TENNESSEE WESLEYAN COLLEGE 

jtmosTN 37303 



An array of interesting, colorful people make 
up Tennessee Wesleyan College. Wesleyan has 
students not only from all parts of the United 
States, but the World. From the Far East to the 
Middle East, Wesleyan has touched people. 
Variety is endless here at TWC; from the people 
to the activities, it is an ever changing cycle.

BEAUTIFUL iNy yHfliulNy 



Wesleyan in itself is a kind of prism, accentuating and defining the 
talents and abilities of the students in much the same way a prism 
differentiates and separates the rainbow of colors in a beam of 
light.

Tennessee Wesleyan College is changing now, 
just as it has been for the past two hundred 
years. Wesleyan has a heritage of change and 
expansion that is still strong with it today. 
Nonetheless, some things will never change — 
the family atmosphere and the friendships 
formed among the students and faculty. 
Wesleyan because of its' size is very special in 
that respect. 




GAINING BR1LLANCE 



As the seasons pass, Wesleyan is like a 
Kaleidoscope, ever changing and beautiful. 
Always colorful and alive, it is like a rainbow ab- 
sorbing the things around it. It takes its' life and 
brillance from the people here, feeding off them 
becoming brighter and brighter. In return, it gives 
a great deal back to the students. It gives them a 
focus for their abilities and a goal to aim at. 




DEDICATION 



The 1982-83 Nocatula dedication is unique. It is unusual in that it is not dedicated to one person or even 
two. The 1982-83 Nocatula is dedicated to the students, faculty and staff of Tennessee Wesleyan College. 

It is the people that make the college. Wesleyan, being a small college, has many advantages. It allows 
bonds to be formed between people. You are allowed to be a person. A student here is more than a name on a 
seating chart and the faculty and staff is more than a foreboding shadow in a lecture hall or an unknown face in 
an office. 

The people here are all colorful and have a lot to offer. They have determination and dreams. They all have 
hopes and are not afraid to work for what they want. Most important is that the people here care. 

The Nocatula Staff salutes the spectrum of people that comprise Tennessee Wesleyan College. We are 
Proud of you, each and everyone — for what you have accomplished, for the things you are striving for now 
and for your dreams of a bright future. The Nocatula Staff wishes everyone a happy and successful year and 
gives many thanks for The Wesleyan Spectrum.

SPECIAL EVENTS 



Homecoming '83 



The Homecoming Court was presented at halftime of 
the Feb. 3rd Carson-Newman game. The court chosen 
several weeks earlier was comprised of: Margaret Dan- 
nel, Freshman; Rhonda Haskins-Smith, Freshman; San- 
dra Hall, Sophomore; Lee Ann Hicks, Sophomore; Don- 
na Ault, Senior; Kris Cook, Senior; Denna Middleton, 
Junior; and Tenna Middleton, Junior. Donna Ault was 
crowned queen for 1983. She was escorted by Vance 
Owens. The Homecoming Committee, headed by Deb- 
bie Taylor, planned an eventfilled week that ended with 
the dance after the game. A highlight of the dance was 
the midnight breakfast provided by the cafeteria staff. 





12 



The night before the game, a pep rally complete with bon fire was 
held in the New Hall Parking Lot. Fireworks had been planned also, 
but due to heavy winds were cancelled. Mitzi Holt and Vicki Har- 
mon of Sigma Kappa Sorority worked hard stacking wood and 
lighting the large fire. The cheerleaders held a mock funeral for the 
CN Mascot, the Eagle. The TWC Bulldog did a fine job of plucking 
the bird, Andrea Hunter. 





1. The fire built by the Sigma Kappas 

begins to blaze. 

2. Andrea Hunter, the Eagle, awaits her 
encounter with the TWC student body. 

3. The fire begins to spark and grow just 
as did the spirit and enthusiasm of 
the students as the night progressed. 

4. Students really enjoyed the bon fire. 
We hope to see it become an annual 
tradition.

"THE MEN FROM. 

