Introducing Heart Mate. 

The state of the art 

for a healthy heart. And body. 

The Heart Mate aerobic conditionins 
system. Advance technolosy and design 
make it the ultimate form of 
aerobic exercise. 

Aerobic conaitioning has always been the 
best way to strengthen your heart and control 
weight more easily And according to many 
leading cardiologists, it can help reduce stress 
and make you less susceptible to heart disease. 

Unfortunately most forms of aerobic 
exercise can either injure you, bore you, or 
prematurely fatigue you— before you really get 
into shape The answer is Heart Mate. 

Heart Mate virtually eliminates the risk of 
injur/ common to running and most sports. By 
suspending your body weight. Heart Mate 
frees your joints and spine from the dangers of 
continual pounding. 

Only Heart Mate has a built-in entertainment 
center— complete with TV and AM/FM radio to 

keep you company during long workouts. And Heart Mate's 
computer provides brief, perfectly-timed intervals of rest 
that prevent the early muscle fatigue common to most other 
exercises It allows you to workout longer and get the 
benefits of sustained aerobics, plus greater calorie burnup. 
Heart Mate also provides you with a constant 
update on your heart rate and calorie consumption, 
and, what's even more important, it keeps you 
motivated by showing you your fitness improvement 
on a day-to-day basis. 

In fact, ever/ last detail of the Heart Mate 
design — created by a major aerospace company— 
IS perfectly "right" . . from the anatomically-engineered 
frame to the electronic signal that reminds you it's time 
for your daily workout. 

Heart Mate is much more than an exercise bike. 
It's an integrated system that gets you into true 
aerobic shape— efficiently scientifically and safely.

On the Cover 

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 
world affairs. 

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.

Growth Rings 

lUP is OSHA's Friend 
in Pennsylvania 

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.

A Delectable 
Department Offers 

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- 
ment's curriculum. 

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 
at Foundation 

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 
Robert Duggan, president of the Sav- 
ings and Trust Company of Pennsylva- 
nia; Secretary Joan Waldo '52, an Indi- 
ana resident; Treasurer Christopher 
Knowlton '69(M), executive director of 
the lUP Student Cooperative Associa- 
tion; Warner Tobin '5 1 , director of the 
lUP University School; Thelma Gold- 
strohm, an Indiana resident; William 
Kegel, president of the R and P Coal 
Company; and Charles Davis '34, a 
retired faculty member of the lUP 
music department. 


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. 

The Council of Trustees represen- 
tatives are Duggan, Kegel, William 
Leasure, Ron Ruble, and Joseph Ko- 
valchick, with a sixth to be appointed. 
President's Council sponsors are 
Mackey, Waldo, Goldstrohm, Paul 
McGregor '34, and Fred Kunkle, with a 
sixth position to be filled. 

Current alumni representatives are 
Davis, Lenzi, Tobin, Trevor Hadley '37, 
Mary Jane Tuttle '47, and Mary Helen 
Small '66. The faculty representatives 
are Dominic Intili, Anita Henry, Dale 
Landon, Judith Moorhead 74(M), Robert 
Boldin, and Richard Chamberlin. 

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. 

Retired Faculty 

by S. Trevor Hadley 37 

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''

"proud of the many mathematics stu-

In the fifties, she noted, much of 
her time was spent "finding good mathe- 
matics faculty to expand the depart- 
ment. Many of those teachers are still in 
the department. I'm glad I lived through 
the developing years of lUP. I fear that 
I might find some of its new problems 

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 
years old but not quite. 1 am physically 
active. I drive to do shopping and 
errands and trips to Minneapolis when 
weather permits. I enjoy making out 
taxes for the elderly-some less elderly

submitted by alumni and other lUP 
community members. The 1984 Alumni 
Awards Committee comprised Richard 
A. Fiscus 78, Dr. John E. Frank '58, 
Muriel Smith Hostetler '41, Mary Park 
Jack '36, Sharon L. Santus 73, and 
Robert C. Shoemaker '60. 

A similar selection process was 
used for the senior awards, which are 
sponsored by the Indiana County Chap- 
ter of the lUP Alumni Association. 
Serving on the seniors' selection com- 
mittee were Cheryl Foytick Barry '81, 
Arnold J. Haberkorn, Jr. '65, and Bar- 
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 
teaches two honors courses, an advanced 
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 
the Astra Club, a service-social club for 
girls, which she advises at State College 
High School. 

A professor of education emeritus 
at Westminster College, Dr. Joseph R. 
Henderson '39 retired in 1980 as chair- 
person of the college's education de- 
partment and director of its graduate 
program. Dr. Henderson began his 
career at Westminster, which is located 
in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, in 
1956. He is a native of Elders Ridge, 
Pennsylvania, and served as a teacher 
and principal in Indiana County Schools 
until 1941, when he became a high 
school principal in Kentucky. World 
War II took him to New York City, 
where he was an instructor in a U.S. 
Army school for three years. Returning 
to Kentucky in 1945, he directed the 
Annville Institute for three years. From 
1948 to 1956, he chaired the social 
science department and taught sociol- 
ogy at Kentucky's Union College. Dr. 
Henderson, who received his M.A. and 
Ed.D. degrees from New York Univer- 
sity, has received many honors and 
served in many consultative roles in the 
education field. He has been a visiting

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- 
ision II. 

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- 
ball team. 

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 
April in Sutton Hall's Blue Room. Moore was named to both the Associated Press "small 
college "national team and the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic
