What a change of life-style from being a life-guard at Myrtle Beach to being a pro-

But all things change and change happens to everyone. Change is a necessity and 
should be expected to occur in ah parts of hfe. In some cases change is a good thing. 
Take my bed sheets for example, their screaming to be changed. We change clothes, 
we change the radio station, we change our names, we even spend change. So what

But if we didn't change and we became complacent with ourselves we would never 
grow. Change causes us to stretch our potential and reach beyond what we have 
already attained. With change comes a challenge and with challenge comes growth. 

All things change, change is a necessity to life. It should be expected and welcom- 
ed as a chance to srow.

Compared to last year's count at the 
close of registration, enrollment is down 
this year by 113 students. The number 
presently enrolled is 1219. However, 
"late registration, nurses consortiums 
and academy extensions will determine 
the final figure." said MaryElam, Direc- 
tor of Records. "A final total of 1350 
students is anticipated." she said. 

On a larger scale, compared to 1985 
emoUment records, the college has lost 
at least 1 18 students. The final eiuollment 
figure for 1985 was 1468 while the pro- 
jected total for 1986 is 1350. 

Ron Barrow, Director of Admissions 
and Public Relations, attributed this 
decrease to three factors. He said that 
more students are choosing to attend 

community colleges while financial dif- 
ficulties and the lack of commitmei 
the part of parents and students to ob- L 
taining a Christian education are keeping I 
others away. 

In related areas, where once the Nurs- 
ing Division claimed a greater portion of I 
the student body, the Business Division I 
now runs a close second with a 243-241 \ 
ratio of students. 

According to official records, interest | 
in the Humanities Division has risen 2( 
percent and specifically by 10 percent ti 
the Communications Department 

The Honors Program has acquired 29 I 
new members bringing the membership I 
to 60. "This is the largest enrollment the j 
program has ever had." said Jerry Glad- 
son, program director. 


The Facts About 


Reprinted from 
Listen Magazine 

"Crack" {or "rock," as il is called on 
the West Coast) is one of the newest and 
deadliest fads in [he U.S. today. It is a 
ready-to-smoke form of cocaine that is 
easily affordable by teenagers and has 
been called the ultimate high. A close 
look at this supposedly new drug, 
however, reveals that it is nothing more 
than the ultimate rip-off. 

The truth about crack and its effects 
are examined in the article "Crack: The 
Myths and the Menace" in the October 
1986 issue of /.irren. 

Crack is produced through a simple 
chemical process that extracts the cocaine 
alkaloid, making it smokable. The im- 
purities and "cuu" added by the dealers 

are not removed. These cuts can be 
anything from corn starch to poisonous 
local anesthetics. 

"The more intese high derives solely 
from the method by which it's used, 
namely smoking," explains Dr. Arnold 
M. Washton, director of research for 
800-COCAINE. "Smoking a drug sends 
a high concentration of that drug direct- 
ly to the brain in less than 10 seconds." 
This is how crack gets its power, not from 
the fact that it's a purer or stronger drug. 

The most frightening thing about crack 
is its abiUty to quickly produce a 

this drug-the fact that the high 

tense, that it wears off quickly, and that 

it leaves the user craving more-all add up

plaints and receive a sympathetic ear.

High Blood Pressure and Alcohol 

Reprinted from Listen Magazine 

"To your health" is a popular toast, 
but too much toasting can lead to high 
blood pressure, one of the nation's 
leading health problems. 

Researchers today are investigating the 
reladonship between high blood pressure 
and the use of alcohol. A new study in 
California indicates thai long-term heavy 
use of alcohol can contribute to high 
blood pressure in some people. The rela- 
tionship seems to be more pronounced 
among white males over age 55. 

The relationship of alcohol to high 
blood pressure appears 


:. Scie 

that eavy alcohol consumption may cause 
elevated blood pressure, but they are just 
beginning to understand this relationship. 
and it is unclear how much alcohol is 

The point when alcohol can become 
harmful is called the "threshold." It is 
at this point alcohol begins to affect 
blood pressure. Some studies indicate one 
or two drinks a day are not harmful, 

while other studies show a progressive 
relationship: the more alcohol consum- 
ed, the greater the risk of high blood 

The California study shows a sLght in- 
crease in blood pressure among men who 
had one or two drinks a day, but women 
who drank the same amount actually 
recorded lower blood pressure than abs- 
tainers. The strongest relationship bet- 
ween alcohol consumption and blood 
pressure is found among those people 
who reported consuming between three 
and eight drinks a day. Researchers ad- 
mil the threshold is difficult to determine, 
and ihey say it probably varies a great 
deal from one individual to another. 

This study also showed ihai people 
who drank beer and wine had slightly 
lower blood pressure readings than those 
who preferred Uquor. Researchers believe 
th^s difference may be due to the smaller 
■ of elhanol (a type of alcohol) in 

.- the fact that many beer ana wr 
drinkers consume their beverage witli 

Fonunately, the effects of alcohol w{ 

off almost as quickly as a hangov, 

Those who drink regularly have con- 
sistently higher than normal blood 
pressures, but even heavy drinkers who 
go "on the wagon" for several days show 
a decrease in blood pressure. 

Millions of Americans are at increas- 
ed risk for stroke, heart disease and 
kidney disease because of high blood 
pressure. High blood pressure cannot be 
cured, but it can be treated. In mild cases, 
simple changes inlifestyle may keep the 
condition under control. In more serious 
cases, physicians might prescribe medica- 
tion and encourage their patients to lose 
weight, reduce the amount of salt in their 
diet and get regular exercise. 

For people who are concerned about 
their blood pressure, here is a simple sug- 
gestion: cut down on alcohol 

Even though high blood pressure is a 
dangerous heahh proglem, it is con- 
trollable for most people. The American 
Heart Association recommends ihat peo- 
ple who have high blood pressure should 
follow their doctor's advice.

Who Cares? 

By Chris McKee and Tim Peters 
At Southern College, "care" has 
I become more than a verb. CARE, an 
acronym for Collegiate Adventists 
\ Reaching Everyone, is the orgeinization 
I chat directs all non-academic religious, 
I health, and mission activities. CARE 
I operates Campus Ministries, Collegiate 
T Adventists for Belter Living (CABL), 
' Collegiate Missions, and the new Chris- 
Leadership Advancement Source 
So who cares? You do. If not, you 
I should. Students involved in CARE ac- 
:s are guaranteed an exciting, uplif- 
ting experience-often the key to a fulfill- 
ing school year. Anyone can find an area 
of interest in one of their many programs, 
which range from the weight-lifting club 
Friday evening Afterglows. What in- 
erests you? 

Were you ever given the title "most 
likely to wear paisely with plaid"? Are 
you comfortable with a three-piece navy 
; and brown polyester leisure suit? 
CARE has a place in Clown Ministries 
varmT". and ready. 

D( you have a plump friend, once 
I elected "most likely to explode," who is 
I ready to moderate his dining habits? The 
I road to the petite clothing rack may begin 
with CABL. Two-hundred pounds later, 
your friend and yourself may become 
I CABL's Simmons & Fonda. 
Is your glassy-eyed roommate a victim 
I of midnight hallucinations? Is he often 
ome by the urge to plunge to his 
[ death from your first-story window? You 

have your foot in the door of AWARE, 
a substance abuse support group. 

Interested in becoming a student mis- 
sionary? Collegiate Missions is the first 
step toward an adventure spreading the 
gospel in the Far East, South America, 
the Pacific Islands, or another foreign 
mission field. 

These are just a few of the programs 
offered by CARE. Everyone is invited to 
drop in on the CARE officers at their 
headquarters in the Student Center. With 
their help, one may find a program 
perfectly suited to his or her int 

At the hebn of CARE stands Bob 
Folkenberg, SC's Assistant Chapli 
Mike Fulbright is the Campus Ministries 
coordinator, Ted Huskins directs CABL 
Kevin Costello is in charge of Collegiate 
Missions, and Alan Martin has CLAS 
Jill Bishop, CARE'S secretary, will guide 
visitors to their interest area. We hope 
that she^ wil l soon be very busy. 

the Collegiate Commitment weekend 
noted on the school calendar is a special 
Sabbath School, according to Ted 
Huskins, director of CABL. The activi- 
ty will be held in the gym on Saturday, 
September 6 at 9:50 a.m. "The purpose 
of the program is to familiarize students 
with the different activities CARE will be 
offering and to hopefully interest the

Saturday night, August 30, the Student 
Association brought the balmy tropics of 
Hawaii to Southern College. Students 
came attired in peachy beachy, summer 
wear that would definitely turn the head 
of Don Ho, himself. 

Gifts, games and fruit were some of the 
main attractions to the paradise-filled 
evening, the main attraction being the 
five grass-skirted beauties who passed out 
[eis, with a smile and a kiss. 

Door prizes consisted of everything 
from gift certificates to Baskin Robbins 
to stuffed animals. These prizes were 
awarded, at random, as names were 
drawn from the official brown bag, 
assisted by the "lovely" in the orange- 
flowered moo-moo. Richard Moody and 
Russell Atkins were the masters-of- 
ceremony for the evening. 

As students met new friends and old 
acquaintances, they were entertained by 
the Hookie-Lau Singers and the Hula 
Girls. The fun of the evening continued 
with Limbo, the Blind Skunk, a 
members-only game of hacky sack, the 
Killer Ring, a football game, and a water 
balloon toss which turned into a water 

Said Dr. Don Sahly laughingly to the 
Hula Girls, "I don't think your skirts 
meet up to the college dress code." Scott 
McClure rebutled with, "I thought they 
looked great." Said Chris McKee, 
"Luaus are important because they make 
you feel wann and good." 

The S. A. officers did a super job and 
thank-you to Gary Hoover and Mike 
Lorey for the tunes. Also a special thanks 
goes to Janelle Nemess and the Hula 
Girls for their fabulous job on the stage 

We hope you all enjoyed the Hawaiian 
Luau and until next week. Aloha!

a positive 

by Webster 

1. A striving against another superiority. 

2. A trial of skill or ability as in a contest. 

3. Business rivalry between firms for the same market. 

4. The struggle for existence among organisms. 

It is quite obvious from the above definitions that competition is not only a diverse 

erm, but it is also woven into every fiber of the American culture. We as Americans 

;an not escape competition. For example, politicians compete for votes, and we par- 

I ticipate. Automobile dealers compete for business, and we shop around, aiding in 

I [hat competitive struggle. Gas stations have "wars," and the consumers cheer as the 

I prices drop. Schools recruit (compete) for students. The head count allows us to cheer 

ur success or moum our losses. Young men and women seeking mates compete 

I for the best, the loveliest, their "dream come true." And finally, to bring it closer 

home, if you find yourself in a course where a curve is used to determine grades, 
]r if yuour grades will have an effect on your future, the competition becomes fierce, 

1 matter of life and death. 

So what is the problem with competition? Or is there a problem? How can we deal 
I with this aspect of our everyday life so that it will impact us in a positive way rather 
I than a negative way? 

The idea that cooperation comes from God and competition is from the devil is 
1 very narrow concept that is dangerous, to say the least. 
God didn't make mashed potatoes, and that doesn't make them bad. But too many, 
[ mashed potatoes can be bad. God didn't make competition, and that doesn't make 
, it bad, either. But an improper attitude toward competition can be bad. 

One of my favorite quotes is this: "The only competition worthy of a wise man 
s with himself." -Author unknown 

It would seem appropriate to say that as long as a person is SEEKING TO IM- 
PROVE HIMSELF, DOING HIS BEST, and is growing phsicaUy, mentally, social- 
ly, and spiritually, the competition encountered along the way would not only be 
welcomed, but it would be a must. The quahty and availability of automobiles, com- 
puters, televisions, public transportation, and our vast communications network have 
ulted from competition and free enterprise. Without competition, the above items 
I would not be available to all of us. 

Where has the problem with competition been? It seems that the traditional pro- 
I blem has been (and in some settmgs still is) with competition in sports and athletics. 
I ask, "WHY?" 

One of the main problems, as I see it, is that the terms "rivalry" and "competi- 
tion" have become synonymous when we talk about the negatives of sport. This is 
s mislakel Competition m sports and athletics can lead to rivalry, but this is not 
lulomatic. It is wrong to assume that every person relates to competition in sports 
,n the same way. The business man or educator that becomes obsessed with their 
work is called a workaholic and we applaud and promote them. The person who 
I gets enthused with sports is immature and has a problem. This is unfortunate. It is 
my strong feeling that the key to this dilemna is balance. Balance should be the key 
'3 everything we do. A balanced approach to life today would be one that had a 
well rounded hfestyle, where the physical, mental, social, and spiritual dimensions 
t all persued with vigor, and excellence was the goal in each area. This would 
Ji that when you studied, you would study with ail your might. When you wor- 
I shipped God, you would be diligent at being totally committed. When you persued 
relationships with others, you would become the best friend possible. When you played 
-r persued your physical and recreational activities, you would give it all you had— 100 
ercent. What a rewarding and beautivul lifestyle this would be. We need to make 
I time for each aspect while never trymg to put others down or humiliate them so we 
I would look good or so we could advance. Competition isn't bad, but bad people 
I do compete. It is the person and not the competition that needs help and direction. 

The intramural and recreational activity on this campus are provided a 
outlet for students and staff. They are provided for recreation and social ii 
as well as for the persuit of excellence in the psychomotor (physical) domain. 

It is my opinion that the intramural setting is a fantastic place where young people 
can learn to relate positively to competition and show growth and maturity in an 
area thai has taken a lot of abuse in the past. 

Don't let it be said of you that competition brings out the worst in you. Rather, 
let it be said that you are never satisfied with less than your best effort. This would 
make for a well rounded, wise person, capable of true competition with himself. 

On Behalf Of Worship 

By Stan Hickman 

This Monday morning I awoke at 6:30 
to get ready for the worship I'd be giv- 
ing at 7:30. It's hard to wake up so ear- 
ly. Last year when I gave worships usual- 
ly twenty to thirty guys would show up. 
This Monday morning there were eighty- 
one pahs of bleary eyes staring at me. 
Half of them looked asleep, the other 
half were asleep. There were a few "odd- 
ball" morning people who looked bright 
and cheerful, but they don't count. 

The subjea of my worship was choice. 
I quoted the first part of Joshua 24:15, 
"But if serving the Lord seems 
undesirable to you, then choose for 
yourselves this day when you will serve. 
. ." (I also read Frov. 1:28-33). I went 
on to say that being in a system that has 
so many rules can fool us mto thinking 
we have no choices. But we do have 
choices. As I said, "After hearing Dr. 
Sahly's presentation and the Deans' 'oh 
so brier explanation of the rules, you all 
made the decision to stay anyway. This 
morning you chose to give up sleep, 
breakfast, etc. to attend this worship and 
now you can choose whether to listen or 
tune out. To remind you that you really 
do have choices I'm going to offer you 
one. Those who really want to worship 
at this time of the morning please raise 
your hands." Twelve hands went up. 
"O.K., if you guys would please stay I'm 
going to give a short prayer and the rest 
of you will be dismissed." Seventy-three 
guys walked out smiling because a lunatic 
R. A. had just given them thek morning 
blessing (i.e. worship credit) in under 
three minutes. Twelve remained and 
heard the promise given in Proverbs 
2:1-11, that says the Lord will give 
knowledge, wisdom and understanding to 


I heard later that a couple of guys 
thought I was trying to lay a "guilt trip" 
on them. Not at all. The point is, we 
make decisions constantly. We choose 

was just a demonstration of what we do 
in our minds. Instead of seventy-three 
men sitting there mentally tuning worship 
out, they could actually physically walk 

When you follow the rules and attend 
worship, a choice has been made. WTien 
you Usten or tune out, a choice has been 
made. You alone choose your life as an 
adult; no one does it for you. If you 
choose to leave Southern CoUege you can 
go. If you choose to foUow or break the 
rules, you can do so. Yes, there are con- 
sequences to every action, but those are 
considered as you choose what you want. 
You determine your own life, your own 

Here at S. C. this year, a very specific 
program is being offered. You can choose 
to find value in it and use it as an oppor- 
tunity to grow closer to your God. Or you 
could cruise through it all, mind in 
neutral, gouig through the motions, grip- 
ing all the while about being forced to do 
this and that and having no choice about 
it all. 

I don't like getting up at 6:30 m the. 
morning (I don't hke getting up before 
lunch actually). I don't like having to stay 
up every night until midnight taking 
roomcheck. I don't Uke having to attend 
two chapels and five worships a week. 
But, I have chosen this job and this 
school for good reasons, reasons that are 
greater to me than the hiconveniences in- 
volved and so I'm choosmg to get the 
most value from all of it that I can. I hope 
you choose to look for and get the value 
out of it too.

English Language 
Schools Celebrate 

College Survival 

Washington, D.C, — English Language 
ISchools celebrate their 20th anniversary 
September, all made possible by 
iMaurice and Dorothy Bascom, now in 
I Church Ministries and Home Study In- 
|ternational at the General Conference. 

Called to evangelize Japan in 1964, 
I they found no one interested in hearing 
J about their Friend Jesus but eager to 
Jenhace their business trade in other coun- 

Ls by learning to speak English. Despite 
I'lheir hesitancy to teach English, the 
pBascoms invested their own savings of 
I'Sl.OOO to set up a laboratory, secure 

■ books and other materials they felt 
I necessary. Dottie even prepared a manual 

1 vowel pronunciation for the Asian 
I tongue. 

Using the three-story center built by se- 

ond quarter, 1957, 13th Sabbath 

I Overflow Offerings, the Bascoms had an 

I ideal location near government offices 

I and the subway station. However, only 

17 answered their first media advertising 

the subway system and 

■ newspajjers. 

Enrollment continued to mount 
though, during that first year until it 
reached 42. Jim and Ann Fisher, their 
former students at Lodi Academy who 
were studying at Pacific Union College, 
joined them as teachers. By the end of 
another year, 250 were studying not on- 
ly English, but about ten percent were 
also staying for English Bible classes. 

By 1970 a branch school was begun in 
Korea and other sections of Japan. 
Bascoms returned to the University of 
Nebraska for Maurice to complete work 
on a doctorate in school administration 
for this new way in which he was dress- 
ing up the old message. 

By 1973 there were eight schools, more 
than 100 student missionaries, and 3.500 
students. By 1978 more than 7,000 peo- 
ple were attending a Seveth-day Adven- 
tist Language School, and 160 Student 
Missionaries were "employed" annually. 
Because Indonesia's educational re- 
quirements now call for teachers to have 
a master's degree or at least two years' 
experience, only nationals are keeping the 
schools open there.

an education. Although the first few weeks are busy times for all, the classes and 
assignments soon run together and discouragement sets in. Although these times are 
sometimes unavoidable, it's severity can be lessened by keeping oneself interested 
in various activities. In the next few lines, I will attempt to give the reader a few 
gems of collegiate wisdom to help keep the blues away. 

Hobbies have long been a popular pasttime and for good reason. Relaxing, 
structive, and enriching, a hobby can take up as much or as little time as the hob' 
byists desires. One particularly exciting field is collecting. While collecting stamps, 
books, or baseball cards is gratifying, try something a little different. For instance, 
a neighbor of mine, Doug Center, collects paintings done on black velvet. To date, 
he has 6 of Elvis, 3 of Waylon, and 33 of white stallions in various poses. Another 
one is collecting bones from the vege-meat. Although I haven't seen anyone do this. 
I feel it would be interesting. 

For those on the active and artistic side, a world of activities awaits you. For the 
sports-oriented, try playing handball with your feet. 

If the reader is creative, countless options abound. Try building a calculator out 
of used Cap'n Crunch toys, or carving world leaders out of styrofoam cups. 

Whether it's budding sbt-inch replicas of the Statue of Liberty out of pencil shav- 
ings or collecting all twenty portraits of General Conference officials on Worthington 
Food Labeb, remember to get involved and don't be discouraged.

By Scoil Kinsey 

I was lalking to a friend of mine today and this editorial idea is his. He didn't 
think he would have the time, so I decided to help him. My apologies, Randy, If 
the words are not yours. The meaning, I hope, is... 

Have you ever wondered how the classrooms you attend class in stay clean? Do 
you ever think about the amount of trash on campus (or the lack thereoQ? How about 
[he flower beds; who waters, weeds and watches them? Have you ever noticed that 
V the time you eat your next meal, the PA system works so 
rails gel painted, the telephones work (usually), you have 
ime), you have a sports program to participate in, or that 
pveted parking spot has a welt-deserved ticket? 
: thoughts before, maybe you need to think about 

a silent group of people on this c 
yet. "Unsung Heroes." They ma 
Let me explain... 

3 your class, you make y 

buy a meal in the cafeteria, Campus Kitchen, or K.R.'s 
z to wait on you, and help you charge your food. Whenever 

1 the library, someone is there to attend to your needs. If 
s you want, each building on campus has a host of people seeing that 
n looks good for the next day. People take care of your finances, keep 

you informed through several media devices, i.e., WSMC 90.5, the "Chatter", the 
"Southern Accent", plus numerous announcements and people even keep track of 
your birthdays. Whether you realize it or not. these "heroes" make your life much 
simpler. Imagine this scenario if you can,.. 

You wake up late, decide to take a quick shower and then try for your 8:00 a.m. 
class. You discover that the boiler in the basement is broken and you are not going 
to get any hot water because no one works for engineering anymore. Fine, you say. 
After a mad dash for the cafeteria, you find that several of the workers didn't feel 
3 work early, so no one made any breakfast. Strike two. Heading on 
r way from Talge HaL to the music building. The grass 
is very tall, and you ruin your new pair of suede shoes. As you find your desk in 
Brock HaU 347, you notice that the chalkboard is filled with notes from yesterday's 
class, the trash can is overflowing, your desk is all marked up with pencil marks and 
there are several wadded up paper balls under your desk. Your teacher has a movie 
planned for your class, but no one from Instructional Media comes to deliver a pro- 
jector. You finally leave your class and head for the library. And throughout the 
day you keep finding the same things happening. No one is taking care of the cam- 
pus and you find that you have to do everything for yourself. Your life at college 
becomes a drag because no one is there to help you. 

Now I realize that this is very extreme, but I want to stress this point. If it weren't 
for the student and staff labor in the many departments, helping you make it through 
your day, everything would be so much harder. Nothing would get fixed, cleaned 
or run. And school would be a pain. 

I write this article today, realizing thai many of you could care less about the peo- 
ple who make this campus run. But I urge you to give a "thank you" once in a while, 
or let someone know that they've helped you. Remember, without those "Unsung 
Heroes", this school would not be able to continue. 

How to Win Grades and Influence 

1 . Bring the teacher newspaper clippings dealing with his subject. Demonstrate fiery 
interest and remember timely items to mention to him. If you can't find clippings 
dealing with his subject, bring in any clippings at random. He thinks everything deals 
with his subject. 

2. Look alert. Take notes eagerly. If you look at your watch, don't stare unbeliev- 
ingly and shake it. 

3. Nod frequently and murmur, "How true!" To you, this seems exaggerated. To I 

4. Sit in front, near him. (Applies only if you intend to stay awake). If you're _ 
ing to all the trouble of making a good impression, you might as well let him know j 
who you are, especially in a large class.

The Blood Assurance van was in front 
of Wright Hall, September 9 and 10, 
from 10:00 a.m. to 6:p.m. Giving blood 
helps the community and our school. 
Says Grady Lane, group services coor- 
dinator ' 'we appreciate all the suppon we 
get from all the students and faculty 
down there (Southern College). We have 
always had a real good relationship and 
we're looking forward to pulling off 

The thought of giving blood may send 
chills up many student's spines, but the 
thought of saving a life should outweight 
the fear of it aU. Added to the fact that 
you are saving lives, you also get 
refreshments, 32-teeth grins from cute 
nurses, and Blood Assurance t-shirls. 

Giving blood not only makes you feel 
good about saving a life, but it also gives 
yoM coverage in case of an accident in 
which you need blood. So, the next time 
you see the Blood Assurance van, don't 
thmk of the pain and horror you have 
always heard about, but instead think of 
all the fun, food and relaxation you will 
get while laying there saving a life.

Matthews to Speak 

Karol Rich in Concert 

By Charlene Spencer 

Musical minister and vocal soloist Karol Rich will perform a sacred concert at the 
CoUegedale Church on September 12 at 8:00 p.m. 

Rich has performed throughout the United States over the past four years. She 
utilizes a wide range of music that includes old hymn favorites, classical and light 
contemporary selections. 

"My greatest desire," Rich states, "is to present Christ first, offering encourage- 
ment for daily living as we grow in His love." Her three recordings include More 
Than Life, Sweet Devotion, and Safe and Warm. 

Karol Rich's concert is the first in a series of sacred concerts sponsored by Southern 
College. The College Band will perform October 3, and Marshall Kelly will give a 
sacred concert on November 7. All the performances will be on Friday evenings at 
8:00 in the Collegedale Church. 

Hefferlin to Present Research 

Dr. Hefferlin will also present this 
seminar at California State University in 
San Francisco on Friday, September 12. 
The research to be discussed in both cases 
represents work done together with 
several SC students including Gary Bur- 
dick, Ken Priddy, and Orvitle Bignall (aU 
Physics graduates). Presently, Earl Cor- 
nell, Vincent Tan, Emil Dameff, Lizzie 
Harper, and Darwin Clark are par- 
ticipating in the research. 

By Chris McKee 
Twice a school year Southern College 
sets aside a week for spritual emphasis, 
widely known as "Week of Prayer". This 
is a time in which students can come 
together for spiritual refreshment. This 
coming Monday marks the beginning of 
Fall Week of Prayer, 1986. During this 
week there will not be any worships held 
in the dorms. This means that students 
must fulfill ail of their five worship re- 
'n the church. Services usually 

although, some teachers will make 
allowances for this special week. 

In order to make these meetings truly 
out of the ordinary, the school brings in 
top Adventist speakers from outside the 
Collegdale area who can provide new and 
refreshing ideas. This year's speaker, Dan 
Matthews, has been Executive Director 
and speaker for Faith For Today televi- 
sion since May 1 , 1980. Matthews came 
to the Adventist Media Center from the 
Potomac Conference where he had first 
served as Ministerial Director and later 
as Executive Secretary. 

The Executive Director gives general 
leadership to all phases of the Faith For 
Today ministry. He is Executive Pro- 

ducer for film and video projects, in- 
cluding the new television series, "Chris- 
tian Lifestyle Magazine." Matthews also 
functions as Executive Editor of the print 
magazine for "Christian Lifestyle 
Magazine," and provides direction for 
marketing and other related activities in 
the organization. 

Matthews' media experience derives 
from public relations and communication 
leadership in the Oregon Conference. In 
addition he produced radio and television 

pastoral/evangelistic assignments. 

Ministerial opportunities in the Nor- 
thwest and East included public 
evangelism, Bible study seminars, camp- 
meeting classes and devotional series em- 
phasizing Christian communications and 
spiritual gifts. He has conducted seminars 
on pastoral care. Christian leadership and 
Biblical preaching. 

Matthews holds a Masters Degree from 
Andrews University. He Is married to the 
former Elizabeth Neufeld, The Matthews 
have three grown sons. 

We hope that you, as a student body 
will gain a great spiritual blessing as Elder 
Matthews speaks to each and every one 
of our hearts.

Dr. William Richards, known affec-

Richards seemed quite comfortable in his

Issues & Answers 


By Ron Qua/ley 

I came to Southern College six years ago, in 1980, fresh from an academy 
background in deanlng. And because of that background, I did some things that first 
year thai were "academyish" in nature. For instance, one Friday night at vespers, 
I took a student oui from under the balcony and told him nicely, yet firmly, that 
if he wanted to talk to please go outside. I, to this day, never felt good about the 
mechanics of having to do that act, and never did it again, until six years later, last 
Friday night al vespers. And 1 will probably never do it again (or at least for another 
six years). I'm not, however, apologizing to that student, or the first one, for trying 
to obtain some degree of reverence in the house of God for those who might have 
come to worship. 

There are some major physical problems in the church (other than our mouths) 
like the low ceiling that can make a low whisper sound like Luciano Pavarotti. So 
we can put the blame there if we like, but the problem still comes back to us. How 
better can we witness than by example? Isn't that what Jesus did in the short time 
He was on this earth? A lot of students have come to me and expressed their disgust 
at the irreverence in the church, yet Ihey sit in the back and TALK about how noisy 

We don't spend much time in HIS house during the week compared to the time 
we eat, sleep, drink?, go to classes, socialize, etc. Is God's asking for reverence too 
much? I don't think so. "God has commanded nothing that is unessential, and there 
is no other way to manifesting reverence so pleasing to HIM as by obedience to that 
which He has spoken." Councils to Parents, Teachers, and Students, pg. 111. 

Some of you who are leaders may have to set the example. Some of you who have 
come to Southern for the "unique Adventist advantage" may have to witness to your 
friends who haven't come for that reason. Two deans cannot even begin to control 
the back, nor am I sure they should even try. We need your help. 

For me, I have solved the problem. I come over early, stand in the back and greet 
the students as they come in, then I either leave, or I stand in the foyer in the quietness

Time Out 

This Week in Softball 

By Robbie Shanko 

Butler 11, Beers 8 Faculty 6, Drab 7 

The grass was a little long and still west 

look the lead and held on. Butler picked 
two injured players. Jav McElrov who 
was 4 for 4 (Bob Jimenez runs for 
McElroy because of a broken foot) and 
Jimmy Crone as scorekeeper, who has a 
broken arm. David Bante, playing center 
for Beers, was also 4 for 4. Iowa made 
a force out al home for Butler, and can 
usually run out his full swing bunis. 
Home runs of the evening include Myron 
Mixon's ihree-run homer, David Butler's 
ihree-run homer and a grand-slam homer 
for Paul Boone. 

-► Reid 17, Boyd 15 

Boyd's team did their best to hold off 
Reid's sluggers. Melanie Boyd and Joy 
Richards both hit home runs, trying unn- 
successfuUy to put Boyd's team on top. 
Kim Robertson keyed the victor for Reid 
with her hitting as well as precision 
center-fielding. Rumor has it that Don- 
na Denton hit a homer for Reid. 

Faculty 1, Beers 5 

Maynard Wheeler led the charge with 
a three RBI home run as Beers beat the 
faculty five to one. It was a game mark- 
ed with brilliani defensive plays by Mr. 
Smith and Steve Vogel. 

What's wrong with the faculty team? 
Well, that's what the faculty want to 
know! They have the same all-siar profs 
along with Ken Rogers, the new Col- 
legedale chaplain. Maybe they're just get- 
ting a little old and need to stick with 
chalk and erasers instead of bats and 
balls. Anyway two rookie teams, Drab 
and Beers, have both defeated the facul- 
ty, leaving them with for 2. 

Moody 16, Pieper 15 

Moody's team led off the game with six 
runs in the first inning and did not relin- 
quish their lead, finishing the game with 
a 16 to 15 win over Pieper, Sunday, 
September 7. Moody's team was short a 
catcher, a second basemen and a rover, 
but managed to make outfield catches 
and even double plays. The score kept 
moving up as both teams were baiting 
well with place hits. Jim Huenergardt, 
who just got his fool out of a cast, was 
making some hard hits into left field. Us- 
ing the speed of Larry Cowen to do the 
running for him. In the top of the

Fulbrighi eased to victory Sunday night 
in a game that featured solid basehitting 
from Rody Hosteter, Tim Chism, and 
Todd Wilkens. Chism and Wilkens both 
added a touch of power with one homer 
each. Consistency from the Fulbright 
sticks, coupled with Dickerhoff's error 
prone outfield, made this one a laugher.

Armchair Athletes 

By Robby Shanko 

Once believed to be a dying breed, 
armchair athletes are increasing in the 
Talge Hall television room. 

Since the NFL season has begun, the 
men in the dorm have been putting off 
their history and anatomy to cheer their 
teams on. Oh sure, some do bring their 
books down and turn to the assigned 
chapter only to become glued to the 
modern day gladiators in the television 
screen. Occasonally after a play or dur- 
ing a BuQ Light 

themselves feel better. 

These armchair athletes are of all 
types, from those who do kick around the 

old I 


r put a foot on the grid ii 


down to cheer their team on, but to coach 
them on as well. Each one knows of a 
better play that should have been used, 
or what a foolish head coach this team 
or that team has. And they all make it 
known so everyone can loudly hear them. 
Those who don't bring their studies 

Stand" to stuff themselves with burritos, 
shakes, popcorn, dougnuts and a variety 
of juices. Then they lounge around and 
feed themselves as they make sly cuts 
about teams they dislike and their friends 
who like those teams. 

You can find these armchair athletes 
in the television room almost every night 
and always on Sunday. They can tell you 
the stats on any player, who makes the 
most money, and who eats what. But 
don't try to ask them any questions dur- 
ing the game, you won't g^ 
Save it till half time.

Care Corner 




I've had several requests- 

Lawn Concerts 


What happened last weekend? For those of you who 
are now too bhtzed to remember that far back, it was 
CARE'S Collegiate Commitment weekend. The object of 
this presentation was to alert the student body to the pro- 
grams offered by CARE, and to give everyone the op- 
portunity to join any club or program that interests them. 

As you'll remember, Collegiate Commitment weekend 
began with a Sabbath School designed to introduce each 
of the thirty CARE programs through a skit, "sUde", 
weather report, etc. God made a cameo appearance, en- 

couraging Mike Fulbright to get involved despite his am- 
bitious class load of four hours. The dramatic blood 
donation slogan of "That life you save may be your own" 
had over 500 college students simply begging to join the 

The main statement behind these activities was this, "In 
CARE you'll have fun, lots of fun! You just won't beheve 
what a mind-boggling amount of fun you'll have. Real- 
ly." A heavy claim, but, the Lawn Concert made for a 
pret ty conv incing example. 

What about those of you who didn't sign up for any 
CARE program Sabbath? You may have decided to think 
about your choices, talk to your friends, and visit the 
CARE office sometime later. Can you still join a club? 
Forget it. Tough. You are hopelessly locked into a bor- 
ing school year. Only kidding. Of course you can siill 
join. Grab your Garfield pencil and run up to the CARE 
office now. The CARE officers have no desire to cheat 
you out of the fun you'll have in a CARE program just 
because your blue card wasn't fiUed out Sabbath 
morning. __ 

That afternoon S.C.'s annual Lawn Concert, spon- 
sored by CARE, featured impressive student talent along 
with professional musicians Bill Young and Duane 
Hamilton. Flawless weather and inspired performances 
made for a great Sabbath.

Dear Readers, 

Hey, I didn't really mean it when I said you were allowed to complain about the I 
first paragraph of last week's column! It seems that whenever I try to be funny, i | 
sUck my foot in my mouth. I humbly apologize if 1 appeared to be nasty to the other 
complaint column, ''Say, Grace" or to it's columnist. It was unintentional. 

Dear Lori, 

I have heard that it costs over S700 per year for the two dorms to send copies of | 
weekend leave requests home to our parents. Is this necessary since our pg 
already signed their permission for our leaving beforehand? 

Dear Irked, 

Weekend leave requests have three copies. One is given to the student, one is kept I 

ir daughter is in the dorm-informing them that the student was off campus for 
the weekend. The parents who do not care to know where their offspring are 
simply discard the notice. 

This service should reach that $700 figure only if the maximum amount of studentsl 
leave for the weekend, each weekend of the two semester year. The dorms considerl 
100 students per dorni to be this maximum number (for instance, only 64 girls lefii 
thefirst weekend of school, so the expenditure would not be as high for that week). f 
(Of course that doesn't include the men's dormitory weekend leaves.) The cards ; 
not sent for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, nor are they sent when the s 
dent is going home for the weekend. 
The postage for the post cards is paid for through the Student Services budget, j

Is it possible for the school to let the students In on future developments before I

Week Of Spiritual Emphasis 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/September 18, 1986 

Relationships and Such 

By Brett Hadley 

This week I have nothing particularly inspirational 
gods did not reach down from on high and strike m 
instead, 1 would like to share with you something that happened to me recentl> 

Just the other night a good friend and I, I say a good friend not to denote th; 
I have any bad friends but just to emphasize this particular person is of special in 
poriance to me, were talking about relationships over cappucino and cheesecaki 

As we were discussing the many different aspects of multi-dimensional relation- 
ships 1 was analyzing the progressiveness that a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship has. 
There seems to be certain steps of progression (hat a developing relationship follows. 

First of all there is the initial eye contact made between two individuals. It car 
happen anytime, anywhere and to anybody. For instance, Mr. Average collegi 
dent, who Is on his way to class, busy with thoughts of scholastic endeavors, is 
denly struck down by a freshman vision of beauty. He sees not in his eyes a typical 
underclassman, but a walking goddess of love. He is hooked and he will not rest 
easy until he has formally made her acquaintance. So he sets his endeavors to quench 
the uncontrollable desire he has lo meet this person. The next step is a hard one 
- the Initial asking out for the first date. It takes a lot for a guy to pick up the phone was 
lo talk lo a strange girl for the first lime. And often ihe conversation is a little the 
awkward, but surmounting the obstacles of a first time introduction, a date Is made 
and excitement reaches an all time new high. 

Actually going out on this date can be a challenging and eye-opening experience. 
Now, when you go out with someone for the first time, it usually feels a little strange 
because you don't really know each other. So you spend most of the time asking 
questions and getting to know each other better. If it's a good date, the more you 
learn, the more you like about thai person, and it sparks enthusiasm to learn even 
more about them. If it's a bad date, you go dutch and ask her for gas money. 

We'll pretend it was a good date and just merely being with the person makes you 
want to move progressively onward lo bigger and better experiences wilh them. And 
it turns out that all the time you spend with the person just motivates you to spend 
even more time wilh them. You have an unquenchable desire to be with them and 
learn more about ihem. Now, you don't, and shouldn't, allow this passion to become 
all enveloping, to the point that you exclude other activities and interests of your 
life, such as scholastic achievements and sports, or whatever It is that trips your trig- 
ger. Instead you want this person to be involved In those things, become a part of

' 1 for the inauguration. "It gives the board a chance to of-

Federal Grant for TLC 
Runs Out 

By Janelle Burton 

Federal grant money for the Teaching 
Learning Center will be cut off 
September 30. The TLC. located in the 
Southern College Student Center, offers 
free tutoring to all SC students. 

The funds were acquired under a Title 
III grant, which is a non-renewable 
federal grant for higher education institu- 
. The grant originally appropriated 

$417,000 for the TLC and a 



Development ; 

The TLC program was especially 
developed for first time students. These 
are students whose parents did not attend 
college. The program is designed to give 
these students a place to come for help. 

The grant has run for four years, 
started in 1982 by Richard Reiner, former 
SC business manager. Every year 
Southern was lo pick up more of the ex- 
penses, eventually paying for the entire 
program. As of now SC pays for the stu- 
dent tutor salaries, but beginning 
September 30 ii will have to pay for non- 
student employees, supplies, and 
maintenance expenses. This all totals to 
around 543,000 per school year. 

Grant money has already paid for eight 

computers and software for the TLC, 

three of which are located in the cur- 

ilum lab in McKee Library. It has also

Revenge of the R.A.'s 

By Scan Hickman 

Why would anyone want to be an R.A.? An honest "Want Ad" looking for an 
R.A. candidate might read something like this: We're looking for a few good men 
(good and stupid) who want a real chaLenge at low pay, with long hours that go 
late into the night, who like janitorial grunt labor, weekend work; someone who 
relishes dirty looks, muttered insults, audible snyde remarks and doors slammed loudly 
behind them. If you enjoy long conversations with deans and meeting lots of strange 
people (students) in unusual situations (in trouble), this job is for you. 

Fifty to seventy men apply yearly for the 12 R.A. positions. Why? Menial illness 
is a distinct possibility. An average day in the life of an R.A. is filled with many 
shon but memorable moments. During registration one R.A. was woken up at 2:00, 
3:30 and 5:00 in the morning to open doors for some gentlemen who couldn't wait 
until morning for assistance. It is impossible to meet anyone on time, because on 
your way out of the dorm, you get stopped to answer questions, help someone find 
the dean or to open a door for someone who chronically loses keys. 

One day in the life of an R.A. may go something like this: 6:30 a.m. - get up. 
7:30 a.m. - give worship. 8:00 a.m. - go to classes like a normal student. 12 noon 
- eat lunch and socialize like a normal student. 2:00 p.m. - vacuum hall, take out 
trash and clean water fountain. 3:00 p.m. - begin a very long nap (because of a friend 
or person on your hall who needed to talk late last night). 7:00 p.m. - hand out wor- 
ship cards and pick them up. 7:30 until 10:00 p.m. - on duty with the deans. 11:00 
p.m. - take nightcheck. 1 1:40 p.m. - take second check. 12 midnight - begin study- 
ing. By Friday, the R.A.'s are ready to crash. Then comes weekend duties - Friday, 
Saturday and Sunday night check. Sabbath church check, possibly a Sabbath shift 
at the desk or passing out vesper cards on Friday or Saturday night. Sabbath becomes 
very special to an R.A. Rest is wonderful. 

When we are in our rooms on duty, our doors remain open so that the guys know 
we arc available. Available for what, no one knows. The R.A. meeting raises a lot 
of curiosity. The group is often seen laughing hysterically. Yes, we are permitted to 
smile and even laugh. We begin each meeting with an R.A. reading a selected scrip- 
ture, giving a short talk and then prayer. Then the deans inform us of upcoming 
duties, special situations, etc. Then, each in turn, the R.A.'s have an opportunity 
to ask questions or talk about any problem situations on their halls. The guys yuck 
it up a lot. It's a great way to relieve tension and just feel good. When things go 
rough with a friend or one has a problem on 
a group of guys who are sharing 

As an R.A. I've discovered a couple of things I didn't know. The deans really car 
about the guys in this dorm. They constantly encourage us to be available and i 
listen and be helpful, especially for those who are having troubles - troubles sue 
as homesickness, depression from a realization of how tough college can be, fromi 
being a somebody in high school to being an unknown in college. Other probler 
such as breaking up with a girifriend, troubles at home, troubles with a roommaieH 
- the list is as long and as varied as there are individuals in this dorm. 

I've learned that each R.A. copes with the stress of the job in a different v, 
every R.A. I know hates to tell anyone anything. It's very difficult to confront p 
pie over music, excessive loudness in the halls, televisions, improper posters, etc. 
so much easier to want to just be everybody's friend so everybody will like us. I 
the job doesn't allow us to choose that. 

No one ever likes to be told what to do, nomaner how nicely it's put. As an R 
you expect flack, but it makes it no easier to take. Each negative reaction hits ■_ 
in the stomach and it hurts. Some R.A.'s tend to react by putting up a front andB 
they get in a gruff and author its true manner. Some cope by complaining t 
other R.A.'s about what's happening to them. Some cope by giving up and letting! 
everything slide (which makes another R.A. have to take up their slack and deal w 
two times the troubles). 

