Basic Grants to be Cut 

According to Laurel WeJls, 
Director of Student Finance of 
SMC, those obtaining Basic 
Educational Opportunity 
Grants (BEOG) will receive. 
$50 less than expected be- 
cause of President Carter's 
attempts towards a balanced 
budget. If theieligilibility report 
states a grant ot $1,800, 
$1,750 will be what is actually 

Students who applied for 
and were awarded grants last 
year, may not have been 
eligible this year because of 
the cutback. 

There will be no retroactive 
adjustment this year except if 
parental contribution is in the 
negative balance. 

Should financial funds still 
be needed, apply at a local 
bank for a guaranteed student 
loan. There is no interest 
charged while in school and 

during the first nine months 
after graduation, following 
that period of time seven per 
cent is charged. A minimum 
of $30 a month is to be paid in 
a time allotment of 10 years. 

The same acceptance for- 
mula is used on every student. 
The computer responsible for 
the decisions does not take 
into consideration special cir- 
cumstances, such as unex- 
pected medical costs, unem- 
ployment, etc. If, however, 
the parents are unemployed, 
or have just gotten separated, 
divorced or recently died, a 
special Basic Grant Supple- 
mental Form can be filled out 
in order to acquire funds to 
attend school. 

BEOG is set up so that each 
year there will be a gradual 
increase of funds given out. 
Wells suggests that if a stu- 
dent was refused funding this 
year, he should still apply next 
year since money will be more 
readily available.

Reaccreditation Process 
Begins This FaU at SMC 

Frank Roman 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege is to undergo another 
accreditation process this fall 
in order to establish its credit 
standing among other- 
colleges in the United States. 

The Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools partakes 
of the project every decade, 
visiting various colleges and 
.reviewing their self-study re- 

A self-study report includes 
an evaluation of the past ten 
years of the school. These 
reports clearly list the objec- 
Eives and goals the college 
wishes to achieve. 

The school then assigns ten 
committees to the self-study 
report. These committees are 
made up of faculty members, 
board members, and special 
students selected I by the 
school. Dr. William Wohlers 
is heading up the committees. 

There are various areas that 
are covered by this self-study 
report. Attention is closely 
paid'to the academic program 
of the school, and the avail- 
ability of classes in the 
students' major field of study. 

self-study plan. Other areas 
include: review of the or- 
ganization of the adminis- 
trative branch, student affairs, 
and other related areas that 
comprise a collegiate system. 
The process for the accredit- 
ation is simple. The school is 
given two years to prepare the 
self-study reports for the re- 
view committee. During this 
period, the committees are 
involved in the re-evaluation 
of the standards that are set 
up by the Association of 
Schools and Colleges. 

After the two year period is 
complete, the S.A.C.S. com- 
mittee arrives at the school 
and reviews the reports of 
each section which have been 
compiled by the chairman. 

These committees of 
teachers, having already read 
the reports, proceed to inspect 
the deficient areas mentioned. 

They also emphasize the 
positive aspects of the school. 

Then the S.A.C.S. com- 
mittee writes a report of the 
school and decides whether to 
recommend it for re-accred- 
itation. They present the 
report to the S.A.C.S. where 
the final decision is made. 

The Southern Missionary 
College Symphony Orchestra, 
under the direction of Orlo 
Gilbert, has been given ap- 
proval to begin raising funds 
for an Austral-Asian tour slat- 
ed for the spring of 1981. 
Arrangements have already 
been made to visit Sydney, 
Melbourne, Avondale Advent- 
ist College, Fiji, and New 

With 75 members in the 
group this year, it is the 
largest orchestra ever at SMC. 

It will be performing, during 

the year, with such artists as According to Gilbert, it was 

Hale and Wilder presenting the first instrumental group of 

the Messiah, and Bassist Gary that size in the SDA denomi- 

Karr, a world famous record- nation to travel to and around 

ing artist. the Far East. 

The group will also have two 
concerts in the Tivoli Theatre 
to help raise money for the 
Australian tour. 

The orchestra has already 
undertaken another overseas 
tour when they traveled to the 
Orient in the summer of 1979, 
covering nearly 40,000 miles. 

Because of the excellent 
response to the tour, and the 
favorable impression the or- 
chestra was able to make for 
the SDA church, the decision 
was made to undertake anoth- 
er trip. This Australasian 
tour will make the orchestra 
the first group of its size to 
visit the Down Under. 

Schlisner Named New Dean of Students 

Tricia Smith 

Everett Schlisner, dean of 
men at Southern Missionary 
College has accepted the posi- 
tion of* Dean of Students, 
replacing Dr. Melvin Camp- 
bell. The decision was made 
later in the summer and Dr. 
Frank Knittel, president of 
S.M.C.. has requested that 
Schlisner also continue his 
duties as head dean of men. 

"One of our major goals for 
this office is that we remain 
student oriented" stated Sch- 
lisner, "Our students needs 
must be met with the best 
programs possible. This year, 
that is our main res- 


r also stated that he 

will be available to students 
for discussions in social areas 
and any other of their needs. 
He is also planning to be 
available in the lobbies of 
Talge and Thatcher Halls on 
alternating Wednesday nights 
from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

Ted Evans, dean of men, 
has accepted many of the 
major duties from Schlisner 
and one of his new assistants 
is Ron Qualley, former dean of 
men at Sunnydale Academy. 
Qualley has also worked as a 
dean at Walla Walla College 
and Forest Lake Academy. 

Dr. Melvin Campbell has 
accepted a teaching position in 


Department. "Forsome time, 
I have been interested 
time teaching, which offers i 
different kind of involvemen' 
with the students^ he reports. 
"I have missed the dynamics 
of a classroom and am now 
enjoying them once more."

Starting over again is not one of my favorite things 
to do. In fact, it rates right down there with shaving 
my legs. But, like shaving, it has to be done. 

Starting over is uncomfortable, as is shaving, 
you've got to adjust so as not to cut yourself to 
shreds. You've gotta adjust to new places and 
experiences when you start over. 

Don't shave too fast or you'll wind up with razor 
bum and we all know how comfortable that feels. 
Start over slowly, plan and organize. It's all new, 
.make sure you slaken your speed to do it right the 
first time. If you shave fast, you may miss a spot, or 
not do as good a job and those horrible nubs will 
appear and that would never do. 

Allow yourself time to start over and shave your 
limbs; you'll end up with a better, easier time and 
silky, smooth-shaven legs.

large nunija- cf studoits 

Craig Boddy. sophomore, journalism and broad- 
casting. Douglasville, GA.: Initally, it's something 
of a pain for all concerned, but it does provide for a 
wide diversity of backgrounds and personalities, and 
that's good for any campus. 

Felicia Wellborn, senior, office administration. 
Los Angeles, CA: I think it is great that so many 
students can be exposed to a Christian education. 
Our school family is growing; the more the better. 

Fred Land. Junior, communications/religions. 
Atlanta. GA: I tan see the point of not turning 
anyone away, but consideration should be taken for 
the problems of accepting more students than we are 
able to handle. Of course, with the extra money that 
will be coming in I'm sure steps will be taken to 
expand our facilities to handle the crowd. After all, 
who enjoys waiting in lines 15 minutes longer than 
we used to, and who enjoys having two or more 
roommates when facilities only efficiently handle 
two in a room? 

Steve Green, senior, chemistry, San Diego, CA: 
Well the east side of the new wing doesn't seem to 
mind. Everyone seems to keep an eye on that 
window by Dean Evan's apartment with the rag dolls 
in it. ^ 

Soger Burke. Junior, theo. Purvis. MS: I think it is 
fantastic. I realize, however, that some of the dorms 
are packed tight especially the girl's dorm, but I 
think we can remedy that by building an annex onto 
the annex, or at least the school could order some 

Sylvia Sides, freshman, office administration. - 
Pensacola. FL: I think it's great. Being a freshman 
It s a new and different experience. The dorms are a 
little crowded, but it's fun meeting new people and 
being here. 

Tracy Harris, sophomore, psychology. Calhoun. 
GA: I understand that some of the students had a 
difficult, if not impossible, time trying to get into the 
classes they needed. Hopefully if they accept this 
many students again, more classes will be opened or

: Introspect: wisdom from Kings & Wiseman: 




Sunday, August 24 Dear 
Diary; Arrived today at 
Southern Missionary College 
for the first time. Was told I 
would be staying in Jones 
Hall. After searching for an 
hour through the men's res- 
idence hall trying to discover 
exactly which "hall" was 
Jones Hall, someone finally 
told me that it was another 
building. Well, I found it. 
Before signing off tonight, I 
would like to make a res- 
olution at the beginning of the 
semester. I resolve to spend 
time with the Lord each day-a 
few minutes in prayer and 
Bible study. I have been 
yearning for a new start in my 
Christian experience. Until 
next time. 

Thursday, August 28 Dear 
Diary: School is progressing 
well so far, even though I am 
still trying to become ac- 
customed to the schedule. 
Today I went to Hackman Hall 
at 8 a.m. for Foundations of 
Biology. At 8:30, I realized 
two things: (1( Biology does 
kneel with my roommate in 
was the only male in a roomful 
of girls taking some kind of 
nursing class. I have kind of 
forgotten my resolution I 
made the other night. (Well, 

one night I remembered to 
pray, but, I didn't want to 
kneel with my roommate in 
the room, so 1 prayed in bed). 
I tried to arise early yesterday 
to read my Bible, but I didn't 
wake up till 7:45 and had to go 
to biology without a shower or 
anything. I'm sure God 
understands because I'm so 
busy. I must go down to the 
rec room and watch television 
now. Until next time. 

Thursday, September 25 
Dear Diary: Am still keeping 
really busy. Played both 
tennis and softball today, and 
plan to go swimming tonight. 
You might remember the res- 
olution I made a few weeks 
ago. I have discovered the 
best way to keep it. Instead of 
awaking early in the morning 
to study my Bible, (I'm too 
tired), I dropped psychology 
(too hard), and added Teach 
ings of Jesus. (Boy, is it 
easy). Therefore, I have a 
religion class everyday, and I 
can count that as my Bible 
study time. I did decide to try 
out my prayer life tonight-it 
didn't work. I don't know 
what went wrong. After 
claiming a vei e in John 14 
where we are promised "any- 
thing", I called that cute

she already had plans and told 
me not to wait til! Thursday

don't know why the Lord 
didn't stick to His promise. 
Until next time. 

Tuesday, October 14 Dear 
Diary: We won our intramural 
game today. I probably 
shouldn't have played with 
that big biology test coming 
up tomorrow. Supper at the 
CK was sure good. I really 
shouldn't have drank that 
second milkshake or eaten 
that Snickers, since I don't 
need a foggy brain while 
studying biology tonight. Oh 
well, I'll pray for a clear mind. 
I think I'd better claim that 
text in James 1 for wisdom. 
(Boy, do I need it after 
sleeping through class the last 
two days. But, I'm sure the 
Lord will come through this 
time). Will let you know 
tomorrow how the test turned

Taxidermist Donates Collection 

Tricia Smith 

The biology department of 
Southern Missionary College 
has recently received part of 
the late Harry K. Ott Collec- 
tion, consisting of 64 birds. 10 
mammals, four reptiles, three 
fish, and one set of elk horns. 

Ott began his taxidermy 

career as a hobby which 

gradually developed into a 

I business. Before his death, he 

donated a large quota to 

I Andrews University and now 

I his children have given SMC 

the remainder of this family 

These mounted specimens 
are show items and include a 
golden eagle, a red skunk, and 
an albino crow. Most of the 
collection are birds of prey. 

Roy Battle, Guidance Coun- 
selor at Collegedale Academy, 
and friend of the Ott family, 
made the initial contacts and 
then brought the collection 
from Phoenixville. PA to SMC 
in the Collegedale Academy 
touring bus on registration 


The biology department, at 
present, is planning for a 
showcase to be installed in the 
lower section of Hackman 

"We really can't put a price 
on how much this unique 
collection is worth" stated Dr. 
Steen. "but some have valued 
it between $6,000 - $7,000. 

The display will be com- 
pleted as soon as possible, if 
all goes according to plan, 
within a couple months. 

Gimpus Ministries Sponsors "Destiny" 

Frank Roman 

Campus Ministries is spon- 
soring a new drama group at 
Southern Missionary College 
called "Destiny". 

The group will consist of 
devoted young people who 
display an interest and talent 
n the field of dramatics. 

There will be fifteen actors 
md actresses who demon- 
strate an ease in basic drama 
skills such as stage whispers, 

I staee position, diction, etc. 
It will be one of the most 

t challenging programs the stu- 
dents have had the opportu- 

i nity to work on" remarked 
Campus Chaplain Jim Her- 

Destiny will Offer tech- 
niques of evangelical witnes- 
sing through mimes, short 
plays, skits, and other related 
areas of drama. The group 
will perform anywhere from 
city parks to auditorium 

The style of the group is 
simple. There will be no 
excessive costumes or props. 
The setting is left for the 
imagination of the viewer. 
This will give the audience an 
opportunity to get involved 
with the play. 

The groups will peiform 
short skits during Campus 
Ministries' chapels which will 
be held twice a month. They 
will promote Blood Assurance, 
Bonnie Oaks, and various 
other Campus Ministries acti- 

There are scheduled trips to 
different academies such as 
Bass Memorial, Georgia- 
Cumberland, and Highland 
Academy. A week long Flori- 
da trip administering to differ- 
ent churches in the Miami and 
Fort Lauderdale area is also 

Auditions are September 
16, 17, and 18 from 7:00 p.m. 

to 10:00 p.m. They will be 
held in the Student Center 
Cube Room. Those wishing to 
audition are to notice the day 
on which they must try out. 
This is according to the first 
letter of their last name. 

Phone Access Restricted at SMC 

The dial nine access out of 
Southern Missionary College 
was restricted to on campus 
access as of August 1, 1980. 
A. W. Barnes, executive vice 
president and general man- 
ager of the Ooltewah-College- 
dale Telephone Co.. an- 
nounced this restriction 
during the summer, leaving 
no option for any other action 
by the college. 

Because the students at SMC 
are not recorded with South 
Central Bell as "subscribers", 
the ratio of trunks versus the 
number of registered sub- 

scribers is inaccurate. To bt 
subscriber, one must pay the 
base rate for telephone ser- 
vice. At the present time, 
SMC is charged $4.20 per 
phone, while the base rate for 
Collegedale is about S14. This 
inaccurate ratio of subscribers 
to trunks (27) overioads the 
system, making it difficult for 
local residents to call Chatta- 

The phone company did not 
offer to keep the dial nine 
access and raise the perphone 
cost to base rate at SMC, 
because more trunk lines 
would have to be installed. 

Should the option have been 
available, however, it is 
doubtful that SMC could have 
afforded the raised rate of 
approximately $77.00. 

The phone limitation is 
supposed to help ease evening 
line conjestion, making it 
easier for students to place 
and recieve calls on campus. 
"I appreciate what little flack 
has come from the students, 
commented Business Man- 
ager Richard Reiner. "And in 
another few years the phone 
situation will no longer raise

Sign-out Questioned 

We agree. Enough already about it being a new school year, 
but Dana and I did want to fake an early opportunity to let 
everyone know our objectives for The Southern Accent. 

A school newspaper is for the student body, and while news 
does have a secure place, we don't feel it should monopolize the 
pages. A college student's lot is not an easy one. So through a 
series of features dealing with the problems facing college 
students, we want to analyze and present possible solutions and 
alternatives. But, since life is not always a problmen, we will 
present the lighter side of SMC as well. 

Religioun is a very vital part of the college experience and it is 
an area not to be neglected. Dana and I felt that, although a 
weekly religious column with a thought is good, a real delving 
into some of the churches' controversies that affect us as 
Seventh-day Adventists would be better. Our religious editors 
will not have a weekly allagory. but rather, frequent articles 
discussing current dilemmas to help students decide for 
themselves where they stand, hence, the name "Introspect. 

"Diversions" is also a new area of The Southern Accent. As 
far as possible, we will outline activities at SMC, as well as in 
Chattanooga, to suggest unique variations to the college 

Since this is a student newspaper and because Dana and I 
don't claim to have the corner on the market for good ideas, we 
invite the students' input and observaions.

To the President, Dean of 
Students, Board of Trustees, 
and students of SMC, and The 
Southern Accent. 

I have some questions on my 
mind, and I'm sure many of 
my fellow students have some 
of the same questions, concer- 
ning the rule change requiring 
cards to be filled out and 
handed back at the end of the 
church service. 

Does the college have the 
authority to legislate church 

attendence theologically? 
Possibly, this could answer all 
the other questions, but by 
far, this is the most significant 
of all. 

Second, is it all that 
important to attend an organ- 
ized church service every 
week? Does church every 
week contribute to a true 
Christian life-style? Can't an 
equally important benefit 
come from worship in a non- 
conventional method? 
The third question: Is strictly 

Sign-out Answered 

Dear Editors: 

Several people have asked 
the question as to why there 
has been a policy concerning 
mandatory church attendance. 
I do not feel the policy has 
changed. We have, however, 
made a change in our method 
of record taking for church 

The major reason for this 
change stems from the fact 
that in the spring of 1980 it was 
observed by the residence hall 
deans that approximately 50 
percent of the students were 
attending church service here 
on the SMC campus. There 
were a few students who 
attended churches in the sur- 
rounding area, but according 
to our estimate not more than 
10 percent of our student body. 
With these figures in mind we 
discussed some new ways to 
encourage regular Sabbath 
School and church attendance. 

The method of collecting 
attendance cards at the church 
seems a bit obtrusive to some 
people and we are not claim- 
ing this to be the perfect way 
to take record, but we are 
experimenting with other 
methods. We will continue to 
do this until we find a system 
that seems to work well for 

We feel that regular Sabbath 
Schopl and church attendance 
is very important and that it 
should be an integral part of 
the life style of Seventh-day 
Adventist Christians. Spas- 
modic church attendance or 
non-attendance is a bad habit 
to develop and due to the fact 
we are a training institution 
we feel that this should be a 
part of the training of students 
who attend Southern Mission- 
ary College. 

We basically have only three 
major areas of requirements 
for our residence hall stu- 
dents; Number one is wor- 
ships, number two is our night 
check system and number 

three is Sabbath School and 
church attendance. In looking 
at our whole situation we feel 
it is not unreasonable to 
require our students to attend 
our Sabbath services. We feel 
if we would look at the 
situation with a positive atti- 
tude-looking for the good that 
can come from regular Sab- 
bath School and church at- 
tendance, many of the ques- 
tions now being raised would 
be alleviated. 

It would be great if every 
Southern Missionary College 
student would be at our Sab- 
bath services each week with- 
out having to be checked on or 
asked to turn in an attendance 
card. However, our experi- 
ence over the past years in 
working with our own students 
and checking into programs in 
other Seventh-day Adventist 
colleges shows that many 
students simply do not attend 
these services on a regular 
basis unless some kind of 
stipulation is stated requiring 

regulated private life the 
per way to train adults for ti! 
unfriendly world outside 
SMC, which most of us u- 
have to deal with when? 
graduate? ' 

Lastly, are the students realh 
that poor at making vajn 
judgements? Have they p, 
that poor a record that surf 
drastic means of control mai 
ditory to control the studeni 

mandatory attendance. 

We would like to point o 
that if you do not feel comfor

Helpful Hints on 

V\ow to Sur^i/e 

Tricia Smith 

You've probably got one million things on your mind right 
about now. Are you going to get along with your roommate? 
Your deans? What are you going to do about a major? Well, 
relief is m sight. We have put together some helpful hints to 
guide you through this trying time. 


1) Keep in mind, most freshmen don't know what they'd like 
to major in. and if they do, aren't clear about what profession 
they'd like to go into. 

2) Give your school a fair amount of time before you decide 
you hate it and want to leave. 

3) Pick the friends and the major that you want, not who or 
what everybody else tells you is best. Listen to and consider 
what other people say. but rely on yourself. Know when to ask 
for advice, and what to do about it. 

4) Try to be prompt to all your classes and don't get in the 
habit of skipping. Not only could it hurt your grade, but it could 
set a pattern for negligent behavior in the future. 

5) Don't take yourself too seriously or things will affect you 
more than they should; don't think a bad grade is a terrible 
failuns , or one Saturday night spent alone means you're a social 

6) If you need help with financing your education, check with 
the Student Finance Office about financial aid programs that 
you may be eligible for. 

September 11, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 


4) Learn to be patient with others. Dorms are noisy and 
crowded and if someone is being unreasonably loud, speak to 
them politely about it. Don't get run over because you are too 
shy to say anything." {Bernard Hushdown) 

5) "Rememberthatyouareoneof your best friends. Learn 
to deal with times spent alone and don't always rely on others 
for your entertainment." {Sharon Shutaway) 


1) Make up a study routine and stick to it. 

2) Get to know the different areas of the campus and where 
all your classes are. 

3) Remember, the library 

I great escape from a noisy 

4) Grades count right from the start, so try to do your best 
right off. Otherwise, bad marks can drag your average down for 
the rest of your college years. 

5) Mom is not here to nag about studies anymore, so develop 
some discipline for yourself. 

6) Ifitishardforyoutosetup a study system, the "reward" 

method might be for you, e.g., "If I finish two chapters in I 

can go out for a while." 

1) Three umbrellas will be a great necessity for the monsoon 
rains and the "borrowing" that will evolve after Tuesday, 
Thursday chapels. 

1) One wav of developing self-discipline is through sports. 
Don't just sit around talking with friends, head for the track, 
pool, or gym. You'll meet new people and share new ideas. 

2) "Don't worry. Mom. I'm eating right" is not a bad policy. 
Without the proper rest, diet, and exercise, you can become run 
down quickly. 

3) Onepre-writtenform letterforeach month to your parents

ew tube socks, E) all of the above.

others you meet. 


' roommate and 

1) "Write to your roommate in the summer and decide on the 
colors of your room and who will bring the stereo, glass-cleaner, 
iron, etc." (Patty Planning) 

2) "Don't think that the two of you have to be the best of 
friends, merely establish a compatible living arrangement." 
(Nellie LovingJ 

3) "When problems arise, don't let them build. Talk things 
out and try to clear the air." (Mandy Sue Moore) 

4) "Set aside certain times for studying, rest, and socializing 
so your time may be used wisely." (Andrew Smart) 

3) Make time in your week for those little things that may not 
be a joy to do. but make you feel better, i.e.. clean laundry. 



Above all, let's remember that college can be a very 
rewarding experience with all the new friends, learning of new 
places and, more important, where you are going and how to 
fulfill yourself in a way that you wiil remain proud of. 

For the Record 

What adjustments have you had 
to make in coming to college? 


1) "College is not only for studying. You will have the 
opportunity to learn about different races, religions, and some 
of the unique things other people do so take advantage of it." 

(Lawrence Miller) 

2) "Don't run home every weekend. You will miss a lot of 
opportunities to meet and socialize with different people and 
broaden your scale of friends." (Bunny Group) 

3) "Set aside time daily to socialize, even if you feel too shy. 
This is your year to get to know people, so be friendly and keep 
an open mind." (Sally General) 

Andy Nail, sophomore, biology, Calhoun. GA: There's plenty 
to eat but no food served on campus. 

Shirlee Kline, Junior, elementary education, Smithsburg, MD: 
There sure are a lot more assignments to complete for the same 
number of classes, compared to what we had in academy and 
adjustment to my old roommate(alias the author of this column). 

David Denny, sophomore, physics, Knoxville, TN: More studyl 
Learning to associate with a wider number of people, more 
responsibility because of greater freedom and the opportunity 
to make more decisions on my own.

Dickerhoff Strikes Back! 

Dear Editor, 
- To the faithful few who 
noticed that my column wasn't 
in last week's paper--it's true. 
I will not be writing for the 
paper this year. 

But wait! Before you go 
tearing off a letter to the 
editors at this outrage, I have 
a word of explanation. It's not 
that I wanted more money, the 
three d ollars a wee k was 
enough, and besides. I needed 
to lose some weight anyway. 
It's not true that I wanted the 
name of the paper changed to 
the "Southern Dickerhoff." 
First of all, I don't think it 
could fit across the paper. 

The reason I'm not writing 
is that I don't have the time. 
Taking 16 hours and woi'king 
at the bakery, plus trying to 
keep up with all the calls I get 
from Time and Newsweek, I 
just can't find the time to do a 
regular column. 

For the freshmen who did 

not get a chance to read my 
column, the college has just 
opened the "Steven Dicker- 
hoff Room" in the library. All 
the columns can be found 
inside the vault and are en- 
closed in glass casing. Or, if 
you don't want to stand in 
line. I overestimated my rela- 
tives, so you can stop by the 
room{C-2). I have a few boxes 
of papers I'll be glad to give 
out. Autographed copies will 
be extra. 

I would like to clear up 
something that is causing 
gn^at concern throughout the 
college. I tried to keep it 
quiet, but somehow it leaked 
out. My roommate is a PE 
major. It's not my fault. Last 
year he (Steve Martin) was a 
music major. Over the sum- 
mer he took a trip out of the 
country and when he got back 
from California he had 

I really kind of like having a 
PE major for a roommate. All 
his clfisses are easy, so I don't 
have to be bothered by read- 
ing his assignments to him. 
and when I'm trying to get to 
sleep, he doesn't talk late into 
the night, because (I don't 
think he can talk.) The only 
thing he has said since school 
started is, when 1 threw a wad 
of paper into the trash can, he 
shouted, "Two!" 

I would like to stress again 
that everyone stay off the 
backs of the editors. They 
begged and pleaded for me to 
return. I think the only reason 
they wanted me was to fill 
some space every week, but I 
figure that more space will be 
filled \vith angry letters than if 
I had returned. And I just 
might write another article if 
the letters don't come in.

,lllirOS13CCr« wisdom from Kings & Wiseman] 
Living Amidst Fulfilled Prophecy 

Nearly 136 years ago, 
according to a large group of 
serious Bible students from 
many faiths, Jesus was sup- 
posed to have come. To this 
group, who were the fathers of 
our church, God gave extra 
understanding in regards to 
the Biblical interpretation, 
which had caused them so 
much heartache and bitter 
disappointment when Christ 
did not return as they 
expected. Thus, the message 
of Christ's entrance into the 
Most Holy Place of the heav- 
enly sanctuary to begin the 
work of judgement, began to 
be proclaimed. 

That this special message has 
been both fundamental and 
foundational to our church is 
denied by none. Yet, through- 
out the years, numerous at- 
tempts have been made to 
challenge this "trademark" of 
our church. However, none 
have been successful enough 
to alter significantly the origi- 
nal message. 

It is interesting, yet sobering, 
to note that, departure from 
the truth, especially in connec- 
tion with the sanctuary mes- 
sage, was foretold by God's 
prophet. Ellen White, (see 
Evangelism pp. 221-224. also. 
Selected Messages. Book 2 

pp. 387-391). 

On the other hand, God 
designed us to be searchers of 
the truth. Beliefs can never be 
simply handed down from one 
generation to the next. Rather 
each person must wander out 
into the night of the desert and 
writhe with God until truth 
becomes so real that he orders 
his life by it, and will disavow 
it for no reason. 
The church through the years 
has itself initiated various 
study groups designed to ad- 
dress certain problems which 
are associated with the Bible 
texts from which the sanctuary 
message is drawn. In addition.

on October 27,1979, a religion 
professor at Pacific Union 
College, Dr. Desmond Ford, 
gave a public lecture at an 
Adventist Forum meeting, 
wherein he raised many of the 
same problems that the 
church's study groups have 
faced. Then, he set forth 
solutions which seem to be 
contrary to the church's origi- 
nal sanctuary message. Be- 
cause of the widespread publi- 
cation and publicity of his 
views, which in turn, caused 
much discussion, debate, and 
perplexity, the General Con- 
ference felt : that Dr. Ford 
ought to work with other 
church scholars in an effort tyo 
church scholars in an effort to 
see whether or not his views 
were sound in regards to both 
the Bible and to the Spirit of 
Prophecy. This was accom- 
plished in the form of a study 
leave for Dr. Ford. During this 
time, he worked intensely over 
his Endings along with the 
group of scholars. Finally less 
than one month ago, he was 
given the opportunity to pre- 
sent his conclusive discoveries 
before a large body of church 
leaders and scholars which 
met in Colorado. There, the 
church's official decision was 
to hold to the message as is 
understood today. Certain 
views of Ford's were held to 
be i n error in regard to the 
church's position. 

But how does all of this affect 
us who are quietly and. per- 
haps ignorantly plowing along 
here at SMC? It turns out that 
there has been and will be 
great effects. 

For one thing, as was 
evidenced by the panel dis- 
cussion which took place, Au- 
gust 30. here in Collegedale, 
that many of our own religion 
department scholars feel the 
need for further study on the 
questions Ford resurrected. 
At the same time, we can, we 
must trust God's guidance in 
the concensus opinion of our 
church leaders on this issue. 

Perhaps, the greatest con- 
cern SMC scholars voiced was 
actually first penned many 
years ago and reads: "it is of 
the utmost importance that 
ALL should thoroughly inves- 
tigate these subjects (speak- 
ing of the sanctuary doctrine) 
and be able to give an answer 
to everyone that asketh them a 
reason of the hope that is in 
them" (Great Controversy pp. 
488-489-emphasis supplied). 

This statement becomes even 
more significant today as 
there is a general feeling that 
a split in the church is 
possible. Fellow students, 
truly we live in the most 
solemn time; a time when the 
message of the prophet Amos 
is most appropriate. "Prepare 
to meet your God, oh Israel." 

Editorial Note 

If you are an average Sev- 
enth-day Adventist, you have 
probably been greatly con- 
fused by recent events con- 
cerning the "Sanctuary Doc- 
trine" and Dr. Desmond Ford. 
Perhaps you have responded 
by trying to ignore the situa- 
tion, hoping the problem 
would be quickly solved. Or 
maybe your response has been 
to label with criticism one of 
the two participants in the 
discussion, and this may have 
produced short periods of 
inner satisfaction, which 
quickly gave way to despair. 
Perhaps you do not know 
which direction to turn and in 
your troubled confusion you 
yearn for a secure anchor, 
something to shelter you from 
the stormy seas of doctrinal 

There are three such an- 

Anchor #1 - The Word of 
God-God's Word, be- 
queathed to us in the Holy 
Bible and through the Spirit of 
Prophecy, has never failed. 


While proving a 
inspiration and comfort to 
many, it also withstood the 
fires of persecution and the 
test of criticism. "The grass 
withers, the flower fades, but 
the Word of God stands 
forever."Is. 40:8 (NASB) 

Anchor ff2 - The Church of 
God-Though the remnant 
church may sometimes stum- 
ble, it will never fall for it is 
built upon a secure founda- 
tion. Jesus Christ, speaking 
of Himself stated, "upon this 
rock 1 will build My church; 
and the gates of hell shall not 
prevail against it." Mt. 16:18 

Anchor ft3 - The Son of 
God-Above all, let us always 
focus our attention upon Jesus 
Christ. With the abundance of 
visible magnetic personalities 
we have among us, there is a 
danger in losing sight of the 
invisible One who said, "1, if I j|^ 
be lifted up from the earth, <^P 
will draw all men to myself." 
in. 12:32{NASB). By anchor- 
ing upon these immovable 
objects, we can never faUI

Dulan Awarded Postdoctoral Fellowship 

Dr. Garland Dulan, asso- 
ciate professor of Sociology 
and Behavioral and Family 
Science, was one of three 
persons awarded a Post- 
doctoral Faculty Fellowship in 
1979. by The Institute for the 
Interdisciplinary Study of 
Education at the Northeastern 
University of Boston, Massa- 

In this Interdisciplinary 
Study program, Dr. Dulan was 
able to undertake a study of 
the effects on the educational 
attainments of blacks by their 
personal characteristics and 
differential backgrounds. 

The study was done to see if 
sociological factors had a great 
influence on a minority stu- 
dent's educational success, 
compared to that of a white 
student's sociological back- 
ground and educational 

are being experimented with. 
Dr. Dulan is investigating 
the problem of why certain 
things work for some students 
and not for others. His study 
also posed questions as to 
whether or not the tests, such 
as the ACT and the SAT could 
be used as fairly just measur- 
ing tools of a black student's 
ability to succeed in college. 

Dr. Dulan's presentation on " 

the results of his study was 
entitled. "The Effect of 
Values, Perceived Ability ai -^ 
Environmental Control on the 
College Attendance of 
Blacks." This was presented 
at the Northeastern University 
of Boston. He is currently 
working on another presen- 
tation entitled, "A Proposal 
for the Evaluation of Three 
Compensatory Programs for 
Freshmen at Northwestern 


Dr. Dulan hopes that his 
research and study will help 
answer his and many other 
educational institutions ques- 
tions regarding the education 
of blacks and other minority 
students. In the future, Dulan 
would like to see his research 
put to work and have the 
admissions procedures for 
those with a low G.P.A. 
entering college modified. 

McKee Library on SOLINET System 

Where the white students 
could be tested by the conven- 
tional methods, the black 
students could not be treated 
in the same manner. The 
variables that are traditionally 
used in educational attain- 
ments are being re-evaluated 
while new means of testing 

Melvin Hobbs 

McKee Library at SMC is on 
the Southeastern Library Net- 
work (SOLINET) system. This 
is an automated' library 

Some of the services this 
system provides are: auto- 
mated catalog, an interlibrary 
loan system which allows bor- 
rowing books from other 
libraries on the system, a 
serial subsystem which lists 
all other universities on the 
system journal holdings, and 
an aquisition sub system 
which will soon be available. 
This will cut down the delivery 

time of ordered books from 

two months to two weeks. 

The most important of the 
new systems will be the 
catalog on microfilm (COM) 
which will eliminate the need 
for card catalogs. 

A sample catalog of 20,000 
titles will be made available to 
SMC in October. After work- 
ing the bugs out, it may be 
made available for student ust 

Assistant librarian, Peggy 
Bennett, says that by next 
year it was hoped that all the 
titles could be made available, 
but that this does not look 
possible at this time. 

There are several advan- 
tages to this system. The first 
is that the entire card catalog 

will be reduced to a small pack 
of microfilm that can be 
duplicated for about two 
dollars. Viewers will be made 
available in the dorms and 
there will be several viewers 
located around the library. 
Each division will also have a

A Senior Praises SMC 

Smith Protests 

I, Robert M, Smith, have 
been a loyal, upstanding stu- 
dent of SMC for the past three 

I think that after the over- 
whelming sum of money that I 
have shoveled into this institu- 
tion, the least that they could 
do for me my senior year 
would be to put my picture in 
the Joker.* 

I understand that I have no 
on-campus hours, but, I am 
taking 35 hours in direct 
conjunciton with SMC. I will 
be graduating from Southern 
Missionary College with a 
B.S. in Medical Technology. 
The privilege of being in 
conjunction with SMC was 
NOT free. 

I went to the computer 

Center twice to have my 
picture taken. (This way 
they'd have a variety of mug 
shots to choose from.) Did any 
show up in the Joker? No! I 
would have even accepted my | 
photograph with false identifi- 
cation (as at least 18 others 

For all my friends, fans and 
etc.. that miss my face, I've 
included it in this letter. So, 
cut it out and paste it in the 
Joker on page 65 between 
Keith Smith and Steve Smith.

Dear Editor, 

The following "history" is 
respectfully submitted as a 
pep talk to those of my fellow 
students who wonder, "Am I 
going to survive college?". 

"Hello. Southern Mission- 
ary College? I'd like to talk 
to someone about going to 

So began my relationship 
with the friendhest college 
this transfer student has ever 
been associated with. 

I'd been out of school for a 
few years and faced my first 
semester with shaking knees 
{caused not only by nerves but 
the maneuvering of the "few 
stairs"placed ever so misera- 
bly about campus). The next 
two questions kept me awake 
nights. Do I remember how to 
study? What do I do if my 
mind goes blank on a test? 

The first semester's history 
was marked by the following: 
"Garv, I heard this is sup- 
posed to be an easy course. 
How come it is two weeks 
before finals and I think I'm 
going to blow it?.. .Elder Hol- 
brook, you mean our church 
has only been around about a 
hundred years? I thought it 
had been here forever!... Dr. 
Steen, what was that you said? 
Write a position paper? Do I 
have a position?.. .Mrs. Par-

"Don't forget James 1:5." I 
rushed home to discover what 
that could be! 

"If any of you lack wisdom, 
let him ask of God, that giveth 
to all men liberally, and 

upbraideth not, and it shall be 
given him." 

Hey, that's for ME! Thank 
you, Lord! 

Second semester brought 
better organization, more self 
confidence, and the resolve to 
make it! It had its disappoint- 
ments. God, why does the 
little boy I tutor have to be so 
sick?. ..Dr. Winters, what do 
you mean I have bronchial 
pneumonia? I don't have time 
for that!.. .Who is Desmond 
Ford and why is there so much 
controversy?. ..Dr. Zach, I find 
this Adventist Beliefs class 
confusing... ME, play a re- 
corder, guitar, ete.,etc. Are 
you serious. Dr. Robertson?... 
Dr. Ruf, I would certainly like 
to visit the places you have 
been! I fell in love with 
Thoreau through you.. .Hey, 
Mr. Garren, whatdid you ever 
do with those lesson plans we 
worked so hard on?. ..Dear Dr. 
Pearson, the book Education 
is now a cherished part of my 
hfe. Thank you, and thanks 
for keeping my vision in view.

possibilities of student 2009, 
as reported in the Accent. We 
have 1,123 women and 885

Just what is the nature of 
student 2009? I can think of 
many possibilities but all of 
them seem to raise further 
questions. What classes is 
this student enrolled in? 
Would we recognize it around 
campus? Does it have the 
necessary qualifications for 
any grants? When will it 
graduate? Can we arrange for 
an interview with it? 

I anxiously await the un

September 18, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

The College According to Art. 

To say that Steve Dickerhoff 
is a legend is putting it mildly. 
Week after week, he rocked 
the school and the students 
with his wit. sarcasm and 
sharp criticism. This is one 
author who would have kissed 
the ground Dickerhoff walked 
on if it weren't for the fact that 
someone might have seen me 
and thought 1 was stooping to 
kiss a frog. 

There was something that 
puzzled me about Steve, how- 
ever, and in the true style of 
Sherlock Holmes, I deter- 
mined to fit the pieces to- 
gether. 1 started with a person 
I knew would give me the 
story straight. 

Mrs. Dickerhoff sounded 
cheerful enough as she ans- 
wered .the phone in her 
middle-class suburbian At- 
lar.ta home. So, after the 

initial greetings I got right to 
the point. "Peggy," I tried to 
sound as casual as I could, 
"what is it about Steve and 
P.E. majors?" There was 
silence for a moment and then 
I heard her start to softly 

"Art." she finally said, "if 
it was anyone else 1 wouldn't 
tell, but I know you wouldn't 
bring this out in the open." I 
was glad she couldn't see me 
turning red. 

"When my boy was small." 
she continued after a moment, 
"he had his heart set on being 
a P.E. major." My head 
started to spin before she had 
even finished the sentence. I 
couldn't believe it. I grabbed 
frantically for my pad and 
pencil and started taking 
notes. She was still talking. 

"His father and I practically 
went bankrupt in our attempt 
to supply all his wants. 
Baseballs, basketballs, tennis 
rackets, football helmets, 
pingpong tables, the list was 
endless," she exclaimed. 
"He spent hours in front of 
the TV set watching all the 
sports he could find and 
getting very involved in every 
game. He also idolized his 
nursery school gymnastics 
coach." I tried to picture a 
minature Dickerhoff dribbling 
a basketball, throwing a long 
bomb while playing football, 
or smashing a home run 
during a game of baseball. 

"What happened?" I al- 
most yelled in my impatience. 

"Something just snapped." 
she replied. "Suddenly, 

Stevie was as uncoordinated 
as a pregnant hippopotamus. 

He was kicked off the little 
league team and dropped from 
his nursery school gymnastics 
team all in the same week. He 
wrote a scathing rebuke about 
his coaches and sent it to 
every newspaper within 500 
miles of Atlanta, but it did no 

So that was it! I contacted 
Steve's sister, Bev, as soon as 
I could for verification on the 
story. "That's right," she 
said, after 1 told her what I had 
heard. "Steve jogged and 
worked out with weights for 
two years after that in an 
attempt to make a comeback. 
It was too late. He was a 
broken man."

Functions of the Absence Committee Discussed 

The Absence Committee is 
set up to serve the faculty and 
student body of SMC. It 
performs several functions: 
First, the Absence Committee 
takes the burden off of the 
instructors for evaluating 
excuses for class absence, it 
also takes the burden off the 
student for locating a teacher 
in order to have the absence 

The Absence Committee is 
easily utilized by means of the 
excuse forms available at the 
Student Center Desk. These 
need only be completed and 
dropped into the box labeled 
for this purpose in the Student 
Center before noon on 

The Absence Committee 

operates according to specific excused or unexcused ab- 
guidelines in considering the sences. However, the guide- 
lines vary somewhat depend- 
ing on the situation, and 
would be slightly different for 
village students, etc.

