At last year's Homecoming Carnival, the
Pirate Parrot helped the IUP Concert
Dancers warm up for their performance.
The carnival takes place annually on the
lawn between Clark and Sutton. Informa-
tion about this year's Homecoming festivi-
ties, at which the Parrot will make a repeat
appearance, is contained in this issue.
From the President
An important goal of the university is to offer students an
opportunity to become acquainted with different peoples
and cultures and to broaden their views of the world. Let me
share with you some of the ways lUP has been striving to
"internationalize the university" to accomplish this goal.
At this writing, lUP has a number of national and interna-
tional exchange linkages, probably more than any other
school in the commonwealth. lUP belongs to both the
International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) and the
National Student Exchange (NSEP)-memberships that put
us in touch with over a hundred other colleges throughout
the nation and the world. Full-time students at lUP can
apply for one-year exchange placements in Africa, Asia,
Australia, the British Isles, Canada, Europe, or Latin Amer-
ica through ISEP or choose to study at sixty other partici-
pating colleges or universities in the United States through
NSEP. In addition, lUP has formal exchange agreements
with universities in Valladolid, Spain; Duisburg, Germany;
Nancy, France; Jallapa, Mexico; Pune, India; Salzburg,
Austria; Lucca, Italy; London, England; Cairo, Egypt; and
Shanghai, China. And the university is currently negotiat-
ing additional exchange agreements with universities in
Chile, in England, and in Italy.
lUP students accepted for one of these programs spend the
semester or year at the exchange institution at a tuition cost
similar to what they would pay to study on campus.
Exchange students pay their individual room, board, and
transportation fees as well.
These programs offer tremendous academic advantages to
our students. Those who study abroad may be in a "total
immersion" program where, enrolled as regular students,
they experience the culture and speak the language of their
host country. Or they may be in a study-abroad program
where instruction is available in English even though the
country is non-English speaking. Students taking advan-
tage of National Exchange Program opportunities can
study courses which will apply toward their major while
experiencing a different educational setting and developing
an increased awareness of the cultural and geographical
diversity within the United States. This semester, eighty-
two lUP students are studying at other institutions through
an exchange program, and 208 foreign students from fifty-
five countries are enrolled at lUP— a record number for the
The variety and flexibility inherent in these programs is
illustrated by the following examples: a student from
Alaska, who is enrolled at the University of Hawaii and who
spent the fall semester at the University of Montana, is
studying at lUP this spring; an Oregon student spent last
semester at lUP, her mother's alma mater; an lUP student
interested in studying Chinese is taking additional courses at
the University of Hawaii; an lUP geology major is spending
a year pursuing his major field of study in Australia; and six
lUP students are currently student teaching in England.
Through the Faculty Exchange Program, students who
remain on campus also have an opportunity to expand their
knowledge of another culture. This spring there are four
foreign exchange professors teaching at lUP: Dr. Harold
Lutchman from the University of Guyana; Dr. Mary Mas-
soud from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt; Professor
Zhang Wei Lang from the Shanghai Foreign Language
Institute, China; and Dr. Prabhakar R. Karmarkar from the
University of Poona, Pune, India.
lUP has had a Center for Faculty Exchange since 1978 and
serves as the clearinghouse for faculty exchanges within the
State System of Higher Education. Currently, four lUP
professors are studying or teaching abroad: Dr. Harry
Craig is at Ain Shams University, Dr. Gopal Kulkarni and
Curtis Paddock are at the University of Poona, and Dr.
Tom Goodrich is a Fulbright scholar for the year in Istan-
bul, Turkey. lUP also serves as the Center for the Associa-
tion of Overseas Educators, whose members, former Ful-
bright professors, provide orientation for professors going
This past January, I spent two weeks in Egypt visiting with
officials of several Egyptian universities to explore the pos-
sibilities of extending faculty and student exchange pro-
grams. Such exchanges would provide special opportunities
for our faculty and students to learn more about the Middle
East~an area that plays an increasingly important role in
The exploration of different cultures, new geographic set-
tings, and diverse academic programs is a significant part of
higher education. We believe it's important to encourage
lUP students to study foreign languages and to take advan-
tage of programs that can extend their world understanding.

