2 . THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thursday, September 6, 1979 



The Southern Accent is a paper for the whole student body, 
but it is impossible to satisfy everyong on campus, so we're 
going to try our best to please as many readers as possible. 

The only way we can improve The Southern Accent is if 
you — the reader — responds. We want to get you involved in 
The Southern Accent. We have a free classified ad section for 
you to make your announcements and to send messages to 
friends. Also, we want to get your opinion on campus issues in 
the Street Beat column. And, of course, ther's the "Letters to 
the Editor" page for you to respond to things happening in The 
Southern Accent or on campus. 

The first question some of you probably will ask is "Why have 
advertisements.?" Without the support of our advertisers we'd 
have to get an additional appropriation of $2,500 from the 
Student Association. This would inevitably reduce the services 
offered by your SA. We will not, however, fill the Accent full of 
advertisements without adding extra pages. 

With the support of you and our advertisers we are going to 
try to make this the best Accent published in the past 34 years.

community. Those exceeding

New Fine Arts Complex 
Ready to Break Ground

The important-looking sign 
on the north lawn of Talge 
Hall marks the spot of the 
proposed new Fine Arts Com- 
plex. Construction is sched- 
uled to begin early this fall. 

The estimated cost of the 
complex is S3. 3 million. 
Approximately $2.7 million of 
I that figure has already been 
raised. A single company in 
Chattanooga donated 
5250,000. The fund-raising 
campaign has been entitled 
"Project 80." Its chairman is 
O. D. McKee. 1928 graduate 
of SMC and chairman of the 
board of McKee Baking Com- 

The complex will consoli- 
date the music department 
under one roof; music classes 
now meet in five different 
locations. New buildings will 
also house the art department, 

which meets in the basement 
of Jones Hall, and the com- 
munication department, now 
using one of SMC's oldest 

The first building to be 
constructed will be the music 
center. !t will house a 400 seat 
recital hall with a tracker 
organ, class and practice 
rooms, and offices. Ground- 
breaking for the project will be 
during chapel on Thursday, 
Sept. 13.

Judge Wilson noted that the

On May 29, 1979. Robert planned to do construction and 

mechanical work at the Tas- 
bah Raya Mission and to 
transport nurses to and from 
local villages. 

"When my plane landed I 
could tell that there was some 
tension and anxiety among the 

passengers," says VanRaden. 
"but they were all speaking 
Spanish. Later I found out 
that a few days before, a plane 
had either been shot down or 
riddled with machine gun fire 
after it landed." 

When VanRaden arrived he 
knew nothing of the country's 
revolutionary war to over- 
throw the president of Nica- 
ragua. The plane would make 
only a quick stop in the 
capitol, Managua, before de- 
parting to Porto Cabesas, 
about 60 miles from the Tas- 
bah Raya Mission. 

Upon landing in Managua, 
VanRaden was informed that 
he would not be able to 
continue his flight to the 
mission because of fighting in 
Porto Cabesas. All flights 
landing there or even going in 
that direction were discon- 
tinued. A few flights were 
leaving Managua for the US 
and other countries, but Van- 

Raden decided to stay and see 
what the future would bring. 
Elder Robert Eubanks, con- 
ference president of Nica- 
ragua, invited him to his home 
and there VanRaden decided 
to wait and see whether the 
fighting would slow down. 
. During his two weeks there, 
Robert worked for the con- 
work. He was forced to stop at 
the beginning of the second 
weel because the Sandinistas 
had threatened to bum down 
any business that allowed 
normal work to go on. 

Even during all this, Robert 
still wanted to go on to the 
mission; he felt that if he 
made it there he'd be safe 
even though fighting was 
going on 60 miles from Tasbah 
Raya. Unfortunately, circum- 
stances were getting worse 
instead of berter. Robert and 
Elder Eubanks discussed the 
situation and with mixed feel- 
ings decided that it would be 
best for Robert to return to the 
US until things sertled down in 

The threat from the Sandi- 
nistas wasn't the only draw- 
back to staying. The continual 
firing that was becoming 


around Managua seemed 
be another sign for Robert to 
return to the States. Once he 
even came close to being hit 
when an unannounced array of 
bullets came from nowhere 
towards him and a guard he 
was talking with. Managua 
was becoming less and less 

But there was also the 
problem of getting out of the 
country. The American Em- 
bassy had called VanRaden 
and made arrangements for 
him to leave on a US military 
cargo plane, but the Sandi- 
nistas had demoHshed roads 
and burned cars and tnicks, 
making road blocks in many 

Robert was escorted to the 
airport — a secret one used 
only for top officials — by a 
caravan of about 10 cars and 
trucks can7ing other passen- 
gers also leaving Nicaragua. 

"I remember looking out 
the window and seeing dead 
bodies laying along the side of 
the road," says VanRaden. "I 
was just thankful that 1 wasn't 
one of them." He later 
learned that many of his 
friends and relatives had 
known of his predicament and 
had been praying for him. He 
feels that was one reason for 
his safe return to the States. 

Now back as SMC, Van- 
Raden still wants to return to 
Nicaragua. "No other place 
would be quite as good for me 
in the mission field, because I 
could do what I love to do 
there — construction and auto

"Step One" where I showed 
the lady my registration pass 
and ID card (you know, the 
thing with the fantastic picture 
of you on it ). Next, I went 
straight to my major's table 
and had my adviser sign my 
carefully planned schedule 1 
had laid out in advance. 

Now, the hard part, signing 
up for those classes before 
they are filled. There's one 
thing I've learned about re- 
gistration — you are on your 
own, not even theology majors 
will help you. While I was 
there, someone announced 

over the PA system that 
Grant's TJ class at 9 o'clock 
only had room for one more. 
At once this 6'2", 210 lb. 
theology student I know and a 
little 5'2". 90 lb. freshman girl 
made a dash for the religion 
And just as he was 
o reach the table she 
it her foot and sent him 
ato the academic dean 
who promptly signed his Op- 
Scan sheet. 

The first thing I did after 
getting my adviser to okay my 
schedule was to go to the 
business administration table 
and ask if Principles of Ac- 
counting at 9 o'clock was still 
open. It wasn't. Now that I 

flying i 

think about it accounting at 1 
o'clock is a better time for me. 
Next I went to the history table 
and Western Civ. at 8 o'clock 
was full. So what's wrong 
with the History of the CK and 
other oil refineries at 5:30 

1 walked around for the next 
hour seeing my perfectly 
planned schedule torn to 
shreds. After awhile i started 
walking around in a daze and 
the last thing 1 remember was 
getting into the 4 a.m. section 

of Speed Reading Made Easy. 
My friends told me late" 
they found me sitting in a 
corner of thegym clutching my 
finished class schedule and 
mumbling something about 
Foundations of the 19th Cen- 
tury Dating Practices at 9 

The next thing I remem- 
bered was sitting in my first 
class the next day and the 
teacher taking roll. 
"Dickerhoff, Steven." 
"Here, well, almost."

Volunteers Train at WSMC

Student and

part of a new training pro- 

A dozen volunteers have 
been attending a mini training 
course at WSMC for the past 
few days to prepare them to 
operate the equipment and 
announce on the air. In the 
course they are taught basic 
rules of broadcasting and 
rules of the Federal Com- 
munications Commission. 

WSMC-FM is a public radio 
station that gets much of its 
support from donations. By 
using volunteers WSMC can 
keep within its budget while 
providing valuable experience 
to students, faculty members 
and members of the com- 
munity. Station manager Don 
Self said this is one of the 
main objectives of the pro- 

This is not the first time the 
station has used volunteers. 
"When I came here, WSMC 
i operated almost entirely

one will be taught later this 
year or at the beginning of 
next year. 

Opportunities for volunteers 
are available not only in 
announcing positions but also 
in other areas of station oper- 
tions. Self noted that the 
station is looking for student 
or community volunteers to 

help with the preparation and 
distribution of the monthly 
program guide. Listen. 
Volunteers can also help with 
the producing and screening 
of some programs.

Social Activities Director 
Becky Dowell described the 
program as, "An amateur

Ed Sullivan used to do." 

The show will be divided into 
two categories: musical num-

What suggestions or expectations do 
you have for the SA this year? 

Janell Kirkman. senior, nursing. Seattle. Wash.: In the past the SA hasn't had 
much student involvement. Part of the reason is because the programs weren't what 
the majority of the students are really interested in: i.e.. classical concerts. I'd like 
to see them put a student- elected student council back into fiinction to give us an 
official voice to the faculty. 

GET INVOLVEDl I It s^ms that everyone is saying that— SA 
officers. Campus Ministries, Sabbath School superintendants 
and even the deans. Your involvement will make a great 
difference in your college life. 

Campus Ministries has different activities for those of you 
who need something to do on Saturday afternoons. It is a great 
time to share your faith with others. There are many different 
groups you could join if van wanted a variety— Jail Bands, 
CABL. Adopt-a-Grandpar«nt, Bonny Oaks and Bible Study 
Evangelism. This will not only benefit those you are witnessing 
to, but it will also fulfill your own spiritual needs. 

The Student Association' needs people to be on the various 
faculty committees to represent the students in the planning of 
the College. Also they neei students to run for Senate. Some 
may think that it is a waste of time, but the student's voice is 
heard on this campus by the faculty. 

There are also the Sabbath School and dorm worships in 
which one can help out. It begins to get mundane seeing the 
same people leading out. Volunteer to help the superintendents 
and deans in Sabbath School and worship. 

By becoming involved you will undoubtedly make many new 
friends and your year at SMC will seem to pass by quickly. Do 
your part to help the Campus Ministries, Student Association. 
Sabbath Schools and your deans. GET INVOLVED!!

The Rich Young Pre-Med Student ?f 

The school year had begun 
with its usual air of self- 
sufficiency for Bruce C. 
Whittum. Bruce, a junior 
pre-med student was at the 
pinnacle of everything worthy 
of his attention. 

Already, he had effortlessly 
■'cleaned up" his opponents 
in the first two rounds of the 


John mcvay 



His was the first name on the 
sign-up sheet for the matching 
episode in racquetball. 

Sports, though, was only 
one of Bruce's many points of 
finesse. His attire was invar- 
iably "sharp." He always 
looked like a classy correlation 
of Dress for Success and GQ 

Bruce's dating status, sur- 
prisingly, was "unattached." 
He reveled In the realization 
that at least a score of Thatch- 
er's finest waited, hoping 
against hope, that they might 
be the lucky girl for just one 


Saturday evening. 

But. sports, clothes, and 
dating were secondary on his 
list. At the top was an 

appetite — one that fed, not on 
new and exciting knowledge, 
but on a healthy GPA. This 
was the "bottom line" of 
Bruce. A tennis match, a 
date, or looking "sharp" all 
would fade into oblivion if 
challenged by the need to 
study for a quiz or test. 
Fortunately, he rarely needed 
to make such pagan sacrifices. 
Bruce's cumulative GPA 
stood at 3.93,^Tie A minuses 
accounting for the lack of 

perfection, were doubtlessly 
the responsibility of calcified 
members of the teaching pro- 

Despite his popularity and 

level, there had been a nag- 
ging problem of late. Every 
aspect of campus life was a 
delight to him — except one. If 
he was a "jock" in every other 
way, wondered Bruce, why 
couldn't he be a spiritual 
"jock" as well? It seemed to 
be the last mountain of mas- 
tery for him — the peak that 
beckoned his conquest. 

One day, Bruce saw the 
most controversial and popu- 

lar religion teacher conversing 
with a small group of students 
just outside the Student Cen- 
ter. Feeling a bit uncomfort- 
able, he joined the group. At 
the first lull in the conver- 
sation, Bruce departed from 
his normal smooth style and 
blurted out the question, 
"What do 1 have to do to 
become 'cool' spiritually?" 

The great Teacher paused 
for a long time. The other 
students, aware of Bruce's 
charisma, dared not splinter 
the silence. Looking deep into 
Bruce's eyes, the Teacher 
responded, "There are many 
people around you who des- 
perately need help with their 
studies. If you want to be 
perfect, go, sell your high 
GPA and give them some

All-Amerlcan Sport Now in Full Swing 

D Diane Gainer 

Baseball is a sport held deai 
by any red-blooded American, 
and the opening of Softball 
season has been met with 
appropriate enthusiasm. As 
one fan succinctly put it, "The 
season is finally under way." 

Pitching machines are being 
used again this year, hurling 
balls approximately 45 m.p.h. 
in the Women's League and 
55 m.p.h. in the Men's 
League. Other equipment 
includes new bases. 

cemented-in steel bleachers, a 
storage shed, newly-installed 
home-run fences (over which 
every player dreams of hitting 
that Grand Slam), and even 
some official-looking signs 
stafing that the baseball dia- 
monds are for College use 

But the biggest asset is the 
people involved. Players this 
year are divided into three 
leagues — with seven teams in 
both the Men's East League 

and West League, and six 
teams in the Women's 
League. Games have been 
played with a predominant 
spirit of eagerness and ener- 
getic effort. A good turnout of 
spectators has also been on 
hand to lend their support and 

If you haven't yet come to 
see (or better still, play in) one 
of the games — the season is 
still young. Don't miss out on 
all the fun.

Car Chase Ends on Campus 


Shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday 
night, a five-mile police car 
chase ended abruptly on the 
footbridge across from the 
SMC tennis courts. 

The chase had begun when 
W. B. Lampkin, Hamilton 
County Police Officer,. 
observed a maroon 1966 Ford 
LTD turn onto Ooltewah- 
Ringgold Road at Standifer 
Gap, moving erratically and, 
Lampkin judged, recklessly. 
He flashed his blue lights, the 
car speeded up, and Officer 
Lampkin chased it into Col- 
legedale at speeds reaching 90 
miles per hour. 

"! wasn't running wide 
open," said Lampkin, "but it 
wasn't safe to go any faster." 

Responding to a radio alert. 
Jim Shanko, Collegedale 
Police Officer, placed his pa- 
trol car sideways in Camp 

form a road block. Just before 
reaching Shanko, the LTD lost 
control coming around the 
comer, hit a parked car, and 

bounced onto the foot bridge, 
missing the creek by about 12 
inches. The parked car, a 
white Impala, belonged to 
Kent Campbell, an SMC 
student who was playing ten- 
nis at the time. 

A bystander, Mike Bennett 
from Ooltewah, who observed 
the episode, stated, "He must 
have been coming around that 
comer at 70 miles an hour. He 
started sliding sideways and 
we thought for sure he was 
going into the creek." 

The driver, handcuffed to 

the door of his wrecked car, 
said that he'd lost control 
because of "a stuck gas 
pedal," and that if he hadn't 
wrecked, he would have out- 
run the police officer. 

Four Hamilton County 
police cars and several Col- 
legedale officers were present 
at the scene. Upon investiga- 
tion, a cooler of beer, several 
shot-size bottles of whiskey 
and an amount of marijuana 
were found in the defendants'

Mail Room Causes Disappointment 

Dear Editor, 

Having always been more 
impressed by quality than 
quantity, I would like to make 
a comment about the mail 
service in Thatcher. I'm 
delighted that the mail is out 
by 12 noon, and on some days 
part of it is out by 10 a.m. Still 
I am alarmed — yesterday 
when my roommate arrived at 
class at 10, she greeted me 
with the news that we had 
three letters in our mailbox. 
My heart beat faster, then 
slowed. A bill for my room- 
mate and two letters for 
occupants of rooms other than 

Since the wrong letters in 
the right mailbox (or is it, 
right letters in the wrong 
mailbox) routine occurs at 
least every other day, I have 
grown accustomed to the sit- 
uation—or so I thought— until 
yesterday. Upon looking in 
the mailbox after chapel. I 
discovered a letter. Horrors! 
It was one of the same letters 
that had been handed over to 
the desk worker earlier. 

Well, so much for twice in 

looking man who was asking 
the desk worker questions. I 
returned to my room, ex- 
hausted and disgusted. 

It '

structive suggestions for an 
annoying problem. Possible 
solutions 1) If I had the time I 
could track down the letters' 
owners; 2) since I don't. 

perhaps the mailroom workers 
might take a few minutes each 
day to acquaint themselves 
with who lives in what room, 
and 3) if you're a deskworker 
and I return a letter to you, 
please believe me, it was in 
the wrong mailbox.

again, my hand emerged

Snack Machine 
Sells Student 
Spoiled Milk 

Dear Editor: 

First, let me say how 
pleased i am about the snack 
machines on the first floor of 
Talge Hall. They allow you to 
have that little extra meal 
without waiting in long lines. 
I see that others feel the same 
way when I find the machines 
nearly empty. 

But there is one problem. 
One day I bought a carton of 
milk and found it was spoiled 
and outdated by ELEVEN 
days. Looking through the 
machine's glass doors, I saw 
that all remaining cartons of 
milk were turned so that you 
couldn't read the expiration 
dates, after which the milk 
cannot be legally sold. 

I hope it was accidentally 
done, though the odds are 
certainly against it. I hope 
that whoever is in charge of 
the snack machines will place 
the milk with the dates out- 
wards from now on, so we 
don't waste our cash on 
spoiled milk.

Nursing Division Needs New Pin 

D Melissa Smith 

The Division of Nursing is 
sponsoring a contest to design 
a new nursing pin. 

"The present pin, used 
since the beginning of the 
nursing program at SMC is 
esthetic, but it lacks symbolic 
meaning," explained Nursing 
Director Ina Longway. 

The present pin consists of 
a laurel wreath set on a 
triangle representing the 
threefold education of the 
heart, mind and hand, an 
eagle and the nursing degree 

"We are interested in a 
design which will portray the 
goals, objectives and philoso- 
phy of Soufhern Missionary 
College. the-Division of Nurs- 
ing and the Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist Church," added Long- 
way. "We want a pin that our 
nursing graduates will be 
proud to wear because of its 
real signficance." 

It is not necessary to be a 

nursing student or an artist to 
enter the contest since a rough 
sketch and a description of the 
symbolism used will suffice. 

Fifty dollars and a bronzed 
Florence Nightingale lamp 
will be awarded to the winner. 



should submit their designs on 
a three by five card to either 
the Wright Hall switchboard, 
the Student Center desk or the 
nursing office in Mazie Herin 

Hall by Sept. 30 at ; 
Contestants may e 
than one time, but their n 

address and telephone num- 
ber must be on the back of 
each card. 

The contest judges will con- 
sist of three nursing instruc- 
tors, t\vo nursing students and 
three other instructors from 
outside the nursing depart- 
All entries will become the 
property of the Division of 
Nursing and will be judged on 
esthetic apperance, symbolic 
meaning, durability of design, 
creativity, and the ability to 
add on a designation of the 
bachelor of science degree 
without purchasing a new pin. 
In case of duplicate entries, 
only the first will be consi- 
dered and in the occurrence of 
a tie, the prize will be divided 
in proportion to the extent the 
ideas are used. 

The present nursing pin and 
a catalogue of pins are on 
reserve at the library for any 
contestants to view.

Inelda Hefferlin Describes Life in Russia 

DTerri Prins 

Inelda Hefferlin's trip to 
Russia began many years ago 
as an ardent interest in the 
Soviet Union. This interest 
flourished through many 
readings of the Russians, 
Dr. Zhivago. War and Peace, 
and An American Family in 
Moscow. Friends who had 
visited Russia fanned the 
I flame a little more. And a 

i Leningrad in 1976 sealed the 
1 desire to go back and stay 
I awhile. 

So when her husband, Dr. 
iRay Hefferlin, scientist and 
■ professor of physics at SMC, 
I received an invication from 

supermarkets. Stores tend ti 
specialize, so you have to go ti 
different stores for differen 
items. At first, shopping wa 
an all-day affair, but I sooi 


'Fcx)d in Russia is 
quite reasonable; 
I most cost about one- 
half of US prices." 

the Soviet Academy of Scien- 
tists to visit Russia as part of 
the Treaty Exchange Pro- 
gram, Inelda eagerly packed 
her bags. Ray, inelda, and 
I their two younger daughters 
[ lived in Leningrad for six 
I months while Dr. Hefferlin 
I did research at the Leningrad 
I State University. 

Now the Hefferlins are 

I back. And last week I spent 

afternoon in their living 

am, completely fascinated 

Inelda told of life in 




eigners only. I could find 
almost anything there. 

"Food in Russia is quite 
reasonable; most cost about 
one-half of US prices. A big 
freshly-baked loaf of bread is 
25 cents; carrots are 16 cents 
for2'/i pounds; vegetables are 
always cheaper, and milk is 
about the same price as here. 

"Russia is a far less throw- 
away society than the United 
States. Bagging of groceries 
is unheard of; everyone car- 
ries his own shopping bags. 
Mayonnaise and similar items 
are sold in returnable blue 
glass jars resembling old blue 
canning jars. I brought some 
of these jars back to keep with 
my canning jar collection. 
People accumulate jars very 
quickly in Russia and it is a 
real chore to return them. 
Sometimes people stand in 
line for hours waiting to cash 

"I bought all my milk from 
a milk store where fresh milk

2 - THE SOUTHERN ACCENT »niursd^s, September 27. ,1979 



With the new school year have come some changes in the 
worship scheduling. This may be a convenience for some, but 
for others it.creates problems. 

Last year the SA sponsored a 7:30 a.m. worship and the 
dormitories .held them at 7 and 10 p.m. (10:10 for women). 

The main problem with that schedule was that the evening 
speaker had to come to two verv different times. This year, to 
accommodate the speaker, dorm worship was changed to meet 
at 9:30 and 10 p.m., and the SA 'worships were discontinued 

While this new schedule may be great for the speakers, it is 
no so great for the students. More than likely if one can't make 
it to the 9:30 worship, he won't be able to attend the 10 o'clock 
one either. Without the morning or 7 p.m. worship options, one 
who knows he cannot make the late evening worships is just out 

The deans in Thatcher Hail, however, have tried to alleviate 
the problem by holding a 7:30 a.m. worship. This gives the 
women a chance to attend worships when they know they won't 
be able to attend evening worship because of other plans. 

If the mens' deans were to offer a morning worship option, 
they would see a decrease in worship skips — which would mean 
less work for them. They would also hear less complaining. 
After all, who are the worships for, anyway?

about the condition of roads on 
campus. They are in such a 
terrible state that it is danger- 

3 drive on them. 



Drive was recently torn up for 
repairs. That's fine, but 
shouldn't the surface have 
been replaced? In spots it is 
almost less than one-lane 
wide. In other places there 
are trenches across the road 
which are impossible to avoid. 
Also, the new ramp behind 
Lynn Wood Hall was a good 

idea, but try driving down it. 
There's a drop-off at the top 
that will tear the muffler off 
anything lower than a Jeep. 
The ramp itself is covered with 
mud and loose rocks, and in 
rainy weather it becomes a 
sort of ski slope for cars. 

Those of us who are village 
students have to contend with 
this mess daily. Somebody 
have mercy on us and our cars 
and fix this mess.

1 for i1 

Since I do not see Chapel as 
a punishment, I don't think 
attendance needs to be re- 

But when I look at the small 
number of faculty who attend 
Chapel, at least occasionally, 
and when I imagine how many 
students would follow their 
example if they were free to do 
so, then I understand why we 
have to go. 

I would like to see the 
faculty in Chapel not to make 
them "suffer" with us, but 
because only with them it is 
possible to be together as a 
college "family." 

I know college professors 
are busy, extremely busy — 
students are, too. Without 
effort I could name at least ten 
important things for me to do 

Thanks Elder 

■ Dear Editor: 

I want to say thank you and 
express my sincere apprecia- 
tion for the people involved in 
bringing Elder Zamora to our 
campus. This is my third year 
at SMC, and I have never 
heard anyone who got through 
to me better than Elder Za- 

Dear Editor: 

1 am a worker at the 
well-known Campus Kitchen 
(CK), and frankly I am tired of 
hearing such ludicrous re- 
marks about the CK. For 
example. I've heard it referred 
toas, "the grease-pit," "cam- 
pus crud," and obviously in 
bad taste, "totally gross." 

Many people on campus 
often are too lazy to go to 
breakfast in the cafeteria, so 
during their morning break 
from classes, they rush over to 
the CK to satisfyingly "feed 
theirfaces." For us who work 
there it is frustrating to pre- 
pare the food, and when our 

the call for their number, they 
complain to no end that their 
milkshake is melted or that 
their masterburger is cold. 
Often those poor, unfortunate 
workers who get stuck calling 
numbers are harassed and 
embarrassed by the distaste- 
ful remarks made by their 

1 know that working at the 
CK is HARD WORK, and 
when I get to my room, I am 
quite frankly too tired to do ' 

I remember once calling the 
number 33 twelve times inside 

and ten times outside the CK, 
only to find out that the person 
who had that number was 
talking so much that he didn't 
hear his number being called. 

Then he stormed up to the 
cashier and demanded his 
food immediately, only to find 
out that is was cold. 

Often we get people who 
order their food and go sit 
down to socialize while they 
wait. Then when their food 
arrives they decide they don't 

or they've decided to eat it 
somewhere else and want us 
to make the order "to go." 
For these people who seem to 
be so indecisive, I suggest 
they make plain to the person 
taking their order to specify 
exactly what they want! 

Many times we run out of 
certain items, but always, we 
try to substitute or reorder the 

the customer will be satisfied 
and therefore happy. 

We who work at the CK

Bob Gustavson. senior, accounting/religion, Jonkoping, Sweden: I think the 
meetings were excellent. I liked his positive attitude — he brought out the fact 
that people are better than generally thought to be. 

Ronda McMillan, sophomore, french horn. Orlando. Fla.: He presented his 
message in a practical way so that you can apply it to your life and see what God 
has in mind for you. 

Jeff Garibaldi, freshman, chemistry. Cullman, Ala.: It's the best Week of 
Prayer I've attended in my life. I learned that you don't have to wait till you get 
to heaven to experience an abundant Christian life. 

James Glass, sophomore, accounting. Keene. Tex.: I'm glad he was humorous

brought out new light in this area to me. I wouldn't mind seeing him return in 
the future. 

Bryan Aalborg. sohpomore. theology. Reading. Pa.: He presented Christianity 
as it should be— a life based on common sense of where we've come from, what 
we're doing now. and where we're going. He made Christianity attractive no 
matter what background a person has come from. 

Lori Kaester, sophomore, special education. Altamonte Springs. Fla.: He 
didn't try to play with my emotions. He gave examples of how to use 
Christianity in a practical way in my life. He appealed to my logic. 

David Gadd. associate senior, nursing. Knoxville. Tenn.: Elder Zamora is much 
better than the average speaker we usually have here. I regret bemg unable to 
attend the morning meetings due to nursing labs. 

Garth Metcalf. sophomore, nursing. Orlando. Fla.: It was very interesting. He 
brought out a lot of new ideas that a lot of preachers don't bring out, in particular 
the foot-washing service. It was a tremendous help. 1 hope it stays with me.

WSMC Presents New Shows 

D Valerie Dick , 

WSMC will present several 
new programs during the 
month of October. 

A live call-in program with 
H.M.S. Richards. Sr. is one of 
the upcoming specials. 
Richards, .who has been the 
speaker for the Voice of Pro- 
phecy for 50 years, will answer 
questions about the Bible. 
People from many cities in the 
United States will be asking 
the questions on this program. 
It will be aired on Saturday, 
Oct. 6 at 4:30 p.m. 

"Ask the President," an 
exclusive national call-in pro- 
gram with President Jimmy 
Carter is a two hour special 
from National Public Radio 
(NPR) which is scheduled for 
Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. 

"This is only the second 
time the President of the 
United States has agreed to 
talk informally with people all 
-over the country on national 
radio. . . ," announced NPR 
President Frank Mankiewiez. 
WSMC invites persons 

wishing to talk to the Pre- 
sident on this program to send 
a postcard listing name, ad- 
dress and telephone number 
to: "Ask the President," c/o 
National Public Radio. P.O. 
Box 19369, Washington, D.C., 

NPR will select phone 
callers from different cities 
who will then be able to talk 
directly to President Carter 
when the line becomes avail- 

One of the new programs to 
be presented will be a radio 
broadcast of the Seventh-day 
Adventist television program, 
"It is Written," with host, 
George Vandeman. This pro- 
gram will be a regular broad- 
cast, and it will be aired 
Saturday mornings at 10:30, 

From NPR comes "Concert 
Guitar." This new series, 
beginning Oct. 7, will be aired 
each Sunday at 8 p.m. 
Featured on each program will 
be full concert performances 
by young guitarists or estab- 
lished artists.

At a time when most aca- 
demic departments were 
winding down for the summer, 
McKee Library and the Or- 
lando Extension Library began 
a monumental task. They 
planned to reclass the entire 
Orlando collection, absorbing 
materials from the defunct 
Madison campus, in three 
short months. To accomplish 
this improvement in library 
services for nursing students, 
library staff on both campuses 
concentrated long hours to 
meet the deadline of the fall 

"Besides confusing stu- 
dents already acquainted with 
the Library of Congress sys- 
tem on the main campus, the 
Dewey system used in Or- 
lando was too inflexible to 
accomodate the needs of the 
rapidly expanding medical 
field." explained Peg Ben- 
nett, director of the project. 

The biggest hurdle was the 
distance between location of 
the collection and the 
puter terminal. "I doubt 
whether any library has 
attempted to classify a col- 
lection 600 miles away — and 
in such a short time," stated 
Bennett. Specialists 
mated cataloging, 
and Betty Collins 
from SMC to Orlando to 
each piece of printed 

and audio-visual material. 

Bennett spent four weeks 
and Collins one in Oriando 
sending back information to 
McKee Library where Collins 
and Loranne Grace were re- 
sponsible for feeding it into 
the computer terminal. 

It was this terminal, linking 
SMC with over 2000 libraries 
from coast to coast through 
the Southeastern Library Net- 
work (SOLINET) and the Ohio 
College Library Center 
(OCLC), that made the project 
feasible. "Without auto- 
mation," said Bennett, "the 
task would have consumed 
two yearsl" The work flow 
was arranged so that the 
computer terminal was in use 
from 6:30 a.m. continuously 
until 9:30 p.m. 

Charles Davis, Director of 
Libraries, says that he is 

proud of the library staff for 
attempting and completing, in 
record time, this necessary 
project. Peg Bennett acted as 
coordinator and was ably 
assisted by Betty Collins, 
Loranne Grace, Marion Lin- 
derman. Marianne Wooley. 
Jean Benedict, Mara Lea Cos- 
ton, and a number of student 

Davis feels that McKee 
Library is far more fortunate 
than most with its staff. As a 
group, they accomplished this 
summer nearly quadruple 
what one might expect from 
the usual staff. They adjusted 
readily to long hours and 
numerous procedural changes 
and participated actively and 
creatively in the endless de- 
cisions that had to be made as 
they extended and improved

reminded Mickey that India is 
a land in desperate need of the 
gospel. "We have had some 
real trouble here this week.

giri saw a tall man, half naked, 
with big eyes out the window. 
She is a Hindu and was 
hysterical for some time. That 
night in their Hostel, one or

and one actually saw a figure. 
Thenthenext night, stones 
began to be pelted on some of 
the boys from out of a vacant 
room, and from the roof, one 
boy saw figures which were 
approaching. On Friday one 
fellow was washing clothes 
and was bonged on the head 
by five rocks. Later, at lunch 
in the cafeteria something 
began shaking his chair and 
he was unable to lift food to 
his mouth. He hasn't sur- 
rendered himself to Christ yet, 
perhaps that's why the devil 
has a foothold there. Friday 
we had some earnest prayer 
bands. I was leading the band 
in which this fellow was. He' 
began to shake but managed a 
prayer anyway. There was no 
further trouble last night so 
maybe that problem has 
ceased to exist. Pray for us 
and my work."

health care created by the 
increased enrollment, Health

busier than it was intended 
that they should be. The main 
problem seems to be at nights 
and on Sundays when they get 
calls and visits at all hours. 
This does not leave enough 
time for studying. 

"Perhaps from Friday 
afternoon to Monday morning 
was too long to go without 
having the office open. By 
being open these three times 
on Sunday and with a little 
cooperation on your part we 
are hoping to condense your 
visits to these times. That way 
you can still have adequate 
health care and the call nurses 
can have blocks of 

the things they need to do," 
explained Eleanor Hanson, 
director of Health Service. 

The purpose of the call time 
is to care for the in-patients 
and emergencies. Health 
Service will continue to be 
available for the emergencies 
as it has been in the past. 
"An emergency is a pressing 
situation which suddenly 
comes up without warning so 
you could not prepare for it. If 
you are vomiting on Saturday 
afternoon and felt perfectly 
fine on Friday at 3:00 p.m.

nurses make their where 
abouts known to the college 
switchboard and leave a note 
on the door of Health Service. 
The Health Service is open 

all evening even though the 
door is locked. It is locked for 
the nurses protection. 

It is important that all 
health needs are taken care of 
by 10 p.m. when Health 
Service closes rather than at 
12:30 a.m. because the nurses 
do have classes. They also 
must check on the in-patients, 
give them breakfast and be 
dressed and ready for lab by 
7:30 a.m., so they must be in 
bed by 10 p.m. 

Another time to consider 
your health is Friday after- 
noon. Please avoid making 
unnecessary calls during the 
weekend; however, if you are 
sick, don't ignore your health 
till you can't stand it any 

longer. It's a discomfort you 
don't need. If you deal with it 
early you'll be happier and so 
will the call nurses.

Thursday, September 27, 1979 THE SOUTHERN ACCENT - 

Speaker Interrupts Church to Heal Woman 

[Luke 13:10-17 revisited] 

The church service began 
with an unusual sense of 
reverential awe. As the organ 
intoned the rich notes of "The 
Lord is in His Holy Temple," 
the ministers entered. Stand- 
ing in the pulpit, the visiting 
speaker began the invocation. 
His voice, surpassing the 
richness of the organ's low 
tones, seemed to engulf the 
audience and bring the group 
into the presence of God. The 
head elder stepped to the 
pulpit and announced the 
opening hymn. The regal 
melody of "0 Worship the 
King" raised the sense of 
reverential awe to an even 
higher pitch. 

"Eventually, it was time for 
the guest to preach. The head 
elder again stepped to the 
pulpit and with pride in his 
voice, introduced the visitor. 
As the preacher began, the 
head elder mused to himself, 
■"niiswill be the high point of 
worship all year — the people 
will be talking about this 
service for weeks. How 
fortunate it is that so many 
people turned out to hear 

The speaker, dressed in an 
attractive, two-piece, gray 
suit, had no problem in re- 
taining the interest of the 
people. As he began his first 
illustration, they were clinging 
to every syllable. Suddenly he 
stopped. The head elder 
couldn't believe his ears. 
What he though was a long, 
effective pause was turning 
into a period of embarrassing 
silence. And then the speaker 
turned from the pulpit and 
descended the platform steps. 
His eyes were fixed on one 
spot in the sanctuary — the 
place where all the little old 
ladies sat. One of the dear, 

John mcvay 

old sisters was the apparent 
object of his stare. The 
atmosphere of reverence was 
quickly disintegrating. 

Mrs. Swanson had sat in 
that pew for years, peering up 
at the speaker in her own 
unique way. You see, Mrs. 
Swanson was severely hunch- 

intently into her pitiful eyes 
said, "Lady, you can sit up 
straight now." Then shuffling 
past the others in the pew, he 
reached out and held her 
shoulders. Mrs. Swanson sat 
up straight! 

The head elder was terribly 
confused. What he thought 
would be praised, he now 
reckoned would be the object 
of derision; the service was 
ruined. Feeling responsible, 

he stood and cleared his 
throat. "People," (he dared 
not address the visitor) "it 
would be far more appropriate 
if you would arrange to be 
healed on some other day." 

