Take a Closer Look 

It's everywhere — the har- 
mony of young people and new 
ideas playing against a back- 
ground of strong tradition. Gen- 
erations of college students 
have played and studied beside 
Eckie's Pond; moreover, young 
adults daily pass by the 1932 
"Miss. State College" sign at 
the entrance to the campus. 
They pass by proudly, knowing 
that their Mississippi State Uni- 
versity, with an enrollment of 
11,500, is the largest university 
in the state.

MSU — home of the Bull- 
dogs, the Left Field Lounge, 
fine wines, and Edam cheese. 
Bulldog supporters take pride 
in their university's dairy prod- 
ucts produced in part by stu- 
dents — ice cream, milk, 
cheeses — and take special 
pride in the Edam cheese, sold 
only at Christmas and Easter to 
those who order many months 
in advance.

:ter how widely recognized are MSU's 
olastic achievements, research and par- 
. The entire glory and reputation of the 
ool is borne on the shoulders of a small 
up of maroon-clad warriors fighting their 

ep rallies must be held, tickets must be 

purchased, transportation to the game site 
must be arranged, and a parking place must 
be found before one can see the game, 
though. "I waited in line almost three hours 
to get my tickets during ticket week," sighed 
one coed. One Sigma Chi man arrives at the 
stadium an hour early "to get a good park- 
ing place and a good seat." 

Post-game partying is a tradition adhered 
to whether the game is lost or won. What dif- 
ference does it make if we lose? "Almost 
none," the tried-and-true football fans will 
answer. "We'll win next time. In the mean- 
time — cheers!"

their owners. A bicycling fan is

I ley, peas, beans, squash!" 
A&M cow-pullers! 
Yes, by gosh!" 

This cheer, cited by Dr. John Bettersworth in his book, People's Col- 
lege, was Mississippi A&M's answer to taunts of "cow college" at ath- 
letic events in the 19th century. Since then, the cowbell has become 
MSU's symbol of fierce pride in her agricultural heritage. 

But in March 1975 the Southeastern Conference voted to ban "artifi- 
cial noisemakers" — including cowbells — from all games played 
between SEC teams. This action was triggered by Auburn's Coach 
Ralph (Shug) Jordan, who claimed his players could not hear the quar- 
terback's signals over the clanging of MSU's bells. 

The storm of protests by MSU fans was overwhelming. Senator John 
Paul Moore of Starkville even introduced a bill to the Mississippi legisla- 
ture making it illegal to prohibit artificial noisemakers at any sports event 
in Mississippi despite any "silly" rules to the contrary. Moore's bill won 
unanimous approval in the Senate, but died in a subcommittee in the 
House after being called "the most ridiculous piece of legislation . . . 
before the house in eight years." 

The Bulldog fans remained undaunted however — the SA launched a 
drive to find a substitute for the cowbell. The Bookstore's 96 remaining 
bells were taken off the shelves, welded, polished, plated with gold, put 
under glass domes, and sold as collector's items. But the greatest evi- 
dence that the cowbell ban didn't dampen MSU's spirit can be seen at 
football games. SEC game or not, cowbells clang as loudly as ever on 
the Bulldog side of the stadium.

Eating Out: Part of the fun, 
and expense, of college life 

ut the building's so beautiful," protested 
Stephen Essig, architecture student, as he munched on 
a dry corn muffin in MSU's cafeteria. "Just appreciate 
the aesthetics of the room and you can almost forget 
what you're eating." 

The cafeteria and the Union and Bulldog grills have 
been the butt of many student jokes. But more students 
were served by MSU Food Services in fall 1978 then 
ever before, according to James Levine, director of 
MSU Food Services. 

"Our goal is to serve more people faster at lower 
prices," said Levine. "Students are our first priority and 
our larger goal is to serve anyone who wants to eat." 

A small variety of restaurants is situated near cam- 
pus, however, for those who cannot recognize the caf- 
eteria's new menu additions, such as veal parmesan 
and "real" Italian lasagna. In Starkville, Oby's offers a 
taste of New Orleans, the House of Kong caters to stu- 
dents who enjoy Chinese cuisine, and Jack Straw Cafe, 

reminiscent of Greenwich Village, frequently features 
aspiring guitarists and displays student artwork. The 
Possum Town Depot in Columbus, fashioned from a 
deserted train station, is renowned for its gourmet sea- 
food and oyster bar. 

For those with little time and money to spend, ham- 
burger and pizza joints are the best bet. "Burger Chef is 
my mainstay at the end of the month," said a Cresswell 
freshman. "I can buy a 52e hamburger and triple its 
size at the Works Bar." One trailer park resident vows 
that Pizza Hut keeps him alive through weekends. "I 
start partying about 5:00 Friday evening, and by mid- 
night I'm awfully glad to see the pizza delivery car pull- 
ing up." 

When all else fails, even dorm students usually have 
all-purpose popcorn poppers smuggled away with a 
can of soup. And there's always the Union Grill. Or the 
cafeteria — it really is a beautiful building.

Jreat Friday Exodus 


Ww anna go out to lunch?" one MSU 
;retary asked another on the phone one Friday 

Are you crazy, on Friday?" the second one 
lied. "Every student on campus goes home 
Friday. By the time we make it off campus, our 
ch hour will be over!" 

1SU, according to some students, is becoming 
suitcase college." In other words, too many 
m residents are considering home to be their 
m residence and they "live out of their suit- 
es" during the week in the dorm. Not so, oth- 
argue; the traffic's worse on Fridays this year 

because MSU's enrollment has increased, not 
because a larger percentage of students go 

Special alliances often develop between stu- 
dents who habitually stay on campus during 
weekends. "My best friend in the whole dorm is a 
girl I never met until one weekend when we met 
in the elevator," said a Cresswell freshman. On 
the other hand, students who ride home together 
on Fridays also become fast friends. "I know of a 
couple whose families were always 'feuding' in 
Indianola," said one Hightower resident. He 
laughed, anticipating. "There's going to be some 
very loud fireworks sounding off in between their 
wedding bell chimes!" 

Students go home on weekends for different 
reasons. Some general agriculture majors go 
home to their fathers' farm on weekends; many 
students go home because they have weekend 
jobs. Others go home to "get a decent meal," to 
see their boyfriend or girlfriend, or to participate 
in special family or hometown events. And some 
do go home every weekend to see their parents. 
"I am very impressed," said Margaret Estes, 
vice-president of academic affairs, "by the close 
relationships between Mississippi State students 
and their parents." Impressing, yes. So is the 
number of cars leaving campus during lunch 
hour on Friday.

The egg toss was one of the events partic- 
ipated in by MSU's nine sororities and two 
MUW social clubs during the twenty-first 
annual Sigma Chi Derby Day competition. 
The sororities raised $30,844 for the Chil- 
dren's Cancer Fund, the LeBonheur Chil- 
dren's Hospital in Memphis, and the leuke- 
mia-stricken child of Louis Grubbs, an ex- 
football player from MSU.

Married Life Is a Time of Adjustment 

A Candid Interview With One of State's "Student Families" 


Barry and Cheryl Dent and their 2- 
year old son, Jay, compose one of 
268 families living in University Vil- 
lage, also known as "the married 
student apartments." Barry and 
Cheryl enjoy being near other stu- 
dent families and like the Village's 
on-campus location; other stu- 
dents, however, complain that the 
apartments are "boring," have 
roaches, and don't allow residents 
to keep pets. University Village has 
a waiting list of students who want 
to move in, however. The apart- 
ments are popular because rental 
rates are low and the Village has its 
own laundromat and nursery. 

I was the basic C student," said Barry 
Dent, business management major, "until I 
married Cheryl and we had our son, Jay. I've 
become serious about my school work 
since then — I've got more responsibility 
and fewer distractions now." 

Barry, 24, Cheryl, 27, and Jay, 2, are one 
of many "student families" living at MSU's 
University Village. The Dents echo an opin- 
ion held by most of the married students 
interviewed; the popular myth that it's 
"hard on a marriage" for one partner to go 
to college just isn't true. 

"Sure you have to make adjustments," 
said Cheryl, "but you'll have to do that any- 
way unless you want to live alone — and 
who wants to do that?" Cheryl definitely 
does not resent working while Barry's 
going to class — in fact she found it boring 
to stay home, so she found a part-time job 
at an Episcopalian church which "gets her 
out of the house." Besides, she says, 
"Barry works, too — 15 hours a week at 
Suttle Dormitory's weightlifting room." 

Barry who "loves having a family to 
come home to," says the only disadvan- 
tage of fatherhood is that he can't study 
while Jay is awake. Again it's a matter of 
adjustment — "I study at work and from 
about 9:00 to whenever I get through — 
which is sometimes in the wee hours," he 
said. "But that's not hard on me — I've 
always been a night person." 

Both Barry and Cheryl, however, realize 
that "marriage isn't for every student." 
Cheryl warns that "Marriage is a big step 
— you have to learn to accept small things 

you dislike about your partner, otherwise 
they get bigger." Barry agreed, adding that 
"having children especially calls for a high 
degree of flexibility — you have to work 
your schedule around theirs." 

Another resident of University Village 
temporarily stopped her education when 
her son was born. "You have to change 
your entire outlook — you have to forget 
everything you ever thought about getting 
out of college as fast as you can," she 
said. "More and more I'm hearing about 
women who go back to college after their 
children are raised — and becoming very 
successful. That's my plan — right now I 
don't want to do anything but care for my 

Some married students, though, 
wouldn't recommend getting married if it 
could be delayed. "My wife has had to 
make a lot of allowances since I came back 
to get my master's degree — now she 
works, does all the housework, and com- 
plains that she never gets to see me any- 
more since I'm always studying." He 
sighed. "All I can tell her is that she'll be 
glad someday — and I'm determined that 
she will be. She's done a fine job of adjust- 

Making adjustments, at least in the 
Dents' case, paid off handsomely. "We 
wouldn't trade family life for anything," 
said Barry. "Everything's better if you have 
someone to share it with," added Cheryl. 
"Being with my family on Christmas Day 
makes up for anything I may have had to 
give up in the past."

feels lucky to have found a part- 
time job that allows her to leave the

time to finish housekeeping duties. 
Jay, she said, enjoys playing with 
the children at the nursery.

"It's important for Jay to spend time 
with me — it would be awful to tell a 
child every night to be quiet so 
daddy can study."

The Pros and Cons of 
Off-Campus Living 

■ could never live in the dorm again," 
said Joe Sanders, resident of Longview Street in 
Starkville. "I would open up my closet there 
where all my clothes were and at the same time 
see my kitchen (pop-tarts and a popcorn popper) 
on the same shelf with my bathroom (towels, 
soap and shampoo). And I had to share that tiny 
room with another person." 

Debra Simpson, a junior pre-med student, said 
she moved off campus because she "loves being 
independent." Debra moved into an old recon- 
verted beauty shop on University Drive, and she 
and her roommate "painted and scraped wallpa- 
per and cleaned till our arms nearly fell off," she 

Off campus dwellers cite many different rea- 
sons for living in town — "I love to cook and you 
can't do that in the dorm," "I need QUIET to 
study," "I couldn't part with Rover." But apart- 
ment dwellers will be the first to tell you that 
apartment living is not all romance and roses.

For one thing, the responsibilities that 
•me with "being on your own" can be 
ne-consuming and aren't much fun. 
ashing clothes seems to be the most 
ted chore, followed by dishwashing and 
jpping floors. 

And some students return to campus after 
ie year of living in town to avoid the park- 
3 problems that most day students wrestle 
m. When Carol Peterson lived on Highway 
she knew she'd be in class on time only if 

she backed out of her driveway at one par- 
ticular moment. "Otherwise the traffic lights 
would be red," she sighed, "and I'd be late 
every time." 

Biking and walking to class have become 
increasingly popular means of transporta- 
tion for day students. Self-propelled stu- 
dents don't have to sit in class and wonder 
how many tickets will be on their car when 
they are ready to go home.

How to Spot a Freshman 

*/he stepped out of Cresswell, the freshman dorm, 
with an air of confidence, smartly dressed in a navy 
blue skirt, white blouse, and high-heeled shoes. Her 
arms were completely filled — three textbooks, four 
notebooks, pens, pencils, and a dictionary. She was 
fully prepared for her first day of college. 

By the time she'd walked through Allen Hall, though, 
her assurance wavered a little — was it the left building 
or the right one? The books were getting awfully heavy, 

and the new shoes were pinching her toes together. 
Almost immediately a tall young man was at he 

elbow, taking her books from her and smiling a warr 

"Where ya going?" he asked. "I'm Joe." 
"Well," she said hesitantly. She couldn't afford t( 

appear stupid; this was a college boy, probably t 

older man, and he wasn't bad looking at that, sht 


Carpenter Engineering," she told him brightly. 
Going my way?" As they walked off, the boy signaled a 
ictory sign to his less fortunate friend still waiting on 
ie sidewalk for the next unsuspecting freshman girl. 

How did the boy know she was a freshman? 

Freshmen are easy to spot, according to many 
pperclassmen. They drive the wrong direction on one- 
ray streets, are always anxious to meet people, get 
verly exuberant about whatever the professor's talk- 
lg about, and wear "Beach Boy" T-shirts. They're for- 
ver trying to order alcoholic beverages at bars and are 
asily crushed — not having a date to the homecoming 
ame can be a major disaster. They walk into the library 
) look for a book and leave empty-handed, never real- 
:ing that there are books upstairs and downstairs, 
hey're notorious for changing their majors five times 
ach semester and don't even know to make sure 
lere's not sugar in the cafeteria's salt shakers. 

On the other hand, according to Dr. Jack Davis, head 
f the economics department, "Freshmen are marvel- 
us — you can spot them even though they don't have 

shaved heads anymore because of their sense of won- 
der at the world." He snorted at the thought of "upper- 
classmen." "Sophomores are always half-drunk," he 
said. "Juniors have a harried look — they're getting 
into their harder courses, and seniors — hah! — 
they're ridiculously dignified and serious. How can stu- 
dents change so much in four years?" 

Maybe they don't. Soon after Joe walked his "catch" 
to class, his friend Tom spotted another likely prospect 
loaded with books heading for the center of campus. 

"Here, let me help you," he said, trying to take some 
of her books. 

"Well, okay," she said, surprised. 

"My name's Tom," he said. "Say, how'd you like to 
go to the game next weekend?" 

"Oh, I'll be there," she answered. They had arrived at 
George Hall. "Here's where I'm going." 

But there are no classes here," he protested. "This is 
George Hall — there's only professors' offices here." 

"I know," she said sweetly. "I'm the new journalism

lush — a Time of Frantic Recruitment 

60 Girls Go Through Fall Rush Held August 22-28 

■ mush week is the most harrowing event that 
I've ever been involved with," said Gwen McDill, 
president of Panhellenic. "I got phone calls from 
rushees at 3:30 in the morning, coped with rush- 
ees' headaches, footaches, and torn hose, and 
helped schedule activities for over 400 girls." 
She paused. "I'd do it all over again, too — it was 
lots of fun." 

Rush activities are planned in great detail: 
Women have only five minutes between parties, 
and are not allowed to speak to sorority alumni. 
Before men even go to any parties they immedi- 
ately choose ten fraternities they wish to be 
rushed by. Some rushees are cut by all of the 
organizations that they bid on. "That's hard to 
take," said McDill, "but there are hundreds of 
other organizations on campus to get involved 

Those rushees who are pledged by one of the 
sororities or fraternities, however, meet many 
people and begin forming life-long friendships. 
"It's worth all of the frantic hustling and occa- 
sional hurt feelings to see everyone so happy on 
Bid Day," said McDill.

theme parties by nine, the number of MSU soror-

ever unpack Sunday nights so I can't find 
nything, and usually end up getting to class 

The "Monday Morning Blues" — they've 
een talked about, sung about and cursed 
ver since the five day work week was 
tvented. As Myrtle Jones, junior account- 
lg major says, "Monday mornings are like 
le first paragraph of a term paper — the 
rst part of it is the hardest. Everything goes 
lowly on Monday, picks up speed by Wed- 
esday, then zooms into Friday." 

Friday — that's the "magic word" accord- 
lg to Etta Mae Murphree, secretary of the 
conomics department. "I'm always looking 
srward to Friday — why not? I don't have to 
o anything until (her face fell a little) Mon- 
ay morning." 

"Did you ever notice how almost no one 
resses up on Friday?" asked Steve Koop- 
lan, a junior pre-vet student. "That's 
ecause everyone lets their hair down and 
slaxes on Friday. At last you have a little 
me to do exactly what you want." 

One student said he refused to meet his 
lasses on Friday unless he had an exam; a 

secretary confided that she never goes 
home early except on Friday; a professor in 
the business school schedules his Monday- 
Wednesday-Friday classes to meet for long 
periods on Monday and Wednesday so that 
he won't have to teach on Friday; library 
employees look curiously at anyone who 
walks in on Friday afternoon. 

"Everyone's in a great mood during my 
last class on Friday," said Sheree Anton, 
chemistry major. "It's their last class too. It's 
funny how often you head straight for the 
Roads when the bell rings, and discover that 
half the class had that very same idea." 

The proprietors of beer joints, restau- 
rants, and liquor stores may be happiest of 
all when Friday arrives. "Maybe so," said 
one communications major. "I wish some- 
one would reopen Monday's (a bar that 
burned to the ground several years ago). 
But for heaven's sake, I hope they change 
the name!"

Monday Blues, TGIF / 37 

Though often preoccupied with other affairs 
students never forget "the real reason.' 

lor most students there's a direct rela- 
tionship between the amount of time spent 
studying and the grades received; unhappily 
for some, there's also a direct relationship 
between the grades received and Papa's 
facial and verbal expressions when he sees 

It seems simple enough — studying 
means Good Grades and Happy Papas — 
but there are as many styles of studying at 
MSU as there are students. Or at least, there 
are as many styles of studying as there are 
students who study. 

Dormitory roommates, for example, fre- 
quently disagree about studying. "Turn off 
the stereo!" one will shout. "How am I sup- 
posed to concentrate when it's so quiet!" 

the other will answer. People meet and ever 
fall in love while "studying" at the samtii 
library table. Some study when the late mov 
ie's over; others rise with the sun and stud\ 
before their first class begins. 

Very few pupils ever discover that readinc 
over class notes every day virtually elimi 
nates the "last minute cram." "I never gc: 
into a classroom when everyone in there i$ . 
stuffing his brain before a test," said onsf 
engineering major. "Invariably someone 
asks wildly what so-and-so is and everyone 
including me, panics!" 

Most students have a favorite place tc 
study. One resident of Hightower Hall, 
freshman dorm, actually studies in his cai> 
using a flashlight to escape the noise. Man}

Reflector "Ignites" Campus in Controversy 

I he Reflector staff survived both a fire 
which damaged nine type fonts valued at 
$90 each and a recall election for Editor Joe 
Dillon in January 1980. 

The fire reportedly began when a piece of 
paper left near the photograph drying unit 
caught fire, filling all three floors of the 
Union with black smoke. Marty Thrasher, a 
Union custodian, put out the blaze before 
the Starkville fire engine arrived. 

Students voted 831-468 to keep Dillon as 
Reflector editor January 31 in an election 
that "made a mockery of the Student Asso- 
ciation" according to an editorial written by 
Steve Grafton. Dillon came under fire from 
the SA Senate after a series of controversial 
editorials, including one insisting that Ira- 

nian students be immediately deported. T 
SA Senate passed a resolution, introduo 
by Carol Herlihy, calling for the recall elet 
tion that gave students a chance to remo? 
Dillon from office. 