lUP is OSHA's Friend
lUP's safety sciences department has
been selected as the Occupational Safety
and Health Administration (OSHA)
consulting agency for the state of Penn-
sylvania. In this capacity, the depart-
ment will provide official advice on
health and safety in the workplace to
hundreds of the state's employers this
The project is funded with a grant
of $519,900 in federal OSHA monies
matched by $57,700 from the state. It
will operate under the terms of an
agreement between OSHA and the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
According to Robert E. McClay
Jr., chairman of lUP's safety sciences
department, seven professionals have
been hired to serve as full-time occupa-
tional safety and health consultants and
the department's eight faculty members
are working part time on the project.
Faculty member Robert Soule has been
named project manager.
SSHE Selects lUP
Alumnus As First Head
James H. McCormick ■'SQ is to be the
first permanent chancellor of Pennsyl-
vania's System of Higher Education
(SSHE). Announcing Dr. McCormick's
selection in March, SSHE Board of
Governors' Chairman F. Eugene Dixon,
Jr., said, "... after a nationwide search,
we have found a 'diamond' in our own
The Chancellor Search Committee
reviewed sixty-seven applications for
the position. There were seven finalists.
Dr. McCormick began serving as
interim chancellor on July 1, 1983, the
start-up date for the state's new system
of higher education. Since that time, he
has assumed what he terms an "advo-
cacy role" for the system's fourteen uni-
versities and their constituencies.
Dr. McCormick took a leave from
the presidency of Bloomsburg Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania to fill the interim
position. His ten-year tenure there,
1973 to 1983, was highlighted by growth
in the student population, the academic
programs, and the physical plant. He is
also credited with the initiation of suc-
cessful strategic planning at the univer-
According to Dixon, the chancel-
lor has a three-vear contract, effective
July 1, 1984, to June 30, 1987, at
$70,000 per year. He will have the same
benefits and entitlements currently held
by the system's university presidents.

Three new programs are part of the
educational offerings in lUP's food and
nutrition department. They include a
food and nutrition science major, a food
service and lodging management major,
and a graduate program in food and
According to Ronald E. Simkins
'55, department chairperson, the new
programs were four years in develop-
ment. Each fills a gap in the depart-
Based on an interdisciplinary ap-
proach, the food and nutrition science
major gives students background in
chemistry, physics, and food research.
"Food and nutrition science is a popular
concept now," Simkins said, "and this
allows us to attract students who here-
tofore may not have considered lUP. It
gives us a valuable recruiting tool."
Similarly, the food service and lodg-
ing management major fills a demand
not currently met by many institutions.
"Some community colleges offer asso-
ciate degrees in lodging or hotel man-
agement," he said, "but until now, there
were very few places in Pennsylvania for
students to get a bachelor's degree."
The master's program, in which
about thirty students are already enrol-
led, is designed for students with bache-
lor's degrees in food and nutrition or
related areas. Before its establishment,
graduate students in the food and nutri-
tion area had to enroll in the Graduate
School's Professional Growth program.
"In the past, we had graduate cours-
es but no program," Simkins said.
Dr. Chancy R. Rawleigh of lUP's
sociology-anthropology department is
serving an one-year term as president of
the Pennsylvania Sociology Society.
The organization has 3,600 members.
After more than twenty-three years at
lUP, Dr. Esko E. Newhill retired from
the sociology-anthropology department
faculty in December. He continues to
live in Indiana.
Dr. Mary Renck Jalongo, a faculty
member in llIP's elementary education
department, was named Pennsylvania's
Outstanding Young Woman of 1983.
The most prestigious ROTC honor pre-
sented by the Association of the United
States Army was given last winter to
lUP's Tenth Pennsylvania Company.
Designated "most active company," the
lUP ROTC group was recognized dur-
ing the AUSA national convention in
Washington. Colonel Willard L. Rob-
inson 70 and more than thirty students
and cadets from lUP received briefings
during the convention from Army
Secretary John O. Marsh.
The American College Personnel Asso-
ciation recently elected Dr. John D.
Welty, lUP vice-president for student
and university affairs, to the office of
treasurer. With more than seven thou-
sand members, the association is the
largest national professional organiza-
tion for student affairs.
Gamma Xi, the lUP chapter of Phi
Gamma Nu, the honorary business fra-
ternity, has been recognized for having
the highest grade point average in the
nation for the fourth time. The chapter,
which had a combined grade point
average of 3.52 out of a possible 4.0.
competed with chapters from more than
fiftv academic institutions nationwide.