The guest speaker, adding 
insult to injury, turned and 
addressed the men on the 
platform. "You hypocrites, 
don't you let your housepets 
outside on the Sabbath? Then 
why can't this woman, who 

Gospel Spread by 'Leaves' 

Leaves of Autumn are out in 
full color again. Leaves is the 
Campus Ministry free liter- 
ature distribution program. 
Johnny Lazor, director of the 
Leaves, believes that through 
it "much can be done to 
spread the gospel message to 
those around us." 

The name of the program 
Lomes from a passage in Ellen 
G, White's writings where hhe 
talks of taking Adventist books 
and "scattering them like the 
leaves of autumn." 

The colorful paperbacks for 
distribution include Steps to 
Christ, Desire of Ages, Great 
Controversy, and Bible 
Readings for the Home. Bible 
Study Guides are also avail- 
able upon request. The books 
do cost money, of course, 
which comes out of ihe Cam- 
pus Ministry budget. Because 
of this, Lazor requests that 

students take only the liter- 
ature they'll be able to pass 
out. The books can be picked 
up at the literature rack in the 
Student Center, 

In past years approximately 
2500-3000 books have been 
given out by students, Lazor's 
goal is to have over 4000 books 
distributed this year. 

If you have any questions, 
suggestions for making 
Leaves of Autumn more bene- 
ficial for the students, or 
requests for Bible Study 
guides, please call Johnny 
Lazor at 396-3630.

Reflections on How "Moon" Has Shown 

DPhil Garver(Garv) 

Under the chairmanship of 
Dr. Bud Moon the physical 
Education Department: (1) 
has gotten 3 new handball 
courts, (2) the track has been 
surfaced and lit. (3) the Fitness 
testing and screening program 
has been started. (4) new 
bleachers have been placed at 
the ball fields (a great im- 
provement over the old broken 
up wooden ones). (5) the track 
and field facilities have been 
vastly improved and (6) sand 
traps have been added to our 
much improved golf greens. 

Also. (7) pitching machines 
were acquired in an attempt to 
upgrade the Softball program, 

(8) the four old tennis courts 
are being resurfaced and lit, 

(9) the gym is now open and 
supervised from 8 to 10 two 
evenings a week. (10) the 
raquetball courts are open till 
10 four nights a week, (11) the 
gymnastics team has received' 
a 42 feet by 42 feet free-exer- 
cise mat and much more 

needed equipment and (12) we 
now have four people in our 
physical education depart- 
ment, three of whom have 
their doctorates. 

I feel that these accomplish- 
ments speak for themselves in 
behalf of the "Moon." 

Maybe it should be pointed 
out that last year the volleyball 
season flopped; there was no 
floor hockey; there was no 

badminton, ping pong, or 
2-man volleyball tournaments. 
These "malfunctions" were 
not the fault of the "Moon," 
and all of these activities were 
operational the previous year. 

My last point: writing 
rumors isn't in good taste! If 
all of the rumors on this 
campus'got printed, few of us 
would survive! 

Recreation Areas Improved 

undergoing a much-needed 
resurfacing job. Layers of 
asphalt and Tennis Mix (an 
asphalt-sand combination) 
have already been lain on the 
courts next to the VM, and the 
remaining work on these 
courts, including the final 
color coat, should be com- 
pleted with two more days of 
dry weather. The resulting 

courts will be medium-speed. 

Other welcome additions 
will include new lights, new 
nets and posts and wind 
screens for the courts; work 
will be done patching the 
cracks on the courts by the 
gymnasium within the next 
few weeks. 

Racquet ball enthusiasts 
can also look for- 
ward to changes for 
the better. Plans 
have been made to 
refmish old racquet-

With scarcely a week left in 
the season, teams in each 
division are battling furiously 
for that coveted first-place 

Ratledge and Kryger re- 
main undefeated in the Wom- 
en's League, with Wygal and 
Uzelac sharing a second-place 
tie. Sandstrom, hampered by 
rancellations due to rain, 
hasn't gotten off the ground, 
but has hope for the week 

In the Men's League, 
Thompson and Velasco lead 
the Western Division with a 
record of 2-0. Stephens, 
Eccles and Aalborg have also 
posted two wins each with a 
varying number of losses. 

Tuuri and Stone are unde- 
feated in the Eastern Division, 
with records of 4-0 and 1-0, 

respectively, Barrow looks 
like a strong contender for the 
first, also with three wins and 
one loss. Fowler and Knight 
are just getting started at 1-1 
and with a little bit of luck 
could come out on top, too. 

Actually, upheaval could 
occur in any of the divisions. 
With some teams having 
played five games and others 
only one, there is plenty of 
room for surprises. 

games have been scheduled at 
7 p.m. for every regular 
playing day during the rest of 
the season, so that games 
called off due to rain will be 
made up.

Cafeteria Cash Register Breakdowns to End 

DDebra Gainer 

Yes. the Computer Center is 
doing something about those 
I cafeteria cash registers that 
keep breaking dov^^ John

ordered three cash register 
terminals at $3,890 each from

plans to purchase two to four

last November Beckett said 
that if the company fails to 
meet that deadline the con 
tract will be cancelled and

The problem with this pos 
sibility IS that Custom Ter

Beckett was able to find in a 
year s search that could build

such as NCR (National Cash

have cash register terminals 
that are either too big, or too

The proposed new terminals 
will be larger than the old ones

2 - THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thursday, October 4, 1979 


Art Majors Have To Swim To Easels 


A newspaper, according to Webster, is a regularly printed' 
publication "containing news, opinions, advertisements, and 
other items of general interest." 

The Southern Accent is a student newspaper, supported wrtli 
the students' money, and written and produced by the students. 
The editors feel that the Accent should also be/or the students, 
printing the news, opinions, ads, and general items that will b? 
of importance or of Interest to the majority of them. 

Because there are over 2.000 students on campus, and only 
about 200 faculty members, the Accent cannot cater directly to 
the interests of the faculty. It cannot, for instance, pnnt lengthy 
articles extoUing one department's staff or discussmg one 
teacher's pet project. . 

Similarly, because CABL, or any other campus organization, 
only involves a percentage of the student body, we cannot be a 
newsletter representing any particular organization. 

The Accent editor has been democratically elected by the 
student body, thus it is his responsibility— and privelege— to 
choose which items will be of most interest to most of the 
students, and then to edit those items as he considers 
necessary. Don't get us wrong. We're more than happy to 
receive contributions from both faculty and students— we 
realize that our reporters can't adequately cover every new idea 
or happening on campus. 

It is not our responsibility to endorse the opinions of every 
person on campus in article form {though we can print most of 
them as letters to the editor). We've gottep tired of people 
coming to us complaining that "you left two -paragraphs out of 
my story!" 

It is our goal to please the majority of the people on campus, 
but we don't feel we can accomplish that by taking instructions 
from the minority. 

Last week's Street Beat question was 
omitted. It should have read "What is your 

Week of Spiritual Emphi 
campus? ' ' 

Dear Editor: 

The art majors here at SMC 
are characters of true dedica- 
tion and determination 
especially on rainy days. 
Although many may not real- 
ize it, the art department is 
securely hidden in the base- 
ment of Jones Hall. This 
obscure hideaway is a nice 
place to relax, especially if you 
like to ponder while you paint. 
Not many people frequent the 
place, and being a basement 
the windows let in very little 
light (or fresh air). But they 
do let in water and not just 
littie trickles. 

Last Thursday during paint- 
ing class I had to remove my 
shoes, roll up my pant legs 
and stand with my feet sub- 
merged in rainwater in order 
my easel. And across 



department, the water cov- 
ered the entire floor, bags of 
feldspar had burst open and 
the wooden storage shelves — 
already warped from years of 
this treatment— sagged sadly 
in the water. Fortunately the 
pottery wheels weren't being 
used that day, as the cords 
were underwater, and some 
potential artisan could have 
been electrocuted had they 
tried to turn on the machines. 

It's not too hard to put up 
with musty odors, warped 
canvases and friendly crickets 
that live in the basement with 
us. or to put up with the 
cramped conditions and cozy 
atmosphere created by 

canvases, stools, tables and 
supplies crowded into one 
little basement room, but the 
ponds, rivers and lakes 
formed on the floor during the 
rainy season are hard to 
ignore for long. 

I suppose it's more impor- 
tant that the music depart- 
ment be the first to be 
a new building, 
least the music majors 



pianos! Why is it that the art 
majors complaints and needs 
are the last to be recognized?

Explains Why 
He Doesn't 
Go To Chapel 

Dear Editor: 

I am sympathetic with 
Christine Schneeberger' s 

views {Accent, Sept. 27) con- 
cerning faculty attendance at 
chapels. 1 wish only to 
examine a few factors from the 
teacher's standpoint. 

The "family" atmosphere 
that Miss Schneeberger men- 
tions, desirable though it is, is 
almost impossible in a college 
.as large as SMC is now. 

Chapel programs are plan- 
ned primarily for the students. 
After a number of years, some 
of them inevitably become' 

The word "suffer" ap- 
peared in Christine's letter. 
Well, if one feels that one 
' ' suffers' ' in only four years of 
chapels, would it be humane 
to tie the faculty to every 
' chapel during a career of three 
Viecades or more? 

But let's be fair. I'll tell you 
What, Christine. I'll go to your 
chapels with you if you will go

Worships Not Convenient For Men 

Dear Editor: 

I have a complaint — it is 
about the times set aside for 
the worships in the men's 
dorm. Itwasjnst great during 

CALL 396-43S6 

the Week of Prayer to have it 
scheduled for 7 p.m. It 
seemed that not only did I get 
a lot more accomplished in the 
evenings, but I also was able 
to crawl into bed sometimes 
before 10 p.m. (something you 
can't do when you are re- 
quired to go to a 9:30 or 10:00 
p.m. worship). 

I feel that the dorm wor- 
ships need to satisfy the 
majority of the needs of the 
students. At 9:30 and 10 p.m. 
their needs really can't be 
satisfied. For one thing you 
can't hit the sack before 10 

p.m. Also your studies are 
interrupted and your concen- 
tration is lost by going to these 
late worships. 

The young lovelies in the 
women's dorm have morning 
worships. Why can't the 
men? We're just as capable 
and as resourceful as they. Or 
else why not schedule 7 and 10 
p.m. worship so that we may 
choose which is more con- 
venient for us.

pnt them to come and the 
t response did come 

from the Oriental countries. 
Elder Clark, President of the 
Far Eastern Division, sent a 
personal invitation urging the 
orchestra to come there. 

Then came the formidable 
task of filing all the necessary 
papers and raising the needed 
amount of money. "The 
amount of government red 
tape involved in a trip like this 
is amazing," Gilbert said. "I 
must have had a stack of 
correspondence afoot high." 

The trip budget was 
$104,000. Each student and 
faculty member paid $700 and 

Conductor Orlo Gilbert and wife Ellen 


P'ssion College in Hong Kong 

an additional $500 per person 
was raised through car 
washes, benefit films, 
letter-writing campaigns 
and the offerings received at 
concerts. Also, SMC donated 
$10,000 for the trip. 
According to Gilbert, the 
orchestra had enough funds 
left over to pay back a good 
share of the donation from the 

Some people might wonder 
why SMC should take their 
'orchestra alt the way to the 
Far East. Supporters of the 
trip fett it was a 
once-in-a-lifetime chance 
to visit other cultures, spread 
goodwill for SMC, acquaint the 
Far Eastern people with 
classical music and get a 
firsthand look at the overseas 
work of our church. 

The orchestra left Chicago 
on May 9 for the 
long-awaited three-week 
tour of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, 
Hong Kong, the Philippines. 
Thailand and Singapore after 
a slight delay. One of the 
orchestra members was 
missing. But he was soon 
found in the cockpit of the 
Boeing 747 and the trip got 

I asked Conductor Gilbert 
which concert stood out in his 
mind as the most memorable. 

He easily replied that the first 
concert of the trip in Otaki, 
Japan, at a public high schoof 
was his favorite. "The high 
school students were 
extremely enthusiastic, 
clapping wildly, asking for 
autographs, and showering 
flowers and presents on the 
members," Gilbert said. 
"Then, students went home 
and advertised the orchestra 
to their families and 
neighbors, so our next concert 
in Otaki was packed." 

' 'The concert in Taiwan was 
also special. The United 
States had just broken 
diplomatic relations with 
Taiwan, so we were very much 
appreciated. The people just 
couldn't stop clapping. When 
we played their National 
Anthem, they sang, cheered 
and cried." 

The national anthem of each 
country was always a part of 
the concert, except in Japan. 
The Japanese people did not 
want to be reminded of the 
harsh imperialistic past they 
endured. Other countries 
were extremely pleased when 
the anthems were played. 

The orchestra gave 19 
concerts in 17 days while they 
were in the Orient. During the 
three-week tour, the 

stay in private homes and 
dormitories. This gave the 
Oriental people a chance to do 
something for America for a 
chance — providing food, 
housing, and being hosts for 
Americans in a situation where 
we needed them. 

In comparing US audiences 
with Oriental audience::i, 
Gilbert said, "the Oriental 
people are more responsive 
and enthusiastic. The idea of 
an American symphony 
orchestra coming to play for 
them was new and exciting. 
We played mostly for the 
common people who usually 
get passed up by most cultural 
events from other countries." 

Playing in the Far East 
helped the morale of 
orchestra tremendously. As 
Gilbert put it, "It's hard to sell 
the SMC orchestra in 

As a result of the tour Gilbert 
has had numerous enquiries 
about future tours, but he 
didn't mention any definite 

From all who were involved 
with trip, the Far East tour 
was acclaimed a total success, 
and Southern Missionary 
College became a common 
word in many places that had 
heard of it.

It seems every Tuesday and 
Thursday, on the way to 
chapel, it's raining. Walking 
to chapel isn't that bad for me, 
because I'm usually leaving 
the dorm at 11:13 a.m. and 
most everyone is already 
there. But when chapel is 
over, there are about 1,800 
people trying to get to the 
cafeteria before anyone else, 
and most of them take the 
route right over my back. 

Once I went to chapel in the 
rain and didn't take my um- 
brella. So many umbrellas 
were up I could walk under the 
moving tent to chapel and 
back and still have time to buy 
a loaf of bread at the VM, mail 
a letter in the post office, and 
walk by the CK and decide not 
to go in, without getting wet. 

Umbrellas are alright by 
themselves, but when they are 
in a crowd it takes a little 
patience. One day after 
chapel, I was walking in front 
of this girl, who I thought was 
getting fresh with me. But

I have noticed something 
encouraging about chapels 
this year. They are bringing 
people closer together. I've 
seen up to four people trying 
to get under the same um- 
brella, which reminds me of a 
basic mathematical principle 
that is in effect on rainy chapel 
days. The greater the square 
footage of an umbrella, the 
greater the number of friends.

Ashton Piano Recital 
to be Held on Sunday 

DDebra Gainer 

The SMC Music Depart- 
ment presents Dr. J. Bruce 
Ashton in piano recital at 8:00 
p.m., Oct. 7, in Miller Hall. 
While Ashton doesn't follow a 
specific annual recital sched- 
ule, he hasn't missed giving a 
concert in the eight years he's 
been at SMC. 

Ashton's recital will feature 
Theme and Variations by 
Faure, Sonata in B-flat by 
Mozart, and a set pf eight 
pieces from Opus 76 by 

The Brahams selections will 
be divided into two sets of 
four, which will frame the 
program at beginning and 
end. The Mozart piece is of 
special interest because it 
includes a cadenza in the last 

vation for a sonata, because 
cadenzas are usually found 
strictly in concertos. 

This recital, said Ashton, 
will not be "flashy and flam- 

boyant," but rather "rela- 
tively gentle and quiet." 

Ashton received his doc- 
torate degree in piano from 
the University of Cincinnati in 
1971. Before coming to SMC, 
he taught music at Walla 
Walla College. This past 
summer he traveled with the 
orchestra to the Far East, 
where he performed a Schu- 
mann concerto with the nr- 

He particularly remembers; 
discovering three days before 
the concert in Korea that the 
performance of a particular 
Korean folk tune was required 
at every public concert. Ashton 
got a copy of the song and 
found it too difficult to learn 
that quickly. So he composed 
a couple of simpler improvi- 
sations on the tune while 
traveling on the airline to 
Korea. With a half hour's 
practice before the concert, 
the new version of the folk 
tune was successful.

WSMC Constructs Satellite Receiver for 
National Public Radio Programming 

D Valerie Dick 

WSMC-FM broke ground 
for the construction of a 
satellhe receiving station Sun- 
day, Oct, 7. The receiving 
station, which is one of 200 
such stations being built ac- 
ross the country, will receive 
signals from National Public 
Radio (NPR) via a satellite 
orbiting over the equator. 

When asked what the re- 
ceiving station would provide, 
WSMC Manager Don Self 
said, "The primary advantage 

is that program decisipn- 
making power will be given to 
NPR member stations." The 
system will also increase the 
technical quality of programs 
received from the network. 
"Our present system is lim- 
ited in that the high frequen- 
cies associated with music 
cannot be transmitted." 
remarked Self. He added, 
"The new system will provide 
the full audio spectrum of 
music making it sound more 

World's Strongest Man to Give Chapel 

will be 1 
crease in the quantity of 
programming. ' ' Self said 
presently NPR can send only 
one program to WSMC at a 
time. With the new sysiem 
installed, WSMC will receive 
programs from the network 
through four separate chan- 
nels. Within a year there 
should be 12 channels and 
ultimately as many as 22, This 
will make it possible for 
WSMC to tape a concert from 
NPR while broadcasting a talk 
show live from the network.

Jones Resident Disagrees with Rules 


Last year it was a glaring gold, this year it's a fire engine red. 
SMC swimmers know the significance of these colors. They 
loudly proclaim to the lifeguard and the population of the pool 
that we have, in fact, paid our dollar for the honor of aquatic 

However, it's still a mystery to us why a dollar is charged for 
a round piece of felt with "elaborate" cam stitching. The 
racquetball , tennis, and basketball buffs receive no such 
privilege, neither do the joggers, yet all wear down courts and 
track alike. Why. then, are the swimmers stuck with such 
special treatment. Why must we pay for a "badge" to prove we 
are students so we may exercise, when all others are taken for 
granted and go undecorated. 

Perhaps, we could just show our ID card and be presented 
with a badge or merely flash our cards before each swim to 
prove our validity as a student. Or maybe have all who use the 
P.E. facilities pay a dollar and be granted "The Token" — the 
licensed right to exercise. 


Dear Editor: 

Recently we had an incident 
that warranted some form of 
discipline to a resident of 
Jones Hall. However, to 
coerce the will of every resi- 
dent because of one man's 
folly to obey the rules will not 
only hinder him in good 
character development but 
also the innocent involved. 
These rules I am referring to 
are the compulsory worships, 
room checks and late leaves 
for the residents of Jones Hall. 

We are adults. Give us the 
responsibility of being re- 
sponsible adults. Let us have 
our own choice to choose and 
in choosing develop a better 
character. Our character is 
our passport to heaven. The 
college should not mold the 
students' characters to be- 
come "yes" men or to blindly 
obey the rules. It is by making 
decisions, even wrong ones. 

believe now, and if we cannot 
make our choices now, how 
then, are we going to stand in 
the near future? 

Now regarding those com- 
pulsory room checks. They 
will not and cannot solve those 
problems of drinking, 
smoking, drug abuse, or 
women in the dorm. Those 
guilty will not be doing those 
things during room check; 
they will do it before or after 
room check. The faculty can 
counsel and advise those that 
need the extra push; other- 
wise, room check is a farce 
and will be sneered at by the 

Regarding television, a list 
of approved programs to view 
could be introduced which 
would require strict adher- 
ence; however, if an individual

For example, if someone

Company" or "Charlie's An-

there is no way the college can

Student Missionary Sends Greetings from Kwang-Ju, Korea 

Dear Editor: 

Greetings from Korea! It is 
3 real blessing being here. 
It's really hard to believe I've 
already been here over four 
monthsl Things are really 
going great! Kwang-Ju is a 
great city to be in, and the 
Lord is really blessing our 
work greatly here. The popu- 
lation is about 700,000. and 
the people are really friendly. 
The weather in Korea is just 
wonderful — it's just starting 
to get cool. 

Jesus sure has led my life in 
a great wayl This is going to 
be the best year of my life! 
Working for Jesus is the best 

work you can ever do! I've 
really learned to depend upon 
Christ more since I've been in 
Korea. Sometimes I don't 
know what to do in a situation, 
maybe with one of my stu- 
dents, but Jesus sure knows 
how to handle the situation! 
"Praise the Lord!" 

1 really miss SMC a lot and 
all my fi'iends, but Jesus has a 
great work for me to do here in 
Korea. If any of you ever feel 
the Lord giving you the im- 
pression in your life to be an 
SM, don't hold back. Jesus 
needs you! With much 
prayer, move forward in faith

Student Wants Remedy for "Pounded- to-Death" Library Typewriters 

Dear Editor: 

There are some definite 
problems concerning the 
typewriters in the library that I 
would like the administration 
and faculty to be aware of. 

First of all, most teachers 
require papers, reports, re- 
search projects, etc., to be 
typed. It is almost impossible 
3 hand in a well-typed paper 
using the typewriters in the 
library in their present condi- 
. If you don't own your 
1 typewriter or don't know 

of one you can borrow, you are 
usually out of luck— especially 
if you are a village student. 

The next problem is one of 
scarcity. There are abou't 
2.000 students here at SWC. 
and this means that ther« are 
about 250 students ^rer type- 
writer. Could something pos- 
sibly be done to obtain more 
typewriters so the waiting 
lines won't be so long? I have 
personally waited for as long 
as an hour for a typewriter. 

Perhaps an SA project could 
be put into effect to get more 

Concerning the condition of 
the present machines, they 
are in sad shape. There are 
five IBM selectrics and three 
(very ancient) Royal manuals 
available to students. The 
IBM's, which are used most of 
the time, are sluggish, and 
sometimes just plain nasty. 
They will sometimes add little 
extra things to what you 

typed, making your work look 
jumbled. Often certain letters 
will not type, so you must try 
several different typewriters 
before you can finish your 

I spoke to Mrs. Doherty, 
who is in charge of the 
typewriters, about this situa- 
tion. She said, "over a year 


told I 

that the IBM selectrics

true because the library is 

.classified ads, 

open 75 hours a week and this 
means the typewriters get a 
lot of use. The IBM's were 
given to the college as a gift 
from the senior class of 1975, 
and they were used to begin 
with. After four years of 
constant use the typewriters 
have practically been pounded 
to death. 

Can something be done to 
correct this situation? 
Sincerely yours,

SMC Cafeteria Caters for 
Hang Gliding Competition 

The SMC cafeteria doesn't 
always supply food only for 
non-appreciative students. In 
fact, later this month, the 
cafeteria will cater to a crowd 
of 50,000 to 80,000 people— 
the competitors and spectators 
at the American Cup Inter- 
national Hang Gliding Cham- 
pionship on Lookout Moun- 

This past spring, when a 
catering deal fell through with 
Krystal Company, the hang 
gliding organizers contacted a 
friend at Wildwood Sanitar- 
ium, whom they'd met the 
previous year. Wildwood was 
asked to operate the con- 
cession stands, but they 
turned the offer down because 
of the size of the crowd. They 
did. however, refer the organ- 
izers to Georgia-Cumberland 
Conference, who in turn re- 
ferred them to Southern Mis- 
sionary College. 

The organizers agreed to 
have SMC cater for the cham- 
pionship because many of the 
competitors are quite health- 
minded in order to be in good 
condition for the sport. Mc- 
Donalds. Arbys, and other 
fast-food chains in the area 
were turned down. It is 
expected that the competitors 
will appreciate the switch to 
vegetarian food. 

"We'll just be serving the 
same kind of food that we 
serve to the students here," 
explained Earl Evans, food 
service director. Prices will be 
somewhat higher, but that is 
necessary to cover expenses, 
not to make a profit. 

SMC will cater during each 
day of the competition except 
Saturday. Stands will be set 
up under the red-and-white 
striped tent which the College 
bought last summer to use on

Though WSMC first learned 
of the satellite in 1974, con- 
crete plans weren't made until 
1977. At that time a repre- 
sentative from the satellite 
planning office came and 
helped the station select a site 
for the receiver. After the site 
had been chosen, a team of 
technicians surveyed for any 
technical interference. 

Self said WSMC will be the 
First one of the receiver sta- 
tions to be completed in

City Now 
Parking Law 

The city of CoUegedale has 
begun to strictly enforce the 

parking a vehicle opposite the 
flow of traffic. 

This ordinance concerns 
mainly those who park in front 
of the gymnasium. All cars 
parked in front of. the gym 
must be facing north (toward 
the Village Market). Failure to 
park in the right direction will 
result in a parking ticket of S3. 
If this ticket is not paid within 
ten days, it will be increased 


The ordinance has been a 
city law for many years but 
has not been strictly enforced. 
The main reason for the law is 
that it is dangerous to pull out 
into the other lane to park. 

The city also wants to 
remind residents that bicycles 
are considered vehicles by the 
law and are required to be 
ridden with the flow of traffic. 

Those jogging along the city 
roads are requested to run 
facing the traffic and in single 
file. This is not a city 
ordinance but is suggested for 
one's own protection.

Secret Brother Finally Answers 

Dear Secret Sis, 

Sorry I've taken so long to 
reply, but you know how it is. 
I was sitting around the room 
and I didn't feel like doing 
anything, so 1 decided to write 
you back. 

Thanks for the cookies you 
sent me about three weeks 
ago. I just got them and 
they're still kind of fresh. I 
usually don't get any impor- 
tant mail, just that stuff the 
dorm sends out about missing 
worships and the letters the 
Dean of Students sends out 
about wearing blue jeans, so I 
usually don't check my mail- 
box. But I looked in there 
yesterday and found a slip 
saying I had a package at the 
desk. The desk worker finally 
found it and dusted it off for 
me. The cookies were pretty 
good. They were the first 
green cookies I had ever 

About the questions you 
asked in your first letter, I was 
a business major; I lived in 
Atlanta; and I had three

sisters. When your second 
letter came, 1 was majoring in 
biology, living in Pittsburgh, 
and I had three sisters and a 
brother. When your last letter 
arrived three weeks ago, I was 
majoring in history, living in 
Orlando, and I had three 
sisters, one brother, two 
brothers-in-law, three nieces, 
and a nephew graduating from 
the Loma Linda University. I 
will try to write back a little 
quicker next time. 

Since you are ray "Secret" 
Sister. I'm supposed to try and 
find out who you are. I have a 
few questions I want you to 
answer about yourself to give 
me a start. What is your 
major? What grade are you 

The History Teacher, a 
major history journal, has 
asked Dr. Floyd Greenleaf, 
chainnan of the history de- 
partment, to write a book 
review for the journal.

were not actually threatened, 
but the continuous outbreats 
of violence were getting closer 
to the mission located ap- 
proximately 300 miles north- 
east of the capitol, Managua. 
Also the shortage of many 
supplies made it very difficult 
to operate the clinics. 

The College' set up the 
mission eight years ago and 
has since sent students^^^nd 
funds to operate the yfuission 
for the Miskito Indians. 

SMC had planned to turn 
their mission over to the 
Nicaragua Mission in the 
summer of 1980, but because 
of civil war in the country, the 
College felt that it should pull 

out one year early, 
turned over the entire inven- 
tory and buildings to the 
Nicaragua Mission. 

The Adventist Church in 
Nicaragua had requested con- 
tinued involvement by the 
College, but after Dr. Frank 
Knittel and Dr. Floyd Green- 
leaf visited the country, they 
decided that it would be wise 
to end the student missionary 
program in Tasba Raya. They 
are. however, contemplating 
some financial assistance to 
help the Nicaragua Mission to 
operate Tasba Raya and also 
to compensate for the early 
withdrawal of SMC. 

Dr. Greenleaf feels that the 

student missionary program 
has had a marked effect on the 
living conditions of the Mis- 
kito Indians. Their health 
habits have improved; ap- 
proximately 75 people have 
joined the church; and the 
economy has grown because 
the mission provided trans- 
portation for the Indians to sell 
their produce in the citj'. 

Mike and Norma Barber, 
former directors of Tasba 
Raya are now working at the 
Adventist hospital in the Val- 
ley of the Angels, Honduras. 
The College's agreement with 
them still has one mote year to 
go, so SMC is sharing the 
financial support of the couple

When Something Good and Holy Dies 

He remembered the first 
stark moment in this place. 
His eyes had been used to the 
clear, eternal scenery of the 
desert; his lungs accustomed 
to the refreshing vitality of the 
dry desert winds. When he 
was thrust into this "cozy" 
corner, his nostrils had been 
filled with the vilest of 
stenches: his eyes, growing 
used to the darkness, reeled at 
the filth of the scene. The 
floor of the small cell, covered 
with a mixture of mire and 
straw, was to provide for all of 
his needs. 

But now, in the gross mo- 
notony of the place, he hears 
ominous sounds. In the

Religious Liberty Club Presents Issues 

DJerome Clark 

Laurel Wells, director of 
Student Finance, and Robert 
Merchant, treasurer, will 
speak to the students on 
"Federal Aid at SMC," at 7 
p.m.. Oct. 14 at Talge Hall. 
Wells will explain various 
federal programs that provide 
loans and grants to students 
and will tell how much money 
is available to SMC students 
in each program. Merchant 
will cover other federal pro- 
grams that provide financial 
assistance to academic de- 
partments such as physics, 
chemistry, biology or nursing. 

Feeling that the question of 



schools is too big to be tackled 
in one meeting, the campus 
Religious Liberty Club has 
decided to have two consecu- 
tive meetings on the topic. 

The first will be at 7 p.m., 
Nov. 1! in Thatcher Hall when 
Dr. Frank Knittel, College 
president, and Glenn McCol- 
pin, local Adventist attorney, 
will speak on "Federal Aid to 
Parochial Schools." The 
speakers will present their 
different points of view, then 
will be open for questioning by 
a panel of students and mem- 
bers of the audience. 

The next meeting will be at 
7 p.m., Dec. 9, also in 
Thatcher Hall. The film 
"Magnificent Heritage" will 
be shown. It portrays John 
Leland and James Madison 
working to produce the First 
Amendment to the US Consti- 
tution which safeguards reli- 
gious liberty.

for religious liberty. A current 
issue is labor unions. Bill

cludes an amendment to allow 
persons whose conscience 
won't permit them to join a 
labor union to pay an amount 
equivalent to union dues to a

will pass both houses before 
Congress adjourns for Christ-

Velasco Steals Men's 
Softball Championship

Velasco slipped past Tuuri 
to clinch the Men's League 
Softball Championship with a 
one-run lead in the final game 
of the season. 

Tuuri claimed the lead early 
in the game when David 
Miller was awarded a base on 
balls and later rounded the 
bases to make the first run. 
Base hits by Joshua Zaran-

two-base hit by Mike Dowell 
were also turned into runs to 
give Tuuri a 4-0 lead over

Alumni Homecoming Held This Weekend 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege's Annual Alumni Home- 
coming Weekend will be held 
Oct. 18-21 , honoring the 
classes of 1929, 1954, and 
1969. Approximately 1000 
Alumni are expected to at- 

The weekend begins on 
Thursday evening with the 
first session of the mini- 
senunar classes. The semi- 
nars will be held in two-hour 
blocks on Thursday, Friday 
and Sunday. Continuing edu- 
cation credit is available for 
those who attend all six hours. 
There will be a S3 fee for those 
receiving credit, otherwise 
there will be no charge. Any- 

one is invited to attend. 

Four seminars are offered. 
Dr. Ray Hefferlin, professor of 
physics, will give a class on 
"Getting About in the Soviet 
Union." He and his family" 
have recently returned from 
Russia, and he.will be illustra- 
ting his topics with slides and 
personal experiences. This 
will start at 7 p.m., Thursday, 
in Daniells Hall, Room 24. 

Bruce Gerhart, 
professor of English, will hold 
a seminar on "The Death of 
the Round Table." He will 
trace the history of God's 
master plan through 2500 
years of Western literature, 
art and philosophy. The 

seminar begins at 7:30 p.m. in 
Room 111, Daniells Hall. 

Ellen Gilbert, associate 
professor of nursing, will give 
a seminar dealing with that 
very common mental distur- 
bance—depression. She calls 
it "the silent complication." 
Gilbert will offer information 
on different kinds of depres- 
sion and how to deal with 
them. Starting time is 7:30 
p.m., in Herin Hall, Room 

Finally, Elder Jerry Glad- 
son, associate professor of 
religion, will offer a seminar 
on the wisdom books of the 
Bible: Proverbs, Job, Eccle- 
siastes and the Song of Solo- 
mon. Gladson feels that these 

books are the most neglected 
in the Old Testament, and he 
calls his seminar "Orphans in 
the Household of Faith." It 
begins at 7:30 p.m. Thursday 
in Room 103, Herin Hall. 

On Friday evening, Elder 
William Kuester, member of 
the honor class of 1929, will be 
the speaker for the 8 p.m. 
vespers program in the Physi- 
cal Education Center. Also 
featured will be SMC's Sym- 
phony Orchestra, which 
toured the Orient in May. It 
will give the missions empha- 
sis in music, slides and verbal 

On Sabbath morning, ser- 
vices will be held in the 

Physical Education Center at 
8:30 and 11:15 a.m. The 
speaker will be Elder Alfred 
C. McClure, president of the 
Kentucky-Tennessee Confer- 
ence and a member of the 
class of 1954. 

At 3 p.m. Saturday, the 
SMC music department will 
present a sacred concert in the 
Collegedale Church, featuring 
the band and choral groups. 

At 8 and 9:50 p.m. Saturday 
evening, the Sons of the 
Pioneers, long-time favorites 
of Western music buffs, will 
give two performances to ac- 
comodate all alumni, stu- 
dents, and community mem- 
bers. Tickets may be pur- 
chased at the Student Center.

Sons of the Pioneers to Sing Here 

As a part of the Alumni 
Homecoming celebration, 
SMC will present the western 
singing group, the Sons of the 
Pioneers, Saturday night. Oct. 
20, in the Physical Education 
Center. There will be two 
performances at 8 and 9:50 

The Sons of the Pioneers are 
probably the most famous 
country-western group in the 
entertainment world. For half 
a century, their distinctive 
harmonies have conjured up 

images of sagebrush, camp- 
fires and cowboys. 

The legend began in 1934 
when Leonard Slye, later to 
become known as Roy Rogers, 
organized the little-known 
Pioneer Trio. The original 
three later became five, with 
the new name "Sons of the 
Pioneers." Bob Nolan and 
Tim Spencer, original trio 
members, wrote for the group, 
including such Western clas- 
sics as "Tumbling Tumble- 
weed," "Coo! Waters," and 

"Room Full of Roses." 

The Sons of the Pioneers 
have appeared in more than 
300 television programs and 
more than lOO motion pic- 
tures, appearing with such 
stars as John Wayne, Bing 
Crosby and Gene Autry. They 
have sold over 20 million 
record albums, and they hold 
all-time box office records for 
live appearances in such 
places as the Salt Palace

SA Plans to Make a Deal 

DLes Musselwhite 

On Saturday night, the 27th 
of October, at approximately 
10:30 p.m., (or whenever the 
WSMC benefit is over), the 
Student Association will once 
again go into action. 

