To most students, the name "Monticola" means nothing. 
But, the people who named the publication in 1896 were all 
products of the then prevalent classical high school education. 
They knew their Latin. "Monticola" means "dweller in the 
mountains." By a very slight adaptation, we arrive at the fact 
that "Monticola" means MOUNTAINEER. What could be 
more appropriate?

College is a community of people who experience unifying 
bonds. The bonds at West Virginia University are those of heri- 
tage and tradition. In looking at the past, we cannot help but 
examine the events that have occurred. Could 1978-79 ever be 
as good as previous years? After much thought the answer was 
obvious: perhaps it could never be as good, perhaps it could 
be better. 

Southern West Virginia is filled with natural beauty. 

^ £ Livin' Mountaineer Style 5 



We should move ahead whether that means success or fail- 
ure with a fond regard for the past. West Virginia abounds 
with tradition. We must look to the past in order to guide the 
present and prepare for the future. Maybe 1978-79 would be 
the year to break traditions. Could the Mountaineers beat Pitt 
or Penn State? Could West Virginia break the tradition of being 
thought of as the hillbilly state? 

Win or lose, June Speranza never stopped support 
ing the WVU football team. 

The Lair became a page out of time as people got 
popcorn from the Little Red Coach.

Would the Alpha Xi's continue to produce the Homecoming 
queens? Could Gale Catlett produce a basketball team we 
could support? 

Maybe 1978-79 would be the year to start traditions. Despite 
controversy, a new Mountaineer Field was on the drawing 
board. For the first time in years, students and faculty came to- 
gether "after hours." Rolling of the rug began again. 

A little extra entertainment was seen at football 
games with these loyal fans. 


Livin' Mountaineer Style 7 



Above all, we were sure 1978-79 would be the year to con- 
tinue traditions. There are so many at WVU that if we tried to 
break all that exist, we would have nothing to use for a base 
for the new traditions we intended to begin. 

Although the interests of the students at West Virginia Uni- 
versity are so diversified, all take part in the Mountaineer

Each student, in a certain way, is misunderstood and unac- 
cepted by others just as the early Mountaineers were. A sense 
of pride, accomplishment, and reliability touch each and every 
student, each Mountaineer. Students at West Virginia Univer- 
sity treasure the Mountaineer heritage. Each student, in his 
own special way, is Livin' Mountaineer Style.

Being in college means so many things to so many individ- 
uals. Everyone has his likes and dislikes, his places to go and 
not to go. Each knows the times to study and the times to 
party. Students at WVU are no different. There are times to 
spend alone and times to spend with others. No matter how 
each spends his time, there is no way to avoid Livin' Moun- 
taineer Style.

Summer Days in Fall 

Leg watching is a popular sport for Bill Burns 
criminology senior. 

The Lair steps are always a popular warm weather 

The closing of the Stadium Bridge caused many 
problems for students. 

12 Back to School 

Playing frisbee is a great way to avoid studying. 

New signs on both campuses helped to unify the 

Registration problems will NEVER end. 

Summer days found WVU students all 
over the country. By the middle of Au- 
gust, thoughts turned to the start of an- 
other academic year and Morgantown. 
Some 20,000 students and 1,700 faculty 
members invaded the city, with traffic 
jams everywhere. 

Returning and incoming students had 
to deal with many changes and incon- 
veniences. The Stadium Bridge had been 
closed, the PRT was not operating and 
renovations to several buildings were 
underway. All became accustomed to 
standing in lines whether it was to buy 
books, pay tuition, or get a cold drink. 
When classes began August 23, the hot 
and humid weather resulted in students 
clad in shorts, tank tops and halters. 

Everyone thought summer school was 
still in session as the mercury inched into 
the 90's. Wall-sitting was the favorite 
pastime for most. Attention spans for 
both students and teachers were short, 
while afternoon classes seemed to drag 
with thoughts turning to Cheat Lake, wa- 
ter skiing and suntans. 

Back to School 13 

Sweater Weather 

By mid-September, beautiful autumn 
colors adorned both campuses. As 
"sweater weather" began, thoughts 
turned to football, partying and some- 
times studying. 

The renovations continued; the site of 
the old Daily Athenaeum was conve- 
niently converted to a parking lot. 

Parties of every kind occurred a 
around town. The Mountaineer 14-12 
victory in the home opener had fans 
"going crazy" and "getting wild." Maybe 
being back in Morgantown wasn't a 
that bad. 

General studies sophomore, Beba Echard, had 
trouble finding a sweater long enough to cover- 
tier hair.

16 Fall in Motown 

Merry Moore, biology freshman, found romping in 
the leaves a good fall activity. 

Many found that studying outside 
cured the "back to school blues." Stu- 
dents took to jumping the bridge and 
playing in the leaves. 

Fall meant West Virginians in the na- 
tional news. President Jimmy Carter at- 
tended the Forest Festival in Elkins. The 
entire country watched the Senatorial 
race in the state. Incumbent Jennings 
Randolph defeated former Governor 
Arch Moore in one of the closest elec- 
tions ever. 

All did their Mountaineer livin' in a 
little different style.

Residents of Stalnaker Hall discovered that friends 
come in all shapes and sizes. 

Even the Mountaineer statue found there was no 
way to avoid the "white stuff of winter." 

18 Winter in Motown 

As the months slipped by, students 
found it necessary to change from shorts 
and sandals to down coats and boots. 

Traying, skiing and snowballing be- 
came favorite pastimes. At times, driving 
became impossible. Attendance in 
classes dropped as the roads got worse. 

February 19, Washington's birthday 
recess, provided a break in the class 
monotony, but not in the weather blues. 
Four to six inches of new snow covered 
the campus the day before. 