Williams Named Retention Advisor 

Frank Roman 

Southern Missionary College 
has hired Terri Williams as a 
retention advisor, 

A retention advisor has the 
responsibility of keeping in 
school those students who are 
having academic problems, 
social difficulties, or homesick 

"I don't want to scare the 
students with my title," said 
Williams. "I've tried to 
change it. but this is the only 
title I can change it to." 

"I want the students to know 
that there is someone on 
campus who cares about their 

think that because they may 
have a valid complaint, this 
will bring them trouble." 

Dr. Ron Barrow had headed 
up a similar program, but 
because of his other projects, 
he was not able to devote his 
full capacity to the program. 

Williams has several years of 
experience. She has worked 


at the University of Washing- 
ton and Washington State 
University. There, she 
worked in the correspondence 
office, the admissions office, 
and other areas of the college 
administration. All these 
positions have helped her in 
dealing with students and 
their problems, and qualifies 
her for the position. 

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. 
Alexander Pope 



Some of the programs 
planned are mainly directed 
toward the freshmen students. 
She believes that they are the 
most susceptible to homesick- 
ness and are prone to leave 
college sooner. 

Students will be polled for 
their opinion concerning some 
of the rules of the campus. 
They will be free to express 
their complaints on certain 
inadequacies of the college.

ional fears like this, or pho- 
i they are called, plague many 
everyday. These phobias are 
)ng that a person with such a 
annot control his or her reao- 
even when they realize how 
al it is. 

bias often begin with a child- 
ixperience that was coupled 
lin. Perhaps the person who is 
ally afraid of dogs was bitten 
6 was young. Someone who is 
of water may have nearly 
sd at one time. Some of these 
ly even involve such harmless 
as telephones, clothes, or 
if these objects have been 
ted with a bad experience. 

hobia can also come from a 
ng experience, that is, a per- 
ly copy his parents' fears. For 
le, if a mother or father has a 
for flying, or close areas, or 

thunder, a child may learn this 
t)ehavior and share the same fears. 
But whatever the cause, avoidance 
behavior, or avoiding the feared 
object, only serves to reinforce the 

Phobias can reach a serious propor- 
tion when they interfere with a 
person's life. Some individuals 
experience so many phobias, or may 
have such an intense dread of people, 
leaving home, or seeing cars, that 
they cannot lead a normal lifestyle. 
These people are made prisoners by 
their own fears. 

People like this can be helped, and 
even simple phobias like fear of 
worms, or test-taking can be over- 

One theory is a psycho-analytic 
view in that the person gains insight 
to why there is an irrational fear and 
when it began. TTiis theory maintains 

that when an individual understands 
why he has a phobia, he can then 
t)egin to overcome if. 

Behavior modification is another 
successful way to fight a phobia. This 
theory involves desensitizing the 
person by gradually, in very small 
steps, exposing him to the cause of 
his phobia until he no longer fears it. 

In some instances, however, just 
the opposite may be done to help a 
phobia. For example, a person who 
has a phobia with test-taking, may 
overcome it by going to a testing 
center and taking many tests until it 
becomes second nature and no longer 
creates irrational anxiety. 

For that person who somewhere, 
right now, is encountering a neigh- 
borhood dog, that dog does not have 
to remain a threat forever. With 
understanding and help, that dog can

View from the Bleachers! 



The season is almost half 
over and the games are run- 
ning very smoothly. There 
have been a few matches 
where teams have had to 
forfeit because not enough 
players turned out. Boys, let's 
get on the stick and BE 

Eastern Division has broken 
up that big tie that was with us 
last week. Slattery has come 
out on top for the time being, 
but many say that will change. 
In the Western Division, 
Dubose and Kuhlman are both 
undefeated and tied for first 
place. Sooner or later, some- 
thing's got to change. West- 

ern Division has had some 
very close games with a lot of 
action. We really appreciate 
all you that came out to the 
games this week. I saw quite 
a few of you out there with the 
O.J., too. Isn't it great! 

Well, last Thursday, the 
Youth Leaders of the Southern 
Union challenged the students 
to some slow pitch. They all 
suited up in their red and 
white jerseys for the "big 
event." _ 

The fence had been moved 
out in left field, but that made 
no difference. The left fielder 
still got his fair share of 

fetching balls when the stu- 
dents were up. Finally, he got 
tired of going around the fence 
and tried going through it, but 
decided to shy away from that 
in future instances. We won't 
mention any final score. 
Students won. 


Kryger has taken a two game 
lead with no loses and looks 
strong. 1 think some of you 
guys need to come watch that 
team play you might be able to

When Melissa and Dana

surprise at being asked to 
write for the school newspaper 
at Southern Missionary Col- 
lege, a church -related institu- 
tion. As you could guess, 
demons holding my high posi- 
tion do not often have the 
privilege of writing for such an 
untainted audience. 
I was extremely disappointed 
when Melissa set the bounda- 
ries of my article by giving me 
the subject of a demon's 
greatest fear. I had been 
hoping for the opportunity of 
choosing my own subject. An 
essay on the intricate work- 
ings of the'underworid would 
most certainly have tingled 
the tender ears of you stu- 
dents. But alas, it was not to 
be. Anyway, Dr. Knittel 
would probably have censored 
the article before it reached 
the press. 

Though I have penned 
articles with greater length 
and much more detail than 
this, this article describing the 
greatest fear of a devil was 
one of the toughest I have ever 
written. In fact, I could not 
even think of anything to write 
about. You must understand, 
we devils just do not have the 
same fears you humans do. 

/ • 

Humans worry about the tem- 
poral necessities of life such as 
shelter and food. As for 
shelter. I have always had a 
place to stay. I don't really 
mind it even though the 
temperature remains quite 
high. Concerning food, we 
demons do not need the vast 
amounts of nourishment some 
of you mortals seem to re- 
quire. Many glasses of ice 
water will -luffice for us. 

I began to think I would have 
nothing to write about when a 
frightening tidbit of informa- 
tion came to me. I learned 
that the students at Southern 
Missionary College were hav- 
ing a Week of Spiritual Em- 
phasis. September 15-20. Now 
the Weeks of Prayer in them- 
selves do not bother me. They 
occur twice yearly at most 
Adventist institutions, and my 
associates and 1 have refined 
our techniques until we can 
use these weeks to our advan- 
tage in some cases. (I cannot 
tell you how!) 

However, there is something 
about this particular Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis that wor- 
ries me. Today 1 received in 
the mail tapes of the first two 

meetings. Upon listening to 
them, I was greatly alarmed. 
Instead of exhorting the stu- 
dents to watch their diet or 
telling them to concentrate on 
living a certain lifestyle, this 
Elder Hills is encouraging 
them to establish a relation- 
ship with Jesus Christ. That's 
exactly what we demons fear 
most, that the students of 
SMC will take time out from 
study, Softball, television, ten- 
nis, etc., and insert time in 
their schedule to study the 
Word of God (horrorsl) and 
pray, (even worse) If they do 
this, we have lost most of our 
avenues to tempt them. 

So what is our greatest 
phobia? It is Jesus-phobia, 
the fear that a Jesus revolu- 
tion will occur on this campus. 
For if it does, it could be 
contagious to other Adventist 
campuses. However, I am 
hoping that once again my 
fears will prove groundless 
and things will return to 
normal after the Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis.

Library Boasts Civil War Relics 

The McKee library has a 
Civil War Library located on 
the third floor. It is open to 
you, 8-12, Monday to Friday 
and 1-6 p.m.. Monday to 
Thursday. The library con- 
tains approximately 3.500 
books and bound periodicals 
on Abraham Lincoln, the pre- 
Civil War period, the Civil 
War, and the reconstruction. 
In addition, there are artifacts 
on the life of Lincoln, four 
presidential documents, se- 
lected letters, paintings and 
photographs of Lincoln, and 
paintings and maps of Civil 
War battles. One of the things 
that makes the collection so 
valuable is that so many of the 
books were written in the 
1860's or before. One of the 
books was published in 1788. 
All in all, there

from a lawyer. John W. Fling," 
Jr. of Wyoming. Illinois. A 
large part of the Civil War 
books were purchased from 
Dr. Russell Slater of LaSalle, 
Illinois. These, together with 

what Dr. Thomas himself col-

Childers to Display Work 

Malcolm Childers. assistant 
art professor at Southern Mis- 
sionary College, has been 
invited to display his con- 
temporary printmaking at the 
Florida School of Art in 
Palatfca, Florida, on November 

Childers was invited to dis- 
play his work by George Lorio, 
gallery director and an , 
associate of Childers in two 
Christian art groups. 

The groups are Christians in 
Visual Art. a national group 
and Vineyard Arts Fellowship, 
a regional one. 

The purpose of these two 
groups is to bring dedicated 
Christian artists together so 
that they may share ideas, 
educate one another, en- 
courage each other and pro- 

mote their philosophy. 

These Christian artists do 
not believe that they must 
always paint pictures of Christ 
or what most people would 
think a Christian painting. 
Their main purpose is to show 
others Christ, but they feel a 
person can be touched just as 
deeply by a beautiful or mean- 
ingful painting. 

The group's philosophy is to 
bring a renaissance to Christ- 
ian art. They would like to see 
art return to the way it was in 
the Middle Ages when reli- 
gion and art were closely 

Childers explained that art 
has been left out on the 
fringes of religion in the past 
150 years and that the two 
need to be brought back 
together. He feels that Chrifi

available for $5.50 a day. 

The Center is under the 
guidance of the Division of 
Education and Human Sci- 
ences. Siiger has her B.S. in

feel that if they can properly 
communicate through their art 
with that soul, they can show 
others Christ. 


Fall Fesdval Week 




Dave's Trivia 




Strayer Defends Voting 

As Greville once quoted, "Man is the only creature 
endowed with the power of laughter." And how true his 
statement is. Our ability to laugh and maintain a sense of 
humor is essential, not only now in a campus situation, but 
especially when we are turned loose in the world with our 
sheltered surroundings behind us. We must learn that 
there is a humorous side to life, and should keep this in 
mind always to help protect our sanity as well as have a 
healthy attitude. To get bogged down with detail and 
excessive knitpicking, is to miss out on one of the greatest 
joys of life which is laughter. 

In our day to day situations when pressure and worry 
can leave us feeling edgy or overreactive, taking the time 
to step back and realize that a cynical attitude probably 
won't help matters, will do much for our mental 
well-being. One might as well laugh as cry and complain. 
Ella Wheeler Wilcox aptly summed it up with, "Laugh 
and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone; 
for the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, but has trouble 
enough of its own."

Dear Editor: 

I am encouraged to see the 
S.A. and our student body 
participating in registering to 
vote November 4. In the 
elections of 1968 and 1972. 
there were those in College- 
dale adamantly opposed to 
students' voting because, as 
they feared, the student vote 
was largely a Democratic vote 
in the midst of a Republican 
district. I have been thrilled 
to see the S.A. become in- 
volved in helping in helping 
the student body exercise its 
franchise rights by setting up 
tables in the cafeteria lobby. 
Yet in the October 9 Accent, 
Larry Riddle demeans this 
right of voting as "Unhealth- 
ful" and quotes frequently 
from one Adventist pioneer to 
make it seem sinful to vote. I 
should like to flip the coin over 
and examine a few other 
statements by our pioneers in 
the light of their political 

In the Review for August 
12, 1862 (p.84), James White 
stated that Adventists who 
had voted in 1860 had "to a 
man" supported Abraham 
Lincoln, the Republican can- 
didate for president. While 
Mr. Riddle would likely have 
been scandalized with Abe's 
Sunday-keeping and theater 
attendance. Adventists then 
voted for Lincoln because he 
opposed slavery and wanted to

John Byington, our first Gen- 
eral Conference president in 
1863, kept a station on the 
Underground Railroad at his 
home in Buck's Bridge, N.Y., 
in clear violation of the Com- 
promise of 1850-though in 
distinct sympathy with Lin- 
coln's Republican views which 
caused him to frame the 
Emancipation Proclamation of 
1863 (Ibid., p. 315). 

Uriah Smith, Review editor 
for 50 years, frequently de-

Bureau, calling him "a rebel

The College According to Art! 


It is a well known fact that

the recent "line explosion" I 
decided that a little investi-

exploration 1 happened to 
stumble upon an office that I 
never dreamed existed. Cau- 
tiously peering in I noticed 
that it was quite large and 
very plushly furnished. On 
one wall hung several complex 
looking charts and diagrams. 
Across from these was a 
computer terminal. In front of 
me. and behind an executive 
style walnut desk, sat a 
fiftyish looking, partially bald 
man. Noticing my curious 
glance he invited me in and 
introduced himself as Dr. 
Alexander Slop. Chairman of 
the Division of Line Sciences. 
Recovering from my initial 
surprise I requested an inter- 
view to which he readily 

"I represent one of the 
largest, and perhaps most 
important, divisions on this 
campus," Slop began as he 
settled back into his soft chair. 
"We are intricately connected 
with all of the departments, 
without us they wouldn't 

be able to boast of their fine 
course offering." 

"Could you give me some 
examples?" I anxiously asked. 

"Certainly. Take Behavioral 
Sciences for a start. Upper 
division students doing re- 
search have a wide spectrum 
to choose from in the cafeteria 
line. They can siudy social 
interaction, varying degrees of 
temper, and, if the line is long 
enough, development from 
adolescence into adulthood. 
Then, there's the Religion 
department. Where can you 
find a better place to practice 
preaching than in a line." 

My interest was picking up 
as he continued. 

"Of course the math majors 
here can. for the first time, 
observe what happens to a 
limit as time goes to infinity. 
We also have an arrangement 
with the PE department so 
that students in conditioning 
class may receive credit for 
walking the several miles from 
the back to the front of a line 
each day." 

"And what about history 
majors?" I added excitedly. 
"Students who find them- 
selves in a long line are 
ancient history by the time 
they get to the front." 

"Exactly," Slop replied, a 
smile twitching at his lips. 

"There's one thing that 

bothers me though," I mused. 
"How do you get aline started 
in the first place?" 

"Ah," the good doctor 
sighed, "I thought you'd 
never ask. We hire student 
labor whom we refer to as line 
assistants. Cafeteria servers, 

: of < 

most important assets. They 
make piecetime working for 
us. For every student that they 
can delay at the serving deck 
for more than a minute they 
get 17 cents--23 cents if 

they're on work study." He 
paused and let the impact of 
his words sink in. 

"Other line assistants are 
hired to perform small, but 
important, tasks such as 
hiding the silverware and 
blocking the salad bar." 

At this point my stomach 
growled so loud that Slop must 
have thought the war had 
started. I excused myself on 
the grounds that I was hungry 
and my host was gracious 
enough to understand. 

"No problem," he said, an 
jvious gleam in his eye, "My 
en will be waiting for you!" 

I didn't quite understand 
these last words and pondered

me, however, when 1 met the

trip to Taco Bell and as I drove 
off I could have sworn that I

inirOSpCCtJ wisdom from Kings & Wiseman! 

This parable is prayerfully 
addressed to you, my fellow 
students. YOU ARE THE 
SAILOR. It is written in the 
context of the present conflicts 
that rage through our church 
over various teachings, espe- 
cially the questioning of Ellen 
White 's validity as a prophet. 
The following explanation of 
symbols should aid in under- 
standing in the fullest sense 
this parable's message to you. 

The young sailor is you. 
The old sea dog [sailor] repre- 
sents those who will, in the 
fiiture, choose to disavow the 
way God has led in the past. 

The Old Map is the Scriptures, 
and the updated Insert is the 
writings of Ellen WHite. She 
is the last generation 's great 
explorer. The Guide is none 
other than the One who. I 
pray. wUI bring these words 

The sun was just beginning 
the day as two figures made 
their way over the rickety old 
dock toward an ancient craft at 
the far end. In the gathering 
light the sea-battered letters 
of the ship's christening pro- 
claimed, "Quest for Truth." 

As the pair picked their way 


around the missing boards, 
one could easily distinguish 
the vitality of youth in one and 
the carefully measured steps 
of an old sea dog in the other. 
Each took hold of a rope and 
began freeing the vessel for 
their voyage. 'Now their 
conversation became even 
more earnest. 

Said the old sailor. "Of 
course I realize the magnitude 
of this trip. Don't forget that 
I've spent as much of my life 
as you are old searching these 
waters around here." 

"But you've actually made 
my point." replied the young 
sailor. "While it is true that 
you have been on the sea 
much more than most anyone, 
this trip is to take us no further 
than the waters 'around here'. 
This voyage is to the Land of 
Truth that we have known 
about from the beginning of 
our existence. Finding it is 
the only hope for our people

"Yes, yes, I know," replied 
the sea dog in an annoyed 

"Then please tell me why 
you insist upon leaving behind 
the Old Map from the first 
pioneer explorers, and the 
updated insert which the last 
generation's great explorer 
called, 'the lesser map derived 
from the greated," pleaded 
the younger man. He contin- 
ued, "Do you remember how. 
upon returning from her voy- 
age, she affirmed the accuracy 
of the Old Map? She told us 
about meeting the Guide on 
her trip and how He had led 
her around the multitude of 
hazards she found in the 
uncharted region beyond the 
Old Map. She didn't quite 
make it to the Land of Truth, 
but she did feel confident that 
the Guide would meet any 
future explorers as they used 

the Old Map and her updated 
Insert, and lead them through 
the remaining uncharted area 
to Truth. Why then should we 
leave without them?" 

The seasoned sailor paused 
appropriately, and then in a 
condescending tone he said, 
' 'If you will take but a moment 
to consider, you will remem- 
ber my repeated counsel. We 
must by thinkers and nou 
mere reflectors of some other 
explorer's thoughts. You 
yourself have proclaimed the 
importance of this voyage. 
What if the previous explorers 
have been wrong? Consider 
the lack of sea experience of 
this latest explorer especially. 
Her sailing education is no- 
thing compared with mine." 

It was a struggle that 
reached to the very depths of 
the young sailor's soul. But as 
he pondered once more the

Music Building Proves Unique 

Todd K. Parrish ^ -■■ 


The new music building, 
part of the future Fine Arts 
Complex, will be the first 
section completed sometime 
this summer. 

This beautiful new structure 
will have many features uni- 
que to any building in this 
area. It has been designed 
especially with the performing 
arts, particularly music, in 
mind. ' 'The idea is for it to be 
functional, yet beautiful." 
says Dr. Marvin Robertson, 
Music Division Chairman. 
"It's different than an average 
classroom building 
it's got to function ii 

This is what Klaus Nentwig. 
architect of the building, has 
provided for. All of the walls 
will be solid concrete, and the 
floors have a rubber mate set 
a few inches beneath the 
surface. This prevents sound 

transferring side-to-side, and 
up and down. 

Nentwig is also an artist and 
musician who was trained in 
Germany. This substantiates 
his interest in seeing the 
building be a functional 
creation for the arts. 

The projected $2.1 million 
project will be put into use 
next summer by the division, 
and the first classes will be 
held in it next Fall. 

The structure has three 
separate levels housing 23 
odd-shaped practice rooms. 
This will help to break up the 
sound sound and make it easier for 
students to concentrate. 

There is also a large or- 
chestra and band practice 
room directly behind the con- 
cert hall. The practice rooms 
for organs have two-story 
ceilings in order to hold more 
sound volume. These char- 

acteristics help to enhance the 
good acoustics throughout the 

"It has been designed with 
music in mind," reports 
Robertson. A constant hu- 
midity control is another uni- 
que feature, considering the 
storage and use of instru- 
ments the many rooms pro- 
vide for. 

The glass along the outside 
of the music building will be 
bronze in color, and the light- 
ing will stream all around the 
white columns and red brick. 
This adds to the esthetics, yet 
provides security to the area. 

"I am anxiously looking 
forward to the new addition to

Robertson, "Thankful to the 
administration for having the 
confidence in us to provide a 
building that is practical to our

involvement with Missions

Various bands have been 
^organized by students and are 
scheduled to leave Wright

You've no doubt heard of Murphy and his laws. These 
rules pertain to almost every facet of life. 
Weil, recently, I've come up with a few laws of my own 
that are geared to the more local surroundings of SMC. 
I think you'll find these particularly helpful in certain 
situations around campus. 

1. It will always rain unless you're carrying a bulky 
raincoat and umbrella. 

2. If you don't do your statistics homework, it'll be the 
time Dr. Richards asks for it. 

3. The weekend vou plan to go home is the weekend 
you're asked out by three different people. 

4. The day you decide to hang that picture up with 
cement nails is the day your Dean comes "visiting". 

5. If you loose your completed term paper, it's 
guaranteed that in three hours after you type a second 
copy, you'll have found the first one. 

6. The one answer you forgot on your history exam is 
remembered as you walk down the steps of Lynn Wood. 

7. The day you smile at that someone you've been eyeing 
is the day you have a broccoli leaf stuck between your 

8. The one time you count on someone doing you a favor 
is the time they don't come through and there you are 
stuck with trying to work around it. 

It's just the way things go. There's nothing you can do 
about it, short of retiring to the mountainous region of 
Outer Swaziland on a sabatical to study the changes of 
one's own mind. However, you can't do that because your 
parents want you to get a good education, so we're back to 
the beginning. ..You've no doubt heard...

Perhaps, if they were held once every two weeks instead of 
weekly, the service would be more meaningful."

Carmen Labate. religion. Bethlehem. PA: "I believe that

A study of the social intel-

theology majors during the 
1979-1980 by Gerald Colvin 
has been accepted for delivery 
at the annual Tennessee Psy- 
chological Association conven- 
tion to be held this year in 
Memphis on October 15-17. 

Colvin's three primary hy- 
potheses were all upheld by 
his investigafion: (a) social 
intelligence scores derived 
from J. P. Guilford's four 
factor tests would significantly 
contribute to the prediction of 
faculty ratings for theology 
majors at SMC; (b) creative 
problem solving indices would 
correlate significantly with 
rated potential for the mini- 
stry; (c) theology majors who 
were sons of ministers would 
receive significantly higher 
faculty ratings than those 
whose fathers were not

theology majors involved their

church already split apart by 
the divorce and remartiage of 
four of its primary leaders. In 
the 10 minutes alloted for this 
exercise the 91 majors gene- 
rated over 600 solutions, only 
41 of which were actually 
separate and discrete. 

Colvin states that his was a 
criterion referenced study, 
since performance on several

identified as a concurrent

Why Do I Feel So L( 



Tricia Smith 

Dan sat on the brick wall outside the 
Student Center. Boy, he wished he 
had someone to talk to. He looked 
first, down toward the library, then 
Lynn Wood Hall. Nobody. Wait! 
Here comes some people out of the 
Student's Center! They looked like 
they were having fun. Dan sat up 
straighter and followed their path out 
of the corner of his eye. They walked 
right past him. Dan heaved a sigh of 
disappointment and swung his feet 
back and forth. 

Loneliness is something we all face 
in coming to college but for some, it is 
much more of a real problem. It can 
make us feel lost and unloved. 
Therefore, we hate school, teachers, 
students, and at times, even our 
own selves. 

Loneliness can be considered in 
three different categories: 

1. Real 

2. Percieved 

3. Identity 

Real loneliness is without company. 
Totally alone. 


In perceived, we may be around 
others but don't fit in with the 
system. This can be caused from a 
number of things. Our old relation- 
ships may be terminated or disrup- 
ted. This includes leaving our family 
at home, loss of old school friends, 
and others that we have felt close and 
comfortable with. Once these famil- 

iar support systems are taken away 
and we are left to manage ourselves, 
the feelings of loss can Ijecome 
greater and greater. 

These are our sources of need (fam- 
ily, friends, etc.) that supply us with 
our love, caring, and understanding, 
and our feeling of belonging. 
Without them, we may truly feel like 
just another face and numljer. 

This can be considered a sort of 
nostalgia loneliness where we long for 
familiar surroundings. These feel- 
ings of insecurity can stem from being 
placed in a new environment, facing 
new challenges, and feeling threat- 
ened to inadequacy in our own 
feelings of worth, which leads into 
"Identity" lineliness. 

Identity is a type of loneliness that 
leaves us struggling with the crisis of 
"Who am I," "What is my role" and

the wrong approach . It takes del i ber-

build your relationships. 

Reading therapy is another source 
to consider. Along with the atxjve 
books may help you discover the 
topics of your needs. John Powells 
"Why Am I Afraid To Tell You Who I 
Am?" and Jesse Laird's "I Ain't 
Much Baby, But I'm All I've Got" are 
selections to consider. 

There are also things that you can 
start right now. Consider going to the 

ball games and asking someone to go 
with you. When you get there, sit 
with people you know and make an 
honest effort to associate. Getting 
into intramurals is another good 


move. You become involved with 
others in different acitivities and 
therefore get to know them better.

will be several teams repre- 
senting the dorm floors, facul- 
ty, R.A.'s and the village 
students. If you have any 
questions contact Dean Qual- 
ley, or however you spell it. 

In the women's league. 
Kryger took her first loss, but 
still holds onto first, with 
Kiture. Shephard and Morris. 



The qualification round has 
been played and Coach Jaecks 
is pleased with how everyone 
reported in promptly. Re- 
member when you play a 
match the winner is responsi- 
ble to call the P.E. office and 

reported by Friday noon the 
29th. The rest of the tourna- 
ment is single elimination, 
that means one bad day and 
you're gone. So get a good 
night's sleep and eat your 
Wheaties that morning. 



Last Sunday was the Talge 
Hall Golf Tournament. It was 
played at Nob North Country 
Club near Cohutta. All to- 
gether there were 12 teams. 
The Conference office sent a 
team up and the Collegedale 
Church had a team. 

The tournament was a best 
ball tournament-where you 
choose the best shot of the 
four on your team and play 
from there after each shot. 
This relieves some of the 
pressure and gets everyone 
supporting one another. The 
teams were all fairly even with 
seven of the 1 2 coming up with 
4-5 under par. 

Matt Nafie's team, (Dick 
Byrd. Billy Knecht, Don Le- 
mon) came up with 10 under 

This tournament went so well 
that another has been planned 
for April 5. Watch for details.

September 25, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

[Introspect: wisdom from Kings & Wiseman; 

Lonely voices, crying in the residence halls. 

The lonely voice of a spiritual child. 

Lonely faces look upon another sunrise. 

Burdened by the worries of the day. 

Laden most by their own thoughts 

Of what seems to be a foolish role to try to play. 

Lonely eyes that speak of endless wondering. 

Searching for that spiritual Comforter who was here last 

in. God was noticeably pres- 
ent last week. The emotion 
was sweet, and the victory was 
intense. Yet, God cannot 
allow this to last forever. The 
time comes when He must 
withdraw from our conscious- 
ness to provide for the con- 
tinuing exercise of our choice 
of Him, hence, the truth. Look 
and see. Wasn't this the 
experience of the greatest 
people of scripture? In fact, it 

seems that those closest to 
Him experienced the longest 
and deepest troughs (espe- 
cially consider Jesus). 

But, again, is that all? Must 
we just accept the two facts: 
(1) we live in cycles; and, (2) 
God wants to use the troughs 
in a special way? No, I believe 
that there is an additional 
element in which provides a 
glimmer of light in the dark- 

ness of apparent solitude. 
Consider that it is an^uTainate 

step in a person's relationship 
with God when the feeling is 
gone, but still intending to do 
His will, he looks around 
himself, finds that every trace 
of Him seems to have va- 
nished, yet continues to 
search for Him in prayer and 
scripture. This is the key to 
spiritual growth, the way to 
the end of the tunnel.

presses the story of your life 
this week-the week after the 
Week of Prayer. Things have 
been pretty rough this week, 
haven't they? It's about the

On the other hand, you say the

things can't stay this nice? 

Without question, your 
fears are ligitimate, for in a

lives constantly move between 
peaks and troughs, (a Week of

of every aspect of our lives-- 
our interest in our studies, our 
affection for our friends, our 
desires for diversion, all go up

but a natural phenomenon. 
But is that all? 

By no means. In addition, 
we can be certain that the two 
forces in the universe operte

and troughs. Now here's the 
big surprise, in God's efforts 
to get permanent possession 
of your soul. He relies on the 
troughs even more than on the 
peaks (remember Romans 
5:1-6). This is the greatest 
fact of our existence! God 
wants all to be His by one 
way--their own choice.

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/October 2,1980 



I must say I'm impressed. It has been a long time since 
an Adventist educator has made such a bold and dramatic 
move as our own Dr. Knittel has recently done. In fact, it 
was in 1897 at Battle Creek College that E. A. Sutherland 
plowed up the play field, thus ending such foolishness, 
and planted crops. 

The present administration at SMC has again moved 
forward in a modem, innovative program of plowing up 
the mall of the campus. It was a stroke of genius, to say 
the least. Few would have predicted the results. Great 
flocks of exotic birds find the hewly planted seed most 
delightful- re suit, the ornithology field trip to Florida has 
been cancelled. The mud and dirt on the clothes (and 
tracked through the buildings, the result is, more students 
are working at the cleaners and the service department. 
Couples are no longer lollygagging on the lawn of the 
mall-the resi' standards are being maintained. 

Lastly, the new crop of okra should provide food for all 
the result is lower cafeteria prices. (Those who find it 
difficult to swallow fried okra, the cafeteria promises to 
serve it boiledl) Should there be another drought in 
Collegedale, the rocks could be harvested-the result is a 
new pet rock industry. This editorial salutes the new 
educational reform at SMC.

Literature Evangelist Reports 

Dear Fellow Students: 

With the school year well on 
its way, we have already had 
the opportunity to get involved 
in the many extra-curricular 
activities, clubs, etc., and 
along with all the other clubs, 
the Literature Evangelists 
club has had its first meeting, 
and we were shown the movie, 
"The Fire and the Sword." 
The club officers were also 
voted and are as follows: 
Dave Prest, president; Lonnie 
Kerbs, vice-president; Dar- 
lene Hallock, secretary; and 
Mary Lou Bunker, public rela- 
tions secretary. 

The officers of the clubs 
have met twice now and are 
looking forward with great 
enthusiasm for a fantastic, 
fun-filled year. We are mak- 
ing plans for a weekend 
campout, vesper programs, 
and much more. 

So many times when a 

person hears the words litera- 
ture evangelist, he is turned 
off. Maybe it's because he 
feels threatened or maybe he 
doesn't like the idea of seUing 
books. This year, our club's 
goal is to reveal the many 
worlds of the colporteur. 
Won't you come and find out 
what they are from the experi- 
ences of others on October 14? 
"There is a great work to be 
done, and every effort pos-

Athelete Irritated by P. E. Secretary 

Southern Missionary College am 
excsptlon of vacation and exam \ 

To our fellow student athletes- 
The other day I, along with 
two friends of mine, made our 
way to the racquetball courts 
for a game of cut-throat. In a 
matter of minutes we were 
totally absorbed in our game 
and lost all account of passing 
time. Suddenly, a violent, 
turbulent woman descended 
with rage upon us and accused 
us of a trifling, petty sin. We 
had been so absorbed in our 
game that we had played a few 
miijutes overtime. No one else 
was there to play in our court, 
and no one in their right mind 
would be constantly stopping 

a racquetball game to look at 
the clock on the opposite wall 
of the gymnasium just to see 
what time it was. It is the 
usual policy at all clubs and 
most public racquetball courts 
for the manager or, in this 
case the secretary, to either 
blink the lights when time is 
up, notify the players in a kind 
manner, or allow the players 
to continue to play until the 
next group of players arrive 
and knock on the door upon 
which the present game is 
immediately terminated. 

The manner in which we 

were confronted caused me 
reflect upon the words 
Washington Irving's "Rip Van i 
Winkle" which ask: 
what courage can withstand | 
the ever-enduring and all- 
besetting terrors of a woman's 
tongue? ' ' The afore men- 
tioned then proceeded to as- 
sail us with a violent reproach I 
acting in a manner similar [ 
that of a quack. After all, if w 
had committed a hateful o 
odious act, I could understand | 
her actions, but it was si 
trivial matter. If she had jusi | 
asked us to leave, or told us 
the time, we would have lefi 
immediately. But, she rep- 
roached in such a manner thai 
we acted rather flippant to- 
wards her which led to the 
vehement conversation which | 
I will not disclose because 1 d' 
not feel it is important 
However, I do feel it i 
important that some type/ 
policy be made concerning 
this problem and if ^^^^^ 
already is a policy, it shouldbe 

posted so that all players kno^ 
what is expected of them. A 
simple solution to the prol^'^lj 
has already been mentioned iB 
my letter. For p'ayers to "j 
constantly running outside i | 
check the clock seems some 
what foolish. Just a simp[ |

The College According to Artf 

"Some men learn that a 
horse has hind legs only after 
they're kicked by one." 

This is the tragic story of a 
Chattanoogan bachelor who 
lost his true love in a slimy pile 
of grease. I have recorded the 
facts as they were told to me, 
but the names have been 
changed to protect the inno- 

"You look smashing 
Mary , ' ' Mark's praise was 
well deserved and Mary 
blushed at his words. 

"You don't look so bad 
yourself," she replied sweet- 
ly. It was true. Mark had 
been preparing a long time for 
this day and now he was a 
striking sight in his new three 
piece pinstripe purchased es- 
pecially for the occasion. 
Even more important, how- 
ever, was the costly ring 
hidden safely in his coat 
pocket. This was to be the 

most important evening of 
Mark's life and his heart beat 
like an express train. 

"Where to tonight?" Mary 
ventured as they pulled out of 
her driveway in his Trans Am. 
Mark allowed a smile to flicker 
across his face. 

"Remember Jim, my friend 
that goes to SMC?" She 
nodded. "Well, he told me 
about this romantic little rest- 
aurant in Collegedale called 
the CK." 

"CK? ' 

"That's right," Mark 
reached across and took her 
hand. "I think it stanks for 
Cozy Korner." 

Time sped by for the happy 
couple and in less than twenty 
minutes, Mark was politely 
holding the CK door open for

said, casting a nervous glance 
around the room.

reassured her, "I made reser- 
vations two weeks ago." 

They stood a couple minutes 
waiting for someone to seat 

"Why is everyone wearing 
jeans and T- shirts?" Mary 
asked in obvious disappoint- 

"I think I read in the papers 
there was supposed to be a 
professional baseball team 

eating here tonight," Mark 
lied after observing gloves and 
cleats scattered around the 

After fifteen more minutes 
of standing without anybody 
coming to seat them Mark 
spied a couple of empty seats 
and suggested that they sit 

"Thirty-two!" some guy 
nearby shouted. 

"Thirty-three!" a girl in a 
blue and white pants suit 
chimed in. 

"Why are they shouting 
numbers?" Mary wanted to 
know. Mark thought a mo- 

"I heard once that in some 
expensive restaurants they 
shout how much they are 
paying for a meal and the 
customers try to outdo one 
another" he said. 

"Can you beat $33?" she 

"I'll top the highest bid for 
you darling," he tried to 
appear nonchalant but secret- 
ly hoped the bidding wouldn't 
go too high. 

Fifteen more minutes went 


"Waiter," Mark motioned 
to a guy in a yellow shirt that 
proclaimed 'Collegedale is for 


"Waiter, no one has served 
us yet. Could we haVe a 
menu?" The guy looked 
bewildered but pointed to the 
wall. Mark's face fell. 

"What's a Lomino?" 
Mary's questions kept com- 

"It must be French." 
Mark's courage was fast 
failing him but he still attem- 
pted to appear undaunted. 

"I think I'll try your exotic 
La Lamino, " he told the waiter 
who was busy talking to a 
blond in white shorts. 

"I'll have a Sam's Chicken 
Sandwich," Mary fmally de- 
cided, "I use to have a uncle 
named Sam. The waiter 
yelled the order to the girl in 
the blue and white pant suit 
and then looked at Mark , 

"Could I see your ID card?" 

"Certainly," Mark pulled 
out his driver's license. 

"Will this do?" 

"Eighty-twol" someone

"A HOLY WAR" {U.S. News 
& W.R., Sept. 15. '80. p. 24) 


While it is the least of our 
desires to induce premature 
judgments and spawn dogma- 
tic eschatological constructs, 
we, as religious editors, are 
alarmed at the unawareness of 
our peers as to the final events 
which are rapidly taking place 
on ail sides. Our own Dr. 
Norman Galley, who devotes 
much of his time and energy to 
keeping up with the current 
fulfillments of prophecy, says 
that, "everything is happen- 
ing so fast." He adds, "The 
final events scene changes 
daily." If this writing can only 
act as an awakening alarm 
clock in the morning, it will 
have definately achieved its 

Last year was a big one for 
pornography. In one year 
alone, such displays as sex 
with children and animals 
earned four-billion dollars in 
the market place. (Moral Ma- 
jority Report, July 30. '80, p. 
13). A month ago Newsweek 
stated. "Nearly half of the 
nation's fifteen to nineteen 
year old girls have had pre- 
marital sex, and the age of 
initiation keeps dropping." 
{Newsweek. Sept. 1. '80. p. 3)

1979, there was a little more 
than 4100 allowed murders 
every day by Americans (you

Friends, I want you to know 
that my head has really been 
left spinning as I have pursued 
the research for this and other 
projects on this subject. But 
when I turned to a rather 
unimposing black book which 
I've had on my shelf for 
many years, 1 discovered that 
it's been there all the time. I 
simply wasn't able to conceive 
of something like this happen- 
ing. Consider her words. 
"Let the principle once be 
established in the U.S. that 
the church may employ or 
control the power of the state; 
that religious observances 
may be enforced by secular 
laws;in short, that the authori- 
ty of church and state is to 
dominate the conscience, and 
the triumph of Rome in this 
country is assured." (Great 
Controversy, p. 581) 

I would encourage, indeed 
ask you, to read the entire 
chapter in Great Controversy 
entitled, "The Impending 
Conflict." There she draws an 
astonishingly accurate picture 
of precisely what has occurred 
in our world. First, she 
portrays the rapid and com- 

plete decline in morals. She 
depicts the rising promiscuity, 
the increasing political cor- 
ruption, and both the heart- 
lessness and the homosexual- 
ity of mankind. She warns of 
the abounding erratic beha- 
vior of nature. Cold when it 
shouldn't be. Terrifying 
storms. Droughts multi- 

And then she comes right 
out and states that a move- 
ment will arise to stop the 
rising tide of immorality! (GC, 
p. 587) But, there is a special 
twist to the proposal of this 
morality movement. "Yet this 
very class put forth the claim 
that the fast-spreading corrup- 
tion is largely attributable to 
the desecration of the so- 
calied'Christian sabbath,' and 
that the enforcement of Sun- 
day observance would greatly 
improve the morals of society. 
This claim is especially urged 
in America, where the doc- 
trine of the true Sabbath has 
been most widely preached." 
(GC, p. 587) Moreover, she 
reveals that, "the assertion 
that God's judgments are 
visited upon men for their 
violation of the Sunday-sa- 
bbath, will be repeated; al- 
ready it is beginning to be 

urged (emphasis mine). And 
a movement to enforce Sunday 
observance is fast gaining 
ground." (GC 579-80) 

And now 1 ask you to 
compare this: (from Dr. 
Gulley's These Times article) 
"I wrote to Rev. H. Edward 
Rowe, Executive Director of 
the Religious Roundtable, 
which convened the National 
Affairs Briefing that met in 
Dallas. I asked him, 'If it is 
time for the Moral Majority to 
let their influence be felt in 
government, could this also 
include influencing legislation 
to make Sunday a day of 
worship in our country?' His 
reply: 'Legislation and procla- 
mations by Presidents to urgg 
(underlining Rowe's) it- yes." 
(please note the underiined 
"urge" in GC above) 

Dr. Gulley continues, "Bill 
Gothard's- seminar for mini- 
sters, held in Washington, 
D.C., this spring (1980) found 
Gothard giving forceful ba- 
cking to the idea of urging 
(underlining mine) Sunday sa- 
credness and acceptance of 
America as a Christian nation. 
My ministerial friends in 
attendance told me of the 
fervent reception the mini- 
sters gave these concepts." 


My friends, to ail of this I 
simply plead, awakel Please 
consider all of the indications 
that point to the end as being 
now. The moral majority is a 
fact. Its ultimate designs are 
surfacing. The current theo- 
logical attacks on the church 
and God's prophet are facts. 
Combine this with the outright 
statement that, "The very last 
deception of Satan will be to 
make of none effect the test- 
imony of the Spirit of God." (1 
Selected Messages, p. 48.] 
This statement occurs several 
places and the context without 
questin clarifies that, this 
means an attack upon, (1) 
God's Word, and (2) the 
writings of Ellen White. 

Again, I've done no more 
than set forth the facts. But I 
am compelled to proclaim, 
awaken dear friends! Are you 
in the Ark? Please come in. 
There's room for all of us even

The weather lately has tak- 
en out one full week of games. 
At present there is no sche- 
dule to make up these "rain

Ned Velasco's team has 
been hit the hardest by the 
weather. He had had four or 
five games rained out, and 
this has hurt his standings. 
He still has not played Knight

changed much except for Jan- 
sen moving up two places in 

the standings to tie with Beitz 
for fourth place. The Dorm 
Tournament has been 
changed in a couple of ways. 
It is a single elimination 
tournament instead of a dou- 
ble elimination, and will be 
played Sunday and Monday, 
October 5 and 6. not Wed-

CAEL Sponsors Health Week 

Carol Fawcett 

The Collegiate Adventist for 
Better Living (CABL) Division 
of the Campus Ministries at 
SMC will be sponsoring a 
program of spiritual and phy- 
sical health from the week of 
Oct. 12-17. The challenge of 
CABL week is to proclaim the 
principles of temperance to 
the student body and also to 
the community. God calls 
upon the young and the old to 

have 100 percent coverage. 