Board Plays Big Part
For any organization to be successful, it
must be manned by a crew able to steer
it toward its goals and purposes.
The twenty-four-member Board of
Directors of the Foundation for lUP is
responsible for the overall operation of
the foundation, according to Anthony
Lenzi '54, executive director.
A large part of the board's work
centers on assisting in fund raising cam-
paigns, Lenzi said. This includes volun-
teering for and serving as chairpersons
for campaigns, working to get others
involved in campaigns, and helping to
establish target groups and lists of
According to Lenzi, the success of
the foundation's activities is, in large
part, dependent on the guidance and
assistance of the board members.
An 5- member executive com-
mittee heads the board, giving approval
on policy matters, the operating budget,
and committee assignments.
Committee members are board
President Edward Mackey, a vice-presi-
dent with Advest Inc.; Vice-President

Company; and Charles Davis '34, a
retired faculty member of the lUP
The board consists of six members
nominated by the IUP Council of Trus-
tees, six sponsors from the President's
Council, six faculty members, and six
alumni named upon recommendation
of the IUP Alumni Assocation.

In addition, the board also has
three nonvoting trustees' liaisons. These
liaisons, IUP Council of Trustees mem-
bers Samuel Jack, John McCue, and
Ted Fick '84, keep the trustees updated
on the actions of the foundation board.

The Retired Faculty Spotlight for June
is on Joy Mahachek.
Dr. Mahachek, "Joy" to everyone
who knows her, came to Indiana in 1921
directly from graduation at the Univer-
sity of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.
The university was one of the first to
offer a special program in the supervi-
sion of student teaching.
Joy supervised student teachers at
Indiana State Normal School from
1921 to 1923 and then took a leave to
complete graduate work at Columbia
and at Pittsburgh. When she returned
to Indiana in 1927, she began a distin-
guished career as a professor of mathe-
matics, as chairperson of the mathemat-
ics department, and finally as co-
ordinator of secondary education. Her
thirty-nine-year career at Indiana was
marked by total professionalism, excel-
lent teaching, and a commitment to the
improvement of teacher education and
of the institution itself.
"We did not feel that we were dis-
criminated against because we were
women," Joy said in a recent letter.
"Perhaps that was because the man-
dated salary schedule of Pennsylvania
provided equal salary for men and
women doing the same work."
Joy worked for six presidents (all
of them men) at Indiana, from Dr.
Keith to Dr. Pratt. She said she is
"proud of the many mathematics stu-
dents who have become teachers of
grade school, high school, and college
mathematics or college administrators
as deans or presidents''