GLAD" 




Due to some hard work done by a few in- 
dividuals, TWC had the honor of hosting 
Glad, a Contemporary Christian group on 
January 25. Funds were raised by the con- 
tributions of the following organizations: Ex- 
tra and Co-Curriculum Committee, SGA, 
WCP, FCA, and BSU. Student turnout was 
not very high, but the students that did at- 
tend felt it was well worth while. The men in 
the band sang a lot of traditional religious 
songs as well as their own compositions. 
After the concert was over, "the men from 
Glad," spent time talking to students about 
their music careers and religious ex- 
periences. It was a night of "joyful noise un- 
to the Lord." Many thanks to the organiza- 
tions who contributed money and the 
dedicated people who ironed out the details 
for their appearance.

Halloween Dance 



The Halloween Dance, sponsored by the SGA, was held October 
29th in the Sherman Gas Room. Alpha Xi Gamma decorated, while 
Sigma Kappa supplied refreshments for those who ventured out for 
the dance. Costumes were wild and varied, but it proved to be great 
fun.

different types of poetry. The class was consisted of a very productive group and the Nocatula would like to showcase some of the stu-

All we see 

is a dim mirror image 
Bright unbroken beams 
Soft swinging streams 
All we see is a dim mirror image 
Wayfaring wings of wonder 
clashing claps of thunder 
shred the sky asunder 
Knowledge isn't wisdom 
deceit isn't error 
Some day, one day, near day 
you will know reality 
sealed fate finality 
Fair day, Great day 
when happiness will flow 
and spurts of flawless joy 
will ever after grow 
But now, yes now 
through the grime of our perversion 
through the crud of our corruption 
All we see 

is a dim mirror image 
I weep inside 

black tears of bitter sorrow 
wondering if hoping for 
the freedom on the morrow 
Shine sun, blue sky, you pale I note 
masks of men men of masks 
the truth will prove the goat 
When laughter peals from eels and seals 
and the throats of living slaves 
you'll see the servants are the kings 
and the chooser he who heals 
All we see is a dim mirror image 
But now, oh now, woe now 
hate like vomit fills 
the toilets of mens blinded souls 
the vomit chokes and kills 
Through clouds of haze, tobacco smoke 
Few flowers grow in sight 
nourished by a hidden and mysterious light 
they clutch at their existence 
die for their subsistence 
stand firm in love resistance 
They are echoes we are shadows 
with hope for solidity 
and a hold on serenity 
Out for now 
All we see is a 
dim mirror image of Him 
— Spencer Emison 



To Be A Bird 
Oh, to be a bird, 

To soar through the air 
On carefree wings, 

up above the clouds 
where the air is clean. 

He dives and swirls 
and rides the clouds, 

then glides on a gusty breeze. 
Oh, to be able to soar like that. 

To have that freedom 
and not worry about tomorrow, 

and the day after that. 
Oh, to be a bird. 
— G. Jane Owens

Durham 402 
A silver-grey sky melts into mountains 
Colored misty lapis. 

Barren trees, salt and pepper skeletons, imprint 
their loneliness across the never ending heights 
I look down on white stately houses that look ashen in the feeble light 
An occasional orange brick chimney, the only source of brilliance; 
the only thing resembling life. 

In the distance is a clothesline, bearer 
of faded denim jeans that flap silently in a cold breeze. 
It slightly contrasts the brown dying grass that surrounds it on all 
sides giving dimension. I can see a silvery street that 
makes it's way between other obstacles of man and nature; 
drenched by morning rain it reflects the heavens with its chilly 
dampness. 

A collage of Murky, muted hues — 
uninviting and foreboding; framed by an ivory window, 
high above. Making one the resisting ruler of all he 
surveys. 

The January wind moans through the window and fills the room 
but I feel safe here, even as the dull afternoon light 
filters through encompassing all it touches. 



Oenise Gallman 



"FAULKNER" 
As I Lay Dying in The Hamlet, 
before The Fire and the Hearth, 
the last rays of the Light in August 
was fading quickly. 
Through the window, I could see 
the Spotted Horses swatting at the 
Mosquitoes who had dared to invade 
their Sanctuary. 

As That Evening Sun was beginning 
to Go Down, Moses strolled by with 
A Rose for Emily. 

Down the street, The Old People were telling 
the story of Absolam, Absolam and 
The Bear that he killed one 
Delta Autumn Day. 
It seemed impossible that 
The Sound and the Fury of death 
could be so near. 

