Southern Missionary College 
Collegedale, Tennessee 373 1 5 


Volume 2&- Number I 
Wednesday, Sept. 5, 1973 


Enrollment at SMC has reached an all 
time high at 1 S03 students, announced 
Dr. Cyril Futcher, academic dean, at the 
close of registration. The enrollment is 
the highest that it has ever been. The 
gain in students, said Dr. Futcher, was 
represented mainly in the nursing and 
technical programs. Acceptances were up 
in every conference in the Southern 
Union except the Georgia-Cumberland 

Introduced for the first time this year, 
the two year programs feature college 
credit for work in the industrial field. Un- 
like Andrews University, Walla Walla, and . 
Union, courses carry transferrable college 

SMC is also trying a new concept, dev- 
eloped last year, of teaching courses that 
carry college credit on the academy 
campuses. Among the academies are 
Forest Lake, Georgia-Cumberland, 
Madison, and possibly Pisgah. With the 
eruollment of these schools, the number 
of SMC students stands at 1560. The 
purpose of these extention counes is to 
allow high school students to get college 
credit, to make use of their spare time, 
and to provide good public relations for 
the college, since most students who take 
college courses go on to attend SMC. 









McKee Library has become the recipient 
of two valuable coUections of books. 
These collections are only a part of a gjft 
of over 40,000 volumes presented to the 
library by Dr. Vernon Thomas, a Seventh- 
day Adventist physician living in Texas. 

The John W. Fling Jr. collection of 
books on Abraham Lincoln is considered 
one of the outstanding private collections 
of this type. The collection contains both 
books and other Lincoln memorabilia, 
such as portraits, photographs by Brady, . 
and a check bearing the signature of 
President Lincoln. 

The Civil War collection included many 
documents and over 1400 hard-bound 
volumes dealing with this era of American 

According to Charles Davis, librarian, 
"This only happens to a library of our 
size once in a lifetime." 

The Lincoln and Civil War coUections 
will be housed in a special library. The 
remaining volumes of the gift will be 
incorporated into the general library 

Both of the special coUections wiU be 
ready for public use by the spring of 
1974. Much work remains to be done be- 
fore the special library is opened.

Accent Objectives 

The Southern Accent staff has carefiUly analyzed the 
objectives and goals of the paper for this academic year, 
tlie function of this paper, and its role in the coUege and 
community have been given thoughtfiil consideration. 

As we see things, the primary objectives of the Accent is 
to keep its readers informed about what is happening here at 
Southern Missionary College. If we faU to adequately 
disseminate information and to objectively report the news, 
all that has been attempted will have accompUshed virtuaUy 

A secondary objective of this paper is to provide mean- 
ingful commentary on some of the issues relevent to the 
college and the commuiuty. 

Editorial policy will not be arbitrarily decided upon by 
any one member of the staff. An editorial board will meet 
weekly to vrei^ the pros and cons of an issue before we take 
an editorial stand. This board is composed of flie editor, 
ffisociate editor, news editor, copy editor, and faculty 

We do not feel that it is compulsory for the Accent to 
take a stand on eveiy issue diat arises. We will not hesitate, 
however, to express our views as long as we are convinced 
diat our expressing fliera will ultimately construct rather 
than destroy. 

We mvite you, die readers, to voice your opinions through 
this medium. Letters to the editor are encouraged. 

We realize that we are going to make many mistakes, and 
perhaps many more than are our share. But our errors 
diould become fewer and fewer as the year progresses. 

Mrs. Ellen White states, "It is God alone who can give 
success either ta preparing or in circulating our publications." 
(Counsels to Writers and Editors, p. 14) It is no secret that 
the Accent staff is dependent upon God for tiie success of 
this newspaper. 

Beord voted down 

With neariy a two thnds majority, the faculty at their 
recent coDoquium voted down the Faculty Senate proposal 
that beards be allowed on the SMC campus. 

The proposal sent by the Senate to the faculty reads that 
the senators "voted that beards no longer be prohibited on 
campus and that this action be reviewed by the faculty 
assembly at the time of colloquium." 

The minutes also record that the meeting was delayed 
until a quarum (19 senators) was reached. 

Listed among the 13 members absent were two students. 
Since the Student Association does not function during the 
summer, and since the students serving on the Senate are ap- 
pointed by the SA, there were no students available for the 
July 15 Senate meeting. 

The beard issue will inevitably rise again. Study needs 
to be continued in this area, and when the issue is again pre- 
sented, a more carefully outiined proposal is essential. 
This proposal would conceivably contain certain regulations 
and controls, and more time should be spent developing the 
philosophy and rational behind the issue. 

Arrangements should be made to have a better represen- 
tation of the senators whenever a meeting is held. 

Students ako need to be included in the drawing up of 
such plans. The Senate should be structtued so as to include 
studoits even during the summer. 

Whether the faculty were ri^t or wrong in voting down 
the Senate proposal is a judgemental question to be 
answered individually. But may we suggest that when the 
issue of beards rises again, a more in-depth study be given 
the situation.

at retreat 


"Faculty involvement with students" 
was the theme of the recent faculty 
colloquium-retreat. The August 24-26 
retreat was held on the weekend before 

Elder W.F. Hackett, administrative 
vice president of the General Conference, 
was the keynote speaker for the weekend. 
He addressed the faculty Friday night. 
Sabbath for church, and Sunday morning. 

President Frank Knittel spoke to the 
faculty Friday morning on the subject of 
becoming involved on a personal basis witi 
students-academicaily, spiritually, and 

He advised each teacher to set up a 
specific time each day to be available in 
the office for counselling. Counselling, 
he pointed out, should be emphasized 
immediately after grades come out. 

Dr. Knittel continued by urging the 
faculty to attend chapels, college Sabbath 
School, church, and other religious activ- 
ities where the young people are. "Of 
all the people who need a spiritual rechargi 
once a semester," he said in reference to 
Weeks of Prayer, "we as faculty stand at 
the very top." 

Becoming socially involved with stu- 
dents was another area stressed by Dr. 
Knittel. He pointed out that Mrs. Ellen 
White says little concerning speaking to 
students about dress, grooming, and 
other related issues. She says much, how- 
ever, about being with the students, and 
becoming involved with them. 

The faculty were encouraged to min- 
gle more in student social groups and 
become personally acquainted with

Advertising space donated by tiie Southern Accent. 

Ray Hefferlin, professor of physics, 
coordinated a discussion involving 
numerous faculty presentations on the 
various ways to incorporate Seventh-day 
Adventist ethics into the classroom. 
Individual faculty members shared their 
methods of bringing Christianity into 
the subject material they teach. 

Elder Hackett, in his Sabbath morning 
sermon, stated that denominational schools 
have drifted away from God's original 
plan. He expressed optimism, however, 
that the pendulum seems to be swinging 
back to God's original purpose. 

He continued by saying,"If SDA col- 
leges and schools cease to fulfill their 
distinctive and unique role in the worid, 
they will cease to exist. "Our institu- 
tions, our campuses," he said "need to be 
different. When people walk on them, they 
need to know that there is something dif- 
ferent about Seventh-day Adventists." 

Then speaking specifically of SMC, 
Elder Hackett said that Collegedale has 
stood out in the denomination because 
of its strict adherence to conservative 
standards. "You have been a student 
of the 'old school'," he observed. "That 
has been one of your greatest successes. . . 
I appeal to you at Southern Missionary 
College to not let down your standards." 

Sunday morning the faculty discussed 
the Faculty Senate proposal to allow beards 
on the campus. In a secret vote, 61 
faculty voted to prohibit beards. 41 
voted to allow them. 

The colloquium was held at Camp 
Kiwanic as Hidden Valley, just east of

Student Center 
to open Sunday 



The new Student Center will be open 
for use this Sunday, September 9. 

"It will not be completed but will be 
functional and open for student use," 
said Marji Costerisan, interior designer of 
the center. 

The new center will house all of the 
student activities offices. Pastor Cununings 
office, a prayer chapel, snack bar, game 
i-oom, formal and informal lounges, TV 
room and two conference rooms. 
Costerisan has been awarded an assistant- 
ship to the University of Tennessee at 
Knoxville based on her work at the 
Student Center. 

The center has something for everyone 
■'We designed the center to fill the needs 
of the students, to fit their personality 
and to encourage creativity," says Miss 

Vivid, warm colors are throughout the 

building. Potted foUge and blooming 
flowers wai also add to the atmosphere. 
The snack bar will have a supply of 
sandwiches, fruit, and drinks as well as an 
assortment of snacks. 

The TV room will also have on display 
various trophies and awards won by the 
students and organizations on campus. 
To begin with there will not be any 
wall hanging or paintings in the center. 
"The plan is to use the better of the 
paintings, crafts and sculptures done by 
students," reports Miss Costerisan. 

The entire center was designed by 
Miss Marji Costerisan and Mrs. Bettie 
Griffm, both senior interior design stu- 
dents last year, under the direction of 
Miss Ellen Zollinger, instructor of Home

Sept. 5, 1973 The Southern Accent 

The B.S. Nursing department is experi- 
encing several changes this year along with 
rapid growth. 

The B.S. Nursing department is exper- 
iencing several changes this year along 
with rapid growth. 

Mrs. Doris Payne has recently been 
appointed chairman of the department. 
Mrs. Payne served as Associate Chair- 
inan since her arrival to this campus in 
1968, reports Dr. Cyril Futcher, academic 
dean. She heads a team of twenty in- 
structors oh two campuses; ten in College- 
dale and ten in Orlando. 

"B.S. Nursing is not only the largest 
but the fastest growing program on cam- 
pus," says Dr. Arno Kutzner, Registrar. 
"There are 215 students enrolled in the 
four year program." 

Mrs. Payne reports there is an addition 
to the curriculum this year. The hew 
course is called Physical Assesment. 
In recent years the demand for doctors 
far outnumbers the doctors available, 
so nurses have stepped in to fill the void. 
This course will prepare the nurse to give 
thorough and complete physical exam- 
inations, treat chronically ill patients, 
diagnose problems and recommend fur- 
ther care and treatment from a doctor. 

Student nurses will receive much of 
their practical training while working with 
several of the out-patient clinics in this 

Mrs. Payne said she does not feel the 
new.nursing program beginning at UTC 
will affect the nursing program at SMC. 
The only problem will come when UTC 
begins their hospital lab training one 
year from now. "This will mean we will 
have to spread our labs throughout the 
day rather than having just morning labs," 
said Mrs. Payne. The student nurse now 
receives hospital training at Florida 
Hospital and Memorial Hospital along 
with emergency room training at Erianger. 

B.S. Nursing is housed in three mob&e 
homes located between McKee Library and 
Hackmen Hall. The new nursing building 
is still in the planning stages. The plans 
have been sent back to the architect for 
revisions. The original plans exceeded the 
budget by about $100,000.00 reports 
President Frank Knittel, and the plans 
must stay within a $275,000.00 level. 
There is $160,000.00 in the building fund 
now and a probable $50,000.00 can be 
obtained through special nursing grants. 
The remaining funds wUl be soUcited 
of Chattanooga businesses and friends of 
the college. 

The new building will be situated be- 
tween McKee Library and the Tab. No 
date has been set for ground breaking 



Dr. Melvin Campbell is the new 
chairman of SMC's department of chem- 
istry. He replaces Dr. John Christensen 
who had been the chairman for the 
past 18 years. Dr. Christensen will re- 
main on the chemistry staff as a full 
time professor. 

Campbell is not new to the campus. 
He has taught in the department for the 
past five years. During this time he has 
written and used programmed instruction 
extensively in his classes. He innovated 
the open laboratory concept in Survey 
of Chemistry. 

When asked what changes prospective 
chemistry stduents could expect he was 
quick to praise Dr. Christensen for a 
well ordered department. He stated that 
many of the changes were outgrowths 
of Dr. Christensen's ideas. 

Campbell did mention increased use 
of the computer and electronic cal- 
culator in the department. He would 
like to see an introduction to bio- 
chemistry in the general chemistry 
class. He stated that already Dr. Thiel 
is restructuring the nursing chemistry 

Campbell seemed most excited about 
some possible new course for the general 
education students. He suggested such 
course names as Chemistry and Art, 
Chemistry and P. E. and even Chemistry 
and Industrial Arts. He showed a big 
concern for the general education re- 
quirement and how the chemistry 
department could structure more mean- 
ingful courses. 

Student appreciation 
'the main thing' 
in new cafeteria 

SMC's cafeteria services, under the 
direction of Mr. Ron Grange, began serv- 
ing the student populace from its newly 
acquired facilities beneath the new stud- 
ent center last April. Before, the cafe- 
teria was set up in the old tabernacle in 
sort of a make-shift operation and 
affectionately called the "tabeteria by the 
students who had to frequent the facility. 
Paper plates and plasticware were used as 
eating utensils. 

Now, the new cafeteria has the latest 
in cooking devices, has taken on several 
new cooks, offers two entrees at every 
dinner, has a serving area known as a 
"scramble system", which according to 
Mr. Grange is "much more efficient and 
faster", and has suppUed silverware and 
plastic plates as mealtime utensils. 

In regard to the new "scramble 
system", Mr. Grange wants students to 
understand that there are three hot food 
serving decks and that students should 
form three seperate lines to the individual 
serving decks not a long single line. In 
order to increase the speed at which every- 
one is served Mr. Grange wishes that every- 
one would speak distinctly and loud 
enough for the servers to hear the orders 
for the various food items. Having I.D. 
cards readily available for insertion into 

the badge readers, also helps to speed up 
the process. 

The Campus Kitchen is now under the 
direct supervision of Mr. Grange and food 
expense. The C.K. is still basically a short 
order restaurant, however, new items such 
as pizza, Sam's chicken and fish n' chips 
have taken a place on the permanent menu. 
Mr. Grange mentioned that business at the 
C.K. this past summer was twice as much 
compared to the previous summer. 

Mr. Grange expressed a sense of de- 
light when speaking of the facilities in 
which the cafeteria operated. One item 
in particular has proven quite helpful in 
fast efficient service, its a special type of 
vegetable pressure cooker that can pre- 
pare fresh vegetables in a matter of min- 
utes. This item also keeps to a min- 
imum the amount of leftovers. 

"I have a great deal of confidence 
in my cooks and staff," stated Grange, 
"and I feel that we have one of the pret- 
tiest dining areas in this area. Salemen are 
constantly teUing me how beautiful our 
kitchen and dining really is, I just hope the 
students appreciate them too, that's the 
main thing." 

Grange hopes to throw a small party 
every month for those who had birthdays 
in that month. It's just a small way of say- 
ing we're glad you're here," said Grange.

pends, however, upon the amount ot 
interest shown by the girls. 

Everyone is encouraged to participate 
in the intramurals and other sports events 
during this athletic year. The most rni- 
portant goal for this year's recreation^ 
program is to strengthen the minds and 
boiUes of the students and ficulty as they 
participate in good Christian fun.

Sunday evening Southern Missionary 
College's new Student Center was un- 
officially opened. Notices were posted , 
,ind the student body went in mass to see 
what their long awaited center was like. 

The reaction was largely favorable. 
One of the main reasons the students liked 
he center is because it is different, some- 
hing out of the ordinary. It is relaxing 
ind informal, but at the same time it has 
:lassand beauty. 

There were a few unfavorable comments 
One girl said that she didn't like it because 
t looked like an airplance terminal. Ano- 
:her said she liked the cubical foam chairs 
ji the senate room, but was afraid the 
senators would be so relaxed and com- 
fortable that they wouldn't get any- 
thing accomplished. 

Other comments ranged from "I 
love the flowers," and "where is this 
all going to end?" to a major complaint 
■'There aren't any mirrors in the girl's 

Though functional, the new facility 
till has many finishing touches that 
need to be completed. The TV room is 
lacking a tube, the snack shop doesn't 
liave any food , and the game room isn't 
supplied with games. 

The date set for the grand opening is 
Oct. 1. Both the Board of Trustees, and 
the Committee of One Hundred will be 
present for the event, which will be held 
from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. 

According to Mr. Kenneth Speais, 
dean of students, regular hours for the 
Student Center are:

A record 1 525 students are currently 
enrolled at Southern Missionary College, 
with 42 of these on the Orlando campus, 
a record enrollment for that campus also. 

According to Dr. Arno Kutzner, director 
of Admissions and Records, many records 
were set with this year's enroUment. 
Currently enrolled is the largest freshman 
class ever, 530 students. There are 355 
sophomores, 267 juniors and a record 
graduating class of 280 four-year seniors, 
along with 1 14 Associate of Science degree 

Nursing continues to have the largest 
enrollment as far as majors go, with 409 
claiming nursing as their final objective, 
with an almost even split between the 2 
year and 4 year curricula. Then there are 
163 Religion majors, 125 of which are plan- 
ning to become ministers. The fastest grow- 
ng major field is in the newly initiated 
building technology curriculum. 

Of the 1525 students currently en- 
olled, 641 or about 42%, are new stu- 
dents. Many colleges' enrollments are 
dropping, but SMC's has increased. 
According to Dr. Kutzner, there are many 
easons for this increase. One is the in- 
titution of the building technology courses. 
Enrollment in Religion majors is also up. 

Due to various summer youth evangelism 
ictivities, many college students came to 
aiow of Seventh-Day Adventists and of 
iouthern Missionary College. This was 
1 contributing factor to the enrollment 
ncreas5. "We have a growing church," 
.aid Dr. Kutzner, "and if our college 
loesn't grow with it, we'd better find out 

Steve Salsberry, of San Diego, Calif., was the fifteen hundredth student to register at SMC, maik- 
ing the highest enrollment in the hi.story of the college. Congratulating him are (1-r): Dr. Arno 
Kutzner, director of admissions and records; and President Frank Knittel 

'A Man

"A Man Called Peter," the life story 
ijf Peter Marshall, will be shown at 8:30

of losing a child, and his growth as chaplain 
before his sudden death. 

According to Leclare Litchfield, SA

this time for tne tunas trom the.rilm.

Why 1525? 

Ae bScon ofZher education. Perhaps, the panddoquent 
plm?or hi^erftudent enrollment by various faculty mem- 
Shroulout the Southern Union played an important 

"' Four reasons for coming come to -"i-d imme^ately^ 

The fust beins the rural setting upon which SMC has been 
nlaml Many^udents are really anxious to eave theu: urban 
habUais and become part of SMC:s bountiful greeneo- and 
richne^ SMC's rolling lawns give a person a sense of easines^ 
andfelaxation. In addition, the people who leside here perm- 
anently are easy-going and rather pleasant, 

Secoi^dly, the buadings students patronize everyday are 
styfed mSt';tt,.ctively in a modernistic style. The physjce^ 
plant of the campus as seen from a birds-eye view B laid out 
bi a symmetrical Southern Plantation style .. ^. ' 
Thirdly, an item in which most parents delight, is that 
SMC's standards are conservative, more so than any other 
S D A coUege institutions. Grooming and dress codes are 
stringent but, when compared to the immediate surroundmg 
area, SMC's standards are merely conformative. 

Finally, students are drawn to SMC because of Its 
religious sincerety. SMC students need not feel odd when 
expressing their beUef in Jesus Christ in the classroom dorm 
room, or iafeteria. Christ is a way of life and people looked 
upon with sympathy if they have not accepted Christ as 
their Savior. , ,u j * 

There are probably many other reasons as to why students 
chose SMC, but whatever the reason, we hope you enjoy 
your stay. 

1525 too many? 

When does a coUege become too large? When enrollment 
reachel 500,1000,1500,2000? Perhaps never! SMC is in 
danger of becoming too big. It is possible that in the lace 
of 1 SCO plus students that we forget the one thousand 
five hundred individuals who make up this large number. 

There are two groups who can make SMC a "small" 
college no matter what the enrollment happens to be- 
staff and students. Friendliness and helpfulness in the 
classrooms, church, offices, dorms, on the play fields, 
on the walks must be practiced by both. Specifically 
this means smiles, hello's , offices hours, willingness 
to listen, fairness m the gradmg, overiooking the 
objectional traits in each other-in short the extra mile 
of Chrisitan courtesy. There is no reason that SMC 
should not always be a "small" college.

SMC is presently offering college- 
level classes on two academy campuses, 
Madison Academy and Forest Lake 
Academy. The courses taught are 
acceptable at any accredited college. 

liiis program came into being when it 
was noticed that many academy seniors 
were taking only two or three classes to 
finish their high school requirements. By 
adding a coUege class it was felt the 
students would make better use of theii 
time. SMC benefits because many students 
attend the same coUege that gave them 
their credits. 

At Madison Academy, English Comp. 
is taught by Marilee Easter Cothren. Stu- 

I dents from Highland Academy join with 
Madison for the class once a week. Enroll- 
ment is expected to reach 20-24. 

Dear Staff:

Every year, students elect their own 
colleagues to represent them through a 
student structured and run Senate. This 
is within 'Jie tradition of a repubhcan 
government in which the populous is 
represented by those of their choice, in an 
open and free election. The purpose of 
the Senate is vaguely defined in the Consti 
tution of the Student Assxiation to 
". . . establish and revise laws governing 
the working policies of the Student Associ 
ation. . . . ratify appointments of the 
president . . . approve the annual budget 
. . . originate any action . . ." etc. 

Moose Smith, vice president of the 
SA and chairman of the Student Senate, 
was asked what he thought the purpose of 
the Senate was from his point of view. 
"1 was a senator last year," he replied, 
"and so I know what we did. I have a 
few different ideas for this year as far as 
the conduct and procedinc of the Senate 
is concerned. 1 guess it wnuld be more 
honest to say 1 have many different ideas, 
but my personal concept of a student run 
senate hasn't changed. 

"1 think it should be a liaison between 
the faculty and the individual student; it 
should give each student on this campus 
a voice in how his activities, academic, 
social or otherwise, are coordinated while 
he is here; and each Senator should be 
answerable to his constituents and most 
of all represent their sentiments to the 
entire Senate. 1 think this is where we 
have failed in the past. The only ones^^ 
heard were the eloquent or just vocal," 
Smith said. 

Any student who has been enrolled 
on a college campus for nine weeks with 
a cumulative GPA of 2.25 or a current 
GPA of 2.50 is elegible to run for Senator. 
Petitions for those interested will be avail- 
able beginning Sept. 17. These petitions 
must be signed by 20% of those in the 
precinct for which the candidate wishes 
to represent. The geographical precincts 
are as follows: 

1 -Thatcher 100-144 
2-Thatcher 153-198 
3-Thatcher 200-245 
4-Thatcher 253-298 
5-Thatcher 300-348 
6-Thatcher 350-398 
9-Talgehall 23^(9 
■lO-Talge hall K)5-Lobby 
ll-Talgehall 141-182 
12-Talgehall 201-236 
13-Talgehall 238-284 
14-Talgehall 302-336 
I5-Talgehall 338-384 
If a student wanted to represent one of 
the geographical precincts from the dorm, 
he would pick up a petition at the desk in 
:he dorm, attain signatures from 20% of 
the students in that precinct which he 
wished to represent and return the peition 
to Moose or the SA office by noon 
Sept. 21 . A Student need not be a resi- 
dent of the precinct he wishes to represent. 

There are five senatorial seats for 
village students. To be elegible a student 
must reside in the village and present in 
...ting his desire to be a candidate. This 
can be done by obtaining a petition from 
one of the dorms or the SA office and 
returning it by Sept. 21. 

Voting will be Sept. 25 and 26 in 
Lynn Wood Hall. The polls will also 
open the night of the 25th in Talge and 
Thatcher Halls. 

The first Senate meeting is now 
;cheduled for Monday night, Oct. 1. 
Thereafter the meetings will be held twice 

month on Monday nights at 7:30. The 
Senate meetings usually last until 9:00, 
but in Mooses wordsii " . . . if a senator 
is doing Ills job it will take more time than 

hour and a half every two weeks."

Dr. Sines opens 
denistry practice 


Dr. John Sines has arrived with his 
'"amily to begin a dentistry practice in 
Collegedale, bringing with him nine years 
of experience in many parts of the world. 
Missionaries are most often heard about 
__ the Sabbath School missionary report. 
We hear of missionary doctors, nurses, 
md pastors, but it's not too often that we 
hear of a missionary dentist. 

Dr. Sines is just that. He is a graduate 
of Columbia Union College, Washington, 
D. C. In 1 964 he graduated from Howard 
University as a Doctor of Dentistry. 
For three years he had a private practice 
in Maryland and was doing very well when 
a caJ came through for him from the Mid- 
dle Eastern Division to go and help in Ben 
Ghazi, Lybia. A hospital dentist was 
badly needed in the Seventh-day Adven- 
tist hospital there. Realizing the great 
need in that country, Dr. Sines and his 
family left the U.S.A. to serve in Lybia. 
The need for medical attention was 
unending, and although the work was 
hard and tiring, it was also rewarding. 
On Dec. 17, 1969, however. Colonel 
Kadafi took over the country and the 
Seventh-day Adventist hospital was 
nationalized. Dr. Sines and his family 
sadly left Lybia and responded to a call 
for help in Cyprus. 

In 1970 Dr. Sines was transferred to 
Tanzania, East Africa, where he was made 
head of the oral medicine department at 

Sines replied that wherever he had gone m 
the mission field, he had always heard 
good reports of Southern Missionary 
College along with the academy and elem- 
lary school. Since two of his children, John 
and Valarie, are in academy and will soon 
be entering college and his two younger 
daughters are in elementary school, he 
willingly accepted the call to come to 
Collegedale. More important, though, 
was the need of a dentist in the area. 

Dr. Sines will not only serve the College- 
dale area but also the students of SMC- His 
office will be located across from the 
church, opposite Pierson Drive, beginning 

Oct. 1 

Here are a few words of encouragement 
from Dr. Sines for the pre-dental students 
here at college; 

"Dentistry is a great profession. It is 
challenging but also very rewarding. There 
is a great need for dentists in the mission 
field. At the present time only 30 dentists 
are serving abroad and a great many more 
are needed. The Middle Eastern Division 
alone is calling for four dentists. 

"The American Dentistry Association is 
encouraging more men and women to take 
up this profession and the government is 
offering grants and encouraging more 
ichools to offer training. The hours of 
work are good and working conditions are 
We are happy and privileged to have 

the beautiful Kilimanjaro Christian Medical [Dr. Sines and his family in Collegedale, 

Center situated on the slopes of Mt. Kili- 
manjaro. The multi-million dollar hospital 

is run by several Chrisitan denominations 

as a research center and training school for 

the African young men in the district and 

sunounding countries. It was here that 

Dr. Sines flew with the first flying doctor 

service to be started in East Africa. 

I In June of 1 973 a call came through to 

him from the Far Eastern Division to 
espond to the desperate need for a relief 

dentist in Saigon. The hospital in that 
military hospital which was 
left vacant when the Arnerican military 
left the country. The government asked 
the Seventh-day Adven.ists to take over 
the management of the hospital, present- 
ing a great opportunity for further 
witnessing and spreading of the love of 
Jesus. A dentist was needed on the staff, 
and Dr. Sines agreed to come and help out 
for the summer until the permanent den- 
tist from the United States could reach 

Last month Dr. Sines, his wife, and 
children arrived in Collegedale. When 
asked why he chose to come here, Dr.

Everyone was all atwitter! 

Six coeds from Thatcher had been 
chosen by the young men of Talge to be 
representatives to the beauty-personahty 
contest for the ultimate queen of the 
Peach Bowl football game at Atlanta 
on New Year's Day! 

They had been assured that there were 
no Sabbath appointments, no swim-suit 
contests, and of course. New Year's Day fell 
fell on Tuesday. And there was a $500 
scholarship for the winner! 

So the young ladies departed for 
Chicamauga, Ga., for the first elimination 
contest, where representatives from the 
lions Oubs, who were sponsoring the events 
for the blind of the area, met them and 
the other participants. 

As the plan unfolded, the young ladies 
learned that the final elimination contest 
was at a Sabbath noon luncheon rather . 
than a Sabbath night banquet at the 
Marriott Motel in Atlanta. 

One by one, the young coeds 
testified to their beliefs in the Sabbath 
and how they could not participate on 
Sabbath. The judges were disappointed 
and tried to presuade the SMC students 
with such arguments as, "You have to eat 
somewhere on Saturday; it might as well 
be at the Marriott." But the coeds 
could not be moved. 

Disappointed? Not really! There was 
satisfaction over firm resolve and witn«- 
sing over the beauty pageant that wasn't 
for them! 

TTie coeds who were chosen are as 
follows: Janice Marinkovic, Golleen Bock, 
Cindy Parker, Pam Erskine, Cindy McCants, 
and Betty BeauUeu. 






Because of difficulties in obtaining a 
visa. Dr. Winston Craig of Australia will 
not be teaching in the chemistry depart- 

Application was made for a visa to the 
U. S. Immigration authorities in Atlanta. 
The application was denied. SMC carried 
the request to the embassy in Washington 
D. C. Once again the request was denied. 

Senator Howard Baker, R.~Tenn., was 
then asked to authorize the visa. He also 
refused, saying that the United States 
currently has a surplus of jobless scientists 
in this field. 

According to Dr. Melvin Campbell, 
professor of chemistry, SMC has given up 
trying to get Dr. Craig as a teacher. The 
search for another chemistry teacher is 
continuing, although no definite plans 
have been made. 

Dr. Craig received his doctorate in organ- 
ic chemistry in Australia. Since then, he 
has {pent one and half years studying at 
Cornell University and the University of 

The vacancy in the chemistry depart- 
ment was created when Dr. John Christen- 
sen, professor of chemistry, announced his 
retirement last spring. Dr. Christensen has 
continued teaching until another teacher 
can be found.

Slacks in Center? 

Precisely what function does the Student Center provide? 
PriS it is a place for students to relax and socalBe 
Wween d asses o'r after a hard day's work and study , The 
new Center was designed for such purposes of relaxa .on- 
watching TV, playing table (carpet) games, playing 
nong and performing other social activities. 
■^ Miy is it, then, that in the Student Center women are 
not allowed to dress in an attire that is appropriate for 
"he situation, and in harmony with the pnmary function 
of tlie Center? 

The dress code policy requires that women wear 
dresses in the Student Center at ^' «'"'^*v ^""P' °" „,, 
Sunday. This means that during the week, women must 
wear dresses even when participating in any form of re- 
creational activity in the Center. 

In order to play the Ooor games-checkers, chess, pai- 
chesi, dominoes, etc.-participants must sit on the floor. 
Playing in this position is more appropriate in slacks 
than in a dress. 

When the Student Center fust opened, our Accent 
photographer took a picture of students first using then- 
new faculties We would have been embarrassed to have 
printed the picture. It showed two girls wearing dresses, 
the hemlines of which, colloquially speaking, "were closer 
to their navels than to theu- knees." The shortness ot 
the skirts was accentuated bv the furnishings of the Center. 
Tlie ^s would have been more in harmony with Christian 
standards of modesty had they been wearmg slacks rather 
than dresses. 

The Student Affairs Committee recently sent a 
recommendation to the Faculty Senate requesting that 
women be allowed to wear slacks in the Student Center 
on weekdays after 7:00 p.m. 

Our thanks go to the Student Affairs Committee 
for realizing that a problem does exist in this area, and 
for recommending that something be done about it. We 
beseech the Faculty Senate to carefuUy analyze the sit- 
uation, and to take proper action in Ught of the 
difficulties that have arisen from the present situation. 

No Student Voice? 

Important decisions that affect students are now being 
made by various organized bodies that do not contain any 
student representation. For instance, the Student Affairs 
Committee last week discussed the possibilities of offering 
mixed swimming. Dress and grooming policies were also 
discussed by the committee. 

The structure of the Faculty Senate and most of the 
administrative committees provides that a certain quota 
of their memberships be made up of students with full 
voting priviledges. 

Why then is there no student representation? Simply 
because the vacancies on theses committees have not been 
filled by appointments from the SA President. 

According to SA President Leclare Litchfield, all 
appointments must be approved by the SA Senate, and 
the Senate is not even elected until September 25. At 
the earliest, the fust Senate assembly could convene a 
couple of weeks after that, providmg, of course, that no 
election nin-offs are necessary. 

By the time the Senate can get around to approving 
the student appointees, much water will have passed under- 
neath the bridge. 

It is the duty of the SA in the sprmg to appoint these 
student representatives. Last spring the SA was negligent 
m this matter, and now the students suffer. The mistake 
has already been made, though, and all that can be done 
now is to make the best of the situation. 

Perhaps students could be appointed by executive com- 
mand to these positions on strictly a temporary basis, serv' 
ing until the Senate officially ratifies the SA President's 

It is vitally important that the viewpoints of the 
students be blended into the rationale that formulates 
academic and social policies. It is essential that student 
representatives be appointed immediately to serve in the 
places that have been provided for them.

Late this summer SMC was the 
recipient of a gift from Dow Chemical 
Company, consisting of the contents of 
an eight by ten foot trailer filled with 
items of interest to students and faculty. 
Since the company is mainly a chem- 
ical production center, the gift included 
items such as flow valves, pressure 
meters, and other items dealing with 
the production of chemicals. This 
contribution is of special value to the 
Biology, Physics, Industrial Arts, and 
Chemistry departments. 

The Chemistry and Physics depart- 
ments divided among themselves two 
large cardboard barrels full of clamps, 
tlasks, and assorted items useful in con- 
ducting experiments. Also received 
was a device for measuring the flow 
density and mass of a liquid through a 
given area during a specific time. An 
instrument was included which measures 
viscosity and temperature of liquids. 

There were also thermometers, bal- 
ances, refractometers, strain gauges, and 
a chromatograph, an instrument used for 
the separation of complex mixtures by 
percolation through a selectively absorb-

Southern Accent Sept. 19, 1973 



for an 

end to 



Ed. note-Tlie following article vras 
written as a lettw to the Accent by 
John Q. (Moose) Smith, executive 
vice-president of the SA. We are 
puM^hiog the letter as follows in the 
form of an article. 

Elections for the Student Senate are 
less than a week away. The last election 
we had on this campus, fewer than 35% 
of the eligible students voted. When that 
35% came to vote, the ballot actually 
didn't offer much. Six of nine candi- 
dates were running unopposed. Of 
course there were several unusual sit- 
uations arising last year and people be- 
came tired of voting, or so I am told. 
Personally, I wanted to have some 
voice in the way my money was spent, 
and the way my student govertunent was 
run, so 1 voted. 

Why should anyone vote? Why should 
anyone run for office? Someone once 
said if the government is run for the peo- 
ple, then the people should have a voice 
in who is running it. Another has said 
that when people cease to have an input 
to government then government ceases to 
have output for the people. As a student 
1 can buy that. But there is more. We 
students are here to get an education, but 
even more to prepare for the future. I 
for one feel the latter is the main reason 
we are here, for the future is ours. 

Those who are acquainted with me 
probably tire of this line, and I guess it 
has developed as my own philosophy of 
education and perhaps my philosophy of 
life at this age. For 1 am very serious in 
urging my friends-guess what! One of 
these days we're going to wake up and 
find we have to take over, in leading 
the church, in leading the schools, and 
even in leading our country. And you 
know why? Because it is our turn and 
there is nobody left but us. Isn't that 
what we are preparing for? And aren't 
we all very apathetic? 

We exhibit a gross lack of concern, 
my colleagues and I do. Of course this 
isn't a peculiar trait of Sevens-day 
Adventists but more a trait of my 
peculiar generation, coUectively. It 
^so a trait of America in the 1970 s 
This was exhibited in the last presidenual 
elecUon among other things. But why 
should the present college generation be 
more apatheUc than others? I guess part 
of the fault belongs to the Vietnam war. 
It was disiUusioning for those who went 
and for those who stayed. I can remember 
when the big thing was to keep score and 
we all wondered how many more would 
die before this mess was over. Those 
who didn't go could sit around the tube 
and see an instant replay of the days 
acUon with Walter Cronkite and supper. 
And our minds and morals had to be 

The last three presidential elecUons 
were decided partly by assasination. In 
1964 President Kennedy didn't run for 
reelection. He had gotten involved too 
much. In 1968 Hubert Humphrey was 
defeated in the presidential election. 
He would not have run, but Senator 
Robert Kennedy was shot a few months 
earlier. He, also, had gotten involved too 

In 1972 President Nixon won by a 
landslide. This has proved to be unfort- 
unate in certain respects. George Wallace, 
was recuperating from a gunshot wound. 
And when we are brought up in this at- 
mosphere where those who get involved 
get shot, the only alternative is to not 
get involved. 

Also most of us were reached in 
affluence, not wanting a great deal. We 
have not known or have forgotten how it 
feels to be hungry or cold or unwanted. 
Until one has experienced need it is 
hard to empathize, so we apathize. 

In his war message President Abraham 
Lincoln said: "My fellow citizens we 
cannot escape history. We of this congress 
and we of this administration will be 
remembered in spite of ourselves." 
Shortly before his death Senator Robert 
Kennedy expressed his philosopy of life. 
"Some people accept things as they are 
and ask why. I dream things never were 
and ask why not." 

How does this apply to students at 
SMC? I say we too cannot escape history 
and we will be remembered in spite of 
ourselves. We can accept things as they 
are and ask why, or dream things which 
never were and ask why not. Now why 
does the Student Senate have to do with 
all this? By getting involved we fight 
apathy. By fighting apathy we prepare 
ourselves for an active future. And the 
future is ours. Look around, there is 
no one else.

Emergency Telephone Assistance (ETA) 
is the newest industry on campus and has 
possibilities of employing the "greatest 
number of students," says Mr. Amenco 
Ciuffardi, director of the business. 

With headquarters in Dallas, Texas, 
ETA is a service-oriented organization 
providing notification and identification 
help during emergencies. Each member s 
information is stored in the latest micro- 
film storage and retrieval system for in- 
stand recall. , 

The company is only two and one half 
years old and has caught on throughout 
the coimtry. Plans are being made to 
open 77 regional centers. "ETA (also 
known as Life Bank) has been praised by 
both the medical profession and emergencj 
rescue squads throughout the nation," 
reports Ciuffardi. 

off air 

Lightning put WSMC-FM off the air . 
last week. Simultaneously with a bolt of 
lightning and a momentary power failure 
in CoUegedale the evening of September 14 
the WSMC signal disappeared from the 
air. Equipment was put out of commision 
at both the transmitter sites and the 
studio, according to John Beckett, 

Due to a continuing power failure on 
Whiteoak mountain, WSMC was unable to 
return to the air until about 10:00 the 
following morning, "We Had power for 
some equipment such as the emergency 
services in the building almost immediately 
but the three-phase power required for our 
ten-thousand-watt transmitter was out," 
stated Beckett. "We are happy to say that 
in our equipment nothing more expensive 
I than fuses were destroyed." 

Members of ETA are provided with an I 
identification card for their wallets and a I 
medalian to wear, each giving the mem. 
ber's identification number and instruc. 
tions to call the central office toll free. 

Types of emergencies that can be 
helped through ETA include: auto 
accidents, industrial or home accidents, 
missing children, epileptic seizure victu)^ I 
heart patients, drug sensitivities, and 
insurance confirmation; the list is end- 
less. Mr. Ciuffardi tells of a lady who 
called her ETA number when her house 
was being broken into. The police were 
on the scene within minutes of her call. 
After a person has subscribed, as an 
emergency calls can be made as necessary I 
at no extra cost. [ 

Early in the summer of this year SMC I 
was able to obtain the franchise from EtJ 
for twenty counties in four states: North! 
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Teiuiesseil 
Students now have the opportunity to 
make this service available to citizens in 
this area. 

"The student will be his own boss," 
says Ciuffardi. "He will set his own houn| 
and work at his own pace." The only 
qualifications necessary for the job are, 
personality to meet people, an attractive I 
professional appearance, and a steadiness I 
and determination. I 

Mr. Ciuffardi says the student's earainJ 
will be 40% of his sales. Thrity-nine | 
students have already signed up for work | 
and another 40 or so have expressed a 
serious interest.

Upholding his claim that "Ait should •

Ameho wUl combine a history of art 
with the actual feature-of-the-moment

the Passion of Christ. 

During the passion scenes the audience 
sees the final scourgings, the mocking 
whipping, and crucifixion itself vividly 
displayed as the Face reflects the suf-

Gilbert Amelio is an American artist. 
He studied fme arts at the University of

and Edgar Ewing. Although painting 
was his major subject, Amelio also took 
a course in sculpturing from Professor 
Merrell Gage, famous for his Face of 

Amelio first conceived his idea for the 
"Face of Christ" as a response to a 
series of answered prayers. Employing 
sculpture, music, and literature in a con-

his audiences a new realizarion of a 
three-dimensional artistic creation as well 
as a greater understanding of the sacrifice

"It's the fastest growing class on 
campus"states Dr. Arno Kutzner, 
Director, of Admissions and Records. 
Building Technology has grown from a 
small class of 9 students last year, to 
29 students this year. This is the 
second year of this Associate Degree 
program offered in Building Technology. 
Hiawatha Estates on OolteWah-Ringold 
road, is the sight of the one already 
completed home and three more cur- 
rently' under construction. 

The houses being built this year are 
all on lots of approximately two acres. 
They will cost somewhere in the 
$60,000 price range, states Mr. Robert 
Warner, faculty instructor. One of the 
houses now under construction is al- 
ready sold. The reason that the houses 
are so large, according to Mr. Warner, is 
so they can accomodate the twelve to 
fifteen students working on them. 
Also, he feels that building a fine home 
creates a pride in each of the students 
that in turn promotes better work- 
manship and better learning. 

First year students spend first semes- 
ter totally involved in the class. 
Morning classes are drafting classes, and 
from one to five in the afternoon, 
they work at the construction site. 
Second semester they take general class- 
es in the morning. 

The second year students do all the 
work on their own. Mr. Thomas 
Grindley is in charge of them, but only 
as an overseer. Each student figures 
the cost of materials down to the 
smallest details and submits his bid for 
each particular phase of the construction. 
The lowest bid is chosen and the student 
who submitted it becomes, the contractor 
for that particular part of the project, 
with the rest of the class working . 
under him. They also do the plumb- 
ing, electrical wiring, framing, block 
work, cabinetry, in short, all but the 
heating and air-conditioning. An 
added incentive is that during' the second 
year, students are paid $2.00 an hour 

for work on their houses. 

Mr. Warner was quick to inform 
that, "Without the administration that 
we have at this school, this project 
wouldn't have gotten off the ground. 
They are very flexible people. They 
didn't know what they wanted last 
year, but they knew they needed some- 
thing of this nature. I told them 
about this set up. They bought it and 
they were willing to try. If they 
hadn't been this way they never would 
have o.k.'d the blueprints to the first 
house, its teaching them to build with 
originality and pride. Building "quality" 
and developing pride in it is half the 
battie. We want to develop christian 
talents to further the Lord's cause.'' 

The Industrial Arts department 
recently purchased a bus in order 
to provide transportation for the 
Building Technology students to and 
from work. This was necessary due to 
.the size of the class and the amount 
of tools needed on the job 

You might be interested in what is- 
done with the money from the sale of 
the houses. Expenses and anticipated 
sale price are figured so closely that 
profits are not as great as you might 
expect. Nevertheless, $5,000 was 
donated to the Nicaragua Mission 
Project, as well as a summer's work by 
two of last year's class at the mission 

Mr. Thomas Grindley, new on the 
faculty this year, is in charge of one 
group of first year men, and the second 
year students. He comes to S.M.C. 
from Farmington, New Mexico, and is 
king toward finishing the last nine 
units of .work on his Masters degree in 
Industrial Arts. 

When he was askqd if he had any 
comments on the class, he smiled and 
looked up at the hot sun, shifted his ' 
weight on his crutch (the result of- 
hiirting his knee while clearing the build- 
ing site), "If the weather stays like this, 
it will be BEAUTIFUL." 







During the week of Sept. 10-15, 
Elder Desmond Cummings, Jr. conducted 
the Fall Week of Prayer at Forest Lake 
Academy in Florida. Mrs. Cummings 
disclosed the main theme of Elder 
Cummings' scheduled talks, "Victorious 
Christian Living" through daily contact 
with Christ and concern for fellow man. 

Morning and evening meetings were 
held each day with topics such as 
"Coping with Habits," "Prayer." and. 
"How to Deal with Forgiveness." The 
film "Faith, Hope, and Love" was^hown 
in three parts during the evening

A new concept in teaching-a teacher 
exchange- is in progress between the 
history departments of Oakwood College 
and SMC. 

Dr. Carl Anderson, chairman of the 
history department at Oakwood College 
in Huntsville, Ala. spent last week 
teaching on the SMC campus. On 
October 3, Dr. Jerome Clark, professor 
of history at SMC, will be at Oakwood 

According to Dr. Clark, it is only 
natural to have an interchange between 
the teaching resources of the two colleges 
because of the short distance between 

Dr. Anderson taught the class in 
History of American Minorities, as well 
as the English class, Introduction to 
Linguistics. Dr. Clark will teach the 
classes Denominational History and 
International Relations. 

Dr. Anderson also spoke to the Inter- 
national Relations Club meeting Thursday 
on the topic "Civil Rights Today." 

The results of the experimental teacher 
exchange will be reported to the 
Association of AdventisI Historians at a 
convention in San Francisco, December 
I 28-30. The Association is made up of 

history teachers in Adventist colleges 
I and academies, as well as recent graduate 
students in history. Representing SMC 
at the convention will be Dr. Clark and 
Mr. Floyd Creenleaf, assistant professor 
of history. 

Dr. Anderson, a white teacher at a 
predominately black college, averred that 
there was no problem in his relationship 
to black students. When he first went 
to Oakwood College, he told his stu- 
dents that he was color-blind 

According to Dr. Clark, it is hoped 
that the exchanging of teachers will 
prove worlhwhOe and be adopted on a 
wider scale.

Mr Aussner shaking hands with General Samoza. 

Student mission 

opens new medical clinic 

by Beveily Emm 

Nicaragua is a word that means a lot 
to the Students of SMC. Most students 
know that there is a missionary clinic there, 
but not everyone knows the story behind it 

It costs a lot of money to run a clinic, 
and money is what people don't have 
enough of. Nicaragua is a hard country 
to get any supplies into because of the 
high custom's fee required on the goods. 
With this is mind Mr. R. R. Aussner, 
faculty sponser for Student Missionary 
Activities, journeyed to Nicaragua this 
summer to see General Somoza, the 
ruling power in the country. General 
Somoza is the only five-star general 
in Nicaragua, and as a result he is one 
of the most powerful men in the govern- 

Mr. Aussner was given .permission to 
present this case at an Emergency Com- 
mittee meeting which was called. At that 
. meeting he was given a chance to introduce 
the program, which is being conducted by 
Southern Missionary College to help the 
Miskito Indians, to numerous govern- 
ment officials with General Somoza 
himself translating. The object of the 
presentation was to obtain permission 
to bring supplies into the country duty 

Dr. Mejilla Ubilla cutting the ribbon on inauguration Day. 

Later that week Mr. Aussner was in- 
vited to supper with the General, his 
wife, and her parents. This supper gave 
further opportunity to explain the aim ant 
purpose the clinic hoped to accomplish 
among the Indians. General Somoza was 
extremely interested and asked many 
questions not only regarding the mission 
but also about why Mr. Aussner didn't 
eat or drink certain things. 

The result of that visit and also the 
presentation at the committee meeting 
was permission to bring supplied for the 
clinic free from the regular custom's 
fee and sales tax. 

Mr. Aussner also went to visit Dr. 
Fernando Valle Lopez, the minister of 
Health, who donated a gift of 226 lbs. 
of medicines to the mission, along with 
granting exemption from the license fee 
placed on vehicles. 

This exemption was especially 
appreciated as the clinic has three vehicles, 
an old jeep, a truck, and a new carry-all 
van donated by Mr. and Mrs. E. McKee. 
The carry-all van, badly needed by the 
clinic, has air-conditioning, four wheel 
drive, and room for ten people. A 
major part of its work is acting as an 
ambulance, since the clinic has an average 

of five emergency runs a week to the 
nearest hospital forty-five miles away. 

There was some trouble with the 
customs officials in getting the van into 
the country. They wanted to charge 
$5,000 plus 5% sales tax. Mr. Aussner 
reminded them of the General's ruling, 
and finally the only fee that was paid 

s $ 1 1 .00 in stamp fees. 

Another problem which arose was the 
fact that the papers for the land on which 
the clinic stands had not been received. 
Mr. Aussner went to visit with the 
director of the Agricultural Institute of 
Nicaragua, Dr. Rodolfo Mejilla Ubilla. 
He discovered that the reason for the 
delay was the fact that the mission wasn't 
registered with the government. A fee 
of $2,500 - $3,000 is normally charged 
to register anything with the government, 
but God intervened and $900 was the 
only charge. The mission is now re- 
gistered as the Seventh-day Adyentist 
Mission of Tasba Raya - S.M.C. 

Mr. Aussner asked Dr.. Mejilla Ubilla 
to have the papers for the land drawn up 
by the Inauguration Day of the clinic. 
On that day it would be decided whether 
the mission was to expand or just remain 
as it is, a clinic in one of the four villages 

of that area. 

Inauguration Day was July 31, 1973. 
General Somoza was to have attended, 
but trouble in the capital forced him to 
remain where he was. However, he sent 
several other government officials to re- 
present him. Mr. Aussner was presented 
with the papers for not only the land on 
which tlie clinic and the mission house 
stand but also a portion of land in each 
of the three remaining villages and a large 
percentage of land fron) an area centrally 
positioned amidst the villages. 

As a result the future plans for 
this area are to have a small clinic in 
each village with a 12 bed hospital, church 
school, an agricultural and experimental 
station, and industries such as a broom 
shop and woodwork factory in the 
center section. These plans may take 
several years to finalize, but with God on 
our side and with the support of the stu- 
dents of SMC, nothing is impossible. 

Any student interested in the Nicara- 
guan mission project who would like 
to help out in some way should contact 
Mr. Aussner, Modern Language Depart- 
ment. Lynn Wood Hall.

George Walker, a professional artist 
from San Diego, Calif., has joined the 
Art Department staff of SMC for the 
'73-'74 lall semester. He is teaching the 
Painting I class and two sections of the 
Drawing I class. 

Mr. Walker obtained his advanced 
training at the University of Oregon where, 
he states, "I became oriented to the north- 
south of the art world." 

He has been teaching art for mneteen 
years, chiefiy to private individuals and 
adult-education classes; but now he is 
having a new experience-teaching 
college students. "If I could choose an 
age group that I'd prefer to teach, I'd 
choose the college age," says Mr. Walker. 
"They're usually taking the class because 
they want to. It makes a difference 
whei- they're interested. 

Before coming to SMC, Mr. Walker 
was set up for some art jobs in New York 
City. His main occupation is free lance 
artistry, the bulk of his work being 
original oil paintings, watercolors, and 
house plans.

to speak 




Eld. H. H. Schmidt, president of 
the Southern Union Conference, will 
highUght Careers Day activities Tuesday 
when he speaks to the student body 
in the 11:00 chapel program. 

Speaking on the topic "My Reward 
-How Determined?", Eld. Schmidt 
will use as the foundation of his 
talk the parable of the laborers 
recorded in Matt. 20; 1-16. 

He will emphasize the point that 
all of the laborers received equal 
wages at the end of the day, 
even though some had started working 
later than others. The faithfulness 
and motives of the workers were 
what counted, not the amount of 
time they had worked. 

Eld. Schmidt will draw from the 
story a contrast between the world's 
viewpoint on a career and the 
church's viewpoint. Service, not 
self-gain, is the aim of true Christian 

"Not the amount of labor per- 
formed or it's visible results, but 
the spirit in which the work is done 
makes it of value with God." 
Christ's Object Lessons, p. 397. 

The chapel speaker will point out 
that Jesus defmed the purpose of 
His career based on a formula of 
serving others. God's business must 
be our business; His career must be 
our career. 

An excerpt from Eld. Schmidt's 
text states, "When our life's course 
has been finally run and our plow 
pushed aside, God will then re- 
ward us according to how we have 
used our time."

Week of 

The first regularly scheduled 
faculty meeting of the 1973-74 
academic year was held Sunday 
evening at 7:30 pjn., September 23. 
President Frank Knittel presided at the 
assembly. The subject of the meeting 
was the Fall Week of Spiritual Empha- 

It was announced that all morning 
meetings will be concluded promptly 
at 11:45. This will be to allow time 
for voluntary prayer bands following 
the morning meetings. The pro- 
vision for prayer bands after the 

moming meetings has not been a part 
of the overall program of the Weeks 
of Spiritual Emphasis for a number of 

President Knittel noted that several 
of the speakers during past Weeks of 
Spiritual Emphasis had been some- 
what disappointed with the attendance 
of the faculty at the meetings. The 
faculty were encouraged to, when- 
ever possible, attend the meetmgs and 
they were also specifically requested 
to participate in the voluntary prayer 
bands with the students and their 

It was also requested that the 
faculty refrain from administering reg- 
ular tests or making unusual assign- 
ments during the week. 

There was a question and answer 
period during the meeting Gener^ 
procedural aspects of the FaU Week 
of Spiritual Emphasis were discussed. 
According to Dr. M.D. CampbeU, 
chairman of the chemistry depart- 
ment, a prayer service concluded the 
meeting, showing the concern by the 
faculty that the Fall Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis would be positive 
experience for aU who participated. 

When the annual Denominational 
Careers Day comes to SMC Tuesday, 
it wfll be a little different than it 
has been during the past two years, 
according to Dr. Cyril Futcher, 
academic dean. 

There will be no displays or 
booths in the physical education 
center; things will be done on a 
quieter scale. Neither will classes 
be interrupted as before. Only the 
12:00 and 1:00 period classes will 
be omitted. 

The sole purpose of Careers Day, 
according to Dr. Futcher, is to 
show students what the SDA church 
has to offer in the line of denomi- 
national employment. The day is 
designed to encourage students to 
consider working for the denomi- 
nation after graduation. 

The following personnel will be 
on the campus to advise students 
concerning their future plans: 
7 conference presidents 
9 hospital adininistrators 
Others from Southern Union: 
J. H. Whitehead 
V. W. Becker 
H. F. RoU 
H. E. Metcalf 
Eric Ristau 
5 local conference educational 

Academy principals 
Union associate medical and 
dental secretaries 
These men will be discussing 
employment situations with indiv- 
idual students. Interviews are to be 
ananged throu^ the department heads 
of the fields represented. 

During the interviews, information 
will be taken concerning the qualif- 
ications for employment of the 
individual seniors. 

The interviews have in the past 
proven to be beneficial in helping 
seniors find job opportunities in 
the Southern Union. 

The academy principals will be 
looking for deans, teachers, and 
other staff members. 

Medical Technology students will 
be encouraged by representatives of 
Florida and Madison Hospitals to take 
their last year of training at these 

Others will be encouraged to come 
back to the Southern Union for 
employment after they have finished 
graduate work in law, medicine, 
denistry, and other such fields. 
There is also opportunity for some 
financial assistance for those attend- 
ing graduate school who have been 
hired by certain branches of the 
denominational work in the Union. 

Chapel at 11:00 ajn. will be 
presented by Eld. H. H. Schmidt, 
president of the Southern Union. 

Following chapel, luncheons will 
be held in designated areas for 
the various groups of interest. 
The meals may be charged to 
the Southern Union. Luncheon 
and interview areas are as follows: 
Nursing and paramedical 

Main dining room 
Elementary and secondary 

Large banquet room 

Banquet rooms A-D

The interviews will be from 2:00 
to 5:00 p.m.

appointments for ministerial groups 
with the conference presidents and 
ministerial secretaries. 

Mrs. Doris Payne and Mrs. Chris- 
tine Shultz will arrange appoint- 
ments for the nursing students. 
Paramedical groups wiU have appoint- 
ments arranged for them by Dr. 
Henry Kuhlman.

appointments will be arranged for the 
students by Dr. Huldrich Kuhlman 
and Dr. M. D. CampbeU.

ducted in the educational building.

Why work for church? 

Tuesday is Denominational Careers Day, a 
time set aside for consideration of the professional 
opportunities avaUaNe in the Seventh-day Adventist 
denominational structure. 

Tie day is designed to help students become 
more aware of the responsibilities of working for 

In light of this purpose, we share the follow- 
ing statements from the pen of Mrs. Ellen G. 

"There is room m the work of God for all 
who are fiUed with the spirit of self-sacrifice. 
God is calling for men and women who are 
willing to deny self for the sake of others, 
willing to consecrate all they have and are to 
His work. Men are needed who, when they 
encounter difficulties, will move steadily on, 
saying. We will not fail or become discouraged. 
Men ar« needed who will strengthen and build 
up the work that others are trying to do." 
Reviev) and Herdd, April 28, 1904 

"Dear young friends, remember that it is not 
necessary to be an ordained minister in order 
to serve the Lord. There are many ways of 
working for Christ. Human hands may never 
have been laid on you in ordination, but God 
can give you fitness for His service. He can 
work through you to the saving of souls. If, 
having learned in the school of Chrst^ you are 
meek and lowly in heart. He will give you words 
to speak for Him." 
The Youth's Instructor, February 6, 1902 

"The church is organized for service, and in a 
life of service to Christ coimection with the 
church is one of the first steps. Loyalty to 
Christ demands the faithful performance of church 
duties. This is an hnportant part of one's 
training; and in. a church imbued with the 
Master's life it will lead directly to effort for 
the world without. There are many lines in 
whuh: the youth can find opportunity for 
helpful effort." 
Education, pp. 268, 269 

"The work above all work,— the busmess above 
all others wluch should draw and engage the 
energies of the soul,— is the work of saving 
souls for whom Christ has died. Make this the 
main, the important work of your life. Make 
it your special life work." 
The Youth's Instructor, May 4. 1893

Dear Editor: 

Then there's the matter of roadj 
It seems that the Hamilton County 
Divison of Roads has decided to 
make-as the sign so aptly states- 
some "Slow road repairs." It 
has in the short ~ span of two 
months, through a super-human ef. 
fort, given us a badly needed dirt 
road from "Four Corners" to 
Summit. After many arduous 
hours on the job, the Division 
has actually been able to work the 
road into a passable jeep trail. 

As the rainy season comes upon 
us, you will, I'm sure, notice the 
water collection basins provided foi 
in the road bed itself-for our 
convenience. These are not only 
desirable as storage depots for any 
precious water that can be saved, 
but are also needed environ- 
mentally, decreasing soil erosion 
in the area. 

I understand that due to a re- 
cent landslide, earthquake, or 
other natural disaster, the road 
has become momentarily grameled. 
Rest assured, however, that the 
boys down at the "HCDOR" will 
have our road back in shape in 
no time, complete with built in 
drainage ditches, rock quarrys, 
water holes, dust bowls and many 
other modem conveniences of 
mechanized America, maybe even 
some which we haven't thought of 

Let me say that I am proud 
to be Uving where such great 
advances are made in a state's 
Wghway system, yes, even daily. 
I am sure that the road will 
eventually fall again into its 
original state of asphalt and 
disrepair; but until then, let us 
rejoice greatly and be exceeding 
gjad for our dirt road. 

As for me, well, I'm building 
a car wash at each end. 

David Taylor 


"One of these days we will be 
the only ones left to take charge 
of the church, We are here learn- 
ing because we don't have any 
choice. I give you the senate as 
sort of a practice mission as to 
what well have to do in the future.' 
Moose Smith, SA vice-president, in 
his speech at Tuesday's chapel. 

"You have the hour of 
decision only when you hear 
the message of decision." Dr- 
Hans LaRondelle at the religion 

"I encourage you to take part 
in the school activities, whether 
as a senator or to just observe." 
LeClare Litchfield, SA president, 
in his speech at Tuesday's 

"EUen G. White's writings are 
not in conflict with the Biblical 
doctrines. They round out the 
Biblical picture." Dr. Hans 
LaRondelle at the religion retreat 

"I believe that love is a mind 
and body relationship which is 
grown in the spiritual soul of 
common unity." Des Cummings, 
Jr. in Thursday's chapel. 

