'hen I was in the fourth 

e, my father signed ir 

Ko play in the Little League in 

r small New England town. 

lad never played organized 

[baseball before and as a little 

1-year old, I was terrified. 

The season began with me 

Iplaying left field and batting 

The coach made sure 

■that I never got up at a crucial 

Ipoint in the game. So, if we 

leeded a hit when I was up he 

Iwould pull me out for a pinch 

Ihitter. I didn't mind too much 

;e I knew I wasn't a 

I good hitter, but my father 
would get a little upset, claim- 
ing that if 1 never batted in 
crucial situations I could never 
learn to be a clutch hitter. 
This went on all season until 
the playoffs. 

We were playing for the 
championship and if we lost 
this game we would be 
through for the year. It was a 
close game right down to the 
last inning. The other team 
was ahead by one run, but we 
had the bases loaded with two 
outs. Guess who was up to 

bat? The coach looked up and 
down the bench but could find 
no one eligible to pinch hit for 
me. It was all up to me. 

I stepped up to the plate 
hesitantly as my team- 
mates cheered me on. 
Just one look at my father in 
the stands filled me with all 
the confidence I needed. With 
a scowl on my face, I waved 
the bat at the pitcher, just 
waiting to jump on his first 

I swung, and missed the first 
pitch. I must have looked 

pretty foolish beca 
one on the bench ; 

in the 

stands groaned like the game 
had already been lost. 

A swing and a miss on the 
next pitch brought the count to 
no balls and two strikes. The 
pitcher gave me a cold, hard 
stare from the mound and 
then fired a fastball right over 
the plate. I swung with all my 
strength, and missed. 

The other team danced 
around the field and threw 
their hats in the air as I stood 
at the plate alone. Just then a 

strong hand gripped my shoul- 
der and my dad said, "Jer, 

cone." He didn't say any- 
thing more. He didn't have 
to. i know that my father 
loved my no matter how 1 
played. My father taught my 
what love is all about. 

And I know that no matter 
how I do in my school work, 
social activities, or a Little 
League baseball game, that 
their is someone here on earth 
and especially in heaven who

jdent sign up for one or more of 

■ the over 30 programs sponsor- 
\j^ t'y Campus Ministries. 

' year, however, the sign-

■ personal handling of the sign- 

up and also an increased 
number of participants, accord 
ing to Les Matthewson, direct- 
or of Campus Ministries this 

"I believe we have a program 
for everyone," stated Mat- 
thewson. "If there isn't a 
program already on the books.

Christians on this campus 
involved in some form of 

Sabbath afternoon, a sacred 
concert will be presented by 
"*Mike & Sharon, Larry &

will conclude with a free 
"all-you-can-eat" pancake 
breakfast Sunday morning 
from 9:00 through 11:00, 
sponsored by the Southern 
Union and cooked by the 
Youth Directors. 

Elder Herman promises that 
his will be a "powerful week- 
edn with more than just 
preaching." According to 
Herman, all are invited and 
encouraged to attend and to 
mit themselves more fully 
to Christ during the coming 
school year. 



Saturday night's first activity 
for the new school year wa; 
the Student Association Wei'

P.E. Center. As the crowd 
entered the gym, each person 
given a ticket with ; 
valuable number which coult 

in a free door prize. 

Emceed by the S.A. Presi 
dent, Glenn McElroy, and 
S.A. Treasurer Terry Shaw, 
the party began with door 
prizes given to several people 
who held the right numbers 

hich Shaw called out at 

Door prizes consisted of 
T-shirts, dinner for two 
bums, flashlights, six packs of 
soft drinks, and other valuable 
gifts. The movie entitled 
"Friendly Persuasion", star^ 
ring Gary Cooper, was fea- 
tured and another added di- 
mension was the "get ac-

When asked about the party, 
eggy Brandenburg, S.A. Ac- 
vities Director said, "The 
party was a success. The door 
prizes seemed to enthuse ev- 
! eryone about winning, and the 
movie was great." Branden- 
burg also stated that several 
other special events have been 
planned by the Student Asso- 
ciation for the coming year 
that the students can look 
forward t o^ 

Computer System 
Benefits Students 

Last July, Southern College 
installed a Sigi Computer 
System in the Teaching Learn- 
ing Center. 

To help the student, the Sigi 
System evaluates the import- 
ance of certain factors such as 
high income, leisure, prestige, 
or independence. After this, it 
gives possible occupations to 
fill these values. Also, the 
training, earning possibilities, 
locations, and descriptions for 
the different occupations are 

The Sigi System can answer 

up to 50 questions concerning 

specific profession, and 

ppTies information on the 

preparation for a career. 

It looks like its going to be a 

iluable tool for the Freshmen 

as well as the other students in 

finding a career." stated 

Evonne Crook, secretary in 

the Testing & Counseling 


The Sigi System is available 
Monday through Thursday

Time Out 

by Olck E 

The 1983 intramural Softball 
season began this week with a 
full schedule of games in all 
four leagues. Unfortunately, 
the scores and highlights of 
those games were not avail- 
able at press time, but will be 
included in next week's issue. 

The intramureal program is 
under the direction of Steve 
Jaecks who reported a com- 
bined total of 311 players in 
the four leagues. Jaecks was 
particularly pleased to report 
that 93 of those players are 
women, setting a record for 
the number of participants in 
that sport, or for any women's 
sport since Jaecks took over in 
1980. 1 would like to take this 
opportunity to congratulate 
our women athletes for their 
pariticpation. and will be look- 
ing forward to seeing them in 
action in the coming weel ~. 

Coach Jaecks is lookiht, for 
umpires and scorers to help 
out with the intramural pro- 
gram. Those who are interest- 
ed should contact hims at 
238-2855 or 396-3672. 

Here's an opportunity for our 

of Atlanta Braves tickest to a 
game on Sunday, September 
18, when the Braves meet the 
San Diego Padres. Just cut 
out this section, and match the 
names of the players with 
their nickname. The largest 
number of correct answers is 
the winner. All ties will be 
broken by a drawing.

pay $1.00 extra. 

This is the first time the 
Ensemble has been to SC.

them for the beginning of the 
Artist Adventure Series for 
this year. 

Blood Assurance Wants You b,j,rr,K„.a,»M 

On September 13 and 14, 
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the 
students of Southern College 
will be able to- participate in 
Blood Assurance here on cam- 

Blood Assurance is a 
volunteer blood donor pro- 
gram in the City of Chatta- 
nooga. Established in 1972, 
this is the only supplier of 
blood for the twelve area 
hospitals. According to Jerry 
Wilson, director of Blood As- 
surance. "Our only source of 
blood is from the volunteers at 

SC and those donors that come 
to our main office and to 
Erianger Hospital." 

There are benefits for those 
who participate in Blood As- 
surance: First, if 25'/i of the 
St lent body donate, the 
w„jle student body will be 
covered for blood, platelets, 
etc. for the school year. 
Second, if the student donor is 
claimed by the parents as a 
dependent, the immediate 
family is covered for a year as 
The procedure for donating 

blood is a simple five-: 
process. A person just pre- 
registers, answers twenty-five 
health related questions, gets 
a mini-checkup, has his hemo- 
globin checked, and then 
gives the one pint of blood. 
The actual giving of blood only 
takes five to seven minutes. 

Campus Ministries, who : 
promoting Blood Assurance, 
urges every student on the 
campus to take some time for 
their busy schedules to donate 
some blood for the benefit and 
care of others. 

September 8. 1983, SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

Southern Cynic 

Teachers frequently com- 
uiaine about the number of 
events that constantly inter- 
rupt instruction in their 
schools. Chapels, music trips. 
Student Association functions, 
and other activities seem 
regularly to remove one or 
more students from every 
classroom. As a result, 
college professors must often 
revise, postpone, or repeat 
lectures, quizzes, and tests. 

Southern College has, how- 
ever, come up with a plant to 
eliminate daily interruptions. 
This plan, known as The 
Friday Plan, was the brain- 
storm of the administration. 

Explaining the plan, one 
official stated, "We have tak- 
en all the typical events that 
interrupt instruction and 
scheduled them for Fridays. 
Under The Friday Plan, teach- 
ers carry out regular instruc- 
tion on Mondays through 
Thursdays. Fridays are re- 
served for all the other activi- 
ties that would normally inter- 
rupt classes. Since no lectures 
are scheduled for Fridays and 
there are no interruptions on 
the other days, no lesson plans 
ever have to be altered in any 

To illustrate how the plan 
operates, school officials pro- 
vided the following schedule 
for a typical Friday at SCSDA, 

A new Tennessee Senate bill 
will require five minutes of 
prayer per day. Under TA. 
Friday Plan, that translates to 
25 minutes every Friday. Thi 
entire student body will meet 
in the church for this event. 
Participation will be volun 
tary. However, this will coun 
as five (5) worship credits. 

8:35-9:20: Advisor/Advisee 

During this time, teachers 
will meet with the students 
small groups to "rap". It 
anticipated that the students 
and faculty will rid themselves 
of much hostility during these 
sessions by sharing their real 
thoughts about each other, 

9:30-10:20: Chapels 

Various chapel programs 
have been organized for the 
morality of the student body 
Because chapel is now only 
once a week, the administra- 
tions expect attendance to be 
100%, even of faculty. Three 
(3) worship points will be 
10:30-10:40: Financial Affairs 

This ten minute interval will 

be the only time the Business 
Offices will be open all week. 
Students can, at this time, pay 
school bills, cash checks, or 
speak with the Business 
Manager about overdue 

10:50-11:00: Lost and Found 

Students who have misplaced 
their umbrellas may search 
the campus at this time. All 
items found will not be con- 
sidered lost. Finders-keepers 
rules are strictly observed. 

11:10-11:00: Study Period 

Because the dorms wished to 
discontinue their study hall 
practice, SCSDA initiated 
time for this on Fridays 
However, this is not restricted 
to Freshmen. All students ai 
required to attend. Held i 
various buildings on campu: 
this study period can be used 
for turning in late assign 
ments. However, if the home^ 
work is still unfinished, the 
students may use this time 
dream up crea 

12:00-1:00: Lunch 

Leftovers are to be served 
every Friday so that the cooks 
get a day off. Because thi 
entire student body eats at thi 
same time, this practice will 

avoid long lines, the students 
won't have to wait for the food 
to heat up. 

1:10-1:50: The Friday Car- 

Because of their increasing 
popularity, the Friday Car- 
toons have been given their 
time. Now lunch won't 
interfere with the films. The 
for this has also been 
extended. This is to insure a 
/ariety of cartoon 
characters each week. At the 
end, a vote is taken, and the 
favorite cartoon is shown 
backward. Attendance here 
counts as 2 worship credits. 

2:00-2:30: Club Program 

Various clubs on campu; 
call meetings at this time to 
make sure that nothing el: 
conflicts with member attend- 
ance. Non-members will be 
able to attend informative 
seminars such as "Pac-M, 
Power: You can beat it!" 
"How to watch TV." ai 
"Dorm Deliverance: The Easy 
Way Out." 

2:45-3:30: Clean-Up 

Every student will be 
responsible for cleaning 
his/her own dorm room. This 
is required. No maids will be 

allowed. However, the sooner 
s accomplished, the 
students are allowed to 
go to town. 

According to SC admini- 
strators. The Friday Plan is 
kvorking quite well at Southern 
College. Although teachers 
still plan lessons four 
days per week, no plans are 
needed for Fridays, and no 
plans ever have to be 
changed. One veteran pro- 
fessor commented, "Nobody 
It to class on Fridays 
anyway. Why not blow the 
hole day?" 

"Students at SCSDA should 
prove to be learning just as 
i in the past, because 
there will be no interruptions 
to instruction. In addition, 
attendance should improve on 
Fridays. One student stated, 
"Fridays aren't so dull any- 
more. Besideds, I can get all 
my worship credits for the 
week on that one day!" 

The Friday Plan can be 
ipted to fit the needs of 

almost any school that has an 

interruption problem, accord- 
ig to school officials. In order

Teacher Wins $2,000 Reward 

Dr. Duane Houck, a Natural 

Science teacher at Southern 

College, and Loren 

Rieseberg, a former student 

I have recently had an article 

published in the American 

Journal of Botany. 

The article was based on 

e research they had been 

I doing in their free time on 

I Salisb, a plant otherwise 

I known as the "life 

] plant." The Salisb's leaves 

I have notches along the edge 

1 these notches are 

I embryo buds. When the leaf 

i broken off from the stock, 

the buds will sprout another 

plant. "When I saw this 

j|iappening in our green- 

, I became curious as to 

why. So I decided to fmd 
out," comments Dr. Houck. 
Dr. Houck and Rieseberg 
cut the edges off of some 
leaves and placed them in 
petri dishes containing var- 
ing amounts of cytokinin, 
auxin, an acid, then a lAA 
oxidase was added. They 
found that the cytokinin 
stimulated the growth of the

their growth. They also 
found that the lAA oxidase

"This research has just 
raised my questions," says 
Dr. Houck. "Our next step is 
to see if these chemicals are 

in the Salisb and how they 
are released." Dr. Houck 
has been awarded two 
thousand dollars from the 
Research Corporation to con- 
tinue this research. 

Dr. Houck explains the 
importance of his research. 
"This is just opening the 
door on the potential we have 
here. Oats form buds the 
same way as the Salisb and if 
it can be discovered how this 
is done in the plant, the 
results would be wonderful."

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/September 15, 1983 


One of my favorite things is to hear my father sing. 
Especially when he sings the 91st Psalm. You know the 
one. It starts out. "He that dwelleth in the secret place of 
the most High shall abide under the shadow of the 

I've always wondered what that secret place would be like. 
Would it have couches and comfortable chairs? How about 
soft rungs and fluffy throw pillows? Or would it be loud and 
crazy like a party? How about a game room with all the Ms. 
Pack Man and Burgertime 1 coul imagine? Would all my 
friends be there, or would it be a place for me alone? 

] think it is probably just about anywhere I make it as long 
as it is with the Lord, After all, "He is my refuge and my 
fortress: my God; in Him will I trust." 

Trusting God is not always easy, bu like the Living Bible 
says, "For He rescues you from every trap, and protects 
you from the fatal plague." That's what I need! Someone 
to rescue me from every trap. Some who can go with me to 
that secret place and soothe my wearied mind and body. 
Someone who will still love me even though I didn't finish 
that assignment. 

The other day 1 found my secret place again. It was quiet 
in my dorm room and I was lonely, looking for something to 
do while waiting for a friend. I only had about a half hour, 
so I really didn't wnat to study and then quit right away. 
Then I saw my lesson quarterly and suddenly remembered 
that it had been a while since I had opened it. As I took it 
down from the shelf, I silently prayed that I would get 
something meaningful from reading it. That's when I found 
my secret place. 

I found another one up here in the office. Typing editorials 
is a great start toward thinking of personal beliefs and 
values. I will always think of Psalm 91 when I am having 
trouble with classes or the old typesetter. And I will 
remember verse 4, "He shall cover thee with His feathers, 
and under his wings Shalt thou trust." 
Maybe I'll find another one next week. Have you found 

one lately? Keep looking. There's got to be one for you too. 

And the next time I go home, maybe I can get Daddy to 

sing it again. It always inspired mel

Dear Editor, 

Recently a fuse has been set 
off in me to express my 
opinion on some of the rules 
that we have here at South- 
ern College. I think that we 
all realize that lines have to 
be drawn somewhere, but in 
seeing where they are drawn 
sometimes makes one won- 
drawing them, 
pies are: 
it we put

show up for

The freedom we enjoy at 
Southern college is very 
limited, We all have much 
more freedom at home where 
we enjoy the trust of our 
parents instead of the 
scrutiny of certain faculty 
members who have that very 
unfortunate job of being our 
"parents" away from home. 
Part of the problem can be 
attributed to the fact that 
some of us just don't make 

wise decisions on our own 
and have to be helped out. 
You can look around campus 
and find quite a few who it 
seems just never learned or 
were never taught Christian 
values at home and have 
been shipped here to osmote 
good habits in four years or 
less. But, on the other hand 
there are quite a few mature 
Christian young people that 
do have and practice 
Christian values and living. 

As I see it, the entire 
problem revolves around 
Christian freedom. "It is for 
freedom that Christ has 
made us free." Stand firm, 
then, and do not let your- 
selves be burdened again by 
a yoke of slavery" (Gal. 5:1). 
If Christians are freed for 
freedom then why is it that I 
feel so unfree? Christianity, 
friends, is not a slightly 
updated version of Judaism 
and we are free! But, 
although the Christian life is 
free, it is a very difficult 
freedom to exercise. 
Frankly, what makes it hard 
is the cautious attitude 

GARFIELD " by Jim Davis 

toward freedom held by 
much of the Christian cc 
munity. Many believers 
have found, are experts 
defining what freedom is not. 

Freedom is not a licen 
Freedom is not giving a loose 
rein to the flesh. Freedom i 
not putting a stumbling block 
in your brother's way, etc. 
And of course these state- 
ments are true but they re 
also very inadequate. One 
could, I suppose, describe 
yachting as that process by 
which a sailor avoids the 
rocks. But in doing so 
skill with the sails, the thump 
of the hull, the exhilaration 
of the wind, the physics of 
the design are all lost. The 
joy of the thing is killed by a 
fear of potential shipwreck. 

Another factor that makes it 
difficult for freedom

and especially Adventists is 
the contradiction that exists 
between belief and practice

reject legalism as a doctrine 
but nevertheless earnestly

The Southern Accent I 

September 15, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

KefkcHon Writing 

One Sabbath afternoon, I 
was at home sitting in the 
living room, bored. My 
mother suggested that I go 
on a hike in the woods. The 
fresh air and vigorous activi- 
ty would help chase my 
boredom away. Throwing on 
a sweater, hiking boots, and 
^y ski jacket, I escaped up 
the nearest hill. While 
scrambling over bushes and 

around trees, I noticed a 
rugged old log rotting out in 
the middle of the trail just 
ahead. Tired and cold I sat 
down on the log for a brief 
rest. From there I could look 
down the hill and see many 
more logs like mine scattered 
between the trees. After a 
while, the log became very 
uncomfortable. I thought 
about my friends and people 

I admired. They remind me 
of wood, sanded and polish- 
ed to perfection, bringing 
people pleasure and warmth, 
not pain. Another long stare 
down the hillside brought on 
a realization I'd rather not 
acknowledge. Why was I 
such an old rugged, rotting 
log, uneven and causing 
others pain? After a few 

minutes of gloomy specula- 
tion, the answer hit me. 

While Jesus was here on 
earth He was a carpenter. 
He could take a rough, 
uneven piece of wood and 
make it into something of 
beauty and value. I jumped 
up oft my log and ran all the 
way down the hill. As 1 
neared my home I shouted 

inwardly, "Thank you, God, 
for the promise of Your 
craftmanship". As I reached 
the bottom of the hill, I 
slowed to a casual walk, 
remembering how the Car- 
penter met His death. 
Nailed to a tree that He 
Himself had created -- hang- 
ing there for hours in agony 
" so I could be polished. 


We are sorry foi

Speak-Up pictures last week.

(conllnued from page 2) 
expect legalism as a lifestyle 
from others. For all practical 
purposes they do not believe 
in salvation by faith in 
Christ's finished work alone. 
Really, test them. See their 
generous effort made at 
being open-minded when 
you mention that you have 
been to see Ghandi, or that a 
musical beat as such is not 
condemned anywhere in 
Scripture, or that your 
fiancee wears a two-piece 
bathing suit. The fact is that 
most Christians expect other 
Christians to live the way 
they want them to. 

Now, before someone 
concludes that I have sud- 
denly swerved into the fast 
lane, let me affirm that I 
accept law as demand with- 
out reservation. Moreover, 1 
do not believe that Christian 
freedom makes the heart its 
own norm. It is the law 
written on the heart and not 
the heart itself that informs 
the conscience. Christians 
are subject to law. No one 
can read the story of Jesus 
without seeing His reinter- 
pretation of the command- 
ments and His demands on 
his kingdom community {Mt. 
5-7). But Christianity is not 
Judiasm and Christians are 

A free Christian society 
insists that persons stand or 
fall before God alone. Paul 
turned the ears of fighting 
parties a smooth red by a 
rather blunt and embar- 
rassing question. "Who are 
you to judge someone else's 
servant?" he asks. Then he 
adds, "to his own master he 
stands or falls." And he will 
stand, for the Lord will make 

him stand. One of the 
easiest ways to get into 
trouble with others is to 
exercise authority where it is 
not one's right to do so. Try 
disciplining your neighbor's 
son, or write a check on a 
friend's bank account, or 
assign homework to a class 
you are not teaching and see 
what happens. According to 
the apostle, that is precisely 
what Christians do when 
they pass judgment on those 
with different standards of 
conduct. God alone is their 
Master and therefore He 
alone has the right to pass 
judgment on them. 

A free Christian society 
allows each person to make 
up his own mind. The book 
of Genesis shows us that God 
placed such an incredible 
premium on the freedom of 
the human mind that He was 
wilHng to risk the intro- 
duction of sin into our planet 
to have it. He would rather 
risk involving the Godhead in 
Calvary than not to have man 
free! What risks are we 
willing to take at Southern 
College to preserve the 
intellectual integrity of 
others? Are we willing to 
allow our children to reject 
any part or all of our religious 
tradition? Or would we 
rather deprive them of the 
right to choose? Are we 
willing to risk the kosher 
image of our Christian 
college by permitting the 
students to make their own 
decisions with regard to both 
their beliefs and lifestyles? 
Exactly how free would the 
universe be if you were God? 
A free Christian community 
protects its weaker members 


from the freedon 
stronger members. "Do not 
by your eating destroy your 
brother for whom Christ 
died" (Rom. 14:15). It is 
wrong for a man to eat 
anything that causes some- 
one else to stumble (14:21). 
Paul insists that freedom is 
not to be used to injure 
others, it must always be 
used constructively for the 
edification of the body of 

Here the apostle seems to 
make a complete turnabout. 
He seems to take away with 
the right hand the freedom 
he has just given with the 
left. May we not reasonably 
ask how any believer can be 
truly free if he is to spend his 
time trying not to offend his 
conservative brother? Do the 
standards of the most con- 
servative member in the 
community govern the 
behavior of the rest? Is 
freedom simply an endless 
capitulation to the whims of 
the fanatical far right? 

These fears evaporate 
immediately when we under- 
stand exactly whom Paul 
regards as the weaker 
brother. The apostle does 
not simply equate "weaker 
brother" with "conservative 
brother" as is commonly 
done. For him the weak 
brother is someone who will 
be destroyed, who will stum- 
ble, who will fall as a result 
of an insensitive exercise of 
freedom (14:15, 19-21). 
Mere conservatism is not the 
issue here. What is at stake 
is leading a weak brother to 
do what his conscience does 
not allow him to do, and thus 
into sin. What is at stake is 

4/SOUTHERN ACCENT/September 15. 1983 


Ducking under the canvas 
canopy and slipping through 
the door into the newly 
remodeled Campus Kitchen, 
the first thing a person 
notices is space. Empty 
space, and in great abun- 
dance. While the building is 
far from empty, there is no 
more tripping over tables 
and crawling over other peo- 
ple's laps to get to the 
serving line. Though only 
about half the C.K.'s former 
size has been added, the 
entire layout has changed, 
and now includes several 
comfortable boothes and a 
counter , which , promises 
campus Food Director Earl 
Evans, should have bar 
stools soon, along with a 
shipment of chairs for the 
regular tables and more 
benches for the outside area. 
The decor of the C.K. has 
also been redone. The 
almost dreary blues and 
greens were replaced by 
bolder reds and browns. 
Bright, colorful pictures a- 
dorn one wall while mirrored 
tiles showcase another. E- 
ven a new lighted sign has 
been ordered for the outside. 

September IS, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/5 


But looks are not the only 
change in the Campus Kitch- 
en. The entire menu has 
been overhauled, and several 
slower moving items were 
deleted, according to Mr. 
Evans, as were the hot 
vegetable plates formerly 
served at lunch time. To take 
their place, other items have 
been added, including a sa- 

category called the specialty 
sandwich, which will feature 
various types of sandwiches 
on a weekly or monthly basis. 
Overall, what Mr. Evans is 
trying to accomplish is better 
food and better service for 
the students. "Many people 
have complained that the 
food is too greasy," he 
explained. "Well, we're 
working on that." Indeed, 
with the purchase of a second 
microwave and the installa- 
tion of timing devices on the 
deep fryers, many foods 
formally known for their 
greasiness have been turned 
out all but grease-free. 
"Some foods will always 
have to be cooked on the grill 
or on the deep fryer," says 
Mr. Evans. "But the micro- 
wave can cook up a grease- 

less Sizzleburger in ten se- 

Also in the works is a new 
system of ordering, in which 
the customer will simply fill 
out a menu/order form and 
present it to the cashier. 
Numbers will then be called 
over a P. A. system and the 
customer can pick up his 

Looking at the menu, a 
person unfortunately notices 
the higher prices. The 
natural assumption is that 
the price change is to pay for 
the remodelling, but Mr. 
Evans insists that this is not 
the case. "If you'll look 
back, you'll see we haven't 
raised prices in over a year." 
The price changes, he went 
on to explain, were the 
result of rising food costs. 

But even with the slightly 
higher prices, the Campus 
Kitchen is still a pleasant 
place to meet with friends for 

more so now with the new 
interior. And with the other 
new developments on the 
way, the C.K. is rapidly 
reaching the standard of it's 
motto, "America's #1 Vege- 
tarian Snack Shop." 

New Fine Arts Building 

Located on the north end of 
the campus, the Fine Arts 
Complex is the newest addi- 
tion to Southern College. 
The Complex includes two 
buildings: The J. Mabel 
Wood Hall, and the Humani- 
ties and Business Center. 

Construction of J. Mabel 
Wood Hall was begun in the 
fall of 1979, and was com- 
pleted two years later. The 
building houses the Music 
Department, and includes 
offices, a concert hall, and 
practice room for choral, 
orchestral, and band groups. 

as well as numerous small 
rooms for individual practice, 
whether it be vocal or key- 

Construction of the Human- 
ities and Business Center 
began in the fall of 1981. and 
is scheduled to be completed 
next summer. The Center 
will provide space for the 
English, History, Communi- 
cation, Modern Languages, 
Art, and Business & Office 
Administration Depart- 

ments as well as housing the 
new facilities for the radio 
station. WSMC. At this 
point, there are no plans to 

expand any of these depart- 
ments beyond these accomo- 
dations through the addition 
of either new faculty or 
course offerings. The Center 
(as it is presently referred to) 
will be given a name after 
construction is completed; 
however, no decision has 
been made at this time as to 
what the choices for that 
name will be. 

The total cost for the Fine 
Arts Complex is $3.8 million, 
and was raised by Southern 
College through a program 
entitled "Project 80 Capital 
Campaign". This fund-rais- 

ing drive involved the solici- 
tation of corporations, organ- 
izations, and individual con- 

The Humanities and Busi- 
ness Departments will be 
benefited by the improved 
facilities, and the more effi- 
cient system of heating and 
cooling. In addition, the 
Center will pull related disci- 
plines together, which will 
contribute to the consolida- 
tion and coherence of the

Time Out 

Cantrell's "Parade of 
Pitchers" issued 16 walks in 
dropping Sunday's game 
23 ■ 7 to Sentelle. Four 
different pitchers gave up 
seven walks in a 13-run fifth 
inning for the victors. Fred 
Roscher led his team with 
four runs batted in. including 
three on a MX shot in to the 
trees in the first. Rob Lonto 
had four hits, scored four 
runs, and had three runs 
batted in. Stan Hobbs 
played exceptionally, reach-, 
ing base five times and 
showing great hustle on the 
base paths. Reg Rice and 
Mark Marbleton each had 
two hits and two runs scored 
for Cantrell. 

Ted Chase had five RBI's 
with a three-run homer and a 
two-run look-a-like to sail 
Newmyer over Royce Earp's 
team 12 - 8. Mike Krall. 
showing a sweet stroke, had 
two triples and scored a run. 
Rod Hartle. Stafford Barzey. 
and Mike McClung each had 
three hits. Earp had three 
hits and two RBI's while 
Greg Culpepper added two 
hits including a three-run 
homer in the seventh off 
McClung to narrow the gap 
and end the scoring. 

Earp didn't get much 
sympathy from fiesty Terry 
Shaw's team. Shaw pitched 
a shut-out against Earp's 
re-vamped line-up for Earp's 

second game of the evening. 
Earp had only nine base- 
runners throughout the 
whole game. They might 
have had 10 if it weren't for 
John Grys' defensive play of 
a Steve Schmidt high- 
hopper. Grys led Shaw with 
four runs batted in. He also 
slashed three hits. Mike 
Clements added three hits of 
his own and scored two runs 
in the 8 - victory. 

In slow-pitch games of 
September 6, Newmyer 
rolled over Ebaugh. Cantrell 
edged Greve. Miranda came 
from behind to eventually 
crush Sentelle, despite four

Shaw bested Martin.

The 1983 Major League 
Baseball season is winding 
down, and it appears that 
three of the four divisions 
could be decided in the last 
week of the campaign. The 
American League's Chicago 
White Sox have already 
wrapped up their division 
title with three weeks to play. 

At press time, the Sox had 
opened a 16'/j game lead 
over the Kansas City Royals, 
and were preparing for their 
first post-season series since 
their 1959 World Series 

Who would have believed 

the South-Siders would be in 

the pennant race after their 

\ horrendous start? (They 

" were nine games behind 

Texas and in the West 

division's cellar in May.) 

Today, the White Sox are 

the hottest team in baseball, 
and anxiously await the re- 
sults of the East division 
pennant race. 

One has to marvel at the job 
Joe Altobelli has done with 
the Baltimore Orioles. The 
Birds have won despite key 
injuries to hurlers Jim 
Palmer and Mike Flanagan, 
and enjoy a five-game lead 
over the Detroit Tigers. 
Although the Orioles have 
been playing well, you can't 
ignore the Tigers, for Detroit 
has seven games with Balti- 
more, and will play 13 of its 
19 remaining games at 
home. The American League 
East just might be decided 
on the last day of the season. 

Whether you're an Atlanta 
Braves or a Los Angeles 
Dodgers fan. you've gotta 
love the National League's 

West division. After a slow 
start, the Dodgers have 
emerged as the front- 
runners, enjoying a three- 
game lead over the Braves. 
However, when you examine 
the two clubs' remaining 
schedules, the edge has to 
shift to the Braves in this 
respect, as the Dodgers will 
play 13 of their remaining 19 
games on the road, four of 
which are with Atlanta. The 

Braves, in comparison, will 
play 11 games at home, and 
eight on the road. 

The Houston Astros, though 
not mathematicaly out of the 
race, could realistically 
tighten things, as they face 
the Dodgers six more times. 
If the Atlanta Braves are 
going to win the West 
division crown, they will 
need some help from 

The National League East 
division is a "blanket toss"-- 
Montreal. Philadelphia, 

Pittsburgh, and St. Louis 
were separated by only a 
game and a half, setting the 
stage for one of the most 
exciting finishes ever. 

The Phillies have the edge 
when you compare the 
schedules, as they will play 
14 of their remaining 21 
games at home. But don't 
count anyone out of it, 'cause 
this division may not be 
decided until October 2 . . .

giving such offense to a 
member that he will leave 
Christ. The description of 
the weaker brother in 
Romans 14 simply does not 
fit the average conservative- 
thinking person who stands 
for principles though the 
heavens fall. Thus when 
Peter pleased the brethren 
from Jerusalem by refusing 
to eat with the Gentiles, Paul 
publicly took him on. His 

conservatism had betrayed 
the equality of all believers in 
the Kingdom of God. 

You cannot study Paul 
without being overwhelmed 
by his amazing flexibility. 
He makes no god of con- 
sistency of action. Some- 
times he would be strict and 
sometimes not. He makes no 
god of freedom. This is seen 
by his submission to Jewish 
purification rites at the time 

of his capture. Paul 
exchanged a 
a freedom neurosis. What 
mattered the most to him 
was bringing others under 
the reign of a loving Savior. 
The magnificent challenge of 
Christ, "Seek ye first the 
Kingdom of God and His 
righteousness," possessed 
Paul. Here was his top 
priority. And because he did 
there was added to him the 

freedom we all long for. 

The point of this letter is to 
shed some light on the 
freedom that is ours, as 
young people and as adults. 
This freedom not only be- 
longs to us but it belongs to 
our brother and this is some- 
times harder to accept 
as in "parental 

faculty" to student relation- 
ships. Let us vow to be more 
loving" and less suspicious of 
each other. We are free 

because God alone is our 
judge, not our dean or our 
friends. We are free because 
God has given us the right to 
think for ourselves. We are 
free because we serve Christ 
who makes men free. Let us 
stand fast in that great 
liberty arid live by principles 
not rules.

Reflection Writing 

Before you begin to read 
this selection, I suggest you 
grab your' brand new Adult 
Quarterly for this next 
quarter. Being less inter- 
ested in paintings than your 
normal college student, 1 
usually do not notice the 
front cover of any magazine 
or publication, much less the 
Adult Sabbath School Quar- 
terly- However, this new 
quarter's cover caught my 
eye immediately. As I 
studied it, a warm feeling 
coursed through my blood. 
A smile flooded my face as 
hope sprang inside like "Old 
Faithful." 1 realized that this 
picture was something more 
than a space-filler. It offered 
hope to every college student 



trayed that hope to which 
as Seventh-day Adventists 
long for-the day when God's 
people are delivered. 
As 1 surveyed the painting, 
the word picture Ellen White 
used in Great Controversy 
came to mind. I would like 
to look at what this painting 
says not only to Adventists 
world-wide, but also to stu- 
dents of Southern College in 
1983. Looking at the back- 
ground, we see the sky is 
deathly dark and storm 
clouds hurriedly roll in as 
though some great catas- 

trophe were hastening to 
commence. Broken limbs 
surround the people as 
though • a storm passed 
through, yet leaving them 
unharmed. The naked trees 
give the observer the impres- 
sion that all of nature is at a 
time of upheaval. The 
"men" in the background 
look as though they are 
possessed with one thought- 
the thought to kill. Two are 
holding guns, one a hunting 
knife, and the other sits like a 
lion ready for his prey, 
'however tough these men 
seem to be, they cannot 
overcome the band whose 
strength is God. What a 
contrast the company of 
people are in the foreground! 
On every face is a warm 
radiant smile. All gaze into 
the sky as they see their 
Deliverer coming! Heaven 
itself has opened up her door 
to give this small little band 
hope and encouragement. 
All three races are repre- 
sented. Caucasion, Negroid, 
and Oriental, indicating that 
all different tribes of the 
earth will be included in that 
remnant band. Both young 
and old, married and un- 
married, adults and children 
will make up that victorious 
company. The clothes they 
wear reveal the battle that 

has been waged over them. 
The oldest man's white shirt 
is now soil-stained, the 
standing father's shirt con- 
tains a taint of blood, the 
Negro's skirt is torn, .the 
Oriental's wrist is wrapped- 




fierceness of the battle. Yet, 
here are they who keep the 
commandments of God and 
have the testimony of Jesus. 
They have seen Christ and 
know He is the great Shep- 

What does this depiction 
offer to the four classes 
which exist in the world 
today? To those who are not 
Christians, it tells that a time 
is coming when there will be 
two classes--Christians and 
non-Christians. It suggests 
that when this time is pre- 
sent, those who are not 
Christians will be miserable 
and self-seeking, searching 
to kill those who serve God 
rather than man. They will 
flee when God's glory shines 
down in an unprecedented 
way, seeking to save their 
only treasured prize-them- 
selves. But they realize that 
a power greater than they 

To Christians it gives a 
solemn warning: WE CAN- 
FOREVER! Soon the fence 

will be worn and weather- 
beaten and eventuaHjf 
destroyed by the final storm. 
Those who sit on it long will 
find themselves comfortable 
and will fall with it. It 
reminds us that our Christian 
experience must be a mobile 
one. It must not be static. 
The only way to have this 
mobility is to follow Christ- 
to walk with Him daily! 
When we walk with Him, we 

: the 





gospel to all ends of the 
earth. We. like the apostles, 
are to bring to the world the 
event to which we are wit- 
nesses to--God's love. We 
are to present it not only to 
our friends, but also our 
enemies. Regardless of race, 
nationality, belief, or tongue, 
we are to present this eternal 
message to all. This does not 
require preaching or giving 
Bible studies, but living and 
walking according to the 
light that has been given

When flunking a history test 

torpedoes your GPA and 
tomorrow seems as though 
your end may come, when 
your friends let you down 
and that girl you thought for 
sure was "The right one" 
says "good-bye," don't give 
in! When there is no place to 
turn to, when your family 
divides and your heart seems 
to break in two, look upward! 
When your old vessel is 
tossed to and fro on the 
storms and your ship is 
ready to sink, call on the 
Captain. He will guide you 
through. Christ longs to 
place over you His seal of 
importance-the rainbow, 
which reminds you that you 
are someone special and that 
God is with you. You are His 
child, son of the Universal 
King who is ready to give you 
His inheritance. 

Make SC the place where 
God became first in your life.

would follow Him. we could

Southern Cynic 

September 22. 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

When I first transferred 
from a public university. I 
developed a total and abso- 
lute fear of "THE DEANS'*. 
Having spent three years in a 
dorm that was open 24 hours 
a day and whose only rule 
was: "Study in the library 
please", I didn't know if I 
- could cope with the dictator- 
ship of this non-profit organi- 
zation that maintained a 
leeion of spies trained in the 
lethal art of "FRIEND- 
least that's what 
I'd been told and I had no 
1 to doubt my friends. 
! So my phobia blossomed. 

I remember waking one 

j night from a particularly 

blood-curdling nightmare, 

the kind that always finds 

ling in slow motion 

ne ghastly monster 

I chases you in fast forward. I 

I had heard something and it 

I jolted me from the depths of 

[ REM sleep into a still, dark, 

skin-crawling silence. I knew 

til a 

THING was outside my door. 
My room was about as cozy 
as Tut's tomb and I realized I 
was alone. Where was my 
roommate? Where was 
pooh-bear? Where was 
Magnum P.I. when you 
needed him? 

Having never met or seen 
any of "THE DEANS 
concluded in my hysterica 
state that it must be THEM 
My imagination played bi 
fore my mind's eye a mi 
matinee of the ghouls coming 
for me (I had been thirty 
minutes late the night be- 
fore) and I'd heard what the 
sadistic punishment was for 
late minutes. I could see 
them slithering down the 
hallway in 3-D, Cinema- 
scope, and Technicolor com- 
plete with shrieks and howls 
in Dolby stereo. They scoped 
each room with their X-ray 
vision, listened for sounds of 
rock music with their keen 
bat-like hearing, and moni- 
tored their metal detectors 
closely for signs of 

sary jewelry. 

I cowered in my bed, certain 
that a fiend was lurking 
nearby. My scalp prickled as 
my hair stood on end. The 
faint metal sound of a key in 
the lock sent my heart into a 
round-off back handspring 
(with a full twist). The door 
slid silently open. A blast of 
hot, sulfur ridden air bellow- 
ed in. Outside, the hall was 
strangely eerie. My breath- 
ing stopped. My watch 
stopped. The cricket in my 
air conditioner stopped. 
Suddenly a pale yellow light 
pierced the room. A faint, 
barely audible voice squeak- 
ed "good-night". The door 
whispered shut. 

I got up and switched on the 
light. In the mirror my face 
was ashen. My hair was 
damp with perspiration. 1 
opened the door and peeked 
out. Down the hall I could 
see the RA quietly doing 
room check. I breathed a 
heavy sigh of relief and 
slapped myself for behaving 

In such a juvenile manner. It 
was then I realized that I had 
to do something about my 
crazy misconception of 
"THE DEANS". So I looked 
them up in the Joker, which 
is what I'd heard you were 
supposed to do if you wanted 
to make an instantaneous 
judgement of someone or 
have a good laugh. They 
beamed back at me with 
hearty grins and I told myself 
that they didn't look that 
menacing. In fact they 
looked quite personable, all 
round good naturedly like, 
and even cool. (Well, maybe 
not cool but nice.) 

Since then I've developed a 
lot of respect for "THE 
DEANS" and I've learned 
that if you will follow these 
simple guidelines you should 
not have any conflict with our 
"substitute mommys and 

1. Refrain if at all possible 
from conducting mud-\ 

ling championships In the 
Student Center lobby. 

2. Abstain at all times from 
the use of automatic weapon- 
ry in your dormitory room. 

3. Avoid the consumption 
of dangerous liquids such as 
lighter fluid, antl-freeze, or 
paint thinner. 

If you adhere to these points 
and you still seem to be 
having problems with'THE 
DEANS", then vou must be 
member to keep in mind that 
the deans are people too. 
They have their ups and 
downs, backwards and for- 
wards, good days and bad 
days. So give them a break. 
I've heard that they can be 
very forgiving.

Cafeteria Costs Rise 

Southsrn Missionary College 
ColIegsdaiG, Tsnaessee 37315 

The cost of living is felt by 
everyone, and students here 
at Southern College are no 
exception. The cafeteria has 
boosted its prices, starting at 
the beginning of this school 
vear. The increase affects 
most of the items served, and 
ranges from 2%-8%. As a 
result, the monthly food bill 
of each student has climbed 
by the same amount, de- 
pending, of course, on the 
eating habits of the individu- 
al. In addition to the higher 
prices for individual items, 
the monthly minimum 
charge has been raised to 
$70.00. The policy of the 

■minimum charge" is de- 
signed to ensure that the 
students will have more in- 
centive to eat at the cafete- 
ria, where it is easier to get a 
balanced meal. 

With the recent improve- 
ments at the Campus Kitch- 
en, it is easy to suspect that 
the cost of remodeling is 
another reason for the higher 
prices. However, this is 
evidently not the case, ac- 
cording to Earl Evans, Food 
Service Director. The in- 
crease is directly related to 

inflation and specifically, to 
the rising cost of food. Evans 
remarked that this is the first 
overall price hike in over a 
year, and up until now the 
cafeteria has been able to 
absorb most of the cost. 

Regardless of the price 
increases, the cafeteria 
charges here at SC are 
among the lowest of SDA 
colleges in the North Ameri- 
can Division. For instance, 
compare the cost of a serving 
of vegetarian scallops at five 
of these major institutions: 

# of scallops/cost 

4-5/$. 80 




There is another bright sid** 

to this story. The beginning 

wage rate for students em- ing abi 

ployed by Southern College of the college, 

has been increased from approximately a 12% in-

All students will be starting 

this pay scale, except When can the students

upon the distributor's prices,

Name Change Again? 

Reconsidering the recent 
name change as a possible 
"bad move," the Board of 
Trustees had decided to let 
the Name Change Com- 
mittee re-evaluate names 
and present them to the 
Board for further discussion. 
This was done at the last 
Board meeting held here on 
the college, campus. 

The Committee suggested 
that Daniells College be dis- 
cussed as the best possible 
name for what is now known 
as Southern College. The 
Board considered the pro- 
posal, but decided to table 
further voting until more 
study has been done, includ- 
ing review of questionaires 
soon to appear in The South- 
ern Accent and possibly, in 
The Southern Tidings, the 

official publication of the 
Southern Union. 

According to Elder Clay 
Farwell, Chairman of the 
Committee, this will be done 
relatively soon even though 
no time limit was set by the 
Board. "I'm sure we don't 
want to drag anything out, 
just trying to decide," stated 

At the time of the change 
last year, the Board had 
decided upon Southern 
College of Seventh-Day 
Adventists because It kept 
part of the old name, 
"Southern," and added the 
"Seventh-Day Adventist" to 
identic with the continuing 
religious affiliation of the 

However, this decision 
elicited much comment from 

the faculty, alumni, and 
administration, as well as 
parents and present stu- 
dents. Not only is the name 
very long, but it lacks 
significance. This is attri- 
buted to the fact that there 
are 18 other colleges with 
'southern' as part of their 
name, including a Southern 
College in Orlando, Florida 
which will conflict with the 
Orlando campus. 

In deciding to change the 
name again, the committee is 
hoping to base it's suggest- 
ion on the name of a signifi- 
cant personality in the 
history of the SDA church, 
therefore the name Daniells 
College as a suggestion for 
the Board. 

Elder Farwell and the 
Committee do not wish to 

push their personal prefer- 
ences into their discussions, 
and he feels that they have 
been very objective so far. 
"We are just a service 
committee to the Board. We 
try to be very objective in our 

When Farwell was asked if 
it would seem wishy-washy 
to change again after such a 
short time, he replied that it 
would be better to change 
now rather than wait and do 
it later. "If we're going to 
change it again, we need to 
do it now and get the new 
name out to the constituents 
as soon as possible. That's 
why we want to know what 
the students and their 
parents think of the choices. 
We have a strong desire for 

input so that we can know 
what will please the most 

Obviously, there is no way 
to please everybody, he went 
on, but Farwell hopes to get 
a name that will say some- 
thing positive about the 
college and let the students 
feel proud to have the name 
on their diploma. 

The best name for the 
college may not be the most 
popular, however, the Com- 
mittee will do it's best to be 
sincerely objective as they 
continue discussion son the 

Next week, watch for 
reasonings and arguments 
for and against each choice

Does the name need to be changed again? 1 mean, haven't 
we been through enough already with the last hassle over 
Southern College of Seventh-Day Adventists? If they 
wanted to change the name, why didn't they do it right the 
first time? 

These are just a few of the comments that not only express 
my personal thoughts, but also the feelings of other 
students and alumni concerned with SC or whatever they 
want to call it. 

Last year at the annual AlA convention, the delegates from 
this institution were teased by the other delegates about the 
indecisiveness shown afte:

will try to explore the possiblities of the names to choose 
from and why changing is important. 

Elder Clay Farwell, President of the Kentucky-Tennessee 
Conference, spoke with me concerning this issue and why 
there is still a need for a change. He also gave me some 
reasonable names that are being considered. 

Whether it be Southern Missionary, Southern, Daniells, 
Southern Adventist, or just College, we still stand for

has always held.

Dear Editor, 

1 would like to call attention 
to the importance of the 
award granted by the Re- 
search Corporation to Dr. 
Houck of the Biology Depart- 
ment. The Research Corpor- 
ation is a private foundation 
which obtains the majority of 
its funds from patent royal- 
ties. It is, I believe, the 
largest source of non-govern- 
ment funds for pure research 
in the United States today. 

As government funding for 
pure research has been cut 
back more and more, the 
competition for the govern- 
ment funds, and also for the 
non-government funds of the 
Research Corporation and of 
other foundations, has in- 
creased severely. One might 
even say that the competition 
for these funds is ferocious. 
The fact that Dr. Hauck has 
been granted the $2000 a- 
ward (which has been for 
many, many years the maxi- 

; available under 
the "small grants program") 
is a truly remarkable indica- 
tion of the quality of Dr. 
Houck's work and of the 
academic atmosphere at 
Southern College. The ad- 
ministration of the Natural 
Sciences Division, of the 
college, and of the Southern 
Union are altogether provid- 
ing the atmosphere which is 
such a necessary prerequi- 
site for this kind of research. 

Respectfull yours, 
Ray Hefferlin 

Dear Editor. 

1 just finished reading Mark 
Newmyer's letter on Chris- 
tian freedom for the third 
time. 1 hope every student 
and faculty member took the 
time to read it ihoughtfully 



n that let- 
of Chris- 
tianity and the freedom it 
brings. Southern College 
would be a better school if 
the principles outlined in 
Mark's letter were grasped. 

Thanks for printing a letter 
that made me stop and think. 

GARFIELD'^ by Jim Davis 

September 29, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

KeflecHon Writing 

Last Thursday afternoon, I 
was working underneath the 
car when Dad walked out of 
the house and over to me. 
The position of his feet told 
me he wanted to talk. 

"What's up, Dad?" I said, 
as I slid from under the car 
and grabbed a rag to wipe 
my hands with. "Son, 
tomorrow we will climb the 
mountain to offer a sacrifice 
unto the Lord." 

"Great," I said. "It's been 
a long time since we've been 
on the mountain together." 
Dad doesn't seem too excited 
about the sacrifice, I 
thought, as he walked back 
into the house. 

The next morning was 
beautiful. I awoke to the 
song of a blue jay petched on 

my windowsill. There wasn't 
a cloud in the sky and a warm 
gentle breeze filled the val- 

On our way up the 
mountain. Dad and I had a 
great time talking about 
sports, school, and the cur- 
rent economic condition, but 
Dad was acting very strange. 

Every now and then he 
would stop and say, "Son, 
stay here. I'll be right back. 
I must go into the woods to 
pray." Dad would come 
back about an hour later, 
quite exhausted, and with 
red eyes. 

