speculation is great 
fun, and one can weave tenuous fabrics. Yet, in our his- 
tory no one has yet succeeded in overestimating the 
impact of science on society. 

Tim Schatzer '87 works for Westinghouse at the 
Savannah River Nuclear Weapons Complex, where he 
corrects the environmental legacies of the past and 
through new technologies helps to insure our environ- 
mental future. Tim writes: "As our work at the Savan-

It has been great fun to be part of this adventure. It 
has been written thai those of us who are scientists are 
but learned children — in awe of nature, wide-eyed and 
wondrous of all about us. All children are such and out- 
grow it. Scientists are fortunate that they can stay that 
way their entire lives. 

With all the change that has overtaken science in the 
last twenty-five years, the really important things have 
never changed: the excitement of an unexpected discov- 
ery, the joy of a student who makes an intellectual leap 
beyond the work of his professor. 

This university is richer for having had with us gradu- 
ates like those I have mentioned, for having had them 
share their work and hopes with us all. The faculty did 
not teach these men and women what they would do in 
the future; the faculty simply taught them to face the 
future with hope, to recogni/e truth, to seek out new 
knowledge, and to have an abiding concern and love for 
all humankind. ~1^

Fuget, who spent nearly twenty years as a faculty 
member and administrator at lUP before assum- 
ing a high-ranking post in Harrisburg in 1988, 
returned as interim president when John Welty 
departed for Fresno, California. Welty went to a state 
where publicly funded institutions have a goodly share 
of budget problems. Fuget can identify with that. 

But budget is only one of the issues Fuget faces dur- 
ing the several months of his interim presidency. (He 
has already indicated his lack of interest in the job on a 
permanent basis.) I UP Magazine asked him about fi- 
nances and other topics in the following exchange. 

{lUP Magazine) What do you see as the single biggest chai- 
lenge facing lUP In the next two years? 

(Fuget) I am sorry to say that fiscal issues must 
occupy a considerable amount of the time of the indi- 
i/iduai serving as president of lUP. The revenue short- 
fall in the commonwealth in 1990-91 and the resulting 
reduction in appropriations to all higher education insti- 
tutions will have a lingering impact on our budget pro- 
jections for the next two years. This is in spite of the 
fact that Pennsylvania has not undergone the sharp 
reductions in funding that many of our neighboring 
states have experienced. 

The anticipated increases caused by inflation, negoti- 
ated collective bargaining agreements, increased expen- 
ditures associated with modem technology, and the need 

to meet the educational requirements of an expanding 
student body will place a serious strain on our resources. 
This, coupled with a desire to maintain access by con- 
trolling tuition increases, will become the challenge of 
the next several years. 

UUP Magazine) What steps are being taken or will be taken to 
meet this challenge? 

(Fuget) Dr. Welty established a twenty-six-member 
Commission on Cost Reduction Alternatives in the 
spring of 1991 in an effort to plan for the long-term 
financial stability of lUP. It was his belief, and I agree, 
that we could not meet the needs of providing a high- 
quality education by continuing a series of across-the- 
board reductions. 

The charge given to the commission was to identify 
possible areas in the university which could be reduced, 
modified, or eliminated in order to provide additional 
funds to support critical needs. The commission met 
throughout the spring and summer and in the fall com- 
pleted a series of subcommittee reports outlining possi- 
ble areas for consideration of cost reductions or other 

(/W Magazine) What recommendations were made by the 
Commission on Cost Reduction Alternatives? 

(Fuget) The commission initially identified 152 items 
for consideration as possible cost reduction strategies.

The decision to ban the use of 
alcohol at tailgating events on 
the lUP campus was not made 
lightly and comes as a result ot 
several incidents in each ol the 
past few years that have been 
caused by alcohol-related 
behavior at tailgating events. 