"Don't have a domino fa**' ,■ 
a faith in the Book. But raUi<i| 
(have a faith) in the person 
Jesus Christ." Dr. Hans La- 
Rondelle at the religion retreat. 


"I don't believe we have a 
sex crises m our world today. I 
believe we have a love crises. 
Those people that have a physical 
relaUonship say, 'I love me, but 
I want you'." Des Cummings,

"Last year the church experienced 
a real shortage of certified teachers 
cast of the Mississippi," according to 
Dr. Stuart Berkeley, chairman of the 
education department. "We could 
have easily placed 50-75 teachers in 
the church this year. In recent 
years, there has come to be a need 
for male teachers in the early years of 
grade schools. The stigma is off-males 
are being placed." 

Schools outside of the denomina- 
tion in the Southeast have also ex- 
perienced a shortage of teaciiers. 
"If they're willing to go where the 
needs are, we can place them," Dr. 
Berkeley added. 

A great need has arisen for sec- 
ondary level teachers in industrial 
arts, especially in the public school 
systems. Math and science are two 
other areas of teaclung concern. 

The wages of a teacher for the 
denomination approximately equal 
that of the public school teacher. 
Increases in salary occur with ex- 
perience, especially within the 
SDA church. 

Denominational teachers make 
around S6,500 a year, with re- 

sustcntalion, and Social Security. 
Most benefits available to ministers 
are also available to teachers. 

Students who wish to obtain place- 
ment within the denomination should 
contact the principals and superin- 
tendents in the conference wliere they 
desire employment. 

For employment outside the de- 
nomination, the student should make 
application to the school in which 
desires to be employed. 

For more information concerning 
the education program, contact Dr. 
Stuart Berkeley, chairman of the ed- 
ucation department, and plan to 
attend the luncheon Tuesday in the 
large banquet room. 

Nursing and Paramedical 

Tliere are an unlimited number of 
jobs available in the Florida and Tenn- 
essee Conference in Adventist hospitals. 
The hospitals are looking for nurses 
and other personnel who are dedicated, 
consecrated workers for God.

ventist Hospital have opportunities 
for as many nurses who are willing 

to work any one of these three

A two weeks vacation is paid after 
one year of work in the hospital. 
After five years of work, the vacation 
length is increased to three weeks. 
One sick day is allowed per month. 

There is no difference in salary be- 
tween the baccalureale-degree nurse

Office Administration 

The demand for competent 
xretaries is great across the nation, 
jith demands increasing yearly. At 
he present time, the secretary is at 
he top of the list as far as employ- 
nenl opportunities are concerned, 
recent study showed that ample 
nployment for secretaries was avail- 
able for the next decade. 

The church needs secretaries. Many 
lof the medical institutions are forced 
\o hire from outside the denomination 
cause of a lack of qualified Seventh- 
Iday Adventist applicants. 

Educational institutions, conferences, 
land publishing houses are always in 
■search for qualified secretaries. 

Last year the National Secretary 
lAssociation voted to let Seventh- 
Iday Adventist secretaries take the 
■Certified Public Secretary exam on 
■a week-day rather than on Saturday. 
Bnow, Adventist secretaries have the 
Ijopportunity of attaining the 
^highest level in their profession. 


The denomination is in the need of 
competent businessmen. The many 
facets of the organizational structure 
of the church requre many well- 
trained people to work in the denom- 
inational work as businessmen. 

The church operates scores of 
hospitals that require the knowledge 
and foresight of a dedicated Christian 
businessman. Administration, account- 
ing, personnel directing, and many 
other such areas are in need of com- 
petent men and women experienced 

business knowledge. 

Seventh-day Adventists have 
always believed in the education of 
youth, no matter what the costs. As 
a result, numerous educational in- 
stitutions have sprung up all over the 
world. These institutions need 
competent businessmen to oversee 
the financial and business operations 
of the various organizations. 

The local conferences also need 
the guidance of dedicated accountants 
and business managers. 

The publishing work, one of the 






by John Davis 

most dynamic ways of spreading the 
Adventist message, also needs workers 
to assure that the best and most 
economical ways are being employed 
in the work. 

The Southern Union has opportun- 
ities for an auditing internship. 
Under this program, the intern works 
with the Union auditor and has the 
opportunity to visit the various de- 
nominational institutions. This 
allows a student to see what area of 
the work he prefers and also to be- 
come acquainted with prospective

Sept. 26, 1973 

A progressive and growing church 
was established in Hixson early this 
last summer after many months of 
searching for a place to hold the 
church services. The congregation 
is presently renting facilities from 
the Ashland Terrace Christian 
Church, but it has already begun 
making plans for building a sanc- 
tuary of its own. A plot of 
land has been purchased on Hixson 
Pike, three miles west of the 
Northgate Mall. They are hoping 
to worship in their own sanctuary 
by the fall of next year. 

When the Hixson congregation 
organized into a branch Sabbath- 
School in January, no one realized 
how fast it would grow. By 
late April it became a company. 

The next step of organization 
is becoming a full-fledged church. 

The original date for the or- 
ganization into a full church was 
September IS, but due to some 
unforseen circumstances, it is now 
set for this coming Sabbath, 
September 29. 

Tliis summer the members of 
the Hixson church forged ahead 
in their program of community 
witnessing. Several members are 
giving Bible studies, and others 
have gone house-to-house and 
signed up many people for the 
Voice of Prophecy correspondence- 
courses. A very successful 
Vacation Bible School was con- 
ducted under the leadership of 
Brenda Luster. The average daily 
attendance was 35 children-most 

Another factor that helped the 
church grow, was the student 
pastor program. Under the direct- 
ion of the pastor. Eld. Jerry 
Gladson, four students learned 
through experience the ways to 
be an effective spiritual leader in 
the church. The students who 
participated in this program were 
Ken Wilson, Bill Broome, Del 
Johnson, and John Davis. 

As a result of their work this 
summer, several Bible studies 
were started. 

The Southern Accent 

The student pastor program 
will continue through this school 
year under the leadership of two 
students-John Garner and Bill 

One of the biggest projects 
started in the Hixson area this 
summer was the Abundant Life 
Center, formerly known as the 
Salt Mine. 

Youth outreach in the conununity 
was the main emphasis at first. 
On Saturday nights, topics of 
interest were discussed with the 
young people. 

Recently, the Center opened 
a new phase of its work, and it 
is now a health food store. The 
director, Chuck Luster, is asking 
for volunteers to help run the 
store for a few hours each week. 
Anyone interested is advised to 
call Luster at 396-3276. 

As the work expands in Hixson, 
more people are needed to help 
witness to the residents of this 
community. It is the aim of the 
Hixson Seventh-day Adventist church 
to let every home in the area 
know about the church and its

The Faculty Senate meeting, in its 
second regular session of the 1973-74 
academic year, acted on several recom- 
mendations, including one of particular 
interest to students. 

Acting on the recommendation of 
the Student Affairs Conunittee, the 
Senate has approved the wearing of 
slacks by women in the Student 
Center after 7 pjn. 

Even thou^ the Senate has passed 
this matter, it will not be enacted for 
a period of four weeks. This time 
period is to allow other faculty mem- 
bers to petition the action to the 
Faculty Assembly for repeal, if they 
so widi. According to reliable 
sources, there is a distinct possibility 
of this happening. 

StudenU Kay Waller and Bob 
Zima were in attendance at this meet- 
ing of the Senate as members, having 
been temporarily appointed to these 
posts by SA President Leclare 
Litchfield. Also in attendance was 
John Smith, SA executive vice- 

The Senate is currently engaged 
in the revision of the Faculty 
Handbook. They approved the 
following revisions. 

Grievance Procedures 

If any faculty member(s) feel he 
has cause for grievance in any matter 
not involving dismissal, and he has 
failed in his attempts to resolve the 
issue on a personal basis, he may 
petition the Faculty Affairs Committee 
for redress. The petition shall set 
forth in detail the nature of the 
grievance and shall state against whom 
the grievance is directed. It shall 
contain any factual 

contain any factual or other data 
which the petitioner deems pertinent 
to his case. Submission of a petition 
will not automatically insure considera- 
tion of the case by the committee. 
If the committee decides the facts 
merit arbitration on its part, it will 
seekd to bring about a settlement 
satisfactory to all parties concerned 
The committee will report its find- 
ings and recommendations to the 
parties involved. Items of a personal 
nature will be held in confidence by 
the committee. 

Faculty Dismissal 
Each member of the faculty U 
expected, by his attitude, behavior, 
beliefs, and interpersonal relationships, 
to enhance the intellectual, spiritual, 
and social atmosphere of the campus. 
Failure in one or more of these as- 

Ihe faculty affairs committee shall 
appoint a hearing committee of five 
members of the faculty assembly-a 
chairman, two from a list of four 
names submitted by the president and 
two from a list of four names sub- 
mitted by the faculty member, but 
not later than thirty days from the 
time the petition was received. The 
faculty member may bring a counsel 
of his choice to the hearing. The 
parties involved shall make every 
effort to present the most reliable 
evidence available and the committee 
shall conduct the hearing in a manner 
which is just and equitable to both 
the administration and the faculty 
member. Within seven days of the 
close of the hearing, the committee 
shall forward its report to the presi- 
dent and to the faculty member.

Formal dismissal proceedings against 
a member of the faculty are initiated 
by a letter from the president to the 
faculty member notifying him of the 
president's intention to recommend 
his dismissal to the board and the 
reason for this action. Such notifi- 
cation shall be given at least sixty 
days in advance of the board meeting 
at which the dismissal recommendation 
will be made. Ordinarily, first-year 
faculty members should receive notice 
of dismissal proceedings no later than 
March I and all others no later than 
January I. However, if gross and 
inexcusable inefficiency, neglect of 
duty, personal misconduct, or 
repudiation, defiance or subversion of 
the standards and teachings of the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church as set 
forth in the statement of the beliefs 
in the Seventh-day Adventist Year- 
book is involved, notification of 
dismissal proceedings may be rruide 
at any time. 

A faculty member who has received 
written notification of dismissal proce- 
edings may, within twenty-one days of 
such notification, petition the faculty 
affairs committee for a hearing of 
his case. Upon receipt of such peition 

the faculty member, read the report 
of the hearing committee along with 
his recommendation for dismissal at 
the board meeting. The faculty mem- 
ber may appear with his counsel, who 
shall also have the privilege of speak- 
ing, before the board at this time. 
This appearance constitutes his appeal 
to the board. While the hearing is 
pending, if the president deems it 
necessary, the faculty member may be 
suspended, but his salary will continue 
at least until the board takes an action 
on the case. 

Scheduling and Coordination of 
Curricular and Extraccuricular 
Activities as related to the 
Academic Program 

1. That unless approved by the 
faculty senate, no college wide 
activities which interfere with class- 
es be added to the activities calen- 
dar after it is printed. 

2. That field trips include no mart 
than one day of regularly sched«ii 
classes, and no class may have 1 
more than one field trip a semal 
which causes students to miss oik] 
regularly scheduled classes. f 
Exceptions to this policy may j, I 
made only by the Academic Aftk 

3. That a copy of the proposed 
activities calendar be sent to utA 
teacher by the end of the firji I 
full week of classes of the seconji 
semester and that the proposed 
activities calendar be reviewed by 
the faculty senate prior to the 
annual college board meeting. 

One aspect of the above revision I 
recommendation was tabled for fuit, 
consideration. It was that Bible 
Conferences, S.A. and M.V. WorkshJ 
Band trips, etc., be placed in the s 
category as field trips.

The Southern Accent 




at fair 

The Abundant Life Center, a pro- 
ject of the Off-Campus Ministry of 
the MV, was represented by a booth 
at the Chattanooga-Hamilton County 
Interstate Fair last week. 

The booth was set up to show 
fair visitors that there is a better way 
of life, according to Chuck Luster, 
director of the Center. Literature, 
fihn strips, and personal contacts by 
those running the booth dealth with 
"anything conducive to a rich, abun- 
dant Ufe." 

The booth, located in the Exhibits 
Tent, was centered around God's 
natural remedies for an abundant 
life. The eight remedies, as outlined 
by Mrs. EUen G. White, were lighted 
by blinking lights. The remedies are: 
rest, fresh air, sushine, trust in God, 
temperance, proper diet, exercise, and 

The film strips and projector were 
purchased from Eld. Richard Banon, 
director of the Health and Temperance 
Department of the Lake Union Con- 
ference, during his recent visit to the 
SMC campus for a week of temperant- 
living emphasis. 

The films were continuous-running, 
three-minute 8imn movies depicting 
the four dimensions of abundant liv- 
ing-physical, social, mental, and spirit- 

The booth at the fair has been the 
largest advertising and promotional 
thrust of the Center. The financing 
of it came from the Hixson church, 
and from the On-Campus department 
of the MV. 

The booth took over two months 
to build. It is completely transport- 
able, and can be used at other such 
fairs at other times. 

Luster estimates that the Center 
gave away over 2,000 magazines, such 
as Ufe and Health and Listen. 
Several hundred people were also sign- 
ed up for the "Wayout" program 
offered by the Voice of Prophecy. 

A mobile clinic was also used by 
the Center. The van was run by 
student nurses giving blood pressures. 
The fair officials expressed their sur- 
prise that someone would be willing 
to donate such a medical service to 
I people for no charge. 

The fair was held from Monday 
through Saturday night. 

The Abundant Life Center is 
located on the Hixson Pike in Hixson, 
Tennessee. The outreach program is 
designed to reach every age level and 
every type of personal preference, 
says Luster. The Center conducts 
seminais in drug use, mountain climb- 
ing, and many other aspects of 
living abundantly. 

The Center invited the well-known 
radio personality Chickamauga 
Charlie to visit the health food store 
in Hixson. He came, planning to 
spend only five minutes looking around 
the store. He ended up staying for 
about two hours, discussing the various 
aspects of healthful, Chrisitan living.

Student appointees approved 

The first meeting of the 1973-74 
Student Senate convened Monday evening 
at 7:30. Bill Shelley, MV President, open- 
ed the meeting with a short devotional. 

Miss Ellen Zollinger, one of those 
responsible for the planning of the 
interior decor of the Student Center, 
spoke to the senators about the scaling 
in the senate meeting room and asked for 
their evaluation of it. 

She explained that the admittedly 
unconventional furniture was chosen to 
increase the orientation of the room 
more toward student meetings and 
other activities and to discourage the 
scheduling of regular classes in the room. 

Reasons for the cxclusing of a fall 
free day from this year's academic 
calender were presented to the Senate 
by Dr. Lawrence Hanson, chairman of 
the Math department. He cited as the 
primary reason, the comparitively short 
number of teaching days in the fall 

Dr. Hanson also talked with the 
senators about the functions of the 
Faculty Senate and its relationship to 
the Administration, Faculty and Student

Still 160C an hour 

The student who arrived at SMC to begin the 1971-72 
school year found the tuition at S780 per semester; a 
head of lettuce at S. 1 8 a head; gas at S.29 per gallon; and 
the campus wage at SI .60 per hour For the 72-73 school 
year the tuition rose to S848 per semester; a head of 
lettuce rose to $.20; gas had risen to S.34 per gallon; the 
campus wage was still SI .60 per hour. This year, tuition 
has risen to S888. Added to this is the S40 minimum per 
month cafeteria bill, multiplied by 7 months of school, 
which equals S280 + S888. This year we also have the 
S7S General Fee which comes out of the S300 the student 
pays in advance. The S75 General Fee is a relatively new 
animal, but is listed in the catalog as paying for the 
Southern Memories, Student Association fees, etc. So 
the student is conceivably paying S75 + S280 + S888 
which equals SI 243. A head of lettuce costs $.40 and 
you can usually find a gallon of gas for $.40 if you look 
long enough. The campus wage is still S1.60. 

Last February 26, 1973, Mr. Charles Fleming appeared 
before the Student Senate and discussed the $40 mini- 
mum rate for the cafeteria. It was mentioned during his 
visit that the cost of education at SMC was continually 
rising as the campus wage was remaining constant, 
which in effect puts the student between "the rock and 
the hard place." His counsel was to not worry, Congress 
would pass the minimum wage next year. One senator 
noted a raise in the minimum wage would never pass. 
Mr. Fleming disagreed and history has proved him correct. 
Congress raised the minimum wage last month, but our 
President vetoed it a week later. 

Where does all this leave the student? He is making 
the same $1 .60 per hour to pay for: the tuition, which 
has risen from $780 to at least $963, not counting the 
$40 minimum cafeteria fee; a head of lettuce (and other 
foods) which was risen from $.1 8 a head to $.40 a head; 
a gallon of gas which has risen from $.30 a gallon to

-John Heath, Collegedale Postmaster, 
Thursday at his appointment ceremony. 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to compliment Mr 
Grange and the staff on the many jm. 
provemenls over last year's cafeteria 
services, I'm sure many are result of 
the better facilities of the new kitchen 
But it does appear that the staff is 
trying harder. 

I do however, have a couple of 
complaints. One Sunday afternoon 
on my way to a ballgame, 1 was not 
permitted to enter the dining room 
because of my clean, plain, but 
white T-shirt. The gentleman behind 
me was wearing a dirty, faded and lorn 
blue one and he was not asked to leave' 
I don't see the logic behind this petty 
rule and wish something could be done 
My other complaint, more imperative 
than the first, concerns the amount of 
food served that is deep-fat fried. 
I have heard many people, dorm students I 
village students, and faculty comment on 
this. 1 always thought that one of the 
main reasons for not serving meat in 
our institutions was because of the 
excess of fats in the meats. If we 
merely replace animal fat for vegetable 
fat we have accomplished little. 1 hope 
maybe some small changes could lake 
place to prepare the same foods other

Road condition 

Ed. note-Last Wednesday we pub- 
lished a letter from David Taylor regard- 
ing the condition of a stretch of road 
between Four Corners and Summit. 
Tliursday we received the following 
news release from the Tennessee House 
of Representatives: 

"Our rural road system is the most 
importajit and most neglected part of 
the state transportation system,"said 
Representative C.E. DePriest (D- 
Pulaski), chairman of the Special 
Rural Road Study Committee of the 
House of Representatives. 

"Our committee is going to try to 
fmd out what has happened to the rural 
roads system over the last several years 
It does no good for our farmers to raise 
the best cotton and soybeans in the 
South If they can't get them to market " 
the mid-state Democrat continued. ' 

The committee is studying the 
entire problem of rural roads from 
funding to the best available techniques 
and materials for construction and 
surfacing. The committee report will 
also include a time schedule of recom- 
mended improvements with cost estimates 
and recommendations for financing 

DePriest stated, "We're going to 
bring Tennessee's roads out of the bourse

and buggy days into the twentieth

we wont put out the money for

"No matter how insistent or urgent 
your message is, don't be discouraged 
when only a few people listen to you." 
Elder Richard Fearing, president of Hie

Collegedale police force - 
'not a Gestapo' 

Before last June, when Douglas E. 
Keller packed his family, bags, and 

i years of police experience to move 
here from Florida to become College- 
dale's new city manager and police 
[ chief, the community's police depart- 
I ment may fairly have been described 
I as less than a moving force. 

Back then, the four policemen 
I provided the city with one patrolman 
Ion duty each shift, issued six or seven 
l-traffic citations monthly, and were not 
Iburdened with much complaint work 
lin the peaceful religious hamlet. 

Keller brought a shakeup, or crack- 
down as some residents apparently 
think. Today, Collegedale's police 
force is at least moving, if nothing else. 

But there appears to be something 

A detective bureau; an identification 
[department; a bureau of public safety; 
and relations; a bomb demolition team; 
two additional full-time policemen, 
plus Keller; numerous training courses 
for policemen and participatory programs 
for citizens from school age through 
adulthood; a volunteer "reserve" police 
force which worked 800 hours in 
August— all arc among the things Keller 
has initiated. 

With the 20-member reserve, 
Collegedale fields four men in two 
patrol cruisers around the clock. Con-

centrating on traffic violations and 
attempting to reduce accidcnis-the city's 
worst problems, police wrote 80 
traffic citations in August. 

During holidays, six patrolmen 
in three cruisers prowl the town's 
23 square miles on each shift. 

And, says Keller, town residents 
who before did not call the police 
about problems are now calling. "We're

to serve and convince them we are

thusiasm and training for police work 
and trying to moderate his approach 
to an acceptable pace for the town's 
citizens, indicates some have been 
bewildered, perhaps disgruntled with 
his methods. 

"Some people have called to complain 
and seem to think we're running a 
Gestapo," he says, "but that's not true. 
We simply are trying to do our job and 
serve the city, to earn our pay." 

Referring to the rise in the number 
of traffic citations, Keller says the 
force's seven officers who have been 
certified in radar proceedures have been 
instructed to give violators a generous 
speeding margin before issuing a ticket. 

"We're not nit-picking and when 
someone gets a ticket, they really 
deserve it," he says. "We aim to give 
the citizens the benefit of the doubt 
and a warning rather than a citation 
if it appears that would help in gaining 
public confidence and respect." 

Furthermore, reports Keller, primary 
emphasis in the department is on police 




professionalism and courtesy. 

"We're here to serve in the police 
profession rather than enforce, and 
service to citizens and courtesy are the 
hallmarks of professionalism. 

"If there are any complaints about 
an officer being discourteous," says 
Keller, "I check it our personally. If 
it's true, I'm going to fire that officer." 

Keller's experience spans almost all 
phases of operation in Fort Lauderdale's 
metropolitan police force-from patrol 
and detective work to public relations, 
safety training, supervisory and academy 
instructor work. He has attended and 
taught seminars, gone through several 
FBI schools and is a certified instructor 
for the National Safety Council's 
driving programs. 

Training in these areas is being in- 
corporated into Collegedale's police 
department-mandatory defensive 
driving courses for policemen and city 
employees; radar, identification, 
weapons, detective and patrol work, 
arrest procedures, public relations and 
safety, and other courses are being re- 
quired not for fulltime but for reserve 

police academies, Keller wants to 
enroll his men. If the courses are not 
offered, he gives them himself 

The 20 reserve officers who worked 
800 hours in August also took 205 
course hours in these areas, reports 

"We aren't just putting men in 
uniforms," he emphasizes. "We're 
training them before they get their 
uniforms and while they're wearing 

For students, elementary school 
youngsters can get a membership card 
in the Junior Safety League after 
completing an instruction course and 
can have their bicycles registered and 
inspected three times yearly. 

Police Safety League membership 
for teen-agers follows a 16-hour traffic 
safety course. Other courses are, or 
soon will be available for college students 
and adults. 

Keller says Collegedale has seven or 
eight prowler calls monthly, and he 
worries because "prowlers turn into 
burglars or peeping toms." His patrol- 
men keep a "door-shaking" check on 
businesses from dark to dawn, but 
otherwise, the occasional fight or 
larceny constitues the city's crime. 

Perhaps these too will diminish 
with Collegedale's new efforts. If 
Keller has his way, they will. 

"Collegedale is the finest city in 
the finest state in America," says 
Keller, "and we're going to work to 
make it even better. That's the whole 
theory behind the reorganized force, 
to prevent crime and accidents."-by

at SMC 

Sunday through Tuesday of this 
week a seminar was held at SMC for all 
Southern Union secondary English 
teachers, according to Dr. Wilma 
McClarty, professor of English at SMC. 

Sunday night, at 7:30, the keynote 
address was delivered in the main banquet 
room of the cafeteria by Dr. Andrew 
Leonie, professor of education at 
Western Illinois University. Macomb, 
111. Dr. Leonie spoke on communications. 

Another off -campus guest, Dr. Doug 
Kingdon, a reading specialist from the 
University of Tennessee at Chat- 
tanooga, spoke on secondary methods 
and materials for reading. 

Participating were Mrs. Sue Baker, 
Mrs. Ann Clark, Mr. Bruce Gerhart, 
Mre. Minon Hamm, Dr. McClarty, and 
Mrs. Barbara Ruf, all from SMCs 
English Department and three English 
teachers from the academies, Mrs. Mary 
Childs from Georgia-Cumberland, Mr. 
Clinton Anderson from Forest Lake, and 
Mr. David Knecht from Collegedale. 
The seminar was coordinated by Dr. 
McClarty and Elder Vernon Becker, 
educational superintendent of the 
Southern Union. 

The purpose of the seminar was to 
provide an opportunity for the college 
and academy English staffs to discuss 
and analyze teaching techniques. Con- 
text was presented in three sections: 
reading on the secondary level, behav- 
ioral objectives, and curricula.

to be 

used as 



On the south side of the Home 
Economics Building, also known as 
Summerour Hall, there is an outdoor 
classroom in the making. The project 
was optimistically slated to be finished 
by the beginning of this school year, 
but the completion date has been moved 
forward, and work is continuing. 

The "Nature Nook," as coined by 
Mr. Charles Lacey, superintendent of 
the Grounds Department, has advanced 
beyond the blue-print stage, but has 
recently been stalled. With a skeleton 
summer work-crew and the flooding of 
Sept. 13 which completely washed away 
three lawns that Grounds was working 
on, Mr. Lacey has not had time to 
finish the project. 

To date the ground has been cleared, 
the hill terraced, and shrubbery planted. 
The split logs for benches, the poles 
for floodlights, and the gravel for the 
terrances are all ready for installment. 

Plans began last year for this outside 
classroom when Mr. Lacey wanted to 
make -the ugliest place on the SMC 
campus" into something useful. In 
addition to what has been done already, 
he plans to install electrical outlets 
for a projector and a loudspeaker system; 
there will also be a blackboard, a podium, 
and the planting of an evergreen ■'screen ' 
for privacy. 

Once the classroom is completed, it 
can be used by "the Pathfinders, any 
Sabbalh School class, any class teacher, 
at any time of day or night," says Mr. 
Ucey. -by Everett Wahelmsen 

Student Senate, continued from page 1 

Each senator was requested to 
vote for 23 students from a list of 
eligible candidates for Who '^i Who 
among students in American 
and Colleges. 

Senate President John Smith asked the 
senators for approval of a group of 
informal floor rules. They were 
unanimously approved and are as 

/ 77icrc are certain issues in which it is 
necessary for Senators to present without 
address by the Dean or other administra- 
tive officers. In these cases affirmative 
and negative teams will he assigned, or 
elected. The affirmative will uphold the 
subject, the negative will uphold the 
status quo. For instance, in the subject- 
"Should girls be allowed to wear slacks 
in the Student Center?", the pro would 
hold-'Yes, girls should be allowed to 
wear slacks in the Student Center. ' The 
con would hold 'No they should not. ' 

Senators should be allowed to vol- 
unteer for the particular side they wish, 
regarding any particular issue. If no 
one volunteers, then sides should be 
assigned by the Chair in consultation 
with the parliamentarian. This can be 
done by alphabetical order, precinct 
number, or any systematic way the 
Senate chooses. 

Assignment of presentation will be 
done two weeks ahead of time. For 
instance, assignment for the meeting of 
October 1J>, would be done on October 1. 
It is most desirable Senators will volunteer 
for subjects which interest them. How- 
ever, it is also necessary we view each 
issue as open minded as possible. There 
will be times when an unattractive 
subject comes for discussion. It is 
foreseeable at these times, sides could 
be assigned rather than elected. As 
stated before though assignment would be 
done in a systematic manner, and all 
would eventually have active part in 

2. The pro would have the first pres- 
entation. This would involve four to 
to seven minutes. The con would follow 
with the same time limit imposed. After 
this, the floor is open for questions 
from the Senators for up to ten minutes. 
If needed, this time limit may be extend- 

edbya majority vote of the Senators to 
such time as they shall deem appropriate. 

After the Senators questions, there 
will follow an additional seven 
minutes of questions from the non- 
Senate visitors present if desired. This 
time can be extended once for five 
minutes by a majority vote of the 
Senators. After all discussion the nega- 
tive will close with a three to five minute 
summary. Afterwards the pro summar- 
ies will come to a vote. 

While the Senator is presenting his 
case he may not be interrupted except 
by the Chair or Parliamentarian. 

During discussion it is to be kept in 
mind we are discussing topics and not 

individuals. Personalities should be 
avoided at all cost, and all questions 
or comments are to be toward the subie 
at hand. ' 

3. The agenda as mentioned above shall 
be published 24 hours after the last 
previous Senate meeting. 

One reason for this is to give those 
presenting the sides of the issue ample 
time to prepare their case. If other 
Senators have input on the issue, they 
should relate it to those responsible far 
presentation. Another reason is to 
give the Senators ample time to spe(^ 
to their constituents & measure their 
interests on the subject. 

These items placed on the agenda 
would desirably be specifically stated 
by the Senators. If there is no suggesHoi, 
from the Senate, the Chairman in consul- 
tation with the Parliamentarian will be 
left to decide. 

Subjects not on the agenda will not 
be discussed except when deemed 
vital, and then only in a limited manner 
at the end of the Senate meeting. 

Any visitor who wishes to address 
the Senate and is not on the agenda 
will be allowed time at the close of the 
business on the agenda. If this is past 
the hour designated for close of the 
meeting. Senators will not be re- 
quired to stay. The reason for this 
stipulation is to discourage unplanned 
items arising in which the Senate lias 
done little preparation or spoken little 
to their constituents. Visitors are 
allowed time to question relative to the 
issue under paragraph 2. 

4. Some topics will not relate themscim 
to the pro/con approach. These would bt \ 
instances when the Senate is addressed 

by various metnbers of the administra- 
tion on topics such as, "What should die 
school do with the available secular 
chapel time?" etc. In these cases Sen- 
ators will sometimes be expected to 
take polls of their constituents, engage 
in rap sessions, etc., and then present 
their findings and questions after 
address by the speaker. 

Under these new rules, two of Ihc 
five issues will be considered at the 
next Senate meeting. They will be 
I ) Whether the yearbook in it's prcsciil 
form should be abolished, (on the pro 
side of this issue will be Senators Zimu 
and Landcss, and on the con side. 
Senators Marsh and Palmer); and 2) 
should the residents of the women's 
residence halls be penalized for laie 
minutes. On the con side of this issue 
will be Senators Fillman, Lyics and 
Zima, and on Ihe pro side. Senators 
Holland and Marctich. 

SA treasurer Dim Bogar presented 
to Ihc Senate, Ihc final financial stale- 
mcnt for last school year. The stalc- 
mcnl was unanimously approved. 

The meeting was adjourned at

mur opinion as Chairman of 

tident Senate, how did the elections 


|disappointed actually, but as 

^t myself as anyone else. 
pBw many people voted? 
Idbn'l have the exact figures with 
IjiOw. It was roughly 570, 1 think 
jut the figure is misleading. 

Ml, there are approximately 1 135 
iii'tory students and 400 village 
Ijills. Of course, all my figures are 
jj but it ends up with a 30% turn- 
Bfiunting village students, and a 50% 
pin not counting village s'udcnls. 
]/U do you attribute the simll 

.:i the village to? 
^n't know. I'm a village student 
', and I guess 1 am typical. Most 
Sits who live in the village are 
|d and older. Most have children 
lbs which occupy a great deal of 

Jbbably the furthest thing from their 
M is to go out of their way to vote 
; a Senate which really can't do 
ich lor them. 

Another problem is what I said a 
nulc ago, having the polls located at 
loiivcnicnt places. I could kick my- 
f for having the voting in Lynn Wood 
ill. That was my mistake. I guess it 
IS a good place a few years ago when 
irybody had classes there. We had 
[here last year loo, and so I just 
lowed suit and decided to have it 

In the future, I'm going to try 
Mething different. We'll have 
ling for six meals in the cafeteria 
finning at breakfast one day and 
ding at supper the next; we'll have 
both nights in the dorm, and the last 
(lit at room check: the last day, we'll 
' to SCI up a booth outside the Post 
Pice for village students; and have more 
blic relations. 

Of course, these are tentative plans 
d will liave to approved by the Senate. 
Hven though there was a 50% turn- 
It in the dorms. Were you disap- 

Yes, I guess 1 was. I think we should 
! able to get a 70% turnout or even 

higher. And we probably will when we 
make it less of a hassle to vote. 

Now that the elections are over and 
we have a Senate, what do you want 

Once again, 1 think we have to be 
practical. It's important to me that the 
Senate meetings go smooth. The 
parliamentarian, Steve Jones, and 1 
have drawn up some procedures which 
I think would help. They have to be 
approved by Senate so I won't go 
into them. Of course, if the Senate 
doesn't want to use them, they wouldn't 
work anyway. But first things should 
be taken care of first. 

What are your goals for Senate? 
I do have definite goals, things I 
would like to see happen. But I'm 
one. What do the students want? 
That's what is important, and that's 
the beauty of the Senate. There are 
many things coming up. Already this 
year we've had the change in football, 
the mixed swimming issue, girls slacks 
in the Student Center, & other matters 
in which the Senate could have had a 
large contribution to make. One big 
thing this year is the "annual"issue. 
There are quite a few Senators interested 
in doing away with it. That'll be coming 
up soon. Then there's late minutes, and 
TV censorship. I imagine there will be 
some discussion on both of those in the 
first couple of meetings. 

Do you have particular goals of your 

Yes I do. 1 want to make it a very 
good year. 

A very good year? Can you narrow 
it down to any specifics? 

1 could, but I prefer not to. If my 
goals and directions are out of line with 
the majority of the student body, then 
I'm wrong. I'd rather lead the way they 
want to go than the way they don't. 1 
will say this, I'd still like to get a 
train signal up, before one of us gets 
killed You know some kids from Chat- 
tanooga did get killed last December. 
I would also like to get a scholarship 
fund, and a tutoring program started. 
I would also like to do something 
for the village students, and I think if 
we can help them, then they will be more 
■ interested. If they're more interested 
then they'll take part. And if everyone 
takes part, we can make SMC a better 
place to get an education. And that 
is important.

Collegedale receives 
new Postmaster 

John Heath was appointed post- 
master of the city of Collegedale Aug. 
25. Mr. Heath, who was formerly 
officet-in-charge, succeeded Mrs. 
West, who resigned last November. 

Mr. Heath comes to Collegedale 
with 13 years' service in the postal 
service in the Chattanooga area. He 
assumed his office last Oct. 30 at a 
ceremony at the post office, when he 
received his certificate from Frank C. 
Moore, the Sectional Center Manager of 
the U.S. Postal Service. 

Also present at the ceremony were 
Collegedale Mayor Fred Fuller, R.C. 
Mills, SMC busmess manager. Dr. 
DeWitt Bowen, commissioner of 
roads, and relatives of Mr. Heath. 
The appointment was announced by 
Carl C. Ulsaker, Regional Postmaster 
General for the Southern Center. 

Heath is presently conducting a , 
survey into the possibiliy of installing 
a curb deliveiy service for the College- 
dale area, a move necessitated by inad- 
equate boxes in the Collegedale post 
office. The service is now provided by 
the Ooltewah postal service. 

The survey is to decide if the servkie 
would be a city delivery or a rural 
delivery. A city delivery involves a 
uniformed postman who drives a postal 
vehicle; a rural delivery, instead, involves 
a postman without a uniform who 
drives his own cat and is able to sell 
stamps and money orders. The survey 
is designed to determine the number of 
famUies that would be benefit from the 
service .

O Sailing 
for Oct. 1 3 

On October 13, John Biddle, acclaim- 
ed as "the world's foremost yachting 
cinematograplier." will present a 90 
minute lecture-film entitled "A Sail for 
All Seasons." 

This program will lake the place of 
the originally scheduled program on the 
college calendar. Irv Wermont's "The 
Man With the Computer Mind." 

According to Mr. Jan Rushing, co- 
ordinator of the 1973-1974 Artist/ Ad- 
venture Scries, the film will cover all 
kinds of sailing, from pleasure to racing. 
It will be an all around film for sailing 
during all four seasons of the year, and 
at all places in the world. 

Through all of his experiences, it was 
the lure of the sea that eventually pre- 
dominated in Biddies life. Years of 
ocean and bay sail racing, from 1946 
to 1956, also made his job of "road" 
salesman seem painfully uninspiring. 
His avocations of photography and 
sailing were combined. 

He filmed a yacht race to Bermuda in 
1956 while a crew member on one of 
the entries. From this material came his 
first show length film on sailing and his 
career as a sailing-film-lecturer on 
sailing, plus numerous short films for 
associations, manufacturers, and tele- 
Tickets for the John Biddle show, 
as well as the William Wendom program 
for the following Saturday night, went 
on sale in the Student Center on October 
1 . On October 4, the tickets will go on 
sale in the Campus Shop. 

Holders of l.D. cards will not be 
charged for the Biddle program. Prices 
for those not having l.D. cards will 
range anywhere from $ 1 .00 to $2.00, 
depending upon where the seats are

Spanish students 
progress at own rate 

Spanish students this year are learn- 
ing with a new programmed approach 
developed by Mr. Helmutt Ott, 
assistant professor of modern languages. 
Instead of being tied down by the slower 
students or struggling to keep up, a 
student can now work at his own pace. 

Says Mr. Ott, "The student is the 
constant factor. The time and the 
material are the variables." 

To provide more individual attention, 
Mr. Ott has divided each class into small 
study groups of five to seven students 
who are working at about the same pace. 
He says, "We need real situations in 
which real people talk." 

When a student begins a lesson, he 
goes to the language lab for three 
class periods for individual study and 
practice. He meets with his group 
the fourth class period for additional 
practice and discussion of any problems. 
During the fifth class period, the group 
meets with the teacher for more drilling 
and some final explanations. Then, 

if they feel ready, they can take the 

In order for a student to go on to the 
next lesson, he must get an A or 95% on 
the test. If he does not, he may re-take 
the test with no reflection on his grade. 
The test includes both written and oral 

Every two weeks, the entire class 
meets with the teacher, at which time 
Spanish culture is studied. Faculty 
members and other individuals in the 
community are invited to speak and 
show slides or movies. 

The final grade will be based on the 
number of lessons completed by the 
student. If, at the end of the year, the 
student hasn't finished enough lessons 
to get the grade he desires, arrangements 
can be made for him to continue until 
he has finished, Mr. Ott explains.

Softball season 
nears completion 

With Softball season coming to a 
close Chrispens remains undefeated in 
fast pitch play with a 9-0 record. 
Chrispens eliminated the other fast 
pilch teams last week as they clinched 
the fast pitch title by knocking off 
Corbett 9-6 and Cockrcll 4-2. This 
leaves Chrispens with three remaining 
games and the other teams with at least 
four losses, thereby giving Chrispens 
the fast pitch title. In other action on 
the fast pilch circuit last week Spears 
ripped Hale 7-3, Cockrcll whipped Spears 
7-3, Hale shutout Cockrcll 4-0, Corbett 
downed Spears 74, and Cockrcll out- 
slugged Corbett 11-6. 

Wiehn lost his bid for an unde- 
feated season as Okimi downed him 
10-6. Wiehn di3 rack up two more wins, 
though, by romping Davis 19-5 and 
shelling White 14-2. In other slow 
pilch action Zollinger nipped Okimi 
25-22, Okimi coasted by White 29-8, 
Davis beat Okimi 14-5, Zollinger 
took two games from Davis 12-1 1 
and 22-11, and Zollinger won his 
fourth game last week by taking a 
7-0 forfeit from White. 

Only one game was played in the 
women's soflbail league last week as 
Walkins defeated Ledford 11-10. 
Watkins started the scoring in the 
bottom of the first inning with three 
runs on four hits. Ledford came right 
back in the lop of the second inning to 
pull ahead with four runs on two hits. 
Walkins came to bat swinging in the 
bottom of second, collecting six 
more runs on five hits to lead after two 
innings 9-4. 

In the third inning Ledford cut that 
lead by two with a home run by Lou 
Ledford and some facy base stealing 
by Nelda Denton. Watkins went score- 
less in the third inning. Ledford put the 
pressure on Watkins by scoring four more 
runs in the top of the fourth and last 
inning, leaving Watkins one run behind. 
Walkins tied the game at 10-10 in the 
bottom of the fourth, and no outs 

and one on base Melody Skorelz 
brought in the winning run with a single 
to left center.

was held Sunday at the Moccasin Bend 
Public Golf Course. The placement and

$1 7,000 goal missed by $1 ,568.42; 
Taylor blames lack of student participation 

As the money poured in, it became clear that the $17,000 goal was not going to be reached. 




in SMC 

this year 

Last year there was much talk of slashed 
budgets in almost every department of the 
college. Effort toward economy and reduc- 
tion of expenses was taken, wherever poss- 
ible. And despite all these efforts, the 
overall operation of the college suffered 
a loss last year of approximately $222,000. 

In the area of instructional supplies alone, 
there was a $27,000 overrun of a projec- 
ted budget of $60,000. 

To a certain degree, the loss was pre- 
dictable, i.e., the tertiporary cafeteria oper- 
ation. However, a significant amount of 
it can be directly attributed to a somewhat 
unpredictable factor - enrollment. 

The enrollment last year remained at a 
level roughly equivalentto the enrollment 
of the previous year. But the budget and 
expenses, despite certain cutbacks, incre- 
ased, thereby creating the aforementioned 

In retrospect, it is interestmg to note 
that the last year in which the operation 
of the college posted a gain was 1970-71; 
It amounted to $58,000. During the 
1971-72 year, the college suffered a loss of 

This year, however, is a different picture. 
The fuU time equivalency (a combination 
of both part time and full time students to 
equal an approximate full time students) 
enrollment increase this year is 118 students. 

What effect will this increased enroll- 
ment have on the college budget? 

According to College Manager R.C. 
Mills, the operation of the college should 
post an approximate gain of $25,000 this 
year. This is due in part, of course, to the 
enrollment increase. 

In conclusion. Mills responded to the 
recent attack of the wage policy of the 
college by stating that the minimum wage 
wUI be increased to $1.90 per hour next

slated for 



For the first time in 15 years, the combined 
efforts of SMC and Collegedale Acaderny 
ingathering bands failed to reach the set 
goal. The grand total of this year's solicita- 
lionaddsupto$15,43!.58. In the total 
effort, more than 600 students and faculty 
contacted over 16,000 people and covered 
over 90 locations, the farthest being 
Gatlinburg and Cherokee and the closest 
being Chattanooga. 

Last year, over $ 1 9,000 was raised and 
this year's goal was set at $17,000 for the 
college, Collegedale Academy and Spalding 
Elementary School, and a combined goal 
for the three schools and the Collegedale 
Church was set at $24,000. 

Many of the locations where students 
canvassed made for an interesting trip in 
itself. The ten bands going to Oak Ridge, 
sponsored by H. H. Kuhlman, professor 
of biology, left in mid-morning and upon 
arrival at Oak Ridge toured the Museum 
of Atomic Energy, then began their can- 
vassing after lunch. 

Other trips included the Atlanta trip 
sponsored by E. 0. Grundset, associate 
professor of biology, and Rudolf Aussner, 
associate professor of modern languages; 
and trips to Signal Mountain under Eld. 
Des Cummings , Jr., college chaplain, and 
Lookout Mountain, under Dr. Marvin 
Robertson, professor of music and Dr. 
Donald Dick, professor of speech. 

While night drew on, William Taylor, 
director of college relations, drew close 
to the hopeful end of a fast. 

Taylor blamed the lack of student partici- 
pation as the main reason the $1 7,000 goal was 
not reached. 

Hot chocolate, hot apple cider, apples, 
and cookies were provided so that, as 
Mr. Taylor put it, the health minded 
students could, at best, have a choice.

Adios to the Yearbook? 

^ ,^-v Over the past few years, much criticism has been leveled at the 

r /l budget of the Student Association, specifically at Ihe money m- 
^-^ y volved in the publishing of the Soiitliem Memories, SMC s year- 

^~'^~ ° One-third of the SA budget is eaten up in this yearly publication. 
Along with the passing away of the yearbook at Andrews Univ- 
eisity has come many rumblings on this campus to have a smiilar 
fiinaBl for the Memories. ,,.,.. t 

Slated for the SA Senate meeting of October 1 5 is the issue of 
putting the yearbook to lest. 

Before any rash actions be taken by the Senate, the AcceiU 
strongly recommends that an in-depth study be given into the 
publications of both the Memories and the Joker to see what 
alternatives are feasible. With a total elimination of the yearbook 
mav come many resErets. .. ... ,. 

The Accent recommends a solution to the problem which would 
be a compromise between leaving the yearbook as it now is and 
completely throwing it out. The solution would entaU a total re- 
vamping of the Memories and Joker into one umted publication 
which would come out in a hard-bound, two-volume set. 

With the increasing enrolment, there is evident need for a hard- 
bound version of the Joker that would not be rendered lifeless (as 
recent Jokers have been) by mid-year from over-use. 

According to Memories Editor Harry Haugen, a hard-bound 
volume of the Joker could be in the hands of the students by the 
first week of October. The fffst volume, with a creative editor, 
could be more than just a Super Joker. Rather, it could be chromcle 
of the events of the latter portion of the year, whfch was not covered 
in the previous yearbook. 

The second volume of the yearbook would be much the same as 
the present Memories, and would tie published at the end of the 
second semester. Along with the second volume would also be 
issued a covo- to keep volumes I and II as a set. 

The notable differences between the existing situation, and 
the new concept of publKation would be a unity of content, 
coverage of the full year cycle of events, and an end to the 
duplication of the "mug shots." 

All this could be done for the same (or even less than) the 
present cost of both publications. 

No matter what course of action the Senate decides to take, 
the Accent strongjy suggests that the editors of both the Joker 
and the Memories be assigned the duty of receiving competetive 
bids for the printing costs. 

The Senate should also set deadlines on these publications 
from which the editors salaries would be docked proportionately 
to the lateness of the delivery (similar to the system used to 
encourage the Accent editor to publish a full number of issues.) 

This is by no means the only possible solution, but is is an 
alternative to making a decision which might be regreted in the 
decades to come. 

^A New Song' 

The majority of SMC students have been brought up in a 
religious atmosphere, many becoming mured to the Christian 
message because of the ritualistic format of a religious service. 

A sermon in music was presented Sabbath in the CoUegedale 
Church that was a refreshing change from the traditional order of 
formalism. Elder Gary Patterson, pastor, and Elder C.L. Brooks, 
Sabbath School secretary for the Southern Union, along with the 
help of the College Chorale, conducted the worship. 

Those who missed the worship service in CoUegedale missed 
a fine example of the advice given in Isaiah 42;10 - "Sing unto 
the Lord a new song."

at Monday worship in Talge Hall. 


Dear Editor, 

The men of Talge are sure glad the 
Jokers were published this year. We ha. 
almost lost hope. Asyou know, theJoitJ 
is the most widley read magazine i 

Wlien the publication finally appeared I 
there was no secret in the circulation 
proceedures, as one could follow the trail 
of empty boxes and trash left behind, Bgl 
as we poured over our much needed reftj 
ence manuals, some strange things appei 
We found that several names had been 
changed to protect the innocent. Also 
wlien 1 opened my copy the two middle I 
pages fell out. And, 1 hoped phone r 
would have been included. 

I'm not trying to run down this year's I 
edition of the Joker, these things can be I 
expected when they are issued so shortly I 
after registration. After, all, any kind of I 
Joker is better than no Joker at all. 

Sincerely, I

Calendar of Events both have been 

On Oct. 1 3 , instead of Irv Wermont's 
"The Man with the Computer Mind," 
John Biddle will present his film and 
narrative, "Yachts Under Sail." Mr. 
Wermont has had to cancel his entire 
tour for this year because of illness. 

Mr. Jan Rushing, co-ordinator of the 
1973-74 Artist Adventure Series,

Paul Tripp, who was scheduled to 
present his "WiU Rogers-U.S.A." Oct. 20 
is unable to keep this appointment. 
Because of problems with his work he has 
also been forced to cancel his entire tour 
for this year. 

Instead, William Windom, well- 
known humorist and actor, will present 
"Thurber," a performance on the life 
of James Thurber, U.S. humorous writer 
and artist. Mr. Windom is best known 
for his performance in "My World and 
Welcome to It." 

Both of these programs will be in 
the physical education center at 8 p.m. 
For I.D. card holders there is no charge 
for the John Biddle program. 
Tickets for non card holders are $ 1 .00 
and $2.00. Prices for tickets for the

1 1 ■ A program iniated by Mrs. Kathy 
I Tiinson, associate chairman of the B.S. 
nursing program on the Orlando campus, 
has now been adopted for use by the 
Florida Hospital in Orlando. 

Five years ago Mrs. Hinson felt that 
a class in natural childbirth was needed. 
She also felt that fathers should be 
included in the delivery room at the 
time of the births of their children. 

Arrangements were made with the 
Rorida Hospital to use the facilities 
to teach the class. Mrs. Hinson directed 
the program, but the actual teaching 
w>s done by the junior nursing students. 

At first many of the doctors were 
unsure of the merits of such a program, 
but most of their fears were soon allev- 

The parents who attended the 
classes were pleased, and told their 
friends about the program. The enrol- 
ment increased until the class had 
reached its present size of 250. 
The hospital, seeing the wide 
public acceptance and popularity 
of classes Parent Education de- 
cided to take charge of the program 
juid establish it on a permanent 
basis. Although the nursing students 
ate still assisting with the classes, 
two hospital staff members are 

managing them. 

The classes are six weeks long, 
and start every two months. Both 
the husband and wife attend, and 
the instructors teach them what to 
expect during the delivery. Some of 
doctors are now coming and giving 
lectures on such topics as anesthesia 
and planned parenthood. 

Mrs. Hinson's latest innovation, 
based on the concept of the family 
as a whole unit, is to allow children 
to visit their mother in the hospital 
shortly after delivery and see their 
new brothers and sisters. This is still 
on an experimental basis, and only 
the families participating in the 
program are allowed to take advant- 
age of these benefits.

CARTA neglected in Collegedale 

The Chattanooga Area Regional 
Transportation Authority (CARTA) has 
been serving Collegedale for one month as 
of Tuesday of this week, but it appears 
that few residents have been taking ad- 
vantage of the new serivce. 

Robert Ronka, assistant general 
manager of CARTA, says of the Col- 
legedale run, "Up to now the people of 
Collegedale have been enthusiastic, and 
Iwe'd like them to show this by being our 
passengers." He is quick to add that 
since this Collegedale route is new, and 
because the oudying areas of Chat- 
tanooga are sparsely populated, he 
expects it will take time to build up 

On June 30, 1 97 1 , CARTA officially 
came into being. With a $3,698,743 
grant from the Department of 
Transportation, and bids from several 
surrounding communities, CARTA 
began buying transit vehicles, drawing 
up plans, and painting the old Southern 
Coach Lines buses. On Jan. 28. 1973, 
ISouthern Coach Lines was turned over to 
CARTA and the new service began 
loperating. Along with the new CARTA 
icame a "new look:" refreshing blue and 
Iwhite "commuters"; colorful, modern 

seating; and a new information center, 
where by calling 266-0101 an in- 
dividual can complain or obtain infor- 

The fare for the Collegedale- 
Chattanooga ride is 50 cents, and the 
routing Is as follows:

Two SMC 



head for 
Forest Lake 

Two senior music majors Dennis 
Hunt of Berrien Springs, Mich., and 
Chervl Berkeley of Collegedale, have 
bee. assigned to Forest Lake Academy 
as s uderu leachers this semester, accord- 
ing to Dr- Stuart Berkeley, chairman of 

the Education Department. 

They are participants in a pilot 
program which would send students as 
Sent student teachers to Adventist 
boarding academies throughout the 

Southern Union. ^„,i„„„ 

The two students will leave College- 
dale immediately following mid-tcrrn 
examinations and will reside in the dormi- 
tories on the FLA campus until the 
Christmas holidays. 

Hunt will be assisting Mrs. Patricia 
Silvers, the academy band director; 
Cheryl will assist J.D. Bledsoe, key- 
board instructor. Both students will 
serve as counselors in their dormitories 
and wUl totally involve themselves in the 
boarding school program. 
I Dr LaVeta Payne, professor of education 
and psychology, and an unspecified 
faculty member of the Music Depart- 
ment will be SMC's supervising teachers 
and will visit FLA periodically to advise 
the two students. 

"This arrangement represents a de- 
parture from the traditional practice of 
SMC whereby the student teachers have 
been assigned to area schools," says Dr. 
Berkeley. "If this pilot project is suc- 
cessful the Education Department hopes 
to assign from five to ten elementary and 
secondary teachers to an Adventist 
campus which will serve as a student 
teaching center for a particular 

This plan is being followed in 
other Adventist colleges and is common 
in public colleges and universities. 
Encouragement for this new arrange- 
ment has come from students and ed- 
ucational administrators in the Southern 
Union who have long desired that 
student teachers could receive directed 
experience in boarding academies and 
Adventist multi-grade schools. 

Final action on the plan has not yet 
been taken.

New Sabbath School 
system gets under wq 

A new Sabbath School program, des- 
ianed to involve more students in a tnore 
p°ersonal way, was begun last Sabbath on 
the SMC campus. The one large Sabbath 
School formerly held in the physical 
education center was replaced by hree 
smaller ones held in Darnells HaU 1 1 , 
Thatcher hall worship room, and the 
Student Center auditorium. 

Each Sabbath Scliool has four student 
superintendents who are individually 
responsible for one program per month. 
Though all Sabbath Schools have the 
common theme "God's Promises and How 
He Honors Tliem," the weekly program 
may follow a more specific theme chosen 
by the superintendent. 

About 70 people attended Daniells HaU 
Sabbath School where Superintendent 
Sandy Davis, a freshman from Phoenix, 
Arizona, began with song service accom- 
panied by the piano. The program follow- 
ed the usual format with Scripture and 
prayer, a mission story, and special music, 
and ended by dividing into three groups 
for the lesson study. 

"The main thrust if my Sabbath 
School is to have short preliminaries so 
we can get down to the important part- 
the lesson study," says Sandy. "We will 
follow the lesson quarterly temporarily, 
but as each teacher gets to know his _^ 
class they may decide what to study." 
All teachers are students. 

Meanwhile in the Student Center, 
Superintendent Jerry Mobley, a sophomore 
from Goldsboro, N. C, opened Sabbath 
School with the lesson study. The cube 
room overflowed its capacity forcing 
some Sabbath School members to take 

their cubes and move into the main loll 
Since the building has no piano, To] 
Mobley, a freshman from Goldsboro,)! 
used Us guitar to lead song service. ' 
lack of a piano or fixed seating providj 
a relatively informal atmosphere. 1 

"These Sabbath Schools are stude J 
oriented" says Robert Warner, assotiiif 
professor of industrial education andl 
year's Sabbath School sponsor. "Wei 
to portray God's interest in our dailyJ 
and encourage student involvement ii 
Sabbath School program." 

A fourth Sabbath School wUl bekij 
in the physical education center this« 
It was cancelled last week due to Ta 
Show preparations in the building. 

When asked what lesson will be ijJ 
regularly, Jerry replied, "We will be si 
ing both the quarterly and Steps toCL 
hitting the highlights of each. 1 will J 
a general discussion for the quartetlyj 
divide into groups of ten or less for tlj 
Steps to Christ. But other superintei/ 
may want to study the same material] 
differently." Again, all teachers are 

"Standing Room Only" desctibesi 
situation at Thatcher Hall. Special n 
and a mission story followed song 
service, and Eld. R. D. Francis, assocal 
professor of religion, completed the 
program with a general lesson studya 
stewardship. Discussion was hesitauli 
first but grew more lively as the lessoil 

One change Superintendent Janice I 
Davies, a freshman from GettysburgiFr 
made from the traditional format wail 
coUecting the offering at the dooras|j 
left the room.

Report of the Meeting 

Board of Trustees 

October 1 , 1973 

1. The McKee Bakery lease was considered 
and adopted, as presented by Dr. Frank 
Knittel, from the College, and Ellsworth 
McKee, president of the McKee Baking 
Company. The new lease provided for the 
sale of the small plot of ground on which 
part of the facilities of Plant No. 2 now 
stand, and also called for a continuation 
of the lease which the McKee Baking 
Company now has in relation to the 
buUiUng and grounds occupied by Plant 
No. 1. The new lease calls for an annu^ 
lease fee of $110,000, which wUl be used 
to defray the cost of new buildings recently 
constructed on the campus. 
2. The Board approved an initial affirmative 
action statement, which is required by fed- 
eral law. The affirmative action statement 
declares that Souther Missionary College 
will employ people without regard to sex 
or ethnic origin. The law does permit a 
parochial coUege to select its employees 
from the membership of the specific church 
;hich supports the college. 
3. The Board voted that within the guideline 
as established by the General Conference, 
Southern Missionary College would accept 

the equivalent of no more than five per cent 
of its operating budget from any govern- 
ment agencies annually. This currently 
would restrict SMC to no more than $150, 
000 a year for operating income from any 
government agencies, including state and 
federal governments. This amount is 
considerably more than SMC has accepted 
in the past. 

4. APersonnell Committee was appointed 
by the Board, and the work of this comm- 
ittee will be to study in depth the total 
campus program and bring recomendations 
to the Board relating to various feautres of 
the college program and the personnell 
involved. It will be the task of this comm- 
ittee to study the entire economic picture 
of the college and to report to the Board 
any recomendations whereby costs can be 
cut without injury to the college program. 
This committee will make a cost analysis of 
all the academic offerings on the campus 
and will be reporting its findings to the 
college senate, but will be making its reco- 
mendations directly to the Board. The 
committee is comprised of the following: 
Dr. Wayne VandeVere, Dr. Mitchell Thiel, 

Dr. Lawrence Hanson, Dr. Tom Zwemer, 
Dr. Ben Wygal, Dr. Frank Knittel, Dr. 
Cyril Futcher, Elder Vernon Becker, Elder 
Robert C. Mills, Mr. Robert Merchant. 

5. The Board gave initial approval for the 
Business Department to have for its E.A. 
Anderson summer workshop, a program 
designed primarily for pastors of larger 
churches and those who are beginning their 
careers in conference treasurer offices. 
The workshop will feature instrucion in 
basic management skills, church finance, 
and general fiscal accountability and 
responsibility for church leaders. 

6. Dr. Ray Hefferlin was granted a summer 
service leave for 1974 for research and 
study. . 

7. The 1973-74 school budget was approvea 
by the Board. A budget for the current 
school year is always presented to the Boaro 
early in the school year after the actual 
enrollment statistics are available.

Ctaig Meisawr tries to hold onto the ban. 
(photo by Doug Faust) 

The residence hall forums, being held 
for the first time on a regularly scheduled 
basis this year, are already taking shape 
as vehicles of open and informal com- 
munication between faculty and students. 
Kenneth Spears, dean of student affairs, 
and President Frank Knittel are in the 
residence halls during worship time one 
night every month to conduct question 
and answer sessions. 

The purpose of the forums is to 
deal with issues concerning campus Ufe 
and to answer any questions. Under- 
standing between the administration 
and the student body is one of the chief 
objectives, with care being taken not to 
discuss individual personalities. 

By participating in the forums stu- 
dents are given a chance to voice their 
views on most topics and possibly 
influence changes of rules. The forums 
are also to be informationally helpful 
to the student body. 

Minimum board, telephones, dress 
code, and late minutes have been the ■ 
most common topics discussed so far. 
The fonim schedule is printed in the 
College Calendar. -Michelle Shimel

Other future plans for the band in- 
clude a concert Dec. 8, with a probable 
appearance by singer Russell Davis. Dr. 
McClarty is also corresponding with 
another major performer for an appear- 
ance in the Dec. 8 program. He de- 
clined to identify the performer, but 
stated that the artist is well-known 

Mr. WiUiam Swafford, a rock specia- 
list from Chattanooga, assisted the 
class members last Sunday in their 
search for fossils in the Collegedale 
area. Future dates are set for activities 
but no definite plans have been made. 

Dr. Christensen, who says minerology 
is taught in alternate years due to a 
limited amount of interest, recently 
acquired a cutting and polislung machine 
which is a great asset to the class. 
Students are required to make two objects 
with minerals and have a pfoject m

Softball season 
takes final swing 

Today marks the end of the softball 
season, with the ALL-STAR games to be 
played tomorrow evening. Tlie final 
statistics will be in next week's Accent. 