Before I became an R.A., I stereotyped them. That wasn't intelligent on my pan! 
Each one is a very different individual, with his own needs, desires and ways of copi 
ing with a good but often difficult job. The men in the dorm rarely see that R./ 
who stands at their door hesitant to knock because he doesn't want to tell a frien( 
he has to take his speakers. The students don't see the anguished looks on the 
faces when a friend of theirs is in serious trouble and he may face suspension or wo) 
Students rarely realize that an R.A. is a person too, who huns and suffers. The jotl 
isn't easy, especially when you really care about people. Next time you get in a situ 
tion with an R.A., try and remember that he may be feeling as uncomfortable 
you. Just like you, he wishes that the situation wasn't necessary. There is no amou 
of money that can make up for those rejections, for those nasty looks, those mi 
tered insults and those slammed doors. Believe it or not, your R.A. wants to be 
friend and have a good relationship with you. If you give him half a chance (eveil 
telling him your fnistrations) you'll probably discover he's a lot like you and r 
quite so bad after all. 


and Grace 

resembles a graduation. Both use specific 
costumes and regalia. Both are celebra- 
tions: a graduation celebrates the ending 
of an era; an inauguration the beginning. 
A corporate entity (the college) confers 
degrees upon graduates; the same entity 
inaugurates a president. Both celebra- 
tions are designed to make statements 
about the philosophy and beliefs of the 
college. But there seems to me to be an 
understandable difference between the 
two: we are conditioned to graduations 
because they are commonplace in our ex- 
perience, but we have no reference point 
by which lo relate to inauguration. 

Yet we will, in a few days, be center 
stage in the greater Chattanooga com- 
munity because of our celebration. And 
there is just cause to celebrate. Southern 
CoLege is only five years away from 


beginning its second century, and js in 
good health. While many smaU, Uberal 
arts colleges have folded and gone into 
quiet obscurity. Southern is still here. It 
is well respected in the general academic 
community, in its immediate environs 
and by it's constituents. Proof of this is 
apparent in the number of academic, 
biisiness and other leadership people who 
will be here specifically for this 

The official message of the inaugura- 
tion, it seems to me, is that this college 
has at least two large assets going for it: 
committment and class. Frankly. I'm 
glad Chick Fleming and his committee 
arc promoting both. 

But I also see a need for the evidence 
of the Christian virtue of grace. Let me 
suggest at least one spin-off to the con- 
cept of grace-that of waciousness. What 

a powerful statement of our belief in 
Christian relationships will be made if all 
of us who parlicipate-students, staff, 
faculty, administrators and board 
members will exhibit altitudes of 
graciousness. It may not be easy for this 
virtue to shine through the pomp and 
ceremony that are legitimate aspects of 
an inaugural celebration. But if grace, 
and sepcifically graciousness, is honestly 
obvious, then the official statement of 
Christian committment will have a basis 
on which it can be practiced. 

Graciousness is as much a part of this 
college's heritage as is our belief in the 
Adventist lifestyle. Perhaps this inaugural 
celebration will focus not only on our 
beautiful surroundings, our heritage of 
academic strength and spiritual committ- 
ment, but also on the practice of 
Southern Christian graciousness. If so, 
we will all be stronger for it.

The President's Lecture 
\Series: A Closer Look 

By Kev Gepford 

The publicized inauguration of 

I Southern College's President, Donald R. 

ISahly, wilJ be accompanied the same 

I week by another high event on campus, 

September 18, 1986/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 

I dent's Lecture Series, the distinguished 
"sculptor Alan Collins will be presenting 
sculpture demonstrations portraying 
J the condition of man on the 25th and the 
|26th of September. 

Alan Collins serves as a professor of 
t Loma Linda University, California, 
the La Sierra Campus. His 
background and works are international 
pn scope, having been bom in Britain and 
been commissioned to do 
us works of art for both churches 
■and public buildings on either sides of the 

■ Atlantic Ocean. Among the most notable 
I of his handiworks is the memorial to the 
I late President Kennedy at Runnymede, 

■ England, which he created for the Ken- 
Inedy Memorial Trust. Perhaps a bit 
I closer to Adventist interests, however, is 

: larger-than-life group, "The Good 
I Samaritan," located near the Loma Lin- 
I da University Medical Center, and a large 
I abstract sculpture on the campus of An- 
Idrews University, Michigan. 

As a guest speaker on the Southern 
■College Campus, Professor Collins will 
Itransform 100-pound chunks of model- 
ling clay into large heads, illustrating the 
I stages of life and the emotions of living. 
iHis sculpture demonstrations have been 
penjoyed by audiences from coast to coast 
and in Canada and Hawaii as well. He 
assisted by Dr. Dorothy Minchin-Comm, 

■ professor of English at Loma Linda 

University (La Sierra Campus) in ad- 
dressing mankind as a unique being 
among all created species. Dr. Minchin- 
Comm has compiled a background of 
music and narrative literature to highlight 
the theme of the two programs they will 
be presenting at the Collegedale Seventh- 
day Adventist Church. On Thursday, 
September 25, they will present the first 
of their programs for chapel at 10:30 
a.m., entitled "The Passions of Man." 
Collins depicts the six most basic passions 
which characterize human existance: fear 
anger, pride, greed and lust,' mirth, and 
joy and contentment using two large 
heads of modeling clay, one male and one 

The program to be given on Friday 
evening at 8 p.m., "The Ages of Man," 
commences with a clay model of a head 
of a newborn baby on which Collins 
traces the changes of a lifetime through 
the stages of an infant, child, young 
lover, soldier, mature adult, to an old 
man, with an epilogue of immortality ac- 
companied by music and readings. 

Although the visiting professors Col- 
lins and Minchin-Comm have a busy lec- 
ture tour planned, with visits scheduled 
for Oakwood College and Andrews 
University, they will be present on our 
campus for the entire week of September 
22-26, They would welcome any students 
who want to talk to them or any teacher 
interested in inviting them to address a 
class. To make the most of the time that 
these guests will be on campus, anyone 
may make an appointment to see them 
through the secretary of the Humanities 
Division at Brock Hall.

Dear Lori, 

What's the deal with KR's Place having such a limited menu? I cannot hve without 
my bagels and cream cheese, or my chips and cheese! 

•Hungry in the Student Center 

Dear Hungry, 

I know what you mean about missing your bagels, I've had a taste for them too. 
Fortunately, we won't be kept waiting much longer. According to the lady who runs 
KR's Place, Karen Eckright. the items missing on the menu are on their way. The 
"latecomers" have been ordered and should be ready to pop inti " 
next week (she hopes!). 

Dear Lori, 

Why do so many students choose to ride the elevator in the music building when 
they are perfectly capable of walking the stairs? ! know that the elevator is appropriate 
for those who are physically restrained or for people carrying heavy loads, yet many 
students opt for the easy way up simply because they are lazy. If more students would 
be willing to use the stairs, they would derive cardio/vascular benefit as well as sav- 
ing the school more watts per $()uare perEon, or something like that.

"Gross, what are those sounds they're 
making? Is somebody dying?" " What 
do you wanna look Hke that for?" " Oh 
sick, you're dripping with sweat." " It's 
all ego." These are just a few of the many 
sophisticated comments people make 
about weightlifting. Weightlifting is the 
most misunderstood and maligned of all 

Weightlifting is an excellent exercise 
thai is optimal for shaping the body and 
losing fat. Weightlifting can be done by 
any person, male or female, with any 
shape, at any weight. Weightlifting 
teaches discipline as well as providing a 
physical outlet for emotional frustrations. 
These are just a few of the endless reasons 
why you should be weightlifting. 

Most everyone would like to aher the 
shape of their body. For those without 
the money for expensive medical surgery, 
weightlifting and diet is the only complete 
answer. By controlling calorie intake and 
selecting a body-building program that 
will work the areas you want firmed the 
most, you can grow, harden and re-define 
the shape of your body. 

Fitness is from the whole body, you 
cannot isolate a body part to lose fat 
from. But you can isolate a body part in 
weightlifting and make it grow, and 
growth of muscle means firmness and 
definition. Also muscle tissue burns lots 
of calories all day long, and so if you 
have lots of muscle you can eat lots of 
food and still lose fat! 

Anybody can weighllifi and everyone 
can make gains in their strength and 
muscularity. Women tend to grow mus- 
cle faster than men in the first three 
months of working out. so they see 
i quickly. When you have never 
touched weights, your growth rate is 
many times faster than an already ex- 
perienced and big weightlifter. You get 
and see results quickly, which encourages 
you to keep at the lifting and keep at the

Weightlifting releases stress. When you 
pump iron it feels much better than pun- 
ching faces. Every day, frustrating things 
happen, every day we have to think and 
study. In the weight room, you don't 
think about anything: just bags and 
plates, sets and "reps" (ever heard the 
term musclehead?). At the end of a 
workout, your body is exhausted but 
your brain is refreshed and you feel so, 
so relaxed. 

If you want aerobic exercise, then cir- 
cuit weight training, jumping from exer- 
cise to exercise with little or no rest. You 
increase aerobic capacity and you build 
muscular endurance and size. Whatever 
you need to do, weightlifting can help 
you do it. With weightlifting you learn 
how important nutrition is because when 
you don't eat right, your muscles don't 
heal and you don't grow. You learn to 
listen 10 your body. You learn that you 
can change your body and develop 
discipline. You gain confidence, and that 
can carry over to all aspects of your life.

CARE'S Target Evangelism 

By Tim Peters 

A target evangelism team from 
Southern College met with a local church 
group to distribute copy's of "Happiness 
Digest" to Chattanooga residents this 
past Sabbath afternoon. A van full of 
students, armed with these versions of 
"Steps to Christ", spent their Sabbath 
participating in this outreach program. 

What is "target evangelism"? It is 
CARE'S literature distribution program. 
Target evangelism has enjoyed much suc- 
cess in this area, for the distribution ef- 
forts of local churches and S. C. have 
caused over 600 people to enroll in mail- 
in Bible Studies. An impressive number. 
One that can grow even more. 

CARE invites everyone to get involv- 
ed in Sabbath afternoon target 
evangelism. It is a relaxed, fun way to get 
out and meet people while making a 
religious impact. One participant said, 
"It's no problem. You aren't asking peo- 
ple for anything. Most are more than 
willing to accept a book. ' ' The entire goal 
of target evangelism is to gel the literature 
in the hands of the people, not to demand 
immediate baptism. A polite, rela.\ed ap- 
proach is all that is required. 

Tired of spending your Sabbath after- 
noons asleep? Get a few friends together 
and give target evangelism a shot.

Thatcher Hall welcomes two new deans 
this year. Mrs. Sharon Engel and Mrs. 
Jeanette Bryson have become two new 
additions to the Thatcher Hall dean staff. 
The two associate deans will work with 
Dorothy Somers, who is currently the 
head dean at Thatcher Hall. 

Mrs. Bryson attended Pacific Union 
College in California where she received 
her B.S. degree in elementary education 
and religion. She earned her masters 
degree in education at San Diego State 

While visiting this summer from 
California, Mrs. Bryson was interviewed 
for the job of associate dean at Thatcher 
Hall. In California, she taught English at 
Orangewood Academy in Garden in San- 
ta Ana. Nine years ago however, she serv- 
ed as dean of women for Kingsway Col- 
lege in Ontario, Canada. 

Mrs. Bryson also spent time abroad 
with her late husband, George E. Bryson. 
The two lived for 12 years in West Africa 

where Mr. Bryson was a ministe 
mission president. Mrs. Bryson w„^ „„ 
adviser of community projects and public 

health programs. She also taught English 
and deaned, 

Mrs. Sharon Engel is a native i 
Nebraska, and it was there that she a.- , 
tended Union College. She has deaned | 
previously at Sunnydale Academy in 
Missouri and Ozark Academy in Arkan- 
sas. Most recently she worked at Garden I 
State Academy in Tranquility, New- 
Jersey as dean of women. 

Richard, Mrs. Engel's husband, does 
carpentry work. The couple have two 
children. Robin, 20, attends Rutgers 
University, and Richard, 17, is a student 
at the Collegedale Academy. 

Mrs. Engel expressed her feelings 
about coining to Southern College, "I , 
have found true Southern hospitality here j 
and feel right at home. The students a 
friendly and warm, and I am already e 
joying my work."

By Bob Kamieneski 

On Sunday, Sepi- 21, ai 7:00 a.m. the 
Southern College Physical Education 
Depanmeni, with the help of many of its 
physical education majors and CABL, 
conducted iis third annual triathalon. The 
event consisted of a half mile swim, a 
29.5 mile bike ride, and a 6.2 mile run. 
The weather and water conditions were 
ideal for the event and as every one 
gathered the excitement of the event fill- 
ed the air. 

The swimming ponion of the triaihaon 
began at Cohutta Springs Camp. The gun 
sounded to begin the event at approx- 
imately 7:40 a.m. Thirty contestants from 
Andrews University, Southern College, 
Collegedale Academy, Shenandoah 
Valley Academy, Georgia-Cumberland 
Academy, Mt. Pisgah Academy, and 
several local entrants dove into the water 
to begin the event. 

The first triathletes to leave the water 
were Todd Hunt (14:21), Brian Craig 
(14:24), MicheUe McCurdy (15:32). and 
Dave Nerness (15:59). Rob Shanko 
helped clear the water by picking up the 
rear with a time of 30:15, 

At this point, the transition between 
the swim to the bike look place. By now 
the temperature began warming up, as 
was the pace of the triathalon. During the 
cycling phase. 

ly exchanging places, but when this part 
of the triathalon ended, most of the top 
athletes were near the lead. Todd Hunt 
and Dave Wiedemann had captured the 
lead at this point with identical combin- 
ed swim and cycle times of 1:38.26. 
Following them were Todd Wilkens, 
Dave Nerness, and Brian Craig. 

The transition from cycling to running 
is one of the most difficult physical feats 
in any sport as was witnessed by the many 
spctator. The mid-day heat was beginn- 
ing to take its toll at this point as the 
triathaletes began to fight the pain of 
aching muscles and dehydration. 

When the triathalon came to its con- 
clusion, Dave Nerness had taken the vic- 
tory. It was a victory that saw Nerness 
break his own course record by over two 
minutes with a time of 2:21.1. Dave 
Weidemann placed second, Todd 
Wilkens third, Brian Craig fourth and 
Gerald Wilkens was fifth. The First place 
female finisher was Sherry Wright from 
Shenandoah Valley Academy with a time 
of 3:14.30. Michelle McCurdy of Col- 
legedale Academy was the second female 
finisher with a time of 3:26.53.

Here we are in a relenUess world symbolized by computers, pavement, and shopp- 
ing centers Increasingly, people arc unable to withstand the stresses of a cullut.

I placed on the campus worship program . 

One of the greatest things Christian eaiJiMlum to oiler youm loaay is ilie Chris- 

lan view of man and God's solution for our dilemma. As president of Southern Col- 

I lege, I plan to lake senously the spiritual dunensions of our heritage. A person's rela- 

I tionship to God affects every part of being and doing. This fact has led the faculty 

and me to talce a new iooi: at worship attendance. 

I believe that worship-a deliberate openness to the divine perspective-is a part 

of learning, and therefore renewed emphasis will be placed on the campus worship 

t program. Personal meditation and study are being encouraged. A private devotional 

I life makes religious services much more meaningful. Goals for scheduled times of 

] worship are: to offer a daily reminder of who we are, why we are here, and where 

egomgitodevelopasenseof Christian community: to give the student strength 

anc^ encouragement through Christian fellowship; to enhance the spiritual growth 
of the student; and to estabUsh and strengdien the habit of daily devoUoni 

A new worship schedule just developed this summer provides 13 opuons each week. 
Residence hall students will now attend worship at least once a day, five days each 
week. (This is up from three.) Attendance at Friday evening vespers and either the 
Wednesday or SabbaUi evening service in the church is expected and included in the 
live Sabbath School and church attendance is also required but not counted among 
the 13 options. 

Just as pastors are seeking to do across the Southern Union, here at the college 
we want to hold the Bible in its rightful place of prominence so God's Word can 
f^^wJ^ \°^^ °"'' ?" "' assurance for the future. We must not abandon the 
great biblical doctrmes that have drawn us together and brought us through so much 
to the present time. God's special reveladon gives us truths far more relevant to our 
needs than all the glories of science. At die same tune, reason is not the enemy of 
God. The objective pursuit of knowledge and intimate reverence for God will never 
lead us to different places. 

Intelligence and spirituaUty must be combined. Simply being a child of God gives 
us moral responsibiUty. In one sense, God and His church depend on us in a special 
way to clearly herald the message of hope to a dymg world 

Adventist colleges such as Southern should be a statement of faith, hope, and love 
Philosophy asks: What can I know? What ought we to do? and. In what may we 
hope? We answer: Through God the possibihtics of our knowledge are limitless-and 
laitn in God reaches even beyond knowledge. We ought to love God and to love our 
neighbor. This leads to a life of service. Our hope is built on Jesus Christ and His 
righteousness. This gives us purpose and inner peace 

As for me, 1 wiU stake my own life and future on Christ, my Savior and Lord.

Dear Editor: 
I do appreciate the concen 
1 enjoy being the editor of the Southern Accent. There is a certain quality of in- of all us students. Seriously, : 
sanity that makes the job very enjoyable. Often, the staff and I spend long nights believes strongly enough in the spiritual dimension of our school to tnake bold chan '"* I 

putting everything together. After a while these have a way of catching up 

so we have devised several different methods of keeping each other awake and in 

touch with reality. 

First, [here is putting your face over the air-conditioner with the controls on "high 
cool". Also we go into the darkroom and take turns sniffmg old photo chemistry 
(that's always a real eye-opener), and if we get desperately tired. . . we go to bed. 

To me, though, it's more than the endless nights spent on lay-out, and more than though 
the hundreds of Dunkin Munchkins and gaUons of milk we consume. It's the oppor- where \ 
tunity lo give you, the student, a chance to voice your opinions. 

To illustrate my point, let me tell you about this crazy vision I gel sometimes on 
one of those long nights in the office, I dream that I'm a vailant knight riding on 
agalJant, white steed whose name is "Accent". I'm wearing a mangnificently gleaming 
suit of armour. My left hand holds an immense shield that brilliantly git 
sunlight. In my right hand I'm holding a razor sharp, double-edged swc 
inscription embedded into it that reads, in big, bold Greek letters, "Student Voice". 
1 am the defender of student rights and below me is a giant dragon I have just slain, 
and his name was "Administrative Injustices". The vision goes on with me riding 
off into a glorious sunset with a fair maiden from another Student Association pro- 
duction, but that's irrelevant. 

I know it sounds crazy, but my point is this: without the input of your opinions, 
as a student of Southern College, I'm going to get burned in the dragon's lair. The 
Southern Accent is dead in the water without student voice. We have no horse, shield 
or sword vrithout your input (I can handle the fair maiden myself). The Accent needs 
your letters to the editor to give the paper dimension. It needs your responses to "Issues 
charge the paper with life. If you have some question or complai 

that he must know will seriously damage his popularity with the students 
philosophy behind his actions is too solid to argue with. 
I do, however have a little concern that the progam is not fulfilling the 

jio of the philosophy behind it. " " ^'*

I was iate for Wednesday night prayer meeting last 
week and had to sit near the back. Now 1 wish I had 
been on time. There were people talking and studying 
throughout the entire service. I know most of the peo- 
ple that come to worship only go because they are 
made to. It was obvious they would rather be talking 
with friends or studying Health and Life. 

I am writing this letter because I feel that something 
should be done about the studying and the talking that 
goes on in the church during any meeting, whether it 
be a Wednesday night prayer meeting or a Tuesday- 
Thursday chapel. No one but the student can help keep 
the noise level down during meetings but the faculty 
could ban books from the church as they have done 
in the past. In Leviticus 19:30 it states, "Ye shall keep 
My sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the 
Lord." The church is the house of God where we come 
and sing praises to Him and worship Him. It is not 
a library or a study hall for students to study their 
school work but to study God. According to the dic- 
tionary, reverence is an act of showing respect. When 
someone invites you to their house, you respect them, 
you pay attention to what they are saying. 

So next time you attend a meeting in the church, 
don't take your books or talk to your friends. When 
you listen to what the speaker has to say. it makes him 
feel more comfonable-just put yourself in his shoes. 
If you had prepared a speech for class and when you 
were giving that speech everyone was either talking to 
their neighbor or studying for another class, you would 
feel rejected. Besides, the speaker might have 
something good to say and you might end up a better 
person for listening to him instead of talking or

What does one do after ihirty-five years of leaching and practicing medicine? The 
obvious answer is— retire. Thai is what Dr. Robert K. Wolfer, Ph.D., D.O.. did 
several years ago. But Dr. Wolfer enjoys teaching so much he is back doing it again— 
and this time he is volunteering! The Southern College Biology Department is lucky 
to have Dr. Wolfer teaching one of his specialties— anatomy. 

After obtaining his D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy) from Kansas City College of 
Osteopathic Medicine, and ihen his B.A. in Biology and Chemistry from Andrews 
University, Dr. Wolfer taught such classes as anatomy, histology and embryology 
at Michigan State, where he secured his Ph.D. in zoology and anatomy, Des Moines 
College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery, 
and held (he position of Chairman of the Department of Radiology and Nuclear 
Medicine at West Virginia State College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

This is not all Dr. Wolfer has done — while leaching, and between leaching 
assignments, he practiced medicine privately. He was a General Practitioner and 
Radiologist in Missouri, Florida and Michigan. 

■, has given lectures at various 
.ssociation for the Advance- 
ment of Science, and as a matter of course, he is a member of AOA (American 
Osteopathic Association) and NASDAO (National Association of Seventh-day Adven- 
lisi Osteopaths). 

Why is Dr. Wolfer volunteering his time? His answer is "for the fun of it." He 
leaches for the "pleasure and excitement of helping students learn. ..and to pass along 
some clinical, practical applications while they're learning." 

Welcome aboard. Dr. Wolfer and thank you for your missionary service at our

Soviets Free Daniloff 

New York (NYTImes News Service and Associated Press) -- On Monday, the Soviet 
Union freed Nicholas Daniloff, the American Journalist who had been confined to 
Moscow for the past month on spying charges. Daniloff's release occurred after a 
three hour meeting late Sunday in New York between Secretary-of-Slate George P. 
Shultz and Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze at the Soviet Mission. U.S. 
officials asserted that Daniloff was arrested on trumped-up charges of espionage in 
retaliation for Soviet U.N. employee Gennadiy Zakharov's August 23rd arrest. The 
Soviets denied a link between the cases and insisted that Zakharov was framed by 
the FBI. 

House Immigration Bill Tackles Fake Marriages 

Washington (AP) - The House of Representatives voted Monday to stiffen federal 
penalties for immigrants who fraudulently take wedding vows with Americans to gain 
immediate entry into the United States and then have the marriages annulled. The 
House boosted the criminal penalties for fraudulent immigrant marriages to a $250,000 
fine and five years in prison. A conditional two-year award of permanent resident 
status for certain newly married aliens was approved, providing the couples would 
prove their marriages legitimate. In addition, "fiance" visas would be denied to aliens 
who have not personally met their intended American spouses.

Time Out 

All Night Softball 

Bv Robbie Shanko 

Ai 5:49 a.m. , Sunday morning, the 1986 All Night Softball game came to a close 
wiih Randy Beers' team the victor. Assisted by Maynard Wheeler, who was named 
Most Valuable Player of the tournameni. Randy Beers and team edged away a 9-8 
victory over Captain David Butler and his veterans. Beers figured that the more games 
they won. the less games they would have to play, thus giving themselves more free 
time between games. Thus, ihey only played and won four games including the final 
against Butler. 

Butler's team played five games straight, without a break, from 12:00 a.m. until 
5:49 a.m., besides the two games they played earlier. Though they were exhausted, 
they managed to come in second place. 

The games began at 8:00 p.m., Saturday evening, September 27, with 14 teams 
ready lo test their skills and endurance. It was a double elimination lournament which 
allowed two losses per team before being eliminated. 

The weather for the evening was excellent! Everyone preferred the warmer weather 
as to the freezing temperatures of last year. As a resuh, fans came out in record 
numbers to cheer their team and that special person on. 

The first place team was Beers, second place team was Butler and the third place 
team was Valenzuela. 

If you were not able to make the all-nighter, you probably noticed the ones dragg- 
ing around Monday morning who did make it to the games.

ttenuon, they often have problems that they want to share with you and they always

What are your ambitions, your dreams, your goals? What matters to you most? 
What do you really want from life? I've often grappled with these questions and sad- 
ly, my dreams closely resemble those of the man I've described. 1 often desire more 
to impress others rather than to touch other's lives, and share in their experiences. 
When I die, I don't want to be remembered by the wealth I've accumulated, but by 
the tears in the eyes of those that I've loved. 

This last week and a half has been very difficult for me. I spent all of my time 
studying for the Law School Admissions Test, which I took yesterday. I'd take prac- 
tice test after practice test unit! my neck would cramp, my head ache, and my eyes 
burn. My brain turned to mush and I could spend no time studying for my regular 
classes. It seemed to me that my whole life, everything I'd dreamed about, was hang- 
ing on this one test. Without a great score it would be impossible for me to get into 
a top school. Stress, stress, stress, and I wasn't pleasant to be around. I don't even 
get excited about spilling my guts publicly, but I've learned something this week that 

A friend's love is the most precious thing on this earth. I never knew my friends 
cared so much. The night before the test a friend gave me a stress relieving back,

The night before the test I received two special notes. "Stan, I just wanted you to 
know I will be proying for you tomorrow morning. God knows how important this 
is. God will help you. Don't worry and think cleariy. Thanks for being my friend, 
we all need them." 

"Dear Stan, Just want to wish you well for the test tomorrow. 1 am thinking about 
you and will say a prayer for you tonight. Get some good rest. I love you alot." 

The future is important and we must plan for it, but the only time we live in is 
the present. The importance of friends and the love they give seems so much rlearer 
tomenow. I hope the rest of you are less "dense" than I. Relationships are the greatest 
store of value on this earth. God's love and a friend's love are the greatest reality.

Dear Lori, 

Just out of curiosity, do you believe in kissing on the first date? What about love 
at first sight? 

An Infatuated Freshman 

Dear Infatuated, 

"No" to both questions. Of course, this is personal opinion, but I always figured 
kissing on the first date to be a bit hasty. On the same note, love at first sight often 
closes the poor lover's eyes to the lovee's faults, and leaves him/her vulnerable to 
blind infatuation. One's should be kept open on any date. 
But, there are always exceptions to every rule, and even the strongest of us females 
i weaken and allow the male to "steal" a kiss on the first date. And 
"all in love with the first sighted lovee. One never knows. 

Limited Vocabulary 

I didn't know either, so I called the gym and asked the deskworker who also didn' 
know. But 1 did find out what their hours are, regardless of the "nonclass time' 
bit. The gymnasium is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 
8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, and from 1 to 10 p.m. on Sunday. The raqi^etball ( 
are open at all of those limes, since 1, with prejudice, assume the courts were 

What I object to is the general 
attitude of S.C. that borders on 
haughtiness. The attitude that this 
place is special or even better than 
others because of the organ seems 
wrong. Shouldn't S.C. be considered 
special because of academic ex- 
cellence and the people here rather 
than the jewelry it has to show? 

To show my meaning, 1 just begin 
by pointing out how the organ isus- 
ed to advertise for the school. To be 
sure the organ is a wonderful asset, 
but to center on that alone is not 
right. All I heard from recruiters 
before coming to Southern College 
was about the new organ and how I 
should go to the college just to see 
and hear that. 1 heard about the 
classes, teachers, finacial aid, and 
social activities, but the organ was 
stressed above all those items. 1 feel 
that the organ is important, but that 
S.C. is an educational institution, not 
just here as a picturesque organ case. 
Southern should be known for 
academic excellence not just organ 

A second point showing the thin 
line between the vairmess and natural 
pride of the college is how freshmen 
were made to sit through a chapel 
dedicated to the organ during sum- 
mer session. There has never been a 
chapel dedicated to the new music 
building or Brock Hall, or the new 
Garden of Prayer by the religion 
■why should the organ be 
singled out? Again 1 feel that the 
school is showing off their expensive 
tool and being ahnost haughty. 

A third point I wish to make show- 
ing the questionable attitude is the 
comments that have been said by 
faculty members and various other 
people stating that the organ is so 
unique and special that none other 
can really match it. That is definite- 
ly a fact to be proud of, but the at- 
titude that accompanies it is one of. 
"Yeah, our organ is one of the best 
and no one can touch it." 

I don't mean to single out any one 
member of the faculty, nor step on 
anyone's toes. I just feel that the 
general attitude being emminated 
from S.C. about the organ tends to 
be arrogant and "look at us". I am 
stating my wish that the people of 
S.C. not put emphasis on the organ 
over all the other things here. S.C. 
has a good school here, with the 
organ being a fine addition. Don't 
ruin the good standing by being so 
haughty of the organ.

\Magician To Perform 
In Collegedale 

Christian Illusionist Steve Varro will be 
performing for vespwrs on Friday Oct. 10, 
|n the CoUegedale Church at 8:00. Varro 
s year round throughout the U.S. 
■presenting his programs to service 
lorganizations, colleges and 
[churches and conventions. 
In 1978, Varro began a ci 
ime performer after he discovered the 
|potential of "Gospel Magic" when he 
s asked lo perform at a church camp- 
meeting after his conversion in 1975. 
"The word magic has for a long time 
en tagged with the label of evil or 
tanic. Speaking to the dead in seance 
an unexplainable event, controlled by 
itan, a supernatural being, therefore we 

can say that Satan does magic. Creation 
i^also an unexplainable happening con- 
trolled by God, a supernatural being, 
therefore we could say that God also does 
magic. The magic I do is neither of these. 
The magic that I do is simply a sleight of 
hand or illusion. An eight year old can 
do what I do with 25 years experience," 
said Varro. 

"The object of using sleight of hand 
in the pulpit," Varro said, "is simply a 
way of visually communicating the 

Telling others of the importance of a 
love relationship with Jesus Christ is 
always first and foremost in Varro 's pro- 
grams. The magic is secondary.

Relocate Tower 

By Charlene Spencer 
According to WSMC's manager, Olsen 
Perry, the station tower has to relocate 
in order to comply with FCC (Federal 
Communications Commission) specifica- 
tions. The present tower height of 199 
feet is approximately 2 feet short in rela- 
tion to its transmitting power of 100,000 

According to Perry, the two-feet ad- 
justment cannot be made at the tower's 
present location since it will interfere with 
air traffic control at the Lovell Field 

But "insteadof moving the tower," ex- 
plained Gerald Peele, development direc- 
tor of the station, "we plan to purchase 
a new trasmitter and keep the present one 
as backup. 

Peele explained that relocating will 
eliminate a few other problems. "The 
tower is not high enough to get over Mis- 
sionary Ridge," Peele said, "and that 
creates multi-path (static) in certain

to improve the appearances of Southern 
College's vehicles. So far Bass has in-

The Motor Pool takes care of the ac- 

tual labor while the projects are funded 
by each department. In line for service are 
the Cafeteria and Service Departments. 
Eventually, Bass hopes to get to 
Engineering and Grounds but says that 
this will need further consideration

Southern College Delegates Attend IntercoUegeiate Bible Conference 

By Allan Marlin 
Located next to glistening Lake 
Ouachita, Camp Yorkiown Bay. Arkan- 
sas, was host to 60 Southern College of 
S.D.A. delegates as well as 80 other 
Adventist collegians for the Inter- 
collegiate Bible Conference. 

From October 2-4, representatives 
from Union College, Southwestern 
Adventist College, and Southern College 
took part in recreational activities. Bible 
study. Christian fellowship, delicious 
meals, and religious programs. S.A.C. 
and U.C. had 60 and 20 students respec- 
tively in altendence at the conference. 

The Southern College group left Col- 
legedale, TN, 9:00 p.m.. Wednesday, Oc- 
tober I , to arrive at Yorktown Bay for 
waterskiing, sailing, canoeing, parasail- 
ing. and jet skiing all day Thursday. 

Spiritually focused meetings began 
Thursday nighu The book of Phitippians 
was the area of indepth study for the col- 
legians. The delegates were divided into 
eleven groups to do a special paraphras- 
ing of the entire book; the new version 
was affectionately know as the ICBC 
Version (Intercollegiate Bible Conference 

Friday morning, following breakfast, 
more Bible study followed an address by 
Elder Allan Williamson. Southern Union 
Youth Director. Affirming the delegates 

to the fact that Christ Uves and works in 
the lives of young people, Williamson 
told unique, incredible stories of inspira- 

Friday afternoon was left open for 
more sun basking and water sports. Many 
of the delegates also took advantage of 
free time to visit amd make new acquain- 
tances with students from different 
Adventist colleges. 

Sharing sections from Philippians, a 
message on "The Types of Friends" by 
Victor Brown, Chaplain of Southwestern 
Adventist College, and an extra-long out- 
door Afterglow program, were among 
the Friday evening happenings. Follow- 
ing the Afterglow, evening rides were 
given on the pontoon boat under a 
beautiful starlit Arkansas sky. 

Sabbath began with a "Southern- 
style" Sabbath School, presented by 
S.C.'s CARE Ministries. Songs with both 

nd do 

i Bob 

jazz/gospel flavor filled the 
Folkenberg, Southern's Assistant 
Chaplain, led the group in music with the 
help of musicians Mark Bond, Greg 

Fulbrighi, and Allan Martin, assisted in 
skits, readings, a panel discussion, and a 
mime that brought across the theme, 
"What is real Christianity?" 

The sharing of more paraphrased sec- 
tions of Philippians and the worship hour 
message by Elder Williamson followed 
Sabbath School. The afternoon had 
various hikes, pontoon rides on the lake 
and nature programs in store for the 
students as well as a nice post-Sabbath- 
lunch nap. 

Closing out the Sabbath and the 
weekend on a high spiritual note, the con- 
ference delegates took part in a commu- 
nion service that was predeced by an 
agape feast. "Side By Side" was sung 
hand in hand as the students formed a 
large circle in the candle-lit dining hall. 

Following the service, tears and good- 
byes were exchanged as Union and 
Southern College made preparations to 
make the long trek back to their respec- 
tive campuses. 

Less of an emotional and spiritual high 
and more of a time away to "get on the 
level with the Lord" was the way many 
of this year's delegates explained the con- 
ference. Without the stress of studies and 
deadlines, many of the delegates said that 
they gained more of an understanding of 
balance in Christianity from their ex- 

perience at Camp Yorktown Bay. 

"Sometimes you come away from Bil 
ble conference with a real religio 
only to come back down to the lows al 
school," commented Pam Ivins. c 
the Southern delegates. "This conferenci 
gave me more of a level-headed realizal 
tion of my Christain experience. I realljl 
enjoyed myself."

[An Interview With Sahly 

By Chris McKee & Scott McClure 
I Chris:"Where do you see Southern College now and where would you like to see it?" 

I Dr. Sahly:"This is a fine institution, one of the best our church operates. The physical 
Ian, structure, and the campus was well planned and laid out. The campus was ac- 
lally built for 1800 students and we presently have 1200 students. In terms of where 
e are going, we need to increase the number of students on this campus. Those things 

Iwill have to happen the in the areas of general recruiting and a long-term plan and 

Tfevaluation of our present curriculum." 

I Chris:" What are your short-t 

1 goals for Southern College?' 

I Dr. Sahly:"My immediate goals are to focus on marketing and recruiting: seeing what 
i/e can do to improve the numbers on this campus. Strategically we are going to try 
improve the percentage of Adeventisl academy seniors that come here. Long-range 
ve need to develop the kind of acedemic program that would be more marketable 
o the students and bring the students out. There are no long-term plans that I can 
ee in terms of building new buildings; the campus is basically built. Perhaps in the 

I long-range future, the science and math facilities, which are currently the oldest 

I buildings on campus, could certainly use some improvement. 1 think it's going to 
a challenge to keep the enrollment up over the next five years as to where we can 

I keep everything in balance. The enrollment is dangerously low at this point, because 
ihe campus was designed for 1800 people. We currently have fixed costs for about 

1 1 800 students. And so we're at very much of a crisis point right now trying to deter- 
w big the student enrollment is going to be, and get the rest of the campus 
s of personnel and teachers and so on) in balance with that. We're out of 

I balance now. The enrollment has dropped but the staff has not dropped. Long-range 
the improvements have to come in the acedemic offering and marketing, but 1 see

New Communications Division Chairman-The Oliphant Man 

C.A. (Bill) Oliphant 

By Lynford Morion 

Communication and Journalism majors can expect some changes in their division 
over the next few years. Dr. C.A. (Bill) Oliphant arrived last Wednesday and has 
been appointed chairman of the communications division. As Division Chariman he 
plans to build the present program into one that offers a degree (30 hrs.) in each 
of three areas: Broadcast Productions, Public Relations and Journalism. 

The desire to build a department that offers a specialized degree in each of three 
areas is one that Dr. Ohphant has had for a long time. He says he remembers getting 
together with his friends, Don Ruth, Associate Secretary of the General Conference 
and Earl Coffey of Coffey Associates, Inc., while they worked together in Public 
Relations. The three, then, would discuss the need for one of our Adventist schools 
to have a complete journalism program; one which is accredited by the Accrediting 
Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications, the national ac- 
creditation organization for college and university departments and schools of jour- 
nalism throughout the United States. Since accepting his new position at Southern 
College, he has made that one of his major goals. 

Among the immediate plans of Dr. Oliphant are those to add classes to the cur- 
riculum as soon as possible. Under the discipline of Journalism, students can expect 
to see additions such as a class in News Commentary where instruction Is given in 
the proper way to write editorials and book reviews, etc. Public Relations students 
can anticipate the addition of classes such as Public Relations: Principles and Theory, 
and Fundamentals of Advertising, Public Affairs and Documentary Production are 
just a couple of the classes scheduled to be added to the Broadcast Production area, 
as well as several Broadcast Journalism workshops. Along with the addition of these 
new classes, Dr. Oliphant also plans to begin a writers' workshop. During the sum- 
mer, freelance writers from all over the nation will be able to attend the workshop 
where they will recieve instruction and critique on their past and present work. 

Finally, another one of Dr. Oliphant's goals is to set up a Journalism Professional 
Advisory Council. The 12 to 14 member council will consist of newspaper editors 
within the region, news editors, and public relation executives. The purpose is to help 
those within the department keep in touch with the "real world". Members of the 
council will visit the campus once a year and spend a day with departmental majors. 
During this time they will help the students get acquainted with the professional re- 
quirements of their field. They will also hold question and answer sessions and serve 
as guest lecturers for the journalism classes. Members of the council will help to pro- 
vide internships and assist in job placement. 

Dr. Oliphant earned his Ph.D. in Mass Communication from the University of 
Iowa. He received a Master of Arts in Journalism at the University of California 
at Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Arts in English with a French minor from La Sierra 

Professionally, he has a lengthy and impressive track record in journalism and com- 
munications. Most recently he served as Senior Vice President for Coffey Associates, 
Inc., and editor of Health Scene, a magazine which he and Cecil Coffey built and 
edited from its conception lo its current AVi million reader circulation. In the past 
he served various positions as Vice President for Development, Marketing, Pubhc 
Relations, Community Health Education at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, book 
editor for the Southern Publishing Association in Nashville, Tennessee, and Pubhc 
Relations director for "Faith For Today". 

The profits from the magazine Health Scene, which Dr. Oliphant formerly edited, 
now serve to fund the chair position he now holds.

turns ai exchanging and opening gifts. I can remember ; 
[ell me that there really wasn't a Santa Claus anymore

at the local Red Food Store. 

The only mystery, Ihe only real excitement that us kids ever had, was seeing who 
had [he largest present under the tree. It seemed to rotate every year so that each 
of us would have his turn at being able to proclaim proudly that he had the largest 

I remember one Christmas that it happened to be my turn at having the largest 
gift. I was particularly audacious about my good fortune, for it seemed to have been 
a little overdue. I flaunted it relentlessly at my brother and sister. 

My package was big. Almost half as big as the Christmas tree itself. It was wrap- 
ped in bright, shiny, red and green paper with little Santas sparalically placed all 
over. What really made it special was that it had three bows. Everybody else only 
had one bow on their presents but mine had three bows. 

Visions in my imagination of what it could possibly be danced jubilantly in my 
head. "As big as the box is," I brilliantly concluded to myself, " it must be a shiny 
new 10 speed bike with racing training wheels. Or maybe its the world's largest train 
set (C'mon, I was only 10 years old; these things were important)!" Anyway, being 
big, stemingly expensive and pretty with the Santa Claus wrapping paper, it must 
be something really special. 1 could hardly wait to open it. 

Finally Christmas morning came and my family once again gathered around the 
tree to go through the yearly routine of exchanging gifts. I opened all my smaLer 
gifts one at a time rather impaitiently; what I really wanted to get to was the big one. 

At last there was only one gift left under the tree and it was aL mine. It stood 
ominously before me as if it held some mystery within it that would make my life 
meaningful and complete. The visions were still dancing in my head. I tore open the 
package only to find another package neatly wrapped in the same paper. I opened 
it and got the same results. This went of for about five episodes when finally, in the 
last box, that was smaller-than any gift opened that day, 1 found a pack of chewing 
gum. It was my favorite kind of gum but at this point that was irrelevant. 

I had been fooled, misguided, led to believe something that wasn't true. I allowed 
myself to judge a book by it's cover, a package by it's size, a gift by it's wrapping 
and I ended up sadly dissapointed. 

I relived this experience just recently. Not literally, I mean I didn't celebrate 
Christmas in October, but synonymously. 

Just a few days ago the opportunity for me to make a new friend presented itself. 
The particular person involved was someone who I had heard a few negative things 
about. There was something about the place they were from, the way they dressed, 
basically just their appearance, their "size and wrapping", that made it easy for people 
to mis-interpret them. Friendsof mine sensed their obligation to forewarn me about 
what kind of person I was allowing myself to associate with. 

When 1 finally did get to spend some time vrith them to share and get to know 
them, I discovered underneath all the warnings, blasts, and pre-suppositions a sen- 
sitive, caring and multi-dimensional person. I must say I am glad I took the time 
to get to know them for I made a special, new friend. If I had listened to the majori- 
ty of people's opinions 1 would have truly missed out on the chance of being a friend 

the short-sightedness of society. 

Don't judge people simply by what they look like. Have the intelligence to look 
beyond a person's size and wrapping to what is on Ihe inside. Who knows? Beneath 
It all may be a very good friend.

Since the stage has been set, I will now offer my suggestion. There are some \

Dear Editor: 

I'm writing in response to the editorial 
written by Jim Huenergardt in the issue 
from October 9th. I'm glad somebody 
finally wrote down what I've been try- 
ing to say for the past few years regar- 
ding so-called "Christian Rock". 

When you break a song down, what 
actually makes it a "rock and roll" 
song? Is it the beat or is it the lyrics? It 
seems to me that the lyrics are what con- 
stitutes the type of song it is. For in- 
stance, you could take Amy Grant's 
song "Sing Your Praise to the Lord", 
change the lyrics around so that they 
weren't sacred, and you would be left 
with a song just like any of the others 
heard on KZ-106. On the other hand, 
however, there are many other songs on 
the radio that aren't quite so "upbeat". 
Lionel Richie's "Hello" could just as 
easily be turned into a sacred song in 
much the same manner. Therefore, the 
beat, obviously, isn't all that constitutes 
a rock song. 

Unfortunately, though, many people 
are very closed-minded about this sub- 
ject. Some believe that all contemporary 
Christian is okay to listen to, but they 
wouldn't dare turn on a rock radio sta- 
tion. On the other hand, there are peo- 
ple who are completely against any kind 
of music except the "elevator" kind (no 
offense you guys, but this is true). Most 
of today's "elevator" music is adapted 
from popular rock songs, believe it or 
not. So what's the difference between all 
three? Not all that much, actually. 

Anyhow, my main point is this: We 
shouldn't discriminate because of 
musical tastes, especially in Christian 
music. Some people prefer the rock-type 
sounds of Amy Grant and Petra, some 
prefer a more easygoing sound like San- 
di Patti, some prefer an "older" type, 
such as the Bill Gaither Trio, and still 
others prefer just plain old hymns. But,

hvSMC: A Strong History In 

iThe Community 

-October 23. 1986/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

By Eric demons 
On November 13, 1961, FM 90.5 
I WSMC became a fully Jiscensed non- 
commercial public radio station on the 
I campus of Southern College. Since then 
station has come a long way. 
V big move came in 1967 when the sta- 
1 boosted its power to 80,000 watts, 
is important as the history of the sta- 
1 is the impact the station has today, 
only on Southern College, but on the 
I Chattanooga area. 