Dillon was not to be outdone, howev< 
and defended his point of view, both in til 
Reflector and on WMSB, that the Sene: 
was merely upset because their meeting 
were not being covered in the paper, h 
successfully postponed the election for t< 
days by filing two appeals to the resoluti* 
that were later rejected. 

Predictably, Dillon was relieved when I 
was allowed to remain in office, writing th' 
the Reflector could at last get on with t| 
business of printing a newspaper.

42 / The Life 

I he residence halls on Mississippi 
State's campus hold a wide range of activi- 
ties. There is enough diversity for every stu- 
dent to get involved and find something he 
truly enjoys. The freshman dormitories gen- 
erally hold quite a few more activities than 
the upperclassmen dorms. These activities 
are designed primarily to help the freshmen 
get to know each other. Activities such as 
discos, movies, cookouts, skating parties, 
birthday parties, card playing and backgam- 
mon tournaments, foosball and pool tourna- 
ments, and even exercise classes all help 
students begin to get involved on campus.

which to live. By providing a well-rounded social atmos- 
phere, residence hall life helps prepare students for 
their futures.

Greeks Participate in Holiday Songfestl 

I he MSU sororities and fraternities were 
particularly innovative in the 1979-80 school 
year, both in their social and fund-raising 

For example, a musical Greek honorary 
was added to the program at the annual 
Greek All-Sing held before Christmas. "One 
needn't belong to a social fraternity or 
sorority to belong to the musical Greek hon- 
orary," explained Cynthia Sidney, the 
newly-elected Panhellenic president. "Each 
group sings one Greek song and one Christ- 
mas song, and everyone sings together at 
the end of the event." This year's large 
group award winners were Delta Gamma 
and Sigma Chi, and small group winners 
were Triangle and Zeta Tau Alpha. 

The Interfraternity Council plans to have a 
Golf Tournament to raise money for multiple 

sclerosis in spring 1980, which "would be a 
fun way to raise money for serious i 
research," according to IFC's secretary, 

John Dye. Likewise, all sororities and the i 
Sigma Chi fraternity chapter are raising as i 
much money as possible to earn points at i 
the spring 1980 Sigma Chi Derby Day; thei 
Children's Cancer Fund again will be thei 
recipient of the funds. "This year's Derby | 
Day theme is Disneyland characters," said: 
Cynthia Sidney. "It's almost as much fun to: 
dress the Sigma Chi pledges as it is to givei 
the money toa worthy cause." 

Both the IFC and Panhellenic gave schol- 
arship awards to the fraternities and sorori- 
ties with the highest grade point averages, i 
Each individual fraternity and sorority also; 

the 79-80 school year. 

Delta Gamma Sorority, the large group 

dinners, won first place for the seventh consecutive year.

I he old gym, once a military hall, was 
scheduled to become a parking lot — until 
the Inter-Residence Hall Council moved in. 
With a $10,000 loan from the Housing Office 
and money collected from refrigerator rental 
and milk and coke machines, the "Student 
Activities Building" was renovated into a 
new office for IRHC and a multi-use area for 

"We scrubbed, scraped, sealed and 
painted walls, built furniture, installed a 
kitchen, put down carpet, and got an air

completion, the Student Activities Building 
will feature a TV lounge, a study room

Butler Holds Varied Seminar* 

below: Birthday parties are 
common occurrences in Butler, 
sometimes held once a month 
for all that month's "birthday 

teaming to live in a residence hall with 
hundreds of people, away from mother for 
the first time, is probably the most difficult 
adjustment college students make; some 
simply cannot live in this share-everything 
situation and drop out of school. As the 
semester progresses, however, each hall 
develops its own personality, friendships gel 
and many are declaring, "I wouldn't want to 
live anywhere else." 

Wanda Miles of Butler, for example, could 
live with her parents in Starkville — but she 
likes everything about Butler, down to the 
color of her room. "They could put in a 
sandwich machine, though," she added. 
The motto, "It's Better in Butler" possibly 
stems from this hall's many programs, like 

seminars on nonverbal communication 
depression and loneliness, nutrition, studj 
skills, and "making it with a roommate." 

Cresswell, the dormitory that most fresr 
man girls want to live in, participated in te 
panty raids in the first month of the schoc 
year. "I love being away from Mama, actin 
crazy, and meeting people," said Cresswe; 
resident Lisa Hamlin, a communication 
major from West Point. "The location' 
good, too — we're not too far from oui 
classes but we're not right in the midst of a 
the traffic, either." Cresswell has activities 
such as disco parties with the men's halls ; 
cookouts and birthday parties and salan 
parties on each floor.

Panhellenic Encourages Participation Among Sororitie 

Gwen McDill Guides Panhellenic Through a Successful Yea 

^^f course the Greek system isn't per- 
fect," said Gwen McDill, president of Panhel- 
lenic, the governing body of MSU's sororities. 
"But being a member of a sorority will enrich 
your life if you let it. Greeks help the university by 
attracting students that otherwise might not 
come here. And it helps some people to have an 
organization to join when they're in a new place.'' 
The Panhellenic Council consists of Gwen and 
a voting delegate and a representative from each 
sorority. "Panhellenic gives its members an 
opportunity to meet girls from other sororities, 
and therefore draws all sororities closer 
together," said Gwen. Junior Panhellic, an 
organization that promotes friendliness and spirit 
among sorority pledges, did an excellent job of 
working for kidney foundations, according to 

Gwen. "They're really enthusiastic," she said. 

Panhellenic sponsored the Greek Eat fc 
sororities, planned the Greek All-Sing with th 
Interfraternity Council, held sorority rush an 
participated in High School-Junior College Dc 
among other things. "It's been a busy year," 

Each sorority, Gwen pointed out, has adopte 
a national philanthropy to contribute to. The bur 
center in Greenville, the March of Dimes, Eastr 
Seals, and organizations founded to fight cystil 
fibrosis and muscular dystrophy have ai 
received contributions raised by goods in MSU 
sororities. "One of the purposes of having a] 
inter-sorority group like Panhellenic," sai 
Gwen, "is to encourage each sorority to accon^ 
plish its goals by showing them that nothing

V#wen McDHI has defied every imaginable 
myth about "sorority girls." 

As a special education major, Gwen finds that 
she has unlimited patience with handicapped 
children, but says, "I am terribly impatient with 
grown-ups, and often quite tactless." Likewise, 
she loves kids, but may not want any of her own. 

In fact, getting married is the last item in her list 
of goals. "First I want to get a dog, then a Mas- 
ter's degree, then a house, and then a husband," 
she said. "By the way, I go out with at least as 
many independent men as fraternity guys." 

Gwen has rafted down the Snake River, clim- 
bed mountains, visited Niagara Falls and toured 
New York. She describes herself as "fiery, ill- 
tempered, and stubborn, also quite friendly, and 
kind of shy." 

"I'd love to be Barbra Streisand for a day, and I 
can't resist buying clothes," she added. "I'm just 
like anyone else — I'm me."

IFC Forms a Common Bond 
Between Fraternities 

Council Sponsors Rush, Golf Tournament 
and a Band During Homecoming 

I he Interfraternity Council, the govern- 
ing body of MSU's 20 fraternities, "is trying 
to reduce some of the competition between 
frats," according to Rod Little, president of 
the IFC. "But our biggest job by far is con- 
ducting fraternity rush. Everything after that 
seems relatively easy." 

"Everything after that" includes quite a 
bit. Co-sponsoring Greek All-Sing, sponsor- 
ing a golf tournament to raise money for a 
"Special Olympics" for handicapped chil- 
dren, scheduling a band for homecoming, 
paying IFC bills, starting a study skills center 
to raise the Greek scholastic average, 
obtaining smoke alarms and fire extinguish- 
ers for the frat houses and scheduling 
speakers for IFC meetings were all parts of 
the IFC's job this year. 

How does it all get done? "I was blesse 
with a good staff," said Little. "I didn't knot 
anything about the IFC last year evei 
though I was its secretary. So this year I di:i 
tributed responsibilities among my staff an 
the results have been very encouraging."

Person-to-person commu-

"to stick his head in the

to see. He spent two months 
this year visiting every 
department on campus, 
learned the names of half of 
the 800-member faculty, 
enjoyed attending various 
alumni functions seven 
nights a week, and met 
weekly with SA President 
Steve Grafton and Reflector 
editor Joe Dillon. 

"But the best part of my

"This is the first university I've worked at where 

students don't play 'the eye avoidance game' 

when walking across campus." — President 

James McComas. 


Mississippi State University is 
small enough for people to get to know 
each other, and still big enough to do 
fine, noteworthy things, according to 
McComas. "This is the first university 
I've worked at where students don't 
play 'the eye avoidance game' when 
walking across campus," he said. 
"Students here will take the initiative in 
meeting people older then themselves 
— I've often had students come up 
and introduce themselves to me. I 
hope our students will keep this self- 
confidence, enjoy their time at college, 
and keep the same commitment to the 
university our alumni have now." He 
smiled. "I believe most students here 
are happy, judging from the expres- 
sions on their faces. I passed one boy 
in the past office once and asked how 
he was doing. He said he was 'making 
it' — that surprised me because 1 usu- 
ally get enthusiastic responses." 

Among other things, McComas has 
established the President's Commis- 
sion on the Status of Women, an 
organization he praised for giving 
awards to members of the custodial 
staff. "The most heart-warming letter I 
ever received was from a woman on 
the custodial staff who said that receiv- 
ing her award was the best thing that 
ever happened to her," he said. 
McComas also believes that the com- 
bined efforts of the faculty, staff, and 
alumni will raise $4 million in contrib- 
utions for the Creative Arts Complex, a 
project he initiated. "It's truly gratifying 
to see how many people have given 
their money and time to this project," 
he said. 

McComas has no plans for his 
future. "I never know where I'll end up

Wise feels that, at MSU, "you can do any-

sident of agriculture, forestry, and 
erinary medicine. "My job isn't 
ated in this office — my desk is." 
Wise has traveled to almost every 
intry in the world to see if MSU's 
irnational staff was getting proper

i. He also helped disseminate

underdeveloped countries receiv- 
money from the United States, 
our shelves in Wise's office are 
)d with gourmet cookbooks. "My 
iness is food — of course I love to

ablish a chefs-in-residence gour- 
t cooking program at MSU. "I 
ited our food program here to 
ude aesthetics as well as nutrition," 
said. So, with a few entrees pro- 
sd by Craig Claiborne, food editor 
he New York Times, he traveled to 
most famous cooking schools in 
ope, including the Cordon Bleu in 
is. "The wine program in the horti- 
ure department was an outgrowth

bably my favorite accomplishment 

r. Wise has also helped establish ; 
College of Veterinary Science, the ' 

International Program of Seed Tech- 
nology, the turfgrass program, and the 
home economics curriculum. "What 
has always impressed me most about 
MSU," said Wise, "is that you can do 
anything you're big enough to do. The 
university is relatively small, not bound 
up with rules and regulations, and you 
can always get encouragement here. 
It's a very friendly, open climate, 
unrestricted, allowing individual deci- 
sions on individual cases." 

Dr. Wise is certainly a unique individ- 
ual — he is considering retiring and 
going into law school. "I love dealing 
with people and ideas," he said. "Law 
is a collection of ideas that affect peo- 

"Well, who's holding the gun to your 
head?" Vice President Robert E. Wol- 
verton asks administrators who say 
that they can't wait to return to full-time 
teaching. "Administration's not an 
easy job, but it's fascinating — and life 
is just too short not to be enjoyed." 

Wolverton turned and gestured 
towards a sculpture of Augustus in the 
corner of his office. "I've adopted 
Augustus' statement as my academic 
philosophy — 'Make haste slowly'." 
Wolverton explained that power is very 
diffuse in a university, never centered 
in one person. Therefore, an adminis- 
trator should be "patient but persistent 
and keep a good sense of humor." 

"Especially a good sense of humor," 
he emphasized. "Otherwise, it would 
be impossible to deal with angry, red- 
faced fathers pounding your desk and 
demanding their money back because 
their child had failed a course." 

Leadership, says Wolverton, is a 
quality that administrators sometimes 
unknowingly abuse. "The greatest 
power anyone has is the power of per- 
suasion," he said. "If you treat people 
as if they are incompetent, they'll 
become incompetent. You have to 
suggest they can become better than 
they are, and above all, you must take

Wolverton, who is" very happy serv- 
ing as an administrator, says he occa- 
sionally sits down and asks himself 
three questions — am I doing what I 
want, am I going where I want, and am I 
becoming what I want to become? "I'm 
optimistic that administrative jobs will 
always provide affirmative answers to 
these questions," he said. "My job is 
very rewarding. As John Gardiner 
wrote, 'The greatest thing any leader 
can do is to keep alive a sense of 

"You can help people fulfill themselves if you 

can convince them that they can better them- 
selves." Wolverton said.

Dora Herring, Director of the School 
of Accountancy, came to MSU as a 
junior in 1962 as the mother of three 
sons ages three to ten years — after 
having left the work force for 14 years. 
"You have to look at life in a long- 
range perspective," she said. "I'm 
always looking forward to new things 
— right now I'm anticipating learning 
to play piano and studying archaeol-

"I was the first woman to teach in the

The School of Accountancy, which 

The Drawing Board 

was known as the Department of 
Accounting until July 1, 1979, was 
given its special separate status to give 
accounting a higher visibility and to 
keep up with the national trend.

Education, according to Dean Max

)uches everybody. "Everyone goes to 
chool in our society, everyone is

rs is an awesome responsibility."

armboy," says the most important 
;sue in education today is the chang- 
lg role of the family. "Granny doesn't

to share information about forest 
resources, didn't miss his cake and 
candles, however. "Instead I had a 
Granola bar with a split bamboo tooth- 
pick in it," he laughed. 

Lee is gravely concerned about the 
scarcity of natural resources. "Ameri- 
cans are too unaware of their responsi- 
bility to conserve resources," he said, 
"and that's where the forester comes 
into the scheme of things — it's our job

"Five words to remember . . . priorities, values, perseverance, faith, anrj 

success." — Dean Willie McDaniel 

I love my job!" Willie McDaniel, 

dean of the college of engineering, 
happily declared. He beamed broadly 
as he seated himself on his office sofa. 
"But if I could go back to school and 
start all over again, I think I'd go into 
veterinary medicine. Everyone's inter- 
ests change." 

Willie McDaniel seems to collect 
interests rather than change them. 
McDaniel jogs up to seven miles per 
day. Other activities include teaching 
the Businessmen's Bible class on radio 
Sunday mornings, reading historical 
novels, and hunting for doves and 

Dean McDaniel even plans for future 
interests. "When I retire I plan to write 
the Great American Novel'," he con- 
fided. But in the meantime McDaniel 
enjoys teaching his electrical engi- 
neering classes and his administrative 
responsibilities. McDaniel finds being a 
college administrator challenging. "I 
couldn't be happy until I'd done the 
most there was to do." 

McDaniel, armed with a degree in 
electrical engineering from Auburn, his 
wife and first son, came to MSU in the 
fall of 1959. "I came here simply 
because at MSU I could have a full- 
time teaching job while I earned my 

Master's degree." He paused, remem- 
bering. "My furniture, though, arrived 
hours before I did. Chester McKee, 
who had hired me, actually paid for my 
furniture to be unloaded without ever 
having seen me. My wife and I knew 
then that we'd found a home here." 

"I tell my students every semester 
that there's five words that I want them 
to remember — priorities, values, per- 
severance, faith and success. If you 
think about and act upon these ideas 
often," he said, "I guarantee that 
things will begin to happen in your 
life." He smiled. "They seem to work 
forme," he added. 

"There's not a thing wrong with 
being a small town redneck," pro- 
claimed Dean Charles E. Lindley of the 
College of Agriculture and Home Eco- 
nomics when asked if agriculture stu- 
dents were often from farm back- 
grounds. "Besides," he added, smil- 
ing, "There aren't any more rednecks 
in agriculture than there are in arts and 

"Many people don't realize that agri- 
culture encompasses all of the most 
sophisticated sciences in the world," 
said Lindley. "Our students study 
almost everything — business, genet- 
ics, engineering — you name it." 

"My work stagnates if I don't get any breaks," Dean 
McDaniel says. "I jog during lunch to release morning 
tensions and prepare for the afternoon." 

"I'm all for MSU in every way," said Dean Lind 
ley. "Some think that competition with Ole Misv 
is too strong. I think our school spirit is great." 

Dr. Lindley, an animal scientist 
became interested in agriculture while- 
growing up on a 160-acre farm in Nox-i 
ubee County. "I loved doing the physi-j 
cal work — milking cows, plowing cot- 
ton, and harvesting corn — it was! 
great." Lindley came to MSU in 193S 
as a freshman, joined the Air Force ir 
1942, then returned and graduated ir 
1946. Two years later he obtained a 
Master's degree from Washington 
State University and in 1957 he 
received a Ph.D. from Oklahoma State 

"My kids are my favorite hobby,", 
said Lindley. "I enjoy spending time 
with them in 4-H activities, baseball 
and football." 

Lindley tries hard to encourage his 
sons and students "to get everything 
2 they can out of their time spent al 
I MSU." Students, he said, usually learn 
h much more outside the classroom than 
inside. "I always try to inspire my stu- 
dents to do the best they can, whether i 
they're doing school work or playing,'! 
football. And getting to know other 
B people, he said, "is probably the moslg 
important, wonderful experience in theu 
■ world." 

'chitecture school is demanding. We're tough 
our students because we're tough on our- 
\/es," commented Dean McMinn. 

Iread coming to work on days I'll have to dis- 
ioint someone," said Dean Rogers. 


,n architect is someone who ere- 

s something where there was nothing 
ore," said Dean William G. McMinn of 
School of Architecture. "I'm an archi- 
t through and through." 
Architecture, said McMinn, has become 
extension of himself. "Architects con- 
ntly make visual judgments of every- 
ig — album covers, silverware, nature." 
rtcMinn traveled to the University of Jor- 
1 in the summer of 1979 to help establish 
ichool of architecture there. "Traveling 
i meeting new people is the best thing 

of the students." 

Dean Gaines M. Rogers of the College of 
Business and Industry has known since the 
age of five that he wanted to become a 
doctor or a college professor. Now in his 
32nd year serving as dean, he says, "I'd 
become a rancher if I had to do it all over 

Honesty, says Rogers, is an essential 
characteristic of businessmen. "People 
sometimes accuse the College of Business 
and Industry of being a hatchery for robber 
barons. The profit motive of business stu- 
dents is misunderstood — managers 
expect to command a high salary, true, but 

about my job," he said. McMinn also 
helped plan a research program for the 
development of a center for the interdisci- 
plinary study of small towns. 

"The thing that impresses me most about 
students here," said McMinn, "is their 
openness. They're not afraid to say, 
'Please help me.' Students from the North, 
on the other hand, often make you feel like 
you should justify your presence by offer- 
ing your teaching credentials." 

The college years are a critical time of 
one's life, according to Dean McMinn. "It's 
the time when you find out what you're able 
to do. Everyone needs a long range reason 
for being on earth, and for me that reason 
is to help design a better world." 

"Dean Miller is the most brilliant man on 
campus," said Vice President Louis N. 
Wise. Mrs. Kimbrough, Miller's secretary, 
agreed. "He's a pure genius, and works 
almost non-stop. It's tough being his secre- 
tary because he's so busy." 

Born in Jamaica, Miller literally grew up 
"all over the world." He is an accomplished ; 
yachtsman, and commented, "If I had the j 
chance to live life all over again, I'd go to 
sea. I would love to become a marine of 
some sort." 

