keeping 3n lJoucIi 

Welcome back to school and for those of you who are 
new— we welcome you to Southern College, 

Anticipation seems to occupy our minds for the first few 
days on campus. Then after the anticipation wears down and 
the college routine becomes real, fear seems to take control. 

Now, it isn't fear of the current situation, but fear of the 
unknown. It's a sort of anxiety mixed with anticipation. 

No matter how many years you've attended any learning 
institution, every year proves to be different. 

Our school has been around a long time. In fact, this Ac 
issue helps commemorate the 90th Birthday of Southern. 
During its long history, the school has grown, matured, and 

We believe it should be the same process we undertake. 
Because college life-style tends to mature us subtly, we need 
to do everything we can to keep in touch with our changing, 
growing selves. 

The Accent is a newspaper designed for you to keep in 
touch. We want this paper to be a reflection of you the 
student body. Letting us know what concerns you, giving us 
your opinions on any pertinent issue, helps us create a paper 
worth your time. 

You can help achieve this goal by communicating to us 
through "letters to the editor". Also write your reaction to a 
column and mail it in the conspicuous red mailboxes in the 
dorms or student center. This makes us aware of your 

Consistent striving, hard work, and dedication have helped 
Southern reach its 90th year of Christian education. 

Maintaining these same ideal and learning from your input, 
the Southern Accent will be able to keep the communication 
lines open for a more successful year.

I Dear Students: 

For new and returning stu- 
dents alike every year is a 
glorious challenge for every 
person. This includes teachers 
as well as students. I welcome 
each of you to the campus as 
you take hold of the excite- 
ment of a new yean. I give you 
one promise — our teachers are 
here to do everything in their 
power to help you succeed — 
that is their challenge. Your 
challenge is to claim their 

And finally, the greatest 
challenge of all is to walk each 
day with Jesus Christ. That 
will be the basis of every true 
success you have this year. 

It is nice to stop and look 
back on the past ninety years 
and the history of Southern 
College. It has been a period 
of fortune and growth for the 
school. It is more important, 
however, for us to look to the 
present and what we can do to 
insure that the fine reputation 
that Southern College has had 
in the past continues in the 

It is unfortunate and frustrai 
ing thai the school had to face 
so much criticism lately. We 
all, faculty and students alike, 
have our share of shortcom- 
ings. Many others, however, 
have chosen to focus on short- 
comings instead of the fact 
that Southern College is here 
to give us a Christian educa- 
tion and is doing a good job at 

Fortunately, nothing re- 
quires us to accept others 
patterns of thought. The 
Student Association officers 
for this coming school year 
have determined to make the 
82-83 school year the best in 
the school's history. We 
intend to show to any critics 
that there is more substance to 

the program of Southern I 
College than what might be I 
seen from their point of view, r 
We refuse to let things stag- 
nate, and have determined to I 
put down criticism by rising 
above it. 
The positive influence of the 
students and faculty of this 
school by far outweighs' any I 
shortcomings that exist. With 
your help the Student Associa- 
tion officers intend to show all 
those concerned that &$ 
school is one which we have | 
good reason to be proud 1

Writing a religious column 
for a college newspaper is like 
kissing your mother-in-law. It 
has to be done but few 
appreciate it when you do. I 
mean, who reads a column on 
religion when you can read 
about social events, humorous 
columns, and local intramural 
competition. Usually it is the 
last thing ybu will read proba- 
bly getting to those important 
studies in biology (like the 
eating habits of the Paramec- 
ium) before you get to things 
Wke Accent religious columns. 

Maybe, just maybe, that is 
our problem. We use religion 
like we use deodorant. Some- 
times we don't. It has become 
an object. It is nice to have it 
un Sabbath but we wouldn't 

there. So \ 


church and have religion there 
maybe even saving the relig- 
ious column for Sabbath read- 
ing. Such nice neat compart- 
ments that separate the secu- 
lar from the sacred things are 
a travesty to our religious 
experience and to the nature 

of Christianity. 

Saying, "This is sacred— I 
will save this for Sabbath," 
tends to destroy the essence of 
religion. Religion that does 
not pervade the whole of life is 
like salt that is put on part of 
the food. I see religion as a 
quest, seeking to answer the 
fundamental questions of life 
such as "Who am I?" 
"Where did 1 come from?" 
and "Where am I going?" 
The answer to those questions 
impacts directly on what I do 
every day of the week whether 
you call those activities sacred 



column is called 
"Directions". That title sug- 
gests that what you find here 
should be more like a sign- 
post than a destination. 
Reading it should give pause 
for reflection on some of those 
basic questions of life. 
Because when it comes down 
■ •> it, social events, humorous 
columns, and intermural 
competition all find more 
complete fulfillment when we 
see them in the larger context 

of life's meaning. 

I would like to solicit your 
letters and comments. We 
will publish some, edit some, 
and throw others in the trash 
— but write anyway. If you 
have some questions that you 
would like to see a written 
response to write them down 
and deliver them to the Accent 
office. It is our desire to 
scratch where it itches. The 
religion page will not exactly 
be ihe Ann Landers of South- 
ern College but we will make 
an honest attempt at being a 
sign-post so that your relig- 
ious experience will be a 
meaningful part of your col- 
lege education. 

We also need some guest 
religious editorials. 1 am a 
preacher. I graduated from 
college more years ago than I 
like to think about. You might 
say that I am out of touch and 
if you said that, you would be 
right. So those of you who are 
in touch and have an idea that 
you would like to communicate 
to the student body contact me

Well I spent a fair number of 
lines telling you about my 
philosophy behind the column 
and I suppose 1 should leave 
you with some bit of wisdom 
for the week. Many of you, 
having grown up under the 
rather close constraints of 
parental supervision may be 
looking for some freedom 
more freedom now that you 
are attending college. May I 
propose a parable? 

"Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest there was a small snail 
named Sammy who wanted to 
be free. Sammy was tired of 
dragging his shell around. He 
thought of his shell as a real 
encumbrance to living. He 
I'. Ii like it kept him from doing 
ihe things he wanted to do. 
Old Owl told him that his shell 
was important, and that he 

needed it for protection but he 
would not listen. He thought 
to himself that owl was an old 
fuddy duddie (Have you ever 
met a fuddy duddie? Let me 
know if you have I would like 
to meet one.) who didn't 
understand. Other animals 
kept telling Sammy that snails 
were created to have shells 
and that they needed them but 
Sammy was not convinced. 
One day while he was crawl- 
ing along thinking about his 
desire for freedom his shell 
got caught under a branch and 
he thought, "Here is my 
chance to be free." He pulled 
and tugged until he shell 
broke and he struggled free 
from its weight. As he moved 
away into his newly found 
freedom a bird saw unprotect- 
ed Sammy and swooped down 
for an easy breakfast."

The first catalog for Southern 
Junior College, 1935-36, 
stated that "Each student is 
expected to bring his own 
bedding — three sheets, three 
pillow cases, one bedspread, a 
pillow, and blankets or com- 
forters; also hot water bag, 
towels, dresser scarfs, and 
cover for study table." 

Along with the times, styles 
too have changed, even at our 
college. Around 1915 dress 
lengths begin to creep up to 
mid-calf level and in the early. 
1920'sthe "bob" (short) hair 
jut for women came in along 
with more "mannish, immod- 
est apparel" which included 
mid-calf length dresses and 
less-feminine type clothing, 

By 1925 the shortest skirts 
that had ever been seen 
debuted in Paris. Rouge and 
lipstick were a must and 
eyebrow pencils retailed. As 
dress lengths steadily 
approached the knee towards 
1930, many Adventists be- 
came quite alarmed. 

In keeping with the Dow 
Jones Industrial Average, 
hemlines took a sudden drop 
in 1930-33. The dresses took 
on a more feminine appear- 
ance once again and by 1934 
the "Gibson Girl" sleeves of 
1895 were back again. Bath- 
ing suits now came without 
backs and were no longer the 
bloomer variety. 

Entering a new decade, the 
forties, circle or "swing" 
skirts made their appearance 
along with rising hemlines 
{below Knee-length) and 
strapless formals. Strapless 
bathing suits were also inven 
ed. The relatively short dress 
lengths of the early forties 
were soon followed by longer, 
mid-calf length skirts. Huf 
floppy hats, raglan sleeves 
and very high heels were all in 
vogue. Men wo r double- 
breasted suits jackets with 
baggy cuffed pants. 

During the Fifties the classic 
saddle oxford and flat pump 
combined with crenolined 

skirts with large floral pat- 
terns became the word of the- 
day. Teenage boys discovered 
white T-shirts, rolled up 
straight-legged blue jeans, 
white socks and black leather 
jackets and shoes. 

The hemlines of the fifties 
couldn't stay down forever 
and with the advent of the 60's 
came flower power, flower 
children, peace, love, and yes, 
second skin straight leg pants, 
pointed shoes, and the belov- 
ed mini-skirt! 

In the late sixties collars got 
longer, skirts got shorter (now 
mid-thigh length). And bell 
bottoms, the all-consuming 
hippie thrust, rung their way 
through America. 

Gradually through the seven- 
ties fashion designers relived 
the mini-skirt (though some 
believe it never left Europe). 
In the early 70's "platform" 
shoes popped on the market, 
with women breaking their 
ankles and feet at an alarming 
rate until their demise. 

Through these years deans 
and faculty struggled through 
the long hair and waded 
through the mini-skirts. 

In recent years a battle over 
blue jeans ensued. The SMC 
student handbook stated that 
for "general campus attire" 
blue jeans and overalls were 
acceptable only on Sundays 
and weekdays after 7pm. 

At other times they were 
prohibited in all classrooms, 
cafeteria and the library. 
Punishment for continual 
violation of this rule could be 
expulsion from school. 

As of last Spring after num- 
erous letters to the editor and 
staged protests, SC became 
the last SDA college in North 
America to permit blue jeans 
in the classroom. At last! 
Students could wear clothing 
of their choosing to class, 

Ironically enough, girls 
received a memo from the 
deans in their mailboxes this 
past week. It went something 
like this, "Mini-skirts are not 
acceptable campus attire." 
Have times really changed?

O^ime Out KeW-Hn 



After .attempting in vain to 
obtain the expert opinions of 
certain sportscasters in the 
area on their ideas of the 
upcoming fastpitch season, I 
have decided to take the task 
upon myself. I do so at the 
risk of taking much verbal 

abuse, and the possibility of 
losing friends and gaining 
enemies. But wnen the call of 
duty comes from fellow sports 
fans, we must respond, so 
here goes. 

No. 1 Team Brad Durby 6-2 
A good strong team in all 

respects. Experience, leader-l 
ship, talent - this group has it 
all. The talent level on thisl 
team isn't so much greater! 
than others, but Durby's abil-, 1 
ity to motivate may prove to be 
the deciding factor. He will be 
depending on the likes of Don 
Sweeney and Dick Bird for 
their contributions. 

No. 2 Team 
Kelly Pettijohn 5-3 
This team is solid at all 
defensive positions, as well as 
a good balance of power and 
basehitting. Pettijohn could 
easily give Durby a run for his 
money with a few good 
breaks. However, lack of 
experienced leadership could

Its built-in business formulas

finance, accounting and 
statistical functions- the ones 
that usually requite a lot of 
time and a stack of reference

It all means you spend less of the package. You also get

of Pettijohn's key players are 
Greg Cain, Fred Roscher, and 
Rick Greve. If these guys 
don't produce, then he may 
have his hands full. 

No. 3 Teams Tie 

Kevin Cummings and Rick 

Giebel 4-4 

Giebel has plenty of power in 
Craig Stone, Greg Culpepper, 
and Bruce Gibbon. But 
defense and lack of experi- 
enced leadership could possi- 
bly deter them. 

Cummings' team is almost 
unpredictable, which is one of 
Cummings personal charac- 
teristics. He has an excellent 
shortstop in Jim Dobson, solid 
all-around play from John 
Grys, and good first base in 
Dave Botimer.

■ Loga 

Well, it's happened. Despite 
the horrors of registration, 
another school year has 
begun. I have been most, 
graciously invited to give youj 
a brief rundown on campus 
life in general and this year's;, 
agenda in particular. So pay! 

First of all, females, for those 
of you who have arrived 
starry-eyed in hopes of a quick 
and painless engagement, a 
word or caution: leave. You 
will find that Adventist 
Contact, the other major dat j 
ing service, is much cheapei 
and much less competition. 
Now if you are interested in 
becoming a single parent and 
would like a little boy to adopt, 
I would definitely check out 
Talge Hall; you may find just 
what you're looking for. 

The remaining ten percent of 
the ladies can hopefully be 
thrown into the mainstream of 
school and kept occupied 
And speaking of— I do have 
the agenda tor the year. 

In an all-out effort to save 
money, our illustrious busi- 
ness manager has decided not 
to have classes this year. 
Some of you may have noticed 
this at registration. I realize 
many of you may find this a bit 
disconcerting, but there is 
hope. By not having classes, 
the college will thereby be 
able to release most of the 
faculty. With no salaries 
except Dean Schlisner's to pay 
(after all, someone has to be 
here to check the theaters) the 
school can pay off its outstand- 
ing bills and be ready to open 
the halls of learning again 
next year. Sure, the plan has 
a few flaws, but its not bad for 
a school whose very name 
isn't even a certaintly. 
In the entertainment section, 
"The Love Bug" has finally 
been replaced by a movie 
which will premiere sometime 
this fall. It was cast on 
location here at SC last 'sum- 
mer and is called "The Diary 
of Our Frank", a thrilling 

story about a college president 
who kept all his political 
secrets locked in a little green 
journal. SC's drama group, 
Southern Players, is at this 
moment trying to purchase the 
royalties to the play version. 
Auditions for the lead role will 
be held this spring, although 
it's rumored that E.O. 
Grundset has already been 
cast as "Frank". 

I am running out of space but 
there is one last item of 
interest. The Southern Union 
Conference had planned on 
holding a seminar here at SC 
on the low cost of a Christian 
education but that has since 
been cancelled due to lack of 
funds. I'm sure all of us can

It helps if the old students are 
friendly and outgoing so new 
students feel more 
comfortable without having to 
always make the first gesture 
of friendliness. 

How can old students help you

Everyone around here is very 
friendly, but I wish there were 
more things to do on Sabbath 
afternoons. This past Sabbath 
I would 've gone onjailbands 
but found out too late to go. 

When it comes to the food at Taco 
Bell there's really only one school 
of thought. What a difference! 

To begin with, your order's made 
up fresh from the best ingredients. 
That's different. And it's all served 
up piping hot to be sure you get all of 
the delicious flavor. That's different. 
You also get served fast, which 
means that our schedule will keep 
you on yours. That's different. 

And you get it all at the terrific 
Taco Bell, price. That's really different. 

Plus, where else do you find food 
with deliciously different names like 
Taco Supreme., Burrito Supreme, 
and Enchirito.? Each one a far cry 

from the usual fast food fare (not to 
mention whatever that is they serve 
in the cafeteria). 

So cut out the coupon, then cut 
out for Taco Bell and see for your- 
self what a difference we make.

Gilbert Accepts Chairmanship 

Associate Professor of Nurs- 
ing, Mrs. Ellen Gilbert, was 
appointed Chairman of the 
Nursing Division at SC in May 
of 1982. 
Having been with the Nurs- 
ing Division for 16 years, 
Mrs. Gilbert has witnessed 
many changes. She has seen 
i the division grow until it is the 
largest one on campus. 
Within and outside the 
denomination, Mrs. Gilbert 
feels that Southern College 
has an exceptional division in 
quantity and quality of nurses 
because of the personal con- 
cern each instructor has for ' 
the individual student. Not 
only is there a concern with 
grades or career problems,! 
but also with personal! 

, One of the goals she hopes to 
achieve is to improve 
communications between the 
Collegedale campus and the 
Orlando campus. 
When asked how her family 
felt on her new position, Mrs- 
Gilbert stated, "My husband 
is very, very, supportive. I've 
always been a full-time career 
woman, so it was no drastic 
change for my family." 
However, she says she still < 
has time to be a housewife and 
enjoys the domestic responsi- 
bilities of sewing and cooking.

Coffin has chosen to deal with

It is his hope-that as a fesuh

Christianity will take on new 
meaning and will be perceived 
as the bea utiful experien ce

If we make a change in a fellow 's writeup. 

We are too critical, and if we don 't we are astt 

Now, likely as not, someone will say 

We swiped this from some other paper. 

We did! 


The above case is just an example of how it is virtually

With every person, attitude differs. Each one ot us 
develops his own opinion about certain issues. Each one of 
us seeks to satisfy his own desires. And each one of us,

Our thinking is focused in one direction. Outside sources 
influence our thinking; but, the thinking process is still 
personal. Thus, decisions become the personal stance one 
adopts after a period of thought. 

Attitude is the result of a conscious decision to react a 
particular way in a given situation. Environment, 
experience, and background contribute to the development 
of attitudes. 

With the constant mental growth of an individual, some 
attitudes tend to change. As time progresses, new patterns 
of thinking are accepted and old decisions adapt to the

Folklore, hunting tales and 
campfire talk, are all heavily 
laced with reference to owls. 
It's understandable enough, 
for in the owls' s silent pas- 
sage, and unbirdlike voice, 
there is fuel enough to trigger 
even a halfway active imagin- 
Representatives of the owl 
family are nearly worldwide 
with a total of 134 species. 
Owls hunt a variety of prey (in 
keeping with their size and 
their usual haunts). Rabbits, 
squirrels, mice, rats, fish, and 
insects are among the game 
owls seek. Here are some 
species you are most likely to 
encounter in Tennessee. 
The Great Homed Owl is a 
large member of the group, 
standing about 20 inches. 
Prominent ear tufts, white 
throat, and conspicuous cross 
barring of the underbelly 
readily identify this species. 
A skilled hunter of a variety of 
small creatures, it seems to 
prefer areas of heavy timber, 
but it is not averse to more 
open country. Its voice is a 
deep, resonant hooting. 
The Barred Owl is another 
large woodland species well- 
known to Tennesseans. Its 
loud call is a familiar one and 
is often imitated by spring 
turkey hunters. 
The large, puffy head with- 
out ear tufts, dark eyes, and 
the lengthwise streaks on the 
chest, are unmistakable field 

The Screech Owl is the small- 
est and perhaps the most 
abundant of our owls. Meas- 
ring about eight to ten inches 
in length, it is heard in back- 

yards in town as often' as in 
more remote situations. 
Rather than a screech as the 
name implies, the usual call is 
a pleasant short, low quaver- 
ing trill. 

Small size and the ear tufts 
readily mark this bird. There 
are three color phases; red, 
gray, and brown. 

Another beauty is the Barn 
towl. With its white, heart- 
shaped face, dark eyes, and 
light body, it is unlikely to be 
mistaken for any of our other 
owls. The Monkey-faced Owl 

is a name sometimes a 

to this species- , i 

They are pr'emier hunters 01 1

mice and rats, and therefore 
are important allies of fac- 
ers. A rasping call and I

Thatcher Curfew— Is it Justified?

1 here are many different 
views surrounding the n 
8:00 curfew of the humble 
abode of our lovely damsels' 
otherwise known as Thatcher 

In the past, many of these 
young lovelies have found this 
'rule to be convenient for their 
evening stroll to the lobby 
comfortably attired in a bath

males of our campus residing

The young men feel quite 
comfortable dressing for our 

welcome guests and would 
kindly appreciate the ladies 
bestowing this privilege to us 
.as we have to them. 
PDA has been considered a 
problem in need of a remedy. 
As a hopeful solution the 
administration has strongly 
encouraged that no one loiter' 
in front of the dorm or enter : 
the lobby after visiting hours. I 
To this, a question has been" 
raised by many. Why should a 
dozen or so students spoil 
those privileges that were 
once enjoyed by the entire! 
student body? i 

I realize that it is extremely. 

Anyone visiting Thatcher 
Hall on a week night will see a 
sign upon entering which 
reads, "No Gentlemen 
visitors after 8:00 pm". Many 
ha e asked, "Why the magic 
hour of 8:00 pm"? Had you 
visited Thatcher during the 
August session when we had 

would have been obvious. The 
lobby was packed with groups 
socializing and guests and, 
visitors found it necessary toj 
fight their way to the front} 

desk. After reaching the 
receptionist one had to yell to 
be heard above the noise. 
Telephone traffic is heavy 
during evening hours and the 
amount of noise and activity 
the lobby made phone conv< 
sations almost impossible, 
We are delighted to have male 
visitors come and to have

A quick look at last year's 
Headlines column is enough to 
boggle the mind. The world is 
changing so rapidly and 
■ramatically that it's hard to 
Keep things straight. Before 
beginning this year's News- 
briefs let's take a brief look at 
Bhe current state of world 

JThe Lebanese crisis repre- 
i yet another serious set- 
While the Israelis 
founded their Syrian and 
Palestinian allies with US 
made weapons, the Soviets 
did little more than sit on their 
humbs. This lesson won't be 
■ on the Arab world. It's 
v clear that the US, through 
powerful Israeli Client- 
ftate. holds all the cards that 
natter in the Middle East. 
The US has taken its lumps 
| well. An effective Soviet 
opaganda campaign and US 
olicy blunders including the 
urrent oil-gas pipeline 
inbargo have combined to 

create the greatest crisis in 
US — Western European rela- 
tions since World War II. 
Short sighted US foreign 
policy decisions have caused 
severe diplomatic problems 
with China and the Arab 

US-Chinese relations have 
been hurt by the recent arms 
deal between the US and 
Taiwan. Fortunately, the 
Reagan Administration was 
able to cut its losses and patch 
things up with China. 

The President has his 
troubles also. Although infla- 
tion has gone down, it has 
done so at the cost of a severe 
recession and unemployment 
figures are close to ten 

Now it seems President 
Reagan must drop his hard 
line ideological approach to 
both domestic and foreign- 

For example, the oil-gas 

pipeline embargo, enacted 
after the Polish martial law 
declaration, must end. It will 
not prevent the building of the 
pipeline and may cause severe 
damage to US-European 

The US must also change its 
diplomatic policies with the 
Israelis. The 1973 war proved 
the US can manipulate Israeli 
policy when it wants to. 
President Reagan must simply 
show that he definitely wants 

The most pressing problem is 
the economy. The time for 
high sounding rhetoric about 
all the problems the Demo- 
crats left Reagan is over. He 
must now show that he can 
deal with high interest and 
unemployment rates. If not, 
soon Mr. Carter's economy 
will become Mr. Reagan's 
and, in 1984, we will see a 
•epeatofthe "throw the bums 
out" mentality that character- 
ized the 1980 election.

Campus Ministries is alive and kicking this year at Southern 
College. If you're on campus any Sabbath afternoon with 
nothing to do, we've got something for you. There are enough 
activities planned to save you from ever having a dull Sabbath 
on this campus again. 

Our goal this year is to provide activities for you to grow in 
your faith and share it with others. It is hoped that you will take 
advantage of Campus Ministries this year and get involved. 

One of the most exciting things in life is to bring hope and 
peace into the existence of another human being. Please 
consider how you can be of the best service to the Master.

It was the first game of the 
season. I was on my way to 
the softball fields. As I 
rounded the corner of the VM, 
I stopped suddenly. There 
were lots of people watching. 
1 hastened my step in order to 
determine who had come to 
watch. As the evening pro- 
gressed, the crowd kept grow- 
ing. Ii was definitely the best 
turnout I had seen since 1 had 
been at school. 

This is what our intramural 
program is all about — partici- 
pation. Not only by the 
players, but by the fans as 
well. Whether we take sports 
seriously or whether we sim- 
ply play for exercise, everyone 
can enjoy sports. 
The main thing is to get 
involved. "Involvement" is 
the key word this year in SC 
sports. You do not have to be 
athletic to take part in the 
optional activities. From soft- 
ball to cycling, from basketball 
tojogging, you can participate 
in almost any sport that suits 

This year the Southern Ac-

sports activities here at SC.

The 1982 fastpitch softball 
season got off to a slow start 
last week. Most of the games 
were rained out on Wednes- 
day and Thursday. 

However, some fine play was 
displayed in the games sched- 
uled for Monday and Tuesday. 
In"A" League action, Giebell 
defeated Gaber 7-5. A s< 
less tie was broken in the third 
inning with a bases loaded 
double by Craig Stone, 
throwing error enabled Stone 
to come home to make the 
score 4-0. 

Giebell scored three i 
runs and Gaber rallied to s 
five with the home run by 

David Peterson. 

Tuesday night, Pettijohn de- 
feated Cummings 4-3. Petti- 
John's team started off the 
game by scoring three runs in 
the top of the first inning. 

Cummings came right back 
in the bottom of the first with 
two runs, keyed by an RBI 
triple by Dave Botimer. The 
rest of the contest was a 
defensive battle, with the only 
scoring being home runs by 
Rick Greve and Botimer. 

In "B" League, two games 
were played. Krall defeated 
Mock despite a home run by 
Glenn Greenlee. Tuesday 
night Lebo defeated Lamb.

Editor's Note: 

We here at the Southern 
Accent, have a practice. We 
enjoy reliving pleasant exper- 
iences and relish well-written 

One of our most beloved 
writers, who has moved on to 
a better world, still holds a 
special place. This week we 
remember, Steve Dickerhoff, 
as his spirit lingers in our 

I am usually an open-minded 
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 
I 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. 

"It's a long story," he 
began. "I didn't have the 
nerve to tell you first semes- 
ter, but..." 

He couldn't goon. It was too 
horrible to even think about. 

"I did a lot of thinking over 
Christmas break," he contin- 
ued, ' 'and I have decided to be 
honest with you and with 
myself. First semester, deep 
down inside of me I was a 
latent prep. I've realized I 
can't hide it forever, so I have 
decided to come out of the 

I stood there stunned. As I 
began to walk away, he hand- 
ed me a "Preps Are People 
Too" button. I didn't see my 
friend for a long time after 
that. One day as I walked 
through the lobby, there he 
sat playing back-gammon with 
one of "them." 

"Long time no see," he said. 

I really didn't want to be seen 
talking with him, but I forced 

"Nice pair of green pants. 
Don't believe I've ever seen a 
shade of green quite that 
bright before." 

"Well, it's the newest, you 
know. What do you think of 
my Oxford's?" > 

I couldn't take it any longer. 
Here was a semi-normal 
human-being transformed 
before my eyes, and I couldn't 
do a thing to stop it. I decided 
I had to do something, sb the 
next Sunday I went up to his 

"How about going out and 
throwing the football 

around?" I asked. 

"Man, I would really like to, 
but a hunch of us are going 
sailing this afternoon, and I 
can't make it." 

"Whv?" I asked in desper- 

ation. ' 'Why did you 

"Well," he began, "I really 
don't know. I've always had 
this thing for brightly colored 
neon signs, and I guess I've 
always pictured myself as one. 

And another thing, matching 
clothes has always been hard 
for me, and with this new style 
I just get up every morning 
and throw on the first thing I 
see — and it works. I know it's 
probably hard for you to 
understand," he said as he 
put his hands into his yellow 
pants, "but, I guess you must 
have to walk a mile in a prep's

The final portions of the 
Joker were delivered to the 
College Press on Wenesday, 
September 1, according to 
Editor Jon Larrabee. 

Preparation for the Joker 
started soon after the previous 
edition was released. Student 
Missionaries, Task Force 
workers, Orlando students, 
faculty and staff were person- 
ally requested and persistent- 
ly reminded to get their pic- 
tures taken. Ads were obtain- 
ed and submitted to the press 
long before registration. 

Actual layout was scheduled 
for Monday, August 30, so as 
to include the majority of late 
registrants. John Kendall 
spent many hours program- 
ming so that the type could be 
set automatically. 

If everything goes smoothly, 
we can expect the 1982 Joker 
to be released soon.

If there's one thing undergrad 
business students have always 
needed, this is it: an affordable 
business-oriented calculator. 
The Student Business Analyst 
Its built-in business formulas 
let you perform complicated 
finance, accounting and 
statistical functions-the ones 
that usually require a lot of 
time and a stack of reference 
books, like present and future 
value calculations, amortiza- 
tions and balloon payments. 

It all means you spend 1 
time calculating, and more 
time learning. One keystroke 
takes the place of many. 
The calculator is just part 

of the package. You also get 
a book that follows most 
business courses: the Business

professors helped us write it, 
to help you^et the most out

Coffins ministers to SC 

Mr. Jim Coffin, currently an 
assistant editor of the Adven- 
tist Review, is conducting this 
semester's Week of Spiritual 
Emphasis at Southern 
Concerned with a need to 
change our perspective about

include personal stories, new 
twists to Bible stories, and an 
animated style which brings 
his talks to life. 
Mr. Coffin served as a pastor 
in Australia before serving as 
pastor at the Burtonsville, 
Maryland church. Yet Coffin 

found Southerners to be 
friendly. "I have been to SC 

years past," he com

In addition to his speaking 
appointments, Mr. Coffin £ 
counseled interested students

Orchestra begins 

By Leanns Facundus 

The SC Symphony broke all 
previous records of member- 
ship with 80 musicians joining 
the group this year, eight 
more than the record of 1981 
when the orchestra toured the 
South Pacific. 

A majority of the new 16 
members stated that the 
symphony was an important 
factor in their decision to 
attend Southern College. 
"The members are quite 
gifted and dedicated to 
produce quality perfor- 
mances," stated Orlo Gilbert, 
director of the orchestra. 

Because of the symphony's 
contribution to the world 
cultural exchanges, evidenced 
by the successful tours to the 
Orient in 1979 and the South 
Pacific in 1981, the World's 
Fair Performing Arts Commit- 
tee has extended an invitation 
to the symphony to perform in 
Knoxville on October 17. 

Other activities for the orche- 
stra this year include a tour to 
the Orlando, Florida area in 
November, the home concert 
on Nevember 20 with guest 
violinist Daniel Hieftz, the 
Messiah performances De- 
cember 11 and 12, and another

Learning center 
to open 

By Maureen Mayden 

Southern College's new 
Learning Center will be direc- 
ted by Mrs. Carol Haynes, of 

Haynes is currently working 
on her Ph.D. (her thesis deals 
with learning centers) at the 
University of Tennessee at 
Knoxville. She also interned 
for a time at Chattanooga 
State's Learning Center. Her 
specialities are teaching, read- 
ing and study skills. _ 

.Southern College's Learning 
Center will provide tutoring of 
help with any class students 
have trouble with. It will be a 
center of learning, according 
to Haynes. She also ex- 
pressed the availability of the 
Center to faculty for improv- 
ing teaching skills. Various 
other programs can be added 
to suit individual needs. 

Dr. Frank Knittel, president 
of Southern College, stated 
that the official planning for 
the Center must begin by 
October 1, 1982, and that it 

should be fully open by Jan- 
uary, 1983. Mrs. Haynes feels 
that a limited beginning, such 
as tutoring, could start right 
away, and agreed with the 
second semester opening date 
for full operation of the 

Haynes expressed the need 
for lots of space in a central- 
ized location for the new 
center. She would not state a 
preference, but merely said 
that five places on campus 
were bring considered. 

One of Haynes' first duties 
will be to rewrite the organi- 
zational material for the Ce i- 
ter. An unexpected cut in t' 1 e 
governmental grant has t e- 
cessitated a need ?r ^^

Mrs. Haynes stated that t is

SC at the crossroads 

At one tune or another during its history, every business, 
institution and government questions its reason for 
existence. People inside and outside of the organization 
wonder which way things are heading and how they can help 
redirect the thrust of current affairs. Southern College has 
reached that critical point in its history. 

Certain conservative forces on the outside have assailed the 
college for liberal and heretical ideas and policies. Some 
radical publications have urged the removal or resignation ot 
top leaders~at SC and the conferences and union affliated 
with the college. This, they believe, will solve everything 
On the other hand, students at SC are complaining about the 
strictly enforced rules and the seemingly harsh sentences 
meted out when they are broken. So which way will SC s 
administration turn? 

The Southern College Board of Trustees, who met on 
September 15, will try to guide and direct SC's future. Yet 
those men walk a very thin line. A sharp swing to the right 
would alienate many students and faculty members at SC 
while a move to the left could further inflame certain factions 
in the Southern Union. 

Some people have offered simple answers to the complex 
problems at SC. But these unwise and foolish solutions will 
not solve the complex problems, only compound them. 

Southern College's problems will not go away overnight. 
Only with dedicated effort and unity can SC pass this 
crossroad and continue on the path of servi^

Due to administrative

of the Southern Accent this 
issue has been produced 
under extremely unusual cir- 
cumstances. Under the situa- 
tion at hand it is my Constitu-

maintain at least temporary

only natural to ask the assis-

resignation, however, this was 
impossible. As a result, I 
asked the remaining staff to 
combine their talents to com-*

Southern Players plans plays 

By Laurie Loga 

Ad lecile inoa emphasees 
)!ii!a du "i". And rememba, 
you is macho. Cool. Walka 
lika you owns da world. Lika 

Actually, the mini-dialogue 
above is just a fragment of the 
conversation which abounds 
each Monday and Wednesday 
nights on various parts of the 
campus. Approximately 15 SC 
students participate, often 
making the room sound like a 
foreign language convention 
at the UN building. 

But these students really do 
have a method in their mad- 
ness. They are SC's newest 
drama group. Southern Play- 
ers. And although each 
practice session is not spent 
learning new dialogues and 

accents, the actors neverth- 
less are presented with vari- 
ous other challenges which 
they must meet. 

The group really had its 
beginning last spring when 
Clyde Garey, director of the 
Players, cast the play "Flow- 
ers for Algernon." Being a 
newcomer to SC himself, 
Garey had entertained 
thoughts before of starting a 
group, but had nothing solidi- 

"I hadn't intended to use the 
cast from 'Flowers' as the 
group, but everyone worked, 
very well together and we 
needed a good solid struc- 
ture," says Garey. 
The director has a unique 

purpose in mind for his actors. 

"Within each human being, 
there is a desire to participate 
in the arts. All of us have this 
desire, which comes out in art, 
music, writing, or some other 
form, some people simply 
don't fit in the other catego- 
ries; their talent lies in per- 
forming. I want to uncover 
that talent and make these 
individuals realize that acting 
isn't just an ego trip, but 
rather a worthwhile effort 
legitimate in and of itself." 

Few people realize the 
amount of work and long 
hours which go into the pro- 
duction of a play. Since the 
Players goal is to be as 
professional as possible, each 
actor must spend some time 

each day in practice on his 
own. As performance time 
nears, the actors spend sever- 
al hours at a time working to 
my actors personally and I 
expect a great deal from 
them," Garey says firmly. 

Contrary to popular belief, 
most of the Players are not 
communication majors, al- 
though a few are. Future 
nurses, businessmen, secre- 
taries and PE teachers all 
combine their interest and 
enthusiasm to make the group 

Three plays have already 
been listed on the calendar for 
this year and several more are 
being considered. Also on the 
list of possibilities are some 

off-campus productions, 

though the group does not 
plan to go on tour. 

Southern Players would like 
to show their audiences this 
year that while spotlights and 
applause are nice fringe bene- 
fits, the main purpose of the 
group is to give trj^hose who 
take the^^im*' to attend the 
performances. Each actor has 
found out that the best part of 
acting is knowing that the 
audience will walk away with 
something besides a ticket 
stub.^omething that will stay 
with them long after the 
applause if forgotten. 

And that, in a word or two, is 
really what the group is all 


of air raids against Syrian and 
Palestinian positions because 
of alleged cease-fire violations 
by the Arabs. These raids 
destroyed a number of Syrian

ments, caused dozens of 
casualties and raised the 
possibility of a full-scale war 
between Syria and Israel.

for an independent Palestinian 
state. Repatriation of Pales- 
tinian exiles (in Israel) and 
implied recognition of Israel's 
right to exist was denounced 

by Israeli Foreign Minister

the liquidation of Israel."

Aerobics exercise-is it right?

Should Southern college offer 
aerobics class? Actually the 
question is, "Should we be 
offering this class with the 
wrong kind of music, (disco. 

Let me share a few words of 
advice from Mrs. White. 
"The introduction of music 
into their homes instead of 
inciting to holiness and spirit- 
uality, has been the means of 
diverting their minds from the 
truth. Frivolous songs and the 
popular sheet music of the day 

Aerobic exercise to music has 
gained widespread attention 
thoughout the United States 
recently. Jackie Sorenson 
developed many of the early 
programs which resulted from 
the early stage of the fitness 
craze of the late 70's and early 
80's. Aerobics to music is an 
excellent form of exercise. 

Most aerobic classes are not 
coeducational. It is a great 
way for women to exercise in a 
wholesome social surround- 

While many aerobic classes 
are designed and centered 
around modern dance and 
music that would be "unac- 
ceptable" by Adventist stan- 
dards, it is quite possible to 

seem congenial to their 
taste... Music when not abus- 
ed, is a great blessing, but 
when put to a wrong use, it is 
a terrible curse." 1 Testimon- 
ies p. 497. 

We need to consider what 
kind of music we are using 
with our exercise classes. 
This music is the music which 
is played in the popular get 
togethers of the world. What 
kind of amusements are en- 
joyed there? Is it not enough 

develop programs based on 
acceptable movement and 
wholesome music. It has been 
our goal at Southern College 
to strive to make our aerobic 
exercise programs enjoyable 
and beneficial while maintain- 
ing the highest standards in 

When designed properly, 
aerobics can provide many 
physiological advantages. In- 
creases in aerobic capacity or 
respiratory efficiency result. 
Corresponding increases in 
muscular strength and endur- 
ance also occur. A reduction 
in resting heart rate, exercise 
heart rate, and cholesterol 
may also be seen. When

for us to realize that the world 
associates worldly desires 
with this music? Do we want 
to condone that by making it a 
part of our exercise program? 

In the Great Controversy, 
Page 587, in the chapter 
Impending Conflict, "We may 
disguise poison by mingling it 
with wholesome food, but we 
do not change its nature. On 
the contrary, it is rendered 
more dangerous, as it is more 
likely to be taken 

Isn't that exactly what 

engaged in, aerobics may also 
increase fat metabolism which 
in turn decreases the amount 
of adipose tissue present and 
the end result is an overall loss 
in inches. 

Aerobics also provides a 
social outlet for aggression. 
The end result is less tension. 
The feeling of accomplishment 
and group belonging is diffi- 
cult to measure, but there is 
little doubi that these areas 
are important. Self- 

are important. Self-image 
may also be enhanced by 
participation with like mem- 
bers from your peer group.

but why mix it with question- 
able music?

Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest there was a squirrel 
who decided to develop a 
business of selling nuts. He 
was an industrious squirrel 
and thought that others might 
enjoy the good nuts he collect- 
ed as much as he did. So 
Simon, for that was his name, 
set up the NUT HUT on a busy 
intersection of Fenton Forest. 
He worked nis heart out 
getting the stand set up, 
spending many hours each 
day until the NUT HUT was 
really a A very attractive 
stand. The NUT HUT carried 
a large variety of first quality 

One thing that concerned 
Sammy was how to tell the 
other animals in the forest 
about the NUT HUT. He 
decided that he needed to 
advertise and so he hired 
Sammy Jay to do advertising. 
Signs were placed at appro- 
priate places in the forest to 
tell other animals about the 
NUT HUT. Some TV advertis- 
ing was even purchased to 
exclaim the goodness of his 
nuts. The NUT HUT became 
Very popular among all the 
animals in the forest. 

He discovered that there 
truly were many other animals 
who enjoyed the nuts as well 

as he did and business pros- 
pered. He had to hire other 
squirrels to collect nuts for the 
business and he even bought a 
new stove to roast nuts. He 
expanded the NUT HUT to 
include a place where animals 
could sit down and eat. 
Business was great and Simon 
was truly enjoying himself. 

One day his son came home 
from Squirrel Tech. Simon 
had been looking forward to 
having him help him with the 
NUT HUT. But his son said, 
"Dad, haven't you been lis- 
tening to the radio or reading 
the newspaper?" 

Simon admitted that he had 

not been reading the news- 
paper or watching television — 
he had been too busy selling 
nuts. "Well," his son said, 
"If you would have been 
paying attention to what is 
going on in the world you 
would know that things are 
really bad. There is a big 
depression. People are out of 
work, interest rates are high 
and I heard that the market for 
nuts will fall. Who knows 
where it will all end." 

Simon thought, "Well, my 
son's been to college, he reads 
the papers and listens to the 
radio and he ought to know 
what is going on." 

So Simon fired the squirrels 
that were collecting nuts for 
him and canceled the TV 
advertising. He reduced the 
hours that the NUT HUT was 
open and told Sammy Jay that 
he wouldn't need his

Animal shelter starts 

Since last September of 1981 , 
Southern College has been 
operating a live animal facility 
next to Hackman Hall on the 
north side and next to Lynn 
Wood Hall. 

Dr. Grundset. the person 
responsible for getting this 
project rolling, thought that at 
one time, Hackman Hall 
would require an addition, but 
that proved to be very expen- 
sive. The facility is a trailer 
donated by the village housing 

According to Dave Matthew- 
son, who is in charge of the 
rehabilitation work inside and 
whom takes care of the many 
animals that now resides, says 

the purpose is "to have a 
place that not only has more 
space, but can keep all ani- 
mals in one area instead of 
being scattered throughout 
the main building." There 
will be various experiments 
performed during and after 
class periods and labs. 

Why is the facility so impor- 
tant? According to Dr. David 
Steen, "there was a general 
realization that the Biology 
Department needed live ani- 
mals to study." 

Matthewson also said, "it 
gives us more room to observe 
wild animals captured from 
our own biology trail, sur- 
rounding counties, and as far 

av. av as California and South 
Afnerica. We have already 
observed a Western Cotton] 
mouth Moccasin giving binn

Houck and Carter research topics 

Doctors Duane Houck and 
Hon Carter, instructors in the 
Natural Science Division of 
SC, spent this past summer 
doing research in their 
respective fields of interest, 
botany and evolution. 

Dr. Duane Houck. professor 
of biology, has written a paper 
that is to be published within 
the next year by [he American 
Journal of Botany. The paper 
is based on research done by 
Dr. Houck and Loren Riese- 
berg, an SMC graduate of '81 , 
on the bryophyllum calyci- 
num, more commonly known 
as the Life plant. 

Dr. Houck discovered that 
little research had been done 
on the plant, and has been 
studying and observing it 
under variious conditions ever 
since. The results of his 
research. Which is cited in his 
paper, is that a chemical, 
auxin, inhibits the embryo-like 
substance around the edge" of 

the leaf when attached to the 
plant, but when the leaf is 
detached enzymes are acti- 
vated taht work against the 
auxin allowing the hormones 
to be stimulated and the buds 

Currently, Dr. Houck, with 
the assistance of Terry 
Andrade, is doing more re- 
search with the hope of learn- 
ing the amount of auxin within 
an attached leaf and its con- 
centration when the leaf is 
severed and budding. 

Dr. Houck explained the 
importance of his research. 
"This plant appears to have a 
system that may help us to 
understand how hormones 
work in all plants." 

Dr. Ron Carter was invited to 
speak this summer, for the 
third consecutive year, at the 
Biblical Research Institute's 
and the Geo-Science Research 
Institute's annual joint meet- 
ing. The Biblical Research 

institute, founded in 1952, is a 
committee of experienced men 
of varied qualifications that 
are appointed by the General 
Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists to study any Bible- 
related issues that they feel 
are important. The Geo- 
Science Research Institute 
was formed by the General 
Conference in the late 1950's 
to keep the Biblical Research 
Institute aware of the increas- 
ing number of scientific issues 
that could threaten the Bible. 
Dr. Carter's presentation 
was on a concept of biological 
determinism, which is based 
on a new evolutional theory, 
so- .-biology, that he feels "is 
to oing to captivate the minds of 
many philosophers." Socio- 
biology, a systematic study of 
the biological basis of all social 
behaviour, will supposedly 
help answer some of the 
questions philosophers have 
been asking for years. Why 

does man perform certain 
selfless or altruistic actions? 
Is man free or unfree? Does 
man make his own destiny or 
is he pre-destined? 
Since Darwin's theory of 
evolution and survival of the 
fittest originated, evolution- 
ists have had a difficult time 
explaining one of its main 
weaknesses, altruism. If there 
was to be survival of the 
fittest, why were some ani- 
mals willing to act to their own 
detriment for the good of the 
population or species? Scient- 
ists have now supposedly 
found the answer. It isn't 
survival of the fittest individ- 
ual or group, but survival of 
the fittest gene, a concept now 
called kin selection. "This," 
explained Dr. Cater, "says 
that the body is nothing more 
than the genes way of getting 
from one generation to anoth- 
er." So, any act that is 
apparently done by an animal 

out of love or selflessness is 
actually done for i selfish 
reasons. When applied to 
man, this theory tries' to blow 
away the argument i against 
evolution that man is unique 
in his culture from other 
animals by his moral actions 
because his loving acts are 
also selfishly based. 

Many scientists are readily 
accepting this new idea, and it 
is expected that it will be a 
serious challenee to creation 
and religion as a whole. "We 
need to raise the conscious- 
ness and awareness level of 
the church at large to; realize 
that new and subtle chal- 
lenges are coming to theolo- 
gy," stated Dr. Carter. "The 
church needs to dolresearch in 
sociobiology so that it may 
learn the challenges socio- 
biology brings and to what 
extent scientific data supports, 
this new theory."

The Student Business Analyst. 
Its built-in business formulas 
let you perform complicated

statistical functions- the ones 
that usually require a lot of 
time and a stack of reference 
books, like present and future 
value calculations, amortiza-

It all means you spend less 
time calculating, and more 
time learning. One keystroke 
takes the place of many. 
The calculator is just part 

of the package. You also get 
a book that follows most 
business courses: the Business

Southern College, Collegedale, Tenne: 

Knittel asks for one 
year sabbatical 

by Maureen Mayden 

Dr. Frank Knittel, Presi- 
dent of Southern College for 
the past 11 years, has asked 
the Board of Trustees for a 
sabbatical, effective June 1, 
1983. Knittel, who has given 
over 30 years of his life to 
administrative work in the 
denomination, feels that he 
deserves this year away from 
the pressures of work. It 
would also be a good way to 
get back into teaching, his 
first love. 

"For the last two or three 
years, I have been thinking 
about taking a sabbatical, and 
last spring, my wife and I 
decided that this would be the 
year," Knittel said. 

Dr. Knitte! stated that the 
Board was supporting him in 
his request for a sabbatical 
with the understanding that 

no strings were attached on 
either side. 

However, there are a few 
faculty members who dis- 
agree. At the last faculty 
meeting, Mr. Bob Garren, 
Professor of Art, stated, "Be- 
cause of the current unrest on 
the Southern College campus, 
a change in top leadership at 
this time seems academically 
unwise. Therefore, the 

Southern College faculty and 
staff members request that 
the Southern College Board 
withdraw Dr. Frank Knittel's 
sabbatical request for the 
1983-84 school year, and that 
he continue as president of 
this college so that he may 
continue to give us the strong 
leadership that he has in the

Buses, as well as cars, prov; 

ded transportation to the park 
where students participated in 
planned activities and games 
such as the stick relay, the 
balloon toss, couples kickball. 
and the drink-guzzling con- 
test. Chip Cannon took first 
place in the pie-eating contest, 
devouring a chocolate cream 
pie in less than one and 
one-half minutes. 

The main attraction of the 
day was a hot air balloon for 
an hour and a half during the 
afternoon. Rides were avail- 
able for the price of one dollar. 

Supper was catered by the 
cafeteria and consisted of 
vegeburgers, baked beans, 
macaroni, apple pie and ice 
cream. During the meal, 
entertainment was provided in 
the amphitheater by the White 
Oak Mountain Boys who sang 
"Foggy Mountain Break- 
down." "Rocky Top," and 
other bluegrass favorites. For 
a change of pace, Bill Young 
took the microphone and sang 
a few selections such as "If." 
and "Leavin' On a Jet Plane." 

The concert lasted about an 

hour and a half and was

pressed their concern for what 
may happen when Knittel

him in his decision. 

Knittel feels that the factions 
that are trying to insist that he 
stay are overstepping the 
boundaries into a personal 
decision. "It is a personal 
decision of mine, and I do not

Knittel thinks that admini- 
stration should be left up to 
younger administrators. "I

can better handle the burdens 
of administration." 

Byers blasts Bouquard 

by Stephen Morris 

"Quite frankly, I think Mrs. 
Bouquard is inept in the office 
and she's continued to hide 
that from the people," stated 
Dr. Glen Byers, Republican 
candidate for the Third Con- 
gressional District, during his 
brief visit to Collegedale 
Tuesday morning. 

Dr. Byers, a practicing physi- 
cian from Cleveland, is chal- 
lenging incumbant Marilyn 
Bouquard for the position of 
US Representative from the 
Third District which includes 
Hamilton County. 

"Political office should not 
be given to somebody as if it 
were some kind of award or 
honor or certificate," Byers 
said referring to the cam- 
paign. "I'm not interested in 
a nice person serving as my 

representative in the Con- 
gress, but somebody intelli- 
gent enough to understand 
problems and enough common 
sense to find solutions." 

Along with the economy and 
the impending bankruptcy of 
the Social Security system, 
Byers cited Mrs. Bouquard's 
refusal to debate and her 
unavailability to the people of 
the district as a major issue in 
the campaign. 

"Anybody who serves in this 
office who cannot debate a 
challenger certainly cannot 
debate on the floor of the US 
House of Representatives," 
declared Byers. 

Following his meeting with 
interested residents at the 
College Plaza, Byers spoke 
briefly to SC students during

According to a recent poll, newspapers are the least trusted 
of all the media. Only 16 percent said they be leved what 
they read in the newspapers. In the Collegedale area the 
media has a credibility problem. Certain pubucatoas have 
slanted the facts, tainted the truth, and printed outright lies. 
However, they have mixed in just enough truth to give 
credibility to their accusations and stones. 

So where does all this leave the Southern Accent? Wll 
Southern College's student newspaper become a radical 
publication, printing harsh, cutting statements about people 
in authority and questioning the basic doctrines ot the 
church? Or will the Accent become a public relations tool ot 
the college, printing only "good" news and side-stepping 
the issues of today? Hopefully neither. 

The staff of the Southern Accent have one mam goal--to 
relay the unslanted facts to the student body of Southern 
College. We will not attempt to make your decisions for you. 

Rather, we will supply the news to assist you in the important 

decisions in the future. 
Keeping the Accent's goal in mind, we also have a second 

goal in mind--to entertain you. Through our "Southern 

Cynic" column and other columns and features we want to 

keep you up to date on the lighter side of college life. 
This will not all be easy. To meet these goals will mean lots 

of hard work. But the students need to be able to trust their 

paper and be pleased with the outcome. 
Here's your part. To help maintain a r

Dear Editor, 
In writing this article I do not 
intend to belittle or criticize 
our college's deans or admin- 
istration; rather, I wish to 
relate to them a mounting 
concern and frustration which 
is manifesting itself among 
the student body. While I do 
believe it is the responsibility 
of the administration to 
designate a code of conduct 
and to enforce it, I do not 
believe in "rules for the sake 
of having rules." In the 
process of protecting our 
student body from both the 
unchristian influences out in 
"The World" and from 
themselves, it would seem 
that the ' 'rules' ' are becoming 
capricious. In an effort to 
curtail indiscriminate displays 
of public "passion," the 
administration's policies are 
regressing to a position par- 
allel to those "strictly en- 
forced' ' in our denomina- 
tion's academiesl 

While there do exist irre- 
sponsible couples on our 
campus, most are considerate 
of both possible onlookers and 
their own privacy. I fear that 
by the strict enforcement of 
"No PDA," the administra- 
tion is only making matters 
worse. In accordance with 
Newton's Law "for every 
action there is an equal and 
opposite reaction," we might 
be faced with more than just a 
public display of affection! 
Human nature will always 
dictate rebellion when faced 
with suppression. For 

example, a young man (a 
student) walked his girlfriend 
to work in Wright Hall and, as 
he said good bye, kissed her 
on her cheek. As the students 

were parting a faculty member 
promptly, in a harsh, 
commanding tone, repri- 
manded the young woman, 
telling her how disrespectful 
was the act she has just 
Does a simple, innocent good 
bye kiss constitute offensive 
PDA? What will be next? 
Will it be wrong to hold hands 
or sit next to a member of the 
opposite sex in the cafeteria or 
at chapel? While these may 
be extreme positions, it is also 
ridiculous to expect collegiates 
to act like pre-academy stu- 
dents! We have emotions that 
are as real, mature and Chris- 
tian as any member of the 
If it appears that I'm 
attempting to judge our school 
by "worldly" standards, I am. 
For it should be pointed out 
that we live in this world and 
are creatures of it. We have 
human passions and desires, 
but as Seventh-day Adventists 
we see and react to them 
through the Word of God. If 
God had not intended youth 
to experience Love, it would 
seem He would have limited 
our capacity to comprehend 
what the apostle Paul was 
expressing in I Corinthians 13. 
Now would we be able to 
distinguish between our love- 
reactions with our parents, 
pets, teachers, friends or 
Jesus Himself. While there 
are students in attendance 
here on campus who may not 
have reached the level of 
understanding it takes to 
become committed for a life- 
time relationship; neverthe- 
less, they are gaining both 
insight and appreciation from 
their existing love relation- 

ship. Out of which will 
blossom a deeper and more 
complex comprehension of 
what love can truly be. 
What I'm trying to express is 
a wish for the faculty and staff 
to be more considerate of 
those students whose possible 
maturity is being trampled. 
There is also a need for the 
student body to improve on its 
discretion concerning "Public 
Passion" versus "Public 
Affection." One last word of 
warning: the more strictly a 
rule is enforced, the more 
eager and determined the 
oppressed will be to overrule 
that law. In all sincerity we 
ask, are you emulating the 
Pharisees by attempting to 
enforce an unkeepable and 
unfair law?

Benefits derived from a 
competitive recreation pro- 
gram can far outweigh any 
negative outcome that results 
from competition. 

Whether on an individual 
level or in a team situation, 
competition in sports can rein- 
force attitudes and behaviors 
that directly transfer over to 
one's everyday life. 

There are many business 
companies who look for work- 
ers who have been involved in 
some type of athletic compe- 
tition. Their contention, with 
which this author agrees is 
that by being involved in 
sports competition a person 
can and has learned how to 
cope with winning and losing. 

As a team has strived for a 
common goal, cooperation, 
adaptation to various situa- 
tions and loyalty have been 
established and reinforced. A 
competitor has learned that 
personal satisfaction as well as 
success hinges on his ability to 
put forth his best effort. 
These behaviors so necessary 
to being successful in athletic 
competition are then also seen 
as those characteristics neces- 
sary to be successful in the 
business world. 
Looking at competition from 
another perspective, seems to 
also point out the need for a 
competitive sports program. 
During the past two years 
there have been well over 2400 

participants in intramural 
programs here at Southern 
College. Why have so many 
people become involved in 
intramural competition? 

There are many possible 
answers to this question. 

First, it is fun to compete and 
achieve success. Intramurals 
is organized in such a way that 
for the most part, the partici- 
pant is competing with people 
of like abilities. This allows 
for success to be achieved 
more readily. 

Second, intramural competi- 
tion provides a needed di- 
version from one's daily 
activity. Many individuals 
need this diversion in the form 
of structured competition. 

Third, competition provides a 
way for a person to have some 
type of physical exercise. 
Many times competitive ath- 
letics is the only form of 
exercise a student takes time 
from his studies to participate 

Through strong positive lead- 
ership, benefits derived from 
a competitive recreational 
program can far outweigh any 
negative outcome that results 
from competition.

Perhaps more than is usually 
the case, I wish for this 
column to provoke serious, 
aggressive thought. I want to 
join minds with you as a 
reader. I want to challenge 
you to read these seven propo- 
sitions about an experience 
that touches all our lives. 
Then I want you to wrestle 
with them until you can either 
say that you agree with them, 
or you know exactly, precisely, 
logically why you disagree 
with them. I doubt that, as a 
church or as individuals, we 
can afford much more "non- 
think" on this powerful life 

First, a functional definition 
of this thing called competi- 
It is any goal-oriented 

tuation in which the motiva- 
tor action comes from an 
ego-centered desire to exalt 
one's self above another. As 
such, we see competition not 
so much as an act or event, but 
as an attitude of the mind. It 
is one method for questing 
after self-worth and self- 

Among the many things that 
could be said, I would like to 
make these brief assertions 
about the nature and effects of 
competition in the life of a 
Christian. What do you think 
of them? 

1. Competition is so popular 
because it is the most readily 

available motivation. Ask any 
parent, teacher, pastor, politi- 
cian, or other person involved 
in getting people to do some- 
thing, and they will agree that 
competition gives them an 
instant handle. "Kids, see 
who can be the first to clean 
up your room." "The first 
ones to get their Ingathering 
goals will receive blue rib- 
bons. " " Pastors baptizing 
the most persons this year will 
have their names published on 
the back page of the Journal." 
Almost all of us will jump at a 
chance to have our egos 
stroked by being thought of as 
smarter, stronger, faster, 
more dedicated, more cap- 
able, than someone else. All 
we need is for someone to 
define a "win-lose" situation, 
and we're off and running not 
to be the loser. Competition is 
a constant revelation of our 

2. Competition places a low 
value on human worth. It tells 
me that I can use another 
person's loss for my gain. It 
teaches me to disregard the 
hidden anguish of the one 
whose losing gives substance 
to my winning. It leads me to 
conclude that my worth is 
based, not on some absolute 
accomplishment of my own in 
the world of real endeavor, but 
rather on whether I have 
simply bested someone else. 
And when a person can no 
longer compete, we put him 
on the shelf. Could this be 
why our society tends to 
' 'warehouse" the elderly, 
since they are no longer 

3. Competition teaches con- 
formity rather than individual- 
ity. Since the initial motiva- 
tion for the act comes from the 
quest for the crowd's approv- 
al, one dares not do that which 
the crowd will disapprove. 
The individualist, by contrast, 
does not float with the crowd. 
Possessing a strong inner 
sense of self-worth, he neither 
plays to the audience, nor 
spums those who do not fit his 
mold. But competition is an 
organized system of passing 
out applause or rejection for 
behaviors which either con- 
form or fail to conform to the 
values of the crowd. 

4. Competition reinforces the 
philosophy of evolution rather 
than of creation. It is an 
outgrowth of the philosophy 
that says we got here by the 
process of the survival of the 
fittest. It says that since there 
.is no meaningful destiny 
beyond this life, I must grab 
all I can get this time around, 
and that the only rewards I 
will enjoy are those that come 
by being tougher, faster, 
smarter, in this life. Coopera- 
tion, on the other hand, is the 
outgrowth of a philosophy that 
sees helping, caring human 
relationships as directly re- 

, lated to our ultimate destiny. 

5. Competition is alien to the 
spirit of servanthood which 
Jesus advocated. Jesus fre- 
quently commented on the 
spirit of striving against others 
which characterized the 
society around Him. And His 
appraisal was always the 
same- "It shall not be so 

among you." (Matthew 20:25- 
27; 23:1-11.) By contrast, 
Jesus wanted His friends to be 
moved by the same spirit 
which had prompted Him to 
humbly step down from the 
exalted throne, and to go on 
such a costly errand of ser- 
vanthood to save us. We are 
constantly faced with two 
polar opposites in our rela- 
tionships with others-either 
to meet out own needs, or the 
needs of the other person. 
Servanthood says, "Jesus has 
already met my needs; let me 
help meet yours." Competi- 
tion says, "I've got to get 

6. Competition is not neces- 
sary for the Christian. He has 
found something so much 
higher to motivate his life. It's 
called love. All that needs to 
be done, love is .an ample 
motive to do. If love doesn't 
motivate it, it doesn't need, to 
be done. To try to entice a 
mature Christian into an 
action by the offer of compete 
tive reward would be to offer 
him a painful insult. 

7. Competition cannot be 
used to build the kingdom of 
Christ. There is no natural, 
harmonious place for competi- 
tion in the life of the church, or 
of the individual Christian. 
For the kingdom of Christ is 
not buildings, finances, or 
even activities, but a spirit in 
the hearts of people who have 
been made secure in the love 
of their Lord, and who need no 
cheap human conquests to 
supplement the power of that 
great, healing gift.

Knittel celebrates fifty-fifth 

Frank Knittel celebrated his 
fifty-fifth birthday on Septem- 
ber 30 with students of 
Southern College. 

After Dr. Knittel's chapel 
talk to the SEA, Melvin 
Campbell and Jeanette 
Stepanske escorted him to the 
cafeteria on false premises. 

Upon his arrival, "the white 
carpet" was rolled out by 
Tricia Smith and Malinda 
McKee down the middle aisle 
of the cafeteria. As he 
proceeded down the aisle to 
the heralding of the brass 
quartet, students and faculty 
arose in tribute to his years of 


Knittel was greeted at the 
platform by his wife Helen and 
daughter Sherry. Balloons 
were released as Frank Roman 
-led the crowd in "Happy 
Birthday," with the accom- 
paniment of the brass quartet. 

Frank Roman then gave an 
analogy of "This is Your Life, 
Frank Knittel." During 

Knittel's response to this, a 
large birthday cake was 
brought forward with the tra- 
ditional candles. 

Student Association Presi- 
dent, Alvin Franklin, 
presented Dr. Knittel with a 

gift from the students. After 
some difficulty in opening the 
package, Knittel found the gift 
to be a cordless telephone. 
Celebrating Knittel's birth- 
day has always been a tradi- 
tion at Southern College, but it 
has not always been cele- 
brated by the entire student 
body. In past years, personal 
jokes have been played on 
Knittel, such as filling . his 
office with balloons and paper, 
or hanging in front of Wright 
Hall a banner saying, "Happy 
Birthday, Frankie Baby!" 

Southern College Fall Retreat Scheduled 

by Catherine Llnrud 
The Chaplain's office has 
been hard at work planning 
the fall Bible Conference. The 
Southern College Fall Retreat, 
as it is being called, has been 
slated for October 14-17 at 
Cohutta Springs Camp. 

Campus Chaplain, Jim Her- 
man, who is responsible for 
the Retreat, says, "It will be a 
mixture of inspirational and 
recreational activities. A 
variety of special speakers will 
present the inspirational part 
of the program while students 
will be in charge of the 
recreational activities." 
The featured speaker will be 
Elder Philip Samaan. Samaan 
graduated from Portland 
Adventist Academy and Walla 
Walla College. He received 

his Masters degrees in Divin- 
ity and Public Health from 
Andrews University and Loma 
Linda University, and is now 
pursuing a doctorate degree in 
ministry. He pastored in the 
Idaho Conference for three 
years before accepting a call to 
the North Pacific Union Con- 
ference as Director of Out- 
reach and Campus Ministries. 

Pastor Samaan enjoys spend- 
ing the most of his time in the 
field, involved in youth out- 
reach on the nine academy 
campuses, at Walla Walla 
College and public university 
campuses and with other 
church youth. 

The other speakers involved 
in the Retreat include Georgia 
Cumberland Conference 

Youth Director Lewis Hender- 
shot, Andy McDonald, pastor 
of the Cohutta church, and Dr. 
Frank Knittel. 

The activities that have been 
planned include group games, 
volleyball; basketball, hiking, 
and water skiing. 

Jan Rice, the Chaplain's 
secretary noted, "the trans- 
portation and lodging will be 
free so the only expense will 
be for the food, and that can 
be charged on their bill. I 
think this Retreat will give us 
a good chance to get away 
from it all, have a real break, 
and a good time together." 

Anyone interested in attend- 
ing the Fall Retreat should

Approximately 100 theology

Among the topics of interest 
addressed by Dr. Edwards 
was the concept of "every

An excellent turnout was on 
hand to witness the all-night 
slowpitch softball tournament 
held on Saturday night Sep- 
tember 25. The tournament 
was a double elimination for-

8-0 records in the regular 
season, were seeded to meet

as most expected, was what

The final fastpitch games of 
the season were played on 
Saturday night, October 2, 
with the annual dorm tourna- 
ment sponsored by the Talge 
Hall Men's Club. The tourn- 
ey consisted of four teams: 
t, second, and third floors 
of Talge, and a village team 
with Tim Beaulieu, Jim Dob- 
son. Don Duff, and Brad 
Durby heading up the four 
squads respectively. The 
tournament started at 8:00 
p.m. with first playing second 
and third playing village with 
the winners scheduled to 1 
for the championship. 

The game between first

run in the top of the firsl 
inning, and holding a 1-0 lead 
through three innings. How-

his games en route to finals, 
including a dramatic come 
from behind 10-9 victory over

scored nine runs, the last five 
with two outs to win the 
contest. The final blow was a 
three-run homer by Jim 

The final game between 
Russell and Greve was played 
at 6:00 Sunday morning.

game to clinch the champion-

four runs. Shortstop Jerry 
Russell led off with a home 
run over the centerfield fence. 
David Botimer then followed 
with a single to left. Then 
with a two-strike count Kelly 
Pettijohn hit another home run 
to make the score 3-1. John 
Grys scored another run in the 
inning and also made an 
unassisted double play at third 
base to end a second floor 
scoring threat, making the 
final score 5-1 in favor of first 

The game between third floor

Durby and Greg Culpepper 
each hit about four home runs 
throughout the night to lead 
Russell to victory.