"Dad, what is it? Is 
something wrong?" I asked 
in desperation. 

"It's nothing, son. Don't 
worry yourself with my pro- 


On Sunday, after a refresh- 
ing Sabbath of rest and 
worship, as Dad and I were 
nearing the spot that he had 
picked for the sacrifice, I 
said, "Dad. this weekend 
has to be one of the best 
we've ever spent together. 
Can we do it more often?" 
Just then Dad fell to the 
ground in tears. 

"Son, ..." 

"Yes, Dad. What is it?" I 
was feeling very uncomfort- 
able now. Something is 
really bothering Dad and he 
won't talk to me about it, I 

"Son, the Lord has told me 
that you . . .," Dad couldn't 
finish but 1 knew what he was 

"I'm the sacrifice?" I asked 
in disbelief. Dad just nodded 
his head. He couldn't speak. 
He's not getting me up 
there, I thought to myself. 
But just then Dad picked 
himself off the ground and 
walked toward me. Fear tore 
through my chest as I real- 
ized that Dad was really 
going to go through with 
this. Confident that he was 
doing the right thing. I 
stared into Dad's eyes and 
saw love and peace there. 
Dad had faith that this was 
what God wanted us to do, so 
1 put my arms around him 
and held him for one last 

As Dad bound me to the 
altar with his trembling 
hands, I thought, how will 

this affect Dad? He loves me 
so much and yet he is willing 
to offer me to the Lord. 

As Dad brought the knife 
down, I closed my eyes 
hoping that it would be fast 
and painless. But before the 
knife reached my chest, a 
mighty voice from heaven 
shook the ropes loose that 
bound me. 

"Abraham, don't touch the 
boy." I jumped off the altar 
and ran into my father's 

On our way home that 
afternoon a beautiful blue jay 
flew in circles above our 
heads. Dad and I no longer 
talked of sports, school, and

The Student Association is 
sponsoring a Jog-a-thon at 
11:00 a.m. on October 16. to 
raise money to purchase a 
new phototypesetter for The 
Southern Accent and multi- 
image equipment for Straw- 
berry Festival, and also to 
supplement the SA budget. 

The new phototypesetter 
will be replacing an old 
compugraphic Compuwriter 
Jr. Ms. Andrews, the spon- 
sor of The Southern Accent, 
says'That old machine is 
held together by nothing but 
rubber bands." Last year 
the SA had to pay a repair- 
man $85.00 an hour to come 
out and fix the compugraphic 
on three different occasions. 

"The last couple of years 
Strawberry Festival has had 
problems." says Glenn 
McElroy, SA President. "It 
is ridiculous for a crew to 

stay up twenty-four hours a 
day for a week and then have 
the program mess up. With 
the SA owning it's own 
equipment, we can start 
working on the program at 
the beginning of the year." 

To operate it's programs, 
the SA receives 1.2% of all 
full-time students' tuition, 
which is approximately fifty 
dollars per student. With the 
drop in enrollment of two 
hundred students, the SA 
budget has been cut by ten 
thousand dollars. Says 
McElroy. "We have the low- 
est budget per student of any 
SDA college in the U.S. But 
we also have one of the most 
active Student Associations. 
With the money we have left 
over from the phototypeset- 
ter and festival equipment, 
we hope to help lower the 
ticket prices for banquets. 

programs, etc." 

Prizes are going to be 
awarded to people who re- 
ceive pledges for certain 
amounts of money. They 
range from a color T.V. for 
twenty-five hundred dollars 
in pledges to a portable 
radio for one hundred to two 
hundred and forty-nine dol- 
lars. Prizes will also be 
awarded to the hall that 
receives the most total 

"Wisconsin Academy had a 
Jog-a-thon last year and 
raised ten thousand dollars 
with a student body of only 
two hundred," says 

McElroy. "Ail a person has 
to do is fill out the forms and 
get them in to the SA office 
by noon Friday, September 
30. and we'll mail them. 
Then he'll just have to run 
and win prizes."

The Student Association 
Senate held its first meeting 
of the 1983-84 school year 
last Monday, September 27. 
Present at the meeting were 
the SA officers and the 24 
new members of the senate. 
The agenda for the meeting 
included organizational pro-

coming year. 

The meeting was called to

Doug Walter, appointed by 
SA President Glenn McElroy 
to be^producer of this year's 
Strawberry Festival, gave a 
report on the progress of the 
program to date. Work has 
already started on the pro- 
gram, an annual highlight of 
the academic year, but there 
are to be several changes 

made this year. The slide 
presentation will spotlight 
seniors for the first time, and 
will include input from 
people representing a wide 
variety of backgrounds. 
Walter hopes to have 5000 
slides from which to choose 
in preparing the presenta- 
tion, and stated that 700 
pictures have already been 
taken, although less than 
1/lOof the $2500 budget has 
been used. In regards to the 
budget, Walter said that "no 
salaries will be paid until the

reported on the problems 
encountered in trying to 
publish this year's yoter. A 
computer tape, he explained, 
is used to transfer all the 
names and information from 
the computer to the printed 
form actually used in the 
Joker. This tape broke just 

before printing, delaying the 
process until a new tape 
could be made. 

Student Association Presi- 
dent McElroy spoke to the 
Senate about SA's purpose, 
and it's responsibility. 
McElroy also discussed the 
Jog-A-Thon and the study 
done concerning the School's 

Southern College President 
John Wagner addressed the 
Senate on the responsibilities 
of leadership. "Without

to catch Hartle sleeping, was 
a high pitch over the plate.

Wow! School's getting 
underway-what an adjust- 
ment! This year, however, 
I'm not having such a hard 
time adjusting to school be- 
cause my dear mother made 
some changes at our house 
over the summer to help ease 
the pain of transition from 
school to home. 




of the 

exam pit 
went through to make my 
jtay at home more like 

[First, I'll start with the 

,nges she's made in her 

king and mealtime prac- 

s. The first night home 

she cooked the vegetables all 

day long so I wouldn't go into 

vitamin shock! Of course, 

before I could get to my 

garbonzo loaf and yellow 

broccoli I had to wait In line 

fora half hour. {I don't know 

where she got all those 

people. I only remember 

having one brother). 

Wanting a salad with my 
dinner, I went to the newly 

installed island in our kitchen 
and found my mother eager 
to weigh my salad (she 
slipped her thumb on the 
scale) and then she charged 
me a reasonable .50 cents an 
ounce. What a mom! 

Of course, coming from 
such an upbeat college I felt 



after dinner (I love that soft 
serve stuff). I made my way 
through the crowd of stran- 
gers (I later found out that 
mom invited all the people I 
hadn't met yet, home from 
school for the summer) to the 
ice-cream machine. As I got 
there, mom handed the last 
styrofoam cup of baby-aspi- 
rin orange ice-cream to an 
over-weight co-ed. Disap- 
pointment flowed through 
me until I realized I could 
always settle for one of those 
gourd-sized mangoes with 
the kerosene flavor. 

After dinner, I went to my 
room to recuperate from the 
fun! As 1 was laying on my 
bed counting the holes in my 
new false ceiling, I heard a 

knock on my door. I ran to 
open it and found my old 
roommate standing in the 
hall with 5 suitcases and two 
refrigerator boxes in her 
possession. "Help me un- 
pack?" she asked, happy to 
see me after two whole days 
of separation. "Of course," 
I grinned, finally feeling in 
place with all the comforts of 
school. (Mom even had a 
small refrigerator in my room 
stocked with moldy bread, 
grapes turning to raisins, 
half a can of Pepsi-Free and 
some wilted lettuce.) 
My roommate and I finished 
unpacking, which is as tiring 
at home as at school (another 
little idea of mom's). Both of 
us felt very hungry so we 
decided to check out the old 
kitchen (maybe raid the re- 
frigerator). As we approach- 
ed the kitchen, there stood 
unknown person hollering 

cutlets and chocolate 
shakes." Remembering 

this. I suddenly felt better. 
I went up to the kitchen 
counter and placed my order 
with another unknown per- 
son who looked as if she 
might like to shoot me. 
"Can't you read?" she 
snarled. "We're out of 
pickles, bread, veal cutlets, 
ice-cream, french fries, to- 
matos, (she takes a deep 
breath) hot dogs, lettuce. 
and Reese's Cups. 

"Well, what do you have?" 
1 asked. 

"We have chili and about a 
tablespoon of mayo," she 
replied in a deep growl of 



I sighed. "Not the 'sleeze 

My roommate nudged me 
and said, "But you love veal 

"I'll take it." I said in relief. 
As 1 was about to sit down 
(outside), 1 heard a scream 
and saw a guy dressed in a 
white uniform running a- 
round with a spatula yelling, 
"Get that cockroach!" 
"Who's that?" I asked my 

"Oh. him." she said. 
"Well, he runs the grill

reputation for cockroach kil-

I finished my last bit of chili 
and mayo just as mom 
walked up to me and an- 
nounced, "Remember,

snatched a red bandana from

indicated its preference for 
a change. A return to the 
old name might please 
some but would also resur- 
rect all of the earlier objec- 

In addition, the name 
Southern College is notably 
lacking in significance. 
Probably the majority of 
those involved with the 
college were willing to ac- 
cept this name in the 
expectation that it would 
eventually become a posi- 
tive attribute of the school. 
Instead it has become in- 
creasingly evident that this 




distinctive as most people 
would desire. Reinforcing 
this conclusion is the fact 
that at least eighteen other 
colleges have "southern" 
as part of their name, 
including a Southern Col- 
lege in Orlando. This last 
point should be a compel- 
ling reason for reconsidera- 
tion. Time may iillow for 
the acceptance of the cur- 
rent name, but it is unlikely 
that it will ever be r 
as the best designs 

college could have chosen. 

During the past year this 
college has entered an im- 
portant period of transition. 
With all of the momentous 
challenges confronting the 
school it is not surprising to 
encounter a reluctance a- 
bout once again consider- 
ing a name change. Would 
it not, however, be more 
realistic to seize this mo- 
ment as an opportunity for 
innovation and present the 
best possible name for the 
college as it moves forward 
into the future? 

In doing this two criteria 
must be the basis for 
decision. First, the name 
should strenghten the col- 
lege's emphasis on its ori- 
ginal Seventh-Day Adven- 
tist foundations. Second, 
the name should accurately 
signify the position of the 
college as an accredited 
institution of higher learn- 
ing. No type of name 
satisfies these require- 
ments better than the name 
of significant personality 
in the history of the Se- 
venth-Day Adventist 

The recent report on this 
topic by Tony Romeo Ad- 
vertising supports this con- 
clusion. Writing about the 
hypothetical example of 
Richards College it asserts, 
This is a symbol of the 
type of name we believe is 
appropriate - the name of 
a recognizable Seventh- 

. The 


Day Adventist 

the only alternative \ 
is distinctive, meaningful 
to Seventh-Day Adventists 
and without negative or 
radical connotations to 
The value of this type of 
name is demonstrated by 
its successful use in such 
cases as Andrews Univer- 
sity and Brigham Young 
University. Such a name is 
short, easy to say, and 
memorable. Above all this 
type of name "provides a 
solution to the major pro- 
blems" encountered with 
almost any other type of 

A few might object to the 
Romeo report because of 
the limited sampling which 
its survey represents. But 
the precise value of what it 
suggests is found in its 
ability to rise above the 
fleeting evidence of opir 


: conclu- 

what is popular, is the key 

As the Romeo report 

carries with it the require- 
ment that the public be 
educated. The advantage 
of choosing the name of a 
prominent Adventist leader

Stealing? At Southern College? No. You can't be serious! 

But I am. It hannens and it keeps on happening. Your 
dorm room is not safe. Your car is not safe. Your laundry is 
not safe. Thieves can get in anywhere. They may have a 
key. a card, a knife, a hairpin, but they still get in. I'm 
afraid to leave my dorm room anymore. 

1 lock everything 1 can before 1 leave. And even then, when 
1 come back, something may be gone. A shirt, my change, 
my last dollar that's suppose to last until 1 get paid again, 
(at the end of the month!) Nothing is safe anymore. 

But just in case, I'd like to work on your conscious a little. 
How would you like il if you had a dollar left and someone 
came and took it? Probably, it is someone who needs that 
dollar less than 1 do. They may think that they don't have 
any money, but that's because they are probably out buying 
new clothes with the money that they stole from me. 

In Bible times, the children of Isreal were stoned by 
stealing. At Southern College, the students aren't. Most 
get away with it, and never get caught. 

That's too bad. Especially for those of us who keep getting 
ripped off.

Dear Editor, 

The children of the third 
world hold out their hands to 
you, asking for one tiny 
morsel of food. Food, the 
staff of life, the substance 
that cavemen fought for and 
the substance the pilgrims 
gave thanks for at Plymouth 
Rock. Even though the 
Russians bombed and killed 
nice, harmless people, we 
still give them grain. Food is 
so important that financial 
periodicals like The Wall 
Street Journal and Barron 's 

have a whole commodities 
section. Yes, food, some- 
thing we all need, something 
so important to the whole 
survival of mankind is now 
being played with by our 
very own administration. 
! admit that some people eat 
more than they should, espe- 
cially at potlucks and pickle 
barrel outings, but that is up 
to the diner as to how much 
he decides to eat. To say that 
I can't charge over $190. OU 
on my statement for food is 
like my mother telling me I 
can only have five sprays of 

Right Guard for the 
year. That does 
absurd, I know, but you)l 
can't tell someone who lol 
to eat and, on the averal 
eats about $200.00 to $250| 
a month that he 
limited to the amount of fl 
he can put on his statemel 
I suppose the big wheels! 
Wright Hall think that |"

then why not say 'C

that we'd probably have!

that it is a positive unifying

The program will feature modeled after the style made 

selections from each of five famous by the Boston Pops 

Orchestra, and gets its name 
from the popular style of 
music which will be featured. 
All of the groups will 
perform numbers with a 
"New York-feel," according 
to Dr. Robertson, and an 
extensive bit of staging will 
be done. The sets used for 
the performance have been 
constructed under the super- 
vision of Denise Read. 

Although there is no 
admission charge for stu- 
dents, refreshments will be 
sold at various intermissions. 

Popcorn, pretzels, and drinks 
will all be available for a I 
small fee. 

Overall, Dr. Robertson feels 
the program will have some- 
thing for everyone. While it 
is aimed primarily at the 
students, both community

. and 

Some Things Never Change 

When I first came to SMC in 
1957, all the academic build- 
ings and dormitories were on 
the hill while the farm build- 
ings (barns, silos, a dairy) 
plus the College Store, bar- 
ber shop, and a row of "little 
brown houses" were on the 
flat pasture land below. A 
road flanked by magnificent 
spruce trees (the sole survi- 
vor stands on the northeast 
corner on the new business 
and communications build- 
ing) passed between build- 
ings and the hill. And at the 
end of the road (just where 
Industrial Road begins) was 
a grand Victorian-style three- 
story building called the 
Yellow House. 

The College Store was a 
j delightfully controlled me- 
lange of groceries, drug store 
I items, hardware, electrical 
appliances, book store, and 
gift shop. To the left as you 
I entered there was a regular 
I old-fashioned soda-fountain 
I (stools and all) where you 
I could order such unhealthful 

■ but scrumptious goodies as 
I thick malteds, banana splits, 

sodas, and grilled 

■ cheese sandwiches that 
1 sometimes had two or three 

■ layers of cheese between the 
I slices of bread-Mrs. Heffer- 

mother ran the fountain 
I most successfully for several 

years. Speaking of Heffer- 
lins, there were several years 
in the late 50's and early 60's 
when Dr. Ray's eternal youth 
fooled many students who 
kept asking him if he was a 
new student here-possibly a 
Junior or Senior? 

The Academy was on the 
spot where Summerour Hall 
now stands. The "Big day" 
came when the bulldozers 
came and knocked down the 
wooden walls of the Aca- 
demy and later on old Talge 
Hall. It was an overwhelm- 
ing sight to see entire floors 
and walls come tumbling 
down-of course Engineering 
(then called buildings and 
Grounds) had salvaged the 
doors, window frames, and 
anyhthing else of value so 
there wasn't too much hold- 
ing the buildings up! Prior to 
that all the farm buildings, 
store, houses, and the rest 
were razed to make room for 
the "new" Talge Hall, 
Thatcher Hall, the Library, 
and the Nursing Bilding. 
Hackman Hall was only half 
as big as it Is now and not 
only that, Physics and Math 
(plus Biology and Chemistry) 
were all squeezed into that 
small space. Since a depart- 
ment consisted of only a 
couple of teachers (for sever- 
al years Biology was Dr. H. 

H, Kuhlman and E.O.G.), 
the offerings were limited 
and even though the enroll- 
ment was small (from 450 
and then gradually working 
up to 1000) the classes were 
large. There just weren't 
too many electives. I remem- 
ber the first embryology 
class that I taught had 40 in 
it--this year there are only 
10! The point is with all the 
crowding and limited offer- 
ings we teachers had the 
feeling that there were a lot 
of students here. We were 
teaching the descriptive, tax- 
onomic, structural type of 
Biology with lots of dissec- 
tions and field work with 
students collecting every- 
thing (leaves, flowers, fish, 
mammals, birds) and they 
were required to make ela- 
borate "exact" drawings. 
There's still some of that 
going on, but we hadn't yet 
"gotten into" the molecular, 
physiological, and behavioral 
aspects of today's biology. 
But, there was a lot of spirit 
and comraderie and excite- 
ment through it all. I 
remember Jim Tucker (he's 
president of the American 
Birding Association now) 
caught a skunk and he want- 
ed to deodorize it. His 
method was to soak the 
skunk in tomato juice-he 
filled a sink with 5-6 gallons 

of juice and left the skunk in 
it overnight. The next morn- 
ing the entire building was 
fragrant with the odor of 
"skunked" tomato juice and 
after Jim washed the juice off 
the skunk, it still smelled as 
bad as the day before. 

The cafeteria was in the 
basement of Jones Hall; the 
library was in Daniell's Hall 
and the Tabernacle-Auditor- 
ium {which everyone simply 
called "the Tab") was the 
gym, chapel, church, social 
hall, skating rink, and the 
place where all programs 
were staged (something like 
our P.E. Center has been 

Students were "into" 
staging elaborate plays and 
pageants and talent shows- 
lots of participation. Every 
Christmas the Student Asso- 
ciation put on a Christmas 
extravaganze with "authen- 
tice costumes" provided by a 
marvelous costume rental a- 
gency in Chattanooga called 
Eaves. In Sabbath School 
before Christmas there was 
always a pageant replete 
with dramatic "wise men" 
marching regally down the 
center aisle (Jim Herman 

course, the first semester 
didn't end until the third 
week in January so students 
weren't plagued with study- 

ing for finals at Christmas- 
time as they are now. 

Besides programs and 
pageants, we had picnics 
(all-day-no-school affairs) 
and pasture parties and 
hikes. Just about everyone 
went Ingathering. As mas- 
ter-minded and engineered 
by "big" Bill Taylor, bus- 
loads of students went to 
Atlanta. Knoxville. Gatlin- 
burg and all points in be- 
tween. The classes were all 
organized (Seniors. Juniors. 
Sophomores, Freshmen) 

with a full slate of officers 
and they all had banquets, 
parties, picnics, waffle sup- 
pers and inter-class contests. 
You had a rough time 
socially if you were "more 
than a sophomore, but not 
yet a Junior"-where did you 

And so it went in those 
olden, golden days when 
SMC was ever prospering, 
growing, building, and im- 
proving. Its name has been 
changed (and may be 
changed again) but thanks to 
the dedicated administra- 
tors, faculty members, and 
students of the past, we have 
the tremendous institution of 
today. Yesterday's memor- 
ies have paved the way for

When I first i 
SMC campus in 1956, the 
place was small-under 500 
students. A row of buildings 
strung along the hill 
from the Tabernacle to old 
Miller Hall. And it was a hot 
August-with air condition- 
ing unheard of. The setting 
al, barns being lo- 
cated where Thatcher Hall 
and the tennis courts are 
now. The main road went 
straight through the campus 
where the west wings of 
Talge and Thatcher Halls are 
now situated. 

The most impressive part of 
the campus was the grassy 
slope on the hill in front of 
the buildings. The four 
wooden buildings-Taber- 
nacle, old Talge, tynn Wood 
Hall, and Jones Hall, were 
separated by the three new 

brick buildings, Hackman, 
Daniells, and Miller Halls. 
Lynn Wood Hall included 
most of the classrooms, the 
Health Service, and the 
Home Economics Depart- 
ment, the Industrial Arts 
Department, as well as all 
the Arts and Letters areas. 
The church pastor's office 
was located there as were all 
other administratvie offices. 
It was the centef of activity. 
Only the Science and Music 
Departments were in sepa- 
rate buildings. 

As is still true today, the 
best part of the college was 
the students. They were 
hard-working and remained 
on campus-few had cars. 
Attendance at chapels, week- 
end meetings and Saturday 
night programs was nearly

The time has come to take 
a positive approach. It is 
time to choose a name 
which is the best possible 
name for this college, not 
because of a dislike for all 
or part of a previous name. 
In taking this action the 
board would have to con- 
sider the concerns of all 
constituients, but it should 
not base its final decision 
on either personal opinions 
or popular surveys. It 
should base its decision on 
principle and thus demon- 
strate a refreshing bold- 
ness in selecting that name 
which best represents the 
foundations upon which 
this school has been built. 
In doing this the board 
would confirm the progres- 
sive confidence which all 
who are connected with this 
institution need to demon- 
strate. By building firmly 
on its divinely inspired 
past, this college can pro- 
ceed fearlessly into the 
future. A new name, 
chosen from the rich heri- 
tage of Adventism, would 
provide an immediate 
source of inspiration for 
renewing the commitment 
to finish God's work. 

Specificallv, Daniells' in- 
fluence was crucial in four 
areas in the history of this 
church: organizational 

outreach, education of 
young people, and the cen- 
tral role of the Spirit of 

Daniells became President 
of the General Conference 
in 1901. Earlier that year 
Ellen White had called for a 
revamping of the church's 
organization in order to 
enhance its effectiveness. 
It was this which led to the 
of the present 
ion and union confer- 
structure. and Dan- 



responsible for implement- 
ing it. Acting upon the 
admonitions of Sister 
White and his own exper- 
ience as a leader in Austra- 
lia. Daniells reshaped the 
structure of the advent 
movement and helped 
make it the dynamic world 
church that it is today. 

Daniells was a man with 
boundless vision and his 
zeal in reordering the struc- 
ture of the church was not 
simply for administrative 

both in the United States 
and abroad he constantly 
worked for more effective 
missionary activity and for 
stronger financial support 
for it. His innovations 
included the creation of a 
foreign mission board and 
the encouragement of sys- 
tematic goals for mission 
giving. Daniells himself 
had entered foreign mis- 
sion service only twelve 
years after J.N. Andrews 
pioneered such endeavors, 
and as Robertson asserts, 
"If one passion above 
others held Daniells in its 
grasp, it was his love for 
foreigh missions." 

This commitment carried 
over in his concern for 
young people. He is fre- 
quently referred to as a 
"young people's man," 

could be cited to illustrate 
his concern for them. But 
his overriding obsession 
was the training of young 
people for service in the 
work of the church. He was 
instrumental in establish- 
ing Avondale College in 
Australia and continually 
pointed to it as a model that 
all SDA schools should 
follow in their primary pur- 
pose of training mission- 
aries for the church. He 
believed that every young 
church member should be 
in SDA schools and did 
everything he could to faci- 
litate this objective. His 
own words reveal his belief 
that "we must put forth 
tireless efforts on behalf of 
these young people." It 
was in this spirit that he led 
out in the formation of the 
original Missionary Volun- 
teer Society. 

Elder Daniells served this 
denomination for twenty- 
one years as General Con- 
ference President. During 
that period the church 
faced some of its most 
serious doctrinal chal- 
lenges including that of 
John Harvey Kellogg. The 
strength of Daniells' lead- 
dership was one of the 
major assets in the struggle 
of the church to combat 




enable the church to fulfill 
its mission of spreading the 
three angels' messages to 
all the world. As a leader 

When he surrendered his 
duties to W. A. Spicer in 
1922, Daniells did not cease 
his efforts to support the 
truth. First as Secretary of 
the General Conference 
then as Secretary of the 
new Ministerial Associa- 
tion he devoted the last 
thirteen years of his life to 
the defense of the Seventh- 
day Adventist faith. Two 
tangible results of these 
years continue to retain 
their timeless relevance. 
His book, Christ Our Right- 

eousness, draws upon the 
Spirit of Prophecy to 
emphasize the necessity of 
having a practical experi- 
mental relationship with 
Christ. And his book. The 
Abiding Gift of Prophecy. 
is still one of the most 
inspiring presentations 
regarding the gift God has 
given to this church. His 
words of advice to a fellow 
traveler reveal his purpose 
in these efforts. 

To name this college after 
A.G. Daniells would give it 
a name that is distinctive 
and unique as well as 
phonetically attractive. But 
more importantly, it would 
strengthen the stated com- 
mitment of this school to 
the foundations of this 
church. As Ellen White 
has advised, our assurance 
of remainging faithful in 
the present in directly re- 
lated to our awareness of 
God's leading in the past. 
The choice of the name 
Daniells College would 
prove infinitely valuable in 
encouraging just this kind 
of essential remembrance. 


1 . It is not sufficiently 
unique. It would give this 
schol excactly the same 
initials as the SDA college in 
Texas which only emphasizes 
the fact that this name lacks 

2. The term "Adventist" is 
only part of the name of this 
church. Few would counte- 
nance any implication that 
the "Seventh-day" part of 
our name is any less impor- 
tant than the "Adventist." 
The use of this shorthand 
version of our name as an 
official designation of this 
college gives the impression 
of superficially slick packag- 
ing rather than firm commit- 
ment to the depth of this 

such right exists with regard greatest number of people, 

to the term "Adventist" by V the course content of this 

itself. Any SDA off-shoot school were based on the 

group could use the term same kind of compromise, 

"Adventist" as part of their there would be little reason 

naj^g to keep the college open. 

3. There is immediate 
potential for confusion in the 
use of the term "Adventist." 
Seventh-day Adventists are 
not the only "Adventists" in 
the world. Furthermore 
while there is legal precedent 
for the church to retain sole 
possession of the name 
Seventh-day Adventist, no 








. |j!««C»,V» ^ 

1 -. 

4. There is fallacy in the 
belief that the term "Adven- 
tist ' ' would bring instant 
understanding. It is not 
difficult to establish from 
experience that the term 
"Adventist" does not man a 
great deal to the world in 
general. This is especially 
true when it stands by itself. 
Most of the world has only a 
hazy and often inaccurate 
notion of who Adventist are 
and what they believe. 

5. The name Southern 
Adventist College is imper- 
sonal. This name implies 
that the essence of this 
movement is its buildings, 
organization, and its dogma. 
Nothing could be further 
from the truth. The heart 
and soul of this movement is 
the people in it and their 
experiential relationship with 
God and each other. The 
organization and structure of 
this movement is a result of 
the likemindedness of the 
people who make it up. 

6. The name Southern 
Adventist College empha- 
sizes regional isolation. The 
Seventh-day Adventist 
church is a world-wide move- 
ment, and its members need 
to be encouraged to over- 
come their potential provin- 
cialism and see themselves 
as an important part of the 
entire movement. There is a 
special danger in using the 
term "Adventist" in con- 
nection with the term 
"Southern" in that we will 
be seen as similar in orienta- 
tion to the Southern Baptists. 

It literally implies frag- 
mentation of the church. 

7. The name Southern 
Adventist College is a com- 
promise. It does not require 
a great deal of immagination 
to come up with this name. 
As a compromise it is far 
from being the best name 
and thus is encourages 
mediocrity, something which 
should be avoided at all 
costs. Good names are 
usually chosen because of 
the perception of right-think- 
ing individuals not because 
3f a desire to please the 


8. The name may be 
acceptable but it will not 
grow in significance. It is 
significant that many schools 
which have inserted the 
name Adventist into their 
name are still referred most 
frequently by their old 
designations, e.g. Milo, 
Laurelwood. and the nega- 
tive approach that was taken. 
The primary motive was to 
eliminate the word 

Missionary. The name 

Southern Adventist College 
perpetuates this impression. 
It would have been far better 
to have selected a name 
because it was a clear 
improvement over the old 
one. That opportunity still 

1. It is clearly distinctive. It 
is not a name that is shared 
by other institutions. It has 
an appealing phonetic 
quality, and its unique spel- 
lings adds to its distinction. 
It is also succinct. 

2. /( effectively indicates the 
nature of this college. It is 
essential that the name of 
this college accurately por- 
trays it as a four-year 
accredited liberal arts 
college. It is also important 
to identify it with its parent 
organization. The use of the 
name Daniells College along 
with the mandated phrase "a 
Seventh-day Adventist 
liberal arts college" does this 
better than any other sug- 
gested name. 

3. It is a name which 
emphasizes the personat 
nature of this movement, it is 
not so much that this name 
honors A.G. Daniells, but 
that is sees in him a symbol 
of the real spirit of this 
movement. The term 
"Missionary" in the old 
name carried this per.-onal, 
people-to-people quality- 
What better way to continue 
this than to select the name

had a full season of players

Right before a crucial four- 
game home series with the 
White Sox, in which the 
Rangers were 8 games 
behind Chicago at the begin- 
ning of August, he uttered 
quite loudly that the White 
Sox had been "winning 
ugly." The Sox promptly 
took the first two in a 
double-header sweep. Then 
Texas traded Rick Honeycutt 
to L.A. right before he was to 
pitch against the Sox. 
Chicago won that one too, 
before Texas won the next 
game the following evening. 
"Well, at least that keeps us 
within ten," Rader said. The 
Rangers finished 22 games 
from the top. "Ask him if 
we're ugly now," said Sox 
Greg Luzinski. The quote by 
Rader was so off-beat that 
T-shirt companies in Chicago 
are making a fortune off the 
manager's mistake and poor 
Doug isn't getting a cent 

The top disappointment of 
1983? The talent-studded 
Montreal Expos, who else? 
Runner-up? The Atlanta 
Braves, for obvious reasons. 
Other disappointments? The 
rest of the American League 
Western Division. 

There were teams who had 
a good year, despite their 

circumstances, and still have 
to watch the playoffs via 
satellite. They are the 
Detroit Tigers, the New York 
Yankees, and the Pittsburgh 
Pirates. A team who wasn't 



successful, were the 

Minnesota Twins. Who 
would have thought that the 
Twins would have the exact 
record that the Angels pos- 
sessed early in the spring? 

There were individual stars 
this year, such as Bill Mad- 
lock, who won his fourth 
batting title with a .323 
average. Dale Murphy, the 
league's MVP a year ago, 
actually improved! .303 
average, 36 homers, 121 runs 
batted in! Awesome Andre 
Dawson, John Denny, Lee 
Smith, and Mario Soto each 
had fine years as veterans 
while Darrel Strawberry 
emerged as the top rookie in 
the National League. In the 
American League, Wade 
Hoggs won his first batting 
title hitting .361, while Eddie 
Murray hit .307 with 33 
homers and 111 RBI's. Jim 
Rice won the Home Run title 
with 39. He hit .305. Cal 
Ripken had good success in 
his second year in the majors 
hitting .318 with 27 homers 
and 101 runs batted in. 
Rickey Henderson swiped 
108 bases. The top pitchers? 
Scott McGreggor, Jack 
Morris, Richard Dotson, 
LaMarr Hoyt, and Dan 
Quisenberry were the top 
pitchers of 1983. The top 
rookie? As it stands now, its 
a tie between Mike 
Boddicker of Baltimore, a 
pitcher, and Ron Kittle of 

1983 marked the final year 
of Johnny Bench, a long-time 
Cincinnatti Red, and Carl 
Yastrzemski, a 23-year mem- 
ber of the Boston Red Sox. 
Through the years, Yaz and 
Bench electrified baseball. 
They were compliments to 
jame. Yaz hustle, clutch- 
hitting, and leadership: 
Bench's power, and ability 
behind the plate, typified 
what major league baseball 

all about.

The Fall Four-Man Scram- 
ble Golf Tournament was 
held at Fall Creek Falls on 
Sunday. October 1. 

The tournament consisted 
of four-man teams who all 
tee the ball off, decide which 
ball was hit the best, and 
then all four men hit from 
that spot. 

The players were divided 
into two sections according to 
ability. The above-average 
players went into the Champ- 
ionship Flight while the aver- 
age players went into the 
First Flight. 

Winning with a score of 12 
under par in the Champion- 
ship was Barry Manzella. 
Kelly Pettijohn, Bucky 
Knecht. and Mike McClung. 

Currently. McClung is the 
only student at Southern 
College. The winners in the 
First Flight were Bob Mills. 
Jerry Willis, Dick Mosley. 
and Lean Collbert with a 
score of 7 under par. None of 
these players are currently 
enrolled at Southern College 
as students. 

Competition was also held 
for the longest drive and the 
closest to the pin. The 
winners of the longest drive 
for the Championship Flight 
were Jim Douglas and Ted 
Evans, who is a Men's Dean. 
And the winners for the First 
Fight were Jeff Krall and 
Rob Lang. The closest to the 
pin shots were held on the 
third, nfth, twelfth, and six- 
teenth holes. The winners 
came from both Flights and 
were Robert Bolton. Bob 
Jenkins. Jerry Willis, and 
Richard Stepanske. 
The tournament was open to 
Southern College students, 
alumni, and Adventists in 
the surrounding area. Teams 
came from as far as Nashville 
and Atlanta to play in this 
year's tournament.

October 6. 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/U 

Southern Cynic 

A few Sabbaths ago, I was 
nodding in and out of con- 
sciousness while a returned 
student missionary plodded 
through eight trays of sHdes 
and droned on and on and on 
about his wonderful experi- 
ences in some far away land. 
I think he had visited Borneo, 
although what he presented 
was definitely BOREO! 

At the conclusion of his 
program, he flashed on the 
usual sunset-over-where-I- 
was slide and made the usual 
ending cliche, "And remem- 
ber folks, we don't have to go 
to a far-off country, and 
there's a great mission field 
right here in our own land. ' ' 

Immediately I visioned 
myself standing on a corner 
in Harlem, boldly preaching 
the gospel to the blood- 
thirsty Mau Mau's. Naw, I 
reasoned, too far away and 
besides, I don't even speak 
New York. 

Next I saw myself handing 
out tracts in Eastgate Mall. 
Probably would get arrested, 
1 mused. Let's see, there 
must be a mission field a 
little more accessible. 

Then it hit me! I would go 
as a missionary. Not to the 
South Seas. Not to New 
York. Not even Chatta- 
nooga. I would go as a 
missionary to B-Wing, Talge 


The very thought of what I 
was about to do sent chills 
over my already goose- 
bumped flesh. Yes, I would 
boldly go to a hall so steeped 
in ancient heathen prac- 
tices. A place where even 
some deans fear to tread. 
Willingly I would sacrifice of 
myself to possibly bring en- 
lightenment to the natives 

The next day, armed with a 
lighter, a few heathen tracts 
and a slang/EngUsh diction- 
ary, I bid farewell to my 
friends and made my way up 
the stairs to my mission field. 

As I approached B-Wing. 
my mind raced over the 
many ghastly tales I had 
heard about what goes on 
there . . . people's heads 
being flushed in toilqts . . . 
wild all-night parties . . 
.chanting for women . . . 
regular guys. I paused for a 
moment and forced these 
thoughts from my mind and 
tried to concentrate on what I 
was about to do. 

Each step 1 took reeked 
(literally) that I was nearing 
my place of work. At last I 
rounded a corner and there 
before me lay the ominous 
corridor of B-Wing. 

As I timidly entered the 
hall, the primitive beat of 

drums could be heard 
coming from several rooms. 
I bristled, knowing that to be 
a definite sign that I had 
picked the right place to 
bring about change. 

I began to slide the health 
tracts under the doors of hte 
rooms, wondering all the 
time if I would actually see a 
real live B-Wing native. 
Suddenly, a door opened 
behind me, and there not 
more than a yard away, stood 
one of them. 

He didn't look too primitive 
or dangerous, but I decided 
to play if safe anyway. 
Fumbling in my pocket, I 
produced the lighter and 
struck a flame. (I learned 
this trick in a missionary 
book. It's supposed to 
frighten natives into thinking 
I am a god of fire.) Holding 
the lighter in front of me, I 
said, "I am your friend." 

He appropriately looked 
surprised, even shocked. 
"You must be magic!" he 
exclaimed. "I've never seen 
one of those things work on 
the first try.',' 
"You speak English," I said 
feeling a little foolish and 
dowsing the flame. Ignoring 
my statement, he edged 
forward and sharply asked, 
"What do you want. any- 

Thinking it was time for the 
wrath bit, I extended my 
hand and said, "Brother, I 
love you. and I want to show 
you a better way of life." 

"I'm not into that kinky 
stuff," he muttered backing 
into his room and shutting 
the door. I could overhear 
him talking to someone about 
a weirdo out in the hall. Not 
wishing to push the issue. I 
opted to merely slide a tract 
under his door. 

I worked my way down the 
hall, sliding tracts under 
doors, until I came to the 
restroom. Hearing a shower 
on, I wondered if it was being 
used by a possible covert. 
Thinking quickly, I ducked 
into the bathroom and flush- 
ed a couple of the toilets. 
Almost immediately a loud, 
painful scream followed by 
some heavy-duty cussing 
told me I had come on 
another opportunity to 
change a life. 

I went back out in the hall 
and waited. In a couple of 
minutes the native emerged 
from the shower, dripping 
wet with a towel wrapped 
around his waist. 

1 greeted him warmly, 
"Hello there." 

"You the one who flushed 
the John without yelling?" he 

asked, obviously upset. 

"Well, yes, I am . . ." bi 
before I could finish explair 
ing he instructed me to do 
few things that are physically 
impossible. Then he turned 
and stomped down the hall. 
Courageously. 1 called after 
him, "Please, will you take 
this little paper on how you 
can have a healthier and 
more abundant life?" 

He turned around, a look of 
disbelief on his face. "Listen 
sucker, you better read it 
yourself and add a paragraph 
on what happens to 
health of jerks who don't yell 
when they are about to scald 
someone!" He went in his 
room and slammed the door. 

A bit crestfallen, I finished 
handing out my tracts 
was just heading back up the 
hall to my room when I i 
another guy carrying a load 
of books. When we 
within talking distance I said, 
"Excuse me. would you 
please take this little 
phamphlet on how you car 
live a fuller, happier life?" 

"I'm a Theology major." he 
crisply informed me. "That'; 
ok," I said, handing him s 
tract, "There still might be 
hope for you anyway." He 
took it. I was elated.

>enate To Poll Students on the Name Change 

The second senate meeting 
of the vear was held at 8:00 
p.m. in Wright Hall last 
Monday night, October 10. 
It was called to order by Vice 
President J. T. Shim. 

Tammy Schlisner, Student 
Association Secretary, then 
wiled the roll and the devo- 
(jjonal was given by Terry 
eantrell. S. A. Parliamentar- 
8n, Steve Schmidt, read the 
absences and tardies. 
Senator Reginald Rice was 
absent and Senator Karen Jo 
McClure was tardy. She 
stated that her excuse was 
that she could not find the 
room. The Senate voted to 
excuse Senator McClure for 
being tardy. 

Parliamentarian Schmidt 
spoke on the correct parlia- 
mentary procedure and the 
proper way to handle a 
motion in senate. Senator Ed 
Keplinger gave a short talk 
concerning what a senator's 
Job is and what they should 
"0. He also spoke about past 
senate projects and asked the 
senators to be thinking about 
"lis year's senate project. 

ee President Shim 

"ought up the subject of a 
|onstitutional amendment to 
fnange the names of two S. 
^- offices of Student Services 
jj"! Social Activities and 
pould change these to Vice 
pesident tor Student Ser- 

vices and Vice President for 
Social Activities. The senate 
voted to submit it to the 
student body at the next 
General Assembly. 

Orlando S. A. President 
James Gershon called and 
spoke with the senate con- 
cerning activities on the Or- 
lando campus. So far, the 
extension campus students 
have had a Welcome Back 
Party, a Beach Vespers, and 
are planning a special Hallo- 
ween Party. They are also 
planning a Christmas Party 
for the Pediatrics Ward at 
Florida Hospital, with gifts 
for each child from the 
Student Association. 

S. A. President Glenn 
McElroy presented two 
names for consideration for 
the Judiciary Committee. 
Daniel Moore and Leah 
Louderback were presented 
and will be voted on at the 
next Senate meeting. The 
two names for the Judiciary 
Committee that were pre- 
sented at the last meeting 
were Sandra Schiau and 
Greg Ellis and were ap- 
proved by the senate at this 

President McElroy also 
presented names for two 
more committees. These 
were Bev Tillman and Betty 
Durichek for the Publications 
Committee, and Sherry Try- 

on and Donald Chase for the 
Academic Affairs Commit- 
tee. These names were 
approved by the senate at 
this meeting. 

McElroy then gave an 
update on the Jog-A-Thon. 
Currently, there are 170 
people signed up to partici- 
pate, with over 1300 sponsor 
forms turned in. The S. A. 
will still be accepting these 
forms until Friday, October 
14. There will be a pre-regis- 
tration on Sunday at 10:45 
a.m. and the run itself will be 

from 11:00 to 12:00 noon. 

Senator Terry Cantrell led a 
discussion for the name 
change and gave several 
disadvantages for Daniells 
College and advantages for 
Southern Adventist College. 
There was a lengthy discus- 
sion among the senators, 
which slowed the progress of 
the meeting considerably. It 
was decided that each sena- 
tor would poll their consti- 
tuents and find out their 

present it to the Board of 
Trustees as their one choice. 

J. T. Shim then reminded 
the senators about Senator of 
the Year, which is presented 
to the most outstanding sen- 
ator at the end of the year, 
usually at the Senator's Ban- 
quet. The senate was ad- 
journed at approximately 
9:45 p.m.

Are college students made out of money? Nol Are they 
using the additional $20.00 of the minimum towards getting 
a balanced meal? Nol 

•f a person finds himself at only $50.00 towards the end jf 
■ne month, what is there left to do, but go to the cafe and 
junk food on the billV 

Wouldn't it be nice if we could go to the Village Market 
and charge $20.00 on our food bill? There, we would at 
least have the opportunity to be able to buy a few nutritional 
items such as, a loaf of bread, a head of lettuce, carrots, 
celery, raisins, etc. 

As for me, it's hard to reach $50.00, let alone $70.00 and I 
would prefer to get some of my "balanced diet" at the 
Village Market where there is a bigger selection.

The Southern Acconl I 

Dear Editor, 

There is so much talk about 
the proposed name change 
for Southern College of Se- 
venth-day Adventists. Espe- 
cially on campus is this topic 
discussed. At the present, 
the public is unsure of what 
our name is and even many 
students do not know that 
our full name includes "of 
Seventh-day Adventists." 
With so much confusion 
about our present name, I 
agree whole-heartedly that it 
should be changed. 

Southern Missionary Col- 
lege was changed to South- 
ern College of Seventh-day 
Adventists last year. The 
school is now referred to as 
Southern College, SC, or just 
Southern. However, every 
shortened version leaves out 
a very important aspect to 

Dear Editor, 

In response to Mark 
Newmeyer's letter concern- 
ing Christian freedom and 
school rules. 1 feel compelled 
to share a few more thoughts 
about true Christian free- 
dom. I feel that there is a 
difference between the free- 
dom from rules to which 
Mark was referring and the 
freedom we as Christians 
enjoy. Social freedom deals 
with rules and laws that a 
society imposes upon every- 
one. The Biblical view of 
freedom is not one of social 
freedom, but of freedom 
from the slavery of sin and 
freedom for obedience to 

the name; that it is a Se- 
venth-day Adventist institu- 
tion. If a name was chosen 
from a well-known Adventist 
in history, identity would be 
given back to the college. 
Also a short, concise name 
could then be used to refer to 
the school. 

The name Southern College 
also lacks significance. 
There are many other col- 
leges with "southern" as 
part of their name. When 
the latter part of our name is 
used, of Seventh-day Ad- 
ventists. it not only makes it 
cumbersome, but may invoke 
prejudice. The full name, 
to some, seems to say that 
the school is not a place of 
higher learning, but just a 
religious school. A name 
such as Daniells, which is 
one of the proposed names, 


The freedom described 
m Paul s writings is a spirit- 
ual liberty, unrelated to ex- 
ternal circumstances. He 
spent time in jail during his 
letter writing period, yet his 
wntmgs are the source of 
most of our knowledge about 
freedom. What does this say 
about the freedom of which 
he speaks? To me. it says 
that freedom, in the Biblical 
sense, is all together differ- 
ent from freedom in the 
social sense. This is how 
Paul could say he had 
learned "the secret of facing 
plenty and hunger, abun- 
dance and want" (Phil. 

would discredit this preju- 
dice and make an avem 
witnessing. While the 
would suggest that the 
school is a place of higher 
learning, it would also give 
significance back. 

With confusion reigning 
about our present name and 
our past name, the most 
logical course of action would 
be to change it once a 
"Once again?" people ask. 
Yes. If we want to be 
recognized as a school with 
pride, a completely different 
name would do the trick. A 
school without pride (which 
is what we are with out 
present name) is like bread 
without butter. Therefore, i 
name change is most appW' 

Patrick Donohue 

4:12). Peter, too, explained 
this concept when he if' 
structs us to submit to eveiT 
human institution for the 
Lord's sake (I Peter 2:13)- 
He then says, "Act as fre^ 
men, do not use your fre^' 
dom as a covering for evili 
but use it as bondslaves of 
God"(I Peter 2:16). The 
emphasis here is oi 
difference between socieia' 
and spiritual freedoms. 

If, as Paul imples, w. 
not dealing with social free- 
dom , what kind of freedom i^ 
it? This question is a» 
swered in Romans 8:1-2- 
Here Paul writes that thos« 

October 13, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

I who are "in Christ" have 
I been set free "from the law 
I of sin and death." This is 
I not freedom from rules, nor 
lis it freedom determined by 
-:,ociety. It is an inner 
I freedom that can only be 
J obtained through becoming 
lone of His disciples and 
Ithrough Him, coming to 
Ijcnow the truth. The know- 
l.edge of His truth is the 
■source of freedom, and the 
■freedom is the end of slavery 
|to sin. 

Since, then, we are freed 
Irom slavery to sin, and the 
fconds that restricted us are 
Kroken. we are free to re- 
spond to God and obey His 
i commands. Ever 
lince the fall, man had been 

under the bondage of sin, 
unable to be totally obedient 
to God. But when Christ 
gives us freedom, we can 
respond to His callings and 
obey His laws. This is 
freedom for which He set us 
free (Gal. 5:1). This is 
reconciliation to God, a major 
result of Christ's mission of 
earth. "Christ called us to 
freedom" (Gal. 5:13), and 
Christ alone gives us spirit- 
ual freedom. So then, we are 
indeed free, truly free from 
sin and free to serve God. 
This freedom is ours whether 
we are in physical slavery, 
prison, a communist country, 
and even and Adventist col- 

Kevin Rice 

Dear Editor, 

Why does it seem that 
ignorance and stupidity a- 
bound so much on this 
campus? Case in point: On 
Sunday nights it is o.k. to 
watch CBS down in the Talge 
rec room. But you just try to 
watch NBC or ABC and see 
what happens. It seems that 
CBS is the only station 
"policy" says we can watch. 
Now I agree that this is a 
small thing, but it does 
represent a right that we 
students here at Southern 
College need to stand up for. 
I am glad that God endowed 
each and every one of us with 
one thing: the power of 
choice. Why are so many of 
our choices already made for 
us? (prat least they're tried 

to be made.) Why can't we 
choose for ourselves what to 
watch or what to listen to? 
Each and every one of us is 
an individual and has the 
right to make up our own 
minds. Simply because a 
dean believes one thing and 
believes that we as students 
should also believe the same 
thing does not make the dean 
right. We lose so much 
individuality because there 
exists with the administra- 
tion of this school a model 
that each and every one of us 
is supposed to live up to. 

And the humorous side to 
this is, if you go to a faculty 
member or dean and ask 
him/her why this situation 
exists, he/she will give you 
an answer paralleling this 

letter's first sentence. Why 
can't the students get to- 
gether and decide what is 
best for them? Why do we 
have to wait until age 22 to 
become adults? Why are the 
students so apathetical to- 
ward this situation when so 
many oppose it? It doesn't 
make a whole lot of sense. 

It sorta reminds me of Nazi 
Germany where you obeyed 
just because it was what you 
were told to do. Where do all 
our "policies" come from? 
They have to originate from 
somewhere and for some 
reason. But fortunately, 
nobody knows where. I 
thank God for my freedom of 
choice. Do you?