WSMC has listeners from as far away 
s Birmingham, Alabama, and Atlanta, 
Georgia, but what about right here in 
Chattanooga? MicheaJ Alfano of WDEF 
radio, Chattanooga, had this to say about 
' WSMC. "It is posible for a non- 
I commercial station to have an impact on 
the market." WSMC, according to Birch 
Radio Ratings for January of 1986 had 
a higher rating than both WUTC and 
WFLl which are non-commercial sta- 
tions. WSMC also has more listeners than 
WDXB, a commercial station. 

Greg Schafer of WSKZ radio, the 

Chattanooga station with the most 

■ listeners, also felt that it was possible for 

a non-commercial station to run suc- 

\ cessfully in a highly commercial industry. 

WSMC is known not only for its 

classical programming but also for its 
news programming. In 1981-82 WSMC 
won the best non-spot news and best 
radio production from the Tennessee 
Associated Press Broadcast Association. 
WSMC is also at this time the only sta- 
tion in the Chattanooga area that receives 
"National Public Radio" and "All 
Things Considered" direct from satelhte. 
WSMC may be putting another page 
in their history book soon. The station 
recently received a mandate from the 
Board of Trustees which commissioned 
it to move its broadcast tower from White 
Oak Mountain to Signal Mountain. If 
funds are raised to make this move, the 
station's broadcast ability to downtown 
Chattanooga and outlying areas will be 
greatly increased. * 

WSMC will celebrate it's 25th anniver- 
sary on Nov. 13. To commemorate the 
anniversary. Bob Edwards, host of 
NPR's "Morning Edition" will be flown 
in from Washington, D.C., to hold a lec- 
ture at the celebration. 

If the last years are any indication of 
where WSMC is heading in the radio in- 
dustry, the next 25 years are sure to be

Based on responses from 4,349 ran- 

I domly selected students who answered a 

29-page questionnaire, this picture of 
general attitudes emerged from America's 
college and university campuses: 

Fifty six percent think sex before mar- 
riage is always or sometimes wrong, while 
95 percent believe sex outside marriage is 
always or sometimes wrong, and 69 per- 
cent prefer postponing marriage until 
they have achieved other goals. 

Seventy percent believe that cigarettes 
are harmful and 48 percent mdicated they 
would not even date someone who 

Eighty-four percent think cocaine is 
harmful and 62 percent believe marijuana 
use is also unwise, but only 10 percent feel 
that way about alcohol. 

Seventy-three percent favor the death 
penalty, and 69.9 percent think abortion 
should be legal. 

Respondents expressed their political 
views and alignment; 37 percent con- 
sidered themselves Republicans, 31 per- 
cent independents, and only 28 percent 
listed themselves as Democrats. 

Doctors, scientists, and professors are 
highly respected by students. But 
reporters, government workers, and 
politicians had better mind their "public 
image," because 60 percent, 47 percent 
and 70 percent, respectively, of students 
had little or no triiSt in these professions. 
Sixty-nine percent of the students said 
religion was important to varying degrees 
in their lives, and 26 percent said they at- 
tended religious services at least once a 
week; 51 percent attend at least once a

to financial habits of students, including 
the fact that 48 percent live offcampus, 
and in effect run households.

more than half of their discretionary in- 
come from their own earnings, and 58 
percent of those said they earned over 
$2,000 last year, while 25 percent earned 
over $5,000. 

When it comes to discretionary spen- 
dmg, 61 percent said they had 5100 per 

month or more to spend. Nineteen per- 
cent in that group has between S150-249 
and another 19 percent spend $250 or 
more. Largest dollar expenditures by 
students during the school year were at 
the college store, with a median of 

Ninety-sbt percent said they spent more 
money on clothing during the past school 
year than on any other category— with a 
median expenditure of $187.40. Four per-

on health and beauty aids. 

In other survey highlights, 56 percent 
have and use bank credit cards. 4] per- 
cent have borrowed money to attend col- 
lege, and 86 percent have savings ac-

high-priced items as well: Sixteen percent 
have a new car, 39 percent purchased a 
used car; 78 percent own a television set,

Issues & Answers 

Should the Church Ordain Women? 

By Jerry A. Gladson 

The question of the ordination of 
women in the Adventist church has reach- 
ed an impasse. Eveo before the last 
General Conference, held in New Orleans 
in 1985, it was decided to table the issue 
for further study. A new study commis- 
sion has now been appointed. Pro- 
ordination forces envision this may mean 
the Adventist church will become the tail 
rather than the head in taking this step; 
the anti-ordination side fears radical new 
departures in church poUty if women ever 
set foot in the pulpit. 

Is there a way through this impasse? A 
way which does justice to Scripture, the 
Spirit of Prophecy, and the new 
egalitarianism in society? I believe there 
is, but only if we realize why the deadlock 
exists and are willing to consider an alter- 

some of it, in fact, possibly better. 
Pastoral work requires strong nurturant 
ability; women seem to possess this in 
greater measure than men. This tradi- 
tional objection, however, is unlikely to 
be discarded unless the second concern is 

yof d 


I paralysis has developed for 
two reasons. In the first place, it has not 
been our custom to ordain women. We 
are just not used lo women in the pulpit 
at 11 o'clock on Sabbath morning. Old 
ways die hard. Some, in fact, seem eter- 
nal. Many objections to the ordination of 
women — a woman's place is in the home; 
women are to be submissive to their 
husbands and to men in general; women 


sophisticated versions of this traditional, 
culturally conditioned view of women. 
The actual work of ministry (preaching, 
teaching, leading, etc.) can be perform- 


This second reason stems from the 
singular fact the Bible contains no clear 
answer to whether women may be ordain- 
ed. Each side understandably marshals 
texts to support its case, and both sound 
convincing. Pro-ordinationists like Paul's 
liberating comment that in Christ "there 
is neither Jew or Greek. ..slave nor 
free.. .male nor female" (Gal. 3:28). Anti- 
ordinationisls also insist on Paul; "I per- 
mit no woman to teach or to have 
authority over men; she is to keep silent" 
(1 Tim, 2:12). Paul himself thus appears 
confused! Since Ellen White never com- 
ments on the matter, she too is mined, 
with equal bewilderment on the part of 
those watching, by both sides. 

Little can be accomplished a hurling of 
texts or quotations at the other side. This 
whole procedure, I think, is wrong- 
headed and represents an approach which 
will leave the church forever deadlocked. 

Ethicists would caL this approach a 
"prescriptive" technique. That is, it tries 
to find an explicit scriptural or Sphit of 
Prophecy prescription authorizing-or 
disapproving-the ordination of women- 
Prescriptive ethics works well when direct 
: readily available, such as 

in the Ten Commandments. But on many 
modern issues, like the use of tobacco, 
drugs, coffee, and tea, we are forced to 
adopt another method. We look instead 
for scriptural principles which will apply 
to new situations. From the principle that 
our bodies are the temple of God and 
thus worthy of honor, we derive the idea 
that tobacco, drugs, etc. are not accep- 
table to the Christian lifestyle. 

The principled approach, applied to 
the ordination of women, will lead us 
through the present deadlock and help us 
overcome the paralyzing inertia created 
by the absence of any clear statement in 
either the Bible or Ellen White, Several 
biblical principles, it seems, apply to this 

The fundamental equality and dignity 
of both sexes as part of the original order 
of things is clearly taught in Scripture. 
"So God created man in His own im- 
age.. .male and female He created them" 
(Gen, 1:27). Both male and female- 
together— make the image of God. They 
are both equally necessary in the created 

Barriers erected by sin, such as racial 
bigotry, cultural superiority, social 
stratification, sexual discrimination, etc., 
have in principle been broken down by 
the advent of our Lord. "He is our peace, 
who has made us both one, and has 
broken down the dividing wall of hostili- 
ty" (Eph. 2:14). The ground, we hke to 

say, is "level" around the cross. 

In the new age created by the gospel, 
the Spirit distributes spiritual gifts 
regardless of station in life (1 Cor. 
12:4-1 1). These gifts include administra- 
tion, prophecy, teaching, and pastoral ac- 
tivity (vv. 27-31; Eph. 4:11), There is no 
evidence of sexual restriction in the 
spiritual gifts. 

Earlier in then history, Advenlists 
moved beyond a similar prescriptive im- 
passe by taking such a principled ap- 
proach. Pro-slavery advocates in the last 
century often appealed to the fact that 
nowhere does the Bible forbid the institu- 
tion of slavery. In this they were quite 
right. But eariy Adventisis, including 
Ellen White, countered with the broad 
biblical principle of freedom. She even 
couseled civil disobedience! "The law of 
our land requiring us to deliver a slave to 
his master [the Fugitive Slave law of 
1850], we are not lo obey" {Testimonies, 
1:202). George I. Butler, later General 
Conference President (1871-74; 1880-88) I 
for a time even operated a station on the 
underground railway. 

It appears to me the issue of the ordina- 
tion of women is exactly the same kind 
of problem. If we follow the principled 
approach, we will break the deadlock and 
give women their rightful place, under the 
Spirit, in the church. God, scripture, and 
tiie dignity of all humankind will then be

Date Of The Week 

By Scoil McClure and Chris Mckee 
Our choice of the week for a good date 
1 after chapel lunch at the Gazebo. 
iLocated downtown right next to the Brass 
iRegister at 615 Georgia Avenue, the 
iGazebo features good food at reasonable 
, while also providing a nice at- 
mosphere. It is the kind of re

Ihicken and roast beef sandwiches to 
Issorted salads, including fresh fruit. 

Another advantage the Geizebo has is 
fhe variety of vegetarian entrees and 
lads that are available. As far as prices 
I, the only place that you can find more 
■reasonable is the good old cafeteria. 
Hardly any item on the lunch menu is 
triced over S5.00. 

We found dessert to be the highlight of 
fthe meal, especially the Derby Pie, a 

chocolate chip pie served a-la-mode. 

Regardless of how good the food is. 
though, the atmosphere is clearly the 
Gazebo's strong point. While sitting at a 
dimly lit table on a balcony overlooking 
the rest of the restaurant, you can enjoy 
the entertainment of a live

chains, the Gazebo reeks of class. 
However there are a few drawbacks, the 
biggest of which is the distance. Plan on 
thirty minutes' driving each way. Also, 
unless you don't mind walking a mile to 
your parking space and spending 10 
minutes just finding a space, you would 
be wise to bring some money for park- 
ing. All things considered, we give the 
Gazebo an A- on our good-things-to-do- 
for-a-date grading scale. The Gazebo 
really is a good time.

p"he Student Association has not planned a formal banquet for this semester, so the 
s Club has taken the responsibility to provide a delightful banquet open to 
students and faculty. According to Bob Jimenez, banquet coordinator and Business

lookout Mountain Country Club on November 9, 1986 at 6:30 p.m. The price is 
5 dollars per couple. The Lookout Mountain Country Club is a perfect setting for

David Ozment and his team scored 20 edging Tim Prussia's by 1 8 points last TuesI

ball to their respective goals. Finally late in the first half Mark Gomez completed 
a pass to Dave Ozment followed by an Ozment to Richard Moody completion put! 
ting Ozment on the scoreboard with seven points. Ron Coonley came back foil

The victory improves Drab's record to 2-1 and leaves Dobias' at 1-3. 

Smith 33 Rivera 31 

This game staned off slowly with both defenses doing very well, but as the game 
wore on the offense of both teams started piling up the points. Roger Moore srepped 
in at QB and did an excellent job passing the ball downfield. Stephen Pollett caught 
two touchdown passes, while Bo Smith scored one with two key extra points that 
clenched the win from Rivera. Near the end of the game Smith was ahead, but Rivera 
was threatening but Dave Kopp came down with an interception to lead Smith to 
a victory.

Bo Smith's team took complete control of this ball game with their strong aerial 
attack. Stephen Pollett led all scorers with 4 touchdown receptions. Alexis Cruz let 
Smith's team on the ground with several outstanding carries. Davis' strong point was 
the run, but the tough defense of Mike Sinclair and Jay Jones left them with lettle 
offensive threat. Jay Jones scored defensivley for Smith with a timely sack in the 
end zone for a safety. Linden DeCarmo did an excellent job defensively for Davis

Obed And The Cruisers Cruise 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/Oc[ober 23, 


I had jusi set my [ray down and slaried eacing when I couldn'l help noticing the 
conversation two girls were having sitting to my right. "I think it's sickening" said 
one gir! with a squeaky voice. 

"It's really quite sad if you ask me" replied the sweeter, more melodic voiced girl. 
"Just thinking about it makes me want to cry at night." 

"I know what you mean." chimed the sqeaky voiced girl, "No phone calls, no 
dates, after alt, isn't this college's nickname 'Southern Matrimony College' ?" 
"That's what I've heard" replied the melodic voiced girl, "but you would never know 
it around here, you'd think the guys didn't have any phones!" As their conversation 
droned on, I began to stare intensely at the scanvertiser. letting its lethargic revolv- 
ing hypnotize me. I felt myself drifting slowly back through time back to last night, 
Wednesday night. It's as if 1 am reliving a nightmare. I find myself frantically flipp- 
ing through the pages of the Joker looking for a famihar face, someone I can ask 
out for Friday night vespers. Every giri I know is either dating someone or already 
has plans for the weekend. Now 1 must decide whether to go dateless again or to 
ask someone out I have never met. I go back to the first page of the womens section 
and start looking more closely at the array of faces. With so many eligible girls, its 
hard to decide which one to ask. On to the next page I go, desperately seeking one 
gir! whom I will call, introduce myself to, and finally invite to attend vespers with 
me. My eyes stop in the middle of the page. Where has this girl been hiding? Why 
haven't I noticed her before? I think I will give it a try and call her up. The tension 
is mounting, my hean rate doubles, I find ihe Numerigue to find her phone number. 
My fingers are shaking as I dial the number, my palms are sweating profusely, my 
throat is dry and the PHONE IS RINGING! It rings three times and I hang up tell- 
ing myself that I don't need a date this weekend and 1 have enough friends and don't 

ny more. My roommate picks the phone up and dials the number fn I 
e the phone. Now instead of the ringing I hear a voice saying, '' Hellor '

"Is Lisa there?" I reply.

I still manage a "Hello, you don't know me but my name is Jim Huenergardt '

"Yes" she says. Is that all she can say

Name withheld 
Dear Editor, 

I would like to commend Dr. Gladson for his article which 
appeared in last week's issue of the Southern Accent. It is not 
easy to take a stand on a subject which is the object of debate 
within one's own church. I reaUze that Dr. Gladson was asked 
to write on the subject of the ordination of women, but he 
could have refused. He certainly could have given the legitimate 
excuse that he did not have the time to do the topic justice. 
That seems to be the position that the General Conference has 
taken. He could have hidden behind the popular "shield" of 
"further study". Bilt he chose not to hide. 1 am also pi 
that the idea has been presented in our "official student 
newspaper" here at Southern College. It says something about 
the "backbone" of those responsible for the publication a 
as that of the specific author. 

As for the topic itself, it is something I have felt has long 
needed to be addressed. I have seen men who. in my opinion, 
have been wonderful ministers; I have seen some who would 
have been better suited serving the church as business managers 
or pubhc relations directors than as pastors. But I have also 
met more than one woman blessed with both the desire and 
the talents to be excellent ministers and pastors. 1 wondered, 
these gifts and apparent "callings" did not come out ol 
nowhere. If they are presented to these women by God, how 
is it that mere humans have taken it upon themselves to decide 
that God has made an error in entrusting these virtues to a 
woman? Do these men understand the awesome responsibility 
they take upon themselves in denying God's ability to assign 
expertise appropriately to the female of-the species? Perhaps 
they have decided thatGodhasasenseofhumorandhasgiven 
these talents to the "wrong" people as a joke not to be taken 

The members and workers of the church deserve the respect 
of their leaders just as the leaders of the church deserve the 
respect of the members. And God should be given the respect 
of all of His creatures. Would it not be showing respect to 
follow the principles of God's word and honor His decisions 
as to who will receive specific abilities and callings to complete 
His work? He just might know more than we do.

J Hawkins To Be Featured 
\Soloist On Trumpet 

By Jill Rice 

Glen Allan Hawkins, sophomore 

nusic major at Southern College, is to be 

I the featured trumpet soloist at the open- 

l of the Southern College Sym- 

I phony Orchestra on November 1 . 

Mr. Hawkins, a twenty year old from 
I McDonald, Tenn., is the principle 
trumpet player in the Southern College 
I Orchestra. He auditioned for the chair 
I against trumpeter Roy Dos Santos, who 
Jtook second chair. He has been playing 
with the orchestra for two years and is 
new to the position of principle chair. 
Hawkins has played trumpet for nine 
and a half years and attributes his suc- 

cess on it to his present instructor, Mrs. 
Patricia Silver, professor of music at 
Southern College. 

When asked how he feels about the 
quality of the orchestra he plays with, he 
said, "Its a fine organizaion and I feel 
privileged to be a part of it. It is not as 
new to me as some people here, I have 
been around music all of my life."

I Trek A Trail 

By Julio Narvaez 
Its here-what many have anticipaied- 
. -the third annual Fall opening of 
I Southern's biology trails. These trails 
I which have one entrance across the road 
1 behind Hackman Hall are now beautified 
I With seasonal reds, oranges, and yellows 
I and make an excellent place to visit. 
I The original visitors, the botany 
I students, were forced to be there. But 
', many students go there on their own 
wth good reasons. There are plenty 
y thmgs to photograph such as: racers, 
"d and black peliated woodpeckers, and 

Wedgewood Trio. And along with singers 
Marilyn Dillon Cotton and Dorothy 
Evans Ackerman. trumpeter Jim Closser 
and pianist Beverly Babcock Botten will 

Greg King, pastor of the Atlanta Metro 
SDA church, and Elder Fred Fuller, 
Youth Ministries Director for the 
Kentucky-Tennessee conference will 
preside over the 8:40 and 11:15 services, 
respectively, in the college gymnasium. 
Also expected to speak are Director of 
Guidance at Forest Lake Academy, Elder 
Larry Stephens and Randall Cox, Direc- 
tor of Human Resources at Medical 
Center Hospital in Florida. 

of course, the colorful leaves. The trails 
are also a great place for picnics, jogg- 
ing, and Sabbath walks-but not kite- 
flying. Why drive to the crowded, 
smoggy Smokies, when you can take a 
relaxed view of nature right here, in Col- 
legedale's own backyard. 

So, if you find yourself in an adven- 
turesome mood and wanting to do 
something different and inexpensive, why 
not scout your biology trails? Alone or 
with a special friend.

Cuisine Carnival 

By Lyn/ord Morion 

The Collegiate Missions Club will be 
holding its annual food fair this Sunday, 
November 2nd, from 12 pm to 6 pm. The 
fair, which features food from fourteen 
countries will be held in the Spalding 
elementary school gym. Tickets will be 
sold for $3.25 each. This entitles you to 
a fuU mejtl at one booth or an assortment 
of different food from various booths- 
Students will be able to charge the tickets 
on their I.D. cards but there will be a limit 
of S6.50 per person for the entire day. 

The proceeds from the fair will help to 
pay some of the expenses for next years' 
student missionaries. The students raise 
as much money as they can through 
donations from churches, families and 
other fund-raising activities. The money 
that they lack will be made up from the 
food fair profits. 

Along with the wide array of different 
foods a number of programs are plann- 
ed so that guests can be entertained as 
they eat. "Destiny" is Just one of the 

groups scheduled to perform. A slide- 
show of the student missionaries overseas 
will also be shown periodically 
throughout the day. 

Chief in command of the food fair is 
Southern College senior Vanessa 
Radovan. She is a nursing student who, 
having completed her R.N. training, is 
finishing up this year with her B.S. 

"There is quite a bit more work to it 
than I had originaLy planned on," 
Radovan commented, "but I enjoy the 
challenge." ' 

The students hope through this event 
to get other students to consider being a 
student missionary. Witnessing, however, 
is the key reason for the fair. Coverage 
has been given in the local papers. 

An attendance of 2,000 is expecied 
with Alumni-weekend also convening this 
weekend. A high student turnout is essen- 
tial for the success of this program.

Scopes Trial Again? 

Hawkins County, Tenn. (U. S. News 
and World Report, Nov. 3, 1986)-- 
Federal Judge Thomas Hull ruled last 
week that Hawkins County school of- 
ficials violated students' religious 
freedoms by expelling them for refusing 
to read books they viewed as "anti- 
Christian". Hull ordered the schools to 
allow objecting pupils "to opt out of 
reading class"~a decision fundamen- 
talists hailed as a blow against "religious 
bigotry". Civil libertarians predicted that 
the ruling, if upheld, would throw public 

education into disarray as sect after sect 
filed objections to schoolbooks. The Ten- 
nessee case and similar lawsuits have been 
brought by fundamentahsts who com- 
plain that textbooks are written with a 
liberal bias. Parents complained, too, 
that reading books ignore mainstream 
religions while prominently discussing 
such movements as feminism, humanism, 
pacifism; and vegetarianism. Hull's rul- 
ing will bar Tennessee from operating 
schools "in a way which systematically 
forces Christians.. .out," declared Beverly 
LaHaye of Concerned Women for 
America, which represented parents in- 
court. Liberals were quick to denounce 
the court's decision as a formula for 
chaos. "Shutting kids in and out of the 
classroom every time certain themes come 
up is not practical," said Timothy Dyk, 
a lawyer defending the Hawkins County 
School Board. Both sides agree that the 

grass-roots drive is alread^iflecfin^ex^ 
tbooks, as publisher are "dumbing" 
them down so they won't offend anyone. 
The battle over God and school is far 
from over. The Supreme Court wil rule 
this term on the constitutionality of a 
Louisiana law that requires teachers to 
give Biblical "creation science" equal 
time with evolution theory. This 
reporter's opinion: why not allow equal 
time or equal representation of these sub- 
ject and allow students to decide for

Heart Song Performs 
Thanksgiving Concert 
in Thatcher Chapel 

By Allan Martin 

Heart Song, Southern College of Seventh-day Adveniisi's 
own contemporary Christian music group, performed last Sab- 
bath, October 25th, in Thatcher Chapel at 3:00 p.m. Spon- 
sored by CARE Ministries, the concert entitled, Thanks From 
The Heart, featured the seven member group and several 
original songs written by them. 

"I really enjoyed it," remarked Jeff Cox, a sophomore who 
was among the 250 students who attended. "It's nice to hear 
hfe (in music) for a change," he added. 

Heart Song uses the contemporary sounds of electric 
keyboards and synthesizers along with the traditional piano and 
guitar to provide a rich blend of accompaniment for their two 
female singers, Laura Lewis and Michelle Cromwell, both 
students at Southern. 

Randy Minnick and Keith Tucker play guitar while Mark 
Bond and Gary Hoover have talenis on the keyboards. All four 
gentlemen also sing for Heart Song. But the man who has true 
control over the sound of the group is Mike Lorey, the mix 
board technician. 

Heart Song aims to tour with Destiny, the Christian drama 
company of Southern, and visit Adventist academies and chur- 
ches throughout the Southern Union. Heart Song is also open 
to performing sacred concerts in the local area. 

For concert date arrangements call Michelle Cromwell at 
238-2189. Heart Song focuses on a music ministry for young 
people and those young at heart. Concert possibilities are sub- 
ject to Ihe Destiny tour schedule and personal academic 
schedules since members of Heart Song are Southern students.

To keep you up on the latest Southern sports, we are 
proud to announce a new sports developmenton our 
lovely campus here in southern Tennessee. The new 
sports rave, "Six Balls of Fun", developed and play 
tested by Ed Cheneweth and Neal GaLion, was condev- 
ed on a biistery afternoon in October. 

The game is relatively easy to leam; because of this 
fact it is destined forlheWide World of Sports, so jump 
on the bandwagon now! 

The game consists of two players, three tennis courts, 
and eight tennis balls. The play testers, after naming 
[he game "Sit Balls of Fun" realized they were actual-

Matdng A Difference 

[ received a phone caU lasl night. . . . This is extraordinary due to the fact that 
I don't gel very many phone calls. 1 do, however, answer a lot of phone calls; indeed 
myriads of phone calls are made to my phone, so many you would think my dorm 
room is a junction for A.T. & T.. but they're always for my roommate. The only 
time 1 get to talk to someone is when a wrong number finds my phone and 1 initiate 
a conversation with a total stranger. This is usually short-lived though, due to the 
fact that I'm really not the person that the caller wanted to talk to in the first place. 

But last night I received a phone call; somebody specifically asked to talk to me. 
It was a special friend of mine who called just to ask me how 1 was and to hang 
in there with the newspaper. In T.T.T. (thats newspaper lingo for Total Talk Time), 
the conversation lasted about only two minutes, but it was the best two minutes of 
the entire day. I got quite a charge out of it. 

A two minute phone call is not much. It did not take a vast amount of effort to 
make that small gesture of friendship. But because someone took a little initiative 
and did something for me, as small as it was, my entire evening was brightened as 
a result of it. You know, it's the little things we do for people that make the big 
differences in our relationships with others. 

When is the last time you told someone that they were important and you ap- 
preciated ihem? Most of us are too complacent, too apathetic, too Laodicean, to 
tell somebody what they mean to us. We are too wrapped up in our own little ex- 

istence that we don't take the time to acknowledge the people that make oui 
worth living. 

It does not take anything major to let someone know that they're special. A smalll 
handwritten note dropped in their mailbox, or a smile and a word of encouragement I 
can perform radical miricles in a person's daily existence. 

Now don't get me wrong, 1 'm not preaching to convert everybody into a philosophy I 
of blind optimism where we all walk around with smiles on our faces uttering word; 1 
of good cheer all the day through. I, too, have met people who are the epitome of | 
optimism and will always try to say something positive though the world falls a 
them. . - they're aggravating to be around. 

No, my point is that we need to take a step back and realize that we can perform | 
great miricles of mental healing and increase the quality of life by simply undersia 
ding that it is the small tokens of friendship that we can perform almost every day I 
that make the greatest differences in a person's life, And isn't what we want 
in this life is make a difference?

The Wall 
Dear Editor, 

As I look out the window of the TLC where I work, 1 
am usually awed by what I see — the grassy rolling stretches 
that make Southern so famous. But today as 1 looked out 
all I saw was a grey brick wall. I am forced to ask, as 1 have 
heard many others, "Why?" 

All this "school improvement" has been very nice, and 
1 must compliment whoever is responsible. The road down 
to Brock, Wood, and So-Ju-Conian Halls has long needed 
repair. Thank you. I suppose that the faculty and village 
students badly needed a parking lot, and that the wall in 
front of Daniells Hall needed repairs also, but couldn't we 
have just stopped there? 

I have heard of plans to tear down Lynn Wood Hall, and 
I suppose the old "Tab" will be next. Then they'll have to 
start all over again with the dorms and the old "new" 
classrooms. Yes, improvement is never ending and at times 
necessary, but only when warranted. Why spend a lot of 
money on a wall we don't need (it's not a big land slide area) 
or want, so thai some poor soul, twenty years from now, 
can tear it down on account of "school improvements." 
Besides, brown stones don't go well with red brick, or is 
this just of sign of things to come? 

Trading Places 

Dear Editor: 

I'm writing about the editorial in last week's issue. I feel 
that the article hit very close to home with a lot of guys (in- 
cluding myself)- I have also heard that some girls on this 
campus cannot understand why guys don't date any more 
than they do (if at all). Well, the nickname of this college 
(Southern Matrimony College) may scare some of us guys 
off. I don't know for sure but it sounds like the girls got 
that nickname started. I mean, it could give us guys the 
wrong view (I hope) that the girls are trying to "snatch" 
IS up as fast as they can. 

But to be totally sincere and honest about the situation, 
1 believe a lot of the guys just want to make and be friends 
with the girls. I know from talking to a lot of my friends 
that they feel uncomfortable calling a girl up for a simple 
date to vespers. Why? Because they're afraid the giris may 
think he is coming on too strong or fast. Or they ask, "What 
if she doesn't like me at all?" Most of the guys just want 
to make new friends or gel to know someone better. 

In this day and age of ERA and women's liberation, why 
don't you girls call us guys up and ask us out. You don't 
e weekends to do that. If one of you 
girls really likes a guy, why don't you make his day by call- 

g him up lonighl. And tomorrow I bet you'll see him walk- 

g around two feet off the ground with a gleam in his eyes 

id a smile on his face.

on [he following day, conduct a Master 

Class workshop between 9:00 and 1 i :00

give opportunity to students to have their 
work critiqued. They may play pieces of 
music from any period in history. 

Yuko Hayashi is chairperson of ihe 
organ department at New England Con- 
servatory, and her frequent American ap- 
pearances have included national conven- 
[ions of Ihe Organ Historical Society and

Early Tuesday morning, at approx-

Bulimia: Another Kind 
of Addiction 

"Our bodies don'i redesign themselves 
because of current fashion," notes Dr. 
Robert L. DuPont, director of the Center 
for Behavioral Medicine in RockvjIIe, 
Maryland. Unfortunately, that is just 
what people suffering from bulimia 
would like them to do. 

Bulimia is, in effect, an addiction to 
food. Bulimics cannot control their eating 
habits, so they attempt to rid themselves 
of the calories they eat by purging. 
"Purging can come in a variety of ways," 
says Dr. DuPont. "Excessive exercise, 

commonly — self-induced vomiting." 

"Addicted to Food?", an anicle in the 
December 1986 issue of Lislen, takes a 
look at bulimia and shows how it cor- 
relates to other types of addictions. The 
article examines the causes and effects of 

and bulimics, 

"The person who becomes bulimic is 
someone who tries to control her weight 
by following a calorie-restrictive diet or 
even by going without food completely. 
Initially she succeeds, and she experiences 
a rise of self-esteem because she has solv- 
ed the problem," explains Dr. DuPoni. 
The behavior soon becomes compulsive, 
and the bulimic finds she can't stop the 

Bulimia is an addiction, like alcoholism 
or drug addiction. There is no cure — only 
recovery. "But bulimics are never really 
the same (after recovery)," says Dr. Du- 
Pont. "They are going to have a different 
relationship with food and eating forever

Week Of Prayer 

Next week. Southern CoUeee will experience a spiritual 
revival. Student week of prayer begins November 10 and con- 
tinues through November 14. The meetings begin at 8;00 p m 
and will be held in the CoUegedale church. The theme chosen 
is Heart Talk: straight talk about Christianity. 

A team of seven dedicated young men has been chosen to 
deliver the messages of the week. Monday, Mike Fulbright will 
begin the meetings with the topic Heartbeat (Christian life to- 
day, apathy or activity). The rest ofthe week holds topics that 
will prove to be just as interesting while motivating students 
into a closer and more serious relationships with the Lord. Mike 
Sinclair will deUver the message on Tuesday chapel, while Joe 
Rivera carries the torch later that evening. Doug Rowland 
Allan Martin and Kevin Pride will deliver the messages oil 
Wednesday, Thursday(chapel) and Thursday night respectively 
Finally, the culmination of the week sets Bob Folkenberg 
delivering the message "Heart Transplant." 

Wednesday night, a special day of prayer has been planned 
Students are asked to spend the day in prayer. The spiritualness 
of the school is the most important reason the specific day has 
been set aside for prayer. Bob Folkenberg, assistant chaplain 
and coordinator of the week of prayer also commented about 
the object of prayer for next week's revival. He said,"Weneed 
to start praying that week of prayer will really talk straight to 
us about Chnstianity." In addition to soliciting the prayers of 
the students he also added energetically, ' 'Tell everyone to come 
on downl We're gonna have a good ole time." Not only will 
you enjoy Student Week of Prayer, but a blessing lies in store 
for all who come.

The flags were up, the carpet was out and the people poured in by the bus loads! 
Alumni Homecoming '86 was here this past weekend, and if you happened to have 
had a weekend leave, here is whai you missed... 

The doll house was opened from 10 am lo 3 pm on Friday, October 31. for the 
beginning of registration. Jennifer Jones from the Development office carefully or- 
chestrated the operation. Eight hundred and ten families signed in and as the weekend 
progressed, the number of Alumni swelled to even greater numbers. Bob Lorren. 
the president of the Southern College Alumni Association, working with the Southern 
College Alumni Office, under the direction of Jack McClarty, put together an im- 
pressive weekend. Some of the highlights were: top-notch guest speakers, the Third 
Annual Founders' Day, an Alumni Talent show, sacred concerting, awards and a 
basketball game lo cap off the weekend activities. 

The Alumni of the Year award was given to two people this year. Buddy Fisher 
and David Taylor. The Young Alumni of the Year award went to Debbie McKee

Another bright spot in the weekend was Clarence Dortch. Clarence is 92 years old 
and has worked as a musician and director for many of our school systems. He was 
in attendance and sang for the funeral of Ellen G. White in 1913. 

Over 2000 people were fed on Sabbath at the Collegedale Academy gymnasium,

Students Crush Alumni 
in Basketball Game 

By Rob Shanko 

The Southern College student basket- 
ball team smashed the Southern College 
Alumni basketball team 74-55 in an 
action-packed game while cheering spec- 
tators supported both teams. 

After the Southern College Concert 
Band jogged through another round of 
the Star-spangled Banner, the second an- 
nual Alumni vs. students basketball game 
was under way. 

The game was held in the Southern 
College Gymnasium. The event got to a 
late Stan because of the Alumni talent 

It was a closely matched game up un- 
til half-time with both teams exchanging 
turns at having the lead. The students 
were a httle clumsy to began with insisting 
that the alunrni have the ball. The alum- 
ni, a little upset, displayed their aggres- 
sion by fouling Steve Vogel and Rob 
Bovell, which, with theu- foul shots, push- 

r the alumni at half 

ed the students 

time 38-37. 
The Southern College Gymnastics team 

presented a tremendously patriotic half 

time show before the teams came back 

for the final clash to determine who the 

victors would be. 
The student seemed to have loosened 

up and they were now playing as a team. 

Joey PoUom was the lead scorer in the se- 
cond half of the game for the students 
with his outside jump shot. Eric Mock 
did an equal amount of good work for, 
the alumni. But when it came down to' 
team work the students knew how to han- 
dle the ball. 

With three seconds left on the board 
Mark McKenzie, while under heavy 
coverage, managed to gracefully execute 
the only slam dunk the entire evening en-

■'Possibly the best team I've ever seen liere at SC," said Coach Evans of Mike I

these two running options in the backfield, added with Rob Bovell. Bob Murdock 
and Hershberger as receivers this team was unstoppable. 

When asked about how the offense was run. Coach Evans said "We jus 
what they gave us. if they covered us deep we would run short down-and-out 
If they covered us short we would go long." 

However, as incredible as this offense sounds. Coach Evans said the key ti 
success was the defense. Only an average of 12 points per game were allowed by the I 
defense. Bobby Forquer and Jim Malone were the stars intercepUng passes with the 
style and grace of Ronnie Lott or Raymond Clayborn. These two continued with |

International Food Fair Well Done 

By Vanessa Radovan 
"Oh, my stomach...," that was heard among many people last Sunday at the 
I Food Fair. Yes, the food fair is finally over and hopefully the tummy aches as well 
I (hee heel). I am proud to say that the food fair was a success! It was great seeing 

■ everyone having a good time, some of you looked hke pigs and sows (that was 

■ for you. Penny & Alisa). Best of all was the enthusiasm from all of you who par- 
|licipatcd or helped in some way. It is impossible to have done the food fair alone 

s. lot of credit should go to Mrs. Jan Rice and Elder Jim Herman. We could not 
e done It without them!! Also a big thanks goes to all of the churches, clubs, 
fend last mmute fill-ins in the preparation of the food and booths; all of you who 
fcerformed in the talent section; Allan Martin for being the MC; the strawberry 
■estival staff for die sound system; and those of you who served food, set up, cleaned 
[.p, and stayed up making this food fair a total success! I would also like to thank 
a & Elena for "keeping me sane" during the past few weeks. I really thought 
5 going to lose it. (Okay, I am going to stop saying this "academy 
|peech) But one more. Praise God He saw this through!! 

In conclusion, the food was great, the talent was great, and if you weren't there 
Ivell, you can redeem yourself next year by attending the food fair. Finally, those

grim reality of being broke. But like r

We traveled up to Scotland and back 
for 1200 miles. It took us a week and we 
spent fifteen dollars apiece. Scotland and 
England were beautiful. The people were 
great, but that trip will be remembered 
not for Scotland or England's beauty or 
the hospitatliiy of the people or the cold 
night out in the rain. That trip will be 
remembered for the important lesson 
God taught John and me, which com- 
pletely changed my outlook on 

You are probably wondering how a 
story about two hitch-hikers can be ap- 
plied to life here in happy valley, 
Southern College. Good question, and 
I'm glad you are asking that question 
because I am going to tell you how it will 
apply right now. 

Out trip was great on the way up to 
Scotland. But when it came time to come 
back, things began to grow bleak. It was 
Easier Sunday and we were out hitch- 
hiking. At about noon all the churches 
emptied out and the people drove by in 

their cars in what seemed like a pomp and 
righteous parade. That day we ended up 
walking 23 miles. Finally we tried hitch- 
hiking again and two hippies from France 
picked us up. Later a chain-smoker who 
refused to open his window picked us up, 
followed by an atheist. I remember spen- 
; city trying to get 



I look back o 
trip and to see who had picked 
Atheists, hippies, business men, 
agnostics.. .but only one Christian out of 
the dozen or so rides had picked us up! 
What was Christianity all about 
anyway? Could it be that those hippies, 
who probably knew nothing about Jesus, 
were better Christians that those ctaim- 
irig the title of Christians? Where were the 
Christians? We didn't get a ride for 
hours, for as I look back, I believe the 
Lord was trying to drive a point home to 
me and teach me something about Chris- 
tianity. That's the lesson 1 was talking 
about. Finally it crystalized~the impor- 
tant thing about Christianity was not 
church going, or righteous doing or not 
doing, or abstaining from evil things; no! 
The essence of Christianity, the base ele- 
ment of Christian life was love in action! 
Christianity had to be practical or else it 
was useless. 

My point is, if Christianity does not af- 
fect every minute of your day, then your 
Christianity is worthless. Christianity is 
not something you put on or take off at 
will. It's a way of life. And as I stood out 
there on that Scottish road I realized that 
that is where Christianity comes alive. It 

comes alive when you live it. That's what 
it is all about. And you know, when I 
look ai the life of Christ I see that I'm 

The greatest lover of all times was the 
Son of God. He lived love from sun-up 
to sun-up. All day, healing, forgiving, 
listening to and talking to those who were 
depised by all people. Christ lived love 
and He commands us to do the same. 
Matt. 22:37^0 talks about the two great 
commandments: to love God and to love 
your fellow man. And He practiced what 
He preached, all the time. And the thing 

taught us our lesson and \ 

for a ride home which w 

miles a»ay. Sure enough, we 601 a rii" I 

We were so exciled, and the most =™ 

ing thing is that he took us all the^f'' 


only plannmg on going 60 miles fo" 

vacation. It was incredible. He was ai 

mamac ai the wheel, going from 1 10 mni, I 


1 do the f 
Everyday-all the time-then we will tru- 
ly be Christians. Before any of God's 
laws make sense, or any of the worship 
sevices He designed, or before the title of 
a Christian really means something, we 
must first love. And when that happens, 
the worid will know we are Christians. 
Not by our laws or habits, but by our 
love. That is what makes Christianity real 
and exciting, love. 

That is the lesson the Lord taught me 
that day up on the Scottish slopes. Chris- 

ly right here in happy valley. Realize that 
you are not a Christian because you do 
certain things, but because you live 
Christ's love. 

There is some bad news, though, I feel 
1 need to break to you. We are by nature 
selfish people; kind of loveless at heart. 
When 1 realized that Christianity was love

So, our hightest goal tommorow, ihi

when I was hitchhiking. How about you? 
Is your Christianity a bunch of do's andL

Iseconds till the darkness will prevent me from writing. The mountain in front of me 
is bright with the reds, ambers, and yellows of fall. A sprinkling of green trees adds 
a dark accent to the beautiful colors. It is cool, peaceful and very beautiful. Here

e and thinking what it all means. 
What do I really know of life? Born without choice to parents not of my choosing, 
■given a name and raised in a family; all without a choice. I was taken to church and 
Jiaught about God. I was sent to a church school and learned what the church and 
ty wanted me to learn; all in the absence of choice. Somewhere, somehow I learn- 
) think, to question, to search for understanding. What can I discover in my 
(few short years of life? I live with questions unanswered and still so many questions 
yet unasked. What do I really know? 

I have lived 24 years upon the face of a very old planet. I am 1 person out of AVi 
[billion presently living. So many millions and billions before me - so many billions 
that will come after. Within 50 years I'll be buried in the ground. So, what does my 
iUfe mean? What do those billions of lives mean? Can I ever know? 
I I know this. I experience life through a worid given me by sight, touch, taste, smell 
■and hearing. I feel a hard, cold rock, a soft, warm pillow; I smell a rose, or a child's 
■vomit, I see a beautiful mountain in the distance or a vulture eating a dead rabbit 
■off of a Texas highway. What is good, pretty, sweet, what is bad, ugly, putrid? Are 

■ these words opinions or realities? I gain belief in these things as facts because most 
I all of the creatures like me, agree with me. So I believe that my sensory experiences 

: subjective, but real, and the things outside of myself are real facts because 
■others agree with my perception. The people who really see things differently are 
■locked away because they are dangerous to the rest of us (and rightly so). As with 
■sensory experience, is learning and knowledge, a reality that is simply a common 
I perspective (or common ignorance). How do we know, how do we test it? 

ur own experience of course. It is all we have that is completely knowable. 

.0 the past, to history, to what I was taught, to what others have learned for

bthers have discovered truth? Ultimately I can not know. I can only weigh and measure 
t-ith whatever ability was given me, and then guess and the believe. Then I use that 
pelief as a framework for constructing and organizing knowledge and new beUefs.

've learned that there are many ways to attempt achieving happiness and mean-

ing. I've found they all were short term and failures. 

For many years I played the perfect "goody-goody" Adventist. There was no hap- 
piness there, only pride and ego and superiority. I've tried being a good friend and 
having lots of them, but you always go home alone. I've tried some secular ways 
and found them empty and meaningless. I've tried a relationship with Christ to make 
me happy and it did not work. Life was still so difficult. I've tried the happiness 
that can be found with a woman's body. But that only lasts a few hours. I've tried 
the happiness of serious relationships though ultimately I'm still stuck alone within 
myself. We ail are. 

Trapped in a shell of flesh and blood we use words and tone, expression and touch 
to try to communicate our insides to other minds that are, like ours, uapped alone, 
in shells of flesh and blood. We try and escape our aloneness and yet even with our 
great desire we do it poorly. We fail to understand and we fail to be understood. 
We can not get inside their mind and feeUngs nor can they get inside ours. In the 
quiet moments we realize this. It is not pleasant and so we avoid this realization. 
We surround ourselves with activity: studies, work, play, dating, music in the car, 
music in our heads (walkmans), mindless chatter on the phone, reading, writing, play- 
ing cards (even sohtaire), weigh tlifting, ninning, aerobics. Activity, activity, please, 
no tune to think, no time to meditate upon this state of being, this life, this aloneness, 
this meaninglessness— this is what we cry out for. 

