thirty five hundred dollars or more a year for

and essays, studying countless evenings, and

To those o( you who are returning to college, 
perhaps you have already decided what college 
has to offer you thai you can't obtain '"" ■"'"■" 
and are content with thai. But back t 
guesiion, what made you come here n 

Traditionally, men came lo college lo get 
education for a job; women came lo get the me 
I'm sure you're all acquainted with the joke 
about "S.M.C." meaning "Southern Matrimonial 
Center", or heard ol the "hoards" of women 
coming to get iheir "M.R.S." degree. I reiect 
this generalization. We're more complicated 
ihan thai. 

Maybe your parents have strongly advised 
ihai college is "where it is at", and if you 
wanted parental approval and/or support, you'd 
qo "where it is at"! 

Many of you knew when you vi/alked through 
these doors for the first time w/hat you wanted . 
out ot life, and that college was the only place 
to get it. Perhaps some of you hope to gain 
social elevation or a higher economic status, 
and have been told that the only way to do ' 
to qet a college degree. "That's where the 
money is, boy! You'd be a fool not to qo into 
anything else!" It this is your major motivation, 
join the crowd who are "rich and increased with 
goods and have need of nothing," for you have 
a good chance of getting jusi that if you keep « 
ai it. 

Although figures suggest that well over half 
of entering freshmen have a predetermined-^ — 
major, the "undecided" category outnum- 
bers all majors except nursing. This group 
represents to me the largest single reason a 
young person comes to college. 

It's simple, most of us come here because 
we haven't anything belter lo do. We're sure 
we want to be happy and succeed in I ife, so we 
come to a place that we feel offers happiness 
and success in exchange for a few years' worth 
ol money and time. Then we spend those years 
in frustration trying lo determine under what 
label we should consider ourselves successful. 

I sincerely hope that every student is satis- 
lied with what he gets here al S.M.C, because 
whatever ii is that you want, whether it is pres- 
tige, money, a life partner, a goal in life, a |ob, 
or lusl an enjoyable social lime, Southern Mis- 
sionary College has ii for yuu. 

I'm not qomg lo say what it is that should be 
your motivaiion. You decide where your prior- 
ities in lite are. Just don'i fall inlo the ratrace 
ol one young person I know, who after several 
years ol searching and trying to meet his prior- 
ities, said in disgust, "I find this all foolishnes; 
and chasing after the wind!"

Welcome lo Southern Missionary 
College. SMC might be new to you. 
You may well be experiencing the 
reality of living with two (or more) 
roomniales. On the other hand, you 
may be consciously trying to fade 
out of the picture gracefully, know- 
ing you're going to be graduating 
this coming May. You might be sus- 
pended somewhere in between the 
wide-eyed freshman and the seasoned 

eran, but I'm convinced of this 

; thing-God brought you, me, all 
of ui here together for a purpose

I'm talking about a deeper pur- 
lose than merely running between 
classes, typing term papers, and 
punching ihe clock. You could

almost anywhere. I'm concerned 
with the purpose of fellowship and 
true corporate Christian liying. 

There's something to be said for a 
group of humans who come and 
live together, motivated by reasons 
other than purely self-interest; for 
a community of people who think 
and act and move in concert, seek- 
ing to become a blessing to others 
and to show them what character

These ideas are embodied in the 
theme for the Student Association

cept for disaster relief. 

Sludenl Ken West challenged the com- 
mission by indicating that he is a citizen 
of another state. Mayor Fuller answered, 
"You are now a citizen of two places." 
According to the census bureau. College- 
dale dormitory students are citizens of 
Collegedale, Tennessee. 

The mayor continued his defense by 
describing the complications involved in 
the new road construction. Rerouting 
the stream to the north side of the rail- 
road tracks and relocating an eight-inch 
diameter gas-main that is in the area of 
the proposed road site are necessary be- 
fore the road can be laid. 

Telephone and utilities companies will 
begin the first phase of the project soon 
to avoid the oncoming winter months. 
And by next spring students and resi- 
dents of Collegedale will have a safer 
road to travel to and from the college. 

Mike Bradley, SMC student, asked the 
city commission if all other possible 
sources of aid have been investigated. 
Mr. Fuller mentioned Ihe various depart- 
ments within Tennessee that help out in 
these projects, including possibilities 
that could come from the state capital. 
But in iiis visit to Nashville, only minor 

changes were made on the engineering 

plans. However, he emphasized that 

college students of Nashville whose 

homes are located outside the city or 

state are required by law to pay a fifteen 

dollar vehicle registralion fee. 

In answer to the possibility of ex- 
tending the lime limit of this tax, Mr. 
Fuller said. "When the funds aren't 
needed, it's my aim lo do away with 
it." But if flood conditions arise, that 
could give way to extending the tax be- 
yond the necessary two-year period. 

A protest was made which suggested 
that the students were illegally taxed. 
The description in higher law courts 
would call it "taxation without repre- 

The commission took the offensive 
position by declaring that students in 
Collegedale who arc employed while 
having out-of-state license plates could 
be subjected to the existing law in 
Tennessee that says, "A vehicle operator 
must purchase Tennessee plates if he 
lives and works in that state for thirty 
days or more." Up to this time, officials 
in Collegedale have not deemed it neces- 
sary to enforce that law. With that in 
mind, the city council settled the case. 

Religion Retreat Begins Friday 

Elder Charles D. Brooks will be 
the featured speaker at this semester's

Foundation Gives Grant 

President Frank Knittel hai rcce 
word from the Kresge Foundation 
Troy, Michigan, that Southern Mi 
sionary College has been awarded 
grant of 550,000 

ipleiion of the new Nursing Educa- 
tion building on campus. 

The grant proposal was presented 
by SMC's Director of Development, 
Dwighl S. Wallack, al the foundation's 

When interviewed, Mr. Wallack s 
staled that the Kresge Foundation is 
the "fifth largest in the United States 
with assets of three-quarters of a 
billion dollars." 

Kresge's interests lie primarily in 

education, and health. The founda- 
tion has recently contributed to such 
diverse organizations as the National 
Braille Institute and Ducks Unlimited, 
as well as toward the construction of 
a library at Andrews University and 
the new library on the La Sierra cam- 
pus of Loma Linda University, 

In October. Mr. Wallack will fulfill 
the obligations stipulated by the 
Kresge Foundation when he submits 
final figures on the nursing building. 
He will show the actual costs and 
finishing statistics. Then the cash 
grant will be supplied by the founda-

andthe stJdents of SMC do use the road; but 
still I can't condone the wav the city council 
passed a registration fee which has no firm 
legal basis. 

According to Tennessee code 6-742 nan- 
residents can not be charged a fee or tax for 
the privilege of using the roads. 

Contrary to statements made at the last 
council meeting, the city of Collegedale is 
not doing the students a favor by not forcing 
them to buy Tennessee license plates. Some-

city of Collegedale. "If you're required to 
have a sticker, you can register and vote. " 

This issue isn't settled, and I imagine it 
won't be for some time. Let's not have a

Dear Editor, 

Those students having the mis 
fortune of not being on campus 
this past weekend really missed 

This is my third year here, 
and I believe that our MV week- 
end this year was the best ever. 
Dr. Knittel expressed in chapel 
on Thursday that he believed 
we had obtained the "ultimate" 
in speakers in the person of Dr. 
Heppenstal. I'm certain that 
the "ultimate" in programs was 
the Saturday night presentation 
of "We Have This Hope." 

It was a real thrill for me, as 
part of the audience, to become 
involved with the participants 
in sharing the joys, hopes, and 
disappointments of our MillerJte 
and Adventist ancestors. It cer- 
tainly brought to life those 
things I had read about and 
studied in my Religion class - 
one which most of you already 

become famil- 
iar with - "Foundations of the 
Advent Movement." 

I was delighted to hear of 
the plan to share the program 
with some of our other churchK| 
in the Southern Union, My 
only regret is that those outside | 
of the Union may never have 
the joy of experiencing it. 

We have some fine, innovativrl 
MV leaders this year, whom I 
believe really have the Holy 
Spirit. If this past Saturday 
night was any indication of 
what's ahead, I hope everyone I 
will make a special effort not 
to miss any of the MV program! 
this year. 

With the "ultimate" in 
weekends already past, my onlyl 
question is, What are we 
to do for next year? 

With best wishes to the MV |

Tn. TuHion Grant 
Still Not Dead 

President Frank Knittel attended a 
special session of the Tennessee Council 
of Private Colleges on September 8, in 
Nashville, to discuss ways of dealing 
with the problem of the Tennessee 
Tuition Grant not being funded for 
the 1975-76 school year. 

The TCPC. an organization of re- 
presentatives of all accredited private 
junior colleges, senior colleges and 
universities, met to show their ob- 
jection to Governor Blanton's op- 
position of the bill to refund the 
Tennessee Tuition Grant for this 
school year. 

Blanton did not realize the wide 
disapproval from both Democrats and 
Republicans on his decision, therefore 
he may reverse his decision, which may 
still bring financial assistance to some 
SMC students second semester.

August 30 a( the B'nai Zion Con- 
gregation in Chattanooga six weavings 
designed and made by Miss Ellen 
Zollinger of the SMC Aft Department 
were presented. 

Miss Zollingei was commissioned 
last year by the decorating commillee 
of the new Jewish Synagogue fo weave 
a series of wall hangings depicting the 

The thematic thrust Miss Zollinger 
chose was to show through these 
weavings that the character of God 
was the same 4,000 years ago as it 
is today, that the miraculous dis- 
play of power given to the Israel- 
ites has not diminished, and that 
God has always been and will always 
be actively involved with His people. 

Each of the sbc wall hangings is 
a pictorial account of a Biblical pas- 
sage. The first one was taken from 
Exodus 14:26 and shows the parting 
of Ihe Dead Sea. The second one, 
laken from Exodus 48:30, repre- 
sents the pillar of fire and covering 
cloud. In the third wall hanging 
Miss Zollinger visually manifested 
God's power in sending manna lo 
feed the people. This story is re- 
corded in Deuteronomy 8:14.16. 

God not only guided the Israel- 
ites with the cloud and pillar of 
fire but also gave them Iht- ten 
commandment"^ to guide their 
life styles. Tms is what the 
fourlh wall hanging, which was 
laken Irom Exodus 19:2, shows. 

The iiiih hanging portrays the 
glory oi God filling ihe labernacle 
after it's completion, li was laken 
trom Exodus 40:34. 

The sixth and last of the set 
represents the promised land a 
land of milk and honey and ful- 
filled dreams. Leviticus 25 -10 is 
Ihe text it was based on. 

All of the wall hangings are 4'/; 

"It Is Crowded Here" 

Johanna Birgisdol 

Iceland, dii 
weeks ago 
family "ii 

just three 
vrote home to lell her 
iwded here." 
ca her Seandi 
fi'ilier, Leif Ericson, discovered back in 
1000 A.D, 

Johanna, a 17-ycar-old, fair-skinned, 
blonde freshman comes from the capital 
city Reyjavek, which doesn't allow dogs 
bul has no objections lo fish, being one 
of the two largest fishing ports in Iceland. 
To celebrale each new summer season, the 
mayor of Reyjavek catches Ihe first salmon 
from Ihe Eliida River whose rushing waters 
iravel right through the center of llie city 
of 115,000 in population. 

Though Reyjavek lies on a "lazy" sea- 
shore, north winds and icebergs make it 
difficult for one to swim even in summer, 
but water piped in from natural under- 
ground hot springs allows year-round swim- 
ming in pools of comfortable temperatures. 
This same piping provides central heating 
for the houses of the city and gives Rey- 
javek the nickname, "Smokeless Citj'" 

Johanna smiles as she recalls making 
first acquaintances here who have asked. 
"Aren't you hot? It is cold where you 
come from, isn't it?" Johanna says it is 
more humid here and windy there, but 
the climate is not all that different. 

When asked what she found most 
fascinating about America, Johanna 
replied, "I like how the sun shines so 
briglitly. '■ 

Because of the strong Religion De- 
partment, SMC was recommended to 
Johanna by a friend from Newbold, our 
sister college in England. Johanna hopes 
to return to Iceland after graduating and 
leach al Ihe academy she graduated from. 

Birgisdotlir means she is Birgir's (father, 
first name) daugliter. Her brother's Ian | 
name, therefore, would be Bireisc 



same last name, but her children will 
be named after her husband's first nam; 
with "dottir" or "son" attached. 

Iceland's national holiday is June 17, I 
Tills is graduation day for ihose who 
will attend university in the fall. Thest 
graduates may be spotted m any crowd, | 
yes. even at the soccer arena for tliey 
all wear white hats on this particular 

When asked what the major differ- 
ence between our two cultures was, 
Johanna's blue eyes danced in sliy 
merriment, "You American; 
too polite!" To which her 
briskly replied, "You're in Ihe South!" |

Southern Accent Candidate 

jSOO^ li.ZV9Zkl 

This year the Soulhern Accent will 
be printing a number of (we hope) 
highly readable book reviews which will 
be of interest to a significant majority 
of the students here at SMC. The pur- 
pose of these reviews will be not only 
10 entertain but to be of service lo 
you, and we will be considering books 
of outstanding interest or usefulness, 
whether SDA or non-SDA, religious. 
secular, or reference. Some of the up- 
coming books and topics now in plan- 
ning are 77)c Secret Life of Plan Is; 
books on Noali's ark; the best refer- 
ence Bibles; God Invenied Sex: Jona- 
than Livingston Seagull; the SDA 
magazines; and a host of other tant- 
alizing goodies. The first of these 
reviews appears in this issue. 

We realize how much you students 
will long to acquire these books after 
reading about them, and so to pre- 
vent riots we have made arrangements 
with the two book stores in the mail 
to have each book on sale at the lime 
the review is printed. Bibles and SDA 
books will be sold at the Book & Bible 
House, and all others at the Campus 
Shop. These may be put on your 
statement. Furthermore, if the book 
reviewed is in the library, it will usually 
be put on three-day reserve for one 
month as a service to the students 
[i.e., to keep the eager beavers from 
grabbing it the first day and keeping 
it for a month). You may ask for it 


S300 scholarships for 
Forest Lake Academy, Mainland, Flori- 
da. The money will be given according 
lo financial need, and is lo be used at 
Southern Missionary College, Collegedale, 
Tennessee, in one of the college's voca- 
tional curricula. 

SHC Students Win 
Sets Of China 

Two SMC students have gained 
nation-wide recognition for their 
accomplishments in the Home 
Economics field. 

Miss Cynthia His is the first- 
prize winner of the 1975 Oxford 
Coordination Contest. The con- 
test is based on the application 
of art principles in the coordin- 
ation of china, crystal, and flat- 
ware design. Eight complete 
place settings of Oxford Bone 
China and Lenox Crystal are her 
prize. She also placed fifth in 
the Twenty-first Annual Lenox 
Table Setting Contest. 

Miss Diane Parsons is the Na- 
tional First Plateau Prize winner 
in the Fostoria Table Setting 
Contest sponsored by the editorial 
staff of "Bride's" Magazine. Her 
prize is a five-piece place setting

.... Our specific purpose now is to 
investigate the inspired answer .. . . 
recorded in the Old Testament. 
LaRondelle then takes us on a gi^oed 
tour through the entire Bible, elucidatini 
the texts having a bearing on this topic. 
LaRondelle's Biblically -derived def- 
inition of perfection is similar to 
Heppenstall's. Perfection in the Gos- 
pels is "the revival of the principles 
of perfect love as proclaimed by Moses 
and t 

sent gift £ 

only at the ultimate establishment 
of the kingdom of glory." (page 121), 
LaRondelle's conclusion: perfection 
is "living daily out of God's forgiving 
and keeping grace .... The only 
absolutely perlect, that is, inherently 
sinless, character has been revealed 

:aliy in the perfection of Christ. 
Man has no perfection in himself." 
(page 136). 

Like Douglass. Maxwell approaches 
perfection from the standpoint of 
preparation for the second coming. 
His main point is that there is a dif-

were "perfect." Maxwell then quotes

when the intercession or t.nriii >i>aii

lack? They lacked a knowledge of 
the doctrines of the Sabbath and the 
sanctuary, doctrines vitally necessary 
for the completion of God's plan on 
^^'LikrDouglass!'Maxwel! goes to great 
lengths to carefully define his terms, 
since the term "sinless perfection 
has been abused by fanatics to mean 
a state beyond the reach of sin, some- 
thing Maxwell repudiates. He also 
disavows the possibility of absolute 
perfection beyond which there can 
be no progress. 

Since the words do not appear in 
the Bible, Maxwell takes issue with 

looking the fact 

pears in one of k..- ►

later. True, he says, mere is d iensc 

in which we are saved solely by grace, 

"through the grace of God and their

of the church fathers and Christian 
theologians in this debate ("Luther 
knew nothing of the third angel's 
message."). He devotes an entire 
section to defining sin and another 
to answering the objections of his 
opponents, which the other three 
writers tend to ignore, making his 
paper the longest and most thorough 

e passages he quotes

there is no way of getting into the Student

because at the beginning of the year it was

well because other student centers operate 
on this policy. 

Seriously now, il's a lot easier to poke

of the many museums that contributed

In his opening remarks, l^obasco 
commented on the significance of 
having the Hunter Museum in Chatta- 
nooga: "It's one of the largest mu- 
seums for a community tliis size and 
well could be the largest in the country 
on a population basis." 

"The real reason for its success 
is the merit of volunteer work and the 
type of people that have taken an in- 
terest in the arts here." 

Congresswoman Lioyd said, "It's 
great day for Chattanooga. This 
luseum is here for the future, for 
our chil dren and grandchildren to 
have and appreciate."

Initial Stage Comprises 

Office Building And Nursing Home 

A large-scale lieallh-care development is 
planned for the southwest corner of Rob- 
inson Corners. Mr. O.D. McKee has don- 
ated the land to Ihe Southern Union, and 
the Southern Advenlist Health and Hos- 
pital System, Inc. has begun the initial 
stages of promotion and development, 

According to Mr. Charles Fleming, 
director of promotion on the local level, 
long range plans include a nursing home 
of 120 beds, professional offices to accomo- 
date physicians, dentists, optometrists, and 
a pharmacy; a retirement complex, apart- 
ments and condominiums, a church, park, 
lake, and a hospital. 

In the first stage the nursing home and 
office building will be built. Fleming says 
that the surveying is being done now and 
that if everything goes as scheduled, hope- 
fully construction will begin on the medi- 
cal clinic before the end of the year and

gratulate these students and alumni 
for their outstanding perserverence 
and scholastic achievement. 


The funds for site preparation and roads 
are coming from Ihc sale of land to Develop- 
ment Enterprises of Cleveland, Tennessee, 
which is going to build Ihc nursing home. 
The money for the medical complex will 
come from financing. 

The nursing home will provide jobs in 
the near future for SMC students, and 
althougli there are lots of barriers to 
overcome before a hospital can be built, 
Fleming says that it would not only pro- 
vide employment but also be a very strong 
asset to the nursing program here al SMC. 

The Southern Advenlist Health and 
Hospital System, Inc. presently has ulti- 
mate control of the 11 hospitals presently 
operated by the Southern Union.

Train Hits Volkswagen 

At 7:55 a.m. Friday morning, a red 1972 
Volkswagen was hit by a train at the College- 
dale railroad crossing on the Apison Pike 

Dr. Aussner, an eyewitness observer of 
the accident, recounts what happened: 
"There were two cars ahead of me. I 
heard the train coming from Apison, and 
then the front car ran across the tracks. 
The lady in the V\V also preceded to cross. 

1 believe the train was at the bridge when 
she started. The train blew its whistle, 
but she kept on going. I looked underneath 
the train cars to see if she had made it or 
not. and saw the VW on the other side." 
The car was thrown approximately 35 
yards. The driver, a 27-ye3r-old Oollewah 
lady, and her daughter were shaken up but 
not seriously injured.

security of an Adventis! campus. 

Now I'm going to go one step further and 
say ihat ihe strongest convictions are just clay in the 
the devil's hand. Sin is much more than just break- 
ing a rule It's the sign of a deeper problem. f^/Iaybe 
you won't agree with me, but I say sin is a coping 
mechanism. Have you ever noticed that it's when 
you're discouraged that you feel like tossing your 
morals out the window and having a good time. 

The quotation, "Every man has his price." isn't 
too far from The truth. Your needs determine your 
behavior, and strong beliefs will break if enough 
pressure is applied. 

Peter stated emphatically that he would never 
desert Christ, and right after that, under pressure 
of lear, he swore he never knew Him. 

Some people have stronger backbones than 
others and look disdainfully at their weak friends. 
It's easy for them to shake their heads in sancti- 
monious piety and say, "Did you hear about..." 
They seem to forget that under the same circum- 
stances they'd probably do the same thing. 

"Now hold on there," you say, "are you trying 
to say there is no such thing as right or wrong?" 

This isn't what I'm trying to say at all. I'm just 
propounding that the answer to sin and its terrible 
consequences is not through sharpening your will 
power through mental gymnastics. There is hope 
for the sinner. God offers you a relationship with 
Him that will fulfill your needs and give you the 
strength to follow the lifestyle he's outlined. 