Bill Young Salutes Music 

Saturday night, October 15, 
Southern College will be 
presenting live entertain- 
ment with The Bill Young 
Variety Show. There will be 
two appearances, with the 
first one beginning at 8:00 
p.m., and the second at 10:00 
p.m. The admission is only 
$1.50 per person. 

The Variety Show will be 
performing a selection of 
different musical styles. If 
you enjoy the country sounds 
of a fiddle and banjo, Steve 
Grice, Jonathon Wurl, Bill 
Young, Pierre Belhomme, 
and Joey Pickett will be 
providing the music for the 
bluegrass part of the show. 

A quartet featuring Myron 
Mixon-bass, Dick Bird-bari- 

tone, Dana Reed-first tenor, 
and Bill Young as lead vocal, 
will be doing some of the 
famous Oak Ridge Boys 

If you prefer the more 
contemporary sounds of to- 
day, there will be music by 
famous recording artists 
such as Barry Manilow and 
Billy Joel. A salute to music 
is also included in the pro- 
gram which features one 
well-known song from each 
decade since 1950. 

Bill Young, who is a junior 
music major at SC, has

Young has been involved in 
music ever since he was 
small. He plays quite a 
number of musical instru- 
ments ranging from guitar 
and violin to trumpet and 
trombone. As a Christian 
musician, Young feels very 
strongly "that as a Christian, 
you can perform secular as 
well as gospel music. But as

should definitely be an indi-

KeflecHon Writing 

by Jerry Russell 

A few weeks ago, I had the 
I opportunity to go to Lookout 
I Mountain and hike up to 
I Sunset Rock. It was a 
I Sabbath afternoon and some 
I friends and I piled into the 

r for the ride to Point Park, 
I high atop the mountain. As 

; rode, all talk was on the 
Ibealitiful view from Sunset 
I Rock, but after further dis- 
Icussion, we each confessed 
I that we had never been there 
|but had only heard of the 

Finally we reached Point 
I Park and we scrambled out of

rocK. This won t be so 

bad." "Yea, we'll be there 
in no time at all," chimed 
several members of the 
group. We followed the sign 
down several stair cases to a 
dusty, rock trail that seemed 
to wind around the moun- 

As we came around a bend 
in the trail, we stumbled 
upon a large rock with a 
beautiful view of the valley. 
Surely this was Sunset Rock. 
We sat down and just gazed 
out into the valley. 

After 10 or 15 minutes, 
someone said, "Somehow 1 
expected more than this. I 
don't think this is Sunset 

Rock. I'm going on further to 
find it." Others disagreed. 
"No, this is just as they said 
It would be. I'm staying here 
and besides, I'm tired." 
With that the group split just 
about in half, with some 
going on and the rest staying 

As we climbed further up 
the trail, the rocks seemed to 
get bigger and there were 
more of them. The climb 
was becoming increasingly 
harder. Just then we 
reached another ledge. This 
one had a much better view 
than the other one and we 
were pretty sure this was 
Sunset Rock. We had finally 
made it - we thought, when 

we saw people coming down 
the trail who had been there. 
They had actually been to 
Sunset Rock and they said it 
was great and that we 
shouldn't stop now. 

Once again there were those 
in our group who didn't 
believe that Sunset Rock 
could be any better than the 
rock we were at, and the 
group split again with just 4 
orSofus going on. 

We started out on the trail 
again, hoping that we could 
make it and sure enough, 
just around the corner and 
over a few more rocks, we 
could see Sunset Rock. 
Scrambling over the last few 
boulders, we ran to the edge 

of the rock and peered out 
into the valley. Just over the 
crest of a distant hill, the sun 
sprayed the valley with tints 
ofgold and orange. 

We knew we had reached 
our goal. We had been 
faithful and persistent and 
didn't give up when rocks got 
in our way. It was then that 
we sat down in a circle for 
vespers. And as we drew the 
Sabbath to a close, we 
couldn't help but feel sorry 
for our friends who had come 
so far. They came so close, 
but found something that 
they thought was better. If 
they had only had faith, they 
wouldn't have lost their way. 

[Private Financial Aid For Students 

I Students returning to school 
phis fall may now apply for 
ncial aid, accord- 
ing to The Scholarship Bank. 

According to Steve Danz, 
r of the nation-wide 
, private financial aid 
s the most often overlooked 
Bource of student aid, yet 
feccounts for nearly 500 mil- 
n dollars, or one-quarter of 

The Scholarship Bank is the 
largest private search firm in 
the country and works with 
college financial aids offices 
to bring private scholarships 
to student applicants. A 
student sends a stamped 
self-addressed envelope to 
the bank at 10100 Santa 

Monica #2600, Los Angeles, 
CA, 90067 and receives a 
questionaire. The form is 
then sent back to the bank 
with a check for $35 or $45 
depending on how many 
sources the student wants 
(25 or up to 75). The package 
which is then sent to the 
student gives the name, type 
of award, eligibility factors, 
and address of the source. 

Or, the student can order the 
application for that particular 
source directly from the bank 
after receiving the print-out 
According to the director, 
most students find about 15 
sources they actually write 

Private financial aid is 
usually not need-based, but 
involves such factors as the 

student's desired major and 
occuaptional goal, area of the 
country they wish to work in, 
religion, special interests, 
hobbies, and parents' 
background. A number of 
new scholarships.^ this year 
have been opened for busi- 
ness, computer, health and 
law students, for a total of 
about 25.000 scholarships.

Southern Cynic 

October 13, 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

As I was traveling abroad 
last week to get ideas for this 
column, I was sitting in the 
airport studying accounting 
and waiting for my plane. 
Just ^s I was getting into the 
most thrilling part about 
General Ledgers and adjust- 
ing entries, I heard a girl's 
voice behind me. 

"What school do you 
attend?" she asked. 

"Oh, just a small, private 
college outside of Chatt- 
anooga," I replied. 
"Chattanooga . . . isn't tnai 
a suburb of Collegedale?" 

"Why, yes." I was 
astonished at her knowledge 
of geography. "Well," she 
-said, I'm from your sister 
'college, Bob Jones Univer- 

Just at that moment I 

noticed her wrapped braid 
hairstyle and polyester 

"Why, of course. I should 
have recognized you - we're 
everywhere, aren't we?" I 

She shifted in her seat so 
she could get a better look at 
my Calvin Kleins and my 
polo shirt. Quickly, I tried to 
lick off some of my lipstick 
and while she glanced at a 
passing stranger, I frantical- 
ly rubbed my cheeks to try 
and make them look more 
natural. Finally, as I finished 
tucking my watch into my 
purse, she spoke, "I hear 
you all have gone liberal at 
SC. I was reading your new 
handbook the other day and 
you can wear slacks without 
dresses now. I suppose the 

beard rule is to try to regain 
the Biblical look, huh?" 

"Well," I stammered, 
"there is one guy on campus 
that resembles Simon Peter. 
I think he even likes fish- 

I could tell she wanted to 
pursue the subject when 
she got out the handbooks 
from the two schools and 
opened them. 

"Wowl" I exclaimed, 
noticing the red underlining 
and detailed notes in her Bob 
Jones handbook. "You real- 
ly read that stuff?" 

"Of course," she said, 
"don't you?" 
"Uh, well, um . . I skimmed 
it once." 

"I was just noticing the 
differences in our rules. I 
see your school has already 

progressed to the 1960's. 
But don't you know that true 
Christianity is still manifest- 
ed In the early 40's?" 

"I guess I just never 
thought about it." I replied, 
a little embarrassed. 

"Here. Look at your 
handbook. Why these young 
freshmen are allowed out on 
unchaperoned dates with 
men! And men are even 
allowed in the lobby of the 
girls' dorm until 8:00. 
What's this? Caucasian 
students are allowed to inter- 
relate with negros, Hispan- 
ics, and even Oriental stu- 
dents. Don't you think this 
might lead to interracial dat- 

I could tell she was getting a 
little upset now.

Collegedale Goes 
Back To Church 

October 20. 1983 

College life is full of 
surprises. One of the 
unpleasant surprises 
countered he 
first trip to the Collegedale 
Church. Somehow, looking 
at it from the outside, .1 
expecting a grand, majestic 
sanctuary that would take 
one's breath away, but then I 
went inside. 

It took my breath away, 
alright, but it ' 
quick div 
swimming pool, which is 
exactly what the interior 
me of. Pale blue 
walls, a huge sloping sanctu- 
ary -- all that was missing 
was the chlorine. Then they 

started talking about renova- 
tion. I laughed. This church, 
I thought, is beyond help. 

The first service in the 
newly redecorated church 
will be held October 22, 
1983. Those of you who have 
not had an opportunity to see 
the progress on the church 
are in for a pleasant surprise 
this weekend. Although 
October 22 is the well-known 
anniversary of the Great 
Disappointment, it is more 
signigicantly the anniversary 
of the first service ever to be 
held in the Collegedale 
church, in October of 1965. 

Other projects that have 
been or will be completed 
include the removal of the 
hanging lights and the in- 
stallation of a new public 
address system, a movie 
screen, and padding for the 
pews. The foyer walls will be 
redone with fabric-covered 
panels and the glass between 
the sanctuary and the foyer 
will be replaced by stained 
glass scenes illustrating the 
four Gospels. 

The backdrop behind the 
platform has been built up to 
accommodate the new organ.

Hearing completion, the 
church voted last spring to go 
ahead with a $310,000 pro- 
ject to improve the accoustics 
and beauty as well as the 
comfort of the church. 

To describe in detail all that 
has been done to the church 
would fill a large book. The 
most obvious change that is 
noticed upon entering is the 

wood pai 
glass that 

take up a great deal of space 
at the front of the sanctuary, 
and there was some concern 
that rhe congregaiion's at- 
tention would be drawn more 
to the organ than to the 
speaker. In order to make 
the speaker the focal point, 
says interior designer Harold 
Duckett, the pulpit should be 
unique. And, accordingly, 
the pulpit planned for the 
church is outstanding: it is 
made of three panels of 3/4 
inch glass, with a top of solid

singing as well as the spoken 

The stained glass at the 
back of the church over the 
balcony depicts a scene of

pattern is carried over into

Consideration is a great thing. And it can be really helpful 
sometimes, too. Like when the guy next to you in class 
needs to get vour notes from the last class and you lend 
them with a smile. Or. like when someone you know is 
really busy and doesn't have time to run down to the VM for 
another box of laundry soap and you volunteer because you 
were going to the CK anyway. That's consideration. It's 
also appreciation. 
Lending a hand or being willing to help out means that you

you consider them to be soneone

' dictionary definition for appreciation (well, one of 
them) says that it is "gratefulness; gratitude. 1'-- -The 
dictionary also says that it is awareness of perception. 
Being aware ofthe feelings and needs of others can help us 
to be more appreciative of them.

Reflection Writing 

ve never considered 

f to have many talents. 

I was a child I tried 

Iseveral hobbies such as shell 

land rock collecting, and for 

years I took piano 

■lessons. But to no avail-to 

Ithis day I can't play a song on 

■the piano. As I grew, I found 

Ithat there weren't very many 

; that I could do well. I 

Ididn't let this bother me till I 

ew a little older. 

After I graduated from 

ademy with less than fly- 

g colors, I had a hard time 

rciding on a major. As I 

IS growing up, I'd always 

wanted to be a PE teacher. 

What could be better than 
playing football and basket- 
ball with little kids all day? 
My life would be one big 
recess. But as 1 neared the 
end of my academy days, I 
began to look toward the 
business field. My father 
and brother were both bus- 
inessmen and what they did 
looked fascinating so I decid- 
ed to become a business 
major. Even now in my third 
year of college, I'm not sure 
what 1 want to do with my life 
and I've always envied those 
who arrived on campus 
knowing their goal and line 
of interest. 

I imagine that a lot of people 
go through life this way- 
feeling jealous and envious 
of those who have made it 

This kind of thinking causes 
nothing but damage to our- 
selves and our relationships 
with others. It's important to 



ments and taleni 

feeling inferior i 


God has givei 
person according 
ability. Those 
handle five talents r 
five those who can 1 
two receive two, and 



person f 

goes with ea 

We tend to overlook our 
natural talents because soci- 
ety forces us to compare 
ourselves with others. My 
interest in writing doesn't 
seem like much compared to 
what many people have 
done. But it makes me 
happy and I enjoy it, so I 
keep at it. 

Some of us seem to have to 
search harder for our talents, 
but they are there. God has 
blessed each and everyone of 
us and he requires no more 
out of us than we are capable 
of. "He lays upon his 

servants no burdens that 
they are not able to bear." 
(see Matthew 25:13-30) 

How many times have 1 
coveted someone else's 
talents? By coveting these 
talents. I have blinded 
myself from seeing the many 
beautiful gifts that God has 
bestowed on me.

Hey. Collegedale! Jusl a 
littie note to let you know 
we're alive and active in 
the Sunshine State. 
We began the semester by 
electing and appointing Or- 
lando Campus SA officers. 
They are: 
President-James Gershon 
Vice-Presidenl-Andy Nail 
Secretary-Kathy Fillman 
Trcasurcr-Pat Bourque 
Pastor-Doug Gates 
Public Relations-Evonne 

Decembe? Senior VP/Or- 
lando-Carmen Lau 

These officers, along with 
Dean Kinsey. Mrs. Swin- 
son, and Mrs. Brown have 
planned several activities 
for the semester. Some 
ihai have already taken 
place are ihe films "A Man 



'•Ben Hur" which were 
shown in our dorm lobby. 
Root-beer fioats, pop corn 
and apples were served as 

On October 1, the film 
"No Deposit. No Return" 
was shown at Orlando Jun- 
ior Academv as a fundrais- 
er for the SA. 

Sunday. October 9, was 
the highlight of the scmest-

The hot Florida sunshine 
allures many students be- 
tween or after classes to go 
canoeing, water-skiing with 
off-campus friends, sun- 
bathing, and swimming at 
the pools. There have been 
many trips to the beaches 
so far. 

Sounds like we're on 
vacation, right? Well, not 
exactly. Most of us are up 
at 6:00 a.m. and on our way 
lo labs, wide awake. The 
first few weeks, classes and 

ing, but we seem to be 
adjusting to the concen- 
trated program. 

In the evenings, we go 
jogging or take the "Exer- 
cise course" around the 
lake to clear the cobwebs 
from hours of studying. 
The co-ed aerobics class, 
led by Pat Bourque. facili- 
tates release of built-up 
tension and acts as a diver- 
sion from feelings of mis- 
sing our families and spe- 
cial friends on the main 

We're especially excited 
about the spiritual activi- 
ties. On September 23, 
Vespers was held on the 
beach. Singing, prayer, 
and watching the beautiful 

the tone for Sabbath. 

Our most recent event was 
the SA sponsored Fellow- 
ship Retreat held October 
14-16 at a nearbv camp. 

The weekend was filled 
with many fun events such 
as canoeing, sailing, ping 
pong, swimming, and sing- 
ing. Doug Gates provided 
us with some laughs by 
climbing a sailboat mast to 
free it from some branches. 
Once untangled, the boat 
tipped over, sending Doug 
into the lake fully dressed! 

Larry Stephens, a Forest 
Lake Academy teacher and 
Counselor to the Orlando 
students. provided the 
highlight of the weekend 
with four Bible studies 
about the three angels' 
messages and our salva- 
tion. Special music for the 
entire weekend was provi- 
ded by David Butler and 
Pat Duff on guitars, and 
Cathy England. Rhonda 
Facundus. Mauri Lang, 
and Rhonda Yost as vocal- 
ists. Rhonda Facundus 
also played a trumpet solo 
as well. The weekend 
allowed us to become bet- 
ter acquainted as friends, 
as a family, and with God. 

This week was scheduled 
for midterms and there will 
be some finals in OB and 
Med-Surg as well. We 
have Friday off and some of

NFL Picks 


As many of you did. I also 
made my own pre-season 
picks for the NFL this year. 
However, it wasn't until last 
week that 1 was asked to 
submit some predictions for 
this year to the Accent. 

Some things about the NFL 
are pretty hard to explain 
these days: such 



Baltimore Colts. Each 

season seems to be full of its 
own surprises. 1 don't forsee 
many changes in the stand- 
ings between now and the 
end of the season. Here's 
how it should end up--

In the NFC look for Dallas 
and San Francisco to emerge 
for a rematch of the 
championship game of two 
years ago. This year Dallas 
should be victorious. 
The AFC playoffs should be 
a real war. 1 look for Miami 
to be more consistent during 
the 2nd half of the season 
and once again prove to be 
one of the top teams in the 
NFL. However, it looks to 
me like another Super Bowl 
featuring the Dallas Cowboys 
and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Southern Cynic 

October 20, 1983/SOUTEHRN ACCENT/7 

Puh-LEASE!! Give me a 
break! I hate to be the one to 
bring it up, but something 

, has to be done about the 

I situation. Can we talk? 

I Green pants and yellow socks 
are not IT this year. In fact, 
they weren't IT (referring to 
the current trend in fashion) 
last year. As a matter of fact, 
not only is it considered out 
of it and totally distasteful, 
but let's be real, it's .also 
ugly. A few years ago the 
"preppie" look came into its 
own and was very popular for 
a while. Then, thanks to a 
mass influx of common 
sense, the look died out. 

However. Southern College 
.harbors a few mentally dis- 

vtraught individuals who re- 

fuse to yield to changing 
trends and continue to dress 
in such an altogether, out-of- 
date manner. This state of 
mind seems to have been so 
deeply etched upon many a 
college student and his color- 
coded mentality that some 
have found it very difficult to 
sacrifice their glow-in-the- 
dark clothing for some of the 
more sofisticated and new- 
wave duds of our day. 

Originally, the prep student 
was the status symbol of the 
fashion world. Private 

schools attended by the 
wealthy were looked to as an 
example of the way the rest 
of the planet should dress 
themselves. Their quaint 
flourescent styles soon over- 

flowed into the university 
and secondary school levels 
and everyone found them- 
selves covered in alligators, 
polo players and thousands 
of other creatures sewn into 
their shirts, belts, socks, 
pants, wallets, key chains, 
door mats, shoes and unmen- 
tionables. This less than 
subtle fad became so out- 
rageous that it wasn't long 
before everyone was sick and 
thoroughly nauseated with 
the very idea of being 
"prepped out". Miracles do 

Unfortunately, some nostal- 
gic and altogether bone- 
headed "preppies" refuse to 
dispose of their syncopated 
sportswear. Most schools 

have reversed the previous 
code of ethics which stated 
that, "if you can't dress 
preppie, then don't!" and 
replaced it with a new guide- 
line warning the student 
body that all persons caught 
dressing in such a manner 
would be forced to write a 
thesis on good taste and take 
a mandatory class on color 
coordination for no credit! 
It seems all too obvious that 
some old habits never die. 
But this one needs to be 
buried. This is not to say you 
are what you wear, it's the 
person beneath the clothes 
that is important. However, 
it's very hard to take a 
person seriously when he 
looks like a walking box of 

crayons! The situation has 
gotten so bad that rumor has 
it that some campuses have 
set up free anonymous coun- 
seling sessions to aid those 
individuals suffering from 
this strange desire to walk 
around looking like their 
color-blind grandmother 

dressed them. 

I guess it would be easy to 
say, "Hey you, bag those 

But that would be neither 
polite or appropriate. It's 
much easier to be honest and 
mature and state the matter 
simply. If you want to dress 
like a parrot during the 
mating season, have at it.

Occasionally the library 
has held a "free day" on 
which students could re- 
turn overdue books without 
paying a fine. The purpose 
of the day was to encourage 
the return of books that had 
been lost or missing for 
some time and to help 
those students who had 
inadvertently overlooked or 
misplaced a book and had 
incurred a large fine. It 
was not meant to aid and 
abet students who are de- 
liberately delinquent in re- 
turning books. 

■■Free days" are not 
regularly scheduled events 
(hat occur each semester 
without fail. This semester 
the library has not included 
one in its schedule, so we 
urge those who are inten- 
tionally ignoring overdue 
notices to please return all 
books so that (1) others can 
use them and (2) large fines 
will not accrue.

Where Luther Walked 

^y Bill Wohlers 


November 8-12 has been 
-»;signated as Martin Luther 
[ubilee Week to acknowledge 
Jie 500th birthday of the first 
iPiotestant Reformer. Seven 
events have been planned to 
commemorate the birth of this 
most significant religious 
leader on November 10, 1483, 
in the German town of Eisle- 

The week will open with 
chapel on Tuesday, November 
8, in the P.E. Center. Dr. 
Envin Sicher will present a 
live impersonation of the great 
reformer. Dr. Sicher is a 
native of Austria, holds a 

doctorate from the University 
of Southern California, and 
has taught at Andrews Univer- 
sity. He is currently Professor 
of History at Southwestern- 
Adventist College. 

A brand new travelogue film 
will be shown at prayer meet- 
ing on Wednesday evening at 
7:00 p.m. Entitled "Where 
Luther Walked," this film is 
narrated by Yale historian and 
noted Luther biographer, Ro- 
land Sainton. It presents the 
work of Luther by taking the 
viewer to the many locations 
where he labored, most of 

which are now in East Ger- 
many. Thursday's chapel will 
continue the Luther week with 
a performance of Mendel- 
ssohn's "Reformation Sym- 
phony" by the Southern Col- 
lege Symphony Orchestra. 

The week will climax on 
Friday and Sabbath, Novem- 
ber 11 and 12. Dr. Daniel 
Augsberger will be the guest 
speaker for Vespers in the 
church on Friday evening at 
8:00 p.m. He will present the 
personal side of Luther's life. 
Dr. Augsberger is Professor of 
Church History at the An- 
drews University Theological 

Seminary. He was invited to 
attend the recent symposium 
to celebrate Luther's birthday 
in Erfurt, East Germany. Dr. 
Augsberger will be speaking 
to the Association of Adventist 
Forums on Sabbath afternoon 
at 3:00 in the Academy Audi- 
torium. He will focus at that 
time on what happened to 
Lutheranism after the death of 
Martin Luther. 

The two worship services 
Sabbath morning will also 
focus on Luther with a presen- 
tation of his main ideas as they 
are revealed in his words and 

m his songs. These services 
are under the direction of 
Elder Gerald Morgan. 

The Luther Jubilee will end 
with a showing of the film 
"Luther" at 8:00 and 10:00 
p.m. in the Thatcher Hall 
worship room. Starring Stacy 
Reach, this film is an adapta- 
tion of John Osborne's play 
which won the New York 
Drama Critic's Award and the 
Tony Award as the best play of 
1964. The film is sponsored 
by the Division of Religion as 
part of their Perspectives Film 

Students Advised for 
d Semester 

The procedure for advise- 
ment involves the student first 
making an appointment to 
his or her advisor. - T^ 
before the appointment, the 
student should look over the 
new class schedule and at 
least get an idea of what 
classes are offered when. 
Although this step is not 
mandatory. Miss.Elam stated 
that it was a great help to both 
parties if the Student has an 
idea "where he's heading." 

After the schedule has been 
worked out and approved by 
the advisor, the student takes 
the completed form to the 
Records Office in Wright Hall, 
where each form is stamped 
with a number corresponding 
to the order in which it was 
received at the Records Office. 
This number is then used in 
determining the order in 
which students register for 
classes, which motivates the 
student to complete the form

of waiting until the class 
actually starts." 

After having registered, the 
student will have until Nov. 18 
to change his or her schedule, 
after which no changes will be 
made until the actual registra- 
tion takes place. 

Since getting the registration 
form in early increases the 
student's chances of getting 
the classes he or she desires, 
Miss Elam encouraged every- 
one to complete the advise- 
ment/Registration procedure 
as soon as possible. 

' 'God's prescription for 
success in our lives centers 
ground unity not doctrine." 
said Elder Mel Reese, this 
past Monday evening, as he 
addressed the congregation in 
the Collegedale Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. 

Elder Reese is holding a 
series of meetings here at the 
college this week to outline 
the "Principles for Practical 
Christian Living." He has 
spoken on this theme for the 
last three evenings and will 
continue his meetings through 
this Friday night. 

Elder Reese, in his first talk, 
discussed the importance of 
unity as it relates to our every- 
day lives. 

According to S.C. Chaplain. 
Jim Herman, the tneetings 
have been, and will contii>ue 
to be entertaining and infor- 
mative. Herman stated that 
he first heard Elder Reese a 
number of years ago and it 
greatly affected his views on 
Christianity and one's respon- 
sibilities to God. 

Herman also stated "The 
students will like what they 
hear. Elder Reese has a way 
of addressing issues in a 
simple, clear manner." In 
conclusion, Herman said that, 
"the students should take 
advantage of this opportunity 
to hear this dynamic 
preacher. ' '

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/November 3. 1983 



And Jesus said, "Except ye be converted, and become as 
little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 
Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I 
say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold 
the face of my Father which is in heaven. "Matthew 18:3, 10. 

Little ones are important to God. They were favorites of 
Jesus when He was on this earth. Christ even allowed the 
children to come to Him when the disciples tried to push 
them away. 

Little ones. Just who are the little ones? Are they only 
children under twelve? Under six? Or are we all little 
children in God's sight? 

God loves us all the same, no matter what we do or say or 
profess to be. He doesn't discriminate between how good or 
how bad we are, or what we look like or what we say or do. 
He loves us all the same and promises to always love us. He 
will never stop loving useven if we stop loving Him. He will 
always care. That's why He sent His Son to live on this 
earth. Jesus was supposed to set an example of God's 
unending love for us to follow. He did. 

But what are we doing about it? Are we following the 
example set before us and loving each other not matter what? 

I don't think so. Every day I see signs of unchristian 
behavior among all of us. We forget that others on this 
campus are little ones too. We forget that we will be held 
accountable for our actions to each other when Jesus comes 
again. We forget that loving is the most important work here 
on this earth that we can do. 

Douglass Cooper, in his book, Living God's Love, explains 
that the love we show to others is an indication of our own 
relationship with Chirst and the way we love others affects us 
in a positive manner that is helpful to our growth as 

"Little ones to Him belong: they are weak, but He is 
strong." Yes, Jesus loves me. He loves you, too. Even 
when we don't deserve it.

Greg Culpepper 

Dear Editor, 

This letter is directed to the 
Administration of this college. 
The subject of this letter is 
discipline. First, let us define 
the subject matter. Discipline 
is the eliciting of a desired 
response by depriving a per- 
son of rights and/or privi- 
leges. I feel discipline, to be 
truly effective, must be flex- 
ible. It should be tailored to 
the individual to fit that indi- 
viduals needs. Discipline 
should not consist of looking in 
the "Writ of Common Rules," 
scanning down the columns 
until the wrongdoing is found, 
and then blindly applying the 
discipline. This method helps 
neither the punished nor the 
punishor, and only breeds 
stagnation and close-minded- 
ness on the parts of both. 
As young adults, we students 
are in a delicate stage of our 
lives. Discipline for a mistake 
can have far-reaching reper- 
ispecially if error on 

the part of the punishor oc- 
curs. Therefore, the chances 
of a wrong decision being 
reached must be minimized; 
a future is at stake. To assist 
in this minimization, I submit 
the following proposal. All 
matters deemed serious 
enough for expulsion shall be 
brought before a council of 
five. This council shall include 
the President of the College, 
two faculty members (one 
from the department of the 
student's major), the Dean of 
Students, and a dean from the 
student's dormitory (of his/ 
her choice). 
When the student is brought 
before the council, the facts of 
the case shall be brought out 
to both the council's and the 
student's satisfaction. The 
council will then meet behind 
closed doors to decide on the 
disciphne to be administered. 
This decision should be based 
both on the facts of the case 
and input from the council 

members familiar with the 
student. I feel that a majority 
of four should be reached I 
before a dismissal is issued. 
No vote counts will be | 

It may be that the committee 
feels a proper punishmcDt 
would involve a temporary | 
loss of certain privileges, 
may be that the committee 
feels the student would profit 
most from counseling. Or it 
may be that the benefits the 
student accrues from the 
school are more than off set by | 
the costs he imposes on 
institution and therefore | 
should be rightly expelled. 

Whatever the decision, the 
chances of an incorrect verdict | 
due to such factors as mis- 
understanding, bias, or mis- 
application of due protess wiU 
certainly be lessened. 

I invite agreeing, concurring. 
and dissenting opinions. 

Thank you. , 

Greg Mitrakas 

November 3. 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/3 

Letters Continued 

Dear Editor. 

In reference to the Southern 
Cynic column of October 20, 
1983, we would like to respond 
regards to our "distasteful" 
land "ugly manner of dress- 
ling" Our deepest sympathy 
I goes out to the author of the 
■article in question, who is 
lobviously disillusioned by the 
ffact that the attire of a true 
rep is not a fad but a socially 
ccepted way of life. 

Our "mentally distraught 
minds" have been insulted by 

this lame piece of journalistic 
rubbish. In other words, the 
article was T.T.F.W. (For 
those of you who are unfam- 
iliar with prep jargon, please 
refer to page 224 of the 
Official Preppy Handbook.) 

I*rep clothes my at times 
appear to be somewhat flashy, 
but they are by no means 
outlandish as are most new- 
wave fashions. Our conserva- 
tive attire is well tailored and 
will last a long time, making 
them a great investment. Is 

fashion judged by how many 
holes are in a T-Shirt or the 
number of safety pins in one's 
ear? Is this what is considered 
stylish and becoming or is it 
faddish and outgoing? 

When meeting face to face, 
who would be more welcome 
to the ivy-covered walls of 
Harvard; Ralph Lauren or 
Betsy Johnson? 

Does the author realize that, 
much to our dismay, there are 
a subgroup of preppies who 
are connoisseurs of punk as 

mentioned on page 165 of the 
Offcial Preppy Handbook. 
There are serious prep-punk 
types who would dye their hair 
blue if they didn't work in law 
offices. However, there is no 
doubt that a true prep would 
not be caught dead in such an 
"altogether, out-of-date man- 
ner." The Preps may not be 
the majority, but will always 
be around and will always be 

As for our "color-blind 
grandmothers", we thank 

them and mummy and daddy, 
for teaching us to be sensible 
and to know the difference 
between tasteful and tacky. 
We would like to apologize to 
all those who are already 
familiar with this tradition, 
but some unenlightened souls 
obviously need to be made 
aware of the radical differ- 
ences between fashion and 



Marie Lovett, and 

Sherri Kelly 

r Editor. 

I have always heard a lot of 

[grumbling about The South- 

n Accent, saying such things 

it had poor information, 

complete coverage, and that 

was basically boring. To 

ese grumblings. I would 

ually return "it's just a 

fchool paper, what do you 

apect?" This reply contin- 

^d until I saw the last issue of 

s Southern Accent. 

feeing a fan and player of the 

pC. football intermural lea- 

I turned to the sports 

ction of the paper to see how 

e standings looked. I soon 

Lind myself very irritated at 

t fact that the statistics were 

bay out-of-date. Barzey's 

who had completed 

Iheir/ourrA game on October 

B8. was marked in the October 

|0 edition as 1-0. 

Now, I realize that some 
people might return this criti- 
1 by saying that there is a 
Elay between the time the 
Bper is written and the time it 
1 printed which might piti- 
Ely account for one game not 
|ing included in the statistics 

column, but m no way does it 
excuse three games not being 

After reading this section, I 
was clearly convinced that the 
first criticism of a lot of people 
was true - the paper included 
poor information. 

I thereafter looked at Dick 
Bird's article, noticing that he 
stated, "Barzey's team hand- 
ed King their second defeat. 
Barzey is now 2-0." I was 
happy to see that he came a 
little closer to the actual 
standings, but was still upset 
because of the fact that the 
Barzey vs. King game was 
Barzey's third game leaving 
them 3-0. 

more up-to-date standings 
than "Flagball Stats." I read 
it only to discover that 3/4 of 
the article was about one "A" 
league game and the other 1/4 
included one "B" league 

game and one Women's 
league game. Out of the 19 
S.C. intramural teams, 6 were 
mentioned and out of the 4 
games played each week, 3 
were mentioned. But what 
about what was mentioned in 
his article? Well, here is his 
description of the Women's 
league game: "In Monday's 
Women's league action. 
Laurencell downed Belden 
while raising their record to 
2-1 as Belden dropped to 0-2." 
This told me nothing more 
thart the stats had. {That is. if 
they would have been up-to- 
date. The stats had Laurencell 
at 1-1 and Belden at Q-\). 

Now I was convinced of the 
second criticism: Incomplete 

Totally disgusted. I turned to 
"NFL Picks" by Mike Burks. 
He had made predictions of 
the NFL final standings for the 
year. He quoted, "I don't 
foresee many changes in the 
standings between now and 
the end of the season." He 

was not kidding, since his 
predictions almost exactly 
matched the NFL's present 
standings in the Chattanooga 
Times. I asked myself, "Why 
do we have such things in our 
school paper of which we can 
see in the public paper?" 

My anger was turning into 
frustration as I looked at 
Mike's individual team pre- 
dictions. Let me quote two of 
you: "The Rams will not play 
as well" and "Houston will 
win one in the near future." 
These predictions are so 
vague they remind me of 
somethings I would read in a 

This was again another 
criticism legitimized. That of 
the paper being basically 
boring. I could cleariy see 
now that The Southern Accent 
had swung and missed three 
times giving it a strike-out 
with many people; or should 1 
say they dropped the pass in 
the end-zone? 


, I wouldn't criticize 

our paper if it wasn't con- 
structive, so here's the con- 

First, I believe that without 
question, the statistics should 
be kept up-to-date. Along 
with this point, I think all the 
stats ought to be included 
{since some past papers 
included just the "A" league 

Second, why not have a 
sentence or two giving the 
scores and a summary of the 
general trend of the game? 

Third, why not have some 
Southern College intramural 
predictions? I believe it would 
create a little more interest in 
the leagues. 

In summary, I believe that 
there is too much writing 
talent on this campus and too 
much money coming from our 
pockets to settle with this kind 
of journalism. 

1 am no longer going to say. 
"Ah it's justa college paper, 
what do you expect?" This is 
our paper and I think we 
should expect more.'

Time Out 

Laurencell's team stepped a 
little closer to the top spot by 
defeating previously unbeaten 
Donehoo 14-13 on Monday 

Laurencell drew first blood as 
Karen Miner intercepted a 
Beth Arias pass, raced the 
length of the field, and tossed 
the ball to an open Tracey 
Wills for a 6-0 lead. The 

Laurencell 7, Donehoo 0. 

On Donehoo's next posses- 
sion, quarterback Beth Arias 
pulled off what appeared to be 
the tying score. Arias scam- 
pered to the goal line only to 
have her scoring pass dropped 
in the end zone. 

Laurencell promptly held its 
goal-line stand for four con- 
secutive plays, thwarting the 
frustrated Donehoo offense. 

On its next possession, 
Donehoo needed only three 
plays to score, as Arais fired a 
scoring strike to Tarlene 

The extra-point attempt 
failed on a fine defensive 
effort by Jill Penrod. and 
Laurencell held a 7-6 halftime 

Laurencell began the scoring 
in the second half with an 
impressive drive, capped by a 
Miner to Nancy Schneidwind 
scoring play. Jenny 

Laurencell scored what turned 

out to be the winning con- 
version, putting her team 
ahead 14-6. 

Donehoo made a last ditch 
effort late in the game as Beth 
Arias connected with Suzanne 
Davis for a touchdown. The 
conversion was successful as 

The win gave Laurencell a 4-2 
record, and moved them into 
second place in the Women's 
league standings. Donehoo 
remains on top with a 4-1

SPORTS, Cont'd. 

The basketball season is here 
again, and it seems that if the 
Taige Hall consensus is cor- 
rect, the Philadelphia 76 ers 
will repeat as NBA champions 
in 1984. 

Although this may happen, 
the Sixers can expect a strong 
showing from Los Angeles, 
Milwaukee, and of course 

"We're not even thinking 
repeat." 76 ers coach Billy 
Cunningham said. "Our main 
objective is to go out and play 
as hard and well as we can, 
one game at a time." 
The Sixers were easy winners 
in "83, but they will find one 

[ big roadblock- their archrivals 
the Boston Celtics. 

The Celtics acquired defen- 
sive specialist Dennis Johnson 
from Phoenix, with the hope of 
tightening a shaky defense. 
Johnson's role will be to stop 
Celtic-killer Andrew Toney. 

An explosive scorer, Toney 
could be the finest shooter to 
ever wear the Sixer uniform. 

, The Johnson-Toney matchup 

[will provide NBA fans with 
e exciting action, for sure! 
The New Jersey Nets have a 

I decent team, but lack the 

talent or experience of Boston 
or Phaiy. The New York 
Knicks boast high-scoring 
Bernard King, but the key to 
their success will be the play 
of Bill Cartwright. 

Knick fans nicknamed the 
huge center "Invise-Bill" dur- 
ing last year's play offs, due to 
Cartwright's inability to stop 
Moses Malone. The big 
question is: Will Mr. Bill 
make a turnaround this 

The Washington Bullets have 
good players, but lack a 
dominating center. Look for 
them to battle the Knicks and 
Nets for the third place spot. 
In the NBA Central Division, 
the Atlanta Hawks are slight 
favorites to dethrone the 
Milwaukee Bucks as division 

The Hawks have the ability to 
beat the best of teams when it 
counts. They expect even 
greater things from Domin- 
ique Wilkins, who, when he 
shines, is Atlanta's most excit- 
ing player. This team has 
character, and is out to prove 
that a team which qualifies as 
a play off contender without 
winning its division doesn't 

have to bow out in the first 


The Bucks, led by stars - 
Sidney Moncrief and Marques 
Johnson will be as explosive 
as ever. The big question is: 
Can Bob Lanier play one more 

The 6-11 veteran continues to 
suffer with bad knees "His 
knees have been through both 
World wars and Vietnam," 
teammate Marques Johnson 
said. If Lanier stays healthy, 
the Bucks will be hard to beat. 

The Detroit Pistons have a 
fine playmaker in Isaiah 
Thomas, and some offensive 
punch in Kelly Tripucka, but 
back a proven center. It would 
be easier to predict the Aya- 
tollah Khomeini than the 

The Chicago Bulls should 
improve, but don't bet your 
Guaranteed Student Loan on 
it. The Indiana Pacers are 
going through a rebuilding 
process, and are in the same 
category. The Cleveland 
Cavaliers can only go. ..UP! 

The Midwest Division will 
get a facelift from last year's 
final standings. Some feel San 
Antonio's last gasp for an 
NBA championship ended last 

Management thought so, as 
the Spurs fired the coach who 
guided the team to the semi- 
finals. It's kinda hard to fire 
the team, so the Spurs begin 
the 1983-84 campaign with a 
new coach. Look for the San 
Antonio Spurs and Mr. Gervin 
to be dethroned by the Dallas 

The Mavs are nearing the 
end of Coach Dick Motta's 
five-year winning plan, and 
have added former Tennessee 
star Dale Ellis to an already 
talented squad which includes 
Jay Vincent, Mark Aquirre, 
and Rolando Blackman. 

The Denver Nuggets can 
"score" their opponents to 
death, but their idea of de- 
fense is scoring more points 
than the opposition. Fans can 
be sure of one thing: Watch- 
ing the Nuggets is anything 
but boring! 

The Kansas City Kings, the 
Houston Rockets with Ralph 
Sampson and the hard-luck 
Utah Jazz round out the 

Most people are picking the 
Phoenix Sums to win the 
Pacific Division crovm. So 
what? Contrary to popular 
opinion, the Los Angeles 
Lakers will prevail, as division 

champs, despite the departure 
of Norm Nixon to San Diego. 
The Lakers are loaded with 
talent on the floor and on the 
bench, but will have to find a 
replacement for the sharp- 
shooting Nixon. James 
Worthy should become an 
instant success in the Laker 

The Phoenix Suns will finish 
in their familiar spot, (second) 
and Portland could be a big 
surprise this season. Any 
Jack Ramsay team has the 
potemial to go all the way. 

The Seattle Supersonics have 
never fully recovered from the 
Dennis Johnson to Phoenix 
deal, and will continue to 
struggle. Gus Johnson is 
quick and exciting, but the 
Sonics need more players of 
this caliber to contend. 

The San Diego Clippers 
(whose name should be 
changed) have a sub-par 
team, despite individual talent 
in Norm Nixon, Terry 
Cummings and "has been" 
Bill Walton. The Clippers will 
need outstanding perfor- 
mances from all of these if 
they will escape the Pacific 
Division cellar.

Andrews University Presi-

members of the Montgomery 
County Police Department's 
Special Assignment Team 
after he allegedly solicited a 
plainclothes poltceman, 
according to official police 
records and one of the arrest- 
ing officers. 

After his arrest, Smoot was 
arraigned before a Silver 
Spring district court commis- 
sioner and was released on a 
$5000 personal recognizance 
bond, which means he is not 
required to pay the $5000 
unless he fails to appear in 
court on November 25. 

"All I can say is that, really, 
Dr. Bauer speaks for me." 
Smoot said when asked to 
comment on the arrest. He 
also declined to give the name 
of the attorney he has retained 
to assist in his defense, saying 
to do so "would not be 
appropriate at this time." 

The university president, 
who was in the Washington 
D.C. area at the time to 
attend the General Conference

Bauer, vice president for

Bauer then read an item from 
the police blotter report which 
appeared in the October 19 
edition of the Montgomery 
County Journal. That item 
was a one-sentence account of 
Smoot's arrest and the charge. 

Bauer's announcement ot 
Smoot's intention "to make a 
very vigorous defense" met 
with sporadic and audible 
"Amens" throughout the 

hushed congregation. 

"Today, I'd like to ask the 
student body to give their 
support." Bauer said. He also 
informed the student body 
that Charles B. Hirsch, Chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees, 
had been asked to conduct an 
investigation into the charges.

Student Movement Monday 
night. Hirsch said "I have 
been aware of the situation 
since it came out in the paper

Journal]. No official investi- 
gation has yet been started."

university president.

day, Thursday, and Friday for 
the occasion.

guys were seen in anything 
from polyester pants to purple 
and green socks to housecoats 
and curlers. 

On Western Day, the SC

ten-gallon hats.

The Fall Festival was capped

One thing that has really 
bothered me is that, although 
I have done many things since 
coming 13 months ago, the 
one thing that I have not done 
that I feel is really important is 
give Bible studies in an indi- 
vidual way. So finally, two 
weeks ago, 1 began giving 
studies to a family that lives 
several miles from here. 
Originally, I was supposed to 
give studies to only three 
people-a giri and her parents, 
but somehow people from all 
over the neighborhood have 
shown up. I have just begun 
so I don't know yet what this 
family is thinking or how they 
feel about the studies, but 1 do 
know that it has made me feel

thing that I regret is that I

"No, go back to sleep." "I'm 
sure I heard a noise." "Well,

"Wait, there it is again, kinda 
like a giant cricket!" "Well, 
why don't you get up and find

want to know that bad." 
"...Do you think it eats peo- 
ple?" And so I met the 
ferocious Ponapean Gecko, 
friend to man. foe to cock- 
roach. These lizards have the 
run of our home, and usually 
become active just after dark. 
At least one of these little 
monsters measures nine inch- 
es from snout to tail's end. 
Geckos have special toe pads 
that enable the lizard to climb 
vertical walls and hang from 
our ceiling. If I'm quicker 
than greased lightning, I can 
snatch one off the wall as it 
scurries by. But if I grab the 
reptile too far toward the tail. I 
end up with only the tai! and 
no lizard. This is one of many 
fascinating things on the Is- 
land of Ponape. Each day I 
discover new things, both in 
the classroom and out. My 
high school students are a 
constant source of surprising 
questions and insights about 
the world around them. 1 look 
forward each day to matching 
my wits to theirs as they come 
to school to study and learn. 
God is really working on many 
of my students. It is easy to 
see the ones who listen in 
Bible class, those who ques- 
tion the material of the Bible 
and the ones who want some- 
thing better out of life.

Already I have had a chance to 
share Jesus so many times on 
a personal basis along with the 
many planned programs. I 
would not trade a moment of 
Majuro for the time I am 
missing in school. It is so 
thrilling to see eager faced 
children filling the rows in 
Sabbath School and to notice 
students listening intently to 
worship in school. The people 
are beginning to accept us 
now in a more personal way 
and I have been allowed in 
some of the homes which is a 
privilege. Hello to my folks in

has made me realize more and 
more that by studying His life 
it helps us to grow spiritually. 
I encourage everyone to read 
the last few chapters and 
contemplate what a sacrifice 
He has made for each one of 
us. His love and patience in 
the midst of trials are a 
shining example for us.

Sometimes it gets a little 
discouraging working as a SM 
in Japan. It takes real love 
and care to share Jesus' love 
here. What do you think when 
you prepare for Bible class 
and no one comes? But yet 1 
trust in God's will and propose 
two things: (a) to work for 
God's glory and (b) to do the 
best I can to improve present 
opportunities for Jesus. I'm 
glad to be here. I really love 
these wonderful people.

Before summer camp we all 
prayed that the Lord would 
bless it in a special way and 
that we would be able to reach 
our students. He certainly 
answered our prayers. The 
students had a very meaning- 
ful time. Tim and I were in 
charge of the Level I students. 
At first we weren't sure if we 
would be able to reach them 
due to their lack of English 
comprehension. But we had a 
translator and by the end of 
the week each member of our 
group was praying {either in 
Japanese or English) that they 
would understand more about 
God and come to believe in 
Him. It was a moving time 
when each student prayed, i 
also had the experience of 
teaching the girls in my cabin 
how to pray. God is really 
using me and all the other 
SMs. I'm having a fantastic 
time! Now, most of the 
students who came to camp 
are regularly attending Bible 
classes. Please continue to 
pray for us. I miss all of you.

Kef lection Writing 

by Lance L. Marlln 

[changes occur frequently in 
At one moment, we 
were babies and the only way 
ever knew it were the 
J)iles of photos of us crawl- 
ing, climbing, and drinking 
Jbur bottles of milk, or in my 
■case, being bathed in the 
' titchen sink. (1 can never 
■remember being that small.) 
■ We remember the time we 
;went off to kindergarten and 
^First Grade, not realizing 
.'jthat the fear we felt would 
jionly last for a couple of hours 
[because we finally under- 
*stood that all of us were 
■scared together. 

We see the changes that 

occur over many years, and 
looking back, it is hard to 
believe that we're actually 
here in the present. But that 
present is never permanent; 
it slips by so fast that no 
clock could ever measure its 
time. All we have are our 
memories that we keep to 
cherish, like precious jewels 
in a treasure chest. 

I think it was probably 
meant to be that way. Our 
ideas and attitudes go 
through so many patterns, 

t lost ii 

a perpetual ball of confusion. 

Our thoughts vary so much. 

The other night I was 

talking to a friend after we 
had gotten back from a 
late-night bike ride. Doubt, 
or what I thought to be 
doubt, had crawled inside 
and I found myself wonder- 
ing if it were possible that 
the evolutionists were right. 
"Sometimes," I said. 
"When I say my prayers, it 
seems like no one is listen- 
ing. Like I feel there's 
someone out there, but He's 
just too far away." We 
pondered that for a while and 
then, as it always seems to. 
the mood changed and the 
subject was dropped. There 
were too many other things 

to think of; a couple of exams 
the next morning and then 
the trip home. 

The exams went by and so 
did the trip, that is until I hit 
the North Carolina moun- 
tains. Then I remembered 
the doubt that had been in 
my mind the night before. 
As I looked out the window of 
my car, the trees on the 
mountain top were no longer 
the dull shade of late sum- 
mer-green. They had 

I thought, as I drove, how 
ridiculous it would be for 
someone to think that some 
little cell could burst into 

brilliant shades of orange, 
red and yellow, and paint 
those trees. There was no 
way. Instead I knew that this 
was the work of a true Artist, 
someone who wanted to 
share the things He enjoys; 

not for profit, but because 
He's a good Friend and 
wants you to enjoy them too. 
The work of DaVinci or 
Wyeth could never match the 
work of this Artist, because 

he worked out of love. This 
Artist realized that changes 
make you think and appreci- 
ate life more.

Dear Comrade, 

If one would expect to love 
deeply, one must expect to 
suffer deeply. For without 
pain there is no growth, no 
strengthening, no expansion 
of the heart's capacity to 
love and be loved. 

Trust is the key that makes 
the process bearable. Trust 
always looks to the future; it 
is purest faith without sub- 
stance or evidence. "There 
is no fear in perfect love . .

Especially all of you on

September was a super busy 
month. We went bowling

was a trip to Japan Missionary

sides it was final test time and 
parties, but it was all great. 
SM Retreat started the 29th. 
We had a few hairy moments

almost missing our train. It

all sorts of spirits and ghosts, 
all of which had liberty on that 
night." To free themselves 
from this evil, the people were 
to set out food-give the 
demons a treat-and provide 
shelter for them for the night. 
If food and shelter were not 
provided, these demons would 
"trick" them by casting an 
evil spell. 