Those items were grouped and assigned to a series of 
subcommittees for further review and evaluation. Based 
on the review of the subcommittees and discussion of 
the issues by the entire commission, a final report was 
prepared by each subcommittee outlining the issues and 
making a series of recommendations for possible imple- 

I reviewed the various subcommittee reports and 
developed a short list of items for further discussion by 
all members of the university community. Because of 
your magazine's deadlines, the outcome of this discus- 
sion and action by the Council of Trustees will have to 
be reported in a subsequent issue. 

[lUP Magazine) What are the issues you must deal with that 
evoke controversy, I.e., tailgating? 

(Fuget) There are a surprising number of issues and 
questions that were on campus when I arrived last July. 
In some cases, the issues were new, such as the concern 
over program modifications that might be required as a 
result of the budget shortfall. Others were of a continu- 
ing nature and involved recommendations presented by 
the University Senate that were referred to special ad 
hoc committees for additional consideration. These in- 
cluded the "nickname" issue. 

The year-long review of the number of intercollegiate 
athletic teams and the desire to reduce expenditures in 
this area had resulted in the decision to eliminate four 
athletic teams at the conclusion of the 1991-92 season. 
This decision, along with the concern over the future of 
the University School as a result of cost reduction alter- 
natives discussions and my decision to ban alcohol at

university-sponsored tailgating have generated consider- 
able heat, 1 believe that these issues, along with con- 
cerns that will surface in response to suggested cost 
reduction alternatives, represent the major items that 
might be classified as controversial. 

The decision to ban the use of alcohol at tailgating 
events on the lUP campus was not made lightly and 
comes as a result of several incidents in each of the past 
few years that have been caused by alcohol-related 
behavior at tailgating events. 

There were three major concerns that led to the deci- 
sion: first, tailgating activities, especially at Home- 
coming, attracted literally thousands of underage indi- 
viduals to the tailgating area in the R & P lot. Those 
who had access to alcohol were in violation of Pennsyl- 
vania's drinking laws, and this activity took place on 
state property. 

Second, there were remarkable and disturbing in- 
creases in the number of incidents of vandalism on cam- 
pus following tailgating events at which alcohol was 
served. Third, Pennsylvania is taking enormous steps to 
discourage and eliminate substance abuse in the state, 
and to permit this to occur on campus seems a contra- 
diction for an educational institution. Therefore, lUP 
has joined all other State System universities in banning 
alcohol at tailgating activities. 

The university continues to actively encourage 
alumni to return to campus for tailgating events and 
Homecoming activi'ties. We know that good fun and 
fellowship can occur without alcohol, and we believe 
that this decision is in the best interest of the university 
community, ~1^

In Memoriam 

(Ediloi'.s now: Terry Murphy, 
who was featured in the article 
"Never Say Never" in the 
Sprinfi. 1991 . issue of lUP Mag- 
azine, died July 30. 1991 . as a 
result of heart problems. The 
following was written hy lUP 
faculty member Pat Heilman. 
who also wrote the stoiy in last 
spriiiii's issue.) 

Sometimes, we are given the 
opportunity to let people 
know how they have 
affected our lives before it is too 
late — before a death leaves us 
listing the "should have saids" 
or the "did she knows how much 
I admired her. how her life 
inspired me. etc." 

I had that rare opportunity last 
year when Terry was a big part 
of the article that I wrote. In the 
writing of that article. I had the 
chance to relive my experiences 
with Terry Murphy, both as her 
friend and as her former employ- 
er, through the two interviews I 
conducted with her. Her unfail- 
ing optimism, her constant goal 
setting, and her future plans re- 
minded me of what I admired in 
her and why I had chosen her as 
one of the subjects of that story: 
she never gave up. No matter 
what life handed her, she made 
something good out of it. And 
did it with a smile. 

Since publication of that story, 
I have encountered two women 
who have chosen to return to 
school. They cited Terry's story 
and those of the other inter- 
viewees as instrumental in their 
decision. One said she thought 
her life was loo difficult to at- 
tempt a major project, such as 
starting college at forty. Terry's 
life story convinced her to give 
it a shot. Terry would have 
been proud. 

Terry died this past July. Her 
body finally succumbed to the 


long years of transplant inainte- 
nance and related health prob- 
lems. Her body died; her spirit 
lives in each person touched and 
motivated by her story. I can 
never forget her. 