Student Services will be 
sponsoring the popular and 
well-known game show, 
"Let's Make a Deal." It is 
expected that several hundred 
students will be on hand, fully 
decked out in their simple or 
outrageous costumes hoping 
to be a contestant in the game. 
In their possession will be 
treasured items that they wish 
to trade in on a deal. 

There will be many oppor- 
tunities to win outstanding 
prizes. The value of these 
prizes range from an average 
deal of S5, S25, S50 or even 
more, all the way to the big 
deal which could be worth 
$350 or more! Of course, as in 

the television game sh&w, 
there will be many opportu- 
nities to get zonked, as well. 

Tickets for the "Let's Make 
a Deal" program may be 
purchased at the Student 
Center or the SA office for SI 
and this may be placed on 
your ID card. Only those 
ticket holders who are in 
costume will be eligible to be 
contestants. Each wUl fill out 
his name on a card and place it 
in a box as he enters the gym. 
Then the contestants will be

and good taste are always in 
order. Whether you want to 
be a contestant in the SA's 
"Let's Make a'TJi^al" pro- 
gram or simply wish to take a 
date and spectate, go by the

SA Senate Petitions Talge Deans to Change Evening Worship Schedule 

Dear Editor: 

The following letter is a 
copy of a letter sent to Dean 
Schlisner with instructions for 
it to be sent to Dean Campbell 
and The Southern Accent. It 
deals with the worship situa- 
tion in Talge Hall. 

Dear Mr, Schlisner: 

Prior to our last Senate 
meeting on Monday, Oct. 15, 
1979, several requests were 
made that the subject of the 
present worship schedule be 
put on the agenda. After 
spending considerable time 
discussing the acclaimed pro- 
blems of the present worship 
schedule, a solution was sug- 
gested and the Student As- 
Senate came to a 
decision. Before 
reaching this decision, several 

problems were pointed out by 
the Senate members. These 
are just a few of the more 
important reasons brought up 
in the Senate: 

1] Worships at 9:30 and 10 
p.m. do not allow sufficient 
choice to the residents of 
Talge Hall and overall are not 
convenient to students. 

2] It creates a problem in 
that each resident must be in 
the dorm by 10 p.m. even 
though curfew isn 't until 10:30 
p.m. It makes the 11 p.m. 
curfew for seniors meaning- 


solution as far as the majority 
is concerned. Some students 
prefer to have their own 

Reiner Proposes Solution for 
Library Typewriter Problem 

Dear Editor: 

We were fortunate enough 
to receive a copy of the letter 
written by Jane Toomajanian 
(Oct. 11) concerning the type- 
writers in the library. On 
Tuesday, Oct. 9, the Adminis- 
trative Council discussed the 
contents of this letter and the 
problem of the old worn out 
typewriters in the library. 
While the typewriters were 
provided as a gift and there 
was to be no additional ex- 
pense to anyone, yet it would 
be difficult now that people 
have gotten used to using 
them to either take them out 
or not replace them. There is 
probably no college anywhere 
that provides adequate type- 
writers for its student body, 

but in hopes of trying to 
provide this service, the Ad- 
ministrative Council offers the 
following proposal. 

The Ad Council would be 
willing to buy three typewrit- 
ers if the SA and future senior 
classes would on a rotating 
basis each provide two type- 
writers for a total of seven 
typewriters. If the needs were 
addressed on a regular basis 
by these organizations, then 
we would have at least the 
seven typewriters that we now 
have and would have them in 
good operating condition.

devotions and the morning is 
the only time available. 

4] Some students wish to 
retire early, and are not able 
to attend the early morning 
worship: therefore, they are 
not able to retire until 10 p. m. 

5] Having to attend worship 
at 9:30 or 10 p. m. interrupts 
those who wish to Jtudy, 
causing a lack of continuity, 
making it harder to start 
studying again.

thus providing even less alter-

Lieutenant Learns of Fear^ Love and War 

e war clouds were amas- 
on the horizon. Three 
young, lieutenant friends, be- 
longing to a British regiment, 
watched the developments 
pensively. One of the three 
seized with the sickening 
fear that the test of battle 
would prove him a coward. 
This fear became so dominant 
that he finally sought to have 
himself released from the 
army. His father, who was 
high in political circles, suc- 
ceeded in the task. 

Leaving the army, the ex- 
lieutenant went to Ireland 
where he soon became en- 
_ d to a charming and 
spirited girl. One day, as the 

vere talking, the postman 
delivered a small, neatly- 

ped' package. Upon 
opening it there floated out 
3 tiny, white feathers. The 
girl blurted out a startled 
laugh and then asked for an 
explanation. Honestly, he 
explained that they were sent 
by his two friends in token of 
his cowardice. The laughter 
vanished, the giri reached to 
her hat, broke oif a small. 

John mcvay 



white spray, and added a- 
nother feather to the collec- 
tion. She then turned and 
walked away without a word. 
The young man stood alone 
under the terrible weight of 
his shame. Then, he squared 
his jaw, picked up the three 
white feathers, put them in 
the box, wrapped the package, 
slipped it into his pocket, and 
hurried back to England 
where he joined the army 
under an assumed name. 

A few weeks later he was 
assigned, by the chances of 
war, to his old regiment. After 
a hard-fought battle, one of 
his lieutenant friends didn't 
return. The young man 
secured permission to go into 
the danger of no man's land 
after him. Finding his friend, 
he drug him to the safety of a 

trench. The wounded lieuten- 
ant saw him and spoke, "Tom, 
I knew you would come back. I 
knew you weren't a coward," 
Tom fumbled in his pocket and 
placed one white feather in his 
friend's hand, and he clutched 
it tight in the chill of death. 

Days passed, and in a 
charge the young man was 
wounded. Regaining con- 
sciousness, he found himself a 
foxhole with another wounded 
man. He lifted his canteen to 
his companion's dry lips and 
let him drain the last drops. 
Then, he recognized the man 
as his other lieutenant friend. 
As consciousness again slip- 
ped away, he pressed a white 
feather into his hand. 

With his painful wounds he 
was sent home. One day when 

greeted him was a beautiful 
Irish girl who wore the garb of 
a Red Cross nurse. And as he 
passed her he handed her a 
little box stained with the mud 
and blood of trenches. When 
she reached the secrecy of her 

room that night and opened it, 
she found in it one white 
feather, and she knew that the 
quitter had come back and the 
coward had become a hero. 

With the young lieutenant 
and the biblical John Mark, 
the cowardly comers of our 
lives can be transformed into a 
heroic haven for Jesus Christ. 


Ceremonies Announced for National Stairs Day 

Not many people are aware, 
but next Tuesday. October 23 
s designated "National Stairs 
)ay." It will be a day for the 
downtrodden stairs across 
America to stand-up and say 
"Hey, get off my back," 

Since SMC is world famous 
for its unique stairs on cam- 
pus, the College is planning a 
full day of activities to honor 
stairs. The Administration 
has put out a contract; I mean, 
they are looking for the engin- 
T who designed and built the 

stairs to be the guest of honor 
for the day. 

The ceremonies for the day 
will include the grand opening 
of a Halfway Station on Jac- 
cob's Ladder. The purpose of 
this station will be to provide a 
place for students to rest on 
their way to classes and also to 
administer first-aid for anyone 
needing it.

Students Get Involved in Rebuilding Home 

DTeni Prins 

The seventies has often 
been called the Age of Apa- 
thy, the "I don't want to get 
involved" era. But recently a 
small group of SMC students, 
armed with a few tools, some 
construction materials and a 
lot of determination, set out to 
prove that not everybody is 
"looking out for #1." 

When Isaac Brunson, a 
fi'eshman biology major, left

The large volunteer group 
was narrowed down to 16 men 
and 6 women who could 
devote time away from their 
studies and who had construc-

layers, carpenters, electri- 
cians, roofers, painters and 

and part of another, using the 
donated $4500 to buy con- 
struction materials, the stu- 
dents and two faculty mem- 
bers rebuilt the burned section 
and added another 450 square 
feet. They also put in new roof

The project to rebuild the

Everett Schlisner, Dean of 
Men, went to Sumter, South 
Carolina, to visit with the 
family and survey the dam- 
age. When Schlisner returned 
to SMC, he held worships in 
both dorms to ask for dona-

and volunteers to rebuild the 

"The response on campus 
was fantastic, ' ' Schlisner 
said. "I was overwhelmed by 
how the students dug deep 
into their pockets to help the 
Bransons. ' ' Approximately 
$3500 was raised between the 
students and faculty. And at 
least 90 men and 50 women 
volunteered to give their time. 
Another $1000 was donated by

and Nosoca Pines Ranch of-

Hawaiian Flagball 
Kicks Off New Season 

Days are getting shorter, 
nights dearer and crisper. The 
leaves are beginning to turn, 
and flagball season is getting 
underway. This year there are 
Men's Leagues and one 
Women's League, with a total 
of 218 participants on the 19 
s. Already the beginning 
fgames of the season are being 
played, and the teams are out 
the field practicing their 
ineuvers (and looking very, 
very good). 

Flagball is a fast, exciting 
game that requires close 
teamwork for success. If the 
term -"Hawaiian Flagball" e- 
vokes in your mind an image 
of grass-skirted savages leap- 
ing around waving flags — 
well, you ought to come and 
see for yourself what the game 
is really all about. 

Games will be played at 
5:30 and 7:30 p.m., Monday 
through Thursday.

2 - THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thuisday, October 25. 1979 



The saying "First come, first serve," seems to be going out 
of style at SMC, or so it seems whenever there is chapel. What 1 
am referring to is the way people are "ushered" out after the 
meeting — there is a mad rush for the door. Instead of waiting in 
turn for their aisle to be dismissed, everyone jumps up at once 
and swarms the "card-catcher," as if aU the rows were being 
dismissed together. 

Those who come first usually choose a seat near the front so 
they can leave first and make it to dinner before the crowds 
gather at the cafeteria front door. But now everyone seems to 
think that they should be ushered out first, even if they came 

The "card-catchers" have been instructed to withhold the 
chapel cards of those trying to leave before being dismissed, but 

Administration Calls for Energy Savings 

this is impossible when everyone jumps up and surrounds the 
confused "catcher" throwing the cards toward him from all 

I found this chaos particularly embarrassing the Thursday 
f aul Anderson spoke for the CABL chapel. Anderson has strict 
rules of conduct for the boys who live in his youth homes. For- 
tunately he left the platform before the SMC students were 
dismissed, which saved him from being appalled by the 
immaturity of supposedly sophisticated college students. 

This melee doesn't happen only in chapel; it also takes place 
in church. The amazing thing is that even a few of the faculty 
members are guilty of rushing out of church before they are 

It seems that a good solution for the chapel part of the 
problem would be for the Administration to move the chapels 
back to nine o'clock next year. However, in the meantime, let's 
act like college students. This rudeness is embanassing and 
has to go! 

Dear Editor: 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege is facing a real challenge 
regarding energy movement 
on our campus. 

You are aware that the 
Federal Government is re- 
quiring that we control our 
heating and cooling system by 
maintaining a cooling mini- 
mum of 78 degrees and a 
heating maximum of 65 de- 
grees. This involves all of us 
working together to control 
this runaway cost. At the 
present time, residence halls 
are exempted ft-om this re- 
striction; but if we do not hold 
down both usage and cost, the 
situation could get out of hand 
and all buildings could pos- 
sibly come under this 
regulation at some later date. 

During the year 1978-79, 
through the concerted efforts 
of staff and students, we were 
able to reduce our usage of 
electricity by 833,671 kilowatt 
hours over the previous year. 
Nevertheless, our cost in- 
creased by $70,982. With 
prices continually increasing 
as they are today, you can see 
that any saving in usage is 

My appeal to you students 
at this time is to help us 
reduce our electrical usage 
wherever and whenever you 
can. By doing this, you have 
an opportunity to hold tuition 
costs down at SMC. 1 know we 
can count on you to rally 
behind us in 

program not only for our 
school, but hopefully for the 
country itself. You have heard 
this over and over again, I 
know, but I urge you to 
seriously consider our situa- 
tion and to work with us in 
every way possible. 

Thank you so much,

Dear Editor: 

I just received the Sept. 20 
edition of The Southern 
Accent. I really enjoyed 
reading it as I am now 
attending Loma Linda Uni- 
versity, and I miss SMC a 
great deai. 

One of the things I miss the 
most is the fellowship and fun 
of the intramural sports pro- 
gram we had. But as 1 turned 
to the last page of the paper, I 
discovered that the program 
has apparently taken a turn for 
the worse. 

wish to blame anyone. I only 
wish that the P.E. department 
would try to look at the 
intramural program as a very 
important part of the students' 
life on campus, not just an- 
other class or service 

I hope the differences can 
be solved (I hope they have 
been by now), for when you 
leave SMC, memories are 
about all you have time for. 
Shouldn't they be good ones?

doesn't handle all the calls. 

David Ferris, senior, biology, Windsor, Vt.: On Friday and Saturday nights it's 
virtually impossible to get out unless you leave the phone off the hook and dial a 
number real quick once you get a line. 

David Creamer, junior, business management. South Lancaster, Mass.: Friday 
and Saturday nights the system is so clogged that people calling me long 
distance from Massachusetts don't get through until around 1 a.m. 

Ken Neet, junior, psychology, Pittsburgh, Kan.: Sometimes when you dial 9 or 
9-7 to get out to Chattanooga, it messes up. You hang up to try again and it calls 
you back. Another thing — long distance connections never seem to be any good. 

Darlene Hallock, junior, behavioral science, Harrison, Ark.: I've been talking 
long distance before and have gotten cut off. Other times the lines get crossed 
somehow and I can hear other people talking on the phone or else they hear me. 

Janiel Sorenson, freshman, nursing, CoUegedale, Tenn.: I'm a villager and it 
seems like whenever I try to call the dorms, the lines are busy. Sometimes it's 
really hard to get through, I'll get a busy signal for hours and then later discover 
that nobody was on the phone.

Teacher Reduced to Tears by Dumb Questions 

If you have ever sat through 
a class where the teacher has 
just finished explaining what 
will be required for a book 
report or a term paper, you 
know the agony of sitting 
through the dumb questions 
that follow. 

The other day I was in a 
class where this happened. I 
don't want to embarrass the 
people involved, so let's just 
say it took place in Dr. 
Benjamin McArthur's ten 
o'clock section of American 
History. What follows is an 
excerpt of the questions 
asked, and how the professor

Dr. McArthur began to cry. 
"If we use correct spelling 
will we be given extra credit?" 
'No. But I'll give you a 

gold star on your report card if 
you do." 

"Would it be a good idea to 
turn this paper in on time?" 
asked a student who had 
walked in late and had no idea 
what was going on.

GC Council Votes on Publishing, Gambling, Marriage 

It was recommended by a 
vote of 170 to 70 to counsel the 
Southern Publishing Associa-

in the Annual Council meeting 
held at the General Confer-

Modem efficient and high-

east coast and the Pacific 
Press Association in Mountain 
View, Calif., for the west 

The delegates also took a 
strong position against all 
games of chance and insisted 
that gambling is a "no-no." 
They have spelled out the 
church's reasons why mem- 
bers should not take part in 
state lotteries, raffles, chain 
letters, bingo games and all 
contests involving elements of 

"The pleasure obtained 
from winning is accompanied 
by pain and deprivation on 
the part of those who lose, 
which is contrary to high 
Christian standards." G. 
Ralph Thompson, vice-presi- 
dent and committee chairman 
of this item said. 

Tlie basic motive in gam- 
bling is to acquire resources 
without labor and without 
paying for value received. 
The church feels to indulge in 
this practice generates selfish- 
ness which is the wrong spirit 
for the follower of Christ. 

This position is not to be 
confused with the prudent 
management of property such 
as paying for fire or accident 
insurance. Insurance does not 
create a risk. The risk of loss 
is already there with or with- 
out the insurance. 

An addition was made in the 
list of fundamental beliefs as 
found in the Church Manual 
concerning the nature of man. 
This list of 27 doctrinal items 

with supporting Bible texts 
includes the basic beliefs of 
most protestant churches. Ex- 
ceptions include worshipping 
on Saturday, what happens at 
death, the second coming of 
Christ, baptism, and the 
Lord's Supper. 

Information concerning 

marriage and the family has 
also been added to the doctri- 
nal instruction for baptismal 
candidates in that section of 
the Church Manual. It 
stresses the life-long commit- 
ment to fidelity and moral 
purity, and the use of the 
family unit, where true love 
and respect exists, plus the 
influence of the church and its 
schools for the accomplish- 
ment of these goals. 

The reorganization of Afri- 
can affairs will bring the 
French-speaking members 
there into a closer working 
relationship. Relocating of the 
three regional offices that 

the church's work on 
ill be taken up 
later by the respective com- 
mittees involved. 

Worldwide membership in 
the Adventist church num- 
bered 3.201.592 at the end of 
June this year. "The 
churches in South America, 
Inter America, and North 
America house 50% of this 
total," said F. Donald Yost, 
director of Archives and Sta- 

Income wise, the members 
in North America give three- 
fifths of the total funds that 
flow into the church. This 
represents a per capita giving 
of S662.86. 

The 332 delegates repre- 
senting administration from 
the States and overseas have 
been in session since October 
9. Their work will come up for 
ratification at General Confer- 
ence scheduled for Dallas. 
Texas, in April 1980.

Thursday, October 25, 1979 THE SOUTHERN ACCENT - 5 

Mobley Talks About Harvest Experiences 

aierri Prins ' 

DTeni Prins 
"I think any student who has 
been in college a year or two 
ought to take a year off and do 
something constructive," says 
Tony Mobley, a sophomore 
music major here at SMC. 
"Taking time out for yourself 
will make you grow. And 
when you come back to college 
your priorities and goals will 
be different." 

Tony's advice comes from 
experience because last year 
he didn't go to college but 
toured all over the US and 
Canada playing the piano and 
singing with the Lincoln, 
Neb., based gospel-singing 
and witnessing group. Har- 
vest Celebration. 

As Tony and I chatted 
outside Jones Hall amidst the 
vivid autumn colors, I asked 
why he decided to'join Harvest 
Celebration. An academy 
friendship and continued con- 
tact with group director, Ver- 
non Starette, placed the idea 
in his head. But it took much 
sincere prayer and a con- 
viction that this was what God 
wanted to finalize Tony's 

Harvest Celebration is com- 
prised of 9 men and 4 women 
who travel constantly in a bus. 

churches (both SDA and non- 
SDA), and anywhere else they 
can share the love of Jesus. 

Of all the places that they 
visited, Tony said he enjoyed 
singing at non-Adventist 
churches the best. "The non- 
SDA churches seemed to have 
more receptive, enthusiastic 
Christians. They were inter- 
ested in the group as people 
and after we sang they would 
share their love for Christ and 
excitement about His soon 
coming with us! Most of the 
large non-Adventist churches 
had a small church atmos- 

phere. 1 feel like I could go 
back to visit and find many 
good friends at many 

"Visiting other churches," 
Tony said, "made me realize 
that soon all these denom- 

broken down and we'll be able 
to see each other in heaven 
just as fellow Christians." 

I asked Tony if there was 
ever any problems or arguing 
between the group members. 
At first all he could do was 
throw back his head and 
laugh. "Weil." he said, still 

work better with a group. I 
can function as part of a unit." 
The group spent quite a bit 
of time in Canada and 
northern California, which 
were Tony's favorite places on 
the tour. He said he liked 
these areas because they had 
beautiful country and were 
less densely populated than 
other places they toured. In 
comment about the Canadian 
people, Tony felt they were 
generally more cultured than 
Americans and dress very 
neatly. He also thought they 
public-spirited and 

grinnmg, "we were just like a 
big family of brothers and 
sisters — and as you know, 
brothers and sisters do fight 
once in a while. But seriously, 
when you travel with a group 
constantly you can't avoid 
problems. At school if you 
don't like someone, vou can 
avoid them. You can't do 

that c 

i bus. 

'We had group therapy 
often. This gave 
a chance to air any 
differences and express their 
real feelings. These 
were so good — and at first, 
difficult — for me. Now I i 

took more pride in their 
country. But without a doubt, 
he likes the United States best 
and said, "We have a great 
country; we shouldn't take it 
for granted." 

Harvest Celebration stayed 
in northern California for six 
weeks as part of a special 
program involving cooperation 
between church members and 
the group to reach non- 
Adventist community mem- 
bers. The gospel singing of 
the group was the method to 
attract people to come to 
church, then the church mem- 
bers followed up this concert 
with opportunities for people 
to sign up for stop smoking 
clinics and Bible studies. This 
gave the church members a 
chance to get to know their 

Also, the group spent a lot 
of time with evangelistic 
meetings. At these meetings 
they would sing at night and 
during the day visit people 
and invite them to attend the 

Singing isn't all the group 
ever did, though, during 

meetings where thev staved in 
one place .awhile. They 
usually challenged the local 
church schools to tournaments 
in volleyball, baseball, and 

Special time with God in 
worship was essential to their 
performances. "Before every 
performance we would prac- 
tice 45 minutes and have a 45 
minute worship, ff we missed 
worship, the concert didn't 
seem quite the same," Tony 

One of the best benefits of 
his year with Harvest Cele- 
bration, Tony said, was the 
time he had for Bible study. 
Every morning on the bus the 
group had a quiet hour just for 
Bible study. Also, he had 
plenty of time for other 
reading while they were 

Tony's advice to his fellow 
students is to start now to 
make a commitment for 
Christ. "After seeing the 
conflict going on in the world 
right now, I know Jesus is 
coming soon. I saw the 
overflow of new members in 
many churches I visited. The 
time we've been told about 
of people flocking to the 
churches is already here. We 
need to make a commitment 

Heaven holds a special e.i- 
citement for Tony now be- 
cause he'll get to see those 
people that his year in Harvest

success. To me the name

heaven after Christ's harvest. 
It's going to be a BIG cele- 
bration and 1 can't waitl" 

Tony's plans for the future 
are to go to graduate school 
after SMC and continue 
working hard to develop his 
own unique musical style. 
Tony said, "I believe the Lord 
expects us to be creative. He 
gives us the ability and talent 
to create. And when we are 
creative, we can experience 
something of God. because He 
is the Creator." 

Before 1 left I asked Tony if 
he would recommend his ex- 
perience to everyone. He said 
that the constant traveling and 

weren't for everyone — "God 
has to choose you and lead you 
to where he wants you. I was 
really homesick the first 
month; it was difficult. But by 
the second month the bus was 
home, and I kept in touch with 
my family and friends by mail, 
I believe this experience was a 
stepping-stone in God's plan 
for my life, and I would gladly 
repeat it if God told me to." 
As Tony was walking down 
the sidewalk to continue his 
busy day of studies and prac- 
tice, he turned around and left 



me with one 

more thought.

Bunyan and his Pilgrim 's Pro- 

"As I walked through the 
wilderness of this world 1 
lighted on a certain place 
where was a den, and laid me 
down in that place to sleep; 
and, as I slept, I dreamed a 
dream." And behold, in my 
dream, I saw one seeldng with 
all his might to climb out of a 
deep ravine into which he had 
fallen. The name of it was the 
Valley of Death (Rom. 6:23). 
As he struggled to scale the 
rugged walls, I saw one 
named Pastor, standing at the 
top of this dreaded canyon. 
Presently, he let down a thick 
rope and bid Seeker (for that 
was his name) to grab the rope 

John mcvay 

and cling to it. After a great 
struggle on the part of both, 
Seeker reached the top. I then 
heard Pastor exhort him in a 
firm and fearful voice that, if 
he would find that for which 
he sought, he must go to a 
place called College Dale. 
Having gained the true direc- 
tion, Seeker began his jour- 

After many days and un 
numbered hardships (not the 
least of which was the trek 

through the Swamp of No- 
Money) Seeker beheld a sign- 
post declaring that this was 
the outer edge of College 
Dale. With joy in his heart 
and an added spring in his 
step, Seeker continued his 

One feature I have not 
heretofore mentioned was the 
great load Seeker carried. 
Never have I seen a backpack- 
er sally forth with such a cargo 
as rested on Seeker's back,

and that without the aid of a 
frame or the comfort of even 
one padded strap. 

In the distance Seeker es- 
pied another traveler and 
quickened his stride to catch 
up with him, but alas, the 
heavy burden held him back. 
So, Seeker shouted with great 
vigor, "Friend, waiti I long 
to travel with you." The 
young man ahead slowed his 
pace and soon he and Seeker 
walked side-by-side; where- 
upon, they fell into conversa- 

Seeker: My name is Seeker 

and I am come from the Valley 

of Death seeking, at the place 

called College Dale, how I 

might properly continue my 

journey and rid myself of this 

great burden. 

Parti' er [pronounced partee 

Ir]: My name is Parti'er, and 

am from Funtown. I am 

returning to College Dale after 
a weekend at home. 

Seeker: What of this place 
called College Dale? 

Parti'er: It's alrightl There 
are lots of really neat people, 
and as long as you don't take 
things too seriously I think 
you'll find it a nice area. Also, 
if you get tired of it, there's 
this great little spot, not too 

Seeker [interrupting]: But, 
Parti'er, will I there find relief 
from this burden? 

Parti'er: That does look a 
bit heavyl Say, if you'll 
excuse me, I must hurry 
on— I've already used up my 
late minutes several times 
over, and I must get back. 
Maybe I'll see you sometime! 
And with that, Parti'er was 
off, and Seeker stumbled on 
with downtrodden face. (To

The example on this page 
will show you how the balance 
due is calculated. Note that 
the sample balance is $324.30. 
At the time of the September 
statement, this student had a 
balance due of S8.19 from the 
August statement and an ad- 
vance deposit of $579.23 . The 
student will be charged 
5170.77 to bring his advance

total of $750.00.

Come and watch the world's 
best and worst skiers preform 
on the beautiful slopes of the 
world's mountain ranges from 
the crevassed glaciers of Brit- 
ish Columbia to the exotic and 
little known ski slopes of

Aspen and the Bugaboo 
Mountains are just some of 
the resorts touched on. 

Jean Claude Killy. and 
Stein Eriksen are just two of 
the Olympic champions seen. 

John Jay, the great-great- 
great-grandson of John Jay, 
the first Chief Justice of the 
United States, has been film-

He has traveled and filmed

SMC Student 
Center to 
Get Facelift 

n Melissa Smith 

The Student Center is get- 
ting a face lift this fall. "The 
object of this project is to 
upgrade and make more func- 
tional the Center to students," 
said Testing and Counseling 
Director K.R. Davis. 

The Cube Room stage has 
been sectioned off into three 
interviewing rooms for job 
placement interviews, and the 
center room may also be used 
as a small committee room. 

Window shades have been 
hung in the game room and 
three new ping-pong table 
boards have been purchased. 

The whole Center is being 
repainted a soft beige and 
plans have been made to 
refurnish the lounge. 

Another renovation will be 
made in the Student Associa- 
tion office. "Repapering. re- 
painting, and recarpeting will 
be the major changes." said 
SA President Les Mussel- 
white, "and if funds permit, 
some new furniture." 

2 - THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thursday. November 1. 1979 



The dictionary defines "referee" as "one qualified to pass 
critical judgement." This may be true in some locations; 
however. Random House failed to send someone down to get 
c pinions of those taking part in the intramural program at SMC. 
C nsistent inconsistency seems to be this years motto for the at the football games. While not all referees are involved, 
mcst of them have gotten their whistles continuously stuck in 
thielr throats. 

The} just don't seem to be familiar with the rules, let alone 
il-,eir role in the game, which is strange when they're coming 
from an officiating class. 

Referees, its been noticed, have without fail turned out to be 
tciolly confused and confusing — changing decisions as many as 
three times on ONE call — early whistles, late whistles, no 
whistles, penalties that don't seem to be anywhere in the rule 
book, and so on. 

It's also been observed that most of these slip-ups occur 
during the women's games. 

Do the referees care at all about the reputation that is 
surrounding them? Don't they want to do an adequate job? 
Have some of them even read the rule book? 

The athletes involved don't clown around, and they expect 
the same kind of behavior from the refs. 

They not only have a responsibility to their class and 
instructor, but to those who play as well. They are there to 
properly and fairly officiate the event, not just to throw yellow 
linen and blow whistles and have fits at being corrected by 
others. It's their proving ground, so let the proving commence. 

Of course, not every infraction can be seen and called by the 
referee, but, I suggest they at least read the rule book in order 
to know one when they see it.

Dear Editor: 

As a former student of

feedback I am receiving as far 
away as Orlando. My concern 
stems from the unrest felt in 
the hearts of those letters on 
the worship services and the 
discomfort of their scheduled

Leftys Want Rights 

Dear Editor: 

We belong to a special 
minority — a minority that does 
include quite a few people on 
campus, more, in fact, than 
many realize. 

Call us leftests. leftys. left- 
outs or wierd, but we are an 
unescapable and inevitable 
part of society. Yet we are 
forced to survive in a right 
handed world, even though 
the majority of the population 
read and write from left to 
right. Usually we adapt well 
and compensate by being 
more ambidextrous, but there 
is one area in which we can't 
adapt, and that is using the 
desk-chairs in the majority of 
the classrooms.

Many times the less struc- ever you are, but, I think the 
majority of the students at 
SMC are happy to be in a 
school where Christians are 
the ruling body. 

I agree with Scott Aycock 
(Oct. 4), the men should be 
allowed to conduct a morning 
worship service. Why not let 
the Student Government lead 
out in the morning. If they 
only wanted to get together 
and sing. ..fine! Atleastthose 
there in attendance would be 
sincere, wanting to be there 
and enjoying the fellowship. 
I feel that the less concrete 
format would be very popular. 
As an example, our Sabbath 
School has been able to grow 
from an original eight mem- 
bers to an average of thirty- 
five in a year and a halfl Our 
members like our class be- 
cause of its flexible format. 
The institution of a morning 
worship service (with worship 
credit) might help ease the 
tension caused by the sched- 
uled 9:30 and 10 p.m. ser- 
vices. It would at least give 
you a working alternative. 

They are almost impossible 
to write on when your elbow is 
hanging unsupported in air 
and you are twisted around in 
uncomfortable knots trying to 
efficiently scratch down notes. 
Life is confusing enough for us 
without this added obstacle. 

Perhaps a few left-handed 
desks could be placed in major 
classrooms where the desk's 
writing surface is impossibly 
small and located so far to the 
right. This small addition 
would make note-writing and 
test-taking a lot less cramped 
and a lot more legible.

Chronicles of the Campus Kitchen Revealed 

If there's one place that gets 
more flack than any other on 
campus, it has to be the 
Campus Kitchen. With a 
nickname, "Greasy Spoon." it 
is an easy target for de- 
meaning comments. So it is 
my purpose to dedicate this 
article to the CK and it's many

two comdogs and some french 
fries, please." 

The girl behind the counter 
looked up from her writing 
with a gleam in her eyes, 
reached over the counter, 
grabbed me by the collar and 
lifted me off the ground. 
Face to face she gritted 
through her teeth, "Can't you 
read. Buddy? We're out of

me to the floor. 

"Well I'm sorry," I con- 
tinued. "I'll take a cheese 

omelet then." 

She wrote the order and tore 
off the receipt and shoved it 
into my hand without looking 
up or saying another word. 

Then I got a couple of milks

Pre-Registration Set for 18th 

□ Melissa Smith 

Pre-registration for the 1980 
winter semester will be held 
Sunday, Nov. 18, in the Physi- 
cal Education Center. 

Students may pick up their 
passes from Monday, Nov. 12, 
to Friday, Nov. 16, at the 
switchboard in Wright Hall. 
Also the revised class sche- 
dule may be picked up at the 
switchboard starting Nov. 13. 
The passes will be issued for 
the following time periods: 
senior, 8:00-9:30; freshmen, 
9:30-12:00; juniors. 1:30-3:00, 
sophomores, 3:00-4:30; and 
special students, 4:30-5:00. 

For each first-year student, 
the data sheet will indicate 
whether the student needs to 
take remedial work. These 
statements have been updated 
since first semester to include 
transcripts or ACT scores that 
were received this semester. 
These data sheets will not. 

however, reflect the courses of 
students who are presently 
enrolled. Mid-term grades 
will also be listed on the 
registration packets, so the 
adviser may easily determine 
if a student is enrolled for the 
remedial courses needed. 

Students may drop or add 
pre-registered courses until 
Dec. 20 or after Jan. 7. 
Because the grades and copies 
of the students' second semes- 
ter programs will be run on the 
computer during Christmas 
vacation, no changes may be 
made on the second semester 
schedules during that time. . 

Because some who pre- 
registered last year did not 
return and there was no way of 
determining this until the 
teachers reported class ab- 
sence, "Validation of Enroll- 
ment" cards will be issued 
starting Jan. 7 at Wright Hall 

Marie Shorter to Present 
'Success Image^ Seminar 

□ Kimberly Wygal 

"Projecting Your Success 
image," a seminar for the 
residents of Thatcher Hall, 
will be presented Wednesday, 
Nov. 14, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. 
and Thursday, Nov. 15, from 
5:30-7:30 p.m. in Thatcher 
Hail chapel. 

The seminars will focus on 
the secrets of creating and 
developing a successful self 
image. Marie Shorter of 
Atlanta, former high fashion 
model and television person- 
ality, will conduct the semi- 
Women participating in the 
seminars will learn to present 
themselves effectively and 
develop those inner qualities 
they desire. Shorter will focus 
on all the factors that enter 
into the image women want to 
project— how to dress, walk, 
talk, and develop inner confi- 
dence. She will also provide 
guidelines women can use in 
both business and home,- 
Emphasis will be placed on 

how to build and project a 
personality in a positive man- 
ner, and how to project confi- 
dence and poise. Shorter's 
theory is that how a person is 
perceived is an extremely 
important part of getting a job 
applied for, promotions on the 
job, and success in social 

Shorter will help the Chris- 
tian woman present herself to 
the world as an example of 
both inner and outer beauty so 
as to enhance their personal 
effectiveness in today's chal- 
lenging world. 

Shorter will also hold a 
seminar Thursday, Nov. 15, at 
7:45 p.m. in the Thatcher Hall 
chapel, A small fee will be 
charged for this. Also she will 
be the guest speaker at the

"I urge all students to take 
the class schedule to every

Instructors will initially ad-

Award winning lecturer 
Curt Matson brings "Switzer- 
land — in 4 Seasons" to SMC. 
Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. in the 
Physical Education Center. 

Starting in the springtime, 
Matson coaxes the audience 
into a Swiss mood with a brick 
mountain climb up the Mat- 
terhom near Zermatt, then 
onto the highland meadows to 
view the unchanged pastoral 
life of the dairy farmer. The 
mountain towns of Wengen, 
Bern, Zurich, Geneva and 
Interlaken are included in the 
spring and summer itenerary. 
An electric train ride up 
Lauterbrunnen Valley to Jung- 
fraujoch, reaching an altitude 
of 11,300 feet in the midst of 
the Bernese Oberiand Alps, 
concludes the season. Here, 
in the highest train station and 
hotel in Europe, he pauses to 
survey the Alpine room of the 
European continent. 

The Swiss journey continues 
with a brief, perilous boat trip 
to the center of Rhine Falls, 
then up the Rhine River to 
Basel to join the Basler Fast- 
nacht, similar to the New 
Orleans Mardi Gras. 

High above the cify of 
Lucerne, even in the summer, 
there is ice on the lakes of 
Alpine passes like Susten, 
Simplon and Furka. The 

Rhone Glacier changes very 
little regardless of season. 
Leaving the Switzerland artic 
behind, he travels to the 
sub-tropical Tidno, where in a 
Mediterranean-like climate 
change is also minimal.