Pastor Gordon Bietz 

The new pastor preached on 
repentance the first Sabbath 
in his new church. Everyone 
raved about his sermon and all 
were pleased with their new 
pastor. The second Sabbath 
he preached on repentance 
again. It was a good sermon 
but the church members were 
not sure it was that good. 
They let it pass for that 
Sabbath but when he 
preached it again the third 
Sabbath in a row, some of the 
members of the board went to 
him and said,"We enjoyed the 
sermon on repentance the first 
time and it was o.k. even the 
second time, but three times 
for the same sermon? When 
are you going to preach about 
something else?" The 

preacher replied with a 
question of his own, "When 
are you going to repent?" 
Sometimes certain stories 
need repeating, and so it is 
with the following. 
Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest there was a lovely 
bluebird that enjoyed life to 
the full. She fluttered and 
flew from tree to tree and from 
bush to bush enjoying the sun, 
rain, and the sheer pleasure of 
flight. In fact, if there was 
ever a bird that enjoyed life, it 
was Bright Bluebird. Bright 
was not her original name, but 
she was given that name by 
the animals of the forest 
because of her cheery outlook 
on life. She enjoyed flying 
into the deep blue sky and 

letting the sun shine on her 
fluttering feathers reflecting 
an iridescent blue which 
blended with the blue sky. 
Bright had many friends be- 
cause of her lust for life and 
she enjoyed them all; in fact, 
her natural enemies, like Cur- 
tains the cat, even seemed to 
enjoy her distant company. 
When she was around, the day 
was bright and the air tingled 
with the crisp anticipation of 
Bright was a sensitive bird 
and was always hurt person- 
ally when any little tragedy 
happened in Fenton Forest 
where she made her home. 
One day as Bright was silently 
winging her way over a forest 
path, she heard her name 
mentioned and like any 
curious person would, she 
silently swooped to a tree limb 
and picked up her ears to hear 
what was being said. It was 
Ears Rabbit and jealous Randy 
Raccoon talking together 
about Bright. Randy said, "It 
just makes me sick how Bright 
is always flying around here 
like every day was her birth- 
day. I get tired of this 
eternally happy chirp, chirp, 
chirp." Randy imitated the 
song that Bright always sang 
as she flew over the forest. "I 
wish she would stop all this 
happiness routine and mind 

"I know what you mean," 
replied Ears Rabbit. "I would 
like to know if she knows how 

sick everybody is getting of 
her cheery routine." 
Curtains the cat overheard 
this conversation and for a 
long time he had been eyeing 
the new nest where little birds 
would soon be hatched, and he 
was happy to hear these 
complaints, because he had 
been afraid of what the other 
animals of Fenton Forest 
might do to him if he struck 
while Bright was popular. 

Bright flew on through the 
forest after listening to this 
conversation, but she did not 
sing her happy song the rest of 
the way back to the nest. The 
day didn't seem half so bright 
and the air was not quite as 
crisp, and there was a kind of 
heavy feeling in her heart. 
She warmed her eggs briefly 
and then flew out to get some 
food, but she was preoccupied 
and she couldn't find any- 
thing. She flew lower over the 
field - her wings a little bit 
droopy - it seemed that her 
heart was heavy and weighing 
her down in flight. Her mind 
was whirling - "Am I stupid 
for being so happy? Do the 
other animals in the forest 
think I'm a dumb scatterbrain 
who doesn't know what life is 
all about?" As she flew low 
over the marsh she saw a lot of 
birds chatting on the old dead 
tree that stood by the marsh. 
She normally would have 
joined them, but now—she 
thought that they were talking 
about her, in fact she was sure 

they were, and so she flew on, 
ignoring them. 

Soon the animals began to 
notice that Bright was not so 
cheery anymore and they 
began to really talk about her 
and the more they talked, the 
more she avoided them and 
the more she avoided them the 
more they talked, and soon 
Bright began to overhear 
many conversations about her. 
"What is wrong with Bright? 
How come she is so strange 
lately? Her poor children that 
have grow up in her nest." 

Bright was losing sleep and 
weight. She couldn*t get the 
food she used to get, because 
her mind was on other things. 
She was hardly able to keep up 
enought heat to warm her 
eggs, and in fact she was 
spending less time on her 
eggs and they were dying 
from lack of care. Everybody 
was talking about her in 
Fenton Forest. 

Bright's wings were not as 
brilliant as they used to be. 
She wasn't caring for herself 
like she had been. She no 
longer flew high over the 
forest in the sun but she would 
dart in and out among the 
trees staying away from others 
and staying in the dark. Soon 
her natural enemies got the 
courage to do what they had 
previously been prevented 
from doing by popular opin- 
ion. Bright became afraid of 
every shadow and every noise. 

Even though she was uncom- 

fortable flying in the dark part 
of the forest, she thought that 
she would not be seen as much 

One day after having not 
eaten anything for some time, 
she was weakly flying home 
between some trees when a 
loud noise startled her. Not 
being used to the dark part of 
the forest, she quickly turned 
from the noise and in a second 
was going full speed 
different direction only to I 
collide with a tree and fall to 
her death on the forest floor. 

There she lay unnoticed for a 
time until Ears Rabbit and 
Randy Raccoon happened by I 
there one day and found a few 
faded blue feathers where j 
Bright had fallen. 

"Too bad about Bright," 
said Ears. 

"Yes," said Randy, "she I 
seemed to lose her lust for | 

"I wonder why," Ears said. 

"Yes," repeated Randy, "I 
wonder why?" 

"We think with horror of the | 
cannibal who feasts o: 
still-warm and trembling flesh | 
of his victim; but an 
results of even this practice | 
more terrible than an 
agony and ruin caused by I 
misrepresenting motive, f 

blackening reputation, dis- 1 
secting character?" ED

to the urge to kill. He thai J

It's here! A new trend is 
sweeping the campus of SC. 
This one beats Valley Girls, 
alligators and even the tradi- 
tion of taking all your dates to 
Taco Bell. 

It's called Editor Trading, or 
E.T. for short. You may have 
heard about it this summer; it 
even made Newsweek, which 
was impressive, considering 
the fad just started a few 
weeks ago. 

It really began when AENO 
(Accent Editor Number One) 
vacationed for a short period 
of time. Editor Number Two 
took the desk, only to leave it 
almost as soon as he got it. 

According to him, he "just 
couldn't handle editing Victor 
Czerkasij's column twice a 
month." Understandable. 
Number Two, by the way, is 
now undergoing remedial 
psychotherapy and hopes to 
be fully recovered by May. 
Enter Editor Number Three. 
By this time, the craze had hit 
full force. Posters were going 
up and speeches were deliver- 
ed every hour on the hour. 
Kids from Spaulding began 
saying "when I grow up, I 
want to run for editor of the 
Accent." Candidates for the 
coveted position wore non- 
fadeable smiles and over- 

flowed with syrup. For a 
week, Accent candidates were 
the only individuals on 
campus who likes everybody. 
It was phenomenal. 

However, the exertion and 
strain from the race has taken 
its toll on our present editor. 
He announced just yesterday 
that he would have to resign 
for at least a year to recuper- 
ate from the strain of getting 
himself elected. 

So in desperation our SA 
president is taking a new 
approach to the E.T. trend. 
Starting next Monday, 
"Editor-of-the-Week" will 
become a reality at SC. All of 

the student's names will be 
printed up on slips of paper 
and dumped into a hat. Every 
Sunday at noon, the editor 
from the previous week will 
make a guest appearance in 
the cafeteria to draw one of 
the names from the hat. The 
winner, of couse, will receive a 
complimentary issue of the 
Accent and a bouquet of 
black-and-white roses. 
However, lest you think that 
just anyone can be editor, let 
me clarify this. There are 
certain stipulations which a 
person has to meet before he 
takes the oath of office. He 
has to have at least a third- 


grade education, be semi- 
literate, have taken several 
public relations courses and 
know how to smile. 

Aside from these require- 
ments, all that is necessary is 
a valid ID card at SC. I know 
everyone is looking forward to 
the upcoming "Editor-of-the- 
Week" plan, and I'm sure this 
installment will insure a new 
and excitingly different 
Southern Accent this year.

Dear Howard Cosell: 
Maybe somebody forgot to 
inform you, but a women's 
intramural program does 
exist here at Southern 
college. What about some 
"Time Out" for the 
women's league? Two 
issues have been published 
without even one word 
mentioned about the games 
on the other side of campus. 
We wouldn't expect you to 
analyze each team, but it 
might be nice to see the 
standings once in a while, 
I after all, we pay for this 

paper, too. 
I The games are at 5:30 
I p.m., but if you have too 
I many "other" games to 
I analyze, you can always call 
I the gym for the results.

Phone system plans finalized 

I The familiar clicking of 
phones when all the lines on 
:ampus are busy will, by the 
niddle of February, be only an 
[inpleasant memory for the 
ulty and students of SC if 
1 goes as expected with the 
Installation of a new phone 

I The Ooltewah-Collegedale 
elephone Company has 
Irdered a new digital switch- 
7hg system which is "the 
in electronic equip- 
according to Mr. David 
^tkins, administrative coordi- 
r of the company. Call 
arding, call waiting, 
:-way dialing, and an 
:ase of speed in dialing 
Ind transferral of calls are 
advantages of the system. 
e main feature, however, is 
it it wilj allow for "full 
th," which means that half 
i phones on campus, which 

is about 450, will be able to be 
used in talking with the other 
half. This is a big improve- 
ment to the 42 paths that are 
available in the present 
college-owned Centrex 

system. Another difference is 
that the system will be con- 
trolled from the newly con- 
structed facility in Ooltewah, 
whereas the heart of the 
Centrex system is at the 
switchboard in Wright Hall. 

It is not presently known just 
to what extent the new system 
will assist in making long- 
distance calls and calls to 
Chattanooga and off campus, 
but it is expected that a great 
improvement will be noticed. 

When the switch to the new 
system takes place, new 
phone numbers will be 
assigned to the campus with 
the exchange numbers being 
changed from 396 to 238. 

Because of its large size and 
remoteness, the college has 
been chosen to be the first in 
the Collegedale-Ooltewah- 
Apison area in what will 
eventually be a complete 
changeover for all numbers 
beginning with 396 or 236 to 
238. Mr. Ken Spears, Busi- 
ness Manager for SC, had the 
tedious job this summer of 
assigning numbers to every 
phone on campus. The 
phones in Thatcher Hall, as 
well as the administration's 
and faculty's phones, will 
have the numbers 2000-2999, 
while the numbers in Talge 
Hall will be in the 3000 range. 
The numbers have been 
correlated to the rooms in the 
dorms, so that, for example, 
the complete phone number £S 
for room #260 in Thatcher Hall 
will be 238-2260.

Elder Clay Farwell, president 
of the Kentucky -Tennessee 
conference, addressed the 
student body this past Tues- 
day at chapel. Farwell's talk 
was entitled, "Famine in the 
Land." It emphasized plant- 
ing ourselves firmly with our 
Lord and listening to His 

One of the main highlights of 
Elder Farwell's talk was an 
experience that he had in 
Acapulco. It involved a situ- 
ation where Farwell neglected 
to listen carefully to a para- 
glider instructor. Farwell's 
wife and friends had success- 
fully enjoyed their flight over 
the ocean and landed grace- 
fully on the beach. 

When Elder Farwell took his 
turn, it proved to be wet and 
embarrassing since he failed 
to listen carefully to his 
Mexican instructor. This 
experience was tied into the 
talk in which Farwell said, 
"People, there is a real famine 
in the world today, not just of 
bread and water but of listen- 
ing to the word of God." 

President Knittel was sched- wflk 

uled to speak during this ^W 

chapel, but a communication 
mixup occurred. President 
Knittel will speak next Tues- 
day instead. 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/October 14, 1982 

A house divided... 

There is a problem in our church and at Southern College 
which can no longer be ignored. The problem to which I am 
referring is not the difference of theological opinion, but 
rather that of the conflict over it. Theological discussion has 
its place; without a written creed, will there not always be 
minor doctrinal discrepencies in the SDA Church? But the 
shrieking and howling and the insults hurled ceaselessly 
between factions,, have no place. As I was observing a 
particularly vitriolic argument the other day, the thought 
occured to me that, paradoxically, the people who are 
causing the most commotion are the ones who are the least 
sure of their premises. May I suggest that the next time you 
rise to the defense of "your side," ask yourself, "Am I 
fighting for a spiritual conviction or am I fighting to maintain 
my ego?" And if your reason is strictly religious, try to keep 
your discussion strictly religious also. Personal insults and 
scathing accusations only hinder the situation and point out 
the insecurity of your cause. 
I have heard many people criticizing "the church" for the 
mess it is in. Can't we realize that we are "the church"? 
The time is past for us to stand piously aside, virtuously 
pointing the finger of condemnation at an isolated group of 
hierarchy. God's church is a body composed of each one of 
us, and as Christians our ultimate goal should be 
membership in God's kingdom. We can't love God and hate 
our brother. We'll never be able to share Heaven without 
working together. 
"A house divided against itself cannot stand." Luke 11:17.

The whitetail is the most 
numerous and popular big 
game animal in North Amer- 
ica. The habits of the wary 
and resourceful animal are 
well worthy of study. 
The white-tailed deer is the 
most tolerant of our big game 
species. In contrast to the 
buffalo, elk, moose, and other 
relatives, the deer can live 
close to man with little diffi- 
culty. Few large animals are 
capable of such eye-popping 
increases in numbers when 
the basic needs of food and 
shelter are matched by good 

The "rutting" season (when 
bucks compete for the does) 
covers most of the fall and 
winter months. Production, 
like antler growth and weight, 
is affected by age, heredity, 
and geography, but most 
importantly by the quality and 
quantity of food. 

Winter is the critical time for 
most animals, and many 
whitetail problems can be 
traced to food shortages from 
January to March. While few 
deer die of starvation alone 
parasites and disease strike 
susceptable animals on badly 
overbrowsed range. High 
water may also pose problems 
as did the heavy rains that hit 
the Everglades in June and 
July of this past summer.

Another difference in this 
production is the place where

using the Read House in

play will be held in the 
House's silver ballroom, along 
with an Italian meal of spa- 
ghetti, sauce and salad. Sev- 
eral of the actors will be used 
as waiters and actually serve 
the audience while the play is 
in progress. 

Ticket prices range from 
$19/couple, for Sc students, to 
S25/couple. Individual tickets 
are $9.50 and 512.50 a person. 
The play will run October 24th 
and 25th. 

Though "Scapino" is cer- 
tainly deviating from the usual 
type of play performed by SC, 
students and faculty alike are 
encouraged to adventurous

and enjoy themselves.

alike will find this play

The Student Association-- Is it serving its purpose? 


by Joseph Robertson 



The Student Association is 
exactly what the name 
implies, an organization of 
and for the sutdents of South- 
ern College (SC). Our Student 
Association (SA) serves the 
majority interest of all the 
students through various 
means. The organization has 
yearly elections for its execu- 
tive officers to guide the 
organization the following 
year. In the fall semester, 
Senate representatives are 
elected for each of the 26 
precincts. Each year the SA 
budget is created by member- 
ship dues which are taken 
automatically out of tuition 
fees; it is 1.25 percent of the 
full-time tuition charge. These 
dues are among the lowest in 
the North American Division, 
yet of all SDA colleges SC has 
one of the most active SA 
The budget each year is 

earmarked specifically for that 
year's activities and functions 
6T the SA. What does the 
budget pay for? The biggest 
portion of the budget goes for 
the various publications; in 
fact, that portion accounts for 
49 percent of the total SA 
budget. This includes the 
Southern Accent, Southern 
Memories, the Joker and the 
Numerique. which are distri- 
buted to students at no 
charge. It also may be noted 
that all of these this year have 
been out earlier than in times 
past. Another major part of 
the budget, 16 percent is used 
for the Social Activities and 
Student Services, including 
such things as the SA Ban- 
quets, Saturday night pro- 
grams, and other parties in 
between. Student Services 
sponsors ' 'Take-a-break' ' 

{Cookie breaks), vans each 
week to the local malls and 
many things to enable you to 
have a more enjoyable life on 
Aside from the busy social 
schedule that the SA works to 
create, they are the connection 
between students and the 
college administration, the 
SA is a due paying member of 
the 'Committee of 100* and 
therefore has the rights of a 
member, such as voting power 
and the right to sit in on 
College Board meetings. 

Here the SA can voice the 
opinions and or mood of the 
students to those who have 
direct authority over the Col- 
lege. In the circle of the 
college administration the SA 
is able to let the administra- 
tors know just what they think 
about the issues at hand. The 
SA is fortunate to have a good 
working relationship with our 
College President, who has 
always solicited the SA's 
input, and respects their opin- 
ions as they speak for the 
student body. 

The SA may also sit in on 
Faculty Senate and participate 
in the discussions so the 
faculty representatives _ can 
hear what the students may 
feel about happenings relating 
to the college, while at the 
same time the SA can hear the 
comments of the faculty mem- 
bers as to what they feel is 

An issue of major importance 
with which the SA has dealt 
this year is the placement of 
the new Learning Center. 
During the summer, when the 
college recieved the US Grant 
for the learning center, the 
administration decided to 
locate the center in the Stu- 
dent Lounge of the Student 
Center and/or the game room. 

At first it seemed as though 
the administration was 
planning to go through with its 

plans in our Student Center, 
without consulting the SA. 
But President Franklin 
researched the matter and 
insisted that other alternatives 
be studied, -alternatives such 
as the library, Miller Hall. 
The SA was then invited to be 
on the committees that were to 
study the placement possibil- 
ities, and were also consulted 
several times about the project 
itself. The outcome: the 
Lounge and game room are 
safe. The administration 
decided to put the center in 
the Assembly room, so there 
are no highly used student 
areas being taken, and the 
administration, for whatever 
reason, can have the Learning 
Center in the Student Center. 
If students check the events 
calender for next semester, 
they will note that in February 
there is a "Ski day." On this 
big Ski day the SA will host a 
day, and go on a trip to Beach 
Mt. Resort in North Carolina. 
(A Snow Ski Resort). The day 
didn't appear on trie-calendar. 
It took quite a bit of lobbying 
of the administration to get 
them to agree to it. Here 
again, President Franklin did 
a super job hi speaking for the 
best interest of the student 

Checking the not so distant 
past, it can be seen that it was 
the SA Senate who persuaded 

the faculty to vote in favor of a 
new jeans policy, that is, a 
policy permitting students to 
wear jeans to classes. In the 
1981-82 school year the Senate 
did a great deal of research 
among the faculty and the [ 
students, and presented the J 
results to the administration. 
Then they asked for the policy J 
change and a vote was taken. 1 
Needless to say, the policy j 
was changed. 
Yes, I feel very strongly that I 
the Student Association is I 
serving a very valuable pur- ; 
pose, as it continually works J 
for each student. If eve 
student has a grievance, i 
they feel the administration J 
has not handled it correctly, [ 
they should feel free to discuss ij 
it with any SA representative. 
There are open lines of I 
communication between the l[ 
SA Office -and Wright Hall, j 
and the SA strives to use those j 
lines to get what is best for the 
srudents of Southern College. 
The SA feel that their duty to I 
the student is to do all they | 
can to improve campus life. 
Whether it is in planning big I 
banquets or programs, 
keeping the Student Center! 
Lounge from being taken over, f 
the Student Association is a 
important part of it all. And"! 
what is the Student Associa-I 
tion? It is each individual j 


Many students don't realize 
that they are being pampered 
into submission. The main 
tool of the pampering process 
is the SA. If the students are 
kept happy with full banquets, 
great picnics, enjoyanie 
movies on Friday afternoons, 
and decent chapel programs, 

everyone will go along with 
whatever is thrown at them. I 
think this is pure unadulter- 
ated bologna. It's sad that so 
many are suckered into think- 
ing that nothing can be done 
about important issues, or as 
the saying goes, "You can't 
fight Wright Hall." 

Social events should not be 
the main thrust of the SA. As 
a student at the Bronx High 
School of Science, I could 
depend on the SA to air the 
grievances of the student body 
in a most effective way. I can 
remember the great student 
strike of '78 when the students 
peacefully did not go to class- 
es until the administration 
took time to really listen to 
them. Strangely enough, this 
tactic worked. I'm not sug- 
gesting that a mass revolt is 
the only way to solve prob- 
lems. What I'm saying is that 
decisive measures should be 
taken to show the administra- 
tion that we mean business. 
For example, I was insulted 
when I was told that I could 

not have a television in my 
room because 1) f*didn't know 
how to study and 2) I didn't 
know what to watch. I know 
there are many who felt the 
same way. 
I think there is a feasible way 
of solving this problem. 
During the first nine weeks of 
school a freshman would not 
be permitted to have a televi- 
sion. Thereafter, if an accept- 
able GPA is achieved, he 
would be allowed to have a 
. television set --only on the 
premise that he maintains a 
GPA above the minimum set 
by the school and stated in the 
SC catalog. If the student's 
GPA goes below the set 
minimum then he would not 
be allowed to have a television 
set for another nine-week 
period. That, to me, is a 
reasonable plan. 
If students would take the 
tune to state their grievances 
to the SA and would put them 
under pressure to take action 
1 m sure some things would 
change. But most students 

appear to be either indiffer- 
ent, apathetic, ignorant, or 
just plain scared to speak up. 

I haven't forgotten that the 
faculty can veto any action 
taken by the SA. This is their 
ultimate weapon. But the 
power to veto should not be 
the end of an issue. The 
faculty should be obligated to 
provide a good solid reason for 
their decision, and the student 
body should have a right to 
ask for this reason. 

Another factor that causes 
the SA to be ineffective is 
communication repression and 
punishment. It is a known fact 
that those who speak out 
against the establishment 
either get shot, burned, or are 
given a custom-made pair of 
cement shoes. Martin Luther 
King and John Huss are prime 
examples. They wanted to 
communicate their grievances 
to the world. But their 
attempt to communicate was 
repressed and they were 
punished. There is danger of 
being put on the SC hit list if 

one is too verbal in nisi 
complaints. What we need 
are people who are not afraid 
to speak out against the 
repression • that exists t» 
abundantly on this campus. 
The silent majority needs to 
wake up and come alive. If* 
were to show the administra- 
tion that we were serious, 
maybe some of the closed 
minds would open up. Then 
maybe we could have M 
effective SA. But until then I 
guess I'll just have to tolerate 
the repression and punish- 
ment. Well, at least I have^

The blue sphere came off the 
back wall of the raquet ball 
court. This is going to be a 
piece of cake — ' 'kill' ' — the 
thought goes through my head 
as 1 cock my arm and wrist to 
blast the ball to infinity. Then 
in a nanosecond I think, "Fake 
him out, dump the shot in the 
corner," and so my muscles 
that are prepared for a ball 
breaking shot relax ever so 
slightly. Then, in another 
nanosecond, I think, "But I 
have had good success with 
the kill shot." My muscles 
tighten. Another nanosecond 
and the thought passes that I 

need to vary my game. Once 
again 1 think of softly easing 
the ball into the corner. 

You guessed it, by now the 
opportune time has passed, I 
hit a half slam, half dump shot 
which equals a piece of cake 
for my opponent who is not so 
indecisive. He rips the ball 
and I lose the point. 

There is a time in life for 
decision and a time in life for 
discussion. The time for 
discussion is not when the 
little blue ball hangs over the 
floor at the serve line while 
you stand there with your 
racket cocked. 

There are people who can 
never decide to decide and so 
they meander through life like 
the river whose course is 
decided by the silt that it 
dumps along the way. An 
embankment here, some 
rushes there, and the river 
turns, changing its course for 
the slightest obstacle. Like 
the bum who said when asked 
how he knew what direction to 
travel, "I always walk with the 
wind at my back." Knowing 
when to make a decision and 
when to discuss a decision will 
save your life from much 

of the will — the 
power to decide is a God-given 
capacity that we prostitute at 
the alter of spinelessness., 
Sometimes it is important to 
make a decision even if it is 
wrong — at least you are grab- 
bing your own destiny by the 
throat. Maybe there is some- 
thing in your life that needs 
decision. You are putting it 
off figuring that it will go away 
or time will solve it. More 
time never makes decisions 
concerning your spiritual di- 
rection in life easier. The 
longer and deeper the mind 
runs in the rut of spiritual 

indecision the harder it is to 
get out. The longer you 
postpone spiritual commit- 
ment the less likely it is that 
such a decision will be made. 
There is a saying, "Not to 
decide is to decide." That is 
especially true in the Christian 
life. For in the Great Contro- 
versy between good and evil, 
not to decide for good is to 
decide for evil. Spiritual 
drifters don't drift into a 
relationship with Christ any 
more than driftwood goes up

Symphony gives World's Fair concert 

"It's the best youth group 
we've heard perform all 
summer." exclaimed one 
stage hand after the Southern 
College Symphony Orches- 
tra's concert at the World's 
Fair. The group performed at 
8:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 
17 in the Court of Flags. The 
concert had originally been 
scheduled for the Tennessee 
amphitheater but was pre- 
empted by a program of 
international interest. 

Dr. Orlo Gilbert, conductor, 
received the invitation last 
year to perform at the fair 
after entertainment officials 
heard of the symphony's 
world tours and requested an 

audition tape. 
The concert repertoire was 
quite varied and included 
works by Berlioz, Copland, 
Strauss, and Grieg, whose 
Piano Concerto was performed 
by pianist Sondra Snider. A 
favorite of both the performers 
and audience was Hayman's 
"Pops Hoedown," a choreo- 
graphed collection of old-time 
fiddle tunes and square-dance 

The audience who braved the 
wind and 55-degree weather 
gave the symphony a standing 
ovation as the performance 
concluded with "Highlights 
from 'Annie.'"

The Italian buffet which has

Frankly, my dear, 
I don't give ... 

What is the biggest problem facing SC students today? Is it 
A) a change in the administration, B) rising tuition, C) heresy 
in the theology department, D) tightening of the rules, or b) 
none of the above. Mv vote eoes for E-none of the above 
and I have a sneaking suspicion what it is— apathy. Yes, I 
know those other things are causing problems, but take a 
good look at yourself and the student body in general. 

What did you do when you heard Knittel was taking a 
sabbatical? Most of you said, "too bad" and went on your 
merry way. How about rising tuition? Many grumbled but 
then paid the extra anyway. Heresy in the theology 
department? Well, you know how it is. Let the theologians 
and those radical fanatics fight about it. But who cares 
anyway. It's just my church at stake. And the tightening of 
the rules? Only one student out of the 1,500 on this campus 
bothered to constructively voice his opinion by writing a 
letter to the Accent. The rest of you just sat back and 
complained or cheered. And so it goes. 

Major issues of today, issues that affect each student of 
Southern College are taken lightly. The whole world could 
blow up and many would ask, "What happened?" 
"Oh," but you say, "What can / do? I'm just one voice 
out of so many." The answer is "a lot". Get involved in 
your college. Keep up on the issues and take an active role. 
Speak now. Tomorrow just might be too late.

Dear Editor: 

Dana Reed's argument that 
the Student Association is 
flawed in both of its founda- 
tions: that TV sets should be 
allowed in the dormitories, 
and that the SA does nothing 
effective about student com- 
plaints--in particular, student 
complaints about the prohibi- 
tion of TV sets. 
Point #1: He had no right to 
be "insulted" when "told" 
that TV sets could not be 
brought to the dormitory. A 
little research would have 
indicated that this is a well- 
known policy, traditional in all 
SDA colleges in our culture. 
Would I have the right to feel 
"insulted" if collared by the 
KGB for handing out anti- 
communist leaflets in Red 

He also failed to mention 
what to me is the most 
compelling argument against 
TV sets in dormitories: one's 
neighbors. The sheer concen- 
tration of people makes it 
difficult to maintain a habit- 
able (to say nothing of 
' 'studyable") environment 
without TV in rooms. With 
them, it would be impossible. 
A short stay in any hospital 
other than Wildwood, or a 
week in a motel should con- 
vince even the most reluctant 
of this fact. 

Point #2: The SA has indeed 
been effective, particularly in

Dear Editor, 

Tick me off! 

I came out of the library after 
one of my classes a couple 
weeks ago, when I noticed a 
crowd of people outside the 
Student Center. My mind 
raced with the thought that it 
might be a "Cookie Break." 
Oh! How a cookie would make 
my stomach content, especial- 
ly since I had skimped on 
breakfast that morning. 

But as I neared my goal, the 
doors of Hackman Hall burst 
open and the bone and micro 
freaks poured down the stairs 
toward the grub (no relation to 

Paula). 1 could see the blank 
look in their eyes as they 
shoved down the munchies 
handfuls at a time. 

My pace accelerated, along 
with those from the Nursing 
Building in hopes that there 
might be something left. But 
when I arrived at the table, 
only a few fragments re- 
mained. I gazed at the 
attendant with a bit of 
my eyes as J 
ren'r there any 
more? ' ' My stomach 

grumbled for added effect. 

He replied with a leer as he 
wiped crumbs from his own 

mouth, "Nope, but there's 
plenty of chocolate milk." 

I picked up a cup and 
wandered toward mv nest 
class. How could they be so 
inhumane as to build up my 
hopes and then smash them in 
my face? 

I charge that something be 
done. Committees should be 
formed, meetings held, any- 
thing to assure that this 
doesn't happen again. I 
desire that in the future 
everyone will be able to enjoy 
the benefits of a "Cookie 
Break." Sincerely, 1

Southern Bel plans tour 

October 21, 1982 /SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

This weekend Southern Bel 
Canto will go on its first 
singing tour of the yea' The 

he - 

, prog 

Sabbat!' tney win 
travel to the Spartanburg 
churcfi to sing for the church 
service. To conclude the tour, 
Southern Bel Canto will per- 
form a sacred and secular 
program at Fletcher on Satur- 
day night. 

Kathy Potts, a senior music 
major who has sung in the 
group since its conception in 
1980 says of the tour. "It gives 
us an opportunity to get to 
know the other girls in the 
group. From past experience I 
have noticed that we make 
better music when we get to 
know each other." 

Larry Otto, the director of 
Southern Bel Canto, started 
the group three years ago 
when it was decided that there 

was a real need for an all 
womens' choir. Otto noted 
that ^there were so many 
talented women that wanted 
to sing and no choir for them 
to sing in." Thus, the group 
Southern Bel Canto came into 
Otto, who started teaching at 
Southern College in 1979 says 
"From the beginning the 
group had a good sound. But I 
think that each year we 

Lori Hodges, a newcomer to 
the group this year, notes, 
"I've never been in an all-girl 
choir before. It's a lot of fun 
because we seem to harmon- 
ize well. I'm really excited 
about the tour." 

The group has sung for 
church several times this year 
and participated in the Pops 
Concert. The number that 
was performed at the Pops 
Concert, "What Price Free- 
dom, ' ' will be one of the many 
numbers that will be per- 

formed on the tour. 
This particular selection is a 
combined effort of many dif- 
ferent talents of the members 
of Southern Bel and others. A 
small orchestra gave the num- 
ber an added dimension for 
the Pops Concert. On tour the 
group will use a tape of that 
orchestra. The flag that hung 
behind the chorus during the 
performance was made by 
Claire Wiese who has been a 
member of Southern Bel since 
its beginning. 

All the girls spent long hours 
memorizing their music, 
speaking parts, and the 
choreography. Ron Mackey, 
the accompanist for the 
chorus, adds a special touch to 
the overall sound. 
Otto, who arranges some of 
the music for his group 
summed it up saying, "I think 
we have a good variety of 
music to present and I know it 
will be a good tour."

Movie attendance— should it be a moral issue? 


by Les Mathewson 

& r . 


At the risk of being mis- 
understood and labeled as a 
"legalist." Iwill answer YES. 
In fact, for the Christian, life is 
a "moral issue." Perhaps the 
better question should be 
"how does a Christian re- 
spond to the moral issue of 
movie attendance?" I shall 
spend the remainder of this 
short essay on answering the 
latter question, as the former 
has been hashed and rehashed 
so long on SDA campuses that 
any student who has paid his 
S6000 a year could recite a half 
dozen reasons pro and con. 
It would be easy to say (along 
with well-meaning parents, 
teachers, and deans) that the 
Christian should never, under 
any circumstances, enter a 
movie theater. In fact, one 

could quite easily find a fistful 
of quotes from some often too 
dusty red books that would 
rather quickly confirm in the 
minds of many that any world- 
ly amusements are downright 
sinful. And one could conform 
to the traditions of our 
"fathers" and avoid movie 
theaters like the bubonic 
plague. Lists of things that 
are inherently right and wrong 
are nice because they allow us 
to go to sleep at night knowing 
that we have refrained from 
going against the mandates of 
our "religion." Compliance 
to lists and traditions on the 
other hand, also removes our 
opportunity to develop a 
Christlike character. Such a 
character is developed not by 
unquestioning conformity, but 
rather by grappling with 
issues in light of the gospel 
and then, acting in a way that 
would best glorify God. I 
could provide a list of good 
reasons for not attending 
theaters, (e.g. it is a waste of 
money and time, "bad 
people" attend with you, etc.) 
then you could spend your 
time rationalizing them away 
one by one (e.g. matinees save 
money, "bad people" bother 
you less at theaters then at the 
local Golden Gallon, etc.), and 

we would both be back to step 
one. The issue then is not one 
of theaters being intrinsically 
evil, that could only be called 
superstition, but rather the 
issue is one of what is at stake 
for the Christian when he 
attends movies. 
It is a law of the mind that by 
beholding we become 
changed. If you have read at 
all in the field of psychology, 


world supports that. Is it 
wrong to go to movies? I 
answer yes if the theater you 
are going to will hold before 
your eyes images which could 
be considered at best non- 
Christlike. We are here to 
develop our characters (this 
doesn't mean earning our 
salvation, lest 1 be misunder- 
stood), to become Christian 
ladies and gentlemen. Any- 
thing that stops, hinders, or 
slow down that process is a 
sin. In Romans, Paul admon- 
ishes us to "not be conformed 
to this world (its principles, 
practices, or patterns), but be 
transformed by the renewal of 
your minds." (Romans 12:2) 
One might do well to ask what 
effect the movie will have on 
my attitudes and behavior. 
So somebody will say, "Come 
on now; I know what's right 

and wrong. I'm not going to 
change my lifestyle because of 
a movie! What's wrong with 
going to the movie just for 
fun?" Fun? Like the young 
lady who told me last week 
that after seeing Amityville II, 
she and her girlfriend 
returned to the car and 
prayed. Prayed?!? What on 
earth for? Forgiveness? 
Protection? Wisdom in the 
future? I think that if we were 
all really honest with our- 
selves, we would admit that 
much of what many of us see 
at the theater is not worthy of 
our undivided attention. 
Going to movies for FUN is 
really the enjoyment of seeing 
other people do things that we 
would never do. After Paul 
lists a number of sinful things 
in Romans 1:29-31, he says 
that some people not only sin 
but "approve those who prac- 
tice them" (i.e. the sins). Are 
we guiltless when we allow 
some film star to vicariously 
sin on our behalf? No, we 
would never have premarital 
sex, or steal a car, or "waste" 
somebody! But we would 
laugh, pant, drool, or shriek 
with excitement while some- 
body else does it on the silver 
screen. AH the while remind- 
ing ourselves how good we are 

because we don't do such 
things. As Martin Luther is 
reported to have said, "Sj n 
boldly Melanchthon, God only 
forgives the lustful sinner." 
In other words, if we want to 
enter into the forgiveness that 
God has already provided in 
Christ Jesus, we must be bold 
enough to recognize and admit 
the sinfulness of our actions. 
So long as we claim thai 
something is not "really thai 
bad" we are rejecting the 
forgiveness that God wishes to 
provide to us freely. (I John 
1:8 - 2:2. Isaiah 1:18-20) 
Is movie attendance a moral 
issue? Yes! Does that mean 
that God doesn't want us to 
have any fun? Of course 
not — be real! He wants us lo 
understand that true joy is noi 
found in isolating yourself in a 
fantasy (be it a movie at a 
theater, the TV sitcom, or a 
self-induced one), bui rather 
in experiencing realuy. We 
need to give of ourselves as 
Christ gave of Himself. Live 
to grow, even into the image 
of Christ. Next time you have 
the urge to attend the Sunday I 
matinee, give God a try; spend I 
a couple hours and a couple I 
dollars doing something for | 
somebody else, and see whai J 
real entertainmeni is! 


Let's start by restating the 
question slightly to read 
"Should theater attendance 
be forced into a moral issue?" 
The answer to the original 
question is an obvious yes 
since all decisions such as this 
do involve morality, but such 
decisions should be a matter 
of personal morality and not a 
matter of applied social 

standards. No one should 
force their morals on another 
individual in such a way as to 
say, "This is correct because I 
Relieve it is correct." 

This college has an editing 
board that screens all films 
shown on campus. This is 
applied morals. We are 
expected to accept these deci- 
sions as somehow justifiable 
because these people have 
considered them just; thus we 
see films such as "Bambi," 
"The Apple Dumpling 
Gang," ■•The World's Great- 
est Athlete," and other 
movies that were obviously 
produced for children. Be 
realistic. As Adventists, we 
are to be "apart" from the 
"world." True. However, we 
live in the real world, not as it 
should be but as it is. Thus we 
are faced with daily choices 
between right and wrong and 
the faculty cannot make the 
decisions that we must make 

in everyday life. This is up to 
us and us alone. Some people 
opt for theater attendance and 
others against it. This, like 
any other daily question of 
standards, is a personal deci- 
sion We are mature enough 
at the college level to make 
this decision for ourselves, 

Nistzche said that "The 
surest way to corrupt a youth 
is to instruct him to hold in 
higher esteem those who think 
alike than those who think 
differently." We are taught 
that those who think the same, 
or as we are told is "proper," 
are somehow above the rest 
Let us reemphasize— "Be 
real. We are individuals and 
as such should be allowed the 
freedom to choose as we see 
fit. At this college we nave 
seen graphic violence such as 
the crucifixion of Jesus and 

viewed by the censorship 
board as justifiable yet when 
we go to the deans pleading to 
see "The Deerhunter" (which 
happened to these writers last 
year) we are told "No, I don't 
think you ought to view that." 
We have seen this film in the 
theater and there was nothing 
in it that was as gruesome as a 
crucifixion, yet we are told 
that we are immoral for want- 
ing to see it. Are we college 
students or little children that 
need someone to tell us what 
we should consider "moral" 
and "immoral?" We all know 
the answer to thai question. .1

Once upon a time there was a 
student who was a real fox. 
Unfortunately even foxes die 
and he did and went to 
heaven. He went to St. Peter 
at the pearly gates to gain 
entrance to heaven and found 
when he arrived that there 
was a long line of people 
waiting in front of St. Peter's 
desk. St. Peter seemed to be 
(aking his time in talking to 
ihe people. This student was 
very impatient. "I can organ- 
ize this line better than this, 
why I could get these people 

aken ( 

■ of i 


thought to himself. He went 
to the head of the line to talk to 
St. Peter and was told by the 
helping angels to go back and 
wait in line. "This is ridicu- 
lous," he told the angel that 
was standing by him near the 
back of the line. "Why, when 
1 was on earth I never waited 
in lines; I was organized. You 
need to attend some manage- 

ment classes and get things 
organized up here." The 
angel smiled and said nothing. 
"I can't believe it!" he 
thought to himself, "I thought 
they would at least have 
known I was coming." 
Our real fox of a student 
began looking around at 
others in line with him. He 
hadn't really noticed them 
before. Most of them were 
obvious turkeys. They were 
not preppy like he was and 
some of them looked like the 
nerds he had seen on earth 
waiting in line for handouts. It 
was clear that some of them 
were obviously very uneducat- 
ed. It became more and more 
clear to him that there had 
been some mistake — he must 
be in the wrong line. He went 
up to the front of the line again 
to ask if this wasn't the wrong 
line. "Don't you have a line 
for those of us who have been 
Christians all of our lives? I 

mean; it is obvious that some 
of those in this line were 
latecomers to the cause and 
they don't have much in the 
way of abilities. No doubt you 
do need to spend a lot of time 
with some of these types to 
help them fill out forms. But 
certainly you have a faster 
registration line, where pro- 
cedures are shorter for people 
like myself." 
He was politely told that he 
was in the right line. He 
returned to his place in line 
but was getting more and 
more impatient at how things 
were being handled, and most 
important, how he was being 
handled. When he was in 
school he was treated like 
somebody. He had never 
been ignored like this. This 
attitude was getting to him. 
The girls on earth had treated 
him better than these angels 
were. He managed to wait 
rather impatiently for about 15 

more minutes until he noticed 
that St. Peter was not even 
calling people in the order that 
they were standing in line. He 
didn't do anything until an 
obviously very uninfluencia! 
fellow was called to the head 
of the line who had been 
standing behind him. That 
was too much ! He simply was 
not used to being so over- 
looked. Why most of the 
people going in front of him 
didn't have one tenth of the 
knowledge of heaven and 
theology that he had, and he 
was sure that they hadn't been 
as respected as he had. 
In his frustration he suddenly 
saw another" line that he 
hadn't seen before. "Fun- 
ny," he though to himself, 
"Why didn't I see that be- 
fore?" From where he was 
standing the line looked like it 
was moving more rapidly and 
the people in it looked much 
more distinguished. He 

quickly switched lines. One of 
the angels there recognized 
him immediately and said, 
' ' Why it certainly is our 
pleasure to have you here! 
You are too important to stand 
in line here — let me usher 
you to the head of the line." 
"Why this is more like it," he 
thought to himself. 

At the front of the line they 
gave him a lot of the attention 
that he was used to. He was 
moved quickly through regis- 
tration, so quickly in fact that 
he hardly knew what he was 
signing. A very attentive, 
flattering angel ushered him 
through a large door. He was 
so gratified with the attention 
he was given by the angels in 
this line that he didn't even 
notice the sign over the door 
he went through. It read, 

Religion department— on the line 

The Religion Department of 
Southern College held a 
symposium on October 9, 1982 
to address questions raised by 
concerned alumni and other 
interested parties. The meet- 
ing opened with a song festi- 
val. Then Dr. Wayne Thur- 
ber, director of Public Affairs 
at SC gave the ground 
rules for the meeting. Since 
questions were submitted in 
written form beforehand, no 
questions would be fielded 
from the audience. Thurber 
encouraged anyone with 
comments to write a letter to 
the Southern Columns. SC's 
alumni magazine. 

Elder Douglas Bennett, 
chairman of the Religion 
Department and moderator for 
the discussion, made an open- 
ing statement. He stated that 
"truth is more dynamic than 
static, every searching and 
seeking. A church must have 
fundamental beliefs, but on 
certain secondary issues, such 
as the 144,000, abortion and 
capital punishment, we should 
be charitable to those who 
hold different beliefs." 
Bennett also pointed out that 
the religion teachers wish to 
ground our students in the 
Vord of God and that they are 
"l harmony with the consen- 
s statement made at Glacier 
View regarding the sanctuary. 

the pre-Advent judgment, the 
investigative judgment, and 
salvation by faith alone. 
Bennett added that "this 
question period will give the 
teachers a chance to speak for 
themselves and they will be 
happy to respond." 
The first question was direc- 
ted to all of the members of 
the department — Ron Spring- 
ett, Norman Gulley, Gordon 
Hyde, Lorenzo. Grant, Jerry 
Gladson, Douglas Bennett, 
and Ed Zackrison. The ques- 
tion asked, "What was the 
Dallas statement?" Bennett 
gave some background infor- 
mation. It first appeared in 
the February 21, 1980 issue of 
the Adventist Review and was 
meant to clarify the funda- 
mental beliefs of the SDA 

Each religion teacher then 
affirmed their agreement with 
this statement of doctrine. 

The second question was, 
"What about a literal trans- 
lation to the heavenly sanctu- 
aries?" Jerry Gladson said 
that he was almost sure the 
question was directed to 
Hebrews in the New Testa- 
ment. He added that there is 
a grounding for a heavenly 
sanctuary in Leviticus 25:8, 
31. Bennett then asked Ron 
Springett to address the ques- 
tion from the New Testament 

view. Springett said that his 
position is found in the Bible 
Commentary, volume 10, page 
468. "This is the position I 
give in my classes," Springett 
stated. He then invited the 
questioner to read the position 
for himself. 
The third addressed to the 
issue of alleged heresy at SC. 
"There is talk of heresy being 
taught at Southern College. 
Even though I don't believe 
this to be true, what is given 
as the reason for the heresy 

Ed Zackrison addressed the 
question by stating that 
heresy is used in relationship 
to a creed. "Theie are four 
things meant by (the term) 
heretic," Zackrison said. 
"They are 1) out of harmony 
with the Scriptures, 2) at 
variance with my understand- 
ing of the Bible, 3)at variance 
with the church's understand- 
ing of the Bible, 4)at variance 
with my understanding of the 
church's fundamental beliefs. 

"Heresy is a very general 
term," Zackrison said, "We 
have already described our 
feelings about the fundamen- 
tal beliefs {of the Seventh-day 
Adventist church). In my 
classes we will be teaching in 
harmony with accepted official 

After touching briefly on 
other subjects, each panel 
member reaffirmed their 
support of the Seventh-day 
Adventist church.

Qoutkm Omic 

A certain matter has been 
brought to my attention 
recently. Just a few weeks 
ago I was reading everyone's 
favorite paper, the Accent, 
when what to my wondering 
eyes should appear but a small 
article about our president 

I was aghast. Simply flab- 
bergasted. Dr. Knittel, taking 
a sabbatical? Immediately my 
feminine, naturally organized 
mind began trying to think of 
suitable presidents to fill the 
vacated position after the best 
was gone. After all, things of 
importance such as this can't 
be left up to the Board of 
Trustees; they're still working 
on the name change. (Their 
newest, by the way, has been 
to start going through the 

dictionary alphebetically in 
hopes of finding some fresh 
ideas. Anyone for the Ameri- 
can Association of Anteaters?) 

It be- tme quite clear to me 
from the beginning that this 
was something I should 
handle. So, in my usual 
methodical manner I combed 
the campus, conducted sur- 
veys and took polls. I am 
proud to be able to give you, 
the faithful readers, the 
results of my painstaking 

E.O. Grundset. A definite 
possibility; the man shows 
tremendous leadership ability 
and superior imagination. I'm

not. One Frank has been quite 
enough, although the idea of 
turning Wright Hall into

Gerald Owens. Now here's 
an idea worth thinking about. 
The entire campus could be 
operated from a huge multi- 
purpose computer. I know 
from a very reliable source 
that Mr. Owens, if asked to fill 
the job, would be happy to 
implement systems like 
"Teller 24" whereby the stu- 
dent could simply slide in his

SA officers - on the line 

by Maureen Mayden 

The Student Association 
chapel was an "open-forum" 
Tuesday, October 24. It began 
with announcements and es- 
calated into a discussion of 
Christian values. 

Alvin Franklin, SA Presi- 
dent, started with a list of 
projects that the SA would be 
bringing before the Presi- 
dent's council this week. 
These included the late leave 
policy (equalizing the 
requirements for men and 
women), the change in room 
check time for seniors, various 
senior privileges, open com- 
munications between students 
and administration, and 
changing punishments to fit 
the "crime." 

Students we 
to a microphc 
aisle to ask questions or to 
voice their opinion about any 
relevant issues. J. T. Shim, 
Junior Computer major, was 
the first to take advantage of 
this opportunity and spoke 
about his concern for more 
cookie breaks. Other issues 
that were approached were 
possible pay phones on cam- 
pus in a central location for the 
convenience of ' 'together' ' 
phone calls, 
"rip-off" that 
statement, senior picture 

: allowed to go 

takes and choices, dorm lobby 
closing times, and the new 
phone system. 

Stephen Springer, Sopho- 
more Theology major, ques- 
tioned the necessity of various 
magazines for sale in the 
Campus Shop and the VM. 
This topic was pursued by 
several different viewpoints 
and continued until Carl Lang- 
ston, Freshman Theology ma- 
jor, presented the subject of 
television in the dorms. He 
felt that the TV was not 
necessary in a Christian school 
and that the SA should take 
that into consideration when 

This excited the students and 
there were conversations go- 
ing on all over the gym. 
agreeing and disagreeing, 
until Terry Shaw, SA Parlia- 
mentarian, got up and asked 
that the students show a little 
respect for the speakers. This 
quieted the crowd somewhat, 
but when the subject was 
pursued further, Tom Long 
stated that the issue was a 
personal decision. Franklin 
agreed, and asked that the 
topic be changed since it was 
not an SA matter. "If 
students can't decide for 
themselves what to watch on 
TV by the time they are in 

Nursing students dedicated to service 

college, then they shouldn't 
be here," stated Franklin. 
Mark Bolton, Senior History 
major, answered the request 
for different topics and asked 
about special events that are 
planned for the rest of this 
semester. Parti Stone, SA 
Social Activities, announced 
the SA banquet in November 
at the Lookout Mountain Fair- 
land Club. Franklin revealed 
plans requesting Amy Grant 

to perform at the college, and 
a Ski Day at Beech Mountain 
in North Carolina to be held 
sometime during second 
semester, if all goes well. 

Other topics were brought up 
concerning weekend leaves to 
the surrounding community 
and the Security Department 
opening academic buildings at 
night and on weekends for 

An impromptu quartet ended 

Patll Stone, Malinda 

the discussion with a musical 
selection, and Rhonda Hal- 
lock, Senior Office Adminis- 
tration major, moved that the, 
meeting be adjourned. The 
motion was seconded and all 

One student observed, 
"Alvin did a good job 
handling all the different 
issues and arguments." 

by Leanne Facundus 

Eighty-one first semester 
nursing students, the largest 
number in the history of SC, 
were dedicated before an 
assembly of families and 
friends in the Collegedale 
church on Saturday, October 
24, 1982. 

David Smith, of the SC 
English Department, was 
chosen by the class to be the 
guest speaker. He began his 
talk with the statement, "So 
you want to spend the rest of 
your life working with sick 
people. Now that calls for 
dedication." He went on to 
say, "Working with sick 
people isn't necessarily the 
ideal, at least the way most 
people look at it-including my 
wife. When I get sick, she 
gets mad at me." With 
entertaining statements such 
as this dispersed throughout, 
Mr. Smith went on to seriously 
discuss why the students were 
being dedicated. "I'd have 

you think this evening that 
you are being dedicated be- 
cause you are aspiring not just 
to be a nurse, but a Christian 
nurse. I hope you aren't 
becoming a nurse just because 
it is a good job. I hope you 
aspire to be a nurse because 
you want to heal souls as well 
as bodies, because you want to 
let your Christianity shine 
through your vocation. . . Your 
task as Christian nurses is to 
share the hope that the God in 
heaven forgives and loves and 
never stops. You can always 
share hope. Tonight we 
dedicate you to that." 

During the program a few 
musical selections were per- 
formed by members of the 
class, and a representative 
from Gideon International 
presented the class with small 
white New Testaments. Mrs. 
Elvie Swinson then called roll 
and each student rose to light 
his candle. Encircling the 

darkened church with their lit 
candles, the class recited the 
Nightingale Pledge to pass 
their lives in purity and to 
practice the profession faith- 
fully. The program closed 
with the nurses singing their 
class song, "One Little Can- 

Mrs. Jean Springett, a 
Nursing I instructor, explains 
that "We are a religious 
school, and we believe there is 
a special significance in the 
work our students are doing, 
so we have a dedication 
instead of a capping cere- 
mony." Mrs. Colleen Barrow 
suggested that the capping 
ceremony was done away with 
because of the increasing 
number of male nursing stu- 
dents. However, this semes- 
ter's class has only eight men, 
which is five or six less than 
most previous classes. 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/October 28, 1982 



Religious freedom? 

; valued by everyone. We all 
l style and 

Individuality is a trait that i: 
want to be known for being "i 

don't like to be conformistic. We object when wc .« 
regimented and deprived of our individuality by the 
substitution of computer numbers for our names; we 
grumble mutinously about rules and regulations that cramp 
our style." In general, we resent any infringement on our 
own personal freedom. Freedom to be ourselves is one of the 
things most dear to us, and we will do anything to protect It. 

But we must remember that there are other individuals 
besides us--and those people are just as entitled to their 
individual freedom as we are. In order to preserve peace, 
there must be give and take. We must be accepting of 
others' personal opinions— just as we expect others to be 
accepting of ours. 

It is relatively easy for us to accept other people's political 
views, taste in fashion, style in self-expression, etc. But 
there is one area about which we tend to be very 
closed-minded. In the area of Christianity, we allow almost 
no room for individuality. The majority of us have 
comfortable middle-of-the-road views, and frankly, we don't 
like it when people deviate from our set norm-especially 
when they move toward the right side of the road and dare to 
express an opinion more conservative than our own. We 
label these people "fanatics;" we poke fun at their "overly 
conservative" views; we scorn them for being themselves. 

Now I'm not saying that we should necessarily agree with 
every conservative idea that comes along, nor that every such 
opinion merits the instigation of a moral reformation. But 
Christianity, like every other aspect of life, is an individual 
matter and Christian society should allow for varying 
opinions. And not only should these opinions be allowed, 
they should be respected as well. 

Individuality is so important. We allow it in every other 
aspect of life. Why can't we be consistent and allow it in 
Christianity too?

Dear Editor: 

Have we been brainwashed? 
Mistaken? Or did we just learn 
from different teachers? 

Tell us, is there anything 
wrong with a "C"? For years, 
students have heard, " A 'C is 
an average grade." "Don't 

semester grades. If they're 
not up to the usual high 
school level, it will get better 
as you adjust." 
So tell us, why do the 
freshmen have to get a 3.00 
GPA to get out of study hall? 
What are you trying to say to 

worry, there is nothing wrong those kids who get "C's" and 

.iih getting 
class." And, "You're h

We've also heard nev<

is NOTHING wrong with that! 

Or have we been misled? If 
you'll notice, any mixture of 
"B's" and "C's" will get you 

nowhere near a 3.00 GPA. 


Will we get a response oi:i|

To the Editors: 
Your editorial ' 'A House 
Divided" (Oct. 14), while 
apparently sincere, was highly 

One wonders how much more 
evidence is needed to convince 
some people that "minor 
doctrinal discrepancies" are 
not the issue in the current 
discussions. Small differences 

I of opinion have always existed 
among Christians, but these 
lot tend to divide. Mini- 
...i don't lose their creden- 
ials and form independent 

| congregations over the length 
men's dresses. By 
;t, a long, protracted 

I debate causing division and 

I estrangement is good evi- 
dence that a major issue is 
at stake. Moreover, when 
Ellen White states concerning 
such issues as the judgment- 
hour message and the Spirit of 
Prophecy that "the destiny of 

souls hangs upon the ,,,, 

in which they are received" 
<EW 259), that /'those 
Seventh-day Adventists who 
take their stand under Satan's 
banner will first give up their 
faith" in the Testimonies 
(3SM 84), shouldn't this give 
pause to those who disdain 

Perhaps the editor of Christ- 
ianity Today said it best in an 
editorial dated Feb. 16, 1979: 
' 'To use love as an umbrella to 
cover doctrinal differences 
does not solve the basic prob- 
lem. Doctrine does divide. It 
always has. It always will. It 
must do so, as the Bible does, 
in order to separate truth from 
error. ...If it is not grounded in 
sound doctrine, love is not 
true love even though called 
by that name." 

While concern over harsh- 
ness and a lack of love is in 
order, your editorial seems 
more fearful of conflict than of 
error. When I read the Bible, 
I find this is reversed.

THE DOW JONES industrial 
average fell 36.33 points 
Monday in the biggest single- 
day drop since the beginning 
of the Great Depression. The 
drop, brought on by the 
Federal Reserve Board's deci- 
sion to maintain the current 
9.5 percent prime interest 
rate, came just two trading 
days after reaching a ten-year 
high. While the October 28, 
1929 decline was only two 
points higher, it was three 
times greater on a percentage 
basis because of the much 
lower level it fell from. 

Ariel Sharon took partial re- 
sponsibility for the September 
22 massacre of Palestinian 
civilians by Christian militia- 

sponding to questions asked 
by a commission assigned to 
investigate the massacre, ad- 
mitted that he had given 
permission for the Christians 
to enter the Palestinian camps 
on a "search and destroy" 
mission seeking PLO gueril- 
las. The Defense Minister 

emphasized that not in his 
"blackest dreams" did he 
think the Palestinians would 
be massacred. 

Walesa's wife, Danuta, was

at the Southeastern Polish 
resort where he has been 
interned since last December, 
claimed that the police tried to

| Dear Editor, 
Tick ME off! 

After reading the most recent 
Accent and noticing a certain 
"Letter to the Editor," I feel a 
I little edgy. I am speaking 
I specifically of the article by 
I Mi<= s Dickerhoff pertaining to 
annual "Cookie Breaks." 
- .. nurts me deeply to think 
■that she didn't get to indulge 
En the "munchies," I mean, 
■after I've done all this work in 
^planning and setting up the 
f 'Cookie Break"— I just can't 
Relieve everyone didn't 
[receive a munchkinl 
J Bev, I do know how you feel! 
Bt's too bad that some people 
pre so inconsiderate of others' 
punger pains. The "Cookie 
freak" is not intended as a 
peal, but merely an in-be- 
:lass snack. Of course 

we could treat mature college 
students as kindergarten 
children and begin dishing out 
to them a small equal amount. 
(Hey, that doesn't sound too 
bad; we could make everyone 
get in a line, hand them 
a napkin, drink, and munch- 
kins, then send them on their 
merry way!) 

In closing I just want to say 
that committees are formed, 
meetings are held and every- 
thing is being done to see that 
we accommodate as many 
people as possible. Thank you 
for your concern! 

Most sincerely, 
Cary Gregory

P.S. The "Cookie Breaks" are 
now being called ' 'Take-a- 
Break," merely because 
cookies aren't in anymore.

Robin Beard is running for 
the US Senate because of his 
children. "My philosophy of 
belief," says the 43-year old 
Republican candidate, "is that 
we should not mortgage the 
future of our children and 
grandchildren for the political 
expediency of today." Beard 
is opposing Senator Jim Sas- 
ser in the November 2 election 
in what is shaping up to be a 
tight race. 

In a phone interview with the 
Accent. Beard's press secre- 
tary, Bill Childress outlined 
Beard's positions, read a 
statement from the candidate. 

and gave a brief background 
of Robin Beard. 

Beard was born in Knoxville 
and attended Vanderbilt uni- 
versity. He served as State 
Personnel Commissioner in 
Governor Winfield Dunn's 
administration. Beard was 
first elected to the US House 
of Representatives in 1972 and 
has served five terms. In the 
ten years in the House he has 
"voted consistently against 
government regulation and 
against government intrusion 
into our daily lives." 

Beard is the ranking minority 
member of the House Armed 

Services Committee and is on 
the House Select Committee 
for Narcotics Abuse. He was 
the House observer in the 
SALT talks and the United 
Nations' Disarmament talks. 
He is considered by many to 
be an authority on NATO 

Beard also supports many 
conservative issues. In 1982, 
the Christian Voice, a national 
Christian lobby representing 
300,000 people, presented 
Beard with the Christian 
Statesmen Award. The award 
goes to members of Congress 
who score 80 percent or above 

on the Christian Voice voting 
index. Beard voted 'correctly' 
91 percent of the time on such 
issues as school prayer, abor- 
tions, IRS regulations affect- 
ing Christian schools, forced 
busing, gay rights, a balanced 
budget and other issues. 

Beard's statement to the 
Accent said that he has "voted 
for, on a consistent basis, 
the restoration of values which 
have made our country strong. 

I support voluntary prayer in 
schools, tax credits for private 
education and the right of 
people to choose the second- 
ary or higher educational insti- 

tution they wish to attend i

Fasior Gordon Bietz 

It is not often that one gets to 
lalk with a famous theologian 
and when granted a rare 
opportunity to gain some in- 
sight into the world of theol- 
ogy 1 couldn't pass up the 
chance. Dr. Nagstrovokskey, 
world renowned authority on 
issues of theology had only 
a short time between flights in 
Atlanta and so 1 had to make 
my questions count. The 
following is a transcript: 

Bietz: Mr. Nagstrovokskey, 
that is how you pronounce 
your name isn't it? 
Nagstrovokskey: No! 
Bietz: How is it pronounced? 
Nagstrovokskey: Nagstrovok- 

Bietz: 1 see. Could 1 call you 
"Nag" for short? 
Nagstrovokskey: Fine. 

Bietz: Good. Well, Nag, as 
you survey the religious scene 
today what issues do you feel 
are those that should most 
concern the Christian church? 

Nag: It seems tome that the 
ecumenists are confusing the 
epistemological implications 
of eschatology with its exi- 
stential parameters. 
Bietz: ?.?.?.?.?.?.?. 
Nag: Ah, Mr. Bietz? 
Bietz: Yes. 
Nag: Are you with me? 
Bietz: It depends 

you ; 

. No- 

Nag: I had just said that it 
seems to me that the ecumen- 
ists are confusing the episte- 
mological implications of 
eschatology with its existential 

Bietz: I was afraid that that 
was where you were. Ah . . . 
perhaps you could go into a bit 
more detail. 

Nag: Well it is palpably 

apparent to me that these 
whilom ecumenists who seek 
to disaffirm the purality of the 
body, see the eschaton as the 
solution rather then the 


» afraid you c 


go into more detail. Moving 
right along. . .How is your 

Nag: You mean the family of 
the church? 

Bietz: Why yes, of course. 
Nag: Well the family of the 
church has gravitated into the 
fixed mode of being unable or 
incapable of differentiating 
between a catastrophic escha- 
ton and immanence. You can 
readily see what difficulty that 
leaves them in. 
Bietz: I certainly can see the 
difficulty it leaves me in. 
Nag: You find yourself in 
this difficult situation? 
Bietz: Well it is not exactly 
the same difficulty. 
Nag: Ah, I see. 
Bietz: Maybe we should talk 
about your family. 
Nag: Why would you want to 
do that? 

Bietz: Well I like to get a 
little background on the 
people I interview. It helps 

more human perspective. 

(Translation: I have to talk 

about something with this guy 

that I can understand.) 

Nag: What do you wish to 

know about my family? 

Bietz: You married? 

Nag: Yes. 

Bietz: Children? 

Nag: No. 

Bietz: How does your wife 

relate to the work of a world 

famous theologian? 

Nag: She doesn't. 

Bietz: You mean you don't 

talk about your work with her? 

Nag: She never understands 

Bietz: (under my breath) 

Neither do I. 

Bietz: What is your opinion 

about arachibutyrophobia? 

Nag: About what? 

Bietz: Arachibutyrophobia. 

Nag: I have no idea what that 

Bietz: Really? Arachibutyro- 
phobia is the fear of peanut 
butter sticking to your mouth. 
Nag: What does that have to 
do with theology? 

Bietz: I'm not sure, but it is a 
word I learned last week and 
thought you could put it in 
your repertoire. 

So much for our fictitious 
interview with the famous Dr. 
Nagstrovokskey. Though this 
interview is a bit far fetched I 
sometimes wonder if we don't 
miss the simple message of 
the gospel in rather artfully 
de-gook. We are concerned 
about so many things and 
never really rejoice in the 
message of the Gospel. Like 
Martha, we busy ouselves 
with many things theologically 
and Jesus says to us, "you are 
worried and upset about many 
things, but only one thing is 
needed." (Luke 10:41-42) 

One thing is needed — Jesus. 
Study about, pray to, and love 
Him as best you can and you 
will loose your arachibutryo- 
phobia as well as any other 
fears that haunt you. 

QAioods ( xjdk^ 

Raccoons are positively 
charming animals to observe, 
being clever, industrious, 
clean and fun-loving. Around 
a camp, however, they are 
also quite mischievous — too 
noisy and far too prone to 
larceny to endear themselves 
to everyone. For example, an 
unguarded or carelessly laid 
pack or grocery box is almost 
certain to be investigated by 
one or more of these cheeky 
bandits. Buckets, pans and 
cans are most likely to be 
overturned in the middle of 
the night, which is hardly 
conducive to a good night's 

But for all his antics, the 
raccoon enjoys a place of 
honor among the nation's 
outdoorsmen, who admire him 
for his general intelligence, 
his adaptability to a changing 
environment, his sporting 

qualities and simply because 
of his familiarity to young and 
old alike. He is an integral 
part of the American outdoor 
scene, a symbol of the vanish- 
ing wilderness. 

Raccoons vary in color and 
size depending on habitat. 
The two most commonly rec- 
ognized features are its black 
mask across the eyes and its 
ringed tail. The reccoon is up 
to 36 inches long, stands 9 to 
12 inches high at the shoulder, 
and has a 10-inch tail. The 
average adult has a chunky 
body and usually weighs 
between 15 and 18 pounds, 
while unusually large males 
may exceed 25 pounds. 

Raccoons are plantigrade and 
walk on the entire foot. The 
soles of their feet are jet 

ve no farther 
necessary in order to 

meet the demands of their 
appetites. During the breed- 


,.iay wander as far l_ 
miles. Females seldom travel 
more than a half mile from 
their den sites. 

The breeding season takes 
place during January, Febru- 
ary or March, depending on 
the section of the country. 
Most raccoons are bred in 
February. The males are poly- 
gamous, seeking several 
mates, while the females 
usually accept only the 
advances of a single, 
preferred male. Most females 
will breed when they are nine 
to ten months old. Males 
breed usually as yearlings, or, 
perhaps more so as they 
approach their second year. 

Raccoons have a gestation 
period of 63-64 days. The 
young weigh about two and a 

half ounces and, although 
fully furred, their eyes are 
sealed shut. A litter contains 
from two to seven young, four 
being the most i 

The normal life span of a 
raccoon is between seven and 
ten years. Besides man, the 
raccoon's worst enemy is the 
dog. Fights between the two 
are ferocious and bloody. A 
dog that follows a raccoon into 
the water is committing sui- 
cide. The raccoon will climb 
on top of the dog's head and 
grasping the head lightly i 

hold it beneath th 
water, while the raccoon wil 
be able to breathe from it 
elevated perch. 

The raccoon has shared his 
wilderness with the red man; 
he was undoubtedly watching 
when the first white man's 
campfire was lit on these 
shores; he helped feed and 
clothe the early settlers and 
explorers; he has moved over 
to make room for sprawling 
cities; he is surviving a 
nightly sacrifice of his kind on 
the endless concrete altars 
built across the land, even 
through his beloved swamps 
and marshes; and from the 
salt water marshes of Merritt 
Island, Fla., he watches every 
rocket being launched at Cape i 
Kennedy, having somehow 
held on to a ringside seat to 
the space age.

If you're feeling the same 
way I am, the answer must be 
'bored.' Vacation's still a 
ways off, and mid-terms are 
over. So what's left? Being a 
caring individual, concerned 
over the health and welfare of 
my fellow SCSDA-ites, maybe 
the following suggestions will 
help brighten your otherwise 
bleak existences. 

Call up the deans and ask 
them if they're aware that 
there's a roach problem. 

Take your Joker to the post 
office. See how many faces 
you can match up with the 

"wanted" pictures. 

Stand in the Sabbath lunch 
line. Count how many people 
cut in front of you. See if it 
adds up the nation's GNP. 