I thank her for the opportunity 
of knowing her and for allowing 
me to tell her story.

Tough Choices 

Faced with the unenviable 
task of reducing its budget. 
lUP decided last summer to 
discontinue four varsity sports 
beginning with the 1992-93 aca- 
demic year. They are men's soc- 
cer and men's tennis, women's 
field hockey, and gymnastics. 
The action was in the spirit of a 
campuswide cost reduction effort 
brought about by Pennsylvania's 
fiscal problems. 

"These decisions came after a 
great deal of deliberation, a com- 
prehensive evaluation of our to- 
tal athletic program, and an as- 
sessment of national trends." said 
Athletic Director Frank Cignetti. 

"While we regret the need to 
reduce the number of intercolle- 
giate sports that are offered to 
lUP students, it has become ob- 
vious that all reductions are 
necessary at this time." 

The university will reduce its 
athletic department budget by 
about $350,000 over the next few 
years. The reduction leaves lUP 
with fourteen intercollegiate

Fahuious Foothall 

V V^^et It Done in '91" was 
iBthe theme of the lUP 
%»i football team. By most 
estimates, the Indians fulfilled 
that goal. 

The 1991 Indians were ranked 
first in the country for most of 
the season. They finished the 
year 12-1 and made their fifth 
consecutive trip to the NCAA 
playoffs and their third straight 
trip to the Final Four. 

For the fourth time in five sea- 
sons. lUP won the Lambert/Mea- 
dowlands Cup and was named 
the ECAC Division II Team of 
the Year. On an individual note, 
quarterback Tony Aliucci was 
one of three finalists for the Har- 
lon Hill Trophy, the award that 
goes to the Division II national 
Player of the Year. 

About the only sour note con- 
cerned the way the season ended. 
The Indians' season came to a 
close at Jacksonville State (Ala.) 
in the national semifinals, where 
the Gamecocks stunned the Indi- 
ans 27-20. Both lUP and Jack- 
sonville went into the game un- 
defeated. lUP was ranked number 
one. and Jacksonville was num- 
ber two.

by S. Trevor Hadley '37 

The Retired Faculty Spotlight

Better known as "Mac," he 
was bom In Swissvale, Pa. After 
graduating from LIgonler High 
School. Mac moved on to Edin- 
boro. where he earned a B.S. 
degree in Art Education. 

Mac gives credit for his career 
choice to Elizabeth Patton, who. 
as a young woman, became the 
first an teacher in the Ligonier 

Mac spent two years as an art 
teacher In the South Greensburg 
public schools, three years at the 
Milton Hershey School in Her- 
shey, and a year In the Hannsburg 
public schools. His art career was 
Interrupted by five years" service 
in the armed forces during World 
War II. There, he attended the 
Air Force Officers' Candidate 
School and the Air Service Com- 
mand School. His service time 
Included a stint as an instructor 
in the Air Service Command 
School and three years with an 
Air Force Psychological Re- 
search Unit. 

Eventually, Mac earned his 
M.A. degree at the University of 
Pittsburgh and his D.Ed, degree 
in Art Education at Penn State. 
He also studied at Alfred Univer- 
sity and taught three summers at 
Plymouth (N.H.) State College. 

After discharge from the 
armed forces, Mac spent nine 
years as a faculty member at 
Slippery Rock before moving on 
to Indiana, where he spent eigh- 
teen years until his retirement In 
1974. At Indiana, Mac taught a 
wide variety of courses in art 
education, directed graduate re- 
search in art, and served as chair- 
man of the art department for 
ten years. 

During this period, Mac saw 
Indiana's art department grow 
from 1 50 students and seven 
faculty members to a department 
of 392 students and twenty-two 
staff members. He was instru-

struction of the $2.5-million fine 
arts building, Sprowls Hall. (The 
building's auditorium is named 
in his honor.) 