Curt Matson, with an im-

Victim of Umbrella Thieves Learns Distrust

Since I'm a freshman, I just rainy winters which occur

inactivity and life just seems blue. 

College doesn't always have to consist of books and 
worries — getting out and systematically and regularly partici- 
pating in some form of exercise will defog that brain and 
; your energy level. All those students who already 
; daily, will tell you that tension is released, stamina is 
increased, you need less sleep and you just feel better all over. 
If depression is your problem, try getting out and running or 
swimming or whamming a racquet ball for a while. After this 
exercise, you will have a better self image and a lot of your 
troubles will seem not as important. Do this frequently, and you 
will seldom have those down moods. 

The College offers many opportunities to exercise. A heated 
pool, open at convenient times, a paved and lighted track, 
always available, quite a few tennis courts, racquetball courts to 
slam out frustration, basket ball courts, and the weight room in 
Talge Hall for both men and women. If none of these suits, try a 
peaceful walk through the beautiful Tennessee hills. 

Don't have the time? You don't have time not to do your body

The collection was originally 
begun as a laboratory project 
for Dr. Steen's natural history 
class. Each student was to 
collect and maintain a live

keep notes on it throughout its 
life cycle. For example, 
students have found moth and

Snakes make up the larger 
part of the collection of crea- 
tures in Hackman Hall. This, 
is because, says Dr. David*

biology, two biology stu- 
dents — David Youngberg and 
Ken Nelson — have a particu-

observed are crickets, spiders, 
and praying mantises — one 
hangs heavily from the top of a 
twig, its fat green abdomen 
looking full of eggs. 

The most lively members of 
the zoo are the white mice. 
They live in a cage by the 
window, merrily reproducing 
and growing and running 
round and round inside their 
squeaky exercise wheel, all 
unaware of their eventual fate 
as a snake dinner. 1 watched 
the copperhead unconcernedly 
swallow three of them at one 
sitting, each bigger around 
than his own neck, making 
bulges in his length which 
gave him the disconcerting 
look of a skinny man with 
three vague pot bellies. 

Other attractions are a rat, a 
scorpion, and a hive of bees. 
The rat, belonging to Biz 
Fairchild. is black and white, 
with a naked tail and sharp 
yellow teeth. His name is 
Rudyard and he's always hun- 
gry. Next to- his cage, a deep 
dish makes a home for a 
scorpion. It also used to be 
home for two other scorpions, 
before they managed to es- 
cape one night, climbing on a 
paper towel carelessly 
dropped in their dish. The 
bees are working busily, as 
bees are supposed to do, 
filling a wax comb behind an 
observation glass panel with 
rich-looking golden honey. 

Nearby, blue guppies swim 
through an aquarium of some- 
times green water. Dr. Steen 
has set up a natural aquarium 
system, using no filters or 
pumps, but rather just sun- 
light and fresh air. A natural 
terrarium for salamanders and 
other amphibians is planned 
for the near future. 

Dr. Steen requests students 
not to kill or let go the various 
creepy crawlers they may 
happen to find. Instead, they 
should bring them to 
Hackman Hall where they can 
be added to the natural history 
collection. The snake-keepers 
are especially looking for coral 
snakes, rattlers, scariet king 
snakes, water moccasins, and 
and garter snakes.

Pilgrim^s Progress Completed at the Heart 

Seeker's journey through 
College Dale was sow many 
days old and total despair was 
expressed in each belaboured 
step. But there approached 
one to Seeker dressed in fair 
attire. He wore trousers of 
white, a shirt of white, and, in 
the brisk autumn air he had 
domied a sweater — of white. I 
looked closer and noticed that 
shoes, belt, and yes, socks 
were all of white. But, though 
white, a strange white it was 
indeed. Clorox nor Ooroz II 
could such a white as this _ 

John mcvoy 

procure. The cfoth from which 
this all was made was also 
without earthly peer. Never 
material of such a weave hath 
any loom of earth perceived. 

So attired, this one ap- 
proached and spoke thus to 

True-Friend: You must be 
Seeker. I am True-Friend, 

Lee on Campus to Promote 
Adventist Colleges Abroad 

though you may have heard of 
me by my other name, Share- 

Seeker: I am pleased to 
meet you. I am verily as 
you have said — Seeker. 

True-Friend: Would you be 
rid of that great burden? 

Seeker: Yes {and to him- 
self, "here we go again"). 

True-Friend then drew close 
and spoke in low and earnest 
tones that I, their content, 
could not tell. After con- 

versing so for some time, they 
came to a small ascent which 
was crowned by a wooden 
cross. As a Christian I thought 
I recognized the place, and 
looked for a signpost to read, 
"Calvary," or "Golgotha." 
Strange that these words upon 
my eyes then fell, "The Heart 
of College Dale." 

True-Friend was pointing to 
the cross and speaking to 
Seeker in tones now a bit 
louder for their triumphant 

". . .'twas here all this took 
place. If thou were the only 
one. He, this work, would 
have begun. . ." 

With that I saw the burden 
begin to loose from Seeker's 
back till it tumbled out of sight 
and upon some unseen place 

did light. And then what a 
transformation occurred. 
Seeker's tags melted away 
and in their place appeared 
the same shining raiment 
which True-Friend wore. 

I watched Seeker as he now 
continued his journey through 
College Dale, light-hearted 
and free. His journey was not 
long until he came to a large 
hill dubbed, "Graduation." 
Before its final crest, he 
turned and to a small group 
gathered there spoke thus: 

"These words, my fel- 
lows, mind: 

Do seek that ye might 

that place whereat my 
burden fell, 

ah, yes. The Heart of 
College Dale."

Sunday, Nov. U, was the 
grand opening date for Taco 
Fiesta, the new Mexican res- 
taurant which offers the option 
of beef or vegetarian entrees. 
Festivities for the opening 
included radio station WDOD 
broadcasting live from in front 
of the restaurant; Southern 
Missionary College's noted 
guitarist Steve Martin was 
there as their strolling mari- 
acha, and tied in front under 
the Taco Fiesta sign, was 
Little Lolita, a small, gray 
burro, decked out in a som- 
brero with holes for her ears 
and a fur blanket with the 
Taco Fiesta logo on it. 

For years Taco Bell has 
been the fast-food haven for 
Adventists. There they could 
order bean burritos and tos- 
tadas, taking it for granted 
they weren't getting any 
meat. That is, until the word 
was out that Taco Bell was 
adding lard to their beans. 

With this problem in mind. 
Dr. Donald Fillman and Stan 
Schleenbaker conceived Taco 
Fiesta over two years ago and 
incorporated it in 1977. They 
wanted to build a restaurant 
that Adventists could eat at 
and be assured that they were 
not getting any meat. 

The menu at Taco Fiesta 
includes tacos, burritos, tos- 
tadas, frijoles, and Fiesta 
burgers. Unlike Taco Bell 
they have included cheese 
enchiladas, chili and nachos 
with cheese or bean dip. Their 
chips are fried daily. 

Mr. Stan SchJeenoaker, 
manager of Taco Fiesta, said, 
"Only three items are pre- 
pared with beef and those 
three can be ordered vege- 
tarian upon request. SDAs 

can feel comfortable eating at 
Taco Fiesta because great 
precautions have been taken 
to assure our people that they 
are eating vegetarian in every 
aspect. Even the chili is made 
with 100 per cent vegetarian 
protein. The enchiladas are 
available only in cheese." 

Desserts are included in the 
Taco Fiesta menu, too. Fro- 
zen fruit yogurt, soft vanilla 
ice cream and sopapillas are 
provided "to make sure neo- 
ple can feel comfortable and 
satisfied by having a complete 
meal including a dessert." 

To those who are concerned 
with cleanliness, it is to be 

observed that the cashiers do 
not handle the food. And for 
added convenience, a drive-in 
window is provided.

Orchestra Features Guest 
Violinist in Fall Concert 

The SMC Symphony Or- 
chestra will present its annual 
fall concert on Saturday even- 
ing, Nov. 17, at 8 p.m. in the 
Physical Education Center. 

The orchestra, under the 
direction of Professor Orlo 
Gilbert, will feature guest 
artist Lilian Wen, a 16 year- 
old violinist. Wen began 
studying violin at the age of 
five. She has since studied at 
the Staatliche Hochschule Fur 
Musik in Germany and at the 
Boston University. 

Now an international per- 
former. Wen has appeared in 
several states as well as 
Germany, Taiwan, China and 
Canada. During the last two 
years, she has performed as a 
soloist with the Boston Pops 
Orchestra, the Worchester 
Festival Orchestra and the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra. 

As- guest soloist with the 
orchestra. Wen will be playing 
the finale from Saint Saens' 
Concerto No, 3 for violin and 

Also featured will be Robert 
VandeVere, trombonist, son 
of Dr. and Mrs. Wayne Van- 
deVere of Collegedale. He 
will perform Marcello's So-

and strings. 

Featured at this concert will 
be a first for the SMC Sym- 
phony Orchestra — the per-

movement symphony, "The

Mendelssohn. "This per-

Opinions _ 

student Delighted with SA Fall Festival 

For some people it's the fellowship, for others it's the food, 
but the best thing I lite about Thanksgiving is T.V. 

After three months straight without a telly spitting out 
mindless drivel to ease my tension-tightened mind, I lose 
myself in excellent cartoons in the morning, football games 
during the afternoon and "The Mouse on the Mayflower" and 
"Peanuts Thanksgiving Special" at night. 

Holiday TV is good therapy. It soothes and lulls me into a 
relaxed mood by aUowing me to dwell on simple, easy-to- 
understand plots and dialogues. Miles Standish loves Priscilla 
Aldin, the Mouse finds a home in the church belfry, and 
everyone gets invited to Charlie Brown's grandma's house for 
Thanksgiving dinner. 

It's all so nice and uncomplicated to sit down in front of a TV 
in a big armchair for a few hours. 

Think about this when you turn on yout television over the 
holidays. Then come back to school refi:eshed and 

As you coop yourself up to study for finals, remember

Dear Editor: 

I look forward to "our 
Accent" each week, and al- 
though a Junior who faithfully 
reads Dickerhoff, and other 
assorted opinions. 1 have nev- 
er shared my own with you. 
Let me change that. 

What happened to the re- 
porter sent to cover the Fall 
Festival? What? You say he 
drowned on hisway across the 
creekl In light of that disaster 
let me share the following. 

The atmosphere was per- 
fect! Many hands worked 
hard creating it. I was there 
early and I know. The 
"stage" was dressed in hay 
and nestled amone the bales 
were perfectly formed pump- 
kins. The trees were hung 
with bobbing pumpkin faces, 
and carved pumpkins lent 
their glow to the night. 

Hands were held and laugh- 

ter shared as we relaxed and 
enjoyed happy music, good 
tood, a tunny movie and great 
costume show. (The movie 
required your own happy end- 
ing.) The bonfire blazed as it 
should, and we cheered as the 
feat of lamp pole climbing was 
expertly demonstrated! 

Let's talk costumesi I saw 
camera flashes, was there no 
film? I just know if you had 
been provided pictures of that 
cute little Chattanooga Hoo 
Choo train, Mr. and Mrs. Bozo 
with their crops of red hair, 
the lovely Christmas package 
and Superman, etc. you would 
have printed them! (There 
was so-o-o-o much space de- 
voted to PDA). Congratula- 
tions to Dracula for being 
grand prize winner and for 
arriving on the Accent's front 
page. How did that happen, 
was he thirsty? 

Gainer Finds Defense of Public Affection Unacceptable 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to comment on 
what I consider to be the 
appalling response, verbal 
even more than written, to 
Terri Prins' report of Neroli 
Hills' survey on PDA. Isn't' 
there a Chinese proverb 
somewhere that says some- 
thing like "He who is most 
guilty speaks loudest in 

Let roe point oat a couple of 

things that the defenders of 
PDA seem to have overlookeo. 
(Of course, it is said that ' 'love 
is blind.") 

I) PDA in the survey was 
defined as displays beyond 
hand-holding, ann-entwining, 
and single kisses. Very few 
people object to these normal, 
natural, and expected dis- 
plays; it is the prolonged 

/ \

arn Missionary College ! 

kissing of various sorts, exag- 
gerated body-to-body contact, 
and other even more passion- 
ate expressions that are con- 
sidered objectionable. 

2) In spite of what "the 
affectionist" claims, there are 
in fact many places on campus 
besides the dorm porches and 
lobbies and daylit sidewalks 
where physical intimacies can 
be shared. Empty classrooms, 
overhanging trees, the dark 
fields behind the Plaza, the 
biology trail — these are only a 
partial listing of the places 
available for private displays 
of afi'ection, also known as 
PDA, and, I trust, equally as 
satisfactory to the parties in- 
volved as the public variety. 

3) Contrary to expressed 
opinion, it is not only those 
who've never had dates or 
boyfriends who disapprove of 
PDA. Both the conductor of 
the FDA survey and the writer 
of the article have steady 
boyfriends; one is engaged. 
There are many other girls in 
Thatcher who are also in love, 
but don't consider it necessary 
to advertise their physicaf 

4) I find that explicit PDA is 
unacceptable not only from a 
Christian standpoint of mod- 
esty, but also from a social 
standpoint of good breeding. 
People of good taste and social 
status are able to realize the 
advantages of behaving with 
proper decorum in public. And 
if, as Mr. Osbom suggests, 
the majority of students ' on 
campus is not opposed to 
PDA, well, we all know that 

"might doesn't" necessarily 
make right." 

In conclusion, I suppose 
that "Prof Rima is right. 
Nothing ever changes in 
Happy Valley. Some people 
will continue to insist on their 
right to bore, embarrass, or 
disgust the rest of the public 
with their displays of bedroom 
behavior. And some people 
will continue to be moved to 
public displays of irritation by 
this sort of vulgarity. 

I had a wonderful time I

Dear Editor:

personally feel that PDA has 
been over emphasized." 

There is a proper place and 
time for PDA, but Thatcher

That's all that I'm going to 
say about PDA , but let's 
remember what this college 
stands for. SMC is a Christian 
college with a goal to set. If 
everyone would look in his 
SMC catalog on page 2, 
bottom half of paragraph 2, it 
says, "The purpose of Chris- 
tian education is to assist the 
students in knowing and do- 
ing, with Christ's help, the 
will of God more perfectly. 
Only through Christ can man 
be restored fully as he was

It all begins Sunday when the

slightly smudged and slit by razor

grumbles about article shortages,

Recruitment Looks Forward to Good Season

sport at SMC. Dr. Ron

What do you think about

the Blue Jeans Banquet? 

Brian Rogers, junior, accounting, Orlando. Fla.: I like the 
way they have it once or twice a year — but if a girl wants to ask a 
guy out, I think that's OK. 

Mona Atkinson, sophomore, elementary education, Roanoke, 
Va.: Doesn't matter to me, I don't think there's any big deal 
about a girl asking a guy out if she wants to. 

Bruce Kryger. sophomore, chemistry. South Lancaster, 
Mass.: Yeah, I think it's a very good thing. But if done too 
frequently it could be aggravating. 

Kathy Campbell, associate senior, nursing, Collegedale, 
Tenn.: 1 wish village students could find out about things 
sooner. It's good that girls can have a chance to ask out guys 
because it lets them know they're interested. 

Lance Powell, sophomore, biology, Clinton. Mass. : I don't 
mind at all, really, to tell the truth. Nowadays women want 
equality. If they want to ask a guy, then they ought to pay. 

Elbert Tyson, IB, junior, communications. Pine River, Wis.: 
Yes, I like for them to ask for a change. It gets us out of our 
usual rut, but guys ought to ask most of the time. 

Sandra Schiaw, freshman, undecided, Scottsdale, Ariz.: It's 
OK once in a while, but it sort of ruins things. I don't think guys 
appreciate getting asked out by girls all the time. 

Alesa Fisher, junior, dietetics, Joelton, Tenn. : I love it! The 
girls should be given more opportunities to ask guys out, 
especially if the SA designated certain weekends where it would 
be proper for girls to ask guys out.

year he plans to play a more

Club, Shenandoah Valley. I'll 
even go out on a limb and say 
that the Triple "B" League, 
Forest Lake, might finally 
provide some talent." 

Men's dorm coach Schlisner 
says that last season there 

were too many players who 
were picked off. He, with 
trainers Evans and Christman, 
plan to make the guys ptay a 
little closer to base in the 
up-coming season. 

Women's dorm coach Run-

forward to next season with

Two Thanksgivings 

Many pairs of nicely-shod 
feet pass noiselessly over the 
plush, pastel-blue carpet. The 
fine-patterned wallpaper glis- 
tens a shimmering reflection 
of the gold and crystal master- 
piece that dominates the cen- 
ter of the room. Beneath the 
impressive chandelier is a 
long and well-laden table. Its 
silver serving platters and as 
yet unfilled plates create their 
own gleaming rendition of the 
fixture hanging above. 

The laughter fades and a 
moment of silence ensues 
before the portly man at the 
head of the table intones, 
"Father God. we thank You 
for the bountiful blessings of 
another year. We deserve not 
the abundance that You have 
bestowed upon us. and we, on 
this special occasion, would 
turn our hearts to You in 
gratitude and praise. Amen." 

John mcvay 

Then talk and laughter 
erupt as generous piles of food 
distort the sparkling image on 
each plate. 

Many pairs of bare feel plod 
noiselessly over the pale- 
green carpet of grass. The 
glowing orb on the horizon 
signals the close of another 
day. One pair of feet stumble 
and a limp body falls to the 
ground. The others, as if by 
cue. slump down together. 
Dark eyes peer aimlessly out 
of receded sockets. 

They all lie together in one 
heap — an ugly collection of 
emaciated limbs and bloated 
bellies. But for depth, the 
place could be their grave. 
There is silence — an eery 
quietness. No one laughs, no 

ing voice, "Can't anyone

DE. O. Grundset 

The Christmas season will 
be innaugurated with the an- 
nual Tree Lighting Cere- 
monies on Tuesday evening, 
Nov. 27, at 7 p.m. A brief 
program will consist of carols 
and Christmas songs by the 
Die Meistersingers, seasonal 
music by the Brass Ensemble, 
piano numbers by Carole 
Deny, and Christmas greet- 
ings from President Frank 
Knittel. Following these, 
Santa Claus will arrive atop 
; of Collegedale Fire De- 

partment's finest trucks. 
Santa will bring goodies for all 
and will officially turn on the 
lights. After that, refresh- 
ments will be served. 

The campus tree will be 
transported to the mall in front 
of Wright Hall and set in place 
on Monday afternoon, Nov. 
19. It will be strung with 
lights the following Monday so 
as to be in readiness for the 
tree lighting festivities. The 
lights wili glow each night 

thereafter until Jan. 1. Also, 
each night from Nov. 28 
through Dec. 20, recorded 
Christmas music will be 
wafted across the campus 
between 6 and 7 p.m. — cour- 
tesy of WSMC-FM. 

The annual Christmas Band 
Concert will be presented on 
Saturday night, Dec. 1. This 
year's concert, under the di- 
rection of Robert Anderson, 
promises to be sprightly and 
invigorating, one of the mu- 

sical highlights of the year. 
Sometime during the program 
the "true" Santa Gaus and

entitled "Mandalas" {man- 
dala is an Eastern word for 
prayer). These pieces are all 
circular and deal with unity as 
a symbol of wholeness. 

Within the exhibited col- 
lection will also be the work of 
Theodore Prescott. Prescott's 
work is a two-part sculpture 
cast in hydrocal, a hard form 
of plaster. One piece of his 
work shows Eves's hand 
grasping the apple and the 
other shows Christ's hand

Prescott writes to the viewers, 
"I have tried to dramatize the 
relationship between rebellion 
and redemption by isolating 
gestures that are similar in 
form but radically different in 

The art pieces will be on 
display by Dec. 1. Other 
media will also be repre- 
sented, including print- 
making, pottery, and painting. 

The course, MDLG 304, is 
designed to give students an 
acquaintance with the great 
authors of those parts of the 
world speaking French, Ger- 
man and Spanish, with a little 
attention to Italian and Rus- 
sian. (The readings are of 
course in English.) It is meant 

to be a generally broadening 
course, opening new vistas 
especially for those who have 
so far studied only English 
and American literature. A 
few class sessions will be 
devoted to films. 

Masterpieces in Translation 
counts toward the literature 
category in the general edu- 
cation program. It will be 
taught at 9 a.m. Mondays, 
hWednes^ays and Fridays. 

A Few Hints 
from Student Finance 

To help alleviate the long waiting time in the Student 
"" offer the following suggestions: 

Finance Office, 

1. Don't be afraid to tell the receptionist why you are 
there. It could be that either she or the secretary could 
help you and you would not have to wait to see a 

2. Try to keep your meeting with the counselor to 10-15 

3. If you have made an appointment, be in the office on 
time. If somebody else is waiting and you have not arrived 
by the scheduled time, then the other student is sent on to 
the counselor. 

4. Feel free to call the office to see if a counselor can see 
you, if you have not made an appointment.

up to take care of the crowds. 

At the present time SAWS 
is aiding in the operation of 
two of the 16 refugee camps. 
The two camps are built to 
accomodate 20.000 each; how- 
ever, 200,000 are crowded into 
each. It is requiring 1000 tons 
of food daily to feed the 

starving people. 

Thirty medical personnel 
are at the camps at the present 
time to treat the malaria, 
malnutrition and beriberi. 
Another team was sent to 
Thailand last Sunday. 

This relief project supported 
by SAWS, church Worid Ser-

2 - THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thursday, December 6, 1979 



Today is a sad day in the Accent office, yet it is a happy one. 
We are halfway through the number oi Accents we have to print 
this year. But we are losing four members of the staff — Terri 
Prins, Terri Turlington, Debra Gainer and Ken Nelson. 

Terri Prins was always willing to write a feature for the paper 
even though she was only the proofreader. There were also 
times when she would help create an attractive page that was 
very appreciated. She also deserves a lot of praise for taking all 
the personal slander she received around campus for the article 
that she wrote on PDA. 

Terri Turlington has slaved away every Sunday afternoon 
typing all those classified ads and a portion of the articles for the 
paper. A special thanks needs to be said for the weeks she had 
to type the articles threfe times because of machine difficulty. 

Brunson Grateful to Caring Students 

jDear Students of SMC: 

I cannot find words to 
express our gratitude to you 
all. A simple thank|^eems sp 
inadequate. I never thought it 
would matter to anybody what 
happened to me. Fortunately 
I was wrong; you've shown 
that you care what happens to 
your fellow man. 

If anyone were to ask me to 
define the word "Christi- 
anity," there are three words 
that come to my mind — "Love 
In Action." I would use the 
exact words to describe the 
students at Southern Mission- 
ary College. 

Miss Hilda Fern Remley 
once told me that Southern 

Missionary College is a school 
of caring; I agree totally. 
Thank you all for caring so 
much for me and my famUy. 

When I had to leave school 
and come home to see about 
my family after the fire. I was 
really depressed and my heart

what you all were doing back 
at SMC to help us, lifted the 
burdens off our shoulders. I 
was so overwhelmed. Just to 
think tbat so many students

for me and my family, made 
me feel like the six-million 

For those of you who contri- 

buted your time, money, and 
your energy, and for those 
who desired to, but for some 
reason could not, a heartfelt 
thanks. Special thanks to 
Dean Schlisner. Dr. Barrow, 
Dean Christman, and the stu- 
dents who did the work. 

Thank you all for the dona- 
tions, clothes, furniture, and 
most of all for your prayers.

Mascot "Buddy" Needs Proper Home 

Dear Editor: 

We have a little friend on 
campus who enthusiastically 
greets us every day and is a 
fine companion. He is good 
natured, well-mannered and 
brings us joy and helps to fill 
the gap for all our "friends" 
we have had to leave at home. 

We are referring to the 

black* and brown dog who 
delights many on this campus. 
Lots of students view him as a 
type of mascot and enjoy his 
eager company. 

We have heard that if not 
claimed, he will be taken to

end up being destroyed. This

PUC to Conduct Tours 
of China This Summer 

Having sponsored three 
successful Study Tours of 
China this past summer, Pa- 
cific Union College will con- 
duct similar tours to the 
Peoples' Republic of China 
throughout the summer 
, months of 1980. 

The tours will enable par- 
ticipant's to evaluate the 
personality of China at this 
important stage of its devel- 
opment. Attention will be 
given to their world-famous 
historical sites — the Great 
Wall, the Forbidden City, 
archaelogical finds, folk festi- 
vals, and agricultural and 
industrial structure. . 

"Special emphasis will also 
be given to China's educa- 
tional and medical programs. 
Recent concessions and ac- 
commodations to various reli- 
gious groups will also be 
noted." says tour director, Dr. 

Four stereos were recently 
purchased by the Student 
Association to be placed in the 
Student Center. These will be 
hooked up the first part of 
January so that people can 
bring their own records and 
tapes and listen to them in the 
Student Center Mountains. 

Twenty headsets have also 
been purchased. The desk 
workers will operate the 
equipment that is connected to 
headphone jacks located 
throughout the Mountains. 
The money for the system was 

donated last year. 

Monday evening the Stu- 
dent Senate voted to use some 
of last year's excess funds and 
additional contributions to buy 
audio equipment for use at SA 

The Senate voted to pur- 
chase a Kodak movie pro- 
jector, Bose loudspeakers and 
a Pioneer amplifier. The 
equipment, which retails for 
S2890, only cost the SA 
S1644.50 because of the dis- 
counts and contributions. 

It was felt that in pur- 

chasing the equipment, it 
would eventually save the SA 
money that they would have to 
pay Audio-visual to rent the 
equipment. It would also be 
easier to hold programs on the 
weekend without making ex- 
cessive prior arrangements. 

"We are utilizing contri- 
butions and the students' 
money for services to the 
students," stated SA Presi- 
dent Les Musselwhite. 

The new equipment will be 
used at the SA Christmas 
party this Saturday night. 

Elmer Herr. 

Each tour will spend from 
12-15 days in China, and will 
include the nation's capital 
city of Peking as well as 
several other leading cities 
and scenic areas. Bilingual 
interpreters and tour guides 
will accompany the groups 
throughout their travels in the 
Far Eastern country. 

Applications are now being 
accepted for the available 
visas to participate in this 
educational experience. Col- 
lege credit is available to those 
who are interested.

Club is also jointly sponsoring 
the party. 

At the Literature Evan- 
gelism Club meeting on Tues- 
day, Nov. 13, 65 students 
attended. Dr. Jerome Clark 
announced the new class of 
Christian Salesmanship in- 
structed by Elder Henry Fish.

with the slide-cassette pre- 
sentation, "So Send 1 You." 

Tim Leffew was chosen to 
replace Julie Payne as 
Secretary-Treasurer of the 
club. Payne resigned because 
she will be in Orlando with the 
nursing program. 

Other planned activities for 
December are a Sabbath 
School program on Dec. 15 in 
Summerour Hall with Tom 
Day superintending and a club 
meeting Dec. 11, featuring the 
sHde-cassette program "Pre- 
pare to Meet your Prospect." 

The National Endowment 
for the Humanities through its 
newly-expanded Youthgrants 
program will offer more than 
100 awards throughout the 
nation this fall to students and 
other young people in their 
teens and early twenties to 
pursue independent projects 
in the humanities. 

These federal grants offer 
up to $2,500 to individuals and 
up to $10,500 to groups. They 
are intended primarily for 
those between the ages of 15 
and 25 who have not com- 
pleted a.aderaic or profes-, 
sional training. While the 
program cannot provide 
scholarship support or finan- 
cial aid for thesis work, un- 
dergraduate work which 
seems assured of public ex- 
posure can be supported. The 
humanities include such sub- 
ject areas as history, ethnic 
stmiies, folklore, anthropol- 
ogy, linguistics and the history, 

Youthgrants have been 
used by young people to carry 
out a wide variety of projects 
such as exhibits of documen- 
tary photographs, printed or 
audio-visual records of local 

history, and films on anthro- 
pological subjects. 

Another aid available 
through the Student Finance 
Office is the Supplemental 
Edi-cational Opportunity 
Grant Program. SEOG is for 
students of exceptional tman- 
cial need, who without the 
grant would be unable to 
continue their education. 

To apply, you must be 
enrolled at least half-time as 
an undergraduate or voca- 

tional student. Graduate stu- 
dents are not eligible. The 
SEOG grants between $200 
and S1500 per year. The 
SEOG may be received up lo 
four years. The total available 
for a four-year course of study 
is $4000. 

IF you are selected for an 
SEOG, your educational insti- 
tution must provide you with 
additional financial assistance 
equal to the amount of the

Civil War Battle Relived in Donated Letter 

has been revived 
the famous Civil War ship, the 
Monitor, now settled on the 
ocean bottom under 220 feet of 
water off Cape Hatteras, 
North Carolina. Divers and 
archeologists, with the help of 
tiny research submarines, 
have extensively photo- 
graphed the underwater site, 
cleared away sand and debris, 

"The letter is in 
smudged brown inl< 
on yellowed paper, 
written in a lovely, 
old-fashioned hand." 

and recovered a glass mustard 
bottle, a signal light, and a 
piece of hull plating. 

The revived interest in the 
ironclad Monitor has been 
followed_up^ by the recent 
donation to McKee Library of 
a letter hand-written by a 
Union soldier to his wife. The 
letter gives an eyewitness 
account of the battle between 
the Monitor and Confederate 
ironclad Merrimac, which took 
Mace on March 9, 1862. 

The letter, dated March 12, 
1862, was written by John 
Ethan Rust, from Company I 
of the Indiana Volunteers, to 
his wife at home in Valparaiso, 

"Dear Wife... Your 
husband had to dodge 
some of the shells 
though in no dan- 

Indiana. The letter was 
passed down to Glenmoore 
and Lee Carter, grandsons of 
John Rust, who were bom in 
Dallas, Texas. Glenmoore 
Carter is now retired in Col- 
legedale. A member of the 
,SMC Committee of 100, Car- 
', ter volunteered to donate the 
letter to the McKee Library 
when he learned of the large 
collection of Civil War mate- 
rials it holds. 

The handwritten letter is 
now ensconced on the "third 
floor of the Library, in the 
Lincoln-Civil War Collection 
room. The letter, inside a 
glass case, is in smudged 
brown ink on yellowed paper, 
written in a lovely, old-fash- 
ioned hand. It's surrounded 
by old Ciyii War history books. 

drawings of the ironclad Moni- 
tor and its battle with the 
Merrimac, and an account of 
the 1862 battle from the 
Encyclopedia Americana. The 
letter can't be touched now, 
because the old paper is too 
fragile, but it has been tran- 
scribed into typed copy for 
anyone to read. 

It begins: "Dear Wife; I 
have taken my seat this morn- 
ing to give you the particulars 
of the fight at this place 
believing that you would be 
interested in it as your hus- 
band had to dodge some of the 
shells though in no danger." 

The letter goes on to tell of 
several ships that came steam- 
ing down the Elizabeth River 
from Norfolk, Virginia, toward 

"The shot fired at 
her struck her, but 
glanced off without 
injuring her in the 

Rust's regiment stationed on 
the shore of Chesapeake Bay. 
"One of them is called the 
Merrimac, that same vessel 
which the secesh (the Seces- 
sion Confederacy) said, when 
finished, would clean out all 
the Yankee's ships in Hamp- 
ton Roads." Rust described 
the Merrimac as "all under 
water except the roof which is 
the shape of the roof of a 
house and all covered with 
plated iron making it bomb 

All day the Merrimac re- 
mained in the harbor^ WTeak-_ 
ing havoc on the wooden 
Union ships, while the shot 
fired at her "struck her, but 
glanced off without injuring 
her in the least," and the men 
on shore could only look on 
helplessly. It was "sad 
work," reported Rust. The 
Union ship Congress found 
that "it was no use to try to 
cope with such a formidable 
adversary and the white flag 
soon ran up denoting surren- 
der of the Congress." 

Later the Yankee ship Min- 

"We could see the 
terrible nnonster lying 
at Se wall's Point 
eight miles from 

nesota arrived on the scene. 
"It was the intention of the 
Minnesota," wrote Rust, "to 
run up to the secesh vessel 
(the Merrimac), grapple her 
with grappling irons, holding 
her in such a position that she 

could not do anything and 
then scald her out with hot 
water.. .it is the general im- 

"The most splen- 
did sight I ever held 
as the flames burst 
forth, lighting the 
country for miles 

pression that she would have 
succeeded if she had not met 
with the misfortune of running 
on a sand bar." 

The battle ended as night 
drew on, but "still the Min- 
nesota kept firing at her 
antagonist as though she was 
determined to make an im- 
pression on the minds of the 
crew if she could not on the 
boat." That night the Con- 
gress caught on fire from the 
shells poured into her and 
"while she was burning." 
■wrote Rust, "made the most 
;splendid sight 1 ever beheld as 
ithe names burst forth, 
lighting the country for miles 

Meanwhile, on the shore, 
the Union forces had their own 
well-being to worry about, as 
they thought they would prob- 
ably "be attacked on land by 
General Magruder who had 
threatened this point more 

But the next day, which was 
Sunday, March 9. 1862, the 
_tide turned. "As the sun 
arose with all its splendor and 
the mist had arose off the 
water we could see the terrible : 
monster lying at Se wall's 
Point eight miles irom camp 

evidently preparmg to renew 
her work of destruction. But 
this time," Rust notes with 
evident satisfaction, "she 
would be met with a vessel 
which would fight her with far 
different success than those 
did the day before." 

This new vessel was the 
Monitor, ' 'completely under 
water except her guns which 
are surrounded with heavy 
iron impregnable to all shots 
and shells that can be made." 
When the Merrimac saw this 
new opponent, she was "tak- 
en on surprise for they viewed 
her for awhile, but soon they 
came to the conclusion to 
fight." And fight they did, 
"like demons," said Rust. He 

"The Monitor had 
the advantage for she 
was the faster to 


and the other men on shore 
soon saw "that the Monitor 
had the advantage for she was 
the faster to fight" and could 
circle round the Merrimac, 
ramming and shelling her in 
unprotected spots- "which 
made her reel and act as 
though she did not like it." 

The battle lasted for five 
hours, and at the end of it the 
Merrimac "could hardly tra- 
vel" and had "taken flight up 
the Elizabeth River." The 
men on shore were grateful. 
Rust felt that "had not the 
Monitor arrived so opportune- 

ly the Merrimac would have 
shelled us out of camp and 
Magruder would have at- 
tacked us. In our retreat 
perhaps I would have been a 
under the ground. 

"All that remains 
of the Monitor is a 
hulk on the ocean 

In reality, the battle was not 
a conclusive victory for the 
Union forces, because the 
Merrimac was not damaged as 
irreparably as Rust and his 
fellow-soldiers would have 
liked to have thought. The 
battle was significant, how- 
ever, in that it was the first to 
be fought between the new 
ironclad ships. 

Neither lasted long after the 
historic encounter at Chesa- 
peake Bay- The Merrimac 
was scuttled in Norfolk two 


being captured by the Yankee 
forces. And the Monitor sank 

Hatteras the following New 
Year's Eve. Now all that 
remains of the Monitor is a 
barnacle-encrusted hulk on 
-the ocean floor, a few artifacts 




brought to the surface, and oid

The Fourth Wiseman 

[with apologies to William 
Barclay 's paraphrase of an 
anonymous author] 

His name was Artaban. The 
mystic star beckoned and he 
followed taking with him a 
sapphire, a ruby, and a price- 
less pearl as gifts for the King. 
He was riding hard to meet his 
three friends at the agreed 
place. The time was short; 
they would leave if he was 
late. Suddenly he saw a dim 
figure on the ground before 
him. If he stopped to help he 
would miss his friends. He 
stayed and took time to ensure 
the feverish man's healing. 
But, he missed his three 
friends and their caravan. He 
was forced to sell his sapphire 
to hire his own camels and 
bearers for the desert journey. 
He was sad because the King 
would never have his gem. 