Chtispens won two more games last 
week to make liis record 11-0. Corbett and 
Hale fell to the bats of Chrispens, both 
by the score of 7-3. In other games last 
week. Spears whipped Cockrell 7-2, 
Corbett ran by Cockrell 4-2, and Cockrell 
took a 7-0 forfeit from Hale. 

Wiehn ended Ws season last week with 
an 1 1-1 record givinR him the slow pitch 
title this year. Wiehn won all three games 
he played last week as he out-slugged 
Zollinger 1 2-7, shut out Davis 9-0, and 
eased by Okimi 14-7. In other games, 
WTiite bombarded Okimi 23-9 and Okimi 
took Davis by the score of 13-8. 

In women's softball last week, Casil 
defeated Watkins 10-7 and the Academy 
team just slipped by Ledford 12-11. The

next new 


on campus 

The next building to be constructed 
at SMC will likely be a nursing center, 
according to Charles Fleming, Jr., general 
manager of finance and development. 

SMC has about 400 nursing students 
this year, is operating the largest nursmg 
school in Tennessee and is 0"^ ot the 
few in the United States to offer both 
the A.S. and B.A. degrees in nursing. 

To accomodate the large number ol 
nursing students and faculty, this build- 
ing will include offices for 25 instructors, 
lecture rooms, seminar rooms and 
laboratories. The most probable site 
under consideration for a building ot 
this magnitude is just south ol the 
parkinglot of McKee Library. 

The basic hold-up presently in 
the planning and construction of this 
nursing center is that it is not yet ade- 
quately financed. Mr. Fleming stated 
that SMC is within $ 1 ,000 of ha«ng 
enough funds to finance the budding 
without having to borrow. 

A definite decision concermng the 
nursing center is expect to be reaphed 
at the Dec. 6 meeting of the Board, 
by Bev Benchina 

New plus and minus 
grading system 

Mid-semester grades should appear in 
dormitory mailboxes on Oct. 24, 
iccording to Dr. Arno Kutzner, director 
of admissions and records. 

Teachers are being issued computer 
rosters of their classes, which they 
must return with grades marked in by 
5:00 p.m. Monday. The computer will 
sort the grades into reports to students 
ind parents, and print them inside 
imvelopes for distribution. 

The envelopes will then be separated 
and taken to the dorms and post office. 
Dormitory students will receive 
grades via their dormitory mailboxes, 
and village students' grades will be 
mailed to them. 

The grades are expected to be 
processed without any probems, since 
Dr. Kutzner's office is using the same 
system used for the last grade report. 
Next time, however, there will be 
a small change in the procedure. 
Teachers will mark grades on an optical 
scanning form similar to those used 
in recording chapel attendence, thus 
saving one more step in the process and 
hopefully decreasing both time and 

The grades themselves will look 
different this time. For the first time 
in the history of Southern Missionary^ 
College, letter grades will include " + " 
and ' - ". 

Calculating one's GPA (grade point 
average) is much the same under the 
new svstem. To help figure GPA (or 
ratlier, what it would have been with a 
B in chemistry instead of a C, since the 
computer does it automatically) the 
following table indicates how many 
grade points each letter grade is worth. 

A 4.0 C-^ 2.3 D- 0.7 

A- 3.7 C 2.0 F 0.0 

B+ 3.3 C- 1.7 

B 3.0 Dt 1.3 

B- 2.7 D 1.0 

Assuming a student had the following 

B/3hrs A/2hrs B-/3hrs C-f/4his 

he would calculate his GPA as follows: 
Multiply the number of hours in each 
course by the number in the table 
above showing the numerical equivalent 
of the letter grade received. Record 
the resulting numbers under a column 
labeled "Points." Then add all the 
'Points" together, and divide the 
resulting sum by the number of credit 
hours taken during the grading period. 
The result is the student's GPA.

Last Thursday the Women'; 
Dormitory Council voted unanimously 
10 abolish late minutes. Under the 
late minute policy, women dormitory 
residents receiving over 30 late minutes 
per semester were deprived of late 
leave privileges. Effective last Monday 
night the women receive no cummula-

to sign in at the door in order to 
save time for the resident assistants and 
the women. Closing time is still 10:30

TV Censorship 

Many questions have been raised within the past few 
weeks concerning the matter of the monitonng of the 
viewing of television on campus. There s«ms to be 
reason, therefore, for some explanation of th.s action. 

Many comments concerning the relative maturity and 
judgment of college students have been made in support ot 
leaving students to their own judgment as to what they 
should watch on the campus televisions. 1 would be the 
first to agree that, as individuals, coUege students should 
have as much latitude as possible in making personal 
decisions. I also would be quick to add that the personal 
habits of students that have been formed prior to then- 
coming to college are basically the ones which jyill 
prevail during the time they are a student. Thus, the 
student who has been an indiscriminate television viewer 
prior to his arrival on campus is probably the one who 
cannot see the point in having someone else determine 
what programs he should now watch. 

Television, properly used, can be rewarding. As a medium 
of communication it has no equal. But, improperly used, 
there is no doubt that it can be, and perhaps is, the most 
effective tool that Satan has to absorb people's time and 

Obviously there is no way of knowing what Mrs. 
White's evaluation of television viewing per se would be. 
However, since the majority of the programs that are 
viewed on television are of an entertaining nature, perhaps 
it would be well to look at some counsel given in this 

Probably no one would question the fact that television 
programming is centered around excitement and 
amusement. Yet we find such statements as: "The 
desire for excitement and pleasing entertainment is a 
temptation and a snare to God's people, and especially 
to the young." "It is Satan's policy to fill the mind with 
a desire for worldly amusement that there may be no time 
for the question, how is it with my soul?" {CT-325) 

To say that we should have no television on campus is 
an attempt to take the easy way out. (This thought passed 
through my mind many times.) This would be, to some 
extent, "throwing the baby out with the bath water." 
There is much produced on television that is good, ed- 
ucational and rewarding. There is that which, we would 
all agree, is not proper for Christians to watch. There 
are also a host of programs that are between two cate- 
gories. It is in this area that subjective decisions must be 
made as some of these would be permissable to watch 
whfle others would be offensive. 

Obviously, when judgmental decisions are made, every- 
one does not agree that they are right and proper. 
Nevertheless, it is imperative that they be made. They 
should be made with proper consideration, prayer and as 
much knowledge of the subject as possible. When such 
decisions are made, those who wish to disagree have a 
perfect right to do so. Hopefully, these protests would 
be made in the right way and in the spurit of constructive 

by Kenneth Spears, dean of students 

We're Sorry 

Last week an Accent reporter wrote that the 
minimum campus wage would be raised to $1.90 
per hour next semester. This information was 
incorrect. The campus wage probably will not 
be changed unless Congress raises the minimum 
wage to something other than $1.60 per hour. 
The Accent apologizes for this error.

All things 
are possible 

In class last week, discussion was 
centering on a particular problem. In- 
deed the problem was impressive, but I 
was surprised when a colleague said, 
"Nobody could ever do that." Since 
then, I have been pondering what it is 
that limits our ability and our vision 
as mortal students at SMC. First of 
all I consider we are granted our 
abilities and time by the Almighty. 
But, He has left these responsibilities 
with us, so to speak. President Kennedy 
said, "Here on this earth, God's 
work must truly be our own." As 
SMC students we can surely buy that. 
Virgil said "They are able because 
they think they are able," Virgil, 
as others when speaking on the subject, 
failed to put a limit on age. Neither 
did they put a limit on numbers. 

Martin Luther, a single young monk, 
began the Protestant Reformation. 
A young general in his late twenties, 
Alexander the Great, extended his 
empire to the limits of almost the 
world. A young woman in her early 
twenties, Joan of Arc, reclaimed all of 
France. Thirty -two year old Thomas 
Jefferson declared that all men are 
created equal. And need we forget that 
Jesus Christ, in his early thirties, changed 
the world. All I have mentioned were 
young, all leaders. All began alone. Is 
there any limit to what one can do? 
Yes, but some of the world's greatest 
movements were begun by one person, 
one young person. 

Each of us has feared failure. Jesus 
feared it too. And risk is involved in 
any venture. The Apostle Paul spoke 
a great deal of love, but never did he 
guarantee it would not hurt. I tend 
to believe, though, that the glory 
is not in never falling, but in rising 
every time we fall. And we will fall, 
because we are fallible humans. However, I 
will we let fear stop progress? Confucioui | 
said "It is better to light one small 
candle than to curse the darkness." 
Robert Kennedy believed, "the 
work of our own hands, matched to 
reason and principle, will determine des- 
tiny." Are we not determining it now? 

So, I doubt the veracity of a state- 
ment "nobody could ever do that." 
Martin Luther did it. Joan of Arc 
did it. Thomas Jefferson did it. 
We can do it, too, in our life time.

History of SMC - 'The School of His Planning' 

. wiiere does one begin to tell tlie 
Istory of the growth of an educational 
Pinstitution which has grown over the 
past eight decades from 23 students to 
{veil over 1500? Certainly the emphasis 
cannot be placed upon the quantity of 
students graduated, because the school 
has primarily strived for the quality of 
character in its students. Let's 
start at the chronological beginning, 
back in 1892. In this year a church 
school was started in Graysville, Tennes- 
see, A small classroom was rented above 
the general store. Twenty-three students 
were enrolled, with tuition set at a mere 
four dollars per month. 

For two years the school was held 
in the room above the store. Then, 
when it was moved into a new building, 
jt became known as Graysville Academy. 
The enrollment was 65, and for $100 
cash and working 1 'A hours per day, a 
student could pay his way through a 
school year in Graysville. 

In 1896, the name was changed to 
Southern Industrial School. Then, 
five years later it was changed again to 
Southern Training School. 

The school continued growing, and by 
1916, the plant facilities had almost 
outgrown the limited acreage available in 
Graysville. It was decided to relocate 
the school, and after much deliberation, 
a suitable location was found at what 
was then known as Thatcher's Switch 
(referring to the switch on the nearby 
railroad). The land was on a farm owned 
by Jim Thatcher, and the name College- 
dale was given to the community that 
was anticipated to grow in the valley. 

With the relocating to the new 
location, the name Southern Junior 
College was given the school. 

Crude buildings began to appear on 
the school grounds. The first permanent 
building to be built on the grounds 
after the opening of school was the store. 
The living conditions for the students 
weie unsuitable, but more and more 
students were asking for admission. 
Things back in 1916 were quite 
different than today. For instance, the 

first New Year's Eve at Southern 
Junior College was celebrated by six 
girls quietly sneaking out of bed. They 
ate a small snack in one of the girl's 
rooms, and then just as quietly returned 
to bed. Some time later the faculty 
heard of the celebration, and the 
girls were suspended from school. 

One cold winter night a young damsel 
slipped in the snow as she was walking 
to her night work shift at the print shop. 
For this misdemeanor the girl was 
campus bound. 

And incidentally, back in 1916, no 
faculty member owned a car. 

In 1917, Maude Jones Hall was 
built. It still stands today as one of the 
women's dormitories. Originally, it 
was built to be used as a men's dormitory, 
but women were the first to occupy it. 
Later, however, it did become a men's 
dormitory, but several years later it was 
given back to the women. When it was 
built, the porch of Jones Hall had loose 
boards which would fiy up when a 
person stepped on them. 

Only crude, dirt roads led into 
CoUegedale. Students who wanted to 
do any shopping in Chattanooga had to 
catch a train at Thatcher's Switch at 
9:00 a.m. They would return from town 
at 6.00 p.m. 

The college has suffered severe finan- 
cial pressures. In 1922, the budget for 
the coming year was S4,000 more than 
the funds available. The Board of 
Trustees felt that the school could only 
be shut down, but just before the chair- 
man of the board called for a vote. 
President Lynn H. Wood asked to meet 
with the faculty. At the faculty meeting, 
the faculty donated the S4,000 out of 
their salaries. The business manager 
offered to work for nothing if only 
gasoline would be supplied in order for 
him to get to and from Chattanooga to 
carry on the college's business. Teachers 
without families volunteered to work for 

Time passed and the enrollment 
continued to increase. In 1923, the 
General Conference voted to give $25000 

toward the building of an administration 
building. The building was to cost 
$70,000, but the first shovel of earth 
was turned without knowing where 
the remaining $45,000 was to come 
from. The building was named Lynn 
Wood Hall, in remembrance of the 
devotion of the college's second 

Southern Junior College continued 
growing at a rapid rate, and the time 
came for enlarging the college to the 
status of a four-year institution. In 
1944, the General Conference 
approved the request of the Southern 
Union Conference to raise the school's 
status to that of a sixteen-grade insti- 

Along with the change in status 
came a change in name. The new name 
for the institution was Southern 
Missionary College. It was announced 
then that the new name was "a grand 
name, a descriptive symbol of an in- 
stitution dedicated to the training 
of workers for God-Southern 
Missionary College-a missionary, 
one sent forth to preach the gospel, 
the first duty of every Christian. 
Many will go to foreign lands, but all 
may be missionaries in whatever calling 
they pursue." 

In May, 1 946, a class of six students 
participated in the first graduation of 
the senior college. 

As time passed, it became apparent 
that the college needed to be accredited. 
Accredation would permit pre-medical 
students to take all their work at SMC 
before entering the medical college at 
Loma Linda. It would also make it 
possible for graduates to receive teacher 
certification. Students could also 
continue to study in graduate schools 
after graduafing from SMC. 

The application for accredation was 
preceded by seven years of planning 
and building at the college. During 
these years of preparation, several 
faculty members earned doctorate 
degrees, and the library, science building, 
and music hall were erected. It was 

during this period that the college 
progressed at a more rapid tempo than 
at any other period in its history. 

Southern Missionary College was 
accredited in 1950 upon its first 

During 1961 and 1962, Southern 
Missionary College conducted a self-study 
program in co-operation with the 
Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools, the accrediting agency of which 
SMC is a member. Dr. K.M. Kennedy 
directed the study. 

The self-study was designed by the 
Southern Association to aid colleges 
in taking a systematic look at their 
past, present, and future plans. 

The Southern Association re-affirmed 
the accredaUon of the college. Also, 
the Nursing League for Nursing extended 
recognition with full accredation to 
SMC's department of nursing, the 
highest a division of nursing can receive. 

Two years ago (1971-72), SMC was 
up again for re-accreditation. A self- 
study of the college was directed by 
Dr. Melvin Campbell. The institution was 
once again fully accredited by the 
Southern Association. Every 10 years 
the college will have to be re-accredited~ 
the next time being in 1982. 

Today, Southern Missionary 
College is one of the foremost 
Seventh-day Adventist colleges. 
Enrollment figures this year have 
broken all previous records. 

But as the college grows larger, 
sending more and more graduates 
around the world, too often the humble 
history of SMC is overlooked. It is 
necessary to look in the past to under- 
stand the present and to acess the future. 
The college is what it is today because 
of what it was yesterday. The history 
of the college assures one that "We 
have nothing to fear for the future, 
except as we shall forget the way the 
Lord has led us." (Testimonies to 
Ministers, p. 31- j

Cross Country Run 
to be held Oct. 21 

Weigand hopes to place in top ten 

Heinz Wiegand, a "70 graduate of 
SMC, likes to run 10 to 15 mUes a day. 
Wiegand first became interested in 
track after he was drafted in March of 
1971 and was stationed at Walter Reed 
Army Hospital in the Washington D.C. 

While on active duty at Walter Reed. 
Wiegand joined the D.C. Roadrunner 
Track Club, which is set up to bring 
about competition amonst the 450 
members of tlie club. In April of 1972 
Wiegand took part in the well-known 
Boston Marathon, a 26.2 mile race in 
wliich more than 1 ,200 athletes took 
part, and placed 1 17. 

Wliile stationed at Fort Detrick in 
the fall of '72 Wiegand won four first 
places at the First Army Track and Field 
Competition at Fort Ritchie. Wiegand 
ran times of 15:35 in the three mile 
run, 9:56 in the two mile run, 4:35 
in the one mile run, and 33:1 1 in the 
six mile run. 

In February of 1973 Wiegand placed 
third among 237 entries in the 
Washington's Birthday Marathon at 
Beltsville, Maryland. There were 170 
finishers. The 24-year-old Wiegand 
posted a time of 2 hours 28 minutes and 
51 seconds for the 26 mile 385 yard 
course, which makes three loops through 
farmlands and rolling hills of the National 
Agricultural Research Center. 

Today Heinz Wiegand lives in College- 
dale, Tennessee. Wiegand averages 
70-100 miles a week every 1 2 weeks, 
then rests a week and tlien returns to 

Wiegand hopes to place within the 
top 10 finishes during the News- 
Free Press Cross-Country Run to be 
held on the SMC campus this Sunday, 
October 31. Next year Wiegand plans 
to run the National 50 mile champ- 
ionsliip race in New York City. The 
top three go to London, England to 
get the dubious pleasure of running 
the European double marathon champ- 
ionship .(52 miles). Wiegand also plans 
on running in the 1976 Olympic Trails 

"I jun for health, daily challenge, 
enjoyment, gain a hearing to witness 
for, Christ, and the serenity running 
gives me (especially the good shower 
afterwards)," Wiegand says. 

Phil Castleberg, a former SMC stu- 
dent and friend of Wiegand, is being 
sponsored by the American Heart 
Associafion on a 2,900 mile jog across 
the U.S.A. (from Seattle, Washington, to 
Delaware Bay) next summer to help 
raise funds for the March of Dimes, 
promote health, and be a positive 
witness for Christ. 

This First Annual News-Free Press 
Cross Country Run starts at 2 p.m., 
October 21st, at the gym of SMC. 
There will be a six mile run, a one mile 
run, and two two mile runs. The six

put to rest 

Softball season came to an end 
last week with Chrispens losing his 
last game of the season to Spears by 
the score of 2-1 . Chrispens came back 
the next niglit, however, to whip the 
All-Stars by the score of 9-1 . In 
other regular season play last week 
Corbett knocked off Cockrell 4-1 , 
Spears battled to a 3-3 fie with Hale, 
and Hale took a 7-0 forfeit from Corbett. 

Only one game was played last week 
in men's slow pitch as Davis slipped by 
Zollinger 8-7. 

There were no games played in the 
women's Softball league last week. 
A game between Casil and-the Academy 
may be played soon to determine the 
wirmer of the league. 

Hawaiian football starts today in- 
stead of Sunday, as earlier scheduled. 
According to the last report there 
will not be a women's football 
league, due to lack of interest. 
The women's volleyball league hopes 
to start its season this week. Men's 
voDeyball has not materialized yet, 
since the Hawaiian football season is 
taking a slow start. Further details 
on football and volleyball will appear 
in next week's issue of the Accent 

Plans are still under way for a cross- 
country run on Sunday, to be sponsored 
by the Chattanooga News free Press 
and Chattanooga Track Club Inc. 
Details on this event are printed in 
another part of this issue.

AAcKee Library begins unpacking 

• Lincoln library collection 
._, . ;*omo imanvvolumes, especial 

I Last August Dr. Vernon Thomas, 
aSeventh-day Adventist physician 
living in Texas, presented McKee library 
with a gift of 50,000 books, including 
two very valuable historical collections. 

biitial contact was made with Dr. 
Thomas when the college learned he had 
a Civil War collection consisting of 
hundreds of books and many periodicals 
as well as hand-written letters, news- 
Pa[>ers, and other materials covering the 
Chril War period. 

As negotiations for the Civil War 
collection were underway, Dr. Thomas 
informed the college that he had iii 
previous years acquired a very signifi- 
cant collection of Abraham Lincoln 
memorabilia from Mr. John W. Fling 
«. in Illinois. 

Included in the collection are some 
non-library materials such as cancelled 
checks of Presidents Lincoln and Madison, 
photographs by Brady, the official 
1 government photgrapher during the 
Civa War, and protraits of Lincoln. 
In addition to the Civil War and 
Lincoln collections, Dr. Thomas had 
f!O,00O or more volumes of important 
ubraiy materials, including a J ,000- 
volume collection of Ozark history 
Mid a substantial number of current 
TOiunes on art. Also included in his 
iioldings is a 10,000-piece record 

Many of the materials which Dr. 
inomas accumulated for his rare 
uorary were purchased by him, al- 
yoBgh some of the materials had been 
Oonated by people who knew of his 
™erest in Civil War history . , 

j*. Thomas has constantly expressed 
"*!sire to have his libnary material 
MC for study, research and general 
id it is considered a signal honor 
IC have been selected as the 
!nt for his collection. 

SMC was a logical site for this 
coBection due to its location in the 
heart of Civil War country. Another 
factor in its favor is the fact that SMC 
had a specific plan which was presented 
to Dr. Thomas for the housmg ot his 
materials. This consisted of utilEing 
the penthouse-the third floor of the 
Ubriry-as a special facUity to house 
,the coUection, enabling the coUection 
■jto be totally encapsulated withm its 

l°"p^fof the library material from Dr 
Thomas has arrived on campus and within 
the next two weeks the remainder is

is now being sorted, classified and 
faSted. It will take severa^ months 
to classify the matenal and made it 
avSffor scholarship. Th«e is not 
a neat deal of duphcation of mater al 
dSady in the libr^ary, but any duplications

The penthouse area of the library 
will be under strict supervision. 
Nothing wiU be brought into or taken 
from the room: all research matenals

imany volumes, especially the Civil 
War and Lincoln collections, McKee 
(ibrary is on the threshold of becoming 
[one of the outstanding small coUege

Mr Davis. "This would not have been 
possible except for the interest of the 
Board of Trustees and the school 
administration." ^^ Barbara Palmer

National Politics 
felt at SMC 

In the last two weeks Americans have ol«erved momentous 
events at the highest levels of government. Tliese even s 
have a great del of relevance and wUI be monumental m 
deteSg the course of our lives. Buy why should anyone 
2ltat«S?ld in what has happened? wfrv ?hould anyone be 
more concerned with the resignation of Sp™ Amew than 
Se National League Playoffs? There are probably those who 
stUl think AichiOald Cox is a name brand of clothes, 
Elliot Richardson is Secretaij- of Health, Education, and 
Welfare; and William Ruckelhaus is a building in Manhattan. 
Does it matter who these people are? If you ve ever read 
political novels, you will agree this entire sordid attair 
resembles one. Let us consider why these events and people 
are important to students at SMC. 

The Nixon admuiistration has had much to say, and 
much to do in regard to education. Loans have grown harder 
to come by; grante are more scarce; the minimum wage raise 
was vetoed by the President. Therefore, we are earmng less 
money to pay for the rising costs of college and the nsmg 
costs of food. 1 discovered this summer cases where students 
were being forced to drop out of school because their 
educational grants were being discontinued. So as students, 
especially, we wlio depend on our own income to pay for 
the costs of college, we are being direcdy affected by the 
shake-up in the Nixon administration. 

There has been a higher turn-over rate in the Nixon staff 
and cabinet than that of Franklin Roosevelt. FDR was in 
office for over twelve years. Daniel Schur of CBS News 
mentioned Saturday night that there have been five Attorney 
Generals in the last eighteen months. Never in the history of 
our nation has a Vice-President resigned under threat of 
criminal indictment. Nixon's former staff members have 
been indicted for many different crimes - perjury, burglanf, 
extortion, bribery, etc. If nothing else this comment on the 
Ftesident's ability to judge character or else his taste in 
character. So we're faced with a food shortage, a rismg cost 
of living, an empty Vice-President's office, and possible 
impeachment procedures, in fact, the call for impeachment 
has been sounded by democrat and republican. AU these 
variables have, and will affect the President's abDity to govern. 
He cannot possibly meet his domestic responsibility when 
administrative problems are occupying his time and interest. 
Domestic affaiis are those such as education, economic 
problems etc. The president does not have time to deal with 
these problems and congreee would not co-operate if he did. 
The country is then caught in the middle, with the student 
at the short end of the middle. 

We have looked briefly how we are affected as students. 
Let us now look at how we are affected as Seventh-day 
Adventists. As adventists we are very reliant on civB 
Hberties. When speaking of crvH liberties most people are 
referring to freedom of religion assembly, the press etc. 
There has been enough comment on Watergate and all the 
unpiications involves But how could it affect religious 
liberty? One major side effect is the American public can 
become so complacent they could care less about religious 
discrimination. If there is no concern about the ethics or 
our highest national office and it's conduct, who could 
seriously care about an obscure group of Seventh-day 
Adventist? People have ceased Being surprised at 'earth 
shattering developments' in the field of consitutional law. 
We are more interested in the soap operas than the Watergate 
Hearings. We are more interested in the National League 
play-ons than the resignation of Vice-President Agnew. 
But the hope for our future lies not in the soap opera, 
rather in the constitution. 

Ellen White comments in Fundamentals of Christian 
Education (p. 475^ "... (we) partake with them in the sins 
which they commit while in office." It is my understanding 
as an admitted layman, she referred to those for whom we 
vote. In Collegedale the count stood approximately 770 
for Nixon and 44 for McGovern. It is a sobering thought to 
consider we are partially responsible for the state of anairs 
we face today. Whether this is due to the lack of interest 
or ignorance changes matters littie. 

We have heard some people say they don't believe in 
heaven or hell. Their behef, however, changes little the 
existance of both. We have heard ourselves say we don't 
however, believe in, or aren't interested in pohtics. Our 
beliefs, however, changes littie the existance and effect of 
politics in our academic, social, and religious lives.

No Contact Sport 

Ed. note~The following article vw, 
written by Dr. Melvin Campbell in tW I 
defense of Hawaiian flagball. 

We invite your reactions to this 
article in the form of a letter to the 

The "no contact sport" rule could 
have some far-reaching effects on the 
intramural programs at SMC. 
Although primarily aimed at six-man 
flag football, it could well be applied 
to basketball as it is played. It must 
be stated that nowhere is it proper or 
legal to push, shove, hit, or knock dovt.1 
in basketball (yet at times it is used as T 
a strategy) as it is in football. 

It is very difficult under these 
contact conditions to maintain, let 
alone develop, a Christian spirit. 
Quarterbacks with clean jerseys and 
basketball guards, who never receive 
an elbow conceibably can be great 
Christian athletes. But, those on the 
line and under the boards. ..well, 
that is another story. Hopefully 
the "no contact rule" will omit 
the pugilistic nature of the intramural j 
program. Yet it will not remove the 
fierce competition. (The latter is a 
subject that needs study.) 

Both basketball and football have 
become spectacular sports avidly 
played by the men and watched by tktl 
women to the delight of the men. 
Which brings up another point - 
intramural activities for the women 
(and equal coverage in the Accent's 
sport's page). 

It would seem that in the vast num. 
of sports, many of which have carry^nj 
value, encouragement could be given L 
to the less pugilistic sports. SpecificaliJ 
tennis, tracK and field, golf, badmilloi,! 
volleyball, canoeing, swimming, skiing,r 
ping pong, archery, sailing, bowling, 
softDall, handball. Yet none of theseii 
the major intramural activites. 

It is true that one cannot identify 
himself with the Sunday television 
superstars playing the above sports, 
but it is hoped that one can find physic 
exercise, mental release, fellowslup, 
fun, and hopefully, a better Christian I 
spirit as a result.

Actor Windom discusses SMC 

Saturday evening Mr. WUIiam Windom, 
,nhablv best l<nown for his role in the 
LTevlion series "My World and Welcome 
1 It " performed in the physical education 

""hc remained on the SMC campus Sun- 
rtiv visiting with students, playing tennis, 
7„d running in the afternoon track meet. 

Following is an interview conducted 
by the Acceni staff at lunch in the cafe- 

What was your first impression of the 
College here? 

Well, there are several colleges which 
you this same impression. It's a 
mall tight, little community, based 
lither more or less loosely on their rehg- 
lius Eroup. Some are tighter, some are 
tot as tight. I lil<e a small college better. 
I tliink it's a gorgeous campus. 1 just 
J(e the attitude 1 see around here. It 
feems to be healthy. 

What did you expect when you heard 
Sou were scheduled to perform at a place 
\lled Southern Missionary College? 
I My agent said, "They are Seventh-day 
Idventists. You had better not count on 
"y tennis for Saturday." That's about 
1 he told me. 

I You don't necessarily teach only 
lisiicnaries here who are then going out 
isave the world. You've got about 100 
lligion majors here, and the rest of them 
;e involved in other studies. 
[ When did you arrive on the SMC

; Linda Lowe and Christine Schultz, 


1 sneaked in here yesterday (Saturday) 
lunch, and sneaked right out again 
lien I saw everybody all dressed up. 
fcerybody was all spiffed up, and I 
lought, "Well, no. It looks like a line 
■people who are seriously intent on 
spectablites, and they don't want me 
Siting in here." So I drifted right out 
ain. 1 went back and took a nap. 
[Have you ever had any contacts with 
wth-day Adventists before you came 

Yeah, and that's the thing I'd like 
to speak about. I have a theory that your 
home, your telephone, and your mailbox 
,aie inviolable. And 1 have been fighting 
iWc mail, unsolicited phone calls, and 
iBBple knocking on my door ever since 
Jlcan remember. 

Now, 1 could be in the shower, I could 
be asleep, I could be reading, or I could 
be crying quietly in the corner, but here 
comes somebody with a whole list of 
stuff. I'm not sure if they are all Seventh- 
liay Adventists. but they are on the relig- 







I don't know if they're a front man 
for a gang of car thieves, a sex nut, or a 
dope addict. All I know is that they are 
interrupting me unsolicitedly, so go away. 
And if they^re religious and sincere, I'm 
sorry, but go about it in another way. I'm 
not interested in having my privacy inter- 
rupted that way. 

What alternatives would you suggest 
for a religious organization to undertake 
in order to spread their beliefs? 

Put it in the paper. Advertise. Put it 
where I can find it if I choose to look for 
it. Don't come and pound me on the 
head with it. 

They've always been polite and charm- 
ing people. They don't get pushy if 
you tell them no, but occasionally, they 
catch you at an awkward time. 

Whether you're selling bird seed or 
religion, I'll come to you when I want 
something. And I can find you m the _ 
phone book or the classified ads. That s 
my opinion. . 

How did you get into actmgf 

Fooling around in school-you know, 
school plays. It seems to me, you learn 
acting by watching good and had acting, 

and making up your own mind. There's 
a lot of bad acting to watch in the movies. 

What do you think of the current trend 
in the movies? 

They're supposed to be getting back to 
hearts and flowers now. However, there 
is a way of doing a nude scene that is fas- 
cinating, even if it's only the back of your 
hand that's nude. It can be gorgeous, 
artistic, veiled, shadowed, or whatever 
you want to do to make the human body 
appear beautiful. 

What are some of the films you have 
been in?. 

"To Kill a Mocking Bird," "Escape 
from the Planet of the Apes," "The 
Man," and some real bombs, too. 

Areyou thinking of doing a pilot 
show on television? 

I'm thinking of it. No body else is. 

Do you think that much of the 
problem of television today is that it is 
addressed to about a fifth-grade audience? 

I suppose the problem of it is the prob- 
lem with the automobile industry. It 
is catering to the market that pays the 
price. Suppose you came out with a 
a big, safe car, guaranteed to last 
ten years, and cost SS.OnO. Would you 

buy it, or would you keep on year after 
year with the new models? Which would 
.you buy? I think the big, safe, husky car 
that lasts ten years is a good buy, but 
I'm not the market. That isn't what the 
people want. 

How do your live performances com- 
pare with working on television? 

It's like bullfighting with a bull as like 
bullfighting with a wheelbarrow. One's 
real, and one's fake. Television and 
movies are fake. There's nothing real 
about them. You can get bored with an 
audience. You can't get bored in the 

How was last ni^t's audience? 

On a scale of one to ten, if ten was 
(the top), you would receive about six. 
The thing that upset me was that I got 
more laughs out of the announcements 
than out of the show. 

Do you find the studen ts here typical 
of most college groups that you run into? 

.Yeah, same type of people exactly. 
Not that I'm trying to say everybody's the 
same. There is the quality of enthusiasm, 
interest, good manners, and accepting 
me on almost an equal level. I find that 
very intriguing. I like that. 

The Faculty Senate met Monday 
afternoon and voted that field trips, 
including Bible Conference, SA wor- 
shops, NlV workshops, trips by 
musical groups, and other similar 
activities, may not include any more 
than one day of regularly scheduled 
classes per semester. 

Exceptions to this policy may be 
made only by the Academic Affairs 
Committee. This will go into effect 
second semester, with the exception 
that band, chorale, and orchestra tnps 
already planned for second semester do 
not have to be cleared by the Academic 
Affairs Committee. 

In other business, the Senate 
approved a recommendation ot the 
dirriculum Committee that a one- 
year program in Office Administration, 
leading to a certificate, be reintroduced. 
This 32-hour program will include 
thirteen hours of Office Admimstration 
besides Freshman Composition, 
IntroducUon to Businesss, three hours 
of religion, one hour of physical 
educaflon, and seven hours of electives. 
A person completing this program may 
continue in the two-year associate 
degree program if he or she so desires

To repeat a pattern consistently over 
a large area, dye is applied to one end of

the desired pattern carved into one end, 
then pressed onto the cloth while wet. 
Direct application involves painting 
characters directly onto cloth with dye.

plans for 

coming year 

The Southern Outdoor Society 
(SOS) went on a joint backpacking 
trip last weekend with the outdoor 
club of Oakwood college, Huntsville, 
Ala , camping in a national park in 
northern Alabama. 

The SOS is also planning hikes, 
campuig trips, canoeing, horseback 
ndmg, and an all day caving trip to 
Tumolini; Ruck Caverns in Alabama. 

The Llub meeti once or twice a 
month "We try to make these 
meelmgs be of an instructional nature." 
says Rolland Crawford, vice-president 
of the SOS. Edible wild loocfs & 
mountam climbing are some of the 
topics that have been discussed. 

hi the future, the SOS. hopes to 
have d bicycle camping trip and 
classes ni wilderness survival, hiow- 
ever plans for these activities are still

as well as students, have for

Ihanges which have been made in 
Jicral Education requirements of 
Jege to obtain a degree, 
e years ago a committee was set 
' the CER. With the final report 
IconcluMve, it produced little change in 
le present structure. 

Again 111 November, 1972, the faculty, 
uilents. and administration prompted 
leFaculiy Senate to form a second com- 
ittee_ol nine members to update the pre- 
ous report. 

Tlic objectives of the committee were 
■ to prepare a statement of philosophy 
r general education, 2). to prepare and 
■sign the broad areas for the GER. and 
■to prepare and design the specific 
mses under these areas. 
It was the view of the committee to 
iw the General Education philosophy 
changed, since it coincides with what 
P'ars on pagg ^^^ ^f (|,g s|^(- catalog 
" "Statement of Objectives." 
ne broad areas recently selected by 
■"ER committee include these topics: 
piritual needs

Boals with his academic advisor, a

•■"^ program will also make a clearer 

distinction in the requirements for the 
B.S., B.A., and A.S. degrees, abolishing 
the necessity of a minor as a graduation 

Dr. Wayne VandeVere, committee 
chairman, stated, "Students have given us 
their opinions and we value them highly." 
He continued by saying, "The committee 
issues a bi-monthly report to the Facutly 
Senate, and in January, 1974, we will sub- 

mit our final report for Senate approval. 
If our program is approved, it will ■ 
receive its initiation in the 1974-75 
academic year. 

Dr. VandeVere went on to say, "There 
are many school today, according to our 
studies, that have instituted plans similar 
to this, and with much success. I feel, 
along with the other committee members, 
that this program is desperately needed 
and will be widely accepted."

There will be a bright light in the 
sky from November 1 through late 
December, but the object has already 
been identified. 

It will be the giant comet Kohoutek. 
The comet is expected to be among the 
brightest this century, according to I odd 
Ettien, president of the Barnard Astro- 
nomical Society. 

The comet will be featured at a 
public observing session October 27 
at the Jones Observatory in Chattanooga. 

Kohoutek is already zipping across the 
sky, but it is currently visible in Collegedale 
only with the use of telescopes and bi- 

The comet can be seen with the naked 
eye from November 1 as it moves slowly 
southeastward in the morning sky. 

By December, it should be south of 
the briglit star Spica, and possibly as 
bright as the North Star Polaris. It will 
grow dramatically in brightness until 
December 28, when it may be bright 
enougli to see in the daytime sky if the 
sun is blocked out by one's liand.

joint concert at SMC last year. 

When asked if the Symphony Associa- 
tion frequently picks musicians from 
this area. Dr. Ashton stated that this

look him over." A decision on the ^

Havfaiian Flagball Rules 

kwaiian Flagball is new to the SMC 
Cmural program this year and many 
. s and spectators are m doubt about 
: „f the rules of this version of flag- 

Following is a list of the official

2. During playoffs or championships, 
sudden death will be used to determini 
a winner. The first team to score will 
be declared the winner. 


1. Rules for punts are as follows: 

a. Option number 1 - The offensive 
has a play option of announcing their 
intent to punt. If they announce 
the punt then the defensive team 
may not rush; and the offensive 
team may not enter the neutral zone 
until the ball has been kicked, 
b. The officials will notify both 
teams when a team has announced 
the intent to punt. 

2. In the event of a kick-off going out- 
of bounds, the receiving team may 
put the ball in play at the point of out- 
of-bounds or the 40 yard line, which 
ever the receiving team feel is more 
advantageous. Touch back is to 20. 

1 . There may be three passes (forward 
or backward), laterals, or handoffs 
from any ^ot on the field during a 
team's possession. 

4. An incomplete pass thrown from a 
spot beyond the L.O.S. is dead from 
the spot it was thrown. 
H. Fumbles 

1 . A fumble is dead at the point the 
ball touches the ground if fumbled 
backward, or at the spot where the 
fumble occured if fumbled forward. 
The ball goes to the team who fumbled 
or dropped it, with the resulting loss 
of down. 

3. Touching the ball, whether held 

or not, with the ball hitting the ground, 
shall be interpreted as a fumble. 
This pertains to balls snapped by the 
center, kick-offs, and punted balls, 
not forward passed. 

4. When fumbled, ball belongs to the 
team which controlled it last before 
the ball touched the ground. 

5 A ball in carrier's possession 
cannot be stolen. The flag must be 
pulled to down the ball carrier. 

1. No player may particpate in flag 
football without shoes, (barefoot} 

2. No cleated shoes are allowed 
except soccer style football shoes with 
soft rubber cleats.

4. The ball carriers must run to avoid 
"tacklers". Deliberate charging of an

not willful "charging". 

5. Ball carrier cannot use a "stiff- 
arm" or ward off the defender.

where the "tackier" pulled out one of 
the flags. (Unnecessary roughness by 
the tackier or elbowing by the runner 
isa 15 yard penalty.) In the event of 
a flag dropping without being pulled 

by a tackier, the runner is now down until 
a defender touches him.

12. The defensive team must be 5 or 
more yards behind the line of scrimmage 
until the ball is snapped, except that 
when the ball is inside the 10 yard line, 
they shall be half the distance to the 
goal line from the scrimmage line.

'Pineapple Flagball' kicked off 

Some corrections need to be made 
iTom last week's sports section. In 
men's slow pitch play ZoUineer beat 
Davis 8-7 instead of the other way 
aroimd as was printed in last week s 
issue. This would make Zollinger 7-5 
and Davis 2-9 in the final won-Ioss 
standings. Wiehn ended the men's 
slow pitch season last week as they 
defeated the All-Stars. 

Tlie women's softball season ended 
last week as Casil defeated the Academy 
team by the score of 16-1 1 to give Casil _ 
the title. Casil will now play the women s 
.Ml-Star team to end the season. 

Tlie teams for Hawaiian football 
were chosen last week. There are two 
leagues (National and Americaq), with 
SIX teams in each league. The teams 
will only play in their respective 
leagues, the first game of the season 
found two National League teams, 
Hellgren and Peden, battle to a 34-26 
victory in favor of Hellgren. This 
game was played on October 18th. In 
tlie game Morgan Hellgren scored 1 8 
points and Brooks Burnsed scored 13 
points for the winners while Wes 
Holland and John Nafie were the 
-leading scorers for the losers with 1 2 and 
8 points respectively. 

On Oct. 21 die National League game 
between Burnham and Reilly ended up 
in a decisive victory for Burnham's 
team. John Maretich (Burnham's co- 
captain and quarterback) connected on 
six touchdown passes to five different 
receivers in the 39-19 routing of Reilly. 
High scorer for the game was Tom 
(Tweeter) Davidson with 1 3 points for 
the winning team. In tht American 
League Hayes defeated Landess by 
the score of 34-1 2. The line score was 
not turned in so the results of this 
game will be run in next week's 

On Oct. 22 in the National Leaeue 
Peden dumped Reilly with a score of 
32-18. Wes Holland led the scoring with 
1 2 points with John Nafie pulling in 
8 points, both for Peden's team. 

In other campus sports action the

Road rally slated 
for Sunday 

I Tp-jme that have driven in 

Delta Phi, the 

„ club, and Central 

Camera will sponsor a road rally 
Sunday Afternoon on local roads 
and highways. 

According to Gary Kinne 
and Geny Mobley, organizers of 
the event, the rally is open to 
participation by SMC students, 
faculty, and staff, as well as Co- 
legedide area residents. 

Proper timing, rather than raw 
speed, will be the most important 
factor. Participants will leave at 
one-minute intervals from a 
parking lot, and their progress 
will be logged at several check- 
points along a prescribed route. 
State and local traffic laws must 
be obeyed at all times. 

Each participating team will 
consist of a driver, a navigator, and 
no other persons may 
with them. Motor- 
: be permitted in the 

their vehicle 

Teams that have driven i 
three or fewer rallys will be 
entered in the "novice" class, 
while the more experienced 
contenders will be classified as 
"rallyists." Trophies wiU be 
awarded in each class. 

Mobley said in a recent interveiw 
that the navigator is a key element 
in a team. He should have a bent 
towards math, and the tools that 
will enable him to keep constant 
track of the average speed of his 
vehicle so far on the run. Use of a 
stopwatch is recommended, as weu 
as a slide rule or electronic calculator 
(One note about calculators: 
in the bright afternoon sun, the 
small red "LED" readouts may be 
difficult to see.) 

Participants should allow 
plenty of fuel for the rally, 
which wUl extend about 90 mUes 
and will take about two and one-hall 
hours to complete. 

Teams wishing to sign up may 

sheets to be posted on 

bulletin boards in the dormitories 
and Lynn Wood HaU. Mobley 
recommends that particpants that 
sign up early, as information will 
be distributed to teams before the 
event. A nominal fee for entry wiU 
be charged. by John Beckett 

Bill Shelly, religious vice 
president at SMC, believes that 
the timing was ideal for the 1973 
Bible Conference held at Indian 
Creek Youth Camp. He said 
that since it was held just after 
mid-term tests, that it gave the 
students a chance to really relax 
and enjoy the conference. 

The conference was held 
Oct. 25-27, with approximately 
125 SMC students, and 100 
Oakwood College students in 
attendance. Shelly said that there 
existed a warm feeling between the 
two schools. The conference 
presented a unique combination 
of the Christian s physical and 
spiritual life. Dr. Agatha Thrash, 
and Eld. H.M.S. Richards. Sr., 

It has been expressed by some 
students, that although Dr. Thrash 
at times had the students sitting 
uneasy, she did give them some- 
thing to think about. At the 
Thursday and Friday meetings, 
she presented many facts and 
ideas about health and dress 
reform, and really got into the 
"how's and why's" of these subjects, 
reports Shelly. 

The Jubilates sang and there 
was plenty of Oakwood music 
to keep thmgs moving. Tlie students 
were impressed by the "relating 
ability" of Eld. Richards. He spoke 
mostly of his personal experiences 
and held an interesting question 
and answer period on Sabbath 

The weekend concluded with 
a commitment

The registration documents

Steps are currently under way 
oy the city of CoUegedale to take 
over the sewage disposal facility 
from the coUege and improve it, 
pending the receiving of a federal 
grant, according to Colleged^e 
City Manager D.E. Keller. 

Mr. KeUer pointed out that the 
present facility does not meet 
federal standards, and the college 
cannot afford to re-buUd it to meet 
the standards. After the facility 
is brought up to the standards, 
McKee bakery and local residences

with the coUege. 

He also said that to totaUy 
complete the project (running 
the sewer lines, etc.) would probably 
itake about 10 years. 
* Sewage disposal in Collegedale 
!is a problem in some areas. Mr. 
Keller said that there are some 
Instances whtire present septic

Collegedale Distributers, m 
revamping it's Eastern United 
States health food service, has 
dropped the Forida warehouse, 
and is building a new enlarged 
warehouse in the Collegedale 

"Our new warehouse should 
tmished and in use by December, 
stated Don Glass, general manager of 
Collegedale Distributers. Construct- 
ion delays have delayed completion 
of the warehouse, but at this time 
* " building is progressing steadily. 

The facility at the 1-75 in- 
terchange in Ooltewah along the 
mtcrstate will more than double the 
13,000 sq. ft. floor space of the 
present warehouse in the College 

"The Committee of 100, a 
eioup of SDA businessmen con- 
cerned with developing SMC, 
mil own the $200,000 ware-house 
and will lease the building to 
Collegedale Distributors, said 
Charles Fleming Jr., geneml 
manager of finance and develop- 
ment at SMC. 

There are two primary reasons 
1 'or the erection of the warehouse, 

according to Mr. Glass. First, 
the inadequate space of the 
Florida warehouse made it im- 
possible to stock a wide variety ot 
health foods. Second, overhead 
will be reduced with one central 
warehouse, and the shipment system 
will go through one office at 
Collegedale instead of duplicating 
inventory and shipping crews at 
both Forest City and Collegedale. 

Also, expansion of services 
necessiatated the building of 
warehouse to hold increased 
inventory. PresenUy, Collegedale 
Distributers ships its good trom 
Miami to Detroit, and from 
Baltimore to Chicago; and they 
are aiming for greater service 
within these areas. 

Collegedale Distributers, as a 
business dosely allied to the college, 
funds the coUege directly from 
ts near $100,000 yearly profits and 
indirectly througli student labor.

uos e.xecutive rice president of the SA. He is now em- 
ployed as assistant manager of the Adventist Book 
Center in Orlando, Florida. 

At the invitation of the editorial staff, I share some 
impressions of my first Alumni Weekend. 

As dawn filled the Georgia hills on my saga north, the 
trees and rolling terrain so foreign to Florida assured me that 
1 would be happy to see the same old place again. I wasn't 
disappointed. Dton't kid yourself; SMC is a good place to 
be and a great place to come back to. To be a student is 
to be a member of a privileged segment of society, but 
many appreciate it too late. 

I decided Friday was to be a day of exploring the 
changes in people and places. 1 found Hallock busy 
for once, but editors have always been that way. Litch 
is not the ball of fire he once was, but SA presidents are 
always a little more reserved. Persons have changed, but 
people are the same. 

There are many new faces, but that's not anything new, 
either. And the whispered queiy, "Is she dating anyone 
in particular?" stOI seems as American as strawberry milk- 
shakes in the C.K. 

Buildings are new, but there are always new buildings 
at SMC. The students center is a boon \o student comfort 
and unity. It is a much needed addition. Long live the 
Student Center, even with its seemingly omniscient, 
omnipotent, and omnipresent monitors. A new building, 
but the same system. 

Friday night proved to be a genuine revelation. "Whosit's" 
theory was once and forever proved wrong. The seats are 
just as hard now during die prolonged meeting as the>. 
were when it was "their alumni weekend." I guess I do 
have more patience, for training has had its effects. 
Was that Pavlov's idea? Skinner's? Probably Knittel's. 
Ask Mr. Lamb. 

My first Alumni Association meeting was a nearly 
traumatic experience. As a student I had always regarded 
the alumni as a "they " group. Then, as if to put me down, 
reality came around, and I was forced to admit that I am 
hopelessly trapped on the one-way time tram-downhill since 
birth. Death begins to set in with the first breath. The 
alumni' have not changed, but 1 am now painfully aware 
of our common disease. I'm not about to give up, for I am 
still young, but time is inevitable. 

It was not all depressing, though. I was rejuvenated by 
the challenge of point and counter point 1 remember so 
well from one short year ago. A college campus is always 
vibrating with the song of thought, even if no action is 
forthcoming. 1 heard new songs being sung, with the same 
old vigor, and the old songs have been re-leased with a 
persistence known only to students. (And lemmings. I 
give 100 per cent moral support to the seemin^y lost cause 
of "education" versus "students'-even though both 
sides are losing!) 

One old melody heard once again in the Senate is to 
steer the annual in new directions. Though the annual has 
been dormant or ages, each year a call is sounded for its 
phoenix to come forth reincarnated. Why not ask Marshall 
McCluen to join the revision committee? A work of art 
would be a refreshing change. 

Distilling the impressions upon my first return leaves a 
residue of paradox and enlightenment. It seems as if 
everything is new, but its stUI the same institution 
Change is status quo. Faces and facilities are always 
chan^g; but the purposes of the institution and roles of 
mdividuals are constant. SMC is a function through which 
people are processed. Students pick their course, but only 
a precious few pioneer their own paths. 

• Tlie institution is producing the same play, but it's lust 

the next act on stage as I return from intermission. The 
castmg has had quite a turnover and the costumes are 
rm,!f;K"U' r,™' ""' ' ■'"'" '^''^Sed more than SMC. 
It must be that I am an actor, too, and by sitting in the box 
office seats wi h the alumni, I see my former role played 

, \^*'7u,^'^""?"^ ^'^''""<' ^ ^"n «*" to v'^ew your 
lost youth? Nostalgia is fun, but it is fattening. WhaT S 
It take to show that "alu.nni" is but anotherrole Te we 
anything more than roles? Who's watching us play o,^ pLts' 

And by the way, does God judge the actor or the^t 
you or your function? And what is the difference

Men's Club 

Dear Editor, 

Tlierc is a situation on our campus 
that lias become a grievance to a few of 
us. In the past, the SA Recreation Com- 
mittee has been responsible for the or- 
ganization and sponsorship of many 
sports tournaments throughout the 
school year. It has been generally rec- 
ognized each of us was permitted to 
enter any or all of these tournaments. 

During the past two years, there 
has been a trend for the Recreation 
Committee to dack off in the tourna- 
ment activities and concentrate on the 
intramural program. This slack has been 
taken up by the dormitory men's club 
each year until this year all the tourna- 
ments that have been run so far have 
been under the men's club jurisdiction. 
Now, there is nothing inherently wrong 
with the men's club sponsoring as many 
tournaments as they wish. The problem 
begins when the SA gives over aU tourna- 
ments to the men's club, as has apparent- 
ly happened. This means that anyone 
who lives in the village and is married 
is excluded from these tournaments 
unless he has paid men's club dues. 

Believe me, Mr. Editor, there are 
some good athletes who reside in the 
village who could and would add to the 
quality of competition in the tourna- 
ments if they were allowed to partici- 

There is a principle involved here, 
Mr. Editor, in that since we mairied 
village students have paid our SA dues 

?"?';»"''''»™':h as anyone el,,, 
•mcc this IS a recognized lunctin.'?* 
the Recreation Committee w "' 
being cheated. A rip-off i„' ji'^.^^ 
if you please. I m sure it is v 
for the Recreation Committee^"*

but is this really fair to eve JS>|

again for the same thing' *°» 

lliave two possible solutions In 
suggest. One is an easy was out ° 
the other would put tlie boe m'Ci i

1. Have the SA pay men's cl„i, .. ■ 

for all married village students vLsh.* 
participate in these tournamS^ ' 
thus making them eligible ■ 

2. Let those in the SA resnonriu 

the initiative once more, and start 
sponsoring, or at least co-sponsor „, 
tournament activities once aeain *' ■ 
In closing, let mc state that lamtal

village students, and that we are"™ • 
cerned that this situation be cotrecltd I

Thank you,

No contact impossible 

I feci compeition is necessary in 
sports of all kinds, and can prove 
very beneficial if properly controlled. 
But then, isn't competition in 
the classroom fierce to get the top 
'""'*"' — perhaps between dcpaii- 

Dear Editor: 

I agree with Dr. Campbell 
that the "no-contact sport" 
10-24-73) could have some far- 
reaching affects on the intramural 
program at SMC. It could 
cause the program to whither and 
die, or maybe to change a few 
other rules due to existing contact 
Would this mean no more jump 
balls or screening in basketball? 
No sliding or barreling into a 
catcher blocking the plate in 
Softball? Or no blocking a spike 
in volleyball (due to possible 
contact throu^ the net)? 

There is no way you can 
possibly omit all contact in foot- 
ball, flagball, keepaway or which- 
ever other term you prefer. 
The same is true of basketbaU. 
Whether taping for a pass, 
battling for a rebound, diving 
for a flag or scrambling for a 
loose ball, contact will occur. 

At times, it is difficult to 
maintain a christian spirit, 
but no more difficult than 
when confronted with an 
unsympathetic dean, or a 
two-faced teacher. 

Don't misunderstand me. i 
am not condemming Hawaiian 
flagball. 1 think its an excellent 
ADDITION to the intramural 

program. 1 don't think it should ,,^^,j^n ^^ ,u„ .u. .n^vut 

have SUBSTITUTED for traditional welKfor only 4 5 SI 

week, while the majority ol llie 

ments for any available funds 

I would be more than happy 
to see equal coverage of women' 
activitcs in the SOUTHERN ACCENT, ] 
provided the intramural interest wa 
equal. The men's club has done 
an outstanding job of providing a 
variety of activities to suit one's 
particular taste. Currently four 
activities are running simuUan- 
eoulsy. Not that the ladies of 
Thatcher and Jones aren't pro- 
viding suitable activities for them- 
selves, but how many of our wonei 
here want to be known as a campus 

True, some sports offer more 
"carry-over value" than others, Of 
all 14 listed, I noticed 1 2 were 
primarily individual activities. 
Is this significant? How may one 
develope teamwork througli 
individual activities. And there is 
certainly more physical exercise 
developed througli flagball or 
basketball than through ping- 
pong, archery, and bowling? 
1 feel it should be pointed 
out that the "rough, contact" 
sports such as basketball and 
flagball are run for maybe 

Four Pages? 


size o/ previous issues this year A 
word of explanation is in order to 
our readers for this change 
AcceT'."i ',"■'"" ''""e hit the

It is not difficult to see the 
"pugilistic nature" of a few 
individuals who fancy themselves 
as an amateur Ray Nitschke or 
Dick Butkis, but to condemn the 
entire intramural program as

Flagball can be rugged at times,

Sabbath School 

Dear Editor, 

I, for one, am pleased with the 
new babbath School arrangement 
on our campus. The smaller groups 
allow for greater variety a more 
personal approach, and more par- 
ticipation. I feel more involved. 

My only regret is that more 

students don't take advantage of JM 
Sabbath School programs. There s 
no tuition charge for this class, ana 
it offers a blessing that will really 
help make Sabbath a special day. 
Try it. You'll like it!

Folk singers 
to perform 
Sat. night 

October 3 1 , 1 973 The Southern Accent 

Folk singers Steve Addiss and 
Bill Crofut will appear at SMC 
Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. in 
the physical education center. 

They sing the music of all ages 
and continents, and a single concert 

include elements of jazz, 
classical, foreign, and folk music. 
Their approach to music is 
nparalleled, "Music is not a 
niversal language," they say. 
It has to be learned country by 
country so as to reflect the unique 
pecial quality of those people 
it belongs to." 

They will present music from 
„ .epertoire that includes songs in 
32 languages and will play a wide 
variety of instruments-five string 
banjo, six and twelve string 
guitars, French horn, flutes of 
various sorts, harpsichord, piano, 
Asi.'.n tranh, and an African thumb 

Addis and Crofut have been 
sent on four "Cultural Exchange" 
world tours. They have visited 
Asia, Africa, Europe, and India. 

They have also given command 
performances at the White House 
and the United Nations, and have 
been awarded a Presidential 
Citation for their contribution 
toward "mutual understanding 
between the people of the United 
States and the people of friendly 
nations abroad." 

Addis majored in music under 
Walter Piston at Harvard. After 
graduate study in New York with 

John Cage, he became a composer 
a teacher and a vvritcr for Musical 
America Magazine. 

He is presently working on a 
Ph.D. m Japanese studies at the 
University of Michigan in Ann 
Arbor, fitting his studies into a 
busy concert schedule. 

After studing French horn on 
scholarship in England, Crofut 
returned to America to major in 
music at Allegheny College, Mead- 
ville. Pa. It was there that a concert 
by Pete Seeger attracted him to the 

After college he was drafted 
and served in Korea where he 
entertained troops on a homemade 
banjo. When he got out of the army, 
he organized adult music recreation 
programs all over Japan at the 
request and invitation of Japan's 
Prince Mikasa. 

As a result of his success there 
he won a U.S. State Department 
Cultrual Affairs grant to tour 
Southeast Asia. Addis joined him 
In Hong Kong and their partnership 

Addiss and Crofut were warned 
that their performance was too 
unusual to be successful. They tried 
it anyway and have been getting 
rave reviews ever since. 

They still resist writing a program, 
wanting the freedom to keep 
changing and responding to what 
moves them at the time.

The third regular meeting 
of the Student Association 
Senate was held Monday night. 
Chuck Luster, off-campus 
temperance directar, had the 
devotional for the evening. 

Then, Duane Hallock, editor 
presented a request for Increase 
in the ACCENT'S budget. 
He cited an increase in the cost 
paper, and the fact the ACCENT is 
publishing eight-page issues this 
year. This is being done on an 
SA budget cost for four pages. 
The ACCENT hopes to increase 
its advertising and raise other 
funds to cover the extra costs. 
Senator Clark moved to giant 
the ACCENT $600. The 
motion was carried. 

Following that motion, 
Harry Haugen, editor of the 
addressed the Senate regarding 

the purchase of new dark room 
equipment. He estimated that 
thecost would be $1550. After 
much discussion and questioning, 
the Senate decided to consider 
the issue later before making 
a decision. 

Mr. Ken Spears, dean of 
students, visited the Senate 
and spoke of TV censorship. 
He pointed out that there is 
discussion in process regarding 
the consistency of programming 
in the dorms and student center. 

Senators Burnside, Dark, 
Bradley, andMcLarty presented 
the pros and cons of the 
fetiibility of a traditional SA 
project. It was pointed out, 
and agreed upon, that some- 
thing which would affect 
all students would be a worth- 
while project. Several 
possibilities were mentioned. 
Among them, Nicaragua, needy- 

student fund, and others. 

A committee is being set up 
to present tlie Senate with 
several possibilities and cost of 
projects. Senator Haskell 
Williams is chairman. 

The meeting adjourned at 
9:06 p.m.

Halloween party tonight 

with the campus men's and 
women's clubs to take place 
tonight, Halloween night, m the 
Student Center. 

According to Tim Thomas, 
SA social vice-president, the party 
will be a casual "Come and Go" 
affair that will be in progrecs 
continuously from 7:30 to 10:30 
p.m. He stated that the party is 
being conducted in tliis manner 

because most students are too 
busy with study to spend an 
entire evening at a highly struct- 
ured party on a week-night. 

E.O. Grundset, social 
committee sponsor, promises 
musical entertainment and maybe 
even a few "Ghostly" cartoons in 
keeping with the chilling spirit 
of Halloween. Traditional 
refreshments of hot chocolate, 
cider, and donuts will be served 
and a fun time Is promised for

I.D. card privileges 
cause confusion 

IJome discussion has arisen this year 
the limitation of usage of the 
student identification card. For the 
benefit of those who are attending 
SMC for the first time, a brief 
explanation of the background of 
this situation is warranted. 

Last year, students were issued 
either a wliite or blue I.D. card. 
Students holding white I.D. cards 
were eligible to charge purchases at 
the College Plaza, in addition to 
cafeteria meals. The differentiation 
°f color simply signified that owners 
of the wliite cards had received the 
approval of their financial sponsors 
to have purchases placed on their 

This year has seen the elimination 
™ this policy, and many of the students 
ate wondering why. (Incidentally, the 
me cards this year command the 
'Repurchasing power as the white 
"ties, and were issued because of a 
shottage of white plastic cards.) 