It was the Celts who chose 
October 31 as their New 
Year's Eve and had originally 
intended it to be a celebration 
of everything evil and dead. 
They would gather around a 
community bonfire and offer 
sacrifices such as their 
animals, crops, and even 

So why is Halloween 
accepted today, even in our 
school? Since the time of 
Constantine. Roman emporers 

realized the necessity to have 
a unified Empire. How could 
the church unite pagan and 
Christian? It was reasoned 
that if pagan practices ot 
festivals couldn't be for- 
bidden, let them be 

In A D. 800, the Catholic 
church established All Saints 
Day on November 1 so people 
could continue their same 
pagan practices, yet letting it 
appear to be a Christian 
Ellen White said that many ot 
the Catholic church's doc- 
trines cam from compromising 
with the pagan people for the 
sake of unity. In the Great 
Controversy, page 42, par. 2, 
she wrote: "Although the 
worshipers of idols professed 
to be converted, they still 
clung to their idolatry, only 

changing the objects of wor- 
ship to images of Jesus, and 
even Mary and the Saints, 
They foul leaven of idolatry, 
thus brought into the church, 
continued its baleful work. 
Unsound doctrines, super- 
stitious rites, and idolatrous 
ceremonies were incorporated 
into her (Catholic church) faith 
and worship." 

So how can Bible-believing 
Seventh-day Adventists have 
anything to do with this night 
of the devil? How can we 
approve of bringing praise 
upon Satan by dressing up as 
witches and other spirits? 
How can we enter in to his 
house, the "haunted house" 
without even giving a second 
thought of what we're doing? 
Many will say that we only do 
it in fun, what harm can it do? 
Well that's what Satan wants 

you to believe. There is 
nothing funny about Satan, or 
any of his angels. I'm sure he 
loves it when we take an 
attitude such as this. 

My question now turns to any 
faculty member or admini- 
strative personnel. How can 
this school, which treats 
theater attendance as the "un- 
pardonable sin" let Halloween 
parties continue. Which is 
worse, seeing a movie full of 
sex and violence, or dressing, 
up as an evil spirit and going 
into "haunted houses" giving 
praise to Satan? I challenge 
all to think upon this question

Southern Cynic 

In light of the latest hot issue 
_j campus, I'd like to express 
I my condolences to those fear- 
I less heatseekers of Talge Hall 
I who are mortally crushed by 
[the fact that the deans are 
I closing the sauna due to 
I finances. Because I too am a 
I lover of heavy sweat and 
I extreme discomfort, I have 
I prepared a few suggestions as 
I to how the men of Talge Hall 
raise $100,000 to save 

My first suggestion, although 
I it may be a tough one for some 
■ of the guys, is to stop feeding 
Ithe roaches. I know, I know, 
■some of you have developed 
■close relationships with many 
■of those cute little buggers, 
put think of your pores. 

Another big way to save 
money is to alleviate the movie 
stake-outs by the deans. Of 
, we all know that we've 

(^he students),stopped attend- 
ing the theatre, so why waste 
the money checking up on us? 
Still on the subject of the 
dean's budget, I propose cut- 
ting down their "lunch-out" 
day to three per week. And 
Deans, if you could discover 
someplace a little less expen- 
sive like Taco Bell, it would be 
cheaper and it doesn't turn 
into a bar after 7:00 p.m. 

I'm going to get into a touchy 
area for a minute. But you 
know, we fundraisers have to 
examine all the possible areas 
of income. Dean Qualley, 
you'd better sit down on this 
one. Are you sitting down? 
Okay, here goes. WE COULD 
ION! What do you mean, "No 
way"? Come on, I know it's 
only worth $40 or $50 dollars, 
but as Dean Evans said, 
"every little bit helps," Guys, 
he may take a little prodding. 

but I'm sure that when he 
recovers from the shock, he'll 
realize that a painting from 
Sears would look better on his 
wall anyway.) 

I have a great idea for saving 
15-25 thousand dollars. We 
all know that the men have 4 
deans because of the sports 
events, sooo -- why not cut out 
a couple of baseball tourna- 
ments and golf championships 
and therefore eliminate the 
need for extra deans. 

The next idea, my friends, is 
my most brilliant and exciting 
yet. And I know what you're 
saying, "you haven't mention- 
ed B-Wing yet." Well I 
haven't forgotten that illustri- 
ous legend and B-Wingers 
beware, my forth idea includ- 
es, yes, you! B-Wing is going 
to become^ a hot new tourist 
attraction in Chattanooga- 
second only to Ruby Falls and 

Rock City. I've placed adver- 
tisements in widely read and 
respected periodicals such as 
the "Collegedale Tidings" 
and "Pilgrims Waymarks".

Who was Martin Luther? 

Martin Luther was the man 
responsible for the beginning 
of the Protestant Reformation. 
Bom in the Saxon town in 
Eisleben on November 10, 
1483, he was the son of a 
self-made mining entrepre- 
neur, Hans Luther, who want- 
ed his son to become a lawyer. 
With this objective, the young 
Luther attended the Univer- 
sity of Erfurt in Saxony from 
1501-1505. However, he end- 
ed this period by devastating 
his father with his decision to 
enter the Augustinian monas- 
tery and become a monk. 

It was in the monastery that 
Luther began to move in the 
direction of the Reformation. 
As a monk he strove for 
personal spiritual satisfaction, 
but found none. Later he was 
to comment that if ever a 
monk was to be saved by 
monkery, he was that man, yet 
in this quest for religious 
attainment, he grew only more 
frustrated and actually came 
to hate God. 

I Students Have 
Week of Prayer 

The annual Student Week of 
Prayer will be held at South- 
I College the week of Nov- 
I ember 13. 

The purpose of the program 
IS to give the students a 
chance to tell their peers how 
God has worked in their lives 
and how God can help them. 

"There won't be an over-all 
j theme as such this year," 
J comments Les Mathewson, 
■ "It win be the students telling 

■about their own experience." 

The meetings will be held 
luring regularly scheduled 
Worships. The chapel service 
on Tuesday will be conducted 
jy Glenn McElroy and Thurs- 
day's wUI be Myron Mixon. 

The evening worships will be 
as follows: Monday may be 
canceled due to the reception; 
Tuesday, the Student Mis- 
sions Club will be having 
meetings in the separate 
dorms; Wednesday is the 
regular prayer meeting; 
Thursday, the Southemaires 
will be in Thatcher and South- 
em Bell Canto will be in 
Talge; and Les Mathewson 
will speak Friday night. The 
speakers for the morning wor- 
ships will be Pat Williams. 
Jim Hakes, Lonnie Kerbs, and 
Laronda Curtis. 

There will be no extra 
meetings that week and only 
the regular number of re- 
quired points will be needed. 

From this point of despair 
Luther began to tum in the 
direction of his future Protes- 
tantism. Following a visit to 
Rome, he began a long period 
of biblical study which culmin- 
ated with his denunciation of 
the entire religious system of 
the Middle Ages. During this 
so-called Tower Experience, 
Luther received a doctorate 
in theology and became a 
professor at the University of 
Wittenberg. In preparing his 
lectures he made the dis- 
covery that the system of 
religion supported by the 
church in his day lacked a true 
Biblical foundation. 

With this conviction Luther 
encountered the catalyst that 
would forever alter the Chris- 
tian church and his own 
position in it. In 1517 a 
Dominican friar by the name 
of Johann Tetzel arrived in the 
vicinity of Wittenberg with a 
promise of salvation to all who 
would buy his indulgence. 

Music - A Gift of God 

When you sing in church on 
Sabbath, thank Martin Luther. 
For nearly one thousand years 
prior to Luther's time, singing 
in the church service was done 
by professionals. The mem- 
bers of the congregation were 
primarily spectators. 

Luther, unlike the other 
reformers, believed music was 
a Gift of God to be used by 
man in praise of his Creator. 
Calvin, for example, tolerated 
psalm singing, but rejected 
anything that might be called 
"art music". Other reformers 
far as to destroy the 
n churches. But not 
. . his philosophy of 

J a Gift of God coupled 

with the idea of the priesthood 
of all believers, led directly to 
congregational involvement in 
the worship service. 

One of Luther's most 
significant contributions to the 
liturgy was to replace the 
portions of the Ordinary of the 
Mass which were sung by the 
choir, with congregational 

went SI 

hymns. Thus, the Latin Gloria 
was replaced with a vemacu- 
lar hymn, "Allein Gott in der 
Hoh sei Ehr", translated. "All 
Glory Be to God on High ' ' . 

Luther's reasoning was 
simply that if music is a Gift of 
God to be given back in praise 
to Him, and if all men can 
approach God directly, with- 
out a priest, then music is one 
of the best vehicles through 
which the congregation can 
approach God. He realized 
also that music served as a 
tremendous force in getting 
ideas across, and he did not 
hesitate to use it for teaching 

This may seem rather 
elementary to us today, since 
we have hymnals with hun- 
dreds of thousands of hymns 
in them. But such was not the 
case in Luther's day. He and 
his colleagues had to produce 
a whole new church musice 
which would be suitable for 
untrained musicians to sing. 

Repelled by such a mockery, 
of the gospel, Luther began to 
this specific indulgence but 
the entire papal system. 

By 1521 Luther found himself 
excommunicated as a heretic 
and outlawed by the imperial 
govemment. But he was also 
convinced that the church in 
his day must be reformed and 
restored to its original Biblical 

Martin Luther lived out his 
life as a university professor. 
His name was given to a new 
denomination, the Lutheran, 
yet he did not really found a 
church. What he did was to 
instigate a movement of mo- 
mentous religious significance 
which was soon broadened 
and carried on by others: 
Zwinglt. Calvin. Cranmer, to 
name but three. To a large 
extent the religious environ- 
ment which we take for grant- 
ed where a believer is free to 
practice his faith according to 
his own conscience, is attri- 
butable to Martin Luther. 

In so doing, Luther insisted on 
quality music. His tunes were 
drawn from four primary 
sources--familiar plainsong 
melodies, vernacular religious 
folk songs, secular folk songs, 
and newly composed melo- 
dies. The texts were newly 
written poems and poems 
based on scripture. 

Luther himself wrote thirty- 
seven hymns, which are found 
in volume fifty-three of the 
American Edition of Luther 
Works, subtitled "Liturgy andl 
Hymns". These hymns were 
the model for the type of hymn 
that came to be known as the 
German Chorale. 

Next Sabbath, sing praise to 
God, and give thanks for 
Martin Luther, whose reforms 
helped make corporate con- 
gregational expression pos-

Are we. as students of Southern. College, all comrades? I 
would like to be able to answer this questions with a "yes." 

We are all allied in the same struggle, college life. Then 
why. do so many of us take the first opportunity to make 
those around us look bad? Why is it so much fun to cut down 
someones clothes? Or. when we can get someone in trouble, 
why is it so rewarding to watch them squirm? If someone 
offends us. why do we have to retaliate in the brutal, 
unceasing manner? 

Most, would answer these questions with the fact that we 
want to make others look bad, so we can look a little better to 
others. But, in reality, if some self-searching is done, most 
of the time, we would have to admit that we don't look any

Dear Editor, 

Hey, I just got this great 
idea that should solve all the 
problems concerning this 
school's name. The thing to 
do is paint the sign out front 
totally white, then paint a big 
UPC symbol on it and the 
word "college" in small-case, 
black, block letters. You know 
what we'd have then? A 
generic college! Think of the 
possibilities-since there is no 
brand name, prices could be 
lowered. The school itself 

would save money because it 
wouldn't need pre-printed sta- 
tionary, envelopes or such--in- 
stead. each faculty member 
could be supplied with a box of 
K-Mart "White Wove" envel- 
opes and a stamp imprinted 
with the word "college." 

Graduates, too, would bene- 
fit from such a name. Since 
diplomas would bear only the 
name "college," graduating 
students could increase their 
clout by merely penciling in 
"Dartmouth" or something 

simUar above the name. The 
possibilities are endless! We 
could start a nation-wide 
trend. All the students could 
dress up like McKee Workers 
{with the word "Student" 
stenciled on the back of each 
shirt). The Campus Shop 
could be renamed "Store." 
And the Southern Accent 
would be called "The Paper." 
Wouldn't that be fun.

Dear Editor, 

I would like to address a 
conflict that has cropped up on 
campus recently. The conflict 
has to do with concerts that 
are banned and the concerts 
that are advertised by our 
administration. How is it, that 
we can be told that a group 
like The Police (a reggae- 
based group) is not in line with

I ask why, I find out that a 
group of uninformed people 
are making decisions for me. 
If it is the atmosphere at a 
concert that is so disturbing, 
then they need to ban not only 
a so called "Rock Concert", 
but Soul Concerts, and 
Country & Western Concerts 
because there is the same 
atmosphere at all of them. 
Would a Stevie Wonder or 
Alabama concert be banned? 
Obviously not, since the Gap 

Band concert and Kenny 
Rogers concert were not ban- 
ned. These concerts were in 
our own backyard, but yet 
there was no policy on them. 
No, we go out to Knoxville to 
ban what was not only a 
concert, but an event. I am 
wondering who has the right 
to ban another human beings 
musical taste. If our admini- 
stration plans on making more 
and more of our decisions for 
us, then they had better be 
ready for more and more 
complaining, because they are 
not stepping on everyone s 
toes. If they are going to ban 
the Police in Knoxville. then

There seems to be a gray 
area between what the 
administration feels are its 
rights, and what the students 
feel are their rights. The 
students have made conces- 
sions i.e., T.V.. required 
attendance of Sabbath School 
and Church, and being locked 

in nightly. So, how about 
letting the individual chose 
what music he likes and let 
them chose to see that person 
or group if they so desire. As

are not disobeyed. If we don't 
make any of our decisions 
today, then how can we be

Blood Assurance Comes Again 

On November 15 and 16, 
from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. 
Blood Assurance will be mak- 
ing its second appearance this 
year asking for blood donors. 

Blood Assurance is asking 
that students be at least 
seventeen years of age and 
weigh at least 110 pounds. 
Donors should be in good 
health, free from colds, and 
never had hepatitis. If you've 
been in a country within the 
past 3 years where malaria is 
very present, it has been 
asked that you not donate at 
this time. 

Blood Assurance is a 
volunteer organizational ser- 

vice that serves eastern Ten- 
nessee and northern Georgia 
by providing blood to area 
hospitals. One of the best 
benefits from giving blood to 
this organization is that your 
parents will be covered for one 
year with free blood. 

Collegiate Adventists for 
Better Living (CABL) is spon- 
soring this blood-donating 
program here on campus. 
T-shiris and free refreshments 
will be given to all contribut 
ing donors. 

Faculty and staff, as well as 
students, are urged to donate 
if at all possible. 

Women of SC Calendar In the Planning 

"We're going to sell as much 
sex as is reasonable." stated 
Mark Newmeyer. "It's just an 



hoping it will sell well and 
make a profit for the SA." 

Newmeyer is talking about 
The Women of SC Calendar 
that should be out for sale 
around December 15. It will 
be a 12 month calendar, 
beginning with January 1984, 
and will depict 12 of the 
best women who attend 
Southern College. The only 
other requirement for the girls 
is that they cannot be engaged 
or married: however, even 
dating seriously will not 
eliminate a girl from the

Christmas Tree To Be 

hi E.O. 

After checking the height and 
condition of the tree that has 
been planted in the mall in 
front of Wright Hall, it has 
been decided that our cords 
and lights are too heavy for 
this young tree. Accordingly a 
taller tree will be set in the 
concrete-lined hole directly 
behind this living tree, as was 
done last year. 

)men have been 
secret all-male 
committee and their names 
will be kept quiet until the 
published calendar is pre- 
sented to the students for sale. 
According to Mark 
Newmeyer, the photographer 
for the project, several poses 
of each "pin-up" will be taken 
and the best photo will be 
used in the calendar. Should 
one month's subject decline 
the "honor", the committee 
will choose another from their 

Glenn McElroy. SA 
President, said that the idea 
had been tossed around last 
year by the SA officers, but 
the idea came too late to really 
get anything done. While it is 
true that La Sierra has one 
with their best women and one 
with their best men, very few 
students here have seen one. 
The "pin-up" calendar will 
not be an academic calendar, 
nor is it sponsored by the 
administration. It is totally 
the responsibility of the SA 
and they will fund it. Accord- 
ing to McElroy, it is totally a 
money-making project. "You 
must invest money to make 
money." McElroy claimed. 
"We hope to make $1700.00 
on this investment, and that is 
only by selling 1000 

Newmeyer will also be in 
charge of the layout and 
graphicsof the experiment. It 
is still termed an "experi- 
ment" because the success or 
failure of this project will be 
the deciding factor towards 
another one next year, and 
possibly a Men of SC Calendar 
for the women students. 

"We're rushing to get 
everything finished so that we 
can meet our deadline," spoke 

Newmyer. "We have asked 
Dean Schlisner to be an 
unofficial advisor for the 
calendar." However, this is 
not to make the students 
blame him for anything. If 
there are any complaints, the 
SA takes full responsibility for 
the calendar and the pictures. 
According to Newmeyer. "we 
hope there will be a few swim 
suit shots" but at this point 
the only certainties are the 
girls themselves, and they 
don't even know yet. How- 
ever, because of the time 
factor, pictures will have to be 
taken in the next two weeks so 
each "month" should know 
pretty soon if she has been 
chosen for the first calendar of 
its type at Southern College. 

The calendars will probably 
sell for at least $3.00 a piece, 
maybe more. Another student 
heavily involved in the project 
is Greg Culpepper. He will be 
in charge of the marketing and 
promotion. According to costs 
and prices, if 500 calendars 
are sold for $3.00 each, the 
initial investment will be 
repaid. Any more calendars 
sold will be simply profit for 
the SA.

In all probability a new ' 
system of cords and lights will 
have to be selected for use 
with the living tree. It may be 
that some of the adjacent 
trees and bushes will be 
decorated also. One idea is to 
use an "expandable" pole 
with a star on top. As the tree 
grows taller each year, the 
pole supporting the star can 
be extended. The electric 
wires that are presently in use 
are much too thick and heavy 
(in a word, obsolete) and 
would definitely wear down 
and break the branches of any 
living tree. In any case we will

various capacities since 1968, 
and the last seven of those as 
its president. In his speech to 
the faculty. Smoot maintained 
that he would be vindicated of 
the charges held against him 
concerning the incident in 
Silver Spring, MD earlier in 
October. He also stated that

Smoot is a professor of 
history and has held the 
position of Dean of the School 
of Graduate Studies as well as 
Vice President for Academic 
Administration in his years at 
Andrews. He is only the third 
president to serve the school 
since it became a university in 
1960; however, he is the 19th 
president since the founding 
of the institution in Battle 
Creek in 1874. 

Smoot is a graduate of 
Southern College, from the 
class of 1955. He has since 
completed two graduate 
degrees in history at the 
University of Kentucky in 
Lexington; a master of arts in 
1958 and Ph.D. in 1964. 
Before going to Andrews in 
'68, Smoot taught at Columbia 
Union College as an associate 
professor of history and also 
served as CUC's Academic 
Dean for three years.

Southern Cynic 

Recently, I have bi 
involved in some rather 
significant scientific discover- 
ies that affect everyone on 
campus and perhaps all of 
mankind. Let me back up and 
k A few weeks ago I was 
I studying in the lobby of the 
I dorm during the wee hours of 
I the morning. I was soon 
I joined by a buddy, carrying a 
large load of books. 
"Test tomorrow?" I asked as 
I he settled down for what 
I appeared would be a lengthy 
I stay. 

"Worse," he grimly replied. 

"My roommate's got gas." 

"Mine too." I said. 

"1 warned him not to eat the 

I lasagna. ' ' my friend said . 

I "It's not the lasagna, ' ' I 

I countered. "The culprit is the 

■ broccoli." 

I We heatedly debated this 
; for awhile until we were 
Ijoined by another guy who 
Iwalked in sleepily with a 

■ blanket and flaked out on a 
I couch and shut his eyes. 

Roommate got gas? 
friend shot at him. The guy 
jolted upright, wide awake, 
with a look of amazement on 
his face. "How did you 

"Just an educated guess," 
my friend told him. "We too 
are a couple of virtual 
refugees." he added. 

"We're having a little 
argument here." I said, point- 
ing to my friend. "He thinks 
we have the lasagna to blame 
and I say it's the broccoli. 
What do you think?" 

The newcomer looked pen- 
sive. "I can't honestly answer 
that. I'm not sure what Mr. 
St. Helens had for lunch." 

"For the sake of the debate, 
would you run and ask him? ' ' I 

"No way. You're really 
gross!" the guy said. "But I 
will call him." 

When the fellow returned 
from the phone we sat down 
and went over the facts. After 
several minutes, we concluded 
that a combination of lasagna 
and broccoli, together, caused 

gas. However, in all fairness, 
we decided not to pass judge- 
ment (or anything else) until 
we had more data. It was 
decided that each of us would 
conduct on opinion poll and 
see if others agreed with our 

I began mine the next day 
while waiting in the lunch line. 

Realizing that most people 
wouldn't take me seriously, 1 
tried to maintain a solemn and 
dignified air. (No pun 

I questioned several people 
standing in line. Many 
laughed and wisecracked, 
others ignored me. but a few 
said that they had indeed 
discovered that a combination 
of lasagna and broccoli caused 
gastric disturbances. 

Needing a few more 
opinions. I wandered into the 
cafeteria. My eyes fell on my 
dream girl, an absolutely 
gorgeous creature that I had 
been dying to meet for some 

What the hey, I thought. It 
would probably be a great 

icebreaker. 1 walked over and 
sat down across from her. She 
smiled sweetly. 
"Ah, ah, do ah. do you think 
that eating ah, er ah lasagna 
together with broccoli causes 
ah, ah gas?" I haltingly asked 

"Do I think WHAT?" She 
looked dazed. I repeated my 
inquiry. "Listen creep, take 
off." she said as the smile 
slipped from her face. 

I got up and stomped out of 
the cafeteria. "That's just 
fine with me." I consoled 
myself, "she can just find out 
the hard way." 

On the way out of the 
building I met my dream girl's 
roommate heading for lunch. 

Feeling vendictive I said to 
her, "Be sure and take the 
lasagna and broccoli, they're 
both really good today." 
"Why thank you for the tip," 
she earnestly replied. "Don't 
mention it." I mumbled, 
already feeling a bit quilty. 
The last part of our survey we 
decided needed to be 

scientific. So we presented 
our findings to a mutual friend 
of ours, who's a Chemistry 
major. He listened to our 
theory and told us he'd get 
back to us after some 

Several days later he called 
us into Hackman. All he did 
was point to a blackboard 
covered with all sorts of 
calculations and scribblings. 
At the bottom, underlined in

formula: Las + Broc2 = gas.

screamed when he read it. "I

Always cautious, I asked our

Thanksgiving is always a special time at our house. Our 
relatives are too far away to get togetftr for thisoccasion, so 
we used to invite some friends over and make a big day out trf 

It became a tradition. We always planned on it and we 
always had a good time. We still do, even though we've 
moved and can't have the same friends over for 
TTianksgiving dinner. 

There were always lots of things to be thankful for; and 
there still are. Many are the same ones we've always been 
thankful, such as food, clothes, famiv. and friends. 

New ones include new friends.books, a job, and of course, 
graduation in May. Your list may be totaDy different from 
mine, but we can all honestly say that there is something to 
be thankful for.

Dear Editor, 

As an avid sauna user, I read 
with great dismay of the plans 
to close the Talge Hall sauna. 
A $6,000 electric bill for the 
sauna is quite a large expense, 
I agree, and I would like to 
suggest some alternative 
ideas to help correct the 

One idea would be to make 
the sauna available to That- 
cher, as well as Talge resi- 
dents. A small user-fee (.25 or 
.50) cou Id be implemented 
which would generate funds to 
help offset the cost of the 
electricity. If this idea be- 
comes popular, it is quite 
possible that the sauna could 

be operated with a profit. 

If this idea is not feasible, 
certain methods may be im- 
plemented to curtail the 
amount of electricity used in 
the operation of the sauna. 
The sauna is large enough to 
hold 10-15 people , and by 
operating the sauna only dur- 
ing specific hours, 8-12 p.m., 
would prevent injudicious use 
by a smaller group of people 
maximizing it's cost effective- 

The sauna is now operated by 
manually turning a switch on 
and off. A common occur- 
rence is that the last person 
out of the sauna forgets to turn 
the switch off. The sauna then 

runs throughout the night. 
The installation of an inexpen- 
sive timing device would cor- 
rect this problem and conserve 
precious energy and money by 
automatically turning the 
sauna off. 

The use of drugs and alcohol 
in today's society has become 
more and more prevalent a 
means of relaxation. The use 
of the sauna is a healthy 
alternative and by using one of 
these suggested ideas, the 
closing of the sauna can be 

James Gershon 

Dear Editor. 

I read the article in the 
November 10, 1983 Southern 
Accent pertaining to the 
"Women of SC" calendar 
with no small amount of 
interest. To say the least. I 
was quite shocked. After 
considering the proposal for 
some time, I would now like to 
state my total opposition to 

this project for the following 
reasons : 

1) In the very first sentence 
we have a quote saying: 
"We're going to sell as much 
sex as reasonable." In my 
opinion, the selling, i.e. ex- 
ploitation, of sex is never 
reasonable, no matter what 
the form. This action flies 
directly in the face of the basic 

Christian principles of the 
SDA church on which this 
school was founded. 
2) In this day and age, I find it 
reprehensible that any publi- 
cation bearing the name 
"Southern College" would 
consider treating either sex as 
mere "pin-up's" rather than 
as intelligent individuals seek-

Kefledion Writing 

I remember it well. I had 
just finished working in the 
fields for the day and was 
ready to leave. My life was 
fading and I felt so alone. 
The nearest young lady was 
a full day's drive away. 

My father was studying his 
Sabbath School lesson in his 
room. I was anxious. I had 
to leave soon. I wanted to 
run to him and hold him, but 
I just didn't care anymore. 
He pointed to a small wood- 
en chair in the corner of the 
room. I sat down. 

"Father, there's a world 
out there with so much to see 
and so much to learn. I want 
to start a life for myself. If 

you'll just give me what is 
mine, and your blessing, I'll 
be on my way. But, even if 
you don't bless my journey. 
I'll go anyway. " 

"Son, I've always tried to 
do my best for you and have 
given you my love, but if you 
must leave home, leave with 
the blessing of God." 
A few days later, I was well 
into my travels when I met 
a man who didn't have much 
to say, but he did give me a 
few glimpses of city life and 
about some of the women he 
had met. 

I asked him, "Isn't that 

He just smiled and said. 

"No, it isn't that bad." 
A few days later we were in 
the city, laughing and meet- 
ing many nice women. The 
night life and good times 
kept me busy for several 
months, even years. I forget 
how long it really was. My 
father had given me a lot of 
money, but it finally ran out, 
along with my "friends". 

Then a famine hit and 
starvation was everywhere. 
There wasn't a job to be 
found. I walked the streets 
and competed with beggars 
for my food. I finally found a 
job feeding pigs. I wasn't 
treated too kindly, and 1 had 
to sleep in the bam. The 

bread I ate was old and hard. 
It wasn' t long before 1 
began dreaming of home. 

"The servants there are 
treated much better than 
this. I will go home and ask 
my father if he'll take me on 
as a servant, because I am 
no longer worthy to be in his 
family," Ithought. 

It didn't take too long to 
pack my things. I left with 
what I wore, which by this 
time was merely rags. 
While on the road, I prayed 
that I still had a home. 

I was almost there. I could 
see the house. My father 
just stood by the front door 
and stared. Then he ran 

"Father, I've sinned; 
heaven's ashamed. I'm no 
longer worthy to be in your 
family. I've learned that my 
home is where you are. Oh, 
father, please take me back, 

"Bring the best clothes and 
put them on my son. Put 
shoes on his feet. This is my 
son whom I'd thought had 
died! Prepare a feast. My 
son is alive! My son was 
dead, now he's alive! My

SA Senator, Precinct #4 


Dear Editor, 

I'm not really writing this 
letter in reply to anyone in 
particular, but fi-om reading 
past letters I get a funny 
feeling that there are a num- 
ber of students here that are 
dissatisfied with some of the 
policies set forth by this 

All sarcasm aside, I'd like to 
share a few things that have 
helped me to understand the 
wh\ s of SC policy. 

Mc justly requires obedience 
i<-< His laws and to all wise 
regulations which will restrain 
and guard the youth from 
Saian s devices and lead them 
i'l paths of peace. If the youth 
could see that in complying 
vviV/j the laws and regulations 
of our institutions, they are 
only doing that which will 
improve their standing in soci- 
^0'. elevate the character, 
enable the mind, and increase 
their happiness, they would 
not rebel qgainst just rules 
end wholesome requirements, 
nor engage in creating suspi- 
cion and prejudice against 

these institutions. A religious 
experience is gained only 
through conflict, through dis- 
appointment, through severe 
discipline of self and through 
earnest prayer. " 

"Some may urge that if 
religious teaching is to be 
made prominent, our school 
will become unpopular. Very 

were determined to have their 
own will and their own way, it 
would be better for them to 
return to their hom es . . ." 

And finally: "Upon Christian 
youth depend in a great 
measure the preservation and 
perpetuity of the institutions 
which God has devised as a 
means by which to advance 

the counsel given by Mn 
White? and then? 

Rules, regulations, and somebody 
counsel aside, why can't we that's doings 
nething positive about 

well, then let them go to other His work. Ne\'er was there c 
colleges, where they will find period when results so impor- 

a system of education that 
suits their taste. " 

"There were those who 
thought the restraint too se- 
vere: but we told them plainly 
what could be and what could 
not be, showing them that our 
schools are established at 
great expense for a definite 
purpose, and that all which 
would hinder the accomplish- 
ment of this purpose must be 
put away. 

"I told them that if they did 
not . . . endeavor to make the 
most of their time, the school 
would not benefit them, and 
those who were saying their 
expenses would be disappoint- 
ed. I told them that if they 

■ depended upon a genera- 
tion of men. " All quotes were 
taken from Counsels to Par- 
ents, Teachers, and Students: 
E. G. White. 

Mrs. White seems to be 
saying that the future of this 
school is dependent on not so 
much the staff of the school, 
but on us, the student body. 
Let's cut the policy-makers 
some slack and realize that 
though conditions 
what different today than 
when most of them grew up 
(that is, worse). They've been 
there and know the ropes. 
Why can't we listen to them 
and learn from their mistakes? 
And how can we argue with

Congregation to Participate in Thanksgiving 

Church Service by jerry KovalsM 

A special Thanksgiving 
church service is going to be 
held in the CoUegedale church 
this Saturday, November 19. 

"This year is going to be 
similar to last year's service," 
says Elder Gordan Bietz, pas- 
tor of the church, "except that 
this year there is going to be 
more congregation participa- 
tion." This is going to be in 
the form of responsive read- 

One of the things that makes 
the service special is that the 
congreagation members will 
have brought groceries with 
them and will, at a point in the 
service, come forward and 

place them in the front of the 

"We encourage the students 
to participate by bringing 
some non-parishable food 
items to give." says Bietz. 
The food will be distributed to 
needy families on Thanks- 
giving day. 

The last part of the church 
service is going to be n 
writing. Every member 
going to write a note to 
another church member 
thanking them for some thing 
they did during the last year. 
These notes will then be 
picked up and distributed by 
the church during the next 

The battle of the network 
wars is declared again Nov. 
20-26"this time, the results 
will be nuclear distruction. 

Not literally, of course. Only 
ABC's controversial special, 
"The Day After." involves the 
story of nuclear aftermath in 
America. THe movie wUl have 
some competition, airing Nov. 
20 opposite NBC's first night 
of the "Kennedy" 
and CBS' regular lineup. 

ABC executives consider the 
movie to be completely non- 
partisan, emphasizing its role 
as a public service menat to 
inspire nations to avoid 
nuclear conflict. It's interest- 
ing to note, howevo-, that the 
airing is less than two weeks 
before U.S. Pershing lis are 
due to be installed in West 

Viewers will find "The Day 
After" to be a realistic view of 
the hixror facing nuclear war 
victims, although the actual 
storyline mj^ be considered 

The subject mater of the film 
has made it challenging for 
ABC advertising executives. 
Let's face it, the average 
American food or soft-drink 
commercial doesn't exactly 
compliment a movie 
emphasizing the personal, 
devastating effects of nuclear 
war. Nevertheless, ABC 
expects to have an advertising 
sell-out for the special. 

"The Day After," which cost 
about $7 million in produciton. 
w ill be followed by a live 
"Viewpoint" panel hosted by 
Ted Koppel from 10:15 to 
11:15 p.m., sort of an 
emotional safety-valve after 
the movie. 

It wUl be interesting to see 
whether the results of the

'lans For Christmas Tree Change 

- Grundsei 

J Since the puDiication of the 

Irticle detailing the plans for 

e campus Christmas tree in 

week's Accent, some 

Eiigh-level" decisions were 

iached and it has now been 

■ecided to go ahead and use 

"living tree," wHch is 

;ady in place (obviously). 

,ft- lighter weight (and safer) 

brds and bulbs will be pur- 

Biased and even though the 

is a little smaller, the 

can be arranged more 

ively and the overall 

ftjpact will be quite brilliant. ■ 

J[n addition, the old strings of 
Bghts will be used to outline 

the bushes and shrubbery in 
the vicinity of the tree so the 
display in the mall will be very 
attractive. The windows in 
Wright Hall (facing the mall) 
will have sets of candles 
(electric) in them, thus pro- 
viding a lighted background. 
Also, we are encouraging all 
the occupants who live in 
Talge and Thatcher Halls, 
whose rooms face the mall, 
(front of buildings) to try and 
outline their windows with 
lights or even set a small 
lighted tree in the windows 
(or whatever). The entire mall 
will present a stunning view. 
One item that will be missing 
from the tree is a star. These 

were not readUy available 
commercially, so one v^Ul need 
to be constructed and wired 
for use next year. At any rate, 
everything should be in 
readiness for this year's Tree 
Lighting scheduled for Tues- 
day evening, November 29 at 
7:00 p.m. At that time the 
Brass Ensemble, under the 
direction of Pat Silver, will 
perform, as will Die Meister- 
singer, directed by Dr. Marvin 
Robertson. Santa Claus will 
arrive on cue and light the tree 
and refreshments will then be 
served. So, once again, it will 
be Christmas-time at Southern

In the midst of all the uproar 
concerning the "■Women of SC 
Calendar, it seems that every- 
one is accusing everyone else 
of being responsible for the 
"lack of judgement". It is 
extremely unfortunate, how- 
ever, that The Southern Ac- 
ccent has been used as a 
convenient scapegoat by our 
SA President and others that 
are involved. To make the 
Accent take the blame for this 
incident is like shooting a 
messenger that brings bad 
news. The Southern Accent 
did not originate the calendar. 
They were covering campus 
news as it developed. 

Those people who are calling 
for strict censorship of the 
school paper and a limiting of 
the scope of coverage are 
forgetting the paper's pur- 
pose. The Southern Accent 
was not designed as a P.R. 
paper -- that is the Southern 
Column's function. The Ac- 
cent's function is to cover the 
news and issues on campus -- 

including controversial sub- 

The staff of The Southern 
Accent deserves a show of 
confidence for their hard work 

this year in covering the news 
on campus. They have done a 
good job.

If you're like me, you spent a 
couple of hours watching tele- 
vision two Sunday nights ago. 
More specifically, you pro- 
bably viewed the movie entit- 
led "The Day After." 

Upon it's conclusion, I sat 
there stunned at what had 
been portrayed. Questions 
flooded my mind: Could this 
really happen? Which one of 
these people would I end up 
like? How could I survive a 
nuclear attack like that? 
Depression set in as the 
hopelessness of the situation 

became apparent. It occurred 
to me that our world is just a 
nuclear time-bomb waiting to 

When it looked as if there 
was no hope in this world, a 
light dawned in my troubled 
mind. No, it wasn't a Bible 
text or a quote from Ellen 
White. Instead, it was some- 
thing I had learned in my 
academy physics class. 

To make a nuclear bomb, a 
radio-active substance is form- 
ed into the shape of a horse- 
shoe. This substance is no 

larger than the size of a 
basketball. To make the bomb 
detonate, an explosive is 
rammed into this horseshoe- 
shaped material and upon 
impact, the material has a 
nuclear reaction and the mass 
of the substance becomes 
energy. That is the key Mass 
becomes energy. And this 
energy was the power that 
destroyed cities and people in 

At the creation of this earth, 
God took His power and 
energy and turned it into this 
sphere where 






become energy then the ( 
verse is true, energy 
become mass. 

basketball can make the power 
of a nuclear bomb in the 
movie, just imagine the power 
a mass would have if it were 
the size of the earth. That is 
how much energy God used to 
create this world. Powerful? I 
call it omnipotent, for He only 
had to speak and it was done. 
Surely a God with this much 
power can protect His children 

from any nuclear attack. Our 
God is in control! 

With this same power God is 
holding back the troublesome 
times spoken about in pro- 
phecy. When he withdraws 
this power, there will be more 
trouble than any movie could 
depict. But as long as we have 
ourselves connected to the 
Source of all power, we will be 
able to stand strong in that 
time of trouble. And with 
calm assurance, we can know 
for sure where we'll be on 

"the day after."

Sauder Returns to SC as PR Director 

When Mrs. Vinita Sauder 
was asked why she came to 
Southern College, she replied 

ery simply, "1 love the 

Mrs. Sauder, the new Public 
Relations Director for the col- 
lege, graduated from here in 
1978 with a degree in Com- 
munications/Journalism, so 
she is no stranger to SC. 

Mrs. Sauder and her hus- 
band Greg, a student, came to 
SC from the Kettering Medi- 
cal Center in Ohio, where 
Mrs. Sauder worked for three 
and one half years in the 

public relations department, 
when the Southern College 
Search Committee approached 
her, asking her to come to SC 
and direct the public relations 
here, she accepted, recalling 
her own college experiences. 

Becoming an Adventist at the 
age of fifteen led to attend- 
ance at Forest Lake Academy. 
After graduation from FLA, 
Mrs. Sauder came to 

"I was even /4ccenr editor my 
senior year," she said in her 
quiet voice. "Some of the 
most fun times of my life were 

spent here at this school." 

One of the first jobs Mrs. 
Sauder had here at SC was 
setting up the new public 
relations office. The depart- 
ment, at one time part of the 
Public Relations and Alumni 
office, is now a separate entity 
in a new,office of the first floor 
of Wright Hall. Mrs. Sander's 
position also puts here in 
charge of media relations, 
advertisements for the col- 
lege, and other types of pro- 
motions, along with the devel- 
opment of a corporate image 
for the school. Judging by the 

large number of various a- 
wards and trophies that ap- 
pear in her office, no one could 
be better fitted for the job. 

When asked how long she 
would stay here at Southern, 
Mrs. Sauder smiled and said. 
"It would be nice to never 
move again." She admitted 

that she would at least like to 
be here for 3-5 years, stating 
that the countryside was very 
"Greg and I like to go caving, 
camping, hiking-things of 
that nature. This area is 
excellent for that. And as I've 
said, 1 love the college."

The event began by featuring

including such favorites as 
God Rest Ye Merry Gentle- 
men and Jingle Bells. They 
were then followed by the Die 
Miestersingers who sang 
several numbers, and featured 
Bob Jimenez in a solo. 
After lots of music, Santa

From The President 

Death is ike veil which those 
who live call life; They sleep, 
and it is lifted ..." 

The tragedy that we have 
suffered this last week in the 
loss of a fellow student 
brought to mind these tines 
written by the poet Shelley. It 
took reading those lines many 
many times for me to grasp 
the enormity of their meaning. 


I understood, I 

never forgot. This life, 
Shelley is saying-the life that 
seems so alive and precious to 
US-is really blocking our 
vision. After such a brief 
sleep the veil will be lifted and 
we will see an unimagined 
magnificence that by com- 
parison our present life will 
seem like temporary death. 

Eighteen centuries before 
Shelley wrote his poetry, St, 
Paul expressed virtually the 

same idea; 

through a g! 
then . . ." 

"Now we see 
ss, darkly; but 

What excitement, what hope, 
what promise in those two 
simple words: but then! But 
then--our eternal life with you, 
dear God! Our thoughts and 
prayers are with the family of 
Richard Futch.

Phone Company Visits Senate 

bills at (he 5th Senate 

The Student Association 
Senate held its fifth regular 
meeting on Monday Novem 
ber 28 The meetmg began 
late but was called to order by 
SA Vice President J T Shim 
followed by the roll call by SA 
Secretary Tammy Schlisner 
A short devotional was pre 
sented by Senator Donald 

The agenda for the meeting 
involved reports on the new 
water fountain to be place 
near the tennis courts and 
track The Southern Accent 
the latest news on the Women 
of SC Calendar, the Village 
Market, and a presentation by 
the Collegedale/Ooltewah 
Telephone Company. 
Art Barnes, part owner and 
manager of the Chickamauga 
Telephone Corporation and 
Collegedale/Ooltewah Tele- 
phone Company along with 
Assistant Manager Dave At- 
kins, gave a presentation on 
the new "Cellular Radio Tele- 
phone", followed by a discus- 
sion on the soon-to-be re- 
leased telephone. This new 
telephone is similiar to the 
cable and wire phones, only 
there is no dialing 

This new device is small 
enough to be carried in a coat 
pocket, purse, or can be used 
in cars and trucks. According 
to Atkins, "with cellular radio 
telephones, a channel is al- 
ways open and there is never a 
busy signal". 

Already, in Chicago areas, 
the cellular telephone is being 
used by several thousand bus- 
inesses. But it will be another 
two years before this new 
system will be released to the 
general public in this area. 

Another important issue 
addressed to Barnes and At- 
kins was the problem of 
telephone service to the col- 
lege and the problem of not 
enough pay phones. 

It was stated that "there are 
several pay phones not in 
working order in the men's 
residence on various floors". 
With only one phone working, 
there is often a long line of 
men waiting to use that one 
phone. Asked why there are 
not enough pay phones avail- 
able, Atkins said, "According 
to the college administration, 
many of the phones are, or 
were taken out due to their not 
being used enough to offset 

by Shirley Hopkins 

A lot of students now have 
credit cards and make more 
long distance calls than local 
calls. Therefore, a suggestion 
was made that maybe if one or 
two of the blue credit card 
phones were installed in place 
of regular pay phones, the 
problem of waiting to get a 
phone could be solved. Barnes 
stated that he would look into 
the possibility of following the 

Mark Newmyer gave a final 
report on what was to be the 
real purpose of the Women of 
SC Calendar. The calendar 
was "to be done in a tasteful 
rfianner, and would have up- 
lifted school spirit". The 
calendar would have been 
similiar to the 1983-1984 A- 
cademic Calendar designed by 
himself, said Newmyer. Due 
to some misunderstandings 
and wrong impressions, it has 
now been abandoned, and is 
no longer in operation. 

According to Jeff Coston, 
the final report on the water 
fountain is that is has been 
purchased, and will soon be 
installed somewhere between 
the tennis courts and the track 
for all the thirsty players and

The Volleyball season got 
under way this week with 
Craig Calhoun's team prevail- 
ing over Fred Roscher's team 
15-12. 15-12. and 15-2. 

In Calhoun's first victory, his 
team had scoring strings of 
five, five, and four on the 
strength of a balanced attack. 
Heads-up play by Jon Schef- 
fel, Darla Jarrett. and occa- 
sional slam plays by Bruce 
Gibbon helped cool off a 
last-gasp rally by Roscher 
before clinching the win. 

In the second game. Roscher, 
with the help fo teammates 
Steve Carison and Vito Monti- 
perto, reeled off seven 
straight points, seemingly to 
roll to victory. But Calhoun 
crept back once again on the 
strengths of Jarrett and Gib- 
bon to tie the score. Roscher 
managed to score one point 
before Calhoun strung togeth- 
er four points to put the game 
out of reach. 

The third game went quickly 
and convincingly with Calhoun 
picking up the four point 
possible with a 15-2 smash. 
Roscher gained no points on 
the evening. 

Hartle's vicious slam plays 
are hard to stop and can 
intimidate opposing teams. In 
their first game, won 15-5, 
Hartle was helped by Carla 
Kamieneski's fine play and 
Bob Kamieneski's set-ups of 
Hartle slams. Hartle's team 
scored the first six points and 
also the last six points of the 

Hartle's 15-8 second game 
victory looked much like an 
instant replay of the first. 
Hartle has a very balanced 
team and it will take a very 
good team to shut them down. 
Hartle's team gained their 
fourth point of the evening by 
beating Loretta Messer's team 
in the third game, 15-6. 

In "B" League action, Laura 
Martin's team narrowly edged 
Hubbard by a combined six 
points in their three games. 
Hubbard forced a duece in the 
first game, which went to 
Martin 16-14. Games two and 
three were each decided by 
15-13 scores and won by 
Martin, who gained the 

Lance Martin's team, how- 
ever, didn't have much suc- 

cess with Larry Johnson's 
team. Lance's team put up a 
good fight in games two and 
three after losing the first 
game 15-2. After being down 
by six points. Martin's team 
came back to take the lead. 
Bad breaks and good plays by 
Johnson's Glenn King beat 
them in the end. 15-10. 

Martin put up their toughest 
battle in the final game. 
Stirred on by Lance's "Rah, 
rah, rah; let's go get 'emi" 
attitude, his team reeled off 
scoring strings of three and 
four points before Johnson's 
team got the better of them. 
In losing this game 16-14, 
Martin's team proved one 
thing: they are a team who 
comes out to enjoy themselves 
and give 100% each game. 
This bunch is definitly fun to

Dear Editor, 

1 would feel safe in saying 
that all the teachers here at SC 
have been in school longer 
than most, if not all, of the 
students enrolled. Assuming 
this is true, one would think 
that, from experience, teach- 
ers would realize that lectures 
tend to be boring enough in 
and of themselves, though 
necessary. But lectures in 
combination with over-heated 
classrooms provide a one-t\vo 
punch whose end result is 
often sleep. This is bad news 
for the college student striving 
to make the grade while 
staying up late at night study- 
ing and rising early in the 
morning to study some more. 

I personally desire to gain 
something other than rest 
from my classroom experi- 
ence. Not always rested and 
refreshed when going to class, 
1 find sleep knocking at the 
door when I come in from the 
; morning cold into the 
; indoor heat. It's one 
thing to maintain a reasonably 
comfortable indoor climate but 

quite another to make it feel 
like July in Daniel's Hall. 

I would suggest that the 
teachers co-ordinate their ef- 
forts to conduct interesting 
class periods with those of 
Engineering to maintain a 
reasonable temperature in the 
classrooms. There are class- 
rooms that, on the other 
extreme, are too cold, and 1 
think these should be taken 
care of also. But the over- 
heated classrooms are the 
greatest culprits. 

As much as 1 love Adventists 
and our organizations, I have 
yet to find an Adventist organ- 
ization, whether on a large or 
small scale, that has its act 
together. All too often I see 
examples of what 1 call "typi- 
cal Adventist unorganiza- 

away from such things.

The second SA chapel of the 
semester was held on Thurs- 
day, Decembers. 

The first item of discussion 
was the change in name of the 
Social Activities Director and 
the Student Services Director. 
The proposal was to name the 
offices Vice President of Social 
Activities and Vice President 
of Student Services. The 
students were given ballots 
when they entered the gym 
and they were picked up as the 
students exited. 

Next. Glenn McElroy opened 
up the floor for the open 
forum. The purpose of the 
forum, according to McElroy. 
was "to give the students a 
chance to put the officers on 

the spot. We want to allow the 
students to voice their opin- 
ions, and we want the stu- 
dents to understand that we're 
concerned about them." 

After the open forum, the 
announcement was made that

Overqualified or Unemployed 

Of the 965.000 college 
seniors who graduated last 
spring, one-third left their 
alma maters without jobs, and 
thousands are either still 
searching for jobs in their 
fields or are filling time in jobs 
in which they are overquali- 




increase of degree-holders 
(more than double in the past 
decade). Fewer entry- and 
lower-level positions are avail- 
able because of the number of 
"baby boom" employees in 
the work force. And the 
surplus isn't expected to de- 
crease until the end of the 
decade. Of 160 college 

surveyed by the College Place- 
ment Council, 34.5 percent 
reported fewer job offers on 
campus as compared to the 
previous year. 

