Though the actual funds 
allotted to SMC remain the 
same, with the current rate of 
inflation this would resuH in a 
50 percent reduction in funds 
over a five year period. Dr. 
Knittel predicts lower enroll- 
ments in all of our denomina- 
tional colleges this year. 

Although initial figures are 
down somewhat. Dr. Knittel is 
optimistic that by the second 
semester enrollment will be 
up to last year's figure when 
some 400 students dropped 
out before the spring session 

When asked how the de-

There will be no pool table, no

According to Everett Sch-

changes were made in view of 
"concern expressed by some 
constituents over the direction 
the college was heading."

faculty and administration 
thought that "some students 
appeared to become addicted 
to these game machines"-and 
the frequent movies shown on

It used to be that journalism was simply a tool m the hand of 
the reader that was used to assist in the formation of good 
decisions. The information would be supphed by the mass 
media, and the reader, viewer or Hstener would have all the 
necessary facts needed for making intelligent choices. 

Those days are gone. Now it all depends on the slant the 
editors and the publishers take-whether it be with regard to 
political, religious or cultural events. Power of the press was 

What happened to pure journalism? It has become a casualty- 
of greedy and power-seeking men in high places. 

In the midst of all the super giants who control thoughts and 
decisions, it wouldn't seem that our one small college 
newspaper could do much to influence a change. Perhaps it 
can't. But to stick to the facts and bring back one of those basic 
antiquities that served as a decision-making tool would be a 
testimony to the reader, no matter how small a percentage of 
the population, that pure journalism is not extinct. 

Beyond that: To relay the facts-the unslanted facts-to the 
student body of Southern Missionary College would show the 
Accent's faith and truth in the thinking ability of our college 
students. So here's the plan: 

1 . We will attempt to supply a paper that is factually accurate, 

2. We will supply any news that is important information for 
assisting students in decision making. 

3. We will work on fulfilling the above two policies in a 
journalistic manner that insures high quality. 

4. We will, as a secondary purpose, include items to not only 
inform, but to entertain. 

This will not all be easy. To meet these goals will mean 
work-hard work. 

Here's your part! To help maintain a newspaper that is in 
keeping with what students are interested in reading, you can 
make us aware when we are failing you. the reader. We may 
make mistakes, but we will be willing to correct our errors. 

Here's to a year of thought provocation, consideration and 
, Here's to you-the reader.

The ad rates are also being 
raised this year, a fact that 
Seaman defends as necessary 
and fair. "The quality of the

also have added two additional

"This is being done as a

September 3, 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 


While teaching at Princeton 
University, Albert Einstein 
filled the blackboard in his 
classroom with long and com- 
plicated equations. At the 
close of each session he left 
instructions for the janitor who 
cleaned the room. Across the 
numerals, signs of square 
roots, and cubes-across ev- 
erything- he wrote the word 
"ERASE." But in one corner 
of the board, by the simple 
equation 2 — 2 = 4, he put 
'■DO NOT ERASE!" Einstein 
did not want his students to 
forget the foundation upon 
which all mathematical equa- 
tions were based. Moses also 
desired to teach this lesson of 
remembering to his people 
just before they were to cross 
into Canaan. In an effort to 
help them remember the pur- 
pose and reason for being 
where they were, he said, 
■ 'Take heed lest you forget the 
Lord your God." Deut. 8:11, 

The principle of Einstein's 
blackboard and the warning of 
Moses contain a significant 
lesson for us today which 
affects three areas of our life, 
h is significant for us as INDI- 
VIDUALS. In the high-paced 
schedule of college life, we 
can be so easily caught up in a 
time trap. We must study to 
make the grades and work to 
pay the bills, and we can soon 
discover that time for God is 
lessened or put off until a 
convenient season. We may 
even become so busy in 
"good" extracurricular activ- 
ities that our priorities get 
mixed up and we forget the 
purpose of our stay on earth. 
We must take heed as in- 
dividuals lest we forget the 
Lord our God. 

It is also significant for us as a 
SCHOOL. In a year when 
enrollment records of the past 
will not be broken, can we 
become so concerned with the 
waning numbers that the prin- 
ciples of Christian education 
are pushed into the back- 
ground? And, in a year when 
SMC will be evaluated, can we 
be so concerned with our 
academic and scholastic rat- 
ings that they become the 
chief object of our concentra- 
tion? We as a school need to 
take heed lest we forget the 
Lord our God. 
Finally, it is significant for us 

as a CHURCH. The Jews are 
often pointed to as an example 
of those who forgot the Lord 
their God. They had the 
Scriptures and the prophecies, 
but they were so busy defining 
the fine points of the law that 
they didn't recognize the Law- 
giver when He came. We 
today have the danger of 
falling into the same trap of 
majoring in minors. 

As the remnant church we 
have the last message to be 
preached to the world. We are 
the church that keeps the 
commandments of God and 
has the testimony of Jesus 

Christ. But can we become so 
tied up in syntax (study of 
word structures) that we for- 
get the Creator of all lan- 
guage? Can we be so busy 
trying to prove our theological 
standpoints that we fail to 
obtain and maintain a relation- 
ship with God? Will we be so 
intent on knowing the signs of 
the end that when it comes, 
we won't know the Savior? 
We as a church must take 
heed lest we forget the Lord 
our God. 

As individuals let us study 
hard and work hard. Let us 
get involved in helping others 

and having a good time, but 
let's not forget the One who 
gives us the strength to do 
these things. As a school, let 
us strive for the highest 
academic success, improve 
our buildings and expand our 
curriculum, but let us keep the 
Founder of Christian educa- 
tion in focus. And as a church 
let us keep searching for a 
better and clearer under- 
standing of truth, but not 
forget the Rock upon which we 

Take heed lest you forget the 
Lord your God.

Griffin and Linderman remembered 

One Southern Missionary 
College staff member and one 
SMC student were killed this 
summer in two separate auto- 
mobile accidents. 

Daina Griffin, a nursing 
student, lost her life in Win- 
slow. Arkansas, on July 11, 
1981. A memorial service for 
Daina, daughter of Elder and 
Mrs. Jim Griffin, was held in 
the Shreveport First church on 
Sabbath afternoon. July 11. 

An excerpt from a letter 
Daina's parents sent to Col- 
lege Chaplain Jim Herman 
Thank you so much for the 
expressions of sympathy 
and compassion at the time 

of Daina's death. We appre- 
ciated the beautiful plant, 
the flowers from the Stu- 
dent Association, the tele- 
phone calls and the letter. 
Please convey our thanks to 
the staff members who had 
a part in all of this. 

Marion Linderman, public 
service librarian at the McKee 
Library since 1962, was killed 
on July 5, 1981 near Cross- 
ville, Tennessee. 

In giving the eulogy. Dr. 
Frank Knittel remembered: 
She was a sympathetic 
counselor, and it is the 
person of Mrs. Linderman 
that we cherish in our 
memories. Unfailingly kind, 
unflinchingly professional. 

she had the rare gift of 
synthesizing her total life 
with spiritual values. We 
never saw her cross, we 
never heard her impatient, 
we always saw in her a rea- 
sonable facsimile of our 
Lord. We remember with 
love and treasure the mem- 
ory with tears.

Time Out 

SMC's (ennis (ournameni begin 

The sports scene is taking 
shape at Southern Missionary 

Coach Stephen Jaecks is 
very optimistic about this 
year's softbali intramurals. 
Both A and B league fast pitch 
teams were picked this week 
as well as several slow pitch 
learns. More than 350 softbali 
enthusiasts signed up this 
year, surpassing last year's 
totals. Get out and cheer your 
favorite team on; times and 
teams are posted at both 
dorms and the gym. 

The last day to sign up for 
the 1981 SMC tennis tour- 
nament is Friday, September 
4. All are invited to participate 
as over 40 have signed up so 

The gym is open for recrea- 
tion the following times: 
Sunday - 1-4 p.m., 
weekdays - 8 a.m. -5 p.m. 
whenever a class is not in 
session, and Tuesday and 
Thursday nights from S-7 p.m. 


to making beautiful music 
in our new atmosphere. 

"Sounds of Distinction" 


in which Coach Phil Garver 
described the turnout and the 
talent so far at the gymnastic 
practices. Over 50 students 
have come out for practice this 
week. Garver added, ■'We'll 
miss some of the old stand- 
bys, but we'll make it. There's 
a lot of good talent out here." 

Sports [sports], n.. I. a/iy 
activity or experience that 
gives enjoyment or recreation: 
pastime: diversion. 2. snch an 
activity requiring more or less 
vigorous bodily exertion and 
carried on according to some 
traditional form or set of rules, 
whether outdoors, as football, 
hunting, golf racing, etc.. or 
indoors, as basketball, bowl- 
ing, squash, etc. 3. fun: play. 


New World Die- 

Was it a slip of the tongue 
or did he really mean it? 

When a well-known big- 
time college football coach 

(who shall remain nameless) 
was taken to task by a dis- 
appointed alumni for his 
team's downfall in a surpris- 
ing upset defeat, he alibied 
himself by blurting out: 

"All of my college boys 
played like a bunch of ama- 

Whether we take our sports 
as seriously as that football 
coach or whether we simply 
play for the exercise, everyone 
can enjoy sports. As ihe 
dictionary definition above 
states, our sport(s) requires 
three things: recreation, exer- 
tion (with controls), and above 
all. it should be FUN! The 
main thing is to get involved. 
Involvement is the key word 
this year in SMC sports. You 
don't have to be athletic to 
take part in the athletics 
available to each and every 
student. From baseball to 
cycling, from basketball to 
jogging, you can participate in 
almost any sport that you like. 

This year the Southern 
Accent will attempt to cover 
all aspects of the sporting life 
at SMC. Not only will we 
repbrt on games that were

played but also the games to 
be played and the games that 
you can play and enjoy for 
perhaps the first time. 

Ask any Talge Hal! resident 
what section of the newspaper 
he looks at first (excluding 
business majors). He will pro- 
bably say the sports section 
(business majors will probably 
say the financial section). This 
is your sports section. You can 
make a difference as to what 
you want to read about. Your 
suggestions on articles or 
reports that you'd like to see 

Sports are an integral part 
of most SMC students. If that 
doesn't include you, GET 
INVOLVED! If you' insist that 
you can't play any sport, at 
least go out and exercise your 
voice by yelling and cheering 
for your favorite player or 

From the World Series to

anyway?), your sports section 

So get up and get going! 

Pro forecast 

While the baseball players 
were striking because they 
want to own the world, foot- 
ball camps were getting ready 
to kick off another N.F.L. 

As an addition to the South- 
ern Accent this year, I will be 
bringing you predictions on 
upcoming games and events 
in major professional sports. 
Hopefully this column will 
prove to be accurate as well as 


/ill be 

ing races in the N.F.L. this 
season, as last year produced 
several newcomers to the 
playoff scene. 

In the N.F.C. East, Dallas 
and Philadelphia should battle 
down to the last day of the 

season and could end up with 
identical records again. Wash- 
ington and St. Louis will both 
be improved, but not enough 
to challenge the leaders. 

The N.F.L. Central is the 
division where you close your 
eyes and draw straws. Detroit 
and Chicago have the most 
liiient. Minnesota the best 
uoach, and nobody knows 
what the Bay's will do. 

In the West, Atlanta and 
L.A. will fight it out to the 
end. If Pat Haden stays 
healthy, look for the Rams to 
barely edge out the Falcons. 

Turning to the A.F.C. fast, 
Buffalo has made great strides 
since Chuck Knox took over as 
coach and should win their 
division again.

Dear Mom and Dad: 

Well, classes are finally 
starting. I'm afraid 1 have 
some bad news, though. In- 
stead of continuing in elemen- 
tary education like you wanted 
me to, I am on my way to 
becoming a very successful 
undertaker. Hope you don't 

I'd kind of planned on a 
more lively career, but all that 
was left by the time 1 got to 
register was Principles of 
Embalming. Layout and De- 
sign, and College Decompo- 
sition 101 (the night section). 
Oh, also Foundations of Bur- 
iology. 1 was really lucky to get 
that. The FB teacher, Dr. 
Frank N. Steen. just sort of 
squeezed me in at the last 
minute. He's the greatest. 

Anyway. I think it's going to 
be a good year. By the way, 
I'm really sorry 1 didn't make 
it home any the past two 
Christmases-I was still regi- 

To start with, I had a hard 
time finding the gymnasium. 
The grass has just sort of 
grown up around the people, 
you know, and it makes it 
difficult to get to the door 
without stepping on someone. 
By the time 1 finally got in, 
several of the teachers listed 
on my schedule had retired, so 
I had to make a few changes. 

It was kind of funny-there 

was this little boy in front of 
me with his mother. When I 
saw him again, his mother was 
gone and he was inside regis- 
tering for Freshman Comp. 
Time certainly does fly. 

I have a really neat room in 
the dorm. Remember, Mom, 
it's on the ninth floor, the one 
with the stairs that had just 
been painted when 1 moved in. 
anyhow, if I H^ down on the 
floor I can touch one wall with 
my head and the opposite wall 
with my feet, both at the same 
time. Makes it so much easier 
to do sit-ups-I'm sure you can 
imagine. Kind of hard to fit 
our beds in, but if we open the 
closet doorTit's not bad at all. 
that way we can get dressed 
without getting up, too. 
Speaking of "we", you should 
meet my roommate. She's 6' 
5" and plays quarterback on 
the football team here. I like 
her pretty well so far. When- 
ever I wake up in the mornings 
she always greets me with a 
friendly "HIKE!" and throws 
her pillow at me. I'm sure I 
can learn to adjust, though. 

Well, 1 have to run to class. 
College is a lot of fun and I'm 
doing fine, as you can tell, so 
don't even think about worry- 
ing. Everything is going great. 
Tell everyone hello for me.

Carmen Martinez: freshman: Hper: Flagstaff. AZ: I think it's

For openers, that's ok, but the 
picture of SMC is by no means 
complete. I'd like to share 
with you a few additional good 
points about your college. 

I've chosen four general 
interest areas as follow; 

1) NATURAL-Parks and 
recreation areas abound, with 
caves and hiking trails to add 
to the adventure. Our East 
Tennessee and Smoky Moun- 
tains ecosystem is unsur- 
passed by any other in the 
United States for its variety 
and range. 

2} HISTORICAL-Civil War 
battlefields and Indian relics 
surround you here. You can 
go far without succumbing to 
the impression that you've 
stepped right into a history 
book page. Chickamauga 
Battlefield. Lookout Point, 
Signal Mountain. Russell 
Cave-these will become 
familiar names to you. A well 
equipped and growing rail- 
road museum in Chattanooga 
harks back to the romantic 
heyday of railroads. (That's 

Chatanooga offers a wide var- 
iet>' of places to tickle the 
palate. For the spend-thrift 
there are KowIoon& Peking 
Restaurants, Gula's. The 
Peddler. The Sail-Maker, and 
a few others. For those who 
want to eat well, but save a 
few bucks for essentials-there 
are Taco Fiesta, Taco Bell, 


Duffs, Morrison's Cafeteria, 
Pizza Caesar's, Pizza Palace, 
and others. Good eating. 

4) ECONOMICAL-Northgate 
and Eastgate, Chattanooga's 
two major shopping malls, 
have all the stores you need to 
visit. And if these don't 
totally satisfy your shopping 
urge, just a short drive north 
on the Interstate will bring you 
to Cleveland with two very 
nice malls there. 
Oh, yes. One last thing. 

Don't be like the Portuguese 
man-o-war jelleyfish; he 
spreads himself out on the 
water and waits for the wind to 
make things happen. You 
make the choices, you make 
things happen-a little effort 
perhaps, but always worth it. 
"And do some studying.

they must come in and apply.

Wells also stressed that a 
Christian education is afford- 
able and possible for every 
college student, but there 
must be sacrifices. "A student 
needs to arrange priorities," 
she pointed out. Sometimes 
the choice is between a new 
sports car and a Christian 
education. In the times ahead, 
students may need to be more 
frugal and stick to their jobs. 
But with careful planning, 
they can make it. 

Music building nears completion

The official opening of the 
music building, currently 
under construction at South- 
ern Missionary College, is 
slated for October 23. Though 
several classes are presently 
being held in the new build- 
ing, finishing touches are 
1 being added to various por- 
\ lions of it. 

According to Richard 
I Reiner, business manager at 
I SMC, the construction should

I "'Wv days. Reiner also stated 
I that the project will be com- 
pleted within the projected 2 
million dollar budget. 

The general attitude of the 

students towards the new 

building is favorable.

I Marvin Robertson, related the

for the band and cho- 
rale, more than adequate class 
space, a listening room and 
study area, an electronic piano 
lab, a large concert hall/audi- 
torium and plenty of storage 
and teacher space. 

The new structure will bring 
the entire music faculty under 
one roof for the first time in 
Dr. Robertson's 15 years at 
SMC. The music department 
had formerly been spread 
around campus, using about 
five different buildings: the 
Old Tabernacle, Miller Hall, 
Talge Hall, the nursing build- 
ing and the Collegedale Sev- 
enth-day Adventist Church 
which will continue to be used 
because of the organ. 

The new facility is about ten 
times larger than the com- 
bined former ones, according 
to Dr. Robertson, and though 
it appears to be quite extrava- 
gant, he points out that its 
greatest advantage is its func- 
tionality. The rehearsal rooms 
are soundproof and. as a 
result, more effective rehears-

worship that is firm but fair. _ 

Each year they've asked themselves such questions as, "How 
many skips should we allow," or, "What should we do after 
excessive skips have been taken?" 

With the advent of a new school year came a total revamping 
of the system of worship credits. Enter the point. 

The point works something like our monetary system. You 
pay so many points and then you're free to do what you please 
during the week's remaining worship times. This seems fair 
when you consider that it is only required to attend half as many 
worships as there are points possible. 

To add further interest to the system, note that the point 
system works like a game of 'Pit' or 'Rook', If more worships 
than are needed in a week are attended, then the worshiper 
builds of a credit reserve that can be used for more skips at 
future times. 

If, however, a week of worships are skipped, then points are 
docked and the student must dig himself out of the hole with 
increased worship attendance during later weeks. 

Judgement comes to those who slide too far into the hole. 

What appeals to my curiosity is this-certain worships are 
worth two points while others are only worth one. 

What determines whether a worship is a one pointer or a two 
pointer? Is it the duration of the service? Is it the especially 
blessed speakers who expound so beautifully on two-pointer 
nights? Perhaps two-pointer's guarantee an additional spiritual 
blessing for the audience.

Dear Editor: 

I view the loss of our rec 
room privileges as a counter- 
part, with the extreme lack of 
quality entertainment on 
weekends, in driving the 
students downtown for their 
Saturday night activities. I 
don't think this is the goal of 
the administration, but I feel 
this is what will happen. 

Isn't it better to have the 
students around campus? 
Even if some are addicted to 
the video games, isn't it better 
to have them in Talge than at 
Edsel's Game Room or in The 
Land of O2 at Northgate; and

Steel girders hoisted 


The steel beams of the new 
humanities building, which 
ivill house the Art, English, 
Office Administration, History 
and Communication depart- 
ments, are taking shape. Ac- 
cording to Jack McClarty, 
director of development, the 
steel-which was ordered in 
January-is giving impetus to 
(hefmishing touch. The build- 
ing, yet unnamed at press 
time, will eventually replace 
Lynn Wood Hall entirely. 

Business Manager Richard 

Reiner says that there is no 

completion date available at 

present, but the structure 

1 should be finished in two or 

1 three years. The reason for 

L delayed construction is that 

■ progress depends mostly on 

■ pledged money, which comes 

1 slowly. The steel beams, 
le outside wall and the roof 
an be completed very soon. 

The project, which neigh- 
bors the new Music building, 
will cost between 1.8 and 2 
million dollars. Southern Mis- 
sionary College plans to use 
its own crew on the building, 
the last major project to be 
built at the college for 

snackers' delight 

New diner to entice 

The construction in the stu- 
dent center is fast tending 
toward a new snack bar, which 
will soon be opening for 
service. According to Elder 
K. R. Davis, about $10,000 
was appropriated last year out 
of the Student Association, 
budget to build the new dining 

The cafeteria plans to run 
the snack bar, which will serve 
items not served any other 
place on campus. The new 
menu includes specialty sand- 
wiches, virgin pina coladas, 
frogurt. fruit, and drinks. 
Students may use their I.D. 
cards in the new "adventure 

in eating." 

Opening date is uncertain at 
press time, but Barrel 
Starkey, who is helping con- 
struct the facility, believes it 
should be open around Sep- 
tember 20. It then will be open 
selectively during the day, in 
the evening, and on Saturday 

Maintenance, along with 
Dr. Melvin Campbell, Davis, 
and Starkey, has been busy 
building the snack bar for the 
past couple weeks. Davis 
disclosed that the interior will 
be decorated ' 'old timey' ' with 
hanging plants and Norman 
Rockwell prints.

Financial aid: is it sufficient 



by John Seaman 

The aid offered at SMC is 
enough to support any student 
who does not have adequate 
funds to support himself. I 
believe this for more than one 
reason. I am a student attend- 
ing SMC for the first time. I 
find that the 
worlt opportunities, low 
est loan programs, grants, 

me meet my monthly expen- 
ses. I do not have adequate 
information on all the aid 
available, but I would like to 
say something about the ones 
that immediately affect me.

portunity grant). This grant 

Second. I received a very 
low interest loan opportunity. 
I don't have to pay anything 
while 1 am in college, and 
when I graduate, the pay-

Dear Romeo: 

It depends on what your 
terminology of a ahorl walk is. 

If you are thinking of a walk 

about a half an hour in length. 

you could go out after study

If you had a walk in mind of 
a couple of hours or more, I 
don 't blame the deans. I

wouldn 't want my girl going 
on a walk like that either. If 
you have that big of a burden 
about an evening walk, it 
would .seem as though you 
have something more in mind 
than just a walk. 

Anyway, what happened to 
the beautiful weekend nights. 
After all, isn 't she also here to

1 would first like to say that I 
am thankful for the financial 
aid i get, and this year it is 
almost enough. 

1 am a sophomore and have 
24 hours completed. That 
means if I continue at my 
current rate it will take six 
years and one semester to 
graduate with a B.S. in Beha- 
vioral Science and a minor in 
computer programming. 

Being a student of limited 
income 1 am entitled to a basic 
grant, national direct student 
loan, work study and maybe 

If I really save my money, 
don't eat much, work a heavy 
work load and take only 12 
hours per semester I can make 
it through owing around 
6,000 to NDSL. 

The problem, however, is 
that I can only get four basic 
grants. SEOG's etc. That 

ses here either hasn't looked 
at all the options, or he/she is 
just lazy. There is some work 
involved in finding the plan 
that best fits you, but there 
are also people who are 
trained to help you like they 
helped me. If you are willing 
and have a spirit of coopera- 
tion, you should have no 
trouble in paying your way 
through school. After all 
what's a little work when it 
gives you the opportunity to 
attend SMC? 

leaves 36 hours at $140 per 
semester hour, not to mention 
a 12 percent tuition hike per 
year unpaid. I could go to 
school for one year and com- 
plete the 36 hours for a cost of 
$6,000 {at present costs). 

This leaves me with three 
options: 1) Get $6,000 from my 
parents, which is hopeless; 2) 
Claim independence and get 
full BEOG. but that will 
probably cut existing ties 
between my parents and me, 
and I would lose what clothes, 
food and moral support 1 do 
get; or 3) Work full time after 
my last aided year and go to 
school part-time. This is the 
alternative 1 most likely will 

I wish the General Confer- 
ence had some sort of Christ- 
ian financial aid or scholarship 
programs available that 1 
knew about. Christian educa- 
tion is a sacrifice even for 
those who get help. To me it is 
well worth it and 1 am one of 
the more fortunate ones,

Time Out 

The Softball intramurals 
have gotten off to a "swing- 
ing" start with Flach. Dicker- 
hoff, Burks and Hunt all tied 
for first in men's B league play 
after one week of action. 
Kryger. Griffin and Morris 
have the upper hand in the 
women's league, with Leonard 
and Smith both winning their 
opening games. In men's A 
league play. Sweeney's slow- 
pitch team is alone atop the 
division having won their first 
two games. 

In B league action, Dicker- 
hoff and Hunt look awfully 
tough so far, and 1 wouldn't be 
surprised if either of them 
were to win the league. The 
women's league is a little 
closer to call because any 
game could turn around in one 
inning, but if I were to pick a 
team it would have to be 
Kryger. Her team has a lot of 
talent. In men's A league the 
team to beat is Leonard's, 
although Smith's team will 
surely give Leonard a run for 

the crown. The slowpitch _ „ . ^

Could it be that we some 
times take our sports too 
seriously? Instead of a focus 
on a team effort, many 
competitive sports today 
emphasize the individual. 
This causes a conflict 
between legal aggression 
and the illegal violence that 
can injure or antagonize. 
This results many times in a 
lack of respect for a player's 
opponents. They learn to 
treat the opponent as an

Perhaps, we should take a 
close look at what profes- 
sional sports really means to 
us individually. I think 
sports can be entertaining 
and a source of enjoyment, 
but when it becomes time- 
consuming and a source of 
rivalries, arguments, and/ 

or physical violence, I beli- 
eve that it becomes wrong, 
very wrong! 

Let's keep pro sports 
where it should be, as a 
conversation item or pure 
entertainment, not a life- 
and-death struggle that has 
to be reenacted each week.

I am iisuallv an open-min- 
ded person when it comes to 
alternative life styles, but 
there is one going around 
SMC that has gotten a little 
too close to home. 

Last year, my best friend 
and 1 hung around together all 
the time. We wore Levi's and 
were proud of it, and then this 
Prep thing came along and 
kind of upset us. Of course, 
we were like every other 
non-prep, and sat in the 
cafeteria and made the prep 
jokes and rated every prep's 
clothes on its Blindness Factor 
(BF). We scored relative to 
how much we had to squint 
when looking at a prep. 

Well, Christmas came and 
went, and my friend came 
back wearing an Izod sweater. 
I approached him in disbelief 
and asked him what had come 
over him.

Christ lives through Bothwell's talks 

Elder Roger Bothwell, cur- 
rently an instructor at the 
Loma Linda School of educa- 
lion. is conducting this sem- 
ester's Week of Spiritual 
Emphasis at Southern Mis- 
sionary College. 

Concerned with different 
glimpses of the life of Christ, 
Elder Bothwell's meetings in- 
clude personal-style views of 
Christ's value system. His 
extensive powerful prayer life; 
His mysterious blend of 
humanity and livinity and His 
beautiful relations with the 
people of His time. 

Elder Bothwell served as 
pastoral Georgia-Cumberland 
Academy for four years, and 
he says: "I feel quite at home 
here at SMC." "In fact." he 
added, "without intending to 
alienate other schools, SMC 
students are some of the 
warmest in the world!" 

Looking forward to being 
with SMC's students, Elder 
Bothwell says the first two 
meetings are the most dif- 

ficult because the students are 
"looking him over" wonder- 
ing whether he's for real or a 

' ' For real ' ' more closely 
characterizes these student 
comments concerning the first 
part of the week: "He makes 
everything so realistic, he puts 
you right there." "The meet- 
ings are inspiring." "Looks 
like we're going to have a 
good week." 

In addition to his speaking 
appointments. Elder Bothwefl 
counseled interested students 
throughout the week. 

Cutting to the heart of the 
issue about the outcome of the 
meetings, the speaker ap- 
pealed; "I wish for more than 
an emotional high. What we 
need is a genuine revival, not 
only for the young people, but 
for their parents as well." 

Elder Bothwell's ministry 
here at SMC testifies to his 
hope of a spiritual regenera- 
tion for SMC and elsewhere. 

Small town prosperity 

Elder Roger Bothw 

Collegedale operates above inflation 

The City of Collegedale has 
an $82,000 surplus this year, 
partially due to Southern Mis- 
sionary College. 

"The budget is very easy to 
explain," commented Dr. 
Wayne VandeVere, Vice May- 
or of the City of Collegedale 
and Chairman of the Division 
of Business and Office Admin- 
istration. "During the 1979- 
80 fiscal year, we had a 
$30,000 deficit because of 
unexpected expenses. So for 
the 1980-81 fiscal year, we 
tried to keep the budget in 
check and encourage conser- 
vative spending by the City 

The budget was kept in 
check. The City of College- 
dale was $10,000 under the 
$628,000 budget, according to 
an audited report released 
September 8. Tax revenues 
brought in over $700,000. 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege also had a part in the 
budget surplus. For many 
years the College did not pay 
taxes on much of its commer- 
cial and residential property. 

SMC did pay some money to 
the city in lieu of taxes for the 
city services received. How- 
ever, in February of this year, 
Claude Ramsey, the new As- 
sessor of Taxes for Hamilton 
County, put much of SMC's 
property back on the tax rolls. 
SMC was forced to pay the 
assessments. the City of 
Collegedale directly benefited 
from this. 
The surplus has also raised 
■ tens who 

the i 

of ! 

complain of high taxes and a 
low level of city services, 
especially road maintenance 
and repair. 

"I think it's outrageous." 
commented one citizen. "Col- 
legedale has one of the high- 
est city tax rates in Hamilton 
County and then they have a 
surplus. " 

What are the city's plans as 
far as taxes are concerned?

When I heard this summer that the Religion dep^*"^°' "^J 
under attack. I was mUdly surprised After all, 1 have ^ken 
three classes taught by professors m the department and! was 
never aware of any false teachings. Furthermore, everything 
tauBht me was in agreement with what I had grown up Jo teallTe 
as Uie foundations and doctrines of the Seventh-day Adventlst 

Where did all the murmerings and rumors come from? I just 
couldn't accept the possibUity that summer had brought with it 
an onslaught of departmental shortcomings. 

Upon my arrival at SMC I was met by two functions. One 
distributed letters that complained about the supposed heresys 
of the religion department. On the other hand, however. 
President Knittel defended SMC's reputation with his 
convincing presentations which answered those who spread 
rumors and accuse the establishment of falluig by the wayside. 

Things were confusing-confusing, that is, until I discovered 
something I should have expected all along. 

As a student in a fourth religion class at SMC, 1 have been 
listening with particular interest to what the teacher has to say. 
I was surely one of those students who, as 0r. Knittel put it, 
"will watch them closely." 

Recently my attention has shifted. Now instead of watching 
the teacher, I'm watching the students. 

Teachers are still teaching what they have been teaching 
throughout the years-knowledge that has been compiled after 
much study and even more thought. 

What's amazing are the things students teach. 

If a teacher states that he doesn't know if there will be 
marriage in heaven, some student is likely to raise his hand and 
ask why there won't be marriage in heaven. 

Just let a professor speculate that maybe the Second Coming 
won't be for another ten years, and you almost predict that at 
least one student will tell his peers about his religion teacher 
who said the Second Coming isn't going (o be for at least ten 

I have watched in disbelief as students monopolized religion 
class with trtvVal questions and then, from, the answers 
compiled a lis" of "false doctrines" that they claim were taught 

*wiil the day ever come when students in religion classes 
attempt to solidify their faith with good thinking and sound logic 
»nc"ming questions that are vital to Adventist doctrme? 

Or as I fear, wUI classes continue to harbor those who 
continually twist the words of professors who are attempting to 
give fuller meaning to the Christian philosophy of love?

Dear Editor: 

In reply to last week's letter I 
would like to expound on 
Brother F— 's position just a 

. Most of the Brother F— 's 
I've listened to were new 
Adventists some 30 years ago 
when they were college age. 
They chose SMC because of 
its spiritual zeal and atmos- 
phere. Times were hard then 
as they are now as far as 
money went, but even harder 
when you speak of spiritual or 
religious prejudice. 

These new Adventists found 
a home here where they could 
grow spiritually. Soon they 
began an outreach program 
into Chattanooga which at that 
time was an hour's ride away 
over rough roads. It was hard, 
but now we see the benefits of 
all this; our school is highly 
respected in the area. 

These new Adventisft . „„,.. 

in the faith for 30 years ■ see 
this respect slipping away. 
Being eroded at its founda- 
tion, the spirituality of a 
campus can't go beyond its 
geographic limits. Take for 
example the pool table being 
removed from the dorm. 
What harm can a pool table 
do? None of itself, but when 
we spend more time using 
such things as TV's, pool 
tables and electronic games 
and less time committing our 
life to Christ, these things 
become wicked. 

I would like to end with two 
quotes, one from an alumnus 
of the "good days" and 
another from a new Adventist 
who could very well be stand- 

ing beside 

you read 

"The student body of SMC 
when 1 went to school there 
would have bodily desfroved 

that pool table and cartied ii 
out of there to the junk pile' 
"Adventists here are much 
less spiritually mature than I 
thought they would be. 1 ow 
all the sinful worldly Amt^ 
while a non-Adventist, but 
Christ has filled my life «'" 
something more and yet ft» 
on this campus seem to reaWE 
that or else they just don I 

It is unfortunate that tM 
deans have been forced to tat 
our playthings away from " ■ 
but now is the time that out

Waterman presents sharks 


Stan Waterman, the under- 
\\ater man, will present his 
film entitled "Shark Survival" 
and "Lost Treasure of the 
Conception" on Saturday 
night. September 19, at 8:15 
p m. in the Physical Education 

Waterman is a maker of 
documentary films about the 
world under the sea. In the 
course of a quarter century of 

experience in the sea he has 
acquired a first-hand know- 
ledge of marine animals and 
man's activity in the sea. 

Through his many encoun- 
ters with sharks and whales he 
has become particularly fami- 
liar with these most dramatic 

He was associate producer 
and underwater cameraman 
for the classic production. 

It Waterman's coming presentallon, 

"Blue Water. White Death", 
a feature film about the real 
search for the great white 
shark. The film was produced 
almost ten years before 
"Jaws" appeared. 

That same year that 
"Jaws" was published Water- 
man went with the author, 
Peter Benchley, to Australia to 
film the real confrontation 
between the "Jaws" origi- 
nator and a 16' white shark off 
the South Australian Coast. 

The film caused a sensation 
on the ABC Network and is 
now part of Mr. Waterman's 
program under the title, "The 
Author Meets the Jaws." 

He produced and filmed all 
the action for an NBC hour 
special on sharks and most 
recently returned from an 
expedition to the Sea of Cortez 
where he filmed massed 
schools of hammerhead sharks 
underwater and the activities 
of the giant manta rays. 

The manta ray story appea- 
red in the February issue of 
"National Geographic." 1981. 

Waterman lives in Prince- 
ton. N.J. with his wife, 
Susanna, and summers on 
Penobscot Bay when he is not 
off making films. 

Tickets for the Stan Water- 
man Show can be purchased 
for SI. SI. 50 and $2.50 at the 
Student Center desk or at the 

At this, as in all future 
Artist Adventure Series, a 
section will be reserved that is

Did you know that Karen 
Anderson would prefer her 
husband not moisten his lips 
when he kisses her? And to 
the 25 point bonus question. 
What fruit would you compare 
your husband's first kiss to: a 
sour lemon, a mushy banana, 
a crisp apple or a fuzzy peach? 
Inelda Hefferlin confided, 
"Don't tell Ray, but it was 
really like a sour lemon!" 

Ron and Kathleen Carter 
won the Grand Prize-a night 
for two at Chattanooga's Read 
House with room service. The 

Accent declined following the 
story further. All other parti- 
cipating couples received $10.

it that with all the preparation 
of the speaker in topics that he 
feels will enhance our relation- 
ship with the Lord that we 
don't seem to "grasp and

Several reasons for this loss 
have been brought to my 
attention. First, let us con- 
sider the number of these 
meetings thai "condition" us. 
With the average Adventist 
freshman already attending 24 
such meetings in his previous 
scholastic experience, one can 
find evidence to support the 

reaffirmation of present song title's implication "Same

not always drawn out at

people might not dread the

The concentration of meet- 
ings that we have in a Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis also poses 
the problem of what happens 
afterward. With such a 
titanical impact there is a 
drastic drop in spirit that 
leaves many students having a 
difficult time correlating their 
new ideas and adopting them 
into their daily life. 

Finally, I feel that the 
lasting permanent religious 
experience involves a life-long 
goal as a result of 10 meetings 
distributed over a calendar

you wish students and faculty 
of SMC to remember from this 
week of spiritual emphasis? 

Bothwell: How accessable 
God is and like a loving father 
He longs for His children to 
trust Him to do the very best

Accent: It seems that every- 
thing we have been taught 
from cradle roll to college is 
being tested today. People 
are questioning the Bible, 
Spirit of Prophecy, and even 
the Sabbath. With what 
attitude should we approach 

Bothwell: If what we believe 
IS true the tests will only 
vmdicate. If they fail the test 
of questions and scrutiny then 
we best let them go. We need 
a sure foundation built on the 
Scriptures to see us through 
the trying days ahead.

Therefore, only time spent 
together- constant association

Why is it that every time we

to be some sort of altar call? I 
thought altar calls were to be 
special, but we have them all

To be honest, I find myself

Dear Rcsentfiif. 

I'll agree that we do have 
altar calls quite often, but 

when you have so many 
people attending one church, 
you can't call them all at one 
time very often. 

The Holy Spirit works in 
mysterious ways. It may take 
a dozen calls before some 
people will finally give in to 
His pleading. 

Yes. there are others who 
feel the way you do. Many in 
fact. Some of their boats may 
be sinking, so beware that 
yours doesn 't, too.

by Laurie Logi 
Vou know, ever since our 
nation almost unanimously-- 
by either voting or refraining 
from voting--elected Ronald 
Reagan president, 1 have 
watched with bated breath to 
see all of his campaign pro- 
mises fulfilled. Improve our 
educational system. Recon- 
struct our nation's economy. 
Cut government spending. 
This last proposal sounded 
especially good to me. After 
all, if the government quit 
spending so much, then this 
would certainly mean reduced 
taxes for everyone, right? I 
could handle that. I was 
ecststic until I went in last 
week to pick up my first check 
from my new job. 1 scanned 
the figures quickly. Gross pay: 
S372.14. FICA: $21.04. Fede- 
ral withholding: $260.10. Net 
Pay: $92.00. 

Dumbfounded, I called the 
bite House. I was rather 
indignant about the whole 
business and, as a result, 
wasn't exceptionally nice to 
the man who answered. 
Anyhow, he didn't sould like 
anyone 1 knew. 

"Is Ronnie home?" I 
demanded. With my luck, 
he'd be out on some business 
trip or something. 

"No, I'm in charge here 
right now. Who's calling?" 
"A business acquaintance. 
He borrowed some money 
from me. and I was just 
wondering when he planned 
on paying it back. He sort of 
borrowed it without my know-

"I can see he's already 
made some drastic changes 
since Jimmy left," I observed 
innocently. "Sir, do you have 
anything to do with taxes?" 

"Yes, I pay them just like 
you do." 

"I doubt that[ Since when 
did federal witholding jump to 
two-thirds of our gross pay?" 

"That depends on how 
much you make." 

"Don't get funny. What are 
you guys doing up there, 
anyway? How often does 
Nancy redecorate?" 

"Well, she did the dining 

week. Is that expensive?" 

"Kind of. The wood has to 
be captured in its prime and 
stored in a dark room for about 
400 days or so. Then after that 
it's sent to a very exclusive 
shop known as The Embassy 
to be made up into furniture. 
It is then flown to the United 
States, where the eager cus- 
tomers can pick it up." 

"Doesn't furniture that ex- 
pensive require a lot of special 
care?" he asked, forgetting 
that he was supposed to be 
giving me the answers. 

'At first, yes. It has to be 

"early Iranian" last polished almost 

with ticker tape and ribbon, 
but after the fu-st couple of 
weeks it can be treated almost 
like any other brand. But sir,

also had all tbe doors widened

hoping she hadn't told her

"Do you mean he actually

SAgenate chosen 

College government wants you 

The polls have been opened 
for the 1981-82 Student Senate 
elections. This year's race is 
marked by a combination of 
involvement and apathy. 

In contrast to a low level of 
participation that has become 
i trend in years past, village 
students must choose from a 
list of eight candidates. There 
ire four seats reserved in the 
lenate for village students. 

Thatcher Hall, which sends 
the largest representation to 
the SA senate, had only five 
lidates running in four 
precints by application dead- 
line. The reamining six pre- 
cincts were only occupied by 
candidates after SA president 
Roger Burke contacted con- 
stituents living in the various 

When asked how he chose 
those whom he asked to run, 
Burke stated that he contacted 
acquaintances whom he felt 

would do a good job in 
representing their consti- 

The Student Senate is the 
legislative branch of the Stu- 
dent Association of Southern 
Missionary College. The Sen- 
ate regulates the objectives 
and policies of the Student 
Association as well as the 
association's committees. 

Those wishing to become 
senators were required to 
have a GPA or at least 2.25 
and have spent at least 9 
weeks at SMC. 

Senate meetings are held 
approximately every two 
weeks or. with account being 
taken for vacations and exam 
weeks, about 12 times per 

Besides the Thatcher Hall 
representation of ten senators 
and the village representation 
of four senators, Talge Hall 
sends eight representatives. 

Jones sends one and one 
senator represents Orlando. 

Senators may represent pre- 
cincts other than the one they 
live on. although male sena- 
tors may not represent the 
women's dorm and vica versa. 

Senators work on a volun- 
tary basis so receive no pay. 
They are, however, invited to 
a senator's banquet held at 
the end of the school year. 

Voting will continue the 
evening of Thursday, Septem- 
ber 24. in the dorms between 
the hours of 8 p.m. and 10 
p.m. Friday morning voting 
will be held in the Student 
Center between the hours of 9 
p.m. and 12 noon.

candidates and the precincts 
they represent, see page 4. 

Doll house survives 

The Doll 
House begins 
its career 

a final resting 

by William Dubois 

Along with the large and 
modern buildings rising on the 
campus of Southern Mis- 
sionary College, another ad- 
dition that is neither large nor 
modern takes its place. 

The structure, having been 
moved between Camp Road 
and the tennis courts, is the 
only building that remains 
from the original Thatcher 
plantation. It will stand as a 
historical landmark represent- 
ing the time when SMC was in 
its infant stage. 

The Doll House, as the 
former play house is known, 
was built by James Thatcher 
for his daughter Evadne in 
about the year 1850. 

After the college claimed 
ownership of the play house, 
the president of SMC used the 
small building as his office. It 
wasn't long, however, until it 
became apparent that the 
cramped space would not suf- 

The Doll House took a 
drastic step down from its 
exalted state to the status of a 
storage shed for bee hives. 

Destined to constantly 
changing roles, the House 
quickly became the focus of 
attention when a student con- 

tracted small pox. The school 
did not yet have its own health 
service, so the Doll House 
became a hospital quarantine 

Later, the constantly chang- 
ing piece of history became a 
shoe repair shop. 

After being moved to where 
Daniel Hall now stands, the 
Doll House was used as a 
dormitory room for several of 
the female students. 

Next came use as a prayer 
room, with the switch then 
being made to a music studio 
during the 1 924-25 school 
year, A handle resembling 
those on a Victrola was at- 
tached to the side of the 
building known during this 
period as the "Grafanola." 

After the music majors be- 
came tired of the tiny practice 
area, the building was again 
moved and began use as a 
storehouse for seed and, later, 
for tools. 

In 1958, after 40 years of 
constant college use, the Doll 
House was sold. It was soon 
missed by alumni and a suc- 
cessful attempt was made to 
bring the versatile house back 
to its original home.

3 Subjectii/G ana^sis 

To think that even the minutest portion of my tuition supports 
a regime like the absence committee burdens my rational mmd 
to the brink of rage. I maintain that the committee is as uesless 
as it is thankless. 

Each student pays approximately $6,000 annually to attend a 
fiill class schedule here at SMC, and in my opinion our students 
are also adult enough to know how often they will attend class m 
order to make the grades they want to graduate with. Most 
people are here to get an education that will give them 
opportunities for jobs to support a family or make money for 
something. And at $6,000 a year, I feel our students are aware 
enough to avail themselves of the education they are paying for. 

OK, you disagree. You think some students need prompting. 
They're not adult enough. So a complaining-parent constituency 
makes an absence committee necessary? 1 doubt any 
constituent would support the absence committee if they knew 
all the irrationality and subjectivity connected with its 
preposterous decisions. 

It is absolutely ridiculous that a student can go to health 
service with slight stomach cramps (probably just a little 
gas-try Turns or Aika-Seltzer--and I'm not even a nurse!) or an 
equally slight headache and get a signature that automatically 
grants them one of those coveted EXCUSED's on top of their 
yellow absence slip. 

Vet those of us who are healthy and have responsibilities that 
once in a great while keep us up till 3 or 4 a.m. can't get an 
excuse for an 8 a.m. class even though it's the first class we've 
skipped in three decadesi Beyond absurdity indeed! 

Remembering that it's so elementary, academic, and 
authoritarian to even organize an absence system at all, one has 
to see the above comparison shadowed by a dark cloud of 
superfluous nonsense. (The absence committee- -not my 
comparison. Thank you, logicians.) 

If we must have an absence policy, a need which I deem 
egregious at best, let's at least not take it for granted that every

alarm clock excuse isn't valid and that every headache is. 
Would you liJte a research paper next week on the effects of 
missing sleep and its importance for proper psychological 
functioning and comprehension (at least enough to make going 
to class worthwhile), or would you prefer me call every faculty 
member on the absence committee every 15 minutes or so all 
night one night and expect them to function at top efficiency the 
next day? 

If anyone would like to retaliate and assure me that they could 
do it with no problem. I really don't care to participate in their 
foolhardy, macho extravagance of body and mind. 

To those wise old faculty members who possess that wise old 
comeback about planning and priorities concerning proper rest, 
1 have but one coup d 'e 'tat: Any complaints about the Accent or 
the Joker being late or containing too many mistakes will be met 
with the utmost scorn, ridicule, defensiveness, intolerance, and 
all those other protocol techniques 1 have honed to perfection 
through the eager assistance and modeling of the absence 
committee. Danke schon! Grade! I am deeply indebted. 

Dear Editor: 

As Binky, Kip, Rip, Trip, 
and 1 walked the hallowed 
steps of Jacob's ladder, we 
were impressed by the pre- 
sence of two species of hu- 
manity that roamed the hon- 
ored walkways ot our beloved 
Alma Mater. There was us, 
and then there were them. 

They were the ones who 
wore the Nike T-shirts, Puma 
warm-up jackets, with Adidas 
sneakers, Speedo warm-up 
pants and a hat with a logo 
that read something like "Bet- 
ter Red than Dead." They 
were also the ones that wore 
their besl K-Mart short-sleeve 
dress shirts with their polyes- 
ter doulbe-knit pants and a 
brand of topless shoes that 
oozed with the incredible 
smell of unwashed feet- 
known as flip-flops. 