During his professional career, 
Mac was honored with several 
awards which included a Citation 
for Meritorious Service to Art 
Education by the Pennsylvania 
Art Education Association and 
was later named a fellow by the 
same organization. In 1991, Mac 
was honored when Edinboro 
University named him recipient 
of the Art Achievement Award 
for outstanding contributions to 
the field of art education. 

Mac married Claire Cressman, 
who graduated from lUP In 
1938. Mac and Claire have two 
children, Karen McVitty Schaef- 
fer, who is a teacher in the Sus- 
quehanna Township Schools,

Instruction. Mac also served two 
terms as president of the Penn- 
sylvania Art Education Associa- 
tion. For sixteen years, he was a 
trustee and elder at Calvary Pres- 
byterian Church in Indiana. 

Mac says that his special 
memories of Indiana include "the 
growth of the art department of 

lUP and the cooperation of the 
administration and staff in the 
building of Sprowls Hall. The 
friendships formed at Indiana 
were warm and forever lasting." 

After Claire retired as a teach- 
er in the Indiana public schools, 
Mac and his family moved to 24 
Pine Tree Drive, Mechanicsburg, 
PA 17055. Since retirement, Mac 
and Claire have been actively 
engaged in their local Presbyte- 
rian Church activities and with 
Meals on Wheels. Mac does 
weaving and frequently presents 
slide shows on art topics for local 
school groups. Both McVittys 
belong to a travel group known 
as the Steeple People, which tra- 
vels to historic and scenic sites in 
Central Pennsylvania. 

Mac would enjoy hearing

that his students were good at selling 
magazine subscriptions (the only 
fundraiser the school conducts). He 
was sure, though, that they couldn't 
top I990's sales of $35,000 by nearly 
thirty percent. In fact, if they were to 
sell as much as $45,000 in subscrip- 
tions, he said he. personally, would 
hungee jump. Some erstwhile sales- 
persons may not have known the 
meaning of bungee jumping (falling 
from a great height while attached to 
an elasticized cable), but for those 
who did. the thought of the princi- 
pal's flinging himself into thin air 
was irresistible. Naturally, the 
unthinkable occurred: sales passed 
the $45,000 mark. Mauro had no 
choice but to jump. On a cloudy day 
last fall at Pittsburgh's Station 
Square, he did. Below top: Belted 
and buckled. Maura's ready to 
ascend on the crane platform that 
will lift him 150 feet ta his fate. 
Below bottom: Mauro free-falls far 
fifty feet and then decelerates as the 
bungee catches and stretches.

Looking for fellow alumni used to be difficult. But with the new 1992 Alumni Directory, 
finding lost classmates is a breeze! Your alma mater, lUP, and the directory publishing 
specialists, Publishing Concepts, Inc., have put their heads together to publish a 
large-format alumni guide. 

• Complete alumni listings by name, class year and city/state/country 

• Home and business addresses and phone numbers 

• Current and emeritus faculty listings 

• Information on how to use your alumni association for career 
development, regional activities, continuing education, 
social events and more 

To order: Watch your mail for the 1992 Alumni Questionnaire, due out in March. Your 
order form is included — this will be your only opportunity to purchase a directory. 
. y The 1992 Alumni Directory is available onlv to lUP alumni.

\AMES Pnijeci AIDS Memorial 
Quill was displayed nii campus in 
November. The quilt, which almost 
constantly travels across the country 
to remind the public of the disease's 
devastation, put to work hundreds 
of campus and community volun- 
teers, who raised money and helped 
manage the daily activities of the 
display. Nearly five thousand people 
visited the quilt, which included 
several squares dedicated to Western 
Pennsylvania residents who have 
died of AIDS.

Angelo. a nineteen-year-old Indiana 
Senior High student who has Down

Joe Angelo '56. His interest in foot-

Good thing Mel Hankinson developed that peculiar habit long ago. the one most of us 
avoid like a snarling Doherman: rising each day at 4 a.m. For the 1965 lUP graduate, 
it's more than a habit: it's a necessity.