Sing "If you're happy and 
you know it stomp your feet" 
with 40 other guys on the third 
floor Friday night. Look very 
innocent when the second and 
first floors pay a visit. 

Send yourself mail. 

Walk up to someone on Nerd 
Day and say "Wow! What a 
wild get-up!" Make sure they 
don't look any different than 
other days. 

Call up the CK and order two 
large pizzas. Go to sleep. 

Count how many times 
"E.O. Grundset" appears in 
every "Chatter." Make a 
five-volume collection. 

Hold a stereo contest. See 
whose speakers are the loud- 
est. Make sure it is study hall. 

Call 4014 or 4677. Try to hold 
a conversation. 

Conduct a poll on your hall to 
see who is the favorite dean. 
Call the dean at 3 a.m. with 
the good news. 

Start sending out Valentines. 

Hang around the CK. Order 

nothing. Yell "Here!" for 
every number called out. 

Visit a married couple. Tell 
them you're there for a 
Marriage and the Family 
project. Inspect their fridge 
and TV for a few hours. 
Forget project. 

Announce a contest to see 
which theology major's brief 
case is the largest. 

Get the prettiest girl in 
school to play racquetball with 
you. Try to knock out the 
lights in the court. 

Get married. It's awakened 
lots of people. 

Call the Mercantile. Ask if 
they have Prince Albert in a 
can. If they say "Yes," you'd 
better turn on your tape 

Go trick-or-treating in 
Collegedale. Insist on choco- 
late, not carob. 

Be daring. Go to a movie. 
Try not to be surprised at all 
the other daring people from 

Of course, this list is only a 
supplement to the bigger one 
that most of you have. But as 
a last resort to help boredom, 
try studying. - '•■ -

BECA increases alumni donations 

Southern College received 
$49,500 from BECA, the Busi- 
ness Executive's Challenge to 
Alumni. The money was 
presented to Dr. Frank Knittel 
at the Sixth Annual Dinner for 
Philanthrophy in Washington, 
D. C. on October 28. The 
award is part of a two million 
dollar fund designed to pro- 
mote alumni giving to their 
alma mater. 

The BECA program has been 
very successful at Southern 
College. During the 1979-80 
school year, only six percent of 
SC's alumni contributed funds 
to the college. The BECA 
program began the following 
year. Participation jumped to 
fifteen percent of alumni and 
contributions increased to 

The goal for this school year 
is $100,000 according to Dr. 
Wayne Thurber, director of 
Public Relations. "BECA gets 
us moving," Dr. Thurber 
says. "We will meet the 
challenge but it's not going to 
be easy. 

The BECA program was 
started in 1979 by a group of 
Adventist business and pro- 
fessional people who wanted 
to see alumni support increase 
from the 6.5 percent level to 
the least national average of 
24 percent. 

BECA is based on the incen- 
tive system. Each college is 
challenged to reach donor and 
dollar goals greater than the 
previous year. The incentive 
to reach these goals is money 
from the BECA fund, awarded 
in two ways. BECA will match 
alumni money above the pre- 
vious year, dollar-for-dollar, 
up to a certain limit. It also 
will give each college money 
for new donors to the college's 
annual fund, up to a pre- 
determined number. 

The BECA program will be 
phased out in 1985. A new 
program, The Class Perform- 
ance Program, began in 1982 
and consists of class agents 
corresponding with their 
peers,' asking them to support 
their alma mater. According 

to Dr. Thurber, the graduating 
classes of SC will be compet- 
ing in this inducement pro- 
gram. Two classes will be 
honored for the highest per- 
centage of participation and 
the highest per capita giving. 

Tiie bottom line for BECA 
and The Class Performance 
Program is to raise money for 
scholarships. According to 
Dr. Thurber, SC has over 
$100,000 in an endowment 
fund and is working to raise 

more. "We use the money we 
receive in the area that needs 
it most," Thurber says. 
"Right now, we need student 

Hyde to head religion department 

The SC Religion Department 
will undergo a change in its 
chairmanship this coming 
January. Elder Gordon Hyde, 
former Field Secretary of the 
Genera] Conference and Di- 

r ofjhe Biblical Research 
Institute, will succeed Elder 
Douglas Bennett, the depart- 

' j current chairman. 

According to Elder A.C. 
McClure, Southern Union 
President and chairman of the 
SC board, Elder Hyde, who 
taught at SC from 1956-1969 
and was the head of the 
Religion and Communications 

greatly loved. He is a scholar 
, teacher. Because 

of his background and move 
back to Georgia to work on the 
adult Sabbath School lesson 
quarterly, his proximity and 
availability was attractive to 
the college." Elder McClure 
went on to explain that the 
addition of Elder Hyde was 
simply an intention to 
strengthen the department. 
"I want to make clear that as 
far as Elder Bennett goes, I 
and the board have the utmost 
confidence in him and have 
had no questions about him." 
Elder Bennett, who has been 
the chairman for the past ten 
years, explained that he "had 
offered a resignation during 
the 1981-1982 school year and 
had been trying to get out of 
the chairmanship. So, I am not 
unhappy about it, and I will 
still be teaching, which is what 
I enjoy most. 
Elder Hyde will be returning 
to a position that is not 
unfamiliar to him. It is one 
■ that he held during part of the 
13 years that he taught at SC. 
Born in England and the 
youngest of 13 children to 
parents who were among the 
early Advent ists 

Britain, Elder Hyde explains 
himself as having "been char- 
acterized as a conservative of 
the conservatives." Express- 
ing that he doesn't really 
worry about it much, he went 
'I feel that we have 



have parents that are looking 
to us with great expectations. 
We may not be able to resolve 
problems that have accumu- 
lated over a period of years in 
a student's life, but we'd 
certainly like to do our best." 
Expecting to have an open 
door to his office at all times, 
Elder Hyde stated, "I want to 
do my best to find a unified 
position of what I believe to be 
the sound and traditional 
Adventist positions, and I 
have a feeling, though I 
haven't asked them individ- 
ually, that that is the goal of 
the rest of the people in this 
When asked to comment on 
the current criticism that the 
department has been receiv- 
ing Elder Hyde said, "I'm not 
sympathetic with some of the 
methods that have been used 
to attack the department, al- 

though I realize that the 
teacher is very much 'king in 
his castle'.. .and it's not easy 
to learn what is going on in a 
classroom in any objective way 
because no two students hear- 
ing the same thing hear it 
exactly the same way. ..We 
have some very able teachers 
in our department, some of 
the best qualified in the 
country. From that standpoint 
we don't have to take a 
backseat to anyone. Our 
greatest need is to continue 
the good year that we are 
Elder Hyde graduated from 
Newbold College with a 
ministerial diploma and then 
from Andrews University in 
1942 with a BA in Theology. 
Ordained in 1946, he was a 
pastor-evangelist in the Wis- 
consin Conference for five 
years before returning to his

In the four and one half years I've lived in Collegedale I

helmet driving down Camp Road. He d.dn t bother to ticket 
the offender but wrote out the ticket, asked Dean Evans who 
owned a moped with Texas tags, and told the dean to give the 
ticket to the moped's owner, Greg Wheeler. 
Three days later, Wheeler found the ticket on his dresser. 
The time for the alleged offense was 4:00 p.m when, 
according to witnesses, Wheeler was playing football. 
On October 26, Wheeler went down to the police 
department to discuss the citation and the court appearance 
the next day. He never signed the ticket or agreed to come to 
court the next day. 

At 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 27, Wheeler was 
sleeping in his room when the police awakened him and 
placed him under arrest for failure to appear in court. The 
police failed to read Wheeler his rights, which is required by 
the Miranda ruling of the United States Supreme Court. 
They then took him to the squad car and handcuffed him. 
Wheeler was not drunk, nor was he high on drugs. Although 
Wheeler did not feel the arrest was justified, he did not put 
up a fight. Justice has not been served when a student is 
treated like a common criminal for allegedly not wearing a 
helmet on a moped. 
Next the police took Wheeler to the police station and held 
him there for two hours until a bail bondsman could come 
from Chattanooga and arrange Wheeler's release. 
This incident really makes one wonder about the level of 
competence of the Collegedale police. When an officer has 
nothing better to do than ticket moped riders then not even 
bother to give the ticket to him, he had better check out his 
priorities. Unless some drastic policy and/or personnel 
changes are made in Collegedale Police Department, the 
level of confidence in their work will continue to plunge.

Dear Editor, 
In response to the letter 
concerning 3.00 GPA, I feel 
compelled to reply. To fairly 
answer the question of why a 
3.00 is required, the purpose 
of the study hall program must 
be considered, along with a 
little history of SC. 
Two years ago, the adminis- 
tration of SC took a close look 
at the performance of the 
freshman class in terms of 
academic success. With an 
alarmingly high ratio of stu- 
dents below a 2.00 GPA, along 
with an equally high ratio of 
dropouts at the semester, they 
felt it necessary to implement 
some program which would 
hopefully encourage the in- 
, coming freshmen to greater 
heights of academic achieve- 
ment and increase the possi- 
bility of these students staying 
in school. Let me add this was 
not a one-year problem but 
rather had been growing in 
the past years. With this aim, 
the freshman support program 
was begun "to provide, to the 
greatest extent feasible, the 
kind of academic, personal, 
financial and social support 
which will maximize the pro- 

bability of a student 
fully completing his/her fresh- 
man year of college." 

The intent was to run a 
program for one semester. 
But if the student could attain 
a 2.25 GPA, he would be 
allowed off. Well, the first 
half of the semester was 
considered a success in terms 
of attendance and attitude of 
the freshmen, but the second 
half hardly short of chaos. The 
morale of many left or 
dropped due to the "dummy" 
image they obtained, for after 
all, "you must be an idiot if 
you can't get a 2.25!" So at 
the end of the year the 
program was reevaluated. It 
was felt by the administration 
that the required grade level 
should be raised sufficiently 
so that rather than being an 
"indicator of stupidity" for 
those left on (with the requi- 
site GPA of under 2.25), it 
would instead be a reward for 
those who excelled. Thus 3.00 
was arrived at by the adminis- 
tration. This fit better into the 
original plan which was to run 
the program forfirst^semester 
of each year. If the program 

was intended to run for half a 

then it would be 
"punishment" for those who 
didn'i receive the required 
grade level to get off, but in 
light of the fact that ii is 
intended for one semester, the 
attainment of 3.00 GPA is 
rewarded by "release" from 
study hall. The magic number 
of 3.00 was not arrived at I 
through use of any statistical ! 
formulas or theory, but rather 
through an evaluation of last 
year's program by the admin- 
istration, which revealed the 
above-mentioned flaw. As \ 
was done after last year, this 
year's program will be eval- 
uated and possibly the re- ! 
quired grade level will be 

In closing, despite the flaws 
in the program last year, 
overall it was considered a 
success. It is interesting to 
note, in support of that state- 
ment, that last year the school 
recorded the lowest freshmeo 
dropout rate at the semester 
for the past ten years. The 
average GPA of freshmen was 

also U P- c- „„«=1v l

Dear Editor, 
1 am perturbed, to say the 
least, at the recent actions of 
the Collegedale Police De- 
partment. It seems that our 
men in blue have decided to 
go to extreme measures to 
catch desperate criminals by 
using our deans to hand out 
tickets. They also have come 
into Talge Hall on a recent 
occasion to wake up and arrest 
my roommate for skipping his 
court date. During the arrest, 
Officer Shanko failed to read 
Mr. Wheeler his rights prior 
to handcuffing; they failed to 
read him his rights at any 

Mr. Wheeler decided not to 
go to court because he was 
never caught by local author- 
ities. He was playing football 
during the time the ticket 
states (with three witnesses to 
prove it). He never signed the 
part of the ticket that says, "I 
promise to appear in said 
court or bureau at' said time 
and place." 

The ticket itself is for riding a 
moped without a helmet. 

Mr. Wheeler's next court 
date is November 10 at 9:00 
A.M. Let's all show our 
support for Greg and show up 
at the courthouse. Let's let 
the Collegedale police force 

know that we won't stand '« 
this kind of inexcusable 
cedure. ... '

merit Service" nearly every 
day io check the board for 
posted jobs and to inquire 
about certain jobs. 
After several disappoint- 
ments (hours conflicting w'.h 
class schedule jobs already 
filled, etc.) I thought that I had 
finally been fortunate enough 
to discover a newly posted job 
which did not conflict with my 
class schedule, when I applied 
for a job as a cafeteria server 
on Monday, Tuesday, and 
Thursday mornings. 

I was elated. I rushed to the 
cafeteria and pushed my way 
through the line of students 
waiting for the cafeteria to 
begin serving and requested 
to see the person I had been 
directed to meet with. Yes, 
the job was still open. 
But as I began to fill out the 
application, I was told to be 
sure and mark that I was 
willing to work on Sabbaths. I 
laid my pencil down. I 
replied that I had been 
informed that the job was only 
for Monday, Tuesday, and 
Thursday mornings. I was 
told that it was required that 
everyone must work one Sab- 
bath a month. I kindly 
returned the application and 
said ' 'Thank you' ' but I 
couldn't take the job. 
Later as I reflected on this 

incident, I recalled when, 
shortly after my baptism three 
years ago, I had been fired 
from a job when I had refused 
to work on the Sabbath. That 
job had always been a Monday 
through Friday job and week- 
end work was certainly a 
rarity, but my religious convic- 
tions carried no weight with 
my employer. I know that 
there is a special department 
within our church (Religious 
Liberty Department) which 
aids those who lose their jobs 
because of Sabbath work prob- 
lems. Despite this and the 
fact that I had a family to 
support, I decided not to cry 
"Discrimination!" but rather 
to trust the Lord to supply our 
needs, which He has. 
I believe this recent situation 
is different, however. My 
previous employer did not 
acknowledge or even recog- 
the claims of the Sabbath. 


t the t 

t SC. 

My purpose in writing this 
letter is again, not to cry 
"Discrimination!" or to cause 
unrest among the cafeteria 
employees. Rather it is to 
bring to light a much-abused, 
over-rationalized argument 
that being employed by the 
denomination excuses Sab- 
bath work activities because a 
person is "doing the Lord's 

There is no doubt that many 
who are employed in this 
manner sincerely believe this 
to be true. However, one has 
only to research and read the 
many references found in the 
Index to the Writings jinder 
the heading SABBATH, Sub- 
heading #22, Use of, and find 
that this is not the case. 
While Sister White did say 
that life's necessities must be 
attended to on the Sabbath 
and that sanitarium patients, 
doctors, and nurses must be 
fed, she called for the closing 
of SDA restaurants (which 
were operated primarily for 
missionary purposes) and 
spoke against doing any un- 
necessary work on the Sab- 

As Seventh-day Adventists, 
we recognize that the medical 
missionary work is one which 
God approves on the Sabbath. 
Yet even in this work she 
warned, "Ordinary treatment, 
and operations that can wait, 
should be deferred till the next 
day." (MM 214) Feeding SC 
students and faculty could 
hardly be called an act of 
mercy by any stretch of the 
It would be wrong of me to 
write this letter without sug- 
gesting a few possible solu- 
tions to this problem. After 
all, students should not be 

expected to fast every Sab- 
bath, although occasional fast- 
ing would provide better 
health for many. 

First, students should make 
necessary arrangements to 
prepare for the Sabbath by 
having food on hand for the 
Sabbath. This is made easier 
by the fact that refrigerators 
are allowed in the dorms and 
there are cooking facilities 

Second, area church mem- 
bers should provide an occa- 
sional meal for a student or 
group of students. Most 
people in Collegedale are de- 
pendent on the college in 
some respect and enjoy its 
benefits. What more appro- 
priate way of expressing a 
grateful heart for God's many 
blessings than to invite a 
student (many of whom would 
go home every weekend if 
they could because of home- 
sickness) to your home for a 
Sabbath afternoon dinner. 

A third alternate (certainly 
not ideal, but perhaps better 
than the present situation) 
would be to follow the practice 
of Southwestern Adventist 
College at Keene, Texas. 
Sabbath breakfast consists of 
cereal or pastries which re- 
quires a bare minimum of 
workers. Likewise, Sabbath 
dinner and supper consists of 

cold cut sandwiches, chips, 
fruit, a drink, and other good- 
ies prepared on Friday, placed 
in paper bags, and refrigera- 
ted. These meals, while 
providing less fare than a hot 
meal, would undoubtedly be 
appreciated as an alternative 

I'm sure that most SC stu- 
dents do not enjoy seeing 
cafeteria workers having to 
work so hard on God's holy 
day to provide them with a 
nourishing meal. I think that 
most SC students would rather 
"suffer" by eating a cold 
lunch or make previous 
arrangements for Sabbath 
meals than to cause others to 
have to work on the Sabbath. I 
would encourage those in 
responsible positions to consi- 
der this problem and work 
toward a solution that is more 
consistent with the principles 
of our faith. 

For any students who are 
convicted about this matter 
and are unable for one reason 
or another to make other 
arrangements, see me a few 
days in advance so that my 
wife can be prepared and have 
Sabbath dinner with us.

Prison ministries-- a growing need 

Prison. What comes to your 
mind at the mention of the 
word? Dark and gloomy 
edifices silhouetted on rocky 
mountaintops . . . lonely grey 
buildings isolated in desolate 
military-like wasteland 

surrounded by rows of barbed 
wire strung between towering 
guard stations . . . warehouses 
for the scum of society, the 
rejects of the human race, the 
derelicts, the incorrigibles. 
And on the inside-cold 
cement floors, peeling walls 
painted institutional green 
and battleship grey, dirty 
sunlight filtering through high 
cobwebbed windows, casting 
everywhere the shadows of 
metal bars, making up rows 
and rows of cells, each cell 
containing a persoTT who was 
convicted of a crime-robbery, 
murder-a person who has by 

choice or by circumstance 
become a hardened criminal, a 
person who was sentenced to 
spend up to as long as the rest 
of his life isolated from the 
world, but nonetheless, a per- 
son with a soul. Did the final 
clang of the prison bars as that 
person was locked up signal 
the end of his chance for 
salvation? No! At least, not in 
God's sight. But before a 
prisoner can accept God and 
His forgiveness, he must first 
be given the opportunity to 
hear about Him--and that is 
the reason for Prison Minis- 

Dr. Lorenzo Grant, who for 
several years has been in- 
volved in Prison Ministries, 
tells the following story: 

"I was working with the 
Hamilton County Jail when I 
found out about a prisoner 

there who had been at CUC 
the same time I was. In fact, 
we had both been in the same 
class, Old Testament Studies, 
but since he had sat on the 
back row and I on the firs"t, T 
didn't remember who he 
was." Anyway, now he was in 
the Hamilton County Jail 
being held for murder. 

"For three months this guy 
attended our meetings, sitting 
silent as a tomb on the back 
row. He never said a word 
and he seemed to have an 
attitude of hostility, but still 
he came, and that intrigued 
me. It became a challenge to 
me to reach him. 

"I never looked at him when 
I preached — he's the kind of 
guy you don't look at — but I 
preached my sermons with 
him in mind and directed my 
comments at him. ^^^ 

"Then I stopped going to the 
jail for awhile? and when I 
resumed my visitation he was 
gone. I thought I'd never hear 
from him again. 

"But then I started receiving 
letters from him. He had been 
transferred to the State Peni- 
tentiary in Nashville. His first 
letter was a real shock. He 
told me that he had listened to 
every word I had said back in 
the Hamilton County Jail — 
he had memorized those ser- 
mons! Some of (hem he could 
practically repeat word for 
word. According to him, that 
was the turning point in his

Not every prisoner who is 
witnessed to in a Prison Minis- 
tries program is going to make 
such a complete turnaround. 
But the witness does affect in 
a positive way the prison as a 
whole. When a group from 
the outside begins~reaching 
out and spending their time 
with the prisoners, it tends to 
humanize the whole place. 
Morale of both inmates and 
staff improves. Fights break 
out less often, and the prison

Every Sabbath afternoon at 
3:00, a vanload of students 
leaves from in front of Lynn

Should Adventists be involved in politics? 



"The Lord knoweth how to 
deliver the godly out of tempt- 
ations, and to reserve the 
unjust unto the day of judg- 
ment to he punished: But 
chiefly them that walk after 
the flesh in the lust of unclean- 
liness, and despise govern- 

Presumptuous are they, self- 
willed, they are not afraid to 
speak evil of dignities." (2 
Peter 2: 9-10) Even though 
the government referred to 
here is one represented as 
Christ's Lordship, we can 
apply this to some thoughts 
that Christ has on Christians 

participating in politics. As 
soon as the word politics is 
mentioned, some Christian 
"subculture" feelings of 
guilt, fear, and animosity 
seem to run rampant in the 
minds of many dedicated 
Christians. However, it 
should not be this way. 
In the biblical days, govern- 
ment played an important part 
in everyone's life, both Chris- 
tian and non-Christian. As 
documented in Luke 2, we see 
the citizens of the land had to 
go to their own cities to pay 
their taxes, not exactly like we 
do today, but they did pay 
taxes. There were tax collec- 
tors assigned in this period to 
take care of these very §ame 
manner. In Luke 20:25 we 
find probably the most impor- 
tant admonition for supporting 
the government ever found in 
scripture. That is, "Render 
unto Caesar the things which 
be Caesar's and unto God the 
things which be God's." 
What more specific way to say 
to the people "Support your 

government and your God" 
than by this? 
Alonzo Trevier Jones in his 
book Christian Patriotism tells 
of the famed Shadrach, 
Meshach, and Abednego in 
the furnace. As king Nebu- 
chadnezzar watched the three 
boys and their visitor in the 
oven, his heart was softened 
and he praised God. Jones 
says "God had commanded all 
nations to serve the King, and 
whatsoever nation that would 
not serve him would be 
punished." From this event 
we see a definite separation of 
church and state. "In making 
Nebuchadnezzer king of na- 
tions, the Lord had not made 
him king of the religion of na- 
tions." (Jones, Christian Pa- 

i the example of 
a who was in every 
t Christian but yet 

We see ir

government circles. Stephen 
Haskell in his book The Story 
of Daniel the Prophet tells us 
that "the Lord is pleased to 

have men of intelligence in 
His work if they remain true to 
Him. Through the grace of 
Christ, man may preserve the 
integrity of his character when 
surrounded by adverse cir- 
cumstances." We do see a 
need to be involved. We have 
to use the mind that our 
Creator gave us and think over 
issues. Then by casting our 
ballot, we have actively parti- 
cipated in government. 
The main warning given to 
Christians as voters was 
exemplified in the writings of 
Ellen G. White in her book 
Testimonies for the Church. 
We cannot be rash in our 
voting. Christians have to lift 
the marks of political parties 
off and go between party 
lines. "All who still retain 
political sentiments which are 
not in accordance with the 
spirit of truth are living in 
violation of the principles of 
heaven." This gives us even a 
more important role in voting 
for we have to exercise more 
time, more thought, and look 


closer and study harder the 
issues that are involved. 
Then should a Christian 
vote? Though this article will 
be printed after November 2, 
there will probably be more 
elections on which we will 
have the Christia 
ious right to vc 
patriotism is the spirit that, 
originating in love of country, 
prompts to obedience to its 
laws: to the support and 
defense of its existence, 
rights, and institutions; and to 
the promotion of its welfare. 
The spirit that originates in 
the love of the Christian's 
country is none other than the 
Holy Spirit. For without being 
born again, there can be no 
Christian; and there being no 
Christian, there can be no love 
of the Christian's country — no 
Christian Patriotism." (Jones 
Christian Patriotism) 
So only the dictates of your 
mind can help you to exercise 
your Christian patriotism, and 
if you love your country, then 
you must participate.

November 4, 1982/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 


I can remember the moment 
when time and its passage 
came to the forefront of my 
thinking, at least for a 
moment. I was in the sixth 
grade, I believe. It was near 
the end of the school year and 
for some reason a number of 
us were discussing the fact 
that we would be going into 
academy in a couple of years. 
My mind began to do some 
mathematical calculations and 
I said, "Do you realize that in 
six years we will be graduat- 
ing from academy and in a 
mere ten years we will be 
finished with college and pro- 
bably be married!" 

That thought did not impress 
my sixth grade friends, but for 
a brief moment the rapid 
progress of time was etched 
on my mind. I guess it is good 
thai the passage of time is not 
a thought that occupies our 

tinually be aware of time is to 
lose it by watching it. But 
occasionally, just occasionally, 
we should look at the passage 
of time (or some would say the 
march of events) so as to see 
our lives in perspective. 

My cousin's husband just 
had his 40th birthday. She had 
a party for him. It was the 
kind of party where "Happy 
Birthday" was sung to the 
tune of the Volga Boat song. 
She advertised this rite of 
passage as a funeral for her 
husband's youth. One friend 
read an obituary to his youth 
and another gave the funeral 
sermon. I wasn't able to 
attend, but I can imagine the 
funeral now. 

"Dear friends, we are gath- 
ered here to mourn the loss of 
our dear friend's youth. No 
longer will he be able to enjoy 

his youthful vigor, no longer 
will the fresh blush of youth 
grace his face, or the trim 
fitness of youth strengthen his 
body. All of this has been 
replaced with age spots, hair 
dye, and sore muscles." 

It sounds a bit like Solomon's 
plea not to forget your Creator 
in the days of youth, before all 
the weaknesses of old age 
debilitate the vim, vigor, and 
vitality of life. 

As a culture which idolizes 
youth, beauty, and physical 
prowess; and which relegates 
those of old age to a rather low 
place on the totem pole of 
esteem, such a funeral has 
more than humorous over- 

If we could test Einstein's 
theory and travel at near the 
speed of light, we might slow 
the aging process, but not 
having such technology we 

must seek other ways to slow 
Father Time. People use 
many things from diet and 
exercise to cream for dissolv- 
ing age spots and Oil of Olay. 
The body in this life will 
always be subject to decay, 
but in John 6:47 it says, "He 
who believes has everlasting 
life." That life begins the day 
you believe. It is not a 
biological invulnerability to 
the onset of old age, but it is a 
quality of existence that will 
never end. In reality, it is the 
quality of life that is of 
significance anyway, for those 
with no grasp on life's quality 
are anxious for their lives to 
end, and some people even 
take their own lives. But 
where life has quality it never 
ends, for the brief hiatus of 
death is no more an interrup- 
tion to eternal life than a good 
night's sleep is to our earthly 


Why should I be writing 
about time and getting older 
to those who are in the bloom 
of youth. Well, I guess it 
relates to the saying, "Know- 
ing where you are going helps 
you to prepare for the trip." 

Believe it or not all of you are 
going to this place called old 
age. The trip there is as 
inevitable as the earth's cir- 
cuit around the sun. It is a 
journey with much pleasure 
when properly prepared for. 
And it is a journey of much 
pain and suffering when not 
properly prepared for. 

The proper preparation is to 
believe John 6:47 and learn to 
experience the quality of eter- 
nal life that Christ died to 
provide us. Living with that 
eternal life as today's posses- 
sion gives today a quality that 
is never-ending. 

Peeke directs 
student employment 

Robert Peeke is the new 
Student Employee Adminis- 
trator at SC. The Employ- 
ment office has been formed 
to assist students in finding a 
job and performing it satisfac- 
torily. To do this, Peeke is 
exploring possibilities of on- 
and off-campus jobs. A job 
bank is being formed to aid 
area employers and students. 

Workshops are being held at 
academies to help students 
with writing resumes and 
organizing class schedules for 
college. Also, on-campus 
workshops are held once a 
semester for SC students on 
how to write resumes, work 
for promotions, and interview- 

The Employment Office will 
have a career planning library 
containing information of 
companies, businesses, hospi- 
tals, conferences, and how to 
meet these job qualifications. 

Another goal which Peeke 
hopes to reach is an internship 
Program. This program would 
be available after the sopho- 
more year, or after prerequi- 
Sl 'es are completed. Every 
°ther semester, a student 
w ould work as an intern in his 
held of study. Completing a 
tour-year degree would take 
t've years, but the graduate 
w ould have direct exposure to 
hl s chosen career. Also, 
k Peeke w °uld like to obtain the 

placement book for jobs from 
the Dean of Students. 

The Employment Office, now 
located across from the Test- 
ing and Counseling Center, 
will be moving to the area 
between the playroom and the 

Peeke feels the new services 
will benefit those students 
who have to work to get a 
college education. 

Enrollment stabilizes 

Enrollment at Southern 
College dropped only 36 stu- 
dents in the first 10 weeks of 
classes. "This is the lowest 
attrition rate in five years," 
said Dr. Frank Knittel, pres- 
ident of SC. "We are very 
pleased with this figure." 
Knittel cited the free summer 
tuition as a factor in the small 
drop. Other factors include 
the new learning center and 
SC's Testing and Counseling 

Southern College's begin- 
ning enrollment dropped 55 
from last year but the figure is 
small compared to other drops 
in ether Adventist institutions 

such as Andrews University 
and Pacific Union College. 
Overall the Adventist college 
and university system had a 
net drop of 750 students. 

Knittel felt that enrollment 
drops throughout the system 
are due to a lack of commit- 
ment to the proposition of 
higher education on the 
church level. "The Seventh- 
day Adventist church has 
become much more urban," 
Knittel says. "The church is 
not a social drawing power. 
There is an increasing tenden- 
cy for the church to have less 
influence in our daily lives."

Student tour Europe 

by Patll Gentry 
Cultural shock began for 
jr first week's stay in 
London where mini-skirts 
have been revived; punk, or 
the "new wave" has arrived, 
with its burgundy to orange- 
dyed, closely- cropped and 
chopped haircuts, mohawks, 
second-skin jeans, loose sack- 
like tops and gypsy makeup; 
fruit stands, bakery shops, 
and cheese stores replace our 
supermarkets; "policemen" 
are called ' 'bobbies; " and 
Rolls Royces, Jaguars and the 
like are as plentiful as pine 
trees in a Tennessee forest. 
Thus over six weeks of travel 
throughout eight European 
countries began May 13 on an 
overnight Delta flight out of 
Atlanta to London's Chatwick 
Airport for some 23 students, 
teachers and friends from 
Arizona to New York through 
the Southern College-sponsor- 
ed European Study Tour direc- 
ted by Dr. William Wohlers, 

professor of history at SC and * 
assisted by Dr. Charles Zuill, 
professor of art. Up to six 
hours of credit was offered at 
no additional charge to inter- 
ested students. 
As we traveled north in 
England, we as college-age 
tourists were especially cur- 
ious to visit the university 
towns of Oxford and Cam- 
bridge. I personally remem- 
ber keeping an eye out for the 
inventor of the oxford shirt, or 
at least a pair of loafers or 
khakis, but alasl The prep- 
piest sight observed was a 
young man dressed in a white 
long-collared shirt and black 
pants (polyester?) peddling 
down the street on a bicycle. 
After a ferryboat ride across 
the North Sea, three pounds of 
Dutch chocolate, and a visit to 
the red light capitol of the 
world, Amsterdam, we found 
ourselves in Brugges, Bel- 
gium. Eating Belgium waf- 

fles, potato fries, riding on 
and carousing up and 
down fourteenth century cob- 
blestone streets didn't exactly 
leave us feeling "coast soap" 
clean. Naturally we were 
disappointed when our hotel 
manager informed us that 
under no uncertain terms were 
we to use the only bathtub in 
the place. "But how are we 
supposed to fit in the sink?" I 
queried, towel, soap, shampoo 
and washcloth in hand. 
Judging by her irate response 
concerning how sloppy young 
people are, there was obvious- 
ly no point in continuing 
While Sandra Schiau and 
Paul Haerich were busily 
attending every concert, ballet 
and play performance, while 
Dr. Wohlers and Dr. Zuill 
were surveying local pastry 
shops and some of us were 
simply trying to take a bath, 
others like Linda Unruh (who 

said "I do" the night we 
returned) and Judi Boles (who 
got married July 25) consider- 
ed mail and phone calls from 
the U.S. to be the highlights of 
their trip. 
In Paris early Sunday morn- 
ing, American tourist Gerald 
Owens came to our hotel to 
show us around town. Before 
leaving on our sightseeing 
venture, Gerald gave the girls 
a thorough rundown on the 
perils of street life and the 
dangers of smiling at strange 
French men (our accommoda- 
tions were only a few blocks 
from the red light district). He 
forgot to mention children. 
Pam Kenney and Laura 
Bianchi were greeted by two 
little girls in a Parisian subway 
station who turned out to be 
gypsy beggar-thieves intend- 
ing to rid them of their purses 
or other valuable possessions. 
Shocked, Pam and Laura 
clung to their belongings, 
preventing any loss. 
Storm clouds were gathering 
the afternoon we visited the 
Versailles Palace, but group 
members were surprised to 
find America's own NBC tele- 
vision cameras and economic 
news reporter Irving R. Levine 
at the palace gate on special 
assignment preceding Presi- 
dent Reagan's visit to Ver- 

From France we chugged by 
train through Switzerland's 
snow-capped Alps. Florence, 
Italy abounded with cultural 
antiquities by such names as 
Leonardo da Vinci, Dante, and 
Michelangelo. The warm 

brick streets welcomed shop- 
pers as did the sidewalk 
merchants hawking their 
wares, be it leather wallets, 
colorful woven baskets, or 
mouth-watering Italian ice 

Progressing to Rome several 
days later, we enjoyed the 
sunshine and rugged beauty 
of the ancient ruins of Rome 
varying from Nero's old palace 
to the Imperial forums. We 
were sobered by a trek i 
through the Catacombs, hand- 
dug caverns, the dwelling for 
many early Christians and 
burial place for martyrs. 

During a "pastry stop" one 
morning, Judi Boles was 
standing on a curb under some 
telephone wires waiting for 
the others to buy their delica- 
cies when a pigeon resting on 
the wire above decided to do 
his business in the middle ot 
Judi's clean blonde hair. 
Fortunately, Dr. Wohlers 
cousin, Bobbie Sue Wohlers 
(a registered nurse), w 
quick to Judi's rescue. 

Highlights of our stay in 
Rome included the Pope | 
farewell in a ceremonious 
parade from the Vatican torn

Gavin McCloud, the captain of

ducer, directors, and cast who 
were there to film part of a 
special program which was 
aired this season. 

From Venice we traveled by 
train to Vienna, Austria, 
where we toured several 
palaces and art galleries, and 
attended the Vienna Philhar- 
monic Orchestra. 

After a stop in the beautiful 
Austrian village of Salzburg 
where the "Sound of Music" 
was filmed and Malinda ate a 
record number of pastries and 
Swiss candy bars in one 
sitting, we arrived in Munich, 
West Germany, the evening of 
June 17 with only ten days 
remaining in the tour. Rising 
daily to a continental breakfast 
of hard rolls, jam, and hot 


chocolate, we spent Sabbath 
in the southern part of Ger- 
many in a quaint little town 
called Garmisch, hiking up the 
mountains until we found an 
ideal spot overlooking the 
Alpine Mountains for an out- 
door church service complete 
with a sermon by Malinda. 
After a peaceful walk down 
the mountain, we returned to 

Later we visited Dachau, a 
former German concentration 
camp, now a museum whose 
purpose is to portray as accur- 
ately as possible the tragedies 
that occurred there and the 
present determination that 
human torture should never 
be used again. 

Our stay in Germany conclu- 
ded at the Adventist Marien- 
hohe Seminary outside Darm- 

stadt, nestled among rolling 
hills, cow pastures, an Ameri- 
can Army base, and streetcar 
lines. The walk from the 
streetcar to the college was an 
unforgettable one mile of up- 
hill struggle. By this time our 
suitcases were twice as heavy, 
but our only choice was to 
keep plugging along if we 
wanted supper and a place to 
sleep that night. 
From there time flew and 
seemingly in a flash we once 
more stood in an airport, 
dressed in our Italian shoes 
and belts, and London blouses 
and dresses, this time bound 
for home. Conclusively we 
agreed that Europe is a great 
place to visit, but America is a 
great place to live.

Ugly men 
fare better 

s Digest News Sei 


Ugly men have better job: 
and better educated wives 
than good-looking men, a new 
survey says. 

The survey found that looks 
have no effect on income, but 
in other areas, attractiveness 
in men hinders gains in status. 

The survey was done by 
University of North Carolina 

The least-attractive men 
have the most education and 
their occupational status is 
higher on the job classification 
scale the researchers found. 
The survey showed that uglier 
men performed better at 
school and had sexual rela- 
tions at a later age than their 
better-looking counterparts. 

However, the survey said 
that "outstandingly" good- 
looking men attain jobs of 
equal prestige as those of the 
least attractive. 

The survey also found that a 
woman's attractiveness was 
tot related to education, occu- 
lation, or personal income. 

Nevertheless, there was con- 
siderable evidence that femi- 
nine attractiveness affects the 
adult status through marriage 
to a high-income husband. 

The survey said that the 
more attractive the woman, 
the better educated her hus- 
band. The opposite was true 
for men. 

There was no correlation 
between a woman's looks and 
her school performance or 
adolescent sexual activity, ac- 
cording to the survey. 

The study used data from a 
survey in 1970 of 601 men and 
745 women. That survey 
followed up a study of men 
and women who were first 
questioned in 1955, during 
their sophomore year in high 
school. Research assistants 
then rated the respondent's 
looks, using high school pic- 
tures. The survey was made 
public on September 7 at the 
77th Annual meeting of the 
Sociological Asso-

When can an SC student 
wear a striped shirt, check- 
ered pants, a paisley tie and 
white socks, and be in vogue? 
And when can that same 
student blow his nose on his 
tie and be considered cute? On 
Nerd Day, of course! 

The second day of Fall Festi- 
val Week, Nerd Day was an 
opportunity for the uninhi- 
bited to display the crazy, 
clashy, wild, weird, and 
generally "nerdy" sides of 

their characters without being 
carried away to the funny 
Out of style and hopelessly 
mismatched clothing, 
sized or broken gla 
greased hair, a variety of head 
gear, idiotic expressions, 
coordinated and clumsy gaits 
and nasal slurred speech 
were all used by the one-day 
nerds to make their costumes 
as realistic as possible. Walk- 
ing' across campus at any rime 

during the day, one would be 
likely to encounter anything 
from mad scientists to mar- 
tians to lunatics to "flashers" 
to. . .well, you name it— if it was 
crazy, it was there! 

Nerd Day concluded with an 
official "Nerd Picture" taken 
on the steps of Lynn Wood 
Hall, a picnic supper, and a 
program consisting of a blue- 
grass band and a nerd skit pu 
on by Steve Vogel (WiHaW) 
and Steve Decker (Wilbur).

Student park hosts 
Great Pumpkin 

Ghosts, witches, nerds, three 
blind mice, and the likes of 
Dracula, Robin Hood, and 
King Tut, along with many 
other SC students invaded the 
Student Park Sunday night, 
October 31, for the SA's 
annual Great Pumpkin Caper. 
After refreshments of 
doughnuts, apples, and hot 
chocolate were served, Hallo- 
weeners were treated with a 
short musical jamboree by the 
White Oak Mountaineers, a 
bluegrass band made up of six 
SC students. The costume 
contest with total prizes of 
$250 followed along with many 
cute and many strange crea- 
tures. As E. 0. Grundset, the 
emcee for the evening, put it, 
"Tarzan and Jane (alias Mark 
Huber and Craig Wilkinson), 
though we're not exactly sure 

which is which," won the 
"historical hysterical sec- 
tion." The novelty section, 
which the emcee correctly 
defined as meaning "it could 
be anything," revealed, to the 
roaring delight of all, the third 
place winners of $20 to be the 
deans of Thatcher, Mrs. Run- 
yan and Mrs. Somers, as Toga 
partiers dressed in white 
sheets with wreaths of leaves 
atop their heads. King Tut 
rose from his tomb to receive 
the second prize of $25, and an 
adorable Evonne Hanson and 
Terry Shaw as Raggedy Ann 
and Andy "came out of the 
closet," according to Mr. 
Grundset to win the first 
prize of $30. 
The seasonal section was 
won by a modern witch on a 
cleaner, and six tin- 

foiled galactical visitors won 
the group section. Grand 
prize of $50 went to Moni 
Gennick as a knight in shining 
armor. Although Mr. 

Grundset suggested that it 
had been "fashioned out of 
many aluminum cans," it was 
actually made of sheets of 
metal welded together by a 
friend of hers. 
While waiting for the movie, 
"The Russians are Coming," 
to be set up, marshmallows 
were roasted and eaten 
around a huge bonfire, and 
due to some delay in "The 
Russians are coming", the 
marshmallows were also used 
for ammunition in what turned 
out to be the Great Marsh- 
mallow Fight. 

Windstruck strikes 

John Biddle, the "world's 
foremost yachting cinema- 
tographer-lecturer" was pres- 
ent on our campus this week- 
end and gave a live narration 
°f "Windstruck" before a 
gym packed with students and 
community residents. 

"Windstruck," Biddle's 26th 
annual sailing film show, was 
a 90- minute action and humor- 
filled film-lecture entertain- 
ment for all. The film cap- 
tures the strenuous human 
challenge in slalom racing, 
heavy weather racing, cata- 
maran marathon, and hot-air 
ballooning, and evoked spon- 
taneous suspense and cheer in 
'he audience. 

The overture gives particular 
attention to crews in yachts 
ranging from 30-footers to 
maxis, drawn up in battle 
array or actually joined battle 
with the impetuous, heaving 

a broad spectrum of unequiv- 
ocal eccentricity and other 
competition in sailing races 
highlighted by a thrilling and 
exciting race of eleven Hobie 
16's from Fort Lauderdale to 
Virginia Beach. 
The race was described by 
the film maker as a "grueling 
and demanding six-day, 
twenty-four hours-a-day 1000 
mile bash up the Atlantic coast 
climaxed by rounding the 

treacherous, and in this case, 
stormy Cape Hatteras." 

The finale presented adven- 
ture of hot-air ballooning over 
a magnificent French historic 
site. This segment features 
fantastic castles, delectable 
cuisine, and palatable wines 
and champagne. The immi- 
nent competition between 
men and the wind is shown as 
the trip comes to an end. 

In short, John Biddle's 
"Windstruck" is a crucial and 
defiant dispute between some 
intrepid sailors and gearbust- 
ing winds which in the long 
run, the former win by their 
determination, temerity, and 
love for adventure. 

IABC organizes student 

The Chattanooga Chapter of 
the International Association 
of Business Communicators 
(IABC) launched a student 
chapter of IABC for area 
communication students at a 
special meeting October 26. 
The special meeting, held at 
UTC's student center, was 
attended by 26 Southern 
College students and several 
area college and university 
students and area organiza- 
tional communicators. 

IABC, with a national mem- 
bership of over 10,000, is a 
trade association for industrial 
and organizational communi- 
cators and public and indus- 
trial relations specialists. 
The Chattanooga chapter has 
a local membership of over 50 
area organizational communi- 

The student chapter, initially 
called Choo-Choo/IABC, will 
be affiliated with IABC and 
sponsored by the Chattanooga 
chapter. Its purpose is to heir/ 
area communication students 
make the transition from 
school to a meaningful job in 
organizational communica- 
tions. Choo-Choo/IABC will 
be open to communication 
students from all area colleges 
and universities. 

Debbie Metcalf, IABC Dis- 
trict II vice-president, Bir- 
mingham, Alabama, made a 
presentation and the featured 
speaker for the meeting was 
David McFadden, manager of 
Hospital Relations, Hospital 
Corporation of America, 


According to Dennis Yocom, 
lABC/Chattanooga's presi- 
dent, student chapters affil- 
iated with IABC is a concept 
receiving more attention in 
local chapters near education- 
al institutions nationwide. 
' 'The idea for forming a 
student chapter for Chatta- 
nooga area communication 
students came up about eight 
months ago, and IABC/Chat- 
tanooga's Education Commit- 
tee has been working on the 
idea ever since," Yocom said. 

The IABC/Chattanooga Edu- 
cation Committee, co-chaired 
by Cynthia DeRiemer, UTC 
Communication Department 
and Frances Andrews, South- 
ern College Communication 
Department, solicited infor- 
mation from other IABC chap- 
ters which had formed IABC 
student chapters. "We re- 
ceived guidelines from the 
international headquarters in 
San Francisco and other in- 
formation from other student 
chapters which really helped 
the committee's efforts in 
establishing this student chap- 
ter," DeRiemer said. She also 
noted the closest student 
chapter to the Chattanooga 
area is in Atlanta. 

Individuals wanting more 
information about Choo- ^^~ 
Choo/IABC should contact '{p 
Cynthia DeRiemer at the UTC 
Communication Department 
or Frances Andrews at South- 
ern College Communication 
Department in Collegedale.

Acne cure? 

Campus Digest News Service 

Finally, a cure for acne has 
been approved by the U. S. 
Food and Drug Administration 
and it really works. 
The miracle drug is Accu- 
tane, a synthetic chemical 
related to Vitamin A. One 
capsule of Accutane once a 
day for 15 to 20 weeks can 
clear up even severe cases of 
acne. Even after injake of the 
drug is stopped, its curing 
effect continues for several 
Accutane had to pass inten- 
sive tests to receive FDA 
approval. In the past six 
years, more than 500 people 
have been given the drug. 
Every patient's acne cleared 
up noticeably or completely. 
Today, Accutane can guaran- 
tee almost 100 percent re- 
covery from severe facial 
acne, according to Dr. Peter 
Pochi, of Boston University 
School of Medicine, who 
helped with recent studies. 

Until now, nothing has been 
effective against severe acne. 
Tetracycline, an antibiotic, 
helped a little, but not really. 
| Injections of steroid hormones 

also have been tried. Even 
washing the face and remov- 
ing fats from the diet had not 
shown any positive results. 
Accutane was finally dis- 
covered through a long con- 
nection with Vitamin A. In the 
1940s, a skin disease similar to 
acne was diagnosed as a 
Vitamin A deficiency, so a 
lotion, containing Vitamin A 
was applied directly to the 
skin. It worked in only mild 
cases. Then retinoids, a 
synthetic derivative, was dis- 
covered in cancer research 
and dermatologists tried it on 

Thanks to the retinoids, Vi- 
tamin A and Accutane, relief 
can be found from the physical 
and psychological scars of 
severe acne. Although acne 
plagues almost every adoles- 
cent, more than 350,000 
Americans suffer from cystic 
acne— an acne that does not 
disappear after puberty. 
The facial carbuncles and 
pits of cystic acne begin when 
the sebaceous glands, beneath 
the skin, start releasing se- 
bum. Sebum is a natural oil 

that prevents the skin from 
drying out. But when dead 
skin clogs its normal passage 
through the skin's pres, se- 
bum collects and eventually 
infects the surrounding area. 
Although Accutane seems to 
be able to set the bodys 
system right again, the drug 
has some side effects:chapped 
lips and dry skin and mucous 
membrane. A few patients 
have experienced hair loss, 
muscle pain or inflammaWJ 
around the eyes. Until further 
studies are conducted, A«u 
tane should not be taken by 
pregnant women.

I can't believe it. I really 
can't believe it. 

For the first time in decades, 
the SA officers of SC actually 
put everything on the line and 
stood in front of the entire 
student body last week and 
what happens? Some poor 
kids who obviously can't live 
without Captain Kangaroo and 
Sesame Street get into an 
argument over what to watch 
on TV.' 

That's pathetic. It's becom- 
ing very apparent to me that 
the lack of good movies this 
year is producing culturally 
deprived students. But what 
about the real problems that 
exist? There are several 
things that I can think of to 

worry about that were never 
even mentioned. 

Is WSMC going religious? 
This is a fear which has 
nagged at the hearts of many. 
Since this station is known to 
be KZ106's biggest competi- 
tor, 1 believe this is probably 
just a rumor which is being 
circulated by the opposition. 
With WSMC's wildest deejay, 
Jon Larrabee, sitting on the 
platform, I don't know how 
anyone could forget an issue 
this important. 

Was there any special reason 
why several cases of Tylenol 
capsules were found in Hack- 
man Hall? Of course not. One 
of the teachers probably just 
had an extra-strength head- 

ache from all the ether and 
formaldehyde floating around. 
Is the administration really 
looking into the possibilities of

Is Taco Bell going to merge 
with the CK? This was an idea 
suggested by the SA itself 
after several freshmen tried to 
use their ID cards downtown. 
Some of the foods being 
considered are spicy bean 
shakes, lominos supreme and 
Sam's chicken bellgrande's. 
Cary Gregory was definitely 
the person to ask about this 

development as he's been to 
both places so often. 

Will E. O. Grundset be 
featured on "Real People"

have been his Halloween cos-

original. This is another good 
question for those in the SA 
who are responsible for stu- 
dent entertainment. 

Is it true that the Religion 
Department is putting out a 
pamphlet entitled "How to 
Operate a Ford"? Sounds a 
bit funny. I would think the

would handle something like 
that, but maybe some new 
ideas have been introduced to 

Like 1 said, these are just a 
few of the many questions 
which I personally tend to 
worry about. Of course, if the 
SA officers can ever be per- 
suaded to go through another 
grueling interrogation ses- 
sion, I plan on making a 
checklist with all of the really 
important issues on it. I'm 
going to get some of these 
issues cleared up once and for 
all. And after all, isn't that 
what the SA, voice of the 

student body, is for?

Van Halen concert forbidden 
to SC students 

Southern College received 
publicity on two area radio 
stations concerning a Van 
Halen concert held at the UTC 
Roundhouse in Chattanooga. 
The coverage concerned Chat- 
tanooga area colleges and 
prep schools which were dis- 
couraging their students from 
attending the heavy metal 
rock group. A disc jockey at 
KZ-106. Gary Jeff Walker, 
told the Southern Accent that 
several Southern College stu- 
dents called the station and 
said they were going to the' 
Van Halen concert, regardless 
of any school policy. Walker 
said he did not mention 
Southern College's concert 
policy on the air, but he said 
that forbidding students to go 
lo a concert is not right unless 
it is a basic policy of the 

The Dean of Students office 
at Southern College did not 
take a formal stand on attend- 

until November 7, the day of 
the concert. Signs were 
posted in both residence halls 
concerning the concert. "No- 
tice-The Van Halen concert is 
off limits to all SC students. 
Disciplinary action will be 
taken if attended." 
In a statement to the South- 
ern Accent, Everett Schlisner 
said that the administration 
did not approve of students 
going to the Van Halen con- 
cert. "This is not a place for 
an Adventist Christian to be, ' ' 
Schlisner said. "We can, with 
a clear conscience, say 'This is 
off limits.'" He added that he 
would be looking for SC 
students before the concert 

Despite the threat of disci- 
pline, some Southern College 
students apparently went to 
the concert anyway. It was not 
known at press time if any 
Southern College students 
were caught at the concert. 
The Dean of Student's office 

ing the Van Halen concert refused to comment. 

Development department solicits funds 

Southern College. 

In an attempt to keep tuition 
down while at the same time 
improving the facilities at 
Southern College, the Office 
of Development is working to 
solicit funds from both private 
and corporate sources. 
Dr. Jack McClarty, director 
of development, listed several 
reasons for soliciting funds. 
The first and most important 
use for solicited funds is 
scholarships. The scholarship 
fund is invested, and the 
college uses the interest for 
the actual scholarship money 
while the principal remains in- 
tact and continues to earn 

Donations collected by the 
development office are also 
used for improvement of cam- 
pus facilities and the purchas- 
ing of equipment. The music 
building, which was com- 
pleted in 1980, and the Hu- 
manities building currently 
under construction, have both 
been funded by corporate and 
private donations. 
This year, private donors and 
at least 15 corporate founda- 
tions have donated a total of 

$628,630.52. The corporate 
donations are generally ear- 
marked for specific purposes. 
"It's hard to find anyone who 
is interested in helping with 
operating expenses," explains 
McClarty. "That usually has 
to come from the church. Also, 
it is easier to solicit funds for 
some departments than it is 
for others." McClarty went 
on to say that while it is 
relatively easy to find donors 
for departments such as nurs- 
ing, for example, where stu- 
dents are learning skills that 
will be directly useful to the 
donating foundation, it is 
much more difficult, he" says, 
to solicit funds for depart- 
ments such as Art or Home 
Both private and corporate 
donors give in response to 
some kind of request by the 
Office of Development. Pri- 
vate donors are mainly alumni 
and members of the Southern 
Union, who receive the annual 
fund appeal. This year about 
35.000 letters were sent out in 
a mass mailing, and according 
to McClarty. the response has 

been very good. "The alumni 
have been very generous," 
states McClarty. "We wish 
that students when they leave, 
would remember the school. It 
is appreciative alumni tbat 
keep this school going." 

Corporate funds are solicited 
by proposals which are sub- 
mitted to foundations by the 
development office each year. 
According to McClarty, about 
ten percent of those founda- 
tions who receive proposals 
respond to them. This is quite 
high on the national average. 

While the immediate goal for 
the scholarship fund is to help 
the very needy, McClarty and 
the development office do 
have an ultimate goal in mind: 
first to stabilize the tuition and 
then, finally, to start lowering 
it. This, however, will not 
happen in the very near future 
and as McClarty says, "It will 
take a lot of concern and 
commitment on the part of 
students, parents, alumni, 
and the church to put it 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/November 11, 1982 

^The Collegedale 

This past week, the Southern Accent printed a letter from a 
disgruntled Southern College student concerning the 
cafeteria. Stephen Morris told how he declined a job at the 
cafeteria because he did not want to work one Sabbath a 
month. Morris went on to tell how Southwestern Adventist 
College had a superior food service system by serving cold 
food on Sabbath thus keeping the cafeteria staff to a 
minimum. The Southern Accent printed this letter because 
the students need a forum to air their feelings and opinions 
regardless of the validity of their arguments. 

But our story doesn't end here. Within three days of the 
Accent's publication the word was out that people were 
talking about the letter or article I had written concerning the 
food service here at Southern College. 

As 1 reflect on this, I can see that this episode is just one 
more case of a disease which has infected almost all of 
Collegedale. This disease— The Collegedale Syndrome— has 
several distinct symptoms which I will try to describe. 

First of all, some interesting 'news' must take place. This 
piece of information usually is of little consequence but 
serves as the culture for the disease to grow. 

Secondly, community and college people must hear of the 
story. The story then grows and grows in size. The actors in 
this mini-drama may change names. The deeds or alleged 
crimes certainly must become more exciting so the tale can 
continue to grow bigger and bigger. 

Finally, the virulent disease spreads to many people, 
affecting lives everywhere. And when the tale gets back to 
the originator of the deed, the story bears little resemblance 
of the truth. 

Fortunately in my case, the disease was very mild. I could 
laugh off the incident as a case of mistaken identity and point 
to the fact that in the six years 1 lived at SAC, I had enjoyed 
many hot Sabbath meals at the SAC cafeteria. 

But in many cases, the Collegedale Syndrome — gossip — is 
no laughing matter. Many innocent people have been 
damaged by thoughtless lies and inuendos. In fact, many of 
the problems at Southern College can be traced to 
community people who were sure the theology department 

was corrupt and teaching heresy. They told half-truths and 
outright lies and the reputation of an outstanding institution 
was damaged. t 

Unless the Collegedale community and the Adventist 
church in general can come to grips with this real problem, 
the whole future of Christian education is in jeopardy.

Dear Editor, 

In response to the letter 
concerning employment on 
Sabbath in the cafeteria, I 
would like to speak up. 

First of all, Sabbath is a 
special day when friends and 
family can get together to 
share and eat. It is a special 
time and with our busy sched- 
ules we deserve that time. 

Secondly, working in the 
cafeteria once a month is not 
going to kill anyone or cause 
anyone to be lost. Is our 

salvation dependent upon our 
works or Jesus' gift of eternal 
life and our acceptance of it? 

Remember the Pharisees 
criticized Jesus and His disci- 
ples for picking grain on 
Sabbath because they were 
hungry. Read Jesus' reply to 
them in Matt 12:1-4. 

Another point I would like to 
make is that there are only two 
stoves on each floor in the 
main dorm and one stove on 
each floor in the annex. Some 

would have to wait a long time 
before being able to eat. 

I feel the cafeteria deserves a 
hand for the fine Sabbath 
meals they provide us. Good 
job cafeteria staff I 

Also, it is not our right to 
judge or put anyone down. 
Only through love can we 
change people. Instead of 
pointing a condemning finger, 
point a finger of love. 

Cindy Torgesen 

Dear Editor: 

As a former full time staff 
employee of the SMC Cafe- 
teria I was not shocked, but 
somewhat surprised to read 
the article written by Mr. 
Morris (Cafeteria Vs The Sab- 
bath Keeper). As a former 
member of the cafeteria staff, 
I can tell you that each staff 
member is a dedicated mem- 
ber of our church. Each 
member that works there on 
Sabbath is there because it is 
neccesary for them to be 
there. The issue of keeping 
the Sabbath holy, a rather 
touchy subject* I feel was 
blown way out of proportion. 
Nowhere in any of Mrs. 
White's writings is there a 
quote that tells us we should 
close our school cafeterias on 
Sabbath. Mrs. White is often 
quoted as saying things that 
are simply not in any of her 
writings, but are taken out of 
context to add credibility to a 
personal opinion. There is no 

practical way for over half of 
the students to find a way to 
eat other than in the cafeteria. 
Although I am sure the 
general public would appre- 
ciate Mr. Morris' suggestions 
of dining out at his home, I do 
not think that over half of the 
student body showing up at 
his home for breakfast, lunch, 
and supper would be a prac- 
tical solution to the problem 
either. As for refrigerators in 
each room — who is to provide 
the money to install them, and 
who is going to provide for 
some of the needier students 
the food to put in them? I also 
feel that Mr. Morris gives 
neither the student body nor 
the staff at the cafeteria any 
credit for having any sense. If 
there was a way to eat 
elsewhere on Sabbath, I am 
quite sure that the staff or 
students would have come up 
with it by now. I am also sure 
that if Mr. Morris had done 
some investigating before 

writing the article, by going I0 
the cafeteria, he would have 
discovered that on Sabbath 
there is a minimal staff. Also, 
he would have known that 
much of the work is done on 
Friday, and unnecessary work 
on the Sabbath is eliminated. 
Each member on hand is 
doing a missionary service, as 
did Christ when he fed one or 
his own in the fields, on trie 
Sabbath day. The Bible does 
not say that Christ told ws 
disciples to go hungry as a 
punishment for failing to maw* 
preparations on Friday- ? 
we not to follow his examp^ 
My suggestion is that

Dear Editor: 

As the wife of a Southern 
College faculty member, I feel 
compelled to respond to 
Stephen Morris' letter in your 
November 4 issue. 

We invite a number of stu- 
dents to our home for Sabbath 
dinner nearly every week, not 
because they would be forced 
to fast if we did not, but 
because we enjoy sharing our 
home and dinner with them. 
However, though the bulk of 
the food preparation is done 
on Friday, I do find it is work 
to feed my family and guests. I 
enjoy it, but it is work never- 
theless. 1 am not sure why it is 
acceptable for me and Mr. 
Morris' wife to serve college 
students on Sabbath but un- 
acceptable for him to do so.

4/SOUTHERN ACCENT/November 11, 1982 



Is the late leave system discriminatory' 




I feei there is discrimination 
between the dorms, I am a 
junior, and I have to get all my 
late leaves approved, while 
Freshman John Doe over in 
Talge can simply write his 
name on a piece of paper and 
walk out the door. But 
according to deans of Thatcher 
and Talge Halls, there is very 
little difference between the 
late leave procedures of the 
two dormitories. 

For residents of Thatcher, 
with the exception of fresh- 
men on study hall, an unlim- 

ited number of late leaves can 
be received, but only by 
approval of the deans (fresh- 
men on study hall are allowed 
no late leaves). Annex resi- 
dents are allowed four late 
leaves per month without a 
dean's approval. 

Over in Talge Hall, seniors 
are allowed an unlimited 
number of late leaves. Jun- 
iors are allowed four late 
leaves per month, while soph- 
omores and freshmen are 
allowed two per month. NONE 
of these require a dean's 


All this may sound fair. 
These are the "written laws," 
but in actuality, are they the 
enforced laws? In Thatcher, 
yes; in Talge, no. 

Due to the fact that the front 
doors, of Talge are usually 
unlocked, it is logical that 
guys would be able to slip in or 
out of their dormitory easier 
than the girls slipping in or out 
of Thatcher. The front doors 
of Thatcher stay locked be- 
tween the hours of 11 p.m. 
and 6 a.m., making it virtually 
impossible for the girls to get 

in and out of the dorm without 
the deskworker's knowledge. 

While it is true that girls over 
in the Annex are allowed more 
privileges, 1 feel this freedom 
should not be granted accord- 
ing to the room number on the 
door, but given according to 
age, class standing, and 
possibly GPA. 

A classic argument is, "You . 
knew the rules before you 
came, so if you don't like 
them, then why did you 
come?" However, knowing 
the rules does not always 
make them seem fair. 

by Millie Runyan 


We hear the comment fre- 
quently that late leaves are 
hard to get in Thatcher Hall. If 
you were to see the late leave 
bulletin board in the main 
dorm and the sign-out sheet in 
the Annex, 1 think you would 
question this comment as 
much as the deans do. 

The policy in Thatcher Annex 
is a bit more liberal than the 
main dorm because of the 
maturity of the residents 
there. Door lock is at 11 p.m. 
every night, and one auto- 
matic late leave until midnight 
per week is granted. Any 
additional late leaves must be

Recently weekend tours were 
taken by several of Southern 
College's music groups. On 
the weekend of November 5 
and 6 the Southern College 
Concert Band, under the 
direction of Patricia Silver, 
took a tour which included 
sacred and secular perfor- 
mances at Madison Academy, 
Highland Academy, and Bor- 
deaux Church. Among the 
numbers in the sacred reper- 
toire were "Fallen, Fallen is 
Babylon," a dramatic work 
featuring the percussion sec- 
tion; "A Sacred Suite," com- 
posed of special arrangements 
of well-known tunes such as 
"Sweet Hour of Prayer," 
"Onward Christian Soldiers" 
and "Battle Hymn of the 
Republic;" and two numbers 
by the brass ensemble: "Pa- 
van and Galliard" and "Like a 
River Glorious." 


The secular concert included 
the "Broadway Show-Stop- 
pers Overture," the popular 
"Stars and Stripes Forever" 
and "Russian Christmas 
Music." an extremely difficult 
combination of the ancient 
Christmas carol "Carol of the 
Little Russian Children" with 
some original material and 
some ancient liturgical 

The Southern College Cho- 
rale, directed by Dr. Don 
Runyan, took a tour the last 
weekend of October to Au- 
gusta and Savannah, Georgia; 
Jacksonville, Florida; and 
Columbia, South Carolina. 
This tour was unique in that it 
was entirely student-directed. 
Student directors were Evan 
Chesney, Sydney Whiting, 
also the group's pianist, and 
Scott Aycock, all Senior music 
majors. Dr. Runyan com- 

mented concerning the trip, 
"It was a typical first tour of 
the year; first tours always 
draw the group closer together 
and make them work more as 
a unit." Dr. and Mrs. 
McClarty also accompanied 
the group on tour. Mrs. 
McClarty narrated for both 
sacred and secular concerts. 
Die Meistersinger provided 
entertainment for Little Creek 
Academy's Fall Banquet on 
November 7. Selections in 
eluded "Scarborough Fair,' 

"Banjo Medley," and "Toot- 
Toot-Tootsie." Also perfor- 
ming at the banquet were 
Cynthia Patterson playing a 
harp solo and Jenine Fryling 
with a violin solo. 

A Symphony tour is sched- 
uled for this weekend, No- 
vember 12 and 13, to include 
concerts at Avon Park Church 
and Forest Lake Academy. 
The group will leave at 10 
p.m. Thursday and travel all 
tight so that Friday can be- 

spent either at the beach ot 
Cypress Gardens. Soloists on 
the tour will be Jenine Fryling 
and Sondra Snider. Linda 1m, 
a former first violinist, who is 
currently in Orlando, will be 
joining the symphony for the 
concert at Forest Lake. 
The Symphony was invited to 
perform at Disney World, but 
had to decline the offer since 
the concert was to be on 
Friday night.

Student: "Why do they make 
us go to church? I mean even 
God doesn't make us go to 

Bietz: "Are you talking about 
the fact that they make you 
sign out to go to church?" 
Student: "Yes, I mean we are 
mature adults and don't need 
that kind of supervision. Of 
course I would no doubt attend 
church even if the rule was not 

Bietz: "You mean you would 
go to church even if the rule 
was not there?" 
Student: "Exactly, most of 
the time I would go anyway. 
What bugs me about it is that 
it is required. God's kingdom 
is not a kingdom of force! 

Of course, I would probably 
go anyway but the fact that it 
is required makes me want to 
show them that I can ditch out 
without them knowing." 
Bietz: "Well, if that is the 
case with you, why don't you 
just go ahead and ignore the 
rule that you are supposed to 
go to church." 

Student: "What do you mean 
ignore it?" 

Bietz:"Just what I said, that 

rule is not for you." 

Student: "You mean it does 

not apply to me?" 

Bietz: "That is right." 

Student: "Would you be 

willing to tell the dean that?" 

Bietz: "If you are going to go 

to church anyway I see no 

reason for me to tell the 


Student: "Well that is not the 

point. The rule does apply to 

me and it bugs me to think 

that I have to go." 

Bietz: "But you would go 

even if you weren't required 


Student: "Yes" 

Bietz: "Well then ignore the 

rule — it wasn't written for 


Student: "I don't like the 

extra restrictions." 

Bietz: "It is not a restriction 

for you — you would go

Bietz: "Dumb for you maybe. 

Let me illustrate it this way: 

Did you know that there is a 

law in this state that 1 can't 

beat my children or my 


Student: "I would assume 

that there was such a law." 

Bietz: "Well that law really 

bugs me. I. mean not that I 

would want to do it, you 

understand, but every morn- 
ing I wake up and there is that 
restriction hanging over me. I 
don't like extra restrictions."

that is the same is something 
the same, but it is the same 

Why should a rule that I 
should go to church bother me 
if 1 plan to go to church 

Student: "Well* I have this 
friend who really doesn't want 
to go to church. He says the 
Sabbath is a day of rest for 
him and he needs to get all the 
rest he can for the new week. 
Church just breaks into his 
rest. He doesn't believe 
religion should be forced." 
Bietz:"Well, let's make a 
distinction here — religion is 
not being forced — only church 

Student: "Same difference!" 
Bietz: "Not at all— there is a 
vast difference. What is being 
done is providing an opportun- 
ity for religion. The Lord can't

free choice — my friend should 

have free choice about church 


Bietz: "Would your friend put 

a fence around a cliff?" 