This IS where the crux of the problem lies. So 
olten we either let the situation shape our morals 
or try to shape them ourselves with rigid obser- 
vance of a hsl of do's and don'ts rather than 
working on forming this relationship. 

Establishing a trusting relationship vi-ith God 
isn't easy, you have to work at it. fvlaybe it will 
even mean gelling up earlier lo study and pray. 

What you do and what you think is your business, 
but as far as I'm concerned. I've decided that the 
best way lo find happiness is lo trust God v 
hang-ups knowing that this is the 
behavior problems will be taken c

Schlelsner Announces 
Limited TV Use 

On September 22 in Talge worship, 
Dean Schlcisner announced that "The 
. TV will be back in service, but only for 
a limited number of special programs." 

Among that "limited number" are 
Jacques Cousleau specials, the Super- 
bowl, World Scries, several bicentennial 
programs, Olympics, and the election 
year primaries and conventions. 

Schleisiier noted that 'This list we 
have drawn up is the final word, and 
to put it bluntly, we (the deans) don't 
want to be bugged about it." 

He said several discussions with Dr. 
Knittel and others strengthened the 
the deans have had for a 

"We feel there is not that nmch worth 
watching anyway, and we've tried to pick 
the best from the worst. We hope we 
have included something for everyone in

SIcatIng Party Held

and also avoid running into each other. 
Some of the couples skating together 
were an example of fluid motion and 
the others-well, they enjoyed the learn- 
ing process. 

Besides free skating, single and charioi 
races were organized, teams were divided 
according to class standing and separate 
races were held for the girls and guys. 

The party was scheduled from 7:30 
to 9:30 p.m., but, according to Men's 
Club president, Tommy Davidson, "The 
turnout was so large and we were having 
so much fun that we kept on' rolling 
until 10:00 o'clock." 

After the party a concensus was taken 
as to whether everyone enjoyed them- 
selves and would like somctliing similar 
in the future. Those with sore feet and 
bottoms had to think a minute before 
answering, but in the end there was 
unanimous approval.

What You Always W 

Most Americans, il seems, have a bad 
memory. Perhaps il is our system of 
educaUon; perhaps it is the easy avaiJa- 
bility of print and pen and paper; perhaps 
it even has something to do with television. 
The memory capacity of ilHterates and 
Orientals often surpasses thai of Western 
I. In one Mohammedan university 
of the entrance requirements is that 
,„^ entire Koran, a document slightly 
smaller than the New Testament, must 
be memorized (the faculty here should 
understand that we are not recommend- 
ing (his). . 

Short of becomming illilerale, which 
may be somewhat impracticd, or becom- 
ming Oriental, which seems unnecessarily 
difficult, arc there any remedies for a 
treacherous memory? Scientists working 
on the problem have made some interest- 
ing discoveries such as the fact that 
specific memories are stored in specific 
molecules in the brain. Two scientists 
trained rats to shun the dark by giving 
Ihem a choice of running into a well- 
liglilcd box or a dark one in which they 
were shocked. They then extracted 
from their brains the chemical they 
suspected was responsible for storing 
this memory of fear of the dark and 
injected it into untrained rats. These 
rats then also avoided llie dark. Further- 
more, the same chemical also produced 
fear of darkness in other animals. Some- 
day you may get calculus by injection! 

Don'l wait around for it thougli. 
Other drugs aimed at sharpening the 
memory are now in the test tubes, but 
for the squeamish here are two books 
that wiL do the same thing with no side 

The New York Knicks may have lost 
a basketball star but the world gained a 
mnemonist when Jerry Lucas teamed up 
with his mentor, Harry Lorayne, to write 
The Memory Book (Stein and Day, 1 974, 
i7.9S.paperback-Sl.95), seven months on 
the bestseller list. Lorayne is an old pro, 
having written a number of books on 
improving the mind. Lucas became a 
disciple of Lorayne's after reading one 
of his books. He put its principles to 
work in liis studies and graduated Phi 
Beta Kappa from Oliio State University, 
■'having put in something like one fourth 
the study time that most students used." 
Lucas went on to appear on television 
and perfect a few techniques of his own, 
ind finally one day the two authors met 
for the first time and gabbed on for about 
eighteen hours, some of which gabbing 
they recorded and inserted in the book. 
It is these personal reminiscences which 
make tlris book so readable. Atone 
point Lorayne claims to have memorized 
around twenty million names in his career- 
enougli to start his own country, he quips. 
Not that we want to quibble, but that 
comes lo around 1 ,000 a day for each 
day of his life. Of course, perhaps he I"" 
always lived in New York where there 
lots and lots of people " 

BOOK mn^'^ 

,„,ed T. Know But Couldn't Remember 

The secret of Lucas- and What's-his- 
name's marvelous memory is tlieir mne- 
monc^lsy^X^m of linking different words 

"gelher by ridiculous associations invo- 
ing bizarre mental pictures. For exanipie, 
suppose you wish to remember a list of 
things you need to buy: envelopes a 
trash can, shoelaces, frying pan, and so 
on First picture a huge envelope act- 
ing as a trash can. Got il? Now see 
thousands and thousands of shoelaces 
falling into it. Next picture a large fry- 
ing pan in which shoelaces are being 

It'sounds crazy, yes, but it works-in 
fact, that's why it works. The more 
ridiculous the mental image, the longer 
it is retained. 

This basic metliod has many different 
applications, and tlie authors include 
;hapters on remembering speeches or 
sermons, foreign languages, names and 
faces, and numbers, not to mention 
appointments, the stock market, and where 
where you laid your keys. Names, for 
example, are remembered by altering^^ 
Ihem slightly if necessary ("Thatcher" 
becomes "That chali") and associating 
them to some outstanding feature of the 
person's face, which is mentally exagger- 

If Jerry Lucas memorized the first few 
hundred pages of the Manliatten telephone 
book, certainly a chemistry student could 
memorize the elements with their weights 
and symbols using this system. Greek 
students will be overjoyed at the new 

ities open to them after reading 
<:hapter seven. If Lucius Scipio was able 
to remember the names and faces of all 
the citizens of ancient Rome with a 
mnemonic system, perhaps you could do 
the same for all the residents of your 
wing in the dorm. Some enterprising 
students might even enjoy committing 
the Joker to memory. 

According to the authors, once the fact 
has been learned by association the associa- 
tion itself soon fades, leaving behind a 
natural memory. This has been my exper- 
ience as I tried out the system in learning 
Greek vocabulary. One criticism 1 have is 
that it does require practice to become 
adept at formulating the proper links on 
the spur of the moment. This may not 
come as easily to some people as it 
evidently does to the authors, althou^ 
the authors insist that their natural memory 
is no better than average. 

If mnemonics is beneatli your dignity, 
you might prefer Techniques for Efficient 
Remembering, by Donald and Elearnor 
Laird (McGraw-Hill, 1960, paperback, 
S2.4S), which covers just about everything 
:lse about memory other than mnemonics. 
This book will never make the best-seller 
hst, but il is a useful, non-technical appli- 
cation of scientific findings to the student's 
study methods. Laird reviews the results 
of many different experiments conducted 
by researchers and applies these results to 
formulate general principles and specific 

techniques of increasing recaU of learned 

Laird pokes a little fun at mnemomsls 
and their schemes, labelling them as "arti- 
fical" remembering. He opts for more 
natural means of learning such as self- 
recitation and spaced practice. The book 
includes an index and a helpful bibliography. 
For the student who wants lo knowa// the 
techniques, both books are necessary. 

Oh"incidently, you miglit be interested 
in knowing Ellen G. Wlutc's formula for 
improving the memory: "nothing else will 
so help to give (students] a retentive mem- 
ory as the study of the scriptures." (Coun- 
sels to Teachers, p. 483).

Dear Editor, 

II was a quiet, lazy Friday evening

of n en lust by chance niet together. , 
The conversation dwelt upon many lungs 
"'" '""Pn^ew'semeslcr "but in'rilc ^midst 
o? 'a'lTflie uiking, the subject of Ijterature 
ouireach came up. In the discussion . 
(hat followed, the idea evolved of having 
an organization, at first involving the 
efforts of the five men, but perhaps even- 
tually involving a great many more people 
thai would involve themselves in altainng 
literature and distributing it freely to all 
who want and need il. thus helping 
spread the cause of God carried on t)y 
our church. They held a forma! meeting 
a few days later, elected officers, and 
drafted the name, "The Leaves Of Autumn. 

"The message of tmth is to go to all 
nations, tongues, and people; its publi- 
cations, printed in many different lan- 
guages, are to be scattered abroad like 
the leaves of autumn." 4T 79

long trips, we quite often manage to 
smuggle in another stray and he lets 
them stay most of the time. All I 
can say is that I am glad you didn't

Does he watch much television? He 

probably averages one hour every six

He is an avid reader, tliougli. 

What are his hobbies? Besides me, 
he likes to work on the house. At 
least that's what he does. In Colorado, 
I would have said snow-skiing. He 
really enjoyed that. 

Does he have any annoying habits? 
He certainly does. He snores {I can't 
stand the quiet when he's gone) and 
he eats loo fast. I can't get the food 
arranged on my plate before he is gone.

Student Teachers Implemented 

As the new quarter for the Sabbath 
School lesson starts, so starts a new 
kind of Sabbath School at SMC. The 
students will be the teachers this time 
around. According to Dr. Melvin Camp- 
bell, Sabbath School sponsor, the idea 
was very well received and enough 
students volunteered to teach to im- 
plement this plan. Instruction for the 
new teachers is being planned. There 
is the possibility that Elder C. D. Brooks 
and Dr. Wilma McClarty will be the 
speakers for the training sessions. 

The first Sabbath School, held on 
October 4, featured Elder Frank Hol- 
brook for the lesson study. Eider Hol-

On October 25 llie Woodruff Family, 
a musical group featuring stringed in-

for future Sabbath School programs is 
Mrs. Thelnia Kotecki presenting on 
January 22, "A New Dimension in 
Witnessing," and on February 7, Bob 
Zollinger will give a program on "Self

cialion. This action came, Monday evening, 
October 6. following a presentation of the 
final Hnancial reporl for ihe 74-75 fiscal 
year, and the current Finance Committee's 
presentation of a proposed budget, both 
of which were brought lo the Senate 
floor by S.A.S.M.C. Treasurer, Larry Lee. 

The proposed budget, ratified by the 
Senate covered all projected expendit- 
ures by Ihe Student Association during 
the current fiscal year. Just under 15% 
of the lotal budget was appropriated for 
administrative expenses, with the remain- 
ing 85% allotted for the actual product- 
ion of S.A.S.M.C. programs, activities, 
projects and publications. The budget 
included an assignment of S7,500 
lor a proposed picnic shelter to be built 
in the Student Park--a project that has 
drawn favorable discussion for several 
years and which was recently approved by 
by the college's Administrative Council. 

On the heels of the budget ratifica- 
tion motion and approval, came two ad- 
ditional motions intended to give direc- 
tion lo the specific appropriation of 
S7,500 for an S.A, Picnic Shelter 

Whereas the total cost of constru' 
might well exceed the allotment of 
S7,500 , possibly extending as high a 

S 10,000, the Senate unanimously recom- 
mended to the college Administrative 
Council that they appropriate addilional 
funds for the project's completion. 

The response from ihe Adminislralive 
Council was positive, providing that if 
the S.A. would appropriate an addilional 
51,000 to the projecl, making a lolal of 
S8,500 available in S.A. funds, that Ihe 
college would assume ihe financial res- 
ponsibility for any expenses above Ihe 
S8,500 mark. 


Along with the motion for requesting 
additional funds from the college admini- 
stration, the senators voted unanimously 
in favor of beginning the project immedi- 
ately. Their appointment of Elder K.R. 
Davis as general coordinator of the con- 
struction project seemed a natural choice, 
considering his past involvement in similar 
projects as well as the thorough work he'd 
done in already securing the plans, bids, and 
information leading up lo Ihe Senate's 
decision to make the Student Park Shelter 
an official S.A. project. 

Al this point it is important that two 
facts be recognized. First, this year's 
S.A. budget is exceptionally large due to 
over SIO.OOO in surplus funds. It is not 
suggested that this figure represents an 
average for future S.A. budgets. 

Second, a poriion of these surplus

Altliougli this isn't a complete solution, I do tliink 
it is the RAs' responsibility not only to take room clieck 
and keep track of everyone but also to do everything 
in their power to keep things down to a dull roar. Tliis 
is one area where 1 believe tliey could improve. So, if 
you arc bothered don't just mumble under your breath 
how inconaderate your neighbors are-let them know 
you'd appreciate some peace and quiet. Ihen if they're 
decent members of tlie human race and would appreci- 
ate the same conaderation when you're bodiering them, 
they'll tone tiling down. 

A domi is a dbnn, not a convent, and as long as 
tliere ore several hundred young people filled wjUi vim 
vigor and vitality living in tlie same building, there will 
be times wiien it seems like it would be easier to sleep 
or sh-idy in tlie main lobby of a busy airport than in 
your room But even at tliis if everyone would remember 
to follow the golden rule and use common courtesy 
tlierc would be lots of healthier and happier students.

have a terrible typist, so far). Please, if you 
submit sonictliing, give us your name and

evangelism, and the Iremendous soul- 
winning polential Iliat ihe Sabbath School 
possesses. Through this promotional 
Sabbaih School program, il was our endeav- 
or to turn our vast "polential energy" inio

With God's directing we have done just 

To this dale we are conducting ten Neigh- 
borhood Bible Clubs and two Story Hours. 

Approximately 100 of you arc involved 
m our new program, and have accepted 
ihe challenge lo branch oul for Jesus! And 
imly ihis is a challenge. 

To break down prejudice in many neigh- 
borhoods is not an easy task. Nor is oper-

On November 1, Sabbaih School's Special 
r-eature will present a progress report of our 
Branch Sabbath School organization.

Everyone Wins 
In Talent Program 

The SA Talent Program will be held 
November 8 al 8:00 p.m. in the Physical 
Education Centex. 

Featured talent will include comical 
skits, dramalical readings, and musical 
numbers both vocal and instrumental. 

The program has been planned with the 
idea of being entertaining. The participants 
will nol be in competition with each other 
so no individual prizes will be awarded. 
However, the entire cast will be taken to an 
undisclosed restaurant in Chattanooga fol- 
lowing the program. 

SA Social Director, Verbelee Nielsen, 
commented that student interest has been 
great and some talented students will be 
performing. She feels Ihe program will 
conlain enough variety so thai everyone's 
should be included. 

Sauna Will 
Be Fixed 

The sauna in the basement of Talge Hall 
is presently inoperable, but according to 
Dean Schlisner, the Engineering DepartmenI 
will have il fexed in a few days. 

In order lo understand the cause of Ihe 
breakdown a few basic principles on how 
the sauna works need to be explained. Il 
is the dry heat type, and the heat is generated 
by electrical wires which run throughout the 
boxed-shaped, heat generator. These wires 
heat up Ihe rocks which lie in a pan-case 
structure on lop of Ihe generator. These 
rocks in turn heal the air. 

In the past, some have thrown water on 
the sauna to make steam. This does work. 
Sleam and more heal are generated but in 
the process, some of ihe water has not evap- 
orated before it reached Hie wiresjusi inside 
the generator. The result is thai the hot 
wires burned oul and cracked. This is the 
cause of the current break-down. 

According to Dean Evans, "After the 
sauna is repaired, village students who be- 
long lo the Talge Hall Health Club will be 
i use Ihe sauna along with ihc olhcr

Attention all Religion and Theology 
majors and minors- November 4 ai 7:45 
p.m. following Joi[il Worship in Ihc 
Church, the Student Ministerial Association 
will mecl with Dr. J, Crawford of Loma 
Linda University, lo discuss different as- 
pects of Modern Medical Ministry. 

Mayor Fred Fuller, Commissioners Wayne 
VandeVcre, Walter HerreU, and William Mc- 
Ghinnis presented the History Club program 
in tlie Banquet Room of the cafeteria on 
Wednesday evening, October 15. at 5:45 p.m. 
They said that Uie population of Collcgedale 
is now approximately 3500. Sources of in- 
come for the city are the sales tax, gasoline 
tax, property tax, and beer tax. The city 
operates on a budget of about 5200,000 
per year. I U biggest expense is roads, and 
S700,000 has been spent on roads since 
the city was incorporated. 
The lotal indebledness of the city is be- 
veen S760,000 and $780,000. This con- 
sts of bonds to be paid. Continuing costs 
of the city are in the retirement of the debt, 
lice, the roads, garbage collection and 
1 operating expenses of maintaining the 

The City Manager, who is Mr. Lee Holland, 
receives a salary of 512,000 per year while 
the secretary lo the City Manager who is also 
the City Recorder. Mrs. Gladys Mather, re- 
ceives about S7000. 

Southern Missionary College is titled to 
the Southern Union. As a non-pront ed- 
ucational inslilution il is not taxable. How- 
ever, SMC pays to Ihe City of Collegedale 
an amount equivalent to die property tax 
il would be charged if it were taxable. Thus, 
it cooperates with the city financially and 
in many other ways as well. An example is 
the light near the Gymnasium installed by 
the city at the request of the college. The 
sidewalk from the Academy to the Gym- 
nasium was another cooperative project. 
Since SMC is the largest non-profil organ- 
ization in llie city and since Collegedale 
without SMC would be unthinkable, it 
follows thiit there needs lo be close coop- 
eration between the city government and 

the college. Such cooperalion will benefit 

SMC and the city. The July 4 cele- 
bration is another area where there has 
been continuing cooperation. 
Mayor Fuller said that students who live 
ere six months can register lo vole m 
Collegedale elections by going downtown 
the Election Commission or by waitmg 
until there is registration here in College- 
dale. Such registration takes place period- 
ically before local election. He strongly 
urged SMC sludents to register and vote. 
He stressed that SMC students are invited 
lo attend City Council meetings which are 
held on the Tirst and third Mondays of 
each month al City Hall al 7 p.m. 

It is anticipated ihat work will begin 
shortly on the moving of the gas line, 
the S80,000 project which caused the 
city to assess a S5.00 car sticker on each 
Collegedale driver. It is hoped that the 
road can be completed by the end of 1976. 

We invite your attendance at future 
History Club meetings. The next scheduled 
event is Ihe showing of "The Great Loco- 
motive Chase" on Saturday night, November 
1, at 8 p.m. in the Cafeteria. The admission 
fee will be only SOt, and ihe event is open 
al! SMC students, faculty, and staff and 
their families. 

Also projected for the future are several 
guest speakers: Dr. Cecil Rolfe talking 
on inflation and recession on December 3, 
Mayor Pat Rose of Chattanooga on Jan- 
uary 12, Senator Ray Albright on April 
12. and the British Consul in Atlanta, 
speaking on the American Revolution 
from the British standpoint at a date lo be 
determined. If you will watch Ihe Campus 
Accent you will see notices of these var- 
ious meetings. 

Miss Ann Huizenga has been chosen as 
Inlerim Secretary to serve for Ihe balance 
of the semester while Jan DcWare is doing

service director, admits that mosl of tiic 
complaints students make about (he

food bui on (he cost,

some siudenls feel, the cafeteria is not

laiiii' decree. We're not planning

I \k major cost increases have been 
in ihc entrees and desserts. Worthing-

[their prices, but according to Grange

When ask.d num-iki n\ii lud con-

discussed but that any change would 
be up to the College Board. Then he 
went on to explain several of the dif- 
ferences such a system entails. 

For those who think a flat-rate 
system would enable them to eat 
the same food that cost them SI20 
under itemized charging for S90 they 
are sadly mistaken. "The biggest dif- 
ference under a flat-rate system ' ' 
iimpier meals are served," explained 


such as vegetables which students can 
eat all they want of. Many items like 
the nuts would disappear from the 
serving line, and others like yogurt 
wouldn't be available nearly as often," 

He then went on to say that if 
students were more selective now they 
could cut down on their bill. Although 
many items have gone up, vegetables 
are actually 2 cents cheaper now than 

Also the Hat-rale system is based on 
a certain percentage of absenteeism. If

Dear Editor, 

After having given the matter con- 
siderable thought, 1 have become con- 
vinced that the so-called alter call is 
not only unfair but wrong. Let me

have dedicated themselves to God will

whether they respond to a call, stay

But the remainder, who are not 
ready lo accept Christ, are faced with 
the choice of publically acting a lie or 
making a spectacle of themselves if they 

are honest enougli to remain sealed 
What kind of choice is that? 

It's argued that a call gives a new 
convert a chance to publically affirm 
his decision. But isn't Ihal why we have 
baptism? Again, it's maintained that 
a call may give just the impetus a m- 
vering individual needs to make his de- 
cision. Are wavering decisions desirable'' 
Doesn't this type of convert often fall ' 
into apostasy within a short time? 

Incidentally, there's an interesting 
sidelight to tliis thesis. If I believe calk 
are wrong, then it is hypocrisy for nie lu 
condone them by participating in them. 
Since hypocrisy is a sin, it follows thai

Knittel Returns from Council 

President Frank Knittel recently 
returned from the denomination's 
Fall Council held at General Confcr- 
Headquarters in Takoma Park, 

~' etc were no great, dramatic 
for the council at the 1975 
ssion, according to President 
Knittel. A good many people were 
anticipating a discussion on the ordina- 

1 of y 

been working on this, but a report i 

ady foi the Fall Council. Another 
commitlee has been working on the 
questions of distribution of lithe money, 
well as the whole matter of divorce 
d remarriage among Seventh-day 
Advcnlisls. The committees working 
hese issues are preparing formal 
s. These were nol ready for the 
Fa'll Council. 