Dr. Don Weaver from the 
Health Care Center in Gentry, 
Arkansas will be the speaker 
for Wednesday evening, 
Thursday chapel and the Fri- 
day evening vesper service. 
He is a very inspirational 
leader promoting a positive 
lifestyle through a better 
understanding of the health 
principles. Some topics he will

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/Oclober 9, 1980 



Ah, midsemester. That beloved time of tests, 
discouragement, and general despair. Summer is a dim 
memory and vacation but a dim hope. Is there, in fact, 
rest for the weary? , 

Yes Definitely, firmly, and positively yes. After carenil 
calculations and much calendar counting, I have come up 
with some statistics that may, once again, give meaning 
"back to life. 

From today, Oct. 9, Thanksgiving vacation is a mere 49 
days away. That means a measly 20 MWF classes and a 
scant 14 TTH classes, and even better, only 12 chapels. 
The number of studious Sundays is seven, which also 
applies to Sabbaths and Saturday nights. There are, and 
here's a sad note, a sparse six Southern Accents to 
anticipate, and only two traffic courts on the agenda. Last 
and certainly least, there is one, 1 repeat, one, lonely, 
insignificant fire drill. 

See, that's not so bad. We're almost there! And now, 
armed with these words of encouragement, I bid you 
all-happy hanging on! rriaC<i,

Take-over Coming From All Directions 

To Whom it May Concern 

Careful research into The 
Southern Accent staff has 
resulted in facts concerning 
family ties which are appalling 
and frightening. It appears we 
are on the verge of a Smith/ 
Gilbert family take over of the 
entire school. This research 
shows it to be immanent.

Accent staff moved into the 
Sabbath School area-once the 
spirit world is dominated, then 
alas, all is gone. Rather than

It has been said that it is our 
red-blooded, patriotic Ameri- 
can duty to vote in the 
presidential election, as well 
as on temperance issues. 
However, Inspiration says, 
"Be ye not equally yoked 
together with unbelievers." (2 
Cor. 6:14) 

"We cannot with safety 
vote for political parties; for 
we do not know whom we are 
voting for. We cannot with 
safety take part in any political 

' 'The first day of the week is 
not a day to be reverenced. It 
is a spurious sabbath, and the 
members of the Lord's family 
cannot participate with men 
who exalt this day, and violate 
the law of God by trampling 
upon His Sabbath. The people 
of God are not to vote to place 
such men in office; for when 
they do this, they are partak- 
ers with them of the sins 
which they commit while in 
office."(G.W. p. 391-3) 

What are we to do then? 
Let political questions alone. 

All three presidential cand- 
idates exalt Sunday worship 
and violate the Law of God. 

The end of all things is at 
hand. This could be the last 
presidential election before 
Jesus comes, if so. the next 
president would enforce a 

Sunday law. 

One contender for the office 
is backed by a strong evangel- 
ical group of churches. They 
claim that they have enough 
votes to put him in office, 
AND to pass any law which 
they wish to. Of course, the 
Sunday law is one of them. 
Your vote for him will be a 
sure vote for the Sunday law, 
thus, you become a partaker 
not only of his sins, but the 
displeasure of God. The other 
candidates are just as danger- 
ous to our spiritual health, for 
they are also violators of God's 

Inspiration further says. 
"We are not as a people to 
become mixed up with polit- 
ical questions. All would do 
well to take heed to the Word 
of God. "Be ye not unequally 
yoked together with unbeliev- 
ers."(Matt. 28:19) (2 Selected 

Messages 336,7) 

"Let the dead bury the 
dead. "(Matt. 8:22). Let the 
Sunday-keepers fight for who | 
they want to rule over them, 
and let us stick to preaching | 
the gospel. 

It is "He (God) changeth | 
the times and seasons: 
removeth kings, and setteth 
up kings. "(Dan. 2:21). Ves, 
leave the political situation m 
God's hand. All that He 
expects of us is to follow the 
great commission - "Go an 
teach all nations"(Matt.28:l'?) | 
warning them that the king^ 
dom of God is at hand, and 
that Jesus' coming is of more 
importance to our etern | 
health than a political party.

The College According to Ai 

October 9. 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

As I sat daydreaming in 
class the other day, something 
that the teacher made a 
comment on jerked my atten- 
tion back to reality and gave 
me sweaty palms. 

"There are some students 
in college," he said in low and 
emphatic tones, "who can't 
even read beyond the third 
grade level." 

His statement seemed to 
have very little effect on most 
of the students in the class. 
Some were sleeping too 
soundly to even hear. Others 
heard, but just shrugged 
their shoulders in reply. For 
me, however, it was different. 
The professor's words haun- 
ted me for the remainder of 
the day and that night gave 

me a nightmare I will never 

I dreamt that I was entering 
the lobby in Talge Hall where 
The Southern Accent had just 
been handed out. Students 
were scattered around in little 
groups reading and discussing 
what had been read. 

Suddenly I spied a large 
group of students huddled in a 
corner by themselves. Their 
countenances told me that 
something was wrong, so I 
sauntered over and inquired 
as to the nature of their 

"Sir," one lad told me as 
tears streamed down his 
cheeks, "we can't read this." 
He pointed to an article in the 
paper and as I gazed in the

Scuba Diving Club 
David Fedusenko 

A club for Scuba Divers, 
sponsored by CABL Mini- 
stries, will hold its first meet- 
tig Thursday, Oct 9, at 5 p.m. 
in the Cube Room of the 
Student Center. 

The club is being formed 
due to a lack of diving acti- 
vities in the Chattanooga area. 
According to the club director, 
David Fedusenko, "Many 
times after a diver has fin- 
ished his basic training 
course, the gerson drops out 
of diving due to the lack of 

diving opportunities. The club 
will aid in diving trips to local, 
state, and regional areas* ' ' 
Fedusenko is a college 
graduate of the National 
Association of Scuba Diving 
Schools college in San Diego, 

Some of the club lectures 
will involve topics on diving 
safety, maintainence, and care 
of diving equipment. A diving 
directory with lists of fellow 
student divers and diving 
'■jcations will also be offered.

There was another week of 
bad weather that cancelled all 
but a couple of games. One 
game in particular was a real 
upset, it was in the Western 
Division. Kuhlman, who 
started off the season very 
strong and is presently tied for 
second place, met Parra who 
has been in last place most of 
eason. Kuhlman took off 
with a six to two lead, but 
Parra came back with two 

Nothing happened until the 
bottom of the sixth inning with 
Parra scoring six more runs to 
make it a score of 10 to 6. 
Khulman's team got their bats 
for the top of the seventh. It 
seemed like they would pull 
through when they made three 
runs and the tying runner on 
third, but Parra fmished that 
inning quickly to win the game 
10 to 9. Coach Jaecks was very 
happy with the attitude that 
was shown in the game. There 
was a spirit of having a good 
time and that is what the game 
is all about. 

The single-elimination dorm 
tournament started off well 
Monday night. Here is a brief 

summary of the way it ended 
up and the scores. 

Second floor was really psy- 
ched for the game with Leo- 
nard, Price, and Spears hitting 
seven home runs during the 
three games. They blew away 
the RA's and the faculty, and 
started off with three runs in 
the first inning of the cham- 
pionship game with first floor. 
First floor began with two 
runs, but were not able to 
keep it going. In the books, it 
looks as though first floor 
should have come through 
with 11 hits versus no hits and 
a couple of errors versus eight 
errors by second. There were 
a couple of questionable calls 
by the umpires, but they did a 
good job and kept the game 
well under control. 


This Monday the 13th at 
noon is the last day to have 
your results reported to the 
PE department for the second 
round of play. There have 
been a few problems with the 
weather, but work around 
them as much as possible. 


On Monday, October 13, are 
also the first games of the 
football season and will be 
played RAIN or SHINE. The 
only thing that will slop the 
games will be lightening or 
very soggy turf. So plan on 
playing no matter what the 
weather is like. Your captains 
should be getting in contact 
with you. Let's all be suppor- 
tive of this sport and make it a

announced what the prize 
would be and those preparing ' 
to run were astonished. He 
promised eternal life to all 
who would finish the race. 

The hour finally arrived. A 
large army of runners massed 
at the starting line, anticipat- 
ing the official's gun. As the 
sharp report of the pistol 
crackled through the air, a 
of humanity surged for- 

ward and the marathon was 

But as the Promoter looked 
down at the starting line, a 
mask of disappointment 
clouded his face. For lingering 
there was a small group of 
joggers, acting as if the race 
had not begun. 

"We weren't ready for the 
starter's gun," the would-be- 
runners whined. "Further- 
more, you didn't tell us when 
the race would start." 

' 'I told you to be ready at all 
times for in such an hour as ye 
think not..." The Promoter's 
voice was drowned out by an 
incessant chorus of bitter 

"We don't need your race. 
We will run elsewhere! ' ' 
They flung the angry words 
back at the Promoter as they 
headed for their cars. 

"There is no other race," 
the Promoter said, biit His 
voice was not heard. Tears 
moistened His eyes as the 
foolish joggers departed, 
never to run again. 

The Promoter climbed into 

His car and motored to the 
halfway point of the race. Soon 
the leading runners would be 
in sight. Realizing how thirsty 
they would be. He placed 
some of His ' ' living water' ' on 
a long table. As they came into 
view, the Promoter began 
waving His arms and shouting 
loudly, "Living water, living 
waterl ' ' 

The fastest runners paid no 
attention to the yelling Pro- 
moter. They continued sp6ed- 
down the road, as if they had 
heard nothing. He continued 
to shout. 

Finally, someone noticed 
Him. ' 'I can't afford your 
living water," the racer said 
as he continued running. "My 
living water is free," the 
Promoter replied. The runner 
did not hear. He was far down 
the road. 

Soon someone else spied 
the waving arms. "I'm not 
thirsty," he declared. "If I 
need water, I'll get it else- 
where." "There is no other 

fountain," the Promoter said, 
but the wind caught His words 
and they went unnoticed. 
Salty tears fell unashamedly to 
the pavement for the Promoter 
knew dehydration would soon 
force these runners out of the 
race. The Promoter remained 
at His table as group after 
group of self-sufficient run- 
ners trotted by. Finally, just as 
He was beginning to think no 
one would stop, a tired group 
of runners plodded over to the 

"Do you have any water?" 
they eagerly asked. The 
Promoter replied excitedly, 
"Drink as much as you can. It 
is the only way to finish the 

As the racers quickly dra- 
ined glass after glass of the 
refreshing fluid, these words 
echoed in their minds, 
"Whosoever will, let him take 
the water of life freely. Who- 
soever drinketh of the water 
that I shall give him shall 
never thirst." (Revelation 
22:17, John 4:14)

Southern Missionary College 

October 23. 1980 

SMC to Receive Alumni Fund 

Deborah Bagger 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege stands to receive 
$582,500 within the next five 
years due to the Business 
Executives' Challenge to 
Alumni Fund, reports SMC's 
President, Dr. Frank Knittel. 

The BECA Fund is offering 
SMC $211,000 if the partici- 


increases from its present 6 
percent to 21 percent in the 
next five years. This incentive 
could generate between 
$300,000 and $371,000 of new 
gifts, according to 
, present schedules. 

During the fiscal year end- 
ing June 30, 1980, 322 alumni 
contributed $25,760. This is 
approximately 6 percent of the 
t 5,328 alumni. 

If, by June 30. 1981, this 

; figure has risen to $57,000, 

and at least 643 alumni parti- 

:ipate. the BECA Fund will 

i award SMC a $63,000 grant. 

Said Alumni Association 

-sidcnt. John Durchek, 

"When the national average 

of alumni participation in 
annual funds stands at 23 
percent, how can SMC alumni 
be content with a 6 percent 

BECA will award a dollar 
for each alumni dollar rece- 
ived beyond last years total of 
$25,760 up to $57,000. That's 
a maximum of $31,500. If only 
$50,000 is contributed the 
fund will pay proportionately 

BECA will also award $98 
for each new donor up to 321. 
Again, if there are less than 
321 donors, the fund will pay 
proportionately less. These 
two amounts will constitute 
the BECA grant. 

The alumni gifts must be 
within S5 and $2,500 in order 
to qualify for BECA matching 

This program will also gene- 
rate revenue from corpora- 
tions and foundations. 

President Knittel commen- 
ted: "The Alumni Challenge 
Fund is one of the most 

innovative and exciting pro- 
grams to ever come about 
the financing of Seventh day 
Adventist Christian higher 
education. Why didn't we do it 
sooner for our students? 

"SMC is going to invest 
that $582,000, it would not 
otherwise have received

Among our constant concerns 
are student aid. opportunities 
to help our teachers enrich 
their abilities, the library the \ 
operating budget and some 
capital expenditures. I am 
confident that SMC will be the 
better because of this unique 
and at the same time mean- 
ingful challenge to our alumni. 

"Although we appreciate all 
contributions, the unrestricted 
gifts are the most valuable and 
useful. We trust that our 
alumni will find in the SMC

Religion Department Begins Field Seminar Program 

Ron Watkins 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege's Field Seminar Program, 
in process for the current 
academic year, began October 
4 and will last through April 

1981. Each year the Division 
of Religion sponsors its senior 
ministerial students in con- 
ducting worship services at 
Seventh-day Adventist 




This year, 23 student mini- 
sters receive opportunity to 
conduct worship and some- 
times Sabbath school services 
once a month at 20 cooper- 
ating churches. 

The Field Seminar Program' 
provides responsible labora- 
tory experience for the stu- 
dents in their dynamic ap- 
plication of concepts learned 
in class. The program is 
mutually beneficial to the 
students and to the various 
church congregations who ap- 
preciate the diversion. 

Though the'program is in 
limited operation during the 
summer, churches are contac- 
ted by the Division of Religion 

to arrange for their coopera- 
tion through the fall and 
spring semesters. 

This year 20 churches are 
participating in the surroun- 
ding region within a radius of 
110 miles including the states 
of Tennessee, Georgia, and 
South Carolina. 

Although seniors are given 
priority, juniors may partici- 
pate when there is an oppor- 
tunity. The students are paid 
an expense allowance of 12 
cents per mile driven. 

The students are assigned 
to a different church every 
month. They may choose their 
own sermon topics, however, 
the church pastors may ask 
that certain sensitive issues 

not be elaborated. 

Occasionally, the students 
are expected to coordinate 
special music and Sabbath 
school, thus experiencing all 
the Sabbath exercises of the 
church pastor. 

In the past years tne stu- 
dents were required to turn in 
a cassette tape recording of 
one of their sermons along 
with an outline for the purpose 
of professional examination 
and suggestions. This requi- 
rement was eliminated this 
year, but plans are being 
discussed to require this as- 
signment again next year. The

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/October 23. 1980 



Are you going to participate or not? After all, what have 
vou got to lose but a good time? 

' Fall Festival Week is fast approaching and I want to see 
our campus throw aside daily attire and break away from 
all their appropriate dress. 

REMEMBER: Participation is the name of the game. 
American Heritage defraes it as "to take part; jom or 
share with others." That means everyone, tall & short 
old & young, shy & even you bold ones. After all, with 
Thanksgiving far in the future and no relief m sight, what 
more could you ask for than a week to be out ot the 
ordinary, laugh, compare, and really strut your stuff? 

Artangements have been made to allow these different 
types of dress into the cafeteria, chapel, ect. 

What makes a week like this fun is when everyone throws 
avyay feelings of self-consciousness and dives into each 
day with zeal. After all, what is the good of it if only a few 
participate and show willingness to take part in the 
function with others, and the "others" are standing on the 
sides, feeling left out and maybe a bit guilty for 
demonstrating lack of interest. 

There is another aspect we still have to cover and that is 
our beloved faculty. After all, they have had more years to 
collect all these "darling & daring" articles and can help 
with the show. 1 know some of them have had exciting 
experiences and have saved those certain articles for 
"nostalgia" purposes. So drag it out, hang it up to air, 
and join in the fun. 

Are you going to participate? You bet you are cause you 
want more fun weeks to be developed to break the 
monotony of campus life. So after all, what have you got 
to lose but a good time.?

Another Look at Christians Voti 

Dear Editor: 

Quite a few students were 
glad to see the article up- 
holding the standards of ins- 
piration concerning the com- 
ine presidential election. I'm 
sorty that Brother Strayer and 
I do not see eye to eye on this 
important subject. 

First, let me echo the words 
of James White in Review and 
Herald, Aug. 12, 1862 (p. 84) 
of which Brian Strayer quoted 
only three words-"We are at 
the present enjoying the pro- 
tection of our civil and reli- 
gious rights by the best gover- 
nment under heaven," but -----

always be so. ate seeking the righteousness

the vine. They will act in 
harmony, in Christian fellow- 
ship. They will not wear 
political badges, but the 
badge of Christ. 

"What are we to do, then? 
-- Let political questions alone. 
'Be ye not unequally yoked 
together with unbelievers: for 
what fellowship hath right- 
eousness with unrighteous- 
ness?'. ..The word fellowship 
means participation, partner- 
ship. God employs the strong- 
est figures to show that there 
should be no union between 

election, as well as on temp- 
erance issues." 

The only issue which inspi- 
ration forbids Seventh-day 
Adventists their voting privi- 
leges is in the political 

presidential politics, the fol- 
lowing testimony is given. 

"Whatever the opinions you 
may entertain in regard to 
casting your vote in political 
questions you are not to pro-

plete paragraph was a direct 
quote from the Servant of the 
Lord. Selected Messages book

The College According to Am 

The semester has reached 
the halfway point and has 
come to the place where you. 
if you're an average student, 
feel as though you are in a rut 
as big as Howard Cosell's 
mouth. For this reason I have 
decided to share some ex- 
cerpts from my latest book, 
102 Ways To Cure the Mid- 
Semester Blues. The book was 
originally written for those 
ambitious, yet disenchanted, 
freshmen who thought study- 
ing was the only form of 
entertainment during those 
formidable college years. 
Many others; however, have 
found that the book has added 
a new dimension to their lives 
and has given them that false 
sense of security which one so 
desperately needs in these 
perilous times.

Times Gone By 


The following is a compilation of rules and standards 
upheld by Southern Missionary College from its verv 
beginning in 1918 up until more recent days. 

carefully guarded by the faculty. 

The good ol' days come back to life. Old friends relive 
fond memories of past times they have shared. Long walks 
along the college campus create nostalgic feelings and 
moods. Worn paths where many students often traveled 
are now modern buildings. The faces are younger, the 
scenery is different. But the memories of college life past 
still lingers and stays young through their lives. 

The changes have been many since they've last been 
here. The campus has expanded, the faculty and 
administration have grown. Yet, the biggest change this 
school has experienced is the change in the regulations on 

There are so many times that it is impossible for some of 
us to be in school before curfew. 10:30 p.m. is just too 
inconvenient to be in. Consider this schedule from 1918, it 
may assist in regulating your time.

For those of us who just don't have the time to work, the 
very idea of being required to work would not set well with 
us. "Southern Training School Board approved a plan that 
all students living in the college be required to work at 
least 12 hours a week on manual labor. They are paid 
according to its value and carefulness in performance."' 

Guess what's missing In this picture? 

These days, everything is over-priced. Inflation has 
taken quite a bite from our pockets. Whatever happened 
to the days when a gallon of milk cost 76 cents and a loaf of 
bread 15 cents? What happened to the old days when a 
gallon of gas was only 52 cents? And how about tuition 
expenses here at SMC?

Dorm Rent 









Now, those of us who enjoy the luxury of our own rooms 
would have difficulty with this rule: "Parents are 
requested to send no edibles to students in the school,.." 

This bill was paid every 4 weeks, with 9 periods to 
year. Each semester was about 4'/) months long.

It is a well-known fact that here at SMC. dating is no 
problem. The overwhelming amount of couples would 
astound the students of back then, when they had rules 
like these to follow: 

1) Association between the sexes fiirther than ordinary 
civility and friendly relations will not be permitted. 

2) Gentlemen will not be allowed to escort ladies to ( 
from public gatherings or on the street. 

3) Students must refrain f-om all kinds of flirtations.

In order to build school status, it has been the 
philosophy of SMC that this school develops a person's 
character. It was also expressed that "the location of this 
institution tends to moral elevation rather than depravity. 
Drunkeness is rarely seen on our streets." 

These were just a few of the rules that were to be 
followed by attending students. Below are j'jst a few more. 

1) Students will not be allowed to receive or make calls 
on the Sabbath, except it to be to or from members of 
the faculty. 

2) Borrowing is a bad practice and is to be discontinued. 

3) Loud and boisterous talking or laughing in the 
buildings or about the premises are always out of place 
and such habits should be discontinued. 

The Men's Realdence Home back In 1916 

4) Permission for ordinary leaves of absence from the 
campus is to be obtained from the dean of men or the 
dean of women. (This meant that whenever the student 
left the campus for any reason he needed permission 
from the dean.) 

5) All unmarried students not residing with their 
parents or legal guardians are not allowed, except by 
permission of the president, to maintain and operate a 
motor vehicle. 

This school has existed a long time. It has endured 
everything from the World Wars, to the Stock Market 
Crash, and the following Depression. Old rules have been 
laid to rest, while new ones are born with every uprising in 
the seldom quiet dorms. 

SMC holds a small history of so many peoples' lives. 
This coming weekend. Alumni Homecoming, look for 
these people. Watch how closely they hold the memories 
of SMC to their hearts, notice how fondly they speak of the 
"great times" they've had. 

Then remind yourself that what you'i 
ome day be a memory like theirs.

Introspect: wisdom from Kings & W 


"We have a special guest at 

today." the raspy voice of Dr. 
Knittel stated. "He simply 
calls himself 'Master.' He 
would like to present a cash 
award of $50,000 to three of 
our top graduates. In five 
years, he plans to contact 
them and see how they have 
used the money." 

At this announcement, an 
aura of silence covered the 
gymnasium. The seniors were 
amazed at the large amount of 
money being awarded. Each 
one secretly hoped that he 
would be the lucky one chos- 
en. They were breathless with 
anticipation as the Master 
stepped to the microphone. 

"John Monroe." 

The audience applauded po- 
litely as John's name was 
announced and he strode to 
the platform to collect his 

John's business acumen 
and 4.0 grade-point average 
were well-known throughout 
the school. Truly he was one 
of the finest products ever 
produced by the business 
department. The smile on his 
face as he retook his seat 
revealed that he already had 
plans for his money. 

The Master called out the 
second name. Charles John- 
son walked to the front to 
pockethis check. It came as no 
surprise to the students to see 

Charles receive this award. 
Being one of the school's top 
theology majors, his prospects 
for a successful future were 
enviable. His fellow students 
were sure that Chuck would 
invest the money wisely. 

Herb Harris rose as the 
Master announced the final 
name. The seniors gasped in 
su^)rise as Herb humbly ac- 
cepted his check. No one had 
expected Herb to receive the 
award. In fact, hardly anyone 
even knew who Herb was. 

One year, two. three, five 
years rolled by. At the end of 
this period of time the Master 
returned, eager to see what 
his protege's had done with 
their money. 

John Monroe had encoun- 
tered no trouble. From the 
day of graduation he had 
invested wisely, and was now 
the owner of a large depart- 
ment store. 

As the Master entered 
John's posh office, he was 
greeted by a smiling secre- 

"May I h;lp you?" she 
asked politelj . 

"Yes," the Master replied. 
"I would like to see Mr. 

"He's a very busy man," 
the secretary stated. "I doubt 
if he has time right now." 

To this the Master replied, 
"Just tell him his Master is 


The secretary pressed a 
button and spoke into the 
office intercom, "Mr. Mon- 
roe, there's someone here to 
see you. He claims to be your 

There was a moment of 
strained silence. An impatient 
voice crackled back over the 
intercom. "I'm sorry, I don't 
have any Master." 

The Master turned and 
slowly walked away. 

Hoping to receive a better 
reception., he next went to the 
home of Qiarles Johnson. 

Elder Johnson had used his 

money to obtain his doctor's 
degree and was now pastor of 
a large church. As the Master 
walked up the sidewalk to his 
house, the front door opened 
and out burst Pastor Johnson. 
"Master, good to see you 
again," he said. "Say, I have 
to run now. We'll have to talk 
sometime," and with that he 
was off in a new Oldsmobile. 
The Master shed a tear or two 
as he retraced his steps over 
the sidewalk. 

Herb Harris had used a 
large part of his money to help 
a brother and sister through 

academy. With the remaining 
portion he had built a humble 
cottage at the edge of a 
country village. 

As the Master advanced 
toward this small abode, he 
wondered as to what kind of 
reception he would meet with. 
Would he be unappreciated as 
at the other places? His pace 
quickened as he saw the 
cheery glow of a fire through 
the window. Finally, he stood 
before the front door and tears 
of joy began to fall. For a sign 
above the doorway read, 
"Welcome Masterl" 

Exc-Aerobic Class 
Benefits SMC Women 

Ginni Lingerfelt 

An Exc-Aerobic class, un- 
der the direction of Kelly 
Wygal, a senior health science 
major, has beep started for the 
women of SMC. The class 
meets on Tuesday and Thurs- 
day evenings from 8 to 9 p.m. 
for faculty women, and from 9 
to 10 p.m. for students in the 
PE Center. 

The objective of the class is 
to get the participants in

the drudgery. Exc-Aerobics 
deals mainly in cardio- 
vascular exercises. These exe- 
rcises are the type which are 

most effective in reducing 
excess body fat and protecting 
against coronery heart 

Wygal has worked up a 40 
minute non-stop routine that 
is choreographed to music. 
This routine works from neck 
to toes and back up again, 
with variations introduced 
throughout the semester. Next 
semester an entirely new rou- 
tine will be made. 

The class size is limited to 
20 for the faculty and 35 for 
students. The cost is $10 for 
the entire year.

The Southern * Accent 


Volume 36. Number 9 

Southern Missionary College 

October 30, 1980 

Heppenstall to Lecture at SMC 

The distinguished Adventist 
theologian Edward Heppen- 
stall will be the first lecturer in 
the new "Perspective" series 
being launched by the SMC 
Division of Religion this 
weekend. Heppenstall will. 
lecture in a number of religion 
classes on Friday, (Oct. 31) 
and will speak three times on 
Sabbath-Nov. 1 (8:10 a.m., 
11:20 a.m., and 2:30 p.m.) in 
Talge Chapel. The Sabbath 
lectures will be taped. 

Heppenstall (79) is well- 
known throughout the world 
as the leading systematic 
theologian of Adventism and 
has served as cognate or major 
professor for seven of the 
nine professors presently 
teaching in the SMC Division 
of Religion. He was born in 
England, where he converted 
to Adventism in his early 
twenties, attended Stan- 
borough College, and later 
came to America where he 
graduated from Emmanuel 
Missionary College. His gra- 
duate work was done at the 
University of Michigan (M.A. 
1934), and the University of 
Southern California (Ph.D., 
1951). He also holds an 
honorary Doctor of Divinity 
from Andrews University. 

Heppenstall has a long and 

impressive record as a pastor, 
college and seminary profes- 
sor, writer, speaker, and 
thought leader. He is the 
author of four books including 
the significant theological 
works--Our High Priest, 
Salvation Unlimited, and The 
Man Who is God. all of which 
are used as textbooks on this 
campus. He has also written 
extensively for such journals 
as Ministry, Signs of the 
Times, and These Times. 

The ever-controversial 
Adventist doctrine of the 
Sanctuary has been thrust into 
the forefront of current atten- 



tionalism surrounding the 
Adventist Forum presentation 
last October of Australian 
theologian Desmond Ford, 
who Heppenstall has called 
' 'one of my most brilliant 
students." But it was Hep- 
penstall who called Ford's 
attention to serious difficulties 
in the historical Adventist 
presentation of the doctrine. 
While Ford has become 
popularly known as the pre- 
dominant agitator of the ques- 
tion. Heppenstall. his 
seminary professor, has con- 
tinually pled for theological 
and biblical responsibility in 
Adventism regarding this ?nd 

other doctrines. 

"Probably no one in the 
Adventist church today is 
more qualified." said Edwin 
Zackrison. SMC Associate 
Professor of Religion, "to 
speak on the subject of the 
sanctuary from a theological 
perspective than Dr. Hep- 
penstall." He taught the sub- 
ject for the ten years he was 
chairman of the Department of 
Christian Philosophy and The- 
ology at the SDA Theological 
Seminary, and the twenty 
years he was the professor of 
Theology at La Sierra College 
and Loma Linda University. 
He has authored a book on the 
subject as well as several 
apologetic articles which 
appeared in the years when 
the church was defending 
itself against the Barnhouse- 
Martin probes (1950s) and the 
Brinsmead agitation (1960s). 
He served on the historic 
Daniel ?on:mittr-e cf the 
General Conference, the 
Biblical Research Institute, 
and various sub-committees 
studying the sanctuary ques- 
tions. He has lectured on the 
subject all over the world. 

Heppenstall is not without 
his critics, Zackrison con- 
tinued. A prominent professor 
at Andrews University has 
said publically of his 
influence, "no one will ever be 

able to estimate the damage 
Ted Heppenstall has done to 
the Adventist Church." 
"However," concluded Zack- 
rison. "many of Dr. Heppen- 
stall's students will counter 
that his greatest "damage' is 
perhaps the fact that he insists 
his students become thinkers 
rather than mere parrots of 
dogma; and has a result, he 
has always posed a threat to 
the uncritical mind in general 
and the propoganda of the 
institution in particular." For 
Heppenstall Adventism is 
rooted in the scriptures and 
the quest for a biblically 

consistent and sound faith is 
never-ending and worth all 

"Perspective" is a part of 
the new face of the Division of 
Religion is attempting to pre- 
sent to the public. The Divi- 
sion feels keenly the need to 
be more aggressive in keeping 
the college and Collegedale 
community aware of the latest 
theological developments in 
the Adventist church with a 
view to their experiential imp- 
lications. At least three pre- 
sentations are planned for the 
1980-81 school year.

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/October 30, 1980 

f In many elections, there are assertions that the time 
now for a change in American's political leadership. 

Never before in the history of our country has a 
president had to defend such a record of inconsistence anS 
declining defense program. 

President Jimmy Carter has created some of the worst 
conditions our country has suffered since the Depression 
of the 1930s, with a monetary policy with 18 percent 
inflation, a 16 percent interest rates and over eight million 
Americans unemployed. 

If now is not the time, America may never have tne 
chance to change the liberal policies of F.D.R. and the 
New Deal which have been reinforced over the past 40 

But Washington's policies are the product of our elected 
officials, which in turn, are the product of our votes. 

If you want elected officials and a president coramited to 
effective anti-inflationary efforts, a balanced budget, 
increased productivity, and the elimination of unnecessary 
government regulation, then we must vote accordingly. 

Ronald Reagan offers hope. Hope that Americans can 
put its people back to work, control inflation and restore 
our nation's defense. His proven record in California is a 
prime example. 

The strong support of Congressmen like Dr. Glen Byers 
to a Reagan Administration can only help change 
America's future.' And locally. Bill Bennett is College- 
dale's man for proper representation on the County 

A change is needed from the courthouse to the White 
House, Do your part, and vote-Reagan. Byers, and

Nerd Day Questioned 

Dear Editor: 

By what sort of process have 
we associated a "nerd" with 
pocket calculators? (In earlier 
times we associated "nerd- 
ness" with squares, and in 
still earlier times with long 
hair (I) music.) I have met 
people who disliked pocket 
calculators (technology) and 
squares (quantitative think- 
ing) and classical music 
(formal modes of expression) 
and who were untidy, 
uncouth, and insensitive to 
others. I have met people who 
were immersed in technology, 
quantitative thinking and/or 
formal modes of expression 
and who were impeccably 
neat, courteous, and deeply 
understanding of others. In 
these often-made associa- 
tions, lacking in statistical 
support, I see a desire to 
deprecate the rational in favor 
of the romantic or even irra- 
tional, to put down the res- 
ponsible in favor of the groovy 
or even irresponsible, to bad- 
mouth part of what is the 
image of God in favor of much 
less. The way for this was 
prepared decades ago when a 
division between the logical, 
conceptual part of our minds 
and the emotional, intuitive 
part was suggested-or was it 
centuries ago? As one who 
experiences intense emotional 
responses (positive ones) to 
abstract mathematical des- 

criptions of nature or classical thinking 

orchestrations, and whose 

work (research and teaching) 

depends partly on flashes of 

intuition I urge that we try to 

avoid thinking that disciplined Ray Hefferlin

;The College 

October 30, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

According to Art Jordan 

With the presidential elec- 
tion just about upon us I have 
been hearing some doubts 
expressed as to the capabili- 
ties of this year's candidates. 
Some feel that re-electing 
Jimmy Carter might be taken 
as an endorsement for a new 
fuel called "peanutrol" to be 




energy crisis. Others feel that 
a vote for Ronald Reagan is a 
vote to move Talge Hall to the 
middle east. Here the men's 
dormitory would serve as an 
army base for the male SMC 



fighting in Iran. Then there 
are those who feel that John 
Anderson, if elected, would 
raise the price of gas and thus 
put the horse and buggy back 
on the interstates. 

All of these views are 
probably correct. I have, 
therefore, in an effort to 
provide some reasonable 
alternatives, compiled a list of 
possible nominees. These. I 
feel, are the people that we 
should be choosing between; 

Richard Nixon. Many feel 
that his involvement in the 
Watergate coverup make him 
unfit to be a president. I don't 
know why they make such a 
big deal out of this minor 
break in. So what if the 
burglars hadn't been caught? 
If Washington is anything like 
Collegedale the only thing the 
President could have heard 
over the Democrat's bugged 
phones would have been 
"tick, tick, tick, tick...". 

Kermit the Frog. A definite 
possibility. This young star 
has demonstrated amazing 
leadership potential. The pos- 
sibility of having Miss Piggy 
as our First Lady would be 
sure to draw millions of votes. 
If this does become a reality 
we could then be admonished 
to "go kiss a president." 

E. O. Grundset. If this 
celebrity could be convinced to 
renegotiate his 40 year con- 
tract for teaching FB, he could 
pave the way for a new era in 
American history. He has the 

Introspect: con 

where other personal and 
social reforms are needed he 
will preserve the status quo? 

Voting is an activity tor 
adults--people who are 
mature and intelligent on the 
issues. I cannot be held res- 
ponsible if the candidate for 
whom I vote breaks his pro- 
mise or changes his policies 
once he is in office. That is not 
what I voted for. I voted for 
Nixon the true not Nixon the 
fraud. I am responsible for 
being informed on a candi- 

type of drive it takes to 
stimulate the economy and 
would probably be found 
staying up late at night 
studying the deflated Amer- 
ican dollar with a microscope. 

Melissa Smith and Dana 
West. Certianly a team to 
consider. Probably the great- 
est duo since Bonnie and 
Clyde. They have promised, if 
elected, to put a Southern 
Accent in every American's 
hands. Their nomination 
would be the best thing that 
happened since Carter choked 
on peanut butter. 

Muhammed Ali. The time is 
right for America to start 
showing some muscle. Why 
should Ali stand in the 
unemployment line when this 
country needs a strong leader. 
If any foreign dictator dared 
threaten this country the for- 
mer champ would have some 
words for him. "We're the 
greatest. If you lay a finger on 
this pretty little country, I'll 
knock you into the second 
Thursday of next week." 

Bo Derrick. In this age of 
equal rights why not a pre- 
sident who can make the 
centerfold of "Playboy"? Just 

between Bo and Brezhnev 
during the SALT talks. "Okay, 
Leonoid, Russia will cease 
building nuclear weapons but 
will allow the U.S. to continue 
production." "Sure Bo, any- 
thing you say." "In addition. 
Russia will destroy all existing 
weapons." "Fine, sweet- 
heart, now how about coming 
over to my place for a cup of 
hot vodka?" "Not until you 
sign this treaty, Leo." 

Art Jordan. Definitely the 
best of any of the choices. A 
guaranteed success. College- 
dale's native son (that's bound 
to get him a couple dozen 
votes). He can't smile like 
Carter, but his dentist is 
working on it. The choice is 

date's record and campaign 

Since all Seventh-day 
Adventists have the God- 
given, nationally-endorsed 
right to vote or not to vote I 
will state my intentions: T^ere 
are no strange interpretations 
of Ellen G. White that will 
keep me from voting on 
November 4. I will not vote 
indiscriminately for a party 
ticket, but I will vote to the 
best of my understanding and

What would bie your position in 
dealing with the Soviet Union? 

Sanctions against the Soviets for their actions are essential 
to show that the United States can inflict pain or have 
cooperative relations. 

What is your position on homosexu-

{Anderson is a co-sponsor ofH.R. 2074, a bill to amend the 
Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include homosexuals.] 

Do you think limiting federal spend-

Introspect: wisdom from Kings & Wiseman! 

October 30, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

The Seventh-day Adventist 
position on the ethics of voting 
in a political election is very 
simple: Each church member 
is to make up his own mind. 

Anyone who insists on any 
other stance is just out of 
touch with Adventist tradition 
and runs the serious risk of 
projecting unwarranted guilt 
on his brothers and sisters in 
the church due to his own 
private opinions on the sub- 
ject. Nonetheless, every four 
years the issue arises again 
and the sides line up around 
those who see no issue, and 
those who would control the 
lives of other Christians in 
every area from dress length 
to the drinking of Dr. Pepper. 

Adventists have never taken 
a categorical stand for or 
against voting in a political 
election, nor has Ellen White, 
the chief source for formu- 
lators of Adventist tradition. 

Briefly put. her position 
was: 1. that the intelligent 
Christian will not vote indis- 
criminately or unintelligently; 
2. that no pastor has the right 
to make of his pulpit a political 
soapbox because in so doing 
he would be taking unfair 
advantage of the people who 
have come to hear the gospel 

preached; and 3. that those 
who vote (or do not vote) must 
share some responsibility for 
the decisions made bv those 
whom they have helped put in 
office. There is no substantial 
evidence that voting per se 
was ever an issue for her. 

What Ellen White wrote on 
the subject of voting and 
politics is so sensible and 
self-evident that it hardly 
requires special inspiration to 
arrive at her conclusions. Un- 
fortunately, some Adventists 
seem to need a statement or a 
quotation from her to mark 
almost every move of any 
given day as though God 
somehow never intended the 
brain to function in any other 
capacity than as the channel 
through which supernatural 
forces flowed. As a result, 
cohesive and issue-oriented 
thinking is often quite thin. 

The mind was given to 
Christians to make respon- 
sible and reasonable deci- 
sions. Sensible thinking is not 
to be sacrificed at conversion. 
Rather. Christians should 
exhibit and employ all the 
facets of the mind: memory 
judgment, perception and 
reasoning. And there are

areas of action in the Christian 
life which must be decided by 
one using the mind that is 
being conformed to and trans- 
formed by the mind of Christ. 

In the light of this philosop- 
hical consideration should a 
Christian vote? Some Chris- 
tians have the fantasy that 
they do not live in the worid. 
But it is no thanks to those 
kind of Christians that we 
have any freedoms here at all. 
To refuse to vote does not 
solve the problem for in that 
refusal is the casting of a vote. 
If one who votes becomes 
responsible for the decisions 
of the one for whom he voted, 
then the one who refuses to 
vote becomes responsible for 
the actions and decisions of 
everyone who got into office. 
For that reason, the argument 
against voting can result in a 
most serious shirking of 
Christian responsibility. 

Let's admit it-Adventists 
have their quirks too. Some 
Adventists have grown up 
under the assumption that no 
democrat could make a good 
president, or that all Catholics 
are evil. Such assumptions 
need to be challenged. Do we 
only judge people by their 
party or religious affiliation? 
Or should we not have learned 
by now thai a person's cha- 
racter is important? To vote 
categorically for the Repub- 
lican party or only for Protes- 
tants seems dangerous to me, 

Some of those who fall in our 
"acceptable categories" pose 
a greater threat to personal 
freedom than some atheists. 

Adventists have historically 
encouraged their members to 
vote for such issues as reli- 
gious liberty and temperance 
reforms. Yet overly conscien- 
tious brothers and sisters act 
as though this means a loyal 
Adventist will only vote for 
reforms which concern Adven- 

tists. I think such a stance is 
unintelligent, parochial, and 
even selfish. Why should we 
wish for a president who 
refuses to impose Sunday 
legislation while at the same 
time showing no concern whe- 
ther he stands for the equal 
rights of women or minorities? 
Why are we so concerned 
about keeping in office people 
who will share our unique 
perspective while in areas

pared for trends of theoretical 
interest, and used for predic-

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/November 6, 1980 

As I lie huddled under three thermal blankets and 
quilt with cold water streaming down my neclt and back 
-^ from my not entirely rinsed hair, I got to thinking about all 
' the things I usually do with electricity at 7 a.m. 

1.1 usually turn on the lights; they help me see. Lights 
also help me coordinate my outfit. 