Spring break started February 23. 
"Anywhere south" seemed to be the 
destination of most. Students knew that 
spring break meant about two more 
months of Morgantown and classes. 
May brings vacations, money-and grad- 
uation for the lucky ones. 

Larry Sappington, forestry student, found that going 
to the Archery Range for lab meant wearing gloves.

which do not fall into the fast-food

doing quite well. The menu includes 
soups, sandwiches and salads. Each is 
delicious and the prices are reasonable.

This year's Homecoming was little dif- 
ferent from those in the recent past. The 
Mountaineers lost, the weather was 
chilly, and the Alpha Xi's nominee was 
crowned Homecoming Queen. 

The festivities which creatively sur- 
rounded Homecoming this year cen- 
tered around the theme Music! Music!

The Homecoming committee, chaired 
by Ed Rahal, added a personal touch to 
the events this year. The Homecoming 
Queen finalists had a luncheon with Mrs. 
Gene Budig. There was a fashion show 
with the nominees, finalists and the Uni- 
versity football team, a "Disco Night" at 
Fat Daddy's with a Steve Martin imper- 
sonation contest, a beer chugging con- 
test, a talent show, a pep rally and of 
course the annual Homecoming parade 
and football game. 

When the alumni came back to this 
crazy town, they found that these hills 
were truly alive with music, festivities, 
and cheering. 

Signs around campus became a usual sight as 
Homecoming Week drew near.

Today, WVU has 89 buildings and 
801.1 acres of land. It has two campuses 
and more than 20,000 students. The orig-

Clothes Make the Man 

It has often been said that 
clothes can make the man, 
and that is more than appro- 
priate in the case of Univer- 
sity Mountaineer Rick Poling. 

The first-year law student 
from Grantsville donned new 
buckskins this year, and with 
the help of a Morgantown 
craftsman, Marvin Wotring, 
he has developed into the 
main focal point wherever he 
goes, whether it be a ball 
game or any other function 
where the University mascot 

Poling, a 23-year-old Cal- 
houn County native who was 
selected last year by Moun- 
tain, the ranking men's honor- 
ary, to reign as the Mountain- 
eer, said Wotring did a 
"fantastc job" on the suit he 
wears to promote the Univer- 
sity throughout the state as 
well as at WVU athletic con- 
tests. Wotring's total effort 
produced buckskin shirt and 
pants, a coonskin cap, a 
scrimshawed powder horn, 
leather pouch fringed leather 
rifle case and a rifle to boot- 
all for the meager cost of 
$595. That may sound like a 
lot of money, but the muz- 
zleloader Wotring hand- 
made has been appraised for 
$650, well over the total cost 
of the endeavor. 

Referring to his new look, 
Poling said it gives him more 
of an authentic feeling. "It's" 
made by hand as it would 
have been years ago, and 
most people think the gun is 
much older than it really is 
because of its authenticity," 
he explained. 

Changing the topic to the 
suit's creator, Poling indicated 
that Marvin Wotring, of 245 
Webster Ave., has a "heart as 
big as Morgantown. I know 
from my past experiences 
that you always get about 
twice what you came for 
when dealing with him," 
noted Poling, "but I should 
have known he was up to 
something the way he was 
grin'in and shak'in his head 

up and down as usual when 
we told him what we 

Poling was referring to the 
history of the uniform, which 
is as interesting as the man 
who made it. 

Marvin Wotring, a 1965 
graduate of WVU, earned a 
degree in agricultural educa- 
tion, and like most of his fel- 
low graduates, he advanced 
into the job market following 
school. Marvin works for the 
U.S. Department of Agricul- 
ture as a program specialist in 
the Agricultural Conservation 
program to assist farmers 
with cost-sharing, but up until 
four and a half years ago, the 
Preston County native spent 
his spare time behind the 
television. Then after a knee 
operation, Wotring enrolled 
in vocational-technical 
classes and learned a craft in 
which he devotes almost all 
his leisure— making buckskin 
outfits from split cowhide, 
mending raccoon skins into 
coonskin caps, sculpting 
muzzleloaders from raw ma- 
terials and scrimshawing fig- 
ures onto bull horns for pow- 
der use. The three-month 
class in Kingwood taught 
Marvin how to construct rifles 
from a kit, and stimulated the 
Morgantown resident to 
open a shop in his home 
called, "The Frontiersman." In 
his four and a half years in the 
shop, he has made 34 rifles 
from scratch, but he prides 
himself most on his creation 
of the full outfit for his alma 
mater's Mountaineer mascot. 

It all began at the annual 
Buckwheat Festival in King- 
wood, where the then- 
Homecoming Parade chair- 
man Rod Windom noticed 
the craftsman shaping a rifle 
from a large chunk of wood 
and miscellaneous parts. 
Windom began to watch him 
in action, and all of a sudden, 
a thought popped into his 
head. It was the nation's Bi- 
centennial, and his three-year 
old son, Scottie, wanted to 

march in the parade as a 

Scottie marched in the pa- 
rade in buckskins made by 
his mother, but still longed for 
an authentic suit. Scottie 
wasn't the only Mountaineer 
along the parade route. "Mar- 
vin, and a friend, Ray Burn- 
ham, were in the parade, also 
dressed as Mountaineers." 
Windom explained. "They 
marched along the parade 
route several times, and more 
than one spectator jokingly 
asked, 'How many Mountain- 
eers are they going to have in 
the parade?'" 

Windom said his son saved 
his pennies each day after ad- 
miring Marvin's Mountaineer 
garb, and before long, the 
younger Windom sported his 
very own set of fashionable 
buckskins. He now serves as 
the "Little Mountaineer' join- 
ing Poling in his spirit building 

Once Marvin finished 

Scottie's suit, the current 
Mountaineer Rick Poling was 
serving as an alternate for the 
Syracuse game. The suit 
which 1977-78 Mountaineer 
Bruce Heisler wore was too 
tight for Rick, so he borrowed 
Marvin's. "I got a lot of com- 
pliments from the alumni," 
Poling noted. "We got talking 
in Mountain about the possi- 
bilities of a new uniform, and 
decided to take our case to 
the Athletic Department, who 
furnishes the Mountaineer's 
uniform and gun when 

Robert Coin, assistant ath- 
letic director, loved the idea 
and agreed that Wotring's of- 
fer of a complete outfit for 
$595 was a real bargain. 