The old boys and I tried to 
reason why they would choose 
such unpractical garb, but we 
could not explain it. Let's face 
»-that style of clothing just is 
not practical-the sweat suits

double knit picks and runs and 
balls: if it's raining, your feet 
get all wet and slippery and 
you slide all over the wet spots 
like you were riding the por- 
celian honda down the Alpine 

My Dear Mr. Dickerhoff, 
We old boys then looked at the 
clothing we wore, thought for 
a while and were convmced of 
the practicality of the garb we 
wore-the "peculiar garb" as 
it is known in some other 
circles. The button-down 
collars-as Ms. Bimbach, 
author of our handbook will 
attest-keep our collars from 
flappmg in our faces during a 
polo match; the topsiders, or 
"boat moccasins" that we 
wear on board our Pearson 
Flyer keep us from slippmg on 
the wet deck and come in 
equally handy when it rains, 
as they keep us from sliding

September 24. 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 


Dear Editor: 

This letter is concerning an 
article published in the Sep- 
tember 17 issue of the Accent, 
"Collegedale Operates Above 
Inflation". First, how do you 
operate above inflation? City 
governments must plan for 
and recognize inflation just as 
any business or citizen must. 
Because of planning College- 
dale operates in spite of 
inflation, but not above infla- 

Second. Mr. Rozell did not 
have his facts straight on a 
couple of matters. CoUege- 
', tax revenues were not 
over $700,000.00. The correct 
re is $252,050.11 for pro- 
perty tax revenue. The total 
revenue for the City of Col- 
legedale was $800,322.51. 

Near the end of his article 
Mr. Rozell quoted a College- 
dale citizen as saying in 
part. 'Collegedale has one of 
the highest city tax rates in 
Hamilton County." There is 
no question that a citizen said 
this or even believes this, 
however, reporter Rozell was 
not thorough enough to check 
with the Assessor of Property 
for Hamilton County to see if 
this was true. If the facts had 
been checked by a simple 
phone call he would have 
learned that Collegedale is 
NOT among the highest taxed 
cities in the county. 

All property owners in 
Hamilton County pay S2.42 
per $100.00 of assessed value 

to the county. Those living in 
various cities pay additional 
taxes as follows: Lookout 
Mountain. $2.90; Chattanoo- 
ga. $2.56; Signal Mountain. 
$2.50; Collegedale, $1.40; 
East Ridge. $0.70; Red Bank, 

Finally, while it is true that 
Southern Missionary College 
has had some unfortunate 
problems concerning taxable 
and non-taxable property, it 
should be pointed out that on 
June 23 the Collegedale City 
Commission voted to return 
ALL of the money paid 

to the City by SMC over the 
years on which they paid 
taxes. This is determined on a 
parcel by parcel basis and the 
exact amount returned. 

In the past few issues of the 
Accent there have been quotes 
regarding the freedom and 
power of the press; please 
keep in mind that with free- 
dom and power comes respon- 
sibilit>' to report truthfutlv and 

SA budget sectioned 

Is your Student Association 
worth the money you pay? 
According to Robert Mer- 
chant, treasurer of SMC, 
Southern Missionary College 
students pay an average of 
$32.40. or about 1.25% of 
their tuition fees in SA dues. 
What do SMC students get for 
the money they pay? 

Based on the SA budget for 
1981-82, your dollars will help 
pay for such things as Social 
Activities, the publication of 
the Accent and Southern 
Memories, and the salaries of 
the SA officers. 

The total amount budgeted 
this year for the SA is $65,000- 
$62,000 from student fees and 
$3000 from last year's surplus. 
Merchant said, however, that 
the amount the SA will receive 

in dues this year is 511,000 
less than last year because of 
the enrollment drop. "It is 
fortunate," he said, "that the 
SA drew up a very conserva- 
tive budget. They will be 
receiving about $60,000 this 

"We are going to keep the 
budget in line." Roger Burke, 
SA president pointed out. "It 
is our primary concern to see 
that each member of the 
student body receives the 
most possible benefit from 
their SA dues." 

The biggest part of the SA 
budget goes to finance South- 
em Memories, the school 
yearbook. The $17,500 appro- 
priation, an $1200 increase 
over last year, will go for such 
things as salaries, supplies, 

SA Treasurer Rick Mountz e 

and printing. 

The nex^t largest appropria- 
tion, $10,800. goes to the 
Southern Accent, the SA news- 
paper you are now reading. 
The budgeted amount for the 
paper has not increased over 
last year, but SA President 
Roger Burke defended the 
budget freeze by pointing out 
that the cost of paper has not 
increased drastically over the 
previous year. "Another fac- 
tor," Burke added, "is that 
the editor, Mike Seaman, feels 
that the paper can be run just 
as efficiently by increasing ad

evening of September 27.

preparing doctorates-Brian

the divisional staff at the 
supper to be held in the 

of the cafeteria. 

Henry Kuhlman has complet- 
ed a computer optimization to 
accommodate the exam sche- 
dule cut-back from 3'/i days to 
2'/j, Though not published at 
press time, the optimization 
will limit the possibility of any 
student having all of his/her 
tests on the same day right in 
a row. Of course with the 
cutback, some conflicts may 
still occur, but the program 
assures the barest minimum 
of problems. 

The third largest section of 
the budget, the administra- 
tive, at S8825. has come under 
fire for providing SA officers 
such things as plane ticket 
fare to California and a week- 
end trip to Gatlinburg. Burke 
emphasized that the trip to 
California last year was for the 
American Intercollegiate As- 
sociation, a union of North 
American Adventist colleges. 
He stressed that the conven- 

9 the budget. 

tion helped give SMC's SA 
better leaders and more ability 
to serve the students. As for 
the trip to Gatlinburg, Burke 
admitted it was not all meet- 
ings but he did point out the 
main goal of the trip. "This 
was to get our SA game plan 
ready for this year. The trip" 
helped the officers to get to 
know each other better and 
form a more cohesive group." 

Other budget categories in- 
clude: Student Activities, bud- 
geted at $7350, which will pay 
for such things as student 
services and the Strawberry

SA: is it doin^ its job? 


by Roger Burke 

Without hiding behind the 
veil of bias, my answer is an 
emphatic yes. Many times the 
role of the Student Association 
is vaguely defined. So before 
we can determine the answer 
to the above question we must 
define the role and purpose of 
the organization. 

The Student Association is a 
student government in that it 
is by the students and for the 
students. It is an organization 
of students formed to bring 
under central leadership var- 
ious co-curricular and extra- 
curricular student activities. 
This is essential for a growing 
Christian college community. 
In view of that definition, let's 
see if the jobs get done. 

Some of the more direct 
benefits that you have and will 
continue to receive from the 
SA come in the form of prime 
media. Provided for your ser- 
vice and information are pub- 
lications such as the Numer- 
ique, Southern Memories 
(year book), Southern Accent, 
Campus Chatter and other 
informative flyers and posters. 
Those whom you elected for 
these duties began work as far 
back as the beginning of the 
summer. Why? Because it is 
their job. 

The SA is a channel through 
which the voices of individual 
students may be heard. The 

SA enjoys a great deal of 
student representation in var- 
ious policy-making com- 
mitties on campus. Lest a 
student feel that his opinions 
are squelched by the relatively 
vast population. I wish to point 
out that the student senate 
stands ready to present in 
orderly fashion any heartfelt 
view of any individual. In 
addition we all have two or 
more fellow students who are 
presently being appointed as 
voting members to faculty 

committees such as Student 
Affairs, Academic Affairs. 
Loans and Scholorship, Artist 
Adventure Series. Library, 
Faculty Senate, and many 
more. Through each of these 
channels student views are 
expressed. Why do we take 
these measures to see that 
democracy is alive and well? 
Because it is our job. 

Please do not fret; the SA is 
equally concerned with the 
social lives of SMC students. 
Thus programs such as the 

Big Bash, Oldywed Game, 
Fall Festival, SA Fall Picnic, 
cookie breaks, Christmas Ban- 
quet, Strawberry Festival, 
trips to Six Flags and other 
places will be provided 
throughout the year. Not to 
■ exclude anyone, the SA sends 
funds to the Orlando Campus 
so that they can carry on their 
own social programs. Why? 
Becuase it's our job. 

The elected and appointed 
SA officers are all involved in 
the smooth performance of all 

the services and programs 
listed above. The team spirit 
that rises from the group 
which you elected indicates 
that this year will be a 
fun-filled success. Shortly 
after school started the SA 
sponsor asked me how things 
were going. I promptly ans- 
wered in pleasant amazement, 
"Everyone wants to work." 
Why? Not just because it is 
our job, but because of the 
loving concern of each officer 
for their fellow students. 


When we are posed with a 
question such as this, 1 think it 
is best to take a thoughtful 
look to evaluate what the 
question is really asking. 

When it was brought to me, 
the first thing that came to my 
mind was not whether the 
S.A. officers spend grueling 
hours behind their desks, 
throwing to the wind all 
thought of schoolwork, sleep 
or nutrition; but rather the 
question, "What exactly is the 
S.A.'s job and what is it doing 
for the students?" 

When I had turned these 
new questions over in my 
mind, I realized that I don't 
feel the S.A. is doing its job in 
the respect of a positive 

its student body. 

Who really knows what S.A. 
is doing for the student body 
besides the S.A. officers? For 
that matter, can every student 
attending SMC give a good 
answer to the seemingly sim- 
ple question. "What is the 

When all students are to 
benefit from their member- 
ship in this association then I 
feel it is asking little to have 
some more extensive public 
relation promotions in action. 

Are there possible un- 
answered questions such as 

What information does the 
S.A. have to offer me about 
my school? What decisions 
can the S.A. really make? Are 
there programs or ideas that 1 
can suggest that might be 
thoughtfully considered? Can 
I really take an active part in 
my S.A.? 

Being an ex-senator, hold-

k"iM BaKinG 



ing office last school year, I 
realize how interesting the 
S.A. is and how much can 
really be done when there are 
officers and students who are 
willing to work to make things 
happen, but I was also a 
witness as to how few of our 
constitutents knew of our 
meetings, our plans, our in- 
vestments and our accom- 

I ask you, is the S.A. really 
doing its job if no one knows 
what the job is that it has set 

I feel there is a definite need 
of a more open communica- 
tion between the student body 
and its S.A. 

The 4014 information num- 
ber is a good start towards 
opening doors to better aware- 
ness of S.A. events, but do we 
not need something more? 

I think the students are 
interested in knowing more 
about their association, and 1 
think that many are ready to 
help with any improvements 
this year's S.A. would try to 

Yet once again we need to 

can do and is doing. 

Didn't someone once say, 
"Ask not only what you can do 
for your S.A., but what your 
S.A. can do for you."

It seems in today's world 
that everyone tries to gain our 
attention by some means. 
Advertising constantly cries 
out "Try this! Read that! 
taste, listen, buy . . !" In the 
field of religion the same is 
true. Another pamphlet, 
handout, tape, or book always 
exists that you "must" read to 
be "up" on things. From both 
inside and outside the Church 
material abounds. But there 
just isn't enough time to wade 
through all the papers and 
tapes available. What should 
we do? Which ones should be 
read? Below are several 
guidelines that may be of 
some help. 

First we should READ and 
study THE BIBLE. No other 
single source of informaiton 
can put us up to date better on 
the current issues of church 
and state. The answers to all 
the theological questions that 
have been, are, or will be in 

the church are located in the 
Bible. Remember also that 
the answers to daily and 
personal questions are there. 
Read the Bible. 

A second guideline is based 
on Proverbs 14:15. "The 
naive believes everything, but 
the prudent man considers his 
steps." (NASB) To put this 
in other words, SELECT out- 
side reading material CARE- 
FULLY. Not everything that 
has a Bible text, and EGW 
quote, or SDA written in some 
prominent place is worth 
spending time on. There is 
more material around than 
any of us can read in several 
lifetimes, so we must select 
carefully. Here are a few 
questions to ask of any publi- 

1) In what spirit is the 
publication written? (critical, 
informative, concern, etc.) 

2) Does it follow the guide- 
lines set up in Phillipians 4:8? 

Someone has estimated that (Genesis 37-50) and see if you 

1 the life of Joseph there ; 
I more than 100 parallels to the 
I life of Christ. Can you help 
DIRECTIONS find them?Read 
Ithrough the life of Joseph 

can locate some parallels bet- 
ween Joseph and Christ. Send 
them to DIRECTIONS, c/o 
ACCENT, by Friday, October 

(Whatever is true, honorable, 
right, pure, lovely, of good 

3) If it is of a critical nature, 
does the criticism tend to 
rebuild or tear down? 

4) How are others respond- 
ing to it in their words and by 
their actions? 

Though not at the top of the 
list, this is of importance. 

Select your material care- 

Another guideline is that we 
should BE TOLERANT with 
those who may hold a view 
different from ours. This 
doesn't mean that we should

professor of Old Testament at

Theological Seminary of 
Andrews University will be

Watch the Southern Accent 
for announcements of future 

agree or give in to what they 
say, but we must remember 
two things: 

1) They may be at a differ- 
ent level of development than 

2) It is possible to disagree 
without being disagreeable. 

It is also important to BE 
OBJECTIVE. When the doc- 
trines of the church are put to 
the test, we must not hide our 
heads or close our eyes hoping 
that the challenges will go 
away. As did the Bereans 
with Paul's "new" message, 
let us search the scriptures 
daily whether these things are 

so. Acts 17:11. 

A fifth guideline is to CON- 
TINUE TO STUDY for oursel- 
ves. No belief or doctrine 
should be solely based upon 
what others think or are 
saying. "Study to shew 
theyself approved unto God." 
We, and no one else, are 
responsible for the salvation of 
our souls. Continue to study. 

Finally. ASK the Holy Spirit 
for guidance. "God can teach 
you more in one moment by 
His Holy Spirit than you could 
learn from the great men of 
the earth." TM 119.

South sea islands 
orchestra's tour 

On May 3, 198]. after 
months of car washes, benefit 
films, letter writing campaigns 
and personal contributions, 
the members of the Southern 
Missionary College Symphony 
Orchestra strapped into the jet 
airliner that would rush them 
to Oahu Island, Hawaii, for 
the first stop of their record- 
breaking, month-long tour of 
the South Sea Islands. 

Five standing ovations for 
their first concert effort in 
Oahu rewarded in advance the 
grinding schedule of concert 
dates and rehearsals that lay 
before them. Of course, the 
Hawaiian Luau held in their 
honor didn't discourage them 
much, either. Hula skirts, 
native food, leis for everyone, 
and traditional Hawaiian 
dancing occupied the eve- 
ning's birth of memories. 

Sydney, Australia, prom- 
ised more excitement for 
SMC's orchestra as they con- 
tinued their concert tour in the 
world's smallest continent. A 
harbor tour of the city includ- 
ed a stop at the Sydney Opera 
House, internationally known 
as an architectural wonder. 

The structure, outside re- 
sembling huge scallop shells 
closed over the roof, still 
regularly wins architectural 
prizes after twelve years of 
existence. Indeed, some Aus- 
tralians feel one hasn't visited 
Australia until one sees the 
Sydney Opera House. 

The Sydney zoo quickly 
became a favorite with the 
help of Koala bears, wombats, 
kangaroos, wallabies, duck- 
billed platypuses, and other 
native attractions. 1 under- 
stand Phil Gilbert was mistak- 
en for a Koala bear by one of 
the native girls. 1 don't know 
what that means either; you'll 
have to ask him. 

Scheduled to perform only 
one concert at Sydney, the 
orchestra shook off exhaus- 
tion, jet lag and inconvenience 

to play upon request two full 
two-hour concerts in one eve- 
ning to enthusuastic recep- 

Next stop in Australia. 
Avondale Adventist College, 
reigns as the origin of many 
opinions in our church. Oh, 
back to the orchestra . . .At 
Avondale College in Cooran- 
bong, they performed for an 
audience of over 1300 people, 
mostly students. In Brisbane 
the orchestra had the oppor- 
tunity to entertain in one of 
the city's most beautiful con- 
cert halls. 

While in Brisbane, a visit to 
the world's largest water slide 
permanently erased any mem- 
ories of Raccoon Mountain. 
Canberra, the capital of Aus- 
tralia, offered still more sight- 
seeing adventures, including 
the American embassy. 

In Melborne the SMC or- 
chestra again went first class, 
playing in the brand new 
concert hall which was re- 
cently buih for (he Melbourne 
Symphony Orchestra. 

Expecting quiet, reserved 
audiences in New Zealand, the 
orchestra faced an uncharac- 
teristically appreciative recep- 
tion. Their audience shouted, 
yelled and clapped, bringing 
them back for several encores. 
For the flight into Aukland, 
New Zealand, the orchestra 
had to separate and travel in 
two planes. No plane was 
large enough to transport the 
70 plus members as well as all 
their equipment. Dr. Orlo 
Gilbert, symphony conductor, 
left on the earlier flight which 
arrived in plenty of time for 
the 7:30 concert. However, at 
7:15, when the other flight had 
still not arrived, the reassur- 
ance of the public relations 
man, "Don't worry; nobody 
starts on lime in this coun- 
try" refused to calm Dr. 
Gilbert's fears. The other half 
of the orchestra arrived at 
approximately 7:28, and the 

performance went on as sched- 
uled. Well done. Dr. Gilbert! 

The tropical delights of the 
Fiji Islands met the orchestra 
immediately as the Seventh- 
day Adventist pastor greeted 
them in a traditional island 
skirt. While sightseeing and 
splashing in the surf on Fiji's 
beautiful beaches, the orches- 
tra stayed at Fulton College 
where classes were cancelled 
for their visit. (SMC take note 
of proper hospitality to musi- 
cal performers. I understand 
the orchestra will play their 
home concert on . . .) The 
orchestra members stayed in 
the dormitories at Fulton, and 
by the night of their concert, 
they were well acquainted 
with the students. Their 
top-flight performance subse- ^^ 
quently "brought the house ' 
down," ; 

the highlights of the trip. 

During intermission, the or- 
chestra enjoyed various island 
cultural dances, sword twirl- 
ing, knife throwing and fire 
baton acts. Each member 
received a handwoven palm 
branch hat as a gift. 

After an emotional parting 
from Fulton College the or- 
chestra anticipated their last 
scheduled performance at 
Suva, where they were housed 
by the top government offi- 
cials and ambassadors of the 



country. Expecting only a 
small audience for the the 
concert, the orchestra played 
before a packed house; more 
people than attended had to 
be turned away. As in Hawaii, 
each member received a lei at 
the reception following their 
con.crt. The orchestra was 
highly received; expressions 
of thanks, cordiality and 
friendliness surrounded them. 
The Fijians hugged them and 
would not let them go. 

Ambassador Bodde of the 

Fiji Islands told Dr. GilW" 
that the appearance 01

of the most significant thin 
America has done for the ■• J 
Islands since World War "■

with Hawaiian flagball, here 
are a few of the rules, some 
differing widely from regular 

1. Two 2S-minute halves 
with two time outs per half. 

2. Six players per team. 

3. First downs made by 
crossing one of the twenty 
yard lines in four downs or 

4. There may be three 
exchanges per down either 
forward or backward. The ball 
must be passed over the goal 

5. Tied games remain as

Zobler interviews potential dieticians 

Dr. Kathleen Zobler, the 
first Seventh-day Adventist to 
become an officer of the 
American Dietetics Associa- 
tion, spoke with interested 
SMC students September 14 
and 15 about food-related 
careers. Dr. Zobler was in 
Collegedale to interview stu- 
dents for the Loma Linda 
University School of allied 
Health Professions in Loma 
Linda, California. 

Dr. Zobler is Director of 
Dietetics Education at Loma 
Linda and has been actively 
involved for the past 14 years 
with the 42.500-member ADA. 
She was recently elected pre- 

sident of the association and 
will take office in September 
of 1982. 

Dr. Zobler sees a good 
future for dieticians, especial- 
ly within the SDA church. 
"Dietetics is a growing field," 
she said, "and is related to 
one of tlie church's main 
thrustS"the medical field." 
Zobler pointed out that the 
demand for dieticians in Ad- 
ventist hospitals and institu- 
tions has already outstripped 
the supply, 

Dr. Zobler also talked about 
the direction she plans to lead 
the ADA. the licensing board 
for dieticians. "We are anx- 

ious to improve the standards 
of dietetics education and 
practice." Dr. Zobler said. 
"The ADA also plans to 
become more active in legisla- 
tion concerning national nutri- 
tional policy and consumer 
education," she added. 

When asked to comment on 
cutbacks in the School Lunch 
Program, which affects the 
nutrition of millions of Ameri- 
can children. Dr. Zobler re- 
plied, "Of course the budget 
cuts will affect the school 
lunch program. But this is a 
time of budget austerity, and 
this program is no exception to

Biology trail cleared 

Have you ever looked at the 
beautiful countryside around 
your school and longed to be 
'lut in the middle of it. to enjoy 
Ihe beauty and peacefulness 
of nature? If so. you may have 
wondered. "How can 1 get up 
10 that mountain top without 
clawing through briars and 
beating off yellow jackets to do 
"'" Or. you may have 
thought. ■■Yeah, I'd love to 
^cc a baby rabbit, or a 
bubbling brook, but I'm not 
about to don combat boots and 
a backpack to see one!" 

The solution to your prob- 
lem is the Biology Trail, which 
IS owned by the College and 
maintained by the Biology 
Department. For the past 
three weeks, a crew of six 
have been blistering their 
hands and breaking their 
backs while clearing and re- 
pairing the trail after the 
summer's neglect and inces- 
sant plant growth. The trails, 
which wind through miles of 
beautifully wooded areas are 
ready for you hikers 

are these trails? The main trail 
starts just behind Hackman 
Hall, off Industrial Rd. From 
that main trail you will find a 
bewildering array of other 
secondary paths branching 

Trail improvement contin- 
ues along with plans for signs 
indicating the trail's name, 
distance, elevation and destin- 
ations. A brochure with a map 
is being planned which will 
correspond with these signs to 
help vou pick the right trail. 

For you horse lovers, there 
are a couple of trails for riding 
also. These have been grown 
over for some time, but not 
anymore. All the trails

What an excellent way to 
get out in God's nature, 
especially on a beautiful Sab- 
bath afternoon. Don't let the 
name '■Biology Trail" scare

with a friend. So the next time

Southern cynic 

by Steve Dickerhoff J 

I guess most of you know 
what they say about women, 
"You can't live with them and 
you can't live without them." 

Personally, I happen to 
think that women are all right. 
They keep their hair combed; 
they wear perfume, and they 
change their bed sheets more 
than once a semester. But 
lately, I have gotten a little 
upset about all the uproar over 
the Equal Rights stuff. Sure, I 
think women are people, but 
they are objects none-the-less. 
Why can't they just accept 
their function in society? 

I don't see why alt these 
girls are belly-aching. They 
have it made. They don't have 
to worry about grades; all they 
have to worry about is snag- 

ging a pre-med. Their biggest 
challenge during the day is 
squeezing into their designer 

There are just two places a 
women should be: one is in the 
khchen, and the other one 
they wouldn't let me print. 
Some people may say that I'm 
a chauvinist. On the contrary, 
I plan to give my wife every- 
thing that she has ever wanted

The annual Student Asso- 
ciation Joker is due out the 
first part of October and, 
according to Darrel Starkey, 
Joker editor, this year's pro- 
mises to be one of the best yet. 
Starkey, along with Kathy

has been putting in some late 
hours putting the final pic-

cost of the publication is 
projected to be about $8,500, 
with $4,000 coming from ad

compiled by Patti Gentry 

What is your opinion of SMC's Student 

Suzanne Davis; sophomore: computer science: Charlotte. NC: I 
thinlt this year's SA is doing a very fine job. The "Big Bash" 
was definitely a smash and the ice cream sundaes were 
absolutely divine. (I was paid good money to say this.) 

Ken Rozell:freshman:Business and Journalism, CoUegedale, 
TN: What the SA has done so far has been good. They have an 
adequate-sized budget so hopefully the officers will plan lots of 
excellent entertainment and programs. 

Khonda Hallock:junior:medical secretary:Blackstop,SC:l think 
•he paper's better this year; the SA president is the best we've 
<!»er had and he's friendly, and the programs are well-planned. 

Oennis Dodd:sopkomore:husiness managemenl:Powell. V/Y-- 
"" fhings I've seen them do here have been pretty organized 
and interesting, but frankly I haven't seen them do that much. 

'^•^'h Fillman:senior:nursing:Belhlehem. PA: So far things 
'ook good. I hop;, tijjj yj3^ ,1,5 students in Orlando will be 
Jf Agnized by the SA. Last year we (Orlando) never heard from 

or needed: a stove, a vacuum 
cleaner, and a washer. 

I have this theory that God 
created women just to show us 
guys how lucky we are and to 
give men something to do 
before football came along. 
But really, I think women 
perform a great service for 
men. Have you ever thought 
of the consequences if men 
were the ones who had the 

babies? Just think of a man 
going into labor on Sunday 
afternoon, or even worse 
Monday. There goes the 
game. Unless, of course, they 
can bring a TV into the 
delivery room. 

Women won't admit it, but 
they love their role as the 
weaker sex. They are just like 
dogs: pat them on the head 
once in awhile and they'll love 

you till the day they die. 
Reminds me of my last date . . 
.it was about six years ago. 
She kept wanting me to open 
all the doors for her. Well, 
what did she think I was, her 
slave or something? 

By the way, I happen to be 
free this weekend, so if any 
girl wants to be blessed with 
the presence of a man, the 
number's 4694. 

Students published 

Two short stories written in 
Dr. Wilma McClarty's College 
Composition class last school 
year have "been accepted for 
publication. Kevin Siver's 
story "Too Late" will appear 
in the September 26 issue of 
Guide under a new title "I 
Haven't Told You . . ." Kevin, 
a senior chemistry major, 
wrote the story out of a true 
parental death experience in 
his family. 

Dennis Schreiner, a current 
sophomore theology major, 
wrote his story "Fighting for 
Jesus" using a satiric ending 
to give its theme punch. 
Although the story captures a 
childhood experience, the 
maturity of the theme makes it 
more appropriate to adults 
than to children. Consequent- 
ly, it has been accepted for 
publication by the Adventist 

Both stories were winners in 
the English Department's 

Dennis Scfirelncr hm 

by the R«vl*w. 
annual writing contest. Said 
one editor of these two stories, 
"Dennis and Kevin have both 
come up with excellent short 
stories. I like the tremendous 
satire in "Fighting for Jesus' 
and appreciate the pathos of 
'Too Late,' I heartily congrat- 

■n artlcl* aooaplad for puMlcalfon 

ulate them . . ." 

Dr. McCIarty also reports 
that at least a dozen other 
composition students had let- 
ters-to-the-editor published in 
a variety of magazines, rang- 
ing from secular Glamour to 
the religious Insight.

Knittel awarded medallion 



^ Dr. Frank Knittel, President 
of Southern Missionary Col- 
ently awarded the 
prestigous Charles E. 
Weniger Medallion. The 
^ward is given each year to 
• Seventh-day Adventist leaders 
JA'ho exhibit" standards of ex- 
cellence in their leadership 

" The Weniger Medallion, 
ppresented Dr. Knittel at 
■^Andrews University on Sep- 
tember 16. has been presen- 
ted to outstanding church 
leaders since 1974. 
The medallion is a memorial 
3 Dr. Charles Weniger, Dean 
of the Seminary from 1946 to 
During most of those 
years he taught Homiletics, 
influencing preaching in 
SDA church as much, if not 
more, than any single person 
According to Dr. W 
Beaven, a member of the 
Weniger Medallion presenta 
committee and the pre 
ter of. Dr. Knittel's award 
as largely Dr. Weniger's 
drive that is the reason for the 
church's seminary today. 

When Dr. Weniger died of 
cancer in the early 60's, a 
group of his former colleagues 

and students established the 
Weniger Medallion. The 
medallion is a bust of this 
theological educator and pio- 
neer, and is presented to those 
who show the same spirit in 
their work as he did. 

Dr. Beaven explained that 
there were three reasons why 
Dr. Knittel was picked as the 
recipient of this year's award. 

First, Knittel has excelled 
as a teacher. "One of the best 
teachers alive," was the way 
Dr. Beaven expressed it. 

Second, the medallion's 
new owner has been President 
and Dean of SMC for many 
years-a college that, up until 
this year, has experienced un- 
equaled growth. 

Finally. Dr. Knittel as a 
person is remarkable. "I was 
thrilled for him to have been 
selected to receive this most 
coveted award, ' ' the Presi- 
dent's secretary, Jeanne 
Davis, exclaims. "Truly he is 
a man for all seasons!" 

Kenneth Blanton, Assistant 
Vice-President of Student 
Affairs at Andrew's Univer- 
sity, was at the colloquium 
when Knittel recieved his 
award and reports that the 

President Knittel, recipient of the Weniger Medallion, pauses from a busy s 

recipient was "speechless- The second of this year's 

which is unusual lur him." iwu rccipieiils was Dr. David 

Elder Zackrison, Religion Lin, President of the China 

professor and personal friend Division when the Com- 

of Dr. Knittel, stated that he munists took over. Dr. Lin has 

felt the award was well just recently been released 

deserved. "There is nobody I from prison after spending 26 

know who deserves it more," years in confinement. 

Zackrison commented. Unable to leave the country. 

Dr. Lin accepted the award 
through his son in a ceremony 
held in California. 

Presentation committee 
members feel the spirit of Dr. 
Charles Weniger lives on in 
lives of men like Dr. David Lin 
and Dr. Frank Knittel.

the country. 

After numerous committee 
meetings, the future for these 
magazines still looks uncer- 
tain, but at least some deci- 
sions have been made. 

Insight, targeted mainly at 
juniors and seniors in acade- 
my, and freshmen and sopho- 
mores in college, will be 
continuing as a separate pub- 
lication published by the Re- 
view and Herald publishing 
association. The recent ru- 
mors about Insight's being 
included with the new acade- 
my lesson quarterly, Comer- 
stone Connections, beginning 
in January, 1982. are "cate- 
gorically untrue" according to 
Dan Fahrbach, currently 
serving as managing editor of 
Insight. . 

Fahrbach felt that "Insight 
has been crippled by rumors 
about its questionalbe fu- 
ture." He mentioned Umon 

College and the College Peo- 
ple staff as plausible sources 
for many of the rumors. 
College Poeple is a new inter- 
collegiate publication financed 
by Union College Youth minis- 

"We definitely see oursel- 
ves moving into that void 
created by Insight's being 
directed to academy audi- 
ences." Doug Morgan, editor 
of College People, stated in a 
telephone interview. "I don't 
think the magazine (College 
People) would have been 
started" without awareness of 
the future plans of Insight. 

Larry McGill. Union College 
chaplain, explained that the 
impetus for College People 
began back in November of 
1981, whereas Insight's future 
was discussed in committee in 
March. 1981. 

McGill said that across 
North America, college pre- 
sidents, chaplains. Union 
youth directors and the Ad- 
ventist Intercollegiate Associ- 
ation as groups all voted that 

3f public 
college age young adults was 
needed. Insight attempted to 
reach too large an audience, 
seemed to be the general 

Indeed, on March 19, 1981, 
at a committee meeting held 
in Washington. D.C.. the deci- 
sion was made that Insight 
would include the new quar- 
terly, Cornerstone Connec- 
tions, and be targeted to 
grades 9 through 12. 

On Tuesday. September 22, 
however, another committee 
decision ensured Insight's 
continuing as a separate pub- 
lication; in the words of Fahr- 
beach, "Insight is carrying on 
as it has for the last 11 years." 
Elder Les Pitton, youth 
director for the North Ameri-

Dear Editor: 

1 just spent a very, amused 
moment reading last week's

seems there's a gentleman on

slightly out-dated opinion of comfort when

are great in those places, and 
men probably wouldn't care to

But women are great in 

other areas as well. There are 

many competent female doc- 
tors, judges, administrators, 

ad infinitum. Women are 

equally intelligent and equally 

talented to men. Their strug- 
gle for equal pay and equal 

recognition seems fair to me. 
Women DO love their role 

as the weaker sex. Nothing is 

more flattering than being 

pursued, being treated special 

and being complimented. A

October 1, 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 


As a balancing addendum 
to. and not an attack on, the 
generally fine article entitled 
"Directions," I would like to 
stress that there are many 
important, appropriate occas- 
ions for destructive criticism, 
biting sarcasm, and lamenta- 
tion-especially directed to our 
very own societies and reli- 
gious establishments, as well 
as those of others. 

On Mt. Carmel Elijah 
hooted "Baal is a god, right? 
Yell louder;maybe he'll wake 

Ever hear the word jere- 
miad! Jeremiah was almost 
continually pleading for 
change, lamenting, and damn- 

The major function of most 
of the prophets was not to 
predict the future but to rail 

To the Editor of the Accent: 

i he SMC campus has been 
the recipient of some shrill 
carping lately, not from the 
Accent fortunately, but from 
various other publications 
such as the Collegedale Tid- 
ings and miscellaneous letters 
distributed to college students 
and the general public. 

In these publications seve- 
ral members of the theology 
department have been ac- 
cused of heresy and conduct 
inconsistent with Christian 
behavior. I know that many of 
(he charges are false-state- 
ments taken out of context and 
gravely distorted, either 
through ignorance or malice. 

This group of religion tea- 
chers have dedicated their 
lives to the preaching and 
teaching ministry. They have 
spent years in Bible study and 
in the training of young mini- 
sters. Their labors have been 
blessed as year after year 
eager young workers are 
added to God's remnant 
church. My three sons have 
sat in their classes and grown 
spiritually from the exper- 

against and reform the sup- 
posedly Bible-based systems 
into which they were bom. 

Rabbi Jesus is famous for 
the vile language ("white- 
washed death houses," 
"snakes," "hypocrites," 

' ' oppressors, ' ' ' 'unwashed 
dishes," "blind guides," and 
so on) which he effec/vely 
used on his opponents within 
the religious establishment 
that he was raised to believe 

Martin Luther attached a 
lengthly list of hard-hitting 
complaints to the door of his 
college church. 

Superstitions, legends, mis- 
conceptions, malpractices, 
and suppression must be bull- 
dozed aside in order for model 
housing to rise in place of 

People who consider it faith- 
less to question what is be- 
lieved to be sarcastic, imprac- 
tical to attempt extensive 
changes, probably vt'ould not 
have listened to Elijah when 
he jabbed, "How long will you 
all hobble first on one foot and 
then on another, between the 
real God and what you've 
been taught around here!" 
(paraphrased). Nor would they 
have listened to most of the 
other prophets, reformers and 
would-be-reformers, who have 
blared since. 

These non-questioners, non- 
criticizers. non-changers, 

have become like their idols 
(whether metallic statues, 
statements of beliefs, or reli- 
gious heirarchies which can 
neither hear nor see. 

R. Harvey Habenicht III 

The Collegedale Tidings 
front-paged a number of ques- 
tions; I'd like to ask a few of 
my own. Who are the 
accusers—these people whose 
names are signed to the letters 
and communiques? How many 
years of study have they 
devoted to the Bible? How 
many evangelistic meetings 
have they held? How many 
souls have they led to Christ? 
In what ways have they proved 
their positive and material 
contribution to the furtherance 
of the Lord's work? In what 
ways have they demonstrated 
conduct consistant with 
Christ's teaching? "By their 
fruits ye shall know them." 

By this time a great many 
people will have heard the 
complaint, people who are 
required by their offices to 
investigate the charges, peo- 
ple who are empowered to 
bring about any needed 

And if none of these will 
hear or act? Then one might 

begin to wonder about the 
validity of his course. Cer- 
tainly, one could be assured 
that he had done everything 
required of him to make his 
cause known in a proper way. 
The burden is no longer his; it 
is the Lord's and the Lord will 
deal with the problem in His 

But, instead, to spread 
these seditious publications 
far and wide, to confuse 
readers who are ignorant of 
the issues and who have no 
way of learning the "other 
side", to assassinate the cha- 
racters of professional men 
who would not nor can not 
retaliate with a rebuttal pub- 
lication-! wonder what the 
accusers will answer when the 
Lord asks, "What were you 
doing for my flock in Septem- 
ber 1981?" 

I grieve for our theology 

department; and I grieve for 

those who have set themselves 

up against them in this way.

Dear Editor: 

As the former instructor of 
the course Women and Poli- 
fical Issues, I wish to disclaim 
any connection between Mr. 
Dickerhoff s redneck remarks 
about women in the Septem- 
ber 24 Accent and the philo- 
sophy and ideas he allegedly 
learned in that course. 

Frankly, I was shocked by 
the article "Southern Cynic." 
If it is meant as a satire, it is in 
very poor taste. If Steve really 
meant what he said, I hope 
many Thathcer residents will 
call him up and give him their 
frank comments on his social 

The ancient Greek 
etymology for cynic means 
"Dog-like" from Kyon or dog. 
Certainly Mr. Dickerhoffs 
ideals for women place them 
in the doghouse socially and 
intellectually. From a state- 
ment he made to me last 
Wednesday, he fully expects 
to be spending some time 
there himself, but, as he said, 
"It is really worth it." Is it 

Cynics believe that people 
are motivated in all their 
actions entirely by selfishness. 
Is that your creed? If so, you 
may want to re-evaluate your 
committment to Christianity, 
for how can any man treat a 
being created in the image of 
God as an animal; for as Steve 

writes, "they are like dogs: 
pat them on the head once in 
awhile and they'll love you 'til 
the day they die." 

Archie Bunker can get 
laughs on gangs like that, but 
a Seventh-day Adventist 
Christian? Think again, Mr.

Dear Editor: 

At this time I would like to 
take a moment of silence for 
the Green Bay Packers. Seems 
that they are Coach Jaecks 
favorite team and have been 
humiliated by three other 
teams so far. They could've 
beaten the Atlanta Falcons if 
they would have quit after 3 
quarters. But no, they couldn't 
quit while they were ahead 
and gave up 31 points in the 
4th quarter. 

Even our own talented Mike 
Burks picked them over the 
Minnesota Vikings. Mike 
should know that Minnesota is 
going to win the NFC Central 
again, but, no, he will learn by 
his mistakes. 

In closing, I would like to 
congratulate Jaecks on his 
deviation. Not many people 
would stick with a team that 
stinks so bad. I can imagine 
the rebuttal 1 will receive next 
week. As always,

Round-Robin Approach." 
Vhen you get up in the

ui tired and wouldn't get a

ave it this evening before I go

■Is the 'Spirit ' Moves 
One of the most disgusting 
liiiigs about Bible students is 
ii'jir systematic study of the 
'^riptures. They plan days, 

to it! To me this inhibits the 
Lord and the Holy Spirit. I 
mean, can't they show you 
what to read on a certain day? 
My suggestion is the "Flip-n- 
Point Method." It works like 
this: First, close your eyes. 
Then flip through your Bible, 
allowing in to open in a 
random manner. Finally, point 
to a text. If you land on two 
texts pick a) the shortest of the 
two. or b) the one that will 
cause the least mental think- 
ing. If however, you feel you 
must plan your study, at least 
begin with such chapters as 1 
Chronicles MO; Ezra 2. Ne- 
hemiah 7, or Daniel 11. What- 
ever you do, don't begin with 
the gospels of Mark or John. 
Those are only for the simple 

Do it on your Own 

Though some would disagree, 
there really isn't any need to 
ask the Holy Spirit to help you 
in understanding the Bible. 
God gave us minds and He 
expects us to use them. If He 
wanted you to be able to 
understand all of the Bible, He 
would have made sure it was 
written more clearly. Besides, 
it is unrealistic to think that 
YOU could receive supernatu- 
ral help. God is close, but not 
that close. 


self-fulfilling prophecy and 
see- how your accuracy in- 
creases in proportion to these 
powerful negative thoughts. 

W Minutes or Less 

This guideline will assure 
that you never have time to 
get excited about what you are 
reading in the Bible. If you 
have an 8:00 class, plan your 
worship for 7:40. This gives 
you just enough time for the 
"Flip-n-Point" method (see 
above), and will even allow a 
few seconds for prayer before 
dashing off to class. This is 
good for the legalist who feels 
that he must have some sort of 
worship before beginning the

Hawaiian flagbail teams 

have been chosen and the 

exciting SMC football season 

commences on Monday. The 

A league teams look pretty 

close and here is a rundown of 


Arellano: good mbtture of 

speed and hands. Look for 

quick passes and pitch outs, 

Durby: This team has more 
speed than most, but might 
be hurt by its lack of a good 


Natie: This should be 
basketball team, not 
ball squad. It does have a 
couple of speedsters. 

Jaecks: Probably the slow- 
est team. This club has an 
awful lot of talent. The 
slowness could hurt. 

O'Brien: Look for one style 
of play. If this team can 
connect on its passes, it will 
decimate the league. 

Pro forecast 

by Mike Burks 
As Hank Stram said on 
National Radio last Monday 
night, "so far this season has 
been totally unpredictable." 
I'll have to go along with that 
as the underdogs won at least 
six of the fourteen games last 
weekend. Going 8 and 6 for 
the weekend brings my total to 
33 and 23 so far. Things have 
got to improve. 

With the Falcons failing to 
find their usual favor with the 
officials, they fell from the 
ranks of the undefeated. The 
same holds true for the San 
Diego Chargers. Craig Morton

When it first appeared on 

I campus, very few said any- 

■ thing about it. When it re- 
Imained. people were curious. 

■ Now that work has been in 
I progress on it, everyone is 

■ asking about the little house 
Idown by the gym. The one 

■ question that was uppermost 

■ in everyone's mind was, 

■ "What's it going to be?" 

I I had wondered this myself 

■ for quite some time and so was 

■ particularly gratified when the 

■ article in the last Accent came 

■ out about the mysterious 
Istructure. But I must admit, I 

I little skeptical when I 
Ifound out that it was just 

■ going to sit there to remind 

■ the alumni of the good old 

■ days. Somehow, it just didn't 
I sound like SMC to do all that 

■ work for nothing. I was posi- 
Itive that a secret plan for the 
llittle house was in the making. 

■ Last night. I got the real story 
I from some of my trusted 

■ friends in Wright Hall. 

1 "The dorm has gotten a 
llittle full lately," said one of 
I the deans in a hushed voice, 
that we make this 

place the new guest house, 
and call it 'Visitor's Village.' It 
will be especially handy dur- 
ing Alumni homecoming." 

"I don't know," whispered 
a teacher. "Since it used to 
house students, I think we 
should set it up again for the 
seniors who need practice 
getting out on their own and 
managing their own home. 
They have to leave the dorm 
some time, you know." 

Another man spoke up. I 
didn't recognize him, since 
he'd obviously never been on 
campus before. "Some of you 
may not know me, so let me 
just introduce myself as a 
representative from the phone 
company down here. Now, 
we've had our eyes on this 
little place for quite a while 
and would be happy to pur- 
chase it from you. We'd like to 
condense our mulit-million 
dollar racket into the small- 
town, friendly service it was 
originally intended to be, and 
we think this would be the 
ideal location for our opera- 
tion, since we'd be so easy to 
reach there." This was the 

first idea I thought was worth 

About this time, one of the 
campus security officers lean- 
ed forward. "Personally, we 
down in Security would like to 
use the little place to store 
things in-things like illegally 
parked cars that we've towed 
' A'ay. There's been quite a 
few lately, and the guest 
rooms in Thatcher are getting 
harder and harder to reach. 
Besides, as our dear sister 
said, the rooms are filling 
up." He started to motion 
toward the dean but to every- 
one's surprise she had left. 


Since 1 was the only student 
present, 1 felt it was time I did 
my part for my fellow class- 
mates. I raised my hand. 
"Friends," I began, "let us 
not forget that this campus is 
for the students. We are 
paying for the very best in 
everything here. What I 
believe this school needs is a 
nice, classy jeans shop." 

Noting the sudden menac- 
ing looks on the faces of those 
around me, I hurriedly added, 
"You could leave a space on 
the shelves where the blue 
ones should be, and just call it 

'The Gap' or something." 
With relief I noted that the 
smiles had returned and were, 
in fact, getting bigger. 

"Not a bad idea," said the 
security officer. "But folks, it 
is almost midnight, and I 
really need to go out and check 
on everything.." Just then, 
another teacher came rushing 
into the room. 

"Guess whati" he an- 
nounced breathlessly. "Not 
that it really matters right 
now, but SOMEONE JUST 

It figures.

Saturday night, September 
1 26, offered the student body 
I two films for a variety of 
I entertainment. 

The earliest of the two 
[started at 8:00 p.m. in the 
I Thatcher Hall worship room. 
I It was the first in a series of 
humanities films coordinated 
I by professor Brian Strayer of 
I the History Department. The 
I title, "How Green Was My 
I Valley" perfectly fitted this 
I moving film about life in a 
mid-I9th century Welsh min- 
I ing town. 

The second film option was 
I shown in the cafeteria starting 
at 8:30 p.m. The hilarious 
1 Walt Disney production "No 
iDeposit-No Return," a film 
I about two kids trying to get 
I away from their boring grand- 
I father who team up with two

The Walt Disney film was 
not lacking in attendance. The 
pizza, soda, and ice cream that 
were available created long 
lines. The cafeteria, filled to 
capacity, gathered every chair 
from nearby rooms. Many 
people were still forced to 
stand in the back. An unplan- 
ned second showing was made 
available. The film brought 
very positive response, ev£ 
though there was a fifteen 
minute delay caused by a 
broken plug connection. Bill 

Shelton, a junior pre-dental 
student said, "I thought it 
a little crowded, but it 

Evans, when asked how he 
deemed the attendance said, 
"Excellent." He added that it 
was the best attendance he 
had seen since the cafeteria 
sponsorship of movies began 
last year. Six more such 
movies are scheduled for this 
school year. 

Some questions were raised 
about competition between 
the humanities film and the 
Walt Disney film, but Dean 
Schlisner. who helped with the 
scheduling said. "There was 
no conflict intended." He 
ftirther commented that the 
two events at the same time 
were just to give an option to 
the students. 

Whatever the case, both 
films were enjoyed by their 
audiences, and more of each

Destiny, the Christian dra- 
ma group sponsored by Cam- 
pus Ministries, is ready to 
hold its auditions for the fall 

The drama group has a new 
director this year, Alan Mc- 
Rae. Mr. McRae is a native of 
Ocala, Florida and a former 
student of SMC. 

Approximately fifteen ac- 
tors and actresses will be 
chosen to participate in the 
group this semester. 

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 stages. 