The removal of this system is the 
result of several reasons of debatable 
™portance. Many felt this was done 
induce them to eat in the new cafe- 
'"la.not only helping to defray the 
wstot the new building, but also to 
J°* *c workers to know approxima- 
J' ""w many students to prepare

Students this year are finding it 
rather difficult in securing necessary 
items, in addition to food, with the 
allotedSlO.OOC.K. Book. Students 
may secure additional books with the 
consent of their parents, however. 

Why not screen the students who 
abuse this privilege, instead of 
penalizing everyone for the actions 
of a few? Toward the latter part of 
last year, two methods were tried. 
First of all, a list of students who 
were keeping their accounts paid 
was issued to the College Plaza mer- 
chants. Then students were required 
to have the number of the respective 
month punched on their I.D. card. 

Neither of these methods proved 
satisfactory. According to Mrs. 
Laurel Wells, director of student 
finance, "This helped, but it didn t 
remove all the problems." When asked 
about the system last year, and the 
reason for the change this year, Mrs._ 
Wells replied, "Students who couldn t 
afford charges, were the ones that 
misused the privilege. Some stu- 
dents that were almost entirely 
dependent on financial aid would go 
and charge items such as stereos and 
tape recorders, running up enormous 
debts. , , , 

"Even though these students had 
their parent's permission, many times 
parents refused to pay these out- 
ragious bUls. It was absolutely too 
haTd to collect. We still have some out- 
standing accounts from last year. It 
wasn't the majority, but the minority 
that refused to pay. 

"With the new students this year, 
vou don't know who is responsible 
and who isn't." Mrs. Wells went on to 
emphatically state, "You absolutely 
would not believe the problems created 
by this sytem." 

Brant Lewis Bartlett and his wife, 
Faye Grove Bartlett, were killed early 
Friday morning in a one-car crash on 
1-75 at Shallowford Road. The 1961 
Volkswagen they were driving left the 
road shortly after midnight and smashed 
head on into a concrete bridge support. 

Both were students at SMC. Brant 
was a junior religion major, and Faye 
was an associate degree senior in office 
administration. The couple was married 
last summer, and had been living in the 
Alabama Apartments on Camp Road in 

The impact of the crash mashed the 
front of the car back to the windshield 
and crumpled the top. 

Brant was born in Indonesia, where 
his parents are now serving as mission- 
aries. He is survived by both parents, 
two brothers, and a sister. 

Faye was a native of Jefferson County, 
W. V. She is survived by both her 

The bodies were taken to Martinsburg, 
W.V., where they will be buried later 
this week. 

Chattanooga patrolman Charles Buck, 
who investigated the accident, said both 
were apparently killed instantly. The 
Hamilton County Rescue Squad worked 
for 10 minutes before freeing the couple 
from the twisted wreckage. Both were 
pronounced dead on arrival at Erianger 

A special memorial service for Brant 
and Faye Bartlett will be conducted 
Thursday morningat 11:00a.m. in the 
church sanctuary. Tliis service, which 
will take the place of chapel, will be 
-presented by Elder Des Cummings. Jr.

Approximately 40 sophomore 
nursing students will visit Southern 
Missionary College's extension campus 
in Orlando, Fla., this weekend. 

The student nurses will leave 
Collegedale at 2:00 p.m. Thursday 
and will arrive in Orlando about mid- 

Friday they will tour all the 
facilities of the hospital, getting a 
preview of what to expect when they 
are students on the Orlando campus 
next year. Friday night they will 
participate in singing bands for the 
hospital patients. 

The schedule for Sabbath includes 
the regular morning services, dinner, 
and an afternoon activity. 

The junior class has planned a 
special program for Saturday night 
which according to rumor, will be

Capt. Ronne to bring 
South Pole to SMC 

Captain Finn Ronne wdl present 
"High Adventures in Exploration" tlus 
Saturday at 8:00 p.m. in the physical 
education center. 

The film is a record of human 
exploits from the golden age of polar 
exploration to the development ol air- 
craft that hastened man's conquest ot 
earth's last frontiers. 

Adventure seems to run in the 
Ronne family. Finne Ronne s father 
was a member of the Capt. Raold 
Amundsen expedition that reached the 
south pole in 1911. 

Capt. Ronne's career in polar 
exploration began in 1933 when he 

went to Antarctica as a ski-expert, 
dog-driver, and trail operator. 

This Norweigan-born, American- 
naturalized citizen has accomphshed 
things no explorer before him had 
ever dreamed of-and in the process 
he as earned the gratitude of the U.S. 
government which has awarded him 
three Congressional Medal for polar 
exploration and science. 

Besides being a world famous 
explorer and geographer, he is also 
an author and lecturer.

Why things 
don't qet done 

Approximately 175 students convened in the 
Student Center Wednesday night for a Halloween 
party. Now. that's a pretty good turnout for a 
party that didn't happen. Many students were 
disappointed that their entertainment had fallen 

On the surface, it appears that the mentioning 
of this social event sparked much interest from the 
students. But behind the scenes, things take on a 
different hue. 

A couple of weeks before the time scheduled for 
the party, plans were being formulated for the evening. 
But the final plans were to be made by a planning 
committee of students. 

Only one student showed up for the committee 
meeting. So, due to a seeming lack of interest, 
the party was cancelled. (Unfortunately, the 
Accent published the story without a knowledge 
of this cancellation.) 

In analyzing the situation, there is obviously an 
imbalance of a healthful equilibrium, which seems 
to have permeated most student activities or 

It appears that the majority of students want 
things done for them, but they are reluctant to do 
them. One hundred seventy-five students showed up 
to enjoy a party. One student showed up to plan 
the party. 

Perhaps the cited case is not the best exemplification 
of the point at hand because everyone was invited to 
the party, and not everyone was invited to the 
committee meeting. However, the fact still remains 
that it is difficult to find students willing to accept 
the authority and responsibility necessary to get 
things done. 

Let's focus m on the Student Association itself. 
Hie sole purpose of the SA is to improve student life 
on campus. The college could function without a 
SA, but students are better off because there is an 
association of the students. 

Tlie SA is not merely the officers elected by the 
student body last spring. The SA is made up of the 
students, and the dected officas are merely those 
chosen to represent the students in various prescribed 

Don't expect things to be done unless enough 
people are interested in helping get them done. The 
real fulfiUment comes, not in having things done for 
you, but in participating in helping get the thmgs 
done. Don't complain about not having things done 
for you unless you have honesUy attempted to 
involve yourself with the various forms of gettins 
things done. *

those were the days . . , 



, .". 

Once upon a time, a long time 
ago, a certain feudal estate existed in 
a peaceful, little valley. 

The center, of this estate was 
commonly referred to as Thgirw 
Castle. One couldn't miss the structure 
for it was well illuminated at night. 

Humble serfs existed in their 
small abodes on either side of the 
castle. The serfs were allowed to 
wander around on the estate grounds 
during the day, but at precisely 
10:30 every night, they were locked 
into their dungeons to protect them 
from barbarian enemies on the 
opposite sides of the stone walls. 

Each night the serfs were required 
to file into a small cubicle and 
listen to designated nobility tell them 
how great it was to live in a feudal 
system, and conform to the rules 
of their small society. 

These pep-talks echoed off the 
walls for fifteen minutes or so, 
and then the serfs were allowed to 
go back to their respective cells 
to ponder the system. 

The serfs, for the most part, did 
not give much thouglit to attending 
these required nightly meetings. 
But as long as the estate had been 
under this type of rule, there had 
always been heretics who resented 
the coercion of the nobility to attend 
these sessions. 

Some of the nobility, however, 
considered it a very serious offense 
to miss more than a certain number of 
these lectures. A "lecture-skipper" 
was considered a criminal. The 
letters "LS" were even branded upon 
his chest, to follow him through his 
life and remind others that he was 
someone to keep on eye on. 

Those who failed to bodily attend 
a certain quota of these nightly 
talks were severely dealt with. The 
dukes who patrolled the serfs's 
residences were very well versed in 
the letter of the law as recorded in 
the Scrolls of Conduct. The more 
serious offenders were issued Parch- 
ment of Warning, which meant that 
they were suspected of not confirmin|| 
to the system. With the Parchments 
also came threats of being ostracized 
from the peaceful valley. 

It even seemed that those who 
were so concerned about the atten- 
dance of these meetings tended to 
neglect the other facets of the lives 
of the serfs. The important thing 
to thein was whether they were 
present each evening. 

One era of the history of the eslale I 
will be remembered in infamy. This [ 
was a time of defiance on the pari of I 
the serfs. Due to no adequate reasons,! 
they began absenting themselves 
from the nightly sessions. And, in 
I this notorious era of time, many more | 
than the usual Parchments were sent 
out. Now, this began to worry some 
of the nobility. You see. the supply 
of sheep in the fold began to dwindle I 
(Sheep skin, as everyone knows, is 
what parchment is made of.) 

The situation worsened, and it was I 
evident that a real crisis was on hand. [ 

But it looks like this story will 
have to be cut short -worship is 
over, and the R.A. is waiting to 
collect the computer attendance

jw uniforms 
ordered for 


A.D. Nursing students will soon 
be wearing "a distinctive and 
completely new uniform," according 
to Mrs. Lenna Lee Davidson, instructor 
in nursing at SMC. 

From the present green uniform, 
the change will be to a differently 
styled blue uniform. The medium 
blue and white feather-stripe dresses 
for the women will be line-styled 
with navy blue collars and will have 
a detachable white panel, bordered 
in navy blue on the front. 

The hats for the students will re- 
main the same. The first-year students 
have white hats and second-year 
students have white hats with a black 
velvet stripe on the left side. 

The men's uniforms consist of 
white slacks and medium blue and 
white feather-stripe tunics with navy 
blue collars. Second year male 
students have a black stripe under the 
insignia on the left sleeve of the tunic. 

Until arrival of the new uniforms, 
the first -year A.D. students will 
continue to wear white uniforms 
to laboratory periods, while the 
second-year students will wear their 
green uniforms for the rest of the 

Next year all A.D. Nursing 
students will wear the blue and white 
uniforms. The change is necessary 
because the green material is no longer 
available for new uniforms.

The Modern Languages Depart- 
ment of SMC, in conjunction with all 
German classes in the Collegedale 
school system, is sponsoring a 22-day 
tour, open to anyone, to Germany and 
the immediately surrounding area next 
spring. Tentative plans are for the 
group to depart from New York City 
on May 15,1 974, and return the 
first week of June. 

The price of last year's trip to Ger- 
many was $651 per person. However, 
due to inflation, an increase of 
approximately fifteen per cent is 
expected. The fee includes the flight 
to and from Germany, transportation, 
hotel, entrance fees, and one meal a 
day. In addition, the return flight 
ticket is good for 45 days which makes 
it possible for the individual to spend 
a few extra weeks overseas on his 
own if he wishes to. 

According to Dr. Rudolf Aussner, 
associate professor of modern language, 
a bus with a capacity of 45 persons has 
been hired for the tour. If the group 
becomes too large another bus will be 
acquired. Also, transportation from 
Collegedale to New York will be 
available for those who need it. 
The price for this service was $22.12 
last year, but again, some increase 
can be expected. 

The tour group will begin in West 
Germany, staying over the first Sab- 
bath at Seminar Marienhohe, an 
Adventist college in Darmstadt. 
From there they will swing south, 
stopping at several high points in 
France, Switzerland, and Austria. 

The second Sabbath will be spent 
at Seminar Bogenhofen in Austria, 
another SDA insitution, before the 
tourists head back througli West 
Germany to East Germany in time for 
the third weekend at Friedensau 
near Magdeburg. Some time will be 
spent in Berlin before returning to 
Colognes for the flight to the home 

The group will spend about four 
days behind the Iron Curtain, where 
they will see many sites of historic 
interest, such as Wittenberg, where 
Martin Luther exposed his Ninety- 
five Theses. But perhaps more 
important will be the opportunity 
for the students to compare the free- 
dom of the East Germans to that of 

Tliose who are eligible can receive 
three hours of college credit, appli- 
cable to upper or lower division 
major, minor, or electives. It is 
hoped that the tour will encourage 
foreign study and also acquaint the 
tourist with the habits and cultures 
of other nations. Dr. Aussner will 
be available to answer any questions 
concerning the tour, ^y Sandy Lies 

Bob May 



at SMC 

The Behavioral Science Department 
has acquired a new personality this 
semester, Mr. Bob May, instructor of 
psychology, who is currently teacliing 
three classes; general psychology, 
developmental psychology, and general 

Teaching is a new experience for 
Mr. May. He says, "I didn't realize 
that teaching would be so exhausting, 
but sometimes at the end of the day-l 
am shot! Also getting to know the 
students is hard; the ones that speak 
up in class-it's easier to remember 
their names. But the quiet ones? I 
feel for them; they should say some- 

The college scene , still very 
recent, is fresh in Mr. May's mind and 
he recommends that freshmen "sit 
down and figure out what is important 
in their life-evaluate themselves. 
Discover who they are; that's probably 
the key thing." 

For college experience to be 
valuable, he says, "you've got to 
become a believer-you've got to know 
what you want and how to get it. 
3ut it does take time to set your values. 
It is so good to mature." 

Mr. May likes the location of SMC, 
"The air is ftesh, no smog like Los 
Angeles. In some respects I like SMC 
since it is away from the big city, but 
it misses the cultural aspects of the 
bigger cities. 1 do notice, however, 
that the spiritual atmosphere is 
more pervasive." But there's one 
thing that he says he must adjust to, 
"There's a cultural difference here- 
the pace is slower." 

Presently Mr. May, who is single, 
is living in Talge Hall, where he can 
be "closer to people, activities, and 
to my office." 

Mr. May received his B.S. degree in 
psychology from La Sierra College, 
La Sierra, Calif., in 1972. He is 
continuing his graduate work for a 
M.A. degree in school psychology, 
also from La Sierra. "Eventually 1 
hope to get a Ph.D.," says May.

A common complaint of students 
this year is that tliey are frequently 
inconvenienced by the inability to buy 

ugh food with annoying C.K. 
books or their limited casli supply in 
order to cut down on cafeteria 
charges above the S40.00 minimum. 

Last year, during the second sem- 
ester, the Village Market received 
S3,753 per week in student sales revenue 
on an average weekly basis. During the 
first part of this semester, student 
sales have averaged approximately 
SI.IOO per week. This is a consider- 
able reduction of almost 70%. 

Wlien Mr. CUff Myers, manager of 
the Village Market, was questioned 
r.bout this situation, he replied, 
•Working here at the store, I approve 
of the system used last year, where 
students were allowed to buy more 
merchandise from the market. But 
working as part of the college, I 
understand their viewpoint, and am 
willing to cooperate with them. 

"Being the manager of the store, 
1 naturally am concerned with in- 
creasing sales, but I must back up 
and see the goal for which we are 
both striving, that of providing a 
Christian education for any students 

dosser and Bacheller 
place first in road rally 

"5....4....3....2....I " was the sound 
being heard as each car took it's place 
in the road rally held last Sunday, in 
which Bruce Closser and Bruce 
Bacheller were first-place winners. 
Ken Fuller and Greg Martin placed second. 
Eight cars participated in the rally 
with each car containing a driver and 
a navigator. 

The rally, which started in back 
of the gymnasium, consisted of a 
total of eighty -seven miles to be 
traveled, which the contestants 
weren't aware of before starting the 

Tlie rally encompassed territory as 
far north as Cleveland, Tenn., and as 
far south as Ringold, Ga., with the 
average speed of 37 mph the traveling 
time would have taken 2 hours and 
21 minutes. 

The rally this year was different from 

the previous ones in the fact that there 
were no manned check-points, and 
the drivers used their own instructions. 
Each car was given a sheet of questions 
that had to be answered by going to 
the specified points. 

If the questions were answered 
wrong points were added. Also, 
points were added if late or early and 
if the mileage was short or long. 
Tlie car with the fewest points was the 
final winner. 

Greg Keeney, Gary Keeney, and 
Steve Snowder were responsible for 
charting the route. The road rally 
was sponsored by Men's Club, Southern 
Missionary College, McKee Bakery, 
Computer Spectrum, and Central 
Camera Repair. 

Trophies will be given to the first, 
second, place for navigators and drivers.

lome economics dept. 
inducts nursery school 
for preschoolers 

November 7, 1973 The Southe 

The Home Economics Department is 
inducting a nursery school for children 
,„ee and four years of age from 9:00 to 
'2:00 Monday and Thursday mornings in 
jummerour Hall. 
Though the nursery serves as a lab- 
atory where the "Understanding Young 
lildten" class may observe pre-schoolers 
St hand, students do not actually work 
th the children; rather, the nursery is 
ipeivised by Mrs. Norman Peek and 
her assistant, Anita Norrell, a freshman 
from Pell City, Ala. 

This year's nursery involves 1 5 
children of varying backgrounds who 
live in the Collegedale community. 
Though the nursery is not advertised 
except by word of mouth, there is a 
waiting list for entrance, partly because 
the nursery is operated only during the 
semester. Parents are charged a 
Icen fee of $15.00 for 60 hours of 

The nursery was begun 1 6 years ago 
Mrs. Thelma Cushman, associate 
ofessor of home economics, for the 
;hild Development" class. Previous to 
, students were required to visit with 
5 children in their homes. 
Now students may observe the children 
)m an observation booth disguised he- 
ld a one-way glass and equipped with a 
le-way intercom to monitor sound from 

nursery. The nursery itself is a large 
Dm, modernly styled, including a 
chenette. All furniture and facilities 
scaled down to child size. Furniture 

is molded plastic rather than wood or 
metal, in an attempt to eliminate the 
danger of pinched fingers or splintered 

Outdoors, adjacent to the nursery, is 
a wall ed-off area with a cement floor 
for tricycling and a large triangular sand- 
box. Beyond the low wall in a grassy 
area are swings and monkey bars. 

Indoors, children have access to a 
large variety of toys, but they prefer 
finger painting, paper cutting, pasting, 
and playing with clay. "The children 
enjoy simple things most," says Mrs. 
Cushman. "Their favorite game is 
playing house in some cardboard boxes 
that freezers were shipped in." 

The nursery program is one of 
spontaneous play. Directed group 
activities such as "Drop the Hand- 
kerchief are kept to a minimum. 
The nursery is not a baby-sitting 
agency, but it strives to aid the clrildren 
in their development. The children help 
clean the room by putting away their own 
toys. They help prepare their own lunch, 
such as scrubbing the potatoes to be 
baked and cutting out and decorating 
cookies. The nursery tries to especially 
accommodate "only children" or 
foreign children who need to master 

"Most of the mothers who bring 
their children are not working 
mothers," states Mrs. Cushman, "but 
bring their children for the good done 
the child. Most stay and observe from 
the observation booth."

please stop at my office and talk 
with me. There is a conflict with 
the 9:00 a.m. scheduling of the

an interest in this class. I am 
willing to work with these students

SA to bring Tom Duro 
to Nov. 13 chapel 

On Tuesday the Student Association 
will present Mr. Tom Dure, who will 
he speaking on "Seduction, Education, 
^nd Paper Heroes" during the 1 1 ;00 

Mr. Duro is a rare combination 
l.'cturer. philosopher, story-teller, 
humorist, and educator whose 
versitalitv seemingly knows no 
hounds. As a fellow whose adult life 
got off to a very slow start, his 
agonizing search for career fulfill- 
ment and peace of mind led him through 
a series of diverse career efforts 
ranging from the professional to the 
unskilled challenges of man. 

His evolution to significance saw 
him gain recognition as a photographic 
model, produces and actor in TV 
commercials, and host of his own TV 
talk show. As a human relations and 
sales consultant, he works with several 
of the largest companies in the country. 

The State Department taped his voice 
ibr a Voice of America broadcast 
beliind the Iron Curtain. 

Today Tom Duro is one of the 
greatest natural speakers on the 
American scene and he is sought 
after for his vintage philosophy 
and creative conglomerate of common 
sense by which students and faculty 
alike can grow. 

As he tells his story, which has 
been deemed a serio-comic drama of 
classic proportions, he shares his 
self-evaluation with his listerners and 
challenges them to look in the mirros 
of their own li\es . And when it's 
over, many find that Tom Duro has 
led them inescapably to the conclusion 
tliat if he can make it, anybody can.

this school year 

Increased speculation over the pos- 
sibility of Governor Winfield Dunn, 
Senator Howard Baker, and singer 
Johnny Cash appearing at the college 
for secular chapels in the upcoming months 
has arisen over the past few weeks. 

The SA. along with the International 
Relations Club, an organization of the 
history majors, has been negotiating on 
the possibilities of these visits. 

Consideration has been given to 
inviting students and faculty from other 
colleges in Hamilton and Bradley Counties 

to come to SMC in order to enhance 
relations with other institutions. 

"Moose" Smith, executive vice 
president of the SA, when asked about 
the chances of these men coming, replied, 
"No definite confirmations have been 
attained yet, but correspondence has 
been exchanged with these individuals. 
We don't want to create an overly op- 
timistic outlook, but we want to let the

itore proposal and building code enforcement 
discussed at City Commision meeting 

e Collegedale City Commission 
la'l 7:00 p.m. IVlonday at the City 
The members present were: 
[ Fred Fuller, Vice-Mayor Dewitt 
len, Public Works Commissioner 
ler HerreU, and Finance Commis- 
Vq,, Wayne Vandevere. Also 
Int, in a non-voting capacity, were 
lAt'torney Glenn McColpin and 
[ Manager- Police Chief Doug Keller, 
police Commissioner, Warren 
jnond was not present, 
fquestion was raised, by a com- 
ity resident, as to why the Com- 
lon hearing on the petition con- 
jig the rezoning of the land be- 
ji Moore Rd., and Camp Rd., 
leen set at so late a date as Nov. 


r Fuller explained that the 
Kdiance governing the rezoning 
Iperty stated that there must be 
lay waiting period from the time 
Itition was received at city hall 
1 hearing could be held, and that 
|6 was the earliest date possible 
[the law. 

Ether question was raised con- 
e a proposed store to be located 
prea in question. The questioner 

bout the possibility thai 
light not be a market for such 
ler-taking, wanted to know if the 
ICollegedale had taken a market 
llo see if such a market existed, 
puller explained that any surveys

^ that, in the event there was

7 for development. The city is 
"igfor a reply from Mr. Townsend. 
Ispecial fund-raising campaign would 
pessary. The land in question here 
M'ea of about one-thousand square 
1 Mayor Fuller suggested that these 




and other questions concerning the 
rezoning be brought up at the Nov. 
26 hearing. 

City Manager Doug Keller suggested 
a bus-stop shelter be purchased and built 
for the city. The shelter would be 
made of clear, unbreakable plastic, 
and would measure seven and one-half 
feet by five feet. 

Attorney McColpin suggested that 
the Chattanooga Area Regional Trans- 
portation Authority (CARTA) would 
soon have funds available and that 
this might save the city some money. 
It was decided that the city attorney 
should talk with the CARTA Board 
and bring a report back to the next 
council meeting. 

Manager Keller, in other items, 
made some proposals that would set 
up a method of enforcing the building 
codes for the city of Collegedale. 
The proposals would also set minimum 
standards for septic tank systems and 
for drive way culverts. A builder 
would have to bring two copies of 
the plans for the proposed project 
to the city engineer's office, one of 
which would be kept on file, the 
second of which would be returned 
to the builder with the recommendation 
of the city engineer and a copy of the 

The ordinance would allow the city 
engineer to require more than mini- 
mum specifications if he feels that 
the minimum is not enough to handle 
the particular project. 

There would be inspections for 
each new driveway and each new 
septic tank field lines. During the 
building of a structure, there would 
be five inspections: (I) inspection of 
temporary electric supply to the 
building site, (2) inspection of footing 
trenches before the footing is poured, 
(3) inspection of structure before the 
walls are closed, (4) inspection of 
septice lank system before it is 
covered, and (5) a final general 
inspection after building is completed. 

Commissioner Vandevere moved 
that the city attorney, in consultation 
with the city engineer and other 
construction professionals, draw up 
an ordiance which could be presented 
at the next meeting. Corrmiissioner 
Herrell seconded that motion which 
was then unanimously passed. 

Manager Keller noted that the 
Collegedale Police Department, 
through its Detective Division, re- 
covered $3,000 worth of personal 
property. The Police Department 
has investigated seven burglaries-five 
businesses, one home, and one 
entering without breaking. 

The reserve officer force worked a 
total of 415 hours, and the force covered 
6600 miles on patrol. 1635 students in 
the Collegedale area were participants in 
bicycle and narcotics safety programs. 
Four policemen received letters of 

Vice-Mayor Bowen then presented 
a brief report on city streets and side- 
walks. The section of walks from 
Collegedale Academy to the shopping 
plaza has been completed. This was a 
joint project between SMC, the 
Collegedale Church, and the city of

Tlie bridge over Wolftever Creek 
is a joint city of Coilegedale-HamUton 
County project. One of the reasons 
for the slowness of project's 
completion is the fact that the county 
is using prison help. 

Commissioner Vandevere presented 
a report urging the revision of the 
city budget. He cited large overruns 
in the various miscellaneous accounts 
asoneof several reasons. He noted 
that a large portion of the overruns 
were items that should have been 
charged to other accounts, but stated 
that, even with these items deducted, 
the evidence showed that the various 
miscellaneous accounts had been under- 

It was agreed that the city manager 
and the treasurer will study the 
budget and bring revision proposals 
to the next Council Meeting- 

A some-what excited discussion 
was held on the problem of stray dogs 
and dogs which scatter garbage in 

Collegedale. It was moved by Com- 
missioner Vandevere that a committee 
be formed to study the problem and 
bring recommendations to the City 
Commission, at its next meeting. 

The committee consists of the 
following: (1) City Health Office, 
chairman, (2) City Manager, vice- 
chairman, (3) city attorney, (4) 
Mr. Costairson, (5) Mrs. Radford, 
and (6) Dr. Swinyar. The motion 
was seconded by Vice-Mayor 
Bowen and was unanimously ac- 

The Commission then passed upon 
first reading new tax-zoning maps for 
the city of Collegedale. 

The third reading of a new business 
tax ordinance, whereby all businesses 
would pay a minimum of fifteen 
dollars per year., and other-wise 
pay be percent of sales according tc 
three categories, was unanimously 
passed. The rates are 1/40, 1/20 
and 1/lOof one percent sales. 

The meeting was adjourned at 
9:35 p.m. |,y Stephen Jones 

Collegedale Medical 

burglarized in attempt 
to obtain drugs 

The Collegedale Medical Center was 
burglarized about 8:45 last Tuesday 
night, Oct. 30, in attempt to obtain 
drugs, according to D.E. Keller, 
chief of police. 

PoUce were notified of an alarm 
ringing in the medical center by 
Stanley Walker, professor of music 
for the college, who was working in 
the Collegedale SDA Church across 
the street from the building. Mr. 
Walker said he stepped outside the 
church when an unidentified little 
girl tapped on the window of his 
office and told him an alarm was 
ringing across the road. While out- 
side Mr. Walker saw two whites males 
running from the medical center so 
he called the police. 

Sgt. Bill Rawson was on the 
scene two minutes after receiving the 
call and was later joined by officers 
from Detective Division and by Chief 

The thieves entered the building 
by smashing a glass panel in the rear, 
thereby avoiding actuation of an 
automatic alarm system. Once inside 
the building, a sledge hammer was 
used to make a hole through a 
cement block wall into the pharmacy. 

After gathering a large amount 
of antibiotic drugs, thieves apparently 
left through the door of the pharmacy, 
actuating the alarm Mr. Walker heard. 
In their flight from the building the 
thieves dropped some of the drugs, 
which pohce later recovered. 

That same evening one suspect 
was questioned by Det. Lt. Dave 
Goodman and Chief Keller, then re- 
leased. Investigation is continuing. 

During the previous month of 
October, CoUegedale Police Detective 
Division made 9 arrests and recovered 
$4,000.00 in stolen property.

"Come on, and take a free ride," goes a popular 
song. To the chagrin of many unwilling SMC 
students, increased costs and food shortages are 
forcing them to go along for the ride. And the 
Euture looks expensive indeed. 

Jhose that pick up the tab for their eating have 
Vioticed that it's a pay-or-starve situation. For 
instance, a dinner consisting of Croquettes, a 
vegetable, an eight ounce carton of whole milk, 
jcake and a tossed salad which cost $1 .24 last year 
pow costs $1.50--a "heapin' helpin" of a 21 per 
pent increase. Some food prices have not risen 
Btastically,such as cereal $.12-$. 15; orange 
luice, S.20-$.20, and toast, $.06-$.06. But entree 
items have increased anywhere from $.05-$. 10; 
lorexaraple,Croquettes, $.30-$.4O; pizza, $.35- 
1.40, and hot sandwiches from $.30-$.40. 

» will this affect the typical SMC student? 

For one thing, if one were to eat less than the $40 
mnimum, he would have to limit himself to less 
|hanS133 a day-a crash diet! In reaHty students 
|an expect a 1 5-20 per cent increase in their board 
Ml. That means that last year's $70 feed bill will 
mcrease to a hard-to-swallow $90-$ 100. On stu- 
tent was shocked when he received his Sept. 30 
Itatement-with a $105 cafeteria tab. 

Tio can be blamed for this wallet-thinning develop- 
|i™t? Probably no single individual. Rather it's 
fcflecfions of the economic and agricultural- situation. 

[griculturally, poor crops and poor weather conditions 
pve decimated some crops by 40 per cent, according 
Ji Robert M. Raffel, purchaser for Chattanooga Food 
listribuiors. Inc. Other crops are unpredictable and 
ft'- "I feel, at this time, that it will take approx- 
Y'tciy 3-5 years to bring the crop situation back 
f normal," stated Raffel. 

pnoniically, according to Grange and Raffel, 
ficcs will not be coming down. "The farmer has 
I""'' '•> way to get the price he wants," is their 
Pncurrcnt opinion. Costs for these foods are the main 
f"se for increased prices-wages have remained stable. 
' RC. Mills, college manager stated that, "We're 
"ig to keep the wages down , but you can't 
I^P them down too long when the people that are 
piking for us have to go out and pay these higher 

|°* ''3S the cafeteria been affected? 

pording to Ron Grange, food service director for 
« cafeteria, "Food costs, to us, have gone 



IP 18-22 

Pef cent, that's just the average.' 


Products are hard to get. Entrees; for example, 
"Tasty Cuts," "Tenderbits," "Ruskets" and other 
Loma Linda products are unavailable. "Loma Linda 
has cut back the items they're offering about in 
half. Even Worthington is discontinuing some 
items; "Saucettes," "Chickettes, " maybe some 
others," said Grange. 

Entrees aren't the only commodity getting short. 
"Borden's has just taken all their cheese off the 
market. Kraft is going to be withdrawing its 
cheese too. I'm trying to buy some cheese 
now before they completely with- 
draw. It may be a temporary withdraw- 
we don't know," Grange related. 

Along with the difficulty of obtaining products 
comes an astronomical price jump in most areas. 
For instances. Grange was able to purchase "Little 
Red" beans for $16 per one-hundred pounds last 
year. When he ordered them during the first week 
of November the price was up to $43 per one- 
hundred pounds-a budget crunching 270 per cent 

But take heart-there will not be a "food shortage" 
as such. "Agricultural economists have told us 
that there will be some reshuffling of priorities on 
foods, but they don't feel that a rationing of food 
will occur," said Mills. Many are learning to sub- 
stitute available products for those whcih are not 
available. So instead of eating $.35 cakes and 
desserts, eat $.35 tossed salads, and change into 
a healthy SMC lettuce eater-that way tht 
transition to leaves, twigs, grass and bark 
won't be so shocking.

Where are You Going? 

Wc ^e now on the last lap of the first semester. Mid- 
EJ term exams are over and midterm grades have been assigned. 

^"^ Now is the last chance for some of us to cram in that work 

we've been putting off till the very last minute in a 
final, gallant attempt to raise our standing as college stu- 
dents. It is a time when gallons of the figurative midnight 
oil will be burned, and a time when puffy, red-rimmed eyes 
will appear on many faces. At a time like this we often 
/* ^^ ask. "Is that all there is to education?" "Is it really worth 

'^ ^ all that?" 

Can we be considered educated just because we have 

^"^"^"^"^ crammed a certain amount of "Knowledge" into our heads 

or because we have turned out a specific number of assign- 
ments? Is it right or even intelligent to abuse health and 
other principles just to accomplish an objective which may 
even by a questionable one at best? I reaUze that these 
questions have been raised hundreds of times before. But 
why, if we know the consequences of "knowing everything," 
do we consider this obtaining of facts the supreme objective 
of our education? 

1 think that as the new semester approaches, both 
students and teachers should again reevaluate their aims. 
What is the value of the knowledge we are seeking? What 
kind of truth or knowledge should be presented? 

As a Christian school, we have admitted that our search 
for knowledge is governed by specific principles that were 
set down by our Lord. 

Yet we often tackle so much material in so short a time 
that little if any serious thought is given to any one point. 
We emphasize memory work instead of encouraging the 
development of critical thinking skills. 

There are some things that the student can do to make 
his education more meaningful to himself, and more 
relevant to his goals. 

Students should seriously consider what they want out 
of school and look at their goals in terms of what must be 
accomplished here and now. 

I I'eel that we as students can and should make our own 
education worthwhile. 

Let's all work together to make next semester more 
meaningful to ourselves. Keep your eyes on the goals and 
keep your fingers crossed! 

Remember Me 

It must be an inherent quality of every one to make 
a name for himself during his short span of life here on 
earth. And it is very interesting to observe the various 
methods people use to accomplish this goal. 

Some attempt to gain their prestige with a 4.0 grade 
point average, while others make a name for themselves 
by then: athletic sicills. Others attempt to establish a 
reputation by becoming involved in student activities. 
A very few are content to avoid the limelight in the 
effort to simply make the worid a better place to live. 

This past week several endeavored to immortalize 
their names here on the SMC campus. They wrote their 
names in the wet cement of the newly constructed section 
of steps on Jacob's ladder. ApparenUy they didn't 
realize that by placing their names where they did, they will 
be trodden on for years to come.

those weren \ the dayA 

1 could scarcely contain my 
delight at finding that in its Nov. 
7 issue the Southern Accent 
had finally moved away from its 
preoccupation with petty provincial 
affairs, publishing some serious 
liistory. In the interest of quality 
scholarship, however, 1 must point 
out a few errors which probably 
resulted from the poor manuscript 
used by the researcher as his primary 

Fist of all the serfs at the CMS 
manor, unlike the usual farmer 
serfs, were volunteers training for 
the army of a distant Lord who had, 
at least in part, designed their program. 

The majority of the lectures in the 
cubicle were not concerned with 
manoral society but pertained to the 
military, most of the meetings, in 
fact, consisting of commentaries on 
quote; fiom the lord-general. 

It is interesting to note that 
though the serf whose manuscript 
was apparently used as the basis 
for "Those Were the Days" hated 


the premilitary program, he 
considered expulsion much more 
dreadful than living in the peaceful 
valley in misery. His dread was un- 
^ warranted. In an adjacent valley a 
' minor vasal, Winfield, maintained 
an ordinary agricultural manor, called 
CTU, for those unfit for or afraid of 
the military. 

As for the revolt against the trainim 
sessions in the cubicle: It never hapmn. 
on the CMS manor because, insp.le'^'^ 
of a f:w noticible fiaws in the nobility 
and program, most of the serfs were 
so anxious to join the war they refused 
to mterrupt their training for such 

I want to commend the writer of 
"Those Were the Days" for his 
splendid efforts in medieval history. 
I do hope, though, that he is a fresh- 
man, giving him another three years in 
which to learn proper research method. 
He must have been very brave to let 
youplublish his work anonymously.

Ed note-The following is a letter 
sent to Elder K. R. Davis, student 
association advisor, by John Q. Smith 
SA Executive Vice-President. 

Dear Elder Davis; 

I am writing you in your capacity 
as Student Association Advisor. I 
legrel to inform you that due to 
personal academic circumstances, 
I am forced to resign my position 
3S Executive Vice President of tlie 
Student Assoication effective 
preferably immediately. This action 
has been determined by a consistent 
drop in my grades since the first of 
(his school year when 1 took office. 
The drop has been most evident since 

It has been suggested to me, by you 
among others, that I lighten my work 
load and concentrate on studies. 1 
have done this and although my grades 
have been helped the duties of the 
vice president have floundered. I 
am convinced for me to continue in 
this manner would be an injustice 
to the Student Association and my 
personal conscience. It is hard for 
me to continue as a mediocre student 
and mediocre student officer. 

My decision is not impulsive. 1 
have pondered for several weeks what 
to do. 1 have spoken to you earlier and 
discussed the situation with my wife, 
my academic advisor, and several close 
friends. 1 see no other alternative. 

My grades are extremely important, 
.,you know, for I plan on applying 
to Law School. At mid-term my 
gpa was not terrible, but neither was 
it adequate. Since then, it has become 

1 am sure it would be easier for 
the SA if 1 waited until the end of the 
semester to resign. However, the 
problem is my grades and the end of 
the semester would be too late. It is 
this semesters grades with which I 
am concerned. 

If necessary, I will continue my 
duties until Sunday, Nov. 25, two 
weeks from today . It is my wish, 
thougli, someone can be found to 
nil my position earlier. Again,! 
apologize for the certain inconvenience 
caused, but hope you understand I am 
a student first, and priorities dictate 
I meet that responsibility.

According to the Student Association 
Consitution the vacancy in the office 
of Executive Vice-President is to be 
filled by a presidential appointee that 
would have to be ratified by the SA 

When the Accent tallced with 
President Litchfield he stated the 
he was not going to make a hasty 
appointment, but is planing to give 
much though and consideration to 
the choice before reaching a decision. 
He did express optimism, and he 
hopes to have a Vice-President 
appointee by the next Senate 
meeting which will be held on 
Monday, Nov. 26. Litchfield 
said if a new Executive Vice- 
President has not been appointed 
by the twenty-sixth, he will act as 
a chairman of that Senate meeting 

"Litch" told the Accent that he 
had several possibilities in mind, 
but he would not disclose any names 
He said "there is no one front-runner at 
this point. " He did state nowever, 
that he was not going to limit his 
considerations to the members of the 
Student Senate. . 

Early in January a special election 
wttl be held by the SA in order to 
fill the Exectuive Vice-President s 
office permanently.

of late leaves 

studied by 


The fourth session of the Student 
Association Senate was called to 
order, at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, 
November 12, 1973. After the 
call to order, SA Secretary, 
Connie Clayburn, called the roll and 
then the business began. 

Ric Carey, one of the student 
representatives on the Student 
Affairs Committee, advised the 
senators that they should go over the 
handbook and submit suggested 
changes to the committee rep- 
resentatives or to the Student 
Affiars Committee via Senate reso- 
lutions. Mr. Carey informed the 
Senate that the Student Affairs 
Committee was now in the process 
of reviewing the Student Handbook 
and recommending changes to the 
Faculty Senate. Mr. Carey felt that 
the student representatives do carry 
some influence on the committee, 
but stated that resolutions from the 
Senate, with the proper rationale 
behind them, would have influence 
on the committee, but stated that 
in helping to present the general 
student viewpoint. The Senate 
then agreed that the individual 
Senators would study the Hand- 
book, talk with their constituents, 
and bring back recommendations at 
the next Senate meeting, 

John Smith, Chairman of the 
Senate, then read a note from Don 
Bogar, SA Treasurer, stating that a 
budget revision was in process and 
requesting that all recommendations 
from various organizations, both present 
and future, be submitted to either 
himself or LeClare Litchtield, SA 
President , as soon as possible. 
In order that the proposals be 
studied before the 
revisied budget is submitted to 
the Senate. cj-.„, 

Harry Haugen, annual Editor, 
presented a proposal at the last 
previous Senate meeting concern- 
ing the need for dark room equip- 
ment for use by the student pub- 
lications. Mr. Haugen could not be 
present this past Monday, but 
arranged for Mr. Merchant, College 
Treasurer to present a detailed list 
of equipment needs totaling $1,02S- 
Mer Merchant, pointed out that due 
to the sale of some older equipment, 
the Senate would need only to ap- 
propriate nine-hundred dollars. 
After some discussion, the Senate 
voted to propriate the sura requested. 
' Senator Zima made a motion 
that individuals giving presentations 
to the Senate present an outline 

to the SA Secretary, who m urn 
wUl see that of 

Is outline are to be given to the 
Senators when they receive the 
agenda. After some discjis^or. 
Senator McClarty moved tha 'he 
motion be amended to read, that the 
Tt^s be given to the Secretary who 
in turn would see that each Senator 
receive copies of the outlines on 
SFrlday'following the Monday of 

totalkt'll'^'f"^""""™"' *^ 
fo taiK u. " aueslions 

based upon <i cieai^i "' 

The first item of new business 
was a proposal of whether or not the 
late leave-in its present form-should 
be abolished. Senators Liles and 
Wade took the position that they 
should be. Senators Coliver and Eldred 
presented the opposing side. In 
speaking for a change Senators 
Liles and Wade pointed out that the 
main objection against late leaves 
seems to be that having to have a 
late leave turned in by Friday 
noon, often forced the ladies of 
Thatcher to have to fill out erron- 
eous information. 
The reasoning behind this was that 
since on many Saturday nights the 
activities of the individuals tend to 
be spontaneous. Tliey recommended 
that the women should have easier 
methods of obtaining a late leave 
on Saturday night. 

Senator Coliver and Eldred 
pointed out that late leaves were a 
method of accounting legally for 
students, especially young ladies 
under 1 8. The school is legally 
responsible for minor students. 
Another point for keepign late 
leaves was that an emergency might 
come up in which the student would 
need to be contacted. 

Senator Eldred pointed chit that a 
trend in secular colleges was an increase 
in drop-outs after these colleges 
abolished late leaves. 

The Senate voted that a letter 
be sent to all Dormitory Deans 
and to the Student Affairs Committee, 
citing the Student Handbook, and 
recommeding that residents of all 
dormitories be allowed to make late 
leaves on Saturday night. 

The SA Project Committee did 
not have a report because many of 
the members have resigned. Senator 
Williams stated that the purpose of 
the committee will be to study various 
possibilities for SA projects and to 
offer the Senate several alternatives. 
Senator Smith then suggested the 
possibility of the Senate starting the 
passage of resolutions and working 
policies on a continuing basis. This 
would bind the future Senates to 
follow such resolutions, which could 
then be repealed only by specific 
percentage vote. This would help 
give direction and continuity to SA 
policy. The disadvantages would be 
that the Senate might not be able to 
act as swiftly as it had in the past. 
Another would be that if a sub- 
stantial minority chose to do so, 
they could utilize previously passed 
decisions to block the passage of items 
which they might be against. The 
Senate voted to appoint a committee 
to be chaired by the Parlimentarian 
to investigate the feasibility and 
desirability of such a policy and to 
see what, if any Consitutional 
changes might be necessary. 

Senator Burnside reported on the 
possibility of changing the Chapel 
attendance policies, and stated that 
he was not given any specific reasons 
for the present policy. The 
Senate was voted to table discussion 
on this issue until the Senators had 
had time to poll their constituents and 
to further study the matter. 

The meeting was adjourned at 9 p.m. 
The next Senate meeting wiD be 
Monday, November 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Dr. Bond, who is considered one 
of the most able speakers in the South 
on the above issues, will present the 
other side of the educational scene, 
as opposed to that normally viewed 
by SMC students on a predominantly 
white, middle-class campus. He is not

Focuify consider 


of student evaluation 

Hallock vacafions 
in Caliiornia 

The fa.~ulty affairs committee 
has been given the responsibility 
of planning the next faculty meeting 
which is to be held this Sunday. 
The committee was chosen to have an 
open discussion of methods and 
techniques of evaluating a student's 
academic performance. 

Dr. Donald Dick, professor of 
speech and chairman of the 
Communications Department, 
will chair the discussion. Five stu- 
dents have been selected by the faculty 
affairs committee to introduce the 
topic by stating tliier impressions 
topic by stating their impressions of 
and reactions to evaluation procedures 
currently practiced at SMC. These 
students were chosen because they 
were known by faculty to be willing 
to speak out on weak or discriminatory 
.points in present evaluation methods. 

The main purpose of this discussion 
is to disseminate to the faculty-at- 
large techniques being successfully 

used by faculty members in particular 
Consideration will be given such questioni, 
as "How are grades derived?" "What 
type of tests and/or experiences are 
used as criteria for evaluation?" To 
what size classes may the bell curve 
be applied successfully?" and so on. 

Another purpose of this discussion 
is to learn how to deal fairly with the 
student in all situations. "Students 
are the ones hurt if we don't maintain 
a justifiable system of grading," 
said Stuart Berkeley, professor of 
education and chairman of the 
Education Department. "It is 
our hope that through this 
discussion will come an in depth 
study, both private and collective, 
that will lead to better evaluation 
practices and instruction." 

After their presentation the faculty 
members are to respond by debating 
the validity and reliability of methods 
being practiced, by Barbara Palmer 

SA Senate Agenda 

Nov. 26, 1973 

Duane hallock. Southern Accent editor, 
■ditor, and Dr. Melvin Campbell, Accent 
faculty advisor, left CoUegedale Tuesday 
to attend the annual meeting of the 
\dventist Student Press Association, 
being held tliis year on the campus of 
Pacific Union College. 

The ASPA convention is a 
seminar workshop for the editors 
and faculty advisors of all newspapers 
published by Adventist colleges in 
North American. The convention 
which is held at a different college 
every year, was held last year at 
Southern Missionary College. The 
president of ASPA is Norma Jean 
Seal, editor of the Sligonian last 
year at Columbia Union College. 

The purpose of the ASPA 
convention is to provide an 
opportunity for the different 
journalism personel to assemble and 
pool their ideas concerning the 
different problems they are having and 
what they are doing to solve them. 
Professsional journalists also attend 
the convention to give lectures and 
assist iri the workshops. 

Some of the topics to be 
discussed at this year's convention 
are: layout, financing a school 
newspaper, writing top quality news 
stories, gathering the news, and the 
relationship the advisor should talte 
with the paper.

Collagadal*. Tenn. 

Tlie Undergraduate Record Exami 
nation will be administered this Sunday 
and Monday to all four-year seniors 
completing classwork in December. 
AJl four-year seniors are required 
to take the examination by their 
final semester before graduating from 
SMC. The examination includes 
area, aptitude, and field tests. 

The area tests measure general 
knowledge in the three broad areas 
of the liberal arts; humanitites, 
natural science, and social studies. 
Basically, they evaluate the student's 
ability to grasp and apply concepts 
and therefore do not stress details 
of specific courses. 

Tire humanities test provides a 
means of measuring undergraduate 
familiarity with philosophy, literature, 
and other major arts. It covers historical 
periods and styles from the classical 
through the contemporary, emph- 
asizing the kind of information and 
ability that students with nonspecialized 
interests in the humanities are likely 
to have acquired during college. 

'the natural science test includes 
questions on the bilogical and physical 
sciences, measuring the knowledge 
acquired in nonspecialized science courses 

The questions in the social science 
test sample the fields of history, 
geography, economics, sociology, 
political science, anthropology, 
and social psychology. It is designed 
to measure the student's understanding 
of fundamental concepts, his knowledge 
of historical trends, and his ability 
to evaluate material on the basis of 
given standards. 

The aptitude test measures verbal 
and quantitative abilities. 

The verbal section tests the students 
knowledge of words and their relation-

along this line. 
^esecond area was concerning 
communication between 
illy and students. This area has 
iroved greatly since the current 
cers were installed. John 
«)se"Smith and 1 spoke at the

What programs are the SA 
working on currently? 

The chapels are what we've 
been working on, such as the Bob 
Evans program. We'd like to have more 
interesting events as these. Dennis 
is also working in conjuction with Dr. 
Clark in the History Department 
to get Senator Baker and Congressman 
Pettis. We received a letter from 
Senator Baker's office stating he 
would be interested in coming to 
speak to us. 

The social committee is working 
on a Christmas program also. 

There was some discussion about 
communications with other colleges- 
has there been anything done in this 

The only thing that has been done this 
year is getting the sports programs 
underway with other schools. And 
then there is the Purple Egg Festival 
of Arts and Crafts. We invite many 
schools to this event. 

Have the SA officers made attempts 
to meet the students on campus? 

It is very hard to do, but we do 
try our best to meet as many students 
as possible. We give out the Jokers 
and annuals. I would Uke to ask the 
students if they are in the student 
center and we are in our office, to 
just stop in and let us meet them. 
We'd like to hear what they think. 

Do you have additional news 
which you'd like to relay? 

The most important thing is 
what we've discussed in the SA 

meetings about the little money we 
have. We'd like to put his money to 
good use, possibly outside ourselves 
for someone in some type of great 

Personally, I'd like to see if go 
somewhere where it will be useful 
and wouldn't be a PR type of thing. 
I encourage the students to tell their 
senators where they'd like to see this 
money spent. They (the students) 
can make their desires here and it is 
very important. 

What are the hours on the SA 

We have the hours posted on the 
bulletin board in the Student Center 
when each one of the officers will 
be in. If someone needs to see a 
particular person, he can call and make 
an appointment for a specific time. 

What has the student involve- 
ment been in the SA programs? 

The main thing for involvement 
has been through the different social 
programs we've had like the "rained 
out" pasture party and the welcoming 
party, but as for a SA project per se, 
there hasn't been one. 

The students have helped plan these 
functions, and then we have certain 
groups of students who serve on 
designated committees on a regular 

Do you feel that the SA has lived 
up to what it should be? 

Things are alot different when you 
are looking at a position than when you 
are in that place. As a student voice 
on an Adventist campus, there isn t 
much you can do excpet ask questions 
and make suggestions. 

That is by no means, the ideal way 
ofhaving things, though. I wish we 
did have a stronger voice, but that s 
just the way it's run.

Wayne E. VandeVcre, chairman 
of the General Education Committee 
in a letter to departmental chairman. 
Dr. Cyril Futcher, academic dean, 
and President Knittel, solicited 
"reactions, comments, suggestions, 
etc." concerning the Proposed Broad 
Guidelines for General Education at 
SMC, before a final report is made to 
the faculty Senate. 

According to the General Education 
Committee, the proposed program will

registration of the sophomore 

4. Approval of the program by the 
major department in a departmental 
meeting-if a major is selected. 

5. Approval of the program by 
the person in charge of general 

The concepts of the proposed 
program and the major changes from 
the present program would be: 
I 1. Reduction of total hours 

2. Reduction of general education 
to four broad categories: man's 
God, Man's Culture, Man's 
Environment, and Man's Com-

Faculty Senate 



of upper divisiori 

The Faculty Senate approved 
Monday afternoon a plan to introduce 
four one-hour mini-courses to the 
Physics Department curriculum, 
beginning next year on a trail basis. 

The courses are: (1) Scientific 
Basis of Music, (2) Physics of Art, 
(3) Color, Sound, and Force in 
Interior Design, and (4) Technology 
and Science in Society. Each class 
wdl consist of two I 'A hour class 
periods per week for one third of one 

The Senate also heard a report from 
the General Education Committee 
which includes suggestion of a 
number of changes in the general 
education requirements for graduation. 

Tliese include the addition of a 
qualified person to oversee the students's 
programs, individual programs developed 
by the student and his/her advisor within 
broad guidlines, reduction of required 
hours for a B A or B S. degree from 
1 28 to 1 24, and reorganization and 
addition of courses and development 
of new teaching methods to implement 
these changes. 

. Other suggested revisions include 
I elimination of upper and lower 
I division class designation, addition of 
a general A.S. degree, and elimination of 
the requirement to have a minor. The 
General Education Committee report 
will be studied in depth at an extra 
Senate meeting scheduled for Dec. 3. 

There is sometlung happening on 
the campus of Southern Missionary 
College that is peaceful, pressureless, 
and full of love. It is the silent 
reformation, more commonly known 
as Positive Way. So silent is it that 
a visitor casually perusing the campus 
and community wouldn't even know it 
was going on. Its goal is simply to 
experience God to the fullest. 

The people involved haven't made 
the goal yet since there is an infinite 
amount of God to experience for an 
eternity. This perspective allows for 
continual growth which takes the 
possibility away fo anyone realizing 
the ultimate goal, i.e., once an ex- 
perience is reahzed the need for another 
one is brought to light, and then 
spoiling It for the others who haven't 
made it yet by rib'oing them, i.e., 
judging your brother. 

"Peaceful" is how some describe 
this silent reformation, because 
there is no group raising a fuss setting 
everything outwardkly astir. There 
are not even any sermons on a 
reform movement being preached as 
is customary in reformations. It 
is a pressureless reformation because 
believe it or not, there wasn't one 
cent spent on PR trying to get people 
out to some happening. The word 
spread by mouth from neighbor to 

It is d loving reformation because 
it reaches out in sincerity and humility 
to fellow students and faculty. It 

does not approach someone and « 
"In the name of the Lord get It 
together in this or that." Nor ()o„l 
say, "You have got to get an exptJ 
with God or burn in hell." Quite J 
contrary, the people involved 
privately approach fellow studei,„ 
faculty and say, "I need a deeper"e] 
perience with God; will you expeJ 
Him with me?" 1 

In just one year there liave beeJ 
three baptisms and about two h»J 
college and community touched 1 
directly by the silent reformation,! 
Indirect results are impossible to [ 
count. This year has started winJ 
enough trained people to deal \\iij

^and acquaints the audience 

Mr, and Mrs. Antrobus and their 
Uplisliments. . 

he rest of the cast is comprised 
ama students enrolled at UTC. 
,he play is actually a satiriza- 
lof a play in which much of the 
'iiy is abrupted by flying props, 
^rdcues, disagreeable actresses, 
[general mayhem. Unbeknownst 
audience, these seemingly 
,oiis mistakes are part of the 
(a1 approach Thorntons Wilder 
led to take when he wrote the 

le first act opens with Mr. and 
knirobus, tlieir two children 
h and Gladys, Sabina, the maid, 
fcedrick and Baby, the two pet din- 
lis trying to survive the chill factor 
Ingthe Ice Age. 
pile second act opens with tire 

Antrobus family at a political con- 
vention in which Mr. Antrobus ha; 
just been elected President of the 
order of Mammals. Family squabbles 
ensue and Mr. Antrobus threatens to 
leave Maggie, his wifq and marry Sabina, 
the maid. But alas, the family holds 
steady when a horrendous storm requires 
the Antrobus's to board a boat with 
lots of animals on it in order to escape 
the floods from the deluge during the 
storm. Sound familiar? 

The third act begins with 7 of the 
bit part actors and actresses sick from 
with ptomaine poisoning. Hence, 
these parts are performed by the " 
"behind the scenes people" after a short 
short practice session. The act finally 
officially begins with the family being 
re-united after the brutal Neopolianic 
wars had split them up. 

According to Grimsley, "the play 
to say the least is surpising, but it is 
one of the most difficult things I've 
done as well as one of the most enjoy 
able things I've done. 1 can promise 
whoever may come, that it will be a 
night of good clean fun.

TV A power plant 

foured by 
government class 

The American government class, 
taught by Dr. J. L. Clark, professor 
of History, toured the Chickamauga 
Power Plant at Chickamauga Dam 
Sunday. The 1 1 members of the 
group left SMC at 9;30 a.m. for the 
one-hour visit at the power plant 

Chickamauga Dam, wliicli is part 
of the Tennessee Valley Authority 
(TVA), was started in 1 936 and 
completed in July, 1940. It is one 
of nine dams on the Tennessee River. 
The others include: Fort Loudon, 
Watts Bar, and Pickwick Dams in 
Tennessee; Guntersville, Wheeler, 
and Wilson Dams in Alabama; 
and the largest, Kentucky Dam, 
in Kentucky. 

Within the TVA system there are 
many tributaries, amny of which also 
have dams and steam-plants. Some 
examples of this are the earth and 
stone dam on the Holston River, 
the Ocoee Dams on the Ococe River, 
and Noriss Dam at the junction of 
the Clinch and Powell Rivers. 

The TVA serves an area comprising 
the southwestern third of Kentucky, 
the state of Tennessee, large portions 
of northern Alabama and northern _ 
Georgia, and portions of Virginia, 
North Carolina, and Mississippi. 

Chickamauga Dam, located near 
Chattanooga is more,than one mile 
in length and 129 feet high. 
Over 500,000 cubic yards of 
concrete and almost 3,000,000 
cubic yards of earth and stone w';nt 
into the construction. 

The dam, which opened for com- 
mercial hydro-electric power production 
in 1940, now has four hydraulic 
turbines which have a total production 
capacity of 108,000 kUowatts of 
electric power per hour. The turbines 
themselves measure 264 inches each m 
diamater and rotate on shafts which 
are 36 inches in diameter. The dam 
and reservoir represent about MI 
million worth of investment. . 

It has done much in the way of 
providing clean and navigable water 
ways and stocking them Mth 
aburdant supplies of fish from TVA 
hatcheries. TVA has also helped to 
create better methods of farming • 
for the Tennessee River Region 
and also produces a s"P™or ftrtitor. 
TVA has also begun land reclamation 

andreforestrationin the strip-mining 
district of Copper Hill in east Tennes- 

[n the area of flood-control, 
TVA has saved Chattanooga from 
eight major and many minor floods 
since 1936. Last March TVA pre- 
vented a major flood from wiping out 
about half of Chattanooga, including 
a major portion of the downtown 
district. The damage without flood 
control would have run somewhere 
over 500 million dollars. 

Though the river itself reached 
levels of 22 and 23 feet above flood 
stage, the TVA system was able to 
keep it down to about seven feet 
over flood stage, limiting damage to 
around $35 million. 

The TVA has two major purposes 
which arc: (1 ) flood control, and 
(2) hydroelectric power production. 
In both, TVA has been notably 
successful. In order to increase the 
output of electric power to the 
Tennessee Valley Region, TVA has either 
in operation or under construction 
three nuclear power plants, located 
at Sequoyah, 1 5 miles north of 
Chickamauga Dam, Watts Bar, and , 
Brown's Ferry, near Chickamauga, 

The TVA has made many contri- 
butions to area employment, conser- 
vation, and environmental projects. 
At die present time TVA has or is 
installing air pollution controls 
in a large number of its coal-burning 

^ During the tour, the government 
class was shown the generator- 
turbine rooms, the air-compression 
units which are used to blow steam 
out of the turbines to keep them from 
shorting out, and the taU-gate areas 
where water enters the turbine umts. 

The lake made by Chickamauga 
Dam a surface area of 35,400 acreas 
and a shore line ofSlO miles. The 

lake attracts about four million 
recreational visits, and is surrounded 
bv nineteen boat docks and resorts, 
^C ate and local parks, seventy-four 
public access areas, thirty club cites 
and over one-thousand private rest- 
dencel Tire recreational equipment 
and development costs on the lake 
are estimated at over $28 million.

prepares for energy crisis 

The cold reality of a petroleum 
ilhortage keeps growing colder as the 
Meets woreen. Directly tied to this 
1 the shortage of energy itself. 
Precipitated by an Arab oil boycott, 
his shortage is causing every nation 
10 curb their energy appetite. 
But more important is what happened, 
Ihat the current situation is, and how 
lollegedale, TN., and the United 
ilates will be driven to make changes 
1 a formerly "luxurious" life. 

The Arabians who control about 60 
ler cent of the world's oil reserves, 
|l a desperate move to gain allies 
|the Mid East war of Oct. 6, 
Isorted to an oil boycott. By Oct. 
Ithey had reduced production by 
£per cent-4 million barrels a day- 
Id warned they would cut by five 
ircent each month until they were 
itisfied with Israeli-Arab agreements. 
It the same time the price of Arab 
I was increased by a breath taking 
p per cent. 

Unfortunately, there seems to be 
no changing of the Arabian purpose. 
It's a "we get what we want or else" 
proposition, with the United States 
feeling the main brunt of the situation. 
The Cairo newspaper, "Al Ahram," 
is quoted as saying that the oil cutoff, 
coupled with embargoes, will be 
directed against the U.S. economy 
because Washington continues to 
support Israel. 

The continuing Arab embargo 
of oil shipments to the U.S. which is 
expected to cut U.S. consumption by 
18 per cent, or about 3 million barrels 
of oil per day, is not the only problem. 
It seems that all nations connected with 
supplying Arab oil to the United 
States have been issued ultimatums 
to stop supplying the U.S. or lose their 
own Arab oil shipments. 

The Netherlands, prime supplier 
of heating oil, is dependent on Arab 
oil to process for the U.S.; Canada 
is affected, too. In addition to this. 

p Watergate Figure. On Tuesday's SA assembly on December 1 1 , Mr. 

m Oliver, a key figure in the recent Watergate scandal, will speak on his 
|l^«ment in the Watergate Affair." Mr. Oliver is the only Democratic official 
positively to have had his telephone tapped in the Watergate scandal, 
fmerly the Executive Director of the Association of State Democratic Chair- 
P'ver holds the key position in the Democrat's pending $6.4 million civ^

Venezuela, Nigeria, and Indonesia, 

all suppliers for the U.S., have increased 

their oil prices. 

What is the situation in Collegedale? 
On the campus of Southern Missionary 
College awareness of the problem has 
already affected some changes. 
According to William Taylor, director 
of college relations, the college will 
cut back on long, involved promotional 
trips, as well as trying to plan vacations 
so gasoline won't be used as much, and 
there will be a cut-back in field trips 
by bus for the various departments. 
Francis Costerisan, superintendent 
of the plant maintenance and con- 
struction department, states that at 
present the college has a stable energy 
situation. With a campus that is 
heated by 50 per cent steam and 
50 per cent electricity, and not 
expecting TVA to cut back electrical 
output, the only difficulty that may 
arise is the availabiMty of gas to heat 
the steam. Yet even here the problem 
isn't a crisis : the coUege has 10,000 
gallons of reserve heating oil. 

Also, SMC is on an uninterrupted 
gas service which means that before it 
would lose gas allocations, the 
industries and businesses in the area 
would lose their gas service. Those who 
live in the dorms can take heart! 

Talge Hall and Thatcher Hall are both 
supplied entirely by electricity. 
The city of Collegedale is in a 
relatively good position, so far. 
According to Beecher Smith, operator 
of the DX service station, the 95 
per cent cutback in gasoline has still 
left him with plenty of fuel for the next 
90 days. But heating oil is definitely 

Also, there has been a price jump 
for heating oil in the Collegedale 
residential area of $.18 to $.26 in 
50-gallon orders. And it's hard to 
get. Suppliers of the heating fuel are 
hesitant to sell to those who aren't 
their regular customers. Mr. Smith 
adds that should any Collegedale 
resident run out of fuel oil and be 
unable to obtain any, his station is 
equipped with a limited amount of 
emergency oil, and he will supply 
10 gallons at a time to that resident. 

What can Tennessee residents 

Tennesseans may stay warm this 
winter without any problem. First, 
the Colonial Pipeline which comes from 
Texas and Louisiana fuels most of 
the state. In other words, Tennessee 
is not dependent on outside oil. 
Then TVA supplies a great deal of- 
power to Tennessee, and there is no

Faculty Senate 
reconsiders present 
grading system 

WaUng of the civU suH "md he pr'es'entran intriguing account of the behind- 
I "'* happenings that would make Mission Impossible 

1 Impossible look like a soap opera. 

The Faculty Senate voted Monday 
that no course in which a grade of 
less than C- is received may count 
toward a student's major or minor. 

The previous policy was that no 
grade lower than a C could count toward 
a major or minor. However, with the 
institution of + and - grades, it was 
felt that this change should be made. 
A student must still have an overall 
2.25 GPA in his major field to quahfy 
for graduation. 

In other business, the Senate voted 
to approve a recommendation which 
was drawn up in answer to the pending 
General Conference wage policy adopted 
at the Autumn Council in October. 

In essence, this recommendation 
states that the wage scale for salaried 
denominational employees should be 
determined without regard to race, 
religion, sex, national origin, color, 
marital status, or spouse's earning 
status. , ,. 

The faculty feels that the pending 
poUcy calUng for ascertainment of 
earning status of an employee's 
spouse does not meet the spirit of 
, national law, aUows de facto 
discrimination, and is thus ethically 
suspect even if it does not make 

denomincational organizations liable 
for legal suits 

The statements also calls for change 
of the policy that Loma Linda 
Universitjt publishing houses, and other 
organizations are exempt from tliis 
pending policy. 

The Senate also voted to form a 
study committee to be responsible 
for giving direction in the planning 
of a fine arts center, and voted that 
the following people be members of 
this committee: Mr. Charies Fleming, 
(chairman). Dr. Bruce Ashton, Dr. 
Don Dick, Mr. Bob Garren, Dr. Marvin 
Robertson, Miss Ellen Zollinger, 
Dr. Frank Knittel, and Dr. Cyril 

There was lengthy discussion of 
the Academic Affairs Committee 
report which recommends that study 
be given to making interior design 
an interdepartmental major, after 
inquiry is made as to tiie success of 
this plan at Atiantic Union CoUege. 

This item was tabled, and will 
be considered again at the next Senate 
meeting on Dec. 10.

there is a shortage 
of what whatever it is 

The mentioning of the terms "energy crisis" and 
"fuel shortage" have become almost as common as rain 
here in Collegedale. And it appears that there is nothing 
that can be done about any of these situations. Or does 

As far as the weather goes, an umbreUa will usually solve 
the problem of the rain. But what about the energy crisis? 

Last week the administration voted to take several 
actions to conserve on the college's consumption of fuel 
and energy. Recommendations were made for the faculty, 
students, and employees of SMC to follow. 

College-owned vehicles are being driven at the suggested 
SO miles per hour speed limit for cars, and 55 for trucks 
and buses. 

Temperatures are being lowered in the college's com- 
mercial industries, enterprises, and academic departments. 
As President Frank Kjiittel puts it, "the college also uses a 
substantial amount of natural gas for steam heat for certain 
sections of the campus, and, therefore, all such areas will 
be turning back thermostats to conserve fuel." 

The college requested that the ornamental Christmas 
decorations in the College Plaza be turned on for only two 
hours each evening, as ate the lights on the Christmas tree 
in the mall. All decorative lighting will be turned off the 
day after Christmas. 

The promotional trips of the college will be limited. This 
will restrict such groups as the orchestra, band, and the 
Collegiate Chorale from travelling to concerts, except for 
appointments which have already been made. 

Tlie energy crisis is a nationwide problem. It is not as 
severe here in Collegedale as in other parts of the country. 
The administration, however, is to be commended for 
taking these actions to help reduce the college's consumption 
of fuel. 

It will take unified effort across the nation to solve the 
energy problem, and those of us here at SMC must start 
domg our part here in Collegedale. The work from here on, 
for the most part, must be on an individual basis. This is 
the only way the problem will be alleviated. It is evident 
that the only was we can help meet the energy crisis is by 
starting to conserve our own unecessaiy consumptions of

In fact President Nixon again announced 
more plans for reducing fuel consumption 
last Sunday night. This marked the 
beginning of a two-stage plan to reduce 
gasoline production and permit in- 
creased production of other petroleum 
fuels. Every plan to avert a total lack

Until then Collegedale can lake 
heart at Mr. Bruce Gerhart's powerful 
statement, "As a driver of a Volks- 
wagen, I'm not really worried about the 
fuel shortage. I have a wood stove, 
22 acres of woods, a cross-cut saw,

December 5, 1973 The Southern Accem 


jeep donated to 
Nicaroguon mission 

The Nicaragua mission station, 
under the sponsorship of Rudolf 
Aussner, associate professor of 
modern languages, has been the recipient 
of several valuable gifts. 

The first item received was a 
1972 jeep donated by Dr. Richard 
Chandler, a dentist practicing in 
Orlando, Fla. While attending a 
family retreat at Camp Kulaqua early 
in September, Dr. Chandler was stirred

by a mission appeal given by Mr. 
Aussner concerning the mission. Four 
weeks later Mr. Aussner received a 
phone call from Dr. Chandler saying 
he had purchased a "brand-span:ung-new" 
jeep with only 2100 miles on it. 

On his way home from a youth 
congress he attended in Miami this 
month, Mr. Aussner aquired the jeep 
from Dr. Chandler and brought it to 
SMC. It will be driven to Nicaragua 
by one of the student missionaries, 
Leslie Smart, who plans to visit 
Collegedale Dec. 13. 

The students at the mission were 
excited when they heard about the 
jeep. "With the new jeep the students 
will be able to conduct a mobde 
clinic without fighting the whole 
jungle," said Mr. Aussner. 

Another much needed item, 
given by Ellsworth McKee, president 
of the McKee Baking Company of 
Collegedale, was a diesei-powered 
generator which enable the mission 
to produce electricity to operate 
the clinic and its equipment. 

The dental equipment provided by 
the father of one of the student 
missionaries, Bobbie Sue Wohlers, 
and through contacts made by Bill 
Ues of Orlando, has made possible 
the practice of dentistry in a limited 
fashion. The mission's resident 
dentist, Leslie Smart, graduated 
from SMC last spring with a B.A. 
degree in religion, but has since 
proved to be talented in other fields. 

William Sager, the administrator 
of Highland Hospital, Portland, TN., 
donated a trailer to transport the 
new generator from place to place and 
a "Tote-Goat" motor scooter to 
aid the missionaries in dieir travel 
between villages. Mr. Sager has 
also offered the mission a 21-foot 
inboard motorboal which is to 
be sold with all the proceeds going 
to the mission. 

With the continuing interest and 
support of students and friends he;e 
at home, Mr. Aussner anticipates a 
bright future for the mission project 
so optimistically begun.

Students form new physics class 

Six students in introduction to 
physics class are structuring their 
own physics course, according to 
Dr. Ray Hefferlin, professor of 

When Terry Carmichael, Bill 
James, Del Johnson, Dave Riesen, 
Tim Snow, and Jack Waggen registered 
for the class, they understood it to be 
a general education course stressing 
the concepts of physics as applied 
to human society. 

After joining the class, however, 
these students discovered that the 
emphasis of Uie course was placed 
upon the application of physios to 
nursing and education. 

Rather than drop the class, they 
got together with Dr. Hefferlin and 
decided to form a section of the class 
devoted to studying physics in society. 

The fellows attend classes and labs 
along with the other class members 
and take the same tests, since the tests 
usually cover class discussion and 
the labs. 

Homework assignment: are 
made by the students themselves, 
their only requirement being that 
they complete and turn in 1 09 
problems for the semester. Each 
week five students do the problems 
and one grades the homework which 

is then turned in to Dr. Hefferlin. 

Do the fellows like the arrangement? 
According to Dave Riesen they do. 
It gives them a chance to learn more 
what they want to learn rather than 
what the teacher says they should leam. 

As for Dr. Hefferlin's opinion he 
says, "1 like it. It's great to have stu- 
dents with that kind of initiative.'

I A Civil War History Tour, designed 
for students and Civil War buffs, is 
being offered by the Andrews Uni- 
versity history department from June 
nthroughJuly 14, 1974. 
I Members of the tour will visit the 
major battlefields and places of 
interest connected with the Civil 
War including Washington, D.C. and 
vicinity, Gettysburg, Harpers Ferry, 
Memphis, Chattanooga and vicinity. 
Savannah, Atlanta and vicinity, 
Wilmington, and Appomattox. 

The tour will be conducted by 
Dr. Gerald Herdman, associate professor 
ofhistoryat AU. Dr. Herdman has 
taught Civil War history at AU since 
1960 and has visited most of the places 
associated with that period. 

The total cost of the tour is $595 
and mcludes all expenses except 
food and souvenirs. An :\ir-conditioned 
bus with lecture facilities will be provided 
for the tour. 

"The tour is not specifically 
geared to students," said Dr. Herdman. 
"It would be useful for everyone who is 
interested in early American CivU War, 
or Southern history. 

"Students find Civil War history much 
more meaningful when they can 
visit the actual battlefields and places 
of interest connected with certain 
events," he continued. "We read 
about, talk about, and write about 
these events, but being there makes 
them that much more real and under-

Brannaka, the six other strong leader 
under him and a nucleus of 1 5 
members. They meet in the Student 
Center for half an hour every 
Wednesday night to study, then break 1 
up to visit the dormitory residents in 
their rooms. Off-campus witnessingis 
done on Sabbath afternoons. Second 
semester the class will begin study in 
the New Testament witnessing book 
to learn how to give the gospel 

Chuck Luster, who is in charge of 
the Abundant Life Center, is very 
optimistic about plans for its' future. 
Beginning in February, a Five-Day Pl>« 
will be held, followed by a Right 
attitude clinic, which is designed to 
help people learn how to cope with 
everyday problems, in March, 
health classes will be held, includuig 
instructions in natural remedies. 
Positive Way classes will begin in

Lrsity of California, developed 
1 extended hydroponics for 
le used noimedium, such as sand

Bantsand hold the nutrient 
Xlion, but rather a wire screen. 
■Collegedale Hydroponics had its 
linning when William Burkett, 
■nmanager of the Village Market, 
Ik an interest in hydroponics 
[ill two years ago. Mr. Burkett 
liloped the industry in cooperation 
I Charles Fleming, the general 
ess manager of SMC. 
r. Fleming, who is in charge of 
loverall development of college 
listries, along with related commer- 
■finance, had this to say about the 
(nningcf the industry: "When we 
[went into it, we found no one 
[e that would supply our needs. 
Wouldn't get started, because we 
Idn'tget parts, so we decided to 
Ime the hydroponics center for 
Eastern area of the United States." 
tor anyone interested in hydroponic 
ling, the industry will provide all 
materials needed. They will 
[icate as much as possible of the 

house in their manufacturing plant 
and assemble the rest on the spot 
In addition to this, they will supply 
all the information needed, as well as 
the nutrients necessary for plant 

The physical plant of Collegedale 
Hydroponics consists presently of 
one head building which houses the 
offices and manufacturing facility, 
two large greenhouses, or Gro-Master 
Hydrogardens, and one small green- 
house. By the end of November, 
another large greenhouse, built in 
their own "quantut hut style," and 
two smaller home garden units, termed 
"green-geni hydrogardens," should be 
in operation. 

Contents of the buildings 
consist primarily of 48 fiberglass 
trough 16 feet long and 30 inches 
wide contain sterile sand. This 
sand serves only as a base to hold the 
root structure of the tomatoe plants. 

About three times a day as liquid 
nutrient is pumped into the trough, 
fdling them to the brim. The solution 
remains in the trough for 30 minutes 
and then drains back into the tank by 
gravity. During the rest of the day, the 
tomato plants just He in the sun and 

It is estimated one building will 
produce about 50,000 lbs. of hy- 
droponic tomatoes per year. Ninety- 
five per cent of the tomatoes are 
perfect in size and shape. 

Because of the conditions in 
which the tomatoes are grown, they 
are picked dead ripe, in contrast to 
having them picked green in conven- 
tional greenhouses, and have a shelf 
life of approximately two weeks

without the necessity of refrigeration. 

When Mr. Fleming was asked about 
;he benefit of this operation to the schooj 
he said, "Right now this is not a profit 
making operation, due to the great 
amount of research done. We hope 
by March or April it will become one. 
We have been delayed by the in- 
ability to get things when we need 
them and at the right price." 

No students are employed at 
Collegedale Hydroponics, as 
employees must be full-time workers, 
because of the detailed work and 
technicalities involved. It would be 
unpractical to hire students, due to 
high student tumover and instability 
of prolonged working hours. It is 
hoped some students can be employed 
in manufacturing in the future, as the 
industry progresses. 

Although almost any vegetable 
can readily be grown hydropomcally. 

some of the most economical and 

profitable are tomatoes and cucumbers, 
I because of the extended life and bearing 

period of each individual plant. 
I Tliere are several advantages of 

growing by hydroponic methods. 

The controlled environment used in 

hydroponic farming allows elimination 
lof chemicals, disease, and insects, which 
(are such a common problem to other 

types of fanning. 

Because the product is healthier, its . 

life is extended to a great degree. The 

growing period is lengthened, because 
'it is possible to grow vegetables

Student Senate 

The fifth Student Assocation Senate 
meeting began with SA President 
Utchfield introducing Senator Robert 
Zima as the appointee to fill the , 
Executive Vice Presidential vacancy. 
Litchfield told the Senate that in 
Zima he saw someone with whom he 
' could work weU and someone with 
enthusiasm for the job- The Senate 
unanimously approved the appointment. 

Zima addressed the Senate 
statiM^how he hoped to "pump new 
So the SA. He discussed 
several new ideas which mcluded 
ooktag into new approaches to chapels. 
Vice resident Zima stated that many 
ofhis plans may be idealistic, but 
iToriy through visionary plans can 
his goals be accomphshea. 

Senator Haskell Williams, chairman 
of the SA project committee, reported 
on three proposed projects. These 
worthy student fund, (2) s"PPOrtmg the 
Nicaragua Mission beyond the $ 1 ,000 
which is currently contributed annually 
by the SA and (3) a special SA contin- 

gency fund which is an experimental 
project to assist individual students 
with their personal mission and 
evangelistic projects. The Senate mil 
further discuss the appropriation of 
these funds at dieir next meeting. 

The Senate passed a resolution for 
the establishment of a committee 
to study the administration 's 
rationale for their ban on beards and 
to study student feeling on this 

The next item of business was a 

'■ discussion of further study on pant- 

' suits as general campus wear for 
women. A representative of the 
administration will be present at 
the next Senate meeting to field 
questions on this subject. 

Don Bogar, SA treasurer, 
presented to the Senate the revised 

' SA budget. Bogar explained that 
the reason for the revision was the 
increased enrollment this year. 
After some discussion of i few 
keypoints, the Senate approved the

Agenda Supplement 

S.A. Project Definitions. 

The grant would be used for 
sustenance of the current 
S.A. Mission Program in 
progress. The finds are 

for the regular operating 
budget and would not be 
used in expansion. Included 
on that budget are; translater, 
domestic, food, medicines, 
vehicle maintenance and in- 

Recommended appropria- 
tion: 53,000. 

This fund would be under 

the supervision of a committee 
consisting of three Senate 
appointees. Students engaged 
in aid projects could submit 
requests to this committee 
for dispensation for specific 
items. These funds would be 
used only in activities where 
the student is involved 
personally whether in time or 
resources. The committee 
would be responsible to 
determine the need, validity, 
and degree of involvement of 
the requester, and would be 
required to report back to 
the Senate on its activities 
and appropriations periodically. 
Recommended appropria- 
tion: S200. 

This grant would be 
advanced to the Worthy 
Student Fund which under 
the direct supervision of 
Mrs. Laurel Wells (Student 
Finance). The funds are 
dispersed to students under 
extreme need in appropriate 

Recommended appropria- 
tion: $50. 

D. Additional Recommendation 
At the end of the year, any 
amount left in the S.A. 
"Appropriations and 
Contengencies Fund" (bud- 
geted as $4200.) would be 
advanced to above projects, 
as decided by the Senate. 

Continuing S.A. Policies 

This committee is to study 
continuing policies of the S.A. 
This is a policy whereby the Senate 
would vote on an issue and at 
the same time make this issue 
binding on succeeding Senate(s). 
This pohcy would give continuity 
to S.A. Policy. At the present time 
there is nopolicyand, thus, the 
S.A. can wander in many 
less directions. 

The Continuing policies would 
be binding only on such issues 
as would be specified at the 
passage of that (those) parti- 
cular issue(s). 
The problem is to create a 
continuing policy relatively easy 
to be passed, when a more perm- 
anent policy is felt to be 
needed, and at the same time 
while making it somewhat diffi- 
cult to revoke, not so difficult 
that should the policy become 
a road-block to student progress, 
that it could be changed. 
Committee on S.A. Organization. 
There have been several people 
asking about several areas of 
the Student Association struc- 
ture especially concerning the 
social areas. 'They wonder if 
we are not somewhat dupli- 
cating functions. 
A committee is being formed 
to study the Student Association 
structure and do some investi- 
gation on all aspects to find out 
what exactly each officer is 
elected to do. 

"I've learned a lot about cars. I 
used to think that 1 was a pretty good 
mechanic, but this automotive class 
has shown me how much I didn't 
know." Thus stated Lew Jultl, a 
student taking the automotive fund- 
amentals class. 

The requirements for the class are 
as follows: two tune-ups; rebuilding 
one engine, one carburetor, and one 
alternator or generator; a brake job 
on all four wheels; working on an air- 
conditioner; and one optional project. 

The students have to round up their 
own cars to work on, but according to 
Juhl it isn't any trouble. "The only thing 
I I've had a hard time finding is the 
I alternator job, but I put up a notice on 
■ the bulletin board and eventially some- 
one showed up." 

Dr. Wayne Janzen, associate professor 
of industrial arts, has .^ranged to get 
automotive parts for wholesale. This 
has facilitated the students greatly, 
because besides being cheaper, the 

parts are now readily available, 
"It's a real blessing," said Dr. Janzei, 
"Last year we spent $20,000 for pan 
just for the class, and this is at a savin I 
of anywhere from 30 to 50 per cci ^ I 
on the reguhrcost. 

The class doesn't charge any labo, 
on the repairs they make, so this makes I 
it very economical for "customers" to 
let the students work on their cars

Decembers, 1973 The Southern Accent 

The Art Exhibit Series being 
displayed on the first floor of McKee 
Library for December is a student 
exhibit of paintings done by the Paint- 
mg 1 class and plaster sculpture pieces 
done by students of Robert Garren, 
assistant.professor of art. The second 
'floor exhibit is a display of drawing by 
the students in Drawing III. 

Usually works shown have been 
done by graduate students, but since 
George Walker, instructor of Painting 
1 will be leaving after the close of the 
first semester, paintings by his students 
will be displayed. 

Besides teaching in the Art Depart- 
ment, Mr. Walker does architectural 
illustration for architects in this area. 
Both students and instructors have 
expressed their desire for Mr. Walker 
to move his studio from California to 
the Chattanooga area. 

Malcolm Childers, who will join 
the SMC staff second semester to 
succeed Mr. Walker is now in 
CaUfornia finishing his Master 
of Fine Arts degree. 

In January, etchings and drawings 
done by Mr. Childers will be on 
exhibit in McKee Library. 

$1000 brought in 
by WSAAC stuff-in 

GRE applications 
close Wednesday 

Over $1,000 came in last month in 
the area's response to WSMC's mass 
mailing promotion. 

Last month 30 or 40 students, 
along with WSMC's full-time staff, 
pitched in and stuffed 1 1 ,000 direct 
mail pieces. "The response to our 
WSMC Stuff-in was great! And we surely 
want to thank all those kids who took 
time to help," said Jim Walters, WSMC's 
Development Director. 

The mailing promotion was for two 
purposes. Approximately 7,000 mail 
pieces were sent to Chattanooga's 
Civic Leaders and culturally interested 
individuals. These people were invited 
to look over the enclosed Program Guide 
and return a self-addressed postcard 
if they wanted to become a regular 
receiver of the monthly guide. 

Another 4,000 mail pieces were sent 
to WSMC's current Program Guide mail- 
ing list and to area Adventists. A letter 
along witli a Program Guide, was sent 
inviting these folk to become charter 
members of WSMC's Month Club-a 
group of individuals who beUeve in the 
station to the tune of $5.00 a month. 

"So far," says Walters, "we have received 
just over 100 members. But if we are to 
continue our present plans for improving 
our listening service, we need 200 

One WSMC enthusiast put his thoughts 
on supporting WSMC with $5.00 a month 
this way: "That's about the cost of one 
stereo album. And I'd rather pay WSMC 
that $5.00 a month and let them do the 
work of playing the albums." 

Three hundred people have requested 
.to be placed on the Program Guide 
maihng list so far. More are being 
received every day, according to WSMC 
officials. The Program Guide mailing 
list now has approximately 2,500 
names, and hopes are for an eventual 

The WSMC Stuff-in was held on Tues- 
day, November 13. The cafeteria's 
main baquet room was filled with env- 
elope boxes. Program Guide boxes, and 
60 mail bags. Students would come and 
work for an hour or so and then leave.

ISunday- Bicentennial 
of the Boston 
Tea Party 

Dec. 16 dawned bright and fair 
Ion Boston. Shopkeepers, merchants, 
lilors, colonists, and loyal Englishmen 
juonged the streets-nothing unusual. 

e topic of tlvree ships moored 
Biietly in the harbor awaiting un- 
loading came up frequently, "I wonder 
that the radicals will do about that tea?" 

Samuel Adams was wondering, too! 

le could remember the act passed 
n 1761 that gave the customs 
IfTicers of the East India Company 
t to "invade" private homes 
Ind warehouses to search for smuggled 
(oods, and the Sugar Act of 1 764, 
(he Stamp Act of 1 765 , then the 
Mcaratory Acts which gave England 

le power to tax the colonists on 
jverything they bought from the 
pother country (they couldn't 
|uy from any other nations). Only 

e years ago there had been a 
lonftontation of Redcoats and Boston 
jolonists over the quartering of troops 

iithe colonist's homes-that was the 

teton Massacre. For an activist like 
n Adams, a Tea Act and those 

hiee ships in the harbor were some 
jood reasons for asserting his rights 
|herall these other insufferable laws. 
Tlicre was a deadline on those sliips; 

fey had to be unloaded by Dec. 17th 

t their cargo would be seized by 

bsloms officials. That wasn't any 

|od either, according to Sam Adams. 

|fler the colonists simmered down and 
e excitement was over, the tea would 
ytventually be sold. 

The man of action, Sam Adams, 
had led the patriots in agreeing to 
resist the authorities, but every- 
thing came to a standstill. Nobody 
knew what was coming next. 

And then it was Dec. 16. One more 
day till the customs officials would 
act. Eight thousand Bostonian activists 
gathered at the Old Soi'th Church 
that evening as the ships' owners 
pleaded with the governor to let the 
ships return to England-to no avila. 
The shipowner reported to the 
gathering that Gov. Hutchinson wouldn't 
back down and Sam Adams rose and 
declared, "This meeting can do no 
more for the country." 

What followed is anybody's guess. 
Some authors claim that these 
colonists rushed out in great excite- 
ment sweeping down to Griffin's 
Wharf and acting like the savages they 
had disguised themselves to be. 
Other authors hold that these patriots, 
with orderly, .methodical and 
tremendously conservative determi- 
nation, moved down to the wharf. 
Whatever the case, every patriotic 
American knows that these "Mohawks," 
some 150 of them, strode on board 
the three ships while other colonists 
kept authorities ftom interfering. 
Three hundred and forty-two tea 
chests where hacked open and thrown 
into the harbor waters-$90,000 worth. 
And those shipowevers and the East 
India Company could hardly contain 
theU wrath.

iihT """"e ^ '■"'« Christmas cheer with future SMC , students during a 

'we band concert last Saturday night. 

The initial resistance of Americans 
to the "oppression" of English 
bureacrats had begun. 

Hardly had the tea sunk to the 
ocean floor when England had already 
taken action on this unruly group of 
colonists. The "Intolerable Acts" 
were passed., such as the Boston Port 
Bill which prohibited any ship to enter 
the Boston harbor-starving the 
dependent colonists was their aim. 
Along with this, but not directly the 
result of the Intolerable Acts, came 
the increased quartermg of troops. 
Of course these independent colonists 
resented the further boardmg of 
troops in their homes for many of 
these individuals soldiers were rather 
"nasty and ill-tempered," making 
outrageous demands upon the family. 

Now, Boston and the state of 
Massachusetts no longer stood alone 
in their defiance of the treatment 
England was giving them-the twelve 

other colonies rallied in support. 
They elected delegates to the first 
Sept. 5, 1774, almost a year after 
the "Tea Party" escapade, and 
because of the Boston Port Bill which 
was still in effect. 

After the first armed conflict on 
April 18, 1775, in which Paul 
Revere took his famous ride to arouss 
the Minutemen, the thirteen states 
were committed to a course of action 
that brought them face-to-face with an 
all-out battle to preserve their rights 
as free English citizens. The Declaration 
of Independence was drawn up by the 
Continental Congress and adopted on 
July 2, 1776. 

America was now on the road to 
freedom and indepence-aU because 
of a man named Sam Adams, three 
ships carrying tea, a Tea Tax, and 
the Boston Tea Party.

Chem. prof, hired 

Southern Missionary College has 
ended a ten month search for a 
chemistry professor with the hiring of 
Paul Gebert, Ph.D. of Gainsville, 
Florida, says Melvin D. Campbell, 
chairman of the Chemistry Depart- 

A vacancy has existed in that depart- 
ment since last February when Dr. 
John Christensen retired. He has 
continued to teach while the coUege 
looked for a replacement. 

Earlier this fall Dr. Winston Craig 
of Austrialia was hired, but he was 
unable to obtain a working visa. 

Beginning with the 1 974 fall term, 
Dr. Gebert will be teaching organic

Hello, Good-bye 

Earlier this semester 1 read a statement by the late 
Hairy S. Truman, in which he was describing some of his 
feelings as President of the United States. He said, "No 
one who has not had the responsibility can leaUy under- 
stand what it is Uke to be President, not even his closest 
friend or members of his family. There is no end to the 
chain of responsibility that binds him, and he is never 
aUowed to forget that he is President." I wish I had said 
that in regard to being the Southern Accent editor. 

Without going into any of the details of the circumstances 
which have forced me into this situation, it will suffice 
to say that I am resigning from the position of editor. 

To fill the vacancy created, two Accent staff members 
will be going into a co^ditorship for second semester. 
Ric Carey and Steve Grimsley are now responsible for 
the publication of this newspaper. They are both com- 
petent in the skills necessary to edit a student newspaper. 
I have no questions as to their success m their new positions. 

It is never easy to "change horses m the middle of the 
stream," but when it is necessary, the best must be made of 
the situation. 

One thing is essential to the success of this change. Tie new 
editors must have the fuH confidence and trust of those they 
work with. It is imperative that they not be looked upon 
as substitutes, but rather they must be acknowledged as 
the full-fledged editors of this paper. 

I am deeply indebted for the respect and consideration 
that has been shown me during this past semester. I only 
request that my successois be shown the same respect. 

And so, with this issue, I have terminated my respon- 
sibilities as editor. Ric and Steve have only begun theirs. 
Join with me in giving them the full support they need to 
publish a student newspaper of the highest journalistic

To the Editors, 

Re. the singing of "Side by Side" this 
last Friday night at Vespers. 

I feel that the nearly compulsory hold- 
ing of hands during the singing of this 
song has lost the cormotation of frateriu- 
ty and unification which overwhelmed me 
the first time 1 stood with two sweaty 
hands clasped in mine, as I lustily sang a- 
long with the Heritage Singers. 

But after six or seven singing groups 
had all exhorted the audience to stand and response to the push of a butti 
join hands and "sing along," I began to get button being the phrase "We'll join 
a ritualistic feeling similar to the one ex- hands together." 
perienced in church as a worshiper stands, 
sits, kneels, stands, sings, sits, all in a care- 
fully ordered way that can be predicted 
months in advance because of its unvary- 
ing sequence. 

As I watched the congregation all 
standing hand in hand Friday night, 
it was reminiscent of kindergarten, 
where, to a child, it is wrong to sing 
"Onward Christian Soldiers" without 
marching around the room, or to repeat 
"Here is the church. . ." without going 
throught the motions. 

Again, I was reminded of a roomfuli 
of some carefully programmed robots

spontaneity in religious convocations

The Southern Accent 

What is greatness? 

Today would be the last time 
the beloved old professor would meet 
with his philosophy class. As usual 
the students rose to their feet when 
he came in. As usual he began with the 
question "what is on your minds today?,' 
jnd as usual the topic was suggested. 

"GREATNESS; you ask. ...greatness!!" 

Greatness is to leave in the furrow 
of life the abundant seen of a generous 
heart; to walk through the dusty valley 
where the poor and disinherited of the 
earth are forced to travel, exchanging 
their bitterness and displeasure 
for real joys and satisfactions.. .To 
wear the sandals of humility to traverse 
the roads of life removing the reefs 
and stones in which the helpfless 
and the forgotten ones stumble. 

Greatness is to mitigate the bitter 
mourning of the widow with actions 
and wordi of kindness and sympathy; 
to silence the weeping of a child with 
a kiss impregnated with love; to fill 
the emptiness of an orphan's heart with 
paternal understanding and affection. . . 
To extract affliction from the hearts 
that wither under their load of sorrow 
and fill them with the delight of a 
meaningful life. 

Greatness is to show the pilgrim 
the way he must travel; to share the 
light of truth with the souls that 
struggle in the darkness of error; 
lo give spiritual warmth to the lonley 
hearts that shiver in the coldness of 
human indifference. . . to offer the 
water of heaven to a brother that 
faints in his thirst of justice, for 
love and for truth. 

Greatness is to love. To love much 
and to love everyone; to gather throns 
and sow flowers; to give to life more 
than what one gets out of it. . . 

Therefore, if your heart beats 
greatness, if your chest requires the 
air of the summit, don't let the 
artifical glory of the false heroes 
seduce you. Today they exhibit their 
"greatness" up on high, tomorrow only 
a trail of ashes will remain in their 
luminous wake, and a shapeless 
shadow where their lives faded away. . . 

You. . . , you be humble and be 
brave. Step out of the crowd to 
become what God wants you to be. 
Don't mind walking inthe silence of 
!the anonymous. Only try to live so 
1 shoever follows in your footpath, 

ay find a flower in every footprint, 
Nd a pearl of truth and beauty 
Werever your heart lost one more drop 
Pf life. . . 

And if later, looking back from the 
pd of the journey, you see that the 
prtd was beautified by your brief 

stay, you may close your eyes with 
a departing smile; you will have 
conquered true GREATNESS." 

The professor said no more. 
And after a half-smile and a gentle 
movement of his hand he left the 
room and went his way. 

The room was crowded, and yet, 
for some reason, there was silence. 
The only sound that crossed the air 
was the fading echo of two worn-out 
shoes and a white old cane moving 
slowly along the wooden hallway.

We are living in an instant age. 
We have come to expect instant service. 
When we turn the Ughts on we expect 
them to come on and when we turn 
on our heaters or the air conditioners, 
or plug in our refrigerators, or the 
electric rollers or our radio, we 
EXPECT them to work, NOW. 
But all of a sudden one day we pick 
up a phone and there isn't that instant 
service. There is a strange clicking 
noise. But with waiting (that word 
that we are not at all used to, except 
for that long awaited date, or the 
check from mom,) the hne clears and 
we can make our call. All is well

Keep Christmas in driving 

During the month of December try 
P "Keep the Christmas in Your Driving.' 
Pery wonderful and powerful lesson 
[our Bible is to "Do Unto Others As 
|oi' Would Have Them Do Unto "Vou." 
T' "s try to do this not only during 
p holiday season but throughout the 
•* year in 1974. Use turn signals 
F hand signals when stopping or 
*"<8aturn. Drive to the right, 
1 obey all speed signs. When 
fProaching ;, stop sign or yield sign, 
ry 'hem. Use common sense in 

speed during inclement weather, bad 
roads, hUls and curves. These are a 
few of the rules of the road, and surely 
those of which we expect others to 
obey. _, , 

For your own safety and others 
slow down when approaching an 
intersection or railroad crossing. 
Watch out at all times for small 
chddren at play. Yes let us at all 
times Keep Christ in OrirDrmng. 
The practical aspects ol thinking, 
..ciwiL and lalkina safety on our 

highways and in our homes through 
concern for others helps buUd quality 
and character in people, and this can 
(vastly improve our world. 
' If you could conjure up the Ghost 
jofChristmas Past, he'd tell you the 
sad true story of the thousands of 
families whose Christmas season was 
destroyed by a holiday traffic accident. 
And the real pity is Uiat most of these 
"accidents" are preventable. With 
this in mind, we must all work together 
10 make Christmas and the new year a 
more enjoyable time for everyone. 

except for the nerve endings calming 
down after that shock of not getting 
the instant service that we expect. 

There is an answer. The phone 
system can't really be blamed this time. 
It is we that are the ones at fault. We 
are the ones tymg up the lines. The 
College is on its own independent 
system the Centrex. It connects all 
the college phones within 800 lines so 
that it is complete in itself without 
the whole community being involved. 
Collegedale, Apison and Ooltewah are 
all in the Chickamauga system and 
Chattanooga is separate too. So this 
sometimes is the reason why we have 
trouble getting out of the SMC system. 
The Collegedale or Chattanooga systems 
may be having trouble. 

The problem boils down in essence 
to the fact that Collegedale and 
Chattanooga and the surrounding areas 
are having growing pains. They aren't 
able to keep up with the demands 
because they can't always get the 
equipment, nor do they have the man- 
power it takes to get it all installed 
the moment that it is requested. It 
isn't that the systems are inadequate 
within themselves. They are doing the 
best they can. 

As £ar as the college Centrex system 
goes, there is the capacity for 800 
phones which is more than all the dorms 
and the adminstration combined. It is 
close but we don't run over. But 
there aren't that many chcuts. The 
main problem has been after 10:30 p.m. 
when the dorms are doing the calling. 
Say 40 guys call, that is 40 circuts 
tied up and then say that 10 people take 
the receiver off the phone, they are 
tying up another 10 lines for no reason 
at all. It is going to take consideration 
on the part of us all to get this worked 
out and have a system that is the way 
that is ought to be. Here are a few 

1. Try to understand that if you 
have a problem it may be the fault of 
another system other than the college's. 
Be patient they are having growing pains 

2. Don't leave the phone off the hook. 
If you don't want the call don't answer. 
If the noise bothers you, move the phone 
and put something over it to muffle 

the sound. Or if it is on the waU stuff 
something between the bells. (I didn't 
say to distruct the phone, be careful.) 

3. If you have someone calling 
you and you can't get them to quit, 
hang up as soon as you know it is them. 
If you gasp turn red and die on the 
floor, they will love it and be back 

for another reaction as soon as you 
have recovered enough for another. 

4. Remember to dial correctly. 
You use the 3 digit extension if calling 
within the system. If caUing out dial 
9 and if calling Chattanooga dial 9 
then 7 and your number. 

5. Hang the phone up firmly and 
you won't get the ring-back. 

6. Love your neighbor, be patient 
and considerate. 

Remember they can trace the phones 
that are just leaving the receiver off 
the hook. And if they continue to 
have complaints they are going to 
start disconnecting those phones. You 
wiU have to pay to have them reconnected. 
So leave your receiver on unless you don't 
really want the service. 

Just think some people don't have 
phones in their rooms, or even their 
houses. Let's appreciate what we have, 
even with its little quirks.

Colporteur Club to 
recruit for project 


Rafiel Mendez , perfonning his own 
composotion "Clavalitos," during the 
SMC band concert Saturday night. 

Just before joining the band in "Stars 
and Stripes Forever," Mendez than!<ed 
the band, and its director Dr. Jack Mc- 
Oarty, for learning the accompaniment 
to his compositions so well in just a five 
I day period 

Tlie SMC Student Colporteur Club is 
seeking 100 members "interested in serv- 
mg God and their neighbors" in order to 
help the club achieve ambitious goals set 
lor 1974. 

At a breakfast on Dec. 2 the club mem 
lership voted unanimously to recruit at 
least "one out of every 15 students on 
campus" for a special project called 
"Operation Tyner." 

Student colporteurs and their associ- 
ates have set plans for the Tyner area, 
with an eye toward an anti-drug and per- 
.onal evangelism thrust in that locale. 

"Operation Tyner" is the result of a 
L-ontact by a student colporteur with a 
parent in that area, which is relatively 
near to the SMC campus. Some parents 
m the Tyner area feel that they have faced 
more drug-related problems than most lo- 
cations of their size and type, and have 
expressed a desire for help from students 
who have a faith and a will to share it. 

"We have the answer to these person's 
problems," said Student Colporteur Pres- 
ident Dave Green. "We have the drug 
journals and related magazines to distri- 
bute as a tangible link in the chain that 
will lead them to their answer- - Jesus 

"We sincerely intend to present the 
citizens in the Tyner area with working 
evangelists, students who care what hap- 
pens to each of the persons in that area 
and who can introduce them to Christ," 
Green said. 

The pen of prophecy has noted."lf 
there is one work more important than 
mother, it is that of getting our publica- 
tions before the public, thus leadmg them 
to search the Scriptures. Missionary work 
- - introducing our publications into lam- 
Jies, conversing, and praying with and for 
them- - is a good work, and one which will 
educate men and women to do pastoral 

That same author of inspiration wrote 
that "when church members realize the 
importance of the circulation of our lit- 
erature, they will devote more time to 
this work. The church must give her at- 
tention to the canvassing work. This is 
one way in which she is to shine in the 

The colporteur club pleads for those 
people who are anxious to "let their 
light so shine before men, that their good 
works might glorify their Father in hea- 

"We hope every teacher and student 
will respond with a hearty 'here am i, 
send me," said Green. 

Anyone interested in more informa- 
tion should contact the club faculty spon- 
sor, Jan Rushing, or student colporteurs, 
Dave Green, Dave Weigley, Lyle Anderson 
Dennis Grau, Denver Cavins, Charlotte 
James, or Gloria "Cookie" Webb.

distance of the residents of our tract," 
explains Mrs. Judy Winters, assistaiit 
professor of nursing. "We're trying 
to meet the needs of the people and 
this includes making ourselves avail- 
able at their convenience." 

The students work four days a 
week at the clinic. The first three 
days are spent making house calls to 
the three families assigned to each 
student. During these visits students 
instruct the household in proper 
health care; they keep records of their 

observations and make out a care plan 

for their patients. 

On Thursday the students work at 

the clinic from 1 1 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Mr. Kohoutek discovered comet 

Early this year a Czech astronomer 
working at a German observatory noticed 
an unfamiliar spot on a photograhic 
plate he had made March 7. Within a 
few days it was clear that the 
object was a dramatic new comet- 
Kohoutek, named for its discoverer. 
It has steadUy been drawing closer, 
heading in the general direction of the 
sun around which it will whip on 
Dec. 28. At its closest approach it 
will be within 15 solar diameters of 
the sun and the sun's rays wQl be 16 
times as hot as they are on earth. 

If all goes as predicted, this will 
be the most spectacular heavenly 
body that any living person has seen. 
It will probably become about as bright 
as Venus but possibly much brighter; 
its tail will appear four times as long 
as the distance between the pointers 
ofthe Great Dipper. According to 

the best present observations and 
calculations, the orbit is a parabola. 

If this is so, the comet has come from 
outer regions to which it will return. 
Created in galactic space, it has never 

before entered the solar system. In 
such case it may differ in composiuon 

from the planets, asteriods, comets, 
and dust of our system. 

If all goes well, the best views wiU 
come after the comet has looped past the 
sun The nearly straight tail will then 
have been activated by solar wind (part- 
icles nying out of the sun) and by 
radiation. After sunset, in the 
western sky, from the fifth to the 
fifteenth of Jan. there will be a 
favorably combination of darkness 
and high brightness of the comet. 
There are other times when one should 
look. From about the twentieth of 
Dec. until the day after Christmas the 

comet will rise in the eastern sky 
shortly before the sun comes up. It 
WiU then get too close to the sun for 
safe looking. After it passes the sun on 
the twenty-eighth it wUl not set m 
the west until the sun has gone down. 
Then it will be brightest but the skies 
will be light. 

The evening sky may prevent 
observation. It may be clouded all 
the time-probably will be on any 
particular day. The orbit may not be 
exactly as predicted. The comet may 
break up as it passes around the sun. 
So the best recommendation would be 
not to take chances. If clear nights 
are predicted between Dec. 15 and 
Christmas, one can get up in the 
morning by six and look in the east 
where the sun will rise. There one 
will see the very bright comet. 

New mall planned for Plaza 

According to Charles Fleming, 
general manager of finance and develop- 
ment for Southern Missionary College, 
plans are being made to open a new 
mall in the College Plaza in the comer 
between the Campus Shop and the 
Mercantile. This space is presently 
being used by College Distributors, but 
in January they will be moving to their 
new warehouse. 

This will open up 12,000 square feet; 
enough room for 9 or 10 shops, depend- 
ing on their size. Although the Board 
1 will not be voting on the mall until 

their February 13 meeting, many 
businesses have already shown interest 
in leasing space. 

The Campus Shop is crowded and 
needs some additional space. They are 
considering taking out a wall and ex- 
panding into some of the available 
area. If they do this, they will 
probably have a separate section for 

CoUegedale Interiors is planing 
on moving into the mall as soon as 
possible. Among the businesses that have 
shown interest are a shoe store. 

electronics shop, and an interior 

If everything goes as planned the 
mall will develop gradually until it 
reaches completion sometime in the 
late summer of early fall.

Don t worry about it," he said 

Vera smiled. It was wonderful to 
have such a considerate husband, she 
thought, although, of course, every 
woman did. 

Suddenly, the six-tube, all-plastic 
automatic door record-player said 
someone is here to see you " 

John flicked the switch of the wire- 
less, seven-tube, all-plastic, limited- 
range radio transmitter and said, 
"Who is it?" His voice was carried 
outside, where the Wilsons were 
standing, having just gotten off the 
all-plasUc7:ll. "No automatic door 
timer?" Paul Wilson asked. His voice 
was picked up on a second limited- 
range, all-plastic radio transmitter 
and reproduced inside where John 
could hear it. 

''Vera forgot which train you were 
on," John Smithers said. "Sorry." 

He got up and went to the door. 
Through the cellophane window, he 
could see Paul Wilson and his wife 
Alice. Paul was wearing a soft metal 
suit, the kmd that was all the fashion 
rage in 1973. His wife was wearing a 
plastic soil<overed dress which had a 
pretty patina of extra-thin roses and 
peonies growing out of it. 

John pressed a rubberized button 
inside the plastic door and a hidden 
one-tube suction device opened it. As 
soon as Paul and his wife were inside, 
the suction device, sensing an increase 
in air pressure inside the house, closed 
the door automatically. 

Vera came over to greet the guests. 
All sat down on the superbly comfort- 
able, helium-filled plastic couch that 
hovered a few feet off the floor in the 
living room. As they were seating 
themselves, the couch sank a Uttle 

"Before I forget," Paul Wilson said, 
"you were going to lend me your 
automatic pen, until I get a chance to 
change a tube in mine." 

"I'll get it," John said. "It's up- 

John was closer to the all-plastic 
vacuum lift than the all-plastic auto- 
matic stairway, so he took the lift up 
to the twelfth level of his apartment. 
He pressed the letters "PEN" on the 
keyboard of all the all-plastic Home 
Mini-Computer and watched through 
a cellophane window as a set of alpha- 
bet blocks was rearranged by rubber- 
ized suction motors to spell out the 
location of the object he sought. It 


John went over to closet 6, took out 
the automatic pen and because, hav- 
ing walked across the room, he was 
now closer to the all-plastic auto- 
matic stairway, took it downstairs. 
'Quite a device, this automatic 
pen," Paul Wilson said. "Truly a mar- 
vel of 1973!" 

Yes," John Smithers readily 
.j,.-ed. "This plastic, automatic pen 
is truly amazing. Through a eel- 
lophance window, one can see the in- 
terior, where a lifetime supply of a 
special kind of liquefiable plastic is 
kept. The special, liquefiable plastic 
is heated to its melting point by a 
small internal fUament; this filament 
is turned on by an internal miniature 
one-tube radio receiver respondmg to 
signals sent out by an internal, minia- 
ture one-tube radio transmitter; this 
transmitter, placed beside the point, is 
energized only when pressure is actu- 
ally placed on the point. This assures 
that the plastic will be Uquid-and 
flow onto the paper-only when ac- 
tuaUy needed. Since the plastic is so- 
Udified when not in use, elunmated 
forever is the danger of the pen leak- 

mg in , say, a shirt or suit pocket.' 

"Why, I can remember way, way 
back," Paul said,"when pens used to 
leak all the time!" 

'\rhingssure are different now in 
1973!" Joha&Bithers said, grinning. 

"Yes," John Smithers remarked 
philosophically. "I'm afraid to say 
it, but we are getting on in years." 

"That remuids us," Alice Wilson 
said proudly. "Today is our anniver- 
sary! Paul and I were married just 
forty-seven years ago this evening- 
and how the world has changed since 

"Alice wore one of the first ceUo- 
phane wedding dresses," Paul Wilson 
said, beaming proudly. 

The conversation continued ami- 
ably for a few minutes. Then, sud- 
denly, Ahce Wilson broke into it by 
saying to her husband, "Can we tell 
them now?" 

"I suppose now is as good a time as 
any!" Paul Wilson said, smiling at his 

"Tell us what?" Vera inquired. 
"Well," Paul said, "Ahce and I were 
thinking. At 97, we are starting to get 
along in years and we thought, if we're 
ever going to have that faniily we talked 
about, we'd better start now!" 
"What have you decided on?" 
"Well," Paul continued, "Alice 
wanted a girl and I wanted a boy, 
so we let the all-plastic, two-tube 
heads-or-tailed generator decide. 
Alice won." 

"I told him we'll have a boy next 
tune," Alice said, smiling. 

"And, anyway," Paul added, 
"Alice let me have my choice of eye 
color and hair color. I picked blue 
hair and orange eyes-my favorite 
color combmation." 

"And what about skin color?" 
John asked. 

"Well," Ahce said, "I preferred Ori- 
ental, but my husband wanted black. 
So it was back to the all-plastic, two- 
tube heads-or-tails generator!" 

"Paul won this time," Ahce said. 
"Black it is!" 

"At least I won something!" Paul 
said, good-naturedly. 

"Do you remember," John inter- 
jected, "when, long ago, some people 
actually thought it was inferior to be 

"Yes," Paul said. "Thank goodness 
that, in 1973, we enjoy an enlightened 
world of eternal peace and brotherhood 
for all!" 

"Do you remember," Vera said, "in 
the old days, when women had to car- 
ry their children for nine months m- 
stead of nine days?" 

"Yes," Ahce said, "Of course, now 
we can control the rate of any bodily 
process by the appropriate speed-up 
or slow-down chocolates-whose 
coatings, incidentaUy.are organic 
derivatives of plastic." 

"In 1973," Paul Wilson jointed out, 
"we don't need luck. Tha. cs to mod- 
ern science, there hasn'.t been a birth 
defect in decades!" 

"Yes," John Smithers repeated, 
slapping his knee again, "we certainly 
are lucky to be living in 1973! 

"You know," Vera said, "that 
starts me thinking. Tell me, of aU the 
wonders of 1973, which one do you 
think is the greatest?" 

"A good question, Paul Wilson 
said. He pondered a moment. "I 
guess 1 might say it's our plastic air 
cars with helium-filled tires, rub- 
berized exteriors, cellophane win- 
dows, and plastic, suction-type mo 
tors." He paused a moment. "Or per- 
haps its our all-plastic skyscrapers." 

"What do you think, darling?" Vera 
asked her husband. 

"Well," John Smithers answered, 
"I think it's die medical devices. I 

felt pain recently-at (he History >Iu- 
si;um, where they had this special 
tooth set up~and let me tell you, it 
was horrible!" 

"Of course," he hastened to add, 
'no one here on Earth, or on any of 
the colonized planets feels it any- 

"Speaking of the colonized planets,' 
Alice said, "I think they're the most 
amazing thing about 1973. The way 
we've been able to send families to 
Mars and Venus and have them live 
long, happy lives up there in all- 
plastic communities!" 

"I understand they're even mining 
raw cellophane on Venus now," Paul 
said. "It should help bring prices 
down even further-although, of 
course, in 1973 every human being 
can easily afford anything and every- 
thing he wants!" 

"True, John said. "Poverty, want, 
crime, and class differences have been 
wiped out for years. And, thanks to 
the advanced state of 1 973 psychol- 
ogy, even the most menial jobs are 
made to seem fascinating!" 

"Say, Vera J' John said at length. 
"I just realizedlomething." 

"What's that, my darling?" Vera 

"You never answered your own 
question. You never told us what you 
consider to be the most amazing thing 
about living in 1973!" 

"You're right," Vera admitted. She 
paused a moment, looking at the thin 
pinpricks of starUght peeping through 
the cellophane ceiling. TTie refreshing 
Canadian air felt good against her 

"Wen?" John asked. 

"I think," Vera said, "it's the Met- 
ford-Jorgenson equation." 

"Why yes!" Alice said. I should 
have thought of that myself! You 
mean equation number three, of 
course-the one which proves mathe- 
matically that there is a God!" 

"It was discovered only two years 
ago," Vera said, " in 1971. It's meant 
a great deal of comfort to me and to 
all our fellow human beings." 

"Yes," John said, "and when the 
proper factors are substituted, the 
equation even yields the fact that this 
God is all-powerful and aU-loving and 
that there is a purpose and meaning 
to the universe." 

"To think," Paul said, "philosophers 
and theologians have pondered this 
question for ages. But only in 1973 
do we have a mathematics advanced 
enough to provide the answer!" 

"I wonder," Vera said thoughtfully, 
"what the world will be Uke for our 

"Well," Paul said, "for one thing, 
it will have even greater wonders- 
wonders we can't even imagine now, 
in 1973." 

"I read that, by 1979, they expect 
the first all-cellophane spaceship," 
John interjected. 

"And, "Alice added, "one scientist 
even believe that, someday, we'U be 
able to create an entire cellophane 
planet and send it out into space for 
people to live on. Then people on one 
side of the world will be able to see 
the people on the other!" 

"But, best of all," Jim said, "one 
group of researchers now thinks that, 
by the eariy 1980's, they should be 
able to turn light rays into ceUophane 
and gravity into plastic!" 

Vera nestled her head into her hus- 
band's shoulder. Her hair tickled 
pleasantly and he smiled. I don t 
care about tomorrow," she said, cas- 
ting her eyes back upwards to the stars. 
"Sure things are bound to get more 
advanced-but I'm happy enough to; 
■ day, living in the paradise of 1 9/3.

150 new students descend upon SMC campus 

The ranks of SMC have swelled 
,i, ^oje this semester with an increase 
if ISO more students and more are ar- 
iving each day. As of late Tuesday, the 
imoUment stood at 1446 including 31 
indents on the Orlando campus acco rding 
lArno Kutzner, Director of Admissions 
id Records. Tliis marks the greatest 
lux of new students to SMC between 
mesters in the colleges history. 

The 1446 students does not in- 

lude an additional 43 academy seniors 

iho are expected to take a course for 

credit through the SMC extention 
logiams offered at Forest Lake Academy, 
rgia-Cumberland Academy and 
lurelbrook School. 

Dr. Kutrner stated that he ex- 
its the enrollment to level off in the 
[eighborhood of 1500 students. There 
ire about 200 first semester students 

10 did not return for second semester. 
[esaid that this was the normal drop 
ilween semesters of this group. Kutzner 
longht that only about 25% transferred 


students now reside in the three 
lonnitoiies. Thatcher and Jones Hall house 
'564 women and there are 362 men living 

The efficient and organized manner 
iWhich registration took place this sem- 
ler contrasted markedly from those 
iiienced by SMC students in the past. 
Kutzner attributes the smoother oper- 
[on to the students being more familiar 
the system and more staff and 
ipment at registration. He hopes to 
ieditc registration even more this coming 
by reducing the registration time to a 
and a half. Dr. Kutzner said that he 
not want to make registration to hasty 
luse each student needs sufficient time 
work out his schedule with his advisor. 

When questioned about the possibility 
Jpie-registration in the future, he thought 

11 eady registration presents more problem: 
111 10 students and administration than 

'Ives. Dr. Kutzner said that one of the 
%» problems that the admissions office 
"penences is dealing with the 400 to 500 
"fiulc changes that occur in student 
^&ms in the first ten days of classes. 
lUd emphasize that he is open to any 
l8"tion from students which might 
"*« for a better registration. 

Dr. Futcher, Academic Dean, counsels Darlene Griffith during a smoothly operated second semester registration.

Those seeking more interesting 
chapel programs may be attracted by 
a pilot program which will feature 
tight different topics by the various 
departments and will be initiated at 
chapel-time next Tuesday. 

Bob Zima, SA vice-president, 
said that this new chapel system has a 
. ;wo-fold aim; 1) To provide an oppor- 
tunity for a greater exchange of ideas 
and activities through the aid of groups, 
organizations, and individuals; 2) To 
■provide a system where the S A can 
possibly meet more of the individual's 
interests than can be done with the 
present system. 

If interest is shown in this type 
of chapel, and if it serves the needs of 
the student body, the program will be 
continued-possibly once a month. 

Attendance will be taken, just 
like a regular chapel-maybe even stricter 
than chapel, Zima warns, because the SA 
wishes to impress the importance of being 
there even if the situation is different. 

To those who may be apathetic 
Zima issues a special message, "Your SA 
is undertaking this experiment hoping 
to serve you better. If no interest or 
support is shown iii this, don t expect 
it to happen again." 

A sample of the eight subjects 
which will be presented runs Uke this: 

1) Mr. Delmar Lovejoy, physical 
education professor, wiU be leading a 
group in the physical education center. 

Students should come prepared to do 
excercises and other things. 

2) Dr. Frank Knittel and Kenneth 
Spears, dean of student affairs, will be 
holding a forum to field questions from 
the students. 

3) The Home Economics Depart- 
ment will have a panel of individuals 
representing various ethnic groups to 
discuss and compare their cultural life 

4) And last, but certainly not 

least. Dr. Melvin Campbell, chairman 
of the Chemistry Department, will be 
posing as an Indian guru as he fills in 
his group on the philosophy of Hinduism 
which he finds very similar to our Ad- 
ventist philosophy. 

The locations, topics, and more 
for each of these "mini-chapels" will 
be posted conspicuously prior to the

Three SA offices 
up for grabs 

On January 29-30, a special Student 
Association election will be held to iTll 
various vacantcies that have arisen in the 
organizational structure of the S.A. The 
vacant offices consist of S.A. Vice-Pres- 
ident, Secretary of the Student Assoc- 
iation, and Editor of the Southern Ac- 
cent, as well as several Senate positions. 
These geographic Senatorial precints 
are as follows: Precint 4, Thatcher 
Hall rooms 253-298; Precint 5, Tha- 
tcher Hall rooms 300-348; Precint 8,

Talge Hall rooms 201-236; Precint 14, 
Talge Hall rooms 302-336; and two 
village representatives. 

Anyone wishing to seek election 
to these positions should submit a pet- 
ition at the S.A. office with a minumum 
number of signatures totaling 20% of 
the constituents in a given senatorial 
district. To be eligible for election, the 
student must have been enrolled on a , 
college campus for at least nine weeks, 
and have a cumulative Gf .A. of 2. 50. 
The filing period will be from Jan-

A renaissance 

TTie editorial job is not to cater to every varying 
frame of reference on this campus. Neither is it their 
job to alienate themselves from the mainstream of 
thought to become the single crying voice in the wilder- 

In shaping a Collegiate newspaper, one of the 
most important functions is to provide a sounding- 
board for student expressions. It is our hope that the 
Accent can be a stimulus for thought and a place for 
exchange of opinion and ideas through letters and 
essays. Criticisms are needed because editors need 
food for thought and if criticisms are not heard the 
editors either become over confident or apathitic about 
their publication. 

The Sour/ier"/lcce"f is dedicated to the con- 
stant improvement and building up of Southern 
Missionary College or it strives to uphold Seventh- 
day Aventist principles. 

As editors those are some of the joumalites 
practices we subscribe to as the basis of our newspaper.

not directly related to life on this campus in order to 
extend your vision beyond the boundaries of Southern

Some things remain unchanged. We will follow

The Silent Coup 

It was hideous yet it was not visible. It was 
malodorous yet it was not traceable by smell. It 
gur^ed and bubbled its way through mankind in a 
quiet, unobtrusive way. It laid waste a multitude of 
blessings and talents that would have obliterated 
the inconsistencies of life. 

It sought to repress any form of striving or 
doing or aiding or caring. It never sought its victim, 
it was merely there if a person wished to imbibe. 
And, as it made itself more available its popularity grew 
among men. 

People began to breathe and wallow in its 
refuge and found it secure. It seeped through each 
empty pore and inhabited each cubicle of potential 
in each individual allowing for its admission. And, 
as it entered into man, it siezed his inner organs and 
made them cold and numb>voiding him of feeling. 
It lowered the clenched fist formally raised 
against gross injustices. It relaxed the thought of 
sincerely complimenting another's accomplishments 
or earnest efforts. It dissolved the glowing smile 
into a meaningless line on a forgotten face. 

Hie walking corpses grew in number and 
multiplied and in a New York City alley a lonesome 
junkie scrawls out his epitaph on a filthy wall-APATHY

"You have to get me out of 
here," he said, trembling like a scared 
rabbit . 

"Why?" I asked him. 

"She's after me," he said. "You 
have to walk me to tlie dorm." 

"Okay," I said, and proceeded to 
escort my six-foot-three-inch buddy 
past the girl that was waiting outside 
the door. Then he told me how he had 
been trapped. 

A girl had come in and told him 
she was working on the yearbook and 
that she needed to know how to spell 
his name. Wanting to be helpful, he 
gave her his full name. She thanked 
him and promptly left the room. 
Standing right outside the door, she 
met anotlier girl and said a little too 
loudly, "Here's his name, you go and 
ask him." 

Hearing that, my friend realized 
that he had just been tricked. He was 
in this state of shock when 1 found 

Another fellow. Bill, had a ter- 
rible feeling that a girl in calculus class 
was on his trail. His suspicions were 
soon justified when he found her in 
the Ubrary studying at the table where 
he usually studied. In disgust he went 
back to the dorm to avoid the trap 
that had been set for liim. The next 
day Bill found it very convenient to 
have one-day flu and stayed in his 
room all day, with hopes that his 
pursuer would look for easier game. 

As a safety precaution. Bill 
made it a point to be at least ten minutes 
late for his calculus class the following 
day to avoid any fatal contacts before 
class. The first one to notice him slip 
into the class, of course, was Judy, his 

Instantly, Bill knew he was still in 
the danger zone. He picked a seat near 
the door and sat there with his eyes 
starched in their sockets. The page of 
his text was a blur. It seemed like 
hours before the class bell rang. When 
it did ring. Bill was out of the door 
and down the hall to the men's rest 
room as if it were really something 
urgent. He waited there for a full ten 
minutes. Cautiously, he stepped into 
the hail and made his way back to 
the dorm. 

Bill studied in his room again thai I 
afternoon, and except for mealtime, 
was safe until the next calculus class. 
Again he managed to come late to 
class and find a seat near the door. 
Tliis time, however. Bill was not so 
lucky. About halfway througli the 
period, the fellow next to him handed 
him a folded sheet of paper. Bill, 
thinking it was something he had 
dropped, unfolded it. "Please wait foi I 
me after class, okay? - Judy," it 

Knowing now that he could nolB 
the bathroom trick again, Bill was 
frantic. Then the bell rang. As a last 
resort. Bill asked a. couple of buddies 
to stick close to him wliile he waited. 
She came out of the classroom. Wilhi 
smile of victory already spreading 
across her face, she approached Bill 
and liis buddies. "Hi," she said. Then I 
with a flash of crimsou across her fact | 
and fire in her eyes, she blurted out, 
"BiU, would you take me to the 

"Yes," he said.

Everything you always 
wanted to know 
about discipline 

*but were afraid to ask-A- 

Spoon River 

Yes and No 

Poetry and folk song created an 
(ening of dramatic moments when the 
Jpha-Omega Players of Dallas, Texas, 
[resented the stage adaptation of Edgar 
:e Masters' Spoon River Anthology 
SI Saturday night in the physical ed- 
[ition center. 

Adapted by actor-playwright 
larles Aidman, Spoon River came to 
*gedale by way of Broadway, where 
.was produced to glowing reviews in 
i63. But this production, directed by 
lexel H. Riley, founder of the Alpha- 
nega Repertory Company, lacked the 
atkle and dramatic unity that the 
roadway company must have impar- 
W to the unwieldy script to sustain it 
foi lis brief 14-week run. 

Any theatre group would be ch- 
llltnged by the considerable task of 
Healing a unified play out of Masters' 
American folk poem involving, in its 
femalized version, 70 inhabitants of 
liclional Spoon River, 111. lying sep- 
"alely in the hill-top cemetary and 
speaking their separate epitaphs. 

Though the gossip and confessions 
o'lliese small-town characters unites 
some ways, the dramatization 
stories tends more to be an 

of theirs 

Wning of individual two-minute read- 

is than 

an evening of theatre. 

The Alpha-Omega troupe's per- 
'Wmance emphasized that lack of coh- 
yn fosters lack of coherence. The 
f"' '"^to'S were unable to overcome 
™ disunity of the script through their 
"mwork in production. And indiv- 
""'lly. each merely had his or her mo- 
'nis of believability, stage presence, 
™»'amatic intensity. 
J. They proved perhaps a dozen 
™"' '" portraying the 70 characters, 
, "ley could be quite convincing and 
P"smatic. But their marked inconsis- 
h rt'^"^"'''' ^^^ production from 
B drawn together, and the audience 
Pbsing drawn fully into it. 

ftraed little by props, lighting, 
'™stumes, and not at all by set, 
»«ors were literally left to their 
ntesources: vocal inflection, 
™ expression, stance, gesture, and 
'oinime. Obviously, versatUity is 

I Yet, only one of the four. Ken 
P^.was able to unlock the audience'! 
"Bnation, so that they could see the 

distinct personalities of gambler Tom 
Beatty, Negro Shack Dye, attorney and 
crook John Church, the village idiot, a 
Jewish clothier, a local dandy, a Rebel 
ioldier, the village atheist, and hen-pecked 

Other memorable moments were 
provided by Rhonda Wallace, com- 
promised German kitchen maid and 
portrayal of Anne Rutledge, Abraham 
Lincoln's ftrst love. Also notable were 
Allyn Winslow's inspired oculist, and 
Alex Bond's cockeyed poetess Minerva 
Jones, and young Chinese girl Yee Bow. 

Mr. Aidman obviously hoped to 
M„ify his adaptation through the use 
of folk music as background and "bridge." 
Tunes like "Times Are Gettin' Hard 
Boys," "Who i-Cjiows Where I'm Going," 
and "Jimmy Crack Corn," along with new 
folk songs composed by Aidman and Naorm 
Hirshhorn, did add interest, though not 
unity, to the production. But the audience 
■ould listen with unninching pleasure only 
to those songs rendered by Alex Bond. 

The enthusiasm of all four players 
was commendable. Though their charac- 
terizations suffered by and large, it rs 
to their credit that they managed to pro- 
ject (when they could be heard distinctly) 
the emotional atmosphere of small-town 
life and death. 

When Spoon River appeared on 
Broadway, Time magazine observed. There 
are three fixed ideas that Americans Ilk to 

entertain about smaU towns . D they "= 
bucoically .dyllic; 2) they stunt hwart 
and twist people's lives; 3) they harbor an 
ll^credible amount of hanky-panky behind 
their primly drawn curtains. 

For those who have not spent their 
lives in small-town America, this production 
prided moments of insight. For those of 

us who have, the performance Provided 
moments of catharsis. Despite occasional 

forced theatricality, the Alpha-omega 
Players had, at least, a sense of the reality 
they were enacting. ^^^^^^^

"Discipline." That word conjures 
up different images in different student's 
minds? To some, it is a tear-faced 
youngster bending over touching his 
toes while a stern, gray-haired principal 
paddles the unfortunate's up-ended rear. 

The Southern Missionary College 
administration is trying to change that 

In separate interviews with the dean 
of student affairs, Mr. Kenneth Spears, 
and the chairman of the Judiciary Committee 
Dr. Melvin Campbell, many important facts 
and philosophies came into view. 

"We (those on the Judiciary Committee 
are interested in being inconsistent," said Dr. 
Campbell. "Now 1 really don't believe 
that that's the case-1 don't believe that 
students really want us to be consistent. 
What they really want is to be considered 
as individuals." 

Dr. Campbell went on to explain 
that family background, the student's 
program, and what he could be in the 
context of the situation are all considered 
before some of the "corrective measures" 
are used to help him fit into an Adventist 
hfestyle. In support of this statement, 
the committee has come up with some 
alternatives to suspension or expulsion. 
"In previous years it's been either 
'Go home' or 'Citizenship probation,' " 
said Dr. Campbell. "Now everyone knows 
that citizenship probation is nothing. So 
there's too big a gap. You either do 
nothing or send them home-that's not 
fair. So we've been trying to fill the gap 
sometimes with 'delayed suspension'- 
allowing the student to finish the semester 
and then say, 'Hey, look, your lifestyle 
and our lifestyle are just incompatible- 
leave. You can maybe apply again later 
after this semester or next year-stay out 
for a semester.' Then there are other 
ideas," Dr. Campbell adds. 

These other ideas are "counseling 
programs" and guidelines that the 
committee feels especially useful. For 
instance, if someone has been misbe- 
having and it seems that his car has been 
a contributing factor, then he may have 
to park his car, give his keys to the dean, 
and let the car sit awhile. Or, he may be 
told to take the car home and leave it 
there. Then maybe a student wUl be 
campus-bound for a specified length of 
"'"°' Apart from SMC's Student Handbook 
for the •73-'74 school year, which explams 
in great detad what one is disciplined for 
hot is it determined what a student needs, 

expulsion or "corrective measures; 

Dean Spears believes It depends on 
the problem: "A lot of judgment is 
involved here." Some considerations 
are the student's influence on his ac- 
quaintances or other studems. the mag- 

^tude of the problem (whether it s a 
pattern or just an isolated mcident), and 
if the student has been honest. 

Dr Campbell stated, "I know this 
can raise some hard feehngs, treating one 
dOTerently than another, because we have 
to "subjective. We (the Committee) 
have to perform value judgments. 

"I'd like to add that these pro- 
ceedings are very, very much of an 
emotional strain. 1 just don t think 
people realize what you're going through 
when you're very close to the student. 
You see, what makes it doubly hard IS 
when it's kids you know, you ve had 

in your class-you like them. 

Beware, though, fellow students. 

Dean Spears and Dr. Campbell want no 
one to think that the disciplining bodies 
of this campus are all "heart and no 
brains." Dean Spears notes that, "You're 
not going to make everyone happy" and 
Dr. Campbell said, "When they (students) 
come to us they're potentially out-they 
could just as well be asked to leave as not. 
The Judiciary Committee is the last stage 
for the students, when the crisis has built 
up, such as drinking, falsification of leaves 
and so on-when something drastic must 
be done." 

Dean Spears, in reply to the question. 
Are kids disciplined on hearsay?" stated 
that when he's given a report, he will call 
the student in for a personal, private coun- 
sel, but he doesn't discipline on hearsay. 
He waits till he gets facts, or the truth 
from the erring student himself. 

Why do students have to be discip- 

In the course of their conversation, 
Dean Spears and Dr. Campbell consis- 
tently mentioned "Christian principals," 
"policy," "lifestyle," "guidelines," and 
influence." The Student Handbook 
states that SMC contains "unique features 
which characterize the college," and that 
the college has "distinct objectives." 
Each "distinct objective" is listed in the 
SMC " '73-'74 Bulletin." 

On page one is outlined the 
'Seventh-day Adventist "Statement of 
Objectives." These two statements 
outline the "unique features" of the 

The major consideration is that 
this is a Seventh-day Adventist college 
dedicated to the advancement of God's 
work, thereby necessitating a genuine 
Christian atmosphere on campus. The 
knowledge that this college is unique 
should explain the "why" for the 
existing rules and regulations. 

Sometimes these rules are found 
to be "dated"-that is they may not be 
relevant to the existing situation. When 
asked if the student has a right to request 
change. Dean Spears stated that the 
student should go through "proper 
channels," such as the Student Associa- 
tion Senate. He added that, "If a person 
disagrees with policy which is based on 
principles and standards, he has the^^ 
right to disagree, but not to violate." 

Although a number of cases of 
misbehaving students have come before 
the Judiciary Committee, this year. Dr. 
Campbell can only remember of one 
that was asked to withdraw immediately,^ 
(there are others on "delayed suspension"). 

It should be remembered that 
discipline" is relative, it's subjective. 
Discipline deals with emotions, abstract 
entities such as, "good," "evil," "love," 
and others; Christian philosophies; the 
reputations of both the student and the 
coUege; and the responsibUity of traimng 
and educating young people. 

As long as time goes on and this 
college exists, there wUl be students 
leaving here sometimes bitter, some- 
times thankful, sometimes indifferent. 

Perhaps someday you may And /""'^^'f

Just before Christmas, James Hannum', 
Director of WSMC Broadcasting, received 
a phone call from a Chattanooga resident. 
"I recently moved in the area from Florida, 
and find your programming more enjoyable 
than anything else in the area. I would 
like to help the station in a substanUal 
way and will be sending you $ 1 ,000 worth 
of Dupont stock." 

Hannum, of course, was exuberant. 
The gentleman had previously joined WSMCS 
Month Club ( a group of people who give at 
least S5.00 a month to WSMC), but being 
interested in the cultural programming of 
WSMC he decided to give a special Christmas 
gift to the station. 

"As people of our area hear more and 

get more participation," says Jim Walters, 
Director of Development. 

Walters summed his behef about 
WSMC money-raising in this manner, "1 
believe people expect to be able to pay for 
what they enjoy and we'ie just giving them 
an opportunity."

Dr. Ashton to perform 
with Chatt. Sym. 

Dr. Bruce Ashton, associate pro- 
fessor of music at SMC, is slated to appear 
in a concert with the Chattanooga 
Symphony of Dr. Richard Cormier, next 
Tuesday evening. 

Dr. Ashton, who is the only pianist 
for the Symphony this season, will per- 
form in the Conductor's Concert, and his 
renditions will include the Concerto 
Grosso by YAoch\Les Djinns, by Franck; 
Schubert's Unfinished Symphony; and 

Di. Ashton's invitation to play for 
the Chattanooga Symphony is the result 
of a joint concert by the Chattanooga 
Youth Symphony and the SMC Orchestra 
at SMC last year. 

The Symphony Association does 
not frequently pick musicians from this 

area, as local artists are generally not box 
office material. . 

Dr. Ashton, on the SMC faculty 
since 1968, is serving his second term as 
president of the Chattanooga Music 
Teachers Association. His career has 
encompassed soloist performances witii 
the CCM Orchestra and the Congress of 
Strings Orchestra and recitals in various 
parts of the United States. 

He holds the Master of Music de- 
gree from American Conservatory and 
Doctor of Musical Arts from the 
University of Cincinnati. 

Tickets for the concert may be 
purchased at the Symphony office, 730 
Cherry St. (267-8583), or thiough any 
member of the Symphony Guild. 

Senate abolishes two SA offices 

Proposals by Senator Marsh to 
change the social vice president's 
structural relationship to the SA sparked 
considerable debate in Monday night's 
meeting of the Student Senate. 

The action followed the aboUsh- 
ing of the positions of Social Committee 
chairman and Programs Committee chair- 
man after those two officers resigned. 
This leaves the social vice president cur- 
rently in direct control of both cortmiittees. 

The Senate also decided that the 
present Recreation Committee chairman 
has been unable to adequately cover the 
job for the women and village students. 
That office was therefore abolished, and 

in its place two new positions were cieilw 
men's sports coordinator and women s 
sports coordinator. 

Officers to fill these posts are to 
be elected in the dormitories. Village 
students will be eligible to run and vote 
for these offices. 

The Senate also voted upon ap- 
pointees to fill vacancies left by Senawn | 
Bradley, Oswald, McClarty, and Fiipi. 
The new Senators are Frank Potts, 
Melanie Thompson, John Huskins, ana 
Joni Mill.

a move or I'll blow your brains out." 

He went on to say that he needed 
the money for a "fix" and continually 
repeated, "I'm not kidding, I'll kill you," 
constantly using profane language. He

leather chairs. For more informal dining, 
one may visit the Terrace Room. The 
40-foot waterfall, surrounded by palms 
and planters, is only one of the ingre- 
dients that helps to create its Tivoli 
garden effect. 

The sound of tinkling glass wind 
chimes fills Crystal Room where customers 
are seated under 100 antique crystal 
chandeUers. Fmally, the Fountain Room 
and the Director's Room are designed 
for smaller and more personal parties 

The luncheon menu contains five 
sandwiches, priced from 95 cents to 
$2.85. They are served with soup 
potatoes, and a lazy susan tray offering 
homemade relish, cottage cheese, apple 
butter, and cole slaw. 

For supper one may choose from 
four entrees, priced at $2.95 to $4 50 
The main dish comes with an appetizer 
lazy susan', vegetable dishes of beets 
peas and mushrooms, and potatoes 
•corn fritters, and a grand finale of home 
made ice cream. 

An extra side attraction occurs 
in the formal gardens every evening at 
6:00 when the old-fashioned lamplighter 

accompanied by a Dixieland jazz band 
Ignites the 40 gas torchlights encircling 
the garden. 

Several specialty shops can be 
found leading from the dining areas. 
The Sarsaparilla and Sweet Shop sells 
all sorts of delicacies for the sweet 
tooth. For the model railroad en- 
thusiast, there is a shop with model 
train accessories and even a consulting 
service. 'Edward B. Harvey, Goldsmith' 
handcrafts his own gold and silver jew- 
elry while the Southern Bell Shop of- 
fers antiques of every kind. 

Especially attractive in the Christ- 
mas season is the Doll House, display- 
ing for sale novelty and character dolls, 
all hand-made. And the Depot Company 
Store offers anything from an actual 
railroad spike to engineer's overalls. 

General admission is free at the 
Chattanooga Choo Choo, located about 
two blocks north of the Market Street 
exit off I - 24 in Chattanooga.

Petition filed against re-zoning action 

Last summer numerous tracts of land 
in CoUegedale were re-zoned, because 
buildings had been erected contrary to 
existing zoning regulations, and to 
facilitate further progress of construction 

Included in the re-zoning was a 200 by 
500 foot lot to be re-zoned to commercial 
at the southwest corner of Moore Road 
and Camp Road, adjacent to a proposed 
housing development by Kim-De construe 
tion company of CoUegedale. However, 
several local citizens have charged that 
the fact that this one plot would be zoned 
commercial in a residential area was not 
stressed to the public. 

Notices of the zoning heanng were 
posted and the required three meetings, 
two weeks apart, were held in the 
CoUegedale courtroom. After the last 
meeting, a vote was taken and the tracts 
e re-zoned. 

Later, after it was discovered that a 
7-1 1 type convenience food store was 
proposed for the site at the corner of | 

Moore Road and Camp Road, a public 
furor ensued. Numerous reasons were 
given against the commercial use of this 
tract: increased traffic, devaluation of 
adjacent property, danger to school 
children due to the increased traffic, etc. 
Petitions for a re-hearing were ckculated 
nd many people signed them. 
I Legally, these petitions had no grounds 
for action. According to the Hamilton 
County laws regarding zoning re-hearings, 
any petition for a re-hearing must be 
instigated by property owners living within 
300 feet of the property in question. 

Kim-De, who would build the store 
1 and then leased it to a franchise, already 
i had their building permit and could 
legally proceed with construction. How- 
r, they agreed to another public hear- 

ing which was held on Nov. 26 m the 
CoUegedale courtroom. 

During the hearing, many local rest- I 
dents' objections to the proposed store 
were refuted. For instance, a new city 
ordinance requires any company, person, 
etc which would tend to create a potential 
traffic hazard by erecting any commercral 
interest, to install proper traffic signals 
at their own expense, thus, a solution to 
the traffic problern. 

At the end of the meeting a straw vote 
was taken and the outcome was about 
three to one against the proposed store. 
The matter has been given over to the 
planning commission. It not appears 
that the interested parties decided not to 
go against public opinion, and the 
store's construction is now being planned. 

Since as of yet no definite plans have 
been formulated, all that can be said at 
the present time is that the tract will

Talge, as well as S45.50 for all the re- 
sidents of Jones Hall, it would be easily 
seen thai a sizeable sum is brought in 
each month. The question is, what 
happens to this? 

Mr. Robert Mills, business manager 
of SMC, said, "We look at the dormitory 
from two directions. One part of the 
dormitory operation we think of as a 
hotel, ilic pii) sical quarters where 
the students reside, and the expense of 
running the hotel part is the electricity, 
desk clerk, janitorial care, etc. The other 
section is the dean section; that is. the 
employment of the deans, a.ssistant deans, 
resident assistants, and the others that 
work with them. The dean section is 
quite costly because we have to have 
qualified, educated, and experienced 
people to be deans in order to provide 

the proper counseling and guidance fac- 

Mr. Mills went on to say, "We must 
recognize that in an institution of any 
type, all of the various departments ought 
to be able to make their was financially. 
A few years back when it was decided to 
build a new women's residence hail and 
to allow the men to use Talge Hall where 
■the women then resided, it was also de- 
cided that dorm charges should be ad- 
justed to not only pay for the expenses of 
operation encountered, but also for the 
cost of the buildings themselves. For in- 
stance, when someone builds and rents a 
house, he charges not only for what it 
costs him to keep it in repair, but the 
cost of building the house in addition. 
This theory was advanced and approved 
by the Board. 

"This answers the question of what 
happens to any money the college gets 
above the cost of operating the dormit- 
ory in a given year, because it goes to- 
wards the Uquidation of the enormous 
dept encountered in building Thatcher 

Let us now consider what actually 
happened during the fiscal year from 
July 1, 1972 through June 30, 1973. The 
total dorm expense for the men 's dor- 
mitory was $153,000. For both women's

No*- that the year 1974 is in full swing and all

Contrary to popular notion, the mark of a

grade point average or makmg the Dean s Lis . 
Sgh these very worthwhile pursuits should 
never be discounted. , 

Much of your success or failure at SMC can t 
be measured by a test or determined by a stan- 
dard deviation curve; rather it will depend on 
how well you can relate to and how tolerant 
you are of others. j .i. , 

Long before now vou have discovered that 
SMC is by no means perfect. How you relate to 
these imperfections will determine to a great 
degree how happy your existence here will be. 

Take into consideration that the people 
responsible for making things run smoothly are, 
after all people subject to the same imperfections 
that you all other human beings are sub- 
ject to With this realization in mind, your 
dealings with others will be greatly enhanced. 

If you make suggestions with a spffit ot help- 
fuhiess and the warmth of Christian Love your 
views will not only be appreciated, but will wel- 
comed and valued.

I'll survive." 

(Several hours later. .. ) 

Sandy nearly dropped her bowl of 40% 
Bran Flakes and apple sauce as Judy threw 
open the door and bounded triumphantly 
into the room. 

•'He accepted?" Sandy questioned, 
sitting anxiously and trying to salvage 
what was left of her meal. 

"Nope-he wasn't tliere! Well, actually 
he was there for a little while, but before 
1 could flag him down, the fire alarm went 
off and he ran out. . . I didn't know he was 
on the fire department. Well, that's that. 
He had his chance." . 

"Oh , Judy, you've just got to ask hrni.

an extra sheet of paper she scribbled 
"Bill - please wait for me after class. Jud," 
Class was finally ending, and Judy was 
trying to think of a clever way to ask Bill 
to the banquet. Walking reluctantly out 
the door, Judy saw Bill standing there, 
obviously still a little pale from the flu 
trying to be his usual self joking with (iu 
boys. "Great. . Well, 1 don't want to

that was two hours ago. 1 think he's

Dear Editor, 

As a visitor to the SMC campus, I would 
like to make a comment on the Campus 
Kitchen. I placed my order and sat down 
to wait. After about 30 minutes, two 
other groups of people, who had been 
there long before me.had to get up and go 
ask for their orders, which were ready and 
getting cold. One family came in and 
waited so long at the ordering desk, they 
finally decided it was closed. They all 
got a salad and some potato chips and 
sat down. After waiting an additional 

half-hour, I finally asked for my order. 
They then decided to tell me they didn I 
have part of my order, and would I 
care to reorder? 1 waited another ten 
minutes, asked again; and got my order 
"to go" without a bag, with the ex- 
planation they didn't have any. Thrs 
was during Christmas vacation, and 1 
would hate to be a student and have to 
be subjected to such treatment.

Southern Accent 




The Accent is proud to sponsor its 
first contest of '74. The contest 
theme of Valentine and young lovers 
is the Accents effort to have more 
students display their creative abilities. 
The contest is open to SMC students 
with a $10 winner take all cash prize 
for first" place. All entries must be 
done in black on white and be sub- 
mitted to the Accent no later than 
February 1. Contest judging will be 
done by Malcolm ChUders, instructor 
of art and Janice Wuersllin, ^ccen/ 
art director. 

Those wishing to participate in the 
talent show are asked to suggest a building 
which could be used as a backdrop for their 
act. For example, a musical number could 
be done in a music store, a gymnastic routine 
in a health spa, a quartet number in a barber 
shop and so on. An apartment building, a 
restaurant, or a doctor's office are other 

Potential participants are asked to 
strive for variety and creativity in their 
acts. Only ten acts can be accepted for 
the show, so the better the act, the better 
the chances of acceptance. 

The talent-screening committee states 
that though some vocals are desired, there 
are usually an overabundance of vocal 
entrants, and because of this, acceptance 
will be harder to obtain. Participants are 
asked to consider readings, skits, comedienne 
routines, gymnastics, instrumental, comedy 
vocals— anything light-hearted and wholesome. 

Some teachers have expressed willingness 
to give extra credit to their students for acts 
performed in the Talent Show which could 
relate to their class, such as oral interpretation 
class. Participants should consult their 
teachers about this possibility. 

Cash awards will be given to winners 
as well as $10 to all acts accepted. The 
grand prize-winning act will receive a 
cash award as well as having its name 
engraved on a trophy to be placed in 
the student center. 

Potential entrants may tryout be- 
fore a new student screening committee 
from 7:30-8:30 p.m. on January 28, 7:30 
to 9:00 p.m. on January 29, and 7:30- 
9:30 p.m. on January 30 in the music 
building auditorium. Tryouts before 
the faculty screening committee and a 
final dress rehearsal will be held during 
the first week of February with exact 
times to be posted. 

Any students with questions or sug- 
gestions may contact Renee Schultz at

\Hi(y St. Louis, Mo. This article is 

"roledlro'n his book, "The Teaching 
tamenlary Science and Mathematics, " 
B May 1, 1969, by ^CC£- Reporter. 

Some time ago, I received a call 
L a coUeague who asked if I would 
\u referee on the grading of an ex- 
piation question. He was about to 
K a student a zero for his answer to 
Iphysics question, while the student 
jjed he should receive a perfect 
leand would if the system were not . 
upagainst the student. The in- 
[uclorand the student agreed to 
ijit this to an impartial arbiter, and 
iselected. 1 went to my coll- 
ie's office and read the examina- 
iiiquestion; 'Show how it is pos- 
|le to determine the height of a tall 
ding, with the aid of a barometer.' 
The student had answered, 
^ethe barometer to the top of the 

;, attach a long rope to it, 
Itrthe barometer to the street, and 
Ji bring it up, measuring the length of 
Irope. The length of the rope is the 

height of the building.' 

I pointed out that the student 
reaUy had a strong case for full credit 
since he had answered the question com- 
plete y and correctly. On the other hand. 
It full credit was given, it would well con- 
tribute to a high grade for the student in 
his physics course. A high grade is sup- 
posed to show competence in physics, 
but the answer did not confirm this. I 
suggested that the student have another 
*ry at answering the question. 1 wa^not 
surprised that my coUeague agreed, but 1 
was surprised that the student did. 1 
gave the student 6 minutes to answer 
the question, with the warning that his 
answer should show knowledge of phy- 
sics. At the end of 5 minutes he had not 
written anything. 1 asked if he wished to 
give up, but he said no. He had many 
answers to this problem; he was just 
thirking of the best one. 1 excused 
myself for interrupting him and asked 
him to please go on. In thenext minute 
he dashed off his answer which read: 

'Take the barometer to the top of 
the building and lean over the edge of the 
roof. Drop the barometer, timing its fall 
with a stopwatch. Then, using the formula 
S=l/2at2, calculate the height of the 

At this point, I asked my coll- 
eague if he would give up. He conceded, 
and 1 gave the student almost full credit. 

In leaving my colleague's office, 
1 recalled that the student had said he 
had other answers to the problem, so 
I asked him what they were. "Oh, yes," 
said the student. "There are many ways 
of getting the height of a tall building

with the aid of a barometer. For exam- 
ple, you could take the barometer out 
on a sunny day and measure the height 
of the barometer, the length of its sh- 
adow, and the length of the shadow of 
the building, and by the use of a sim- 
ple proportion, determine the height of 
the building."

aised in Riverside, Calif, and 
pnilergraciuate work at Humboldt 
,,f """^ty in California. He then 
r™ lo Fullerton State University, 

also in California, where he completed his 
Masters degree in art. 

Cycling, jogging, and back-packing are 
the favorite pastimes of Mr. Childers, who 
is an enthusiastic nature-lover. As he puts 
it, "With all the things God has given us to 
do, how can anyone be bored!" He also 
enjoys playing the guitar and banjo and, 
incidentally, would be interested in trading 
songs with a fellow banjo-player. 

McKee Library now has on exhibit 
seven drawings which compose Mr. Child- 
ers' master's project. Soon to be a finished 
suite often, the drawings, which are 
shown on French hand-made paper, require 
a month each for completion. 

As a new resident of Collegedale, Mr. 
Childers has been''out of California for a

people and the work, and hopes to become

Jones Hall said, "They're good. The 
whole idea is that we get together 
and worship God as a family, and it 
we have to run off to the neighbors

asked how they will effect the girls 
of Jones Hall, if any, her response 
was "We will be and feel closer to- 
gether. The girls can be more sensi- 
tive to the problems here. Mrs. 
Eldred also says that "The girls are 
very willing to participate in the 
worships at Jones." 

Edna Scott, Resident Assistant, 
says "I like them. It is much more 
convenient. 1 think it is very good 
because the girls can take part while 
at Thatcher Hall it's only the deans. 
The girls here are able to share the.r^ 
own personal experience with God. 

"Fine,"l said. 'And die others?' 
Tes,' said the student. 'There is 
a very basic measurement method that 
you will like. In this method, you take 
the barometer and begin to walk up 
the stairs. As you climb the stairs, you 
mark off the length of the barometer 
along the wall. You then count the 
number of marks, and this will give you 
the height of the building in barometer 

units. A very direct method.' 

'Of course, if you want a more so- 
phisticated method, you can tie the bar- 
ometer to the end of a string, swing it 
as a pendulum, and determine the value 
of 'g' at the street level and at the top of 
the building. From the difference be- 
tween the two values of 'g' , the height of 
the building can , in principle, be cal- 

Finally; he concluded, "there arc 
many other ways of solving the problem. 
Probably the best,' he said, 'is to take the 
barometer to the basemerit and knock 
on the superintendent's door. When 
the superintendent answers, you speak 
to him as follows: 'Mr. Superintendent, 
here 1 have a fine barometer. If you 
will tell me die heiglit of this building, I 
will give you this barometer" 

At this point 1 asked the student if he 
really did not know the conventional 
answer to this question. He admitted that 
he did, but said that he was fed up with 
high school and college instructors try- 
ing to teach him how to think, to use 
the 'scientific method, and to explore 
the deep inner logic of the subject in 
a pedantic was, as is often done in the 
new mathematics, rather than teach- 
ing him the structure of the subject. 
With this in mind, he decided to revive 
scholasticism as an academic lark to 
challenge the Sputnik-panicked class- 
rooms of America.

Monday night Dr. Don Dick, chairman 
of the Communications Department of 
SMC, presented a report on the subject 
of Cable TV to the Collegedale City 
Commission, discussing some of the 
pros and cons of having Cable TV in 
Collegedale. For example: Cable TV 
would be a tremendous boon to the 
Communications Department here at 
SMC and would be open to anyone 
interested in using it. 

However, this recent development, 
of having Cable TV available to every- 
one, also has its bad implications. It 
would mean that anyone knocking on 

Sunnyside up , please 

"Sugar in the morning 
Sugar in the evening 
Sugar at Suppertime 
Be my little sugar 
And I'll love you all the time 
Suddenly the marshmellow phone 
rang and severed the joyous chorus, 
but Daddy refused to clip the mood 
and la la'd his way to the phone. 

"Mr. Sunnyside?" , 

"Yes, may 1 help you, la la la, 

Daddy Sunnyside sang. 

"Mr Qiinnv/ciHp lin 

1 "Lookie, mommy! Look at Baby s 
rosy red cheeks. See Baby slittle 
dirfiples? Ooh, mommy. Baby Id^es to 
giggle. Mommy, isn't Baby sweeter 
S gumdrops''" Little Baby Sunny- 
side cooed and crooned as he lolly- 
1 gaeeed around on his strawberry 
I Ictnted sheets in his crib constructed 
j of 12,238,476 M&M's. 

In fact, the whole Sunnyside 
I family was as sweet as little Baby 
Sunnyside-iust-like rock candy-um - 
um-good. Mommv Sunnyside was 
always in the cozy little kitchen where 
gigantic posters of Sara Lee, Jane 
Parker, Russel Stover, and Little 
Debbie wallpapered the room, top 
to bottom. She prided herself on 
her merangue,chiffon. chocolate- 
covered pineapple upside-down 
cake covered with whip cream, nuts, 
and butterscotch pudding. Mommy 
Sunnyside also played house quite 
well and was tremendously proud of 
her interior decorating abilities. Why, 
one time she went all out and taxed 
her artistic ability to the utmost 
when she put Michaelangelo to shame 
ridit in her own living room by forming 
an exquisite.cherry-navorediello sculp- 
ture of Lawrence Welk. And if you 
closed the graham aacker front door 
real hard he'd do a jiggly version of the 
, Bulgarian Polka. But, sometimes little 
Baby Sunnyside would Uke between- 
meal snacks fiom Lawrence's feet, 
therefore, his gumdrop allowance was 
I revoked for a week. 

Daddy Sunnyside was the ginger- 
breadwinner of the family. Naturally, 
he worked in a candy factory that 
specialized in a detergent that made 
your clothes smell like chocolate. 
Daddy Sunnyside also built little 
hard candy figurines (little hard 
candy houses and httle secluded 
introverted sugary communities 
were optional). It was during the 
construction of the aformentioned 
articles that Dad'dy Sunnyside 
created litfie "Fudgie Wudgie," 
the little chocolate puppet that 
performed perfectly because that 
was the way all little "Fudgie Wudgies" 
performed- Right? 

Junior Sunnyside, nicknamed 
Fudgie Wudgie" at birth but dropped 
completely by the time Junior reached 
1 5 years of age, was often a bad little 
boy and in order to avoid bad public 
relations for the Sunnyside fatnily he 
will be overlooked in this story, bope- 

1 think 1 see Daddy comiiig up the 
ie crust sidewalk now. Baby,' declared 
lommy Sunnyside delightfully. 

Daddy walked glibly through the 
front porch candy cane pillars and was 

feeted warmly by Baby and Mommy 

"How was worky worky, Honey, 
Honey?" inc^uired Mommy-ommj/. 
"Finey winey, spousy wousy, ' 
answerea Daddy-aody . 

Without any further ado, the family 
broke into--- 

Mr. Sunnyside, lih ■ your son has 
been picked up by the police for pushing 
dope, answered the monotone police 

"Surely you must have the wrong 
home, and besides what's wrong with 
pushing stupid people, maybe they 
got in the way or something." 

"Mr. Sunnyside, this is not the 
wrong home, because you're the only 
Sunnyside in the phone book, and 
dope pushing isn't shoving retards, 
it's selling an illegal substance." 

"This isn't real," Daddy Sunnyside 
squirmed. "1 mean this just doesn't 
happen to Sunnyside people. Well, 
we re happy here, don't rock the boat. 
This kind of thing just isn't talked about, 
we avoid this kind of topic. We're happy 
please don't rock the boat. Surely you 

"Mr. Sunnyside, it did happen, the 
issue needs to be realized not avoided. 
We must grab the bull by the horns and 
swing him around until ne is dead. Some 
times, it's necessary to endure a little 
pain, sometimes a lot of pain to obtain 
a secure happiness, not a fantasized 
happiness, Mr. Sunnyside," 

Mr. Sunnyside hung up the phone 

and told the other members of the 

family what had happened. The family 

stood silent for a brief moment, then 

mommy began to sing very slowly and 

softly, 'Sugar in the morning. Sugar 

in the evening." Baby and Daddy 

joined in with the same mood. But 

their voices then gradually crescendoed 

and the tempo hastened. And Lawrence 

1 jiggled the meanest version ever of the 

I Bulgarian Polka. "La la la la la la la la."

Basketball season Started last week 
w,.h much excitement as three games 
w played with a total wmnrngpotnt 
preadofsixpotnts. Theftrstgame 
was played between the teams of 
Sng and Holland with Holland 
coming out on top by the scoro 
74-71 Both teams shot 42/0 trom 
the field with Reading dumping in one 

.„ basket than Holland, but Holland 
Supt 'he challenge as they dumped 
r, ve more free throws than Readmgo 

an letrvtcorv. Keith Peden was ngh 

Te Actors while Ron Reading led Ins 

team with 19. 

The second game of the season 

ended in a 58-56 victory for Bird alter 
having battled from beWnd to tte Hale ,n 
the final seconds of the game 54-54, 
setiding the game into overtime. Not 
one not two. but three overtimes had 
to be played in order to end the game. 
Each overtime lasted three mmutes 
and each team would try to stall the 
ball when they had possession until 
the end of the overtime when they 
would then shoot hoping the ball 
would find its way through the net. 
In the first overtime Roger Bird sunk 
a basket for his team and Rick Hale 
came right back with a basket for 
his team to tie it back up again. In the 
second overtime both teams were very 
cautious not to foul or make any un- 
necessary mistakes as the period ended 
with neither team scoring. In the 
third overtime Bird had Ihc ball 
and stalled in order lo run the clock 
down and take a last shot. With 9 
seconds left Bird started lo work 
the ball in lor a shot and with 4 
seconds left Ken Defoor jumped 

and shot , the ball struck the back 
of the rim and rebounded straight to 
the hands of Rick Jacques who im- 
mediately shot the ball as the buzzer 
was going off. The ball went up and 
through the hoop for two points and 
victory for Bird. 

The third game ended in one over- 
time on a last second shot by John 
Maretich to give Reading an 80-79 
victory over Halversen. Mike Schuhz 
and Warren Halversen totaled for 56 
of their team's total of 79. Ron 
Reading led his team in their win with 
21 points. 

In two games Sunday, Hale demol- 
ished Reading 79-59 and Bird defeated 
Halversen 66-62. In the Reading-Hale 
game Rick Hale led all scorers with 22 
points while Ron Reading led his team 
with 19. Halversen lost their gaine wiH 1 
Bird by. only making 27% of their shots 
from the free throw line. 

Tliis season looks like any team 
could win over any other, so come on 
out and watch the excitement of col- 
lege basketball. 

In B League action Chrispens tore 
out in front with two victories, soundly 
defeating Brown 56-46 and Jimenez 
7 1 -50. Fowler and Hayes started their 
season right also by defeating their 
first opponents. Davis played two gaoisl 
last week, pounding Weigley 62-35 andlr 
ing defeated by Fowler 57-47. Weiglej 
is at the bottom of the pile after losinf 
their first two games. 

In C League action Voorheis 
captured the first game of the season 
with a forfeit over White. In other gin«| 
Martin dumped Carmichael 39-32. 
Garibaldi crushed Fisher 73-62. am

Rees series

The fourth annual Rees Basket 
ball Series gets underway Thursday 
night as the Talge Hall resident All- 
star players residing in the village. 
Game time is 8 p.m. in the gym- 

Sponsored by the Upsilon Delta 
""(Men's Qub), the three-game 
»n« IS being co-ordinated by Jesse 
Landess, recreation vice president of 
™club. Games will be played 
lHursday, Saturday, and if necessary, 
"unday nights at the sametime. 

o ""' ^P^ker for the weekend is 
™. thuck Knorr, a student in the 
"nirews University seminary at Ber- 
nen Spnngs, Michigan. Knorr is a 
tin! 1 U"^ winner of the Men's Na-

The Talge Hall team will be coached 
by Mr. Lyie Botimer, Dean of Men. 
Mr. Delmar Lovejoy, chairman of the 
Physical Education department, will 
coach the village team. 

The Saturday night halftime show 
will be presented by outstanding gym- 
nasts from the Southern Union 
academies. They will be at the college 
for a special gymnastic workshop, 
under the direction of Lovejoy. 

The Rees Trophy is now on display 
in the front lobby of Talge Hall. The 
village team won the trophy last year. 
The previous two series were divided 
evenly with the village team winning 
the first year, and the Talge Hall team 
winning the second year. 

Due to a lack of interest on the 
part of Men's Club, no sweetheart 
queen will be given the traditional 
bouquet of roses, as has been done 
during the series in previous years. 

The series is named in honor of 
Dr. C. N. Rees, president of SMC from 
l9S8tol968. He now lives in Thatcher 
Hall, where his wife is one of the deans 
of women. 

Rees has been a lifelong athlete 
and lover of sports. A plaque pre- 
sented to him at the first Rees 
Series four years ago reads: "Pre- 
sident of SMC, 1 958-68; Once a 
High School basketball coach; He 
taught youth how to play the game; 
A sportsman jn the game of life." 

The sportsmanship and philos- 
ophy of the series was described by 
last year's Upsilon Delta Phi President, 
Wayne Liljeros, when he said, "1 per- 
sonally feel that the Rees Series has 
helped to add to the overall Christian 
sportsmanship on the campus of 
SMC, as well as make a bigger distmc- 
tion between the goals of the earthly 
games that some of us participate in, 
and the game that we are all involved 
in-the game of eternal life."

^Tmaw b?oks iTsten to many t,.shy ^0"=- ^"out love-ye, 
Sv 'nvone thinks there is anything to be earned about 
^r Most people see the problem of love pnmarUy as that 
of beina loved, how to be loveable. Many of the ways to 
make oneself loveable are the same as those used to make 
oneself successful, "to vvin friends and influence people. 
As a matter of fact, what most people in our culture mean 
by being loveable is essentially a mixture between bemg 
popular and having sex appeal. 

Erich Fromm, a worid famous psychoanalyst, detines 
maSe love S 'ihe active concern for the life and growth 

"' Ti:!^:^^ mature love manifests i^.f 
by exposing four basic elements, common ■" f Jo™^ 
of love. These are care, responsibility, respect, and 

"^"vhere active care or concern is lacking, there is no love. 
ThU element of love has been beautifuUy described of 
Jonah Presuming that most of you know this story, we 11 
take up near the end of this miiii-drama. Jonah goes to 
Ninevah after a futile escape attempt - preaches - 
the people repent - Jonah (a man of law and order, but 
mthout love) is angry because his prophecy did not come 
true He pouts and sits under a shade tree that God grew just 
for him. But, when God makes the tree wilt, Jonah com- 
plains bitteriv. God answers: "And should I not smr^ 
Nineveh, that great city, wherein are six score thousand 
people that can not discern between theh right hand and 
their left hand. ' God's answer to Jonah is to be under 
stood symbolically. God explains to Jonah that the es- 
sence of love and labor are inseparable. One loves that 
for which one labors, and one labors for that which one 
loves. . . f 

Care and concern imply another aspect of love; that ot 
responsibilit,.. Today responsibility is often "eanto de- 
note duty, something imposed upon one froni the outside. 
Bu, responsibility, in its true sense, is an entirely voluntary 
acf'it is a response to the needs, expressed or unexpressed, 
of another human being. To be "responsible means to be 
able and ready to "respond." Jonah did not feel responsible 
to the inhabitants of Nineveh. He. like Cain, could ask; 
-Am 1 my brother's keeper?" The loving person responds. 
The life of his brother is not his brother s business alone 
but his own. He feels responsible for fellow men as he feels 
responsible for himself. . 

ResponsibUity could easily detenorate mto domination 
and possessiveness, were it not for a third component of 
love respect Respect is not fear and awe; it denotes m 
accordance with the root of the word (respicere - to look 
at) the abUity to see a person as he is, to be aware of umque 
individuality. Respect means the concern that the other 
person should grow and unfold as he is. Respect, thus, 
implies the absence of exploitation. One wants the loved 
person to grow and unfold for his own sake, arid in his own 
ways and not for the purpose of serving one. 

To respect a person is not possible without knowing him; 
care and responsibility would be blind if they were not guided 
by knowledge. Knowledge would be empty if it were not 
motivated by concern. One may know, for instance, that a 
person is angry, even if he does not show it overtly; but one 
may know him more deeply than that; then one knows that 
he U anxious and worried; that he feels lonely, that he feels 
guilty Then one knows that his anger is only the manifes- 
tation of something deeper, and one sees him as anxious and 
embarrassed, as the suffering person, rather than the angry 
one. . 

Hopefully, after reading these conclusions, you will see 
that love is not a simple emotion that leaves you floating 
through space, but a ciaft or an art that must be meticulously 
worked with, constantly striving for perfection. So think 
twice before you flippantly remark, "I'm in love, roommate.'

Dear Editor, 

It has come to my attention in the 
last month that the beauty of Christmas 
is still with us. 

1 was very glad that amid the energy 
crisis that we have all heard of, we were 
still able to have a Christmas tree. Even .ua..,^ jw- ■- 

though it was lit only for a couple of hours abo„t this matter 
each night. 

1 .would like to say that 1 appreciate 
this indication that someone is still 
thinking about the beauty of our campus, 
but 1 would also like to ask one question 
of whomever it may concern. What 
is the reason if any for the Christmas 
tree still being up? 

Thank you for answering my question ,

IriCommuitity Fire Department 
teirainedly faces the future following 
[ttanotlier collision in a long chain of 
nidents occurring in the last two years. 
TCFD Ambulance No. 40 was heavily 
taaged in a vain attempt to avoid a 
Piletbilt tractor-trailer truck which had 
Bashed into a bridge on 1-24 near 
Moccasin Bend in yesterday's pre-dawn 
|to{. The truck's driver, Thomas Duvall 
|ifColunibia, Tenn., was strucl< by the 
ibulance as he stepped from behind 
(truck's cab into the path of the 
fiil-of-contrcl rescue vehicle. 
Ambulance No. 40 was transporting 
elderly stroke victim to a Wildwood, 
1., hospital at the request of the 
[milywhen the collision occurred. 

ambulance drove blindly into the 
piis scattered across the highway as 
were no lights or flares on 
neat the wreckage to warn them 
of its presence. 
The ambulance, which was running 
ilween4S and 50 m.p.h., according 
■persons in following cars, managed 
- ivoid a large portion of the wrecked 
filetbill, but side-swiped part of the 
'^b which extended into the right- 
ed lane.

vehicles, including that of Bernie 
Corbett, an SMC senior whose 
grandfather was being transported 
in the ambulance, crashed into the 
Peterbilt wreckage or the bridge 
nearby, demolishing all but one of 
those vehicles. 

City and county ambulances car- 
ried all the injured to Erlanger Hos- 
pital where all but Mr. Duvall and 
one other woman were treated and 
released. Mr. Duvall is in the Inten- 
sive Care Unit at Erlanger and the 
woman is being treated for jaw in- 
juries. None of those in the ambul- 
ance were injured. 

Wheels, axles, glass, metal, gasolrne 
and diesel fuel continued to block 
1-24 hours after the 3:00 a.m. ac- 

How this latest loss will affect 
TCFD, leaving them only one 
ambulance to continue rescue 
operations, is yet to be seen. Ambul- 
ance Company personnel gave tic es- 
timate as to the length of time be- 
fore Ambulance No. 40 would be 
back in service.

Chuck Luster 
forms meteorology class 

Good evening, groovy guys and 
girls. Chuck Luster here with the 
latest in weather understanding." 

Chuck Luster, a junior theology 
;tudent, is both teacher and student 
.n a 3 hour class known as "Weather 
and Man." This course is an original 
Luster conception; he outlines the 
course, selects his own textbooks, 
orders his own fdms, and makes his 
own assignments. 

"Weather really freaks me out. 1 
figured that understanding it would 
quiet my superstitions and fears of 
certain dangerous weather types. I'm 
interested in weather extremes, like 
A'hy does the wind blow over cars 
and trees in Chattanooga while it's 
relatively quiet in Collcgedale," says 

Of course. Luster did not decide 
all of a sudden to just have his own 
class. He was formulating his second 
semester schedule knowing he needed 
a science course. Being not particular- 
ly excited with what was offered, he 
noticed a section in the Biology de- 
partment known as "Selected Topics" 
in which students made up their course. 
Luster then outlined his "Weather 
and Man" course, presented his pro- 
posal to Dr. H. H. Kuhlman who, 
incidentally, approved and is now 

Luster's advisor and will ultimately 
bestow his final grade. 

As far as classwork is concerned 
Luster plans to do research studies 
which will total anywhere between 
50 and 60 typewritten pages by the 
end of the semester. 

The origin of weather can even 
be found in the Bible. Because of 
die water vapor above the rirrnament 
It Ihe time of creation in the upper 
atmosphere, we had a uniform iciii- 
perature around Ihe world. We lost 
ihat water caiiope when il rained for 
Ihc first lime at the Hood. Then 
basically, because of the uneven tem- 
peratures, the wodd began to experi- 
ence a physical phenomena we now 
call weather. 

Luster will visit the National 
Weather Service in Crossville, TN to 
better understand weather patterns . 
He will also teach several class periods 
on weather formations to elementary 
students in Rossville. 

"0. K. groovy guys and girls, ten 
to one you know what the weather 
forecast is for the Collegedale area 
tomorrow morning, 807o 

chance of rain tomorrow afternoon, 
95% chance tomorrow evening and

Dear Editors, 

Granted, a letter to the editor is not 
usually the place to discuss a date to 
Sunday night's reception, but Iteei 
That in lieht of an incident that took place 
Way morning, something shorUd be 
saw to bring it to the attention of the 

'■"Xhe girl who asked me for the occ- 
asion was also asked by those wi h au- 
?horitv to sing at the program following 
He banquet meal. She, along wrth two 
ccompaniests, practiced many hours 
attempting to perfect two songs tor 
herTerforman^e. One was originally 
done by the Carpenters, and the other 
was from DiannaRoss^ For weeks she 

continued practicing the songs, even 
occasionally taking time from the valuable 

academic facet of her nursing^currjcuta^^^ 

h s 2irl's voice was too sexy, and she 
something or someone. And so, nou 

before the banquet, she was told that she 
would not be allowed to sing that even- 
ing at the program. Her name was already 
prhited on the programs which were to 
be passed out at the banquet that night, 
and it was obviously too late to alter the 
ink that had already dried on those pages. 

Now my purpose here is not argue the 
sex appeal of this girl. The banquet was 
rated "G" for general admission, and no 
performance with sensual implications 
could be allowed at such a funcuon. 

My point is simply this: Why was the 
decision of censorship made so late. 
Surely this was with the result of a 
gross oversight on someone s part, or 
someone was playing a malicious game 

But the evening was not entirely lost. 
Both of us learned how to put the back- 
spin on a bowling ball.

Dear Editor: 

Blatant ignorance in a community 
dedicated to higher learning is at best 
embarrassing for the commumty, and 
Tworst, deplorable. Ignorance breeds 
?ear which in turn breeds preiudice. 

In a recent class, I experienced such 
prejudice in the form of an ethnic slur. 


Though not directed toward me, it 
clearly revealed the existing lack of 
educated tolerance toward my people- 
the Jewish people. 

According to the SMC catalog, 
"... it is the purpose of this college to 
send forth men and women who po- 
ssess breadth of mind..." 

Obviously, knowledge is the key to 
openmindness. Those here at S MC 
who purport to be knowledgeable, ed- 
ucated, or at least educable, must surely 
have learned in studying history that the 
Jewish people were usurers in the ghettos 
jof Europe because they were farmers by 
heritage who were forced to adopt a 
different lifestyle in their new homelands. 

The image fostered of the Jew from 
'that time forth has been one of miser- 
liness and niggardliness. Those who per- 
petrate this image today are the ignorant 
few who apparently believe that every 
Jewish person is a "penny-pincher by 

The SMC Student Handbook specific- 
ally forbids the use of profanity in this 
community. To call someone (whether or 
not he is Jewish) "A Jew" as an indict- 
ment of his frugality is to use profane 
language. If I were to wear a Star-ot 
David neclace, I would be breaking a 
rule of the Student Handbook. Which 
of these two rules is harmlessly broken ;

A recent survey was taken to 
wWcli statements sucli as, 1.00

dmrch- of which 527r disagreed, 
and 37% asreed. while tire other 


37r of those questioned were non- 
sSa-s) some suggest that Its roots 
lie in mandator)' chapel attendence 
instituted throughout Uie year. 

But, before we speculate further 
on causes, many folk are having in- 
dignant feelings about the validity 
of the results, so following is a briet, 
and accurate account of the survey s 
conception and its presentation to 

the subjects who took it. 

A serious behavorial science stud 

enth^d two projects for his behavior 

classes for first semester of thjs pre 
ent school year. The initial plan was 

to use the religious attitudes inven- 
tory the same as used by the depart- 
S Itself, on subjects of Southern 
Missionary College and subjects ot 
Mumbia'union CoUege, in hopes of 
ascertaining whether the traditionally 
held belief of SMC being the most 
"onservative religious school really 
existed. Upon request for Permission 
to carry out the inventory at CUL the 
dean of students gave a negative. So 
the results obtained reflect only the 
attitudes of students of SMC . 

Because of the sensitive nature ot 
the questions satisfactory preface re- 
marks were needed to insure complete 
confidentially to an individual s re- 
sponses. This was absolutely essential 
to the survey's accuracy. 

The subjects were informed that 
the information that they supplied 
would be fed back to them in statis- 
jT, tical form and that their individual 

H } responses would remain anonymous.

religious experience comes mostly 
through their own personal prayers ^ 
and devotional Hves. To the statement 
God reveals himself through our prayers 
our devotional lives, im agree, 

10% disagree. . 

On the other hand of religiousness, 
being associated with church, a dis- 
parity is evident in that 61% disagree 
that being religious is primarily as- 
sociated with church acliviries, where- 
as 25% agree. The same holds true to 
the belief that religion requires us to 
be and f or do good. 

Is this attitude about the church 
really so wrong? Perhaps not, for

Also included on the questionnaire 

were questions dealing with moral be- 
havior. Here again, the subjects were 
lu-ged by both the teacher and the 
student administering the inventory 
that the questionnaire was a serious 
tiling, and to please respond accurate- 
ly. The survey revealed that of those 
who are not married 20% said they 
had engaged in pre.inarital intercourse, 
and 65% had not, leaving 1 5% who 
had no response. 

The question to married students 
was stated; Before you were married 
did you engage in premartial inter- 
course with the person to whom you 
are now married to? To which a 
majority of 29% said yes, overriding 
a negative 24%; minority, leaving 47% 
who had no response. When asked if 
this impaired the success of their mar- 
riage in any way, 7% said yes it had, 
24% said no it had not. 

Of those students who were not 
brought up as SDA's 1 1% revealed 
that they had engaged m premartial 
intercourse; and 56%i had not; and 
33% had no response. Of those 
students who were brought up as 
SDA's 28% revealed that they had 
engaged in premarital intercourse ; 
and 54% had not; and 1 8% had no 

The survey revealed that increas- 
ing age was directly proportional to 
an increasing incidence in premarital 

Of Theology and Religion majors 
26% had premarital intercourse; 44% 
had not; and 30% had no response. 
And of the students with any major 
other then Theology or Religion 22% 
had premarital intercourse, and 58% 
had not; and 20% had no response. 
Now what do all these statistics 
prove? Why include them in a 
student newspaper? Why should 
anyone find out what his brother 
believes of how he behaves? Why 
should we be concerned with the 
religious attitudes of individuals 
at a religious institution? Are we 
our brother's keeper?

It is hoped that SMC will have an active 
club capable of competing with other 
colleges in parachute meets. 

Some have asked, "How safe is sky 
diving?" the answer is, "How high is 
up?" Sky diving is as safe as the partic- 
ipant makes it. Statistically, jumping 
out of an airplane with a parachute is 
safer than driving down an American 

Bill Bolton, who has been jumping 
for ten years and has accumulated some 
2,280 sport parachute jumps, will 
give professional advice and training 
to the club members. He has also of- 
fered to lend the use of his Cessna 182 
and all of his parachute equipment. 

There are enough chutes to go 
around so that a plane load can be in 
the air, ready to jump and another load 
on the ground packing and getting 
ready to go as soon as the plane lands. 

The question most frequently asked 
is, "What if the chute doesn't open?" 
There is no reason for the chute not to 

open if it is good equipment and packed 
right. The club has the best and safest 
equipment available, and the instructors 
carefully teach everyone how to pack 
their chutes. 

As an added safety measure, every 
emergency chute has an atmospheric 
pressure sensing device which automat- 
ically opens the chute if the jumper falls 
below 1 ,000 feet above ground at a 
critical rate of descent. 

Although sky diving in some cases 
can be a rich man's sport, it doesn't 
have to be. The estimated cost in the 
club is $25 for training and the first 
jump. If the club acquires enough 
members, the plane can be rented by 
the hour thus costing only around $ 1 
to $3 a jump.

Last Monday night at 7:31 p.m. the 
eighth regular meeting of the S. A Sen- 
ate was called to order by parliamentar- 
ian Steve Jones. BobZima,S. A Vice- 
i^resident and presiding officer of the 
Senate, had scripture and prayer. 

The first point on the agenda was 
the discussion of the pending proposal 
of pantsuits for general campus wear 
that must be approved by the Faculty- 
Senate before becoming an actuality. 
Dean Spears was there to clarify ques- 
tions and comments on the issue. Ac- 
cording to Dean Spears, if this were 
voted upon by tlie Faculty-Senate, 
"About 75% would vote for pants 
anytime, if they were sure they would 
not get faded blue-jeans and things of 
this nature, but get what they voted 
for." He went on to say "Experience 
in other campuses has shown they 
don't get what they vote for." 

After Julie Lamson was voted to 
lemporardy fill Debbie Fillman's va- 
cant Senate post, Doug Clarke report- 
ed the results of the poll taken January 
22 at the divisionalized chapel on the 
issue of the plus-and-minus system. 
In answer to the question "Are you in 
agreement with the plus-and-minus 
system as it now stands? 1 07 agreed. 

73 were in disagreement, whUe 138 
would like to see the system remain 
It certain changes were instituted into 
It. 96wereinfavorofabohshmentof 
t entirely. 

The pros and criticisms were then 
discussed. In answer to the proposition 
that the plus-and-minus system hurt 
students because some colleges would 
not accept a C- toward a major, Dr. 
Hanson said, "Dr. Kutzner knows of 
no college that does this. The only 
way one could be hurt is if he trans- 
ferred to another school that has the 
plus-and-minus system and they don't 
accept a C- for a major. 

Next Gerald Brown was voted to 
replace Kay Waller as a student repre- 
sentative to the Faculty-Senate. Judy 
Wade then brought to the Senate's 
attention the subject of replacing 
missing pieces to various games that 
belong to the S. A. and are kept in 
the Student Center. It was decided 
that Judy should investigate the cost 
of an air hockey table, in addition 
to taking necessary measures to re- 
place the game pieces. This being 
the last point on the agenda, the 
meeting was adjourned.