Artaban finally came to 
Bethlehem, but again, he was 
loo late. Joseph, Mary, and 
the Baby had gone. Herod's 
soldiers were roaming the 
streets. Their captain came to 
the door-of the home where 
Artaban was staying — the cry 
of a baby boy could be heard 
inside. He stood in the 
doorway, tal! and dark, with 
ihe ruby in his hand and 
bribed the captain not to 
enter. The child was saved. 

John mcvay 

the mother overjoyed, but the 
ruby was gone. Artaban was 
sad because the King would ■ 
never have his ruby. 

Artaban spent years wan- 
dering in search of the King. 
More than thirty years later he 
came to Jerusalem. There 
was a crucifixion that aay. 
When Artaban heard of the 
Jesus being crucified, He 
sounded mysteriously like the 
King, and Artaban hurried 
towards Calvary. Perhaps his 
peari, the loveliest in all the 
worid, could buy the life of the 
King. Down the street came a 
girt fleeing a band of soldiers. 
"My father is in debt," she 
mourned, "and they are tak- 
ing me to be sold as a slave. 
Save me!" He hesitated, but 
then Artaban wistfully took 
out his pearl and offered it as 

All of a sudden, the skies 
darkened and a terrible earth- 
quake erupted. A flying tile 

hit Artaban on the head. He 
sank half-conscious tn the 
ground. The giri pillowed his 
head on her lap. Strangely, 
his lips began to move, "Not 
so my Lord. For when saw I 
thee anhungered and fed 
thee? Or thirsty, and gave 
thee drink? When saw I thee a 
stranger and took thee in, or 
naked and clothed thee? 
When saw I thee in prison, 
and came unto thee? Thirty 
and three years have I looked 
for thee; but I have never seen 
thy face, nor ministered to 
thee, my King." 

And then, like a whisper 
ft-om very far away, came a 
soothing voice, "Verily I say 
unto you. Inasmuch as thou 
hast done it unto one of the 
least of these my brethren, 
thou hast done it unto me." 
And Artaban smiled in death 
because he knew the King had 
received his gifts

Doing • Some Praising 

What's that? 

Praise Magazine. 


Praise magazine. . .it's put 
out by Campus Ministries. 

Oh yeah? Lemme see one. 

There's a pretty interesting 
story on page three. 

Kinda small, I'sn 't it? 

Yeah, I suppose. I think 
that's supposed to make it 

Get lost easy, wouldn 't it? 


I've never seen it around 
before. Is it going to be a 
regular thing? 

Could be, but I've heard 
they've been having some 
problems with it. 

Oh yeah? Like what? 

Just can't get any stories or 
something like that. Seems 
they're pretty picky about 
what they want to put in it. 
Don't want it to become 
another Review. 

What's that? 

Oh, never mind. I heard 
they need an editor again. 
Their last one can't do the job. 

No kidding? Already 
flunking out, huh? 

Well, can't keep up with 
school and a paper at the same 

This doesn 't look like it 'd be 

It's not really; just have to 
be motivated to do it. Guess 
he's got other things that take 

Don't I know. . .So what are 
they going to do? 

Well, first of all they gotta 
get some kind of staff. Seems 
like right now all they have is 
one or two people. 

No kidding. Guess that 
could gel a little monotonous. 

Not only that, but one 
person's ideas get used up 
pretty quick, and then all 
that's left is the same old 
things over and over. Not too 
good for quality. 

Yeah. I've seen that before. 
So what 's the holdup? Sakes 
alive, they 've had all se- 
mester! Why didn 't they get 
something together earlier? 

Beats me. I figure things 
just got out of hand before 
anyone realized it. Things do 
have a way of creeping up on 
you. Besides, you know how 

these college publications are. 

Yeah, for sure. Guess it'll 
fold up, huh? Same old story. 

Well, I don't know. You 
know, this is a pretty neat 
Christian school, but out of all 
the papers handed out on the 
campus there's not much in 
the way of an organized 
religious magazine. Now 

I'm not talking about book- 
learning religion, like who did 
this and why. I mean some- 
thing that'll really encourage ■ 
people and help them realize 
that their faith isn't useless in 
this world. I think we need 
something practical. 

Listen to you! Sound like a 
theo already. 

Yeah, yeah, I know. But 
don't you think a paper like 
that would do some good? 
Don't you feel down oc- 
casionally and really get a 
boost out of finding out that 
else went through 
thing and came out 

Well sure, that's okay. But 
that'd take a lot more doing 
than just a little thing like this. 
You're talking about some- 
thing bigger. 

1 figure you've got to start 
small before you can get 
anywhere. This f raise deal is 
just a beginning. 1 think that 
if it could get swinging for the 
rest of the year, why, maybe 
next year it could be some- 
thing bigger. No one's going 
to back an operation that 
always fails. It's got to be 
shown that it WILL work. 
There's still enough time left 

Sounds like a lot of work to 

Yeah, I'm sure it is. The 
most work is just sticking with 
the crazy thing. Following it 
through to completion each 
month. That can get tedious. 

Hey. if you're so gung-ho on 
this thing, why don 't you go 
see about being the editor? 
You said they're looking for 
another one. 

I've thought about it, but 
look here. That's a lot to do. 
Why, I'd just about have to do 
it in the spare minutes I have 
between classes. 1 don't see 
how I could take it on and still 
get my work done. 

What this thing needs is 
organization. 'Someone to 
kind of oversee it. That 
wouldn 't take much time. 

Yeah, that could be a pro- 
blem. Being split between 
two big jobs you wind up not 
doing a good job on either. 

Not much time, but a lot ot 
desire to get the thing done. 
It'd have to be something 
you're motivated to do. 

What's this motivated 

Well, you know. You've got 
to get some satisfaction out of 
domg it, out of the actual 
work. Lots of people like the 
idea of their name in print, but 
not so many like getting it 
there. It can_be tough. 

Well, I figuie what they 
need to do is prowl the English 
department and grab one of 
those up and coming Accent 
editors-to-be and get them to 
doit. It' d be great experience 
and if they do a good job. why, 
that'd be good PR for an 
election campaign. 

Aw, that'd just be com- 
mercialism. You've got to 
want to do good work for the 
sake of good work, not just to 
climb a ladder. Besides, good 
editors aren't always English 
majors, you know. 

Yeah, but commercialism or 
no, at least they'd have an 
editor. And besides, they 
might be able to incorporate 
doing the magazine into kind 
of a school sponsored thing, 
like the Accent. 

Yeah, I suppose so. But 
who? Most people just don't 
have the time to get some- 
thing like that done. Can you 
think of anybody? 

Not right off hand. 
Guess they're back in the 
same boat, huh? 

Why don 't they advertise or 

be lots of folks interested. 

Possibility. Definite pos- 

Maybe we ought to make a 
suggestion to them, huh? 
Who would we see? 

I suppose the present 

That goofus! Do you really 
think he'd do anything about 

It's probably the only alter- 

Yeah. . .me. 

Uh, sorry about the cracks, 
just kidding, of course. 

Of course. 

Well, what do you think 
about the idea of advertising? 

Might have merit. Guess 
we'll have to see. ■ 

Yeah, well. Hey. I gotta 
run. . .classes you know. 

Yeah, I know. 

Hope you find someone to 

Yeah, thanks. I'm sure I 


Ydah. sure. Maybe set 
aside a little area in the Accent 
or maybe put out a special 
edition of this thing and let 
people know what's going on. 
Probably the reason why 
nothing 's happening is be- 
cause nobody knows anything 

Now that could be. 
So maybe give a little space 
and tell 'em. I'd bet there' d

Health Service Gives Tips for Safe Travel 

UEleanor Hanson 

Student Services > 
to have a terrific i 
wants to see you return second 
semester. With your safety in 
mind they have prepared this 
article which you will probably 
agree is a review of what you 
learned in driver education or 
what Mom and Dad have been 
telling you all along. But, 
have you noticed that when 
you review a subject when 
you're a few years older, you 
can sometimes gain new in- 

Did you know more than 
1,000 Americans are killed by 
motor vehicles every weekl 
Ten thousand more are in- 
jured every day. 

What can be done about 
this? Engineers and other 
researchers are tackling the 
problem of improving roads 
and vehicles to reduce acci- 
dents. Physicians, hospitals 
and other health and safety 
agencies are seeking ways to 
improve emergency medical 
care after the accident to 
reduce injuries and deaths. 
Behavioral scientists are 
studying the human factors 
that contribute to driving er- 

with ourselves. As a driver 
you need to: know the rules of 
the road, practice courtesy, 
respect the rights of other 
drivers and pedestrians, un- 
derstand the capabilities of 
the vehicle and its limitations, 
keep your car in top running 
condition and follow principles 
of safe driving. 

Equally important, you 
need to be constantly aware 
that your health and state of 
mind directly affect your driv- 
ing skills. Before you switch 
on the ignition, ask yourself 
this question; Am I feeling 
physically well, mentally alert, 
and calm? 

Those of us who think we 
drive with self-control may 
occasionaly slip into day 
dreaming. It's so tempting on 
a lovely day to overly enjoy the 
scenery as we drive the free- 
ways. It would be so easy to 
fail to notice the unsuspected 
move of the driver ahead of 
you. But you really do need- to 
give your biW attention to the 
two-ton missile you are hurl- 
ing into space at whatever 
speed you choose. 

The chronically handi- 
capped driver is well aware of 
his condition and has learned 
to adopt to his handicap. Had 

you ever thought . that you 
could be a handicapped and 
dangerous driver because you 
don't recognize your handicap 
and are not prepared for it. 
What could these handicaps 



Emotional upi 
news from home or a mis- 
understanding with a special 
friend. Postpone the trip if 
you can. If you can't, realize 
your situation and make a 
special effort to be alert or ask 
someone else to drive. 

Perhaps distraction merits a 
word or two. Have you ever 
tried to sneek a peek at the 
map or eat as you drive? Pray 
you won't have a blowout 
during your lunch time. Your 
young children as passengers 
can be great distractors; plan 
ahead how to deal with this. 

Illness — with something as 
simple as a cold I have heard 
many students over the years 
say to me that they don't quite 
feel "with it," or consider hay 
fever with its sneezing, wa- 
tery, itchy eyes (possible tem- 
porary impaired vision) and 
nose blowing, 

Medicines — along with ill- 
ness often goes the taking of 
medicines. Some people react 
badly to a drug which would 
not bother someone else. So if 
you take a medicine you 
haven't used before, wait until 
lyou know its effects on you 
before you drive. 

Alertness—I'm sure all of 
you have at times driven for 
such a long time and perhaps 
on a very straight road with 
unvarying landscape, and you 
may have realized there was 
a sort of hypnosis or trance to 
it. You may have also realized 
that your reflexes were 
slowed. Let me urge you to do 
what you know you should. 
Stop often at the rest stops 
and if there aren't any, devise 
some diversion of your own. 

Other factors which can 
affect your alertness are poor 
ventilation (too hot in the car 
or carbon monoxide) and poor 
vision (wearing sunglasses too 
late in the day, not enough 
Vitamin A in the diet causing 
night blindness or needing 
glasses). Some say a head- 
ache will affect their vision. 

Of course you know you 
should avoid trips on the first 
and last day of a holiday and 
late night driving when the 
drunks are going home and 
evervone is getting sleepy. If 
you feel you must take some of 
these risks see if you can get 
by with only one at a time. If it 

has to be on a holiday, try to 
drive it all in daylight. If you 
have to drive straight through. 


; that 


Some people pray for Divine 
protection before trips. Be- 
fore praying this prayer I 
believe we should be certain 
the car is in good mechanical 
condition and that we are in 
good emotional and physical 
health and are well rested. I 
think of the prayer as covering 
the things over which we have 
no control, like the actions of 

It's great when you're in 
this college age group and 
you. realize you are on the 
threshhold of real independ- 
ence. But think a minute. 
You don't just belong to 
yourself You belong to 
everyone who loves you — your 
parents, that special ftiend, 
your young spouse, your baby. 
Take good care of yourself for 
them. Think of your passen- 
gers. The people in the other 
car. Someone loves and 
depends on them, too.

siasts have retreated into, the 
gym and to the volleyball 
courtsfortheirrecreation. Six 
A-league and ten B-Ieague 
coed volleyball teams have 
been formed and games are 
played every week night at 
5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. 
When all three volleyball 
courts are being used at once, 
the situation bears more than 
a slight resemblance to a 
three-ring circus, but with 

eight games carefully sched- 
uled per night, each team gets 
to play a game every night. 
This is important when the

On the mound of earth 
between the Thatcher Hall 
parking lot and Camp Road, a 
stainless-steel structure 

weighing approximately 300 
pounds was erected during 
Christmas vacation. 

This structure, a sundial, 
has been made possible by a 
class gift of money from the 
graduating students of 1965. 

This particular sundial was 
designed for easy reading. On 
a sunny day the metal bar 
casts a shadow across the 
curved base. A hole, bored 
into the bar, allows the sun- 
light to shine on the marked 
base which indicates the time 

A garden was planted on 
the mound two years ago with 
dwarf plants so that no shade, 
will be case on the sundial. 

The sundial can be adjusted 
to either Eastern Standard 
Time and Daylight Savings 
Time and is accurate within

SM in Palau Invites Letters and Prayers 

mominQ devotions 

Dear Editor: 

I would just like to say how 
much I have enjoyed the 
Accents this year even though 
I haven't been at SMC. It kind 
of keeps us SM's in touch with 
what is going on at school 
while we're, here. 

one of the articles in the 
most recent one I received 
said something about con- 
serving energy and maybe the 
dorms would have to cut down 
on electricity usage. A word 
to dorm students. If this 
happens, don't panic or fret. 
Just think about SM's in Palau 
and various other places 
where the electricity is avail- 
able only when the generator 
is working correctly, which is 
about one-half the time, and 
who have water only four 
hours per day, 6-8 and 6-8. Be 
thankful for small blessings. 

1 4o have one reprimand for 
the student body though. 
When an SM leaves SMC 
everyone promises to write, 
but what happens when they 
really get to their destination? 
No one ever writes. I have 
only gotten two letters from 
anyone from SMC since 1 left 
there last spring. Students, 
your student missionaries 

need your support not only 
through Accents, Jokers, and 
prayers, but also through let- 
ters from their friends so they 
will know they haven't been 
forgotten. I think i speak for 
all SM's as a whole. 

The Lord has really blessed 
here this year, and we have 
the largest enrollment ever 
this year. There are fun 
times, frustrating times, and 
embarrassing times in the life 
of an SM. Like when you think 
you are getting so smart 
learning their language and 
decide to try it out. someone 
knocks on ihe door and you 
call, "Bomluk". When you 
get a funny response you all of 
a sudden realize you were 
supposed to say, "Bemtuu." 
What you really said instead 
of "come in" was "shut up." 
Such is life in the mission 

For all of you who are 
planning on being SM's next 
year, I can't recommend it 
high enough. You will learn 
more in one year out here than 
you can in four years of 
college. Just remember Jesus 
is the best friend you have 
even when you feel you're all 

alone. Also remember there 
are SM's this year that are 
waiting for mail.

Rpsolutions Declared for the New Year 

It being the beginning of 
new year and more irapor- 
tanUy a new decade. I've 
decided this year, for my New 
Year's resolutions, to dig 
deeper than I have in the past 
to look for things in my life 
that really offend me and 
resolve to change them. So, 
below is an extensive list of 
my resolutions with a few 
extra ones thrown in forfipace. 
~ I resolve to: 

•Not be surprised with the 
weather we have been having 
this winter especiaUy if it 
snows this summer. 

•Read the general an- 
nouncements 1 get in my 
mailbox before I throw them 

•Be more thankful I'm not 
the ambassador to Iran. 
•Say something good about 

the CK and to stop criticizing 
the food and service. 

♦Write my Secret Sister 
even though I've already writ- 

•Never again eat a veal 
cuUet at the "fasf't?) food 
restaurant in the College Plaza 
next to the Book and Bible 

•Not laugh when someone 
teUs me that the Rams have a 
chance to win the Super Bowl. 

•Consider dating as an al- 
ternative lifestyle. 

•Stop comparing the cafe- 
teria's vegetarian turkey loaf 
to Mom's Thanksgiving turkey 
with ail the trimmings. 

•Be more conscious of the 
exalted position of seniors. 

♦Stop wondering which 
came first, the chicken or Lynn 
Wood Hall. 

•Be more considerate of 
freshman who keep asking rae 
where Wright Hall is, while 
standing in line at the cafe- 

•Stop bringing a pencil to 

jhapel and start borrowing 
other peoples' pencils. 

•Not to walk down the hill 
by the side of the men's dorm 
on rainy days. 

♦Be more considerate of my 
neighbors by making sure 
they can hear their radio 
better than they can hear 

•Be sure when I'm taking a 
cold shower that the person 

♦Remember to bring every- 
thing back with me that I took 
home for the weekend. 

•Make sure, when barrel- 
ling out of the library, that the 
gate is unlocked. 

♦Not make jokes about how 
resolutions are like 20 dollar 
bills, pencil lead, plate glass 
windows and Chevrolets — 
made to be broken.

SA Offices Described 

The duties of SA officers are 
many. The main requirement 
is a spirit of service and 
willingness to spend time and 
effort in working for one's 
fellow students. The financial 
remuneration for these posi- 
tions is nowhere near what 
one could make in other jobs. 
Anyone running for an SA 
office for the money will be 
disappointed. Anyone 

^wanting to serve and be 
rewarded with experience and 
knowledge will be satisfied. 

General outlines of the 
duties required in the posi- 
tions are as follows: 

The president calls and 
chairs the SA Senate meetings 
and the general assemblies 
(student body meetings). He 
makes executive appoint- 
ments including the SA secre- 
tary, treasurer, parliamen- 
tarian and PR director. Per- 
sons interested in this position 
must be outgoing and willing 
to work with the Administra- 

The vice-president coordi- 
nates the activities of the 
Social Activities Committee, 
the Student Services Com- 
mittee and the Publication 
Committee and represents 
their interests in the Student 
Senate. The VP would serve 
as acting president until the 
next election if the office of 
president should be vacated. 
He also calls and chairs the 
executive cabinet meetings. 
Persons interested in this 
position must also be outgoing 
and willing to work with the 

The social activities direc- 
tor's main job is to organize a 
committee to coordinate the 
social activities on campus. 
He also works in conjunction 
with the Programs Committee 
of the College. 

The main function of the 
Student Services Director is to 
coordinate programs such as 
Friday films, symphony trips 

and the Rider's Map. He is 
• also to coordinate the College 
frithin a College (mini-course) 

The Southern Accent editor 
is responsible for producing a 
weekly newspaper. He is 
responsible for choosing his 
own staff. This person must 
be willing to take a lighter 
class load and work between 
35 and 40 hours each week. 

The Southern Memories ed- 
itor is responsible for produc- 
ing a yearbook. He will also 
choose his own staff. This 
person should have good abil- 
ities and be willing to work 
between 15 and 20 hours a 

The Joker editor is respon- 
sible for designing, printing 
and distributing the Joker 
within the first month of the 
school year. He must also 
produce a supplement of sec- 
- students.

Tree Destruction Caused by Carelessness 

n Melissa Smith 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege boasts one of the most 
beautiful campus' in the 
Seventh-day Adventist realm. 
Many flowering bushes and 
trees, extensive green lawns 
and well-manicured flower 
beds grace the area. Bat 
grandest of all are the stately 
evergreens and deciduous 
trees that add an air of 
seasoned elegance to this 
Southern college. 

These t 

ees take a life time 
and more to fully mature. 
Many are sprouted but few 
reach old age and all ate pitted 
against destruction whether it 
be natural or human. This 
natural destruction of disease, 
insects, fire and storms are 
inevitable, but human de- 
struction by carelessness and 
ignorance is unnecessary. 

Some of the College's most 
beautiful trees have met an 
end such as this. 

An 80-year-old Sugar 
Maple, the kind of tree maple 

syrup is extracted from, was 
killed to put in a new road by 
the first LitUe Debbie plant. 
Because of its location and 
age, it would be considered 
valuable. It could have been 

A White Oak by the Annex 
parking lot was mined be- 
cause the telephone company 
dug a ditch two feet from the 
tree and maimed the root 
system. The ditch didn't have 
to go there. 

A stabilizer pod of a back- 
hoe was planted beside a tree. 
The damaged roots are now 
open and more vulnerable to 
insects and disease. 

Possibly the saddest inci- 
dence of this tree murder 
happened to the largest ever- 
green on the campus, in fact, 
one of the largest evergreens 
in the area. 

A 40-foot Norway Spruce by 
the excavation sight of the 
Fine Arts Complex was cut 
down. It was not in the 
architects plans to have it cut 

and could have graced the 
area for some time. This tree 
was felled the end of Novem- 
ber and still lies, untouched. 

When talking to construc- 
tion workers at the sight, they 
said that possibly in a year or 
more the tree would have had 
to go, but not now. It was 
apparently cut early so it could 
be used as the College Christ- 
mas tree, only to find out — too 
late— that it was too large and 
brittle. The limbs were 
broken when it hit the ground. 

I then questioned the 
Grounds Department Director 
Charles Lacey and he con- 
firmed that it could have been

appropriate time came. Pre- A tree was pushed back

Absence Committee Explains Policies 

Why does the Absence 
Committee exist? Why not let 
the teachers excuse the ab- 

The Absence Committee 
was set up primarily to take 
the burden off the teachers 
(especially those with large 
classes), establish a central- 
ized absence information cen- 
ter for academic counseling 
and establish consistent ra- 
tionale for excusing absences. 
Wouldn't it be more per- 
, sonalfor the teachers to -work 
with their own students? 

The Absence Committee 
system is definitely imper- 
sonal. The Committee con- 
siders large numbers of ex- 
cuse requests each week. 
Rigid -restrictions have been 
established so that the Com- 
mittee attains a certain level of 
consistency. These guidelines 
are for the general populous of 
the student body.' There are 
times extenuating 
stances that might' 
exception to the rule. 

What is the rationale fot 
excusing or not excusing ab- 

The Student Handbook 
states, "Excused absences are 
recognized as absences incur- 
red because of illness, au- 
thori^d school trips or emer- 
gencies beyond the student's 

What does a student do if 
he's sick? 

"An excuse due to illness 
may not be granted unless the 
student has visited the Health 
Service prior to the absence." 
But this does not apply to 
village students. 

Are doctor and dentist ap- 
pointments excusable? 

Doctor and dentist appoint- 
ments must be made outside 
of class time. Time must be 
allowed for the usual waiting 
and fravel outside 
of class appointments. Med- 
ical and dental emergendes 
will be excused if the student 
attaches a note stating such 
from his 

should include date and 
of visit. 

What provisions should a 
student make when he knows 
in advance that he's going to 

The Absence Committee 
does not generally involve 
itself with these kinds of 
situations. The student is 
advised to go to the teacher, 
explain his situation and make 
proper arrangements. 

What are the absence 
guidelines concerning wed- 
dings and funerals? 

Wedding absences are 
allowed for travel, if the 
student is part of the wedding 
party or if the bride or groom 
is pari of his immediate 
family. Absences incurred

How come? 

The caller should have been 
informed of your class ap-

should then make arrange- 
ments to call back later. 

How long after the absence 
does a student have to turn in 
his excuse? 

Absences incurred during

to by 12 p.m. the following 

What should I do when I 
want to appeal a decision of 
the Absence Committee? 

The student has the choice 
of either going to the teacher 
and personally explaining his 
situation and the teacher at his 
own discretion, may overrule 
any decision of the Absence 
Committee or resubmitting his 
absence slip with more com- 
plete detail to the Absence 
Committee. Absences are 
often times unexcused be- 
cause of lack of information.

If you think you have troubles, pity the poor editor. If he 
attends a meeting, he's being nosey; if he doesn't he isn't 
interested. If he writes an in-depth story, it's too long; if he 
condenses one, it's incomplete. If he quotes you verbatim and 
you decide that wasn't what you meant to say, you call him inept 
or untruthful or both. If he asks for advice, he's incompetent; if 
he doesn't he's a know-it-all. If he makes a mistake, he hears 
about it for weeks; if he doesn't he never hears about it. If he 
erpresses an opinion, he wants to run the show; if he doesn't, 
he lacks guts. If he takes sides on an issue, he is prejudiced; if 
he doesn't he is a coward. If he misspells your name, you never 
forget it; if he doesn't, you don't read the story.

And last week, as I began 
my pitiful pittOL-patfer down 
the hall, ther£ was a new sheet 
posted to tKe'door. I gratefuly 
stopped and gazed at the 
question. "Tired of being a 
'Southern Missionary?' If you 
were in charge, what would 
rOi/ rename the college?" 

Below is an abridged 
version of what was on the 
page: Collegedale College; 
Donald Duck University; 
Cnittel College or Knittel 
Kollege; Brinsmead Univer- 
sity; Andrews University (but 
it was scratched out). The

(Khomeini College was dis- 
cussed by a few standing 
around but was never actually 
written down). 

Though these ideas will 
probably be passed on to the 
Board of Trustees and some 
great fame and glory might 
come my way, i must humbly 
admit that the underlying 
cause of this letter is to thank 
Steve and Joe for allowing the

Morning Worship in Talge Hall Missed 

Dear Editor: 

This letter c 
Resolution that has been taken 
in relation to the worship 
schedule. As a resident of 
Talge Hall, it is my duty to 
bring attention to this new 
worship schedule. 

First it seems that there are 
not enough reasons for the 
action that has been taken. 
I'm not against the time the 
worships were scheduled, 7 
and 10 p.m., but against the 
celled morning worships 

What is the problem and 
the reasons for the cancelled 
worships? Can it be that the 
deans don't want to wake a 
little earlier to officiate the 
worship, or was it that not 
enough students attended the 
worships? I have been consis- 
tently attending these wor- 
ships, and I don't think that 

student directed the worship. 
His name is Kenneth Wise- 
man and he did a real good 

job. He shared with us a 
personal experience, and even 
though it was short, it surely 
was very inspiring. My ques-

a small number of people. 
Besides, do not the Scrip- 
tures say that where there £ 

1 the 


matter probably from a dif- 
ferent point of view. Wouldn't 
it be nice to start the day with 
God? I personally like to go to 
worships with a free spirit and 
good will, not with a spirit of 
obligation. I was very happy 
with the morning worships. It 
was a refreshing experience, 
just the simple thought of 
knowing that one could begin 
the school day with Christ. 

Jesus congregated, the Spirit 
of the Lord will be there, too? 
If there is any problem 
concerning the morning wor- 
ships, or if they need per- 
sonnel to organize them, why 
not ask the students to direct 
the worships? 1 know there 
are quite a few students that 
are capable of doing this. 

For example, last week a 

the morning worships? For 
me it is very meaningful and 1 
know for others, too. 

My suggestion for the deans 
and for the SA officers is to 
reconsider such an action and 
to think it over before doing 
something that may seem 
unimportant but is not. Please 
reconsider such action. As 1 
stated before. I'm not against 
the night worships but against 
the cancellation of the morn- 
ing worships. 

We can't afford to waste it.

Do you think our Olympians 
should defy a boycott by Carter 
and participate in the summer 

TomBaez, senior, theology, Orlando. Fla.: Many say politics 
and atheletics shouldn't be combined, but this is difficult when 
it comes to the Olympics. I feel the atheletes shouldn't go if we 
boycott the Olympics. 

PaulJansen, sophomore, biology, Redlands, Calif.: First off, 
I think it's dumb for Carter to boycott the Olympics. But if he 
does, then they shouldn't go. Now — do you want my opinion of 

Tedd Webster, junior, physical education, Collegedale, 
Tenn.: If Russia keeps acting the way it is, 1 think we should 
boycott them. 

Matt Nafie, senior, behavioral science, Taftville. Conn.: 
Someone who's worked that hard ought to be able to participate 
in the Olympics. There are other ways of getting Russian troops 
out of Afghanistan. I'd go along with having the site of the 
games moved somewhere else. 

Brenda Brusett, sophomore, nursing. Redding, Calif.: 
don't think he has a right to keep them from going. They'\ 
worked and trained very hard so why do they have to suffei

Steve Blanco, sophomore, biology, Washington, D.C.: I think 
it should be left up to the participants. NBC will lose a lot of 
money because they're covering it if it's boycotted. It would be 
more effective if many countries participated in the boycott.

CK Expansion JSot Feasible 

n Melissa Smith 

The feasibility study, begun 
in October by Selmon T. 
Franklin and Associates to 
determine the possibility of 
expanding the Campus Kitch- 
en, has been completed. 

"We don't like the news," 
said Business Manager Rich- 
ard Reiner, "but the expan- 
sion is not feasible." 

The total cost of the expan- 
sion, including new equip- 
ment, moving the laundry and 
enlarging the CK, would be 
$300,000. Even over 30 years, 
the rents from the operations 
would not justify the large 

"The sales would have to 

almost triple and prices go up 
to make it work," Reiner 
added. "If the cafeteria were 
at capacity and there were 
enough trade other than stu- 
dents, we could go ahead, but 
there is not sutticient com- 
munity patronage and so not a 
real need for more area." 

The College Plaza will be | 
paid for in six years and the 
revenues from that without a 
mortgage note to pay will help 
keep tuition down. 

Being so close to having the 
Plaza payed off, the College 
does not want to immediately 
go back into heavy indebted-

African Student Joins SMC 
to Obtain Science Decree 

DDana Wes( 

From Blantyre, Malawi in 
Africa to CoIIegedale, Ten- 
nessee, she has come to study 
medicine so she can return 
home and administer to the 
needs of her people. 

Kwafaani "Kwafa" 

Chakuamba, the 16-year-old 
daughter of an African poli- 
tical leader, arrived last week 
to begin a four-year trek 
towards her bachelor of 
science degree at Southern 
Missionary College. 

Her father, the Honorable 
Gwanda Chakuamba, the cab- 
inet minister for youth and 
culture, has great hopes for 
Kwafa and her younger 
brother and sister. 

To Kwafa, the most out- 
standing aspect of the United 
States is "the high 
buildings." There aren't that 
many in Malawi, 

Son Writes Annual Letter Home 

"Compared with our 
schools in Malawi. SMC is 
huge." Kwafa noted. 

Kwafa's family decided that 
the United States would offer 
the finest training in the world 
for her. She chose SMC for 
her undergraduate training 
because of friends, former 
students and the quality of 
education she can obtain here. 
Both her parents are Seventh- 
day Adventists and her father 
attended an SDA college in 
Rhodesia. Kwafa intends to 
stay in America to study for 
her medical degree, also. 

After receiving her doc- 
torate, Kwafa's ultimate goal 
is to return to Malawi as a 
physician— something that is 
desperately needed there, and 
she wants to be a part of her 
country's future. 

"Everyone is nice here and 
I really like my classes, ' ' 
Kwafa said. "The only trouble 
I seem to be having is under-

Careers Day will be held 
next Thursday, Jan, 31. The 
format will differ from those in 
the previous years — classes 
will be cancelled from 11 a.m. 
to 3 p.m. 

"We are cancelling classes 
so all students will have an 
opportunity to attend," ex- 
plained Dean of Students 
Melvin Campbell. 

After a short talk by Dr. 
Campbell, the students will be 
dismissed to wander around 
the gymnasium. At present 21 
institufions will have booths 
set up in the gymnasium. 
These institutions represent ' 
local and national companies, 
and local conferences. 

Dr. Campbell explained that 
a hospital hires more than 
nurses and medical techni- 
cians and "hope that the 
students would not overlook 
the opportunity to work for 
one of them." 

Following lunch two short 
classes will be given. One 
class will be conducted on 
writing a resume and the other 
class will be how to conduct 
yourself during an interview. 
Each class will last approxi- 
mately 25 minutes.

time there are always two 
students to supervise the 
children. If the openings are 
not filled by the end of nest

will have to be let go. 

Sliger stated that one of the 
reasons the parents like send- 
ing their children to the Cen- 
ter is because there is more 
than one supervisor at all 
times. By having two super- 
visors, some of the children 
can play outside while the 
others remain indoors. If one 
child was sick, it would mean 
that all the children would 
have to stay in because only 
one supervisor would be there 
to •vafch them all. 

At the present time they are 
averaging 10 children a day. 

They are presently making 
arrangements to take two 
year-olds. Sliger stated that 
the price will still be the same 
for them because she is willing 
to put in the extra time, how- 
ever the parents mast supply 
the diapers. 
Other airangementa include 

application from the Student

After they receive their eligi- 
bility report, they should bring 
it to the Student Finance 
Office. It is also necessary to 
see Nelda Reid and sign a 

voucher so that the money can 
be credited to their account. 

Those students who have

top of their league. The

In a rather low-scoring game

Cramped Parking Problems Plague Students 


The ena or tne month isn't one of the most popular times. 
While for some it means another paycheck or a new day-by-day 
calendar, a number of women seem to find their cafeteria bills 
under the $50 minimum. 

The cafeteria charges each dorm student S50 each full month 
of school in order to guarantee a monthly operating budget. The 
reasoning behind this is logical because Mr. Evans and his 
workers need to know approximately how much they can spend 
on food and what its price should be. However I find it very 
unfair to the slender beauties in Thatcher Hall. 

At the end of each month it seems that the women are 
lending their ID cards to friends (or brothers if they're lucky). 
Others rush down to the Campus Kitchen to stock up on forzen 
pizzas, loaves of bread, apples and anything else that can 
possibly raise the monthly food bill to the magic fifty. 

Most of the time the food which was bought to reach the 
minimum is wasted because it rots in the room. Why waste food 
just to reach the minimum? 

Some feel that the students would eat more off campus as 
such places as Taco Bell if there was not a monthly minimum. 
But how long would that last when it is di^icult to withdraw 
money on one's account? 

Glancing at some the the meal receipts that find their way to 
the cafeteria floor, there seems to be quite a few that have 
already reached SIOO. Therefore it appears that if the minimum 
|vas discarded that most of the students would still eat the same.

A prime example I will 
present is the construction of 
the Thatcher annex with its 
miniature parking area. Sure, 
we like it to look pretty and 
trim, but can we justify creat- 
ing only 57 parking spaces in 
the new annex lot, when 250 
students are housed in the 
annex? Does the aesthetic 
benefit gained from this or- 
namental rock and shrubbery 

the lack of precious parking 
spaces for our Thatcher annex 
ladies? Of course. I realize 
that all students do not own or 
operate automobiles. But 1 
have heard plenty of com- 
plaints from female students 
having to park in the gymna- 
sium parking lot and walk 
across to Thatcher Hall on 

dark nights. The annex lot 
could have been enlarged to 
park many more cars if sen- 
sible planning would have 
gone behind constructing it. 

I do realize, though, that the 
major problem lies in village 
student parking. Most stu- 
dents are so burdened with 
homework and projects that 
they don't have time to drive 
to campus 15 minutes early 
each morning to avoid driving 
around campus looking for a 
parking spot. 

