For Phyllis and Nina 

WHEN 



Everett Hoagland and his son Kamal 



When they put you 
bloody and immaculate 

on your mother's diaphanous 

stomach 

you kneaded your shadow 



Until then let us celebrate 

the surf 

the deep blued 

whale 's songs in our ears 

and hear everything 

silhouetted by silence 



love stared 

milk 

and your mother cooed 

awe. 

There will be no poetry 
when there is no sea 

inside the seashells 
when the seashells 
are empty ears. 



like your cry for 
beamed moon-juice 
in this dark room 

tonight. As we listen 

to a woman 's, 

Whales and Nightingales. * 



*An album by Judy Collins 



DEDICATION 



Everett Hoagland was born in 1942. He is a native of Philadelphia and currently , 
SMU. His poetry and short fiction have appeared in numerous periodicals and antholog 
(Bantam), New Black Voices (Mentor), Heartblow (Illinois), '"Black World Magazine", 
"The Journal of Black Poetry", "Players Magazine". "The Massachusetts Review " He has b 
awards and fellowships, among them are a $3,000.00 fellowship from the Massachusetts Arts and II. 
for his poetic series entitled "Sonic Vision" (1975), and also the Gwendolyn Brooks Award I 

Professor Hoagland has continued to write as well as inspire a great many of his students to write poetTJ I tlil VCai undei 

the spiritual leadership and professional guidance of Professor Hoagland, a group of students created the hrst I bird '■■■ 
writing ensemble called the "North Star Nova." The group's main objective is to bring cultural awareness to the 
surrounding community (consistent with SMU's commitment to the community), via dramatic pre* 
readings, dancing, and singing. The North Star Nova is made up of seven students and one stall member I 
Joanne Diamond, Melvin Richards, Stephanie Gibson, Elizabeth Watkins, Wanda ("astro. Morns Harris, and Mai) I • 

It has been this type of dedication and the great respect and admiration which both students and fellow facult) ha 
him, that we have dedicated this year's Scrimshaw to the man, Everett Hoagland. 



S: As a Black man, professor, and 
writer, you are obviously 
involved-that is, your writing is a 
form of involvement-but how do you 
see yourself in relation to the Black 
community, both the SMU academic 
community and beyond? 

H: "I don't differentiate between 
the academic Black community and 
the urban Black community. My 
writing carries international 
significance. When I went to Jamaica I 
was surprised at how many people had 
read my works, which have appeared 
in "Black World", "Players", "Third 
World" and other books and 
magazines. "Manchupa Suite", and 
"Rite of the Sister" are two local 
pieces which deal with a theme that 
has international conotations. I try to 
jump up and down about Sambo's. 

S: Your 'jumping up and down 
about Sambo's has affected this 
community to a large extent, 
especially your poems "Batuki", and 
"Manchupa Suite". Why have they 
been so controversial? What was your 
intent? 

H The poems really put people in a 
defensive posture. They didn't do 
what I had hoped they'd do. That is 
provide a forum for discussion and 
analysis and criticisms on some long 
standing misconceptions, identity 
crises which in fact are, in many cases, 
self-perpetuated. 



S: To change the subject for a 
moment, I'd like to know your feeling 
on the fact that we've been losing 
Black scholars at SMU; some due to 
monetary reasons. What do you think 
the future at SMU will hold for the 
Black community? 

H: I lament the loss and miss the 
person of Luis Wilson who was a 
Godsend, as far as I'm concerned. He 
was a scholarly young man who was 
an Africanist and who was faciled a 
lot of the things that I've been 
learning about. His background in 
African history supplemented my 
interests and developing background 
in African literature. I understand 
why he left and it may be one of the 
reasons why I may have to leave, that 
is because I have responsibilities, not 
only a son, I have basic fundamental 
ones like dental work and an 
automobile. I'm an associate 
professor, I've been promoted and 
given tenure in three years which 
should indicate that my job has been 
more than satisfactory, but I'm still at 
the level at which I was first hired 
despit the fact that I was given the 
impression I was going to get a raise, 
and my situation is analogous to the 
situation of over 25 people. It seems 
unfair when you have put in as much 
time and invested as much money in 
education as, say, someone who is a 
lawyer or a doctor or a professor at a 
richer school. You've got to move, 
you've got a right to move. Teaching 



at SMU. believe it or not is a living, it 
is not your life, and it is your hie thai 
you are responsible to. The job 
situation for Junior professors at SMI 
does not allow one to fulfill OIK 
responsibiliti es to one's hie. 

especially if one is interested in 
travelling. That is one of the reasons 
that SMU is not able to attract 
interesting Black scholars The 

Stale Legislature has no committment 
to a State University, financially. It 'j 
lip service committment."* 

S: What is the situation of most 
post-secondary schools 1 

H: The Junior High School shifts 
the blame for a lack ol [earning to the 

elementary school, the High School to 
the Junior High, and the Colleges to 
the High Schools. One of the thil 

we are not willing to talk about is the 
home. As far as I'm concerned the 
home is probably the most important 
thing outside of college. I was raised 
in a family headed by a postman, a 
family in which the mother did not 
work and 1 think a lot o\ people are 
just lazy with their kids and are not 
doing the things that they should K 
doing.

AMBERGRIS 



/ assist 

the fluke-tailed, white Cadillac 

Overheated. Spouting steam, 

parked at the evil side 
of the road taken 

but 

it's got a smooth transmission 

Listen to... 

the mechanical melody, 

a whale's song modulated. 

The desperate sonar 

of an endangered species. 

The unseen stream 
of sperm whale oil 
transmits evil automatically. 
The whale's sonic vision 
stares loudly at my soul. 
My unblinking ear 
hears 

blues. The desperate sonar 
of an endangered species 
floats up like ambergris, 

the mechanics of modulation. 

Note: Until recently the oil derived 
from sperm whales was used, in this 
country, in automatic transmission 
fluid. 

Copyright: Everett Hoagland 1975 

S: How do you see yourself as an 
educator in trying to overcome those 
problems? Or is it too big a task for 
you to deal with? 

H: Well there is a certain amount of 
frustration when you're teaching a 
specialty and you can't elaborate on 
your speciality because you have to so 
much mechanical work with the 
students. You get critiques and you're 
involved in doing what you do with 
E-101 students. It not only slows you 
down, it also gives you the impression 
that the student's ability to deal with 
abstract skills for putting the stuff 
down on paper are not there. So the 
interest in the material may be high 
but the ability to translate and 
understanding the material or a 
difference in opinion with the 
material, on to a type written page, 
indicates this is not there. And so I 
have to deal with the primary and 



fundamental business of being able to 
write what you think. I'm finding that 
I'm getting Juniors and Seniors who 
are incapable of that. I know that the 
English department is trying to do 
everything that it possibly can to 
remedy that situation, but the 
department is unable to rectify a less 
than ideal High School, Junior High 
School, and elementary and home 
situation." 

S: Do you consider college to the 
key to success for Black folk? 

H: The so-called 'key to success', 
(education) is not necessarily that 
key. Once you get there they switch 
the lock on it. You may have a key in 
your hand, but they really don't want 
you in the system in a meaningful 
way. My whole generation, my 
parents existed so that we could live 
with education as an aid, and so that 
we live so that our children can 
flourish, because Black people are 
getting tired of just surviving. Survival 
is a habit that we have gotten together 
very well. We need to stop thinking 
about it-a fungus can survive- we need 
to start thinking about living and 
flourishing. An education at the 
College level is not necessarily a way 
to do that. In a system that doesn't 
regard you as having any meaningful 
humanity... you're being educated for 
what... to what-... It's something to 
think about." 

S: What do you think is a way out? 
Do you have any notions as to what 
the future holds? 

H: No way out. We don't always 
have to talk about flight of escape. A 
way of changing it is to provide 
alternatives and that has to be done at 
the graduate's level. Beginning in the 
mid-sixties, black people who had 
educational backgrounds and high 
interests in the welfare of their 
children, have, in large cities, 
established alternatives to 
institutionalized education as it's 
whipped on kids by public sectors in 
this country. This makes for degrees 
of success, it may not prepare you for 
success in the 'system' but the system 
dehumanizes Black people. ..In some 
cases they say we do not exist. A 
metaphor which Ralph Ellison chose, 
The Invisible Man is very, very 
appropriate, even today. ..I'm part of 
it because a University Professor is a 
servant of the system, and anyone 



that tells you he is not, is a liar. When 
we cease to be a servant of the system, 
they will fire you. You are working 
for the State, the Commonwealth and 
you adhere to the laws of 
Massachusetts and to the laws of the 
United States which are designed to 
support and strengthen" the 
system... and you walk fine lines, so 
what do you do? You live with 
yourself and you face yourself in the 
mirror as you shave, and with a 
certain amount of pride you say to 
yourself, T got to do some other 
things.' 'I've got to tell people who are 
important to me about themselves, 
about their backgrounds, about their 
present beauty, and about their 
beautiful potential.' So you organize a 
Third World writing group. So you 
teach and develop an African and 
West Indian Literature course; You 
organize and develop a Blackamerican 
Lit. course. 

You deal with the aesthetics that 
are alternatives ... aesthetics that are. 
rooted in folk mores, in folk forms of 
expression, among people that did not 
come out of the tradition, historically 
of the sonnet and the ode, etc... that 
came out of the tradition of "Bop"; 
of "Mama" ... of the tradition of t 
"Blues" .. of string bands." 

S: Thinking in terms of W.E.B. 
DuBois' phrase "The problem of the 
twentieth century is the problem of 
the color line. ", would you venture to 
discuss what you feel shall be the 
problem of the twenty-first? 

H: ' The problem of the twenty first 
century is going to be the survival of 
our species. I came to college as a 
zoology major, I have an interest in 
life and all its forms. I like to think of 
myself as a life-affirming poet, a very 
desperate situation these days, as 
Black people are on the endangered 
species list, but so is all mankind. And 
in a Laughing-to-keep-from-crying 
way I asked Stokely Carmichael 'what 
does the "dialectic" have for this 
'Hawk?" (the Hawk is the name black 
people give to the winter wind, the 
cold), because an Ice Age is coming. 
And "the man" is building a space 
shuttle so that he can get off the 
planet, because he has nothing for the 
Hawk. There is nothing that 
technocracy has to stop this Ice 
Age... Michael Harper talks about 
"cosmic payback' which has to do 
with natural pollution and the cosmic 
violation~the willful perversion of 



natural process-and the comirij 
age seems to reinforce tli 
suggestions about that...Stokely asked 
me how I knew that an Ice Age was 
coming about and I said 'You know 
our people are very adaptive and very 
intuitive. ..I knew that an Ice Age was 
coming the first time I saw Black 
people skiing!' A Black person has to 
be damaged, it seems to me, to play in 
the snow. I don't care what it's called, 
it's playing in the snow. I think we 
adapt too well. ..One of our problems 
is that we have adapted to hell itself, 
hell being history of abuse. ..to adapt 
to hell you have to become "hellish". 
As such it affects your perspective 
about other people. And it affects 
your love relationships, your values, 
your sense, and your perception of 
your history... The fact is that there is 
nothing so existential as the "Nigger" 
and there is no term as romantic as 
the term Negro, as the Negro in the 
western world. Romantic in any sense 
of that term. ..and a lot of us 
mindlessly tend to perpetuate that 
romance, live up to the adjective. Can 
you imagine, most people are proper 
nouns, we started off by being called 
an adjective, black. But we, having 
that dropped on us, as Black people 
often do, have taken that and created 
a proper noun out of it. And have 
created a proper noun out of 
blackness: a state of mind, not 
something that helps to modify an 
object... 