The style of the group is 
simple. There will be no 
excessive costumes or props. 
The setting is left to the 
imagination of the viewer. 
This allows the audience to 
participate in the play in a 
special way. 

During the 1980-81 school 
year, Destiny was able to 
travel to most of the acade- 
mies in the Southern Union 
and performed at many of the 
local churches as well. 

The group hopes to again 
visit the academies, and hope- 
fully, increase the number of 
churches it performs for. 

This is an interesting oppor- 
tunity for having a Christian 
witness through developing 
and using your acting abili- 
ties. If you would like to have a 
part in this special ministry, 
please take note of the audi- 
tion schedule below and be 
sure to come. All are welcome 
to audition. 

Auditions are set for Octo- 
ber 6, 8 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. 
in the Student Center Cube 
Room. PLEASE NOTE: Those 
whose last name begins with 
letters A-I will audition on

concept of how much individ-

opposed to the R & H publish-

31,000 and 32,000 last year, 
has never equaled that of Its

Donald John, former editor 
of Insight, left a few weeks 
ago to pastor a church in 
Oxford, England, where he is 
currently working on a doctor- 
al degree. 

Elder PItton quickly pointed 

out that although Insight's 
circulation remains danger- 
ously close to the necessary 
30,000 subscriptions, most if 
not all SDA publications are 
heavily subsidized by the 
church, not just Insight.

accept advertising, both secu- 
lar and denominational, to 
help defray some of its expen-

hasty a decision had been 
made in March regarding 
Cornerstom Connections and

SMC tightens financial belt 

by Tom Hunter 

Campus-wide budget cuts 
are in order for Southern 
Missionary College following 
a decision reached by the 
College Board of Trustees. 
The Board decided that SMC 
needs to cut the budget by at 
least another $150,000 for this 

year. The decision was reach- 
ed following examinaJi.Q^n of 
the college's projected budget 
for this year. 

The projected budget put 
out last year was based on a 
group decision that enrollment 
would experience a decrease

Snack bar opens 

Offering hope that some 
things still do happen on time,

"delicacies" offered at our 

Eider K. R. Davis, the 
coordinator, shared the main 
purpose of the new snack bar: 

"e see the snack bar as a 
^wial retreat to bring together 
^ lot of the students who 
perhaps have no other place to 
go. and to provide a social 
environment where friends 
'^an meet." 

Including a bar complete

of about 30 students. This 
figure was drastically miscal- 
culated and the actual enroll- 
ment of over 250 students less 
than last year resulted in the 
loss of over a million dollars in 
revenue for the college. 

Several proposals for the 
reduction of spending are 
under scrutiny at this time, 
including the termination of 
some college staff. Business 
Manager Richard Reiner was 
hesitant to give specific areas 
of cut-backs as the proposals 
had yet to be discussed by an 
Internal Review committee. 

He did relate several facts 
of interest, however, which he 
feels will be incorporated into 
the future plans of the college. 
Ultimately, economizing can 
recover most of the loss. 

Though the academic pro- 
gram will remain stable at 
SMC. the smaller elective 
classes will be closely examin- 
ed and are prime candidates 
for the budget axe next year. 

There will also be this year 
the basic reductions of spend- 
ing in travel, and students will 
be sought to fill positions 
currently filled by adults in the 


Though basic services to the 
students will continue, a pos- 
sibility for savings was cited 
as being the elimination of 
student insurance coverage 
for next year. 

Reiner also feels that there 
is substantial room for savings 
in the area of energy conser- 
vation. Presently, TVA is con- 
ducting a survey on campus 
which could result in a 5 
per cent decrease in the utility 
expenses of the college. This 
will be a substantial amount as 
the utility bills have been 
running over $600,000 per 
year, and the proposed reduc- 
tions will amount to about 

Reiner feels these steps for 
future-as well as present- 
cut-backs are necessary as the 
budget problem is not going to 
go away. 

He speculated that there 
will be a low enrollment again 
next year, the main reasons 
being the reduction in federal 
aid to students, lower num- 
bers of academy seniors this 
year, a generally smaller num- 

ber of 18-year-olds in America 
and the ever present possi- 
bility of a military draft. These 
factors indicate that enroll- 
ments will remain stable or 
continue to drop until 1986. 

As a result of the financial 
state of the college, the Com- 
munications building, pre- 
sently under construction and 
slated for completion in 12 to 
18 months, will not likely be 
completed for two to three 

The possibility for future 
tuition increases is present as 
Southern Missionary College 
presently has the lowest cost 
per credit hour of all Adventist 
institutions. If tuition were to 
go up, it would be comparable 
to other similar colleges. 

Outside of the dismissal of 
some staff members and over- 
all expense control, Reiner 
feels that a mere "shifting of 
resources" will be sufficient to 
get the college through the 
year. He also made it a special 
point that no student will lose 
his or her job. "Departments 
cannot cut staff to please us by 
cutting student labor," he

His confidence about the 
future of the snack bar seems 
well-supported by student-

barely a step up from barba- 
rism. So I'm asking, who's 
really the animal here? We're 
supposed to be adults now-- 

In this time of gradually 
advancing women's lib it is 
good to recall that one cannot 
truly gain equality by being 
closed-minded to ideas that 
are contrary to one's own. If 
the dear residents of Thatcher 
are so opposed to chauvinism, 
then 1 suggest they open the 
doors, pull out the chairs, etc. 
on a fair 50% of their dates 
and that they stop going to 
athjetic events just to watch 
the athletes and start going to 
watch the events. 

1 personally enjoyed Steve's 
article and had no trouble 
remembering its literary gen- 
re-satire. The only problem 
that 1 can see with it is that 
perhaps Steve overestimated 
the maturity and open- 
mindedness of the student 
body and certain faculty mem- 
bers. For all you children that 
hung this man in effigy, called 
him at 3 a.m., made snide 
remarks about him, or brought 
up ignorant references to his 
character, it seems obvious 
that you are neither prepared 
for or deserving of equality- 
much less its consequences. If 
you must resort to such pre- 
pubescent methods to vent 
your frustrations, then you're

1 would like to

the September 24 issue of the 

The "Bible Facts Series" 
purports to give the exact 
numbers of letters, words, 
verses, chapters, and books in 
the Bible (Old Testament) and 
New Testament. Reality ad- 
mits no such statistics, not 
even in the original lan- 
guages, much less in the 
hundreds of translations and 
paraphrases. In the original 
languages (Hebrew and Ara- 
maic for the Bible, Greek for 
the New Testament) different 
manuscripts employ different 
spellings and wordings (thus 
differing numbers of letters 

and words) and delete or add 
whole sentences or para- 
graphs. For instance, some 
Greek manuscripts of the Book 
of John contain the story of the 
woman who did not get stoned 
(with rocks) . nd some don't. 

Verse and rhapter numbers 
were added during the Middle 
Ages and have tiot been 
followed consistently in differ- 
ent editions and versions. 
Even the number of books is 
by no means constant. The 
Hebrew canon has only 24 
books because such pairs (as 
they are commonly consid- 
ered) as I & H Samuel, I & U\ 
Kings. I & II Chronicles and 
Ezra & Nehemiah are each 
considered one book, and 
because the twelve minor 
prophets all together comprise 
one book. The many transla- 
tions divide this same material 

and rearrange the order of the 
books as they very well please, 
as well as adding differing 
books of the Apocrypha and 
New Testament. 

The word Jehovah appears 
zero (0) times in the Bible. 
(Too bad for the Jehovah's 
Witnesses!) The word which 
does appear is the Hebrew-let- 
ter equivalents of YHWH, 
which most Hebrew scholars 
believe was pronounced Yah- 
weh (with the accent on the 
last syllable. 

Presumably the "Bible 
Facts" of the article were 
based on the King James 
Version, about which one sen- 
timental ignoramus said. "If 
the King James Bible was 
good enough for Saint Paul, 
it's good enough for me." 
People like this don't realize 
that not even Old English was 

spoken in the time of Saint 
Paul; that the KJV was itself 
largely a revision of earlier 
English versions; that when it 
first came out it was widely 
considered new-fangled and 
undesireable. or even hereti- 
cal, and was publicly burned 
by various Protestant preach- 
ers, just as has happened to 
several of the newest versions 
here in the "Bible Belt"; that 
the first editions of the KJV 
contained several books of the 
Apocrypha; that h has been 
revised in minor ways from 

time to time; and that the old- 
fashioned. so-called-"Bibli- 
cal" language that it retains 
(Thee. Thou, and it came to 
pass, etc.) is the same sort of 
speech employed in the plays 
(bawdy or otherwise) which 
entertained the theater-goers 
of the time, just as the 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to dispute 
Professor Brian E. Strayer's 
repudiation of Steven Dicker- 
hoff's Southern Cynic article 
nn the supposed inferiority of 

language of the modem ver- 
sions corresponds to the lan- 
guage usages of our own time. 

It is important to realize and 
remember that all translations 
of the Bible and New Testa- 
ment are merely interpreta- 
tions of or commentaries on 
the books as they were first 
written in the languages of 
their own times (and which 
books in the original lan- 
guages exist in several edi- 
tions which vary somewhat 
from one another). With this 
in mind one will avoid absolut- 
izing statistics of components 
or interpretations of individual 

So it is my opinion that the 
King James Version is an 
anachronism and that the 
"Bible Facts" concerning its 
statistical components have no 
utility, religious or otherwise, 
and are misleading. 

R. Harvey Habenicht III 


dedicated backer of equal 
rights than I, but I found Prof. 
Strayer's letter hysterically 
illogical, wildly nonsensical. 
Of course Steve was just 
kidding. Anyone who believed 
he was being serious is very 
mistaken indeed. And those 
people who raised such a stink 
about the article missed the 
main point entirely . . .Mr. 
Dickerhoff was writing a satire 
about male chauvinistic ego, 
and he probably made a few 
male macho pigs sit up and 
re-evaiuate themselves. Far 
from being in "very poor 
taste," Mr. Dickerhoffs arti- 
cle was a service to SMC. It 
escapes me why anybody 
couldn't take it as lightly as it 
was written. 

And I just wonder if Strayer 
would hive ignored the whole 

thing if some female reporter 
had written a satire about 
men. Probably then he would 
have seen it as a truly amusing 

But what rankled me most 
was Strayer's attempted de- 
finition of "cynic." Ellen 
White and the Bible plainly 
state that man, in his normal 
sinful state, is an entirely 
selfish creature bent upon his 
own needs. Only through 
God's grace is this image 
reversed. This is what Strayer 

Well, let me throw a curve 
at you, professor. Tell me, 
what is it that makes a joke 
funny? Why do you laugh? I'll 
tell you . . .it is impossible to 
make a joke without doing it at 
the expense of someone, 
whether he be real or hypo- 
thetical. Analyze every joke 
you hear and you will see what 
I mean. Sometimes the humil- 
iation is inverted and done at 
one's own expense, as in 
Rodney Dangerfield's case, 

but the play on superiority is 
always there. (Riddles are 
funny because there is a pun 
to figure out. and the listener 
laughs because he finds he is 
intelligent enough to figure 
out the pun. This can be 
proven by asking someone 
why pigs can't fiy. When they 
give up, tell them it's because 
pigs have round hoofs. Imme- 
diately the listener will rise to 
the defense of his inability to 
figure the riddle out by telling 
you that you must be out of 

your gourd.) 

Re-examine every "South- 
ern Cynic" article that's ever 
come out. They are always 
done at someone's expense. 
Perhaps this is why Jesus 
never made a single joke in 
the Bible. Or anyone else, for 
that matter. 

What are you going to do. 
Prof. Strayer? Stop telling 
jokes because they aren't 

someone down? And while 
you're at it. why don't you 
start a campaign to remove 
something as obviously un- 
christian as "Southern Cyn- 
ic' ' from the hallowed pages of 
the Southern Accent? 

Yes, I am a cynic . . .but ii 
wasn't until 1 saw the lunacy 
of your religion. I would 
welcome a same-page reply 
from Prof. Strayer. 

Dear Editor:

"Southern Cynic" from the

Dear Editor: 

Was it just 1 that felt a little 
strange in Thatcher Sabbath 
School last Sabbath, or were 
there others who sensed they 
were entering into a double 
feature of Romper Room and 
the Spanish inquisition? 

The singing of "Happy 
Birthday" is all very nice and 
proper, but I question the idea 
of singing it in a Sabbath 
School, and even further ques- 
tion the singing of it's second 
verse ending with applause 
J"<i all the hoopla of the 
Harvard-Yale game. To me. 
'hat isn't proper Sabbath 

Aren't we supposed to be in 
Sabbath School for more than 

just social interaction? Every- 
one knows there's enough of 
that going on in Sabbath 
School anyway. My traditional 
views encourage the feeling 
that this isn't proper respect 
for the worship of God. 

I also witnessed another 
event in the Sabbath School 
that day that goes on in other 
churches all across America. 
The practice of putting people 
on the spot. 

Group interaction is the key 
element in a Sabbath School 
situation, but 1 feel the inter- 
action should be voluntary 
rather than advocating the use 
of draft to get those who don't 

want to talk, or those who just 
don't care what's going on. up 
front. The ones who do know 
what's going on get up there 
with a know-it-all attitude and 
love to show it. 

Let's face it. no one likes to 
be embarassed and by holding 
this sort of Sabbath School 
you're just asking for trouble. 

I think that future Sabbath 
Schools should choose their 
program formats more care- 
fully. The reason: when the 
"amens" are for relief and not 
for appreciation and an under- 
standing, the Sabbath School 
loses much of it's power.

Banquet provides romance and entertainment 


Over 700 people attended 
the Sigma Theta Chi Banquet 
at Lake Arrowhead on October 
4 and 5. The Girl's Club 
sponsored the Sadie Hawkins 
style evening of food and 

Transportation to the ex- 
clusive Georgia resort was 
provided in buses at an extra 
charge while some SMC stu- 
dents drove their cars for the 
two-hour trip. 

The bus drivers had a hard 
time negotiating the steep 
hills around Lake Arrowhead. 
"1 can't believe It happened." 
commented Page Weemes as 
the bus driver calmly 
announced he had broken the 
clutch on the Bluebird bus. 

The banquet was held at the 
country club of the resort. 
nestled next to glassy Lake 
Arrowhead. A towering ceil- 
ing draped the building, while 
rich wood embraced the walls. 

The decorations included 
very elegant smoked glass 

lights, mountain stone and 
hanging plants placed stra- 
tecially throughout the room. 
Moonlight drifted through 
large picture windows that 
faced the wooden broadwalk. 
a romantic veranda overlook- 
ing the lake. 

Dinner was served buffet 
style with a menu of breaded 
squash and okra. corn, 
macaroni and cheese, brocoli 
with cheese sauce, a salad 
bar. fresh fruit and your 
choice of three desserts. 

Pam Dickman. president of 
Sigma Theta Chi. welcomed 
everyone to the banquet and 
thanked the deans, officers 
and everyone who helped 
make the banquet possible. 

Pierre Belhonne, Roger

"These potatoes are cold

"And this manacoti needs 
more cheese!" added Bill. 1 
could hear them yelling from 
my place in the lunch line. 

The Mexican market was 
crowded. The pungent odor of 
decaying jlesh filtered 
through my nose, the type that 
makes you sick to your 
stomach. I walked inside to 
the broken concrete floor, its 
surface covered with pieces of 
meat, dirt, and blood. 

"Some potatoes and peas, 
please," I asked. 

"Would you like some 
manacoti?" a question ans- 
wered me. 

' 'Thank you, ' ' I replied, 

"and some Tun-o fish, too."

The server handed the plate

of the manacoti.

mockingly shrieked from the

Sage performs in competition 

Dr. Robert Sage, Associate 
Professor of Music at SMC, 
recently returned from the 
Ettore Pozzoli International 
piano competition held in 
Sergmo-a small town near 
Milano, Italy. 

Dr. Sage, leaving on the 
10th of September, relaxed 
lext afternoon in Geneva 
with a former piano teacher. 
Harry Datyner, a Swiss with 
whom he had become associa- 
ted in the music department at 
Cologne. He also granted a 
recital in Lausanne, Switzer- 
land before facing the com- 
petition in Sergmo. 
Concerning the pressure 
tperience, Dr. Sage cem- 
ented, "It provides incen- 
\ie to practice hard and gives 
__e the opportunity to discuss 
my playing with an interna- 
Jlv famous jury of pian- 

ists." He added. "It's more 
like a convention, because 1 
learn almost as much as 1| 

The grueling competitive 
schedule goes on for one and a 
half weeks, consisting of four 
rounds of near-perfect execu- 
tion with only four pianists 
competing in the last round. 
Of the 80 pianists who 
entered, 17 did not have to 
play in the first round because 
they were previous prize win- 
ners, and only about 40 other 
entrants actually played in the 
first round. 

Dr. Sage said that the rangd 
in style of music was fairly 
broad, although he had to 
learn a total of two and 
three-quarter hours of music 
by heart -hence the six hours 
of practicing daily! 

Dr. Sage, among the 14 

chosen to play in the second 
round, did not go to the third 
round. He was, however, able 
to listen to the perform: 
up until the last round. He had 
to leave to catch his train to 
Frankfort when the jury' 
deliberation on the winne 
began, but he feels certain 
that Huseyin Sermet, a Turk, 
won the competition. (He does 
have someone writing to him 
to confirm this.) 

The first prize gave the 
winner about $5,000. Usually 
contestants reach for this 
coveted pinnacle for more 
than money, because the prize 
winner not only becomes 
better known, but may also 

gagements as a result. 

About being back home, Dr. 
Sage confessed, "I'm glad to 
be back where there are 
drinking fountains!"

Jogging: can it be fun? 


by SI 

Granted, jogging interrupts 
a lackadaisical lifestyle, but if 
you want a refreshing pick- 
me-up in the evening with no 
headaches or hangovers, 
there's nothing better. 

The secret to successftil, 
fun-filled jogging lies in one's 
mental attitude. If one waits 
until one is dead tired and one 
still has two tests to study for 
before one can go to bed, and 
it's already 11:30, one will 
probably be able to talk one's 
self out of going half the time, 
and the other half the time 
(when one jogs) one will 
thoroughly hate and learn to 

I included jogging sort of on 
the above basis last year. My 
jogging was a "good works" 
duty that 1 had to do and felt 
guilty if I didn'l do. 1 always 
thought about that milkshake 
that I needed to burn off, or 
thai candy bar I wanted to get 
rid of, and so I sweated 
through 6 to 8 laps, struggling 
to lose 5 pounds every night. 
And when 1 went back to my 

room and I still weighed the 
same, I felt like giving up. But 
I knew jogging was good for 
me, so I kept boring myself 
every night, week after week. 

Then I discovered the power 
of positive thinking. I decided 
that I wasn't going to jog just 
because if was good for me but 
because I wanted tol A posi- 
tive attitude is a must if one 
wants to have fun jogging. 

First of all, in the spirit of 
my new attitude, I found 
someone to jog with. What a 
difference that made-even on 
the very first night! And 
instead of waiting till late at 
night to drag my jogging 
partner out to the dull, lifeless 
track, I and my sidekick would 
run the scenic route (this can 
be modified to suit individual 
taste) in the late afternoon or 
early evening. 

Jogging became a time 
when my friend and I could 
gel together and catch up on 
news (not gossip, news). As 
we jogged along talking, be- 
fore I knew it, we had finished 

times, we were even ready to 
run (hrough our route again. I 
had started to love jogging, 
and 1 found myself looking 
forward to when ! could run 

And after my attitude fell in 
line so nicely about jogging.

Now that you've read the 
idealistic gibberish, I would 
like to fill you in on the facts. 
Without a doubt, one of the 
most uncultivated exercises 
has eot to be jogging. 

Now my attitudinal position 
is not slanted against those 
who partake of this confor- 
mable exertion, but merely an 
edict concerning the falsehood 
of this "fun" activity. 

No matter how you look at 


ANWAR SEDAT, 62, whose 
support was so crucial to the 
signing of the Camp David 
peace agreements, was ass- 
assinated by six soldiers while 
reviewing a parade marking 
Egypt's 1973 war with Israel.

Islamic fundamentalist group 
unhappy with the Egyptian 
President's recent crackdown 
on Islamic clerics.

assassination may have been 
engineered by Libyan Pre- 
sident Moamar Khadafy.

peace," said the assassination

ing lecture class); I never had 
to fight those cobwebs usually 
acquired from sitting in class 
all day before my studies 

seemed possible at night; my 
mind was clearer; I even 
started losing weight! 

Yes, jogging can be fun 
The secret is simple; run for 
fun, and running will be fun' 

it, no matter what view you 
take, jogging is a want of 
originality. This creative 
stagnation is inherent in some 
people. All jogging does is 
channel the excess energy into 
useful socially approved 

When the question is posed: 
' 'Can jogging be fun? " I 
simply retort"NO. 

What thrill could one pos- 
sibly procure from the consis- 
tent slamming of human en- 
trails? How can a nonsensical 
running around in circles or 
skampering around the city be 
termed as exercise? 
Not only is the ritual of 


running redundant, but it is 
also tedious. Why couldn't 
this energetic indulgence be 
directed towards a more artful 
sport? One sport that comes to 
mind is tennis. This requires 
great skill and deftness. These 
traits are rarely manifested in 
running. Another athletic joy 
is that of golfing. This is a 
sport of keen sense and direct 

Please, make yourselves 
cognizant of these facts and 
understand that when dealing 
with logical realism-there is 
no room for jogging. 

Besides, jogging just isn't

Tradgedy often brings with 
it a revelation of God. How it 
is received depends upon the 
character of the individual. 
For those who oppose God, it 
is a revelation of His justice. 
Pharoah exemplifies this. But 
for those who serve God, the 
tragedy, though painful and 
trying, will show the love and 
caring side of God. Job, Jacob 
and a host of other Bible 
characters fall in this 
category. So does the life of H. 
G. Spafford. 

New York, 1873. The "S.S. 
Ville du Havre", a luxurious 
French liner, set sail for 
France. Among the passen- 
gers on board were Mrs 
Spafford and her four child- 
ren. Remaining on shore, M: 
Spafford was unable to ai 
company his family because i

commitments in Chicago, a 
city recently destroyed by the

Great Fire. Soon, he had told 
them, he would join them in 

At two o'clock on the morn- 
ing of November 22, 1873, 
when the liner was several 
days from port, she was struck 
by a British iron sailing ship, 
the "Lochearn". Within two 
hours the "Ville du Havre" 
had sunk to the ocean floor 
with the loss of some 226 lives. 
Among those were the Spaf- 
ford children. Nine days later 
Spafford received a cable from 
his wife with these words: 
"Saved alone." It was the 
second time tragedy had 
befallen him. First, he had lost 
his possessions in the Great 
Chicago Fire. Now his child- 
ren had been snatched away 
by the sea. 

The next month Spafford 
boarded a ship for France to 
be with his wife. One evening

you give the Army a year as a doctor for every

a minimum obligation of three years' service.

Dear Skeptical Reader: 

Thank you for your concern 
as to the validity of the 
questions used in the Accent's 
"Alternatives. " 

Because of the newness of 
'Alternatives" and lack of 
response from the students at 
the beginning of the year, 
some of the questions were 
written by the editors. 
Recently, however, most 
questions have been sent in 
through the Accent mailboxes. 
Remember, if you have any 
problems or questions on any

veith you. 

Thanks a lot.

and walk comfortably to class. 
But then between classes, I 
notice a gradual yet percep-

What styles could keep me

Focus on females 

The life of a woman is a fascinating study. From the very 
dawn of history she has filled mankind with admiration, joy and 
children. She has also added to his perplexities. She follows a 
complicated pattern that is beyond the understanding of any 
mere male. One might add that her constant change in attitude 
is usually a mystery to her friends and even to herself 

Southern Accent has, in recent weeks, become i 
board for those who have definite, and not so definit 

Accent, in an attempt to clear the air of controversy, now 
publishes a categorical study result on Homo Sapien Femanas. 


The female race has been pursued by the opposing species to 
a long time-since the cave man. Their mental and actual 
reaction to varying degrees of attention are here classified.

celibate. Also comes in assorted sizes, shapes and colors. Will 
do anything, within reason, and sometimes out of it, to snare l 

HARD-TO-GET. Usually much sought after by specimencol- j

into the depths of despair. Sought after because of her gw 
beauty she stays tantilizingly out of reach-but evenwa", 
'accidentally' slips into the arras of the persistant.

Southern cynic 

bv Steve Dickerhoff ^ 

The first major social event 
of the year has come and 
:, and I am glad to say that 
s asked to it. I had such a 
good time that I've decided to 
a brief summary of the 

o'^ht- ^ , ... 

My date and I were ndmg 
aown with a friend of mine 
(who we shall call Tom) and 
his date. 

Tom and I went to pick up 
the girls about 4:30. The 
pinning ceremony lasted til 5. 
So, I like to take my time and 
good job. I'll have to 
admit that this was one of the 
better pinning jobs I've 
done... This giri lived. 

From the dorm, we made a 
quick stop at the Erlanger 
emergency room for a pint of 
blood just in case my date's 
wound would happen to open 
again, and we were off. 

Tom and I had already 

decided that we weren't going 
to leave the giris out of the 
conversation, so we talked 
about something of mutual 
interest. The girls didn't know 
any football scores, so they 
didn't talk much, but we had 
given them the chance. 

After we had caught up on 
all the scores, we turned to 
more important things. Who 
was going to drive back that 
night? As of the Cartersville 
exit, I had counted 53 VW's, 
and Tom only 37, so, I guess 
Tom would have the honor. 

We had a little scare on the 
way. At about Calhoun, Tom's 
date noticed that she had 
forgotten the tickets. Well, we 
didn't worry about it because 
we figured all the other girls 
would forget theirs too. (And 
the number's still 4694.) 

I'm still suffering side 

effects from that road into 
Arrowhead. Man, if it hadn't 
been for the Dramamine, my 
head would still be hanging 
out the window. 

Arrowhead is really a nice 
place. It was so nice in fact 
that I decided to keep several 
moraentoes of my visit. The 
forks and spoons are coming 
in really handy around the 
room, and the table cteth 
would have too, but as I was 
folding it up, this lady came 
and took it away from me. 
There were plenty more; I 
didn't see why she took mine. 

I couldn't believe my eyes 
when I went through line. 
There, with a room full of 
Adventists, was a crock of 
blue cheese dressing. I men- 
tioned this to Tom as we went 
back for thirds on salad. 

"We are going to have to 

* 'If principle is 
good for 
anything, it is 
worth living 
up to. 

bring this up to Dr. Knittel," 

Tom agreed as he put more 

blue cheese on his salad. 

I was kind of disappointed 

the only thing funny about the 

The drive home was like the 
one down. We tuned into a 
m the movie. 1 never did see certain FM radio station 
Don Knotts. I guess he played (WSMC, of course) and fol- 
some minor role. The title was lowed it home.

Along with the i 
this year's student activities 
comes a change in the format 
of several chapel programs. In 
order to maintain the cuhural 
programming without conflict- 
ing with Saturday night pro- 
grams, several events, vi-hich 
have appeared in the past on 
the schedule for Saturday 
night's Artist Adventure Se- 
ries, are listed this year as 
chapel programs. 

Thursday, October 8. fea- 
tured Dr. Robert Sage and Dr. 
Bruce Ashton as a classical 

piano duo. Among the num- 
bers performed were Vocalsie, 
by Rachmaninoff; Jupilar, by 
Hoist; and an unique arrange- 
ment of the Star-Spangled 
Banner, arranged by perfor- 
mer Dr. Bruce Ashton. 

Commenting on the new 
arrangement of the Cultural 
Fine Arts series Dr. Sage 
says, "If the students come 
and listen, even if it is only to 
get their two points, they 
might find themselves enjoy- 
ing it. The door has then been 
opened to further classical 


The second cultural chapel 
to be featured at SMC will be

After having Mrs. Robertson

Robertson gave his wife a kiss. 
One obersver wryly noted the

The advent of the snack bar

feels will be good for social

for the Student Center include 
the addition of various games 
and its staying open until 
midnight on Saturdays. 

Also, the gymnasium will 
remain open to students wish-

Talge Hall recreation room 
will also be available for club 
functions with prior approval. 

Schlisner is trying to get 
away from the "big event" 
type of function which he feels 
do not interest all students 
and leaves them with little or 
no alternative for weekend 


The smaller and more fre-

campus to such things as 
waterslides. ice skating, etc.. 
are being very well attended. 
Also, the nights of pizza and a

popular and are another indi- 
cation of the divergent options 
open to students. 

Many of the cultural and

getting bacfc to basics 

How often have you been with a group of coeds when the 
subject of marriage managed a brief appearance? Did you 
noHce all noses turning up, all lips turning down and all ears 
turning off--or are you naturally inattentive? 

Marriage as an institution, possibility or necessity has 
become much maligned in traditional collegiate society. It either 
carries*onnotations of an eager-and-waitiog, a "hard-up," a 
home-ec or theology student. For all other forms of hfe on 
campus, marriage seems to be the most used and abused 
arrangement available, and they avoid it, seemingly, like 
nuclear radiation. 

I theoretically disagree. Marriage is God's ideal for attaining 
the joys of a relationship between two people. And indeed, real 
joy comes only with such real union as can be found in 
marriage--with a unique and abiding relationship. 

Further. I suggest that those of us who openly denounce 
marriage in our own future are either too lazy or immature to 
accept the responsibilities involved, too insecure to open our 
hearts (honestly and deeply interacting about our inner 
thoughts and feelings) sufficiently to another person to allow 
him/her the safe privilege of opening his/her heart to ours, just 
plain scared we don't have the ability to consistently satisfy a 
member of the opposite sex from day to day, or we're afraid we 
won't get married because of lack of interest. (TTiese people 
wear a little sign around that says: I'm not available due to 
everyone's choice but mine.) 

Four misconceptions about marriage exist that can best be 
expressed by our emminent collegian, Homree Hortense. 

"But I'm a swinging bachelor, and marriage would cramp my 
style." Actually, for couples with strong religious beliefs, 
statistics indicate that they enjoy, on the average, making love 
three times a week throughout life. The average participation of 
the swinging single remains far below that reality, despite the 

hvpe of certain magazine editors to the contrary. 
'^"Marriage would take away all my romance: you ^ow the 
pursuit and capture." In reality, marriage provides the ideal 
opportunity for wooing and continued courtship; except in 
matJiage. the pursuit can be more-often-than-not successful. 
Almost any marriage counselor would agree that continuing the 
"little attentions" and "wining and dinmg' are essenttals for a 
successful marriage. 

"Lite, all the variety I have now would be gone I m 
remarkably well-rounded, and I need to be shared by all. In 
fact each individual is endlessly variable. Personality theonsts 
indicate that it usually takes most of a lifetime for us to become 
thoroughly acquainted with ourselves. Just think of the eternal 
possibilities when you add another person's mmd to your 
understanding. And if things get dull, blame your own 
imagination and creativity, not marriage. 

"I just get tired of all the hassles." In this case, Homree 
reveals his lack of maturity coupled with his extreme 
selfishness, both of which he'll need to change anyway. 
Happiness equals personal fulfillment, success, actualization, 
growth, expansion and variety. Providing all these and more, 
the continuously unique relationship called marriage remains 
an extremely attractive option for relaxed "homebodies" and 
thrill-seekers alike. 

Finally, although I enjoy the freedom of bachelorhood, I'd 
much rather have the privileges of marital union. 

"If men are SO 
wicked with 
religion, what 
would they be 
without it?"'

Dear Editor: 

What could possibly be the 
reason behind the full-page ad 
promoting the Army in the 
October 8 issue? Was there a 
financial incentive or just the 
desire to- 'do our belt-tight- 
ening country a good turn? 

Although we are proud of 
our country and want to 
support it, do we realize that 
enlisting in the armed forces 
could possible remove us from 
under Uncle Sam's protecting 
umbrella o" " ' 


Surely ther ^_ 

in which to take up space. But 
maybe this is better than 
bloodying the page with an- 
other episode of the scuffle 
between the sexes that Steve 
D. and his Thatcher opponents 
continue from week to week. 
Maybe both parties are "just 

An event witnessed in front 
ot the Thatcher annex makes 
nie wonder whether either sex 
knows what role is their 
inherited lot. I watched as a 
gentleman (using the term 
loosely) and his (?) lady (what- 

e other ways 

ever that means) made their 
way to his car. He got into the 
driver's side and she was left 
standing next to the passenger 

After an obvious hesitation, 
she tried the door and found it 
locked. Then he got out and 
went around the car, unlocked 
the door, checked the handle 
to make sure it was unlocked, 
and got back into the car- 
leaving her standing outside. 

She then verbally demonstrat- 
ed her disapproval and opened 
the door herself. 

Maybe most women dont 
like to be treated like ladies 
anymore. I wouldn't know. 

What has happened to the 
days when a prince was a man 
who treated a woman like a 
princess, and a princess was 
woman who treated men m

October 15, 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 


Dear Editor: 

A couple of weeks have 
passed now since the Student 
Association elections. I feel 
: impressed to write this letter; 
not because of the results, but 
because of the manner in 
which they were held and the 
publicity they received. 

The Student Association 
seems to be suffering from an 
inability to get news of its 
events to the student body, 
village students in particular. 
It is hoped that when the new 
mailboxes for village students 
are ' completed (soon?) that 
this will remedy the problem 
My particular complaint in- 
I volves the handling of the 
I run-off elections for the village 
Isenators. Since the S.A. 
Bofficers decided not to take the 
r (out of eight) candidates 
iwho received the most votes, 
jbut to have a run-off election 
^between the top six names, I 
forced into a run-off 
isituation instead of an elected 

IS told that there would 
Lin-offbut I was not told 

when. In fact, when I inquired 
again about the run-off from 
someone in the S.A. office, I 
was told not to worry because I 
would be informed when the 
run-off would be held. 

This conversation took place 
the day after the run-off, I 
found out later, so it seems 
that even some in the S.A. 
office were not aware of when 
the run-off would be held. 

In talking with many stu- 
dents, both dorm and village, 
the concensus has been that 
the elections were poorly pub- 
licized. Some of the viUage 
students told me that they 
could not find where they were 
supposed to vote. I also did 
not see any voting tables and, 
in fact, went to the S.A. office 
to vote so I would be able to 
cast my ballot. 

I'm sure that any votes that 
I did receive on the run-off 
were purely by accident 
because I have talked to 
almost every village student 
I know and no one knew of the 
run-off election (when & 
where) and, of course, 1 
myself did not get to vote. 

Is this the normal procedure 
in years past? Is there not a 
constitution for the S.A. which 
spells out what must be done 

in the case of run-off elec- 
tions-when run-offs are 
necessary and the procedure 
to be followed in organizing 
and holding elections? 

from which I transferred and 
was a student representative, 
this was the case. I know since 
I was on the committee which 
drafted new provisions 
(amendments) to the constitu- 

If the S.A. does not have a 
constitution to guide and de- 
fine its activities, perhaps they 
should consider framing one. 
If one exists, perhaps they 
should see what it says about 
conducting elections or amend 
it so that situations such as 
occurred in the past election 
are not repeated. 

Stephen R. Morris 
P.S. It's true, I'm finicky. 

Dear Editor: 

Whatever happened to the 
"Hands of God?" 

The November 2, 1978 
Southern Accent published an 
article claiming that SMC was 
to acquire a sculpture by 
Actor M. Contreras called 
"Hands of God." 

It was made in Mexico out 
of cast silver and gold bronze. 
It stood 23 feet tall, 10 feet 
wide at its widest point, and 
weighed eight and one-half 
tons. The sculpture had a pair 
of hands (representing God's 
hands) folded over a heart 
with a drop of blood. It was to 
represent that man is still in 
God's hands. 

The sculpture was supposed 
to get here in two or three 
months. That was three years 

Is it in storage? Will it go in 
front of the Fine Arts com- 
plex? When will the Fine Arts 
complex be finished? I can't 
wait until the sculpture is

Sadat: 1918-1981 


I Dear Editor: 

Having read two issues of 
Ithe Accent after Mr. Dicker- 
fhoffs September 24th issue, I 
nder the impression that 
s college students can't 
Itake an article, read it, and 
I understand that it was written 
f for a joke. 

Obviously, Steve's articles 

hat are published in the 

\cceni aren't necessarily true. 

iTake. for example, his article 

|written October 8. 

I thought he broadened the 
I whole idea of the article very 
I well, from counting VW's to 
[stealing the silverware. (Oh! 
' the way Steve, I bet you 
I didn't get an ashtray.) Of 
I course, stopping at Erlanger 
|to get blood couldn't have 
|been for real. 

It seems to me that since his 
I article got so much rebuttal, 
Isome people obviously en- 
Ijoyed the article enough to 
I return letters. However, the 
I letters being returned are 
I getting somewhat out of hand. 
in the past two issues of the 
\ Accent 1 have read more 
Ij^epties blaspheming Dicker- 
I notl-s article than one person 
I could imagine. 

To this group of people who 
^ave done this, I say that they

I ook at how well written they 
I are and realize that he is doing

To John Austin, (whoever 
you are and who seems to 
have started a personal battle 
with Professor Strayer) you 
are probably one who can read 
an article and face the fact that 
it is a joke. Although I must 
question you. "Should you

Personally, I have enjoyed 
e,very article he has written. I 
find them very amusing and 
you sometimes need some 
type of amusement in "excit- 
ing" Collegedale. 

Ladies, you must face the

weaker sex. I do also realize 
that you were upset by some 
statements he made, but get 
real. Do you really think he 
pats a girl on the head and 
expects her to love himi 

Don't get me wrong about 
this because I am not fully 
sticking up for Steve since half 
my wardrobe does consist of 
IZOD'sM! I do feel, however, 

Dear Editor: 

In reference to Monday 
night's flagball game between 
Steve Nogel's team and Reno 
Thompson's team, I would like 
to ask those who were there 
watching and those who were 
playing to forgive me for my 
intemperate behavior and my 
inexcusable temper tantrum. I 
was frustrated, and I vented 
my friistrations in a very loud 

that this has gone too far. 

It seems as though some 
personal battles between 
Thatcher hall residents, facul- 
ty, and even a village resident 
have begun, and it all stems 
from one article. Have we 
heard anything else from Mr. 
Dickerhoff about this article? 

By the way, for those invol- 
ved in the hanging of the 
dummy on the flagpole, if it 
really bothered you so much, 
why didn't you just gang up on 
Steve and hang him? Did 
hanging a dummy really ac- 
complish anything? 

I think it's time we drop the 
issue and face the facts: (1) 
God intended for women to be 
the weaker sex, and (2) 
Steve's articles are written for 
a good laugh. 

So why don't we drop the 
subject and discuss Green 
Bay's exciting 27-14 victory 
over the Giants for the benefit 
of Coach Jaecks. Or maybe we 
can discuss the heroics of 
Reggie Fitzgerald, I mean 
Reggie Jackson.

and unsportsmanlike manner 
toward the referee. 

At the time. I felt I was 
justified in my anger; but after 
reflecting on it, I can see that I 
was quite mistaken.

logize for my actions. I ask 
your forgiveness also.

"He lived for peace and he 
was martyred for his prin- 

Perhaps the epitaph Anwar 
Sadat chose for himself was 
more fitting than even he 
realized. It was Sadat, ins- 
pired by his dream of praying 
in Jerusalem's Al Aksa Mos- 
que, who made the initial 
grand gesture of going to 
Jerusalem to visit his arch- 
enemy. Menachem Begin. 

It was he who took the first 
bold step on the road towards 
Camp David and the historic 
Egyptian-Israeli peace 

accords, thus isolating himself 
from the Arab world. 

It was also Sadat, however, 
who offered to help the Nazi 
General Rommel defeat the 
British in World War II, who 
conspired to assassinate a pro- 
British Egyptian official in 
1946, and who materminded a 
surprise attack on Israel in 
1973 that precipitated the 
gravest crisis in U.S. -Soviet 
relations since 1962. 

Sadat was born on Decem- 
ber 25. 1918, in the Nile delta 
village of Mh Abul Kom 
where he lived until his family 
moved to Cairo when he was 

He enrolled in the Royal 
Military Academy at 18 and, 
upon graduation, was assign- 
ed to the Signal Corps. While 
there he met the late Egyptian 
President Gama! Nasser. 

After spending time in pri- 


son for his efforts in the 
Rommel plot and the assassi- 
nation, Sadat re-enlisted in 
the Army and helped Nasser 
overthrow King Farouk's pro- 
British regime. 

He gradually worked his 
way up the political ladder 
until, by the time of Nasser's 
death in 1970, he was the only 
man in position to take power. 

Thought by most observers 
to be a yes-man incapable of 
filling Nasser's shoes, he sur- 
prised everyone by jailing 
senior military commanders 
suspected of plotting a coup 
against him and by expelling 
eighteen thousand Soviet 

In 1973, he plotted the Yom 
Kippur War and in 1978, he 
won the Nobel Peace Prize for 
his role in the Camp David 
peace accords. 

Recently, he jailed over 
fifteen hundred Islamic and 
Coptic Christian c 
an effort to quell the i 
strife that had plagued Egypt. 
The leader of his assassins 
was the brother of one of these 

It seems that throughout 
history many who have sought 
peace, including Jesus Christ, 
have met violent ends. 

Whatever else may be said 
about Anwar Sadat, it is 
certainly true that in a world 
bent on destroying itself, he 
stood for peace. Perhaps that 
was his undoing.

Movie theatres: is 


TV an improvement? 




by Reed Christ man 
It's rather obvious, isn't it? 
Television has to be an im- 
provement over the "flick." 
Has anyone ever heard of an 
"X" rated T.V. show? Just 
look at the new season's 
of movies: "Blazing Saddles,"

also involved in partially sub- 
sidizing various student clubs 
on campus; making it possible 
for them to embark on various 
excursions. Schlisner feels 
this type of partial subsidy not 
only helps the S.A. budget to 
go further, but also allows 
more students to benefit from 
his office's efforts. 

Despite the budget squeeze 
this year, very little has been 
cut from the roster of activities 
planned. The only definite 
event being dropped is a fall 
and spring excursion to Camp 
Kalaqua for Orlando nursing 
students. The lack of interest 
and attendance at such past 
outings, rather than a lack of 
funds, warranted its elimina- 

Schlisner hopes to salvage 
up to SI ,500 from the cancella- 
tion and put it towards some 
other activity. 

Though the budget is being 
tightened and twisted to wring 
out every bit of waste, the 
S.A. plans, though stream- 
lined, basically have not 

■■10." "Every which way. but 
loose." "Slap Shot," and 
"Grease." Each and every 
one will be edited for tele- 
vision, right? The nudity, foul 
language and obscene ges- 
tures will be cleaned up; 
unless of course you happen to 
be watching them on H.B.O. 
or Showtime. 

And, so what if it's true- 
daytime and nighttime 
"soaps" are filled with vio- 
lence, sex, and psychological 
intrigue. Il is certainly not as 

Though not the only event 
on tap for any given weekend, 
the Artist Adventure Series, 
which is largely S.A. spon- 
sored, has been a tremendous 
success so far this year. 

In regard to its attendance 
to date. Schlisner commented 
that "it's as good a start as 
there's been" since he's been 
with the college. Programs 
thought to be of greatest 
interest to students were 
chosen for the series. 

A student hired to handle 
the advertising and overall 
public relations for the office 
was also cited as a possible 
reason for the success of the 

In reference to his philo- 
sophy of providing several 
options to students for week- 
end activity and the actual 
plans for the year Schlisner 
remarked, "I think we're 
covering the bases pretty 
well." He also welcomes any 
positive or negative feedback 
as well as any suggestions for 
additional programs or acti- 

explicit as what is found in the 
theater, and that's an impro- 
vement, right? Watch "Fla- 
mingo Road" or "Dynasty" in 
the evening, or "As the 
Stomach Turns" in the after- 
noon; you'll see. 

Besides, television teaches 
you reality and is a help in 
daily living. "Three's Com- 
pany" teaches you to "love 
thy neighbor." "Barney Mil- 
ler" teaches respect for the 
police. "Jeffersons" teaches 
that hard working, intelligent 

minorities can make it to the 
big time. And "Facts of Life" 
teaches you the facts nt life. 

Well, anyway, T.V. is an 
improvement over the movie 
theater after all. You don't 
have to spend cold hard cash 
to watch it. You don't have to 
get up and walk out of the 
theater. And best of all you 
can change channels or even 
turn the "thing" off-without 
getting off the sofa if you have 

a remote control. 

Actually. I believe we ought 
to wa'ch more T.V. and go to 
more movies. We need to 
expand our entertainment 
horizons. We can add our 
television watching and thea- 
ter attendance to our caving, 
backgammon, football, moun- 
tain climbing, skiing, 
Asteriods, Pac Man and really 
becomes "Lovers of Pleasure 
more than Lovers of God," 
and feed the hungry and help 
the poor. Righ-h-t-t! !1 



by Phil Qllben 

Is T.V. an improvement 
over the cinema? How can 
T.V. be an improvement over 
the cinema when the same 
movies shown in the theater 
are invariably shown on T.V.? 

Theaters are accused of 
contributing to the erosion of 
society's morality, and reli- 
gious and social convictions 

corrupt, violent, and 
„-.:ually explicit movies; and 
therefore, overlooking any re- 
deeming aspects, are labeled 
forbidden fruit. The Romans 
phrased this type of reasoning 
post hoc ergo propter hoc. 

I have watched the same 
movies, and have observed 
staunch anti-cinema activists 
enthusiastically affix them- 
selves to the very movies on 
T.V. that were taboo while in 
the cinema. 

Ir lieu of absolute Christian 
ethics, to consider T.V. as a 
better choice than the theater 
is like a Laotian refugee 
calling a Cuban refugee an 
illegal alien.

over theater? If you think it is.

"Book Sale at Eastgate!" 
The words thrilled me as I 
heard them. Quickly, I began 
forming plans to go. I am a 
book lover and collector, so 
any time there is a chance to 
get my hands on a "bargain" 
book. I'll do it. 

On Friday there were only a 
few tables full of cheap 
thrillers like Smuggled Love. 
and The New Nurse. Old 
Reader's Digests and lots of 
worthless textbooks finished 
ihe sale coilection list. 
Nothing looked good-even for 
only a quarter. The sale would 
last through the weekend, so I 
would come back. 

On Saturday night I re- 
lumed once again in hopes of 
striking it rich and finding 
books that others had some- 
how overlooked. 