Miller said his job takes up 1 00 percent of 
his time. But he doesn't resent this. "Being 
dean of the vet school has given me the 
opportunity to be a spokesman for the vet- 
erinary profession. I think I've been suc- 
cessful — and successful things aren't 
ever too time-consuming. Only defeat is bit- 

Most of Miller's work is spent in public 
relations for the vet school. "It's definitely a 
multi-faceted venture," said Miller. "The 
vet school is important to students, to ani- 
mal owners, to MSU, and to veterinarians 
who wish to do research." 

"Parents are often more expressive of 
aspirations of students than the students 
themselves," he said. "My job is most 
rewarding when I'm allowed to share the 
aspirations of the student's family, the 
praise of the alumni, and the achievement 

"MSU is fortunate to have Miller to head the vet 
school," according to Vice President Wise. 
"He's been all over the world, and speaks beau- 
tifully — his words fascinate me." 

so do theater people and musicians. Man- 
agers fulfill a role of service to humanity." 

Rogers enages in many relaxing activi- 
ties outside work. He enjoys golf, fishing, 
writing (he writes a column called, "The 
Dean's corner" in the Mississippi Business 
Review) and grows flowers and vegetables 
in his garden. He also enjoys painting. 

Rogers plans to travel after his retirement 
"if I can afford the gas by then." If not, he 
says, "Who knows? Maybe I'll have to settle 
for ranching."

eve been discussing the 
issue of whether or not to become a 
professional school of accountancy 
since the 60's," said Dr. Dora Herring, 
Director of MSU's new School of 
Accountancy. "We decided that 
branching off into a separate school 
would giving accounting at MSU a rec- 
ognition as a true profession and 
attract distinguished speakers, good 
students and good faculty members." 

Accounting, according to Dr. Her- 
ring, is the newest of the true profes- 
sions, and therefore departments of 
accounting in universities across the 
nation are forming their own separate 
schools. "At MSU, the School of 
Accountancy is so intertwined with the 
rest of the business school that we still 
have a dean," she explained. "But 
accounting students don't have to 
have things approved by the dean's 
office anymore — the School of 
Accountancy holds its own students' 
records and plans it own curriculum." 

Students who graduate from the 
School of Accountancy will now 

receive degrees called Bachelor of 
Professional Accountancy and Master 
of Professional Accountancy. "One 
major difference in our requirements 
for the new Bachelor of Professional 
Accountancy and the old Bachelor of 
Science degree is that students who 
earn the B.P.A. degree will have to 
have at least a 2.5 QPA with at least a B 
grade in each of the two principles of 
accounting courses or a 2.5 QPA in 
accounting courses if more than two 
courses had already been taken.

Other changes brought by the

the compilation of a separate alumni

^^Imost no one realizes that 
Mississippi once had 31 wineries," 
said Boris J. Stojanovic, professor of 
enology and head of the enology labo- 
ratory. "They all went out of business 
when prohibition laws were passed. 
One fact that surprises many people is 
that all these wineries were located 
north of Highway 80. In fact, one was 
located a little north of Starkville, and 
that winery's best customers were Mis- 
sissippi A&M students who drove there 

in wagons pulled by mules." 

In 1975, however, the Mississippi 
Legislature passed "The Mississippi 
Native Wine Law of 1976" to authorize 
and encourage domestic production of 
native wines from Mississippi by giving 
Mississippians advantages over out-of- 
state wine producers. "Anyone," said 
Stojanovic, "can get into the wine bus-

"My class walks all over campus and uptown 


"Plant materials is a backbone course and I 

hope the students get a lot out of it," said L. 
A. Estes. "I stay up till 11:30 at night grading 

just don't see how students 
can learn about plants in a class- 
room," mused L. A. Estes, instructor 
of Plant Materials I and II and Interior 
Plant Design and Maintenance. "My 
classes are almost all laboratory, and 
we're constantly walking around 
campus, on private lawns and uptown 
in search of different plants." 

Estes' students call him at home 
and visit him there "all the time." "I 
teach every agriculture student in the 
university, and I am really pleased 
whenever I hear about their accom- 
plishments," he said. "I get pretty 
close to some of my students, 
because I advise the Horticulture 
Club, the Agriculture Council and the 
honor fraternity for agriculture stu- 
dents. The Horticulture Club party is 
held at my house, and I help the club 
members with mum sales, and attend 
the fall and spring picnics. We have a 
really great time." 

"I really feel rewarded and satisfied 
with teaching," said Estes. "The 
information I present is practical and 
useful, and after nine years, I still 
learn something each semester with 
my students." Estes said that teach- 
ers often become so locked into their 
roles that they forget how much 
power they have over students. 
"Every teacher should take a class to 
earn a grade — it brings teachers 
back to the reality of what they put on 
students," he said. 

Most professors consider teaching 
12 hours per semester a very full 
load; Estes teaches 15 hours in the 
fall semester. "I stay up to 11:30 at 
night grading papers," he said. 
"Plant Materials is a backbone 
course and I put a lot into it and hope 
the students get a lot out of it. And I 
want everyone to enjoy class as much 
as I do."

Hildebrandt's Professions Are Teaching and Architecture 

Hr. Hank Hildebrandt, Professor of Architecture, 

akes time out to critique the preliminary design 
■f freshman Martha Buehler of Greenville. 


If you asked me what profession 
was in," mused Hank Hildebrandt, 
rchitecture professor, "I honestly 
on't know whether I'd say architec- 
jre or teaching. Teaching is a profes- 
on, though some don't treat it as if it 

Hildebrandt, who teaches the first 
year design class, finds that the first 
year architecture students are 
"refreshing, very naive, fun to be 
with, and have many good ideas." 

"It takes much energy and a spe- 
cial person at a special time in his 
life to teach the first year students," 
he said. "Younger teachers are 
more enthusiastic and excited; first 
year students are very free and 
uninhibited in design class, while 

upper level students are less ener- 
getic and more conventional. Differ- 
ent teachers are better for different 
students. I can't say that I'll be able 
to teach first year design when I'm 
forty years old." 

Both teaching and architecture, 
says Hildebrandt, "are very humane 
fields — they both make a contrib- 
ution to society." Hildebrandt 
spends much time with his first year 
students. "Sometimes I get calls at 

". . . teaching architecture 
design is my life.^' 

3:00 in the morning," he said. "I 
really try to work a lot with my stu- 
dents — it's really unfortunate that 
professors are expected to get all 
caught up with committee duties 
and publications. That really 
squeezes your time." 

Hildebrandt and his associate, 
Gary Schaffer, have an architecture 
practice in Starkville. "I guess I am 
pretty busy," he said. "When I do 
get some time off, I enjoy traveling 
with my dog, Benjamin, and remod- 
eling my house. But teaching archi- 
tecture design is my life."

Some of the norm violations Flick 
n recall include students disco

sations with an invisible man, "play-

od up with the American flag and 

began singing the national anthem to 
his unsuspecting classmates, and was 
surprised when they eventually joined 
in the singing. 

"Each norm violation has to be tai- 
lored to the person," said Flick. "One 
lady in her mid-forties wore a wig and 
an evening gown to her bridge club 
meeting. Another student who went to 
a salad bar took the whole bowl of let- 
tuce to her table; and a guy went to 
McDonald's and serenaded a girl eat- 
ing there. Yet another student went to 
a dinner as an invited guest, and 
brought his own food in a brown bag." 

"Each student must have his chosen 
norm violation approved by both 
myself and any other authority 
involved," explained Dr. Flick. "The 
class has become very popular; I can't 
take all the students who want to take 
it, but those who do get in seem to 
enjoy it."

Carla Johnson Takes Creative Approach 

V*arla Rae Johnson is an artist, 
a teacher, and a sort of philosopher! 
Versatility and awareness are two 
terms which must go hand in hand 
when describing this teacher and 
her work. 

An experienced showman, Carla, 
as she insists her students call her, 
realizes the many aspects of objects 
which are not usually realized by an 
observer in everyday life. "My con- 
cern now is with realizing a quiet 
(maybe even mute) object which is 
as clean as I can make it, as simple 
as I can see it, and operates on 
several levels of awareness effec- 
tively," she explains in her "State- 
ments of Approach to Work." 

Carla, a teacher of ceramics, 
basic and three-dimensional design, 
drawing and art appreciation, began 
her career as an art teacher at Kah- 
ler Middle School in Dyer, Indiana, 
in 1969. Since that time she has 
received her Master's in Fine Art in 
Ceramics at University of Iowa, 
explored personal artistic pursuits 
and research, taught at State Uni- 

"Humor is often an integral 
element, usually introduced 
in the title. A title is almost 
always essential to the 

versify of New York, and became an 
instructor at MSU in 1977. 

Since 1973 she has shown her 
work, which ranges "from the tradi- 
tional and non-traditional use of a 
medium — assemblages of found 
objects, fabrication of objects which 
cannot be found, to conceptual 
works and performance pieces," as 

explained in her "Statement," 
everywhere from Iowa, Illinois, Ala- 
bama, South Carolina, New York, to 
small and large towns all over Mis- 
sissippi. "Art and Life and How I Felt 
About the Ladder," the title of her 
most recent show, best describes 
Johnson's work. 

When asked about the ideas 
behind her work, Carla commented, 
"Content has always been impor- 
tant, sometimes taking precedence 
over form, or else determining it. 
Humor is often an integral element, 
usually introduced in the title. A title 
is almost always essential to the 

Carla Johnson, art teacher, shapes clay from 
Tuscaloosa, Alabama for ceramics. 

Carla decided she wanted to be i 
an artist in the ninth grade. Origi- 
nally planning to be a painter, she 
realized in college that she could 
best express her ideas and feelings 
three dimensionally instead of two- 

To Carla, creativity is an attitude 
and way of life. She attempts to take 
a creative approach to living and her 
art, "which seems to make a whole 
lot of sense with the present condi- 
tion of the world."

Fine Art Education Offers Cultural Advantages 

he Department of Art began with 
i teacher, one classroom, and one 
e projector. It has grown, as has 
ry other aspect of this thriving uni- 
5ity. In the fall of 1968, 123 students 
oiled in three major sections of art, 
1 no art major offered, 
i 1971, the first major in art was 
>red at this university. The demand 
a more versatile and well-rounded 
'iculum grew with the number of 
Jents enrolling in the department, 
ing 1978, approximately 750-800 
ients were enrolling per semester, 
uding 1 00 art majors. The arts were 
oming an important aspect of MSU, 
ley should be. 

he Department of Art has grown to 
one of the most versatile depart- 
lts on campus, by not only serving 

students in architecture, education, 
landscape architecture and home eco- 
nomics, but commercial art and paint- 
ing majors as well. Fine art electives 
such as ceramics, photography, art 
appreciation, and painting are offered 
for all university students. 

This growing demand for the cultural 
advantages fine art education provides 
has resulted in a faculty of nine full- 
time and one part-time professor in 
1979. Enrollment remains at near 
capacity for space and faculty availa- 
ble, with the number of sections of art 
offered each semester at a total of 36. 

Within the past eleven years the fine 
seed of a small, yet very healthy organ- 
ism — THE ARTS — has been ferti- 
lized and been growing slowly, but 
steadily, into the young healthy depart- 

ment which it is today. The faculty is as 
geographically and philosophically div- 
erse as the term art is known to be. 
Their dedication and love of the arts 
are the fertilizer which keeps art alive 
in the school and student body and will 
continue to nurture the growing aware- 
ness of the arts and culture on this 
campus, as it should be nurtured.

Marine Life Is Clemmer's Specialty 



iology," said Dr. Glen 
Clemmer, "isn't just cutting up rats 
in laboratories anymore." 

Clemmer's particular fascination 
with marine life is apparent from the 
moment one locates his office in the 
basement of Harned. The window to 
the door of his office is cluttered 
with newspaper clippings about var- 
ious fishes, especially the snail dar- 
ter, a fish threatened with extinction 
if the Tenn-Tom Waterway is com- 
pleted. Clemmer is well known for 
his opposition to the construction of 
the Waterway; he is plaintiff in the 
Tenn-Tom lawsuit. 

right: Clemmer fully classifies all of the many 
fish in his collection, below: One entire stor- 
age room in the basement of Harned is filled 
with Clemmer's extensive fish collection. 

"It's not just Tenn-Tom or nuclear 
power that are biological issues today. 
Biology is so exciting! All I have to do is 
read the papers to keep my Introduc- 
tion to Biology sections current. Bio- 
medicine is happening. The Mirex con- 
troversy is happening. And bioethics 
— biologists are exploring the phe- 
nomenon of death, the destruction of 
ecosystems, genetic engineering — 
the list is endless." 

Clemmer's face lit up when asked if 
he had a snail darter specimen. "Come 
on," he said quickly, walking across 
the hall to his storage room. Row upon 
row of shelves filled with specimens of 
fishes, sharks, eels, and all forms of 
marine life left almost no room for mov- 

ing around. "This is why my office is i 
located in the basement," he< 
explained. "I like having my fish col- 
lection nearby." Clemmer hopes to 
stay in the Southeast, too, because* 
of his interest in fishes. "There's a. 
huge variety of fishes here," he 

Nevertheless, Clemmer and his; 
wife, an English teacher, have spent 
the last seven summers on the Colo- 
rado River, where Clemmer 
instructs a class and studies fish he< 
catches. "Biology," he said, "is 
really the life. It's fascinating, allows 
you to meet interesting people and

Nothing Wrong With Having Fun in Class 

B. Holland 

Danny, as he encourages his students to call 
him, finds time in his busy schedule to read 
and take notes in the field of corrections. 
"You can't change the system by throwing 
rocks at Allen Hall," he said. 


I here's nothing wrong with 
having fun in class," said Danny 
Smith, sociology instructor. "I try to 
develop a relationship with each 
class, and since I tend to have lots 
of athletes in my classes, we do 
organized cheers, call Razorback 
and bark at the Bulldogs. There's no 
rules against that." 

Smith claims that he leaves him- 
self "wide open" to students. "I learn 
every student's name, though there 
are over 100 people in my classes — 
it's very important not to feel like you're 
a Social Security number, especially if 
you're a freshman." 

Smith has a special empathy for 
freshmen because he "flunked out" 
his first semester in college. "I get to 
do lots of counseling stuff for my kids 
because I know their names and make 
friends with them," he said. "I get lots 
of suicides and pregnancies, and my 
phone really rings during finals and 
mid-terms. Being a freshman is a big 

adjustment, and ages 18-21 are bad 
years for most people." 

"If I'm a good teacher, it's 
because my students have made me 
one," he continued. "I want my peo- 
ple to make good," so they usually 

However, Smith has become tired 
of teaching Introduction to Sociol-

College of Business and Industry 

A Modern Approach to Today's Busines 


I he College of Business and 
Industry at Mississippi State University 
was organized in 1915. It was not only 
the first college of business in Missis- 
sippi, but it is one of the oldest in the 
United States. The College of Business 
is one of approximately one hundred 
twenty colleges of business that are 
fully accredited by the American Asso- 
ciation of Collegiate Schools of Busi- 
ness at both the graduate and the 
undergraduate levels. The College of 
Business and Industry offers a variety 

of directions a student can take as he 
pursues his degree objectives. In addi- 
tion to the diversity of employment 
opportunities, the curriculum require- 
ments for a degree in business at Mis- 
sissippi State University provides a stu- 
dent with the foundation and stimulus 
for long-term growth and development. 
The College of Business and Industry

method requires each student to

called on in class. 

"Students naturally come to class 
well-prepared if they may be called

Henry W. Nash, head of the Mar-

"All my personal selling students

Salesmen have a bad name 
because not all are professional 
salesmen, said Nash. "A profes- 
sional salesman is a problem solver, 
not a manipulator — he's there to 
solve your problem, and as a result, 
both of you should benefit." 

Dr. Nash, who describes himself 
as a "staunchly patriotic American, 
a believer in free enterprise, and a 
conservative," says that "selling 
potential faculty members on MSU" 
is one of his favorite tasks. "Stark-

Special Education Majors 

Receive Special Attention 

from Nordan 


I work very closely with my stu- 
dent teachers because special educa- 
tion majors must give individualized 
attention to their students," said Mrs. 
Rita Nordan, an instructor in the Special 
Education Department. "I'm very stu- 
dent-oriented — that's what I'm being 
paid for. Students know they can call me 
or come to my home if they need me." 

Mrs. Nordan, who taught in public 
schools for three years, said that she 
very much misses teaching special chil- 
dren. "But we desperately need well- 
trained teachers in special education, 
especially since Public Law 94-142 was 
passed, requiring public schools to offer 
free education to handicapped children. 
The special education field will be 
expanding incredibly fast from this time 

Mrs. Nordan is one of three people in 
Mississippi certified to give the SOMPA 
Test. "I went to Riverside, California to 
be certified by Dr. Jane Mercer, the 
woman who developed this test," she 
said. "This test was designed for special

added. "And that's wonderful, not only

"Reading is the basis of learning." 


jllenberg exercises on his weight lifting 
jchine and runs every day. "My only regret 
my work is that I miss interacting with stu- 
nts as much as I used to," he said. 

I worked in a steel mill while 
I attended college," said Dr. John 
Wollenberg. "And met a lot of really 
intelligent people there who were 
convinced they were stupid — 
they'd done poorly in school and 
lost confidence in themselves." 

These steel workers, along with 
some "Army kids" and Chicano chil- 
dren, contributed to Wollenberg's 
decision to become a teacher of 
reading. "Reading is the basis of 
learning," said Wollenberg. "I 
super-enjoy watching my students 
learn to teach reading. Teaching's 
the perfect job for me — I can talk 
the horns off a billy goat." 

Mississippi State is the perfect 
school to teach at, too, according to 
Wallenberg. "I saw lots I didn't like 
when teaching in public schools," 
he said. "Many children from low 
socio-economic classes weren't 
encouraged to learn at all. But I 
think I can safely say that the stu- 
dents graduating from MSU will help 

every child reach their fullest poten- 
tial. I've been all over the country, 
and the students here are the best 
I've ever known." 

Dr. Wollenberg turned down a 
chance to attend law school — 
"Anyone can do that," he said — to 
become an educator. "I'm basically 
a simple man — I always want to 
work with people," he explained. "I 
read, lift weights, run every day, love 
nature, and love to teach my chil- 
dren things. I think I like to teach 
people to teach reading because 
that way I can help people reach 
their full potential, directly or indi- 
rectly. It's a very gratifying profes-

A^n interdisciplinary team of 11 
MSU science and engineering profes- 
sors and more than 20 graduate stu- 
dents is currently involved in the larg- 
est single research effort ever under- 
taken at Mississippi State. 

Funded by a $1.85 million Depart- 
ment of Energy grant, the university 
has constructed a "magneto-hydrody- 
namics,'' or MHD, simulation facility 
inside the Patterson Engineering Lab, 
according to Dr. David Murphree, sen- 
ior investigator on the project. 

The MSU research team is develop- 
ing materials, high temperature com- 
puter oriented laser instrumentation, 
and chemical analysis of a power pro- 
duction system which may allow utili- 
ties to obtain twice as much electricity 
as previously obtainable from each ton 
of coal. 

MHD research began three years 
ago at MSU, and has been expanding 
ever since, according to Murphree, 
who believes the program will continue 
on campus for at least 10 more years. 
"We are anticipating a fiscal year 1980 
budget in excess of $3 million," Mur- 
phree said. 

Considered one of the prime candi- 
dates in the nation's search for alter- 

A Search for Alternate Energy Sources . . 

nate energy sources, the MHD system, 
as outlined by Dr. A. G. Wehr, is a two- 
step process in which coal is ionized 
into a gaseous condition at tempera- 
tures approaching 5000 degrees Far- 
enheit. The hot gases are then passed 
through a magnetic field, producing 
usable electricity.