S: You had mentioned earlier that 
psycholinguistics is a fundamental 
concern of Black poets and the 
concept of Nommo, the creative and 
procreative power of the word. What 
does it all mean? 

H: Psycholinguistics is very 
important. Any poet. ..must deal in 
(it)... It's the psychological 
ramifications that go along with the 
way a person says something or 
describes something. Or the 
value... judgements that go with a 
certain way of phrasing things. When a 
Black person uses the term denigrate, 
a Black person is doing damage to the 
concept of blackness as a positive 
state of being, and he needs to be 
aware of that. Because you're 
speaking in forked tongue, you're 
saying that Black is beautiful, then 
you're saying that Black is negative... 

If the words carry basic, fundamental 
humani messages, they're gonna 



ethnic 

archet; 
need to trans 
the ca| 

still a and il the 

laet that 'I'm in s \ 

act of- liberation, as Michael Harj 
says, is to "destroy that c 
are certain archetypes that HI.: 
people have, their histOI*) itsell is 
archetypal. "'Roots" brings that 
out. ..the archetype is the journey 
...among other things, journcv and 
cage, are archetypes associated with 
the Black experience. But also dawn, 
"the blues woke me up this morning". 
There's always that shape ol 
hopefulness. 

S: Do you think there will conic a 
time when these archetypes will fade 
away, say, in the twenty-first century 

H: Yes, because there may not be the 
eyes here to read them. I'd like to 
read two poems that deal with this: 
Toomer said "Man's stark alternatives 
are these: transcendence or 
extinction." Jacques Cousteau. 
subsequently, has echoed Toomer\ 
worryings about man's propensity to 
want his self-destruction "Unless we 
reverse our tendencies, all oceans will 
be dead seas in thirty to fifty years." 
So what does that mean Well. ..the 
ocean produces at least ninth-tenths 
of the world's oxygen and what a 
dead sea is is a sea that supports no 
life. We're running out of fresh 
water. ..the Army Corp. of Engineers is 
giving out water in half-gallon 
containers... and that is a prophesy of 
things . to come in the national 
level. ..people are going to be fighting 
over food and water, literally in the 
streets. ..and this is the country that is 
supposed to be the metaphor for 
plentitude...so, we in our little corner, 
getting our little degrees, teaching our 
little classes can suggest to ourselves 
that all is well because we are 
cushioned by the boundaries of the 
University, that cushions us from 
reality. But more and more starkly the 
alternatives that Toomer talked about. 
transcendence or extinction, are 
becoming increasingly apparent.

The TORCH years from 1973-1977 have been years of change and developmental tension that is the result 
of our slow transition from radicalism-indeed, many of us who joined the TORCH staff in the fall of 1973 were 
semi-frustrated radicals. 

We were the youngest of the 'flower children' generation, and although most of us were in high school and junior 
high school when our older brothers and sisters were demonstrating, many of us entered college filled a revolutionary 
spirit that was fast becoming outmoded. 

Mary Murphy , Editor of the TORCH during the first semester of our freshman year, was regarded as being the last 

of the avant-garde, radical-oriented editors. "Murph"'s administration featured a rather casual format with grass roots 
appeal. The ' frequent full-page cover stories implied a certain 'editorializing' that has been absent in recent 
administrations. One of Murph's more colorful issues featured an entirely yellow TORCH, so that 'those who cleaned 
their fish with it would get dye stains.' 

News Editor Laurie Campbell succeeded Murph to the editor's post. Laurie was quieter, less radical editor than 
Mary, and her administration retamed the strong emphasis on the news that had been initiated under her predecessor's 
administration. 

Laurie's enthusiastic, flamboyant Features Editor Richard Dagwan followed her to the editorship. Dagwan's 
sentiments lay strongly in the arts and drama, and the Features Department under his influence has been regarded by 
many as being one of the most imaginative in TORCH history. 

Liz Moura, the next successor to the post, had been a features writer under Dagwan's administration. Liz maintained 
a very personal approach with her staff members, and her strong talents in poetry helped to broaden the literary 
aspects of the newspaper. 

Although the administration of Sheila T. Sheehan was brief, (she succeeded Liz Moura for eight weeks following her 
resignation) her talents in newswriting and her perception of "what makes the news" helped to broaden the paper's 
respectability. 

Sheila's strong news orientation was continued by her successor Richard Downing. Although he continued to follow 
established story lines, he also suceeded in expanding the focus of the TORCH to include educational issues.

Vets Club 



The SMU Vets Club has come light years away from its first inception in I 
The club has emerged as one of the most successful, if not one of the most lucrative 
organizations on campus. Vets Club President Brad Burns along with Vice President 
Paul Haney have brought the club to an all time high as fai as achievement is 
concerned. The Vets Club, now operating out of the Campus Center, next to the 
Student Senate office, boast 50+ members and says that its purpose for existence is 
to fight for the problems that are unique to veterans anil students alike. Under Brail 
Burns tenure they have done just that. In fact they were awarded the "Citation oi 
Merit" by ONBOARD, INC of New Bedford for service to the community. They 
were also praised by the New Bedford Standard-Times for their FOOD DRIVE in 
December of 76. Other successful events this year included: the Halloween Boogie 
Bash; Christmas Party for the Underpriviledged; the Special Student Registration 
Issue; The Mardi Gras, GONG SHOW; Vet's Club Screw Contest. Bike raffle, and the 
Aztec Two-Step/Tom Rush Concert in cooperation; with the Concert Series. 

Anyone may become a member of the Vets Club, and all members receive 
discounts on their events. "When asked for a word of profound impact, they replied 
their slogan, "First the Draft, now the Shaft!" 




The Coffeehouse 



The SMU Coffee House started under the wing of 
the Concert Series, but in 1974 they became a full 
fledged organization. The music is basically blues, 
folk and or the option of the performer. 

1977 has been one of the best years concerning 
the involvement of the students at the Coffee House. 
Thanks to regular patrons we have had a successful 
and enjoyable year. Also the dedicated staff has been 
one of our main assests in producing a smooth and 
efficient operation. 

Although this year has been a barren one in the 
coffee fields, the SMU Coffee House was able to 
indulge those coffee drinkers who were unable to 
absorb the high price of coffee and gave them all the 
free coffee they could drink. 

Come in sometime and enjoy a cup of coffee. 
We're open Tuesday evenings. 




The Crew 



Concert 
Series 



Concert Series Co-Chairman Mike Balzano, speaking without his bettei half. 
Bob Shea, reflects on the year. "It seems that this entire year the Concert Series 
has been persecuted for one loss and 1 have along with Bob Shea been held 
responsible for the loss, even though it's the same organization." Balzano 
continued, "I don't see why Bob and I have to be held responsible for that loss 
when it was incured by our predecessors." 

"Because of last years deficet (Loggins and Messina Concert ) and the fact that 
that deficet was subtracted from this year's budget, we had little money to work 
with. "However," says Balzano, "we did manage to purchase $4000 worth of 
sound equipment to cover any act instead of having to rent it."

Barry Merrill's late season heroics, Mike Murphy's constant bout with 
the pain of tendonitis, and a dissapointing 1 8th place Nationals finish all 
linger in the minds of those who followed the up and down fortunes of the 
SMU harriers over the 1976 season. 

It was the year of the underclassmen, as a group of talented young 
freshmen, a couple of enterprising sophomores, and two very cagey juniors 
led the runners to a sparkling 13-2 record. 

One of the highlights was a thrilling nail-biter over nationally ranked 
Marist College in the SMU Invitational. Mike Murphy ran the first of three 
crucial races despite a knee that kept him wincing. 

After overwhelming the weak competition at the Tri-State Invitational 
Classic in Worcester, the harriers trained their eyes (and legs) on the 
Codfish Bowl, one of New Englands most prestigious meets. 

Responding to the pressure of "second season" running, Freshman 
Merrill picked up where he left off at the Tri-State 's, with a remarkable 
14th place finish. 

Ironically, the toughest meet, competition-wise, of the year was the 
New England Championships. Entries included division 1 schools UMass, 
Providence, and Northeastern. SMU held its own, finishing 13th in a field 
of 34 schools. Merrill distinguished himself again, placing 44th. 

What happened at the Nationals in Cleveland, Ohio no one may ever 
know. With hopes high from a string of good efforts, the Corsairs stumbled 
to an 18th place finish, a far cry from 1975's 5th place finish. 

The light at the end of the tunnel was Coach Bob Dowd's contribution 
to SMU cross country. He raised his ten-year career record to 106-26. 

Ultimately, the season proved a testing ground for the new faces. 
Merril, Murphy, George Itz, Dan Doyle, Brian Ellis, Dave Maguire, Duncan 
Warden, Kevin Childs, and John Spinney will all return in 1977 with high 
hopes and valuable experience under their belts. 



Wbmen's Field Hockey 

Whether at home on the SMU field or away playing an opponent, the Women's Field Hockey Team brought 
pride to the University. Winning nine games, losing one, and tieing one, this was the best year yet for the girls. 

Coach Barb Carriero along with co-captains Barb Donnellan and Claire- Maire Butler led the team against some 
tough competition. 

The tie came against Wheaton College in what was the best game all year. Worcester State and Boston College 
also put up some decent competition but couldn't quite come up with ties SMU winning those two 2-0 and 2-1 
respectively. The only loss was the last game of the season verses the University of Rhode Island. URI took SMU 
completely by surprise winning 2-1. The only Corsair goal came with five minutes to play by Sue Rose. 

The lady Corsairs did go to the Northeast College Field Hockey Tournament. A three day event, SMU beat 
Eastern Conneticutt, tied University of Vermont (hosts of the tourney) and lost to Williams. Five players were 
chosen for the All-Star Team: Claire-Maire Butler the only senior playing defense: Mary McCarthy high scorer in 
regular season play with 16 goals; Mary Mello a sophomore forward, Sally Darlington freshman winger; and the 
goalie Lisa Drouin her second straight year on the all-star list. Lisa was the only one of the five to go on and travel 
to Pennsylvania for the pre-olympic try-outs. 

Field Hockey is a grueling sport played with 20 minute halfs and no time- outs (only for injuries). Eleven players 
are equipped with rounded curve sticks, and ankle pads. Running up and down the field, the girls must be in top 
shape for the very first game. The field is the same size as a football field, without the end-zone. The gamy has been 
compared to soccer, hockey, football, lacrosse and rugby. But field hockey has a spirit all its own. Only women and 
schoolgirls play the game. And it is safe to say that men will probably never be seen on a field hockey field.

Soccer 



On a blustery day in Mid-November, the saga of the 1976 SMU soccer 
team came to an ignoble end, at the hands (or feet) of the Brandeis Judges, 
2-0. But like Camelot, it was nice while it lasted. 

The season ended in the opening round of the NCAA Division III 
Regional Soccer Tournament. The Corsairs, with a 12-1 record, came into 
the game with a number two ranking in New England, and thus, had the 
home field advantage. It made no difference that day, however, as the 
spectacular goaltending of Brandeis' Murray Greenberg stopped the 
favored Blue and Gold in their tracks. 

All seasons must end, however, SMU's simply ended a bit sooner then 
planned. On their way to the tournament, the Corsairs ran up a string of 
accomplishments their successors will have a tough job following, much 
less besting. 

After a season-opening loss to Tufts, 1-0, the coach John Barrett led his 
men to 12 straight wins, tops in New England last year. Immersed in that 
streak was another, for six consecutive games, the goaltending duo of 
Randy Sharrow and Peter Carlin was not scored upon once (ironically, 
both of the SMU losses were by shutouts). 