2. Sometimes, I use hot water for showers; it helps me 
get the cream rinse out of my hair. 

3. OccassionalUy, I pause to look at my GE electric 
clock/radio; it lets me know if I'm on schedule or not. 

4. Once in a while, when something is obstructing my 
view of the clock, I'll hesitate for a second and listen to the 
sweet tinkline of the chimes wafting over the. foggy 
morning air; at least I know that because of the time 
change it's only an hour off. 

5. When I feel up to it, I'll heat some water for a cup of 
Instant Swiss Miss with minimarshmellows to give me 
some quick energy for lit. class. 

6. Once in a blue moon, I'll turn on the radio and listen 
to all my friends on WSMC expounding on the news, 
weather, and time; it makes me happy. 

7. If I feel like being presentable, I'll whip 
in make-up mirror and slap some make-up 
other people happy. 

However, Wednesday, as 1 lie shivering i 
cool room with nothing to do and nowhere to go 1 thought 
about all the things 1 usually do without electricity at 7. 

1. Lie in bed under three thermal blankets and a quilt 
with cold water streaming down my neck and back firom 
my not entirely rinsed hair.

"Cliques" Attacked 


Dear Editor: 

I am writing this letter after 
frantically finishing the first 
run of the Computer Dating 
program. About 259 students 
were involved, although 4 
were lost because they did not 
put down their ID number, 
and another 7 put it down 
incorrectly. There were 15S 
girls and 101 men involved 
(come 00 guys, let's hustlel), 
of which only 25 did not get 
anyone. This is due either to 
incorrectly filling out the form, 
or missing a question, or just 
being plain too picky. 

I have been asked when the 
next run will be. I am tenta- 
tively setting a target date of 
November 3-7 for the next 
run, so that the programs on 
November 15,22, and 23 are 
covered. After that, the spon- 
sorship of the program by the 
Math Sciences Division will 
end. If any organization 
wishes to sponsor a run, just 
come to me with a list of 
questions about three weeks 
ahead of time. The main cost 
is printing up the forms (about 
$17 per 500 forms), and I will 
run and distribute the results 
without charge.

puter took 4800 CPU seconds

The College According to Art Jordan! 

First it was "Dear Abby", 
then it was "Dear Ann", and 
now it's "Dear Art." In view 
of my recent barrage of fan 
mail. I have decided to take 
the time to answer a small 
percentage of the questions 1 
received, and publish them 
here for the benefit of my 
readers. The answers I give 
will, I sincerely hope, en- 
hghten those students who 
persist in asking about the 

Dear Art: 

I'm confused. The other day 
I was thrown out of the 
cafeteria on the seat of my 
jeans. This does not bother 
me. What does bother me, 
however, is that when I came 
to supper in my school attire 
evervone else was in jeans! 

Dear Greatly Perplexed: 

The answer is simple. It is 
obvious that there is a fine line 
between the times when jeans 
are "immodest" and ' 'per- 
fectly proper." This time is, 
by international agreement, 
at 5:00 p.m. 

1 recommend that you carry 
your jeans with you at all 
times so that when you hear 
the church chimes strike five, 
you can instantly whip off your 
pants and step into a comfy 
pair of jeans. Please note, 
though, that Jeans once again 
become immodest at 4:00 a.m. 

So if you have a habit of 
sleeping in your clothes, set 
your alarm accordingly. 

Dear Art: 

For two long years I walked 
a mile or more to get to my car 
when I wanted to go some- 
where. In fact, the first of 
those years I couldn't even use' 
my car! Now that I'm an 
upperclassman, they're not 
giving me my own parking 
space near to the dorm. I hope 
there's a good explanation for 

Dear Troubled Car Owner: 
I have heard similar griev- 
ances expressed in the halls of 
Talge. Yes, there is a good 
explanation. The deans have 
decided this year to promote 
the relaxing sport of cruising. 
By not assigning parking spots 
they have now encouraged 
students to drive around the 
parking lot looking for a place 
to park. It is their belief that in 
due time many will become 
involved and cruising will be 
introduced into SMC's intra- 
mural program. 

Dear Art: 

In looking through Talge 
Hall's handbook I notice, to 
my amazement, that there is a 
fine of $100 for possession of 
fireworks, but only a $25 fine 
for possession of firearms. 
Does this make sense to you? 

Dear Handbook Gazer: 

Of course it makes sense! 
Fireworks make a lot of noise 
and disrupt students attempt- 
ing to study. Firearms, on the 
other hand, can be equipped 
with silencers, thus avoiding 
the loud noises. TJiose sto- 
dents receiving the fine for 
firearms apparently are using 
weapons not equipped with 
the silencer. These students 
may purchase the necessary 
noise remover at the Southern 
Mercantile for a minimal fee. 

Dear Mr. Jordan: 

I understand that movie 
attendance is not encouraged 
by SMC. Why are fiicks shown 
on the dorm TV's then, that 
just came out of the theater? 


Dear Wondering One: 
You evidently have the 
wrong concept of why movies 
are not encouraged. The plush 
seats provided in the theaters 
of today allow for slouching 
and comfort while enjoying 
the movie. The students of 
this college need to maintain 
proper posture, and therefore, 
are given the hard wooden 
"blechers" to seat themselves 

Dear Art: 

It amazes me that males are 
not allowed in the Thatcher 
lobby after 8:00 p. m. , but that 
the young ladies are invited to 
use the Talge lobby until 10:30 
p.m. I don't think that even 

you can give me a gobS 
explanation for this discrep- 
Dear Doubting Writer: 
Certainly I have an expla- 
nation! There are several time 
lines that run through the 
campus, particulariy through 
the mall. Thus, when it is 8:00 
in Thatcher, it is 10:30 in 
Talge. The women's deans 
realize this and have, thank- 
fully, made the proper adjust- 
ments. The student senate is 
presently considering asking 
"Ye Olde Timekeeper" to set 
one face of his clock to one 
time and the opposite face to 
the other time. At the present, 
however; the clock still shows 
Talge Standard Time. 

Cent, from 2 (^ ^■^\^

I am forced to limit the

many forms will be printed up, 
so don't waste any forms, and

The men and 
gles tennis tournaments were 
concluded this past week. In 
the womens tournament, it 
was Kelly Wygal defeating 
Debbie Morgan two straight 
sets by scores of 6-1 and 6-1 to 
capture the title. Morgan was 
the number one seed in the 
tournament but Wygal proved 
to be more than her equal in 
the finals.

Kuhlmaii Witnesses Voyager Signals 

Ray Hefferlin 

The National Aeronautics 
and Space Administration in- 
vited Dr. Henry Kuhlman, 
associate professor of physics, 
to the Jet Propulsion Labora- 
tory in California to witness 
receipt of the signals from 
Voyager as it flew closest to 
the planet Saturn. On Tues- 
day. Nov. 11, at 11:05 p.m. 
EST, Voyager made its closest 
approach to Saturn's enor- 
mous moon. Titan, and scien- 
tists were eager to see any 
clues about the warmth, at- 
mosphere, and habitability of 
that satellite (such as the 
volcano seen erupting on one 

of Jupiter's moons.) On 
Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 5:10 
p.m. EST, Voyager most 
closely approached the giant 
planet itself. Dr. Kuhlman 
and other NASA guests were 
in the JPL command center all 
day Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Dr. Kulhman has consistent- 
ly followed NASA's space 
program. He want to Cape 
Canaveral on three occasions 
to watch launches of the 
stupendous Saturn V Apollo 
spacecraft with astronaunts 
bound for the moon. 

Dr. Kuhlman also watches 

other events in space by 
telescope, camera, and on 
occasions or total solar eclips- 
es by traveling to the best 
observing site. 

Dr. Kuhlman teaches the 
introductory astronomy class 
at SMC every spring semes- 
ter. He designed the sun-dial 
which adorns the knoll betwe- 
en Thatcher Hall and the 
tennis courts. He has also 
written an article on the 
sun-dial's design which is 
being typeset by "Sky and 
Telescope," a world renowned 
star-watchers' journal.

Auditorium. The performance 
will be free of charge and 
since no tickets will be sold

Because the play was such a 
siiccess with audiences last 
year, the cast was invited to 
perform in Atlanta, Charlotte, 

and Asheville, N.C. The 
actors will begin their tour 

Family Portrait is the story 
of the family of Jesus. One 
never sees Jesus in the play, 
but does see the reactions of 
His family toward His work, 
His teachings, and His death. 

It is a poingnant play and the 
actors rendor it beautifully.

— ■Viewpoint 


In my mind, the glories of fall have just begun to unfold. 
The skys are blue and brightly clear, the leaves have 
carpeted the ground, and the smell of moth balls is only 
faint now in my sweater. As I drive down the road in my 
car, I find myself humming "Over the River and Through 
the Woods" and smile that Thanksgiving is nearing. 

I approach the shopping center still naively humming 
my reminiscent tune, only to fmd, horror of all horrors, 
that I am anticipating the wrong holiday. There isn't a 
miniture pilgrim or Mayflower in sightl 

Instead, I am greeted by tinsel garlands, large, white 
trees with blue ornaments, and candy canes. Boxes of 
Christmas cards are tottering everywhere and I even 
detect the certain "holiday brusqueness" in some of the 
store clerks. The toy departments are overflowing into 
household wares, construction has already started on 
Santa's corner, and for a moment. I think I even hear the 
strains of "Jingle Bells." 

In panic, I rush back to the safety of my car and weakly 
drive home. 

Having relayed this tale of woe, I should now like to 
address who ever it is that dictates holidays. ..Please let 
me savor and enjoy Thanksgiving before hurdling me into

fKiUL^ "^ College, the Seventh-day Adventtsi ( 




Dear Editor: 

I would like to take exception 
to some of the comments 
made by Reno Thompson 
about recreational basketball 
here at SMC. I believe his 
comments are grossly exag- 
gerated and therefore need to 
^e addressed. 

First of all, Mr. Thompson 
points out that the gym is 
usually full five minutes after 
it is opened. If this is the case, 
what is stopping him from 
organizing teams and begin- 
ning a game? If there are so 
many players who want a "fair 
chance of showing their tal- 
ents," then starting a game . 
would not seem very difficult. I 
1 believe a little organizational 1 
initiative by Mr. Thompson or 
others who feel as he does, 
would be more appropriate 
than a condemnation of the 
whole system. 

Secondly, I must reject his 
favorable comparison of play- 
ground ball to SMC basket- 
ball. 1 have also played in the 
playground where "guys 
make up their own rules". 
What I've found is that sport- 
manship is nonexistent and 
many games turn into contests 
of ego and one-upmanship. 
The "survival of the fittest" 
rule of the street is one of the 
most basic of lessons to be 
learned in the playground. To 
compare SMC's relatively 
tame style of play to play- 
ground ball is neither a fair 
assessment nor an objective 

finally, while it is obvious 
there are no Larry Bird's or 
Dr. J's on this campus, it is 
equally as obvious that there 
is a talent differential. This 
differential must be recog- 
nized for the sake of the 
beginning player as well as 
the advanced. To place a 
beginner on the court with 
more advanced players can 
only discourage the beginner. 
On the other hand, the ad- 
vanced player can only im- 
prove playing against players 
of his own cali r or slightly

the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy aren't inspired, then we'll 
have to throw out our present religion and start from 
scratch. I'm not prepared to do that. 
Ken Wiseman, senior, theology, Murfreesboro, ^^ 
Somewhat saddening. I expect her validity as a prophet lo 
stand through it all. Meanwhile, we must learn what « 
can from this. 

Elder Douglas Bennett. Professor of Religion, SMC: 
To some it may be a surprise to discover Ellen White use" 
more sources than previously, imagined. I believe the 
problem lies with our misconception of what inspiratioj 
actually is. In the final analysis, I think these facts 
broaden our concept of how inspiration works in a pes:

Elder Helmut Ott, Assistant Professor of ReliS'"' 
Quite frankly, I'm more concerned about the conclusie, 
many people will draw on the basis of these "findings^ 
than about the "findings" themselves. Most of us k* 
that she used sources for the Great Controversy ai"> ' 
her writings on health, and were not disturbed by it- "

Of all the problems encountered by 
successful eaters, tfie most dreaded of 
all Is substantial weight loss and its side 
effects: becoming too desirable, expen- 
sive tailoring bills, not being recognized 
by friends, and, if you've been success- 
ful, constantly falling through bench 

Fortunately, recent discoveries in the 
field of fat research have produced new 
information on avoiding weight loss, no 
matter how excellent your diet or how 
determined you are to succeed. By 
observing the following rules, all based 
on this new research, you'll find that, 
despite having given up muffins and no 
longer sending your Candygranns, you 
won't shed so much as a pound. In fact, 
if you're especially diligent, you may 
even put on enough to bend a see-saw. 
Ready? Just open your belt a few 
notches, and we'll begin.... 


Ignore everything you have ever seen, 
heard and read about age, muscle tone, 
body alignment and motivation. 


Never set aside time for fitness 

Constantly slump when sitting, 
standing and walking. 

Enjoy and nuture the "grapefruit" 
flesh on your thighs and hips. 


Never allow yourself to walk up the 
stairs too fast, run to the cafe to get in 
line first, become excited at a ball 
game, or make use, of any kind, of the 
running track. Never indulge in tennis 
hauling lumber, or bike-riding. Stick to 
sedentary activities with minimal effort. 

Whittling, addressing envelopes and 
counting dimes. 

the art 

Never allow yourself to skip a meal or 
even be slighted by servings. 

Drive your car to every class. 

Always pick up a few cartons of whole 
milk for meals. Not only Is it loaded 
with vitamins, but also with plenty of fat 
so drink up. 

Avoid every sort of rabbit food: 
lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, 
carrots, ect. 


Get plenty of snacks at meal time to 
enjoy between meals and late at night. 
The later the better. 


Constantly allow yourself to think 
about food. Always await meal time 
with glee and think about all the 
fattening foods you love. 


Refuse any kind of will power. Have 
no strength in avoiding bakeries, pret- 
zel carts, Baskin Robbins, and always 
flirt with the Good Humor man. 


Buy clothes one size too large. This 
offers the opportunity of having friends 
tell you how small you look while you 
play the glutton and "grow" into them.

Don't chew thoroughly. Mastication is 
a terrible time-waster. Really deft 
eaters chew with their teeth held wide 
apart. This allows the stomach and 
digestive track to slow its mettle. You 
should also chew very fast which 
permits you to "pack it away" even 
under the most adverse conditions. 
This allows you to steal off your 
neighbors plate without getting caught 
and consume a Master Burger while 
playing the harmonica. 


Flirt with danger. Spend your vacation 
in an ice cream parlor. Take deep 
breaths when passing Italian restau- 
rants and hover over the buffet table at 
weddings, judicial hearings, and group 
or club parties. 


Eat compulsively. Use food as a 
substitute for other satisfactions. Eat 
Oreos instead of asking for a raise. 
Consunie a pound of fudge or an entire 
bannana cream pie to help you over- 
come your fear of high places. 


Never start your diet today. TTie more 
you procrastinate, the better your 
chances of preserving your waistline 

24. ^. 

Never count carbohydrates. Tnis 
guarantees immunity to carbohydrate 
deficiency, a condition that causes loose 
fitting pants and also strange behavior. 
(One tragic case found a woman who 
was deprived of bread for six months 

holding a piece of pumpernickel to her 
ear and listening for the ocean.) 


Always use heaps of sugar. The 
consumption of glucose can easily 
compensate for the thinning effect of 
salad and tea. 

Eat when you're miserable and lonely. 
This is also known as eating your heart 

Always clean your plate. Make a habit 
of finishing everything in front of you 
(except wishbones and fruit pits). 
Possibly you'll decide to leave uneaten 
any food that has been dropped on the 
floor. The truly dedicated binger, 
thinks nothing, however, of picking up 
a French-fry or beating a dog to a fallen 
Veal Cutlet. 

As you can see, there Is no easy way to 
keep your weight up. There will betime 
when you're tempted to cheat-substi- 
tuting carrots for candy, cauliflower for 
pasta, and bowling for binging. But 
with resolve and determination, you, 
too, can have difficulty emerging grace- 
fully from a sports car. Happy binging.

JntrOSpeCt: wisdom from Kings & Wise 

"And the only way to treat 
cancer is..." The even-toned 
voice of the most famous 
physician in the world trailed 
off into silence as the twelve 
medical students in the con- 
suddenly transfixed, eagerly 
anticipating the conclusion of 
this significant statement. 

This was a momentous 
meeting, carrying grave por- 
tent for every living person as 
well as for all who would be 
born in the future. For four 
nd years the blight of 
cancer had ravaged the world, 
painfully terminating the li\ 
of hundreds of unfortunate 
victims. Hope w; 

cont. from 

that in my experience at SMC 
there have been only a few 
isolated incidents of unsports- 
manlike conduct. On the 
whole, the sportsmanship is 
good and most players have 
not lost sight of the 
for playing: to improve their 
skills and abilities, to 
fully interact with their fellov 
students, and to have fun ii 

existent in the ^leart of anyone 
diagnosed as having this mor- 
tal illness, while those who 
were free of this disease lived 
in continual dread lest they 
contact it. 

But now, one of the most 
important medical break- 
throughs of the century was on 
the verge of rectifying this 
situation. The twelve students 
pondered as to what the cure 
would be. For three and 

one-half years the Great Phy- 
sician had experimented with 
his medicine, actively solici- 
ting "guinea pig" cancer 
patients who would submit to 
his treatments. His success 
rate was quite high; in fact, 
one-hundred percent of his 
patients were cured and no 
one complained of side 
effects. However, he would 
not be satisfied until everyone 
realized the potential of this 

medicine to arrest the cancer 
mortality rate, so he had 
planned this forum at which 
time he was to reveal hiw new 
miracle cure. It would then be 
available to the entire world. 
Following the announce- 
ment of the forum period, 
many conjectures had been 
made as to the identity of this 
successful treatmerit for can- 
cer proposed by the famous 
doctor. Some theorized that he 

had combined certain 
chemicals to create a 
modernistic drug, while others 
suggested that he would only 
reveal the mechanics of a new 
method for hydrotherapy 

The twelve doctors-to-be 
strained to listen as the 
greatest physician who ever 
lived prepared to conclude his 
sentence. "And the only way 
to treat cancer is.. .with love!"

The Southern Missionary 
College Symphony Orchestra 
presents in its annual fall 
concert, double-bass virtuoso, 
Gary Karr, who is acclaimed 
by critics to be the world's 
greatest living string bass 
soloist and one of the most 
exciting concert performers on 
any instrument. The concert 
wiil be Saturday, Nov. 22 at 8 
p.m. in the P.E. Center. 

Orlo Gilbert, associate pro- 
fessor of music, and the 70 
member symphony will per- 
form such exciting works as 
Borodine's Polovetsian 

dances numbers eight and 17, 
from "Prince Igor." with stu- 
dent soloist Jenine Fryling; 
The Drangonetti Concerto, 
and Fantasy on a Theme from 
the Opera "Moses in Egypt" 
by Paganini-Rossini, in which 
Gary Karr is to solo. Other 
music on the program includes 
Berstein's "Overture to Can- 
did." and Handel's "Theo- 
dore Overture." 

Gary Karr is indeed a 
profound musician who has 
performed with such orches- 
tras as the New York Philhar- 
monic, the London Philhar- 
monic, and the Olso Philhar- 
monic. Recordings have been 
made by brand names as 
R.C.A,, Golden Crest, Colum- 
bia and others- Karr has just 

returned from a five week 
concert tour in Europe and is 
currently artist-in-residence 
and member of the music 
faculty at the Hartt College of 
Music in Hartford.CT. 

The International Press in 
Montreal had this to say 
concerning Karr: "He makes 
the elephant of the strings 
seem as nimble as an jmpala. 
executing skips and runs with 
the accuracy and always with 
musical purpose." And, in 
Boston, this: "Gary Karr 
makes the double-bass sound 
like a purring, golden pussy- 
cat. ..convincing evidence of 
the place the double-bass is 
capable of achieving in mas- 
terly, charismatic hands."

The attitude that a good Christian education is essential 

"^ for the proper development of one's character has existed 

' for a long time. Our schools are designed to elevate the 

young people of cur faith to a higher understanding and 

appreciation of education. 

Mrs White has written many articles and letters 
explaining her position on Seventh-day Adventist schools. 
But throughout the years, I feel what used to be respect 
for the combined church and schools has grown mto an 
inculcated lifestyle. 

SDA colleges have been made to appear as though they 
provided the only acceptable form of quality education. If 
a student leaves an SDA college to attend a public 
university, he is immediately considered to have a dnftmg 
relationship with the Lord. 

I think this is a very narrow-minded conception. 
Because a student wishes to continue his education 
elsewhere does not place him in a position of personal 
religious neglect. While our colleges provide their 
students with very acceptable and highly qualified 
educational facilities, they don't always please everyone 
who is interested in nondenominational work. 
"But private colleges maintain a religious sincerity." 
Well, this expression has taken on a trite validity. The only 
reason onewon't make it in the "real world" is that his 
relationship with God is weak. It might be that some 
exposure to the outside world might alter that complacent 
attitude many SDA's take. 

While SDA students belong in Christian schools, I 
believe there is also a place for SDA's in public 
universities. A great deal of work can be done there by 
reaching many souls for Christ and His service. Cf^A

Attendance Policy 

Dear Editor: 

Since I have been here at 
SMC, I have had a hard time 
getting used to the forced 
classroom attendance policy. 
A policy where by the teacher 
may drop your grade after you 
have missed a specific number 
of class periods. This policy 
seems needless. If the class 
time was really that edifying, 
then by missing a lot of classes 
the students' grades would 
naturally drop. In many 
classes, however, the period is 
spent in babying the student. I 
mean by this the rereading of 
the syllabus or textbook with 
very little pertinant infor- 
mation given, so that a 
student would only need to 
read the material and show up 
for the quizzes to be able to 
successfully complete the 
course. This method of 
teaching could be due to the 



premise that the student is not 
responsible enough to read 
the material for himself. If the

s gift of prophecy a 


Editor's Note: Recently the 
members of the Seventh-day 
Adventist community in 
Southern California were 
shocked to read in the morn- 
ing edition of the Los Angeles 
Times that Elder Walter Rea. 
pastor of the Long Beach, 
California, SDA church, had 
submitted information to the 
public that Ellen White was a 
plagiarist. The front-page ar- 
ticle was written by the Reli- 
gion Editor of the Times and 
included a large exhibit of 
Ellen White's alleged plagia- 
rism for the public to observe. 
As a result of this, the 
Southern California Confer- 
ence executive committee, on 
November 13. 1980. removed 
Elde Rea's ministerial creden- 
tials and terminated his em- 
ployment with the church. 

an increasingly important 
issue to our church. So we 
looked for someone to discuss 
it with on behalf of our 
readers. We discovered that 
Elder Edwin Zackrison. Asso- 
ciate Professor of Religion, a 
strong supporter of Ellen 
White's gift of prophecy, was 
a personal friend of Elder Rea. 
We asked him to reflect his 
relationship with Elder Rea as 
yvell as to share some of his 
observations concerning the 
current crisis in our church 
over this issue. 

ELLEN WHITE: Inspired 

ACCENT: Elder Zackrison. 
why has Ellen White become 
such an issue in the church all 
of a sudden? 

ZACKRISON: Ellen White has 
always been an issue in our 

A: What do you mean? 

Z: Every generation has had 
to wrestle with Ellen White's 
role in our ehurch--now it is 
our turn. Early Adventists had 
to answer the question, What 
do we do with this living 
phenomenon? Middle Adven- 
tists had to deal with the fact 
that there was no more living 
phenomenon. For example, 
the 1919 Bible Conference 
discussed this problem and 
apparently the brethren then 
simply decided to Hve with the 

tensions, and the record of the 
conference was buried--only in 
1974 did we receive access to 
it. Modern Adventists are 
again challenged to face the 
historical data that is accu- 
mulating in a square and 
honest way. I believe that we 
must interpret this new data in 
a way that will be most helpful 
to the church and all the 
people who love God and 
truth. Such inquiry involves 
questions, historical obser- 
vations, analysis of data. It is 
hard and risky work. 

A: Why is it risky? 

Z: Because people's faith is 
involved. A major considera- 
tion for any Christian resear- 
cher is pastoral concern-a 
regard for people which recog- 

nizes their sensitivity'*

dismissed. Apparently their 
iloying agencies believed 
'tfiey moved too fast. I'm not 
suggesting their theology had 
no part in their problems, but I 
think the charge of lack of 
oral concern was really 
^e heart of their dismissals. 

However, I believe we all 
naJte a serious mistake if we 
assume now that because of 
these two men are gone the 
problems they stirred around 
jn ate solved. We may decry 
the ^pecessity of dealing res- 
pOD^bly with the problems 
they raised, but that does not 
change reality. Somebody 
must deal with their charges. 
They really have not been 
inswered adequately-- 
;specially Elder Rea. 

A: What has been your 
relationship with Elder Rea? 

Z: I did eight months of my 
nunisterial internship under 
in 1967 at the Alhambra 
church in southern California, 
ffe have been good friends 
ever since. 

A: Did Elder Rea demon- 
strate any kind of hatred or 
ntipalhy toward the writings 
of Ellen White when you 
worked with him? 

Z: No. 1 thought he was a bit 
rigid in his application of her 
writings, though he never 
believed in verbal inspiration. 
1 considered him an ultra 
conservative. The Spirit of 
Prophecy was clearly a major 
source of faith and practice for 
him. Anyone who knows Elder 
can tell you that he has 
been an intense student of 
Ellen White and an ardent 
supporter of her. 

k: If that is true, why would 
he embark on a project to 
discredit her? 

2: I've known about this 
project for eight years. It is not 
fair to suggest that he set out 
to discredit her. He is an 
inquisitive person and origi- 
nalJy he sought help to explain 
some data that did not corres- 
pond to what he believed, 
particularly in the extent of 
her use of sources. He has told 
many times of his hope 
that the White Estate would 
assist 'him in this so that the 
problems would be resolved. 
Their tendency to ignore his 
research and ridicule his 
methodology apparently con- 
tributed to his motivation to 
keep probing. As word got out 
that he was doing this study, 
all sorts of material began 
coming to him through the 
wail from people as far away 
as Europe. Somewhere along 
*e line he detected what he 
interpreted as a coverup and 
launched into a full-fledged 
search for his own answers. I 
think he has made some 
attempts to work in coopera- 

"Rea is accusing the White 
Estate and the leadership of the 
Adventist church with 
contributing to a major cover 

tion with the White Estate but 
it is quite obvious that com- 
munication between the two 
parties has been strained. 

A: We understand that you 
and Elder Springett have 
spent some time studying 
' Elder Rea 's material. Do you 
find any truth in his assertions 
that Ellen White copied 80 
percent of the material put out 

Z: No, but we have done 
little as yet. Our research so 
far confirms Elder Neal 
Wilson's public statement that 
we know now, thanks to Elder 
Rea, that Ellen White used 
sources more extensively than 
we have heretofore been 
aware of or recognized. How- 
ever, the rumor that our 
research will answer Rea's 
charges is exaggerated. 

The problem is extremely 
complex and it demands the 
attention of our most highly 
trained historians and literary 
critics. The General Con- 
ference has formed a com- 
mittee to work on this 

This is not the time to be 
making what 1 would call 
irresponsible assertions. It is 
not adequate to pass off this 
problem by asserting that we 
"always knew she used 
sources"-that is only half ture 
and it does not deal with the 
problem here. Nobody 1 know 
had any idea she used so many 

extensively, that is what Elder 
Wilson is saying, and he is 
absolutely right. 

A : Is plagiarism Elder Rea 's 
only charge? 

Z: No, and this is why 
theological assertations are 
not very helpful to deal well 
with Rea allegations. You see, 
he is claiming that Ellen 
White not only was a chronic 
plagiarist but that she inten- 
ded to deceive the public, 
perhaps for financial gain. 
Obviously such a charge is 
disconcerting for us who hold 
her in the highest esteem. He 
believes that the evidence he 

has amassed points to the 
conclusion that those editors 
and secretaries who worked 
for her were copying other 
authors right along and put- 
ting out material under her 
name, that she knew this was 
going on and that she encoura- 
ged her employees not to tell 
others about it. He says that 
he can "prove" that the 
writing of her books was a 
"clever, contrived, educated 
effort over a long period of 
time to deceive members and 
readers by cosmetically 
correcting what had been done 
in the past, ' ' and that much of 
what was published in her 
name was not hers at all but 
written by her associates. 
Furthermore, he alleges, 
"Mrs. White did not have the 
last word of what was written 
and did not always have the 
final say in what was pub- 

These are serious ethical 
charges that will not be silen- 
ced or answered simply by 
arguing whether "inspu-ation 
precludes originality," or 
even by removing Elder Rea's 
ministerial license. 

Elder Rea has an archive of 
material in California and 
nobody really knows what all 
he has in it. At this time he is 
comparatively free to make 
charges, some of which none 
of us can counter except with 
our own unsupported asser- 
tions-most of which have 
become threadbare with use. 
The White Estate and some of 
our church leaders, in fact 
most of us, have been relying 
on Mrs. White's integrity to 
counter where we think Rea's 
research is leading, but that 
doesn't work very go«d 
biicause his allegation implies 
that she was not a person of 

At the heart of the contro- 
versy, Rea is accusing the 
White Estate and the leader- 
ship of the Adventist church 
with contributing to a major 
coverup and with using Ellen 
White to formulate a quasi- 
theocratic authority system. 

A: Aren't these rather wild 

Z: They surely sound like it, 
don't they? 1 trust that our 
leaders will silence these 
claims with hard evidence. 
But until they do, I continually 
remind my students that 
charges and allegations are 
not facts. In America, you are 
innocent until proven guilty. 
We are still waiting for the 
bulk of evidence Rea claims he 
has. In a forthcoming book he 
says he will divulge it. 

A: If it should prove true- 
merely thinking for a moment 
about the worst-that 80 per- 
cent of her material was either 


copied or paraphrased, wouia 
this affect our concept of her 

Z: That depends on what 
"our concept of inspiration" 
is. The Adventist church has 
really never set down a con- 
cept of inspiration explicity. 
We have just said, "We 
believe in the inspiration of 
Ellen White." That everyone 
knows what this means has 
been taken for granted. But it 
is not clear. Some interpret 
this to mean that she was 
infallible in all her religious, 
scientific, historical, etc., 
utterings and pennings (or at 
least act that way); others take 
this to mean that only her 
theological statements are 
infallible. A third group 
believes she was primarily 
used as a messenger of God to 
help start this church move- 
ment but that her writings are 
historically conditioned and 
therefore antiquated in places. 

Unfortunately, many 
Adventists seem oblivious to 
these several schools of 
thought in our church and 
tend to judge others by their 
own understanding. But 
actually, it is these varying 
interpretations of Ellen 
White's role that explains 
much of our pluralism and 
what people see as "double- 
standards" among us. 

The position that we have 
taken, and which I think we 
are all pretty much agreed on 
is this: "We do not regard the

really never set down a concept of 
inspiration explicitly. We have 
just said, 'We believe in the 
inspiration of Ellen White.' " 

writing of Ellen G. White as 
an addition to the sacred 
canon of Scripture. We do not 
think of them as of universal 
application as is the Bible, but 
particularly for the' 

Seventh-day Adventist 
church. We do not regard 



; the 

Holy Scriptures which 'stand 
alone and unique as the 
standard by which all other 
writings much be judged."

Inspired? con. 

that actually says nothing 
about "inspiration." 

In spite of all this, you are 
asking the wrong question, 
because Rea's charge is not 
concerned with the theological 
concept of inspiration. He is 
asking: "Will a person who 
claims to be the recipient of 
the spiritual gift of prophecy 
intentionallydeceive the public 
for financial ends?" We must 
listen to that question if we are 
going to give him an answer. I 
am fully aware that we don't 
like the question, but I will 
guarantee you this: Our 
enemies will listen to his 
question! And both our 
friends and our enemies will 
listen intently for our answer, 
too. If we evade it, they will 
say we can't answer it. 

A: Can Rea prove inten- 

Z: Ah, now you're getting 
the point. I do not believe 
intentionality can be 
"proved." Intentionality is a 
motive, so you can only amass 
evidence and try to convince 
your jury. But I will guarantee 
you one thing-Rea will set 
forth his most persuasive 
arguments for intentionality, 
if he is convinced it is true. We 
must be ready for that. My 
plea is to guard ourselves 
against vulnerability. 

A: To what extent do you 
\ believe Mrs. White could have 
borrowed literarily and still be 
considered "inspired"? 

Z: Nobody knows the 
answer to that. One SDA 
scholar has asserted that even 
if she copied 100 percent of 
her material it would not 

from page 5 

change things. That is an 
overstatement. I don't think it 
is a good answer. His point is 
that inspiration does not equal 
originality. But that's not the 
issue. Nobody disagrees on 
this, including Rea. 

A: Is is not true that Biblical 


Z: Yes. But I'm not sure I 
want to use that line of 
reasoning to justify Ellen 
White either. Adventisls have 
never held Ellen White's gift 
to be completely comparable 
to that of the Bible writers, 
and the similarities are not all 
that close in this problem. I 
would rather not make ties, 
where, if she tumbles, the 
Bible comes tumbling after. 
Our church has consistently 
denied that we have more than 
one rule of faith and practice. 
We ought to reiterate that 
again now even if we don't 
have all the questions 
answered about Ellen White 

A: Where is Rea getting all 
his material? 

Z: From all over the 
country. He claims to have 
' ' moles" at some of our 
schools. Much of it is 
supposedly from the several 
White vaults. Many private 
parties have sent him 
material. At the Glacier View 
meeting this past summer, the 
Adventist scholars in atten- 
dance made a plea to the 
White Estate to throw open 
the doors of the vauU and 
make available all that is in 
there so we can really deal 
with the_ problem; and so our 

critics who continue to sing 
the "repression of informa- 
tion" soon will have their vocal 
chords cut. A committee was 
appointed to study that 

A: Could you comment on 
the content of Rea's book that 
you alluded to and what ejfect 
you think it may have on our 
church as well as the outside? 

Z: I know little about the 
book. I have a hunch it will be 
something of a "quest for the 
historical Ellen White." Other 
such books have come out in 
the past and, unfortunately, 
perhaps the White Estate has 
done more than anyone else to 
advertise them. (One problem 
with apologetics is that it gives 
the opponent's argument 
sometimes clearer than the 
opponent does!) Surely the 
enemies of our church will 
have a big time with it. 

I think we could counter 
much of its effect by publically 
reaffirming our stand on the 
Holy Scriptures. We ought 
also to take another honest 
look at ourselves to perceive 
whether we have really 
treated Ellen White fairly in 
the light of her wishes and 
claims. If we make more rash 
comparisons which leave the 
impression that we have 
canonized Ellen White, or 
keep setting forth forceftil but 
unsupported theological 
assertions concerning ques- 
tions Rea is not asking, I think 
we are in for hard times. Our 
enemies would love to pin the 
charge of -cultism" on us. A 
refusal to stand on Scripture 
as our sole base of faith and 

practice will give them reason 
to make it appealing to others. 

A: Wasn't Elder Rea 
unethical in taking this to a 
secular newspaper? 

Z: I don't defend or condone 
that method. I think it's a 
shame that we had to get this 
through the Los Angeles 
Times in 1980. 1 wish we could 
have dealt with it in 1920. 

A: Mrs. White prophesied 
that the last deception wold be 
to make of none effect the 
testimony of the Spirit of God. 
How would you relate to this 
statement in the light of recent 
developments in our church 
with Qr. Ford and Elder Rea? 

Z: We make of none effect 
the testimony of the Spirit of 
God more by our actions than 
by our theological affir- 
mations. If you believe Ellen 
White's statements are infal- 
lible, then you better live 
according to them completely. 
If not, your words are empty. 
Furthermore, a quest for truth 
is not an attack. The sides are 
not clear in this controversy. 
Every person must stand 
alone. Coverups do more harm 
to her authority than looking 
at evidence. I don't want to 
believe that we have anything 
to hide. Personally. I want to 
see the evidence from both 
sides. Those who don't, 
should really cease comment- 
ing on the situation because 
we're becoming so embroiled 
in theological conflict it is 
beginning to muddy our evan- 
gelistic vision. 

A: What is your suggestion 
for us who do not have the 
materials to study or really the 

all the 
evidence in this matter? 

Z: We have two enemies; 
Lethargy and closed- 
mindedness. If you care 
enough to comment, you are 
probably not lethargic; but 
you might comment irres- 
ponsibly because you are 
closed-minded. So we must be 
careful. Accusations are easy 
to make and hard to fight. 

I would simply suggest; (1) 
Don't panic. (2) Try to be 
magnanimous enough toward 
those who are wrestling wit!i 
*his problem to refrain from 
jumping to , premature 
judgments about where they 
or their research wil! lead, 
Don't be quick to throw her 
out. Yet, look at the evidence 
skeptically enough so you are 
not premature in your final 
conclusion. (3) Remeber. our 
faith is based on the weight of 
evidence. The existence oftlie 
Adventist church and the good 
it has done is powerful evi- 
dence of God's leading 
through Mrs. White. For all 
its shortcomings, there is 
really nothing like it in histo^- 
We must not overlook that. H) 
Keep in mind that the 
evidence Elder Rea will pre- 
sent can probably be inter- 
preted at least in two ways- 
His argument may be irreW ■ 
able but that does not maken 
either true or helpful. Manj

November 20, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

.Of Thanksgivings Remembered... 

Each year, as I travel away to college, it 
gets worse. The waiting for days without 
ceasing to go by so Thanksgiving vacation 

I wait for it like I used to wait at the 
corner for the Good Humor Ice Cream 
truck; it was always just around the corner 
and it seemed simply ages until it finally 
stopped by me. Now, there is less than a 
week before Thanksgiving and containment 
is barely possible. I can hardly wait to go 
home and see Mom and Dad, and my dog. 

As Departure Day gets closer, waves of 
nostalgia sweep over me, and I reminisce 
about Thanksgivings had when 1 was 

Mom usually started baking goodies 
about a week before the real eating even 
commenced. I was beyond me why I 
couldn't have at least ONE cookie made or a 
little piece of apple pie that was baked, but 
Mother was firm. 

"Not until Thanksgiving." she'd say 

"But, Mom," I'd whine. 

"No!" she'd repeat with that 
Mother-said-no-so-don't-ask-again look on 
her face. I'd sigh and walk dejectedly into 
the family room and pout for a few minutes. 

The day before Thanksgiving was when 
the excitement would begin to brew. Daddy 
would drive over to Gramma and Grampa's 
house to pick up the Norwegian crumb 
cookies and the stuffing (Gramma makes 
the best stuffing in the entire world), then 
he'd do the last minute shopping for Mom, 
like grabbing up some extra Cool Whip, 
getting another jug of apple cider, and 
picking the tablecloth up from the cleaners. 
(I always liked to go with him, because he 
could always be persuaded to purchase 
some extra ice cream or soda, just in case 
we ran out of pie and cider). 

Thanksgiving Eve, Mom would be 
rushing around trying to glaze the carrots, 
unfreeze the string beans, and shoo David 
and me out of the crumb cookies, as well as, 
extracting the exact whereabouts of the 
silver serving spoons from me, since I had 
put them away the last time we entertained. 
Poor Mommy! 

That night was an exceptional night for 
TV. All the "first Thanksgiving" cartoons 
were shown. The Mouse on the Mayflower 
was a favorite, so was the Peanuts 
Thanksgiving. I usually went to bed 
content after Bugs Bunny got his holiday 

Around five in the morning, I'd wake up 
to wonderful scents sneaking through the 
crack under my bedroom door. Then I'd 
hear Mom shuffling around in the kitchen, 
checking on the turkey. That's the 
definition of security for me right there, 
when Mom checks on the holiday bird at 
five a.m. It kind of gives you a nice, cozy 

After Gramp* said grace (in Norwegian), 
we got down to the serious business of 
eating. My plate would overflow with 
turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, string 
beans, cranberry sauce, and gravy poured 
Y2 over everything, with a little pond of it in 
Pt^ / the potatoes. (Not to forget the soft dinner 
.V^ / rolls with butter melting gently into the 
nooks and crannies). 

If the Redskins happened to be winning, 
you could hear the TV from the table, if not, 
we waited tii the news to see how badly they 
were beaten. 

Thanksgiving mornings are full of 
parades, but, as I grew older, parades got 
boring. Funny, how they are always turned 

n anyway, huh" 

Around the late morning, we'd go out in 
the crisp, biting air and play some tackle 
football. It was so cold, your upper lip 
turned numb after four plays. But, boy, did 
I love it! There's no greater feeling of 
accomplishment in the world than hurling 
yourself into the person with the ball and 
have that player crumple beneath you. 

After about two hours of grappling for 
pigskin, I'd stumble inside, all full of grass 
and sweat, and half frozen. 

Mom would scream, "Don't set foot on 
the carpet, your Father just vacuumed it. 
Go the garage way! " 

Silently, I'd moan, but. that was the price 
of jockdom. 

When I walked into the family room, I 
could smell those wonderful holiday odors (I 
can almpst breathe them in now, hmmmml) 
Walking into the kitchen, the windows 
were foggy with the stuffy smells of turkey 
just removed from the oven, potatoes ready 
for mashing, glazed carrots, soft dinner 
rolls, and warmed-up pies. It was enough 
to knock me down. 