Student: "What do you 

Bietz: "If your friend had 
property with a cliff behind his 
home and let's say he also had 
a small child. Would he put a 
fence around the cliff to 
protect his child?" 
Student: "That is different— 
we are not small children!" 
Bietz: "True, but in the 
context of a Christian school 
established for Christian edu- 
cation freedom is earned and I 
don't think your friend has 
earned it."

treating us like babies."

treated like a baby. Like I said 
I would no doubt go to church 
even if they didn't have the

yours — why did he come to 
this school?" 

Student: "Come on, I know 
that argument! 'You chose to 
come here and knew the rules 
so if you don't like it go 
somewhere else."' 

Bietz: "That isa reasonable 
facsimile of the argument." 
Student: "Well that just 

Bietz: "Why not?" 
Student: "Just because I 
choose to come to this school, I 
mean just because my friend 
chooses to attend this school 
doesn't mean that he chooses 
to attend church." 
Bietz: "Didn't this friend of 
yours know the purpose of this 
school when he came here?' 
Student: "I suppose." 
Bietz: "Well he bought the 
package. The simple fact is 
that this school has the objec- 
tive of education of the whole 
man and an essential element 
in that education is redemp- 
tion. That involves religious 
services. The rule doesn't 
bother people like yourself 
who would come anyway, and 
the rule is only for those like 
your friend and it exposes him

How to accept others 

by David Mee Lee 
To accept someone in reality 
is genuinely, totally, and 
humbly to receive that person 
as he is; to resist the urge to 
control or manipulate hi.m; 
and to give him respect as a 
person, even when he may do 
something we don't agree 
; with. Acceptance implies the 
I willingness to listen to others 
when we would rather change 
them, and to respect their 
freedom of choice when we 

' would rather convince them to 
do it "our way." 
Think back to the last time a 

j person challenged your 
opinion. Recall the most 
recent disagreement you had 
with a relative or friend. 
Examine your attitude the last 
time there was a doctrinal 
disagreement in your Sabbath 
school class. How well did you 
accept the other person? 
One of Jesus' most com- 
manding qualities was His 
ability to accept people — and 
" changed lives. The woman 
at the well, a Samaritan five 
hmes divorced and at the time 
living with another man, 

i Ranted the "living water" 

1 ■ because Jesus accepted her as 

a person and talked to her (see 
John 4:5-42). 
The first step toward genuine 
acceptance of another is to 
know and accept yourself — to 
have self-respect. Do you 
know what you are capable of 
doing or not doing, or do you 
find yourself saying Yes when 
already you feel overex- 
tended? Do you keep chiding 
yourself for your failures and 
weaknesses instead of believ- 
ing that God really has accept- 
ed you and given you the right 
to become His son or 
daughter? (see John 1:12). 
Are you aware of your feel- 
ings so you can share them 
and resolve them quickly 
rather than have your emo- 
tions control you? Can you 
recognize when you are angry, 
anxious, happy, confused, or 
hurt? Can you accept and deal 
with that feeling constructive- 
ly? Denying the emotional 
part of yourself ends with 
tension headaches or ulcers, a 
chronic sense of dissatis- 
faction, and a schedule bor- 
dering on workaholism. 
The second step to accepting 
a person is to empathize with 

him — to participate in his 
feelings or ideas, to stand in 
his shoes. This will require 
genuine openness toward his 
opinions and feelings. This is 
also where the first step is 
important. It is much easier to 
understand another when we 
ourselves can remember what 
it is like to feel stressed, 
angry, or t happy. It is much 
easier to 'tolerate the failures 
of another when we recognize 
our own weaknesses. 
Because the Christian is 
aware of his sinfulness and 
God's acceptance and forgive- 
ness, he is willing and able to 
extend that acceptance and 
respect to another person. A 
verse in The Living Bible 
illustrates this well: ' 'And why 
worry about a speck in the eye 
of a brother when you have a 
board in your own? Should 
you say, 'Friend, let me help 
you get that speck out of your 
eye,' when you can't even see 
because of the board in your 
own? Hypocrite! First get rid 
of the board. Then you can 
see to help your brother" 
(Matt. 7:3-50. See the steps in 
this passage? First, know 

yourself, then seek to under- 
stand the needs of the other 

The third step in accepting 
another is sharing your feel- 
ings and concerns in a way the 
other person will understand. 
If your teen-age son comes 
home later than he should, it 
would not be effective to begin 
a health-education talk on the 
need of adequate rest or sleep. 
It might be more useful to say 
that you were afraid that 
something had gone wrong 
and that you needed to talk 
about it, either immediately or 
when you both cooled off. 

If another member of your 
church becomes threatened by 
a new idea for evangelism or a 
different theological under- 
standing, it would not be 
helpful to bombard him with 
elaborate explanations or 
proof texts. It might be more 
useful to explore your 
concerns together and let him 
know that you share his love of 
the church, as well as concern 
for truth. 

Communication involves 
more than simply declaring 
your feelings and opinions. It 

means willingness to discover 
and know the other person and 
to take time to exchange 
feelings and respect his 
Acceptance does not mean 
automatically agreeing with 
everything the other person 
says. As Christians claim the 
self-respect God offers 
through His acceptance and 

know we are His son or 
daughter, a part of the body of 
Christ. Christians want to 
discover their talents and 
assert themselves for who 
they are, not for who they 
think they should be someday. 

Imagine your church Filled 
with members practicing 
genuine empathy and 
communication with one 
another, their family mem- 
bers, and companions at work. 

What would be the impact, 
both inside and outside the ^^ 
church, for bridging genera- 'jp 
tion gaps, racial barriers, edu- 
cational differences, and 
the ultimate gap— separation 
from God!

Word processing— 
what is it? 

New classes added 

This new literature emphasizes the great trend in our society today to return to the simple life. 
Students are demanding that we get back to basics. ('SMC became 'SC so 'SDA' became 
'SA'— it's called equal opportunity). SC of SA will be offering many courses for the First time 
to persons who need them most — freshpersons. 

A sample of courses to be offered: 

FRSH 099 ORIENTATION 0.01 hour 

Required of all freshpersons and transfer students. 
Course will enable new students to find Wright Hall. 


Designed for those who need technical assistance in adjusting their TV & FM antennas, 
electronic watches, etc. to adequately cope with college life in these environs. Also for 
anybody with difficulty adjusting to four hours of sleep per night. 


This course cannot be Clepped. 

Prepares the uninitiated individual who has never seen water to take Beginning 
Swimming. Practicum commences with walking through a humid room and concludes with 
successfully navigating a kiddie pool filled at least two inches deep. Great self-confidence 

Since without air all else is for naught we teach you how to get an adequate supply of oxygen 
to all parts of the body. A major part of the course will be devoted to gyrating to modern 
imusic. Due to the very real possibility of failure, life insurance is required— payable to SC. 

For students with absolutely no previous training. To pass, students will be required to type 
"A" to "Z." Fifteen minute limit. 


Required of students with composite ACT scores of 4 or lower. 

Course objective: to bring all individuals to the grim realization that ABSOLUTELY 
NOTHING works. 


Though the name of the school has been changed, our function, 
not. Realizing the significance of matrimony on the individual's ci

Discrimination in any way, shape or form has been outlawed. (Title IX). (The generic term

Come to Southern College of Seventh Adventist where we welcome you with open arms. 

Ask most people what word 
processing is, and, more than 
likely, answers will be given 
such as "Doesn't it have 
something to do with secretar- 
ial work?" "Is it some type of 
computer?" or "I don't have 
the faintest idea." A rela- 
tively new field of business 
that only began in the early 
1960's, word processing is the 
use of computer technology to 
enter, edit, and prepare draft 
and Final output documents for 
an organization in the most 
efficient and economical way. 
Southern College's own Word 
Processing Center is doing 
just that! 
According to Mrs. Evonne 
Richards, Word Processing 
Director, "The Word Pro- 
cessing Center is now 
equipped to give very efficient 
and versatile service." This 
year's addition of a second 
computer terminal and last 
year's acquisition of a quality 
printer has enabled the 
department to more easily 
enter and store into the 
college's Hewlett-Packard 
3000 documents such as 
letters, book manuscripts, and 
resumes and then quickly 
reproduce them in excellent 
Located in Wright Hall and 
now in its fourth year of 
operation, the department 
actually began in the office of 
the academic dean when an 
IBM Mag Card typewriter was 
leased for use by the adminis- 
tration and in the training of 
secretarial students. It 

offered the feature of being 
able to correct mistakes by 
backspacing and striking over 
errors and the material being 
typed was automatically re- 
corded on magnetic cards. The 
material could then be printed 
error-free at speeds of 180 
words per minute. Although 
the Mag Card typewriter had 
unlimited external storage, 
the use of magnetic cards 
became rather expensive as 
usage increased, and the 
search began for new equip- 

According to Mrs. Richards, 
who was then secretary to the 
academic dean, Dr. Futcher, 
"The administration gave the 
go-ahead in 1979 to start a 
word processing center." The 
following year an Olivetti 401 
was rented to replace the IBM 
Mag Card typewriter, and a 
computer terminal was ob- 
tained. The Olivetti recorded 
on small discs, which made 
editing and revising much 
easier, could reproduce stored 
data at a rate of 350 words per 
minute, which was almost 
twice the speed of the IBM 
Mag Card, and could merge a 

list of information, such as 
addresses, with a particular 
document, such as a letter 
After the evaluation of many 
different types of word pro- 
cessing equipment and soft- 
ware packages by Mrs 
Richards and Mr. John 
Beckett, director of Computer 
Services, a Diablo quality 
printer was purchased last 
year, and because of contin- 
ued interest in evaluating 
word processing equipment, 
Mrs. Richards has chosen this 
area of research for her doc- 
toral dissertation. 
The Word Processing Center 
recent project was the 400- 
page Self-Study Report for 
Southern College that was 
done last year. Another 
project geared more for the 
faculty and students includes 
the printing of letters using 
different names and ad- 
dresses. Tests are also 
printed for teachers who have 
a test bank of questions on the 
computer. After the initial 
data entry, tests are run by 
selecting questions out of a 
master file, and an answer key 
is also printed automatically. 
The department has computer 
address files for all conference 
presidents, ministerial secre- 
taries, and educational secre- 
taries, in addition to a com- 
plete list of SC faculty, which 
can be used for letters, 
resumes, envelopes, and la- 
bels. Articles and book manu- 
scripts are also done by the 
department. One of the First 
such projects done by Word 
Processing during its first year 
of operation was the set of 
Sabbath School lessons 
written by Dr. Norman Gulley, 
Professor of Religion at SC, 
which will be available in 
January, 1983. Christ Our 
Substitute was later written on 
the same subject for use with 
the Sabbath School lessons. 
"The Word Processing 
Department was a lifesaver to 
me in terms of time," stated 
Dr. Gulley. "I've nothing but 
praise for the department, ana 
don't know how we ever 
operated without it." During 
the last four years, worn 
processing has also i yP etl 
large number of resumes 
students, and many have be 
excited about the complin*" 
received from prospect 
employers on their resumes- 

"The important thing is [h3|

Orlando update 

by Deanna Darbo 

Halloween has come and gone 
in Orlando, Florida. October 
30 saw several hundred Ad- 
ventists meet at Buster's Barn 
for the annual barn party. 
There was a sacred program to 
close the Sabbath and then a 
secular program followed with 
hot chocolate, apple cider, and 
doughnuts. Everyone was 
encouraged to bring an old 
blanket and come and have 
fun. It was a lively evening of 
singing, accompanied by gui- 
tars, banjos, and a fiddle. A 
few of the main entertainers 
were Steve Martin, David 
Rose, Rick Mace, and the 
Cress Trio. 
This week was Week of 
Prayer. Jim Herman spoke on 
the call of Abraham stressing 
that we, like Abraham, can do 

God's will and "know beyond 
a shadow of a doubt." He said 
that Abraham held to God's 
will and there is "no happier 
place to be than where God 
wants you to be." Many of 
the students enjoyed talking 
with Elder Herman after the 
meetings and during the day. 
November 7 held excitement 
for several nursing students. 
Mike Wykoff, the SA presi- 
dent for the Orlando campus, 
obtained tickets for the dinner 
theater "Once Upon A 
Stage." This was a formal 
evening with live entertain- 
ment presented by Rogers and 
Hammerstein's "The King 
and I," a play based on Anna 
and the King of Siam by 
Margaret Landis. A buffet 
dinner was also served. 

Christmas tree to be 

by E. O. Grundset 

As everyone has noticed, a 
beautiful tree was trans- 
planted in the center of the 
mall in front of Wright Hall. 
This was done about a year 
ago with the intent that it 
would serve as the yearly 
campus Christmas Tree. This 
it shall be; however, Mr. 
Lacey, grounds superinten- 
dent, and others feel that 
it is just a little too short to use 
this year, and that it needs 
some more time to oecome 
"established". So ... . this 
Friday a taller cedar tree will 
be brought in (from north of 
Ooltewah) and set up by the 
SC Engineering Dept. in the 
space adjacent to this smaller 
permanent tree. The lights 

will be strung and a star 
placed atop this temporary 
tree during the following Week 
so that all will be in readiness 
for the Tree Lighting Cere- 
monies on Tuesday, Nov. 30. 
This situation of having two 
trees will present a strange 
(possibly weird) sight when 
viewed from Wright Hall and 
will elicit various and sundry 
critical remarks no doubt— but 
so be it! Actually when 
viewed from Camp Road, the 
shopping center, the dorms 
and other vantage points the 
lighted tree will appear quite 
"normal". Let's just call this 
the two-tree Christmas. . . 
next year we'll begin using 
the permanent tree.

The Army Corps of Engi- 
neers and South Florida Water 
Management District have 
agreed to study the idea of 
restoring the natural water 
flow to the heavily diked 
Everglades, which has been 
imperiled by a change in 
wanterflow that has led to the 
death of 90 percent of the area

the key to saving the environ- 
mentally sensitive region is by 
returning it to a semblance of 
its original state. 

A plan favored by Jack 
Morehead, Everglades 

National Park Superintendent, 
hinges on continuing to 
restrict development in the 
eastern Everglades and calls 
for doubling the park's guar- 
anteed annual water supply 
which is 102 billion gallons a 

Before the advent of drain- 
age, the flood control, water 
flowed into the 5668-square- 
mile park across a 20-mile- 
wiflfe depression called Shark 

River Slough and the smaller 
Taylor Slough. Most of the 
water now enters through 
gates dotting an eight-mile 
stretch of canal along the 
Tamiami Trail (US 41). 
"The park must have water 
based more on natural 
events," said Morehead. 
"Any time of wet or flood or 
rain or drought, we can take 
that. That's the natural cycle. 
But the animals aren't adapt- 
ed to a man-made cycle." 

The Everglades problem 
stems from a decision years 
ago to alter the water flow to 
enable people to grow crops 
during droughts and keep dry 
during floods. 

But while the plan helped 
man, it hurt birds living in the 

Morehead said more than 90 
percent of the birds died, and 
fishermen in northeastern 
Florida Bay say the man-con- 
trolled flow change also upset 
marine life because the 
balance of fresh and salt water 

Also agreeing with the idea 
of restoring the Everglades to 
its natural water sheet flow is 

Johnny Jones, executive 
director of the Florida Wildlife 
Federation. "There isn't but 
one way to fix it. Put it back 
the way the good Lord made 

The drawing included in this 
article is the Everglades 

(snail) Kite, Rostrhamus 
sociabilis, which is only one of 
many species affected by the 
Water Management Act. it is 
so threatened as to be added 
to the endangered species list. 
The change of water flow 
affects the growth and repro- 

duction of the bird's only food 
supply, the Apple Snail. The 
last census shows the number 
of Snail Kites is very low 
compared to previous counts 
of its population. The 1982 
count revealed about 100 or sa 
birds remaining.

Never have I felt such pur- 
pose and meaning in life as 
when I came out to the mission 
field. Being here in Indonesia 
has brought me closer to Jesus 
in a very real and special way! 
Also I have felt a special 
closeness with my two Chris- 
tian brothers with me here in 
Bandung. Oh sure, 1 have 
experienced homesickness 
and culture shock, but through 
it all God has used these trials 
to bring me closer to Him. 
And yes, interesting things do 
happen to us. One day I 
almost fell through the ceiling 
trying to repair a leaky roof. 
My angel must have been on 
red alert because I didn't fall 
all the way through! Also, 
how would you like to live 100 
km. away from a volcano that 
erupts every week? One day 
ik Paul and 1 were covered with 
W volcanic ash as we rode 
through downtown Bandung. 
The sky reminded me of the 
Dark Day! The reason I like 
being here the best is because 
of my friendly students. I get 
excited seeing them respond 
in Bible class. This week we 
start our first series of evan- 
gelistic meetings. I'm excited 
about sharing the precious 
love of my Saviour.

When 1 first came to Indo-

scared of was the Bible studies 
I knew I would be teaching. 
Even though I've studied the

still don't know. Plus I've 
never had to explain it to 
someone else. When I had my 
first Bible class I can honestly

1 invited two of my students 
to spend the night at my 
apartment. Before we all 
ired for the night, I had a 

infinitely inade- 

quate. 1 know there must be 

teachers from another school long talk with them about 
came down and talked about God, who He is and how great 
how much they loved their He is. They were very 
Bible classes and what God interested and f could feel the 
was doing for them. By their Holy Spirit working on their 
example they showed some of hearts. They want to go to 
us that we really needed to church but they must work 
study our Bible more and and go to school. Please join 
us in prayer. We don't realize 
how privileged we are. 1 have 
field and still be alone really been enjoying my stay 
1 have picked three 

and without God. So I started 
studying, and it worked. I 
love my Bible classes now. I 
claimed the promise in Matt.

Godwill provide. He sure has 
blessed me by this text.

The Victors released 

Origins matter little to God. 
What is of consequence is the 
new birth and what one does 
with the God-given life. 
In The Victors, a new release 
from Pacific Press Publishing 
Association, Dr. Leslie Hard- 
inge traces the lives of 13 
Bible characters — both men 
and women — and shows how 
God helped them to triumph. 
They were mostly common 
folk and comparatively 
unimportant in their country, 
yet each became a victor 
through his consecration to 
Hardinge, president and 
dean of the Seventh-day 
Adventist seminary in the 
Philippines, demonstrates 
through the characters in this 
128-page book that position, 
fame or noble birth matter 
little to God. 
Possessing emotions, 

ambitions, sins and weak- 
nesses — the same as is found 
today— each was able to 

triumph through God and 
become a victor. 

"What God did in Bible 
times He can still do today, 
says Hardinge, a well-known 
teacher and pastor i» 
Adventist circles. 

This is the sixth publisM" 
work for Hardinge, who has 
been an employee of

years. Prior to his current

Requirements for M.Div. 
changed at Andrews 

Several changes have taken 
place in the last few months at 
the Seventh-day Adventist 
Theological Seminary 

(Andrews University. . Berrien 
Springs, Michigan), The 
Seminary is attended by stu- 
dents who have already 
completed a baccalaureate 
degree It offers programs 
leading to the Master of 
Divinity, the Master of 
Theology, the Doctor of Mini- 
stry and the Doctor of Philos- 
ophy in Religion (or Doctor of 
Theology) degrees. Out of 388 
students registered this year, 
more than 300 are in the 
Master of Divinity (M.Div.) 
program. This is the basic 
Seminary program intended to 
prepare ministers for the SDA 
Church in North America. 
The recent changes in admis- 
sion and tuition apply exclu- 
sively to the Master of Divinity 

Students who want to enter 
the M.Div. program must 
apply before February 28. 

Acceptances will be sent out 
not later than April 15. 
Application materials can be 
obtained by writing to the 
Office of Admissions. 
Andrews University, Berrien 
Springs, Michigan 49104 (Or 
calling, toll free, 800-253-2874 
[800-632-2248 in Michigan]). 

Classes for first-year stu- 
dents will begin in September, 
with the Fall quarter. How- 
ever, students who have a 
bachelor's degree but who 
have not taken all the required 
pre-Seminary courses, must 
attend the Summer quarter in 
order to clear their defi- 
ciencies before they can reg- 
ister for the M.Div. program 
in September. (Students can 
not begin their M.Div. pro- 
gram in the Winter or Spring 
quarters.) Information on 
pre-Seminary requirements 
can also be obtained from the 
Office of Admissions. The 
general GPA required for 
Seminary admission is 2.50. 

A recent decision of the 

General Conference changes 
the cost of tuition for M.Div 
students. Instead of paying 
$1,545 per quarter in tuition 
for a full load of 15 credits, the 
student pays only a quarterly 
registration fee of S27S. Each 
M.Div. student pays the 
same, whether the course load 
per quarter is 1 or 15 credits. 
The only limitation is that all 
credits have to be taken in the 
Seminary in the Master of 
Divinity program. 
Spouses of regular Seminary 
students (including doctoral 
students), who qualify aca- 
demically, will have the oppor- 
tunity, beginning with the 
Winter quarter of 1983, of 
taking up to nine hours of 
Seminary credit per quarter 
paying the nominal fee of only 
S15 per credit. Besides, all 
spouses of seminarians are 
encouraged to audit one class 
per quarter, at no cost. The 
only limitation in both 
instances is the availability of 
space in the classroom. 






Begin told a commission in- 
vestigating the September 
16th massacre of Palestinian 
refugees by Lebanese Chris- 
tian militiamen that he had no 
advance warning of the 
militia's entry into the Pales- 
tinian camps. When claimed 
that "nobody (in his cabinet) 
conceived of the danger of acts 
of atrocity," commission 
members produced cabinet 
meeting minutes with warn- 
ings (from Lt. General Eytan) 
ofapossible "breakout of acts 
of revenge" and Begin's own 
statement following the 
massacre in which he "was 
able to presume" that the 
Christian militia "would take 
revenge on the Moslems." 

began talks on Israeli troop 
withdrawals this week. The

The 1982 Flag football season 
came lo an end last week with 
Greve, Arias, Mixon, and 
Giebell all clinching division 
crowns. In A League Rick 
Greve's team suffered its only 
defeat of the season, to Durby 
in a game marked by inter- 
ceptions and great defensive 
plays. Durby managed to 
contain flashy Hank Green- 
wood for most of the game- 
possibly being the key to his 
success. However, Greve 
clinched first place Thursday 
night with a 31-6 victory over 

Both B League divisions 
came down to the wire with 
Mixon clinching first place in 

the East with a 33-13 win over 
King. Montiperto managed 
second and a 5-3 record by 
defeating Lonto 39-34. In the 
West division Giebell and 
Bryant met for the champion- 
ship, with Giebell emerging a 
one point 26-25 victor, giving 
himself first place and a half 
game lead over Dickerhoff. 
Beth Arias won the Women's 
League for the second year in 
a row completing the season 
with only one tie blemishing 
her record. She defeated

I received a rather long- 
distance call the other day. It 
was Mrs. Claus. "Nick has 
some pretty bad pre-Christ- 
mas blues this year," she 
said. "Can you come over and 
see what you can do?" 

In a little bit I was sauntering 
into the toy-strewn living room 
of Santa Claus' house. 
"Hey." I said, "I haven't 
seen you since you got sun- 
burned in Florida." 

He glared. 

"I heard you weren't in the 
spirit of things." 

"Humbug!" he grouched. 

"Aw, c'mon Nick, what's on 
your mind?" 

"I'll tell you what's on my 
mind!" he roared. "We're 3

I looked my old friend over,

that silly helmet. The beard 
was there, and so were the red 
cheeks, but he seemed — thin- 

"Hey! You lost weight!" 

"That's right," said Nick. 
"Forty pounds. I started 
watching that little weird guy,

"But Nick!" I gasped. 
"Santa can't be skinny!" 

"Well, too bad" he huffed.

Talge Hall basement evacuated 

An eviction notice was given 
to the basement residents of 
Talge Hall on Thursday, 
November 11, 1982, due to a 
"nit-picky" inspection made 
by the state fire marshall on 
Wednesday, according to Ted 
Evans, Dean of Men. All 20 
residents involved were to be 
moved out of their rooms 
completely by midnight or 
immediate action would be 
taken by the officials. 

The inspection, the first 
made by the state in nine 
years and by the Collegedale 
Fire Department in five years, 
was made soon after a com- 
plaint was received from 
someone that the building was 
not in accordance with fire 
codes and was hazardous.

such as the trash and laundry 
shoots. However, some of this 
is disclaimed by the deans and 
college administration as 
being false. The hallway was 
measured by one of the deans 
and was said to be 260 feet 
long. The bulbs in the exit 
signs had merely burnt out 
and were in the process of 
being changed. "We are 
constantly changing the

the Holiday Banquet. 

The Student Association held 
it's annual Holiday Banquet 
on November 14 at the Fairy- 
land Club atop Lookout Moun-

attended the festivities. 
While waiting for the dinner 
and program to start, couples 
wandered through the elegant 
club, enjoying cold drinks and 
a breath-taking view of Chat- 
tanooga at night. When the 
program began, Patti Stone 
welcomed the guests and 
thanked various people and 
the social committee for all its 
hard work. Glen McElroy, a 
major person involved with 
the decorations, offered the 
blessing. The dinner began 
with salad and rolls, then 
continued with baked potato, 
mushroom and spinach

Sandra Schiau sang "What 

Child Is This?" accompanied 
by a string quartet. Mark 
Humeniuk and Joanna Powell 
sang a duet of the popular 
song "Up Where We 
Belong". Dana Reed put 
everything into his version of 
"Just Once". Mike McClung 
and David Butler played an 
instrumental selection, "Time

A film, based on the classic 
novel "Wuthering Heights", 
and starring Lawrence Olivier,

program," one student 
commented. Another added, 
"It was one of the best 
banquets I've ever been to." 
Many of the participants 
agreed with one SC student 
who stated, "1 wish they had

~ All things work together 
for good --even. love 

My dearest. 
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, 
to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved 
thoroughly and exclusively. But God, to a Christian, says no, 
not until you are satisfied and fulfilled and content with being 
loved by me alone, with giving yourself totally and 
unreservedly to me to have an intensely personal and unique 
relationship with me alone. I love you my child, and until you 
discover that only in me is your satisfaction to be found, you 
will not be capable of the perfect human relationship that I 
have planned for you. You will never be united with another 
until you are united with me — exclusive of any other desires 
or longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and 
allow me to give you the most thrilling plan existing — one 
that you cannot imagine. I want you to have the best. Please 
allow me to bring it to you. You keep watching me, expecting 
the greatest things. Keep that satisfaction knowing that I 
AM. Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you and 
you must wait. Don't be anxious and don't worry. Don't look 
around at the things others have gotten or that I have given 
them. Don't look at the things you think you want. Just keep 
looking off and away up to me or you'll miss what I have to 
show you. And then, when you're ready, I'll surprise you 
with a love far more wonderful than you would ever dream. 
You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you 
is ready, (I'm working right this minute to have both of you 
ready at the same time) and until you are both satisfied 
exclusively with me and the life I have prepared for you, you 
won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your 
relationship with me, and this is the greatest and most 
perfect LOVE. 

And my dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful 
love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your 
relationship with me and enjoy materially and concretely the 
everlasting union of beauty and perfection and love that I 
offer you with myself. I love you utterly. I AM God 

Your Heavenly Father

Everyone knows a roach is a roach is a roach. Right? Wrong! Here on the campus of SC 
(SMC for goodness sake!) we have a mean variety of the little buggers, so to keep our readers 
well informed we present THE STUDENT'S GUIDE TO ROACHES AT SC. 

Furstus, we have the American kind that is atypical of this area. (Periplaneta americana 
tennessea southerna collegedalia missionaria taiga dormitoria). Raccoon coat, SC pennant 
and old brown suitcase are standard. 

Second, like, is the Brown-Banded type, (supella supelletilium Iibraria). [490.540 ROAC] 
Found among the bookshelves and carrols of the library, "digesting" knowledge. 

Third wise, we have the German variety, (Blattella germanica cafeteria). Habitats: The cafe, 
snackbar and CK. 

And in fourth and fifth place we have a couple of roaches to keep our foreign students happy. 
The Oriental and Mexican roach, (Blatta orientalis imparta froma asia and Blatta mexicana que 
coma juevas rancheros). 

I have even heard of one roach from our Ingles brotherland Australia, (Periplaneta 
australasiae downa undera). But a roach by any other name is still a roach. Right? Right! 


Dear Editor: 

In response to your editorial 
of last week, "The College- 
dale Syndrome," I feel com- 
pelled to reply. Several 
statements you made were 
erroneous and you have 
labeled me as "disgruntled" 
which is not good journalism 

I mentioned no one by name 
in my letter (an example which 
you chose to ignore) and only 
suggested some possible 
alternatives to a paradoxical 
situation existing on campus. 
I did not pass judgment on 
anyone and did not condemn 
anyone in my letter. Rather I 
pointed out a problem and 
some possible solutions. 

Your editorial, however, was 
written on a somewhat lower 
level. Even though the basic 
thrust of your editorial seemed 
to be speaking out against the 
exaggeration of reports and 
spreading of gossip in Col- 
legedale, you chose to men- 
tion me by name twice (in- 
stead of merely referring to 
my letter) and even chose to 
call me "disgruntled," not a 
complimentary term in any 

This type of labeling might 
be expected some place else 
but ,t ,s not the best policy td 

follow here at SC. May I 
suggest The Christian As A 
Journalist by Richard T. Baker 
as a primer to developing 
sound journalism ethics? 

Secondly, I did not say that 
SAC's food service system 
was superior to that of SC. I 
only mentioned their method 
of handling the Sabbath meal 
situation as one possible solu- 
tion to the problem. This is 
the way that it was done at 
SAC only two years ago when I 
was there. Also, I have talked 
to students from other col- 
leges, and I understand that it 
is also done this way at Walla 

The fact that you "enjoyed 
many hot Sabbath meals" 
while at SAC (when?) only 
adds to my argument that if so 
many community folks did not 
eat at the cafeteria on Sab- 
bath, and in fact invited a 
student to their home for 
Sabbath dinner, it would help 
the situation greatly. 

I expected the type of letters 
that responded to mine, which 
exhibited a lack of thorough 
reading and understanding of 
my letter and for that reason 
deserve no response. I did not 

however, expect the unethical 
and unprofessional labeling, 
innuendos, and exaggerations 
(the Collegedale Syndrome!) | 
of my letter which were in- 
cluded in your editorial. 
Certainly a student can ] 
expect other students and 
possibly even former employ- 
ees and wives of faculty 
members to disagree with a 
stand he has taken or .opinio"- 
on .just about any subject 
However, when a smie"

Student Aid Dept. works 
to y k£epstudents in school 

rt i h a sharp pencil and a 

.luirp mind, .he staff of the 
Student Aid Department can 
whip up a remedy for your 
financial woes. Laurel Wells, 
director of Student Aid. was 
once a struggling student 

Mrs. Wells says that she 
understands the needs of stu- 
dents and if students have any 
financial worries or problems, 
they should come by and talk 
with her. Mrs. Wells feels 
that many students who are 
confused and worried over 
their money situation just sit 
around in their room and 
contemplate packing up and 
leaving school. The aid office 
is sincere in trying to help 
students cope with their edu- 
cation experience at Southern 
College. They are actively 
involved in lobbying for more 
federal aid for students. 

The Student Finance Office 
went out on a limb for those 
eligible for aid this past 
summer by sending award 
letters without actually being 
sure of what the federal 


as going to be. As 
lurnedout, they were within 
comfortable SI. 700 of last 
ar's funding. There were, 

as we heard, cutbacks in 
federal aid. But recently, an 
additional amount has come to 
the college for those who are 
eligible for a federal grant up 
to a maximum 51,674 for this 
year. It will then be increased 
to $1,800. which was last 
year's figure. 

Our college has a good record 
of students paying back their 
federal loans. Mrs. Wells 
warns that those who are 
either delinquent or default on 
one of these loans to beware. 
The government is really go- 
ing after them. Surprisingly, 
the federal government is 
putting fire under 3,900 of its 
own employees within the 
Office of Education who are 
themselves delinquent or 
default on their federal loans. 

When it comes to campus 
jobs next year, the Student 
Aid Office is hoping to classify 
campus jobs with different pay 
scales according to individual 
students' skills. Of jobs here 
on campus, Mrs. Wells said 
that the desk jobs are the most 
sought after by work-study 

Laurel Wells 

most trouble in holding col 

us is because lege help is the Service De 

study in their partment. This is under 7

The department that has the toilets is not a very appealing 

job. Fortunately, we have tf

help out in this area. 

Anderson presents Gospel of John 

by Dick Bird 

"I think the King James 
Version of the Bible is the 
greatest Book in the world," 
said British actor John Stuart 
Anderson, following his per- 
formance in the Collegedale 
church last Friday evening. 

A solo actor, Anderson has 
performed his interpretation 
of the Gospel of John for the 
past 15 years, having 
appeared in churches and 
theaters in the United States 
and England. 

In a time when modern 
translations are becoming 
popular, Anderson finds the 
King James Version superior. 
"I view the Bible much like I 
do music," said Anderson. 
"The King James is an origi- 
nal. Every other one is an 

When asked if he was famil- 
iar with the New King James 
translation, Anderson retorted 

"I'm aware of it, and like 
Ernest Angley in the Read- 
er's Digest Bible, I would 
willingly burn it.*' Anderson 
has, upon request, performed 
from the Living Bible, which 
he likes, but made no bones 
about his preference. 
Anderson's performances 
have, at times, been criticized 
for a lack of spirituality. In 
defense, he replied, "You look 
at the Gospel of John and 
show me where the spiritual 
. Jesus is being very 
■ earth and telling 
here to get off." He 
o say that he is not a

Anderson is more 
concerned with the perfor- 
mance than with theological 

Though he has performed 
from the Bible for many years, 

parts ar 

went on 

Anderson still enjoys reading 
it for his personal pleasure. 
"You cannot read from the 
Bible as long as 1 have without 
having it touch you in some 
way," said the well-known 
orator. He also expressed a 
sound satisfaction in the style 
of the scriptures. 
When asked if he offered any 
advice to aspiring actors, 
Anderson offered the follow- 
ing remarks: "Plan your 
career very carefully. Don't 
think you necessarily need to 
go to New York or L.A. If 
you're really serious, start a 
program here in Chattanooga, 

and just do it." 

Anderson spoke highly of 
Southern College and its stu- 
dents and hopes to visit again. 
He was particularly fond of 
radio station WSMC, because 
of its selections in classical 
music. When asked about the 
cafeteria food, Anderson 
recalled his confusing a fish 
patty for a slice of burned 
toast. He was, however, 
pleasantly surprised on one 
occasion. "I had a glass of 
some type of muddy water," 
recalled Anderson, "it tasted 
of apples and was very nice."

Contemporary Christian music — is it good? 




I think that first, contem- 
porary Christian music must 
be defined before I do any 
writing about the subject. 
Contemporary Christian 

music is nothing more than 
new Christian music. That 
includes not only "Jesus 
Rock" but the new little songs 
you hear in Cradle Roll. I 
don't know any of us who have 
any trouble accepting the little 
songs you hear in Cradle Roll 
but when you start adding a 
guitar and drums it gets a 
little harder for us to accept 
the music as appropriate for 
Christians to listen to. Let's 
look at "Jesus Rock". Most of 

the songs are testimonies and 
the rest are straight out praise 
to God. Now I don't expect 
someone's grandmother to 
enjoy "Jesus Rock" but a 
Christian who is used to 
hearing Rock 'n' Roll will 
understand the message in the 
song. Furthermore, I have 

never been to a contemporary 
Christian concert where some- 
body didn't give his or her 
heart to the Lord. In closing, I 
just want to' say, a match can 
burn your finger or light your 
fire. A style of music can be 
used to burn your soul or light 
a fire in you for God. 


(cont. from page 1) 
an additon. 

The major questions being 
asked the fire officials by the 
deans and the college 
administrations, how is it that 
after all these years, Talge 
Hall is suddenly found hazard- 
ous enough to justify locking 
up the doors of the whole 
building, as threatened by the 
fire marshall, and why was the 
college not informed of the 
changes that had to be made? 
The Collegedale Fire Depart- 
ment Chief, Duayne Pitts, 
answered that it was ' 'because 
of the consequences of loss of 
life" that the edict was 
served. "Our number one 
priority is to get rid of life 
hazards, to eliminate anything 
that could cause loss of life." 
He also stated that "some 
time ago an inspection was 
made and deficiencies were 
cited" to the college which 
were never corrected. 
Although Dean Evans was 
not the head dean at the time 
the last inspection was made, 
he stated, "I've never once 
seen any report on the things 
that had to be done. There 
has been no communication 
with them whatsoever." He 
also commented, "Inspections 
just aren't made on a regular 
basis, and if they're really 
concerned about a loss of life, 
why aren't regular checks 
made? Chief Pitt's suggestion 
that we move the fellows into 
Jones Hall was certainly not in 
accordance with that concern. 
Although there's a sprinkler 
system, it's a fire trap." Dean 
Evans also brought up the 
question as to why officials 
weren't more concerned with 
'- ,lher colleges, one thai he 
knew of in particular, that 
really did have buildings badly 

in need of improvement. 

Chief Pitts explained that in 
the whole state of Tennessee, 
there are only 14 people to 
inspect every elementary 
school, high school, and 
college, public or private, and 
although inspections are 
supposed to be made every 
year, there aren't enough 
people to make it possible. 
"In actuality, any building 
being inspected, if going by 
the strict letter of the fire law, 
would flunk in one part or 
another." In response to why 
Southern College was sudden- 
ly hit with an inspection, he 
stated, "When a complaint is 
received, it has priority over 
all else." 

The college, however, plans 
to check which codes apply, 
what should be done in terms 
of safety, and according to Dr. 
Knittle, will possibly "get the 
legal people on it." 

The Evictees were assigned | 
to room with resident assist- 
ants and other Talge residents 
who previously had rooms to 
themselves. "Unfortunately, 
this will have to stay on a 
semi-permanent basis," stat- 
ed Dean Evans. The require- 
ment that the basement have a 
sprinkler system with an 
independent water supply 
from the rest of the building 
and the requirement that a fire 
exit door be made from the 
center of the building is just 
too impractical for the college 
to consider at this time. 

Earl Johnson, one of the 
basement residents who was 
displaced, commented "It 
created a hassle, the process 
<Jt moving and everything," 
out Rex Johnson appropriately 
expressed the feeling of most 
involved when he said "It 

How good it is that God above 

has never gone on strike. 
Because He was not treated 

fair in things He didn't like. 
If only once He'd given up and 

said, "That's it, I'm through! 
"I've had enough of those on 

Earth, so this is what I'll do: 
"I'll give my orders to the sun 

-cut off the heat supply! 
"And to the moon - give no 

more light, and run the

really tough and put the 

pressure on, 
"Turn off the vital oxygen till 

every breath is gone!" 
You know. He would be 

justified, if fairness was the 

For no one has been more 

abused or met with more 

Than God, and yet He carries

With all the favor of His grace, 

and everything for free. 
Men say they want a better 

deal, and so on strike they 

But what a deal \ 

We don't care whom we hur 

to gain the things we like; 
But what a mess we'd all 'b< 
in, if God should go on strike. 

First of all, let me explain 
precisely to what I will be 
addressing this article. I am 
writing with Christian rock in 
mind. My definition of Christ- 
ian rock is any Christian music 
which, were secular words to 
be substituted for the original 
religious ones, would not be 
out of place on any radio 
station such as KZ-106. Two 
things which characterize the 
music to which I am referring 
are a heavy beat and unintel- 
ligible words. I am not 
speaking of the contemporary 
Christian music performed by 
groups such as Harvest 
Celebration and Heritage 

Christian Rock, to me is no 
more than secular music with 
Christian words to it — words 
that can hardly be understood 
anyway. All rock music seems 
to rely more on beat and 
volume than lyrics to convey 
emotions, since the words are 
either shrieked into distortion, 
covered up by the beat, or 
repeated so many times that 
they lose their significance. 
They become just another 
rhythm instrument to add to 
the mood. Since the words 
take second place in this type 
of music, it is obvious that the 
"Christian" in Christian rock 
is taking second place to the 
"rock"— that is, the music is 
going to have more effect on 
the listener than are the 

It is a fairly well accepted fact 
f not all rock 

contains a certain element of 
spintuahsm or sexual connota- 
ions or both, in the lyrics and 
the music itself. The music 
sets the mood for the lyrics to 
be accepted while Christian 
rock eliminates spiritualistic 
and suggestive lyrics. The 
rhythm and orchestration is 
still present, creating the 
same mood and evoking the 
same emotions and impulses 
that it would if it accompanied 
spiritualistic and/or sugges- 
tive words. Doesn't it seem a I 
bit sacreligious to combine the 
devil's music with Christian I 
words? It seems to be a clever 
game the devil is playing— 
disguising rock music, one of I 
his very effective tools, with ] 
the name of Christianity to J 
make it appear acceptable. In ' 
this way he can draw people 
into the trap of listening to 
that type of music, and once 
they are addicted to the feel- i 
ing it gives them it is very easy | 
for them to listen to the real 
thing. This same principle 1 
also works in reverse— a 1 
person who is trying to get "j 
away from rock music will f 
listen to Christian rock instead 1 
of making a completes tran- 
sition away from rock. 

Probably the one thing about I 
Christian rock that turns my ] 
stomach the most is that it is j 
one of the world's biggest j 
cop-outs, used by people who J 
are too wishy-washy to make a 
decision either way, who pre- \ 
fer instead to straddle the 
fence between Christ and 
Satan, having as it were, the 
best of both worlds. Christian j 
rock, is not the answer. You 
need to be decisive, if y« u *" ] 
going to listen to rock, listen to 

it with appropriate wot 
and if you want religious 
words, listen to them » 
appropriate music-but ma*' 
to decide, and if your choiC 
Christian rock, your decision 
is not for Christ. 


November 18, 1982/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 


Pastor Gordon Bietz 

Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest there came up the 
discussion of forest behavior 
relative to. .well it is a rather 
embarrassing subject to write 
about but it seems that many 
of the animals were ignoring 
the impact of their actions in 
j public. They were, well, 
es were getting too friend- 
ly in public to the embarrass- 
ment of other members of the 
forest community. 

There was a general meeting 
held of all the animals and 
they discussed this problem. 
Wise Old Owl called the 

leeting to order and sought to 
have all the members of the 
Fenton Forest community 
e to some kind' of agree- 
ment as to what was appro- 
priate public behavior 
/een boys and girls and 
what was not appropriate. 

Eventually there was general 
agreement among most of the 
animals that some restraint 
needed to be used for what 
went on in public. It was 
agreed that some behavior 
between two friends should be 

only between them and should 
be kept private. Everyone 
agreed, that is, everyone 
except Freddy Fox and 
Sammy Skunk. They thought 
it was not anyone else's 
business what they did or did 
not do in public and they left 
the meeting in a huff. And, of 
course, anytime that Sammy 
Skunk left a meeting in a huff 
everyone knew it. (It might be 
more appropriately put that he 
left the meeting in a puff.) 

The animals who remained 
all indicated that they would 
seek to live by this new 
consensus and they all left the 
meeting in good spirits. All 
went well for a time and 
everyone seemed to be happy. 
But one thing that bothered 
many of the animals was that 
they could not get Freddy the 
Fox or Sammy the Skunk to 

Freddy, who had been one of 
the worst offenders, did try at 
first to be more careful. He 
and his girlfriend tried to be 
more private and no one was 
embarrassed by his behavior 

for a number of months. 

But Sammy was so upset at 
the community intrusion into 
what he considered was his 
private behavior that he made 
a big stink about it. And when 
Sammy and Petunia (that was 
his girlfriend's name) decided 
to make a big stink they could 
really do it. They paid no 
attention to the sensibilities of 
other members in the Fenton 
Forest family and in fact there 
were some who thought that 
they went out of their way to 
offend others. 

It became so repulsive to the 
forest family, and especially to 
visitors who did not live in the 
forest, that no longer did the 
issue concern general 
behavior between animals in 
the forest. The issue was now 
Sammy and Petunia 


Wise Old Owl found it 
necessary to call another 
meeting of all of the Fenton 
Forest inhabitants to discuss 
Sammy and Petunia's 
behavior. Well they boycotted 
the meeting. Most of the 

other animals were just" as 
glad that they did for they 
didn't think that they could 
have stood to be around the 
two of them when they were in 
one of those moods. 

In the meeting they 
discussed at length what to do 
about Sammy's behavior. 
Many ideas were suggested. 
Gruff, the bear, said, "Just 
give me permission and I will 
take care of it." But he said it 
in such a way that the other 
animals, thought he might do 
harm to Sammy and most of 
them thought that that was a 
bit drastic. 

Lighffoot, the deer, had the 
idea to shame Sammy and 
Petunia into stopping their 
inappropiate behavior. He 
said, "Everytime that Sammy 
and Petunia are observed in 
some public behavior that 
does not show good judge- 
ment lets all gather around 
and watch." "Do you have 
any idea," replied Randy 
Raccoon, "how far away you 
have to be from Sammy when 
he is angry?" Everyone 

agreed that, though it sound- 
ed like a good idea, in this 
case it would not work, for 
Sammy and Petunia just had 
no shame and when they got 
angry. ..whew! 
Other ideas were discussed, 
but aside from jail and 
excommunication from the 
forest, most of the ideas were 
either not enforceable, or they 
were just too severe to fit the 
crime. It became apparent in 
the discussion that there were 
some things in social behavior 
that were just assumed by 
most well bred folks and it was 
hard to convince some like 
Sammy and Petunia that there 
were some things that were 
just not in good taste. 

Finally Wise Old Owl 
summed up their meeting and 
discussion. He said, "You 
simply have to remember, 
some residents of our 
community are just a bunch of

Accomplished leaders do not 
fall from the skies, (key are 
raised up only in the course of 
the struggle. 

-Joseph Stalin 

In 1964, Leonid Ilyich 
Brezhnev rose up seemingly 
from nowhere to eventually 
become the unchallenged 
ruler of one of the two most 
powerful nations on earth. As 
the Stalin quote indicates, 
however, leaders of 

Brezhnev's caliber don't just 
"fall from the skies." Where 
then, did Brezhnev acquire 
the instinct for survival 
needed to cross the "obstacle- 
strewn path to power?" Ac- 
cording to Brezhnev: "My 
own perception of life was 
shaped largely by the thought 
and aspirations of the working 
," and by "an historical 
event of immense signifi- 
:ance," the Russian Revolu- 

That Brezhnev's life "was 
shaped largely by the 
houghts and aspirations of 

ihe workingman" is beyond 
question. There had been 
steel workers in his father's 
family going back through 
four generations. 

The importance of the Revo- 
lution and the bloody civil war 
which followed are equally 
undeniable. When the Revo- 
lution came in November, 
1917, Brezhnev was a medi- 
ocre student at the elite 
Czarist gymnasium in the 
Ukranian town of Kamen- 
skoye. As 1917 drew to a 
close, Soviet forces occupied 
Kamenskoye and executed 
approximately 1.7 million 
intellectual, religious, and 
middle-class leaders. 

The executions ended tempo- 
rarily in February when Aus- 
trian troops occupied Kamen- 
skoye, but the civil war began 
in earnest when they left after 
Austria surrendered to the 
Allies in November. 

From November, 1918 until 
January 1920, Kamenskoye 
became a battleground not 
only for Royalist White and 
Soviet Red armies, but for the 
povstantsy (peasant gangs) as 
well, who would regularly 
enter the town, looting and 
killing until the Red Army 
was finally able to defeat 

Although many neighbors 
perished, the Brezhnevs sur- 
vived this ordeal. Their 
troubles weren't over, though. 

The war and a severe drought 
gave them famine and disease 
to contend with. 

Three million Ukrainians 
died from various diseases, 
including 30 of Brezhnev's 44 
classmates. Brezhnev became 
seriously ill himself but sur- 
vived. As one biographer 
noted, these experiences 
helped Brezhnev develop the 
"profound instinct for self- 
preservation" that served him 
so well in later years. 

Brezhnev joined a Commun- 
ist youth group in 1923, and 
was picked to go to an 
agricultural school. After 
graduation in 1927, he began 
working in Stalin's infamous 
"collectivization" program 
which resulted in the deaths of 
over 20 million Soviet peas- 
ants. His loyalty to Stalin paid 
off in a promotion to head the 
local Land Department. He 
joined the Communist party in 

Thus Brezhnev began the 
long, arduous climb to the top 
of the Soviet political machine. 
His role as a political officer in 
World War II brought him to 
Stalin's attention'^nd, in 1952. 
he was elevated to the ruling j^fc 
national Politburo. By 1964 he '^ 
was in position, as one of 
Nikita Khrushchev's relatively 
unknown and "[rusted" 
aides, to overthrow Khruschev 
and assume joint leadership

r) Great moments 


One semester at Southern College has slipped by in record 

time. The hustle and bustle of our everyday lives seems to 

make time fly. Yet, for some people, time became an enemy. 

Each moment seemed to be filled with heartache and pain. 
Each day seemed to bring fresh wounds from dagger-like 
tongues. Even though attacks against people connected with 
the college and the church have decreased, vicious rumors 
stilJ fly--a pastor is a heretic, a conference president will be 
forced to resign, two couples have swapped wives during 

People seem to forget the pain they can inflict. They forget 
that the stories they hear at the beauty parlor or the barber 
shop or over the phone lines can be totally false or, at best, 
greatly exaggerated. 

Or they forget that some things are better left unsaid--that 
no juicy news may just be good news. 

At this point, lean hear some of the^ccenr's readers asking 
why the editor is rehashing a topic discussed in a previous 
editorial, "The Collegedale Syndrome.*' It is because the 
time has come for a change. It is the time for "great 
moments"— a time when people reflect on the good instead 
of the bad. It is the time to offer a helping hand instead of 
the knockout punch. 

During this holiday season and throughout the coming new 
year, reflect on the "great moments" instead of the bad. A 
person once said that "life is not measured in days but in 
memories." Let's make those memories worth recalling.

Santa visits Christmas concert 

Dear Editor, 

It was just this last spring as I 
remember. On a visit to the 
Oral Roberts University 
campus I was blessed to 
attend a gospel concert given 
by Jamie Owens-Collins and 
the group Glad. The opening 
number by Glad intrigued me. 
The lead singer started by 
commenting that some con- 
servative Christians of the day 
condemned Glad's type of 
music. While he was talking 
he started to play a song - 
'■We Gather Together. 
He said, "Back in the 1800's 
people wrote songs to the 
tunes they were familiar with 
(as his sample song was). It 
just so happened that the 
tunes were old tavern tunes to 
drink by." In the few minutes 
that followed, Glad played 

variations of the song from the 
roaring twenties, from the 
early rock era and the Beach 
Boys. They finally ended the 
medley in the theme of today': 
popular music (Not that I 
enjoyed that. ) 
Glad's philosophy was to 
meet God's children on their 
level and bring them to know 
Christ in the things they love. 
But check it out for yourself. 
Isn't it the Devil who is going 
to trap "even the verv elect" 
by mixing truth with error as 
he started long ago? Contem- 
porary music in any form may 
or may not be your thing. And 
check again - is Jesus your 
music (as a contemporary 
song says), or is Jesus Christ 
your God and Saviour?

The Concert Band of 
Southern College, with direc- 
tor Pat Silver, presented its 
annual Christmas concert last 
Saturday evening. With Mas- 
ter of Ceremonies Clyde Garey 
announcing the program, the 
band began the concert by 

playing a medley of "Do You 
Hear What I Hear?" and 
"Snow Bells." 

The audience seemed to 
enjoy the Russian Christmas 
Music, which was ancient 
Russian carols derived from 
liturgical music of the Eastern 
Orthodox Church. The basis 
for this musical impression 
was of Old Russia during the 
jubilant Christmas season. 

Die Meistersinger high- 
lighted the evening by singing 
"Have Yourself a Merry Little 

Christmas." One student 
remarked that it really re- 
minded, her of home when 
they sang "Home for the 

The traditional Christmas 
poem "Twas the Night Before 
Christmas" was told in a 
not-so-traditional way by 
Clyde Garey, along with Dick 
Dower's multi-media presen- 
tation. The slides to illustrate 
the story were crayon draw- 
ings by fourth graders at Ruth 
Murdock Elementary School 
near Andrews University. 

The audience was given a 
chance to perform as they 
joined the band in a sing-a- 
long led by Dr. Don Runyan. 
Some all-time favorites such 
as "Hark the Herald Angels 
Sing," "Joy to the World," 

and "We Wish You a Merry 
Christmas" were sung. 

The spirit of Christmas was 
truly felt as Santa and his 
elves made their appearance 
during "Jingle Bell Rock." 
Santa gave Mr. Gilbert a pair 
of red gloves for the orches- 
tra's trip to Russia and also a 
red bucket for the cars they 
would have to wash to get 
there. Pat Silver's gift from 
Santa was a bag of grits, re- 
acclimating her in true South- 
ern hospitality. As Santa left, 
his elves threw candy to all, 
wishing all a very Merry 

The band concluded with a 
medley of Christmas songs 
performed with the Southern 
College Chorale. 

The Stingiest Man in Town 

by Tony Newsome 

presenled in Southern 
College's Ackerman Audi- 
torium. The play was entitled 
"The Stingiest Man in Town" 
and showed on Tuesday at 
7:30 and 9:30 p.m. and Wed- 
nesday at 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. 
The play was based on 

I Charles Dicken's "A Christ- 
mas Carol" and was a presen- 

I 'ation of the Southern College 
Division of Music. Don C. 
Runyan directed the play. 
Among the twenty-seven 
characters who made up the 
cast were "Old Scrooge" (por- 
trayed by Scott Aycock), and 

Tiny Tim (played by Tre 
Thompson). The musical play 
also featured the Southern 
College Chorale and the Col- 
legedale Caroliers. 
The play, which required 
over three weeks of rehearsal 
before showing, made use of 
special effects including the 
graveyard scene. Dry ice was 
used to cover the floor with a 
misty fog which rolled off the 
stage and onto the feet of the 
audience. This was the scene 
in which Scrooge saw his own 
tombstone. The play was 
greeted with rounds ol 
enthusiastic applause

Students tour Big Apple 


by Maureen Mayden 
A Thanksgiving vacation 
annual event for Art, Behav- 
ioral Science, and Education 
students is the trip to New 
York City. A total of 65 
students, and three faculty 
members with their families, 
took the 870-mile trip to the 
Big Apple, making it the 
largest group ever from the 
college to visit the city. 
Beginning with rain on a 
Saturday night, the two buses 
traveled through the night to 
reach Washington, D.C. 
around 6:00 a.m. The entire 
group went to Arlington 
National Cemetery to view the 
changing of the guard at the 
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, 
and to see Kennedy's grave 
with its eternal flame. 
The Art class then went to 
the Hirshhorn Museum of Art 
for a tour and lecture on part 
of the permanent collection 
housed there. This museum 
has many sculptures and 
paintings in its collection. 
Some of these include pop-art 
by Andy Warhol and George 

the students were allowed to 
visit the Smithsonian and the 
Natural History Museums 
along the National Mall. The 
sight-seeing was cut short due 
to an appointment in Phila- 
delphia to visit the Liberty Bell 
and Freedom Hall. 
Then, it was New York Cityl ! 
The group arrived at the 
Vanderbilt YMCA in plenty of 
time to walk around the 
neighborhood and eat supper. 
Some of the students, includ- 
ing Steve Schmidt, Gary 
Muncy, and Danny DuBose 
toured 42nd Street and then, 
returning to the Y, met one of 
New York's finest who gave 

them some free advice about 
the wisdom of 42nd Street 
after dark! 
A few of the requirements for 
the Behavioral Science stu- 
dents included the Immigra- 
tion Museum. China Town, 
and Teen Challenge. They 
were also required to visit the 
Covenant House. Hale House, 
and Harlem and the Bronx. 
Some of these students 
included Diana Johnson, Scott 
Kinsey. J.T. Shim, and Bev 
The Art class visited several 
museums, including the 
Museum of Modern Art, 
which was undergoing 
remodeling at the time and did 
not have much of its per- 
manent collection out. Fea- 
tured was a show by Louise 
Bourgeous, which included 
several sculptures, as well as 
The Cloisters, part of the 
Metropolitan Museum, was an 
interesting museum. It houses 
the Unicom Tapestries and 
many other medieval sculp- 
tures, tapestries, and portions 

Bridget Knox and David Dick 
enjoyed this museum quite a 
On display at the Whitney 
Museum was an exhibit by 
Milton Avery, who is a con- 
temporary artist. He deals 
mostly in shapes without 
specific details, such as facial 
The Metropolitan Museum 
was a favorite of many stu- 
dents including Jeff Kuhlman. 
Their permanent collection 
was endless and included 
many paintings of the Im- 
pressionist artists, including 
Monet, Manet, Suerat, and 
Cezanne. They were also 

featuring an exhibit about 
Alexander the Great and the 
search for his treasures. 
Another favorite of some of 
the students was the Frick 
Collection. Housed in a 
mansion, it is a personal 
collection of Henry Clay Fnck, 
who left the entire mansion 
and art objects as a museum 
after his death. 

Featured at the Solomon R. 
Guggenheim was an exhibit 
by Yves Klein, who invented 
new colors and used innovat- 
ing techniques, such as blow 
torches and female nudes as 
paint brushes. 

The Education students 
visited the Academy for the 
Performing Arts and the 
Horace Mann School, where 
kindergarten costs $4,000 a 
year. They also went to the 
Chinese Adult Language 
School. Patti Stone enjoyed 
learning about the subways 
with Lori Koester, and eating 
pizza with "Melvin" (Dr. 
Campbell). They also visited 
the Statue of Liberty where 

they got stuck on the ferry for 
two hours because of fog. 
The World Trade Center and 
the Empire State Building 
were favorite night spots when 
the visibility was good. Frank 
Roman, Deborah Bagger, and 
Myra Brown visited a couple 
of Broadway plays, while 
Cynthia Wagner, Eric Mock, 
Beth Ristenbatt, and Barbara 
Merritt visited several of the 
many department stores on 
Fifth Avenue. Macy's, Bloom- 
ingdale's, Gucci's, Tiffany 
and Co., and Godiva Choco- 
lates were stops for many in 
the group. 
Staten Island, the Statue of 
Liberty, the Chrysler Build- 
ing, NBC Studios, the Waldorf 
Astoria, Grand Central Sta- 
tion, and the Pan Am Building 
were daily sights as the stu- 
dents made their way by bus, 
subway, or taxi to the various 
museums and places of 

Thanksgiving Day found 
several SC students in atten- 
dance at the Macy's Parade. 

Sherry Tryon and p a „, 
Dtckman stood on the corn 
of Broadway and 44th Stree! 
and watched the parade pas. 
right in front of them. Then 
they rushed off to help serve 
Thanksgiving dinner at the 
Salvation Army in Harlem 
another requirement for the 
Behavioral Science group. 

Despite delays in leaving the 
Big Apple, the group finally 
found its way back to College- 
dale on Sunday night around 6 
p.m., November 28. 

Even though the group was 
glad to be back, several of the 
students were sad to leave the 
city behind. A week of 
walking through New York left 
many impressions on the stu- 
dents. The skyscrapers, the 
Top of the Sixes on Fifth 
Avenue, the Brooklyn Bridge, 
Harlem, the parade, the 
shops, 42nd Street, the UN 
Building, and Manhattan 
itself will always be the "city 
that never sleeps."

Twas the night before Christmas at SC 

by Gordon Bletz 

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the dorm 

Not a student was stirring, they were all trying to keep warm. 

Those students were nestled all snug in their beds. 

While Meyers was watching from the roof over their heads. 

A rumor he had heard of a little red man, 

Who was going to attempt an unusual plan. 

He quietly waited on the roof with care, 

For fear someone unwanted would soon be there. 

As Evans and Christman had just relaxed, 

And Runyan and Somers were near collapse, 

There arose on the campus an incredible clatter, 

Schlisner sprang from his bed to see what was the matter. 

Immediately he saw something small and red, 

And in a flash the fire alarm sounded overhead. 

Away to the windows faculty flew like a flash 

Tore open their shutters and threw up the sash. 

The rumor spread with incredible speed, 

That the school was on fire - some dastardly deed. 

With pumper and tanker the Fire Department came 

With every intention of dousing the flame. 

Fire hoses in order were laid over the ground 

Hither and yon the lawn they "crowned. 

Firemen carefully moved with nozzles in hand 

Stealthily proceeding over the land. 

Then with a burst of water the hose went off like a shot 

And the bushes were flooded where there was that red spot. 

And out of the bushes a big wet red man paused, 

Grundset dressed as Santa Claus. 

"I just wanted to surprise the students tonight, 

I never knew security was so tight."

As one of the religion report- 
ers for the Accent I have 
access to press credentials. 
Now press credentials can get 
you into places that you would 
not normally get to go. By 
showing your card you can get 
in some of the most interest- 
ing places, in the light of the 
beat that I cover, I Thought 
that it would be good to do 
some investigative reporting. 
I decided it would be good if I 
contacted the opposition to' 
discover what plans they had 
in mind. That explains my trip 
to Hell (apologies to Gives 
St?ples Lewis). My trip was 
warm but uneventful and my 
press credentials gave me 
entry into a meeting that was 
being held concerning the 
progress of their evangelistic 
work on SC campus. 

As 1 slipped into the back of 
the meeting Screwtape was 
talking to Wormwood: 

Screwtape: "I don't care 
what you discovered about the 
administrative policies of SC 
in regard to attendance at 
religious services, the simple 
fact is that attendance at a 
religious service does not 
mean that there will be any 

fact it is my contention and I 
think that I can back this up, 
that if we can capture their 
minds during intensive relig- 
ious instruction we have got 
them for good." 
Wormwood: "Well I didn't 

mean to make you angry; I just 
was reporting on what the 
policies of the school are so we 
coi'ld better be able to 
counteract them. I agree with 
you; If you can get a dog to 
bite its master when he is in a 
good home, just think what 
you will be able to get it to do 
when he is not in a good home. 

Screwtape: "Good illusta- 
tion, so what are we doing to 
get these dogs to bite?" 

Wormwood: "Snakeskin and 
myself have been working on a 
strategy which we would like 
to share with you." 

Screwtape: "Ok, let's hear 


nize that it 
form and w 

'You will recog-

tried it, but the broad general 
outline certainly has worked in 
times past with other similar 
Screwtape: "Get on with 
it!" _ _ 

Wormwood: "Okay, we have 
the following main points we 
have prepared on this chart for 
your approval: 

1. Required religious 

a. Get the students to miss 
an many of these as possible 

1) getting them to think 
of them as boring 

2) getting them interest- 
ed in other things 

Screwtape: "Lakes of Fire! 
Wait just a minute! That is 

not a good approach! They 
have to attend a certain 
number of services, right?" 
Wormwood: "Yes." 
Screwtape: "Well, just 
getting them not to attend is 
too obvious. No doubt if they 
never attended they would not 
be able to continue school 
there. What you need to do is 
to get them not to pay atten- 
tion to the ones they go to. Get 
them to become accustomed tc 
religious services, so accus- 
tomed to them that they don't 
hear what is being said. Their 
minds should be elsewhere 
while 'The Word' (I hate to 
say that!) is being pro- 
nounced. Haven't you studied 
in the Bible where he says that 
' 'His word will not return unto 
him void"? We must make 
the word appear so common 
that no attention is paid to it. 
No one is a better long term 
candidate for living with us 
than the one who is so 
accustomed to hearing reli- 
gious things that they run like 
water off of a duck's back." 
Wormwood: "Are you tak- 
ing notes, Snakeskin?" 
Snakeskin: "Yes sirf' 
Screwtape: "Do I have to do 
all the thinking for Hell? What 
else do you have planned?" 
Wormwood: "Well, under 
'b' here - 

b. When attending 
religious services have them 
sit in the back so there will be 
as much distraction as possi- 


Screwtape: "That is fine! 
Nothing wrong with that." 

Wormwood: "Well, to con- 
tinue, you see under number 2

Screwtape: "Once again you 
are missing the point. When 
dealing with a religious insti- 
tution - people who are ex- 
posed to religion all of the 


full of religion and religious 
ideas that they don't think 
about them-they don't apply 
them-some call it being Gos- 
pel Hardened. 
Snakeskin: "But how do you 
get them to be Gospel 

Screwtape: "I thought you 
were bringing a plan to me. 
Doesn't anybody else have 
any brains around here? You 
get them to say 'I've heard 
that before' every time they 
hear a religious talk. Just get 
them to put their minds in 
neutral when it comes to 
religious issues. And what- 
ever you do, don't let them 
reflect on the purpose of life; 
don't let them think about the 
"Big Picture"— occupy them 
with trivia. For example, 
when a speaker is making a 
good spiritual point for the 
opposition, get them to think- 
ing about the funny tie he is 
wearing, the strange haircut 

he has or whatever." 
Wormwood: "Are you still 
taking notes, Snakeskin?" 
Snakesking: "Yes sir!" 
Wormwood: "Okay, you 
mean we should get them to 
focus on peripherial issues 
and not the central ones." 
Screwtape: "That is right. 
You see, it is a question of the 
heart - what motivates them. 
Perfunctory external behavior 
is never a problem with us. I 
mean who cares if the whole 
world goes to church - as long 
as it is just a cultural, social 
behavior and not a heart 
thing. That is how we nailed 
the Pharisees. Heh, heh, boy 
do I remember working with 
those suckers - never had so 
much fun! You should go back 
to the archives and watch 
some old movies of my work 
on them. That is how I got 
where I am you know." 
It was at about that time that 
some security conscious angel 
(I think his name was Flytrap) 
came over to me and asked for 
my credentials. I stalled, but 
it did no good. When he found 
out I was from SC, he threw 
me out on my ear, so to speak. 
(It was kind of a good feeling 
bfeing thrown out of Hell.) 
Well, I was there long enough 
to catch some of their plans 
and so I thought I would report 
them to you.