— Cynthia Partin

TWILIGHT SNOW 

She was dying. The bite of crisp winter air went unheeded as she stepped mechanically through puddles 
with thin crusts of ice. She was dying. Low grey clouds grew fuller waiting to shake the snow from their 
billows. She could almost feel the slow stain of death spreading with the disease through her body. It made her 
sick and she stumbled over a curb, jerking blindly across the street. Sharp icy gusts of wind rattled bare 
branches around her. All the tears she shed were inside, a stifled agony that swept her mercilessly with 
despair. 

She was well inside the park now, passing empty benches and frozen litter. At last she collapsed on the 
side of a fountain, weeping without reserve, washing the long dry basin with hot tears. 

That's how he found her, in the afternoon gloom, with the first large flakes of snow falling gently on her 
bowed shoulders. Her misery clung like a dark shroud around her. The length of her long blonde hair fell 
beautiful, as a curtain covering her down turned face. He forgot his own sorrow as he watched her, disco- 
vering that new channels of compassion had opened in him. He was glad to escape his own lonely meditations 
with the flood of concern that now awakened in his breast. 

Already society's taboos had largely lost their grip on him. How could he have remained unmoved with the 
knowledge of his own condition? No, he was transcedent. He did not fear her reaction. He wanted to console 
her, as he had wanted consolation all these weeks. These weeks devoid of mercy and relief. 

She looked up at his approach with red, and swollen eyes, tear stains like rivulets down her soft cheeks, 
silent. "Please, can I help you?" he asked gently. Bitterness engulfed her. She didn't hear the strange 
tenderness in his voice. She didn't look into his eyes of deep understanding. He was a stranger interrupting her 
misery, and she was outraged. Her rebuke was harsh. "Who the hell asked for your help? Stay away from 
me.", and sobs shook her once more. 

He wasn't prepared for her anger. It took his breath before he turned and walked away, his soul wrenched 
back into a lonely pilgrimage through anguish. 



44 



The snow began falling more heavily, swirling through the air and sticking to the ground. He brushed it from 
a nearby bench and sat heavily on peeling paint and rotting wood. She drew his thoughts. It had seemed to 
him hours that he looked into her tortured countenance, noting the fine long fingers with which she clutched her 
own shoulders. Her face was oval and lovely, with dark brown eyes. Her lips were full and pink under a fine 
almost sharp nose. Her beauty made his pain more acute. 

Around them the light was dimming as the sun continued it's hidden arc to the west. With his head buried in 
his hands he prayed for her, but silence was his answer as it had been for his prayers these past long weeks. 
It seemed his Lord had turned a deaf ear to his cries, but still he prayed, clinging like a desperate sailor to his 
last shreds of faith. 

Time led the sun docile and impotent closer to the horizon. The chill deepened, burning the tips of his 
fingers. Inside himself he beheld a darkness profound which sucked at him, a black hole of despair, scorning 
his fruitless plea to an unseen God. 

Just then he felt a soft touch on his shoulder like the fall of a heavy crystal of snow. She stood before him 
sorry, at temporary terms with her burden. They looked long at each other before she spoke, softly and with 
effort. "I'm sorry. I just found out something . . . terrible." She said the last word in a rush before the thought 
could flay her, and then went on firmly, resigned. "No one can help me now." Then she turned and walked 
away making small footprints in the smoothe white sheet. 

Twilight descended, rendering grey all things through the thick fall of snow. The fountain faded, the benches 
dulled into oblivion, but the land glowed white. "Wait," he rasped not loud enough for her to hear him, and then 
again, louder. "Wait" She stopped, a grey figure with no future, and waited with her back turned. When he 
reached her he laughed softly, a sound that defied the gloom. Startled she looked at him. The pale light made 
shadows of his eyes. She grew afraid. They were alone in the emptiness, empty in the loneliness. But he 
showed no signs of imbalance. Rather he gave her the impression of one containing complete control, 
tempered by humility, attained in a struggle against hopelessness. 

The wind gusted through the darkening park, making whirlwinds of white powder in the air. Within the bot- 
tomless wells of his eyes a light shone. She warmed herself in it as he spoke. "Come with me. I know a place 
where we can get out of the snow and talk." 

She followed him deeper into the darkness. They walked without touching into the quiet night. Black skies 
dropped white to the ground into an acid cold.