Mary Jasper Makes Graphics Enjoyable 

above: "I like to come to class and try out a 

new phrase on my students," Jasper said, 
laughing. "But it serves a purpose, too — stu- 
dents will respond to someone that can speak 
their language." 


lary Jasper's office in Engi- 
neering Graphics is always bustling 
with students. "Grand Central Station 
strikes again!" she often calls cheer- 
fully as students move in and out 
freely. "I think I'm a mother figure," 
she confided. "I had a student from 
Nigeria once who would walk in and 
yell, 'Hi, Big Mama!' " 

Mary Jasper has a special affinity 
for freshmen and prefers teaching 
engineering graphics courses rather 
than upper level courses. "Freshmen 
aren't so hardened," she explained. 
"Most of them have never been expo- 
sed to graphics before, and it's fun to 
see their faces light up when you tell 
them something new." Since Mrs. 
Jasper has five children of her own, 
she finds it easy to keep up with the 
jargon of young people. 

Mary Jasper's only frustration with 
her job is that some students in her 

classes don't seem to enjoy what 
they're studying. "I just hate to see 
kids come into engineering because 
they were coerced into it by their par- 
ents. College is supposed to be fun! I 
tell them not to go into a field because 
there's money in it, but to find out 
what they like!" She laughed. "I hope 
one of my kids will like to be a 

Honors and awards have been 
plentiful for Mary Jasper. "I'm the 
new editor of an international journal 
called Engineering Design," she said. 
"I often tell people it's more of a sen- 
tence than an honor." Mrs. Jasper 
was also chosen during Women's 
Week as an outstanding faculty mem- 
ber. "It's great to be recognized as a 
good teacher," she said. "Like I tell 
my students — you can do well at 
something you love." 

right: "I really do love teaching," comments ^ 
Mary Jasper. "During a weekend at home 
with my five, I find myself looking forward to 
Monday when I can come to work and rest."

igineering Labs Integral Part of Curriculum 

Vrfhemical and petroleum engi- 
neering majors enroll in their curricula 
knowing that the course work won't be 
easy. The laboratories they take as jun- 
iors and seniors aren't easy either, but 
as one student put it, "at least we see 
theories put into practice in lab." 

Lab reports written by chemical 
engineering students, for example, 
must be written in a professional jour- 
nal style corresponding to industrial 
and scientific standards, according to 
lab instructor Ginger Singletary. 
"Team work in the lab is heavily 
emphasized so that students will learn 
to work with fellow engineers," she 
said. "The unit operations laboratory 
provides experience in examining 
roughness coefficients, contraction 
and expansion coefficients, heat trans- 
fer in a heat exchanger, and heat con- 
duction in solids, among other things." 

The petroleum engineering lab for 
juniors taught by Dr. R. E. Rogers is 
mostly concerned with the production 
of crude oil from reservoirs. "This lab 
meets for three hours per week and the 
students pair up to carry on various 
experiments," said Rogers. "Some of 
these experiments include finding the 
permeability of sandstone to determine 
how oil would flow through it, finding 
the porosity of sandstone, measuring 
the specific gravity of crude oil and 
natural gas, and measuring the viscos- 
ity (measure of flow of resistance of liq- 
uid) of oil as a function of temperature. 
"Labs are time-consuming, but very 
helpful because they teach students 
how to work together, and how to use 
safety precautions," said Rogers. 
"Labs are certainly one of the most 
important parts of the curriculum."

just students," goes the saying. The 
Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, 
along with the Mississippi Game and 
Fish Commission and deer hunters in 
all 82 counties proved this in a unique 
way — by getting the hunters of the 
state to serve the university in the form 
of gathering research data on deer 

"This research project has turned 
out very well," says Dr. David Guynn, 
professor in the wildlife department of 
the School of Forest Resources. "The 
three different groups (hunters, 
researchers, and the commission) 
became one big team. By helping us to 
collect data on deer herds in the state, 
the hunters became aware that a real 
problem exists with the deer popula- 
tion here, and they are taking steps to 
correct it." 

The problem is that many counties in 
the state are over-populated with deer. 
"This came about when the Mississippi 
Game and Fish Commission discov-

they began a deer restoration opera

"Many people aren't aware that dee 
overpopulation is a very real problem,' 
said Guynn. "When an area has toe 
many deer, these animals get smalle

The Mississippi Game and Fish Com-

iwitzer Finds That Research and 
Peaching Is "Best of Both Worlds" 


In life you're not going to find 
our answers on page 32," said Dr. 
Seorge L. Switzer, forestry profes- 
;or "I don't use textbooks in my 
;lass because I don't examine my 
students on what they know, but on 
low they use what they know, 
here's not any set answer to what 

one does with this or that acre of 
forest land — it's a matter of interpre- 
tation. Two-thirds of Mississippi is for- 
est land, so it's pretty important that 
forestry students can put their knowl- 
edge of trees and calculus and soils 
and everything else to work." 

Switzer recalls that even as a young 
boy, he'd go straight to the woods 
when school was over. "I have an 

innate liking for the forest," he said. 
"The forest isn't just a place where 
trees get cut down; it's a living, 
dynamic place. I've always been 
curious about what makes a forest 

Switzer, who deals chiefly with 
forest nutrition, came to the school 
of forestry "just by a random 
chance." He had been doing fores- 
try research at the experimental sta- 
tion, he said, when the forestry 
school was formed, and he became 
a member of the original faculty. 

"It's been a very fruitful experi- 
ence to teach," he said. "Every 
semester I add to and change the 
silvaculture course, and try to get 
my students to learn to think, to 
apply what they know. Otherwise 

"Two-thirds of Mississippi is 
forest land, so it's pretty 
important that forestry stu- 
dents can put their knowledge 
of trees and calculus and 
soils and everything else to 

they'll just be lost when they enter 
the field, like I was as a young fores- 

Switzer feels that he is especially 
fortunate because he spends about 
half of his time doing research in the 
forest. "I have the best of both

The vet student's day is like a job in

a September 8, 1979 at 
10:58 p.m. an MSU coed's dream 
came true. The coed was Cheryl Prewitt 
and her dream was to be Miss Amer- 
ica. This moment represented the culmi- 
nation of nineteen years of preparation. 
As Cheryl proudly walked the ramp 
after being crowned, she could be heard 
simply saying, "Thank you, thank 

Cheryl's walk down that ramp did 
not begin in Atlantic City, however. It 
began many years ago when Cheryl 
began to enter beauty contests. When she 
entered MSU, she began to compete in 
the annual Miss MSU pageant. Her 
efforts were rewarded when she became 
Miss MSU in 1978. Eventually Cheryl 
entered the Miss Mississippi Pageant as 
Miss Starkville and was chosen to rep- 
resent Mississippi at the Miss America Pageant. 

Armed with confidence, her faith in God, and a lifetime of preparation, Cheryl 

then journeyed to Atlantic City. There this talented musician was crowned MSU's 

first Miss America. Cheryl's future plans may include 

graduate school in New York or a professional career 

in California. 

As evidenced by the warm welcome she received on 
her first return to MSU since she became Miss Amer- 
ica, Cheryl has continued to be very special to the stu- 
dents and faculty. 

How does Cheryl feel about all this? Well, as she

coed can be seen frequently in the halls

just like every other student here, but 
she is not like every other student. She 
has the special distinction of being Miss 
Mississippi. Her name is Sherye Sim- 

Sherye Simmons, a junior marketing 
major at State, is a most versatile indi- 
vidual and a talented musician. Her 
pageant career did not begin as Miss 
Mississippi. Sherye was crowned Miss 
Jackson in 1978 and was crowned Miss 
MSU in 1979. Her performance has consistently been outstanding, as evidenced by 
her record. 

Where will Sherye go from here? Well, this year her activities will take her 
across the state and back again, making appearances and singing. As for the 
future, Sherye wants to obtain a degree in marketing and pursue a career as a buyer 
or manager of a retail store. 

MSU is truly privileged and proud to have such a lovely celebrity in 
its midst.

"The Best of Broadway" set the mood for a night of beauties in 
the Union Ballroom as eighty-four contestants vied for the title of 
Miss Reveille. 

Special Entertainer was Sherye Simmons, 1979 Miss Mississippi. 
Julie Flanagan and Kelly Haggard directed the pageant which was 
emceed by Hank Flick, Professor of Communications at MSU. 

As the audience relaxed to view the beauties and enjoy the melo- 
dies of "Standing on the Corner," "If Ever I Would Leave You," 
" Younger than Spring Time, " and others, judges narrowed the slate 
to a Miss Reveille and four beauties. 

Ally Justis, a sophomore from Nashville, Tennessee, was selected 
as the 1979 Miss Reveille. Beth Crook of Amory, Kathy Pyatt of 
Columbus, Bette Ronan of Memphis, Tennessee, and Judy Wildmon 
of Tupelo, were selected as beauties.

Vibrant and hard working personalities 
add life to MSU sports scene 

Hartley claims lengthy MSU tenure, 
"a labor of love." 

I he familiar sound of "sports" resounds 
from the unsinkable Bob Hartley as he 
answers a plea for assistance from his office 
in the Sports Information Department. A 
behind-the-scenes publicist for the Missis- 
sippi State Athletic Department since the 
mid-40's, Hartley has combined his versatile 
writing skills with a love for sports to main- 
tain one of the most efficient and accommo- 
dating sports information departments in the 

Prior to assuming the Assistant Athletic 
Director's role in Feb. 1978, the former pres- 
ident of the College Sports Information 
Directors of America (CoSIDA) in 1962-63 
was SID at State from 1946-78. During his 
tenure the personable Meridian native won 
the coveted Arch Award as SID of the Year 
in '76, and was selectd as a member of the 
NCAA Public Relations Committee as well 
as the U.S. Basketball Writers Board of 

Not even triple bypass heart surgery in 
November could sidleine the tireless Hartley 
for long. He returned to work full time in Jan- 
uary. And you'll find no regrets from the 
long time professional. "It's been a 33-year 
labor of love and the association with all my 
colleagues and athletes has been most 
rewarding," the silver-haired journalist said. 

A visit to the Sports Information office 
quickly makes it apparent why the hectic 

sports schedules of MSU's athletic 
squads are handled with such precision. 

As a result of Hartley's undying enthu- 
siasm and devotion to work he so dearly 
loves, Mississippi State has been made a 
better place. Thanks, Mr. Hartley, for a 
job well done. 

Bulldog Club proves invaluable 
to Athletic Department 

Who contributed $675,000 to help 
fund the Physical Fitness Complex in only 
its fifth year of existence? This accom- 
plishment along with many other duties 
within the scope of the athletic program is 
the reason for the Bulldog Club, Inc. 

According to Executive Director Molly 
Halbert, the organization's purpose is to 
"establish and maintain scholarship 
funds for student athletes at Mississippi 
State and to promote capital improve- 
ment in the program." 

Halbert revealed there are presently 
4200 making contributions to the athletic 
program through the non-profit Bulldog

ssissippi State athletics experi- 
;ed a lot of change over the year. Foot- 
I coach Emory Bellard came in and tried 
evamp the Bulldogs' stumbling program. 
;ketball coach Jim Hatfield became the 
t coach since Kermit Davis to field back 
Dack teams. Gone from our athletic are- 
i were Bob Tyler and Dave Marler; gone 
-e Ray White and Wiley Peck. In came the 
;hbone and Kalpatrick Wells at the low 

lut as these sports evolved, one individ- 
, Jack Cristil, turned in yet another 
>eccable performance. Behind the mike 
the last 26 years, Cristil has become 
te's most recognizable sports figure. 
Iristil says broadcasting is the only thing 
has ever wanted to do, but adds, "I have 
idea if I'll be working from one year to the 
ct." Chances are he will. 
When I go on the air I try to act profes- 
nally and represent the University, the 
3, those kids on the field and their par- 
s back home. I'm not a cheerleader like 
ne broadcasters. I'm going to do my own 
ig the best way I know how." 
kistil says he feels Mississippi State may 
ally be on the "right road." "With the 
)erience of the people (Maddox, Bellard, 
tfield and Polk) Mississippi State can only 
)rove," he states. "It's encouraging to 
> the university has the strongest alumni 
jport ever and that student interest is at 
all-time high. But some people don't 
jerstand these are 19, 20, and 21 year old 
jng men performing, not machines. They 
make mistakes." 

His personable approach has helped him

As a result of consistent giving in the most 
recent past, Halbert, who has been associ-

and baseball playing days of the late fifties, 
anticipates the Bulldog Club being able to 
fund every scholarship given by the Athletic 
Department in the "very near future." Ath-

Diminutive junior Doug Smothers did not

dye McDole. 

But there is no hesitation in his voice 
his step; he talks and he plays with con» 
dence, poise, and dignity. Coach Emory B<

better description. 

Daily practices until dusk and beyond a

and the angular gazelles of the backfiei! 
but being belted by those nearly twice yo! 
size seems almost psychotic. Smothe: 
does not agree. 

"The goal in my heart and mind is to pl| 
bigger than I am," says the heady compe

since his freshman and sophomore year 
Now a junior, Smothers, nickname 
"Smugs," recalls his reasons for giving tr

started to gain a little bit. My Mom and

I rior to the 1979 football season, Curtis 
was preparing for another season just 
i his teammates. However, due to an 
;le injury, the former Lanier High stand- 
missed most of Emory Bellard's initial 
ing session at State. 

ven though the linebacker lost valuable 
>erience, he spent the summer lifting 
ghts and running, and added ten pounds 
lis already muscular 210-pound frame, 
in, a catastrophe occurred. Due to a 
irt condition, Hill almost died. 
I had been having minor chest pains," 
said. "Then one morning I was eating 
akfast and all of a sudden I had terrible

athe. I thought I was having a heart 

he preliminary diagnosis showed that 
had ripped his :hest muscles while lift- 
weights. Following two weeks of con- 
nt bed rest, however, Hill had lost 26 
inds and was still suffering from extreme 
)st pains. 

,fter a visit to anolher doctor, Jon Meyer, 
Baptist Hospital ; n Jackson, Hill found

lace the lost weight and practice time 
! to the heart condition. Hill was unable to 
ticipate in scrimmage again until August 
hence he had only 1 1 days until the Bull- 
is' opening game with Memphis State on 

September 8. But through hard work and his 
even stronger belief in the Lord, Hill made 
the rapid progression it took to ready him- 
self for the 1 979 Bulldog season. 

In the first two games, State lost two mid- 
dle linebackers to injuries and Curtis Hill 
was expected to perform up to proper 
capacity, despite his lack of playing time at 
the position. He had normally been an out- 
side linebacker. 

"It definitely took some hard work to get 
myself ready," Hill said. "When Johnny 
(Cooks) and Bo (Robertson) got hurt, I still 
had to beat out Ricky (Williams) for the job. I 
accomplished that in practice." 

Through the next eight games and prior to 
the finale against Mississippi, Hill made 58 
solo tackles, 56 assists and three quarter- 
back sacks for a minus six yards. 

"I had been looking for an opportunity like 
this for a long time," Hill said. "I wondered if 
I could really handle it, considering every- 
thing that had happened. But once I got in 
there, everything fell into place. 

"I learned a lot about myself throughout 
this season. I've put a lot of things in order. 
The whole experience drew me closer to 

The entire change of events was not only 
beneficial to Hill, but to everyone he came in

is evident that all the hard work was worth it.

Cmory Bellard, with a characteristic pipe 
in his right hand and a legal pad in his left, 
pondered the plight of his mysterious Mis- 
sissippi State football program. He was a 
portrait of intense concentration. 

His first season proved a rather inauspi- 
cious beginning. Five losing efforts con- 
cluded a 3-8 campaign. Victories over win- 
less Florida, Bluebonnet Bowl participant 
Tennessee, and pathetic Marshall were little 
consolation. Frustration and disappointment 
reappeared like unwelcomed inlaws. The 
Maroon and White's stretch run, coined 
"Murderer's Row" was exactly that. Suc- 
cessive conference losses to Alabama (24- 
7), Auburn (14-3), LSU (21-3), and Ole Miss 
(14-9) turned a mediocre season into a poor 

Nevertheless, the distinguished Texan 
believes his Bulldogs were beaten by only 
one team that was better, Alabama. A new 
system and unparalleled injuries were good 
alibis, but not really the answer. Bellard

And a final test of loyalty confronted the managers on Sun- 
days, when most of us were watching pro football or attending 
to various other leisurely pursuits, as the players' goods were

plex; only then could a moment of rest be secured 

When asked if the job was worth the extensive time and 
effort, Williams said, "It was a lot harder than I thought it would 
be . . . and a cold day on the practice field made you think, but 
it's nice when the coaches know you and call you by name. I 
felt like I was making a contribution." 

For the trainers, who use miles of tape in the course of a sea- 
son, the story is much the same, long hours and little recogni- 
tion. However, the Athletic Department awards the student

Lewis, like his cohorts Ed Wolverton, Chuck Caraker, Ronie 
Stephens, Michael Dent, Gene Bobo, Perry Hendrix, Shawn 
Malone, Lynn Parnell, Jerry Foster, and Mike McCullough 
attended primarily to the taping and treatment needs of the 
individual player 

Under the auspices of Head Trainer Mark Stephens and long- 
time assistant Straton Karatassos, the group taped every play-

knees and other specific areas which required attention. On a 
fall Saturday away from Starkville and Scott Field, Lewis said 
the players are taped following the team meal in the dining 
room while only minor details are attended to at the stadium 

"In all, it's been a good experience It made me feel like a

honor groups as the Lion's Club All-State 
High School Band, all in hopes of convinc-

they should attend Mississippi State. 

"Pre-school workshop" — a Maroon 
Bandese term for its week of rehearsals 
prior to the start of the fall semester. Some 
Band members describe it with the plain 
English term "Hell Week." But in any lan- 
guage, the week of pre-school rehearsals 
isn't what someone would call "easy." It is a 
week of hours and hours of playing and 
marching in the sort of temperatures which 
have made the manufacturers of air condi- 
tioners very rich men. 

For the new Band members the week is a 

time of orientation. People who were le 
ers in their high school bands back ho 
only a few months before now have to le 
to be good followers. The way they 
things back in Isola isn't important on

The Maroon Band also held the first

50 ex-Maroon Band members were on hand 
to march and play to a few old favorites at 
half-time and cheer the team on from the

Band members auditioned for placement in 
either the Symphonic Band or the Concert

its annual tour during late March.

^^Il the physical and emotional ele- 
ments of sport were present in the first half 
of the Bulldogs' less than predictable bas- 
ketball season. 

Through 21 games, the Maroon and White 
were up and down and up again. The record 
reeked with inconsistency at 1 1 -1 0. 

There were heroes and goats, wins and 
losses, togetherness and internal strife. 

After racing to a 10-3 start, including a 
championship in the first annual Babe 
McCarthy Invitational Tournament and a 3-0 
mark to lead the Southeastern Conference, 

Elusive Randy Jordan got underneath the AubU 
Tiger zone defense to record this layup. 

the once healthy Dogs came up with a 
extreme case of vitamin deficiency. 

The gospel according to Head Coad 
Jim Hatfield echoed these sentiments. 

"Our season has been one of ups an 
downs. It's been one that seen a lot 
young people gain some experience | 
collegiate basketball. 

"We had many new players, both frest 
men and transfers who were trying | 
blend in together. 

"We've played very very good baske 
ball at times, and at times we've m 
played very well. 

"That inconsistency is brought abo 
because of a lack of experience andi 
lack of maturity."

Seasoned Hatfield overcomes adversity 

Appropriately, maybe, he seemed composed. 

The state-wide press was dogging Jim Hatfield 
and his quickly dwindling personnel known as a 
team. A Jackson columnist said the program was 
hanging together by a thread. 

The malcontents numbered six. 

The losing streak was ballooning at seven. 

A road trip to Athens, Ga. was next in view. 

But the basketball coaching son of a Baptist 
minister didn't seem disturbed. 