A fifth straight Colonial Conference title went into the books last year, 
as well as the fact that the Corsairs not only were undefeated, but also 
unscored-upon in conference play. 

SMU's tourney bid was the first in the school's history, and the loss to 
Brandeis marked the first time since October 28, 1972 that the Corsair 
booters had been beaten in North Dartmouth, a streak of 35 games. 

Individually, Bruce Botelho shattered Ameico Aruajo's career scoring 
record. The senior co-captain finished his brilliant tenure at SMU with a 
four-year total of 95 goals. This season also marked the farewell of 
defensive genius Joe Hummel, as well as Bob Lundgren and John Sousa, 
but everyone else from the 12-2 combine will be back. 

Looking ahead, the sights are optimistic for another powerhouse in 
1977. Looking back? As a old non-Oscar-winning comedian once said, 
"Thanks for the memories."

Theatre Co. : SMUTCO 

The SMU Theater Company is now in its seventh season. It has evolved from a 
one-play-per-season "Theater Club" into a three-play-per-semester "Theater Company." 
In all, SMUTCO casts nine plays a year, including three during the summer. It is 
comprised of a group of dedicated, hard working students (some ex-students) who, 
under the directorship and guidance of Angus Bailey and Tom Higgins, devote countless 
hours to creating superior quality theater. "People don't realize the work involved," 
says Gary Hartwell, a 4 year Veteranpf SMUTCO, Angus Bailey has been with the 
organization since its inception and "virtually built it single-handedly" adds Hartwell. 

The feeling one gets while talking to theater company members is one of pride. Peter 
Boorman, an active member of the company says, "SMUTCO is the second most 
productive organization on campus, the Torch being the first. ..It's a bug, once you get 
involved you can't get away from it." As far as the turn out, Boorman says, "You can't 
get students at this university to watch the show. ..Most people that do go, our 
'regulars', are people from the outside community." 

SMU does not have a full scale drama department. There are no specific 
requirements -i.e., no Theater Major requirements for one to become a member of the 
group, merely a willingness, to work. "It has a lot of potential," says Stephanie Gibson, 
another theatre company member. "It's a good company, but I would like to see more 
Black students involved..." 

The theater company works on a small budget. The facilities, however, are quite 
adequate. But were it not for the time and energy that both students and staff devote 
to productions they would not be realized

Women's Center 



"Sharon, does SMU really need the Women's Center?" "Yes, 
Mike, the organization is definitely needed," replied Co-Director 
Sharon Boswell Brockett. "The health services don't meet the needs 
of the female students; the counseling center and the health center 
don't do what we do." Sharon continued, "They don't have an 
updated list of all the doctors. If a person wants information on 
problem pregnancy or venereal disease we are the only organization 
on campus." Reflectively Sharon continued, "This school tends to 
be conservative in nature. The biggest problem the Women's Center 
has had tends to be the lack of awareness of sexism on this campus. 
Consequently we aren't as much of a group organization as we were 
meant to be. 

"Women are hesitant to ally themselves with a feminist oriented 
organization. The are afraid of being labeled feminist or anti-male, 
but we try to let students know that we aren't anti-male," said 
Brockett, with a tinge of accent. 

"I believe that women's liberation is only part of human 
liberation from narrowly defined sex roles," said the Co-Director. 

"The purpose of our organization is to counsel and disseminate 
information on birth control, pregnancy, gynecological problems, 
VD, etc. We also offer a resource library dealing with issues 
particularly related to women," added Sharon. "We organize 
activities that meet certain needs and desires of the students, such as 
a single parent discussion group, an auto-mechanics course, 
educational programs on child birth, birth control, etc." 

"Looking back at 1976-77, you had a big year didn't you, 

Sharon?" "Yes Mike," she replied. "We had Warren Farrell speak in 

conjunction with the Lecture Series. We presented the Dimensions 

of Sexuality in the dorms; the Equal Rights Amendment Luncheon; 

the Women's Conference on Labor Relations; we co-sponsored a 

women's variety show; formed informational groups for Aid to 

•ndent Children to find out for what women were eligible; were 

en ted on the Status of Women Committee and have been 

[asses and for the Vets Club."

Foreign Language Club 

What is the Foreign Language Club? Just about one of the largest 
organization's on campus, boasting 120 members, under the direction ol John 
Gonzalves, President and Maria Tavares, Vice-President. 

What is the purpose of the Foreign Language Club? "To further the contact 
among the students of foreign languages, and to promote cultural activities for 
the benefit of both the members and the community." replied the ebullient 
Vice-President. "Some of the events that we have had." explained Maria, "were 
the Bucks for Books Mixer in which we raised S775 for the Library • an 
international Christmas; and a field trip to see the "Whole World Celebration" in 
Boston. We even have a radio program in Portugese on WJ FD. 

"Everyone is welcome to join, please come join, you don't have to be a 
foreign language major." 




TEMPER 



"What is TEMPER?" I asked Steve Lynch, Co-Director of 
the Student Literary Journal. "TEMPER gives us an excuse for 
existence," David Guenette Co-Director chimed in. "What we 
have tried to do with TEMPER is to use it as a vechicle through 
which the student body can express themselves creatively. 
That's all we have to say." 





Med 



Tech 



Club 



The Med Tech Club consists of students 
who are enrolled in the Medical Technology 
program here at SMU. The club functions for 
the past year began with a party at the 
Lynman House so. that everyone could get 
acquainted. 

The club also held various seminars on 
topics such as "Urinalysis" and "Vena 
Puncture." The club attended two 
conventions, one in Port Chester, NY and the 
other in Hyannis, Ma. At these Med Tech 
conventions there are lectures and exhibits 
dealing with the problems and advancements 
that Medical Technicians deal with in their 
professions. The club raised money for these 



trips by having a cake sale and also by selling 
T-shirts with "Med Techs do it with Quality 
Control" on them. The T-shirts were a great 
success and part of the profit will enable them 
to send one representative to the National 
ASMT convention in Atlanta, Georgia. 

The Club attempts to familiarize students 
with the professional aspects of being a 
Medical Technician and tries to get them 
involved in activities that will benefit their 
career in future years. 

This year's officers were: Elaine Scott - 
President; Lisa Antonelli- Vice President; Ann 
Faria - Secretary; Paul Fontaine - Treasurer.

The Chinese Student Association 



The Chinese Student Association (C.S.A.) has been in existence since the Fall of 1972. Originally 
formed with a membership of ten, the association was formally chartered by the Student Senate in 
1975 as a student organization on campus. With the help of Dr. C.N. Wu, the Association has grown 
to an organization of sixty members consisting of faculty members, students, and friends of Chinese 
origin, students from other Asian countries as well as American students interested in the Chinese 
culture. 

The chief function of the Association is to promote cultural exchange at SMU. It seeks to 
provide such a service through a program that includes the teaching of Chinese martial arts, the 
showing of Chinese movies and the presentation of lectures by Chinese scholars. A free course of 
conversational Chinese will be offered this summer. 

The association has sponsored a wide variety of social activities including dinner parties, summer 
camps and a Chinese New Year dance. It also contributed to the orientation and accomodation of 
incoming Chinese students. 

The most important activity sponsored by the association is the Kung-Fu (Chinese Martial Art) 
club founded by Masters Jason Tsou and Jimmy Guo. It provides a balanced physical training 
program for the individual and its achievements is further reflected by a series of successful 
demonstrations of Kung-Fu at a number of University communities in New England including MIT, 
URI, U.Mass., Brown, etc. 

The association wishes to acknowledge the generous support from the Student Senate. It looks 
forward to meeting new challenges in the next academic year and plans to provide better services to 
its membership and the SMU community.

The Sailing Club 



The Sailing Club has enjoyed a good fiscal year. 
Past years sailing has evolved around other people's 
boats. This year the Sailing Club purchased three 
small sailing craft for club use. This money was raised 
by the hard work of Sailing Club members and the 
generosity of many people in this area. Commodore 
Paul McGarr wishes to extend a public "thank you" 
to all those who made this club work. 

Other Sailing Club officers for the 1976-77 year 
include: Vice Commodore - Clark Smedstead and 
Treasurer - Bob Clysdale.

The Inner Space Society of SMU has been plagued 
with many major problems this year. Real interest in 
the club has waned since Bob Salerno, president 
during 1974-75 left SMU. Under Dennis Stokoweski's 
administration, 1975-76, interest began to dwindle 
slightly but energy levels remained fairly high, and 
there was good participation in club dives. 

But 1976-77 will be remembered as a "downer" 
year. Dave Hoff, president of the organization, saw 
numerous changes occurring in the club; the major 
problem being too many seniors and not enough 
underclassmen. Also the death of Bob Potts, Dive 
Officer and Number One Scuba Diving Enthusuast of 
the Year. Bob's death was a tremendous blow to the 
solidarity and unity of the organization, and although 
Bob was not the president, he worked in an almost 
symbiotic relationship with Dave Hoff. Potts was a 
central figure in the organization and after his death, 
club members just scattered, people turned to other 
pursuits over diving. 

High points this year were the Run-a-Thon, 
organized by Bob Potts and others to raise money to 
buy a "Resci- Annie," a doll used for First Aid and 
Cardio-Pulmanary Resusitation training. Also 
underwater hockey, a big favorite, and underwater 
monopoly were items for memory lane.

"BUCKS FOR BOOKS"? 



A campaign to raise money for the SMU library came into full force 
during the 1976-77 academic year. "Bucks for Books" signs, pamphlets and 
bumper stickers were seen everywhere. Why- Because SMU's library was 
99,000 volumes short of set standards for a state university. Due to this 
deficiency, SMU could lose its accredidation. 

Students, administrators, faculty and alumni joined forces to see what 
could be done. Fund raising events were held and donations sought, but the 
largest part must come from the state. 

SMU confronted Governor Michael Dukakis with the library's outstanding 
deficiency and as a result some aid has been given. Not enough aid however, 
and so SMU will keep efforts going until the problem is alleviated.

SMU TELEVISION 



SMU Television has grown at a fairly rapid clip in the past 
three years. Since Dick Owen's reign as producer/director of the 
Campus News, interest has grown. 

In September of 1976, SMU TV expanded through the 
efforts of Bob Archer, Liz Bryne, Walter Frost, Roger Lavoie, 
Jim Feeley, Bill Aguar, Paul Souza and others. The 
programming being done went to a cable TV hook-up in New 
Bedford , and New Bedford High School. 

The programming progressed from the Campus News shows 
produced and directed by seniors Mike Laney and Bob Johnson, 
to encompass the SMU game show, "The Third Degree," Dave 
Baker's baby and a comedy show, "Mezzanine Madness" was 
born. 

The potential learning opportunities that are available for 
students through the SMU TV department are immeasurable. 
The past three producers and directors of the news department 
there are all pursuing careers in the field of TV due to the 
patience and help they received through people like Bob Archer 
and Liz Bryne. 

Granted SMU TV may have a long way to go, but it's come a 
long way!

STUDENT JUDICIARY 



The Student Judiciary, particularly the University Court, had a record docket for the 1976-77 season. 
Anthony Ferreria Jr. presided over the court in one of its most protracted cases: "O'Neill vs Student 
Senate." 

It was with this case that the Court began to expand. Contempt of Court charges with Disciplinary 
Probation sanctions were levied against certain individuals in their dealing with the Court. The Court 
moved cautiously and carefully thanks to the eyes and ears, and minds of Justices Fradique Rocha, 
Paul Fistori, Roger Tache, Denise Haywood, Dave Berger, Mike Laney, John Twomey, Chrissa O'Brien, 
Bob Bento, Richard Larschan, ; and Chief Justices; (at various times) Tony Ferreria, Truzzel DeRamus, and 
Bill Herbert. 