Rehgion often becomes yet another way to escape dealing with the reality of life. 
The reahty of discovering for ourselves what this life is about. Religion is often just 
another attempt to find happiness through externals. I use God to make me happy. 
I use rehgion and church and my Adventist culture to create happiness and meanmg 
for me. But this too is without meaning. This too is an escape from the hard ques- 
tions this finite, lonely life demands asking. 

Our greatest desire is to be understood, to escape aloneness. We try and try, yet 
we never escape it. We always go to sleep inside ourselves, alone. Marriage doesn't 
change this. If you think marriage is the magic that transcends our separateness from 
each other think of your parents relationship or your friends' parents. No, we are 
trapped m shells of decaying flesh, crying out to be touched yet we can never truly 
escape our bodies' cages. We will always be alone. Life will always, in the quiet times, 
show itself empty and meaningless. 

In this understanding the hope of real answers presents itself. There is only one 
outside of me who can ever understand all that I think and feel, all that makes me, 
the me I am. God is the only hope. He is the only one who can really understand, 
the only one and the only thing that can provide meaning and the peace of real 
togetherness. All of the externals of this worid, religion mcluded, are only images 
of the meaning that is God and only inside of yourself in your heart and mind can 
the answers be given. The answers thai provide meaning, the peace of being 
understood, love. And this can only be found in the quiet times, the still, in pain 
and in emptiness. The externals of this worid, all of the pursuits to find happiness, 
chase the answers far, far away. Few ever touch those answers. (I have not). Few 
even try. We are aU too busy searching for the thmgs outside us that will make the 
being inside us happy. If you want to begin the search, or if you feel I've written 
sacrilegious words, try reading your Bible and stan with Ecclesiastes.

The greatest source of information in this laboratory if obtained, not from the 
common rat, but from the human being. The experiments that have been conducted 
lately are social experiments. How does one group of people compare with another? 
The experiment going on at this time is a comparison of attitudes of groups from 
UTC and SC towards certain social issues. Unfortunately the lab cannot keep ajiimals 
as it used to because of the need for classroom space, but studies have been done 
on the effect of alcohol on goldfish, and cognitive conditioning has been done on 
rats and gerbils. (It was found that the rat was smarter than the gerbil.) 

The data analysis is processed on the microcomputer, which seems to be the main 
tool. According to Dr. Colvin, the microcomputer has brought power into the 
transforming undergraduate research labs. The computer is able 
record data, but also to analyze and produce statisEics. Similater pro-

The process of research and data collection is what one might call busy work. It 
mvolves a selection of a topic, a hypothesis, a study (including reading and random 
sampling of populations), and finally collection and analysis of the data. 

The idea of doing a study using this lab is not necessarily finding a new theory, 
but learning. Even if your hypothesis is wrong and the answer false, one still has 
an answer, and it could be a clue leading to the discovery of other hidden skeletons.

■ if their very 

School Spirit Speculation 

I'll never forget the screaming. Three thousand teen-ager 
lives depended upon raising the decibel level of their voices higher than it had ever 
been before. Cheering, chanting, waving their arms up and down with clinched fists 
as if possessed by some spirit from within to destroy an opposing school. 

In the center of this encircling crowd was a banner stolen from the rival institu- 
tion. As the sign was held up the multitude screamed and began throwing anything 
loose or nearby. 

A few enthusiastic teens up from pulled out aerosol cans and cigarette lighters 
creating homemade blow torches. As the sign caught fire a crazed, glassey-eyed look 
came over the entire crowd. The shrieking and hooting crescendoed with the flames 
and as the fire consumed the sign the rhythm of the chanting increased. 

When the rival insignia was completely burned to ashes a great roar went up from 
the host of teens gathered there and they all moved out in one force to do battle 
with the opposing school in the form of a football game. 

School spirit. . . a term used to describe the attitude and feelings an individual 
has towards the educational institution that he attends; and these kids had it. 

If you investigate the programs here at Southern you will not find anything even 
vaguely resembling the above described activity, mainly because we do not operate 
an intercollegiate sports program. That is what the majority of public schools use 
as their main motivator for generating their school spirit. Many students here have 
the philosophy that Southern College would do well to also develop an intercollegiate 
sports program to ii.itiate school spirit. That is placing the majority of responsibility 
10 generate school spirit on the HPER division. If we did that I don't believe we 
have a very good focus on what school spirit is. 

The HPER division has an excellent intramural program combined with a vast ar- 
ray of specialty sports events that stretch across the entire school year, (never a dull 
moment as it were). The potential for involving every student in an athletic program 
and to generate its own share of spirit is alive in the HPER division. The only lack- 
ing ingredient, as it will be for any program designed to spark excitement and en- 
thusiasm, is student participation. 

However, I do not believe that the general air of apathy so prevelant on our cam- 
pus today is even remotely associated with our sports program. It is, in fact, due 
to the many administrative renovations in the high leadership positions that Southern 
College has undergone in the last five years and the changes in ideals, expectations 
and programs that the students have had to tolerate that have accompanied these 

We, the students, have not had a long lasting, solid form of leadership lo rally 
behind and support in five years. Without this kind of foundation I do not believe 
that school spirit can healthfully and to any significant degree exist. With so many 
changes we have no time to settle in with an administration, get comfortable with 
their leadership, and then build school spirit. 

The solution to this problem is three-fold. To begin with we, as students, need 
to be aware of the situation at hand. Due to the administrative changes that have 
occured we have very little genuine foundation with which to build our school spirit 
upon. This is not a situation to be discouraged about, but simply be aware of so 
we can do something about it. 

The responsibility to do something about it rests on three organizations; the Stu- 
dent Association being the first. 

It is the S.A. officers' direct responsibility to provide a medium for student par- 
ticipation by creating exciting programs and activities that emphasize and bring the 
student body to the fore-front. This could be dramatically improved upon this year. 

Also responsible for helping to generate school spirit is the administration. It is 
nothing less than their duty to be involved, extra-curriculariy as well as in class, with 
the students. They need to be visible and active participants in S.A. functions and 
other areas of student life. (This may even mean attending a few chapels). 

Lastly, the greatest degree of responsibility for creating school spirit has to fall 
into the hands of the student body. .School spirit comes from and finds its definition 
as to what it really is within the student body itself. 

Dear Editor, 

In response to the editorials of the past two weeks, 
we feel that light could be shed on the "Southern 
Matrimony College Controversy." There are two sides 
to every issue and this my dear fiiends is no exception. 

1 . The female perspective: Many girls come lo college 
wanting to further their education and broaden their 
horizons, but yes, some come to find a husband. The 
girls actively involved in their education lend to not 
become distressed by the lacksadaisical attitude of the 
males on campus, but the giris looking for a husband 
find this situation most distressful. They primp and put 
on their best manners only to be shunned by unimpress- 
ed males. Sitting around waiting for that perfect guy 
to make the telephone ring is a long and agonizing pro- 
cess, making the unsuspecting female develop nerves, 
—■ the patience of Job. Which maybe these 

part of God's plan, because the naive 
find herself in the position of wife, 
oman, gardenkeeper, housecleaner, 
ana men must put delicious meals on the table several 
times per day, followed only by the care and feeding 
of the animals (which may or may not be her family.) 

2, The male perspective— while dodging marriage anx- 
ious females, they're trying to find a major that will 
hopefuUy provide enough monetary suppon where they 
can enjoy the finer things in life: skiing, sailing, driv- 
ing a fas, car, and an exciting nigh. on the town. In 
reality, they are faced wiih exam- 

School spirit is looking to and emphasizing all the positive aspects fo your sch 
and not dwelling on the negative. Its being proud and vocal about the things T 
like within the institution instead of complaining about it's faults. 

By the same token, ignoring the downfalls of your school will do no more 
generate spirit than apathy will. Making a voice to try and implement change wher' I 

s much of school spirit as cheering for the all nigi 
lake a differences 

change is needed is every bit a 
Softball t 

Participating, getting involved any way you c 
campus is school spirit. Complaining and complancency has r 
of the student who wants to be proud of the school he attends. 

We at Southern are in a very dangerous situation. Apathy has taken a strong hold I 
and settled in over the majority of the campus. If allowed to go unchecked and 
its full course nothing less than a complete cessation of our school can be expected 1

From 1939 to 1941 he was both premier 
and foreign minister but stepped down as 
premier in 1941 so Stalin could con- 
I ^^°"aate his power by assuming the office, 
other claims to fame, he is 

credited with having ordered the mass 
production of bottles filled with infiam- 
mable liquid that could be used against 
German tanks. The Germans nicknamed 
the bottles "Molotov cocktails." He is 
probably best known in the west for sign- 
ing a non-aggression pact with Nazi 
Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribben-

It Only Takes A Spark 

By Sieve Dobias 

As one wanders through the back roads of southeastern Tennessee, he slowly 
descends into a tranquil setting of Happy Valley, Collegedale. He is instantly sur- 
rounded in a mystic peaceful setting. New friends are made. Challenges of classes 
toil on him day after day. Slowly, his blanket of security surrounds him as he becomes 
totally absorbed in his homework, friends, and work. Fears of getting involved, speak- 
mg out, demonstrating, etc., seem to just disappear as the shroud of apathy encom-

Of all years to be apathetic. 1986-87 should not be one. True, the year is a little

we drudging along under the heavy burden of trying to comply with the new regula-

I then, Renee promptly came to my rescue by meekly sug- 
Igesting that the girls' dean could help, not that I 
■ couldn't do it, of course! We turned towards the dean 
land I breathed a huge hidden sigh of relief! 

Regaining my confidence, we made it to the car and 
vere on our way. With directions in hand we both tried 
decipher our trek. We smoothly accelerated into the

causing the car to jump into convulsions. Glancing in 
the rear view mirror, I glimpsed the horror of my room- 
mate, who was following me by now, swerve to the 
shoulder to avoid eating my bumper for supper. With 
all of the adrenlin pumped into my right leg by now, 
I was surprised it didn't puncture the floorboard. 

Miraculously, control was somehow regained and I 
realized the distance between my front bumper and his 
rear end was approximately 1/100 of a centimeter. I 
grabbed my face from the windshield and settled back 
in the seat with another huge sigh of relief. Turning now

for signs of Rock City to no avail. Traveling up the 
mountain, my roommate had taken the lead and seem-

reached our destination for we had found a huge stone 
encased building with lots of unfamiliar cars surroun-

out it was a church, the Lookout Mountain Presbyterian

seemed hours following the directions they had given 
us. We passed a golf course and followed a road that 
wound down the country side of Lookout Mountain. 
All the while we kept our eyes peeled for the Country 
Club. It was only at this point that we realized that we 
had been given directions to the Golf Club instead of 
the Country Club! 

With my keen sense of direction we continued to 
wander, lost into oblivion on Lookout Mountain. The

Southern Hosts Clinic

By Ted Evans 

Three hundred enthusiastic gymnasts arrived on our campus from thirteen schools 
last Wednesday to begin the 1986 Gymnastic Clinic sponsored by Southern College. 
The clinic included two days of instruction. Sabbath services, and a spectacular show 
on Saturday night. 

The clinicians included gymnastic stunl specialists Scott Elliot, Lee Wray and Wendy 

Southern College Gymnastic Team Coach Ted Evans coordinated the clinic. Many

Intercollegiate Activities Evaluated 

By Bob Kamieneski 

In recent months the question has 
arisen concerning school spirit on out 
campus. Many wonder why there is ap- 
parently so much school spirit in other 
college and university campuses but very 
little on our campus. This idea probably 
falls in line with the philosophy that 
Christians do not smile much or have a 
lendancy to carry long faces around with 
ihem. li IS my opinion that we must look 
to see where school spirit is developed 

Does a school only have spirit and 
viiality If ihey are raiding dormitories, 
burning books and records, or hanging 
underwear from flagpoles? I think not 

On most college campuses school spirit 
IS generated from athletics. The focal 
pomt of school spirit is generaily around 

perceives such programs from a 
philosophical point of view. It is believ- 
ed by many in the Seventh-day Adventist 
school administration that our focus 
should be elsewhere. 

The trend in developing interscholastic 
and intercollegiate athletic programs is 
growing within the Adventist denomina-

programs, music programs and spiritual 
programs. Many departments on campus 
also have active clubs. School spirit is a

It the high quality 
a! programs conducted on 
iiic campus of Southern College does in 
fact fulfill all the above. 1 believe the 
students who help to develop school spirit 

paricipating in campus programs. This is 
school spirit. 

To gel involved in iniercollegiaie sports 
at a time when many colleges and univer- 
sities are questioning the value of their ex- 
isting progams would be foolhardy at 
best. Our school system is not financial- 
ly set up for such programs

If our philosophy was the development

the over all mission of the school. Under j 
those circumstances I would welcome tl

feel Ihey could enhance school spirit whi

'Those of You, With or Without Dates, 
You'll Understand!'' 

By Brent Van Arsdell 

I ate lunch with some mad women four times last week. They were mad at the 
men of S.C; mad that they hadn't gotten asked out to the banquet. One girl said 
she got dates from some out of town men, but none from Talge. I quickly drew a 
hammer and sickle on a paper napkin, threw it on the girls side of the table and 
declared the S.C. cold war. Then I did the political thing and set out to find a way 
lo reduce intra-dorm tensions. It's just like in "real" politics — It ain't easy! 

Your mother hopes that college will be a great proving ground and a "hunting 
field." She wants you to be well prepared for a career and she wants you to find 
what I will call, "a lasting relationship." Why are you at S.C. anyway? If the Chris- 
tian environment here was perfect and the faculty better than Harvard, would you 
still came to S.C. if it was a school for only your sex? Is it dates, a Christian educa- 
tion, or spouses that we are after? Is, "All of the above" an option? 

Imagine explaining love S.C. style to someone who knows nothing about how the 
Ameriankski get together to get married. You might say, "Well a guy calls up a girl 
and asks her out. If he likes her and she thinks he's ok, they'll go out again, if not, 
the guy wiU call someone else the next Saturday night." Does it sound Uke the perfect 

Why is the "satisfaction with social life" quotient, as measured by my unofficial 
lunch line survey, so low? The people are here, they just aren't getting together. I 
think that part of the problem is how students view the purpose of dating. Is dating 
just for fun, oris it something that people do in order to get married? Having "com- 
mitment" in your mind set is probably the responsible thing lo do, but it can ruin 
a first date. It is a rare man at S.C, who will admit that he is not just "dating around." 
To admit that you are "looking" seems to bring to mind "Desperate Senior Theo 
Major Seeking Nursing Major Who Plays the Piano and Sings." 

In reality, what we do with the Joker and who we call up and go out with, even- 
tually gets a loi of S.C. students to the allar. It's just that getting there, and not 
getting there, leads a lot of students on an emotional ride. Our method of marriage 
IS not tougher than you think; it's tougher than you wish it was. Women may be 
inierested in knowing that some of the "Men of Taige" don't date much because 
ihey realize that they aren'l good husband material (no job prospects) yet. Ok— so 

cy to "choose 'em from a good safe distance." I call this the deadly serious approach 
to dating. Don't go out with someone if you don't think you could marry her. The 
built in flaw is that you end up deciding if a person is marriage material without 
any idea of what is more than skin and maimers deep. The unfortunate result is that 
20 percent of the girls get about 80 percent of the invitations. Phone calls go to the 
gtiod looking and sometimes the pleasantly talkative. 

To admit that you are "looking" 
seems to bring to mind "Desperate 
Senior Theo Major Seeking 
Nursing Major Who Plays the 
Piano and Sings." 

I have two suggestions. First, try God, He has the answers even if you don't know 
all the questions. Second, try to talk to the person you Uke. To be interesting, be 
interested in the person and what he or she likes, even if it is something crazy like 
building airplanes or ham radios. 

Remember that there are no simple solutions and there are no magic buttons. There 
are only intelligent choices which, made one day at a time, will make your life more 

Probably the n 

effective killer of social satisfaction on this campus is the t{

Turkeys A ttack VillagA 
In Mexico 

Late Saturday night, a vicious gang of 
Leftist turkeys attacked the peaceful 
village of Pueblo, Mexico, killing 18 
villagers and inflicting wounds on hun- 
dreds more. The reason for this outburst 
of violence was unknown until an inter- 
view with Rambird, the leader of these 
vicious guerrillas, revealed that the attack 
was prompted by the villagers annual at- 
tacks on these "helpless" birds. Accor- 
ding to Rambird, the villagers have, in the 
past few years, been trapping and

Grundset Visits 
Yukon To Observe 
Rare Breed Of Turlteys 

E.O. Grundset, better known as the 
"big bird man" in ornithological circles, 
just returned from an impromtu trip to 
the Yukon to observe a rare breed of bird 
known as the Abominable Snow Turkey. 
The mysterious Meleagrididae was last 
seen by an Eskimo fisherman in Fair- 
banks, Alaska. When asked to show 
evidence of his sighting, a pile of bones 
was produced. "It was Thanksgiving," 
said the festive fisherman, "So I had to 

Grundset took with him several 
students: Brian Sparks, Benjie Sanchez, 
Brett Hadley, and Clyde Bloom. Clyde 
is not a student, but went along just for 
his ability to drive, bird watch, talk on 
the C.B. and hum "Rockin Robin" all 

"These are the best bird people I've 
ever had in my orinthology class" com- 
mented Grundset, "Especially Brian 
Sparks, he thinks like a bird." Clyde 
Bloom went on to say, "Yeah, I guess 
you could call him a real bird brain." 
Clyde was later taken to the emergency 
room at Erlanger to have his face grafted 
back on. 

Once in the Yukon, the band of bird- 
watchers took at once to the wild out- 
back in search of the Abominable Snow 
Turkey. Eariy on in the hunt Benjie San- 
chez alarmed the group believing he saw 
the allusive aves hiding in the underbrush, 
but it turned out to be an old fishing lure. 
Determined that he saw the bird Benjie 

took off into the underbrush and was not 
heard from again. He is believed to of 
been carried off by Big Foot or a Kodiak 
bear in heat. Rumor has it that Benjie, 
bear and cubs are all doing fine and plan 
to move to Point Barrell Alaska, where 
there is a Taco BeU. 

Eventually the turkey was sighted by 
Brett Hadley. "I really didn't find it on 
my own," commented Hadley, "I was 
talking to some teen-age eskimos when 1 
noticed Grundset shaking violantly; it 
looked like he was gong into convulsions. 
He was pointing towards the sky and 
there it was, this huge turkey standing 
ominously before us. 

The Abominable Snow Turkey is ten 
times larger than a normal turkey, 
something Grundset failed to mention to 
the class. As the band of birders realized 
their desperate situation they began to 
run, but it was too late. With an ' 'Oh my 
stars!" from Grundset, the oversized aves 
swooped down and carried off Clyde. All 
seemed desperate until Grundset, taking 
control fo the situation, leaped from a 
tree landing on the turkey. Amidst flut- 
tering feathers and "Oh my stars" a 
heated battle took place. But as the dust 
settled, Grundset, Clyde and a box of 
chicken IVlcNuggets were all that was left. 

Grundset and the class returned to 
Southern in time for a tremendous 
Thanksgiving dinner with the largest But-

According to one of the surviving

village about 1:00 a.m. and then began 
to advance, breaking into stores and

shooting anyone who tried to stop them.

ing, we could safely stay here without threat to Hfe or drumstick. Besides, turkeys 
iove Little Debbie Oatmeal pies. 

Accent: Do you attend classes here at Southern College? 

T. Gobbler: Oh, yes! I love going to school here. My favorite class is ornithology. 
Accent: Rumors have been circulating around campus that you will be running for 
Siudent Association president next semester. Are these stories true? 

T. Gobbler I am planning to officially announce my campaign for Southern College 
SA president after Christmas. My brother. Wish Bone Gobbler, wants to take over 
the newspaper, and my cousin, Chick Butterball, is running for student service 


Accent: If elected president, what changes would you make around campus? 

T. Gobbler I;d like to initiate bird seed breaks and organize Gobbling Bands to visit 
the local retirement coops. To encourage more respect for the feathered folk on cam- 
pus, 1 fee! it is important that we have a Poultry History Week. But by far the most 
important item on my political agenda is naming the biology trail "The Benjamin 
Franklin Memorial Walk" in honor of the great American hero who stood firm in 
support of the turkey as the national bird. 
Accent: I hear you boycotted badminton class last semester. Why is that? 

I'm not sure how it happened, but 
many years ago my ancestors started a 
tradition. I should say they became a 
traditon. They basically lived up to their 
name by becoming the main course for 
an American holiday-Thanksgiving. 

Ben Franklin tried to save us by mak- 
ing our family (Meleagridinae) the na- 
tional bird. That fell through, and we 
ended up in a very embarrassing position 
on the tables of thankful people across 
the nation. Do you realize how mortify- 
ing it is for us to see our relatives up 
there-plucked, decapitated, basted, bak- 
ed and STUFFED? You know, you never 
see the Bald Eagle eaten with cranberry 
sauce. . . Isn't it weird how a twist of fate 
can change the course of history? 

Anyway, now that you know how I feel 
about the fowl play invovled, let me ex- 
plain how I feel about Thanksgiving in 

I find it amusing that holidays are 
always accompanied by large doses of 
festive foods (the kind that turkey Mark 
McFaddin always eats). But I think I get 
the biggest gobble out of Thanksgiving. 
The week before Thanksgiving, moms 
and grandmas go shopping especially for 
that sumptuous Thanksgiving dinner. 
Yeah, it's a big deal-they have to pick 
out a special turkey (they wouldn't want 
me unless they like lots of thigh) or make 
a trip to the local dispensers of vegetarian 
illusions to pick up some "mock" turkey 
(I've always wondered who they think 
they're making fun of). 

'Tb the season for Americans to spend 
lots of time and money to buy tons of 
food, slave in the kitchen for hours, and 
then gorge themselves. Of course, the 
gorging part lasts all day. Dad and Un- 
cle John watch football from the dinner 
table so they will not miss a play while 

getting up to slice another piece of 
pumpkin pie. And when these activities 
have concluded, you crazy humans are 
ready to eat "turkey" sandwiches while 
decorating the house for Christmas 
(another excuse to eat). 

The questions 1, as a very concerned 
turkey, would like to ask are: How does 
eating excessively express our gratitude to 
God? Does consuming massive amounts 
of yams and cranberry sauce in any way 
show our appreciation for what God has 
done for us? 

I feel that we should do something for 
him to say "thank you "- we should start 
giving instead of taking. What can we 
do? you ask. Well, my brilliant mind, 
which is packed tightly into a very small ' 
skull, has come up with the solution. 
Since eating lots of food, especially meat, 
is bad for you anyway, let the food go 
free. Send the cranberries home. Don't 
pick that pumpkin. And most important- 
ly, raid a few turkey farms to show how 
much you appreciate life. Honor a 
turkey. Make him your official bird. 
Thank God for giving life to such a 
beautiful nad intellectual creature. Play 
with us- we love Trivial Pursuit. In fact 
we're thinking of forming our own 
Turkey Trivia team. Give a bird a break 
and celebrate life! 

Think of your cousin Sue (pretend you 
like her). How would you feel if, on 
Thanksgiving Day, you saw her thrown 
on a silver tray, deviod of bodily hair, her 
head totally gone, her body basted in real 
butter and seasoning until brown and her 
insides stuffed with rice dressing? Not a 
pretty sight is it? O.K., so it's really

Southern College 
Defeats Army 

CoUegedale, TN (SCPR) - Southern 
College, boasting its powerful foot- 
baU/basketball/rugby/dating team, blew 
the Army out of the field Sunday, in an 
all out effort on Sahly Field. The game, 
which took up most of the day, featured 
lour grueling events including football, 
basketball, rugby and dating - evems 
that kept Tri-Community Ambulances 
and the CoUegedale Police busy. Police 
Lt. Dennis Cramer, on the scene for the 
entire game, said that, as a rule, the game

(the team was composed of Southern Col-

events, offered this comment: "When it 
came to Southern College men, and the 
opportunities available, I had to admit: 
I was game!!!" Renou Korff, capuinof 
the SC team, said in retrospect that both 
teams performed like "officers and

men of valor. Said Korff: "Ek say, what

State Department 
Welcomes Khadafy 

Ft. Meade, Maryland (UPEye) - 
Secretary-of-State Geroge P. Shultz 
welcomed colonel Moammar Khadafy to- 
day at an undisclosed U.S. Army base. 

Khadafy, who received top security 
clearance from the State department for 
the visit, smiled for the T. V. cameras and 
thanked Secretary Shultz for the surpris- 
ingly warm welcom given him by the 
American media and the small crowd of 
250,000 protestors. He wasn't even a bit 
surprised, however, when a group of 
local gardeners, pausing from their work 
nearby, tried to mow him down with their 
Briggs and Strattons. 

Reagan Says SDI is 
Headed for SDS 

Washington (APE) - President 
Reagan, in a White House private 
chamber, confided today to an aide that 
the SDI (Strategic DeFence Systeme), a 
French-designed missile security system 
adopted by the U.S. government, is head- 
ed for SDS (acronym for suds). 
Mr. Reagan, asking that his comments re- 
main confidential, spoke from the White 

House official bath tub, saying he felt 
that the SDI missile detergent system was 
washed up. "Nancy and 1 feel that, until 
the French can clean up their act and pro- 
vide a more clean-sweep system, we can 
no longer allow our defense contracts to 
be laundered out."

Thanksgiving: The Way It Really Was. 

A long lime ago this very lime of year a special event took place between a group 
of Pilgrims and a group of Indians. It is a meaningful and well know story and I'd 

like to tell you a different side of it. 

The fall harvest was complete and to show their gratefulness to God the Pilgrims 
planned a Feast. A feast of Thanksgiving. In their gratefulness, love and sharing fill- 
ed iheir hearts and so they decided to invite a group of outsiders to join them. Yes, 
the locals (Indians). 

The big day arrived. The Indians came and with great interest and curiosity they 
greeted the Pilgrims at the feast's beginning. They wondered how these white people 
would celebrate the good harvest, the gift of the gods. 

The Pilgrims had argued in their town council about the best approach to take 
in dealing with these outsiders. The argument centered around the question of whether 
to just lei the Indians be Indian or to insist on them behaving by Pilgrim life and 
standards during the celebration. The Pilgrims knew their lifestyle was so superior 
to the Indians and they just had to share it. That's how the strongest supporters of 
the "Pilgrim Advantage" won out. They would require the Indians to conform to 
their lifestyle. This they figured would benefit the Indians greatly. 

The Pilgrims had an entrance gate set up at the edge of the village. As the Indians 
. came through it they were required to remove their decorative beads, their magic 
herb pouches, their animal teeth necklaces and even the warriors had to remove their 
feathers and the chief his feather head piece. The Indians were deeply offended but 
tolerated this strange white man behavior. 

The Indians were told to sit at the table. The Medicine Man spoke up and said 
they had to thank their gods before the meal or the next year's crop would be hurt. 
The Pilgrims looked hesitant but in a great display of understanding said they could. 
The Indians moved into a circle and began a rhythmic chant and then they began 
to dance. Dance? ! Yes they were dancing! ! The Pilgrims were horrified and quickly 
mobbed them telling them what a great sin dancing was. So they stopped, insulted 
and confused but still tolerant of these strange customs of the white men. 

They were told to sit down again. The braves did, while their women sat down 
behind them on the ground. Oh, those Pilgrim women screamed! The women were 
ordered to sit beside their braves. The women obeyed but looked confused and even 
frightened. The Indians were insulted but again gently tolerated the strange customs 
of these while people. The Indians were told to close their eyes for prayer but this 

they refused to do. The white man had proved himself far too strange t 

The food was brought out and the Indians also added their own foods to the tablel 
But the Pilgrims wouldn't eat their food. wasn't "Pilgrim food". So the root I 
and the corn and the venison stayed untouched by the white people. The Indians! 
especially the Indian women, were deeply hurt that all their preparation and work I 
and food was not appreciated. But they smiled and gently accepted the foul ti 
(but healthy) food of the Pilgrims. 

After the eating was over the Pilgrims began their customary afternoon nap The I 
Indians left. This was the best part of the Indians' day. They vowed t 
from these strange, arrogant, rude white people. 

The Indians didn't need to worry about the Pilgrims ■ they hardly ever saw them I 
because the Pilgrims never went out to see the Indians. They never went out to observe I 
how the Indians lived. They never tried to discover what they believed or why. They I 

e Indians. But •■ ^"■" : — > - ■■ ■ 

ow much bettei 
dians should adopt their "Pilgrim Advantage". 

It went on like this until late in the winter. It was a very long winter and the Pilgrims' I 
food ran out. They began to starve and to freeze to death. The Pilgrims were too L 
proud to go ask for help. They didn't want to admit that they could need anything I 
the Indians had or that there was any possibility that the Indians could teach them I 
something. Fortunately for the Pilgrims an Indian came by to get back som 
and feathers taken from him on his last visit and discovered their plight. 

The Indians' chief called the council together and they quickly organized a relief I 

Thanksgiving came again. It was a different Thanksgiving. They had the dance I 
and the whites joined in. The Indians closed their eyes this year for the white n 
prayer. They shared each others foods and they all sat at the table together without 
bad feelings. After the meaJ they played games and talked. Together they had learn- 
ed the "human advantage". They had learned it because the Indians still had com- 
passion and love for a people who had been demanding, condescending, and arrogant. 
Respect and compassion bring people together. Being "right" and being sure 
and rubbing it in people's faces drives them away. This year be thankful God forgives. 1

n combined with the monotonous voice of the teacher 
re in the classroom. As the teacher droned on I began 
to wonder whether or not to ask someone out for the weekend, but wait, would that 
be neccessary? Pushing next weekend aside I began to worry about the fast ap- 
proaching exam week. While thinking of upcomming finals I realize I must begin 
studying this week as well as Saturday night and all day Sunday if I'm going to pass. 
Tests are not the only thing entering my thoughts. The deadline for the>lc«nris this 
Tuesday night (actually Wednesday morning) and we still have 6 pages to lay out. 
With all these refleclions dancing around in my head my mind flashes ahead to 
Christmas vacation. Ah! Christmas vacation, no more studies, tests. Accent, and 

Life at college can become hectic at times. Worrying about the weekend activities, 
homework, tests and so on lends to wear us out. Christmas vacation gives us a chance 
to rest and forget about the everyday life at college. Most students go home, sleep 
most of the time, and watch T.V. and really forget about the true meaning of 
Christmas. But what is Christmas all about anyway? Many people feel Christmas 
IS decorating a tree, gelling and giving presents, and having a large Christmas dinner I 
with relatives. I feel there is a deeper meaning, one most of us forget about much | 
too often. The dictionary states that Christmas is a holiday celebrated by Christians 
as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus. God gave the worid its first Christmas pre- 
sent: His Son Jesus. Christ's birth on this earth was probably the best gift God could 
give us. Because through Christ's life, death, and His ressurection on this earth we 
) obtain the perfect gift, eternal life! "For God so loved the world that

Southern Kudos 

Dear Editor: 

In reviewing the semester, more specifically the 
Southern Accent, I have been pleased with its presenta- 
tion. Never before, at least in my three years here at 
Southern College, has tht Accent been out in August, 
during the first week of school. 

Also, the Accent editor, Brett Hadley, and the Accent 
staff have successfully created two twelve-page issues 
already this semester, with a sixteen-page Christmas issue 
due out, according to the editor. This shows me that the 
staff is working hard to put out a paper that is worth tak- 

Another improvement I have noticed is the new 
masthead used for the paper. It is modern and represents 
a fresh outlook. 

I feel x\ie Accent's improvements will be made com- 
plete when the staff realizes their dream for a desk-top 
publishing system, which has been pushed by Mr. Hadley. 
It is my understanding that this new system would make 
all laying-out obsolete, therefore cutting down con- 
siderably on staff and budget. The Apple Macintosh 11, 
with a page-maker, is the machine on which these im- 
provements would be accomplished. 

I commend the staff of the Southern Accent for their 
hard work. 

Chapel Complaints

Dear Mr. Hadley, 

I was both shocked, surprised, and 
students note the use of parentheses t

unrelated matter within parentheses-and this matter is about as 
unrelated as it can get] if -both" can be used to refer to both schools 
as in: "both Virginia and William AND Mary were placed on pro- 
bation" then why can't "surprised, shocked, and mortified" be 
releted to as "both"?) when I read the Thanksgiving issue of 
Southern ylcce/7/. (Just what kind of an accent is this, anyway?) 
shocked to read of horrid in-house scandal, international

was monified to realize that the Southern Accent (Southern 
) editor had at one time been the very same Brett Hadley 
ed tor of the Mount Pisgah Academy Skyliner. 
I- What really disturbs me is how much 1 enjoyed the issue. 
.0 see someone enjoying their job these days— or should 

r compatriot in foolissness, ^s well as other aspects of 

writing this short discourse regarding the S.A. 
Chapel program held on Thurdsay, Dec. 4. First of all, 
I want to commend the Accent staff for the creative way 
in which they illustrated the need for a new computer. 
However, I feel that the presentation did not reflect Chris- 
tian standards. Southern College is above all a Christian 
institution. We, as students, pay plenty of money to ob- 
tain a Christian education, and if we wanted to hear rock 
music at our Chapel programs, we certainly would not 
be spending the extra money to attend Southern College 
because we could get that type of program on a secular 
campus for considerably less money. 

What bothers me most is the image poitrayed by some 
of us students who are in leadership positions. Do we 
realize that our words and actions have a profound in- 
fluence on those around us? Are we offering the exam- 
ple that Christ would find appropriate? Are we emulating 
Christ or MTV? These are hard questions to answer, but 
each of us must resolve them for ourselves. 

I feel strongly that we at Southern College need to be 
an example to the world. We should not see how close 
we can get to the world and still claim to be Christ's 
foUowers. The Bible leaches, "Whether therefore you eat, 
or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 
I Cor. 10:31. This text could be a possible guide for us 

determining what is appropriate for a chapel program.

It took approximately 20 minutes to get 
the fire under control. 

One firefighter, Andy Buck, captain of 
Tri-Communily fire station number 5, 
was injured. While making his way 
through the house, a weak section of the 
floor collapsed underneath him. "His in- 
juries were not too bad," commented 
Michelle Ledford, a Tri-Community am- 
bulance worker, "just a few bruises." 

Eight trucks from all five Tri- 
Community fire stations responded to the 
call. The cause of the fire is under 

Dr. Norman R. Gulley, Professor of 
Religion at Southern College, wrote a 
book manuscript on the Seventh-day 
Adventist 27 fundamental beliefs, this 
manuscript was accepted nearly five 
months ago by the General Conference 
Ministerial Department, in consultation 
with the General Conference officers. It 
is to become the basis of an official doc- 
trinal book for professional readers 
within and beyond our church. Some 200 
readers are going over the manuscript. 
They represent persons from each of our 
world Divisions, and from every 
seminary and college. Dr. Gulley was in- 
vited to join the executive committee 
I commissioned to steer the book to 
J publication, hoped for in 1987. 
, The author arranged the 27 fundamen- 

tal beliefs in a logical order under six ma- 
jor headings-God, man, Christ, salva- 
tion, church and end events, such an ar- 
rangment is common in theological texts 
of other denominatins, and is also found 
in Loma Linda University Dr. Richard 
Rice's book The Reign of God, 1985 (not 
identical listing). The reason for 
systematizing the 27 to 6 was to reach 
those who read theology systematically. 
It is very much like scientists come to 
nature and make systems out of the ob- 
jective evidence found therein. When 
ideas cohere and their inner rationality is 
seen, the total picture of what the church 
stands for can hopefully be better 

It is this misunderstanding of Adven- 
tists that fired the project. Dr. Gulley. as 
a graduate student at Edinburgh Univer- 
sity (1967-70), while studying through 
Karl Earth's system (8.000 pages in which 
he unfolds doctrines in a Christ-centered 
manner), became convinced that Adven- 
tists should do the same. For still many 
designate us as a cult religion, a sect, 
meaning that we are less Christ-centered. 
And yet we are the people that were com- 
missioned to be foremost in uplifting 
Christ before the world (Gospel iVorkers 
p. 156) and told that "Every truth in the 
Word of God from Genesis to Revela- 
tion, must be studied in the hght that 
streams from the cross of Christ." 
(Gospel Workers p. 315) 

With this mandate in mind, Dr. Gulley. 
within space and time restrictions, over 
a few years, attempted to stand at the 
cross and unfold each of the six major 
sections of truth, as concentric circles 
around Calvary. For in the cross we find 
the greatest revelation of God, man, 
Christ, salvation, church and end-events! 
When each section, and every constituent 
part within it, are thought through 
together, and illuminated by the cross 
then doctrinal study becomes a study of 
the One who is the Truth (John 14:6). 
rather than just a study of truth for its 
own sake. Evangelism, preaching and 
teaching truths should be opponunities 
for presenting the One who is the Truth. 
Jesus must be seen as central in each. 

Dr. Gulley found in Ephesians 4:21 the 
key. .."The truth as it is in Jesus." This 
became the title of his manuscript. It is 
his hope that this book may, in some 
small way, help Christ to be seen in our 
fundamental beliefs, so that in studying 
them one may be led to Him, for the pro- 
mise is sure, "I. if I be lifted up, I will 

Norman Gulley: New book on 
Adventist doctrine 

draw all men unto me." (John 12:32) 
With this in mind. Dr. Gulley says, "It 
is exciting and humbling to have this 
book manuscript accepted. It is not 
ultimately my manuscript. I give all credit 
to the One to whom it belongs-to the 
One who is the Truth, who has guided me 
in the quest, and brought inspiration and 
blessing along the trek. I could never have 
done it without Him." 

Retrenchment, according to Webster, 
s, "a reduction ofexpenses." This year, 
I Southern College has found the need to 
j reduce their expenses by terminating the 
contracts of approximately 14 teachers. 
, According to Dr. Sahly, President of 
, Southern College, the school's enrollment 
, has been declining for five or six years. 
■ the same lime there has been a reduc- 
n m staff through retirement, reloca- 
tion and other means. The problem lies

capacity, has not paralleled the reduction

Vinita Sauder, after spending three 
successful years as director of public rela-

has decided to call it quits. She has of- 
ficially turned in her resignation, effec- 
tive December 19, 1986. Mrs. Sauder, 
who is leaving to continue her education, 
expressed her regrets for leaving. "I will 
really miss the office. I hate to leave but 
1 feel it's time for me to get the Masters." 
Vinita is planning on working full time 
for her MBA with a marketing emphasis 
at UTC. "The other motive." she adds, 
"is my one year old child with whom I'd 
like to spend more time." 

Mrs. Sauder has accomplished a lot in 
the three short years she has spent at 
Southern. Some of the accomplishments 
came in the form of publications that the 
department began to produce under her 
leadership. VIEWBOOK, a recruitment 
magazine, was started and, soon after, 
TAGE was another recruitment magazine 
that was developed-geared toward high 
school students. This magazine earned a 
national award among 600 other entries 

from other schools. PARENT LINE is 
another magazine scheduled to come off 
the press next month. Its emphasis will 
be directed towards the parents of the col- 
lege's students. 

All of this success seemed to have come 
fast for Vinita, who graduated from col- 
lege as recently as 1978. A Southern Col- 
lege alumnus with a double major in Ger- 
man and Communications-Journalism, 
Vinita went to work after graduation as 
managing editor for the PALM BEACH 
CHRONICLE. She worked there for a 
year and a half before she decided she 
would rather work within the church 
system. She then took her talents to Ket- 
tering Medical Center in Dayton, Ohio,

Editor for the Public Relations office.

Southern Christmas 
Concert Successful 

By Jim Huenergardl 

Gloria was the main theme at the Friday night vespers program; performed by the 
combined College and Academy choirs, along with the SC Symphony Orchestra under 
the direction of Orlo Gilbert. 

The Southern College Brass Ensemble, directed by Pat Silver, preluded the vespers 
program with a "Suite of Carols." Following the ensemble, two works, which are 
both named "Gloria," come from the 17th and 20th century were performed by the 
main chorus. The first piece was written by Antonio Vivaldi and was composed of 
twelve movements. It featured soloists Holly Holweger and Kim Stebbins. A small 
group of orchestra members accompanied the 

- "Glorias" consisted of a beautiful solo number, which

Oakland, Calif.(AP)-A man and 
woman stormed a house Monday and 
iciled SIX people, including two young

ship of a pit bulldog. The two men, 
iwo women and two girls (aged 2 and 3) 
were slam about 5:00 a.m. when a man 
idenufied as David Welch and an unidcn-

ineir home, shooting the victims in the 
head, police and relatives said. A 
neighbor. Willie Walker, said Welch had 
asked someone at the house to watch his 
two dogs. When Welch returned to the

Woman Charged with 
Product Tampering 

Seattle, Washington {AP)--A womar 
was arrested early Sunday at Big Daddy's 
supermarket in Lynnwood after a store 
security guard said he saw her inject an 
unidentified liquid into at least one con- 
tainer of ice cream, police said. The 
woman, Lenore Ann Lee, 28, entered the 
store about 2:00 a.m. with a man, who 
stopped in the video section. Security 

guard Randy Wiseman said he saw the 
woman tampering with a cork on a cham- 
pagne bottle, then followed her to the 
freezer where she injected the ice cream. 
Wiseman took the syringe away from the 
woman as she was attempting to inject a 
second carton, and they scuffled. Police 
arrested her as she was getting into her 
car—her companion escaped. If con- 
victed, Ms. Lee could be sentenced to 25 
years in prison and $50,000 fine, a FBI 
spokesman said. The FBI has been call- 
ed in on all food and drug tampering 
cases since the fatal cyanide poisoning of 
Extra-Strength Tylenol capsules in 
Chicago in 1982. 

U.S. Keds Save Pilot 

Miaini(AP)-U.S. Coast Guardsmen 
rescued a downed pilot Saturday morn- 
ing after he spent 15 hours in the Atlan- 
tic Ocean fighting off sharks. Waller 
Wyatt, 37, of Homestead, Florida was 
flying his twin-engine Beechcraft Baron 
from Nassau (Bahamas) to OpaLocka 
when it developed fuel and navigational 
problems late Friday, causing him to 
ditch the aircraft off the Cay Sal Bank. 

Wyatt crawled onto the plane's wing, but 
it sank 20 minutes later, leaving him alone 
in a leaky life vest with two defective 
flares-and sharks bumping into him. "At 
one point I was bumped pretty hard and 
it scared me," Wyatt said. "I had my ten- 
nis shoes on. When they came up to 
bump me I kicked them and that 
discouraged them. There are a lot of 
sharks out there with U.S. Keds stamped 
on their heads," he said.

Lighting Up For A Southern Christmas 

By Lynford Morton 
Thursday night, December 4, after 
a couple of postponements courtesy of 
[he weather, Southern College and the ci- 
ty of Coilegedale celebrated the annual 
Christmas tree lighting. This year's theme 
was in line with the "Tennessee '86 
Homecoming" and was well attended by 
both students and the community. 

Jan Rushing opened with a short 
welcome before turning the show over to 
Bob Bolton and the Coilegedale Academy 
Band. The band entertains with a few 
Christmas carols before being interrupted 
with the distraction of flashing lights and 
screaming sirens--i.e. the arrival of the 
Santas. In keeping the spirit of 
Homecoming '86, all of the Santas who 
ever served for any functions on campus 
or in Coilegedale were invited back to 
participate in the Christmas tree lighting 
ceremony. Seven Santas in all came back 
escorted by poUce car, fire engine, and an 
ambulance. Having made an impressive 
entrance, the Santas piled out on the steps 
of Wright Hall led by E.O. Santa Claus 
Grundsel who introduced the other six: 
Bill Taylor, Charies Fleming of Fleming 
Plaza, Jim Hermann, a campus favorite,

Marvm Hickman, big Ken Rogers and 
Orville Redenbacher, president of pop- 
corn Sahly. The Santas, along with Col- 
legedale's city manager, Lee Holland, 
then took a short ride around the corner 
to the Christmas tree for that evening's 
main event. The Santas this time carried 
Lee Holland out of the truck and over to 
the tree where he fiddled with the lights 
and through some act of "magic", voila, 
the Christmas tree is suddenly il- 
luminated. While the crowd around the 
tree disbursed for refreshments, the San- 
tas threw out candy canes to the crowd 
with the exception of Orville Reden- 
bacher Santa who threw out what else but 
popcorn balls! 