Hatfield, 35, had engulfed himself in the game 
since the age of eight. 

Coaching-wise, he came up through the ranks. 

A high school job in Orlando, Fla., then on to the 
big time. 

First as an assistant at Birmingham Southern 
under Murray Arnold, who he would later bring to 
MSU in the same capacity. 

Then Kentucky's Joe B. Hall beckoned him. He 
grew up fast in Blue Grass country. Basketball is 
life or death to those who cheer the Wildcats. 

And fittingly enough, a head coaching position, 
and a challenging one for the former Tennessee 
high school and college (East Tennessee State) 

"During the year I took the job at the University 
of Southwestern Louisiana," he recalled, "they 

were still on probation, 127 violations. The pro- 
gram had been suspended 

In the second year of the probationary period 
Hatfield had an opportunity to travel the country. 

"It was a very beneficial year for me . . . watch- 
ing people play, recruiting players, spending time 
at different programs and I was fortunate enough 
to be able to spend more time with Coach Wooden 
at UCLA during his last year." 

Wooden, as in John, was the architect of 10 
NCAA championships at the Los Angeles institu- 

"The time with him was so beneficial from a 
learning standpoint,'' Hatfield said. "I gained 
exposure to so many different philosophies and 
approaches to basketball." 

As a result, he totally rebuilt Southwestern Loui- 
siana's program into national contention in a span 
of three years. Let the record show, 7-19 in 1975- 
76, 21-8 in 1976-77, and 19-8 in 1977-78. 

And finally to Starkville. A 19-9 season and 
MSU's first ever bid to the National Invitation Tour- 
nament in 1978-79. 

Hatfield was indeed, well bred. Perhaps then, 
this was the reason for his composure. 

This road had been traveled before.

lack of playing time," Hatfield continued. 

"And you are naive if you don't think you 
will have to dismiss somebody from time to

On that, the Bulldogs hopes would rest.

NBA is just a step away 

Every paper in the South has extolled the 
virtues of Rickey Brown. The pro scouts 
from Atlanta to Seattle agree he is a bonaf- 
ide NBA prospect, but what is MSU's Mr. 
Basketball really like behind the paper clip- 
pings and the impressed observers. 

In direct contrast to his rather outgoing 
behavior on the floor, Brown is soft-spoken 
and dreadfully humble off the playing sur- 

His condition is somewhat strange con- 
sidering his limitless opportunities for self- 

Having led the nation in rebounding for 
most of the season, the 6-10 Brown has 
been at the forefront of collegiate basket- 

His 20 point scoring average placed him 
second in the Southeastern Conference and 
made him a dominating force at both ends 
of the floor. 


"When I was young I used to hang o 
with a lot of older guys to get the garr 
down more complete," Brown said. 

"I guess when I was in the ninth grade 
knew I was going to be a good play< 
because that year I played on the varsi 
team. I knew then I had a little extra taler 
than most of the other guys." 

The college recruiters agreed. Nearly M

Head Coach Ron Polk agreed. "An important factor 
in obtaining success is not only having ability, but jell- 
ing together with the proper personality." 

State's caring and wanting personality propelled 
them to a blistering start in the 48-game regular season 
much the way a world class sprinter will leave the 
blocks in the finals of an Olympic event. 

Kelly, a first team All-Conference and All-American 
selection, remembers. "We got on a win streak early in 
the season and adopted the attitude, nobody could 
beat us." Hardly anyone did.

et Ron Polk's exuberant approach to 

eball has been nearly as noteworthy as 

incomparable record (302-126) in the 



te:^ : ..;- 


Since he was 21 and holding down his 
first job as a graduate assistant at the Uni- 
versity of Arizona, Polk has been among the 
game's foremost college promoters. 

Fourteen years of dedicated involvement 
later, the youthful coach has maintained his 
incessant fervor for the game. 

Since arriving at Mississippi State in 1975, 
the 35-year-old mentor has set and re-set 
the national record for season ticket sales in 
college baseball. 

Polk's most recent diamond crew finished 
fifth in the nation, concluding a record-shat- 
tering season. 

School and conference marks alike were 
buried as Polk's fourth Bulldog edition 
posted a 48-12 overall worksheet, including 
a trip to the prestigious College Baseball 
World Series. 

To appreciate the accomplishments more 
keenly, however, it is important to realize 
that MSU's baseball fortunes have not 
always been the school's source or pride. 

The Boston-born and Phoenix-bred 
dynamic Polk revamped a sagging diamond 
program with what he described as 
"extremely long hours." 

"At Georgia Southern (1972-75)," said 
Polk, "we had to do the same thing — we 
felt the only way to have a winning team was 
to bring in quality kids and give them a first 
class baseball program." 

Where did he find quality kids? 

"We went into the hotbeds of college 
baseball across the country, primarily Flo- 
rida." A pin-marked map keeps Polk abreast 
on the locations of his prospects. 

He is the Lou Holtz of college baseball. He 
speaks, they follow. He humbly explains, "I 
enjoy everything about being around col- 
lege guys who are non-professionals striv- 
ing to become better players and better 

Those players helped Polk earn 1979 SEC 
and Southern Regional Coach of the Year 

His success has even mushroomed into 
the production of a book, which has been 
adopted by over 200 colleges as a text for 
coaching baseball classes. 

"I want to continue to build a program 
second to none in the South," he maintains. 

Knowing Ron Polk, it's a sure bet, for 
wanting and doing are synonymous. 

Freshman Steve Susce worked his way into the 
rotation in this action against St. Olaf of Minnesota.

dream, but a reality 

"It just seemed we got better and better as a team," 
the four-year helmsman added. 

Success breeds success a fellow said. He was a 
smart fellow. 

The Maroon and White finished the regular season 
with an incomparable 17-2 worksheet among Western 
Division foes. The first place divisional finish enabled 
MSU to host the spine-tingling Southeastern Confer- 
ence tournament at Dudy Noble Field. Clutch play 
involving late inning heroics carried the rampaging 
hosts past Kentucky, LSU, and Florida to their first con- 
ference pennant since 1971 . 

For their efforts, the upstart Maroons flooded the all 
league squad. Rightfielder Bobby Kocol, an All-Ameri- 
can academician, catcher John McDonald, southpaw 
Kenny Kurtz, and the gazelle-like Kelly, who set or tied 
1 7 conference marks and 26 school records while bat- 
ting .400, were tabbed as All-Southeastern Conference. 

It was only the beginning, though. Tulane, the Univer- 
sity of New Orleans, and Murray State also found the 

confident Starkvillians too hot to handle. Despite a 
opening round loss to UNO, which forced MSU intoth 
loser's bracket, the Dogs recovered to capture foi

Despite the obvious lack of track facilities at Mississippi Stat 

the Bulldog program has spawned five c 

the nation's top performers since 1 97J 


w w e started off with a bang, but 
everything else was not so good," 
mourned former Mississippi State Track 
Coach Don Hunt. Remind you of the date 
with the Homecoming Queen who had to 
be in by 9:30 p.m.? 

Nevertheless, Hunt's 79 edition, his 
last after seven years at the Bulldog helm, 
won the MSU Indoor Classic among 32 
teams but had little to brag about follow- 
ing the season-opening performance. 

The colorful State graduate, a former 
thinclad of considerable fame in view of 
his unchallenged school standards in the 
mile and two-mile events, still wonders if 

that old coach's bug-a-boo, injuries, 
turned a fruitful season into one of fam- 

"The injury situation got to the point we 
could not make the caliber of effort we 
were used to and we just had to back 
off," recalls the proven leader. While 
commander in chief of Bulldog track for- 
tunes, Hunt's squads were "used to" 
competing in the nation's most presti- 
gious events. Since upgrading the team's 
schedule with yearly appearances in the 
Florida, Texas, and Drake Relays, Hunt, 
now fulltime Academic Advisor for the I 
MSU Athletic Department, thinks the 
school's lack of proper facilities also

Mississippi State's so-called track, a 
inder oval which encircles the football 
eld, is not accredited for collegiate use. 
lence, the Bulldogs have not had a home 
leet since mid-March 1972. 

"Our inability to recruit finally caught 
p with us," confessed the Laurel native. 

Despite a disappointing eighth place 
nish in the Southeastern Conference 
leet held in Tuscaloosa, State 
abounded for a respectable showing in 
le NCAA Outdoor championships. Its tie 
>r ,22nd enabled State to lengthen its 
treak to four years with a finish of 26th or 
etter, in the top meet among collegians. 

However, those showings have been 
no accident. The accomplishments of 
bonafide Ail-Americans Lee Palles, Evis 
Jennings, Seigha Porbeni, Carl Mose, 
and Dennis Otono, have kept Mississippi 
State on the nation's track map in recent 

"Miraculous" is the way Hunt 
describes the quintet's feats in view of the 
poor track environment. "They are as fine 
as any athletes anywhere in the United 
States. They realized the situation and 
made the best of it. It took a lot of charac- 
ter and courage, I don't see how they 
did," Hunt said.

vided State with another bright spot in the 
otherwise dismal '79 campaign. The 
native Nigerian, who will compete for his 
country in the 1980 Olympics, was sec- 
ond in the SEC 400-meter intermediate 
hurdles to fellow All-American James 
Walker of Auburn and duplicated that 
performance with a 49.6 clocking at the 
79 NCAA Outdoor in Champaign, III. as 
runnerup to Southern Cal's James 

Meanwhile, Mose, also a member of the 
79 contingent and Jennings, a '68 gradu- 
ate have been responsible for State's 
acclaim in the quarter-mile forum, while 
Porbeni, a triple jump specialist, and 
Palles, the 1978 NCAA Outdoor decath- 
lon runnerup have lent strength to the 
field events. Jennings and Palles are 

1980 Olympic hopefuls. 

Though four of the five have departed 
the Starkville campus, the MSU track pic- 
ture looks amazingly bright. Athletic 
Director Carl Maddox, who added a mod- 
ern track facility during his tenure at LSU, 
has begun to upgrade State's sagging 
physical facilities. Construction of a new 
synthetic track, to be located north of the 
Physical Fitness Complex and parallel to 
Highway 82, is already in the works.

i^^»n unknown freshman from Porto Allegre, Brazil, 
shed his anonymity among collegiate tennis circles in a 
big way to lead Coach Chris Baxter's 79 Bulldog net- 
ters to their best season since the glory days of the late 

Posting an overall 30-6 record in singles competition, 
Eleuteno Martins, a diminutive lefthander, guided Mis- 
sissippi State toward the upper rungs of the SEC and 
Southern Regional tennis ladders 

Martins recalls his move to the states. 

"The first week I was homesick But now I have a lot 
of friends and feel at home here " 

One of the top-ranked junior players in Brazil as a 
high school senior, Martins first came in contact with 
MSU when approached by Tommy Tann, a State alum- 
nus from Jackson. 

At the request of Coach Baxter, Tann made an 
unscheduled swing through Brazil on his South Ameri- 
can vacation and saw Martins play 

Following that initial encounter, Baxter saw Martins 
play in the Orange Bowl Classic and was convinced of 
his prowess on the tennis court. 

Martins was interested in other schools but felt he 
would have a better shot at playing the No 1 position at 

"Teams like USC and UCLA have very good teams, 
but I like to play No. 1 here instead of maybe No 6 

Bulldog fans are certainly pleased with his decision 
after the personable Brazilian became the Dogs' first 
entrant in the NCAA's since 1968.

However, Martins was hardly a one man show in 
MSU's 25-2 season a year ago, including their 23rd Mis- 
sissippi Intercollegiate Tournament championship title 
in 30 years and runnerup honors in the 31 -team Big 
Gold Classic, held in Hattiesburg. 

Alex Zalesky, the other half of State's foreign-born 
talent lent his ground stroking expertise and a 879 win- 
ning singles percentage to a club which defeated the 
likes of Florida State, Hawaii, Indiana State, Michigan 
State, and Wisconsin in streaking to 17 c 

The Dogs were equally dominant in conference play, 
evidenced by a 5-1 mark. 

State's lone SEC setback occurred in Gainesville, Fla 
where the netters dropped four close three-set matches 
in surrendering to the highly regarded Gators, 6-3 

Zalesky, the 1978 Bolivian Junior Champion, summed 
up MSU's record-breaking season this way, "From one 
to six we were all pretty equal and we wanted to play the 
best tennis we could. We had very good friendship on 
the team and a coach who treated us like responsible 

The remainder of the senior-dominated unit included 
veteran Mark Thompson, who manned the No 2 singles 
position and remains one of the finest players produced 
within the state in recent years. The Jackson native 
went 29-5 on the campaign, while Barry Losson of St 
Louis compiled a 22-8 worksheet in the No. 3 singles 

West Palm Beach's Jim Harris was certainly no weak 
link, responsible for a 29-4 record as did the youthful 
Shelby Ware of New Orleans, who recovered from back 
problems in 78 to make a valuable contribution in '79.

ach Ronnie Moore, in his last season at 
Bulldog helm, tutored one of the sound- 
golfers ever produced at MSU. 
•espite a dismal season from a team 
idpoint, four-year letterman Bubba Wil- 
i completed his impressive collegiate 
eer with an even more impressive senior 
ipaign. The two-time Mississippi Inter- 
egiate champ and '77 runner-up in SEC 
dalist play stroked an average of 72.6 
ts per round to finish tied for first after 
ulation play in the Florida Invitational, 

sixth in the Seminole Classic, tied for first 
after regulation play in the Delta State Invita- 
tional, ninth in the Southern Junior-Senior 
Invitational, 16th in the Southeastern Con- 
ference and a surprising 13th in the NCAA 
Championships at Winston-Salem, North 

"Bubba was one of the most talented 
players I have ever coached," said Moore. 
"I think his qualifying for the NCAA was the 
highlight of his playing career and my 
coaching career." 

In addition, the Tupelo native molded his 
driving and putting talents with the likes of 
seniors Jerry Keilch (75.2) and walk-on Mar- 
vin Gray (76.7) to form State's most consist- 
ent trio through the rugged '79 spring 

With the arrival of fall and the ranks 
depleted by graduation, first year coach 
Gary (Doc) Meredith, formerly of Furman 
University, had to call on the likes of lone 
senior Bubba Holloway, and four inexperi- 
enced sophomores, including Ken 
McDonald, Max Maxwell, Doug Allen, and 
Billy Joe Dottley to compete in the abbrevi- 
ated two-tourney slate. 

Disappointing finishes in the Southern 
Mississippi-Broadwater Beach Invitational 
(13th among 16 teams) and third among six 
teams in the annual Mississippi Intercollegi- 
ate have not dimmed Meredith's hopes for 
the future. 

"This is a great opportunity and a golf 
program with a lot of potential. It will be a 
challenge to move back into a competitive 
environment after Furman limited its pro- 
gram for a few years. I can't promise any 
timetable, but we are going to give it all we

First floor Union seems an unlikely place 
for a team workout; nevertheless, one does 
take place there once a week, with individ- 
ual members of the team practicing there 
every day. The place is the Union Recrea- 
tion Room, and the team is none other than 
the MSU Bowling Team. 

Every Wednesday afternoon the team 
holds an organized practice in which team 
members bowl against each other to deter- 
mine the starting five for the week. In addi- 
tion, team members may work out individual 
problems on the lanes every day from two 
until five.

a good chance of first place in our division."

Invitational in Ruston, LA, against second-

The Lady Bulldogs were a feisty, game 
crew. Despite being generally shorter than 
almost all their opponents, they played well 
in most games. But the lack of a dominating 
offensive center put a heavy burden on the

Laura Springer, perhaps the most popular 
player with the fans, was an inside and out- 
side threat. 

Melinda Dudley and Julan Harris were 
both called upon to run the offenses and hit 
the long shots. Macsanna Pierce and Marie 
Morrison, a freshman and a senior, were 
defensive bulwarks in the middle. Gail Sims 
was a steady "sixth man" that played super- 
lative defense. Freshman Lisa Billingsley, 
while unable to see much playing time, 
showed obvious potential as a forward.

State wins at tennis 


lississippi State's Lady Bulldog net- 
ters gave a strong showing in fall 79, pre- 
paring for a run at the state title. The young 
tennis women, who included one senior, 
two juniors, two sophomores, and one 
freshman, posted an unblemished 5-0 mark 
against MAIAW competition with no less 
than four shutouts. Victims were Southern 
Mississippi, arch-rival Mississippi University 
for Women, and Mississippi College. 

The wins also included a second-place 
finish in the prestigious Western Kentucky 
Invitational Tournament in Bowling Green, 
Ky., in the season opener.

Some of MSU's best athletic entertain-

sophomore Debbie Dotson and junior Jean 
Gurney. The two women established them- 
selves as one of the best duos in the state as 
they chalked up a 9-3 record in their first 
semester together. 

Senior Jeannie Swain played number one 
singles. State also welcomed two women to 
the team, one new and one familiar. Fresh- 
man Michele Pavich found a spot instantly at 
sixth singles. And junior Liz Boykin returned 
to MSU after a brief stay at LSU.

the Region III tournament in Tuscaloosa, AL 
— a first for the lady spikers. 

The high point of the all-too-brief season 
came when Mississippi State played their 
first home match ever in the friendly con- 
fines of McCarthy Gymnasium. The match, a 
best-of-five showdown with bitter rival Mis- 
sissippi, went down to the last game as State 
fell just short of the upset. The game was 
enthusiastically received by students, and 
was carried live over WMSB-FM — another 
Lady Bulldog first. 

Under the quality tutoring of Jacobellis 
and with the support of all athletic facilities 
and staff, the Lady Bulldog "diggers" look 
to a brighter-than-ever future.

giate singles player. 

Boatwright: A welcomed addition 


I ans and players may not have known 
just what to expect of Mississippi State's 
most heralded addition to the Lady Bull- 
dogs, but SEC coaches did. In preseason 
voting, junior transfer Mary Boatwright was 
named to the 5-member All-Conference 
team — before the Memphis native had ever 
donned the Maroon and White colors. 

The "Boat" did not fail anyone, least of all 
the Lady Bulldogs. To backers of MSU wom- 
en's basketball, number 00 was Number 

After only two-thirds of the season had 
been played, the forward had already re- 
written several single-season and single- 
game records at State. Boatwright accom- 
plished in 22 games what the previous 
record-holders took over thirty contests to 
do. Among her marks: most points in a sin- 
gle game — 35 (also a Humphrey Coliseum 
mark); most points in a season, 522 after 23 
games; most field goals in one game, 15; 
and season field goals, 240 after 23 games. 

She set more than just Lady Bulldog 
standards — her impact was noticed in 
weekly AIAW statistics, where she took the 
lead midway through the season as the 
state's leading scorer. 

At one point, Boatwright scored over 20 
points in fifteen consecutive games. Only 
once in the year was she held below double- 
figures. More amazingly, this 5'8" forward 
led her team in rebounding, with over 7 
caroms a night, and in blocked shots. Sec- 
ond in assists, second in steals, the Boat did 
it all every game. 

Boatwright transferred to Mississippi 

State from Shelby State Community Colic 
a Memphis junior college. While play 
juco ball, she was the nation's third-leac 
scorer with an average of 27 points 
game. She was also a High School All-Ar I 
ican, and played in the first prepster 
America Game. 

"She's a great one-on-one player," Lj 
Bulldog Head Coach Peggy Collins s; 
"When the pressure is on, she's the oni! 
go to because she is capable of bustinjl 
Boat comes to play, and one way or anoil 
she is going to get points. She could bed 
first bonafide, top-level player State I 
had. I'm real proud of her." 