Perhaps the court's finest and most difficult case was "O'Neill vs Student Senate Election Committee." 
It was in this controversial case, presided by Chief Justice Bill Herbert, that the Court really stood out. The 
Court upheld O'Neill's appeal that stated, "The Senate Election Committee by declaring that 21 ballots 
cast for neither candidate, were votes of "no preference" It was here that the Court took a bold 
interpretation of the decision and upheld O'Neill's appeal 7-2; thus giving him a "vote of confidence" in his 
bid for Student Trustee, for 1977-78. 

The Court ruled that a "ballot" is not a "vote" and cannot be counted as a "vote of no preference." 
Chief Justice Bill Herbert and Justice Rick Rousseau cast the dissenting votes in this historic case. 

In totality, it is safe to say that 1976-77 will be the year that the Student Judiciary made quite a splash.

STUDENT PROGRAMMING 

In our attempt to cover as many student activities as possible, SCRIMSHAW chose to 
interview Michael Gubler, one time Acting Programming Coordinator, later Assistant 
Programming Coordinator for the Student Activities Programming Office. 



S: Mike, what were some of the highlights of 1976-77 
concerning the programming done through your office? 

MG: We had the usual three main programs: the 
October Beerfest, Champagne Ball and the Spring Ball. 

S: Was there "any thing different about these events in 
relation to past years? 

MG: There was much more interest: ticket sales were 
great; we were selling out in close to one half hour for 
these events. The actual events themselves were more of 
an "up" situation. They've grown past the mixer stage, 
they are now real annual events that people look 
forward to. At the Beerfest in particular, people really 
let go; they really got crazy, but had a good time. 

S: What factor would you attribute to the large turnout 
for these events? 

MG: The opening of the new dorms. We have more 
people. The balls are very traditional, almost like a prom 
affair. They are classier, an event of significance, 
something that people look forward to. 



S: Spring Weekend was a big event for your office, 
wasn 't it? 

MG: Yes, Spring Weekend '77 or something similar to it 
hadn't been tried since the "Gentle Thursday" years. 
Since Spring Weekend was so successful it will probably 
come back again. We might get back to a "Woods of 
Dartmouth" event. 

S: The Dance Companies were a different type of 
activity, weren't they? 

MG: Right, the dance companies were different. With 
aid from the National Endowment for the Arts, we 
brought the Raymond Johnson Dance Co. That show 
had mixed success and didn't draw as well as the Acme 
Dance Co. That act really drew people, and everyone 
who saw it really liked it. In fact it got a standing 
ovation. The whole show was really bizzare. 1 think it 
might have changed a few people's opinions about 
modern dance. 

All in all, the year was definitely a big improvement 
over last year. We got a bigger budget. Hopefully the 
Board of Governors will see that we provide a service to 
students and to the community and that it's not all fun 
and games. We should have more mini-courses like the 
mixology course, but we just don't have the money.

Wliat is the BOG? 

The BOG consists of representatives from all the groups that make up the university community: commuter students, 
resident students, administrators, continuing studies, graduate student association alumni, and student senate. The 
purpose of the BOG as outlined in our enabling act is to; 

1) Increase the efficiency of the Campus Center. 

2) Increase the varience of opinions in the governing of the Campus Center. 



3) Establish specific goals and recommendations for the Campus Center. 

In reality, the BOG does even more: approving the budgets, recommending the fee approving all dates for the use of 
the building, recommending and approving all programming for the building, recommending and approving all 
programming for the building, and looking constantly to the future for the expansion and improvement of the Campus 
Center. 

History of the BOG 

The Board of Governors was formed in March 1973 as the body responsible for governing the Campus Center. At the 
time of its creation, the Campus Center consisted of basically a cafeteria and a pool hall in addition to the Campus Shop, 
and student offices. 

Now, we offer two services of a Rathskellar (the only student-run operation that makes money in Massachusetts), a 
stereo listening center, a complete games' room, the Sunset Room PM (a room offering an alternative atmosphere to that 
of the Rathskellar), plus a continuing series of special events, Spring and Christmas Balls, a Beerfest, and other valuable 
and enjoyable activities. 

Until 1976, the Campus Center had to pay its own mortgage on the building, which gave us a fee of $60.00 per 
When faced with the prospect of a $120 00 fee, the BOG and other interested groups undertook the successful 
campaign to have the state take over the payment of this mortgage. This has resulted the Campus Center fee being 
lowered. 

In addition, the BOG is intimately involved in the creation of the Campus Center Budget and all aspects of the 



programming and operation

BOARD OF GOVERNORS 



The B.O.G. that managed the SMU Campus 
Center in 1976-77 had the distinct advantage of 
working with a budget of approximately one half 
million dollars. The B.O.G. since its inception had 
been basically an advisory body with little or no 
money. 

With state takeover of the Campus Center in the 
spring of 1976 the B.O.G. in cooperation with 
Richard Waring, Director of the Campus Center 
constructed a budget that was directed at student 
needs and interests. The Programming budget alone 
was tripled over previous years and programs were 
in abundance throughout the entire year. 

The year itself commenced in a rather confusing 
fashion. The Search and Screen committee for 
Night Supervisor and Assistant Direcotr of the 
Campus Center was contested. President Walker felt 
that the best way to rectify the problem was to 
establish a new Search and Screen Committee. The 
new committee was formulated and the result was 
the B.O.G. and the <£ampus Center Staff struggled 
through the year. Finally in April of 1977 Mark 
Nahorney, Programming Coordinator, and Robert 
Sacco, Night Supervisor were officially ratified by 
the Board of Trustees. 



To entertain any type ol business in the presen 

of 16 B.O.G. members at tunes was quite a volatile 

situation. Personalities often exploded into fill 

debate. To avoid lengthy meetings and rhetoric 

three committees were established to deal with the 
business of the Board when it wasn't in session 
The Programming Council proved itselt to be an 

effective subcommittee ol the B.O.G. II yon 
attended any part of Spring Weekend I'm sure you 
will agree. 

The Alcoholic Beverage Committee had the task 
of implementing a plan to recover S 1 500 due to the 
fact that someone in a fit of drunken raye 
destroyed the mens room in the Rathskellar 

The Finance Committee of the B.O.G. 
without question the most powerful committee of 
the Board and was largely responsible lor the 
closing fo of the Sunset Room-a decision unpopular 
to many. However the room at its closing had lost 
several thousand dollars. 

Although the year at times was very turbujent 1 
am very proud to have served as your 
representative. Hopefully many of you will return 
to SMU in the years ahead and seem many of the 
improvements that were planned of. talked of. and 
thought of in our Senior Year at SMUU . 

Best of Luck to You All

BLACK STUDENT UNION 



In November of 1969, while many students around the country 
were demonstrating and revolting against the oppressive forces of the 
United States government-particularly its domestic and foreign 
policies- a group of concerned students at SMU decided to organize 
themselves in an effort to combat, among other things, racism. It was 
an historical period in the evolution of the United States when the 
Black Consciousness movement reached a somewhat unprecedented 
peak (i.e., aside from Nat Turner's revolt, or the Black Awakening of 
the 20's, etc.) The organization was called the Black Student Union. 
For the past eight years the Black Student Union at SMU has 
dedicated itself to raising Black Consciousness and education both 
the student body and the general public, as to the positive aspects of 
the Black experience and Black American history. By working closely 
with the SMU Lecture Series, Concert Series, and a host of other 
organizations, the BSU provides the sensitivity and insight needed to 
develop a meaningful cultural and academic atmosphere on campus. 
Each year the second week in February is set aside as Black Emphasis 
Week and both members of the SMU and local community take part 
in cultural and social awareness seminars. And traditionally the Black 
Church is commemorated for its active stand in the Black man's 
struggle for freedom. 

fundamental philosophy of the Black Student Union is that 
on is a necessary means for upward mobility, and its purpose 
ontinue the trend as was seen through the eyes of W.E.B.

EQUAL FUNDING? 



In the Fall of 1976, equal funding for SMU aroused many members of the university 
community to take action. Marcel Ledoux, head of the Maintainence Division of the SMU 
Chapter of the Massachusetts State Employees Association led union members of SMU's 
Faculty Federation, MSEA and Educational Services Division in a protest march to promote 
funding of their salary contracts. The march was followed by a rally held in the SMU 
auditorium. Topics of debate there included equal funding per student for SMU, funding 
for university contracts and money for accredidation. 

[he campaigns of students, faculty, staff and administrators showed the legislators that 
here at SMU there are special needs which should be met.

PEOPLE AND PERSONALITIES 




DEAN HOWARD 

Former Dean of Men, now Associate Dean of Students, Donald C. Howard is a well known administrator 
on campus. During the past 11 years Dean Howard has been administrative consultant to numerous student 
organizations including the TORCH, SCRIMSHAW , and Student Senate. His involvement with students has 
endeared him to many over the years. A special feeling exists between Dean Howard and the members of 
the Class of 1977. Because of this closeness, the dean was selected by the students as the administrator to 
be interviewed for the '77 SCRIM SHA W. 



S: You have the reputation of being one of the most colorful, 
influential, and best known administrators on this campus, 
certainly more visible, and often controversial, both in a 
positive and negative respect, especially in relation to student 
politics. You are also seen as a complex man with strong 
values, convictions and feelings about life. Why do you think 
you acquire this reputation and would you be willing to 
discuss some of the values and convictions that you see as 
important in your life? 

H: Well, I suppose the flip and simple answer to your 
question would be to say that I acquire that reputation 
because I am what I am and like every individual, what I am 
is subject to the perceptions of others. And perceptions are 
really what the first part of your question is about. However, 
perceptions are difficult to deal with because they are 
affected by various factors, not the least being the degree to 
which a person is truly known by those doing the perceiving. 
Let us deal for starters with my supposed controversiality. 
Anyone in a leadership role who takes their decision making 
responsibilities seriously is bound to be controversial. 
Decision makers will never please everyone. Now add to this 
basic working principle the following: a personality highly 
defined and up front; a blunt manner of speaking that can be 
unsparing; an Irish temper that at times has a low flash- 
point; a robust ego, however not so excessive as to keep the 
person from saying "I'm sorry," or "I was wrong " a slightly 
authoritarian approach that is not afraid to dra ines and 
call a halt to situations where permissh jness is 
counter-productive; an enjoyment in bullying bullies, yet at 
the same time having a non-adverseness to • Waning on others 
if that technique is necessary to obtain a desired response. 
Mix all of this together with a tenacious will, a confidence in 



personal judgments and insights, strong convictions, delight 
in making decisions and bringing to bear on those decisions 
powerful skills at persuasion for their acceptance, and what 
do you have? In this instance, Don Howard, and the stuff of 
which perceptions are made both good and bad. 

Am I complex? Of course. Isn't everyone? I don't think 
I'm any more so than anyone else. Certainly there is nothing 
very mysterious or hidden about my person. What you see is 
what you get, give or take ten percent. The allusion to my 
presumed influence in student politics is like the line about 
old soldiers, it never dies, but I hope it will fade away. I 
know there are those who are naive enough to think that I 
cultivate certain students as pets and as political pawns in 
order to build a student power network that I can manipulate 
for my own purposes. Nothing could be further from the 
truth. The "Dean Machine" charge was a myth from the day 
it was first hatched in the fevered minds of the excited 
supporters of a Student Trustee candidate several years back. 
An amusing turn of phrase, but a cheap shot. It has been 
promoted since by a small group of students who fancy 
themselves as radicals and defenders against the imagined 
Machiavellian designs and intrigue of the administration. How 
ridiculous. Obviously, the vast majority of students see it for 
what it is - an insult to their intelligence. 

It should be remembered that the Student Life Office has 
more consistent daily contact with students on a wider range 
of matters than any other office in the LTniversity. This gives 
those in it an excellent opportunity to observe the overall 
student scene, and to assess the qualities of emerging leaders. 
I won't deny that I have encouraged numerous students over 
the years who showed talent for leadership to get involved in 



various activities that would develop their potential. Many ol 
these students were individuals I was drawn to In the natural 
chemistry of human interaction, and in most cases [his lead 
to strong personal commitments. But this wasn't because I 
was interested in making them power pawns. They were all 
too intelligent and independent to ever lend themselves to 
that kind of a relationship. What is more. I shall continue to 
exercise my perogatives in this way. That kind of personal 
advice and guidance is at the heart of my role as dean and is 
why I feel tins office is an important part of the total 
educational process at SMU, or any other university. 

As for my values and convictions they have been greatly 
influenced by those religious concepts and tenets in which I 
was raised as a youth. Though I share with many of my 
student friends something of their disillusionment with the 
organized church today, as a professing Biblical Christian. I 
still believe in a personal God, Creator of a divinely ordered 
universe, a God in whose image and likeness we are made. 
But I also hold with the belief that as human beings we are in 
nature flawed creatures whose redemption from a propensity 
for evil can come only through a process of spiritual 
regeneration; accomplished by a conscious act of faith in 
God's Son, Jesus Christ as Saviour. What the man in the 
White House, Jimmy Carter, refers to as being "born again." 
While I have not, unhappily, always given manifestation of 
these beliefs in my daily actions, they have had, nevertheless, 
a profound effect upon the shaping of my attitudes and 
feelings about life. Because of them I accept the fundamental 
Judaic-Christian position that the human person, despite the 
flaws, is sacred, endowed by God with an infinite dignity and 
value that nothing can ever compromise. 

Anyone who knows me knows that people are central to 
my life structure. Because they are, human relationships 
therefore are primary in my system of priorities. When I 
speak of relationships, I'm not talking, of course, about those 
kinds of diluted, superficial interactions between individuals 
that sometimes pass these days as a genuine relationship 
when in fact they are merely acquaintanceships. Like ships 
that cross at sea they are aware of the presence of the other, 
but only at a distance. No, I am speaking of that kind of 
outreach between people that leads to a human 
connectedness, that creates a friendship, a relationship that 
has nearness not distance to it; that is lived out on such a 
deep trust level that the intimacy of sharing one's inner 
person, and exploring the private reaches of each other's soul 
can be realized without fear of risk. As I define it, a true 
relationship must have the capacity to grow roots, to have 
staying power between persons who have substance. But 
above all, it must be a bond that gives sustenance to the 
heart's needs for that love and companionship that are the 
only defense that we as human beings have against the 
loneliness that haunts us all. 

Idealistic though it may be to think that we could have 
relationships of this kind, I would maintain that without 
them our lives have little chance for developing real meaning 
or joy. If there is any advice that I would want to leave with 
the graduates of the Class of '77 it would be this - that you 
learn over the years ahead to cultivate warm, deep, 
supportive human relationships of the type we have been 
describing. Note that I said learn. All of us have some instinct 
left over from the innocent days of childhood, if it hasn't 
been crushed altogether, for reaching out to others. But for 
most of us it is a response that requires learning anew; 
learning first to discover and accept ourselves; to be open and 
genuine; to get in touch with and express our feelings; to be 
who we are without facade; learning to accept and care for 
others, and to develop an ability to step into their personal 
world and attempt to see it as if it were our own; to so 
demonstrate our trustworthiness that mutual vulnerability 
will result, the one condition that must be present for true

my hero, Winston Churchill, it is the one virtue that makes all 
other virtues possible. Then there is love the transcendent 
value of them all. without which neither humans or their 
relationships can function, without which it is doubtful that 
fairness, honesty and courage can survive within the human 
soul. I truly believe that loving is the one force that motivates 
us to give of ourselves to fellow human beings. It is the 
supreme and most fulfilling of human activities. These are 
some of the important values, convictions and feelings. 1 hold

S: Is the influx of dorm students many of 
whom come from more affluent backgrounds changing the 
basic' make-up of the SAW student body which has b( 
largely working class? If so, how will this affect the average 
SMU student? 

H: Yes, the overall complexion of the student bodj is 
changing, but not drastically since the dorm students are just 
25 percent of the total student enrollment. I don't anticipate 
that ratio changing for many years. Therefore, the majority 
of our students are commuters from the region. The dorm 
students come mostly from other geographic regions and 
many of them do come from upper income homes. 1 - 
nothing wrong with this. It simply means that we are at last 
getting the kind of mix we should have here. Alter all. isn't' 
exposure to different cultures, different economic and social 
backgrounds, a significant part of the college learning 
experience? I think this benefits everyone. 

S: No doubt you have witnessed a change in the attitudes and 
the overall composition of the student body since the latt 
1960's. Can you describe this change? 

ft: Yes, there is a change. We see today a more inward, 
personally directed kind of student. It isn't that they are less 
concerned about social conditions and issues than the 
students of the 60's, they just demonstrate their caring in 
quieter, and more practical ways. They are not as much into 
posturing a radical stance as were their predecessors. But the 
tighter state of the economy has forced them to be more 

Continued on page 52. 



Continued from page 51 



conscious of their economic futures, and therefore, to 
conform to the more traditional values of the society. The 
students of the affluent sixties could afford to be more 
carefree. The students of today don't seem to be as attracted 
either to the mystical and communal life styles of the past. 
There is a conservative streak in them. However, when 
making these generational comparisons, we must realize that 
we are dealing with two very different time periods. The 70's 
has seen a slow return to more conventional living, trying to 
absorb and consolidate what changes the upheavals of the 
60's gave us. On the other hand, the 60's was a traumatic 
decade of extreme contrasts, love and hate, violence in the 
cause of peace. It was one of those societal watershed periods 
that comes along every so many centuries. It will be 
remembered as a time when young people tried to be a 
potent force and were, in ways more extensive than they 
possibly realize. There was a lot about it that was exhilirating 
and vibrant. There was also a lot about it that was loony, 
immature and anti-intellectual in its behaviour. But there is 
no denying that it was an age that has provided today's 
young people with an atmosphere in which they can be more 
creative and open and freer to be themselves without the 
exaggerated attitudes and forms of that era. 

S: This question comes in two parts. One, what is your 
opinion of the extent of drug use on campus, and two, how 
do you feel about legalization of marijuana? 

H: I think there has been a decrease in hard drug use on 
campus, and maybe even a very slight lessening of marijuana 
use. Of course, it should be understood that marijuana is 
almost an intrinsic part of the culture today, not only the 
youth culture, but of society generally. That's why I think 
we will see the legalization of marijuana in the lifetime of 
most of us. The first step has already been taken - the 
decriminalization of marijuana. On decriminalization, I have 
no problem. But as for legalization, I'm not so sure. The jury 
isn't in yet on the long range effects of marijuana. Until it is, 
I wouldn't want to see the bars let down altogether. Society 
suffers grieviously enough from the uninhibited indulgence of 
the drug, alcohol. Why add another? 

S: You have worked more closely with student leaders over 
the years than probably anyone at SMU. Could you give a 
candid appraisal of some of these leaders and in doing so 
reveal what you think are the qualities of leadership? For the 
sake of conciseness take the most recent Student Trustees 
and Student Government Presidents - Chevrier, { Sutcliffe, 
McGinn, Hoffman and Trundy. 

H: Paul Chevrier -In my mind he was probably the most 
gifted all-around student leader we've had to date. He wasn't 
just into Student Government, he also made significant 
contributions to the establishment of the radio station and 
the development of the Residence Life program. He is a man 
with a clear, sharp intelligence. Fiercely independent. Very 
much his own man. There was a maturity and natural 
authoritarianism about him that helped him in getting things 
done. Paul wore well over the lo stretch. A proven 
performer. 

Andy Sutcliffe - Andy was wdest, most 

sophisticated political* animal ever to r SMU student 

politics in the 1 1 years I've been here. He had a real feel and 
instinct for political strategy and a touch of the Machiavellian 



about him. It was obvious that he loved the game, and he was 
fun to watch in those years. He was the only one to hold the 
three major posts of Student Government - Treasurer, 
President and Student Trustee - a fact that testifies to his 
leader skills. But it was his smooth, polished ability to 
articulate what was going on in that agile brain of his that set 
him apart. His handling of himself on the day of the famous 
Campus Center rally was a prime example. He did his fellow 
students proud on that occasion. Overall, he was outstanding. 

Paul McGinn - Paul, in my estimation, is the shining 
example of how valuable for personal development 
participation in student activities can be. He grew perceptibly 
as a person and in his role as a student leader as a direct result 
of his involvements. He was the most widely known and 
genuinely respected student leader of recent years. He had no 
enemies and few critics, and that wasn't because he didn't 
take stands because he did. It was his firm, but even, and 
mellow personality that made his positions acceptable if not 
always agreed with. Self possession, balance, excellent insights 
and judgments about people and situations were the strengths 
that characterized him as a splendid leader. If he should 
choose politics as a career, I think he has the making of a 
political star. Maybe a future Governor of this state. 

Tim Hoffman - A person of great integrity. It would never 
cross the mind of anyone who knew Tim Hoffman well or 
worked closely with him to ever doubt his honesty or 
motivations. In fact, I would have to say that in terms of his 
fairness and personal decency, he has one of the finest 
characters of any individual I have ever worked with. A truly 
good human being. Totally trustworthy. He was also the least 
self-aggrandizing student leader I've dealt with around here. 
Not an ego trip in him. Regrettably, he lacked confidence in 
himself and his abilities. His passive, non-assertive nature 
worked against him. To be an affective leader one has to have 
a healthy sense of dominance and certainty about what you 
believe in. Tim didn't have this which made his leadership 
experiences frustrating and anguishing at times. However, 
when he does arrive at that point where he realizes how 
competent and talented he really is and becomes more 
committed to people and ideas, he'll be an excellent leader. 
He has the charisma as well to go with it. 

Chris Trundy - It was no secret around campus that Chris 
and I had our differences and a rather turbulent interpersonal 
relationship. However, I think I can be fair and reasonably 
objective in my assessment of him. He is very bright, with a 
quick wit and no small measure of charm when he wants to 
be charming. But I feel that he badly misjudged the mood 
and attitudes of the student body. The confrontational 
negative style is just not the mode that SMU students want 
from their student leaders. It is divisive and unproductive. 
Chris had vision and saw a need for change and that is to his 
credit. Unfortunately, the abrasive approach alienated others 
from seeing that vision as well. It would be my hope that as 
he continues to mature he will derive greater emotional 
security from knowing his own considerable abilities because 
he has much to offer. 

The summation of what I see as the ingredients of 
leadership might be put this way - the drive and maturity of a 
Paul Chevrier, the articulation and political skills of an Andy 
Sutcliffe, the self possession and insight powers of a Paul 
McGinn, the integrity and goodness of a Tim Hoffman and 
the vision of a Chris Trundy, overlaid with the bright 
intelligence that they all possess. 



HERB CUMMIN GS 




Professor Herb Cummings, a painting instructor for the College of line and Applied Arts, 
was chosen by the senior class as one of their favorite faculty members. SCRIMSHAW 
interviewed Mr. Cummings to learn more about this popular prof 

Cummings attended Washington University's School of Fine Arts as an undergraduate and 
received his Masters in Fine Arts from Indiana University in Bloomington. Indiana. 