For the rest of the evening music was 
broadcast across campus. The Instruc- 
tional Media department will continue to 
broadcast music over campus every night 
until December 18, the official end of the

Farewell Southern College 

By Stan Hickman 

Two and a half years ago at four a.m. on a Sunday morning one nervous Califor- 

ua boy pulled up in front of Talge Hall. He was 2,300 miles from home and he didn't 

;now a single person. This was like "Pee-wee's big adventure." This boy had decid- 

d to leave California to get away from home and friends. He wanted to find out 

note about his church and he wanted to find a working relationship to God. He 

ISO hoped to gain a degree along the way that would help him toward law school. 

It was tough. All his friends all his family so far away. He was lonely. Friday nights 

^ »ere unbareable. He remembered the weekly (Friday) Sabbath dinner with the whole 

I family and how afterwards he and his brother would go see their friends and goof 

' around. But the people at S.C. were very warm and he made friends quickly. They 

t real deep friendships, but they were friends. 

ne grew real close to his roommate Bill. Bill was always there to talk with and 

HiU cared. He was a real friend. Bill carried him through that first semester. 

Time moved on. The California boy got to know the deans. They became friends. 
1 he head dean offered him a job for second semester. He liked it and liked the deans 
and so at the end of the year he applied for an R. A. position for the next year. That 
was m case he decided to come back after the summer. For a while that second semester 
he was sure he wouldn't. He couldn't stand what he saw as Adventism's version of 

He was repulsed by the unquestioning attitudes of students and faculty. He couldn't 
believe the ngid views and especially the rigid attitudes. He was shocked by the hostility 
ne received when he challenged the cliches, the easy answers, the off repeated end 
01 discussion Ellen White quotes. He was frustrated. He could not understand the 
attitudes. He couldn't see God in these people. He couldn't see the love that he ex- 
pec eo to see in good Christians in good Adventists. Rules and theology seemed stress- 
ed to the exclusion of the idea of God's love and of being loving people. 

Fortunately, this Californian Adventist stumbled into a religion class that chang- 
ed his view of the church. The class was Comparative Religion, taught by Dr. Jerry 
tJladson. What a class. So much information. To discover the thoughts of so many 
other peoples pursuing God in so many different ways. It forced him to think and 
nink hard. This is what he'd come here for, to be challenged, to question and thus 
to learn. Real learning does not take place without sincere questioning with a tint 
o skepticism. If learning is to be just like programming a computer then this school 
was doing an excellent job: garbage in, garbage out; Adventism in. Adventism out. 
nis school was programming him rather than helping him to pursue knowledge and 
a challenging, exciting class. This was the pursuit of knowledge 

not believe in the u-on-dad nature of the revelation Adventists claimed. (A step back 
is necessary here so that you can understand this young man. The previous class was 
taught from the Adventist perspective.) The person is of course me, and I will now 
assume first person. Since I've dragged you in this far. I hope you can tolerate the 

Two years before coming to S.C. a very special friend of mine died in a plane crash. 
He was the pilot. His name is Mark. He had been my idol through my high school 
years. He was three years older than me and a wild guy. He was fun. We had met 
on the C.B. radio and as a group of C.B.ers we would spend many afternoons together 
at a friends house one street away from where I lived. He was always happy, he never

How To Survive 

How To Survive: The Relatives 
At Christmas 

As Christmas break 
looms near, students of 
Southern College will begin 
their trips home. Some will 
travel via airplane and 
others by car. We will have 
completed our final exams, 
and stress and fatigue will 
definitely be in the air. Gas 
stations will need to be 
visited, luggage packed, 
and last minute details will 
need to be wrapped up. In 
our tired minds, jumbled 
up with English, 
phychology, accounting, 
pyhsics, and astronomy, 
the thought of a peaceful 
Christmas vacation will 
compel us to press on 

Finally, we are ready to 
begin our journey home. 
Lady passengers who need 
to stop frequently, traffic 
jams, flat tires, and bad 
weather all make the trip 
seem endless, but the glim- 
mering thought of home 
keeps us driving. At last, 
the final passenger is 
deposited, and the 
Christmas carols are crank- 
led up as we drive the final 
I miles home. 

But, oh no, could it be? 
Yes, they're here! The 
relatives have arrived. You 
walk in, exhausted, in need 
of peace and quiet. Your 
mother kisses you, and then 
asks you to take your little 
cousins Billy and Bobby 
outside to play. No pro- 

blem, you mistakenly 
think. Billy and Bobby 
want to play cowboys and 
Indians. Quickly, you find 
yourself tied to a tree to be 
burned at the stake. Lucki- 
ly your mom smells the 
smoke and saves you- 
mueh to the dissappoint- 
ment of Billy and Bobby. 

Whew! What a narrow 
escape. Finally, supper is 
over, Christmas carols have 
been sung, and goodnights 
exchanged. As you begin 
the long climb upstairs, 
mother stops you and asks 
you to allow Aunt Polly 
and Uncle George to have 
your bed since they are 

Sadly, you drag your 
tired body to the lumpy 
couch, which Rover intends 
to share. As you lie there 
and contemplate two more 
such weeks, your Christmas 
dreams shatter into 
nothing. So you ask for my 
advice on how to survive 
the relatives at Christmas, 
but what is there to say? 
Just grin and BEAR IT!! 


How To Survive: 
Christmas Mastication 

By Brent Van Arsdell 

Christmas in my home 
town is a time when it is 
socially acceptable to kill 
someone you like. The ap- - 
proved method-snack him 
to death! 

Around the first of 
December, shadowy 

characters with names like 
Zaworski, and Shimanski 
move in on my family. 
They bring goodie covered 
plates and platters 
decorated in "blood-death 
red" festive holiday colors! 
When you ask a Zaworski 
what he is bringing he'll 
just say, "ess verry goot!" 
but even if he does tell you 
what it is, you won't be able 
to say it, (isn't it morally 
wrong to eat something you 
can't even pronounce?) 

You'll eat one just to 
show that you want to 

December 11, 1 986/SOUTHERN ACCENT/9 

maintain peace in the 
neighborhood, but as soon 
as the Zaworski leaves 
you'll run to the bathroom 
to maintain peace in your 

Now I don't want to 
knock all this Christmas 
homemade junk food stuff, 
some of it is really good, 
good for tha Alka-Seltzer 
to the rescue people that is. 
Even if what you eat 
doesn't make you rush for 
the plop-plop-fizz-fizz, 
you'll feel guilty for the 
weight gain, guilty for the 
unneeded calories, and guil- 
ty for the between meal 
snacks. "Not a morsel 
should pass your 
lips". ..between quotations 
from your grandmother, 
(isn't that how it goes?). 

But I have a solution for 
the X-mas indigestion 
madness. Enjoy the 
holidays and bake lots of 
snacks with names like San- 
ta's delight, chocolate 
creme puffs de X-Lax, and 
Mrs. Clauses revenge. You 
should even try to make 
one that's called "poteitz- 
ah", it's a real winner! 

Wrap up your goodies 
and trimmings and trapp- 
ings (in blood-death red 
festive holiday colors) and 
send them to someone you 
really want to impress this 
holiday season, or maybe 
someone that 's truly needy. 

How To Survive: 
Christmas Shopping 

By Bret! Hadtey 

Have you ever noticed 
-that around Christmas time 
everybody seems to be ex- 
traordinarily friendly? 
Something about the season 

brings out the best in peo- 
ple. With a hearty "Merry 
Christmas" and an affable 
"Happy New Year", you 

know there must be 
something special about 
this time of year. Smiles 
seem to abound on every 
face you see. Christmas, 
New Year's Day and the 
whole season in general 
tends to make everyone 
happy and hospitable. 

However, if you take a 
quick trip to the shopping 
malls, you will find that this 
spirit of joy and giving are 
non-existent. Just enter any 
women's clothing store and 
you will see that "peace and 
good will towards men" 
have no place there. Instead 
of smiles you see grimacing 
faces and glares that seem 
to say, "Don't shop next to 
me or I'll blow your face 
off with a bazooka!" 

No one wishes anybody a 
Merry Christmas in a 
women's clothing store. In- 
stead you hear things like, 
"Get your hands off this 
blouse, winch, I saw it 
first!" Or in the checkout 
line, "Move it moron, 
there's people going into 
retirement back here." 

I do all my Christmas 
shopping in July; it's much 
safer. As a child, I 
remember my mother doing 
all the family's Christmas 
shopping. Now I know 
why: women are the more 
vicious of the species. A 
Christmas sale is hke a 
feeding frenzy to women. 
Housewives, who are nor- 

mally well-mannered, 
good-natured people, turn 
into demented lunatics 
when they see the word 

So how do normal peo- 
ple, like you and I, survive 
these crazed lunatics of the 
malls? I have a few sugges- 
tions which may be helpful. 

First of all, remember 
that there are no rules of 
etiquette when it comes to 
Christmas Shopping; it's 
every man for himself. 

Secondly, use athletic 
techniques. Think of shop- 
ping as a professional 
sport. If you see a crowd 
gathered around a table of 
shirts that has something 
you want on it, use the 
"jump over the defense like 
Herschel Walker" method. 
When you happen to be in 
a crowd of people rushing 
for the last pair of Levi's 
501 jeans, size 31, think like 
Wayne Gretzke and use 
body checks. 

Once you have the item 
you wish to purchase, run 
a hundred yard dash to the 
checkout line. If you have 
some friends with you, let 
them run interference for 
you. It is possible you 
might run over some small 
children and a few grand- 
mothers, but, hey, that's 
the risk they take by going 
shopping. Remember, it's a 
professional sport the 
amateurs and veterans must 
be eliminated. 

If you follow these sim- 
ple guidelines your 
Christmas shopping should 
be smoother than it has ever 
been before. So, I wish you 
good luck. Merry 
Christmas, and happy 

A Christmas Shopping Guide 

By Sonia Sanchez 

Now that Christmas is fast approaching, we are each faced with the age old pro- 
blem of choosing gifts for family and friends, something that can seem so very sim- 
ple, yei be so very complex. 

Family are a liiile less difficult than friends. Generally because family members 
don't feel as great a need to be subtle about what gifts they want. Perhaps you have 
awakened to find a large banner posted to your ceiling that reads, "If you love me, 
get me a compact disc player." Or maybe you've poured out your breakfast cereal 
and, instead of a plastic toy, you find a note from your mother saying, "You could 
be eating a hot breakfast, if I had a G.E. microwave oven." 

Shopping for friends, on the other hand, can be a long and frustrating experience; 
especially if your friend is of the opposite sex. Never fear! Help is here! 

To make your Christmas season a relaxing one, we here at the Southern Accent 
have put together a list of just a few gift suggestions for guys and girls to give each 

As always, ladies first. In contemplating gift ideas for girls, the first thought that 
comes to mind is clothes, which is a great thought! I can't think of one girl who 
would not enjoy receiving clothes. 

For instance, take sweaters; 1 can assure you that a girl can never have enough 
sweaters. This also is a piece of clothing that can fit any budget range. 

For example, you can pick up a nice sweater at the local J.C, Penney or Sears 
for around S25. Or if you desire something a little nicer. Casual Corner carries some 
nice knit sweaters for about S35. If the girl you have in mind likes to keep up with 
ail the latest in fashion, you could drop by The Limited and get a beautiful Outback 
Red sweater for around $38. Benetton has a fantastic selection of sweaters ranging 
from S60-S90. 

If sweaters are too stuffy for you, Coca-Cola clothes are available. Coke is "in," 
very affordable, and offers a wide selection. They have everything from bathing suits 
to sweaters, from sweat pants to jeans, and the classic jersey shirts. You can find 
Coca-Cola clothing in Lovemans and Miller's, starting at $30. 

So many limes people look at an outfit as several obvious articles of clothing. An 
outfit is more than a shirt and pants, it is often those little accessories that really 
make an outfit. 

Gloves and scarves, when bought in a set. can be a great addition to any outfit. 
Miller's and Lovemans sell nice sets, but if you are looking for a more casual look, 
why not pick from the United Colors of Benetton, or the store for which there is 
no substitute. The Limited. 

Perfume is always a nice gifi. Some of the more popular perfumes are Diva by 
Ungar, Beautiful by Estee Lauder, the Liz Claiborne line, and Poison by Christian 
Dior. Other favorites include White Linen, Obsession, Chloe', Chanel No. 5, and 
■ ■ *s almost endless. There is a fiagrance to match almost any budget. 

Now, for you girls who are about to begin shopping for that special man (or 
in your life, here are some gift ideas. 

Picture this, if you will. ..Your special guy walking by your side, wearing a 
new "born to be successful" oxford that you have bought for him at the local Milie'r'^^l 
Lovemans, or Ira Triver's. These nice shirts usually range from $15-S2S \ 

wool, argyle sweater. This and other sweaters of varioi, J 

Add to this pici 
designs and materials can be found almost anywhere, like J. R. Riggin 
ranging from $30-S60. 

Coca-Cola has expanded their line of clothing for men to offer you a wid 
of selections. We recommend that you take a trip down to Miller's or Lovemi 


latest in Coca Cola fashion. 

ome finishing touches, we suggest that you look at the many accessory it 

' With the many required worships here at Southern College, a guy needj 

Perhaps you have awakened to find a largel 
banner posted to your ceiling that reads, "If 
you love me, get me a compact disc player."! 

Let's not forget what a simple tie bar or clasp can do for a tie. You might e 
want to buy a pair of cuff-links to add that classy touch. 

For the more casual look, Swatch, Benetton, and Coca-Cola watches are v 
popular this season. Price ranges vary from store to store, but $30-S40 should cove 

With a chill in the air, a set of gloves or a handsome scarf would be a wonderful! 
finishing touch to a delightful ensemble, and will help keep him warm when you c; 
be there. 

On a different line, there are many other items people will enjoy receiving, s 
as a copy of the latest tape released, or maybe a poster or picture for their roi 
A nice frame to hold that picture of the two of you at the banquet is an excellent] 
idea. How about a new subscription to a favorite magazine? 

Here at the Southern Accent, we hope that this list of gift ideas will add i 
nience to your Christmas shopping. Have a Merry Christmas and remember 
is not so much the gift that matters as it is the thought that goes with it.

I came back. I've learned a special love for this church and people and I will con-

I thank God, Dr. Gladson, and Dean Qualley. Both of these men showed me that 
questioning and doubt can exist in a constructive relationship to God and Church. 
1 was fonunate also to take Philosophy of Religion from Dr. Gladson, I was still 
having trouble accepting religion and God intellectually. This philosophy class in- 
volved the hardest reading materials I've ever touched and required me to think harder 
than I ever had before. I came to see that the skeptics arguments were not superior 
. They seemed equal and this was greatly encouraging. The 
itually lead to a view that not even our own thinking is any 
ctions of physicial material in a endless cause and effect cy- 
cle. Thus, we have no basis to believe in the validity of our thinking. Therefore, there 
IS no reason to beheve the thinking of the skeptic. He has refuted himself. 

God IS meaning. God is the first cause in the cause and effect chain. God created 
the free will and the mtelleci that aUows us to find real answers and real truths. God 
IS the only place where meaning can be found. Upon this discovery, I realized that 
nothing could steal my faith again. My faith was now in line with my inteUect There 
is a marvelous quiet confidence in a well thought out, well understood belief in God 
This, I beheve, is the only type of faith that cannot be shaken. 

Look at Job. All the conventional religious thought of his day could not explain 
why he, an innocent man, was suffering so. Though all his friends told him he was 
wrong, though his church and culture condemned him as responsible for his own 
suffering, he refused to bow. He held to his innocence. Job spoke against the beliefs 
of his religious culture and did so solely on the basis of his own understanding of 
his own relationship to God. It turns out that Job was far closer to being correct 
than his friends. What was the answer? Sorry, that's not for me to tell you That's 
"" " discover as you look for truth and understanding and as you look for 

God. Easy answers, simple conclusions are the curse on, and disti 

given ability to think; and they lead us to reject the responsibility we. a! 
have in pursuring a relationship with and and understanding of God

'Deck The Halls"

on to law school. My GPA i;

the best friendships of my life. So why leave all of that? Why not just stick it out, 
I finish up, gel that degree? It's not easy to explain because our society's value system 
t respect my reasoning. Even our religion shares a similar value system with 
!( the society it resides in. What do we value? 

will assert that we value all of the externals in our lives to the exclusion of a real 
.uit of meaning, a real pursuit of God. We are taught that aU we need to be hap- 
ind find meaning is. ..that degree, that special girl, that really good job. I'll be 
happy once I'm there.. .1*11 be happy once I have that.. .I'll be happy when I finally 
e always wanted. The theology student wants that good wife, that good 
"call", to move up and advance in God's organization. Someday, if only he works 
hard enough, he may be a conference president and then he'll have everybody's respect 
and all the good things in life. Or in religion: If only I could try a little harder; if 
only 1 read my Bible every day; if only I could have that better kind of relationship 
"I hate this religious stuff but if I'll just follow these stupid rules someday 
I'll be in heaven. Anything, no matter how bad, is worth doing to get eternal life. 
Surely, if I do good things for God, he'll bless me; he wouldn't let bad things happen 
to me like they happen to those non-believers." Does any of this sound familiar to 
you? Almost everyone thinks this way. Could there be anything else? 

My conclusion is, that there is. I don't think that even the best externals can satisfy 
ihe empty spirit that cries out for a life with God, for a life filled deeply with mean- 
ing. To paraphrase Thoreau (and John Dysinger) I don't want to come to the end 
^ of my life and realize that I have not hved. I want the central focus of my life to 
be the attempt at understanding God, to understanding life, and thus how I should 
~ relate to life and to other people. I want to spend my life growing as a person, grow- 
ing spiritually. Therefore, I am rejecting the value system of my society and to some 
extent, the value system of my church. For now, I will pursue truth, God, for no 
fl other reason than the desire to learn and the desire to become a real and whole per- 
to be a person who can love God, love himself, and truly love others 
ctive way that will nurture their own individual route to spiritual growth. 
fl I feel called to do this and I have accepted all of the costs involved in doing it. Christ 
lever promised that following him would be easy. If it is easy, I doubt I'm following 
lim, I doubt I'm growing. The hard decisions, the worst hurts and pains have caus- 
:d me to grow. The good times only maintain me in a status quo. 1 want growth 
Lnd so I'll accept the suffering.

that I did not fmd much of here: Open attitudes, questioning minds, hearts striving 
for God; faculty leading us to use our minds, to question, to discover things for 
ourselves. Faculty, please, stop giving quick answers, stop using cliches, stop answering 
before the student has even understood the question. Life is complex, often cruel 
and very mysterious. There are no easy answers that can hold up against the injustices 
ot evil, the injustices of life, the cruelty of death. Faith without real understanding 
and questioning is empty, and will collapse. The first major disaster of your life will

Care Corner 


By Tim Peters 

Destiny, S.C.'s drama troupe, is a dimension of CARE, so involved in outreach 
that the SC student body often doesn't realize how active it is. This club has on its 
tour calendar, destinations ranging from New Orleans to Washington, D.C. What 
is this club, which represents SC on so r 
summarizes the philosophy of Destiny 
through drama." 

He continues. "Acting is an enjoyable way il. reach people and share God's love. 
None of us are professional actors. We are very nervous before a performance, but 
as we begin, we feel God's presence on stage. It is as if the angels are performing 
with us. With God on our side, we have no difHculty." 

This year the theme of the Destiny skits relies more on situations than parables, 
and there is particular emphasis on Scriptural skits. As always, their programs pre- 
sent the Christian experience from a variety of angles. 

Destiny's presentations will be shared with many this year due to their elaborate 
travel schedule. The first of these planned trips began on November 20, the date of 
their presentation to Covenant College. The next day ihey drove to Fletcher Academy 
to perform for the vespers service. Mount Pisgah featured Destiny in their Sabbath 
morning program. 

Destiny will visit Oakwood CoUege on April 10 of next year, the week before a 
major tour to New Orleans. They will be in Birmingham on April 16, after which 
Ihey will move on to a show at Bass Academy. The following Sabbath will bring 
Destiny to New Orleans for a church service presentation. 

For us in CoUegedale, March 27 is the date to look forward to. On that Friday, 
Destiny and Hearisong will have their home show, which promises to be one of the 
best ever. 

Anyone interested in acting who has had any drama experience should contact Tim 
Minear to find out about the possibility of becoming a member in the future. Destiny

Life • Take Two 

She was an editor of a college newspaper. . Just like me. Coming to Southern Col- 
lege from Michigan, for a weekend visit with her friends, it was totally by chance 
that we met each other, I saw her in the lobby of Thatcher and mutual friends in- 
troduced us. After the introduction we spent the entire weekend developing our com- 
mon interests and getting to know each other. Since she was a visitor from up North 
1 thought it would be appropriate for me to show her the campus of Southen Col- 
lege, so on Sabbath afternoon we walked around campus viewing the different educa- 
tional facilities; the end of the tour found us both in the Accent office. We talked 
and laughed about each others ideas while watching the sun go down in a Southern 
College sunset. When the sun had dissapeared neither one of us moved to turn on 
the lights. There, in the dark we exchanged some philosophies and delved into each 
others personalities to find striking similarities in our lives. I told her she was attrac- 
tive. We counted a few stars, and then she had to leave... if I had it to do again, 
I'd do it different. 

You should see the sunset from the windows in the Accent office; it's pretty spec- 
tacular sometimes. 1 was watching one the Thursday before Christmas break. My 
last final had been taken without too much difficulty. (The hardest part was getting 
my exam permits. I told Randy that I have a rich, Spanish uncle that owns a fruit 
picking company and wants to make a contribution to the furtherment of my higher 
education. ..he bought it fruit pickers and all). My vision was isolated on the sunset

to handle bad experiences: let them live in your memory as a constant reminder f I

As we have all returned to Southern College for yet another exciting, fun-nueti I 
semester, we have before us a new chance and opportunity for success, it is all to 
easy to let the mistakes of the past semester live on and cast a shadow of doubt ove^ 
our next eighteen weeks of scholastic future. Instead it is important that we use o

Whose Education Is It Anyway? 

Dear Editor: 

It seems as if everyone is concerned about Christian 
education lately. I am a sophomore at Southern College 
of Seventh-day Adventists, Collegedale, Tennessee, and 
in my two short years in attending S.C., I have seen many 
things done to "improve the institution." 

Transitions and criticism are the most popular tactics 
used to enhance life at Southern College. Administrators, 
faculty conference officials, and concerned constituents 
have been discussing, debating, and dog-fighting about 
education at Southern College of S.D.A. for the entire 
time I have been in attendance here. 

While concerned constituents mail out flyers that 
slander S.C. in hopes to bring reform, the administra- 
tion moves to cutback the academic faculty. In addition, 
faculty members find little unity between the administra- 
tion and themselves on the process by which Southern 
can be revived. Conference officials add their two cents 
to the vicious cycle that is desperately seeking the illusive 
objective of "quality Christian education." 

Amidst all of the transition, revision, and deliberation 
concerning Southern College, one group has not been 
consulted. The collegians of S.C. The one group which 
is most directly affected by administrative decisions, con- 
stituent begrudgement flyers, and faculty reductions, the 
students, have been neglected in the crusade that everyone 
else has decided to take up. Why has the student body 
been excluded in making decisions and contributions to 
the direction of their Christian education? 

I know of no better source of infonnation about stu- 
dent life than the student. Valuable insight can be ob- 
tained concerning recruitment, curriculum practicality, 
and campus atmosphere from the one who experiences 
it directly. It is the student that holds the key to Southern 
Collie's future. Everyone knows thaL It is past time that 
constituents, conference officials, faculty, and ad- 
ministrators acted on the knowledge of this fact. 

I am concerned about my school. Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists has become my college and I plan 
to graduate from its halls. My time, money, goals, and 
dreams are invested in this institution. Involve me in my 
school. I want to see it prosper. I want to see its haUs 
overflow with students. I want to be proud of its 
academics, athletics, and objectives. I want to see it grow 
and expand. I want a Christian education at Southern 

Neglect me and there is a decline in student enroUment. 
Don't involve me and there is apathy. Overlook me and 
there are curriculum malfunctions. Ignore me and there 
is no Southern College. 

I am the student. Please talk to me. Whose education 
is it anyway?

Appalachian Fund Gives 
Southern College Capital Grant 

Southern College of Seventh-Day 
Adventist has received a $200,000 endow- 
ment grant from the Appalachian Fund, 
Inc., to continue the level of scholarship 
support provided in recent years. 

The Southern College endowment was 
the largest of four endowmments granted 
in December upon the dissolving of the 
Appalachian Fund, Inc. Several other af- 
niiates of the Fund received smaller 

In the past five years about fifty 
Southern College nursing students have 
shared in scholarships totaling nearly 
$50,000. The goal for the scholarships has 
not only been to improve educational op- 
portunities for Appalachian students but 
also to help provide skilled nursing care 
in the region. 

"We're delighted with the Appalachian 
Fund's willingness to support substantial- 
ly the same scholarship program for 
Southern College as in the past," said Dr. 
Jack McClarty. vice president for 
development at Southern College. "This 
special grant gives focus and emphasis to 

yet financially needy Appalachian nurs- 
ing students," he stated, "and it wil sus- 

tain a constant flow of compassionate, 
highly qualified nurses who are prepared 
to serve health needs of Appalachia." 

Southern College enrolled over 300 
nursing students this year. "Several of 
these students are able to pursue their 
educational goats only because of 
scholarships such as those provided by 
the Appalachian Fund, " said Dr. 

More than 30 years ago the Ap- 
palachian Fund was founded by Herbert 
and Ruth Faber to improve the health 
and well-being of people in Appalachia. 
Accordng to their son, Stuart Faber, 
president of the Fund, it was their wish 
that the Fund would eventually work 
itselfout of business. Though the Fund's 
activities have now terminated, continua- 
tion of its goals has been insured by en- 
dowment grants such as the one given to 
Southern College. 

Headquarters for the Fund has been in 
Berea, Kentucky. Some thirty affiliates of 
the Appalachian Fund have met in an an- 
nual conference each spring. Mrs. 
Norbert F. Stammer has served as direc- 
tor of the Appalachian Fund, Inc.

not changing telephone numbers - with 
one exception. Dial-A-Menu will be 
changing to 2399. Girls in the Thatcher 
Annex will receive "standard" numbers 
(238-24'room number) instead of the 
randomly-assigned numbers they now 

We will be changing the way students 
dial numbers. Presently, we have to dial 
238-whatever. With the new system we 
will only dial the last four digits. 

Offices can also be dialed with four 
digits - just add "2" to the beginning of 
the 3-digit extension number. 

We have not fuUy determined what 
new features students will have. One that 
is certain is Call Transfer. If someone 
calls your roommate and you know he is 
down the hall in room 238, you just flick 
the receiver hookswitch and dial 3238, 
then hang up. The call will be sent to the 
number you dialed.

previously). Privacy (to protect modems 
from intrusion by other tones), and

One feature students will not have is 
Call Forwarding. Although it might seem 
marvelously convenient to be able to for- 
ward your calls when you are visiting a 
friend, it would be too easy for people to 
have their calls forwarded to someone 
who didn't want them (because, for in- 
stance, they preferred to sleep at night). 

We are currently researching the 
possibility of access to numbers outside 
the college. It is very hkely that students 
will have unlimited access to all 
238-numbers. It is somewhat likely that 
students will have access (limited to a cer- 
tain number of conversations at a time). 

There is even a possibility that students 
may be able to use their parents' credit 
cards to make long-distance calls from 
their rooms. 

Why is all this so unsure? The issues 
have not been negotiated with the 
telephone company. The reason for this 
is that we don't know which company to 
negotiate with. Our telephone company 
is currently negotiating with another com- 
pany with a view toward a sale of their 
operations in this area. There has been at 
least one article in a Chattanooga 
newspaper about the sale, but the 
telephone company is not commenting on 
the issue at present. 

When will the changeover occur? We 
do not have firm dates from the 
telephone system vendor or the telephone 
company as yet, but current estimates call 
for late January to early February.

The Truth About T^U7H~ 

By Mark Bond 

"Have you heard about the great 
Messiah?" WeU, if you've heard StiU The 
Truth, the dynamic new album by the 
group whose name is also Truth, you 
have. 5//// The Truth is an album which 
is full of life and message, hope and 

Truth has been traveling together for 
over 20 years. Their reputation for 
creating excellent Christian music is se- 
cond to none. As a group, their formal 
is similar to that of the Heritage Singers 
in that they have four female vocalists 
and four male vocalists. They also rely 
extensively on keyboards and syn- 
thesizers, bass and guitar; this is where 

credible brass section. Also included in 
their ten-person band is a sax- 
ophone/flute player. All of these are 
combined to bring forth a knock-out 
combination of intensely sweet vocal har- 
monies along with the power of a 
Chicago type band. 

Truth'snew a.lbum,Still The Truth, 
grabs you from the start with the first cut 
on the first side, "What Can I Do" which 
asks God what we can do to help bring 
our friends who don't know God to Him. 
"I'll Remember You To The Father," 
says to a friend who is in need, that he 

is earnestly being prayed for. 

Truth'stight vocal harmony, which 
they are known for, shines bright on 
"The Highest Call," and "Lamb of 
God." Following suit with Amy Grant's 
"Fat Baby," and Sandi Patti's "Face to 
Faith," they have included a couple of 
songs with a "forties and fifties" flair. 
"Do What" is a catchy tune in the 40's 
"do-wa, do-wa" style, and "Wonderful 
Invention" is an acapeUa 50's style song 
which you can't help but snap your 
fingers to. These songs clearly show why 
Truth is often compared vocally to 
Manhattan Transfer. 

The first time I saw Truth in concert 

was in a little Baptist church in Ocala I 
Florida. I didn't know what I was ii 
When we got there, the place was 
ed from wall to wall. We wound u 
ting on the floor in the front row. , „ao 
heard one of their albums before but 1 
they were even better live than on the 
album. Well, three albums and aboui 
four or five concerts later, Still The Truth 
IS on the shelves. I'm convinced that it's 
their best album yet. If you haven'i heard 
Truth yet, go down to Lanham's Chris- 
tian Music (on Brainerd Rd. by Service 
Merchandise) and listen to ihe 
demonstration album there. I'm sure 
you'll love it! 

Personal Observation 

By Brett Hadley 
When I saw her talking to another guy it hurt me. The more I watched the two 
of them standing in the afternoon sun, talking and laughing, the more my heart ach- 
ed, and my pain, mixed with anger rose. It was like a fire buring inside me. Seeing 
her having fun with another guy when it should be me, sparked a blaze that quickly 
swept through my entire emotional being. I wanted to be the one she enjoyed spen- 
ding time with. I wanted her undivided special attention. Defenses like, "Let her flirt 
with everybody, I don't need her anyway," quickly and autonomjcally were raised... 
I, my body quivered with emotional pain. Like the proverbial fox and grapes

Sharing people is not an easy thing to do. You can share your time, your clolhes.l

very difficult. Allowing your girl or boyfriend freedom may seem terribly hard, buti

A second important factor to all relationships is freedom; God knew this when 
He threw it into Christianity. If you try to monopolize either friendship or love you 
smother it, and it dies. A friend needs freedom to have other friends and spend time 
with them. A girlfriend needs time with other people, yes even other guys. When

waking moment with them, your being selfish; selfish love has no place in any heahhy

All this streaked through my mind as I watched them. I stood fast and stared ii 
tently. All the right answers were mine, and it made no difference, I still ached in-| 
tently. I learned something else through all this; knowing what's right doesn't make!

it costs $1 1 ,000 to attend Beloit fo a year, and that does not include books! Of course 
the only rules at Beloit are academic requirements and the dorms are co-ed. All this

T.V.- There Is An Alternative 

I glance ai my watch, it's 5:00 and time for Star Trek. I relax comfortably on the 
living room sofa and reach for the remote control. I lay back onto Ihe couch, flip 
on the T.V., switch my mind into neutral, and then gaze, hynotized by the television 
screen for an hour of space adventure. During a commercial break, J quickly make 
a sandwich, grab a glass of milk and settle back to watching Kirk, Spock and Bones

Millions of Americans spend at least 4-5 hours a day watching television. These 
people sit in their living rooms, almost unaware of any other activity present in Ihe 
room. I feel the excess of T.V. viewing described above is unnecessary and a waste 
of lime as well as being unproductive. There are numerous activities other than wat- 
ching T.V. that a person can do by himself that would be more productive. 

Many Americans sit down all day at a desk or computer only to come home and 
sit for another 6 hours doing nothing but eating and looking. Heart Disease is the

To Be, Or Not To Be A Newspaper 

Dear Editor: 

My school newspaper bothers me. When I think of 
what a newspaper should be, the Accent does not seem 
to fit. To me, it seems as though we simply have a paper 
of opinions here at Southerir. Only one page is devoted 
to actual news and the rest turns out to be nothing more 
than the romantic opinions of the very few people that 
run the so-called "newspaper." 

Why can't we branch out and do some real in-depth 
journalism? I would like to have a school newspaper that 
I could be proud of and show to my friends from other 
schools. When I show them an eight page (7 page really, 
one page is nothing but a picture) discourse on nothing 
but light hearted, superficial philosophy, it's just a little 

Instead of having editorials that read like an Uncle Ar- 
thur's bedtime story, maybe we should try dealing with 
some real hard-core issues. 

I believe it is time that the editorial staff take a critical 
look at what it is they're trying to accomplish through 
the newspaper,

How To Make A Difference 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to commend Allan Martin for his letter 
to the editor in last week's Southern Accent. 

it brought to light the regretful fact that we, the 
students, have been neglected in many areas where we 
could have possibly provided helpful insight. 

But this letter is more than a pat on the back. It is a 
request, belter yet, a plea for the students of Southern 
College to take an active interest in our school. 

Too many times, we assume the passive attitude that 
our opinions are insignificant. We must realize that these 
individual opinions, when properly channeled, can alert 
the faculty of our needs, goals, and desires regarding life 
at Southern. 

So actually, what is my request? First, I would urge 
you, my fellow students, to voice your opinions about 
our school through generally accepted methods. Some ex- 
amples are: the deans, the Southern Accent, SA officers 
and senators. Second, I would ask each student to fre- 
quently attempt to say something positive about our 
school. You could boast on our great location (just 5 
minutes from Wendy's and 15 minutes from "The Bell") 
the Anton Heiller organ. Just try and be 

A positive attitude can do wonders. Even if it is 
January, we can still peer through the rain and catch a 
glimpse of the jovial days awaiting in "Summer '87". 
So what if you did poorly on an economics quiz. Dr. 
Rolfe believes in curving those gems. 

Finally, a word of caution; being positive can be con- 
tagious. The whole school could be infected with PMA 
Mental Attitude), and then what would hap- 

light be worth finding o

Kodak Presents China 
In Living Color 

A team of Kodak photographers 
traveled thousands of miles to gather the 
panoramic photographs, movies, and in- 
terviews for a multimedia travel spec- 
tacular called "China-A Journey in Pic- 
tures." Southern College is sponsoring 
the local premiere Sunday, January 25, 
at 8:00 p.m. in the college gymnasium. 

The director of the photographic team 
describes China as unique. "Because the 
culture is so different from our own, 
everyday life is full of wonderful 
surprises-the kind of surprises that make 
great picture possibihties. Photographing 
sights like the Great Wall is a thrill," ac- 
cording to the director, "but the greatest 
challenge is to capture the interesting 
details of daily life on film. Those details 
add up to a total experience which, we 
hope, provides a revealing look at a dif- 
ferent way of life." 

fascinating country." 

In land area, China is larger than the 
United States. Their travels exposed the 
photo crew to extremes of climate. "We 
visisted Harbin, where the temperature 
was twenty-six degrees centigrade below 
zero. And we traveled in the Yunnan pro- 
vince where the climate is subtropical. 
Our accomodations varied, too, from 
four-star hotels to yurts, which are tent- 
like dwellings of the Mongol people." 

Wherever the crew traveled to coUea 
scenes and stories, it carted some 500 
kilos of equipment. Movies are shot with 
a 16 mm motion picture camera. The ma- 
jority panoramas were taken with larger- 
format 120 film size cameras. 

The team's director considers the pro- 
per lens and film as important tools for 
travel photography. "Most often, our 
control of the subjects we photograph is 

Michelle Fulbright, Laura Putnum,

When asked how he feels about the up- 
coming show, Ted Evans said, "I'm real- 
ly excited about this year. We have had 
to practice full team routines every prac- 
tice night, so those kids who are doing 
seperate small group routines have had 
to practice on their own time. I'm very 
proud of them because they have work- 
ed hard." 


"There's a tremendous amount of in- 
formation in a photograph. One picture 
of a city street communicates visual in- 
formation about transportation, the ar- 
chitecture of surrounding buildings, peo- 
ple's physical features, their dress, and 
much more. Putting many pictures 
together in a multimedia show gives us 
a powerful medium for sharing a wide- 
ranging view of this immense and 

limited. We need to use a lens and a fdm 
that give us flexibility. A zoom lens- 
allows us to change focal length fast, 
without having to change lenses or 
change our position. And a 200-speed 
film performs well under a variety of 
lighting conditions-from bright, sunny 
scenics to dimly lit interiors. Our pictures 
wil be projected, so we use a slide film- 
Kodak Eciachrome 200-film."

The Physical Education Department 
I has recently announced their decision to 
change the traditional B.A. degree to a 
B.S. degree beginning in September of 
' '987. 

The department feels that the B.S. 

iegree, which emphasizes health along 

I with physical education, will be more 

I marketable and better qualify students to 

I obtain a job. 

New requirmenis and the addition of 

lew courses have forced the change in the 

degree, said Dr. Kamieneski, chairman of 

I ihe division. The additions have diminish- 

e eleciives and increased the hours 

required for the B.A. degree, making it 

I necessary to change the degree title to 

Unforiunatly. some P.E. majors 
already in the B.A. program feel it will 
be difficult to switch to the new program 
and plan to continue with their present 

Others just starting the progra n feel 
ne change is for the better. "I feel the 
lew degree is going to be very beneficial 

to all P.E, majors in the long run," said 
SDphmore P.E. major Janine Miller. 

The P.E. staff feel that the program 
will benefit everyone and hope for an in- 
crease in P.E. majors in the future. 

Along with this change in the program- 
ming of the HPER division, Dr. Ka- 
mieneski announced a new program just 
getting underway. He and Phil Garver, 
a teacher in the Physical Education 
Department, will be conducting a stress 
management workshop for the Chat- 
tanooga area to be held in the new com- 
munities service building. The series will 
be starting January 29 and will be 
meeting once a week on Thursday night 
for four weeks. 

Talks will explain how to deal with 
stress, the side effects of stress, and the 
audience will be given questionnaires t 

their stress levels and how they 
te against other people. 
Dr. Kameneski expect an audience of 
1-100 people and invite students as well 
the public to attend.

The .45 Cal. Approach to a Christian Education 

By Brent Van Arsdeli , 

The average American bank robber gels S3,048 in the average American bank rob- 
bery. An average commercial robbery will oel the criminal $625 in proceeds, and 
the average convenience store robber only gets $347. If the average S.C. student wanted 
to work his way through college using a Colt .45 to pay off his average S8,360 bill, 
he would have to rob 2.47 banks, 13.31 commercial establishments, or 24.09 Golden 
Gallons. When he's caught, he will average twenty years behind bars. No one ever 
said getting a college degree was going to be easy. 

Working your way (honestly that is) to a Christian education ought to be more 
common. Do you know anyone who has worked his way to a Southern College degree 
without loans? I don't know of any. Randy White, director of student accounts, knows 
one. White says that you can work your way through, but there are "very, very few 
people who do it." 

It hasn't always been this hard. Working your way used to be the in thing. The 
March 1956 issue of The Reader's Digest contained a story about a school that was 
then called Southern Missionary CoUege. The article was titled, "College With a Built- 
in Pocketbook" and it told about a school that had a very different financial 
philosophy than Southern College has today. In 1956, twenty five percent of the 
S.(M.}C. students worked their entire way through coUege. This was before the great 
bberal age of "free" government monQ-. It was an old fashioned age when you worked 
for your college education. Now you borrow for it. 

The last thirty years have brought dramatic changes to America. There have also 
been a few changes m the Seventh-day Adventist church. Test you knowledge of our 
changes in attitudes by taking this mini quiz. Match the author with the quote Who 
said, "we should shun debt Uke the plague," and who said, "neither a borrower or 
a lender be"? Was it (a)Shakespeare, (b)Solomon, {c)Sister White, (d) Randy White 
or (e)None of the above? 

Randy While, director of student accounts at S.C. says that there are two rather 
distinct groups of student borrowers. One group borrows about S4,000 per year for 
a tnrav„chool debt upon graduation of maybe $16,00^. Ajiother group borrows about 

a girl who also o 

maybe more. School loans can be a serious strain on marital bliss ! Randy White s 
the newlyweds "might end up doing nothing but fighting debt," what an unpleasant I 
thought. A college degree is a real asset, but "You can't use your diploma fori 
collateral." f 

A lot of things have happened to S.C. since the Digest editors wrote that "More I 
and more educators are casting an appraising eye twoard this unorthodox Souiherr 
College." S.C. sold off most of those industries that made it possible to work youi 
way through college. Attitudes have changed too. When a student faces a semester 
of hard work in the cafeteria washing dishes, he may find it much easier to spend 
1 minutes in the finance office signing for loans. In addition to loans, if your parents 
are poor enough and you're bright enough, you can get a lot of scholarship and grant 
(that usually means "free") money. If Uncle Sam offers you money, you'll probably 
be glad to get s ome return from my taxes. 

"To pay off an average bill a student would 
have to rob 24.09 Golden Gallons." 

I asked Randy WUte how a student could work his way through S.C. His response I 
was, "They're gomg to have to get busy right away, and find a job -- like through 
McKee s." It may be possible to pay for a degree without that kind of job but it 
wouldn't be easy. White continued, "1 know a kid who has done it, but he didn't I 
dale a lot, he didn't socialize a lot, he worked every time he got. On his days off I 
he would get jobs mowing lawns or cutting trees for people. He did not let any grass I 
grow under his feet. He'd go out and beat the bushes, and every time somebody had 
something for him to do he didn't say, "I have a date, or I'm tired-l've had a busy 
week", he got out there and did it and he has worked his way through " 

Many students would argue that sociahzing and making Christian friends, is as 
much a part of Christian education as class work. Would they be right?

^f the students? 

;man: "Yes and no. Yes they are performing and helping kids obtain loans, 

[^ don't believe they or the recruiters are informing the students of the seriousness 

>f borrowing money through financial aid. If you borrow that first $2,500 or so you 

■better be prepared to continue borrowing to obtain a degree. If you don't, you end 

|up dropping out, without a degree, and $7,000 or so in debt." 

Pastor: "I don't have any input on this subject. I have been fortunate enough not 
to have to deal with this office." 

Doctor: "I haven't had to deal with the financial aid office." 