Allhougli the cost of living index 
:e a great deal during this past year, 
i also during the last few months, 
the Fall Council finally authorized only 
small increase in wages. There is a 
eat feeling that we all need to be 
rry much concerned about church 
finances and that we need to make 
that the rcnumeralion of denomi- 
mal employees does not lend to 
■ along merely because 

rclircment program for denomi- 
national employees was modified only 
sliglilly, and no substantial changes 
Iwere made. There were no significant 
lalteraiions of basic church policies or 

programs, and the total tone of the 
Fall Council was quite low key. One 
could not help but be impressed, how- 
ever, with the fact that althougli dif- 
ferences of opinion were expressed, 
there is increasing evidence that there 
is continuing and increasing unity 
within the basic church structure. 

The Seventh-day Advcntist Church 
annually has a Fall Council which con- 
ducts most of the continuing business 
of the church. It is the resnon'^ibiiilv 
of (he General Conference, in session 
every five years, to establish the gen- 
eral structure of the church and ihe 
various departments within the church. 
1 1 is not feasible to have a total General 
Conference session every year, and yet 
there is a considerable amount of busi- 
ness that needs to be conducted annually. 
For this purpose, the Fall Council is 
convened each autumn in order to take 
care of business items that must be 
attended to at frequent intervals. 

Each fall, representation includes 
the division presidents from all the 
!as divisions, together with other 
overseas officers on a rotating 
In North America the represen- 
tation at Fall Council includes the presi- 
dents of all of the conferences and 
i, the presidents of the colleges 
liversilies, heads of the pubhshing 
houses, heads of other major institutions 
operated either directly by the General 
Conference or by the union. The atten- 
dance at the Fall Council is usually 
about 200. A list of delegates to the

Insight Announces Contest 

The editors oUnsighi are pleased to 
announce the 1976 Short Story Contest. 
Cash prizes will total SyOO and will 

include a S500 grand award. 

The contest is open to both student 
and professional writers. Separate judgine 
will be done. 

The first place award is S250, second 
place S200. and third SI 50 for each 
category - professional and student 
There will be one S500 grand prize. In 
addition, other stories will be purchased 
at Insight's regular rates. 

Insight is looking for stories that il- 
luminate some aspect of Christian life 
found in witnessing experiences, social 
relationships, parent-children encounters, 
school life, young married situations, 
man-God encounters, and, frankly, any 
story that deals with the religious dimen- 
sion. But this does not mean an obvious, 
preachy, moralizing, kind of conclusion. 

We are currently overstocked with 
I'enfant terrible, or the struggles of a 
youthful rebel type stories. We none- 
theless recognize that occasionally such 
1 story, while painful, can provide a mir- 
or of ourselves that can have a positive 
esult. Such stories should indicate why 
. person left the church and why he 

Short stories submitted for this con- 
est should be short. No more than 
800 words. 

All stories should be based on actual 
vents. The writer may change names, 
and juxtapose 

for purposes of dramatic i; 
terest. However, the thrust of the story 
must square with reaUty seen from some 
Christian viewpoint. 

U is essential for writers lo keep in 
mind that every short story contains 
conflict in some form. The judges will 
be looking for it in action that builds 
o a climax and denouement. Student

When seleciing their story, writers 
must keep in mind that Insight's pri- 
mary audience ranges from 16 to 25. 
Younger readers tend to appreciate 
simpler stories that highlight action anc 
adventure. Older readers Trequently 
enjoy subtle stories that emphasize re- 
lationships, decision making, and cover 
the complexities of living successfully 
in the 70's. 

Most winning short stories develop 
one incident through characters skill- 
fully drawn, througii dialogue, and 
effective portrayal of mood 

Most unsuccessful short st< 
lack a central incident or story line and 
end up becoming just a telling. 

The judges will use five criteria in eval- 
uating manuscripts: (1) spiritual value 
of insight gained; (2) character descriptior 

(3) use of language and believable dialogue 

(4) artistry; mood, place, sensory appeal,

Dear students and faculty, .i|^ 

I'm sorry about (he consternalion 
resulting from the recent add in the 
Accent concerning research papers. It 
was an add that came in the mail, and 
after looking it over I felt that it was 
offering research assistance rather than 
wholesale cheating. But after looking 
at it more closely with retrospective 
wisdom, I realize that the student who 
would write in for this information 
would not be seeking supplemental re- 
search material but a completed paper.

It's happened in every age - leaders arise, 
people follow mob-like after their words, 
and symbols come lo characterize those 
leaders and groups of disciples. 

r founding fathers, 200 years ago, 
the symbols were a broken bell and an 
unbroken circle of thirteen stars on a 
background of blue. Thousands of pa- 
triotic citizens marched through the 
of western Europe inspired by 
their leader's enthusiasm and his myster- 

swastika. In the latter half of the 
twentieth-century other symbols have 
emerged. Everything from station wagons

they, indeed, were Ihe true followers of 
the Christ.

this be the symbol? He looked further 
the distant future and surveyed an 
urban avenue. Signs lined the boulevard, 
each bearing a symbol. Some depicted 
a cross, others a fish, some a cluster of 
angels, some a star, while other signs were 
shaped like liglithouses, and behind each 
one stood a building where people met 
to extol the virtues of their particular 
symbol to the exclusion of the others

There is one other area also-BAN-

our food service is supposedly available 
to supplement the service provided for 
the students. In other words, banquets 
arc an instrument designed to take up 
some of the loss incurred by the cafe- 
teria, I wonder just how possible this 
is with the expenditure evident by ban- 
quet prices. Certainly there are many 
things necessary for banquets; but some 
things just are not. Last year there were 
whiskey barrels purchased to cut in half 
and serve green salad in. These items 
are very expensive. Tliey looked real 
nice and added to the atmosphere most 
delicately. But there were salad bowls

and since this hits us all, I decided to ex-

There is no question but that the Word 
of God is abounding. In English, the Word 
has been abounding at the rate of 2 14 new 
translations a year. There has arisen a gene- 
ration that knows not King James. Yet, 
amidst the plethora of modern versions on 
the market today, none has attained the 
status of the authorized version. Those 
who have been seeking a guide to orient 
them in choosing a Bible now have that 
guidance in So Many Versions (Zonder- 
van. 1975, pap. S2.95) by Sakae Kubo 
and Walter Specht, professors at Andrews 


Several scholarly examinations of the 
major versions have been pubhshed; this 
is the most complete and up-to-date. Si- 
gnificantly, it is also one of the first books 
written by Adventist scholars to De puD- 
lished by an evangelical publisher such as 
Zondervan (Evangelicals have always clas- 
sed SDA's as a cult along with Jehovah's 
Witnesses, Christian Scientists and Mor- 
mons, but this position is being relaxed). 
Besides the in-deplh evaluation of 19 of 
the most important versions, the book 
includes an appendix listing 131 versions 
publisiied since 1900 not important en- 
ougli to merit a complete chapter with 
brief annotations. The book is conclud- 
ed with a chapter on guidelines for sel- 
ecting a version. In the back there is a 
separate bibliography for each chapter. 
Unfortunately there are no indexes. 


Conservative evangelicals have not 
always hailed the new versions with joy 
and rejoicing. When tlie Revised Stan- 
dard Version first appeared, one pastor 
burned it in his pulpit on Sunday morn- 
ing(what belter way to induce every 
person in the congregation to purchase 
a copy!). Typical of this type of at- 
titude are such titles as Good News Fur 
Modern Man : The Devil's Masterpiece 
and 77ic' New English Bible : Satan 's 
Polluted Translation. Probably these 
folks are not aware that similar con- 
troversy greeted the arrival in 1611 of 
the King James Version, which was call- 
ed a heretical translation that would per- 
vert the faith of the people. 

Why do we need new translations any- 
way? The authors list three main reasons: 
new discoveries of older manuscripts, arch- 
eological discoveries which shed liglil on 
the meaning of the text, and the process 
of change witliJn the English language, 
in which old words become obsolete, etc. 
These factors will continue to operate in 

the authors. 

The King James Version (KJV) was 
a monument of English Prose, yet those 
who have grown up with it can hardly 
realize how extremely difficult it can be 
to understand today. The KJV contains 
over a thousand obsolete words and not 
a few indecipherable passages. For ex- 
ample, what does Paul mean in 2 Cor. 

ye are straitened in your own bowels"? 

ddk bnglish might t-xpecl Paul to go on 
and prescribe a good laxative in the next 
verse; but Paul is actually protesting the 
Corinthians' coldness toward him. And 
why does Paul claim in Phil. 3: 20 thai 

"Our conversalion is in heaven"? Has 
Paul been dialoguing with angels? No, 
he means "Our citizenship is in heaven." 
Really, God's Word should not be made 
any more cryptic than necessary. The 
authors fear that "There is a grave dan- 
ger that the continued use of this ver- 
sion may ^ve modern man the impre- 
ssion that the Bible belongs to another 
age, and that it is irrelevant to the tw- 
entieth century." A note of caution 
might be in order here, however, to 
ministerial students, who will find that 
tlie KJV is still dear to the hearts of 
many in their congregations, and it 
may be necessary to use it in the pulpit 
(and the authors recommend this) and 
when working with fundamentalist ev- 
angelicals from other denominations. 

Those used to the KJV are in for 
some surprises when they turn to the 
modern versions, which sometimes 
agree unanimously against the KJV in 
certain passages. It is a bit disconcert- 
ing, for instance, to learn that what 
sounds like a noble expression of faith 
on Job's part in the KJV ("Though He 
slay me, yet will I trust in Him," Job 
13:15) actually means something like 
this: "God may kill me for this, but 
I intend to argue my case with Him." 
There are also otiier passages in Job 
where the KJV translators softened 
Job's complaints against God, painting 
his faith in rosier hues than it really 
was. Also disconcerting is the disappear- 
ance of such a promise as "When the 
enemy shall come in like a fiood, the 
Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a stand- 
ard against him" (Isa. 59:19), which is 
simply a mis-translation. 

Not all changes are so discouraging, 
however. Often difficulties are resolved, 
as in Lk. 2: 14, where the angels sing of 
Christ bringing "Peace on earth, j 

ardmen"(KJV). But 

a scrolls have shed n 

making the peace pertain only to Chr- 
ist's followers and resolving tne contr- 
adiction. There are many similar im- 

There were also a number of pass- ^^1 
ages in the KJV of dubious validity ' 

which have been deleted or relegated 
to footnotes in the newer versions, 
such as I John 5:7, probably the strong- 
est trinitarian passage in the Bible, which, 
unfortunately, was not in the Bible until 
it was inserted there in the middle ages. 
But rest assured that, with aU the chan- 

fes. Adventist doctrine remains intact, 
eventh-day Adventism does not rise 
or fall with any one version.

* Knittel Raises Funds For TICF 

Presidertl Frank Knittel raised funds 
.Or tlic Tennessee Independent College 
Fund in Johnson City and Knoxvilie 
November 10-12. 

The TICF is a group of 20 accredited 
four-year private colleges which have band- 
ed together to raise funds. Although there 
has been some sort of fund raising for the 
past 20 years, just two years ago the east 
and west areas of Tennessee which had 
been under separate organizations got 
logeihei. This is when SMC was invited 

Almost every state has a similar plan, 
but Tennessee is one of the more active 
Ust year TICF had the highest 
1 increase which resulted in receiv- 
mg special grants from IBM and Levi 

Each year all of the college presidents 
spend five days soliciting funds from bus- 
^Tt ,^[','"^' solicited in Johnson City 
With Jack Nipper, an insurance executive 
and Tom Bach, the manager of the John-' 
«>" Lily Uvi Strauss plant. Harry Car- 
michael, president of the Ira Watson store 
«iam accompanied him in Knoxvilie. 
Km teUays that they were cordially re- 
ceived and were successful in raising a 
P«">c>n of the 5300,000 goal for 1975 
Th.s,S3S60,000increase from last year's 

Porty percent of the money raised 

will be divided into 20 equal units, and 
the other 60 % is divided proportionally 
according to enrollment. Although Vander- 
buLlt is the largest private school, only 

tage of funds. Because of this SMC w 
receive the largest sum of money. 

According to Knittel. "If the 3300,000 
goal is raised, we'll get between S 1 6,000 
andSI8,000." He went on to explain 
that this money is not to be used for build- 
ing but for the general operating costs. 
It would also be available for scholarships. 
He said that at the present time the ad- 
ministration has no idea on how the money 
will be spent, and that SMC won't receive 
any money until next spring. 

The budget for private higlier education 
is just as hi^ as the amount the stale spends 
on the public colleges and universities, there- 
fore according to Knittel private education 
plays a very important role in Tennessee. 
If all of the private colleges were to sud- 
denly shut down the increase in tax dol- 
lars that would have to be spent on educatioir 
would be measured in millions of dollars. 

Knittel says that"hopefully in three 
or four years the amount of money 
solicited by TICF will reach one 
million dollars."

Nielson Appointed Coordinator

platfonns in strategic locations which will

She emphasized that the plan was not her

Cutting Cafeteria Costs 

The Food Service Management students 
have a dual interest in the recent discus- 
sions regarding cafeteria prices. As stu- 
dents, they watch their money, as food 
offers a variety of kidney beans, lentils, 
baked beans, and others at the price of 
a vegetable, not the price of an entree. 

What about desserts? Most of us 
would do well to avoid lliem 90% of 
the time; and subtract the cost from 
our bill. Try an extra serving of bread 
or vegetable or a salad, instead of the 
more expensive, sweet dessert. While 
we're talking about sweets-look at the 
beverages you drink. Juice and milk 
give more nutrition, often at a lower 
cost than the soft drinks. Of course, 
you don't have to drink with your 
meals at all. 

Consider eating two meals a day- 
it's difficult to eat as much in two 
meals as three. Consider keeping 
some food in your room (or brown- 
bag it to tlie cafe to cat with your 
friends). Ajar of peanut butler, a loaf 
of bread or fresh fruit are easy to keep 
on hand, if you have a refrigerator, 
keep some milk and granola. 

To summarize, choose simple foods, 
be moderate (temperate!) and plan 
ahead. Budget your food dollar. Dial- 
a-mcnu, so you know in advance what 
to plan. Above all-look at the alterna- 
tives. Good nutrition can often be 
obtained for less money: substitute 
legumes for entree, milk for sofi drinks 

and juice, bread instead of rolls, fruit 
or salad instead of dessert; buy some 
tilings at the VM. Many people keep 
their food bill between S40-80 a monti 
You can too~if you choose carefully. 
-Alice Calkins 

For those of you who have wondered 
whether this is some secret experiment 



"li vouVe got (he money, why not 
spend It, and if you don'i-welUmd some 

way lo spend it anyway." Or. Sure. I m 
all for it; at least I think I am. Or. 
"I don't really care, but don't worry. 
I'll vote yes." 

Tlie government has had this bug lor 
a long time, lots of American families 
have it, and I'm afraid SMC has some 
serious' symptoms. I call it the "spend 
the money" syndrome. 

Our SA budget is almost $20,000 more 
than Andrev^s University's, and we seem 
more than willing to spend $1,000 here 
and $1,000 there without a momenl's 
hesitation. , , . . 

As Acteni editor, I was on the budget 
committee which voted on this year's 
budget belore sending it to the senate. 
and just like everyone else, I nonchalantly 
voted yes for every proposition. Unanimous 
votes may be a sign of unity, but they're 
also a sign thai badly needed cliecks and 
balances are missing. 

The majority of students here don't 
really seem to care how their SA repre- 
sentatives spend the money. Oh, one or 
two grumble now and then, but as a whole 
the student body is apathetic towards the 
SA, and this in turn leaves the SA officers 
and senate wide open to do as they please. 
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not lash- 
ing out against the SA officers or the 
senate. I'm sure that every penny that's 
been appropriated has been done so with 
the best interests of the student body in 
mind. I'm not complaining so much that 
the money is being spent, but on the way 
it's being spent, 

I'd like to see some controversy, yes, 
even some contention between penny- 
pinching conservatives and spend-ihriit 
liberals. I'd like to see some students 
with enough gumption to stand up and 
speak their mind even if the majority 
disagrees with their viewpoint. I'd like 
to see a little of the spirit ol the 60's 
rather than the apathy of the 70's. 

For instance, last Thursday night a 
town hall meeting was scheduled to 
discuss the planned revisions of the 
Student Center lobby. You know how 
many people showed up? Four! This is 
a very important issue. We're talking in 
terms of around $3,000, and I think this 
much money should at least warrant inter 
interest for enough students lo show to 
have a meeting. I'd be willing to wager 

that il the a 

iek's paper 

announced that the proposal had been 
passed, not one person would bother to 
complain about the expenditure of 
money-ai least not to anyone excepi 
for a couple close friends 

Maybe I'm wrong, maybe I was lusi 
looking for something to write an edi- 
torial about, maybe a good number ol 
you will, and have, expressed your ieel- 
ings. I certainly hope so.

Zarandona Comes From Cuba 

After being born m Mexico, Joshua 
Zarandona found his way to CoUegedale 
to attend SMC. He moved to Cuba when 
he was about three months old and there 
he spent eleven years of his life growing 

Althougfi his father is from Mexico, 
Havana Cuba was home to him, his mother 
and most of his family. 

Cuba is in a tropical setting where it 
never gets much hotter than 80 degrees and 
never quite as cold as it gets here. "Even if 
it in the tropics, thee 

it in the tropics, there is never quite as much 
rain in Cuba as there is in CoUegedale," says 

Joshua's home is now in New Jersey. In 

fact he moved to the United States on his 
birthday. "I regard that as one of the best 
birthday presents I've ever had," says 

ing about SMC from some friends a. 
den Stale Academy, he decided SMC was 
the place to attend college. 

Smce no church schools are allowed tc 
function in Cuba, Joshua had to attend 
public schools. 

"All the teachers there are Communist 

Joseph Zarandona 

they don't allow any r 
teachers," explains Joshua, "and they 
indoctrinate you pretty good there.' 
Although they are able to attend 
church in Cuba, "you have to keep 
your moutli shut about religion when 
out of the church and of course the 
Adventists didn't." 

Joshua is thankful to be at SMC where 
he can exercise his religious freedom.

Hiss Remley Joins PR 

Miss Hilda Fern Remley hasjoined 
Ihe College Relations department of 
Southern Missionary College as Field 
Representative, doing admissions counseling, 
according to Dr. Frank Knittel, President. 

Her responsibilities will consist of visiting 
prospeclivf SMC students, acquainting

She will visii all Seventh-day Adventist 
yound people attending high schools and 
public colleges in Ihe Southern Union, 
which covers the states of Tennessee, Georgia, 
Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, 
andNorth and South Carolina. 

Previously Miss Remley was dean of women 
at Union College, Lincoln, Nebraska, holding 
lliat.position for 22 years. She also has had 
MpeJiencB as an elementary school teacher, 
asadean of girls and as a high school teacher. 

Bprn in Dallas, Texas, Miss Remley grad- 
ualedvfrom Union College with a B.A. degree 
I" English. She has since done graduate work 
at Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Mich. 

Miss Remley is a member of the National 
Association of Women Deans and Counselors. 

Focus Broadcasting, Inc., is searching 
for a Committee of One Hundred to help 
finance its radio-evangelism outreach for 
this coming year, according to Wilfred 
VanGorp, Focus Director. 

Appeals will be sent out by mail to 
previous supporters and friends, requesting 
that they join the committee and donate 
five dollars a month for a year. This will 
hopefully raise a badly needed S6,000. 

This money will go into financing the 
airing of public service broadcasts-com- 
mercial type spots giving listeners a bit 
of good cheer and offering enrollment in 
the broadcast's Bible studies. 

Last year the Focus broadcast was aired 

:r seven stations at the discression of 
the broadcasters. They were heard on 
Nashville, Louisville, Rome, Atlanta, Cin- 

cinatli, and Gatlatine station. 

The organization, composed of members 
from Ihe student body, is now in the pro- 
cess of writing and producing these spots. 
VanGorp says that the process has been 
slow because of the busy schedule, but 
that things will soon be in the swing. 

VanGorp also mentioned the record 
being sold at the Campus Shop featuring 
Lester Reiser on the organ. Sales have 
been good with most of the records being 
sold after various concerts put on by 
Keiser. The album was produced by 
Micky Thurber and included full orches- 
tration, including the SMC Brass Ensemble 
and members from the Charlotte Sym- 
phony Orchestra. The records are on sale 
for five dollars and all profits will go to

tobiography of a black orphan girl 
whose accidental (or providential) meet-

College life has a way of keeping you 
busy all the time. Daily assignments, teait 
projects, along with quizzes and tests scattered | 
here and there not to mention keeping your 
room clean and clothes ready to wear. Why 
it's a wonder that you find time to do any- 
thing but go to classes, study, eat and sleep. 
But you do! There's tennis, baseball, fool- 
ball, ping pong, parties, clubs, singing groups. 
Branch Sabbath School, a little sewing or 
baking on the side or maybe time spent 
wilh a "special friend." 