Boat came on slowly at first at State. I 
had some difficulty adjusting to playin I 
the larger arenas and Coliseums ofii 
MAIAW and the Southeastern Conferef 
But once she found the range, she n;< 
hesitated to pull the trigger when open.H 
value to the lady cagers on offense is il 
timable. She gave an added depth to Ml 
scoring threat from the wings and basei 
along with accomplished forwards L I 
Springer, Vicki McCall, and Melinda Ducfl 

Boatwright plays the total game. She! 
jumped, blocked out, and most of all, jl 
While only average-to-small for a forv'i 
her tremendous leaping ability gave he I 
"jump" on most opponents. Her all-arc r 
ability should make her a candidate for c 
lege All-Region and Ail-American tearr i 
a senior. 

For Mississippi State, that is the best a 
of Mary Boatwright — she's only a junio 


Climbing the ladder to success

Slowly, but surely, all facets of Lady 
Bulldog athletics are climbing the ladder to 
success. Volleyball and tennis have already 
broken through to competition in Region III 
tournament play. Basketball, which shares 
more and more facility use, training, and 
scheduling with the men's teams, is drawing 
greater interest on campus and around the 
state. And this season marked the debut of 
Softball as a varsity sport, though still classi- 
fied officially as a club sport. 

Under the fifth-year direction of Women's 
Athletics Coordinator Libba Birmingham, 
State has grown into a respected Regional 
force. In basketball coach Peggy Collins 
and volleyball coach Gina Jacobellis, MSU 
has two of the most gifted tacticians of their 
sports. Lady Bulldog athletics also benefit 
from the support of Athletic Director Carl 
Maddox, who is determined to give State as 
complete a program as can be found any- 

Dedicated scholar/athletes, serious 
coaches, professional support staff, and 
most of all, fans — all combine to make 
women's athletics at Mississippi State a 
proud part of Mississippi's largest univer-

I here's powerful magic in the Christmas 
spirit, maybe the only real magic left in our 
world. This magic is quite rampant at MSU. 
Christmas is celebrated in the true spirit it 
was meant to be celebrated. 

Hours of hard work and planning are 
spent decorating the Union and different 
buildings on campus. The Kappa Sigma 
house had all the appearance of a peace- 

fully quiet Christmas card, yet inside th 
Christmas spirit was bubbly flowing.

Zommittee of 82 Hosts Legislators: Mississippi State Style 

L^overnment Appreciation Day was 
d Thursday, January 17. The day was 
insored by the Committee of 82. Hugh 
nmons, chairman of the committee, com- 
nted that the day was "a student spon- 
ed event to improve the relations 
ween the legislature and the university." 
he legislators arrived on campus late 
jrsday afternoon when they were taken 
he Enology Lab for a tour and a wine and 
3ese tasting get-together. Both the wine 
i the cheese were made at Mississippi 
te. Following the Enology lab tour the 
islators were escorted to the Union ball- 
<m for a banquet. Here each legislator 
s met by a student from the area where 
legislator served. This gave many stu- 

dents a chance to eat with and get to know 
the legislator from their hometown. After the 
banquet, a slide show entitled, "Partners in 
Progress" depicting the role of the legisla- 
tors interacting with the university was 
shown. The legislators were then taken to 
the Coliseum to watch the MSU vs. Tennes- 
see basketball game. At halftime Janet 
Green presented Senator Bill Harpole with a 
plaque from Mississippi State to hang in the 
Senate in Jackson. Steve Grafton presented 
a similar plaque to Representative Cecil 
Simmons for the house of Representatives. 
Following the game the legislators were pre- 
sented with balls of Edam cheese by the 
Committee of 82. 

The day proved to be a great success, 
thanks to the hard work of many students, 
and in the future will be an annual affair.

I or the last couple of years we have 
tried to produce two plays each semester," 
said Dr. Dominic Cunnetto. As the director 
of the MSU Theater, the professor of com- 
munications is responsible for selecting and 
scheduling the plays produced by the 
Department of Communications and Black- 
friars Drama Society. 

"We try to select different types of plays, 
and we try to have each play we produce 
cover a different period in history." 

The time from the first try-outs to the pro- 
duction of a play "is about six to seven 
weeks," according to Cunnetto. "That's 
with rehearsals each night, Monday through 

"When I know there are a lot of people 
interested in trying-out, I try to choose a play 
that has a large cast. On the average we 
have 40 to 50 students try-out for each play. 
Persons trying-out are asked to read a cer- 
tain selection from the play. Those who do a 
good job are asked to come back and read 
for us again." 

The directors of the plays are usually 
members of the Communications Depart- 
ment faculty. Theater instructor Mimi Carter 
has directed at least one play each semes- 
ter for the past year and this year directed 
the first MSU production of the fall semes- 
ter, "After the Rain." 

Working -behind stage on each play are 
ten to 15 students under the supervision of 
Technical Director Wayne Durst. Durst is in 
charge of designing and building the sets 
for each play and also supervises make-up, 
lighting and sound. 

270 / The Entertainm 

he Making of a Play 

Preparations for a play range from 
reading scripts to still life posing to 
making up. Although the audience 
only sees the finished product, 
there is much more to the play than 
what appears on stage opening 
night. Weeks of rehearsing and 
hours of before-hand preparation 
combine to make a play what it is.

I he second term of summer school was 
brightened by the MSU Communication 
Department and the Union's joint produc-

finds himself in a constant struggle with life 
in the city of Manhattan, a contest which he 
is losing miserably. The apartment he and 
his wife Edna (Marie Lyons) share has no

detail of the lives of their neighbors. But Mel 
and Edna are determined not to give up the 
"good life" without a fight. 

Other cast members included Linda Bast, 
Jean Carmichael, John Jordan, Denise Mar- 
tin and Cassandra Heard. The play was 
directed by Dr. Dominic Cunnetto and the 
assistant director was Jimmie Canterbury. 

The Department of Communications and 
the Blackfrairs Drama Society opened their 
fall season with After the Rain. In the play 
the survivors of a flood set up a new society 
"developed along benevolent but clearly 
authoritarian lines." The play was directed 
by Mimi Carter and the cast included 
George Jackson, Jamie Oakman, Sabrena 
Ponds, Michael Kelley and Brad Pearson. 

Robin Blackledge as Barbara Allen and 
David Maxey as John the Witch Boy were 
featured in Dark of the Moon. The play, 
based on tbe ballad, "Barbara Allen," is the 
story of John the Witch Boy and how he 
wants to become a human being to win the 
love of Barbara Allen. But when he is trans- 
formed into a human, it is under the condi- 
tion that Barbara Allen must be faithful to 
him for one year or he will forfeit his human-

hen Jimmy Buffett came to the Humphrey Coliseum the MSU stu- 
dents were extremely excited. Since many of Buffett's songs tell of Missis- 
sippi and mention towns the students can relate to, they stood in line for 
hours to get tickets. It proved worthwhile. Buffett came on stage in a Missis- 
sippi State jersey to prove that he felt right at home. In accord with many of 
Buffett's songs, which speak of alcohol and getting drunk, the rum-soaked 
crowd appeared to be supporting Buffett's lyrics 

Opening for Buffett were the Amazing Rhythm Aces, one of the most tal- 
ented bands in the South. Although the crowd was restless, the Aces 
pleased them with a very impressive set

Musicmakers Responsible for Successful Concert 

^^t first glance, the job of Bonnie Boozer seems like a pretty easy one. As direc- 
tor of the MSU Music Makers, all she has to do is take the $30,000 per semester her 
organization receives from student activity fees and schedule concerts. That's all, 

Negotiations for booking a group at MSU begin when the Music Makers contact 
an act's agent or is contacted by that agent. The area the group is touring in figures 
significantly in these negotiations. It is too costly for a performer to come from one 
area of the nation to another for one evening, so Music Makers looks for groups 
which are touring the South. According to Boozer, State is a good university for 
bands to perform at because it is located between Memphis, New Orleans and 
Atlanta, prime concert performance locations. 

Once the contract is signed, the Music Makers begin preparing for the actual day 
of the concert. Advertising begins two weeks before the concert and tickets are 
printed and sent to the locations which handle the organization's ticket sales. 

Each band's road crew must do a 
variety of preliminary work before 
the band can even come on stage. 
Some of the pictures here show 
them doing such things as moving 
amplifiers, unloading and adjusting 
the lighting grid, setting up the 
lighting console and connecting 
the line power supply. These are 
just a few of the things the road 
crew is responsible for and it is 
largely because of them that a con- 
cert is a success or a failure.

■ eter Frampton, back on the road after 
a two-year absence caused by a car acci- 
dent, made his appearance in Humphrey 
Coliseum on October 23. Although his hair 
was shorter, Frampton showed his audi- 
ence that he has not changed his style or 
his ability to thrill a crowd. Singing many of 
his older songs, combined with cuts from 
his latest album, Where I Should Be, Framp- 
ton proved that he has not lost his touch. 
The crowd was on its feet and quickly 
approaching the stage during his encore, in

decade-old saga of America in the first con- 
cert of the fall semester in the Humphrey 
Coliseum. The fine set in which the band 
ended with an encore performance of their 
first big hit, "A Horse with No Name," illus- 
trated that for now, anyway, America is 
aging like a bottle of fine wine. 

The only sour note in the concert was the 
attendance — only 3,116 students 



First Homecoming Week Is a "Super" Celebratior 


M s 

ississippi State: The Portrait of a 
Winner" — with that theme in mind, MSU set out 
to celebrate the week of Homecoming, with all 
events building up to State's Homecoming Day 
football game with the University of Southern 

The Union Program Council sponsored a 
series of events centered around one of Ameri- 
ca's all-time winners, Superman. The events 
included a chance for students to be photo- 
graphed as the Man of Steel, a Super Cowbell 
contest, a Super band in the Union Lobby called 
"The Boys from Boardtown" and a showing of 
"Superman: The Movie" in the Union Ballroom. 

All over campus sororities, fraternities, dorms, 
and organizations put in a lot of late hours putting 
in a "super" effort on their Homecoming signs. 
The Famous Maroon Band won the organizations 
category, while Duggar was first among men's 
residence halls and McKee placed first among 
girls' Pi Kappa Alpha placed first among fraterni- 
ties and Zeta Tau Alpha captured top honors in 
the sororities category. 

The non-athletic events of the week were cap- 
ped by a Homecoming Parade on Friday night. 
The Maroon Band led the way, winding around 
campus to a bonfire at Fraternity Row which illu- 
minated one of the biggest pep rallies in State 
history. MSU's own "Superman," Head Coach 
Emory Bellard, provided the highlight of the eve- 
ning by praising students for "having yourselves 
one hell of a time out here" and then bringing the 
entire Bulldog football team on stage to lead the 
crowd in a round of, "Do it like a Big Dog!"

' ith all of the smoke, lasers, flashpots 
and giant curtains, many of the 5500 per- 
sons who say the Kansas performance in 
Humphrey Coliseum left wondering whether 
they had seen a rock concert of "Star Wars 
on Tour." Indeed, it seemed that the only 
things missing were Darth Vader, the Death 
Star and George Lucas. 

Despite all of the hardware, it was evident 
immediately that Kansas' most important 
consideration was the music, and this band 
had definitely come to play

I he skill and feeling the band put into its 
set was no surprise to those who had fol- 
lowed it's studio work, but when hearing 
and seeing that virtuosity live, combined 
with Kansas' stage presentation, the result 
was a concert which was one of the best 
MSU has ever seen 

Highlighting the evening were the per- 
formances of Robby Steinhardt and Steve 
Walsh Steinhardt's violin solos fit perfectly 
with the musical background the rest of the 
band set up for him and he executed his 
jazz-style'' solos with both excitement and 
mergy Walsh led the band with excellent 
cal and keyboard work 
The warm-up band Sniff n the Tears drew 
a lukewarm reaction from the crowd. The 
band's performance was competent enough 
but offered little variation in style of inten- 
sity, and sounded like a Bob Dylan pastiche 
to boot Billy Lampkin, REFLECTOR Enter- 
tainment Editor, observed, "When Sniff n 
the Tears concluded their set the crowd 
stood and cheered Either they liked their 
last song (the band's hit single, Driver's

was hard to tell "

"The Group" Controversy 

WaterState: Disrupts SA Election 7< 

I h 

below: Alan Nunnelee testifies 
before the Judicial Council on the 
first night of "The Group" hearings 
in the Extension Center Auditorium. 
Nunnelee and Donna Massey, who 
were both defeated in the first SA 
presidential race, filed the com- 
plaint with the Elections Commis- 
sion which resulted in the rescis- 
sion of the presidential race. Nun- 
nelee backed his claims with a 
detailed description of his initiation 
ceremony into the "Group," a list of 
the names of "Group" members 
and taped telephone conversations 
between himself and Phil Posey. 
right: SA Attorney General Joel Yel- 
verton answers a question from JC 
Chairman Faye Petro. 

I he Group" — for over 50 years that 
name has probably been two of the most 
controversial words in Mississippi State Stu- 
dent Association politics. It was with that 
background that the name of "The Group" 
surfaced once again in SA elections in the 
spring of 1979, setting into motion one of 
the most controversial series of events in 
recent SA history. 

Four days after his landslide victory in the 
SA presidential election, Steve Grafton 
found his win wiped out when the SA Elec- 
tions Commission rescinded the election. 
Grafton was charged with three major cam- 
paign violations stemming from his alleged 
involvement with an illegal political organi- 
zation. The commission also filed similar 
charges against Phil Posey, who had been 

defeated in his bid for a second term as S, 

The Judicial Council held 25 hours c 
hearings over three nights and called 1 8 wi 
nesses to determine whether "The Group 
was in fact an illegal political organizatio 
and whether Grafton and Posey were guilt 
of the three major campaign violations wit 
which they had been charged. 

During the hearings, seven of the person 
named as "Group" members, includin 
Grafton, testified, and all stated that the 
were members of the "Group." All followe 
Grafton's lead in maintaining they did nc 
know the organization was illegal and di 
not feel that it was an organization, anywa' 
But on the final night of the hearing, forme 
student E. B. Martin testified on Grafton 
behalf and surprised everyone by producin 

and reading a copy of the "Group" initiation 

The Elections Commission produced a 
surprise of its own when during its final 
arguments it asked that the charges against 
Grafton be reduced to minor campaign vio- 
lations. In its final ruling the Judicial Council 
tound that "The Group" was an illegal politi- 
cal organization. It also found Grafton guilty 
of minor campaign violations and fined him 
$45, but ruled that he was eligible to run in a 
second presidential election. In the end, 
Grafton won the second election by an even 
larger majority than he did in the first. 

But the questions remained.

editor, Joe Dillon, instituted another 
change by creating an "editorial 
board'' consisting of a varying num- 
ber of students who discussed 
campus issues and printed their 
compiled opinions in an editorial. 
Dillon's own editorials were often 
quite controversial — he wrote one 
editorial lashing out at Dean Behr 
for "not seeing students" after a 
student writer was unable to con- 
tact the dean about registration. 
Unbeknownst to Dillon, registration 

was handled by an associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences. Dil-

Since the Mississippi 
State Union is after all the 
"student union," the 
responsibility of planning 
programming for the Union 
quite naturally falls to the 
students, and the organiza- 
tion which coordinates and 
directs that planning is the 
Union Program Council. 
Under the supervision of 
Union Student Director 
Lydia Lofton, the members 
of the UPC headed commit- 
tees which planned pro- 
grams and activities for stu- 
dents in the Union facilities. 

"The word 'student' was 
always what we emphasized 
and kept in mind whenever 
we planned an activity," 
commented Lofton. "Every- 
thing in the Union has been 
built with the idea of servic- 
ing students. We see our 
role as one of supplement- 
ing those services." 

The UPC played a major 
role in celebrating the week 
of MSU's Homecoming with 
a series of events based on 
the comic book and movie 
character "Superman." The 
activities included a Super 
Cowbell Contest, judged by 

such luminaries as Coach 
Emory Bellard and Bob 
"Bully" Lemmons, a Super 
Change contest and an 
opportunity for students to 
have their picture taken as 
America's favorite hero. 

The UPC Entertainment 
Committee sponsored the 
Wednesday "UPC Movie of 
the Week" in the Union Ball- 
room. The series brought 
some of the finest examples 
of Hollywood's recent 
efforts to MSU students, 
blockbusters like "Super- 
man," Robert Altman's, 
"Quintet," William Gold- 
man's "Magic," "Watership 
Down," "Sherlock Holmes' 
Smarter Brother," "Invasion 
of the Body Snatchers" and 
Steven Speilberg's "Jaws." 
The chairman of this com- 
mittee was Pat Smith. 

"We tried to get only mov- 
ies which had been released 
within the last year or so," 
Smith said. "We were espe-

The military has always 
been an important part of life 
at State, which began as a 
military school. Students 
were required to wear uni- 
forms, spent their after- 
noons at work or in drill and 
were subject to strict military 

Although, compulsory 
ROTC was abolished in the 
early 1970's, the Air Force 
ROTC continues the task of 
training students for duty as 
officers in the U.S. Air 

First and second year 
cadets were instructed in 
the basics of military history 
and drill. Third and fourth 
year cadets received 
advanced training as well as 
preliminary flight training. 
Cadets who continued into 
the third and fourth year 

program agreed to serve a 
specified term of duty in the 
Air Force in exchange for an 
officer's commission. 

Besides their service in 
one of the AFROTC's two 
cadet squadrons, cadets 
could also participate in the 
Blue Knights, AFROTC's 
select drill team, or the 
Color Guard, which pre- 
sented the colors at all of 
Mississippi State's home 
football games during the 
1979 season. 

AFROTC-related service 
projects were handled by 
the Arnold Air Society, the 
Air Force ROTC Honorary, 
and Angel Flight. 

Angel Flight serves as 
hostesses at all formal 
AFROTC functions. Its mem- 
bers are selected each fall 
by a rush process.

Military Alive Today 


landatory ROTC dis- 
appeared during the early 
1970's, but the Reserve 
Office Training Corps pro- 
gram at MSU continues its 
task of producing qualified 
Army officers. Recent years 
have brought a new look in 
the first and second year 
programs. Students partici- 
pating in the first half of the 
program are not required to 
march or wear a uniform. In 
class they study military his- 
tory and leadership and par- 
ticipate in lab programs 
which include survival train- 
ing and marksmanship. The 

third and fourth year 
advanced course programs 
are still used to prepare the 
cadets mentally and physi- 
cally for military service. The 
cadets receive their com- 
missions as second lieuten- 
ants upon graduation. 

The Army ROTC Cadet 
Staff aids cadet instructors 
in ROTC classes, plans any 
training operation and does 
any special projects that are 
assigned. The cadet staff 
also plans the Spring Mili-

Future Leaders 

I or a time, the administra- 
tion ot Student Association 
President Steve Grafton was a 
veritable muckraker's dream 

First Grafton's involvement 
with an "illegal political organi- 
zation" known as "The Group" 
cost him his victory in the SA 
presidential election The 
charges against him were 
reduced to minor campaign vio- 
lations by the Judicial Council, 
allowing him to run in a second 
presidential race which, like the 
first one, he won by a landslide. 

The smoke from that battle 
was still lingering in the air 
when Grafton brought the name 
of Durr Boyles before the SA 
Senate for approval as Attorney 
General. During the "Group" 
hearings Boyles, a Judicial 
Council member, had been 
named as a member of "The 
Group." Boyles had finally step- 
ped down from his post, but 

only after numerous efforts by 
the SA Elections Commission to 
have him removed for "conflict 
of interest." Boyles' appoint- 
ment was approved, but only 
after many Senators ques- 
tioned his "impartiality " 

This trend continued during 
the fall semester when the SA 
Senate elections became the 
third straight election in less 
than a year to be rescinded. 
This time the Elections Com- 
mission did not set up enough 
polling places for the Day Stu- 
dent elections. Initially, only the 
Day Student elections were to 

In early October the Student Asso- 
ciation attended a leadership work- 
shop at Camp Lake Stephen, 
located just outside of Oxford. 
Although they worked hard to 
achieve their goal of learning their 
responsibilities, there was time for 
rest and recreation

As a school which began 
primarily as an agricultural 
college, Mississippi State 
has always had a special 
interest in the environment 
of man's world. The Wildlife 
Society, the Society of 
American Foresters, and the 
Forest Products Research 
Society continue this tradi- 
tion by aiding in the quest 
for more effective uses of 
our resources. 