In addition to teaching at SMU, Professor Cummings has also taught at Webster College. 
Washington University, Rhode Island School of Design and was a Chief Critic in European 
Honors Program, spending 14 months in Italy. 



S: Professor Cummings, how do you feel 
about teaching? 

C: It's important that you love teaching. It 
gives one an opportunity to change someone's 
life, and hope they are are a better person. It's 
worth it even if 5 out of 30 see what you are 
doing. 

S: How do you feel about the Fine Arts 
Department at SMU? 

C: SMU's Art Department is very good. All 
our kids are getting into graduate school. Kids 
here are just as good as RISD. Students 
coming here now choose SMU first, rather 
than U. Mass or Mass Art. Therefore the 
quality of students is better. 

In the Fine Arts Department at SMU, kids 
get an excellent liberal education. It is 
especially good because in the department we 
don't point out that the education one gets is 
for economic gain. Art is a way of life. 
Whatever job they get they can still paint. It is 
something one can pursue 
forever-Knowledge that can be carried with 
you always and directly applied. 




S.What are your own personal thoughts and 
philosophies on art? 



C: Merton says: "Every tree gives honor and 
glory to God by just the way it is"'" You have 
to find your own sainthood. You can't do it 
by imitating. You have to form to the forces 
that are working on you. -just like the tree 
forms to the forces that are working on it. 
But there is a danger in teaching this and not 
justifying bigotry. People (kids) should have 

J obligations to find themselves in the natural 
and good. Art is good, filings that are not 
artistic are lacking in truth, good, and beauty 
The painter and sculptor are trying to find the 
eyelash of God: perfect -beauty, although he 
knows it is impossible: trying to find glimpses 
of perfection. In a painting I can lose myself, 
so it is a feeling as you were before you were 
born or after you died (or cosmic 

I consciousness) 

S: How do you feel about the future of SMI ' 

C: The only chance for a middle class family 
to get an education is in public education. 
Most of art comes out of the middle class. I 
think that SMU has great potential. I came 
here with the idea that SMU could be the best 
school on the East Coast. If it can survive the 
financial squeeze, it will be okay. 







HOWARD BROWN 



Of faculty members at SMU it can be said that there are far_ 
too many professors and very few teachers. Howard H. 
Brown, associate professor of Management and chairman of 
the Management Department, is one of the latter. To many 
members of this year's graduating class he is one of the best. 
With a refreshing and unique style of teaching, and a flair for 
developing a sense of responsibility among his students, Dr. 
Brown (Howard to many of his friends) is known as a real 
educator in the true sense of the word. Unlike many faculty 
members who are liked because of their easy grading system, 
Dr. Brown's popularity is surpassed only by his dedication to 
the educational process. That is why he received the most 
}tes from this year's graduating class. In this interview Dr. 
Irown discusses some possible reasons for his "notoriety. " 



B: I think it may have something to do with 
the fact that I don't give exams. I give the 
class a syllabus with an outline which states 
'for a C you must..., for a B you must..., and 
for an A. ..Basically you have to pick your 
own position, state what you want and 
defend it. My philosophy is there is a "B" and 
there is a "B". People can take charge of their 
own education; I threaten them with that, ['m 
not taking charge of your learning 
experience-people have been nose lead and 
spoon fed for the past 16 years... 

S: Has this approach worked, in your 
estimation? 

B: It's hard to evaluate this sort of 
process. ..The responsibility lies ultimately on 
the student, totally... There is a contract 
(between myself and the students). ..I've been 
pushing the responsibility on the student, 
"you're big kids..." 

S: What effect does the contract marking have 
on your students? 

B: Dealing with cases in business policy, 
administrative practices, personal 
management, all of these become very 
judgemental-not right or wrong issues. If you 
want to get something on this, challenge me, 
call me on it, is what I tell them. Either 
you're going to stand up and fight sometime, 
develop convictions. ..The person is going to 
have to get up some courage and have to 
stand up before the class. In the process the 
students evaluate themselves... Sometimes a 
student will ask how long a paper should be. 
Should it be typed? etc. I'd rather get five 
pages of something good than assigning a ten 
page paper and getting five pages of garbage 
and five pages of the stuff I want. 

S: Has this been a problem? 

B: The biggest problem is the students' 
inability to write well. Some people see me as 
a frustrated English professor. I've been trying 
to get a handle on this problem, but English 
101 and 102 iiad been the only required 
courses. Then we added until recently 



Busings ( ommunication 

forces the studei i<> il.

5 What kind hi feedback ha >t< had 
this approach? 

B: Some students come m and say "I really 
got carried away with that", and •'it woi 
Every once in a while someone is 
"although it was tOUgh, I -jut s<>nicthmL> 

of it." 

.V: Howard, just t<> change the loiu <>t 
this interview a little, could we talk about 
your involvement with students, and outsnU 
your role as a professor. 

B: Well, outside of class, in my advisory role, 
I see quite a lew students.. .1 looked at my 
calendar for the 76-77 academic year and 
counted over 175 appointments, and that 
doesn't include the number of students I've 
seen outside the office. ..I've enjoyed working 
the resident assistants during a training session 
and once had the privilege o( speaking to a 
group of dorm students during one of their 
evening sessions. Those experiences, along 
with encounter with a number of students in 
an Osgood Hill conference, have been quite 
rewarding. 

S: Do you have any problems getting along 

with students? 

B: It's funny 'cause most of my students are 
either seniors or graduate students and part of 
my thing has been an informality. Howard's 
the name, not Dr. 1 have a role, but respeel 
has to be earned.. .some students have a 
problem with calling me by my lust name... I 
guess the role dictates my nature, it sa\ s "be 
easy on him", but SI 0.000.00 and 3 more 
years of college commands respect' 
("expletive deleted!"). Anyone trying to 
teach a course without going out and working 
in the k real world' can do something in a 
theoretical way, however, alter working out 
there for 15 years. I believe I've brought a 
realistic outlook to the job.

MANUEL "TINY" FERNANDEZ 



W/zerceve/' /Vze name "Tiny" is mentioned on this campus one person comes to mind. The 
name is in no way a description of this young man who, aside from his many contributions 
to student government, stands a modest 6 feet 3 inches tall. Many call him controversial, 
others label him with some pleasant and some not-so-pleasant attributes. But there is no 
question as to the respect and reverence many fellow students and staff members hold for 
Tiny. Among his many accomplishments are his presence on the following student 
organizations: President, Black Student Union (1973-75); Justice, SMU University Court 
(1974-76); Member, SMU Affirmative Action Committee (1974-77); Chairman, College 
Now Advisory Board C75-'76); Student Senator ('73-74, 75-77); Member, SMU Board of 
Governors (75-77); Vice President, Student Senate (76-77); and he now holds the highest 
ranking student government position, President of the Student Senate. In an interview with 
Scrimshaw, Tiny spoke on some of the concerns he has as both a student and a Black man 
on this campus. He has added a valuable dimension to this publication.

S: Why did you come to SMU? 

TF: After graduating from high school in 
1971 I went to a Junior College and didn't last 
more than a semester and a half, then quit. 
My high school background was deficient-I 
began working-it didn't amount to much. I 
started working within the low income com- 
munity, mostly with black folks in the Youth 
Resources Bureau of Brockton. It wasn't 
enough so I decided to go to SMU to hope- 
fully work in social work. Then through some 
prodding of friends I became involved in stu- 
dent government. I was still not ready for a 
serious encounter with education. ..coming 
from an urban setting to SMU which is pre- 
dominantly white institution which was, and 
still is, inherently racist. The decision wasn't a 
great one. SMU was new, and if I was to go to 
a white institution, why not go to one which 
was relatively young and presumably open to 
change. Everyone comes to a point in life 
where he asks himself "What is my destiny in 
life?" I saw mnyself working at short range 
projects-and I wanted something else-I 
needed some professional training. I realize 
that, this being a capitalistic society, the 
things I was working on within my commu- 
nity seemed to go but so far. I had a naive 
view as to the effectiveness of my approach. 



S: What is your major concern in life? 

TF: My major concern in life is with Black 
people-African people-I realize that all my 
involvement in student affairs has given me 
much knowledge and insight. I'm very com- 
mitted to the total liberation of all oppressed 
people. I want to contribute to the struggle, 
but not as a politician. After graduate school 



I'd like to work as a student services adminis- 
trator. Most Black students are not suffi- 
ciently prepared to confront the racism and 
challenges inherent in a University. I feel m\ 
talents could be utilized to their greatest 
potential in such a field. My major concern 
within this institution is students, all students. 
There are others around here who are 
Machiavellians, not really concerned with stu- 
dent interests. Most students care \cr\ little 
about student government, or student politics, 
per se. they're very complacent. There doesn't 
exist in student government a philosophy that 
would give student representatives something 
to work from, a goal to work towards. There 
needs to be a vehicle to effect change, one 
which will in turn educate students as to the 
political machinery of this University . 



5: How important is it to politicize students at 
SMU? 

TF: Well. Massachusetts is a political state 
and we are a state institution, which is politi- 
cally controlled, my fellow students feel that 
student representatives (or student "leaders"" 
as some call them, huh!) do nothing but pla\ 
silly political games. Yes. this is true in some 
instances-some people are embroiled in politi- 
cal bull shit, but there are some of us who are 
constantly involved with the state political 
system, that is the politics you pla\ to get 
money for the library, the "Keep SMI Inde- 
pendent" campaign, lobbying for other SMI 
interests, and so on. But just within the Uni- 
versity, you must get invoked with the trian- 
gular system, the student-facult\ -administra- 
tion triangle. The fight for student interests 
alone is an onerous struggle which must be 
carried on dav in and dav out. constantK. 



Students should be in the forefront. The "Spe- 
cial Student" issue which the Vets Club was 
very much involved in, is a prime example of 
what concerned, organized students can 
accomplish. ..Now it's the library deficiency; 
SMU's accreditation; Bucks for Books. ..for 
some reason some students don't have the ini- 
tiative, because if they cared about the future 
of SMU they would be pushing constantly... 
People take the attitude that it's not their 
problem, or "That's the job of the elected offi- 
cials." 

S: How do you feel about that? Isn't that 
your job as a student rep? 

TF: No, It's more than that. When a student 
is elected to any position on this campus or 
any campus it is his responsibility to 
articulate the views of his constituents. That 
means that the rep is to go back to his 
constituency and give his position on certain 
issues, then get their input before he returns 
to the elected body. It's a two-pronged 
responsibility. The student rep should be 
more responsive to the student body, they are 
the ones who vote him or her in and they 
should be sure that those whom they elect 
operate in their best interests. ..by addressing 
those issues affecting the well being of the 
total student populus... 

S: As a Black man how do you see the Black 
community in terms of the future of this 
University? 