Somehow it all seems to get done. It may 
not have been done the very best way pos- 
sible but at least it's all done. All vou had 
to do was cut your sleep to five hours 
instead of your usual seven. 

In the midst of it all, have you taken lime 
to get to know Jesus? I don't mean a 5-min- 
ute prayer and a quickly-read verse. 

What's that you say? You're too tired; 
You don't have lime. Is Ihal really the reason? 
Isn't that really a cop-out, the truth being that 
friends, hobbies, studies and extra-curricular 
activities are more important? We seem to 
find time for those things we really enjoy and 
want to do. 

In each of our souls there is a void that only I 
God can fill. Will we, due to our indifference 
and indolence refuse to have it filled? 

If we would come to know Christ we must 
take time to read His Word. This is the only 
way to resist temptations, the only way to 
tmly witness for Christ. It is the only way lo 
remain unruffled and at peace in the midst of 
Ihe trials and annoyances that come to us 
each day. 

I honestly believe we need to re-evaluate 
our priorities. What is really more important- 
friends, grades, hobbies or peace, joy, and 

If we're too busy or too tired lo become 
acquainted with God maybe we need to elimi- 
nate something in our busy schedules. Then 
there won't be so much lo do, and there will 
be more time to rest. Taking our Bibles and 
praying for the Holy Spirit to guide us into 
truth, we may seek to know God. Studying 
His love letter, verse by verse, we may come to 
comprehend those things He has said 
and apply them lo our lives. 

"I don't have time." I wonder if it 
wouldn't be more correct lo say, "I don't 
have lime not to study."? We are told 
that the deceptions of Satan will be so 
subtle ihat only those who have been 
diligent students of Ihe Word will be able

iry so Ihat we may have 
time lo spend studying Ihe Scriptures. Our

Mike Castillo (SMC student) \vrites: 

Waking up in the morning in a dif- 
ferent country with different surround- 
ings and atmosphere, I find that my God 
is waiting for me to point me to the 
riglit road in my actions, thouglits, and 
words, and all that I do around these 
people that I associate with. 

The first few weeks in this new jungle 
home I was greeted in my morning wor- 
ship by a heavenly feeUng. My thoughts 
and senses pointed to God and His warm 
atmosphere which can be felt in the 
reading of Isaiah 55 and Revelation Four. 
But this heavenly blessing left me in my 
second month here, and since then I 
haven't looked for^va^d to my worships 
as much. Somehow the Lord keeps me 
going in my meetings with Him. 

I enjoy my morning worships here. I 
sometimes am heartbroken that I cannot 
have this heavenly feeling with me, but 
soon my desire of this will be fulfilled 
tor I have the promises of Psalms 21:2 
and Revelation 22:12 to claim. 
Linda Gadd (SMC graduate) writes: 

If I had known all the hiking I'd be 
involved in doing, I'd have worked out

I would like some interesting reading, 
I won't feci cheated. The reason for a 
:urc oriented paper this week is the break 

who joined the teaching staff the si 
ond vear of the program. 

Mr. Warner started the program with 
15 students the first year. They built 
— e of the first homes in the Hiawath 

. ind, and was pur- 
chased before completion by Mr. Pete 
Austin, a local Chattanooga business- 

The students have built seven homes 
in the Hiawatha Estates subdivision, 
with prices of the homes ranBine over 

The purpose behind the Home Build- 
ing Technology Program is to prepare 
Christian young men to become con- 

in all aspects of building-framing, plumb- 
ing, wiring, etc. Currently the class is 
doing work here on the campus of SMC. 
Many of you have seen the new apart- 
"""t complex for married couples, 

date will be in April. 1976. The build- 
ing consists of eight two-bedroom 
apartments, an exact replica of the two 
complexes next door. Incidentally, the 
name of these apartments is "Tennessee 
Apartments," for those of you who have 
long been waiting their arrival! 

One. big advantage in taking this 
course is that the students belong to the 

the National Association of Home 
Builders' Convention which is held in 
Dallas each year. This convention draws 
attendance from all corners of the world. 
Last year it drew approximately sixty- 
thousand people from as far away as 
Japan and Russia, ' 

The administration allows the stu- 
dents to attend every other year. The 
faculty and students attend the five- 
day session viewing all of tlie latest 
innovations and ideas in the building 
industry. Besides seeing over six hun- 

well as important builders and lai

The club officers are president, Tom

The course has been a real success 
so far, drawing students from as far

Let's take a closer look at the phrase, "Let s just 
be friends," and by examining it see if we can t help 
clarify a few of those hard to define feelings and hope- 
fully find some general principles and guidelines to 
help those who find themselves in this situation. 

"Let's just be friends." is in most cases although 
said in sincerity almost an impossibility. In the 

first pla. 


s that c 

■- person 

f a relationship than the other. 
■ndship has to be established on eaualitv. and when- 
ever there is inequality there is inevitably exploitation. 

In the beginning of a relationship a couple can just 
be friends. Their desires and qoals are not clearly define 
for it IS the process of friendship which defines these 
goals. At first a relationship has an aura of carefree 
happiness, but gradually the pressure begins to build. 
If both parties either get sick of each other or fall 
in love with each other at a fairly even pace there is 
no problem. 
^ The problem arises when one person decides that 
the relationship is more than a friendship, that it 
is a romance. This outs pressure on the undecided 
partner to make up his mind. The person who hasn't 
made up his mind often has ambivalent feelings. He 
is having a good time and yet at the same time isn't 
sure whether he wants anything more serious. He 
would just as soon keep the relationship at a stand- 
still riqht where it is. 

nfortable. don't get involved any further, and have 
a good time. But it just doesn't work. Once the process 
of friendship has served the purpose of defining goals, 
the relationship will either grow or die on the basis 
of whether or not these goals are congruent

called Placerville where all of the buildings 
were boxy, windowless structures of 
brick and steel without one bit of aesthe- 
beauty. Oh, you couldn't tell that to 
citizens, thou&li. They liked their 
square, tasteless buildings. "Beauty is 
functional," they said, "and our build- 
ings are very functional. Besides, 500 
years ago everyone lived in tents. The 
great and venerable Establio, one of our 
town forefathers, invented square build- 
ings; and if square buildings were good 
enough for him, they're good enough for 

Establio vs. Anti-establio 

In the center of the town square ex- 
cerpts from the laws of building and 
design, codified by Establio in the sixth 
year after tents, were emblazoned on a 
towering steel monument. These laws 
played an important part in structuring 
all building projects in Placerville. Any 
new architectural plans from an outhouse 
to a new government building were judged 
by a select committee of the town elders 
and labeled as either Establio or anti- 
Eslablio plans in an official ceremony 
i,whicli ail citizens of the town were re- 
juired to attend, 


At first Establio's laws only applied to 
guilding and design, but as time went by, 
"-ei-zealous citizens began searching for 

w areas to bring under their jurisdiction. 
^ II became a fad to see what new things 
could be made square and therefore Es- 
tablio. One fool even fried to invent 
square wheels. After this ludicrous idea 
ended in failure, the would-be inventor 
oegan preaching the woes of wheels to 
MVe face. "Any pure and fundamental 
ollower of Establio will shun wheels as 
»ie dominant factor in bringing about 
ine ow disregard for physical labor and 
ard work our young people have today," 

said with religious fervor and sincerity.

The Rebels 

, there 

e young ri 

gades in town who flaunted authority and 
disregarded the laws of Establio. One 
afternoon several of these rebels met 
secretly to discuss the burdensome require- 
ments a square society forced upon them. 

"Square meals, square deals, square is 
beautiful," Reaal, one of the more radical 
dissenters, mimicked in facetious disdain. 
"I'm sick of all the ridiculous slogans, we 
have to chant on public holidays, the un- 
realistic laws we have to obey, the tyranny 
of the town elders." He slammed a fist 
down on the table, his eyes burning with 
the firm determination of revolt. 

Each week the members would 
basement of Reaal's house to plan theii 
revolution. Of course, they sat around 
round table and ate their snacks on rou 

"Give us a year and we'll enlighten the 
poor, ignorant masses about the glory of 
our new round world," Philio, the secre- 
tary of the society preached, 

"Yes, give us a year," the others echoed. 

As the weeks passed, Reaal and his 
followers worked night and day. They 
pubUshed an underground newspaper 
entitled For Squares Only wliicli presented 
insidious doctrines in a seemingly innocent 
way. After reading the title, the town 
elders agreed to subsidize the paper, not 
bothering to read tlie content. 

Philio decided that the best way to reach 

the young people who would have to spear- 
head any revolution if it were to prove a 
success, was througfi music. He started a 
musical group and traveled from cafe to 
cafe singing his philosophies under the 
f haunting melodies and symbol- 

, Philic 


of the under-thirty generation. The staid 
conservative couldn't stand his music, 
but they considered it just another passing 
fad and nothing to get shook up about. 

The Revolt 

It came exactly one year and two weeks 
after the first clandestine meeting in Reaal's 
house. When the code word to start the 
armed revolt was sent from the jail by 
Reaal, i( spread like wildfire among the 
dissatisfied populace. Within hours, scream- 
ing mobs swept like a tidal wave through the 
streets of Placerville, They overwhelmed 
the guards stationed at the jail, liberated all 
of the prisoners, and began burning and pd- 
laging anything they considered Establio. 

Reaal, Philio, and the other leaders of 
'The Society of the Round" led the 
throngs with a cry of victory on their Ups 
and the determination of revenge in their 

After having all government officials of 
the previous administration executed, Reaal 
declared himself town mayor and formed a 
new goveriunent. "Utterly destroy all 
square buildings," he commanded his fol- 
lowers, "and we'll begin building a grand 
and glorious town of spheres and circles.

Reaal was shocked. He couldn't believe

He wanted to make this sagacious stranger

town following the njles of Establio. 
But if he ^id this, what would happen to

Francia Sirpi is different from most 
mission stations in that you almost live,

My job here is in many areas. For 
those who need teeth pulled, I pull 
teeth. For the sick, I play the part of 
nurse, doctor, and pharmacist. When a

I have been teaching the afternoon 
nursing classes, and that is where I get 
close to the people; they're just like 
any other students. They like to play, 
skip class, and be serious. 

Of all these jobs, the most rewarding 
was lo have the students tell me they 
were sorry for problems they cause, and 
for them to come to me individually and 
ask for spiritual help. To see the expres-

"I will never be a teacher." Well, here 1 
am, not only the school teacher, but I 
am in charge of the school. There are 
ten students from nearby villages. Most 
of them speak English fairly well; how- 
ever, there are a few who don I seem to 
understand any English. 

I try to give the students the basis of 
anatomy and physiology for each system 
we start into. Then I lake them into the 
different diseases, 1 have started to leach 
them some of the basics of physical exams 
and diagnosing so that they can be getting 
into proper habits during their clinical 
experience. By the lime they graduate, I 
hope they will be able to use physical 
diagnosis techniques to find out what 
they need to do to treat the disease. 

Our clinic requirements are quite dif- 
ferent from most clinics. We have no 
doctors. Therefore our students will 
have to be able to diagnose without 
lab equipment and know what medica- 
tion to give and when not to give it. 
Also Ihey will need to know how to 
distinguish whether or nol a patient 
needs to go to the Moravian hospital 
about two hours drive from the mission. 

My husband is a junior nursing student 
at SMC, He is teachmg the math for 
medication and will be leaching different 
sections of the nursing. He recently 
taught suturing. 

As you can see, this is a very unusual 
nursing school. We are trying to make 
nursing praclioners out of these students 
in one short year.

Life is waking up on a cold brisk 
morning to the crackling of a warm fire 
just outside your tent and the sweet 
smell of breakfast cooking mixed with 
the smell of pines, oaks and smoke. 
There is nothing quite like it anywhere. 

Camping is a way lo get away from it 
all. It's a rather common sight to see 
SMC students on their way out on a 
Friday afternoon with their back packs 
headed for a weekend in the woods. 

Many students have never been able 
to experience this closeness to nature due 
to the lack ol equipment. No longer do 
these folks have an excuse. Now there 
is an outlet right on campus selling some 
of the finest in camping apparatus that 

Recreational Outfitters is located in 
the College Plaza Mall and run by Bill 
Wliite, Jeff ALen and David Parks. They 
can help you make the choice of equip- 
ment that is riglit for you. 

The shop sells all kinds of equipment 
by the names of Gerry, Northface, Op- 
timus, Vasque and others. They sell such 
tilings as sleeping bags from $50 to S165, 
back packs from S35 to S70, dehydrated 
food, food containers, pack stoves, boots, 
jackels. mountain climbing equipment and 

Speaking of food, one can still enjoy the 
primitiveness of being out in the wild and 
still eat like a king. There are so many good 
foods that are made just for camping which 
are so easy to fix. 

Some of the dehydrated foods the out- 
fitters sell arc gorp, cheese omelettes, scramblj 
ed egg mix, hashed brown potatoes, pancake 
mixes, soup, instant apple sauce, freeze dried 
peaches, freeze dried strawberries, instant

of outstanding Christmas activities for 
SMC's fortunate faculty, students, and 

Mr. Grundsel, programs committee 
chairman, directs tlie planning of 10 
to 12 enjoyable programs which are 
presented througjiout the school year. 

This year's holiday activities include: 
the annual Christmas tree ligiiting, com- 
plete with carols, Santa, and refresh- 
ments; and inspiring and moving chapel 
sermon titled "Christmas," by Elder Des 
Cummings, Jr.; a Christmas MV program; 
' '.ps featuring the musical sounds 

at Northgate Mall perfor 
ing Christmas selections; and an evening 
open for various Christmas parties; a 
sacred Christmas concert by the SMC 
choir and chorale; the men's club under- 
privileged children's party, which brings 
delighted smiles of appreciation and 

grateful, affectionate hugs from the un- 
fortunate; caroUing; and of course, the 
SMC Band's memorable presentation of 
their "Bicentennial Christmas Concert." 

To complete the festive atmosphere 
on campus, Christmas really is in the air, 
with seasonal sounds echoing over the 
campus during the evening hours, cour- 
lesy ofWSMC-FM. 

What does all this add up to? As 
students, we want to say "thank-you" 
to Dr. Marvin Robertson, Dr. Jack 
McClarty. Elder Des Cummings, Eider

An Unsatisfactory Institution 
That's Here To Stay 

trepidation, last-minute cram sessions, and the harried

This mama of placing so much importance on a letter 
starts in the first grade. Little Billy is praised or chided 
depending on what the first report card says. "You're 
so smart," his parents say. "Here's a dollar for each of 
the A's you made." Or, "This report card is lousy. No 
more TV until you bring these grades up." 

After a while, a child begins to place his self worth on 
the results of a report card. If he gets D's and F's, he 
thinks of himself as a D or F, so why try? Or on the other 
hand, if he catches on to games students play and makes 
A's, he doesn't care what he learns as long as he keeps get- 
ting A's or B's. Creativity and iniative may be rewarded, 
but why should a student go to that much trouble if he 
; which brings just as 

irds with half the effort 


So what's the solution-throw out the grading system? 
This would be great, but both teachers and students l<now 
that without the crutch of grades hardly any students 
would be motivated. 

Since the system is probably here to stay, as students 
we're going to have to resign ourselves to accept its inade- 
quacies. We can blame all our woes on a lousy institution, 
but this isn't hurting anyone but ourselves. 

We need to remind ourselves that the professors are here 
to mstill as much knowledge in us as we're willing to absorb 
Everything we learn at school is something less we will have 
to learn when we 90 out into the "real" world and get a job. 

There are some areas where I believe a pass/fail system 
based on participation and attendance should be implemented 
or at least seriously considered. 

For instance, the physical education recreation classes a 
taught for only one reason-to provide an opportunity for 
students to get some exercise and to gain skills that will 
make life healthier and happier. Why do you need to 
grade a class like this? 


; tha

gion classes through the same scholastic mold as every 
other class. We already tend to put a grade on our ret 
tionship with God based on performance, and it seems 
dangerous to me to put an A,B,C, or D on anything re 
lating to religious experience.

' i iini ironbled about mandatory cliurcK 
attendance. I know some of llie reason- 
ing beliind it, and it sounds good, but I am 
aho aware of the actual harm it is doing. 

Surely, everyone wishes to liave their de- 
cisions made for llicm; thai is much easier 
than using their own willpower. I would 
much rather be carried above the wave 
than have to swim, but very soon ! must 
swim, and I think it is time I started getting 
used to the water. Yes. by coming here,I 
have used my power of choice and chosen to 
let someone else provide for me the moti- 
vation to do what I should be doing not 
only willfully, but willingly and of my own 

Aspirin and other symptom-relieving 
drugs are advised against by the Spirit of 
Prophecy. Is not mandatory church much 
like these drugs? 1 1 covers the symptoms 
of inadequate family and Christian relation- 
ships, but does nothing to strike at the 
heart of the real problem. In fact, it has, 
like many symptom-disguising drugs, harm- 
ful side effects, mainly that of the weaken- 
ing of the will- 

If the student is departing from "the 
way that he should go", il is because he 
has not been trained early enough to make 
his own decisions. Forcing him to go now 
is only in a way placing a shameful hand 
over the real problem~a problem which 
the college wishes to hold no blame for. 
The left hand is paying no attention to 
what the right hand is doing. 

Lack of attendance is a problem, but 
the place to encourage right action is in 
the home, not in college after it is to late. 
I can understand the concern of faculty^ 
and sponsors of the school over lack of 
attendance, but is this the right way to 
solve the problem? 

The church is sick, and the apathy of 
the youth testifies to this. SMC is a strong 
college, stronger than many of het sister 
Adventist colleges. But even here, ! see 
all around me in the dorm both (hose who 
are apathetic and also those who are pro- 

fessed agnostics in numbers y 
even be surprised at. The way ,„ y , 
those who do not attend is firsi J' I 
vert them. Forced church attendCj 
only harden them in the samewaril 
Pharoah was hardened by repeaijl' 
The majority of the students are o r 
side, and they will not be turned b- 
making their own choice. Togeihei,'

the apathetic by example to the U>ifM

Food Baskets 

Willi the purpose of directing attention 
from self to others, getting to know some 
comniunity dwellers and giving encourage- 
metii where it was needed, the Giris' Club 
delivered food baskets to needy families 
the evening of November 20. 

Under the direction of Heidi Neplune, 
Girls' Club Vice-president, each wing in 
Thatcher and each floor in Jones worked 
with their R.A.'s in preparing baskets of 
food for the families. 

Most of the food was donated: May- 
field Dairy gave milk and cottage cheese; 
McKees Bakery contributed Little Debbies; 
Colonial Bakery presented bread and can- 
ned food was donated by the community', 
Aboui one hundred dollars was spent of 
Girls' Club funds for fresh produce. 
In ilie divided groups, several enthused

of the families. A little surprise, but mostly 
thankfulness. 'The Lord has certainly led

Neighbors in the community give the 
pastors of the various Collegedale churches 
names of families that need encouragement- 
mental and spiritual as well as physical. 
These names are passed to Ihe Dorcas

The Joys And Frustrations Of Student Teaching 

'Miss Jones, may I turn in my report 
tomorrow? What did I make on my test? 
May I go to the restroom? Miss Jones, 
are you married? " 

Answering these and countless other 
questions is only part of my duty as a 
student teacher. I grade papers, write 
lesson plans and construct tests. 

ng a music teacher at Brainerd High, 
I have a wide range of students in my 
classes. Most students enrolled in Music 
y and Music Appreciation are plan- 
tiing on pursuing a musical career in college. 
In choir, ihere are many hard workers; 
lhes€ members are in choir because they 
■e lo sing and perform. 
On the other hand, in the first period 
lOir must of the students attend because 
eir altitudes and dlcipline was so bad 
Ihat teachers had no other place to place 
Ih'^m. Thats the time when I play baby- 
teacli/r"' ^^ '^'""'^^ '"^lead of student

^"'dcniteachirig. I constructed a list of the 
Id imstralions I feel on any given day 


!. Having your students fail a test when 
you gave them all the questions and answer: 
the day before, 

2. When students misunderstand the as- 
signment after my futile efforts to give 
them directions. 

3. Seeing 12 people chewing gum in choir. 

2. Is stating my instructions so clearly 
that there is no question about what needs 
to be done. 

These people were not down to their 
last bread crumb-but had very little money 
and did appreciate the food, but more than 
that, many were lonely and grateful that 
someone took their time to show them 

Not all teaching is serious— humor . 
well as joy and frustration is found in 
student teaching experience. A 
linger in my mind from indicents occurring 
at Brainerd High. For instance: 

On my first day of conducting varsity 
choir, I became slightly annoyed, for all I 
could see were heads buried in the music. 
I could not get their attention. The room 
temperature was rising and without think- 
ing I started to unbutton the jacket to my 
suit. A sudden stillness filled the room. 
The girls on the front row were blushing 
with embarrassment. By the time I reacliea 
(he third button, one of the girls shreid 
with embarrassment. By the time I reached 
the third button, one of the girls shreiked , 
"Miss Jones, what are you doing? " 

It was now quite obvious what they were 
thinking, and without saying a word, I re- 
moved the jacket, revealing a blouse under- 
neath. Willi relief the same girl exclaimed, 
"She does have on clothes!" 