I quickly showered off, while the family 
began to arrive. Aunty Gerrie came first to 
help Mom, then Gramma and Gramp in 
their light blue 1960 Rambler, (Nanny 
usually came with thgm). 

Herb, Merry, and their three girls, 
Vivian, Martha, and Johanna would come. 
I liked Herb, he'd tell jokes and sing me 
songs. The only trouble was some of tUb 
jokes weren't funny, and when I'd sing the 
songs to Mom she'd tell me never everto 
sing them again. / ^ 

Dishes to me were, and still are, the 
thorn in Thanksgiving's side. Looking up at 
the kitchen counter, it seemed like every 
dish in the house was dirty. But what a 
sense of fulfillment in drying the last huge 
cooking pani 

With the dishes done, everyone piled into 
the livingroom to show off family pictures, 
exchange "news" of friends and relatives, 
and have dessert. Soon after the adults got 
situated and involved in conversation, all 
of the kids would retreat into the rec room to 
watch John Alden, and Miles Standish vie 
for Priscilla's hand. Then came the ABC 
Thanksgiving Special with Bob Hope doing 
funny pilgrim skits. I always got to stay up 
later than usualy because of company. 

Now that I'm older, I caast^y up as late 
as I want, but a few things haven't 
changed. Daddy and I still do the last 
minute errands, and Mom stiil lets us. 
Everyone still shows up, even though 
Grampa's Rambler died last year. I still 
have to do a mountain range of dishes, and I 
watch The Mouse On The Mayflower. But 
the best part of Thanksgiving for me is still 
the same. It's divided up into two paftk: (1) 
Getting into my little bed. under the covers 
with an entirely full stomach, and, (2) ' 
Knowing that I'll be able to have turkey 
sandwiches for months to cornel

and finally gives us a better 
base for our personal faith, if 
it helps to challenge things we 
have taken for granted, if it 
teaches us the danger of 
reliance on the institution to 
do our thinking for us, if it 
helps us to be more precise in 
our expression of faith, then 
out of this crisis can come 
some very rich and helpful 
solutions. Every generation of

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCE^^T/Dece^lber 5, 1980 


Dear Santa, 

Well, by the way the shopping malls are decked out, I 
take it Christmas is coming, so I'm taking this opportunity 
to get my requests in eariy. 

This year, Santa, I want to ask for a few favors which in a 
way are gifts not only for me, but for others, too. 

I'd like, if at all possible, to have the huge boulder in the 
middle of the Thatcher Hall sidewalk removed. While 
you're at it, why not do something with the three crags 
blocking the Annex entrance? In the morning when I 
stumble up to class, I invariably trip over one of them. 
'I'd also like for you to adjust the chimes so that they gong 
out the right time. You just don't know, Santa, the terror 
that reverberates thru my body when the morning bells 
loudly proclaim the tenth hour just as I get out of the 
shower at 7 a.m. 

Is there any chance of you bringing an uprooted fir tree 
in your sleigh? I think it would be pleasant to have a real 
tree already planted in the ground instead of bringing in a 
cut-down tree every year. That way we can enjoy it all year 
long and use the money that is used for the trees to buy 
additional decorations. What do you think about that, 

Lastly, Santa, and I know this is next to impossible, but 
could you please see if there's any way that music could be 
pumped into the phone when all the cables are in use 
instead of having the harsh, grating click-click noise that 
now impairs so many ears? 

If you could do any of these things, 1 would be much

Rationale Behind Jeans Questioned 

Throughout the historical 
development of western 
thought, there have been 
many phases of attitudes. The 
late 1960's produced the 
greastest fluctuation of Ro- 
manticism our nation has ex- 
perienced in the 20th century. 
Romanticism is characterized 
by the rejection of authority. 
Anarchism, a rejection of all 
forms of government, and 
Nihilism, a rejection of tradi- 
tional beliefs, were on the 
rise. There was a great 
interest in various forms of 
escape from reality: the 
weird, the exotic, the gro- 
tesque, the absurd, the irra- 
tional and the mystical, the 
pop groups were singing 
songs like "Baby Baby 1 Can't 
Take It No More" and "Revo- 
lution." Demonstrations 
swept the country. There 
were riots and draft card 
burnings. Then came the 
greatest escape artists of all, 
the hippies. The longhaired 
flower-children, stereotyped 
by all kinds of immoral filth: 
drugs, sex, rock-n-roll, pink 
carnation micro-buses and 
blue jeans. . . yes. FADED, 

:en ten years now and 
e changed. The 
gone. Our gener- 
)re concerned with 
meeting life's challenges head 
on instead of finding ways to 
escape. Guy's hairstyles are 
shorter and girl's sUrts are 
longer. But for some odd 
reason blue jeans have never 
escaped the labet tagged on 
them ten years ago. Evident- 
ly, to some, blue jeans still 
symbolize rebellion and a 
sloppy lifestyle. 

During the Romantic flux, 
our Adventist Institutions out- 
lawed beards and moustaches 
for awhile, but we have real- 
ized that beards and mous- 
taches no longer have the 
same connotations they had a 
few years ago, so the legisla- 
tion against them has been 
abolished. But why have we 
singled out blue jeans? Why 
have we frozen them in a time 
frame which is ten years old. 
1 submit that the present 
legislation against blue jeans 
serves no purpose and conse- 
quently should be aboHshed. 

I'm not a radical, blindly 
shouting (Jpwn authority. I 
believe in our institutions. I 
believes in the aims and goals 
of our college. However, I 
believe that the "laws" on 
blue jeans should be repealed 
for the following reasons: 

#1. The existing legislation 
IS clearly not supported by 
those who must maintain it. 
It's true that some faculty 

Its bee 
things hi 
hippies a 
ation is r 

have taken the initiative to 
stand up for the school's 
position. However, there is an 
obvious apathy displayed by 
the faculty as a whole on this 
issue. On Friday, October 23, 
nearly 50 percent of the stu- 
dents who exited from Lynn- 
wood Hall at the end of the 
1 1 :00 period were wearing 
blue jeans. During the Friday 
noon hour, 1 out of 4 students 
in the cafeteria were wearing 
blue jeans. On Tuesday, 
October 28, 26 out of 51 
students in the library at 4:00 
were wearing blue jeans. It is 
quite obvious that many of the 
faculty on this campus are 
making no attempt to uphold 
the legislation. 

It is a generally accepted 
axiom that if a rule is worth 
having, it is worth suppori:ing. 

Many of our faculty do not 
support: the blue jean law on a 
practical level. 1 interviewed 
several faculty members on 
this subject and received some 
rather amusing answers. I 
asked, "What is the rationale 
behind the blue jeans law?" 
One reply: "I think many of 
those at the faculty meeting 
were wondering the same 
thing." Another reply: "You 
won't find enough rationale to 
stick in your ear." 1 don't for 
one minute question the inte- 
grity of our faculty, rather, I 
believe in this case the value 
of the rule must be ques- 

#2. Other SDA colleges have 
dropped their legislation 
against blue jeans. I am well 
aware that just because "ev- 
eryone else does it" is not a 
good reason to do it, but in 
this case one observation is

conducted an anonymous poll 
of 30 randomly selected SMC 
students. Those students who 
indicated that they regularly 
wear blue jeans to class coni- 
piled an average 3.0 GPA. 
Those who do not wear jeans 
compiled a 2.85 GPA. 

And for what it's worth, al 
WWC I was a 4.0 student. I 
wore blue jeans regularly. I 
was a member of the honors 
program. Most of the stu- 
dents in the honors program 
were 4.0 students and the." 
regularly wore blue jeans. At 
SMC 1 do not wear blue jeans, 
and my average GPA a'

December 5, 1980/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 


The hotel lobby was empty. 
Silence prevailed for the first 
time all day. After many hours 
of facing hurried travellers, I 
was ready to lock up and go 
home, hoping to enjoy what 
remained of this Christmas 
Eve. Just a little work was yet 
to be done. 

i busied myself about the 
cash register, carefully sorting 
bills in stacks of fives, tens, 
and twenties. Business had 
been better than usual this 
Christmas season. In fact, 
every room in the posh inner- 
city motel at which I was 
manager contained guests. 
That is, every room except 
one. Not wishing to attract 
unwanted customers, I 
reached above the counter and 
flipped a switch. Outside, a 
neon sign blinked "No Va- 

Although I was glad Christ- 
mas had finally arrived and 
exultant with the brisk busi- 
ness I had done, one major 
disappointment lingered. It 
was the one empty room. 
Earlier that day, I had 
received a mysterious phone 
call. The anonymous caller 
had advised me to prepare for 
a special guest that 'evening. 
He had even hinted that it 
might be a wealthy king from 

a foreign country. Not wishing 
to be caught unprepared, I 
had immediately set about 
readying my best suite. It now 
stood immaculate, but empty. 
"I sure wish that king would 
drive up right now," I mused 
as I walked over to lock the 
lobby doors. After locking the

"Oh bother, can't they

seen me. But resigning myself 
to the unpleasant task of 
turning a customer away, I 
slowly walked across the lob- 
by. Without bothering to un-

My heart was heavy as I

jeans and I believe that "Nerd 
Day' ' showed the present 
attitude toward them. What 
do people wear when they 
want to look sick? Blue jeans? 
No. There were very few 
nerds who were dressed in 
blue jeans. On the contrary, 
most nerds wore stripped, 
checked, or plaid dress slacks. 

Blue jeans are not looked 
down upon in today's society. 
Also in the area of 
dogmatism comes the time 
element. Five o'clock is that 
magic moment when blue 
jeans suddenly become legal. 
The rationale is that classes 
are over and now we can relax. 

This time schedule fails to 
make allowances for those 
who work all morning. There 
is a girl who works in the 
nursery who carries an extra 

house motel guests, and I just 
had to save my best suite for 

pair of pants with her each day 
because she wants to eat in 
the cafeteria. She is reques- 
ted to wear jeans or overalls 
by the management at her job. 
She changes, eats lunch, then 
changes back again. 

1 met a part time student in 
the cafeteria line who was 
wearing off-white cords. He 
looked hideous. The pants 
were spotted with various 
substances which he readily 
identified: glue, grease, 
ground in dirt. He would have 
much rather worn blue jeans 
{which are certainly the most 
durable pants you can buy) at 
work, but he wanted to eat in 
the cafeteria without taking a 
half hour of work time to 
shower and change before 
lunch. There are many people 
who are inconvenienced by the 

that foreign king. I was sure 
not going to miss the opportu- 
nity of playing host to a kingi 

Funny thing, but the king 
never did come on that Christ- 
mas Eve. Or did he?

understanding of the meaning 
of Christmas, begin one week

dogmatic rime lines. 

Some might suggest that the 
dogmatism is related to limi- 
ted space in the student 
handbook. However, 1 seri- 
ously doubt that a handbook 
which includes a lengthy dis- 
cussion of the school's policy 
concerning students who 
desire a sex transformation is 
not a handbook which is 
hurting for space.

last week in March. 

There are five roles for men, 
and five speaking roles for 
women (one black). There are 
also six smaller female roles 

for actresses that can fit the

Henriksen to Exhibit 
Abstract Paintings 


The Artist Adi 
and the art department of 
Southern Missionary College 
are presenting an exhibition of 
paintings by Jorgen Henrik- 
sen in the McKee Library 
January 18 through February 

Henriksen is presently an 
associate professor at the 
Massachusetts College of Art. 
He received a B.A. from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana 
and an M.A. from Hunter 
College of the City University 
of New York. 

The exhibition begins with 
two watercolors done in the 

mid-1960's in a realist man- 
ner. In 1968, Henriksen 
turned his interest to abstrac- 
tion. Most of the paintings in 
the exhibition show an evolu- 
tion in his approach to the 
abstract image. 

In the abstract oil and acrylic 
paintings one can find a range 
of techniques that Henriksen 
has used or invented to pro- 
vide the means necessary for 
the making of his unique 
painting compositions. 

A reception will be held on 
Sunday. February 18, during 3 
and 5 p.m. The artist will be 
in attendance at that time. 

Historical Saga "Roots" to be 
Shown in Three Part Series 

Tricia imith 

The Artist Adventure Film 
Series will be presenting the 
historical saga "ROOTS" 
based on the best-seller by 
Alex Haley. The three part 
series, each three and a half 
hours long, will be held at 
7p.m. in the P.E. Center 
on January 18, 19, and 25. 

Before beginning his search 
for his heritage, Mr. Haley 
worked as a free-lance writer 
for national magazines. He 
became interested in his his- 
tory in the mid-1960's and 
began a twelve-year half-mil- 
lion mile search for his roots. 
With the help of a noted 
linguist, Haley was able to 
identity the few words passed 
down as Mandinkan from the 
Gambion region of West Afri- 
ca. ^ After many years of 
lecturing, research, writing, 
and traveling, Haley saw the 
publication of his book 

The first person he could 
remember hearing about was 
an African named "Kin-tay" 
who, after marrying the house 
cook, began the lineage of 
black Americans who would 
relate the stories by mouth 
and one of which would frans- 
cribe the family history for all 
Americans. The story in- 
cludes characters such as Kiz- 
zy, Kintes daughter, "Chic-

Destiny Plans Fresh 
Start With Auditions 

Frank Roman 

Destiny, the Christian drama 
group here at Southern Mis- 
sionary College is planning a 
fresh new start this semester. 
Once again the doors are wide 
open for consecrated actors 
and actresses who are willing 
to devote their time and talent 
for the service of the Lord. 

Destiny emerged from the 
Campus Ministries Depart- 
ment this past semester as an 
evangelistic outreach. Their 
plan was to apply dramatic 
interpretation to sacred 
themes while developing a 
closer relationship to others 
and God. 

the auditions. Those willing to 
volunteer their lime and dedi- 
cate themselves to the spirit- 
ual growth of the group are 
welcomed to tryout this Jan- 
uary 21 and 22. The nights to 
audition are to be separated: 



The response to the auditions 
of first semester strengthened 
the belief that within the SDA 
schools there is a definite 
desire for drama. 

This semester, we hope to 
have an even better reaction to

Once upon a time there was this educational institution 
of higher Christian standards. The make up of this 
institution was students, teachers, and administrators. 

One day some students at this institution decided to aslt 
the policy makers of the institution to change the rule 
stating that no one could wear Pink polka-dot shoes to 
classes. The rationale for the change was that there really 
wasn't anything wrong with Pink polka-dot shoes, even 
though many in the past and present haye seen them as 
being in poor taste. After all, just because they're Pink 
and have polka-dots doesn't make them bad. 

Some teachers and administrators agreed that there 
really wasn't anything wrong with Pink polka-dot shoes, 
but everyone agreed that all shoes, whether Pink with 
polka-dots or not, that had holes in them should never be 
worn. This they agreed was due to the possibility of injury 
and/or infection. 

Some of the policy makers met and discussed it, and 
decided to send it to a higher body for further 

The students still wear Pink polka-dot shoes, even 
though they're not supposed to.

Dear Editor, 

At the moment, Marty and I 
are sitting here just a few feet 
from the ocean. The wind is 
blowing and the waves are 
crashing, and we're sur- 
rounded by palm trees. 

This has been the most de- 
Hghtful tropical day we've 
enjoyed thus far. 

! am teaching in room three 
this year which is made up of 
28 energetic second and third 
graders. To me, when I think 
of a teacher, i picture a nice 
classroom with all the kids 
working diligently. This is our 
ideal still, but we have found 
some real hurdles to bringing 
this about. 

When I saw the room that 
was to be my classroom, I had 
to laugh. It was a room, but 
that was it! There were four 
walls, but even the walls only 
had the outside sheets up. 
We{all of the student mission- 
aries) pitched in and worked 
furiously for a week or so 
building over 100 new desks 
and chairs, making chalk- 
boards, building cupboards, 
and bookshelves. 

The following week was 
then spent doing some prac- 
tice teaching and also trying to 
prepare for the upcoming 
school year. How do you teach 
children that are in grades two 
and three with an age span of 
seven to eleven years of age 
when they don't have a single 
book? This is the question that 
I still ask myself every mor- 
ning about 8 a.m. Anyone with 
some great ideas please send 
to P.O. Box 30, Majuro.

If you think you get a lot of 
rain in CoUegedale, you 
should live here. We get about 
150 inches per year and yet 
ironically we're the ones with 
a water shortage. 

Our water is scheduled for 
two hours a day. One hour in 
the morning and one in the 
evening. During these two 
hours we try to do our wash- 
ing, cooking, showering and 
collecting of water in buckets 
to get us through till the next 
water hours. We collect our 
water off our roofs and it is 
stored in a 7,000 gallon hold- 
ing tank. This tank provifdes 
water for the 20 members here 
on the compound as well as for 
drinking water for the 400 
students attending our ele- 
mentary and high schools. 

So. when we take our sho- 
wers, it's a really "fun time." 
First of all, we go out to a little 
wooden three by three build- 

ing that is just sitting out on 
the school grounds. We get a 
nice breeze blowing through 
all the time from the ocean. 
That wouldn't be so bad, 
except our water is always 
COLDl Due to conservation, 
this is our typical shower 
routine: l)Tum water on just 
long enough to get wet. 
2) Sing so that you won't yell 
when shock of water hits. 3) 
Turn water off. 4)Lather up 
with slightly dampened wash- 
cloth. 5) Turn water on just 
enough to rinse off. And the 
really fun part is that every 
once in a while the water gets 
tu^rned off right in the middle 
of your shower. 
I have truly loved every 

mmute here on Majuro. 1 wish 
time and space would allow fo! 
me to tell you all how wonder 
ful this learning experience 
has been. It is a lot of worl 
and at times 1 miss the 
luxuries of a nice meal at Taco 
Bell, a warm bath, and beine 
able to flush the toilet, but the 
rewards are so great thai 1 
wish each one of you could 
share with us the joys that 
.have come from being a

We miss you and ask that 
you remember us and our

Jeans letter rebuttled 

Dear Editor, 

In the last issue of the 
Southern Accent, a transfer 
student from Walla Walla 
College rekindled the peren- 
nial blue jean controversy. 

From 1974-77 blue jeans 
were allowed as classroom 
attire for men. A significant 
number abused the jeans rule 
so that the majority of the 
faculty felt that the overall 
appearance was less than 

Many years ago, blue 
jeans were predominantly 
used as work pants. Today's 
jeans come in a variety of 
types and styles. There is a 
pair designed for almost every 
occasion. There are rugged 
work jeans, worn faded knock- 
around jeans, neat (and ex- 
pensive) designer jeans, and 
even jean suits that would go 
relatively unnoticed in church. 
Jeans designed for one occa- 
sion may not be suitable for 

There is no doubt that jeans 
are strong and durable. This is 
being proven by the amounts 
stuffed into them. If students 
would wear the appropriate 
jeans, for the appropriate 

size, probably most of the 
faculty would be in favor of 
allowing them again. Hoh' 
ever, in all probability slU' 
dents would abuse the privi' 
lege and were inappropriate 
jeans. The faculty would be 
asked not ^ to say anything 
about the jeans unless thej 
were "inappropriate". ' 
a much more difficult 
ment to make than the current 
decision. The quality of dress 
would deteriorate and 
students as a group would not 
look as sharp as they currenllj 

The Walla Walla studenl 
related his experience of 
wearing blue jeans and gel- 
ting a 4.0 average while si 
Walla Walla last year. This 
year he does not wear blut 
jeans and his GFA droppe^ 
almost one letter grade. J 
would, of course, be in favor J 
allowing blue jeans if we miilJ 
get the kind sold at ".

The College According to Art Jordan- 



nightmare is over. After 
seventeen long and grueling 
days of negotiations, Art Jor- 
dan, It, of Southern Mission- 
ary College has finally consen- 
ted to turn over his crystal ball 
to federal officials. The tiring 
ordeal, which had seemed to 
come to a standstill, came to 
an abrupt end at approxi- 
mately 2:53 this morning 
(EST). As one high ranking 
official ,who asked not to be 
identified ^put it, "We had 
tried everything. We bribed 
him, we threatened him, and 
finally we beat the tar out of 
him. The lousy (unprintable) 
just would not crack!" 

Mr. Jordan finally gave in 
when a bright young F.B.I. 
agent threatened to cram the 
entire C.K. menu down the 
vicitim's throat. The highly 
cherished and much publi- 
cized crystal ball is scheduled 
to be moved from Tordan's 

Talge Hall room to Washing- 
ton some time next week. The 
State Department warns any 
would-be kidnappers that the 
ball will be carried in a heavily 
guarded armored truck. Every 
precaution will be taken for a 
safe journey to the Capitol. 

The prophetic crystal's first 
assignment in government 
service will most likely be to 
reveal the final result of the 
now fourteen month old hos- 
tage crisis. 

Arthur Jordan, the columnist 
who almost refused to sell out, 
made his first public appear- 
ance today since his long 
standout with U.S. Govern- 
ment officials. The heavily 
bandaged Jordan seemed in 
good spirits and commented 
that his period of recovery in 
the Swiss Alps is progressing 
as well as can be expected. 
Mr. Jordan came out of seclu- 
sion long enough to be inter- 
viewed by CDS's Dan Rather- 


) SMC Symphony 

not, of the popular news show 
"60 Seconds". The two met 
in private for several hours 
during which time Jordan 
gave Rathemot a list of predic- 
tions for 1981 which he claims 
came straight from the now 
immortalized crystal ball. Mr. 
Rathemot permitted local re- 
porters to look at the list and 
take some notes. Items on the 
list ranged everywhere from a 
prediction that '81 would be 
the year that CoIIegedale ap- 
plies for statehood; to a war- 
ning that trips to the SMC 
salad bar could start costing 
over 1 .00 Apparently Mr. 
Jordan felt that the salad bar 
would still be a bargain , 
however, since he expects the 
new 1980-81 school catalog to 
read, "A student getting a 
nutritionally adequate diet by 
eating all meals at the cafeter- 
ia should expect to pay ap- 
proxiamatley 43.00 per day." 
Another item on the predic- 
tion list stated that this would 
be the year when a group of 
student terrorists, led by an 
enraged professor, would at- 
tack and burn down the Ool- 
tewah-ColIegedale Telephone 

Company. The list contained 
some bad news too. 
Apparently the crystal ball 
feels that this year will see 
E.O. Grundset announcing his 
decision to donate his body to 



bitten by a cobra. Mr. 
Rathemot was quick to ex- 
plain, much to the relief of the 
scientific community, that 
Jordan didn't feel the cobra 
would dare challenge "Ye ole 

There also was a bit of advice 
on the future list. Students at 
SMC are advised to purchase 
canoes as means of transpor- 
tation during the coming mon- 
soon rains. Jordan apparently, 
didn't think there should bg 
over concern since he felt that 
those students who can't 
afford canoes will be able to 
use the rowboat taxi service 
sponsored by campus secur- 

He also felt that campus 
security would provide a wa- 
tenvay traffic cop {we wonder 
who will get the job). 

too many rumors floating a- 
round about things the crystal 
ball might have said but 
actually didn't. It did not, for 
instance, say anything about 
the members of the SMC 
senior class getting a letter of 
congratulations from Ayatol- 
lah Khomeni this May. it also 
appears that Mr. Jordan was 
very displeased with the wild 
rumor that the C.K. was 
thinking of becoming a high- 
class Chinese restaurant. 

Just before bemg escorted 
back to his mountain retreat. 
Art Jordan stopped long 
enough to answer r question 
about his future plans by 
saying, "I hope to return to 
SMC just as soon as I have 
completely recovered." And 
then, as tears came to his 
eyes, he added, "You can't 
understand the tremendous 
strain it's been on me having 
to live in a mountain cottage 
and thinking about all'Hte

How does SMC stack up with other Adventist colleges 
when It comes to cost? "me Southern Accent did some 
research and came up with some comparative data. Out or 
the other eight col leges, SMC was only nrore expensive than 
one of the colleges, Oakwood.

It should be noted that at SAC, the food is on a flat rate 
board, as it is at Oakwood and Andrews. CUC has the flat 
food rate, but does not provide telephones, or laundry 
service. Union offers no phone sen/ice, and you must pay 
$90 extra for phone privileges at La Sierra. 

Union, PUC, AUC, and SMC all have an a la carte food 
program and an average of $1 ,075 per year has been used 
for the comparison. SMC provides Student Insurance 
automatically ($50 to $90 per year wtiich is not included in 
most other colleges.)

.View from the Stands 

Bt*WliaU teams have been 
chosen for Intramurals. Tom 
The Turk rushed his pre- 
dictions out from Las Vegas" 

Double AA 
Schultz-Nafie 9-3 

■Brai Schultz leads this team 
and is considered the most 
dominating force in the 
league. This team gambled on 
the talents of new student 
Robert Bovell. Bovell seems 
very capable of living up to his 
expectations. He is a versatile 
and unselfish player. 

John O'Brien adds strong 
board support, Dave West and 
Jeff Lingerfelt will be counted 
on for outside scoring. This 
team has excellent quickness 
but may lack in the ability to 
score consistantly from out- 

Price-Botimer 8-4 

Doug Price, 1980 Rees 
Series M.V.P., leads this very 
strong unit. This team has the 
best inside-outside balance 
with Price on the inside and 
David Botimer on the outside. 
Mickey Abbot will compliment 
this team with his solid overall 
abilities. Verle Thompson and 
Bob Leonard will round out 
what should be a very large 
starting five. This squad lacks 
overall team speed but if they 
work together this combina- 
tion could be 

Prusia-Creamer 6-6 

Rick Pnisia, 1980 Double 
AA league M.V.P. must once 
again bring his talents to the 
gym for this team to go. Rick 
has the best shot of all the big 
men in the league. Alvin 
Franklin is a highly talented 
freshmen and must produce 
immediately so his team wUl 
not collapse on Prusia. Dick , 
Creamer and Kevin Siver will 
do the outside scoring. 
Overall scoring and re- 
bounding may be this teams 

Rathbun-Harriston 5-7 

Paul Rathbun leads a team 
with a lot of question marks. 
Rathbun is the best scorer in 
the league when he is hot. 
Derrick Hartison is the big 
question mark. Nobody really 
knows how good this big guy 
is. Probably this team will go 
as Derrick goes. Dean Mad- 
dock, Wayne Johnson and 
Byron Rouse will round out a 
relatively short team. This 
team is definitely the dark 
horse and could knock off 
anybody at any time. 

Creamer-Ware 4-8 

This team is led by the best 
guard in school, David 
Creamer. David also has 
excellent leadership abilities. 
These abilities will be severly 
tested this year. Stuart Ware 
is still improving and will 
nrovide most of the inside 

punch. Unlike most teams 
this team will be primarily 
oriented to the running game 
and the outside game. Marty 
Wold will compliment 
Creamer at guard. Brad 
Durby and Reno Thompson 
will give this team a rugged 
back line. 

gA League 

For A League, you will have 
to excuse me for my ignorance 
in not knowing quite as much 
about the players in this 
league as in AA. I have put 
together some predictions so 
you can prove just how great 
my ignorance is. 


This team appears to me to 
be the strongest team and the 
one that will come out on top. 
The combined talent of Al 
Cain, Sam Hutchins, and 
Steve Aviles, along with the 
height of Keith Tucker and 
Dariel Starkey make this a 
well-rounded team. 


This team welcomes the 
presence of new comer Dear 
Qualley and , also, the return 
of Dr. Dualn. Qualley adds 
size and an inside scoring 
threat, while Dulan's quick- 
ness adds to the all-around 
play of the team. Coach 
Jaecks will be called on for any 
outside shots outside 25 feet 
as he as the long range touch.

A team that has a lot of 
talent and its this one that 
could spoil me prediction and 
become the team to be reck- 
oned with. Brian Aalborg and 
Jesse Mock are the two main- 
stays of this team and they will 
be backed up be the hustle of 
Ron Shaffer, Denny Nooner 
and Greg Culpepper. 

These team appear to be the 
three strongest teams. I'll 
pick Rouse and Jansen as 
possible dark horses. As for 
the other teams you have the 
chance to make me eat my pad 
and pencil by finishing as one 
of the top three. Good luck to 
B League 

In B League I will once 
again have to apologiie for not 
knowing as much about the 

talent of the playe: 


Uifi.5\^rn union 

I do know enough about the 
talent to confidently predict 
this team as the team which 
will win the league. Jeff 
Kuhlman and Bucky Knecht 
are the two main players that 
will make this team click, 
However, they will have to 
control Jeff Raibles kindness 
of scoring points for the other 
team, in their first game he 
scored two for the opposition. 

As far as the other teams 
go, I just can't say who is 
stronger. Perhaps I'll be 
suprised and someone will 
finish in first ahead of shaw. 
but I don't think so. Good luck 
to all the players.

Introspect: Wisdom from Kings & Wisenwti 

How could I be so fortu- 
nate? This type of thing just 
didn't happen to me very 
often. Ever since August when 
I had dropped her off at SMC, 
I had really missed that girl I 
met last summer. The timingi 
The circumstances and at- 
mosphere surrounding the 
first real meeting and com- 
munication with her were so 
perfect. We both seemed to be 
precisely what the other had 
been needing and searching 
for so long. And now, once 
again everything had fallen 
into place, and I would be able 
to make a weekend trip to see 

I hurriedly packed my suit- 
case, jumped in my car, and 
headed for SMC and the 
faculty home she was staying 
in because of the excess of 
students in the dorm. 

Along the way, I began 
thinking of something very 
special that I could get for her. 
It had to be something that 
would really lift her spirits and 
make her happy all the next 
week, for I would only be able 
to stay from Friday evening 
until Saturday evening. 

Just before I got to College- 
dale, I stopped and picked out 
the most lovely flowering 

plant I could find. I could 
hardly wait to present it to ' 
her. I decided to give it to her 
just before 1 left so that it 
would tend to counter my 
departure, and give her some- 
thing to be really happy about 
after I was gone. 

The closer I got the more 
excited I became. I tried to 
visualize walking up to the 
front door, her reception of 
me, and the warm flood of 
good feelings and happiness. 

At last 1 drove up to her 
house. My heart was doing 
funny things, and I searched 
the windows half expecting to 
see someone eagerly peering 
from behind the draperies. 
But there was no one. I walked 
toward the front door con- 
stantly anticipating some sort 
of eager welcome. I rang the 
doorbell. After several rings, 
the door was opened by Mr. 
and Mrs. Faculty's little boy. 
He said everyone was very 
busy at the moment (even 
though it was nearly sundown 
and Sabbath). 

I stepped in and sat down. 
Perhaps fifteen minutes later 
she dashed down the hall, 
stuck her head full of curlers 
around the door and said she 
was sorry that everything was

would see me in a little 
while-make myself comfort- 

The family didn't make it to 
family sundown worship at the 
beginning of the Sabbath. It 
seemed that all were just too 
involved with last minute pre- 
parations. Finally, she and I 
got a few minutes together 
later on in the evening after 
she and Mrs. Faculty finished 
planning the next day's meals, 
the young son's "church 
toys" had been found, and a 
merry romp through the house 
with the family's non-TV en- 
tertainment, a domesticated 
chimpanzee was finished. She 
spoke mainly of school, the 
latest fashions, and "com- 
munity news." 

Sabbath morning I got up 
early and had a nice long 
conversation with my Father. 
The rest of the household 
arose much later, barely in 
time for church (we missed 
Sabbath School). The little boy 
complained all through church 
because of his empty stomach, 
a result of missing breakfast. 
This put Mrs. Faculty in a bad 
mood, so after lunch my friend 
suggested that we escape into 
nature at a nearby lake. Great, 
I thought, maybe now we'll 
get some time alone to share 
with each other our thoughts 
and lives. 

For some reason, she felt 
that the afternoon just would 
not be fulfilling unless we 
invited a group of her friends 
along. We all piled into a 
couple of cars rolled all the 
windows down, and roared off 
towards "nature," the beach 
out at Chickamauga Dam. I 
listened to their shrieks of

radio playing KIDC 102 at a 
lower "Sabbath level.'' 

We squealed into the park- 
ing lot at the Dam and cruised 
around a bit to see who was 
there, etc. We parked, and 
strolled towards the scantily 
clothed mob sprawled all over 
the beach. Picking our way 
through the crowd to a rather 
open spot, we noticed many 
other SMC kids on the beach 
with radios blaring WFLI and 
WGOW towards the Sabbath 
sun. All decided that the most 
worthwhile thing to do was to 
catch a few rays, so they all 
reclined onto their COORS 
and BUDWEISER beach 
towels. The wafting cigarette 
smoke and scent of liquor 
made me nauseated, and I 
suggested to my friend that 
we take a walk up the lake. 
She was too tired. I left the 
group and crowd and found 
my way up the lakeline to a 
little peace and serenity.

There I contacted Father once 
again and was comforted after 
feeling anguished over what I 
had just been through. A few 
hours later I returned just as 
they all awoke. The sun was 
quickly setting, and as I 
approached, I overheard her^ 
and her friends discussing 
what they would do after I left 
that evening. 

After we sped back to the 
house where she was staying, 
I prepared to go. As she led 
me to my car I really wondered 
if she had wanted me to come. 
I had driven several miles 
when I looked over in the 
other floorboard and saw my 
gift. I had forgotten to give it 
to her. Then I realized that she 
probably wouldn't have 
wanted it anyway, so I drove 
on towards my hone.

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/January 22,1981 


A question was posed to me that I felt was food tor 
thought, "Where is a RA when you need one?" Now, we 
all know where they are at 10:30 p.m. (they know where we 
all are as well), we also know where they are when we are 
poppingpopcorn in the room, or playing the stereo a touch 
too vigoriously. They seem to appear when the filter has 
been neglected, you're running late for Sabbath School, or 
pounding cement naUs in the wall. But what about those 
rare times when, for reasons beyond your control or 
course, you are locked out of the room? 

After feverishly knocking on every RA's door for six 
floors, to no avail, a desperate attempt is made at the front 
desk, no help there as they are "not allowed." Nearing 
tears as you think about the class, date, meeting worship, 
basketball game, etc., you are missing, you head out to 
find your roommate who is at any one of 93 places. 

"Where is a RA when you need one?" Why, at a class, 
date, meeting, worship, basketball game, etc., of course 
(with apologies to faithful RAs).

Dear Editor, 

Last year about this time, 1 
was looking through the S.M. 
call book and came across an 
opening for teaching in a 
school named Majuro Elemen- 
tary School. It also said that 
this school was in the Guam- 
Micronesia Mission which 
sounded like a nice place to 
teach. Knowing very little 
about the Pacific Islands, I 
thought that the school was on 
the island of Guam, because it 
was in the Guam-Micronesia 
Mission. It never dawned on 
me or Karen that there was a 
tiny island called Majuro. As 
crazy as it may seem both of 
us ended up being cleared by 
the G.C. to go as SM's to an 
island named Majuro. and yet 
we still find out that we were 
not going to Guam, but to this 
tiny atoll seven degrees north 
of the equator, which is not 
even on most maps, we just 
about died. If you happen to 
look up Majuro in the world 
atlas, you may wonder if there 
really is any land there at all. I 
know I sure did. 

If you've never heard of 
Majuro, don't feel stupid. 
From the air it looks like a 
long, skinny curled-up noodle, 
and when we were landing we 
wondered if the "noodle" was 
wide enough to land on. 
There's just not much to this 
island. Actually the island is 
30 miles long and only one- 
half mile across at the widest 
point. The highest natural 
point is only 20 feet which we 
jokingly call Mt. Majuro. 
Although there are no moun- 
taineering challenges here, I 
have climbed everything from 
coconut trees to a 150 foot 
water tower, the latter of 
which I was almost arrested 

The weather here is practi- 
cally the same year round. The 
highest recorded temperature 
is 91 degrees and the lowest is 
69 degrees. Sounds rough, 
doesn't it? We'll be thinking 
of all you people back at SMC 
when it's 33 degrees and 
sleeting outside and we're 
out in the warm tropical sun. 

Some of the things the 
eleven of us SM's do for fun 
are shelling, snorkeling, and 
SCUBA diving. The coral reef 
is incredibly beautiful and is 
teeming with marine life of 
seeming endless varieties. 
SCUBA diving is especially 
good on the ocean side of the 
atoll where the visibility can 
be 100 to 200 feet. It's almost 
like air at times. Whenever we 
go diving we see a lot of 
white-tipped. black-tipped, 
and gray reef sharks, so we 
always take along a bang stick 
loaded with a .357 magnum 
shell just in case. On our 

doing out here?" But then th 
next day things will go ^^ 

and make It all seem worth f? 
struggle. "^ 

In these last few months 
I ve learned a lot that 1 nevei 
could have learned in school I 
miss all my friends back at 
SMC, but this experience k 
worth the year awav fr 
school. I really have to depeTd 
on the Lord to make it from one 
day to the next and that's good 

for me. Please pray for all of us 
out here. The work is great and 
there are many sould to be 

deepest dive of 130 feet we 
didn't see any sharks, but we 
did see three large spotted 
leopard rays harmlessly cruis- 
ing by. We've also seen sea 
turtles, octopus, squid, flying 
fish, porpoise, and many other 
"various and sundry" marine 
life. It's all very fascinating 
and fun, but we do work out 
here. In fact, we do a lot more 
work than play. 

I'm teaching 28 seventh and 
eighth graders which has to be 
one of the most challenging 
age groups. Teaching is no 
easy job. After a bad day out 
here, I sometimes ask myself, 
"What is the world are you

orical. though not nearly 
publicized, event took place on 
that same day as Arthur 
Fitzgerald Jordan stepped into 
a government post office and 
mailed Mr. Reagan the fol- 
lowing letter: 
: Ronn' 

how expensive homes 
these days. You're not going to 
believe this, but someone told 
me they heard you had found a 
nice little place and that the 
government is going to pay the 
rent for you. I can picture you 
laughing out loud at that one! 
I'm telling you, Ron, people 
are getting crazier these days. 

How are Nancy and the kids? 
I saw a picture of one of the 
youngsters in "Newsweek" 
the other day. My, how they've 
grown! It seems like just 
yesterday when they were out 
in my backyard building a 
"tepee" out of a blanket and 
some kitchen chairs I had lent 
them. They were so cute! 

In case you hadn't heard 
about it, I'm writing a column 
for a college paper this year. 
If s fun, but 1 must admit that I 
miss the good old days when 
we use to spend the day down 
at the lake fishing. I can still 
remember the time when you 
spent two hours trying to reel 
in "the big one", only to fmd 
out that you were hooked on a 
log! You were so mad that you 

I bet you thought I'd never 
answer your last letter. Sorry 
for the delay, but I do 
eventually fmd enough time to 
drop my friends a line. 

1 hear that you found a new 
job. Congratulations. It sure 
beats standing in the unem- 
ployment line, doesn't it? 
Don't ask me how I found out 
about it. Let me just say that 
news has a way of spreading 
until it eventually seems as if 
the whole world is in on the 

This is probably as good of a 
time as any to tell you not to 
worry too much about that loan 
I gave you a few years back. 
Just because you're a working 
man now doesn't mean that 
I'm going to be bugging you 
about a payment. I know in this 
day and age how tough it is to 
make ends meet, so just go forgot you didn't k 

CAREERS Cont. from Centerfold 

Job-humiiig defies quick-success formulas, but most job 
counselors recommend the following steps for almost 
anyone entering the job market: 


Make a list of your greatest skills, with the aid of 
objective testing if necessary. Decide what kind of task you 
most enjoy, drawing from previous experience at work, in 
academic study, hobbies, or recreation. 


With the help of friends, counselors and occupational 
indexes, identify those fields that make best use of your 
skills and interests. Use trade-association magazines and 
other literature to learn as much as possible about those 
fields. Develop contacts - speak with old friends, 
schoolmates, people already employed in the field you wish 
to enter. Gradually, articulate a clear job objective. 


Use directories and contacts to identify all employers in 
your field, whether or not announced vacancies exist. 
Develop a resume that focuses on your job objective and 
skills, not just past employment, and accompany a resume 
with a letter aimed for the job you want. In arranging 
interviews, avoid personnel departments when possible. In 
the interview, stress the link between your skills and the 
task that needs to be performed. Be assertive, 
self-confident, and ask questions. Follow up each interview 
with a letter. 

I and jumped in to try and 
r hook. There's no 
need to thank me again for 
rescuing you that day. 
Remember what I told you? All 
I asked in return was that you 
try and make something of 
yourself some day. I'm sure, if 
you work hard enough at it, you 

I'm still hoping you'll get a 
chance to drop by and see me 
sometime. Just make sure you 
bring a sleeping bag, as I don't 
have one and you'll have to 
sleep on the floor. Nancy could 
come too since I have some 
ft-iends in Thatcher Hall who 

would be glad to have her 
spend the night with them. 

My girlfriend and I have 
been thinking about coming up 
your way someday. Is your new 
home big enough that there 
would be room for us to stay 
with you? Any place would do. 
It doesn't have to be fancy. 

I guess I better close and get 
back to the old grind. If you 
ever need anything, let me 
know. Maybe you'll come up 
for a job promotion sometime 
and I can write your boss a 
letter of recommendation for 

Tell everyone "hello" for 

me. I heard that the Bush 
family decided to move out 
near you, so give them a 
special greeting. Tell George 
that I'm sorry I haven't had 
time to answer his letter yet, 
but that I'll get around to it as 
soon as I have a chance. 