TF: Contrary to popular belief, I see a real 
change in the forseeable future, probably in 
the next year; not only within the Black stu- 
dent community, but in the Black community 
as a whole... In the past the major concern of 
the Black community here was their status-as 
a social community, academically, culturally. 
I see the thrust now towards the incoming 
group of students-that is, not neglecting the 
current inequities-getting a jump on the prob- 
lems and challenges that Black students have 
relative to their participation in a predomi- 
nantly white institution. As such, however, the 
ultimate concerns should be with academic 
excellence, cultural enrichment, and a student 
should be equipped for a serious encounter 
with once again, a white majority educational 
This is not negating the fact that 
trie has a responsibility not just to 

students, but especially to the Black students 
of SMU. It not only has a obligation to 
develop an affirmative acl oust 

also be sincerely committe< t of 

Equal Opportunity.. .So I

PETER VATOUSIOU 



Known to many of his friends on campus as the "Rock". Peter Vatousiou is a unique 

individual in his own riglit. His warmth and kindness, coupled with his devotion to this 
year's senior class as President of the Class of 1977. make him a prime candidate for a spot 
in this year's yearbook. Peter is a native of Hyannis, Mass. He majored in Busim ss 
Management with a particular interest in Psychology, people and public relations He tame 
to us from Greece (indirectly) via Springfield, Massachusetts. When asked why he chos 
SMU, this is what he had to say: 



PV: Being from Springfield, U-Mass 
Amherst was close but I wanted to go 
to a small University where a student 
has the opportunity of being a Peter 
Vatousiou or a John Brown, an 
individual as opposed to a number; 
lost in the shuffle... When I was in 
High School I was on the football 
team. I was a regular jock... I needed 
to learn how to study and apply 
myself, and I feel I've benefitted by 
having to learn to be my own 
person-being away from home... You 
have to be able to make your own 
decisions, handle your own affairs, 
fiances, etc... I strongly recommend 
that a student should be on his own. 
As a famous philosopher once said, 
"It is better to have lived and learned, 
than never to have lived at all." 

S: Pete, tell me a little about the 
Presidency, what made you run, etc. 

PV: The reason I ran for President (of 
the class of '77), was to get people 
involved... The first two or three years 
here I got a feeling of apathy. I didn't 



didn't care or just weren't informed...! 
took the person to person approach 
while in office. I felt that since it was 
my last year I should do something 
for both the class and myself-a form 
of accomplishment. ..I decided to get 
involved outside of the 
academics... When you get out into the 
real world, involvement is what's 
going to keep you sane or drive you 
crazy, depending on what you're 
involved in... 

S: How do you feel about SMU? 

PV: It's similar to the United States, 
on a small scale. It's somewhat of a 
melting pot; people from different 
parts of the country, or the world. 
Each person has an equal opportunitx 
to get involved in the University and 
be successful, academically. Some 
students from other countries may 
have language difficulties, but if we're 
in this together; if people are willing 
to work with other.. .By encouraging 
each other both academically and 
socially, we can make their college 
education that much more 
fiilfillina-esner.iallv when thev set out 



like the "country club" atmosi 
we have here. 

S: fj you had something to wy to tin 
University, in parting, what would 
you sue to SMI That i S '■"> 
people, the granite, concrete, ft< 
food. etc. 

PV: I never really thought of il like 
that. When I Hunk o! SMI It 
depends on hov* I look ,ii it. ..I 
separate its differenl aspects-the 
administrators have been very helpful 
to me and other students, and I hope 
that other students have been able to 
take advantage ol the Student 1 ife 
Offices and what the Dean 
Students has to offer. 

The professors and administrators, 

whether students realize it or not. are 
here to help the students... without 
students there wouldn't be an\ need 
for them. I just urge the faculty 
members and administrators to make 
students aware of what facilities are 
available to them... 




PAUL McGINN 



During his four years at SMU Paul McGinn has been, to 

say the least, quite an active student. In this respect he has 

been exceptional. Aside from holding the distinction of being 

the sole student representative on the Board of Trustees, he 

has devoted an enormous amount of his spare time to serving 

the interests of the entire student body. Among his many 

exploits is the impressive list of committees and organizations 

which he has served: Resident Halls Congress; 

Faculty Academic Affairs; Student Senate; 

'■ Life Ofice, two years as Resident Assistant and 

in his senior year; Massachusetts Student 

Screen Committee for both Director of 

Hoi University Safety and Security; SMU 

Presi 'ee to Budget Review Board; and on 

numes for the Board of Trustees. As a 

student, extremely impressive, and at SMU 

he has bt xception than the rule. 



J: What kinds of changes have you 
gone through as a student here? And 
why the impressive list of activities ' 

M: When I first started at SMU, being 
a Jaeques Cousteau fan, I decided to 
become a Bio major and later realized 
that too much of my time was either 
spent in class or in labs... sometimes 30 
hours a week. But being a politieal 
science major gave me much more 
time for my self... there are no labs... so 
the rest was involvement time. I 
became involved in the Student 
Senate and later in the Dorm 
Congress. As Senate Treasurer my 
attitude began to falter and I felt like 
giving up as far as student government 
was concerned. There were times 
when I felt at a loss when I saw kids 
going to the Rat or to the gym, but I 
guess involvement is the kind of thing 
you learn. It becomes a part of you. I 
don't regret anything I've done. 

S: What do you mean? You don't 
regret doing what vou've gotten out 
of it? 

M: To me the university's a give and 
take situation. You get an education 
and you should return something to 
it. I've gotten a hell of a lot out of it. 
It's taught me a lot about priorities in 
life. In the long run, it works out. 

S: How about your experiences as a 
Resident Assistant? Have you had any 
problems being a student - administra- 
tor? 



S What da \<>u mean l>\ frustrations ' 

M: By frustrations I'm talking from .1 
student advocate point ol view and 
one who would encourage mo 
student participation. Sometimes 1 
leel as though I'm working alone on 
certain issues which I leel arc pretty 
important and affect us all. 

S: /low do you fed about the general 
attitudes amongst students, especially 
with regard to getting involved ' 

M: Some would use the apt term 
apathetic. 1 feel that most people are 
driven by their own sell interests. 
There's nothing wrong with thai, they 
just have to break away from that and 
see themselves in a larger framework. 
It's the person who says 'you can't do 
anything about it' and goes to l he Rat 
to have a beer that discourages me. I 
me there are three types of students 
here: those who care and know what 
to do about it, those who care and are 
too lazy to do anything about it. and 
those who are too lazy to know what 
to care about. It's the last two that 
frustrate me, especially the third. 
They are denying themselves the 
opportunity to get what the 
University's all about. They're hurting 
the University and there are probably 
many students out there who would 
be willing to get something out of this 
University.

PROFILE 



BOG 




Steve McGrath 




'Thinking back on 1976-1977, I 
would say that the best moments this 
year were the allocation of $52,000 
surplus as a result of the state takeover 
of the maintenance Account, ' , says 
Board of Governors Chairman Steve 
McGrath. "I feel they made a very 
wise decision as far as the allocation 
of $10,000 for a concert for Spring 
Weekend, with all the proceeds going 
for the Bucks for Books campaign. 
The remainder will go into the capital 
outlay budget for improvement and 
expansion." 

"As far as the most trying moments 
we've had on the board," chimed in 
Vice-Chairman Pete Blunsden, "it was 
the general feeling of the Board of 
Governors that the Sunset Room was 
a good project, but was losing money. 
If the room was to be kept open, it 
would have to be subsidized by both 
administration and students." 
McGrath reminisced, "The loss on the 
room was just too great to justify its 
staying open." 

"I just hope," said McGrath, "that 
the capital outlay plan as voted by the 
BOG will improve the Campus Center 
atmosphere, both visually and aesthet- 
ically."

Ron Desrosiers 



WUSM 



October 1974 saw the birth of WUSM 90.5 FM (mono), a fledgling 10 watt station that almost 
didn't get off the ground. Over the years we've seen WUSM grow and mature. September 1976 
was another such feat; it was at this time that WUSM went stereo. The honor of hitting the w< 
switch was performed by General Manager Ron Magnant, but the work and sweat was the effort 
of many. WUSM thanks Mike Bucko, Bill Bylund, Ron Magnant, Bob Randall. Joe Toomey, 
Bob Shea and numerous other station managers. 

In an interview conducted by SCRIMSHA W writer Mike Laney, alias the Sundance Kid oj 
WUSM, General Manager Ron Magnant and Program Director Ron Desrosiers revealed some 
of their sentiments and reflections of their past years with WUSM. 



S: Ron, what was the most memorable event in 
1976-77 for you as General Manager? 



M: Well, Sundance, the building of the new 
studio, all the waiting and finally going stereo 
in September was a nice feeling. Another first 
was the remote telecast of the SMU hockey 
and basketball games. Our Educational pro- 
gramming under you, Mike, grew; we did the 
Referendum Questions: Showdown with Sun- 
dance, the Bottle Bill, Flat Rates for Electric- 
ity, State takeover of the Utilities, Gun Con- 
trol. Our membership has tripled since last 
year. We have people helping in all phases. 
Our quality of programming is now much 
more diversified since we went stereo. Going 
stereo interested a lot of people and now peo- 
ple are more willing to get involved. They 



spend more time getting their shows together. 
Also, we now have special programming Mich 
as the Jazz Spectrum (Mike Moran), Howard 
Glasser's Chelidehs" Classical (Leo Kenny), 
the Sundance Kid Alternative lakes Show, 
and the Easy Listening Show (Gar) Kurds). 

S: As Program Director Ron. what changi 5 
have you seen occur in the station? 

D: I found that instead of just coming ow the 
air and spinning some discs, people arc gel- 
ting a little more professional, their talking is 
better, there is less dead air. better ad libs, and 
'tighter cueing*. 

Going from mono to stereo is like da) and 
night. The place is totally different. !t was like 
going professional, but the only difference 
was locale. 




SENATOR EDWARD M. KENNEDY 



Senator Edward M. Kennedy visited SMU in October during his 1976 
re-election campaign. 

Kennedy voiced his concern on what effect Watergate would have on 
young people's involvement in politics in 1977." He said he hoped that 
young people would become involved despite Watergate. 

Current issues with which Kennedy dealt included the Internal Revenue 
Code, the nation's economy and unemployment. 

Before closing, Kennedy endorsed Jimmy Carter as a presidential 
candidate, feeling that: "Under Carter the working government will have a 
better chance to deal with the issues and that he offers the best hope for 
restoration of the economy." 




WARREN FARRELL 



Co-sponsored by the Lecture Series and the SMU Women's Center, author of The 
Liberated Man, Warren Farrell, addressed an SMU audience in January of 1977. 

Mr. Farrell's lecture avoided any hype on the book itself, and he presented the 
'consciousness-raising' theme through a number of entertaining and revealing mediums. 

Besides a question and answer exchange, a role reversal experiment was done to give 
both sexes a chance to experience the different personality traits evolving from active and 
passive roles. 

By far however, the most popular portion of the show was the Man's beauty contest 
(called "Boy America Beauty Contest"). 

Mr. Farrell's appearance at SMU proved to be most interesting and unusual and 
needless to say quite enjoyable for all. 



STOKELY CARMICHAEL 




Civil Rights leader Stokely Carmichael was the guest speaker sponsored 
by the Lecture Series in February of 1977. 

Carmichael spoke on topics including revolution and Pan Africanism. He 
advocated Pan- Africanism, and the total liberation of Africa under 
"scientific socialism.'" 

Other topics covered by Carmichael were the struggle between Africans 
and White men throughout history and the role of education in society. 
Carmichael said the ultimate purpose of higher education should be to "serve 
humanity." 



ALTERNATIVE 
COMMUNITY THEATER 

Begun in the Fall of 1975, the Alternative Community Theater sought to give SMU more of a variety in entertainment. The 
aim of the group was to extend theatrical productions rather than compete with the already established SMU Theater 
Company. 

The ACT provided an avenue of expression for original material for those whose material may otherwise have 
remained unknown. In addition they aimed at performing less widely known works concentrating on cultural value rather 
than audience drawing appeal. 

Among the plays presented by the ACT were: "A New Revue," a medley of songs from popular Broadway musicals: and 
An Evening of One Act Plays including "Aria da Copo" by Edna St. Vincent Millay and "Zoo Story" by Edward Alive 

Due to internal strife, the ACT dissolved in the Spring of 1977. Good intentions were overpowered In Lack of 
organization.