For 15 minutes howls of laugliter could 
be heard coming from choir room 101. Bui 
I'll tell you this, I had their attention the 
rest of the period. 

Other memorable occasions come to mind- 
of fellows in my class asking for my phone 
number, or the time I got kicked out of the 
library because no "students" were allowed 
in al that time. 

I finish my practice-teaching December 12. 
You're all invited to our Christmas program, 
Thursday night, December 11. 

"I wonder if I may leave this with 
you? " This is what 1 usually ask after 
a conversation I've had with someone 
as 1 am offering them a Steps to Christ 
or some other piece of literature. 

Literature can be an opening wedge 
where all other efforts may fail. It is 
a great work, an important work, and 
a quick way of giving Ihe 3rd Angel's 
Message. Ellen White writes, 'The mes- 
sage of truth is to go to all nations, and 
people; it's publications, printed in many I 
different languages are to be scattered 
abroad like the leaves of autumn." 

I believe that now as never before 
in SDA history is the time for us to 
spread our literature like the leaves of 
autumn, to continue to sell it, but most 
of all to give it away while we still a^^ 
have it in such abundant supply. ^V 

The Adventist population in the U.S. 
composes only 20% of the world Adven- 

opulation; however, we possess 80% I 
of Ihe Adventist wealth. What a privilege 
and what a responsibility we have of 
sharing the resources the Lord has so 
abundantly blessed us with. By negleci- 
ing to do our part now, we will later 
have the same work to do under adverse 
conditions, and our neglect will nccessi- 
ite heavenly angels finishing the work 
hich has been intrusted lo us. We must 
remember that we are judged by what we 
could have done as much as what we 
have done. By not doing anything, aren't 
: denying Christ? 

There is now more searching than ever 
other churches. It is up to us to help 
them find what we hold so precious. I 

n the receiving end myself only 
about four years ago. I was in a church 
held their own traditions above that 
of God's law, a church that kept its 
people as much in the dark as possible, 

church that taught its people to be- 
lieve that tliey were not qudified to 
understand the Bible regardless of their 
education. But because of the love 
/as in my heart as a newborn 
Christian, and because of the truth I 
searching for, I rejoiced and will 
be grateful for the piece of Ad- 
ist literature that I received.

• A P-tle Of TUee Be^r. 


Once upon a lime in Hie great Happy 
Valley Foiesl three bears liappily roomed 
logeliiei. One bear was so liuge and furry 
thai when site sal liet slomacli rolled inio 
three or four layers; llie middle bear was 
mediumish, rather dainty, and certainly 
nol far. and llie last bear was so small llial 
just a few bites of food would stuff her 
to the top of her furry liitle head. 

One rainy morning the three bears left 
their den on third floor of tJie big, big 
cave where all the She-Bears lived. Under 
their bright umbrellas lliey walked merrily 
to the center of the forest lo the wide 
clearing where all the bears came to be 
served their steaming meals. 

Big Bear scrambled through line and 
emerged with three bowls of grits. Middle 
Bear with her feminine wiles worked her 
way deftly througli the lines to get her 
bowl of grits. Tiny Bear squeezed in and 
around all the bears gathered for breakfast, 
and finally came forth carefully guarding 
lier half-serving of grits. 

When they sal to enjoy their meal all 
three bears looked at Iheir bills. Big Bear 
roared. Middle Bear grumbled, and Tiny 
Bear squealed in dismay. The Forest 
Granger came running from the inner den 
where the food was prepared. When he 
saw the three bears making the uproar he 
asked with concern, "Whatever is wrong? 
Did Goldilocks eat your food? " 

"Goldilocks nothing," Tiny Bear whimp- 
ered. "I've heard Ihal Old Tale before, but 
this is no bedlime story! Instead it keeps 
me up all night worrying." 

They all shoved their bills under the 
Grangers nose. "That's what's wrong," 
Big Bear growled furiously. "I can't afford 
bills like this!" 

"I understand how you feel," the Forest 
Granger soothed. "But we still have lo pay 
Ihe bears that work here, you know. We 
should have raised the prices many moons 
ago. We are cutting all the comers we can, 
and I assure you we are not making any 
money off of you." 

'^ Wdl ! m surL I didn I lji torty bowls 
of their grits. I've been enjoying cooking 
my own food all month. There must be 
some mistake." Middle Bear tried nol to 
sound angry. 

Tiny Bear just cried at the Ihoughl of 
forty whole bowls of grits slufled into 
her poor little stomach. 

As soon as they could, ihe three bears 
found the Forest Granger in the center of 
Ihe forest where all the bears caine to eat. 
Big Bear growled her fiercest growl. Middle 
Bear made a dignigied rumbling noise, and 
Tiny Bear cried again. The Granger listened 
to their complaints, cleared his throat, 
whislled for a moment, and then handed 
Ihem a well-worn document. 

"I didn't write this," he assured Ihem, 
"but your Forest Handbook stales plainly 
that you will be charged Tot at least forty 
bowls of grits a monlh whether you eat 
them or nol, I do hale to charge you for 
food you haven't eaten - but il'sjust our

Then we'll cut our own corners by not 
paying any other bear to be fixing out 
food. Any way, we might as well be gel- 
ting some use oui of the lillle cooking den 

And so It was ihat the three bears ale 
happily and heallhlully for many days. 
But al the lime of Ihe new moon ihey each 
found a note in their hollow tree at the 
entrance of ihe big cave where Ihey dwelled. 

"You have been charged for forty bowls

HOW often, ,avj^ou^rn^.ec^ed^ou.elf upon. e- 

Bui you end up that you were really hungry 
and a crispy .ostado seemed much more mvitmg than the lib- 
raiy. that teachers don't really get rolling for a couple weeks 
so why study when it isn't absolutely necessary, and that once 
you get started talking-well, you know. 

Or perhaps your New Years "irresolutions" bipassed 
scholastic aspirations and hit on areas such as your social life 
or your relationship with God. 

I've gone through experiences similar to these and have 
been tempted to never say I'll do anything, thus eliminating 
any chance of failure. But after taking another look at New 
Year's resolutions. I think you'll agree with me that they can 
serve a wortliwhile purpose if approached in a realistic and 
practical manner. 

Remember, the person who never tries to make any chang- 
es won't change, and if goals are never set they will never be 
reached. The first step is to make goals that are feasible to reach. 
For instance, rather than saying you're going to lose 50 pounds, 
it might be better to tackle your weight problem five pounds 
at a time. ]umpi,ig from a 2.0 to a 4.0 is great but highly im- 

Secondly, its a lot easier to reach short term goals rather 
than long term ones. Although the new year is a time for re- 
flection and introspection, "new day" goals are the ones which 
bring about true success and self satisfaction. Failure need 
last no longer than a day if the next morning you can start out 
again with a fresh slate. 

Finally, do-it-yourself determination might raise your 
GPA, but the only way to become a more worthwhile person 
is through submission to God and time spent daily in Bible 
study and prayer to establish a meaningful relationship with 

Smooth Move 

Kudos to Mr. Grange for showing his willingness to cut 
corners in the fight against the spiraling food costs by initiating 
self service in the cafeteria line. There are a few drawbacks 
such as slower moving line which will hopefully improve when 
students get used to the new system, but overall 1 think it 
was a successful move. The cost of the servings hasn't gone 
down, but if I can get another spoon-full of black-eyed peas 
for the same cost by serving myself, I'm all for it.

IS one of the certainties of life which we

Accent Editor Interviews 
Actor Jack Thomas • 

Saturday night, January 1 0, Jack Thomas 
gave a rendition of Mark Twain. This young 
actor ot 34 graplucally portrayed the aged 
Twain with his slow-moving gestures and 
cracked voice. Included in the program were 
excerps from "Huckleberry Finn" and sev- 
eral of Twain's candid and forthright opin- 
ions on life and living. 

After the program the Accent conducted 
an interview with Mr. Thomas. The quest- 
ions will be printed in bold type and the 
answers in regular type.

No, not in the least bit. I was absolutely

Christmas Holidays in the village of Uitkiik in 
Surmam. South America. This is the first 
time that such an evangelistic effort has been 
held among the Hindu population of Surina 

Twenty-one persons out of the one hundred 
adults that attended the meetings made their 
decision to continue studying the truth in a 
special Bible class. This mission project was 
financed by several churches in tne United 
Slates and by various individuals. 

Lester Keizer, Sheila Keller, and Mike 
and Karen Porter left Collegedale, Tennessee 
for Surinam in a Piper Cherokee to hold the 
(wo-week evangelistic series. After 21 hours 
of flying they landed at Paramaribo, the ca- 
pital of Surinam. On hand to greet them 
was the president of the Surinam Mission, 
L. E. Keizer. 

Surinam, formally called Dutch Gui- 
ana, gained its independence from the Ne- 
therlands on November 25, 1975 and re- 
cently became the newest member of the 
United Nations. It is a country of various 
ethnic groups from Africa, India, Indon- 
esia and Holland and lies on the north- 
eastern coast of South America between 
Guiana and French Guiana. 

Meetings were held nightly in a palch- 

they said in "Sranang Tongo," the local 
language. A small hut was built nearby It

held in his home every week. 

As with any evangelistic outreach pro- 
gram, the devil tried Tiis best to keep people 
from coming and this series of meetings 
was no exception. The bus that was being 
hired to take the villagers to the meetings 
suddenly stopped coming. Another bus 
was hired, but after a few niglits the dri- 
ver refused to take the interested villag- 
ers. Il was later learned that the bus dri- 
vers in the area had agreed among them- 
selves not to take any more people be- 
cause it was a Christian meeting. 

In spite of all the difficulties including 
power failure during the last night of the 
meetines, once again the power of God 
triumphed over evil. Land is now being 
cleared for a church.

Educational Testing Service

Educational Testing Service (ETS) re 
ports several major changes in two national 
testing programs whose scores are used as 
part ot the admissions process in many of the 
nation s graduate schools. 

Both programs, the newly-titled Graduate 
Management Admission Test (GMAT) and 
the Graduate Record Examinations{GRE), 
together test more than 400,000 prospect 
graduate students every year.

simplify the test-taking process by making

Sex Stereotypes 

Auto Mechanics Class 

You run across these statements wherever you go They 
are tossed around like ping-pong balls in both dormitones 
Srown back and forth in Lated dinner-table conversat ons 
between pseudo-women's libbers and male chauvinists and 
without them any comedian's repertoire would fall Hat. I m 
talking about sex stereotypes and generalizations, f or m- 
stance-"If you want the whole world to know somethmg 
tell it to a woman first and they will know. If someone 
dented your fender in the parking lot it had to have been 
a woman driver. The extent of a woman's knowledge about 
a car is that the key fits in the ignition, and sometimes she 
can't remember whether to use tlie key with the round or 
the square head." . , 

Or on the other side of the fence-"Any man who spends 
time in the kitchen other than the time required to eat is a 
little bit fazed. Big boys don't cry and a he-man will have 
emotions of steel. When it comes to fixing cars men know 
all about it or if they don't they can learn with minimal 
effort-for after all they're men." 

The sad fact about stereotypes is that often they are only 
a shallow fascade of half-truths. This week I'd like to con- 
cern myself with a sex stereotype affecting the scholastic 
program of a number of students here on the SMC campus. 
Perhaps the majority of mechanics are men but this doesn't 
mean that the majority of men are mechanical. 

The only tnily introductive class in auto mechanics on 
tliis campus is only open for women, thus keeping a large 
number of non-mechanical men who would like to know 
something about cars from gaining this very fundamental 
and important knowledge. 

"Now wait a minute. ' you say. "There is too a class 
for men. It's called Automotive Fundamentals." Sure th- 
ere's a class, but it also happens to be notorious for lowering 
your GPA taking hours of study time, and being one big 
headache for the person not really interested in an in-depth 
knowledge of auto mechanics. 

Last semester the average GPA for Automotive Funda- 
mentals was 2.34 as opposed to a 2.77 GPA for the whole 
school's average. This isn't so bad. but there were only nine 
students in the class and there was also one withdrawal right 
before the semester test and one incomplete which weren t 
included in the average 

Another contributing factor which keeps the student who 
feels he needs to know something about cars but who isn't 
interested in mechanics is the fact that for this class it is re- 
quired to buy or obtain in some way or another between S 1 50 
and S200 worth of tools. 

I'm not suggesting that the Fundamentals class needs to 
be watered down. If I were an industrial arts major or fas- 
cinated with cars, I wouldn't want to take a rinky-dink course. 
I would want to get my money's worth, and if 1 didn't already 
have a set of tools, I'd be happy for a chance to get some. 
On the other hand there is a large number of male stu- 
dents who never will want to rebuild an engine, do a valve 
job, or understand the car's electrical system. All they want 
is enough knowledge to keep from getting gypped when they 
go to a mechanic. They'd like to be able to do a tune-up 
and other minor repaid and would appreciate knowing en- 
ough to carry on an intelligent conversation about cars with 
their friends. 

A two-hour class which fulfills all of these requirements 
is offered but it's called Automotive Survey for Women 
rather than just plain Automotive Survey. I consider this 
a prime case of sex descrimination or at least a bad over- 
siglit. For the girls who know nothing about cars it isn't 
really a serious handicap, because this is what society ex- 
pects, but for the male who doesn't even know how to ch- 
ange the oil It's a completely different story. He is respon- 
sible for the upkeep and maintenance of the car and mech- 
anics are more than willing to drain his pocketbook. 

Iherefore 1 strongly recommend that the Industrial Arts 
department seriously consider either opening up another 
Automotive Survey class or else open up the class they have

it's how you play the game."

of you who believe sports and competition 
should be eliminated from SDA schools are

Gordon Oonesliey 


1 jiisl liappened to be looking over my roommate's shoulder as lie 
was writing tliis weeic's editorial for the Accent, and what 1 saw made 
me shake my head in amazement. Maybe he had just gotten engaged, 
but it's hard to believe that in just a few months' time he could'have' 
been won over to tlie "camp with the curves" ( tliey always are de- 
ceiving) and betray his true friends in Talge Hall. 

For those of my friends in Talge who didn't catch the not-loo- 
subtle inference in 'Vingling's editorial, its major thesis is that llie 
men in Talge Hall are a bunch of chickens, and that's v.'hv not too 
many girls are getting asked out around here. 

Going even further, Yingling's editorial asserts that the females 
on this campus are to be commended for their great courage in tak- 
ing an initiative which the male population is too cowardly to make. 
I resent such a rash editorial, an editorial based upon anything but 

Now I am going to refute his argument point by point, that is- 
if you can call it an argument. Take away the sentimentality and 
exaggerated generalities, and I am sure that you will be able to see 
that the only truth to be found within his pseudo^editorial is con- 
tained within its first sentence. 

The main weakness in my roommate's editorial is the fact that lie 
assumes that there is equal attraction between the two sexes here at 
SMC, and therefore equal motivation for dating. Obviously, this is 
not the case! The massive numbers of girls tying up the telephone 
lines in order to secure a date for the banquet this year, in contrast 
to the lackadaisical "who cares" approach of the guys last ye,ir. dem- 
onstrates that somewhere along the line the two sexes have acquired 
different motivations in seeking out a date. In the case of tlie girls 
here at SMC, they obviously feel the need to date a great deal more 
than the guys do. 

I would like to suggest that there are perhaps three reasons, great 
courage not being one of them, why SMC co^;ds took such an aggres- 
sive "ask em out" stance towards the banquet this ye; 
First of all, a banquet really isn't that much differe 
any other date, for he has the option of asking a girl c 
wants to. For the girl, however, the banquet is that o 
that comes along every two years when she has the opportunily lo 
ask oul the guy of her dreams. Under such circumstances, it's my 
opinion that a airl would be more highly motivated to get on IheoW 

Secondly, in our society a guy that isn't married - even in his ale 
20's ~ is often considered a cool, swinging bachelor who is just play- 
ing the field and enjoying every minute of it. But the female who 
gels through college and doesn't snag a man is stigmatized in a very 
ncualive, old-maid type manner. Parents, relatives, and friends keep 
asking the question, "I wonder what was wrong with her thai she 
couldn't gel a man?" Obviously this stigmatization of the single le- 
iiiale leads to a more intense motivation to establish a permaneni, 
interpersonal relationship, thus resulting in a greater need to dale ana J 

a guy than

will be a great asset to the department. 

"It is considered in most musical

which operate on electrical impulses,

The General Conference has asked 
Dr. Marvin Robertson, chairman of the 
SMC Music Depar 

r that will be making plans to dev- 

sof n 

n SDA ele- 

books and materials for u 
mentary schools. 

In 1972 Dr. Robertson wrote to the 
GC suggesting thai the current textbooks 
being used by the elementary schools 
were in need of revision. He also said 
that the books used by the upper grades 
were going out of pririt and asked the 
GC to study this. 

Miss Ethel Young. General Confer- 
ence Elementary Education Supervisor, 
replied that the education department 
was aware of these problems and that 
the needs would be discussed at ihe 
nexi meeting of ihe textbook comm- 
ittee. Miss Young asked Dr. Robertson 
ro write a letter directly to the com- 
mittee dealing wilh the books. 

In January 1974 a special commiliee 
was called by ihe GC to evaluate the 
current books being used by SDA schools 
and suggest to the GC on changes ihal 
needed lo be made.

In the editorial "Sex Stereotypes and Auto Mechanics Class," 
the need for a survey class in maintenance and repairs for men 
as well, as women was stressed. Dr. Janzen of the Industrial Arts 
Department felt that there were several drawbacks in having a 
2-hour survey class for men, but he did agree to give a hst of the 
areas that could be realistically covered. Here is the list: 

1, Ihirory of engine operation 

2. engine and chasis lubrication 

3 cooling system problems 

4 minor ignition system servicing 
5, tires-wheel alignment symptoms 

<i. break system, operation and service 

7, how to purchase an automobile - dealer jargon 

If you would seriously consider taking a 2-hour survey class in 
auto mechanics that would apply for a general education require- 
ment but not toward an industnal arts major, please tear off the 
tollowmg poll and place it in the box at the desk in Talge Hall

The H\s\ory Of Valenfines 

nappy Vaieniines Day! You may won- 
der how this day for sweethearts got started 
Before 496 the Romans had a festival every 
year called Lupercalia. Men would chance 
geitme their dream girl by picking names 
out of a hat. Then the partners exchanged 
gifts as a sign of affection. They usually 
enjoyed one another's company for a long 
lime after the festival. Many of these court- 
ships ended in marriage. 

After Christianity spread, churchmen 
tried to give Christian meaning to the pagan 
festival. In 496 Pope Gelasius changed the 
Lupercalia festival of February 15 to SainI 
Valentine's Day on February 14. However, 
the sentimental meaning of the old festival 

Who is St.' Valentine? There are two 
different men, and it is not clear which 
one the day was named after. One was a 
priest who lived in Rome during the 20O's 
under Emperor Claudius II. He was tailed 
by the Romans for aiding persecuted thrisi- 
ians. Tradition has it thai he cured his jail- 
keeper's daughter of blindness. About A.D. 
270 the Romans beheaded him on Palaiine 

, Christians named a 

Rome, Porlo Valent...,, u..^. ^^. -u,^...-,^. 
The name was changed later to Porlo de! 

Another Si. Valentine was a bishop ot 
Inleramna about 60 miles from Rome He 
was persecuted for converting a Roman 
faniify to Christianity. He was beheaded in 
Rome about A.D. 273. 

The Middle Ages brouj 

Around 1446 England recognized Val 
entine's Day. A man would get his spec 
iai Valentine by picking the girl's name c 
of a vase. This practice'conlinued into tne 
1700's when the men started wearing their 
girl's name on their sleeve. This is where 
the saying "He wears his heart on his 
sleeve, ' came from. 

Valentine's Day used to be a day for 


April Fool 

Dr. Knitlel doesn't know the difference 
between Valentine's Day and April Fool s 
Day. At least one Valentine s Day he felt 

Frank', (or Frankie as his female college 
classmates whistfully whispered when they 
thought of him) could not decide which of 
his two favorite ladies should receive his 
tender regards on Valentines Day. To side- 
slep the issue he bought two touching Val- 
entine cards, wrote a very sentimental note 
in each, addressed one envelope to Miss 
Charming and one to Miss Wonderful, drop- 
ped the Valentines into the envelopes, mail- 
ed Ihem and waited to see which would an- 
swer him most lovingly. 

A week later white the great lover was

but all Willi Ihe same deep-fell emolion. and others anonymously slipped 
their literary works under the door. „ , ,. . ,i i,vh,rHio 

I-m sorry Uial we weren't able lo prim all of Ihe material. It s hard to 
decide what should be included in an issue such as Ihis and wh"'.*""^ ^e 
left out. Some of those decisions weie based on when the material was suo- 
nulled or on the space left lo fill in specific categories, so if your poem or 
sloiy wasn't pubhshed, it doesn't mean it wasii't any good. 

As the sayineeoes, "All's fair in love and war, and just like war, 
love leaves its wounds Often the person who has been hurt or who is 
fnisttated in his or her attempts at finding that special peison is more 
likely to sit down and express his feelings on paper than is the person who 
has found an experience of muhjal love. Since this is the case, we have 
more sad than happy material. But for all you lonely hearts-cheer up. 
Ask the Francises OT Ihe Cummings and they'll tell you that love really does 
mean happiness rather dian misery. 

Hopefully there is enough variety in this paper so that eveiyone can 
find something pleasing and expressive of their feelings. Maybe some ol 
the humorous pieces will seem stupid rathei than funny and the serious 
stories and poetry trite and overly sentimental, but at least give us the 
credit for ttying to please you. For you news buffs, there will be a paper 
next week strictly devoted to the facts and nothing but the facts.

the cafeteria line are any indication, the reaction to the Point-Counterpoint

MAe. U. Beautiful Just Amoteurs Talge SloppineJ 

1 am a quilt nut. I make quilts. I. like to go to the quilt display 
at Norihgate and browse through quilt books when ever I get the 
chance. By looking at a quilt, you realize it is diversity that makes 
it beautiful-the mulli-colored and multi-patterned material blend- 
ing into a beautiful work of art. 

We look back, maybe near, maybe far, at the mistakes we have 
committed as if tliey were flaws in our lives. We regret the past 
and fear the future. Okay, maybe we have done some stupid things- 
breaking promises, making fools of ourselves, hurting someone 
needlessly-but it's over. The wrong things go right alongside all the 
right things we've done. We must be grateful for all we've been 
tlirough for it's why we are what we are now. Diversity is what 
makes us interesting, yes. beautiful people. It's not a waste of time. 

Dorothy Thompson wrote: "And only when we are no longer 
afraid, do we begin to live in every experience, painful or joyous; 
to live in gratitude for every moment, to live abundantly." 

I entourage you. especially now that "spring has sprung" (prob- 
ably a talse alarm), to add some diversity to your schedule. Witness 
a sunrise or sunset. Go on a wild-goose chase. Start a hobby or a 
habit. Just simply do something you wouldn't normally do. or don't 
have time for. 

For the pieces, tjie crazy and sensible moments, the right and 
wrong decisions you've made todayto fit, ask Jesus to make your 
life a beautiful quilt.

it as a punishment? 

Yes, but as an authentic individual he 
will not love merely to assume an unwar- 
ranted interference in the other's life. You 
see you are called upon to exercise much 
self-constraint in not constraining others. 

But what if 1 don't like the way the 
other person is? 

Though your impulses toward the other 
person may be negative, as a true lover you 
will move forth in acceptance of the other's 
essential worth as a being in the process of 
becoming in the presence of God, You 
dare not label unclean what God has de- 
clared clean! 

Does Ihis acceptance you speak of mean 
that I must condone the other s behavior? 

No indeed. It merely means that you 
base your concern and care for him on the 
fact of his infinite worth before God 
But the way you talk, love seems all

!■-». icdlly. for love requires both your 
self-understanding and your self-evaluat- 
ion. For example, to express love for the 
poor does not mean that you ought only 
to give alms. The deepest love is expressed 
by your effort to know yourself, which in 
turn means to know God. Only then are 
you prepared fully to understand and ac- 
cept your fellow man. 

Isn't it a sign of weakness to let your- 
rlf express tender, positive feelings? 

On the contrary, true love is bound up 
both with community and - 

what you possess is not likely love. 

What does love have to do with Iruth? 

Briefly, the power of love communicated 
originates in truth, which, of course require; 
a community of two. Your ability to love 
permits you to touch reality, especially that

Realizing thai the students of SMC are 
tired of liigli -sounding words and no corres-

pose for your consideration and vole tiie 
following purposeful objective: to provide 
through the office of vice-president, rel- 



Responsibilities of ihe vice-president

6. The use of meaningful surveys so^om 
have a chance to submit ideas. 

After the SA has provided for the 
students' needs and pleasures, that same 
spirit can and should be manifested in the 
surrounding community. For instance, 
in time of natural calamities, or needy 
families, tlie SA can play a concerned 
role in the reshaping of these situations. 

But these efforts aren't made possible 
by one person. It lakes a united drive 
of people who are concerned and believe 
that someiliing can happen. I believe. 
All I can honestly pledge to you is my 
sincerity in a willingness to work con- 
sistently harder to bring about a relevant 
change today. 

Ken Rogers 

Andy McDonald Running 
For U President 


You are my main concern.' As a can- 
didate for the SA president, I can see the 
necessity and benefit of planning social 
programs for you. religious programs for 
you, of organizing a clear and well structur- 
ed student government for you, and of 
keeping the channels of communication 
open to you. If elected I not only will 
"'~'e to carry these things out but will a 
strive lo work on other important 
s of student life. 

)ne area 1 feel is important is the ques- 
., "Are you getting your money's worth 
n tlie SA?" It is your money and you 
ild have a voice in the quality of ed- 
lion you are receiving at today's higli 
es. This is only one of the areas I would 
to see us work on; another would be 
e student initiated programs where 
...„.e students can become involved by 
participating in the SA. 

Because of my past experience in academy 
SA, here at SMC as senator, and vicepresident 
because of my understanding and friendship 
with the administration, antfbecause I 
beheve m SMC and what it stands for, I 
beheve I can serve YOU well as SA president. 
Toeelher we can have one of the happiest 
Id successful school years that YOU. the 

The 1976 basketball season drew to an 
anti-climatic finish. Halvcrsen had built up 
such a big lead that none of the games n ' 

whether they came to the game or not. Last 
Sunday Wliite's team had only three players 
show up, and Holland won on a forfeit. 
In the second game Halversen's team 
(who already had the championship sewn 
up) got four players out for the game a- 

giinst Schultz. Haiversen, Thomas, and 
ulan were not able to make it. Exciting 
game right? Schultz won. Surprise! 

The Dest game of the year took place 
last Monday night. Holland and Schultz 
squared off for their last big show down. 
In previous games against each other Schultz 
won the first and Holland the second. 

Holland jumped off to a substantial lead 
and looked like the team everybody thought

Formal/zee/ Nonconformity ? 

Walking back to the dorm after a week of prayer '^'^^'PjJ ' JTv^.i, 
niented to a friend on how much 1 was enjoying the meetings. Yeah, 
uley are good," he replied, "But he talks about the same every 

' Another friend added his two cents, then, "Of course he talks 
;ibout rlie same thing. There is only one thmg that counts and that s 
ii relationship with God." . c i- 

Tlie question I'd Hke to ask is have we exchanged one set ot cii- 
clies for another one set of pat answers for another, a religion of 
lormaiiiy and works for a religion of righteousness by faith which 
has fuxome formahzed in its nonconformity Do many of us now toss 
around tlie word lelationsliip without really understandmg the mean- 
ing of Ihc word in the same way that the old stand-byes of justificat- 
ion, sanctitication. and propitiation used to be tossed around? 

I hope this isn't the case, but sometimes I'm afraid it is. The mes- 
sage that Jere Webb emphasized and re-emphasized in his week of 
prayer talks is the key to Christianity and salvation. Like my one 
friend said, a relationship with God is the only thing that counts. A 
personalized devotional life is the only way to gain this relationship. 
But if you don't want to accept the yoke that comes along with the ^ 
peace, if you don't want to be made willing to be willing, if you don't 
want God to become an integral part of your life, then even your hour 
,1 day spent in contemplative meditation will become another form, an- 
nllier means of working your way to heaven. 

On the other hand, if you want the yoke that results in peace, if you 
wjnt (o be made willing to be made willing, if you want God to becomt 
an integral part ol your life, then a relationship with God will not just 
W J set of words but an experience, and the time you spend with God 
will not be just another thing you have to do but the most enjoyable 
lime of your day. „ ,,. ..

What Happened To Self Service 

Dear Editor, 

Well, ii looks as Iliougli it is back lo ilie

but a short-lived attempt lo "'save us all a 
lillle money by keeping prices down." Not 
that anyone has officially said il is over, but 
then why is there someone standing at the 
end of the deck nearly every lime I go to 
serve myself who either serves me, or tells 
nie how full I should (or should not) fill my 
lillle bowl? In the article on the front page 
of the January 15 issue,! quote: "Grange

Mr, Gebert has been in other narrow 

scrapes besides this one. Probably one of 

Ihe closest happened on an earlier (rip to 

Bimini when a twenty-eight foot crissciaft 

power yacht he was piloting was almost 

demolished by a freigliter. 

"We were probably about ten miles east 
of Miami when the mishap occurred." said 
Mr. Gebert. "I was at the wheel and a 
friend of mine was acting as a look-out on 
deck. I saw some liglils off the starboard 
bow and asked him lo check them out. 
He investigated them and then came back 
where 1 was and lo|d me not to worry 
halever it is," he said, 'it's traveling in llie 
opposite direction.' But not more than five 
utes later, he stuck his head in where 
IS and yelled, 'You're on a collision 
rsewitha 1300-fool freighler.' 
"Well, 1 put the helm down to port and 
swung the boat as far left as she would go," 
related Mr. Gebert. "Just as 1 did, this huge 
freigliter skimmed by riglil off our star- 
board bow, barely missing us. I'm telling 
you, I was scared to death! Everyone elsu 
was below sleeping and wlicn I made tlie vm- 
lent turn, they all came up on deck lo sfi-' 
what was wrong. I don't think any of us 
slept much the rest of th^i night." 

When asked it "little incidents" hkf iln 
aforc-mentioncd made sailing a riskier 
sport llian others, Mr. Gebert stales, "' 
there will always be risks involved in spi >: ■

The CCC is licensed as a day care cen- 
■, not as a nursery school or a kinder- 
garten. Two of the requiremenis involved 
in getting a license are that the children be 
from ages 3 - 6 and lhat there only be so 
many children for a given amount of space 

lime. For the CCC Ihe number is 
18 children. 

Its operation schedule is planned, bul 
structured and flexible. Worship conies 
9 a,m. and lunch at noon with nap time 
immediately -following. These are the only 
scheduled activities. If the activity for Ihe 
day is painting, the teacher may bring out 
the art supplies at 10 and leave them out 
for two hours, but the children aren't forced 
to participate in the activity if they don't 
wani to. The teachers try lo make the 
activities interesting and stimulating so Ihe 
children will want to lake part. 

Debbie Worley, a 1975 graduate of SMC 
itli a BS in Home Economics, is Ihe head 
teacher at CCC. One of her responsibilities 
is lo plan outings and activities for ihe 
children. Al least once every two weeks a 
field trip is planned. Sometimes a special 
guesi is brouglit to (he CCC to speak to the 
children about some community service.

Mrs. Runyan has not finished her studies 
in behavioral science, but she expressed the 
opinion that the reason SMC doesrv't require 
the deans lo have a degree is that education 
IS not the most basic quality of a good dean 
Her experience has shown that ability to or- 
ganize, build up a favorable rapport with 
the girls, deal fairly, make judgements, and 
be consislent, exceed education as important 
qualities for a dean lo cultivate. 

Consistency of disposition precedes all 
else in Mrs. Runyan's mind as a rule of life 
for a dean. Without a knowledge of what 
things will incense their "substitute mother" 
and what things will be gently passed over, 
a dorm can become a cage of unhappy and 
troublesome, sometimes even beastly, females 

Next year the Runyans will continue lo 
hvc in their present home until a larger dean's 
home which is in the planning stages is com- 
pleted. Another dean will join the SMC 
staff but no information isyel available as 

who that will be.

Soullierii Missionary College is faced witli

Pressing Issues Need Coverage 

• desk"of Professor Guken, a noted scholar and historian. "Woulcl 
you please come and give your sage wisdom to our dear students 
at Happy Valley," the voice at the other end said. 

Professor Guken scratched his nose, nipped through he cakndar 
on his desk, and then just like professors always do he cleared Ins 
throat and mumbled, "I suppose it could be arranged Alter all, 
he thought. I've heard of Happy Valley and schools like it belore, 
and I'd really like to see what they're like. Of course 1 m sure IJiat 
it really isn't all that different. After all schools are schools and 
students are students. 

Three months later a smiling man met Professor Guken at the 

I airport and whisked him "away from the trials and tribulations, 

I radicals and agitators, dopers and lovers, of the oilier side to the 

< friendly confines of Happy Valley." 
Ah, he thought to himself, maybe these people do have the 

snlntinn to tile ills of thc wotld, niaybc I have found Utopia or 

closest thing. No it can't be. After all schools are schools 
and students are students. 

O Professor Guken squirmed in his chair while the announcements 
were being made and went over in his mind the points he was going 

I to make. Finally the announcements were finished and he was 

' being introduced. He strode up to the podium and cracked his fav- 

Qoritejoke. A few students laughed weakly. Oh well you can't win 
them all. What he wanted to say was more important than a dumb 

I I I joke, anyway. 

1 — 1-1 After he'd been talking for 10 minutes tlie mortifying realizat- 
ion that no one was listening suddenly struck home. Students 
weren't just whispering, they were talking out loud. One fellow on 
the front row was snoring. The rustle of turning pages sounded 
hke a March wind storm, and occasionally a paper airplane drifted 
lazily past the eyes of the poor professor. He felt that a flock of 
chattering swallows would gain just as much from his speech as 
these students were. He wished he could sit down right then and 
call the whole thing off, but he always had had a martyr complex 
so he kept on talking, counting the minutes and seconds until he 
could escape those little monsters and shake off tliis nightmare in 
the confines of his motel room. Then to top everything, right when 
he was in the middle of liis concluding remarks one by one students 
began to get up and leave. He muttered something like. "I guess 
it's's time for this program to end." and sat down. When the 
students realized that he was through they showed their first spark 
of interest, clapping their fare-well. 

While everyone was stampeding out the door the smiUng man 
came up to Mr, Guken, "That was a fine speech you made, I'm 
sorry the students were a little disorderiy but students are stu- 
dents. By the way, if you'd like I'll take you on a tour of the cam- 
pus after we go up to the cafeteria to eat." 

"Uh, I think I'd like to go straight back to the motel. You know 
these lecture tours get quite tiring." Professor Guken wiped the 
perspiration off his brow and picked up his notes. Hmmph he 
thouglit, may not be the best speech maker in the worid, but I 
do think 1 deserved a little more common courtesy than 1 got here

re, how the boys feel a-

the boys. I would suggest to the Accent 
staff tliat we as a coLege need to devote 
some time to pressing issues which will 
affect not only Southern Missionary Col- 
lege, but the community as a whole. One 
situation which is foremost in my mind 
(his evening is the decision to sell the col- 
lege industries. 

e that r 

of the students 

that attend lius ii 

of the n 

lege officials ti 

T made by col- 
existing indusl- 
' In a discussion led by Mr. Jan Rush- 
ing of the Business Administration Depart- 
ment, the point was made, and well taken 
that the college over the years has realized 
no profit from the operation of their in- 
dustires, and to continue in this situation 
would mean disaster for not only the in- 
dustries themselves, but the college and 
community as well. It appears that slowly 
but surely the newly formulated dream of 
a non-industrialized Southern Missionary 
College will become a reality. 

When the industries are finally sold. 
many privileges wliich we now enjoy could 
easily be taken from us. There are several 
aspects which should be looked into from 
tlie standpoint of future activity in the 
Happy Valley which we now know. 

First of all. even though students would 
be the most desirable workers, due to lo- 
cation, morals, etc., privately owned indust- 
ries would be under no obligation to employ 
them, and in fact, could bargain for workers 

efficiency. Students now Deneniin f " 
college industries would becomueiinS 
the unemployed of this area^ ^*" 

Secondly, even though competitivebu, 
mess practices in the Collegedale ateaj 
enhance the quality and service of ih.!,, 
sent industries, it would not be long J 
Friday evenmg and Saturday ^omZl 
the interest of the pubUc of cours.S 

be mtroduced. The retailers' doorsS 
swing open on the Sabbath, or should «■ 
say Saturday? 

Lastly, even though increased busirej 
would profit the area to a great degree 
and enlarge it in the future, an influx of L 
unhealthful food and drink would bs onhl 
a stone's throw . Perhaps this is the mori 
modern image we wish to serve andsprej 
to the corners of the earth, 

Some feel the solution to the problem 

1 would only result ii , 

latory agreement, thus discrimination 
would prevail. Perhaps we could sell w 
the condition of no Friday evening otSjtl 
urday sales, but once again with the prolJ 
lem of our unprofitable industriesoi ' 
the way, we would only be slapped with I 
a suit reading on its face, "Unreasonabli | 
Restraint of Trade." 

The industries have made Soutfiern 
Missionary College a prosperous entity 
and have provided a healthy future for 
the community as well as the college it- 
self. Why should we alter a working, wQ 
formulated plan, unless we have somt 
thing more suitable to put in its place? 

Sincerely yours.

Brinkley Addresses Students 


lirinkley gave example after example 
of the inefficiency Uiat conies hand in 
hand with a large bureaucracy. For in- 
stance, he said that in the last several 
years the number of farmers in Ihe Un- 
ited States has decreased but that the 
staff of the US Department of Agricul- 
ture has increased lOO'i'- and the budget 
iOOTo, When the US printing office 
printed the Nixon transcripts they sold 
lliem for over S 1 1 and right after that 
when two private publishing houses 
came out wilh the same material they 
sold it for less than S3. "Did you ever 
wonder wlui j Chev>' would cost." asked 
lirinkley, "it iIk' government made it?' 

Alter his slum [jlk the floor was op- 
ened for questions. AHhougli most of 
the questions concerned politics, occas- 
ionally the personal clement slipped in. 
"Mr. Brinkley," one smiling woman asked, 
"when are you and Barbara Wallers going 

When the subject of detente came up 

took a very pragmatic approach, say- 
ing that trust is not a necessary element, 
and that all detente means is an attempt 
lo have a somewhat better relationship. 
"Only an idiot would trust the Russians." 
However, he added that the alternatives 

trying to get along with the Russians 

jren'i that good. 

At the end of the questioning one 
member in the audience whispered that 
she felt like standing up and saying thank 
you Mr. President. And despite recenl 
attacks against the media many in the 
audience accepted his opinions wilh the 
same awe they would have if the Presi- 
dent were speaking. "I couldn't believe 
1 was actually standing there talking to 
a man who knows kings and presidents, 
a man who millions of Americans have 
watched every night on television " one 
SMC student said. 

Brinkley wasn't all that awed with the 
audience, though. He said that he didn't 
care what they did while he was talking 
because nothing bothered him, "1 talk 
to people every niglit," he chuckled, 
■ and who knows what ihey'ie doing."

But some oppose this reasoning with 
Ihe belief ihal "a large percenlage of 
those baptized won't stay in the church." 
Such negative thinking is repulsive to me. 
A pessimistic outlook exhibited by the 
laymen musl be awful discouraging lo 
men wlio are seeking to do the work of 
Ihe Lord in a inighly way. In Evangelism

encouragement possible. Lei them not

their brethren. We musl have a care for 
the Lord's workers who are opening Ihe

forts of our own brethren who are trying

Nineteen persons; one ornithology in- 
structor, Mr. Edgar Cnindset, his wife 
Valera, 13 current ornithology students, 
three former students, and one wife, pack- 
ed themselves and their luggage into two 
vans, (named) "La Paloma Blanca" and 
"Fly, Robin, Fly" and a luggage trailer, 
on March 3, 6:00 a.m. and headed to 
Florida for the annual ornithology field 
trip to see and experience new siglils and 
sounds (particularly birds!). 

The purpose of tlie trip, counted as 
tab time, is to acquaint the students with 
birds in their natural ecological zones, 
and lo observe birds in a variety of habi- 
tats. Florida is an excellent location for 
this intention: some birds are wintering 
there this time of year, birds may be ob- 
served along the coast and the gulf, and 
the southern tip of Florida is the only 
tropical zone In the continental USA. 

Birding was conducted at Payne's 
Prairie, Cape Canaveral, Loxalialcliee 
Wildlife Sanctuary, Everglades National 
Park, Greynold's Park, Corkscrew Swamp 
Sanctuary, with many stops in between. 

Highlights of the trip included: 

1. Spotting and photographing the 
short-tailed hawk at a very short distance, 

Aniiinga Trail, 

2. Observing the nesting yellow-crown- 
ed night heron al Corkscrew Swamp Sane- 

3. Seeing a reddish egret at Flamingo 
pacing back and forth. 

Flushing out fulvous tree ducks at 

5, A tremendous view of "real" scarlet 
ibis with five hybrids surrounding it, rang- 
ing in color from hght pink to orange sal- 
mon, at Greynold's Park, 

6, Seeinglotsof wood stork nests al 
Corkscrew Swamp, wliile many young 
were vocalizing. 

e birds al Cape 

9. Good view? of roseate spponbills 
and skimmers at Flamingo. 

10, Mottled ducks and shovelers at 
Nine-Mile Pond. 

The group worked very diligently, 
rising between 4:00-6:00 a.m. However. 
the diligence payed off because an all 

record of seeing 148 birds was set. 
Although the class was "in lab" for most 
of their spring vacation, they managed 

fun besides birding; there- 
fore ^'kiUing two birds with one stone", 
A whole day was spent at Disney World 
evening at Parrel's Ice Cream Par- 
lor. There were picnic lunches, a few 

church members in Miami, Orlando and 
Tampa; ice figlits, much hilarity in the 
vans (since much time was spent in them) 
including Rook games, and talking on 
the CB, singing, leasing, and laughing. 