Keith to Dr. Pratt. She said she is
"proud of the many mathematics stu-

In the fifties, she noted, much of
her time was spent "finding good mathe-

Joy came to Indiana "when there
were only two miles of paved road out
of town in each direction."
"Perhaps with this length of ser-
vice." she said, "1 ought to be a hundred

active. I drive to do shopping and
errands and trips to Minneapolis when
weather permits. I enjoy making out

bara Barr Thompson 70.
Biographies of all the award win-
ners appear on the following pages.
Dr. Margaret A. Smith, who re-
ceived her master's degree from lUP in
1971, is Pennsylvania's deputy secretary
and commissioner for basic education.
In talking about her role, she said, "This
is a tremendously challenging time to be
in education. There are now many
opportunities for improving education,
but the total educational community
needs to cooperate. When Governor
Thornburgh announced his agenda for
increasing student achievement in Penn-
sylvania, it became my responsibility to
help implement that priority." In a var-
ied and impressive career. Dr. Smith
has been a public school teacher, coun-
selor, and administrator. Prior to
accepting her state post in 1983, she was
superintendent for three years of the
Saucon Valley (Pa.) School District in
eastern Pennsylvania. She has taught
graduate educational administration
courses at Lehigh University and at
Penn State, where she earned her doctor-
ate. Dr. Smith received her early
schooling in Cochranton, Pennsylvania,
and earned a bachelor's degree at what
is now Edinboro University. Active in
many professional organizations, she
has served as president of the Pennsyl-
vania Association of Pupil Personnel
Administrators and was one of twenty-
five selected for a national workshop
sponsored by the American Association
of School Administrators and the Ford
Foundation on "Helping Women Ad-
vance Professionally." In the four areas
of the state where she has worked, Dr.
Smith was active in community affairs,
particularly those that involved young
people. School districts in these areas of
the state with which she was associated
were Saucon Valley, Wissahickon, Avon
Grove, and DuBois. In the last. Dr.
Smith was, among other things, presi-
dent of the Drug Prevention Council,
director of a youth employment service,
and president of the Youth Center board.
Robert Reynolds '48
Robert Reynolds '48 is board
chairman and president of Wallace M.
Reid Company, a large commercial and
personal lines insurance agency in
Pittsburgh. For ten years, he was a
member of the lUP Board of Trustees
(now called the Council of Trustees),
serving for part of that time as vice-
president and secretary of the board. He
also served as president of the Associa-
tion of Trustees of Pennsylvania State
Colleges and University. A lecturer for
ten years in Pitt's School of Business
Administration, he holds the Chartered
Property and Casualty Underwriter
designation and has a diploma as an
Associate in Risk Management. Mr.
Reynolds has been extraordinarily
active in community affairs. He is
board chairman of both the West Penn
Motor Club (AAA) and the West Penn
Insurance Agency, an Executive Com-
mittee member of Syria Temple, and a
board member of the Pittsburgh Athletic
Association, Christian Associates of
Southwestern Pittsburgh, Syria Temple
Improvement Association, Christian
Associates, Pittsburgh Baptist Associa-
tion, and other groups. When he headed
the national independent agents'group,
Mr. Reynolds was the subject of a long
feature article in Independent Agent
magazine. The writer found the follow-
ing key to Mr. Reynolds's effectiveness
in his professional and personal life;
"While he expres'ses himself forcefully
when he thinks he is right, he is quick to
admit fault when he believes he has been
wrong, and he's a man whose word can
be relied on. What he has said he will
do, he will do if at all possible."
Annalee Rosenswie Henderson '57
Annalee Rosenswie Henderson '57
teaches mathematics at State College
(Pa.) High School. In 1983, she was
among the first winners of the Presiden-
tial Awards for Excellence in Science
and Mathematics. One science and one
math teacher in each state are selected in
the awards program, which is funded by
the National Science Foundation and
includes a $5,000 grant to each teacher's
school and an introduction to the Presi-
dent. According to Mrs. Henderson,
"The nicest thing about the award was
that you had to be nominated by a peer.
Think about it. President Reagan really
doesn't know what kind of teacher 1 am.
The honor was to be recognized by the
people I work with." Mrs. Henderson
has a master's degree from Penn State
and taught there for several years in the
mathematics department and in the bus-
iness college. She accepted her position
at the high school in 1973 and currently

placement calculus course, and two
other senior courses. Active in the Penn-
sylvania Council of Teachers of Mathe-
matics, Mrs. Henderson was editor of
the PCTM Journal for four years. She
has also edited the council's conference
newsletter, served as a delegate-at-large
on the executive board, and worked
with various committees and presented
sessions at conferences. In 1982, she
received an award for her outstanding
contributions to the council. A member
of Altrusa International, Mrs. Hender-
son will assume the presidency of her
local branch in June. Altrusa sponsors