Borrowing money to put a son/daughter through school can be frustrating. Have yon 
ever had any problems in dealing with the financial aid office? 

can be frustrating. They have not been uncooperative, just 

Pastor: "I haven't had to deal with the financial aid office." 
Doctor: "Thankfully I haven't had to deal with them." 

What do you think can be done to ease the burden of Bnancial costs of attendine an 
Adventist college? 

Businessman: "The college should involve more astute people in the Adventist business 
community to help try and decide some of their problems instead of leaving it up 
to religious leaders who have never had to deal with these problems in the real world 
Also bring in more industry so there are real jobs available for students instead of 
having to create jobs. I'm not sure the leaders of Southern College know how to 

Endowment Endeavors 

^hat The College Is Doing 

By Lynford Morton 

Finances necessary for the c 
school come from many sources. One 
of the most important places a college 
receives money is through gifts. These 
gifts, or endowments are sent to the 
Development office. The Development 
I office invests the money and the earnings 
, made available to students through 
financial aid. In addidon to receiving pre- 
[sent gifts, (gifts available for use right 
away) the Development office also 
receives deferred gifts or gifts specified 
"" be used at a certain time. For an ex- 
iple of a deferred gift let's pretend 
I , ■'"^ ^^s the unfortunate passing of a lit- 
Jlle old lady who we will refer to as Mrs. 
jamith. Mrs. Smith lived alone and was 
a typical semor citizen. She didn't hve in 
I an extravagant house although it was pro- 
bably comfortable. She probably spent 
I "lany a night knitting by the light of a 
Kerosene lamp, peacefully rocking in her 
^ntique chair. The heat from the fireplace 
warmed both her and the basset-hound 
purled at her feet. She had one living 
eiative, a niece who left a while back to 
80 live m ihe "big city". She was well 
■ and Uked by her neighbors and the 

community. Almost everyone was 
devastated to learn of her death. An even 
greater surprise was that in the reading 
of her wil it was discovered that Mrs. 
Smith left a substantial portion of her 
estate to Southern College. Mrs. Smith, 
a part of the Southern CoLege communi- 
ty, loved her school so much that she in- 
cluded it in her will and specified that the 
school receive SIOO.OOO; much more than 
she left her niece. Since the money was 
pledged to the school long before he 
death, but could not be used until then. 
It was referred to as a "deferred gift". 
This example isn't totally fictitious, a 
similar situation did occur. Although in- 
cidents like that of Mrs. Smith don't hap- 
pen every day. it isn't a rarity to have so- 
meone donate a large sum of money to 
the school. 

On the other side of the coin, all con- 
tributions are not large donations from 
millionaires and little old ladies. A good 
bit of the school's endowment comes 
from hardworking church members 


the Union. Members of church 
ithin the Southern Union will now I 
their donations in titi 

envelopes under a special endowment 
program sponsored by the Southern 
Union called "Project Safe". Pastors and 
conference workers within the union who 
contribute will have specified amounts 
taken out of their checks. Of the monies 
donated to Project Safe, Southern Col- 
lege will receive half and the union will 
get the other half, unless otherwise 
specified by the donor. S.C. faculty 
members have given and are continuing 

The endowment program has also ex- 
tended its campaign to the local Chat- 
tanooga area from which they hope to 
raise SI million. To put this in perspec- 
tive, the overall goal of the Development 
office is $10 million. Currently the en- 
dowment program has $3.3 million in- 
vested. The development office, however, 
will only use the money generated by the 
earnings on the investment. With interest 
rates running about 7 to 9 percent, it is 
expected that next year approximately 

— , — Federal 

. . . back from the school. As funds 
are cut the burden is placed on the en- 
dowment program to replace that money. 
How does a student take advantage of 
these gifts to the school? The money is 
disbursed throught the financial aid of- 
fice as part of a financial aid package. 
Students wishing to cash in on the money 
available will have to apply as if they were 
applying for financial aid. The school will 
disburse the money, as usual, on the basis 

Once students have received money 
from the endowment program, they are 
encouraged to write a thank you note to 
the donors. The Development office will 
be glad to furnish students with names 
and addresses of donors to whom they 
can send their thank you notes. Donors 
are always appreciative of such gestures 
of gratitude and are always anxious to see 
where their money is being spent. So if 
you should be the recipient of money 
from the endowment program, why don't 
you take a moment to say thanks.

Time Out 

Back Court- 

By Brett Hadley 
Southern College sports - they are as 
multi-dimensional as their name is. The 
collegiate intramural program here at 
Souihem is constantly moving, keeping 
up with all the hard hitting action that 
permeates the programs. Every perspec- 
tive can give a sports fan quite a bit of 

To begin the year, we saw our southern 
athletes go at it on the big diamond with 
fast paced rounds of superbly played 
Softball. Next, it was out to batUe on the 
ole' grid iron for some rack em' sack em' 
flagball (The rack em' sack em' is what 
happened to the referees). After flagball 
the wind blew in and the temperature 
began lo drop, so for the inside athletes, 
it was time to put up the nets and dig out 
some volleys for a Southern College 

favorite, volleyball. "A" league or "B" 
league, it didn't matter which you were 
in, just put your hand in a fist and swing 
at that genuine, imitation cowhide leather 
sphericle shaped piece of sporting ap- 
paratus. Of course if you wanted to see 
some real semi-intramuaralistic profes- 
sionalism you could go watch Bob(Mr, 
Spike) Foikenberg power smash people 
with his awesome spiking capabilities. 

But now, with all this behind us, the 
Southern CoUege sports scene takes yet 
another bold and excitmg turn for chills 
and thrills as we now stand face to face 
with the basketball season. That's right 
sports fans, I'm talking bout' basketball. 
Shootin hoop, backboards, jump shots, 
three point plays, and everything eke that 
makes basketball the great American

rid of that Harbrace grammar book and 
put things like "swish" and "fade-

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/February 5, 1987 - 


Sun, Sand and. . 

1 kept trying to convince myself that something was wrong. Somewhere, deep in 
my conscience, a small voice was whispering words of warning to me. But the moon 
was full, the sky was clear, the stars were out, and romance v/a.% in the air. 1 was 
taking a night walk on the beach with a beautiful, young, teen-age beach goddess 
that I had just met only hours ago. Somehow she detracted my attention from the 
"still small voice" in my conscience and isolated it on her.. ."perfect". ..body. 

As we were just coming off the beach, a cool breeze from the ocean swept in and 
caused her to cuddle up to me. I had just met Toni that morning and we had spent 
the entire day together being spontaneously frivolous. Now, after eight hours of 
frolicking beach fun, SI 5 for a gourmet dinner and a romantic moonlit walk on the 
beach, like an innocent lamb to the altar she led me to her father's van. I began to 
understand that she also wanted to spend the entire night together. Rivers of nervous 
sweat began flowing from my body. I felt like an awkward teen-ager at his first high 
school dance. 1 had not expected it to go this far! I had not made any prior decisions 
as to what 1 would do in this situation and for some reason it was extremely difficult 
at that point to think objectively. She opened the van door to reveal a blanket and 
pillow neatly placed inside. 1 was at DEFCON-4 an emotional stress level. I had to 
make a decision, quick! Would it be Toni or my moral values?...! chose... 

Pre-marital sex is something that each of us must decide either to participate in 
or abstain from. This decision can be based on.a person's own Christianity, morali- 
ty, psychology or a mixture of all three. To make an intelligent decision, the tradi- 
tional philosophies and idealogies from the older generation's school of wisdom must 
be evaluated and the desires, beliefs and questions of the younger generation must 
be reckoned with. 

To begin, why would one want to participate in pre-marital sex? It seems like a 
pretty obvious question doesn't it? Actually, there are many reasons young Americans 
engage in this activity. One reason would be peer pressure. Check out any local high 
school, (even some of our own academies) and you will find that the prevalent at- 
titude is that if you haven't done it yet your strange. Even here, on our own elevated 
collegiate level, intellectual advice such as, "Have you taken her up to Stonehenge 
and got it?" flows from the hps of our most distinguished relationship philosophers. 
Peer pressure is a very real motivation for pre-marital sex on all levels. 

Of course, there is always those kind of people who simply just cannot control 
their hormones. You've seen them in the library at the "National Geographic" shelf. 
All they ever think or talk about, it seems, are boys or girls, whichever the case may 
be, and sex. These people need profesional help and should be placed in Dr. Lamb's 
"Marriage and the Family" class. The point is that the controlling, or lack of con- 
trolling, one's own urges and desires can be a determining factor of engaging in pre- 
marital sex. 

A third reason is curiosity. You've heard all these wonderful things from most 
of your friends and you would like to discover for yourself what the experience has 
to offer. It seems logical that if so many people had a lot of "good" to say about 
sex, it can't be all that bad. Beware. Most people, even if they had a bad experience 
with pre-marital sex, would not tell you. 

There are couples who will say that sex just enhances theu- relationship and brings 
the two of them closer together. Admittedly, sex does have an ability to do that, but 
at the same time it also has the potential of adding a very sensitive and stressfull 

dimension that could eaiUy, in and of itself, brings an end to any relaf 

Another dimension of pre-marital the possible contraction of STDs7se^' 
ly Transmitted Diseases). A person who decides to be a sexually active i h- -^ I 
must acknowledge to himself that STDs are a high risk that he or she is takinT' 
being a sexually active person. STDs are very real, very present, and very abunda 
in todays sexual market. Talking honestly and openly about STDs with your narfn 
will definitely help you in prevention, and such open conversation can bring you a ri 
your partner closer together, ^'^ 

By now you're probably thinking to yourself, "I know all these things Hadlev 
TeU me something I don't know." My purpose here is not to bestow upon you Drn 
found insights concerning pre-marital sex. My goal is to remind you of some thin I 
that you already know, but maybe have not thought about it very much. It is iniDo^^ 
tanl that people think about the implications and ramifications of pre-maritalV" 
in order to make an intelligent decision~now. If you wait till the situation confront I 
you. it is more than likely that you will not be able to think clearly and unbiasW 
Do not blindly accept the "if it feels good, do it" philosophy. Evaluate the positive I 
and negative effects of pre-marital sex and its social, moral, physical and spiritual 
dimensions, then make an intelligent decision for yourself.

S.C. Senate Changes 
System Voting 

I By Jill Rice 

. The SA Senate passed a proposal to 

I change the Student Association election 

1. process this past week, 

I Previously candidates ran on an in- 

I dividual basis for each office. This system 

of election appeared on the surface to be 

efficient but actually contaiined a major 

J flaw. Candidates who won in the various 

I offices often found thai they had oppos- 

I ing views on how they felt the S.A. 

I should be run, and they found it difficult 

3 work together. 

The new system, according to Mike Ex- 

m, will consist of a ticket with three in- 

I dividuals working together under a 

nified platform. The effect will be a bet- 

_ -Jr organized and more effective Student 

I Association that will spend more time 

I working for the students rather than 

I against each other. 

Some have voiced worry that self- 
interest groups may be voted into power. 
Exum feels that people will vote in- 
telligently and this will not happen. "It 
is the voters responsibility to recognize a 
fad group." said Exum. 

The result that the senate hopes for is 
a more visible senate with a greater, more 
direct voice. The ruling power should be 
the senate according to the Student 
Association Constitution. 

Presently running for office are Steve 
Dobias for President, Mark McFaddin 
for Vice President, and Richard Moody 
for Social Vice President on one ticket. 
On the opposing ticket is Renou Korff for 
President, Jimmy Malone for Vice Presi- 
dent, and Jodi Larrabee for Social Vice

Gymnastics Team Presents 
Half Time Show At U.T.C. 

By Jill Rice 

On the evening of February 9, the Southern College Gymnastics team will have 
the chance to show their skill to probably their biggest audience yet. The gymnastic 
team will be one of the acts presented at the halftime show at the U.T.C. versus Ap- 
palachian State University basketball game. 

The team is looking forward to the show and feel that it will be a great challenge. 
"This will be the first lime we have been confined to a designated time space thai 
is incredibly short." said Coach Evans. They have exactly 7 minutes to lay out their 
mats, do the show, then pack up and get off the floor in time for the game to begin 
again. It will take a lot of speed and precision which Evans said is something they 
are not used to dealing with. 

The performance will consist of the routine usually done as their finale and will 
incude the whole team. They hope to be well recieved and are excited about the ex- 
tensive publicity they will be receiving and a probable increase in billings. 

The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. and w ill be held at the U.T.C. arena

) many people doing it? 

Pre-Marital Sex 

By Phil Carver ^-«». | 

It is surprising to see a topic such as this getting ink in our school paper I 
Why? Because normally, it is something you just don't talk about or writ I 
about. I would agree with that statement if young people were getting a eo ri I 
education about sex, human sexuality, the opposite sex, pre-marital sex 
traceptives and relationships from their parents. Parents should be the in I 
structors in these matters, and some parents are doing a good job. But a lot I 
of parents are reluctant or refuse to talk about these very important issues I 
with their children. This creates a void of knowledge that is going to get fill- 
ed with garbage, and harmful misinformation. 

I am happy to see this topic being brought out of the closet! Hopefully 
some innocent people will be saved some hurt and some good information 
will be shared. 
Questions this article will attempt to answer; 

1. If pre-marital sex is harmful, why ar 

2. What's wrong with pre-marital sex? 

3. How can I prevent pre-marital sex? 

4. If I've had pre-marital sex, am I doomed? 
To answer the first question, it seems that sex is no different that a lot of I 

the other don'ts. They all seem to present a challenge to the youth of today. 
Why do so many people eat what is bad for them? Why do so many people 
use drugs? Why do so many people cheat? The list could go on forever. It 
seems that the human's basic deterrent to wrong is fear! This is very sad, but I 
true. Humans abstain or change behavior when the fear level gets high enough. [ 
Why don't humans in the 20th century look at the consequences of alternate J 
actions, and choose the proper behavior? 

This is a sad commentary on today's society. You would think people would I 
learn from other's mistakes, but they don't. It took the fear of pregnancy! 
to help prevent pre-marital sex until we got rehable contraception. Herpes I 
put enough fear in people to prevent pre and extra-marital sex for a long ti 
Fear of AIDS has prevented a lot of homesexual activity. What will it be next? | 
Fear of getting caught has always been a deterrent. Fear shouldn't be y 
reason to abstain. Hopefully, it will be a choice based on the consequences I 
of alternate actions. People are conciously having pre-marital sex because thai I 
are selfish and self-centered, because they are today oriented rather than future I 
of eternal oriented and because they are choosmg to believe a lot of lies about | 
pre-marital sex. 

2. So what can be so wrong about a little sex before marriage? The follow- 
ing list seems sufficient to give an honest person an way out. 

A. It produces guilt! Guilt is one of the devil's greatest tools of discourage- j 
ment and hoplessness. Don't place yourself in jeopardy over guilt. It is e 
to say "No" to sex than to live with guilt. 

B. Fear of getting caught. Married people don't want to get caught having | 
sex, so how much more do you think getting caught puts pressure o 
pie before marriage? It is easier to say "No" to sex than to worry about get- 1 
ting caught. 

C. Fear of pregnancy. Yes, I know abortion is a way around this fear, but I 
it seems that anyone planning to use abortion to get out of a problem they I 
could have and/or should have prevented, has a real problem. It is easier to | 
say "No" to sex than to have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy. 

D. Women; pre-marital sex is, for the most part, male gratification and | 
female exploitation! Guys are usually using the girls and this is bad. Say "No" 
so you won't have to wonder if you are being used! 

E. Sex is an end for many males. Men will say and do most anything when I 
all they want is sex! Put with this the fact that women will put up with a lot I 
for security and love, and it becomes quite obvious that this is a very dangerous I 
situation. Say "No" and you won't have to worry about the motivating forces! I 

F. Females submit hoping to gain favor and security, and usually lose both! I 
Say "No" and develop security in other ways. This will make it much easier | 
for you to like yourself and live with yourself. 

0. Usually responsibility for the consequences isn't available. Responsibility I 
for emotional and financial needs for each other and a child, if conception I 
were to occur, are rarely found in couples before their mid twenties or after j 
they have completed their education and are settled down. Say "No" so your I 
education isn't interrupted and you can plan for your future and the future 
of your spouse and children. 

-February 5. 1987/SOUTHERN ACCENT/T 

A Major Malfunction 

H. Pre-marital sex may prevent a good sex relationship later in marriage. 
How? The old comparision problem. The potiental problems that can arise 
from comparing your lover to a previous lover is scarry. Don't place your 
future happiness in jeopardy through the possibiUty of comparisions of past, 
present, and future! It is much safer to say "No" and never compare! 

1. Usually the places that pre-marital sex take place are far from ideal. Say 

"No" to pre-marital sex and let you first place for sex be a honey-moon suite! 

J. The possibility for contracting a sexually transmitted disease is always 

I possible before marriage. The S.T.D.'s of today are scarrier than ever and 

I harder to cure. Say "No" to pre-marital sex and help prevent the spread of 

I sexually transmitted diseases. 

K. Sexually active young people seem togetlabeledandthistypeof reputa- 

ion is not positive. A reputation of being loose sexually can haunt a person 

I for life. At your 10, 20, and 40 year class reunions, what are people going 

to remember you by? A promiscuous little whatever, or a classy, quaUty per- 

ion? Say "No" to pre-marital sex and look forward to class reunions. 

What's wrong with pre-marital sex? Everything! 

3. How can young people today prevent pre-marital sex? 

A. Practice saying "No". Plan to say "No". Say "No". One of the best 
concepts that I have heard recently is the idea that "'No' is a complete 
sentence." When you say "No" to anything whether it be sex, or drugs, or 
cheating, you don't have to explain why. In fact, it is best if you don't say 

I anything else. Just "No" then there isn't any argument, no reasoning, no 
I weakness! Just "No". 

B. Plan on being in a group, not alone with your special friend. It's when 
I your alone that the temptations are the greatest. 

C. Don't read sexy novels! Don't look at sexy movies! Avoid all por- 
nography! These things are bad not only before marriage but after marriage 
as well. They create a lot of false expectations. They can become addicting 

! STAY AWA. : 

D. Keep a cose relationship with Christ. Ask for power. Ask tor a strong 
I will. You won't be tempted beyond what you can withstand with Christ's 
I power. This is a great comfort. 

E. Don't wear seductive clothes and then expect people not to want to touch! 
[t IS very dangerous to show your wares and expect people not to want to 

I handle them! Use discretion. Be modest. Modesty and good taste are 
I compatible. 

4. If you have made a mistake regarding pre-marital sex that doesn't mean 
rou are unclean, lost, or hopeless. All it means is that you made a mistake. 
Treat it hke any other serious mistake, ask forgiveness and beUeve that this 
mistake has been removed as far from you as the east is from the west. Forget 

I It. Move forward. No discussion is necessary with anyone. If you find yourself 
needmg to go through this forgiveness process on a regular basis, you may 
[ need to seek professional help, or change the relationship. 

The major argument in favor of virginity until marriage is this; Love Is 
Never For Self.'! If you "love" a person you will always want what is "best" 
for them. The "best" thing for single people is to "abstain". If you lovethem 
these things will wait! Sex will wait until the I Do's are said in pubUc! Because, 
until then, things could change and you could be sorry. 
There is no double standard, men! Why should you think you can sleep 
I around and some day find a virgin to marry? This attitude has been around 
oo long in America. Men and women should both think of then virginity 
s being priceless until marriage. Through planning, prayer, and good com- 
munication, this can be a reality! 

It would be wrong to discuss sex without pointing out that God gave us 
our sex d.ives, our sexual desires, and our attraction to the opposite sex. For 
tins we should thank God and never feel shame or guilt. But, along with these 
aesires Ood also gave humans minds to control their desires. It should be the 
goal of each young person to develop a desire and a will to withstand the 
temptations that are so powerful and prevalent about us today. 

Success breeds confidence and confidence breeds success. Future strength 
can be gamed through today's successes. Plan for your success and it can be 


8/SOUTHERN ACCENT/ February 5, 1987 - 

By Ronald M. Springett 

Sex is perennial topic of discussion 
these days and that's not bad. Healthy 
discussion of sexuality may help us to 
understand ourselves as weL as others. It 
is a topic of great interest because 
everyone knows sometiiing about it, and 
people Hke to discuss what they know. 
Not only does everyone know about this 
topic but everyone experiences sexuality, 
though not necessarily sexual intercourse, 
and is therefore naturally curious about 

In our topic there are two operative 
words, sex and marriage. 1 will b^in with 
the term "sex." What is sex anyway? 
Most people think they know the answer 
and, perhaps, therein lies the danger. It's 
not what you don't know that will harm 
you in this area but what you think you 

When we enter the world and see the 
hght of day, a phase of sexual develop- 
ment begins. We start to develop sex 
roles. That is to say, we are differentiated 
as masculine or feminine. MascuUnity 
and femininity are for the most part 
learned social behaviors. In various 
societies certain things are expected if one 
is mascuUne and certain other things if 
one is feminine. Some of this cultural 
baggage is helpful in esublishing sexual 
identity and some of it is irrelevant. 

By the time we reach puberty most of 
us are well integrated socially as "boys" 
or "girls." Powerful hormones enter the 
bloodstream and produce drastic 
changes. We need not go into' details, for" 
most of us this is history, for some of us 
its ancient history. 

It is at this lim^ that the learned sex 
role and the newly developed sex drive are 
integrated. This process sometimes pro- 
duces tension and considerable excite- 
ment and frustration. Assuming the in- 
dividual to be biologically normal, most 
of the pressure and tension will be focus- 
ed on the culturally learned roles which 
define the limits of acceptable mascuhne 
and feminine behavior. This learned 
behavior should not be underestimated. 
It is not easily thrown aside because socie- 
ty polices it and exacts "fines" and 
"punishments" for infractions. The key 
question is how to balance body, mind 
and spirit and not allow one aspect to 
totally control the others. What we are 
trying to say here is that sex is more than 
abiological act. It also has psychological, 
sociological, cultural, intellectual, 
spiritual and personal dimesions which 
we can learn to appreciate and enjoy. 
These in turn enhance the more physical 
aspects of a relationship. In our society 
the biological side of sexuality is over- 
rated and given too much weight. This 
often leads to demands for premarital 
sex. A relationship heavily dependent or 
ahnost solely relying on the physical 
aspect of the sexual relationship is out of 
balance and rests on a precarious 

Now, we tura to the other operative 
word m out topic, "marriage." On the 
basis of what we have said above it could 
be one of two things, a) a piece of cultural 
baggage or b) sexual intercourse, a 
tJiological act. 

For the Christian marriage is much 
more than thU. For the Christian couple 
sex and marriage give them an opportuni- 
to ««cise in the most meaningful way

And Now, 

create in their own image. The key word 
is "freedom." They are free to develop 
the marriage and their sexual relationship 
as they will, informed by certain 
guidelines and principles in God's Word. 
This sounds at first as if God gives 
freedom and then takes it back. He tells 
us we are free and then tells us what to 
do. We need to understand that for man 
there is no such thing as absolute 
freedom. Freedom for man means 
freedom of choice. We choose this option 
over that option or no option at all. Not 
to choose is still a choice. Let's look at 
the bibhcal background. 

Sex is God given. This means that man 
was made for or complementary to 
woman and vice versa. Man was made in 
the image of God and woman was taken 
from man but she is not in man's image. 
She also is made in the image of 
God. (Gen 1:27) "So God created 
man(kind) in his image, in the image of 
God he created him; male and female he 
created them." This text is saying that it 
takes both man and woman to fully 
reflect the image of God. Either one 
atone does not do this. Man and woman 
there would be no mankind. Therefore to 
be human is to share humanity with the 
opposite sex. But this does not necessarily 
mean marriage. Man and woman in sim- 
ple communion and fellowship represent 
the image of God. We should rid 
ourselves of the cultural baggage which 
says that man or woman is not fully man 
or woman unless they marry or hop into 
bed with someone. Both man and woman 
were created in the image of God and 
they are this without engaging in sexual 
activity or participating in procreation. 

In the Bible the blessing of procreation 
is quite distinct from being made in the 
image of God (Gen 2:18,24). This means 
that God stands in a relation of freedom 
to man as far as sexual expression and 
procreation are concerned. Man is free to 
express himself sexually and procreate at 
will. But he will need to be advised on 
how to use this powerful drive so that he 
does not destroy himself nor abuse others 
and thereby harm and dehumanize the 
society in which he lives and on which he 
depends. It is vital to understand this in 
a discussion of premarital sex. The Bible 
leads us to understand that man in his 
present state is incapable of using this gift 
positively and constructively without 
some guidance. What the question really 
boils down to is whose advice shall we ac- 
cept. We are free to choose, but with 
freedom always and inevitably comes the 
responsibility to accept the consequences 
of our choice. In the biblical context this 
responsibility as, what is best for the 
other person, commitment to the other 
person, what is for God's glory and 
honor, which action has the greatest 
potential for good, and which has the 
greatest potential for harm. 

In stark contrast to this good deal of 
premarital sex today is entered into on the 
unspoken but very real assumption that 
this is sex without responsibility or com- 
mitment. Both partners engaging in a sort 
of mutual exploitation of the other for 
the thrill of the moment. This is decidedly 
less than Christian and behevers with any 
ethical convictions at aU would have to 
counsel against it. 

In the Bible, God stands over against 
His creation. There is a gap between 
them. No material continuity. Nature 


- February 5, 1987/SOUTHERN ACCENT/9 

Word From 

(man) is not part of God neither is God 
part of creation. Man obeys God and (he 
laws of nature freely-of his own choice. 
There is no material necessity which 
determines that man has to obey God. As 
Jesus said, " — the sun shines on the just 
and on the unjust." Nature is not 
manipulated by God to make man obey 
him. The Bible says that God created man 
free-without strings-and endowed him 
with the ability to think and choose. It 
is in exercising these and other God given 
gifts (freely) according to God's will that 
brings us closest to our full human po- 
tiental and gives the greatest honor and 
glory to God^The God of the Bible is all- 
mighty too but with a crucial difference. 
He chooses to (freely) limit His power 
due to ethical and moral considerations 
for His creatures. Those who truely 
beUeve that He is the God of the universe 
will do the same, "Love is of God," "We 
love Him because He first loved us," 
"Love one another as I have loved you," 

This brings us back to our main point, 
which in my opinion cannot be over- 
emphasized. God created us free with 
respect to sexual expression. We are free 
to have sex or not to have sexual relations 
with a person of the opposite sex. We are 
free to bring children into the world or 
not to bring children into the world. 
These experiences neither enhance nor 
diminish our status and standing as men 
and women in the image of God. If we 
make no choice, no problem. 

Problems may arise if we decide to do 
them. In this case the Christian, like God, 
must control the powers he exercises by 
means of ethical and moral decisions. We 
cannot do anything we hke and suggest 
that it is acceptable because it was done 
in "love." Because love, like the Golden 
Rule, is not much help outside of the 
biblical context, it may even be an evil. 
If love is allowed to dictate or to discover 
its own standards or patterns of conduct 
as I see fit, it becomes just what I want 
it to be, nothing more nothing less. That 
is why the word love in our society has 
become a semantic swamp which means 
virtually anything. For the Christian, love 
is the fulfilling of the law. It is tied to 
God's will for us, to the guidance He has 
provided. Christian love always operates 
in the context of revelation, it is not its 
own law nor its own moral monitor. 
There is always an outside reference 
point. God's will stands over against us 
as guidance, but we are still free to choose 

That is to say the Christian is one who 
has entered a covenant relationship with 
God. He sees that God has placed sexual 
expression in his power. Sexual conduct 
lies squarely in the sphere of human 
freedom and responsibihty. A sphere in 
which man has freedom and dominion 
but within his covenant obligations to 
God. Or to put it another way, the 
fashion in which man lives his sexuality 
is not independent of his covenant rela- 
tion to God. This is demonstrated in 
numerous Scriptural stories and their out- 
comes, eg., Joseph and Potiphar's wife 
(Gen. 39), David and Bathsheba (1 Kings 
1), Absalom and Tamar (2 Sam 13) the 
last item a case of premarital sex, 
although more in the nature of "date 
rape." All these stories indicate that sex 
is not an awesome force over which man 
has no control but, on the contrary, show 
that he is responsible for his exercise of 
this God given gift. 

Is preniarital sex wrong? For the Chris- 
tian, the short answer has to be yes. The 
potiental for harm is much greater than 
the potiental for good. This is so for the 
simple reason that sexual intercourse is 
not just a biological genital act. In 1 Cor. 
7:14 Paul says, "-the wife does not rule 
over her own body but the husband does; 
likewise the husband does not rule over 
his body but the wife does." What does 
this mean? He gives us a clue in chap.6 
vv.l6ff. where he says, "Do not know 
that he joins himself to a prostitute 
becomes one body with her? For as it is 
written, 'The two shall become one.'" 
The he continues, "Shun immorality, 
every other sin which a man commits is 
outside the body; but the immoral man 
sins against his own body." Here Paul 
shows an insight in to human sexuality 
which is exceptional by 1st century A.D. 
standards. He insists that sexual inter- 
course is an act which by reason of its 
very nature, engages and expresses the 
whole personality in such a way as to con- 
titute a unique mode of self disclosure 
and self 


nication, or sex outside the c 
and responsibility of marriage dehvers a 
double whammy to the persons so involv- 
ed. First of all the Christian considers 
himself united to Christ in mind and 
spirit, but by illicit sexual relations he 
compromises that union and his effec- 
tiveness as a Christian influence is jeopar- 
dized if not destroyed. King David lost 
almost all influence in directing his 




Bathsheba. God forgave His son (PF 
chap. 71) but did not remove the conse- 
quences. (PP chap 72). 

Secondly, the individual sins against 
himself in the sense that the individual 
with whom he has sex is joined with him, 
he is one body with her. (The two shall 
become one). Paul uses the language of 
marriage here although he well recogtiizes 
that this is not marriage. The person with 
whom we have sexual relations outside of 
marriage does not claim over us. The in- 
tial sexual union is of such a nature that 
even, or perhaps we should say especial- 
ly, outside of marriage it lays open to the 
partner the most intimate, sensitive and 

may be denuded or calloused or scarred 
for life. In the sex act outside of marriage 
we do commit our intermosi selves our 
reputation and all that we stand for into 
another persons hands for good or ill, 
whether we like it of not. We are not se 
free, not so much our own person after 
the act as we were before. Anyone who 
has been blackmailed by a previous sex 
partner whether psychologically or other- 
wise can offer convincing testimony to 
this. The Christian will avoid premarital 
sex because he does not want to play Rus- 
sian roulette with his relation with Christ, 
nor with the Uves and emotions of others, 
nor with the future wife and family. 
Freedom is scary, especially when there 
are powerful, pleasing and persuasive 
forces that tempt and tantalize, we are 
free to do as we wish, but we cannot lay 
the consequences at God's door of we 
have refused to follow his advice. As 
Milton said, "None can love freedom 
heartily, but good men; the rest love not 
freedom, but license.

have come and talked to me." 

Where do you think the problem of pre-marital sex starts? 

Doctor: "It starts mainly from hormones, but peer pressure plays an important part 

Mother: "Where the home is concerned the problem starts when c

Doctor; "Very disappointed." 

Mother: "1 would be upset, then I would talk to them and find out why they did

This is a hard question to ask any parent because it is an emotional issue, I would 
make sure that my son/daughter was careful not to ruin their life." 

Businessman: "If it were my son, I would hope that he knows what he is doing. I 
hope he understands all the pitfalls and ramifications that pre-marital sex can bring. 
Right or wrong, most fathers would react differently if it was their daughter. That

don't supply that kind of information to their fathers."

Businessman: "First of aU, I think sexual activity is down from ten years ago. Betler|

Mother: "I would tell my son/daughter to read their Bible first and follow H

Time Out 

Will Walker Walk All Over Us? 

By Jill Rice 

Saturday night, February 7 at 7:30 
p.m.. Southern College will play its an- 
nual basketball game against the Walker 
Correctional Institute, in the Institutes 

Once every year coaches Evans and 
Jaecks handpick 8 players from AA 
teams to face the challenge that Walker 
Institute repeatedly offers us. The correc- 
tional facility provides its own officials 
for the games and usually wins! "They 
are- very good players!", said Jaecks, 
"Their officials are top notch!" 

The audience is made up of inmates 
and guards who are reportedly very en- 
thusiastic. This tends to dampen the 
Southern College team spirit a bit. 

When asked whether or not he is ap- 
prehensive about the game, Mike Her- 
shberger said "No, I'm excited about go- 
ing, it will be a new experience, but I have 
a feeling we are going to get crashed, 
because they have a lot of time to prac- 
tice." Good luck Southern College!

The Cappucino Kid 

"I wonder if she knows how beautiful 1 think she is," I was thinking to myself 
as I peered over the glass of Cappucino that I held in both hands. "I wonder if she 
realizes the effect that her gende, mysterious gaze has on me when I look into her 
eyes." I played with everything from my fork to the salt shaker as we talked about 
trivial issues of our lives. She laughed when my amazing feat of balancing the salt 
shaker on its edge ended in disaster as salt tumbled down and made a small mess. 
"What are you thinking?" She asked me. "Here's my chance," I thought to myself . 
"I can tell her just how I feel," I wanted to tell her how good it felt to be with her 
and how there was this warm feeling she gave me that I had not felt since I could 
remember. These words started in my heart, worked their way up my throat and came 
out in a brilliant statement, "I was just thinking about how I wish I could speak 
Italian. " My insides screamed at " "

the college.

when she found a place ti 
you can remember?" Immediately the emotional dimension of my body screamed 
"tell her it's the times you spend with her you insensitive, spineless jellyfish!!" Again, 
the words choked up my throat and came out all wrong. "Oh, I can't think of anytime 
right off hand." I said. Knowing that she must have been impressed with my deep, 
intelligent answer, I wanted to crawl underneath the ash tray. I knew that I probably 
would not have another opportunity such as this to express my true feelings. How 
often it is that in foolish shyness, we say so little and miss out on so much. I couldn't 
help but think about all the opportunities to tell her how much I really cared for 
her and how I let them pass by. It was hard; I wanted to just explode with it at times. 
Then the religion major came out in me, and I began to think, "This must be how 
God feels sometimes." Ail through life, God wants to teU us how much he really 
cares for us. Everytime we glance at the Bible or utter a quick, one-sided prayer, 
God wants to scream at us about His love. One day, a very special day. He did just 

Dangers of Dobias? 

Dear Editor: 

I was in chapel this past Thursday listening to the speeches 
given by the hopefuls nmning for next year's S.A. officers. Most 
of the speeches were either cute, enthusiastic, or mundane. 
However, some of the statements made by Mr. Steve Dobias, 
hopeful running for S.A. President, to some extent alarmed me. 
It seems that his platform is based on "Bringing a unity among 
all the offices, including C.A.R.E." At fu-st glance this may seem 
to be a noble effort, but, with a little deeper look, the dangers 
of these words come to surface. 

To begin with, it seems to me that Mr. Dobias feels that all 
the other S.A. offices fall under the control of the Presidency- 
constitutionaly speaking, this is not correct. After talking with 
some of this year's S.A. officers, it is evident to me, through 
their expressions, that Mr. Dobias plans to have a hand in the 
running of the other S.A. offices, through i 
stipulations placed on the other S.A. offices. There i 
dent for this. 

If Mr. Dobias has plans of how ihe Memories or the Southern 
Accent or any other S,A. office should be handled, then he 
should have run for those offices and not expected to be able 
to have control of them as S.A. President, it simply does not

work that way. 

Each S.A. officer is in control of his own particular office 
and holds the responsibilities of that office-success or failure, 
it is his own responsibility, not that of the S.A. President. Yoij 
must allow for the individuality of ail the S.A. officers to run 
then- offices as they see fit, not as the S.A. President sees fit, 
he was not elected to their offices. 

1 would hate to imagine havuig an S.A. President who tried 
to have control in all the offices of S.A. , which seems to be what 
Mr. Dobias has in mind when he plans to bring all the offices 
into unity under the S.A. 

1 know that most of the students here at Southern do not get 
very involved in the political aspects of their school. 1 do beUeve, 
however, that this election, with the new ticket voting system, 
IS one that the students cannot afford to apathetically pass by. 
The students need to look beyond the trivial entertainments of- 
fered as tokens to the student body into the philosophies ex- 
pressed by the DM2 ticket. They are far reaching and have 
potential, in my opinion, for damage and demise of student 
voice, individuality, and power.

the event, beginning at 6:30. 

When asked about his thoughts on 
winning the award Jaecks said, "In be- 
ing recognized as Chattanooga's softball 
player of the year puts me in some elite 
company. Ted Evans, known throughout 
the community as the 'best' has won the 
award twice. To be recongnized in the 
same manner is indeed a great honor. It 
also has been gratifying to recieve a 
number of congradulatory remarks from 
many people from the city of Chat- 
tonooga. I guess it is nice to be recogniz- 
ed outside our own institution. I'm also 
glad to see that some of the faculty here 
at Southern read the sports section. I have 
also appreciated their compliments. 
Looking at the total picture I hope the 
school is proud of the representation that 
both Evans and myself have given in the 
Chattanooga community.

New Phone System Finalized 

By John Beckett 
After several delays we have obuined 
commitments from all parties concerned 
and have a schedule for the installation 
of our new PBX telephone system. It will 
be installed during Spring Vacation. 
Scheduled "cutover" date is March 4. 
Dormitory rooms will be disconnected 
beginning March 2, so in some cases they 
may be out of service for a couple of 

The new system is a Mitel Sx-2000 
PBX. This system is on the cutting edge 
of technology, and is the first system of 
this kind in the Chattanooga area. It will 
be installed and serviced by RCA Service ; 
Company, which handles telephone j 
systems for many motels and hotels 
across the country. 

This new PBX wiU bring virtually all 
telephone service in the college into a 
single system, simplifying use for all of 
us. Highlights: 

1 . Any PBX phone can caU any other 
PBX phone by dailing four digits. To call 
Thatcher HaU, dial 2'room number. To i 
call Talge Hall, dial 3'room number. To 
call a room in the Conference Center, add 
2400 to the room number. For offices, 
precede the old three-c 

6. Students will be able to make AT&T 
credit card calls from dormitory rooms 
by dialing 9'0'number. When the "bong" 
is heard, dial the credit card number if 
you have true touch tones on your 
telephone. If you don't have touch tones 
(or if your "touch tone" phone is a fake 
as most of the cheap ones are), just wait 
a moment and an operator will be on the 
line to take your credit card number. 

Panel Discusses 
Black History 

By Jill Rice 
Why does Southern College have a 
I Black History Week? What purpose does 
I It serve? Will it increase or decrease pre- 
I judice at our school? 

These are some of the many questions 

-hat were attempted to be answered at 

J 11:00 this morning by a panel of in- 

I dividuals who hoped to make the theme 

Of Black History Week, "Working 


ring t: 

The panel discussion group was make 
up of three students and three non- 
students, and was mediated by Elder 
Maurice T. Battle. The students includ- 
ea tugene Korff. Bob Folkenberg. and 
^^A ^"^"- "^he non-students includ- 
L '^"f' 3 Meriwether (citizen from col- 
TOale). Jeanette Bryson (Dean of 

omen), and Elder Peay (the Health and 

Temperance leader for the Southern 
Union Conference). 

The question and answer session was 
approximately 40 minutes long and dealt 
with the meaning of Black History Week 
and its advantages. Questions were 
selected from the entries placed into the 
question boxes in Talge and Thatcher 
halls and the student center on campus. 

Larry Williams, professor of Sociology 
and co-sponsor with Olson Perry of the 
Black Student Club, feels that the panel 
discussion will benefit rather than harm 
the effechof Black History Week. "A 
question aiid answer panel discussion has 
the potential of answering questions that 
would not be brought up or answered 

2. All incoming calls may be dialed 
direct. Should a caller dial 238-21 1 1 they 
will get the swithboard, and the swit- 
chboard will be able to connect the call 
to the proper extension (in the case of a 
dormitory room, the caller will be asked 
to redial the number themselves). 

3. The numbering scheme for 
telephones in dormitory rooms will be 
corrected where it differs from the 
scheme outlined above. 

4. To dial outside for a local or long- 
distance call, dial 9 first. This is the ac- 
cess code used in most PBX systems 
elsewhere (presently, offices dial 2 to get 

5. In the new system students may 
make local calls from dormitory rooms. 
This capability will be subject to certain 
limitations: We may have no more than 
1 calls to 396-numbers (this does not in- 
clude calls dialed from 396-numbers) in 
progress at any one time. Additionally, 
we may have no more than 5 calls to 
Chattanooga numbers at any one time 
(again, not including calls dialed from 
Chattanooga numbers). Offices and 
hallway phones will not be subject to 
these limitations, nor do they count in the 
quotas mentioned. These quotas will be 
handled automatically by the system. 

9'0'number and tell the operator that this 
is a collect call. 

8. Students will not be able to make 
long distance calls and charge them to 
their statements. The college has no plans 
to make this capabihty available. 

9- It will no longer be possible for 
students to obtain "outside" lines in most 
cases. The abihty to dial local calls and 
use a credit card for long distance should 
take care of this need. We suggest that 
all students with outside Unes cancel those 
lines effective March 4. 

10. The new PBX will have over an 
hour of battery power available. This is 
to accomodate situations in which Wright 
Hall is temporarily without power. We 
are considering obtaining a generator for 
long-term outages. 

11. We will be able to trace many 
abusive calls. 

12. We will be publishing a revised 
campus telephone directory, timed to 
coincide with the installation of the new 
system. It will use a new typesetting pro-

New Orleans: The Aftertaste 

By Gene Krishingner 
Thatcher Hall came alive last Sun- 
day as the sounds and smells of a hun- 
dred primping women all trying to 
look their best, filtered through the 
air. The day of the S.A. Sweetheart 
Banquet had arrived and by 5:30 that 
evening couples started arriving at the 
Chattanooga Choo-Choo for a 
"Taste of New Orleans." For those 
who went it was an occasion they will 
never forget; one of simplt 
grace, charm, and caji 

Comments could be heard like, "I 
can't believe she's going with him," 
or "Look, her slip is showing, "as the 
events of the Champagne Reception 
started flowing. An ice sculpture of 
a New Orleans river boat caught im- 
mediate attention, while couples 
mingled around, laughing and chat- 
ting casually. Live background music 
provided by the Southern College 
String Quartet softened the mood, as 

tuxedo and evening dress mingled arm 
in arm. An appetizer bar with deep- 
fried mushrooms, fresh fruit, im- 
ported cheese, and fake champagne,^ 
added another dimension to the even- 
ing and as soon as all the pictures were 
taken, the procession moved to the 
Imperial Ball Room. 

In the ball room, couples seated 
themselves in tables of eight, while 
Obed and Alexis Cruz played softly 
on the piano, setting the mood and 
warming the atmosphere. The tables 
held a plate of raw vegetables and 
herb dip, tossed salad, raspberry 
vinegarette, decaffeinated tea and cof- 
fee. The main course, which was 
unusually good, consisted of Fri-Chic, 
dirty rice (with. Creole sauce), cajun 
brockley spears, and lemon-mint glaz- 
ed carrots. To top it all off, 
Mississippi-mud pie was served for 
desert. Nobody finished hungry, and

soon everyone was wiping tjieir 
mouths and kicking back in tlieir 

A few of the couples started getting 
restless while waiting for everyone to 
finish their meal, and snuck off to 
isolated place to stare in each 
other's eyes. After a short break, 
everyone returned to the Ball Room 
for the entertainment. Scott, a junior 
at Ooltewah High School, did a 
hilarious imitation of Michael 
Jackson with his side-kick puppet 
monkey. People were rolling on the 
floor with laughter, as he danced and 
twitched around to the speeded up 
music. Then he returned to the stage 

. Hev 

as a stand up comedi 
accepted by the audience and most 
thought he did a "Marvelous" job. 
Not everyone appreciated his wild an- 
tics, but even the solemn few had to 
chuckle occasionally. 