Your friend, 


Remember that young fellow 
who used to mow our lawns for 
us on Sundays? Would you 
believe that he's here teaching

^The Nation's 
Job Prospects 

And so after four years of college, it is time for all students (of all sizes) to go forth 
and work in the Real World. Because of this, we have decided to give you a few tacts 
about the job market here and across the country, hints on how to get them, and 

" The information below applies to EVERYONE, not just seniors. After all, we are 
in college to better ourselves and prepare for the future and the jobs that it has to 

Middle West 

The outlook in the Southeast continues to be promising 
"By all accounts, we have had a good and steady growth of 
employment in the region," said E. Evan Bronson, director 
of intergovernmental affairs of the Southern Growth 
Policies Board, an economic-research organization in 
Raleigh, NC "And in the 1980's expect the pattern to 
continue, perhaps not as rapidly as in the 1970-s but still 
very well by national standards." 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics office in 
Atlanta, which keeps records for Alabama, Florida, 
Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South 
Carolina, and Tennessee, the fastest-growing sectors are 
and will be services and government. Labor experts note 
that industry continues to move to the Southeast: 
electronics into south Florida, high technology to Georgia, 
and North Carolina and rubber, steel and manufacturing to 
all the states. 

Florida, with a population of about nine million, the 
largest and fastest-growing state in the region, accounts for 
much of the job gains. In the last 12 months, employment in 
electronics grew by 25 per cent, to about 45,000 people. 
Westinghouse, General Electric, Rolls-Royce, and West- 
ern Electric have recently announced plans to build plants 
in Florida. 

Middle Atlantic 

Throttled by high energy costs and wounded by 
recession, manufacturing in the Middle Atlantic region 
faces an uncertain future. Services and trade are slack, 
with mild hopes if the overall economy improves. 
Construction is off as mortgage rates rise again. Only in the 
handling of money — banking it, insuring and litigating 
with it and gambling it — does the market show real 

Atlantic City gambling is — and should remain the 
region's major boom industry. New Jersey's Office of 
Labor Market Information estimates that this summer 
15,400 people were directly employed in this field — one 
that didn't exist four years ago. 

Of the Middle Atlantic states, Pennsylvania has suffered 
most from the recession, with unemployment at 9.3 per 
cent in July. The numbers reflect the state's dependence 
on the crippled steel and auto industries. 
Maryland's heaviest unemployment is in the manufactur- 
ing areas of Baltimore and the western part of the state. 
Delaware and New Jersey have also been hurt by their 
reliance on manufacturing in general and on chemicals in 

In New York State, with a more balanced economy, 
unemployment rose only three-tenths of 1 per cent in the 
last year, the region's best performance. 

Finance, insurance, real estate and services reported 
employment gains last year despite the recession. 
"Whenever we have a new building. 1 see law firms taking 
floors and hiring people," said M. Walter D'Alessio. 
executive vice-president of the Philadelphia Industrial 
Development Corporation. 

Dr. F. Gerard Adams, a University of Pennsylvania 
economist who is consultant to Wharton Econometric 
Forecasting Associates, predicted that over the longer run 
the energy crunch that has so damaged the area will help it 
rebound. Coal should pick up strongly within five years, he 
said, and abondoned plants would be ideal for synthethic- 
fuel facilities. 

The outlook in the Middle West's largest population 
concentration, around Chicago, Is bleaker than a year ago, 
but there are upbeat sectors. In Chicago, a substantial 
decline in manufacturing and weakness in retail-trade and 
residential construction have been accompanied by 
shrunken opportunities in steel and auto-related industries 

An office boom is under way in Chicago. Areas enjoying 
growth include finance, transportation, law, communica- 
tion services and computer services. Accountants and 
executive secretaries can practically name their price. 
Nonresidential construction is extremely strong in Chicago 
International banking and futures trading are still strong. 
Shortages still occur in the medical, clerical and financial 
areas. A boom in hotel building has led to increasing job 
opportunities in low-wage hotel occupations. 

Women are moving into hotel operations, advertising 
and public relations and medicine, with fewer advancing in 
construction and manufacturing. More men are choosing 
office and health-services jobs over factory work. 

Minneapolis has strong opportunities, especially in the 
computer field. Milwaukee has a very healthy economy, 
with executive and managerial jobs. Cincinnati and 
Milwaukee are moving into robotics. Western Michigan is 
growing, with towns such as Lansing and Kalamazoo 
offering many relatively low-paying jobs. 


The Southwest has weathered the economic storms of the 
last year well, and most of its growth is related to oil and 
natural gas. John W. Shcroeder, vice president and 
partner in charge of the Dallas office of William H. Clark 
Associates, said that the petroleum industry's personnel 
shortage was forcing the use of nontraditional methods,

Banking . manufacturing and distribution, in both Dallas 
and Houston, are expected to expand within the next year. 
The Houston-area job market has grown so much that 
two-year-old Texas Employment Commission projections 
for 1985 have already been surpassed. John Cox. who 
handles economics and research for the commission in 
Houston, sees no letup in employment growth in the 
Southwest for several years at least. The most frequently 
listed jobs are now for nurses, clerical help and retail sales. 

Mr. Schroeder predicted that the electronics industry 
would be moving branches out of California to the 
Southwest, especially Dallas. All across the Southwest, 
computer programmers and systems analysts are expected 
to be in heavier demand than elsewhere in the nation. The 
region will also be a job mecca for people with two-year 
technical school educations. 

Sharon Cohany, research analyst for the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics, sees the most rapid growth of jobs in 
engineering, the health-services area, accounting and 
related fields and all clerical ?

Making Career 

For those in college who are facing career decision, here 
is a checklist of things to do, compiled from the advice of 
career counselors from across the country. 

I Begin career homework early. Freshman year Is not too 
soon to make your first visit to the Testing and Counseling 
Office. The staff there have vocational tests or other 
methods for self-analysis on hand. In addition, they may be 
able to help you plan your time out of class in order to take 
advantage of opportunities (part-time jobs, internships, 
on-campus workshops, etc.) that may increase your 

Z Learn as much as you can about jobs within the 
professionCs) you think you might want to enter. Ask for 
names of alumni who are in the field. Write to them and ask 
them how they got started and what specifically it is that 
they do. 

O Don't be completely discouraged by reports of lack of 
jobs in an area that you really want to enter. It may take 
more work and a longer time, but college placement officers 
unanimously agree that if you want the Job badly enough, 
have planned your college years well and are willing to be 
flexible you can probably find work. This is one place where 
eariy planning can really pay off. 

4 Be patient. Start the actual job-finding process early in 
your senior year. Instructors can help you with resume 
writing and interview techniques. Take advantage of these 

5 Don't restrict yourself geographically. There are areas of 
the country that have been more hard hit by the recession 
than others. Though there are opportunities everywhere, it 
is not wise to assume that the job of your dreams is to be 
found only in a major urban area such as New York or Los

View from the Stands 

The basketball season here 
at SMC has jumped off to a 
great start. Only one week has 
past but in that one week we 
have witnessed some very 
exciting games. The overall 
balance in each of the leagues 
has led to some very close 
games. There is only one 
league that has a single team in 
first place and in that league 
six teams are tied for second 
just one game back. If this first 
week is any indication of what 
is to come in the future, we can 

all look forward to a very 
exciting and enjoyable basket- 

league highlights; 



Dlts^t(g IFkirm 


Out of the 
league games played so far, 4 
of them have ended with 1 
point margins. Two of the 
games have gone into over- 
time, one ending in a 3 point 
difference and the other a 1 
point difference. The biggest 
winning margin has been 7 
points, so with this type of 
balance it promises to be close 
in "AA" league. 

The teams of Rick Prusia and 
Buck Schultz have tied for the 
lead in this league with 2-1 
records. Both of these big men 
have been key players for their 
teams with co-captain Dick 
Craemer helping Prusia's 
team and newcomver Robert 
for Schultz' s team . Stuart 
e's team is at 1-1 and has 
been led by an all around 
hustling team effort. Ware and 
Brad Durby have been the 
main contributors in their 
teams games. Doug Price's 

team has suffered two 1 pomt 
defeats and are at 1-2. Pnce 
has been carrying the teams 
scoring load for the past two 
games with 27 points in neach 
games with 27 points in each 
game. Paul Rathbun's team 
got off to a slow start with two 
losses but has since picked up a 
victory. It was Rathbun's hot 
shooting that brought this 
team their first win as he shot 
14 of 22 from the field, 8 for 11 
in the second half. 


"A" league shows Cain and 
Rouse on top with 2-0 records 
followed closely by faculty at 
1-0. Several teams are just one 
game back with ,500 1-1 

Al Cain's team appears to be 
very strong as they picked up 
two solid victories. Sam 
Hutchins has been Cain's 
leading scorer but their main 
asset is their balanced attack. 

Gary Rouse's team came up 
with a key victory over Cul- 
pepper to push his team into a 
tie for first. Strong rebounding 
and some good shooting from 
Tim Rushing has been this 
teams strong points. 

The faculty haven't had a 
chance to play their second 
game yet but appear to be a 
team that will have to be 
reckoned with. They were led 
by Dean Qualley in their first 
game as he netted 21 big ones. 

Paul Jansen's and Tedd 
Webster's teams are both at 
.500 just 1 game behind the 

As predicted, Shaw's team 
have found themselves all 
alone in first place with a 2-0 
record. They have picked up 
two impressive victories with 
Jeff Kuhlman and Bucky 
Knecht leading the way. 

The thing to be pointed out 
in this league is that six teams 
are tied for second just 1 game 
behind the leader. If someone 
can knock off Shaw, this league 
will see several teams tied for 


After the first week four 
teams remain undefeated and 
tied for first with 2-0 records. 

Dortch has picked up two 

solid wins with Tamara and 
Robin Dortch being the key 
players on this team. Velvet 
McQuistan and Jenny give this 
team some height and have 
been doing a good job 

Kiture has won both games 
by big margins scoring a lot ofi 
their points on fast breaks. 
Andrea Kiture and Gloria 
Florence are the two big play 
makers for this team. Dawn 
Rongus adds some all around 
ability to this team too. 

Bishop has the strongest 
center in the league plus good 
all around talent. With this 

combination they will prove to 
be tough to stop. Their first two 
wins came easy with Debbie 
Morgan doing most of thier 
scoring. Bishop and host are 
the teams outside scoring 

Richards also has put two up 
in the win column with no 
loses. This team realies heavily 
on the scoring of Jenny 
Laurencell. Nancy Richards 
directs the offense for this 

The other teams in the 
league will have to beat these 
top four if they wish to get into

Introspect: Wisdom 

January 22,1981/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

from Kings & Wiseman! 

{Your religious editors re- 
cently discovered the follow- 
ing translation from the June 
4. B.C. 2001 Shinar Daily 
Journal. It appears to b • the 
comments of ce Lain learned 
men concerning the preaching 
of a man named Noah. We 
thought it contained some 
illuminating points. With the 
prayer that it speaks to con- 
temporary life, we have de- 
cided to reprint the text of the 
translation here in The South- 
ern Accent. 

J.V. Jabal. Ph. D., profes- 
sor of religion at the Univer- 
sity of the Euphrates- I would 
like to direct my comments 
concerning this "water and 
brimstone" message to a few 
doctrinal inaccuracies which 
are exposed in Noah's preach- 
ing. First of all, I would like to 
note that Noah has labelled 
the actions of this generation 
"immoral" and "wicked". 1 
truly believe that such value 
judgements are uncalled for, 
as well as unchristian. Mr. 
Noah surely must understand 
that times have changed. 
Decisions as to whether an 
action is right or wrong are not 
as clear as Noah would make 
them. There are no such 
black-and-white matters. 
Times have changed since 
doing right was as simple as 
deciding if one should eat 
from a certain tree in the 
middle of a garden. Mr. Noah 
must realize this fact before he 
will receive any kind of a 

Secondly, Noah is also stat- 
ing that whoever does not 
come into his huge wooden 
contraption will be destroyed 
by God. Yet, Noah also 
speaks of a God of love. There 
are two errors 1 would point 
out in this reasoning. I would 
first note the paradox of 
Noah's God of love who also 
destroys. Noah is sadly 

mistaken. He needs to waJce 
up and realize that if God is as 
loving as Noah claims Him to 
be (aifd I believe He is). He 
will never destroy His own 
creatures. Never! The second 
mistake Noah makes is by the 
sheer folly of his proud sinful 
nature. He believes that to be 
saved, one must come on HIS 
boat. "Do it my way!", he 
says. Anyone who is trained 
in theology (obviously Mr. 
Noah is untrained) would 
know that there are many 
ways to be saved. Not only 
does Noah lack Christian love, 
but theologically, he is all wet. 
A.V. Cain, Ph. D., Chairman 
of Meteoroligists at the 
Worid's Weather Bureau- I 
have been asked to write for 
the Shinar Daily Journal con- 
cerning the statements of a 
certain deluded preacher 
named Noah. It has been 
reported to me (the matter 
does not merit my personal 
visit) that this Noah has made 
some rather wild claims. To 
set your minds at ease I will 
respond to these claims. 

First of all, Noah is actually 
saying that water will descend 
from the sky. I have only one 
word in response to this: 
Absurd! This reversal of 
nature's previous patterns has 
never occurred before, and I 
might add, it never will hap- 
pen. I would ask Noah, 
"Where will this water come 
from? Out of thin air?" I 
perceive that Noah has not 
even studied the elementary 
principles of meteorology. 

But, not only is Noah claim- 
ing torrents of water will gush 
from the sky, he is also saying 
this water will engulf the earth 
and destroy everything. This 
lie is unworthy of comment. 
However, 1 would add this; If 
something has never occurred 
in two thousand years, it will 
not happen! It is as simple as 


M.N. Enos, Ph.D., "profes- 
sor of biology at the University 
of Nod-In response to Noah's 
claims that animals will follow 
him into his wooden house, I 
would say, "Absurdl Non- 
sense!" Anything else hardly 
need be said, but for those of 
you who desire an explanation 
of why this could not occur, I 
would direct you to the fear 
with which animals look upon 
man. Since we have began 
killing and eating animals, 
they have gained an obvious 
distrust for man, and these 
feelings of hostility which they

public relations director, par- 
liamentarian, and students for 
various committees. 

Vice-President: This person 
must be willing to work well 
and cooperatively with the 
president. The job involves 
coordinating the activities of 
the Social Activities Commit- 
tee and the Sub-committee for 
Publications and representing 
their interests in the Senate, 
calling and chairing meetings 
of the Executive Cabinet and 
Sub-committee for Publica- 
tion. In the event of the 
president's office being vaca- 
ted, the vice-president serves 
as active president until the 
next election. 

Social Activities; This job is 
very involved with organizing 

have toward us will not change 
even if some two-bit preacher 
says they wUl. Noah is crazy! 

Dr. N. Samech, Clinical 
Psychiatric Counselor at East 
of Eden Hospital- Mr. Noah 
exhibits solid evidence of 
mental derangement. In sup- 
port of this, I would offer these 
two facts. Primarily, Noah is 
embarking on a course where 
no one will follow. If his 
scheme were not so crazy, he 
might fool someone. How- 
ever, such a wild plan as his 

11 not even convince the 

uneducated. He will be lucky 
to deceive his own family into 
following him. 

Then, there is also the 
problem of Noah's obsession 
with his work. He has lived "it, 
breathed it, and worked it, 
day-in and day-out for the last 
one hundred and twenty 
years. Obviously, anyone this 
intense needs mental help. 
Readers, for your comfort, 
please remember this; Noah 
cannot be the only one right. 
It is impossible! 
Editor's Note: And which side 
would you have been on? 

and planning major events like 
banquets, Saturday night acti- 
vities, and Fall Festival Week. 

A person wanting this posi- 
tion should be imaginative, 
original and enthusiastic. 

Student Services Director: 
This job also requires original- 
ity. The student services 
director deals with the devel- 
opment of College Within a 
College, Friday afternoon car- 
toons, and explores new areas 
for student services. 

The Southern Accent Editor: 
This person is responsible for 
the weekly production of The 
Southern Accent, choosing a 
staff, and staying within a 
budget. Journalism experi- 
ence is highly recommended, 
and this job also requires 

many hours per week. 

Southern Memories Editor: 
Experience is helpful for this 
job and the editor should be 
willing to meet deadlines and 
stay within a budget. The job 
includes choosing a staff and 
arranging for senior protraits. 
Originality and layout abilities 
are also beneficial. 

Joker Editor: This person 
must be willing to put a lot of 
time in at the beginning of 
each semester. The editor is 
responsible for the production 
of the Joker, choosing a staff, 
and staying within a budget. 

Any student who is 
interested in becoming in- 
volved in the SA should stop 
by the office and begin plan- 
ning now.

was started by Carter G. 
Woodson in 1926. The purpose 
of the week was to focus on the 
achievements of blacks that 
are not recorded in history 

Normally when you think of 
blacks in American History, 
you think of men. This year, 
however, the first event will be 
"Excerpts of Famous Black 
Women", presented Tuesday 
at chapel. These biographical 
talks will be presented by 
students on women such as 
Coretta Scott King (Martin 
Luther King's wife), Marcia 
Miles, and Harriett Tubman. 

Thursday chapel will be in 
the gym featuring the movie, 
"Martin Luther King, Jr.- 
From Birmingham to 

Friday evenmg vespers will 
be presented by Elder Barry 
Black, chaplain at the United 
States Naval Academy in 
Annapolis, Maryland, He will 
speak on the contributions of 
Martin Luther King to 

America. Elder Black is well- 
noted for his representations of 
Reverand King. He has 
memorized many of his 
speeches, and you will note 
that the voice flectuations, 
pauses, etc., of King are 
reflected in Elder Black. 

Sabbath afternoon at 4 p.m. 
in the academy auditorium, the 
Adventist Forum will discuss, 
"Blacks in the Adventist 
Church." Elder E. E. Cleve- 
land (formally from the Gene- 
ral Conference) and Dr. Gar- 
land Dulan will be members on 
the panel. 

Elder Grant will conclude 
the Sabbath and Black History 
Week with Meditations in the 
church at 6 p.m. 

When asked why he felt 
Black History Week was im- 
portant, Dr. Dulan said. 
"Many blacks, as well as 
whites, only know about what 
has been represented in his- 
tory books, as related to blacks 
contribution-typically, people 
are concerned about slavery. 
We must remember that 
America is only what it is today 
because of what happened in 
the past." 

The public is welcome, and Karen Juhl

required to attend. A quiz is

Editor: , , ^. 

I have just attended the 
showing of the final segment of 
the "Roots" marathon. 1 have 
also heard the author, Alex 
Haley, lecturing in the same 
auditorium on Saturday night. 
About seven or eight hundred 
people were present each 
evening the motion pictures 
were shown and. to judge from 
audience reaction, all were 
moved by this recounting of 
the history of an American 

Each of these marathon 
evenings involved films every- 
one has had a chance to see 
before. One of the segments 
was even being shown during 
Super Bowl XV. The question 
arises, how is it that Mr. 
Haley's fascinating lecture 
was attended by, at most, 300? 
A large number of that 300 was 
from Chattanooga. The event 
was considered important 
enough that both the Times 
and the News-Free Press sent 
reporters, and three radio 
, stations sent equipment and 
reporters. In addition , tele- 
vision reporters and camera- 
men from both channel 9 and 
channel 12 were there for 
practically all of the lecture, 
leaving just in time to show 
footage during the 1 1 :00 news. 
What were the other events 
of the evening in the area that 
siphoned off so many that only 
a pitifully small group was left 
to enjoy Mr. Haley's lecture 
and question-and-answer ses- 
sion? The Kiwanis' showing of 
"The Jungle Book" and a 
showing in Thatcher Hall of 
"The Ghost and Mr. 
Chicken". Between them, 
possibly almost a thousand 
people, plus many otherwise 
occupied, chose not to hear 
Alex Haley. 

As Mr. Haley's summation 
appeared for a few minutes at 
the end of the last segment of 
"Roots" with his face on the 
screen and his voice coming 
over the loudspeaker. 1 
thought to myself if only we 
had filmed his lecture and 
presented it instead of the man 
in person, easily two or three 
times as many people would 
have come. The Artist-Adven- 
ture Series Committee, com- 
posed of both teachers and 
students, works hard to bring 
entertainment to this college 
that is both interesting and 
valuable. Are films the only 
thing that students will go to 
see? Sometimes I think the 
Artist-Adventure Committee 
would have more success if it 
just gave up and scheduled 
army training films every 
Saturday night. 

Students in a college envi- 
ronment should have access to 
more, deserve to have more, 
and pay for more than just 
day-to-day classes. Many will 
look upon these years in 
college as halcyon days when 
their cultural opportunities, 
those things most important 
that have to do with the human 
spirit created by God, were 
greatest. But will they have 
taken advantage of it? Or, as 
happened this past Saturday 
night, will students sell their 
birthright for a mess of pot- 

tage? Will Southern Mission

January 29, 1981/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

The College; 

According to Art Jordan 

Sickness doesn't pay. After 
living a life full of disease and 
bacteria, I've become a born 
again health fiend. I can now 
testify that, as hard as it may 
seem, it's worth it to suffer the 
mental anguish of abstinence 
rather to enjoy the pleasures of 
sugar for a season. 

I am about to tell my 
conversion story. I certainly 
don't wish to sound as if I'm 
glorifying my wicked past, but 
there are some things that 
must be told in order to call 
intemperance by its right 
name. Hopefully, by telling it 
like it is, I can save some young 
person from the fate that was 

I was raised in a fine health 
conscious home. I grew up 
knowing how to distinguish 
between sugar and wheat 
germ. Somehow, however, 
that old rebelliousness stirred 
within me, and I found myself 
growing more and more 

It started with little things. I 
would rush into a grocery store 
and buy a candy bar when my 
Mom was busy shopping. 
Unfortunately, things didn't 
stop there. Once I tried an ice 
cream cone. And then another. 
And another. Finally, I was 
sneaking off to the Diary 
Queen at every spare moment. 

By the time I got to college, I 
was a goner. I found myself 
making regular trips to the CK 
for a milkshake. I knew I was in 
the pit of degradation and 
there seemed no way out. The 
final straw came when I drove 
down to Baskin Robbins and 
ordered a butterscotch Sunday. 
Someone down there must 
have recognized me. because I 
soon found myself being 
escorted into the health service 

Let me tell you, it isn't easy 
to watch that infirmary door 
swing shut behind you--block- 
ing off the freedom that you 
once knew and held 'so 
precious. All I could do was 
bury my head in my hands and 
weep, I was so ashamed. 

A jeering guard threw me 
into a small room where I found 
myself face to face with the 
subwarden. She skipped the 
mug shots and the finger- 
printing and went right to work 
with the Chinese thermometer 
torture. I had heard of this 
treatment before, but never 

knew just how bad it was until I 
experienced it. They cram the 
thermometer down your throat 
and then look at it and say 
something like "103". That's 
designed to break your spirit. 1 
was strong, though. For two 
days straight they jammed the 
thing in every half hour and 
kept saying "103". Finally, 
they must have thought my 
spirit was defeated, for they 
started saying "101" and then 

Upon first entering I had 
been allowed my one phone 
call. Just to prove how low I 
had fallen, instead of calling 
my lawyer I had called my 
roommate and asked him to try 
and sneak some sugar in to me. 
It seemed like an eternity, but 
he finally showed up and, after 
checking the halls to make sure 
the guards weren't paying 
attention, tookoff his shoe and 
pulled an ice cream cone out 
from the bottom of his sock. 
The warden caught me, 
though, and my chances for 
getting out on parole were 

The inmates started plan- 
ning a riot. We would com- 
municate from our beds by 
beating bedpans against the 
wall in morse code. It was 
cumbersome, but we knew that 
an infirmary break out was our 
only hope. 

Someone snuck a file in to 
my cell mate, a hardened sugar 
junkie who I believe was in for 
life. That sent everyone's 
spirits up and we started 
planning the exact moment for 
the escape attempt. 

Suddenly, it was over. For 
no apparent reason, they let us 
all go. I think that maybe the 
college president had granted 
us all a pardon. 

In any case, I'm a changed 
man. Now I'm spending my 
time working with a group 
called Sweet Tooth Anony- 
mous. This is a fine organiza- 
tion that gives sugar junkies a 
chance to get together and 
encourage each other to keep 
on abstaining. 

That's my story. I know it's 
hard to believe that a clean cut 
fellow like Art Jordan could be 
so messed up inside, but it's 
true. If you don't believe it, I 
snuck back a souvenir pair of 
handcuffs from the infirmary 
to prove it.

4/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/January 29, 1981 



I stepped into the West 
Wing of the White House at 
11:05 a.m. I carefully sat down 
on the plush high-shoulder 
sofa in the lobby watching 
military and executive person- 
nel speed by on various assign- 

My eyes toured the large 
front room full of antique 
furniture. Suddenly, I looked 
down the hallway as Jody 
Powell rushed out of his office 
and into the press room next 
door. 1 quickly glanced at niy 
brother, widening my eyes as if 
to ask, "Was that who I 
thought it was?" His look 
equalled my expression and 
without bothering to conceal 
his excitement blurted out in a 
whisper, "That was Jody 

It was hard for me to believe 
that 1 was sitting in the 
executive offices of the White 
House and that in 20 minutes I 
would be meeting with the 
President of the United States 
of America. 

This past Thanksgiving 1 had 
the privilege to be formally 
invited, along with my brother, 
Robert, to one of the nation's 
most prestigious and historical 
landmark-The White House, 
the' home where America's 

throughout history not only 
\ administrated this country, but 

r also where some of America's 

greatest men lived. This House 
would be open for me to

convention and took advantage 
of the question-and-answer 
period. Robert asked the 
President what it was like to 
live in the White House and if 
possible, could he be given 
formal tour of it. 

On Wednesday, November 
19, 1980, 1 received a late night 
phone call from Robert in 
Miami. He explained to me 
that he had spoken to Joseph 
Murphy, the now former Di- 
rector of Appointments and 
Admissions in the White 
House. Mr. Murphy called on 
behalf of the President to 
formally invite him to a White 
House vi^it and possible inter- 
view with Carter himself. 

When 1 heard this news my 
first reaction was to laugh, and 
1 did. I couldn't imagine 
anyone in our family ever 
visiting the President in his 
home. But, my brother isn't 
much of a kidder and when his 
voice remained serious, it was 
then I realized he wasn't 
joking. My very own brother 
was going to Washington, 
D.C. to meet with the Presi- 
dent of the United States of 

But Robert went on to tell me 
that this wasn't the reason thai 
he called me. He wanted to 
know if I would like to join him 
and if so, he needed my social 
security number to give to the 
White House when they called 
him the next day. When I 
heard this, my first reaction 
was to again laugh, and 1 did. 
But Robert was serious and 
excited at the same time. In his 
calm voice, he phrased the 
.question again: "Would you 
like to go with me to D.C. and 

see the President? Yes or No?" 
I had one week to make the 
necessary preparations for my 
visit. I reasoned with myself 
that no matter how many Time 
OT Newsweek magazines that I 
read, 1 would not be able to 
review the entire Carter Ad- 
ministration. So I settled on 
asking the president simple 
questions on domestic issues. 
After arranging a meeting time 
and place with my brother, 
carefully phrasing my ques- 
tions on paper, and making 
sure the White House cleared 
me, I was ready and on my way 
to meet the President. 

The day of the meeting 
began with a cold morning. 
The chilled air rushed through 
me as I tried to convince the 
officer at the gate that I did 
indeed have an appointment 
with the President. 

"Believe me, officer." I 
explained, "my name is Frank 
Roman and I have an 11:30 
a.m. appointment to meet with 
Mr. Carter." Somehow I was 
not getting through to him. 
Why didn't he have me on his 
records of appointments? 
What if I had not been cleared? 
Could it be possible for them to 
arrest me? 1 became more 
nervous and much colder as I 
stood in front of the gate 
window waiting to be admitted 
for my very exclusive inter- 
After a few minutes of silent 
brainstorming, I remembered 
Joe Murphy. Again I ap- 
proached the police officer at 
the gate window and noticed 
the other three officers 
laughing. I knocked on the 
window, "Officer," 1 said in an 
important sounding voice, 
"contact Joe Murphy, I'm sure 
he'll explain things to you." 

"Oh. Mr. Murphy knows 
that you're coming here?" he 

"Yes. sir." 

"We'll call and clear up this 
thing, OK?" 

By this time Robert had 
arrived and I briefed him on all 
that was happening. A few 
minutes later, the officer 
second in command handed us 
our "Official Visitor's Pass". 
With a very formal tone, he 
smiled and directed us to the 
West Wing entrance. Joe had 
requested that the officers 
send us by the official entrance 
because we were here at the 
President's ihvitation. 
Itwas 11:30 a.m. ana we wei . 
still waiting nervously for our 

visit. The questions I had 
planned to ask the President 
kept running through my 
mind. I carelly phrased each 
one to myself as 1 watched the 
desk officer write and keep 
track of the appointments for 
that day. I settled back in the 
sofa while imagining how I was 
to act with the President, when 
Joe Murphy, a tall, brown- 
haired, executive-type entered 
the room. 

"He's young," I though to 
myself as Robert and I intro- 
duced ourselves to him. He 
shook our hands and greeted 
us with a warm diplomatic 
manner. Before we even began 
the tour, Joe hit us with the bad 

"Guys," he bagan, "The 
President won't be able tp 
meet with you today. He's 
been called to Camp David and 
must leave by 12 this after- 
noon. I'm sorry." 

We were shattered when he 
told us this. I had come all the 
way from Tennessee just to 
meet the President in the Oval 
office and now we wouldn't 
even be able to see him. 

"I will, however," he con- 
tinued, ' 'escort you to the 
South Portico and you will be 
able to see the President off." 
We stood there with obvious 
looks of disappointment on our 
faces. ' 'Don't worry, ' ' he 
added witha smile. "I'll make

across from the bullet proff 
French doors. The two Ming 
vases that China gave to 
President Nixon when he was 
in office, sat on two corner 
tables near the sofa facing the 
famous fireplace where Carter 
held his down-home fireside 
chats. The door leading into 
the office measure almost 8 
inches thick and was bolted 
shut whenever the President 
held Top Secret meetings.

During F. D. Roosevelt's 
administration, the public 
knew this room as the Fish 
Tank Room. Roosevelt 
delighted in the company of 
exotic fishes while he worked 
on government issues. 

From the West Wing, Joe 
showed us the ground floor of 
the White House. 

"None of the rooms on the 
ground floor are open to the 
general public." remarked 
Joe. "The tourists are only 
allowed to walk along the 
corridor and amire the paint- 
ings of the First Laides. They 
especially like the one of Jackie 
Kennedy in the golden colored 
gown." He motioned towards 
it as he said that. 

"Can we go into any of the 
rooms?" I asked, anxious for 
his reply. He stared long at 
me, as if in deep thought, then 
turned away to use the nearby 
security phone. After a few 
minutes he returned, smiled, 
opened two huge doors and 
motioned us into the Dip- 
lomatic Reception Room.

early 19th century and contains 
shelves filled with several 
thousand volumes of books by 
great American authors. A 
large portrait of George Wash- 
ington hangs stately over the 
marble fireplace. 

"Hey guys," said Joe, "I'm 
going upstairs. I've got to 
check with security and clear 
you for upstairs." 

So Robert and I stood in the 
hallway, admiring the portraits 
of past first ladies. Joe looked 
down the stairs and called for 
us to come upstairs. We had no 
idea where we were going. 

"Where are we going?" I 
asked Robert. 

"I don't know," he whis- 
pered back, "just follow him." 
At the top of the stairs we 
stopped at the threshold of the 
door and stood amazed at what 
we saw: a spacious room 
decorated in off-white and 
gold, sparsely furnished, with 

three large crystal chandeliers. 
"This," introduced Joe, "Is 
the East room." 

"Is this where they have the 
balls and receptions?" asked 
"It sure is," smiled Joe. 
Amazed at how huge this 
room was, I carefully stepped 
in to absorb more of its 
elegance repressing the over- 
whelming desire to break into a 
waltz, I investigated the 
largest piece of furniture in the 
room-the Steinway Piano. 

Encased in mahogany wood 
and at the request of F. D. 
Roosevelt this piano is suppor- 
ted with solid brass eagle 
figures. My finger carressed 
the polished ivory keys and 
smooth wood. 

"Go ahead and play it," 
boomed a voice from across the 
room. I turned quickly to see an 
older gentlemen walking 
towards the three of us. 

"It should be played at least 
half an hour every day. The 
Carters never bother with it," 
he said. "Go ahead." 

I stared at Joe, he shrugged 
his shoulders. I looked to 
Robert, he did the same. 
Slowly I leaned over the 
keyboard and ever so gingerly 
played a C major chord (the 
only one I know). The room _, 
echoed with the full sound 
from the piano. 

' 'That piano has been played 
by great musicians. The last 
giant to touch those keys was 
Duke Ellington." said the 
gentleman. "I'm Mr. Pierce, 
Chief of Domestic Services 
here at the House." He shook 
our hands. 

Mr Pierce explained to us 
that the two immense fu-e- 
places at either end of the room 
were made from imported red 
marble from Italy, 

Then Joe took us to the 
Green Room, Oval Blue Room, 
and Red Room. These rooms 
are used as informal parlors. 
Mrs. Carter used these rooms 
when relaxing with the Pre- 
sident after a busy day in the 

Connected to the Red Room 
is the State Dining Room. Most 
of the room is decorated in gold 
and white marble. If you were 
to be invited to the state dining 
room, Dwight D. Eisenhower's 
china would be the official 
dinnerware. The crystal 
glasses are tulip shaped and 
the napkins are g61d 

Standing in the main hall 
Joe, Robert, and I gazed up the 
red-carpeted stairs to the 
second floor living quarters. 

"The tour ends here." Joe 
remarked, "i hope you enjoyed 
it. It's5:30 and I've got to go." 
We walked down the hall to 
the main entrance and out the 
front glass doors. 

' 'Joe, thank you so much for 
your time," Robert said. 

"Iwas glad to help. I'll work 
on getting the President to sign 
you a picture and mail it to you 
soon." He smiled and headed 
for the Executive Office across 
the street. 

Slowly we walked to the 
gate. Pulling off my visitor's 
pass I asked Robert if he 
thought that I should keep it. 
But, when we got to the gate 
the officers asked for them and 
regretfully I handed it back to 

Standing on the outside of 
the gate I looked back at the 
White House that I had just 
visited. Shaking my head 
disbelief, I turned and posed 
for my brofhe

View from the Stands 


With two weeks of the position with all the teams 

basltetball season over we having identical 2 and 2 

begin to see who the top teams records, 

are in each league. This week Since then Price's team has 
jumped into first place with 

"AA" League two big wins over Ware and is 

After two weeks of play, this using a balanced attack to win 

league found itself in a unique their games. Schultz's team 

moved into second place by 
defeating Rathbun's team and 
stopping their two game wm- 
ning streak. 

For now this league has 
developed into a three team 
race. Rouse, Cain, and the 
faculty have all remained spot- 
less in the loss column. FacuKy 
woii big, twice last week over 
Jansen, while Rouse picked up 
a win over Clements and Cain 
remained at 2 to 0. A big game 
in this league will be next 
Monday night (Feb. 2) when 
Rouses' team will square oft 
against the faculty. 

"B" League 

Last week saw a major turn 
around in the standings with 
Burk's team coming up with an 
upset victory over Shaw. 
Burk's team has moved into 
sole possession of first place in 
this league whh a 3-1 record. 
They have been led by Kent 
Williams who leads the league 
in scoring and has been very 
effective in the rebounding 
department. Other teams in 
this league need to beat Shaw 
and Burks in order to prevent 
this team from becoming a two 
team race for first.

Introspect: Wisdom from Kings & Wisemam 

Released 'Hostages' Talk by the Sea of Glass 

January 29, 1981/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

The two former "hostages,*' 
now called "returnees," strol- 
led ecstatically across the field 
of luscious green that stret- 
ched between the Throne of 
God and the Sea of Glass. Lost 
in wonderment, the two began 
to retrace in their minds the 
multitude of events that had 
taken place within the past few 
months (as they used to 
measure time on earth). 

It had really happened! 
Jesus had FINALLY come! The 
reality of it was just beginning 
to sink in. But then, from the 
looks on their faces it was 
evident that all eternity could 
not provide enough time for 
them to fully grasp the wonder- 
ful magnitude of His coming 
and the end of their earthly 


They had been sitting by the 
Sea for some time now, gazing 
up into the most loving face in 
the universe, the face of 
Father. He is seated on the 
throne and is receiving thou- 
sands of His children all at 
once. With some. He visits, 
talking with them about many 
things: The coming that has 
just taken place, the dis- 
coveries they've already made 
here in Heaven, or whatever is 
on their minds. With others 
He is simply hugging them 
close, telling them that it's all 
over now, rest in His love. It's 
incredible to watch. The 
Father is able to minister to all 
His children simultaneously! 
As for the two by the Sea, they 
are content to bask in th*" 

overwhelming pulsations of 
love that emanate from Father 
to all heaven. 

At last, one by the Sea 
breaks the revery. "I can 
hardly believe that I almost 
turned the Lord down when He 
began to tug on my heart there 
at SMC. Now that I think about 
it, the signs of the Coming 
were all so clearly before us," 
he continued, "there was no 
reason for anyone to miss the 
calling to allow God to prepare 
us to receive the Latter Rain of 
His Spirit. The Lord even 
prompted Pastor Webb to 
preach on receiving the Holy 
Spirit during the final 
moments of time as portrayed 
in the book of Daniel." 

The other by the Sea began 

to shake her head. "Howcould 
anyone have ignored all of the 
controversies within the 
church, the way the church was 
attacked in the U.S. news 
media, and the aims of the 
Moral Majority?" She went 
on, "but more than those 
things, there were the deci- 
sions being made in the lives of 
church members everywhere. I 
can recall attending Pastor 
Morris Venden's meetings 
back in January and hearing 
that some Adventists were 
already rejecting the Sabbath 
as a result of the shaking 
brought on by the contro- 
versies." And now a trace of 
sadness flickered across her 

face as she said softly, "My 
friends at SMC began choosing 
rapidly, unwittingly, to serve 
Satan simply by failing to 
choose to follow Jesus." She 
continued closely, "But there 
was really no excuse. The Holy 
Spirit came down and virtually 
begged all to accept Jesus and 
allow Him to totally take self 
away and dwell within, 
unhindered by Satan." 

The first, turned toward the 
other and replied, "You're 
right. There was no excuse. 
The Spirit of God even used the 
Southern Accent from time to 
time to sound the news of the 
last days."

2/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/Febniary 12, 1981 

Someone once said that flowers are the greeting card of a 
certain consciousness that can see beyond this very taclty 
era. I totally agree. Candy can rot your teeth and make you 
fat. but, FLOWERS, they're a different story. They are 
ejctravagant, impulsive and extremely nice to get. 

I've often wondered what's so great about them, besides 
the fact that they look beautiful, and smell divine, all of 
them wilt and die sooner or later. So what's the bit deal? I 
came to two conclusions: One, getting as well as giving 
blossoms make you feel nice. Remember how you felt after 
Mom exclaimed so over the dandelions you picked from the 
back yard? Didn't you get a warm feeling when she put 
them in a vase on the piano in the living room for the world 
to see? It's that kind of feeling you get even now when you 
surprise someone with violets or daffodils, or maybe they 
surprise you. 

The second conclusion I've reached is that there's 
something extremely gratifying about knowing someone's 
dishing out all that money for blooms that are just going to 

What a heavy sign of affection. Just think, your honey 
spent money on flowers for you knowing full well that 
within three days the petals will fall off onto the floor and be 
ground into the carpet. Still the gesture is appreciated. 

This Valentine's Day. if no one gives you flowers there is 
one down below this editorial for you to color, cut out and 
keep. Doesn't that make you feel nice? Have a happy St 
Valentine's Day.

February 12, 198I/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

The College^^^^^^. 
According to Art Jordan 


Recently my old friend. Dr. 
Alexander Slop, took me on a 
guided tour through a building 
that contained an experiment 
dubbed "Project Matrimony." 

"It seems," Slop told me, 
■■that more and more young 
people are finding it conven- 
ient to forget marriage and are 
jumping straight into living 
together instead. The purpose 
of this experiment is to find 
ways to reestablish the old 
marriaee bonds and see if the 
'American hitch' can once 
again become the rule rather 
than the exception." 

We began the tour by 
looking in through the door of 
the first room where secretar- 
ies were poring over books and 
lictionaries of every sort. 

"What's going on in 
there?" I wanted to know. 

"This." Dr. Slop replied, 
"is our 'sweet-nothings' room. 
It is here where we find 
romantic things for young men 
and women to say to each 
other. By teaching these 
meaningless heart throbs to 
prime marriage prospects 
throughout the country, we 
expect to see a definite in- 

"Great gangling gizzards!" 
I cried when I peerea m the 
door of the next room, "What's" 
going on in there?!" 