Arriving back at SMC on the evening 
of March 9 after travelling approximately 
2500 miles, sunburned, exhausted, tat- 
tered, torn and delirious, all that (most

An Ode To Spring Fever 

It's one of those sunny Collegedaie days that's so beautiful 
you almost forget about all the rainy ones. Frisbees are float- 
ing lazily across the campus, the dorm lobby is full of students 
wearing cut-offs and T-shirts, and the tennis courts look so in- 
viting I can almost feel the ectasy of an ace or a put-away over- 
head. But can I take advantage of this fine weather, of the 
fresh air and sunshine, of the vibrance of the budding spring- 
no! Because, you see, I have to write the editorial for the 

However, for some strange reason nothing seems to click. 
Right now I could care less about the economics behind the 
pant suit questions or fiscal responsibility vs. quality education. 
and I can't come up with more than one or two sentences on 
the old stand-byes of moral questions like the affects of rock 
music or the efficacy of theater attendance. 

But there is one subject 1 can write on-and that's spring 
fever (or should 1 say pre-summer fever). This disease has several 
symptoms which even those not versed in the medical or psycho- 
logical fields can detect. Surprisingly, it first begins its insidious 
work on a miserably rainy day. (At least this is the way it 
works in my case.) You blame all of your woes on the lousy 
weather, begin feeling sorry for yourself, and then start ration- 
alizing that no matter how many term papers you have due or 
how many tests you have to study for, you're going to treat 
yourself the first nice day that comes around. This is all right 
as long as there aren't any nice days, but woe be unto your 
grade s when a ll of asudden there is a streak of good weather. 

Another symptom is a general feeling of restlessness. You 
find yourself gazing out the window during classes, and thouglits 
of romance and recreation win out over the causes of the great 
depression or the principles of the quantum theory. 

This disease also spreads faster than a juicy rumor. For in- 
stance, take this hypothetical situation. Bob comes back to the 
room after class and plops his books on the bed. "How 'bout 
a good game of tennis," he asks his roommate Jim 

"I've got to go to class." Jim answers. But in almost the 
same breath he mutters that if he went to class he'd probably 
sleep. Besides he really did need some exercise. After plavine 
tennis all afternoon Jim isn't in the mood to study, so he calls 
up his girifnend and tells her that since a full moon comes only 
once a month, they should take advantage of it and go for a 
walk, 1 won't continue this illustration any further, for i tliink 
you ve got the pomt. 

You can live with spring fever and still be a college student 
t you keep its worst symptom under control-procrastination'

Credit Where Credit Is Due 

Dear Editor: 

In this letter I would like to attempt 
to give some credit where credit is due. 
I won't begin to try to mention everyone 
that should be mentioned, so if I've left 
you out, you can thank your lucky stars. 

* First, an honorable mention for Ms. 
Frances Atidrews, Mr. Hannum, and Gary 
Eldridge for their hard work and planning 
that made the recent Communications 
field trip possible. 

* The Smooth Move Award goes to 
Mr. Grange, of cafeteria fame, who suc- 
ceeded in letting a truckload of Steak-0's 
spoil in the freezer. 

* Dr. Marvin Roberlson deserves acknowl- 
edgment for his part in making the Academy 
Music Festival a real success. All the Music 
Department people share in this honor. 

* Congratulations, Bart Willrulh, on being 
appointed Religious Vice-president for the 
76-77 school year. 

* A note of attention goes to Bruce 
Yingling for publishing a school paper on 
schedule every week of this year. 

* Special mention goes to Dean Evans, 
who every year tries to outdo himself in 
thinking up irrational solutions to the 
room reservation fiasco. This year he's 
done it again! 

* Dr. Norman Peek and liis hard-working 
staff deserve a belated note of appreciation 
for their part in making the programs on 
this campus go as smoothly as possible. 

* Thanks to Ole Kristensen for his leader- 
ship and interest in his students and his knowl- 
edge of photography. Administration take 
notice: We Want Him To Stay!!

kdventism And America 
Theme For Weekend Series 

; subject of Adventism and America 
iheme for a special weekend series 
SfGiing llie bicentennial, starting April 
thapel. continuing for Friday night 
«i and both church services, and con- 
ijig Willi a meeting at 3:00 Sabbath 
lOon this subject will be approached 
several different angles. 
,1, W. H, Beaven. Dean of Kettering 
kge of Medical Arts will speak for 
■ ipel and vesper programs. He brings 
i outlook on the work of the church 
iubjecl. Because of his experience 
ikinist ration, education, temperance, 
Imsdical work he has had much op- 
liinily to see Ihe effects of Adventism 
te American way of life and will dis- 
illiese effects. 

3iletR. R. Hegstad, editor oi Libert)' 
aJne, approaches the subject of the 
■:u of Adventism of America from the 
of llie preservation of the Adventist 
Ihe face of a democracy, 
lies, Ihe Sabbath, and the 

desire to conduct an educational system 
independently of government intervcnlion, 
for example, fill much of his lime as ed- 
itor of a magazine with the purpose of 
maintaining the freedoms of Americans, 
especially Adventist Americans by being 
a voice to Ihe thought leaders of the nat- 

br. Greenleaf, chairman of SMC's bi- 
centennial planning committee espressed 
the purpose of the entire bicentennial pro- 
gram on this campus as a probing of ihe 
overall meaning of the American experience 
rather than a meaningless and riotous cele- 
bralion. The series planned for Ihe week- 
end of April 8-10 is to continue this in- 
depth probing into an area which touches 
Adventist students perhaps more directly 
than any other area of lecture. An under- 
standing of Ihe effect of Adventist on 
America and how American Adventists 
differ from other Adventists because of 
the American experience is the purpose 
of these talks by Hegstad and Beaven.

covered were good, but that there were

Some ideas he suggested were relations

In previous years, Ihe seminars were 
held over one weekend; however. Mrs. 
Davis says. "You can't possibly cover 
everything in just a weekend. Thai's 
why they've run it oul into live chap-

that these chapels seemed lo be very

According to a survey of non-engaged 
students, future seminars should include 
the following subjects: Birth control,

agement, development of llie relation-

during the 1 840's and 50's, the time of

As an example, one hymn being sung, 
entitled 'Scatter Seeds of Kindness', tells 
the story of a mother who lost her temper 
and fatally injured her child when she 
was correcting her. In other words, the 
writer of the hymn was trying to show 
us that we shouldn't lose our temper." 

Other iivmns to be sung include "The

You Are The Unsung Heros 




You ;ire llic iinsunj; lieros ol' l ^ 

back and forth in dorm bull sessions or at the laundrymal some of you 
are usually at the top of the list. You not only have to obey the rules, 
but you're also supposed to enforce tliem. Your job never really ends. 
Somehow no matter how hard you try you seem to be one day behind, 
having to stay up late and get up early in the morning for last-mmute 
preparations. If you don't put these extra hours into your work-it 
shows and you get blamed lor incompetency. You're expected to be 
a walking encyclopedia and yet at the same time not be pedantic. Just 
knowing something isn't enough-you have to be able to explain it. 
You're expected to treat a most rude and obnoxious person as if he 
were your own son, and losing your temper is almost unforgivable. 
Finally, according to the national pay scale you're getting underpaid, 
and yet when offered a raise you voted to make it smaller because you 
wanted to do everything you could to fight rising costs. You are the 
teachers of the SMC campus, and I want you to know that 1 for one 
appreciate your hard work, your dedication, your sacrificing spirit. 

-Bruce Yingling 

Not Just Another Problem 

You'd expect to find this problem in small churches out in the 
middle of nowhere, or even in the middle of the cold realities and 
endless mazes of a large city-but loneliness on our campus which is 
so warm and friendly, where everyone walks around with smiles, 
where the opportunities for Christian fellowship are almost innum- 
erable-no way. But you're wrong. Loneliness is an even greater 
problem when someone is starving for meaningful companionship 
in the midst of plenty, because he then begans to think that if he 
were a worthwhile person he wouldn't be lonely. Shallow smiles 
and condescending hi's aren't the solution to this problem, but on 
the other hand genuine Christian friendliness can bring a dash of 
happiness into the day of someone who is down in the dumps. 

It's so easy on a college campus to spend all of your time with a 
select group of friends, because you feel comfortable in their pres- 
ence. You eat with these friends, talk with these friends, spend your 
free time with these friends; and the students who don't belong to 
a "group" withdraw into their void of seclusion and unhappiness. 

I suggest that you notice if someone is always eating in the cafe- 
teria by himself, and instead of looking for an empty table where 
you can eat with your friends you take the time to get acquainted 
with the "loner." You might just get pleasantly surprised, because 
otten the person who is shy and introspective has a certain amount 
ot depth that the extrovert jokester doesn't have. All this person 
needs is a little prodding, and he can be a fascinating individual. 

Now I'd like to address myself to the person who feels that if he 
were to drop off the face of the earth no one would notice let alone 
care. II may be a cliche, but it's true that the friendly person is the 
one who has friends. If you go out of your way to avoid people 
no one probably will notice or appreciate you. You may have a 
thousand reasons to go around with a scowl and you are probably 
a martyr, but feeling sorry for yourself won't help matters at all If 
you smile and have a cheerful word to say when you don't feel like 
It, I guarantee you that your feelings will change

1 Ik- southern ACCENT is piMilisli, 


Dear Editor, 


Somelhing lias been o 
since I ended up in the infirmary about a 
nionlli ago, and I feel il is about lime 
someone speaks out on tlie subject of 
this well-known place! 

First, they treat us like prisoners, at 
lunch lime and at niglit. They lock the 
doors on us as if we are going to escape 
or go to the other side of the infirmary 
to visit the "opposite sex." We are ma- 
ture, college students (hopefully), and 
should be trusted. Are there reasons for 
locking the doors? 

Wliile I was in the infirmary, some 
of us were talking and I began wonder- 
ing.. ."What would we do if there was a 
fire at lunch when we are locked in and 
there's no way to get out, (at least we 
couldn't find a way out)." The only 
possibility 1 saw was to break llie win- 
dows or call someone for help on the 
one lelephoiie available. It is a Ihouglit 
to ponder on. To prove my point, a 
friend came to visit my roommate and 
I during lunch time. Il so happened that 
when the nurse left for lunch she locked 
the doors and our visitor was locked in 
too. She had a 1:00 class that day, so 
we all tried to open all the available 
doors and all were locked. There wasn't 
anything we could do except patiently 
wail until 1 :00 and this resulted in our 

:nd being lal 



the good things about the infirmary. 
Some of the nurses are really nice and 
try to help you get well and be comfort- 
able. Il is a great place to catch up on 
sleep and get rid of colds or other illnes- 
ses. Lastly, a doctor sometimes stops 
by .l-.:Jl. ■ ■ ■ ■ 


Don't get me wrong, the infirmary 
is necessary on campus and is good to 
have, but it is time some changes are 
made and NOW! 

A concerned sludenl,

My home is Knoxville, TN

Here at Mission Advenlista inNics,, 
gua my duties are varied: I (each injJi

The benefits I've gained have hmt,

closer to the Lord and discover strenrf 
and talents that I never thouglu I had 

1 made a promise to the Lord whal 
came that I would never say "No" lo- 
thing He asked me to do. There haw' 
been times when things have happened 
that I really had to pray about before I 
could say "Yes". Through il all ihepn 
rmse I've learned to depend on isPhHip 
plans 4: 13, "I can do all things ihrou/ 
Christ which strengtheneth me." 

There have been times of discourse 
ment, like when a woman brou^ither 

utes with her impressing (he fad that if 
the little boy didn't take his medicslion 
he would die. I'm now listening to the 
villagers mourning his death.

receiving a gunshot wound has now re- 
turned to her family. We took heilo

steak O's Revisited 

Editor's note: In response to the state- 
ment in last week's letter to the editor 
mentioning the Steak-0's which spoiled, 
Ronald Grange, the director of food ser- 
vices, stated thai the students will not 
have to pay for the loss and that it is not 
being billed to the cafeteria. The problem 
resulted when there was a malfunction in 
a freezer at the College Plaza where the 

Sleak-0's were being stored. Presenlly 
the problem has been fixed and 1200 
cases of Steak-0's have been moved im 
town where they are being stored lo l«

cafeteria are using this supply, ^ '^« 
college decided in the future to only "'

Spiritual Counseling 
Adds New Dimension 
To Religious Outreach 

Tiie Spiritual Counseling Program lias 
been in effect since Week of Prayer, and 
so far there has been only limited pariic- 
ipalion. Elder Des Cumniings, chaplain 
land sponsor of the project believes that 
llhe students are unaware of the fact 
llhal Spiritual Counseling has already be- 
Igun. "An overwhelming number respond- 
■ed on their chapel cards." Cummings 
■said, "that they would be interested in 
l^ucli a program." 

■•Spiritual Counseling is designed to 
;ei students' needs for assistance in 
Imaking spiritual decisions," Cummings 
laid. He added thai the program was 
Ibuill around the idea of bringing in fac- 
Hulty spiritual advisors to assist students 
■in their spiritual growth and renewal, 
lind in answering specific questions. 
I The program was begun as a result 
|of the fact that the chaplain could not 
r all the requests for spiritual coun- 
Iding, so the program was expanded to 
linclude the faculty, thus helping to meet 
||lhe needs of more students. 

For spiritual counseling, the student 
llneeds to make an appointment with 

i. Knittel at the Student Center desk 
llfTel. 4243)- Counseling hours are as 

V 8-9 a.m.. 10-12 a.m., 1-4 p.m.

lows: Dr. Campbell, Elder Cummings,

According to Cummings, students may 

I come for only one session to deal with 
a specific problem or may come on an 
ongoing basis for counseling or for Bible 

Spiritual Counseling is a pilot program 
to discover strength and weaknesses in 
(he project. Any problems will be worked 
out so that Spiritual Counseling will be

James Johnson Went To Jail 

li was a fluke, a case of miserable luck. 
I one ihouglit it would happen-not the 
ilricl attorney, the probation officer, 
ins lawyer-but James Johnston was 
■enienced to one year in jail. 
People get incarcerated every day, but 
iiely do you find anyone with the alli- 
; James Has. "I was perfectly happy," 
ays, "Sure, I wondered why and 
afraid to tell my girlfriend and par- 
;, but I said to myself. 'James. God 
do anything, and if this is what he 
Its for your life all thmgs work toget- 
her for good to those who serve Him."' 
' lil was the end of the road for James, 
lot in the sense that it is the end for 
people. It was the end of an eight 
long search for peace, a search fas- 
mating in its complexity, covering Ihou- 
'snds of miles, and most of all undeniably 
foieeful in its proof of God's leading. 
'■ all started back at Bloomfield Mich- 
James's home town. He was a pretty 
loodguy until he quit the Catholic school 
"i'i been attending for 1 years and 
*int lo public higli school. Then he start- 
"1 smoking and drinking, learned the in's 
mdoufsof the "in" generation, and found 
'hat he thought was the answer to life's 
probing questions-drugs. 

By the lime he went to college he'd 
lapped out, turned on, and begun to ped- 
i^sliis religion. "Drugs were my thing," 
IJJ ays, looking back in retrospect. "1 
ijgh t they were from God. 1 not only 
j°'« Ihem but gave them away thinking 
i *a5 doing everyone a big favor." 

Uuring the summer of 1968 he stayed 
,,?l?5"'l'ly Rich's house, a sprawling 
]'"^.000 mansion. The parents were

end at the Cederal prison camp in a small 
town in southeastern Arizona. 

After finishing the Bible James fell 
the presence of God, but there was one 
problem. He couldn't understand what 
he'd read. He knew thai when someone 
' in the Bible couldn't comprehend some- 
thing an angel would come set him 
traight, but the last thing he wanted 
/as a direct revelation from God. Why, 
ven the people in the Bible got scared 
and with the mess his life was in an angel 
would petrify him. There was one solu- 
on. though. God must have somebody 
■horn he'd revealed Himself to. and this 
crson must have written some books 
which would explain tiie Bible. So James 
said. "God, help me find those books." 

At the end of ihe summer he and Rich 
climbed into his 62 Comet and headed 
for Florida, the beaches, and some fun 
in the sun. By this lime James had quit 
hard drugs because of what he knew they 
were doing to his body, but no one had 
found anything wrong with niariguana. 
At least that's what he told hifnself. so 
when he left, there was a nice stash ot 
"pot" in the car. 

Afier an unexpected breakdown, police 
help, and some inquisitive officers, James's 
excursion ended a long ways from the 
beaches of Florida-the cily jail in Cleve- 

As he looks back, though, James real- 
izes that God's hand was leading. Because 
if he hadn't been thrown in jail he would 
not have read the 20th Century Bible 
Course lessons, and he wouldn't have 
been exposed to this glimpse of truth 
which intensified his desire for a complete 
undcr.iaiKhng of God's plan lot his hfe. 

versy between Christ and Satan, he mused. 
Suddenly it hit him. 'That's it James," 
God said, "there's your book." 

"I asked where I could get one of those 
Great Controversy books and my boss, 
being a typical Adventist, said, 'Here, take 
this one.' " 

In November James went back to Ten- 
nessee to face trial. The case was thrown 
out because the officers hadn't had a 
search warrant. He breathed a sigh of 
relief and started out for Florida again. 
"I had to find out if all of the things I'd 
read were true, so I dropped out of 
school, quit my job, left home, and de- 
voted all my time and energy into end- 
ing the confusion that had been eating 
my soul for the past year." 

When you reach a certain age Uncle 
Sam comes knocking on your doorstep. 
James knew one thing for sure, and that 
was that he could never kill another hu- 
man being or even support the principles 
of war by being part of the army, so he

Math And Physics Outing 
To Lost Creek ^ 
Planned For April 14 

"This has got to be a class assignment- 
right?" Dr. Lawrence Hanson, chairman 
of the Math Department leaned across his 

Physics outing lo Lost Creek was all about. 
After convincing him that the Accent 
really was interested in this expedition, 
I was able to get Ihe information I needed. 

The Math/Physics outing is an annual 
even!, planned by instructors in Ihe math 
and physics dcpariments for students major- 
ing in those fields who are free to invite 
one guest each. 

Students eligible to go on the outing will I 
be leaving campus about 8:00 the morning 
of April 17th lo enjoy a relaxed Sabbath, 
featuring an outdoor church service, "min- 
or" hiking before a picnic style dinner, 
then more hiking. There will also be lots 
of time lo jusi talk and become acquainted 
with everybody. 

"Lost Creek is a very descriptive name 
for it", says Hanson of the "nice sized" 
creek that flows for 3 miles before empty- 
ing into the Hiwassee River. The creek 
and accompanying campground, located 
about 42 miles from SMC and situated way 
back in a small canyon, are part of the 
Cherokee National Forest. There's a jeep 
trail along Ihe creek and plenty of good 
places to hike, even for those who don't 
like rugged hiking. There are all kinds of 
ferns and spring flowers around to pick 
or photograph, depending on your inclin- 
ation and who's watching. 

In the past, according to Hanson, be- 
fore the college was on the early semester 
system, the outing was held in early May 
when the weather was a little more ideal, 
This year if the elements are not cooper- 
ative on the 17th, the rain date is the 24lh. 

So, if you are a math or physics major 
(or if you have an easily bribed friend who 
is) with extra-curricular interests in wad- 
ing, potato salad and a chance to get to 
know your instructors and their families 
in a casual setting, you are urged to take 
advantage of this opportunity by signing 
up in Daniels Hall by the 14th. Or, if 
you are not majoring in math or physics, 
but ate thinking of changing your major 
for the occasion, contact Dr. Larry Hanson 
or Dr. Ray Hefferlin. (It just might be

for the SOUTHERN ACCENT, Since the 
election, I have contacted several people 
about obtaining a typesetting machine

there's a good chance thai the present 
machine will be sold.) Keep us in your

On the less technical end.... the ACCENT 
will offer a "Communiversily" program, 
will form a grievance-action squad (to act 
on your complaints), will maintain posted 

SMC and community. 

The paper will be divided up each week 
into several sections. We will have news, 
features, sports, political, and religious 
pages. Some of the weekly specialties will 
include: cartoons, a "Joker" column, a 
classified ads box, a foreign correspondeni 
column featuring a SMC reporter, "Knii-

leave a note in my mailbox {Room 213). 
We'll be glad to have you join us. I'd also 
appreciate any suggestions. With a lillle

Mills Explains Breakdown 
Of Funding For The College 

Tuition rates are always of major impor, 
to students. For this reason Business Man- 
ager, Elder R.C. Mills, was asked to give 
some insights into the financial picture as 
It relates to them. 

"We have had a S7S general fee which 
students paid to cover various items." After 
a nuciuating career, this has been abandoned 
11 SMC as a means of educational Hnance 
However, now we have adopted a plan 
which incorporates the items previously 
covered in this way, into the semester hour 
charge. This means a paymem of SSI per 

hour, an increase of S6.50 per 
- hour, without the additional bur- 
den of the general fee advance payment." 
Speaking of the division of tuition costs 
r lasi ye;ir. Elder Mills pointed out that 
;"rne from students came to a total of 
,100,000. This total included dormitory 
Hal rates, dining charges and various 
other financial matters. The tuition itself 
ne to 52,900,000. 

Distribution of income and expendi- 
res of the college can best be visual- 
■d in the accompanying graphs. 

should explain that gifts and grants 
— -.- church donations and union subsidies. 
Student Services involve the Dean of Stu- 
dents which entails one-half the cost of re- 
sidence hall deans. The other one-half 
goes into residence halls," explained Mills. 
"Instruction costs involve the money re- 
quired to meet all teacher and educational 
supply financing. 

The man who is chiefly concerned with 
attempting to keep SMC operating in the 
black observed, "The tuitional require- 
ments have risen over the past several years. 
This seems to follow a general national 
pattern of intlation. For instance, where 
we were once used to paying perhaps S 1 .35 
foragallonof milk wemay nowpay Sl.47 
or more. It's now an established inflational 
pattern and, unfortunately, a part of every- 
day life. The same increase is seen in

le came and went. Things were 

really going great. James had turned liim- 

Ihree years probation plus two years work 
medical field. He had a job taking 
of a paraplegic, so that didn't pose 
problem al all. 

'1 was helping kids by showing them 
that by living healthfully they'd have 

energy and freedom of mind, my 
family had almost accepted God in a per- 

al way because of my influence and 
prayers, and life had even taken on a sem- 
ince of order and routine." 
Then it happened. A shoot-out in 
Nogales, Mexico led to the arrest of a 
"dealer" in Texas who turned stale's 
evidence and told all he knew. Included 
in his story was the 4-year-old incident 
where James and Jed picked up the mari- 
juana. One minute James was a free man 
and the next he found himself charged 
with a felony carrying a 5 to 20 year jail 

"I'll lell you what," his lawyer lold 
him. "IVe worked out a deal so that you 

plead guilty to a misdemeanor, and 
that will satisfy the prosecution. Everyone 
knows what kind of guy you are, and I'm 
you'll gel by with a couple years pro- 
3n." The district attorney and his 
probation officer for draft eviision both 
agreed, so James went to court expecting 
a light sentence. 

A stand-in judge from Pennsylvania 
who didn'l know Ihc case tried him and 
handed out a jail sentence. Looking back 
James says this is the best thing that could 
have happened to him. "When 1 gol to 
the jail I said. 'Lord, you know what you 
are doing," and He did. I wasn'l walking 
24 hours a day with Christ, and God knew 
1 was getting off the track. He knew thai 
1 was battling with my sins instead of 
learning lo trust Him." 

■But with all the lime IV had to think 
and to study God's word I've come to the 
point where I trust God completely with 

got plenty ^ ., 

willing lo listen lo what you have lo say. 
When I get a chance to talk to someone 
for an hour and explain the whole plan 
of redemption from Eden lo Eden it's 
ally beautiful." 

James figures he's told Ihe whole plan 
of salvation to al least 50 of his fellow 
prisoners, he has a prayer list of a 100 
people, and he's never been happier. 

"You know," he says, "every morning

less, but then a defensive lapse in the Mus- 
tang backfield gave an opening forWes 
Holland who put the ball into an empty 
goal. The half ended with the Cornels. 
.Idinga l-Olead, 

The Mustangs came out the second 
half (lying, and in a span of five minutes 

1 two goals to pull ahead. The Comets 
tied the score on a penalty kick by Cooper. 
The game winning shot was the prettiest 
■ of the game.From the corner Bill Am- 

ienx a pass into the goal crease wluch 

Swede Heilgrin headed into the net. 

Thursday's game between the Cooper 
brothers ended in a surprising 3-0 victory 
for older brother Adrian. The Comets 
played their best game of the year. Wes 
Holland scored twice and Adrian Cooper 
■red once. Cooper's goal was an unbe- 
/abie shot. From 40 yards, his lofty 
it went into the net much to the disbe- 
lief of all. 

Sunday's game between the Hotspurs 
and Mustangs was uneventful. Both teams 
played several men short-handed, and in a 
wide open game, the Mustangs came out on 
top 5-1. 

Swede Heilgrin led all scorers with three 
goals. However, goals by Coach Moon and 
Dean Halverson were the gems of the match 
Each headed in a goal. Halverson played 
forward for the last five minutes of the 
game and made the one goal plus narrowly 
missing another one. The Mustang's secret 
weapon is no longer a secret! 

In other action the Lancers and Hammer 
iffered double forfeits.

Why Be Patriotic? 

1 like yOLi luive grown up in an age oT cynicism, an age where an 
insatiable search for truth has torn away the glamour of the American 
dream an age stamped with the fiasco of Viet Naam and the cnimb- 
linc political ruins of Watergate. I have been lied to by leaders in 
"overnmenl and then told by people I admire to ignore those lies 
because everyone else lias lied in the past. 1 have been swindled by 
industries, duped by advertisers, and stuffed with propaganda to the 
point of nausea. 1 used to think that ultimately truth triumphed, but 
now I've come to believe that the stniggle between opposing factions 
IS not decided on the basis of principle but on the basis of who spends 
the most money to present their side. 

But when 1 find myself giving up on my country and my govern- 
ment when 1 find myself categorizing all politicians as crooks, ana 
patriotic flag-waving citizens as over-zealous fanatics, I realize that 
cynicil citizens such as myself breed corruption In high places. If 
I don't have enough faith in my country to really care what happens, 
why should I expect elected officials to feel any differently. If 1 as 
an individual don't stand up for freedom and principle in my home 
and community, how can I expect my governor and President to 
stand up for it on the state and national level. 

Sure America has more than its share of problems, but talking like 
it's already half way between the morgue and cemetery, isn't helping 
out any of these problems. A country is no better than the individ- 
uals living there, and the reason America is a great nation is not because 
of great leaders but because of the industry of a tree people who have 
been ei\>i: i\-i.'. u; h' - >^ing their destiny. It's when the individual 
K.^,,nn. ,; ■' scrupulous leaders take advantage of his apathy. 

Ill [|||. I; . r ■ ■ , . if we need more than just another celebration, 
niore ili,ni in 1 i Inik ti>'Nt.ilgic hoop-la. Freedom is like a crate of 
tomatoes, it will spoil it we fgnore it and leave it in some dark corner. 
Let's start examining the good in oiir country, and then maybe we 
can gain the courage to do our small part in changing the bad. Amer- 
ica has given you and me the best life style in the world. As students 
we h.ive ,1 izood chance of iiehieving our dreams unlike students in 
LoniiiiKs where liie government structures your life from kindergarten 
un 111' \\l' siiII cm worship God according to our consciences or 
openly disj.iini .my belief in religion. In opposition to the slums of 
the city, there is the unspoiled awesomeness of the Colorado Rockies, 
the miles of waving grain fields in the Middle West, the beauty of a 
Southern spring. Racial prejudice hasn't been eradicated, but on the 
other hand tremendous strides have taken place in the last ten years 
in solving this problem. All men or women don't have an equal 
chance, but they do have more of an equal chance than they ever 
have had before in the history of the United States. 

What I'm trying to say is don't give up on America, Even if you 
.ire only ;i ^nllege student, you can vote. Get informed. Take the 
ijnie ii' It 1. isi skim through a newspaper enough to know what the 
Issues ,ir,' I'l.Klice the principles of the American work ethic which 
emphasi/es a eond day's work for a good day's pay 

Patriotism is critical and at the same time optimistic. It is working 
for the welfare of others as well as yourself. It doesn't give up. and 
it doesn't shut up. Patriotism is more than a flag and national an- 
them. It's the spirit of America that needs to be cherished and nour- 
ished in the hearts of the great people in this great land.

The NRG Food Bar 

A Complete Meal 

Hey! Look what's new al the Village Market. Its a new Protein 
Energy Food Bar called NRG. IVIade with all natural ingreaients 
and containing no additives, no preservatives this bar comes in 
three delicious flavors — peanut (crunchy), fruit, ana chocolate. 
The chocolate is mainly tor color purposes, and the sweetening 
is In the coating only (one pari per million) , Containing '/: ot the 
recommended daily allowance of vitamins, minerals and protein in 
a three ounce bar, it contains only 300 calories and provides a 
full meal when eaten with 8 ounces ot your tavoriie liquid. ^\ 
This food bar is ideal tor evervone--active kids, senior cit- 
izens, and people on the go. For camping and hiking it's 
terrific (really great tor Pathiinders too) . Not only is it 
easy to take with you anywhere, but it stands up to 120 
degrees without melting. It has a shelf life o* six months 
and a irozen life of two years. According to nutrition ex- 
perts across the land, the first lesson in nutrition begins at 
oreaktast. Starting your day with an NRG protein meal is a 
great idea. The way you teel, how well you perform mentally 
and physically is a direct result of good health resulting 
irom proper nutrition. NRG Food Bars are economical and 

Eat slowly to enjoy the full flavor of every bite.

here at SMC is to make this organization

one that will have a reputation of getting 
things done. We Iiave planned for several 

dozen off-campus trips t 

territory. We arc also hoping to conduct 
several 5-day plans in conjunction witl\ bUA 
medical institutions in our area, set up a 
Smoker's Dial, and run several radio spots 
on health topics. Other projects for olt- 
campus will be a large booth and display 
at shopping centers such as Norihgate and 
Eastgale and the fair, a public demonstra- 
tion of Smoking Sam and the mechanical 
smokers, and giving out many foriiis of 
ure at these booths and displays.

^1 editorial lor the SOUTH- 
low looking back in retro- 
le ones. Of course there 

s when nothing seemed to go right-articles fizzled out at the 
last minute, equipment broke down; and I was sick of commas, good 
syntax, balanced layouts or anything concerning a paper. But then 
there was always that feeling of satisfaction when going down to pick 
up the paper from the press. So often in college life the only tangible 
results you see from your work are letters on a piece of paper, but with 
a newspaper you have something to show for your work. Every line, 
every article, every headline has a piece of your heart in it, and you're 
proud of it even with all of the blunders and mistakes. 

Although I can't mention everyone's name who helped out on the 
paper, I would like to give special credit to a few who gave more than 
their best. First of all I'd like to single out my roommate, Gordon 
Doneskey. He was always faithful no matter what and spent countless 
hours each week making sure we had a paper. There were times when 
because of the tedious responsibility he wouldn't have minded quitting, 
but he didn't quit and 1 thank him for it. 

On the ma-^thcad Judy Wuttke is listed as the typist, but if the truth

luivi.- been countless weeks when there wouldn't have been a SOUTHERN 
ACCENT except for the extra effort you put into it. 

Mr. Durichek spent Christmas vacation in the hospital due to his 
heavy work load, and no small part of that work load was staying up 
almost all night once a week to print the ACCENT. Thank you Mr. 
Durichek for the fine printing job you and your class have done. 

Denise Schaller joined the staff in the middle of the year, and the 
newsy tidbits she's come up with have given (he paper a little more zest 
Thank you Denise. 

Finally, our sponsor, Ms. Andrews, has been there when we needed 
her and yet at the same time let us as a staff am our own newspaper. 
Slic has been a loyal supporter and a fine sponsor. 

As for tlie rest of the staff I'd like to mention your names also but 
you know what it's like-there just isn't any more room on the editor-

We Want Equolity 

Dear Editor: 

In this year, 1976, we are celebrating our 
nation's 200th birthday which is based upon 
the three main freedoms: freedom of relig- 
ion, which brings us to this school, freedom 
of the press, which allows us to print this 
letter, and freedom of speech, which allows 
us to voice our views, realizing the conse- 
quences we might face. 

Instead of going from committee to o. n- 
mitlee, wlierc the initial point sometimes 
gels lost in the shuffle, we feel the best meth- 
od is going through the paper. This way our 
point can be pul across so other people can 
see how we stand and act for or aeainst.

fclo SMC? 

no answer to when the build- 
; to stop. Buildings are based 


there will subsequently be more build- 
ings on college campuses. I am puzzled 
about the suggestion that we have had 
continual additions to housing and not 
to classrooms at SMC. All of our recent 
buildings on the campus have provided 
classrooms. We have classroom availabil- 
ity in the Student Center and in the bot- 
tom floor of tlie Student Center we have 
the entire business department. Our nur- 
sing education building provides a place 
for our entire nursing curriculum. There 
are several classes in the McKee Library. 
Our former, library, Daniells Hall, was 
converted into a classroom building. We 
hold classes in Wright Hali. Our home 
economics building handles classes from 
that and other departments. Further- 
more, if we get into a really light spot 
with classroom housing, all we need lo do 
is run a schedule of evening classes. Many 
schools have a full complement ofeven- 
ing classes and we can move a good body 

J the 8 


period. We could also make much n 
use of our late afternoon hours, Monday 
through Thursday. 

The growth in the number of students 
reflects a need. We could turn these slu- 

he SMC campu the ad 

dents away, including those within and 
without the Southern Union. An interest- 
ing fact is, however, that if a Seventh-day 
Adventist young person desires to attend 
a college out of his union and is turned 
down, there is a distinct possibihly and 
likeliliood thai he will not attend a college 
within his own union. Seventh-day Adven- 
tist colleges represent more than regional 
interests. They represent the inlereslsof 
the entire world field. An alternative to 
the present plan would be for the South- 
ern Union or the General Conference to 
start a brand new college somewhere in 
the Southern part of the United Slates, 
Financially, this is not feasible in our pre- 
sent inflationary times. It is far more ec- 
onomical to expand on one campus where 
the core facilities already exist than lo 
start all over again someplace else and try 
to duplicate everything, including faculty. 

How is the financing done for new 
buildings? Is the building designed so 

't can be used for other facilities if 
need be? 

Southern Missionary College receives 

annual subsidy from the Southern 

Union for its building program. This sub- 

sidy is currently being used !o pay for a 
few of the buildings on our campus that 
are not yel paid for. The new dormilor- 
ies presently under construction are being 
financed by the Commitlee of 100. The 
industrial arls building was financed 
througli private contributions as was the 
nursing building. Our fine arts complex 
will be financed by non-Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist donations and any of these build- 
ings can be used for whatever purpose 
tlie college desires. For the next several 
years Ihe Southern Union Conference 
building subsidy for SMC will not be used 
to finance new buildings.

Religious Vice-President Barf Willruth 

I'm Barl Willruth and I've been ap-

President for Ihe 1976-77 school year. 
This is a new office created for the pur- 
pose of having a full-time individual lo 
coordinate all Ihe various branches of 
Ihe on and off campus minislrics. Al- 
though Ihis is an SA office, it is filled 
by an appoinlmenl from the Religious 
Coordinating Committee. 

I'm a junior theology student from 
Orlando. Florida, and some of my ob- 
jectives tor next year are to clearly de- 
fine all positions in Campus Ministries 

for the purpose of a well-run organiza- 
tion, and lo develop a long range plan 
lo provide conlinuity of programs from 

Anyone who is inleresled in assisting 
in one of ihe programs of religious acliv- 
ilies next year is invited lo speak with 
me or one of the other officers before 
Ihe end of the year, so that we can know 
what kind of support lo expect when 
laying plans for specific programs. 

A Very Unique Proposal 

the couple involved, i 

li was Sunday, April II, around noon, 
when sunbalhers on Jones Hall balcony 
were rather startled to hear the hollow 
clapping of horse hooves and a general 
commotion below them on the road in 
front of the dorm. Upon invesligaficn 
the girls (with blankets carefully wrapped 
around them, of course) found that a 
knight in a tunic and chain mail was riding 
up to Jones Hall on a white horse. Ac- 
companied by a squire, the knight was an 
arresting and much photographed figure, 
against a background of thundering cannon- 
balls and screaming police sirens announcing 
the arrival on campus of academy seniors 
for college days. In fact, more than a week 
later, a student said. "Oh yeali, I saw that 
guy riding around on a white horse but I 
thouglit it was part of college days." 

However the knight, known to liis 
friends as "Butch" Barnes, had more serious 
intentions. He had come to Jones Hall to 
claim the hand of the fair damsel, Shelli 
Dager. Shelli floated majestically down 
the steps in a long blue gown and a medieval 
styled hat with veil. Later Shelli said, "I 
think I surprised him more than he did me." 

This doesn't happen every Sunday, so 
this reporter asked the happy couple where 
the idea for this romantic venture came 
from. Back in December while (he couple 
was horse back riding, Buich, atop a brown 

I horse, asked Shelli if she'd ride off with 
him (presumably into the sunset). She re- 
plied, ""Yes, I would if you had a white 
horse and a suit of armor." 

In the ensuing months Butch reminded 
Shelli occasionally of her promise and 
warned her not to be surprised if he came 
up to the dorm in a suit of armor on a 
white horse. "I didn't think he'd do it!" 
Shelli insists. But, one miglit note, she 
was all ready when the big moment came, 
in her "damsel in distress" dress, made 
for her by Linda Rutter. 

In the mean time. Butch was making 
his plans. He had a tunic and cliainmail 
made for liirn by tlie Chattanooga Coslume 
Company and borrowed a white horse from 
a friend. "If it had been possible." Butch, 
a para-niedic living in Chattanooga, says, 
"I would have had them make a suit of real 

During llie wailing period before Shelli 
appeared the noble knight was heard to re- 
mark rather testily, "This isn't a skirt — -

Adventist homes. On ihe other hand, the 
Seventh-day Adventist church is growing 
increased pace and thus there is a 
^ rand a growing constituency every 
year to support higher education as well 
as secondary and elementary education. 
There is absolutely no suggestion that liie 
numbers of Seventh-day "Adventisls at- 
tending colleges will decrease at any time 
in the future while our schools are still 
open and there is considerable evidence 
indicating that the numbers of students 
will increase just as the size of the church 

We need to be very careful about fore- 
casts. The forecast for the 1975 fall sem- 
ester for college enrollment in the nation 
at large was at great variance with the 
facts. A much larger number of students 
went to college than had been proposed 
by a lot of the official forecasters and 
people are still trying to figure out how 
this could have happened. There is no 
suggestion of any decrease in the number 
of students wanting to. come to SMC ip 
years to come and I will say again the s

e that the Seventh-day Advent- 
■ifamily statistics are the same as that of 
iination at large and. therefore, there 
Tibe on a percentage basis a leveling off 
I'colleEe enrollment from Seventh-day 

Do you think that perhaps SMC students 
could benefit from a change in the school 
year's calendar to help save fuel during the 
winter months? Example: a March-October 
school year. 

The experience of people in Florida in- 
dicates that it is not cheaper to aircondit- 

1 the SI 

r than to heat in the w 

and 1 doubt that having school in the sum- 
mer months instead of the winter would 
help a great deal with our utility expenses. 
We would always need Ihe counterpart 
of summer school taking place some lime 
during Ihe school year and we subsequently 
would have to heal up most of our build- 
ings anyway during the winter to accom- 
modate (hose who cannot be here during 
the regular school term. Furthemiore. a 
reverse program would seriously interfere 
with the total social cycle of the home 
and would probably have rather serious 
side effects of many sorts. 

Instead of building and expanding to 


Little Debbie 



mcKee BaKinc companv 

accommodaIe_the increasing number of 
students, why not hold enrollment down 
to fill existing facilities? I believe in qual- 
ity, not quantity. 

This is a v^ry valid observation and I 
do wish it were possible for us lo hold 
our enrollment down to fill only existing 
facilities. There was a proposal lo do 
this when we had room for 1000 students. 
This would not begin lo take care of the 
needs of Ihe Southern Union alone and 
in effect we would have denied Seventh- 
day Adventist higher education to those 

n who wanted il 

Again, I must state that when students 
are denied admission lo Iheir own school, 
they do not tend to go to other Advent- 
ist schools. Therefore, the young people 
from our Seventh-day Adventist homes 
who would be turned down at Southern 
Missionary College would in general go 
to nearby public colleges and universit- 
ies. Furthermore, it is extremely difficult 
to tell parents their children cannot come 
to a college within their union thai the 
parents support througlr their offerings. 

Coupled with this is the plain fad that 
our tuition coststhtougji the years would 
have gone much higher than Ihey already 
have. An increase of even 20 or 30 stu- 
dents during a school year does very much 
to govern the rise of tuition costs and Ihe 
extra padding of having a few more stu- 
dents each year brings (he tuition costs 
lower. If we would have restricted our 
size lo 1000 students some years ago, (he 
tuition costs for next year would be in ex- 
cess of S5000 for tuition alone. Seventh- 
day Adventist schools are not blessed with 
large endowments and the operating monies 
for these schools must come from the con- 
ferences and the union and tuition. The 
Southern Union and the conferences al- 
ready spend almost a million dollars an- 
nually to support Southern Missionary 
College and they are really not in a posit- 
ion to do anj^ more than this_and still

(targe Adventist community), wouldn't 
it be advisable to establish a number of 
smaller schools rather than expanding? 
Many schools and colleges have closed 
in the last few years; could we take over 
some of these? 

The problem with the "Battle Creek 
syndrome" was that the Adventisls flock- 
ed there and were not going anywhere 
else. At the time that Mrs. White wrote 
about the Adventist work at Battle Creek 
the vast majority of Michigan had no 
Adventisls. There were scarcely any Ad- 
ventisls in the western part of the United 
States and very few overseas. TJiere were 
essentially none in Ihe South, the South- 
east, or the Southwest. What Adventisls 
there were crowded together in one spot 
and there were no rays of light penelrat- 

. Today the picture 

ing North A 

has changed and Seventh-day Advent- 
isls are not known primarily for their 
large centers but rather for Iheir multi- 
tude of churches scattered Ihroughoul 
the world. Moreover, Mrs. White is very 
much concerned that the total work