The theatre section of the buildine 
remained vacant, except for a few lost 
couples who didn't give a care what 
else was going on. The movie, "Ym 
Can't Take It With You," was held 
in the Ball Room instead of the 
theatre because of technical dif- 
ficulties. (Some say it was because ol 
money, but who could prove it)? The 
movie was cute, but who was wat- 
ching it anyway? Couples cuddled up

close in the darkness of the room and 
by the time the movie was over it was 
close to 11:30. 

Finally, back in Thatcher Hall the 
couples returned dreamily from their 
romantic evening. Kisses were long, 
and the deans had to practically pull 
people apart to prevent suffocation. 
Almost everyone said they really en- 
joyed the banquet; some said it was 
the best one ever. One said, "It was 
a blast, and very elegant." Another 
said "I was glad it wasn't all dragged 

out like most banquets, i really had 
a lot of fun." Most people were also 
impressed with the food. Comments 
like, "The food was excellent," ex- 
caped a few people's mouths. AH 
said, it was a superior banquet! When 
asked what there favorite thing about 
the evening was, someone said, "my 
date." I guess that's what really 
makes or breaks a good banquet. 
Anyway, I know I had a great time, 
and I am sure everyone else did also.

Spirit of Indigestion Yet to Come 

By Brent Van Arsdell 

I'm not just griping. I remember the bad old days at the CK. The Campus 
Kitchen was much smaller than it is now, and if the food happened to be good, 
the wall paper would make you sick. It was decorated in what people called 
"sick aqua blue green" colors. The building improved a lot when it was 
renovated back in '83. But the service and cleanliness are still like the old 
CK. Some things just don't seem to change. 

The gif] who rang my order into the computer at the CK this morning, was 
reading the Reader's Digest. She was getting paid to read Drama in Real Life! 
In case you were wondering, tables were left uncleaned. 

-8/SOUTHERNACCENTy F,K„.„.^. ,j 

The dirt at the CK is enough to 
make anyone disgusted who is us- 
ed to the cleanliness of the average 
McDonald's or Taco Bell. 

The Campus Kitchen is a generally ...(use your own experience to fill in 
a word) place to eat for several reasons. The first reason why the CK is a 
marginal food outlet is that the top administrators of the school don't eat 
there. I'm not saying that President Sahly, Dr. Allen, Ken Spears, or food 
service director Earl Evans have never eaten there, it's just that I've never 
seen them there. Besides, if Dr. Sahly misses lunch does he sneak down to 
the CK and order a Sam's Chicken sandwich when he could eat at home? 
Students don't usually have that option. 

The second reason is lack of a profit motive. Should the manager, Mrs. 
Weisner, work hard to improve service if it will make absloutely no difference 
in what she gets paid. It doesn't matter if students are mad about the food 
quality, the dirty floors, great food, and fast service, when you have a vutual 

son for lack of quaUty and service at the CK is tha, ,k

The dirt at the CK is enough to make anyone disgusted who is used tn ,1, I

talks a lot about the letters Q.S.C v.. They stand for"qua ty seSl 
cleanhness and value. Every burger flipper and order taker knows „ha75' 
about. But if the CK has a credo, it isn't obvious ' ' 

Service is not a priority at the CK. People don't just wait for their nrj I 
to arrive, they age while they're waiting. Is cleanhness a goal at the CK° v 
gotta be kidding! This morning while I was eating there, the order taker l?L 
reading her homework. There were at least three dirty taoles requinng cfcan I 
up that I could see. In the chance that you might be reading this ovefS' 
I won't go into details. """■ I 

Analyzing the CK for value is a much more subJecUve process. Convenieni, I 
food IS worth a modest premium if it's fast and good. It's worth somelSm I 
to be able to eat in a clean restaurant. Service by courteous people is aiC I 
predated. Smce the CK dc 
I also find value lacking. 

The food service that should be exceUent, is only marginally adeouatc A 
Christian college with southern hosphality ought to be outstanding even ii 
Its humblest dining establishment. Why can't a great place to get an educi I 
tion, be a great place to get lunch? ' 

The responbility for improvement rests with our leaders. Perhaps the ci 
lege administration has neglected to devise an incentive system for the CK I 
manager. Perhaps the food service director doesn't aUow the CK managti I 
enough autonomy. Maybe the manager feels stifled by the bureaucracy and I 
doesn't care any more. Whatever the reason, quality, service, cleanliness, and I 
value are defimtely not in attendance at the CK. Things should change

This Saturday night Oakwood Col-

to take on the Southern College ' 
basketball all-star team. This is the s< 
cond year that this has ever been done 
and it is destined to be one of the 
season's greatest events. 

Two games will be played; first, a 
Oakwood vs. Southern girls all-sta 
will kick of the evening festivities a

test of the playing abilities of c 
Southern girls. Following this will be |

By Brett Hadley 

Last Saturday night, the hand pick- 
ed elect of Southern College's In- 
tramural "AA" league traveled to 
Walker County Correctional institute 
to battle the inmates there in an all 
out, fast-paced basketball game. 

The event began at 7:30. Walker 
started strong by winning the jump- 
off and immediately taking a seven 
point lead. Barely into the game the 
gallant warriors from Southern were 
down 15-8. An onslaught of jump- 
shots, rebounds, and fast breaks fill- 
ed the first 20 minutes of the game, 
and when the buzzer sounded to end 
the half, the boys from CoUegedale 
had fought back to gain an eleven 
point lead. 

The second half was as fast and 
furious as the fu-st. With both teams 
crushing the boards, driving inside 
and wrestling underneath it was evi- 

dent that both teams intended to take 
no prisoners. 

Things looked well for CoUegedale 
with Mark McKinsey driving hard and 
leading the team in scoring with 28* 
points. Steve Vogel was not far 
behind with his gallant effort of 27 
points. Rob Bovell also broke out 
against Walker by crushing 22 points 
through the hoop for CoUegedale. 
With only eight minutes left the 
Southern gents found themselves with 
a 13 point lead with the score of 

But alas, all good things must come 
to an end, and so it was for the Col- 
legedaie teams lead. Somewhere in the 
final minutes of the game the tide 
turned and washed our Southern boys

dry winning the game 100-95. 
Another match, however, is schedul- 
ed for March 12.

"Space Odyssey" 

By Dana Knecht 
A very special afterglow was 
presented on Friday, February 6, in 
Ihe cafeteria in front of a standing 
room only crowd. 

This special presentation of 
"Space Odyssey" was the brainchild of 
afterglow director Kimberiy Dye. 
Kimberly began working on the 
presentation in January in hopes that it 
luld present a very good point to 
ise attending. 

The skit was centered around 

Cheneweth and Paul Scalzo) who, on 
an outer space mission discovered 
Heaven. There, Celestian (Dan 
Shields) and Clariona (Shelley 
Whitson) greeted the astronauts and 
showed them all the wonderful things 
Heaven had to offer. They were then 
instructed by Gabriel (Mark Cox) to 
go back to earth and tell others what 
they would be mission by not 
accepting Christ. 

"I really liked the play because 
it was humorous and yet had a real 

'Asironauis" Ed Cheneweth and Paul Scalzo provide spiritual insight 

those hstening," responded Kimberly 
when asked why she chose to do this 
skit. "Peoplejust don't realize what 
God really has for them in Heaven." 

Hot chocolate was served for 
the lucky few who got there early, but 
the supply quickly ran out. 

"We only planned on about 60 
people and the place was packed," 
Kimberiy stated. 

Many people were involved in 
making the presentation possible. 
Participants included: Trina Gentry 
(Astronaut's wife), Pat Hawkins 
(control tower 
voice). Honey Baker 

(narrator). Jingle Drapiza (sound 
effects), Eduardo Mack (pre-taping), 
and Randy Wallers (props). Those 
who helped were greatly appreciated. 

Bob Folkenberg and May 
Orquia were a big help to Kimberly 
both in P.R. and just moral support. 
A big thanks goes to everyone who 
come for making the skit a success. 

This is only one of many 
planned afterglow activities. They 
meet every Friday night following

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/Febraary 19.1987- 



The midday sun was shimmering down through gusts of wind that whipped the 
flag into a billowing frenzy. As I gaze at the flag Hutlering in the breeze I decide 
to skip studying for my New Testament test and venture out into the cold water with 
my windsurfer. Once at the iaite I rig my board, the wind almost grabbing the sail 
from my grasp as I attept to tighten the mainsheet. I stuff myself into my restraining 
wetsuit, drag my surfboard into the frigid water, attach the sail, climb onto the teeter- 
ing board, pull up the sail and zip off into the two-foot white caps. The wind pulls 
at my sail as I lean my body closer to the water, now my windsurfer accelerates as 
if propelled by an outboard motor. 1 strain to keep my hands on the wishbone shaped 
boom. My body, now lying only inches from the freezing water, brushes against the 
rolling waves that a speedboat has just left in its path. I bend my back and dip my 
head into the water only to have the wind drop suddenly dumping me into the icy 
abyss. As I climb back onto my board, ihe wind starts up into a full gale and I streak 
off, only touching the tops of the myriads of whicecaps enjoying the speed, excite- 
ment, and freedom of windsurfing. 

To enjoy such a sports as windsurfing, tennis, swimming, raquetball, and a host 
of other demanding activities one must be in somewhat good physical shape. But 
exercising isn't the only key to being in good physical shape, eating right plays a more 
important role than most people think. As the saying goes, "You are what you eat" 
and this holds true for the most part. To be as physically fit as one can be, one must 
eat the right foods. Staying away from sugar and foods that are high in fat and 
cholesterol helps the body to function more efficently. Eating more fruit instead of 
cake and candy, drnking water instead of soda pop, not eating eggs, cheese, or but- 
ter will help the body to generate more energy to expend into sporting activities. 

As 1 see it, eating a healthy diet similar to the one described above is almost im- 
possible here on campus. The food that the cafeteria and the Campus Kitchen serve 
could be healthier. But since not everyone is health minded, most people would com- 
plain if the cafeteria and C.K, stopped serving cheese, eggs, and fried foods. Eating 
healthy is a personal choice one most people don't make until it is almost too late. 
Hean disease is America's number one killer and if Americans today would eat Uke 
they should, this killer would become almost extinct. 

Ealing and exercising right creates a healthy longer living body, a body that can 
function respectfully in demanding sports, one that can have fun without feeling tired 
all the time. Next time you are eadng, think about what you are eating and what 
you could do to eat better so you can live a longer more fulfilled life.

Black History Week 

Dear Editor: 

I am writing in reference to an article in the February 12 issue 
of the Southern Accent, "Black History Week at Sr-iithem." 
As a student here at Southern College I have a number of 
friends that are black. I realize what Ihe school is trying to ac- 
complish with this week, but for the following reasons I 
disagree with it. 

First of all, the theme of this black history week has been 
"working together." I do not think a lot of working together 
has really been accomplished this week. For the most part the 
blacks here on campus have planned and presented this whole 
week. 1 think it would have been neat, since the theme was 
working together, if the blacks and whites had both planned 
and presented the programs for this week, each helping and 
supporting the other. 

Another aspect of this topic that I disagree with is that, 1 
feel by having this week puts and emphasis on the particular 
group, therefore segregating them even more so. If we want 
to be fare and equal about things, since we had black history 
week, why not have hispanic history week, or white history 
week, or even one that includes everyone, like American history 

Sliced and Diced? 

Dear Editor, 

Just a note with respect to my article "Pre-marital Sex" which 
was published in the Southern Accent Feb. 5, 1987. 

This article was solicited for publication by the editor. At that 
time it was made known to the editor and his assistant that this 
was a sensitive subject and to do justice to it a lengthy article 
would be necessary. This was agreed upon and I was informed 
that It was "no problem". 

I was more than surprised, therefore, when 1 read a badly 
mutilated form of my article in the paper. The anicle, as it ap- 
peared, cotitains a dozen or more omissions of text ranging from 
smgle words, sentences, and paragraphs to an entire section of 
some SIX paragraphs which formed the core of the introduction 
I his section m which I dealt with two definitions of pre-marital 
sex was entirely gutted. Add to this the numerous "tyoos" 
throughout and the result is one messy article. 

Many of the omissions appear to be accidental. It is hard to

Hardest of aU to understand are the 

Probably, (he thing that I disagree with most, and the one - 
that bothers me the most is the misuse of talent. In the article, 
it tells how various balck people have been performing for the 
chapels, worships, and church services. Before black history 
week we really had not heard a lot of these people perform. 
Why should we save them to use only during black history 
week? I beheve a lot of talent is being wasted, and that we 
should use their talent all through through the year, not just 
during black history week. 

Even though I disagree with this black history week in some 
ways, I have really enjoyed all the programs and messages this 
week has given me (especiaUy the sabbath service). This week 
has definitely made me stop and think about a lot of things

again presumably accidental. In column four the word "not" 
■is insened into a sentence. This, of course, completely reverses 
the meaning of what I wrote. 

I am not particularly penurbed that the article was edited or 
shortened. But I am saddened by the shoddy and haphazard way 
in which it was done. I am loath to think that our readers would 
consider this as representative of S.C. 

When an article is mutilated in this way the editor usually ex- 
lends a courtesy to the writer. That is, he returns the article to 
him, either for a decent burial or for revisior

I actually said, that a copy of the original article is available 
from the Department of Religion.

[America's New Discovery, Sandi Patti, to Perform 

pandi Patti: To sing March 7 at the Roundhouse. 

Sandi Patti, Billboard magazine's 1986 
Inspirational Artist of the Year, will per- 
form at Chattanooga's UTC Arena on 
Saturday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. The con- 
cert is one of 22 to be performed this 
spring concluding her 18 month "Let 
There Be Praise" Tour. 

During December Sandi's towering 
soprano voice was heard by millions of 
people through her second appearance 
with Johnny Carson on "The Tonight 
Show" and through a starring role on 
NBC's "Christmas in Washington" with 
President and Mrs. Reagan. 

On February 24 she will perform and 
song "Face to Faith" on the Grammy 
Awards show in Los Angeles. Producers 
for the Grammy Awards show chose the 
song from her recently RIAA certified 
Gold album " Morning Like This", 
which album has been nominated for a 
Grammy Award in the category Best 
Gospel Performance-Female Album. 
Additionally, she was nominated in the 
Grammy category of Best Gospel Perfor- 
mance Duo or Group for the song "They 
Say" sung with Denise Williams. 

The mantle in Patti's family room 
already resembles a trophy case. The 
30-year-oId singer has won two Grammy 
Awards and numerous Grammy Nomina- 
tions, 13 Gospel Music Dove Awards, 

and three Gold Records. Her current 
recording. "Morning Like This", is 
predicted to reach platinum status within 
the year. 

Patti is delightfully refreshing in her 
approach to people. She just as easily 
chuckled with Johnny Carson when she 
explained appearing on his show as op- 
posed to visiting the vice president 
"because Johnny asked first." 

That openness and vulnerability draws 
concert-goers to Patti like a magnet. On 
stage and off, she exudes charm. Her 
winsome smile and quick wit cement the 
instant rapport she enjoys with her au- 
dience, however, it's her classically train- 
ed, three octave voice which leaves her 
audience in awe. 

Having traveled for five years, Patti 
moves with great ease from pop-oriented 
tunes to ballads to jazz to traditional 
hymns to classical. 

First Call will be featured in the con- 
cert as back-up vocalists while Dick Tun- 
ney will assist with keyboards. Tunney 
traveled as music director for The Im- 
perials prior to joining Patti's tour. 

The Chattanooga area Chick-fil-A 
Restaurants are sponsoring this concert. 
The Atlanta-based restaurant chain will 
sponsor other Sandi Patti concerts 
around the country this spring.

"Dedication by Candlelight" 

By Gordon Hyde 

Over the weekend of February 13 and 14, thirteen graduating seniors in 
ReHgion were dedicatecl to the work of ministry and thirty sophomores and 
transfer students were accepted into the ministerial training program in a 
candle-light consecration service conducted in Pierson Chapel of the So-Ju- 
Conian Center, Friday evening, with Elder Robert Spangler, Editor of Ministry 
magazine, as the speaker. 

Religion majors and their families were out in force for the Religion Perspec- 
tives weekend, conducted jointly by the Student Ministerial Association and 
the Christian Women's Enrichment Association, under the repective spon- 
sorships of Dr. Ron Springelt and Mrs. K. R. Davis. The Friday night dedica- 
tion service was organized by a faculty committee, under the chairmanship 
of Dr. Douglas Bennett, with Drs. Jerry Giadson and Ron Springett associated 

Following Elder Spangler's presentation on the unique world and the church 
that awaits the prospective Seventh-day Adventist minister today, there was 
a roll-call of the candidates for ministry, presented by Dr. Bennett; and a 
roll-call of the graduating seniors, presented by Dr. Gordon Hyde, Chair- 
man of the Division of Religion. 

With the lights of the chapel dimmed, the seniors were called to the rostrum 
individually to recieive a candle which they each lighted from one held by 
Eider Robert Spangler, one of the asociate directors of the Ministerial Associa- 
tion of the General Conference~a man who has encircled the world repeatedly 
in the last 25 years in the interests of the growing ministry of the Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. 

The wives of the four married graduates accompanied their husbands to 
the rostrum, where they received both a greeting and white flowers from Mrs. 
Gordon Hyde. The white flowers were seen as symbols of purity of life and 
as tributes to the heavy contribution which ministerial wives are making now 
during the time of training and will also make when their husbands actually

So Close But Yet So Far 

By Brett Hadley and David 

Those of us who remember last 
year's ill-fated game between the 
men's teams of Southern College 
and Oakwood were less than excited 
at the prospect of playing them 
again. After losing by over thirty 
points the idea of re-hving that 
nightmare was looked upon with 
about as much favor as a lobotomy. 
But hope was in the air, sparked 
by the enthusiasm of Coach Steve 
Jaecks. With a fire that burned in the 
team from Coach Jaeck's desire to 
prove to Oakwood that S.C. basket- 
ball was strangly competitive, the 
S.C. team began the game by taking 
the jump ball and putting the first 
two points on the board. They were 
able to build a small lead but soon 
lost it to Oakwood's advantage of 
speed. But Jaecks had another plan 
besides playing speed ball with 
Oakwood and his slower paced game 

Where did you get this thing? From aboxofCrackerjacks.'!?" 
plan brought our boys back into a 
leading position that they maintain- 
ed most of the first half. 

Southern commanded the boards 
on both ends coming up with most 
of the re-bounds. It was in the clos- 
ing seconds of the first half that the 
S.C. team lost theh momentum. 
Oakwood caphalized on this oppor- 
tunity and drove through one slam 
dunk with a following outside fade 
away to give themselves a three point 
lead as the last seconds ticked off en-

Southern 33.

Things get blamed on the administration, the management, the students, the 
lack of funds, etc. The list goes on. In any job situation there are problems 
that arise in the system no matter how tightly it's run. Some business systems 
have more bugs than others. The Campus Kitchen is one of these. 

As a long-time employee of the C.K., I feel that maybe I can shed some 
further light on the situation, and possibly expel some deep rooted myths. 
I started working at the C.K. in January 1985. Those seemed to be the good 
ole' days. The workers all got along, the place seemed a Ultle cleaner, a little 
more efficient, and a little more popular than it is now. Between then and 
now, I've had two summer jobs at Burger King, so I've been somewhat ex- 
posed to the real world of fast food. 

Brent Van Arsdell, in his article last week, cai 
his points. The administration doesn't get down t 

side C.K. circles they are referred to as the "people on the hill". Mr. Evans 
comes down more than most people think, he just keeps a low profile so that 
employees don't put on a special show for him. 

The management problem is a httle more complex. It has been turned in- 
side out trying to find a solution. The C.K. has one head manager, Mrs. Mary 
Wisener {note correct spelling), she is usually at the C.K. from around 7 a.m. 
to 2 or 3 p.m. Mrs. Peggy WiUiams is the afternoon supervisor. She comes 
in at 1 p.m. and closes the store. The C.K. has two Kitchen supervisors, Mrs. 
Dorothy Chapman in the morning, and Mrs. Nadeline Robert in the after- 
noon. Linda Mavrokos is also a morning supervisor, but she is on the cash 
register, and can't leave that station. The shifts are split into two main time 
slots, morning shift and afternoon shift. In most cases, Mary takes care of 
the hiring of the morning crew and Peggy does the afternoon, when it comes 
around to discipline or termination, the final descision is up to Mary. 

If someone on the afternoon shift is a bad worker, Peggy does as much 
as she can about the problem, but then she has to turn it over to Mary. If 
this person works a shift after Mary goes home, then she isn't really exposed 
to the person's work habits, and can't discipline properly. This leads to a person 
getting away with things that they shouldn't be, and this rubs off onto other 
workers who eventually turn into non-workers. 

The solution: Take the afternoon supervisor's word for it, and fu-e the per- 
son; or have a store manager that stays later in the afternoon, and hire another 
supervisor for the morning shift, that can walk the floors. The manager is 
too busy in the office to supervise all the time. 

At the beginning of each semester, the C.K. staff attends a combination 
staff and orientation meeting. The rules are laid down, and everyone's re- 
quired to attend. The students know that they are not supposed to do 
homework, read magazines, eat, stand around, etc., when they are on the 
clock. Knowledge is not the problem, the problem is follow-up. With plenty 
of office work to do, the supervisor is not always around to tell the students 
to wash the tables or carry the food out. This is reaUy no excuse, considering 
that we are in a college preparing to go out into the real world, we should 
have the responsibility to an employer to do the job without being led through 
every step. 

Solution: a little organization. At Burger King each station has a li t 
responsibilities, and they have to be done before the employee can che k °^ 
This has been tried at the C.K. but doesn't seem to have any back bone VT' 
a rush comes in, an order taker can't clean the tables, and by the time a ru h 
is over, it's time to go to class. A compromise has to be made somewher? 

Another solution: Student supervisors. Some students have worked at th 
C.K. long enough to know the place inside and out. At Burger King th 
employees were called production leaders. They didn't get paid much'm ^^^ 
but they had reasonable authority. As it is now, students resent it when anothe' 
student suggests that he/she carry out or wash tables, even though it needs 
to be done, and the one suggesting can't leave their station. 

Brent concluded his quest by saying that things should change, and I hear- 
tily agree with him. after, all, I work under these conditions. But most of us 
already know the problems, we just need solutions. Do we force Dr. Sahly 
to eat at the C.K. three times a day? Do we hog-tie Mr. Evans to a chair in 
the dining room? do we burn Mary Wisener at the stake? Do we. .well I 
guess I can't get much more facetious than that. 

At Burger King, when you are hired you h ave to sit through hours of Burger 

"This little article doesn't cover half of it, 
but it gives a little insight. I just want Brent's 1 
article to be taken with a grain of salt (or | 
two Alke-Seltzers)." 

King University training tapes. "Now repeat the six steps in making a whop- 
per, then fill in the answers in your workbook." Every sandwich is made the | 
same. Mayo, lettuce, two tomatoes on the top, bun and meat patty, cheese, 
four pickles, four rings of ketchup, three rings of onions on the bottom. Each I 
customer only gets two packets of ketchup unless they request more, and under ' 
no circumstance do you offer ketchup-keep overhead costs as low as possible. 

The only problem with Burger King (other than the food) is that you can't 
get an omelette with a choice of four cheeses, or a peach-van. cookie-cinnamon | 
shake. You can't get a waffle with half strawberries and whipped crean 
the other half peanut butter and applesauce. You can't come in after closing I 
and get sodas or chips (This isn't really encouraged at the C.K. either, but | 
we have soft hearts in dire needs). 

This Uttle article doesn't cover half of it. but it gives a little insight. I just | 
want Brent's article to be taken with a grain of salt (or two Alke-Selizers). 
These problems in the system have been around ever since the fall of man, 
and writing the obvious in the >lccen/ won't change things. Writing your con- 
gressman might. . .but I doubt it.

The Bi^ Picture 

By Mark Bond 

Amongst the myriads of musicians on the Christian market today, Michael 
W. Smith stands alone. His new album, "The Big Picture," bears witness 
to this fact. 

Its message is aimed at the problems that the Christian youth of today must 
face. He has taken issues such as teen-age suicide, pre-marital sex, peer 
pressure, and feelings of inferiority, and packaged them in a wrapper that 
will appeal to the kids of today. 

"The Big Picture" stands for the larger view of your life that God has plann- 
ed for you. It is represented in the song, "Pursuit of the Dream." 
"...As you see the big picture, 
Things begin to fall into place, so 
Don't bend the rules. 
Never forget your roots 
As you head for something new. 
Ride thru the shades of desire 

Letting the light be seen, 

And He'll steer the heart in the 

Pursuit of the dream." 

The album has an upbeat sound that is easy to get hooked on. Michael's 

I mastery of synthesized keyboards shines through in the production of the 

lalbum. It was produced jointly by Michael Smith and John Pottaker. who 

|helped Phil Collins to get the driving sound of "Sesudio." 

If your used to th earlier two albums of Michael's; "Project," and "2," 
'ou are in for a surprise, he doesn't include any of the praise songs which 
[he is famous for. The "Friends are Friends Forever," sound looks like it has 
leen abandoned for the time being. 
Michael W. Smith is, by ail means, a musical genius. In the past four years, 
I he has written over three-hundred songs, of which, nearly two-hundred have 
I been published. He has written for the likes of Amy Grant, Sandi Patti, Bill 

-February 19, 1987/SOUTHERN ACCENT/Il 

Gaither, The Imperials, Whiteheart, Truth, and many others. His music has 
touched the hearts of millions. He received a grammy for the best male gospel 
soloist in 1985. 

The Big Picture is an album of encouragement that will be played over and 
over until it is worn-out. It is on the top of my "favorite" list.

Southern Spring Breakers Do It On The Beaches Of Roaian 

Go Ye Therefore Even Unto Honduras 

2/SOLITHERN ACCENT/March 19,1987- 


All That Glitters Is Not Gold 

I'm sure most of us have casually glanced through some of the more popular 
magazines and noticed all the colorful eye-catching ads for alcohol and cigaret- 
tes. Most of these ads ponray an exotic Hfe style only for those persons who 
smoke a certain brand of cigarette or drink a particular alcoholic beverage. 
These ads usually picture young healthy people having a great time at the beach, 
skiing, or playing outdoors. It would seem, according to these ads, that the 
only way to have fun or be athletic is to smoke or drink. After all, as one 
cigarette ad says, "Discover where today's smokers are heading." The pic- 
ture for this ad portrays two couples landing on a desened beach. What this 
ad doesn't show is where these people are actually heading for smoking. 
Another two faced ad reads, "Friends are worth Smirnoff." This particular 
ad shows three friends at a bar talking and laughing. Who knows, one of 
these "Smirnoff friends" could drive home that night and cause an accident. 
It doesn'f seem logical to give your friends something that could cause them 
to kill themselves or others. 

The Salem cigarette ads state that "You've got what it takes. Share the 
Spirit, Share the refreshment." Are there some hidden meanings in these in- 
nocent sayings? What could they mean by having what it takes? I guess we 
all have mouths to insert cigarettes into if we so desire, and yes, we have lungs 
to inhale the refreshing smoke. "Share a new adventure," or "Where a man 
belongs," are the interesting lines seen on many Camel Filter cigarette adds. 
The picture of the man with the curly blonde hair who is either backpacking 
in the wilderness or canoeing down the Colorado river is probably familiar 
to many of us. I've often wondered what he does with his cigarette butts while 
he is in the back country. Surely he saves them in a bag so he can place them 
in a proper receptical or burn them in his fire at night. If not, 1 don't think 
he belongs in the forests or on the rivers littering them with the unused por- 
tion of his cigarette. 

The cigarette and alcohol companies have done an impressive job fooling 
people into partaking of their products. They use flashy ads with gorgeous 
gals and handsome guys to impress the minds of young people. These ads 
don't tell the complete story though. The ads only show exciting activities 
that most young people participate in. What the ads don't show is the broken 
famihes, the hurt parents of the child that has been killed by a drunk driver, 
the heart disease, lung cancer, emphazema, an.l all the rest of the side effects 
of using alcohol and cigarettes. So the next time you happen to glance through 
a magazine and see one of these hypocritical ads, think of the other side of 
the picture, the not so pretty side. And remember, what you see is not all 
of what you get.

Southern Accent To Be Terminated 

Every year the Student Association recieves a budget 
appropriation from the college. It is the SA's respon- 
sibility to reallocate that budget appropriation to all 
the departments of the SA. When the money allocated 
to any SA department is finished, that department 
ceases to function unless the SA Senate approves fur- 
ther funding. 

At this point, the budget allocation for the Southern 
Accent has expired. The SA senate, in cooperation with 
the SA treasurer, have researched ail available sources. 

The Hackman Hills 

On Monday night, the SA Senate voted I 
the publication of the Southern Accent. One final edi- 
tion, scheduled to be released at the end of the year 
on April 23, will be allowed. 

It is the sincere hope of this committee that you have 
enjoyed the Southern Accent this year.

Recently I have observed the mounds of dirt in 
front of Hackman Hall. 1 have often pondered the 
purpose of these earth pimples. So during spring 
break, having nothing better to do, I decided to ex- 
plore these slopes. ! donned my skis and headed for 
the moguls. After a few passes I realized there was 
a vital ingredient missing: snow. So, confused and 
defeated, I returned to my room. Upon arriving I 
sat down to think of other possible functions of these 
mounds of dirt. Finally it dawned on me. I grabb- 
ed my camera and dashed for the eighth wonder of 
the world. Scanning these hills for the entire day, 
my hopes were crushed when I realized there was 
no sculpture of Dr. Sahly hidden in these works of 
art. I went to bed depressed. But never fear, for in 
the night I had a dream. In my dream I saw three 
btUe mounds eat up the four big mounds, but I soon 
realized that his dream was not original. I awoke 

with a fresh theory. Quickly I made my way to 
Hackman Hall, remembering a rumor of a confiden- 
tal experiment in the chemistry department. I con- 
sumed a sample of this organic dirt and awaited the 
effects. Nothing, not even improved hair growth on 
my chest. That evening while watching Godzilla on 
T.V., I got another theory. But I quickly realized 
that a giant mole invading Collegedale was a little 
far fetched. Although my quest for understanding 
the purpose of the Hackman Hills ended in defeat, 
I now look at them as pieces of art and spend my 
evenings endlessly gazing at their beauty. I would 
like to thank the grounds department for making 
these sacred Indian mounds part of my college

Keyboard Convention 
Comes To CoUegedale 

By Lynford Morton 
Next week, from March 25 through 27 
Southern College will host the 
Southeastern Historical Keyboard Socie- 
ty's seventh annual conclave. The 
keyboard society is an organization 
dedicated to the promotion and study of 
keyboard instruments. Meetings for the 
three day convention will be made up of 
organ and harpsichord concerts, 
workshops and scholarly papers, as well 

Each year, the Southeastern Historical 
Keyboard Society holds their conference 
on the campus of a different college or 
university within the seven stale region. 
The 1987 version of the convention was 
drawn to Southern College by the two 
magnificent Brombaugh organs on our 
campus; a four manual 70 stop instru- 
ment in the CoUegedale church, and a 
two manual 30 stop instrument in Acker- 
man Auditiorium. 

This year, the two featured artists will 
be Guy Bovet and Edward Parmentier. 
Also included in the scheduled events are 

harpsichord performances and a builders 
clinic. Four sessions have been planned 
for the three days of the conclave. The 
first session will take place on Wednes- 
day the 25th after an opening concert by 
Bradley Brookshire on the harpsicord. 
The concert will take place in Ackerman 
Auditorium at 2:00 p.m. 

The first session begins with the presen- 
tation of a paper by Michael O'Brien and 
then continues with a lecture and perfor- 
mance by CoUegedales's own Judy Class. 
Another performance will also be given 
by James Nicholson before a break to 
view the musical exhibits. The other three 
sessions will follow in similar fashion 
with recitals by Edward Parmentier on 
the harpsicord. Jane Johnson will also be 
featured on the same instrument as well 
as contributions from John Brook. An- 
dre Lush, Rob Parkins and Guy Bovet,

Rewarding Religions Retreat 
At Cohutta Springs 

By Joe Osborne 

All of you Religion majors plan ahead 
for the soon approaching spring retreat 
being held on March 27 and 28, at Cohut- 
ta Springs Camp. Don't forget your cam- 
ping gear! And as always be prepared for 
a fantastic weekend retreat! 

Dr. Gerarard P. Damsteegt will be the 
guest speaker for vespers service. His ser- 
mon "Quest for Truth" covers subjects 
such as university intellectualism and 
revelationT — 

The following morning sabbath school 
lesson will be held by none other than his 
wife. Mrs. Laurel Damsteegt, telling her 
story of "The Two Little Missionaries 
Standing in a Row." 

The Sabbath worship sermon is entitl- 
ed "Spotlight on 'The Remnant', is it 
Christ Centered: Doctrine Centered?" 
Dr. Damsteegt \ -nravel his theory on 
ihe subject. Later that evening, he will 
journey into the Old Testament times 
with his sermon entitled, "Old Testament 
Sanctuary Key lo the non-Christian 

Included in these weekend activities is 
the S.M.A., holding discussions at 2:00 
p.m. on Saturday. The subject will be 
that of "current" issues in Adventisi 


CWEA will also be holding their discus- 
sion at 2:00 p.m. Mrs. Damsteegt will 
speak on, "Your thing and His thing." 

Plan to attend lunch, supper, and 
recreations in between activities. 

Interviewing a notable theology stu- 
dent on campus who has attended several 
Religion Division retreats such as this 
one, I asked Mike Fulbright of his full 
opinion of such retreats. "Being in an 
area such as Cohutta Springs is very 
rewarding for such activities. Religion 
and nature are intermingled adding to the 
atmosphere a greater presence of God. " 

Mike went on to say that, "thespeaker 
is very much qualified for such a retreat, 
his sermons are very rewarding." 

Jerry Gladson gave his opinion of the 
spring retreat saying that "It would be 
very rewarding for anyone to attend, and 
I would have to suggest it." 

You still have about 2 weeks so be 
looking for transportation arrangements. 
If you have any questions concerning the 
retreat, the religion department will be 
more than happy to give the information 
you need. Don't forget to plan ahead. 
Hope to see you there! 

Southern Union Music Festival Brings Academies 

By Beth Mills 

Ir, case you have been wondering 

why there has been a lot of academy kids 

on campus lately, it is because the 

I Southern Union Music Festival is upon 

us. Every year, a select group from each 

academy in the Southern Union meets to 

I have a good time practicing their musical 

I skills with each other. Every third year, 

I Southern College is lucky enough to have 

I them on our c;impus. In the interim 

years, different academies are picked to 

I host this annual event. 

The groups aTived Wednesday after- 
noon, March 20. Registration was con- 
ducted between 6-00 p.m. and 7-00 p m 

that evening. Following registration, the 
rehearsals began. In addition to Wednes- 
day evening's practice, they plan to 
rehearse all day Thursday, and most of 
Friday. Practices will mainly take place 
in the music building, with the exception 
of the Festival Band, who will meet in the 
P.E. center. On Friday, most of the other 
groups will also meet in the P.E. center 
since the majority of the performances 
will take place there. 

Four programs will be presented by (he 
Festival groups. The Festival " 
Group, led out by Bruce Ashton i 
Judy Glass, will bring us the vespers ■ 

vice Friday night, March 2 1 . The Festival 
Choir and String Groups, conducted by 
Marvin Robertson and Orlo Gilbert 
respectively, will provide the music Sab- 
bath morning, March 22. Incidently, Dr. 
Robertson, chairman of the Music 
Department, is the overall coordinator of 
the Festival, and deserves a hand /or pull- 
ing it off. Sabbath evening, a sacred con- 
cert will be presented by the combined 
groups of Choir, Strings, and Band 
(directed by Pat Silver). Later that even- 
ing, a secular concert will be brought to 
us. once again, by the combined groups 
of Choir, Strings, and Band. 

Approximately fourteen schools are 
represented from around the Union- 
Students have been placed in the dorms 
(as you know if you have one in your 
room) and have been given meal tickets 
for food (as you probably have surmised 
from the long lines at the cafe and C.K.). 

These academy students represent the 

future musical talent of Southern Col- 
lege. So, let's do a 
feel welcome during their short s 
our campus.

Come To The Roatan With Me 

By Brent Van Arsdell 

There are some formsofinsanity that are onso appealing. They call 
from across the seas with a song that makes us do things that are not 
"normal." So for spring break '87, I gave up my sanity, picked up 
my passport, and headed for the tropical paradise island of Roatan in 

It happened like this. I got this notion m my head that I should do 
something different for a change than the usual rather self serving spring 
break party, or week of relaxing. What better place to do something 
for someone else than on the island of Roatan. Roatan is considered 
one of the best diving spots in the world. And it was rumored that we 
would get to dive on a coral reef. We could definately get a chance 
to do a lot of snorkelmg. This would be the perfect trip, service to others 
combined with a great place to relax when the work is over. 

Honduras is in the tropics, and if that brings up images of white sand- 
dy beaches, and coconut palms waving in the breeze, you are right. 
Honduras borders Nicaragua, and if that brings up unages of a U.S. 
government funded war, "to protect democracy," you are also right. 
Fortunately, we were close to beaches and coconuts, not Contras. If 
you think that an island might be the ideal place to start a romance,

The BARGE wasn't too bad if you had the ability to ignore the signals I 
you got from your five senses. It was like staying in the sleaziest hotel | 
you can imagine. There were roaches bigger than 1 have evei 
Talge Hall. The windows were broken or non existent, and I w( 
about the bathroom. But we slept like rocks, and we'd sleep e 
ter before the week was over. 

Sunday the construction began in earnest. There were no blueprints I 
for this construction project. We were simply trying to build the addi-" 
tion to the school from the mind of one of the construction "experts" 
that had come with another school group. 

Two HondaraD children: "All right, just hurry up get it over with."

The project moved along fairly smoothly with only a few people col- 
lapsing from the heat, or getting severely sunburned. A few people had y (i 
minor injuries from stepping on nails, or other hazards of the construc- 
tion site. 

Sunday and Monday we snorkeled a coral reef in the afternoon. It 
was a great experience. Tuesday it began to rain, but in the afternoon ■ 
a group again, went snorkling. Wednesday the rain got serious, and 
the pictures that Alan Hyde saw on his satellite TV showed that it might 
last all week. It did. Work progressed between showers until Friday. 
Sabbath afternoon the clouds cleared off and we had a beautiful day. 

I didn't have an "exciting and fun" vacation in Honduras, but I still 
recommend it to anyone. There is simply something very worthwhile || 
in doing something good for someone who can't possibly repay you. 
It is an incredibly good thing for a college student to realize that there 
is more to the third world than his 19 inch color TV screen shows. Some 
of the people from our group were sad to leave and wanted to stay. 
Most of us were glad to head home, but all of us were glad we had gone. 

In the final analysis, it is a lot more important to share of yourself 
than just to give mission offerings. A poet once said, ' 'It's not in what 
you give, but what you share, for the gift without the giver is bare." 
Sixteen Southern College students got "missionary tans" in Honduras, 
and sixteen S.C. students were glad they went.

Collegedale Contraband 

By Jack Daniels , , _, 

Yeah, thats right, I drink... and I'm not ashamed to say so. There 
are those who like to lip the glass of alcohol but are ashamed or em- 
barassed to admit it. But then there are people, like myself and my 
friends, who are not hypocritical about our personal habits. When so- 
meone asks me about drinking I'm willing, to talk openly about the 
subject. I don't go around secretly hiding my personal lifestyle so no 
one will know what goes on behind closed doors, and all of Happy 
Valley can pretend that Southern College is free of drugs and alcohol. 
I honestly think that people around Collegedale, both faculty and 
residents, have made drinking, in their own minds, such a satanic evil 
that they are too afraid to admit that it actually happens here in Hap- 
py Valley. Then, they mask their fear in the form of apathy. Well, it 
does happen and it is not the satanic evil you may think it is. Just because 
a person drinks does not mean he is an alcoholic or a drunk. To quote 
a respected Adventist authority, "all things in moderation." This is 
my approach to drinking and my approach to life. The reasons I drink 
are, I believe, legitimate and not too different from the reasons people 
choose to participate in other supposedly "cleaner" activities. 

First of all. It's fun. When a few my friends and I get together to 
relax, get away from the socied pressures of hfe and drink a few beers, 
it's fim. With good friends, good food, and a little music it's like the 
commercial says, "It doesn't get any better than this." Admit it, with 
teachers throwing tests at you left and right, a school bill that resembles 
the national debt, and the social hfe of a cactus plant, the pressures 
of life are enough to drive anyone crazy! Drinking allows me to escape, 
for a little while, the constant agony of life. This is not necessarily bad 
because we all Uke to escape in different ways.. .drinking just happens 
to be mine. 

Secondly, there are times that I like to be a little more uninhibited \ 
than I usually am. All of us would sometimes like to break out of o 
inhabitions. Picture this: Your're sitting in a restaurant, all alone at I 
a table for four, sipping on a Coke (caffiene-free of course). Across 
the room, through the smoke filled air, your eyes catch the radiance 
of a beautiful, young woman who is also sitting by herself. Your deepest | 
desire is to nonchalantly stroll over and say something clever like, 
"Don't I know you from a previous life?" But, due to your own in^ 
habitions, you will probably continue drinking your Coke alone in your I 
corner watching her from a distance, while she walks out on the arm 
of some Tarzan. If, however, you had a little rum mixed with your | 
Coke, you could have a little help in surmounting your inhabitions and 
enter into a whole new dimension of a social life; You too can be a 
Tarzan. Drinking can occasionally help you overcome some of the short- 
comings of your personality and allow you to be more open. It unleashes 
your alter-ego and lets you do things that, usually, you could not do. 

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not tryng to justify drinking and I 
don't think that it's necessarily right for everybody. I do believe, 
however, that people who do drink should not be shunned by our sub- i 
cultural Adventist society. Just because my habit happens to be drink- 
ing instead of eating junk food does that mean I should become a social , 

Everybody has their own Httle intemperate activities that they occa- 
sionally enjoy indulging in for reasons that are not too different from 
my own. Occasionally it's O.K. to indulge in self a little. But, like 
said, ail things in moderation. Yeah, I drink, and I'm not ashamed to 
say so.

ind Justice For All. . . 

By Jannette Bryson 

I The telephone rang. An officer from probate court was calling from 
^troit, Michigan. She asked, "What punishment would you like given 

lan who killed your husband?" 
iMy immediate response was, "Aren't there laws?" 
■ She replied, "The judge just wants to be sure society is happy." 

I I mumbled something about wanting to check on the options and 
Ireed to call her back in a few days. 

|Happy? She said the judge only wanted society to be happy. Were 
nly statistics, members of a faceless society? Were there no laws? 
' thoughts went back to the long drive from Columbus, Ohio to 
Itroit, Michigan.

|ck right tire circled out, forcing us to the side of the freeway. 

age, Edward, came to my mind, along with the question about punish- 
ment. Having been in school work for over twenty years, a kaleidoscope 
of experiences with students and the use of alcohol passed through my 
mind: the young girl in Africa who drank rubbing alcohol, the student 
with tear-filled eyes teUing me how he killed his best friend because 
he chose to drink and drive, and and the student who came to the house 
in the middle of the night with several friends, shouting, "I am Daniel. 
My friends and I are going to take over the campus!" Along with the 
faces and experiences, the subsequent discipline committees. 

Discipline means more than punishment; it involves training, 
guidance, modeling, and instruction through the various means of com- 
munication available on school campuses. Proverbs 13:24 (KJV) states, 
"He that spareth the rod, hateth his son, but he that loveth him 
chasteneth him." Dr. Ross Campbell, M.D., a psychiatrist in Chat- 
tanooga and author of a book on relationships, points out that the rod 
referred to in the bible is the shepherd's rod. The shepherds used the 
rod primarily to guide the sheep, to gendy steer them away from danger, 
and to block them from going in the wrong direction and then gently

Ihanged a look that said, "I love you. It's going to be all right."

J our family. 

I When asked to write an article on drinking from a dean's perspec-

nudge them toward the right direction. 

Adventist campuses like the Southern College campus provide the 
structure for students to learn of the effects of drinking alcohol and 
it is painful to have to dismiss a student for using or possessing alcohol, 
but it is to get help from trained agencies that a student is asked to 
leave. The horrible reality of blindness from drinking illegal alcohol, 
alcoholism, and lost lives are in the mind of a dean when confronted 
with drinking. 

The "rod" may seem difficult to a new student on an Adventist cam- 
pus and doubly rough if it means leaving school, but like the punish- 
ment for the man who killed my husband... The telephone rang. The 
probation officer was ready for my answer. 

"Edward's license should be on probation for two years, he should 
be exposed to alcohol education, and be assigned free labor in a com- 
munity program to pay back his debt to society." My hope for Ed- 
ward was for him to develop self-discipline, to that of the consequences 
before drinking and driving, to help him live a healthier life.

Alcohol, Drugs and the College Student 


By TedHuskins. C.A.B.L. Director 
Upon reading the title of this ar- 
ticle, you probably think you 
know what I'm going to be writing 
about. You think it's going to be 
the same ole' thing you've heard 
in temperance programs since you 
were seven: Boring facts such as 
alcohol causes cirrhosis of the 
liver, blood clots, pancreatitis, 
heart failure, kidney failure, and 
brain damage on the very first 
drink! Or you may expect me to 
relate all the horror stories found 
in the news papers concerning the 
death of celebrities due to 
substance abuse such as Elvis 
Presley, Don Rodgers, Howard 
Hughes, John Belushi, and the 
tragic death of Lenny Bias at the 
hands of cocaine. However, as I 
mentioned before, 

you've already heard all of this so 
I will endeavor to approach this 
problem from a new angle that 
you may not have thought about. 
Most of us are at the age when 
we are starting to get our own cars 
and homes, are married, planning 
marriage, or at least have though 
about it. We aren't mommy and 
daddy's little boy or girl anymore, 
and with this realization comes a 
whole host of responsibilities and 
decisions to be made. Will we 
become one of the 150 million 
Americans who drink? Will we 
become a drug abuser as so many 
other Americans are, buying over 
100 billion dollars worth of illegal 
drugs each year, making the illegal 
drug business bigger than General 
Motors and thus at the top of the 
Fortune 500? If you have already 
made the choice to use drugs or 
drink or are thinking about it there 
are some things you should know 
that the local temperance man pro- 
bably won't tell you, the alcohol 
industry won't tell you, and the 
pusher definately won't relate to 

cliche, "your only going to hurt 
yourself. ' ' In the case of substance 
abuse you are going to hurt 
yourself, but that's the least of 
your worries. Because more often 
than not it's the innocent party 
who suffers injustly and in the 
worst way from your weakness. 

Let's take your car, the first of 
the new responsibilities I mention- 
ed. There are over 30,000 alcohol 
related deaths on America's 
highways each year, a half million 
injuries due to drunk drivers, and 
several hundred thousand arrests. 
A very steep price for having "one 
for the road, ' ' or for having an un- 
natural "good time" at a party. 
Now let's look at the marriage you 
someday hope to have. Alcohol in- 
creases the chances of miscarriage 
ten-fold. Marijuana causes a large 
incidence of abnormal sperm cells, 
and if the woman smokes mari- 
juana the DNA of the egg cell can 
be damaged. Therefore, your un- 
born child can be severly deform- 
ed because of your marijuana 

It is tremendously unfair, (and 
that's an understatement), for a 
child, possibly your child if you 
smoke marijuana, to have to go 
through hfe mentally retarded and 
deformed because of your desire 
to have a "Uttle harmless fun." 

Now lets look at the home you 
hope to have. A major cause of 
divorce and the major cause of 
violence in the home is the use of 
drugs and alcohol. Hitting your 
spouse, the person you're sup- 
posedly in love with, beating your 
children, and fmancial ruin are all 
a reaUty and should be considered 
before you put that needle in your 
vein, before you take that drink, 
or snort the coke. 

But go ahead, after all you will 
only be hurting yourself.

Floor Hockey: Skill or Kill? 

By Dave Nollelson 
The editor and I were looking 

for a good story on floor hockey 

for the sports section. We had 

heard that it was actually a 

multidimensional sport that re- 
quired talent, not just brute force 

as it was rumored. So armed with j':' 

pen and paper (and a promise of ; 

$20 from Brett for this article) we ' 

headed for the gymnasium. ; 

We stepped inside the door and 
what should we find but the object ; 
of our search: a floor hockey ; 
player in the person of Allen "Side 
of Beef" Valenzuala. We asked 
him why he thought floor hockey 
is a skill sport, and a true mans 
sport. He grinned an insane grin 
and screamed, "Cuz, ME GET 
STICK." And with that he started 
slamming his head against the 
wall. Brett looked at Allen, then 
me, then his watch, and exclaim- 
ed, "Oh, hey, I almost forgot. My 
roomate is going to have his gold 
fish fixed and I have to be there 
for moral support. Later!" Then •''™ 'iuenergardt: ' 
he ran out the door. Thanks Brett! 

, shoot thai thing. 

always thought the term "face- 
off" was used because the op- 
ponents started by facing-off. 
How wrong I was. At 5:31 the 
door flew open, a ref threw a puck 
towards the center of the gym and 
yelled, "Back in 15 minutes!" 
Then all the players proceeded to 
try to tear an opponents face off. 
After 10 minutes of utter chaos 
and considerable action, I observ- 
ed that the puck had not moved. 
The only people that seemed to 
have noticed it were Qualley and 
Jaecks, both of whom were eyeing 
it hungerily. As if on cue, both 

men exploded from their positions I 
and charged the puck yelling, "My | 
Cookie! My Cookie!" 1 just J 
couldn't bear to watch, so I made \ 
a hasty exit. 

Back in the comparitive I

that floor hockey requires the I

It's Not Where You Watch It, But What You Watch 

Many years ago, theaters were really noi the most pleasant things to attend. Most 
people smoked and drank and didn't have the highest moral standards. In theaters 
today, smoking and drinking are not allowed and many families are now attending 
theaters for an evening of entertainment. In fact, the cinema has at least one advan- 
tage over watching videos at home. Ai home, most people have a 14-24 inch screen 
television, while in a movie theater there is a giant screen where characters assume 
bigger than life form. But there are some disadvantages to seeing a movie at a theater. 
The movies cost more and the popcorn never tastes like moms. Actually, there really 
are very few differences between todays movie theater and (he home theater. 

The main issue to be addressed today should be what a person watches and not 
where. Almost every movie ever shown in the theaters is sooner or later available 
on video cassette. These movies, along with hundreds more, are available at the local 
video store waiting to be rented for the night. Most of these movies are rated P.G. 
(parental guidance suggested forages under 12 or 13) or R (restricted to persons 17 
or over.) Many people don't even read what the movie is about before they i 
It could be a murder mystery or a horror flick and they won't know until they i 
it into their video machine and start watching it. And then, i 
they might sit there and watch it not wanting to waste S3.00. When choosing a 
video to watch think of who will be seeing it. An important point to consider is, if 
watching a certain movie won't make you a better person don't watch it. Some peo- 
ple argue that they filter out the bad parts of the movie and only digest the good 
clean parts. Do these same people go lo the garbage dump and pick the good food 
out and eal it for breakfast every morning? The tainted scenes in a movie are always 
there and your mind doesn't shift into neutral when il recognizes a bad word or when 
it sees violence. 

But videos are not the only source of theater type movies. HBO (Home Box Of- 
fice) and many other cable networks show movies of all types and ratings around 
the clock making il even easier for a child to switch the T. V. on and watch whatever 
he wants. Even without HBO or videos, most movies shown on televis 
really apppropriate for Christians to view. 

Many Adventists today are too caught up wii

unaware of what is happening to them by watchii 

to watch. Most of us do own video recorders and many more own televisions W 
really can't do away with televisions and video machines, but we can decide what

Southern College Gym Team: Will present home show Saturday night. 

Gymnastics Team 
Home Show This 
Saturday Night 

By Beth Mills 

This Saturday evening, April 5, at 8:00 
p.m. in the Physical Education Center, 
the internationally famous Southern Col- 
lege Gymnastics Team will be perform- 
ing their annual home show. One other 
show will be presented Sunday night, 
April 5, for the academy students visiting 
heie during College Days. 

The twenty-seven members of the gym- 
nastics team will be performing fourteen 
team routines. Five or six of these will be 
presented by the eriiire team. The other 
routines will be doubles, triples, and 
quads. Coach Evans did not go into any 
detail when describing these routines (I 
guess it is suppo.«d to be a surprise). Kirk 
Rodgers will bring us the only singles 
routine. He will be perforr.img a routine 
on the blocks. 

The Southern College gymnastics team 
has travelled all over the Southeast 
United States this year. After they have 
finished the two home shows, they will 
have performed seventeen times. 

The team has started something new 
this year. This is the first year that the 
team has put on shows in local high 
schools. Performances were given at 
schools as part of an anti-drug team call- 
ed "Students Staying Straight." 

Ted Evans, who coaches the Southern 
College Gymnastics Team says, "I think 
this year's show is going to be an exciting 
show, because this is a really talented 
team we've got. Come early, seats go 

Maximum capacity is expected. Admis-

the Chattanooga Symphony and addi- 
tional community musicians, the 
Southern College Symphony will swell to 
over 100 players. "Festival Prelude for

the Uve concert for later broadcast. 

In addition to directing the worid- 

phony under the direction of Orlo 
Gilbert. Judy Glass will be playing the 
Anton Heiller Memorial Organ. This 
number, never before performed in the 
Chattanooga area, was written for the 
dedication of the new Vienna Concert 
House in 1913 and requires a large 

The "Organ Concerto No. 2," by 
Joseph Rheinberger, a work yet to be 
recorded in the United States, will also be 
performed by the orchestra and organ. 
This is believed to be its premier perfor- 

Orlo Gilbert: Will conduct the 
symphony for performance.

dividuals who can serve as role models 
for our students. Another is lo provide 
mind-slrelching for the community 
around us."

otic food from other continents. 

This year, oriental foods were served with the theme of the banquet 
centering around the song, "Love In Any Language." The evening con- 
sisted of a delicately performed Korean Fan dance, an exciting Microne- 
sian dance, demonstrations of Caribbean limbo, a candle-light dance

in wearing traditional clothes for the occasion. 

Approximately 300 students, faculty, and community residents fill- 
ed the Southern College cafeteria to better understand and experience 
the different cultures that exist around the world. 

The evening concluded with the introduction of outgoing and incom-

finale, everyone participated in singing the meaningful chorus of the 
song, "Love In Any Language."

Century 21 Theater 


> T.oq, 


B^i Gordon Bielz 
The man looked very calm and assured as he welcomed us to Century 
21 Theater. It was a very high tech looking place and we all quieted 
down as he began to speak. 

"Welcome to this example of a new generation of theaters. What 
we have developed here is the ultimate theater. This state of the art 
theater is the result of a quantum leap in technology. We have used 
advances in the fields of micro-electric transmission, computer graphic 
generation, mapping of the brain and etc. 

Some of you may be old enough to remember the theaters back in 
the latter part of the twentieth century where they used what they call- 
M the 'silver screen' to project pictures on. For us today, that technology 

very similar to what was done during the stone-age, drawing pictures 

1 the walls of caves. 

All theaters of that type have been archaic for many years now One 
such theater has been preserved at the Smithsonian and you may have 
been there to see what it was like back then. At that time production 
of movies was very expensive because a producer of movies had to use 
actual people, animals, and props to act out the scenes that he had in 
mind. Of course today that is all made obsolete by the Interactive 
Tcchmgraphic Mind Imager with which you are already acquainted. 

What we have here in Century 21 Theater is the most advanced of 
he ITMIs, for it has been integrated with the most powerful of the 
lew generation of computers which allows for greater depth of interac- 
jvejiewing. But enough of the hype. If everyone would take their seats 

With those words each of us moved to seats in the auditorium, the 

bv I cnun Tf ;'x^ '"'' '""' '="' ""^ ^^P"^"^" f""" °'her seats 
by a couple of feet. That was so none of us who became deeply involv- 
ed m the movie could umntentionally hurt the person we were sitting 
next to^ Each seat had a special head rest and attached to the head rest 
'o hat7hrr.»H^' ,"'.°^",*= head. The ushers assisted each person 
o that the head-set fit perfectly. We were all given ear plugs that total-

diHn', w,, .."u """*'"'• '^^"^ """' ^°""^ ''=''»■ because one 
didn t want to be secured to the seal in such a fashion, but it 

was explained to them that without such a secure attachment they might I 
hurt themselves or others. 

Once each person had their head-set on, we again heard the voice 
of our guide. Well we didn't exactly hear his voice we just knew what 
he was communicating to us. For now his voice came to us not through 
the vibration of sound waves on our ears but through the electrical 
magnetic impulses of the ITMl now attached to our heads. 

"You are now prepared for a theater experience that you will never I 
forget and it will change your life. We encourage you to identify with 
one of the characters in the plot. The first five minutes will give >_. 
a rundown on the characters and you may choose one of them. After 
choosing your character simply say, 'I choose' and then name the | 


And so, as the experience' 
continued, I saved the city 
from the evil plans of the 
vilUan who held the city| 
hostage to threats of a poison- 
ed water supply, and in the 
process I killed ten 
people and. . . 

The movie was the basic murder mystery and so I chose to be the j 
hero. After the selection of the charact;r, the movie, well not a movie, 
but the experience began. 

It was incredible. I was not seeing a picture out there in front of me, 
but I was there on the street corner in San Francisco. It was like a dream, 
but I was awake. The alley was dark beside me and it was cold. The j 
wind blew trash down the street. I sensed some menacing thing in the | 
alley and ran down the street to get away from it. Breaking for a 
ment from the image, I realized the need for the seat belts. I was being I 
chased and turning, 1 faced an evil looking man. I lunged at him and 
found that the knife in my hand carved a deep hole in his heart and 
I felt warm sticky blood all over my hand. Where did that knife come 
from? How would I explain all of this? Who am I? And 1 turned and | 
ran up the street, heart pounding. And so as the experience continued, 
I saved the city from the evil plans of the villain who held the city hostage | 
to threats of a poisoned water supply, and in the process 1 killed ten 
people and slept with five women. 

1 found later that fifteen people had to leave the theater because their 
hearts were not able to take the stress. A number of fights between 
heroes and villains broke out as people left the theater but they «eK 
broken up rapidly by the police. 

As 1 left the theater, I walked along the street and I passed a dark 
alley, the wind was blowing and I felt a menacing presence...

"How To Survive College 


By Brent Van Arsdell 
Life is too serious to be taken shortly, so you can't let your studies 
interfere with your college education. Of course I'm a graduating senior 
who has been here since before you academy seniors were in junior high, 
so I'm sure you won't take offense. 

There are really only three parts to your college education. In order 
of importance they are, social life, food, and academics (which are also 
called classes and studies). Now your parents know that the most im- 
^ portant partof your stay at Southern College is your sociallife. If you 
graduate from here without being engaged or married, your dad will 
probably say, "What's wrong with Adventist education?" So guys and 
gals, here's how to get together. I am an expert on this subject because 
I haven't done it. 

First, scrap your traditional ideas about honesty. It's not that you 
should lie to your dates, you just shouldn't admit that you are serious- 
ly evaluating "Susie" as a possible permanent companion at the mor- 
ning Postum table. Next, admit that you aren't perfect, but remember 
that there probably isn't any one else out there who is perfect either. 
If there is someone, when you find her she will already be married to 
an absolute, no good, low down, wimp of a guy who can play " Mary 
had a Little Lamb" on a kazoo. If you do happen to find and marry 
the perfect woman, at least you know how people will describe you. 
The perfect woman doesn't exist, so guys, be realistic about what's 
available in Thatcher. 

Ladies, you should realize that there are more women in Thatcher 
than there are guys in Talge, so we have a little problem of demand 
exceeding supply. If you believe in luck, that's great, but a hard work- 
ing fairy godmother would come in handy. 

The second major crisis in your college experience will be the food. 
There are three traditional places to eat at S.C: the Cafeteria, KR's 
Place, and the Campus Kitchen which is usually called the CK. Now, 
man cannot hve by Cafe, KR's, and CK alone, so you need to learn 
how to survive when they are closed or for some reason they make you 
nauseated. Moving a stove into your room isn't allowed because of fire 
codes, but you can fix many basic dishes with tools you probably have 
around your room. 

One of my favorites is the grill cheese sandwich made with an iron. 
Here's the recipe: 

Cover a large textbook with aluminum foil and put it on your sink 
for the base. A Survey of Civ. book (you hated the class anyway) is 
usually about the right size. Place the book on your sink for use as 
the grill. Place the cold bread and cheese on the grill to suit your taste. 

If you are using your own iron, cover it with aluminum foil to make I 
sure that you don't get cheese on any of your dress shirts. If you are I 
using your roommate's iron, this step is not necessary. Preheat your I 
iron for three minutes to the "cotton" setting. Make sure the steam | 
is off before you begin to "grill" your sandwich. Apply the iron t 
the sandwich until the cheese is melted. Then turn the sandwich over I 
and grill the other side. Serves one. 

Those who are interested in more advanced survival should buy r_ 
book entitled, "How to Survive College-lOI Recipes for a Popcornl 
Popper." Send check or money order for $7.95 to "Survive College,' 
P.O. Box 1573, Collegedale TN., 37315. Please allow four to six wee'k| 
for delivery. 

Last and least, a college student should be concerned about studyl 
ing. Unless you are insanely bright, the only way to get A's in college! 
is to overstudy. Study every spare minute you have, study i 
cafeteria, study in the CK, study at KR's place. If you study hard I 
enough, you won't have a social life, and if you study while you are| 
eating, you won't notice the food either. 

The best way to get good grades is simply to be insanely bright. The I 
way to do this is to choose very intelligent parents. If you're i

day and discuss what you are 
going to be doing in twenty 
years with an old person whol 
doesn't care what you are go-l 
ing to be doing in twenty] 

a situation to do tliis, you might liave to study a little. This may come | 
as a shock to some of you, but study is something that is done with I 
books in a room by yourself, not with a date in a dark car. You should I 
attempt to absorb the knowledge from the books into your brain. A I 
common technique is to read the books ahhough there are other I 
methods. A popular alternative is to put the book under your pillow I 
and attempt to absorb it directly. This results in very sore necks, and | 
has hmited benefit in the classroom. 

College freshmen should be familiar with the system of academic ad- 
visement. This is where you go on registration day, or before, and I 
discuss what you are going to be doing in twenty years with an old per- 1 
son who doesn't care what you are going to be doing in twenty years. I 
These are generally good people, but they cannot be trusted to plan I 
your career for you . Some of them will blindly sign you up for a semester | 
of calculus, chemistry, and cooking classes if you let them. Remember, 
you have to live with whatever you take, your advisor doesn't. 

Enjoy your stay at Southern College like I have. If you follow my I 
example, college can be the best six years of your life. Find someone I 
to belong to, Uke I haven't. Don't write stories in the Accent about | 
the quality of the CK food, Uke I did, and try to make good grades 
so you can go to graduate school and be a student forever!

lonzo Goes To College Days 

So, you're an academy senior who is coming to CoUegedale to check 
■out the vast opportunities of higher education here at Southern Col- 
||ege. . . right. 

By the time you start reading this article you will have already been 

■greeted, with much fan-fare, by the official college days Welcome 

Iwagon. This would be made up of not only those people who were 

■dressed up as Southern Gents and Belles, but also the innocent-looking 

[older set who resemble sweet grandmothers and grandfathers. These 

people are administrators (A-D-M-I-N-I-S-T-R-A-T-O-R-S). They will 

i you up with pamphlets containing material on all major fields of 

Itudy from "Thermo-nucleic Chemistry" to "Creative Shoe Tying." 

duality, these people don't know all there is to know about the 

kalities of life for the college student. I, however, am a typical college 

tudent who has your best interests at heart. I am here to guide you 

. brighter and better understanding of the differences between 

tademy life and collegiate life. Stick with me and you'll be O.K. 

I The differences between academy and college are many, including 

e level of academic opportunity and educational excellence. But let's 

trasts between academy food and the collegiate cuisine. 

I know what it is Uke in academy cafeterias; a person stands in line 
and, with all of his friends, attempts to discern what kind of vegetarian 
loaf is hidden underneath six inches of cheese {put there so no one can 
tell, until it's too late, what it is they are eating). All the vegetables 
are the same color-yellow~the dessert is left over from last year, and 
the bread can be used as either food or as shingles for the roof of your 

College is different. Here at Southern, you have the choice of three 
fine eating establishments to suit your own particular "palatory" needs. 
If a good, hearty, multi-dimensional meal is desired, try the main 
cafeteria on campus. If you don't want to eat a lot, go to the C.K.; 
they are always out of everything. However, if all that is needed is just 
a light snack, maybe you should visit K.R.'s Place in the Student Center. 
But look for posted hours: Usually it is open only every third month 
on the night of a full moon. 

Last, but probably foremost in the academy mind, are the differences 
concerning social endeavors in college. Let's just take a look at the ad- 

Ideal with what really matters-classes, food, and social < 
|of which can be enjoyed separately or in desirable combinations. 
Probably the first thing that worries the academy mind is how much 
nore demanding the academics of college are. Lets face it, in academy 
|he level of academics is about equal to the "train-your-puppy" pro- 
Jgram at the local pet obedience school. Students are, however, com- 
■pelled to at least show up in the classroom by the "go to class or be

College is different. Here, to get by academically, you must actually

After the academic apprehensions have been diffused, the next pro- 
pable question in the academy senior's mind is, "How different is the 
Jood service at college?" Rest assured there are major culinary con- 

vantages of academy social life. . . O.K., now let's look at how dif- 
ferent it is in college. Guys, a whole new dimension of social oppor- 
tunity lies before you. No more endlessly diaUng number after number 
trying to find a date for Saturday night-they call you! That's right, 
all you have to do is relax by the phone with a Joker (if you don't know 
what a Joker is, just ask any collegiate female sociaUte) and wait for 
the offers to pour in. Girls, if there is one thing a collegiate woman 
should have it's initiative." Bold"," straightforward", and "daring" 
are all adjectives that describe the type of woman which collegiate men 
are looking for. When you get to college, do not sit alone in your room 
wishing longfuUy for a knight in shining armor to come and take you 
away-call him up! College is a place to let your fingers do the walking. 
Well, I hope that I have answered at least some of the questions that 
academy seniors have about the differences between academy and col- 
legiate life. I am sure that there are many other questions about dif- 
ferences that need to be addressed, but I'll leave that up to the sweet- 
looking grandmothers and grandfathers. Enjoy your visit here at 
Southern, and hopefully we'll see you here next year.

Swallowing The Truth About "Jack Daniels" 

By Shelly Acevedo . „ ^, . j 

Nobody likes a loser, whether financially or socially. The other day 

I read an article by a guy who sounds like a real loser, his name is "Jack 

Daniels." In the Accent's "Collector's Edition," I read his unabashed 

confession that he drank. 

I consider "Jack" a loser because he needs the courage of a couple 
of drinks to feel comfortable with himself and confident enough to ap- 
proach a girl or to ease out a week long build up of stress. 
Now we have all been there. We have all felt insecure and shy, 

need to admit that, "Yes folks, people here at SC have been knownl 
to drink." I can't equate that with condoning drinking. A few drinksC 
here and there don't compare with a candy bar between meals and the! 
occasional Coke. The effects of alcohol are irreversible and although! 
not everybody becomes an "alky," there can be milder forms ofl 

If you are dependent on alcohol to mellow out from an 18 hour c 
load plus 20 hours at McKee's, what will you do when the pressure! 

"But perhaps "Jack Daniels" is not as stupid as he sounds! 
but is presentmg a clever way of showing us that there are| 
no good reasons for drinking." 

timorous of even approaching a table in the cafe to ask somebody if 
we can sit with them, but part of growing up is facing up to those fears, 
not actually losing them. Because after we lose our fear of approaching 
that person, there will be the fear of making that presentation, asking 
the boss for a raise, or of starting your own business. 

There will always be something that puts us on the line. What is im- 
portant is that we acknowledge that fear and learn to deal with it. By 

an diminish the power it has over us.

are no good reasons for drinking (although, if he is real, he is as stupid 
as he sounds). Because if a guy needs a couple of drinks under his belt 
to relax or to ask a girl out, I don't think it is worth anybody's time 
to he around him.

Kanpai of Tokyo: A Dining Experience 

Bv Mark A. Bond 

CHATTANOOGA - You won't have to go all the way to Japan to 
enjoy an authentic Japanese cuisine. Kanpai of Tokyo specializes in 
Japanese food prepared right at your table by Japanese chefs making 
it a unique alternative to the routine "Saturday evening date." 

The thing about eating at Kanpai that is different than your ordinary 
restuarant is that you are seated with up to ten people around you. Once 
everyone has ordered, the Japanese chef comes to your "table" and 
prepares your food right before your eyes. He doesn't merely cook the 
meal; he puts on a show. Knives twirl, and spatulas fly, he cuts and 
dices the food on the grill. He juggles the salt and pepper shakers to 
season the vegetables, and balances the eggs on his spatula before fry- 
ing them. His motions flow as he effortlessly manipulates the foods 
he prepares. 

Kanpai is considered a Japanese "steak" house, which would tend 
to discourage many of the vegetarians associated with Southern Col- 
lege. However this should not necessarily be the case. Kanpai offers 
a vegetarian meal which consists of several entrees served as courses. 
The price of the vegetarian meal is $4.75. 

The meal begins with tea, the traditional oriental drink. Then you 
are presented a bowl of broth, which is very weak and has mushrooms 
and onions in it. As you finish the soup, they bring you a house salad 
which IS covered with a tasty Japanese mustard dressing. 

This is when the chef comes. He prepares zucchini and onions steamed 
on the grill. Next, he makes a large portion of fried rice for everyone. 
Following the fried rice, comes your main entree. If you order 
veg«ar,an, you are served a large helping of Japanese fried mushrooms 

Because of the fact that each table seats between eight to ten people 
you usually wind-up sharing your table with strangers. Shrimp is in- 

ollh'' r' r "' ""''"'" °f '"^ ™™=" -"^^'^ "hey will kindly 
omit the shrimp from your meal if you ask.) 

After the main dishes have all been prepared, he fixes a heap of fried 
bean sprouts. These may take a little getting used-to when you firs' | 
try them. They aren't prepared hke I've ever had bean sprouts before, 
however they are quite good. This concludes the meal part of your dni- 
ner. By this time you should be well on your way to being "stuffed. 

To finish off the meal, they bring a bowl of vanilla ice-cream « | 
orange sherbert. It is a perfect desert after all the food they bring y<i"j 

Like I mentioned before, you are served in groups. I would sugges^ 
a double, triple, or even a quadruple date if you're planning to go 
Kanpai of Tokyo. It would be a lot of fun sharing the experience wi 
a group of friends.

The Last Hurrah 

Here it is, 6:30 on a Tuesday night in i\yQ Accent office, and the grand 
pooh-bah of procrastination is just now sitting down to write his final 
editorial. My production staff have abandoned their jobs for snacks 
at K.R.'s, my editorial staff have left me to go in search of Krispy Kreme 
doughnuts, and I fear my typesetters are lost in a world of deep slumber. 
All of this on deadline night. . . for some reason, the word "typical" 

There are many things that could be said about the Accent in my 
final editorial. Indeed, there have been many "firsts" and "never before 
done" for the paper this year. But. to be totally honest, the only thing 
1 can thmk about is, have we been successful this year? 

I'm not real sure what success is. I am, however, understanding more 
and more of what it is not. I use to have these intangible notions of 
what I thought success was all about. I could picture "Mr. Success" 
and his hfestyle of money, recognition, and things like that. This year 
as editor has channged my outlook a little. 

I hope that success is not measured by recognition. I will not forget 
the afternoon I was in the cafeteria eating lunch with friends when a 
girl who was somewhat a stranger asked me if I knew who the editor 
of the paper was. She thought the editor was some crazy Spanish girl 
named after an avocado. . . I just smiled and said I wasn't sure. I do 
not believe success is measured by how many people know your name. 
If it was, your success in anything would be dependent on other peo- 
ple. And people, for the most part, are not very dependable. 

I don't think that money has a lot to do with success ehher. If it 
did, only rich people would be successful. There are not very many rich 
people at Southern although I do believe there are a lot of successful

Captian E.O. Gmndset: "Big bird man retires after 30 y 

Southern College's 
Captain E.G. 
To Retire 

By Brett Hadtey 

Southern College's own "Captain 
E.O" has announced his retirement this 
year. E.O. Grundset, teacher of Biology 
and other various assorted science classes, 
will retire following completion of this 
school year. 

When asked why he decided to retire 
Grundset explained, "I'm retiring 
because of the age factor. Also, in my do- 
ing so, it will financially benefit the 
school," This does not mean, however, 
that our campus will cease to be blessed 
with the increased knowledge of one of 
Southern's favorite teachers. Mr. Grund- 
set went on to explain that next year he 
will still be teaching a full load. Follow- 
ing that, he will begin to teach only one 
class per semester, with Ornithology be- 
ing one of those classes. 

Mr. Grundset came to Southern Mis- 
sionary CoUege in the fall of 1957. His 
first year teaching was for the academy 
science classes only which were, at that 
■, being held in Hackman Hall. Since 
then, he has had thirty years of teaching 
college students all about the natural 

There is a long list of accomplishments 
behind Mr. Grundset's years of teaching 
here. In the sixties and seventies there was 
1 big push for environmental education 
ind visual aids, such as charts, diagrams, 
animals, plants, ect...Mr. Grundset lead 
out in developing these areas for the 
biology department. He helped to in- 




nithology, Herpetology, and 

Ichthyology, to get students back out in- 
to field study. One of his bigger ac- 
complishments was that of the Florida 
field trip that has been enjoyed by Or- 
nithology students for years. 

In addition to his academic contribu- 
tions, Mr.Gnindset has also enhanced the 
social aspects of the college. He was one 

to initiate the annual Christmas tree 
lighting ceremony. "Years ago we used 
to have to cut a tree down, drag it in, and 
set it in place; but it was worth it. Today 
we have a living, growing tree." Also, 
have you ever wondered who plays the 
evening Christmas music all over campus 
a few weeks before Christmas break? 
You guessed it, Mr. Grundset. And we 
all know he has been the everlasting Santa 
Claus for Southern CoLege for the past 
twenty-five years. 

Along with these seasonal ac- 
complishments, Mr. Grundset has also 
helped to plan a series of summer social 
events for all of us students who have 
chosen to pursue higher learning while 
getting a tan. He was the one who in- 
troduced that crazy week in October 
known as Fall Festival. And none of us 
are left to wonder when it is time to ad- 
just our clocks when Mr. Grundset, the 
Ye Old Time Keeper, is there to throw the 
midnight time change parties for us. 

I asked Professor Grundset what his 
fondest memory of Southern was. He 
said, "It was when we finally got it work- 
ed out to get the Ornithology class to 
Florida the first lime and the amazement 
on the faces of the students when they 
saw all the birds we had just been talk- 
ing about in class." 

And what is on the schedule for a 
retired college science professor? How 
about piano lessons? Or bird watching in 
places like Northern Sweden, New 
Zealand, Peru, Australia, the west coast 
of England and the Grand Rio Valley? 
And when Mr. Grundset is at home he 
said, "I'm going to work on my hobbies; 
get my commemorative stamp collection 
in order, and work on my glass insulator 
collection." One thing is for sure, sitting 
still will be the last thing the "Captain 
E.O." will be doing. 

Student Missionaries 

To Be Dedicated 

In Friday Night Service 

By Joey Osborne 

School is almost over and there are 
many students who are lost as to which 
direction they will be headed for tJiis sum- 
mer. But there are also many who do 
know which direction they are headed for 
this May through August. To name only 
a few, did you know that Rodney Grabin- 
ski is going to Japan? Sandy Hougsted 
is going to PohnPei! Andre' Frederick is 
going to Mexico! These are only just a 
few students from Southern who are go- 
ing overseas this summer. Many others 
are going to join Task Force somewhere 
in the U.S. Jennifer Wint, for instance, 
will be aiding some Indians this summer. 
Why are these students doing this? They 

We are honored that these students 
have decided to serve the Lord in this 
way, and we will be holding a collegiate 
mission dedication for them at the Friday 
night vespers service on April 17. 

There will be at least twenty-five 
students who will be dedicated, one of 
them may be your friend, so show up to 
give them your support. 
The Collegiale Club and the Student 

have made it possible for 
each young missionary who will be leav- 
ing this summer to receive a gift Bible {a 
small token of our support) during the 

There will be a candlelighting 
ceremony also. This ceremony represents 
the transformation from the students 
who have returned, to those who are go- 
ing out. A dedication song will be sung 
in remembrance of these students. Doug 
Martin will be the featured speaker for 
the dedication service. Mr. Martin held 
the Week of Prayer here at Southern Col- 
lege a while back and was well accepted. 
He is guaranteed to make the audience 
laugh; he has a humorous, but effective, 
way to get his point across. His ministry 
is well known for reaching out to the

Candlelight Service 
For Nursing Dedication 

By Beth Mills 

"The Role of a Nurse." This was the 
topic of the Spring 1987 Nursing Dedica- 
tion. Saturday evening, April 1 1, at 6:00 
p.m. in the Collegedale Seventh-day 
Adventist Church, twenty-five new nur- 
ing students were dedicated to the career 
of nursing. The students involved in this 
dedication were those students that have 
just begun taking the nursing program 
this semester. However, these students 
are not necessarily members of the 
Freshman class. Some are Sophmores, 
Juniors, or Seniors; some are even mar- 
ried students. 

The service included several special 
musical numbers. "I Asked The Lord." 
was performed by Melinda Sutton, Jean 
Johnson, Randy Clark and Philip Mar- 
tin with Deborah Shavtik accompanying. 
Pearlie Reyes played "Panis Angelicus" 
on the fiute. Along with this, Gordon 
Bietz. pastor of the Collegedale church, 
spoke on being "devoted" in the very im- 
portant role of a nur; 

of the Gardens, the group that places 
Bibles in hotels and hospitals, was pre- 
sent at the dedication. He spoke to the 
) of nursing students about how ihey 

could use the Gideon Bible in the future 
as a part of their nursing ministry. 

Following one other special music 
number, "After Calvary," which was 
performed by Cindy Bonney who sang 
while playing the guitar, a candlelighting 
service was conducted. Katie Lamb, the 
Director of the Nursing Division read off 
the roster of students, who then stepped 
forward and readied their candles. The 
class recited together the Nurse's Pledge. 
All Registered Nurses and oiher nursing 
students present in the audience were in- 
vited to stand and repeat the pledge along 
with the class. 

Finally, to close the service, the hymn 
"Lord Who's Love in Humble Service" 
was sung. The class instructors are 
Dorothy Hooper. Kaihryn Hammond, 
and Lola Scoggins.

Be Or Not To Be A Student Newspaper 

By Brett Hadley 

"The Official Student Newspaper for Southern College of Seventh- 
hay Adventists." You will find that Hne, in bold, black letters, crown- 
ing the masthead on every single issue of the Southern Accent that has 
1 printed this year. It is not there simply to take up space, but to 
e a statement about what kind of paper is being published at 
|;outhern College. The title, "Student Newspaper," carries with it im- 
t stipulations that cannot be taken lightly or mused at by editors 
r administration. That title makes statements about purpose and plan 
If the student newspaper. Purposes that cannot be changed by the in- 
|ividual, personal ideas of anyone, be they paper staff or administration. 
But what does it mean to be a student newspaper? What authority 
les the editor have and how extensive is it? When is it justifiable for 
e administration to intercede and make decisions concerning the con- 
it of the student newspaper? To understand the answers to these ques- 
ins, you have to appreciate the different considerations that must be 
jiken into account by the editor before an issue is ever taken to press. 
First of all, you have to determine what the purpose of the paper 
. Basically, the purpose of any newspaper is to be informative. This 
;ar, the goal of the Southern Accent was to be "muhi-dimensional." 
hat is to say, serve the entire student body by having something in 
■he paper for everyone. To be informative through newstories; thought 
lirovoking in the topics discussed in the "Issues and Answers" section; 
bnd entertaining through pictorals, comics, and feature stories. It is 
Important to serve the student body by having something in the paper 
Ihat everyone can enjoy. Obviously, not every student will appreciate 
Ihe entire contents of the paper, but there should be at least one thing 
the paper that each individual can enjoy. To be so "multi- 
limensiona!" that every student can find something in the paper for 
|hem is the purpose of the Southern Accent. 

Along with this, and just as important if not more, is that the stu- 
dent newspaper should be the mode for sounding student voice and 
ppinion. The Accent should reflect the thoughts and ideas of the stu- 
t body. This, above all, must be regarded as the most important 
[spect of truly being a student newspaper. Without it, there is no reason 

r the existence of the Southern Accent. 
J The next consideration is: Who are you going to pubhsh all the 
I'multi-dimensionahty" for? Who is your audience? Being a student 
laper, obviously your audience is the students; but is that all? The facul- 
ty and administration are also a part of Southern College and are in- 
cluded in the distribution of the paper. Therefore, as members of the 
f oUege community, their thoughts and desires must also be taken into 
fonsideration as well as those of the students. Facuhy and students 
together comprise the community that the Southern Accent publishes to. 

Last to consider is the impact made on individuals outside the col- 
lege community. Although the paper is not written for principals, 
academy students, pastors, parents, union officials, and alumni, their 
influence, stemming from contact with the Southern Accent, is feh on 
our campus. Be it right or not, people removed from the college use 
the Accent as a measuring tool to evaluate what is happening at Southern 
College and what kind of standards are being tolerated here. Though 
the Accent is not published to be a P.R. tool, it does, inadvertantly, 
become P.R. for the school. This has serious implications on how the 
administration views the content of the paper. Right or wrong, this situa- 
tion is a reality and must be, and has been, dealt with. 

You see, the Accent can give bad impressions to people who are 
removed from the campus and do not have a total picture of what is 
happening at the college. Their reactions to the paper can have a negative 
impact on the school as a whole. This kind of situation must be taken 
into consideraton when publishing the student newspaper. 

So where is the line of censorship to be drawn? When is it justifiable 
for the administration to assume the role of censors? 

The Southern Accent, through all of its functions; to be informative, 
entertaining, thought provoking, and sounding student voice, is here 
and exists for the good of Southern College. It is when more bad than 
good may result from publishing an issue that the content of the paper 
must come under question. The administration and the editorial staff 
must then decide if the contents of the paper is for the good of the 
school or not. 

The editor, then, has these responsibilities: to serve the student's needs 
in the paper as best as he can, to hold the pubUcation of student voice 
and opinion in high regard, to take into account the administration's 
concerns about possible reverberations due to the influence of the paper, 
to pubhsh for the betterment of the school, and to do all this within 
the guidelines of being a true student pubUcation. 

These responsibihties should be left to the editor. It is his electee) posi- 
tion and his duty, to the students and administration, to carry them 
out. It is only when the editor fails to fulfill these responsibihties that 
the administration should step in and make editorial decisions. We, 
as a publication within a private 

institution, do not enjoy all the constitutional rights like other publica- 
tions. Still, though, it is important for the education and growth of 
both the ethtor and newspaper staff, and to promote principal, that 
the responsibility of publishing the student newspaper be left in the 
hands of the students. Then, and only then, can the statement, "The 
Official Student Newspaper of Southern College of Seventh-day Adven- 
tist" have true meaning.

Caddyshack Comes 
To Collegedale 

By Mike Skelton 

There you are at the end of an 
incredibly long grass field. At your 
feet is a small spherical object 
about an inch and a half in 
diameter. In your hand you hold 
a steel rod, not just any steel rod 
but a crooked one at that. One 
with a rubber grip at one end and 
a crooked face at the other. With 
this "club" you are about to begin 
one of the weirdest practices man 
will ever know. Because at the end 
of this incredibly long grass field 
is a hole (a very small hole, about 
5 inches in diameter.) Your task, 
nay your mission, is to put that 
small spherical object into the 
small hole at the other end of the 

Think of the I.Q. it takes for so- 
meone to hit a small ball with a 
crooked stick, and then go after it! 
Yet this sport is played every day 
by millions of people from every 
social level and on every skill level, 
from the lowly Paul Bunyan 
(never leaves the woods) to the 
Sandbaggers (never miss a putt.) 
What makes people do this? Is 
it some form of religion? 
Whatever it is, it prompted several 
people from the Collegedale and 




nual Collegedale Golf Tourna- 
ment. The fact that it was played 
the same time as the PGA's 
Masters Tournament was no coin- 
cidence. COT organizers knew 
that people would be hungry for 
some "real" golf, so they decided 
to compete with the pros for media 

coverage. In case you're wonder- 
ing, the COT did get some na- 
tional news coverage. It seems that 
some poor old lady was knocked 
cold by one of those small 
spherical objects hit by Steve 
Jaecks. Police officials are still 
looking for Mr. Jaecks. So the 
CGT did edge out the Masters in 
media coverage. 

The CGT won out on winner 
recognition also. The winner of the 
Masters, Larry Mize, is a relative 
unknown. But everyone knows the 
team that won the Championship 
Flight, Allan Cooper and Son. 

The Tournament consisted of 
three flights; Championship, First, 
and Second. The names of the 
winners of the other two flights 
were unavailable at this time (I 
think they're still in the rough.) 
There were also prizes for the top 
three finishers in each flight. 

All in all, the organizers of the 
CGT were very pleased with the 
turnout. When asked if the 
tourney would be moved to a dif- 
ferent date so media coverage 
wouldn't be taken from the 
Masters, Ted Evens, Tourney 
Director said, "What's the 

So, keep an eye on the calendar 
next year for the Spring version of 
the Collegedale Golf Tournament, 
and come out and cheer your 
favorite team on to victory or em- 
barrassment which ever comes 
more naturally.

McKnight Wins 
Racquetball Tournament 

William McKnight defeated Allan 
Martin 21-11, 10-21, 12-10 on 
March 29 to win the Southern Col- 
lege raquetball tournament. The 
first game was tied at at 10 when 
McKnight went on an 11-1 streak 
aided largely by his many service 
winners. Martin rebounded in the 
second game, winning 21-10, rely- 
ing on his power game to over- 
come McKnight. A third game to 
1 1 (by 2) was necessary. McKnight 
spent much of the match, which 

waged on for two hours, in the air 
and on the floor retrieving Mar- 
tin's low shots. McKnight served I 
first in game three and, after two J 
changes of serve, found himself | 
ahead 9-0, as he leaned evei 
to his ceiling shots to offset Mar- 
tin's power game. But Martin dug 
in and inched his way back into it 
and took the lead at 10-9. 
McKnight fought off a match I 
point and got three straight points | 
to win the deciding game 12-10.