This creates a great incon- 
venience for the student who. 
although he planned plenty of 
time to get to class on time, 
now finds himself walking into 
class late due to this trip 
around campus looking for a 
parking spot and finally end- 
ing up walking from the far 
comer of the campus to his 

The ratio of parking spaces 
allotted to faculty and stu- 
dents versus the number of 
faculty and students here at 
SMC is very poorly and un- 
fairiy distributed. Almost 
without exception when I 
enter a parking area for both 
student and faculty parking 
designations, I find several 
empty spaces in the faculty 
area, while the student park- 
ing is completely full! If these 
faculty spaces are not used, 
some should be designated for 
student use! 

An example is the lot 
entrance south of Thatcher 
annex entrance, leading past 
Herin Hall, library, and to the 

cafeteria. This area contains 
40 spaces specified for village 
and Thatcher Hall students 
combined use. While we have 
approximately 2,000 students 
attending SMC, we have only 
about 200 faculty, administra- 
tion and workers. Shouldn't 
more space be provided for 
this large number of students? 
Only this morning as I arrived 
on campus for my 8 o'clock 
class in the library, 1 found 
every one of the 40 spaces for 
students filled, while the 29 
faculty spaces, there were 13 
spaces in a row emptv! Some 
of these extra facultv spaces 
should be redesigned for 
student use instead of being

Health Program for all second works in the office at the 
project location. These offices 
are within walking distance of 
450 to 700 families in low-cost 
housing areas. One of the 
programs used is Health Pro- 
motion Activities Center 
(HPAC). Once a week, stu- 
dents visit several families 
and do surveys on what the 
community needs most at the 
time. Health education and 
screen programs are devel- 
oped from these surveys. 

Also on TuesdayTTfour to 
five students go into rural 
counties visiting Senior 
Neighbor Centers where they 
do HPACs, which consist of 
health talks, health education 
movies, and diabetes and 
anemia screenings. This part 
of the program is sponsored 
by Southern Missionary

of this program art the better

more active involvement role

When He was still quite 
young He and His family took 
a long journey to the big citJ^ 
There He watched the strange 
ritual of their religion. As He 
stood in the temple day after 
day the dream began to ex- 
pand in His mind until one day 
the dream exploded. As He 
watched the bleeding lamb He 
realized His destiny — He was 
to be the nurse for the ills of 
all mankind, by His own

wounds of the world.

the riverbank, a dove, as white 
as the whitest of nursing caps, 
descended and lit upon His 
head. Then, the One who 
officiated at the service pro- 
nounced the blessing upon His 
chosen profession. 

What a grand i 
pinning in che life of a nurse. 
When the nurse receives that 
pin it is recognized as a mark 
of new authority. His mother 
was the first to notice. He 
wore it to a wedding. As she 
watched Him she recognized 
in His countenance that mark 
of new authority and the small 
group of men following Him 
and calling Him "Master" 
^nly confirmed her suspicions. 

If a nurse decides to con- 
tinue his or her education, the 
day comes when a specialty 
must be chosen. He chose 
obstetrics (OB). His was a 
rather exotic brand of the 
science. To one full grown 
man He spoke these eccentric 
words: "You must be born 
again." From later docu- 

ments we find that He offici- 
ated at the birth of at least one 
of His brothers — who was 
older than Himself! He had 
an eScLllent recoro. and when 
He came to the end of His 
internship He could say, "I 
only lost one!" {cf. John

A Christian Look at the State of Affairs 

In response to Dickerhoff' s 
"Draft Dodgers," i would like 
to sav a few words. 

1 don't doubt that the guys 
of Talge Hall have been 
concerned over the possible 
reestablishment of the draft, 
but I would find it very 
disturbing if 1 thought this 
reflected the attitude of the 
majority of the men of Talge. 

I am sure this article 

humorous light on the subject 
but as a "mature" Christian 
college, I feel we need to look 
at the nation's state of affairs 
more seriously. Whether or 
not we agree with the way our 
country's foreign affairs are 
being handled, we should still 
be supportive of the leaders. 
If we choose to live in a 
country of freedom, we should 
be proud to be called, if 
necessary, to serve it. 

" 'Everyone must submit 
himself to the governing 

authorities, for there is no 
authority except that which 
God has established. The 
authorities that exist have 
been established by God. 
Consequently, he who rebels 
against the authority is rebel- 
ling against what God has 
instituted, and those who do 
so will bring judgement on 
themselves." Romans 13:1,2

Point Sy stem Will Solve Pa rking Problems 

There's a very serious 
problem here at SMC, and it 
has to deal with everyone. I'm 
talking about the problem of 
having 1,500 registered cars 
and only 79 parking spaces on 
campus. The ratio of cars to 
parking spaces has always 
been high, but with the price 
of gas, the students can't 
afford to stay out all night. 
Now they are getting in before 
toomcheck, and they need a 
space to park. 

There's nothing morally 
wrong with wanting to park 
your car, but when it comes to 
using sumeone else's spatre,

Nursing Vans to Load at Herin Hall 

DTricia Smith " 

The nursing students are 
loading the early morning 
vans for hospital labs at Herin 
Hall rather than in front of 
Wright Hail. 

In a letter written by Pres- 
ident Frank Knittel to the 
nursing department, he stated 
that due to the congestion of 
the main circle in the morning, 
the loading of vans will be 
moved to the nursing depart- 
ment parking lot.

Here is how it works. A

When asked what was meant, 
Dr. Knittel stated that it was 
not moving traffic he was 
referring to. The problem was 
caused by nursing students 
and instructors who lived in 
the village, parking in front of 
Wright Hall in administra- 
tion's lot. This caused the 
other faculty to have to find 
somewhere else to park. 

"Students eat brealrfast 
here in the morning and then 

walk to many different places 
all over campus," said Dr. 
Anittel. "We feel the nurses 
need not be any different." 

Until this year, the students 
have loaded in fi-ont of Wright 
Hall between 6 and 7:30 a.m.

was opened early for them to

Les Musselwhite 


SA President 

As a candidate for the office of president of the 
Student Association, the only thing I can offer or promise 
is that I will work with and cooperate with the other 
elected Student Association officers in a productive 
manner to enhance the programs and activities on this 

Organization is the key to a successful SA and this 
would be something I would strive for. It would be my 
intent to be enthusiastic, and I would hope that this 
enthusiasm would increase the motivation of the other 
officers. I intend to fully support all of the newly elected 
officers to the best of my ability. 

The various programs which the SA offers should be of 
the highest quality possible. Our Social Activities 
Director and our Student Services Director have done a 
very good job this year with their programs, and we look 
forward to more success next year. Of course, there are 
times when our^oals are not realized, but the harder one 
strives for these goals, the more attainable they become. 
This is where I intend to try harder; to make our 
programs higher in quality, both spiritually and socially. 

I thank you for your previous support of the Student 
Association, and 1 ask for your vote of confidence on 
February 13 and 14. 

My basic objectives are; ■ 

1. To see that you get the necessary 
physical, mental, moral, social and spirit- 
ual Ingredients of education while attend- 
ing SMC. 

2. To inflate SA program quality, not 
the tuition. 

3. To present the services available 
academically and socially. 

I'll see that these goals set, are met. 

Carol Hanscom 

Social Activities Director 

Hi! I'm Sam Hamlin. To me 
Social Activities means fun and 
excitement, meeting new people or 
attaching names with faces, and 
getting you involved in your SA. 

Support me in the upcoming 
elections and I'll do my best to 
make next year your t)est ever. 

Chuck Jenkins 

How's your social life? 
Are you low on cash this 
weekend, and you just 
can't afford to ask some- 
one out for a date? Or 
you just don't have a car 
and the College's week- 
end program calls for a 
saxophone quartet? 

Welcome to the club. 

As a candidate for Social Activities Director, I'd like to 
give you more dating opportunities and activities than 
ever before. Here are some of my ideas which may 
interest you: 1. A Saturday night film alternative to the 
College's "Artist Adventure Series." 2. For those 
without cars but need to shop, free van service to 
Northgate and Eastgate malls each Friday on a rotating 
basis. 3. A monthly published schedule of programs, 
events and activities so that you can plan your week and 
weekends ahead of time (and maybe ask out that girl 
you've been wanting to date). Best of all, each of these 
programs and services cost you NOTHING. 

I want to serve YOU, and attempt to provide QUALITY 
programs over quantity ones. No more "Gus the Kicking 
Mule." Of course, I don't have the market covered on all 
the ideas, and I would certainly appreciate your 
suggestions and comments. 

In closing, I'd like to ask you again, "How's your 
social life now. and what would YOU like it to be like in

However the most important aspect of the responsibility of Student Services is the aspect 
of working together. I will work to make sure that Student Services carries its share of the

Therefore, accuracy, quality and speed are of utmost

In reviewing the responsibilities of a Joker editor, I 
feel the most important ones are: designing an attractive 
cover, including helpful information with quality repro- 
ductions of the student's pictures, and of course, getttng 
the Joker out as soon as possible. 

I know that I will find no problem in meeting all these 
requirements, plus more. I already have an idea for the 
cover design and I want to use the convenient SVi x 11 
inch size incorporated this year. Information will be 
added that was not in this Joker. The College Press will 
ie contracted to do the printing and John Durichek, 
Masters, Graphic Arts, has agreed to give advice 
whenever needed. I feel that accuracy is more important 
than speed, so I suggest that we take a little longer and 
reduce errors. But that in no way means we'll take more 
than a month, it will be more like IVi to 3 weeks after 
registration. However, if you prefer speed to accuracy, 
let me know. I will welcome any ideas (

Prusia Clinches Lead in AA League Action 

Prusia leaped back into first 
place in the Men's AA League 
this week, recovering from a 
shattering 62-54 upset by 
Beyer last week. Prusia 
gained two this week to rise. 
again, as cream of the crop. 

The team first defeated 
Nafie, 60-57, in a well-fought 
game which edged them into 
first place. Dragging in the 
early part of the game, Prusia 
watched Nafie score 10 points 
before making a move. The 
team was still trailing at 12 
points to Nafie's 23 at the end 
of the first quarter but came 
back to top Nafie's 29 points 
with 30 at the end of the half, 
and then to clinch the game 
with a three point lead. 

Prusia shot a 50 per cent 
average to put 1 7 points on the 
board — including a smashing 
slam-dunk in the last few 
minutes of the game — and led 
the team in rebounds; 
Creamer and Dlminich added 
14 points each. 

Prusia then widened his 
lead with a 84-67 victory over 
Rathbun. Again the team 
came from behind, this time 
still trailing 55-57 by the end 
of the third quarter. Rough 
fourth quarter action gave the 
team 13 points from the foul 
line alone; an additional 14 
points from the field clinched 
the victory for Prusia. 

Prusia again led the team's 
scoring, shooting 12 for 21 
fiom the field for an awesome 
24 points. Creamer and 
Diminich each added 19 points 
and Leonard also scored in the 
double figures with 11 points. 
Prusia and Creamer grabbed 
the record for rebounds. 

As a whole, the team's 
statistics show a strong con- 
sistency and accuracy thus far 
in the season, with a record for 
the highest percentages from 
both the field and the line, 
plus the second highest in 
total points. 

Nafie tasted defeat as they 
lost not only the game but the 
first-place position to Prusia 
this week. Schultz, West and 
Nafie all scored in the double 
figures with 18, 16 and 14 
points, respectively as they 
tried to hold their lead. The 
team's shooting percentages 
have not been brilliant, but 
they hold the record for the 
lowest number of points al- 
lowed their opponents this 
season. This strongly defen- 
sive team is not out of the 
running yet. 

Rathbun moved up to third 
place this week, adding both 
one win and one loss. The 
team first defeated Beyer 
71-66 in an exciting, neck-and- 
neck game. Rathbun sunk 29 
points, while Lingerfelt and 

holds the records for 
getting the ball in the air with 
the highest number of free 
-throws attempted and made 
field goals attempted . and 
made, and the highest number 
of total points made. How- 
ever, they also have the 
dubious distinction of allowing 
the most points to their op- 
ponents this season. With a 
little more defensive action, 
such as getting more people 
under the boards to rebound 
wild shots, this team could be 
doubly formidable. 

Beckwith also moved up in 
the order this week with a 
58-49 victory over Beyer for 
their second win of the season. 
Beckwith, Preston and Mosley 
shot 17, 14 and 11 points, 
respectively, in that satisfying 

Price also scored in the double 
figures with 18 and 12 points 
respectively. Price also made 
a name for himself with his 
almost-violent rebounding, 
while Maddock and Lingerfelt 
fed the team's score with 
same brilliant assists. 

Rathbun's match againt 
Prusia was less of a success. 
Leading the game at the end 
of the third quarter, the team 

buckled under as they wei., 
called for a game total of 21 
fouls, including 2 technicals. 
Rathbun again led the team's 
scoring with 25 points, while 
Price shone on the rebounds 
and assists. Maddock and 
Price chalked up 14 and 12 
points, respectively. Linger- 
felt put in 10, including sev- 
eral brilliant long bombs and a 
fast break or two. The team

Beyer suffered two losses 
this week, witn an accom- 
panying drop two notches in 
the order. While their games 
weren't quite as encouraging 
as their impressive 62-54 up- 
set over Prusia last week, the 
team had some definite high- 
lights. In their first game 
against Rathbun, Botimer hit 
21 points as well as the record 
for feeding a voluminous 
number of assists to other 
players. Ware, leading in 
rebounds and shooting 15 
points, and Velasco and 
Beyer shot 13, 12, 12 and 10 
points, respectively, in their 
game against Beckwith. This 
team definitely has some 
talent— don't cross it off your

added yet another bit of 
weight to their record with a 
46-37 victory over the Faculty 
this week. Stephens sunk 13 
of those points, and Rivera 
also scored in the double 
figures with 12 points. The 
team as a whole put in 11 or 20 

free throws which gave them 
the edge over the Faculty. 

Wold is firmly holding his 
second-place slot, and with his 
two wins added this week, he 
is in a position to begin eying 
first. The team narrowly 
defeated Sweeney, trailing 
most of the first half and then

Wold came back to squeeze by 
Sweeney with a final score of 
49-47. High scorers for the 
team were Coston with 13 
points, and Wold with 10. 

Wold next shot by Thomp- 
son, 72-65. Wold led his team 
with 22 points, and Coston put 
in 14. The team shot a 50 per 
C2nt average from the foul line 
for 8 points. 

Freck moved up a notch in 
the order this week and raised 
their game percentage 25 per 
cent with two wins. The first 
of these was a 59-48 victory 
over Thompson. Johnston, 
with 18 points, and Kittle, 
with 16, led the scoring action 
in that game. A 46-42 upset 
over Dias gave Freck his 

second win. Leach racked up 
18 of those points; Freck and 
Cherne added 8 each. 

Besides his loss to Freck, 
Dias was overtaken by the 
Faculty in a 48-35 defeat 
which dropped him to fourth 
place. The 60 per cent 
average the team displayed 
from the foul line was nothing 
to complain about, however. 

Thompson, Sweeney and 
the Faculty share a record of 
2-3. Thompson's defeats by 
Freck and the Faculty gave 
him two losses this week. 
Bright spots for the team 
included Thomson shooting 18 
and Greenlee 16 against 
Freck. Gudmestad and 

Greenlee racked up 17 each 
against the Faculty, and a 
team average of 7 for 13 from 

the foul line. 

Sweeney buckled under to 
Wold, 49-47. at the begmning 
of the week but came back to 
snatch a 57-48 victory from 
Webster. Langenberg nearly 
wore out the hoop shooting an 
astounding 26 points. New- 
myer and Culpepper each 
added 12 more points. 

The Faculty also forced a 
1-1 situation this week, first 
defeating Dias in a 48-35 
upset. Evans led the Faculty, 
scoring 11 points. Kamieneski 
and Schlisner weren't far be- 
hind with 10 and 8 points 
respectively. A 46-37 defeat 
by Dowell gave them their 
loss. Evans, shooting 12, and 
Garver with 10, led the scoring 
for the team.

Beitz still remained unde- 
feated after his game against 
Kuhlman last week. Evans 
sunk 20 big points for Beitz in 
that game, making the final 
score 65 to 39. 

However things didn't look 
well for Beitz in his game with 
Cummings. Cummings' team 
started with a lead over Beitz 
but then lost it because of 
Gteve's 15 points scored for 
Beitz. The final score for the 
game was 42-39 after an 
unexpected "time out" due to 
the power failure. 
_ Beitz finally lost his first 

game of the season last 
Thursday when King led 
Slate's team to victory with 14

Time to Stop Making Excuses and Compromises 


The female population of this college has a great opportunity 
this Valentine's Day, as well as this entire year. 

I discovered a certain tradition the other day which could 
boost every unmarried, dateless woman's spirits from here to 
the edge of the ozone layer. During leap year, the unclaimed 
jewels have a shot at a once-in-a-year bargam. and smce it is 
Valentine's Day. every girl should take advantage of this great 
offer. You see. leap year enables all women to ask for any 
man's hand in matrimony. That in itself is a great arrangement 
IF he accepts. But, that isn't the end of it. If he does refuse, he 
must purchase you a silk dress. Isn't that a wonderful custom? 
Udies! Think of the advantages of this offer. You either get a 
husband to present to your family or a 100 per cent silk dress to 
spice up your spring wardrobe. You get something no matter 
which way he decides. 

The only problem one might have is if a man accepts when 
whatyoureally want is the dress. I know — asof now I have four 
fiances. But, I'm going to keep on trying until I get a dress out 
of this deal. 

Women of Thatcher, here is your big chance! Go for those 
feUas and frocks, and Happy Valentine's Day! Oh, by the way, 
does anybody out there want to marry me? 

Dear Editor: 

We all have weaknesses, 
and we all become angry or 
frustrated. Sometimes we just 
wish we could slam a door in 
the face of whatever is causing 
us so much trouble, and 
maybe we do. Or maybe we 
decide to be a little more vocal 
and we start complaining; we 
say it's not really a problem, 
at least not our's. Besides, no 
one is perfect. Maybe we 
should stop and think about 
this for a moment. Do you 
think that possibly we let 
ourselves off the hook too 
many times for this behavior? 

ff we claim to be Christians, 
then we know that no one else 
is responsible for our displays. 
We have the freedom to 
choose to act for or against 
those things influencing us. 
Power is always available to 
help us step over the stum- 

bling blocks. We need to stop 
making excuses and compro- 
mises for doing what we know 
is wrong. 

In chapels and worships, 
instead of being quiet and 
reverent, we act more like 
first-graders waiting to be 
dismissed five minutes before 
recess. We argue about the 
dorm TV schedules, whether 
to tune the channel to "Mork 
and Mindy" or "The 
Waltons." Our cafeteria (in a 
college with a health message) 
serves us food that is either 
oil-saturated or sugar-coated. 

We spend thousands of 
dollars on new furniture, car- 
peting and equipment, 
millions for an extensive, new 
fine arts complex. Yes, we do 
glow in our progress, and we 
are very admirable. We're 

very generous, but mainly in 
our own behalf. We're getting 
sickeningly comfortable. Do 
we beg for the world to look 
our way and say "Bravo," or 
do we long to sit at the feet of 

Our deficiencies don't start

Thailand is a beautiful

really special. They are so 
warm and friendly — it is well- 
named "The Land of Smiles." 
But it's also a dirty country 
and most of the people are

it's their way of life, and they 
keep smiling! My students 
are mostly Chinese and Indian

which is why they come to us.

Wrongways Need Exit Arrows

I have a request to make, 
and that is to have BIG arrows 
painted on the road (exit) 
ing the dorms and Wright

people don't know that when 
you are in the left-hand lane 
that means you will be turning 
left and those in the right- 
hand land should turn right, 

In a couple of instances 1 
would be turning left and all of 
a sudden someone in the right 
lane would also turn left at the 

same time and could have 
caused a car accident if 1 
hadn't been watching care- 

Is there any way arrows 
could be painted on the exit 
soon? I am sure it v.ould be 
well worth the expe.ise of 
painting two arrows on the 
road for those who haven't 
yet learned the rules for 
driving. I know many of us 
would be grateful jf this is

Combined Minorities Emphasis Suggested 

Dear Editor: 

We would like to comment 
on Black History Week. We 
respect the feelings of those 
behind it, but we are still 
opposed to the idea. 

We do not feel that any one 
group should be singled out 
for a special week. We realize 
the Blacks have been virtually 
forgotten when it comes to 
American History, but so have 
all the other minorities. Why 
should this group be singled 

Today, the focus is on 

equaliiy. Those who have 

^ been forgotten, abused and 

discriminated against ; 
screaming for recognition. 

These movements have gone 
too far. Everyone is aware of 
the problems that have existed 
and still exist concerning pre- 
judice and discrimination of 
minorities, but how can we 
truly forget our differences 
and look on each other as 
equals as long as someone is 
saying, ' 'Look at me, I'm 
Black (or Puerto Rican, female 
or Indian, etc.) and I deserve 
special recognition and treat- 
ment." As long a^ we band 
together in groups, misunder- 

standing and prejudices are 
going to continue. 

if we need to have a week 
with special emphasis, why 
don't we have a goodwill week 
or a cultural week empha- 
sizing the good points of each 
ot the ditterent cultures re- 
presented at SMC instead of 
focusing on one particular 
group and bringing up past 
grievances— this would be 
much more interesting and

Black History Week Underscores Differences StrOOt iDOOt 

Dear Editor: 

I have no objections if 
Blacks on this campus wish to 
become more aware of their 
history and place in modern 
society, but students already 
as aware of the Black situation 
as they wish to be should not 
be forced to attend chapels 
devoted to the subject. Ten 
years ago a Black Awareness 
Week would have been valu- 
able. Since then, however, 
Americans have been bom- 

barded with the Black story, 
most memorably in the TV 
series "Roots," and most 
have reached saturation point. 
Nor do I think it proper to 
dedicate one week towards 
awareness of a single minority 
when so many are represented 
here. This is both unfair and 
illogical. A better idea is a 
Minorities Week. Still, why, 
on a Christian campus, where 
everyone is considered equal. 

should one group be distin- 
guished from another in this 
manner? As Christians, we all 
constitute a minority. A Black 
Awareness Week, or anything 
else like it. underscores the 
differences between "us" and 
"them." and does not pro- 
duce the unity that we need to 
reach the truly neglected por- 
tion of the population — lost 

by patti gentry

VALENTINES DAY its history and customs 

by Dana West and Melissa 

Will you be my valentine? It is hearts day once again. 
Grade-sciioolers will cut and paste with red construction 
paper and doilies, high-schoolers will shyly present candy 
samplers and Peanuts valentines, collegiates will FTD 
roses to sweethearts, and husbands will send their 
secretaries out for a last moment, gilded card for their 

How did all this card, flower and candy swapping come 
about? According to legend a Roman priest, Saint 
Valentine, was beheaded on Feb. 14, 270 AD, because he 
refused to renounce Christianity. That day was also 
known as the day birds begin their mating season. TTie 
saint's name soon became associated with love and 

TTie valentine card tradition began in 1415 when a 
Frenchman, Charles due d'Orleans, w4io was imprisoned 


Roman and English lasses were more coy. They sent 
their secret loves annonymous gifts on February 14. If the 
male seemed intrigued, the girl would reveal her identity 
and hopefully win his heart. 

Another English tradition held that a girl would dream 
of her future husband if she placed a sprig of bay leaves 
sprinl<led with rose water under her pillow. To be sure 
the charm worked, a maiden might boil an egg, remove 
the yolk and fill it with salt. Before going to sleep, she 
must eat the egg, shell and all without speaking or 

in the tower of London, passed the time by composing 
rhymed love letters to his wife. The practice caught on in 
Europe, with people decorating the notes with gilt paper, 
hearts and lace. The English settlers brought the custom 
to this country. 

Through the years, various valentine traditions have 
kept Cupid busy. Girls in medieval Sicily believed that 
the first toy they saw on Valentine's was destined to 
become their sweetheart. The maidens of the English 
countryside thought that if they saw a hen and a rooster 
outside the door on the morning of Valentine's Day, they 
would marry within the year. 

During the Middle Ages, young women of Europe 
would place their names in a box and the young men 
would draw one name apiece. Each male would then wear 
the name of his valentine on his sleeve for a year. This is 
where the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve' ' 

drinking anything afterward. 

The lucky lasses of the twentieth century no longer fret 
over Valentine traditions. The women of Thatcher Hall 
are greeted by lobbies not unlike a florist shop, and mail 
boxes holding pink and vrfiite cards from male admirers. 
The men of SMC receive heart cakes and the latest pride 
of the Hallmark valentine line from their favorite lady. 

Ahhhh, Valentines Day . . . when love is rampant, 
romance is the rage and hearts are high on the wish list.

Reagan Expected to Win by Hostages' Vote 

The Southern Accent this 
year did not endorse candi- 
dates for the Student Associa- 
tion elections held this week. 
So. I've decided to pick, not 
endorse, the winners in each 
race, I will give the pro's and 
con's of each candidate and 
the point spread. 

Steven dickerhoff 

I'll have to admit, like most 
everyone else, 1 didn't read 
many of the platforms of the 
candidates, but we all know 
they don't count for many 
votes anyway. The way to pick 
the winners is to look for what 
the voters look for in a 

Joker Editor: This is goin_ 
to be one of the closer races. 
Russell Gilbert and Lisa 
Ketley both have a good public 
appearance, but I have to go 
with Lisa, because she looks a 
lot better than Russell— take 
her 56. 

The Southern Accent Edi- 
tor: Melissa and Dana hav/° 
double the ideas, but Randy 
has double the experience. 

And besides he comes through 
with my check every month. 
Since this contest is too close 
to home, it is too dose to call. 

Southern Memories Editor: 

Her name might not be the 
only thing original about her, 
but Lezlee Caine is going to 
have to raise a lot more than 
that to beat Ronn Kelly. Take 
Ronn by 87. 
Student Services Director: 

Student Services needs some- 
body who knows what they are 
doing. Van Bledsoe is going 
for re-election, and Dan Kittel 
has loo many qualifications to 
know what's happening. Be- 
sides. Van is on my basketball 
team. I'll give it to Van by a 
basket (2 points). 

Social Activities Director: 
Sam Hamlin draws the best 
Tweedy Bird on campus. 
Chuck Jenkins has the right 
idea about the Artist Adven- 
ture Series. But Darryl 
Starkey has a deeper voice — 
Darrel by sn octave. 

Vice-president: Everyone 
knows the vice-president 
doesn't do a thing, so the 
winner of this race will be the 
person who can carry the P.E. 
majors' vote, since everybody 

knows they don't do a thing. 
Carol Hanscom scored very 
well on her ACT test scores, 
but Roger Burke didn't quite 
do as well. With this in mind. 
the P.E. vote wilt go to Roger, 
because they will be able to 
identify with him more. Take 
Roger by a composite score of 
less than 12. 

President: Since nobody is 
running for president, I'll 
pick the winner of our national 
Presidential campaign in 
November. Carter h^s shown 
he can get tough at times, but 
this hostage situation is get- 
ting ridiculous. Reagan may 
be old. but he knows when it's 
time to stop letting a little 
country push us around. Rea- 
gan, by the votes of the 50

AA League Lead Maintained by Prusia 


Things remained stable in Beyer. Prusia led the team's 

the Men's AA League this scoring with 23 points, in- 

week. Prusia drew a half- eluding 15 points in the fourth 

game farther into the lead quarter; Creamer and Ferris 

with a 68-57 victory over also scored in the double

figures with 22 and 10 points 
respectively. The team shot a 
steady 80 per cent from the 
line for 8 points. 

Nafie maintained his second 
place position successfully, 
place position successfully, 
despite a 72-74 loss to Rath- 
bun. Leading with 20 points to 
Rathbun's 14 in the first 
quarter and 35-30 at the half, 
the team froze during the third 
quarter, scoring only 9 points. 
Schultz came back in the 
fourth quarter with a formid- 
able 18 points, but it wasn't 
victory. Schultz put in an 
amazing 34 points total for a 
season record; Rouse added 
15. In their second game, 

Nafie came back to cut off 
Beckwith 68-51. Trailing at 8 
points to Beckwith's 15 in the 
first quarter and 22-29 at the 
half, Schultz came through 
with 14 points in the third 
quarter to pull the team ahead 
44-41; West clinched the game 
with 16 points in the last 
quarter. Schultz scored a total 
of 20 points and West a total of 
18 for the game. 

Rathbun narrowed the gap 
between second-ranked Nafie 
to one game with a 74-72 upset 
over Nafie. Lagging at the 
end of the first quarter and at 
the half, the game turned 
around for Rathbun when 
Lingerfelt put up 1 1 points and 

Price hit 8 in the third quarter 
to give the team of 55-44 lead. 
Lingerfelt scored a total of 23 
points for the team; Rathbun 
put in 22, and Price 18. 

Beckwith lost out to Nafie 
68-51 in the last halt of the 
game. Mosley led the team's 
scoring with 16 points and 
Beckwith put in II, but the 
team just couldn't keep pace 
with Nafie's surge in the 
second half. 

Beyer holds last place in the 
order, but still manages to 
look good. Falling short 57-68 
to Prusia, the team's record, 
nevertheless, includes Boti- 
mer shooting 26 points. Beyer 
shooting 11, and Ware 10. 

Wold Smashes Dowell' s Undefeated Record 





In A League action this 
week, Dowell 's undefeated 
record was smashed by 
second-ranked Wold. Dowell 
first put away Dias 50-47, 
coming from behind with 17 to 
Dias' 22 at the half. Rivera 
clinched that game scoring 19 
points, while Lacy and Jansen 
put in 9 and 8 points, respec- 
tively. Dowell then buckled 
under to Wold 59-63. The 
team again lagged at the half 
with 28 points to Wold's 31 
but didn't quite pull it off in 
the final moments of the 
game. Rivera shot an 

astounding game, sinking 15 

field goals and 1 free throw for 
31 very impressive points. 
Tuuri was the next-highest 
scorer for the team with 8 

Wold is still hot on Dowell's 
heels, at only half a game 
behind the first place position. 
A disappointing 39-45 loss to 
the Faculty shut off their 
hopes for a first-place tie this 
week. Wold led the game 
21-13 at the half, but with only 
5 players the team ran out of 
steam in the second half. A 
total of 20 team fouls, which 
game the Faculty 13 points in 
free throws, buried the team. 
Wold led his team's scoring 
with 18 points, Coston hit 9. 
Later in the team's hopes 
Wold again led his team with 
22 points, while Starkey, Cain 
and Coston also scored in the 
double figures with 14, 10, 
and again 10 points respec- 

Freck held on to his third- 
place position this week with a 
satisfying 80-37 win over 
Webster. Freck led his team 
to victory, scoring 20 of those 
points, but his team (including 
Johnston with 18 points, Are- 
llano with 16 and Leach with 
12) backed him all the way. 
The team as a whole shot a 
notable 100 per cent from the 

line for 4 points. 

The Faculty's 45-39 upset 
over Wold pushed them up 2 
notches in the order this week. 
Evans put in 18 points and 
Garver added U; the team 
shot 65 per cent from the line 
for 13 points to clinch the 

Dias dropped a corres- 
ponding 2 notches after a close 
47-50 defeat by Dowell. The 
team made a good showing 
with only 5 players; Williams, 
Dias and Caracciolcr all scored 
in the double figures with 16, 
14 and 12 points respectively. 

Both Sweeney and Thomson 
hold last week's positions. 
Sweeney was out of play this 
week as the Monday night 
games were cancelled, 
Thomson edged Webster 66- 
59 to raise their record to 2-5. 
Thomson put 23 points on the 
board for his team in this 
game, and Bennett added 14. 

Webster hasn't met with a 
whole lot of luck thus far this 
season. True t recedent, 
the team added *. losses to 
their record this week. A 0-7 
record could be discouraging, 
team captain Webster prefers 
to look at it as a "perfect 
record." A team with an 
attitude like that and Rick 
Faber's legs can't be all bad.

Dortch went on to play her 
opponent for first place — 
Ratledge. At half-time 

Ratledge was one point ahead 
of Dortch with the score 14 to

made the score even. With 
only 13 seconds left in the 
game, Ratledge lost the ball to 
Dortch who made an un- 

orthodox shot that won the 
game 24 to 22. 

Kryger made McLeod work 
for their close win. Miles put 
in 10 points making the fmal 
score 24 to 22.

whether he should pay for 
time on radio. They respond- 
ed by donating jewelry, spec-

teeth. Sale of these items 
resulted in $200, money 
enough to buy 13 half-hour 
time slots on station KGER in

Dear Editor: 

The words that I now write 
are not directed at any indi- 
vidual, nor am I trying to hurt 
anyone's feelings. Seeing that 
the staff of this college doesn't 
have the courage to institute a 
dress code that reflects the 
standards of our Lord, the 
time has now come for the 
people to correct themselves. 
(Ezek. 33:1-10. 8T 199-203) 

Worldly fashions and the 
acceptance of indecent dress 
have come among us in epi- 
demic proportions. I refer to 
the stick pins, broaches, skirts 
that are split in the front or 
sides, see-through blouses 
and blouses that are un- 
buttoned more than just the 
top button. Not to forget the 
buying of much fancy clothing 
or other costly and unneces- 
sary items such as a Cadillac 
or Corvette. (Isa. 3:16 - 4:6, 
MH 204-209) 

Is the acceptance and usage 
of such items pleasing to God2 
Surely YOU don't think sol It is 

indecent for a woman to wear 
a dress that is split or that is 
too tight across her buttocks 
as to accent her shape. How 
does a see-through blouse 
glority God? (By see-through, 
I mean the brassier can be 
seen.) If a woman's breasts 
are considered to be, a private 
portion of her body,, one that 
should be. covered from public 
view, then why would a decent 
woman wear a • see-through 
blouse? What would happen 

through pants and expose his 
underwear for all to see? 
Surely he would be repri- 
manded and scorned. (1 Tim. 
2:9-12, IT 304) 

It is the standard of the SDA 
church that our people should 
not wear jewelry. The reason 
is that the wearing of jewelry 
is self-glorifying. A person 
cannot glorify himself and God 
at the same time. Why do you 
therefore glorify yourself apd 
make yourself a stumbling 
block to the body of Christ? 
Why do you bring reproach on 

the people of God? We are 
instructed in holiness in one 

way, and yet some ,do another 
thing, are not those that go in 
strange ways hypocrites. In 
some places Adventists are 
known as "the great pre- 
tenders"; why do you bring 
this shame pn us by making 
vain excuses for the lusts of 
your eyes? Put this and all 
evil away from ypu and do not 
shame tfie God that has given 
you life. (2 Chron. 7:14, 3T 
362-368) ... 

Knowing, that the .world is 
given over to a reprobate mind 
and seeking for the lusts of 
sensuality, we must be sure to 
flee from their evil ways. Let 
it be a standard among us 
from now on that the jewelry is 
known as badges of Laodician 
indifference against our Lord 
and indecent clothing as the 
uniform of a tease or a 
prostitute. (Rom. 13:11 
14:23. MY,P24),,^,^ ,',,-'

Dear- Editor: 

I'd like tosay a few words 
concerning your article on 
Billie Jean Starr's accident. 

You stated in the article that 
the Hamilton County Rescue 
Squad rescued Billie Jean

effort to reach her, yet no

friends which were with her at 
the time of the accident. In

Black History Week Defended 

Dear Editor: 

It is obvious that the opin- 
ions expressed concerning the 
value of Black History Week 
by three of the brethren went 
to press before the beginning 
of Black History Week. Surely 
the saints will now reconsider 
the eloquent speakers, superb 
music_ and thought-provoking 
movies more than support the 
continuance of this observ- 
ance. It made people perform 
a dying art — think! 