Jenkinson '37 grew up in Indiana County
and later worked and studied in Detroit,
she went to England in 1943 and has
lived there ever since. A YWCA staff
member, she was assigned upon her
arrival to Sheffield, a city that had been
heavily damaged by German bombs.
There she met her late husband, John,
whom she married in 1946. With the

YWCA of Great Britain. In recognition
of the work Mrs. Jenkinson had done
on behalf of the city of Sheffield, she
was appointed a magistrate in 1966.
(Such appointments are made by the
Lord Chancellor at the recommenda-
tion of local committees and are relin-
quished by the appointees on their
seventieth birthdays.) In addition to her
YWCA activities, Mrs. Jenkinson assis-
ted her husband, an architect, in county
and professional work. She has also

The Name Of the Game Was Change
Editor's Note: Angela Gentile is a 1984
graduate of WP from Beaver, Pennsyl-
vania. In the past few years, she has
been one of a small but growing number
of women sportswriters. The piece that
follows is Angela 's retrospective view of
recent lUP sports history.
When I was a writer for my high school
newspaper, the sports beat was last on
the list of my favorite assignments.
Three years of covering sports at lUP
have changed all that.
In my sophomore year of college, I
needed a work-study job. A notice in
the Daily Bulletin told me that the
Sports Information office needed some-
one to cover women's cross country.
The rest, as they say, is history.
And what a history! An accurate
one-word description of the past three
years in lUP sports would be "change."
A major change occurred when
Frank Cignetti '60 was named athletic
director and subsequently designated
football, men's and women's basketball,
and women's gymnastics as emphasis
sports. The goal was to make lUP
highly competitive within NCAA Div-
I covered the gymnastics team and
watched the new coach at that time, Jan
Anthony (a three-time Ail-American
from Penn State), build a program dur-
ing her two-year stay at lUP. In 1982,
she coached the Lady Braves to a win in
the AlAW Division II Eastern region-
al. They finished third at the AIAW
national championship and boasted two
The following year, Anthony coach-
ed the Lady Braves to a fourth-place
finish at NCAA Division II regionals
and Chris Beck to three Ail-American
honors. In the meantime, she arranged
tri-state meets for young gymnasts to
help promote lUP. When she left the
university to accept a head coach posi-
tion at Division I Illinois State, Anthony
left a well-established program to Dan
Kendig, a former assistant gymnastics
coach at Nebraska.
Some of the highlights: gymnast
Chris Beck winning six Ail-American
honors; the 1983 women's cross country
team winning the Pennsylvania Confer-
ence championship and remaining un-
defeated until regional competition; the
1983-84 gymnastics team winning the
Pennsylvania Conference championship
for the first time; the women's basket-
ball team winning the western division
of the Pennsylvania Conference; and
basketball player Cindy Davies's invita-
tion to try out for the Olympic basket-
Along with the new sports empha-
sis came a sleek new lUP sports logo of
a mounted Indian armed with a spear.
What some may call a loss but oth-
ers will insist merely reflected the senti-
ments of the time was the fate of a pro-
posed increase in the Activity Fee for
the purpose of adding funds to the
athletic program. In a nonbinding ref-
erendum, I-card holders turned down
the idea in the largest voter turnout ever
recorded on campus. A study I con-
ducted for my Sports Journalism class
found that students were against the
increase because they were struggling to
pay bills. However, since the vote was
not binding, a partial increase was
enacted. Controversy over the issue
eventually cooled from a boil to a slow
In spite of the changes of the past
few years, I found there are some things
about sports at lUP— and sports in
general— that are eternal. There are con-
test losses by a point or two and others
where lUP was behind from the start. In
most cases, the coaches say that the
team tried hard and that just a little