Although the decision to go 
ahead with Marvin's offer 
didn't come until mid-July, 
the 38-year old father of three 
worked tediously on the suit 
until it was completed— just 
days before the Mountain- 

40 Morgantown Craftsman 

eers' home opener against 
Richmond. Wotring worked 
for about six hours each eve- 
ning and 16-17 hours on 
weekends to complete the 
product, and two weeks later, 
called Rod and Rick over to 
inspect his product. When 
the pair arrived, they ex- 
pected a half-finished suit, 
but were surprised to find 
complete buckskins ala pow- 
der horn, leather pouch, 
coonskin cap, rifle case and 

Those involved with asking 
the Morgantown craftsman to 
make the suit agreed that a 
"no frills boy" rifle would 
have to do, especially when 
the Mountaineer was getting 
all the extras on the remain- 
der of the outfit. However, 
Marvin second-guessed them 
and did what Windom called 
a "special" job. "I really con- 
centrated on this job," noted 
Wotring," and I wanted to get 

it done fast, but at the same 
time, I wanted to do my 
best." And that he did. 

The brown-haired, blue- 
eyed craftsman used split 
cowhide on the shirt and 
pants, brass engraving on the 
muzzleloader with a brass 
replica of the Mountain State 
inlaid on the handle and only 
authentic materials from 
West Virginia. 

Marvin said he felt "real 
proud" watching Poling at 
athletic contests and said ev- 
ery time he hears the muz- 
zleloader fire, he thinks of 
where it came from. It is 
amazing how drastic a 
change Marvin made in just 
four and a half years. After 
viewing his finished creations, 
one would insist Marvin has 
been at it for his entire life- 
time. The Morgantown crafts- 
man spends his time more 
productively now and enjoys 
it. "I derive a lot of pleasure 

from my work, and the whole 
family enjoys shooting, 
camping, and competing with 
others who enjoy shooting 
old muzzleloaders, throwing 
tomahawks and knives. I also 
enjoy all the people I meet," 
he marveled. "The people 
just keep coming back once 
they've bought something," 
he added with a smile. 

Those responsible for the 
Mountaineer's new look are 
quite fortunate they found 
such a skilled craftsman so 
close to home. The shoddy, 
lightweight machine-sewn 
uniform and the muzzleloa- 
der built from a "cheap Ital- 
ian kit" have been trans- 
formed into the most 
"authentic" Mountaineer spe- 
cialties ever imagined. 

And I'll bet Marvin Wotring 

is still grin'in and shak'in his 

head up and down as usual.

A Celebration of the State 

42 Mountaineer Week 

I One of the many events of the week was chopping 
I in the Lair garden. 

Dr. Eldoonie's Magic Medicine Show had many 
avoiding classes. 

The Arts and Crafts Fair had many students wishing 
for more money. 

West Virginians were pleasantly sur- 
prised to hear their radios playing a pop- 
ular opening with the words, "Almost 
Heaven, West Virginia . . ." in the au- 
tumn of 1971. The song quickly became 
a semi-official anthem, and "Almost 
Heaven" became a popular slogan. Un- 
like the slogans that boosters cranked 
out in the past, "Almost Heaven" was 
not an attempt to create pride where 
pride was lacking. 

"Heritage is a peculiar thing. It's that 
which has happened long ago and few 
people appreciate and you think should 
come back," noted Jim Comstock, edi- 
tor of the West Virginia Hillbilly. 

Mountaineer Week 43 


A Celebration 

Through the week-long festival of arts 
and crafts, demonstrations, speakers and 
entertainers, all dealing with West Vir- 
ginia or Appalachian culture, participants 
were able to see the meaning of one's 
heritage, especially West Virginia's 

Mountaineer Week has developed 
into a tradition and novelty at the Uni- 
versity. It is an incentive to examine the 
Mountain State's heritage and what it 
has to offer. 

Quilt shows and competitions were 
offered to the University students. Dr. El- 
doonie's Magic Show, Roger Bryant and 
Aunt Jenny Wilson provided an inter- 
esting side-light to classes. Craftsmen 
were in action spinning, weaving, blow- 
ing, splitting shingles, braiding rugs and 
hand-hewing logs. 

Rick Palmer fiddled his way through the week. 

Cindy Cline and Kevin Mallison were chosen as 
Mr. and Ms. Mountaineer.

watched the Mountaineers battle their 
way on the field against Virginia in a 20-

One of the busiest student unions in 
the nation, the Mountainlair offers a vari- 
ety of services to the University commu-

rooms, meeting rooms and information

TO i 

The Lair is considered a model student 
union with over 20,000 persons using it 
daily. The number of meetings and pro- 
grams has grown to 5,000 a year. Offi- 
cials have considered building a satellite 
student union on the Evansdale campus. 

At WVU, the Mountainlair has be- 
come the focal point of activities and 
has become as intimate a part of the 
University as the Mountaineers. 

For the first time in years, pictures of the under- 
classmen were placed in the yearbook.

In August, students were greeted by 
construction crews all over the campus. 
Renovation of Woodburn Circle contin- 
ued. Chitwood Hall reopened in De- 
cember. Woodburn Hall is scheduled to 
open for the 1979-80 year. 

The PRT construction seemed to 
dominate the campuses. Workers bat- 
tled all types of weather in efforts to 
complete the "people mover" on time. 