Changes in demand are also 
contributing factors to the 
surplus of unemployed gradu- 
ates. As the nations industry 
shifts rapidly from basics to 
high technology, many gradu- 
ates find themselves left out. 
Placement directors say gen- 
eral business-administration 
majors are not doing as well in 
the job search as graduates in 
accounting, fmance and data 

even after a job is found - if 
the employee is overqualified 
for the position. This problem 
is particularly common in col- 
lege and university environ- 
ments, where one spouse 
takes whatever is available 
when the other is offered a 
good job is his or her field. 
Graduating students unwilling 
to leave the comfortable col- 
lege community ofter suffer 
this fate, also. 

As the old cliche goes, in a 
tight economy there are many 
Ph.D.s stuffing envelopes, 
mopping floors and driving 

The frustration may continue A drop in staff 

to conservative times in edu- 
cation complicates the matter 
as overqualified college work- 
ers find fewer advancement 
possibilities open to them. 

A loss of self-esteem and 
long-term career goals may be 
side-effects, and co-workers 
often have less or little in 
common with the over-educa- 
ted employee. 

On the job, overqualified 
employees may assume tasks 
beyond their job descriptions, 
which is motivational for a 
while but seldom produces 
tangible rewards or recogni- 
tion " especially in the com- 
pensation area. Even when 

supervisors want to promote 
or give raises, reclassifying a 
position or changing the salary 
scale isn't easy, particulariy 
with rigid state systems. 

Personnel specialists and 
career-planning counselors 
suggest that overqualified 
workers be candid about fu- 
ture plans with their supervi- 
sors. Bosses feel betrayed 
when they are the last to know 
about a worker's job search,

Mike Dickerhoffs team 
emerged as the champions of 
"B" league football with their 
61-26 posting passing of Derek 
Richardson's team. Turnover 
by Richardson and 

DickerhofTs potent offence 
turned this championship 
game into a route early. With 
Dickerhoff's team leading 6-0, 
an interception by Eric Mock 
produced a touchdown by Rob 
Lonto on the next play. After 
the insuring kick-off. another 
interception led to a 
Dickerhoff- Lonto connection 
in the end zone as Dickerhoff's 
team quickly posted a 20-0 

The two teams traded 
touchdown until halftime. with 
Dickerhoff owning a 33-12 

Richardson seemed to spring 
to life as they returned the 
second half kick-off for a score 
as Derek Richardson, Joe 
Deely, and Mike Burks hooked 
up for this one. But 
Dickerhoff shot back with 
touchdown scores to Mark and 
Hefty Martin with Mike 
Dickerhoff closing the scoring 
following an interception of 
the kick-off return. Richardson 
closed the scoring on the last 
play of the game as his team 

pulled a "Statue of Liberty" 
play with Richardson taking a 
pass from Mark Murphy. 
Dickerhoff will now play the

Students Visit County Jail 

Edward C. Ley, currently 
employed as a juvenile 
Probation Officer with the 
TDOC. brought a group of 
professors and students from 
Southern College to the Main 
Prison for a tour of the 
institution on October 29. 
The prison tour began at 9:00 
a.m. with attendance at the 
I Seventh-day Adventist chapel 
I services, where Ley led 
approximately 40 prisoners 
and guests in a song service. 
Taletha Thomas, 21, a recent 
graduate in Nursing at SC, 
I provided welcome relief from 

the usual acappela singing by 
playing the piano. 

Dr. Lorenzo Grant, professor 
of Ethics and New Testament 
studies, preached a sermon 
based upon 1 Kings 19:9, 
entitled, "What Are You 
Doing Here, Elijah?" 

Grant's colorful preaching 
style, mixed with a liberal 
dose of dry wit and vivid 
descriptions from his own life 
in East St. Louis, kept the 
congregation alternating 
between good-natured 
laughter and close attention. 

"If a person didn't go to 
church very often, they sure 
would go more often to hear 
him," Charley Hoover, The 
Interim Associate Editor 
and photographer, said. "I 
especially enjoyed hearing his 
personal testimony. I wish he 
were here more often," Mike 
Hartsock added. 
After the chapel services, the 
professors and students were 
taken inside Unit U so they

' 'And she shall bring forth a son. and thou shall call his name 
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. '" 

The night was dark, with only a few stars to brighten the 
highway into town. The couple drove slowly, looking for a 
vacancy sign on the motels they passed. After exhausting all 
the ones along the highway, they turned off to look for 
another motel on some side street in town. 

The street lights were already off as they slowly made their 
way from one end of town to another. No lights were shining 
in any of the houses they passed, nor were there any places 
to stop and rest. They kept driving up and down the streets, 
hopelessly looking out into the black night for some light, 
some sign of life, a sign of hope and rest. 

Finally, they noticed a small lamp glowing faintly through a 
dirty, grimy window way out on the very edge of town. The 
place was merely a shack and was located out back of the 
city's slum section. Neglected and falling apart, it was 
obviously the only light on anywhere nearby, and Joe knew 
he had to stop soon. His young wife was very tired and had 
turned pale from lack of proper rest. 

They had been traveling for days to get here. The promise 
of a new job with better pay had lured them from their tiny 
two-room apartment in a western suburb many, many miles 
away. But, Christmas was almost here now and Joe was 
afraid to tell his new boss that car repairs and gas had taken 
all but the last few dollars he owned until after he was really 
working and earning his salary. 

He needed to find a place to let Margaret rest, and then he 
would try to find some way to earn some money for their 
Christmas. He knew she would be lonely for her family, and 
he wanted to make Christmas as enjoyable as he could for 
her, since he had brought her this far from home. 

He pulled into the small yard belonging to the flickering 
light. Reassuring Margaret, he stepped out and cautiously 
made his way to the front door. His knocking brought a frail

Dear Editor: 

1 would like to express my 
appreciation to the committee 
or committees that plan the 
various entertainment series 
here at SC. Those of us who 
have taken advantage of these 
fine programs have really 
gotten a treat. The Artist- 
Adventure Series, the Cham- 
ber Series, and the Humani- 
ties Film Series have all 
provided inexpensive enter- 
tainment and educational 

If we, as college students. 

were to try to obtain the same 
quality of entertainment 
outside of school, we would 
not be able to pay our bills. 
Also, many of us would never 
have been exposed to some of 
these cultural events, despite 
the cost. 

The entertainment has been 
well-rounded and there has 
been an excellent variety of 
styles and interests presented. 
Thank you for a fine job. 

Shelley Duncan 

Dear Editor: 

1 would like to commend 
whoever is responsible for the 
beauty of the campus 

The Grounds Department 
really does work hard to keep 
the grounds here at Southern 
College pretty, and does a 
good job at it. 1 never see a 
piece of litter cluttering up the 
grass, or in the fall, see a 
bunch of leaves on the ground 
or sidewalk. It really is a 
clean-looking campus. 

And in the winter, when most 
of us have jobs inside nice, 
warm buildings, the grounds 
workers are outside in the cold 
to keep the campus looking 

If they think their work is not 
appreciated, they need not 
worry, because it is. On 
behalf of many other Southern 
College students who think 
the same as I do: Thank you. 
Sheri Porter 

Dear Editor, • ■ ~ - ■ "■ ■ 
I would like to bring attention 
to all the young ladies who 
work the registers and s 
food in the cafeteria. It seems 
like they always have some- 
thing nice to say, or at least a 
free smile. They are up early 
in the morning, when I'm sure 
they would rather be sleeping, 
and they are there in the 
evening, when I'm sure they 
would rather be socializing. 
They even work on th 
Sabbath-cur day of rest. This I 
means getting up and going to 
early service while the rest of 
us sleep and think about how 
we don't really have anything 
to do for a while. It also means | 
missing one of the nicest 
meals of the week-Sabbath 

Now some might say they are 

only there because they are 

being paid, and I guess this is 

true. But I would like to point 

___ a fact that should not be 

overlooked-working for the 

ages they are earning, surely 

it is not the paycheck that they 

smiling about. 

So thanks, ladies, for a 

terrific job. Merry Christmas!

Collegedale Celebrates 
Christmas in Song 

by George Turner 
Sabbath morning, December 
17, the Collegedale Church 
will come alive with the 
sounds of Christmas praise, as 
the Greater Collegedale 
School system presents their 



Program. Traditionally held 
the last Sabbath before the 
holiday break, the program 
will feature music from sev- 
eral groups representing the 
A.W. Spaulding Elementary 

"The church service will be 
changed slightly," said Dr. 
Marvin Robertson, director of 
the three choirs that will 
perform. "There'll be more 
music, and Pastor Beitz's 
message will be shorter. 
Other than that, it's about the 

A string ensemble from the 

school as well as the Suzuki 
Strings, both under the direc 
tion of Jenine Fryling and Orlo 
Gilbert, as well as a fourth 
grade choir, a fifth-grade choir 
and one choir comprising stu- 
dents from grades six through 
eight, will perform selections 
that date from one of the 
oldest known carols to songs 
of a much more contemporary 
style. Several students, 
including Michele Arner and 
Grant Schlisner, will perform 
solo selections. 

"We do this every year," 
commented Dr. Robertson, 
"because much of the joy of 
Christmas is in the child. We, 
as adults, tend to be rather 
Scrooge-like at times, and this 
type of program can help us 
see Christmas as it was meant 
to be."

•Christmas is in the air (and everywhere else): the Campus 
Tree, recorded music nightly, candles in Wright Hall, trees 
on every floor of the dorms, and in the cafeteria, programs, 
banquets, festivals, manger scenes, and candy canes; 
•Santa Clauses are ho-ho-ing their gollity into parties and 
programs and confusing little children who thought there 

only "one"; 

•Students and teachers are in the final academic throes of the 
semester: a plethora of projects, lab tests, reports, 
seminars, reviews, term papers, lists somehow getting 
prepared, turned in, and graded-while the omnipresent 
cloud of final exams gets closer and closer; 
•Through it all, we experience the special seasonal thrills of: 
carolling, gift exchanging, fragrant baking odors emerging 
from our homes, clever fireplace mantel scenes, decorated 
front doors, beautiful store window displays, roadside stands 
full of shiny red apples and glistening oranges and Christmas 
trees (all outrageously expensive), and that unique feeling of 
kinship and goodwill that we experience at no other time of 
the year;

"Chestnuts roasting on an 
open fire, Jack Frost nipping 
at your nose...", hardly a 
fitting song when the temper- 
ature is between 80 and 90 
degrees Farenheit. Of course 
the tune "I'm dreaming of a 
White Christmas" would be 
very applicable to anyone from 
the Northern Hemisphere - 
and dreaming is as close as 
they would get! 

Christmas is celebrated in 
Australia with as much delight 
happiness and commercialism 
as you would find here, but 
the big difference is the 
climate. However, in spite of 
how warm a day it might be. 
Santa will still deck out in his 
warm suit and try to be jolly to 
all the children. Cards will 
have winter scenes, shops will 
decorate with make believe 
snow and reindeer, holly, 

On the other hand, you may 
choose to buy a purely 

Australian Christmas card 
with a typical "Aussie" scene 
of wildflowers, wildlife or 
landscape pictured. You 
might sing songs that go "Out 
on the plains the brolgas are 
dancing" or "Orana to 
Christmas Day" and the 
favorite "Six White Boomers, 
Snow White Boomers." (This 
is a song about Santa being 
pulled by six big white kanga- 
roos while he is on the 
Australian run.) People will 
exchange gifts on Christmas 
morning with the emphasis 
being on summer rather than 

For those living inland, 
Christmas day will be spent 
with relatives and friends 
either at home or at some 
picnic spot. Mother will cook 
up the traditional dinner of 
fowl, baked potatoes, and 
trimmings, dessert will be 
plum pudding. Christmas fruit 
cake (different to American), 

as well as sweets (candies) 
and decorated biscuits 
(cookies). Those living along 
the coast will most likely go to 
the beach and enjoy the day 
there with a picnic lunch. 
No business will be open with 
the exception of a Chemist 
(pharmacy) for emergencies. 

Australia is a Christian 
country, mostly Catholic, and 
most people will attend church 
sometime during the season. 
People will sing Christmas 
carols together, children will 
perform plays and have a 
Christmas Concert for their 
parents. School ends the first 
week in December for the year 
so children are already on 

The day after Christmas Is 
also a holiday called "Boxing 
Day" but whether Christma^-, 
is spent here or in Australia it-^ . 
is still a very joyous and giving':. 

By Elder Jim Herman 

When I think of Christmas, I 
have many different feelings 
and reflecBons that run 
through my mind. I guess 
most immediately my family 
comes to mind - little girls 
around the Christmas tree - 
sitting in front of the fire -- a 
long table mounted with fancy 
foods and pies ~ friends 
calling " singing Christmas 
carols to the neighbors and a 
baby bom in a manger. With 
today's busy commercial em- 
phasis on Christmas, we tend 
to lose sight of the simple 
beginnings of the first Christ- 
mas. It helps for us to stop 
and think of the humble 
beginning of the Christmas 
story, how the infinite God 
could send His only Son as a 
helpless baby to this cruel and 
dark worid. The baby Jesus 
could have been bom in the 
hotel, but because of the 
crowd there was no room, and 
so today, as Jesus comes in 
various forms I wonder if He 
will find room in our hearts? 

Just a week ago I was made 
aware of this very situation in 
my own life. I was taking my 
girls to perform in a Christmas 
concert on Sunday afternoon. 
As we were getting ready to 
go into the church for this 
celebration service of the

December IS. 1983/SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 



By Dr. John Wagner 

An old Christinas legend tells 
of a cobbler who dreamed that 
the Christ ChUd spoke to him 
and said, "Martin, tomorrow, 
on Christmas day, I am going 
to visit you." Martin awoke 
early, prepared a special 
meal, cleaned his tiny home, 
then sat at his cobbler's bench 
to await the special guest. 

Hoping the dream had come 
true he responded to a mid- 
moming knock on the door. 
"Come in," Martin urged as 
he ushered a poor woman, 
with a child wrapped in a 
tattered shawl into his base- 
ment room. He felt a twinge 
of anxiety as he served the 
woman and child part of the 
meal he had prepared for the 
Christ Child. He shoved this 
anxiety aside and graciously 
. listened as the woman poured 
out her miseries. The woman 
left and Martin sat alone. 


dashed to the door, but his 
face fell as he saw, not the 
expected guest, but a street 
urchin shivering in the snow. 
He cared for the boy's needs, 
the urchin left and Martin was 
alone with his thoughts once 
more. Twice again during the 
day Martin's expectations of a 
special visit were dashed as 
the sorrowful and poverty 
stricken came to his door for 
help-but there was no visit 
from the Divine guest. 

By evening he was discour- 
aged. Had it all been an 
illusion after all? With a sad 
heart he went to bed. Then he 
heard a voice. "Martin!" He 
sat up quickly. "Martin, I did 
visit you today, I came in the 
form of the poor widow, the 
homeless boy, and the others 
you entertained. You did not 
disappoint me." 

Christmas is a season of 
many moods and activities. 
Giving gifts, sending cards. 

making phone calls, visiting 
friends and family, eating 
special food, skiing and other 
winter sports-these and many 
more activities are all essen- 
tial parts of Christmas that we 
shouldn't miss. 

Yet we must not forget that 
the old cobbler's actions and 
examples speak to the most 
essential part of the meaning 
of Christmas. To be consider- 
ate of others' needs, to be 
aware of what Christ expects 
of us and to hear Him speak to 
us, to be thoughtful in our 
actions, to practice unselfish- 
ness-these acts embody the 
most meaningful aspects of 
Christmas. While we enjoy all 
that makes this season so 
special, let's not forget the 
One around whom the holiday 
centers. And in remembering 
Him and His gift to us let us 
resolve to more accurately 
reflect His love on the campus 
of Southern College of 


Why couldn't they help him? 
Then I spoke, "Wait here a 
minute." My wife carries the 
money, so I went into the 
church, found my wife, dug 
through her purse and wallet 
and retrieved a twenty-dollar 
bill. As I emerged from the 
church a few minutes later the 
car was still there. I 
approached and again he got 
out of the cr, and what seemed 
to be a little brother got out 
with him. I then expressed my 
sorrow for his loved one's 
plight and wished him a safe 
trip home. He thanked me for 
the gas money and then drove 
away. I was tempted to 
wonder. Was he a con artist 
just making a little extra 
money or was he really in 

But then I remember that of 
all people WE as Christians 
must share not only in the 
good news of Jesus Christ but 
in the good things that He 
granted to us. Yes, we can be 
tempted during the Christmas 
season to be so caught up in 
all the things of Christmas - 
even at a Christmas concert - 
that we would miss the real 
spirit of Christmas - the spirit 
of giving - the giving of 
ourselves to Christ and for 
those He died.

Time Out 

Rod Hartle, Fred Roscher. 
and Carla Kamieneski teamed 
up to win SC's 1983 three-man 
volleyball tournament. 
Hartle. Roscher. and 
Kamieneski defeated the team 
of Jon Scheffel. Doug 
Sommerville, and Garth 
Thoresen for the champion- 
ship 15-5 and 16-14. 

The two finalists enjoyed a 
rather successful tournament 
throughout its course. 
Scheffel's team began the 
tournament by downing 
Loretta Messer. Bob 
Kamieneski. and Mike Waller 
15-13 and 15-6. Hartle's team 
out dueled Scheffel's team two 
games to one 15-12 and 15-3 
after loosing 15-12. thus 
sending Scheffel's team into 
the losers bracket. 
Hartle's team continued from 
there to defeat Bruce Gibbon. 
Steve Carlson, and Gary Howe 
in straight sets 15-12 and 
16-14. while Scheffel's team 
beat Mike Gray's team 15-4 
and 15-7. 

Scheffel then beat Kyle 
Selby's team of Selby, Dan 
Melendez and Rod Ramey 
15-4 and 15-9 before facing 
Hartle's trio in the final 

In the first championship 
game. Hartle got off to a 
commanding start by scoring 
the first nine points. 
Scheffel's team put up a good 

fight, but that wasn't nearly 
enough as Hartle won big 

In the second game, 
Scheffel's team scored the 
first three points of the game, 
but Hartle's team answered 
with a three spot of their own. 
After Scheffel's team scored 
the next two, Hartle opened 
up and scored five straight. 
Later in the game, with the 
score 9-7 in favor of Hartle, 
Scheffel. Sommerville, and 
Thoresen reeled off six 
unanswered points. But 
Hartle crept back to 13-10. 
With the two teams tied at 
14-14. Hartle. after numerous 
attempts by both teams, 
finally won possession of the 
ball. Kamieneski and Roscher 
then set up Hartle for 
successive spike plays to win 
the match and seal the victory. 
It was the second straight 
three-man volleyball 
tournament championship for 
a team captained by Rod 
Hartle. Fred Roscher was also 
a member of that team last 

The tournament was exciting 
and great to watch. However, 
the tournament suffered from 
the lack of attendance. This 
was unfortuate because some 
of the best volleyball of the 
season comes during the 
three-man tournament. 

The "A" League Champion- 
ship was at stake when 
Hartle's co-ed team took the 
floor against Calhoun's team 
Tuesday night. Coming into 
the game Hartle had 17 points 
while Calhoun had 16. It was 
certainly a good match. 

In the first game. Hartle ran 
off the first four points of the 
game using effective spike 
plays by none other than Rod 
Hartle. With the score 5-1 
Hartle. Calhoun's team, on 
the strengths of Jon Scheffel 
and Mike Waller, put together 
a scoring string of six points. 
Puttting Hartle in a deeper 
hole by scoring two more a bit 
later. Hartle's team took a 
time-out to regroup. Then, 
like an avalanche, Hartle 
scored 10 straight. Final 
score. 15-9 Hartle. 

In the second game, Calhoun 
scored the first two points, but 
Hartle came back with two of 
their own to even it up. After 
trading scoring spurts of three 
twice. Hartle blitzed Calhoun 
with five straight to secure 
victory and insure the "A" 
League Championship. 

In the third game, won 15-1 
by Calhoun, Calhoun scored 
the first 14 points of the game 
with Waller serving. 

Hartle finished the season 
with 20 points while Calhoun 
finished with 17. 

In other games of Tuesday, 
Roscher downed Messer two 
games to one 15-11, 10-15, 
and 15-10, while Wrate bested 
Lance Martin's team 15-13, 
15-9, and 15-11. Negron 
swept Laura Martin's team 
15-4, 16-14, and 15-6 to close

too bad, but that 1 percent is 
enough to kill you! . . . 

It was a college/ baseball 

Wesleyan and Lee College. 1 
happened to be working the 
bases on that Friday after- 
noon. Wesleyan had a runner 
on first with two outs. The 
next batter hit a shot between 
right and centerfield. The 
runner on first scored, but the 
batter-runner missed first 
base, touched second, and 
went to third for an apparent 

Having watched the runner 
miss first base, the Lee pitcher 
took the ball to the pitcher 
rubber, and while in contact, 
threw the ball to the first 
baseman for the appeal. 

"Balk!" I screamed, for the 
rules prohibit the pitcher to 

throw to an unoccupied base. 
It appeared that my call was 
correct . . . until the plate 
umpire overruled my decision, 
since "Time" had been called 
prior to the appeal. 
After the plate umpire called 
"play ball." the pitcher made 
the proper appeal, as he 
stepped off the rubber, and 
threw to the first baseman 
who was standing on the bag. 
"You're out!", I screamed, 
only to have the Wesleyan 
coach come charging out of 
the dugout to protest the call. 
"You only get one appeal!" 
The coach screamed. 

After a long, drawnout 
discussion, we (the umpires) 
declared the runner out. and 
disallowed the run. since the 
batter-runner was the "third 
out of the inning," (The 
appeal constituted a force 

The Wesleyan coach 

announced that his team was 
playing under protest. Did we 
make the right call? Would it 
make any difference if the 
batter-runner had missed- 
second base, instead of first. 

ANSWER: The umpires I 
made the right call, but could 
have avoided a lot of grief it 
they had communicated with 
one another. 
No play can be made during a , 
dead-ball situation. If ^^ 
pitcher had, indeed made the 
improper appeal during a hve 
ball situation, a "Balk" would 

be called. 

We called it right and "blew 
it" on the same play! 

If the batter-runner hao 
touched first base and missed 
second, the run which scored 
would count, since the batter 
runner would be credited wH" 
a single. ■

January 19. 1984 

1,465 Register 


Monday, January 9. 1984, 
was registration day for se- 
cond semester at Southern 

Miss Mary Elam, Director of 
Records at Southern College, 
gave registration figures and 
comments on the data now 
and what it has been in the 

At the end of the second day 
of classes this semester, SC 
had the following registered: 

1204 Students on C-dale 

130 Students on Orlando 

70 Projected off-campus 

26 RN/BS community 

nursing students 
25 Additional late 

1 .465 TOTAL students 


In comparison to first 
semester's enrollment of 
1,625 students. Southern Col- 
leges enrollment for second 
semester is down by 160 
students. Miss Elam stated, 
' 'Over the years we have 
averaged a 10% drop between 
first and second semester, so 
this is an average year," 

Miss Elam went on to say, 
"That's remarkable when you 
consider we had the largest 
December graduating class we 
have ever had - 143 in 1983 as 
compared to 83 in 1982. 

It is interesting to note that 
117 students had registered 
for second semester who were 
not here for first semester. 
"Thirty of these are transfer 
students," adds Miss Elam, 
"half of which came from 
Florida public colleges. Forty- 
five were students who had 
been enrolled at Southern 
College during previous years 
and left, but have not returned 
to our campus." ^^^^^ 

Southern Memories Off 
To The Press 

The 1983-1984 edition of The 
Southern Memories was com- 
pleted the 13th of January. 
Other than a special extended- 
deadline to include a double- 
page spread of the Rees 
Series, the entire yearbook 
has been finished. 

Stated Editor Malinda Mc- 
Kee, "I had a great staff to 
" i>rk with this year. Ever>'one 
nut forth their best efforts and 
I am really pleased with the 
quality of their work as well as 
their strong dedication." 

The yearbook is for everyone 
and a great effort was made to 
include each student in it. 
"We noticed, however, that 
many of the same people kept 
•'howing up on our proof 
sheets," commented the pho- 
'ographers. "The key to 
being in the yearbook is to get 

involved because we shoot the

The position of yearbook 
editor is one of those that will 
be available in the upcoming 
elections. Interested persons 
are invited to drop by the 
Memories office and discuss 
the job with the present 
editor. "Experience is not 
necessarily the key." Malinda 
said. "There are workshops 
available that you can attend 
and most yearbook companies 
supply information booklets 
and work extensivley with 

The yearbook is a big job for 
anyone involved, but this 
year's staff will say without 
hesitation that not only is it a 
valuable learning expei 
but a rewarding 

Senators Kick Off 1984 

The first Student Senate 
meeting of this semester took 
place this past Monday even- 
ing. J.T. Shim, S.A. Vice- 
President, called the meeting 
to order promptly at 8:00 p.m. 
After the devotion, presented 
by Senator Betty Durichek the 
Senate moved on to the even- 
ing's business. 

S.A. President Glenn 
McElroy then presented some 
nominations to various posi- 
tions due to recent resigna- 
tions. Most importantly, 
Steve Schmidt. Parlimentar- 
ian, had resigned to accept the 
position of Vice-President of 
Student Services, recently 
vacated by John Seaman. 
Recently Mike Palsgrove was 
voted in to replace Schmidt. 

Senator Donald Chase pre- 
sented the next item for 
consideration on the agenda. 
Which was a proposal con- 
cerning students being able to 
charge S30.00 a month at the 
V.M. on their I.D. card. 
Chase had Dean S ilisner 
address this proposal before 
the Senate. 

Schlisner pointed out some 
findings of Richard Remer, 
College Business Manager 
and a member of the Admin- 
istrative council, concerning 
this issue. Reiner has done 

his homework and from his 
figures it is clear that it would 
cost more than it would save in 
the long run. Any student 
wishing to examin Reiner's 
findings should stop by Dean 
Schlisner's office. After 40 
minutes of discussion, no 
decision concerning the pro- 
posal had been made. So, it 
was decided that the proposal 
would be tabled until the next 
meeting. It was also decided 
that Reiner would be invited to 
the next meeting so he could 
specifically address the issue. 

The 8:00 p.m. Thatcher Hall 
lobby curfew was the next 
item of discussion. After ■ 
about fifteen minutes of talk- 
ing, that issue was also tabled 
to await discussion at the next 
meeting. At that time the 
Senate will ask Mrs. Runyan 
to come to express her views 
on the curfew question. 

Following this, Vice- 
President Shim gave a quick 
summary of the Senate's re- 
cent tour of the Collegedale 
Phone Company. The tour 
lasted 90 minutes. Only five 
senators went with Shim to 
see the facility. 

Senator Cedric Williams then 
took the floor to cover senate 
projects; Specifically Straw- 

berry Festival and the appro- 
priation of more funds. Tlie 
Senate Project Committee said 
that the funds would be used 
to purchase projectors for the 
Festival's Multi-Media pre- 
sentation. The cost of renting 
the ten projectors needed 
would be SI. 570 at the least. 

The Committee had been 
offered an excellent deal to 
purchase these same projec- 
tors from The Kenneth Cox 
Crusade. The Senate would 
buy five projectors for SIOOO. 
A private donor has offered to 
match this figure. Therefore 
the Senate could purchase all 
ten projectors at SIOOO. After 
various comments and deli- 
beration the Senate voted to 
appropriate these funds to buy 
the projectors. 

President McElroy closed the 
meeting with a few remarks 
concerning past and upcoming 
events. He stated that be- 
tween $4000. and $5000. 
dollars has been raised by the 
Jog-a-thon. McElroy also 
went over some details about 
the S.A. ski trip and the 
Sweetheart Banquet. Follow- 
ing the President's remarks, 
the meeting was adjourned. 

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/ January 19, 1984 



Like Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, "It's always 
something. If it ain't one thing, it's another. It s always 
something." Of course, she's right, you know. Sometimes 
you just can't win for losing. o j i-u 

Let's take the Accent for an example. Sounds like a nice, 
easy job, huh? Well, it is. . . . if you don't count the tirne you 
spend making sure there are enough of the right supplies on 
hand, and if you don't count the classes you miss trying to 
finish an issue, and if you don't count the hours you spend 
waiting for a repairman or the frustration of trying to fix it 
yourself in order to save 1150.00. It is still an easy job, if you 
don't count the lost sleep from late Tuesday nights or from 
wondering if you forgot to put in that ad or picture. But, still 
an easy job, not counting the hunt you have to go through to 
find good reporters (like 1 did) or the sweating you do when 
articles or pictures are late and you can't find your 
photographers or reporters. STILL, people tell me it's an 
easy job!! 

Well, ... 1 ran for this office, and I guess I d have to say it 
was worth it. (If you twist my arm!) No, really, working with 
the paper has given me a chance to understand the pressures 
and responsibilities of being in charge of such a major 

Now, obviously, my job is not over. Actually, I'm only 
half-way finished. But this week has been a real trip so far, 
and it's only Tuesday! Since elections are fast approaching, 1 
figured now would be as good a time as any to let my 
successor know what was in store for him/her (this is an 
equal opportunity position) when they take over next fall. 
Good luck! 

P.S. Don't let me discourage anyone from running. Just 
take this editorial as my deranged ramblings. (Side effects of 
the job, you understand!)

Dear Editor, 
This letter concerns the limit 
imposed on the amount a 
student may charge on his/her 
l.D. Card at the Campus Shop. 
The $125.00 limit on books, 
supplies, and other necessary 
items has been in force at least 
three years. Meanwhile, 
prices have been increasing, 
resulting in a loss of purchas- 
ing power. The end result is 
that many of us students do 
not have an adequate supply 
of credit to even cover the cost 
of textbooks, let alone any- 
thing else. This problem 
could be easily solved by 
raising the credit ceiling to 
$175.00. the same level as 1st 

The school has taken the 
position that the number of 
students who exceed the limit 
is low enough that they can be 


dealt with 
basis. I disagree. 

Speaking from personal 
experience, I have run over 
the $125.00 limit each semes- 
ter on textbook purchases 
alone. Each time, I purchased 
what books I could, went to 
Randy White's office, waited 
in line to talk to him for 15 
minutes, then returned to the 
bookstore to purchase the 
remainder of my textbooks. 

During the semester, the 
need inevitably comes up for 
both school and personal sup- 
plies. Once again, it's over to 
Student Accounts to be for 
$10.00 so that I can purchase 
what I need. 

Now. my experience is not an 
isolated one. Many of my 
friends have also gone 
through the same process. 
Many others have had their 

textbooks total right below the 
$125.00 limit, leaving literally 
pennies to purchase other 
supplies they will need during 
the course of the semester. 
Nursing students, especially, 
are prone to exceed the credit 

I am told that to raise the 
credit ceiling would only en- 
courage unthrifty purchases 
by students. This argument is 
analogous to saying that rais- 
ing the credit ceiling at the 
cafeteria to $250.00 will result 
in everyone using the $50.00 
increment to stockpile Captain 

In summary, the need to 
raise the credit ceiling is 
obvious. I hope that this letter 
will help bring about the 
change I have proposed. 

Greg Mitrakas 

Dear Editor, 

The beginning of a new 
semester is perhaps not the 
best time to discuss a relative- 
ly unpleasant subject, but 
nevertheless, the topic of "re- 
trenchment" needs to be ad- 

In the upcoming months the 
college administration will be 
deciding which teachers to 
dismiss, and which majors will 
have their course offerings 

reduced or simply eliminated. 
Inasmuch as all these areas 
affect the student body, the 
inevitable question crops up - 
How are the students consult- 
ed in regards to these deci- 
sions? The answer at this 
point suggests that we are not 
consulted, or at least not in a 
way that is visible to most of 
the student body. 

Many administrators may 
object to this conclusion with 

numerous, apparently good, 
reasons, but the fact still 
remains: WE ARE NOT 
MADE. Southern College 
exists SOLELY for the stu- 
dents. The administrators are 
here for the students. This 
school DOES NOT exist for an 
oftentimes burdensome com- 
confd. on pageS

taught made me realize that

a moment his tenderness 
could turn to firmness when 
reprimanding someone who 
meant more to him than 
anyone in the world. He loved 
me. I was the only one, his 
only other son drowned before 
I was ever thought of. 

I'm in college now, a dream 
he had ever since my birth. 
One that he never lived to see. 

I stared at the ground, 
looking at the headstone 
thinking to myself that he 
never had any strong beliefs 
about religion, he was a 
simple man who had the love 
and patience that only a father 
could have. 

From the President 

By Dr- John Wagner 

A few years ago I attended a 
meeting planned and directed 
by some college students. I 
don't even recall what the 
meeting was about, but the 
evening did have a memorable 
moment for me. As part of the 
brief worship, a girl read the 
following lines by an anony- 

To laugh is to risk appearing 
the fool. 

To weep is to risk appearing 

To reach out for another is to 
risk involvement. 
To expose feelings is to risk 
exposing your true self. 
To place your ideas, your 
dreams, before the crowd is 
to risk their loss. 
To love is to risk not being 
loved in return. 
To live is to risk dying. 
To hope is to risk despair. 
To try is to risk failure. 

But risks must be taken, 
because the greatest hazard in 
life is to risk nothing. The 
person who risks nothing, 
does nothing, has nothing, is 
nothing. He may avoid suffer- 
ing and sorrow, but he simply 
cannot learn, feel, change, 
grow, love, live. Chained by 
his certitudes he is a stone, he 
has forfeited freedom. Only a 

person who risks is free. 

But what would life be like if 
risks weren't faced and taken? 
To laugh IS to risk appearing 
the fool, but to not laugh is to 
risk a barren, cheerless exist- 
ence much like a tepid, stale 
glass of water that will be 
thrown down the drain. To 
weep is to risk appearing 
sentimental, but to not weep 
means the harboring of emo- 
tion that may at appropriate 
times be a source of relief and 
comfort, both to ourselves and 
others. To reach out for 
another is to risk involvement, 
but to not reach out means a 
lack of enriching human con- 
tact and a self-centered mean- 
ingless life. 

As we begin a new semester, 
perhaps there are some ideas 
in this bit of writing that are 
important to all of us. Life's 
choices often contain risks 
because life itself is not a 
certain and sure time. And 
sometimes the result of risk- 
taking is unpleasant or even 

We could go on through 
these lines, but perhaps each 
one of us might prefer to think 
about these ideas as they 
affect us personally. If we did 

not accept the challenge of 
these risks and many others 
"we could list for ourselves, 

what might life be like? 

The poet Edgar Lee Masters 
compared a secure, riskless 
life to a ship that has remained 
in harbor with its sails snugly 
tied against the mast. The 
ship is safe, but it has failed to 

experience anything of 
worth. It has failed to make 
some significant mark on its 
purpose and time. 

This semester holds many 
risks for you. You will take 
risks in intellectual achieve- 
ment, in integrity, in personal 
relationships, in choices about 
the future, in spiritual and 
moral values and many othi 
areas. It might be comfortable 
to think of avoiding many of 
the choices that involve risks, 
but what would life be like if 
risks weren't faced and taken? 

Perhaps the answer to that 
question is best summed up 
by the following quotation: 

For of all sad words of tongue 

and pen, 

The saddest are these: "It 

might have beeni" 

May God bless you during 
this semester as you take 
risks, learn to distinguish 
between those risks that are 
worth taking and those that 
are not, and as you handle the 
results of risk-taking in the 
best way possible. 

Letters Continued 

munity nor a nebulous consti- 
tuancy represented by only an 
outspoken minority. Unfortu- 
nately, it happens all too often 
that institutions of this type, 
when facing these kinds of 
decisions, opt for what is 
politically and economically 
expedient, and not what is 
morally right. 

I do not mean to suggest that 
the administration of this 
school is guilty of this, but I do 
mean to suggest that the 
possibility is always there. 
We do live in a sinful society. 
The best antidote for this 
possibility is that those most 
concerned and affected by the 
decisions have a voice in the 
matter or are at least con- 

In conclusion, I would like to 
affirm my love for Southern 

College and my support for 
the school's administration. 
However, as History tena- 
ciously testifies, "unquestion- 
ing trust" in any situation or 
place is undesirable. Though 
no solutions have been pre- 
sented, the problem has been 
cited. In many ways the 
issues facing us now as a 
school are more substantial 
than the perennial debates 
over worship attendance, the- 
atres, etc. 1 sincerely desire 
that every person on this 
campus will give thought to 
the questions raised and real- 
ize the stakes. 1 invite any 
dialogue, whether in person or 
letter from any of my peers or 
the faculty. Hopefully, the 
response will be indicative of 
for the College.

lies Speaks at 
Lecture Series 

William A, lies, assistant to 
the president of Florida Hospi- 
tal in Orlando, presented the 
firsi of the E. A. Anderson 
Lecture Scries in 1984. The 
meeting was held Thursday 
Jan 12 in Summcrour Hall. 

The main topic of his talk was 
interpersonal communacation 
and how a business person can 
use this to run his business 
better. "When you get right 
down to it marketing is inter- 
personal relationships." says 

By Jerry KovalskI 

Mr. lies, "People who get 
fired or who get passed over, 
for promotions are capable of 
doing the job. They just don't 
know how to communicate." 

Mr. lies went on to explain 
about a survey that had been 
taken by the employees of a

Goddard "Kayaks Down the Nile" 

y George T 

At the age of 15, John 
Goddard knew more about 
what he wanted out of life than 
most people twice that age. 
He systematically wrote out a 
list of 127 challenges that he 
wanted to face head-on in the 
course of his lifetime. Now, a 
generation later, he has real- 
ized 106 of those quests, and 
will present a filmed record of 
one such adventure this Satur- 
day night as the Southern 
College Artists Adventure Se- 
ries presents "Kayaks Down 
the Nile". 
Starting at 8:00 p.m. in the 

P.E. Center, Mr. Goddard 
himself will be on hand to 
narrate the documentary, 
which will relate the hazards 
of his historical exploration of 
the entire length of the 
world's longest river. The 
film, heralded by the Los 
Angeles Times as the "most 
amazing adventure of this 
generation", follows the Nile 
River past strange tribes, 
exotic jungle life, and parts of 
Africa where a white man had 
never before set foot, all of 
which Goddard capture on 

John Goddard graduated 
from the University of South- 
em California where he ma- 
jored in anthropology and 
psychology. His list of 
achievements reads like an 
adventure novel: he has 
climbed 12 of the world's 
highest mountains, conducted 
14 major expeditions, tra- 
versed 15 of the world's most 
treacherous rivers, visited 113 
countries, studied 260 primi- 
tive tribes, and traveled over 1 
million miles. Still. Goddard 
does not believe in pursuing 
adventure for the sake of 

frivolous thrill; rather, he uses 
adventure to reach a worth- 
while end. that of scientific 
exploration, adding to the 
world's store of knowledge. 

"The adventure is exciting 
and enjoyable," says Goddard 
"but it IS secondary." He has 
been honored by the United 
Stated Chamber of Commerce 
as one of the outstanding 
young men of California, and 
was awarded the coveted Lio- 
tard Medal by the president of 




achievement in exploration".

Time Out 

Southern College's intra- 
mural basketball season 
began Monday night with a 
full schedule of games in AA. 
A, B. and Women's leagues. 
Traditionally the most popu- 
lar spectator sport during the 
school year, the 1984 season 
figures to be no exception. 

Dean Maddock and John 
O'Brien combined for 50 
points to lead O'Brien to a 
77-65 win over Peyton in the 
AA opener. 

A see-saw battle from the 
Stan, O'Brien pulled away in 
the opening minutes of the 
second half. 
A late Peyton rally fell short, 
as it greatly missed the play- 
making of Colt Peyton, who 
left the game with an ankle 

Maddock led all scores with 
26 points for the winners. His 
teammate John O'Brien added 
24 and dominated the boards. 
Bruce Gibbon and Chuck 
Slater scored 15 points each, 
while John Grys chipped in 14 
for Peyton. 

And introducing the other 
three "AA" teams which will 
see action later in the week - 
Dave Green and Ken Warren 
co-captain a squad that in- 
cludes Steve Flynn. Mark 
Carr. and freshman ■ Darris 

Bob Mountain and Jeff 
Richards lead a squad of Vito 
Montiperto. Matt Nafie, Dale 
Tunnell, Toney Fowler, and 
Reg Rice. 

Talge Hall's pre-season 
favorites - Evan Easley and 
Mike Gentry's contingent 
includes Greg Cain, Steve 
Carlson, Greg Caracciolo. Rob 
Lonto, and Jon Miller. The 
five "AA" teams are balanced 
with talent, that's for sure. 

There are nine "A" league 
teams, some of which boast 
players who could easily have 
played Double-A. 

The team of Robinson-Smith 
is led by David Butler, a fme 

knows how to play the "D" 

Ron Aguilera is as pure a 
shooter as you'll find in "Aaa, 
and could well be the league's 
best player. Kerbs and Hakes 
are relieved to have Ron on 
their team! 

Scott Yankelevitz, Anthony 
Peets, Sammy Smith, Mike 
Meriweather, Ted Evans, and 
Everett Schlisner are just a 
few of the talented players in 
"A" league. 

In A league action on 
Monday night, Sammy 
Smith's 18 points paced Duff 
to a 56-34 thrashing of Waller. 
Pat Hawkins added 12 for the 
winners. Mike Waller scored 
15 in a losing effort. 
In Women's league action on 
Monday night, Davis downed 
Paso 52-44. 

Tamara Nafie and Laurie 
Cotham each scored 24 points. 
Loretta Messer led all scorers 
with 26 points for Paso. 

In the "B" league opener,

Southern Cynic 

Once upon a time, there was 
this starving dog. 

It belonged to no one in 
particular, though several 
people fed it from time to 

Somehow over the years, the 
dog had always managed to 
survive, feeding from kind 
people's offerings of leftovers 
and scraps. 

Most people liked the dog 
and often went out of their 
way to feed it. (Parents 
especially like the friendly 
curt, for it watched over and 
protected their children from 

the wild dogs that were an 
ever-present threat to their 
children's safety.) 

But time got rough. People 
were forced to plan their 

closely, resulting in fewer 
and fewer scraps for the dog. 
Soon the dog's ribs began to 
show from lack of nourish- 
ment. Some concerned peo- 
ple noticed the dog was 
nearing starvation. 

They decided to form a 
committee and see what could 
be done to save the dog from 

The well-meaning committee 

came together and discussed 
fully the dog's state of rapid 
decline. After several hours of 
talking and reasoning, the 
group made a decision; a type 
of decision that committees 
have a knack for making. 

(Instead of finding an alter- 
nate means and source to feed 
the dog with, the committee 
decided the problem was the 
dog's appetite. It was just too 

big! They concluded that 
other dogs (though much 
smaller) got along just fine 
with the same amount of food 
that the starving dog was 
finding insufficient.) 

Having pin-pointed the 
problem, the group next form- 
ed a solution. They agreed the 
dog should have a by-pass 
operation and remove a sec- 
tion of it's stomach & intestine 
(about 25 inches in all). 

This operation was carried 
out. The dog miraculously 
recovered from the surgery, 
yet within a few months itid 
had grown noticeably moree 
scrawny from the meager 
scraps of food it was given to 

The committee once again 
met & decided the dog's 
appetite was still too big. (So 

once again the dog was taken 
into surgery and had several 
more inches of intestines re- 
moved in order to cure its 
insatiable hunger. As a result 
'the dog became too weak toj 
even move or protect the 
children as it once did. 

Parents of the children saw no 
benefits from feeding the dog 
and soon they stopped giving 
it scraps all together. And of 
course the dog died.

CCCO believes its legal 
opinion will spark great inter-

cers do not see it as their duty 
to deny aid to students raising 
constitutional or other serious 
objections to registration. For 
that reason Macalester

Minnesota and Swarthmore

suit challenging the constitu-

will help financial aid officers 
assist students with serious 
constitutional or other legal

CCCO is offering help to 
financial aid officers who wish 
to use an alternative form or 
who have questions about the

Since elections are coming up we as students and voting 
members of the Student Association need to be aware of the 
capabilities and "greatness" of each candidate. Carefully 
read the petitions when they are posted next week. Ask 
questions, make suggestions to the candidates for items you 
feel are important and worthwhile. THINK before casting 
your ballot for just any candidate. 

Your vote DOES count, and the Student Association of 
1984-1985 is counting on you. If you don't run. make sure 
you help right by voting responsibly. If you are running, vote 
and campaign responsibly. Elections are serious and those 
who win will have "greatness" thrust upon them. You can 
make sure that they are the ones to handle it.

KeflecHon Writing 

By Jerry Russell 

I've been learning to love 
myself. I know that sounds a 
I tittle conceited, but it's true. 
I I've been learning to love 
J myself because God loves me. 
I He has shown me that he loves 
I me, and for this reason I see 
\ that I am worth something. 

God has asked me to love 
I others as I love myself. This 
always easy. There 
always seems to be someone 
there to knock me down. But 
God says I am to love them 
Often I don't. I try to hurt 

them in someway, to put them 
back in their place. These 
next few paragraphs were 
written by Alex Lian. Alex 
brings out the pain and 
anguish usually suffered when 
someone has been wronged. 

It could happen anywhere. 
On any Street, in any town, in 
any state, in any country. As a 
matter of fact, it's happening 
right now. Somewhere there 
is a person, it could be 
anybody, being attacked. 

The actual assault can be in 
any number of ways: a look, a 

word, a fist, a knife, a gun. 
The consequences are equally 
as numberous: there's the 
hurt feeling, the broken spirit, 
the raped girl, the dead man. 
Then there's the by stander; 
usually an innocent person 
destined by fate to be at that 
particular place at that parti- 
cular time. Where does he fit 
in the overall scheme of 
things? Should he interfere or 
should he ignore? The law of 
survival says. "Don't get in- 
volved". Conscience says, 
"Shouldn't I do something?" 

The action progresses and 
the struggle intensifies. He is 
faced with reality, in some 
cases, the grim mirages of the 
T.V. screen have become 
painfully realistic. In other 
situations, the action has be- 

Slowly, imperceptibly, the 
conscience is deadened, the 
eyes become blind, right be- 
comes wrong, truth becomes 

For the sake of comfort and 
safety, the action is allowed to 

continue. Then it ends. The 
"I didn't realize" and the 
"that's too bad" are abun- 
dant. But it's too late. The 
slandered man has lost a bit of 
himself, the raped girl-her 
virginity, and the murdered 
man-his life. Evil has once 
again been committed. 

"Many will fall from their 
faith; they will betray one 
another and hate one another . 
and as lawlessness spreads, 
men's love one for another will 
grow cold." (Matt. 24:10-13) 

Letters Continued . . 

Dear Editor, 
I would like to reply in part to 

Alex's letter and also to add 
: another dimension to the 

ongoing controversy over the 
I need for retrenchment. 

I agree with Alex that the 
I students should be involved 
I to a certain extent in the 
I decision of which teachers 
I should be asked to leave or 
I stay as provided in the re- 
I trenchment policy. But this 
I could only be done by an 
I anonymous survey taken of all 
I Southern College students. 
iSuch a survey could not be 
nplemented in time to give 
hhe necessary notice to the 
|eachers involved-even if the 

iults were taken as the only 

iis for a decision. 

I What I would really like to 
Iddress is the reason why 
Retrenchment is required. 
pOW; the "low enrollment" 
is not the only reason. 

I In a discussion with the Dean 
ff Students, Everett Schlisner, 
found that the attitude of 
present and former students 
plays a large part. This 
Pttitude is the basis for many 
f/ the financial difficulties of 
> institution. 

I When a person buys a stereo, 
» house or any other large 

personal expense, it is often 
done by credit, whether a 
credit card or a personal loan. 
These people don't seem to 
mind paying off these bills on 
a regular monthly basis. 

Maybe an education isn't 
tangible enough. You can't 
hold it or see it, but you 
certainly benefit from it in the 
long run. It seems that some 
students, both former and 
present, feel that the school 
bill can wait until they are 
"financially stable." I realize, 
though, that the majority of 
the students who finish their 
degrees, pay off their bills 
much sooner than those who 
dropped out of college. 

In my discussion with Dean 
Schlisner, I discovered that 
there are student debts in 
accounts receivable amount- 
ing to nearly one million 
dollars. To be exact, on June 
30, 1982 there was a debit of 
$1,071,000.00 in accounts 
receivable. Admittedly, with 
the hard work and endeavors 
of Mr. Randy White, Director 
of Student Accounts for S.C, 
the amount in accounts 
receivable was lowered to 
$992,000.00 by June 30, 1983. 

To me it seems inconceivable 
that a person would leave an 
outstanding debt and not con- 

sider it important. Self- 
esteem is a good motivator for 
keeping the bills paid. 

Although the low enrollment 
plays a large part, these 
outstanding debts, if paid, 
would pay the salaries of all 
the teachers affected by the 
retrenchment for more than 20 
years (including conference 
medical, educational, and 
housing benefits). 