Two sisters asked last week, 
"Why should blacks be 
singled out over other minor- 
ities?" American society has 
singled us out. Three- 
hundred fifty years is a long 
time. No other ethnic group 
for so long has been excluded 
from the mainstream of 
American life. History shows 
us that other ethnic groups, 
after a time, eventually melt in 

the melting pot. What maket. 
the diff^erence? 

We need to face the fact 
that even in the Seventh-day 
Adventist church we have 
serious problems in this area, 
and black Adventists are sick 
and tired of it. Many students 
were unaware of this before 
this week. 

To use the words of Brother 
Benway, we need to be 
"bombarded" and "satu- 
rated" with the love of God. 
We need to stop pretending 

We are truly sorry for yoo 
who feel "bombarded" and 
"saturated" this year. Just

Personal Commitment Needed to Remove Feelings of Black Resentment 

Dear Editor: 

I was extremely moved by 
Ihe letters written to you by 
Mr. Benway. Ms. Longly and 
Ms. Michals in the Feb. 14 
issue of The Southern Accent. 
This letter is written in re- 
sponse to some of the state- 
ments made in the above 
mentioned letters. 

The two chapels of Black 
History and Culture Week did 
not haVe to be attended. Sur- 
prised? It is a well known fact 
that each student has four 
chapel skips per semester and 
by using two of them during 
the week of Black History 
would have eliminated over- 
exposure to the black situa- 
tion. I, myself; helped plan 
the Worships in the Women's 
Residence Hall, and one of our 
goals in planning was not just 

to have black faces on the 
program but to share a style of 
living that is often thought of 
as something that belongs to 
the blacks but not Americans 
as a whole. It was not planned 
to separate, but to enrich. 
White Americans say they are 
tired of hearing about the 
misuse and abuse of the past. 
Well, the news is that black 
Americans are tired of telling 
the stories of pain and agony, 
I am saying that the people 
who wrote letters to the editor 
last week had not even expe- 
rienced one of the meetings 
scheduled for last week before 
they were condemning the 
whole week.

may treat me equally, yet you 
may not consider me equal!

It shows us the place that 
blacks have had in the history

ica and in the Seventh-day 
Adventist church. 

My friends, history has 
been written for our learning

to learn from the mistakes of 
the past. By closing one's 
eyes, ears and mind to black 
history, one leaves himself 
open to repeat the same 
dreadful and dastardly acts 
done in yesteryears. 

Lord, help each one of us to 
bring our individuality into our 
religion — our love and ac- 
ceptance of our brother and 
sister and the acceptance of 
Jesus Christ as our Savior. 

Lovingly and respectfully your 
brother in Christ.

all the minorities of this

me the essence of the rea- 
soning behind Black History 
Week is to help people in the 
majority realize that blacks are 
a people delegated to a week 
of history on the periphery of 
our society, and until we are 
brought into the mainstream, 
there will be a need for 
recognition at least once each 
year. No one complains about

Dimes campaigns, or the Year

Nations but these are all days, 
weeks, months and years de- 
voted to helping a minority be 
improved and reach for a 
brighter tomorrow. The ex- 
istence of prejudice has not 
been wiped out in our country, 
and as long as blacks receive 
and feel the vibrations of it in 
our society, they will strive to 
do something to make people 
aware of how they are not

As Christians we are not 
exempt from feelings of pre- 
judice, and most people do not 
even realize that their careless 
statements are direct slams to 
a people who are striving to 
overcome a history which was 
lost and even regarded as 
worthless. If a movement is to 
be made which will take away 
the feelings of resentment on

have to be delt with on an

Loan and Grant Questions Anstvered 

DGreg Rimmer 

Basic grants, loans and 
student awards do affect a 
student at Southern Mission- 
ary College. 

The following ar 
to some of the 
asked questions: 

/5 financial aid available 
only to poor people? 

No. Financial aid is in- 
tended to remove financial 
barriers for families who can- 
not afford the cost of an 
education beyond high school 
and to fill the gap for families 
who can afford to only pay part 
of the cost. Also because of 
the Middle Income Student 
Assistance Act, more families 
are eligible to receive aid. 

What if I am not eligible for 
a basic grant, can I still be 
considered for a loan? 

Yes. All students must file 
for a basic grant before being 
considered, whether they are 
eligible or not. 

What exactly is a loan? Do I 
need collateral? Do I need 
credit of some sort? 

Loans are funds a student 
can borrow while in college, 
but he does not have to pay 
them back until after grad- 
uation. No collateral is 
needed and credit ratings do 
not affect most loans. 


Cont. from page 1 
tween the two winning teams 
will be at 9 p.m. 
Halftime and between game 

Do I have to pay back grant 

No. This is a grant from the 
government that never has to 
be repaid. 

What is the financial aid 
deadline for SMC? 

Priority is given to aid 
applications completed by 
April I; those completed after 
this date will be considered as 
long as funds last. 

If I am flat broke, can I still 
attend SMC? 

Yes, that is what financial 
aid is all about; your tax- 
dollars make it possible for 
you to receive aid and achieve 
your education. 

What is meant by an award? 

After evaluating the stu- 
dent's need, the financial aid 
staff selects the kind of aid to 
be administered. This sug- 
gested aid award is then 
reviewed by the student and 
accepted or rejected.

Play Features Christ's Family 

Portrait," will be presented 
Tuesday and Wednesday eve- 
nings, March 17 and 18. The 
production will be held in the 
Collegedale Academy Audi- 
torium at 7:30 p.m. 

The play is about the family 
of Jesus and encompasses the 
last three years of Christ's 
life. It begins in Nazareth, 
which Jesus had just left to 
enter His life work and where 
his remaining brothers under- 
stood only that in the height of 
the building season. He had 
left them and depleted their 
working force. 

It follows through His 

istry to His unwelcome home 
and His death, ending several 
years later in Nazareth. All 
His family — except Mary — 
still labor under the delusion 
that they have been disgraced. 

The main characters of the 
play are Tonua Barley (Mary), 
Michele Buch (Mary's sister), 
Craig Boddy, Scott Eivins, 
Johnny Lazor, Frank Roman 
(Jesus* four brothers) Sylvia 
Haylock. Leslie Roman (wives 
of two of the brothers) and 
Michael Avant (Jesus' neph- 
ew David). 

The theme of the play is 
taken from Jesus Christ's own 

words. "A prophet 
without honor, but in his own 
country, and among his own 
kin, and in his own house." 
(Matt. 13:57) 

Dr. Don Dick, chairman of 
the communication depart- 
ment, is directing the play 
with the help of Lisa Kelley, 
assistant director, and Louie 
Parra, production manager. 

Tickets are on sale at the 
Village Market, Campus Shop 
and Student Center. Tickets 
will also be available at the 
door the nights of the play. 
The price for the reserved 
seats is $3 per person (S2 for 
ID card holders).

Opinions * 

Person's Moral Condition Not Always Reflected In Appearance and Action 


Dear Editor: 

I sometimes wish life were 
so simple that 1 could tell a 
person's moral condition by 
his or her actions and appear- 
ance. Appearance, though, is 
only what the word means — 
what appears to be, not nec- 
essarily what is fact. 

True, our appearance can 
and should reflect our rela- 
tionship with God. But that 
doesn't mean we can observe 
someone's appearance and 
then know his moral condition 
or relationship with God. 

Although the clothing 

shock me. 1 must remember 
that a person's relationship 
with God is a spiritual fact. 
This person may not appear to 
fit into my idea of moralitj', 
but this is only an appearance. 
I cannot know the presence or 
absence of a person's rela- 
tionship with God (a spiritual 
fact) by how he appears to me. 
Take, for example, the Bib- 
lical character David. The 
Bible makes plain that a 
person should not take an- 
other person's life. Yet we see 
David, led by God, kill 
Goliath. From appearances, I 
would have to assume that 
David sinned. But actually I 
would say David would have 
sinned had he refused to take 
Goliath's life. He would not 
have been doing what God 
was "leading" him to do. 

In considering this story and 
many others like it. 1 realize 
that although I have not been 
led by God to take som 
life. I cannot accuse David of 
being an immoral murderer 
"^this instance. In fact, I cai 
judge David's relationship 
with God by any e; 
factors. Were it not the 
Biblical authors who implied 
David's motives? 

Similarly today. 1 > 
judge a person's relationship 
with God by his appearance. 
God goes the other waj 
around and, so to speak, 
judges our appearance by oui 
relationship with Him, 

Since I can't always label 
some action or appearance 
coming from an immo 
heart, I can't make it 
standard that jewelry be 
known as "badge; 
Laodician indifference 
clothing which appears to me 
to be indecent as ' 'the uniform 
of a . . . prostitute" as a 
letter to the editor suggested 

The author of the letter also 
asked, "Is the acceptance and 
usage of such items (jewelry, 
etc.) pleasing to God?" Who 
am I to answer any question 
like that about the creato; 
the universe? To me it set 
that God could not be plea 
with the brutal slaying 
animals, yet we see many 
references in the Old Testa- 

the southern accent 

ment saying God was 
"pleased" with burnt sacri- 
fices. I believe that God was 
pleased more with the re- 
sponse to Him which those 
who were offering the sacri- 
fices showed than with the 
burnt offerings themselves. 

In other words, I can't 
always say what is pleasing to 
God in every circumstance. I 
believe an action or appear- 
ance can be right under cer- 
cumstances and wrong under 
other circumstances. The 
thing which makes any action 
or appearance right or wrong 
is one's relationship with God. 
This is part of the incredible 
freedom which God wants us 
all to have. 

Also in my own opinion, 
letters such as the one 1 
referred to earlier, do more to 
give guilt feelings thai 
convict of sin. As 

Campbell said in his chapel 
talk on Feb. 21, "feelings are 
not sin." I would carry that a 
bit further and say "feelings 
are not fact." Just as our 
feelings of love are not a true 

indication of the presence or 
lack of a love relationship, so 
guilt feelings are not a true 
indication of the presence of 
guilt. Since we as humans 
frequently confuse guilt feel- 
ings with guilt, and since guilt 
feelings many times come 
between us and God in what 
could be a beautiful guilt-free 
relationship, I think that most 
things which would probably 
do little but cause guilt feel- 
ings in others should be 

Remember, a relationship 
with God may change our 
appearance, but we can't 
Judge another's relationship 
by his or her appearance. 
Thank you,

SMC Women's Dress Defended 


Dear Editor: 

Mr. Speece gave us his 
opinion of the dress of SMC 
women. ! feel that he gen- 
eralized far too much. I have 
heard guests on our campus 
say that we are one of the best 
dressed SDA college 

campuses, and I do think Mr. 
Speece was unfair, although 
he did not mean to offend. 

We as Adventists are very 

guilty of being critical and 
pointing out other people's 
mistakes ' 'for their own 
good." Maybe we should try 
another approach. 1 wonder 
what would happen if we 
started noticing the good 
things people do and say. 
Everyone knows that you can 
find what you look for.

Dress Does Not Always Reveal True Person 

Dear Editor: 

The following remarks are 
to be addressed not only to 
Steven Speece but also the 
others who have some of the 
same misconceptions con- 
cerning the dress of the 
women (or should I say 
"prostitutes") on this 

I could take the specific 
items, such as tight, split 
skirts, see-through blouses, as 
well as broaches, stick pins, 
etc., mentioned in the letter 
and give just as many reasons 
for wearing them as you gave 
for not wearing them. But I'd 
simply be wasting my time 
and avoiding my intended 
purpose for this letter. You 
see, the important part of a 
person is not always what you 
see on the outside. 

We are all rooted from 
diverse backgrounds, which 
means that one's ideas, 
thoughts, motives and con- 
cepts on dress will be different 
from the next person. I don't 
know of any person on earth 
who can clearly see a person': 

I'd be able to look back on my 
friends and simply discard 
them, because I have come 
close to them.

Starr's Christian Attitude 
Is Witness for God 

Dear Editor: 

I wish to comment on the 
Christian attitude shown here 
at SMC. Billie Jean Starr, 
praising the Lord after suffer- 
ing from leg and back injuries 
from her fall, is a fantastic 
witness for her Father. 




hope that in your letter you 
were not making an attempt to 
judge anyone. 

I happen to have many 
friends who wear skirts with 
slits in them and stick pins, 
and as a matter of fact, I wear 
them myself. But if I were to 
change my concepts on dress 
and quit wearing this parti- 
cular style I really doubt that 

accident to show there is 
Christianity here at SMC? Are 
we held as hostages by not 
sharing our Christianity to 
those outside of our secluded 
valley, as depicted by the 
Thatcher Sabbath School? 
Why don't we live up to our 
reputation of being an ex- 
ceptionally Christian college? 
We have a desperate need 
of Jesus here every day. He is 
our love and our strength for 
the constant battle against self 
and Satan. Each of us has nur 
own mission field here. VVe 
have been helped and 
strengthened bv Jesus, maybe 
through a fellow Christian. 
Let us watch and pray to let 

Jesus' love spread like fire 

every single day through us. 

"To everything there is a 

purpose under the heaven." 
While God has us here, why 
not serve Him and follow His 
plan of life? We should do our 
best in the work that lies 
nearest, by commiting our 
ways to God and by watching 
for the indications of His 
providence. By doing this, we 
prepare for the times when we 
leave SMC. 

As individuals, let's let our 
Christianity shine through. It 
is said that whatever you are 
looking for at SMC you can 
find. As Christians, we should 
be looking for those that need 
Jesus, instead of being 
searched for. 

Let us make SMC what our 
i-ather has planned for it— a 
southern missionary college-

A Woman's Viewpoint on Young People's Dress Urges Repentance 

Dear Editor: 

Speece's letter. I feel that 
there should be a woman's 
viewpoint published. I am not 
a student or faculty member, 
but I observe many acts on the 
stage of this campus which 
concern me greatly. In fact, 
what 1 am about to pen here 
stems from a heart of love and 

I am a fairly young Christian 
seeking God's will for my life 
daily. Before salvation, I lived 
a very sheltered life at home, 
and ] realized that young men 
and women fresh out of 
academy are ready and eager 
to taste the fullness of a 
strange but enticing cup. 1

as it is the suggestion or 
exposure of the feminine 
body. It depends on whose 
eyes you are looking through. 
I realize that being away 
from home with extreme peer 
pressure only aggravates this 
inclination to worldliness. 
What we should be concemec^ 
with is not the actual dress 
and mannerisms of students 
or any particular branch, but 
we as individuals should ask 
ourselves, "Are we going to 
be ready when Jesus comes?"

year, the things I found 

volting were guys with shirts 

unbuttoned to their navals 

who thought they had sex 

appeal and a few ragged pairs 

of blue jeans worn to class. 

This year a problem has 

:annot developed that seems to stem 

young largely from the sheltered 

jeans situation of our campus. To a 

large degree, we are sheltered 

from what goes on in the 

outside world. When a

what the wearing of certain 
styles conveys to the on- 

I refer to the women on our 
campus who wear see-through 
blouses, front-buttoned or slit 
skirts and heavy make-up. The 
sight of any of these in any 
combination reminds me of 
ling lineup of prosti- 

outward sign of intemperance 
as He works with the person's 
cooperation from the inside. 

There are non-converted 
students here — a group which 
we will always have because, 
believe it or not, they have a 
purpose in God's plan, also. I 
know some of the younp 
women here are promoting 
lust and causing disturbances 
for some male students, but 
guys, if you cannot cope with 
this campus situation, what 
will you do out in the "real" 
world. Let God use you'- 


Also, I do not see the faculty 
cowardly hunched behind a 
three-foot thick steel door, 
afraid to enforce dress codes, 
nor do I see them Phari- 
seeistically reprimanding stu- 
dents who should be adult 
enough to reprimand them- 
selves. It may be that these 

men and women know they 
won't change hearts; there- 
fore, enforcement of a strict 
dress code would be forcing 
acceptance, and we know God 
does not force himself on 
unwilling people, so why 
should we? 

We as Christians must live 
in the worid, but praise God, 
we do not have to be of this 
world. It is an individual 
choice. Time is short and our 
duty is to pray for the brethren 
as Jesus told Peter to do in 
Luke 22:32. 

The question is, "Who wui 
be ready?" We should pray 
for one another, taking God's 
loving attitude as our own. 
"The Lord is not slack con- 
cerning His promise, as some 
men count slackness; but is 
longsuffering to us-ward, not

Dress and Conduct Related 

Dear Editor: 

In regard to the letter brought into line by their 
written by Mr. Speece in the peers and everyone abided by 
last Accent, I disagree with the dress code without ques- 
the blunt approach that he tion. This system worked, 
took in attacking people who Only twice did the school 
dress to draw unnecessary 
attention to themselves. He 
does raise a valid point, 
however. There is a very clear 
relationship between one's 
manner of dress and one's 
conduct in his or her relation- 
ship with others. 

1 was privileged to attend 
the Webb School in Bell 
Buckle, Tenn., for four years. 
At that school, the adminis- 
tration and faculty i 

npus are the first to sheer blouses, front-buttoned 
whatever seems to or slit skirts and heavy make- 
physical attractive- up are all tools of the trade. A 
lot of the young women seen 
any day of the week and 
especially on Sabbath on our 
campus could pass for one of 
those prostitutes. 

WTiat is the solution to the 
problem? I feel it is twofold: 
1) the setting of a modest and 
conservative but flexible dress 
code for both 





distinct deterioratit 
conduct of some of the stu- 
dents during these periods. 

I believe that much of the 
problems with PDA and any 
related troubles on this 
campus might be resolved to a 
great degree if a high stand- 
ard of dress, reasonable and 
practical, were to be agreed 
1 upholding a high standard upon and enforced 

of academic and personal de- 
velopment which included 
one's manner of dress at all 
times. The young women 
wore modest attire, whether it 
"/as a dress or dress-quality 
pantsuit, during the academic 
^^y- The young men wore 
dress-slacks and shirt with a 

mously. Students who dress 
like mature, educated Christ- 
ian young adults will act that 
way. Those who dress ac- 
cording to a more casual 
standard leave open the door 
to temptation to act casually. 
Some have enough self-control 
to behave responsibly when in 
adding a dress-quality casual attire, yet there are just 
I these during as many who can't. 

Still, let us never judge a 
person's inner motives by his 
attire, instead, let us each as 
individuals do all things as 
Christ would, were He in our

have observed anywhere else

that dress code. Penalty for 
violation after a certain small 
number of warnings would be 
the loss of the privilege of 
attending school here. 

Attending school here 
should be considered a privi- 
lege, and deserve respect in 
our conduct and dress. The 
expulsion of a few who refuse 
to comply will encourage 
others to shape up. The few 
who leave will be replaced by 
many more who will have a 
higher regard for the college. 

A recent visit to Tennessee 
Temple College showed me 
that they have no problems 
with the way students dress 
and act. If a student persists 
in violation, they are out. The 
students respect the discipline 
and authority. Each year 
the school turns away nearly 
as many applicants as they 
accept. I believe we need to 
learn a lesson from Tennessee 

Our college has standards. 
How long will we continue to 
trample on them? 
William Noel 

Dear Editor; 

After having talked with a 
number of people concerning 
my last letter to the editor 
(Issue 18) on dress code, I 
realize that there is a large 
number of people who do not 
understand the harm in fol- 
lowing the fashions of this 
world. I pray that the Spirit of 
our Lord may come into them 
and show them all things. It is 
imperative that these people 
learn what worldliness is and 
the dangers of its defilement. 
(1 John 2) 

They need to realize that 
they are the princes and 
princesses in the royal family 
of God. Look at the prayer of 
Jesus found in John 17:21. 
Jesus said, "that they also 
may be o/ie m us." We need a 
better understanding of what 
His statement really means. 
To say that Christians are 
royal is an understatement, 
for we are elevated above all 
things. Only God is above us! 

Can't you see now that 

when you conduct yourself in 
any shameful way that you 
shame your brother the King? 
Satan wanted to be glorified 
above even God. Now that he 
knows that we are to be 
glorified above the position 
that he held in heaven, he is 
fUled with a jealous rage 
against us, and if he gets the 
chance he will bring us down 
to the lowest position that is 

Therefore, be grateful to 
Jesus for His mercy and 
conduct yourself in a manner 
befitting a person of your high 
estate. Search for under- 
standing and flee from any 
appearance of evil, (Heb. 

I strongly suggest reading

The Candidate Teaches Bill a True Business

Bill was the trophy of the 
business department at SMC. 
In the two years since his 
graduation he had risen to the 
vice-presidency of a prestig- 
ious business firm. However, 
his professors would have 
been more ashamed than 
proud had they known each 
step Bill had taken to reach his 
rung on the ladder. He had 
made wide use of business 
practices which he learned 
elsewhere than at SMC.

According to Elder Richard

whom were undernourished,

diet of dried fish, oil and rice. 
Deaths from starvation and 
nutrition-related causes have 
virtually been halted in that

continue to seek out those 
pockets of extreme need." 

SAWS entered the struggle 
four months ago when it sent 
two seven-member doctor- 
hospitals to cope with the 
situation. At present there are 
more than 25 individuals 

working twenty-four hours a 
day in four field hospitals to 
alleviate the suffering. 

The next phase of operation 
is the construction of dams 
and irrigation systems for 
certain villages that must be 
relocated. The shipment of 
clothing and medicines, how- 
ever, ' must be continued. 
More than $832,000 has been

donated by students and fa- 
culty of SMC.

Final Summary of AA B^ketball Action 

Well, the statistics say it all. 
Pnisia clinched the AA 
League Championship in the 
men's basketball division with 
a 9-2 record. And the title is a 
well-earned one. The team 
led the league in shooting 
percentages, averaging 69 per 
cent from the line and 42 per 
cent from the Field for 806 total 
points, an average of 73.3 per 
game. Team captain Rick 
Prusia contributed 21.4 aver- 
age points per game, shooting 
78 per cent from the line and 
an unbeaten 51 per cent from 
the field. Team members 
Dave Creamer and Dennis 
Diminich also averaged better 
than 10 points per game, with 
18.1 and 11.9 average points, 

Nafie finished the season 
with a record of 8-4 for a 
not-so-distant second position. 

.._ . 745 total points 

(62.1 average) were backed up 
by a record-low of 685 points 
scored against the team for

\ Academic Departments Restructured into 10 Divisions 


I changes will be 
[he formation of the Division 
of Arts and Letters. Division of 
Biology and Chemistry and 
the Division of Education and 
Human Sciences. The Divi- 
sion of Arts and Letters will 
include the art, communi- 
cation, English, history and 
modern languages depart- 
ments. The Division of Bio- 
logy and Chemistry will be 
the combination of the biology 
and chemistry departments, 
le education department will 
.rge with the Division of 
I Behavioral and Family Sci- 

Dr. Larry Hanson, academic 
dean, explained that the two 
main influences in the for- 
mation of divisions was the 
overlay of subject matter and 
the need to keep each division 
within one building. 

"SMC is a multipurpose 
institution which meets the 
needs of a broad spectrum of 
interests," explained Dr. 
Hanson. "Many colleges 
have specialties that they 
teach such as in a technical, 
.vocational or liberal arts col- 
lege. But SMC tries to meet 
the various needs of different 
academic abilities." 

By the formation, various 
teachers can help teach in 
other areas of the division. In 

of the past when it was necessary 
to have two teachers but 
needed the services of 2'/i 
people, they usually had to 
hire three people. In the 
divisional structure. Dr. Han- 
son feels that it won't be 
necessary to overstaff. 

This will also decrease the 
number of department chair- 
men, reducing the number of 
chairmen salaries and the 
number of people reporting to 
the academic dean. It will also 
lead to the formation of sev- 
eral new courses in the future. 

Dr. Hanson explained that 
"majors will be unaffected by 
the divisional structure. No 
consideration has been given 
to dropping any majors. Fac- 
ulty members will still be 
identified with their present 

title. Only the administration 
of the academic programs will 

Dr. Flovd Greenleaf wilt be 
the chairman of the Division of 
Arts and Letters, Dr. David 
Steen of the Division of Bio- 
logy and Chemistry, and Dr. 
Gerald Colvin of the Division 
of Education and Human Sci- 
ences. The chairmen of the 
other divisions will remain the 
same as this year. 

This is the final phase of the 
formation of divisions which 
the Administration began 
several years ago. The first 
division was the combination 
of the A.S. and B.S, programs 

of the nursing department. 
Other merges have included 
the business department and 
the office administration de- 
partment to form the Division 
of Business and Office Admin- 
istration. The Division of 
Mathematical Sciences was 
the combination of the com- 
puter science, mathematics 
and physics departments. 

The other four divisions are 
the Division of Industrial Edu- 
cation, Division of Music, 
Division of Physical Education 
and the Division of Religion. 

The divisional change will 
officially go into effect on July

Board Issues Statement 

The Board of Trustees i; 
exorcism during their rc' 
statement led to a voluntary resignation of ^ 

The statement was issued in reference to tl 
spirits taking place in the community. 

President Frank Knittel will further explain the situation to 
the students in chapel on Thursday, March 20. 

The Board's statement is as follows: 

"The methodology of exorcism within the Seventh-day 
Adventist Church as experienced recently in Coilegedale is as 
yet an untested practice and i 
misunderstanding and abuse. It is an 
deal of study by our church leaders ii 
practice of resolving church issues, 
impressionable young students who ; 

s subject to confusion, 

1 issue which needs a great 

1 harmony with our church 

A college setting with 

: easily influenced by 

dedicated teachers is not now the appropriate setting for 
experimental ventures in exorcism. There are great medical, 
emotional, and legal hazards involved with college students. 
Therefore, in order to remain connected with the college in any 
capacity, students and staff members at this time will not be 
involved with the practice of exorcism until such time as the 
church has a formal position regarding the issue."

God's Love for His Children Proclaimed 


From what I 
snatches of 

of newspapers, radio, TV and 
'"""■'•^ "" election •""■•• '^^••^ '-^ 

snatches ot conversations — this year is an election year. This is 
when we elect a leader (of sorts) " 

However, in order to select a President of your choice, one 
must first register to vote. You can do this by visiting a local 
post office or city hall and filling out an application. Then in 6-8 
weeks, voila! You became a Registered Voter! But dont swell 
with pride yet, this title is not an empty one. It's a 
responsibility and a right. 

You use it to exercise your prerogative to choose a leader to 
direct our country; you use it to become involved and to compel 
others to follow your good example; you use it to shape our 
government. Each one of us as an individual and a people have 
a right and responsibility to register and vote. Finally, you use 
it for something to write home about. Just think how proud 
Mom and Dad will be when they learn you've taken the 
; and have become a Registered Voter! 


Dear Editor: 

God loves us. He loves us 
with a love so great that a man 
in his finiteness can't compre- 
hend such infinity in a love. 
He loves us with a love so 
great that a part of Himself 
was given to die in our place 
that in the second coming of 
Christ we might be taken up to 
join this God who loves our 
souls. (John 3:16. 14:1-3) 

God so much that we hunger 
and thirst after righteousness? 
How many of us hold to a 
pretense of Christianity yet 
deny God's power to work 
righteousness i our lives? 
(Matt. 5:6. 2 Tim. 3:5) We 
don't really want to hear or 
read God's Word, for it -lays 
open all of our wretchedness 
and rebukes us. Yet, this 
two-edged sword gives en- 

terrible awfulness that it is 
and as the power that sepa- 
rates us. For we, permitting 
Satan to overrun us, have 
come to indulge in sin and 
even to become a part of it. 
We have lost the relationship 
essential to knowing our 
Father and God. The rela- 
tionship essential to make us 
wise to discern the latter end 
that will surely come as a 
result of our rejection of God. 
fJames 1:6, Deut. 32:29) 
How many of us love our 


:vil. This 

Book of Hope points us to God 
and tells us how to have that 
missing relationship. It says, 
"Harden not your heart," but 
give your heart to God today. 
(Heb. 3:7.8) Our probation is 
now. So instead of squander- 
ing away precious time, never 
to be reclaimed, let's give our 
hearts to Him now, if we draw 
near to Him, he will surely 
draw near to us. He has said 
so, and He stands by His 
word. (James 4:8, 2 Tim. 2:13) 

We of ourselves car 
nothing but corruption, but I 
Christ's working within u: 
change the corruption into I 
beauty and holiness. We must 
depend wholly upon Him and 

works, but trusting heaven- 
wards for the grace that only I 
God can give. i 

There are only two roads to 
follow — one that surely leads 
to eternal death and the other I 
to eternal life. Christ is 
road to eternal life. God offers 
us that road of purity for 
way of pollution. Is this I 
something to reject? No! Let's 
hold on to Christ strongly and 
behold Him until we become 
changed, and let's form a 
relationship with our Father in 
heaven through our Brother in 
heaven- | 

As the prodigal son, 
have been in the far coui 
too long. Let's go home.

Paul begins the third chap- 
ter of his letter to the saints at 
Colossae by saying, "If you 
are then risen with Christ. . ." 
1 think it is important to note 
the word "if since not all 
people are "risen" with 
Christ. I've only been on this 
campus about seven months, 
and yet I think 1 can fairly 
state that not everyone on this 
campus is "risen" with 
Christ. (Of course, only God 
knows a man's heart and 1 
don't claim to know who is a 
Christian and who isn't.) 

If then, there are those on 
this campus who are not 
"risen" with Christ, it follows 
that they do have His risen 
spirit dwelling within them 
and are not governed by the 
Law of God, but rather by 
their own worldly consciences. 
With only this severely limited 
standard to govern their 
hearts, it's not really sur- 
prising that they would fail to 
live up to the standards of 
sexual conduct and dress that 
have been advocated in var- 
ious letters to the editor 
during this school year. So 
then, for you who are not 
"risen" with Christ, I have 
nothing to say to you except 
that I extend to you the love 
God has given me for you, and 
I'm praying for you. 1 address 
the remainder of my letter to 

There is a danger, as some 
have pointed out, of becoming 
too legalistic or judgmental 
when dealing with these sub- 
jects (e.g. sexual conduct and 
dress). For example, if a man 
and a woman truly love each 
other, there may be times 
when a spontaneous public 
display of affection is perfectly 
righteous. Therefore, I'm not 
going to try to set any arbi- 
trary rules stating what can 
and can't be done. For one 
thing, the person whose heart 
is truly bent on pleasing God 
won't ask questions like, 
"How far can I go without 
sinning?" The person who is 
truly putting Christ first al- 
ready knows what should or 
should not be done. I will 
simply draw to your attention 
what God's Word says be- 
cause I think it speaks for 

"If you are then risen with 
Christ, reach out for the 
highest gifts of heaven, where 
Christ reigns in power. Give 
your heart to the heavenly 
things, not to the passing 

things of the earth. For as far 
as the worid is concerned, you 
are already dead, and your 
true life is a hidden one in 
God, through Christ. One 
day, Christ, the secret center 
of our lives, will show Himself 
openly, and you will all share 
in that magnificent denouce- 
ment (outcome or final solu- 

In so far then as you have to 
live upon this earth, consider 
yourselves dead to worldly 
contacts; have nothing to do 
with sexual immorality, dtrty- 
mindedness, uncontrolled 
passion, evil desire, and the 
lust for other people's goods, 
which last, remember is a 
serious a sin as idolotry. It is 
because of these things that 
the holy anger of God falls 
upon those who refuse to obey 
Him. And never forget that 
you had your part in those 
dreadful things when you 
lived that old life." (Col. 
3:1-7, J. B. PhUlips) 

I could continue, but 1 think 
that is sufficient. I hope this 
letter will help clear the air a 
little and be a blessing to all.

What do you think of required 
worship and chapel attend- 




Patti Stone, freshman, communications. Coltegedale. Tema.: 
1 know a lot of kids wouldn't go if it wasn't leqoired. I doa't 
think it does them a lot of good to go if they resent it, but it does 
bring all the students together. 

Cathy Cullum. sophomore, communications. Memphis. 
Tenn.: Chapel doesn't bother me — it isn't that bad to take an 
hour out of the day to get the student body together, but I think 
requiring attendance to worships and chapels make people not 
want to go. 

Valerie Dick, freshman, communications. CoUegedate, 
Tenn. : I think they should plan chapels and worships that are so 
interesting that people would go even if they weren't required. 
Being forced to do something always rubs the wrong way. 

David Lee, senior, communications. CoUegedale. Tenn.: 
Worship of God should never be required. The power of choice 
was given at creation. There is nothing gained by forcing a 
student to chapel and to worship his Creator. We should go out 
of love for Christ. 

Vonnie Boling, junior. New Hope. Minn.: I wouldn't mind 
coming just onceaweek for chapel butldon't feel it's worth the 
trouble to come more often than that. Other than that, it's nice 
to see everybody. Worships are different. They maybe should 
be required, but we should just be allowed more than one skip a 

Heidi Martin, sophomore, nursing. Louisville, Ohio: I do 
think we should be encouraged to go to worships. After all, we 
are in a Christian school by our own choice (I hope). But I feel 
the policy for worship attendance is due for some change and 
more flexibility.

Life at Camp Khoa-I-Dang 

During Christmas break 
Student Missionary Peggy 
King worked at a Cambodian 
refugee camp in Khoa-I-Dang 
about 15 kilometers fi-om the 
Thai-Cambodian border. The 
following article is the high- 
lights of a letter she sent to 
the Student Missions club. 

The camp I worked at had 
over 86,000 refiigees with an 
850-bed hospital. The build- 
ing was made from bamboo 
lined with blue plastic. The 
patients have to sleep on grass 
mats placed on bed frames. 
The floor is rock. There are 
only holes in the waUs for 

"nurse," giving shots, pass- 
ing out pills and starting IVs. 
The worst part was watching 
them suffer, especially when 
you knew that under normal 
circumstances they wouldn't 
have to suffer and their 
chances of getting well could 
be better. 

One of my patients was 
going blind; he couldn't be 
helped unless he had a very 
delicate surgery by a spe- 
cialist. Another patient had a 
temperature of 106 degrees 
every afternoon. The doctors 
couldn't diagnose the pro- 
blem, so there was nothing we 
could do but give him a couple 
aspirin and sponge him with 

refugees, as they hope to see 
some friend or family member 
that they are missing. 

Everyone has a sad story to 
tell about Pol Pot's army 
killing family and friends only 
because they were educated or 
about seeing loved ones slowly 
die of starvation and not being 
able to do anything. But they

windows, so by II a.m. the 
flies are thick. 

The hospital was mostly 
filled with malaria, tubercu- 
losis, bacterial pneumonia, 
anemia and malnourished 
patients. The hospital was 
comprised of eleven wards- 
each one was run by ^

German operate the surgery 
ward, the French lead out in 
the obstetrics and TB ward. 
the Catholics direct the inten- 
sive feeding ward (this is 
where the very malnourished 
children are fed special food 
and the mothers are taught 
how to feed them properly). 
The Seventh-day Adventists 
operate the general medical 
ward and the Thai Red Cross 
also operates the general 
medical ward.

the time, so I became a 

The refugees arrived every 
day in trucks. They were 
taken off one by one and 
carefully inspected along with 
their few belongings. They 
then were given a quick 
physical examination and the 
, sick ones were sent to the 
hospital. The rest divided 
themselves up into groups of 
100 and chose a leader (usu- 
ally someone who coufd speak 
both English and French).