Hankinson tared so well on the 
"Quantum Leap" project that 
he was asked by Universal to 
head a newly lormed sports 
division within its casting 

hen your life is as hec- 
tic as Hankinson's — 
coaching the Master's 
College basketball team 
in Southern California 
and sei^'ing as the 
school's athletic direc- 
tor, writing, lecturing, 
acting, giving motivational speeches, filming instruc- 
tional videos, taking part in community and church 
activities, and traveling the globe like some modem-day 
Marco Polo — not even a sixteen-hour day is long 

And so the alarm sounds well before dawn every day 
in the Hankinson household, where this nineties Renais- 
sance man begins a routine that would leave most mor- 
tals as limp as overcooked spaghetti by midday. 

"I think some people have an unusual capacity for 
work. Mel happens to be one of them." said University 
of Southern California basketball coach George Ravel- 
ing, who hired Hankinson as an assistant during his 
tenure at Iowa and remains a close friend. 

It was at lUP that the native of Chambersville. a ham- 
let six miles north of Indiana, first reaped the benefits of 
awakening before the birds. Hankinson paid his way 
through school by sweeping floors at the Penn Traffic 
department store, arriving before daybreak so he could 
finish in time for his first morning class. 

A quarter-century later, he's still rising early. And 
once his day begins. Hankinson resembles the Energizer 
bunny: he keeps going and going and going. He writes, 
he coaches, he lectures; he's even found time to make a 
"leap" into show business. 

Hankinson now serves as a consultant to several 
major movie studios — Universal. Paramount, and Dis- 
ney — providing sports-related assistance. His credits 
include television shows such as NBC's "Quantum 
Leap" and "Matlock" and several Fox network pro- 
grams. He's also involved in a planned $6-million bas- 
ketball movie — a present-day version of Hoosiers — that 
will star the eminently bankable Kevin Costner. 

Hankinson fared so well on the "Quantum Leap" pro- 
ject that he was asked by Universal to head a newly 
formed sports division within its casting department. 
His task involves either locating actors to fill a specific 
request or providing coaches who can teach actors the 
finer points of, say. throwing a football. 

"They'll call, and it'll go something like this: 'We 
need thirteen white basketball players in the 1950s, with 
flat-top haircuts,' " said Hankinson. "We also supply 
technical advisers for any sport. We'll give special in- 
struction to actors who. maybe, need to learn how to 
pole vault. Or they'll send four actors out to the school. 
and 1 might work with them for two days on basket- 
ball skills." 

Which is how Hankinson. whose wife. Joan Cherry 
Hankinson. also graduated from lUP, launched his own 
"acting career." The producers of "Quantum Leap" cast 
him in the role of — what else? — a basketball coach in 
an episode last season. 

"They asked me to serve as a basketball consultant. 
The show went so well they gave me a bit part." Hank- 
inson said. 

He emphasizes the word "bit." Only those with the 
eyes of an eagle could have spotted Hankinson. so fleet- 
ing was his appearance on the screen. 

"You had to use a VCR and put it on slow to see me." 
he quipped. 'I know Jimmy Stewart is not threatened by 
my presence." 

Hankinson. who has authored several books on bas- 
ketball teaching and strategy, was originally hired to 
give .series star Scott Bakula some shooting tips for the 
episode. Few technical consultants are more qualified 
for that sort of instruction. As a high school senior in 
1961. Hankinson scored 45 points in less than three 
quarters of playing time to lead Marion Center past 
Cresson in the District 6 championship game. 

As a college senior, he exploded again. Hankinson 
scored 59 points in a win over Parsons College (Iowa) at 
lUP's compact Waller Gym. a school and Pennsylvania

"I feel very humble about the whole thing. " Hankin- 
son said. "Something like that cannot be done by your- 
self. That might sound a little corny, but it's very true." 

Fact is. Hankinson might have scored even more 
points that night had he not been so darned unselfish. 

"He got embarrassed at the end because the guys 
wanted to feed him. and he didn't want them to." said 
lUP Associate Athletic Director Herm Sledzik. who 
coached Hankinson. "He just had a great night. Every- 
thing he shot went in. It didn't matter who guarded him. 
The Parsons sports information director said that was 
the greatest shooting performance he'd ever seen."