I hope this will give some 
insight to those who don't 
understand fully the reasons 
which necessitate the re- 
trenchment policy. 

Michael Peel 

Dear Editor: 

Militant feminism is destroy- 
ing America as the scourge of 
decency and civility. In the 
last two decades we have seen 
a dramatic increase in broken 
homes, spouse and child 
abuse and sex crimes, which 
goes along with a woman's 
decision to wear the pants. 

Jude 16 in the Bible 
prophetized of militant femin- 
ists as follows: "These are 

walking after their own lusts; 
and their mouth speaketh 
great swelling words, having 
men's persons in admiration 
because of advantage." 

Deuteronomy 22:5 is God's 
admonition against uni-sex 

and Jude 6-16 is the shameful 
result. Jesus strove against 
feminism and even said to His 
mother: "Woman, what have 
I to do with thee?" And for 
His crucifiers He said: 
"Father, forgive them, for 
they know not what they do." 
We can rebuild America with 
the only true word of God. the 
1611 King James Bible, or we 
can continue to let TV hype 
lead us to the slaughter. But 
our salvation can only come 
about through believing that 
Bible prophecy was meant for 
the latter times - NOW. (I 
Timothy 4:1)

Southern Scholars Widen Prospectives 

By George Turner 

Achievement comes in 
various ways to various indivi- 
duals. In the case of 46 
Southern College students, 
achievement comes in partici- 
pating in the Honors Program. 

The honors program, South- 
em Scholars, is designed for 
students with high motivation 
and intellectual curiosity, 
special projects, interdisci- 
plinary studies and designated 
honors courses help the stu- 
dent attain a degree of depth 
and breadth beyond those 
normally attained in regular 
baccalaureate studies. 

"It's a good way to get a 

better overview of live." said 

participant Chip Cannon, 

speaking of the program. 

"It widens your perspec- 

tives. ■ ' agreed Kevin Rice, 
another program participant. 
"It's a good deal," 
The program is administered 
by an honors committee, 
which admits students to the 
program and discontinues 
honor status of those who fail 
to keep up the minimum 
requirements, a well as moni- 
toring the progress of each 

Eligibility requirements in- 
clude a high-school GPA of 
3.70 or above for freshman 
and a cumulative GPA of at 
least 3.50. To continue in the 
program, students must com- 
plete a minimum of 12 credits 
per semester and 31 credits 
per year, as well as enrolling 
in special honors sequence 

courses and maintaining an 
overall GPA of at least 3.50. 
After successfully completing 
one year in the honors pro- 
gram, Southern Scholars are 
eligible to audit one three- 
hour course of their choice 
without charge. In addition, 
upper-division students in the 
program for at least one year 
are granted a tuition reduction 
equal to the cost of one

**Starship Discovery" in Chattanooga 

The Chattanooga Symphony 
Orchestra announced today 
that they will present a multi- 
media extravaganza in the 
Roundhouse on February 17. 
1984 called "Starship Dis- 
covery." The Symphony will 
perform music from recent 
adventure motion picture 
blockbusters such as Star 
Wars. Return of the Jedi. 
E.T.. Superman, and 2001: A 
Space Odyssey. The music 
will be enhanced by a dazzling 
array of visual effects, and the 
Roundhouse will be turned 
into a magical environment of 
sight and sound. 

John Giordano. Guest Con- 
ductor. Music Director of the 
Fort Worth Symphony 
Orchestra, will lead the 
orchestra in performance of 
these movie scores. The 

Orchestra will be using the 
original editions of the music 
as composed for the various 
films by the present Music 
Director of the Boston Pops, 
John Williams. 

Dean Corey. General 
Manager of the Chattanooga 
Symphony, commented: 
"This is the most ambitious 
undertaking that the Chatt- 
anooga Symphony has ever 
been involved with. Because 
of this fantastic music and 
myriads of lighting and sound 
effects that will be used 
during the program. I feel that 
the concert will be very 
appealing and something the 
entire family can enjoy. This 
type of concert has been done 
in numerous cities around the 
country with fantastic success. 
We anticipate a tremendous 

rush on tickets for this event, 
and would advise people to 
make their plans early to 
attend. We also have several 
surprises in store for the 
audience during the perfor- 

Tickets for "Starship Dis- 
covery" are priced at $10.00. 
$8.50. and $7.00 with a $1.50 
discount for children under 12. 
Mail orders can be sent to the

European Tour Visits 
8 Countries 

Plans for the European Study 
Tour, Adventure in Europe 
1984, are progressing rapidly, 
according to Dr. William 
Wohlers. Professor of History 
and Tour Director. 

Mr. Herman Simmelink of 
Europa Express, a Dutch tour- 
ing agency, was on campus 
January 22 to discuss lodging 
and travel arrangements. 
Tentative hotel reservations 
have been made in each of the 
fourteen cities where the tour 
will stay overnight. Due to the 
high value of the dollar, 
students who go on the tour 
can expect a higher quality of 
lodging than might otherwise 
be expected. 
^ As announced last spring, 


England, Holland, 
Belgium, France, Switzcriand, 
Italy. Austria, and West 
Germany. In addition, arran- 
gements are now under\vay to 
make a one-day excursion 
behind the "iron curtain" to 
visit Budapest, the capital of 
Hungary. London, Amster- 
dam. Paris, Rome. Venice. 
Vienna, and Munich are 
among the most notable cities 
where the tour will stop. 

A total of six hours may be 
earned on the tour in either 
history or humanities. The 
tour price of $3350 includes 
the cost of th-:, credit as well 
as all '-.unsportation, lodging, 
admissions fees, and break- 

fast and dinner each day. 
The tour will leave Atlanta on 
May 22 for London via Delta 
Air Lines. It will return on 
July 9 from Frankfurt, West 
Germany. About a dozen 
spaces remain open, so pros- 
pective participants should 
contact Dr. Wohlers as soon as 
possible at 238-2682 or 
396-3220. His office is in Lynn 
Wood Hall #207. 

The Class of '84 should find 
jobs more easily than their 
predecessors in '83. although 
they may be paid somewhat 
less to start. Graduates in 
1983 had the dubious honor of 
being caught in the worst 
hiring year since World War 

A Michigan State University 
survey this past fall showed 
increased optimism for 1984 
among employers, who plan to 

graduates. This improvement 
in the job outlook for new 
grads is the first in several 

According to the survey, a 
college grad can expect an 
average starting salary of 
$19,306 an increase of 2.8 
percent from 1983 (although 
inflation increased 4 percent). 
A strong 80 percent of college 
students will find work, the 
survev said. 

Additional indicators of the 
upward swing are in recruit- 
ment trends. Northwestern 
University placement director 
Victor Lindquist foresees a 
national recruiting increase of 
15-20 percent. 

At the University of Texas- 
Austin, a placement official 
reported an increase in firms 

interviewing on campus(last 
year's 490 to this year's 600); 
cancellations are down, also. 
Recruiting in the energy 
industry is still lagging, 
however. Last year, more 
than 100 Michigan State sen- 
iors, promised jobs with 
Dresser, Inc. , from Dallas, 
were disappointed when the 
oilexploration equipment com- 
pany had to back out on the 
offers. (Dresser is not being 
invited back for interviews at 
Michigan State.) 

Accounting and banking 
companies experienced prac- 
tically no hiring drops during 
the recession, while high-tech j 
companies saw a minor slow- I 
down in recruiting. 

Technical graduates - H^e 
those in electrical engineering 
and computer science - wiW

($26,000 or better), according 
to the Michigan State survey, 
while humanities and social | 
psychology graduates start at 
only $13,917. , 

The market for teachers is 
still sluggish, with salaries at

Self Protection Involves Attitude 

By Shirley Hopkins 

Monday. January 23, the 
Student Association presented 
It's first joint worship in 
Thatcher Hall for second sem- 
ester The presentation, en- 
titled "Self Protection for 
Women (and Men)" was con- 
ducted by Lt Jim Bullard of 
the Memphis Police Depart- 
ment Lt Bullard who created 
and performs this program is a 
magna cum Laude honor grad- 
uate in sociology and history 
and has a Masters degree in 
Education He has been a 
Memphis police officer for 
over 26 years and is presently 
assigned to the Police Train- 
ing Academy as Physical 

Training Officer. 

The subject of this presenta- 
tion dealt with every form of 
attack to which women are 
commonly subjected to 
ranging from mild forms of 
flirty-molestations to homici- 
dal criminal assaults. The 
physical counters to the 
attacks were easy to learn and 
proved to be very effective 
when demonstrated by Lt. 
Bullard and volunteer Marty 

The Memphis Police Depart- 
ment considers this program 
to be an attitude talk. Lt. 
Bullard got across the main 
attitude "Don't let a low-life 

character spoil three minutes 
of your day." "The program 
is not about choking people, 
popping eyes out or bursting 
ear drums, but about walking 
free in this land anywhere you 
choose to go. No one has the 
right to make you walk around 
in fear. What we must do is 
take offense, so take offense 
and the very act of taking 
offense will work like a miracle 
If each person in the nation 
would take offense to crime 
problems would end." 

Although Lt. Bullard is very 
proud of his self-defense 
course, he believes that none 
of the principles will work 
without the "right attitude." 

Chapel Meets At Camp 

fhis past Tuesday's Chapel 
was presented by the 
Chaplain's office, which fea- 
tured Summer Camps here in 
the Southern Union. The 
Youth Directors of the various 
conferences are on campus 
until this Thursday to recruit 
workers for this summer. 

A "campfire" program was 
presented to give students a 
sense of what camp is like. It 
began with a slide show 
featuring highlights of past 

at the different 
Camps Following this an 
ensemble consisting of banjo, 
string bass, and guitars enter- 
tained us The audience also 
got a chance to participate in a 
camp sing a-long 

After the sing-a-long stu- 
dents who had worked at 
summer camp shared some of 
their experiences. 

All agreed that it was a great 
way to grow in Christ.

Inflation dipped to an II year 
low of 3.8 percent in 1983. 
The 1982 figures was 3.9 
percent. The drop in inflation 
was due largely to the fact that 
fuel costs dropped 9.4 per- 
cent. These figures show that 
our economy is getting strong 
er and healthier.

6/SOUTHERN ACCENT January 26, 1984 


Time Out. 

SC's Intramural basketball 
season took an interesting 
turn Tuesday evening. David 
Green's "AA" team emerged 
victorious over Bob 
Mountain's team 59-54 in a 
game that included a player 
ejection and a request of all 
fans attending to leave the 

It started out as a good ball 
game, and the game was tied 
seven times in the first half. 
Thus, this hard-fought game 
drew the support of the spec- 
tators. As the game went on, 
it became physical, introduc- 
ing a verbal atmosphere on 
the part of the players as well 

At the half, the score was 
26-24 in favor of Green. 
Referees Steve Jaecks and 
Ted Evans talked about the 
taunting that they were gett- 
ing from the players and 
concluded that they would 
take no more. 

47 seconds into the second 
half, forward Ken Warren was 
called for a technical foul after 
complaining about a foul by 
forward Vito Montaperto that 
was not called. 

This made captain David 
Green upset, Verbally upset. 
His words earned him a 
technical. As this was going 
on, the fans of Green's team 
began to get loud also. 
Although this was statements 
for the team, the officials felt 
that it could be another form 
of taunting which Referee 
Jaecks later said, "would 
seem to be a factor for the rest 
of the game." 

Green became more upset at 
the technical foul called 

by Dick B|rd^a^°g^ 

against him and began taunt- 
ing the officials even more. 
Green earned a second techni- 
cal foul which earned him a 
disqualification for the re- 
mainder of the game and an 
ejection from the gym. Green 
then went for broke. His 
taunting increased in volume 
as the spectators drew silent. 
"You said that we'd finish 
dead last. So why are you 
reffing our games?" asked 
Green to Referee Ted Evans. 
Evans later said, "I have 
nothing against his team. 
Dave and I have always gotten 
along just fine." 

As Green was leaving, the 
officials felt that he wasn't 
leaving quickly enough and 
stated that Green's team 
risked the fate of forfeit if he 
didn't leave without further 
hesitation. This action drew a 
delay in the court play as the 
two teams waited for Green's 
departure. It also drew a 
response from a spectator to 
"get Dave out of here" in a 
positive-toned voice. Green 
began to leave, waving to the 
official who he had accused of 
not being "qualified to offici- 
ate his team's games." The 
gesture drew a roar from the 
spectators. Referee Jaecks 
felt that enough was enough 
and told non-players and 
others not directly associated 
with the game to leave, state- 
ing later that "if intramurals 
is not a positive experience for 
everyone, then it is not worth 

Ten minutes passed before 
the game could resume play, 
and when it did it was one of 
the best games of the season. 

Co- captain Warren took over 
and guided his team to the 
victory margin as Warren got 
help from Steve Flynn, who 
sank two crucial free throws 
with 1 ;27 left to tie the score at 
54. But it was Warren, whose 
two free throws with :11 to go 
sealed victory for Green (1-1). 
In a league action on 
Monday. Ron Aguilera scored 
25 points to lead Kerbs' team 
to a 79-49 blow-out over Duff. 
DufTs team could never seem 
to get on track from the 
beginning as Sam Smith, the 
big-play forward, and Don 
Duff both got three quick fouls 
in the first half. Smith picked 
up his fourth personal foul 
with 2:05 left in the half. 
Aguilera's fine outside shoot- 
ing and Joe Osborne's fine 
inside game led Kerbs' team 
to a 32-16 halftime score. 

In the second half, the roof 
caved in on Duff's team. 
Smith fouled out, was followed 
by Brian Newmyer's two tech- 
nical fouls and ejection from 
the game. Don Duff and 
Royce Eirp also fouled out 
leaving the team with only 
four players 

Kerbs' team made the best of 
the situation by opening their 
offense and blitzing Duffs 



Hawkins poured in 16 points 
in a losing cause. Kerbs team 
had four players in double- 
figures as they put on a 
scoring clinic. Kerbs im- 
proved to 3-0, while Duff 
dropped their record to 1-1. 
When asked about the game, 
Aquiterasaid, "I felt the team 
played a good game and I 
think that we can play a little 

lump ball 

better. Our game plan was to Hawley 17-4 to start the 

give Duff's team the outside second half. Mike Howerton 

shot because we felt that they and Steve Martin each poured 

could not hit it consistently." in 12 points for the victors as

Southern Cynic 

Mercy! The life of a Cynic! 
Certainly it has to be the most 
thankless and unapprecited 
occupation on campus. The 
daily struggle of the satirical 
writer is overwhelming in its 
very concept. For the Cynic 
has to see things not only as 
they are, but as they are not. 
Not only what's up, but what's 
going down. Who's in and 
what's out. 

Sometimes, this job can 
become a nightmare if the 
public suffers from that in- 
decent illness commonly re- 
ferred to H.A.I.D.S. or Humor 
And Itelligence Deficiency 

Syndrome. These poor souls 
have the inability to take a 
joke. This is physically 
impossible due to the breeze- 
way between their ears. 
Therefore, anything written in 
a sarcastic or cynical way 
becomes a personal slap on 
the chops and the whole point 
of making the reader laugh is 
lost somewhere in the ozone. 

H.A.I.D.S. is a very difficult 
illness to diagnose. Once it is 
allowed to reach its full poten- 
tial, the victim usually suffers 
for life. It becomes a chroni- 
cally boring disease that will 
eventually cause its victims to 

be stricken from the guest lists 
of many a dinner party. 

Before H.A.I.D.S. reaches 
epidemic proportions at S.C. 
it is the duty of every sober 
minded (and otherwide) indiv- 
idual to accept the responsibil- 
ity of determining whether or 
not you suffer from this pla- 
gue. Read the following 
statements. The more you 
feel apply to you the more 
dangerous your illness. If you 
are certain that they all sound 
like you. seek professional 
help immediately. 

1) It usually takes you the 
longest to "get the joke" and 

when you finally do, it's three 
weeks later and you had to do 
research in biology to under- 
stand it. 

2) When someone smiles at 
you in passing, you wonder 
what they want and if they 
were smiling because you had 
spaghetti sauce on your chin. 

3) You get an anonymous note 
from a secret admirer that 
says, "He who laughs, lasts" 
and you don't get it so you 
shred it up and put it in your 
hamster cage. 

4) You take everything liter- 
ally. When someone says, 
"Gag me with a spoon", you 

feel it is your duty to do so. 
5) You read the Southern 
Cynic and you become so 
upset that you phone home 
and tell your mommy that 
"they're talking about me 

Needless to say. life would be 
so much easier if people would 
laugh at themselves some- 
times. Especially the grue- 
ling, back-breaking, fingernail 
splitting, headache inducing 
lifeofaCynic. It's a hard row 
to hoe. but if it makes a person 
smile or one person think, 
then the verbal ABUSE AND

You know, sometimes I get a kick out of Red Kneckerson's 
comments on the radio. He really gets to the point and gets 
his point across in just a few words. His comments are never 
long, yet they pack a punch. The only complaint I have 
against him is that he seems so negative. Every time I listen 
to his broadcast, it seems like he's putting down something 

Sometimes, everything seems wrong and we as humans 
tend to complain quite a bit about our situation, saying that 
we wish the Lord would hurry up and come to save us from 
our miser>'. Yet. when the good times are around, we don't 
wish for "the end" to come. We don't think about it much. 
We are content to be happy and live right here, as long as 
things go our way. 

1 think it is natural for us as humans to be negative at 
some times in our lives. I do not believe that those people 
who are always optimistic are in full control of their mental 
capacities. However, on the other hand, I do not believe in 
continual depression and low spirits. These people are 
unbalanced as well.

Dear Friends: 

Greetings! It has been 
already close to two years 
since I graduated from 
Southetn College, but in a way 
it seems as if that was just a 
few weeks ago. I miss all of 
you, and the warm Christian 
atmosphere of our College has 
been and will always be in my 
memories. . . Those were 
really the good-old-daysl 

Thanks to our Lord's 
continuing help, I will Jie 
graduating from Purdue 
University this May with a 
Master's degree in 

Mathematics. Now I am 

happy to let you know that I 
have just accepted a job offer 
from AT&T Bell Laboratories 
in New Jersey. Recently I had 
the opportunity to visit the 
place where I will be working, 
and I found myself liking that 
environment very much, 
where thousands of people are 


telecommunications systems. 
My work will be in the 
Network Switching and 
International Systems 
Engineering Center. 

The job opportunities for 

scientists, as well as 

engineers, seem to be veryl 
good now in the industries, f 
and it would be nice t 
more of you studying in these I 
areas. And I wis 
encourage those that 3 
these areas to take somel 
applied courses, as well as the I 
theoretical courses, and gel| 
some work experience 
research or development ir 
related field. 

May the Lord be with you and I

Dear Editor; 

We. the men of Third East 
thought that our peers should 
be informed as to why we have 
not bathed for two days now. 
This decision was not ours but 
rather was made by theTBC 
(Talge Beautification Commi- 
ttee). It is beyond us as to 
why, here in the middle of the 
Spring semester, the TEC has 

decided to shut down our 
bathroom and paint its "atro- 
cious" ceiling. They claim 
that the ceiling was moldy. 
We wouldn't know. We never 
had a reason to look up. 
We were completely unaware 
that this move was being 
considered. Such swift action 
has been unparalleled since 
our boys landed on Grenada. 

Why, even the cockroaches! 
were caught with their pants I 
down, and you've got to get up | 
pretty early in the morning t<

Can't you see what he has 
been through for you? He 
died for You. Open your eyes. 
When you have a problem, 
doesn't he see you through it? 
When you have pain, doesn't 
he heal the wound? If he 
doesn't it's because you 
haven't asked him to. Jesus 
says "You may ask me for 
anything in my name, and I 
will do it." {John 14:14 NIV) 

If I could only write one 

sentence, it would be that 
Jesus loves you. If I only had 

one song to sing, it would be 
that Jesus cares. Sometimes 
it may seem that no one is 
there, but He is. Ask Him. 
He really wants to help. He 
says, "I know life's hard 
sometimes, but if you would 
just take hold of my hand I'll 
give you all the help you 

If I could tell you a story, it 
would say that Jesus died for 
you. And if I could do one 
thing I'd make you drop down 
on your knees and realize that 

He loved you so much that He 
gave up His throne, and He 
loves you so much that He 
gave up His soul. Jesus loved 
You so much that He took all 
the bad you gave Him. And 
now He wants to take you 

If I could do one thing I'd 
make you drop to your knees 
and say "Jesus, I Love You, 

I can't do that. You have to 
;do that for yourself. But 
iPlease. tell the Lord today that 
you love Him. He likes to hear 
it just as much as we do.

abroad. In a Sears. Roeburtl 
catalog, Fulmer found all thj 
required instruments. Touil 
cost: $227.70. Problem: 
catalog was 80 years old! 

The delightful sights as well 
as sounds of a unique form of 
music combined with theatri- 
cal entertainment - which 
started in small towns at the 
turn of the century -- now can 
be enjoyed again. The concert 
theater experience has return- 
ed to the gazebo in the town 

The nostalgia of those days 
past are being recreated for 
the public in the current 12th 
national tour of Mr. Jack 
Daniel's Original Silver 
Comet Band, featuring "Per- 
fessor" Dave Fulmer, who 
also provides the narration. 

The unique band has 
achieved widespread national 
recognition. Highlights in- 
clude two PBS television 
special programs; four record 
albums; a special performance 
at The White House; a Nation- 
al Public Radio special; a 
performance at New York s 
Avery Fisher Hall; and 11 
widely acclaimed national 
tours. And lo commemorate 
the 1982 World's Fair, the 
band performed in a special 
Gold Medal Exposition Show 

in Nashville. 

Exploring the smalltown 
band phenomenon with "Per- 
fessor" Fulmer. watching him 
perform, and listening to this 
remarkable band, is an enter- 
taining, educational, and 

ence. It is certain to reflect an 
echo from another era -- a 
quieter, gentler, and emin- 
ently more peaceful period in 
our American history. 

One of the most memorable 
musical groups of this period 
was organized in the tiny town 
of Lynchburg (population 361) 
Tennessee, in 1892. It came 
into being because of the 
town's most prominent and 
prosperous citizen, one Mr. 
Jack Daniel. He was not about 
to let his community lag 
behind neighboring towns in 
cultural advancement. 

Mr. Jack purchased the 
cornets, handed them out to 
"the boys." and urged them 
to learn to play. They did - 
and successfully. For the next 
20 years or so. the group was 
the highlight feature at politi- 
cal rallies, civic functions. 

selected funerals, and even at 
saloon openings. It quickly 
became widely known as "Mr. 
Jack Daniel's Silver Cornet 

But as the trend to urbaniza- 
tion progressed, and tech- 
nological innovations made a 
variety of entertainment more 
readily available, small-town 
bands disappeared. Their 
mellow sounds were lost- 
One of the few remaining 
tangible memories of the 
period is a faded photograph 
of Mr. Jack's band. The 
members are posed, self- 
consciously, side-by-side in 
front of the White Rabbit 
Saloon in Lynchburg. Because 
of this photo, it is now possible 
for anyone to step back into 
the historic er^ and participate 
in the happy, foot-tapping 

The photo had piqued the 
curiosity of Dave Fulmer of 
Berkeley. California whose 
multi-talents include historian 

writer. Fulmer decided to find 
out more about its origin. And 
he ended up, after three years 

Finding musicians for the 
recreated band was the easiest 
part of the intensive research 
and searching by Fulmer. But 
finding authentic instruments 
which would faithfully repro- 
duce the sounds of the original 
Lynchburg band was a formi- 
dable undertaking. 

As a start, "silver" comet 
was misleading. Fulmer 

found that the term might 
have originated because Mr. 
Jack's band may have been 
used during the "free silver" 
presidential campaign of 
William Jennings Bryan in 
1896. Or it could have been 
the color of the original 
instruments, which were 
plated with German silver. 

More obvious to Fulmer, an 
experienced musician, was the 
fact that the instruments in 
the faded photo were archaic. 
So he started scouring cata- 
logs, new and old, from all 


that still makes instruments of I 
the quality necessary for re. 
birth of the sounds of the| 
original band. The corneuf 
alto, tenor, and baritone wettj 
custom made by hand to the 
old conical configuration by' 
the Coueson Company. How. 
ever, the E-flat helicon bassl 
horn, discovered in an antique| 
shop, had to be restored. 

With the actual instruments! 
sucessfully in hand. Fulmerl 
then spent the necessary a 
tional time and effort in ,v-_ 
search to locate arrangements! 
used by the bands ii

band was reborn.

At least one candidate in the

plans. Daniel Moore, run- 
ning for the office of President 
wants to implement a new 
Social Activities Program, 
which would include clubs, 
teams, and the student pub- 
, lications, and is intended to 
awake admiration and poten- 
tial in the entire student body. 
Moore, an appointed mem-^ 
,ber of the SA judiciary, 
Icoramittee, has been sitting in 

^voluntarily on Senate meet- 
ings and intends to take the 
information he has gained 
along with a "proven ability 
for leadership" to the SA

of things on campus that he 
would like to change, includ- 
ing the menus in the cafeteria, 
the present state of the dorms, 
and the relationships between 
the student body and the 

Like most of the other 
candidates, Denise Read, 
ruiming for the office of SA 
President, feels that there 
aren't enough real communi- 
cation lines between the stu- 
dent body and the faculty. "It 
is my desire to have an aware 
student government," she 
said. "A channel that will 
communicate effectively and 
represent the views, ideas and 
feelings of the students as 
precisely as possible." Some 
of the things Miss Read would 

like to implement il she secur- 
es the position are to have 
contemporary Christian music 
played live in the Student 
Center on Friday evenings, 
and a co-ed television room, 
possibly even with video 
tapes. "And I'll have posted 
office hours," she said. Read 
has been involved with a 
number of activities on the SC 
campus, including the plan- 
ning of banquets. Senate fi- 
' nance committee, and Aca- 
demic Affairs Committee. 

JT Shim 

The present Student Associa- 
tion Eiecutive Vice President, 
JT Sliim, is running for the

people at Southern College," 
explained Mr. Shim, when 
asked why he wanted the 
office. Shim, a well-known 
figure around campus, has 
been an SA Senator for two 
terms, and has worked closely 
with Numerique and Joker 

publications as well as his 
current role as VP. "These 
and many more activities give 
me an excellent idea of what's 
going on, has gone on, and 
should go on." 

If elected. Shim intends to 
keep open to the student 
body's various interests. "I 
intend to keep you informed 
and to seek your support to 
make the year a success - 
because without you, there 
would be no need of me."

News In Brief 

By Roycfl J. Earp 

The space shuttle challenger 
is set to launch Friday. It's 
five member crew will be 
orbiting Earth for eight days. 
For the first time in the 
shuttle's short histor>' it will 
be both blasting off and 
landing in Florida; weather 
permitting. Of the 10 miss- 
ions planned for the shuttle 
one has been cancelled. 

The long expected 
cement from President 
Reagan came as he announced 
his intent to seek reelection. 
Reagan is in the strongest 
position as an incumbent since 
Eisenhower in 1956, and he 
rides high on the public opin- 
ion polls. His announcement 
ended speculation that he 
would retire at the age of 72 
and not seek reelection. 
Reagan will be running on the 
theme that he has restored the 
nation's self-respect and 
sense of purpose after the 
uncertainty of the 70's. His 
slogan is "America is Back." 

President Reagan gave the 
annual State of the Union 
Address Wednesday night the 
25th before both houses of 
Congress. He said that be- 
cause of bipartisan coopera- 
tion the nation's "long de- 
cline" had come to a halt. The 
topics discussed by Reagan 
were, national security, for- 
eign policy, terrorism, en- 
vironment, space, taxes, de- 
ficit, and the budget. 

China and Great Britain seem 
to be coming to terms over the 
future of Hong Kong. 
Britain's 99 ye^r lease on 
Hong Kong runs out in 1997. 
China has set a deadline for 
1984 on the terms of an 
agreement. London says that 
it no longer insists on a British 
administrative role after 1997. 

For the first time in 20 years 
the rate of divorce has 
actually declined. The divorce 
rate in 1981 was at 5.3 per 
1000 population. In 1982 the 

rate dropped to 5.1. This is 
according to the National 
Center for Health Statistics. 

The economy shows signs of

ic index is a compilation of a

future. These increases show 
that the economy is still in 
good shape and recovering 

Reagan is beginning his 
sales campaign for a budget 
that will have a $925 billion 
deficit. The details have not 
been made public yet but 
some of the outlines have been 
leaking out for several weeks. 
These include $305 billion for 
the military, $8 billion for the 
stari up of a manned space 
station, domestic spending 
cuts of $5 billion, tax increases

Some members of Congress 
are reviving the idea of replac-

President, agrees with Presi- 
dent Reagan on a dialogue 
between the two nations on 
arms reductions. But only if 
Washington would stop trying 
to conduct talks from a posi-

Keep Red Gross 


I/SOUTHERN ACCENT/February2, 1984 

Time Oul 

by Randy Thuesdee 

Greg Culpepper's lay-up with 
two seconds to go lifted John 
O'brien's team to a 65-63 win 
over Mike Gentry's team in 
Monday's *AA' game. 

It started out as if O'brien 
would coast as they began 
with an 8-2 start, but Gentry, 
behind the fine play of guard 
Jon Miller, pulled back for the 
first of twelve ties in the game 
at 12-12. 

The first-half shooting of 
Culpepper and Tony 
McFadden helped O'brien 
keep pace with Gentry. When 
Culpepper was benched, his 
shot was sorely missed as 
Gentry pulled out to a 38-32 
halftime lead on the strength 
of timely buckets by Greg Cain 
and Steve Carlson. 

O'brien began their come- 
back in the second half as 
Gentry's team committed key 
turnovers with Miller, con- 
sidered the team's best ball 
handler, on the bench. 
O'brien tied the score at 51 
when Joe Denny sank a short 
jumper, but Gentry himself 
quickly put his team back out 
in front with a nice power 
move to the basket. 

After a time out, O'brien 
came back to take the lead as 
Michael Bryant hit a jumper 
from the left side of the key 
with 6:25 let to go. But Gentry 
kept scratching and eventually 
tieing the score at 63 with 1 :38 

Then O'brien went into a 
successful stall until a foul 
with nine seconds on the 
clock. Calling a time-out, 
O'brien devised a play which 
worked to perfection. As 
O'brien drove left, he attract- 
ed a crowd which left the right 
side wide open for Culpepper 
who took the AUey-oop pass 
and neatly banked in the game 
winner. O'brien improved its 
record to 3-1 while Gentry 
dropped their third game ot 
the season without a victory. 

It was a different scene in 
Monday night's *A* league 
game as Lonnie Kerbs direct- 
ed his team to its fourth 
consecutive win with a 79-50 
trouncing of Estrada. 

It was Kerbs, who played an 
outstanding game in the 
middle, and the playmaking of 
Everett Schlisner who turned 
this early close game into a 

At one point. Kerbs outscor- 
ed Estrada 17-8 to take a ten 
point lead at 29-19 midway 
through the first half. 

Scott Adams tried to bring 
Estrada back with good pene- 
tration moves through the 
lane, but Ron Aquilera made 
up for that with a crowd 
pleasing Magic-Johnson- 
behind-the-back pass from 
deep in the corner right into 
the waiting hands of Schlisner 
for an easy three-foot bank 

That play put Kerbs up 40-27 
at the half. The second-haif 
was no different as Kerbs 
went to their half court game 
with Aquilera sinking a couple 
of long bombs from the left, 
Joe Osborne's eight footers, 
Jim Hakes" inside muscle, 


and, of course, the Schlisner- 
Kerbs hook-up which after one 
neat fine-footer by Kerbs off a 
great feed by Schlisner caused 
the dean to clinch his fists and 
shout, ' ' Whoooahl ' ' Asked inevitable, 
later if he had an interpreta- 
tion for the exclamatory ges- 

ture. Dean Schlisner said, 
' 'Man, 1 just like making those 
assists. I really enjoy that." 
Estrada could never keep up 
the final margin seemed

Southern Cynic 

Honest. The following is an 
actual conversation between a 
couple of Talge residents that 
I most slyly eavesdropped on 
while waiting on my food one 
evening in the C.K.: 

"Hey, look. Here comes 
Paul and John. 1 hear they're 
back roomming together again 
this semester." 

"I bet it will never work out. 
The last they tried roomming 
together it only lasted a couple 
of months." 

"Yea, but that was before 
Paul managed to get a room 
on the new wing." 

"Speaking of roommates, did 
you hear Curt moved out on 


"Yes, he really didi" 

"But, but they seemed so 
a happy..." 

"Yes. I know, but rumor has 
it they had been having trou- 
ble for some time and when 
they got back from break 
they just decided to call it 

"That's too bad for Ted, 
especially after what he went 
through last year when Mike 
went village on him." 

"That's Mike for you. I 
heard he didn't even have the 
guts to tell Ted to his face that 
he was moving. He just 
packed up and left. ' ' 

"I guess Ted went to pieces 
afterward. I wonder how he's 
going to handle this new mess 
with Curtis? My goodness, 
that's two soured 

riages in less than one actual 
year for him!" 
"I feel sorry for Ted too, but I 
warned him last fall not to 
move in with Curtis. To be 
real honest, I'm not surprised. 

Remember about a month 
ago when we were all down in 
George's room?" 

"Is that who Curt moved in 

"You got it. Anyway, did 
you see how Curt kept eyeing 
George's new stereo and mi- 
crowave? He couldn't take his 
eyes off them the whole time 

"Come to think of it, he did 
get real chummy when he 
found out George was looking 
for a roommate . . .Do you 
think Ted knew what was 


going on then?" 

"Maybe not just then, but he 
found out later that Curt had 
been sneaking down to 
George's room to listen to his 
album collection." 

"George does have a nice set 
of records ..." 

"I don't care what George 
has, they'll never be happy 
together after what Curt did to 

"You're absolutely right, but 
ithat's the disposable times 
that we are living in. I heard 
some statistics the other day, 
said over 48 percent of the 
guys will switch roommates at 
least once over their four years 

"Speaking of disposable 
roommates, look who just 

walked in." 

"Well if it isn't good old 
run-around-Ron. You know 


1 the 

last two years." 

"Just look at him acting like 
a perfect saint. You would 
think he'd be ashamed to 
show himself in public after all 
that he's done!" 

"Is it true what I heard about 
him last year, making Jack 
move out of Ed's room so he 
could move in?" 

"Yep, but that's only the half 
of it. The whole deal got real 
sticky-ended up in a special 
committee, and get this - Ed 
and him ended up with the 
rcfrigerater that Jack had 
helped pay for. Makes me

What do you think of when you hear of "Valentine's Day?" 
Probably, you think of hearts -- satin hearts, chocolate 
hearts, cookie hearts, and paper hearts. Usually hearts you 
give or hearts that are given to you. 

Legend has it that Valentine's Day got it's name from St. 
Valentine, who defied an order of Emperor Claudius II. This 
order forbade the rite of marriage to soldiers, believing an 
army of single men would be superior. Well, Valentine 
decided to take it on himself and marry several couples. 
Another legend has it that Rome celebrated Lupercalia, a 
lover's feast and later changed the name to Valentine's Day. 

People have been sending Valentine cards with pictures of 
cupids, hearts, flowers, and lace since the ISth century. 

So if there is someone special in your life, remember them 
on Valentine's Day and share a little love.

GARFIELD® by Jim Davis 

From the President 

"You hold your future and 
the future of Southern College 
in your hands." A bit heavy 
isn't it, but partially true. The 
1984-85 S.A. elections have 
begun and the students you 
elect will help shape your 
attitudes and the attitudes 
toward the faculty and admin- 
istration. Having served in 
the position of S.A. President 
this year, 1 speak with the 
experience of fen months of 
administration and represen- 
tation behind me. 

Catchy slogans, "cute" 
campaign gimmicks, pictures 
on posters, etc. are all a part 
of an exciting campaign. 
However, we should never 

3lenn McElroy 
vote on a whim! Candidates 
can make promises all day, 
but nothing can be accom- 
plished without respect. The 
respect of the student, the 
faculty and administration are 
all important to the support of 
a good Student Association. 

I, as your president, and out 
of deep concern for the future 
of the SA ask one thing. 
Examine the candidates close- 
ly. Ask people knowledgeable 
of the candidates about their 
past activities with the SA and 
their competence. Just be- 
cause a candidate has held an 
impressive office or has im- 
pressive qualifications does 
not mean that they will do the 

best job. The future officers of 
the SA, especially that of the 
president and the vice presi- 
dent, must be perceived com- 
petent, not only by the stu- 
dents, but the faculty and 
administration as well. If the 
perception is wrong, we have 
defeated our purpose. We are 
virtually powerless to act 

You hold the power to elecl 
the right person! A successful 
and exciting 1984-85 school 
year awaits you if the right 
choices are made! Vole for 
the one who will best repre- 
sent you and your college!

Reflection Writing 

Several days ago I picked up 
a book down from my shelf 
that had been collecting dust. 
I had gotten this book for 
Christmas and had put it away 
and forgotten about it. The 
other day I had some spare 
time so I pulled it down and 
just about read it cover to 
cover in one sitting. It 
portrayed a very humanistic 
view of Christianity. 

The name of the book it 
Ktioche Writes Again by 
Keith Knoche. One story I 
found especially interesting 
was called "The Fishhook 
Sorting Machine." The story 
goes something like this. 

Jerry Morley lives in El 
Dorado, Arkansas. He ran a 
successful auto body shop and 
in his spare time he used to go 
out to the lake and fish for 
bass. He had a knack for 

catching the bigger ones. 
Jerry used to do all those 
things until he invented the 
fishhook sorting machine. 

One day, while on one of his 
fishing trips he noticed that 
the fishhooks had become 
tangled. Jerry's friend said, 
"Jerry, you're clever. Why 
don't you invent a way to sort 
fishhooks?" Jerry stroked his 
chin and drawled, "I'll bet a 
person could make a good 
livin' findin" a way to sort 
them things." "Livin" 
nothin', Jerry." Will said, 
"You could make a fortune. 
All those big companies that 
make fishhooks have to hire 
people to sort 'em. Just think 
how bad they'd like to have a 
fishhook sorting machine." 

That night Jerry pondered 
the idea and finally decided to 
go ahead and give it a try. The 

next morning he began his 
work. He sketched the whole 
plan of his multi-million dollar 
project. He still had several 
alternatives, so he experi- 
mented with all of them to find 
the best way to sort fishhooks. 
Many times he decided to 
scrap the idea but was always 
drawn back by that unfinished 
machine in the corner. 

Everyday, neighbors of Jerry 
would come and watch. 
"Ain't no way to sort hooks, 
Jerry, 'cept by hand." said a 
close friend of his. "Stop all 
this foolishness and let's go 

"Naw." said Jerry, scratch- 
ing his head." There's a way 
to do it and I mean to find it!" 

The days passed quickly. 
Seasons changed but the light 
in Jerry Morley's garage 

burned late into the night. 
Jerry made the final adjust- 
ments on his machine. Finally 
it was complete. 
Jerry stood back and watched 
as his machine quickly sorted 
thousands of fishhooks into 
neat rows according to sizes. 
It was absolutely amazing. 
About that time his old friend. 
Will, came by. "Hey, Jerry 
put that thing away and let's 
gofishin." Naw, Will, I'm too 
busy with the machine. I 
don 't have time. ' ' Jerry 
replied. Will shrugged his 
shoulders and climbed into his 
pickup truck and headed out to 
the lake alone. 

Jerry Morley used to run a 
successful auto body shop and 
in his spare time he used to 
fish for big bass-he had a 
knack for it. Jerry used to do

spends his time sorting hooks 
he'll never use. 

Most of us here are too 
pre-occupied with "surface 
matters" such as, getting an 
A on that test tomorrow or 
putting the finishing touches 
on that report that is soon due. 
All that is fine. That is what 
we are all here for. But we 
need to take time for the 
things that really matter, such 
as our relationship with Jesus.

You have to "tell her about 

it." Tell her that you love 


Best Friend, 

A year ago you earned this 
title and since then I've 
come to see how very 
special friendship can be. 
You put the sunshine in 
more days than you'll ever 
know. You're still 

"craziest" and patience is 
still a virtue seldom seen in 
Boo-boo and never in my 
best friend-but somehow I 
think we're still going to be 
ok. I'm also quite confidant 
the flowers are still white. 
Love you, 


You are the sweetest 
Valentine! Thanks for 
always taking the time to 
listen to me, even when you 
don't really have it! You 
are so unselfish, caring, 
and giving! You are a real 
friend. I Love You. 


Boss-You Lonely Guy! 

Just wanted to say thanks 
for the fun times. Hope 
you can lift weights now! 
And how are your tires? 
Have a happy Valentine's 

Your Chauffeur 


Now that you have come 
into my life-I have found 
someone special with which 
to share my frustrations, 
fears, quiet moments, and 
fun teasing times. I'm so 
glad that you are here. You 
are a sweetie. 

My Love, 
Your "Best" Perfection 

Yes, you got a classified.

Dear Wiggles, 

Since you have found a 
way to put up with me, and 
bring joy to my life, you

know who you are.

Loving You Forever, 

Dear Cub, 

My love for you has grown 
to the point that it's the 
heartbeat of my life. I think 
cupid exhausted his supply 
of arrows on my heart. I'n 
so thankful that there h 
somebody who can know 
me so well and still love me 
so much. 1 love the beauty 
of our freedom yet the 
desire for commitment. 
Let's continue to keep the 
flame hot even in this cold 

I'm your's babe. 

To My Greek God: 

With just a note I wasn't 
satisfied so I'm writing you 
this poetic classified. 

All I reaily need to say 

is I Love You, 

Happy Valentine's Day. 

Your Princess 
P.S. If that was too short 
read between the lines! 

Dear Stephen, 
Law school is busy and 
requires deep reflection. 
So when you go to study, I 
sometimes feel rejection. 
But although the days we 
spend together may seem 
short and oh so few. 
No matter how far away 
you are, I'll always still 
Love You! 

Dearest Anita, 

Happy Anniversary 
Sweetheart!!! Just thought 
I'd write a little note as you 
are my Love Boat. These 
past two years have been so 
great, and in one year we 
shall graduate. After then 
I'll marry you, and with 
Southern College we'll be 
forever through. 

Love Always, 


Happy Valentine's Day to 
my very special friend. 
Wish we could have spent 
it together. I miss ya 



April & Mary,

Day is the best ever!

Southern Cynic 


The first time I saw him, I 
just knew it was love. He was 
one of those tall, outdoorsy 
types that reads National 
Geographic between classes 
and carries a bag of trail mix 
in their front pocket. We were 
introduced. He asked me if I 
like to camp. I stretched the 
truth and said yes. He 
slapped me on the back and 
said, "Good girl." Ijustknew 

The next Sabbath he asked 
me to go for a walk. I thought, 
"How romantici" and accept- 
ed. He showed up with two 
fifty-pound back packs and 
enough gear to scale Lookout 
Mountain. I guess it wasn't 

love after all. 

Then I met his cousin. We 
had a class together and 
sometimes he'd send me en- 
graved notes all the way 
across the room. His penman- 
ship was superb. Ijustknew it 
was love. We went to plays 
together at the Tivoli and ate 
at classy restaurants. I was 
overwhelmed by his appre- 
ciation of the finer things in 

We went to the art museum, 
the opera, the ballet and the 
Anderson Lecture Series. He 
presented me with a rose on 
our seventh date. I just knew 
it was love. Then I received a 
note from his roommate that 

said my beloved had run away 
to Texas to be a cow poke. I 
guess it wasn't love after all. 
So, the roommate and I 
became close friends, since we 
had both been deserted and 
had nowhere else to turn. He 
was the silent, intellectual 
type. He read the Wall Street 
Journal and carried a brief 
case to class filled with en- 
cyclopedias. Whenever he'd 
get romantic, he'd tell me my 
face reminded him of some 
beautiful software he'd seen 
once at a computer fair. I just 
knew it was love. 

He sent me a computerized 
printout that said, "I admire 

you", and bought me a watch 
that had a Space Attack game 
in it. Then he installed a 
computer in his car that would 
talk to him. One day he 
disappeared. He had become 
obsessed with the voice in his 
car that told him when his 
windows were fogged up. He 
just knew it was love. 

I didn't date anyone for a 
while. I walked around feeling 
like cole slaw. It seemed as 
though love was eluding me, 
playing hide-n-seek with me. I 
associated it with the feeling 
of having your foot crushed by 
a 300 pound line-backer who's 

just eaten a big breakfast. I 
decided I didn't want love. 
"Who needs it?" I ques- 

Everyday I became more and 
more obsessed with the idea of 
loveless life. I began to accept 
the fact that I was not born to 
be loved. I would walk by the 
front steps of Thatcher Hall at 
night and see the dark silhou- 
ettes of the crowd gathered 
there. I wondered how many 
promises were being made, 
and how many were being 
broken. 1 swam in a pool of 

Then 1 met this lifeguard. I 
just knew it was love.

News In Brief ByRoyc«j 

The unemployment rate 
continues to fall d^espite the 
slowing economic growth. 
The unemployment rate has 
dropped from 8.2 percent in 
December to 8.0 percent in 
January. Since November 
1982 the unemployment rate 
has dropped 2.7 percent. The 
reason for such a slowing in 
the jobless rate is that there is 
such a large number of people 
in the work force. There are 
more Americans in the labor 
force now than there have ever 
been before, so in order for 
the unemployment rate to 
drop, more jobs must be 

Both of the satellites that 
were shot out of Challenger's 
bay malfunctioned and have 
been deemed useless by 
NASA. The Westar VI sate- 
llite owned by Western Union 
was lost Friday after it was 
jettisoned from Challenger, 
but was found Sunday in an 
orbit that made it useless to 
Western Union. Monday, 
Papapa, the Satellite owned 
by the Indonesian Govern- 
ment, malfunctioned and is in 
an almost identical orbit as the 
Westar VI. Tuesday, Astro- 
naut Bruce McCandless un- 
hooked a lifeline from 

Challenger and became the 
first man to fly free in space. 
He used a gas-powered jet 
pack to propel himself 320 feet 
away from the shuttle. Then 
used the $10 million backpack 
to come back to the shuttle. 
Both man and shuttle were 
cruising at 17400 mph. but 
there is no sensation of speed 
in the airless arena of space. 

The government in Lebanon 
is close to total collapse. 
Moslem militia have taken 
over West Beirut and have 
surrounded the U.S. Marine- 
held Lebanon international 
Airport. Evacuation of U.S. 
Embassy employees started 
Wednesday as the Militia 
closed in. The U.S. ordered 
the aircraft carrier Indepen-

The U.S. finally won a medal. A couple in fact. At the 
Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, the U.S. team has been doing 
their best to win a medal, and they finally did. 

The U.S. picked up a gold and a silver in the Women's Giant 
Slalom. Everybody breathed a sigh of relief. 

Expectations were running high for the U.S. team. 
Especially in the Ice Hockey portion. The gold from the 1980 
Olympics in Lake Placid hung heavy over the heads of this 
year's team of youngsters. Americans at home eagerly 
anticipated a repeat performance, but were sadly dis- 

Bill Koch was favored to win a medal in Cross Country 
Skiing, but placed well behind the three winners. I believe 
he ended up in 22nd place. 

Frank Masley was the American favorite in Men's Luge, but 
the Italian, Hildgartner, stole the show and the gold. Two 
Russians took the silver and the bronze, leaving the U.S. left 
out again. 

Maybe we expected too much. Maybe the pressures of our 
expectations were pushed too much on to those atheletes we 

Maybe the best way to go about it would be to say. "Do 
your best. We're proud of you no matter where you finish." 
Too bad we're too proud to say it.

Dear Editor: 

I would like to express my 
concern for those who feel it 
necessary to destroy posters 
put up by various candidates. 
To put it simply, it's down- 
right stupid. Hey people, give 

the candidates a break (not have put into their campaigns. 

literally)! They have spent 
good money (and a lot of it) on 
their posters. Please! 1 1 
Practice a little consideration 
and refrain from tearing, 
burning, and degrading the 
hard work these candidates 

If you feel the need to destroy 
a picture, then contact me. I'll 
make you a print at MY

Dear Editor: 

I would like to take this time 
to say a special thank you to all 
who made "Black History 
Week" a success. In all the 
four years that I have attended 
Southern Missionary now 
Southern College, this years 
program was great. 

David Green, you and your 
staff did a wonderful job in 
making Black History Week 
one I won't forget. 

A special thank you to Dr. 
Grant, for inviting Dr. 
Anthony Compolo to be guest 
speaker closing the program 
out. Dr. Compolo did a 

splendid job and his 
sabbath was one I'll never 
forget. He said some really 
striking things that hit home 
to me and maybe to some 

Now that I'll be graduating in 
May. I hope next year's Black 
History Week will be just as 
good as this one. 