Slop laughed at my reaction. 
"This, my friend, is where we 
teach young men the true art of 
kissing. Ifourtheoryis correct, 
the ladies will be so flustered 
after being smooched by one of 
our students that they'll say 
'yes' to anything, including a 
marriage proposal." I headed 
through the door for a quick 
lesson but Slop caught my arm. 
"We must continue our tour, " 
he lectured, "and besides, you 
don't have full security clear- 
As we continued down the 
hall, we were passed by a 
distinguished-looking gentle- 
man with horns and a tail. 
"Who is that man in the funny 
red suit?" I whispered to my 

"That," Slop chuckled, " is 
Cupid, the project's director." 
"What!" I was not whisper- 
ing.this time. "1 thought that 
Cupid was a naked little baby 
that had wings and carried a 
bow and arrow-not a pitch- 
After laughing uncontrolla- 

bly for almost two minutes, 
embarrassing me completely. 
Dr. Slop exclaimed that he was 
"quite surprised and much 
amused' ' to find that I believed 
in such "fairy-tale hogwash." 

Attempting to change the 
subject, I asked why the next 
room was full of people talking 
on telephones. "This is where 
we contact all the young men 
who are preparing to go to 
college," Slop replied, a smirk 
still on his face. "Salesmenare 
on the phones trying to con- 
vince these fellows to become 
theology majors." There was 
no end to the surprises. Before 
I could even ask the meaning of 
this, my tour guide was speak- 
ing again. "You see, in order 
to better their chances of 
getting called to a church, a 
prospective minister needs to 
get married. What better way 
to increase the number of 
weddings than to increase the 
number of preachers." What 
could I say? These people had 
thought of everything. 

The tour was not yet com- 
pleted. Chemists were busy 
working with sophisticated- 
looking equipment in the next 
room. Dr. Slop explained that 
they were trying to find a 
formula that would get the 
body chemistry running at 
a faster pace and hopefully 
would encourage matrimony. 
"We've just had a break- 
through," he explained. "Now 
it's simply a matter of putting 
the potion into pills that look 
like little green M & Ms," 

Everything I've seen today 
has been quite thrilling and 
very surprising, to say the 
least. ' ' I commented at the end 
of the tour. "I'm wondering, 
though, what is going to be 
done with this building when 
'Project Matrimony' is com- 

' • We hope to incorporate the 
project into a full-fledged 
business." Slop said thought- 
fully. "We're just waiting to 
get all the bugs out." 

"What are you going to call 
the business?" I wanted to 

"We've thought about that," 
the good doctor replied. "The 
board of directors has just 
settled on a reasonable and 
simple name-Southern Mis- 
sionary College." 

Love is an ocean of enrwtions, 
entirely surrounded by expenses.

the history 

.Saint Valentine's Day, 
February 14. Who would 
believe its origins were 
so wrapped in mystery? 
Historical sources don't 
agree on many points 
and on others there is 
only myth to turn to. 

The celebration of 
Valentine's Day seems to 
have roots in ancient 
Rome where a festival of 
love was held for the 
young people. When the 
Romans invaded Britain, 
many of their festivals 
were brought with them. 
Despite the rise of 
Christianity, the people 
continued to enjoy many 
pagan celebrations. It was 
impossible to eliminate 
the popular holiday so 
Christian priests decided 
to dedicate it to a 
Christian saint. 

Saint Valentine was 
elected not because of 
any special connection 
with lovers, but because 
the date of martyrdom 
happened to fall in 
mid-February. Myth has 
it that during his 
imprisonment before 
execution, he formed a 
friendship (fell in love) 
with the jailer's blind 
daughter, the only person 
kind to him. Just before 
his death he is to have 
sent her a farewell 
message signed "from 
your Valentino." 

Another St. Valentine 
was bishop of Interaraa 
about 60 miles from 
Rome. He was persecuted 
for converting a Roman 
family to Christianity. He 
was beheaded in Rome 
about A.D.273. 

Centuries later on 
February 14, it was the 
custom for marriageable 
girls to place their 

public square. Eager 
young men drew a name 
from the urn to be his 
"Valentine' ' in hopes of 
forming a permanent 
romance. Another 
superstition grew that the 
first unattached member 
of the opposite sex you 
saw on St. Valentine's 
Day would be your 
sweetheart for the year 
and. eventually, your 
husband or wife. 

By the 1600s the 
whole thing had evolved 
into a very lighthearted 

= Ceii 

A /alenti 

festivity where even 
children and married 
persons drew names and 
became valentines "at 
first sight" on that 
special day. 

Up to that time, men 
had presented their 
valentines with gifts, but 
as yet, no cards seemed 
to be mentioned. During 
the 17th century the 
bringing of notes to 
the one whose name you 
drew, with your name, 
and a complimentary 
"Most Courteous and 
Fair" or other phrase 
became popular. 

In 1640, a small book 
called Cupid's Messenger 
appeared. It was filled 
with verses to help 
express those amorous 
sentiments. A number of 
those ' 'Valentine Writers" 
were published and the 

tradition about this lover's 
day has since been 
carried on by spme of 
the best poets as well 
as some not known. 
Because of the expense 
of mail, it was usually a 
developed skill of slipping 
the valentine under the 
sweetheart's door, 
knocking, and dashing 
away without being seen. 

In 1857 tl^ere were five 
firms making valentines 
in New York City. Cards 
were also imported from 
England, France, and 
Germany. During the 
1880s mechanical 
valentines were perfected. 

During Worid War I, 
servicemen were fond of 
a valentine that was 
specially prepared with a 
surface that held the 
"girl of your dreams" 
kiss on it. Under the 

space was the following 


For Uncle Sam you're 

And that makes me 
love you so 

That I send a kiss in 
the space above 

To take where'er you go. 

Centuries after its 
beginning, Valentine's Day 
is still celebrated. Loved 
ones receive gifts; 
handmade cards created 
with love and great 
attention are presented to 
parents by their eager 
and hopeful children and 
lovers chose with care 
the messenger of their 
affections. Its popularity 
may have faded at brief 
intervals of time but the 
joys of love and caring 
on Valentine's Day have 
kept this celebration aiive.

valentines? Now take a

with red and white

festooned with hearts,

soon to drag mother to 
the dime store in search 
pf a colorful box of 
cards. Classes were larger 
then and my little hand 
grew very tired trying to 

sign all 50 cards for the 
right classmates. 

The ceremony 
surrounding the delivery 
of the mail was always 
very impressive and full 
of pomp. Several of my 
classmates (the ones with 
high marks in behavior) 
were chosen to be the 
"mailmen" and received 
the honor of passing out 
the cards to the rest of 
the class. Teacher always 
insisted on order and 
announced that "We'll go 
by rows," so we had to 
sit and fidget in nervous 
anticipation for our row 
to come up. 

Several mothers had 
"volunteered" (actually, 
we helped with the 
volunteering) to provide 
cupcakes, candy, and 
drinks for the festivity 
that followed. It was 
always more special to 
help nnom make them

the small candy hearts 
atop the cupcakes.

While at Northeastern 
University, Dulan also inde- 
pendently assessed the uni- 
versity's admission policy in 
relation to how it might be 
adapted for use in SDA 
colleges. Northeastern main- 
tains an open admissions 
policy-as do most SDA 
colleges-but has four de- 
scending levels of admittance. 
A student may be admitted for 
the regular college program, 
or, because of low high school 
GPAs and ACT scores, may be 
admitted in one of three 
remedial programs. There- 
fore, freshmen who would 
otherwise not be admitted may 
take courses that concentrate 
on their deficient scholastic 
areas and receive college 
credit for it. This program has 
drawn a considerable amount 
of attention because, after one 
year on the freshman remedial 
program, a student is 
supposed to be ready for 
regular sophomore class 
standing. Dulan hopes to 
follow the result of North- 
eastern's admissions policy to 
consider its feasibility for SDA 
colleges. He feels that

Students suit up for Cold War. 

Dear Editor, 

It was like a scene out of the 
cold war. Fencing was neatly 
cut into little sections and 
metal poles were strewn out on 
the frozen ground. Obviously 
someone was trying to escape 
to the "other" side. White 
rags tied to the fence wires 
waved in the wind and I could 
almost hear watch dogs, 
east-European language, and 
dire threats about planting 
land mines. There were only 
two problems. First, this was 
six o'clock in the morning at 
Southern Missionary College, 
and secondly, it was my 
hard-earned money that was 
and still is being used to put 
that fence in. 

I ask: "Who will win this war 
for the use of the grass? Will 
the fenced-in area between the 
cafeteria entrance and the 
men's residence hall become a 
bird sanctuary? Will cafeteria 
toast keep the mockingbirds 
alive? Or is the fence a 
cover-up? Is its true work to aid 
Health Service nurses in 
keeping patients confined for 
experiments with the cafe- 
teria's new food? Is this proof 
that the system can or cannot 
be beat?" 

Well (as Dr. Grundset would 
say), the fence is still in place. 
All 1 know is that if you come in 

behind the pine trees and go cafeteria. But, uh, don't 

around the basement stairs at anybody!

Prayer Room Lost 

Dear Editor. 

I am very concerned about 
what has happened to the 
prayer room in the Student 
Center. Why did the Student 
Association expand and take 
the prayer room space? If the 
prayer room was not being 
used, doesn't that show that 
we do not have our priorities in 
the right place? 

We should have more 
spiritually-oriented activities 
and less social activities. I 

admit I do like the social 
activities, but when it comes to 
the point where our social life 
outweighs our spiritual lite, 
something needs to be done! 
Our spiritual life should not be 
limited to once-a-week on 

Remember why our school 
was started and what our 
school stands for.

Supplement Wanted 

Dear Editor: 

As I scan the campus this 
semester, I have seen many 
new faces and beautiful 
females that I am not 
acquainted with. As I turn to 
the Student Association's 
guide to names and faces, the 
"Joker", I am puzzled by the 
absence of these new faces! 
Then 1 ask "where's the 
supplement?" Yes, solturnto 

the supplement to find how to 
properly address the new 
students, but once again the 
enigma is not solved! 

So to you, dear Editor and 
fellow students I ask, in this 
mid-semester's period, where 
is the Joker Supplement?

The Gollege^^^^^^ 
According to Art Jordan 

Most college students end up 
taking at least one math course 
during their stay at SMC. 
Whether that course happens 
to be "Basic Math" or 
"Fundamentals of Euclidean 
Geometr>' with an Emphasis on 
the Solutions of Partial 
Differential Equations" 
doesn't seem to make much 
difference. The lesson that is 
learned is always the same: 
the shortest distance between 
two points is a straight line. 

In an attempt to put their 
knowledge into practice, 
students find that they are 
saving considerable amounts 
of time by ignoring the time 
wasting sidewalks and cutting 
across the grass instead. After 
all. a trip from the entrance of 
Talge to the cafeteria takes 
about 15 seconds less if you 
adhere to the straight line 
technique rather than the 
conventional sidewalk stroll. 
This works out to be about a 3 
hour savings for the entire 
school year, certainly nothing 
to sneeze at in this rushed 

The thrifty spirit of the 
students was. unfortunately, 
not appreciated by all. Some 
felt that the man hours being 
saved was too large of a price to 
pay for the destruction of a few 
blades of grass. 

Enter the Collegedale 
Gestapo. Aim: to bring a reign 
of terrorto any who dared stray 
from the cement sidewalk unto 
the sacred grass. 

Gone are the days of the 
"keep off the grass" signs. 
The gestapo refuses to use 
such primitive techniques. It 
will, instead, use its limitless 
funds and power to turn all 
sections of trampled grass into 
a no-mans-land. 

The courageous men and 
women who make up this crack 
team are obviously experts in 
student warfare. Fences have 
appeared almost overnight, 
thwartmg any efforts to 
destroy the precious lawns. In 
the days that followed the 
initial fence, reinforcements 
"ave been added to further 
<iecrease the possibility of the 
grass receiving cruel and 
unusual punishment. 

Some remark that these 
fences are a worse eyesore 
than the trampled grass. Do 
""l these shallow minded 

people realize that beauty is 
not the issue, but rather we are 
only concerned with protecting 
grass from extinction? 
There is some speculation that 
these fences are to serve a 
double purpose. Not only will 
they keep lawn murderers out, 
but at the same time they'll 
keep wild animals in. That's 
right! Rumor has it that SMC, 
under the guidance of the 
talented gestapo, is about to 
begin its own zoo. After all, 
why not put these fences to a 
dual purpose? Collegedale 
may soon become a thriving 
metropolis as tourists from all 
over the country stop to see the 
lions, tigers, and giraffes 
standing alongside the paths 
that at one time saved so many 
students so much time. 
While we wait for the animals 
to arrive, however, the master 
of minds of the gestapo will 
have to keep devising ways to 
block the efforts of frustrated 
students. Don't be surprised 
to see more reinforcements 
added. It is also quite possible 
that guards will be posted on a 
twenty-four hour basis. If that 
is not enough, students must 
also be aware that there is talk 
of installing land mines for 
those who a'jsolutely insist on 
fence jumpmg. 

Have these fenced in areas 
become a war zone? Yes. We 
must keep in mind, however, 
that this is all being done for 
our own good. Grass is pretty 
and it is important that we. as 
busy students, have something 
pretty to look at once in a while. 
One final observation. As I 
was walking down the sidewalk 
the other day, I noticed that a 
horse had found this same 
sidewalk an appropriate place 
to leave his trademark (no 
deposit no return). I was 
careful to walk around this 
obvious disregard for society 
and saw that other students 
were also making the needed 

My question is this: If a 
horse's flagrant action can 
serve the purpose of keeping 
students off a portion of the 
sidewalk, could not the 
gestapo tear down the fences, 
cover the trampled grass with 
horse manure, and thus keep 
passerbys on the sidewalks? 

Writers selctom write tiie tilings tfiey 
think. They simply write the things they 
think other folks think they think.

In Preparation 



■mere is all the difference in the world between reviewing 
and cramming, aamming is a frantic attempt to stuff one's 
mind as full as possible of facts and ideas In and for a short 
time Review is a re-examination of familiar material to 
calify one's understanding, refresh one's memory, and pick 
up any material which has been overlooked or has slipped 
out of mind. 

When you begin to review for a test, glance at your notes 
on a topic, or at the topic heading in your book, or the 
underlining you did, and then stop and think! Force 
yourself to reconstruct the details from memory. Make 
yourself restate in your own words the main points and 
elaborate on them, to be sure that you know enough about 
the topic. After you have done your best to re-think the topic 
scan the topic in the book, or look over your notes again, to 
see if you overlooked anythina imoortant. (This is 
important. Sometimes you may think you know a topic 
thoroughly when you really do not. By scanning material as 
you review, you not only know that you know it, you also 
refresh your memory of it.) 

If testing reveals that you did overlook something 
important as you mentally restated the paragraph or topic.

Ire taking an objective test (multiple-choice,

^^your knowledge of a subject, not your ingenuity 

verbal puzzles. So don't out-smart yourself 

devious, tricky interpretations and ignoring the 

[Jflatest where you are to write answers in your 
observe these rules: 

(1) Read tne question carefuliy. Then re-read it and 
express its meaning inyour own words. Check each word in 
the question to be sure that your interpretation omitted 
nothing important. To give a satisfactory answer to a 
question, you have to correctly understand what It is 

(2) Answer the questions you know first. This way you 
will be sure not to use all your time puzzling over questions 
you do not know the answer to and then run short of 1 1 me for 
writing answer you know well. (You should start each 
answer on a separate page so that you can keep them in 
their proper order.) 

(3) Outlne your answer on a piece of scratch paper before 
starting to write it in full. In this way you can organize your 
thoughts and check your answers against the question for 
possible omissions. Writing from your outline, you can 
present what you know more clearly and completely than 
you could If you just started writing down your thoughts as 
they came to you. 

(4)Write with a good pen, or a well-sharpened No. 2 
pencil so that your writing can be easily read, not be faint, 
or blurred, or thick, or with skips in your lines. 

(5) Watch your penmanship, spelling, and punctuation. 
No matter how much I iterature or history, or whatever, you 
may know, it will impress your instructor less if you answer 
in a near-illegible scrawl. As a scholar who loves his field, 
he is displeased if you discuss It with the misspellings, or if 
you leave your meaning difficult or Impossible to fathom 
because of poor punctuation. 

(6) Read over your answers after you have finished your 
paper, checking for thought and completeness, as well as 
spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure. All these 
factors are related to your mastery of a course. (How do you 
spell words correctly without access to a dictionary, which 
you are unlikely to haveduring tests? By noting the spelling 
of words that are not thoroughly familiar to you while you 
are studying, and looking up the spelling when you use 
them in papers you prepare outside of class!) 

What is involved in answering a question "complete" is 
determined by the question wording itself and the 
preference of individual profesors. From tjje number of 
questions on the test and the amount of time you are 
allotted, you can form a rough approximation of how fully 
he wants the questions answered. 

(7) Count your questions and answers before you hand 
your paper in, to be sure you did not overlook any. Be sure 
your pages are in correct order so the instructor will not 
have to shuffle through them trying to sort them out.

T^ie Rees Series was started 
n 1971 by Lyie Botimer who 
vas the Dean of men at that 
ime. Originally it was a dorm 
IS. village, best 2 out of 3 
tournament. By 1976 

grown so large that the village 
could not be expected to 
compete on an equal basis. The 
new format of a class 
tournement was adopted in 
1977 and has continued 

Dr. Rees was President of 
thecollegefrom 1958-1967. He 
was a former Basketball player 
and coach. He understood the 
costs and benefits of sports. He 
stressed the positive aspects 
and always kept the game in its 
perspective. Dr. Rees died m 
1977. The series continues in 
memory of him. 

This year's series will get 
underway Thursday night 
(Feb. 19) at 8:30. This late 
starting is due to the Faculty 
board banquet also scheduled 
for Thursday evenine. The fust 
game will have the defendmg 
champions, class of '83 taking 
on this years Freshmen, the 
class of '84. Immediately 
following this game the 
Juniors, class of '82 will take 
on the Seniors, class of '81. 
The seniors won the Rees 
series both as Freshman and 
Sophmores but were upset in 
the first round of last years 

A full night of activities are 
planned for Saturday night 
beginning at 7. The consola- 
tion game will be the first game 
played and then the series will 
reach its climax with the 
championship game. Come out 
to have a good time Thursday 
and Saturday nights and to 
cheer your team on. 


Two big victories for Price 
and Schultz this past week 
have sent them into a two way 
tie for first place in this league. 
Thus, the stage has been set 
for Monday, Feb. 23 at 5:30 
when these two teams will 
square off to determine the 
champion of "AA" league. 


Burk's team was left in sole 
possession of first place when 
Hernandez upset Shaw Mon- 
day night. At the time this 
article was written two big 
games remained in "B 
league, (Burks vs. Record) and 
(Burks vs. Flach). If Burks' lost 
to Record there could end up a 
3 way tie for first. Between 
Burks, Shaw, and Record. 
However, should Burks win 
both these games they would 
be the champs of "B" league. 


Cain's team saw their hopes 
of an undefeated season 
shattered when they were 
upset by Clement's 53 to 51. 
The victory was Clement's first 
win of the season. Cain has a 
big game Sunday, Feb. 22 at 
8:30 when they go up against 
Webster, a team that gave 
Cain all they could handle in a 
previous meeting. If Cain were 
to lose, it would drop them into 
a tie for first with Rouse. 


The Womens league boasts 
the only team left that can 
possibly finish the season with 
an undefeated season. Bishop 
is currently in first place (8-0) 
with one game left. A loss 
would not only spoil their 
undefeated season but would 
put them in a tie for first with

WSMC Discontinues NPR 



thern Missionary Col- 
radio station WSMC- 

las discontinued "All 
Things Considered" and other 
National Public Radio (NPR) 
network programming. 

According to President 
Frank Knittel complaints 
coming from many individuals 
in the Collegedale community 
prompted this action. The 
general feeling was that the 
NPR programming was incon- 
sistant with the standards of 
SMC; airing information on 
rock music, questionable ways 
of life, and other subjects not 
condoned by the Seventh-day 
Adventist church. 

"The McKees or any other 
people or business have not 

tried to bargain with the 
school on this situation , ' ' 
stated Knittel. 

Some contributions to the 
station, however, have been 
withheld because of dis- 
approval of the unedited NPR 

"We had to make some big 
changes." said station 
manager Don Self. "The sta- 
tion airs religious and classical 
music and quite a bit of news. 
The station pulled back on the 
NPR news to get a new 

After an indepth look into 
the situation more NPR news 
may be aired in the future, but 
for the time being, WSMC- 
FM has had to take a more 
conservative stance.

Dear Editors: 

It is snowing outside and 
the city looks better than it did 
after a week of slushy 
weather. The sun shone for 
two days and some prissy 
willows "bloomed" (during 
the writer of 1978-1979 that 
didn't happen until April I 
think) out at the University.

We watched the hostages 
board their aircraft, and some 
of the inauguration, on Soviet 
T.V. There are lengthy anal- 
yses of the American econo- 
mic crisis and of the unfriend- 
ly attitudes of some new 
government officials. 

It is not allowed to send 
scientific data through the 
mail without elaborate paper- 
work, so I shall have to trust 
that the Soviet Academy can 
persuade the customs officials 

to let me carry our old 
materials and my new work 
out with me. I have already 
begun another large drawing 
(ionization potentials) and 
have already had stimulating 
talks about our Periodic 
System. As far as the experi- 
ment is concerned it is pretty 
much ready to go after I'/i 
years of modernization and I 
am reading up on it. 

We have had warm re- 
unions with most of our 
friends from before. Jenny 
and Missi skate with some of 
the same young people at the 
little rink in the apartment 
complex yard. 

Jennifer suffered from a 
defective mouth spray bottle; 
the squirt hole and much the 
liquid went down her throat. I 
held her upside down and 
explained to the "Rapid 
Medical Help" (03 on any 
telephone) what happened. A 
doctor and two medical stu-

NPR Programming Defended: 

To the Editor: 

A recent occurrence that 
should not pass without com- 
ment was the decision to 
remove "All Things Con- 
sidered" from the WSMC 
programming schedule. A 
production of National Public 
Radio (of which WSMC is an 
affiliate), the show combines 
hard news, commentary, and 
special features on a host of 
subjects. The program has 
been lauded by numerous 
media critics for its innovative 

Objections have been voiced 
by some WSMC listeners con- 
cerning the political or social 
slant of the NPR program- 
ming. Certainly such listeners 
have a right to express their 
views about the programs. 
What 1 strongly question, 
however, are 
these people seem to hold 
about the function of educa- 

values. While no one doubts 
that most Adventists (and 
other listeners in the WSMC 
area) are politically and 
socially conservative, to refuse 
to listen to alternative opin- 
ions and to demand that such 
opinions not be aired carries 
personal conviction to unwar- 
rated lengths. Indeed, one 
could make a good case for 
WSMC's carrying "All Things 
Considered" solely on the 
grounds that its audience 
more than most needs to be 
alerted to various points of 
view. The point of educa- 
tional radio is, after all, to 
educate, not to reinforce opin- 
ions already ingrained 
years of selective

goal of WSMC or negatively 
reflected upon Southern Mis- 
sionary College? Not in the 
least. Its features, which were 
already subject to judicious 
editing for taste by the WSMC 
staff, did not offend either 
church or school standards. 

Again, it must be recog- 
nized that as an educational 
station WSMC should broad- 
cast diverse viewpoints on 
national issues in hope of 
stimulating thought; it ought 
to plav tjie gadfly. Such a 
function is certainly closer to 
the original spirit of Christian- 
ity than is Ihe smug, culture- 
bound attitude we can easily 
fall into. We should encourage 
this spirit rather than stifle il.

adio. The 

assumption, evidently, is that 
all WSMC programniing must 
promote conservative econo- 
mic social beliefs. This is a 
mistake on two counts. First. 
FCC regulations are meant to 
encourage the propagation of 
various opiiiions-WSMC can- 
not, even if it so wished, limit 
itself 10 Adventist program-

March 12, 1981 /THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

The College According to Art Jordan 

There are two things to do 
at SMC that I consider as 
exciting as sitting in a concen- 
tration camp gas chamber. 
One of tliese is eating a Sam's 
Chicken sandwich at the C.K. 
The other is talking to one of 
the financial counselors at the 
student finance office. . 

I have often taken a stroll to 
the finance office to ask a 
"quick" question, only to find 
myself coming back to the 
room for my sleeping bag and 
toothbrush. For some reason 
I've never had quite enough 
patience to wait in line for the 
three and a half days required 
before entering the throne 
room. I've often wondered, 
however, what actually takes 
place behind those 
doors. I wouldn't be 

picious. except that I once 
counted the people going in 
and coming out and found that 
there were fewer coming out 
than there were going in. 

That is why I recently 
confronted a couple of parents 
whto were about to enter 
SMC's equivalent of the Ber- 
muda Triangle. Mr. and 
Mrs. Hardpressed were reluc- 
tant to let me accompany them 
at first, but after flashing my 
press card and revealing my 
identity, they literally begged 
me to come with them. Soon a 
secretary called their names 
and. after waiting for me to 
finish autographing a few 
financial aid packets being 
shoved in my face, showed us 
through the doon and into the 


People Helping People 


land of legend and myth. 

We were seated in front of a 
man who looked as though 
he'd just completed a seventy 
year term as a Siberian drill 
seryeanl. After grunting a 
greeting iliai would probably 
cause some a nervous break- 
down, he asked the parents as 
to the nature of their visit. 

♦ They explained that they 
had a son who would be 
graduaiing from academy and 
they wanted to see if they 
could afford to send him to 
SMC. "Of course you can 
afford it!" our host shouted. 
"Everyone can afford to go to 
SMC!" I coughed. 

Mr. Hardpressed handed 
the counselor a list of the 
family's assets and income. 
After a moment of discomfort- 
ing silence the counselor 
began wtiiking things out like 
a computer. "O.K.." he 
began in a politician's mono- 
tone. "There are several basic 
costs at a college and I think 1 
can foresee a way for you to 
meet all expenses with no 
extra hassle. First, there is 
college tuition. If your son will 
take twelve hours a semester 
during the next year, you can 
cover the cost by selling your 
house and moving into a pup 
tent. Of course, if he takes 
more than that you may end 
up sleeping under the stars." 

I watched as Mr. and Mrs. 
Hardpressed looked at each 
other in disbelief. Mr. Hard- 
pressed glanced over at me as 
if to say. "He's just kidding, 
isn't he?" I coughed again. 

The counselor continued. 
"Next we have lo consider the 
cost of boarding in the dorm- 
itory. How far do you have to 
travel to work. Mr. Hard- 

"Thirty miles." 

"Good. Then ii should be 
no trouble for you to sell your 
car and slail walkuig trom 
now on. As for food. If your 
son will promise to eat only 
two light meals a day, I think 
you should be able to get by 
with selling your T.V., stereo, 

dryer, and any other neces- 
sary luxuries you may have 
lying around." 

By this time Mrs. Hard- 
pressed had fainted and Mr. 
Hardpressed, who was ashen 
white and shaking consider- 
ably, was in no condition to 
help her. The financial wizard 
continued on as if nothing was 
wrong. "Then there are books 
to buy and other miscella- 
neous items such as lab fees to 
consider. You should be able 
to handle those costs by 
selling the family's wardrobe 
with the exception, of course, 
of what you're wearing now. I 
would suggest that you start 

by selling any jeans that 
members of your family may 

Unfortunately. Mr. Hard- 
pressed had fainted too, and I 
alone sat listening as the voice 
continued on without a pause. 



realize that your son will be 
going through a stage where 
he will consider it a must to try 
a date or two throughout the 
course of the year. If you. Mr. 
Hardpressed, will take on a 
small extra job of, oh. let's say 
about 40 more hours a week, I 
feel that would adequately 
cover the expenses of a few 
Saturday nights. 

"And of course," the per- 
petual motion mouth 
continued, "There are several 
breaks during the year when 
you will want Junior home. I 
don't think it would be too 
much to ask Mrs. Hard- 
pressed to get out of the house 
and work about 72 hours a 
week so that you can pay for 
the gas to transport your son 

"Now," the heartless coun- 
selor finally stopped talking 
long enough to take a dramatic 
pause, "college isn't as ex- 
pensive as other people lead 
you to believe, is it?" But 
there was no one to answer. I 
bad fainted too. 

Dickerhoff Responds to Everything 

Dear Editor, 

I'm responding to an accu- 
sation tlial SMC is a cultural 
wasteland. When 1 first read 
the lelter it kind of upset me. I 
didn't want to hear Alex Haley 
speak because I'm not the 
most informed person on 
campus, and I don't know who 
he is or what he does. I can see 
why a biology tiiajor or even a 
chemistry major would like to 
hear Mr. Haley, but how do 
they expect the rest of the 
school to be interested in 
hearing a talk on roots? Per- 
sonally. "The Ghost and Mr. 
Chicken" was smething I 
could intelligently relate to 

Well, after I calmed down 
about the letter. I got to 
talking with some of my 
friends about what had been 
said. And you know-it's true. 
SMC is a cultural desert. We 
couldn't think of one Saturday 
night activity that we remem- 
bered having grown culturally 
by attending in the three years 
we've been here. Both of 

those activities (Alex Haley 
and "The Ghost and Mr. 
Chicken") were a waste(land) 
of time. 

For the benefit of the stu- 
dents we have organized a 
special week to emphasize the 
cultural aspect of SMC. We 
are calling it "I Love Cultural 
Wasteland Week." 

This special week will fea- 
tul-e talent competition, classic 
films, and guest artists. 

The film festival will begin 
Monday and will be held in the 
Thatcher Hall Chapel. Our 
theme is "The Army and Its 
Training." We will begin the 
week with the classic "Setting 
Up Sanitation Facilities" and 
we will end the week with the 
socially relevant "Your Best 
Friend -The M-16 Rifle." This 
film will require children to be 
accompanied by an adult. 

The preliminary rounds of 
Ihe "Pig Calling Contest" will 
start Tuesday with the finale 
being held Friday during 
lunch. The school has really 

allocated funds for an authen- 
tic pig yard to be built on the 
men's dorm side of Wright 
Hall. The barbed wire fence is 
already up and the pigs should 
be arriving any day. The 
students who eat by the 
windows on that side of the 
cafeteria are asked to throw 
their scraps out the windows 
instead of throwing them 
away. We want the pen to be 
comfortable and homey when 
Ihe pigs arrive. 

Also to end the week we 
plan to have Willie Nelson 
here Saturday night. He will 
be giving a benefit concert to 
raise money for the new 
"Cultural Emphasis Building 
and Bar-B-0." that is to be 

We were planning on 
having a cultural fashion 
show, but we had it scheduled

Hello. I'm the easy-rider 
resident mouse of SMC's tour- 
ing bus. You probably haven't 
seen me around, but. I've 
seen and heard a lot of what 
has happened on the bus. By 
the way, I appreciate the 
crumbs and tortilla chips some 
of you have kicked my way. 

Well, this last trip was a 
real scream. Before now all I 
have seen are the southern 
states, but on this trip the 
gymnastic team crossed a 
mythical border and a real 
one, going to Texas and 
Mexico. Usually I sleep in that 
seat toward the back that is 
falling apart, but the bus was 
full with 38 tumblers and their 
helpers so I moved out for the 
nine days. I heard someone 
say there would be four pro- 
grams in a six-day span, but I 
was afraid of getting left so I 
stayed close to the bus (I think 
I'll scamper over to the college 
gym next month though and 
catch the home show). 

Well, I heard all kinds of 

hard-to-beljeve things on this 
trip, Tacos for breakfast' If 
the Alamo was fought today 
would the Irish win? You have

besides she kept warning me

the Rio Grande Academy 
wrapped up the shows. 

Well, that bus rolled on for 
60 hours, spreading good-will 
outside and hammocks and 
sleeping bags in. Anyone who 
had a big Mac attack had a 
problem getting through those 
stacks. But I had a fun time

you're on the bus, be sure and

Elsa Melendez 

Alexander Ginzberg, a well- 
known Russian poet and advo- 
cate of the dissident move- 
ment was exchanged on April 
27, 1979 along with four other 
dissidents for two convicted 
Soviet spies held here in the 

He has been harassed by 
the Soviet authorities espe- 
cially the KGB (Soviet intel- 
ligence) since 1960 for being 
an activist for human rights, 
for writing an unofficial poetry 
book, and an underground 
book in 1966 about the trials of 
dissident writers Andrei Syn- 
yavski and Juli Daniel. He 
spent seven years in the 
Gulag-Soviet prison camps. 

Before being exiled, Ginz- 
berg was involved actively in 
different underground activi- 
ties. He administered a fund 
sponsored by Alexander Solz- 
henitsyn to help the families of 
the political prisoners. He also 
helped found and monitor the 
Helsinki Watch Committee. 
The latter quite disturbed the 
government since it matched 
with the antagonist Human 
Rights Campaign of former 
President Carter. 

Back in 1975, The Helsinki 
Agreement or Helsinki Ac- 
cords on European Security 
and Cooperation was accepted 
and signed by 35 countries 
including Canada. U.S. and 
the Soviet Union. The agree- 
ment provided rights for the 
people such as freedom of 
conscience, thought, religion, 
and better exercise of political 
and civil rights. 

Unfortunately, the Soviet 
government didn't accomplish 

the agreement. The Helsinki 
Watch Committee was organ- 
ized to pressure the govern- 
ment that caused a great deal 
of repression, harassment, 
and imprisonment of the 
members and supporters. 

Ginzberg represents one of 
the many lonely voices of the 
dissident cause. A dissident is 
defined as "a small group of 
discontented and articulate 

The Russian dissident 
movement represents various 

groups which advocate dif- 
ferent causes. For example, 
the technocrats tend to advo- 
cate liberal reforms; the intel- 
lectuals fight for greater crea- 
tive freedom; the ethnic 
Ukrainians fight for more 
national autonomy; the 
Georgian nationalists want 
more attention to their cultural 
heritage; the religious dis- 
senters advocate freedom of

The College According to Art Jordan! 


"Adventized: 1. to be 
converted into an acceptable 
form for Adventists 2. to be 
purified. 3. made holy" 
--Jordan's First Collegiate 

Strolling into the C.K., I 
order an adventized hambur- 
ger-Master Burger, they call 
it. After washing my meal 
down with soyamiik, ad- 
ventized milk, I wander over 
to the Village Market and 
purchase an authentic appear- 
ing bottle .of adventized wine. 
Tonight I will celebrate. 

And now, I would like to 
propose an adventized toast to 
the most recent breakthrough 
in adventized movies-Kramer 
vs. Kramer. Approved? Yes. 
Unedited? No. What your 
virgin eyes will see this Sun- 
day is guaranteed to be 
healthy, wholesome, and to- 
tally unblemished. When 
compared with couples saying 
good night in front of Thatch- 
er, this is gentle. 

"Tell me," you ask, "Who 
was considerate enough to 
adventize this film so that we 
can watch it in good con- 
science?" Allow me to intro- 
duce you to PUCFPC, short for 
Pacific Union Conference Film 
Preview Committee. This 
morally outstanding group is 
made up of representatives 
from Loma Linda University, 
Pacific Union Colli 

various academies and 
churches. They meet three or 
four times each year for a film 
previewing marathon to deter- 
mine which films are "Safe", 
which are not, and which can 
be adventized. 

The films previewed are 
those which have been se- 
lected by school administra- 
tors, church pastors, and con- 
ference youth leaders. How do 
they know what films are 
worth seeing? Don't ask so 
many questions. They know. 

Do you feel adventurous? 
Join me as I sneak into one of 



down and relax, the flick will 
begin soon. Don't look so 
shocked at seeing so many 
high-ranking church officials 
sitting around you. Who did 
I you expect to be previewing 
these films-radicals? 

Ah, I can see you're feeling 

of Pastor X to offer you some 
of his popcorn. Not only that, 
but I noticed that Elder Y 
bought you some root beer (no 
Coke permitted here). 

OK, the projector is rolling 
and we can settle back to take 
in the drama unfolding before 
us. Sure, I hope it's good, too. 
At least we didn't have to pay 
$3.50 to get in. 

Great Galilee's Gatesl 
Quick! Cover your eyes! I've 
heard of passionate scenes 
before, but this is the ultimate 

in PDA! Hey, I think we're 
causing a stir. We seem to be 
the only ones worried about 
maintaining the appearance of 
innocence. Be quiet so that 1 
can hear what that academy 
teacher is saying. Did I hear' 
right? He's not sure of the 
exact place where the film 
should be edited so he sug- 
gests that the projectionist run 
that scene by one more time. 
Surely somebody will dis- 
agree. But look! Everyone's 
head is bobbing up and down 
in obvious approval. Don't 
look so glassy eyed, it'l 

After the movie, the pre- 
view committee then decides 
what modifications to make 
and what ratine to give it. 
"Kramer vs. Kramer" was 
given an adventized " R" 
which means that it is for 
college/adult audiences only. 
No, I'm not joking. 

Finally, after a film has 
been previewed, edited, and 
rated, it is ready for the 
Adventist theater circuit of 
which our own SMC Cinema 
One is a part. 

I have two suggestions to 
make. First, why doesn't the 
Southern Union begin their 
preview committee so 
that we don't have to take 
California's word for. it. Se- 

cond, I wish to heartily recom- 
mend that I be nominated as 
SMC's representative to this 
committee. 1 feel that I could 
find enough time to run down 
to the conference office 
several times a year and gaze 
at a few flicks. Yes, it would 
be a sacrifice. But I feel 1 need 
to do more for my church. 

Actually, we may not need 
our own previewers. The 
PUCFPC has, to their credit, 
recommended that the Gen- 
eral Conference establish a 
committee to handle all the 
films for all of the unions. I 
think that's a good idea. After 
all, the brethren in Takoma 
Park don't have the chance to 
view the unedited films in the 
theaters like many of the 
laymen do. Or do they?

Wisdom from Kings & Wiseman 

They strutted in, adorned in 
their finery. Tigers with sleek, 
shiny coats. Zebras sporting 
alternating stripes. Giraffes 
with telescopic necks, craning 
towards the sky. The mon- 
keys, swinging from tree to 
tree, dropped to the ground 
and arrived with a thud. 
Finally, all the animals had 
arrived at the designated ren- 
dezvous in the jungle, 
the designated rendezvous in 
the jungle. 

Lines of concern marked 
every face. The animals had 
come together to decide a very 
important matter: to formulate 
a plan to honor the King of the 
Beasts. For the first time since 
any of the animals could 
remember, the Great Lion was 
returning to His jungle, and in 
a rare display of unity they 
had called this meeting. They 
all desired to give glory to 
their King. 

The council spawned heated 
debate. Each animal was in- 
tent on pontificating his own 
opinion. A tawny tiger spoke 

"My fine companions," 
said he, "I would be for 
honoring the King in this way; 
We should kill all the weaker 
animals for a sacrifice , to 
pacify His anger." 

A small giraffe, fearing for 
his own skin, was quick to 
point out the fallacy in this 
reasoning. "No! Nol" he 
shouted. "Out King is not 
coming in anger, but in love." 

A zebra felt compelled to 
state his plan. "There is only 
one way to give glory to our 
King," he said. "You must all 
strip off your "skin and clothe 
yourselves in the most attrac- 
tive way. When the King 
comes. He will appreciate all 
the agony you went through to 
look nice for Him." The zebra 
spoke very smugly, for he was 
confident that his beautiful 
striped coat would be selected 
as the standard for the 

But a young antelope was 

quick to rebut this view. "Thatl 
won't work either," he said.) 
"Our King does not look i 
the outward appearance, He f 
looks on the heart. ' ' The other I 
animals concurred, for they I 
did not wish to skin them- 
selves and exchange their coat 1 
for that of the zebra. 

The council was now dead- 
locked. Even though each of 
the animals ardently desired 
to honor his coming King, 
none was willing to sacrifice 
his own individuality. Could 
anyone break the stalemate? 

At the height of the dilem- 
ma, a small lamb walked shyly 
out of the jungle and into the 
circle of animals. His tardi- 
ness was overlooked, but his 
attire caused quite a stir. The 
skin of a lion draped loosely 
over his small body. 

The animals pounced on 
him at once. "How dare 
you ? ' ' roared the tiger. 
"Attempt to imitate my King, 
will you?" The zebra also 
joined the chorus of excited 
voices. "This blasphemous 
masquerader is worthy of 
death." No one spoke in favor 
of the poor creature, and he 
was quickly bound in prepara- 
tion for the execution. 

As the animals picked up 
stones to end the life of the 
young Iamb, the loud roar of a 
lion thundered across the 
forest. The King had arrived. 
After untying the boilds 
securing the frightened lamb, 
He spoke with a mighty voice 
which rolled through the 
jungle like the sound of many 

"I have comel And 1 see 
that no one was interested in 
honoring Me, no one except 
the young lamb. You said you 
wanted to give Me glory, but 
in reality, all you wanted to do 
is to glorify self. But the little 
lamb loved Me so much, he 
wanted to be like Me. Imita- 
tion is the highest form of 
honor!" And with that the big 
Lion pawed the turf, roared 
once more, and disappeared 
into the forest.