Speakers invited by the 
clubs range from a specialist 
on endangered species to a 
champion duck caller. 

Although most of the 
members of these clubs are 
Forestry or Wildlife Biology 
members, students from 
every major participate. 

The clubs also invite 
members to inform club 
members on career oppor- 
tunities in the field of fores- 
try as well as sponsoring 
special film and slide pres- 

The groups also occa- 

sionally sponsor trips and

strengthen relations 

between professional indus- 
try and the black commu- 
nity. SBE activities include 
individual counseling for 
members, such as tutorial 
referrals, career guidance 
and personal counseling for 
members that need it. The 
society also provides mem- 
bers scholarship informa- 
tion, job information, gradu- 
ate school information and 
information on seminars and 
symposiums. The SBE also 
interacts with other college 
organizations and profes- 
sional societies and pro-

The members of the Ameri- 
can Nuclear Society must have 
felt a bit uncomfortable at times 
during a year when the com- 
mercial use of nuclear energy 
became one of the most con- 
troversial issues in the United 
States since the Vietnam War. 
To better prepare its members 
for their chosen professions, 
the MSU nuclear society invited 
guest speakers to its monthly 
meetings, and also participated 
in the meetings of the state's 
professional chapter of the 
American Nuclear Society. 
Members also attended the 
society's regional meeting at 
the University of Tennessee to 
present technical research 

papers, on both the graduate 
and undergraduate levels.

longer just be "a man's world."

sought to teach its members 
more about their ever-changing 
careers and help them gain a

The Wanawake Honor 
Society has the distinction 
of being the first organiza- 
tion for and by Black women 
on the MSU campus. It was 
founded on February 5, 
1 974, and was the brain 
child of Dada Pauline Fields, 
an instructor in the Foreign 
Language Department. The 
society's operations are 
similar to those of traditional 
sororities, except that 
Wanawake heralds African 
heritage rather than that of 
the Greeks. The organiza- 
tion offers a unique three- 
point program based on 
scholarship, service and sis- 
terhood. The Essette Club is 
the official pledge club of 
the Wanawake Society and 
is composed of college 
women who aspire toward 
high educational achieve- 
ment, finer womanhood and 
a closer union among Black 
college women.

MSU's excellent Fashion 
Board added male members 
to its squad in fall 1979. 
Each new model selected to 
serve on the board went 
through a series of inter- 
views, tryouts and tea par- 
ties in the fall, then received 
training in modeling before 
appearing in the fashion 
shows held in the fall and 
spring. The Fashion Board 
assisted in recruiting for 
MSU, served as hosts and 
hostesses for campus 
events, and helped to create 
an awareness of fashion 
among other students on 

campus. Positions on the 
Fashion Board are highly 
coveted and prestigious, 
and many students compete 
for these positions. The 
board, composed of stu-

statewide reputation for 
excellence since its creation 
in 1972.

I he sight became even more famil- 
iar in 1980 — strong legs pummeling 
determinedly, chest heaving, tongue 
lolling, breaths short and raspy — but 
it's not jogging anymore, it's running, 
and almost everyone tried it — stu- 
dents, staff, professors, their kids, and 
even their dogs. 

Running, when it's not overdone, 
has a long list of physical, mental and 
emotional benefits. Stronger and 
healthier lungs and heart, improved 
muscle tone, and relief of excess ener- 
gies are some of the most frequently 
cited physical benefits of running. 
Those who run daily believe that they 
are more mentally alert, possibly 
because they are tired enough at the 
end of the day to get a good night's 
sleep. Some runners have taken to the 
track simply because it serves as an 
emotional release. "I was getting so 
uptight at my job that I developed an 
ulcer," said one regular female runner 

Judy Hocking 

Taking It All in Stride 

at the stadium. "My doctor told me to 
exercise, and running seems to 
release my frustrations better than 
anything else." 

Paperback books about running 
were bestsellers in fall 1979, and those 
copies that found their way to the 
shelves of the Bookstore and the cam- 
pus Book Mart were no exception. A 
new magazine about running, too, was 
popular with students. Warm-up suits 
and shoes especially designed for run- 
ning sold quickly in Starkville shops. 

"Running's the greatest thing I ever 
did for myself," said one middle-aged 
Starkville man. "I can have a really rot- 
ten day at work and home, but if I run 
that day, then I've done something 
good, something positive, for my mind 
and body, and especially for my spirit. I 
have accomplished something after 
all, and that's a tremendous boost in 
my morale." 

Judy Hocking displays an expression of agoi 
during her daily sprint across campus.

Behind the Scenes: 

■ laying football for the MSU Bull- 
dogs is a full-time, rigorous job, and its 
rewards are many, according to Head 
Football Coach Emory Bellard. 

"Preparing our players for the game 
begins many years before they ever 
come to MSU," said Bellard. "Junior 
high and high school football contrib- 
utes to a player's experience, condi- 
tioning and physical skills as much or 
more than football practice in college 

The weekdays between games are 
hectic, with each day's practice plan- 
ned far in advance for the best possi- 
ble success — a well-played game. 

right: Barry Hay looks for an opening in a wall of

There's More to a Football 
Game Than Meets the Eye. 

Sundays are reserved for discussing 
the past day's game; coaches meet 
with players, look at films of the game, 
and critique players by pointing out 
both their mistakes and good points. 
These films, according to Bellard, are 
major keys to improving the games 
from week to week. 

Monday's practice always includes 
an hour of an on-the-field account of 
the Bulldogs' next opponent, and films 
are shown to familiarize the players 
with their next opponent. On Tuesday, 
a breakdown of each player's role in 
the oncoming game is completed, and 
players, practice on the field for two 
hours. Team play, rather than individ- 
ual roles in the game, are outlined on 
Wednesday, and at the end of Monday, 
Tuesday, and Wednesday practice, 
players go back to the athletic complex 
to exercise and lift weights. 

Practice on Thursday lasts only an

something well many times. " 

hour, and on Friday, from 1 5 minutes to 
an hour. "After Friday's workout, the 
players all eat together and stay in their 
accommodations at the game site with 
lights out at 1 1 :00," said Bellard. 

On Saturday, the day of the game, 
players eat their pre-game meal 
together at 9:30 a.m., followed immedi- 
ately by squad and group meetings. 
Players are taken to the stadium one- 
and-a-half hours before kick-off. 

Thirty-two minutes before kick-off, 
the entire team goes through the 
stretching program to loosen up for the 
game; they leave the field fifteen min- 
utes before their big moment. 

"Time spent in practice," Bellard 
emphasized, "creates in each player a 
rare blend of relaxation and confi- 
dence which permits him to play at his 
very best. An unrelaxed player, says 
Bellard, inevitably makes mistakes. 
"Confidence," he concluded, "is the 
result of doing something well many

toorehead Twins Find Life Twice as Fun 

i reflection in a mirror, Jack (on the left) 
im keep people guessing which identical 
s which. "People always ask us if we mind 

people confusing us with one another. Well, 
what can we say?" 


w w e each answer to both of 
our names," said Jim Moorehead of 
Starkville, the elder of the Moorehead 
twins by eight minutes. Jack nooded in 

"People always ask us if we mind 
people confusing us with one another. 
Well, what can we say? After being 
identical twins for 19 years, we're 
pretty used to it," said Jack. 

Jim and Jack Moorehead of 
Starkville are redhaired identical twins 
majoring in general business. They 
have the same advisor, the same 
classes and instructors, and claim to 
have identical interests and even iden- 
tical thoughts to a certain degree. 

"Well, it is true that we do almost 
everything together," said Jim. "But 
it's mainly because we've only got one 
car between the two of us." 

The twins do admit that they're very 
close friends as well as brothers. "One 
of our favorite activities is baseball," 
Jack reported. "We're trainers for the 
Diamond Dogs this year." 

The twins don't take advantage of 
their lookalike situation now, although 
they did when they attended high 
school at Starkville Academy. "We 
didn't have classes together in high 
school, and we'd switch places once in 
awhile," said Jim. "It kept the teachers 
guessing. The students usually knew 
what was going on because they could 
tell what clothes we each had on in the 
other classes." 

Jim and Jack said that one question 
they're asked almost daily is whether 
they like being twins. "We don't know 
anything different," said Jack. "We get 
along great most of the time. There's a 
lot of fun in having an identical twin 
brother, and we take advantage of the 
situation instead of complaining about 
the disadvantages."

Gina Jacobellis began coaching at 
MSU this year after receiving a Mas- 
ter's degree from Ole Miss. "We had a 
pretty fair season, despite our 13-20 
record," she said. "This year for the 
first time, we played in a Southeastern 
Conference for volleyball. All of my 11 
girls did a great job." 

Gina describes her job as being 
"fun." Coaching the volleyball team, 
she says, is time consuming — it 
involves making phone calls, writing 
letters and visiting other campuses for 
recruiting new players; traveling to out- 
of-state games; and practicing with the 
team several hours a day every day 
except Sunday. "It takes as much time 
as I want to put into it," she explained. 
"It's one of those jobs that never gets 

AH except one game, said Gina, were 
"away" games. "The reason students 
aren't aware that MSU has a girl's vol- 
leyball team," she said, "is because no 
home games were scheduled. I hope 
to change that next year, though. For 
the one home game we did have, 
though, there was a lot of student sup- 
port for the team." 

Gina plans to make at least one more 
change next year. "I hope we can play 
in the Coliseum, not McCarthy Gym," 
she said. "It's hard to coordinate 
schedules around the intramural pro- 
gram and physical education depart- 
ment." She's enthusiastic about next 
year's team. "Things went well this 
year," she said. "Next year things will 
be great."

Cheryl Sidney . . 

iomething to Cheer About 

«#ure, cheerleading is lots of 
hard work for long hours. But I 
wouldn't trade it for anything!" 

Cheryl Sidney, an accounting major 
from Greenville, tried out for cheer- 
leader as a sophomore and won a pos- 
ition as alternate for the squad. She 
tried out again this past year and again 
received a position as alternate; she 
became a member on the squad when 
one cheerleader dropped out after 
summer, 1979. 

"It's really an honor to be allowed to 
show my spirit and enthusiasm for 
MSU as a cheerleader," she said. "I've 
been coming to MSU football games 
since I was a young girl, and I've 
always watched the cheerleaders, 
especially since I was a high school 
cheerleader. It makes me very happy 
to be one of them." 

It isn't easy to become a cheerleader 
for the Bulldogs anymore than it's easy 
to be one. According to Cheryl, 
approximately 25 girls and 20 guys 
tried out for about five minutes each, 
and each was judged on double stunts, 
a pompom routine, personality, 
appearance, spirit, individual cheers 

"I've been coming to MSU football 
games since I was a young girl, and 
I've always watched the cheerlead- 

and chants and spoken interviews. 
When the squad was chosen, they 
began practicing as a group, then 
chose partners. During the summer, 
the Bulldog cheerleading squad 
attended a national cheerleading camp 
at Memphis State in Tennessee. 

During football season the cheer- 
leaders met Monday, Tuesday and 
Wednesday for one and a half hours. 
Pep rallies were held Thursday, and on 
Friday the squad headed for that week- 
end's game site; this year the squad 
traveled as far as Maryland to cheer 
the Bulldogs on. 

"The cheerleaders grow very much 
to one another as football season 
wears on," said Cheryl. "We watch 
and criticize one another's cheerlead- 
ing because we want to be a very good 
squad. We all enjoy working together, 
and we especially grow close to and 
begin to understand our partners. The 
friendships I have gained are well 
worth the hard work of being a cheer- 
leader for MSU."

busts, bake sales, hamburgers, coffee 
and doughnuts, and colas ... all added 
to her usual three-meal-per-day diet. 

Correcting the extra weight problem 
has its fads like everything else. The 
Scarsdale Diet, the Citrus and Protein 
Diet, the Grapefruit Plan, the No-Car- 
bohydrate Diet, and the All-Carbohyd- 
rate Diet were some of this year's 
favorites. Running, shunning elevators 

in favor of stairs, and joining in intra- 
mural sports and exercise classes 
were popular methods of reducing 
chubby stomachs and thighs. 

Dieting, once begun, often becomes 
an obsession: which diet causes fast- 
est reducing? Which is more nutrition- 
ally sound? Which is least expensive? 
Which ones are starvation diets, which 
ones will keep the pounds off once 
they've been lost? 

The skinnies who can't participate in 
the frequent dormitory debates about 
diets have been known to form weight- 
gaining organizations in revenge: more 
frequently, though, they sigh and wait. 
The mass dieting usually ends, they 
know, with the coming of warm 
weather, when even the most seden- 
tary students become active calorie- 
burners, and another winter of anti-fat 
fads is laid to rest.

idents in Pathogenic Microbiology Lab work 
rt human pathogens ranging from Staphylo- 
ccus aureus to Diplococcus pneumoniae. 

Here, Tamy Corolla and Brenda Pritchard pour 
agar into petri plates for the isolation of unknown 
Enteric bacteria, such as Salmonella typhi and 
Shigella sonnei. 



■ n this course you will be work- 
ing with bacteria which are capable of 
causing serious disease in human 
beings. There are thirteen rules that 
are designed to protect your health, 
the health of those around you, and the 
health of others who use the labora- 

The thirteen laboratory rules for 
Pathogenic Microbiology Lab 2214 
reflect the nature of the experimental 
work performed by the students and 
emphasize the necessity of using 
extreme care while in the lab. 

This course, usually taken by pre- 
med, microbiology and medical tech- 
nology majors, deals with human 
pathogens, or bacteria which cause 
disease in humans (in laymen's terms). 
Streptococcus pneumomiae, Staphy- 
lococcus aureus, and Corynebacter- 
ium diphtheriae are a few of the patho- 
gens studied in this course. So it's 
obvious that a student can get more 
out of this course than just a grade. 

Such experiments as isolating and 
identifying unknown bacteria from a 
given culture by the use of selective 
media and biochemical tests are com- 
monly performed in the lab. Injecting 
white mice with varying concentrations 
of Diplococcus pneumoniae and 
observing them for mortality rates is 
one of the more unique and potentially 
dangerous lab experiments students 

Patience, concentration, and proper 
technique are required to obtain good 
results in such tedious and time-con- 
suming experiments. 

Mark Matthews, a junior pre-med major, streaks 
a plate of selective media for the isolation of an 
unknown bacteria.

Miracle Healings, 
and the Common 
Cold: All in a 
Day's Work 

I he Student Health Center at Mis- 
sissippi State University treats approxi- 
mately one hundred students per day. 
"The most common complaints are 
colds, sore throats, coughs and ear- 
aches," said Mrs. Margaret Tomlinson, 
head nurse. "Of course we see our 
share of hypochondriacs who are 
invariably sicker than anyone else, and 
students still come in feigning illness to 
get out of tests. But that's not as com- 
mon as it used to be." 

The Health Center has witnessed 
several "miracle healings," according 
to Mrs. Tomlinson. "One patient 
crushed a penicillin tablet and poured 
it in his eye. Another put a dramamine 
suppository in his ear to treat an infec- 
tion. Both patients, believe it or not, 
recovered remarkably!" 

There have been only two deaths in 
the Student Health Center since it was 
built; one student and one professor 
have died of heart attacks. "We call 
ambulances from the Oktibbeha 
County Hospital in emergencies," 
explained Mrs. Tomlinson. "The secu- 
rity officers are also authorized to call 

The Health Center is fully equipped 
with both a daytime and nighttime 
emergency room, a full lab, an X-ray 
room, dining facility, and physical ther- 
apy room. "We also have a full staff," 
said Mrs. Tomlinson. "With four doc- 
tors, 15 nurses, a dietician, three lab 
technicians, an X-ray technician, hos- 
pital administrator and full office staff, 
any student or faculty member is guar- 
anteed the best chance for recovery." 

The Student Health Center whirlpool offers a 
therapeutic remedy for Lisa Robbins' wrist.

Canadian-New Yorker Defines Southern Hospitality 


I here's lots of small differences 
between Canadians and Mississippi- 
ans," said Kathy Mott, a junior pre-med 
major whose family resided in Canada. 
"The first obvious difference is the cli- 
mate. Mississippi's coldest weather is 
like our October weather. Also, people 
in the South are so nice and polite, 
whereas Northerners are very straight 
forward. What do you call it — South- 
ern hospitality?" 

Even after three years at Mississippi 
State, Kathy hasn't lost her northern 

accent. "People find out that I'm from 
Canada and the first thing they want to 
know is why I don't have a French 
accent. I can't even speak French 
except for a few phrases!" Kathy 
quickly points out that she's originally 
from Buffalo, New York. "We moved 
when I was 13 or 14," she said, 
"across Lake Erie to the Canadian 
side. I finished high school in New 
York." She laughed. "Even in New 
York kids asked me if it was terribly 
cold in Canada, just a few miles away!" 

Kathy, who serves as a resideni 
assistant in Rice dorm, says she "really 
loves MSU." Both of her parents are 
graduates of MSU, and next year she'l 
have two of her five siblings living or 
campus near her. 

"I will apply to go to medical schoo 
in Mississippi, but I'd really prefer to gc 
to McGill in Quebec," she said. "As foi 
the immediate future, I can't wait to ge 
back to Canada this summer to go sail 
ing on Lake Erie."

Architecture Students Learn Early 
in Annual Egg Drop 

e of the few structures which survived the fall 
lonorably displayed. 

■ lop! 

"It cracked," called one of the fresh- 
man architecture majors standing in 
the big circle outside the Architecture 

"Look out!" called someone on the 
other side, craning his neck upward 
watching yet another freshman archi- 
tecture project falling to the concrete 
ground from a height of thirty feet, 
"Shafer's throwing them wild!" 

Advanced architecture students 
stand outside with the freshmen during 
the fall semester "egg drop." The egg 
drop is one of the first projects that 

architecture students hand in. The stu- 
dents must construct a structure of 
toothpicks and Elmer's glue that will 
protect an egg from cracking when 
dropped from a height of 30 feet. Very 
few succeed. 

"I've seen some really 'way out' 
designs," said one fourth year archi- 
tecture student. "The whole school 
goes outside to watch the projects 
drop. One guy actually made a para- 
chute of 1 00% Elmer's glue attached to 
a little basket made of toothpicks. His 
project didn't succeed, but it certainly 
was original."

Bonnie Boozer Plans Career in Entertainment Bookinq 


onnie Boozer, an art major with a 
gree in advertising from the Univer- 
/ of Florida and director of MSU's 
jsic Makers, has had her hands full 

the past two years. Trying to please 
student body of 14,000 and still main- 
n the responsibilities of being direc- 

of an organization as productive as 
isic Makers is quite a task. 
A/hat used to be known as the Social 

Committee has grown into the most 
organized and professional student 
group on campus. "Because of the 
huge responsibility of dealing with 
money and professional people we 
must treat Music Makers like a busi- 
ness, a business with the goal of pleas- 
ing the student body with presenting as 
many different types of music for them 
as possible," commented Boozer. 

Since last January Bonnie and heV 
fellow Music Makers have been 
responsible for bringing a variety of dif- 
ferent styles of music to MSU's cam- 
pus. Jimmy Buffett, Billy Joel, Heart, 
America, Peter Frampton, and Kansas 
are only a few of the acts which have 
appeared on campus. 