In closing, I hope everyone 
has now realized or have an 
idea why Black History Week 
is special to all blacks here at 
S.C., and on other college 
campus, and around the 
world. As Michael Merri- 
weather said "It's a time to 

remember and honor black 
patriachs, and to highlight 
achievements of past and pre- 
sent leaders." 

To the Beta Kappa Tau Club 
members you did a wonderful 
job. Thanks for making my 
final year of Black History as 
far as college a memorable 

Good luck on planning next

Reflection Writing 


Almost as if it were 
yesterday, 1 vividly re- 
member the varied 
emotions I experienced 
upon my arrival to South- 
em College. I was over- 
whelmed and facinated by 
all the possibilities South- 
ern College could offer me. 
I thought the normal thing 
to do was to get to know as 
many people as possible 
and get involved in as many 
activities as possible, thus 
enhancing my total outlook 
on college life. 

Although I found these 
things to be somewhat 
true, I also found on the 
other hand that friendships 
and involvement in activi- 
ties didn't seem to be very 

important to some indivi- 
duals. It has always dis- 
turbed and confused me 
how some people can 
always find something to 
be unhappy about no 
matter ■ how great things 

The whole existence of 
this school is run by a 
dedicated faculty, staff, 
and administration who 
basically have a thankless 
job. Why is this so? We 
haven't learned how to 
condition our selves to 
thank those who make liv- 
ing possible. We take to 
much for granted' because 
to much has been granted 
for us to take. 

When was the last time 
the deans were thanked for 

their dedication in seeing 
that a condusive environ- 
ment for living and loving 
and learning has been 
maintained. When was 
Coach Jaecks last thanked 
for the excellent, efficient 
Intramural program he has 
run for the last tour years. 
When were our teachers 
and everyone else who 
makes Southern College 
the fantastic college that it 
is. thanked?? 

We have so much to 
appreciate and be thankful 
for; but we thank so little. 
Leo Buscaglia a well known 
lecturer and teacher, in his 
book, living, loving, and 
learning shares this poem.. 

Remember the day I 

borrowed your brand new 
car and I dented it? I 
thought you'd kill me, but 
you didn't. And remember 
the tin 

the beach, and you said it 
would rain, and it did? I 
thought you'd say, "I told 
you so." But you didn't. 
Do you remember the time 
I flirted with all the guys to 
make you jealous, and you 
were? 1 thought you'd 
leave me, but you didn't. 
Do you remember the time 
I spilled strawberry pie all 
over your car rug? I 
thought you'd hit me. but 
you didn't. And remember 
the time 1 forgot to teil you 
the dance was formal and 
you showed up in jeans? I 
thought you'd drop me. but 

you didn't. Yes, there were 
lots of things you didn't do. 
But you put up with me, 
and you loved me. and you 
protected me. There were 
a lot of things I wanted to 
make up to you when you 
returned from Viet Nam. 
But you didn't. 

Sometimes we don't 
realize the seriousness of 
our apathy and neglect 
until a special person or 
organization is no longer 
around, to enhance our life. 
I don't know about you but 
1 think I'm going to try and 
really appreciate and be 
thankful for everything 
around me before it slips 
through my hands never 
more to be recaptured. 

College Bowl Begins 

Southern College's first 
College Bowl in several years 
began last Monday night as 
Stan Hobbs' team met with 
J.T. Shim's team, and Kelly 
Williams' team battled with 
Donna Wolberts' team for the 
first round of the double- 
1 tournament. 

The College Bowl is designed 
to be a friendly, academic 
competition. The rules clearly 
state that good sportsman- 
ship is expected throughout 
the entire tournament. Deci- 
sions of the moderator are 

This year's tournament 
involves eight teams. Each 
team has four members and 
one alternate. Once a game 
has begun, there is no switch- 
ing of players allowed. 

A match is 25 minutes in 
length, according to the time- 

keeper. No one can stop the 
clock for any reason except the 
moderator. The team buzzers 
were contributed tor the event 
by the Student Association. 

Each game begins with a 
10-point toss-up question. No 
discussion is allowed on toss- 
ups. The team winning the 
toss-up earns a chance for a 
bonus question. These ques- 
tions allow discussion among 
the team members. 

For the first matches. Dr. 
Ben McArthur was the moder- 
ator. In the first game, 
Hobbs' team played with two 
starters and one alternate. At 
first, it seemed as if Shims' 
four players were going to 
take an easy win with a score 
of 55-0, Shim. 

However. Hobbs' alternate, 
Mike Battistone, helped save 
the day as they ended up 
winning 245-175. According 
to Hobbs, Battistone was the 
key to their winning the close 

The second game was swept 
away from the beginning by 
Kelly Williams. Donna 
Wolberts' team lost, 110-245. 
The questions for the 
tournament were submitted 
by facuhy members, and some 
will also be turned in by the 
various captains' for matches 
other than their own. 

Alex Lian has been a major 
contributor in organizing this 
tournament. He, with the 
History Department faculty, 
has put together an event that 
is of major importance on 
other SDA college campuses, 
such as La Sierra, Walla 
Walla, and PUC. 
The games are all open to the 
public, and students are in- 
vited to come, bring supper 
trays, and watch. The next 
round of matches will be this 
evening at 5:30 p.m. and 
again at 6:00 p.m. Goodrums' 
team will go against Lian's 
team in the first match, and 
will be followed by Duerkson 
meeting Mitrakas in the 
second game. 

Tonight's games will be 
played in the back of the 
Cafeteria. Next Sunday's 
games will be in the Banquet 
Room and will be Hobbs vs. 
Williams, and Shim vs.

Miller Hall Renovated 

Miller Hall, former music 
building on the campus of 
Southern College of Seventh- 
day Adventists. will be 
completely renovated for use 
as a theology center by August 
1984. according to Dr. Jack 
McClarty. Vice President of 
development and alumni rela- 
tions. Miller Hall was vacated 
after the completion of tfie 
new J. Mabel Wood Hall 
music building in 1981. 

To renovate the building, 
alumni from Southern Junior 
College, as the college was 
named from 1918 to 1944. 
recently began a fund-raising 
campaign to redo the two- 
stoPp' building into a long- 
needed theology center. The 
building, originally built in the 
50's. will be dedicated exclu- 
sively to the nurture of spirit- 
ual growth and understand- 
ing. There are currently about 
100 religion and theology 
majors enrolled at Southern 

In honor of the alumni from 
Southern Junior College, the 
newly renovated building will 
be named So-Ju-Conian Hall, 
and those who donate S5.00 or 
more to the project will have 
their names engraved upon a 
plaque. The renovation is 
expected to cost around 

Miller Hall is a natural for 
religious instruction since its 
music studios will become 
teacher's offices, the recital 
hall will become the chapel, 
the music practice rooms wi.. 
become preaching practice 
rooms, and the music library 
will contain a religion collec- 
tion and So-Ju-Conian 

The building is expected to 
be ready for use, complete 
with new landscaping, by the 
fall semester of the 1984-85 
school year.

copies. A major motion 
picture of the same name 
starred Joni playing her own

Joni's natural acting skills, 
were highly praised by 
audiences and critics alike. 

And. to a much greater extent, 
they are brought into sharper 
focus in the film series 

Joni's experiences have 
given her an opportunity to 
reevaluate her faith, and her 
priorities in life. Some of 
these thoughts were revealed 
in her second best-selling

and comfort to those who have 
personally experienced hurts 
-- broken homes, broken 
hearts, broken bodies, and 
broken relationships."

the Brokeness?; Where are 
the Blessings?: Mending 
Thmgs; and. Healing and 

Heaven. Included are glimp- 
ses of Joni's personal life and 
her work with other handi-

films demonstrate how each of 
us can play a special healing 
role in the lives of those 
around us who are experienc-

Job Openings For Graduates 

Washington D.C., January 
27. 1984 ■- The annual Chang- 
ing Times survey of jobs for 
new graduates found some 
bright spots for job seekers 
amid what is generally charac- 
terized as a flat recruiting 
year. The survey, which is 
unique in that it seeks respon- 
ses only from employers in- 
tending to hire graduates this 
spring, uncovered more than 
100 companies and govern- 
ment agencies with definite 
job openings. 

The employers with firm 
plans to hire graduating 
seniors this year are listed in a 
special supplement, "101 
Companies with Jobs for New 
College Grads." in the Feb- 
ruary 1984 issue scheduled to 
be on newsstands January 3 1 . 
Changing Times is published 

by Kiplinger Washington 
Editors, Inc. 

While many firms said their 
campus recruiting has been 
curtailed as a continuing 
result of the recession, many 
others offered encourage- 
ment, especially to students 
with specialized skills. About 
40 per cent of the companies 
surveyed reported that they 
are having difficulty finding 
qualified candidates for cer- 
tain kinds of jobs. Those job 
openings are mostly in techni- 
cal fields, such as engineer- 
ing, physics, dairy science and 
manufacturing. But some 
organizations report shortages 
of applicants for such diverse 
jobs as economists, linguists, 
restaurant managers, intelli- 
gence officers, physicians, 
and nurses. A listing of these . 

companies is part of the issue. 

Overall, about 40 per cent of 
the companies responding 
said they plan to hire the same 
number of grads as they did 
last year, and 30 per cent say 
they plan to hire more this 
year. Only 18 per cent report 
they will hire fewer. 

The special section provides 
a brief description of each 
organization's principal pro- 
ducts and services, along with 
an address where applicants 
should send their resumes. In 
addition, each listing specifies 
the tj'pe of academic back- 
ground wanted, and the actual 
job categories to be filled. 
Many employers have listed 
candidates in short supply so 
that individuals with those 
skills will have an added 

Besides the list, this year's 
job section provides an over- 
view of the current job market, 
and includes specific sug- 
gestions about writing a suc- 
cessful job seeking lettei 
preparing for an i 
adjusting to the demands of a 
first job. 

The graduates most in 
demand are those with 
engineering specialties, from 
electrical to aerospace and 
power specialties. 

Behind engineers on the 
demand index are computer 
science graduates, wanted by 
51 per cent of the listed 
companies; accounting grads, 
sought by 48 per cent, and 
economics grads, wanted by 
43 per cent of the companies. 

Further down the scale are 

graduates in mathematics 
(wanted by 22 per cent of

sciences {21 per cent) and 
liberal arts (17 per cent). And

Southern Cynic 


This article is reprinted 
from the October 22, 1981 
Southern Accent. 

Have you ever thought how 
many times a computer has 
made your life simpler? For 
instance, your student ID card 
saves a lot of time fumbUng 
around with money-. The ID 
card can also help you psycho- 
logically. Say you are walking 
from the cafe to your eight 
o'clock class and your hair is a 
mess. Pull out your ID card 
and take comfort in the fact 
that your hair could never look 
as id as it does in that 

Computers also make life in 
the classroom easier. Instead 
of giving the ole "take out a 
sheet of paper" quiz, the 
teacher hands out computer 
sheets for you to use. It's not 
all that much easier for the 
student, but it saves the 
teacher a lot of grading time 
which he uses to think up 
more work. The fun thing 
about these sheets is filling in 
your name. First, you spell 
out your name in the blocks 
provided, then blacken the 
corresponding letter be- 
neath. Now connect these 
dots by drawing a line through 

each one, from the first letter 
to the last. It usually takes 
form of an animal or promi- 
nent faculty member. They 
call this computer science. 

When you get out of your 
eight o'clock class, if it's 
Tuesday or Thursday, you join 
in the exodus to the church for 
chapel. On the way in. some- 
one, usually a computer dis- 
guised as a student, hands you 
a computer attendance card. 
They are pretty simple to fill 
out. At first I had trouble 
remembering my ID number. 

: it equals the number of 

hours I have to stand in line at 
the CK. 

After chapels I come back to 
my room and study. Once I 
had a thought, "Wouldn't it 
be neat if I could study by 
plugging my brain into a 
computer, then lay down and 
get some sleep." But some 
people have already beaten 
me to this idea. Have you ever 
seen people sleeping in class 
with their heads down on top 
of their books? The same 
principle applies. 

Last week I went down to 
Taco Bell. My credit must 

have been bad, because they 
wouldn't accept my student ID 
card. I had to use {excuse the 
expression) "cash." (One of 
those four-letter words around

Lobby Hours Discussed 
In Senate 

Monday, February 20, the 
Student Association Senate 
held its fourth meeting for the 
second semester. The 

meeting was called to order by 
S.A. Vice President J.T. Shim, 
followed by Senator Leah 
Louderbeck's devotional 

Some of the important topics 
discussed were "Lobby 
Hours" for the main lobby of 
Thatcher Hall and "Senators 
Visiting Constituency's". 

Major reasons given as to 
why the lobby isn't opened 
longer for the main dorm 
were: 1) The lobby is not big 
enough to accomodate a large 
crowd. 2) Desk workers can't 
hear or handle telephone tran- 
sactions. 3) Too much public 
display of affection. 
Millie Runyan, Head Dean of 

Thatcher said, "If the male 
visitors would come and stay 
for just a few minutes, and 
then leave it would be great." 
Results from a survey con- 
ducted by Senator Denise 
Read, stated that 99 per cent 
of the women would like the 
lobby open longer, half of that 
per cent would like the lobby 
open at least until 9 p.m., and 
ethers would like the lobby 
open until 10:30 to be equal to 
the men's lobby. 

A suggestion given on 
keeping the lobby opened 
longer was roping off a section 
of the lobby. Dean Runyan 
promised to take this sugges- 
tion to her residence staff and 
will report back to the next 
senate meeting, scheduled for 
March 12th. 

Bryan Davis, residence of 

Talge Hall, spoke of the 
importance of Senators 
visiting their constituencys, to 
inform them of who they are, 
and to keep them up-to-date 
on matters that concern them. 
Suggestions were presented to 
senators on how they can 
improve their acquaintence 
with dorm residences. 
Senator Cedrick Williams 
stated. "With the student's 
speaking up wanting to get to 
know their senators, maybe 
the deans would allow them to 
have a worship period." It 
was motioned that the matter 
he discussed with the resi- 
dence deans in order for the 
senators to be able to have a 
three-point worship or hall 
worship at least twice a 
semester, four times a year to 
get feedback and ideas from 
their constituency's. 


A broken 
Summit caused some concern 
in the CcUegedale area last 

from the pipes became mixed 
with the city water supply. 

Don Stafford, assistant to the 
manager at Eastside Utility, 
said the pipe broke at about 
2:45 a.m. on Friday morning, 
February 17. When workmen 
attempted to repair the line, 
sediment which had collected 
in the pipe was stirred up and 
flushed through water sys-

Teaching Learning Center 
Moves Into Rec Room 

The Teaching Learning 
Center has moved from the 
Cube Room of the Student 
Center to the Game Room in 
order to give them more room 
for their equipment and 
necessary small groups of 

According to Mrs. Carol 
Haynes, Director of the Cen- 
ter, the Cube Room is much 
too small for the purposes of 
the TLC and the Game Room 




needed in the TLC. Tht 
and study groups can spread 
out and not get in each other's 
way, as well as keeping the 
noise level to a minimum. 

Last semester, the TLC 
served over one fourth of the 
student body, literally causing 
the Cube Room to be too full at 
times. Now that the Center is 
in the Game Room, they not 
only have a larger room to 
begin with, they also have a 
separate room for Mrs. 
Haynes' office, a separate 

room for the computers, and a 
hallway reserved for the VCR 
that should be here sometime 
after Spring Break. The TLC 
also has access to the two 
study rooms down the hall if 
the need should arise for more 

Within the Game Room, now 
the TLC, there is a partition 
for privacy and for the instruc- 
tion of larger groups of stu- 
dents, such as the one Elder 
K.R. Davis teaches in math. 

Mrs. Haynes does not see a 
need for more expansion in 
the future, but is not sure of 
the needs of students several 
years later. She is currently 
operating the Center on grant 
monies and even though this 
money is cut back every year, 
plans to continue running the 
TLC the same way. 

Mrs. Haynes expects to have 
four computers by next year, 
as well as the VCR and other 
equipment she now has avail- 
able to the students. So far 

this semester, the TLC has 
been serving 25-75 students 
per day, as well as having 
such study helps available as 
GRE and GMAT books. 

She also has made available 
the 1983-1984 Nursing Tapes 
for nursing students. This is 
in addition to the Nursing Lab 
already in operation at the 
Library. The TLC has one 
difference, though. The stu- 
dents are allowed to check out 
the tapes. 

Mrs. Haynes feels that the 
new location for the TLC will 
enable it to better serve the 
students, which is why it was 
begun in the first place.

Reflection Writing 


We are lucky here at SC to 
have the opportunity to parti- 
cipate in such an efficient 
intramural system. The 
basketball season is over and 
as we look forward to floor 
hockey and soccer, I suggest 
we stand back and take a long, 
hard look at ourselves. 

This basketball season I had 
the rare priviledge of being a 
referee. I say rare privilege 
because rarely was it a privi- 

The worst thing about 
officiating basketball is deal- 
ing with basketball players. 
The beginning of the season 
ran smoothly. I was really 
enjoying myself out there. 
But somewhere along the way 
something changed. I guess 
as the season wound down, 
losses loomed larger and the 
players were more tense. 

I can recall a recent game in 
which a certain team was 
winning by a big margin. 
Near the end of the game a 
player from the other team 

drove for the basket. As he 
went up for his shot I heard a 
slap. I immediately blew my 
whistle and pointed at number 

After reporting the foul to the 
scorers table, I turned around 
only to be met by the offender. 

He stood there with his jaw 
hitting his kneecaps, his 
hands were in the air, and he 
kept repeating, ' 'I didn't 
touch him. I didn't touch 
him." I looked at him and 
said sarcastically "of course 
not" and walked on by. 

Now to be honest, I wasn't 
actually sure it was number 5, 
but he was right there in the 
middle of it so I called a foul 
on him. I had to call it on 
someone. I had heard the 
slap. 1 had to accuse

If number 5 had 
me and said ni 
something like that I probably 
would have been more careful

reaction he was disputing my 

Nina Webb Involved 

In Car Accident 

In order to dispell ] 
Southern Accent learned the 
facts concerning the auto- 
mobile accident of Nina 

At approximately 4:30 p.m., 
February 14, Nina Webb was 
involved in a car accident. 
While returning from town 
Nina lost control of her car, 
over corrected, slid into the 
west bound lane and hit an 
on-coming car, about 100 
yards before Stratford Place. 

The driver of the other car, 
Brian Hobbs, realized Nina 
had lost control of her car and 
locked up his car hoping to 
lessen the impact. Hobbs has 
no injuries other than a cut lip. 

Nina on the other hand, was 
trapped under the dashboard 
of her car making it difficult 
for the Medics to get Nina out 
of the car. After one and one 
half hours Medics sawed off 
the top of her car to pull Nina 
out. Nina was in no immed- 
iate danger and her vital 

signs were normal. 

At approximately 5:50 Nina 
was put into the ambulance 
and taken to Erlanger Hospital 
Upon arrival Nina was stable. 
There were no broken bones, 
lacerations, or any internal 
bleeding, but Nina did obtain 
a bruise on her right shoulder 
and a severe concussion. 
The first cat scan revealed no 
bleeding between the brain 
and the skull, but the second 
scan revealed a spot in the 
Thalmus. Whether this spot is 
an anneurism or blood has not 
yet been decided. 

Nina has remained uncon- 
scious throughout the ordeai> 
However, Monday the 20th 
she opened her ey^s 
to watch television. While she 
still can't talk, and is con- 
fused, Nina is progressing. 

The family of Nina would 
like to thank everyone for their 
prayers, and 

that continued prayers 
still appreciated. 

call, so subconsciously it is 
easier for me to call a foul on 
number 5 nextiime. 

This can be applied to 
real-life situations, too. 
Suppose I came into my room 
one afternoon and discovered 
that I was missing five dollars. 

Now, I knew my roommate 
has been a little short on cash 
lately and had asked for 
several loans, so naturally I 
assumed it is he who took my 
five dollars. 

Several hours later when my 
roommate came back into the 
room, I immediately interro- 
gated him about my $5. After 
accusing him and calling him a 
few names, he said, "Jer. I 
know it looks like I'm the 
guilty one, but could we 
discuss this later, after you've 
calmed down a bit?" 

Usually I'd just melt on the 
spot and apologize for accus- 
ing him. Chances are I loaned 
that money to him and just 
forgot about it. So you see.

a situation that determines 
whether it gets better or 

In a recent worship talk by 
Dean Qualley he shared with 
us the following story about 
Booker T. Washington. 

One day Booker T. was 
walking past this big mansion 
when a woman called out from 
the porch, "Hey boy, I need 
some wood cut." Without 
response or hesitation Mr. 
Washington removed his 
jacket and cut several pieces 
of firewood. After carrying 
them to the house and stack- 
ing them neatly by the fire- 
place, Booker T. went on his 
way. After a while a servant 
in the mansion gathered up 
enough courage to confront 
the woman and tell her her 
mistake. Almost immediately 
the woman ran down to 
Tuskeegee University, which 
Booker T. Washington had 
founded, and apologized. Mr. 
Washington said "Madem, no 
apology is necessary. I enjoy 

doing favors for my friends." 
Booker T. Washington was a 
man who refused to let other's 
attitudes toward him influence 
his attitudes toward them. Is 
this Christlifce? I think so. 

It says in Colossians 3:12-14 
(NIV), "Therefore, as God's 
chosen people, holy and 
dearly loved, clothe your- 
selves with compassion, kind- 
ness, humility, gentleness and 
patience. Bear with each 
other and forgive whatever 
grievances you may have 
against one another. Forgive 
as the Lord forgave you." 
This passage reminds us that 
we are not always loving. 
Hatred exists among those 
•who claim they are God's 
people, but I think that if we 
do have hatred in our hearts 
then we cannot call ourselves 

So let's remember to be 
aware of our reactions and to 
spread a little encouragement 
to someone. If we do, maybe 
they will see Jesus -- in us. 

Financial Aid Distributed 
On Rolling Basis 

Students of Southern College 
who will be applying for 
financial aid for the 1984-85 
school year should do so as 
soon as possible, according to 
Finance Office worker Diane 
Proffit. "Any students who 
need financial aid should get 
their completed forms in 
quickly," said Mrs. Proffit. 

She went on to explain that 
the financial aid was distri- 
buted on a rolling basis, with 
the aid going to the students 
in the order that they applied 

until the fund is exhausted. 
Before applying for financial 
aid. students need to go to the 
Admissions Office and pick up 
a re-applicalion form, fill it 
out. and submit it, since no 
financial aid will be given until 
the student has been read- 
mitted to the college. The, 
financial aid packets are 
available in the Student 
Finances Office, and Mrs. 
Proffit said that any questions 
concerning the form should be 
directed there. „_. ■

Rees Series Honors 

Dr. C.N. 

By Marc Carr 

The traditional "Rees Ser- 
ies'* of 1984 will tip-off this 
Thursday night. February 23, 
at 7:00 p.m. in the P.E. 

In looking at the history of 
the Rees Series, the tourna- 
ment was begun in honor of 
Dr. C.N. Rees. President of 
Southern Missionary College 
from 1958-1967. 

"From what 1 understand," 
Coach Steve Jaecks, Intramur- 
al Program Director explains, 
"Dr. Rees loved basketball, 
and after he retired, the school 
held it in honor of him." 

In the past, the Rees Series 
was a dorm vs. village tour- 
nament, based on a best 
two-out-of-three series. But in 
the weakness of the village 
team, they were having to add 
faculty members and P.E. 
teachers just to strengthen the 


team to make it competitive, 
which has led the Rees Series 
to what it is today-class vs. 

"I think it being a class 
tournament is better any- 
way." Coach Jaecks stated. 
"It adds class spirit!" There 
are still village participants 
who play in the tournament 
such as for the freshmen class: 
Tony Mcfadden and Greg 
Dortch; for the sophomores: 
Greg Cain and Steve Carison; 
the juniors: Dale Tunnell; and 
the seniors: Evan Easley, Jim 
Hakes, Bob Mountain, and 
John O'Brien. 

There is a team trophy 
awarded to the victorious 
class, then a trophy is present- 
ed to the Most Valuable Player 
of the tournament. In addition 
to that, five trophies are 
awarded to "all-tournament 

players." The people who 
vote for the M.V.P. and the 
all-tournament players are the 
four coaches which are Mike 
Meriweather, freshmen 
coach, Everett Schlisner, 
sophomore coach. Matt Nafie, 
junior coach, and Steve 
Jaecks, senior coach, with Ted 
Evans to break-up any Ue 
situations. All five men 
comprise their votes from the 
statistic sheet which Is organ- 
ized by Ken Burnham. 

The final play-offs of the

"Blessings Out Of Brokeness" 

"God's grace is sufficient for 
you no matter what (he pro- 
blem." So says Joni Eareck- 
son Tada in the film series 
Blessings out of Brokeness. 
The four part film series is 
being presented here at S.C. 
this week, and is being spon- 
sored by Campus Ministries. 
According to Tada, her story 
doesn't begin the day in '67 
when she dove into the 
Chesapeake Bay and broke 
her neck. She says that it 
began when she took her 
attention off her self and 
focused on God . Before 
realizing that God is not 
accountable to us, Joni asked 
"Why me?" She also points 
out that God is the measure of 
fairness and that true wisdom 

is trusting God. 

In one of the films Tada 
remarked, "He doesn't have 
to explain the whys. Jesus 
explained enough on calvary. 
We must trust Him because of 
what He has done. We have 
to learn to trust and obey." 
The film series concludes this 
Friday evening. The fourth 
part entitled "Healing and 
Heaven" will be shown at 8:00 
p.m. in the church. When 
asked about the films Deborah 
Doman, a Senior Elm. Ed. 
major, had this to say. "The 
films are totally inspirational. 
You don't need to be a 
paraplegic to understand or 
identify with the message, and 
it reminds us that God is there 
at ALL times."

Time Out 

The Rees Series, the high- 
light of SC's basketball sea- 
son, begins tonight. This 
tournament is one that is 
enjoyed by those who play and 
all who attend. This is a 
tournament not only for the 
basketball fans of this cam- 
pus, but also for residents of 
the community. This year's 
Series will showcase some of 
the finest talent this campus 
has seen in a long while. 

First, the freshmen team. 
This team features three 
offensive scoring machines. 
Ken Warren, a long range 
shooter and a power forward, 
heads the list of the fourth- 
seeded class. Warren is also a 
fine defensive player who 
blocks shots constantly and 
intimidates others to force 
shots or commit offensive 
fouls trying to establish posi- 
tion under the boards. Toney 
McFadden is another long- 
range shooter who scores in 
streaks. Once McFadden hits 
one, he's bound to reel off five 
or six more jusl like the 
original. When Toney's hot. 
he's hot! 

Sammy Smith is a fine scorer 
whose range is within 12 feet. 
Smith can take you down low 
or pull up for the nice bank- 
shot that he hits with ease, 

If guards Darris James and 
Rob Horn can get either of 
these three the ball cleanly 
and consistently, it just might 
be a long night for their first 
opponents, the awesome 
The Seniors have a fine team 
without a doubt. These guys 

will come at you from all over 
the floor and do it consis- 
Outside shooting seems to be 
key. If super-shooters Evan 
Easley and Ron Aquilera can 
pull the defense out with their 
accurate bombs. John 
O'Brien, Bob Mountain, and 
Jim Hakes will have a field 
day in the lane. O'brien is a 
master within the 10-foot 
range. Mountain, the old pro, 
will surprise the defense by 
hitting the 15-footer, but his 
real game is right under the 
basket, and at 6'8" that's a 

Greg Culpepper, a streak 
shooter, Mike Bryant, a fine 
fast break guard. Vito 
Montiperto. a battler in the 
lane, and Lowell Furguson. 
Mr. Rebound round out the 
top-seeded class. 

Tonight's second game will 
feature a fast-breaking team 
and a half-court oriented 

The fast-breaking team 
mentioned above are the 
Sophmores. When you say 
"fast break," you usually 
mention Colt Peyton also. 
Peyton loves to push the ball 
up the floor and catch the 
defense with their backs 
turned. Peyton also gets the 
defense to foul him with his 
moves to the bucket. Dave 
Green, a lightning quick 
guard, may foul you with his 
height, or lack of it depending 
on which way you look at it. 
He is a licensed stealer. He'll 
take the ball away from you in 

a second. He's a pest He's 
good. Also an excellent point 
guard who handles the ball 
well. Green will prove a 
positive force for the 
Sophmore team 

Up front, the sophs have 
Greg Cain who gives a new 
meaning to the word 'leaper" 
every time he leaves the floor 
Joining Cain is sophmore 
captain Jeff Richards 
Richards is a most impressive 
player. Always playmg with 
his head in the game, Jeff is 
the anchor of this team 
Richards owns a good turn- 
around jumper and is a fine 
rebounder. Oh, don't ever 
think of him relaxing on 
defense. This guy goes full 

Steve Carlson, Henry 
Coleman. Randy Thuesdee, 
and Mike Cromwell are great 
hustlers and five defenders. 
These fellas will have to put in 
a great effort each game if the 
sophmores are to make a run 
at it. 

Their half-court oriented 
opponents for game two will 
be the second-seeded Juniors. 
The Juniors are led up front 
by leaper Mike Gentry, and 
rebounder Bruce Gibbon. 
Gentry's baseline game is as 
fine as any. once this guy is 
hot. His shot is almost 
unblockable. He jumps so 
high, there's snow coming off 
the top of his jumpers. 

Gibbon is a great player 
inside the lane. His short 
jump shots are enough to kill a 
team. His rebounding is just 


Donny Howe goes for the btock In "B' 

Steve Flynn is the other 
forward. Flynn owns a great 
jump shot from the 15-foot 
range and is also good at 
getting position for rebounds. 
John Grys is a fine player who 
plays with his head in the 
game. Grys shoots well and 
rebounds good. Grys is 
overdue for a great game, and 
this is a perfect time for him to

Southern Cynic 

Television has never been a 
friend to me. When I was six 
years old, my optometrist told 
me my eyes were permanently 
damaged from sitting too close 
to the picture tube. So, there I 
was, my first day of school 
with "four eyes". I didn't 
even have the pleasure of 
telling my classmates that I 
had inherited a strange eye 
weakness from my great- 
grandmother, the famous 

Instead, I would relate the 
sad tale of my infancy and how 
my abusive babysitter would 

prop me up in my pumpkin 
seat in front of the television 
while she talked on the phone 
to her boyfriend. Four hours 
later, he would come over to 
see if I had fallen asleep yet 
and find me crossed-eyed, 
with my pupils dilated. It 
wasn't until I got my first pair 
of glasses that I realized I 
wasn't supposed to see two of 

Then, when I started dating, 
I began to notice that it was a 
big deal for a guy to ask a girl 
over to his house to watch 
television. This really upset 


can watch 
T.V. anytime. I wanted to do 
something interesting enough 
to write in my diary about. 
For example: 

Dear Diary: 
Tonight George and I went 
over to his house and watched 
T.V. His mom made brownies 
and told us all about her knee 
operation. His little brother 
put a run in my panty hose 
with his new GI Joe. (He was 
repelling him down my shins). 

George didn't say two words 
tome. He was too involved in 
"Leave it to Beaver". What 


What I really wanted to write 

was something like: 

Dear Diary: 

Tonight Tex picked me up in 
his new convertible. We went 
for a drive along the beach, 
the moon was hanging like a 
big silver dollar over the 
ocean. He took me to a 
romantic little restaurant out 
on a pier. We dined with the 
crash of the surf beneath us. 
All the way home we talked 
and laughed and sang old 
Elvis tunes. He kissed me 
goodnight on the front porch 

and told me I was a "doll". 
What a dream. 

Sometimes, I must admit, 
T.V. has something good to 
offer. On occasion, if you 
happen to be there at the right 
time, the right place and the 
right frame of mine, television 
can be a challenge. From that 
little square box can flow some 
very thought provoking and 
intellectual stimuli. And if 
you time it just right, T.V. 
may stump you with deep, 
unanswerable questions. 
Like, "Where's the Beef?" 
Know what I mean?

Ecstasy" will be shown this

GARFIELD® by Jim Davis 


Dear Editor: 

In the past few months, 
retrenchment has been the 
topic of many controversies 
because it can be looked at in 
so many different ways. I'm 
troubled because so often we 
only look at in a negative way 
as the cartoon depicts it in the 
February 16 issue of the 
Accent. As with many things 
in life, it has its bad points, 
and one of them is the fact that 
we will be losing some very 
excellent teachers. 

Now I feel that we must look 
at why it is necessary. The 
school is hurting financially 
due to decrease in student 
enrollment. The student pop- 
ulation has decreased by 400 
students in the past four 
years. Nextyear it is expected 

to drop again. During this 
time, not one teacher was cut. 

The question I have is, why 
do we need the same amount 
of teachers now as we did 
when the enrollment was up? 
The teachers are here for the 
students, but if the students 
aren't here, why the need for 
the teachers? 

I must also agree that it will 
hurt all of us students. It will 
also hurt the administration as 
well, and I could sense it in 
Dr. Futcher's voice as we 
discussed the matter. We are 
losing people who are able to 
help us obtain our degrees. 
The faculty are losing co- 
workers who have strived for 
the same goals for so long. 
Due to the deep hurt and 

care for the teachers, the! 
administration is helping them I 
to get transferred, and many| 
are using the opportunity togi 
back to school. We must give| 
credit to the administration fori 
trying to work everything out! 
in the best interest of a11| 

That is why I feel that unless! 
we can come up with a better! 
solution, we should stand!

They are here forus, and theyl 
are trying their best to help us!

Dear Editor: 

The situation in Nicaragua is 
eirtremely critical at this time. 
The Nicaraguan economy 
which depends heavily on only 
a few agricultural exports has 
been under increasing attack

revolutionaries. Several hun-

damage has already resulted

Some of us go to church every 
week and wear the servant's 
mask. It's so easy to go to 
church smiling and greeting 
our fellow church members 
with a false Christianity. We 
hide our pain and laugh 
nervously when faced with our 
fears. But with feeble cheer 
we bite our lip and press on by 
ourselves. We can't go it 
alone. God wants to help us 
make it the rest of the way. 
But we must first help God. 
He needs us. 

"Why would God need me?" 

You may ask. Or, "What 
could I possibly do for God?" 

Well, have you noticed how 
the Bible is full of people 
doing things for God, even 
though, for some reason or 
other, they just didn't seem 
like the right person for the 


Look at Abraham. He lost 
faith that God would give him 
a son with Sarah and committ- 
ed aduhry. How about Jacob? 

He deceived his father into 
giving him the birthright, yet 
God used Jacob in many ways. 
Then there was Moses, who 
several years after murdering 
an Egyptian, came back to 
lead the Isrealites to the 
Promised Land. It was quite a 
mismatch when David went up 
against Goliath, but through 
his faithfulness he defeated 
the giant and brought many 
doubtful Isrealites back to 

I've also wondered why God 
picked such an undistin- 
guished couple to be the early 
parents of Jesus. Ifl had done 
the choosing, 1 would probably 
have picked a wealthy, high- 
ranking couple who could 
raise Jesus in a sophisticated 
"proper" way. 

And why would Jesus pick 
Peter as his closest friend and 
disciple? Peter was just an 
uneducated. rough-edged 

fisherman. But you can read 
in the New Testament of the 
many wonderful works Peter 
did for God. 

Paul was another surprise. 
For many years Paul was a 
persecutor of Christians, vet 
he was a key figure ' in the 
early development of the 
Christian Church. And Jesus 
Himself went to the temple 
when he was 12 years old and 
baffled the theologians and 
historians there with stories of 
his father. 

Each one of these went out 
and did a great job for God - 
and succeeded. Yet if it had 
been up to me, I wouldn't 
have chosen any of them. 

See what possibilities you 
have. God can do many 
wonderous things in your life. 
But first you have to choose 


Picture yourself alone on a 
boat in the ocean. There is no 
land in sight and you are losts. 
Satan begins to rock the boat. 
All around the boat are hungry 
sharks just waiting for that 
boat to overturn. 
Finally, the boat capsizes and 
you are in the water. You now 
have a quick decision to make. 
Down deep, below the sharks, 
is Satan. He is at the bottom 
of the sea. What does he have 
to offer you? Certain death is 
yours if you choose to follow 

But at the surface, floating on 
a log, is Jesus. He has his 
hand outstretched for you. All 
you have to do is reach out and 
take his hand and you can 
join Him on that log. That log 
is the Cross, which He willing- 
ly chose in order to save you. 

What is your decision? Will 
you sink, or swim? It seems 
like an obvious choice to me.

and oil. Because of the urgent 
political and military situation, 
many Nicaraguans have been 
mobilized in defense of their 
country and cannot participate 
in the December-February 
coffee harvest this year. 

That is why I have chosen to 
respond to Nicaragua's call for 
international work brigades to 
ensure a successful coffee 
harvest this year. 

In the United States, the 
National Network in Solidarity 
with the Nicaraguan People 
(NNSNP) is working to co- 
ordinate volunteer participa- 
tion. U.S. citizens have a 
particular role in this harvest, 
because if it were not for our 
government's open attempts 
to overthrow the government 
of Nicaragua, the Nicaraguans 
would be free to develop their 
own political life and their own 
economy in peace. 

By participating in the 
volunteer coffee harvest, I 
hope to show that as an 
American citizen, I stand with 
the people of Nicaragua in 
their moment of need and that 
I oppose the policies of the 
Reagan administration. I urge 
others to support and write to 
NNSNP for further informa- 
tion on how to help the people 
of Nicaragua and to make 
donations. Their address is:

Week Of 
Prayer Ends 

Last week was SC's Spring 
Week of Spiritual Emphasis. 
The speaker for the week was 
Dr. V. Bailey Gillespie. 
Gillespie is chairman of the 
department of Church Minis- 
try at Loma Linda University 
in California. His theme for 
the week was "How God 
speaks to us and Effective 
ways for us to hear and listen 
to what He is saying' ' . 

In his first talk, he discussed 
rituals we go through to get 
people's attention. 

"For instance," said Gilles- 
pie, "Week of Prayer is a 
ritual we use to show that we 
haven't forgotten about God." 

He went on to point out that 
we sometimes get so busy that 
we let our relationship with 
God slip away from us. Often 
we only notice or recognize 
God during weeks of Prayer 
and required worships. He 

also pointed out the fact that 
we must open hearts, minds, 
and ears to God before He can | 
help us with our problems. 
Throughout the rest of the 
meetings, Dr. Gillespie out- 
lined problems to avoid so that 
we would be able to hear and 
listen when God speaks. He 
warned that we should not 
trivialize God. 

On Wednesday and Thursday | 
evenings, Gillespie was in the 
residence halls to talk to 
students on a one-to-one level. 

To close the week, he led out I

playing extremely sentimental 
music, I took the liberty to slip 
on the headphones. I was 
much surprised to discover it 
was a recording of a man's 
voice screaming over and 
over, ' 'Run. you fat slob, runl 
Keep going, you tub of lard, 
runl Runl Runl Runl", etc. 

The lady looked up at me 
with a tear-stained face and 
sniffed, "That's my husband. 
He makes me listen to that 
while I jog." 

The last thing I want to 
mention about jogging is for 
guys only. Gentlemen, if 
you're just beginning a run- 

ning program, do not use the 
track while beautiful, shapely 
lovelies are on it. Sure, 
they're very inspiring, but 
that's just the problem. Their 
presence has a way of making 
you try to do more than your 
body is capable of. 

I'll admit, it is music to the I 
ears when you sprint past I 
them and they say things like, 
"Golly, he sure is in shape." 
But just remember boys, you I 
can't fake running, and those I 
same beautiful lovelies proba- , 
bly won't have much to sayj 
when they pass you lyingj 
beside the Uack heaving 
your lunch.

Time Out 

During the course of the 
school year, this particular 
column has covered intramu- 
rals for the Softball, volleyball, 
adn basketball seasons. This 
column has also kept up with 
the affairs of the PE Depart- 
ment, whether it be reschedu- 
lings or announcements. But 
one thing has been overlooked 
-- SC's gymnastic team. 

This year's team, in coordin- 
ator Rob Lang's words, is 
"Excepionally young, but the 
talent is there." In the team, 
there are 20 members and four 
specialists whom you will all 
meet at their homeshow on 
April 14. This number of 
members is significantly lower 
than teams of previous years. 

But they don't just sit on

campus. The team has per- 
formed at GCA, Highland 
Academy. Atlanta, and at the 
McKee Christmas party, all of 
which went well. This week- 
end will be no exception. The 
pride of SC will be travelling 
to Mount Pisgah Academy to 
perform for the students there 
along with a performance from 
the gymnastic team of Forest 
Lake Academy. After that 
performance, our team will 
give a two-hour clinic with 
teams from Fletcher, Pisgah, 
GCA and FLA. 

The team has been practicing 

very hard for this weekend 
and will do the same for the 
homeshow. As you have seen 
many times when you go into 
the gym for chapel, our team 
doesn't practice on Mickey

To back up that statement, 
the team has purchased a new 
spring floor, the kind that is 
used in intramural competion, 
which adds up six inches or 
more on a jump. 

There are a few outstanding 
individual gymnasts on this 
team. Lynette Jones, Robin 
Emmerling, Karen Artress 
and Jill Sadler are mastering a

March 22, 1984/SOUTHERN ACCENT/7 

Southern Cynic 

Springs is finally here. No 
one's complaining, yet a few 
are starting to worry. Once 
again the great apocalypse is 
about to unfold and the truth 
will emerge: No longer will 
some of us be able to hide our 
extra inches of winter lard 
under bulky winter clothes. 
It's time again to shed our 
overcoats and fat and start 
getting in shape for summer. 

Here's a few thoughts for 
(hose of you who will be 
turning to running as a means 
to wane what you've gained. 
The first and most important 
rule of jogging has nothing to 
do witli how far or how fast 
you run. The most important 
thing to remember is to be 

sure your clothes match. 
There is nothing more disgust- 
ing to see than a jogger, even 
a jock, wearing clothes that 
aren't color- coordinated. This 
is unforgiveable. 

Pleasantly though, the 
reverse of this is also true. 
The other day a friend and !■ 
were walking toward the gym. 
We passed a large fellow who 
was lumbering along sweat- 
ing, straining, panting in a 
crude similation of a jog. He 
could easily have weighed in 
excess of 500 (and I ain't 
talking metric here). 

I nudged my friend and 
whispered, "Would you look 
at that poor guy." 
"Yea, but look how nice his 

If you're going to discard the 
lard by running, here's some- 
thing to consider. Jogging is 
easily the most boring of all 
exercise activities. So you 
may want to jog with a friend 
for company, although it is 
difficuh to converse between 
gasps for air and mild heart 

Many people enjoy listening 
to music as a means to prevent 
jogging boredom. A guy 
named Walkman understood 
this and capitalized on it. 
Walkmans are enjoyed by all 
running groups from begin- 
ners to the well-seasoned long 

distant runners we see pas- 
sing our cars beside the 

Walkmans bring to mind 
some memories . . . Once, 
when I was just beginning a 
jogging program, I was out on 
the track huffing, puffing, 
gasping, and choking for air. 
and in all, slowly dying a most 
excruciating, painful death. 
(By the second lap I was much 
worse.) To add to my misery, 
I was having to share the track 
with a dude that must have 
been a candidate for the 
Olympic's triathalon. Each 
time he passed me I could 
hear him humming along with 
the music he had blasting into 
his ears. A wisp of a 
contented smile played at the 
comers of his mouth as he 
moved around the track at an 
extremely fast lope. By the 
eighth time he lapped me I 
was getting irritated and my 
dark side started to think of a 
way for me to communicate to 
"Mr. Marathon' ' my deep 


disgust for him and e 
he represented. 

Then it hit me: the guy 
probably couldn't hear me ■' 
above his tunes. So the next 
time he started to pass me, I 
turned toward him, and keep- 
ping a pleasant smile on my 
face, I called him a string of 
vile oaths any 20-year sailor 
would be proud of. The sucker 
only returned my smile, nod- 
ded, and kept going. I 
suddenly felt terrific! 

Another incident involving a 
Walkman happened early one 
morning when I chanced to 
walk by the track. There 
sprawled beside the asphalt 
was a rather portly middle- 
aged woman wearing a run- 
ning suit. Her head was down 
and she was sobbing uncon- 
trollably. I approached her 
and asked her if she was ok. 
She only gestured to a walk- 
man lying in the grass beside

Senate Unable To Vote Anything Through 

Southern College's Student 
St-nate met for the second 
lime since Spring Break last 
nit;ht to discuss bills and make 
plans for next year. This is 
.ilso the second time the 
senate met without a quorum 
in attendance in several years. 

The senate meeting of March 
12 was low on attendance so 
the senate was only able to 
ser\'e as a committee, and was 
not able to vote on anything. 

Last night's Senate meeting 
saw only 14 in attendance. 
Sixteen are needed for a 
quorum, therefore, the senate 
was unable to vote anything 

As the meeting began, the 
devotional was to be given by 
Reginald Rice, who was ab- 
sent. He also sent notice that 
He was resigning the senate 
since he did not have the time. 

Senate Chairman JT Shim 
read an announcement from 
Dean of Women Millie Run- 
yan concerning the curfew in 
Thatcher Hall lobby. The 
women's deans have decided 
to allow men to enter the lobby 
after 8:00 p.m. to use the 
phone, but are not to linger in 
the lobby afterwards. 

Russell Duerkson then 
presented three bills to the 

senate for consideration. Th,. 
first bill dealt with the cafeter- 
ia and a proposal to keep the 
serving decks open until 1:30 
p.m. on Saturdays for Sabbath 
dinner. It was suggested by 
SA President Glenn McElroy 
that the senators send a 
representative to speak with 
Earl Evans personally before 
voting through a bill requiting 

The second bill concerned 
senators taking over two Mon- 
day night worships (three 
points each) a semester in 
order to communicate better 
with the 

John Wilson Presents 
"Galapagos Island Wildlife' ' 

John Wilson, wildlife 
photographer and film pro- 
ducer, will narrate and pre- 
sent a filmed record of the 
Galapagos Island wildlife this 
Saturday night, March 31, at 8 
p.m. in the Physical Education 

The Galapagos, a collection 
of over 60 islands located west 
df Ecuador and scattered over 
some 23.000 miles of the 
Pacific Ocean, is the meeting 
place for converging warm 
and cold ocean currents, and 
as such has become the home 

of several intriguing varieties 
of wildlife. 

Wilson, with the help of his 
assistants, Janet Hohoda and 
Tui De Roy. has filmed Frigate 



Tropicbirds and sea-lions, 
scarlet crabs and Blue-footed 
Boobies. The film takes its 
viewers from Hood Island, 
exclusive nesting ground of 
the Galapagos Albatross, to 
the Alcedo Crater, home of the 
famed Galapagos Tortoise for 
which the islands are named, 
and finally to the top of Volcan 

Fernandina. for a breath- 
taking view of the crater lake 
and footage of the colonies of 
land iguanas and Galapagos 

The film is presented as part 
of the Southern College Artist 
Adventure Series. Admission 
is $2.50 for adults. $2.00 for 
children under 12. 52.00 for 
senior citizens, and $7.50 for a 
family ticket. (SC students are 
admitted free with valid ID 
card.) Other tickets may be 
purchased at the door.

Dear Editor. 

In regard to the letter 
written by Mr. South in the 
last issue of The Accent. I 
would like to say that I don't 
think that the students (or 
the faculty, for that matter) 
really hold any grudges a- 
gainst anyone regarding the 
retrenchment. It's just 
something that has to be 
done. When there's less 
money coming in (a direct 
result of dropping enroll- 

ment), there has to be less 
money going out. Granted, 
it may be a little hard to 
understand why we're put- 
ting up big. shiny new 
buildings while we fire 
teachers, and why we're 
helping to finance an organ 
that's bigger than most of 
our classrooms while we fire 
teachers, and why we're 
installing cable television so 
the sports nuts in Talge can 
monopolize the TV while 

we're firing teachers, but 
hey. it's still something that 
just/ids to be done . . . 

You know, times like this 
can get real emotional. 
That's why I liked the car- 
toon in the February 16 
issue: It made me laugh. If 
it wasn't for things like that, 
I think I'd cry.

The last bill Duerkson 
presented was a proposal to 
update the senate attendance 
policy making the rules more 
strict for senate attendance. 
DouE Walter gave an update 
on the Strawberry Festival, 
including a presentation of the 
graphics slides Bridget Knox 
has worked on for four weeks. 
The slides were considered 

Chairman Shim read his job 
descriptions for future SA 
officers, made faculty senate 
appointments for next year, 
and presented a list of his SA 
officers for next year. The 
Senate voted to accept the 
officers, but the vote is not 
binding until a quorum at- 
tends Senate. 