With first semester coming 
to a close, all SC sports fans 
are eagerly looking forward to 
the basketball season which 
begins second semester. Bas- 
ketball has traditionally been 
the most popular sport here at 
SC as far as fan participation 
is concerned. This is probably 
due to the fact that the 
schedule is kept despite the 
inclement weather and also 
due to the excellent talent 
displayed on the court, 
exception. With the absence 
of dominating players, the 
season looks as though it will 
be even more competitive than 
in past years. Coach Steve 
Jaecks expressed much op- 
timism concerning the upcom- 

ing season. He intends to add 
a few dimensions to the 
leagues such as a three-man 
tournament and possibly an 
all-star game in A and B 

This year's format will basic- 
ally be the same as in past 
years with women's A league 
sporting six to ten teams, and 
the men's play divided into 
AA, A, and B leagues. 
Those involved in basketball 
intramurals should be pre- 
pared to purchase their jersey 
through the P. E. Department 
at a cost of $7-8.

The tourney consisted of 1J

The team of Rod Hartle, Fred 
Roscher, and Rhoben

team of Alex Lamourt, Carlos

gain the first place berth. The 
day-long tournament which 
started at 9 a.m. and ended at

success." Possibly this could

fiouthe/tn Q ti ftic 

by Victor Czerkasij 

Like the rest of you, I just 
received my final semester 
school bill. From it, I could 
deduce one thing: the $48 
salary 1 received from the 
Accent "was not going to pay. 
Bui 1 though we could work 
our way through school. May- 
be I should strike. No, maybe 
not. Then we'd have to read 
Loga every week. 

I picked up my statement and 
look another look. Hmmiri, 
$25 for Finance Memories? 
S55 for Preventive Infestation? 
51. 50 for an Easy Exam Pass 
Fund? What is this? What 
are these charges all about: I 
can't get my exam pass for 
this? Since it was early 
morning, I thought I'd go pay 
i he Finance Office a visit. I

The line to Randy White's 
office twisted and turned clear 
out of Wright Hall and ended 
by the Christmas tree. I took 
my place behind a guy who 
was covered with cobwebs. 
"Quite a line," I said, trying 
to make conversation. He 
stood frozen, holding a state- 
ment dated 1964. I shivered. 

Toward evening, I was near 
his door. "Now serving 973" 
droned a voice. "Here," I 
croaked. Stepping inside the 
executive office, I asked where 
White was. ■■Oh," said a 
smartly dressed girl (aren't all 
the girls who work there 
smartly dressed?). "He just 
took off for vacation. He 
always leaves the week before 
exams. Could I help you? 

Gratified that I didn't have to 
make a hard-luck story sell ("I

decided to come straight to the

She looked them over and 
said, "It all appears in order 
to me. Don't you know what 
these charges are all about? 
They're in the '83 catalog." 

"It's '82." 

"Oh well, we thought it best 
to get into practice." I 
wondered how she'd look with 
a noose. "Well, what's $20

decided to give her one more 
chance. "What is the Easy

batting an eye from her nail

student donates a $1 .50. Then 
a work group is chosen and 
their names go into a hat. If a 
name is chosen, they get their 
bill paid and a free exam pass

Thinking of all the football

had to come. "Well." I said,

Southern College registered 
1,530 students for its spring 
semester on Monday, January 3. 
Thirty-three of these students 
were enrolled in the program for 
registered nurses in Chattanooga, 
and 116 students were registered 
on the Orlando campus. An addi- 
tional 61 students are expected to 
register for the extension courses 
offered through several Southern 
Union academies. It is also ex- 
pected that there will be 50 or 
more late registrants. 

The final enrollment figure for 
this semester is projected to be 
1,650. This is only an eight per- 
cent decrease from the fall semes- 
ter. According to Miss Mary 
Elam, Director of Records, 
"This is the average drop from 

the economy the way it is,

registration was held ii

Most of those registering 
pleted registration and left the 
gymnasium ten to twenty 
after entering. Although th 
meant extra preparation and 
time on the part of the Records 
Department, Miss Elam endorsed 
the program, saying, "This al- 
lows the student more time with 
his advisor, and that is the main 
consideration. It also prods him 
to give more thought to his 
schedule a little sooner. 1 ' 

Overall, students seemed 
pleased with how smoothly reg- 

istration went for them. One stu- 
dent exclaimed, "Oh, yes, I liked 
it! It was a lot shorter. Ten min-

at Southern College. Previously a 
pastor in Palm Springs, Dr. 
Blanco is teaching Adventisl 
Heritage and Teachings of Jesus 


Dr. Blanco worked as a minis- 
ter for ten years before entering 
educational work for approxi- 
mately fifteen years. He has held 
positions at the Review and 
Herald and has pastored churches 
lf i ihe Columbia Union, the 
Southern Union, and the Pacific 

For the past few years, he has 
wanted to get back into teaching, 
but there were no openings until 
this past year. Besides Southern's 
offer, Dr. Blanco had also re- 
ceived calls from two other Ad- 
ventist colleges. 

When asked why he chose SC, 
he stated, "I've been wanting to 
gel back into education so that I 
could teach ministerial stu- 
dents." Blanco used to pastor the 
Johnson City church a few years 
a go, so he is very comfortable in

New village 
policy begin s 

Southern College has re- 
vamped its chapel requirements 
for village students for the second 
semester. According to Everett 
Schlisner, Dean of Students, vil- 
lage students will be required to 
get four points each week for a 
total of 60 during the semester. 

Instead of receiving points 
only for chapels, village students 
can now also receive two points 
for attending Wednesday night 
prayer meeting and vespers. 
"We are broadening the availa- 
bility of chapel options," 
Schlisner said. 

Under the old plan, village 
students were not required to at- 
tend prayer meeting or vespers. 
And they could be exempt from 
chapel if they had work conflicts 
or if they didn't have any Tues- 
day or Thursday classes. The new 
plan limits exemptions and re- 
quires more participation in Ihe 
programs . 

Some village students are up- 

set. "This new system imposes 
the same restrictions on village 
students as dorm students without 
the same privileges," com- 
mented Bob MacLafferty during 
a discussion meeting Schlisner 
held with village students. 
"Since I work during chapels, if 
I'm gone for the weekend, I 
would be hopelessly behind." 

"There will always be some 
exceptions," Schlisner said. 
"We don't want the chapel pro- 
gram to be a burden, but we want 
to include village students in ac- 

Nearthe end of the discussion, 
Schlisner staled one reason why 
the chapel policy was being tight- 
ened instead of being loosened or 
done away with. "Throughout 
history, religious colleges that 
have done away with enforced at- 
tendance at worships have lost 
their missions. Southern College 
doesn't want to go that route." 

Lectures start

The series of 10 lectures features 
top speakers discussing such

education is available. 

The first lecture, scheduled for 

January 13, is Dr. Gene Stana-

the field of economics. He has 
given presentations and lectures 
for many management groups, 
companies, organizations and

2 SOUTHERN ACCENT/January 13, 1983 


New Year's 

With the New Year almost two weeks old, many of us probably 
have already forgotten those resolutions we made, if we even 
bothered at all. 

1 used to always make New Year's resolutions, but somehow my 
enthusiasm for turning over a new leaf was gone after a very short 
time. I just couldn't seem to change. I guess I always expected an 
overnight type of transformation—a transformation that would make 
me into the perfect person. 

Of course that never happened. And somewhere along the line, I 
became discouraged enough to quit making those silly resolutions. 
After all, why go to all that trouble when I'd mess up after a week or 
two anyway? 

Well, useless as the custom may seem, it was begun for a good 
reason. The English used to clean their chimneys for good luck in the 
New Year. This was later applied to faults and bad habits by the 
saying "cleaning the slate." It meant putting the past behind and 
starting the New Year fresh and clean. 

The idea was good, but maybe it has just gotten out of our hands. 
Maybe we just expect too much from ourselves. Or maybe we don't 
expect enough. Changing a habit can be very difficult, and giving up 
loo soon can be very easy. 

I think perseverance would be a very nice thing to have in this new 
year. "But Lord, do you think 1 could have it now?"

Dear Editor, 

Many of us found that while 
we were in church on January 8, 
the publication, Pilgrim's 
Waymarks had been stuck on our 

My first reaction was to pull it 
off of every car I could, but I 
realized that ignorance is not bliss 
so I just took mine home and 
studied it. Now I'm sure that the 
editors and backers of that paper 
are concerned for the church, and 
for that I am glad, but I question 
their methods and arguments. 

Methods: (1) It seems to me 
that their mode of operation tends 
to divide the church, and al- 
though Christ did bring a sword 
to the earth, He did so to separate 
good and evil, not the church. For 
them. He prayed that they would 
be one, even as He and the Father 

(2) Should not questions about 

the doctrine held by the church be 
studied openly rather than by a 
covert distribution of pamphlets? 

(3) Should not the church be 
putting its principal efforts into 
telling the fantastic news of the 
salvation offered to us by Christ's 
sacrifice rather than spending our 
money and time bickering about 
something which not one of us 
knows the final answer to? 

(4) Are we treading on Holy 
ground? The paper quotes from 
the Spirit of Prophecy on their 
position, and I would also quote 
from the same source: "avoid 
every question in relation to the 
humanity of Christ which is liable 
to be misunderstood. Truth lies 
close to the track of presump- 


Christ has ever been and will ever 
remain a mystery." 5BC 1128 

Arguments; First let me state 
that I do not know all or even 

many of the answers and I invite 
discussion, but I would like to 
note at least one flaw in the paper. 
They state: "He took moral de- 
generacies as well." In 5BC 
1128, we may read that: "Be- 
cause of sin his posterity was 
born with propensities of dis- 
obedience ... but not for one 
moment was there in Him an evil 

I agree that there should be a 
discussion in the church, espe- 
cially in a college environment, 
but shouldn't our aim be to show 
and tell others the wonderful life 
that comes from knowing out 
Saviour rather than by bickering 
over things which we may never 
understand? The Lord is coming 
soon. Let's be ready!

Dear Editor, 

I think something needs to be 
said about the highway robbery at 
the salad bar in the cafeteria. It 
cost $2.50 for a plate of salad, 
and you can't even go back for 
more. IMAGINE THAT! $2.50 
for a little lettuce, tomatoes, 
cucumbers, croutons and dress- 
ing. Only we don't have to im- 
agine this because that is what we 

Now if we were able to go back 
tor more without any extra cost 
this might be a reasonable price' 
But as long as this school is a 

non-profit organization, it should 
keep prices on food at the level

Approximate wholesale price 
for one head of lettuce is 290, one 
pound of tomatoes is 500, 
cucumbers cost 400 a pound and 
salad dressing is relatively inex- 
pensive for the amount put on a 

As far as I can figure, it would 
take five pounds of salad to jus-

Letters cont'd 

Dear Editor: 

1 musi say that 1 was not sur- 
prised to see yet another attack 
upon a member of our Religion 
Department in the person of Dr. 
Gulley and his Sabbath school 
lesson for this quarter. 

By now I am sure that the Dec. 
]5 issue of Pilgrim's Waymarks 
has reached the hand's of a 
number of the students here at 
Southern College. Personally, I 
do not habitually read the 
Wavmarks. After all, it is not an 
official church paper and there is 
so much good material to read in 
one's spare time in our denomina- 
tionally supported papers, sucrj 
as Ministry, The Review, Insight. 
etc But due to the nature of this 
issue of the Waymarks, I was 
eager to see how our heretofore 

unimpeachable Dr. Gulley would 
stand in the sarcastic eye of 
Vance Ferrell. What I read 
spurred this letter to your desk. 

Those who feed on theological 
debate will be left unsatisfied by 
this letter, for I am not seeking to 
contradict the theology of the 
Waymarks, for any senior theol- 
ogy major whose mind has been 
clouded by reading such "cor- 
rupt" material as the SDA Bible 
Commentary and Questions On 
Doctrine would not stand a 
chance of arriving at truth, as de- 
fined by Waymarks. But I do 
think two issues must be raised 
for the well-being of this God- 
ordained institution of higher 

The first issue stems from the 
remark in the Waymarks that 
"truth is more important than 
friendship." This attitude has 

permeated certain papers, tapes, 
and lectures, which have called 
into question the integrity of the 
Bible teachers here at Southern 
College. That attitude has dulled 
the spirituality of this campus in 
the recent years and must be put 
away if we are going to fulfill our 
Lord's command to love one 
another. "Truth" is very impor- 
tant but it is important only as 
long as it brings souls to The 
Truth (i.e. Jesus Christ). Even if 
Dr. Gulley would err in a theolog- 
ical position (not a doctrinal posi- 
tion but a theological position), 
does that mean he shall no longer 
be considered a friend? Is that 
how Christ treated the woman at 
the well or Nicodemus? Dare I 
say that Christ even treated Judas 
with utmost kindness. Without 
friendships, the evangelistic 
power of the gospel is lost. 

The second issue arises out of 
the way Waymarks so nicely 
points out error from truth. If we 
truly believe that God called out 
this church in 1844, then should 
we not submit ourselves to the 
actions of the General Confer- 
ence Committee when it is in ses- 
sion? While we are to search the 
Scriptures and the Spirit of 
Prophecy for ourselves, should 
we not submit our personal opin- 
ions to those of the church body? 
I maintain that the fact that Dr. 
Gulley's manuscript was submit- 
ted to the editorial scrutiny of 
both ihe Review and the Sabbath 
School Department of the G.C., 
and was printed by the church 
press, would at least suggest that 
Dr. Gulley's theological position 
was upheld by the highest levels 
of our church leadership! As far 
as f know, the Waymarks does 

not submit itself to anybody! 
Now, personally, I don't believe 
that we should look to the church 
to replace personal Bible study, 
nor am I saying that we need to 
have an agency which decides 
truth for us. I do suggest that be- 
fore we make dogmatic state- 
ments about somebody else's 
theology, perhaps we should 
submit our ideas to the total body 
of Christ.

Studying can be easier 

The Southern Accent begins a 
new column this week. "Feed-

they may have about a school pol- 
icy, social or personal problem.

The way you feel about your- 
self greatly determines how you 
will achieve in school or in life. 
Look at yourself. What is impor- 
tant to you? What do you want to 
achieve? What are your values? 
As you think about these ques- 
tions and the possible answers, 
remember that when you make 
any meaningful decisions about 
your life, it wi\l contain a large 
amount of faith, commitment, 
and possibly a lot of bard study. 
Next, develop a positive plan 
of action and set specific goals. 
When trying to set goals that will 
lead to success in your academic 
life, you must take into consider- 
ation all your needs and goals. 
Success in your academic life is 
not just dependent on how many 
hours a day you study , but also 
why do you study? What purpose 
does learning have for you? 

Most students have goals. 
However, often they are more 
like wishes than specific plans for 
accomplishment. If you plan 
your goals and list them accord- 
ing to priorities, decision-making 
will become easier. Goals can 
save time and build self- 

Have you ever noticed that 
some people seem to have more 
time for fun things or more time 
for studying than others? Wrong! 
Everyone has the same amount of 
time, it is just how you schedule 
your time and whether you stick 
to the schedule. Try an experi- 
ment. For seven days keep track 
of what you do. Be honest. If you 
do nothing, show it on the 

When you set up a schedule 
and stick to it, there are many 
advantages: it prevents the avoid- 
ance of disliked subjects; it gets 
you started studying; it eliminates 
the last minute cramming be- 
cause you have already studied 
the material; it actually makes 
studying enjoyable; it promotes 
cumulative review, that is. you 
can review the material as you go 
along; you have time for recrea-

you will find that yon have more 
"free" time. 

When you make a schedule, 
try to make each hour block a 
productive unit. If youhavearec-

January 13. 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 


Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest there was a colony of bees. 
This was a rather large colony 
and most of the young bees had 
grown up in this one huge cone. 
One day it was decided to begin a 
new colony and so a rather large 
number of young bees volun- 
teered to begin a new hive. They 
had been trained in the bee 
schools of the old hive and they 
had learned about all the 
techniques of hive buildings at 
the feet or legs of their parents. 
But ihey had never put their learn- 
ing into practice. This new group 
was very enthusiastic and they 
organized their new hive project 
with enthusiasm. They were sure 
thai they could have a better hive 
then the old hive that they had 
grown up in and so they were 

anxious to be off and develop 
their own hive. They followed 
their queen bee to a new location 
and began the task of construct- 

ing ;j 

. hiv. 

Now they had a chance to 
prove that their ideas about run- 
ning a hive were better than the 
ideas of their parents. Some of 
the bees had taken geometry at 
the old hive school and even at 
that time they figured that they 
knew more than their teachers. 
They decided that the old way of 
building cells for honey with six 
sides was old-fashioned and they 
decided that square cells would 
work just as well and they would 
use less wax. So they started to 

It wasn't too long before they 
learned that the square cells 

would not hold the weight of the 
honey and as cells collapsed they 
began to fight and argue with 
each other about whose dumb 
idea it was to build the square 

Then one bee who was very 
smart in geometry said he knew 
how they could build a very 
strong hive and in fact it would be 
stronger then their parent's hive. 
He suggested that they build the 
cells in a triangular shape. They 
all quickly agreed and began the 
task of building the hive with 
honey cells in a triangular shape. 
All went well for a time and the 
hive was truly strong but it wasn't 
too long before the queen bee 
found that she couldn't lay eggs 
in the cells because they were too 
small and if they did get any eggs 

into the cells it was found that the 
new larva died in the cells be- 
cause the cells were too small to 
allow for the larva to grow. 

They decided that the answer 
was simply to build them larger 
but when they built them large 
enough to hold the newly de- 
veloping bees they found that the 
sides eollapsed. 

Things were getting desperate 
at the new hive. They were rais- 
ing no new worker bees and they 
were storing no honey for the 
winter. Months passed and they 
could come to no satisfactory 
solution to their problem. 

A few timid bees suggested 
that they didn't have such build- 
ing problems when they were liv- 
ing with their parents. So they 
suggested that they build the cells 

like their parents did. Well none 
of the bees could really remember 
how that was. They had studied 
just to pass bee school and with 
no experience they soon forgot 
what they had been taught. 

Soon the cold of the winter 
came and with no honey and no 
place to store honey, the hive 
quickly ran out of food. They 
tried to keep the queen alive but 
with her large appetite and the 
short supply of honey she soon 
died and the new beehive died

Fredrick Koenig is a social 
psychologist a! Tulane Universi- 
ty. He has written on a wide 
range of topics for professional 
journals and has served as a con- 
sultant for major corporations, 
including McDonald's and 
Coca-Cola. The following is from 
a conversation with an editor of 
U.S. News & World Report. 

Periods of anxiety, tension and 
sagging economic conditions 
often lead to a proliferation of 

Although the level of rumors 
now is not as high as in wartime, 
many people today are distressed 
because of business failures, un- 
employment or fear of un- 
employment. Others are alarmed 
at what they see as a decline in 
morals and traditional values.

somehow makes him feel belter

cessful. By striking out at a big

As for the question of who 
starts rumors, it's a mistake to 
think that there's a particular per- 
son or even a group of persons 
who compose rumors and spread 
them systematically. I know 
there are some corporations that 
actually try to trace down the 
source, hoping somehow to get 
back to some little guy in a base- 
ment with a typewriter. But it is 
not that simple. Rumors tend to 
evolve and take on new details as 
people talk to each other. 

Still, rumors tend to be circu- 
lated by a particular type of per- 
son. From our research, we find 
that the rumor participant — that 
is, the one who is eager to listen 
to or pass on a rumor— is usually 
somebody who wants to attract

Radio talk shows often are 
used to spread rumors, particu-

doesn't have the facts 10 refute a 
rumor and simply leaves the 
question open. There also are all

It was a glorious Sunday 
morning, the kind where I

ai my clock, and rolled over. 

I had at least another hour 
before I needed to get up. 
Perhaps then I'd wander down 
lo the CK for some waffles, 
hashbrowns, and eggs. With 
these thoughts on my mind, I 
drifted back into never-never 
land and was surprised tn see 
myself striding through 'he 
CK door. 

"I'd like a strawberry waff el, 
an order of hashbrowns and a 
cheese omelet," I said, plac-

the words escaped my lips 
than my eyes fell upon the 

sign. It read OUT OF

I think I went to the VM and 
bought some breakfast bars. 

My dream hazed over and 
suddenly I was at the CK 
again, hot and tired after 
watching my boyfriend lose 
the football game for his team. 
But before I had a chance to 
place my order of a Master-

french fries, I saw the "OUT 





Chocolate ice cream

And then I saw myself push- 
ing my way into the CK again. 
Suddenly it was hot; it was 
crowded. I looked around me 
and there they were. Students 
of SC, ghostlike, malnour- 
ished skeletons, tearing open 
catsup packages and mixing 
the contents with water. 

I had to get out of there, I 
was gripped with a sudden 
claustrophobic need to get out 
of that building into the fresh 
air. The "OUT OF:" sign 
glared into my eyes. "NO 
FOOD" it read. I tried 
pushing my way through the 
cobwebby bodies, but I 
couldn't get through. I 
pushed; I shoved; I wasn't 
making headway. The bones 

on my body started to shrink. I 
opened my mouth to scream 
and awoke in a cold sweat. 
It hadn't happened. It was 
just a dream. Nothing to 
worry about. I climbed out of 
bed and prepared for my

constitution for the SC chapter was 
drawn up by Maureen Mayden and 
Beth Crawford. 

"Ski in the Sun," a Warren 
Miller film production, was pre- 
sented in the Southern College 
gymnasium Saturday night, 
January 8, as a part of the col- 
lege's Entertainment Series. 

Splendid photography, excel- 
lent music, and humorous narra- 
tion combined to effectively cap- 
tivate the audience as it whisked 
them away to ski resorts all over 
the world. Austria, France, 
Switzerland, British Columbia, 
and New Zealand were some of 
the many countries portrayed as 
places where "one is free, free to 
'Ski in the Sun.' " 

All aspects of skiing were 
shown — from the old to the new, 
the funny to the sad, the fearful to 
the exciting. The audience skied 
along with a 95-year-old man and 
his 57-year-old son, as well as a 
few of the 1940-50 Olympic 

The Junior Winter Olympics 
were filmed where young skiers, 
age 15-18, displayed their 
abilities in hopes of ' 'one day be- 
coming a part of the U.S. Olym- 
pic team." 

Another type of world cham- 
pion, according to Mr. Miller, 
was the ski lift attendant, who 
must be responsible for keeping 
"steel from hitting flesh" as 
skiers bound for the slopes fall off 
the lift. 

The hurt and disappointment 
of losing in a race or not breaking 
a record was captured. One short 
section of the film emphasized 
the importance and danger of the 
avalanche patrols, while another 
showed skiers racing down 
slopes at 120 miles per hour. 

The overall feel of the film, 
however, was the excitement and 
beauty of skiing. Everyone can 
do it and enjoy it.

When you are really serious 
about studying, always study 
with a pencil in your hand. If you 
are studying a textbook chapter, 
after reading several paragraphs 
briefly write the key points. If no 
words come to you, then you 
must reread the paragraphs with 
determination and concentration 
to find the key points. This activ- 
ity promotes concentration. 

In the Teaching Learning 
Center, we will be having Mini 
Sessions during the semester. 
The first one deals with schedul-

Expanding nursing program to begin 

Southern College will be 
expanding its nursing pro- 
gram starting in August. 
Plans have been announced to 
offer a two year RN program 

I at the Orlando campus in 
injunction with Florida Hos- 

I pital. 

j Southern College received 
approval from Tennessee 

| Board of Nursing on January 
to go ahead with the 
program. Response from the 
Florida Board of Nursing has 
also been favorable. Ellen 
Gilbert, chairman of the Divi- 
sion of Nursing, expects the 
Florida Board to grant full 
approval in the early part of 

The new program will start 
accepting applications in 
March for (he 40 openings in 
the fall class of 1983. Students 
will spend both years at 
Orlando and receive general 
education instruction in addi- 

tion to nursing classes. 

The extension program was 
planned at the request of 
Florida Hospital. "The per- 
centage of nurses at Florida 
Hospital is very low," stated 
Dr. Frank Knittel, president of 
SC. "This program will help 
increase the percentage of 
Adventist nurses at Florida 
Hospital and the number of 
nurses with a Christian philo- 
sophy." Presently, only 10-15 
percent of Flordia Hospital's 
nurses are Seventh-day 
Mrs. Gilbert sees some posi- 
tive aspects to the program. 
"Things have fallen into place 
beautifully. The change will 
make the Orlando campus 
more like a college campus. 
We have an excellent nursing 
program. We can take what 
we have developed here and 
put it to use there."

hosts banquet 

The Student Association 
announces its up-coming 
Sweetheart Banquet on Febru- 
ary 13 & 14. The location for 
this event is the Westin 
Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta. 

Standing 73 stories tall, the 
Peachtree holds the record for 
being the world's tallest hotel, 
and is the ultimate in con- 
temporary luxury. The hotel 
features a lobby with an 
eight-story atrium, a half-acre 
lake, and the world's largest 
tapestry. From the lobby, a 
short ride in the glass elevator 
will take visitors to the rotat- 
ing Sundial Restaurant, where 
dinner will be served. 

This iinner will consist of 
four full courses, with each 
table recieving individual 
service. There will be four 
different seatings at half hour 
intervals, starting at 5:30, 
with the 6:00 seating offering 
a sunset view. 

One unique factor is that 
flowers will be unacceptable at 
this banquet. This will be to 
offset the total expense of the 
Tickets will go on sale Sun- 
day, Jan. 23, at the Student 
Center desk and will cost 
$28.00 per couple. Gentle- 

men will be responsible for 
invitations and will be able to 
charge this on their 

Transportation will be 
provided at an additional 
$8.75, which must be paid in 
cash. For those using their 
own transportation, it would 
be ad\isib!e:to park across the 
street from the Peachtree. 

Arrangements for pictures 
have been made with a photo- 

grapher in Atlanta, who win 
provide two 5x7's and eight 
wallet size pictures for $7.25. 
In the Student Association 
Senate, it was voted unani- 
mously that the ladies be 
responsible for the purchase 
of any pictures. The pictures 
may be paid for in advance at 
the Student Center desk, or at 
the banquet itself. Faculty 
and staff, as well as students 
are all invited. 

Student wage 

by Dick Birc 

The Office of Student Em- 
ployment has announced a 
wage increase for those stu- 
dents employed by the col- 

According to Robert Peeke, 
director of student employ- 
ment, the college has adopted 
a job classification system 
which is similar to that of 
Princeton University. 

Under the new program each 
department will determine the 
starting age.of the employee, 
in reference to the classifica- 
tion of the job. The wage 
increase is in proportion to the 
skUt ana difficulty ofthe job, 
the worker's seniority, and the 
total number of hours worked. 
For instance, a secretary will 
earn a beginning wage of 
$3.20, compared to $2.85 from 

the former program. A secre- 
tary with two to three years 
experience could earn as much 
as $4.10 under the new pro- 

With the employer's ap- 
proval, workers, under most 
classifications, may receive 
pay raises for every 300 hours 
worked. The exception will be 
for those who have jobs which 
allow them to study while they 
work. Workers under this 
classification will earn the 
scale wage of $3.00. 

The college believes that the 
new program will provide 
added benefits to both the 
employer and the employee. It 
will encourage workers to stay 
with the same job to gain 
seniority, and will reward 
them for a job well done.

~) Election insights 

It is hard to believe that another election is almost upon us. 
Prospective candidates are testing the political waters and 
considering campaign promises and slogans. And, within 
ten days, the campus will be covered with flashy posters and 
smiling people, each urging the students to vote for that 
perfect candidate for the office. For those of you who are 
considering throwing your hat in the political ring or if you 
just want to know what your Student Association officers do, 
read on. 

President— The whole weight of student government falls 
on your shoulders. First of all, the Student Association 
President needs to co-operate with the faculty. But at the 
same time, he needs to stand up for student rights. This is a 
job for which few people qualify. 

Vice-President — Persons aspiring for this job need to be 
able to work closely with the president. This year, the 
vice-president has had the added responsibility of the 
Senate. Making this organization viable is a job in itself. 

Social Activities— A creative mind is a must for this job. 
The Social Activities director needs to plan all social 
functions then make sure they go smoothly. 

Student Service— For starters, the person elected to this 
office needs to know how to get to Dunkin' Donuts to pick up 
munchkins. But this is only the beginning. A good Student 
Services officer will make this office much more than cookie 

Southern Memories— The editorof the annual needs a 
knowledge of layout and design. The ability to organize is 

Southern Accent— The editor of the school paper faces long 
hours, weekly deadlines and the task of keeping the students 

attention beyond Southern Cynic and the Classifieds. But the 
job definitely is interesting. As one former editor put it, 

"The editor has the privilege of having praise whispered into 
one ear while obscenities are being whispered in the other." 

Joker— The Joker editor's job consists of working like crazy 
for several weeks v then taking it easy. The ability to go 
without sleep for several weeks is a definite plus if you want 
this job. 

If any of these exciting job descriptions turn you on, give it 
some thought, then go for it. Even if you lose, you will get 
your picture in the Southern Accent. That makes it worth all 
the pain!

Dear Editor, 
It has been said that the 
Student Association isn't do- 
ing the job they should be 
doing. What exactly should 
they be doing? Do you know? 
Let's have a look into the SA 
Constitution. In Article I of 
the constitution we find four 
statements which establish 
the purpose of the SA: 

1) To promote Christian 
fellowship and unity between 
the students, faculty and 
staff of Southern College 
within the framework of the 
principles of God's Word 
thus producing a community 
that graphically demon- 
strates the character of the 
infinite personal God through 

We can see this being done 
in the respect that much time 
goes into planning popular 
activities which are aimed at 
keeping our young people 
together. Such activities 
include skiing, movies, skat- 
ing, and many more that keep 
us within our own environ- 

2) To bring together, under 

central leadership and direc- 
tion, various co-curricular 
and extra-curricular student 
activities that contribute to a 
healthy, growing Christian 
college community. 

College Within a College is a 
major program designed and 
promoted by the SA. This 
program gives the college and 
its community a chance to 
reach out and take that which 
isn't available in the normal 
daily school or work schedule. 

3) To use the physical, 
financial, and social potential 
of such a community to 
develop an individual and 
collective Christ-like ministry 
to others. 

The SA has a budget which 
must be maintained therefore 
limiting the extravagance of 
certain activities. Working 
within the budget requires 
initiative and originality so 
that there is not a photocopied 
plan of activities from the past 
year or years. The SA is 
continually thinking up new 
activities, fund raisers and 
many various programs which 

aid m our Christian develop, 
ment! One such example 
would be the "Porter Serv- 
ice . This was a service 
rendered to the young ladies 
as they moved into their 

4) To represent the collective 
views and attitudes of the 
Southern College to (he ■ 
faculty and administration of 
Southern College. 

Polls are taken on various 
happenings that may arise 
during the course of the year. 
These polls are presented to 
the "higher-ups" in a very \ 
professional way. Students 
who may wish to express 
feelings on certain matters 
have the perogative to 
approach the officers of the SA 
and state their case. The SA ] 
does all in its power to help oi 
justify any wrongdoing. 

So you see by the constitution j 
standards the SA has in the 
past and is presently fulfilling 
its obligation as an organiza- 
tion on this campus.

College, the SavmSday^lSeail i ° 

Mac Frampton, well-known 
classical/pop pianist and ar- 
ranger, will perform Saturday 
evening, January 22, at South- 
ern College in Collegedale. 
Accompanied by Tom Cahall 
on bass and Art Montgomery 
on percussion, Frampton pro- 
jects an artistry of sound that 
has been widely acclaimed by 

Saturday evening's concert 
should appeal to a variety of 
musical tastes, as Frampton's 
repertoire ranges from clas- 
sical to jazz. He presents 
music which he describes as 
"rock alternative" in style. 
When asked to describe and 
define this style, Mac said, 
"It's easier to say what it is 
not. It's not rock, it's not jazz, 
and it's not classical, yet it has 
influences of all three. It has 
classical discipline, with the 
freedom of porj." 
Described by reviewers as 

"one of the most exciting and 
talented young pianists on the 
American stage today," Mac 
Frampton is an international 
concert artist who has ap- 
peared frequently on tele- 
vision and has played more 
than a thousand concerts with 
his trio. In addition, he has 
written the score for two 
original musicals and the ar- 
rangements for three others. 
He has appeared with several 
major orchestras as a guest 
conductor and guest soloist. 
Six successful record albums 
are credited to him. 

Mac Frampton came to na- 
tional prominence when he 
won the bronze medal in the 
1969 Van Cliburn Interna- 
tional Piano Competition. He 
holds the master's and doc- 
toral degrees in music from

Loga directs "Shenandoah" 

He's not a soldier; Set 

he's just a man!" 


"Mister— I didn't mean to. 
I mean, I thought he was a 
bluebelly and — " 

A gunshot. The startled 
soldier is thrown backwards as 
the bullet tears through his 
flesh. He manages only to 
gasp once— a hoarse, ago- 
nized cry — before he falls in a 
lifeless heap on the ground. 

With an incredibly powerful 
blend of emotionally gripping 
scenes like this, extensive 
choreography, light music and 
a continuing thread of humor, 
"Shenandoah" promises to be 
truly outstanding production. 

the early 1860's, 
'Shenandoah" is the story of 
a lone farmer's attempt to 
keep himself and his family 
out of the Civil War. Accord- 
ing to the farmer, Charlie 
Anderson, he is neutral, on no 
man's side. But the state, his 
neighbors and even his own 
sons feel that his attitude 
displays a lack of patriotism to 
his country. And soon, quite 
against his will, he finds 
himself fighting, defending, 
killing, all the things he hates 
most about the war. His 
thinking — and yours — will be 
dramatically changed as the 
play unfolds. 
Randy Aldridge, a senior 

health science major, plays 
the lead role of Father Ander- 
son. Not only does he appear 
in most of the scenes, he also 
has several vocal solos to 
perofrm. Randy has perform- 
ed in musicals before, the 
most current one being the 
music department production 
of "The Stingiest Man in 
Town" last fall. 
Except for the two female 
parts, played by Laurie Lee 
and Kathy Potts, the play is 
done with an all-male cast. 
Southern Bel Canto will 
appear in two scenes, accom- 
panied by an 18-member 
orchestra which performs all 
of the musical numbers 

throughout the play. 

The play will be performed 
under the direction of Laurie 
Loga, with Larry Otto direct- 
ing the music. Although 
Laurie has performed in 
several other plays, this one 
will be her first in the role of 

With only a week before 
performance, the 25-member 
cast has been practicing 
almost every night. Occasion- 
ally tempers get a little short 
and more than once the actors 
have been tempted to quit 
when a scene isn't going like it 
should. But slowly, gradually, 
the puzzle pieces that make 
this play such an unfor-

gettable masterpiece are go- 
ing together. By the end of 
January, when the play is 
scheduled to be performed, 
the entire cast will be ready to 
give the audience an excellent 
re-creation of one of the most 
dramatic periods in the history 
of the Souther. 
The play will be performed 
January 30, 31, and Februaryl 
in the Collgedale Academy 
Auditorium. Performance 

time is at 8:00. Tickets are S5

The Honorable Ralph Kelley, 
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the 
Eastern District of Tennessee, 
addressed a group of students 
and faculty in Summerour Hall 
Monday evening, January 17. 
At the invitation of Business 
Law Professor Steve Spears, 
Judge Kelley, former major of 
Chattanooga, spoke on current 
bankruptcy law. 

Over 2800 bankruptcy cases 
were filed in Chattanooga and 
its surrounding 19 counties in 
1982, with more than 2147 of 
those being filed under 
Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 of 

the Bankruptcy Act of 1978. 
When filing under Chapter II 
or 13, a debtor is proming to 
pay a portion of his debts to all 
creditors. "This court (bank- 
ruptcy) does roore than let 
people go bankrupt and not 
pay their bills," stated Judge 
Kelley. As evidence to his 
statement, over $6.5 million 
was paid in 1982 to creditors 
by debtors filed under Chapter 

In addition to clarifying the 
different types of bankruptcy, 
Judge Kelley explained the 
importance of a bill under 

Article 3 of the U.S. Constitu- 
tionthat is currently pending 
passage by Congress. "Arti- 
cle 3 says that judges who 
exercise the judicial power of 
the U.S. shall enjoy their 
office during good behaviour 
and shall not have their sal- 
aries diminished." Presently, 
bankruptcy judges do not 
come under Article 3, and 
therefore, do not have the 
authority necessary to make 
independent decisions. "Un- 
less Congress says, 'You're 
under Article3,' everyone will 
question our decisions and

^Dallas Holm performs in concert 

by Dick Bird 

"The best thing this world 
can offer you is a lie, and then 
death," warned Christian 
music artist Dallas Holm 
between songs of his concert 
held last Friday night in Lee 
College's Conn Center. 

Moments before, a sell-out 
crowd, comprised mainly of 
high school and college stu- 
dents cheered as Holm per- 
formed many of his hits. Now 
they listened intently as he 
told of his conversion 

' 'There is a difference 
between knowing and believ- 
ing," Holm said referring to 
those individuals who claim to 
be Christians, yet do not have 
a personal relationship with 
the Lord. "I was from a 
Christian home, yet, Christ- 
ians made me nervous," said 
Holm. "They were always 
trying to get me saved." 
Little did he know that God 
would soon call him to service. 

Then it happened — on 

October 17, 1965, Dallas Holm 
became a disciple of Jesus

Christians, for now he was a 

child of the King. "It was the 

best thing I ever did," said the 

talented musician. 

In the months following his 
conversion, Dallas Holm 
organized a musical group 
that sang in jails, rest homes, 
and small churches. Accord- 
ing to Holm "It was some- 
thing I could do, and it is what 
I did best. I needed to do it for 
the Lord." 

Holm feels that there is a 
great deal of truth to the Bible 
principle that if God can trust 
man with little things, He can 
trust him with big things. The 
success he has experienced 
didn't happen overnight. It 
took a great deal of Bible 
study, prayer, and waiting 
upon the Lord. 

Holm believes that the 

Christian cannot continue to 
grow spiritually without daily 
prayer and Bible study. "We 
communicate with God in our 
prayers," stated Holm, "but 
itis throught the Bible that we 
can hear God speaking to us." 

During an interview with the 
Southern Accent later that 
evening, Holm was asked if 
his group was criticized for the 
style of music they perform. 
Surprisingly, they have 
encountered little opposition 
because they are concerned 
with ministering, rather than 
entertaining. "We're kind of 
in an awkward position, ' ' 
stated Holm, "I'd say we're 
on the Contemporary side of- 
middle-of-the road. Com- 
pared to some of the contem- 
porary hard groups, we're 
pretty watered down. To 
some of the people who are 
more interested in traditional 
styles, they think we're rock- 

Having received national 

recognition for the release of 
his powerful song "Rise 
Again", Holm has received no 
fewer than five Dove Awards. 
His credits include Dove 
Awards for "Best Male 
Vocalist," "Album of the 
Year," "Best Mixed Group of 
the Year," "Song of the

Holm spoke of his experience

album "I Saw the Lord."'"- 
Having devoted many weeks 
to eternal things, the words 
came to mind as he and his 
wife Linda drove to Dallas. 
"Though it wasn't a vision as 
such," said Holm, "I had a 
mental image just in the 

thought processes of what ih e 
moment {Christ's coming) 
would be like." I, was *

a song which tells of some of

"Hittin' the Road";

: the s 

Compared to populations in 
other southeastern states, Flori- 
da's Bald Eagle {Haliaeetus 
leucocephalus), is doing well. 
While fewer than 20 active nests 
occur throughout the rest of the 
southeast, well over 200 breeding 
pairs successfully nest in Florida 
each year. In 198 1 , 359 pairs es- 
tablished nesting territories, with 
234 of those nesting and produc- 
ing 368 young. Considering the 
known number of breeders and 
the probable number of subadults 
(eagles do not mature until 4 

years of age), Florida's total 
eagle population probably ex- 
ceeds 1,500 birds. 

The Florida Game and Fresh 
Water Fish Commission has been 
conducting annual aerial surveys 
of the state's eagle breeding 
population since 1973, and re- 
sults of those surveys to date, al- 
though still inconclusive, at least 
indicate the population is either 
fairly stable or declining slowly 
in number. Threats to bald eagles 
in Florida include land develop- 
ment projects which encroach on 

year after year, or they may have 
two nests for use in alternate 
years. Each year they add on to 
the existing one. A new nest will 
measure about five feet outside 
diameter by two feet in height. 
One nest I observed in Charlotte 
County, Florida, was about eight 
feet wide at the widest point and 
almost 1 1 feet high, the product 
of many nesting seasons. 

In Florida egg laying begins in 
December and January, while up 
here in Tennessee a little later in 
March and April. The eggs 
number on the average two, 
rarely are three produced. These 
are laid at intervals from three to 
four days. The eggs are usually 
small for such a large bird. The 
egg is rough or coarsely granu- 
lated. They are dull white and 
unmarked. Incubation is by both 
adults, taking about 35 days.

The noise of the bus was 
aboui all I heard as [he engine 
roared and the driver went 
through (lie gears accelerating 
down (he road toward Port of 
Spain. Trinidad. I was visiting 
my wife's parents in Trinidad 
and we were going on an 
excursion into Port of Spain on 
the bus. Given the heavy 
iraffic and the fact thai the bus 
iraveled on a special road, the 
Trip to the capital city would 
lake only about 15-20 minutes. 
I looked around at the passen- 
gers, seeking to take in all the 
different sights and sounds 
thai confront one in a country 
one has never visiied before. 

Everyone was quiet-only the 
sound of ihe engine could be 
heard as everyone looked 
siraighi ahead-lost in their 
own world of thought . No 
doubi most were thinking 
aboui whai errands they had 
to do in the city. It was rather 
like the experience of riding 
an elevator. Everyone is quiet . 
looking at the closed elevator 

door or the floor numbers as 
they flash by, and you feel a 
bit embarrassed talking to 

1 gave my seat to a woman 
who entered the bus and from 
my standing position I could 
see more clearly the sights out 
of the window as we sped 
ihrough the countryside. Sud- 
denly the silence of my reverie 
was broken. "Greetings, 
friends ! " a woman seated 
directly behind my wife spoke 
in clear ringing tones. "I am* 
glad to be able to talk to all of 
you today." What is going on? 
Doesn't this woman feel any 
embarrassment at invading 
the private sound space of 
everyone on the bus? "Today I 
want to tell you about how 
Jesus Christ died for you. 
HallelujahJ ' ' she continued 
with measured voice. 

I looked around to observe 
the reaction of other passen- 
gers. Most portrayed no re- 
action whatsoever and ap- 
peared totally oblivious to this 

impromptu sermon. There 
was one young man just one 
step from me who did seem to 
squirm a bit as she continued. 
"The Bible is the book all 
need to read. It tells us to 
repent from evil ways and to 
turn from sinful lives." She 
rarely paused for a moment. 
It was as if she were reading a 
script though there was none. 
Without hesitation she con- 
tinued to quote scripture and 
appeal for changed hearts as 
the bus rolled to Port of Spain. 
I found nothing in- what she 
said I coi 

Is this 

country? I thought as I con- 
tinued to observe the lack of 
audience response to her 
remonstrances. The bus rolled 
to a stop to pick up some more 
passengers as the voice of this 
woman continued to roll 
through the bus. 

A woman got on the bus who 
was not prepared to listen to a 
sermon and so as the call for 
repentance from drunkenness 

was heard, she made a humor- 
ous remark to the stranger 
(hat she had just taken a seat 
by. Laughter rippled from the 
front of the bus. Other disap- 
proving remarks followed and 
more laughter came from the 
front of the bus as other 
passengers joined in. It was as 
if some of the tension was 
broken and other passengers 
now felt free to speak up. The 
young man close to me who 
had seemed a bit tense and 
nervous as the words of the 
sermon reached his ears be- 
gan to relax and join in the 
pejorative remarks and jokes 
that were being made about 
the lady and her sermon. 
Not oblivious to the remarks 
being made about her the 
content of the sermon shifted 
to focus on "sinners who 
would make fun of the Gospel 
and people who were full of 
sin." The level of laughter and 
ridicule increased as we pulled 
into the destination bus stop in 
Port of Spain. The lady who 

had entered the bus to be 
greeted by the impromptu 
sermon and the sermonizer 
got into a bit of argument as 
ihey exited the bus. The one 
feeling that she was being 
unjustly accused of being full 
of sin by the other. 
And so we made our way 
ihrough the streets of Port of 
Spain and I wondered about 
communicating the Gospel, 

Today I think of Jesus' last 
words to his disciples "you 
will be my witnesses" 
1:8), and I hear the v< 
the angel speaking 1 
"Go, stand in the temple 
courts, and tell the people the 
full message of this new life. ' ' 
(Ads 5:20)And I hear the Lord 
lell Paul (Acts 18:9), "Do not 
be afraid; keep on speaking, 
do not be silent. For I am with 

And I wonder.

InAA every team has at least 
one loss which is very unusual 
for so early in the season. Top

flawless 43 point perfo

that Obrian had the team to

of an undefeated season for 
Botimer ended with a 10 point 
loss to Vogel on Sunday. Vogel 
contributed 31 points to lead 
his team to victory, while 
Botimer scored 35 for the 
losers. In other AA league

two close decisions, losing by 
two points to Vogel, and 
edging out Koliadko, making 

his record 1-1. 

In A league only Cain and

through Sunday, the 16th. 
Cain beat Johnson quite

Manzella defeated Dubois and

Making my monthly pilgrim- 
age up to the Accent office for 
the siaff meeting, I found only 
Ken. ihe editor, there. 
-Where is everybody?" I 
asked. "Oh." he shrugged. 
■■They knocked off for ihe 
weekend. The reporters just 
handed their stories in. Want 
to read a few?" He handed 
over a sheaf of papers. The 
headlines sounded dubious. 
-Food Found in C.K." "Dean 
Evans Swears Off Golf for One 
Week." "Mercantile Book 
Scam Uncovered." Actually, 
that last one just might be 
good stuff. 

•'What else is new, Ken?" 
"Well," he yawned, "We've 
just finished tallying up last 
semester's Accent poll. You 
remember. We asked the 
students what their favorite 
Accent feature was." 1 perked 

up. This should be easy-a 
breeze. "So, what were the 
results, Rozell old boy?" 
"Well...." he hedged. Aw, 
c'mon Ken. How high did the 
Cynic score?" He cleared his 
throat. "The number one fea- 



1,500 votes (louder), was Gar- 
field (cymbals?). But don't 
worry — you got four votes. 
Three look like your hand- 
writing, though." Livid, I 
snatched his tally sheet. It 
was clear: Garfield was No. 1. 
Why that obnoxious orange 
ball of fur... "Say," asked 
Ken, "I wonder who gave you 
that one vote not in your 
handwriting." "I used my 
other hand," I snapped. 
Ken tried to console me. 
"Hey, don't take it so hard. 
Here, take a look at some 
manuscripts I'm writing. This 

one should be good: "My 
Brush With the Law: The 
Greg Wheeler Story." I got 
another: "Drama in Real 
Life: Four Years in 
Collegedale." Good reading, 

Ignoring him, I tried to figure 
out a strategy. "Look, Rozell. 
This paper isn't big enough 
for the borh of us. Either he 
goes, or I go." "Well Vic, 1 
guess this is goodbye." 
Amazed, I shrieked, "Why 
can't he go?" In a steady voice 
he told me. "Do you have 
claws? Look, why don't you 
invite him over for dinner. 

Maybe you can discuss this 

veg, I'd have him over as din- 
ner." "C'mon Vic. I'll call him 
now, allright?" "Affright." 
His limo parked out front, I 
greeted him at the door. I 

shook his paw vigorously. 
"An honor. Mr Garfield, a 
real honor." Yep, I could feel 
those claws. "Please step 
inside Mr. Garfield. Would 


You must be tired after your 
trip." With a bored look, he 
said. "No thank you, I brought 
some extra copies of your 
articles." I tried to change the 
subject. "I didn't know what 
you'd like, so I got a little of 
everything. Chef's Blend? 
Crave? Purina?" He stared. 
don't have any!" "Then," he 
flicked his tail, "I'm leaving." 
Now I was MAD. "Listen 
fatso, I might as well tell you. 
Get out of the Accent. You've' 
got every paper in the country, 
but the Accent's mine." He 
snickered. Maybe 1 should 
insult him? "You look pretty 

stupid with half-closed eyes." 
"You look pretty stupid with 
four." Hmm, that didn't work. 
Maybe I'll intimidate him. 
"Who's ever seen an orange 
cat?" "Who's ever seen a 
Ukrainian?" This cat really 
belts them low. Maybe I 
should scare him. "Wanna 
start losing nine lives?" He 
stretched and his claws made 
pinging noises as they flicked 
out. "O.K." Terrified, I got 
on my knees. "Please, Mr. 
Garfield, won't you at least 
slay off my page?" With a 
benevolent look, he nodded. 
"I'll talk to Jon and Odie." 

Relieved, I showed him to the 
door. As his limo drove away, 
I couldn' t help but think of 101 
uses for a dead cat, Vol. II.

Senate votes 

The 8th Senate meeting of 
the school year was character- 
ized by lively discussion on 
many topics. Brent Van 
Arsdell opened the meeting 
with an interesting devotional.' 

Senate excused absence 
requests from several sena- 
tors, then Joe Robertson read 
a veto from SA President 
Alvin Franklin of Reg Rice's 
absence from last week. 
Senator Rice was excused 
from the senate for a basket- 
ball game. The senate did not 
override the veto. 

Lorie Coston gave the second 
reading of the Senate Project. 
The original proposal called 
for the purchase of four IBM 
Selectric typewriters at $828 
each, the installation of a 
water fountain by the tennis 
courts for $900, and the instal- 
lation of more bookshelves for 
the cafeteria at the cost of 

Senator Coston added that 
the sale of old typewriters 
would bring in $550 and with 
the addition of the $4000 
budgeted for the senate pro- 
ject, this would be within $62 
of the budget. 

Mike Palsgrove moved that 
the Senate list the priorities in 
which the projects should be 
executed. Palsgrove suggest- 
ed the typewriters be the first 
priority, shelves second, and 
water fountain third. 

The Senator then gave much 
discussion about the priority 
system. Vice-President Joe 
Robertson suggested that the 
Senate consider adding ceiling 
fans to the Senate project. 
J.T. Shim, the sponsor of the 
water fountain bill, questioned 
why the report was being 
challenged. Despite the oppo- 
sition of Shim and others, an 
ammendment to add the ceil-

Terry Shaw read proposed 
changes in the SA Constitu- 
tion. The major changes 
focused on the percentage of 
signatures necessary for a 
recall election from 7 percent 
to 15 percent of the voters. 

The new constitution was 
accepted unanimously by the 

Mark Bolton next presented 
the election committee report 
on suggested changes in the 
Elections Manual. Bolton 
briefly discussed some of the 
changes before a discussion 
on some aspects of the manual 
divided the Senate into a few, 
small ad hoc committees. The 
main changes in the manual 
concern the qualifications for 
the SA Senate. The 9 '/a week 
attendance requirement at SC 
was dropped as was the 
necessary GPA. 

The biggest change came in 
the way the general elections 

will be held. In the past, if 
more than 2 people were 
running for a job and one 
person did not receive the 
required percentage of the 
vote, runoff elections were 
held. As it stands now, 
primary elections will be held 
to decide the qualifiers for the 
general election. One inter- 
esting twist has been added. 
The results of the primaries 
will be known only to the SA 
President, Vice-President, 
and the SA sponsor. 

After more discussion ( 
subject, Ken Bradley made a 
motion to accept the Elections 
Manual, while tabling a para- 
graph on special elections 
which conflicted with the just- 
passed constitution. 
J.T. Shim presented a short 
report on coming changes in 
the phone system, and Joe 
Robertson closed the meeting 
with a reminder of the Valen- 
tine's Banquet coming up and 
asked the senators to promote 
the event as much as possible.

E. A. Anderson Lecture Series. 
Ms. Van Derbur received the 
1980 Speakers Hall of Fame 
Award and has been named

topic tonight is "You CAN Do 


Ms. Van Derbur's public 
career began when she was 
selected as Miss America. 
Since then she has hosted 23 
network television specials on 
CBS and NBC and has spoken 
to business and educational 
groups throughout the coun-

the third meeting of the E.A. 
Anderson Lecture Series. 

"It is with regret that I make 
this report," Elder Neal Wil- 
son, President of the General 
Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists said in response to 
the release of the President's 
Review Commission Report. 
"It is one of the most heart- 
breaking things that I have 
been called upon to share with 
our people." 

The commission investigated 
and reviewed transactions 
between the SDA church and 
Donald Davenport. They 
found that in most cases, 
when church entities were 
owed money by Davenport at 
the time he went bankrupt, 
church policy had been bro- 
ken. In all, 163 names were 
reviewed in such areas as 
conflict of interest, dishonesty 
and incompetence. 

The report and the subse- 
quent investigation may have 
far-reaching consequences for 
the church. The Southern 

Accent has learned that at 
least five Union Conference 
Presidents have been cited for 
discipline and will be inter- 
viewed concerning their 
involvement in the Davenport 

A number of other church 
officals.will also be interview- 
ed and be subject to discipline 
ranging from a private letter 
of administrative disapproval 
and caution to termination of 
denominational employment 
and possible revocation of 
ministerial credentials. 

At this time, no names have 
been released. Sources esti- ^^ 
mate that it may be as long as (^ 
two months before a list of 
persons receiving various 
kinds of discipline will be 
released. General Conference 
officals, however, refused to 
be quoted. One man said,

too mu c h ? 

Chapels obviously serve a purpose. Just because students 
are required to go does not mean that they are mindless 
drabble. At least I thought so, until lately. 

Last Tuesday I dutifully went to chapel to get my needed 
two points, only to find that the scheduled chapel program 
had been cancelled and division meetings were to be held. (I 
lost those two points.) 

This past Tuesday I went to the gym (where I was told 
chapel was to be held) and found very few students there. 
Now it could have been because last week's division chapels 
were held this week instead. It could have been because the 
Senior class was organizing in Thatcher at the same time. It 
even could have been because there was nobody there to give 
cards to the gentlemen who wished to attend or to pick up the 
cards from the women who stayed. 

It was not because time and effort had not been spent on 
providing an interesting chapel program. 

Now, I'm sure that each and every chapel program is 
designed with the student in mind. These programs are 
planned to fit the needs and wants of the student body and to 
help them enrich their minds. Therefore, careful scheduling 
is necessary to accomplish this. But, no matter how or 
why, something comes up and plans are changed. This can 
be unnerving to the student who depends on getting two 
points in at one time. 

I enjoy getting two points at one shot, and so chapels are hot 
a chore for me. But I feel ridiculous when I walk all the way 1 
over to the church and chapel has been cancelled. How come 
there wasn't a sign on the door of the dorm? 

I don't think that we as students are expecting too much 
when we ask to be informed about the changes in required 
programs on campus. 1 think that we deserve that much 
consideration. After all, / pay to go here.

pear Editor, 

Last week as silent, white 
snow covered our campus, the 
thought of a Thatcher- Talge 
snowball fight seemed like a 
great idea. Well it was unti it 
got started. From that mo- 
ment on, there occured a 
strange metemorphasis. 

The silent snow mixed with 
the excitement of the night 
and created within the attend- 
ing students a wild rage. Yes, 
our very own Southern College 
students became like seven 
year-old children during re- 

cess. In their rage of immatu- 
rity, they bombarded the front 
of Thatcher Hall as if it were 
the walls of the Kremlin. 
With careful aim, windows 
were broken, people injured, 
and soon the whole scene 
looked like a riot. An innocent 
snowball fight is one thing, 
but an all out iceball war is 

When the S.A. tried to serve 
hot chocolate, the mob care- 
lessly fired ice balls into the 
crowded area. The cups that 
were set up for the hot 

chocolate, intended f or th 
snowballeres, became ^ 
targets until they felI J* 
ground. ™" 

The purpose of this letter i s 
remind my fellow students 
that we cannot expect to gain 
or keep the respect of the 
Administration as mature col 
lege students if we are unable 
to control ourselves in such a 
small situation as an innocent 
snowball battle.

Frampton performs 

by Moni Gennick 

The Mac Frampton Trio 
performed at Southern Col- 
lege January 22. The concert 
began at 8:00 p.m. in the P.E. 

Frampton surrounded his 
own excellent performance on 
the piano with two very gifted 
musicians. Arthur Mont- 
gomery his percussionist, and 
Tom Cahall, his string bass 
player who also played the 

The evening started off with 
a fast-paced vivacious number 
and commenced with such 
pieces as "I Write the Songs" 
"McArfhur Park," and 
"Rhapsody in Blue." 

A favorite composer and 
performing artist of Frampton 

is Melissa Manchester. He 
played several of her pieces 
including "Come In From the 
Rain" and "Don't Cry Out 

Frampton, Cahall and Mont- 
gomery have been performing 
together for almost ten years, 
since they met back in college. 
Traveling and performing is 
just what Frampton has al- 
ways wanted to do. 

"I'm happy with what I'm 
doing," Frampton said. "It 
isn'i all fun and games, but it 
is all worth it, to do exactly 
what 1 want. There is a great 
amount of freedom as well as 
satisfaction gained from my 
present lifestyle. 

Frampton has put out five 

albums: Ivory Roads, Mac, 
Classic Dimensions, The Bcsi 
of Both Worlds, and one cut in 
1973 that is no longer in 
circulation. Presently he is 
working on a gospel album 
and hopes to produce a new 
wave album in the future. 

Frampton's concert was re- 
ceived with a very positive 
attitude. He put everything he 
had into his performance and 
demonstrated a skill and ver- 
satility that was described as 
absolutely phenomenal.

The Fools 

i satire by Jerry Russell 

Tick me off! Dallas Cowboy 
fans are some of (he most 
immature obnoxious people in 
ihe world. They go around 
chanting "We want Washing- 
ton, We want Washington." 
Then, after they got Washing- 
urn, the Redskins beat Dallas 
so bad that il made their heads 
spin. After the humiliating 
defeat the Redskins handed 
the Cowboys, Dallas fans 
publicly recalled past games 
in which Dallas beat the 
Redskins. They also claimed 
that if their quarterback 
hadn't been hurt, they would 
have won the game. 

Where did this Cowboy fan 

phenomenon get its start? 
Well, one day an obnoxious 
fool started a football team 
(the Cowboys). This team was 
brand new and didn't have 
any fans so that same obnox- 
ious fool called on his only 
friend (who also was an obnox- 
ious fool) to spread the word 
about the Dallas Cowboys to 
all of his friends. Needless to 
say, all of this man's friends 
were obnoxious fools. These 
new fans (fools) spread the 
word to their friends who (you 
guessed it) were also obnox- 
ious fools. By this time there 
were many obnoxious tools in 
the country. So many, in fact. 

that people began calling the 
Cowboys "America's team." 
The little children of all those 
obnoxious fools wore t-shirts 
that said WHEN I GROW UP I 

How ' have Cowboy fans 
changed the course of history? 
If you remember your history, 
you'll recall that it was a 
Cowboy fan from Texas who 
shot President John F. Ken- 
nedy. And two days later it 
was another Cowboy fan from 
Texas who shot the man that 
shot President Kennedy. 

Have you ever wondered 


whether or not it was just 
coincidence that Kennedy was 
shot in Dallas? Well, it seems 
that the President was in 
Dallas for a very big game 
between the Washington Red- 
skins and the Dallas Cowboys. 
It was November and nearing 
.playoff time and this was a 
very critical game for both 
teams. Now, as everyone 
knows, the White House is 
located in Washington D.C. so 
the President was a big Red- 
skins fan. After the game, 
which the Redskins won quite 
handily, an enraged Cowboy 
fan, who felt that a man of 
President Kennedy's stature 

should himself be a Cowboy 
fan, and was seeking revenge 
on the President, shot him. 

Later on that day, yet another 
Cowboy fan made history by 
taking that oath of office to 
replace Kennedy. And what 
did this Cowboy fan do? He 
got us into the Vietnam war, of 
course. It took a hot-tempered 
crook from San Clemente to 
get us out of that one. 

Recently, you may have seen 
signs advertising a fan club for 
those people who would like to 
be fans of the fools (the 
Cowboys). No, thank you. I 
be a fan of an 


s fool.

voters, by a better than 2-1 
margin (55-27), believe 
"Reaganomics" to be a fail-

famous Ringling Bros, and 
Barnum & Bailey Circus will 
entertain children and adults 
alike in the UTC arena on 
February 18-20. 

For the first time in 25 years, 
the circus will attempt to 
prove its "Greatest Show on 
Earth" claim to Chattanooga 
residents. The show will open 
with "the world's greatest 
I trainer", Gunther 

Gebel-Williams, and his 19 
Bengal tigers. 

The Pink Panther has joined 
the circus and will be appear- 
ing on stilts and anything else 
he can manage to bungle. The 
Carrillo Brothers will walk the 
highwire, the Flying Espanas 
will somersault through the 
air, and Dolly Jacobs, 
America's Sweetheart of the 
Circus, will perform on the 
Roman rings. 

Dozens of clowns and beauti- 
ful dancing showgirls will cap

circus. Those who have never

Show on Earth and those who 
want to see it every year will 
be pleased with the show that 
Ringling Bros, and Barnum &

Tickets are available at all

from $6 to $8. For SC

Loneliness: It can be cured 

Dear Feedback, 
No matter what J do, 1 always 
seem to be lonely and depres- 
sed. I try to be friendly but 
nothing seems to work. What 
can J do? 

Loneliness is an attitude of 
mind more than it is a situa- 
tional malady. The attitude is: 
no one cares for me. Everyone 
has his life, and I'm left out. 

It is quite possible for people 
to feel lonely and emotionally 
isolated even in a crowd. 
Loneliness can happen to any- 
one who feels left out, re- 
jected, or not wanted. 
Loneliness can be evidence of 
hidden anger. The lonely per- 
son usually explains his feel- 
ings as, ' 'No one cares for me. 
I try to make friends, but I fail. 
People ignore me. Everyone 
has his own friends." 

The underlying problem is 
that the person is not aware 
that he is angry. This anger 
hinders him from reaching out 
and making friends. 

Loneliness can be acute or 
chronic. Acute loneliness hap- 
pens with an immediate emo- 
tional need for love which is 
not met. When it is met, the 
loneliness goes away. Chronic 
loneliness is a state of mind. It 
underlies most relationships. 

"A man that hath friends 
must show himself friendly" 
(Proverbs 18:24). The lonely 
person finds it very difficult to 
show himself friendly because 
he is hostile, but many times 
not aware of his anger. If he 
can become aware of this 
anger and try to overcome it, 
he will no longer be lonely. If 
he can admit to his anger, 
either by talking witn someone 
he can trust or writing out his 
feelings, he is on his way to 

Some guidelines for friendli- 

(1) Expect to have . 
don't be discouraged and quit 
being friendly simply because 
there are those who stand 
against you. 

(2) Be real in your relation- 
ships-no role playing, get 
your heart right and real with 
God and man. 

(3) Don't look for perfect 
people-remember that just as 
God is not through with you, 
He is not through with others. 

(4) Share the positive- 
gloom and misery only inten- 
sifies your own loneliness. 

(5) Do something that will 
give a feeling of achievement- 
master a craft, etc. 

(6) Make more social con- 
tact-find a hobby or join a 
club to further an interest. 
Team sports might be what 
you need. 

(7) Spend time with someone 
who will appreciate your car- 
ing. Help a disabled child or 

(8) Assess your loneliness 
honestly. You will very likely 
discover that it exists only in 
your head. 
(9) Begin an attitude de- 
velopment plan in which you 
practice enjoying everything 
you do. 

(10) Take time for beauty. 
Forget your schedule and stop 
for a moment to contemplate a 
great painting or watch young 
children at play. 

(11) Refuse to use up a 
present moment in a hostile 
argument. When you decline 
to argue with someone, you 
teach him that you have too 
much respect for yourself to 
engage in petty bickering. 

(12) Treat yourself and every- 
one you encounter as whole 
people. Accept and enjoy peo- 

ple' just as they are. 

True friends are priceless 
treasures. They are deierrents 
to loneliness. The greatest 
friendship we can have is thai 
between a person and the 
Lord. God can add to any life 
the treasure of friendship. If 
you are lired of your loneli- 
ness, first become better 
aquainted with God and let 
Him enrich your life and 
benefit from knowing Him.

Pastor Gordon Bielz 


I fell asleep the other night 
while reading the Christian 
Yellow Pages and dreamed a 
wondrous dream. I was wan- 
dering about Wall Sireet in 
New York when 1 saw a big 
brass plaie anchored by a 
while doorway, which read, 
Aloe Verily, Inc. 

I entered and was greeted by 
a cheery lady wearing a small 
lapel pin that appeared to be a 
tiny flowering cactus with a 
cross rising out of it. She 

"Pardon me," I said, "I was 
looking for an..." 

"Exciting career in the Aloe 
Verily Corporation?" 

She had taken the words 
right out of my mouth. I felt 
awkward and slow of speech. 
"Yes," I said at last, "could 
you tell me more about Aloe 
Verily? I'm a pretty shy per- 
son and I once tried selling 

New Life Vitamins and didn't 
do so well." 

"Sir," she said, "Do you 
have three friends?" 

I smiled weakly, almost in- 
sulted. "Everybody has three 
friends," 1 said. 

"All you have to do is get 
them together for an Alpha 
Aloe Bible Study. An AABS, 
as we say in the trade!" She 
smiled broadly. 

"Alpha Aloe?" 1 felt foolish 
asking her, for Alpha obvious- 
ly stood for Christ and Aloe for 
the cactus balsam cosmetics 
that were making Christians 
everywhere more lovely. 

"Alpha stands for Christ," 
ihe said excitedly, "And Aloe 




" I said, "I 
have three friends-four when 
they're all in town. I can get 

them together." 

"Good," she said, "Once we 
get them together-after the 
Bible study--we will serve 
them a nice ice-chilled Aloe 
Vitalizer. Then we'll give 
them a Radiant Aloe facial and 
try to sell them New Life 
Aloette Kit, which includes 
their Bible-Alpha cassette 
study tapes to clear the inner 
mind as well as the Aloe Verily 
lotion control and nutrient 

"How much?" I asked. 