Insighl magazine has recently been 
facing some stormy weather regarding 
their current financial problems. The 
fact is that Insight is now loosing 
money. This is largely due to dwindling 
numbers of subscribers which has now 
dipped to the point where Insight has 
lost money for both of the past two 

Insight is currently exploring ways 
to alleviate its financial problems in 
the near future. One proposed solu- 
tion would be a merger of Insight with 
the General Conference Youth De- 
partment. Insight's editor, Mike Jones, 
says that this is one possible way to 
remedy the magazine's money problems. 
The merger proposal has not progressed 
past the discussion stages as of yet. He 
said no definite action can be taken 
until the next General Conference 
session which is not until 1 975. At 
present Insight is published by the 
Review & Hearld Publishing Associ- 
ation, which is owned by the General 

'"This magazine will not survive 
in its present form if we don't get 
some support," Jones said recently. 
Subscriptions have dropped from 
over 50,000 at one time to a low of 
,39,900 at present. Insight's circula- 
tion has stabilized between 43 and 
45,000 subscribers. 

There are several reasons for the 
loss of subscribers that Insight has 
undergone. When the magazine first 
appeared in May of 1970, a number 
of Conferences and Institutions 
helped Insight to get on its feet by 
guaranteeing to underwrite large 

As many of these charter sub- 
scriptions ran out they just did not 

Another significant factor is that 
Insist lost some support among 
conservatives in Sabbath School and 
boarding school positions. Some 
academies, such as Monterey Bay 
Academy in California, terminated 
their subscriptions completely untili 
recently when a number have once 

again renewed their subscriptions. 
This is a rathe'r serious problem since 
60-65 percent of the circulation is 
bulk subscriptions. Insiglit recom- 
mends one copy per room in SDA 
hording schools in North America. 

Talge Hall receives 140 copies 
for its 362 residents. According to 
those responsible for its distribu- 
tion in the dorm the demand there 
far outweighs the supply . 

Jones reports that Insight has 
lost much support among Advci.- 
tist in other English speaking coun- 
tries. The circulation has decreased 
by as many as 5,000 outside of the 
United States since publication be- 
gan. He says that leaders from these 
countries were told when Insight 
began publication that the magazine 
was primarly for Americans. Jones 
disagrees with this philosphy and is 
now making efforts to woo these 
Adventist countries back. Aspartof 
this effort Insight is attempting to 
include more international articles 
by young writers hke 23 year old 
Jane Allen who is a correspondent 
in the Middle East. 

Jones stated that there are several 
appealing aspects of the proposed 
link-up with the General Conference 
Youth Department. As he now sees 
it, the magazine's staff would become 
employees of the Youth Department, 
with the editor possibly becoming an 
associate secretary. This could provide 
rationale for paying one editor from 
General Conference funds, leaving one 
less salary to be paid from money 
brought in by subscriptions. 

Jones said probably the most 
appealing aspect of all is that it 
would give Insight a departmental 
base for promotion of the magaziiie 
such Hi Liberty has in the Religious 
Liberty Department. He said that 
at this time they are just not being 
given the promotional support that 
they need by the men in the field.

Take a look around you ■ 

Last week in my history class another chapter in 
the year-long controversy between SMC liberals 
and "conservatives" was written, , 

A student suggested to his teacher *at one ot 
the textbooks being used was pornographic because 
there were mthin its pages prints of certain cl^- 

)ical paintings depicting persons in vano- stag^ of 
love-making-whatever that phrase mean to the

to learn of such historical events, he stated. This 
statement led to a rather heated discussion of Ad- 
ventists and their involvement m the world. resuU 
ing in both sides drawing their opimons c oj »>H.ut 
them and ignoring the opposition the rest of the 

"^Unfortunately, incidents like this are aJl too 
common. Blindness to.issues of importance m to- 
day's worid wiU not make us any better citizens 
or students, Christians or friends. Naivete is not » 
quaUty the worid admires in Christians And sex 
b an issue of umversal interest, especially m a coll- 
ese community. , . , , , .u 

Last Friday morning an 18-year-old gnl was al^ 
ducted from the streets of CoUegedale and narrowly 
escaped being mped. ™s taeident occuied m 
front of the coUege apartments, withra the hub of 
our secure, Adventist community, our "rose-among- 
thoms" city, as one of my classmates so aptly to- 
mbed it. And this is not the first of such mcidents 
to occur recently. 

Not long ago I was discussing SMC s karate class 
with a giri on my dorm wing, "Oh, I do"'* »«« to 
know about that," die stated, "Even if I should be 
cau^t m a bad situation, the Lord would get me 
out OK." 

It is not my purpose in this editorial to question 
the power of God or the hand of Providence, but 
the ignorance of some of His foUowers in their role 
as guardians of His law, including No, 7. 

We Adventists are part of a larger commumty 
than just our church; we owe our fellowman more 
flian impassive observation as we shake the dust 
from our feet. The church as a body is doing a 
great deal of good-physical as weU as spiritual-for 
aiose outside our ranks. But the nanow views and 
exclusive attitudes of many individuals undermme 
much of the good others have done. 

When Christ prayed for His foUowers He said, 
"I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of 
the worid but that thou shouldst keep them from 
the evfl." (John 17:15). EUen White says in Pat- 
riarchs and Prophets, "They (God's people) must 
keep themselves free from its (the world's) spmt, 
because it is opposed to truth and righteousness. 
But God did not intend that His people, in self- 
righteous exclusiveness, should shut themselves 
away from the worid, so that they could have no 
influence upon it." 

I will be the first to admit that too much ex- 
posure to the worid and its corrupting influences 
can callous individuals. But with all its evils and 
hnperfections, it is our world and until Christ comes 
and removes us we have to live in it. 

Ignorance and exclusiveness do not breed im- 
provement. It is our duty to face the worid field 
as it is and react accordingly. Burying your head 
in the sand is turning your hack on reality.

Dear Editors: 

Surveys of premarital sexual be- 
havior of students undoubtedly at- 
tract interest. Beyond that, the re- 
asons for publishing the results of 
such surveys in the feurtera ,4c- 
cent are less obvious. In qucsUon- 
ine the wisdom of publishing these 
reJults I fmd myself defendlirg a 
position which I am more often prone 
to attack-the withholding of infor- 
mation. In general, I think far too 
much of this goes on withjn our 
church (probably all churches) and 
our government (the problems sur- 
rounding Watergate being a case in 

""""plrhaps withholding information 
could be justified 1) if it is not being 
withheld for the purpose of deception, 
2) if its pubUcation may very Ukeiy 
lead to erroneous conclusions on the 
part of readers, and 3) if its pubhca- 
tion leads to no really useful purpose, 

1 don't think anyone could sen- 
ously charge you with deception had 
you not pubUshed the results ot this 
survey. If the results were highly re- 
liable, if you had reason to beUeve 
that most readers of the Southern 
Accent were of the opinion that 
the incidence of premarital sex 
among students is far below (or 
above) that indicated by the survey, 
and if the decision was made to with- 
hold the results in order to keep (tor 
some reason oi other) the readers 
misinformed, then deception would „ 
be involved. These axe three big ifs. 
It would be difficult to estabhsh the 
truth of any one of them to say nothing 
of all three. 

I am of the opinion that the pub- 
lication of the results of the survey wiU 
lead to erroneous conclusions on the 
part of many readers. Some wiU assign 
more reUability to the figures than they 
warrant. What conclusions can you 
draw concerning the behavior ot a 
populaUon when 15% to 47% of the 
ample refused to answer a given 
question'? How much faith can you 
put in aswers to questions which deal 
with such a personal matter as sexual 
behavior? Does asking the subjects to 
take the questionnaire seriously assure 
us that they will? I can't think of a 
better way to get information on this 
subject, but are all readers aware of 
the potentially large margin of £ 

lUlw Kiob a? /etters to the editor 


in a study of this nature? 

When you publish similar statis- 
tics from other colleges will you be 
able to assure us that their surveys 
and statistical techniques are compar- 
able to ours ( the same or very similar 
questions asked, the same method of 
sampling used, the percentage of no 
responses to each question given, etc.)? 
Is it possible that a significant number 
of readers will make serious judgments 
of the College, the Seventh-day Adven- 
tist Church, or religion in general on the 
basis of incomparable or just plain m- 
accuiate statistics? 

Let's assume the statistics you pub- 
lished are pretty accurate. Most of us 
find comfort in the fact that many 
others make the same mistakes we make. 
This is probably all right so long as we 
recognize our actions as mistakes and 
resolve, with (3od's help, to overcome 
the problem. If, however, we use the 
knowledge that many yield to various 
temptations to justify (in advance of 
the act) OUT own yielding or to mduce 
others to yield, then die possession of 
such knowledge becomes detrimental 
to the possessor and the community as 
a whole. 1 may be wrong, but I suspect 
that the published survey results will 
be put to such use by a small number 
of immature readers. , 

If, according to your (assumed ac- 
curate) statistics, SMC has a lower (or 
higher) incidence of premarital sex than 
some other college, what does that prove? 
I think that in many readers' minds it will 
reflect on the religious dimension of the 
College. Perhaps the College Is doing a 
rather good (or poor) job of educating the 
students to the serious social and personal 
consequences of this sin. Then again, the 
results may reflect more upon the pop- 
ulation from which we draw our students. 
Undoubtedly there are many other con- 
clusions which could be drawn. It is 
hazardous to Ohow out raw statistics 
and let the reader draw his own conclusions- 
especially in such a sensitive area as sexual 

I have attempted to show that it would 
not have been deceitful for you not to have 
published the resulu ot the survey, and Uat 
its publication could very well lead to m- 
correct or harmful conclusions. I place the 
burden of showing such information to be 
useful general knowledge in your hands.

■nie question was asked of me, 
■iviv doesn't the music department 
yjnso. music groups of the "IN" 

'"llUttempt to answer this ques- 
awitii my opinions and not as 
Uicial dogma of the denomin- 
ion or the music department. 
Onemight say that the music 
artment is a depository or pre- 
irofwhat it considers the Art 
_„usic or the classics. Now you 
sl/'Wliat do you mean by the 
lassies?" 1 feel that this is music 
ihicli tiirough the test of time 
loves itself to be of lasting value 
id beauty; therefore, needs to 

and passed on to future 
^Btiations. _ 

The music of the masses or pop- 
music" has an ever changing and 
I lived style which is self genera- 
and is easily accessible . This 
ii of music because of these charac- 
Bslics generally needs no special 
ilection to insure its continuance, 
ilhermore, there is in the very 
tap of the text and musical con- 
il of the popular music aspects 
' lly inconsistent with our partic- 
Adventist Christian beliefs. 
.Jusical content, source, and 
foraiance manner are the three 
I that cause me to have personal 
lid with the popular "religious 
1 singing groups" of our day. 
lere does the musical content 
|,.; songs and the style of singing 
[these groups come from? It ap- 
is quite obvious that it is not a 
ly new and original way of pre- 
message as unique as the 

Two sides on 
contemporary christian music 

Three Angels Message but rather a 
profane, watered-down version of 
current rock groups seen on TV, 
night clubs, concert halls, or driig 
pads. ^ 

I do not condemn or condone the 
current groups, I only raise the ques- 
tion as to the justification of this 
approach to spreading the gospel. 

Personally, I feel the "sensuous" 
use of the microphones, the chord 
progressions based on the rock idiom, 
and the beat whose foundation is 
"rock" only serve to cheapen rather 
than elevate the soul. 

The questions that keep poking 
at my cerebrum are these. If what 
we are doing is right (IN groups) 
and the source is pure, why don't 
we go all the way and put sacred 
themes to "Acid Rock." Wouldn't 
this even reach more of the masses 
if that is the justification for use? 
Where do we go from here? Would 
not the congregation understand the 
music better if the organist would 
play to the accompaniment of a 
"ballroom piano," string bass, and 
drum in our church service? 

As a youth and as a student in 
Adventist schools, I have beerf 
taught that God demands the very 
best. We are to present to Him 
only the purest and noblest works 
of art in a manner that will glorify 
God and not man. 

There are sources, Adventist and 
Non-Adventist, from which I could 
have quoted, but this is an opinion 
column and 1 appreciate the oppor- 
tunity to be able to exercise mine. 

There has been a change the last few 
years in the type of music our youth are 
singing. These new songs with their refresh- 
ing new melodies and deep thought-out 
words are reaching the hearts of thousands 
who have the privilege of listening to them. 

The Southern Union has 12 witness 
singing teams actively engaged in sharing 
Christ. When the songs that are sung create 
within the heart of the hearer a desire to 
love Jesus more, and he finds his thoughts 
are turned heavenward, then you can be 
sure that God is in the heart of the singers 
and their song brings joy to those who 

By the messages in song from these 
12 teams, many have their thoughts up- 
lifted from the trials and difficulties of the 
way, the restless, turbulent spirit is soothed 
and calmed, the principles of truth are im- 
planted in the memory, and faith is strength- 
ened. "The melody of praise is the atmos- 
phere of heaven; and when heaven comes 
in touch with the earth there is music. 

It is my conviction that the change in 
most of the religious music among our 
youth has been directed of God-music 
that they enjoy singing and that is also 
beneficial to those who listen. "Our youth 
are set as liglitbearers on the way to heaven. 
They are to reflect to the world the 
light shining upon them from Christ. 
Their life and character should be such 
that through them others will get a right 
conception of Christ and of His service. 
Christians who gather up gloom and sad- 
ness to their souls and murmur and complain 
are giving to others a laise representation 
of God and the Christian life. They give 
the impression that God is not pleased 
to have His children happy, and in this

chey bear talse witness against our 
heavenly Father." Steps to Christ, pp. 
} 15, 116. 

The fact that thousands have been in- 
spired during this past year and that hun- 
dreds gave their hearts to God, gives me 
reason for great rejoicing to see how God 
is using these dedicated youth in this spec- 
ial type of witnessing to hasten the soon- 
coming of Christ. 

The 1-1/2 million dollars free TV time, 
the hundreds of appointments made in 
shopping malls, prisons, churches, parks, 
etc., convinces me that this type of witness 
has done more to break down prejudice 
than anything we have done in the past 
130 years. 

I overheard a baptist minister say, after 
listening and fellowshiping with one of our 
teams, "It is nice to know that Seventh- 
day Adventists love Christ too." We are 
getting this kind of response, and I say we 
have lost 130 years of prime time. lam 
convinced that these singing teams, as well 
as all other youth engaged in soul-winning, 
have the privilege of taking part in the 
very beginning of the latter rain.

There are a growing number of us who 
feel that dorm life, as it exists, is not a 
necessity. And to argue its merits on the 
basis of protection, watch care, spirituality, 
or convenience would be sheer verbosity 
with nothing more accomplished than 
wasted paper space. However, mandatory 
dorm residence does have one very sound 
merit-financially it is an excellent and 
sure source of revenue. But does this have 
to be? Some of us are havmg a hard enough 
time as it is getting through college without 
having to pay for the unnecessary- It's sort 
of like trying to wring water from a dry 

Isn't it peculiar that at SMC, by public 
"utterance'' of two "I do's," suddenly two 
people arc transformed as if by some mys- 
tical process of metamorphosis into respon- 
sible adults-'Stalwart Bulwarks" capable of 
"weathering life's tempestuous seas." And 
isn't it ironic that although we as single 
people (and perhaps with some audacity) 
consider ourselves aduhs, the State of 
Tennessee considers us adults, as United 
States Citizens we are considered adults, 
being beyond the age of accountabUity 
God considers us as adults, yet SMC can- 
not extend to us this same courtesy.

Dear Editor: 

If recent events are any indication of 
what's in store for the new year-then k ds, 
your apathy is finally seeing some results. 
Aren't you proud of yourselves? . 

Case in pomt. Everyone's screaniing 
for action, ''We want more to do, but 
those sami action-fiends, when apP">ach- 
ed to he^p plan those activities, hli behind 
the apparently innocuous excuse, I don t 
have the time." Trouble is, everyone is

man for the SA whose major function was 
head of SA sponsored activities. D"^ <° ™

""^'•Get'Mimething done," you say? 

Why don't you do something. 

You know, three VeMs ago *« had

It's Sgerous to get up, crawl out, and 

be a go-getter-it's always dangerous when 
you threaten the smug, self-complacency 
of the apathetics. 

Sure, we're doing alot for Bonnie Oaks; 
we're doing alot for the fue department; 
we're doing alot for Nicaragua.. -What are we 
doing for SMC? 

SA elections are coming up soon, although 
that's not my primary reason for writing this, 
and you can show me if you're alive and 
care by voting. That may give others some 

-Everett Wiihelmsen 

Dear Editor: 

1 am one of the negative team 
that would like the statis quota to 
remain the same as it is. „....„ 

1) We are paying for a Chnstian 
education. Dress goes along with the 
education. If the girls want to wear 
pantsuits to classes, then let them 
go to UTC. 

2) If pantsuits are passed,nhen 
the oris will start wearmg blue leans 
and their femininity is then lost. 

A guy would like to see a girl m a 
dress not pants all the time. 

All those opposed to the pant- 
suit idea should write a letter to 
Dr. Knittel. He sliould receive it 
no later than February 10. 

Attention males! We want your 
letters too. They countjust as much 
if not more. How would you like to 
see the girls dressed at SMC . .

New trash system 

proposed to 
Collegedale Comm. 

, Tired of the inefficient program 
of trash pick-up cunently in use . 
^^u/comAussion made .ts mam 

UlSneS Monday night, a new trash 

' '^^"iTBraught, national sales mana- 
I »er for USS Chemicals, Division o 
uited States Steel, presented a film- 
strip of the "RoU-a-Waste- system 
thrcuehout the eastern Umted Mates. 
' iif filmstrip endeavored to show 
I how it was more efficiem in a num- 
'""n Because the 82-gallon container 

IS on a frame with wheels, anyorie 
I can handle it-from kids to grand- 

''^l^Having uash stored in a big 
. con'tainer with a Ud wUl help to 
discourage the dogs that habituaUy 

tip over garbage cans. 

3) With the increased capacity 
of these barrels, the city will be 

1 able to pick up trash once a week 

4) The system employs a hydraui- 
I ic lifter which wiU help to cut down 

1 on injuries involved with lifting. 

Great claims were made about this 
new high-density, polyethylene con- 
tainer. It seems that it's virtually in- 
destructible. The can has survived 
the brutal treatment of being towed 
behind a speeding car and let loose 
to go crazily down the road until 
it hit something (the fun of some 

Garbage acid, extreme cold 200 

pounds of trash, and a full load of 
water have aD been met by the superb 
qualities of this contamer. 

The price for one of these super- 
cans" is S35. If bought in a quantity 
of 500 or more, Mr. Braught quoted 
the now "going price" as S29.50. 
Perhaps students of Southern 
Missionary College will be here long 
enough to see this plan implemented, 
but ifs doubtful. The only action 
taken on the new sanitation system 
I was to recommend that Mr. Walter 

HerreU, Public works commissioner, 

go^ed and look into this mater 

Sore fully and see if the plan IS 

feasible for Collegedale. 

The controversial re-zonmg of 
the real estate at the junction ot 
Moore and Camp Roads also sur- 

^'^Due to various complaints of 
Collegedale citizens, the Commission 
referred the zoning bill back to the 
Chattanooga and Hamilton County 
Regional Planning Commission, where 
upon said real estate has been re-zoned I 
from business to town-house apart- | 

ment zone. ^ , - ' 

The first reading and first hearing | 
were given toniglit and it was adopted , 
byaun^'nim™^™'^- A second hearing , 
wUl be given at the next meeting ot | 

the Collegedale City Commission. 

Other business included the further 
working out of a long-range plan that 
mcludes a community center for the 

"^ The center would have a gymnasium; 
basketball, tennis, and soft-ball courts; 
and possibly a swimming pool. 

Trails for horseback -riding and mira- 
bikes are also planned. 

Then came the budget-it didn t look 
too good to Mr. "Buddy" Blair, city 
auditor, who pointed out many de- 
ficits which need paying-up. 

One major outlay that had not ap- 
peared in the budget, but still was 
undertaken, was the purchase ot the 
American gas station adjacent to the 
City Hall That set them back 525,000 
A S70 000 loan to the Fire Depart- 
ment still needs 569,000 repaid. 

Mr Wayne VandeVere, finance 
commissioner, expressed concern over 
the failure to stick to the budget. He 
asked that everyone pay closer atten- 
tion to the budget in the future. 
The Commission adjourned on this

Jones did point out as m any other 
marriage, there would be some sacn- 
tlce of independence. Jones went on 
to say that even if Insight did mciease 
Aeir circulation to 55,000 (the num- 
ber needed to break even) there would 
be no reason why they would not 
want to go ahead with the merger.

a reduced rate for nine months Jones 
said that he hopes that they wdl be 

able to offer these for either $5.95 

" He said that they would be able 
to reduce all of the subscription 
rates,if they can, to get more adver- 
tising. Insight is also going ahead 
with plans of having three monthly 

48-page issues during this coming 
summer. , , ,, ., . . 
Jones said that ii something is 
not done to alleviate the current finan- 
cial dilemma. Insight might be forced 
into bi-veekly publication. There is 
strong feelings among many of the 
readers against such a move according 
to Jones. 

The Accen t asked Jones if the 
financial problems have put pressure 
upon him to take a more moderate 
editoral stand in order to increase 
tlteir circulation. He replied by 
saying that they are trying to stay 
close to the Lord. This is how he 
sees the role of the editor. He 
stated that Insight is attempting to 
be "more Christ-centered than 
issue centered, but dealing with the 
important issues." He sighted the 
abortion issue which Insight will be 
dealing with. Jones went on to say 
that if due to pressure he was unable 
to deal with the important issues as 
he felt best he would just step out 
and move on to other pursuits,

800 New Testaments 
distributed here by Gideonites 

Last Tuesday, the SMC campus was 
visited by 10 men from the Chattanooga 
Gideonite camp. According to one of the 
men, Mr. Preson Phillips, Sr., SMC was 
their last step on a tour of all Chattanooga 
area colleges. 

The Gideonites are an inter-denomina- 
tional group whose purpose is to put a 
Bible into the hands of every person they 
possibly can. While at SMC, approximately 
800 New Testaments were distributed to 

the students. When computed at $.60 a- 
piece, the total cost comes to $480.00. 
The funds for supporting such acitivites 
as this are solicited from different churches 
annually by the individual Gideonites. 

In the past, the Gideonites have con- 
centrated mainly on elementary grades, 
1-5, hospitals, jails, and motels, giving away 
about 20 million Bibles. But this year, as 
Mr. Phillips said, they figured it "was about 
time they started working on the colleges."

Dear Editors: 

My comment is in reference to a letter in 
the Accent of this past week. Although I am 
not acquainted with the incident to which 
Yetta Foote referred, 1 would like to apologize 
for each of us who, without thought, "slur" 
our friends, classmates or teachers. Though 
this is a Christian college, we are not perfect; 
and hopefully no one claims to be such. I 
once saw a lapel button which, ideally, each 
of us would be wearing. (To spoil the secret 
for its owners, interpreted acronimicly, its 
message is "Please be patient God is not 
finished with me yet.' ) 

Whether we realize it or not, insults are 
selfish in orgin. By slurring you, I either sub- 
tract from your "altitude" of character pres- 
tige, or I climb upon your less desirable traits 
by ridicule; both of which have the end result 
of increasing my self-prestige in relation to 
yours. Such a practice shows no respect for 
anyone, as we fight to see which dog swaUows 
the next. Worst of all are the insults related 

to national, ethno-racial groups or those dir- 
ected toward physical characteristics. These 
are odious. Perhaps each of us should ex- 
perience a period of true minority status. 

Before closing, 1 would hke to thank 
Yetta for waking us from a slumbering wald 
of carelessness. Sometimes we need a friend 
(someone not usually heard from) to bring 
to light those times when we are less than 
kind, maybe unthinking or even prejudiced. 
One sentence struck me, in particular; to 
quote "To call someone (whether or not 
he is Jewish) "A Jew" as an indictment of 
his frugality is to use profane language." 
1 hope I remember that always. Think about 
it; it applys to every man on this earth be he 
Jew, Negro, Polock, or American (if you 

At times, I too have made reference to 
Jews as "people who handle money well;" 
it has been (though sometimes jokingly) 
from admiration. Then again, a slap in the 
face hurts whether from friend or "foe." 

Wishing a better "people understand- 
ing" for each of us.

KLere was one game played Monday 
night between Bird and Halversen. 
iBiid-s team shot better percentage 
from the field and the hne,and still 
lost the game in double overtime 
I 75-73 Bird balanced their scoring 
out with Ken Defoor, Rick Jacques, 
Ed Jackson, and Roger Bird all in 

double figures while H^,«"^".^ ,,^ 
main attack was from Mike Schultz

Rick Jacques (4 for 4) hitting 1 00%

are still tied at 4 wins and no loses. 
Fowler won easily over Weigley last 
week, dumping them 66^0. Chnspens 
had a little harder time m wmmng 
against Davis. The big scorer for 
Oirispens, Randy Northington, was 
injured during the game and had to 
leave with 19 points. This gave Davis 
a chance to catch up. They not only 
caught up but passed Chrispens at 
64-62 with about 6 seconds left in 
the game. Steve Welch saved the game 
for Chrispens with a 15 foot shot from 
the right side to tie the game 64-64 with 
1 second left. They went into one over- 
tjme and Chrispens came out on top 
70-66. In other "B" league games, 
Jimenez defeated Davis 72-65 and 
Hayes dumped Brown 75-69. 

In "C" league action last week.

off for awhile until with 49 seconds 
left in the game when Mike Schultz 
was fouled and went to the line for a 
chance to make two points on a one 
and one attempt. Schultz hit both 
free throws to put Talge ahead by 
six points again. With time running 
out the Village scored their last 2 
points on a basket by Randy Cockrell, 
Rick Hale was fouled with 25 seconds 
left in the game and went to the line 
to score the games last two points on 
free-tluows, giving Talge the victory 
and the series. Each team won two 
times with the Village winning the 
first and third series, and Talge the 
second and fourth. 

Rick Hale opened the third game 
this year with two points and ended 
it with two points, but Rick also 
scored 28 more points in the game 
for a total of 32 points. Wlien the 
going got tough Rick Hale got tougher 
as he dazzled the fans with his aerial 
bombardments. Last year the Village 
keyed on Rick in the third game and 
thus kept his scoring down. Thisyeai 
the Vaiage stuck on him fairly well 
but Rick stood the test and sunk 
baskets from twenty feet just the 
same. Of course, it helps to have a 
scoring threat in the person of 
Warren Halversen on your team to 
help ease off some of the pressure. . 
In the third game Rick scored on 13 
out of 1 7 shots fiom the field for a 
sizzling 76.5% and sunk 6 for 7 free 
throws for 85.7%. In the three game 
series Rick scored 27 for 39 fiom the 
field for about 69.2% and dumped 
6 out of 9 from the fiee-throw line 
for 67% Rick Hale is an all around 
athlete and a fine gentleman giving 
Talge the punch they needed to bring 
them through to victory, thus it is

Beards voted down as 
Faculty Senate 
deadend issue 
in 12-1 2 tie 

A move to abolish the no-beards 
policy for SMC students was killed 
Monday atternoon in a split vote of the 
Faculty Senate. A secret ballot, taken 
after considerable discussion of the issue 
showed 1 2 for and 1 2 against the- meas- 
ure and one abstaining. A majority 
approval is required for passage, so the 
status quo will remain and beards 
will not be permitted at SMC next 

Senators who were in favor of the 
beards generally agreed that it is no 
longer a detriment for a man to be 
seen wearing a beard. However, Senators 
who opposed the beards did so on the 
grounds that the conservative South is 
still generally opposed to this type of 
dress on men. They contended that 
it would not be advantageous for SMC 
to allow such, because SMC's ability to 
influence the public toward Christian 
objectives would be impaired. 

In other action, the Senate heard a 
report from the Student Affairs 
Committee dealing with the calendar 
for 1974-75 and the student hand- 
book It was voted to let Thanksgiving 

vacation remain on the calendar, in spite 
of recent proposals to eliminate it in 
favor of a longer Christmas break to 
reduce traveling. 

Discussion was given to the elimin- 
ation of exam week as such. Final 
exams could still be given by teachers 
individually, but they would be given 
at a regular class meeting. This only 
means that teachers would no longer 
be required to give final semester exams. 
No vote was taken on the issue. 

In a discussion of the faculty hand- 
book, it was voted to approve a change 
in the Senate constitution dealing with 
the appeal procedures concerning actions 
taken by the Senate. 

The old version of the section m 
question read: "Petitions delivered to the 
President later than four school weeks fol- 
lowing the date of the Senate action will 
not be considered." The new version 
reads: "The intention to circulate a peti- 
tion must be signified in writing to the 
President within two weeks of the date 
of the Senate action and the signed peti- 
tion must be delivered to the President 
I within four weeks of this date.

In 1 968, statictics showed 36.5% and 
n 4% fir males and females respective-

premartial intercourse. 

As religiosity is related to morality, 
Heltsley and Broderick (1969) found 
that for white students higli religiosity 
tended to be negatively related to sex- 
ual permissiveness but not with Negro 
students. Ehrmann (1964) found that 
'religious affiliation was not related to 
sexual permissiveness, but religiosity was. 
For whites, (1967) found low church 
attendance tended to be associated with 
high sexual permissiveness for both men 
andv^omen. In a separate study, Scho- 
field corborated these findings.

mind to mathematics, waking such 
engrossing formulas as SIQK- (JJ - y i -

2) Since Valentinitus tends to progress 
rapidly on weU-groomed bodies, let your 
hair go for once. Weai2csterday_s20ck^ 

Leave off shaving for a day. The more I

After all, an aspiring maverick lil(e yoil 
should shun horseplay on this day aboil 
all others. And if you do get cauglit,J 
go blaming it on some fanciful AmeriJ

Advice from a Liberated Valentine 

No longer toil on land and sea 
For candied sweets that fatten, 

But circumvent so logically 

The ring you've thrown no hat in. 

When hearts entwine along the vine, 
When fingers clasp each other, 

Leave off your sighs of latent spring 
And race for home and mother! 

Let not Love's arrows Hay your heinl 
Let not his wiles delay you, 

For if you linger at her side 
Her perfume shall waylay yoii. 

O Scatter ye thistles while ye may, 
Thougli Time would have you lii 

For prickles spring from thistles smill 
And springing prickles marry. I 

1 ask the question: How many of you have ever 
heard a serm'on on sex7 1 have never and havmg been 
Tregular SDA church attendance aU my Me 1 be- 
"eve this to have caused irrepairable damage to the 
comtituents of the church with the truth. How many 
LSals during their Mf "je -"rpora^^e sexu^ 
activity into their day to day life style? We preach 
about such human behavior as love, companion hate, 
war, and man's inhumanity to man m efforts ot 
making man a better person. Tlien why do we hide 
sex in a closet like we hide our sins, leaving mil- 
lions afflicted with sexual hang-ups, and why do 
respond to revelations of promiscuity with mdigna- 
tion and abhorance, in further efforts of stifling 
complex human emotions? Can man deal with his 
psychological and physiological self repeating the 
five words: "Thou shalt not commit adultry .' 
Do our criticisms stem from ignorance or a lack 
of understanding? It should be our goal to understand 
and deal with all ot man's behavior rather than 
remaining fixated at a present level of inadaquate 
dealings with our God given sexual natures.

Two sides on the 
of beards at SAAC 

..le proposed revision of the 1974-75 
Ijent Handbook reads, "Beards, 
llaches, and sideburns should be trim- 

waiid well groomed." I voted for 

approval of this change for the following 

1) I believe the "Well groomed" beard 
has lost its connotation as being a symbol 
of revolt against society. (Please note the 
key words "well groomed" which should 
always be the goal of the Christian.) Be- 
cause of this, i think the men vs. faculty 
impasse should be resolved by placing 
confidence and responsibility in the 
men, thus relieving a long standing ten- 
sion on this campus. 

2) Because of my recent visits to 
several campuses, 1 believe that once 
the initial freedom wears off, beards wiU 
probably be worn by fewer than five per 
cent of the men on campus. Certain nat- 
ural limiting factors are in operation such 
as: inability to grow a good looking beard 
opinions of sweethearts and wives. 

3) Further, 1 believe that our men 
should be taught there are situations 
in which a beard is not appropriate, 
student teaching and the ministry are 
two current examples. 

4) Finally, I firmly believe that 
the vast majority of our men would 
accept this new freedom with respon- 
sibility and that those boys who did 
not should be dealt with accordingly.

The aphorism, "an ounce of preven- 
ition is worth a pound of cure" is apropos 
regarding the discussion of the beard 
iquestion which is frequently agitated on 
the campus of SMC. Although the 
beard, per se, is amoral, there are other 
considerations which may warrant 
declaring a beard genocide among our 
male students capable of raising enough 
fuzz to be labeled a beard. 

By-passing the unsightliness of the 
first two to seven days of planting and 
cultivating the embryonic beard, 1 come 
to what in my estimation is the main con- 
sideration for refusing to give it welcome 
acceptance at our school; namely, the 
difficulty of controlling those who are 
unwilling to cooperate with the regula- 
tion "clean and neatly trimmed." Allow- 
ing for the fact that many will cooperate, 
there will always be those who "given an 
linch will take a mile." This statement 
may appear to sound like an unfair, un- 
grounded, negative value judgment; 
however, it is founded upon empirical 
evidence relating to singular problems. 

Last year the students were given the 
privilege of having their hair lengthened 
to the top of the coat collar, with the 
request that the hair be kept clean and 
neatly groomed. At the same time, pant- 
suits were permitted to be worn on campus 
at specified times. The student hand- 
book specifically negated the wearing of 
tight jeans and blouses and indicated that 
no pantsuit should be worn to classes. 

However, observation has revealed the 
violation of both these privUeges. Such 
infractions create sticky problems which 
few desire to contend with. If we have 
found it difficult to control and regulate 
the hair, the dress and the pantsuits, why 
should another door be opened to invite 
chaos and confusion? Who will apply for 
the thankless job of enforcing this regu- 

Give lia iNudt 

Dear Editors: 

1 would like very much to respond to a 
letter regarding pantsuits in last weeks 
US One statement Uiat particularly 
caught my attention was that a woman 
loses her femininity when she wearsjeans. 

Femininity is a quality of a Person no^ 
someting that can be worn or ^''^^' 
by the clothes a person wears. A woman 
who has this femirane quality can rest 
Assured that a man will observe this whe- 
ther she wears a pantsuit, jeans, or a 
Sess Just as some men are not mascu- 
Une so some women are not feminine. 

There are very few women who can t be 
distSiS as such when wearing pants. And 
if a woman wearing pants or even jeans 
ivere to sit down buride r 

-Douglas Bennett 

It appears to me that this school has 
the right, within reasonable limits, to 
control the appearance of its students 
by handbook regulation, even as some 
businesses and other organizations place 
limitations upon the personnel associated 
with them, and still not be labeled legal- 
istic. This institution has the right to 
prevent its students from casting a shab- 
by image before one another and others 
who might frequent this campus. 

To say that the infractors will be 
few and easy to control is to prag- 
matically deny the inability to control 
the problems in the other related areas. 
Until the previous regulations are adhered 
to 1 believe it would be unreasonable to 
capitulate in another area. Such a pro- 
cedure is neither sound parental practice 
iior good pedagogy. To suggest that this 
problem can be handled by a student 
governing committee is to fail to face up 
to the facts. First, students, no more 
than faculty, will be standing in line 
applying for the job; and secondly, 
student infractors will probably not lis- 
ten to their peers any more than they 
listen to their faculty. Why should they? 

A secondary reason for being less 
than enthusiastic toward the advent of 
the beard is due to the attitude still 
held by some members in SDA churches 
and other churches concerning the beard. 
SMC sends student representatives to 
various churches throughout the Southern 
Union, and some of the people in these 
churches expect our students to look 
nicely groomed. It may be we would 
be antagonizing some folk unneces- 
sarily. However, this is not my primary 
objection m this article. My contention 
is not with the beard, but with the ex- 
cesses of the beard, and with the mabil- 
ity to adequately regulate these abuses. 

doubt very seriously that 1 would spend 
my time worrying about someting as ab- 
surd as her pants threatening my mascu- 
linity. , , 

You'U fmd that most coUege age males 
won't complain if their female counter- 
parts come to class in pants. And believe 
It or not those that are true gendemen will 
treat you like the lady diat you are no mat- 
ter what you wear. 

Men seem to be able to attend classes 
dressed rather sloppUy, unshaved, and look- 
ing as if they woke up Ave minutes betore 
they entered the classroom. Vet these men 
are generally considered to be masculine by 
the opposite sex no matter how they dress. 
Sloppiness, hopefully, is not a trait connected 
to the Victorian view of a woman, one 
sitting primarily in a chait,knees covered, hands

I The ninth regular Student Association 
Senate meeting was caUed to order at 
7-30 Monday night by Parlimentanan 

[Stew: Jones. After a devotional by 
Beckv CoUver, the senators began dis- 

I cussion of the items on the agenda. 

Debbie Lintner was voted a seat on 
the Faculty senate and Gerry Brown will 
I take Bob Zima's place. This will give an 
[ even ratio of one male member to one 
I female and one village student to one 
I dormitory resident. 

The senators were informed by Senate 
I Chairman Bob Zima that the allowing 
of beards was voted down automatically 
by a 12-12 tie in the Faculty Senate. The 
results of the poll taken in the last S. A. 
chapel were given as follows: 
! 1) With the understanding that only 
a few are likely to have beards, do you 
j approve of allowing men to have the 
option whether or not to wear beards stip- 
ulating that they be neatly groomed? 

476-yes 104-no 

2) Do you approve of women wearing 
pantsuits (not jeans) to classes and other 
school-sponsored activities, excluding 
religious events? 

468-yes 114-no 

3) Do you approve of establishing a 
student governing committee to enforce 
the dress policy? 

436-yes 128-no 

In view of the fact that pantsuits are 
\ due to come up in the next Faculty 

Senate meeting, it was moved by Julie , 
Lamson and voted in unanimously that I 
each of the senators be assigned a fac- 
ulty Senate member to talk with con- 
cerning this and any future issues com 
up that the students are extremely in. 
terested in. 

Judy Wade presented her findings 
relating to the games in the Student 
Center. Chess and checkers wUl not 
be provided but students who wish 
to bring their own will be allowed to 
do so. Rook cards will nol be per- 
mitted and any such cards found will 
be removed from the premises. The 
request for a pool tabic was denied bill I 
the aquisition of an air hockey table is I 
being looked into. Ms. Wade read ^ " 
several quotes from Ellen G. Wlutes 
books on which Dean Spears and his

ir Editors'. 

1 would like to venture to add a footnote to 
_.. issue raised in last week's editorial concerning 
tiie "Year-long controversy between SMC liberals 
and conservatives" as Miss Palmer, a persona' 
friend of mine, so aptly put it. 

First of all, there is a question which has troublci 
intermittantly for quite some time now, and 1 
believe it demands an answer. It is this: Why, 
when discussing issues even remotely related to 
religion, do we not first and foremost turn to the 
book which we claim to be the authority? 
Rather than one text to every ten opinions, I 
inclined to beheve it would be better the 
other way around (of course, that is merely an 
opinion). There is really very little the Bible 
does not talk about (not to mention certain 
other writings, some 37 times the volume of 
the Bible, which arc believed to have origiruitca 
from the same Source). 

The primary issue is this: Is Christian ignorance 
concerning evil ever justified? The Bible does gjve a 
way definite and specific answer to this question. 
Paul states in Romans 16: 19b that he wished 
Christ's followers to be "wise unto that which is 
good, and simple concerning evil." David said 
"I will set no worthless thing before my eyes. . . . 
I wiU know no evil." (Ps. 101 :3-4. NASB) and 
"Turn away my eyes from beholding vanity." 
(Ps. 119:37). Perhaps the must unsetUing text 
subject islsa. 33;15b& 16a: "He... 
tppeth his ears from hearing of blood, 
and shultcth his eyes from seeing evil; he shall 

dwell on high." Mrs. White adds: 

"Those who have that wisdom which 
is from God must become fools in the 
sinful knowledge of this age. They should 
shut their eyes, that they may see and 
learn no evil. They should close their 
ears, lest they hear that which is evil, and 
obtain a knowledge which would stain their 
purity of thoughts and acts." 

Adventist Home, p. 404. 

Now why is this so? It is because of the 
'by beholding" principle, the potency of which 
is hardly appreciated among Adventists in Gen- 
eral. We inevitably become assimilated, some 

)re, some less, to the likeness of that to which 

! expose ourselves. This is not a probability, 

is a law. Mrs. White explains: 

"By beholding we become changed. 
By. the indulgence of impure thoughts, 
man can so educate his mind that the 
sin which he once loathed will become 
pleasant to him." Testimonies, v. 2, p. 459. 

"We hear and read so much of debasing 
crime and vileness that the once-tender 
conscience which would have recoiled 
with horror becomes so blunted that it 
can dwell upon the low and vile sayings 
and actions of men with greedy pleasure." 

Testimonies, v. 3, p. 472.

Does a small, irregularly-shaped room, 
dimly lit by lightbulb candles, with a 
ceiling draped with burlap and old, worn 
lumber covering the walls and floor sound 
pretty dismal? The Yellow Deli is far 
from dismal, for it is occupied by the 
Light Brigade, a non-denominational youth 
witness team, and serves the "fruits of 
the Spirit." 

A group of about 30 young people, 
led by Gene and Marsha Spriggs, opened 
the Deli in March of 1972 after four _ 
months of prayer and hard work. It's 
main purpose is to support the activitres 
and members of the Liglit Brigade by the 
sale of food and drinks, and serve as a 
common meeting place for all Christians. 
Aside from the religious posters and music 
and casual remarks by the "employees, 
there is no witnessing program as such. 
But let it not be said that the Light 
Briaade does not witness! 

The money brought in at the Deli.goes 
to support, among other things, the 
two houses where the members reside. 
Located at 861 Vine is the Vine House 
("1 am the Vine, you are the branches ), 
where 20 single young men live and hold 
public Bible classes on Tuesday and 
Thursday evenings from 7:30-10:30 and 

Saturday at 9:00 am. 

At 835 Vine stands the Agape House 
where two married couples and seven

single girls live. According to Rick Ken- 
drick, a member of the Brigade, these 
houses are primarily centers of learning, 
preparing them for witnessing on the 
streets, at concerts, and other places. 

The main project of the Liglil Brigade 
is a monthly paper, the Freepaper. A 
potpourri ofvarious religious activities, 
Freepaper is distributed free, mainly on 
the streets. The press is supported only 
by income from the Deli and is mn by 
the Brigade, whose members hold no 
other secular jobs but also depend on 
the Deli. 

The witnessing team has traveled 
throughout Tennessee and the Southeast, 
helping other similar groups, and delis 
get on their feet. So far, small groups have 
begun at Oriando, Fla., and Rockwood 
and Bristol, Tenn. Individually, the 
members make an opportunity to 
witness by walking a mile once a week 
to some part of the city, distributing 
Freepapers and telling of their faith as 
they go. 

The Riviera Theatre has opened up 
a new opportunity for the Brigade. After 
being forced to close because of its X- 
rated entertainment, the dieatre is being 
purchased by the Brigade. They hope to 
convert it into a Christian Art Center to 
house various religious movies and plays.

represents SAAC at 

American Physical Society 


Di. Ray Hefferlin, head of SMC's 
Physics Department, recently returned 
from a four day meeting of the Ameri- 
can Physical Society in Chicago. From 
Feb. 4-7 four or five thousand physicists 
I from all over the United States met in 
the Palmer House Hotel to present the 
results of their research and to deliver 
review papers on various topics. 

Dr. Hefferlin spent most of his time 
with the American Association of Physics 
teachers, one of the four or five sections 
that were forced to meet simultaneously 
because of the enormous amount of ma- 
terial to be presented. New physics and 
science education films were ■ shown 
most of Monday , Tuesday , and Wednes- 
day, and an area about the size of one 
floor in the Student Center housed dis- 
plays of equipment and books from man 
ufacturers and publishers. 

The energy crisis was an area of prime 
importance. One review paper, for in- 
stance, showed that the National Science 
Foundation has a planned expenditure 
of S50 million on solar energy next year 
compared with a S200,000 output only 
two years ago. "But it will be many 
years," says Dr. Hefferlin, "before the^e 
various alternatives become financially 

and practically useful." 

The physics teachers from Adventist 
colleges-three from Andrews University, 
two from Loma Linda University's La 
Sierra campus, two from Pacific Union 
CoUeee. Dr. Hefferhn, and one from 
Walla WalJa College-had lunch together 
daily and discussed topics of mutual 
interest, such as improvement of the 
inter-collegiate newsletter among physiCL 
teachers and education of pre-engineering 

Dr. Donald Hull, a former physics 
teacher of Walla WallaCoUege, demon- 
strated a way of presenting musical 
scales mathmatically by writing various 
signatures on the surface of an intertube. 
Several participants brought computer 
terminals and connected them to their 
computers back home via long distance 
telephone lines. This was done so the 
teachers could operate the programs 
available to their students at schools 
as far away as Irving, California. 

The highly organized placement 

service at the meetings, reports Dr. 

Hefferlin, shows a significant decline 

from last year in the number of people 

looking for jobs. _i,^„y gems 

The tell-tale trail of a gigantic mole? 
An underground escape tunnel from 
Ivery in the classrooms? If not these 
things, then exactly what is the Plirpose 
for the ditch between Darnells Hall and 
the men's cafeteria entrance? 

Actually, the ditch was dug for the 
purpose of laying direct hardwinng 
ftom the computer science center to 
computer terminals in Darnells Hall, 
which is to inevitably result in reduced 
costs for the Computer Science Depart- 
ment and greater convenience for stu- 
l dents using computer terminals in 
Daniells Hall. 

In order to understand the reason 
for this, one must basically understand 
the operative procedures for SMC's 
computer system. For communication 
away from the computer located in 
the basement of the student center, 
computer terminals are used. Connec- 
tion with the computer from the 
terminal can be established by direct 
wiring or by telephone, the system 
presently employed. 

This latter connection is accomplished 
by an acoustic coupler, hooked directly 
to the terminal, which changes informa- 
tion into acoustical tones. These are 
picked up by a standard telephone 

State Farm Insurance 

receiver and transmitted to a 
which then reconverts the tones «lii 
information can be read, processed, 
and returned by the computer. 

In order to establish initial com 
one must dial the computer's numbii 
and be answered by the automatic 
answering device. 

It can be easily seen where cosli 
arise in this process. Acoustic coup 
rental, telephone usage, answering *■ 
vice and data set costs run appiosif 
ly $40-S45 per month. The direct 
hook-up system eliminates these cr 
as well as technical problems that 
encountered, such as the limited i 
of lines available to the computet 
Also as Robert McCurdy of tlie 
Computer Science Department expi 
if for some reason the power wen 
a student would lose all P'«'°f j, 
and have to re-establish contact* 
the computer when using the eiep 
connection, whereas there would M 
effect fiom the temporary loss 
power using direct hardwiring- 

It is estimated that tlte tota^ ^ 
afion cost of the hardwiring wi"" I 
approximately $1,000 and tha*' 
change will pay for itself by cost | 
elimination in less than a year.

New sound system 
installed in gym 

Februdry 1 3, 1 974 The Southern Accent 

, „ew sound system was recently 
iild in the SMC gymnasium m an 
■ ' I 10 eliminate some of tlie audio 
I'wenis previously encountered with 
T nid systeni. 

Kl former system with its two 
horns didn't produce the needed 
'lionability. The result, unintelligi- 
made the many and varied pro- 
s' presented in the gym less than 
I",! sound-wise. 

TTl'ie new svstem, which cost $4,000, 
Liides four smaller, more directional 

new amplifiers, and some new 
liao'phones. Also utilized in the 
Isleni is an acoustical equalizer that 

allows the higl, and/or low frequencies 
that bounce too much and cause that 
muddy, confusing sound, to be filtered 

Especially useful in deciding what 
components to use was an acoustical 
analyzer used to determine exactly 
what the gym's sound problems are. 

The installation began a week ago 
and will soon be completed. It has 
had to proceed slowly due to the many 
classes and recreational programs the 
gym hosts. The system is, however, 
functional now, even though the in- 
stallation isn't completely finished. 

Local telephone exchange to 
take action if phones left 
off hooks 

Thatcher residents 
warm up to new sauna bath 

Some extension phones in Thatcher 

■ill may soon be disconnected, accord- 

I Mr. Bill Martin, controller for 

ileplione company, in the wake of 

[number of complaints about the busy 

fically in the evenings, as 
liesnii of phones being left off the 

Whatever the reasons for this, it has 
Iwo-fold effect. First, when the 
.liver is off the hook for an extended 
liod of time, it causes the machinery 

over- heat to a high temperature 
id finally burn out. This, of course, 

;ls the telephone company and the 

Secondly, there is the problem of 
inj up the circuits. In an extension 
filcm such as the one in use at SMC, 

;re are approximately 10 line-finders 


for every 100 telephones. So when 
one receiver is off the hook, it ties 
up 10% of the out-going hues. 

The phone company is planning to 
take steps to eliminate this problem. 
When a phone is put out of order, a 
light goes on in the control cabinet. 
If the service man checking out the 
disorder finds that it was caused by a 
receiver off the hook, he may then 
disconnect the phone. 

To have the phone reconnected 
could mean a service charge of 10 to 
30 dollars. However, it is the wish 
of the phone company that this 
problem can be solved by the coopera- 
tion of the individual students without 
any action taken to disconnect the 

After many long weeks of anticipation 
by the residents of Thatcher Hall, and 
many long hours of voluntary labor 
'generously supplied by Elder K. R. Davis, 
the women's dorm finally has their own 
sauna. Formally opened on Monday 
night, January 28, the sauna, which is 
located in the recreation room, has al- 
ready been used a great deal by those 
seeking relaxation after a hard day. 

The total cost of the sauna was 
$2,600, but only half of it is bein^ paid 
this year. The remaininghalf goeson the 

Girl's Club budget for next year. The 
actual dry heat unit worth S600 was 
donated to the Girl's Club by a company 
in California that had done business with 
Elder Davis previously. 

The sauna is open every day of the 
week from 8;00am. to 1 l:C0pm.,with 
the exception of Friday night. According 
to one regular sauna user, "it's packed 
every night, but it's a grand place to re- 
lax, talk, and get to meet new people." 
And after all, isn't that what Girl's Club 
projects are all about?

A multi-screen presentation, Adven- 
tists Around the World, will be shown 
this Friday night in the Collegedale 

T The multi-screen production com- 
^ memorates the first centennial of 
]f Seventh-day Adventist foreign mission 

* work. It celebrates the growth of the 

* church's overseas force from a single 

* man, John N. Andrews, and liis two 

* children to a "global organization oper- 

* ating in 523 languages." 

* As is printed in the schedules given 

* out at the beginning of the school year, 
I Rene Noorbergen was to have spoken on 
^ tongues as part of the MV's Mysteries of 
n. God series. .But, according to Noorbergen 
D. after the college had been asked by both 

* the General Conference and the Southern 

* Union to show Adventists Around the 

World that evening, he relinquished his 
privilege to speak on that date. 

Adventists Around the World was 
created by the producers of Mission Spot- 
light. According to advertising in Southern 
Tidings (Feb., 1974) the production will 
touch the work of the church on every 
continent of Earth and present stimulating 
reports on the expansion of God's work 
during the last 100 years. It is to emphasize 
people and their stories. 

The closing sentence of an advertising 
brochure sums up the purpose of the pro- 
duction. It is to show how "Churches, 
schools, publishing houses, food factories, 
hospitals, clinics, book centers, and ad- 
ministrative offices have become a huge 
corporation fulfilling the need in imple- 
menting the gospel commission."

Volume 29 dumber 20 

Wednesday, February 20, W /4 

Tuesday, a week ago, five secret police muscled their way 
into Russian author Alexander SoUhenilsyn's (Sol-zhah-neetz- 
en) Moscow apartment and dragged the dissident writer away 
by force. Twenty-six hours later, he was escorted off a Soviet 
jetliner by eight men that brought him involuntarily to West 
Germany. ^ .. 

Our first reaction to this type of banishment is one ot dis- 
gust. Communism once again suffocates a voice crying tor 
freedom. Can there ever be freedom of expression in the 
U.S.S.R.? Will the Soviet people always be in constant fear 
of subtle or direct forms of punishment or of being labled a 
subversive for offering alternative points of view? 

According to Morris E. Salisbury, a pulitzer prize winner 
for international reporting from Moscow in 1955, "the prob- 
lem of the country as Solzhenitsyn sees it, is not that the 
body of her laws are bad. In fact, he feels they are generaUy 
as good as those in most European countries. But, he feels 
the government acts with complete eccentricity. The criter- 
ia is not the code of the law or any tradition of law. The 
criteria is simply the self-interest of individual officials or 
the presumed interest of the state." 

The question arises did Solzhenitsyn wish to leave his 
native land because of his intolerance for the U.S.S.R. gov- 
ernmental machine? It's doubtful. According to Associ- 
ated Press reports. "Solzhenitsyn, a veteran of many years 
in Stalin's labor camps always vowed he would never leave 
Russia voluntarily because he loved his native soil and his 
fellow kinsmen. It is considered unlikely that he cringed 
at the threat of being tried for high treason." 

On occasions when attempts are made to question or 
change the status quo, a recurring defense is broughf up. 
It is the same defense heard when blacks were working for 
equality in the mid sixties; it is the same defense heard 
against Japanese- Americans in Worid War 11; and it is the 
same defense the Russians put into effect when they booted 
Solzhenitsyn out of the U.S.S.R.; "if he (they) doesn't Uke 
the way things are here, let him or have him go somewhere 
closer to his liking." 

When 1 hear this attitude expressed 1 feel sad. Here is an 
individual(s) who feels his thoughts, his wants, his attitudes 
are far superior to other thoughts, attitudes, and wants 
differing from his. So. without Oying to understand or be 
openminded he flippantly states that these "subversive 
elements" should not be within his perception. In disrobing 
this attitude, we find a basic substance; selfishness, a characterist- 
ic that most of us find rather distasteful. "What I say. What 
I want. What 1 do is most important. If you disagree with 
me, you must change your mind or risk my vengence as I 
exercise my power over you." 

The reason for this editorial is because in recent weeks 
I've heard the aforementioned attitude being expressed by 
certain administiative officials, faculty members and students 
alike, directing their remarks to those who hope to change 
the current rules to allow for the wearing of beards and 
pantsuits. Ideally, we are all equal on this campus, I have 
the weapons you do in fighting for or against a certain issue 
in the proper manner. But, to simply dismiss my judgments 
and opinions as worthless and wish that I were somewhere 
else has the markings of a naiiow-minded, uneducated il- 

If I condone the wearing of beards and pantsuits, and 
if I work vigorously through the correct channels to change 
the existing rules on these two items, do 1 risk the chance 
of being alienated by my professors and administrators 
and/or branded as a "subversive" If I overUy disagree with 
forced worship attendance do 1 risk the chance of seeing 
derogatory remarks concerning my future recommendation 
papers? The hopeful answer i^o." 

At the expense of becoming over-sentimental, let me say 
that I love SMC, I love iu buildings, i love its people. I'll 
alvrays remember the rich fulfilling experiences and relation- 
ships that 1 currently am having. Just like Alexander Sol- 
zhenitsyn, I have no desire to leave this place, but I refuse to 
let it remain in a lackadaisical state of affairs. New ideas and 
attitudes will always pour in; some will be rejected and 
rightiy so; but others will inevitably be incorporated. I'll 
never regret coming to SMC and I don't think my children 
will either. ' *

Dear Editors: 

The lifestyle which the writings of Ellen 
G. White set forth is in sharp contrast to 
that of the majority of Adventists today. I 
should know because I am an Adventist and 
mine is painfully removed from that ideal. 
In the different areas which form a composite 
lifestyle (recreation, diet, social relations, etc.) 
we collectively as a church have not lived that 
hght wliich the Lord h;. in His love given us. 
The Review and Herald of December 6, 1973, 
printed a very important article, "An Earnest 
Appeal from the Annual Council." It in part, 
had this to say: "We believe that the return 
of Jesus has been long delayed, that the reasons 
for the delay are not wrapped in mysteries, 
and that the primary consideration before the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church is to reorder 

letters to the editor 

its priorities is individually and corporateiu ' 
that our Lord's return may be hastened 
rcaUzing that as a body the church is stiji 
Laodicean condition, this group of our le 
listed three factors which has made it "htT^ 
day time" for 130 years. The second facml 
has relevance for everyone. Factor 2 "Le ri I 
ers and people ate in some ways diso^edieJil 
to divme directives (the Bible and Spirit of 
ftophecy), both in personal experience an 
the conduct of the church's commission " 
Despite the negative tone of that statement I 
we know that there is a way out. If we are 
m deep earnestness about knowing and livinnl 
the will of God in our lives (the Spirit of ^f 
Prophecy included), until everything else !». I 
comes relatively unimportant, our hungeriiiE I 
and thirsting after righteousness shall be fiiiedl 
All the while, a world fOled with a multitudel 
of injustices and alternatives attempt to drae I 
us away from this goal. The Christian life is I 
definately a "battle and a march." as a favonil 
author of mine put it. r 

I'd like to amplify the question asked by I 
Tim Crosby in last week's Accent. Miy is it I 
that whenever a group gets together. discussiJ 
a matter very much related to Christian standi 
ards and principles, there is either a gieal si 
a choked uneasiness, or an out and out "Idoal 
caie!" type of attitude when someone suggesJ 
that just possibly we could turn to the SpiiiiT 
of Prophecy as seen in Ellen G. White? This | 
should make us face the question: "Do we I 
lieveall of the light, or don't we?" If youu, 
in the affirmative, the question then is, "Can| 
we be afraid of knowing too much truth?" 

Dr. Agatha Trash visited our campus this 1 
past week. I have not always been a member I 
of what some might call "her fan club." and 1 1 
got rather upset when people came backfioml 
Bible conference and glowingly spoke of sorKj 
Dr. Thrash saying this and that. My feelings I 
were this: "Who is this lady and what makei | 
her such a big authority?" 

This past week I found out. She spoke

and the S.A. now elects representatives 
o the various faculty committees nd as 
imte goes on I believe that the S.A wdl 


S A°k th',,' ™ "'^'"/\e™ents against the 
i.A^ IS that many of these branches such 
as the^ccenr, the annual, and the M V 
and the Student Representatives, seem to 
be operating so autonomously and indepen- 
dent of the S.A. that,for all practical pur 
poses,their only tie appears to be that of a 
tinancial appropriation:therefore why not 
abolish the S.A. and make provisions for 
these branches to live on. Tome this 
line of thought is very analogous to expec- 
ting the branch of a tree to bloom and 
grow after wacking off the trunk, or better 
yet, pulling out the roots of the tree. The 
fact that some of these branches do work 
independently of the Administrative body 
of the S.A., I feel is good, and any less 
independence I believe would only serve 
as an infringement on their own creativity. 
But this is not to say that because they 
exercise this degree of independence they 
are or should be any less an integral part 
of the S.A. structure, or that we should 
abolish the body to which they owe their 


Recently the Senate abolished the of- 
fice of Recreations Committee Chairman. 
To me this action was not indicative of a 
failure on the part of the S.A. structure 
to provide adequate recreation programs, 
but rather an elimination of a duplication 
of duties that was also being performed 
by the Boy's and Girl's clubs. This action 
to me illustrates the S.A.'s ability to adjust 
to a new situation, rather than any incom- 
petence on its part or the part of the Rec- 
reation Director. 

The S.A. provides a wider array of op- 
portunities for student leadership than 
does any other institution on this campus. 
And not only is this to be an opportunity 

To tie student 10 excercise leadership, 
but also serves as an educational oppop 
tunity affording him a learning experi- 
ence that is to be had nowhere else on 
campus,except through the S.A. And 
of course, anywhere that a learning pro- 
cess IS going on mistakes and bad decis- 
ions will be made. (No inferring that the 
S.A. officers are doing a bad job-just that 
the possibdity exists.) I think that all too 
often when things under the S A 's juris- 
diction don't meet with our approval, we 
lend to point to the S.A. structure as the 
EUilly source that failed, rather than to 
ihe most likely source of faUure, we the 
^tudents (S.A. officers or not), who iiave 
lailed to utilize to the full extent the 
potentialities offered by the S.A. 