The Senate members will be 
having Sabbath School in Tha- 
tcher Hall this weekend, and 
they discussed what they were 

going to do and divided up 

President McElroy discussed 
SA chapel, the new Compu- 
graphic for The Southern Ac- 
cent, the upcoming SA Talent 
Show. College Days, the SA 
Six Flags trip, the A!A con- 
vention, and the Senators 
banquet, which will be held on 
April 23 instead of April 22 as 
listed on the calendar. 

The Senate then adjourned 
their unofficial meeting. 

GARFIELD® by Jim Davis 

Reflection Writing 

Like many other choices that 
,,e make in life, what we 
hoose to read is ultimately 
' r own decision. Each 
person has the responsibility 
, .r being his or her own 
tnsor of opening one book 
,nd not another. (Each person 
has the right to this respon- 
sibility, but that is another 
^vhole topic.) 

In the barber shop that 
,„mmer when I was five years 
„ld 1 had an experience that 
,,35 unique compared to any 
previous. My grandmother 
Icfi me in the care of two cigar 
smoking barbers and a couple 
„t" middle aged newspaper 
readers. She went off to run 
some errands and do things 
that grandmothers do. I was 
proud to be on my own. and 
life was good-very good. I 
was with the guys. 
What most men do in barber 
shops is read, smoke, and tell 
dirtv racial jokes about 
animals. My Grandmother. 

being a very devout Adventist. 
would not even walk me in 
front of a tavern, telling me 
that guardian angels never 
followed anyone into bars. (To 
this day. I sometimes imagine 
guardian angels hanging 
around outside pubs talking to 
each other.) But in her 
innocence she left me in a 
place of the same caliber. 

It was an average sort of 
place. The door was open. 
and because of the blinds, the 
sun made an abstract grid 
pattern on the formica floor 
which was covered with hair- 
trimmings and cigarette butts. 
The room was low-budget 
yellow, and was furnished 
with slippery red chairs. 
There was smoke and quiet 
laughter in the air. and every 
once in a while a gentle whisp 
of warm breeze would come in 
and stir them around a bit. 1 
got a piece of gum, and an 
occasional smile and pat on 

the head. Life was good. 

I also got a Playboy 
Magazine. Everyone else had 
a magazine or paper, so I 
naturally picked up the 
nearest piece of printed 
material-just being one of the 
guys. There were a few bursts 
of laughter from this action 
but it was good natured and I 
reveled in the attention. 
Slowly, the pages began to 
turn. Somewhere near the 
middle of the magazine I 
became truly fascinated. This 
was a totally new and different 
experience. Here were 
beautiful women with no 
clotlies and very friendly 
expressions. They were all 
looking at me. I can still 
remember smiling. They look- 
ed so silly without clothes. 


Just as luck would h; 
just like in the mo' 
was about the time grandma 
returned from her foraging 
weighted down with the fruit! 

of her effort and capitol. She 
was not amused. In fact, she 
was very embarrassed. I'm 
not sure if this was because 
she was ashamed of me, or 
because of the roar of laughter 
that broke out when she 
exclaimed, "Oh!" 
Looking back on the situation 
it is easy to see that she 
handled the scene with some- 
thing approaching true fin- 
esse. Apart from her initial 
outburst, 1 don't recall a word 
she said. She closed the 
magazine, but left it in my lap. 
There was only the sound of 
sissors snipping. I can still 
remember learning, in gentle 
but no uncertain terms, that 
this was not the kind of 
magazine that a good Chris- 
tian looked at. The men who 
made these magazines did not 
have the same beliefs that I 
did, and they would lead me 
astray. Not only would this 
type of magazine lead me 
away from Jesus, but there 

would be a spanking like never 
before if I was caught with one 
again. From then on, I had a 
choice. It was years before 
her philosophical reasoning 
made anywhere near as much 
sense as her concrete law. 

There are thousands of 
publications in print that can 
be purchased and read by 
anyone who has literacy and a 
couple bucks to spend. Some 
of these are masterpieces of 
writing and art of one form or 
another; others are plain old 
pollution. Some folks will 
argue that certain magazines, 
while they depict the human 
body in ways that should be 
very private, or even in ways 
that are purely degrading, do 
carry articles written by the 
best contemporary authors of 
the day. Well. ..everyone, in 
their own mind, knows exactly 
why he or she (it goes for girls 
too) opens a magazine. 

As always, and as it should 
be, there is a choice.

• Nurses Dedicated 

Fifty-one freshman student 
nurses from Southern College 
dedicated their lives to the 
delivery of Christian nursing 
care on March 17 during a 
candlelight ceremony in the 
Collegedale Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. 

Jan Haluska, assistant 
professor of English, pre- 
sented the dedication address, 
entitled "Dedicated to 
What?" He spoke of the need 
to commit oneself to a life goal 
no matter what the occupa- 

tion. "Thieves, winos. every- 
body is dedicated to some- 
thing. The difference you 
make in life will be what you 
decide to dedicate yourself 
to," he said.

Six Flags 

On Sunday April 8 the 
Student Association will be 
sponsoring a trip to Six Flags 
amusement park. The bus will 
leave from Wright Hall at 8:00 
a.m. that morning. A sign-up 
sheet will be posted at the 
Student Center desk. 
The admission price is $12.50 
per person. If you need 
transportation the charge is an 
additional $2.00. Unlike the 
last trip, this time you have to 

pay when you sign-up. 

The sign-up sheet will be up 
by the end of this week. The 
deadline for signing up is 
April 6. 

According to Peggy Branden-

planned to give the students 
who participated in the walk- 
a-thon a chance to go to the 
park and also because the trip

will hold a Suzuki Play-In on 
Sunday, April 1, at 3 p.m. in 
Ackerman Auditorium on the 
campus of Southern College. 
The Play-In will be an 
opportunity for all Suzuki 
String students in the 
Chattanooga area to come 
together and enjoy playing the 
Suzuki repertoire. Included in 
the repertoire for this Play-In 
are pieces from Volume 1-4 of 
the Suzuki books. All teachers 
in the Suzuki String program

"Double Violin Concerto in D 
Minor" while the students 
perform the violin 1 part. 

All Suzuki String students of 
all ages and levels are invited 
to participate. Parents are 
also welcome . Participants

People get odd ideas about majoring in English. "All English majors 
can do is terch," they say. "Besides, you can't find a job teaching 
English." That's two mistakes. 

FACTl An English major prepares you for much more than 
teaching. For example SMC English major LIndley 
Richert went from writing for J\>i; yVj | |l Street Journal to 
running his own multimillion dollar information business. 
He credits his major with giving him the basis he needed 
for success. (You can ask him about it when he comes to 
campus April 5 for the Anderson Lecture Series.) An 
English major-or second major-looks very good to 
schools of medicine and law, too. 

■ ACT: English teachers win jobs. In the past ten years we have 
placed every English graduate who wanted to teach. Last 
spring one graduate had five academy calls. Another has 
just accepted a midyear call to an academy which will 
pay for the rest of her schooling. 

If your future looks a little fuzzy, maybe you should consider

1. Chicago White Sox. 
Although Cy IToung winner 
LaMarr HoyI has been 
roughed to shreds this spring, 
he is still a part of the best 
proven starting staff in the 
American League. Along with 
Hoyt are Richard Dotson. 
Floyd Bannister, and Tom 
Seaver, who looks funny in a 
White Sox uniform for some 
strange reason. The starters 
are so rich. Britt Burns has 
moved to the bullpen. 

2. Oakland A's. The A's 
acquired short reliever Bill 
Cavdill. starter Carry Soren-

Bochte to add to a team with 
Ricky Henderson, Carney

The starting pitching depth, 
though, is weak. 

3. California Angels. Reggine 
Jackson has to prove that he's 
not washed up. Doug DeCin-

feared hitters in the league. 
Tommy John wants to win

ability to carry a team. Yet, 
there are a number of pro- 
blems, mainly injuries. 

4. Texas Rangers. Last year's 
four starting pitchers com- 
bined for a 1.80 ERA in spring 
training, but the bullpen is not 
very good at all. 

5. Kansas City Royals. 
George Brett. Hal McRae, and 
Dan Quisenberry are the only 
stars on this team that aren't 
on drugs. The Royals will 
miss those who were made 
examples of for their miscon- 
duct. The young guys and the 
other returners must put the 
ugly spotlight behind them 
and play ball. 

6. Minnesota Twins. The 
Twins are capable of scoring 
runs and they also are good 
defensively, but besides Ron

College Buys Supreme 
Broom Company 

In early April, Southern 
College of Seventh-day Ad- 
ventists will finalize the pur- 
chase of Supreme Broom 
Company from McKee Baking 
Company in order to expand 
the student labor possibilities 
on campus. 

The broom company was 
originally built by the college 
some 60 years ago and run as 
a college industry until 1976, 
when it was sold to McKee's. 

"The economic picture has 
changed significantly since 
that time," said Richard 
Reiner, senior vice president 
for finance at Southern 
College. "We sold it to the 
bakery at a time when jobs for 
students went begging be- 
cause there were so many 
employment possibilities at 
local enterprises. Now be- 
cause of the high adult unem- 

ployment, our students are 
finding it more and more 
difficult to find jobs that can 
help them finance their educa- 

Up to $40,000 a year will be 
earned by students who will 
enter jobs in the broom com- 
pany after the repurchase, he 

The college will relocate the 
broom company into a current- 
ly under-utilized storage 
building on Industrial Drive 
between the CoUegedale Nur- 
sery and Angelica Laundry. 
McKee Baking Company will 
retain the land and brick 
building that now houses the 
broom company. 

"The broom company has an 
excellent track record of pro- 
fits, too." said Reiner, "and 
we feel that this decision is a 
wise one for the long-range 
interests of the college." 

Richert Lectures On U.S. Bond 

Fahrbach Promotes 

Dan Fahrbach, current 
writer and editor of Insight 
magazine, visited the campus 
of Southern College last week, 
March 27 and 28. While on 
campus. Fahrbach spoke to 
various classes, including 
Creative Writing, Article 
Writing. and several 
Composition classes. He also 
had time to meet with several 
persons on an individual 
basis, as well as speaking to a 
large group of both students 
and faculty members at a 
special luncheon held for him, 
sponsored by the Southern 
Writers' Club. 

The purpose of Fahrbach's 
visit was to encourage poten- 
tial writers to turn their talents 
toward short stories that could 
be published by the magazine. 
"Everyone gets the idea that 
anything that you write for 
insight has to include church. 

or real serious religious 
themes," stated Fahrbach. 
"Well, we have a motto: 'If 
it's serious, it should he 
funny; if it's very serious, it 
should be very funny.' 

Fahrhack explained to the 
various groups he spoke with 
the procedure that each article 
the magazine receives goes 
through, and also told which 
types of articles the magazine 
was interested in. "We don't 
want 'blood-n-guts' stories.' 
he said. "We don't need the 
ones where somebody's mom 
dies in the end or something; 
we get enough of those." 
Fahrbach also mentioned the 
amounts paid for stories: 
currently, stories can bring 
between $50 and SlSO. 
depending on the length and 
how many times the person 
has written for the magazine.

2/SOUTHERN ACCENT April 5, 1984 


At times, life seems to be stalemated and 
we become discouraged, feeling like we're 
not making any progress. This seems 
especially true near the end of the school 
year, when certain goals seem so distant, 
it's times like this that the temptation to quit 
comes to mind quiet often. 

Although the future seems too big to 
conquer, it is not. As students here at SC we 
have all conquered, we have all made 
progress in some area and its the progress 
that's important. 

A Southern sage once wrote this prayer: 


I'm not what I ought to be; 

I'm not what I want to be; 

I'm not what I'm going to be; 

But thanks, Lord, 

I'm not what I used to be. Amen." 

Winston Churchill is widely acknowledged 
as one of the great men of the twentieth 
century. His leadership in World War II is 
common knowledge, taught in History 
classes throughout the United States. But. 
what is not common knowledge is that 
Churchill showed little promise as a student. 
In fact, one semester Churchill ranked last 
when grades were posted at the college 
where he attended. Attempting to enroll at 
Sandhurst Military Academy, he failed the 
entrance examination twice. 

What was the secret to his success? It was 
his determination to overcome his failure. 
Used correctly, failure can teach us lessons

Dear Editor: 

It is the election year, a time 
when many of the Adventist 
persuasion decide to shun 
everything political and let the 
rest of the country decide who 
will run the United States. 

I feel that is not only our 
moral duty but our Christian 
duty to take part in the 
upcoming presidential elec- 
tions. It is possible to be in 
the world and not of the world. 
We must be aware of what is 
going on around us. We can't 
just float through life letting 

other people decide for u 
> what's going ( 

very important that in the 
upcoming elections we study 
the candidates for ourselves; 
don't let others make up your 
mind for you. Study the 
candidates and make an 
educated choice as for who 
you think best represents you, 
your relegion. and your choice 
of work. 

Many people feel it is not our 
place to vote in elections. I 
guess they have forgotten that 
people fought and died so that 
we would have the right to 
claim the right to vote. All 
that this country stands for is 
based on the right of the 
individual to take part in the 
governing body. If you don't 

think your vote counts, you're 
wrong. If everyone felt that 
way, we would have no vote! 
Our country was also based on 
Religious Freedom, but 
nobody shuns that. The two 
are very strongly correlated. 
You can't fight for one and 
ignore the other. 

It is important for you and 
what you stand for to vote and 
take part in what is going on 
around you. But remember, 
make up your own mind, study 
the candidates for yourself, 
and make an educated vote. 
Your vote does count.

Amazing Grace! 

Let's suppose for the sake of 
illustration, that there has 
been no provision made for 
humans to be forgiven for 
their sins. 

Think back over the many 
times you've sinned and fallen 
short of God's law. Each one 
of your transgressions, in its 
self, could keep you from 

Next, prject yourself forward 
in time, along with all your 
unforgiven sins, to the point in 
time after the millinium, when 
God brings heaven to earth. 

See yourself outside of the 
New Jerusalem walls. You are 
doomed. Time has run out. 
You stand there in the dark- 
ness along with Satan and his 
forces, both human and spirit- 
ual, and realize that you have 
missed out on eternity. 

The deep, sinking feeling 
that you will soon cease to 
exist bears down on you. 
Because of your sins, in a few 
moments you will receive your 

You squint into the bright- 
ness of the golden city and see 

huge glorious mansions. You 
see angels perfect and beauti- 
ful. You see how real God and 
heaven really 


You • 


understand how cheaply you 
sold out. You are lost. 
Forever lost. 

As you stand there looking 
into the city, you see one man 
who never sinned. He alone 
endured every earthly hard- 
ship, trial and temptation. 
He, alone, never sinned. He, 
alone, belongs in heaven. 
Your eyes meet his. His eyes 
show his deep love for you and 

they share with you the deep 
anguish of your fate. 

You scream to him, "Please 
save me! I'm so sorry! Oh, 
Please Save me!" 

Instantly you find yourself 
within the golden City's 
immense walls. You are 
saved. You will live in peace 
and happiness for eternity. 
You look to thank the man 
with the loving eyes who 
saved you from your fate, and 
he's gone. 

You peer i 

into the evil 

heaven's walls. And there m 
the place, where moments 
before you had been standing, 
is that perfect man. He loves 
you so much that he has given 
you his place in eternal glory. 
He will die your death. You 
cannot comprehend this ulti- 

Of course, by the time God 
brings heaven to earth, it will 
be too late. But, Jesus had 
already died your death. And 
right now he is willing to trade 
his perfection and place in 
eternity with you, for you. 

Right now. Amazing grace!

Put a 1 by each statement which you feel is generally true. 

The heart is usually wiser than the head. 

I can get more out of a worship service in a meadow or a grove than 

in a regular church building. 

Casual parties are more natural and more fun than formal ones. 

The purest communication is the silence of two walking side by 


Love is a feeling; no one can explain it, and attempts to do so just 

cheapen it. 

I feel more comfortable in jeans, (even a stiff, new pair) than I do in 

formal clothes. 

I would rather have a job as a tour guide through an old, mysterious 

castle than as a guide in the Smithsonian museum. 

Primitive peoples are generally happier than those in more indust- 
rialized countries. 

Natural things are better than chemically derived things. 

All you need is love. 


1-3 You have a cool head and a classical outlook. This summer ENGL

find a common touch with them. 

4-7 Your outlook is a balance between romantic and classical. ENGL 
337 this summer can deepen your understanding of your romantic 
side while introducing you to the Victorians, who struggled to 
solidify a balance like yours. 

8-10 You are an incurable romantic. For you, ENGL 337 can be a 

delightful encounter with romanticism, followed by mature 

reflection on how to be an idealist in the real world.

Collegedale Hospital Plan Delayed 

Plans for a hospital in 
Collegedale hit another snag 
last week. Officials from 
Adventist Health Systems/ 
Sunbelt along with an execu- 
tive from Erlanger Medical 
Center in Chattanooga were 
prepared to testify before 
state health planners in Nash- 
ville, hoping their joint ven- 
ture for a hospital in College- 
dale would receive a more 
favorable reception than a 
proposal rejected in March of 

But before' the testimony 
could begin in the appeal 

hearing before the Tennessee 
Health Facilities Commission, 
the administrative law judge 
for the hearing disallowed 
most of the planned 

State attorney Uurie Doll- 
hofer offer a motion to limit 
testimony for AHS's case to 
the facts of the original certifi- 
cate of need application, 
which did not include the joint 
venture with Erlanger Hospi- 
tal. After Judge Charles 
Sullivan granted the motion, 
the commission voted to defer 
the appeal hearing. Attorneys 
for sides said there is no time 

limit for AHS to make the next 

The original move by 
Adventist Health Systems to 
form a joint partnership with 
Erianger Medical Center took 
many people by surprise. In a 
special board meeting on 
March 26. the Chattanooga- 
Hamilton County Health 
Commission (Erlanger's 
board) voted to give up 66 of 
their 770 approved hospital 
beds, if the THFC approved 
AHS's appeal. In return. AHS 
and Erlanger would form a 
cooperative agreement on 
running the Collegedale hos- 

The joint venture was to be a 
way of getting around the 
THFC's arguement that there 
were too many hospital beds 
in Hamilton County. At that 
hearing. AHS argued that 
there was not an excess buy a 
mal-distribution of beds. 

Erianger officals said that 
moving hospital beds to the 
Collegedale area would be a 
more efficient distribution and 
would help get around the 
THFC's concern with over- 

But state officials said the 
announcement of the joint 

venture came too close to the 
hearing date to allow time for 
other hospitals in the area to 

According to the Chattan- 
ooga Times, THFC vice chair- 
man Barbara Outhier said the 
proposal should have been 
disclosed sooner. "I think the 
commission is being asked to 
plan on the spot" without 
input from other hospitals, she 

AHS attorney David Steed 
said he would be discussing 
the next move with his clients.

Ornithology Class Visits Florida 

During the recent spring 
break last month the Omithol- 
oev class along with their 
instructor, E. O. Grundset. 
and lab assistant Dave 
Mafhevvson, travelled some 
2685 miles throughout the 
state of Florida in search ol 
birds indiginous to the state 
plus other birds which winter 

The class visited such 
well-known cites as Cape Can- 
averal. Payne's Prairie Wild- 
life Refuge. Merritt Island, 
Loxahatchee, Sanibel Island 
and also lesser known spots 
such as Black Point with its 
extensive marshes, Boca 
Grande Beach, Lake Tohopek- 
aliga. and other places too 
numerous to mention. 

Using binoculars and tele- 
scopes the class was able to 
sleuth out such rariries as the 
Golden Plover, Swallow-tailed 
Kites, the Seaside Sparrow 
(but not the Dusky Seaside 
Sparrow which is virtually 
extinct), the Virginia Rail, and 
Smooth-billed Anis. Of course 
there were great aggregarions 
of typically Florida birds: 
Great Egrets, Sandhill Cranes 
L Double-crested Cormorants, 
j Great Blue Herons, and White 
Ibises. There was the amaz- 

ing sight of hundreds of these 
birds perched around a pond 
on the famous Faxahatchee 
Strand in the Everglades, and 
at the rookery in the middle of 
a lake near the police station 
at Venice. 

It was not the sole object of 
the trip to 'rack up' as many 
birds as possible; another 
purpose was to notice the 
changing vegitation habitats 
and how environmental fac- 
tors affect and determine the 
distribution of these birds. 
The class became familiar 
with numerous dominant 
plants, other floral and ecolo- 
gical aspects. In their reports, 
each student made daily lists, 
area lists, trip list^, and 
described certain birds and 

Since nesting in Florida 
begins in February, the class 
observed the nestlings of Bald 
Eagles, Great Blue Herons, 
Mallards, and Common Moor 
Hens. Of the 146 species 
observed, the class fondly 
recalls such intimate incidents 
as: allowing the Scrub Jays to 
feed right out of their hands, 
watching Ospreys attacking 
the soaring Bald Eagles at 
Payne's Prairie, the close-up 
view of the Hermit Thrush, 

and the magnificent Sandhill 
Cranes parading in a field 
near Kissimmee-and who can 
forget the American Bittern 
(totally unafraid) posing with- 
in five feet of the van. 

The trip was not without its 
moments of crises-such as the 
time when nearly all the 
transmission fluid leaked out 
of the van (fortunately we 
reached a friendly Exxon 
station just in time), and that 
horrible moment when we 
were flying down the inter- 

state and the second tank of 
gas wouldn't 'engage' (it 
finally did after some maneu- 
vering), and the amazing 
places where we ate and slept. 

In Orlando the class visited 
the Audubon House where 
injured birds are rehabilitated 
and watched the caretakers 
teaching a Bald Eagle to fly 
again-a job requiring dedica- 
tion and much patience. 

The last day of the trip was 
spent on Discovery Island at 
Disney World where some of 

the world's largest 
are located. Here is located 
the only breeding colony of 
Scarlet Ibises in Florida. Just 
recently the research program 
for saving the Dusky Seaside 
Sparrow has been moved to 
Discovery Island-Wait Disney 
will direct some of its vast 
funds into this worthy ornith- 
ological project. 

The class will savor and 
remember for a long time this 
adventure and introduction to 
the world of birds.

In mid-March, the Senate 
Finance Committee approved 
a two-year extension of the tax 
free status for employers with 
tuition benefits. Previous 
legislation giving tax breaks 
had expired in December. 

Earlier in the month, 
committees had approved the 
tax exemption of such fringe 
benefits as reduced-cost hous- 
ing for faculty and tuition- 
remission programs at coll- 
eges and universities. 

In future action, legislators 
are expected to adopt propos- 
als affecting deferred- 
compensation plans and limit- 
ed use of industrial-develop-

The Vespers program this 
Friday night will be presented 
by the Southern College 
Collegiate Chorale. Under the 
direction of Don C. Runyan, 
the Choral will perform 
"Hymns of the Church". 
The present Church Hymnal 
is over 40 years old and no 
longer meets the needs of the 
church. There are no spirit- 
I uals, no folk songs and no 
gospel music. 

Along with the theme of the 
concert. Dr. Runyan has 

chosen songs which are pre- 
sently in the hymnal and some 
that will be in the new hymnal. 

Some of the songs included 
will be; "Savior Like A Shep- 
herd Lead Us," "For All The 
Saints." and "It Is Well With 
My Soul." The song Jeru- 
salem My Happy Home," will 
include a solo by David 

Dr. Runyan said that "the 
combination of the old tunes 
with the new should add to an 
enjoyable and inspirational 
concert." The concert will be 
presented in the church at 
8:00 p.m. this Friday night. 

The last cafeteria pizza and 
movie of the school year will 
be Saturday night April 7. 

The movie will be "The 
Miricle of the White Stall- 
ions." It is a Disney film 
about the Lipazzon stallions 
during Worid War II. And 
how the U.S. army helped 
rescue them from the Ger- 
mans and the Russians. The 
movie also contains several 
performances by the worid 
famous stallions. 

The doors to the cafeteria will 
open at 7:45 p.m. and the 
movie will start at 8:15 p.m.

Southern Cynic 

By Ganhy Curlls 

They were walking through 
the mall. Nothing special in 
that. Just checking out the 
women, and hoping there 
would be a sale on Arrow 
shirts or Levis. 

"Hey. man is she beautifull" 
The first guy had his sleeves 
rolled up and was wearing 
Polo cologne. "I mean, she is 
very good looking." 

"Yeh. and she looks like she 
knows it too." The second 
guy had his hands shoved in 
his jeans. He had his head 
leaned back a bit. and a half 
smile was trying to hold itself 
on his face even when he 
couldn't think of anything 

"The only reason she knows 

It, IS because every other guy 
drools at her the same way 
we are." The third guy was 
carrying a freshly bought 
cassette. He was swinging it 
so that everyone around would 
know that he was the one 
spending money. 

"She probably wouldn't be 
any fun to go out with. I hate 
talking to chicks who think 
they're models." The second 
guy was hoping to catch her 

The first guy said, "Hey, 
let's stop this and have a 
drink. Besides, there are 
always cute chicks that work in 
this place." 

"Sure. Fine. Sounds OK to 
me. Ifthere's cute chicks let's 

get a drink." The thurd guy 
was open to suggestions, and 
he was tired of swinging his 
cassette around. 

They sat down and drank 
their drinks. (Ooooooh caff- 

The first guy was feeling 
compassionate. He said, 
"Man, I feel sorry for that giri 
at the register. It must be 
touch to live with a hare-lip." 

Always thinking of dating, 
the second guy asked, "Do 
you think anyone ever asks her 

The third guy had the 
answer. "Sure! I bet every 
gimp in Chattanooga is after 

He was very clever, and they 

had a very good laugh. 

Being the eagle eye of the 
three, the first guy spotted 
what next walked into the fast 
food place. "Alright, what do 
you think of her--don't turn 
around you idiots, wait 'til she 
goes by." 

She went by, and probably 
couldn't help but over-hear 

"Well?" The first guy liked 
her, but didn't want to say so 
until he knew what the others 

"Eh. she's OK. I don't think 
I'd ask her out." So the poor 
girl would never get a chance 
to learn what kind of a guy the 
second guy was. 

"Too much make-up." The 


third guy was chewing his 
straw and staring at her 

Back in the mall the three 
practiced strutting and laugh- 
ing too loud. They were pretty 
good at it. They got people to 
look at them. Having people 
look at you is good for your 
self image. 

As they went by the record 
store, there was a new release 
blaring out through the doors. 
The second guy said, "Wow, I 
think 1 like that giri singing." 
The third guy was ripe for an 
argument, "I thought you 
said you didn't like her. 
Remember when we heard 
that other song by her yes-

Faculty Senate Discusses Curriculum 

By Jerry KovalskI 

The last Faculty Senate 
meeting of the year was held 
Monday April 9. Repori:s 
from the various committees 

The first report came from 
the General Education com- 
mittee by Larry Hansen. 
Hansen said that they were 
going through the book Edu- 
cation and were giving reports 
on sections hoping to find 
guidelines they could follow 
in setting the requirements 
for general education. 

The loans and Scholarship 
Subcommittee reported, by 
Laurel Wells, said that they 
had considered 171 students 
for grants and loans for the 
school and 107 of those had 
been assisted. She also re- 
ported that those 107 had 
received S4.200 in loans and 
^57.375 in grants. Institu- 
tional and private grants and 
loans were reported to have 
corne to $434,885 this year 
and federal grants and loans 
came to S2.320.074. She 
also reported that last year 
1-323 students received fi- 
nancial aid and that a 
ed to 54,306.407. 

Ben McArthur presented 
the report from the Writing 
Subcommittee. He said that 
they had sent surveys to the 
teachers that taught "W" or 
writing courses, to "see 
what they were doing and 
what they think." It is also 
discussing adding new 
classes to the "W" section. 

Carol Haynes told about the 
Teaching Learning Center 
and gave some statistics 
concerning that facility. The 
Center is open 48 hours a 
week and since last Septem- 
ber over 563 students have 
used their services. She also 
reported that during the 
month of March, students 
were in the TLC for a total of 
725 hours. 

Cyril Futcher made his 
report for the Academic 
Affiars Committee. The first 
thing he reported was that 
the "W" course require- 
ments for as. BM, and BBA 
degrees should be changed 
so that all three of the 
classes would come from the 
major area. The senate 
voted that this proposal be 
sent to the General Educa- 
tion Subcommittee for re- 
Industrial Education is going 

to be offered next year. It is 
a one-year certificate in 
Trade Competence and will 
have three areas of empha- 
sis. These areas are electri- 
cal wiring, plumbing, and 
refrigeration/air condition- 
ing. It is a practical course, 
Futcher reported but no new 
courses are going to be 

Everette Schlisner reported 
for the Student Services 
Committee. He proposed 
that there be no classes on 
July 4 because of the Nation- 
al significance of that day. 
The faculty voted in approval 
of this hoping that the 
students would use this time 
to catch up on homework. 
Also proposed was that 
meetings during the Week 
Of Prayer be only on Tues- 
day and Thursday morning 
and Monday through Friday 
night. This was because of 
poor attendance and the lack 
of the speakers to get to 
meet the students person- 
ally. The senate voted in 
approval of this. 


2/SOUTHERN ACCENT/ April 12, 1984' 


Lord. Give me patie 

. NOWni 

! all have to do something we don't like. 
Whether it be a job. an assignment, or anything else. 
Eventually, we all must do things we dislike or even hate. 

One of those things for me is staying up late because of 
other people's forgetfulnessor lack of consideration. 
Another thing I dislike very much is really depending on 
someone who doesn't come through. Then I'm left holding 
the bag. 1 could go on about a few more things that bother 
me, but I'm sure you get the point. 

Because 1 am human it is hard for me to forgive other people 
for their mistakes, though 1 sincerely want their forgiveness 
when my humanness gets the best of me. 

When we stop to think about it that way, it is easier to 
be patient and forgiving. This is not to say that it is easy, just 
a little easier. 

I know that for me, it is very hard to hold back my hasty 
opinion of the faults of others, but I'm trying. Every day I 
fmd some new way to test my patience. And every day I 
grow a little bit better that way. I'm sure that it is just a little 
bit, but I'm also sure that I am getting belter. There are 
times when I slip, but if the Lord can forgive me, I can learn 
to forgive others as well.

College Forced To Sell Themselves Better 

Like their counterparts in the 
business world, college offic- 
ials are realizing the impor- 
tance of sound marketing in 
their quest for students. 

And they have to, if colleges 
are to avoid closing and de- 
creasing services in the fu- 
ture. Since a peak in 1977, the 
number of high school gradu- 
ates has been declining. That 
pool is expected to drop by 14 
percent during the period of 
1981-1986 from 2.9 million to 
2.5 million. In 1988, a slight 
increase will raise the number 
to 2.6 million. Another low in 
1992 (2.3 million) will be felt 
before the number of high 
school graduates climbs in 
2000 lo almost 2.7 million. 
(These predictions are based 
on a report by the Western 
Interstate Commission for 
Higher Education, the Teach- 
ers Insurance and Annuity 
Association and the College 

In addition to doing their 
homework, college recruit- 
ment techniques are taking on 
a more sophisticated glow -- 

just look at the snazzy, four- 
color publications and adver- 
tisements for proof. 

In the print media, promoting 
a good image is done through 
logos, slogans, graphics and 
carefully chosen photos and 
text. Many colleges tout 
successful alumni-particular- 
lycelebrities-in their publica- 
tions to catch and hold poten- 
tial students' attention. 

Extra efforts are not cheap. 
At the Jensen Beach campus 
of the Florida Institute of 
Technology, an estimated 
$750-5900 is spent on each 
freshman in the class of '88 -- 
"fairly typical for a private 
college," said marketing di- 
rector John C. Hutchins. 

Before spending money on 
any efforts, however, admis- 
sion and marketing officials- 
like their business counter- 
parts-do research on the col- 
lege's strengths, make pros- 
pective student lists and do 
perception surveys. 

One of the valuable tools a 
marketing researcher utilizes, 
is the College Board exams. 

The board, which tests nearly 
3 million students every 
makes available grades, class 
rank, college and career plai 
interests and awards, ethnic 
background and other demo- 
graphic information of high 
school juniors and seni( 
Schools pay a fee, plu; 
cents per name, for each 
student list. 

Private consultants are 
used in college marketing, as 
are computers. At the F.I. T-'? 
School of Applied Technolog)', 
a computer stores answers to 
common questions by pros- 
pective students for quick 
response by admissions coun- 

Conferences, workshops 
publications from the Council 
for Advancement and Support 
of Education also aid college 
recruitment improvement p 

For their part, high school 
students studying college " 
tions can make wise decisions 
by checking with guidance 
counselors and alumni, 
ing campuses and reading 
college guides.

•The President has signed 
into law The Sunday Laws 
gi]l," As those words came 
over the radio. I was snatched 
from early morning groggi- 
ness. At first 1 was sure I was 
dreaming, but as details of the 
signing came from my clock 
radio, I bolted from my bed 
and raced to the window to 
check for falling stars or 
possibly an earthquake. 

As 1 stood by my window, I 
shuddered at the possibility of 
imprisonment and persecu-

be graduating in a year. I 
could get a job and get 
married, but not now. There 

wasn't time. I will spend the 
rest of my life running, I 
thought. Running from peo- 
ple I used to call my friends. 
Men with dogs and rifles 
would hunt me like wild game. 
Quickly I packed a few 
necessities into my overnight 
bag. With no idea of where I 
was going or where I would 
get my next meal, I set out on 
my journey. 

Around noon I began to get 
hungry. I spotted a truck stop 
not far away . 1 felt somewhat 
intimidated as 1 entered. 
Sitting on stools, slouched 
over a bar. were rough-looking 
truck drivers. They snickered 
as 1 was turned away for not 
wearing the mark of the beast. 

I walked on for hours, my feet 
aching. I wondered if it was 
all worth it. Why didn't I just 
give in? Nothing can be worth 
all this pain and hardship. I 

Suddenly I felt a sharp pain 
shoot from my ankle all the 
way up my leg. I collapsed in 
a ditch and soon fell asleep. 

While I was asleep it was as if 
Jesus had come down to talk 
with me. As we talked. He 
explained three theories or 
opinions most of us have about 
the end of time. 
(1) He said that some of us 
have difficulty distinguishing 
fantasy from reality. Jesus' 
second coming is a reality. It 
will happen. Jesus said so. 

We have taken it for granted 
that He will come. Oh, sure, 
we talk about it and say He 
will come very soon, but how 
many of us feel that the 
second coming will occur in 
our lifetime? And wouldn't it 
be a lot easier on us if it 

(2) Sometimes we are afraid 
to face reality. Many times we 
focus on the painful. scar>' 
part of the end of time. And 
that's what I did in the 
hypothetical situation above. I 
was concentrating on the hor- 
ror and pain rather than the 
honor and gain of actually 
sun'iving the end of time..

Glenn McElroy and Denise 
Read will be starring in the 
musical. Glenn, who is Pro- 
fessor Henry Higgins in the 
play depicts an expert linguist 
who finds Eliza Doolittle 
(Denise) outside of an opera, 
selling flowers while he takes 
notes on how the people are 
speaking. Eliza, who speaks 
English with a "Cockney ac- 
cent" (considered the low- 
class of English-speaking 
people) goes to Professor Hig- 
gins and wants to have lessons 
on how to speak English 
properly. Whereby Professor 
higgins changes Eliza from a 
' 'flower lady' ' to a ' 'fair 

Mr. Orlo Gilbert, production 
manager of "My Fair Lady", 
gives an in-depth view of what 
the play conveys to its aud- 
ience. He says, "It's based on 

the way people are treated 
because of their backgroud. 
because of their speech, and 
because of their financial 
status. It points out the 
extremes that we have in 
society, of how we are labled 
and classed just because you 
speak a certain way, or dress a 
certain way, or of where you 
live in a certain part of town." 
certain part of town. " ' 

On the history of the 
production of "My Fair 
Lady", if is in itself a classic. 
The play has a powerful 
message for its audience, even 
though it is in comedy. The 
play was adapted to music by 
Allen J. Lerner and Fredrick 
Lowe from George Bernard 
Shaw who wrote the original 
"Pygmalion" on class struc- 
ture. Allen Lerner wrote the 
lyrics for it and Fredrick Lowe 
wrote the music, making it 
now "My Fair Lady". It's 
first performance was in 1956 
in New York City and sup- 
posedly, up until the "Sound 

of Music", had the greatest 
number of performances. 
"No where through the play 
does it mention, "my fair lady' 
but is only inferred in the 
notes of the tune "My Fair 
Lady" in the overture -- if you 
miss it you'll have a tough 
time figuring out why it is 
called "My Fair Lady", Mr. 
Gilbert informed us. 

There are some very choice 
songs in the play that you 

"Show Me", The Rain in 
Spain", I Could Have Danced 
All Night" , Grown Accus- 
tomed to Her Face", and the 
favorite "Hymn to Hymn". 

Everyone has been working 
hard on the play since the 
beginning of this semester. 
Actual rehearsing started 
right after Spring Break and 
has been at full speed since. 
Tickets are on sale now for 
$3.50 at the Student Center. 
The other two performances 
will be Monday, April 16 and 
Tuesday, April 17 at 8:00 p.m. 
in the Academy Auditorium.

from ihe 19^3.84 schedule 
will be reinslaled next school 
year. Humanities 205. recent- 
ly reduced from 4 credits to 3 
f1 renamed -Arts and 
MWF both semesters. 

The humanities class (area 
"•J), required for the honors 
program and viewed as parti- 

cularly helpful for those stu- 
dents aiming toward graduate 
school, seeks to answer such 
questions as these: What are 
the basic directions of thought 
that have influenced world 
culture and history? Which 
were the most creative centur- 
ies, and why? How do music, 
literature, painting and archi- 
tecture interrelate? How is 
the Master Creator's hand 

seen in all this? 

Other changes in the History 
schedule for next year include 
a couple of consolidations. 
HIST 376, 377. 378. and 465 
are being dropped from the 
catalog, to be replaced by 
HIST 386. "Foundations of 
Modern Culture." and HIST 
389. "Vienna to Vietnam." 

The Art Department contin- 
ues to offer a full major. It is 

true that the total number ot 
hours offered by the depart- 
ment was reduced in 1983. but 
a full thirty-hour major is still 
being offered by two qualified 
and experienced teachers. 

English has discontinued the 
class known as "Literature 
and Life." and has incorporat- 
ed some of its aims among 
those of "Approaches to Liter- 
ature." This dep.-rtment. 
incidentally, continues to re- 
ceive telephone calls seeking 
English majors ready to fill 
teaching positions. 

In the Communications 
Department, the major in

Dear Editor. 

During the past four years 
while attending Southern

about writing a letter to the 
editor, but never felt compell- 
ed strongly enough to do so. 
Now I am taking the opportun-

due recognition.

mendable teaching he has

wagging of many pious indivi-

damaging his credibility and 
self respect. He knows how to 
speak to an issue and with 
striaghtforwardness and 
honesty in his approach. 

Knowing that he has a 
purpose in life. Elder Grant 
has been unweilding in his 
effevescent and humanistic 
personality. While attending 
twt classes that he has taught, 
I have found him to be very 

inspirational and far from 
boring. Elder Grant has made 
a very impressionable mark on 
the campus of Southern

people have been influenced 
and guided by his practical 
advice and words of wisdom 
for the untimeless hours of

strength. She did not seem to

desperately that 1 could say 
something to comfort them, 
but I knew 1 couldn't interfere.

what this man must be going

couple and, amazingly enough 
say they were smiling at each

surrounded them only mo-

Time Out 

The National Basketball 
Association's second season is 
underway, and not a moment 
too soon. It can be argued that 
the NBA's regular season is 
too long and pointless. It can 
also be argued that the new 
play-off format, which was 
expanded from 1 2 teams to the 
present 16 is a bad joke and 
unjust to teams with superior 
records like Boston and Los 
Angeles who have to play the 
first round in the play-offs. 
But first, let's reflect on the 
1 that has just ended. 


surprised everyone. The Utah 
Jazz with first-year coach 
Frank Layden conquered the 
Midwest Division title, while 
the Dallas Mavericks and 
coach Dick Motta finished two 

games behind. These two 
have qualified for the playoffs 
for the first time in the history 
of each of their respective 

The NBA's number one flop 
was also in the Midwest 
Division. The San Antonio 
Spurs. After coming two 
games from the League's 
championship series last year, 
they fired coach Stan Alberk 
(who promptly guided the 
New Jersey Nets to a playoff 
spot). The Spurs could never 
get it in gear and missed (he 
playoffs with a 37-45 record. 

The most improved teams 
this year besides Utah and 
Dallas were the Detroit Pis- 
tons, the Boston Celtics, the 
New York Knicks! and the 
Portland Trailblazers. De- 

troit's Kelly Tripucka. Bill 
Lambeer and Isaiah Thomas, 
this year's MVP in the All-Star 
game, each enjoyed pheno- 
menal seasons. 

Boston finished with the 
league's best record (62-20). 
the best home record (33-8), 
and the best road record 
(29-12). All this with first-year 
coach K.C. Jones at the helm 
and, of course. Larry Bird. 

Benard King had an MVP 
season with the Knicks and 
Portland, led by guard Jim 
Paxon and coach Jack Ramsey 
finished the season at 48-34, 
six games in back of Los 
Angeles. The Houston Rock- 
ets improved their record by 
15 games. Much of the 
responsibility for this turn- 
around was Rookie-of-the-year

Ralph Sampson, formerly with 
the Virginia Cavaliers. 

The worst teams this year 
were the Indiana Pacers, the 
Chicago terri-Bulls, and the 
Cleveland Cars. Some things 
never change, huh? 

Houston Rocket and long- 
time Washington Bullet su- 
perstar Elvin Hayes called it 
quits after a 16-year career 
with an all-time record of 
50.000 minutes played in a 
record 1.303 games, missing 
only nine contests. 

Well now. its time for the 
playoffs. The Philadelphia 
76'ers will be trying to become 
the first team since the 1968- 
69 Boston Celtics to repeat as 
World Champs. 

The favorites in the race tor 
the top spot are Boston. 

Detroit, Los Angeles, p„» 
land. Dallas, and of 'cour« 
Philadelphia. ' 

The playoffs should be vcn 
interesting, no doubt, and 
with these teams playing at 
the top of their game, the, 
might seem unbeatable. Bni 
Portland finished the season 
losing six of their last seven 
games. LA is hurting as 
Magic Johnson suffered i 
bruised hip and James Worthy 
is nursing an eye injury from 
their last game of the season. 
The hot teams entering the big 
money games are Boston, 
Detroit, and Milwaukee. Phjl-

Spring Olympics 

The Men's Club spring 
Olympics were held Sunday at 
various points around the 
campus. The relay race and

competition came from B- 

Wing and C-Wing who were at 
each others throat, taunting 
each other throughout the 
competition. The first heat, 
the relay race, was won by 
C-Wing. The guzzling and the 
car push were won easily by 
the B-Wing but C-Wing pulled 
it out after a few tricks with 

B-Wing taking second. The 
tug-of-war final was between 
B-Wmg and First East with 
First East pulling B-Wing 
across the line. But again 
B-Wing took second place.

GARFIELD® by Jim Davis 

Kefkdion Writing 

I walked around my back- 
yard. I saw the turtles 
napping on the side of the 
sl.ore of the pond in our yard. 
When they saw me they 
headed for refuge underneath 
lliL- water. 1 smiled and kept 
walking. It was a quiet 
morning, well all mornings are 
quiet in our neighborhood. I 
spotted two ducks in the pond 
too. I tried my best Donald 

Duck imitations, but they 
weren't impressed. It was so 
good to be home, even if it was 
only for a weekend. The 
restlessness of school had 
subsided the moment I got in 
the car to make my ten hour 
trip home to Northeastern 
North Carolina. That's what 
going home always does for 


place that I'l 

comfortable with, a place 
where I've experienced a lot of 
good times and some conflict- 
ing and confusing bad times. 
It's hard to describe the 
feeling that it brings. There's 
just something very sweet 
about getting up early, going 
for a run. getting breakfast, 
and then relaxing for a while. 
It seems the home, in most 
cases, is a refuge, a place 

where you'll find a lot of love, 
not taking anything away from 
school, but there's just a bond 
there that's difficult to break. 

In my last week of college, 
save three hours, I realize that 
a town as small as Murfrees- 
boro, NC holds no chance of 
making a decent living, but 
even so, I know that nothing 
can ever take the place of it. 

People may laugh when I tell 
them where I'm from, but it 
doesn't matter, it's a place 
that I'm comfortable with. 
There's a lot of love there, a 
lot of good memories, and a lot 
of lessons learned there. It's a 
place that I'm far away from 
right now, but a place that I'll 
never forget and a place I'll 
look forward to coming back to 
for a while.

Southern Writers Publish legacy 

What is it? 
For the past few weeks, 
posters and flyers all over 
campus have been advertising 
the coming of The Legacy. 
But the question on the minds 
of most students is "What is 
The Legacy? 

The Legacy is a small 
magazine style booklet pub- 
blished by the Division of Arts 
and Letters. Started in the 
1960's. the publication was 
designed to be a showcase for 
the best poems, shortstories, 
photographs and artwork of 
students of Southern 
College. In 1972, a major 
over occurred in the 
English Department, and The 
Legacy was "lost in the 
shuffle," according to Mrs. 
Ann Clark, Professor of Eng- 
lish. No publication similar to 
The Legacy has been publish- 
ed since that time. 

Then, in 1982. Mrs. Clark 
and Prof. Clyde Garry became 
co-directors of the Southern 
Writer's Club. One of the 
main objectives of the club 
was to revive The Legacy or to 
start a similar publication. 
The first edition was aimed at 
the spring semester of 1984. 

When spring semester rolled 
around, however, the South- 

ern Wrher's Club was busy 
with a major workshop held in 
cooperation with UTC. It 
appeared that The Legacy 
would again get "lost in the 

Four weeks ago, the club 
Executive Committee met for 
a final decision. After a lot of 
deliberation, the verdict came 
"Go with it!" Posters were 
put up advertising The Lega- 
cy. Club members and other 
studetns were solicited for 
poems or artwork. All the 

;re carefully 
screened by a committee of 
both faculty and students be- 
fore the final selections were 
made. Executive Committee 
members worked long hours 
in laying-out the magazine. 
Finally, the magazine was 
shuttled off to the printers. 

The end result will be 
available starting at noon on 
Thursday, April 24. Copies 
may be purchased ' at the 
English Department or at the 
Student Center desk.

New Financial 
Aid Available 

Southern College's Board of 
Trustees voted April U to 

plement a new financial aid 
program that will enable more 

udenls to take advantage of 

private Christian education 

Southern College, 
Because the Board feels 

rongly that an education at 
Adventist college far out- 

rips J 


unity college, the college 

has initiated the REACH pro- 
;ram, said Richard Reiner, 
ice president for Finance. 
■REACH is our response to 
he cost of private higher 
ducation." he said. 

With the new REACH 
irogram. students and their 

families reach as far as they 
an with their financial re- 
ources. and then the college 
caches out and makes up the 
ilTerencc. Students must 
ppiy for all the loans and 

grants available and work to 
fullest potential, and 

parents must reach as far as 

they can, if they can help al 
all. Then ifstudents still come 
up short after gathering ail 
these resources, the college 
will help them the rest of the 
way. Southern College will 
supply up to $2,500 a year per 

"Now we can honestly say 
that we accept students re- 
gardless of their ability lo 
pay," said Laurel Wells, 
director of student finance. 
"Southern College is' com- 
mitted to making quality 
Christian instruction available 
to everyone at an affordable 

Students who could benefit 
from the REACH program 
should call the college toll free 
at 1-800-624-0350. Tennessee 
residents call collect at 1-615- 
238-2051. In the next two 
weeks, letters announcing tlic 
REACH program will be sent 
to all parents of current and 
newly-accepted students.

Southern College?" 


"Mr. Average, what is your 
opinion of Jessie Jackson's 
weekend visit to Chattan- 

"Gosh, was he here? 1 think 
it's great! I'm a big fan of his. 

I especially like his Thriller 
album. Man, that's a surprise

was here. Did that astronaut 
come too?" 

"Yoii mean John Glenn? No, 
he dropped out of the race

have been kind of neat to have 
an astronaut for a president."

care to give your views on this 
year's presidential 


"Well, I knew from the start 
it was going to be close. A lot 
of people I know voted for

him a lot." 

"I was referring to the 
national elections. Are you a

work and intraniurals, but I 
suppose if I was to vote I'd

see our leaders address?"

up with a solution for the big 
liassel over the name change. 
Some people want it left 
Southern. Others want it 
changed to Daniells. And get 
this, some even want it 
changed to Bates College. 
Can you believe that? Just 
imagine if it ever got accredit-

people that you got your 
master's at Bates."