"How much for what?" she 
replied, and then went on: 
"My dear, we at Aloe Verily 
never talk about how much 
-money cannot be considered 
in lieu of the total inner and 
outer cleansing of Alpha con- 

"How much will this cost my 
three friends?" 

"Only a few cents per day." 

"For how long?" 

"For three years." 

"What's in this for Aloe 
Verily?" I felt shame in 
asking such a question. 

"The question is not what it 
costs your three friends; you 
see, it could be free for them, 
just as it is for you." There 
was a pause, I thought of 
Harry, Jake, and Bill. Would 
they go for Aloe Verily? 

"Remember," she said, 
"Cleanliness is next to godli- 
ness and Aloe Verily means 

It was a company slogan. 
"How could it be free for 
Harry, Jake, and Bill?" I 

"Well, if they each have 
three friends and agree to 
have an Alpha Aloe Bible 

"Then they get a tall, chilled 
glass of Alpha Aloe Vitalizer 
and Radiant Aloe facial and 

New Life Aloette Kit..." 

"Precisely," she beamed, 
"And you get an override on 
all they sell." 

"Does this mean that if 
Harry, Jake, and Bill's nine 
friends each have three 
friends that I could be swim- 
ming in Aloe Verily?" 

"If Harry, Jake, and Bill's 27 
contacts all buy Aloe Verily

you could eventually be mak- 
ing enough money that you 
could quit going to the Bible

It was a lovely idea but I had 
to ask, "Miss, do you have 
three friends?" 

She hung her head sadly, "I 
used to," she said.

teaching our 6 p.m. classes 
when all of a sudden the lights 
went out (a frequent occur- 
rence in Bandung). Gary and I 
decided to teach some songs 
and finally joined our two 
classes. I taught them Mary 
Had a Little Lamb and You 
Can Smile. The Lord gave me 
a flash of insight, so I ex- 
plained how the nursery 
rhyme Marv Had a Little 
Lamb pointed to Jesus. (I'd 
never thought of it before!) 
Later after class, a student 
came to me and wanted to talk 
about a problem he had been 
off drugs for two weeks and he 
couldn't sleep at night. So I 
'old him how Jesus could help 
him and shared some Bible 
promises. We then prayed. 
These Indonesian people are 
wonderful I wish you all could 
be here. Praise God. He has a 
Place for me here! 

m y Bible students really need 
your prayers. One is Maria, 
fn older lady who really knows 
nee Bible, yet goes to church 
yet on Sunday. Just recently 
she has been totally convinced 
■hat Saturday is the Sabbath, 
and vet she just can't seem to 
make the switch. The second 
one is Christopher, a Catholic 
* n ° is beginning to have 
^estions about some of the 
eachmgs of the Catholic 
urch. He never reads his 

Bible, and yet now he has 
started to become interested 
in doing so. I'd really apprec- 
iate your prayers for them — 
and me. 

Life in Jakarta is going great. I 
love this place. This second 
term things seem a lot more 
organized and we seem to 
know how to handle things 
and what to expect. We had 
one fantastic retreat at Anyer 
Beach. The Lord really spoke 
through Elder Don Williams 
(Far Eastern Academy pastor 
and Bible teacher). My Eng- 
lish classes are great, and 
after only three weeks, I love 
them all. We have started our 
first series of meetings which 
take a lot out of the weekends, 
but the Lord really blesses. 
Some SM's left for home and 
it was hard saying goodbye. I 
can't imagine what it is going 
to be like to leave this place. 
But I can't think in those lines 
for I have 8 more monthsl 
Everyone take care. Keep 
writing-love your lettersl 

began with the closing of a 
door and 21 small faces watch- 
ing me. At times I wish they 
could understand me better, 
but for kindergarteners they 
are catching on fast. I'm also 
catching on to the fact that ! 
need an open line to God all 
the time. It was raining out- 
side one day, so all the flies 

had taken refuge in my class- 
room and the children were 
very distracted. We had a 
special prayer that the flies 
not bother the kids. From then 
on the only ones pestered 
my interpreter and myself. 
The children were finally able 
to concentrate. Praise the Lord 
for small miracles. The Lord 
has given me the patience I 
needed. These kids squirm a 
lot, but I love them. 

this is the first report that we 
SM's from Majuro have had to 
fill out, I figure a brief report 
on this island might be in 
order. Majuro, the capital of 
the Marshall Islands, is lo- 
cated about 2,000 miles west- 
southwest of Hawaii, about 
7® north of the equator. Our 
island is part of an atoll, built 
on a coral reef. The weather, 
of course, is tropical. The 
island itself is about 30 miles 
long and in some places only a 
few • feet wide. Upon first 
arrival, thoughts of claustro- 
phobia are ever present. How- 
ever, since then, I've been too 
busy to even worry about it 
and thus am cured! The 
economic situation is relative-- 
to an American, conditions are 
quite sparse. In comparison to 
a refugee camp in Thailand or 
somewhere, this would seem 
like Paradise Island! (Hi! to 
Henry, Tony, Gretchen, Che- 
rie and the rest from SMC.) 

a graduate of SMC hasn't 
exempted me from typical SM 
problems! Having to repeat 
things over and over is just 
one problem the Lord solved 
for me-with a good case of 
laryngitis. I learned more 
patience, and I learned to 
listen-to my 29 fifth graders 
and to my Lord. One day I had 
a real bummer. It began when 
I left out an entire line in my 
daily text as I wrote it on the 
board. Add 20 extra energetic 
fifth graders, clean laundry 
bunched in a mangled pile 
atop the dryer, a fight be- 
tween a brother and sister 
ending with a rock and blood 
all over from her forehead. 
Then, when I'd had just about 
all I could handle and the bell 
was to ring soon, a boy 
suddenly got sick all over the 
classroom floor! Diligent ear- 
nest prayer and a most under- 
standing friend were my an- 
swers. Never give up, Jesus is 

Three hours after arriving in 
Majuro, I headed for the 
beach with DeAnn and Or- 
linda. Mv visions of a Pacific 
Paradise were a bit startled by 
the scattered trash, but I stU.1 
thought it pretty nice. My 
excitement grew as we snor- 
kled among the tropical fish 
and coral. Then I happened to 
glance back at the beach... 
and shrieked! Two huge pigs 

were wandering at the water's 
edge. "Orlinda!" I gasped. 
"There are pigs here!" Or- 
linda, a Majuro veteran of one 
week merely shrugged and 
said, "Don't worry, they're 
friendly." (Hardly my priority 
concern!) So much for my first 
case of culture shock. Since 
then I've grown to love Majuro 
and even take the pigs for 
granted. I've also discovered 
that instead of me doing 
something for God. it's God 
who is doing great things for 
me. Teaching here is definite- 
ly a unique experience. Prob- 
ably my most memorable day 
occured two days after the 
elementary kids received de- 
worming medication. I was 
complacently teaching math 
when suddenly someone 
shrieked, "Miss Schoonoverl 
A snake!" Turning, I saw Joe 
sitting upright in his chair, 
both hands clamped tightly 
over his mouth, eyes wide 
with shock. There on his desk, 
still writhing, lay an eight- 
inch white worm...! Well, on 
those days when the kids drive 
you crazy, remember that 
"They who wait upon the Lord 
shall renew their strength, 
they shall mount up with 
wings as eagles; they shall 
run and not be weary..

Well! My favorite time of 
year, or one of them, is upon 
us This is that wonderful 
season where almost a dozen 
siudems suddenly raise their 
grades and reputations and 
lower themselves. Overnight, 
[hey make hundreds of friends 
and forget their enemies. 
The Latin term, I believe, is 
excessivi electivi; however, 
the less educated among us 
simply refer to the season as 
"election week". 
Now, a whole week devoted 
to shady political activities can 
raise all kinds of possibilities. 
As fellow students of the 
aspiring candidates, it is our 
job and responsibility to test 
the sincerity of these people. 
Sort of find out what a couple 

of votes are worth to them. 
The situation offers some fan- 
tastic business opportunities; 
if you don't believe me, write 
to Victor Czerkasij. He's not 
really as dumb as he sounds in 
his column. 


ledge those who wish to be in 
the public eye for a year. 
Before you people start your 
campaign, though, you might 
wish to consider some of the 
other offices, the ones you 
don't hear about too often. 
For instance: O.P.C. The 
Official Preppie Checker. This 
person must attend anything 
the president and vice-presi- 
dent do to make sure they are 
dressed appropriately. If he 
spots a fox anywhere on his 

charges, he must shoot it. 

C.I. A. The Cookie Insurance 
Army. Four people occupy 
this position and their sole 
duty is to insure the safe 
delivery of-munchies for cook- 
ie breaks. They also have to 
devise ways to keep their 
closest competition down the 
road out of their territory. The 
C.I.A.'s main complaint last 
year was that this competition 
used false advertising; they 
put pictures of girls on their 
products but on the inside all 
that was found was a cookie. 
This job is quite interesting. 

A.R. Alarm Repeater. 
Though the job definitely has 
advantages, it also has its 
drawbacks. One of them is 
that the A.R. must attend all 

Senate meetings and every 
fifteen minutes, he should 
make rounds and wake every- 
one up. If he doesn't the S.S. 
will be out of work. 

S.S. The Senate Scriptwrit- 
er. This job has a few 
prerequisites: the S.S. needs 
to have a basic knowledge of 
English and all of its dialects. 
Moreover, he should be a 
fairly dull personality without 
much to say. His senate 
scripts will then have all the 
ingredients necessary to flavor 
a Senate meeting; hopefully, 
everyone will be more inter- 
ested in checking the big guys 
for foxes. 

R.D.A. Religion Department 
Antagonist. This job offers 
the highest pay and also is the 

only one to furnish travel 
opportunities. Places such as 
Berrien Springs, Glacier View, 
Angwin and Australia are all 
important stops for the R.D.A.' 
He will as effectively as possi- 
ble misquote, slander and tear 
down the department he 
represents. Every good 

R.D.A. should try to move at 
least one prominent person 
out of his present position and 
into one more precarious. 
This job, too, has endless 
Well, of course these are just 
a few of the easier positions, 
but at least you hopefuls won't 
have to limit yourselves. After 
all, someone will have to do it. 
There are some things we just 
can't do without.

Wagner accepts presidency 

Dr. John Wagner, currently 
Academic Dean at Union Col- 
lege, has accepted a call to 
become Southern College's 
new president. Wagner, and 
his wife Lilya, have worked for 
the SDA denomination for 
approximately seventeen 

years, beginning in 1962 at 
Platte Valley Academy. 

Wagner has also worked at 
Pioneer Valley Academy, 
Madison Academy, and Forest 
Lake Academy, in various 
positions. Some of these 
include Dean of Boys, P.E. 
teacher, Guidance Director, 
Registrar, Vice Principal, and 

Dr. Wagner became an 
Adventist as a result of a 

literature evangelism effort in 
his hometown of Pottstown 
Pennsylvania. "My parents 
were baptized as a result of 
the book Bible Readings for 
the Home, which was purchas- 
ed soon after I was born." 

Wagner went to church 
school, then completed two 
years of public high school 
before continuing his Chris- 
tian education and graduating 
at Shenandoah Valley Acade- 
my. His college years were 
spent at Washington Mission- 
ary College, now Columbia 
Union College, and Atlantic 
Union College. 

Mrs. Wagner was born in 
Estonia and immigrated with 
her family to America during 

the end of World War II, an 
experience which she wrote 
about in "To Linger is to 
Die", a book for young 
people. She met her husband 
at Atlantic Union College, 
where they both graduated 
with B.A. degrees. 

Mrs. Wagner has written for 
several publications and is the 
author of at least two books. 
She has worked in Public 
Relations, as a music teacher, 
as Assistant Director of the 
Teaching Learning Center, 
and is currently teaching En- 
glish at Union. 

Mrs. Wagner will be working 
as an Associate Public Rela- 
tions Director for the Adven- 
tist Health Systems/Sunbelt 

in the Collegedale office. 

Both of the Wagners have 
doctorates from the University 
of Florida (Gainsville) and 
have been at Union College for 
the past two years. 

As to his views on education, 
Dr. Wagner foresees "no 
drastic change in the direction 
of SC", and considers it "a 
strong educational center." 

According to Elder McClure, 
President of the Southern 
Union, and Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees for SC, is 
"very happy" with the deci- 
sion. He stated, "I think Dr. 
Wagner is a strong scholar 
and church leader. He will 
lead the way as he sees best."

I Love WSMC 
Week starts 

WSMC, the radio station for 
Southern College, will be 
sponsoring its annual fund 
raising campaign beginning 
Saturday night, February 5 
and ending the next week. 
This campaign will involve an 
on-the-air pledge drive which 
WI 'l give listeners and sup- 
porters a chance to help the 
station directly. 
Az° al has been set at 
WU,000, up from $27,000 last 
year. This money is intended 
to improve signal transmis- 
sion, retain popular programs, 
and develop new programs 
™at wdl interest the commun- 

The Nation hopes to add 200 
m ore contributors this year, 
not only i n business and public 

support, but also more student 
support. WSMC will be 
promoting world-wide tours as 
a means of raising money in 
addition to the pledges that 
help to financially support the 

Mike Meriweather, Develop- 
ment Director for WSMC, 
estimates that there will be 
approximately 50% inter- 
ruption of regular program- 
ming with 20 to 30 minutes of 
music for every 10 minutes of 

Twenty-three to twenty-five 
percent of WSMC's budget 
comes from this annual pledge 
drive. The rest comes from 
the college and the Corpora- 
tion for Public Broadcasting. 

Elder Gary Patterson, Geor- 
gia-Cumberland Conference 
President and Elder Richard 
Center, Conference Treasur- 
er, were the featured speakers 
at the Collegedale Adventist 
Forum meeting held on Janu- 
ary 29. The two church offi- 
cials gave short presentations, 
and answered questions from 
the audience. 

The biggest issue of the 
afternoon was the Davenport 
affair. Patterson said "there 
will be changes in policies and 
procedures" concerning con- 
ference investments. "We will 
be much wiser in the future 
but this was expensive tui- 
tion." He added that there 
was a good change of "solid 
recovery of funds from Daven- 
port, in significant amounts." 

Despite the anticipated re- 
covery, "some people in Geor- 
gia-Cumberland Conference 
will be disciplined," Patterson 
said. He refused, however to 
get specific on names. The 
General Conference has asked 
us to hold the release of our 
report (on the Davenport af- 
fair) until they release theirs, 
which I think is reasonable." 

The controversy at Ooltewah 
church was also brought up. 
"The situation at Ooltewah is 
not easy to deal with," Patter- 
son said. "The church has 
become very polarized. One 
group of people said they 

would withhold their tithe 
until the pastor at Ooltewah 
was removed. "When the 
other faction at Ooltewah 
heard of this, they threatened 
to withhold their tithe if the 
pastor was removed. What 
was I supposed to do," Patter- 
son asked, "ask each side how 
much tithe they paid then base 
ray decision on those totals? 

"It has gotten to the point," 
Patterson said, "where we 
have denied our gifts and 
made them purchases. When 

people manipulate the tithe, 
they have ceased tithing. 

"The more church members 
pressure the administration 
(of the conference) the longer 
it takes to deal with the 
problem. The church is not 
able to achieve in a single 
bond all the needs... Some- 
times things take a little bit of 

"The church members need" 
to operate within the proper 
bounds of church government. 
Economic pressure is not one 
of them. 

Black History 
Week begins 

Southern College and the 
Afro-American Club are spon- 
soring Black History Week 
from February 7-12. The na- 
tion-wide celebration was set 
aside by the U.S. Congress in 
1929 to emphasize black his- 
tory and culture, according to 
Everett Schlisner, Dean of 

The first program of this 
week will be presented on 
Tuesday by Dr. Frank Knittel. 
Wednesday prayer meeting 
will be presented by Vernaurd 
Mendinghall, youth director of 
the South Atlantic Confer- 

ence. Elder Ralph Peay, youth 
director of the Southern Union 
will present a program at 
chapel on Thursday. Melvyn 
Hayden will speak for both 
Friday vespers and the Sab- 
bath Services. 

Black History Week is a 
relatively new event at South- 
ern College. No blacks were 
allowed until 1964 when the 
Civil Rights Act guaranteed 
equal rights for everyone. The 
first black to attend SMC was 
a village student in 1965, ac- 
cording to Schlisner. Today, 
black enrollment is about 100.. 



2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/ February 3, 1983 

SA on the rocks 

This is the season for SA elections. Campaign posters have 

started appearing everywhere, each asking the voters to vote 

in a particular way. This year, however, things are different. 

The posters are being put up, but r the quantity is smaller. 

Why? The reason is simple. This year 10 people are running 

for the 7 SA offices. 
It appears that the old enemy of a good Student Association 

is rearing its ugly head again. Apathy seems to have taken 
over the student body, draining any energy to participate in 
the very SA that will help shape the future of next year at 
Southern College. And the trend seems to be getting worse. 
A few years ago, four and five candidates ran for many 
offices. Last year, the average was two, with three people 
running unopposed. Now this year, the average is below 1.5 
with Jive people running unopposed. 

Where will it all end? Will the administration finally do 
away with the Student Association as some colleges have? 
Or will the SA just be a figurehead government, with little 
power and even less support? 

The choice is ours. We can sit around and watch our 
student organizations go down the tubes, or we can stand up 
on our feet and take some action. Get out and make logical 
decisions on the candidates for all 7 offices and let the SA - 
know you support them by participating in SA functions and 
SA government. United we stand. Apart, we fall.

Dear Editor, 

Superbowl XVII has come 
and gone and the Deadskin 
fans have proven that they not 
only have the number one 
team, but they are the most 
obnoxious fans around. But 
they have a good reason to be. 
It's not often they have much 
to cheer about. Let's see, 
when was the last time this 
bunch was in the playoffs? 
Could it be 1976 was the last 
time this group of fools, I 
mean fans, had anything to 
cheer about. Seven long years 
stores up an awful lot of 

obnoxiousness, and boy has it 
been running rampant. All 
I've heard since Jan. 23 is 
"how 'bout them skins", and 
"what happened to them Cow- 
boys." What kind of ques- 
tion is that (what kind of 
English is that). I guess the 
Deadskin fans didn't realize 
that even though the Cowboys 
didn't make it to the Super- 
bowl, they have made it to the 
playoffs 16 out of the last 17 
years and have been in the 
Superbowl 5 times. How 
many years have the Dead- 
skins been in the playoffs that 

last 17 years, f 0r that 

how many teams have been in 
the playoffs 16 out of th e a 
17 years. Also, how raany 
times' have the Deadskins 
been in the Superbowl. N 
wonder the Deadskin f ail ° 
hate the Cowboy fans. Thev 
are jealous. I think I would 
hate a team that has domi- 
nated my team for years too.

Dear Editor: 

I just returned from the final 
performance of the Southern 
Players' "Shenandoah." I 
would like to pass on my 
thanks to everyone involved in 
producing what I think was the 
best production of its kind 
presented on this campus. 

As I sat in the audience, my 
mind ran through all the 
different jobs that someone 
had in making the show a 
success. As a Communication 
major, I'm probably biased 
towards the PR staffs excel- 
lent media and advertising 
coverage. The set on stage 
was expertly constructed and 

moved during the perform- 
ance. Thanks to the sound 
crew, and a new microphone 
system, I heard every word 
that was spoken. The cos- 
tumes, makeup, and lighting 
were realistic and tastefully 

Providing the needed 
continuity, the talented group 
of musicians, both instrumen- 
tal and vocal, performed in 
perfect style. 

Obviously, the outcome of 
any show depends largely on 
the quality of the actors. All 
you actors and actresses in 
this show did a superb, pro- 

fessional job. The chore- 
ography was amazing and the 
emotions were genuine. 

Finally, the show could not

"Success in failure 


I by Dick Bird 

is possible to succeed in 
failure," said former Miss 
Africa Marilyn Van Derbur 
I as sne addressed the Southern 
I College student body last 
I Thursday morning in the 
I physical Education Cenier. 

An audience of over 1,000 
I listened intently as Miss Van 
I Derbur, the recipient of the 
I 1980 Speakers Hall of Fame 
| Award spoke on the topic, 
"Success and Failure." 
, Miss Van Debur began her 

■ presentation by reviewing the 
llives of three political figures 

■ who had suffered numerous 

defeats and failures. Accord- 
ing to Van Derbur, it was the 
desire and (he persistence of 
those men that turned their 
failures into success. 

Miss Van Derbur's career 
was catapulted by her victory 
in the 1958 Miss America 
Pageani. After spending one 
year [raveling throughout the 
United States and abroad, she 
reiurned to the University of 
Colorado, where she earned a 
Bachelor of Arts degree in 

of ielevision specials, and has 
appeared as guest commenta- 
tor . in past Miss America 

The wife of a prominent 
attorney, and the mother of an 
11 year old daughter. Miss 
Van Derbur currently resides 
in Denver, Colorado. 

Unlike many of her con- 
temporaries, Van Derbur has 
been successful at maintain- 
ing that trim figure which 
helped her win the title some 
25 years ago. How does she 
do it? "It takes a lot of 
self-discipline, ' ' said the love- 

ly Miss Van Derbur. "It 
means turning down a sweet 
roll or ice cream— I watch 
what I eat, and try to get 
plenty of exercise." 

During an interview with the 
Southern Accent, Van Derbur 
announced the completion of 
30 one-minute television spots 
that will be shown in Atlanta, 
Fort Wayne, Indiana and 
Denver, Colorado. 

The spots will be aired as 
part of the featured program, 
and will be a cut-down version 
of the talks Miss Van Debur 
gives on the topic of motiva- 

tion. They will be a "thought 
for the day", as she puts it. 
Van Debur had presented a 
sample of the television spots 
to ABC's "Good Morning 
America", but was turned 
down. Yet, she believes fhat 
through hard work, sweat and 
some tears, her dream will 

Marilyn Van Derbur's life is 
a testimony of what the Amer- 
ican dream and the Christian 
life are all about. It is working 
and sharing, loving and caring

iThe musical, Shenandoah,

was involved with a few 
important scenes. A few 
members of the Symphony

Many members of the audi-

Stand-by! Quiet on the set! 
Scene 6, take 3 — Roll Tape — 
Action!! These well known 
phrases-may seem like some- 
thing a Hollywood Director 
might say but they were put 
into practice recently by a 
small group of students from 
Southern College. 
The film entitled "Beyond 
the Horizon" is a World War 
II story about a young soldier 
and his first day on the front 
line, as he helps his patrol 
track down an enemy sniper. 
The film, which was directed 
and produced by Michael 
Hadley, a junior History and 
Communications major, is 
only 15 minutes in length, yet 
it cost over $1,300 and over 
1,000 hours was spent plan- 
ning, writting, shooting and 
editing during a span of four 
months. The major of the 
crew and all of the cost was 
provided for by SC students 
The main character of the 
film, Marco Lazine, was por- 

trayed by Frank Roman, a 
senior Communications major. 
"Frank did a terrific job, 
despite the complications we 
ran into on the set" stated 

"We're still in the final stages 
of editing, but the majority of 
the work is done. I'm just 
pleased with everybody 
connected with the film, espe- 
cially Mr. Larry Otto. He 
composed and recorded an 
original soundtrack just for the 
film, and that in itself took a 
lot of effort. The film, 
entirely shot in Columbia, 
South Carolina, took four days 
and over 17 people to com- 
plete." The Communications 
Department paid for the use of 
the school van. The film was 
entered in the National Stu-

Writing a resume 

College graduates are faced 
today with a shrinking job 
market and keen competition 
for what jobs are available. 
They soon discover that it is of 
extreme importance to be able 
to sell themselves in a positive 
way to prospective employers 
in order to have access to what 
jobs there are. 

One of the ways an applicant 
sells himself to a prospective 
employer is through the re- 
sume. The resume is simply a 
vehicle that provides the em- 
ployer with many types of 
information about the appli- 
cant. Its function is to provide 
the employer with a concise 
summary of personal attri- 
butes, educational back- 
ground, and qualifications a 
person has for a particular job. 

The i 


brief but sufficient informa- 
tion which will help a prospec- 
tive employer to know: 
Who you are. 
What you can do. 
What you have done. 
What your present status is. 
What kind of job you would 
What your goals and objec- 

What your special assets and 

attributes are. 

There is no single prescribed 
resume format. If there were, 
everyone would appear stereo- 
typed. And this is what you 
want to avoid. You want to 

come across as an individual 
with unique qualities. Rem- 
member, each resume has 
only 30 seconds to make its 
impression on the reader. Be 
creative but be yourself. 
There are basically two types 
of resume -.Chronological- (the 
style most applicable for new 
graduates) listing the most 
recent work experience first 
followed by all other experi- 
ence first followed by all other 
experience listed in strict re- 
verse chronological order; and 
Functional- focusing on the 
kind of work wanted and 
identifying strengths, skills 
and accomplishments which 
qualify a person for that work. 
Whereas the format chosen 
is personal preference, there 
are general rules that should 
be followed. The resume 
should be neat, easy to read, 
and free of spelling and gram- 
matical errors. Use margins 
and titles, logically arranged, 
to guide the reader. Develop 
separate sections on educa- 
tion, work experience, person- 
al data, and goals in such a 
i enable the reader- 
probably skimming 
me along with many 
get the highlights 

Your re 

should be: 
Typed and spaced properly 
on 8 1/2 x 11 inch size white 

Limited to one or two naees 

in length. 

Brief and to the point, 
incorporating phrases, rather 
than prose and complete sen- 
Complete, containing all in- 
formation relevant to your 
education, work experience 
and career objectives. 

Written in a way to reflect 
your perceptions and abilities. 
Your personality may be as 
important in getting the job as 
anything else. 

Honest. You may be asked 
to document what you say. 

Filled with action verbs to 
describe experience, i.e.: initi- 
ated, created, developed, su- 
pervised, managed, instruc- 
ted, counseled. ..etc. 

Other things to remember are: 
Don't include a photo. You 
risk failing the reader's per- 
sonal standards of beauty. 

Don'1 include reasons for 
leaving previous jobs. 

Don't include references. 
Save references as a backup 
sales force. 

If you would like more infor- 
mation on how to write re- 
sumes, why not plan to attend 
the nest "Resume Writing 
Workshop" conducted by the 
Student Employment Office.

Glenn McElroy, sophomore Business/Pre-Law major, is the 
only candidate for Student Association President and is 
"looking forward to next year, to a new beginning." 

Thoroughly aware of the problems and changes he will be 
facing as SA president, Glenn held a question and answer 
session for student leaders in the cafeteria on Sunday, 
January 30. At the meeting he announced many of his 
objectives for the 1983-84 school year. ' 'My number one goal 
is to see a more positive relationship between students and 
faculty." Other plans he cited were: 1) to check into the 
possibility of extending the front porch of Thatcher Hall; 2) to 
try to raise the additional necessary funds to renovate the 
Campus Kitchen; 3) to work to get a co-ed TV room in the 
Student Center; 4) to try to get co-ed telephones in the 
Student Center; 5) to plan more inter-collegiate activities. 

Having been SA President at Bass Memorial Academy his 
junior year, class president his senior year, member of 
Senate, PR Director for several campus organizations in 
addition to a string of other offices and accomplishments 
Glenn is not a beginner, although his theme is "a new 
beginning." He comments, "Attitudes are changing on 
campus and there is an air of working together now to get rid 
of some of this criticism. We, as students, are tired of it— the 
Southern College put down. I know next year will be one of 
the best year s w-'— 


As a candidate for the office of Student Association Vice 
President, Cary Gregory likes to get involved. "I think the 
main job of the Vice President is to relate to the students and 
get more student involvement. Yet, it is hard to get student 
involvement. So, I believe the only way to get that 
involvement is to be involved yourself." 

Since Cary, who is a Physical Education major from Indiana, 
is Student Service Director this year, he feels that this 
office, along with being on the Senate, has helped him to 
know better the organization of the SA and Senate, how they 
function, and where improvements can be made. With 
reference to Ski Day and the upcoming banquet at the 
Peachtree, Cary stated, "I would like to continue seeing such 
things that involve getting off campus. As Vice President, 
I'd like to assure that some of the programs that were started 
this year will keep going and see that new programs are 
brought about." 

Describing himself as innovative, Cary maintains that the 
main reason he is running for vice president is "to promote 
student involvement and see that the whole program runs 
smoothly and efficiently." 

Student Service 

Running for Student Services Director is John Seaman, a 
sophomoreTheologymajorthat feels that he has "some good 
ideas that can strengthen Student Services. I don't want to 
delineate or do away with current programs that Student 
Services has. I'm in favor of revising and updating what we 
already have." 

John believes that he can do this in various ways. 
Improving the quality fo cartoons that are shown in the 
cafeteria on Fridays is one way. "I plan to be more selective 
in the choice of cartoons," he explains. Better communica- 
tion to the village students is a goal of John's, when there is 
nothing happening at SC on Saturday nights, he would like to 
provide students with a van to different places in 
Chattanooga. He would also like to have transportation to 
the many "approved" functions at Memorial Auditorium and 
UTC. Another idea that John has is to "see several trips 
made into Atlanta on the weekends. It could be an all-day 
'-_ 8 ' Unt !' evenm g and could coincide with a baseball game 
nething. It doesn't have to be one specific purpose. If 
) shop all day, they ( 

John, who has been the Advertising Manager for 
Southern Accent the last two years, believes in a 

one-to-one" communication. "I think that if just one 
person comes in with a suggestion, we should look into it." 

February 3, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 



Vice Presidental Candidate Ken Rozell's goal it "to put the 
students in the SA. Something that the SA touches your life 
every day, whether it's the Joker, theNumerique, the Accent 
or a party or banquet. A good SA will keep all these inputs 

Ken, who is editor of the Southern Accent this year, 
"wants to keep aware." Another one of Ken's goals is to 
make the Senate more responsive to the students and their 
needs. As chairman of the Senate, he would have the 
senators send out newsletters, take polls, and hold meetings 
for their constituents. He feels that the Senate could be a 
better source of student input, and Ken states that he'd "like 
to work closely with the Student Services and Social 
Activities Directors to make and keep the banquets 

Since Vice President is also Chairman of the Publications 
Committee, Ken believes his experience as editor will help 
him in working with the incoming editors. 

Ken stresses, "If I'm going to be the Vice President, I really 
want to serve. I want to keep the program running smoothly 
so the students can get the maximum from this year." 

"I'm running for the office where I can do the most good for 
the most people," states JT Shim, candidate for vice 

Althought this is his third attempt at the vice presidency, 
the junior Compute Science major is not discouraged. 
"Failure didn't deter Abraham Lincoln, and it won't deter 
me," he reminds. "I've studied the office closely and know 
what goes into it, what is expected of it." 

With a numerous list of accomplishments and qualifications 
that include Associate Editor of the Joker, Editor of the 
Numerique, member of the Senate Committee on Senate 
Projects, JT believes that planning is an essential part of 
good leadership. "I plan to have more SA forums to hear 
about what students think and let them know what the SA is 
doing. I'd like to obtain more color cartoons that you can 

"I believe that every chief executive officer needs a good 
man he can delegate jobs too," JT declares. JT wants to be 
that man. 

Southern Accent Editor 

Running unopposed for Southern Accent Editor is Maureen 
Mayden, a Speech Communications major. "Being editor is 
something that I have always wanted to do, and now that I 
have been assistant editor for awhile, I think that it s 
something I would really enjoy," explains the candidate. 

A native Floridian displaced to Virginia three years ago, 
Maureen was a reporter on the newspaper her sophomore 
year was lay-out editor for first semester of this year, and is 
assistant editor now. Besides her work on the paper, 
Maureen has been busy this year as president of Sigma 
Theta Chi (the Girl's Club) and as a liaison for the student 
chapter of IABC (International Association of Business 

"There are not a whole lot of changes that I want to make, 
unless I feel that they need to be made" However, she 
would like to add more features. "I trunk that the paper 
needs to be informative and tell the students what is 
happening on campus, but it also needs to be humorous and 
entertaining. The paper should be something that they want 
to save, not just read and then throw away."

Southern Memories Editor 

i /J 

"I want to do as good of a job as possible," declares 
Stafford Barzey, candidate for Memories Editor. Although 
he considers himself a shy, quiet fellow, Stafford wants to 
use his knowledge of photography and graphics to create a 
"memorable" annual. 

A freshman Compute Science major from New York City, 
Stafford was a photographer on the Memories staff this year, 
and, according to Editor Bridget Knox, was her "right hand 
man— never failing to come up with some fresh, bright ideas 
for pictures or lay-out." 

"I enjoy photography, and as editor of Memories, I will 
simply do my best," promises Stafford. 

Memories Editor candidate, Malinda McKee, wishes "to 
incorporate new ideas" into the annual for next year. 

With two years of experience on her academy yeatbook, and 
as SA Public Relations Director this year, in addition to

The Student Association

on Tuesday to Ski Beech resort 
on Beech Mountain in North 
Carolina. The ski day official- 
ly started for the skiers with a 
check in from 3:30-4:00 am in 
front of Wight Hall. Check in 
was necessary for students to 
get their classes excused and 
to make sure that everyone 
had paid. Approximately two 
hundred students went on the 

The skiiers started as soon as 
possible after getting lift, and 
if necessary, rental passes 
from Alvin Franklin and 
Cynthia Patterson. Those who 
used rental equipment really 
liked it. The boots were 
comfortable, the bindings 
were step in type, and all the 
equipment was in excellent 

Unfortunately the sking 
conditions were not as good as 
the equipment. The weather 
and the slopes started out less 
than perfect and got worse 
'ater in the day. The snow 
base was about fifteen inches 
™ dirt with 1-5 inches of 
packed icy snow covering most 
of the runs. There were 
m °guls in some areas and in 
others there was grass and

the temperature had risen to 
well above freezing and the 
remaining snow was more icy 
and harder to ski on. By 4pm

lowered further to become a 
thick fog that restricted visi-

spite of the conditions most 
students were glad they went.

business. Like, totally! I just love Val Day. Like, I can get 
into those big heart-shaped boxes of candy anytime, ferr 

Like the other day, I was with all my val friends down at SC, 
and I saw this big hairy dude and he was like all over this 
really sweet val, and she didn't even mind! Like, grody to 
the max!! I mean, like, totally! I was ready to gag, but my 
spoon wasn't in my val bag, so like I just turned and looked 
the other way. 

But, like, I'm shurr she really loves him, and she'll probably 
get one of those boxes for Val Dav. I mean like, with 
chocolate-covered cherries, cocanuts, nougat, and creme 
candies or something, you know? I'm sooo shurr! I think I 
would just die if I got one. I mean, can you imagine one of 
those boxes of candy all for yourself? Like gag me with a 
spoon! I would have (o if late all that by myself. But, like, 
I'm shurr my val friends would be willing to go off their diets 
and help me. Ferr shurrr! 

Like, you know, I was buying this really val card for my fave 
dude the other day, and like one of my fave val friends came 
over and was telling me all about her plans for Val Day, but 
like, she doesn't want anyone to know, 'cause she wants it 
to be special for her boyfriend, you know, and she was like all 
excited about this special day for the two of them, and you

Dear Editor, 
What isthe world coming to? 
The Dallas Cowboys go into 
the last two games of the 
season playing for homefield 
advantage and get their tails 
whipped first by a bunch of 
has-beens (the Eagles) on the 
Cowboys' homefield and then 
in Minnesota by a team (the 
Vikings) whose entire point 
total was equaled by a single 
Jets defensive back the week 
before and whose three 
best players were out with 
injuries. Once in the playoffs, 
they pull out wins over the 
Bucs and the Packers in the 
waning moments only to get 
stomped on by the Hogs in the 
NFC Championship game. 
How can this be? It seems 
like only yesterday when the 
Cowboys were winning their 
division (the NFC East) with 
east. Of course, it usually 
didn't do them a lot of good 
because out of their 16 times 
in the playoffs they only made 
it to the Super Bowl five times 

Dear Editor, 
In response to Royce J. 
Earp's letter in the February 3 
Southern Accent. Royce, you 
say that the Redskin fans are 
obnoxious, but what could 
possibly be more obnoxious 
than a Cowboy fan whose 
team has lost! 


Katie Lamb, 

Native Texan, but NEVER a 

Cowboy fan! 

and only managed to win there 
twice. - 
The reason for this, and for 
the Cowboys' present troub- 
les, is quite simple. Since the 
demise of the old NY Giants in 
the mid-sixties, the Cowboys 
have rarely had another team 
< of championship caliber within 
their own division to compete 
with. Sure the Giants, Red 
Skins, and Cardinals each had 
a run at them in the early 
seventies, but that was all. So 
Dallas would either blow a 
team away early and then 
intimidate them or, if a club 
actually played a good game 
against them, the Cowboys 
would just sit on their thumbs 
until the fourth quarter, score 
a few TD's and pull it out. 
Ho-hum. Trouble was that in 
the playoffs, they had to 
compete with teams like the 
Packers, Vikings, Rams, Colts 
and Steelers. Unfortunately 
for Dallas, those teams didn't 
lie over and play dead quite so 

Now things are even getting 
tough on Dallas in its own 
division. The Giants and 
Cardinals as well as the Red 
Skins are playoff contenders 
and are setting their sights on 
the Cowboys. That means at 
least six games a year against 
top-ranked NFL teams. Looks 
like Dallas is finally going to 
have to work for a living!!! 

Actually though, I really 
don't dislike the Cowboys at 
all. In fact, I've a healthy 
respect for a team that can 
win so consistently with a 
minimum amount of effort. 
It's the attitude of some of 
their fans that irks me. I'm 
speaking of those who act like 
their team is America's team 
and the rest of the NFL 
doesn't exist. Well those 
people are eating crow now 
and they'd better get used to it 
because they may have a 
steady diet of it during the 
next few years.

Speeches kick

Alvin Franklin, Student 
Association President, called 
the elections chapel to order 
February 3, 1983. 

The first of the candidates to 
make a speech was Don 
Welch, who is running for 
Mereditor. Welch began his 
speech by reminding the stu- 
dents what a good Joker editor 
Jon Larrabee had been, but 
that he, himself, would even 
be better. Some of Welch's 
goals are: an error-free Joker, 
to put it out in record time, 
and to have every student's 
and faculty's picture in the 

Running for the office of 
Student Services is John Sea- 
man. Seaman claimed that he 
would maintain the cookie 
breaks, Friday cartoons, and 
town trips. Also, he wants to 
establish some new programs. 

Candidate for Accent editor 
is Maureen Mayden. Mayden 
stated that she wanted a paper 
that students would be more 
interested in. More features 
and humor are goals that 
Mayden hopes to accomplish. 

Peggy Brandenberg is the 
candidate running for Social 
Activities. To involve stu- 
dents more by polls and to 
possibly add a "Spring Fling" 
(similar to the Fall Festival) to 
the calender of events, are 
some goals Brandenberg 
spoke of. 

The fifth candidate to speak

declared that he would do his

Pastor Gordon Bielz 

£ary Gregory is one of the 
fee "ndidates running for 

Vice-President. He told the 
students that some of the new 
programs he wanted to estab- 
lish were; a television in the 
Student Center, shopping 
trips to Atlanta and Knoxville, 
and more privileges for resi- 
dents of Thatcher Hall. 

Ken Rozell, also candidate 
for Vice-President, stated, 
"My goal is to put YOU into 
the Student Association." 
Rozell is concerned that the 
Senate be more responsive to 
the student's needs. To do 
this, Rozell suggested hall 
meetings, newsletters, opin- 
ion polls, and surveys be 

"Every President needs a 

hard-working, dependable 
man who knows people and 
systems, behind him, and that 
man is me," claimed J.T. 
Shim, candidate for Vice Pre- 
sident. He also claimed he 
was the man for 1983 

Speaking last was Glenn 
McEIroy, candidate for Pres- 
ident. A "new beginning" 
and a positive outlook for the 
year is McElroy's goal. 
McEIroy told students that the 
school can't have a beginning 
unless the enthusiasm come 

After the speeches, Alvin 
Franklin opened the floor for 
discussion and got no 

In Fenton Forest was a little seed 
That to the rain gave little heed. 
Down in the ground he gave grumble and groan. 
Complaining of the dark and of the big stone. 
1 he stone, you see, was over his head, 
And he thought, "What a dumb flower bed 
To have a stone where I could be 
Where I could rise up and be free." 
He just wasn't going to do his thing, 
Too much against him for this Spring. 
And so in the dark he lay so quiet, 
He wouldn't respond even to the riot 
Of water that about him fell 
Tickling his shell and washing him well 
When the sun shone so high and so warm 
He just pulled in tighter within his dorm. 
"Too many troubles," was his reply, " 
' 'Look at that rock on 'op of my lie 
Way too heavy for me to lift! 
Why I couldn't even make a rift 
In the soil above my depressing lie 
I'd just rather turn over ai.d die." 
And so the seed with all its potential, 
Just complained while the rains were torrential. 
Somehow a message to the seed must be taken 
Of the joys of the sun, if he would just awaken. 
The message was carried by one special seed. 
He was an outstanding one, unique to his breed. 
He came to the seed still in the ground. 
He told him of the new life he'd found. 
The message was sent loud and clear, 
"Bloom where you're planted, there's nothing to fear." 
"Bloom where I'm planted," the seed contemplated. 
Is it really true that for this I have waited." 
A little water of life he timidly accepted, 
On what it did inside him, he reflected, 
Was hard to explain in any natural way. 
It seemed like only attitudes were passing away. 
"Not so bad," to himself he did muse. 
"I'll take some more, got nothing to lose." 
As soon as he did his shell began breaking, 
His whole seed body was now really shaking. 
Suddenly with an explosion of power, 
He felt himself shoot up like a tower. 
The boulder he once had on his head, 
Rolled to the side of the flower bed. 
The sun broke full in his opening face, 
He felt he belonged to the flower race. 
He breathlessly viewed other beautiful flowers 
Ones that like him had risen like towers. 
With a cry of delight his voice echoed loud, 
"Bloom where you're planted — don't be so proud!" 
So by our story you can easily tell, 
The point of the rhyme is to stay out of hell. 
Appreciate the light and warmth you find. 
Don't allow the rocks to occupy your mind. 
Live like Paul who rested content, 
Whether in prison, or under his tent. 
Remember Joseph who in bad times and good 
Trusted in God who understood. 
Don't let your vision by others be slanted, 
Be content in God, and BLOOM WHERE YOU'RE PLANTED!

As basketball season enters 
the final stretch at SC, pre- 
season predictions have long 
since been abandoned as 
many surprises have 


In AA action, after a very 
slow start, Koliadko has put it 
together to fashion a four- 
game winning streak. This 
has pulled him up to a 
respectable 4-4 standing. 
O'Brien has also been some- 
what of a surprise as he holds 
a tie for first with a 5-3 mark. 
Vogel, the only team not a 
surprise has a 5-3 record to 
share the lead with O'Brien. 
Bovell and Botimer have not 
lived up to their prediction as 
both share the cellar with a 3-5 

Saturday night, Jan. 29 
Koliadko edged out Bovell by 
a 68-65 margin. Koliadko led 
all scorers with 23 and Eric 
Mock threw in 17 in the losing 
effort. After a 2-0 start, 
Bofimer's team has met hard 
luck. Sunday morning the 
30th, Vogel narrowly escaped 
defeat at the hands of Bot imer 
as they came from behind in 

the closing seconds to wrap up 
a 1 point victory, 69-68. Vogel 
and Ron Bunch continued 
their dominance of the offen- 
sive end by tossing in 18 
apiece, while Botimer scored 
23 for the losers. Monday 
night Bovell and O'Brien 
squared off with Bovell 
emerging the victor. Eric 
Mock shot an electrifying 13- 
18 from the floor to lead the 
winners with 26 while O'Brien 
tossed in 28 in the losing 
effort. On Wednesday night 
Vogel and Koliadko met for 
what appeared an easy win for 
Vogel as they held sole pos- 
session of first place. But this 
was not to be as Koliadko 
came away with a convincing 
72-59 decision. While Vogel 
couldn't get any help from his 
team offensively, Koliadko 
didn't need any as he scored 
an awesome 36 points includ- 
ing two 3-pointers. Thursday 
night Bovell and Botimer met 
with Botimer's team finally 
getting on track to post a 75-68 
victory. Greg Carlson came 
alive to score 20 for Botimer 
with Bob Mountain adding 16. 
Sunday night, Feb. 6, the 

battle for first place between 
Koliadko and O'Brien took 
place with O'Brien emerging 
the victor. Koliadko couldn't 
seem to get things going on 
offense with the services of 
top pick Evan Easley missed. 
Daryl Hevener led the losers 
with 16 while Colt Peyton 
scored 19 for the winners. 
With just one week to go in 
AA, only two games separate 
first place from last place. 
The outcome of the league is 
still up for grabs as Vogel, 
O'Brien and Koliadko still 
have a shot at the champion- 
In A league action, Manzella, 
Hobbs, Tunnell and Cain each 
have one defeat to keep them 
in the chase for the league 
championship. The big sur- 

prise in A league would have 
to be Greenlee's performance, 
or should 1 say lack of 

The B league race never 
materialized as Duff has taken 
control retaining the only un- 
defeated status in the intra- 
mural leagues. Their last 
performance was a sixty point 
trouncing of Hadley aided by 
the 40 point effort of Duff. 

In the Women's league, 
McQuistan and Laurencell 
share the lead with one defeat 
apiece. Both teams have fairly 
good depth. 

Balloting for the annual Rees 
Series has started as the guys 
from all three leagues are 
selecting the top six stars in 
their respective classes. The 
Rees Series is SC's annual

February 17 and 19, promises 
to be as good as ever. No class 
appears to have a real edge 
although the Seniors would 
have to be considered the 
favorites as they vie for their 
fourth consecutive title. This

Alas, it's here again. That 
famous day of half-naked little 
men (no, I don't mean one of 
Talge's notorious toga par- 
lies), broken hearts and 
spilled sentiments has arrived 


never fully understood. To 
begin with, what is there to 
celebraie? Two poor guys get 
beheaded and people start 
using their last name as a 
synonym for love. 
This really doesn't make a 
whole lot of sense. I mean, if 
ihe president or vice-president 
were shot tomorrow, would 
you ask a future spouse to be 

your Reagan? Or your Bush? 

d venture to say if anyone 
did, chances are that person 
would be the next one to have 
his name immortalized. 

And look at the symbols 
associated with Valentine's 
Day. Back to our martyrs. 
Since they were decapitated, 
and people seem so bent on 
remembering them it only 
seems natural that lace- 
trimmed little heads should be 
the proper tokens of ex- 
change. But no-inslead, 
everything is heart-shaped. 
Now here is a real idiosyn- 
cracy. It's not only stupid, it's 
impractical. I know of only one 

Laurie Loga 

basic way to draw a heart . But 
think how much more personal 
a head-shaped valentine 
would be. You could make it 
as large or as small as was 
necessary to characterize the 
recipient, and as round, ob- 
long or egg-shaped as you 
liked. Even a block design 
wouldn't be out of place. I can 
think of several people I'd like 
to send one of Ihe latter to 
One of our customs with 
every holiday is to associate a 
famous personage, usually a 
saint, with that dav. St. Nick, 
St. Patrick, St. Turkey-all 
have their rightful place on Ihe 
calendar. And on February 14. 

St. Valentine should technical- 
ly be ihe one adorning Ihe 
cards and candy boxes. Bui 
again, someone goofed. All 
we do is use the poor guy's 
name. For a person represent- 
ative of holiday we display a 
rosy-cheeked toddler who, 
clothed only in a droopy 
Pamper, lears around on a 
gossamer wings and plays 
William Tell. Instead of being 
horrified, people compliment 
the little monster ou his 
marksmanship and actually 
Ihink he's cute. In fact, he's 
become almost a permanent 
fixlure in Thatcher Hall. 
Obviously Ihe day has some' 

real problems. I personally 
Ihink il should be eliminated. 
Possible il could be replaced 
wilh a historically significant 
day like one where everybody 
slaved home from the movies 
for Ihe entire day. Si. Schlis- 
ner would be honored, and we 
could still use a little guy with 
the bow and arrow. Actually, 
that would be quite fitting. I 
think the Pamper would pro- 
bably have to go, though. 
In the meanlime, please 
don't feel like a total idiot for 
celebrating something you 
don't even understand. At 
least you'll liven up Ihe month 
for a little while.

use the condition of the econ-

Reagan replied, "Yess,

about chances for a recovery

into infernos, killing 20 people 
and injuring 70 more. A 
Christian radio station later 
received a call claiming that 
the right-wing Front for the 
Liberation of Lebanon from 
Foreigners was responsible 
for the bombing. Although 
police doubt the call was 
legitimate, the bombed build- 
ings are owned by Libya and 
Ihe PLO and authorities 
suspect the bombing is in 
retaliation for Libyan leader 
Moamar Khadafy's call for the 
conversion of Lebanese 
Christians last month.

meeting as of yet. 

Charles B. Johnson single-

Israeli tanks from entering the

last week. According to the 
Defense Department, when 
three Israeli tanks tried to 
enler the US zone, Johnson 
loaded his pistol, climbed 
aboard Ihe lead tank and told 
the Israeli lieutenat-colonel 
that if he continued it would 
be over Johnson's "dead 
body." The incident is part of

was famous for smash-hits 
such as "Rainy Days and - 
Mondays," "Close to You," 
"We've Only Just Begun," 
and "For All We Know," had

nervosa but was thought by 
friends to have recovered. An A 
autopsy failed to reveal a 
cause for the heart attack that 
killed a woman who "was both 
an extraordinary performer 
and an extraordinary lady," in 
the words of American Band- 
stand host Dick Clark.

The reasons for wanting a 
change fell into two distinct 
groups. One group compris- 
ing about one-fourth of the 
respondents, wanted a return 
to the former Southern Mis- 
sionary College. This group 
felt proud of the original name 
and believed that a change 
would bring back the religious 
connotations so often omitted 
with the current name. 
The other group, comprising 
about one-half of the sample 
wanted a change because they 
found the name either too 
long, unimaginative, common 
and confusing or a potential 


employment either

Graduates showed preference 
to a more religious name with 
one-fourth writing in Southern 
Missionary College and about 
one-half choosing names with 
the word "Adventist" includ- 
ed. One-fourth or graduates 
did choose the non-religious 
Southern College. 
Romero recommended the 
name Richards College be- 
cause "Richards College (was) 
the only type of name that 
provides a suitable solution to 
the major problems" of being 
too religious or too common. 
"Richards College represents

New hospital proposed 

Adventist Health Systems/ 
Sunbelt is planning construct- 
ion of a 12.7 million-dollar 
acute-care hospital on Apison 
Pike in Collegedale. Accord- 
ing to Don Welch, president of 
AHS/Sunbelt, an application 
for construction of the pro- 
posed 76-bed facility has been 
filed with the Tennessee 
Health Facilities Commission 
in Nashville. 

"We have always wanted a 
hospital near Southern Col- 
lege," Welch told the South- 
ern Accent. "In the past, this 
wasn't feasible but the area is 

The application to the Health 
Facilities Commission cited 
significant growth in target 
population within the next ten 
years as justification for a 
Collegedale-based facility. 
The application stated that 
most people within the target 
area of Ooltewah, College- 
dale, McDonald, Apison, 
Ringgold, Ryal Springs,! 
Summit and surrounding 

reach a hospital 
in less than twenty or thirty 

Assuming that the state com- 
mission approved the hospital 
application, construction is ex- 
pected to begin immediately. 
Welch, however, emphasized 
that the opening of the hos- 
pital is a ways off. 
The hospital will be divided 
into 28 private and 48 semi- 
private rooms and will be 
affiliated with Southern Col- 
lege's Division of Nusing and 
other paramedical program. 
Features of the hospital will 
include a complete emergency 
room, a surgical suite with two 
fully equipped operating 
rooms and a cystoscopic 
operating room and a six-bed 
intensive care/coronary unit. 
Also proposed are complete 
physical and respiratory ther- 
apy facilities, laboratory and 
pharmacy, electrodiagnostics 
and a provision for community m

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/February 17, 1983 

Just ordinary people 

For most of my life, I have held the church and its officials in 
awe. I heard stories throughout grade school and academy of 
the wonderful ways God leads church officials. I almost got 
the feeling that if someone was a church official, they had 
been appointed by God — through a committee, of course to 
lead the church and its members down the straight and 
narrow right through the pearly gates. 

It seemed that church publications drove that point home in 
a very vivid manner. The Review and Herald gave all those 
exciting reports from the field about this pastor doing this 
great thing and that administrator accomplishing some 
exciting feat. The "official church organ" never seemed to 
report anything bad so therefore, I assumed, everything was 
fantastic. My opinions of church officials soared higher and 

But there is an old law of natural science that what goes up 
must come down. Several years ago, the first whiffs of the 
Davenport scandal started to surface. When I first started 
reading some of the scandal sheets, I laughed. They made 
interesting reading, but I assumed some poor sould had an 
axe to grind so I put those thoughts out of my mind. Then 
more reputable publications uncolvered evidence concerning 
the Davenport investment. The faint smells became 
stronger. The house of cards fell when Davenport went 
bankrupt about a year ago. 

This incident had a profound effect on many church, 
members, including myself. We began to realize that the 
church officials were not infallible. They could be rude, 
corrupt, incompetent and inefficient, among other things. 
Finally, with the change of editor at the Adventist Review, 
the church started coming down to earth. Church officials 
begin to admit that problems existed in the church. They 
started facing the issues and letting church members know 
what was happening. 

Today, church members can realize that church administra- 
tors are not perfect — they are ordinary people who can make 
mistakes. But they are doing their best to lead the church in 
these troubled times.

Dear Editor, 

The Black History Week 
Celebration was a success! 
Last week February 7-12, was 
the best week ever sponsored 
by the Beta Kappa Tau club. 
Beta Kappa Tau is the club 
that incorporates the Black 
population on campus and 
every year they plan the 
activities that will take place 
during the second week of 

Beta Kappa Tau invited 
dynamic speakers and 
exceptional musicians to visit 
the campus. The week pro- 
ceeded with speakers such as: 
Dr. Knittel, Elder Vernard 
Mendinghall and Elder Ralph 
Peay, and the music was 
rendered by Chris Hawkins, 

Still Small Voice (sextet), and 
Findlez Watson. This is just 
the apetizer. 

On Friday night the message 
was delivered by Elder 
Melvyn Hayden from Wash- 
ington DC who preached 
about the "Sparrow People." 
Special music was given by 
the Ebenezer SDA Choir from 
Philadelphia, PA who arrived, 
in spite of the dangers met in 
Virginia, because of inclimate 

Dessert was served all day 
Sabbath in the form of Elder 
Hayden who spoke again, but 
this time he spoke about 
"Loneliness." The Oakwood 
Aeolians rendered music for 
Sabbath Service and they were 
featured in sacred concert 
during meditations Sabbath 

Beta Kappa Tau did an 
excellent job with church 
services and dorm worships 
under the direction of their 
president, Elissa M. Austin 
and sponsor, Dr. Lorenzo 
Grant. Ms. Austin, Dr. Grant 
and all of the students and 
faculty who worked with them, 
need to be commended on a 
job well done. Keep up the 
good work!

by Dick Bird 

The 13th annual Rees Series 
basketball tournament begin: 
tonight at 7:00 in the Physical 
Education Center. 

The series is a tradition at 
Southern College that began 
in 1971 through the efforts of 
Men's Club President Don 
Pate and Dean Lyle Botimer. 
According to Botimer, "We 
wanted to make it (the tourn- 
ament) a spiritual emphasis, 
not just a sporting event." 
The Rees Series has since 
become one of the most popu- 
lar events of the school year. 

It was named after Dr. C. N. 
Rees, who served as college 
president from 1958 through 
1967. An avid sports enthusi- 
ast, it was fitting that Rees be 
honored in that way, for he 
had done much for the devel- 
opment of the sports program 
at SC. 

The original tournament 
format consisted of a best-of- 
three game series between the 
dorm and the village. This 
was made possible due to a 
large enrollment of village 
students, and proved to be 
quite a rivalry, as each team 
won three times. Then in 
1977, the series format was 
changed to a contest between 

Until Rees' death in 1976, he 
attended many of the games, 
though he was paralyzed from 
a stroke. He was always 
accompanied by his wife Fae, 
who served as Associate Dean 
of Women, and was greatly 
loved by those associated with 
the college. 

Tonight the Freshmen meet 
the tournament-favorite 

Seniors who will be trying to 
win an unprecedented fourth 

straight title. The Sopho- 
mores meet the Juniors in the 
second game. 

The tournament will con- 
clude on Saturday night at 7 
pm with a consolation game 
between tonight's losers, 
followed by the championship 
game at 9. 

Following the games, the 
coaches -and officials will 
select an "All Tournament 
Team" in addition to the 
"Most Valuable Player" of 
the tournament. The champ- 
ions will be presented the 
Rees Series trophy. 

The Seniors, coached by 
Matt Nafie, will be led by last 
year's MVP David Botimer 
and jumping John O'Brien, 
who were first and third in 
scoring during the regular 
season. Mickey Abbott, Bruce 
Coston, Al Franklin, Daryl 

Hevener, Eric Mock and Kelly 
Pettijohn round out the Senior 

The Juniors, considered by 
some to be the darkhorse of 
the tourney will be led by their 
6-9 captain Bob Mountain and 
veteran Evan Easley. Al Cain, 
Greg Carlson, Greg Culpep- 
per, Lowell Ferguson, Tim 
Jennings, and Pat Williams 
make up the remainder of the 
squad. Steve Jaecks will 
coach the Juniors. 

The Sophomores, led by the 
trio of Rob Bovell, Dan Koli- 
adko and Steve Vogel will rely 
on speed and outside shoot- 
ing. Though they lack the size 
of some of their opponents, 
they have a scrappy team and 
could make up for it with 
aggressiveness. Steve 

Decker, Steve Flynn, Bruce 
Gibbon, Mike Gentry and 

Barry Manzella round out the 
Sophomore squad. They will 
be coached by Ted Evans. 

The Freshmen lack experi- 
ence, and will rely on the 
efforts of Colt Peyton, Al 
Pearson, Wes White and 
Steve Carlson. It will take a 
near flawless effort for their 
squad to reach the finals. The 
remainder of Coach Michael 
Meriweather's team are 
Carlos Colon, Dave Ferguson, 
Clint Parrish, and Randy 

The action will start at 7 pm, 
with Southern's finest basket- 
ball players on display. The 
opening tip, the cheers of the 
fans, and (he sounds of the 
whistle are only moments 
away.. .it's tournament time! 


Aeolians sing 

by Leanne Facundus 

The Aeolians, the 62-mem- 
ber touring choir of Oakwood 
College, presented an after- 
noon concert of Negro spirit- 
uals at Southern College on 
Saturday, February 12. Invit- 
ed by Beta Kappy Tau,- the 
Afro-American Student's Club 
of SC, the choir sang for SC's 
Black History Week. 

Singing before a full church 
and wearing their dashakis 
(one of the traditional dresses 
of African countries) ' 'to 
represent the black spirit," as 
Mrs. Julia Phillips, the choir's 
business manager, put it, the 
Aeolians illustrated four types 
os spirituals throughout the 
program. Spirituals such as, 
"Once I'm in His Cafe," 
"Ezekial Saw the Wheel," 
and "Way Over in Beulah 
Land," were sung in the a 
cappella program given in 
order to get the true feeling of 
the music, according to Mrs. 

During the program, Mrs. 
Alma Blackman, the director 
for the past nine years, told 

the story of how she had had 
cancer for the second time in 
1972, yet the Lord had made 
"all things work together for 
good" and had healed her so 
that she might direct at Oak- 
wood. Afterwards, Melvyn 
Hayden, who was on the 
platform as the guest speaker 
for the morning church serv- 
ices when the choir sang, 
remarked, "Because God has 
given this woman an exquisite 
talent, she shares it with the 

In the years that Mrs. Black- 
man has been at Oakwood, the 
choir has toured all 50 states, 
Canada, Bermuda, Romania, 
and is planning a three week 
tour as Friendship Ambassa- 
dors to England, Scotland, 
and Wales this June. 

The Aeolians were asked to 
sing several encores, and 
affected the audience in such a 
way that one SC student 
stated, "I haven't" heard such 
loud "aniens" come out of 
this crowd in a long time." 

Winter slowly wearing itself out (occasional days of brilliant 
sunshine and zephyr breezes remind us that Spring is 
virtually just around the corner); 

All the trappings surrounding Valentine's Day: hearts and 
flowers, candy (expensive and cheap), rows of Valentines in 
the card shops— most of them are purchased and delivered, 
banquets, parties, clever notices and gushing messages in 
the papers, lots of red everything, and, sometimes, even 

Numerous birthdays of great and near-great individuals— 
both past and present — with many raucous versions of 
"Happy Birthday" ringing through the halls enhancing(?) 
the class periods; 

Bright new license plates showing up on cars from Georgia 
(green numerals and letters on white background) and 
Tennessee (blue letters and numerals and green state names 
on white background) replacing, at last, what we've had for 
the last six or seven years; 

Basketball approaching its frenzied climax — it takes a sports 
and mathematical genius to keep track of the standings, 
play-offs, leagues, schedules, and other intricate details; 

Students experiencing rude intellectual awakenings (ap- 
proaching catatonic shock) as the mid-term 
bearing down upon them, but, also, uncontrollable joy 
they contemplate Spring Vacation with its "free-at-la: 

A short Month!

Bird-watchers head to 

O Florida 

Come Thursday morning, 
Feb. 24, the Ornithology class 
will depart from Collegedale 
and begin a trek of over 2,600 
miles through Georgia and 
Florida. The purpose of the 
trip is to observe as many 
species of birds in their natur- 
al habitat or wintering range 
as possible. 

Beyond that an attempt will 
be made to study ecological, 
geographical and behavioral 
aspects which affect the 
distribution of birds. Florida 
is unique in this respect in that 
is provides hundreds of miles 
of shoreline along the Atlantic 
coast as well as the Gulf 
coast— not to mention the 
amazing and intricate network 
of water-ways, sluggish 
rivers, keys and islands, estu- 
aries and bays that seem to 
encircle the entire state. 
To do so, the class will visit 
such exotic-sounding places as 
the Loxahatchee Wildlife 
Refuge, where they expect to 
spot the Snail (Everglade) 
Kite, Fulvous Whistling 


_Bill Both 

Ducks, Smooth-billed Anis 
and warblers beginning their 
north ward migration; Cork- 
screw Swamp Sanctuary, 
where thousands of Wood 
Storks generally nest, such 
birds as the Barred Owl, 
Swallow-tailed Kite, Little 
Blue Heron, White Ibis and 
numerous birds native to 
cypress swamps; and Sanibel 
Island, famous for its Sea 
Shells, where they will ob- 
serve Osprey, Roseate Spoon- 
bills, Reddish Egrets and 
Man-O-War Birds. 
Of course, the Everglades 
National Park will be thor- 
oughly covered — here birds 
such as Anhingas. wintering 
ducks, escaped Scarlet Ibis, 
White-crowned Pigeons and 
numerous hawks seem to be 
quite tame and easily observ- 
ed. State Parks and Manage- 
ment Areas will also be visit- 
ed. These will include 
Myakka River State Park, 
Cecil M. Webb Management 
Area, Pine Island and Long- 
noat Key. 

The group will be camping 
some of the time, staying in 
private homes and bunking in 
the dorms at Forest Lake 
Academy. Committees are in 
charge of food, setting up 
camp, packing the trailer and 
taking care of telescopes and 
camera equipment. 

E.O. Grundset, the instructor 
and fearless leader, will be 
accompanied by Dave 
Mathewson, Jr., lab assistant 
and native Floridian natural- 
ist, and Dr. Ron Carter, who is 
getting an introduction to 
shore birds in preparation for 
research he will be doing this 
summer on the Olympia 
Peninsula in Washington 

All in all, when the class 
returns on March 6, they hope 
to have sighted over 170 
species of birds, become 
acquainted with a great deal of 
seldom-seen natural areas of 
Florida and surely prove that 
birds have class. ...It's 

ter Ariel Sharon resigned 
under pressure from the Begin 
government Sunday. Sharon, 
however, remains on the cabi- 
net as an at large member, 
prompting sharp opposition 
criticism in the Knesset and a 
continuation of the confronta- 
tions between pro and anti 
Sharon demonstrators which 
has already left one dead. The 
resignation was the result of 
an investigative commission's

February 17, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 

I sit at my typewriter to think 
a spiritual thought for the 
Directions column, and then I 
think, ''spiritual thought?" 
That is ridiculous." What is 
"spiritual?" We have divided 
life into neat categories. 
"Well, now I am going to do 
something spiritual. I will 
pray or go to church."- The 
trap that we have avoided in 
the area of dividing man into 
body and soul when it comes 
to the doctrine of the state of 
man in death, we have fallen 
into in our daily lives. If we 
believe in man as a whole 
person, then that concept 
must be true for what happens 
tomanwhenhediesasitis for 

how we live. 

Separating our lives into neat 
categories of "spiritual and 
non-spiritual" or "secular and 
sacred" results in a kind of 
schizophrenic existence. The 
result is that church attend- 
ance has little to do with real 
life and real life has little to do 
with church attendance. 

Such a dicotomous separation 
of life is contrary to scripture 
and it is contrary to how we 
experience reality. AH I do in 
life needs to be a reflection of 
who I am in relation to God, 
whether sitting in church or 
playing basketball. 

That is not to say that all 
activity is appropriate for a 

sacred day, but it is to say that 
if a chameleon change needs 
to occur one day a week, then 
what happens on the one day 
is not much affecting your life. 
Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest some strange behavior 
developed on the part of 
Freddy the fox. Freddy was a 
popular fellow with many of 
the forest animals and was 
generally the life of any party 
he attended. You might say 
he was foxy. All week long 
Freddy would be his normal 
self. He would chase turkeys 
or chickens, dig for mice and 
generally be himself. 

But a strange transformation

Never, never be guilty of 
disqualifying your prospect. 
Let him do that himself, and 
underestimate your 
prospect's buying power. 