The biggest problem of the 
whole camp was water — the 
lack of it. The refugees would 
wait for hours by the water 
tanks waiting for the water 
trucks to come. They would 
get their family's ration of one 
or two buckets of water to 
cook, drink and bathe with. 
When I left, they were digging 
a well with hopes that this 
would alleviate the problem

Students to Assist in Health Fair 

OTricia Smith 

The Southern Missionary 
College Division of Nursing 
and the Georgia-Cumberland 
Conference are sponsoring the 
nursing students who choose 
to participate in the Atlanta 
health fair April 13 through 

Last year the program was 
conducted in six major cities in 
the United States, and in 
April, 1979, the Seventh-day 
Adventists were asked to co- 
ordinate three sites in Atlanta. 
More than 60 SMC students 
manned these areas. This 
year the Seventh-day Ad- 
ventist Church is sponsoring a 
health fair at the Smyrna 

During the week, screening 
centers at areas throughout 
the city will provide basic tests 
for blood pressure, anemia 
and blood chemistry. Other 
stations will be screening for 
glaucoma, hearing, oral can- 
cer, sickle cell anemia, cervi- 
cal cancer and lung capacity. 
Counselors at the fair will give 
advice to individuals on im- 
proving their heath and will 
make referrals when problems 
are discovered. 

The charge for a person 
being screened is S6, $8 for 
optional blood tests. It is 
estimated that 35,000 people 
are expected to take advan- 
tage of the free screenings this 
year at 50 different sites. 

The Atlanta screening pro- 
gram is being sponsored by 
WSB-TV, American Red 
Cross, Blue Cross and Blue 
Shield, with over 250 other 
medical/non-medical com- 
munity organizations partici- 
pating. At least 100 students 
will be needed on Thursday, 
April 17 and will receive lab 
credit for their day spent at 
the fair. Absences will be 
excused from college classes 
and free transportation and 
food will be provided for the

On Saturday evening, 
March 15, I went to the 
cafeteria for supper, and they 
gave almost everyone a carry- ,

eat in the cafeteria. They still 
charged us 10 cents for the

they should have charged us 
for the carry-out when we

that I wish they would start

start making it again.

The Umbrella That Should Not be Put Away 

It has been a common sight 
on campus of late. It comes in 
allsizestofit every need. It is 
available in a rainbow of colors 
and a wide spectrum of styles 
to accomodate any individual 
laste. There are few scenes 
more colorful and captivating 
than watching a foaming sea 
of "it" returning from a 
chapel — one of the basic ne- 
cessities of life in Collegedale. 

This past week we've no- 
ticed some that approached 
the size of canvas cathedrals, 
and others that looked more 
like a skull cap. We've heard 
complaints that several, re-

Christ's protectiv 
forgiveness is much like the 
umbrella. It comes in a size 
big enough for any need. It, 
too, is mobile — it goes wher- 
ever vou do. Like the um- 
brella, it appeals to a broad 
range of personalities — from 
the docile to the dynamic. 

Some people try substi- 
tutes — none of which work for 
long. It is possible to "pur- 
chase" facsimilies that prove 
to be defective and will grow

I suppose every illustration

When the weather is nice you 
can fold up an umbrella and

Not so with Christ's forgive- 
nes! It is needed no matter 
what spiritual wind may blow. 
You can never fold it up and 
put it away. 

And remember, like a large 
golf umbrella, it's best when 
it's shared.

to answer questions that deal 
with the changing economy.

How do you feel about having 
music festival held at SMC? 

Rick Birkhead. sophomore, pre-physical therapy. Calhoun. 
Ga. : I really enjoyed it. Not only did it add musical variety, but 
it also added variety to the females on campus. 

Tonua Barley, senior, commumcations. Decator. Ala.: I 
didn't enjoy it as much as I have in the past but that's because I 
wasn't involved as much this time. I think it's great for the kids 
who come and the people who get to hear it, 

Joy Webster, sophomore, office administration, Henderson- 
ville. Tenn.: It's all right, except for the kids are running 
around and the cafeteria lines are long. 

Lori Fales. freshman, office administration, Hagerstown. 
Md.: I think it's nice that we can associate with some different 
kids from the academies. 

Mike Stone, senior, industrial technology. Columbia, S.C.: 
Personally, I liked it — enjoyed it in academy and brought back 
good memories. Since I'm a choir member, I especially enjoyed 
the festival choir numbers. 

Bill Lopes, sophomore, communications, Pawtucket, R.I.: I 
don't mind it at all — didn't get a chance to hear much of their 
music but it's a good opportunity for the academy students to 
get a taste of college life. 

David May, freshman, chemistry, Elizabethton, Tenn.: I 
wasn't here this weekend, but I enjoyed listening to my stereo 
at home. 

Mark Stubbs, jreshman, nursing, Ringgold, Ga. : Oh I think 
it's wonderful, it's inspiring, groovy (ha ha). We should have

Plane Crash Kills Two Men 

DTricia Smith 

Goldman P. Maynaid. 36, of 
Apison. Tenn.. and Phillip M. 
Gass, Jr., 21, of Trenton, Ga., 
were killed in a plane crash in 
East Hamilton County 
Wednesday, March 26, at 6:41 

Maynard, pilot of the craft, 
was described as an 
experienced pilot, had rented 
the craft from the Collegedale 
Airport just 10 minutes before 
the crash. 

The plane crashed in the 
back yard of Mr. and Mrs- 
Leigh Smith, skidded several 
yards and flipped over, pin- 
ning both men in the smashed 

Tri-Community Fire 

Department rescuers called in 
on the crash and found 
Maynard dead in the craft. 
Gass was revived but died 
minutes after being carried to 

Erlanger Medical Center in 

Friends of the pilot who 
rushed to the scene after the 
crash said that Maynard had 
been banking the craft low to 
Bill Jones Road, planning to 
buzz the home of his cousin. 

After striking 161.000-volt 
TVA power lines the plane 
crashed less than 100 yards 
from the cousin's house. 

One block away, Marc 
Edwards, a volunteer with the 
Tri-Community Fire Depart- 
ment, was standing in his 
driveway talking with his 
father when the crash 
occurred, "We heard a plane 
and stepped over to where we 
could see it. My father said 
that the plane was flying too 
low. It was in a slight left 
back in a descending pattern. 
Right after we saw it, the 

plane hit the TVA lines. He 
lost a wing and went into a 
spin and flip and it ^tatted 
straight down." 

TVA engineers were called out 
after the incident to inspect 
the high-voltage lines strung 
over Bill Jones Road, but none 
of the lines had broken. 

The small Cessna 150 U 
destroyed in the crash was a 
new plane with less than 100 
hours of flight time on it. 

Hamilton County Sheriff 
officials roped off the area 
around the crash sight in the 
Smith's back yard late Wed- 
nesday night. They were 
awaiting the arrival of Federal 
Aviation officials from 
Knoxville to begin an investi-

Guest editorial by Greg Vital 

Across the nation the Presidential Primaries have begun. 

This selection process provides the voters of individual states 
the opportunity to make their choice for the Republican and 
Democratic candidates for president. On May 6, 1980, 
Tennessee voters will be able to participate in its first 
Presidential Primary. Already the major candidates in both 
political parties are beginning to emerge. 

New Deal Democrats seem to find continuing hope for their 
liberalism in selecting Ted Kennedy. Loyal Democrats are 
attempting to follow their incumbent leader Jimmy Carter. 

On the Republican side Ronald Reagan has taken a decisive 
lead. His strong stands on American leadership and fiscal 
responsibility have made him acceptable to both conservatives 
and independents. George Bush is struggling to attract 
moderates who wish Gerald Ford had decided to run. And John 
Anderson, the only "liberal Republican", is finding his support 
mainly dissatisfied Democrats and Independents. 

All political philosophies are represented. Never before has 
America needed new leadership and direction. Our choices on 
May 6 can help set our nation's destiny. Don't wait until 
November to elect a new president. Act now to make your 
choice for the man who can best represent you in November.

The Students' Responsibility to Their College 

Dear Editor: 

Each person who becomes 
affiliated with an institution, 
whether it be social, industrial 
or educational, not only bene- 
fits ft-om the organization, but 
takes unto himself certain 
obligations. Every student 
attending SMC enjoys all the 
benefits that the college offers 
and in turn is responsible for 
fulfilling certain roles speci- 
fied or unspecified hy the 

What is my responsibility to 
the college? As a student I am 
expected to support the prin- 
ciples, philosophies and ob- 
jectives of the college. This 
does not mean that 1 must 
subscribe to the status quov 

thus perpetuating present 
patterns of conduct, thought 
and practice. I may strive to 
bring about changes, 
improvements or modifica- 
tions within the established 
parameters and still be loyal to 
my school. 

If, as responsible students, 
we recognize our fellow 
students departing from the 
"path of rectitude" into forms 
of conduct that are frowned 
upon by the college, then by 
applying appropriate negative 
sanctions we could help 
uphold the standards of our 
institution. Not only must we 
seek to benefit educationally 
or otherwise, but we must 

seek to enhance the s 

The I 

i of 

le or prestige of a 
college is dependent not so 
much on its lecturers or 
president, but rather upon the 
nature of its student popula- 
tion. SMC will not rise any 
higher in the esteem of the 
public than the perceptions 
society holds of her students. 
Let us, therefore, remove from 
our campus those patterns of 
behavior which are not whole- 
some and which are counter- 
productive to us and the 
college. Let SMC remain an 
oasis in the valley for God's 
beloved children.

Shall we continue on in your life as a registered voter? You'

Well, the next step, after getting the go-ahead vote from the 
post office, is to decide who in the worid to help to the Oval 
Office. In order to do that, one must know who is in the race 
(this is where intelligence comes in). Follow up on each 
potential presidential hopeful. Who are they? What were they 
and why? What are their goals? Evaluate the kind of education ' 
and experience they possess. Investigate what they have to

Just think a minute. The person who is elected will guide our 
country through wealth and poverty, in sickness and health, for 
four years. The least you can do is decide, intelligently and 
maturely, who to choose. Talking to others and getting their 
ideas might be helpful also. 

Straighten up and pay attention 1 The person who gets 
elected will see some of us through college and suggest laws 
that can help or hinder your first years in "the real worid." 
Wouldn't it be nice to know something about him? dlw

Dear Hditor: 

We'd like to express our 
appreciation for the article 
' 'Tired of Complaints and 
Cuts" in the last issue of the 
Accent. We've been wanting 
to say something like that for 
quite some time and just never 
did. It seems so easy to miss 
the real reason of being here 
by getting "hung-up" on 
issues not essential to our 
education or our salvation. 

It's like a love relationship. 
If we dwell on the negative 
aspects, the negative aspects 
become foremost in our minds- 
and the beautiful, positive 
aspects once held in top 
priority go unspoken of and 
may eventually slip into '

Spring Sports Highlights 

It's spring! And the SMC 
sports scene is bursting with 
action. Hockey season is in 
full swing in both the Men's 
and the Women's Floor 
Hockey Leagues. Four women 
teams and eight men teams 
make up the league this year. 
Tuesday and Thursday 
evenings are the time to catch 
them in action in the gym. 

It's also the season for 
soccer and, despite torrential 
rains, the sport is alive and 
kicking. Games are scheduled 
for Monday and Wednesday 
evenings — if you're brave 
enough to venture out you can 
find two of the five coed 

(muddy) teams enthusiasti- 
cally running the field. 

CABL is sponsoring a swim 
meet on Sunday. April 6, for 
all those who haven't had 
enough of this wet weather. 
Events begin at 7 p.m. at the 
college pool (the suggestion 
that it be held in the larger 
pool that was once the golf 
course was discarded because 
it doesn't include a regulation 
diving board.) and will include 
450 yard freestyle, 200 yard 
freestyle, 100 yard team and 
individual medleys, 100 yard 
coed freestyle, as well as 50 
yard crawl, breaststroke, 
backstroke and butterfly 

events will also be held. Two

2 - THE SOUTHERN ACCENT Thursday. April 10, 1980 


TTiere are certain traditional signs of spring one,looks for around 
April— the first robin, the budding of the first crocus, and so on. 
After two years in Happy Valley, I have schooled myself to look 
beyond these obvious tokens of spring and delve further for the true 
emblems. I've come up with quite a few. 

First, look around you during a class period (if that's where 
you've decided to go) and note how many people aren't there. If 
you aren't in class, take a look around the dam, recognize anyone? 

Pay attention to the peculiar and nauseatingly sweet smell of Sea 
and Ski coconut oil wafting through the dorms and every other place 
imaginable. After you "scence" the Tropical Blend, watch for the 
color variations on the sun enthusiasts faces. I 've found they range 
|from a bright lobster red to a murky mud brovm. Their bodies also 
tend to have a slightly slippery appearance. 

Another symbol is the lack of winter steam rising up out of 
strategic camoflouged corners. 

Also, around springtime I find that mem- 
tiers of the opposite sex have trouble walking 
straight, they must lean on one another in 
order to get anywhere. 

These are just a few of the signs, if you've 
been looking closely, you'll find that most of 
them are somewhat observable. 

Even without the Good Humor ice cream 
man, spring has come to SMC.

Dr. "Boots" Kuhlman Retires After 34 Years 

n Dana West 

"I originally started out in 
ptiysics, but when I switched 
colleges, they didn't offer it there 
so I went Into biology instead," 
Dr. H. H. "Boots" Kuhlman 

Dr. Kuhlman will retire this 
semester after 34 years of teach- 
ing. He estimates he's taught 
between 8,000 and 10,000 stu- 
dents since he came here in 1946. 

Dr. Kuhlman is chairman of the 
biology department and teaches 
classes in anatomy, physiology 
and biology. He will remain on 
the faculty staff as a part-time 

His office is packed with every 
kind of biology book imaginable. 
He's also kept every record txwk 
he has used since coming here, 
over 34 grade txMks all tolled. 

During his biology training at 
Emmanuel Missionary College 
(Andrews), "Boots" enjoyed 
"working with live material that 
the Lord created" the more he 
studied, the more it pointed to the 
creation. This is what he tries to 
get through to his students. 

After graduating rrom EMC, 
Dr. Kuhlman taught in high 
schools in Oklahoma, Michigan 
and Tennessee before coming 

here. He received his master at 
Peabody College in Nashville and 
his Ph.D. at the University of 
Tennessee- Knoxville. 

He sums up his experiences at 
SMC as "enjoyable and highly 
rewarding in that when I pick up 
an Adventist journal, I'll see the 
name of a student I taught doing 
something worthwhile. It's a 
goodfeeling." A good part of the 
faculty had him for an instructor. 

Dr. Kuhlman is looking forward 
to "catching his breath" and, 
perhaps doing some traveling 
after retirement.

What Steven Would Like to Have Written 

I wos given the opportunity 
write 24 articles this year. 
at's a lot of times to say 
at you want to, but now as 
we come to the end of another 
school year, I find that there''' 

e that could be said. So in 
this week's column, ray next 

the last for the year, I have 
reserved it for writing about 
;tories I never write for one 
eason or another. 

One possibility was "A Day 
in the Life of a Theology 
Vlajor." but since there 
ivasn't enough material to fill 

1 whole column, 1 didn't write 

One I really wanted to write 
vas "The Reason I Didn't Get 
Asked to the Women's Recep- 

Steven dickerhoff 

tion." It would have been 
hard, since I don't know the 
reason why I didn't get asked. 
The one that would have 
helped a lot of people, "What 
You Can Do on a Saturday 
Night when the Saxophone 
Quartet Concert is Sold Out," 
wasn't written because every- 
body already knew what to 
do — anything else!

StrOOt boot Bo wen Clinches Swim Meet 
—^ by patti gentry 

Who is your favorite presi- 
dential candidate and why 
would you urge orthers to vote 
for him? 

Dannie SommerviUe, freshman, pre-med, Asheville. N.C.: I 
would vote for Ford except he's not running. Carter hasn't 
ruined things yet, so I guess he takes my vote, but he hasn't 
inything either. 

Sunday night at 7 the two 
swim teams met to prove their 
skill and finesse. The team 
captains were Bud Greenlee 
and Jackson Bowen. 

The first event was the 
50-yard freestyle. In the 
men's section, Bowen took 
first place, with a timing of 
26.7, one second behind the 
previous record. Richie 

Moore took second place with 
a final time of 26.9. In the 
women's section, Debbie 
Hartsock came in first; how- 
ever, since she is a faculty 
member instead of a student, 
her timings could not be 
considered records. Tamara 
Dortch set a new record of 
30.3, and Cindy Henderson 
took second place at 31.2. 

The second event was the 
50-yard breaststroke. Lauren 
Middag took first place in the 
men's section with 37.4, while 
Glenn Greenlee came in 
second with 38.2. In the 
women's section. Hartsock 
took first place followed by 
Kay Rozell. 

In the 50-yard backstroke, 
both records for men and 
women were broken. Rowland 
Knight set the new record of 
31.4 with Bud Greenlee taking 
second with 33.2 for the men's 
section. For the women, Joy 
Leggett set the new record of 
39.2 and Kay Rozell took 
second with 39.9. 

The next event was the 
50-yard butterfly. , For the

Wbmen's Hockey Folds 

The death of a sport is a 
painful thing. Women's floor 
hockey folded this year due to 
an apparent lack of interest. 

Two prevalent ' 'cardinal 
sins", according to Carla 
Kamieneski, coordinator, 

were players signing up for 
others who didn't intend to 
play, and players signing up 
themselves — then not show- 
ing up. Thoughtless irrespon- 
sibility like this results in not 
only an inconvenience and loss

For the selected dives, 
David Lacy did the I'/i pike 
and scored 38'/j. Mario 
Colangelo got 41 for a I'/i

A Thank You to God for Contrasts in Nature 


The day I've been waiting for has finally arrived— the one in 
which I could write this editorial. This year has reaily been a 
great one for me because I have really made many great friends. 
Most of them have had a great part in helping me get an issue of 
the Accent out each week. 

My staff has been the best. The columnists could always be 
counted on, and the production staffs teamword especially 
shmed through when 1 was out of the office. I have also 
appreciated each one's willingness to stay with the job 
throughout the entire year, even when it got to be in the pits. 
1 also can t overlook the unending support that Miss Frances 
Andrews gave the paper, even during the times when things got 
a httle bit hot. ^ ^ 

And a big thanks to all you readers for your interest in this 
year s paper. This is really what has made it worth workine for 
Keep It up, next year's eidtors will need it. too. 

To sum it all up. the best thing about this who'le year was 
being able to get involved. It has given me a good break from

Dear Editor: 

It has been a truly signifi- 
cant experience for my wife 
and I over the past several 
months as we live here in 
Collegedale as part of the 
SMC family. 

When we arrived here in 
July last year it was a beauti- 
ful summer day. Although it 
rained for several days shortly 
after, the rest of the summer 
was reminiscent of our sunny 
Caribbean and we felt right at 

As the summer faded into 
autumn we noticed the 
grandual change in the flora 
and were really inspired as we 
beheld the grandeur and 
beauty of the changing hues. 
This was a first for us, and we 
made sure to store some of 
those delightful scenes on 

Soon the colors of autumn 
were lost as the leaves 
fluttered one by one to the 
earth beneath, later to be 
carried away by the truck- 
loads. We then looked for- 
ward rather timidly, to the 
cold weather— another first 


Having spent all our days in 
the exotic tropics, we had a 
somewhat hidden fear of the 
cold. Nevertheless we looked 

forward to the snow (which we 
thought represented the 
summit of the cold), and when 
it did not snow we actually 
wished that it would. At last it 
came and we were rather 
surprised to find that it was 
not so cold after all. Not only

As we teuch the petals,

birds, we can indeed giv^

anticipated, but we discovered 
beauty in the impecable carpet 
of white that covered the earth 
and brilliance from the icy 
accumulation that reflected 
the sun's rays like polished 
diamonds from the branches 
of the pine, oak, and maple on 
the hillside. 

Now it is spring-time. We 
see it in the opening buds — 
golden, purple, red, white and 
many other exciting colors; we 
hear it in the chirping of the 
birds; and we feel it in the 
breeze. We know it, because 
everywhere we recognize the 
rebirth of nature. 

Our few months in the 
States and here at SMC have 
alerted us to the tremendous 
contrast of beauty and splen- 
dor that is the dynamic activity 
of the changing seasons. The 
experiences of these months 
have brought new meaning to 
such statements as "whiter 
than snow" and "the autumn 

Ladies of 
SMC Are 

Dear Editor: 

This being the last issue of 
the Accent for the year 79-80, 
we would like to express our 
gratitude to the ladies of 
Southern Missionary College 
for their Christian dedication, 
attitude, and demeanor. We 
count it a privilege to be 
associated with them, and 
thank God that He has blessed 
us with them. The ladies of 
SMC have been a rich blessing 
to us this year, and we would 
like to say thanks, God bless, 
and have a good s 
love you all!

^ Blif ^'''^ Vietnam Should Have Taught Us 

students of SQuthern Missionary CollegB. 

ary Colleoa, 

This week marks the .ui,, 
anniversary of the end of the 
Vietnam war. One would have 
hoped that our experience in 
Vietnam would have shown us 
the true nature of war, and 
that we would thus be more 
hesitant to resort to it or the 
threat of it as a means of 
defending national interests. 
It seems, however, that the 
crises in Iran and Afghanistan 
have shortened our memories. 

A number of leading poli- 
ticians, Ronald Reagan for 
example, are advocating a 
very militarisric, sabre- 
rattling policy towards Mos- 
cow. What's worse, even 
some Seventh-day Adventists 
are supporting this insanity. I 
think they need to realize thaf 
fighting a war and playing 
hockey are two very different 

In May 1975, 1 was on the 
USS Coral Sea (CV-43) an 
aircraft carrier which was the 
flagship of a small taskforce 
steaming for Koh-Tang Island 
offthe coast of Vietnam. Our 
mission was to rescue the 
merchant marine sailors and 
their ship— SS Mayaguez 
Although most of the marines 

in the assult force were aboard 
other vessels, some were 
placed on our ship. There 
seemed to be an almost 
carnival-like atmosphere 
aboard the ship. It was 
something like what I'd ex- 
perience before an important 
high school football game. 
We were all anxious to stick it 
to the Khmer Rouge {Cam- 
bodian Communists). How- 
ever, when the marines came 
back from the operation, it 
was a different story. 

Thirteen had been killed, 
about two dozen were mis- 
sing, scores were wounded 
and the rest seemed so totally 
shattered that 1 wasn't sure 
who to feel sorrier for. They 
all seemed thoroughly beaten. 
We were then told not to talk 
to anyone about the operation 
upon arrival in the Philip- 
pines. We soon found out 
why. Friends and relatives 
began writing us letters telling 
us how proud they were of us 
for the great victory we'd won. 
We were shocked because this 
had been the first time we'd 
heard anyone refer to the 
Mayaguez Operation as a 

victory. In fact, the more I've 
heard regarding the details of 
the operation, the more I'm 
convinced it was a defeat 
made to look like a victory for 
propaganda purposes. 

Perhaps just rattling off 
casualty figures isn't enough 
to bring home the true horror 
of war. Let's use one of the 
marines in the operation as an 
example and let's just say his 
name is Joe. He could be 
anyone's brother or son, only 
the USMC has turned him info 
a killing machine. He goes 
ashore with the rest of ihe 
assault force, fulling expect- 
ing to return in the afternoon. 
However, he's either wounded 
or incapacitated by the gas the 
Cambodians are using and is 
left behind in the mad rush to 
get back to the "choppers." If 
he is lucky maybe the Khmer 
Rouge will tjuickly bayonet 

him, and it'll be over. If not... 
remember how the Khmer 
Rouge executed thousands of 
their own people, many in a 
quite sadistic manner. 
There are some who would.

suggest that since war is so 
awful, we need to arm our- 
selves to the teeth to scare 
Moscow into towing the line. 
Of course, history shows the 
futility of such a policy, but I 
think any Christian who en- 
tertains such ideas should 
prayerfully read what Isaiah 
31 has to say about trusting a 
man and his weapons instead 
of God. We are told very 
clearly and concisely that this 
country needs to live in peace 
and safety in Isaiah 1:18-20 
and in 2 Chronicles 7:14. The 
message is clear, either this 
nation repents and begins to 
sow the seeds of righteous- 
ness and peace or it will reap a 
whole generation of Joes.

anything wrong with it, but 
AA League was not the only 
league playing — there were A 
and B Leagues also. 

I feel that each league 
should get the same amount of 
publicity. (Since the "ways of 
the Lord are equal," Ezekiel 
18:25, should not the things 
going on in "His schools" be 
of the same principle?) 

One might say, "Well, 
room in the sport's 
for all of the 



solution: Cut down on the 
amount of space allotted for 
one league to make room for 
the others. I'm quite sure that 
with the page being the size it 
is, it can be equally divided 
into enough different parts. 

AA League is supposed to 
be comprised of the best 
players, A League the next 
best and so on. After the 
season got underway, it be- 
came evident that this was not 
true. Instead of being judged 
by their skills, players 
chosen by their friends. 
People with greater skills than 
some of those represented in 
the AA League were rudely 
pushed into the A and B 
Leagues simply because they 
were not close friends to the 

myself who feel this way. 
hope that next year and in the 
years to come that the facts 
pointed out will not be over- 
looked or shoved aside as

Why Are You a Seventh-day 

Curtis Kerbs, sophomore, chemistry. Collegedale. Tertn.: 
First of all because the SDA church is Christ-centered. Second, 
the doctrines of this church are completely based on the Bible 
and point in many ways to the focus of the great controversy- 
Christ and how and why to establish a real relation to Him. 

Howie Dortch. sophomore, behavioral science. Deer Lodge, 
Tenn. : I was raised in the Seventh-day Adventist chyrch, which 
i am very glad of because now from what I've studied and 
learned, I believe this is the true religion God meant for Him 
people to follow. 

James Glass, sophomore, business management. Orlando, 
Fla.: Since I was raised in the Seventh-day Adventist church, 
most of my relatives and friends are Adventist. Having grown 
up with a Christian education, I realize that the Seventh-day 
Adventist church is God's true church. 

Jay Brand, junior. psychology/English, Louisville, Tenn.: 
Because according to how the Spirit has led in my own personal 
study. SDA doctrines most accurately enhance and complement 
the gospel of Jesus Christ and righteousness by faith. 

Ginni Lingerfelt. Jreshman, physical education, Maryville, 
Tenn.: I respect the emphasis of our health message when put 
into practice. It's an excellent way to witness to non- 

Greg King, junior, theology. Marietta, Ga.: Because the 
Seventh-day Adventist church is securely founded upon God's 
eternal Word. Also, because it offers a sense of security which 
non-Biblical religions do not have. 

Neroli Hills, senior, journalism. Beltsville. Md.: Being the 
daughter of a Seventh-day Adventist minister is the reason I 
originally became a Seventh-day Adventist. I am a Seventh-day 
Adventist now because after studying the beliefs and practices 
of several other denominations, I firmly believe that the 
teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist church are scriptually 
correct and their views on the Sabbath, second coming and state 
of the dead, in particular, give me a sense of security. 

College Days Declared 
Success Despite Rain 

Despite the rain on campus 
last Sunday, approximately 
550 high school and academy 
seniors converged on the SMC 

Dr. Ron Barrow, director of 
Recruitment and Retention, 
was pleased with the enthu- 
siasm of the seniors despite 
the rain. He stated that he 
expects between 50 and 60 per 
cent of the seniors to return to 
SMC to continue their edu- 

caHon next fall. 

As far as the enrollment for 
next year, the Administration 
sees a drop of approximately 5 
per cent in student enrollment 
for next semester. This is due 
to the smaller graduating 

Dr. Barrow wants to extend 
his appreciation to the stu- 
dents for their cooperation 
during College Days.

"There is No Longer Trail in the World" 

n Melissa Smith 

There are some people who 
are not satisfied with daily 
routine and a status quo life. 
They seek more — more chal- 
lenge, more pain and more 
joy. This is the way it is for 
Doug Kenyon and Mike 
Rieseberg, two students at 
SMC, They demanded more 
out of life and set out to find it. 
On April 15, 1979, Mike 
Rieseberg and a friend began 
the 2,600 mile walk up the 
Pacific Crest Trail. One 
month later, on May 10, Doug 
Kenyon and two friends also 
started the trail. Unknown to 
all of them, Byron Stanley, 
who would soon be a friend, 
had begun the same route one 
day earlier. 

"We drove 1 
fomia, which 
Mexican border," began 
Doug, "But we had to walk 12 
miles down to the border to 
where the trail officially starts. 
We were going to hitch hike," 
he explained ruefully, "but no 
one would pick us up." 

Mike had covered this terri- 
tory a month earlier, but his 
friend quit after 10 days. He 

hiked 20 days by himself, only 
to get very ill from drinking 
bad wafer. Mike ended up 
spending two weeks in Los 
Angeles recovering. 

Soon after that, Mike and 
Doug met up with each other. 
' 'That is one of the best things 
that happened to me," re- 
called Mike, "And after that, 
we met Byron on the trail a 
couple of times. We saw him 

asked him t 

3 Campo, Cali- 

but always, we had a planned 
campsite to meet at the end of 
the day." 

Loneliness was not a pro- 
blem for them. They enjoyed 
the solitude, the time to be 
alone and get to know them- 
selves. "I liked hiking by 
myself, at my own pace," said 
Doug, "but, it was good to 
know there would be someone 
to talk to at camp." 

"We started out with 65 
pound packs," they both 
laughed. "There was so much 
stuff we thought was neces- 

sary like binoculars, nature 
books and telephoto lenses." 
It soon became a game to see 
who could send the most stuff 
home. They even sent their 
tents home. "But it didn't 
matter," Doug expained. 
"The weather was perfect." 

Food was the biggest chore 
of the trail. Parents and 
relatives sent them food to 
predesignated supply points, 
"We weren't totally iso- 
lated," said Mike. "We 
occasionally went through a 
town, which usually consisted 
only of a post office, and we 
picked up our food there."- 
But it was eating the food that 
was the problem. They ate 
oatmeal and more oatmeal, 
dried eggs, granola and pan- 
cakes for breakfast. Lunch 
was English muffins, dried 
fruit, crackers and peanut 
butter, and for supper. . .they 
both rolled their eyes, 
"Vitamins! We got so sick of 
everything else." Byron had 
special freeze dried dinners, 
but we couldn't afford them." 
They forced down mashed 
potatoes, minute rice and 
Kraft dinners to fill their 
stomachs. The dehydrated 
vegetables they pronounced 

When they would reach a 
town, the first thing they did 
was buy a quart of milk and 
relish it, then went to a diner 
for cheeseburgers and real 
eggs. "That's what we 
missed most," 

The food problem was really 
a minor one though. The 
sheer joy of being in nature 
overrid everything. "The 
whole summer was a natural 
high. I felt like ! was the 
luckiest person in the worid.

had been in my life. I was 
happy to get up in the morn- 
ing. I didn't need an alarm 
clock. And. I was in the best

They hiked through the 
Laguna, San Bemadino and 
San Gabrial Mountains, and 
the Mojave Desert. "That 
was the breaking in period. 
We had to walk at night in the 
desert because it was 110

was the Cascades in Northern

miles a day, Doug, Mike and 
Byron reached the Canada

miles later on October 7. "We 
probably ended up walking 
about 2800 miles though, with 
out side trips into town,"

"It just got on my brain to live

Hamley Takes Coimnand of Floor Hockey 

Hamley has taken definite 
command in the Men's Floor 
Hockey League. Still unde- 
feated, the team's record 
stands at 5-0 with 38 goals 
made and only II allowed so 
far this season. Captain Bob 
Hamley put in 20 of the team's 
goals and leads the league in 
individual scoring. 

A 9-7 victory over Velasco 
this week boosted Smith into 
the second-place position. 
The team has a record of 30 
goals made to 27 goals allowed 
ths season. Sweeney matched 
Smith's 2-1-2 record with a 6-2 
win over Tomer this week. 
The team has put in 18 goals 
and allowed 17 this season. 

Blinn dropped to third place 
in the order this week after an 
8-4 loss to Hamley. The 
team's record of goals made 
stands at 22. falling two 
behind the goals allowed. 

Myers is moving up in the 
world; the team shut out Ray- 
burn for a decisive 7-0 victory 
and replaced Velasco in the 
fourth-place position. Ve- 
lasco's narrow defeat by 
second-ranked Smith dropped 
him in the order this week. 

Tomer and Raybum remain 
unchanged in the line-up. 
Both teams added a loss this 
week but exhibited some fine 
playing and sportsmanship — 
which, while it doesn't earn 
the glory, may be more of an 
achievement than winning. 

Overall, things have been 
flowing quite smoothly in 
men's hockey intramurals. 
Players show up and the 
games are started nearly-on- 
time. One complaint has been 
expressed repeatedly (in vari- 
ous forms), however, regard- 
ing the tight reffing. A player 
is penalized at the drop of a 
stick. One hockey game found 
all the players of one team 
sitting in the penalty box 
except for the goalie and one 
defenseman. After nearly ten 
minutes of power plays, the 
defender tossed his stick ac- 
ross the floor just so he could 
crawl to the penalty box for a 

The officials are naturally 
trying to keep the game clean 
and uphold standards of 
Christian conduct. The 
players are trying to play the 

game but may feel inhibited, 
fearing that the slightest bit of 
unintentional body contact will 
be interpreted as a malicious 
intent to charge, trip, push or 
spear another player. 

Perhaps officials should be 
encouraged to call only every 
fifth penalty they see so that 
the game could continue in 
more uninterrupted spurts. 

Or perhaps players should be 
encouraged to participate in 
one grand bash (a la Phila- 
Flyers style) with no holds 
barred — so that survivors of 
the melee would welcome the 
refs restrictions in the future. 
Or maybe officials and players 
should be encouraged to de- 
velop a little more control and 
understanding. Players who 

realize that the "big bad ref ' 
is not just out to get them, but 
wants the game to be a 
success, too, will be better 
able to hold their tempers. 
Refs who recognize that every 
infraction is not a blatant 
rebelliousness and who wel- 
come genuine questioning of 
the rules will be more fair as

Bradbury, Greek and 
Shaffer \Wn Competition 

The Talge Hall Health Club 
sponsored a Weightlifting 
Competition Sunday, April 6. 
Two lifts were recorded for 
each competitor — the bench 
press and the dead lift. Lifters 
were allowed three tries in 
each category with the stipu- 
lation that succeeding lifts 
must be of equal or greater 
weight. Arching the back out 
of the three-point base or 
bouncing the bar off the chest 
in the bench press or failing to 
straighten the shoulders in the 
dead lift scratched the com- 
petitor's record for that lift. 

Wayne Bradbury pressed 
275 lbs. at the bench and 
added 425 lbs. in the dead lift 
for a total lift of 700 lbs. and 
first place for the most weight 
lifted. Ron Shaffer was 
second, putting up 245 lbs. 
and 410 lbs. for a total of 655 
lbs. Todd Lang lifted 560 
lbs.— 200 in the bench press 

and 360 in the dead lift— to 
win third place. 

Winners in the second 
category — the highest 
percentage of body weight 
lifted— were Ray Greek, in 
first place, Johnny Woodruff 
in second, and Todd Lang in 
third. Greek, weighing in at 
123 lbs., lifted 190 and 325 
lbs. for a total of 515 lbs.— 
4.186 times his body weight. 
Woodruff, at 146 lbs, lifted 
225 lbs. and 365 lbs.; his total 
lift of 590 lbs. was 4.04 times 
his body weight. Lang's 560 
lb. lift was 4 times greater 
than his 140 lb. body weight. 

Ron Shaffer was awarded 
the trophy for the best overall 
lifting. Shaffer's total number 
of pounds lifted multiplied by 
his percentage of body weight 
lifted, gave him a score of 
2,494.24 for this special