This time seven tables were 
laden with books of every 
description. Most of them 
didn't look appealing until one 
of the ladies in charge said, 
■'We've got to get rid of them. 

so it's all you can carry for 

With that pronouncement, 
the buying frenzy began. Any 
book that looked like it could 
possibly be good or interesting 
was thrown in my box. Why 
not? Each one added would 
only lower the amount per 

Ten minutes and forty plus 
books later, I left Eastgate 
carrying the cardboard box as 
if it were a treasure chest. 

Later, while looking through 
my recent purchases, I began 
to think about those books on 
the tables. At one time they 
were new and selling for five 
or ten dollars apiece. Later, 
due to an overstock, damage 
or lack of interest, they were 
placed on a table marked "All 
Books Half Off!" Now they 
had been ditched in a huge 
sale and were going for 
pennies each. 

What brought the change in 
value? Age, condition and 
pertinence of information 


were factors, to be sure. 

Though good books were 
hard to find, analogies are not. 
I see them on at least three 

First, is the material level. 
Cars, cameras. TV's all lose 
value as they are used and 
age. With the passage of time, 
almost all material things lose 
value. Is it any wonder that 
Jesus tells us not to lay up our 
treasure on earth? 

This depreciation also exists 
on a personal level. How many 
times have we seen the value 
of a person lowered because 
they have been used or 
damaged by others? It is so 
easy to use someone to help 
you climb a social, scholastic 
or similar type of ladder and 
once there discard them be- 
cause they are of no further 
benefit to you. All around us 
are people who carry the label 

The third level is one that 
affects all of us, for we all have 

in a sense been used or 
depreciated. This is the 
spiritual level. 

When man came from the 
hand of God, he was perfect 
and whole. But through sin 
and its deadly consequences 
we have become old, scarred, 
used and worthless. 

All of humanity has been 
labeled by Satan as worthless. 
But God saw us. not as we 

were but as what we could 
become, and sent Jesus to die 
for us. He brought us back, 
not because we were selling 
for cheap, but because He 
loved us and wanted to re- 
make us in His image again. 

Occasionally when I look at 
my library shelves I can't help 
but remember the lesson I 
have learned from my "bar- 
gain books."

Bible facts series 

' The Printings of the Bible ' ' 

Johannes Gutenburg produced the first printed Bible in 1455. 

The first complete English Bible was by Wycliffe and his 
followers and appeared in England in 1382. 

The first Bible was printed in America in 1663. It was a 
translation into the Mohican language by John Eliot. 

The smallest Bible has been reproduced on a two-inch square. 

Into the production of the RSV, went 2.000 gallons of ink, 1.000 
tons of paper. 10 tons of type material. 71 miles of 40-inch 
cloth, and enough 23.karat gold leaf, for stamping the name 
to pave a road 24 feet wide and a mile long. The finished 
books, stacked in one pile, would reach higher than 100 
Empire State Buildings. The first printing alone cost $6 

Some mistakes made in printing the Bible were: 

1631 An edition of the King James Bible read: "Thou shall 

commit adultery." 

1551 A Bible was printed in which Psalms 91:5 read: "Thou 

shall not be afraid of any bugs by night. 

1702 A version that spoke of David as being pe^ecuted by 

"printers" instead of "princes" m Psalms 119:161.

Pro forecast

The first round of the Base-

now four teams begin battling 
for the two berths in the World 
Series. So far my baseball 
predictions (7-1) have, for- 
tunately, been much more 
accurate than ray football pre- 

In the American League, 
OaUand and New York should 
give us an exciting and close 
series. Because of Billy Martin 
and their superb pitching, I'm 
going with OAKLAND. 

In the National League. 
Montreal and Los Angeles 
should be a classic matchup. 
This is really a tough one. 
Both are loaded with talent 
and have good managers. 
MONTREAL may be a little 
hungrier for a championship, 
so I'm going to pick them. 

I'm not sure anyone is 
having much success at figur- 
ing out the N.F.L. this year. 

Who would have even figured 
San Francisco beating Dallas 
45 to 14? How about Oakland 
(or anybody) going 3 complete 
games without scoring a sin- 
gle point? 

I should point out. however, 
that for 3 consecutive weeks 1

Warming up to stay young 

When you begin aging 
(we'll call that approximately 
two or three years after you 
reach puberty) you need to 
start listening a little more 
carefully to what the body is 
telling the mind. Some mes- 
sages that begin coming 
through with more frequency 
relate to fatigue and stiffness. 
This leads our discussion to 
the basic question; Do warm- 
ups really do any good? 

When you were 5 or 6 years 
old all systems were go. You 
could quick-start and stop in 
your activities with little or no 
side effects. During the mid- 
dle-age years, (we'll call that 
approximately IS to 55 years 
of age) the body rebels a litlle 
at the idea of jackrabbit living. 
As time passes an increasingly 
longer warm-up time is 
needed to lubricate the joints, 
and warm muscles and blood. 
This does not have to be a 
laborious ritual, but it should 
be a ritual. If you are a jogger, 
or worse, you should walk a 

ne-fourth mile to 
warm-up. While doing this, 
your velocity should increase 
until those blades of grass are 
just flying on by. At this point 
the joints and blood tempera- 
ture will be ready for you to 
act like a young hot-blood 

Also important to consider 
in warm-ups is the length of 
the muscles used. Muscles 
will be slower to farigue if they 
can relax, and they relax 
better if they are longer. The 
best lengthening (or stretch- 
ing) technique is to hold the 
stretch position two different 
times for at least 6 seconds. 

This stretching routine 
should include the muscle 
group on the front of the lower 
leg which causes shin splints if 
not warmed up properly. This 
is done by pointing the toes 
back and down and pressing. 
You should also stretch by 
pole leaning "leaning on a pole 
from several feet away while 
keeping your feet flat on the 

ground. Do this to avoid sore 
calves and Achilles tendons. 
Lastly, stretch the hamstrings 
by bending at the waist with 
the knees straight. This wil 
help you maintain a normal 
stride and hip angle. 

Warming down slowly is im- 
portant for a healthy exercise 
period. The quick stop from 
60-to-O after heavy exercise 
means the other two pumps- 
which are the muscle pump 
and the vessel purop--jusi 
stop. Moving the blood here 
and there is aU left up to the 
ole ticker. 

In addition, the muscles 
doing reperitive contracting 
will shorten as a result of ne 
work they have done. So, tn 
same stretching bout done 
prior to starting the exercise 
needed after the exercise. 

With judicious planning, 
most of us should have a 
lifetime (we'll call that appros^ 
imately expirarion minus i>^ 
weeks) of enjoyable roovmg-

Southern cynic 

by Laurie Loga J 

Since I have been at SMC, I 
have learned quite a few 
things both in and put of 
classes. One of these is that 
people generally trust the 
written word far more than the 
spoken. More credibility is 
given to newspapers, maga- 
zines and journals than to all 
the Dan Rathers and Walter 
Cronkites in the nation. 

I think that's great. I was 
especially delighted when I 
came to Coliegedale and 
learned of the many different 
papers being circulated 
throughout this community. 
One, in particular, fascinated 
me because it always seemed 
to have a jump on all the 
information. Certain issues 
were discussed in this paper 
that no one else seemed to 
know about. 

1 first got news of this 
extraordinary publication 

when I was coming back from 
chapel one day. A lady, her 
arms loaded with papers, was 

As people went by, she would 
thrust a copy under their nose, 
making it necessary for the 
startled victim to either take 
the paper or wear it. The 
majority opted for the former. 
1 had recently adopted five 

or six cats, so when I passed 
the enthusiastic circulation 
manager, I took about twenty 
copies. That lady must be fond 
of cats, as she certainly looked 

"Make sure they all have 
their own copy," shewhispered 
loudly as 1 passed. I smiled 
happily. "Thanks, Til do 
that." Imagine, a total 
stranger being worried about 
my cats. 

I didn't think about the 
papers until later when I was 
in class. I'd forgotten to bring 
something to read so I casually 
glanced at one of them. 

Soon I was engrossed in the 
front page. There was a 
feature article about some 
guys who, for a joke, tried to 
force Dr. Knittel to resign. 
"The humor is outstanding," 
I thought, laughing to myself. 
I did feel a bit sorry for our 
president, though, having to 
waste his time on a few 
prepubescent pranksters and 
prejudiced punks. Neverthe- 
less, it made a terrific story. 

Next 1 turned to the middle 
of the paper. It was even 
better. Eagerly I devoured the 
print, discovering to my 
amazement and utter horror 
that eight of the college tea-

(CH)- While Burt Reynolds is 
out looking for someone to 
have his baby, a lot of college 
students are out looking for 
someone to pay their tele- 
phone bills, after falling for a 
phony credit card hoax. 

According to the latest ver-

actor Reynolds allegedly won 
a lawsuit from Bell Telephone 
Co. and was awarded one 
month's free telephone use. 
He then supposedly released 
his credit card number for 
public use. 

If it all sounds too good to 
be tme, it is. Reynolds has 
nothing to do with the two 
credit card numbers being 
circulated at campuses like the 
University of Texas, Notre

believed the rumor and placed 
lengthy - and expensive - long

He also feels that it is a

Student senate convenes 

The Student Senate of 
Southern Missionary College 
met for its first meeting of the 
1981-82 school year on Octo- 
ber 14. Though mostly an 
orientation and review of par- 
liamentary procedure. Roger 
Burke, SA president says. "It 
looks like it's going to be a 
successful year." 

Part of the agenda included 
the revelation that though the 
SA budget had been cut some 
$2,000. approximately the 
same amount would be saved 
by the annual Adventist Inter- 
Collegiate Association conven- 
tion's being held at nearby 
Oakwood College instead of at 
Pacific Union College as was 

originally planned. About ten 
representatives from SMC at- 
tend the convention each year. 

Also discussed was the 
problem students have en- 
countered with last year's 
edition of the Southern Mem- 
ories. Some copies were 
poorly bound and came apart 
quite prematurely. Those stu- 
dents who own such books are 
advised that a few replace- 
ments are available at the SA 

A major problem targeted 
on for this year's senate seems 
to be the phone system. 
President Burke admitted that 
the poor phone service in 
Collegedale, specifically in the 
dormitories, is a pet project of 
his, and several senators ex- 
pressed an interest in trying to 
improve it as well. 

If students are curious as to 
what kind of weight the Stu- 
dent Senate pulls, Burke says 
that the SA has good commu- 
nication with SMC faculty and

life on this campus, we can act

Feeling hungry, you head for the "good ole snack bar" to

the rooms. Sure enough-tick, tick, tick.

Dear Editor: 

Having noticed a problem 
which seems to appear more 
than once. I wish to bring to 
your attention facts that may 
be useful to our schooL 

Our campus, being an SDA 
educational facility, wishes to 
maintain and represent the 
church's Christian standards. 

Believing that a Christain is 
to be neat, cleaned and pro- 
perly dressed, the staff have 
placed a code in our cafeteria 
under which blue jeans are 
prohibited. Yet what is our 
goal? Do we as Christians not 
like the color blue? 

I present to you that the 
problem lies not in blue jean 
material alone, but in other 
material types as well. 

Holes, dirt and stains do not 
find themselves only on blue 

It's not true that cords, 
white jeans or khakis have the 
property of "once nice, always 
nice." A hole in cords is as 
ratty as a hole in jeans. 

I wear my jeans dry cleaned 
and pressed as do many other 
SMC students, and we- 
though neat, clean and pro- 
perly dressed—are not allowed 

the privilege of entering the 
main dining area. 

We don't ask that all blue 
jeans be permitted, but tiial 
those that contain no holes, 
stains, or patches may be 
worn to the dining area under 
the discretion of the hostess. 

We are also concerned thai 
pants having stains and holes 
are being permitted into the 
dining area due to the fact that 
they're not blue jeans. 

Let's give equal rights to 
blue jeans that are neat, clean 
and proper. Blue jeans can be 
beautiful, too.

Dear Editor: 

I'd just like to reply to the 
editorial in the October 15 
issue of Southern Accent on 
marriage. 1 agree; somehow, 
even in our Christian subcul- 
ture, we aren't getting the 
whole truth on subjects con- 
cerning dating and marriage. 

1 believe that marriage, 
under God's blessing, is one 
of the most beautiful relation- 
ships in the world, very 
unique and very fulfilling. 

But on the other hand, 
many times I get the impres- 
sion that if one (especially a 
Christian man or woman> de- 
cides to stay single, many of 
the brethren look down on 
him/her as being somewhat 
strange, or perhaps too im- 
mature or selfish {according to 
other people-not necessarily 
the Lord) to marry. 

People may even try to 
make these people feel as 
though something is wrong 
with them and that they better 
hurry up and get a mate. I 
find that to be tragic! 

Yes, single people, espe- 
cially if they are Christians. 

can lead rewarding lives. Just 
look at women and men like 
Paul. Corrie Ten Boom, Ann 
Keimel and Bill Gothard. 

These people are (or were) 
fulfilled in their serving minis- 
tries for Christ. They found 
that "special Someone"-- 
Jesus of Nazareth! "You are 
complete in Him! Col. 2:10. 

The Apostle Paul speaks of 
both marriage and singleness 
being gifts. They both can be 
used to serve Christ. 

Please, let us not judge our 
single brethren who, for 

Christ's sake, decide not to 
marry because they want to 
serve Jesus in a special way. 

Please, don't get me wrong. 
I'm not knocking marriage. I 
plan on getting married my- 
self someday and make lifej 
real joy for my hiture wife anfl 


I just wanted to speak out on 

behalf of any singles out there 
who might wish to be under- 
stood. ^. . .

Dear Editor: 

In the October 8 Southern 
Accent there appeared an 
advertisement for the U.S. 
Army. I was shocked. 

From my understanding, 
the official church position on 
serving in the armed forces is 
that we should not enlist

gency, when we may have to 
defend our country, it may be 
necessary for some of our

October 22, 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 



I'm not against serving in 
this country's armed forces. I 
believe strongly in thiscountry 
and for what it stands. We 
should support our country in 
every way possible. 

When there appears a con- 
flict between serving one's 
country and serving one's God 
this is where one must draw 
the line. This conflict would 
surely arise sooner or later for 
any Adventist in the service. 

Sure, the services offer 
excellent opportunities in ed- 
ucation, travel, and benefits. 

but their sole purpose is to 
engage and kill the enemy 
whenever necessary. 

Whether an infantryman, 
artillery man, motor transport 
man. doctor or nurse; in the 
army, you're a member of an 
organization whose sole pur- 
pose for survival is to take 
another's life-directly or in- 

Whatever the reason for 
this advertisement appearing 
in our newspaper, I believe it 
is wrong. 

With Christ's coming so 
close can we truly afford to be 
caught defending our country 
and not our faith? 

Eugene A. Vajna 

Dear Editor: 

Cleanliness and proper hy- 
giene have been commonplace 
in the Adventist health doc- 
trine for many years; however, 
I am seriously concerned just 
how much the school, or more 
accurately, Talge Hall is 
upholding these principles of 
cleanliness and good health. 

What would make me even 
think such a though as this? 
Well, I'll tell you. Just to think 
that this problem exists at a 
private college with some of 
the best caliber people makes 
me sick to the point of 

The problem is roaches. The 
faculty of the dorm have been 
handling this rather poorly for 
my entire stay here. 

It's very discouraging to 
think I can't take a nap during 
my midnight to 8 a.m. shift at 
Talge Hall desk without hav- 
ing a roach crawl across the 
desk looking at me and 
marching off. It is indeed a 
very sick and uneasy problem 
here-one in which the budget 
committee evidently feels isn't 
very imporiant since they 

e have not 

haven't done anything about it 
yet and probably never will. 

Just wait— there's more 

It's not only the front desk 
where the roaches love to 
frolic. Just go to any of the 
rooms in Talge. If you were to 
see you would understand why 
I write this and you'd also 
understand why you were 
headed for the bathroom. It's 
one thing to have them crawl- 
ing on your walls at night, but 
to turn on your lights and see 
one standing on your tooth- 
brush, sitting on ycfur soap, or 
crawling in the bottom of your 
refirigerator is just too much 
for someone with a little 
decency to take. 

I think these are just 
examples because this is 
happening in the neat rooms. 
The faculty can't point an 
accusing finger at the messy 
ones either because they are 
also buying roach traps — but 
to no avail. 

So 1 feel it time for the 
faculty to reevaluate their 
position. The roach problem is 
not only making our college 
kids look like lower class

Ginzberg shares experiences 

by Bill Bolh 

Soviet dissident Alexander 
Ginzburg opened his address 
at SMC's Tuesday chapel 
service by stating that 
although he was * 'a journalist, 
not a lecturer" he has lectured 
at 16) different college 
campuses since 1979 in an 
effort to drive home the extent 
of Soviet human rights viola- 
According to Ginzburg, the 
Soviets exterminated 66 mil- 
lion people between 1917 and 

This was an organized pro- 
gram of terror aimed initially 
at intellectuals and church 
leaders and then, after they 
had been eliminated, directed 
towards peasants because 
they maintained the old pre- 
revolution traditions. This was 
all designed to destroy the 
"historical memory" of the 
Russian people. 

Although Nikita 

Khrushchev revealed some of 
the atrocities commited under 
Joseph Stalin's regime (1924- 
1953), nothing really changed 
under his rule or Leonid 

Ginzburg began to openly 
oppose Soviet policies by edit- 
ing the literary journal 
Sintaxis from 1957 until 1960 
when he was arrested and 
sentenced to two years forced 

Since he was forbidden the 
pursuit of journalism as a 
career after his release, 
Ginzburg had to settle for 
menial jobs such as sewer 
cleaner until 1966 when he 
was arrested again for compil- 
ing a book about a trial of two 
other Soviet dissidents. 

He was then sentenced in 
1967 to five years of strict 
regime prison camp, an 
experience causing ulcers and 
other ailments. 

Upon his release in 1972, 
Ginzburg helped Alexander 
Solzhenitsyn found the 
Russian Social Fund to aid 
other dissidents. 

Then, in 1976. he helped 
start the Moscow Helsinki 
Watch Group, designed to 
monitor Soviet adherence to 
the human rights [ 
the Helsinki Pact. 

He was arrested for this ■ 

1977 and sentenced to 8 vea^ 

in the Soviet Union's harshest 
labor camp. " 

He was released and exiled 
along with four other dis,i' 
dents, in an exchange with ,h, 
u.i. tor two spies in 1979 

ta°Sa '''' '^"'"'' '"""'« 

Ginzburg noted that many 
Russian Adventists were sub 
ject to persecution, includin. 
the head of the Adventist 
church in Russia who died i„ 
prison last year. 

Although Ginzbure 

approves of President 
Reagan's tougher policv to- 
wards the USSR, he 'feels 
Reagan "may have erred" in 
not continuing President 
Carter's outspoken "Human 
Rights" policy. 

According to Ginzberg, it is 
important for all Americans to 
become knowledgable about 
Russian and its history. One 
book he particularly recom- 
mended %vas Hedrick Smith's 
The Kussians (which is in the 
library, by the way!) 

Rock & roll unmasked 

Jim Peters ' and Gentle 
Touch presented "What In the 
Devil's Wrong with Rock Mu- 
sic?" at a special chapel in the 
gymnasium. Presenting both a 
morning and evening session, 
Gentle Touch emphasized a 
comparison between Jesus 
Christ and rock music. 

"It's a matter of black and 
white." Peters said as he 
pointed to the two sound- 
system speakers. "On one 
side we would like lo place the 
rock stars with their drugs, 
sex, rotten music and homo- 
sexuality. On the other side 
we lift up Jesus, pure and 
gentle. The two just don't mix. 

Everett Schlisner, dean of 
students, introduced the St. 
Paul, Minnesota-based 

group's message as "impor- 
tant to the students' eternal 



Peters outlined six ways to 
judge a style of music: 1) the 
people involved-their life- 
style, doctrines and beliefs; 2) 
their music and lyrics; 3) the 
effect on the listener-actions 
of avid followers; 4) the force 
behind the music-good or 
evil? 5) the intentions of the 
musicians-their goals; 6) the 
spiritual consequences--the 
end result. 

After giving a short testi- 
mony concerning Christ's 
place in his life. Peters asser- 
ted. "What I'm going to share 
with you is only from public 
magazines and other sources. 
None of this is based on 
hearsay or on my own opinions 
or conclusions" designed only 
to support our outline. 

Peters then shared several 
slides (i.e. hundreds) por- 
traying rock stars and rock

records which revealed, in the 
language of the rock culture, 
the lifestyles of some musi- 
cians and their purposes with 
their music. 

"You've got to serve some- 
body," Peters, using Dylan's 
album title, concluded. "If 
you're having difficulties re- 
lating to God. perhaps it's 
because He can't bless your 
life due . to some area that 
remains uncommitted and un- 
surrendered. " 

"I don't listen to rod 
music," - commented John 
Durichek. "But some people 
need to be shocked so they will 
see the real side of rock." 

Others enjoyed the seminar 
but questioned its relevance 
for them. The rock music 
seminar opened with two gos- 
pel songs by Gentle Touch 
that one observer wryly noted 
were "similar to some of the 
music they were condem- 
ning," although the selections 
did have religious lyrics. 

"I knew that hard rock was 
bad," agreed Dinah Slawter, 
"but never listen to that kind 
of music anyway. He didn't

"Reach out and touch some-

I Telephone ad. But according 

, many SMC students, get- 

ng the message through in 

Coitegedale's non-Bell phone 

L system is hard to do.

commented Greg Wheeler, 
lophomore accounting major.

"it stinks" was the comment 
t least three students when 
I asked of their opinion of the 

Why is the phone system so 

I overloaded at peak hours? 

I And just what is SMC going to 

do about this problem? First, 

ixplanation of SMC's 

phone system. The college is 

This is really a small phone 
stum in itself with the 
ticart" of the system at the 
■nchboard in Wright Hall. 
a.h of the over 900 phones in 
K dorms and offices starting 
lis ne.xtwork and must go 
irnugh the main switch- 

■ird, even though the SMC 

operator doesn't have to 
answer to complete each call. 

According to Richard 
Reiner, business manager at 
SMC, there are only 42 talking 
paths for the whole system. 
What this means is that at any 
given time, only 42 people can 
be talking to someone else. So 
between say, 9 and 11 p.m., if 
only 42 students called on the 
phone in their rooms or the 
lobbies, the entire phone sys- 
tem would be tied up. 

So why doesn't SMC get 
rid of the system and put in a 

word — money. The basic 
equipment charges on the 
present system are $9,600 a 
month or overSl 15.000 a year. 
If the college rented a new, 
sophisticated system with 
unlimited talking paths, the 
cost would rise to over 
$151,000 a year. 

Then let's buy a phone 
like McKee's some 
tid. Forget it. Accord- 
recent figures, a new 
such as McKee's 
cost in the neighbor- 
hood of $750,000. 

While the new system 
would pay for itself in about 
seven years, the opportunity 
costs would be high. In other 
words, the 3/4 of a million 
dollars could be better spent 

The Ooltewah-Coltegedale Telephone Company own 

on scholarships or just keep- 
ing SMC financially afloat. 

"Why can't SMC be served 
by Southern Bell since our 
phone company is so expen- 
sive and gives such poor 
service?" asked Frank 
Roman, junior journalism 
major. The reason is simple, 
yet complicated. 

When Southern Junior Col- 
lege (now SMC) moved to the 
Collegedale area, no phone 
system existed. The college 
first laid phone lines to 
Ooltewah in 1917 for the initial 
service, then later purchased 
and constructed phojie lines to 
Chattanooga for better ser- 
in 1950 Horace Vaughan 

purchased the franchise ri 
to provide telephone servici 
the Collegedale-Apison- 

Oolfewah area. The present 
company is owned by the 
founder's daughter and 
son-in-law. The franchise 
that Vaughan originally 
bought cannot be revoked 
except in cases of gross mis- 

So as long a 

the phone 

company provide 

s reasonable 

service, they have this area as 

their exclusive 


South Central 

Bell cannot 

provide service 

this area 

because it is 

not their 


Will their ever 

be improve- 

ments in our ph 

one system? 

According to Edwin Walker, 
local manager of the phone 
company, a new digital 
switching system is on the 
drawing boards. The new 
system would speed transfer 
of calls and improve the 
quality of all calls covered by 
the Ooltewah-CoUegedale 
phone company. 

But don't hold your breath. 
Ihe new swtching station is 
supposed to be completed in 
the fall of 1982. Construction 
has not yet begun. 

One last consolation. "With 
the phone equipment SMC 
has," commented Kenneth 
Spears, associate business 
manager at SMC, "no better 
phone service could be ex-

SMCs gradual changes: for the best? 


1 first came to CoUegedale 
in 1945 as an academy stu- 
dent, graduated from SMC in 
1951 , and joined the faculty in 
1965. I have observed many 
changes through the years and 
believe they have been for the 

There have been changes in 
physical facilities. In 1945 the 
college buildings consisted of 
Lynn Wood Hall. Jones Hall, 
the old wooden Taige Hall, 
and the tabernacle. 

Academy as well as college 
classes met in Lynn Wood, 
where the chapel, library, and 
music studios were also locat- 
ed. The cafeteria was in the 
cheerless Jones Hall base- 
ment. The tabernacle, smaller 
at that time, served as both a 
church and a gym. 

Physical education classes 
sometimes had to take a walk 
around the campus instead of 
using the gym, which was 
often needed for church func- 
tions. The present gym with 
its many recreational facili> 
ties, including swimming and quite a contrast. 

We now have facilities com- 
pleted or under construction to 
provide each division with its 
own distinctive area. The ar- 
chitecture of the buildings and 

the garden-like landscaping 
bespeak of Southern hospital- 

There have been changes in 
the curriculum. In 1945 not a 
single course was offered in 
the following disciplines in 
which we now have majors: 
Nursing, art, computer sci- 
ence, radio/TV/film. social 
work, and sociology. Only two 
courses were offered in psy- 
chology and physical educa- 
tion and only one in Industrial 
arts. Offerings were meager i 

have much wider opportuni- 

The students who gradua- 
ted at the time I attended SMC 
are now primarily ministers, 
educators, businessmen, or 
secretaries. In addition to 
preparing for service in these 
areas, the approximately 400 
graduates who now leave SMC 
each year are ready to take 
jobs in many other fields. 

Some of these include tech- 
nical and professional nurs- 
ing, construction, mainten- 

ance, computer programming, 
medical technology, broad- 
casting, and journalism. Many 
other students take pre-pro- 
fessional courses and continue 
their education elsewhere, es- 
pecially in paramedical fields. 
There have been changes in 
our student body. In 1945 
there were 219 college stu- 
dents, almost all of them from 
the South. This contrasts with 
an average enrollment of 2000

called a large college, its 
present enrollment is large in 
comparison with enrollments 
of the early 1920s. The "good 
old days" were better because 
students and faculty were 
more like a family: we knew 
each other and our teachers 
better than is possible in a 
larger group. 

The rules and regulations of 
the 1920s did not seem greatly 
oppressive to most of us- 
aithough we recollect some of 
them with a smile. And 
though students now may be 
allowed more personal respon- 
sibility for their conduct and 
are given more opportunity to 
assume the risks of their own 
decisions, many of the con- 
straints of those early years 
provided the matrix for a more 
settling development of char- 
acter during the still imma- 
ture years of youth. 

Wc had a beautiful fruitful 
valley in those days, blessed 
with grain and grass, cows 
and chickens, fruit and flow- 
ers. We still have a beautiful 
valley and one of the most 
beautiful campuses in our 
land. Some things have been 
lost; others have been gained. 
SMC has not been immune to 
the economic, technological, 
social, and educational 
changes of more than half a 

Whereas it was necessary 
for most students of my day to 
earn alt or most of their 
expenses in college through 
employment provided by the 
college, we now live in days of 
easy cash from home or easy 
student loans (in spite of the 
tightening of eligibility crite- 
ria). And whereas students of 
my day frequently lacked time 
to study because the demands 
of the business office, or 
saving of the crop, or the 
finishing of a job in the shop 
required them to put in over- 

time, too often today studies 
may be neglected, not because 
students do not have an 
abundance of time, but be- 
cause they have not learned to 
discipline themselves and 
make a proper assignment of 
time for the pursuit of know- 
ledge and the pursuit of 

Few students owned auto- 
mobiles in my day. Now 
special parking must be pro- 
vided for those who need or 
think they need cars or motor- 
cycles. This fact, coupled with 
the freedom to go and come 
with little restraint, accentu- 
ate the problem of the wise 
use of time for today's stu- 

Most students of my day 
depended largely on the cafe- 
teria for their food at regularly 
scheduled mealtimes. Now 
food is accessible at all hours 
of the day, tending to irregular 
eating habits and eating be- 
tween meals. 

Physical exercise for most 
students of my day was ob- 
tained in useful work. While 
the work sometimes (if it was 
sedentary) did not provide 
much physical exercise, most 
students accomplished a use- 
ful and financially profitable 
piece of work which was 
satisfying to comtemplate. 
The games we play today to 

obtain physical exercise, while 
often more intense and physi- 
cally rewarding, cannot bring 
the soul satisfaction that 
comes from useful work. 

In the pursuit of useful 
work, we early students 
learned the value of coopera- 
tive effort. Especially in the 
cultivation of the soil and 
together eating the harvest, 
students and faculty experien- 
ced the feeling of belonging to 
a worthwhile community and 
to one another.

The eternal word 

This book contains the mind 
of God, the state of man, the 
way of salvation, the doom of 
sinners, and the happiness of 
believers. Its doctrines are 
holy, its precepts are binding, 
its histories are true, and its 
decisions are immutable. 

Read it to be wise, believe 
in if to be safe, and practice it 
to be holy. It contains light to 
direct you, food to support 
you, and comfort to cheer you. 
It is the traverler's map, the 
pilgrim's staff, the pilot's 
compass, the solider's sword, 
and the Christian's charter. 

Here paradise is restored, 
heaven opened, and the gates 

of hell disclosed. Christ is its 
grand object; our good, its 
design; and the glory of God, 
its end. It should fill the 
memory, rule the heart, and 
guide the feet. 

Read it slowly, frequently, 
and prayerfully. It is a mine of 
wealth, a paradise of glory, 
and a river of pleasure. It is 
given you in life, will be 
opened in judgement, and be 
remembered forever. 

It involves the highest res- 
ponsibility, will reward the 
greatest labor, and will 
condemn alt who trifle with its 
sacred contents.

Clarification of the title of 
this rebutter's rebuttle will be 
made throughout the course of 
this short epistle. Although 
quantity and quality are two 
goals that are sought after in 
the intramural program, the 
general philosophy of physical 
education demands considera- 
tion. This philosophy is fabri- 
cated on the foundation of the 

This philosophy has been 
with mankind since the early 
days of earth's creation. The 
whole man concept deals with 
the spiritual, physical, mental 
and social development of 
man. For our purpose 1 shall 
include the physical with the 
social development of man. 

One of the major functions 
of the Physical Education 
Department at Southern Mis- 
sionary College is the develop- 
ment and administration of 
programs which involve stu- 
dents in enjoyable physical 
activity. Numbers are impor- 
tant here. 

Because of this, effort is 
made to provide and involve 
every student in some type of

portant in this regard because 
we are discussing general 
physical development. 
A particular intramural 

activity such as Softball may 
not be high on a student's 
priority list, so he/she may 
wish not to participate in that

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico{CH)- 
The largest branch of the 
University of Puerto Rico 
remains closed following a 
student strike over a tripling 
of tuition this fall. 

Students reacted violently 
when the university raised its 
tuition this fall for the first 
time in 31 years. To protest 
the jump from S5 to S15 per 
credit hour, throusands of 
students joined a strike called 
by the General Student 
Council. They successfully 
disrupted the few classes that 
were held until university 
governing board closed down 
the campus October I. 

The closing came after shots 
were fired and a maintenance 
worker was injured during a 
confrontation between campus 
security and the striking stu- 
dents. Each side claims the 
other is responsible for firing 
the shots. 

University officials say in- 
federal and local 

student aid will offset the 
tuition hike for any needy 
students. University President 
Ismael Almodovar told the 
New York Time the tuition 
increase will cost each student 
only $50 more than last year. 
The revenue is badly needed, 
officials also say, to maintain 
UPR's accreditation by im- 
proving deficiencies in phy- 
sical facilities and the library 

Student Council members 
agree the additional money is 
needed, but believe any in- 
crease should be based on 
each student's ability to pay, 
not on a flat tuition hike. 

According to a spokesman 
in the Dean of Social Sciences 
office, the Rio Piedras campus 
will remain closed until late 
October. Students and most 
faculty members have left the 
campus, and only adminis-

Is r!w/' SMC, College- 
dale?!"' If ten. fifteen, twenty 
years have passed since you 
last visited your alma mater, 
your question is legitimate. 
The answer is yes and no, Yes, 
it is Southern Missionary Col- 
lete, 1981. No, it is definitely 
NOT SMC as many of us 
remembered it in the SO's and 
early 60's. 

With the passing of time, 
change has come to College- 
dale and that's not all bad. For 
nostalgic college graduates, 
however, it's a little like 
watching your children grow 
up and leave home; things 
aren't the same as yesteryear, 
nor will they ever be. Thomas 
Wolfe's words come into even 
clearer focus: "You can't go 
home again." 

Leafing through pages of 
my old '61 Soulhern Memories 
vividly reminded me of the 
numerous kaleidoscopic tran- 
sitions in plant, people and 
programs. Older buildings 
standing circa 1961 and on- 
ward fell under the bulldozer 
blade and steel wrecking ball, 
making way for larger, more 
modern Southern Colonial red 
brick edifices. 

In '61, a lot of open space 
existed in "Happly Valley" 
before the College slid down 
the hill to occupy the vacancy. 
Talge Hall, twin building of 
Jones Hall, housed most of the 
men. Jones Hall was taken 
over by male residents in '62 
when the ladies moved into

since become the "new" 
men's dormitory. 

The old Tabernacle did 
double duty as gymnasium/

then turned into a church on

but also housed numerous

In the early 60's, the old 
store was still around, as well 
as the post office and service

to a newer model, and the 
minuscule dairy bar phased

Still, there was space 
enough, and if you were quick 
enough before the annual 
Vj-inch of slushy snow melted, 
you could grab an old dishpan 
or other means of metal 
conveyance and slide down

Music on the campus was 
made more enjoyable by Dr 
Morris Taylor, Mable Wood, 
beloved friend and confidante 
Dorothy Ackerman and Don 
and Stewart Crook (living 
proof that not all Crooks are 
bad). We learned English and 
foreign languages from Gor- 
don Madgwick, Dr. Clyde 
Bushnell, Olive Westphal and 
Evelyn Lindeberg. 

Stanley Brown was "Mr. 
Librarian," Dr. Jim Ackerman 
supervised the testing and 
audio-visual departments, and 
William Taylor worked as 
Dean of Student Affairs. 
Though he is no longer dean of

always be that to us who knew 
him as a man who was firm 
but fair, and was always ready 
to listen and attempt to pump 
wise counsel into our young 
and foolish heads.

Dr H.H. Kuhlman, Edgar

also sang a pretty fair tenor in

labored in education. 

In history. Dr. E.T. Watrous 
(an amazing, gentle man who 
never forgot a name) and Dr.

The religion department found 
Dr. Otto Christensen (brother

Southern cynic 

by Steve Dickerhoff J 

October 22, 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/11 


This column is a reprint of 
the very first article I had 
published in the Accent. /( 
was printed during my fresh- 
man year in 1978. I thought it 
would be interesting to read 
and besides. I couldn't think 
of anything to write about this 

Have you ever thought how 
many times a computer has 
made your life simpler? For 
instance, your student ID card 
saves a lot of time fumbling 
around with money. The ID 
card can also help you psycho- 
logically. Say you are walking 
from the cafe to your eight 

The way it was 

[continued from page 10\ 

question: Was that her hair or 
a teased haystack on her 
head? Sometimes, only her 
hairdresser knew for sure. 

Guys sported pencil-thin 
neckties, very tapered pants, 
narrow-Iapeled suite without 
vests, and a lot of skin 
showing through their flat-top 

With the exception of the 
lobby and lounges, "Lights 
out" in dorms was 10:30 on 
weeknights and 11 p.m. on 
Saturday. Public courting of 
the opposite sex was generally 
frowned upon and an open 
display of affection was a 
definite no-no (if you were 

Romance, if practiced (and 
it was!), was cultivated sur- 
reptitiously among the sha- 
dows, in a darkened parked 
car on campus (if a student 
was lucky enough to have one) 
and occasionally the long line 
of bushes paralleling the road 
in front of the music and 
library buildings seemed to 
come alive under the exertions 
of clandestine clinching 

Guys ALWAYS asked the 
girls for dates, the only excep- 
tion being the Ladies' Recep- 
tion Banquet held every other 
year. Couples wishing to make 
an evening on the town never 
'eft without the extra female 
chaperone present and ac- 

o'clock class and your hair is a 
mess. Pull out your ID card 
and take comfort in the fact 
that your hair could never look 
as bad as it does in that 

Computers also make life in 
the classroom easier. Instead 
of giving the ole "take out a 
sheet of paper" quiz, the 
teacher hands out computer 
sheets for you to use. It's not 
ail that much easier for the 
student, but it saves the 
teacher a lot of grading time 
which he uses to think up 
more work. The fun thing 
about these sheets is fdling in 

your name. First, you spell out 
your name in the blocks 
provided, then blacken the 
corresponding letters be- 
neath. Now connect these dots 
by drawing a line through 
each one. from the first letter 
to the last. It usually takes 
form of an animal or promi- 
nent faculty member. They 
call this computer science. 

When you get out of your 
eight o'clock class, if it's 
Tuesday or Thursday, you join 
in the exodus to the church for 
chapel. On the way in, some- 
one, usually a computer dis- 
guised as a student, hands you 

a computer attendance card. 
They are pretty simple to fill 
out. At first 1 had trouble 
remembering my ID number. 
It's easier for me now, be- 
cause it equals the number of 
hours I have to stand in line at 
the CK. 

After chapels I come back to 
my room and study. Once I 
had a thought, "Wouldn't it 
be neat if I could study by 
plugging my brain into a 
computer, then lay down and 
get some sleep." But some 
people have already beaten 
me to this idea. Have you ever 
seen people sleeping in class 

with their heads down on top 
of their books? The same 
principle applies. 

Last week 1 went down to 
Taco Bell. My credit must 
have been bad, because they 
wouldn't accept my student ID 
card. 1 have to use (excuse the 
expression) "cash." (One of 
those four-letter words around 

As I finish writing this 
article, I'm about to climb into 
bed, but first I say my prayers 
and program the computer to 
tuck me in. And some people 
think this school is getting too 

counted for. Ditto for any cars 
with mixed company going 
home on holiday and vacation 

Memories flood back of 
socials, films and other Satur- 
day night occasions where 
couples who had enough nerve 
to brave the sidewalk stroll in 
front of Talge Hall-destina- 
tion Tabernacle-'Often felt as 
if they were "walking the 
Gauntlet" as the guys in the 
dorm thundered down the 
catcalls, wolf whistles and 
other sly subtleties and in- 
nuendos. The rule was: eyes 
straight ahead and keep walk- 
ing (and you'll settle the score 
later with those turkeys!) 

Despite the stringent rules 
and regulations on dating back 
then, our stunted social lives 
managed to thrive and flour- 
ish. We still managed to meet, 
match up, mate; and, sooner 
or later, marry. 

Intramural sports in the 60's 
at SMC closely resembled that 
of the 80's, possibly played in 
a little different order during 
the year (flag ball, basketball, 
volleyball, softball;tennis any- 
time, as weather permitted). 

WSMC-FM in 1961 was a 
little hole-in-the-wall outfit 
tucked away in a second floor 
comer of Lynn Wood Hall, 
booming out to the worid on 
all 10 watts of power.

entertainment boiled down to ment made any profit on those

and heading for Chattanooga, During the 50's, student 

visitmg someone in the Vil- 
lage, or staying in your room 
studying books or the wall- 

Going to Chattanooga took a 
little longer in the 60's. There 
was no Interstate 24 bypass. 
For a change in the menu from 
the College Cafeteria or C.K., 
the main hangout was "Mr. 
Fifteen," a burger/fries/ 
shake "greasy spoon" eatery. 
(The name gives you some 
idea of what inflation has done 
to the price of a hamburger). 

Another gastronomical de- 
light for a faithful few who 
took their eating seriously 
involved fasting a day or so, 
then loading into one's heap 
and heading for a little speak- 
easy in RossviJle where, for 
$1.25, a collegian could belly 
up to round tables with revolv- 
ing centerpieces groaning un- 
der the weight of vegetables, 
fruit cobblers and protein 
delights and eat all he/she 
could hold. (Sorry, no "doggy 
bags"). Somehow. I can never 
believe that food establish-

pains. Students numbered ap- 
proximately 500 to 600 in '61. 
By 1965. growth was up to 4 
figures. It has since become 
the fastest growing Adventist 
college in the country. 

One area has remained 
constant through the years: 
Quality of education at South- 
ern Missionary College has 
always been high. By any 
standards. SMC college grad- 
uates go Forth and acquit 
themselves well in boards and 
exams, graduate schools, R.N. 
and C.P.A. positions, and 
other post-graduate endeav- 

SMC need not apologize for 
its fine educational program 
and curriculum. We alumni 
who return occasionally to get 
re-acquainted with our alma 
mater never cease to marvel 
as change and progress occur, 
but the same spirit prevails,

Festival outlined 

SA's Fall Festival Week 
shapes up like this: 
Wednesday. October 28 will 
be "60's day;" wear your 
1%0's best all day or anything 
from times past and eras long 
ago (except, of course. Adam 
and Eve's first outfit). 

Thursday is scheduled as 
"Nerd Day;" yes, the annua! 
ambush of hornrims, slicked 
hair, and superfluous 
academic utensils, or however 
you feel like interpreting nerd 
costuming. Anything goes but 
skin <at least certain portions). 

Friday has been appointed 
"Variety Day;" western wear 
should be popular, but, as the 
name indicates, anything from 
historical characters to adver- 
tisement products will be 
acceptable. Use your hand- 
me-downs and imagination, or 
dress your very best. Who 

To ensure the weekend's 
exciting, grab a date for 
Saturday nighl and head for 
the party at the Student Park. 
(The limit on the time taken 
for the walk to the park is set 
at 1'/] hours. Please abide by 
that, stringent though it may 

Expect all sorts of surprises, 
but you may count on lots of 

good food, fun, relaxation, 
mingling and a great film. 

Costume judging at the 
party will be divided into three 
main categories: 1) 1 960' s and 
other eras. 2) Nerd, and 3) 

In each category there will 
be a first prize of $25, a second 
prize of $15. and a third prize 
of $10— plus a grand prize of 
$50 which may or may not go 
to a previous prize-winner. 

A bonfire for warming, look- 
ing, staring or marshmallows 
(bring coathangers) burns 
expectantly in Saturday 
night's party plans. 

To regress a bit. we must 
mention the picnic supper 
scheduled for Tuesday even- 
ing, October 27. from 6 to 7 
p.m. No formal program is 
planned, but plenty of "blar- 
ing music" should provide a 
nice atmosphere for some 
informal mingling and mixing. 
(Wow. like, gel the rap with 
that nice woman or man 
you've had your eye on.) The 
picnic will wind down about 
7:30 p.m. 

That's SA Fall Festival

f the success. All nursing 

students are given a compre-

a score of 40% must be earned

who score below 40% have the 
choice of either dropping out

Fall Festival 
October 28 — 
October 31 

by Greg Culpeppe 

Lance Martin, a junior bus- 
iness major at Southern Mis- 
sionary College, was fired on 
Tuesday, October 27, because 
of a letter to the editor that 
appeared in the October 22 
issue of the Southern Accent. 

A desk worker for Talge 
Hall until his recent dismissal, 
Martin had indicated in his 
letter that the men's residence 
hall suffered from a roach 
problem that the "faculty of 
the dorm have been handling 
rather poorly..." 

Assistant Dean of Men Ron 
Qualley notified Martin of the 
decision to release him from 
the dorm's employment. 

Qualley states that, "Any- 
time someone works for some- 
one else he should support 
that employer and establish- 
ment he works for. This 
problem should be discussed 
one to one, not in public." 

When asked if he thought 
firing Martin was too drastic 
of action. Qualley answered. 
"No. I don't. I've talked to 
Lance and he agreed with me. 
The problem is serious enough 
not to overlook." 

Martin denied the alle/ja- 
tions that he had agreed with 
the action taken by saying, 1 

don't agree with the dean's 
decision. He has a right to 
fire, but not because of the 
expression of conditions that 
do exist in the dorm." 

The former desk worker 
described what prompted his 
letter. "One night when 1 was 
working. 1 found a roach in the 
bottom of my water mug." he 

Dean of Students Everett 
Schlisner defended Qualley's 
decision. "Certain things you 
can say in public and certain 
things you can't." Schlisner 
insisted. "This would have 
been better to be left alone." 

As for the roach problem, 
Schlisner explained. "His 
(Martin's) letter aggravated 
us because we are doing all we 
can to curtail the problem and 
he knows it. We sprayed the 
entire dorm twice this sum- 
mer, with the drawers out and 
everything." He concluded 
by saying. "We now are 
waiting for a dry chemical to 
arrive so we can try that." 

Perhaps roaches will soon 
be just a memory. In the 
meantime, though, Martin has 
no job and the roaches con- 
tinue to live. 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/October 29, 1981 


Studying wati some wo/ie 

Traditionally, Adventists have avoided military enlistment. If 
they are swept in by the draft, most will register as 
1-AO— medical work but conscientious objection to beanng 

Disregarding traditionalism, may I direct your attention to 
two other views? 

War is immoral. Period. Any support I give the military, 
whether financially, medically or otherwise, is to give my brand 
of condonement to one of Satan's cruelest devices for aiding the 
planned destruction of the morals of men. 

Medical help is one essential part of the total war machine. If 
I register as a medic I have become a part of the war. 

As for the Sabbath problem, does it matter whether I'm 
fighting the war in the hospital or on the front? No matter 
where I work, I'm still fighting and breaking the Sabbath 

There were wars in Old Testament times in which God 
supported a particular side, but He was in direct communication 
with His people and could dictate their next move. 

Furthermore, God is the eternal judge and can read the 
hearts of men. He could guarantee that the cities destroyed 
were full of men who had hardened their hearts against Him 
and could not be saved. 

In modem war, we cannot know the hearts of the men we kill. 
Think of the implications of ending the life of a non-Christian 
who, if allowed to live, would have given his heart to Christ. 

Didn't Christ say that we should love our enemies? How can 
we love someone whom we are seeking to destroy? 