The newly released SMC hostages wave triumphant- 
ly for network cameras. After hours of grueling oral 
and written interrogations and being forced to sit on 
hard wooden seats without food or water or even 
communication with fellow hostages, they were finally 
set free. Pictured in the background is the embassy

-Smart Remarks: 


Oh there's nothing better than being loved and 
appreciated by your fans. Yes, they are the ones that 
eagerly snatch for that fresh Accent, never have doubts as 
to whether there will be one out this week or not, probably 
send one home to the folks to show off then- school s hne 
talent, and above all, NEVER .criticize or say it's bonng 
without sufficient suggestions for its improvement. I d like 
to thank all of you who are our avid fans for this support. 
Well actually, not alLof you since all probably aren t our 
fans. I realize there are those who can't read English well, 
lost a contact now and then, would rather read Rosemary 
Roger's or Hugh Hefner's latest publishing, but then we 
all have our downfalls. But other than these, there aren t 
any who, well there are those who can't, or even worse 
than this, won't take a joke, refuse to recognize that 
several of us weren't sent directly from the "perfect 
mold" so we do make occeasional typing errors, 
consistently ignore our efforts to print up-to-date statistics 
On basketball games or registration counts, and yes, our 
thanks to all of you who still, 8 months after school has 
been in session, remain baffled as to whether we put out 
the Joker, whether we take the senior pictures for the year 
book, and whether, in fact, our room is the walk-in lunch 
room where you leave your carry-out half-empty and 
strewn all over the floor. Yes, we would like to thank youl 
And let me say "Hail" to those of you who walk by our 
door day after day and never come in to introduce yourself 
or even introduce us to you; nay, you stroll by just slow 
enough to crane your neck around the corner and stare in 
our little office with your hushed voices and popping eyes 
as though it were a small, exotic zoo in here which was 
responsible for the wild strains of sound that emit at odd 
hours from behind our closed door. 

And as if that weren't enough, we budget for 24 issues 
and put out 25 and what do we get in return? ' 'Why is this 
paper only 4 pages this week?" "Why aren't Dave's 
Trivia out all the time?" "Why weren't they here on 
Thursday instead of Friday, I always change my hamsters 
cage on Thursday?" and, "Why didn't the third word of 
the fourth paragraph in the second column on the fifth 
page of the 21st issue line up with the word directly across 
from it in the other column?" Holv Carumba l! 1 can't 
believe the gratitude and the appreciation gn^ the 
acknowledgment of all the hard work and long hours that 
you people bestow on us all the time. The fan mail and the 
flow of thanks never stops. Whether it matters that 1 am 
standing with a .03 GPA, haven't slept sjnce 1 can 
remember and my social life and student interaction are 
practically zero is neither here nor there, it's just all part 
of the life you lead after you give up the semi-normal one 
to put out a weekly student paper for the people you love 
so, I'd like to say thank you to all of you that have made 
this experience possible. ..Thank you, thank you, thank 
you, thank you,

The cafeteria of Southern

awarded the coveted "Golden 
Rolling-pin Trophy" for ex- 
cellence in innovative and 
creative cooking.

entries, the cafeteria will be a 
major influence in cuisine for 
the coming year. 

One of the creations that 
helped the school to clinch this 
honor was "nutty broccoli", a 
superb combination of diced 
broccoli, a delicate white 
sauce, chopped rare black 
pecans, and the crowning 
touch of herb croutons (it is 
attention to detail that contri- 
buted to the excellence of the 
cafeteria). Another such deli- 
cacy was "cheese-nut 
patties." This was perhaps 
the most versatile entree 
served. Not only are the 
delectable patties relishea

The College According Rat JordoiU 

When WSMC abruptly 
changed their programming 
recently, some students were 
angered and some were re- 
lieved. Most, however, didn't 
give a rip. 

They will now. WSMC is 
turning rock. Knowing that 
the reasons originally given 
for the change sounded flimsy 
and unbelievable, I was 
prompted to do some investi- 
gative reporting. This led to 
the discovery of some amazing 

"We were going to keep it a 
secret until the switch was 
completely made." Station 
Manager Don Self told me. 
"We feit that our listeners 
deserved a pleasant surprise. 
Self went on to explain that 
several members of the com- 
munity had threatened to 
withhold funds if the station 
didn't make a radical change. 
"We felt that the time was 
right anyway" he mentioned. 

Search for Killer Cobra 
Continues with Venom 

The search is still on for the 
notorious Collegedale killer 
cobra. According to the ever 
dihgent Collegedale police 
force. "All stops have been 
pulled. We will find the vile 
beast if we have to beat every 
inch of brush from here to 
Cleveland. And that's just 
what we're going to do, too!" 

A massive investigation is 
scheduled to take place in the 
near future for the man-de- 
vouring reptile. The police 
chief has announced that 
every able-bodied law enfor- 
cer will at exactly sunup line 
up and proceed to stride back 
and forth over each acre of 
Collegedale ground flailing 
'heir billy clubs at trees, 
Pushes, and flowers to coax 
out the venomous cold-blood- 
ed animal. 

"We at the police depart- 
ment will do our best to see 

that each citizen can walk the 
streets of Collegedale safely" 
stated the chief. 

Commissioner Greg Vital 
will also help lead out in this 
daring mission. "There are 
no ifs, ands. or buts about it. 
we WILL catch the snake! 

If this air-tight plan fails, a- 
nother reptile will be released 
that is of the opposite gender, 
enabling the police to track the 
escaped cobra down since all 
snakes are immediately at- 
tracted to one another, and 
hunt both of the killers down. 
Should this not work, a snake 
expert is now on 24-hour call 
and will be rushed to College- 
dale by Concord within min- 
utes of notification, or the 
cobra will run free forever, 
always stalking, never giving 
man, woman, or child one 
moment of peace or safety. 

Perry enthusiastically de- 
scribed to me some of the new 
ideas that are going to be 
initiated. "We're going to fill 
every hour with something 
that jumps, swings, rocks and 
boogies," Perry exclaimed.

selection of todav's sound.

A Candid Interview with a Prominent Person 

I am supposed to write an 
interview of a prominent 
executive here at school, so 
here I go. Let me first make 
clear that I'l

I can use an alias. Let's see- 
why don't we call him. 
name. Let's call him Frank. 

Now Frank has studied a 
great deal and has received a 
doctor degree in an American 
language similar to one 
spoken in England. Now I 
can't say what he does for a 
living, but, oh boy-being 
president of a big school is no 
easy job. 

Just think how many 
lectures, dinners, and 
banquets you would have to 
speak at if you were president 
of acoUege-of course, I'm not 
saying that this person I'm 
interviewing is the president 
of any college. 

Anyway- back to what I was 
saying before. I made an 
appointment with his 
secretary to talk with Frank. 
She said 1 could talk with him. 

I did. 

Because the occasion was 
formal, I put on socks with my 
docksiders (this is usually not 
done). With a pencil and pad 
in hand I placed a tape 
recorder on his desk. His 
office was real big and pretty 
with lots of big books and 

I looked around and I was 
wowed. "Boy," I thought, 
"this is real neat." You can't 
imagine all the big plaques he 
had on his wall. He said 

Shocked at his candidness, I 
took a picture of his sofa. It's 
pretty. You can come up to 
my room and see the 
picture. Anyway, back to 
what I was saying before. I 
didn't bother to waste any 
time. I got to the issues at 

"Frank," I asked in a stern 
voice, "is it really true that 
you have posed for pictures?" 

He became fidgety and 

As sweat ran down 
his brow in buckets. He 
answered, "Howdoyou 

"Because," I pointed as 1 
stood in a Victorian pose, "I 
can see the family portrait on 
your desk and there you are, 
my good man, in it." I then 
gleamed in satisfaction. 

His face went back to 
normal. And then he leaned 
back in his chair. The color 
came back to his face. I was 
confused as he began 
laughing wildly. His eyes 

wide with tears of joy in them 
sparkled. I wonder what he 
thought I meant. I can't 

Well, the interview lasted 
for a little bit. We didn't say 
much. We just looked at each 
other and read Beowulf. 
Actually, he read it to me. 
He's real good at that. 
Anyway, we talked and stuff 
like that. Overall, 1 guess the 
interview turned out good. He

: Distractions: 


Hi fans, it's me once again from beautiful Southern 
Missionary College. Last year, I brought you the Handy 
Dandy Guide to Inexpensive Dating. {See Twang April 1, 

This year, by popular request, I'll take my money saving 
devices one step further, and apply them to-The Handy 
Dandy Guide to Inexpensive Weddings. 

First of all, one must pass through my prep course on 
dating as a prerequisite for this one. (See Twang April 1, 
1980). This has been accomplished, there are several 
factors that you must consider. 

1^1 Should I get married? 

Many people have asked this question in the past, so 
don't think you are all alone. There are a few simple 
answers to this question. First you must find someone who 
will consent to marry you, and then decide whether 
marriage is right for you. Therefore you must ask yourself 
a very important question, "Should 1 get married?" 

Now, once this has been decided, the wedding must be 
planned! Here's where my expert advice should be of 
assistance. Please fill out this questionnaire to determine 
the type of wedding you would like to have. 

1. I have 
DNo money 
nSome money 

D A lot of money 
to spend. 

2. I want to spend it on

As you look back over the results of this questionnaire, 
reflect on your answers. If your answers indicate that you 
prefer things of more exquisite taste, so that your wedding 
looks normal, I'm sorry, but you are beyond help. If 
however, you find that you are constantly picking the 
cheapest way out, you have learned how to s 
bare necessities. And, should your incc 
you should remember where you learned such survival 
techniques, and send in your "Attitude of gratitude" 
check to me right away, so that I will have enough money 
to have a normal wedding.* Hope to hear from you soon.

The lecture by Alexander

day, March 25 at 8 p.m. was 
suddenly cancelled the day 
before the scheduled appear- 

A week earlier, Ginzberg's 
passport and other legal pa- 
pers were stolen while enroute 
to Paris by train. Without 
these papers he would not 
have been able to reenter 
France where he is now resid- 

Attempts to replace the 
passport took too long to 
enable Ginzberg to go ahead 
with the tour. He was sched- 
uled to speak at four other 
colleges before ending his 
visit to the US at SMC. 
renegotiations are now in 
progress to have Ginzberg 
visit the Campus on his next 
US tour in mid-April.

= Viewpoint 


The old adage "There's no rest for the weary" has a 
certain ring of truth to it. If a term paper isn't due then a 
quiz or exam must be studied for, if your room doesn't 
need vacuuming, then you have 81 pages of outside 
reading to plow through. Keeping up with everything 
seems impossible. Then there is the time you don't have 
for yourself. Who in college has time to spare for pesonal 
pleasures like reading, shopping, tanning, and sleeping? 

Because of this lack of time "off', one or several skip 
days should be included in the college schedule. Skip days 
are simply that--days on which students can legally skip 
classes and do things that they have been wanting to do. 
but couldn't because of the lack of time. (Ingathering day 
would not be considered as a skip day). The activities can 
pertain to on-campus or off-campus functions. Students 
can go shopping in Atlanta or they can catch up on their 
homework assignments. 

In colleges where skip day is a part of the routine, 
groups are transported to the county fair, a park for a 
picnic, or a shopping mall. 

Skip days allow students time to relax and have fun. as 
well as giving them a chance to climb out of their rut. 

Think about the possibilities and then talk to next year's 
SA officers about it. Everyone needs a skip day once in

Dear Accent: 

I would like to express my 
appreciation for the recent 
film, "Kramer vs. Kramer." 
shown on Sunday, March 29. 1 
thoroughly enjoyed the movie, 
and in case anyone labels me a 
chauvinist from my ensuing 
remarks, I did cry at the end. 

I feel the film dealt with 
several truths which would 
prove useful for any Christian 
college student. 1. Absolutely 
no relationship is immune to a 
lack of communication. Prob- 
lems must be mutually con- 
sidered, and the family must 
come first. 2. Along with the 
myth that women are inferior 
to men and that women should 
be confined to the home must 
also go the myth that men are 
cold, harsh, rough, and un- 
emotional as opposed to 
warm, demonstrative and 
gentle. Women can be just as 
successful behind a desk as 
men. but men can shuttle fi:om 
behind the desk to the front of 
the stove just as easily as 
women. Fatherliness is 

motherliness, yet the combi- 
nation of the two--while 
neither qualitatively or quan- 
titatively different one from 
the other-remains magically 
superior to either one alone. 
3. Divorce is not an isolated, 
non-Adventist phenomenon; it 
could happen to anyone. And 
the best way to decide what's 
best for the child is for the 
parents to work their marriage 
problems out and provide a 
home where the child would 
never have to leave to visit the 
other parent. 4. Stress, 
anxiety, and tension all re- 
main non-discriminatorv. 

These natural results of all- 
too-common life situations for 
many people are sufficient to 
encourage alcohol use or some 
other coping release. Alcohol 
was not glorified by its rare 
use in this film. We need to 
recognize people that are just 
as good as we are-but may 
not have been mercifully 
spared some problems as we 
have-needing our help and 

A few weeks ago I received 
an invitation to a party that 
was fn he nn a Wednesday. I 
received the invitation on a 
Thursday afternoon, the day 
after 'he partv. A friend of 
mine living in the older pan 
of the dorm received her 
invitation on Tuesday morn- 
ing. The invitations were post- 
marked the same day, so 
clearly the fault does not lie 
with the sender. 

I ask you, how much more 
effort does it take to get the 
annex mail out on time? What 
does it take to have a beter 
and more efficient system? 
Thank you, 
Nancy Beth Wooley

6/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/ April 2, 1981 

:View from the Stands 


The soccer season *his year 
would best be labled ihe year 
of the shoot out" since a 
majority of the games have 
ended in a tie and have had to 
be determined by a shoot out. 
"The week of the injuries" 
might be an appropriate cap- 
tion for the play two weeks 
ago. Brian Moores team, who 
was 2 and and in first place 
was probably hit the hardest. 
Greg Caracciolo, Moores's 
number one player, re-injured 
a knee and will most likely 
miss the remainder of the 
season. As if that wasn't 
enough, Moore also saw 
Byron Rouse suffer a leg 
injury which left his playing 
status questionable. Steve 


.vho 1 

. tied 

for first with Moore at 2 and 0, 
also had their scare when 
goalie Tedd Webster injured 

. Webster courageously played 
' the remainder of the game and 

led his team to victory in a 
shoot out. Kevin Cummings' 
team, who lost their first two 
games, also had a player get 
injured. Goalie Don Sweeney, 
suftered a badly bruised shin, 
leaving him questionable for 
play, something Cummings' 
team couldn't afford. Because 
of these injuries the league 
could be headed for a change 
in the standings. Several 
games have been played since 
the injuries. Steve Martins 
team gained sole possession of 
first place as they defeated 
Moore 3 to 2. The extent of 
Tedd Websters injuries were 
not enough to keep him out of 
play as he did a fine job in the 
net for Martin's team. It was

In floor Hockey the regular 
season has been completed so 
now it is into the playoffs. Bob 
Hamley's team took sole pos- 
sesion of first place last week 
when they defeated Tomer 6 
to 5 and built their record to 
4-0. Leonard, who had been 
lied for first, fell victim to the 
upset as Lewis defeated them 
by a single goal. That was last 
week and since then Hamley 
and Leonard have squared off 
against one another. In a hard 
fought battle it was Leonard 
finally prevailing 6 to 5. This 
victory gave these t\vo teams 
identical 4 and 1 records for 
the regular season. Rod 
Lewis's team picked up sever-

of the season and in their final 
game defeated Kevin Tomer's 
team to capture third place.

inirOSpCCT Wisdom from Kings & Wiseman 

Some of the best news in 
life is that intellectual religion 
is NOT where it's at. This is 
true for at least two reasons: 

First, intellectual religion 
proves to be incapable of 
answering the 'how' questions 
all are asking. HOW do I live 
the daily life of death, trage- 
dy, decisions, and overcoming 
sin? Mere theory and a 
legally obtained salavation ut- 
terly fails one when it comes 
to the 'how." "Pure and 
undefiled religion" (James 
1:27) is an experienced one. It 
is directed at answering how 
one lives life here on earth in 
the sight and fellowship of a 
holy God. 

A most aprt illustration of 
intellectual religion (also 
known as salvation by justifi- 
cation alone, apostate Protes- 
tantism, and, what you are 
taught from many of the 
•■great lights") is found out in 
the desert of California. As 
you approach it, your senses 
are captivated - it looks so 
good, so real! You walk 

through the streets admiring 
the appearance of one of 
Hollywood's old western 
towns. Finally, you choose a 
particularly interesting old 
building and approach the 
door. It swings open into ... 
the desert! Puzzled, you step 
through the door and find 
yourself surrounded by a 
shocking arrangement of hast- 
ily constructed two-by-fours, 
all of them propping up only a 
false front. It begins to daWN 
on you that this is not what it 
appears to be at all. There is, 
in reality, nothing here. 
Suddenly, you hear a distant 
roar that grows louder. 
Without warning, a great 
desert windstrom crashes 
upon the bogus western twon, 
and soon all is a pile of 
splintered wood heaped pa- 
thetically in the pretend 

Such is the truth about 
intellectual religion. In the 
face of the storm it can only be 

crushed. When it comes to 
'how' to weather life's crises, 
theory and legal salvation 
utterly fail you. All is pretend 
and intangible. 

The second reason intellect- 
ual religion is not where it's 
at, is found in the life of the 
greatest Experiencer earth 
has known. Jesus placed His 
hands upon a small child and 
called all to an experience of 

childlike trust and obedience. 
This means living by every 
word that proceeds from His 
mouth to your heart (Dt. 8:3). 
This is. simple acceptance of 
Scripture (His Word) as a 
personal love letter from your 
Father. This is taking His 
promises for victory over sin 
literally. A child relies upon 
his father for EVERYTHING. 
He does not philosophize and 

rationalize when his father 
promises to answer the 
'hows,' he just trusts him and 
accepts father's power and 
wisdom for each moment of 

Do you feel like a pile of 
splintered intellectual uncer- 
tainty? Are you afraid of the 
Strom to come? Are you only 
legally "saved? ' ' To you 
Father says, "Come."

During this past year of

increased up to 40 percent 
across the country. New York 
alone in the past year has had 
a murder count of 1.814 
victims. Los Angeles witnes-

nearly up to 13 percent in 
every violent category. Miami 
has battled over the ever-in-

has shot up by 60 percent and 
robberies by 80 percent. 

Statistics maintain that

B.K. Johnson: "We live

Too often many complacent 
Americans support the atti- 
tude that crime can never 
happen to them. Keisha 
Jackson probably thought so, 
too. Until one evening, after 
rollerskating with her friends 
and on her way back home, 
she was shot in the head by a 
sixteen-year-old boy with a .32 
caliber gun. No motive has 
been established. 

Steven Watts, a lineman for 
his high school team, was 
walking home one Friday 
after a dance. A street gang 
mistook him for a member of a 
rival gang and shot him from a 
car. Watts has hit in the back 
and died before he reached 
the hospital.

How is it that a country, 
where crazed lunatics make 
vicious attempts on human 
lives, can allow their Justice 
System to fail so often. TIME 
magazine has expressed it 

clearly in their March 23 issue 
on crime: "It is not that there 
are no mechanisms in place to 
deal with American Crime, 
merely that the existing ones 
are impractical, inefficient, 
uncooperative, and often lead 
to as muc civic destruction as 
they are meant to curtail." 
Our country's stand against 
crime should be strong and 
forceful. Vague technical 

terpretation of human rights 
must end. Stern retribution 
must be the consequence any 
law-breaker should face.

Shorts are comfortable, since there is 1

how wearing shorts in the cafeteria line could possibly 
lessen someones appetite for the delicious fare served

all the live long day, but at least let those so dressed get a

Students speak out about dorm incident 

This letter has been written 
by concerned individuals in 
to the incident that 
occurred in the Talge recrea- 
n the evening of 
March 31. This incident as we 
are sure you already know, 
involved Bruce Earp and 
Michael James, students of 
our "fair" school. 

According to the latest gos- 



sip, (which, 
Webster's Seventh New Col- 
legiate Dictionary means "a 
person who habitually reveals 
personal or sensational facts, 
and/or chatty talk) Bruce Earp 
only committed a small mis- 
demeanor (figuratively speak- 
ing, of course) while Michael 
James is a hardened criminal. 
But what makes these rumors 
rather irritating is the fact that 
they are coming from those of 
you who do not know the 
FACTHOr should we say the 
truth? Either way. it reveals 
that except for a chosen few. 
no one knows what they're 
talking about. All it boils down 
to is people getting aroused 
over cheap hearsay. Is this the 
way facts are issued? Two 
people are in the same place at 
the same time, supposedly 
witnessing the same incident 

and both persons wind up with 
a completely different story 
from the other. How can this 
be? What is one to think? 
Well, we can only draw on 
sound conclusion: one of them 
is lying. And if we may ask, 
what is the purpose behind it? 
We say it is ignorance verging 
on immaturity, grown men 
and women who have nothing 
better to do than stab someone 
in the back! Are we coming 
on too harshly? Well. good. 
Let us continue by saying that 
if this is your portrayal of 
Christianity, it is a poor one. 

Let us also clear the air by 
saying that we are not con- 
doning the action Michael 
took. What he did was wrong 
and by no means godly. But 
who are vou to place blame? 

We have heard many 
around campus say, "He de- 
serves whatever he gets." 

"He wasn't any good any- 

"He always tried to be Mr. 
Tough Guy." 

"That's good for him." 
We could go on and on. 
These statements were made 
by those who disliked him as 
well as those that claimed to 
be his friends. 

So, are we to understand 
that Mr. James, according i£ 
the behavior expressed or 
campus by his supposed 
Christian brothers and sislefi. 
loses all the way around? 

It seems to us that one oi 
God's children is in need rf 
help, love, and undersianH;

my appreciation to everyone 
who has used the recreation 
facilities as well as partici- 
pated in the intramural 

Intramurals have been suc- 
cessful because of the time 
you have chosen to invest in 
each particular activity. 
Sportsmanship has been 
excellent which is a tribute to 
each of you! 

At the Rees Series my wife. 
Carmen, and 1 were pleasantly 
surprised when Doug Price 
beckoned us to the micro- 
phone and presented us with 
over S120 of your hard earned 
money. The support and 
friendship that we felt at that 
particular moment was and 
still is very rewarding. 

Time and space do not allow 
me to give special recognition 
to the many people who have 
put in long and hard working 
hours helping me plan and 
organize the recreational act- 
ivities. It would suffice to say 
that you are all appreciated

"Sure, Keith. It's not like I have 
anything better to do." 

The Student Association's final event is 
now in its last stages. The last slides are 
being developed, and all the technical 
equipment has been ordered and assenv 
bled. The Strawberry Festival (SF) is 
I about to begin. 

"Doug, are you using last year's tape 
format on the 4-track recorder or are you 
going to put sync pulses on 3?" Keith 

Doug Walter, the audio engineer, 
turned from the board and answered, 
"No, I think we'll use 3 as a buffer and 
put the sync pulses on 4 instead. I think 
I'll mix the narrator in on 1 and 2 to create 
a stereo effect. Keith, do you have a 
sequence list so I can record the sound 
track as the sections go?" 

"I have a basic list that you can look 
over, but when it comes down to time 
we'll just fade the visual and audio black 

This year, the SF will include over

The SF is a multi-media production, 
that is, it consists of a programmer which 
controls 15 slide projectors, 3 screens, 
and a sound system. This is the third 
annual multi-image SF production. In 
1979, the program consisted of 2 projec- 
tors. Last year the projector numtjer 
Increased to 6. This year the numlDer of 
projectors has expanded to 15 due to the 
development of special effects. 

"Zooming, neon glow effect, marquee 
lighting, and animation are a few of the 
new techniques we plan to incorporate 
into the new program" Keith explained. 
Time: 4:30 a.m. 

Setting: Six people: one sleeping [snoring 
softly]; two double-checking slide 
sequences in slow motion; one doing 
homework futilly; one finishing the last of 
the Doritos and DP; one replacing burnt 
projector bultis. 

"If I have to see this show one more 
time you won't need all this equipment, 
I'll just mime it." 

Suddenly the little angel sleeping in the 
comer jumps up raving, "The timing's 
off, the timing's off, stop projector. Fix 
that slide. Focus, focus. Hey, that slide is 
upside down. Get another bulb for 
projector 4!" 

"Quick! Someone slap Keith before he 
gets too hysterical." 


"What happened?" 

"Nothing, dear. It was just a bad 
dream. It's all over now, the project is 
finished. You can so back to sleep. 

"Okay, [sigh] If only Kodak could see 
me now." 

"Yes, Keith. Anything you say." 

"Hey, can I have my strawberries and 
ice cream now?" 

The SF will be Saturday, April 25 at 8 
p.m. in the P.E. Center. There is a 
possibility of two showings if enough 
students and faculty wish to see it over. 
The second showing will start after the 
strawberries and ice cream are served. 

The same production will be shown on 
Saturday night of graduation weel<end. 
Check graduation bulletins for time. 

On the SF evening, all ID card holders 
are allowed in free. For those who don't

sView from the Stands: 



The annual SMC racquetball 
tournement was concluded 
last week. On Friday Rowland 
Knight made his now familiar 
appearance in the finals as he 
went up against Ron Shaffer. 
Knight had won the tour- 
nement the past two years and 
was on to make it his third 
straight championship but 
Shaffer had other ideas. In 
the first game it looked as 
though Knight was still the 
dominate player as he won 
easily 21 to 8. Being the 
competitor that he is Shaffer 
didn't waste any time in 
letting knight know that it 
wouldn't be that easy. He 
turned the momentum around 
and won the second game 21 
to 7 giving each player 1 win 
with one game to go. The two 
players decided to make elev- 

en the winning score in the 
rubber game of the match. 
With both players eyeing the 
championship they soon found 
themselves in a 8 to 8 tie. 
From there Rowland Knight 
managed to take charge and 
went on to in the game 11 to 9, 
giving him the match and his 
third straight SMC racquetball 


The doubles tennis tour- 
nement has advanced towards 
the final match. In one 
semi-final match the team of 
Dean Evans and Dean Qualley 
advanced to the finals when 
they defeated Tim Arelanno 
and Steve Fitzgerald 6-4,6-4. 
Still to be played is the other 
semi-final match which has 

20 percent off!

This past Sunday SMC had 
its annual spring gold tour 
nement. Despite some ad- 
verse wet conditions eight four 
man teams still made it out to 
play in the select shot tour- 
nement held at Valley Brook 
Country Club. The student 
team had won the tournement 
in the fall with a 10 under par 
total at Nob North Golf Course 
and they were back to defend 
their championship. The eight 
teams in the tournement con- 
sisted of several area church 
teams, (McDonald. Chattano- 
oga. Ooltewah) a Deans team, 
a college faculty team, an 
academy faculty team, an 
alumni team and the student 
team. The conference had a 
team in the fall but had to 
cancell out this time. At the 
end of the day it was the 
student team making it two 
championships in a row with a 
winning seven under par total. 

Ooltewah finished second at 
six under with several teams 
tieing for third at four under 
par. Each member of the 
winning team was awarded a 
shirt and a sleeve of 3 golf 
balls. Other prizes were 
handed out for closest to the 
pin and the longests drive on 
designated holes. There were 
5 closest to the pins and two 
longest drives. Members of 
the winning student team 
were Matt Nafie. Bucky 
Knecth, Dick Bird and Kelly 
Pettijohn. Thanks to Dean 
Qualley for a well run tour- 


This Sunday (April 12) at 5:00 
SMC will hold its spring swim 
meet. The meet will consist of 
two teams with both men and 
women events. Captain of one 
team will be Kevin Cum- 
mings. This team will be led 
by Chris Scholz who is favored 
in the 50 yard free style and 
Rowland knight who is the 
current school record holder in 
the back stroke. This team 
also has strong help from their 
women as Tamara Dortch, 

current record holder of the 
womans 50 yard free style and 
Sandra Borne, favored in 
some of the girls events, will 
both be swimming for this 
team. Dale Breece will be the 
captain of the other team and 
he will be challanging the 
school record in the quarter 
mile currently held by Loren 
Middage who is also on that 
team and favored in the men's 
diving. Spectators are wel- 
come as there will be seats to 
watch from set up along side 
the pool in the SMC gym. 


IntrOSpeCtWisdom from Kings & W 

April 9. 1981/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 


Misconception of the human 
mind have occurred quite 
frequently down through his- 
tory. For example, a few 
centuries ago it was commonly 
believed that the world was 
flat. Unwilling to look at 
evidence to the contrary, the 
people had a great fear that if 
someone should travel too 
near the edge of the earth, he 
would be in danger of falling 
off. However, later discover- 
ies proved these views of the 
world to be false. 

As Seventh-day Adventists. 
we have sometimes fallen into 
the same trap. We have been 
guilty of fostering misconcep- 
tions in certain areas of theo- 
logy. By studying the Bible 
and the Spirit of Prophecy in a 
random, haphazard method, 
we have jumped to some 
wrong conclusions. I would 
like to discuss a few of these 
myths relating to last day 

selves "do nothing". This 
myth also contradicts the clear 
teaching of scripture which 
states, "And I will ask the 
Father, and He will give you 
another Helper, that He may 
be with you forever." (John 
14:16, NASB). Even after 
probation has closed, the 
Spirit will still be with us. 
This is a comforting thought. 

While we do believe that 
everyone who is translated 
will have been brought to a 
decision of whether to follow 
God's law by worshiping on 
the Sabbath or man's law by 
keeping the first day holy, it 
does not follow that they will 
all be baptized members of the

For the fall 

1981, the History Departi 
will introduce a new upper 

course called Origins of Mod- 
ern Political Thought, 1500- 
1850 (PLSC 465). Taught by 
Brian E. Strayer. this three- 
credit hour course will survey 
several primary political trea- 
tises written by such philo- 
sophers as Machiavelli, 
Hobbes, Locke, Burke, Paine, 
Rousseau, Jefferspn, J.S. Mill 
and Karl Marx. Designed to 
acquaint the junior and senior 
student with the political the- 
orists of modern democracy, 
dictatorship, socialism and 
communism, this class will 
emphasize a close analytical 
reading and discussion of at 
least twelve major political 
works from Machiavelli's The 

Prince (1532) to Karl Marx's 
Communist Manifesto (1848). 

Unlike most history courses 
at SMC. this new one will not 
include quizzes, tests or term 
papers. Rather, the student 
will be asked to write weekly 
"reaction reports" of two 
pages discussing and inter- 
preting the major documents 
being studied. Class discus- 
sion will also comprise a major 
portion of the grade. It is 
recommended that prospec- 
tive students for this course 
have taken at least one semes- 
ter of Survey of Civilization, 
preferably the second half. 
Since this course will follow 
the format of a readings 
seminar, the student should 
expect to do considerable 
reading each week.

who is it who decides just what I can no longer keep silence, that to me, I wonder how

Let's begin by studying the 
facts and then seeing what the 
law has to say about the 
actions taken by Mr. James. 
Mr. James obtained posses- 
sion of a pool stick and then on 
his own accord proceeded to 
strike the recipient of the blow 
across the bridge of the ros;, 
causing extensive damage to 
the nasal canals, and requir- 
ing seventeen stitches up 
across the left eye brow. Just 
what does the law say? 

In my studies of the penal 
code, I find that the actions 
taken by Mr. James have the 
following reprocutions as far 
as the law is concerned: 

1) Assault and Battery. 

Assault defined-An assault is 

unlawful attempt, coupled 

present ability, to 

commit a violent injury on one 

person or another. Battery 

defined-A battery is any will-

According to Art Jordan! 

April 16, 1981/THE SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

I am awakened by the 
buzzing of my electric alarm 
clock. It's 4 a.m. Roiling out 
of bed (I forget that I'm on the 
top bunk), I crawl to the 
shower and turn it on full hot; 
it comes out full cold. 

By 8 a.m. my roommate has 
found my frozen body and has 
begun to revive me with an 
ice pick and his hair dryer. 
When 8:30 arrives I'm ready 
to go--just in time to skip 
breakfast and be 40 minutes 
late to my first class. 

Four tests, three quizzes, 
and one fire drill later, I 
collapse in front of my type- 
writer and prepare to write 
my last column. 

But alas! There's nothing 
to write about! The weather's 
been nice, there are no edited 
movies scheduled, and the 
student finance office actually 
released me after kindly dis- 
cussing my finances with me. 
Even the fences by the cafe- 
teria are now gone. It's true 
that the CK still serves Sam's 
Chicken Sandwiches along 
with other 95 percent grease 
items. And yes. you still 
aren't supposed to wear jeans 
around campus until after 5 
p.m. But at least you can wear 
a comfortable pair of jeans 
while choking down food at 
the CK. One out of two is not 

From E. 0. Grundset to 
Mrs. Moore, from standing in 
mile long lines to eating mile 
high salads, from talking to a 
cobra to examining Project 
Matrimony-it's all been fun 
to write about. 

Then, of course, there's 
next year. There will be new 
causes to crusade for-or 

against. Who knows? Maybe 
we will see the triumphal 
return of the saxophone 
quartet. Maybe new fences 
will be erected with barbed 
wire on them. Maybe next 
year double knits wilt be 
outlawed. Whatever the case, 
I'll be back and the writing 
will begin again. 

Someone recently asked 
me, "Art, if SMC has so 
many things for you to write 
safire about, why do you even 
bother to go to school here?" 
That's a good question. I 
guess it's in my blood. 

Ed. Note: We regret to report 
that Art Jordan will 

returning next year as had 
previously been planned. 
Shortly after writing this 
column he met a tragic death 
while eating at the CK. Some 
reports indicate that he may 
have overdosed on Sam's 
Chicken Sandwiches. 

Funeral services will be 
conducted at noon on Mon- 
day. April 20. by the pre- 
viously fenced in area on the 
Talge side of the cafeteria. E. 
0. Grundset will officiate. 

All students are invited to 
attend. It is asked, out of 
respect for Art. that you wear 
blue jeans to the service. 
Refreshments will be served 
and an edited movie will be

Gymnastics Tour Ends at 


After a very successful win- 
ter and spring tour, which 
included several preformances 
in Mexico, Alabama. Florida 
and North Carolina, the 1980- 
81 SMC Gymnastic Team 
closed out the season with its 
annual home show. 

It is the opinion of many 
that the SMC Gymnastic Team 
is currently the best in the 
denomination and the talent 
witnessed by students, par- 
ents, and community this past 
Saturday night gave support 
to this opinion. 

Every team member had 
his part in the outstanding 
program, so to all, congratula- 
tions for your terrific perfor- 
mance. We would like to 
mention the names of those 


the ho 

show as their last chance to 
perform as a member of the 
SMC Gymnastics Team and to 
let them know their presence 
will be missed. They are: 
Marcia Stiles, who did a 
doubles and triples routine, 
and performed on the un- 
evens; Dennis Thompson, who 
took part in five power events 
and was outstanding with the 
blocks and the roman chair, 
just to mention two; Rick 
Giebell. who did a routine on 

the side horse and was a major 
statute in the team pyramids; 
and Krystal Norris, who per- 
formed in a triples routine and 
on the unicycle. A special 
congratulations is in order for 
Marcia and Dennis for being 
selected to Who's Who among 
college students in America. 
In closing, behind every 
good team is a good coach and 
to show their appreciation, 
Loren Middag, on behalf of all 
the team members, presented 
a warm-up suit to their fine 
coach, "Wonderful Garv." 


The floor hockey season has 
concluded and down the 
stretch it turned into a two 
team race for the champion- 
ship. The team of Bob 
Hamley, and the team of Bob 
Leonard were battling for first 
plate all season long, so it 
couldn't have been more ap- 
propriate than to have these 
two teams face each other in 
the final game of the season, 
and that is precisely what 

At the start of the game, 
Leonard's team seemed to be 
the favorite due to the absense 
of Hamley, who had led his 

team all season long How 
ever, when the first period 
came to a close Hamley' s 
team was leadmg 1 to 
Hamley showed up early in 
the second period and his 
team soon had a 2 to lead 
Leonard's team was able to 
overcome the slow start and 
bounced back with a couple of 
second period goals 

At the end of regulation 
time, the score was 3 to 3 and 
the players unanimously 
agreed to leave the game a tie 
So, in floor hockey, you have 
Hamley and Leonard as co 
champions with 5 wins, 1 loss 
and 1 tie. Behind them are 
Shields and Lewis with 3 and 4 


There is one big soccer 
game left which will deter- 
mine the champion of the 
league. On Thursday, at 5:30 
p.m. Brian Moore's team, 
currently 5 and 1. will face 
Steve Martin's team, who 
have a 4 and 2 record. The 
two teams battled to ^ 4 to 3 
score in a game Tuesday 
night, which saw Moore come 
out on top. In that came, 
Moore's team was led by the 
excellent pass work of Mike 
Dowell and Willy Hernandez. 
Kevin Cummings' team is 
currently in third place and 
Tony Fasillas is in fourth. 
Don't forget to come out and 
watch the championship this 


The SMC Spring Swim 
Meet was held this past 
Sunday and it was Kevin 
Cummings' team winning by a 
score of 61 to 54 over Dale 
Breece's team. Although 
Breece's team took eight first 
places. Cummings' team was 
able to combine six first places 

seconds and 
thirds to pick up more total 

Tamara Dortch was the only 
double winner in the meet as 
she took first in the women^s 
50 yard free style and the 
■women's 50 yard back stroke. 

Two new school records 

; set. 

1 the I 

yard free style and one in the 
women's 50 yard breast 
stroke. It was Stu Ware with a 
time of 25.2 setting the new 
record in the men's 50, smash- 
ing the old mark by a full 
second. Sandra Borne swam a 
40.7 second women's 50 yard 
back stroke to break the old 
mark and established a new 
school record. 

In the diving, Loren Middag 
took first in the men's compe- 

tition, while Nancy Richards 
captured first in the women's. 
Winners of other events 
included: Chris Scholz, Dale 
Breece, Lynn Wissman, Glen 
Gretnlee, Flip Bottomley, and 
Tedd Webster. 


In tennis, the finals are set 
for both the championship and 
the consolation rounds of the 
Doubles Tournament. In the 
shampionship match, it will be 
Dean Evans and Dean Qualley 
going against Ken Slate and 
Greg King. 

The consolation round 
match will be between the 
team of Buck Schultz and Jeff 
Garibaldi and the team of Ned 
Velasco and Bob Leonard.

Introspect Wisdom from Kings & Wisemans 

It's truly amazing that God 
desires to rule in every con- 
ceivable part of your life. 
Indeed nothing is too insigni- 
ficant for Him. Following, is a 
potpourri of various ways m 
which the Lord would enter 
vour life and help you this 

God knows how busy your 
have been and He would 
certainly like to help you find 
more quiet time alone with 

Him each day. In fact. He 
would like it better if you 
would consciously include 
Him in all your thoughts and 
actions during your entire day. 

God also is anxious that you 
sit down with Him and ser- 
iously discuss that marriage 
you have planned. He would 
like to be the centerpiece of 
your love. 

The Lord would really enjoy 
giving you a new opinion of 

what is actually important in 
this life. In more direct words, 
He would be thrilled if you 
would allow Him to give you a 
realization that movie theaters 
and disco skating rinks, ect.. 
are not His territory. He does 
not consider the things that go 
on there to be pure, holy, and 
of heaven. 

Jesus understands how 
worried people get about 

finding jobs, for He once had 
to work here too. So He would 
be most happy for you to trust 
Him completely to find you a 
place of work for the s 

The melancholy days have come, the 

Saddest of the year, 
Of wailing winds, and naked winds, 

and meadows brown and sear. 

Another possibility that God 
might have for you is a new 
look at dating. He knows that 
the typical way of American 
dating is frustrating, because 
usually Christ is not the main 
partner in the relationship. 
Consider that t 



His plan for dating. 

Consider also that the Lord is 
in need of someone through 
whom He can touch your 
family with His love. You 
might be surprised at how 

little they really know and love 

Finally, please remember as 
you enter this summer, that 
everything around you is vir- 
tually shouting the fact that 
Jesus is about to return to this 
earth in judgment for the 
rebellious, and rescue for the 
surrendered ones who live 
with Him in daily fellowship 
and obedience. Then pause a 
moment longer to recall that, 
if you are not living each 
moment of every day in Jesus' 
presence while here on earth, 
there is no way you would be 
comfortable living in His pre- 
sence for eternity in heaven. 
Ultimately, that is what Jesus 
wants to do with you' this 
share His presence.

I was walking in front of 
Thatcher Annex Friday eve- 
ning and was disturbed to see 
students arriving from town, 
joking and laughing, carrying 
armloads of packages fully 45 
minutes after sundown. 1 
know that not everybody 
thinks the way I do, and I 
don't mean to impose my 
values on others, but 1 wish 
the students at SMC would 
come to see the beauty and the 
importance of the beginning of 
the Sabbath. I think they miss 
a lot by continuing their daily 
activities past the time God 
has set aside as His. 1 so much 
look forward to the release and 
relaxation that comes at sun- 
down on Friday, and 1 know 1 
wouldn't get it if I were 
driving around in town or 
whatever. The answer 
gislation. Required wo 
or rules imposed by the oeaiib 
would not help, and I would 
resent them. It should be the 
choice of the individual, I wish 
the students would choose not 
to miss the beauty God wants 
us to share with Him.