After the recent unfortunate decision 
on the part of the faculty senate regard- 
ing beards at SMC, there were many who 
voiced disillusionment with the S.A. stating 
I hat it had failed in its efforts to initiate 
beards. But did the S.A. fail? In the 
Preamble the S.A. is "to serve as a voice 
of the students to the College Adminis- 
nation. In so doing the Accent printed 
articles, the student representatives voiced 
iheir convictions, the Senate sent its recom 
mendations, and the Student Body par- 
ticipated in an overwhelming poll. All the 
facits of the S.A. did their job-they voiced 
the opinion of the students to the College 
Administration which is all they were con- 
stitutionally expected to do. Considering 
this,! doubt that anyone can conclude that 
certain portions of the S.A. failed or are 
worthless and in need of abolishment. 
After all the faculty never promised to 
heed the voice of the student, as is most 
apparent in this case. 


It is true that the S.A. derives its auth- 
ority from the faculty and hence is some- 
what subservient to it. This brings up the 
point of the liberationists who would 
like to see the S.A. break away from fac- 
ulty domination and independently organ- 

into some form of Student Union cap- 
able of collecting its own dues, bargaining 
"or the student, and even throwing a strike 
or two. Rather than working as a "voice" 
under the premise of "the power of sug-

gestion, they would be able to use their 
:>tudenl Union, if need be, more like a 
fist or "club" with which to "smote 
Ihe faculty betwix the eyes" in getting 
their wishes. Under some circumstances 
an organization of this nature may have 
lis merits, but I feel thai rather than 
working logether for a smoothly oper- 
anng program, this kind of an organization 
would tend to alienate faculty and student 
And under this conslant feehng of antag- 
iinism 1 feel less would be accomplished 
in the best interests of the students. 


Recently the Student Senate, in my 
estimation, placed a milestone by voting 
to establish a system whereby each sena- 
tor is assigned a faculty Senate member, 
and as issues come up they will explain 
Ihe student views to these faculty mem-, 
bers in hopes that a better communication 
and understanding will promote the stu- 
dents interests. This will also serve as a 
medium through which the views of these 
faculty members can be transmitted back 
to the S.A. If this sounds suspiciously 
like a lobbying organization, that's because 
It is. I think that it has a place, though, 
and will be a welcome addition. 

There is still much to be said for "the 
power of suggestion," and coupled with 
ihe power of student opinion, there em- 
erges a potent force that is going to have 
10 be dealt with by the Administration. 
As the student body at SMC now stands, 
it has no better replacement that could 
be substituted as a "voice" to the Ad- 
ministration than the S.A. program that 
it now has. And any major alterations 
would only serve to restrict the students 
in one area or another. 


In my opinion, the S.A. still serves 
the student in each of the four catagories 
as set forth in the Prearnble, and is striv- 
ing to broaden and improve on its ser- 
vices to the student. From this 1 would 
maintain that if the S.A. is still able to 
allow students to function effectively 
in meeting the objectives of the Preamble, 
and I think that it does, then it is worth 
ihe time and expense to carry out an 
effective S.A. program for the Students.

1 order to have

be very feasible that students would still 
plan their share of the programs and 
chapels which are now under the auspices 
of the SA. Perhaps the social activities 
could be incorporated into the dormitory 
and married couples clubs, as was the 
lecreational branch of the SA. 

Where does the money come from to 
operate the SA? Over S35,000 of the 
SA budget comes directly from student 
dues. Any student taking eight or more 
hours of classwork automatically pays 
S26 in dues to the SA. Is he getting his 
money's worth? 

"only worthwhile production" 

As I see things, the only worthwhile 
productions of the SA are the publi- 
cations - the Soulheni Memories, the 
Southern Accent, the Joker, and the 
Campus Accent. These publications 
consume about half of the SA budget 
This money is well spent. But what about 
Ihe other half of the budget? 

The weekly Southern Accent is prob- 
ably the most recognizable production ot 
Ihe SA. The paper is the only medium 
which presents student (and even faculty) 
opinion to the general public for their 
consideration. It is an essential part ol 
SMC But does it need the mothermg 
of the SA? No, it doesn't. It could very 
well be under the supervision of the 
Communications Department. 

The other publications are also com- 
ponents of college life. The Joker pro- 
vide, the indispensable service of indexing 
Ihe student and faculty pictures into a 
handy reference book. l\^t Memories 
will in a couple of decades, bring back 
just'what its title implies - precious 
Southern memories. And the Campus 
Accent is necessary for carrying announce- 
ments of events,- lost and found items, 

''"'%ut none of these publications need 
,he motTering of the Student Association. 
Vlie^ub ications could all technici^ly be 
overseen by the Communications. English, 

Art, or other such department. Perhaps 
it would be in order, however, to set up 
a Publications Board within the student 
body to oversee the production of tlie 
publications, and to maintain student 
representation in them. The publications 
do not need the SA. 

With the exception of the publications 
Ihe present SA is operating in name only. 
The era of time has passed when the SA 
was the major voice of student opinion. 
The time has come when the SA has 
ceased to serve a useful function, just 
as once did the organization of classes. 
Class organization was finally done away 
with. How long will it be before the 
realization comes that the SA, too, has 
become outmoded? 


What is the purpose of the Student 
Association? According to the preamble 
of the Constitution of the SA, one ol 
its major purposes is to "serve as a voice 
of the students to Ihe college adminis- 
1 ration." Does the SA really fulfill this 
purpose? Before attempting to answer 
that, let us take a look at the philosophy 
and the history of the development and 
:hanges in student associations. 

Student associations have traditionally 
been a formal lobbying structure for 
students to petition their desires and 
needs to the college's faculty and admin- 

However, within the past decade, 
college campuses seem to have changed 
very dramatically. When I was in high 
school, college campuses were centers 
of revolution and rioting. Today things 
are somewhat different; students now 
attempt to achieve their goals by more 
subtle methods. 


During the era of campus revolts, a 
student association was something entirely 
different than it is today. A student 
association was once the prime medium 
ihrough which the student voice was 
heard on campus.. .Now SA'shave settled 

down to a much more run-of-the-mill 
type of routine work, doing little jobs 
liere and there that could be done with- 
out a student association. 

This is not to say that now students 
do not have grievances to present to the 
faculty. Indeed they do. But the student 
association has ceased to be the forum of 
student opinion. Now, students are full- 
tledged and voting members of the 
various faculty committees and the Faculty 
Senate. These committees, along with 
Ihe Southern Accent, provide the real 
media through which student opinions 
are effectively expressed. No longer do 
Ihe students need a student association 
lo voice their feelings or express their 


In my way of thinking, a student 
association is to the student body what a 
pacifier is to an infant. A certain feeling 
of false security comes from being assoc- 
iated with it. 

Not many years ago, SMC organized each 
class, from freshmen to seniors, by elect- 
ing class officers. Why does it not now? 
Obviously, it would be foolish to do so, 
because that form of organization from 
a by-gone era has been outmoded. 
Electing class officers for any class other 
than the seniors ceased to serve a useful 
function. Has the time come when the 
SA has reached the same level of useful- 

The SA Senate is basically a farce. A 
lot of what the Senate does is essentially 
of no value to anyone. The only real 
function of Ihe Senate is the holding of 
the purse strings for all the departments 
of the entire SA. The Senate must give 
lis stamp of approval to all budgets, 
appropriations, and special monetary 
expenditures. Aside from it being a jury 
of treasurers, the Senate is functionally 
of no value.

Forgerer aprehended by 
collegeda/e police 

I An investigation carried on by the 
i detective division of the Collegedale 
Police Department last week resulted in 
the arrest of a Rock Hill, SC man on three 
counts of forgery- 
Roger Melvin Ball, 28, was arrested 
last Thursday for the felonious passing 
1 of a forged instrument. The incident 
I occurred on Feb. 1 but was not report- 
ed to the poUce until Feb. 1 1 . Det. Lt. 
i Dave Goodman and Det. Sgt. Eddy Rob- 
I mson were assigned to the case Feb. 1 2, 
I and an anest was made two days later. 
The complaintant, Mrs. Tommie 
Caudill of Apison Pike, reported the 
theft of several personal checks to Col- 
legedale's American National Bank. The 
checks had been taken from her check- 
book when an unknown person had 
1 entered her home and had stolen some 

[jeweby and small appliances. The bank 
teller notified Collegedale police of the 

I In a police line-up, Ball was positively 
1 identified by Charles Davis, owner of 
Magnolia Pharmacy, who received one 
of the false checks. 

Collegedale police set bail for Ball at 
SIOOO. Last Friday Ball went before 
City Judge Ray Dodson for a prelimin- 
ary hearing, after which the case was 
referred to the Hamilton County Grand 

PoUce Chief Doug Keller urges all res- 
idents and business operators to report 
immediately any illegal entries, thefts,

Church investments in stocks 

Hre they Kosher? WI^KS 

Tom Dybdahl p^^j / 

"Religion and business are not two separate 
Ihings, they are one. Bible religion Is to be inter- 
woven witli all we do or say."^ "The sanctifying 
power of trutli is to abide in the soul and be carried 
»itli us to our business, there to apply its continual 
tests to every transaction of life, especially to our 
dealings with our fellow men."^ 

These quotations remind us that what we do 
,»|th our funds for investment is not merely a 
business decision. In our society, money carries 
power, for good or for evil. What we believe must 
influence our investment policies. What we do with 
our money must be related to the human and social 
needs to which the gospel. of Jesus Christ gives 
priority. What the church does with its investment 
money is a part of its overall program. 

Recognizing this fact, the Adventlst church has. 
refused to invest in companies whose products and 
services are contrary to our beliefs. We will not hold 
stocic in liquor or tobacco companies.^ It Is our way 
"We cannot stop people 
from making or using evil 
products, but we can refuse 
to profit from them." 
of saying that we will not support these enemies of 
personal health. We cannot stop people from 
making or using such products, but we can refuse to 
profit from them, and bear a clear witness before 
the world as to our position. 

But the church is also aware of other responsi- 
bilities. In a world that is increasingly torn by strife, 
dissension and sin, the church is to demonstrate 
God's way. Against injustice and oppression it must 
stand for justice and loving concern; amid racism, it 
must stand for the brotherhood of all; while men 
make war, it must stand for peace. 

These issues are not irrelevant "social" issues; 
tliey lie at die heart of the gospel. For they focus 
on the crucial point: do our lives exemplify the 
truths to which we give lip service? Are we indeed 
examples of Christ, healers in a sick world? 

These questions apply also to our business deal- 

By the terms of our stewardship we are placed 
under obligation, not only to God, but to 
man. . . 

These truths are not for the closet more than 
for the counting room. The goods that «« handle 
are not our own, and never can this fact safely be 
lost sight of. We are but stewards, and on the 
discharge of our obligation to God and man 
depend both the welfare of our fellow beings and 
our own destiny for this life and for the life to 

Consequently, if the church is to invest large 
"ims of money, it must bear additional burdens. We 
must be faithful. Since we receive the dividends 
ram corporations, we have a moral responsibility 
"!■ the manner in which these profits are made. 
Also, we are called to witness. Part of our task is 
see that those who hold economic power-the 
,^^^'\ °f corporations-are continually made 
ware of the demands of the gospel in their sphere.

'"« we live only by grace. 

As Seventh-day Adve;ntists, we look-forward to 
he future with hope. For a solution to man's prob 
lems, we seek not human remedies in this world, but 
a world in which God has promised to make all 
things new. At the same time, we live in this world 
and are called to be Christians in our relationship to 
It and to our fellow men. What we do now deter- 
mines whether we shall be fit citizens for heaven. 

And so the challen:ge faces us. As yet, we have 
not given much thought to how liiis relates to 
investments. In the current General Conference 
Working Policy there is no mention of any non- 
economic criteria for investing.' It is no doubt 
assumed that those responsible will invest in 
harmony with church standards, since the first item 
makes plain that the "employment of honest, 
sincere Christian men and women is the best 
security that can be obtained in the safeguarding of 
funds." But even this places stress only on the 
safety of the money. 

Given the complex nature of the problem, and its 
implications for us all, it seems that another look at 
some issues might be in order. Let us focus briefly 
on some crucial areas of Christian concern in invest- 

The Christian recognizes that wars will grow 
worse and worse, and will continue until the end of 
time. (Matthew 24:6, 7; Luke 21 :9, 10). As much as 
we may pray and work for world peace, it is false 
eschatology to believe that it will be achieved. At 
the same time, we believe that the gospel of Jesus 
Christ is a gospel of peace, that stands in opposition 
to war. 

in America today we see an increasing swing 
toward militarism. More and more money is being 
spent on weapons and defense. The Pentagon 
budget for 1971 was larger than the entire federal 
budget was in 1957. "America has become a 
"So far the church has not 
seriously considered the question." 
militaristic and aggressive nation. Militarism in 
America is in full blood. . ."' How should a 
Christian investor respond? 

We cannot stop war, and it is futile to believe 
that we can. And as citizens of America, participat- 
ing in its life, we cannot avoid contributing to war. 
But with investments, it goes beyond that. A look at 
the General Conference Investment Fund shows 
holdings in 13 of the top 60 Department of Defense 
contractors for fiscal 1971. We do not invest in 
liquor, because we oppose its use, and because we 
do not believe that profiting at the expense of 
another is in harmony with the gospel. 

We cannot escape all responsibility for war, but 
we can refuse to profit from it. Some of our tax 
money may support war, but none of our invest- 
ment money need support it. We can refuse to 
invest funds in companies which are profiting from 
the manufacture of products which destroy both 
human life and natural resources. 

But so far the church has not seriously con- 
sidered this question. With our investmetits in these 
weapons manufacturers, the church has placed itself 
in a position of complicity with their acts. We have 
a special obligation to question that comphcity. It is 
important, too, for us to consider our influence, 
"the moral aura of legitimacy that investments in 
the military field are given by religious involve- 

""'"evll options are possible for the church which 
wants to reduce its influence. In March 1972, at a 
General Board Meeting in Elgin, III tfie Church of 
the Brethren voted to divest itself of all investments 
n corporations producing defense or weapons- 
related products. In addition, the church decided 

not to purchase any new government securities that 
may channel funds into military appropriations. The 
church then sold stocks and bonds worth nearly two 
million dollars in compliance with the decision. 

Other churches have taken different approaches 
In October 1970, die Committee on Financial 
Investments for the United Church of Christ issued 
a report entitled Investing Church Funds for 
Maximum Social Impact.' They recommended that 
a church investor should through appropriate 
means make known to those corporations, which 
make armaments, and in which it holds stock, the 
desire that production of armaments be reduced and 
that die priorities of national productivity be 
changed."'" They particularly recommended action 
in the case of: 

1. those corporations whose primary business 
(50 percent or more) is armament; 

2. those corporations which actively seek govern- 
ment policies which maintain a high level of 
defense spending; 

3. those corporations involved in the production 
of the specific weapons systems and war 
material criticized by the General Synod.' ' 

But merely considering the percentage of 
business a company does with the military may be 
misleading. For example, although AT&T does less 
than six percent of its business with the military, 
that represents over $931 million on contracts. 
Compare that with the United Aircraft Corporation, 
vrhich does over thirty-seven percent of its business 
with the military, yet holds contracts worth sixty 
million dollars less than AT&T. And while Depart- 
ment of Defense contracts represent only two per- 
cerit of General Motors' business, GM makes 
Sheridan Tanks, M-16 rifles, and M-1-09 howitzers. 

Although there may not be any clean stocks, a 
relative choice can be made. The January-February 
issue of the Economic Priorities Report' ^ pointed 
out that of Fortune magazine's list of the 500 top 
U.S. corporations, 110 had few or no military con- 
tracts ($100,000 or less). 

Public sentiment on the question is worth noting. 
The Phladelphia Enquirer, in its regular "People 
Speak" feature, asked: "Is it proper for churches to 
invest money in military contracts?" Out of 2,400 
callers, 63.9 percent said no. Of those who said yes, 
one asked: "Why not? Churches have a history of 
being hypocriti(^l." jo be continued

Dear Editors: 

1 recently paid a visit to the VM, wearing 
clean blue jeans and a shirt neatly tucked in. 
On my way, I \vas confronted by a faculty mem- 
ber who informed me in no uncertain terms that 
I was the worst "jeans offender" on the WHOLE 
campus. I find this hard to accept, in light of my 
conservative estimate that over 50% of the male 
students of this institution wear faded, frayed 
blue jeans to class every day. As a female, I am 
not allowed to wear even nice slacks to classes, 
much less jeans to the grocery store! 

Also along these lines falls the matter of gym 
wear. While the men wear silky little short shorts 
for their intramural games, the women are re- 
quired to wear bermudas passed by the PE in- 
structor. Cutoffs and unhemmed shorts are 
strictly out. is it just me, or are there some 
gross inconsistencies taking place?

Dear Editors: 

I feel mightily moved to reply to 
Ms. Buckner's letter which appeared in the 
Feb. 13 issue of this publication. 

1 confess to be at a loss as to how her 
comment that the wife"is" responsible 
for 55% of the average American fami- 
ly's expenditure's helped her argument 
in any way. To the contrary it seemed to 
me. in the average American family it 
is the husband who is the bread-winner 
and so naturally while he is busy earn- 
ing money his wife should make use of 
her time and be responsible enough to 
at least go to the store and buy some 
groceries. It's possible, though, that Ms. 
Buckner was trying to earn some credit 
for females by noting that they spend 
only 55%. 

Just incidentally, in passing, let me 
mention that one or two successful 
commercials have been male produced. 
To my knowledge no one has serious- 
ly acxused females of being totally 
devoid of creativity. 

How many of the rirefighters, po- 
lice officers, telephone repair person- 
nel, and a host of other vital personal- 
ities who walk city streets at night arc 
women? (Note: that's city STREETS 
where it is deilnitely dangerous, not 
locked safely away inside some se- 
cure office building. Of course there 
is a certain contingent of women out on 
the streets at night, but we won't 
take up a discussion of their reasons 
for being there in this correspondence.) 

Ivls. Buckner states: "The weaker 
sex must endure the traumatic and pain- 
ful experience of childbirth." Must? 
Without choice? Come now. Further- 
more, if males were to "endure" such 
a rewarding and fulfilling pain as I 
understand chUdbirth to be, 1 really 
don't think very many would complain 
too terribly bitteriy. And are there no 
males who might take some of the res- 
ponsibility of birth control, or are we all 
a pack of brutes with no self control? 

As for "raging hormones", would Ms 
Buckner be so kind as to make avail- 
able the source of that information, 
or is it a male trait attribution of her own? 
! ve never heard a male say he expected 
females to "always function efficiently 
and calmly", indeed, many have thought 
such an event a pleasant surprise. 
. Although Ms. Buckner didn't say it 
in so many words, she implied female bio- 
logical superiority. The statistics proving 
female s greater life expectancy are of 
course, undeniable. But is this bioligi-

the editor that are perhaps just a teeny, weenyl 
bit more thought out and congruous than we' 
seen. Probably most important, how about 
raising the female image, not lowering it. 

Not all males (or females either for that 
matter) agree that the sexes can be equal, but L 
typical Women's Lib type activities only antje-l 
onize instead of accomplish. "Come now, let 
us reason together" is an excellent rule to' 
follow (I take it Ms. Buckner was attempting 
reason). But please, let's have rati inal reaso[|

As for me, I say: "Come on sister, let's be |

Sex-a iornuM kim 

Dear Editors: 

le of last week's editorials this ques- 
posed: Why don't we heat more 
about sex. and deal with this topic 
•nore openly? 

Granted there are times when this topic 
should be discussed. 1 think there is a good 
reason why illicit sex is not generally consid- 
ered a suitable topic for open social discussion.| 
The reason is found in Ephesians five. 

Verse three states "But fornication, and 
all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be 
once named among you, as becometh saints." 
Now the phrase "Let it not be once named 
among you" does not. as I had always tlioughl 
mean "Let it not be once found among you," 
Rather, it means "Don't even talk about sudl | 
things." (Phillips). 

Fornication is the Biblical term for any 
kind of illicit sex, pre- or extramarital, Paulo J 
saying these things are too shameful to 
about-"Thcy were not even fit for discussion | 
among saints." (SDA Comm.) In verse 
Paul re-emphasizes this: "For it is a shi 
to speak of those things which are doni 
in secret." . , 

The modem trend of throwing off s"™'" , 
ventions and inhibitions and disposing of £upl-l 
cmisms in quest of frankness is good to a poinif 
but such good things are usually carried too ijT 
Good taste is still the standard. There are bliu| 
certain topics which, to use Paul's expressi""' 
•shameful" to talk about. 1 don't thuik inii 
would exclude a sermon on, say, the place 
sex in marriage, which is a topic I have seen 
advertised, although I didn't attend, in a m" 
SDA church, , „,n i 

Now that I have finished setting the won» 
straight(?), i would like to add that the last 
two issues of the Accent were the hW ,™"^.

I am one of the positive team that would 
like to have pantsuits integrated into classroom 
and Saturday night attire. 

1) Being able to wear pantsuits to the student 
center after 7 p.m. but not to the library is very 
inconvenient. Many times after two or three hour; 
of studying at the hbraiy, I'd like to go play chess 
or ping pong for a half hour or so but can't do 
cither very well in a dress. (Ever try playing 
chess on the floor m a dress?) Why are pants 
allowed on Sundays but not on weeknights (at 
least)? Is it because we feel the need to keep up 
with the outside world via a reversed "Blue Law?" 

2) Besides the fact tiiat probably no girl will 
wear pants "all the time," if a girl's only reason 
for wearing a dress rather than pants is to show - 
her legs in an effort to be sexy, feminine or 
whatever else you may label it, I understand 
diere are still some can-can halls in the world. 

3) Pants are warmer, more modest and 
much more practical to wear to labs and 
other various activities. 

In closing, personal opinion is that we 
at least have the choice as to whether or not 
we want to weelr pantsuits. Those who will 
feel their femininity threatened or have a moral 
thing about them can stick to their dresses. A 
lot of us would like to be able to wear both.

NewGeneral education program proposed 

Volume 29 Number 21 

Wednesday, February 27, 1974 

Souilicrn Missionary College 
Collepcdale, T-cnnessco ,17315 

I Be long-standing and well-known 
L of SMC that every student must 
lit Humanities sometime after liis 
lishnian year may soon be obsolete. 
Lnsgainitniay not. It all depends 
Uow the new proposed guidelines 
biihe general education program are 
wived by the faculty. 
I He General Education Committee, 
Ler the leadership of Dr. Wayne 
iijileVere, has been busy since 1972 
liking on an acceptable plan for the 
mngijig of the general education re- 

I The most recent proposal will be 
t before the Faculty Senate in 
r future, and if it's approved 
llhen go before the entire faculty. 
himajor changes in this proposal, 
Icompared to the standing require- 

1 1) A reduction of the total hours 

wd for graduation from 1 28 to 

Jfora BA or BS degree. This would 

lt3B««stndenls to take only 15 hours 
usemesters, rather than 16 hours 
kry semester in order to graduate in 
pt years, 

l2)Areduction of general education 
Itve broad calagories: a) Man's God, 
Pan^s Culture, c) Man's Environment, 
Pan's Communication Needs, e) Man's 
Ijiiiiand Recreation. Each of these 

I) ^iiswould have to be represented to 

some extent in each student's program 
of study. 

3) A more individualized program, in 
which each student has the freedom to 
select those courses which will be of the 
most benefit to him in his chosen field. 

4) Provision for departments to 

develop new courses or reorganize old 
ones to meet the needs of today's student. 
This plan may also include the adoption 
of a general Associate Arts degree pro- 
gram. . 

5) That general education require- 
ments shall be met outside the Student's 
major requirements. (The two sides of 
this question have not yet been brought 
before the faculty.) 

If this program was adopted, it would 
include the selection of a qualified person 
to be in charge of the total general edu- 
cation program on the campus. Also, each 
student would have to develop his in- 
dividualized program with the help of a 
faculty advisor, and submit his proposed 

plans to his major department for ap- 
proval by tlie end of the first semester 
of his sophomore year. 
The faculty, so far, has shown signs of 
being quite divided over the issue of fie-;- 
ible general education as suggested by the 
committee, as opposed to structured gen- 
eral education as it now exists. Those 
advocating a fiexible program point out 
that we can't require a large number of 
general courses and expect every student 
to fit that mold. They question the pro- 
gressiveness of our present system in that 
many students are forced to take courses 
that will be of no value to them in their 
chosen fields. 

On the other hand, those faculty mem- 
bers in favor of a structured program in- 
sist that there is a "unit of knowledge 
basic to all students "-certain courses 
we ALL need, and that to individualize 
lOUr programs will leave nothing more than 
"an educational cafeteria line." They 
also mention that to decide on a general 
education program during the freshman 
or early sophomore year will be a waste 
of time for that large percentage of stu- 
dents that change their major. 

Dr. VandeVere feels that perhaps a 
compromise will be reached where the 
flexible program is adopted with only 
three or four courses required of every- 
one. Those three or four courses are 
still under consideration, but might 
possibly be Humanities, Foundations 
of the Advent Movement, Health and 
Life, and the first half of Freshman 

At any rate, if the proposed pro- 
gram IS accepted, it wouldn't go into 
effect until the 1975-76.schooI year, 
so those who were hoping to evade 
Humanities had better face the hard, 
cold fact that it's going to be around 
for quite some time. _raa„,> Ki„rf 

CARTA is here to stay 



'C!„y'"^^"'''"-March 6 through I 2. studei 
'"'""^ipatelun-fiiled activities. 

The Chattanooga Area Regional Trans- 
portation Authority (CARTA) is here to 
stay, at least for awhile, inspite of rumors 
ro tlie contrary. That's the message from 
a CARTA spokesman in Chattanooga, Mr. 
Blalock, who said that for the time being, 
ihc plan is to continue the eight runs per 
day on the Collegedale line. 

Mr. Blalock quoted a survey, taken three 
,,, four weeks ago, saying the use from the 
aid of the Brainerd run to Collegedale 
wasn't substantial. But this lack of interest 
isnt to say the line will be .scrapped or that 
,11 tempts aren't being made to interest 
more prospective riders. 

(lien McColpin. Collegedale city attorney 
IS working to institute a "park and ride" 
l-icilitv at the Collegedale church parknig 
lot li is hoped this will stimulate more 
use of the bus. especially by those who 
would normally drive their cars to town. 
Ihc bus cost is S.50 one way-probably 
cheaper than buying gas. 

■■Contact made with the church has 
ihown that the church board is interested, 
jut more definitive action awaits further 
discussion," Mr. McColpin- said. 

The lack of use shown in the line causes 
ihe share that Collegedale pays to CARTA 
10 remain high to cover costs. With more 

riders this share would lessen. Mr. McColpin 
went on to say that if there is anytliing 
lacking in service or if there is a problem 
somewnere, passengers snouid contact 
him about it. He is concerned with provid- 
ing service that will interest more people. 
He also indicated an increase in use would 
probably accompany the continued worsen- 
ing of the present energy crisis. 

Mr, Blalock stated that at least one 
other line showed the same amount ( or, 
lack) of interest as the Collegedale line. 
Running a bus line costs about S 1 2 an hour. 

He said that another survey would be 
taken in a month or (wo to determine 
how much use the line had and then 
further decisions might be made at that 
time. He made reference at this point to 
cutting down the amount of runs made 
daily do Collegedale. 

CARTA is a publicly owned corporation, its interest is more on scr\'icc to the 
people than on a large return. CARTA 
operates 2S lines in llic ClialtaiUioga area. 
several of which take up some ol Ihe slack 
of the longer runs such as the Collegedale 
line. CARTA receives local and lederal 
funds, with attempts now under way 
to obtain some state support.

Are church investment 
standards tco low? 

\jMONC THE IMPORTANT questions svhich Tom 
D\ bdahls report will raise for Seventh-day Adventists, one 
in" particular stands out from the rest: "Can the standards we 
set for ourselves as a church be lower than those we set for 
ourselves as individuals?" 

XVhert war is concerned, we might restate the above ques- 
tion like this Most of us on this Christian campus would be 
shocked and angered if one student killed another student over 
a small quarrel. Without a doubt, we would agree that the 
killer was wrong. 

Yet shouldn't we also be shocked and angered that the 
corporations we, as a church, invest in help make weapons 
that are used in war? 

The question reaches back hundreds of years into history. 
For men proclaimed the gospel of Christ for hundreds of years 
in Europe and America, and also proclaimed all along that 
French Christians ought to kill English Christians in time of 

And we must not forget that in our own century t';e two 
major wars have been fought among nations that professed 
some regard or respect for the Christian religion (with the 
notable exceptions of the U.S.S.R. and Japan). 

But the question of two different standards of conduct 
does not stop at wars between Christians. It applies also to 
wars between Christians and declared non-Christians. 

In this respect, the Middle Ages were much like our pre- 
sent day. Then. Christian faced Moslem; now as some see it. 
Christian faces Communist. Yet the modem church can learn 
much from what Roger Bacon, a Franciscan scholar, said to 
the medieval church: 

". . . where Christians are victorious, no one remains to de- 
fend the conquest. Nor are unbelievers converted in this way, 
but kUled and sent to hell. The survivors of the wars together 
with their children are embittered more and more against the 
Christian faith because of those wars and are indefinitely 
alienated from the faith of Christ and stirred up to do Christ- 
ians all the harm possible. . . Besides, the faith did not enter 
into this world by force of arms but by simple preaching." 
Thus, we must look again at the question of war and our 
financial involvements with the corporations that help arm 
our country for it. 

We must now turn to the matter of oppression. 
Where South Africa is concerned, we might restate the or- 
iginal question like this: Most of us on this campus would be 
shocked and angered if a student were denied admission be- 
cause he was black. 

Yet, shouldn't we also be shocked and angered that the 
corporations we as a church invest in help sustain a country 
that denies blacks the above rights? 

Our answer to this question may have important consequen- 
ces for the Adventist message. We as Adventists beUeve in a lit- 
eral creation, and that God created Adam, from whom all men 
came. If follows, then, that all men are brothers on the basis 
of their common father. (This is not to deny the even greater 
source of brotherhood in Christ. Rom. 5:12-17, Gal. 3:26-28.) 

But as long as our church money helps to support-even in- 
directly-the oppression of our black brothers in South Africa, 
we cannot expect informed people to take seriously our mes- 
sage of a common father in Adam and a common creator in 

In a world where many people question the theological and 
ethical purity of Christian churches, the Adventist church has 
a wonderful opportunity for showing that a church which 
follows its Lord can-and indeed should-be pure. We hope 
and pray that the church will wait no longer to seize this op-

Dear editors: 

It Brieves our hearts to see an Anti-Chiist rule 
in our schools forcing men, the ones that want 
to be like me, to shave when the Master, whom 
the SDA church encourages us to look to, is a 
bearded man (Desire of Ages, page 734. Testi- 
monies, vol. 2, page 202). He also had hau to 
his shoulders (Testimonies, vol. I. page 6U). 
About every other SDA college has wised up to 
Uiis and has quit trying to be Satanic lyraiits 
on this issue. Of course. Uie people of SMC are 

It Grieves us to sec the upside down structure 
of the^verage SDA home now. too. "But. 1 
would have you know that the head of every 
inan is Christ; the head of every woman is man; 
and the head of Christ is God," 1 Corinthians 
1 1 :3. Compare this to the way the homes are 
run today; children ordering their parents a- 
round. Sometimes this carries through to man- 
hood and they continue to disrespect tlieir 

The young man who ran the Sabbath after- 
noon meeting in the game room cut me off 
after he asked a question of the audience which 
I attempted to answer. 1 found this rather rude 
and walked out mentioning it to anotlier man. 
I also found the pattern of the carpet in the 
game room satanically influenced. 

The tluee nights that 1 stayed in Talge Hall, 
students put me up and 1 stayed in good faitii. 
They even fed me food with the Lord's blessing. 

Just as I was about to leave the area, 1 hap- 
pened to pass Dean Nelson's office. He came 
rip snorting out of his office like a bull, and 
took hold of my hand leading me into his of- 
fice. He gave me the third degree, and threw 
his weight around like a tyrant dictator. He 
is young enough to be my son. 1 have a son 
about Dean Nelson's age who is a sargeant in 
the US Air Force stationed in Alaska named 
Steve. Dean Nelson knows better than to be 
so disrespectful to me. He knows I'd clean his 
clock if he tried it. May this Dean be removed. 

Outside of the grievances I've mentioned 
above, the visit to SMC was most profitable 
for all concerned. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, 
our Lord and Savior, amen and amen. 

Elder Des Cummings, Sr. will be out of 
town for a week. The Lord is giving SMC this 

letters to the editor 

time to take care of the Anti-Christ beard mat- 
ter. This letter is being typed in the Lay 
Activities Department. 

May I add that Elder Hensen was so kind 
and gracious to take me into his home last 
night for supper. He has an excellent wife and 
hvo sons. He then drove me to a fashionable 
motel for the night and I had the privilege to 
see the last half of the movie "The Ten Com- 
mandments," with no interference from others 
May the Lord help you to straighten up the 
Satanic encounters. I hope you can have it 
where the men can be free to grow beards 

It will be a wonderful thing when the women 
are ladies once more and wear their dresses as 
God described by God in Testimonies, vol. 1 
page521 and Testimonies, vol. 1 page 464. etc. 
The dress should overlap the boot, so it should 
be about halfway between the knee and on I 
the floor. Then when on the rostrum men won't | 
have to look at their panties etc. Have the SMC 
women any shame about them??? 

In closing. I pray for the church to get back j 
to the old standards and please God. '

Dear Editors: 

I was definitely moved to write you con- 
cerning the letter Mr. Owens wrote to you 
pertaining to Ms. Buckner's. 

1 felt he could have been a litti?less biased 
and much more tactful in demonstrating his 
opinion. If reverbration type letters are to be 
written for the "column" they should not only 
be tactful but also void of sarcasm demonstrated | 
by his and other letters previously submitted. 

We may have the right to our own beliefs and | 
lifestyles, but do we have the right to chastise 
another human's "rights" just because his or 
hers differs from ours?

Oh, no, the pantsuit issue rides again 
nd I am caught in the race. I appreciate 
the vote of confidence that my silent 
minority or is it majority (hard to tell) 
has extended to me by asking me to 
support the wearing of pants by women 
tor general campus wear. It is my under- 
'standing that many have been fearful of 
this task, but I will forge ahead and bear 
tlie burden. As my students would say 
You need your head examined." The 
lollowmg are my thoughts alone, not even 
my husband influenced me! 

Since I've been on the Senate for the 
last two years, on the Female Dress Com- 
mittee last year, and on tlie Student Af- 
fairs Committee this year, I see the issue 
of not allowing the wearing of pantsuits 
in the classroom, library, cafeteria, and 
Wright Hall falling into three main cate- 

The first is the matter of control. Now, 
I will have to agree that control is basic 
and most important to all aspects of life. 
Since the students have been granted the 
privilege of wearing slacks and pantsuits 
for leisure, there have reportedly been 
some who have taken advantage of the 
rule that says, "no jeans." Many types of 
jeaned legs have been seen at the shop- 
ping center, along the sidewalks, and in 
front of the Hnrms

My question is, how many young 
women that we see in jeans are actually 
our students? How many girls are there 
that actually offend this rule? Until we 
know this, how can we then penalize the 
majority (1 believe) that obey the rule. It 
appears that we get overwhelmed with 
what the offenders do and consequently 
negatively reward everyone instead of 
positively rewarding the upholders of the 
law and taking care of the few offenders. 
As Eric Hoffer said, "We are more prone 
to generalize the bad than the good. We 
assume that the bad is more potent and 

The second category is "Our Image." 
Does our image (whatever that means) 
increase Christianity? Are we hiding be- 
hind our external appearance so that we 
don't have to really come to grips with 
our Christian deficiencies in CONSTRUC- 
SHIPS? It is much easier to look at a per- 
son's exterior and judge him as good or 
bad than to sit down, get to know him, 
and find out wnat his behavior (which 
might be disobeying the dress code) means. 

Nice fitting slacks, pants, or whatever 
you call them can look as befitting as any 
dress. Not everyone on this campus looks 
jreat in dresses, or skirts. How these 
«ung ladies look depends upon their back- 
ground, finances, and mental and spiritual 
outlook. The same would be true for the 
way they would look in slacks. Those who 
look ill dressed in skirts will probably ap- 
pear that way in pants. 

The last category is the concern that 
the girls will lose their femininity. If they 
don't have it by now, they'll never have it, 
and if they have it, they won't lose it by 
wearing slacks. Femininity is a learned pei-- 
sonality trait as much as how we eat, sleep, 
play, or relate to other people. Now, if the 
concern is that those girls who already tend 
to be masculine will appear more so, I 
strongly disagree. You've already noticed 
their peculiarity while they were wearing what will the wearing of pants 
do differently? 

Young ladies, middle aged ladies, and 
older ladies can all look feminine and lovely 
in pants just as they do in dresses. They 
won't give up their dresses completely if 
pants come in. There are purposes for 
both and it would be nice if we were given 
credit for using good taste and intelligence 
dealing with our wearing apparel. □

Last Thursday night die speaker at joint

^cene in his sermon against crime. In mention-

'We all hope he can weather the storm." 

I am not sure that 1 agree. It may be pos-

Ideals and principles of our country conflicts 
with our loyalty to the person of the President. 
1 find myself wondering if our democratic re-

agree we have a moral crisis?) could not be 
best served by getting to the bare facts of the

in Boston's inner city. 

♦luST AS WAR will continue to the end of 

time, we know from Scripture that racism, injustice, 

and oppression will continue and grow worse. For 

their source is the selfish heart of man, and until 

men are transformed by the grace of Christ they will 

continue to exploit their brothers. But this does not 

stop us from calling these things sin, and living in 

opposition to them. The message of the gospel is a 

message of liberation for all men. While on earth, 

Christ identified Himself with the poor and 

oppressed, and He asks His people to do the same. 

The accounts of every business, the details of 

ever>' transaction, pass the scrutiny of unseen 

auditors, agents of Him who never compromises 

with injustice, never overlooks evil, never 

palliates wrong. "If thou seest the oppression of 

the poor, and the violent perverting of judgment 

and justice . . . marvel not at this matter; for He 

that is higher than the highest regardeth." "There 

is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the 

workers of iniquity may hide themselves."' 

One area where many companies practice 

injustice and oppression is in their employment 

policies-especially with regard to minority peoples. 

The Christian stockholder is not a policeman. But it 

is his responsibility to see that the companies he 

supports with his money are concerned about their 

employees, about equal opportunity, about putting 

minority people in leadership positions, and are 

seeking to eliminate structures that help bind and 

oppress men. 

A related issue currently being considered is that 
of investmenu in companies that do business in 
South Africa. A look at the General Conference 
Investment Fund shows holdings in 19 companies 
with major investments in South Africa. Many 
aspects of the question are complicated. But some 
are not. South Africa is not the only nation in the 
world with problems of racial justice. Nonetheless, 
it is one of the few nations in which an official 
policy of white supremacy is in action. It imposes 
inferior status on some of God's children solely on 
the basis of their color. Apartheid uansposes what 
the Christian knows to be wrong into a right 

Several issues are involved here: the policies of 
the South African government, the policies of 
American corporation in South Africa, and the 
effea which American business may have on South 
African policies. 

The first issue seems clear. In South Africa, 19 
percent of the people-all whites— impose their will 
upon the blacks and coloreds who make up the rest 
of the population. Their doctrine is white 
supremacy. "We want to keep South Africa white 
. . . 'keeping it white' can mean only one thing, 
namely white dominance, not 'leadership,' not 
'guidance,' but 'control,' 'supremacy.' "^ 
■k Only one conclusion can be made. "Based on our 
y understanding of the Scriptures and our firsthand 
knowledge of the situation in South Africa, we are 
convinced that any cooperation with or strengthen- 
ing of apartheid is contrary to the fundamentals of 

The next issue is more difficult Are American 
corporations, despite government policies, making a 
positive contribution toward the improvement of 
conditions for blacks in South Africa? Or are they 
simply fitting in with the prevailing practices of 
their South African counterparts? 

The companies say they are improving things. 
Polaroid Corporation,* after considerable debate, 
decided lo remain in South Africa. On January 13, 
1971, Polaroid took full-page ads in 27 newspapers 
to explain their position. They announced plans to 
"improve dramatically the salaries and other bene- 
fits of their non-white employees" and "u-ain non- 

white employees for imporUnt |obs in the com- 
bes of their business associates. They argued that 
?o^Lave the country would leave them with no hope 
of changing anything there 

After one year, Polaroid announced that it was 
r^nt nu ne its program, concluding, "Although ,n a 
«ar's t me the vlble effects on other companies 
^ro r ex errment have been limi^d^e praaiu 
achievement, in salaries, benefiB f"" edu^'^"^ 
have shown what can be done. In this respect trie 
experiment has exceeded the expectations of 

"'Maii'y others disagree. Some other examples of 

the behavior of American corporations ,n South 

Africa are worth noting. Newmount Mining, vvhich 

conuols the Tsumeb Mine, earned $15 million 

profit in 1970, but paid black workers an average 

income of $28 a month.= Surting w^e for blacks 

in Chrysler's Cape Town plant is .f« a nionth 

Minimum subsistence level for a family is $106 per 

month. In the Caltex plant, seven of eight ffadeso' 

jobs available to blacks pay wages below this level. 

In addition: ... 

American corporations reflect the apartheid 

system in their general practices. All facilities in 

U S. corporations' plants in South Africa have: 

a) racially segregated (and not equal) facilities; b) 

all the best jobs are reserved for whites, and no 

black man may ever supervise any white, no 

matter what his skills are; c) the black trade 

unions, such as they are, are powerless; arid d) 

employment of men under the migratory labor 

system who may not live with their wives and 


All of this is not surprising when one discovers 
that in a study conducted by the Charles St. 
Thomas Group in 1959, only 10 percent of US 
businessmen interviewed in South Africa felt that 
apartheid was wrong.' 

Others argue that even this avoids the real ques- 

In a country like South Africa, where the 
ruling class is united in its determination to 
defend the principle of white supremacy, eco- 
nomic expansion can be controlled and directed 
to ensure the preservation of the established 
"national idea" of those in power. Since the 
whole purpose of apartheid is to defend the 
existing power structure, which ensures total 
political, military and economic control in the 
hands of a minority, any meaningful changes in 
apartheid would mean the eventual abandonment 
of white supremacy.' 

Some churches have been willing to act on this 
question. Last year, five major denominations- 
Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Baptists, United 
Church of Christ, and Disciples of Christ-held a 
press conference to announce that they would 
submit similar resolutions to six major U.S. corpora- 
tions that do business in South Africa-Gulf Oil 
Mobil Oil, Goodyear, GE, IBM, and GM. Rather 
than asking for withdrawal, the resolutions asked 
for full disclosure of operations, to see if their 
presence has indeed been a positive contribution to 
the country's progress. It was the first step in a 
campaign calculated to raise public opinion about 
American business presence in South Africa. 

According to Reverend Everett W. Francis, 
public affairs officer for the Episcopal Church's 
Executive Council and one of the prime movers of 
the action, they "don't expect to succeed. We're 
filing the resolution because it's right" But already 
IBM and Mobil have voluntarily agreed to disclose 
the details of their operations in South Africa, and 
the proxy statement will not be presented at their 

In conclusion, the Church is the only institution 
that doesn't have to protect its capital. For the life 
of the church depends, not on its monetary success, 
but on its faithfulness in following its Lord. If we 
are as certain of the future as we say that we are, we 
should be free to live boldly and creatively in the 

Some analysts today, including Polaroid Cor- 
poration and the U.S. State Department are pre- 
tending that if General Motors and other U.S. 
companies suddenly became equal-opportunity 
employers in South Africa they would no longer 
be accomplices in apartheid. Of course such a 
claim only presents half the story. Would a U.S. 
company in Nazi Germany providing strength 
and health to the German economy be freed 
from all responsibility if it equitably employed 
lews on its staff in the German subsidiary? The 
thought boggles the mind! To the extent that 
U.S. corporations are agents which support and 
strengthen the South African economy they are 
also responsible for the strength of apartheid. A 
healthy economy strengthens white control, 
while imperviousness to economic sanctions, 
white ability to keep blacks oppressed. As U.S. 
companies contribute toward that economic 
strength they become automatic accomplices in 
perpetuating the racist status quo, a fact which 
no amount of Polaroid-type public relations in 
the U.S.A. can wipe out"^ 

A final consideration is the effect upon the 
company itself. Any investment in South Africa by 
a U.S. company involves the expenditure of con- 
siderable capital. Whatever the intent of an invest- 
ment, when the company begins to profit from its 
investment, it ends up with a vested interest in the 
economic and political stability of the country 
where its plants operate. So U.S. business interests 
become tied up with the interests of the minority 
which imposes its will on South Africa. 

The last issue is debatable as wellr It is easy-and 
conscience soothing-to believe that by being in 
South Africa, a business can help to influence and 
change government policies. "No sacrifice is 
demanded, no conflict, no suuggle; just up the 
investment and the profits, and the change will 
inevitably come."' But this ignores the real 
dynamics of the struggle in South Africa, 

I believe that the current policy of the Seventh- 
day Adventist Church in its corporate investments 
represents both unfaithful witness and untaithru 
stewardship. I believe that our use of investment 
monies compromises the gospel we preach. Ano 
thus I believe that it is an important issue for every 
member. , ,,, 

It may seem like a small thing. But as jes" 
reminded us: "He that is faithful in that which 
least is faithful also in much" (Luke 16:10). Andii 
we are not faithful in that which is least, it will « 
impossible for us to be faithful in that whicn 
much. Q

At 7:30 p.m. last Monday night, the 
tenth regular SA Senate meeting was 
called to order by parliamentarian 
Stephen Jones. Before discussing the is- 
sues outlined in the agenda, the floor 
was given to David Bryant who clarified 
first semester actions of the Recreation 
Committee, which was recently dissolved. 
After explaining many accomplishments 
of the committee of which he was chair- 
man, Mr. Bryant also explained the reason 
for no Hawaiian flagball all-star game and 
why no trophies were given out during 
first semester. An insufficient number of 
team captains returned M.V.P. (most val- 
uable player) slips, accounting for the 
lack of an all-star game, while a passage 
was read from Mrs. White about the school 
policy concerning the giving of trophies. 
According to Mrs. White, the purpose of 
recreation is not to bring glory to one's 
self, but to refresh and build up mentally 
and physically. 

The first point of the agenda was pre- 
sented by Haskell Williams, who reported 
on the activities of the Student Initiative/ 
Resources Fund. As one will recall, $200 
was appropriated to tliis fund as an SA 
project, for the use of students who need 
financial assistance for some project they 
themselves are involved in. Mr. Williams

revealed how twelve students have recently 
started a project called the Summit Pro- 
ject, which uses the heaJth-evangeHsm ap- 
proach in giving bible studies. They have 
asked for an appropriation from the fund 
to defray expenses they have encountered 
for materials, etc. 

Roland Marsh then posed the question 
on the second point of the agenda, "Should 
the responsibilities of the President and 
Vice-President be combined into one ex- 
ecutive office?" Although the President 
has no specific duties outlined in the 
working policies of the constitution, it is 
his duty to supervise all the various com- 
mittees under Mm and make sure every- 
thing is functioning properly and flowing 
smoothly in the Student Association. It 
was decided tliat the responsibility and 
work entailed in each of these important 
offices would be too much of a burden 
on one individual. 

Duane Hallock then put in a request 
on behalf of the Southern Accent for 
funds to bind all old issues of the Accent. 
Thirty years of back issues need to be 
bound, and several years can be bound 
in one volume. The estimated cost was 
$7.50 per volume, or approximately 
% 1 1 2.50 total cost. After brief discussion, 
this proposal was voted upon and passed. 

The last area discussed before adjourn- 
ment was the announcement of the sched- 
ule for the election of next year's SA of- 
ficers. The schedule approved was as fol-

Travel Lecturer 

Don Cooper to present| 


Beaulieu. Vice President. 

For the Asking 

Travel lecturer, Don Cooper, wiU re- 
turn to SMC tlris next Saturday night at 
8 pm. in the physical education center, 
presenting the film "Montana wtah 
follows the traU of Lewis and Clark to 
wad the Pacific, over land and water. 
Much of it was filmed in a virtually un- 
known wilderness of towering mountains 
aXaslringwlrite water rivers, .msur- 
passed scenic beauty, history, a ouch of 
humot and some spectacular vyildhfe 
equences will be included m ti^ep-gram. 

Cooper has been coming to SMC tor 
nine years; this will be Iris sixth appear- 
ance, wliich makes him tire most per. 

formed person on tW^ 9^™?"^' "f'j",,,, , 
I being here last year with Trails it tne 
Mountain West." 

TOs past semester the SA Senate voted 
(on studem approval by poll) to set up a 
Student Initiative/Resources Fund with an 
iitial appropriation of S200. The pur- 
pose of this fund is to allow studems to 
become involved with community activ- 
ities in a variety of manners. Those cur- 
rently involved or just contemplating such 
a project (or small endeavor), should check 
with the Initiative/Resources committee 
for fmancial support. The committee is 
small enoi^ (three members) to act 
quickly upon requests, yet it has the sup- 
Sort of the SA Senate as its sponsor. The 
members are Nita Haight, Gary Eldndge, 
and HaskeU WUUams (Chaiman). 

One example of such a plan is the Sum- 
mit project. Several individuals (the 
committee operates on a "no name 
poUcy) had Bible Study interests m the 
aea and others had different types of con- 
tacts These dozen students decided to 
try a low key "health approach" to evari- 
eeUsm First they distributed home-made 
bread of their own and asked if the fami- 
hes would be interested in learning to bake 
bread. There was good interest, so they 
are continuing to plan such a "bread 

school." In *e meantime, they irmted 
the chUdren of these families to SMC lor 
a "natural foods" supper, consistmg ot 
fruits, nuts, etc. Further plans are being 
made at their weekly meetmg at the Stu- 
dent Chapel. 

Ideas may have nothing m common 
with the above project, place, pohcy or 
plan; but if worthy, and help is needed to 
Bet started, the committee should be seen. 
To receive funding for projects, a request 
form is required and can be obtained from 
any of the committee members or at the 
SA Executive Office; it should then be 
filled and returned. The committee meets 
weekly (or sooner if the request is urgent) 
Upon approval, persons will be notified ana 
will receive a "grant" from the SA. The 
committee is. Jience responsible to the Sen- 
ate for its actions. 

According to HaskeU Williams, chairman 
of the Initiative/Resources Committee, "so 
if an office in the Student Association isn t 
your thing, here is another bag, your chance 
to be involved. If you have wanted to, but 
didn't have the funds, here's your answer. 
The money is here, all 'VOU have to do is 
GET INVOLVED. It's yours for helping." 

Chief Keller praises 
Police Reserve Force 

Chief Douglas E. Keller has given the 
liighest praise and professional tribute 
to the members of the Collegedale 
Police Reserve Force. Members of this 
force serve without pay and since they 
were organized by Chief Keller and 
placed on active duty July 1, 1973, these 
Reserve Officers patrol an average of 
500 to 800 hours each month, volunteer- 
mg their time in the Police Service for 
the members of their community. 

Each member of the force have now 
completed approximately 300 hours ol 
training through the CoUegedale Police 
Training School, on general and teclmical 

police subjects. The Detective Division 
is comprised of four police detectives, al' 
volunteers. Some serve our comniiinily | 
by working 30 or more hours a week. 
Each member of the Police Reserve 
takes the same oath as the regular ofricerl 
which states in part, "My fundamenul 
duty is to serve mankind, to safeguard 
ives and property, to protect the iniio- 
jent against deception, the weak agaiiisl | 
oppression or intimidation, and llie 
peaceful against violence or disorder, 
and to respect the constitutional tiglils 
of all mankind to liberty, equality.and

tliievcs to tweak the law. But never the Pies, 
idency' How can law and order hold sway in 
the streets of New York and Chicago when so 
many citizens are dubious about law and older 
at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.? Possibly it's tune 
we got to the bottom of this mess once and 
£oi aD. Surely, a year of Wateigate is too much 
To entertain the idea that Piesident Nixon 
may be culpable is difficult for many Adven- 
tists because most of us who voted, voted for 
Urn But at a time like this oui conservative 
ideology and RepubUcan politics (two philos- 
ophies which sometimes appeal to be bed- 
feUows with the leUgion of many Adventists) 
should give way to the upholding and en- 
forcing of molality in our government. As 
Editw K. H. Wood perceptively pointed out 
in a recent Review and Heiald editorial on 
Watergate: "Christians should be wholly 
objective and cleai-eyed. They should be on 
the side of right and truth and justice no 
matter who may be involved-family, church 
Wends, business associates, or political 
leaders." (1 know of one good Adventist 
here in the area who has refused to read 
this R. 4 H. editorial.) 

I believe we Christians should avoid too 
dose identification with any political 
personality or party which would tend to 
bDnd us to questions of right and uiith and 
jMtice. Inteiestin^y, Jesus, our supreme Uader, 
had no flattering defense for "that fox" Herod. 
And John the Beloved was unafraid to speak of 
gome as the Babylon of his day. 

How do we get rid of Wateigate? How can 
America remove suspicion from the minds of so 
many of iu citizens? How can the law of the 
country be shown to apply equally for all? How 
can Americans show they're against all crime 
CTeiywhere? Possibly the impeachment pro- 
cenSng is the best allemative out of this mess.

E)eai Editors: 

WeU, you did it again-even exceeded your- 
selves. More kudos! Perhaps this is why 1 have 
been picking up hints from a variety of sources 
that 1 owe you a chocolate shake. My first re- 
action to these rumors was one of curiosity: 
how could that deduction possibly have been 
made from my previous letter to you? Upon 
re-reading said lettei, I am constrained to admit 
that my curiosity was transformed into mysti- 
fied puzzlement. 

Here are a few reasons which constitute the 
foundation of my perplexity: 1) the lettei 
doesn't say that the shake is to be given TO 
anyone, 2) nor does it say that anyone-for ex- 
ample, me!-will purchase it, 3) or if he does 
purchase it that lie may not drink it himself, 
4) and finally, 1 can't make out whether (if 
indeed the shake IS to be awarded) it is to en- 
courage you to do a bcttei oi worse job on the 
next issue! In fact, although I hate to concede 
it, the greater part of that letter seems to be 
rathei ambiguous. And you know as well as 1 
that ex nihilo nihil fit. 

However, just to demonstiate to you that 
my heart is not cold and calculating, but warm 
anxious to lespond to the spirit of the law 
rather than the letter-just to show this, I am 
enclosing enough money so that everyone on 
you staff may drink a milkshake. You may 
even choose the flavor you prefer! 

On February 13-15, Dr. Robert 
McCurdy, instructor of Computer 
Science at SMC, attended a computer 
science conference in Detroit, Mich. 

One reason for the conference was 
to meet different people and find out 
I how each one meets certain problems 
in computer science. 

Also, there were 200 papers pre- 
sented at the conference covering cur- 
rent research in computer science. The 
papers were on educational research, 
industry research, theoretical papers on 
frontiers of computer science such as 
automata theory artificial, intelligence, 
linguistics, and formal languages. 

in Detroit 

Some of the papers were more rei- 
■vant to computer science al SMi-, 
iuch as whal should be taught in the 
first computer science courses and 
pcdigodical methods of teaching com 
outer science, which also mcludes ea* 
^he subject to five to ten-year-old cluH 


-James McGee 

P.S. If you are wondering how to spend the 
enclosed fifty cents, this is what you do: buy 
one shake (which liquidates most of the money) 
and use the lemainder to pay the tax and bribe 
the CK management to give you 18 straws-one 
for each of "Our Ciang."

conversation classes and two Bible classes

says Mark. "Even 1 learn a lot from the '

Frank Ricks and Valerie Eiken, serving

None of the Student Missionaries 
(S. M. 's) forget SMC. Frank and Valerie 
requested a copy of this year's Joker so 
they could keep up to date on the students, 
and Jon and Mark mentioned bow, although 
they are having a great time, they will be 
glad to get back to school. 

The S. M. 's in most cases are expected 
to pay round trip transportation, while the 
■local mission provides room and board 
during their stay. After his term, each 
returns to continue his education at the 
college from which he departed. 

To qualify as a student missionary, a 
person must have completed his freshman 
year and have a 2.25 GPA, a good medical 
examination record, and good references 
from both his friends and the college. The 
completion of a first aid course and a 
close personal relationship with Christ 
are highly recommended. 

Anyone interested in being a student 
missionary should take a look at the 
Student Missionary Request Bulletin, 
1973-74 (found at Ihe desks of the Student 
Center, the library, and the dorms) which 
gives a brief description of the openings 
and needs. Application forms and more

Des Cummings to leave SAAC 
to complete Master's degree 

In luaich of this year Des Cummings, 
the college chaplain, will be leaving SMC 
lor Andrews University. He will finish 
Ins work for the Master of Divinity degree 
two quarters and return to this campus 
continue his ministry in September, 

During an interview we asked Eld. 
Cummings how his leaving would affect 
ihe religious life of SMC students. In 
answering he first outlined his concept 
,)f his own role before pointing out that 
he will only be gone for six weeks of 
egular school session this term and will 
be back before college begins in the fall. 
Many students may scarcely notice his 
absence because of the structure of his 
work. He defines his own work as im- 
plementing the aims of the MV Society - 
win, to grow, to relate - through three 
ictivities: (1) Personal confrontation. 
(2) Preaching the Word. (3) Coordination 
of the one-to-one efforts of the faculty 

at large, i.e. deans and teachers. 

Though he lays great stress on his 
personal contact with individual students. 
Bid. Cummings obviously cannot reach 
the entire student body this way. So he 
puts a lot of study and prayer into the 
second area of activity, preaching. 

It is the third area of his work (hat 
Eld. Cummings says explains why he 
won't leave a noticeable hole in the 
religious life here. when he leaves. He 
does not see himself as the sole agent 
for Gospel concern on campus. Rather, 
he sees himself as a part of a team. He 
wants to plan so that he can be sure 
ihat every student will have personal con- 
lact with someone interested in that 
student's relationship with Jesus. 

No new personnel will be employed 
>o cover Eld. Cummings' present position; 
current staff members will share in filling; 
his place.

In this story, which takes place where 
the Russian Empire is on the verge of 
revolution, 1905, Man and his relation- 
ship with his family, his people, and the 
enemies of his people, is brought out. 

Traditions are breaking down, and 
values are confused. The small town, 
Anatevka, inhabited by Russian Jews, 
is striving for pride and dignity. Their 
unique life styles, and feelings, such 
as their special relationship with God 
is reflected in their daily living. 

The thought behind this fascinating 
story is that though it actually takes 
place in a small village in Czarist Russia, 
it really takes place everywhere.

Sensing the limitations inherent in 
having only three professors in the Busi- 
ness Administration Department, it was 
felt that some opportunity was needed to 
interject new thought periodically. 

Outside lecturers could add informa- 
tion not included in the present curriculun 
in fields such as real estate, salesmanship, 
insurance, manufacturing, etc.

The series operates on an annual budget 
around $3,000 according to Jan Rushing, 
professor ot business and co-ordinator 
for the series. The seminars are held in 
Summerour Hall, Room 105, at 8 p.m. 
almost every Thursday night. 

They are open to everyone though 
some would obviously be more interest- 
ing to business majors because of their 
specific nature. 

Any student can earnitwo semester 
hours of credit by attending all the 
lectures and passing a final test on the 
material. All business majors are required 
to take it once, but it may be repeated 
for more credit as many times as desired.

ventist, are sometimes local, sometimes 
brought in from anywhere in the U.S..