Finally, as Christians we should have enough faith to trust 
God to protect us from the non-Christian countries aggresively 
seeking to dominate our lives. 

I am a proud patriotic American. I will render unto Caesar 
the things that arc Caesar's unless it interferes with the law of 

God— in this case: "Thou shalt not kill." 
When it comes to war, you can count me out. 

Hand me my gun. 

Ever since sin entered the worid, war has been a part of our 
lives. I cannot avoid it. 

Even God. in Israel's ancient Theocratic government, 
directed warfare against heathen nations. Startling enough, all 
of these wars weren't defensive. 

Today I face the decision of how I will regard the military and 
my duty to the United States of America. 

Several times in the New Testament Christ quoted the 
commandment, "Thou shalt not kill." 

There are two Greek words that can be used to mean putting 
to death. One means "kill" while the other means "murder." 
In every instance when Christ quoted the commandment, he 
used the word for "murder." 

To bear arms in just defense of our country and aim at the 
enemy is not murder. 

Very few people call it murder when the executioner flips the 
switch that sends power to the electric chair of a convicted 
criminal. Why call it murder when you shoot the man who has 
joined the ranks of a country that is unjust and fails to pursue 
peace or human rights. 

As for Sabbath problems, notice the precedence set by the 
Children of Israel, under the leadership of God, in biblical 
times. (Read in Joshua about the battle of Jericho and see on 
what day the war reached its peak with the slaughter of the 

city 5

intended for man to kill animals, yet he allowed Noah and 
generations after to do so for food. God wasn't inducing Noah to 
sin. He was coping with the paradox of sin in a world that was 
designed to be sinless. 

What if Adventists had a "bumper crop" year in evangelism 
and half of the U.S. citizens became Adventists? Would the 
country's defenses falter? Perhaps we would just call a truce on

When my name is called and I'm needed on the front, my 
conscience forces me to say, "Hand me my gun." 

Although I hesitate to admonish anyone as to which of these 
two views is the best, I feel that being attached to one logical 
view has more merit than walking the fence with the traditional 
Adventist philosophy. 

Either you participate in war— or you don't. To half heartedly

Dear Editor: 

Today I went to chapel like I 
always do on Thrusdays and 
sat my regular six rows back 
from the middle of the church. 
Everything was great until 
after closing prayer. While 
waiting patiently for my row to 
be dismissed, I suddenly felt 
like I was in a mad house. 

Those who hadn't sat where 
they would be dismissed first, 
along with everybody else in 
the whole place, bombarded

gave up on putting girls' cards

other. He did well to catch the

Ihe sexual revolution: has it affected SMC? 

.^m^ ^HaLm. 1 The sexual revolution h3« within u__. 

The sexual revolution has 
|affected Southern Missionary 
College in the last 10 years. 
We have seen these changes 
(Occur in the career and social 
roles, educational opportuni- 
ties, and recreational activi- 

One of the most recent 
examples of changes in career 
and social roles has been the 
election of the first woman 
judge to the Supreme Court, 
Judge Sandra Day O'Connor. 

Within our own school govern- 
ment we have seen the elec- 
tion of several women officers 
to the Student Association. 

We are now experiencing 
changes within the social 
aspect. The reversal of tradi- 
tional roles in dating is one 
obvious change. 

The women of SMC are now 
slowly taking the initiative of 
asking men out and paying the 

In the area of education a 

iber of examples of the 
revolution's effects can be 
seen. Men are now included in 
the SMC nursing program and 
finding recognition in other 
traditionally feminine fields 
such as elementary education. 

Another example would be 
in the admission of men into 
what once were strictly female 
schools, such as cosmotology. 

SMC is now admitting fe- 
male students to majors of 
construction and theology. 

The third area that we 
observe changes is in recrea- 
tion. Intramural sports are 
now becoming popular with 
the female student body. Men 
are not the only ones con- 
cerned with physical fitness. 

Considering these points, 
we believe that the sexual

We feel that in the future we 
will see even more drastic

1 ran back to the room to ask 
my friend if we were In the 
right dorm. She told me we 
were and to ignore them; they 
were just some guys who 
spent the night with their girl- 
friends. She said that sex is no 

big deal and that everyone 
does it. 
But she was wrong — every- 
doesn't do it. Not every- 



laxed approach to pre-marital, 
extra-marital, and non-marital 
sex which the sexual revolu- 
tion has brought about. 
Especially not at SMC. 

Most of the students en- 
rolled here come from good 
Christian homes with high 
standards and morals. We 
have been taught since we 
were young that sex was not 
made for the back seat of an 
MG on a Saturday night, but 
rather as an intimate ex- 
pression of the marriage rela- 

However, I am not so naive 
to believe that there is no 
sexual activity on this campus. 
I'm sure that there is, yet It 
does not compare to the 
promiscuous attitude that is 
prevalent at the majority of 
the public universities. 

To summarize. I feel that 
though SMC's attitudes to- 
ward relationships between 
the sexes have undoubtedly 
been affected by the se.\ual 
revolution of the I960's and 
'70's, we remain far above the 
world's casual approach to 
love and sex.

Fruits, nuts, friars and Hallowe'en 

by Ron Springett 

If someone soaps up your 
windows on October 31 or 
decorates your front yard 
shade tree with toilet paper, 
you have become one of the 
countless victims of Hal- 
lowe'en celebrations. While 
you are cleaning up the mess, 
it might be nice to have in 
mind the great personage of 
antiquity who started the 

stories, which perpetrate 
heathen customs inherited 
from the mists of antiquity. 
Most of these customs are 
connected with ancient beliefs 
about ghosts, witches, gob- 
lins, and various supernatural 
creatures of darkness that 
appear on this particular eve. 
The celebration may in part 
be derived from the Druid

The fact that the ancient

considerably transformed) still 
characterize the popular cele-

the human race as creatures of

As with so many other 
holidays, Christendom has 
here also inherited the time of 
the Hallowe'en celebration 
from her pagan predecessors. 
In the Christian church there 
were feasts in both the west- 
ern and eastern churches in 
commemoration of all the 
martyrs who had shed their 
blood for Christ. 

Exactly how this feast of all 
martyrs (saints) came to be 
celebrated on November 1 in 
the West is not clear. Signifi- 
cantly, the evidence point?; to 
the beginning of this celebra- 
tion of the martyrs on Novem- 
I in Ireland, whence it 
passed across to the north of 
England and thus to the 
European continent. Novem- 
ber 2 is known in the church 
calendar as All Souls Day, on 
which day all the Christian 
dead are remembered. 

The choice of this day is 
traditionally attributed to St. 
Odilo. the fifth Abbot of 
Cluny, as a day when prayers 
should be said for the dead. 
Throughout the Middle Ages 
it was popular belief that the 
souls suffering in purgatory 
could appear on this day as 
will-o'-the-wisps. witches, 
toads, etc., especially to per- 
sons who had wronged them 
during their life.

It all began with the move 
from Jones Hall. 

I had been thinking about 
those poor guys ever since the 
transition received public ac- 
claim on the front page of the

First of all, the men needed 
to get out of Jones and in with 
the boys in Talge. When this 
was completed, perhaps the 
biology department could oc-

Next, something simply had 
to be done about the women. 
They have each been clam- 
oring for their own washer and 
dryer, saying that that was all 
they had even wanted out of 
college to begin with. They, of 
course, would be relocated at 
the plaza laundromat. I 
thought happily how excited 
each of them would be when 
they could look forward to a 
whole existence of doing noth- 
ing but laundering their de- 
signer jeans. 

Student Finance, of course, 
would move into Thatcher 
Hall, whose mile-long corri- 
dors would be ideal for the 
equally lengthy lines that are 
known to exist around Wright 
Hall. Several snack bars in- 
stalled along the way at stra- 
tegic points would prevent the 
students from starving while 


I reflected for a while on 
these changes. I couldn't 
really see where the economy 
had improved any, but per- 
haps the right changes had not 
yet been made. I tried to think 
if there was anything around 
that the college could possibly 
do without. Naturally, I 
thought of the CK. Out of the 
millions of dollars expended 
each month for groceries, 
surely a few sacrifices could 
be made in this area. Perhaps 
our Arabian friends a few 
doors down would be interest- 
ed in sharing our oil resour- 
ces. I wondered how much the 
phone company would charge 
for a long distance call to the 

The only problem with all 
the rearranging was that I 
wasn't sure just how the 

college benefitted from it. 
Sure, I had rejocated every- 
one; but the buildings were 
still in use. 

Then I remembered the 
age-ole saying, "Two can live 
as cheaply as one." If the 
college would just use one 
large building, like Thatcher, 
for a combined dorm, dining 
hall and multi-purpose class- 
room, everything else could be 
shut down. The savings would 

be astronomical, the students 
would be delighted, and, best 
of all. no one would have to 
give up the kind of community 
spirit that exists when a group 
is put together. How positively 

There's only one thing 
wrong with this plan. Some-

To the best of my know- 
ledge, modern churches do 
not make much of Hallowe'en 
pro or con. Christianity has 
always had a few oi the 
Puritan type in its midst that 
would disassociate themselves 
from these wicked pagan as- 
sociations. The Christian 
genius at its best, however, 
has not sought to abolish or 
destroy pagan motifs if it 
could infuse a new meaning 
into the old symbols. When- 
ever pagan symbols could be 
readily assimilated to Chris- 
tian views, thev have been 

allowed to stand. Many of 
these pagan symbols have so 
completely lost their original 
pagan significance that today 
they are considered uniquely 

Here we have a wide open 
and relatively safe field for the 
exercise of sanctified imagin- 
ation. Some Christian groups 
collect canned goods for the 
needy- Others pay "spook" 
visits to the elderly and the 
lonely. Christians throughout 
the ages have substituted for 
pagan practices whatever is 
wholesome, uplifting or pious 
and in accord with the Chris- 
tian faith. 

Seventh-day Adventists 
stand in and continue this long 
Christian tradition and. in this 
light, a reading of Advenlist 
Home 472-82 is quite inter- 
esting on the Christian cele- 
bration of holidays. In the final 
analysis, it is people of faith 
who give meaning to the 
Christian life and symbols are 
merely tools at their disposal 
with which they express that 

The negative pagan associa- 
tions of this holiday expressed 
originally the presence of 
malevolent disembodied 

spirits that could do great

How do you feel the sexual revolution has 
affected SMC students? 

Barry Tryon, senior, theology. Marietta, GA: I thought the 
sexual revolution occurred in the 60's, therefore its impact is 
felt very moderately on the SMC campus. 

Jay Brand, senior, psychology, Louisville. KY: The sexual 
revolution was marked by living together and orgies, neither of 
which have affected SMC students. 

Paula Grubbs. freshman, nursing. Knoxville. TN: I think that 
because this is a Christian school it is not as much of a problem 
as at a public university, but kids are more open today than 20 
years ago. Where are we supposed to live together? In the

SMC to change its name 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege may be changing its 
name within the next year. At 
the last board meeting, the 
name change issue was placed 
on the agenda for the Febru- 
ary, 1982 board meeting. Ad- 
ministration officials seem 
confident a new name will be 
selected and passed. 

The college has been con- 
sidering the possible altera- 
tion of the name for years, but 
a variety of factors seems to 
have brought the issue to a 
head. First, the name "mis- 
sionary" doesn't have the 
same connotations as when it

November 5. 1981 

A committee has been ap- 
pointed by SMC to consider 
possible names. Such names 
as Southern College or South- 
eastern College have been 
considered, but many would 
like the school named after a 
historical Adventist figure in- 
stead of SMC's geographical, 

The addition of "adventist" 
or "union" to SMC's new 
name has been all but ruled 
out because of the negative 
connotations with people not 
connected with the school. 

But whatever name is de- 
cided on, it will not be the first 
in SMC's history. The fore- 
runner of SMC, Graysville 
Academy, was founded in 
1892. Four years later, the 
name was changed to South- 
ern Industrial School because 
of the planned industries that 
would help students pay their 
way through .school. 

The industries never came 
to Graysville, so in 1904, the 
school was renamed Southern 
Training School. In 1916 the 
school moved to CoUegedale 
and received another name. 
Southern Junior College. 

The present name has been 
with us since about 1945 when 
SMC received its senior col- 
lege status.

Distribution of the DePaul University newspaper was recently 
defaySfora°"week because a university admin.stra or seized all 
but about 800 copies of the normal 7,500 press run^ 

The newspapers's administration moderator sent ""^ hal 
the conftscation of the student P-^icafon was due to a story 
that was printed after the newspaper's staff had been ordered 
not to. The staff had voted unanimously to ^er the stor, wtach 
involved a rape that had allegedly taken place in the women s 
restroom of a campus building. , ^ . . , „,„ ,. . ^j„„ 

Editor Vince Kellen reports that the decision to run the story 
was based on a belief that the information was important to 
students "There was nothing legally, ethically or morally 
wrong with it," he says. "We didn't P^n. her ('he victims) 
name and we didn't run some information about her that had 
been in the local newspapers. We believe if something IJie this 
is happening the students need to know about it. 

Where do you draw the line on freedom of the press in a 
student newspaper? I would like to suggest three guidelines for 
iudging whether a story should, or should not, be published m a 
college publication-particularly an Adventist college publica- 

T. Stories should cover happenings that are relevant and are 
of student concern or interest. 

2 Stories should be published that cover issues not intending 
to harm individuals. Most stories should have a principle at 
stake— not a person. 

3. News stories should not be cut because of any reason other 
than not adhering to the above two guidelines. 

In the case of DePaul, the rape story will cause some students 
to be wary and cautious. Perhaps the outrage caused by the 
campus rape will defer further occurances of a similar nature. 

Finally, the story will become well known, regardless of 
whether or not it appeared in the newspaper. Publication will at 
least insure that students hear facts, not rumors. 

Fortunately, University President John Richardson vetoed 
the lower administralors ruling. As a result, the newspaper 
finally was distributed a week late. At least it was distributed.

3. The Reasoning Letter: 
This letter clearly defines the 
"issues" (often comparing 
jeans with other pants) and 
ends with a ringing appeal 
that good sense and unpreju- 
diced judgement be used to 
resolve the matter. 

4. The Intellectual Letter: 
This letter is a masterpiece of 
profound thinking. A former 
vear's Accent contained one 
such letter that described, in 
masterful prose, the historical 
development of ideas in West- 
ern civilization (evidently the 
process is different in Eastern 
civilization) and caught up the 
SMC blue jeans controversy in 
its bold sweep. Errors and 
misconceptions were solidly 
refuted, including the belief 
that wearing jeans lowers 
scholastic performance. 

In fact, the writer stated, at 
Walla Walla he wore jeans 

and made much higher grades 
than he did at SMC where he 
could not wear jeans. What 
this probably means is that an 
"A" at SMC means more than 
an "A" at Walla Walla. 

The book could begin with a 
foreword by Mrs. Moore and 
end with an essay on the 
future of the blue jeans con- 

I look forward to seeing 
more "jeans letters" to the 
editor. However, anyone who 
wishes to respond to my letter 
by writing (1) a refutation, (2) 
a refutation of a refutation, or 
(3) a letter which attempts to 
escape being one of the four 
main types, should send the 
letter directlv to me at Talee 
105. ' 

These letters will undoubt- 
edly be even funnier than the 
previously described types of 
letters, and I want to enjoy 
them firsthand before publish- 
ing them for the enjoyment of 

Sincerely yours. 


Dear Editor:

Just a short letter to express 
an opinion on Lisa Ohman's 
article on the Sexual Revolu-

My Dear Ms. Ohman: a 
well written article, except for 
one minor detail— MG's don't 
have back seats; unless, of 
course, on some nocturnal 
expidition to Chattanooga 
International Airport, you 
have discovered something 
the rest of us don't know 
about, or that the manufac- 

turers did-not include in their 
final design. 

Sure you don't wanna re- 
state your opinion?

I was also upset by the mini- 
skirts being worn on campus. I 
really feel that we should not 
let our standards down for 
even one day. We are sup- 
posed to be a Christian school.

in fun, but we don't need that 
kind of fun. We can have fun 
within limits.

Jay Brand 

Dear Editor: 

It seems that Administra- 
tion of SMC, and the Sttident 
Association as well, has be- 
come rather dogmatic in the 
handling of complaints. 

Several weeks ago, I wrote a 
letter voicing my opinion 
about the improper way in 
which the village senator run- 
off elections were conducted. 
This is a serious charge but as 
yet has received no reply from 
either the S.A. or the Admini- 
sttation. Perhaps this is reflec- 
tive of the general feeling of 
apathy toward government 
that is prevalent in our society 

Now it seems that another 
step has been taken in dealing 

with dissenters. Someone has 
been fired because he has 
used the student voice (South- 
em Accent) to make his opin- 
ion known. 

It seems to me that what 
this student did was entirely 
within the limits of accepta- 
bility. After all, he did not 
write a letter to the editor of 
the Chattanooga Times in an 
effort to "tear down" SMC. 
Rather, he spoke out about a 
very real problem that needs 
more attention than it has 
been getting. 

This attitude of ignoring or 
firing dissidents is reminis- 
cent of an earlier American 
President's handling of people 
and problems and it is not 

consistent with values of a 
Christian school or the educa- 
tional philosophy as stated in 
the 1981-82 catalog. 

I am grateful that I am not 
employed by SMC if this is the 
typical response to be ex- 
pected when one expresses a 
difference of opinion. I have 
been as blunt as possible in 
writing this letter in the hope 
that 1 might get a responsible 
reply. If there is none, then I 
will be convinced there is 
definitely a problem to be 
dealt with. 

Stephen R. Morris 

P.S.I'm REAL finicky. 

Dear Editor: 

Fortunately. I am one of 
those lucky people who is 
taking secretarial courses. By 
doing this, I can use the 
typewriters in Lynn Wood 
Hall. But— woe is me if I 
should happen to need to type 
something on a Sunday, Mon- 
day or Wednesday night 
(when the typing lab is 
closed). If I do. I have to fight 
with one of those i 

the library basement. 

After waiting a half an hour 
to get a typewriter (because 
halfofthem aren't working), it 
takes me twice as long to type 
whatever I'm typing because 
of the poor condition the 
"working" typewriters are in. 

My purpose in writing this 
isn't just to gripe. I know there 
are many others who have this 
problem, too. They're in the 
library right now. 

Why can't a school that just 
added that beautiful fine arts 
complex put forth a few 
dollars so that we can have 
decent typewriters to type 
presentable papers on? I know 
those typewriters get a lot of 
wear and tear, but the ones 
down there are very old model 
IBM's. Can something be 
done about them?

4/SOUTHERN ACCENT/November 5, 1981 


Student senate continues 

The second SA Senate 
meeting witnessed several 
working goals being voted in 
by the Student Senate. A 
finance committee, a judiciary 
committee, an elections com- 
mittee, a phone committee, 
and a "jeans" committee 
were voted in and accepted. 

Senator Jim Walson and 
Senator Ken Rozell analyzed 
the phone problems in their 
reports on the centrex system 
here at SMC. The phone 
committee, consisting of Sena- 
tors Watson. Rozell, Les Mat- 
thewson. Ken Bradley and 
Richard Fischer will be inves- 
tigating possibilities for ex- 
pansion of the present system, 
which has a maximum capaci- 
ty of 42 centrex numbers 
talking to 42 other centrex 
numbers at once, or the 
purchase of another internal 
system for the college. 

An elections committee in- 
cluding Senators Sylvia Solis, 
Fischer, and Doug Gates will 
be overseeing all election pro- 
cedures for SA officers for the 
1982-83 school year. These 

elections will be held in Feb- 

The SA finance committee 
will give observations and 
suggestions concerning how 
best to use the SA budget for 
the present school year. The 
committee includes Senators 
Rhonda Champion, Matthew- 
son, William Dubois and Bill 

Suggestions and appraisals 
concerning appropriateness 
and relevancy of SA Senate 
decisions will be prepared by a 
judiciary committee, consis- 
ting of non-senate students: 
Frank Roman, Lucia Gilkes, Al 
Cain, and Sondra Torkelson. 

SA Senators will be ascer- 
taining the majority attitudes 
of their precincts concerning 
jeans being allowed during 
classes and in the cafeteria 
here at SMC. A committee 
including Senators Amanda 
Briggs, Trissa Taylor and SA 
Vice-president Michelle Buch 
will summarize the senators' 
findings and give a report

Dear Hope; 

Has SMC changed its jewel- 
ry policy? If not, why are so 
many girls being allowed to 
wear rings (nof including wed- 
ding bands), necklaces and 
earrings? The earrings are 
what bother mc the most. Do 
the deans just not see it, or do 
they see it but not try to do 
something about it? 

Questioning Christian 

Dear Questioning. 
The poli 

wearing of non-functional 
jewelry have remained un- 
changed ever since the begin- 
ning of SMC. There are those 
who have and will continue to 
bend the rules. 

Those who wear jewelry 
excessively will, of course, be 
reprimanded: but it is hard to 
play "watch dog" for hun- 
dreds vf students. 

This in no way condones the 
wearing of jewelry, but the 
students here in college are 
big boys and girls now and 
should have learned to exer- 
cise their conscience as far as 

The youthful members of 
the Danish Gymnasitc Team 
danced and pranced their 
ways into the hearts of those 
present at their performance 
Thursday, October 29. The 
Physical Education Center of 
Southern Missionary College 
was filled with students and 
other members of the College- 
dale community as the team 
displayed various moves of 
strength, balance and agility 
through their dance and tum- 
bling routines. 

The gym team left Denmark 

for their annual American tour 
October 16 and will complete 
it on November 14 after stops 
in some seven states. Team 
members belong to private 
sports clubs in Denmark and 
have paid their own ways to 
America. Coaches Karin and 
Martin Damgaard accompan- 
ied the team on the tour. 

The program consisted of 
the boys performing various 
vaults and tumbling exercises, 
at times in rapid succession, 
which had some spectators on 
the edges of their seats. 

The girls engaged them- 
selves in different dance 
movements, varying from the 
contemporary to ballet. 

The two teams also com- 
bined their talents in the lively 
performance of some tradi- 
tional Danish folk dances. 

The lively music and attrac- 
tive athletes left both male 
and female students with 
memories of more than just 
the performance, but the per- 
formers as well.

Dear Hope, 

I've had a problem with 
masturbation since 1 was a 
freshman in high school. I've 
tried to stop, but I always slip. 

Even prayer doesn't help. 1 
just continue. And 1 know 
many guys in the dorm do it. 
What should we do? 

Wish I could stop 

that engaging in this evil vice 
will cause " absentminded- 
ness. " "headaches. " "easy 
irritation." "dizziness," and 
"tired feelings in the morn- 
ing," along with many other 
self-degrading effects. 

Which view you decide to 
choose is up to you. God will 
help you if you feel as though 
you have a problem and want 
to overcome it. Continue to 
pray each day. 

Also, there are some excel- 

lent books on overcoming "sin 
problems" that have been 
written, such as Help Lord, 1 
Blew It Again by Mike Jones. 
A daily devotional life ts 
also necessary, for it is only 
Jesus' strength that can help 

If you continue to feel guilty 
and sinful and still cannot 
stop, perhaps you should con- 
sult a Christian psychologic'- 

Good Luck. 

Dear Wish You Could Stop, 

You along with many others 
are involved in masturbation. 
In order to stop this habit, vou 
have to be thoroughly con- 
vinced that this sort of behav- 

It has not been thoroughly 
determined if masturbation is 
wrong or not. You will have to 
decide for yourself after look- 
ing at the following two views 
on the subject. 

I] According to modem 
research, masturbation does 
not cause mental illness, phy- 
sical weakness, or any type of 
disease or death, and is con- 
sidered normal behavior.

Booth shares Mark 

An October 30, Friday eve- 
ning crowd of over two- 
Ihousand packed into the Col- 
tegedale Seventh-day Adven- 
tist Church to witness actor 
Eric Booth present the solo 
performance of Si. Mark's 

Using only a table and three 
chairs for props, the casually 
dressed Booth recited the 
complete book of Mark from 
memory. "We want to keep all 
of the audience's attention- 
right on the words of ths story 
and not allow it to be diverted 
by any type of theatrical 
gimmickry," says the young 

The one-man show was 
originally created and per- 
formed by Alec McCowen, a 
well-known British actor. 
When McCowen decided to 
entrust his work to a younger 
actor, more than 500 actors 
"■ere auditioned for the role 
before Booth was chosen.

The standing ovation which 
greeted the performance re- 
flected audience enthusiasm. 

"He made it sound like you 
were there," remarks Kari 
Jennett, a freshman from 
North Carolina. "It even 
seemed as if he was speaking 
in modem day language." 
Booth attributes the fact that 
his King James' words 
"sound like everyday speech" 
to his large classical acting 
experience early in his career. 

The 1978 winner of the New 
Jersey Drama Critics Best 
Actor Award acknowledges 
that he's been well received 
everywhere he goes, although 
he takes little credit for him- 
self. Instead, he points to his 
material— the second book of 
the New Testament.

An eye for an eye: is capital punishment just? 


The "eye for an eye" law 
was a great improvement over 
the prevailing situation when 
it was given; when a person 
put out someone's eye 
accidentally or otherwise, he 
was likely to get killed for 

The only way something 
could happen to the avenger 
was for a cycle of vengeance (a 
feud) to start; now with the 
new law only an eye could be 
taken for an eye. 

Soon the legal conscious- 
ness was improved further by 
a simple restatement, "The 
value of an eye for an eye." 

The paying of financial com- 
pensation for a ruined eye 
does not restore the eye but 
does make up for lost days of 
work and fees for nursing 
care, plus enough extra to 
provide a comfortable diver- 
sion and a sense of orderly 
support in society. 

The paying of a fine also 
tends to induce a sense of 
responsibility in the offender 
and in others who hear of it. 

This increased sense of 
responsibility (carefulness) is 
similar to that created by 
threat of death or mutilation, 
and this without society's 
having to shoulder a death or a 
second ruined eye. 

This is an example of the 
Scriptural attempt to replace 
the largely unredemptive des- 
truction brought by vengeance 
with the constructive 

principles of material compen- 
sation for injuries repayment- 
plus for stolen goods, rectifi- 
cation by public confession — 
plus fines for untoward acts, 
indentured servitude for bank- 
ruptcy, and having to walk in 
the shoes of the wronged party 

for a while. 

These principles were to be 
supplimented by the also- 
constructive principles of 
pardon granting on the one 
hand and of exile or even of 
pragmatic elimination (execu- 
tion) on the other. 

All these are legal provi- 
sions for the good of society 
and not demands for a society, 
to exist and behave for the 
good of a legal system, (inci- 
dentally, nowhere in Scripture 
is torture of any kind, whether 
by mutilation or imprison- 
ment, condoned.) 

The Scriptures do demand 
execution for malicious man- 
slaughter, for kidnapping, and 
for polluting sex with violence. 

Execution is also presented 
as a legal option for treason, 
for extreme breach of 
marriage contract , and for 
extreme wastefulness and 

In none of these instances 
does execution teach these 
offenders a lesson; they learn 
nothing by it! 

Neither is the damage un- 
done; that is not possible. 

Execution merely 
continuing threat to society— 
both the possibility of criminal 
recurrence, and the possibility 
of others in society modeling 
their actions from those of the 

Execution, then, is approp- 
riate only as a pragmatic move 
to control and not as an 
attempt "to make something 
right" for the sake of some 
legal system. 

The same principle of prag- 
matic elimination should also 
be expressed in such tech- 
nological and legal innova- 
tions as abortion, legislated 
sterilization, socio-economic 
means of population control 
and euthanasia. 

Traditional forms of 
Judaism and Christianity are 
against the principle of prag- 
matic elimination, because 
they tend to subscribe to the 
unhelpful notion that the good 
of society must be subservient 
to the good of an absolute 
legal system whose existence 
is independent and above 

In Judaism this absurdity, 

combined with belief ^ 

sacredness of human life in a 
legal sense and in the absolute 
sovereignty of God over life 
and death, went to the ex- 
treme of producing de facto 
prohibition of execution, 
though lip service was still 
paid to those portions of 
Scripture which advocate exe- 

In Christianity this 
went to the extreme of pro- 
ducing the belief that the 
pardoning of any harmful act 
was only possible when a 
vicarious atonement had satis- 
fied the legal system. 

Especially under present 
world conditions of crime 
waves and burgeoning popula- 
tion, it is imperative that these 
sacred cows be eliminated, 
lest the societies who guard 
them be eliminated by crime, 
hatred, overcrowding, famine 
plague, and war. 

Any law not for the good of 
society is without justification. 
In each individual case in 
which pragmatic elimination 
seems to be an option, the 
good of society must be the 
guiding principle. 


I don't believe in capital 
punishment for five reasons. 

First, capital punishment's 
legality would leave the pos- 
sibility of an innocent defen- 
dant's being killed. Due to the 
humanness of judges and 
juries, circumstantial evidence 
may, in very rare cases, 
condemn an innocent party to 

And that possibility, remote 
though it may be, should be a 
very sobering thought to en- 
forcers of such crime preven- 

punishment of what we're 
punishing for. 

{To clarify the above reason: 
self-defense or accident would 
certainly be granted a more 
lenient consequence than a 
involving a psychopathic

Second — a different slant on 
the first reason — capital pun- 
ishment may, due to a faulty 
judgement, condemn 
who had killed somebody

results (i.e., the murderer 
wouldn't murder anymore) 
could never be measured or 

An argument for a preven- 
tion of subsequent murders by 
others through making an

would be possible, but I prefer 
to leave scapegoating to God 
and the old covenant. 

Fourth, we cannot escape 
the simple fact that capital 
punishment is murder. 

Fifth, certainly degrees of 
murder would need to be 
established by faulty human 
lawmakers; accident, self- 
defense, unintentional, pre- 
meditated, insanity-induced, 
conspiracy ad mfinitiim. 

Also, degrees of murderer, 
morally, would seem to be 
necessary, such as "likely

(psychopath)" "will change 
with therapy," etc. Sound 
ridiculous? It does to me too. 
But not nearly so ridiculous as 
an all-inclusive, "eye for a"

"Go to the ant, thou sluggard; 
consider her ways, and be 

Slowly the golden-haired 
beetle makes her way across a 
field in search of a home to lay 
),er young. She knows it is 
important to And a favorable 
environment where food is 
plentiful. Just ahead she no- 
tices a long line of ants moving 
i their way back to the colony. 
Quickly she joins the proces- 
sion and follows them to their 
underground city. 
The ants don't notice her at 
I first because they are busily 
I working for the good of the 
Icolony. Some are caring for 
I the eggs in the nursery. 
I Others are searching for food 
I above ground. Still others are 
I planting and harvesting 
1 "crops" in the underground 
J "pastures". The beetle re- 
I mains unnoticed until the ants 
laccidently brush against her 
land taste the sweet liquid that 
she is excreting. 
Once they taste of this 

delicious secretion the colony 
begins to die. The ants start to 
neglect their duties and serve 
the beetle. They do anything 
for her as long as they 
continue to receive her 
sweets. Soon the whole colony 
is serving the intruder and the 
queen ant — the life of the 
colony— is forgotten. It is only 
a matter of time until she is 

When the golden-haired 
beetle lays her eggs, the 
addicted servants take care of 
them. When the beetle eggs 
hatch, they are fed ant eggs to 
keep them alive. The end of 
the colony is near. 

The final act is when the 
ants begin to kill each other as 
food for the beetles in order to 
receive what their passions 
desire. Soon the colony is dead 
and the beetles move on. 

Ants have long been point- 
ed to as an example of 
industrious, organized and 
hardworking insects. Proverbs 
points to them as an illustra- 

tion for the slothful and lazy 
but all can learn from them. In 
addition to their good points, 
we can also learn from the 
ants' weaknesses. Even they 
can be deceived when they 
drop their guard. 

The applications to us re- 
garding the spiritual world are 
evident. Though we may be 
diligent workers for the Lord, 
we must always be on our 
guard against the temptations 
of the devil. 

As the beetle entered the 
ant colony and gave them the 
deadly, delicious liquid they 
loved, so Satan can wiley come 
to each of us and offer the 
sweetest tasting things of the 
world. But as with the ant 
colony, the pleasures are only 
for a season and brings in the 
end, death. 

The author of Proverbs 
bids, "Go to the ant, . .

Angels to pin dance 


How many angels can dance 
on the head of a pin? The 
answer to this question may 
be in the making. 

In 1970 Edward Wolf etched 
100,000 angels on the head of 
a pin. Each of the angels was 
wearing a halo filled with gold 

In the field of microelectro- 
nics, recent research has dis- 
covered a way of manipulating 
single atoms. This technique, 
known as molecular-beam epi- 

taxy, can shoot a stream of 
molecules at a surface; by 
opening and closing the shut- 
ters on the beam, scientists 
can deposit layers as thin as a 
single atom on their target. 

With this new discovery the 
question may again be raised 
as to how many angels can 
dance on the head of a pin.

Golf tips for the pros 

The best tip 1 
give anyone about golf without 
a doubl would be: 


Golf is the hardest, most 
frustrating, humiliating, time 
consuming, expensive game 
I've ever tried to play. Why 
anybody with an IQ over 27 
would subject themselves to 
the self torture and mental 
anguish is beyond me. But if 
you choose to ignore my most 
important tip, read on. 

Most golf instructors en- 
courage their students to con- 
centrate on basic funda- 
mentals as they learn to play 

1 . The Grip 

•The golf club should be 
held "tension free." If you put 
a strangle hold on the club, 
the arms become tense and 
the effect will be a jerky, non- 
flowing swing. 

♦Hold the club primarily 
with the last three fingers of 
the left hand and the first 
. three fingers of the right. 
P *When you have taken your 
grip, 2 '/i knuckles should 
show on your left hand and the 
thumb-forefinger "V" on the 
right hand should be poinfing 
to the inside of your right 

2. Alignment 

♦ Shoulders, hips and feet 
should be lined up squarely to 
the ball. Many beginning 
golfers align their feet just 

by Ted Ev; 

fine but their hips are slightly 
left of the target line and their 
shoulders arc further left. 

Correct ball position can be 
a very influencing aspect of 
correcting this problem. 

Beginning golfers should 
have a golf instructor check 
their alignment. 

3. Posture 

•Knees and waist should 
both have the proper amount 
of flex. If a person has too 
much flex in one knee, it will 
usually result in too little flex 
in the other. 

•The knees should be 
slightly flexed with the waist 
flexed just enough so that 
the arms hang naturally to the 
proper grip position of the 
club. This position should be 
straight down from the eyes or 
even a little back toward the 

(Now that you've got your 
grip, alignment and posture in 
correct position, you are ready 
to swing the club.) 

4. Rhythm 

•The speed of the swing 
(tempo) is not nearly as impor- 
tant as is the rhythm of the 
swing.The two key ingredients 
stressed by most experts are 
having a smooth, unhurried 
transition at the to^ from back 
swing to down swing and 
have a one-piece take away. 

•This means let the 
shoulders, arms and hands all 
move the club away from the 
ball at the same time. The 

upper body leads on the back 
swing while the lower body 
leads in the transition to the 
down swing. 

♦Rememberl You take the 
club away. Do not be tempted 
to pick the club up at any time 
on the back swing. 

5. Balance 

•Golf is properly played 
from the inside of the feet 
throughout the swing until 
after the ball has been con- 

At this point the weight 
shifts to the outside of the left 
foot. At address, your weight 
should be equally distributed 
on the insides of both feet. 

At the top of the back 
swing, the weight should be 
on the inside-middle of the 
right foot. The weight shift 
should never be on the outside 
of the left foot. This would 
indicate that the golfer is 

Use the inside of the right 
leg and foot as a pivot point for 
the swing. 

•The left heel triggers the 
down swing and the weight 
shift from the inside of the 
right foot to the outside of the 

•Do not allow the left foot to 
spin out, and make sure when 
you finish the swing your 
weight is on the outside of 
your left foot and your rieht

The sign of an intelligent

like to quote from John Stuart

of silencing the expression of

n effort to supplement 
tuition income and improve 
Ithe facilities of Southern Mis- 
sionary College, the office of 
-eiopment is working to 
taise both corporate and pri- 
[vate funds. 

Dr. Jack McCIarty, Director 
t)f Development, explains that 
phere are several reasons for 
Soliciting funds. First, scholar- 
phip funds are organized as a 
Vay of helping students defray 
educational costs. "Many 
" McCIarty says, "a 
Student will receive some 
inancial assistance without 
1 realizing it came from a 
Ischolarship fund. It's just all 
■ pari of a financial package."

mum level of scholarship

|about a half million dollars, 
ies the interest as the 
I actual financial funding. 

second use for the doiia- 
s collected by the develop- 
ment office is that of improv- 

ing campus facilities. Several 
programs are now listed as 
potential recipients. These 
include renovating the old 
music building for use by 
another department, construc- 
tion of the Fine Arts complex, 
construction of an outside 
entrance to the cafeteria and 
renovation of the Campus 

McCIarty explains that the 
use of the f^nds depends 
largely on donor preference. 
"A corporation must be con- 
vinced of the uniqueness of 
the program we wish to up- 
grade." he says. Funds then 
given will be appropriated for 
the particular program which 

Why do companies give 
anything in the first place? It's 
not completely a case of Mr. 
Nice Guy. Law dictates that 
corporations give a designated 
amount to charities each year. 
Although some get around 
this law, there are still many 
potential grants to seek. 

One problem that McCIarty 
struggles with is explaining 
the name "Missionary" to 
potenfial donors. Common 
questions regarding the name 
are "Are you accredited?' ' 
or "Are you a Bible college?" 

Private donations include 
those received fi-om the 
annual fund appeal to 
Southern Union constituents. 
This year about 35,000 letters 
were mailed. In addition, 
alumni outside the Union have 
been contacted for assistance.

of Development for one and a 
half years. Prior to that, he 
was band director of the 
college for seven years.

Deans respond helpfully 


A plan is in progress that 
will, according to results so 
far, successfully eradicate the 
roach epidemic in Talge Hall. 
Aher contacting several pro- 
fessional exterminators such 
Orkin the deans learned 
that roaches are extremely 
difficult to control because it is 
almost impossible to destroy 

their eggs while killing the 
creatures, and — obviously to 
any biology major— more 
roaches come from eggs. 

Undaunted. Ted Evans, 
chairman, dean of men, con- 
tacted Charles Lacey, 
grounds, about other possible 
solutions to the dorm roach 
problem. Lacey ordered a 

supply of Baygon, a 2% bait 
insecticide, manufactured by 
Mobay Chemical Corporation 
in Kansas City, Missouri. 

Evans experimented with 
about half as much of the 
chemical as is presently being 
put in each dorm room, in his 
apartment, and reported a 

story similar to 
Isaiah's in chapter 37 verse 
36, last pari. 

So now Dean Evans, Dean 
Ron Qualley, Dean Reed 
Christman, and Dean Matt 
Nafie are drilling 34 holes in 
each room— 8 holes in every 
closet, 4 holes under each 
bureau, 5 holes in each side of 
the sink— and depositing the 
Baygon— which is a very 
potent insecticide. 

Qualley said that although 
the chemical seems to work 
nicely. 3 to 4 applications per 
semester may be necessary to 
keep the roaches under con- 
trol. An experimental plan will 
supply the RAs with some 
Baygon, and they will exter- 
minate in the holes already 
supplied by the deans as often 
as necessary in their respec- 
tive hall. 

Hopefully for all concerned, 
the deans' helpful efforts will 
prove ultimately successful. 
Qualley reported the deans 
hope to finish their task 
throughout the dorm by 
Thanksgiving Break. Good 


The Board of Directors of 
the American Psychological 
Association (APA) recently 
elected Dr. Gerald Colvin to 
membership in the APA, 
effective January 1. 1982. 
Colvin came to SMC in 1972 as 
chairman of the old Behavioral 
Sciences department, in 1979 
assumed leadership of the 
interim Behavioral and Family 
Sciences division, and in 1980 
began managing the division 
of Education and Human 

As a bona fide member of 
the APA, Colvin is required to 
respect the dignity and worth 
, of each person, while striving 
for the preservation and pro- 
tection of all fundamental 
human rights. 

"While expecting for my- 
self freedom of inquiry and 
communication," says Colvin, 
"I also accept the responsi- 
bility this freedom requires: 
competence, objectivity in the 
application of skills, and con- 
cern for the best interests of 
clients, colleagues, students, 
research participants, and

The Student Association at SMC is generally viewed as a form unison, 

of coordination for publications, programs and a few studen 

services. Student government is restricted to a tew well 
meaning students who make up the senate, a figurehead more 
than a working political power. 

Unsuspecting students may perhaps «eel that their SA dues

all of these student 

they deem necessary in order to maintain 

To say that this year's advisers use 
government defeating tools would be absurd. I have rarely 
such a group of students and faculty working together so well as 
this year's SA officers and their advisers. 

The fact remains, however, that there is no form of student 
government at SMC. As long as the final power behind the SA is 
not a part of the SA itself, then we may indeed confess that the 
only purpose this association has is to coordinate activities, 
something that could probably be done with fewer officers and 
less expense. 

I am not so naive as to suggest that the students be allowed to 
rule themselves. 1 do maintain, though, that it is useless to even 
discuss topics of interest unless we can do away with the single 
person veto power— veto power that can't even be overruled. 

I suggest that committees be established to be the deciding 
factor in a students versus adviser standoff. A committee made 
up of both students and faculty would at least leave room for a 
sensible bargaining session. 

No ideal, to be sure. But it's a start. We can be thankful that 
the branches of the Student Association have not been faced 
with vetoes, censorship or stifled plans. Someday almost 
inevitably, there is likely to be an adviser who turns out to be

The last time God granted 
unconditional mercy to a mur- 
derer was to Cain, and it is 
interesting to note that after 
the flood. God gives a paren- 
thetical comment in Genesis 
9:6 about the need for capital 
punishment in the case of 

That's an interesting place 
to put it. especially when 
nobody was murdered im- 
mediately after the flood. The 
real reason, of course, was 
that the flood was necessitated 
by the increase in evil due to 
the lack of any enforcement of 
capital punishment. 

Mr. Brand is also mistaken 
about Harry Orchard. Mr. 
Orchard was convicted when 
he confessed to the crime 
AFTER being converted while 
waiting for trial. As for the 
fear of possibily executing an 
innocent person, I believe 
from my experience in the 

Prison Ministry that judges do 
very weird things when God 
gets involved in the process of 

We've seen judges give 
sentences, or suspend them, 
then a few seconds later shake 
their heads with a queer look 
on their face and wonder why 
in the world they gave that 
particular decision. Of course, 
I would prefer a Christian 
Judge who was in better touch 
with the Diety, and would 
have very few worries about 
the perversion of justice with a 
praying Judiciary. Unfortuna- 
tely, the whole mind set of our 
church is oriented against 
involvement with government 
to that extent, so we shouldn't 
complain about what we get 
out of the government. 

However, Mr. Habenicht's 
principle of the subservience 
of the individual for the good 
of society is a far more 
dangerous idea than he 
thinks. So much so, that I am 

inclined to believe that he has 
not thought the ramifications 
of that principle through. 

"Pragmatic Elimination," 
on what grounds or basis? 
Who will be the undesire- 
ables? Today it is the murder- 
er and the unborn. Tomorrow 
the elderly. Yesterday the 
Jews and Christians. For too 
long a time, everyone accep- 
ted the idea of the subservi- 
ence of the individual for the 
good of society, and only 
differed on who was to be 
subservient (or eliminated). 

The genius of the Judaeo- 
Christian ethic is the rejection 
of the principle outright, and 
the assertion that both socie- 
ties and individuals are all 
under Law. Come come, in a 
world dominated by physical 
laws of an absolute nature, 
should the relationships be- 
tween individuals (which com- 
prises society) be exempt? 
Nay, rather, all laws, physical 
and moral, result from exist- 

dominated by 
an Omnipresent God, whose 
flesh and bones are laws and 

The assertion that the only 
absolute laws are physical in 
nature is merely due to our 
inability to presently explore 
the realm of moral law with 
the same ease with which we 
can explore the physical 
realm. Granted, this may 
sound like an argument from 
ignorance, but let me ask this. 
Why are societies who value 
human life generally more 
prosperous than the ones who 
place individuals under the 
domination of Society (who- 
ever that is)? 

For those who may wish to 
explore this area a bit further, 
I wholeheartedly recommend 
"The Abolition Of Man" by 
C.S. lewis, and "How Should 
We Then Live?" by Francis 

Gerald Owens 
Professor of Computer Science 

as much as possible. 

What about our entertain- 
ment? Movies. TV, books, 
music; what's the main theme 
here? Even if you only watch 
the best of programs, you 
can't get away from the 
commercials in which sex or 
sensual ideas are put into your 
unsuspecting mind. Romantic 
novels, movies and many 
other such things create in the 
mind an over-powering desire 
for — dare I say — love? 

Sometime ago 1 wrote a 
letter, in the school paper 

trying to persuade the girls to 
change from the way that they 
have been dressing to a more 
modest way. Many could not 
seem to understand what need 
there was for a change. Can 
you see now? Listen, you girls 
are attractive enough when 
you dress decently, but when 
you cut your dress open, or 
wear other clothes that are 
unbuttoned or too tight, you 


You men are not doing so 
well either. Do you think that 

the women are made of stone? 
Why are your pants so tight? 
Why do you go about scantily 
clothed? If the truth were 
known, we would find that 
there is as much self-abuse in 
the women's dorm as in the 
men's! Women aren't exempt 
from passion. 

If you want to be free from 
this sin; if you want to help 
others (o be free from this sin; 
then set a good example. Ask 
the managers of the stores in 
which you shop (i.e. VM) to 
clean up some of the 

stumbling blocks. Don't dress 
in any kind of sensual manner. 
Stay away from TV, rock 
music, etc. Stay away from 
rich food; ask the school 
cafeteria to remove such items 
from the shelves. After all, 
this is supposed to be an 
Adventist instution; surely 
they wouldn't want to place 
any hurtful item before a weak 
brother or sister!? And above 
all, pray, for yourself and for 
others. Steven J. Speece

Dating at SMC: do guys ask enough? 

Speaking from a personal 
viewpoint, I believe that 1 and 
a lot of my friends (yes, those 
on B wing) have asked out an 
enonnous number of women. 
Yes, we've asked and yes, 
we've had a good time. But 
there are some things that 
bother me, i.e. the following 

I, I'm sorry. 1 don't go out 
with guys who ask as late as 

Thursday night. 