more drive could have altered the result.
Then there are the wins— the most
celebrated events. Wins make everyone
happy: athletes and fans alike can go
home saying, "We won." No matter if it
is a cross country meet with a handful of
spectators or a football game with a
filled stadium, an enthusiasm for win-
ning pervaded every lUP sports event I
Overall, the things I liked best
about lUP sports were that most ath-
letes wanted to compete because of their
love of sports and that most athletes had
a lot to say: the "dumb jock" is a dumb
Now that I am graduating, a lot of
people ask if I would like to be a
sportswriter or a sports information
director. I always say yes, because
gradually women are being recognized
and hired in the field. Speakers in my
classes have said there is going to be a
need for more women sports writers in
order to represent what the speakers call
"the woman's point of view." This may
or may not be true. I will soon find out.
Kendig strengthened the lUP pro-
gram, developing an excellent practice
area in the auxiliary gym and building a
vault runway platform. He coached the
Lady Braves to their first Pennsylvania
Conference championship and to a
fourth place at the NCAA Division II
regionals and assisted Chris Beck in
winning three more AU-American
lUP Women's Sports
History: Short But Sweet
More change: lUP's entire women's
sports program moved from AIAW
Division III to NCAA Division II. A
number of the coaches were sad to see
the association go, because of its con-
cern for women athletes and the changes
that would result from being part of the
NCAA. However, the lUP coaches and
athletes have adjusted well. Many of
the teams lUP competed against in the
AIAW also had to move to NCAA Div-
ision II. The Lady Braves have done
well and along the way have defeated
some Division I teams.
As was mentioned in an earlier issue of
Oak Leaves, the Pittsburgh Press last
fall published a survey of college and
university women's sports programs in
the tri-state area.
The survey showed lUP to be the
leader among all such programs in
terms of number of sports sponsored
(ten), of emphasis placed on them, and
of ambitions harbored for their success.
Varsity-level women's sports at lUP
began in 1971-72, when teams were
fielded in basketball, fencing, tennis,
and volleyball. Field hockey was
added in 1972-73, and gymnastics com-
petition commenced the following year.
Starting in 1977-78, swimming, track
and field, softball, and cross country
were added, one each year. No sport
has ever been dropped.
Tennis, volleyball, basketball, gym-
nastics, track and field, and cross coun-
try all report overall winning records,
with tennis at 133-41 and cross country
at 1 5-3 (counting only dual to quadran-
gular meets) leading the percentages.
These two have also produced unde-
feated seasons, as has volleyball.
Individuals in women's swimming,
field hockey, track and field, and gym-
nastics have achieved All-American
honors, while volleyball star Diane
McCormick was named to the Olym-
pics and other national teams.
National recognition also came to
lUP when it hosted the 1981 AIAW
Division II National Championship
Women's Track and Field Meet. lUP
through the years developed strong ties
with the AIAW, dividing its teams be-
tween Divisions II and III, but as of
1982-83, it entered all ten of its teams in
NCAA Division II competition.
In 1982-83, the university also decid-
ed to designate two women's sports,
basketball and football, as its "emphasis
Through all these changes, the leader-
ship of Ruth Podbielski as associate
director of intercollegiate athletics has
been a constant, and her coaching col-
leagues have offered similar stability
and experience. Coaches of six of the
ten teams have served since the initia-
tion of their respective varsity sports-
Nancy Barthelemy in fencing and vol-
leyball, Mary Louise Eltz in tennis,
Kofie Montgomery in swimming, and Ed
Fry in track and field cross country.
Kenny Moure, second from left, was honored both as an dhlelic and an academic Ali-
American at lUP's annual dinner thai recognizes such sluden'-athletes. The dinner was in