MEN'S BASKETBALL 

Although the Corsair basketball team managed only an 11-12 final slate for the 1976-77 season, there 
were hopeful signs. First, it was a rebuilding year, and the future nucleus of freshmen improved 
dramatically towards the end of the campaign. Secondly, the Corsairs boasted a decent 11-8 record going 
into the final four games of the season, but found they had saved the toughest opposition for last. 

Coach Bruce 'Wheels' Wheeler must have felt he was on some kind of yo-yo, the way the season had its 
ups and downs. After hovering around the .500 plateau for much of the year, the Corsairs found 
themselves with a 6-7 record on February 2. Four straight victories, including consecutive two-point 
thrillers over Curry and Fitchburg, followed, and the record was 10-7. An embarrassing loss to 
Framingham was next, and then another win gave the Corsairs an 11-8 record and a good shot at 
post-season play with four games to go. 

It was not to be, however. Not by a long shot. Rhode Island College was first, and SMU found 
themselves the victims of some very questionable timekeeping on RIC's home-court, losing 67-65. In the 
next three battles, the Corsairs found themselves pitted against, in order: the number one Division III team 
in New England; one of the two teams to beat the number one Division III team all year; and a Division II 
squad with a schedule that included Notre Dame. So much for a .500 season. 

There were definitely good times, let us not be misled, however. Most of those highlights were supplied 
by the two-some of Doug Crabtree and Mark Champagne, although there were exceptions. Like Mark 
MacLeod's 25 point-12 rebound performance against Nichols. Mainly, however, it came down to the two 
C's. 

Senior co-captain Crabtree and junior Champagne led this team. Let there be no doubt. The two tied 

:eam lead in scoring. Champagne led the team in assists, and tied for the lead (with Len Brophy) in 

:hampagne was second in rebounds (although only 6'2") and in steals. Beyond the statistics, 

and Champagne were the. inspirational leaders: Crabtree quietly, with intense 110% effort, 

Champagne more talkative, and always there when the points were needed, always ready to congratulate or 

chastise a teammate, whichever the situation required. 

With only three ting seniors (Crabtree, MacLeod, and Keith Miceli) the future looks promising. 

Fine size in the fr< t C6'8", 6'8", 6'5", 6'5") and a hot-shot transfer ready for next year (6'3" Jon 

Johansen, look out ie lo-it-all), may make the return to a New England power a good possibility in 

the next couple of yeai.

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL 




What could have been an up and down season for the Lady Corsair Basketball Team turned out to be a winning one. 
Nine wins and five losses was the record set by the team. Led by senior tri-captain Pat Gallagher, junior Dale Dawicki and 
sophomore Mary McCarthy the girls went out and played with determination and some original moves that will be 
remembered for the 1976-77 season. 

Their zone defense was noted by opposing coaches one of the determining factors in many of the wins this season. 

Brown University was one of the teams stunned by the 2-3 zone, only four Brown players scored against SMU. 

The high scorer for the Lady Corsairs this year was Mary McCarthy. Mary, a sophomore guard, could be everywhere at 
once it seemed. She has a mean jumper, a great behind the back dribble, and she stole the ball so many time most 
opponents came down the court expecting her to be there. 

Top rebounder Marilyn Caswell always seemed to be overlooking everything. A 6' 1" junior center, she could be found 
in the thick of things most of the time. 

Outstanding freshmen Sally Darlington and Ellen O'Rourke helped the team in every aspect, especially when it came 
to the 1-2-1-1 press. Ellen could always be seen making an aggressive move to steal the ball. Sally had some great baseline 
moves, moving to the basket for a smooth lay-up. 

Another outstanding player was Mary-Beth Hill. A 5'2" sophomore guard, she had her own jump shot that she hit 
from almost any place 20-25 feet from the hoop. 

The team went to the Massachusetts Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women Basketball Championships 
Division 3, at Bentley College. There were eight teams and SMU was seeded sixth. The girls played a tough 
Harvard-Radcliffe team and lost. Harvard-Radcliffe went on to win the tournament.

HOCKEY 




Standing alone in the crea 

with three seconds kit m the 
season's finale with Westfield, 
SMU's senior co-captain Richie 

Ahern got the puck and lired the 
shot that so often found the net 

in his brilhant hockcv career 

Westfield's goalie lunged to his 
right and turned the dn\e av.ay 
with his pads into an empty 
corner as the bu//er sounded 
ending the game and the season 

It was one of the main 
frustrating events that typified .1 
frustrating season for the icemen. 
After running up a 5-2 tirst 
semester mark. the Corsairs 
fizzeled out down the stretch 
dropping 10 of 13 contests 

The season was not without its 
highlights. however. Ahern 
finished his career with an even 
100 points - leaving him SMI - 
greatest scorer ever. 

Ahern's linemates. center 1 ric

Corsairs though, m 1978. 19 of 
the 25 starters will return.

Men's Fencing 



1976-77 will be remembered in SMU fencing as a year of close camaraderie, strong 
individual efforts and a lot of spirit. 

Under the leadership of senior co-captains Grant Colley (Sabre) and Mike Laney (Epee) 
the team's proficiency and spirits rose. 

Seniors leading the cheering section like Dave Fontaine (The White Knight) 
Mike Laney, set the mood for SMU's merry band of swordsmen. 

The season held many joys and disappointments for Coaches Eugene Williams and Ralph 
Tykoki as the Corsairs garnered a 4-7 record. 

Senior Grant Colley distinguished himself as he finished 5th in New England. 

Next year's returns hold much promise. 




Women's Fencing 



Although the record may show that the SMU Women's Fencing Team had a bad season 
(2-8), the numbers cannot truly tell the whole story. 

The female Corsairs under Coach Bob Gurney's direction faced some of their most 
grueling competition in season; also 90% of the team as composed of rookies. 

Junior co-captains Jane Offringa and Jo-Ellen Casey can look forward to a b etter year in 
1978 as their newly accrued talent returns. 

The highlight of the 1976-77 season was SMU's stunning upset over Holy Cross 15-1 . It 
will be remembered that the SMU Women's Fencing team got that match off to an excellent 
start as they fought almost flawlessly, dropping only 1 point in 1 6 times at the mat. 




Men's Swimming 



Mediocrity, like beauty and humor, is a relative proposition. The Corsair swimmers 
splashed their way to a 5-5 record in 1977 - - mediocre by many standards. 

Actually, it was the best performance by the aquamen ever! With squeakers over 
Brandies, Nichols, and Keene State; and big wins over Holy Cross and Lowell, the aquamen 
easily out did last year's 1-7 mark. 

Dave Olson led a squad of young and eager swimmers with a handful of new records. The 
shy sophomore make SMU history with a sparkling 1 Oth place finish in the collegiate New 
Englands in the 100 yard freestyle event. 

Jeff Danner and Ed Feeley, two newcomers provided continual excitement. Danner was 
usually seen out front in the sprint events while Feeley made his mark in the middle 
freestyle events.

Beginning in 1972 with the Broadway musical "Godspell," the Concert Series has 
presented many of the most popular contemporary recording artists. The 197 school 

year featured performances by the National Lampoon Co.. Bob Dylan Joan Baez and the 
Rolling Thunder Review, Tavares, Aztec Two-Step, Lonnie Liston Smith. Brass 
Construction and Loggins and Messina. Numerous other smaller attractions were presented 
in the Friday night mixers in the Campus Center. 

The 1976-77 Concert Series was put at a disadvantage because of the substantial loss on 
the Loggins & Messina Concert. However, the Concert Series did produce two shows during 
the Fall semester: A "Clean Living" concert and a "Concert Series Night On The Town" 
mixer which were great successes.

Back in early April the SMU baseball season was looked on with barely restrained excitement and 
undisguised optimism. And why not? The Corsairs boasted their strongest squad ever - a senior double- play 
combination at second and third, Joe Jason, an All-America second baseman, an outstanding group of 
junior transfer students, and a batch of new freshman talent. Those assets couple with the longest and one 
of the most competitive schedules in New England had many observers conceeding New England's division 
three to SMU, even before the season had started. 

At season's end the Corsair batsmen had only a 21-23 record to show for all the pre-season speculation 
Though eight of nine starters batted over .300 for the season and the Corsairs were still rated in the top ten 
it was a dismal season. In fact, it was Coach Bruce Wheeler's first taste of loosing in six seasons. 

What happened? 

Several key factors were responsible for the Corsairs inability to consistently win the "big" game. 

To open the season, SMU traveled south to the Central New Jersey Baseball Classic where Coach 
Wheeler's squad hoped to begin impressively against some top division one clubs. It didn't quite happen 
that way. The Corsairs came away from New Jersey with an 0-7 record, a hole they could never quite dig 
themselves out of. 

In addition to the bad start, SMU's pitching never shaped up as expected. While the Corsairs scored runs 
sometimes more than enough, the pitching allowed just a few too many tallies. This made for a long season. 

Two lapses in crucial double-headers against division three clubs Salem State and Bridgewater, cost the 
Corsairs any reasonable tournament bids. 

Bright spots?

TENNIS 



"The magic word is experience. The guys on the team could hit the ball as hard as anyone they played, 
but the tactics strategy and mental ability just wasn't always with them." Third year Varsity Tennis Coach 
Jak Beardsworth reflected the 1977 season. 

With four of the singles players being freshmen the much needed experience wasn't part of the tennis 
team's game plan this year. The record was 4 wins, 5 losses and one tie. But the record doesn't show the 
close matches that the players had. 

Sophomore Captain Steve Charest played number one in singles. Steve didn't win all his matches but 
showed his reason for being the number one player consistently. Steve played ten matches this year, five of 
which he split sets and went to a deciding third. Steve also played number two doubles. 

The number two player Greg Hennemuth a freshman is a very emotional player. Greg won five of ten 
singles matches and voiced his feelings in the process keeping his matches exciting. 

The number three man, a junior, Brad Cheney had an identical record to Greg and played number one 
doubles with Steve Charest. Brad is the third year player on the team and has improved considerably this 
year. 

Seeded number four, another freshmen Bill Mercure, had the best win loss record on the team with six 
wins and three losses. 

Playing five, George Desrochers also a freshman had a fair season. Four wins and five losses, George had 
some tough competition. 

Sharing the last singles position Ken Nieva a freshman and Joe Hayes a returner, compiled a 3 3 and 4 2 
record respective]' 

There were five close matches. SMU won against Assumtion and Stonehill 5 4 yet lost by the same 
margin to 'ridgewater. The only tie with Curry was a tie because of darkness, a strange 



occurence for tennis 
9-0 and URI 8-1. 1

season. Next year the i

There were two big losses and two big wins. The losses came against Brandeis 

cr RIC 7-2 and ENC 9-0. The other loss was expected but the team gave their

When someone or something makes 
us happy, them moving on 
brings with it sadness.

D/ED FEBRUARY 8, 1977 



The theme of the 1977 yearbook is involvement, we, the staff and myself spent well over a year in efforts 
of capturing that involvement here at SMI). The end results (this book) reflect not our abilities but the 
involvementt and the lack of it here at SM U .

-Why is a nice university like 



SMU involved with an ail agency 
like MOORE & SLATER?_ 



Well, SMU studentsand graduates 
are part of the staff at Moore & 
Slater, foronething. 

The president of Moore & Slater 
teaches advertising and marketing 
courses at SMU. 

Two staff members of Moore & 
Slaterare pursuing a Masters in 
Business Administration at SMU 
through theagency's Educational 



IMcDOff 



Assistance Program. 

And Moore & Slater handles the 
advertising forSMU's Division of 
Continuing Studies. 

The relationship between SMU 
and Moore & Slater isn't talk. It's 
the kind of active involvement 
which ought to be found between 
a university and its local business 
community. It helps us all.