Stansbury and Colson Hall were also 
locations for renovation. Construction of 
the new library began. 

All students, faculty and staff agreed 
that the renovations would add a great 
deal to the "academic atmosphere" at 
the University. 

Renovation of Chitwood Hall was completed late 
in 1978. 

Construction of the PRT to the Medical Center of- 
ten caused traffic tie-ups. 

Upon completion, Colson Hall will house offices 
and the West Virginia Collection.

58 Stacking Contest 

It has been said that "kids say and do 
the funniest things." WVU students chal- 
lenged that old saying by participating in 
a beer case stacking contest sponsored 
by Stroh's. The preliminary competition 
took place in the Lair ballrooms. Finals 
were held during halftime of the WVU- 
Duquesne game. The winning team rep- 
resented Pi Kappa Phi fraternity. Each 
member of the winning team received a 
10-speed bike. Who said college stu- 
dents study all the time?

Poor weather kept many students from the polls. 

Marred by bad weather and poor stu- 
dent turnout, Student Administration 
elections were held Feb. 7. The number 
of students voting decreased by 1100 
from last year. In total, 4,812 students 
voted this year. 

The Underwood/Armstrong team was 
elected student body president and vice

Can't Stop Dancin' : 

66 Dance Marathon 

When the clock showed 6:30 p.m. on 
Feb. 9, 52 couples began dancing at the 
Mountaineer Mall. Twenty four hours 
later, 51 couples were still dancing and 
raising money to help fight Muscular 
Dystrophy. The energetic couples of the 
"Can't Stop Dancin' Marathon" raised 
$15,255.58, $4000 more than in 1978, but 
still short of the $20,000 goal. 

The music was provided by WVAQ. 
Square dancers, blue grass musicians 
and 50's specialists were on hand to help 
the WVU students. Gale Catlett danced 
for a few minutes to support the event. 

The marathon proved that all types of 
Mountaineers could join together to 
help a worthwhile cause. 

WVAQ helped keep the dancers alive. 

"Break" time meant "collapse" time.

teams from Charleston, Youngstown, 
Maryland, Ohio State, Penn State, and 

The Scuba Club sponsored dives in 
various lakes throughout the area. One 
of the most successful dives was an 
ecology dive in conjunction with ASPA. 
The dive was a general clean-up of 
Cheat Lake. Aluminum cans were col- 
lected and recycled. The proceeds were 
donated to the Monongalia Art Center. 

The Sports Federation involved many 
students. It was clear that the organiza- 
tion will become one of the more im- 
portant in years to come.

Free time! What's that? That 
seems to be the general question 
of WVU students. No one seems to 
know what it is; yet everyone can 
find something to do with it. 

The average student spends 16 
hours per week in class. With 16 
hours of classes, the recommended 
study time is 45 hours a week, and 
8 hours sleep a night. That leaves 
51 hours for a student to spend as 
he or she wants. But who really 
sleeps 8 hours a night and studies 7 
Vi hours a day? 

Most students will sacrifice 
classes or sleep for a few extra 
hours of free time. According to a 
recent MONTICOLA survey, the 
students' favorite way to spend 
free time was a night out with 

To some people, a night out with 
friends meant a visit to Sunnyside, 
Morgantown's answer to the Las 
Vegas Strip. Friday and Saturday 
nights found Sunnyside filled with 
students hell-bent on having a 
good time. If you had "Saturday 
Night Fever," Fat Daddy's, Mur- 
phy's, or Mickey's would have ap- 
pealed to you. The more sophis- 
ticated crowd chose to spend their 
time at the Executive Club, Bam- 
boo Lounge, and other more ex- 
pensive establishments. 

82 Entertainment 

West Virginia University had several outstanding 
concerts during the year. 

Drama and music lovers could 
attend the full program of events 
offered at the Creative Arts Center. 
Events ranged from recitals to vis- 
iting artists to full scale produc- 
tions. Student Government and 
other various organizations con- 
tributed to the WVU entertainment 
by providing concerts, coffee- 
houses, speakers and movies. Sec- 
ond only to a night out with friends 
was T.V., radio, and stereo. Billy 
Joel's albums, "52nd Street" and 
"The Stranger" held the 1st and 
2nd choices in the favorite album 
category. The overwhelming favor- 
ite T.V. show was "Mork and 
Mindy." Comic Steve Martin 
topped the list for favorite

WVU and the Arts 

The ALLNATIONS Dance Company presented tra- 
ditional folk and classical cultures of our world 
through dance. 

A dance of the Caribbean Islands, "Flirtation", was 
performed by the ALLNATIONS Dance Company. 

Classical Arts worked hard this year in 
bringing various types of entertainment 
to West Virginia University. One of the 
largest productions was the Gingerbread 
production of "The Sound of Music". 

A different style of dancing from all 
cultures of the world was performed by 
the ALLNATIONS Dance Company. The 
ALLNATIONS Dance Company, a 
troupe of professional dancers, have 
performed all over the world in concerts, 
television shows and cultural festivals. 

For the music lover, Herbie Mann, 
Maynard Ferguson and Liona Boyd were

tening pleasure.

Leon Redbone recreated turn-of-century tunes and 
kept a Ballroom audience captivated with his mu-

Sunday, February 11 was an evening 
most students attending the Leon Red- 
bone concert won't forget. 

Strolling onto the stage in an antique 
suit and carrying a walking stick, Red- 
bone was the image of the Midwestern 
gentleman, half-a-century removed. 

The crowd knew what to expect and 
mellowed out with him in a fun, musi- 
cally admirable evening. 

One month later, Sunday, March 11, 
Mini Events sponsored another great 
concert. The Nighthawks flew in for a 
pair of Lair Ballroom performances. The

West Virginia University has entertain-

certs and plays at the CAC to coffee- 
houses and performances at the Blue 
Tic, students always had a wide selection 
of entertainment.