2. I would, but 1 don t 
believe in premarital dating. 

3 I'm sorry, I've already 
got plans (You see them later 
at Vespers with the giris.) 

4. Any other excuse that 
doesn't hold water. 

I do understand there is a 
problem with some gentlemen 
not asking the young ladies, 
but as far as me and my 
friends— Wc refiise to accept 
the blame. If the young ladies 
would like more social life so 
much that they are disturbed 
about not going out, they 
can ask, and there are ac- 
ceptable ways: 

1, Plan a party with giris 
asking guys. 

2. Just be open and honest 
and ask a young gentleman 
out; if he's dull and boring, 
don't ask him out again. 

In this day and age women 

have been screaming for equal 
rights, equal pay, and equal 
treatment. Then why don t 
some of those women upset 
about the situation take on 
equal responsibility for the 
problem of not dating? Ves- 
pers is just as>ec for gents to 
ask ladies as it is for ladies to 
ask young gents. 

Also, don't be afraid to 
spend a little money on them. 

The guys I know sure haven't 
been afraid to spend a little 
cash. Furthermore, some gen- 
tlemen have been asked out 
and not one that 1 know of has 
said NO, or that he was busy 
with the boysl 

Don't get me wrong; the 
guys have their share of the 
blame and may not have done 
their best. If this be the 
case— I ask that the young 

men of Talee take on a little 
more God-given iniative, get 
organized, and struggle past 
those nerves and ask out 
Tuesday evenings for Satur- 
day night or whenever, so 
we'll eliminate any excuses 
and help alleviate a problem. 

Have a great weekend; 
I plan on having a good one! 

every guy at Southern Mis- 
sionary College, then why are 
;ariy 75 percent of the 
omen dateless? 
Dating has become a very 
sophisticated game to which 
strict rules are applied. What 
has happened to those fun get- 
togethers? Most guys have the 
misconception that every girl 
wants to be taken to a very 
expensive restaurant and then 
to a concert or play. While this 
is nice every once in awhile, 
there are many activities that 
are not as expensive and just 
enjoyable. The 

approximately two giris for dating is to get to know 

someone better and to have 
fun, not to get a free meal 
and/or a free ride. 

The school sponsors many 
activities that could be lots of 
fun. How about asking some- 
one to go ice skating at the 
Choo-choo this next Sunday? 
Transportation, another major 
excuses, is provided for these 
type of activities. During the 
Christmas season, there are 
many school sponsored activi- 
ties both on and off campus 
which are suitable for dating, 
such as the Christmas tree 
lighting and the Messiah con- 

Another major obstacle, es- 
pecially for the guys who seem 
to do all the asking, is getting 
up enough courage. Although 
girls complain that guys never 
ask them, many of them don't 
realize how hard it is. On the 
other hand girls are taking the 
initiative and asking guys out, 
but they in turn are afraid that 
their motives will be miscon- 
strued. No matter who does 
the asking, they should realize 

that if they are turned down, it 
is not necessarily because of 
any personal reason^their in- 
tention just might have other 

Others have the idea that if 
they go out with a less-than- 
perfect-specimen they are de- 
grading themselves. Not 
everyone can be a Bo Derek or 
a Christopher Reeve (i.e. 
"10," "Superman"). Many 
times a person has many 
hidden assets that can be 
discovered only by being to- 
gether. How many times have 
you been surprised to find out 
that the person you least 
expected has the most hilar- 
ious sense of humor? There is 
more to people than what 
meets the eye. 

One needs to keep 
that a date doesn't mean a 
commitment for life or a 
license to do everything. Guys 
complain that girls expect a 
serious relationship after one 
date, while girls think that the 
guys are out to get sex from 
them. While this type of 

1 mind 

thinking may be true for a 
few people, it is not true for 

Another misconception is 
that dates are just for "you 
and me" only. However, 
looking back, most of us 
remember the best times as 
being those with a group. 
Remember that Sabbath after- 
noon when everyone went on a 
picnic to Red Clay? Or that 
Saturday night when 30 kids 
piled into one van and had 
Chinese fire drills on the way 
to Taco Bell? Group dates take 
the pressure off that "first 
date" while proving a re- 
laxed aTmnsnherp for getting 
to know someone. 

Of course, there are the 
most common and general 
excuses. I'm sure that other 
people have different excuses 
that they consider valid. But 
then again others are so lazy 
that they will latch on to any 
excuse not to ask. But with > 
little insight students at SMI 
could have a lot more fun H 
they asked someone out.

surprised me because 
s the same Bible teach- 
r who had taught me about 
^ love for man. Obvious- 
e had gathered different 
i ideas from the same class 
[ lectures. But the real shock 
I came from a response inter- 
jected by a lady on the front 
I row. Taking only the word of 
. the Sabbath School teacher, 
she spit out the reply, "That 
teacher ought to be fired!" 

I Scene II 

A friend of mine has been 
helping in a church in this 
I conference and he decided to 
try a creative approach to the 
worship service. He did two 
things that were different. 

The first was to have the 
congregation practice the 
hymn for the morning because 
it was one that was unfamiliar. 
' Secondly, after the close of his 
message, he stayed at the 
front of the church and min- 
gled with the people instead of 
'he traditional way of walking 

The first is that people can 
view the same person dif- 
ferently. The same action or 
sentence can be interpreted in 
about as many ways as the 
number that see or hear it. 
Treat others as you would like 
to be treated. Before you start 
to judge an action or work. 

Another sad observation is 
the name calling or labeling 
that is going on. It seems 
today that a "Fordite", 
"Reaite". or any other 
"heretic-ite" is someone who 
disagrees with what YOU 
believe. Just because what is 
said doesn't add up to what 
you have understood doesn't 
neces^aiily mean that person 
is a heretic. 

Don't misunderstand me. 
Sin should be called by its 
right name, but let's make 
sure of what we are labeling. 
A final observation is that 
there seems to be an attitude 
of "Guilty until proven in- 
nocent" around. Some mem- 
bers are showing the attitude 
of Americans during the 
McCarthy era.

The professor involved, he 
added, was voted the out- 
standing professor in the for- 
estry school the previous year. 

The first was that they were 
Christians— Christ people. 
The people in Antioch could 
tell who they were because 
they were always talking 
about the man Christ. 

The second characteristic 
was the love they showed for 
one another. The agape love 
was something rarely seen in 
the Roman world and it made 
an impression on them. 

How do people know that 

we are Seventh-day Adventist 
Christians (Christ people)? I 
hope they can recognize us by 
how much we talk about Christ 
and how we show His love to 
people both in and outside of 
the church. 

Remember Paul's counsel: 
"But if you bite and devour 
one another, take care lest you 
be consumed by one anoth- 
er." {Gal. 5:15) 


Snack bar reviewed 

The food excessible to stu- 
dents of Southern Missionary 
College is interesting to say 
the least. With the advent of 
the new snack bar, the 
culinary repertoire available to 
students has been increased. 
Whether or not this is for the 
better remains a matter of 

The menu is unfortunately 
limited to but a few items, 
However, the uniqueness of 
these items leaves them as 
desirable alternatives to the 
other food fares on campus. 
The snack bar's proximity to 
the campus and its later hours 
have made it a pretty popular 
spot at SMC. 

The sizes of the servings are 
average and, in my opinion, a 
little expensive. The exotic 
names given the menu items 
are not quite the indicators of 
exotic food as one might think, 
but are rather just exotic 
names. The falafel is the most 
exotic item and is quite tasty, 
but 1 found the chips with 
avacado dip — especially its 
price— a little hard to swallow. 

What the Campus Kitchen 
does with grease the snack bar 
does with microwaves, and 
somehow that quality of tex- 
ture claimed by both methods 
remains lost. Burger patties 
are little better than thawed 
out and thus are a little tough f 
and dry— but then, what can 

you do to help out the dreaded In summary, the food is fair 

vege-burger? and the selection limited, but 

Though I personally have no the atmosphere and setting of 

complaint about the service, the new snack bar are great,

Exercise motivates 

Is a game of Pac-Man your idea of a stringent workout? Is 
your boy/girl friend calling you kangaroo thighs? Does your 
roommate tell you fat jokes all the time? Well then, do 
something about it. Exercise! 

Don't just laugh at yourself when you look into the mirror. 
Don't claim that you have big bones, either. Excuses get you 
nowhere. Now is the time to get out and jog, or swim, or lift 
weights, or. . . 

Start in the morning. Limber up with the 'ole 1,2.1,2,. . .Then 
try the other eyelash. See how easy it is! Yes, even you can do 

If you find yourself lacking motivation, then I have a sure fire 
way to motivate you. Walk up to any football player or 
mudwrestler and kick them in the knee as hard as you can. If 
you don't run they will pound the weight off of you. If you do run 
they will catch you and pound the weight off of you. 

See how fun being in shape \

Though many of you may 
not realize it, a new and 
frightening power is in control 
of at least pari: of the campus 
here at SMC. 

m serious. This power is 
, tremendous. It has caused 
[ students to leave school(at 
least temporarily), place col- 
, lect calls to their parents, 
faint, scream, throw tele- 
[ phones across the room and 
1 behave in a variety of other 
I bizarre ways. 

i first noticed this strange 
I phenomena after my last class 
I yesterday. I had forgotten to 
I bring something besides my 
class notes to digest, and my 
stomach began protesting. By 
shifting uncomfortably 

through the rest of class, I 
naged to quiet the voices 
I from within until I could 
escape and get something to 

nee the cafeteria and the 
were both quite a ways 
I from where I was. I picked up 
the nearest phone and dialed 
4677. that magical number 
which, when dialed, is sup- 

posed to reveal all the gusta- 
tory treats in store for the 
eater. After it rang several 
times, a voice finally came on 
the line. "For breakfast today 
we will be serving — " 

"But it's one o'clock in the 
aftemonn!" I protested. I was 
about to replace the receiver 
when I noticed the recording 
had stopped. I picked the 
phone back up and listened. 
Two voices were whispering in 
the background. 

"Should I give her dinner's 
menu?" the first one queried. 

"Naw. she hasn't thrown 
the phone across the room yet. 
Give her last nights'— that 
should do it," answered the 

I was flabbergasted. 1 
cleared my throat. Immediat- 
ely, the first voice turned 
monotone and began droning, 
"For supper last night we 

"What is this?" I deman- 
ded. "Hey, I know you guys 
aren't recordings; what's 
going on?" 

Silence. Then, "You tell 

her!" came from voice num- 
ber one. 

"Okay. We aren't employed 
by SMC," began the second 
person. "We work for an 
independent organization near 
here, whose identity we are 
not allowed to reveal. Our job 
is to keep as many people off 
the phones as possible; either 
that, or get them to ruin their 
phones so we can raise the 
rates." He gave a low chuckle. 

"But ma'am, whoever you 
are, I wish you would get off 
the lines— our little switch- 
board here is lighted up like a 
Christmas tree with people 
who are trying to get through. 
And by the way," he contin- 
ued, a warning note creeping 
into his voice. "I would keep 
this under my hat if I were 
you. or you'll get a phone bill 
you'll never forget." 

I thanked him quickly, then 
just before hanging up, I 
asked desperately, "Before 
you go. could you possibly tell 
me what the cafeteria is 
serving for dinner?" 

"Oh. that," he cackled. 

"We don't know, really. We 
have a book of menus and we 
just choose one at random and 
read it. Sometimes we get 
lucky and pick something 
that's really being served." 
His cackles increased as he 
added, "Anyhow, you just 
have a splendid dayl" 

"I'll do that," I grimaced, 
as I restored the phone to its 
original position. Just then, 
one of my friends walked up. 
Do you know what the cafe is 
serving for dinner?" he asked. 

"No, but you can call 4677 
and see." I smiled, and 
walked away.

What do you think of SMC's dating 

Randy Weldemere, junior, auto-body repair. San Diego. CA: It 
carries a lot of potential. Sometimes it's a pressured 
situation— from other guys. But then it seems giris have a 
tendency to take a guy too seriously. If you ask them out once, 
then they expect for you to start a relationship, etc. 

Heather Northcutt, senior, journalism. AUamonte Springs. FL: 

Tim Gamer, sophomore, comp. science/business 4, Tallahas- 
see, FL: I think there's too much pressure on the guys to ask the 
girls out. When a guy does ask a giri out they just play a lot of 
games and you're not sure where you stand. But that shouldn't 
discourage guys from asking giris out. 

KathyLong. senior, elementary ed.. Montgomery. AL: I think it 
has really picked up great this year. 

Lorrie Bums, sophomore

Banquet planned 

The Student Association of 
Southern Missionary College 
is planning a Christmas ban- 
quet to be held on Sunday. 
December 6, in the college 

According to Roger Burke. 
SA President, the banquet will 
be held in place of a first 
semester talent show. A talent 
show will be organized next 
semester as well as a second, 
more formal banquet. 

"We are not stressing flow- 
er buying because this ban- 
quet will be semi-formal— not 
formal," Burke said. At the 
same time, he defined semi- 
formal to be "Sabbath suits" 
for the guys and ' ' nice 
dresses" for the girls. 

The theme of the banquet is 
"Christmas" in conjunction 
with the season and its spirit. 

Several questions have been 
raised as to the cost of this 
year's banquet. The thirteen 
dollar per couple tickets will 
just cover the price the cafe- 
teria is charging for catering 
the event. Funds for decor- 
ations, entertainment and 
miscellaneous expenses will 
have to come out of the Social 
Activities fund. 

Last year's banquet cost 
twelve dollars per couple, 
commented Darrel Starkey, 
who was director of the SA 
banquet last year. The main 
difference, however, was that 
the ticket price covered the 
cost of most of the entertain- 
ment as well as the food. 

Cafeteria charges for the ban^ 
quet were only six or sever 
dollars for each couple— not 
the thirteen being charged 
this time. 

Starkey attributes this to 
last year's method of "Cutting 
comers." "We helped pro- 
vide the labor for the cafe- 
teria," says Starkey. "We 
ended up using less than one 
hundred dollars out of oui 

Director of Food Services, 
Earl Evans, was unavailable 
for comment on the subject. 

Burke informed the Accent 
that the banquet will provide 
live entertainment ,and 
movie. Other insidei soui 
revealed that the njovie wo 
be a 1930s black and white 
entitled. "It's a Wonderful 
Life." starting Jimmy Stew 
art, Donna Reed and Barry 

Tickets can be purchased at 
the Student Center desk. Once 
again, no ID cards cai 
used. President Burke 
phasized that he contacted 
Richard Reiner (Bus! 
Manager) about the possibility 
of putting the charges 
cards for the SA bash, but 
Reiner Insisted that new policy 
dictates this cannot be done. 

In any case, Social Activities 
director Patti Gentry, along 
with other SA officers,

that will hope to pleasf

^on't lide out ikank^ 

As Thanksgiving and its nostalgia approaciies, I Pa"se <» 
nonder the spirit that pervades the atmosphere. Do we, as iMC 
students, have anything to be thankful for? I'm not talking 
about the food on the table, the clothes on the back or the 
religious freedom of this country. 

Rather, can we find anything in the uniqueness of our 
Christian college for which to be thankful? 

When I skip a class, whether for a good reason or not, the 
odds say I will find an uneicused stamped on my eicuse slip. 
It's frustrating, to say the least— especially when you consider 
that many colleges don't even require classes. 

If I've been so busy all week that I'm a little behind m my 
laundry, I sure can't expect any mercy in the cafeteria line when 
I wear a pair of jeans as a substitute. Chances are that 1 won't 
even get caught until I'm halfway through my meal. 

When maU is becoming scarce, I can always rely on good 'ole 
college tidbits. Perhaps it's a letter from the dean questioning 
my absence from church. 

Or maybe someone is informing me that I'd better start going 
to worships — or else. 

Even more original, maybe it's the student finance office 
writing a love letter to tell me that I'd better come sign my 
financial aid papers or I'll find myself sitting without an ID card. 

To quote a well-known cartoon character, "Good Grief!" 

Can we find anything for which to be thankful here at SMC? I 

If it seems that the three Rs of reading, writing and 'rithmetic 
have become the Rs of rules, regulations and ^requirements, 
take a second look. 

We only find ourselves amidst school laws because someone 
does indeed care. The uniqueness of our Christian education 

guarantees that we will not be faced with a lackadaisical 

Perhaps you or I do not agree with every rule or even some 
part of SMC's phUosophies of education. The mere fact that 
there is something to disagree with, however, assures us that 

""^We wXcontinue to be faced with imperfect rulings and some 
less than outstanding decisions, but behind most actions is a 
caring, concerned educator. ... 

So on this Thanksgiving Day, if you begin to feel pessimistic 
about the worth of an education at Southern Missionary 
College, stop and reflect about the hours of painstaking thought 
and prayer that have gone into the rules that are attempting to 
maintain the standards of this institution. Someone cares. 
That's something to be thankful for. 

I have learned to '• 

seek my ; 

happiness by : 

limiting my ; 

desires, rather ■ 

than in ;

Dear Editor: 

(Cordially to Mr. Speece) 

Your letter to "Hope" last 
week finally pushed me into 
writing a response. 1 teach a 
class in this college which 
assists students to think log- 
ically and to use the scientific 
method in problem solving. 
May I recommend the class to 

Your "loose" usage of 
terms is beyond me. Where 
are your definitions for such 
catch-all phrases as "lower 
passions, normal reason, sen- 
sual ideas, causing someone 
to stumble, self abuse, and 
weak brother or sister?" 

Vou do not quote any scien- 
tific evidence to support your 
statements of supposedly fact. 
Instead you advise young peo- 
ple to read Solemn Appeal. 
Not even 50% of this book was 
written by Ellen White. 

Where is the research to 
support your statements con- 
cerning certain types of food 
strengthening lower passions? 
Are all the students and 
faculty who eat the college- 
prepared food walking around 
with overwhelming base pas- 
sions ready at any moment to 
jump the opposite sex? Taco 
Bell and Pizza Hut will now 
have to be off limits for our 
students and faculty so that 
we won't become harmful to 
each other. 


Your statements about the 
advertisements in the V.M. 
and dress on this campus 
really perplex me. Aren't you 
living in this world, Steven? 
Or are you existing in a 4x4 
closet, with no sensory stim- 
ulation? If you are, let me 
predict that in the near future 
you will become delusional 
and hallucinate. (I can back 
that with research). I've shop- 
ped in the V.M. for the last 15 
years and nothing has roused 
my lower passions except the 

Also, the students look won- 
derful. Is it sinful to look 
beautiful or handsome? You'll 
say that I am conditioned to all 
the sinful stimuli that the 
world has to offer. Maybe you 
are right! But hallelujah for 
the conditioning. I've had a 
very happy Christian life so 
far. My dear Christian parents 
allowed me the freedom to 
make my own decisions and 
didn't protect me from the 
realities of life. The Lord 
surely was not protected from 
the "sinful" elements that 
existed when He was on earth. 

Steven, you didn't start this 
controversy. Someone else did 
in the previous Accent, but I 
am concerned with both of 
you. To me. preoccupation 
with sexual matters indicates 
that there is a real problem 

with that individual. You are 
preoccupied with what stim- 
ulates base passions and the 
other person with his sexual 

Both of you need to move 
away from your self absorp- 
tion and focus your attention 
on working for others. Profes- 
sional guidance in assisting 
you to understand the sexual 
role in your life might be 
helpful. If I had a chance to 
know you both, it wouia 
probably become clear tha

problem. There is research

Dear Editor: 

To provide consistency for 
ur past format of article — 
letter of rebuttal — rebuttal to 
the rebuttal— I would like to 
respond to Professor Owens' 

First, I will concede Profes- 
sor Owens' point about Harry 
Orchard. He is right; I was 

Secondly, the same God 
who inspired Genesis 9:6 also 
said, "Vengeance is Mine;/ 
will repay." Another biblical 

imple of lack of enforce- 
ment for capital punishment 
would be Saul who became 
Paul. In our judiciary system, 
Saul was guilty of first-degree 
homicide as an accomplice to 
the stoning of Stephen. 1 
suppose blinding Saul was 
God's form of capital punish- 

And we also have every- 
one's favorite murderer — 
David. But since a biblical 
base could be found for almost 
anvthing (try explaining I 
Peter 3:18-20 or I Corinthians 
15:29 to a Mormon) I won't 
argue that the Bible is against 
capital punishment. 

However, capital punish- 
ment—as a deterrent to crime 
—statistically has fallen flat 
on its face. In Illinois, while 
capital punishment was being 
enforced, there were more 
murders and other major 
crimes per capita than in 
Wisconsin, where capital 
punishment hasn't been en- 
forced for a long time. 

And the possibility that an 
innocent person would be 
condemned to death isn't even 
remote— it's close to 10%. 

Read Carl Menninger's book, 
The Crime of Punishment, for 
more information. 

About societies vs. individ- 
uals, the laws which do exist 
universally and under which 
all societies must dwell do not 
define "the undesirables" in 
terms of life or death and 
therefore, neither should we. 
I agree the individual neces- 
sarily shouldn't be excepted 
for the good of society, but the 
individual would be protected 
if the ultimate good of society 
takes precedence, a point I 
think Professor Owens agrees 

Simply stated, seeking the 
good of society and the good 
of the individual are one and 
the same thing ethically. And 
neither leaves any room for 
capital punishment. 

Jay Brand 

Dear Editor, 

I feel I must respond to 
Robert Smith's affirmative 
answer to the Accent's Cross- 
roads question — "Dating at 
SMC: do the guys ask 

There are several girls resi- 
ding in Thatcher that have 
only been asked out once or 
twice since getting here in 
August. These girls are well- 
dressed, amiable people — 
overlooked by the vast 
majority of Talge residents. 
Unfortunately these are also 
the girls that don't believe in 
asking the guys out. Although 
we're in the minority, there 

are a few girls that don't like 
equal treatment. 

I'm not blaming you, Mr. 
Smith, for the lack of our 
social lives. I realize there's 
only so many girls one guy can 
date. 1 am blaming the guys 
that are so conceited that they 
expect the giris to track them 
down and beg for a date, the 

Gladson IntetvlewBd 

guys (yes, there are some that' 
make plans to spend the 
chapels, prayer meetings, 
vespers and church services 
with the other guysl) that 
forget the opposite sex even 
exists, and the guys that are 
too shy for their own good. 

Personally, I don't believe 
in turning down dates unless I 

have an extremely valid rea- 
son, and then I too postpone 
the date. I realize that dating 
s nerve wracking for those 
nvolved, but nevertheless an 
ntricate part of the fun for 
college students on campuses 
all over the world.

Consultation II unifies

Dr. Jerry Gladson, associate 
professor of religon and del-

from September 30 to October 

Accent: Who attended the 

Gladson: The meeting was 
composed of delegates from 
the Administrative as well as 
Academic sectors of the Ad- 
ventist Church. Delegates 
came from most of the world 
including Australia and Af- 
rica. From SMC were myself, 
Dr. Bennet and Elder Sprin- 
gett, representing the aca- 
demic sector, and Dr. Frank 
Knittle and Dr. Larry Hanson 
representing the administra- 
tive sector.

Accent: What 
of this meeting. 
Gladson: Since the Glacier 
View meeting dealing with Dr. 
Desmond Ford, there has 
been misunderstanding and a 
lack of communication be- 
tween the Academic and Ad- 
ministrative sectors of the 
church. The relationship had 
deteriorated considerably. 

Consultation II was then 
called by Elder Neil Wilson 
(Consultation 1 was connected 
with the Ford meeting) who 
was urged to do so by people 
in the Academic community. 
Rumors have been flying 
everywhere-many directed 
at SMC-and at this meeting 
efforts were made to stop the 
rumor spreading. 

Accent: How wgs the meeting 

Gladson: The almost 200 del- 
egates were divided into 10 
committees. The committees 
convened each day after a 
devotion and then worked all 
day on the various issues. No 
formal presentations were 
given, but a plenary session 
was held in the late afternoon 
where committees reported 
their conclusions. Each day a 
formal written conclusion had 
to be submitted by each 

Accent: What were the issues 

Gladson: Firstly, academic 
freedom in the church. Sec- 
ondly, pluralism (i.e. how 
many different viewpoints will 
be permitted) and thirdly, the 
use of modern methods of 
biblical study by SDA scho- 
lars. This was concerned with 
the historical critical method 
of the study of scripture. 

Accent: Was the meeting a

away feeling that better lines 
of communication had been

Accent: Will any policy

Gladson: Many of the deci- 
sions made will have to be 
further studied before any 
policy change will take place. 

Accent: Will there be further 

Gladson: Yes, although no 
official dates have been set. 
The delegates felt that these 
meetings should be held on a 
regular basis.

Consultation 11 — a clearing of 
the atmosphere — represents a 
turning point in the present

Military service: should SDA^s enlist? 


by Steve DIckerholf 
I do not see anything wrong 
with an Adventist joining the 
army. We have to realize that 
this world is not what God 
wanted it to be. This corrupted 
world has practical problems 
that need practical solutions. 
Marriage is an institution 
established by God, but sin 
created problems for it. Jesus 
told us that married couples 
should never divorce. But, 
because He realized the prob- 
lem of adultery, brought about 
by sin. He gave us an out in 
this instance. 

We should apply this prin- 
ciple of accommodating the 
perfect ways of God with the 
problem of sin to other every- 
day questions. War is the 
result of sin and armies are 
the result or war. 

Sure, killing is not "good," 
but in some cases it may be 
"right." God is not as con- 

cerned with what we do as 
with the motive behind our 

I could use the example of 
Israel, in the Old Testament, 
fighting and killing, but I 
always get the ole*. "Well, 
God was the direct leader of 
Israel and he knew when and 
who to kill." 

This argument throws out 
the leading of God in today's 
world. Just because God is not 
directly leading our nation 
today doesn't mean that He 
doesn't lead at all. The Bible 
says something about God 
setting up rulers of this world 
and us being responsible to 

Joining the army should be 
left up to the individual. If 
ninety-nine out of one hun- 
dred Adventists shouldn't join 
the army for whatever rea- 
sons, that one Adventist 
should be able to exercise his 
free will and decide what is 
best for him. We are individ- 
uals even before we are Ad- 

As far as killing in war goes, 
I find it necessary. Everyone 
has to decide for himself. 1 
have thought over the op- 
posing issues and have de- 
cided to carry a gun if I ever go 
to war. 

First of all, "Thou shalt not 
kill," is more accurately trans- 
lated, "You shall not mur- 
der," as found in the NIV. 

Secondly, we again have the 
example of the Israelites. 
They wiped-out entire nations 

at times. 

Thirdly, you are only direct- 
ly responsible for your own 
soul. If you kill someone in 
war, you may end his period of 
probation, but it was his duty 
to get his life in gear. God, as 
a just God, can only be just if 
he gives responsibility for our 
own salvation to us. We don't 
cause a person to go to Hell if 
we kill them. 

This may sound cruel and 
hard, but God can't let some- 
one else be responsible for my 

These are very difficult 
decisions for an Adventist to 
make. 1 just hope that we 
don't decide for my opinion or 
Bill's, but that we think about 
it and, with an open mind, 
decide for ourselves.

REm.. SET... GROW... 

by Bill Goth (USNR) 

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy 
in September, 1974, planning 
to make a career of it. How- 
ever, I was converted to 
S.D.A. Christianity and, in the 
process, gave up the idea of 
making the military a career. 

I have given my experience 
much thought and here are a 

few reasons why I believe, 
excepting a few special cases, 
Adventists shouldn't volun- 
teer for military service. 

Exodus 20:3 says, "You 
shall have no other gods 
before me." The military may 
give lip service to religious 
freedom, but when push 
comes to shove, and it will 
with issues like Sabbath ob- 
servance, the individual is 
conditioned and pressured to 
either see things the military's 
way or be considered a 
"troublemaker" (I know from 
experience that the military 
goes out of its way to make life 
miserable for "trouble- 
makers."). Don't expect any 
help from your chaplain 

One job I held, while in the 
Navy, gave me an unique view 
of the moral depravity that is a 
part of military life. 

I will not go into details 
because they are not only unfit 
for publication but, in many 
cases, are probably beyond 
description (trust me, I know!) 
Suffice it to say that if 
Paul's admonition that "bad 
company corrupts good 
morals" is true, then military 
service will surely do it (and I 
know several SDAs to whom 
this happened). 

Exodus 20:13 says, "You 
shall not murder." Mr. Dic- 
kerhoff doubtless prefers the 
translation of ' 'murder' ' to 
"kill" and that suits me fine. 
He will probably argue that 
killing in war isn't the same as 
murder, but that argument 
ignores the true nature of war. 
In peacetime, it is socially 
unacceptable for a citizen of

Country A to kill a citizen of 
Country B. Therefore, when 
Country A declares war on 
Country B, it conditions its 
people (especially the mill, 
tary to hate Country B and its 
people.) As the war pro. 
gresses, the soldier from 
Country A. seeing his com- 
rades killed and his country 
ravaged, increasingly loses his 
inhibitions until he no longer 
distinguishes between armed 
and unarmed enemies or sol- 
diers and defenseless civil. 
ians. This has been true of all 
wars throughout history (in. 
eluding U.S.) to varying ex- 
tents. The hatred (and thus 
the brutality) is further inten- 
sified when the soldier from 
Country A percieves Country 
B people as racially inferior. 

So. as you can see the 
differentiation between "kill" 
and "murder" is really im- 

For these main reasons, 1 
urge SDA's not to enlist. The 
only exception I can see is if an 
individual feels called of God 
to witness in the military. 

There are several options 

1. You can become a doctor, 
nurse or other non-combatant 

2. You can enlist In the j 
Army (the only branch that 
generally allows it) as a medic 
and receive conscientious ob-

_ The tradition for a day of 
■thanksgiving extends far back 
■into the history of mankind. 
■The Jews had a holiday known 
las the Feast of Tabernacles in 
■which they presented the first 
Wfruits of their harvest to God. 
f Later, the Greeks estab- 
f lished a day called the Thes- 
I morphoria, to thank Demeter 
I for the harvest which she had 
Iblessed. In honor of Ceres, the 
iKomans also held a harvest 
■ celebration called Corelia. 
But the account that por- 

trays the truest meaning of 
Thanksgiving happened near- 
ly 360 years ago at Plymoth 
Rock, Massachussetts. 

Though the story is familiar, 
recallbg it is significant even 

The winter of 1620-21 was 
hard on the little group of 
Pilgrims who had come from 
England on the Mayflower. 
Shelter was bare and the food 
supply was scarce. Due to the 
coldness and lack of proper 
food, sickness prevailed. 

Thanksgiving riddle 

This puzzle is built around Thanksgiving. Fill in the blanks 
Land find some things the Bible says about giving thanks. 

Once, in fact, all but seven 
persons were sick. One by one 
the settlers died until only 
fifty-five of the one-hundred 
and one were still alive. 

With the beginning of 
spring came warmth and hope 
to the previously discouraged 
Pilgrims. They busied them- 
selves preparing for the next 
winter. That year they planted 
twenty acres of com, six of 
barley and six of peas. Great 
care was taken with these 
crops, for their lives depended 
upon them. Spring blossomed 
into summer, and summer 
mellowed into autumn. 

By the time early December 
came upon the colony, new 
shelters had been built and 

the crop harvested. Although 
the peas had been scorched, 
the com and barley would last 
them through the winter. 

It had been a good year and 
the Pilgrims had much to be 
thankful for. Governor Brad- 
ford declared that having 
fasted together in the time of 
little, they should new feast 
together. Wishing to share the 
bountiful yield, Massasoit and 
ninety of his braves were 
invited to this feast which was 
to thank God for the harvest. 
As they sat down to the feast 
they tmly had much to be 
thankful for. 

Though over three and a 
half centuries have passed 
since the first Thanksgiving, 

we today have much to be 
thankful for. Few of us worry 
where the next meal will come 
from or where we will find a 
place to sleep. But does a 
society so richly blessed re- 
member to thank the God who 
makes it all possible? 

Thanksgiving is a time for 
such remembering and giving 
thanks to God. As we ap- 
proach this special holiday 
with its traditional parades, 
football,' games, friends and 
food, let us take the time to 
reflect on our blessings and 
give thanks to God.

Thank goodness that Cowboy fans aren't in the majority. But

Realizing the effect that 
high tuition costs have on 
anendance, the administra- 
tion has unveiled a plan that

next year. This plan will 
reportedly reduce tuition to 
$25 a semester hour. At this 
unbelievable rate, attendance 
is estimated to sky-rocket. 

The plan is a very simple 
one. The money lost through 
the reduced tuition rate will be 
made up in the creation of 
several new fines. These fines 
are explained below.

For the past eighty-five days, these two astute scientists have 
conducted their laboratory experiments on biological specimens 
being held in captivity. Their results are very astounding and 
we thought you might like to share in this knowledge that has 
revoiutioned the scientific community. 

Throughout the months of August, September, October and 
November, these tests have been going on to see just what 
effects could be reached in the common cockroach if their diet 
was narrowed down to one specific food substance. 

Many varieties were sampled (along with foods from the 
Cafeteria and CK). Four food were finally chosen and used 
because of the nature of their contents. 

These four are: 

Baygon (a wonderful 102% bait insecticide) 
la)ma-Llnda Linkettes 
dirty socl<s 

Here Is the animal used In the experiments: 

Family: Blattidae 

Genus: Collegedalean 

Species: talgus 

This specimen proved to be extremely hardy and held up 
well, even under the Linkette diet. Noticing the graph 
accompanying this report, the results gained from the many 
hours ot extensive research can be seen. 

The graph was used to measure the total body length atlamed 
in each given month. The numbers are averages taken from one 
hundred specimens in each of the four experimental diets. 

The charts shows that overall, the roaches gained ™e most 
weight and body length from the dirty sock diet and the 
Baygon food. while the Mega-Vitarains and Linkettes 
decreased me iwo characteristics in a very significant way. 

Also noted was the fact that four out of five roaches, when 

" given the choice, picked the Bavgon diet over any of the otner 

leading brands, this may be an indication of roaches

The two scientists, after much careful and deliberate thought, 
have come to the conclusion that maybe a mixture of linkette 
mash and Mega-Vitamins placed strategically throughout the 
infested area (i.e. the bottoms of water mugs) might rid the 
entire area of the Collegedalean talgus once and for all.

Financial aid cut 

The cost vary from 10% to 
70%, but most states are 
currently having to reduce aid 
to college students. 

Tight state budgets and the 
federal aid cuts are forcing 
reductions that loan officers 
will keep some students from 
attending college at all, ac- 
cording to reports at the 
recent National Association of 
State Scholarship and Grant 
Programs meetings. 

Aid funds were cut 70% in 
Alabama, while cuts in Mis- 
sissippi left 40% of applicants 
without any assistance. State 
student incentive grants were 
reduced 30% in Arkansas, and 
the overall student aid fund 
fell $3.3 million in North 

The tight funding left state 
and college officials with dif- 
ficult choices to make. Be- 
cause of last-minute decisions 
on federal student aid, some 

financial aid offices ran out of 
money before they realized it. 
Officials now say the "first 
come, first served" policies 
that have often applied in the 
past will leave some of the 
most needy students without 
any aid. 

Some states are tightening 
up eligibility requirements 
making it more difficult for 
students to prove they are 
independent, while others are 
recommending new tax incen- 
tives to encourage parents to 
save more for their children's

Art Buchwald, satire columnist for the Washingtor, Post, tells 
the humorous story of two average Amencan {?■""" "™ 
exchanged Christmas cards. The fnendly greetmgs turned 
competitive when one family sent the other not just a Christmas 
card, but a gift. Not to be outdone, the gift's recipients sent a 
more expensive gift back the next Chnstmas. 

The trend continued with every successive year finding each 
family sending a more extravagant gift than the time before in 
an attempt to better their former friends. 

In an ending exaggerated to an extreme that only Buchwald 
would dare put in print, we find the two families angrily 
supplying the other with Lincoln Continentals and Cadillacs. 

As "far out as the story may be. Buchwald has touched on a 
Christmas note that indeed seems to replace the true spirit of 
Christmas with another spirit. 

How do you decide who to give gifts to? Relatives will be on 
the list, of course. The very best friends will probably rate some 
type of what not. But how about after that? 

1 dare say that your gift giving will largely be determined by 
who has given gifts to you. Furthermore, the worth of the gin 
will be as near to identical as you can possibly find. 

Americans have revised the golden rule to read, "Give unto 
others as you expect others to give unto you." 

Almost two thousand years ago God gave the first Christmas 
gift ever— His son. He did not give because we had given to 
Him. He didn't even ask a gift in return, (of course, we could 
never have matched the gift's worth.) Rather, He gave because 
of love. 

The true spirit of Christmas is one which gives without giving 
and, to go even further, receives without feeling obligated to 

The Synta Claus symbol remains as strong as it does year 

after year because Santa symbolizes one-way giving He does 
not feel bound to anyone, nor does anyone feel obligated to 
return a sift to Santa. 

As a child I sometimes left cookies on the table for Santa to 
enioy but I never considered it a trade off. Santa would come 
whether or not I had given to him. I could feel free to give 
because of my affection for Santa— no other reason. You see. 
Santa never required cookies.

Dear Editor: 

I enjoyed the chapel we had 
on Tuesday the 17th of 
November, but I think most of 
the people did not appreciate 
it because they are not aquain- 
ted with science or are 
ignorant of the facts. For 
instance, when we have a 
travel program, we see how 
people live or how other 
people have an influence on 
our country and vice versa. 

Even if the service only 


pleased the small group of 
science scholars in the school, 
which may be the minority, we 
should consider the fact that in 
society Seventh-day Adven- 
tists are a minority and we as 
Adventists should take the 
majority's preferences under 

This should be applicable in 
all situations. We should not 
look for what we wa'nt all the 
time in the school programs, 
but see it as something to 

please everyone most of the 
time. I write this to those who 
I have heard to be very 

I think that it is important to 
see what Southern Missionary 
College has contributed to 
society and its potential in the 
scientific world so that we can 
become even more proud of 
this institution and the place 
which God has ordained it to

Dear Editor, 

(In address to Mr. Culpepper) 
Your article about the 
Dallas Cowboys is obviously a 
biased opinion. I will admit we 
all have a right to our own 
opinion, but the few Dallas 
fans have made a wise choice. 
What other, team has been to 
the Super Bowl 5 times? 

It is obvious that Dallas is 
the team everybody hates for 
one reason: they continually, 
year after year, beat every- 
body's favorite team. Why 
else would someone hate the 
team which is the winningest 
team in football? 

And concerning the loss to 
Detroit, just because Dallas 
lost to them doesn't make me 
any less proud. I just consider 
that in the 4 precious weeks 
they beat LA. Philadelphia. 
Miami and Buffalo— all of 
which are or were playoff 

I'm sure that LA. Phila- 
delphia. Miami and Buffalo 
fans are still proud of their 
teams. And Dallas beat them 

outright; whereas Detroit kept 
their game with Dallas from 
going into overtime with a 
field goal while 12 men were 

In conclusion, I would like to team, the one, the only. The 
say that there are a lot of good Dallas Cowbody. 
teams. But there is only 

team with class, :.nd which 
cantruly be called great. The 
team that everybody hates (at 
least the. ones who doni 
appreciate class) Americas

a are evident to any obser- 
of the building program 
larried out on the SMC cam-

luses the centrex to

of peak usage, busy 

ions are often encoun-

lircuits in the PABX are in 

^. This is a problem which 

; phone company can solve 

Inly by installing new equip- 

^'ifh more available lines 

.'itching facilities. 

New equipment brings with 

I higher costs. Because of the 

pcreased cost new equipment 

luld present to the college, 

lanagement at the college 

elected not to upgrade 

telephone service at this time. 
They have the uneviable job of 
making this decision and as is 
evident in the article on tele- 
phone service, to which this 
letter is addressed, it is a 
decision they have reached 
after careful consideration of 
the available alternatives. 

The telephone company is 
beginning construction of new 
facilities in Ooltewah which 
will house a ten-thousand line 
digital switching system. This 
system is " 'state of the art' ' in 
its technological design and 
will offer the community such 
features as call forwarding, 
call waiting, and three-way 
dialing, as well as increased 
speed in dialing and more 
available circuits to enhance 
communications. Completion 
of this system is slated for 
November of 1982. 

Present cut-over schedul- 
ing, agreed to by the tele- 
phone company and college 
management, would bring the 
same services fo SMC in 
January or February of 1983 
thru the use of a "remote" 
office to be located on the 
SMC campus. It is hoped that 
these arrangements will prove 
satisfactory to college admin- 
istration, faculty. and 

We realize that February 
1983 seems a long time away 

when you are lined up to use a 
phone or are listening to a fast 
busy tone (indication of busy 
circuits). There are a few 
suggestions which we would 
like to make which should help 
some with the present 

1. Help keep costs of tele- 
phone service down. Fraud- 
ulent use of the telephone is a 
serious crime and has cost the 
telephone company and SMC 
approximately $6,000.00 over 
the past years, plus adminis- 
trative costs in accounting for 
and attempting to collect on 
these calls. 

2. Limit your calls. Ask 

yourself. "Is this call neces- 

3. Make your calls early in 
the morning or in the after- 
noon. Avoid the hours when 
usage is at its peak. 

4. Limit the length of time 
you talk. Talk only three to 
five minutes. Do your visiting 
in person. 

5. Remember that others 
need the talking path that you 
are using. 

6. Consider having an out- 
side line installed in your 
dorm room. There are a 
limited number of CoUegedale 
lines available on a first come 
first served basis. 

Observation of these sug- 
gestions will not eliminate the 
problems inherent in using the 
centrex but should help re- 
lieve some of the frustrations 
and help improve everyones 

We appreciate the ( 
which the article expresses 
and have an open ear to the 
community. It is our desire to 
continue to grow with SMC. 
both in size and in quality.

Dear Editor: 

I just read, belatedly, the 
November 5 issue of Accent, 
and feel a comment needs to 
be made concerning Hope's 
answer to the young man who 
had a question about stopping 

Her answer was that one 
has to make a personal choice 
between "modern re- 
search's" opinion that it is 
OK, and Ellen White's view 
that it is sinful, because "it 
has not been thoroughly deter- 
mined if masturbation is 
wrong or not." 

This answer has a far 
deeper implication than the 
immediate question; it in- 
volves, first, whether or not to 
accept all of Ellen White's 
counsel as inspired or whether 
to feel free to judge what is 
and what is not inspired, using 
"modern science" and per- 
sonal inclination as the yard- 
stick. As a Seventh-day 
Adventist, 1 believe that the 
Spirit of Prophecy is God's 
special gift to the last genera- 
tions to help us through the 
maze of counterfeit, deceit, 
and misinterpretation of scien- 
tific fact. I do not believe it is 
merely the best judgment of 
an astute human mind; there- 
fore, 1 cannot stand as an 
evaluator of its validity. 

Secondly, consider how 
often the supposed deductions 
of science are revised or cast 
aside, and how the theories 
advanced by different scien- 
tists conflict with one another. 
Most of what has been written 
on the subject falls into the 
category of opinion rather 

than scientific observation. 
Before 1950. most opinions 
tended to present the ill 
effects of masterbation; since 
1950 most would scoff at the 
idea that masturbation might 
have any influence on mind, 
body or morals. 

The majority of individuals 
in medicine, social services, 
and psychology of today en- 
dorse or even encourage 
masturbation, calling it a 
healthful practice, but there 
are other voices of careful 
scientists who not only do not 
endorse, but point out some of 
the dangers of masturbation. 
A curious thing is that while 
respected physicians will say 
there is no evidence that the 
practice does any harm, they 
will then outline their own 
methods of treatment with the 
strongest methods available to 
medical science. If there is no 
disease there should be no 
treatment. Treatment, often 
includes some of the most 
powerful drugs known for 
influencing the central ner- 
vous system. A disparity 
between what is said about the 
harmlessness of the disorder 
and what is found in practice 
is illustrated by the article in 
the medical journal. Patient 
Care. October 15, 1978. page 

Some sceintists consider 
excessive masturbation to be 
caused by an emotional upset 
of some kind. They consider 
masturbation to be normal and 
physiologic, but also recognize 
that certain physical and emo- 
tional disorders are at least 
associated with the act. (i.e. 

Vol 18. Pediatrics, page 803. 
July-December 1956). 

Other practitioners find that 
individuals who suffer from 
various mental illnesses, from 
certain physical diseases, and 
from obscure disorders that 
are difficult to treat, often 
admit to the free practice of 
masturbation as a long stand- 
ing habit. While some say the 
disease caused the masturba- 
tion, inspiration says it is the 
other way around. 

To the young man who 
wrote the letter. I would say 
you probably cannot control 
the habit by trying to control 
the act itself, because the 
habit is the result of a deeper 
cause. That makes as much 
sense as trying to treat a fever 
rather than the infection that 
is causing it. It seems to me 
that a person had a good sense 
of self-worth, based on a 
thorough understanding of his 
place in the universe and time; 
of the reciprocal nature of his 
relationship with his Creator; 
and an unselfish attitude of 
service toward his fellow man. 
he would not experience the 
"fever" of aberrent behavior. 
May I offer a prescription 
that I believe will work? It is 
found in Desire of Ages, page 
83. "It would be well for us to 
spend a thoughtful hour each 
day in contemplation of the 
life of Christ. ..Beholding the 
beauty of His character, we 
shall be 'changed into the 
same image from glory to 
glory.' 2 Cor. 3:18." 

Sincerely yours.

^Typewriters get mixed reviews 

December 10. 1981/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 
b- ^ - Vl. frl V\ j r \ V\ ^ 

Typewriters available for 
student use in the library of 
I Southern Missionary College 
I have become a topic of discus- 
lately. Some students 
jliave voiced complaints about 
Rheir condition and availabil- 

ifv- , . 

I The most complamts regis- 
liered were with Dr. Barbara 
\uf of the English Depart- 
ment. She reported that both 
"nglish composition and Bib- 
lical Literature students had 
ined about typewriters 
feeding repair. Dr. Ruf admit- 
ied that some papers submit- 
led to her were difficult to 
lead due to typewriter mal- 

While investigating the con- 
fcition of the typewriters. I 
fthecked with several students 
^ho were working at the 
es and got positive 
nesponses from all of them. 
jThe only complaint was that 
Bhere weren't enough of them. 
English Department head, 
[David Smith, requires type- 

written papers in many classes 
and reported not having any 
complaints. "If there's a big 
problem. I'm not aware of it." 
he said. The only problem 
brought to his attention con- 
cerning the machines was 
earlier in the year when 
freshman students had limited 
access to them due to study 
hall requirements. 

The typewriters in the base- 
ment of the McKee Library 
are not a pari of the library 
budget. The older gray ma- 
chines were donated in 1975 
by the senior class. At the 
time of donation, the type- 
writers were already used. 

According to Lois Doherty, 
the library worker in charge of 
the typing area, an IBM 
serviceman told her that these 
second-hand machines were 
pretty well worn out about two 
years ago. 