Besides being involved with Music 
Makers Bonnie is on the Coliseum 
Advisory Board, MSU's Student Repre- 
sentative for NECCA (National Enter- 
tainment and Campus Activities Asso- 
ciation), a member of its Steering Com- 
mittee for the Southeastern Region of 
the U.S., and on the subcabinet of the 

Bonnie feels that her work with 
Music Makers has not only given her 
the opportunity to work with many dif- 
ferent types of people, but it also has 
been a true learning experience. Many 
booking agents are quite amazed with 
how truly organized and professional 
Music Makers are. 

"The challenge involved in present- 
ing the best variety of entertainment 
for the student body is the real motivat- 
ing factor of my work, which I plan to 
continue from here," said Bonnie. 

Bonnie and her husband Bob are 
now in Mobile. Bonnie plans to con- 
tinue working in the field of entertain- 
ment booking in Alabama.

Spencer Adds Sparkle to Halftime Shows 

r\s the drums begin to roll MSU's 
Famous Maroon Band performs its out- 
standing rendition of Chuck Man- 
gione's "Children of the Sun." The sta- 
dium crowd is overwhelmed by the col- 
orful flags and the flashing batons and 
rifles performing simultaneously. An 
outstanding performance by MSU's 
band is nothing unusual. Each member 
of the band, auxiliary and marching 
musicians, has the background and 
expertise to put on a superior show 
each performance. 

Beth Spencer, MSU's blonde feature 
twirler, is certainly an expert in her 
field. She has been twirling since she 
was 8 years old and boasts over 450 
trophies to prove it. She was Miss 
Majorette of Mississippi for four con- 
secutive years, 1974-77, and has won 
over 20 state championships. At Notre 
Dame, Beth was National Drum Major 
Champion uring '76 and '77 and in the 
top 10 in the Miss Majorette of America 
sponsored by America's Youth on 

Besides being involved in state and 

national competitions, Beth was also a 
majorette for three years in the Ita- 
wamba High School Band, which had a 
total of 18 marching members and four 

Beth and Sherry Massey, her part- 
ner, spend approximately 10 hours a 
week preparing for their weekend per- 
formances. They each make up their 
own baton routines and work together 
on their struts, which are performed 
with the band. Beth, also a percussion- 
ist who plays the bells, explained the 
format she and Sherry use when mak- 
ing up their routines. "We use a cas- 
sette to practice our show, usually just 
varying the tricks we already know 
until they fit the featured song. We 
have much more freedom in our indi- 
vidual routines than struts, so it takes 
much less time than one would think to 
come up with a complete show." 

Time may not be essential but physi- 
cal stamina and much self confidence 
— the trademark of professionals — 

h Spencer thrills the crowds with her out- 
iding baton twirling feats.

Summer Sun 
Enlightens MSU 

Jumrner school isn't easy by 
any means," said one sophomore 
engineering major. "You cram an 
awful lot of material into one month of 
two-hour classes. But it's still a break; 
there's a lot more things you can do 
outdoors, and the countryside around 
campus is beautiful in summer." 

Students at MSU take full advantage 
of warm weather. Swimming at various 
pools, wading through Sessums 
Creek, picnicking, cooking out, playing 
tennis and badminton, and bicycling 
are some favorite summertime activi- 

"Summer school has its advantages 
and disadvantages," said a sun-tanned 
coed. "There's always lots of little kids 
on campus attending various camps, 
and if they beat you to the cafeteria at 
lunchtime, you'd better count on wait- 
ing at least an hour before eating. And 
the classes get so monotonous — it's 
study, study, study the same subject 
for five days a week. On the other 
hand, you have a chance to get four 

requirements out of the way, and if you 
get out of class at noon, you can lay 
out in the sun all afternoon." 

Some of the favorite swimming spots 
are "the Blue Hole," the university's 
Olympic-sized swimming pool, various 
apartment complex swimming pools, 
and Oktibbeha County Lake. "The 
lake's my favorite. I can't stand getting 
all the chlorine in my hair," said a 

bikini-clad student. "And I can brir 
my Labrador to the lake." 

"Summer school is great," said 
junior communications major, voicir 
the opinion held by many student 
"It's better than working any day."

;s Mazeres-Rdbinson / 405 

I he fashion trend that swept MSU 
in 1 979 was not new — it was a revival 
of the classics. Feminine styles 
returned to the late forties and early fif- 
ties. A-line slit skirts, plaids, and pleats 
all became popular again. Women, as 
well as men, sported corduroy blazers, 
buttoned down collar shirts, khakis, 
argyle and striped pullovers, and the 
ever-popular alligator-trimmed Izod 
shirt. Many MSU women considered it 
very chic to match up "unmatchables" 
— seersucker was paired with polyes- 
ter, rosy pink with navy blue, and 
stripes with plaids. Nevertheless, the 
traditional styles and pairings pre- 
vailed. Fancy socks and textured hose 
were often used to top off the perfect 
ladies' outfit. Young men were warm- 
ing up by teaming Polo's with flannels 
and buttondowns. Pleats were added 
and belt loops subtracted from men's 
pants while ties continued to narrow. 
Blue jeans, still a staple in college

"What hit me?" 

"Well, what do you think? It wasn't a fly- 
ing saucer." 

Students walking across MSU's Drill 
Field have to dodge whizzing Frisbees con- 
stantly, especially during warm weather. 
Sometimes even dogs get into the act, 
catching and retrieving Frisbees in midair 
in a game known as "K-9 Frisbee." 

"Frisbee isn't quite as big a sport at MSU 
as it is at other universities," said Pat Kraft, 
a forestry major from Gluckstadt. "But 
more and more people are playing all the 
time. We're starting an official chapter of 
the International Frisbee Association here. 
In the meantime, a bunch of us just get 
together and throw on the Drill Field or, 
once in a great while, in McCarthy Gym." 

Frisbee is probably popular chiefly 
because it requires only a Frisbee and two 
or more players. "Frisbee Golf," one of the 
many variations of the sport, is played like 
conventional golf, except that Frisbees are 
thrown to designated trees or other 
"goals," rather than golf balls being driven ' 
into holes. 

The most popular spot on campus for 
playing Frisbee is the Drill Field, chiefly 
because it's free of obstructions. Except, of 
course, students walking to class.

V^ur nation's youth have "turned 
mobile" with an evolving assortment of 
wheels from ten-speeds to skate- 
boards, and now — rollerskates. 

The rollerskate fad, the latest craze 
on campuses around the country, 
began when all the various disco steps 
had been mastered by the average 
"disco-er." Roller-disco emerged as 
an alternative — the participants can 
still utilize their dazzling disco "gear" 
and enjoy the additional excitement of 
practicing their gyrations on wheels. 

National magazines and primetime 
T.V. shows now feature special roller- 
disco clothes, roller-disco exercises, 
roller-disco commercials, and even 
plots centered on roller-disco, all 
nicely packaged to meet the roller 
disco budget. 

As all fads eventually do, the roller- 
disco madness reached Starkville and 
became a recognized form of enter- 

right: Veronica Frentz, Denise Adams, Beverly 
Branch, and Sandy Park found that they spent 
more time on the ground than on skates.

5uper Spirit Displayed by "Superman" McCrillis 

eing a superfan is superfun when 
ie loves the Bulldogs as much as Bill 

McCrillis need not wear the colors of 
SU and a flowing cape to prove that 
| is superfan — any "hard core" fan 
>uld vouch for the fact that in reality 
II McCrillis is always superfan. 
Since graduating in 1965 McCrillis 
*s shown his support for MSU con- 
antly by attending 8 to 10 games a 
sason every year since graduation, 
orida, Hawaii, Maryland, whenever 
le sees MSU's maroon and white, 
cCrillis will be there supporting the 
jlldogsto the max. 

McCrillis, concerned about school 
)irit being shown during games, 
tme up with the idea of a "character" 
image to show these MSU fans what 
Jlldog spirit truly is. After approxi- 
ately two months of intense thought 
id planning, McCrillis came up with 
e character, Superfan. 
The next step in McCrillis' plan was 

to convince Coach Bellard of the 
potential of Superfan. Coach Bellard's 
immediate support and backing gave 
McCrillis the confidence to go through 
with his plans. 

McCrillis' efforts in the MSU alumni 
section of the stadium never fail to go 
unnoticed. While the cheerleaders are 
busy in the student section McCrillis 
and the alumni wholeheartedly show 
their support — not only at football, but 
also at baseball and basketball games. 

"Superfan is there to give alumni an 
outlet to show how much they want 
their Bulldogs to win. It takes more 
than one of us to show the Bulldogs 
how much we are behind them," 
explained McCrillis. 

McCrillis, originally from Crystal 
Springs, MS, saw MSU's campus for 
the first time in the fall of 1965. He was 
overwhelmed by the attitudes and out- 
looks he saw here. "Mississippi allows 
the student of Mississippi to fully enjoy 
the college experience because there 
are so many different choices a stu- 

dent can make. MSU is so diversified 
that one can come and experience 
whatever one wants to do — within 
limits, of course. You can come on this 
campus and be whoever or whatever 
you want to be," continued McCrillis. 
"You leave with a completely different 
attitude, a philosophy of life that will 
affect you in whatever you do." 

McCrillis feels that college athletics 
are MSU's showcase — the one visual 
connection the public has of our 
school. "This is why it is so important 
to stress athletics. People who have 
never seen MSU or a MSU student will 
form an opinion of our school by the 
one thing they do see and hear of — 
our athletics. This is sad, but it's true." 

"MSU created an entirely new 
thought process for me. This is my way 
of paying back the school for every- 
thing it gave me. I may seem wild, 
crazy, excitable, or hyperactive in my 
support for MSU, but it is my way of 
showing MSU the love I have for it."

ASU's Rock Alternative . 

lYlSU's own campus radio sta- 
Dn, WMSB, initiated a great deal of 
aecial programming in fall 1979, 
eluding a 48-hour block of time 
jlled the "Black Experience," during 
hich "soul" and "rhythm and blues" 

The students who run WMSB frown 
ily upon "Top-40" music: the disc 

jockeys try to play music which their 
audience would not normally hear on 
other stations in the area. Known as 
"MSU's Rock Alternative, Serving You 
Something Different," the station tries 
to broadcast programs which suit the 
musical tastes of every individual 
within listening range. WMSB has a 
musical library of 5000 albums and 

therefore is fully equipped for its spe- 
cial programs, like "Beatles After- 
noons," "Jazzy Sundays" with "The 
Intrepid Fox," and a new program of 
classical music presently in the mak- 

This radio station runs solely on the 
volunteer power of*23 students who try 
to keep the station on the air seven 
days a week, 84 shifts a week, two 
hours per shift. Students also gather 
the information that makes up "The 
News Blimp" every evening, and 
broadcast "Down the Hall," a program 
in which the Inter-Residence Hall 
Council members discuss matters of 
particular importance to students living 
on campus. Any student, the station 
emphasizes, is welcome to enter the 
"ozone layer" of fourth floor Lee Hall 
to learn how to become a WMSB 89.1 
FM station disc jockey, to work on the 
news crew, or select music to be 
played from the vast store of albums 
located in the station.

ife in the Library 

of the many library workers helped check 
i book for a student as part of her daily work- 


«#mile, ask if you can help, and 
never turn anyone away saying, 'I don't 
know' — if you don't know where or 
how to find a book, then find out," the 
student workers at Mitchell Memorial 
Library are told on their first day on the 

Kim Henry, a freshman work-study 
student, works in the library's mono- 
graphs department. "I work 14 hours 
per week preparing and filing cards for 
the card catalog and working at the 
information desk," she said. "Believe 
me, there's not much time to study on 
the job!" 

Kim, like all library student workers, 
must work one night per week and 
adheres to her work schedule because 
the library depends largely on student 
help. "It's not always dull at the 
library," she said. "Once I had a guy 
stand on top of the information desk 
during my shift. And I have the privi- 
lege of entertaining the question, 
'Where are the books?' once in a while. 
Besides, working with students is fun 
because it's a great chance to meet 
new people."

Chapel Weddings 



lere comes the bride," sings 
the organ in MSU's Chapel of Memo- 
ries. "Isn't she beautiful?" the wedding 
guests whisper as they stand to see the 
young woman in white walk to the altar. 
"Don't cry, Mama," begs the embar- 
rassed younger sister at the bride's 
first "I do." Throughout it all, the can- 
dles gleam softly, their beauty almost 
matched with that of the late afternoon 
sun streaming thru the chapel's many 
small windows of colored glass. 

Chapel weddings, held fairly often in 
the summer months and holidays, are 
not available exclusively for students 
and children of MSU alumni — anyone 
can be married there. The church can 
be rented for three hours at a very 
inexpensive price of $15.00, and patio 
receptions lasting for an hour or less 
are' available for no extra charge. Two 
or three weddings could be held on the 

same day, but according to a Chapel of 
Memories spokesman, that doesn't 
happen very often. 

Chapel of Memories weddings are 
usually very small and simple; the 
church only seats 150 guests, and 
there have been times that latecomers 
have had to stand throughout the cere- 
mony. "Usually citizens of Starkville 
expect more guests than the Chapel 
can accommodate, or they have 
access to a church of their own," said 
the Chapel's spokesman. "And those 
who do get married here must find a 
minister who will perform the service. 
Quite often they get married in the min- 
ister's church after all." 

But for those who wish for quiet, 
beautiful weddings with family mem- 
bers and close friends, the conven- 
ience and low cost of a Chapel of 
Memories wedding can't be beaten.

I was a cheerleader for two 
years, and finally tired of routine cheer- 
leader stuff," said Bob Lemmons, a 
senior industrial technology major 
from Meridian. "I decided that being 
'Bully' would be a great opportunity to 
express myself in a fashion I'd never 
had a chance to do before." 

Bob tried out with other contestants 
for the 'Bully' role in front of seven 
judges on a specified point system 
evaluation. "Whoever plays Bully has 
to be in fairly good physical condition," 
said Bob. "The uniform is hot — it gets 
to be 120° in there." 

Bully has to be creative, too. "My 
reactions as Bully are very spontane- 

The Person, the "Dawg" 

ous," Bob continued. "I spend a great 
deal of time preparing skits, working 
with the band, and coming up with new 

"I love playing Bully," he said. 
"Being Bully puts me into another 
image. Bully and I are two different per- 
sonalities in one shell." 

Bob, who says he "loves being 
around people," also enjoys camping, 
backpacking, gymnastics, photogra- 
phy and public relations during quiet

Campus Celebrities 


I to have an expert attorney, a 
renowned writer, and the President of 
the United States as members of the 
student body at Mississippi State 
seems a bit far-fetched. Nevertheless, 
Perry Mason, Ralph Waldo Emerson, 
and Jimmy Carter attend classes Mon- 
day through Friday just as every other 
student does. These three men are 
members of a unique group of MSU 
students with famous names. 

Straight from the Hollywood silver 
screen, students such as James Gar- 
ner, a senior from Jackson; William 
Holden, a junior from Jackson; and 

>p: William Holden is one of the "famous" stu- 
ents on campus, above: Carol Burnett gives a 

jg of her ear, just like her celebrity namesake. 

Elizabeth Montgomery, a sophomore 
from West Point, go about their daily 
activities as if their names were infa- 

Musicians also roam the grounds of 
MSU. James Taylor takes time from his 
career to major in Forestry; and when 
not "shaking his body down to the 
ground," Michael Jackson studies 

Unfortunately, jokes and crank 
phone calls plague these students, 
sometimes often enough to become 
extremely disturbing. Carol Burnett — 
comedienne, actress, and education 
major — has been annoyed to the 
extent that she has considered chang- 
ing her name. "My parents named 
Carol by accident," she says, and her 
"accidental" name has been the cause 
of much frustration for her. 

Some of these students, however, 
enjoy their special titles. Katherine 
Ross, star of The Legacy from Bay St. 
Louis, is quite satisfied with her name. 
She does receive occasional sarcasm 
from people, but she overlooks it. She 
says, "Whether you let people's opin- 
ions influence you or not depends on 
the type of person you are." Her atti- 
tude is shared by other "famous" stu- 
dents. Perry Mason of New York says, 
"It's kind of fun having a famous name. 
I've never wanted a different one." 

These famous students add variety 
and bring a bright ray of happiness to 
the student body at MSU. In years to 
come, the memories of these students 
will linger in their fellow graduates' 
words: "Would you believe, I actually 
went to college with .. ."

regardless of her Hollywood title.

Intramurals aren't the students' 
only chance to have fun on campus. 
The Recreation Room, located directly 
across from the Union Bookstore, 
offers a host of games for student use. 

Pool tables located on the left side of 
the room are one of the most popular 
games among students. With a student 
ID, one can play at "student rates" for 
an entire evening without spending a 
phenomenal amount of money. "It's a 
break from academics," said one pool 
player, "and winning a game of pool 
can make you feel a little better about 
botching up a test earlier that day." 

Electronic games called "Space 
Invaders," "Break-Out," "Demolition 
Derby," "Blockade," and "Sea Wolf" 
test students' eye-to-hand coordina- 
tion and quickness of reflexes. Chil- 
dren, as well as some students, espe- 
cially enjoy these games. 

Foosball tables and bumper pool are 
also offered by the Recreation Room 
for student entertainment. Bowling, 
too, is very popular; the intramural 
department and individual students 
have access to the bowling lanes, 
bowling balls, and bowling pins availa- 
ble at the desk in the center of the

No one ever claimed that the job of editor of a 448 page book was easy. But then neither did anyone bother 

to warn me that the job was accompanied by a disproportionate share of difficulties and uncertainties. On 

more than one occasion during the past year I've wondered what has gone wrong: why the all-nighters, why 

no pictures, why the panic-stricken deadlines. Even more often, however, I've wondered why I still enjoyed 

I the job as much as I did, and though my sanity screams out, I'd be the first to admit that I would qladlv do it 

1 again. 

The staff has been unbelievably faithful and I give them my praise and congratulations. I'm not going to 
thank all the individuals who have put forth that little extra effort that makes such a big difference — they 
I know who they are, and I could not thank them enough. 

I think that this year's staff has made changes — some major, some minor — in the format, content, and 
appearance of the Reveille; whether those changes were for the better or for the worse will only be deter- 
mined by those who flip through its pages. We have tried to accurately and comprehensively record one year 
at State; after all, that's what a yearbook is all about. 

Now that you've thumbed through the book once or twice, I encourage you to go back through and "take a 
closer look." I think you'll enjoy it — I hope so anyway.

Take a Closer Look 

Founded as a land-grant 
institution in the 19th century, 
MSU is well-known for having 
one of the finest schools of 
agriculture in the nation. Agri- 
culture, perhaps, is the most 
important aspect of MSU's long 
heritage and the university has 
contributed immensely to the 
state, nation, and the world's 
animal and plant crops.

The Chapel of Memories, a 
small, quiet oasis amidst a cam- 
pus brimming with activity, pro- 
vides peaceful moments of 
relaxation, study, and private 
devotion throughout the day. 
Built from the charred bricks of 
Old Main Dormitory, the chapel 
has been the site of innumera-

Sports competitions are 
available for all students at MSU 
and 75 percent of the students 
took advantage of the intramu- 
ral sports program. Men and 
women alike play pillo-polo, tug 
o' war, football, and racquet- 
ball. Physical activity provides 
students with a chance to 
release energies and frustra- 
tions accumulated during long 
days of classes and studying.

University research helps 
man to prepare for his future 
and MSU contributes to a vari- 
ety of major research efforts. 
Academic research is con-

schools at MSU, with some of 
the major research being con- 
ducted on alternate energy 
resources, sunflowers, and 
small towns.