92 Doobie Brothers 

"Blackwater", "China Grove", "TakirT 
It To The Streets" and "It Keeps You 
Runnin'. . ." were just songs on the radio 
until September 24, 1978 when the 
Doobie Brothers brought the songs 
alive. The Doobie Brothers played for 
two hours and the sell-out crowd played 
with them through every song. Hun- 
dreds of people sang with the group or 
stood and clapped with the music. The 
time was magic and the Doobies held 
the crowd, and in turn, the crowd kept 
bringing them back for encores. For one 
night, the Doobie Brothers really did 
shine under the Morgantown Moon. 

The Doobie Brothers held the crowd spellbound 
for two hours. 

The sound of the keyboards added to the fantastic 
sound which came from the WVU Coliseum on 
September 24.

Would Boston be cancelled due to 
snow? That seemed to be the general 
question of the week preceding the con- 
cert. The sky was clear, no snow was in 
sight and Boston made it to the WVU 
Coliseum Jan. 26, 1979. 

The Coliseum was filled as the show 
opened with Sammy Hagar. After keep- 
ing the crowd entertained for an hour, 
there was an intermission. The wait was 
longer than expected, but it was worth it 
as Boston took the stage. The crowd ex- 
ploded to their sound. The crowd re- 
sponded to each song and did not let 
the group leave without several encores. 

Brad Delp did not seem to mind giving the crowd 
more of what they wanted to hear. 

Tom Sholtz enjoyed performing as much as the 
crowd enjoyed listening to him play. 


Sammy Hager could not stand still as he enter- 
tained a full house at the WVU Coliseum.

No two have the same personality, the same way of life. But, 
each is a special part of West Virginia University. Whether 
freshman, sophomore, junior or senior, each is a Mountaineer. 
Although activities of each student, each Mountaineer, are so

Any person can be an athlete in his own way, but a WVU 
athlete is a special person. He is a Mountaineer. He competes 
with the feeling that the final score is only for statistics. The 
true meaning of a contest is the feeling of being a Mountain- 
eer. Every West Virginia University athlete knows it's not 
whether you win or lose . . . it's Livin' Mountaineer Style. 


Gale Catlett brought a winning attitude with 
him. This player shoots for two. 


The first win of the season had the Mountaineers 
and the fans wanting more. 

WVU swimmers were once again very successful. 

Sports 209 

Team Makes History 

Ken Braswell began another season with this tackle 
of a Richmond opponent. 

Once again, Fulton Walker was the ball carrier. 
Jack Palmer would not let this opponent escape 

210 Football 

Doc Holliday, Jeff Macerelli and John Bendana al- 
ways looked as though they meant business. 

This pileup found WVU on the bottom once again. 

A fan, is a fan, is a fan! Loyal and spir- 
ited to the end, the fan is always there 
rooting for the team. This year's football 
fans' loyalty and patience were put to a 
test. We passed with flying colors! 

So our football team won only two 
games and lost nine. We were the only 
team to play the top two ranking teams. 
Think about it! 

Our team was young and inexperi- 
enced, but tried hard. The Mountaineers' 
determination was a major factor in 
keeping together. Not too many other 
schools had a schedule like ours. If we 
cannot brag about our record, why not 
brag about who we played? Think about 

The Mountaineers started off their 
season with a 14-12 victory over the 
Richmond Spiders. Dutch Hoffman was 
named the Offensive Player of the week 
for this performance. Hoffman com- 
pleted 11 of 23 passes for a total of 176 
yards. Robert Alexander was the game's 
top rusher with 84 yards on 19 carries. 
Curt Carion waved the Mountaineers 

with his booming kicks that kept the Spi- 
ders in their web. The big play of the 
game was a 41 yard TD pass play be- 
tween quarterback Dutch Hoffman and 
wide receiver Cedric Thomas. 

There is not much that can be said 
about the game with Oklahoma. The 
Mountaineers played on the Sooners' 
turf under extreme heat. The heat did 
not turn the team "red hot". Over 70,000 
people attended the game and the final 
score was 52-10. The Sooners were just 
too fast, just too agile-just too good. To 
play the number one team was an honor 
in itself. Think about it! 

In the third game of the season, the 
Mountaineers were nipped by North 
Carolina's Wolfpack with a final score of 
19-15. The Mountaineers were off to a 
good start in the first quarter with a 
score of 12-7, but they could hold down 
Ted Brown whose two key plays led to 
two touchdowns-they meant the differ- 
ence between a 15-15 tie. Coach Cig- 
netti's approach to the game was to 
make North Carolina beat themselves, 
but that plan did not work. The score 
was close, but the Wolfpack was just too 

The Mountaineers lost a heartbreaking 
fourth game to the California Bears. The 
final score was 28-21. It was heart- 
breaking because the Mountaineers dis- 
played both offensive and defensive tal- 
ents against a skilled team. The 
Mountaineers freshman backfield was 
impressive after they moved the ball 
downfield with no trouble.

They Played Tough 

For the sixth year in a row, the Moun- 
taineers lost the Homecoming game. 
The final score was 31-15. Three times 
the Mountaineer fans saw their team 
fizzle out within the Syracuse ten-yard 
ine. We just could not get the ball on 
our side as the Orangemen squeezed 
the Mountaineers. 

In the sixth game of the season, nei- 
ther WVU or Virginia Tech deserved to 
win, but VT did with a 16-3 decision. 
Both teams performed sloppily, had nu- 
merous turnovers and missed several 
key kicks. Fifteen fumbles were re- 
corded-twelve occurred in the first 
thirty seconds. 

One point, just one point behind! 
Against Temple, the Mountaineers led a 
passing attack on the first half and led a 
running attack in the second half. What 
happened? The Mountaineers lost their 
momentum. The Owls took over; the 
Mountaineers could not come back. 

The thrill of a touchdown came rarely to the 1978 

Ken Braswell enjoyed showing his opponents he 
like being on top. 

They Fought Hard 

Mike Williams was a key player in the Pitt game.

The first seven minutes of the WVU- 
Penn State game were thrilling. Everyone 
was delirious while the score was 14-0. 
The Lions removed the thorns from their 
paws, turned around and regained con- 
trol of the ball and the game. The final 
score found the Lions victorious. We 
could only have the nationally ranked 
team by the tail for so long. 

In the ninth game, the Mountaineers 
broke their seven game losing streak by 
winning over the University of Virginia 
29-17. Dutch Hoffman passed for 106 
yards and scored a touchdown. Defen- 
sive linebackers Ken Braswell and John 
Garcai combined for 25 tackles and Ful- 
ton Walker chalked up 87 yards. Finally, 
the Mountaineers played a game of 
football that paid off. The Cavaliers were 
playing something else.

Think About It 

In the tenth game, the Pitt Panthers 
leaped on the Mountaineers and 
crushed them with no mercy. Hindered 
by injuries and ineffectiveness, the 
Mountaineers lost to Pitt by a whopping 
score of 52-7. WVU's lone score was by 
the efforts of Hoffman and Steve Lewis. 
In a Pitt fumble, the Mountaineers al- 
most regained the ball, but Panther Dave 
DiCiccio got in the way of the Hoffman 
to Duggan pass. While the Mountaineers 
jumped back on the losing side once 
again, the Panthers gained another win. 

The Mountaineers lost their last game 
of the season to Colorado State by a 
score of 52-14. Although WVU scored 
two touchdowns on the Rams, the Rams 
succeeded in butting WVU into the wall. 
What else can be said except that this 
season was a hard one to swallow. Think 
about it!

The soccer squad ended their season 
with an 8-6-1 record. Compared to last 
year's team, the team appeared to be 
stronger and to play more as a team. 
This fairly young team was opposed by 
many stronger teams such as Clemson, 
Southern Florida, Navy, and Cleveland 

Against Alderson-Broaddus, the play- 
ers presented a tight passing and aggres- 
sive defensive play which upset the A-B 
plan. The Mountaineers brought the 
crowd to their feet many times through- 
out the game. A-B came into the match 
thinking lightly of the Mountaineers, but

Under the superior coaching of Bill 
Bonsall, the Men's Gymnastics team had 
a very rewarding season this year. The 
team competed with schools of very 
high caliber and still came out favorably. 

At the beginning of the season, the 
members set a goal of 180 points a 
"meet". In gymnastic ranking, this con- 
stitutes a good team. The men gymnasts 
have met their goal on several accounts, 
breaking last year's record of 176 points. 

Mike Sleeper is definitely a key indi- 
vidual. Coach Bonsall considers him the 
"Bruce Jenner" of the team. Another 
outstanding player is Brett Kelly. He is 
one of the team's best floor exercise 
men and the only West Virginia native 
on the team. Ironically, West Virginia 
gymnasts are hard to find. The team as a 
whole was well trained and talented and 
all members were necessary to produce 
a successful season.

These wins gave the Number One 
state ranking back to WVU, and it also 
gave them a berth in the AWIA Region 
Five Tournament in Indiana. Coach 
Thorn allowed 8 of the 16 girls on the 
team to travel. In comparison to other 
teams, this is a fairly large number. 

Composed of one senior, three ju- 
niors, and the rest freshmen, the women 
netters were a young team. 

Despite an arm injury, Karla Yoho maintained the 
number one position on the team.

Best Beginning 

EXCITING! Wins, losses, and ties-ex- 
citing was the word for the 78-79 wres- 
tling team. Boasting a 9-3-1 record under 
first year coach Craig Turnbull, the WVU 
grapplers had their best beginning in the 
last 15 years. Their three losses went to 
teams that were ranked among the top 
15 in the country. The team's one tie was 
with Ohio University who was ranked 13 
among college teams last year. 

Turnbull had a relatively young team 
to work with this year: seven soph- 
omores and three freshman. With such a 
young team and a brand new coach, the 
matmen did extremely well. They gave 
Maryland (whom they have not beaten 
since 1950) a big surprise when they 
"floored" them 27-15. That was the most 
exciting match of the entire season.

Wrestling brought close encounters of the 
strangest kind. 

Although everyone on the team con- 
tributed tremendous effort and ability, 
there have been a few men who deserve 
some recognition. Sophomore Mark 
Cagle was a great asset to the team this 
year. He finished the year with a 15-1 
record and was ranked 14 in the country 
by "Wrestlers Magazine." Mike Perry 
helped the team with his 10-3 record. Up 
and coming freshman, Joel Davia put 
forth much effort and finished off the 
year with a 12-3-1 record. 

All in all, this has been an interesting 
season. The wrestlers and fans have 
been satisfied, and no matter what the 
outcome of any match, it was always

Penn State March 1-3. 

"We impressed a lot of people with 
our program," said Head Coach Kevin

with a 5-1 record, Gilson captured 
Coach of the Year honors, and junior 
John Havlik swam away with the meet's 
Outstanding Swimmer Award. At the 
meet, Havlik qualified for nationals. 

First year Women's head coach, Kathy

As the basketball season drew near, 
hopeful Mountaineer fans looked to it 
with reserved anticipation. The previous 
season had ended with a "negative atti- 
tude" settling on the basketball program 
so a new coaching staff headed by WVU 
alumus Gale Catlett was asked to rebuild 
its crumbling reputation. 