Little did Hankinson realize back then that the game 
he pla>ed so well would lead him in so many directions. 
His career goals were modest. 

■".At that time. I would have been just thankful enough 
to be a high school coach in the Indiana County area." 
he said. "I really had no idea that basketball would let 
me see the world." 

Actually, it's Hankinson's te.xtbooks and videos that 
have enabled him to pile up frequent flyer miles. That 
his books are utilized in 28.000 high schools and 2,500 
universities in North America — that legendary North 
Carolina coach Dean Smith has a copy of Progressions 
for Teaching Baskelhall in his personal library — is 
impressive enough. That the materials are used in at 
least thirty foreign countries shows that Hankinson has 
universal appeal. Consequently, he's conducted clinics, 
given lectures, and coached all-star teams throughout 
Europe. Asia, and South America. This summer, he 
plans to travel to Egypt and Sudan, adding Africa to his 
list of continents explored. So how many nations has he 
visited, all told? 

"It's like Bunker Hunt always said, Tf you know how 
much monpy you have, you really don't have very 
much.' I suppose that applies." Hankinson said. "I've 
been invited to speak in more countries than I can possi- 
bly get to." 

His renown abroad rivals that of many big-time 
coaches. Hankinson chuckles as he relates the story of a 
1989 visit to Germany for a basketball tournament, 
when coaches he had met several years earlier on a tour 
of the Soviet Union swirled around him and practically 
ignored his companion, UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian. 

"Mel never has been a head coach at a marquee 
school," Raveling said. "And yet he's probably as well 
known around the country — and maybe around the 
world — as anybody. " 

Hankinson has profited from his extensive travels. 
possibly because he took to heart the words of a former 
UCLA basketball coach, an icon of sorts in the coaching 

"The great advantage of going all over the world — 
and even all over the United States — is you find out that 
people are the same everywhere," he said. "There are 
cultural differences, but they have the same wants and 
needs that we do. John Wooden said this to me one 
time: "Whether you're accepted or not depends on what 
you take to the people.' It's a very simple principle that 
has applied as far as coaching." 

Hankinson's success as a college coach began at Slip- 
pery Rock, where in 197.^ he guided a group of under- 
sized overachievcrs to a 23-7 record and the NAIA 
Tournament semifinals. He moved on to Roanoke Col- 
lege (Va.), turned Delta State (Miss.) from an 8-19 team 
into a 19-7 club, assisted Raveling at Iowa, spent three 
seasons at Samford (Ala.) and then accepted his biggest 
challenge: transforming the Master's College, an NAIA 
school of H5() students, into a winner. 

It seemed the program needed a miracle worker more 
than a coach. The Mustangs finished .'i-24 in Hankin- 
son's first season, but by last year they set a .school 

record for wins (22) and earned runner-up honors at the 
National Christian College As.sociation tourney. Hank- 
inson also picked up his three hundredth career victory, 
although his players celebrated the milestone more than 
he did. Hankinson has never made much of a fuss over 
such achievements. 

"I remember Coach Sledzik saying that coaching is 
not winning — it's about the interpersonal relationships 
and deep friendships that you cultivate, all tied together 
by a silly little basketball." he said. "Now I see Hemi's 
great wisdom." 

And now Hankinson sees the great wisdom of his 
grandfather. Walter, who taught him lessons that are 
still bearing fruit decades later. 

■"He was a coal miner all his life — went into the 
mines when he was twelve years old— and he wanted 
me to learn how to work hard," Hankinson said. "So he 
would have me working at my Uncle Gene's truck farm, 
or he'd have me digging out a cellar or spading a gar- 
den. And I'm thankful for all that, I think that 
did establish the work habits that I had as a player and 
now have as a writer and coach." 

Cra/y work habits, some might suggest. Maybe so, 
but Mel Hankinson would be lost without his 4 a.m. 
wake-up call. For, given his hectic schedule, a sixteen- 
hourday simply isn't long enough. "^