One hot summer day a lead 
card took me into the foothills 
of the Shenandoah Valley. 
After two unsuccessful at- 
tempts, I finally found the 
right dirt road that led me all 
the way up the side of a 
mountain. The road came to 
:nd, and I parked the car 
and started walking. After 
climbing over and through 
three fences, at last I was near 
the house. I made my way 
over and around trash, broken 
furniture, old car parts, and 
rubble till I got to the porch. 
The steps were rotten, and 
what was left of the porch was 
covered with broken furniture 
and more litter. Cobwebs were 

1 abundance. I decided no 
one lived there and that I must 
have taken the wrong road. 

At that moment I could hear 
strains of music but could not 
te ll from where they were 
wming. The music stopped 
a "d then I heard voices. This 
w as straifce. because I could 
se e that the house was empty. 

walked toward the back of 
™e old house. 1 heard the 
radio again, and three big 

hounds got up and lazily 
ambled away. The music was 
coming from a little shack in 
the back of the house. 
I braced myself, stepped up 
on the stoop and knocked on 
the door. Suddenly a bearded 
man stood in the doorway and 
said, "Yup." I said I was 
there in reply to his request 
for information about The 
Bible Story and told him my 
name. He replied with, 
"Yup." I could see past him, 
and the inside looked worse 
than the outside, so I decided 
■- to stay right on the porch. I 
showed him The Bible Story 
accordian folder and asked 
him whether he liked them. 
He said, "Yup." I thought I 
would try a close and asked 
whether he would like to have 
them. He said, "Yup." 
I don't know why, but I 
decided to show him the BRL 
accordian folder and told him 
the six large books and the 
Bible came with The Bible 
Story and that all of it together 
was only $298. 75.He pulled 
out a wad of money from the 
bib of his overalls and handed 
me three dollars. I prayed 
again, "Lord, what do I do 
now?" I felt impressed to say, 
"You don't understand. The 
price is $298.75, and you do 

want them, don't you?" 
He said, "Yup," and took 
back the three dollars and 
handed me three $100 bills 
and a $20 bill when I told him 
there was a tax and postage. I 
gave him his change, and then 
he spoke his first sentence: 
"When do I get my books?" I 
said, "Right now, if you will 
follow me~to the car." He did, 
and 1 gave him the home 
library. I had prayer with him, 
and I noticed a tear in his eye 
as he put the heavy box on his 
shoulder and made his way 
through the fences and around 
the house. As I stood there 
watching him climb that hill I 
said, "Lord, bless that simple 
man, and may his faith be 
rewarded in heaven."

took place every Sunday. On 
Sunday, Freddy would not 
chase turkeys or chickens, dig 
for mice or even socialize with 
his friends. It seemed like he 
was hardly a fox on Sunday, 
much to the dismay of his 
friends. He seemed to imitate 
a racoon or some other animal 
in the forest. He did a poor 
job of imitations. 

His friends worried about 
him. Word went around that 
Freddy was losing his grip on 
life. One day some of his 
friends were talking among 
themselves and they decided 
he should go and see a 
counselor (a eu p h iwijm for 

phychiatrists) to sort out his 
rather split personality. The 
intimation of their discussion 
was that he was schizophren- 
ic. A few days later, when 
they got up enough nerve to 
talk to him about his problem, 
he gave this explanation. 
"It is simple," Freddy said. 
"Sunday is the day of the fox 
hunt, and I don't want to be a 
fox on Sunday."

Except for the Rees Series 
which is yet to be held, 
basketball season is now over. 
In some ways it was a very 
surprising season and in other 

In A A the surprise was 
Koliadko and O'Brien ending 
up tied for first place with 
identical 6-4 records. Koliadko 
however, beat O'Brien two 

(earn the right to claim num- 
ber one. Much is to be said for 
Koliadko's efforts as they won 
six of their last seven games, 
after a 0-3 start. This particu- 
lar sports editor, being greatly 
embarassed after picking 
O'Brien and Koliadko 1o finish 
fourth and fifth respectively, 

gladly extends his cor 
ulations to both squads 


Bovell fin- 
winning both his 
games, Bovell 

other AA i 
ished strong, 

leading his I 
test with a 39 point per- 
formance. Vogel and Botimer, 
however, lost both of their 
post season matches, to con- 
clude somewhat disappointing 

season at 7-1, and all alone in 
first place. His only blemish, 
being a 1-point loss to second 
place Hobbs. At press time, 
Hobbs, Manzella, Tunnell, 
and Fitzgerald all have games 
'to play to determine who 
finishes second, third, and 
fourlh. The rest of the teams 
in A league are to be com- 
mended for their perform- 
ances, possibly making this 
year's A league (he best ever. 
B league sports the only 
undefeated team in the school: 
Duff. Finishing at 7-0, Duff 
easily clinched first place with 
several convincing victories. 
Also congratulations to Jeff 
Kuhlman whose 48-point per- 
formance against Gentry lead 
him to a 31-plus-point average 
per game, which is the highest 
in the school. 

McQuistan won the 

Women's league by a one 
game margin over Laurencell. 
McQuistan's team undoubted- 
ly had the best personnel in 
the league on a team by team 
basis, with Loretta Messer, 
Tamara Nafie, Nancy Malin 
and Velvet McQuistan leading 
the team. 
Laurencell was the key factor 
to her team, being the leading 

scorer in the league. Al- 
though low scoring as a team, 
Laurencell managed to keep 
opponents at an even lower 
score, with excellent defense.

Walking by the Student Cen- 
ter between classes, I noticed 
a lettle black gadget lying off 
(he sidewalk in the grass. 
Picking it up, I looked it oyer. 
It had a small dial on the front, 
with an arrow that could turn 
around. To the left, it had a 
small "B.C." stamped on it in 
white letters; to the right, 
"A.D." I went clickety-click. 
Pretty cute. I turned the dial 
over to the right, and 
punched a little button. 

"Hey, look at the weirdo! 
Where'd you get that martian 
nerd suit?" I looked up and 
found what "I thought were 
students. As they gathered 
about me, I noticed that they 
i wearing plastic-coated 
jump suits. Where'd they 
come from? 

"What some people do for 
attention," said one guy, fin- 
gering my Izod sweater. 
"Maybe he's on his way to a 
costume party," added a girl. 

"If you don't mind," I said 
rather hotly, "I happen to be 
very preppie." 

"Preppie?" They all stared, 
at each other. "He must be a 
theology student using new 
words." Bored with me, they 
walked off, except for one guy. 
"Hi," he said. "My name is 
Eoraino. ' ' Very funny I 
thought. I'll joke with him. 
"I'm Stromboli." "Glad to 
meet you, strom," he said, 
shaking my hand. (I think this 
guy. is on the level.) "Say," I 
asked, "Where am I?" He 
looked surprised. "Why, this 
is the campus of S.M.C." 
"S.M.C.? You changed the 
name again?" "Yes, it was 
made Schlisner Memorial Col- 
lege in 2015, after the greatest 
college president we ever had. 
That was about 50 years ago, ' ' 
I stared bug-eyed. "What 
made him so great?" "Ah," 
said Lomino, sounding wist- 
ful, "He instituted a movie 
screen in each room. We've 

by Victor Czerkasij 

been the biggest college 
since." I sat down weakly. 
"Hey, are you alright?" he 
asked. "You look like tuition 
went up again. "How much do 
you pay now?" I wondered. 
"Oh, we're the cheapest at 
53,500 an hour." I groped for 
an air-sick bag. "Say," he 
asked, "Do you know much 
about this school's early his- 
tory?" "A little." "Could 
you come and answer some 
questions?" "I'll try." 

"Great! Let's go over to the AI 
Franklin Archives." I wasn't 
going to ask. 

Seated in front of a video 
screen, Lomino showed me a 
large mushroom cloud. "Oh, 
that's easy," I said. "That's 
an atomic explosion." Sober- 
ly, Lomino said, "Yes, I know. 
After the C.K. grill blew up in 
the spring of 1983, we had to 
start all over. My grandfather, 
Lomino Sr., was named in 
honor of the survivors." 

I came to. "Hey, Stromboli, 

you fainted dead away!" 
"I'm-I'm alright. What 
else?" A fat, orange cat 
flashed on the screen. "How 
is this creature associated with 
the early growth of the 
school?" "Oh, just news- 
paper filler." Another picture 
appeared. It was an old group 
scene from Nerd Day. "This 
has puzzled the scholars for a 
longtime," said Lomino. "Is 
it a tour group from Mocassin 
Bend? ' ' ' 'You could say 

The next scene showed a 
group of soldiers with rifles 
and flame throwers entering 
talge. "Did SMC have campus 
riots?" asked Lomino, con- 
cerned. "No, but they did 
have a roach problem." Lomi- 
no had more questions. 
"What was the Strawberry 
Festival? Was it an early rite 
of spring?" "Not hardly." 
" What were Jokers?" "Cam- 
pus Security." 

A beeper went off on his 

wrist. "Oh-oh, gotta get going 
to my room-it's time for 
chapel." "Chapel in your 
room?" I asked, confused. 
"That's right, over the video 
screen. Same with classes." 
"Well, I guess you don't 
worry about chapel cards." 
"No, we don't, but this beeper 
is loaded with 200 volts if I'm 
not tuned in right." I 
blanched. "Will you be here 
Saturday night?" he asked. 
"We'll be having a real old 
classic: Don Knotts meets 
E. T. ' ', followed by a good 
fiction flic: "J.T. Makes 
V.P." "No, no, I'm sorry, I 
have to go." I flipped the 
switch to 1983 and pressed the 
button. Back in my time, I 
headed straight over to the 
trash bin with my gadget, then 
stopped. Hmm, what if I went 
to B.C. ? Make a good article. . .

Endowmen t 

The Southern College Board 
of Trustees voted to accept a 
proposal for a 10 million 
endowment fund to be com- 
pleted by 1992. The program 
would be run by a campaign 





ordinate the fund-raising 

The idea for the fund was 
originated by Sanford Ulmer, 
who was a student here over 
60 years ago. He and his wife 
were driving by Collegedale 
on 1-75 when they saw the sign 
to the college and realized 
they hadn't been here for 
many years. They talked to 
several staff members, then 
got in touch with the Public 
Relations office about setting 
up a scholarship fund. The 
Ulmers received many letters 
from grateful students, thank- 
ing them for the gift. 

"What better thing can we 
do with our money?" Ulmer 
asked the board in an emotion- 
al presentation. "I want to do 
something for the students of 
this college." 

The board voted their 
appreciation to Mr. and Mrs. 

In other action, the Tony 
Romero report 

change was officially pre- 
sented to the Board of 
Trustees. The trustees voted 
to establish a committee con- 
sisting of board members, 
faculty, alumni, and students. 
This committee will make 
recommendations to the Board 
of Trustees relative to the 
college name, logo, diplomas, 
and marketing. All actions 
concerning this matter will go 
through this committee. 

The trustees approved a 
tuition increase of 8% for next 
school year. This is the 
increase necessary due to the 
projected drop in enrollment 
of 140 FTE (full-time equiv- 
alency). Despite the increase. 
Southern College will still be 
the second least expensive 
Adventist college in North 
America, according to Dr. 
Knittel. Oakwood College 
costs less but is subsidized by 
the General Conference. 
The trustees granted Dr. Ray 
Hefferlin a sabbatical leave for 
next year so he can to to the 
Soviet Union. They also 
granted six teachers a summer 
leave-Bruce Ashton, Brad 
Davis, Judy Glass, Desmond 
Rice, and Steve Zimmerman. 
The trustees did not cut any 
tenured faculty. 

Spangle r gives Week of Prayer 

Elder Robert Spangler, editor 
of Ministry magazine, is con- 
ducting the Spring Week of 
Spiritual Emphasis at South- 
ern College this week. 

"I am praying," Spangler 
told the students at the open- 
ing meeting, "that God will 
help us get a closer relation- 
ship to him." We need to put 
first things first. Even if you 
have to change your whole 

the South and Southwest. In 
1954, Elder Spangler received 
a call to the Far Eastern 

"A person is lost not because 
he is 'bad' but because he ig- 
nores God. By ignoring God," 
Spangler emphasized, "we 
get our of harmony with him. 
Then we get a 'who cares' 

Elder Spangler attended 
Southern Junior College from 
1939-41. "I would have gone 
here all four years because I 
just love it here," he says, 
"but they only had a two year 
program at that time." Elder 
Spangler met his wife at what 
is now Columbia Union Col- 
ege where he graduated from 
in 1943. He interned in the

The precision of the acrobats 
are due to years of training 
and discipline, but their art 
was formed by centuries of 
tradition. The Chinese acro- 
batics are more than a series 
of stunts. Most of the acts 
were created and performed in 

China as far back as 200 B.C.

Many of the acts demonstrate 
finding harmony between 
mind and body--an ancient 
concept in the Orient. 

The cast numbers 17 per-

In the past 6 years, tours have 
taken them through all of

Spring Break came 
just in time 

SpringBreak! A time, Jo head h^ofl* beach «■»« 

chance to sleep, eat, watch TV (catch up on the soapsl), relax 
and enjoy Me for a while. .„„,„, icauehtupon 

1 know that my Spring Break helped me a lot. I caught ^upo 
mv sleep and saved myself from becoming sick. 1 watched 

stuff I really enjoyed myself, just being lazy for once. 

I am really glad that the administration has incorporated 
such" vacation into the schedule. Just think about wha it 
would be like if we didn't have a Spring Break « 

After all your midterm tests, you would have tostart 
studying all over again immediately for quizzes and finals, 
etc You wouldn't be able to catch your breath, because 
there would be no time. Of course, school would get out one 
week earlier, but what if you couldn't make it to the end ol 
the semester? What if you collapsed from overwork and too 
much study? You would have just wasted your entire 
semester. . 

Actually, Spring Break is a chance for teachers to catch up, 
too They can finish grading all those papers they required 
just before midterms, and then make up grades. They might 
even get a couple of days off, if they work real hard! 

I know I appreciated Spring Break, How about you?

Dear Editor, 

I would like to share an 
experience 1 had over vacation 
with you. Some friends and 1 
were in Record Bar in the 
Eastgate Shopping Center and 
we were looking at some of the 
records. One of my friends 
picked up a record by Black 
Sabbath and on the cover was 
a picture of Satan. Even 
though my friend was holding 
it, I got really bad vibes from 
it. It was like an evil influence 
was permeating the atmos- 
phere. It scared me and I had 
to leave. This experience has 
showed me that the devil has a 
direct influence on rock music. 
1 would like to thank the 
faculty for making rock con- 
certs off limits. They know 
what they are doing. Thank 

Cindy Torgesen 
Dear Editor, 

This letter concerns a classi- 
fied in last week's Accent 
addressed to Talge residents 
by Ms. "Anonymous" claim- 
ing that a man-eating lioness 
had gone into Talge and 
starved to death. Most guys I 
talked to dismissed it as a 
stupid joke, and maybe that's 
all it is. 
I suspect, however, that Ms. 
"Anonymous" was being at 
least partly serious in which 
case she should know that 
there are plenty of guys over 
here still waiting for the first 
"10" to move into Thatcher. 
This doesn't mean that there's 
anything wrong with the girls 
at Thatcher, or the guys at 
Talge for that matter. There 


that are very wrong with the 

very unChristian concept of a 
"10" or a "real" (ideal) man 
or "real" woman. The main 
problems are 1) that for all but 
a handful of people within any 
given society, becoming a 
"10" isn't really possible, and 
2) the goal itself (of becoming 
a "10" isn't really all that 
The point is that for every 
person who is a "10". there 
are millions of others who 
either are hopelessly frus- 
trated by their inability to 
become a "10" or who have 
learned, somehow, to Hve 
happy and well-adjusted lives 
in spite of that inability. 
Now as to how desirable it is 
to be a "10" (or to date one, 
for that matter), I suppose the 
two best examples of a "10" 
in our society are Tom Selleck 
and Raquel Welch. I don't 
know a great deal about Tom 
Selleck, but 1 do know that 
when he's on television he's 
acting out the role of Magnum 
not Tom Selleck; and as 
attractive as he may seem to 
Thatch erites, I doubt that 
most of them would really 
enjoy a relationship with him. 
In Ms. Welch's case, I do 
know a little of her personal life 
and Im quite sure none in 

having her as a companion. 
The best case-in-point re- 
garding the desirability of 
being a "10" is probably 
Marilyn Monroe. If anyone 
ever was a "10", it was 
Marilyn. In fact, Raquel really 
doesn't hold a candle to her 
and a look at one of Ms. 
Monroe's movies will convince 
any doubters. Marilyn died of 
a drug overdose in 1962 at age 
36 and, although some claim 

she was really murdered, 
there can be no doubt that this 
"10" lived a miserable life. 
When one girl told Marilyn 
she wanted to be just like her, 
she very emphatically told the 
girl never to say that again. 
"You have everything, "Mon- 
roe told her, "you have people 
who really love you. Nobody 

If only she knew how wrong 
she was! There was Someone 
who loved Marilyn with an 
everlasting love and He has 
that same kind of love for you 
and me. In His opinion (the 
only one that really counts) 
we're all "10's", througha 
saving knowledge of His love 
and grace. 
If there is a true, all-encom- 
passing set of criterion for a 
"real" man or woman, it 1S 
that set up by Paul in I and B 
Timothy. Although it is advice 
given to a young man H""-

McElroy celebrates election 

Campaigning for the 1983-84 
Student Associations offices 
ended during the latter part of 
February with voting on Feb- 
ruary 16 and 17. Glenn 
McElroy received 89 % of the 
vote in his unopposed bid for 
SA President. In the vice- 
presidental race, J.T. Shim 
pulled 62%of the vote to Cary 
Gregory's 38%. Ken Rozell 
was eliminated in the qualify- 
ing primary. Malinda McKee 
gained the right to edit next 
year's Southern Memories by 
outdistancing opponent 
Stafford Barzey, 60% to 40%- 
In the other elections, Peggy 
Brandenburg received 87% of 
the yes/no vote to become 
Social Activities Director. 
John Seaman had a 91% 
approval rating in his quest to 
be the next Student Services 
Director. Maureen Mayden 
will move from assistant 
Editor of the Southern Accent 
to Editor because of her 84% 
positive rating. Don Welch 
received the highest vote per- 
centage of all the candidates 
in his bid to become Joker 
editor with 93%. 

The winning candidates had 
many ways to celebrate their 
victories. Some held quiet 

parties. Glenn McElroy, how- 
ever, made a big splash. One 
day after the results were 
released, McElroy had a big 
party at Taco Bell. At 5:30, he 
arrived at the Mexican res- 
taurant in a black limosine, 
accompanied by a police es- 
cort. A camera crew from 
TV12 was on hand to take 
footage of the SA President- 
elect and his celebrating sup- 
porters. McElroy told the : 
Southern Accent he planned 
the party not only to celebrate 
but to build school spirit. "1 
feel like we have to have 
better school spirit," he said. 
"We need to let people know 
we aren't ashamed of being 
from Southern." "My main 
prioirity next year," 
McElroy added, "is to build 
school spirit and the under- 
standing between faculty and 
students. This all ties to- 
gether-school spirit, positive 
attitude and an understanding 
from where faculty and stu- 
dents are coming. "I see' next 
year's SA as an organization 
working for the students and 
with the students for the 
betterment of Southern

Third time's 
for Shim 

a cha rm 

After making the campaign 
slogan of "JT 4 VP" a 
well-known phrase in 1981 
and 1982, it will finally be "JT 
in '83". Jook-Ting Shim, 
better know as JT, was elected 
with 62% of the votes to the 
office which he has been 
seeking for the past three 
years, that of S.A. vice pres- 
ident. This is compared with 
12% of the votes his first year 
of candidacy and 8% the 
following year. 

How does JT feel after his 
recent victory? "Relieved. 1 
had put sufficient time and 
effort and thought into the 
vice presidential race that to 
lose this time would have been 
considered defeat," answers 
the vice president-elect. "The 
last two attempts were not 
defeats-they just weren't suc- 
cesses. The twenty-four hours 


before the results were posted 
were the longest I've experi- 
enced for years. It's the first 
time that I honestly wished 
time would go faster." 

JT admits, however, that he 
wasn't surprised at the re- 
sults because he had cam- 
paigned hard, had the support 
of many influential people on 
campus, and was ready. It 
was this that made the dif- 
ference in the outcome from 
previous years. "The cam- 
paign had a significant impact 
on my studies, finances and 
sleep, unlike the previous two 
attempts," explains JT. "The 
investment in time and money 
by friends and myself far 
exceed the combined efforts of 
my 1981 and 1982 vice presi- 
dential campaigns." how- 
ever, JT believes that it was 
the confidence that he had 

himself that truly made the 
difference this year. "I have 
this problem-I find it ex- 
tremely difficult to lie. There- 
fore, rfind it impossible to sell 
or market something I don't 
believe in. The last two years 
I could not say as I can this 
year, 'I am the best man for 
the job of S.A. vice president.' 

I am convinced, and I can 
convince others." 

Being the type of indiv-lual 
that likes to "get in the 
driver's seat and do it right 
rather than "sitting in the 
backseat criticizing and ques- 
tioning the actions and deci- 
sions of any administration," 
JT believes he is in _ the 
position with which he "can 
do the most good for the most 
people. I have great difficulty 
being a spectator in life. I 
thrive on involvement and do 

not intend to complain about 
any situation without first 
studying the problem and 
attempting to solve it. I like 
action. I like progress. I like 
improvement. Besides, it will 
be an official title which will 
cover most of the extra-cur- 
ricular activity I'm now en- 
gaged in. I can justify doing 
what I enjoy by saying that it 
it my job." 

by Jim Davis 

Realizing that it's "impos- 
sible" to do justice to the vice 
presidency and be a full time 
student, he is postponing his 
graduation a year. 

In reference to suggestions 
that Glenn McElroy, Presi- 
dent-elect, and JT will not 
work well together, JT states, 
"I've only met one person on 
this campus with whom I truly 
couldn't stand, and it isn't 
Glenn. "I've got the capa- 
bility for realizing that my wayj 
is not the only way or even thej| 
best way." Having worked 
with Glenn McElroy on the 
Senate Projects Committee, 
JT knows that the vice presi- 
dent does not work by himself. 
"The president will be ex- 
pected to call the shots, and as 
I've said before, and I'll say 
again. 'I will support the

Spangler discusses major issues 

The Southern Accent talked 
to Elder Robert Spangler con- 
cerning issues facing the 
church. Here are excerpts 
from the conversation. 

You have travelled to Australia 
and held meetings with mini- 
sters. What is the situation 
like out there? 

The church has recently lost 
50 ministers in Australia, 
mostly to apostasy. The main 
difference in Ford's theology 
is prophetic interpretation. It 
is like Ford chopping down the 
forest of prophetic inter- 
pretation and planting his 

Another tragedy is that many 
of Ford's followers have gone 
far beyond him in dropping 

ihe Sabbath, the law and other 
basic Adventist doctrines. 
Do you see the church accept- 
ing these ministers back? 
The question is "Can you 
push back the walls of the 
church?" Prophecy is so 
interwoven into the doctrines 
of the church that to alter 
them would destroy 

Is the gap between Ford and 
the Seventh-day Adventist 
Church insurmountable? 
It is insurmountable in that 
Ford and his group won't 
change. If the church 
changes, it will lose its reason 
for existence. Ford has gone 
farther away from the church 
then you think in the last five 

Many church members felt 
that Ford did not get a fair 
deal at Glacier View. What is 

Many of these feelings are aue 
to misunderstandings con- 
cerning the Glacier View 
gathering. There were actual- 
ly two sets of meeting. The 
original Glacier View meeting 
was to strictly be investi- 

However, leaders from the 
Australasia Division wanted to 
decide what to do with Ford's 
credientials. So a separate 
meeting was held after the 
regular meeting. 
I was on the committee that 
interviewed Ford. We asked 
him to take his time in 
considering his position but he 

refused. I wish we had waited 
on this committee to avoid the 

How do you feel about the 
extra duties that have been 
added to your workload? 
1 enjoy the work but it is very 
stressful in terms of the crisis 
that Has rocked the General 
Conference. Yet I feel that the 
crisis had to come because of 
the lethargy among the mem- 
bers of the church. 
Some of the crisis is very 
tramatic. I have a friend who 
gave up everything-church, 
God. Yet good has come out 
of it. It has forced us to study, 
individually. And to make 
sure our message is Biblically 
sound and Biblically based. 
The more we study, the more 

firmly we believe in the fund- 
amental beliefs. We have a 
Biblical foundation. ft j s 
expanded and broadened bv 
Ellen G. White. But the basic 
principles are from the Bible. 
Will the church de-emphasize 
Ellen White? 

There will be less emphasis in 
the sense that ministers will 
not be having whole sermons 
using only EGW quotes. Her 
writings will be used as an aid. 
Ellen G. White's writing will 
also be used less as a club. 
The way we used it in the past 
tended to be counter-pro- 
ductive. In the past we also 
put her on a pedestal. We 
have to remember that she 
was a human being. 


How do you react to stress? 


cellor Helmut Kohl's 
right wing coalition defeated 
the more liberal Social Demo- 
crats decisively in West Ger- 
many's parliamentary elec- 
tions Sunday. This win will 
ease the way for the scheduled 
deployment of U.S. medium- 
range nuclear missiles there 
later this year. In Washing- 
ton, a State Department offi- 
cial claimed that Kohl's vic- 
tory "makes the whole 
management of the missiles 
easier," because of the Chan-

President Reagan told a 
gathering of evangelicals that 
he'd agree to freeze nuclear

wrapped up in a 10-day 
tour of the West coast in 
Washington Tuesday. The 
tour, stretching from San 
Diego to Seattle and high- 
lighted by a stay at the 
Reagan's southern California 
ranch, was marred by con- 
sistently bad weather, demon- 
strations assailing Britain's

A growing number of college 
counselors are reporting a major 
ase in stress, resulting from 
poor economic conditions, bad 
job prospects, financial aid cuts 
and even world political crises, 
like this summer's war in Leba- 

Some counselors say stress is 
no worse now than in the past. 
They point out that stress is an 
ongoing part of college life, since 
college is a lime of change and 
growth, and changes are a basic 
cause of stress. 

This year, however, counsel- 
ing centers on many campuses 
are being flooded with new 
clients and forced to work longer 
with existing ones. And while the 
problems — relationships, career 
choices, academic pressures — 
remain the same, students' ability 
to deal with problems appears to 
be impaired. 

Like many of the newly un- 
employed, college students are 
being overwhelmed by a sense of 
helplessness, a feeling that they 
have no control over their own 
lives. "We've got people saying, 
'I've done all the right things, but 
society keeps changing the 
rules' ," says Thomas Cummings 
of Arizona State U.'s Counseling 
Service." The angry optimism of 
the '60s and '70s is gone," says 
Chuck Heikkinen of the U. of 
Wisconsin-Madison.'.' There are 

more deeply depressed people. 
People that would ordinarily 
bounce back from a specific prob- 
lem take longer to recover." 

Deep depression is one aspect 
of severe stress. Others reported 
by counselors include: 

• More suicidal behavior: It's 
too early to report a statistical in- 
crease in suicides, say coun- 
selors. But they're definitely see- 
ing more people who have 
considered suicide. 

• More homicidal behav- 
ior: Counselors report — rather 
cautiously — that rage generated 
by personal problems is being di- 
rected at other things, and other 

• Increased problems with al- 
cohol: Drinking is one form of 
escape, and when students see no 
alternative to problems, escape is 
more attractive. 

• Physical ailments: High 
blood pressure, headaches, 
stomach problems are all show- 
ing up more frequently, particu- 
larly among students who inter- 
nalize their problems, instead of 
seeking help. 

• More identity crises among 
women; At the U. of Kansas, 
60% of the counseling center's 
clients are female, an increase of 
7% over last year. "They're get- 
ting a lot of conflicting input," 
says KU's Dr. Richard 
Rundquist." They're struggling 

to find out what it is they want to 

• A greater awareness of 
money: With personal finances 
tight, students are more aware of 
money owed them by friends, 
landlords, or colleges. At North- 
ern Illinois U., Legal Services 
Director Patrick Conboy sees 
more students who want to know 
how to get their money back. 

• A potential rise in student 
crime; Many campuses are re- 
porting an increase in vending 
machine thefts, and some are 
looking at removal of machines 
as a last resort. 

• More church attendance: 
The student life is "a very pres- 
sured existence, and that pressure 
is producing big crowds for us, 
says Rev. Roger Callahan of the 
Christian Students Foundational 
Purdue U. A religious film festi- 
val at NIU drew 700 people— an 
unexpectedly large turnout. 

• Greater intolerance of di- 
versity: A U . of Maryland survey 
showed young people in that slate 
are less tolerant of minonties, 
while other campuses report 
greater resentment toward gay 
and feminist students.

March 10, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 


Pastor Gordon Bietz 

As some may have heard over 
WSMC, the General Confer- 
ence Officers have decided not 
to publish a list of names of 
people in the Review and 
Herald of those who were 
implicated in the Davenport 
commission study conducted 
by the General Conference. 
This is a reversal of a previous 
decision reported in the 
Review and Herald that the 
names of some church admin- 
istrators would published. 
One can hear the hue and cry 
of some whose initial reaction 
might be "Whitewash!" or 
"The General Conference did 
not have the courage to act." 
Such concerns and doubts 
arise from fears that the 
Davenport trauma will be 
swept under the rug and 
implicated administrative per- 
sonnel will simply be passed 
to another conference or 
church entity. It may be felt 
that without such a visible 
punishment, other "Daven- 
ports" will arise that will 
traumatize the church in fu- 
ture years. I agree with the 

decision of the GC officers and 
admire Neal Wilson for the 
courage he had in reversing 
himself after have published 
his intentions in the Review. 
1 have two major reasons for 
agreeing with the decision not 
to publish the names. (1) The 
placing of a "scarlet letter" on 
the names of certain people as 
a form of punishment heark- 
ens back to the Middle Ages 
and is an inappropriate form 
of church discipline. Such a 
public presentation of names 
of any implicated official 
might satisfy the sadistic 
nature of the scandal mon- 
gers, but it reminds one more 
of placing people in stocks 
than a form of redeeming 
censor. What purpose is 
served than simply the de- 
struction of some careers. For 
those who would like to see 
certain careers destroyed, I 
might quote from Meg 
Greenfield's recent article in 
Newsweek (March 7, 1983) "I 
do have the impression that 
we have been seized by a kind 
of uncontrolled-mob mood. 

one that could result in a 
number of people's getting 
hurt unnecessarily," and 
though speaking about the 
events in Washington, what 
she says applies to us, as she 
continues, "Somehow, the 
whole country seems to get 
engaged-rapidly, willingly, 
even joyously-in these epi- 
sodes of ruin, episodes in 
which someone of whom most 
people had practically never 
heard only a short while before 
becomes the embodiment of 
all things defective or evil. The 
charges may be false; they 
may be true in some special 
respect, but, in their present- 
ation, wildly disproportionate 
to the truth. We all have a 
good time. The victim stag- 
gers away. We go on to 
something else.... Invariably 
there comes a point when 
neutral observers as well as 
certain red-hot defenders start 
insisting that although (a) the 
poor devil in questions is 
really nothing like the monster 
that is emerging as his image, 
and (b) the more serious 

charges against him have yet 
to be proved, he should in the 
interest of some greater public 
good, get lost. 

The guilty must be removed 
from office, the incompetent 
given positions that are within 
their competence, but to pub- 
lish names is to go beyond the 
proper bounds of church dis- 

(2) The other reason, and the 
prime one, as far as I am 
concerned, is one of church 
policy. By moving to punish 
through the publication of 
names the General Con- 
ference was subverting pro- 
perly constituted form of dis- 
cipline in the SDA church and 
moving toward a papal 
usurpation of authority. 

The local entity (Union of 
Local Conference) who hired 
the people is responsible for 
their discipline. To take that 
responsibility from the local 
organization is to move toward 
an episcopal form of govern- 
ment that is contrary to our 
church's theology of policy. 
"Well" some may say. "the 

local organizations will not do 
anything about the problem." 
In the history of the church 
and society the belief that the 
local body was not responsible 
and able to handle its own 
problems has frequently re- 
sulted in the infringement of 
one organization into the re- 
sponsibility of another. 

The General Conference will 
and should reveal the informa- 
tion it has to the employing 
organizations and encourage 
them in their implementation 
of that discipline. But to 
pre-empt the authority of the 
hiring organization is contrary 
to our form of church govern- 
ment. It is imperative that 
local employing organizations 
act with appropriate dispatch 
in implementing discipline 
against administrators who 
have abused the trust of the 
membership. But if they don't 
we will not have a long range 
solution to the problem by 
asking the General Con- 
ference to assume more au- 
thority then its charter

Thanksgiving just passed, I 
thought I'd share some things 
I'm most thankful for. 

I'm thankful to God 
For picking me, 
To leave my school 
To be a missionary. 

I'm thankful to God 

For sending me to Majuro, 

And I'm glad that when He 

I said I would go. 

I'm thankful to God 
For the kids that I teach. 
They've become so precious, 
And I've learned to love them 

I'm thankful to God 

For the things here that go 

For though they often hurt, 
They are making me grow 

And I'm thankful to God 
For allowing me, 
To help prepare these kids 
For their eternity. 

suppose the neatest thing that 
happened to me this month 
was my little "vacation to 
Singapore. It was really hard 

to believe all the clean streets 
and traffic all going in a 
straight line with no horns 
honking. While there I did a 
lot of shopping and even ate at 
Burger King and McDonalds, 
which was absolutely great! It 
was just like the States. Also, 
we actually got some vegetar- 
ian food at the FEA cafeteria. 
Well anyway, this month has 
sped by super fast. The Lord 
has really blessed us here in 
Jakarta. Please remember us 
in your prayers and God bless 
you wherever you may be 
reading this. Have a nice day! 

row is Thanksgiving so I'd like 
to say a few things I'm 
especially thankful for:l. That 
we got Thanksgiving off. 2. 
For all my Bible students. 
They've sure made me study 
my Bible. I don't know who's 
learned more-them or me. 3. 
For my family and friends in 
America. And that by being 
here I've realized just how 
much I do love them. 4. For 
my friends here-especially 
my best Friend-Jesus. 5. For 
the 10 letters I got yesterday. 

6. That this term's almost up. 

7. That I've gotten the chance 
to be here and share God with 
others, and to get closer to 
Him myself. 

shall I start? Should I tell you 
about the wonderful way our 
new school here has come 
along and the hope we have 
for next term, or should I tell 
you about how the Lord 
answered our prayer about our 
heating problem (the situation 
was impossible from our view- 
point-next day, no problem)? 
There are pages of things 1 
could share with you all but I 
don't really have the time, so 
I'll just say how wonderful and 
good the Lord has been to 
Dave, Doug, Al and I. One 
thing I must mention though, 
we are having three baptisms 
on Christmas Day. Hello to all 
my fello SCSDAites. I am 
praying for you! 

you a few of the many things 
I'm thankful for this Thanks- 
giving season. The first and 
most important is knowing 
I have the Lord on my side 
always. Next is the help and 
encouragement I receive from 
my family. There is also 
health, friends and holidays. 
Thanksgiving Day was defi- 
nitely different from the usual 
but the other SMs and volun- 
teers helped to make it spe- 
cial. The typhoon Pamela also 
made it special. But the Lord 
came through and no one was

be changing as certain colleges become mo 
their fight for survival. 

Take a Columbia Union College ad that 
several academy newspapers in the Columbia Umonnlarg 
letters the ad says, "You don't have to spend four years a, 
college working in a cookie factory." In smaller type the 
advertisement Joes on to say tha, "Work experience ,n your 
field makes any college graduate more qualified. Employe 
know that." CUC's 
students got "hanc 
hospital a( 
and then were engaged. 

How touching. But the implications of the ad are not. 
Prospective college students could come to believe that the 
only jobs available at Southern College are on an assembly 
line while CUC has a monopoly of "practical" jobs. 

Columbia Union College's ad couldn't be farther from the 
truth. There is a whole spectrum of jobs available for 
students at Southern College. Students are working at local 
television and radio stations, as accountants for insurance 

companies, for Adventist Health Systems/Sunbelt as nurses, 
accountants, and in Public Relations, and as interns in area 
health care establishments. And the list goes on and on. 

And while CUC says there are thousands of jobs available, 
Southern College guarantees each student a job--a job to help 
pay tuition that is hundreds of dollars less than CUC. 

Maybe that is why so many students from the Columbia 
Union and around the country chose Southern College over 
CUC. They know where they can get a good education and a 
good job away from a decaying city with a high crime rate. 

Thai's the Southern College difference.

Dear Editor, because of a gut feeling or 

I am writing in regard to the emotional impulse which they 

letter written by Cindy Tor- mistake for reality, 

geson in last week's Southern Our feelings or emotions are 

Accent. In her letter, she greatly influenced by 

after looking at the 
cover of an album by the rock 
group Black Sabbath a 
"strange feeling" came over 
her and she had to leave the 
store. Because she believed a 
picture on the front of the 
album to be a likeness of 
Satan, which claims caused 
the "strange feeling" she 
concluded that all rock music 
if "of the Devil." One of the 
greatest pitfalls of people 
(SDA's included) today is that 
so many of them come to 
moral conclusions about is- 
sues such as rock music 

ditioned responses and 
learned attitudes instilled in 
us by parents, teachers and 
society- These attitudes vary 
with the individual and there- 
fore cannot be relied upon to 
trigger an emotional response 
based on solid fact. Human 
body chemistry changes from 
day to day and so a stimilus 
which would cause cold chills 
one day may not even affect 
the person the next. Perhaps if 
Miss Torgeson had seen the 
album cover at a different time 
or in a different setting it 
might not have been dis- 

tressing to her, but because 
she was negatively affected by 
the visual stimulus she has 
made a generalized judge- 
ment upon all rock music and 
has commended the adminis- 
tration for banning rock con- 

My point is not whether or 
not rock music is of the devil, 
but whether or not we are

the letter was no doubt over- 
come by emotion when she 
wrote it. I can think of dozens 
of rock bands that will have 
nothing to do with the devil. A 
person has the power of 
choice, and can decide for 
himself, without the help of 
others, what type of music is 
best for him. He also can 
decide what type of literature 
to read, and what type of 
painting to look at. Does one 
condemn Leonardo DaVinci 
simply because he was homo- 
sexual? I am not going to 
condemn a person for listen- 

ing to country music, nor will I 
condemn anyone for listening 
to any kind of music. It's just 
when people try to generalize 
rock music as being com- 
pletely bad that all logic is 
done away with. To say that 
Barry Mantlow is okay while 
putting down a group like Van 
Halen shows me the narrow 
mindedness that some people 
have. Perhaps this is one of 
the reasons why 75 percent of 
the children born SDA's leave 
the church.

Dear Editor, 

I really want to send a group 
of students a balloon bouquet, 
but since only a few would see 
it, I'll write a letter so my 
compliments might have 
wider circulation. The people 
receiving the bouquet would 
be this year's Student Asso- 
ciation Officers. 

When I was asked last spring 
to be the SA Sponsor for Social 
Activities, I accepted with only 
mild enthusiasm, my "yes" 
coming mainly as a result of 
knowing Patti Stone, the so- 
cial Activities Student 

Although this year is not yet 
over, I have witnessed enough 
of the SA's dedication to 
remember a few specifics: the 
two banquets the SA has 
sponsored have been two of 
the most outstanding I've ever 
attended, as either a student 
or as a faculty member, a 
memorable blend of fantasy, 
elegance, music, entertain- 
ment, food, and romance (how 
can anyone "top" the 72nd 
floor of the Peach Tree?); the 
fall picnic with its blend ot 
old-fashioned activities- -the 
relay races and egg throws- 

and modern entertainment- 
the hot air balloon rides; the 
mixture of tradition and con- 
temporary at the SA's first big 
event, the School's birthday 
party; the numerous attempts 
at sparking school spirit by 
promoting various social get- 
togethers with hot chocolate 
and dozens of donuts. Wes- 
tern day and dress-up day, 
indoor films and outside live 

Yes, I have more than mildly 
enjoyed sponsoring these 
activities. The creativity in 
planning, the time spent in 
organizing, the responsibility 
accepted for less-then-glam- 
orous behind-the-scenes jobs- 
all make me realize once again 
that our 5A has done an 
outstanding job. And I'm 
proud to call its officers my 
friends, especially vivacious 
Patti Stone, whose untiring 
imagination and endless 
efforts as Social Activities 
Director have made this a 
more "social" year for us all.

Dear Editor, 

In the second column of the 
front page of the Southern 
Accent for March 10 it was 
stated that Dr. Hefferlin had 
been voted a sabbatical leave 
"for next year so that he can 
go to the Soviet Union." 

Please note that (1) "next 
year" means 1984-1985, not 
W-1984. (2) going to the 
Soviet Union will be for the 
continuation of science work of 
previous visits, and (3) going 
to the Soviei Union is a 
^nnplex and protracted pro- 

cess, depending on peer re- 
view, funds available to the 
National Academy of Sci- 
ences, the political climate, 
and other factors.

Trustees for the vote, and for

Department. I am also grate- 
ful for (he continued help and

Hospital proposal 

Representatives from the 
state Health Facilities Com- 
mission heard arguments on 
March 8 concerning the pro- 
posed East Hamilton Medical 
Center on Apison Pike in 

Jan Rushing told the com- 
mission that the new $12.7 
million hospital would serve a 
"growing and underserved" 
population and solve the 
problem of the 30-minute 
drive from the Collegedale 
area to downtown 

Chattanooga where most of 
the area hospitals are located. 

Opponents of the hospital 
cited overbedding. duplication 
of services, and rising health 
care costs as reasons for 
rejection of the Adventist 

Health System/Sunbelt 

Stanton, Smith, former 
member of the Georgia- 
Tennessee Regional Health 

Commission Board lead the 
opposition to the proposed 
76-bed hospital. "There is an 
excess of 200 beds in the 
area," Mr. Smith said. "The 
cost of maintaining just one 
empty bed ranges from 
$30,000-560,000 a year. 
"Adding another 76 beds will 
increase the health care costs 
in this community by 2-5 
million dollars per year. I 
appreciate the good intentions 
and the concern... but it's not 
enough reason to overload the 
health care system. 

Other opponents cited the 
impact on occupancy at 
established, in-town facilities 
while others cited the excess 
pressures exerted on hospitals 
by unnecessary beds and 
exhorbitant costs. 

Mr. Rushing, Mayor of 
Collegedale and a AHS/Sun- 
told the com- 
that "a new hospital.

owilson discusses Davenport 

On January 4, the General 
Conference officers voted to 
accept the Presidential Review 
Commission's report concern- 
ing the Davenport affair in 
which the church lost about 18 
million dollars in principal and 
3 million dollars in back 
interest. One of the recom- 
mendations of the commission 
was to print the names of all 
those who were being dis- 
ciplined in the Adventist Re- 

However. on February 24, 
the GC officials reversed their 
position on the printing of the 
names and decided not .to 
release them publicly. 
In response to the many 
questions that were raised 
because of the officials' deci- 
sion, Elder Wilson was inter- 
viewed on a call-in talk show 
on the Adventist Radio Net- 
Here are exc.-rpts from that 

Is this more o] a business 

On the surface, the Lavenport 
affair does have the appear- 
ance of a financial item. We 
are talking about loans and 
investments, bankruptcy, con- 
flict of interest and the light. 
But really it is far more 
inclusive. The real issue is not 
money but confidence or lack 
of it in church organization. 
When 1 hear that some of my 
hrothers and sisters in the 
church are angry with me and 
the church and are en- 
chanted to the point where 
they might not wish to worship 
or to go to church, even to the 
point of withholding financial 
support, 1 know people are 
hurting. If there is anything 1 
or anyone else can do to help, 
to communicate, to heal, to 
minister, I'd say it is fully 
compatible with Sabbathkeep- 

"people are 

publishing names was not a 
good method of discipline. 
Using public humiliation be- 
gan To appear less and less 
desireable. We came to a very- 
clear opinion that this was not 
a good direction to go. 

Does public sin require pub- 
lic review? 

We have to make a public 
rebuke at times. I do think we 
need to balance that, however, 
rather than rebuke, repent- 
ance is a far greater thing. If 
you can get an individual to 
recognize his or her mistake 
and get him to make a public 
confession you have gone 
much farther. 

We do not feel that the 
majority of the people in- 
volved with the Davenport 
affair are great sinners. How- 
ever, we do feel unhappy over 
this matter because it has 
brought universal shame and 
humiliation to us and we are 
concerned about that. 


What changed the officers' 
minds between January 4 and 
February 24? 

First, there were lengthy de- 
liberations that took place. 
There were theological con- 
siderations, historical matters 
taken into account, and 
emotional factors. The com- 
mittee was also briefed as to 
certain legal implications that 
need to be kept in mind. 
Taking all these into account, 
we begin to feel that perhaps 

What vehicle do we have 
planned to allow these con- 
stituencies and committees ac- 
cess to the investigative mate- 
rial so that a judgement can be 

At least two officers of the 
North American Division or 
the General Conference will 
be at each of these meetings to 
present the background with 
the documentation to the full 
group concerning any kind of 
discipline that they feel is 
warranted and the reason for 
that. In that case, there will be 
a clear indication so the mem- 
bers will have sufficient basis 
to do this (discipline). 
We believe this will be helpful 
and we believe it is the best 
way at this time. When all the 
facts are on the table, it brings 
us very close together. 

Will the discipline actually be 
carried out by the local board 
In fact can it be carried out if 
many of those indicted are 
surrounded by boards and 
committees who are their 
peers and friends? 
I would like to believe that 
individuals that serve on 
boards and committees are 
there because they recognize 
the sacredness of that par- 
ticular trust. 1 believe in my 
heart and soul that in the 
majority of cases, they will 
handle it responsibly. 

The information that was 
gathered for us was not neces- 
sarily to be used as a vehicle 
for discipline. It was originally 
done for two reasons. One was 
to get a total and complete 
picture brought together by a 
law firm and a CPA firm so 
that we would know what our 
legal exposure might be. The 
other reason was that we had 
to build a wall of protection for 
ourselves because there were 
individuals seeking to es- 
tablish the fact that the Sev- 
enth-day Adventist church 
was perhaps in collusion with 
Dr. Davenport, that we were 
his agents, and that we were 
in partnership. 

"this matter. ..has 
brought universal 

While we will be willing to 
release material concerning a 
specific situation, we are very 
reluctant to release the whole 
• document until this matter is 
put to rest. 

It was stated that the current 
position on releasing the 
names was taken so local con- 
ferences and boards could 
deal with the problems in their 
areas. Is it impossible for local 
conferences to deal with per- 
sons that have moved into the 
area from other involved 

had to move to a separate 
conference and that con- 
ference kas no part of the 
Davenport matter? 
The General Conference has 
already indicated that they 
are willing to discipline an 
individual who did, in our 
judgement and based on the 
facts, fail in carrying out his 
responsibility as an officer. 
We have already taken an 
action of administrative rep- 
rimand for being derelict in 
administrative responsibility. 
We are a church body. We are 
not entirely isolated and we 
have to work together in 
resolving mutual church prob- 

The statement was made by a 
high church official that the 
General Conference has 
■ awesome ' ' powers and could 
disband a union or conference 
if it failed to take proper 
action. Could you expand on 
this possibility? 
If a union were to be in 
rebellion against the church, 
that union could be voted out 
of the General Conference at a 
General Conference session. 
That is the only way we have 
to disband a union. 

/ understand that the General 
Conference has asked some of 
our union officials to resign 
but they declined to do so. I'm 
wondering if this is c 

Will there be any availabiltv 
to the laity of the audit report 
produced by a national CPA 

You have posed a very real 
and very valid kind of concern 
that we have faced. We feel 
that when boards and com- 
mittees have heard the facts, 
they ought to be in a position 
to state whether they believe 
some kind of discipline is 
indicated. 1 know it is putting 
a great deal on a committee, 
but these are some of the 
things that we need to face as 
we think of the good of the 
whole rather than our particu- 
lar location. 

Will the General Conference 
consider getting involved in 
some of those situations? 
We will be involved in each 
one of them. There will be a 
mix of officers from the North 
American Division and the 
General Conference at each of 
these locations when matters 
of discipline are taken up. 
Together we will be able to 
find our way through it. 

Is it proper for the General 
Conference to do the dis- 
ciplining of somebody who has 

' Officials in the General Con- 
ference knew that unions and 
conferences had investments 
with Davenport. Yet very little 
was done. Is it because of the 
failure of the business [Daven- 
port] that these people are 
being tried? 

It is true that we were aware of 
the loans being made to the 
real estate investment pro- 
gram of Dr. Davenport. At the 
time, it seemed they were very 
profitable, financially. There 
were many individuals who 
became intoxicated with this 
and felt it was going to go on 
forever. In 1968 the General 
Conference took an action 
clearly setting forth specific 
guidelines that should be met. 
Meetings were held beginning 
in 1971 on through 1978 where 
the union treasurers and trust 
officers in North America were 
brought together. Each time 
they went over these matters 
and caution was given. 
We set up guidelines that 
were straight enough so, had 
they been followed, nobody 
would have invested anything 
with Dr. Davenport. 
It was unfortunate that things 
seemed to be going so well for 
a while that those who should 
have been the enforcers of 
policy, simply disregarded it. 
As a result, we are all paying a 
price. We all must share some 
of the responsibility. 

At this point, we have not 
asked anyone to resign, 
though 1 am not going to say 
that we may not give that 
counsel to some as we have 
further opportunity to discuss 
it with them. 

Could it be possible that the 
church policy of using the tithe 
to be invested is not in 
harmony with the Bible or the 
Spirit of Prophecy? 
It is not the policy of the 
Seventh-day Adventist church 
to invest tithe money in stocks 
or bonds or real estate. We 
felt extremely unhappy when 
we found that 5700,000- 
5800,000 was tithe money. 
This money should never have 
been invested in this type of 

What action is contemplated 
if the recommendations are 
not followed by the local 
conferences? Can we expect 
that there will be a compliance 
report within the next few 

We are willing to follow this 
thing through to its ultimate 
conclusion. If a committee, 
after hearing what the recom- 
mendation is, refuses to take 
action, they will have to be 
responsible for the con- 

"we are all paying 
a price." 

It will then be our intention to 
ask the General Conference 
Committe to request that the 
conference or union call 
special session of the con- 
stituency. We will feel much 
more satisfied with any 
decision that they arrive at, 
than merely an executive com-

perform the National Anthem, 
as arranged by Southern Col-

the start of the Hawk's game 
with the Philadelphia 76ers. 

According to Qualley, it was

that the engagement was 
made. "We've ordered tickets 
through Mark for the last 
three years," Qualley said. 
"When 1 presented the idea

Campbell and Associates, 
Inc., a Chattanooga engineer- 
ing firm, has been on the 
campus of Southern College 
conducting a survey concern- 
ing energy usage and waste. 

Because the college spends 
over a million dollars a year 
for utilities, this survey was 
requested to help find ways to 
lower this cost. 

It is possible that a special 
system will be necessary to 
automatically control all 
lights, water heaters, fans, air 
conditioners, elevators, etc. 
that needlessly waste energy 
in various places on campus. 
The system will operate from 
a central computer and will 
automatically shut-down such 
energy-consuming devices 

during certain times, like 
vacations and summer. 

Besides the system, other 
energy-saving ideas have 
been suggested, such as in- 
sulating and burying steam 
pipes, and controlling lights 
by a photo cell. 

"This system could take 
anywhere from 3 months to 1 
year to install and is going to 
cost," states Rodney Dupree, 
a representative of the firm. 
"But we won't know anything 
for sure until the middle of 

It is possible that this project 
could be financed up to 50% 
by the Department of Energy, 
if deemed worthwhile. How- 
ever, nothing can be decided 
until the research is finished. 

Sixty- one first semester 
nursing students were dedi- 
cated before an assembly of 
families and friends in the 
Collegedale church on Satur- 
day, March 14. 

Elder Jerry Morgan, youth 
pastor at the Collegedale 
Seventh-day Adventist 

church, was chosen by the 
class to be the speaker. 
"Somehow, the nursing pro- 
fession has been recognized as 
very special," Morgan said. 
"Nurses ... are set aside and 
consecrated to a divine and 
sacred purpose. Yet if I was 
going to dedicate myself to 
something," he added, "I 
better be able to enjoy it for 
the next 40 plus years. Too 
often once we get on the job, 
we find that reality is a long 
way from idealism." Morgan 
then shared some steps on 
how to avoid job burnout. 

1. Learn how to be 
dissatisfied with your per- 
formance so you will continue 
to grow. 

. 2. Learn to think in 
Principles and not just in facts. 

■*■ Look for and grow with 

4. Learn to expand your 
education. Go beyond . . . 
Don't limit yourself 
nursing. Become 
rounded person. 

•"closing, Morgan challenged 
th e nurses. "Today you are 
6°>ng to be dedicated. My 

hope is that : 
you and say, 'there is some- 
thing special about that 
nurse.' That is what I call 

During the program, several 
members of the class per- 
formed musical selections and 
a representative from Gideon 
International presented the 
class with a small white New 
Testament. Elvie Swinson 
then called roll and each 
student rose to light his 
candle. Encircling the dark- 
ened church with their lighted 
candles, the class recited the 
Nightingale Pledge to commit 
their lives to purity and the 
faithful practice of nursing. 

The program closed with the 
nurses singing their class 
song, "What a Friend We 
Have in Jesus." 

Ellen Gilbert, Nursing Divi- 
sion Chairman, told the South- 
ern Accent that having a 
dedication and not a nurse's 
capping is a tradition. "We 
prefer to call it a dedication 
because we have more of a 
spiritual emphasis than an 
emphasis on apparel." 

Colleen Barrow suggested 
that the capping ceremony 
was done away with because 
of the increasing number of 
male nursing students. The 
Semester's class had 15 men, 
the highest number ever. 

Canadian Brass coming 

TO ^\^ byOlckSird 

The Canadian Brass, an 
internationally-known brass 
ensemble, will perform in 
concert on Saturday night, 
March 26, at 8:00 p.m. in 
Southern College's Physical 
Education Center. . 

Throughout the musical 
world the Canadian Brass 
have gained a reputation for 
forming new paths into un- 
charted areas of music for 
brass. Since their formation in 

1970, The Brass

A I A to meet at And re ws 


The Adventist Intercollegiate 
Association will hold its an- 
nual convention at Andrews 
University from April 1-4. 
Student Association officers 
from 10 of the Adventist 
colleges in the United States 
will meet to discuss problems 
they had as student leaders, 
and ways to solve them, and 
attend training workshops on 
practical subjects. 

AIA has come under fire from 
some SA officers in recent 
years because of a lack of 
direction and practical use- 
fullness. Mike Seaman, AIA 
President and '82 SMC grad- 
uate, vigorously defended his 
organization. "This year we 
have been rebuilding AIA," 
Seaman told the Southern 
Accent. "We have re-estab- 

lish stronger ties among the 
SA officers and have proposals 
to establish communication 
among officers. We have 
started to work on a proposal 
with the North America Divi- 
sion to establish a student loan 
program for students at 
Adventist schools, one of our 
greatest achievements," 
Seaman emphasized, "de- 
veloping a convention that 
meets the original purpose of 
AIA--a lot of training instead 
of just discussion on how to 
improve AIA." 

Other SA officers have 
questioned the usefulness of 
AIA in relationship to its cost. 
Seaman, however, contends 
the cost is minimal. "AIA 
costs each SA 19 cents per 
full-time equivalant student. 

The AIA total dues for South- 
ern College is about $100 for 
the whole year. 

The biggest costs of the 
convention are paid by the 
sponsoring college or univer- 
sity and not by the Student 

"I will admit," Seaman said, 
"that the AIA convention has 
not been worth the money in 
the past but we are hoping to 
eliminate that problem." 

Joseph Robertson, Southern 
College's SA Vice-President, 
also is optimistic about AIA. 
"AIA has improved in organi- 
zation and structure, ' ' he 
stated. "Under the leadership 
of Mike Seaman, the con- 
vention will be far more 
worthwhile and well worth our 

virtuosity and ensemble play- 
ing of remarkable unanimity," 
the Canadian Brass have per- 
formed in Canada and the 
U.S., as well as Europe, 
China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, 
and the Soviet Union. In 1977. 
the Brass became the first 
Western musical ensemble to 
cross the Chinese border, as 
part of a cultural exchange 
program arranged by 
Canada's Prime Minister 
Pierre Trudeau. 

The Canadian Brass have 
recently signed a contract with 
CBS Masterworks. arranged 
cross-over material, in addi- 
tion to their classical interpre- 
tations. Their first record is to 
be released in the next few 

The group is made up of five 
classically-trained musicians: 
Frederic Mills and Ronald 
Romm (trumpets), Graeme 
Page (French horn), Eugene 
Watts (trombone), and 
Charles Daellenbach (tuba). 
Their repertoire ranges from 
the classical works of Bach. 
Handel, and Purcell, to rag- 
time works by Jelly Roll {j 
Morton and Scott Joplin. the 
avant-garde works of Lukas 
Foss, and the hits of Fats

news pap e r ? 

Exactly what constitutes a "Christian" newspaper? Is the 
Accent a "Christian" newspaper just because Southern 
College is a Christian college? Or is it a "Christian" paper 
because the staff and content make it way? 

I believe that a newspaper is considered "Christian" 
because of the views of its staff, and in that way the content 
is affected. However, this does not mean that everything 
that is printed in the Accent has to be totally religious and 

r tli L -

Letting the students a 
one way of getting student input i) 
has caused several debates to oc 

but this too is good. It is better than the apathy that is so 
prevalent on this and other Christian college campuses. As 
long as the editorial policy is to print every letter we receive, 
providing we have the space, then we will print it. The 
editorial staff does not discriminate between letters, and the 
way an order is decided upon is mostly dependant upon 
avaiable space and layout rules. 

It may be that this section is being taken advantage of. But 
if it is, then censorship of letters will be the only way to keep 
the Letters "kosher." If a letter is printed that is offensive to 
some students, then they should be allowed to write letters in 
response. If censorship is required to keep the newspaper 
"Christian", then we might as well do away with the Letters 
section totally. 

I am not sure that this is the answer. Perhaps my view of a 
Christian newspaper is false. If it is. then maybe we should 
use censorship in our paper. I don't think it is, though, and 
I'm willing to bet that most of the students don't think so 

A "Christian" newspaper should represent high ideals and 
standards, but an editor's personal views whould not stand in 
the way of presenting the news. I have the Editorial section. 
You have the Letters.

Take The SC Challenge 

What Do i Knovv!^ 
I Just Graduated 
rauRoM academy! J 



Dear Editor, 

After reading your editorial 
in last weeks' Accent, I was 
very impressed with the clar- 
ity and truths of your state- 
Southern College, with its 
tradition of fine academic 
performance, attracts stu- 
dents from around the world. 
Students come for many 
reasons including advanced 
educational facilities, guar- 
anteed job placement and a 
wide variety of internships 

(which some colleges call 
"hands-on" experience). But 
there's more-much more to 
Southern. Take for example 
the campus which has more 
green grass than chipped de- 
caying sidewalks, the baseball 
fields, the dormitories which 
are modern and don't have 
temperamental, spastic fire 
alarms that sound several 
times per weekend. Take for 
example the dormitory deans 
who are friendly and want to 
find out who you are and ask if 

they can help you in some 
way. Take for example the 
high caliber of the professors 
and support personnel here at 
Southern. Also consider the 
comfortable, relaxed atmos- 
phere of the college, exam 
week not withstanding. 

Does it sound too good to be 
true? Well, that is the 
Southern College difference. 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to reply to the 
suggestion in the March 17 
Accent ("Speak Up") that 
what Southern College needs 
to boost school spirit are 
fraternities, sororities and in- 
tercollegiate sports. I do not 
know whether the one ad- 
vocating these views has at- 
tended a public university 
where such activities abound 
but I have. The University of 
Iowa (Iowa City) boasts more 
than a dozen fraternity and 
sorority houses separate from 
its charming co-ed dorms 
(where Daily l yian reports of 
prankster fires and youthful 
sex are frequent). One fra- 
ternity knew the citv police 
quite well, for they had busted 
the place twice to make arrests 
for selling beer to minors. 
Others featured all-night par- 
ties, bizarre and even life- 
threatening initiation rites 
and copies of teachers' exams 
and former students' research 
papers at bargain prices. One 
non-Chnstian student told me 
she had refused her mother's 
Pto.join .a sorority s,atin 8 

that she wished to preserve 
her virginity. A sorority gal in 
one class 1 taught broke her 
leg in a wild fraternity-sorority 
lawn party; another fraternity 
chap turned in a paper which 
he had finished while "under 
the influence of" (quite evi- 
dent on his breath)-it was 
pure balderdash. A third-this 
one a super-spirited sports 
jock for the Hawk's wrestling 
team-handed in a purchased 
(S3.00 per page) term paper: 
my exposure of his fraud went 
all the way to the Dean of the 
College-but because he was a 
star on the team, they slapped 
his hand with an F and kept 

Sports and school spirit-is 
that when the crowd shouts 
themselves hoarse on Satur- 
day afternoon because of the 
"spirit" they find in liquid 
torm in those pocket flasks 
Hawk s fans are famous for? 
0r is that shown by phone 
calls from coaches for 30 
mmutes (in my case) urging 
teaching assistants to "let this 
gal pass" because, after all, 
she s our star runner? (But 

vrite two complete 
coach!) Even my 
history professors [here were 
upset about that incident. 

No. thanks; even if we could 
have some form of acceptable 
SDA fraternities or sororities, 
have you considered the cost 
of building their houses, the 
expense to students for the 
parties, pins, blazers am) 
other gimics, or to the college 
for supervising them? 

I would like to suggest in- 
stead that true school spirit is 
built not upon activities or 
clubs or intercollegiate sports, 
but upon close relationships 
and commitment-relation- 
ships with God, our fell"* 
students and our teachers; 
and a commitment to do 
God's will in our lives and 
advance His work in In 
world. If, as two students ano

only way to have real school 
spirit is to humbly return to 
the Christ- ordained goals and 
value system upon which this 
college was founded. When 
we manifest in our school life 
the fruits of the Spirit, then we 
will have all the spirit we 
really need. 


Brian E. Strayer 

Asst. Prof, of History 

Dear Editor: 

I am writing this letter be- 
cause I am disturbed at the 
way we as Adventist college 
students take sides on issues 
such as theater, jewelry and 
the latest topic, rock music! I 
personally took offense at the 
way the last letters made 
Cindy seem to be an immature 
person. I do not know Cindy 
personally and have only seen 
her around campus a few 
times. If she wrote her article 
for attention or for some other 
self-centered motive, it is not 
for me or anyone to judge. If 
per chance Cindy is describing 
her encounter exactly as it 
happened, it does portray 
some serious implications for 
those who own and listen to 
these groups. But this is not 
what I want to write about. 
Several writers took time in 
last week's issue to make light 
or rationalize away the prob- 
lems that we as Adventist 
young people fail to deal with 

I agree with Culpepper's 
final statement as to the 
number of young people leav- 
ing the church and why they 
do. To many, there are too 
many inconsistencies within 
the church. In a logical way of 
looking at things, it is wrong 
to sanction a Barry Manilow 
album and criticize and con- 
demn a Van Halen or Black 
Sabbath album. Cannot the 
devil be just as effective in one 
as the other? 

But if there are no incon- 
sistencies in our logic, let us 
leave the choice up to the 
individual and if he feels fairly 
comfortable with most rock 
i his business.

Dear Editor: 
I feel I should respond to 
Chuck Wisener's letter which 
appeared in last week's Ac- 
cent. The letter was one of the 
most immature letters I've 
seen in the Accent in my four 
years here. Miss Torgeson 
stated her opinion and Wise- 
ner tried to make her out to be 
a total fool. This if not meant 
to be a defense of Miss 
Torgeson's opinion, but sim- 
ply to ask you a question. Isn't 
there any way to keep trite and 
idiotic letters out of this 
"Christian" publication.

enough "beat" and "tempo" 
so that I can break loose on the 

We think we are using selec- 
tive judgement but really we 
are just forsaking one type of 
evil for another. Jesus is 
coming back to finish the final 
touches on the plan of re- 
demption. He may be here by 
June, July or August of this 
year, perhaps sometime next 
year. Satan has us where he 
wants us if we are choosing 
sides on which album we 
should buy, or which movie is 
the one that Dean Schlisner 
would approve of. That is 
exactly where Satan wants us. 
As long as we don't openly 
commit ourselves to Christ we

already lost the battle and is 
determined that you will too. 

Please remember that Christ 
put all on the line for you. We 
sometimes lose sight of that 
fact with all the quarreling we 
do on imposed standards. I 
know that we hate to have a 
group of people dictate to us 
that which is right or wrong. 
The church was not meant to 
be a perfect institution, but it 
is the organization upon which 
"God bestows His supreme 
regard." I want the readers to 
know that I have not yei 
attained to those standards 
which I have just spoken 
about. But with the grace of 
God. and because He loves me 
very much I will reach a higher 
ground where I can feel more 
at peace with God--so can you ! 

David L. Weeden 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to defend myself. 

First of all, I was not the only 
one who felt the same things I 
mentioned. The friends with 
me also felt them (they will 
remain anonymous). If, in 
fact, the records give off bad 
vibes, that should tell us to 
stay away from them. 

I am not offended by those 
who like rock music and 
defend it, because I was once 
a rock music defender. But 
now I no longer listen to it. 
Rock music and 1 do not get 
along and I will speak up 
against it any time I feel it is 

Perhaps I should mention 
that I was not out to see if 1 
could get bad feelings from 
the album. It was just some- 
thing that happened. 

I was not overcome with 
emotion when I picked up the 
album. This is one time ration- 

; inspired by the devil. 

Cindy Torgesen 

Dear Editor: 
You wouldn't go to a doctor 
to get your car fixed, would 
you? So why argue amongst 
ourselves? Let's ask the ex- 
We're talking here with Jerry 
Garcia of the Grateful Dead; 
"Excuse me sir, does Satan 
have anything to do with rock 
music? A Friend of the Devil is 
a Friend of Mine. (AH itali- 
cized replies are the actual 
lyrics or names ot songs or 
albums of bands mentioned.) 
"I see. What kind of lifestyle 
do you guys maintain? We're 
living on Reds, Vitamin C. and 
Cocaine, all a friend can say is 
ain't it a shame. "Ah, well, 
thank you." 