TWC's "Cinderella" soccer team has for the se- 
cond year missed the NAIA Nationals by one 
game. The Bulldogs finished the season with an 
"awesome" record of 16-4-1. They captured the 
TISA crown along with the District 24 Champion- 
ship. Coach Artie Goon was chosen Coach of the 
Year. 

Students and faculty were all very proud of the 
soccer dogs' successful season, and we all hope 
to see them win it all next year. Way to go Dogs!!

SPECIAL RECOGNITION 




The Nocatula would like to salute Rhonda Jones for a memorable contribution to TWC Athletics. Rhonda, a 
senior this year, is the first woman to spend four years on the Ladies' Basketball team in twenty some odd 
years. Rhonda has been a great asset to the Lady Bulldogs' efforts. Rhonda has devoted a great deal of time 
and effort to the women's basketball program and Wesleyan is very proud of her efforts and accomplishments. 
The Nocatula is very proud of you too, Rhonda. Keep up the good work.

Graduation 



Graduation was June 4, 1983. It was a 
beautiful late spring day. Excitement and 
anticipation could be seen on every face. 
Proud relatives beamed as their special 
scholar crossed the stage in Townsend 
Auditorium. 

Vera Coe, long time member of 
Wesleyan's Library Staff, was honored by 
President Naff for her years of dedication 
to TWC. Mrs. Coe retired this year and 
was presented a certificate for her many 
years of service. 

Four honorary degrees were given at 
commencement. Mrs. Nell Mohney of 
Kingsport was named Doctor of Humane 
Letters. Reverend Marvin Gass of Blount- 
ville was named Doctor of Divinity, as was 
Reverend Jack King of Maryville. Finally, 
Mr. Thomas Mayfield of Athens was 
named Doctor of Commercial Science. 

Guest speaker at TWC's 126th com- 
mencement was John M. Templeton of 
the Bahamas. Mr. Templeton is an investment counselor and 
President of Templeton World Fund Inc. and of Templeton 
Growth Fund Ltd. 

The Nocatula is very proud of those who received their 
degrees and those who will complete them in August.

Fellow students, 

What was myth, has now been made reality. Yes, the 1983 Nocatula really exists, despite the general 
disbelief and lack of faith. A very selected few supported the efforts for the 1983 Nocatula. People refused to 
have their pictures made, and organizations were no more help in this area because they believed that there 
would be no yearbook. They only managed to magnify my task. 

Before I go on, I would like to give credit where credit is due. Our advisor, Mr. Jim Tingen, was a great help 
and support in our effort. His belief in us was invaluable. He attended our meetings and did everything he could 
to help. Thank you, Mr. Tingen. 

Greg Chambers was kind enough to lend us some of the beautiful campus shots that are seen in the opening 
section of the book. His work can also be seen on pages 1 1 and 1 2. 

Warren Croft was a fine contributing photographer and helped to ease the load somewhat. His work can be 
seen on the following pages: 29, 34, 46, 52, 53, 60, 61, and 95. 

I would like to thank Yuko Yoshimura for her aide. Yuko designed the cover and also contributed the 
photographs of the Halloween Dance. She was a great emotional support also. 

Thanks almost seems insufficient for Laurie Bennett. Laurie assisted with the underclassmen section of the 
book. In addition, Laurie ran countless errands, made endless phone calls and was responsible for getting our 
photographers here from Knoxville. Laurie spent many hours with these people and had it not been for her there 
might not have been a book. I could never thank her enough. 

I also owe my mom and dad some thanks. After I was denied use of a school camera, they went and bought 
me one. They have quite a bit of money tied up in this book due to the camera and our phone bills. A lot of peo- 
ple felt they had room to air their gripes about the yearbook and were very quick to point a finger at someone 
else. If one thing could be blamed, it is lack of student participation — pure and simple. In order for the 
Nocatula to continue, the student body must HELP. They can do this by cooperating with photographers, join- 
ing the staff and generally by just being more supportive of the efforts made rather than reacting in a negative 
manner. If it's worth complaining about, it's worth taking the time to correct what's wrong. Don't waste your 
time talking, do something about it! I would also like to thank the following people just for showing some in- 
terest. They are: Scott and Spencer €mison, Dennis Cole, Debbie Taylor, Denna Middleton and Lee Ann Hicks. 
I'd also like to thank my room-mate for being there to hear me complain and for putting up with me and my 
typewriter. 

Your frenzied editor, 
Denise Gallman '83