Three new typewriters were 
purchased last year; one with 
funds donated by the Student 
Association, one from the 

senior class and one by the 
college itself. 

Doherty recognizes, as part 
of student's reasons for com- 
plaint, that students have a 
habit of waiting until the last 
minute to type assignments 
and an obvious bottleneck 
results. She attributes the 
condition of the machines to 
their constant, at times, brutal 
use, many of them for over six 

J Some suggested solutions to 
the typewriter problems are to 
plan work which required 
typing in advance, report im- 
mediately any malfunction 
with a machine to the attend- 
ant on duty as all machines are 
on a service contract, and 
finally, try to convince the 
Student Association to pur- 
chase a few more new ma- 
chines. In reference to the last 
suggested solution. Dr. Ruf 
feels SA purchasing of some 
new typewriters to be "more 
valuable than donuts and hot

Performing that morning to 
an audience of about 30 people 
were two vocalists and three 
pianists. The singers were 
Lisa Self and Juli Zacharias, 
both sopranos. Those perfor- 
ming on the piano were 
Michael Bryant, Eunice Hong 
and Renee Cometa. Both 
Hong and Cometa are grade 
school students in or below the 
fifth grade and are under the 
instruction of Dr. .Robert Sage. 

The History and Art Depart- 
ments continue their prepara- 
tion for next summer's 
European Study Tour. A rep- 
resentative of Europa Express 
was recently on campus to 
confirm transportation and 
lodging arrangements in 
Europe. From conversations 
with him the tour directors are 
confident that the estimated 
costs will remain firm. Con- 
firmed reservations are 
approaching the minimum 
number of 20-25 which makes 
the remaining spaces limited. 
Students considering this 
activity should finalize their 
plans during Christmas break.

D Crossroads 

Christmas: has it lost its true meaning? 


by Rosemary Bryant 
(To the tune of ' 'SUver Bells") 

Bustling sidewalks 
Crowded sidewalks 
Neon signs in the night 
Nothing's new 
Still it's true 
Santa's coming 

Tension heightening 
And it's frightening 
How commercial things are 
The nation's turned into one 
shopping mall 

Plastic trees 
Gift wrapped cheese 
Tinsel and lights 
Yes, it's Christmas 
Christmas pies 
Bloodshot eyes 
The nation's caught up 
in it all. 

And so it goes. The year is 
divided between the number 
of shopping days before 
Christmas and the number of 
days in which the merchandise 
can be returned for full credit. 

Gift-giving is a noble idea, 
and I'd be one of the last to 
dispense with it, but let's 
consider for a moment its 

Mom and Dad incur 
unnecessary debts doing their 
parental "duty" in making 
sure the kids receive all 
they've asked for, while kids 
make daily revisions of their 
lists. And those of you for- 
tunate enough to have large 
families know the financial 

frustrations of the season. 
Everyone wants to buy a gift 
for each family member (and 
in some cases is expected to 
do so). 

I once spent Christmas with 
a family who poured endless 
amounts of energy and money 
into buying presents. But the 
whole spirit of Christmas was 
absent from that home. 

"I'm not getting you any- 
thing 'cause you don't deserve 

"Why do we have to sing 
anything? Can't we just open 
the presents?" 

"Did you see the tacky 
plastic iewelry 


"What he got you costs 
more than what he got me." 

It made me stop and re- 
evaluate the purposes for 
giving. All too often the 
emphasis is placed on the gift, 
its quality (price tage?) re- 
flecting the character of the 
giver. We feel compelled to 
give to some and sorry for not 
being able to give to others. 
Materialism rises to the sur- 

Plastic trees, wreaths, and 
mistletoe have their place, but 
there should be no room for 
plastic hearts. Painted china, 
ornaments, and scenery are 

tions £ 

eptable, but painted inten- 

; not. 

But let me leave a word for 
those aspiring young critics 
who are poised, pen in hand, 
to begin their "Dear Scrooge'' 
letters. I'm not suggesting 
that gift-giving be deleted 
from Christmas. What gives 
more happiness than bringing 
a little joy to someone you 
love? And is there one of us 
without the desire for love? 

The gift of time, the gift of 
self, wrapped in love and 
offered with a cheerful heari— 
that is the real spirit of 

scenes, Christmas cards and 
letters — even the giving of 
gifts (how and when); Santa 
Clauses and their elk. regional 
activities and foods, concerts, 
carolling, programs, and 

These all vary from one part 
of the country to another and 
are a reflection of the cultural 
and ethnic background of that 
region. To deny ourselves this 
wealth of music, art, and 
culture is to deprive ourselves 
of a rich and noble heritage. 
No other season seems to 
bring out the best in man's 
artistic endeavors as does 

Then there is the commeri- 
cial aspect. To start with, just 
about everything we do on this 
earth will be tinged with 
commercialism — a plain fact. 
It's true that many merchants 
make almost half or more of 
their yeariy profits during this 
season and because this is the 
situation, many people de- 
nounce the enjoyment that the 
holiday season brings. We 
often hear the wail that 
"Christmas is getting so 
Well, here is 

week I heard a startling radio 
advertisement: "Give your car 
a Christmas gift it deserves — 
^n oil change and a lube job ! ' ' 
(sick) Somehow we must 
thread our way through this 
commercialism and learn how 
and what to give. 

Lastly. Christmas obviously 
has religious significance. 
Many of us shy away from this 
simply because we are not 
comfortable with the pagan 
and pseudo-Christian origins 
of the holiday. It's a fact that 
Jesus was not born on Decem- 
ber 25 — we all know that. But 
that fact shouldn't deter us 
from celebrating the greatest 
event to have taken place on 
this earth: the birth of Jesus 
Christ which set in motion the 
plan of salvation. 

But, here we also need to 
observe caution — we are no' 
worshipping the Baby Jesus or 

the Virgin Mary. We are not 
upholding the events in 
Bethlehem above the events 
which they foreshadow— the 
Second Coming and our Eter- 
nal Destiny. George Frederick 
Handel certainly must have 
had great insight when he 
composed The Messiah. This 
musical masterpiece depicts 
the entire plan of salvation. 
The whole story is there from 
"For Unto Us a Child is Born" 
to the majesty of "Hallelujah! 
for the Lord God Omnipotent 

So, from these three aspects 
we determine a definition and 
posture as to what the "Spirit 
of Christmas" is. Christmas 
is: an appreciation of art, 
music, and culture; it is 
giving, sharing, and loving; is 
is being with loved ones and 
also noticing those who are 

less fortunate than we are; it 
is joy, hope, laughter, warmth 
peace on earth, wonder, and 
goodwill to men; it is rejoic- 
inc in the Birth of Christ and at 
the same time anticipating His 
glorious Second Coming. 
There is an expectation and 
aura that at times sc 
almost heavenly. 

Have we lost the Spirit of 
Christmas? No, I think not. If 
we have lost it, misplaced it, 
or never had it, then we surely 
have missed the beautiful 
theme that threads its way , 
through the whole story of 
salvation because it is still ; 
true, as the carol rings out, 
"Man shall live forevermore 
because of Christmas Day. 
To which Tiny Tim, made so 
famous by Charies Dickens, 
would have added, "God bless 
us, everyone." 

Winter proposals blossom 

define or explain what is 
meant by "spiint" and also 
say a few words about Christ- 
mas itself. It is a very compli- 
cated concept, but there seem 
to be at least three aspects 
that we might consider: the 
cultural-artistic, the commer- 
cial, and the religious. Inclu- 
ded in the cultural, artistic able Christmases 

category are such items as when I made sc.,.. „ ,„ 

parades, fiestas, decorated gi^e away-like the bookends 
nouses, Lhnstmas tree dis- carved into the shape of a 
plays, museum and art exhi- dog's head, etc. But it's true 
bits, breathtaking store and that this commerical aspect 
street Her„„t,„„c ranger can get out of hand. Just this 

where common 
judgment need to prevail. In 
our home we always had 
Christmas gifts, but' mostly 
they were things that we 
actually needed (a new pair of 
shoes, a shirt, or a pair of 

of my most memor- 


street decorations. 

(CH)— Springtime is tradition- 
ally the season when a young 
man's thoughts turn to love, 
but on college campuses, 
romance is always in season, 
as two recent autumnal pro- 
posals show. 

Eariierthis'fall, a Michigan 
State University alumnus sur- 
prised his girlfriend at a 
football game. As the couple 
sat watching the halftime fes- 
tivities, the MSU card section 
spelled out his proposal in 
letters she couldn't ignore. 
After a flustered acceptance 
from the red-faced woman. 

the happy fellow signaled the 
students with a card of his 
own: a giant sign saying 

It took only a donation to the 
Student Foundation to secure 
the card section's services, 
but foundation officers say 
special messages aren't 

Neither are proposals 
delivered by policemen, but 
the Brigham Young University 
Security/Police couldn't resist 
an opportunity to help a BYU 
student pop the question. On a 
prearranged schedule. 

campus police pulled the car

The gift for a King 

I Though not well known, he 
I was one of the wisemen who 
Let out after the star in search 
■of the newborn King. As he 
Iset out he took with him a 
;apphire. a ruby, and a pearl 
IS gifts for the baby King. 
lArtaban was to meet his three 
■friends, Caspar, Melchior and 
iBalthasar, at a prearranged 
■place and if he was not there 
■at the agreed upon time they 
|were to leave him. 

As he was pushing his horse 
■as fast as he could, he came 
■upon a traveler in the road 
Iwho was stricken with a fever. 
Bf he stopped to help the man 
e would miss his friends, but 
if he left, the sick man might 
|die. Artaban stayed with the 
nd helped to heal him. 
e was now alone and 
Ineeded camels and bearers to 
■help him cross the desert. 
lArtaban sold his sapphire to 

get them. The King would 
never receive this gift, he 
thought to himself. 

Traveling as fast as he 
could, Artaban made his way 
across the desert and arrived 
in Bethlehem— late again. 
Joseph and Mary and the 
King had already gone. 
Artaban was staying where 
there was a baby in the house 
when Herod's soldiers came to 
kill them. All over town he 
could hear the cries of mothers 
as they mourned the death of 
their babies. As the soldiers 
drew near the house, he 
stepped outside and with the 
ruby, bribed the officer not to 
enter that house. He had 
saved the child's life, but the 
King would never receive the 
ruby as a gift. 

For over thirty years 
Artaban traveled looking for 

the King, but never finding 
Him. One day he heard of a 
Jesus who was being crucified 
on Calvary. From the reports 
it sounded as if He might be 
the King. Thinking that his 
pearl, the last of his gifts 
might save the king, he 
rushed for Calvary. As he 
rounded one of the streets he 
met up with a young girl 
running from a group of 
soldiers. "My father is in debt 
and they are taking me to sell 
me to pay for the debt. Save 
me!" she cried. Artaban 
knew what he must do. Slowly 
he drew out the pearl and paid 
it to the soldiers. 

Suddenly the earth began to 
shake and a flying tile struck 
Artaban on the head. He fell 
to the ground half — conscious. 
Suddenly he began to move 
his lips and say, "Not so. My 
Lord. For when saw I thee an 

Christmas is not a day or a season, 

but a condition of the heart and mind. 
If we love our neighbors as ourselves; 
if in our riches we are poor in spirit 
and in our poverty we are rich in grace; 
if our charity vaunteth not itself, 
but suffereth long and is kind; 
if when our brother asks for a loaf, 
we give ourselves instead; 
if each day dawns in opportunity 
and sets in achievement, 
however small — 
then every day is Christ's day 
and Christmas is always near. 

James Wallingford 

hungered and fed thee? Or 
thirsty, and gave thee drink? 
When saw I thee a stranger, 
and took thee in? Or naked 
and clothed thee? When saw I 
thee sick in prison, and came 
unto thee? Thirty-three years I 
have looked for thee, but I 
have not seen thy face, nor 
ministered to thee, my King;" 
and then like a whisper from 
very far away, there came a 

voice saying, "Verily I say to 
you, Inasmuch as thou hast 
done it unto one of the least of 
these my brethren, thou hast 
done it unto me." And 
Artaban smiled in death, for 
he knew that the King had 
received all three gifts. 

Many thanks to 
William Barclay.

Since football begi 
America in 1869. thousands of 
teams have competed for glory 
on the gridiron. But a team 
from Georgia Tech rolled over 
its opponents to rack up the 
highest football score ever 

On October 7, 1916 on Grant 
Field in Atlanta. Georgia Tech 
played Cumberland College. 
One thousand curious spec- 
tators were on hand to observe 
the skirmish. The famed 
"Rambling Wrecks" from 
Georgia Tech were then 
coached by John Heisman, 
one of football's hallowed 

That afternoon. Georgia 
Tech was an angry football 
team bent o.i working off a 
grudge against its opponent, 
for the preceding spring, an 
athletic team from Cumber- 

land had humiliated Tech

Cumberiand punted to start 
the game, and on the first play 
from scrimmage, Georgia 
Tech scored a touchdown. It 
was to be the first of many. 
When the score reached 
28-to-O, the overpowered 
Cumberiand team changed its 
strategy. Instead of receiving 
the ball after each Georgia 
Tech score, it elected to kick 
off, thus keeping the "Ram- 
bling Wrecks" in their own 
territory. But it did no good. 
The score continued to mount 
and the first quarter ended 
with Georgia Tech ahead by a 
score of 63-to-O. 

The bewildered Cumber- 
land team took refuge in 
holding the ball as long as 
possible, determined to keep 
the score down. Nevertheless, 
the first half ended with the

and the score mounted to

Volleyball, tennis, Christmas review 

Everyone is anxious for 
Christmas break. It doesn't 
seem like this semester can be 
over already. Why is it that 
the older you get the faster 
time seems to fly by? Wasn't 
it just yesterday that you were 
playing tag with all your 5th 
grade friends? 

Just about all the 
different plans people are 
making for THE break. Skiing 
at Snows'ioe (you guys know 
I'm jeaious). tanning at 
Daytona Beach, seeing the 
grandparents, meeting your 

boyfriend's parents for the 
first time, or just going home 
and doing nothing. Well, 
whatever it is that you plan to 
do, everyone has to be excited 
about getting away from 
"Happy Valley" for awhile. 
Merry Christmas. 

Volleyball season is well 
under way and Hartle's team 
is out in front of the "A" 
league. B league east shows 
Lonto's team in front of 
Harnage by a few points. B 
league west has Matraka's 
and Martin's team tied at this 
point. The play has been very 

exciting and there havi 
many close games. If you're 
lacking something to do some 
night, drop by the gym and 
watch a volleyball game! 

Br sure and sign up for 
basketball before you go home 
for Christmas. The only other 
day after Christmas break to 
sign up is registration day.

A Cambridge University 
student recently proved this 
true when he qualified to run 
for Parliament in Liverpool. 
That in itself isn't funny, but 
the name he chose to run 
under is. John Desmond 
Lewis, as he 

paid a $ .96 fee to change his 
moniker, for ballot purposes, 
to Tarquin Fintimlinbinwhin- 
bimlin Bus Stop-Ftang-Ole-

Not only will that title

pose serious problems for

T.VOS the night before finals, and all through the college 
Students were frantically absorbing new knowledge 
Rooms were all messy, but no one could care. 
They just hoped no visitors soon would be there. 
The deans were nestled, exhausted, in bed. 
While visions of empty dorms danced in their heads. 
I. with my schoolbooks and note-weary brain. 
Had just settled down to study in vain 
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter 
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter

Revealed plainly some figures down on the lawn. 
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, 
SulE. 0. Grundset. with eight tiny reindeer. 
[These creatures. I found, usually reside 
In Hackman Hall, in formaldehyde] 
More rapid than eagles they raced towards the lawn 
With E. O. Grundset just egging them on. 
"Come now. get moving, and listen to me. 
We 've got to deliver this lopsided tree." 
To the lawn directly in front of Wright Hall, 
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all! ' ' 
And then in a twinkling E. 0. Grundset was down 
Digging a hole in the hard frozen ground 
And all but forgetting my neglected books, 
leaned out of the window for a closer look. 
And I will describe, as best I can. 
The characteristics of this fabled man. 
He was dressed in jeans and a red flannel shirt 
And his clothes were all soiled with wet. muddy dirt 
Ihe Slump of a tree trunk he held in his teeth 
And the branches encircled his head like a wreath 
His droll little mouth was drawn up in a bow 
But a beard hehadn ( attempted to grow.

he had no way of being sure as

Two weeks ago Americans screamed, hugged and drank to 
,he happiness of a new year. Hours later, after the hangovers 
and football games had cleared from their minds and TV sets 
the same group, at least the courageous ones, sat down to the 
chore (torture) of creating New Year's resolutions that would 
improve their lives. . , ■ j i 

The lists reveal an outrageous medley of social indulgence 
that points out American indifference like a mirror reflects a 
large wart on the end of a nose. 

I will go on a diet. I mil exercise. I will reduce my l:me spent 
watching TV. I will stop eating sweets. I will study diligently 

Equipped with the latest in a highly technological society and 
seating ourselves splendidly in the dough of the world's bread 
basket, we the people of the United States of America, have 
limited our vocabularys to the word "more." Whoever 
invented the phrase, "making a mountain out of a molehill" 
was probably observing an American heap his dinner plate. 

Most resolutions either suggest that we will quit using too 
much of a good thing or we will take advantage of opportunities 
placed before us. A large number of the world's population 
can't even write a New Year's resolution. 

How can one of India's starving millions resolve to eat less? 
How can a primitive New Guineau native promise himself that 
he will study harder? How can an isolated third world 
inhabitant insist that he will decrease his TV viewing hours? 

The fact that most resolutions require us to reevaluate our 
method of handling what we've been handed is a sad testimony 
to those of us living in the land of plenty. But there is an even 
greater element of disgrace that manifests itself about this time 
of year. By now. most of these resolutions have been broken.

I am grateful to this institu-

provided for me to grow. 
People have been the most

have realized that some of the

about myself have been made 
in the studios of my teachers. 
My other friends have also 
helped me to grow in many 
different ways.

I am very ashamed that 
someone had to beg foi a 
letter of commendation for our 
school. Thi.s is mv fourth vear 
at SMC, my eighth year at 
Collegedale-and 1 tove ii! I 
recognize that nowhere on this 
planet is life perfect, but I 
surely thank Jesus for leading 
me here to be taught by some 
ofthebcsi teachers, including 
Hard Knocks and Professor 

Spiritually, the last eight 
years have brought great 
groulh; Jesus lids spoken to 
me through each religion 
teacher, and 1 believe 1 could 
say. evfery other teacher in 
some way. He has grown to be 
a Companion and Confidant — 
Someone I can even yell at, at 
times, and He understands. 
My relationship with Him is to 
a good deal due to the lessons 
and example of my leachers 
here at SMC; they have point- 

and Grampas. i feel that this is 
one of the greatest blessings 
college offers— the opportu — 
nity for fellowhsip with all 
ages. People who can open up 
and share their burdens, 
theological thoughts and 
goals, who I can listen to and 
comfort and point to Jesus, 
and who can listen to me, 
comfort and advise me, and 
point me to Jesus. 
Summer work has proved 
this to me over and over— I 
meet wonderful friends, but 
the bond of fellowhsip is not 
always there and 1 long for the 
people at school. I appreciate 
each one of the teachers for 

this reason: they don"i hold 
themselves separate, but 
so willing to speak to ..., 
personally, to be a friend and 
work for my benefit— even 
when I'm not so enihusiasti

Dear Editor, 

I felt that after reading the 
comments about the Atlanta

a few things. 

I feel that a "Pro forecast" 
has nothing to do with what a 
periodical may have said of

against Atlanta and were not 
necessary. We Atlanta fans 
are fully aware that Atlanta is

because the magazine Sport 
might have said that Atlanta is 

replacing Dallas as the 
"America's Team" does not 
mean that is the general 
concensus of Atlanta FANS

Mission emphasis comine 

The week of January 19 
through 26 has been desi- 
gnated Mission Emphasis 
Week at Southern Missionary 
College, with the 19th to the 
22iid covering the core of the 
activities. The week begins on 
Tuesday, January 19, when 
Elder D. A. Roth, associate 
secretary of the General Con- 
ference, holds chapel in the 
church. Elder Roth's main 
concern is for general 
missions, although he 
supports and helps with stu- 
dent missions as well. Elder 
Roth will be coming from the 
Orlando Campus where he will 
be visiting on Monday. 
January 18. 

Mission emphasis week is 
_ mainly an awareness pro- 
I gram by the General Con- 
I ference to acquaint the SMC 
I student body with the 
I church's mission outreach," 
5 Dan Kittle, student mis- 
is co-president with Wayne 

Dysinger. "Many students are 
unaware of the diversity of the 

carried on by our church." 

According to Mrs. Rice, 
secretary to the chaplain, stu- 
dent missions provides stu- 
dents with an "opportunity to

service while discovering 
whether they really enjoy their 
feild of study." Of course, the 
travel opportunities and the 
benefits of becoming acquain- 
ted with a foreign culture are 
additional pluses. 

"To me. student missions 
involves much more than one 
year of foreign service," 
added Rosemary Bryant. "As 
student missions public rela- 
tions director, I am committed 
to familiarizing the church 
laity in the Southern Union 
with the importance of mis- 
sionary service as a lifestyle. 
No one can be a missionary for 
only one year; rather, former 

student missionaries visualize 
potential service areas 
wherever they are."

for mterviews Tuesday and 
Wednesday afternoons from

AIA gains recognition 


Here's a riddle for today. 
What organization do you 
belong to that charged you 
nineteen cents dues this year 
and is known by its initials 
(AIA)? If you answered, 
" Advent ist Intercollegiate 
Association." you're correct. 

According to the AIA cons- 
titution, the purpose of the 
organization is to represent 
"the collective thought and 
opinion of all student govern- 
ments of Seventh-day Adven- 
tist instutitions of higher edu- 
cation and their respective 
members, and through which 
representation to and com- 

munication with other relevant 
bodies shall be fostered." 

Other purposes are to assist 
in promoting efficiency of 
student government operation 
and to coordinate channels of 
communication between the 
student governments of 
Adventist Colleges. 

AIA is administered by 
officers including a President, 
Vice-President of Publications 
and regional Vice-Presidents. 
This year's President is 
Darren Morgan, last year's 
Student Association President 
at Columbia Union College. 

The most prominent event 

of the AIA is its 
convention. The last conven- 
tion was held at Pacific Union 
College where it was voted 
that the 1982 convention will 
be held at Oakwood College. 

Convention activities in- 
clude election of officers, 
workshops, discussions, 
delegation voting on discussed 
topics and communication 
with top church officials. 

Member student govern- 
ments send delegates to the 
conventions. Incoming as well 
as outgoing Presidents, Vice- 
presidents, newspaper 
editors and social activity 
directors are the participants.

Prescription for a healthier. 


life in 1982. It ( 

lit least three 


j First, physically. Whatever a 
in sows in his physical life, 
it is what he will reap. Most 
of us claim that someday 
: will loose that extra few 
Ipounds or will get on a regular 

exercise program, but we 
often do little more than talk 
about it. With this good 
intention on our mind, time 
seems to slip bv and soon the 
semester or year is over with 
iiolhuig done about il. 

Why can't this year be 
different for all of us? Let us 
remember Paul's words and 
sow in such a way in oui 
physical life that we will be 
stronger, healthier people. 

This admonition also applies 
to our mental life. Whatever a 
man sows in his mental life, 
that is what he will reap. It is 
true scholastically. If we fail to 
study and learn the material 
from our classes now we will 
reap a harvest of low grades 
when the semester comes to 
an end. But, if we study and 
prepare now for the exams, 
later in the semester we are 
indeed sowing wisely and will 
reap accordingly. 

Not only is it important in our 
scholastic life, but in the 
things we let our minds dwell 
on. The mental harvest we will 
reap later will be determined 
hy whether we think on things 
of ihis world or on things that 
will up lift the mind and draw 
us closer to Christ. Whatever 
a man sows in his mental life, 
that is what he will reap. 

Finally, it is true in our 
spiritual life. Whatever a man 
sows spiritually, that is what 
he will also reap. We have all 
tried at one time or another to 
begin a meaningful spiritual 
life with God— some with 
greater success than others. 
This year, let us determine to 
have a greater spiritual life 
than ever before. By reading 
and studying our Bibles, 
through prayer and sharing 
our faith with others, we will 
be sowing in such a way that 
will produce a good spiritual

Super Bowl will be played in a 
little more than a week. The 
school, of course, is already 
preparing to accomodate the 
huge viewing audience. 

Several T.V. sets will he 
set up around campus to make 
sure Ihai everyone has a good 
seat. Because problems have 
developed in the past by 
mixing certain types of 
viewers, it has been decided to 
let each group have its own 
T.V. The following sites have 
been designated: 

The Student Center— The 
Student Center will be solely 
for guvs who only take time to 
watch one game a year— the 
Super Bowl. They will be able 
to talk all through the game on 
every subject besides the 
game and annoy themselves. 

Talge Hall Rec Room— This is 
expected to be the center of 
Super Bowl activity on 
campus. Preferred seating will 
be reserved for the guys who 
have lived in the Rec Room 
since September. The Deans 
feel it would be a violation of 
■their squatter's rights to deny 
Ihem this privilege. 

Also, during half-time Dean 
Evans will present Herb 
McCoy with the M.V.V. {The 
Most Valuable Viewer) award. 
Herb watched a record break- 
ing 52 games completely 
through. Aficr t^e award 
ceremonies ii ctillection will 
be taken up i.> hii\ Herb a pair 
of glasses. 

Thatcher Hall Rec Room— For 
the women of Thatcher Hal! 
who don't have their boy- 
friends' laundry to do, a 

six-inch black and white T.V. 
will be set up. But the girls 
will have to provide their own 
coat-hanger and tin foil for an 

The Gym— The P.E. Depart- 
ment has agreed to sponsor a 

T.V. set in the gym. This is 
expected to reduce the num- 
ber of obnoxious P.E. majors 
in the Talge Hall Rec Room 
who feel it is their duty and 
life-calling to display their 
complete knowledge of the 
rules and history of football. 

The New Year like a book lies before me; 

On its cover two words, "My Life." 1 see. 

I open the covers and look between- 
Each page is empty, no words can be seen. 

For 1 am the writer. 1 hold the pen 

That'll fill these pages to be read by men. 

Just what kind of book will my book be. 
My life written there for others to see. 

Each day a page written, one by one- 
Will it be worthwhile when finished and done? 

Lord, help me keep these pages clean and fair 
By living the life I'd have written there.

Volume 37, Number 15 

New name discussed 

The faculty of Southern 
Missionary College convened 
in a meeting on Tuesday, 
January 19, partially for the 
purpose of airing their feel- 
ings concerning the proposed 
name change of Southern 
Missionary College. 

Brian Strayer, Chairman of 
the name change committee, 
presented a summary of the 
committee's findings up to 
date. The top six name choices 
as seen by the committee, are: 
Southeastern College, South- 
eastern Adventist College, 
Southeastern Memorial Col- 
lege. Southeastern Christian 
College, Sutherland College 
and Wright College. 

In an informal hand poll, the 
majority of the faculty seemed 
10 prefer Southeastern Col- 

lege. Southerland College, a 
geographical and biographical 
combination of "Sutherland 
College," was preferred by a 
few others. 

The faculty input is, of 
course, just that— input. The 
final decision of whether the 
college will indeed change its 
name— and if so. what to— 
will be determined during a 
February board meeting. 

Student input, as indicated 
by survey results, is similar to 
faculty consensus. Students 
picked Southeastern College 
as their number one choice. 
"Southeastern" also appear- 
ed in the second and third 
choices. Southeastern Adven- 
tist College and Southeastern 
Memorial College. 

According to Dr. Wayne 

Thurber, Public Relations 
Director at SMC, alumni let- 
ters he has received tend to 
also agree with both faculty 
and student sentiments. 

College administrators see 
the need for a name change as 
the prerequisite to increasing 
the job market tor graduates. 
Another reason for a name 
switch is to further open up 
the big business contribution 

Dr. Frank Knittel, college 
President, mentioned that the 
change may even be made 
soon enough to allow for the 
new name to appear on this 
year's diplomas. 

Whatever the change, if 
any, the spirit of SMC is likely

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/January 21, 1982 

Is eiperimental knowledge superior to expenential know- 
ledge? Indeed, is a reasoned, logical explanation neqessary for 
knowledge, or is that merely the scientific traditional paradigm 
for seeking truth? Experimental knowledge, I maintain, will 
remain necessary for predictabUity and generalizabUity, 
Experiential truth remains unique to each individual and thus 
cannot be used for prediction or generalization with 

Let me backtrack for a moment. Yes, I am saying eternal truth 
cannot be shared efficiently. (Remember, "eternal truth" 
remains— and always will remain— in the realm of experiential 
knowledge, at least until "that which is in part shall be done 
away." I Corinthians 13:9,10). Do eternal realities exist apart 
from our understanding of them? At the moment that an eternal 
principle is grasped by our limited understanding, it is 
relegated to the same domain as our capacity to understand, 
thereby becoming imperfect and thus mortal. 

Someone may say, what about gravity? Does that eternal 
principle cease to exist because I understand it? But wait a 
minute. Just because we're subject to the law of gravity doesn't 
mean we understand it. In fact, there exist theories, such as the 
"graviton theory," to explain gravity, but no one has really 
demonsfrated why an object falls earthward if it is close enough 
to this planet. If we knew exactly what gravity was, we could 
devise ways to no longer be under its subjection; thereby it 
would cease to exist as an absolute, irrefutable, eternal 
principle. {Please note gravity is a secular example of spiritual 
realities such as heaven, angels, God, etc.) 

It seems then that when an eternal reality permits its being 
understood by humans, it then ceases to exist as an eternal 
principle, but is imperfect, in symbolic form perhaps, a shadow 
or skeleton of what cannot be seen or understood. 

Faith then becomes the medium of the will by which we defy 
(or at least leap beyond) logic and reasonable explanation, 
accepting revelation as infallible, and thus coming under its 
power to propagate our belief until it becomes firmly grounded 
in experiential knowledge. 

Experimental knowledge usurps experiential knowledge in 
genejalizability, however, so why do we attempt to share that

which can only be individually understood or attained? 
(Especially doctrines, which have no meaning apart from 
Christ— they're open to anyone's interpretation— and Christ 
has no meaning apart from experiential knowledge, which is 
individually unique— not generalizable.) 

Yet we continue to teach, word for word, our traditional 
doctrines to our church's chydren growing up and to 
non-Adventists in evangelistic meetings. Granted, they're more 
Christ-centered than they used to be, but still have a long way to 
go in being individually understood internally as an inseparable 
part of a walk with Christ. I have found in my own life 
(experientially) that the church's interpretations of scripture, 
handed down for me to "study and understand;" (actually, that 
means to study the Bible until you can understand it the way the 
church 'always has,' which is not the case anyway as the 
church fathers have disagreed before;) have only given me 
something tangible to rebel against, rather than transforming 
my life through the power of God. 

I believe an exposure to the Bible (a thorough, deep, 
thought-provoking search) will be more an influence for good 
than sharing a particular interpretation as the "truth." 

"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready 
always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason 
ofthe hope that is in you with meekness and fear." I Peter 3:15.

Dear Editor; 

After reading the political 
broadside sponsored by 
McKee's in last week's issue, 
I am convinced that they 
should stick to seUing Little 

The ad's prominent display 
of George Washington's pic- 
ture and its use of quotes from 
Washington and James 
Madison are an obvious effort 
to relate what is commonly 
known as Reaganomics to the 
economic policies of 1776. 

Our founding fathers were 


with limiting the powers of the 
federal government— and for 
good reason. Theirs was one 
of the only true examples of 
democracy in the world and 
they intended to keep it that 
way. Furthermore, they didn't 
need a large, powerful govern- 
ment. The U.S. consisted of 


little more than the thirteen 
original colonies populated by 
less than 4 million people and 
a small rural economy. That 
was 200 years ago. Since then, 
the fragile agrarian democracy 
of 4 million people struggling 
for survival has been trans- 
formed into an immense in- 
dustrial supergiant of over 
tU'O-hundred million people. 

Since 1776, we have not 
only been forced to deal with 
new problems like massive 
unemployment, but old ones 
like slavery as well. In the 
process, our country has 
undergone painful but neces- 
sary changes.

the sorry state of our economy 
is no more entirely Reagan's 
"ault than it was Carter's 



astly and futile war 
(Vietnam), two crippling oil 
embargoes (1973 and 1977), 
and increasingly tough trade 
competition from Japan. 

Ahhough 1 doubt any eco- 
nomic plan can overcome 
these basic problems, I d

succeed, however, it will not 
be with an economic theory

Schwartz for president 

TUCSON, Ariz. (CH) - A lot of 
college seniors are sending 
out job applications about 
now, and Jackson T. Schwartz 
is no exception— he just has 
his sights set higher than 

Schwartz, a U. of Arizona 
senior, recently applied for the 
presidency of that school. 

His application was one of 
154 received after John P. 
Schaefer announced his resig- 
nation. But it's certainly 
different from the rest. 

For one thing, Schwartz 
states he would move the 
president's office into one of 
the roundtable areas at one 

end of the Student Union, to 
increase interaction with stu- 
dents. He would also gear 
university programs to "turn- 
ing out complete people" 
instead of just churning out 

To help accomplish this, 
Schwartz would turn the vac- 
ated president's office into a 
student stress center, allowing 
any student carrying a valid 
identification card to use the 
facility for five acts of physical 
rage. Schwartz would also 
require the Student Health 
Center to provide abortions 
and would instruct campus 
police to spend more time 

fighting crimes against peop'' 
and property rather than vic- 
timless crime. ,.

America's future depends 
on how it chooses to use its

researcii program on energy 

I has just been completed, 
■nieodore Besmann, a mem- 
ber of the research team. 
spoke Monday. January 18, to 
Or Hefferlin's Issues in Phy- 
sical Science & Religon class. 
Besmann holds degrees in 
both Chemical and Nuclear 

I Engineering. He is currently 
studying possibilities for 
improving breeder reactor's

problems were explained in a 
slide presentation of the com- 

I mittee's findings. 

The need for energy alter- 
natives was expressed in the 
presentation. Synthetic fuels. 

conservation and development 
of present resources were 
suggestions explored. 

Besmann expressed con 
cem for America's depen 
dence on oil imports. Depen 
dence on other nations for __.

1. It causes, reliance on 
another country for our 

2. Our independence as a 
world power is threatened by 
our dependence. 

3. World peace and stability 
are at stake. 

Not all findings were pessi- 
mistic. Besmann stressed 
positive aspects as well. 

The cost to build new 

energy plants for new energy 
alternatives are lower in the 
long run than present cost 

America can make it's 
future energy efficient but it 
must start today. 

When asked if American s 
will seriously try to follow 
some of the committee s sug 
gestions, Besmann answered 
"Try to guess what the 
government will do. would be 
like looking into a crystal ball 
But to get government to act 
will take a concerned America

conservation is important 

Only by beginning to under

fully understand the need for 
new energy alternatives 

SMC's yeas and n£^s 

What do SMC students like 
or dislike the most at SMC? 
The Southern Accent asked a 
number of students that ques- 
tion and received some 
interesting answers. 

Among the men surveyed, 
the female population ranked 
high on the list of likes. "I 
really love the social oppor- 
tunities, ' ' one young man 
replied. "I'd give you her 
name but 1 don't want to 
embrrass her." Jay Brand 
liked the friendly atmosphere 
but especially the women, 
while Phil Gilbert enjoyed the 
"intimate nature" of SMC. 

Not all students cared for 
that aspect of the social life. 
Rhonda Hallock thought that

stands for Public Display of 
Affection) on campus was

Buch thought the teachers in 
her major (Office Administra- 
tion) were tops, while another 
student said her teachers were 
fantastic. "Half of my really 
good friends are teachers," 
she commented. 

Many of the women inter- 
viewed complained about get- 
ting cold showers in the 
morning but they enjoyed 
other aspects of college life. "I

Superbowl XVI: who will prevail? 


by John Robleon 

Cincinnati's airborne attack 
is why they're going to win. 
With excellent players such as 
rookie wide reciever Chris 
Collingsworth and the lop NFL 
quarterback Kenny Anderson, 
who else can you go with? 

The Bengals' offensive line is 
the key to the game. It's kind 
of tough to move mountains 
like Anthony Munoy who can 
take on two defensive players 
at a time. An example of this 
is the San Diego game when 
nearly every play Munoy had 
his defensive lineman 10 yards 
down field. 

Another rock that is hard to 
stop is Big Pete Johnson. At 
6'3" and 250 lbs., it will take 
the whole San Francisco team 
(including coach and cheer- 
leaders) to bring this monster 
of a man down. With Charles 
Alexander's awakening in the 
playoffs, he will leave the rest 
of the 49ers (if there is 
anything left) dazzled by his 

fast moves as he did to 

Among the other offensive 
threats is Anderson's uncanny 
ability to run with the ball. As 
the second leading rusher on 
the team and the top rushing 
quarterback in the NFL. San 
Francisco's defense is going to 
have headaches from the 
many threats in the Bengals' 

Besides having an excellent 


offense and coach, the 
Bengals' defense will claw the 
49ers to their doom. Montana 
will get many tastes of the 
astrofurf as Ross Browner and 
the rest of the defensive line 
spring on the unfortunate 
quarterback. Notre Dame will 
be looking very promising to 
him after a defensive lineman 
allows him to stand up at the 
end of the game. 
If, and I do mean if, Montana 

does manage to throw a pass, 
Riley. Le Claim, and Breeden 
will be waiting for his hastily 
thrown footballs. 

But there is a problem, and 
that is Mr. Solomon of the 
49ers. His clipping, oh I I 
mean blocking, abilities are 
astounding. In the game 
against the New York Giants, 
he chased a play 10 yards just 
to clip (I'm sorry, block). 

However, even with Solomon 

the 49ers haven't got , 
chance. Also, the loss to th. 
49ers^ in regular seal 
doesn t mean a thing The 
Bengals aren't intimidated bv 
such nonsense. They are 
ready to receive those Super 
Bowl rings right now. 
So as a loyal fan of the 
Bengals and living ten miles 
from the stadium. I believe 
that the Cincinnati Bengals 
will play havoc on the 49ers 


A commitment for always 
deserves the artistic design 
and hand finished quality of 
a fine engagement watch. A 
beautifiil tradition yon 've 
come to expect from 

5953 Braiiii-rd Road 

The 49ers in the Super 
Bowl? All year long people 
have been saying, "They are 
not that good; they just don't 
know it." But as the year wore 
on they kept beating the big 
teams. Now they are going to 
the Super Bowl. Linger over 
that thought. Two years ago 
the Nincrs won two games and 
lost 14. Now they are Cham- 
pions of the N.F.C. 

When you tiy to figure out 
why the big turn around 
happened, you think of Joe 
Montana and the exceptional 
year he had, along with play- 
ers like Fred Dean. Ronnie 

Elaborate plot falls 

STANFORD. Calif. (CH) - The 
scheme was flawlessly de- 
signed, the plans carefully 
laid, the disguises cleverly 
done. Everything, in fact, was 
ready for 14 Stanford U. 
students, several alumni, an 
assortment of athletes, stu- 
dent politico types, resident 
advisers and a former cheer- 
leader to pull off the heist of 
the year. 

They were going to steal the 
axe, that renowned annual 
trophy of the Stanford-U. of 
California Berkeley football 

The California Bears 1980 
gridiron victory had ensconced 
the trophy in that school's 
athletic department. But after 
posing as representatives of a 
major sports publication, and 
then convincing Cal's sports 
information director to bring 
the axe out for a ceremonial 
picture, the Stanford students 
planned to create a diversion 
(a lover's quarrel) that would 
allow a nimble-fingered fresh- 

Lott, Jack Reynolds and 
Lawrence Fillers. But if you 
stop there you haven't found 
the answer. 

I would venture to say the 
reason is Bill Walsh, the coach 
of the San Fransico 49ers. 
Walsh is a man who draws up 
his play book according to his 
opponent, narrowing down the 
number of different plays but 
increasing the options off 
those he selects. He gets his 
kicks out of stringing together 
outrageous and unexpected 
football plays, and he was at 
his creative best for four 
minutes and three seconds of 
the NFC championship 

With the 49ers trailing by six 
points with less than five 
to go, Walsh figured 
was expecting a pass 
ana so he mixed in running 
plays, using a "washed up" 
running back named Lenvil 

Dallas ' 

man to grab the axe and take 

After picking up interfer- 
ence from four large men 
dressed casually as joggers! 
he was to convey the prize to a 
waiting motorcycle team, 
which would pass it on to a 
waiting driver, who would 
pass it on to another motor- 
cycle team which would, well 
you get the idea. The finale 
would have been a triumphant 
carrying of the sacred axe into 
Stanford Stadium on game 

The scheme went as plan- 
ned until the moment came for 
the sports information direct- 
or's staff to produce the axe. 
It was then discovered that it 
had been sent to a local trophy 
shop for cleaning and refiirb- 

Exit, stage left: a group of 
very disappointed would-be 
thieves, leaving behind a 
puzzled SID, an equally con- 
hised photographer and their 
dreams of stealing the axe 

Elliott whom he had activated 
only nine days prior to the 
game. The result was Elliott's 
picking up consecutive gains 
of6, n, and 7yards — 31 yards 
total on the final drive to lead 
the 49ers to the winning score. 
And so Bill Walsh had beaten 
the innovative Tom Landry at 
his own game. 

When it comes down to 
picking who will win the Super 
Bowl, one guess is as good as 
another. The Bengals too have 
a super coach in Forrest Gregg 
and their quarterback has 
walked off with MVP honors, 
and has been named the NFL 
player of the year. 

But despite these facts, I find 
myself having confidence in 
Montana, who has built a 
reputation as a crafty practi- 
tioner rarely making a 
mistake. He doesn't have the 
strongest arm in the NFL, but 
he has developed great poise 

and quickness and the abili 
to make the big play. 
Another key factor to co 
sider is that San Fran led the 
NFL this year in forcing 
turnovers. In the NFC cham- 
pionship game they didn'l 
quite follow their format, but 
despite turning the ball overt( 
Dallas 6 times, they went on t( 
win. They bent, they stag, 
gered and they made enough 
mistakes to get steam— rol- 
led— but they still won. 

In closing. San Fran has 
beaten too many good teams 
and now whether people want 
to believe it or not — they 
for real. They are in the Super 
Bowl, facing Cincinnati— Bill 
Walsh's present team against 
Bill Walsh's former team- 
and his present

■They did everything together. 
■ It was not uncommon to see 
I them walking side by side 
I through the universe discuss- 
I ing the arrangement of galax- 
I ies, or to see them sitting on a 
I grassy hillside overlooking the 
I City talking, planning, shar- 
ling. They loved each other, 
1 Michael and Lucifer. 
Because of their great love, it 
is a mystery how their friend- 
ship was broken. Lucifer be- 
Igan to question the authority 
1 and position of his best 
[Friend. Why wasn't he called 
J into the councils of God? He 
|could do things as well as — 
better than-Michael! He 
I should be like the Most High! 

Questions festered into doubt 
which burst into insurrection. 

"He has done all 
that is possible...' 

The peaceful atmosphere of 
heaven was shattered by war. 
War hurts and scars and 
separates friends— even in 
cosmic battles. Lucifer and his 
rebellious followers fought 
against Michael and His loyal 

followers, but they lost. With 
tears streaming down His 
face, the Prince of Love cast 
Lucifer from heaven. 
Millenniums rolled on and 
the two grew farther and 
farther apart. Things hadn't 
changed much. Lucifer still 
wanted to run his own life, he 
wanted it his way. The love for 
his Friend was now gone and 
he raged war on everything 
that bore His name— nature. 
Scripture, people— trying to 
destroy, or change or pervert 
them. He seemed to be 
successful. Michael watched 
the centuries grind on with 
tear-dimmed eyes that fore- 
saw Lucifer's end. 

The history of sin is now 
concluding. For one last time 
the two once friends meet for a 
final battle Satan, his eyes 
gleaming in defiance, looks 
over the vast army of men and 
angels that wanted things as 
he did. He sees the billions 
that wanted to have it their 
way, to run and rule their own 
lives, and he marches them 
into position around the City. 

Michael, too, looks on in 
broken-hearted sympathy. He 
has done all that is possible for 
those outside, but they refus- 
ed His help. His mind is far 
from the battle scene sur- 
rounding Him. He is not 
concerned for the outcome of 

[Origin of conveniences 

this battle, for it was decided 
long ago on a lonely hill in 
Palestine. His mind is on 
those who refused Him. His 
mind is on Lucifer. 

A signal is given. The 
wicked rush the City to des- 
troy it and fire falls from 
Heaven to consume them and 
their sin forever. As the fire 
bums, the righteous, the ones 
who had chosen to submit to 
the leadership of Christ, turn 
their gaze upon the newly 
crowned King. He sits nobly 
on His throne, crown of victory 
on His head, scepter of ruler- 
ship in His hand and tears 
tumbling down His face. 


Dr. Heinrich 

iBrummenthaler and the 
ISociety for Optimal Research 
right, Philo Remington 
land Henry Ford are two of the 
Imost notorious frauds in the 
■history of modern science. 

"For years it was commonly 
Iheld that Remington and Ford 
great inventors," 
I Brummenthaler recently 

Istated, "but optimal re- 
I searchers both in Europe and 
■ica now have solid evi- 
|dence to the effect that their 
3-called inventions to a large 
I extent were the products of 
I natural causes." 

Brummenthaler is highly 
I critical of what he calls the 
I western technological naivete. 
I "It is ridiculous to think that 
I Remington, a simple peasant 
I from Ohio, suddenly should 
I have come up with such a 
I radically new concept as a 
1 typewriter," he continued. "It 
• nothing less than astound- 
ig that educated people 
I should fall for simplistic re- 
I ductions of that nature." 

According to Dr. 

I brummenthaler, optimal re- 
search has established that 
I the basic units of the type- 
I writer were developed by 
natural causes in a peat bog 
south of Pittsburg. Peat, iron 
I °^e. compost and various 
other elements have evidently 
reacted chemically in a way 
"ot fully understood, but 
whLch. quite effectively, pro- 
ved Remington with a pro- 
"aential discovery. 

^^"lington must have 

stumbled upon this incredible 

jevice on one of his frequent 

I '•"""ng trips and made a 

^rtune by palming it off as a 

I ^.^'^ntific invention," Dr. 

'^mmenthaler charges. He 

I ,.^'s that this is the only 

J^ofy which can account for 

1 "',"^st spots on Remington's 

St model. 