After the campaign was history, Cat- 
lett called this 17th year in the business, 
"probably my most enjoyable year of 

Getting a late start on the recruiting 
trail, "The Cat" had to rely heavily on the 
forces of a 12-16 squad from a year be- 
fore. He warned the West Virginia fol- 
lowers not to expect miracles, or for that 
matter, a year much beyond a "rebuild- 
ing" one.

When the final whistle had blown, 
WVU owned a 16-12 mark, had set a 
new single season attendance record, a 
new single game state attendance mark 
and had finished second in the Eastern 

The first month on the roundball sea- 
son, WVU rode the proverbial roller 
coaster. Catlett and company opened in 
the Coliseum by winning the first two 
games and eventually proving its 14-4 
home record didn't happen by chance. 

But three contests later probably the 
lowest points of the year were suffered 
as the Louisville Cardinals flew away 
with 106-60 decision followed by a loss 
to Ohio University in the first round of 
the West Virginia Classic. 

Christmas break had emptied Mor- 
gantown and few saw the beginning of 
the Blue and Cold's longest winning 
streak starting with state rival Marshall.

Four consecutive victories, two of 
them on last second jumpers, led up to a 
frenzied 83-82 triumph over Metro-7 
conference champion Virginia Tech. In 
the battle, guard Lowes Moore danced 
on the Cobbler defense to the tune of 34 
points to set a WVU individual season 

During the victory skein, sixth man 
Dana Perno started emerging to his 
eventual starting status after 14 and 20- 
point performances back-to-back. As 
the streak ended with an away loss 
against Duquesne, marred by the fist- 
cuffs of Duke's guard Baron "B.B." Fle- 
nory, the "Lowes Show" had just begun. 

In four games, the junior scoring ma- 
chine poured in 124 points and in the 
process was named EAA Player of The 
Week twice and ECAC Co-Player of The 
Week. By mid-January WVU possessed 
a 10-4 record. 

But the mercury continued to drop 
outside and so did WVU's basketball 
stability. Catlett's old Cincinnati team 
rolled into the Coliseum and over the 
Mountaineers. A road trip north pro- 
vided two more marks in the lost col- 

Pernb performed well again in the Massachusetts 

umn with a 41 -point blowout by league- 
leader Villanova and a loss to eastern 
power Syracuse. 

When WVU was forced to leave the 
secure confines of the Coliseum, they 
were somewhat short of even relative 
successful, evident by a 2-7 away record. 

Later back at home, Duquesne came 
to Morgantown but when Flenory saw a 
picture of a dummy in effigy in his honor 
in the Athenaeum, he decided Pittsburgh 
was safer. The Dukes probably wished 
they had gone back with him as WVU 
coasted to a 28-point victory. 

This momentum was carried for a 
seven-point decision over Rutgers but 
two games later Eastern Kentucky's 
James "Turkey" Tillman's 34 points shot 
the Blue and Gold down. That brought 
them home for a confrontation with a 
team that was not likely to be awed by a 
home court advantage. 

Third ranked Notre Dame drew the 
largest crowd in the state's basketball 
history-15,118-but a second half surge 
doused any WVU upset hopes. The Irish 
did, however feel the student body's 
presence as the court was frequently 
showered with marshmallows at any 
questionable call.

As the campaign wound to a close, a 
last second shot by Moore gave WVU a 
victory over George Washington and the 
home court advantage in the EAA open- 
ing round. Duquesne's second visit to 
Morgantown again resulted in a loss as 
forward Greg Nance seemed to have a 
patent on the basket connecting on 10 
of 12 attempts.

tizzy. He blasted the officiating, calling it 
"the worst I've seen in 16 years of 
coaching" and called the league in gen- 
eral "bush."

Ladies Look to Next Year 

It was a frustrating season for the Lady 
Mountaineers as the women's basketball 
team fell to their opponents 16 times; 
winning nine encounters. 

A tougher schedule and untimely of- 
fensive cold spells were the biggest fac- 
tors contributing to losses suffered to 
Pitt-Johnstown, Slippery Rock, Pitt, Mor- 
ris Harvey and Villanova. 

In a majority of the team's losses, the 
WVU squad saw decisive leads dwindle 
before falling victims to rejuvenated sec- 
ond half opponents. 

"Other teams will look at our record 
and see we lost 16 games. They won't 
see our stats or look at the two, three 
and four-point losses; they'll just see that 
we lost," said Coach Kitty Blakemore. 

And by looking at the stats, one can 
see that the season's mark was no in- 
dication of the skill and ability of the 
Lady Mountaineers who faced the sea- 
son's start with 10 returnees and three 
highly recruited freshmen. 

Seniors Linda Findo, Mary Hennen 
and Jean Mewshaw were key players in 
the teams' nine victories. 

In the season's opener Findo, Hennen 
and Mewshaw scored in double figures 
to open the term with a victory over 
Trenton State. 

The three seniors figured importantly 
in the team's first win in the Pitt 

In the Second WVU Invitational, the 
women took second place losing to 
Morgan State in the championship 80-

State College in the first round to set the 
match with Morgan State.

In Huntington, the women of WVU 
spoiled the Green Gals dreams with a 
66-54 defeat of the Thundering Herd 
with Findo collecting 16 markers and Pat 
Hovorka, 13. 

Two bright spots during the gloomy 
season were Hennen's reaching the 1000 
career point mark netted in the LaSalle 
College game and Findo's prospect for 
being drafted into the Southern or West- 
ern League of the Women's Professional 
Basketball Association. 

The coach commended the team on 
its play. "The players played hard and 
never wanted to quit. There just were 
times when the basketball wouldn't go 
in the basket." 

Cindy Winegar broke the team's assist record dur-

The Alpha Rho chapter of Kappa Al- 
pha, founded in 1897, has one of the 
oldest and strongest traditions on the 
WVU campus. The KA's maintained 
their image as leaders this year by cap- 
turing first place in Greek Week. 