We're calling Mick 
Jagger of the Rolling Stones, 
"Hello, Mick?" "Just call me 
Lucifer." "Yeah, sure, what- 
ever you say. Tell me, do you 
know Jesus Christ?" "Well 
sure, just the other day / ran 
twenty red lights in his honor, 
thank ya Jesus, thank ya 
Lord. "OK catch you later." 
Here's a good one. John 
(Ozzy) Osborne, one time lead- 
er of the controversial group, 

Black Sabbath, "Excuse me. 
Ozzy. To what do you attribute 
the success of your band?" 
"We sold our souls for Rock 
'n'Roll.'"'0\\, that's nice." 
"We're on the line with 
Angus Young, the fellow who 
replaced Bon Scott in the band 
AC/DC." "Tell me Angus, 
what city are you playing 
next?" "Oh we're taking the 
'highway to Hell." "Say, what 
kind of music do you guys 
listen to?" "Hells Bells, of 
course!" "Of course, I should 
have known." 

I also tried to- contact Jimi 
Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and 
Keith Moon but found their 
lines disconnected. 

Now I ask you, isn't it absurd 
to think that such nice fellows 
as this would have anything to 
do with Satan? I mean every- 
body knows that spiritual dis- 
cernment is nothing but emo- 
tion! Let's quit being nit-picky 
and invite Blue Oyster Cult to 
play at the church for Vespers 
sometime. What do you say?

Pastor Gordon Bietz 

Once upon a time in Fenton 
Forest a great controversy 
arose. It caused such hard 
feelings and caused such a stir 
in the forest that for a time 
there was some anxiety on the 
part of Wise Old Owl about 
whether the forest would sur- 

|t happened like this. It had 
always been a rule in the 
that no animal could litter. AH 
of their garbage was to be 
appropriately buried. The law 
read "Bury Your Garbage" 
and signs were posted all over 
the forest. 

Well, that law went along 
fine until one day Randy 
Raccoon and his family 
brought an objection to the 
law. It seems that they were 
very clean animals generally 
and found that the require- 
ment that all garbage must be 
buried did not take into con- 
sideration their habits of leav- 
ing some food leftovers for the 
birds to clean up for them. 
They thought that the law 
should be amended to allow 
for their practice of careful 

placement of leftovers for 
other animals in the forest. 

That seemed to be reason- 
able and animals who 
depended on some of Randy's 
garbage were especially in 
favor of the amendment. So 
the law was changed to read, 
"Bury your garbage, unless 
there are other animals in the 
forest who depend on your 
garbage for their own food 
supply." The signs that had 
been placed in strategic places 
all around the forest were now 
enlarged so that they could 
accommodate the new reading 
of the law. 

All went fine in the forest 
until some of the animals, 
Bert, the Bear, and Wendell 
Wolverine began to leave all 
kinds of garbage around. 
When they were questioned 
about their unhealthful and 
unkept ways by wise Old Owl 
they claimed exemption from 
the law based on the amend- 
ment for, Bert said, "All the 
animals of the forest profited 
from his garbage because 
there was so much of it." 

It was pointed out to Bert that 
when he left too much garbage 
for the scavengers in the 
forest to clean up, it rotted and 
smelled, but Bert said as far 
as he was concerned, it 
smelled good. 

The forest council did not 
agree with Bert and so they 
amended the law to limit the 
amount of garbage that could 
be left for the scavengers of 
the forest. The newly painted 
signs now read, "Bury your 
garbage, unless there are 
other animals in the forest 
who depend on your garbage 
for their food supply, but in no 
case leaving more of said 
refuse in one location for such 
a length of time as to result in 
the emanation of inappro- 
priate odors."

painter, was pleased with all 
the business and hired more

Elder Russell L. Staples, 
Associate Professor of Mis- 
sions at Andrews University, 
will be the featured speaker 
for the Religion Retreat to be 
held this weekend. 

Staples will be speaking on 
four areas that are the basis 
for practical Christian living, 
which will include "Major 
Concepts of Salvation, and 
Difficulties in the Classical 
Justification Position. 

Sponsored by the Religion 
Department, the "retreat 
will be in Talge Hall Chapel, 

Big Meadow some of the grass 
fell from her mouth and was 
not eaten. In the light of the 
fact that this grass was not 
appropriate food for other 
forest animals, it was classi- 
fied as "non-edible garbage" 
and needed to be buried. 
Madeline objected inasmuch 
as she had always eaten like 
that and. in fact, would have 
to hire a ground hog to bury 
her uneaten grass. That last 
fact may have been the reason 
that it was Gordon Groundhog 
who dragged Madeline to the 
council for he didn't like her 
walking around the meadow 
anyway. He had lost one of 
his secret tunnels because she 
had stepped in it. 

Well, the council considered 
carefully the case and deter- 
mined that it would really be 
too much to expect of 
Madeline Moose to bury her 
grass, so they amended the 
rule to exclude "refuse that 
would, in the natural course of 
events, decay without inordi- 
nate environmental disrup- 
tion." The council was 

becoming unhappy with the 
apparent lack of under- 
standing over this rule and sc 
they also ordered the engi- 
neering department to in- 
crease the placement of the 
signs and their visibility so 
that the message would be 
clearly communicated to the 
forest community. 

Sammy applied for a larger 
b get as he employed more 
sign painters to enlarge the 
signs which were now being 
placed everywhere in the 
forest. He was very pleased 
with his business and was able 
to pay Gordon Groundhog a 
bit of a bonus for his good

Ramblings of a fried mind 

Have you ever had a cynical 
tjav? I'm having one right 
now. In fact, it started when I 
made myself some oatmeal 
this morning. "Stir oats into 
briskly boiling water." Brisk- 
ly? Is that a word for boiling 
water? I'd suppose we'd all be 
brisk if we were boiled. Who's 
the guy on the Quaker Oats 
box? Why is he smiling so 
much? Probably because he's 
got a monopoly on oats. Why 
is it Quaker? Are there Catho- 
lic oats too? What's this with 
the honey jar? "Retains all 
original minerals and ele- 
ments." Sounds full of metal 
to me. Is that like "fortified 



cereal boxes. I bought a box of 
"Halfsies" yesterday. Does 
that mean it's half full? Maybe 
it's for halfwits. Am I getting 
insulted? There's that dumb 
Quaker guy again. (Does he 
like my kitchen or something?) 

Maybe Halfsies are for people 
who don't want to go all the 
way, just half-way. Can that 
mean something else? Did you 
ever fight for the free inside? 
Did you ever win? Did you 
ever buy a cereal just for the 
prize? Did you know that if 
you opened the bottom first 
you could get the prize easier? 
Did you know that if you forgot 
the opened bottom, Cap'n 
Crunch would be getting 
crunched all over the floor? 
What happened to Quisp? 
Why do sugar-cereals have 
prizes and not Product 19? 
These are serious questions. 
Did you ever stick Chiquita 
banana stickers on your nose? 
Here's a can of Shasta soda. It 
says they want a pop. Should 
we give it to them? If they 
wanted a soda, they'd ask for 
it. It says it's strawberry soda. 
That's why the letters are red. 
You wouldn't find a red root- 

beer can, would you? Why are 
Sprite cans green? Sprite's 
not green. It says real-lemon 
lime flavor- exclamation 
mark. Am I supposed to be 
excited too? Here's some Oil 
ofOlay. It says"Become beau- 
tiful-use Oil of Olay." I never 
used it. Am I ugly? No 
comment. Oil of Olay looks 
like Pepto-Bismol. Is it? do 
you remember Dippity-do? I 
used to smear it as a kid. My 
mother smeared me. Here's a 
bottle of Thousand Island 
dressing. It says that it is "A 
simply delightful salad dres- 
sing." Delightful? Should I 
talk to it? What do I do if it 
answers? Why does Ma Bell 
keep wanting me to reach out 
and touch someone? You 
could get your fingers broken. 
Ever see a new car ad? Why is 
there always a bikini-clad 
woman lying on the hood? 
Does she come with it? If not. 

they should tell her to go home 
and buy some clothes. Am I 
missing something? Remem- 
ber being in mixed company in 
academy, at a faculty home 
watching TV? Remember how 
quiet it got when Cathy Rigby 
came on? It was very embar- 
rassing. It must have been 
more embarrassing to find out 
you couldn't reply on Rely 
anymore. What's happening 
to our country? Who is 
Jorache? Is that French for 
"HORSE" I always see a 
little horse head on Jordache 
jeans. Maybe its 

saying you have to have a 
horse-like rear. (I wear Levis). 
What about Gloria Vander- 
bilt? She's so ugly. Maybe she 
thinks Pepto-Bismol is Oil of 
Olay. Why is her name on her 
jeans? Maybe it makes her 
feel good to know millions are 
sitting on her name. She's 
strange. Strange and ugly. 

Maybe that's why she has so 
much more money than 1 do. 
Here's the cover for Good 
Housekeeping. On the cover it 
says. "As she drew back 
breathlessly, she longed to 
hear his words." They write 
that so women standing in line 
at Red Food Store will buy it. 
and read the cheap novel 
inside. It usually works. My 
wife fell for it, that's why I'm 
reading it. What is it I don't 
say that she longs to hear? Is 
it, "1 took out the garbage?" 
Who draws back breathlessly? 
I suppose they do that at the 
business office a lot. 
Hmmm, "...he took her 
creamy white shoulders in his 
strong hands. She swooned ; 




stared hard at her lush, red 
lips..." Not bad. They must be 
fortified with iron.

Hospital request 

The Tennessee Health Facil- 
ities Commission denied a 
request by Adventist Health 
Systems/ Sunbelt to construct 
a 12.7 million dollar hospital in 

The twelve member board 
met on March 23 to review 
AHS/Sunbeit's application 
and to study comments made 
at a March 8 meeting in 
Chattanooga. The board 
voted to deny the request by a^ 
vote of 5-3 with two absten- 
tions. Two board members 
were absent. 

Despite the setback Jan 
Rushing, AHS/Sunbelt vice- 
president also suggested Jhat 
ization still hopes to build the 
hospital. Rushing told the 
Chattanooga Times, "We are 
very committed as an organ- 
ization to continue to plan to 
build a primary health 

, thii 


disheartened, but we fully 
intend to carry on with build- 
ing the health care center." 
Don Self, a spokesman for 

AHS/Sunbelt told the 
Southern Accent, "We are 
looking into the appeal pro- 
cess. We are hoping things 
will indicate we can win." 

"A number of people have 
been very helpful," Self said. 
"State Senator Ray Albright 
has been very supportive. 
Representative David 

Copeland may introduce a bill 
in the Tennessee House to 
decertify beds in the Chat- 
tanooga area so that a hospital 
in the Collegedale area would 
be more likely." 

Self indicated that there 
seems to be a general 
groundswell of support for the- 
new hospital. "We are look- 
ing at community leaders to 
see what they recommend. 
We will make a final decision 
will be in the next two months. 

If we re-submit (the appli- 
cation), the process will take 
about a year." A new appli- 
cation would cost $12,700.

Moot court meets 

by Leanne Facundus 
A jury of 6 women and 5 men 
found for the plaintiff in the 
amount of $8500 Monday, 
March 28, 1983, in the trial of 
Peter Pan Carpets, Inc. vs. 
Replacement Parts Company 
at the Southern College 
Second Annual Moot Court. 
The plaintiff, Mr. Cecil Golfe 
(Jeff Krall), owner of Peter 
Pan Carpets, Inc., won his suit 
for a recovery of total damages 
that had been incurred upon 
the purchase of some carpet 
machine parts from Mr. 
Wayne (Mike McClung) of 
Replacement Parts Company. 
Despite Defense "Attorney" 
Charlie Hammer's well-pre- 
pared defense that the carpet 
machine failed to work be- 
cause the dye being used in 
the machine to color the carpet 
had lint in it, Prosecuting 
"Attorney" Greg Mitrakas, 
was able to show the jury 
through the testimonies of 
several witnesses (Rick Nail 
and Tim Beaulieu) that the 
parts were indeed faulty. 
Originating in Attorney Glen 
McColpin's business law 
classroom at SC years ago, 
Moot Court is a re-enactment 

of court cases that have actu- 
ally been tried in courts of law. 
Prepared mainly for and by

will be prohibited during the 
three days before test week. 

J.T. Shim presented a 
proposal from Don Welch,

called for printing student 
phone numbers in the Joker, 
thus making the Numerique 
unnecessary. Welch had 
estimated that the combina- 
tion would save $500 a year. 
However, SA President Alvin 
Franklin stated that the sav- 
ings would be, at the most,

<J Surprises 

Life is always full of surprises, both good and bad. 
Adventist church members have been getting a bunch of 
surprises lately. Many church members were surprised 
(bad) when they heard church organizations had lost over 
$20,000,000 in the Davenport scandal. 

Many church members were surprised (good) when the 
General Conference appointed the Presidental Review 
Commission to investigate corruption and incompetence in 
the church and to deal out fair discipline. 
When Neal Wilson announced he and the GC officers and 
voted to accept Presidental Review Commission's report and 
print the names of those being disciplined, many church 
members were surprised (bad) and very upset at the thought 
of public "humiliation" for the guilty. 

The General Conference sprang another surprise when they 
announced the names of those being disciplined would not be

any person or group were being disciplined. I decided to test 
what Wilson said and, to my surprise (good), I received the 
information with a minimum of hassle. 

Where does this all take us? How can the average church 
member relate to these "surprises?" The individual could 
lose faith in the leadership of the General Conference and 
everything they stand for. He could say that things will work 
out in the end. Or he could go on his merry way. waiting for 
the next "surprise" to break. 

Judging by the pace of things, they won't have long to wait.

Dear Editor, 

I just wanted to send you a 
short note of appreciation for 
the positive editorial you 
wrote about our college. Many 
of us in administration were 
distressed when we saw 
CUC's ad about working in a 
cookie factory. 1 feel that it is a 
back-handed slam at what we 
consider here a positive situa- 
tion. It is very fortunate, that 
through the years, hundreds 
of students have been able to 
work their way through col- 
lege by working at McKee 
Baking Company. W e hope to 
Dear Editor. 

I am writing in regards to 
Brian Strayer's letter to the 
editor in the March 24 issue of 
the Southern Accent. I feel I 
must reiterate my desire to

statement was not to promote 
or to advocate the installation 
of fraternities or sororities on 
this campus. Since this point ' 
was obviously missed. 1 feel it

ment as well as other sources 
of practical jobs that you 
mentioned in your editorial. 
Jobs on this campus are 
available for any students who 
have an adequate schedule 
and are willing to work at any 
job. As evidence of our com- 
mitment to the student em- 
ployment situation, we have 
established a separate office 
and increased all the wages on 
the campus to $3.00 an hour 
beginning January I, 1983. 
We also have instituted an 

incentive wage plan for stu- 
dents who work a certain 
number of hours in a depart-

increase their earnings and be 
of more assistance in the

colleges within the denomi- 
nation could be involved. All 
we need is a chance to try 
something new, something ail 
could benefit from. What's 
wrong with showing school 
spirit? What could possibility 
be wrong with intercollegiate 
sports within our own 
denomination? Who knows, it 
might be just the thing to let 
the students express their 
loyalty to S.C. and prove to 
everyone else that we're 
No. 1!

always marveled at the ani- 
mosity that seems to exist 
between the two schools and 
the two Unions. CUC is really 
not a bad place. Its small size 
(comparatively) makes it more 
personable than good old 
Southern and at least as 

I've had to deal with various 
faculty or administrative per- 
sonnel at CUC for some reason 
or another throughout the past 
four years, and have found 
them very helpful and gra- 
cious. (Although it would be 
hard to beat our own dear 
Mrs. Elam!) As far as work 
goes, it should he obvious that 

CUC has more job opportuni- 
ties than SC being next door to 
Washington D.C.--a bit larger 
city than is Chattanooga or 
Collegedale! But as I always 
say, CUC is a good school in 
the wrong place. For me. 
Southern is a better school in 
the right place. I think the 
respective schools should em- 
phasize their own unique good 
points without dragging out 
the negative aspects of their 
"rivals." After all, aren't both 
schools really working under 
the same "Manager" for the 
same purpose?!

Dear Editor, 

For the past two weeks now. I 
have read the letters section 
on rock music with an interest. 

Even though I am hearing 
impaired, I appreciate music 
very much. I think it's a 
beautiful language of its own. 
I think if I could hear, I'd 

My sisters were rock music 
lovers. They'd always put the 
volume very high, and there 
were heavy beats which I 
didn't appreciate. 

About Cindy's letter--I be- 
lieve, she just wanted to tell us 
of her experience and her 
thanks for the guidance. But 
still, I believe strongly that we " 
must decide for ourselves and 

if people think we are strange 
or wrong to believe and do 
what is right while it's wrong 
to them we should not let it 
bother us. 
Besides, we can't judge any- 
thing if it's bad or good by 
looking at it. For example, as 
I'm a bookworm, I sometimes 
pick books to read because 
they look attractive. Instead, 
they sometimes turn out to be 

Dear Editor, 

1 wish to address one rather 
ambiguous statement in Mr. 
Strayer's letter last week. He 
said that 90 percent of Advent- 
ist youth have attended the 
dreaded movie theater. Does 
this mean that 90 percent of us 
have gone to 100 percent of 
the movies that come out or 90 
percent have gone to 1 percent 
of the movies that are re- 

Your statement holds no 
water with me because movies 
are of different calibers. There 
are the Walt Disney "Happy 
Ending" movies. These are 
the ones that end tip as 
"benefit films" at Adventist 
outings. There are adventure 
movies i.e. Radiers of the Lost 
Ark, Star Wars, and High 
Road to China. These are 
movies that are highly enter- 
taining and don't make you 
feel like you've wasted your 
time. There are movies that 
make you laugh. Then there is 
a small group of movies known 
as skin flicks. There are the 
ones I think you are referring 

to. And I have to agree that 
they are not good for the 
mind. However, that needs to 
be learned through ex- 
perience, not through organi- 
zational rules. 

When I learned that the 
movie screening committee 
had rejected Star Wars, my 
mind went into a spin. I could 
not believe that such an 
entertaining movie could be 
rejected. All the movie does 
the whole way through is push 
the idea of good winning over 
evil. Is this so bad that it 
cannot be shown on a good 
over evil campus? 

The other part of Mr. 
Strayer's letter that needs 
questioning is that 80 percent 
of Adventist males have im- 
bibed alcohol. I think before 
we make statements about the 
inherently evil drink we need 
to read Ecclisiastes 10:19. It 
reads: "The table has its 
pleasures and wine makes r 
cheerful life; and money ■' 
behind it all." NEW English 
Bible. But the message is the 
same in other versions. Not 
only that, but when a nominee 

for deacon becomes a deacon, 
he takes an oath from the 
Bible that says he will not be 
of much wine. Hmmm. 
Another interesting thought is 
that Jesus' first miracle was 
changing water to what? 
Kafree Cola? unfermended 
grape juice? Milk? No, wine. 
This sure is confusing. The 
Bible says one thing and 
others say somthing else. 
I would like to state right now 
that I don't think hard liquor 
should be consumed and I'm 
not an advocate of drinking, 
but we as Christians need to 
search for answers for these 
questions in the Bible-not 
take someone elses word for 
it. I guess this is why I have 
been branded a radical by 
certain people around here- 
because I have questions and I 
ask them. We were given 
minds to use them not let

Pastor Gordon Biet^ 

Once upon a time there was a 
teacher in Fenton Forest. The 
teacher came from outside the 
forest and was sure that he 
had much to tell all of the 
forest inhabitants. His mes- 
sage was very important and 
he though about how to best 
communicate it. This 

teacher's name was Blake, 
Blake Blackbird. He traveled 
all over the forest seeking to 
tell other animals how to live 
better. But nobody listened. 

"Psst," said Peter Rabbit. 
"Whenever I eat garlic out 
of Farmer Jones' garden, 
everyone pays attention to me, 
so why don't you take some of 
this garlic and rub it on your 
face and you will get every- 
one's attention." 

So Blake Blackbird did as he 
was told and he went out to 
talk to the people and tell 
them what his message was. 
But nobody listened. They ran 
from him as fast as they could, 

Henry the roach 
reviews programs 

From my vantage point of the 
bleachers, 1 could view the 
whole audience. All the 
campus celebrities had come, 
including Garfield & Odie, 
Snoopy & Woodstock, and the 
little man from the Campus 
Chatter with the paint brush. 
But as 1 nibbled on an apple 
core left on the seat. I couldn't 
help noticing the absence of 
college students. Tapping one 
of my friends on the antenna, 
1 asked. "Is there a vacation 
this weekend or did someone 
call in a bomb threat?" "No," 
replied the friend, "word just 
had it that this wasn't the 
program to attend." Simul- 
taneously I stamped 4 of my 6 
feet. "This is the best 
program I've seen here at 
SC!" So, on Monday I slipped 
into Wright Hall and up to 
Dean Schlisner's office with- 
out being stepped on. Flying 
onto his note pad, I com- 
menced with my prepared 
speech on HOW-TO-PR-A- 
PROGRAM but he cut me to 
the quick. Mr. Schlisner 
stated flatly that many 
avenues were pursued to en- 
tice students to come-with 
small turn outs. Having taken 
the wind out of my wings, he 
further told me more interest- 
ing details. To begin, the 
Canadian Brass group was 
booked 14 months ago and had 
rame to the campus at an 
expense of $7,500. This group 
,s booked solid every year 
w ith roughly 120 concerts 
annually. Trying to side-track, 
I brought up the issue of the 
Chinese Circus. Five Thou- 
sand five hundred greenbacks 
a "d another year of preplan- 
ning landed these performers, 
"lis was news to my auditor 
sensors. Mr. Schlisner stated 
I ' at he and many others bend 
ver backwards to get good, 
lualitv entertainment for the 
"Went body. Cultural enrich- 
m =nt is the second reason for 

booking a performance, enter- 
tainment being the first! 
"Why don't students come to 
these great shows?" I asked. 
He didn't have an answer, so I 
knew I had him. "What would 
happen next year if there were 
no entertainment series?" 
Again, he didn't know. So, I 
wil) tell you. First, the gym 
would probably be opened, if 
you could pay a gym worker 
enough to open it. Second, 
the snack shop might be open 
and maybe even the student 
center. Third, everyone could 
go to sleep at 9:30 on Saturday 
nights, unless you were lucky 
enough to have access to a car. 
Then you could play Pac Man 
downtown until room check 
time. Sounds pretty fantastic 
doesn't it? As I turned to crawl 
away, Mr. Schlisner was pick- 
ing up the phone to cancel 
Warten Miller's ski show for 
next school year. I asked him 
not to be so hasty and to 
reconsider the matter. He 
said he would if he felt the 
students really wanted action- 
packed programs for their 
campus. This gave me food for 
thought. Now, as a roach, I 
am not inclined to bonng 
program, but have seen all 
except one of the series this 
year, I can say my time was 
well spent. Now maybe 
paying for the shows is a 
problem. The $2.50 asked of 
students and staff for both the 
Canadian Brass and Chinese 
Circus wouldn't let you see 
either anywhere else. The 
price to see the Brass in town 
would be $8-10 and who 
knows how much a plane 
ticket to Taiwan would be to 
see the other group. Mr. 
Editor, would you please ask 
the students to just stop by 
and tell Dean Schlisner they 
do appreciate the Entertain- 
ment Series. I would hate to 
spend my Saturday mghts 

holding their noses. Blake 
was discouraged. He felt he 
had an important message and 
nobody was listening. 

'Psst." said Bert Bear, 
"When I want people to listen 
to me. I just raise my voice like 
this and talk very loud and 
they can't help but listen to 
me. Here take this mega- 
phone and shout into it and 
everyone will listen." 

So Blake Blackbird did as 
Bert suggested and went into 

Fenton Forest shouting at the 
top of his lungs, but nobody 
listened. They ran from him 
holding their noses and cover- 
ing their ears. Blake just was 
not communicating. 

"Psst," said Louise Lion, 
"When I want people to listen 
to me. 1 just tell them that they 
have to stay right where they 
are and listen, or I will eat 
them alive." 

So Blake Blackbird did as 
Louise Lion suggested and

amentals of their respective 
g^es to insure a good start. 
Oolfers. read these hints and 
maybe it II take a couple of 
strokes off your score. 
by Ted Evans 

The best tip 1 could ever give 
anyone about golf without a 
doubt 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 
anquish is beyond me. But if 
you choose to ignore my most 
important tip, read on. 

Most golf instructors en- 
courage their stuents to con- 
centrate on basic funda- 
mentals as they learn to plav 

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. 

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 pointing 
to the inside of your rieht 
shoulder. e 

2. Alignment 

Shoulders, hips and feet 
should be lined up squarely to 
the ball. Many beginning 
golfers align their feet just 
fine but their hips are slightly 
left of the target line and their 
shoulders are 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 

■ 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 body 

(Now that you've got your 
grip, alignment and posture in 
correct position, you are readv 
to swing the club.) 

Golf is properly played from 
the inside of the feet through- 
out the swing until after the 
ball has been contacted. 
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 swaying. 
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 
nght foot to the outside of the

tant as is the rhythm of the 
swing The twp. key ingredi- 
ents stressed by most experts 
are having a smoooth, un- 
hurned transition at the top 
from back swing to down 
swing and have a one-piece

Tom, Dick and I were hang- 
ing around the guys' lobby. 
There wasn't much to do, 
except watch this one couple 
kiss. "How long do you think 
they've been under?" asked 
Tom. "Five minutes," whis- 
pered Dick. "Maybe they're 
pearl divers," 1 added. "I 
heard they could go without 
air for a while." 

Just then our friend Harry 
bounded in. "Hey! Check out 
the new game I just bought at 
the Mercantile!" he bellowed. 
Curious, we asked what it 
was. "It's called Southern 
Monopoly-S & M for short." 
We had to agree, it sounded 
different. "You guys want to 
play? ' ' Harry asked. We 
looked over at Mr. and Mrs. 
Pearl Diver. "Okay, we'll 

We set up the game in a few 
seconds, and chose our little 
playing pieces. Each piece 

was a miniature student wear- 
ing nothing but a barrel 
around his middle. I thought 1 
might've seen a few people 
like that coming out of the 
cashier's office. It wouldn't 
make a bad graduation gown 
either. Very appropriate. 
Tom threw a five and landed 
on the Rip-off Railroad. 
"Okay," he announced, "I'll 
buy it." "That'll be $500," 
said Harry. "$500? You own 
it?" shouted Tom. "That's 
one of the rules, Tom. Since I 
own the board, I also own the 
railroads. Sorry-but the rent's 
$200." Tom threw the money. 
"Well," said Dick, "Handed 
on 'Chance. ' I'll just pick up a 
card." He read it aloud: "You 
owe Southern College. Pay 
each player $1000, or go to jail 
for not wearing a helmet." 
Dick paled. "I'm-I'm 
ruined!" Harry smiled. "See 
ya at the cafe, Dick!" I threw 

the dice very carefully. I 
landed on Camp Road and 
stated that I wished to buy it. 
"You sure about that?" asked 
Harry. "Sure you wouldn't 
want to wait and see if you'll 
land on Student Park or some- 
thing?" "No Harry. I'm 
buying." 01' Harry was up to 
some tricks for sure. 

Harry landed on Community 
Chest. His card read: "You 
have just eaten at the C.K. 
and survived. Collect $10 from 
each player." I hated Harry 
and his game. We continued. 
"Ah." said Tom, "I've landed 
on Free Parking! Safe at last." 
"Sorry," pointed out Harry. 
"No S.C. sticker on your play- 
ing piece-pay $100." Tom's 
eyes bulged. Even that hurt. It 
looked as if he'd have to 
mortgage his houses on Api- 
son Pike. McDonald Road, 
and Ooltewah-Ringgold. I sug- 


gested to Harry that I should 
make a loan to Tom. Indig- 
nantly, he refused. "You al- 
ready owe me for two long-dis- 
tance calls when you were on 
my Collegedale Phone Co." I 
should have made them third 
party when he wasn't looking. 
1 landed on Luxury Tax. To 
wear jewelry on this spot, you 
have to pay $75 to the Dean of 
Students place, which Harry 
owned too. At least GO was in 
sight.Harry landed on thatch- 
er Hall. "Monopoly!" he 
cried. "Now I own all the 
buildings on campus! I'm 
rich-rich!" Tom and 1 politely 
stilled our yawns. I rolled a 3 
and passed GO."I finally pas^ 
sedto, I said wearily." Now to 
collect $200." "No-no!" 
smiled Harry. "On this board, 
when vou pass GO, vou pay 
S.C. $200." Sobbing, I handed 
over the money. Tom was 
basically out, so Harry rolled 

the dice. "My, my," he 
sweetlv chirped. "I've landed

why you are getting 2

Well it isn't my fault, I 
wrote the other one last

never appeared. Won't it 
be funny if its not in the

wouldn't have had to ex- 
plain why you are getting 2

shouldn't be getting any. 1 
guess 1 wouldn't send them 
to someone else I know. 
Well enough of that. Just 
wanted to say "Hi, hope

I have always hated going to funerals. I get torn up inside as 
I think about that person who is no longer alive. I remember 
all the eood times and wish things hadn't changed. This is 
the same kind of emotional upheaval I felt when I first 
learned that Dr. Knittel was leaving at the end of this school 

is looking over a job 
into Dr. Knittel's 
plush couch. The 
14-year-old academy 
ase with his friendly 

1 first met Dr. Knittel when my father wi 
at SMC. I remember being ushered 
spacious office and 
surroundings seemed 
freshman, but Dr. Knittel put me 
manner and pleasant conversation. 

After that initial meeting, Dr. Knittel never Torgot my 
name. He always impressed me with the fact that even 
though I was, at the time, just an academy student, he knew 
who I was and would speak to me whenever he saw me. 

Being good with names was only one of Dr. Knittel's strong 
points. 1 remember looking forward to his talks and 
sermons. He always got his point across with a minimum of 
words, yet he managed to pack his speeches with interesting 
stories, illustrations, and facts. 

Another area where Dr. Knittel excelled was one-on-one. 
He never seemed to mind taking the time to talk with 
students. ! remember visiting with him earlier this school 
year after I was elected Southern Accent editor. We talked 
about many different things then he said, "Ken, 1 am going 
to be straight with you. I'm not going to play footsie with the 
paper but 1 will let you know what is going on." 

That was Dr. Knittel. He wanted each of us to be informed 
so we could make logical decisions but at the same time, he 
cared. This special quality about Dr. Knittel makes the 
parting sad. Yet, at the same time, I will always have 
pleasant memories of the college president who knew how to 
relate with the students of Southern College.

Dear Editor, 

My letter is in reference to 
some comments on drinking 
made by Mr. Royce J. Earp in 
his letter appearing in the 
March 31 issue of the South- 
ern Accent. First I would like 
to say that I appreciate Mr. 
Earp saying he's "Not an 
advocate of drinking," and I 
am not writing this to debate 
the drinking issue with Mr. 
Earp or anyone else. I don't 
think it's "radical" to have 
questions and to ask them. An 
inquisitive, questioning mind 
is an active, learning mind. 
Usually the problem is 
whether we are willing to 
accept the real answers when 
we get them or if we'll dodge 
them unless they go along 
with what we think or want. 

What I would like to do is 
bring to focus some facts, 
history, and ideas about drink- 
ing, as I see them, that I 
believe are relevant and 
should be considered. 
Earp's mention of Eccl. 10:19 
and the oath of a deacon (I 
Tim. 3:8). and the water-to- 
wine miracle by Jesus at the 
wedding feast in Cana (John 
2:1-11) seems to suggest that 
the Bible may support the 
intake of wine, at least to some 
extent, and at first glance a 
contradiction does seem to be 
present. However, we might 
all be quite enlightened if we 
took a look at the meanings of 
the word "wine" in the Greek 
text. Our word "wine" is very 
enclusive, seemingly serving 
for everything from grape 
juice to grog, in the Bible. The 
wine that the Jewish people 
preferred, however, was "new 
wine" * fresh grape juice. 

Alcohol is produced in direct 
proportion to the sugar con- 
tent in a liquid. Now days the 
"Drink-making" process in- 
volves adding sugar to our 
concoctions. This feeds the 
bacteria during fermentation, 
which produces the alcohol. 
When sugar stops being 
added, the fermentation pro- 

In ancient days there was 
only natural sugar, and since 
the natural sugar content in 
grape juice is very low, the old 
(fermented) wine of the 
ancient people would have 
been only about 3% alcohol! 
One may wonder how anyone 
could possibly get drunk with 
only a 3% alcohol content. The 
Romans solved this problem 
by using a "vomitorium." In 
this way they took tull advan- 
tage of the fact that alcohol is 
absorbed into the bloodstream 
almost immediately upon con- 
sumption. They'd have their 
drinks, go throw up the un- 
wanted, leftover portion so 
they'd have room for more, 
come back to the banquet 
room, drink more, and go 
through the process a^ain and 
again until they were indeed 
successful in getting drunk. 

In polite society, however, 
people drank wine as a mix- 
ture: 1 /! of their glass or goblet 
was filled with wine having 
■about a 3% alcohol content 
and the other 2/3 was filled 
with either hot or cold water to 
dilute it. (Does that help 
explain why there were 6 
empty waterpots at the wed- 
ding in Cana?) Most decent 
people drank fresh grape juice 
or 3%; not intoxicating grog. 
So if a deacon took an oath 

"not to take too much wine", 
it seems to me that he was 
promising, at most, not to take 
much "3%", as that's about 
all there was available. Now 
that's a pretty conservative 
standpoint that the Bible 
takes, it seems to me-quite 
the opposite from giving us 
permission to drink as we 
please today! 

I agree with Earp that we as 
Christians need to search the 
Bible for answers, but I also 
believe that uneducatedly 
basing a conclusion on the 
surface reading of a couple of 
texts is not really enough. 
What about texts like these: 
"Wine is a mocker, strong 
drink is raging; and who- 
soever is deceived thereby is 
not wise {Prov. 20:1). 
"Woe unto him that giveth to 
neighbor drink, that puttetn 
thy bottle to him, and makest 
him drunken." (Hab. 2:15), 
"Neither fornicators, nor 
idolators, ... not theives, nor 
covetous, nor drunkards, ■ ■ • 
shall inherit the kingdom ol 
God." (I Cor. 6:9,10). 

So much more can be said 
about drinking. It's often an 
expression of rebellion, » 
escape, a crutch, a serious 
health hazard for the drinker 
as well as his off-spring, ana. 
in my opinion, a terrible waste 

of money. .

"Springtime in New York" 
was the theme of the annual 
S.A. Talent program pre- 
sented in the P. E. Center at 
8:00 on Saturday night. 

After a half-hour delay, em- 
cees, Steve Decker and Steve 
Vogel welcomed the audience. 
The opening number was a 
solo by Brenda LaBar, fol- 
lowed by a flute solo by 
Wendy Ripley accompanied 
by Sondra Snider. 

Grand Prize winner, chosen 
by the audience, was Chris 
Hawkins for his performance 
of "Truly." Backing him were 
Reg Rice, Cedric Calswell, 
Johnathon Wurl, Pierre Bel- 
homme and Marty Mixon. 

First place was awarded to 
Mauri Land, Ronda Facundus, 
Bonnie Rodgers, Shari Conner 
and Connie Westcott for the 
medley, "Sentimental Jour- 
ney thru the 40's." 

"Forever I Love You," a 
song written by Kim Dear- 
dorff, and sung by Brent 

Byers, received second place. 
Kim played the piano, Marcy 
Lee the drums, and Bev and 
Sandra Wong and Linda Im 
accompanied on violins. 

Ken Bradley, Bruce and 
Terry Harnage, and Lance 
Martin took third prize with 
their walk thru musical history 
featuring Frank Sinatra, 
Johnny Cash, Willy Nelson 
and Kate Smith. 

Honorable mention went to 
Steve Grice with his guitar, 
harmonica and vocal per- 
formance of "Lost John." 

Other acts included Steve 
Fitzgerald's magic ace, and 
"For Your Eyes Only," by 
Julie Zacharias. Lisa Oilman 
and Monte Jenkins sang a 
duet, "You Make Me Smile 
Again." Rita Bata, Malinda 
McKee. Lisa Mann, and Patti 
Gentry pretended to sing "Do 
You Remember These?" 

Considering the display of 
talent and the crazy emcees, 
the evening proved enjoyable 
for all who attended.

In the twelve years as South-

Frank Knittel has touched the 
lives of more students than 
any other president in the 
history of this college. Over 70

actually received their 
diploma from his hand.

Student: Why today, why

God: I thought that it would 
be good if we could have some 
spiritual talks-talks about 
where you were heading with 
your life. 

Student: I feel silly— I am 
talking to myself. If someone 
came in the room, they would 
send for the men with the 
white coats. 

God: 1 really don't want to 
frighten you. I think that it is 
time that we had a heart to

were headed with your life.

You would, well, 1 mean, talk 

God: You are very important 
and I am concerned about 
where you are headed. You 
know that in recent days you 
have been, well might I say

Student: You might put it that 
way--if you were kind— if you 
were a bit more blunt you 
might say that 1 have blown it. 

God: Yes, well I was not going 
to be quite so blunt. 

Student: Have I lost out? It is 
so hard sometimes. You don't 
alwavs seem very real to me. 
Except now—you certainly 
seem real now-a bit too real. 

God: I am sorry. 
Student: Hey, I didn't mean 
to hurt you. It is just that, 
well, you have never seemed 
that real to my day to day 
activities. I didn't hurt you, 
did I?

by those I have made and

The Alps— a 
discovery in 

From Munich's Glockenspiel 
to Maria Gem's chapel spire, 
bells ring throughout Kodak's 
newest multimedia travel 
show, "The Alps-A Discovery 
in Pictures." 

"Probably one of the pret- 
tiest sounds you hear in the 
Alps is the sound of cow- 
bells," says the directing 
photographer of the all-new 
Kodak extravaganza. "These 
cows are always standing on 
the steep mountainsides look- 
ing like they're going to topple 
off at any moment. Around 
their necks, they've got dis- 
tinctive-sounding bells that 
help each herdsman keep 
track of his own animals. A lot 
of people like to hear the 
sound of the ocean, but, while 
we were in theAlps, we fell in 
love with the gentle tinkling of 
the cowbells." 

To record that sound and the 
charming customs that sur- 
round it, the photographers 
went to Appenzell, Switzer- 

land. There, they pictured the 
mountainside farms and vil- 
lage festivals centered around 
the cows and their bells. 

"To the people of the Alpine 
countries, an 'alp' is a higher 
pasture," explains the photo- 
grapher. "Each spring, thev 
herd their cows up into the 
Alps. Each fall, they celebrate 
their safe return. In the show, 
we follow the story all the way 
through from the making of 
the cowbells to the colorful 
festivities for which even the 
cows get dressed up." 

This typical Alpine tale joins 
sight-and-sound "discover- 
ies" from throughout the 
mountainous regions of Aus- 
tria, Germany, Italy, Switzer- 
land and Yugoslavia in Ko- 
dak's latest travel show. But, 
if any sound lingers in the gym 
after the presentation, it will 
most certainly be the sound of 
Alpine bells.

as true. Philip L. Griffin, chief 
probation officer of the 
Municipal Court of 

Minneapolis, says "Practi- 
cally 90 percent of the cases 
that come through the court, .

When I think about my friend 
Dan, a young man who, to all 
outward appearances, would 
fit in perfectly on our campus, 
but who is incarcerated be- 
cause he killed a man while 
intoxicated, or when I think of 
Pat, who lost a parent because 
of drink, or Jed who has spent 

many more years in than out 
of institutions, partly due to 
drinking, or of Campbell, who 
had the ability to be a 1st rate 
boxer, and was well on his 
way, but got mixed up in 
drink, (and the list could go on 
and on!), I can see plainly that 
drinking leads to no good end. 
It can drag the best of us 
down. No one gets involved in 
drinking thinking "I recognize 
I'm going to move from Main 
Street to Skid Row and lose 
most of what's important to 
me, maybe even my freedom, 
or my life, and I gladly accept 
that as a good trade," rather, 
we all believe that we can 

handle and control ourselvS 
with it. The statistics are *«

Kelly Pettijohn 

Having played golf for more 
than six years 1 can un- 
doubtedly say that one of the 
most important factors is not 
only shooting a good round of 
golf but also more importantly 
to thoroughly enjoy your game 
is to have a good short game. 

A short game consists of any 
club selection from an eight 
iron thru a sand wedge. Of 
course if you are hitting any of 
these clubs you should be to 
within 130-140 yards of the 
green, and usually when you 
are this close you are trying to 
put the ball as close to the pin 
as possible. First of all, you 
need to make the proper club 
selection, without hits you've 
already been beaten. If you 
are 130 yards away and cannot 
decide between a hard nine or 
an easy eight, always go with 
the easy eight, this way you 
don't have to swing as hard 
and you have more control on 
the ball. Now, aligning your- 
self up for that shot. First of 
all, body and shoulders should 
be squared and lined up 
directly at the target with the 
ball in the middle of your 
stance and your legs a little 
closer together than normal as 
if you were hitting a low ' 




clubface directly at the target. 
Secondly, keep your head 
down on the ball and watch it 
leave the club, this way you 
can train yourself to not pick 
your head up. Thirdly, CON- 
CENTRATE!!! This probably 
determines the success of 
each golf shot. There is no 
physical definition for this, 
this now is all discipline. 

After you have gone through 
these steps and have hit your 
golf shot you should have 
done either one of these three 
things-left it short of the 
green on the fringe, left is 
short into a sand trap, or you 
successfully hit the green. If 
you did the first, I would 

choke down the club, put the 
ball in the back of your stance 
and punch it towards the hole. 
This takes the place of a lofted 
wedge. If you did the second, 
remember these basic 

a half to two inches behind the 
ball and explode out of the 
trap while keeping your body 
weight shifted to the left. If 
you did the last, your ready to 
putt and the first thing to do is 
to read the green to check for 
any break in your putt. Next 
bring the putter straight back 
and straight through never 
breaking your wrist and al- 
ways keeping the body and 
especially your head steady 
during the entire putting 

The short game is what wins 
the money for the pro's and 
could help Pettyjohn beat me 
occasionally if he had one. It 
probably takes the most prac- 
tice but will eventually pay off 
in the long run. If you don't 
believe me, read any article by 
or about Tom Watson.

Approximately 500 students 
from various academies and 
high schools in the Southern, 
Columbia, and Lake Unions 
came to SC for the annual 
College Days festivities last 

The activities planned -in- 
cluded campus tours, CLEP 
and ACT tests, a Continental 
breakfast, departmental meet-

reception where the visiting 
students were introduced to 
next year's SA officers. 

At the evening reception, 12

Senate ends 

The last senate meeting of 
the year was typical of most 
senate meetings but had a 
different ending than usual. 
Besides the regular agenda 
items and the usual com- 
ments, senate was given a 
special look at the annual AIA 
convention that was held 
March 31-April 4. 

Joe Robertson, Peggy 
Brandenburg, Maureen May- 
den, J.T. Shim, Glenn 
McElroy and Alvin Franklin 
were all given opportunities to 
speak about the meetings and 
give their opinions concerning 
the value of AIA. Peggy 
Brandenburg, incoming Social 
Activities Director, felt that 
the ideas shared with other 
schools would be helpful in the 
coming year. "I really appre- 
ciated the film list that each 
school gave out. I think it will 
be helpful next year when I 
! work with the film committee 
deciding what to show next 

Joseph Robertson, outgoing 
SA Vice-President and J.T. 
Shim, incoming SA Vice-Pres- 
: idem both agreed that the 
meetings were helpful to 
I them, even though Joe said 
J that he wished he had known 
before this year began.

I Southern Accent editor, stated

President, expressed his 
appreciation for the leadership 
that Alvin Franklin showed 
throughout the convention. 
Alvin Franklin, outgoing SA 
President, felt that the 
delegation from SC was very 
organized and commended 
them for their conduct 
throughout the convention. 
Mr. Robert Merchant second- 
ed the appreciation for the 
behavior of the delegates, and 
Elder K.R. Davis spoke about 
the upgrading of the meetings 
that made this year's conven- 
tion a more profitable time for 
the various officers repre- 

Maureen Mayden then gave 
a short presentation concern- 
ing the new typesetting 
machine that the SA is con- 
sidering buying for the South- 
ern Accent. Questions from 
the senators included, 
"Where will the money come 
from?" and "Will it really 
help the paper?" 

Mayden told the Senators, 
"The SA does have some 
funds set aside for this sort of 
purpose and what is needed 
above that will be funded 
through Senate Project 

"The new machine will 
indeed save time and money," 
Mayden assured the senators. 
"If we had our typesetting 
done at the College Press, it 
will cost about $6,200 a year. 
This is for the same service 
that now costs us approxi- 
mately $2,000/year now. It 
will also save time and hope- 
fully get the paper staff to bed 
at a decent hour next year."

Church officials disciplined 

The Georgia-Cumberland 
Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists has released the 
names of four former and 
present employees who will be 
disciplined concerning the 
Davenport affair. 

In a three-page special report 
to members of the Georgia- 
Cumberland Conference dated 
April 5, the Conference 
Executive Committee and As- 
sociation Board outlined the 
involvement of conference 
personnel with the Davenport 
loans, revealed planned disci- 
pline and cleared several con- 
ference officials who had been 
under investigation. 

Desmond Cummings, Sr., 
President, and chairman of 
the Georgia-Cumberland Con- 
ference Committee and the 
Georgia Conference Associa- 
tion Board from June 1964 to 
July 1980, received the strong- 
est discipline and criticism. 
The Study Commission stated 
that Cummings received a 
higher rate of interest on some 
of his investments with 
Davenport than the con- 
ference was receiving and that 
Cummings was in partnership 
with Davenport on some busi- 
ness transactions. 

It was also found that Cum- 
mings received finder's fees 
on money loaned to Davenport 
by various entities such as the 
Florida Conference Associa- 
tion. From 1976-1980, Cum- 
mings received over 5250,000 

in money and assets from 

The report also revealed that 
the Georgia Conference As- 
sociation advanced $600,000 
for the construction of a 
Southwestern Bell Telephone 
Company building in Temple, 
Texas for which the Deed of 
Trust was never received. 
After construction was com- 
pleted, Cummings purchased 
the building from Davenport 
and received a clear title for 
the property. 

The Conference Executive 

Committee voted that Des- 

ld Cummings, Sr. should 

not be eligible for employment 
by any unit of the SDA 
church; that he should not 
function as an SDA minister; 
that he should possibly receive 
additional church discipline 
and that the association pur- 
sue any and all sources of 
remedy available to recover 
losses sustained as a result of 
the Davenport bankruptcy. 
Jack Price, who served as a 
board member of the Georgia 
Conference Association from 
June 1966 to May 1981. was 
cited for possible conflict of 
interest. Price apparently re-

Gymnasts present homeshow 

The Physical Education Cen- 
ter was packed on Saturday 
night, April 9, as the Southern 
College Gymnastic Team gave 
its home show for students, 
friends and families. 

A variety of apparatus was 
used as members of the team 
performed their routines in- 
cluding Darla Jarret on the 
beam and Tammy Wittenburg 
on the uneven parallel bars. 

Several doubles and group 
routines were exhibited in- 
cluding a new triples routine 
by Myron Mixon, Beth Hadley 
and Charlie Byrd and the chair 
routine by Richie Moore and 
Mike Colfum. 

Highlights of the evening 
began with a floor routine by 

Jeff Osborn and continued 
with a colorful ribbon routine 
by Diana Johnson and Sandra 
Bedwell. Other features were 
a baton routine by Julie 
McClarty, a doubles routine 
by Debra Drafts and Charlie 
Byrd and a favorite of last 
year. The Southern Gents. 

Dr. Jerry McGill, program 
emcee, gave personal insights 
as he introduced team mem- 
bers. McGill then called up 
Coach Phil Garver and sang an 
original song in dedication for 
his years of service. 
The final touch was added 
when the team threw roses to 
the audience at the end of the 

2/SOUTHERN COLLEGE/April 14. 1983 

*A I A - - worth 
the cost 

Is AIA really worth the cost? Does it really benefit the 
students? I say yes. 1 gained a lot of ideas and information 
through the meetings that will be helpful in running the 
Southern Accent next year. I am glad I went. 

It was interesting to note that several papers had the same 
problems and to discuss various reasons and suggestions for 
solving those problems. I enjoyed getting to know the other 
editors and talking with them concerning the content and 
views of their papers; I felt like the convention was well 
worth the money, and not just because I could go. 

I think that if every student could go it would be beneficial to 
them to actually find out what other schools are like. Perhaps 
a lot of the prejudices that exist would be broken down and 
more interaction would occur between schools. 

It is really a shame that so many preconceived ideas are 
made about other Adventist colleges falsely. Some students 
at the convention told us that they had heard some rumors 
about SC that were totally untrue, but nobody bothered to 
find out for sure before talking. And some things that I had 
heard about some other colleges proved to be wrong also. 

I think that the interaction and the discussion that goes on at 
each AIA convention is important and well worth the time, 
effort, and money that the colleges put forth. 

If Southern College gets a chance to host the convention 
anytime in the near future, I think it would be an excellent 
chance for the students to find out first-hand exactly what the 
meetings are about. But the best way is to run for an office 

nd go yourself!

the March 17, 1983, issue of 
your newspaper Southern 
Accent, and I am quite 

In the editorial you made 
reference to a Columbia Union 
College ad that ran in 
academy newspapers of the 
Columbia Union. You seemed 
displeased with the ad in 
general and especially with 
certain statements. Also, you 
stated that those statements 
are misleading, and you impli- 
cated that they are erroneous. 

As a student at CUC I must 
inform you of the facts. First 
of all, everything mentioned in 
the ad is true. Of course, I can 
back up that statement. 

Of all Seventh-day Adventist 
colleges," CUC does have a 
monopoly on jobs that 
provide practical experience 
due to its proximity to Wash- 
ington, D.C. Most of the 
federal agencies are located in 
Washington, and the Office of 
Personnel Management runs a 
very effective "Stay-in- 
School" program which pro- 
vides students with part-time 
jobs in the federal agencies. 
Also, CUC possesses an 
excellent Cooperative Educa- 
tion department and Job Re- 
ferral Office that has been 
very successful in helping 
interested students find jobs- 
not to mention the many 
private corporations whose 
offices are located in our area 
and provide additional jobs for 

CUC students. 

You claimed that "... there 
is a whole spectrum of jobs 
available for students at 
Southern College" and you 
went on to give examples of 
the locations of those jobs (off 
campus). However, according 
to your employment office, 
approximately 12.06% (about 
200) of your students work off 
campus. Of those, 80 work at 
one place: McKee's. (Ah, the 
Cookie Factory?) In contrast, 
53% (875 students) work on 
campus. Evidently the other 
35% are not employed or did 
not report employment. At 
CUC only 31% (230 students) 
work on campus, while about 
64% are employed off cam- 
pus, with about 5% not report- 
ing employment. 

Your student finance office 
reports tuition for a 15 hour or 
less class load as $167 per 
credit hour and decreasing to 
$148 for 16 hours and above. 
At CUC, tuition runs at $159 
p;r credit hour for 15 hours or 
less and $149 per hour for 16 
hours and above. Therefore, 
CUC is $8 cheaper for a 
student taking 15 hours and 
only SI more per hour than SC 
for 16 hours and above! How 
could you say that Southern 
College costs hundreds of 
dollars less than CUC? 

Apparently you have never 
visited CUC. If you have, you 
must have noticed that the 
campus is not located near the 
areas of D.C. notorious for 
their high crime rate. And, 

Washington does not have an 
unusually high crime rate for a 
city of its size and population. 
Decaying city? Again, I find it 
hard to believe that you have 
visited the Washington metro- 
politan area. 
You really should have givea 
CUC more credit and realized 
that we would not print incor- 
rect information in our ads. 
And research before you

Dear Editor, 

1 am writing this letter con- 
cerning last Wednesday's 
"Spring Fling." 

Like many other students 
here at S.C. I enjoy letting 
loose every once in a while for 
a change of pace, and having a 
chance to be creative. "Spring 
Fling" is just the thing for 
that. So, I enthusiastically got 
all dressed up Wednesday, 
only to be stopped at DanieU's 
Hall by Dean Christman who 
proceded to tell me to "go 
take that off right now! We're 
not trying to promote that 
punk stuff!" 

If I remember correctly the 
Campus Chatter advertised 
"Spring Fling" by saying, 
"This is a day when almost 
anything goes." It also went 
on to include the phrase 
"punk out." Also, there were 
various signs around campus 
telling everyone to ' 'punk 

I might add that both the 
advertisement in the Chatter 
and the posted signs had to be 
approved by the administra- 
tion before they were printed 
or posted. 

I think maybe in the future, 
faculty members should make 
sure that they are aware of 
events going on around cam- 
pus before they start singling 
out certain persons and en- 
forcing their own personal 

is our God. We have waited 
for him." They will be a 
people who take their Lord 
and their religion seriously, a 
people who would give their 
lives to further the message 
which they will have fought so 
long to further. Their creative 
energies will have been totally 
focused on uplifting the name 
and character of their Lord 
and Saviour. 

The April 1 issue of the 
Tennussee Twang clearly re- 
vealed the creative ability and 
hard work invested by the 
writers and editorial staff. The 
article about Southern College 
winning twenty-five million 
from a law suit with CUC, the 
classifieds, and the newsbriefs 
were good examples of crea- 
tive writing. I think that this 
paper shows a real potential 
for the future. 

However, I think that it 
would not be fair to pass by 
the negative and subtly dan- 
gerous attitudes manifest in a 
good share of the articles. 
Without offense to the au- 
thors, the section of the paper 
entitled the "Adventist Ar- 
cade" seemed to be anti- 
religious. The names of well 
meaning churches were ridi- 
culed. How often have we felt 
the pangs of propagandas 
joking? Naturally, we resent 
other churches calling us a 
cult or any other negative 
name; therefore, it seems only 
fair that we treat the religious 
community with the same 
respect that we have so long 
asked for. 

I know people from a 
diversity of religions who have 
come in contact with our 
school publications. One such 

Sincerely, person

Editor's Note—The. following 
letter refers to the April 
Fool's issue of the Southern 
Accent, the Tennussee 
Twang. The issue, which con- 
tained humorous stories, 
articles, and classifieds, was 
circulated only to dorm stu- 
dents on this campus. 

Dear Editor, 

Recently in my study of the 
Bible, I've come to the con- 
clusion that we are truly living 
in earth's last days of history. 
The scriptures emphatically 
reveal the character of those 
people who will say, "Lo, this 

Tennessee Temple Baptist 
College. He felt like he found 
Christianity on that campus. 
Unfortunately, he did not 
think too highly of Southern, 
College. This person was not 
the only person I know who 
has come in contact with our 
campus publications. Many 
students, both Christian and 
non-Christian, work at 
McKees and come to and fro 
on this campus. These people 
are constantly watching us, 
seeing whether or not we are 
serious about what we preach. 
Perhaps even more danger- 
ous than the effect upon the 
community is the effect that is 
subliminally exerted upon 

ourselves. It is a law of our 
being that by dwelling upon 
and giving attention to our 
religious doubts and preju- 
dices, we are in fact lowering 
our defense against Satan's 
attacks. If ever there was a 
time that we should speak 
highly of our church and 
respectively of others, it is 
now. The church has too long 
been the subject of criticism 
and cheap jokes. The stakes 
involved are high. Eternity is 
at stake. 

In the final assessment, I 
would like to appeal to the 
principles at stake. Are we, 
the future intellectual and 
spiritual leaders of the church, 
succumbing to the ways of the 
cynic and the sacrilegious 
agnostics? The trends seem 
too painfully clear! God's 
name, character, and people 
are joked and ridiculed in a 
way that causes heaven to 
weep. Shall we, the last 
ambassadors of hope to a 
dying world, lift up the cross, 
or shall we instead take God's 
name and lower it in the dust? 
All heaven was poured out so 
that the character of God 
might be clearly revealed rfo a 
perishing world. Satan has too 
many footholds in the world- 
are we to grant him another? I 
appeal to the writers of future 
issues of our school paper to 
hold high the standards of 
Christianity. I hope and pray 
that future issues will be 
screened by a thoughtful, 
conscientous committee. I 
think that the Tennussee 
Twang has potential. In the 
future, I would like to see 
more of it.

God's work, His Sabbath, and 
His mission for us to do on this 
earth is far beyond the true 
Christian's mind and intelli- 
gence. The people who wrote 
these games have expressed 
their relationship with Jesus 
Christ as a nothing relation- 
ship. I'm sure Jesus must be 
crying at the ill humor, but I'm 
sure Satan is laughing. After 
all weren't they meant to be 

Let us, as a Christian school, 
keep our level of Christianity 
and not stoop to the level of 
this world.

Dear Editor, 

As a newcomer to Southern 
College, I very much appre- 
ciated the Tennussee twang, 
the April Fool's Day paper 
produced by the Southern 
Accent staff. I found the 
satirical views such as the 
"vegetarian" video game sec- 
tion and the article on the 
"KGB agent" especially en- 
joyable. It's nice to know that 
everyone, students and fac- 
culty, can laugh together at a 

It is good to get away from 
the dreary, everyday contro- 
versial news that we read 
every week in the Southern 
Accent. This is not to say that 
the Accent is unnecessarily 
boring; it does its job of 
reporting the facts very well. 
But so many controversial and 
negative things are happening 
that it tends to be discourag- 
ing reading. I found the 
Tennussee Twang to be very 
effective in taking my mind off 
the regular daily routine. 

The Twang provided a bright 
spot in the week. It was pure 
entertainment, relaxing, and 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to express my 
displeasure with the recent 
fennuessee Twang. Even 
though the paper was written 
as an April Fool's joke, some 
of the subjects to pick as jokes 
were very low-class to say the 

The Adventist Arcade is an 
example, with the games,

that low and make a joke of 

Dear Editor, 

We are writing in reference 
to the "Valley Bible" ad in the 
Tennussee Twang {April 1, 
1983). We could comment on 
various parts of the paper 
which seemed to be very 
questionable for a Christian 
school, yet due to space, we 
will stick to "The Valley 
Bible" feature. 

As we know, the Bible for 
centuries has been referred to 
as the "sacred Scriptures," 
for they are indeed sacred. 
The Bible is unlike any other 
book ever written, because in 
it God speaks to us. Therefoje 
Christians have not made light 
of this "Sacred Book." Nor do 
we feel it justifiable then, that 
the Tennussee Twang (even in 
fun), should be able to do so. 

It not so much upsets us. but 
rather makes us sad to see 
how Christian writers would 
stoop so low as to "in fun" 
take pot shots at God's holy 

If this is the type of attitude 
that these writers have in 
that these writers have in- 
tended to represent the posi- 
tion of the S.C. student body, 
in regards to the Bible, then 
perhaps we as Christians 
ought to re-examine our 
values and our relationships 
with Jesus. 

We ask, would Jesus Christ 
in His holiness rejoice over 
such an article?

Dear Editor, 

Concerning the Tennussee 
Twang, 1 have heard a lot of 
negative flack, and I do realize 
that it dealt with some pretty 
touchy subjects (obviously). 
But I seem to recall the fact 
that it was the Twang, and it 
was put out on April 1st which 
happens to be April Fool's 
Day. Usually on this day when 
anything said, written or done 
is questionable one tries to 
kind of look over it at least if 
one has any sense of humor. 

I'll admit parts of the paper 
kind of turned me off, but I 
just skimmed over those parts, 
soon forgetting them, as I 
thought the good out-weighed 
the bad. I'm just glad the 
school and it's paper has 
enough spunk to create and 
print an entire issue that's 
crazy. I mean most of the stuff 
was so obviously far from 
reality, one almost had to

Pastor Gordon Bit 


The Collegedale SDA church 
that many of you attend from 
week to week has voted to 
undertake a Sanctuary Beauti- 
fication Project that will mean 
a transformation of the interi- 
or of the church with stained 
glass windows, wood panel- 
ing, carpeting, etc. The 
project cost will be about 
$310,000. Some might ques- 
tion the advisability of spend- 
ing that much money on such 
a project. To those with such 
concerns might I offer the 

When we think of language 
we most often think of the 
words that we use, in our case 
English. But language is any 
means of communication. 
Language is much more then 
the sounds we make with our 
vocal chords. There is much 
language that speaks to us 
that does not necessarily 
vibrate the air next to our ear 
drums. When I am riding with 
a stranger in a car I feel a need 
to fill the air with words. I feel 
the need to communicate by 

using words. When I ride in 
the car with a close friend the 
silence created by the lack of 
words is not an embarrass- 
ment for communication- 
language is more than words. 
Symbols communicate a 
.great deal to us. Our lives 
would be rather barren with- 
out them. Of course spoken 
words are also symbols, sym- 
bols in sound, but I am 
thinking of the silent symbols 
of a handshake, a hug, a 
smile, a wave, or a rose given 
for a memory. Symbols 
dominate our lives more than 
we realize. We stop at red 
lights because they symbolize 
something that we have 
agreed on together, so that we 
can live together without run- 
ning into each other. We pass 
around pieces of green paper 
that have symbolic value be- 
cause we have agreed to have 
them represent a specific 
value. Those who study body 
language say that they can tell 
what we are thinking about a 
situation or a person by the 

way we hold our arms, and 
move our bodies. 

Fortunately for us our 
communication with each 
other is not simply the cold 
evaluation of words that pass 
between us on sound waves or 
paper. Life is colored with 
many deep and varied mean- 
ings because of symbols that 
communicate more than words 
are able to communicate. The 
pictures of our lives are paint- 
ed with many varied hues. 
Many, if not most, of these 
hues we derive from silent 
communication between us. 

Our life with God is 
dependent on His communi- 
cation to us through the words 
written in the Bible, but 
knowing our nature He left us 
more than the language of 
words. He left us the lan- 
guage of symbols as well, the 
bread, the wine, the sanctu- 
ary, the foot washing, the 
rainbow, the blood, the beasts 
of Daniel, the cross, and the 
Lamb, all symbolizing a reality 
deeper than what 

would appear on the surface. 
These symbols communicate 
a deeper reality in the same 
way that the symbol of a rose 
given for a birthday communi- 
cates in a language that is 
deeper than what appears on 
the surface. 

Our homes speak to us and to 
those who visit us in symbols. 
They tell others about who we 
are and what our priorities 
are. The home that we have 
prepared for worship of God 
also speaks a language to us. 
The way we maintain our 
church home, the interest we 
have in its beauty, the 
commitment we have to our 
sanctury of worship speak of 
the significance of our 
relationship to God. 

Everything about our church 
speaks a language. The doors, 
the colors that greet us, the 
height of the ceiling, the color 
of the carpet, the windows, 
the grounds around the 
church, the texture of the 
walls, the placement of the 
pulpit, the open Bible on the 

European study tour planned 

Southern College students 
will again have the opportu- 
nity to earn credit while 
traveling in Europe during the 
summer of 1984. The study 
tour "Adventures in Europe 
1984" will depart from Atlanta 
on May 23 and return on July 
8. Highlights of the itinerary 
include twelve days in En- 
gland, twelve days in Italy, 
and ten days in West Ger- 
many. London, York, Amster- 

dam, Paris, Florence, Rome 
Venice, Vienna, and Munich 
are among the most notable of 
the more than forty cities and 
towns in which the tour will 
stop. The tour will also travel 
through the spectacular Al- 
pine country of Switzerland. 
The tour is especially de- 
signed for college students, 
but will also welcome any 
interested non-students. A to- 
tal of six semester hours of 

credit may be earned on the 
tour. These credits may be in 
either history or humanities. 
The charge for tuition is 
included in the basic price of 
the tour. 
According to Bill Wohlers, 
Professor of History and tour 
director, the purpose of the 
tour is to enable students to 
receive a more vivid apprecia- 
tion of western culture than is 
possible in a classroom. Stu-

Fred Minner, assistant secre- 
tary and treasurer of the 
Georgia Conference Associa- 
tion from December 1975 to 
the present, was cleared of 
any personal involvement with 
Davenport. But because he 
did not fully execute his 
fiduciary responsibility, it was 
requested that the conference 
administration arrange for a 
change in his service to the 

church and bring in a new 
association treasurer. 

E. E. Cumbo, who served on 
the Georgia Conference As- 
sociation Board and the Geor- 
gia-Cumberland Conference 
Executive Committee, ap- 
parently invested personal 
funds with Davenport during 
his term of service in the 
Georgia-Cumberland Con- 
ference. It was voted that any 
information concerning the in- 
volvement of Elder Cumbo be 
passed on to the General Con- 
ference Davenport Study 

In the investigation of other 
church officials, the Con- 
ference Executive Committee 
and Association Board voted 
no disciplinary action against 

Richard Center, Hoyt Hender- 
shot and Don Aalborg. 


dents will be able to observe 
firsthand those aspects of 
European life which in this 
country are available only in 
books. In addition students 
will become aquainted with 
the people of Europe by 
traveling with them on the 
train. Each tour member will 
have his own Eurailpass which 
will allow unlimited rail travel 
throughout the continent 
during the period of the tour. 
This is a unique aspect of the 

table, the flowers, 
the printing style and color of 
the bulletin all speak a lan- 
guage to us about our love for 
and relationship with God. 

When a child is learning to 
speak he has very limited 
vocabulary. This shortage of 
symbols limits his understand- 
ing of life and his ability to 
experience all that life has to 
offer. When a church chooses 
to limit its vocabulary of 
worship meanings, it limits its 
experience of worship. Our 
church has chosen to expand 
its vocabulary of worship 
through a new organ and the 
Sanctuary Beautifi cation Pro- 
ject. This expanding language 
of worship is for the purpose 
of deepening our experience 
of God and expressing our 
adoration and praise to Him. 
As a church family let us 
always reach to experience our 
Lord in ever deepening ways. 
Let us use and develop our 
language so as to express even 
more gloriously our love for 
our creator.