When it comes to Henry 
Ford, the Swiss professor calls 
him "the greatest perpetrator 
of scientific fraud this worid 
has ever seen." He claims 
that American optimal re- 
searchers finally have called 
the bluff. 

Information long hidden in 
the files of the Ford Motor 
Company and the Michigan 
Historical Society is supposed 
to prove that Ford certainly 
did not invent the automobile. 
"People not used to scientific 
thinking do not seem able to 
exercise their critical faculties 
if a great name is involved," 
says Dr. Brummenthaler. 

According to the Society for 
Optimal Research, the various 
components of the automobile 
were years in the making, 
again largely through natural 
causes. Information derived 
from the colonial archives of 
Detroit indicates that the great 
Ottawa war chief Pontiac. 
during the siege of Detroit in 
1763. tried to buy the freedom 
of captured Chippewa chief in 
return for a carburator. Com- 
mander Henry Gladwin at the 
Detroit fort took the device, 
but refused to release the 

Brummenthaler is con- 
vinced that Gladwin left the 
carburator in the fort when he 
left, and that this was where 
Henry Ford found it. The pro- 
fessor charges that Ford tried 
to cover this up. but that 
General Motors decided to 
shame him by dedicating a 
line of its cars to the great 

Apart from the carburator, 
optimal researchers have not 
been able to pin-point the 
discovery of the other com- 
ponents of the automobUe. 
They claim that the piston rod 
was well known among the 
Incas before Cortez, but they 
cannot account for how Ford 

was made aware of this. 

When it comes to the body 
itself, Dr. Brummenthaler 
believes Henry Ford found it 
in an abandoned mine shaft in 
the early 1890's. where it 
probably had developed quite 
spontanously as a result of a 
severe thunder storm. 

Other optimal researchers 
disagree. They attach more 
significance to an 18th-century 
frontier diary left by a close 
friend of Indian agent George 
Croghan wherein the writer 
claims to have seen the 
Shawnee warrior chief 
Hokolosqua (otherwise known 
as chief Cornstalk) ride around 
in a vehicle which may very 
well have been a primitive 

These researchers point to 
the fact that Buffalo droppings 
and prairie grass in a thunder 
storm can react with almost 
nuclear intensity. "We cer- 
tainly cannot preclude the 
spontaneous emergence of the 
entire automobile, ' ' one 
expert says. 

Brummenthaler, disagree- 
ing with this view, believes it 
would be more correct to work 
on the theory of independent 
development of the various 
components and give Ford the 
credit of having put it all 
together. "But. of course, 
starting out with all the parts, 
that was hardly more than 
putting together a jig-saw 
puzzle," Brummenthaler 


Brummenthaler and the 
Society for Optimal Research 
claim that man's blind faith in 
a Creator is responsible for the 
prevalent scientific naivete 
characterising the industria- 
lized narions. For years and 
years people were fed cheap 
and simplistic explanations 
about the origin of the world 
through divine creation. 

Gradually people came to 

"When the love of Christ is enshrined in the heart, like sweet 
fragrance it cannot be hidden. Its holy influence will be felt by 
all with whom we come in contact. The spirit of Christ in the 
heart is like a spring in the desert, flowing to refresh all and 
making those who are ready to perish, eager to drink of the 
water of life. 

Love to Jesus will be manifested in a desire to work as He 
worked for the blessing and uplifting of humanity. It will lead to 
love, tenderness, and sympathy toward all the creatures of our 
heavenly Father's care." 

Steps to Christ, p. 76 

"Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love 
comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that 
they are getting to know him better." 

I John 4:7 The Living Bible 

apply this to technology so 
that by the time Remington 
and Ford presented them- 
selves to the world as 
inventors of astounding new 
machines, people were con- 
ditioned to believe them. 

Concludes Dr. 

Brummenthaler, "When we 


hundred thousand times more 
complicated than an automo- 
bile, evolved by natural causes 
through time, chance and 
necessity, it should be evident 
to all that it would be a small 
thing for nature to crank out a

When this season started, 
most people expected San 
Francisco and Cincinnati to 
finish about where they did 
the previous season — last and 
next to last in their respective 
divisions. What they did was 
become the two best teams in 
Pro football this year. 

Neither team made it to the 
Super Bowl on the luck of a 
semi-good record in a 
mediocre division. They 
finished with the best records 
in their conferences; they beat 
the "best" teams along the 
way, and they beat the "best" 
again in the playoffs. 

The 49ers have been noth- 
ing short of magnificent. Over 
the past 4 months dating back 
to September 17, 1981. they 
have won 14 games while 
losing only one. This includes 
two 7-game winning streaks 
with the loss coming in the 

They have also beat a team 
that many thought would be in 
the Super Bowl this year— 
the Dallas Cowboys. They 
beat the tough Cowboys 45-17 
in the regular season, and to 
silence the critics for good 

by Mike Burks 

they topped Dallas again 28-27 
in the N.F.C. championship 

The Cincinnati Bengals 
have been just about as im- 
pressive, losing only 4 games 
this year. They too have 
played a team twice that many 
thought would make it to the 
Super Bowl this year— the San 
Diego Chargers. Both times 
the Chargers were crushed; 
40-17 in the regular season 
and 27-7 in the title game. 

The 49ers lost only to 
Detroit, Atlanta, and 

Cleveland. The Bengals lost 
only to Cleveland, Houston, 
New Orleans, and San 
Francisco. Neither team lost to 
anybody who made it to the 
playoffs except for the 
Bengals loss to the 49ers, 
21-3. Cleveland is the only 
team that beat both Super 
Bowl teams— and both of 
those games were won by 3 
point margins. 

Both teams are young and 
inexperienced, yet managed 
to beat the experienced. As 
young as they are, both 
coaches are responsible over 
the past 3-4 years for having 
built their teams to what they 

are now. The 49ers and the 
Bengals have the two top 
rated quarterbacks in pro foot- 
ball this year, and both teams 
are making their first trip ever 
to the Super Bowl. 

If these two teams don't 
seem even enough, then con- 
sider the fact that Cincinnati 
scored 54 more points than 
San Francisco in the regular 
season, yet gave up exactly 54 
more points than the 49ers. 

Both teams lost 12 fumbles 
during the season. Anderson 
threw 10 interceptions while 
Montana threw 12 intercep- 
tions (This is understandable 
because over the 16 game 
season Montana threw a total 
of 11 more passes than 

It would be the only fittinE

I stood Dr. Colvin, with a grim

I had a collect long distance call

Well; come to find out he'd 
bummed a ride to Atlanta with

It seems there's this man 
"ving in the year 2000. One 
evening he goes into a

middle of the waiting room 
sees a large machine. On a 
'able in front of the machine is 
? deck of cards and directions 
'"structing the reader to "...

insert it into the machine." He

rumbles softly and then spits 
out another card. Now with 
interest the man grabs it and 
reads: "Five Years Later. You 
will be rich and famous but die 
after a heart attack when your 
business goes bankrupt." 

The man is fascinated. He 
pushes "death averted" 
again. The data card is quickly 
returned. "Ten Years Later. 
You will have a lovely wife and 
two wonderful children, but be 
killed in a plane crash." 

By now the man was totally 
enthralled with the machine 
and continued time and time 
again to push "death aver- 
ted " . He was so involved 
playing with the apparatus he 
failed to notice time rapidly 

Night passed into early 
morning. A barely discemable 
wind swept clouds nearby and 
soon a soft rain silently 
covered the streets. As the 
man continued to play with the 
machine, the clouds broiled 
into a small storm. And at 6

I seriously hope, for several 
reasons, that this arrange-

into a huge cultural defi-

All sophomore theology stu- 
dents need to be sure and take 
the battery of five tests for 
those preparing for the 
ministry. The deadline for 
taking the tests in the Student 
Center Testing office is 
January 25. 
The tests are not threaten- 

ing; rather, they intend to help 
the student better understand 
himself in relationship to the 
professional role of the 
minister. The role of the tests 
is a self-analysis to provide 
insight as to areas of strength 
and weakness, thus making it 
possible to reach for goals of 
improvement where needed. 
The tests have been field 
tested for several years. 

One test strongly recom- 
mended for wives and fiances 
can also be taken along with 
the other five. (By the wife or 
fiance, of course).

Senate met for their Sixth 
regular meeting on January 
25, 1981. Items on the agenda 

be a sub-board, but will have 
full responsibility for the 
policies and organization of 
the radio station. The only 
things not controlled by the 
board are the options to sell or 
shut down the station, or hire 
and fire paid radio personnel. 
Self stressed that the new 
board doesn't imply any major 
changes in policy or program- 
ming, but will act merely as a 
decision-making body which 
may be called on short notice 
to make prompt, needed 
decisions — an ability not avail-

bers are not members of the

The first meeting of the new 
board was held Sunday, 
January 24. The next meeting 
is slated for February 22 at 6 
p.m. in the cafeteria banquet 

included a Phone Committee 
update, a presentation of the 
Elections Manual and a bill 
proposing a name for the 
Snack Bar.

the snack bat should be

lee obse/tyations 

The sign-up for next years' SA officer candidates wiU soon 
end and the campaigning will begin. Listed below are the duties 
up for grabs, the annual salary for each and my evaluation of job 

SA President. $1,400. This job should be scratched off of your 
list of considerations unless you either a) won't be taking many 
hours b) don't mind making poor grades c) want to neglect your 
duties. In other words, this is a job where you earn your keep. 
Some weeks are easier than others, but the tough weeks are 
tough. The president must work closely with school adminis- 
trators and must be able to bring to the student senate the bad 
news time after time that "the faculty voted it down again." 
SA Vice President. Jl.OOO. If you were discouraged by the fact 
that you will have a heavy class load next year and you can't run 
for SA President, why not try the vice president's position. 
There are two ways you can earn your keep, a) if you are 
innovative and constantly ask "what can 1 do now." b) if the 
President is sick for most of the year. Like many assistant 
positions (including the government's) the vice president comes 
as close to a figurehead position as our democratic system 
allows. A better name for the position might be Assistant to the 
Social Activities Director. 

Social Activities Director. $700. Creativity and hard work are 
needed for this position that's an activity of its own. By the time 
one banquet is over, you can get ready for the next one — or 
perhaps start planning for a talent show. The help of some of 
the other SA officers is solicited for this job. Get ready for hard 
work, but — because the title doesn't sound quite as impressive 
as some others — low pay. 

Student Services Director. $700. If the sound of $700 dollars 
seems to you like a lot of money for conducting cookie breaks 
and showing Friday afternoon flicks — go for it. The Student 
Services director has one other responsibility— to find new ways 
to help students. Take that to mean what you will. 
Southern Memories Editor. SI200. One semester of hard work, 
24 hour days and tough leadership are essential for meeting 

deadlines. Photography knowledge is a must; drive is of no less 


Southern Accent Editor. $1600. This is the highest paid job of 

theSAoffices. Forty, fifty, even sixty hours a week on the job is 

not uncommon in order to maintain a well run newspaper. There 

is little room for sluffing. The editor has the privilege of having 

praise whispered in one ear while obscenities are being 

whispered in the other. 

Joiter Editor. $275. If you don't mind a bad start to a busy year, 

becoming Joker editor might be for you. Classes must be 

neglected and sleep ignored for the first two weeks — or two 

months, if you don't student wrath— of school. If the job is well 

managed, you get paid peanuts. If not, you earn more than 


For any SA position to be handled effectively, classes must, at 
times, tak^econd place to your job. Is it worth it? Are we not 
going to school for classroom study? Ah, that's an editorial all

Dear Editor, 

Who does John Robison 
think he is kidding? I can 
understand a person wanting 
to defend their favorite team 
in the Superbowl, but putting 
the other team down at the 
same time is different! 1 think 
that John Robison was show- 
ing very poor taste in his 
article putting down the 
49ers — a very capable football 
team. If they were not, they 
would not have made it to the 

I did not read anything in 
Matt Nafie's article about 
putting the Bengals down. He 
quoted quite a few very 
impressive statistics, also. 1 
suggest, Mr. Robison, that 
vou read his article. You might 


just learn one or two things 
about journalism. 

And what do you mean IF 
Joe Montana does manage to 
throw a pass? That was one of 
the main reasons why they 
made it to the Superbowl this 
year. His great throwing arm 
in the last play of the NFC 
championship game against 

Time Out 

Dallas is whv thev shut down 
Ihe Cowboys 28-27. 

And. Mr. Robison. Solomon 
of the 49ers is a great blocker, 
not clipper, thank you! 

And when the 49ers shut 
down the Bengals in the 
Superbowl, we will see what 
u are talking! 
Meri Porter 

Dear Editor. 

1 am concerned about the 
earrings and slit skirts on 
campus. The women's hand- 
book clearly states that 
earrings and jewelry are not to 
be worn. It also slates that 
modest attire is to be worn. 
Slits are not modest. 

I challenge Ihe adminis- 
tration and faculty to do 
something about this. Our 
school was founded on sound 
standards: lets keep it the way 
it was. Thank you. 

Cindy Torgesen 

Dear Editor. 

We here at Southern Mis- 
sionary College have been 
faced with the task of 
renaming our school. Several 
ideas have been thrown 
around! "Lynn Wood Col- 
lege," "Southeastern Col- 
lege," and "College of the 
South — " just to name a few. 
In light of the task at hand 1 
propose we name the college 
"Southern Military College." 

It seems to be just what 
we've been looking for. First, 
we can keep our initials, 
something "Lynn Wood Col- 
lege," "Southeastern Col- 
lege," and "College of the 
South" do not offer. Second, 
we would have no problem 
raising funds for college. 
We'd have dropped the word 
Missionary and added a word 
whose bottom line means 
strength. Third, our graduates 
would have no problem get- 
ting jobs. They would leave 
our halls with the reputation of 
being disciplined, well-trained 
citizens ready to take on 
America's toughest problems. 

Now there ivouW have to be 
some changes. The adoption 
of rank for instance. President 
Frank Knittel would now be 
known as General Frank 
Knittel. Dean of Students 

Everett Schlisner would now 
be Colonel Everett Schlisner, 
and so on on down to to deans. 
For the men. Captain Evans 
would man the barracks along 
with his counterpart Captain 
Runyan in the women's bar- 

Rank would also serve as a 
means of rewarding chapel 
and worship attendance. How- 
ever, a more considerable hop 
in rank would be given those 
enlisted personnel who 
maintained a high GPA. 

The uniform is another 
necessary change. I'll admit I 
don't particularly like the 
idea, but it does take care of 
the jean war in the mess hall. 

From our new name would 
come a new image. From the 
new image new needs. 
McKee's could add a new line 
producing field rations. Our 
body shop could enlarge to 
include a department to re- 
finish Willy's jeeps and staff 
cars. T'iis in ".irii .vould 

expand the motor pool, (who, 
under the direction of Master 
Sgt. Bill McKinney. will paint 
all the vans drab green and 
the buses will be 

Besides expanding nearly 
every department, the new 
name also has the potential of 
cutting cost! First, heating 
costs could be cut by turning 
the heat off in the barracks 
while the troops are oul in 
their mandatory, one-week-a- 
month survival maneuvers^ 
Second, the money it woul" 
take to tear down Lynn Wood 
and Jones Halls could be 
saved, because the cadets 
could use these structures for 
artillery practice. 

Yes we should name our 
school "Southern Militaiy 
College." If for u" .'J'''^ 
reason, it at least beats Col- 
lege of the South." 

Sincerely Vours.

Educators eet acquainted 

by Maureen Mayden , ^J ■ 

1 Union Educational 
Superintendants came from 
c\er\ conference m the Union 

students this week. The pur- 
pose was to get acquainted 
with the students that will be 
looking for jobs in the next 
year or two. 

The superintendants inter- 
viewed only on Wednesday, 
and went to meetings for their 
benefit on Monday, Tuesday, 
and Thursday. Each of those 
attending the meetings inter- 
viewed an average of 24 to 28 
students on Wednesday. 

To the students, this was a 
mere formality. It was a 
chance to let the educational 
curps of the Southern Union 
know what skills were avail- 
able and to let the students 
meet some of the possible 
future employers of that field. 

Most of the students inter- were seniors, with a 

Almost every superientendant 
commented on the large num- 
ber of potential teachers. 

Elder D. K. Griffith, Dr. 
Nonvida Marshall, and Dr. 
Don Weatherall from the 
office were here all week 
helping with the interviews 
and conducting the meetings. 

This week was not a session 
for hiring. It was merely a 
getracquainted period for the 

students and the educational 
administration of the Southern 
conferences. At this point, 
none of the superintendants 
know of any openings in their 
conferences and could give no 
positive hope to the students. 
However, this does not mean 
that the Southern Union will 
not be hiring any new per- 
sonnel for the next school 
year. It merely means that it is 
too soon to know anything.

Age discrimination: is 23 justifiable? 


I ^/ by Dean Schll 


Dean Schllsner 

It seems that throughout our 
lives we have always been 
presented with 21 as being 
that magical age when a 
person is regarded as a re- 
sponsible adult, when he takes 
full consequence for his 
actions, and — in legal terms — 
when contracts are binding 
and full punishment is dealt 
through the law. 
But here at Southern 
Missionary College this is not 
the case when discussing resi- 
dence hall living. The College 
bulletin states that "living in a 
college residence hall with its 
daily 'give and take' prepares 
the student to meet life with 
equanimity, teaches respect 
for the rights and opinions of 
others, and offers a first-hand 
experience in adjusting to a 
social group." 

The bulletin continues to say 
that to assure the students of 
this beneficial experience, it is 
required to live in the dorm if

But where does the beneficial 
experience come in the dorm 
where a student must cope 
with real life— dealing with a 
financial budget, and forming 
your own life style? We under- 
stand that the reasons behind 
the present 23 age rule is to 
mold and guide students into 
an Adventist lifestyle. 

But don't you think that by 
the time a student reaches 20 
or 21 years of age that he will 
begin to regard the regula- 
tions of dormitory life as being 
juvenile, since he/she is now 
regarded as a responsible 
adult by society? These 
restrictions could even be 
more detrimental than benefi- 
cial. For example, TVs aren't 
allowed in the dorm rooms. A 
responsible adult of 20 or so 
who enjoys relaxing with a TV 
in the evenings might be 
tempted to break this rule, as 
he or she could enjoy this 
relaxation if in an apartment 
off campus. 

A random survey revealed 
that slightly over half the 
students here have lived on 
their own for a substantial 
period of time or during the 
summers, feeling that this 
type of housing is more 

beneficial— particularly in 
monetary value. This school 
faces a problem of decreasing 
enrollment with one of the 
major causes being lack of 
adequate finances. The sav- 
ings of living off campus 
present a brighter picture for

Southern Missionary College 
is primarily a 4-year liberal 
arts boarding school. Unless 
you are 23 years of age or 
older, you are required to live 

in a residence hall. My posi- 
tion on this issue is that 23 is 
not too old an age limit to 
permit off-campus living. 
T he mainritvnf students who 

aticnd SMC between the 
ages nt IS and l\ . Most 
graduates arc IZ years of age 
or less. Our constituents are 
drawn mainly from boarding 
academies and are familiar 
with the SDA residence hall 
system, thus making the 
college residence living expe- 
rience quite smooth. 

Currently SMC operates four 
residence halls — Thatcher. 
Talge, Jones and the nurses' 
residence hall on the Orlando 
campus. The combined capac- 
ity of these four buildings can 
house 1,450 students. As of 
this date, the number of 
students living in residence is 
approximately 1 ,260, which 
shows we are not operating at 
full capacity. If we were to 
lower the age limit to 22 the 
potential group of students 
who could live out of the 
residence halls would be 

approximately IbO. If this 
entire 22-year-old group 
moved out, plus the 70 who 
are 23 (or older), we would 
face some financial difficultv. 

From the above facts a 
person can quickly conclude 
that one of the major reasons 
for keeping the age limit for 
non-residence hall living at 23 
years of age involves finances. 
The overhead cost of operat- 
ing a residence hall designed 
and equipped lo handle '^00 
people is approximately the 
same whciher there are 350 or 
500 students in the residcute 

There are other factors in- 
volved in this issue such as 
controlled environment. Due 
to our Christian philosophy 
and commitment to the 
Seventh-day Adventist life- 
style, we design and operate 
our residence hall program to 
enhance and perpetrate these 
idea. Thus, we firmly believe 
that residence hall living is a 
viable and important pan of 
the total educational package 
we offer at SMC. 

Wolff gets educated 

Slow but sure wins the race, 
and a college degree for a man 
willing to wait 24 years. 

Harvey Wolff of Wantagh. 
N.Y., probably set a record 
recently when he received a 
bachelor of business adminis- 
tration degree from Hofstra 
University. Wolff began his 
education in 1957 and, taking 
only two years off, finished up 
in 1981. 

He started as an electrical 
engineering major, moved to 
the education department 
when deciding to become a 
teacher, then settled in 
business. The final choice was 
more in keeping with his 
career— Wolff works as a con- 

tracts administrator for the 
Bulova Systems and Instru- 
ments Corporation. 

During his 24-year student 
career, Wolff picked up 150 
credits— well over the 128 
needed for graduation. He 
also managed to prove some- 
thing to his two sons (ages 16 
and 18) and to his own father, 
Wolff says he showed his sons 
"that whatever goal you sci. 
you can accomplish your 
objective regardless of how 
long it takes, provided you 
have determination." As w 
his father, he disproved the 
elder WolfTs theory that he d 
never amount to anything, 
because he lacked education.

During the early part of the 
fall semester a sailing class 
limited to 8 will be offered on 
Friday afternoons and Sun- 
days. This will include exper- 
ience in both small and cruis- 
ing size craft. 

Also for the fall session a 
class in rock climbing will be 
offered and will progress from 
the campus mountains to the I 
cliffs of Lookout Mountain. 
Each of these courses will 
have a surcharge in addition to 
tuition if taken for credit. 
Those taking the courses for 


Second semester a course in 
snow skiing will be offered. 
The class will meet weekly 
until the spring break for 
films, ski techniques and 
conditioning work. At that 
time a school sponsored Colo-

dale. All are welcome for this 
trip, (hopefully for about 
$300.00) though the class 
members will receive morning 
instruction on the slopes. The 
spring break schedule for next

Dear Editor, 

I would like to address this theater attendance, TV watch- As a student in an educa- 

letter towards the subject of ing. jewelry, church attend- tional institution, and espec- 

rules. It seems to me that we 
have a problem that needs to 
be resolved. Let me use a 
story to illustrate it: 

A three-year-old boy comes 
into the kitchen where his 
mother is cooking supper. As 
he stands at his mother's side, 
he sees the bright red glow 
coming from a burner on the 
stove. In fascination, he 
reaches out. towards the burn- 
ing coil. His mother, seeing 
what her son is about to do. 

any othe 
ted rules. What I am trying to 
say is that it is past time that 
we look at the principles 
behind the rules. 

I'm sure that there are valid 
reasons underlying the reg- 
ulations that we hold here. 
Unfortunately, our answer to 
most individuals questioning 
the regulations has been that 
"those are the rules and that 
is why we do them." 

This response is simile 

slaps his hand first and tells the ignorance of the Jewish 

' to touch 

nation when confronted with 
the principles set forth by 
Jesus Christ. It was easier to 
do the rules than to under- 
stand them. 

ially a Christian institution, I 
would like to challenge admin- 
istrators and fellow students 
alike to THINK. It is not 
enough to quiet the objectors 
by handing them a student's 
handbook of rules. We need 
to understand WHY we do the 
things that we have to do. 

In order to comprehend 
fully the necessity for rules, 
we must understand the un- 
derlying principles BEFORE 
we burn our hands in ignor- 
ance. Only then, after we 
have used our minds to think, 
can we really say that we have 
learned anything!

This past week Americans 
observed both the one-hun- 
dredth birthday of their thirty-

address on the state of

The conjuncture of these two 
events has provided a catalyst 
for comparing Ronald Reagan 
with Franklin Roosevelt. The 
most obvious conclusions cite 
the sharp contrast between 
them, a conclusion not without 
warrant considering the cur- 
rent president's renunciation 
of the policies of the past fifty 
years. On the other hand there

so important for his success 
thus far. This ability to turn on 
for the red light of the camera 
seems particularly pro- 
nounced when he is delivering 
a prepared script. Quite pro- 
bably the greatest impressions 
from his recent address were 
left not by the substance of his

The "New Deal" that 
emerged was not the product 
of a grand philosophical 
vision; rather, it developed 
piecemeal out of attempts to 
meet the various problems 
plaguing the nation. 

The unifying conception 
that finally brought all these 
acts together and gave the 
New Deal its defining feature 
was that the federal govern- 
ment had a responsibility to 
ensure its citizens a minimum 
standard of living and the 
chance for a job. It marked the

By contrast, Reagan

Roosevelt had no plan for 
solving the country's woes, 

itself and got America started 
on the road to recovery. Will 
Reagan fare as well in' his 
efforts? At present one must 
be doubtful, but as Reagan 
repeatedly says, it will take 
more than a few months to 
undo years of damage. 

1 would suggest that his 
chances for success would 
improve if he took two lessons 
from Roosevelt. First, Reagan 
should temper his ideological 
commitment with Roosevel- 
tian pragmatism — become 
open to alternatives outside 
his current philosophy. Being 
doctrinaire may suit a theo- 
logian, but it rarely is an asset 
for a president. 

Second, Reagan should re- 
consider ■ his assumptions 
about the limitations of 
government. Not that a 
trimming of unnecessary 
regulatory agencies and a 
cutback of some services is 
undesirable, but regardless of 
our fondest wishes to return to 
an era of small government 
and local control, the realities 
of modern life simply do not 
permit it. 

Reagan would better serve 
the nation if he would replace 
his unremitting attacks on the 
evils of big government with 
an approach stressing the 
positive features of govern- 
ment albeit in reduced form. 
In so doing Reagan might well 
take his place among 
America's notable leaders 
who creatively met the pro- 
blems afflicting our nation.

J °oth feels too much empha- 

I ^ IS placed on the negative 

message like "You stold my 
heart- N. Bonaparte." His 
wife, home alone with scream- 
ing kids, a sick dog and 
back-up plumbing, probably 
began putting the finishing 
touches on the Waterloo cam- 

And then there was Noah. 
Being quite a bit more of a 
romanticist than Napoleon, he 
took his wife for a very 
memorable cruise on the Love 
Boat, probably the first ever 
recorded. I must admit he did 
go a little overboard with his 

Henry VIII was original, to 
say the least. When Valen- 

tme's Day came each year, he 
avoided buying costly pre- 
sents by simply getting a new 
wife. In the long run. his 
stinginess sort of caught up 
with him, but the plan 
definitely worked for a while. 
That is, until all his invest- 
ments banded together and 
demanded alimony and 
chocolates every month. 

And, speaking of origi- 
nality. William Shakespeare 
was a prime example. Always 
a shy lad, he found expressing 
himself extremely difficult, 
whether in writing or speak- 
ing. He did manage to slip his 
wife a note once which read, 

"How do 1 love thee? Let me 
count the ways." As far as we 
know, this one experience was 
so unnerving that he never 
wrote anything else. 

Being more current, do any 
of you happen to know how 
Jerry Falwell celebrates 
Valentine's Day? Well, last 
year he bought his wife a 
long-sleeved nightshirt with 
Norman Lear's picture on the 
front. (For those of you who 
are interested, the Campus 
Shop is now carrying these.) I 
believe he's planning to be a 
bit more conventional this 
year though. 

Last but never least. Steven 

Dickerhoff. In addition to his 
New Year's predictions, which 
he thoughtfully published last 
week, he really did make some 
New Year's resolutions. I 
managed to procure the mile- 
long list and discovered that 
he intends, if he ever gets 
married, to buy his wife a 
bright-red heart-shaped 

washer every February 14. He 
really does have a method to 
his madness. 

Anyhow, everyone has their 
own unique way of expressing 
themselves. After all, as some 
anonymous philosopher once 
said, "It's the thought that 

news and hopes to change this 
with the introduction of 
reports from the dorms and 
features about local individ- 
uals. This trend will not ignore 
the controversial issues which 
Both intends to attack head on 
to get the facts that let the 
people know. 

Both also wants to improve 
on the religion section of the 
paper by keeping it more than 
just trivia, but yet not too 
theologically heavy. 

About the Accent, the 26 
year-old candidate says, "I'm 
committed to making it the 
best it possibly can be." 

Smith would like to see more 
features and student /faculty 
input represented in the pages 
of the new Accent. She plans 
on working towards making 
the paper a balance of local 
and world issues while keep- 
ing it interesting and appeal- 
ing for the students as well. 

Smith intends to maintain the 
consistent editorials estab- 
lished this year and looks to 
the job to provide valuable 
experience which she will be 
able to use in future profes- 
sional capacities. 

Twenty-one year-old Bridget 
Knox, a freshman Art major, 
aspires to be the editor of the 
1982-83 Southern Memories. 
Knox conceded that the job 
has been a dream since her 
high school days when she 
participated in the preparation 

of the yearbook. She would 
like to see, and will try to 
include photographs of events 
from the previous spring 
semester for the benefit of 
returning students. Knox also 
intends to make efficient use 
of all available space and 
include thorough coverage of 
events at the Orlando campus. 
"A memorable book with a 
variety of faces and other 
shots," is her 'goal as she 
makes the attempt at being

As editor of next year's 
Joker, Jon Larrabee's goal will 
be to. "Get a magazine pub- 
lished that is accurate, infor- 
mative and quickly

make sure a quality publica- 
tion is produced, paying close 

attention to the elimination of 
all repetition. Larrabee en- 
sures us that there will be no 
blank spaces where missing 
pictures should have been. 

"The Joker." Larrabee 
stated, "is not on the classy, 
finesse level as the annual,"

"contain information, look 
decent and get out quickly."

SMC focuses on 
Black History Week 

I Missionary College 
and ihc Afro-American Club is 
sponsoring Black History 
Week from February 8-13. 
The nation-wide celebration 
was set aside by the U.S. 
Congress in 1929 to emphasize 
black history and culture, 
according to Everett 

Schlisner, Dean of Students. 
Special programs include a 
chapel talk by J. Paul Monk on 
Thurday. vespers by CD. 
Brooks of the Breath of Life 
television program and a 
musical program by the 
Oakwood College Choir on 
Sabbath, February 13. 
An innovative feature this 
year was the opening chapel 
talk on Tuesday by Dr. Frank 
Knitiel. "This is the first time 
a TUin-black speaker has start- 
ed Black History Week." says 
Dr. Lorenzo Grant, coordinat- 
or for the week and sponsor of 
the Afro-American Club. "But 
we think Dr. Knittel is a fitting 

person be 

example of good leadership. 
He has sent the signal that 
SMC is for all Seventh-day 
Adventists, regardless of race 
or nationality." 
Black History Week is a 
relatively new event at SMC. 
No blacks were allowed until 
1964 when the Civil Rights Act 
guaranteed equal rights for 
everyone. The first black lo 
attend SMC in hs 73-year 
hisiory was a village student 
in 1965. according to 
Schlisner. Today black enroll- 
ment stands at 101. 

Dr. Grant has high hopes for 
Black History Week. "We 
want it to accomplish more," 
he says. "In the past this week 
tended to alienate non-blacks, 
but we want to take a step 
forward. Race relations have 
been improving at SMC. but 
we need to go beyond the level 
of society. We >vant to reach

Jordanoff displays Tamburitzans 

The internationally famous 
Tamburitzans of Duquesne 
University under the artistic 
direction of Nicholas Jordanoff 
will be appearing at Southern 
Missionary College on Feb- 
ruary 13. with show time 
beginning at 8 p.m. in the 
Physical Education Center. 

For the past 45 years, this 
outstanding group of 40 young 
entertainers has presented 
concerts throughout the 
United States and Canada, 
occasionally making a foreign 
tour to such places as South 
America, the Soviet Union or 
Eastern Europe. These talent- 

ed college students . 

full scholarships for their 
participation in the group and 
perform more than 100 shows 
each season. 

A Tamburitzan is a typical 
American college student with 
an exceptional amount of 
musical talent and enough 
ambition to make an unusual 
effort to secure a college 
education. His is a dual 
personality. As a performer on 
the stage he is an enthusiastic 
and lively personality who 
sings in a dozen languages, 
dances as many routines and 
plays an amazing array of 
instruments. As a scholar, he 
is a serious academic-minded 
student applying himself 
conscientiously to the task of 

The Tamburitzans' produc- 
tion has been linked to an 
European musical tour. In 
hundreds of colorful and 
authentic costumes, the stu- 
dents perform with brilliance; 
forming a kaleidoscopic 
impression of the most fasci- 
nating and romantic parts of 
the Balkans and neighbormg 
lands. Dances, rituals, songs, 
costumes, folklore-all unfold 
in a brilliant array of color and 
high-speed precision. 

This group possesses the 
remarkable faculty of sum- 
ming up in a single 
performance the spirit of an 
entire people. The enthusiasm 
of a Tamburitzan performance 
is exhilarating. Language is no 
barrier; the situation enacted

Dig It 
Hydrants installed 


Since the last of January, 
workmen have been digging 
UD the ground in the mall so as 
,0 tap into a water main. Their 
job is to connect a new pipe to 
tlie main for tlie installation of 
a new first hydrant. The new 
hydrant will be placed up 
near Wright Hall, with the 
possibility of another one 
installed by the SMC sign. 
The grounds department 

contracted the work out to a 
Chattanooga company. The 
work has been delayed 
because of the rain, but the 
grounds department is hope- 
ful that the job will be com- 
pleted soon. 

The fire h.vdrant is being 
installed because there is not 
one near to Wright Hall for 
use in case of a fire.

When we were small, we loved our mommies, our daddies, 
our brothers and sisters and the cute girl down the street. On 
Valentines Day we gave our mommies crooked hearts cut from 
red construction paper; our daddies received valentines cards 
that our mommies bought us to give him; and, if we were bold, 
the girl down the street was given a little valentine with the 
picture of cupid on the front smiling and uttering those stirring 
words, "Be Mine." 

Times have changed. Now we love cars, clothes, New York 
and flider (but always under 21) girls wearing Izod sweaters and 
skirts with slits down the side. 

General Motors tells us we love baseball, hotdogs, apple pie 
and Chevrolet. 

The Greeks have the right idea when they use several 
different words for different levels of what we call love. 

As old as love is, it still is the topic of much discussion. Some 
call love a feeding. Others, more logically oriented, call love a 

Christ said, "Love your enemies." Bailey calls love, "The 
sweetest joy, the wildest woe." "God is love," says Ellen 
White. "Love is afi ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by 
expenses," commented Lord Dewar. 

Love is necessary. For man to be a complete person, he must 
love. What's more, the more love he gives, the more he has. 

Love is like nothing else the world has ever seen. It is 
powerful, convincing, mysterious. 

Here's to the half-naked little guy with the bow and arrows. 
May he remain a good aim.

but perfect love casteth

eKcepllon of vacation and exam weeks. Opinio 

Dear Editor: 

' Last week the Accent made 
reference to a statement made 
by Mr. Joe Robertson, 
vice-presidential candidate in 
the SA elections. While I'm 
not for or against Mr. Robert- 
son, I feel it's compulsory 
that I dispute his statements 
concerning the SA senate. 

Mr. Robertson said "...Sena- 
tors ... need to solicit more 
personal feedback from the 
students ..." As a senator. I 
try to talk to my constituents. 
We may not talk about any 
issue directly, but I do have an 
idea of their general opinion in 
relevant issues. 

I do not knock every other 
week on all the doors of my

hall because, besides the fact 
that I am a senator (a volun- 
teer in a non-paying position), 
I work and go to school. I 
suggest that Mr. Robertson, 
since he feels that there's not 
enough interaction between 
the students and senators, 
take the initiative and go talk 
to his senator personally. 

Mr. Robertson also contin- 
ued on to suggest that" ... 
(Senators) keep their own 
opinions to a minimum in 
senate meetings," Implying 
that meetings are full of 
selfish egotistical opinions. 

All persons express them- 
selves in a way particular to 

each, however, that doesn^, 
mean that the nucleus „ ^

As a senator I can attest t.

Advanced technology: will it soon doom life? 


by Jetl Havrof) 


The last century has seen 
unprecedented technological 
advancement. Wc have in- 
creased our speed of com- 
munication by a factor of 10 x 
10,000.000; our speed of travel 
by 100: our speed of data 
handling by 1,000.000; our 
energy resources by 1 ,000; our 
power of weapons by 
1.000.000; our ability to con- 
trol diseases by something like 
100; and our population 
growth by 1.000 times what it 
was a few thousand years ago. 

The rapidity and magnitude 
of these changes have left us 
unprepared to face some of 
the possible consequences. 

One of the most imminent 
dangers is that of nuclear 
escalation. In at least two 
major political crises, nuclear 
alternatives were considered. 
MacArthur wanted to use 

and John Kennedy is said to 
have estimated the probability 
of nuclear exchange during 
the Cuban missile crisis to be 
about 25 percent. 

The fact is that man has 
within his power the ability to 
destroy all life on earth. As 
long as we have no adequate 
stabilizing peace-keeping 

structures, this will remain a 

Another danger is that of 
food shortage. From 1957 to 
1977. an area larger than the 
State of Ohio was lost to 
agricultural use because of 
urban expansion, energy pro- 
duction, highway construction 
and the like. In Florida all the 
prime farmland will be put to 

other uses by the end of the 
century if current trends 

How long will it be before 
we reach the limit? A major 
study has predicted only 50 
years until population 
seriously overtakes food 

Although technology has 
done much to help us. there 
are certain problems which we 
now face which seem almost 
unsurmountable. Were time 
to last and were the human 
race left to its own fate, I find 
it likely that we would destroy 
ourselves before a technolo- 
gical Utopia, where science 
finally solved all men's pro- 
blems, was formed. 

ment in recent history con- 
cerned with these two areas, 
technology and population 
levels, is The Global 2000 
Report to the President (c. 
1980), commissioned by 
President Carter. The policies 
of this document can be seen 
in the record of the U.S. 
government in the past decade

Saturday nighl is the focal 
point of tlie week. Most people 
forget about school and plan 
on doing something to relax. 
For the guys, this relaxation 
sometmes includes the 
company of a girl. But, more 
times than not. it's hard to get 
the two sexes together. 

For instance, last week three 
of my friends and I were 
planning on all getting dates 
and going on a group date. We

background, we drove off into

Economic forecasts for the 
world are primarily influenced 
by the investment decisions 
which affect three areas: the 
growth rate of the more 
advanced sector, the rate of 
technological change and the 


Our first stop was Iceland. 
We figured on trying our luck 
with some non-SMC girls. As 
we stood in the line to get in, 
two of my friends saw a couple 
of the giris they had asked out 
with some other guys. Struck 
with a sudden attack of 
depression, they were in no 
mood to skate. 

We Just couldn't understand 
what would make girls want to 
go out with guys like that. One 
was a "Theo" and the other 
one was from another 
country— Michigan. 

We complained our way over 
to Holiday Bowl. Picking up 
our reserve number, we sat 
down to wan. As we sai there

2000 assumes policies of low 
growth, technological control 
and a lack of infrastructure 
For "example. Global 2000 
explicitly excludes the 
development and implemen- 
tation of a fusion energy 
program (although three blue 
ribbon review boards have 
recommended immediate 

development of fusion energy 
production plants, under the 
present economic policies, 
these recommendations have 
been ignored). 

Global 2000 excludes 
dramatic agricultural break- 
throughs, a policy which 
dooms large areas of the world 
to famine and starvation. 
Infrastructure development in 
LDC's (transportation net- 
works, communications, 
health care delivery, water 
and sewage systems and 
energy delivery) will be 
negligible because invest- 
ments in such projects need 
long pay-back periods making 
them not immediately 
profitable. This is despite such 
examples as South Korea 
where subsequent economic 
growth has paid back the 
investment many times over. 
These examples refleci ihe

Murphy trains 
for a record 

Time Out 

Leading Scorers 

"AA" statistics not available at press time. 

It is be]ieved that the sport 
of bicycling actually started 
with a Frenchman named M. 
de Sivrac when in 1690 he first 
appeared on the streets of 
Paris, riding a crude, two- 
wheeled contrivance. In time, 
millions upon millions of 
people throughout the world 
took up bicycle riding for 
necessity, recreation and 
sports fame. 

Down through the years, 
bicycle racing has produced 
many remarkable champions 
whose names will glow forever 
in the history of this sport, 
However, the cyclist 
accomplished the most unfor- 
gettable feat was an Americar 
named Charles C. Murphy. 

Shortly before the beginn 
ing of the twentieth century 
when bicycle racing wa; 
flowering into its Golden Age, 
Charles Murphy was a cyclist 
noted for his rugged 
durability and speed. But he 
became the laughing stock of 
the sports world because he 
believed that someday he 
would pedal a bicycle at a mile 
a minute. 

To attempt the impossible 
Charles Murphy persuaded 
the Long Island Railroad to 
build a three-mile wooden 
track between its rails, over a 

level stretch of ground near 
the town of Hempstead. A 
train was to pace him over a 
measured mile, in a bicycle 
race against time. 

On June 30, 1899, Murphy 
mounted his bicycle and took 
off behind a train. By the time 
the marked mile was reached, 
the train was going sixty miles 
an hour. And cyclist Murphy 
was right behind it. Pedaling 
furiously, he raced across the 
measured mile in the astonish- 
ing time of 57 4/5 seconds. It 
was an unbelievable, new 
world's bicycle speed record. 

His whizzing ride caused a 
universal sensation. Almost 
overnight, he became famous 
throughout the worid as 
"Mile-a-Minute" Murphy. As 
the fastest bicycle rider in 
history, he reaped a fortune in 

As a bicycle champion, 
"Mile-a-Minute" Murphy left 
behind him no enduring speed 
records. But because of his 
single remarkable feat, his 
name towers above those of 
the most famous cycling 
champions. He was the first 
athlete in history to prove that 
a human being could pedal a 
bicycle at a speed of better 
than a mile in a minute.

The name was derived from a 
suggestion by a name change 
committee headed by Bryan 
Strayer— Southeastern 
College. The name was short- 
ened to Southern for a couple' 
of reasons according to SMC 
President Frank Knittel; the 
first reason being that the 
union in which our college is 
situated includes more than, 
the southeast region of the 
favor of country; the second being to 
avoid confusion with the new 
Southeastern Conference of 
Seventh-day Adventists. 

Dr. Knittel reported that he 
will fully support the 

Missionary College changed 
its name to Andrews 
University in the past. 
When speaking about the 
apparent length of the name 
compared to the present one 
Knittel says, "I anticipate that 
an abbreviated version. 
Southern or Southern College, 
will become common vocab- 
ulary." Knittel also feels that 
the addition of "Seventh-day 
Adventists" to the end of the 

several other church related 
institutions, hospitals, etc.. 
have this addition to their 
names. Thurber reported that 
this name change idea has 
been anticipated for three or 
four years.

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT February 18. 1982 

Ckak conscience?" 

If you groaned when another black and white film flicked 
across the screen at the Valentine's Banquet. I don't blame you. 
If you're ready to lash out at the SA for their ancient choice, 
however, stop and reevaluate the situation. The Student 
Association and the Social Activities Committee didn't choose 
this flick — at least not at first. 

Before any general showing of a film on campus, the movie 
must first be previewed by the film previewing committee. This 
body of several Faculty members with a couple of students acts 
as a school conscience. It is their responsibility to see that a 
movie is consistent with "Christian standards." 

Before this committee is able to judge fairly, I claim that its 
members must first consider whether or not their voting record 
and reasoning is consistent. 

Exhibit 1. The first film previewed for this banquet, "The 
Promise," was rejected on the grounds that one scene was not 
moral. Near the beginning of the movie, it is obvious that a 
couple had been sleeping together out of wedlock. No, there are 
no nude scenes or passionate bedroom scenes. Reason for 
rejection? Cristians do not want to condone sleeping together 
out of wedlock. 

Exhibit 2. The Clark Gable "classic," "It Happened One 
Night," was approved. The decision reeks of inconsistency. If 
permitting a scene to be shown condones the action portrayed in 
the scene {Exhibit 1), then the Preview Committee has 

ndoned smoking, drinking, running away from your father, 

stealing c 
the ceremony. 
Why is showing s 
while showing a s 
whether the scene 

t of your wedding in the middle of 

ccne in one movie "condoning" an action, 
;ne in another is not? Does it depend on 
i viewed in color or black and white? 
I'll go one step further and propose that what the preview 
committee needs to watch for is what the movie is trying to say. 
Whafs the plot? What's the message? 
In last year's memorable showing of "Kramer vs. Kramer," 
Dustin Hoffman reeled off a whole string of obscenities. As you 
walked out of the movie, though it is more likely that you had 
tears in your eyes rather than cuss words in your mouth. 
Nonetheless, I will not fuss over how a committee member 
votes— as long as his voting is consistent. I will fuss over

Dear Editor:

ful music offered by the 
talented and well-trained 
voices of the choir,. ..but it 

Last Thursday, February 
II. Black History Week put a 
black mark on its record. The 
speaker defeated the purpose 
and left many people dis- 
gusted — and some angry. 

One of the first points was 
his attempt to mislead the 
audience into believing that 
reverse discrimination is a 
matter of little consequence. 
The fact of the matter is that 
certain affirmative action 
legislations and programs 
cause reverse discrimination, 
and this type of discrimination 
is practiced on a regular basis. 

The second point has to do 
with his vulgar or profane 
language. I surely didn't 
expect an SDA chaplain to be 
shouting "...mad as h — ..." 
from our pulpit, or anywhere 
else for that matter. 1 don't 
know how mad h — gets, but I 
would venture to suggest that 
it would be an unacceptable 
level of conduct coming from 
an individual who is struggl- 
ing for racial equality. 

Finally, the "service" went 
into overtime by roughly 15 
minutes. That is bad PR policy 
by anyone's standards, 
especially those who have 
busy schedules. 
Before anyone tries to label 
me as a racially-prejudiced 
individual, let me say one 
thing. My early childhood was 

spent in a place and attending 
a school where whites were in 
the minority at about the same 
ratio as blacks are at SMC. I 
probably "suffered" as much, 
or more, from taunting, etc. as 
non-whites at SMC do— if they 

many non-white friends and ai 
one point, tnost of my friends 
were non-white. 
May the correct individual

Dear Mr. Editor, 

I write in deepest 
over what I consider a problem 
in the handling of our annual 
Black History Weeks. 1 am a 
sophomore this year, and I've 
been given the chance to listen 
to two of these weeks and 
watch the reaction of my