Kappa Alpha also co-sponsored a 
Christmas Party for the underprivileged 
and a Billiards Tournament to raise 
money for Muscular Dystrophy. 

Other activities this year were winning 
all-campus honors in archery, holding 
jiffs and band parties, a Farmer's Ball and 
playing music over the campus from our 
speakers. The famous Old South Ball, 
upholding Kappa Alpha's southern tradi- 
tion, was also held. 

Kappa Alpha Order, with its diverse 
brotherhood, continues to excel . . . 
South's gonna' do it again!

The "Snakes" had a good year. They 
have a new house on Beechurst, and 
took several new members. The brothers 
won their division in the Fraternity Intra- 
mural competition. The 75th Anniversary 
of the chapter was in February, and the 
chapter has a firm future. While several 
good men are graduating, the fraternity 
is strong. 

The Sigma Nu's were also involved in 
several other campus activities in-

Phi Delta Theta, founded in 1848 at 
Miami University, was established on the 
WVU campus in 1926. The 1978-79 
school year was a successful one for the 
Phi Delts. Phi Delta Theta helped raise 
money for the blind and for the March 
of Dimes as service activities. The Phi 
Delts won their division in flag football, 
tennis, raquetball and wrestling. Frater- 
nity members also won the athlete of the 
year and intramural manager of the year 
awards this year. 

Phi Delts were involved in a variety of 
campus activities including: athletic 
council, class honoraries, Pop Arts com- 
mittee, Classical Arts committee and 
Rec-lntramurals committee. 

Friendship, sound learning, and recti- 
tude are all important in forming the 
strong brotherhood which the Phi Delts 
are proud of. Small, strong, and active, 
Phi Delta Theta is a fraternity for life.

Pi Kappa Phi is proud to be a part of 
WVU's fraternity system. As WVU's 
newest fraternity, it hopes to be an im- 
portant part in the Greek world by 
stressing brotherhood to all Greeks. The 
brothers hope to be an asset to the 
WVU campus and the Morgantown 

Pi Kappa Phi originally had a chapter 
at WVU from 1930-1938. It folded be- 
cause of the depression and the pre-war 
confusion. Due to several dedicated 
people, Pi Kappa Phi was re-chartered 
on November 11, 1978. 

The brothers are currently looking for 
a house and boast a membership of 25 
men. The Pi Kapp's have been involved 
in their national project: Playground 
Units for the Severely Handicapped 

The Pi Kapp's would like to express 
one note to all those of WVU: "Watch 
out . . . the Pi Kapp's are back!"

For the first time in ten years, WVU 
served as host for the regional student 
conference of the American Institute of 
Industrial Engineers. 

The conference theme was T.O.G.A. 
(Topics on Gaining Acceptance into the 
job you want as a graduating IE). The 
agenda included many social items, 
speeches by Dr. Gene Woolsey and In- 
ternational AIIE President Dr. Sid Gil- 
breath, and representatives from 12 pri- 
vate companies. 

A total of 19 schools, representing 
eight states, attended the conference. 
Everyone in attendance received infor- 
mation about the coal, glass, and other 
businesses, along with some pamphlets 
showing the beauty and richness found 
in West Virginia.

Was 1978-79 as good as the previous years? The point is not 
dreams of the present than to be compared with successes 
and accomplishments of the past. Each year and each achieve- 
ment ought to be judged separately and never in comparison 
to any other. 

The year proved to uphold many traditions. Once again Pitt 
and Penn State conquered the Mountaineers on the gridiron.

The Craft Shop at Towers provided a unique way to 
"find" gifts for any occasion.

West Virginia is still known as the hillbilly state. But, as one 
southern West Virginian said, "The only people who do not 
like being called hillbillies are those who aren't". 

The year of 1978-79 was one in which traditions were con- 
tinued. The Alpha Xi's once again produced the Homecoming 
Queen. Gale Catlett brought the feeling of pride to the fans of 
the basketball team, as he began building a successful ball 

The Old Stone House is a landmark of West 

State Rt. 7 in the fall-another example of West Vir 
ginia colors. 

The Pride of West Virginia!

Controversy over athletic situations hit the University. Dr. 
Leland Byrd resigned due to the conflicts that resulted. 

The Marching Band continued to be the highlight of the 
University and the state. The Pride of West Virginia helped to 
bring national recognition to the Mountaineers as they thrilled 
the crowd at the Oklahoma game. 

President Carter brought the country to Elkins when he ap- 
peared at the Forest Festival in October. 

Pre-game warm-up-a hard act to follow. 

The Doobie Brothers performed well and the 
crowd wanted them to play all night.

Those living in the present should never align all their ac- 
tions with those of the past. The opportunities of the present 
can never be like those of the past. The scene is never the 

The year slipped by in a rather unnoticed fashion. However, 
it will be remembered because it marks the ending of an era, 
the ending of a decade. 

Controversy hit the rifle team. It was in the plans to 
eliminate the team of national champs. 

The rowing team could be seen practicing on the

350 Livin' Mountaineer Style 

As we move into the 1980's, some of the traditions will be 
dropped or forgotten, others will be started. Most important 
of all, the Mountaineer tradition will continue. Without that 
tradition, there can be no West Virginia University. WVU has 
so many traditions that if we would try to break them and be- 
gin new ones, we would become lost in the transition into the 

Marsha Crites, med tech freshman, found snow- 
balling a good way to have some fun. 

Livin' Mountaineer Style 351 


WVU students may come from all over the world, may 
study different subjects, and may live in different places while 
in Morgantown. But, by being a part of the University, the 
Mountaineer tradition becomes a part of the individual. Upon 
leaving West Virginia University and Morgantown, each stu- 
dent realizes that he was and will continue to be Livin' Moun- 
taineer Style. 

The Marching Band will continue the Mountaineer 
pride into the future.
